Instead of haying tire ward divisions of the city run along tlie avenues, the whole b'jlaw was changed
last night at tire city council meeting lo conform to the lines laid down

Aid. Maftheson moved, seconded Vy
Aid. Blair, that the Mayor' he authorized to see Mr. Dunsmuir with a

The cemetery bylaw amendment was

Aid. Bcveridge, with a view to
having the govempicnt per capita

wlun there would be two additional
teachers to pay, suggested that the

Trustee Greaves, who was present,
being asked for his opinion staled
that tlic teachers said the number of

high, there being as many as 75
children iu one room, at least twenty-five too many. To this Aid. .Bcv-

CAPT. RYAN' MISSING.
About two months ago when
big liner Machaqn reached Victoria,
from the Orient, she had among her
passengers a Cant. Ryan, who was
said to'belong to the Camuluui mih
tia, and who was bound for In-
borne in Kentvillo, N.H. When the
vessel• moored at the outer dOcks,
the newspaper men who boanbdhir
made earnest efforts to connect with
the captain, as they understood he
had been to the theatre of war in
the Far East. But the passenger,
they were told, had landed here, ami
an attempt was made to locate him
in town, but it was futile. Recently the Victoria police received u
communication from Major t'olville.
of the intelligence department, in-
:l*iiring for the whereabouts of Capt.
Ryan, who had not roaehed his home
The letter stated that Ryan, who
was a member of the militia corps
in Kentville, bad gone to the Kai
East immediately upon the breaking
out of hostilities there. The Iirst
intimation his relatives had of his
return from across tho ocean was
upon reading the Victoria papers. As
two months have elapsed since hen
and he has not boon seen or heard

it is feared something has befallen

From an examination ol'a number

THE WEATHER.
The somewhat; fragmentary reports from thc Atlantic coast ofthe
fierce winter storms they have already been suffering from, offer- a
keen contrast to the weather wc arc
enjoying on this other extreme ofthe
continent. Here we can yet hnd
roses blooming iu thc gardens, rot
with the profusion of summer, but
sufficient to give life and color to
the seoac, erysanthemums ami violets
are full of (lowers, pansies still put
forth their beautiful blossoms anil
there are quite a number of other
(lowering plants that it is not too
late to cull a nosegay from. Apples
of course are still on the trees rud
.fruit may still be gathered from thc
cultivated blackberry vines. Frosty
days and snowfalls of course are by
no means unknown here, but we have
so little of these winter accompaniments, thnt we do not regard thorn
as a necessity to be faced. ;_\vr
very hot and never very coin wc
are iu tbo pu ition of the contented
man, with riches neither too much
nor too little. H is a dangerous
thing to write of thc weather; it is
just as sure a way fo bring i storm
as killing a daddy-long-legs spider
will make it rain; but wc (at.not
help occasionally fooling how favored
wc people arc here compared to the
poor fellows freezing in wolf skins
coats or sizzling to death ii paji.inas.
LATEST IN CRUISERS,
he three armored cruisers of the
current shipbuilding programme
which are to be laid dowu at Portsmouth, Devonport and Pembroke will
reach thc high water mark in cruiser construction;
The new vessels, which will lie nam
ed Minotaur, Shannon and Defence,,
will practically be battleships.
In both power and size they will
exceed anything of their class afloat.
The following arc thc particulars of
the ships:
Guns—Four 9.2 inch; ton 7.5 inch.
Shells—Mil pounds and 200 pounds.
Rate—Four shells per minute.
Penetration—2_ feet of iron.
Armor belt—300 feet of 6-inch steel.
Speed—Twenty-three knots.
Horse-power—27,000.
Boilers—Wuter-tuihc.
Displacement—M.000 tons.
Cost-About £800,000.
Mr. Phillip Watts, thc designer,
made a study of warship aUactfiwhcu
be was in private servloo at thc
gfceat firm of Armstrong, at Tynewido
and his investigation led him to develop a compilation of the speed of
Lhe cruiser with the battleship's
strength in guns.
Thc broadside discharge will lie
100 pounds heavier than in our best
cruisers. The guns will be longer
and more powerful, and their striking power three and a half times
as great as that ofthe latest cruisers afloat.
Plainly described, the new cruisers
will be as effective at throe mites as
other cruisers now are at Iwo miles,
and in general power they will, lie
half as strong again as vessels of
the County class and twice as powerful all those or oarlhv design.
Tho power of attack: with 0.3 inch
and 7.5 inch guns is greater than
that of the newest Kicnch ship, Ihe
Edgur Quibet. Tlio 0.2 inch gum
will ho mounted in pairs on barbettes on the Forecastle and upper aft
decks. Tho 7.5 inch guns will bo in

CIGARETTE GIRLS.
And now it is the girls »*i o    aw
in danger of turning cigarette tends
according     to thc investigations nl
the school  board of a Ppnn.sylv.xuia
town. When good     old William Ppun
and bis sober visage*!  followers settled  that portion of what was tol.c-
come thc United States,     he little
thouiglht that thc young] women would
become so worldly wise as to copy
the toUicco habit from the boys. Hut
if the story be true a great per ccn-
tage of the 150 children who are addicted to the habit of cigarette smoking is composed of girls. It seems
natural for a French or a Spaiikh or
Mexican girl to puff a cigarette, but
it looks altogether different for those
of a northern race aad docs not Ite-
come them. For the youth of cither
• to indulge in the cigarette habit    is
had; it saps their vitality apparently worse than even the stronger pipe
or     cigar. It   causes heart  trouble,
weakens  thc brain and  will  power,
and takes away all ambition and d<o-
sirc to succeed. The youthful  Quakers seem a precocious lot,.

SHREWSBURY
AS CAB OWNER
There aro 20,0(10 cabs in London
and nearly all of them belong to one
limn, and a nobleman at that, for
the premier carl of England, he of
Shrewsbury and Talbot, has a vast
income from the cab business of the
largest city in tlie world, says the
Boston Herald. The earl gives his
pet hobby as the "cab trade," and
frcquintiy drives them, and although
he is a man of vast wealth, lie seeks
his fares as eagerly along the Strand
and Piccadilly as any coster oabby
that ever cracked a whip.
It is imposlr-iblc for any one who
lias visited London lo think of that
city without a background • of hansom cabs looming up through t.'ic fog
and smoke that still cling to iris
memory, for cabs are much a part'
of the gloomy old city as Westminster Abbey or the Parliament hausc.
Next to howling along on the top
of a 'bus there is nothing that the
London streets have to oiler quite
so delightful as a ride in an easy riding hansom. The smooth motion,
thc sense of freedom, and ihe spice
ol danger ever present as the dating
Jehu of tho cab grazes hubs ami
horses with splendid skill, go to inak
up the keen eu.oyment of a cab drive
over the asphalt .pavement.
Tho wise person picks Shrewsbury
and Talbot hansoms every time, for
- tlicy arc strictly up to date—rubber
tires, air cushions, Russian leather
upholstery anil ivory llltings. These
things marked a revolution in cabs
when the young earl started out to
run nis cab company, lie was the
first person to introduce rubber tired cabs in London and Paris: Thc
horses attached to his cabs arc well
groomed and clean limbed, and the
harness black and witli sliinimr 'irass
mountings not to mention that tlic
Shrewsbury and Tai hoi cnlitiios nre
obscqiuioiis and smart in silk hats
and buttonholes.
All these luxuries cost arc no more
than the inconveniencies of a shabby
call, unit n> there is such an ami)
of cabs in London why may not oue
take his pick of tire best there are?
Aside from tlie enjoyment to be
derived Irom a dash over, asphalt
pavctuclits iu a London hansom, feu
people realize what these two wheeled chariots' mean to the great city,
for the Loudon call constitute- a
mighty institution that is highly
commendable for Ihe utility and com
fort it alloids af a wonderfully low
price.
The cab industry is in the hands
of a larrge number of men, about
4,0011, many of whom own three or
four cabs whicli they let out, and
arc known by the title of "iniishcrs"
Tire Iirst large cal) company ol
any note was that of Ihc earl of
Shrewsbury and Talbot, founded in
INK.'!, his stables at Tlxall accomodating 150 horses with their grooms
Tlie finest cabs in London belong tu
this company.
The London Imperial Call company, a recent enterprise, has undertaken thc management of about TiOO
calis of an improved pattern. Tlic
company has a large depot at Gray
Inn road, witli stables, sheds, shoeing forges, harness rooms and paint
ing and repairing shops. At Chelsea
too, it has built a modern stable,
llnec stories high, fashioned in a
square about acuvtc where tlic cabs
stand.
Before a cab is allowed to go on
thc streets three payments have to
inndo-5 shillings for tiie driver's license, 2 pounds lor a hackney carriage license, paid by tlie owner to
the police authorities at Scotland
Yard, aprl 15 shillings lor carriage
duty, also paid by tlie owner to the
inland  revenue.
Before, however, the owner can get
his license Iris vehicle must be seen
ami inspected by the police. Clcrk-
enwell police station is tlie clilof centre, and here, on Mondays, Wednes-
dnyd and Saturdays, there is an official in attendance to examine cabs
and issue the two number plates,
one to lie fastened on tlic inside and
tlic other, Ihc larger one to be fastened outside at tlic back.
Every cab Is examined and licensed once a year. As a check on possible negligence Hie back plate has a
device on il, ns well as a number.
This year It is the royal anus, next
year il, will lie a crown and the yciyv
alter the royal nrnis again; so that
a poliee official may -tell at a glance
bow matters stand with a cab under suspicion.

CAN EITHER
FISH OR FIGHT
One     ol the early actions of the
Russo-Japanese war not exploited in
thc
lain has awarded the Riinilord Mctl-
the daily papers is related by
in Seattle. This is tbe story:
This is the story:
"It was a little after war had fcren
declared that we were working up
toward the north along tlio coast of
Manchuria. Now, there's a river called the Cka, and it's never been fished out, and when you say that you
arc putting it very mild, because the
Oka is so swarming with salmon
along about spawning time that
man can't row a boat on account of
thc swarms ol them. Up near the,
head of tlic Oka is a little town,
where we put in to do some trading.
We had barely anchored in the bay
when three Japanese schooners s_il-
od in and made for the head-waters
of the river. OI course they werc
after thc fish, and tlicy didn't have
to go more than a mile toward the
head waters belore they fell in with
.ill the fish they .could carry. They
'sent out boats, and inside of seven
days they bad thc holds of those
three schooners packed tight witli
salmon.
"Well, tlicy werc done with the
Oka river and wc were done with the
little town, and I guess both of us
were about to pull out, when wc
clapped eyes on another boat cut-
ling away on thc horizon. It wasn't
n schooner and it didn't look like u
freighter, and it wasn't a irjrealj while
before wc made out that she was a
gunboat. SomclKidy oughtr to have
had a camera to make a picldrc of
llie way those Japs scurried their
schooners back into the river lo get
out, ol gunshot. They didn't know
just what thc cralt was, but they
had their suspicions, and, as it turn
cd out, their suspicions were just
about right.
"We watched the little fighter'Willi
the Russian Hug Hying steam in and
cast anchor. She couldn't chop; her
way into the river tlic way the Japs
did, because sho drew loo much waller. A boat came alongside to ox-,
amine our papers; then it rowed
hack to llie lighting ship, while the
Russian's Hold some sort of consultation on board. It was pretty
clear lo us that they had had news
of the Jap siiips and knew just where
they were without asking lhc policeman.
Wo were certain of this when the
Russians disembarked llince boat
loads ol men with guns and pointed
them up llie mouth of the river, Willi
a crew of us following. We followed them up the stream till tlicy
rounded n sharp curve. Then, by
thunder! tlicy stopped short. . We
rounded the turn and slopped short,
too, because it looked to us as if
that whole landscapo spelled trouble.
Those Japs had lashed their three
schooners together and anchored
llicin. And every blessed Jap was
leaning over the side and shaking a
gun in our direction. It looked unpleasant—mighty unpleasant. A Bus
siun ollicer stood up iu Hie stern ol
bis boat anil shouted something al
them. They yelled at him like a
crowd ol kids until one little fellow
Willi a scarred lace turned loose his
rille and things began. It was the
prettiest light I ever saw. Neither
side had anylhinli larger than rifles,
hut the Japs being higher up, liad
Hie advantage. ' Time and again
those murines would charge, only to
In) driven back with shots and stones
that gave more than one man his
finish.
"At last the Russians dropped
back, resting on their oars and looking up at tlie Ashing schooners,
while the Japs jumped around on
tho decks as lively as ever—thai is,
those that were still in jumping condition.
"It seemed to us that thc lies I
tiling the Russians could do would
be to snake out a little rapid firing
gun and sink tho whole business. 1
reckon Unit they thought ol It, too,''
and were getting ready lor some
such move, when all ot a sudden wo
beard the biggest bind of a whistling
down in tho harbor. The gunboat
was signalling to her crews.
In a minute tlie Russians turned
their boats' noses down the stream
and  we climbed     out ol thc bushes

Tlie manufacture of cement is one
of the best developed industries in
Germany. During tho last ten years
a large number ol factories have
been erected, so many, indeed, that
an overproduction begins to- manifest
itself, followed by ruinous competition. Tlie phenomenon may lm observed in other branches of German industry, also. To avoid the disastrous effects of such competition the
principal manufacturers of Southern
Germany resolved some years ago
to create a syndicate for the purpose of regulating production and
prices. According to the arrangement thus made, the. participants obliged themselves to hinder as far as
it was in their power the erection of
thc new mills. The negotiations
that led up-to the establishment ol
the syndicate were long and painful.
By means of the new arrangement,
the producers of cement hoped to bo
able to supply the demand and to
get remunerative prices.
After the agreement was reached by
the cement manufacturers one-fourth
of the factories were closed, and yet
those which arc still running arc riot,
able to sell more than one-half ol
their product. Consumption increases so slowly that these factories are
not able to count on constant employment, and regular production for
llie next ten years. Iu part ol Germany only those have been able to
face the crisis and to continue the
exploitation of their work which
nave liad considerable capital and
which, because of their magnitude,
have liecn able to produce cheaper.
It is easy to foresee that the mnnii-
acturcrs who have joined the syndicate and who have closed up seven
I their mills to guard against overproduction will not sit down tranquilly in thc face, of the now factories tiial have just been opened. Asa
matter of fact, tlic erection ol new
mills is destined to give rise to a
new struggle in which llie competition will be frightful. The prices
fixed by the syndicate, however, airo
far from giving satisfaction to buy.
crs, since capitalists think Hint they
will be able lo establish puil'table
competition. Tlie result of tliis rivalry will be a new drop in prices
and the presentation ol conditions
particularly attractive ailb fav.raole
to foreign purchasers.
When one sees an annual increase
in tlie foreign trade of Germany and
uutcs tne enormous figures which are
attained at present, one cannot realize tlie sacrifices and losses by which
this progress lias been made. This
touches a great many German products. Take, for example, iron. It
is necessary to consider moro than
the quantities exported; it is necessary lo keep in mind the benefits
realized. Now, as a matter of fact
the benefit amounts to practically
nothing. Many houses worjc at a
loss, because they desire above all
things, to avoid a break Willi their
consumers, gained after so much difficulty, hoping always lor better
conditions.

Famous Poplar Creek
Suit
After many ifays Tailzie has lie-
come (Irmly established .in his pluctT
claim located over a part of a lorto
claim at Poplar, the lode claim being tlie celebrated Lucky Jack says
the Vancouver World, of Friday
Tanglie ilias been rtoscriboti as a claim
jumper, a liold-up man, a Idaci.mailer and a thief, obeying not the voice
of tlie golfl comiiiissioner. Mr. Taiig-
ho has had imieji dillienlly in obtaining a t'ille to bis lUawir claim antl
has inrideiiUMy (flaccd,. bis name in
tiie law libraries nf ih country, bat
at  lai.t be lias the claim.
It was in Si'plei; b"r, 1008 that
Tannic located llie placer claim ovci
the Lucky Jjick. The Luck) Jack
was abide claim that sprang into
sudden fame as a Uiodcri) !■ i Dorado

tb.it was mostly gold over whicli
armed men stood . guard day awl
night.
Mr. Tangbe heaut and- inyostigatei.l
Evidently he found tb;.| ui tins .use
all was gold thai glitf ircil, and figured that the ledge had t..-i there
for some lime ami must have ■- iii >■■-
i d mui li wear and tear from : I v
Poplar climate. This yvbirlil <ansf

Ijcarinw rod. in break of. an'd I'lieiit:

i .iii for Ta.ngbe, ami Mr.
naid, K.C,, al;-o of Kuss-
I..11.I. driended tIn- bnclvy Jack from
the lnrnatli-Nif the plaiufilf. Mr. Jus-
lii'e Alarlin held that the title ol
Mt. Tanghe lo his pl-acor claim was
perfectly good, so Mr. Morgan appealed and Hie two parties have
fought over the ground before the
full court here yesterday and this
morning, the case ending before
lunch in the dismissal of the appeal.
Their lordships decided that the
claim located hy Tanghe was a howi
hdc placer claim and tbat Tanghe
located it in good faith as a placer
claim ami not as a blacl;maiking
scheme.
Chief Justice Hunter added that
ihe placer net should he amended so
as lo provide Lhat no placer claim
can be located over a lode claim except wilh the permilsion of thegohl
commissioner.
Mr. MacXciil states tbat an action
for malicious persecution of Tanghe
will be commenced against the gold
commissioner at' Poplar.
Dr. West, will be in Ladysmith cm
thc 171h inst. for the last visit oF
thi.1 year. MaU1 yourself and your
family a Christmas that will always
be appreciated. -
