evening next will relate to the present ferry service, and in this reject Secretary S. W. Fisher is in
teceipi of a letter from the Vancouver Automobile Club, iu which
several objections to the existing
service are embodied and the suggestion is thrown out that a delegation from these two bodies get
together and endeavor to arrive at
some determination which would result i'i a prompt betterment of the
-service, in the way of giving a
greater number of trips.
The main objection of the Auto
Club seems to be that there is now
no trip made in the afternoon between the hours of one and six p.m.,

LOSES SIGHT
OF HIS EYE
Mr. Thomas Todd Sustains Loss of
Left Eye When Gauge Glass
in Boiler Breaks.
Mr. Thomas Todd, night watchman at the McLelan Lumber Company's mill here, had the misfortune to lo*se his. left eye on Thursday night last when the gauge glass
on the boiler, near which he was
standing, suddenly broke, the pieces
flying in 'every direction. Several
of the flying splinters struck Todd
about the face and neck a��d one
lodged in his left optic, inflicting a
deep gash.
The injured man was hustled to
the General Hospital, Vancouver, as
soon as possible, and last Sunday
evening was successfully operated
upon by Dr. Bouchier and the eye
removed.
Mr. Todd was upwards of fifty
years of age and had resided in
Ladner for a number of years. He
is progressing towards a rapid recovery and much sympathj U felt
for him  in his misfortune.

A   Bill   Introduced   by   Hon.   \V
Bowser  Provides   for  Power
to   Impose   Fee.
Hereafter the Iieutenant-govern-
or-in-council under powers conferred by a new act will have authority
to require all fishermen in the
province to pay a tax. The measure, insofar as the question of fees
is concerned, follows .out the principle observed in the collection of
license fees from huntsmen. This
particular Fishery Tax Act. however,
makes no distinction between the
sportsman angler and the commercial fisherman. The commerclad
fishermen who are employed during
the salmon season by the canneries
have been of course covered by other
regulations providing for various
net licenses but so far nothing has
been done in the way of collecting
a fee from the lake or coast fisherman who goes out with a troll and
sells  tUe  result  of his  day's  work.

being againgt the applicants.
The application    was    concerned
which did not take in the whole island Mr. Nelson spoke similarly.
Mr. Jardlne said If the mistake in
surveya .vas made by the government, the government should pay for
the re-survey.
The chief supporters of the proposed re-survey were Mr. F. N. Trites
and Mr. E. A. Cleveland, the latter
of the firm of Cleveland & Cameron,
to whom the re-survey has been en-
I trusted. The former said that in
order to register certain lands east
of No. 5 road in the registry office
he had been obliged to define lt by
metes and bounds. He said Steveston needed a re-survey badly, and
if the whole Island was surveyed
again it would save many thousands
of dollars, besides endless trouble.
Mr .Cleveland estimated the cost
of the proposed survey at $6000.

Senator Choquette said the object of

every criminal they could secure. He
did not think was a good thing for
the public. Attention was called to

Reeve Lougheed explained the ob-
Which permitted the Legislature to
expend such large sums on works of
development, which placed the province at least ten yeais ahead of what
it otherwise would have been. The
actual deficits have not, or will not,
for the two years in question,
amount to more than half of the
estimated deficits, owing to actual
expenditures being curtailed, but in
any event tbe government's policy
of expenditure was a definite one
and one for which it accepts full
responsibility.
Heavy Demands,
"From all parts of the province
have come demands for roads, trails,
bridges and public works of every
kind. To ihow 10 what extent the
requirements In the way of roads

by the estimates received, It will require the enormous sum of $66,000,-

years to come. In a rougher way
it has been estimated that between
$100,000,000 and $125,000,000 will
be ultimately r< quired.

VICTORIA, .March 5.���Amend- I
ments to t.ie Game Act, whieh have !
beeU the subject of considerable dis- I
eus'sio.. among niembres during the I
last few days produced an argumeu- j
tative debate that became heated at j
times during yesterday afternoon's j
session of the legislature.
Hon. W. J. Bowser moved to re-I
consider the amendment introduced |
several  (lags  ago,  providing free  li- '
censes for farmers over the electoral
districts of the licensees.    He claimed that  farmers as a rule did  not
shoot out of their own electorate and
that the elimination  of  the license
tax would cut down the revenue ob-
ained  from  this  source  by  25   per
cent.
The Premier said that for a long
time he had been opposed to game
licenses and on the suggestion of
the farmers themselves had put a
stop to the sale of game. He argued
tnat the exemption of farmers from
the provisions of the act would be
considered as class legislation.
Mr. Parker Williams in opposing
the re-entry of the clause said that
the member for Cowichan, who had
originally introduced It, wa3 in a
better position to know the wishes
of the farmers than the Attorney-
General.
In opposing the re-admission of
this clause Mr. Hayward said that
he could not agree with the Attorney-General in this matter. He said
that among farmers shooting was a
necessity and not a luxury and that
the game procured was used for
food or for the salvation of their
crops.
Mr. Lucas, member for Yale, suggested the repudiation of all free
licenses and on a division the Attorney-General's motion was carried,
twelve voting with Mr. Hayward.

difficulty was that several owners

In the destruction of the Marine
hospital, on the former Indian reserve, an old landmark of tire city
disappeared. It was an inglorious
end that came to the institution, for
forty years a prominent structure in
tlie city, but for some years past it
had censed to be utilized for work
for which it was erected, and latterly it had become a menace from the
Standpoint of health and a refuge for
undesirables, who have been using it
for living quarters. The work of
destruction was In the hands of the

To Aid Missions.
The Women's Auxiliary to Missions held their annual donation
party on Tuesday afternoon in the
schoolroom of Christ church cathedral. The object of this yearly gathering is twofold���namely, to endeavor to promote interest in the

it, and to raise funds for the missions. The,work lies chiefly in Hay
river mission and tlie McKenzie river
diocese.
Government Pays Taxes.
The city treasurer has just received from the Federal authorities at
Ottawa, a cheque to the amount of
$13,000, covering taxes on government property here. This amount is
for taxes due upon the old post office building for the years 1910 and
1911. The taxes for 1907, 1908 and

The erection of a large water
tower, east of the roundhouse, will
be commenced immediately thai the

of the delay in commencing lias been
caused by the company having the

their superintendent and men who
'should have been here on December
some time ago. 15 were held up at Blaine by the

ol the recent order-in-c.ouneil preventing skilled and unskilled labor

The Hand That Moves The
Lever Saves 162-3 Per Cent. ��
of Your Coal Bill
Here is the opportunity for the housewife to
deal the high c st of living question a hard jolt
without any effort on her part.
The way is to make sure that her new range is
controlled by a Gurney Economizer, which will
save 1 ton of coal in every 6 burned in an ordinary
range.
The Economizer is to the stove what the control lever is to the engine or automobile. Without
control neither is efficient.
With the Gurney Economizer it is possible to
quickly vary the heat of the oven. Various foods
require different temperatures. The Economizer
keeps this desired temperature absolutely uniform.
It also means that when cooking is over, you
may have a cool kitchen and still hnve your fire
going ��� while you can have the fiercest heat in a
few minutes by a slight pressure on the lever.
If you possess a GUrney-Oxford your advantages
are innumerable. The Divided Flue means heat
for every hole on the stove. The New Special
Grate guards the lowest fire. The Broiler exposes
every inch of the coals.
These features are .exclusively "Gurney-Oxford."
It will furnish your kitchen handsomely���it
will do your work adequately.
