VERY^ EXTENSIVE
Sir Edward Holden Concludes That
Country   Should   Borrow  Less—
Interest   Heavy   to   Carry
London, Jan. 23.—Sir Elward
Holden, the famous banking authority, made an important speech today
on International finance and currency. After dealing with the position of France, Sir Edward referred
at some length to Canada, India and
the United States.
"Canada, said Sir Edward, had
borrowed in London during tho last
three years about £125,000,000 sterling. During IS 13 she borrowed
about £44,000,000. Her imports during 1913 amounted to about £137,-
000,000 and the interest she had to
pay in respect to the money borrowed approximated at least £15,000,-
000. Her imports for the year
amounted to about £80,000,000.
There was, after paying for her
imports with her exports, a sum to
be provided of about £27,000,000.
As her borrowings in this market
have amounted to £44,000,000, the
balance of her indebtedness, for
which no provision has been made,
amounts to about £28,000,000.
Judging from these figures, it
would appear, in Sir Edward's opinion, to be the obvious duty of Canada to go slowly and expend less and
borrow less. It would be a mistaken
policy, however, for investors in this
country to button up their pockets
against further Canadian loans, so
long as the securities are of first-
class character.
BASEBALL CLUB NOT
TO BE CAUGHT NAPPING
The annual meeting of the South
Fort George Baseball Club was held
last Friday night. Judging by the enthusiasm shown at the meeting the
Northern Interior champions have no
intention of resting on their laurels.
Lots oi business was done. It is the
intention of the management to fenco
in the ball grounds at Riverviaw Park
and charge H.diuission to the games.
The team if anything will be stronger
than last year. While all the old stalwarts have been retained a number of
new players have been lined up. Pitcher Jack Henry has refused an offer
from Manager Brown of Vancouver to
sign up with the Beavers. Jack prefers to pitch for South. The team will
be under the capable management of
Mr. II. C. Merriam. Mr. M. C. Wiggins was appointed treasurer and Mr.
Harry Close secrrtary.
UEST HOCKEV GAME
OE THIS SEASON
Fort (Jeorge umi South Eort Georgo
Play to Draw on Sunday
Afternoon
The best game of hockey ever seen
|n this part of the world was that
played last Sunday afternoon ou the
Morthern rink hete between the
South Fort George team and the
Fort George seven in the series for
the Northern Lumber &. Mercantile
Company's trophy.
The game was evenly contested
throughout, ending in the tio score
of 1 to 1. The teams played five
minutes overtime each way, but
without additional scoring.
Owing to the soft condition of the
ice from the mild weather and heavy
snowfall, it was found impossible to
play the match at the usual time,
Saturday evening. Rather than delay the series, however, it was decided by thee teams to play at 2.30
Sunday afternoon, and a fairly large
crowd assembled to watch the contest.
South played the same team as In
the previous game, while there was
one change on the Fort George lineup. Hum Aldous was laid up with
grippe, Doc Ewert went on in his
stead.
SI Patterson played the star game
for the home team. He was on the
job and the puck all the time, always aggressive and always dangerous. Thrasher and Tothill were also
in at tho finish every time.
Fort George took the first goal In
the first period from a mix-up in
front of the South goal. In the second half Thrasher put a fine shot
past Lewis, the Fort George eo .1-
keeper, evening the tally. When
the second period ended a draw, the
teams decided to try for a winning
Score, but neither side could notch
a goal in the overtime. thoroughfare to Kort George district.
This wee!; the Grand Trunk Pacific
established a regular passenger service to and from Prince George.
Events have followed one another during the past week with
amazing rapidity. The completion
of the temporary railroad bridge
across the Eraser river here was
followed immediately by lhe laying
of steel into the Grand Trunk Pacific terminals. In spite of a few
days' delay lo the tracklayer, due to
damage to the temporary bridge
through running ice in the rivers,
the sidetracking at Prince George
was hurried through; and on Monday
the' Pioneer moved westward. Yesterday morning the first passenger
train left  for the east.
ll is very hard at this stage to
keep pace with the numberless
changes that the coming of the railway must bring about. For example, the old-timer who is about to
take a trip to ihe outside finds himself mechanically preparing to go
soutii instead of east. The railway
is still too new to be fully realized.
It is hard to see the old landmarks obliterated, and yet to further the progress of development it
is better that they should go. The
Cariboo road is a picturesque and
historic old trail, but it has served
its usefulness so far as the people of
this country are concerned.
Commission was laid on the table by
Hon. Frank Cochrane today. This report, brought down was for the financial year ending March 31, 1913.
The total expenditure during the
fiscal year on account of'construction was $13,729,461, making the
total expenditure from March 1904
to   March  1912,   $130,247,152.
No payments have been made by
the commission of the interest on
capital account, nor has the commission refunded any part of the expenditure made by the government
on the approaches to the Quebec
bridge before the taking over of the
latter by the commission as a part
of the N. T. R, Neither of these
items, therefore, is included in the
statement of the expenditure.
The total grading done in March,
1913, was 1,739 miles. The total
miles of track laid was 1,720 miles
on the main line, and 384 miles on
sidings and double track, making a
total of 2,125 miles of track, laid in
all.
The operation of the Moncton to
Edmondson for the year ending
March 31. had resulted in a loss.

CANCELLATION OE RESERVE
LORD STRATHCONA
A contemporary publishes the following ■ tribute to the late Lord
Strathcona:
On the morning of Wednesday,
January 21st, after a brief illness,
Lord Strathcona passed peacefully
away. Canada has lost the grand old
man of whom every one of her citizens wns so justly proud. The Dominion has been fortunate In having
had the services of not a few strong
men who never halted for a moment
in their work of nation-building, a
work often thankless and always
strenuous; and who combined the
ideal with the practical in such a
manner as to enable them to realize
almost every one of their most cherished ambitions.
Lord Strathcona   was   a   nation-
builder in every sense of the term.
All along his faith in the future of
the Dominion wus profound, and he
lived long beyond the allotted span
to sne the full and complete justifi-
c lion of Irs early faith,   Up to the
'.hen he wis stricken with his
. 8    llness he was working for ami
thinking  of Canada.    Lord  Strathcona, although a nonagenarian, was
not upon the retired list.   He was a
worker all his life to the very end.
There  was no question of "too old
't  lift;." with Lord Strathcona, and
in ths iest,ret he affords a notable
contrast to many   who   would    fain
shirk the duty which lies nearest to
them   bi I'-uise   they   think   they  are
e tititled lo a rest.
II is not my purpose to attempt to
give a detailed biography of Lord
Strathcona here. That will be given |
witli a wealth of detail in every
journal of the Empire. I desire
merely to put on record my need for
praise to one of the makers of Canada, and to voice my regret not so
much at the termination of what can
only be described as a life complete
in every respect, as to the fact that
the race of strong men is fast dying
out. The giants are few nowadays.
No longer is the steadfast pursuit of
an object carried on solely for the
sake of that object. Other considerations enter in, the fear of pecuniary
loss, the risk of losing place and
power—these are things which prevent nol a few people from rising to
the anticipations entertained by
others with regard to them. Lord
Strathcona was a wealthy man, but
he was not so always, and in his
stiong belief in one of his enterprises he was reedy at one time to
part with all that he was possessed
of in order that, the enterprise might
not be wrecked. In this case also
Lord Strathcona's faith was justified,
and he, as well as many others, became rich by means of that enterprise,
This Dominion of ours is making a
great advance at the time, but it still
needs the strong man, llie man who,
as Tennyson puts il, "makes by
force his merit known." The work
of ihe> nation-builder is not yet com-
I let ed. and In the life of Lord
Strathcona there will be found an
object lesson of how this work
should be carried on.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that
the reserve, notice of which appeared in the B. C. Gazette on the
29th day of August, 1907, is cancelled in so far as it relates to the
East half of Lot 5316 and the West

While we do not want this
generally known, yet we
would like to siateon the quiet
that we have recently received
the largest consignment of
Stetson Hats ever imported
into the Cariboo district. We
bought them direct, thus saving the middle man's profit.
We have in stock a sample of
mostly every style, shape and
color manufactured by the
Stetson people.
If nature never intended you
to be a handsome man do not
be despondent. We have a
hat to match your face and
under which you can pass as a
man among men.
We do not want you to forget
that there is a great deal_ of
truth in the old proverb which
says that "Fine feathers make
fine birds," but it is the hat
that makes the man,
And while we have said much
about hats here, yet we want
to impress you with the fact
that we can dress the other
parts of your anatomy to
match the hat. We have in
stock elegant suits, underwear,
shoes, top shirts, etc.
If you want to buy hay and
oats in large quantities don't
pass us by, let us quote you
special prices,
We have also a heavy stock of
nails, corrugated iron, granite
ware, which we are endeavoring to clear out at special
prices before the arrival of
freigt Ly steam car.

antee the railway's bonds to the extent of $35,000 a mile for the 450

ou,.v,.^,b, oi mi. i-.iric_ welch, contractor, that George Knvaseff was not
employed by him but by the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway, Judge Mclnnes this morning handed down his
judgment,
In it his honor finds that Mr.
Welch is liable to pay $140.25 to
Kevaseff as compensation for a fractured leg and further payments of
$8.25 per week until Kevaseff is recovered from his injury. The 140.25
represents' the amount, due since
September 13 last, the date of the
accident.
His honor finds that while Mr,
Welch is not the employer of the
plaintiff that he is an "undertaker"
under the act, and is therefore liable
for compensation to Kevaseff for tlie
injuries received while at work on
the railway undertaking. Mr, S,
Alexander argued the case for Kevaseff, and Mr. W. H. D. Ladner for
Mr. Patrick Welch.

ISSIST BUYERS TO PAY
POR    THEIR    LAND
Various Suggestions Being Made on
Question of Those Thirteen
Millions
Victoria, Jan. 22.—Yet another
suggestion is being put forward by
some members of the legislature for
dealing   with    the   problem of the
{13,000,  owing   to   the   province
for land Bold to private citizens.
This solution is based on the supposition thai the desirable thing to do
Is to colled the money rather than
to regain possession of the land. If
Indh It .: ners can not now fin-
re:.' 11 r holdings tlie inference is
[ell to be a fair oue that the property, If it reverted to the crown and
were again sold, would not fetch any
higher, if as high, a price as it did
before. The crown, therefore, has
no particular object to gain by taking it out of the' hands of the present
possessors, or those of them who
may be able to pay up if given a
little time. For tbis reason it is
proposed that the sum due should be
spread over a period of five years,
the arrears of taxes and interest being collected in in 14, and the collection of the principal being made in
'"'tr equal annual instalments, with
»r without Interest. This would give
everybody concerned a reasonable
thance to pull through. At the end
of the five-year period those who
ha'l not by then paid in full could
r«elve title for the acreage for
™ch they had actually paid. This
'l]m>'' it Is contended, would re-
" a large revenue to the gov-
while at the same time
[ w"ul11 perhaps be more welcome

JOHN MacDONELL, Agent.
Dated 21st July, 1913. pany will operate tue fiiamouuiu,
Dunvegan and British Columbia
railway, now completed for 131 mileB
nortb of Edmonton, as far as Mirror
Landing?
Tbis is tbe question that is agitating the minds of people in touch with
railway conditions, wholesalers, people all over the nortb country, and
particularly tbe officials and employees ot tbe railways In Edmonton.
"I don't know anything about who
will operate it, but, I believe it would
be tbe greatest thing that could happen for creating traffic for the C.P.R.
from this city, if our road would take
it over," said D. J. Gunn, ticket agent
at tbe Jasper avenue depot.
It is believed iu some quarters that
one ol the ways tbe C.P.R. will increase ils mileage out of Edmonton
and it the same time gain a foothold
in the Peace itiver country ahead of
the other loads will be to take over
the McArthur railway. This is substantiated by the fact that the pioneer
transcontinental has bought part of a
right-of-way through the west end of
the city. What makes people who
think that way sure of what they say
is tbat the railway has already spent
about $5,000,000 to establish themselves on the north side of the river
in Edmonton, although they had a
station, yards and roundhouse on the
south side for years. They argue
that tbe C.P.R. would not have come
over the river at all unless they intended to branch out north and west.
Others, however, are equally sure
that the Grand Trunk Pacific will run
the Dunvegan, basing their opinions
on tbe fact that the track of the E. D.
& B. C. starts out from the G.T.P.'a
north yard, five miles from the centre
of the city. In tbis case no additional
facilities down town would be necessary as the G.T.P. already has a
double track out to where the Dunvegan branches off, also freight and
passenger facilities in the city.
On the other hand it is stated that
J. D. McArthur, who is building both
the E.D. & B.C. and the Alberta &
Great Waterways, once said that they
would operate the railway themselves. But although application is
to be made to the railway commission at once for permission to run
trains to Mirror Landing, it ia not
known that the road haa any rolling
stock or other equipment of ita own,
and tb .1 e does not seem to have been
any move made by them to secure
down-town terminal facilities. It
will be interesting to watch developments for the next few weeks, when
it is expected some kind of trains
will be in operation. Then perhaps
tho shroud of mystery which has
■ hung the atfaiis of the operating
end of the road will bo lifted.
England.
The British labor congress, meeting at Glasgow, baa demanded tbe
immediate recall of Lord Gladstone.
Open threats have been made that
the laboriteB will vote against Premier Asquith at the coming session of
parliament unless the government
steps in and censures Botha.
This course would mean the defeat of the Liberal government. Tbe
ministers, on the other hand, protest
that South Africa is self-governing
and that therefore they cannot interfere.

The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company are
now disposing of the remaining portion ol their
lots in the new town of Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow rivers.
By those who are in close touch of the true conditions, this new town is considered to be one of
future importance in Central British Columbia.
In investing in Willow River property^ be sure
that your property comes to you direct from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company—make no
mistake in this. There is only one official and
original Grand Trunk Pacific Railway town of
Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser,
Salmon and Willow rivers. It is located on Lot
785. Station site was approved by Board of Railway Commissioners under date of March 26th,
1912, Order No. 16179. We have no interest in
outside subdivisions. For authentic Grand Trunk

SAYS HE IS SOX OF LATE
HIGH   COMMISSIONER
Boston, Jan. 23.—Asserting that
he is tho son of Lord Strathcona _nd
Mount Royal, late high commissioner
for Canada, James II. Smith, of
lirookline, will take steps, il is said,
to obtain recognition of his interests
in the vast estate.
Mr. Smith refused tonight to discuss the subject, but his wife said
counsel had been engaged in presenting his claim lo the executors of
Lord Strathcona, Mra. Smith added
that no court action would be instituted unless friendly overtures
were without avail. She said her
husband was the legal son of Lord
Strathcona,
"He is a full brother of Mrs. .Margaret Charlotle Howard, of London,
who is recorded as Lord Strath-
cona's daughter and heir," she said.
"Mr. Smith was in constant communication with  his  father."
The Smiths and their three children live in a comfortable but unpretentious house on Strathmore road.

Everybody   knows   that   financial
| depression has its rise, nine cases out
of ten, in causes that are not really
vital, A temporary loss of confidence
in the standing of a bank may precipitate a run on the institution,
even if it has its vaults full to overflowing with gold. So a temporary
loss of confidence in the future of a
country may cause a withdrawal of
funds for investment in that country
and the result is financial depression.
It is apparent enough that British
Columbia has the resources, the natural wealth to warrant much greater development than the province is
today experiencing. But the ministrations of men who talk calamity
may cause possible investors to think
ihu all is not well, and to withhold
their funds. It is a condition such
as this that Sir Richard's speech
aimed to avoid.

Kamloops, Jan. 23.—Track on thei
Port Mann-Kamloops section for the
Canadian Northern transcontinental
route is expected to reach the site j
of the proposed big steel bridge at
Cisco, about six miles west of Lytton,
today. The C. N. R. line will cross
the, main line of the C.P.R., whieh
skirts the Fraser river near the proposed crossing, which Is 115 miles
north of Kamloops.
Construction work on the other
bridges on the Port Mann-Kamloops
portion of the line is also well advanced, according to reports received
by the local engineering department.
The viaduct which will cross the
Fraser at Lytton, is said to be more
than half finished, and 75 per cent.
of the work on bridge No. 5, which
will span the Thompson river at the
Black Canyon, five miles east of
Ashcroft, has been accomplished.
Eight of the nineteen steel bridges
on the British Columbia section of
and are now available for traffic.
Steel has now reached a point 1_
miles north of Kamloops, thus considerably lessening the gaps between the completed portions of the
new railway.
DIVORCE REFORM NEEDED
Ottawa, Jan. 17.—The growing
number of divorces in Canada and
the fact lhat there are 4 0 applications already before the house this
session, has forced upon the attention of parliament the need for divorce reform, W. B. Northrup, of
East Hastings, has already given
notice of a resolution on the subject
asking that the problem be taken into
immediate consideration with a view
■ to changes in the law. Mr. Nor-
thrup's resolution is as follows:
"That in the opirion of this house
lhe procedure under which divorces
are granted by parliament and the
consequent unreasonable expense
i thereof are so unsatisfactory, besides
being prohibitive to the great majority of the people of Canada, that
the same should be taken into immediate consideration by the government."
