opening of the highway with some sort

Welsh Newspaperman Walk, Into Vic
torla   Hcte|   and   Loungers
Rite and Bow
Victoria, Sept. 9.���Blr Rlcbdrd Mr-
Ilrlde's "double" came  into town  laat
evening.    There was Iio mistaking the
likeness which was prodigiously faille
ml.    In  fan. so striking  was  It  that
on  the "double's" arrival In  the  Empress   hotel   Inst   evening,   twn   very
prominent   members   of  the  Conser-!
vative  party  in   victoria,  rose  from
lhelr seals In th" rotunda and bowed
very ceremoniously, only to apologise ;
profusely   wlu n  they   saw  their   mis- \
take. ��
The "double" however, has no handle to hir. name. He is plain William
Davis, of Crrdlff. proprietor of th"
Western Mail, and two other of the
most prominent newspapers in the
tight little principality of Wnles. To
n Tln.is mnn he gently admitted bis.
likeness to British Columbia's prem*
Ier, and remarked that when n eer
tnin liritish newspaper published a i
Canadian supplement with Sir Richard's portrait as the frontplec", be
received dozens of cuttings if the
likeness   forwarded   by   friends   who
bad noticed it.
Hrre By Invitation.
Mr Davis, together with Sir John
Courtis nnd Sir Marcuant Williams, is
on an Invitation tour of the Dominion,
(���nil thc party Is accompanied hy Wm.
Pugh, Dominion government special
representative In Wales and inspector
of f'Rn.-nlliin Immigration agencies In
fJrUt Uritaln nnd Kurope. These three
Welshmen were Invited by the Canadian government to mako a trip
through the country and see for them-
reives the prosperity which is everywhere appsrent, and to form their own
views on the situation now existent.
Representing as they do the three
rrcatoBt forces In the civil life of
Wales commerce, education and publicity���they have passed In turn
through everv cltv of Importance from
Atlnntir to Pacific, and havo eaoh
Flored n myriad of Impressions and
formed very decided opinions.
"We have been particularly Impressed" said Mr. Davis to the Times
man this morning, "with the air of
general prosperity throughout the Dominion. We h��ve heard a lot about financial Btrlngcncy, but did not see much
Hlgn of It. As a matter of fact we all
three hold very definite views on the
unmlstakob'e progress evinced In every town, village and hamlet that we
have visited, and venture to think that
all prognostications point to a continuance of that prosperity."
When naked to outline hls views on
the navnl (iiieBtlon, and the manner In
which Canadian naval affairs were
looked upon In the country country,
Mr. Davis very emphatically refused
to say anything at all on the matter.

A feature of the craft will be thc
separate lighting plant and a powerful and independent fire pump whi<:h
is expected to not only protect the
dredge from possible Ore but also
dampen the ardor of nny blaze which
might break ont along the waterfront
As the dredge is owned by the city
this firefighting provision will afford
additional assistance to the already
efficient apparatus under thn care of
Chic!  Watson.
Further down stream linemen were
liusil., engaged in installing six transformers for stepping down the electric
juice from 2300 volt* to 210 which will
provide the current for the operation
of the maFsive derricks, one of which
is about completed, while the other
���will be started forthwith.
The transformers have been placed
on a movable platform which will enable the contractors to move its electrical apparatus to any point on the
piling work in order to serve the liilO
horsepower motors on the derricks.

Santa Monica r.ad race just a month
ago, was lirst in tbe two long distance
motor car races on ibe speedway here
.Numerous accidents marked the
progress of the races and four per !
sons were injured. The most seriously
hurt was William Warren, mechanician Ior HhoadiB, whose Studabiker
turned turtle in tlie small car event
after a steering knuckle had been i
broken,    lie was unconscious tonight.
Frank Bandhoffer, Barney Ohifieid's i
mechanician,   was   pinned   under  Old* *
field's big Mercer when it cast a tire
and turned over in the B8th lap of tho '
free  for all.  and   was  reported dead
A   cursory   examination   led   surgeons
to pronounce him surely marked    for !
death,  hut  a  subsequent   exam nation i
disclosed that he had sustained only |
a  severe   scalp   wound   and   probably ,
would  recover.
Oldfield escaped unscratchrd and
was able to walk to the repair pit��
and report that his companion had
probably been killed.

San b'ranclsco, Sept. 9.���"The best
flght since Ketchel and Joe Thomas
fought 22 rounds at Colma." was the
verdict of the old time critics tonight
whon tho referee gave a draw to Bob
j McAllister nnd Sailor Petroskey at the
lend of 20 rounds.
I Petroskey nnd McAllister fought 20
rounds to a draw a month ago nnd
the decision then was much questioned. Today ihe flght wae even
|    On the score of points,  McAllister
:muat bo credited with 14 of the 20
rounds, llut, on the other hand. Petroskey scored three knock downs���
one In the 18th for a count of six and
wto In the 19th for the count of eight.
McAllister came back in the 20th
like a whirlwind and had Petroskey
staggering and dizzy.
Interest ln the flght centred on McAllister's punch. He showed today
that' he had It. Petroskey had only
two blows that he could land. One
was an overhand left swing that cut
McAllister's lip and the other, after
the 14th, was a right hand uppercut.
| On the whole It wae generally admitted that Mc"'htr�� shewed Improvement. He showed coolness and
recuperative power and whenever he
put a punch to Petroskey'* body there
was power behind It.

plan to establish a  . ystem  of  paved
highways along the Pacific  coast  from
Mexico to British Columbia were ex-1
plained   by   N.   D.   Darlington,     state
highway commissioner, following hisj

California  and  Washington  and  various  other  people  interested   In  good
roads lu the three Pacific coast Btausi
took part.
An organization was formed at the,
Eureka meeting which will have for
Ils purpose the promotion of a continuous system of highways through
California, /regon and Washington.
The state of Oregon had previously
arranged to connect the good roads
system of that state with the Callfor-
dividing the
two states, and Oovernor Lister, of
Washington assured the delegates at
the Eureka meeting that his state
will continue the system to the Canadian border.
The north and south system of highways through the three states will lie
paved like a durable city street, nnd
tt is expected to become one of the
most Important faetors In the development of the entire I'acific coast region.
Several California counties are considering the purchase of state highway bonds in order to further the construction of lite 118.000,000 system In

that the state will buv some of Ils

"The statements of the mayors nf

Hut 1 would like to Inform your correspondent, and through him, the readers of your paper, that the reason whv
speculation Is so intense as to attract
large bodies of men unable to get work
ia that the exemption from all taxation
of personal property, machinery tnd
buildings In the municipalities of western Canada has been reflected ln nnd
adde to the price of land, andt the
small and Insignificant rate of taxation 011 these land values has not even
b��en sufficient to prevent the con-

would be fewer people walking around
these newly-built cities with nothing
to do. Doubtless It waa the Intention
in exempting buildings and Industry
from taxation in these oltles to advance the rate of taxation upon lands
in keeping with their constantly growing value, so that speculators would
ultimately have to become, hallders
and users ot land.
