frankly amazed when the Mexicans
sought the moral support of the
United States government to bring
about peace in Mexico by another
revolution headed by Diaz, The oem-
mittee had no ideu, it Is said, of the
eXaot purpose of their visit other
than they wished to present inferma-
lion about the situation in Mexico.
Members of the committee flatlv

Trade Unionism.
The report comments on the growth
of trade unionism and the disappearance of all personal relations in lhe
lamer industries and further notes
that British Columbia In regard to
the number of men connected with
unions, rallies higher In proportion to
population than any oilier province in
Canada, The contention of employers
that International unions are inimical to the Industrial interests of Canada is noted, bin the commission finds
no evidence of such effect and on the
other hand ihe fact is mentioned Ihat
many large corporations employ managers and superintendents and ars
controlled hy directors who an' aliens.
The commission recommends that any
employer  who  discriminates agalnsl
a workman merely because he is a
member of a labor union, should be
. pi nallsed, and on the oilier hand thai
workmen who work during times of
strike should be protected agalnsl lhe

the fact that the first real trouble has been over come and
the first difficulty surmounted without undue bitterness
augurs well for future amicable progress.
The city council as a whole, the harbor committee and
the chairman of that committee, Alderman Annandale,
are to be congratulated on the able manner in which they
dealt with what at one time was a delicate question and
threatened to be even dangerous.
all citizens of New Westminster who have at heart the
best interests of the city will hear of the amicable agreement reached between the city council and the St. Mungo
Canning company on the question of waterfront leases
and the city's right to prosecute the harbor improvement
scheme. The terms of the agreement which appear in another column, show on both sides the handiwork of keen,
capable business men and the fact that such an agreement
has been reached out of court and even after legal proceedings had been started goes to show that the determination of the 1914 council to live in the closest possible relation to the people it represents already is bearing fruit.
A protracted suit or a series of legal actions would
have clouded the satisfaction of seeing the harbor plans
developed, while such conditions would have meant the
spending of thousands of dollars that otherwise might
have been used in the furtherance of the big waterfront

a   Real  Opportunity  for You at

and the Dominating Centre of the Bulkley Valley Which
Will Make You Big Profits
(From    Vancouver    Daily    Province,
January 15, 1914.)
Smithers Growth
Has Been Amazing
From   Forest   to   Thriving
Town in Less Than One
Hundred Days.
Will   Have   Population   of
1.100 When Gold Spike
Is Driven.
SMITHERS, I! C, .Ian 16. Despite i'ie prevailing talk of dull times
which has beep general throughout
Canada duriine t'ne past few months,
northern Hrltish Columbia seems not
i.) lime heard of it. Ther" is no Indication that the news has penetrated  to this  part of the  province.
'ihis new division point on the
Grand Trunk Pacific Elallway has set
a record in dull time* that is far
ahead of the performance of other
young cities in general prosperity.
From fort-Rt to thriving town in
less than om- hundred daya has been
the neord of .Smithers. The first
lots ��'-r>- offend for sale In .September and since that date there has been
an average of one modern   business
building or residence erected every
day Although born under lowering
financial skies in tin' fan end of 11*13.
it  has  grown  with   surprising vigor.
In September tho pew division
point, was but a small clearing In the
forest and a huddle of tents stood on
the townsite. About thirty persons
made up the entire population. Today there is a population of over 700
and there are 125 buildings, while
more business houses and homes are
being erectfd every day. and every
train brings additions to the population
Work has just been started on a
���government bridge across the Bulkley
river at this point, which wlll connect
the rich farming district on the other
ride of the valley directly with this
town. The government has spent
$50,000 (luring the past year on road
work about Smithers. . and plans to
spend a like sum during the coming
season. Private enterprise is constructing other roads that will hrin?,
the rich tributary country nearer Lo
thin thriving centre.
Among these ls the highway to the
Copper river coal properties to the
west, where a big development is
promised (luring 1914. There was
never so much work on the mining
properties all about .Smithers as now,
and owners are driving tunnels and
milking borings to determine the extent of the rich ore veins In the nearby mountains, Now that the completion of the transcontinental railway is a matter of a few months, more
talk than ever before is heard of a
smeller for Smithers, and a big milling
development is at hand.
Settlers an- coming Into tho district in large numbers, and there is
a good demand for farms. Many
ranches of Uie Bulkley valley, which
have hitherto been farmed indifferently, will thia year know for the first
time careful tillage. Better results
than ever are confidently expected In
Bulkley  valley agriculture.
Nothing but optimism prevails
hereabouts us the now year opens.
Although other sections of Canada
look for a notable improvement in
business conditions during 1914 It
could hardiy be better than the old
year in northern Rritish ('olumbia. If
t*'n* same rate of growth is maintained for the coming four months, and
there la every reason to believe it will
be far surpassed, Smithers will be an
Important city of at least 1,500 people
when the golden spike, completing the
(Irani! Trunk transcontinental line, is
driven this spring. As soon as transcontinental trains arrive the movement of people Into this section of
Uritish ('olumbia is expected to bo
very large, and by next. July this population estimate will unquestionably
be  much   increased.
Smithers is the only freight and
passenger division headquarters
on the main line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific between the western terminal, Prince Rupert, and
Prince George. The railway
company is spending over $300,-
000 in Smithers for shops, round
house and other division point
facilities. This means a big railway payroll and prosperity for
the town.
Smithers is the dominating center of the rich Bulkley Valley
which has, according to government bulletins, about 300,000
acres  of  arable  land,  besides
large deposits of coal, silver, copper and lead and almost unlimited water power. Smithers is,
without question, the fastest
growing young town in the interior of British Columbia. It is
bound to be the only big town in
tbe tateitov between Prince Ba-
pert and Prince George.

Hundred Lots
were sold in
Vancouver in
six days.
$12.50 DOWN.   BALANCE $5.00 PER MONTH
These lots start ten blocks northwest from the Cty Hall Square at Smithers,
the accepted centre of this wonderful new town, rig-it ou both sides of and
near Fifth avenue, I'art of the property is absolutely clear, while the rest is
( uly slightly timbered with light poplar and spruce. These lots are slightly
higher than the business section, and all of them have good, hard soil. They
nre absolutely dry and well drained. Every lot is an excellent building site.
The title to every lot is absolutely perfect, coming direct from a Crown Grant.
These lots alio designated on the plan as SMITHERS ANNEX.
Smithers can grow in only one direction, and tint is northwest. The wonder-
lul growth which has already taken place has been in that direction, and the
history of every large city in the west is being repeated at Smithers. The biggest growth is always to the west. And there is one big thing to be remembered. Smithers is not a boom town. It is not a possibility- not a dream. It
is a large, well established, thriving community, growing every day, with rails
already iivand regular train service, with business buildings, homes, churches,
theatres, electric light plant and over 700 people. It is a freight and passenger
division point for a transcontinental railway. It is the natural distributing
and supply centre of a large, rich district, lt is backed by vast natural resources, by the Buppot of one of the largest ralway companies in the world,
by the optimism of the people already there, by the amount of money already
invested there, and by the big future In store for it with the opening of trans-
cintintal traffic tills Spring or Summer.

We are not trying to sell you a lot at $300 or $500 or $1,000, but at $42.50, and
only 10 blocks from the centre of the town and In the path of its growth. That
is C'.ie only way you can make money, big money. When you buy a lot for $500
or $1,000 you have to wait longer to make a profit than when you buy for
$42.50. It you sell it for $100 you will make over 100 per cent, on your money.
And these lots are bound to be worth every cent of $100 or more when trans-
cntlnental traffic is established. The time to get an interest in Smithers at
This ridiculously low price is now. The big profits iu real estate have always
been made by those who got in early at a low price. The reason why some
are poor and some rich is not a matter cf luck. Success is only attained by
improving one's opportunities. Failure is the result of waiting, inactivity
and doubt.
Let us tell yen more about these lots at Smithers and this great opportunity.
The small number of lots offered at this low price will not last long. Next
offering will be at a higher price. Come in at any time and investigate this
opportunity. We will not importune you to buy. There will be no oblgation
on your part. But investigate today, now, and don't let this opportunity slip

The commission recommends thai

oltles and municipalities be empower-j

.-it ruction of scaffolding. The appoint
inent of an assistant electrical inspector, as well as tin- promulgation of
regulations respecting different voltage ;- recommended. The government I
s also advleed to Institute a system'
of first aid instruction in logging and
mining camps,
one of the most Important features
of the report is the recommend ition;
of compulsory slate insurance and the
repeal of the "Workmen's Compensation act" Tin- commission find the
existing system unsatisfactory and
recommend tbe establish menl of a

to dangerous employments, bin oilier

lie*  commission  is  further of  the
! opinion that the decision of the compensation board should be final and
I conclusive- and not open to review In

itself should have jurisdiction at  Its

The commission is further of the
belief thai compensation Phould not
be payable where it. is proven that the
injury is due solely to the serious and
wilful misconduct of the workman, unless death or serious disablement ensues. The act should apply to dependants of workmen coming from all
countries and not be limited to workmen coming from countries which
have reciprocal legislation.
The commission considers that occupational diseases, such as lead puis
oning are risks of particular employment and believe that such employ*
ments should hear the burden of thes*-
risks as part of the cost of production
and that workmen suffering from
them should be Included in the plan
of state insurance.
Coal Miners.
An important feature of the report
is the finding of the commission on
tho contention that miners should be
allowed to appoint outsiders on their
gas committees. The difficulty of the
position of the miner who acts on a
eas com*inittee is referred to. It is
said that such a miner if he reports
the mine free from gas is exposed to
the sneers of a certain section of his
fellow workers who believe he is currying favor with the management. On
the other liand the commission finds
that the most t'lorongh and efficient,
inspection would be made by employees actually engaged in the mine
and who would understand the conditions of the mine in which they work
the fiurnar of I and would also have a personal Inter-
est in seeing that the mines were kept
clear of gas. thus feeling more responsibility In regard to the efficiency of
this inspection than mere outsiders
wculd be apt to do. Ii is recommended that the members of the gas committee be ( lected as at present from
the employees engaged in the mine,
bul be selected by a pithead ballot of
lh. ��� miners.
In the ers: of supplies the commission find the miners have a real
grievance and thai the operator should
inyi he permitted to derive a profit
from them and recommend that employers be forced to furnish all supplies at co.-t.
The commissioners  report   in  favor
of operators being obliged by statute
to erect waih houses, the cost of maintenance being borne by a small charge
on the miners.   Collective bargaining
is approved and various recommendations  made  regarding minor  matters.
The commission advise the installation
of  speaking  tubes  and  telephones  in
,,f i all shafts and all mines where the dis*
. tance from the exit exceeds 1000 feet,
I In order to provide for rases of acci-
! dent or sudden emergencies; and fur-
I ther recommend that all passageways

sumed his discourse, but. his lordship
[ had uot finished his defence of the
prisoner. Later, when he was charging tlte jury, the judge, while he Impressed tin* twelve men that the prisoner had practically admitted his guilt
on the count cf unlawful assembly, he
gave them every reason to think that
Richmond -would meet with nothing
but lenient treatment from the bench.
"Vou have nothing -whatever to dn
with the consequences of a conviction"
said the presiding judge. "That is
for me and I have told you what I
Miink of the accused."
The   verdict  of   guilty   of  unlawful
assembly was In due course returned
and  his  lordship  lived  up to his  implied  promise by giving  ihe prisoner,
ils  liberty  on  suspended  sentence.
Incident Number Two.
Following this Incident of the morn-l
ing cann- incident number two, Immediately   after   the   luncheon   adjourn-1
Mr. Rubinowitz, who was again act* 1
ng In tiie defence of A If Wardell, ar-1
raigned  on  two counts  in  connection
villi   number  three   rlol   at   Nanaimo
ot   August,  objected   to  the  crown
bringing on eases without giving him
*vi  full days' notice of the intention
to do so.
"My learned friend, Mr. Taylor,"
sa'd Mr. Rubinowitz, "certainly did
-' I a poison who Is uot associated In
nny way with me in this defence of
* - Intention, but I did not hear of it
till 1 o'clock today, your lordship. Mr.
I Taylor.    I    believe,   told    Mr.   Foster,
I but���"
"Who Is Mr. Foster." Interjected thp
I presiding Judge.   "He has no right to
! be   sitting   there,"   and   his   lordship
j pointed to the president of district UK
Of the U,  M    W. of A., Who has held
down  a  chair at the port side of the
lawyers 'table ever since the Vancou-
I ver island cases Started four months
Unexampled   Affrontery.
"I have said nothing while Mr. Foster has beep participating not to say-
Interfering in these cases, telling
counsel what to do and giving counsel instructions on information he gets
In his own way as to how jurymen
may be expected to view these cases.
What uses he makes of the exceptional
privileges he has been permitted to
enjoy I do not know, but I consider
It a piece of unexampled affrontery on
the part of Mr. Foster to occupy the
position he does at the table if he Is
not personally interested In all these
accused. I suppose he does it. on the
Instructions -of the organization with
which he is connected. It Is abusing
my hospitality and I have permitted
Mr. Foster to sit there only because
I did not wish anyone to be able to
say thai. I had done anything to hinder tin-  defence In   Ihese cases."
Referring to the contention put forward by Mr. Rubinowitz that he should
have two ch-ar days to secure witnesses in all liis cases, the presiding
judge took occasion to refer to tho
manner in which    defence witnesses
had bee*-, brought from n distance at
the expense of the crown.
"I have been very much surprised."
j n marked his lordship, "at the genier-
| oslty of the crown in allowing rho
1 number of witnesses brought here at
, the crown's expense to testify in be-
, half of the defence, many of whom
! should never have come at all. Take
i yesterday for an example, nine wlt-
j ni ssps were on the stand to prove one
point for the defence.    In spite of this
generosity   there   are,   unfortunately,
agencies at work misrepresenting what
takes place right here In open court.
How   much  of  this   sort  of   thing  ds
heard by the jurors I cannot say, but
jit all tends towards unfair trials."
Incident   Number  Three.
It was at this Juncture that John S.
Qlynes,   of    Abbotsford, one or the
[large   panel   of   jurors   in   attendance
at   the  special   assize   court,   rose   In
I his place in the body of the chamber
1 and launched a suggestion at the court.
Mr.  Clynes intimated  that it  was the
practice  in   England  to  '.-ave  t.he  presiding judge pass on the evidence of
witnesses for the defence brought at
the crown's expense, and If their testimony turned out to  be  Immft'teWal
to have the witness' pay withheld.
Mr. (ilynoH opined that It might be 11
good thing to adopt Ihe same line of
procedure In the present trials.
After hearing the suggestion the
onurt proceeded to business again, oon-
victlons being registered as noted
