The journalistic profession baa al I
most an much fascination for young
men as has tlie sia^e for young wo
men. As a mailer of facl ihe tradi
i.i newspaper wrlor, whilst Interest
Ing, is anions. There are fine pri/.e-
to ho obtained; but lhe journalist win
has the ability to secure one of them
would, with equal ability, make from
five 10 ten limes the money in any
oilier  profession.
The young fellow who wants to be
come a Journalist may, of course, be
a KcniiiB, and, within a year or two
lie able 10 f'y 10 the topmost branches.
For there I. no hiding one's light un
'ier a bushel; a preasman Boon shows
the stuff of which he is made.
A knowledge of shorthand is useful, though I for one have never been
enihusiasiic over stenography.    The
more skillful  reporter is he  who can
listen to a speech for an hour's duration  and  write an accurate  summary
of it  within  the space of half a column.   If a man with ambition desires
to put himself to th" test, let him read
a  4-col.   speech   delivered   by   11  political   leader,  and   then  alt  down  and
reduce  it to one-eighth, and not miss
a   single   point   of   Importance.     The
Journalist who can  summarize is,  in
these days of newspaper compression,
] more valuable than ihe man who can
take a verbatim shorthand note.
Read More Books.
It.   is,   of   course,   advantageous   for
1 an  aspirant to  be  more or less fam
lllar  wllh   the   politics  of  the  world.
, and   particularly   with   those   of   his
J own  country     A  daily  acquaintance
' with our lending newspapers of various typoR is essential,    1 do not ad
vocate, however,  a  too close  reading
of  newspapers;   Indeed,   a   legitimate
I criticism   to   be   pased   among   many
journalists is that  ihey confine Ihelr
nailing too much  to newspapers, and
acquire a style without distinction.
The reading of books, novels,  wha'
'���mi like, but well  written and with
distinctiveness of dlclion, is valuable
There should he no Imitation There
should be no attempt at flowery writ
Ing. The journalist should endeavor
to i.e natural, to tell his Blory so that
It Is easily read and niilrkly understood. With his personality, arid onl
of bis reading, lie will unconsciously
develop a Btylo of hla own.
All this can be practiced bv lhe
amateur. The man In the striae with
the Journalistic instinct is constantly
seeing things which newspapers are
glad to publish. A new and original
point of view Invariably finds favor.
The man who says, "Oh, but I never
ver- things suitable for the press," Is
j simply admitting that he Is not a real
The Point ct View.
Everything has  been   written  about
I before;   but  lhe  successful   writer  Is
he  who can  see  things  with  a  fresh
1 eye, and  write about  them  In  an  at-
I tractive  mnnner.     I   remember   Mark
'Twain once saying to me, "Everything
depends on   Ihe  point  of  view.    Qel
an original  point of view, keep thai

The man who feels that he has the
makings of a great Journalist In him
naturally ras'B his eyes to the staffs
of one of the great dally papers. My
firm opinion Is thai nothing Is worno
than starting one's Journalistic career
on a big dally newspaper. It may he
all right, hut as a rule It Is not on
such journals that the best newspaper correspondents are trained. There
Is nothing like th" all round experience to be obtained on a weekly pro*
vinelal paper.   The reporter un -mull
1 Journal is often maid-of all-work. He
writes no'es on local alfalrs. He describes flower ih, .* s. in- reports the
���layings of local magnates; he makes
the oorrespondeuea of eoumry contributors Intelligible; he reaiU proofs.
and, indeed, picks un a variety of
knowledge which will stand him In
excellent stead all his life, no matter
:o what post he may attain,
Should   Soecialize.
II is a good Hung for a jouiiallst
to specialize on one siibjo";. Whatever this may lie it will be decided
by natural Inclination, and therefore
likely lo be done well. As a journalist progresses in his profession, and
he reaches the staff ou an Important
paper, lie will find that the tendency
Is for him to specialize on particular
lines. Whether It be l|je navy, army,
labor questions or foreign affairs, it
is always a "pull" for a man lo know
more about a certain subject than anyone  else  In   lhe  office.
The one thing to be avoided is dullness. One of the principal aris la
to know what to leave out. To crowd
a descriptive article, say a naval review, with details, produces only a
blur uiKin Ihe mind of the reader.
The good writer notes the essentials
in the picture, and then, with It vis-
ualized before his mind, he can describe It In such a way that (he reader
Is conscious of also beholding the
scene. To he able to do that Ib first
class  journalism.
When 1 sav that dullness Is to he
avoided I Indicate at the same time
thai It ia a duty to be Interesting. ;
There are some Journalists who are
able to writ" a bright and entertaining column about a debate on Scotch
estimates in the house of commons
when other men have been conscious
of noihlng but long-drawn dreariness.
Needs   Many   Qualities.
Undoubtedly the qualities required
to succeed as a journalist are many.
There must he knowledge of human
nature, a quickness to apreclate the
dramatic points of the situation, and
nil ability to tell In good terse English whal has been happening. It is
one of the hesl professions In III"
world for a man lo "find himself."
If  success  does  not   come  his  way, j
It  Ib because be has not   In  h'm  the
Ingredients  which    mak%�� particular
success.   Every man rr'-Mvs chance.
As usual,  round  the io ver rungs of
the ladder, there is some Jostling;  but I
higher up there is plenty of room and
plenty of opportunity; and though the
work  Is  hard   the  remuneration  now I
Is better than ever It was. I
Take The  Trail.
I advise every young writer who
has managed to save between i'i00
and ��200 to be bold. Let him pull
up stakes, do not bother about promotion, and go off for a year of wandering. Let him roam about Europe
learning things not wanting to write
about everything he Bees, but meeting all sorts of folks, roughing It,
keeping a merry heart and doing plenty of rending. Thnt Ir the best school
of experience, and if the pen is laid
a&ido f',r a time, it Is surprising the
grip and power in writing which wlll
be shown  when he lakes it Up again.
dr let him go over to the United
States end lake pot-luck na a free
lance journalist. It is a toeeh life,
bul It smartens a man up. If I conld
afford It I would send every young
liritish Journalist over to America tn
learn what enterprlsn and hustle Ib,
and I would bring every young American journalist over to this country
111 the hope that he would get a glimmer of what accuracy and restraint,
of InnguaEU mean.

two outstanding nnd salient features *
of the report of Hon W. J. Bowser.
Commissioner of fisheries for llrltiBh
Columbia, which he rendered to the
legislature yesterday.
Tho report with its appendices Ib

fact that for tho flBcal year ending
March 31 last, llrltiBh Columbia head

In ita fishery products and briefly
points out that the strategic advantage which Itfl geographical position
lendB it, in exploiting the great banks
of food fishes which lie to the westward and north of this country. The
entry of varlouB strong cotiipntilea Into the deep sea fisheries is welcomed
because already exploitation of these
water areas has begun on the part of
Japan although the ports of liritish
Columbia are nearer and more accessible.

Re��ult of Research.
The result to dato of theso ro-
searches nre summed aa follows:
Tho Bockeye apawn normally either
In the fourth or fifth year, the spring
nalinon In itfl fourth, rifth. slxto or
SBVenth   year,    the   female    of    each
si>ocies being preponderating); 'our-
year flab.
Thn young of both aockeye and
Bering salmon may migrate seaward
shortly after hatching or may reside
In fresh water until their second
spring.   ThoBo on tho first type grow
more rapidly Ihan the Beoond but are
subject to greater dangers and develop proportionately fewer adults.
Cobo salmon spawn normally only
In their third year. The young migrate cither ns fry oras yearlings but
adults are developed almost exclusively from those that migrate as
Dog salmon mature normally either
In their third, fourth or fifth years,
the humpback always In their second
year Tlie young of both epeclea pass
to sea aa soon aa they are free swimming.
What Grilse Are.

clfii- Coast  salmon signifies conspictl-l
onsly undersized fish which sparingly
accompany the spawning run.     They ,
are precociously developed 111 advance |
of the normal spawning period of the i

of  the  spring  salmon,  cobo  and  dog
salmon are exclusively males, of   the
sockeye almost exclusively  malcB   except in their aecoiul or third year, of
the cobo or dog Balmon In their Beoond
Dr. Gilbert, with Mr. J. P. Hae-
cock, whose return to the department
na assistant to the commissioner is
noted, also conducted an ttivestlga
tlon of the salmon fishing on Swift
sure Hanks and the Cape Flattery
region where salmon of all varieties
are taken by purse Beine and trolling.'
Their most important discovery was ,
of feeding sockeye with  the   consequent deduction thnt the sockeye does
not set  off  for aome   distant   region
where he spends his deep sea   exist-'
ence fattening  on  some   mysterious
food.     They   formulate    thn    opinion
tbat the young sockeye on passing out j
the straits wander far nnd wido prob-
ably   making   fan-like   dispersal   from j
the  mouths  of their  native   streams
nnd a reverse movement as spawning
time approaches.    The  food   detected
by Messrs  Gilbert and Ilabcock was a
form of ahrlmp. i
The acnulBltlon. by arrangement
with the Dominion, of tho sole right
to hare for oyster culture conaunimat-
ed during lhe year was accompanied
by an investigation of the clam nnd
oyster arena conducted for the de-
partment bv Wlll P. Thompson, an
expert In tbla branch of research.
The scrvlcoB of Dr. Gilbert and Mr. i
Thompson have iieain been retained ,
and also those nf Dr. Joseph Stafford
"f MeOlll University, whose recenl
investigations Into the embryology of
'Im oyster have aroused much comment.
Important as have been the researches conducted by thn department, equally important changes In
regulations bnve been effected by
consultation between tho Dominion
and provincial departments.
Following a conference in Otta, a
laat Bprlng W, A. Found, superintendent of fisheries for tho Dominion, and
D.    N.    Mclntyre,    deputy     commis
sioner of fisheries for the province,
visited and reported upon conditions
In the fishing districts of Northern
liritish Columbia. They recommended
that in each area certain salmon fishing licenses be reserved for white men
with n view to encouraging white settlement In the north.
Hon. Mr. Howser, conferring wltb
Hon. Mr. Hazen, minister of marine
nnd fisheries, the two departments accepted the suggestion and it ls expected that many white settlers of a
desirable class will ultimately connect themselves with the exploitation
of tbis source of wealth.
The result of the recent conferences
between a committee of state senators
appointed by Hon M. B. Hay. governor of Washington and the officials of *
the provincial fisheries department,
are also detailed by Mr.   Howser.
The committee agrees to recommend
a longer weekly close season on Puget
Sound giving forty-eight hours a week
protection, adequate patrolB and
methods of closing traps, provided the ���
Canadian authorities will give an
equally long closed season, commencing twenty-four hours later than the
Washington season.
The report contains the usual Bum-!
ming  up of the salmon  pack of the I
province.    This was exceptionally en-
oouraglng in the case of  the Fraser. ���
where the sockeye pack was the best
of   many   off-years.     The    spawning
beds,  too,  of  the  upper  Fraser  were
more adequately needed than in other |
off years.
The   Skeena   run   of   aockeye    was |
somewhat   disappointing,   Showing   a j
falling   off   while   lhe   spawning   beds |
also were not stocked as fully as desirable.

At a meeting of the Fraser Valley
Publicity Bureau In the Progress Club
quarters, Vanoouver, yesterday arrangements as to the establishment
of an exhibit in the Vancouver organ!
nation's exhibit, hall were made and
plana were laid for a summer publicity campaign. .Mr. K. 11. Heaps,
the  president,   presided.
Shortly niter noon the members of
the bureau were entertained ni luncheon by the Progress club, following
which many Important speeches dealing with the need for co-operation of
the municipalities' and cities were delivered by prominent Vancouver citizens and members of the Fraser Valley l'ubllclty  bureau.
One Central Board.
One central board of aldermen consisting of eighteen members, to be
elected by thn people generally and
not by wards, to govern the city of
Vancouver and the municipalities of
Burnaby, South Vanoouver and Point
Grey, was the suggestion contained In
an address hy Mr. J. \V. Weart. The
mayor. Mr. Weart continued, would
be chosen not by vote, but by the
aldermen  elected   by  the people.
"The general manager of a large
business concern is not chosen by the
shareholders, but by tho board of
directors, They pay for brains, nnd It
should be lhe same v.ay in civic gov
ernment. The mayor Bhould be paid
a salary and should devote all his time
to his work. It is mi necessary that
he should be one of the alii inien, but
a business man should be chosen for
the position," said Mr. Weart.
He went on to Btate thai pn 91 1 '
methods were nol business-like and
that 110 elector, were he running a
big business would think of allowing
it to be run by four separate bodies when oim could do thi
work as well. Some of the savings
in having one centra] board would be
that there would, for instance, be
only one engineer, who would lay OIll
all work and thai the aldermen would
not have any axe to grind, not being
elected by any ward, bin the whol '
city, and so each would get equally
and   one  not   lavished
with Improvements at the expense ol
the others.

* dilh's report as royal commissioner
appointed to Investigate the affairs of
the Farmers hank and relations of
the ex-minister of finance, Hon. W. S.
Fielding, and the treasury hoard there
; to was tabled in the commons this
afternoon by Hon. \V. T. White. The
conclusions reached in tlie report may
be briefly summarized as follows:
Tiie blame for the failure of the
bank involving a net loss to the depositors of 91,806,437, is ascribed to
recklessness and fraud of those entrusted wi;h tin- management   or the
j bani: and not to granting of certificate
by the treasury board.
ln so far as the treasury hoard is
concerned the commission finds that
there is no ground  imputing any  Im-
! proper motives to the ex-finance minister and his colleagues and the most
that can properly be charged against
I them is "an error of Judgment"; this
error of judgment laying In accepting
ihe repeated assurances of Travera as
to the correctness of the sworn statement   nf   Ihe   hank's   affair?   without
making a sufficiently searching inquiry us to the truth of the allegation
made by Sir Edmund Osier. Mr. David
Henderson,  M P . and  others.
The chief justice further finds that
Sir Edmund Osier and Mr. Henderson
did not think 11 worth while to bring
before ths house of commons lhe action of the treasury board in granting
the certificate and thai this "may be
>bssrved as probably indicative of
their view ns to tlie gravity of the

London, Feb- 28. -"General" Mrs.
Drummond, on being Invited to state
her views on tlm Buffragette outrage at
Row Garden, when the tea pavilion
was burned, said that both the arrested women bad been voluntary
workers at the offices of Women's
Social and Political I'nion, adding:
"We ure proud of such women. We
have not an ample reserve of militant
women to carry on our campaign Indefinitely. We shall go as far us the
government cares to let us go. People will soon realize who is to blame,
and then the government will be compelled to grant our demands."
The   tea   pavilion    was    a   wooden
building of the Swiss chalet pattern.
Like other building on the grounds it
had  tiro extinguishing appartas.   Th
fire started  In  the box
hose pipes  were stored
swept  up  the  walls  in
within  twenty   minutes
was a blazing ruin.
It is said that the arrested women
wore men's clothing under their
skirts, apparently with a view of escaping in that disguise.
Gentle  Creatures.
In the neighborhood of the burning
building cards were found, hysterically worded, demanding votes for
women. One of them read: "Peace
on earth, good will to men���when
women get the vote- Two voteless women."
The suffragette incendiaries, how-
ver, again blundered in their main
(jbject, which appears to be to
cause irritation to members of the
government. The tea pavillion is
leased by the Board of Works to a
I inn of caterers and the property is
Insured, so Ihe direct loss will fall on
the insurance company, unless, as Is
possible, the financial provisions of
the Riot Act may be invoked.
"Tho Wasps" Is the name of the
latest band of recruits to the suffragette legions. Their sole mission Is to
get to church attired In black, relieved with brilliant orange scarves,
and sit passively in order to '"demonstrate spiritualism militancy" against
the injustice to Kngiish womankind.
The    name    "The   Wasps,"    is,   of
course, taken  from their startling at-1 with it.

The trust company came
