Ottawa. Jan. 6.���The annual report
of the di lartment of the marine and
fisheries for Canada shows thit the
whole catch In Canadian waters by
Canadians, -luring the season of 1906-7
i.- valued a( $26,250,000. With tne
exception of 1905, when the phenom-
enal catch of salmon In British Columbia swelled the total value of the
fisheries production beyond $29. 000,
000, this Is the largest aggregate on
record.
The most Important fluctuation is
noticed in the salmon industry, which,
notwithstanding a diminuatlon of over
$3,000,000, still heads the list with a
surplus of over $2,000,000 above any
other species. The fur seals, secured
by the British Columbia hunters during the year, realized $:!16,224. Whila
the lobster industry is $500,000 less
than the year previous, thos? of herring and mackerel each show a large
increase; a large falling off, however,
ig noted in sardine industry. During
the last year, ending June 30, the fish
and fish products, including marine
animals, exported from Canada to foreign countries, chiefly to the United
States and Great Britain, amounte.1 to
$12, 585, 808.
Thousands    Engaged
During the fishing season, no less
than 76,100 men were engaged in the
Canadian fisheries, not Including th ���
thousands of persons employed in the
lobster  fishing and  canning  industry.
These fishermen used nearly 7,000,000
fathoms of gill nets and seines, beside.
other fishing gear and fixtures, representing an aggregate capital of $11,-
555,000. The lobster plant is valued at
$1,500,000, comprising all the equipment of the 700 canneries distributed
along Che seacoast of the maritime
provinces. This industry placed on
the market over 10,000,000 cans of thi
preserved crustacean, besides about
an equal number of pounds disposed
of alive, or in a fresh state, mostly
in the cities of the United States, both
aggregating a value of $8,422,900.
The other important branch of the
Canadian fishing industry, that of salmon preserving on the Pacific coast,
during the same period, consisting of
seventy.seven canneries, gave employment to 14,665 persons, and placed on
the market over 30,000,000 pounds of
canned salmon, besides over 20,000,00.0
pounds disposed of in a fresh or salted state. Thus the whole aggregated
nearly 51,000.000 pounds of this king
fish, valued at $5,000,000.
Bounties   Paid
The deep sea fishermen of the maritime provinces received the sum of
$15;i.iiii0 as bounties on their catch of
fish for the past season. Since the inception of this bounty system, twenty-1
five years ago, nearly $4,000,00(1 have !

In connection with the wreck of the
N< rwegian bark Germanic, which took
place in the middle of the Atlantic
ocean on December 9, aq,d seven survivors of which were picked up In an
open boat by the oil tank steamer
Hotham Newton on December 17, after undergoing terrible privations, it
will be interesting to New Westminster people to know that Captain J. L
Card, now of the snag boat Sampson,
was at one time master of the Germanic, having sailed in her from 1883
to 1885, leaving the vessel at that
time owing to its being laid up for
repairs for a considerable time.
In discussing the wreck with a
News man yesterday, Captain Card
stated that the wrecked vessel was of
1295 tons register, and that it must
have been In a weakened condition
when it left Weymouth. N. S.. for
Fleetwood, England, on November 23.
At the time that he was captain, the
vessel was far from iteing new. and
as that is now over twenty years ago,
and the Germanic has been sailing tlie
seas ever since, the barque mu3t have
been poorly prepared to ire et the
heavy storms of the Atlantic ocean at
this season of the year.
Captain Card produced his certificate of disoharge from the Germanic,
this being signed by J. R. De Wolf, of
���the firm of that name, of 28 Brunswick street. Liverpool. A full account
of the wreck and of the rescue of the
seven survivors appeared iu the News
of January 4.
Victoria, Jan. 0.���If all goes well
the application of the company known
as the Eastern it. ('. Railway Co. for
permission to build a railway the first
ten miles of which will run from the
Crow's Nest Pass to the Loop, British
Columbia will within a lew months
have another big producing coal company. An intimation that the company will apply for incorporation ai
the next session of parliament has
appeared for the last few weeks in
the British Columbia Gazette.
It now transpires that back of the
company is D. C. Oorbin, the well
known capitalist, and railway men of
Spokane.
Mr. Corbin has in eastern Kootenay
some seventeen coal measures. J. A.
Harvey, legal adviser to Mr. Corbin,
has been in the city closing up the details which transform the leases into
patented claims. In all Mr. Corbin
will have over 10,000 acres of coal
lands in this district and hence the
importance of the construction of the
railway mentioned as it will tap the
country where the above coal measures lie.
The bill came up at the last session
of the provincial legislature, but was
killed in committee.

Sacramento, Cal., Jan. 4.���After
masquerading for over a year in
trousers, Miss Anna Mary Egger. a
clerk in a delicatessen store in this
city, otherwise known as "Frank"
Egger, today became a 'bride. During
that time "Frank" Egger was regarded by her acquaintances as a rather
mild mannered youth, but no one, exf
cept the woman who gave her the
first suit of men's clothes, knew of
her disguise, or even suspected that
the beardless clerk  was a woman.
She became engaged two years ago
in this city to Ernest F. Brunner
while she was working in a local
hotel. She was then every whit a
woman, but when her finance went
away to Truckee, Mrs. M. Diepen-
hrock, of this city, whom she had
nursed during a long illness, suggested that for her better protection and
convenience she don male attire.
Miss Egger succeeded in keeping
her fiance in ignorance of the change
she had made in her appearance.
When he saw her yesterday for the
first time in two years, clad for all
the world like a man, he was at first
angry, but was pacified when she
promised to again put on the dress of
her sex.
"It's great to he a man," said the
bride today.

ANNUAL REPORT OF

men in these provim   s to enal Ii
io better d. relop i ae   u lustry.
Maj. I). M, Howard, the Northwest
mount l pdlli e offii i who has jus:
been relieVed of his command of the
, most northerly detachment of the
i corps, .nil who for the past two years
has been In charge of the most north-
i eil.. customs port, postofflce anil
i judiciary district in the world, has
arrived back here at headquarters di-
i reel from the wilds of the Far North
I land.
Maj.  Howard's Antic beadquarti rs
; were at Herschel Island, In the Arctic
o;e ui, where,  with a sergeant -and a
constable of the police, he kept an eye
i on  the American  whalers who come
| around Point Harrow from Seattle and
i San  Francisco* to whale and trade In
the North. It has been alleged. In past
years,  that  these whalers had  been
doing  an  enormous traffic  In   liquor
with   the   Eskimos,   and   bad   traded
thousands of dollars'  worth of goods,
in Canadian territory, without paying
any   duty.    Maj,   Howard  and  hi:, detachment collected duty from all the
American ships, and Warned the captains'of the different vessels that any
traffic in liquor would be vigorously
prosecuted.
Work Difficult
The work was found mos; dlffic lit
owing to the facl thai the people ha 1
no means of ibulldlng decent quarters,
while it was almost impossible to hold
prisoners without a guard room, The
liquor traffic, however, was effectually
stamped out and the ens nee of the
police had a most beneficial effect upon the whalers, many of whom are re-
pi rted to be of the worst type of humanity, and also upon the native
population, which has run wild in 11-
< mtlousnes'j and bl odshed, withoul
the least restraint hitherto.
The Yukon, that land of marvel and
mystery, seems to keep its greatest
surprise for a later day. The gold
In the beds of the many creeks there
'has male numbers of poor men rich.
but there are signs that what remains
is no- longer within the reach of the
ordinary processes of placer mining.
There   is   another     golden     Yukon,
however, that  is  believed  to contain
i wealth in almost inexhaustible st  rea,
i thai    lias   hardly   been   tapped.      Mr.
Treadgold,   the   multi-millionaire   <���   a
cessionadre, when here recently, hint-
| ed at Millions that were to be crushed
] out of the rocks or dredged from deep
i channels,   but   he  went   away,  before
completing his story and his not returned.     But   now  come;   Dr.   Afi'i
Thompson, AI. P., from his horn i in
the distant   Yukon,  to  attend  to  his
parliamentary duties at  the Canadian
capital,   to   each   which   it   took   him
nearly three weeks, 'and he, too. has
his  story to  tell. N
Takes  up   Work
In  a sense,   Dr.   Thompson beg'ns
where   Mr.   Treadgold   let   off.     The
Yukon is,   he   said,   passing  through
a transition stage towards permaneat
prosperity   and   settled     institutions.
The creeks,  where the  placer  miner
has  piled his  industrious showl, are
showing diminishing returns.  On  the
other hand, that other Yuko.i is just
beginning to .be exploited,    and    its
working  will   be  on   a   much   larger
scale.   By means of the most modern
machinery   and  plant,   il   is   expected
that it will soon reveal its now bidden   wonders.   Many   firms,   like   the
Guggenheims, of New York, have ac-
! quired claims   and are about to work
j them on  up-to-date  plans.    The  r.ui-
anza, the   Bunker  and  the   El   Dorado
', creeks,  are  already  being  work' d  on
��� principals,    when the richer portions
have been dredged, the bank- will be
washed   by   hydraulic   pressure,  and
I the people of the. Yukon  aire dazzled
! with  the  hopes  that   the   annua!   output  will  top  the $20,000,000 yield  of
! 1900.    So far  more  than $150,000,000
! worth has been the Yukon's contrlbu-
j tion to the gold supplies of the world.
What the  hidden  workings   may  give
out, no man can at present  estimate.
Dr. Thompson says that in addition
i
to the gold deposits, the  Yukon con-
I tains vast natural resourses of silver,
I copper and other valuable metals. The
AYliite Pass and Yukon railway lias al-
; ready built a fourteen-mile spur Into
I a  copper district where  500.0Q0  ton.-,
; of copper are In sight.

Slocan, Jan. 6.���News has lately
reached here of the death under p< en-
liarly gad circumstances of Leo Doi-
ron, formerly of Slocan. The young
man with Wm. Milk and Win. Lawson,
of Silverton, had been up north.
Whiie there he was adjudged Insane
and was ,,eing sent to a sanotarium
at the eoa.st, when, in his delirium, he
evade,! those iu charge of him and
leaped overboard from the steamer,
drowning before help could reach
him.
Leo Dolron was well known In
Slocan, having been here since the
early days. During most of the time
sine,. 1900, he was employed by N. P.
McNaught at the Hampton, near here.
Where part of the time he acted as
foreman! His many good and amiable
qualities made'him generally liked and
jrespected. While working at the Ottawa mine here last summer he was
injured by a cave-in, receiving a
severe blow on the head which is

THE  DISCOVERY.
'l\n' subsidized evening journal,
with thai feeling ever pr sen! of being commanded or muzzled aa tha lit
takes Its. masters, or their interests
demands, feels hurl thai tbe free and
independent press should be the medium through which tue honest and
fearless prime minister of Canada corrects the version given ir. the Honorable Richard McBride of a speech delivered  at Ottawa.
It unwillingly shows Mr, McBride
as being a little short in his stork
of Intelligence for If he read the
words hniii' dlately following those
in dispute. "But these are your sentiments and I am bound tr> respect
them," he could not have put the constriction on the words as he did, He
either misconstrued them purposely,
or he did not understand what lie was
reading, if he road, as Ihe Colum" Ian
says he did, the words immediately
following and Included in the lengthy
paragraph.
The i videnl chagrlm at its Idol being discovered leads the Columbian to
emphasize   Sir   Wilfrid's   declaration,
"Thai  h" would use the   same   language wi re  lie In  British  Columbia."
All  Canada  knows  thai    Sir  Wilfrid
Laurier lias one policy, one aim, on-'
declaration of principle, [or the whole
Dominion  and   wherever  tbe    people
are privileged  to listen to  him  they
know what!ne utters will In principle
lie  the  same  everywhere  from ocean;
to ocean.    This Is all the mora marked when contrasted with the d.diver-.
ances  of,Mr.   Borden   who    .stretched
his words and his policy to suit Uical-'
ly  each  meeting  he addressed   until
his platform  was dubbed correctly us j
one of rubber.   The Columbian would j
make much of Sir Wilfrid's failure to j
���correct   ere  this.    The  prime  minister
is a busy man and if his attention 'had i
not been called  to  Mr.  Mcllride's Interpretation of bis wordsj would per- ;
haps never have discovered that   the|
young  man  had  been  talking to    the I
Royal   City's  youth  in  a  small   upper!
room.    The nonsense that  Sir Wilfrid!
has  taken  alarm   hardly   needs notice ;
because  it   is  demonstrated    beyond
question that, the Libera] government
takes strong.-r hold on  the affections
and confidence of the people as time |
passes and  when the time comas for;
them  to Bj eik   by   ballot   a   solid  con-1
tlngenl will    e electe I in British Columbia to Bttpporl  th i present si ites-
manlike administration al  Ottawa.
TENDERS ARE CALLED FOR
GRADING OF E, & N. ROAD
Victoria, Jan. ii. -Sealed tenders for
the contract of grading the first section of the B. & N. extension to Al-
benii have been called by C. E. Cart-
wright, chief engineer of the railway.
The section comprises that part
of the road running from Wellington
to the head of Nanoose bay.
Tlie prompt action of the railway
will afford work to b large number of
men and will greatly benefit Victoria.
'ii is a still further proof of the faith
which the officials of the C. P. R. have
in the future of Vancouver island, and
justifies the prophecy of those who
state that Victoria will double- its
population in the next live years.

creating a world of wealth in this al-

I which has been idle since it   was ab-
i sorbed by the West Kootenay Power
Co.    It has a capacity of 3000   horse
power,   and   if   applied   to     irrigation
purposes there will be no difficulty in
I irrigating the whole valley, which is
I fifteen   miles   long   and  over   a   mile
' wide.     Electric  Irrigation   by   means
of pumps is already in use on some
j orchards   in   the   valley.-    When   seen
about  the  project,  Mr.  Campbell  admitted that he had gone into the matter thoroughly, taut that be  was not

Refining at Trail.
Trail, B. C, Jan. t>.���The enlargements in the lead plant at Trail have
now reached a i>oint which will make
it unnecessary for the Consolidated
company to make any further ship
ments of St. Eugene lead concentrates
to Europe. In future these concentrates will all be smelted and refined
locally. During the past several years
contracts for many thousands of tons
of concentrates have been made with
European firms for shipment to Antwerp and Hamburg, where the concentrates have always found a ready
market, in competition with the Australian lead concentrates.

Brown Lave, iwel.ui b...uu<_. ul tne
magmnctai Streuou estate in Leicester, England, who, out tor an im-
poliuc mow as a youta, would st.u
be in possess.oa of the estate, is now
in western Utah, working us a day
laborer, ln tha meantime, romantic
disclosures have been made liirough
his relatives, ami the authorities iu
England to Sir Genialle'B attorney,
Frank Prestidge, of Denver.
in the wild days Of his youth he
signed over nis right of entail to the
estate for ��2600. The father, Sir
Miles Cave Brown Cave, died one
year ago, leaving a mortgage on the
property to the amount of ��64,000.
The estate, it is said, is valued at
�� 100,000. A letter received recently
from Lady Isabel Cave Brown Cave,
now in Worcestershire, says in one
place:
"Geniaile has chosen his life, let
^lim abide by it."
R. C. Cave Brown Cave, rear-admiral of the British navy, has also written to Denver attorneys, and thi re is
a strain in the letter which seems to
indicate that if Sir Geniaile would return to England with sufficient money
to raise tihe mortgage and come into
his own again, all would be well. The
Stretton estate itself is in the finest
hunting district in England .and the
mansions thereon have housed, for
generations, the highest of English
nobility.

Suspicions of military circles are at
high tension today over disclosure of
five Japanese men of decidedly military bearing, probably spies, moving
quietly in the vicinity. The sudden
discovery of their presence has
caused the Japanese to decamp. High
military officials assert there is immediate need for putting the forts in
first class defensive shape. A railroad connecting posts with Vancouver headquarters, a local torpedo station and submarines are claimed hi
be among the essentials,
Local photographers, it is reported,

lesl of lung wars thai thla country
has Been, which originate l seven
years ago over a Chinese girl, and in
which more than fifty persons have
been killed and more than double that
number wounded, was declared off at
a meeting of the various tongs held
yesterday at the rooms of the Six
Companies Ui this city.
The trouble started over ihe sale
of Wan Len, a slave girl, to Lui Ng, a
member of the Hop Sing tong, Lui
Ng paid $22011 tor Wan Len. but Ah
Wong declared that thU was nol full
payment As Lui Ng refused to pay
I more, war was declare,l between the
Ping Kan bong and the Hop Sings,
Seeing that the war was liable to
Bpread too Bar, the presidents of the
companies called a meeting last
Thursdaj to settle it. and th.. upshot
of it was that. Lui Ng was awarded
the girl and Hop Sing Is declared to
be in the wrong. A jury of the See
Yups seven years ago rendered a
sirdllar verdict.

Vancouver, Jan. 6,���Nag Tuny, a
Japanese, and a graduate of a Canadian college, ���said today in Vancouver,
that in order to promote a campaign
of publicity favorable to the orientals
it was proposed by the Japanese to
start an English newspaper ln Vancouver.
Nag Tany says that there is great
dissatisfaction with the present government in Japan because of its attitude toward emigration to Canada.
The opinion ln ihe land of the Chrysanthemum ���seems to be 'bat there
should be no barrier in the way of
those who want to come to Canada.
All eyes are turned to Canada, and

cherishes is that some day he will

unless we are sure of winning. We
are not prepared for war at present,
and until we are ready the States can
say all kind of things to us, and we
will not go to war."
"How long do you think it will be
before Japan is ready for war ?" was
the last question.
"About ten years," he replied,
