In ihe course of an interview yesterday Mr. Jordan said. "In accord
ance with a treaty between Great
Hrltaln ami the United States sign��*tl
last April it was agreed to appoint
a commission to draw up statutes
governing International waters extending from the Atlantic to the I'*-

task of preparing a report for presentation before the first of January
next. Our duties are to deal with the
entire question of the fisheries in International waters���the best means for
their preservation, conservation, Improvement and extension, close seasons, Implements of capture, flsh

THURSDAY. AUGUST 20, 1908.
Do   Not  Forget.
Do   nol   forget   that  our    national
importance was first made known to
the world by Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
BABCOCK  AGAIN  OUT.
Under the caption "Policy Is Vindicated" the News-Advertiser of Tuesday has the following*.
"The policy of the Provincial Government In restricting fishing above
the Now Westminster bridge on the
Fraser River seems already to have
been vindicated, if reports being received by canners and the Govern-
iii-'iit lire true, and there is no reason
to doubl thai they are These re-
l>orts are to the effect that there are
already more salmon on the Bpawnlng
grounds of lhe Fraser than have ever
been known there In any previous
year, li is said that there are more
sockeye at Seton Lake Hatchery than
have ever been known there since it1
was built. The flsh are even reported
to beat Clear Creek near Lillooet, and
near the junction of the Bridge River
with the Fraser, points at which they
have, been very seldom seen so early I
in the season. Passengers on the C.
P. R. along the Fraser River also say
that the Indians on the Upper Fraser
are already making a good catch of!
salmon, which they are drying on
their racks, something that for aj
number of years pasl they have not
been able to do till the latter part of,
August.
"All this seems to be proof positive
of the wisdom of the Provincial regulations that  forbid Ashing above   the
bridge,   as   in  former   years   fish   that!
escaped below the New Westminster
bridge  bad   small chance  of escaping j
the nets of the fishermen above.    Of
course  there    have    been    numerous
complaints   from   fishermen and   can-;
ners,  whose old field    is    closed    to'
them,  but  the   policy  has   been   generally a','].roved by the trade, who believe that if it is continued for a few
years  the fisheries  will  be built    up
again to the point they formerly occupied."
Could anything be more barefaced
and ridiculous in an attempt to entrench the canners, and the Government, the tool of the canners, tn their
position to make the Fraser river a
spawning ground only for the purpose
of feeding their traps. We accept the
statement as correct in which it is
admitted that more sockeyes have
reached the Seaton Lake hatchery
than has ever heen known before. The
writer of the item w.as unaware of
the circumstances, aud being so, has
"outheroded Herod." The facts are
that there has been as many boats
fishing above the Westminster bridge
as on any previous yexir and that the
regulations sought to be enforced by
the Provincial authorities have been
disregarded. True the offenders have
Ibeen summoned before the District
court but they fished just the same.
True the fishermen have been persecuted, but they have fished just the-
fcatne. In the face of this fishing
which the Provincial Government has
heen unable to prevent, the fish, according to the News Advertiser, have
reached the Seaton Lake hatchery and
the upper reaches of the Fraser. and it
is claimed the regulations have allowed them to go up. If this be true
why not go on "ad-libitum and make
a carload of regulations, for remember the fishermen fished just the same
as   if  they   never  existed.
The item goes to show, if Its contents be true, that there was, and is,
no necessity to harrass and persecute
the honest, industrious resident fisherman for despite their catches the
fish have reached the spawning
grounds, and is another instance of
Mr. Babcock being out in his surmises
and that he knows as little about the
habits of the sockeye as the McBride
Governmenl does of disobeying the
instructions of its masters, the
canners.

SIR   WILFRID   LAURIER.
The Premier's capacity for performing work and enduring strain is a
standing marvel to those who know
him most, intimately, even more than
to the general public, who have only
a vague idea of the duties and distractions inseperable from his high
office. Nol long ago Sir Wilfrid
Laurier afforded the laity some amuse
ment   by telling an assembly of medical practitioners bow he had falsified
hysician's  premonitions by  reso-
prefer Su be most endurlngly remembered.
(iwing to persistent preoccupation
with exacting public duties the people
of Canada have for many years seen
little of the Premier in person; The
announcement that he is about to
make even I brief tour of Ontario will
bring great pleasure to his numerous
friends and even to his fair-minded
opponents wherever his addresses are
to be delivered. One of the chief
sources of his unprecedented and enduring popularity in the admirable
self-control, by the exercise of which
he is abb' to discuss public questions
in such a way as to arouse the enthusiasm of his friend, without wounding the feelings of his opponents.

Benjamin  F.  Wright.
Benjamin Franklin   Wright, who as  the father of the prohibitory j
amendment to  the  Iowa  constitution,   was  born     In   Vernon.    Ohio, ;
August 20, 1837.   In early life he  settled  in Charles  City,  Iowa,  and >
for nearly forty years he has edited   newspapers  in   that   city.     Ha -..
Berved as postmaster of Charles City for thirteen years, receiving his )
commission from President Grant in 1st*?.    Hut it is in the work of j
prohibition that Mr. Wright has achieved his greatest fame.   In 18_0, ������
chiefly through his efforts, the Iowa   legislature  submitted    the   pro- I
hlbitory amendment to the people  in  spite  of the  strong opposition
of the liquor interests.   It was canned     by    30,000     majority.     Mr. j
*    Wright was one of the most fearless  speakers   during that struggle, i
|_    and on several occasions he was threatened with mob violence.  After i
��    the adoption ofthe amendment Mr  Wright returned to his newspaper jj
J    work, which he has only recently  given   up   on account    of    failing 5
1    health. ;.

Thirty Fires in July.
lluning July Nanaimo suffered slight
-hocks, due to no fewer than thirty
fires which broke out in the lmmedi-
ati vicinity, while this month, up to
the present, there have been some
fifteen, the last of which Tuesday occurred close in.
Between Brenton and Ladysmith a
large fire is raging, and a quantity of
valuable timber has already been de-.
strayed. The fire is strongest at the I WANTED���Situation
point where the old No. 1 extension
mine used to be, while in parts it Is
said to be threatening Ladysmith. Owing to a breakage in the C. P. R. telegraph system on the island it is difficult to obtain accurate information,
but the outbreak is undoubtedly of a
serious character.
Locomotive Sparks Blamed.
The prevailing opinion ln .Nanaimo
is that these forest fires, which are
becoming more frequent durng the
long spell of dry weather, have in
nearly every case been caused by
sparks from the locomotives on the
E. & N. trains, lt is said that the
screens are not being used as much
as they might, as the engineers find
that these spark arrestors injure the
draught and cause the trains to slacken speed. In view of the large

Easier Grade to New Westminster.
Coming to the plan for the New
Westminster city and interurban lines.
Mr. Sperling indicated a change in the
existing order of affairs, which includes both these extensions. "It is
our intention he said, "to relocate the
three-and-.a-half-mile stretch of the
interurban line from Gilley road to
New Westminster, so as to give ns an
easier grade into the Royal City. At
the Gilley road we will strike south
and take a sweep into the city, entering back of the carshops. Over this
new rente our regular interurban traffic will he taken to Westminster.
Present Line Will Continue.
"It is not our intention, however, to
abandon the present route from the
Gilley road to New Westminster. As
soon as the new lnterurban line Is
completed we will place a New Westminster service on the run. thus serving the residents in the western suburbs of New Westminster Work on
the new line will be started early next
spring. The company's plans for the
double-tracking of the New Westminster line now include the stretch between Vancouver and Central Park,
and this work will ultimatelyt bo extended so as to cover the entire system."

The impasse between the C. P. K.
company and Capt. J. C. Bruce, own-
; er of the vessel which bears his name,
: has apparently reached a satisfactory
1 close.    The streamer Favorite, which
i was purchased  some    days    ago  by
i Capt. Bruce for service on the downriver run, will make her first trip to
, Steveston  under    her    new    owner's
' management today, and will be main-
I tained on that run until further notice.   The C.  P. R.  streamer Transfer will be  continued on the Ladner
run for a few days longer.
An acknowledgment has been    received  from   Capt.   Troup, of  the C.
( P. R., that the Transfer will be taken
1 off the down-river  run   by  the    end
>of the present month, or ever sooner.
j Tuis  assurance was  secured  through
j the efforts of .1.  A. Cunningham, late
'owner of  the  Favorite,  and  that    he
] is satisfied   with the good intentions
Of the  railway   conipany  Is evidenced
by the fact that  he has given i_apt.
Bruce a document  to  the effect that
the sale oi the Favorite is not to be
binding  unless  the C.   P.   R.   boats
I are taken off and kept off the downriver run.
