Four applications Cor the position
of teacher for the Westside school
were rec,-ived at a meeting of the
school board yesterday evening, when
.all the members were present. After
some discussion the question of appointing one of the applicants was referred to a committee, with instructions to Interview Inspector Stewart
before anything doiiulu. is done.
Arrangements    were    completed    for
the purchase ot a number of green
byloplates, flve ol which wlll be u.-_eu
at the Westside school, one or two
at Sapperton and one in one of the
Centra] school rooms. These ar.
used as substitutes for blackboards,
the color being recognized as leas

Vancouver, Dec. 17.���It Was learned
today that the recommendations of
Prof. Prince, of Ottawa, Canadian
member of the international .Liberies
commission, ln respect io the proposed
new regulations for the salmon fisheries of the Fraser river .und contiguous
waters, bear uot the slightest -inioar-
ity to those promulgated by Dr. David
Starr Jordan, United State.- commissioner.
Dr. Jordan recommends to Washington, or at least the draft report prepared by him does���that uo li-hing for
sockeye salmon or steelhead trout be
permitted in Puget sound waters during the years 1910 and 1912, provided
the Canadian authorities -topped Sailing In lhe Prase:- nvvr and contiguous
waters during the sum- years. Re-
|-aiding these closed je'ars Prof.
Prince's draft report is said 'o men-
'ii nothing.
Dr. Jordan in hi.-_ recomm. ndatlons
also urge- thai the length of gill nets
,. limited to 750 teet, which is 150
feet shorter than the short' su net now
in use In the Fraser river fisheries, it
Is slated that Prof. Prince in his report favors maintaining the length of
gill nets at 900 feet In the Fraser
river und twice that length in the
waters of the Gulf of Georgia.
The recommendations of Pro  Princi
ire declared to be conservative *'n the
extreme aud  'his  fact   i-  n sponsible
lor considerable comment, as it vwis
generally expected that thej would be
modelled on lines similar to thos sub-
Itted by Dr. JorJan.

ONE FOR   MR.   HAZEN.
For a, man who was supposed to
have, "swept" New Brunswick last
.March Premier Hazen seems to __e
having a peculiarly unpleasant time
of it. Ihree weeks ago two constituencies which went Conservative in
March went the other way in bye-elections. Stranger yet from the "party
sweep" standpoint, John Morrissey,
Commissioner of Public Works in Mr.
Hazcn'a cabinet, campaigned Ior one
of the winning candidates against a
(straight* Hazen supporter. Now Mr.
Morriss'ey's paper, the North Shore
leader, pointedly reminds Mr. Hazen
that he won power on coalition lines
and promises, assures him that he
can only hope to retain public confidence "so long as he adheres to the
principles for which he was elected���|
coalition and honest government." anj '
remarks suggestively that as yet there
is only one Liberal in his Government,
Mr. Morrissey. From this distance it
looks as if Mr. Hazen held office by
grace of his opponents and as though
the opponents were getting weary of
seeing him return evil for good.
Beacon Light Destroyed.
Prince Rupert, Dec. 17.���A beacon
light was l'ofmd on Stephens island
last week by Captain Newcomb, of the
Canadian fisheries cruiser Kestrel,
who brought it to this place. It is
supposed to have been used by the
American fishing poachers as a beacon to guide them to a safe harbor
where they could clean their halibut
caught in Hecate Strait. This is the
second light found and destroyed by
the Kestrel this year.

quest recently to attend the tariff iu- J

declined to do, but intimated the drift:
of his ideas in a letter of reply. Ofj
those pecuniarily interested in the,
tariff he says:

George Murakami, a Japanese who
was ....,i.< a.ed iu an adeged smuggling case near Steveston some mon_us
ago, and wno was subsequently ac-
cusi d of attempting to enter tht
I'nited Slate,; illegally, has been released by th, Washington state authorities. Murakami had oeen a rea.
dent on Barnes Island, near Bellingham, for twenty-one years previous to
making his unannounced trip to
Steveston, as a result of which he lost
a gasoline launch and a quantity of i
dutiable goods. The case create 1'
considerable interest among local Japanese, as it was practically a test as
to whether an Oriental had the privi-1
lege of crossing the international border, after having complied with all
immigration requirements, and later
returning to his home without molestation.

THE   BLACK   SEA.
Its   Waters   So   Badly   Poisoned   Thai
Life Is  Practically  Impossible.
persons,  probably,  other than
tl gaged in the pursuit of scl-
ence, are aware thai the Black ^ea
presents nn Interest of its own to the
aoologlsl and tho geologist shared by
no other part of the ocean at the pre**
frit day.
Throughout the greater part of th*
ocean the bottom Is the dwelling placa
of a number of creatures whose lmsj-
r.f'ss li is to ?onsu the bodies of the
members of the Burfaco fauna which
after dentb mink to ilie bottom. In the
Black sea. however, saya the Field, ow-
lng to special geological events, such
scavengers are totally wanting ovpr
thc greater part of Hie bottom, so that
the carcasses of the creatures which
fall f-'om nliovp are left to decompose,
���vijii'ii they speedily do at the com-
paratlvely high tcinperature of tha
water.
By their decomposition two soluble
compounds, carbonate of ammonia and
sulphureted hydrogen, are developed
In enormous quantities, while no free
lime, except snch as is Introduced from
ihe Mediterranean, Is left. The volume of sulphureted hydrogen Is bo
great as to poison the water from
the greatest depth (1.227 fathoms) to
within .about e bundrefl fathoms of ths
surface tn such a degree that life, e.**-*
eppi for a few bacteria, Is absolutely
Impossible

Coming Canadians Will Cut  the
Painter  in   a  Few  Years.
London, Dec, 17.���Mr. Halford John
MacKlnder, director    of    the    London
School of   Economies   and   Political
' Science, addressing   the   Compatriots'
J club last night, said that the tendency
I of the younger   generation in Canada
t was toward independence, though they
hardly realized the fact at the moment.
j There   was   a   strong   feeling   almost
| throughout     the      whole      Dominion
I against    annexation    to    the    Unit.' 1
j States, bnt there existed also a stand
i ing temptation  to   give   that     power
j commercial terms which must end In
j political    union.    If  such a coalition
| wer.* formed it would arouse Eluropi an
! hostility, not active, perhaps, ,but still
i real.    In self defence    it    would    be
' compelled to  take   command  of    the
jocean, and the iwwers of the far east,
instead  of looking  to  Great    Britain.
would look to America.   Could Britain
in  such circumstances,    retain    India
and  South Africa'.'    As  Lord    Milner
'said,  the  Dutch   would   be  loyal,   for
i reasons  of   policy,   not of sentiment.
j But  if Canada    parted    from    Great
I Britain   the   empire   would   end,   and
i the attraction for the Dutch would d s-
| appear.
