|Terrible Fatality Attends
Celebration of Empire Day
at California Resort
CROWDED PIER COLLAPSES
| Faulty Construction Causes Wreck of
Amusement Pier at Long Beach and
Holiday Makers Crushed in Ruins-
Later Reports Say Sixty Victims.
Long Beach, Cal., May 26:���
Thirty-six people, mostly women
and children, were killed and
over 140 injured in the collapse
of the pier at the entrance to the
municipal auditorium.
The tragedy occurred shortly
before noon on Saturday when
United Societies of British born
residents of Long Beach and a
large number of visitors were
gathered on the great amusement pier for the celebration of
Empire Day. Some 10,000 people
were assembled on the pier when
the land end collapsed. Hundreds of people on the top deck
were dropped down on the heads
of other hundreds crowded on
the deck below.
The lower deck then gave way
and the victims were dropped
down a chute of shattered woodwork to the tide-washed sands,
twenty-five feet below.
The cause of the accident was
the overburdening of the pier.
If the doors had been unlocked
at the proper time, it was asserted, the crowds could have got
into the auditorium, instead of
massing at the doors, where the
weight overwhelmed the pier
supports.
The crowd massed about the
auditorium doors was composed
mostly of women and children
who had gathered there before
the Empire Day parade had ended. Hence the large number of
women among the dead.
Long Beach, May 29:���Evidence in the inquest into Saturday's horror, when some sixty
persons perished, showed faulty
construction in the pier which
collapsed.
New Judges For B. C.
Ottawa, May 28:���The minister
of justice today gave notice in
the house of a resolution for the
appointment of an additional
judge for the British Columbia
court of appeal, another for the
supreme court, and also two more
county court judges. No names
are as yet mentioned for the
appointments.
Peace Is Arranged
Tho' Allies Quarrel
London, May 29:���Turkey and
the Balkan allies will sign a treaty of peace tomorrow.
London, May 26:���The strained
relations between the Balkan allies show little improvement. A
Times despatch from Athens
says that the Greek fleet, while
passing Kavata, was fired upon
by the Bulgarian shore batteries.
This incident, following the severe fighting at Saloniki has created a painful impression at
Athens and the Greek government is making urgent representations to the Bulgarians that
the danger of war between the
allies distracts attention for the
moment from the peace negotiations with Turkey.
HIGH ASSAYS FROM
HARRIS MINES ORE
The shoot of rich ore encountered in the north drift on the
185-foot level on No. 3 vein of
the Harris Mines is improving
with every day's work, says
Duke Harris, who was in town
yesterday. The face of the drift,
170 feet north of the shaft, now
shows 18 inches of solid ore, an
average sample of which assayed
135 oz. silver and carried $155.40
in all values. There is on the
hanging wall eight inches of ore
carrying a large proportion oi
gray copper, which assays 673
oz. silver and returns total values
of $446.68.
Wrecked in Fog
London, May 29: -The American liner Haverford, bound to
Philadelphia, struck a reef while
entering Queenstown in a fog,
It is believed she will be a total
wreck. One thousand passengers
and the crew were all saved.
Choosing Liberal Leader
Vancouver, May 29:���The provincial Liberal convention is now
in session at Revelstoke. It is
believed either Ralph Smith or
S. S. Taylor will be chosen as
Liberal leader. John Oliver is
thought to be out of the running.
Trial by Fire Proves Fatal
Winnipeg, May 29:���The primitive ordeal by fire to prove guilt
or innocence was tried here last
night with fatal results. Steve
Zahrynuk, a Galician, who suspected his wife, Anna, of infidelity, saturated her clothing with
coal-oil and applied a match.
The victim was a bride of a
month. The husband, who is in
jail, sayB he had his wife's consent to the teat.
Premier's Mother 111
Ottawa, May 28:���Mrs. Borden, mother of the premier, is
ill. Hon. Mr. Borden accompanied her on a special train
from Ottawa to her home at
Grand Pre, N. S.
Italians Lost Three Hundred
London, May 29:���Official reports of the defeat of the Italian
army in Tripoli on May 16 have
just been received. Over three
hundred Italians were killed and
wounded.
Their Majesties Return
London, May 29: The King

NAVAL BILL IN
UPPER HOUSE
Senator Ross Moves Amendment To Kill Borden Naval
Aid Measure
TALK OF FALL SESSION
DEVELOPING NEW
TOWNSITEJN BULKLEY
Smithers, the Bulkley divisional
point, is a busy place these days.
Over forty men, in four crews,
are engaged in clearing and
grubbing on the railway reservation, and are making a good
showing. W. S. Henry & Co.
have begun the work of clearing
on the townsite proper, having
been awarded the contract for
the removal of timber from
eighteen blocks and several of
the main streets. The 130 acres
included in the contract is to be
cleared by July 31, which means
that a large number of men will
be employed by the contractors.

plant for temporary use in furnishing water and electricty to

Government May Bring in Redistribution
Bill at Special Fall Session and Hold
General Election if Senate Throws
Out Disputed Bill.
Big Railway Subsidies
Ottawa, May 28:-Hon. Frank
Cochrane today presented to
parliament the railway subsidy
measure, providing for subsidies
aggregating $22,000,000. Between fifteen and sixteen million dollars go to the Canadian
Northern Ontario lines and its
Edmonton-Yellowhead line. The
government will receive $7,000,-
000 in stock in the road, that
amount being the excess over
the regular Dominion subsidy.
The C. P. R. will receive $5,000,-
000 for its Kettle Valley line and
for extensions   in  the  prairie reducing the Liberal majority in
Ottawa, May 27:���In the senate today Sir George Ross, the
Liberal leader, moved an amendment on the second reading of
the naval bill, seconded by Hewitt Bostock, of British Columbia,
"That this house is not justified
in giving assent to this bill until
it has been submitted to the
country."
The belief is general that the
amendment will be adopted.
A general election in the near
future is predicted, chiefly in
Liberal circles.
Senator Ross made a lengthy
speech in favor of a purely Canadian navy. The debate is likely
to last many days.
Ottawa, May 29:���It is understood the cabinet has not yet
decided on the next move in the
naval campaign. There is talk
of a fall session of parliament if
the naval bill fails in the senate.
In that case a redistribution bill
would.'be brought down, with the
probability of an election soon
following. There may even
be an election after the present
session. The senate may vote
on the bill tomorrow.
The National Transcontinental
railway was the subject of debate yesterday, when the $19,-
000,000 vote to cover estimated
expenditure was up for consideration. Hon. George Graham criticized the department, the minister explaining the condition of
affairs and the progress of the
railway. There is now only a
sixty mile gap without rails.
The total N. T. R. expenditure to
the end of December was $127,-
000,000.
Ottawa, May 27:���Four new
Conservative senators from Ontario were sworn in yesterday,
provinces.
To Settle Strike
Nanaimo, May 28: -The Western Fuel Co. has offered a wage

E. R. Smith, Richie McCall and
J. J. Donnelly.
Coal Merger Mooted
Vancouver, May 28: -D. A.
Thomas, a Welsh coal maRnate
now at Merritt, inspecting the
Nicola Valley coal fields. An
amalgamation of various large
coal interests is reported to be
under consideration. Mr. Thomas will also inspect the Vancouver Island coal fields, but is not
going north at present.
Victoria, May 29:���Sir Richard
McBride says, "If the naval bill
fails in the senate it will be a
national calamity. Senator Ross
appears in the role of apologist
for Laurier. There can be no
doubt of the depressing effect in
London if the senate throws the
bill out."
Held for Manslaughter
Calgary, May 29:���Tommy
Burns, former heavyweight
champion, and Arthur Pelkey
were both committed for trial on
charges of manslaughter following the death of Luther McCarthy after a knockout blow by

T
Details of Canada's permanent naval policy are not likely to be
announced until the Naval Aid Bill becomes law. Premier Borden
has declared, however, that every principle, economical
and strategical, for the unity of the Empire, must depend on the
provision of a fleet for general defence, in the view that it is best
for the whole of the Empire to organize a distinct fleet, the disposition of which would be varied in accordance with the continually
changing situation. This can only be done if the Overseas Dominions co-operate, also by the provision of naval bases adequately
p oti cted by fixed and mobile defences. If this squadron is to be
vi ti at off thi Atlantic or Pacific coasts of Canada, these
coasts, in the near future, must be provided with well equipped
naval arsenals.
This is the reason, declare the naval authorities, that the dockyard at Halifax must be greatly enlarged and brought up to date
and the magnificent harbor at Vancouver be converted into a great
naval base, with docks, basins and workshops, provided by the
Canadian Government, ancl also adequate shore defences.
It is not anticipated that Premier Borden intends to abandon
the new naval cadet college or cease from enlisting and entering
new seamen recruits. For the protection of the new Dominion
bases there will be required certain small cruisers and torpedo
craft, which will be built in Canada. These will afford training for
young officers and men, who can later take up service with the
Imperial squadron, of which the Canadian gift ships will be part.
This squadron, though nominally based on Gibraltar, for administrative reasons, will cruise far afield and will probably be seen
as much off the Atlantic coast of Canada as in European waters.
As the new bases are completed considerable periods will be spent
in the Pacific, oft' British Columbia and off the coasts of Australasia. It is the intention that, so far as possible, those Dominions
which contribute to the Imperial squadron will arrange the itinerary. The Imperial battleships must be ready, not alone as an
accession of strength to the British home squadron, but must be
able to defend all shores of Empire no matter how far removed.
They will be for world defence, not tied to any one sea, but free
"To go anywhere and do anything."
If the occasion of rejoicing or nervousness arises on either the
Atlantic or the Pacific coasts of Canada, or if New Zealand sends
the call, ten modern battleships will be available to respond to the
wishes of this or that section of the Empire. In fact, the squadron will be a visible link, to the Britons and to possible enemies,
between the various Dominions, and will be the advance guard of
the British navy.

Prince Rupert Fair
(From the Journal.)
The city of Prince Rvipert and
the district generally will receive
a decided adsantaRe from the
exhibition that is to be held here
this fall, and it is te be hoped
that this will become one of the
permanent events of the
year in the city. The committee that has the work in hand
appears to be giving a vast
amount of work to the proposition, with the result lhat there
is an assurance that the fair will
be a credit to the place.
From a publicity standpoint
the exhibition cannot fail to have
a decided effect It will attract
tn the district attention to the
fuel Hat i his is a farming county and not a wilderness. New
British Columbia is only beginning to be opened up. The possibilities of the country are not
yet known. A start has been
made in the direction of development, but it will require years
before the recources of the district are fully grasped. There
has been a start made in the
opening up to the attention of
the world the vast areas of agricultural lands that lie within a
measurable distance of this city,
and the immense possibilities of
this land. The fair will demonstrate to the world that there is
a country here which can produce all that any other part of
British   Columbia    can   yield.
In no one direction from the
city is there a monopoly of the
arable lands. On the contrary,
there are wide stretches of the
very best farming areas obtainable practically every direction
from this city. Along the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
which has had the effect of
bringing this district into the
public eye and making it possible
as a place of residence, there
are fertile valleys that stretch
south of the Skeena for miles into the Lakelse and up the Kitsumkalum into the Naas and
Groundhog country, which cannot be excelled in point of farm
lands. Owing to the proximity
to the city of Prince Rupert,
with the immense possibilities
that city has, these lands must
as a natural consequence come
to be used for extensive farming,
and from these fertile fields that
are now being cleared will come
the future fruit and vegetable
supplies for the ambitious port
that is to be built up here. These
valleys, in the opinion of the
Deputy Minister of Agriculture,
W. E. Scott, constitute the largest and the richest agricultural
areas in the whole of the province of British Columbia.
Farther along the Skeena lie
smaller valleys that are none the
less rich as fields for settlement.
Still farther lies the vast open

Prince Rupert Fair
(Continued  from  Page Two)
country that is afforded in the
valley of the Bulkley, with the
lake country to the south of it,
well adapted for mixed farming
and for grazing. North and
south of the Grand Trunk Pacific
throughout the territory through
which the railway runs are elevated plains that will produce
crops and stock to supply a great
population. All of this area will
afford the means of feeding the
population of Prince Rupert and
other industrial and trading centers that may be built up. Interspersed with the agricultural
lands is the richest promise in
the line of mining and timber,
all of which will bring together
a population that will prove the
best buyers of produce that can
be found.
It would appear, in fact, as if
nature had been particularly
prodigal in the bestowing of
riches in this northern district.
The resources that are usually
found in rich quantity in other
parts of the province seem to
have all been poured out in equal
richness here. The mineral resources of the district are unexcelled; the fisheries are the best
on the coast; the timber will
rival that of any other part of
the province; and the agricultural and fruit lands are the
greatest and the richest that the
province has. The heritage of
the North, is a great one. The
future cannot fail to be a great
one.

Hazelton Wins Second Game
Hazelton football team again
defeated the eleven from New
Hazelton in the match played last
Saturday evening on the local
grounds. The visitors had several new men and showed considerable improvement in team
play, but were unable to score
against the speedy Hazeltons,
whs secured two goals in the first
half. Borland, the new Hazelton
half-back,is a desided acquisition
to the team. Hetherington came
up from Rupert to help his teammates to victory and the team as
a whole worked splendidly. The
game was the fastest ever played
here.

Tete Jaune Cache, May 26:���
Two large barges with sixty tons
of supplies for the railroad camps
at Fort George, upset yesterday
while attempting to shoot  the
!Grand Canyon  of the Fraser.
j About one hundred yards separated the two barges when the
attempt was made to negotiate
the  dangerous   waters.    While
travelling at a speed of thirty
miles an hour,  the first barge
struck the bank when about half
way through the canyon, and instantly turned turtle.    The last
barge crashed into the first and
! also upset.   The five men mann-
l ing each barge jumped for their
| lives,  and   by  clinging  to the
! wreckage, safely floated to the
'quiet waters a mile below.     The
| contents  of  both   barges were
I partly   covered with insurance.
: Out of the original fleet of five
j hundred scows which are being
built to take supplies from the
end  of  the  steel to  the   Fort
George headquarters, fifty have
so far successfully negotiated the
! Grand Canyon.
The waters of the Upper Fras-
' er are rapidly rising, and each
; day it is becoming more difficult
I to pass through the canyon.
The high waters, however, are
materially helping navigation in
, the other stretches of the river.
