Essad Proclaims Himself King of Albania���Powers Will Not
Coerce King Nicholas-^Montenegro To Get Scutari Or
Some Equivalent���Austria is Anxious
London, May 1:���King Nicholas
of Montenegro refuses to evacuate Scutari at the behest of the
powers and the ambassadorial
conference will not attempt to
coerce him, believing that he can
be induced to recede from his attitude by monetary or territorial
considerations. Essad Pasha, the
defender of Scutari, upon surrendering to the Montenegrin
forces, was allowed to march his
troops out of the city with all the
honors of war. He proceeded to
A essio, where he was received
with enthusiasm. He proclaimed
himself king of Albania and is
now proceeding to Tirana to
proclaim himself and take possession. Austria fears the rise of a
new Balkan nation, and is.active
in warlike preparations.
Essad has had a picturesque
and adventurous career. He is
an Albanian chieftain of the type
which earned for the Albanians
a reputation for barbaric simplicity approaching savagery.
He was always opposed to the
Young Turks' repressive measures in Albania. In Vienna
and Paris his surrender of Scutari is regarded as having been
an arranged matter with King
Nicholas, who approved his plan
to proclaim himself independent
prince of Albania.
The whole scheme of the
alleged storming of Scutari and
the marching out of Essad Pasha's army with their arms is now
regarded as a coup de theatre to
deceive Europe. Essad is said to
have D.javid Pasha's army of
9000 men and, if he has the support of Servia and Montenegro,
it will be a severe blow for
Austria.
A Belgrade despatch to the
Daily Mail asserts that Essad
Pasha's Albanian standing assures his success and that he has
an alliance with King Nicholas.
REPORT SAYS KING
WILLJSIT CANADA
New York, April 28:-The
Brooklyn Eagle's London correspondent, under date of April 12,
writes as follows,
"I am able to announce definitely that King George will visit:
Canada in 1914.
"Only some such unexpected
event as a European war involving Great Britain or a family*
bereavement will prevent this \
trip taking place.
"The king and his advisers are |
taking somewhat unnecessary
pains in keeping thc proposed
visit secret. They are so afraid
that the Canadians will be disap-
pointed that they dread the
King's intention being announced
at this distant date. A meeting
between King George and President Wilson at Niagara Palls is
likely to he arranged in the near
future. King George announced
his willingness to open the Toronto exhibition in August, 1914.
"It will be the first time that
any king of England has ever
visited Canada. It is hoped that
the Queen will accompany the
King, but nothing is yet definitely settled as regards this.
The Prince of Wales is likely to
be with his father on this interesting trip.
"The trip to Canada is only |
the forerunner of others. It is
the King's intention to be the
first King to visit not only Canada but also Australia and South
Africa."
CALIFORNIA PASSES
ANTI-JAPANESE LAW
Washington, May 1:���Secretary Bryan, who went to Sacramento to persuade the California
legislators to modify the bill preventing the ownership of land
by Japanese, failed in his mission, the new law being passed
without important amendment.
Although Japan is outwardly
less militant, there is a strong
undercurrent of feeling against
the California policy, and a rupture of friendly relations is not
impossible. The administration
is said to be preparing for the
transfer of the Atlantic fleet to
Pacific waters. It is stated that
if necessary the Panama canal
can be opened in June.

promises well.
Ed. Smith, a mining man who
is operating in the Koyukuk district of Alaska, spent a few days

Pacific Will Each Devote Immense Sums to Construction and Equipment in British Columbia This Year
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, April 28:���Canada's great railways will spend
an immense amount of money on
construction and improvements
in British Columbia and the west
during the present year. In addition t|o the $50,000,000 for
western Canada which is included in C. P. R. appropriations,
there will be many millions for
construction on the G. T. P., as
well as an expenditure of $35,-
000,000   for   equipment.      The
that the company contemplated
an expenditure of $50,000,000
this year in Canada, in laying
double tracks, constructing
branch lines and putting a tunnel through the Rocky Mountains
which would piovidean alternate
route with a much easier grade
than now exists and will enable
the railway through the tunnel
to be worked by electricity if
required.

not involve another appeal to the

arrangements have been made a
long way ahead.

The Omineca Miner has the largest bona fide circulation of any newspaper in the
Northern Interior of British Columbia.
Advices from Ottawa indicate that the members of the opposition are somewhat disappointed that the passing of the closure rule
has not had the the dire results they predicted. During the week
parliament attacked the large accumulation of legislation which
has been held up by the Liberals' obstructive tactics, and at this
writing good progress is being made with a number of bills. Needless to say, the government is making no attempt to "gag free
speech," despite the predictions of the opposition. The business
of the country is Lieing transacted in the time-honored manner,
every member being given full opportunity to discuss all public
matters, but the opposition members appear to be in a more reasonable mood since the passing of the closure resolution, and it is
unlikely they will attempt to renew their campaign nl' obstruction,
since the government has power to force a vote if a blockade is
attempted. 	
There is hope that the Panama rates dispute between Great
Britain and the United States, a question in which Canada is deeply
concerned, will be amicably arranged without any injustice to the
shipping interests of this country or any other. On Monday President Wilson declared his opinion that the question of the right to
exempt American ships from the payment of tolls was a debatable
one. He gave no direct intimation as to his views, but some ofthe
senators who talked with him came away with the idea that he
opposed the exemption and favored the Root amendment to repeal
it. The justice of Great Britain's contention is admitted by Hon.
Joseph H. Choate, former American Ambassador to England, and
perhaps the best acquainted man in the United States with the
Hay-Pauncefote treaty. Mr. Choate has come out with an appeal
to President Wilson and congress to play the game fairly, admit
that the Panama canal bill passed under the Taft administration
was a violation of the treaty, and eliminate the clauses objected to
by England, or at any rate submit them to arbitration.
Mr. Choate had a great deal to do with the negotiation of this
treaty in the summer of 1901. He was in daily communication
with Lord Pauncefote, who on his side, represented Lord Lans-
downe, the British foreign secretary, and with Mr. Hay, the United States secretary of state, under whom he was then acting. The
particular feature which Mr. Choate emphasizes in his argument,
is not the commercial advantage to the United States, which the
offensive clause in the bill unjustly requires, but that it involves a
question of national honor and good faith toward England.
The whole industrial advantage to the world of the Panama
canal depends, so Mr. Choate says, upon fair play, upon an equality
of business privileges for all nations in the matter of canal tolls.
The Hay-Pauncefote treaty, Mr. Choate points out, not only carefully avoided any exemption clauses that would operate against the
vessels of any country in the world, but on the contrary, expressly
stipulated for absolute equality. The arbitration treaty of 1908,
too, provided that in case of any dispute between the two nations
which did not involve their independence or vital interests or honor
should be submitted for arbitration to the permanent court at The
Hague. That is, should the dispute so entangle the feelings of two
nations as to imperil peace between them to the verge of war, that
treaty provided that it should settled by arbitration. Mr. Choate
particularly emphasizes this far-seeing diplomacy stamped upon the
treaty of 1908 by the genius of Lord Pauncefote and Mr. Hay.
Mr. Choate further insists that the point here in dispute was
so free from doubt thf^ n'1 matter to what court it sh >uld be submitted, whether to a local com' in New York, to the supreme
court of the United States, or to The Hague Tribunal, the result
would be the same.

Our readers are reminded that
the forestry law prescribes a
" close season " extending from
May 1 to October 1, during which
no slash, brush, etc., may be
burned without a permit from
the provincial forest board. This
prohibition is contained in sections 107 and 108 of the act,
which read as follows:
" During the close season it
shall be unlawful for any person
to set out, or cause to be set out,
started or kindled, any fire in or
near any forests or woodlands
except for the purpose of clearing land, cooking, obtaining necessary warmth, or for some necessary industrial purpose permitted by the minister, and unless
the obligations and precautions
imposed in the following section
shall be observed,
" During the close season no
person, firm or corporation shall
Bet out, or cause to  be set out,
fires in or near slashings of forest debris, standing or fallen timber or bush  land,  for the pur-
pose of burning slashings, brush,
grass, or other inflammable mat-,
eriala or for any industrial purpose without first  obtaining  a!
permit  therefor;  provided   that:
no person shall be convicted who
shall have set in good faith and
with   reasonable | care,   a  back
Are for the purpose of   stopping
the   progress   of   a   fire   then
actually burning. "
It is greatly to their own interest and their own convenience
that settlers and all others who!
have slash on  their holdings to |
be got rid of should attend to its j
destruction as soon as possible,;
while all  vegetation is  as  yet,
green and  the ground  has not
dried under the summer sun, in '
order that the element of danger
through the fires spreading may
be reduced to a minimum, an advantage to the province generally and to the settler, but to the
settler most of all.

some holes put down to bedrock,
with poor returns; just enough to
show there is gold in the country.
I have not had time to look a-
round, and I am fixing up snow-
shoes so I can take some trips
over the mountains, so 1 can get
a lay of the country. I believe
the country will be good, but
good pay has got to be found.
"Prospecting is unsatisfactory
this time of the year. A lot of
of the boys are going to leave in
a couple of days, but I am going
to stay and give the country a
good test. I want the boys to
get value received for their money; the country looks good, and I
think it is good, but everybody
should stay away until further
developments. As soon as I get
anything that I know is good I
will send you a wire. The trip
Vancou-!nas Deen expensive, as every-
iiirclias-' thing went up 50 to 100 per cent.
1 managed to get i'our dogs at
Skagway and one at Carcross;
they cost me about $40 each. I
had three sleighs in my party,
with three dogs on each sleigh.
We went from Carcross to Atlin
in three days, and in seven days
from Atlin here (Silver Creek).
"The trail [is not bad only on
some of the portages, but it is
very crooked, you meet yourself
half a dozen times coming back.
The best way to come in here in
the winter is to go to Tagish,
then east to Lake Teslin, then up
to Teslin. The country from
Tagish to Teslin is level; there is
plenty of game in the country
and we will not go hungry, even
if we run out of the Chee Chaco
grub.
"The country round here is
staked from Dan to Beersheby,
all of Atlin and all of the Indians
came here and stuck their stakes
in the snow and then went and
recorded. I could secure plenty
of claims but I wont buy pigs in
a sack. Do not take any notice
of reports from this country until
you hear from me. We are within thirty miles of a telegraph
station and as soon as I find anything good I will wire you.
"Everybody is in good health
with a good appetite for beans.
The snow is three feet deep here;
it is thawing a little every day.
1 hope the next time you hear
from me I will have better news,
but by all means tell everybody
to stay away until you hear from
me. Give my regards to all the
boys. "
