VANCOUVER
Forecast of Redistribution as
That City Would Like it to
Operate
Vancouver, Mar. 13:���Of the
six additional federal members
of parliament to be allotted to
British Columbia, it is predicted
that Vancouver will be given one
more, North Vancouver one,
South Vancouver one, Lulu Island and the lower Fraser one,
Yale-Cariboo an additional one,
and southern Vancouver Island
one. Victoria, it is thought, will
remain the same as at present.
Comox may be separated from
Atlin and added to Nanaimo, the
the rest of Northern British Columbia being combined with
Atlin. 	
Great Inventor Dead
New York, Mar. 13:���George
Westinghouse, inventor of the
air brake, is dead. He left fifty
millions.
Ritchie Beats Wolgast
Vancouver, Mar. 13: ��� Richie
was given the decision over Wolgast in the tenth round of their
contest tonight.
Dominion May Help
Ottawa, Mar. 13:���The Dominion government is likely to aid
the C.N.R. by a bond guarantee.
Smith's New Store
C. V. Smith's new store, which
is being built on the site of the
burned structure, will be completed within a few weeks. In
the meantime the new stock is
on its way, and Mr. Smith expects to resume business within
a month. The Royal and London
& Lancashire Insurance companies, represented by E. H. Hicks
Beach, promptly paid the amounts
due under the policies.
Form New Partnership
A partnership has been formed
by E. H. Hicks Beach and Fred.
Field, who will continue the real
estate, insurance and brokerage
business of the former. The
firm, which is to be known as
Hicks Beach & Field, will have
an office at Courtney, on Vancouver Island, where they are
having a large building constructed. The local business will probably be taken over by Charles
Hicks Beach.
Respected Citizen
Goes to His Rest
St. Peter's Church
Members of the Woman's Auxiliary will please note that the
last business meeting of the session will take place next Thursday afternoon at 3:15 at the Mission house.
Next Friday at 7:30, in the
Church, the first of a course of
Bible Talks, illustrated by lantern slides, on "The Life of our
Lord" will be given. Services
will be held each Friday during
Lent, concluding with the story
of the Passion on Good Friday.
Admission free. No collection.
All invited.
H. J. Macdonald, the Babine
mining man, was in town for a
few days during the week. A
good deal of work is to be done
on mining claims around Babine
lake this season.
After an illness lasting for
several months, Henry Coppock
died on Ihursday morning last
at his residence in Hazelton,
of ailments incident to old age.
Mr. Coppock, who came to Hazelton four years ago, was held
in the highest esteem by all who
knew him. A pioneer of new
countries, he had great faith in
the future of the district, manifested by extensive purchases of
land in this vicinity. For some
time he successfully conducted
a livery business here, but during
the last year of his life was in
such poor health that he was
compelled to relinquish active
business. He had nearly reached
his 75th birthday.
Two sons, R. C. Coppock, of
Tongue creek, Alta., and T. J.
Coppock, of Castor, Alta., were
in attendance during the last
hours of the deceased.
A funeral service will be conducted at the residence at 3:30
this afternoon. It was at first
intended that the interment
should be in the Hazelton ceme-
tary, but in deference to the
wishes of other members of the
family, the sons have decided to
take the remains to their old
home in Kansas City for burial,
leaving on tomorrow morning's
train.

Vancouver, Mar. 12: ��� That
Skeena Crossing will be the
Butte of the north is the declaration of B. R. Jones, who has been
here on mining business. Mr.
Jones, who went north last night,
says a smelter at Skeena Crossing is a probability. There is
ample coking coal in the Kitseguecla valley, near at hand. He
expects the Rocher de Boule to
ship 300 tons of ore daily by May.
The Great Ohio also has a fine
showing. A five-hundred-foot
tunnel will soon be started.

American coal will prove much
more marketable at an economical price than in the Mediterranean trade,  which   American
operators have made several attempts to capture, and that if
that advantage is strenghened
by restrictive American legislation, it may lead to the establishment, in West Indian waters, of
monopoly in American coal even
more exclusive than that now
virtually held by British coal in
the Mediterranean.
Mr. Thomas' plan, as indicated,
is to extend his interests to those
Canadian and American coal
fields producing coal adaptable
for export. British, as well as
continental capitalists, are associated with him
The above despatches point to a
'. highly important scheme for the
| development of Northern British
I Columbia.   Mr. Thomas, who is
i now on his way to Vancouver, is
j the largest individual coal oper-
j ator in the world.   Last summer
he and other eminent Welshmen
visited British Columbia and investigated the coal fields of the
province.    The outcome was the
raising of capital and the appli-
j cation  for a charter for railroad
to tap the great Groundhog coal
fieldsontheNaasand Skeena. The
Groundhog coal is known to be of
excellent quality, much resembling the steam  coal  which has
made Wales famous.
Mr. Thomas has been studying
He has obtain- tne effect which the ��Pening of

as to the competitive importance I
of Pocahontas, West Virginia

Americans in the way of coaling
depots on Panama Canal routes.
The residence which is to accommodate the ferryman in
charge of the Souih Hazelton

J. M. MacCormick, manager
of R. Cunningham & Son's Hazelton store, is spending the week
at Port Essington and Prince
Rupert.

demand for coal at Panama for
vessels passing through the great
waterway. Presumably, his intention is to make a bid for this
trade and to fill his orders with
coal from the Groundhog district.

the charter has practically been
granted, will run from the mouth
of the Naas river, about fifty
miles north of Prince Rupert, up

Silver Cup May
Work This Season
A meeting of the shareholders
of the Silver Cup mines and of
the Sunset and Sunrise group of
properties adjoining on Glen
mountain, Hazelton district, was
held in Patmore & Fulton's offices
yesterday, says the Prince Rupert News. The principal business of the meeting was the
discussion of the proposed lease
of the company's property to
Messrs Clothiers Brothers, well-
known mining men from the
boundary country. The meeting
decided to accept the lease on
conditions slightly different from
those proposed.
Messrs Clothier Brothers, if
they accept the proposition, will
form a development company and
open the property.
Under the proposed agreement
the company wil) get 20 per cent
of the net profits from the ore

ULSTER HAY
REMAjN OUT
Counties May Vote on Exclusion From Home Rule
For Term of Six Years
London, Mar. 9:���The anxiously-looked for announcement of
the Home Rule concessions to
Ulster was made today by Premier Asquith. After reviewing
the attempts to reconcile the contending elements, Mr. Asquith
stated that the government intended that the whole of Ireland
should be included in the Home
Rule bill. All the statutory
counties of Ulster would be asked
to poll as to whether they would
come into the act or not, the
question to be put them being
whether they were in favor of
exclusion from the Government
of Ireland Bill of 1914. The ex-
elusion would be for six years
from the date of the first meeting of the Irish parliament. The
government's proposal meant
that the Ulster counties would
have the option of having exclusion and if they voted for it they
could not be brought back except
with the consent of the majority
of the whole United Kingdom.
The necessary administrative
changes would have to be made
in the bill, but he hoped the Ulster counties themselves would
not wish for any alterations in
the judiciary. As to the rest of
Ireland, and the various changes
in detail, the government's proposals would appear later.
Exclusion in any form could
never be put forward as a solution, the premier said, butonly as
an expedient which might point
the way to a final settlement.
Mr. Asquith then proceeded to
give the details of the proposed
poll. Each county would be polled
at the request of one-tenth of
the electorate, the voters being
those entitled to vote at the Parliamentary elections. The question voted on would be: "Are you
in favor of the exclusion of the
county from the Government of
Ireland Act for a period of
years?" A poll would be taken
by ballot in the same manner as
at an election.
Andrew Bonar Law, who followed, said that if the proposals
represented the last word of the
government, then the position
was a grave one. Unionists were
opposed to Home Rule with or
without exclusion.
Premier Goes To Ottawa
Victoria, Mar. 13:���On Tuesday next Sir Richard McBride
will leave for Ottawa, to consult
the federal government regarding various matters of Provincial
interest. It is understood the
question of the high commission-
ership is likely to come up in the
'course of his visit to the capital.

Fisheries of Province
Victoria, Mar. S: The report
of the Hon. VV. J. Bowser, commissioner of fisheries, has been
issued. Presenting an outline of
the work of the department during 1913, the main body of the
report gives the value of the
fisheries products of British Columbia, and compares these with
those of other provinces, showing that British Columbia produced $14,455,488 out of a total
for Canada of $33,389,464, more
than equalling the products for
the same period of the three
maritime provinces.
The salmon pack was the chief
component factor in this, although owing to the increased
demand for cheaper varieties"of

Mining Prospects
Last  year  the output of  the
mines of  British Columbia was|we'l founded they were,
valued at $30,000,000.     It would
be unwise to attempt to estimate.
with this as a measure, the  possible  mineral   production  of   all
British Columbia; but only a very
general idea of the  country   and
its    resources   is   necessary  to
create a feeling of confidence in
its potentialities in  this  regard,
says a coast exchange.
Let us consider very briefly one
part of the province,   of  which
not very much is known officially,
namely  the area in   which the
Stikine, the Liard, the Peace and
some branches of the Fraser take
their rise,   or that part of the
province lying between the 55th
and 59th parallels and  between
the 120th and  129th  meridians.
H re we have repeated in a general way the structural  features
of the great mining area of which
Butte may be said to be the center.   It is a region from which
rivers flow  in  all  directions to
the sea.    On all sides of it placer
gold is found in  greater or less
quantities.    It is only necessary
to mention the Cassiar gold fields
in the north and those of Omineca in the south to show  that in
some places at least, these placer
mines  have   proved    profitable.
There are known deposits of copper and  galena,   and   what else
may be found there is necessarily
a matter  largely of conjecture,
although very interesting reports
have been brought out by  prospectors.   The difficulty  and  ex
penseof transportation have combined to render it impossible for
anything more than the most
superficial examination to be
made, and, as a matter of fact,
the prospectors have not been
numerous, and most of the few
prospectors who have gone into
the country have been looking-
for alluvial gold-bearing gravels.
There is the best of reason for
thinking that as soon as trans
portation can be supplied, the
history of Kootenay will be repeated, and, perhaps, on an enlarged scale, in this more north
erly area.
In the last twenty years the
people of liritish Columbia  have
the
of settlement going on  in
province from day to day.
"In  regard to agriculture  in
the Skeena district,  I may  say
| that we are still in an experimen-
i
tii
i tal stage, and I am pleased to
1 know that the government is
taking interest in the question,
and that as a result of the findings of the Royal Commission,
we may look for a measure of
assistance that will place the industry far in advance of its present condition.
"I am also glad to be able to
report that mining conditions in
the North are progressing in a
satisfactory manner. The Granby Company has built a smelter
at Granby Bay and is proceeding with development work, and
other organizations are moving
along in line. At Portland Canal
we have a tunnel now of 2500
feet, with splendid ore showings,
and in the interior parts of the
province, at Hazelton, Nine Mile

Panama Canal Tolls
Washington, Mar. 10:���With
the Sims bill providing for the
repeal of the tolls exemption
clause of the Panama Canal Act
favorably reported to the house,
and with a poll of the membership of the house and senate
showing a safe majority for repeal, administration leaders were
more confident than 'ever today
that congress would respond
favorably to President Wilson's
appeal. This poll, taken by members of the house and senate who
will aid in the fight for repeal,
showed, they say, a large majority in both houses ready to vote
for a flat repeal measure at once.
The next move of those who
are to lead the fight in the house
for the repeal provision, will be
to urge the rules committee to
bring in a special rule to expedite its passage. It was confidently asserted that a rule giving
the Sims measure the right-of-
way in the house would be
brought in by the middle of the
week.
��� While the house is debating
the issue, in the senate the committee on interoceanic canals will
consider what action to take,
whether to recommend a flat repeal, or to urge the compromise
bill offered by Senator Chilton,
authorizing the President to regulate the tolls and assess charges
at his discretion, wherever exemption is provided in the Canal Act.
President Wilson was highly
gratified with the way Congress
had responded to his address of
Thursday.

Suffragette Riot
Glasgow, Mar. 10:���Mrs. Pankhurst was arrested at a suffragette meeting, after a fierce fight
with the police in which a score
of women were hurt. The suffragettes, in anticipation of the
trouble with the police, had
stretched a network of wire
across the platform concealed by
floral decorations, and it proved
very efficacious with the aid of
the masculine supporters, who
used flower pots, chairs, or anything they could lay their hands
as missiles for holding back the
police for a few minutes.
Finally the police stormed the
platform. A number of women
produced clubs from under their
cloaks and used them thoroughly
against the attacking party. Sev- ..
eral blank cartridge pistols were ��
tired, as well as several bombs. |
The police seized Mrs. Pankhurst II
and dragged her off the platform IS
and through the hall to the street, j |
A desperate effort was made to 11
