Shipping Fresh Fish to England
Alex. Lvon, Representing Grimsby Firms,
Impressed With Chances
For Trade
Mr. Alex. Lyon of London, England has just completed a trip to
Prince Rupert and the Queen Charlotte Islands to report on behalf of
Hull and Grimbsy fisherman on
the posibilities of the fisheries industry in the North Pacific. He
returned here to day and is a
guest at the Hotel Vancouver.
Mr. Lyon stated that his most sanguine expectations had been surpassed. He felt convinced the
opportunities for tho investment
of capital were very numerous.
This Was especially true in regard to the fisheries. With careful business management he saw
no reaBon why substantial profits
could not be earned and realized
that apart from the American and
Canadian demand, a steady market
could bo secured for frofcen fresh
salmon, halibut, herring and cod,
as well as the same articles in a
cured or pickled state. Mr, Lyon
formed the opinion that Prince
Rupert will be the centre of the
industry. He Was favorably impressed with the new townsite
where he found a small sized building boom in progress,
Mr. Lyon who was formerly a
lieutenant iii the British NaVy, will
leave shortly for home. It is likely
that his mission will result in. the
investment of a large amount of
English capital in the Northern
fisheries.
"Mother's compliments," Said a
small boy to the family butcher,
"and she sent me tb show you the
big bone brought with the piece of
beef this1 morning.
"Tell your mother next time I
kill a btillick without bones in it
I'll make her a present of a joint,"
said the man of meat, with a grin.
"Mother's compliments," continued the boy, "and she Bays next
time you find a bit of sirloin with
a shoulder of mutton bone in it
she'd like to have the Whole carcass
as a curiosity."
FEAK-W1SE
A very interesting event took
place on Monday evening at 7.30
when Mary Feak and Samuel Wise
were united in holy wedlock. Rev.
B. Freeman, pastor of the Methodist church, assisted by the Rev. C.
Perry, of Port Simpson, officiated.
The bride, a young Indian maiden
of twenty summers, was escorted
from her home to the church
by the town band, where she was
met by Samuel, a blushing young
bridegroom of 55 summers, who
led her to the alter and was made
man and wife. After the ceremony
Stimuel took his wife to their new
home, where they were welcomed
by about two hundred Indians who
had been invited to take part in
the event by helping to 'mastigate
the provinder' prepared for them
by the happy couple and some
friends. A lengthy program was
provided, after which there was a
dance which lasted away into the
wee small hours of the morning.
The Loyalist with all sincerity
wishes them a very peaceful and
happy journey along the stream of
life.
Cows for Rupert
New Westminster���Three high-
grade dary cows, from A. C. Wells
stock at Chilliwack, were brought
down from that place on the Beaver
for reshipment to Prince Rupert,
where they will furnish the wherewithal to start a dairy. Up to date
the inhabitants of the future metropolis have been compelled to
satisfy themselves with canned
cream. The animals will be sent
north on the Princess Beatrice.
Preach Millenium is Close
at Hand
Secretary D. S. Dowsland, of the
Megiddo Home Missionary Society
is in Seattle. The Megiddo people
have been widely known for some
years, their mission steamer Megiddo having attracted attention. Rev.
L T. Nichols is the leader, and is
a man who for over forty years has
been engaged in gospel work.
The band is nonsectarian and
one of its chief aims is to rouse
more interest in the Bible. They
believe the earth is slumbering on
the eve of greater events than have
ever happened in its history ; that
only a feW years more and the
" time of trouble BUch as never has
been" predicted by the prophet
Daniel, Will break over the earth ;
that amid the universal chaos and
anarchy Christ Will appear on the
scene and Bpeak peace to the earth,
causing men everywhere to beat
their swords into ploughshares and
learn to war no more, and that
from Jerusalem, in Palestine, tlie
world will be governed in righteousness.
These alid hiany other things tlie
Megiddo people have embodied, in
pamphlet form, and the pamphlets
have been scattered through the
country in Vast numbers.
Mr. Dott-sltihd Will seek to estn.b*
isli amission in Seattle.
Mr. S, Cameron returned on the
Rupert City after a conference with
the Premier bn the progress of the
work here. Mr. Catneron says the
work on the walks will probably be
finished in a montli and the work
on tile big concrete dock will be
pushed forward steadily. The older for the steel is under wav but it
will be some time before the concrete work starts.
Gamiers Announce Price of Salmon
The prices to be paid for sockeye
salmon on the Fraser river during
the fishing season were today fixed
at twelve and a half cents during
the month of July and ten cents
during August. These prices were
decided on at a meeting of the
British Columbia Canners' association, and will be immediately
communicated to the fishermen.
The rates are the same as those .in
effect in 1905, the laat year of the
big run. The season for the higher
price during the present month is
that fishing is never well started till
the middle of July, and the best
runs usually occur in August.
With fish plentiful in August the
ten-cent rate is a very profitable
one to fishermen.
The canners also decided that in
the rating of red spring salmon
taken in the nets each one over 15
pounds in weight should be counted
as the equal to two sockeyes.
No sockeyes have yet appeared
on the Fraser river, though the
fishing season opened there yesterday. It is not expected that there
will be any great run of fish until
between July 10 and 20. At the
present time there are scores of
fishermen on the river, but they
will not operate until the fish become fairly numerous. Every day
there are a number of fishermen
prospecting on the river, and when
the first run takes place every man
will be out.
There are very few sockeyes being
taken in the traps on the strait on
the Vancouver Island shore. Mr.
YV. H. Barker, president and general manager of the British Columbia
Packers' association, returned yes*
terday from Victoria, after having
visited the company's traps, and
he reported that not more than 200
or 300 sockeyes are taken when all
the traps are raised. The sockeyes
which have been secured in the
traps so far are all line fish.
The traps are taking large numbers of springs. As a general rule
during the years of big runs the
catch of springs is not so great as
during the lean years, and some
canners arc speculating as to whether the presence of such unprecedented numbers of springs is a sign
that the sockeye run will not be as
heavy as expected.

New hotel
A new hotel called the Caledonia
was opened in town last week.
The new building is modern in
all respects, it stands next to tho
Queen's Hotel which is also owned
by Mrs. Kirby, and it is the intention of the proprietress to use the
Queen's building as an annex,
On the grolind floor there is a forty
foot bar, Immediately adjoining
is ii grill room which will be open
both day nnd night to cater to the
public in every possible way. Lavatories arc also installed on the
ground floor. There is also a first
class burlier shop adjoining same.
Upstairs there are, including the
annex, altogether one hundred
rooms Mrs. Kirby has spared no
expense to make the hotel one of
best in in the Northern part of
British Columbia, so as to cope
with the ever increasing trade of
Port Essington.

The A.Y.P. Exposition
The Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition at Seattle is proving a great
success. Since the opening day the
attendance has hisen far above all
expectations, or of estimates mntlti
by Exposition experts. There is
no best time to visit the exposition.
Every day witnesses some new fixtures which are both education;'. 1

The Lieut.-Governorship, the leadership of the Opposition in the
British Columbia legislature, a scut

jt is said, says the Albernja Pioneer News, have been offered to Billy
Sloan the man whose "deep sense
of responsibility to the province"
caused him to make way for Bill
Templeman in Comox-Atlin, and
yet he remains a private citizen.
Perhaps Billy is simply waiting for
a change of Provincial Government
in the hope of being appointed stipendiary magistrate at Quatsino.
The Empire, the pioneer newspaper of Prince Rupert, and pul -
lished by John Houston, has
changed hands The Empire has
been published for over two years
and during that time Mr. Houston
made a number of friends and some
enemies on account of the bold
stand he took on many public
questions, but he was undoubtedly
sincere in his endeavor to have
Prince Rupert conducted as a model town. His efforts did not meet
with the success he desired and he
has decided to move to pastures
green. Mr. Houston has gretil
fighting qualities and his presence
will be felt wherever he may cast
his lot. The Loyalist wishes hint
every success.

success.

the Simpson boys still held the upper hand, though with a reduced
score, li to 3; The tug-of-war was
the next on the programme, best

Russian Torpedo-boat Fires On British Vessel.
A despatch from St. Petersburg
says: Firing upon the British
steamship Northburg, a torpedo
boat accompanying the Czar's
yacht Standart to Pitkipas Bay, to
meet the 'icrnnin Emperor, injured
a British sailor, according to advices received here. The shot was
riii'd because the captain commanding the Northburg refused to heed
the torpedo boat's warning to stay
away from the bay where the Russian and German rulers were to
meet.
News regarding the firing on the
British vessel is censored and but
little can be learned of the incident,
but rumors which are being circulated here have caused the greatest
excitement.
According the meagure advices
the Northburg was in Waters from
Which all foreign vessels had beiyi
barred, pending tho meeting of the
lnonarclis, when she was encountered by the torpedo boat, which
was one of a flotilla accompanying
the Standart. The commander of
the torpedo boat hailed tlie Northburg and demanded that she leave
\he vicinity at once. No attention
Was paid to the command and the
War vessel fired on the British ship,
hitting a smoke stack and injuring
One sailor.

TWENTY MILES TOO LONG
FOR ALFRED SHRUBB
His Ankle Gives Out
It was before a wildly enthusiastic crowd of 12,000 people that Tom
Longboat defeated Alfred Shrubb
in the twenty-mile race at Hanlon's
Point, Toronto.
The Englishman quit in the
fifteenth mile after limping badly
for three laps; he claimed that his
old sprained ankle bothered him
Longboat jogged the remaining
distance and finished in 2:02-10.
The track was a quarter mile one.
Slfruub set a hot pace at the start
and gained half a lap in the third
mile, at live miles he led by 100
yards, and by a lap at the seventh
mile. At the ninth mile the positions were unchanged. Shrubb
sprinted but could not shake off
the Indian. Twelve miles saw
Shrubb still a lap to the good, but
both men were fresh.
On the thirteenth mile Shrubb
again tried sprinting, but every
time he sprinted Longboat did the
same. Shrubb began to show
signs of distress, but still held the
lead, doing the fourteenth mile in
1:18:29.
After running the fourteenth
mile, Shrubb sprinted, trying to
coax Longboat on; then Longboat
sprinted and took the lead, gaining
half a lap. Shrubb was limping
badly, while Longboat was running
easy. Shrubb's time for the fifteen
miles was 1:25 and Longboat's was
1:26:8.
Shrubb was [still limping badly
and after going three laps over the
fifteen mile quit for good, saying
he was unable to go any further
owing to an old sprain,

a sharp struggle in the first 100
yards, and although he fought
gamely, the Nelson man was unable to get on even terms again.
Both men finished in fine shape
and weil within themselves.
There was a large attendance
and the weather conditions were
perfect.
Both men will meet again next
