Prince Rupert, B.C.. Monday.  July 25. 1910.

HOUSANDS OF HORSE POWER
icstall Falls Has Nearly Two
Hundred Foot Head
rtayor, Aldermen and Engineers on
Two Days Trip Through Picturesque Country���Visited Two Water
Powers About Fifty Miles Distant.
Ecstall Falls situated on Falls River
short distance back from where it
impties into the large and picturesque
Ecstall river, is one of the prettiest spots
i the north. It was visited on Saturday
Afternoon by representatives of the
fcitizens of Prince Rupert who were out
looking for a water power sufficient to
���upply the town with electric energy for
lighting and manufacturing purposes.
The party was composed of Mayor
fetork, City Engineer W. M. Davis,
Assistant Engineer A. W. Agnew, Aid.
(P. H. Mobley, Aid. G. R. Naden, Aid.
Barrow and C. H. Sawle of the Prince
Rupert Optimist. The start was made
i few minutes after eight o'clock Saturday morning in Aid. Pattullo's yacht.
Ilpon reaching Port Essington a short
pop was made to allow the engineer
lo get a couple of dry batteries for the
Engine, and the passengers employed
their time in going through one of the
Jalmon canneries and were greatly
Interested in the operations. An immense run of sock-eyes is reported and
fin Saturday there were three big scow
waiting at the wharf while a
feumber of fishing boats with full cargoes
were passed later on.
Leaving Port Essington about noon
puncheon was  served   on  board  ship.
Each man had his basket and also a
pood sized appetite. It was a thoroughly
enjoyable meal  as were several other
neals served on board later on.    The
Iparty proceeded up the Skeena to the
���mouth of the  Ecsrall,   a river which
Iproved a surprise to everyone. It is very
jwide with a good depth of water and
���flowing  between   ranges  of  mountain
I that are picturesque  in the extreme.
[The stream has a very heavy tide but
I even when the tide is at low ebb there is
a good channel for the average tug or
launch, and only once was the boat
stuck in the sand and then it was for
only a few minutes.
Several miles up the Ecstall another
stream flows into it, known as Falls
River. It is about a quarter of a mile
up this stream that the first glimpse of
the Ecstall falls is secured. It was to
see those that the Prince Rupert
aldermen went out, and immediately
they were emphatic in their expressions
of the beauty of the falls and the surroundings.
Ecstall falls are the waters of large
mountain-streams which come tumbling
down the rocks and boulders from a
distance of 195 feet above.
Elated with the view below nothing
would do but to climb to the top to see
the river above and to look down on the
falls. A. W. Agnew, who is interested
in this water power, and represents Mr.
Matthews, acted as guide. He is an old
warhorse in the bush and on the hills
and set a pace that would kill an ordinary man. The climb up was an interesting and exciting one for the tender
foots as all kinds of difficulties had to be
overcome, including frequent patches
of devils club. No mishaps occurred and
the whole party reched the top in safety.
Here the scenery is even more beautiful
and entrancing and was worth the trip
if nothing else was seen.
Big Horee Power
Last winter A. W. Agnew and others
took measures of the falls, river and
lakes, the latter being a couple of miles
farther up stream. At that time Mr.
Agnew said that there was only about
half the water there was on Saturday
and the falls were not at full flood by any
means. From the measurements taken
they calculated that 12,000 horse power
could be developed. If their calculations were correct and that amount of
power could be brought into the city
the aldermen would not hesitate long
in getting a report.
To develop the power would be an

when Commodore George, president
of thc Prince Rupert Glee Club, modestly
"JMested a Sunday outing in honor of
Mis. Clot-son, he had no idea that instead
of trouble in getting his crowd together
he would be pestered for invitations.
Such was the fact, however, and in place
��i the little dinky boat in view the Hazleton had to be chartered.
The Hazelton pulled out about noon
w'th the following excursionists:

The good ship laid her course for the
head of the bay and having explored
that returned for a trip up Seal Cove
as far as the rapids. Then she headed for
Metlakatla, and the excursionists had
a fine view of the city with the whole
of its available docking occupied by
steamers. The weather was delightful
at Metlakatla, and the trippers, had a
lovely time picking flowers and berries.
Quite a number took tea at the native
Sherry's, Old George being thrown into
conniption fit of exultion by such a
sudden access of wealth. A new course
was then laid for Zinardi Rapids, the
excursionists being overjoyed to notice
how rapidlythe structure was approaching
completion as this means (excursions by
rail before the summer iB over.
Prince Rupert Subsidy
Dry Docks are in season. A well-known
British firm will probably build one in
Montreal, Quebec wants a dock on the
Levis side. Sault Ste. Marie has secured a
subsidy for its dock. North Vancouver
has been subsidized with the same
object in view. The Grand Trunk
Pacific will have one one at Prince Rupert
St. John will also secure a dock, and
Collingwood is already a proud possessor.
The bait is Canadian prosperity and its
future. The tasty sauce is the Government   subsidy.���Monetary  Times.
DR. CRIPPEN

MOVEMENTS ON STEAMER SAR-
D1NA CLOSELY WATCHED
Tracked by French Detectives From
Spanish Boundary to Harve.���
Mile. Levene Dressed in Mail Attire
���Will  Be  Arrested  at  Montreal.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 25.���No new move appears to have been made in the Crippen
case. The police are firm in their opinion
that the couple on board the Sardinia
are those wanted, and they will be arrested at Montreal.
The French police tracked the couple
from San Sebastian, or, the Spanish
frontier direct to Harve. There Mile.
Levene is said to have donned male
attire, the very suit that the doctor is
known to have purchased in London,
and in this garb she went on board with
him. Before boarding the vessel they
stayed at the Hotel Frascati.
Wireless messages from the Sardinia
say the couple are being kept under
close surveillance but do not know they
are watched.
Regents Canal was dragged on Satur-
say in the hope of finding the feet,
hands, head and portions of the torso,
which have not been found, and which
were cut from the mangled portions
of the body found in the quick lime bath
under the cement floor of the celler in
the Crippen home.
The detectives have a new theory today regarding the disposition of the
body. They believe that the larger
bones were dissolved in Sulphuric acid.
In the celler with the body a coat- hand-
herchief, and bits of clothing were found.
The police are endeavoring to have the
coat indentified and they are asking close
friends of Crippen if they can identify
the coat as the property of the missing
man. Even should they be able to prove
that the coat was his, the detectives admit that they would not have a much
stronger case against Crippen than they
now have, because it is not unlikely that
a coat found in the celler of his own
home should belong to the doctor.
STRIKE WAS SETTLED
Pacific    Stevedoring   Co    Put

the
The strike of the stevedores employed
by the Pacific Stevedoring Co., of
Prince Rupert, was settled by the company paying the advance of 10c per
hour. The men suddenly quit work
Friday morning and asked for 50c an
hour instead of 40c an hour. They remained idle until this morning when
Capt. Mosher, who is in charge of the
company's interests notified the men
that the 50c would be paid. Work was
resumed at 7 o'clock.
TWO MILLION FIRE IN CHICAGO
Cause of Conflagration Was
the Intense Heat.
Number of Deaths from Sunstroke
In Chicago, Philadelphia and New
York and Hundreds of Cases of
Prostration. Sleepers Crowd Parks.
(Special to the Optimist)
Chicago, July 25.���The heat wave
is blamed for the great fire yesterday
which swept through the northeast
portion of the city and did damage estimated at two million dollars. Hundreds
of families were rendered homeless and
many more hundreds temporarily thrown
out of employment. The Northwest
Malting company's plant, the largest
in the world, was totally destroyed, as
was also the Oregon Brewery company's
buildings and plant. The fire is directly
traced to an explosion of grain dust,
owing to the high temperature.
The    ambulances   were   kept   busy
yesterday and the number of prostra
tion cases carried to the hospitals was
unusually large. Only three deaths were
reported.
Philadelphia, July 25.���Another heat
wave swept over the central states yesterday and in this city its effects were very
marked. Religious services were scarcely
attended, although the edifices formed
a cool retreat from the sweltering heat of
the streets. All the excursions were
densely crowded but in the poorer districts there was great suffering. Five
deaths were recorded during the day,
and there were many prostrations. It
was but little cooler after the sun went
down. The parks were crowded with
sleepers and thousands slept in the
streets.
New York, July 25.���It cooled off a
little yesterday early in the afternoon but
ar four o'clock the thermometer said
ninety degrees in the shade. It was a
day of intense suffering. Forty cases of
prostration were recorded at the hospitals  and one  death  from  sunstroke.
CHANGES AT THE DOCK
Grand Trunk Making a More Convenient  Passenger  Office
Extensive changes are going on at the
Grand Trunk Pacific dock. Mr. Mc-
Master's office at the corner is to be
made into a large passenger office at
the other side of the gangway, he and his
clerks will be accommodated in new and
commodious quarters now being built
for them.
Business has grown so that the bonded
warehouse is too small and workmen are
now extending this into the general
warehouse. Soon the latter will be too
small and necessitate the erection of a
new building at the southern end.
CHANGE OF SCHEDULE
Grand Trunk Pacific Boats To Land
Earlier   in    Day
According to the new schedule just
received the Grand Trunk Pacific boats
are due here at 11:30 in the morning instead of 1 p.m. the present time.
On her next trip up the Prince Rupert
will not go to Stewart, but will lay over
at this port for the making of some necessary repairs. She will leave for the south
at her usual time.
SIR WILFRID'S TRIP
Twenty State  Rooms  Reserved  For
Party  on   Prince  George
The Prince George will run on a
special schedule to bring Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and his party to Prince Rupert.
She will leave Seattle on August 18th
and her only intermediate stop will be
at Victoria, where the premier and his
party will embark. Twenty staterooms
have been reserved for the visitors.
Fined $5.00 Each
C. O. Rowe was fined Saturday afternoon $5.00 and costs for an assault
upon John Brownly. Rowe then laid
a similar charge against Brownly and
Brownly was fined $5,00 and costs.
These contributions to the city's exchequer were the direct results of a
scrap the men had in the Helgerson
block.
A movement iB on foot at Merritt
to secure a federal building for the
housing of the various government
services in that town.
PRINCE GEORGE
IN HOME PORT
NEW STEAMER HOURS AHEAD
OF HER SCHEDULE
Captain Robertson Says She is a
Crackerjack For Speed and in
Every Way���Captain Nicholson and
Mr.  Hinton Bring Their Families.
The new Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Prince George, sister ship to the Prince
Rupert, came in ahead of time on her
maiden voyage yesterday. She arrived
at 10:30, which was two and a half hours
ahead of her schedule time. Captain and
Mrs. Nicholson were on board and also
W. P. Hinton, general passenger agent
of the company with headquarters at
Winnipeg and his wife and child. David
M. Hays returned from Vancouver and
brought with him a large party from
Victoria, including Mr. and Mrs. O. C.
Bass and Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Veitch,
Miss Bass and C. C. Michenes.
Both the Nicholson and Hinton parties
went over to the islands on the Prince
Albert today. Mr. Hinton and his
family, after their return from thc islands
will stay in Prince Rupert until Thursday
and leave on the Prince Rupert, and on
the same day Captain Nicholson will
take another trip to the islands.
Captain George Robertson, in command of the Prince George, says that
the new steamer is certainly a crackerjack. He says she is one of the best boats
he has ever been on, and was in excellent
shape after being overhauled at Esquimalt after her long voyage around the
Horn.
It was a great disappointment that
the Prince George did not bring mail.
All Captain Nicholson could say in this
regard was that the matter was still
in the hands of the government.

paper writer is in the city for a few days.

MINERALS ALONG THE RAILWAY UNE
Great Natural Wealth of Vast Country Lying Between Prince Rupert and Edmonton
Described Officially by Grand Trunk Pacific
Ar authoiitative account of the mineral wealth ot the vast wilderness in
the "Last West" now being opened by
the construed_n o_ the Grand Trunk
Pacific, west from Edmonton to Pi ince
Rupert, has now Deen issued from G.
T. P. headquarters. This account states
that going west from Edmonton along
the new line frcm Edmonton the first
true coals are found in the Pembina
Brazeau and Big Horn fields. Heie bituminous coal of a high grade has been
discovered, and boring shows that come
of the seams are thick. Several large
propeities are being developed. The
Kanasaki Coal company, the German
Development company, and the Canadian Northern Railway company���a line
that will also strike for the Yellowhead���have all done prospecting work
hereabouts, and conditions are good for
the working of the seams.
After these fields, the next valuable
seams are in the Yellowhead pass and
adjacent igro'und. Here bituminous coals
of thirty and forty feet in thickness are
found, and owing to the mountainous
country they pitch considerably. The
Grand Trunk Pacific and the O'Brien
interests of Cobalt fame are getting
busy in this district in addition to several concerns. This vicinity is a repetition of the Crow's Nest pass.
Along the Fraser river and its tributary rivers some high grade coals are
in evidence, especially on the Bear river,
where seams of good showing have been
located. On the Telkwa river the Kiti-
mat Development syndicate, the Transcontinental Exploration syndicate and
the Cassiar Coal company have coal
properties. The Telkwa coal is an anthracite quality, five or six feet thick,
and lies in fairly undisturbed ground.
In this region coal also outcrops at
Driftwood creek, Moricetown, on the
Zymoter or Copper rivers, on the Gold-
stream river and also several other
creeks and rivers. Placer gold mining
is active over the most of this country, quartz mining receiving little attention so far. The Guggenheim Exploration company have properties in
the Cariboo.
At Hazelton a good galena vein has
been struck. Past the Hazelton district
many discoveries of ore and placer gold
have been made in the Skeena country.
Gypsum deposits are also located. Iron,
zinc, platinum (with placer gold and silver) and some building stone are found
in this region. To the north, oil is struck.
In the Prince Rupert country a group
of Canadian and American capitalists
control an area of about 5,000 acres that
contain gold, silver, lead and copper.
Important camps are expected here soon.
The whole of the country north of a
line drawn from Hazelton to Lesser
Slave lake is practically unprospected,
but has every appearance of being rich
in minerals. A fifty-foot seam of coal
outcrops as far north as the Mackenzie
river. A huge natural gas and oil belt
exists north of Lesser Slave lake.
Hitherto operations have been practically prohibited owing to the isolation of the country and the heavy cost
of taking in material. Everything has
to be packed in over long and heavy
trail roads. An exploration or prospecting trip was an ardous undertaking and meant months in �� wilderness.
Progress was slow and difficult. The
advent of the Grand Trunk Pacific rail-
way,however, will revolutionize all this.
It invades the heart of the rough
country, and begins an era of real development for the Canadian north-west,
effecting the transformation of a wild,
uncultivated region into a rich, productive territory.
A transcontinental railway implies
tributary lines, and several western
branch roads are already proposed to
tap the surrounding country of the new
system. Truly the map of the far
"northern wilderness" is assuming
strange patterns.
OTHER END OF
BIG DISTRICT
MR.  MANSON TELLS OF GREAT
ACTIVITY OF COMOX
Our Member Seeking Government
Aid from Government In Behalf
Of Hia Constituent* for Roads to
Open up a Number of Industries,
Victoria, July 22.���The spirit of
optimism is nowhere in British Columbia better exemplified than in the
Comox district���all parts of it, according to the testimony of Mr. M. Man-
son, member of that constituency in
the legislature, who has recently completed a tour of his large and important
district. No section of the province,
Mr. Manson observes, stands to benefit in larger proportion nor more
rapidly, through the practical and broad
activities of Messrs. Mackenzie and
Mann then Comox; no district is busier
at the present time, or more hopeful and
confident of the future. The development of the extensive timber holdings
throughout Comox district, the opening
of new and promising mines, the settlement of the various important agricultural sections, and last but not least the
prospective establishment of theprovincial
national park at and about Buttle
lake���all contribute to a general and

interests in Comox district. At present a railway is building to the heart
of the company's holdings, which begins on the south side of Comox Harbor and traverses the settlement and
the town of Courtney. The builders
are now working in Courtney itself.
About eight or nine miles from Courtney the company plans the establishment of a town, with car shops electric light, water service etc., the site
of this new and important camp being at the end of the, Creech road.
Another concern whose operations
mean very much to Comox district, its
business and its future is that whose
pulp wood enterprises on the Powell
River is now taking definite form.
This company has four or five hundred men at work, and aims to increase this force to perhaps nine hundred in the near future. Ij. looks to
be an industry of the greatest importance in the growth of British Columbia."
Mr. Manson's present missicn to the
capital was more directly to secure
additional government aid towards
providing facilities of ingress and egress
for the colonists who recently have taken
up farmsteads at Cache Creek, at the
extreme northern end of the district.
At the time of the members visit, the
little community included thirteen men,
nine women and five children, with
additions to the number of the settlers
constantly expected. Cache Creek is
at present isolated most disadvantageous^, the only means of access being
by water from Shushertie Bay. From
this point it ib necessary to take canoe,
rowboat or launch for fifteen miles
around Cape Commerell, making the
landing near the mouth of Cache Creek
virtually from the open sea. Naturally
this can only be done with good weather
and favoring tides, and much inconvenience has been caused the settlers
in consequence. On one occasion last
year a young settler and his wife were
obliged to remain an entire month at
Shushartie before opportunity presented
for them to get through to their home.
As considerable land can be made
available in the Cache Creek neighborhood���sufficient, in Mr. Manson's
opinion, to provide for a couple of
hundred settlers���he has induced the
government to supplement the existing grant for a trail by $8500, making $5000 in all available; and this
trail is now being proceeded with
simultaneously from both ends���one
gang working from Shushartie and
the other from Cache Creek, to meet
presumably about the  Nahwitte River,
which will eventually have to be bridged
when the temporary trail is converted
into a permanent wagon road. The trail
will be about fifteen miles in length, and
will be completed by autumn so that
pack horses may be used over it. Last
year the Cache Creek settlers were so
completely isolated that ten weeks on
one occasion elapsed between mails. The
new road will ere long be extended
from Shushartie to Hardy Bay, which
must eventually be an important trunk
terminus. The majority of the Cache
Creek settlers are of Scottish extraction,
with a sprinkling of the Norse.

DARK DAYS AHEAD
The problem of securing electric power for the city which the aldermen and
City Engineer are now working on is a big project whioh will take months to work
out and months more to complete. About the only certainty connected with it at
the present time is the knowledge that it will be a big investment. In the meantime
industries in the city requiring power will work along with gasoline and the citizens
will continue to buy lamps and coal oil. Next winter will find the city as dark and as
dangereous as was last winter unless in the meantime temporary gasoline street
lights are installed. The proposition to put in a steam plant for electric power has
been apparently abandoned as too costly a luxury and certainly the propose^ prices
to private consumers was an exhorbitant and impossible rate. Just why a 16 c.p.
light (as the uninitiated know it) should cost $1.60 per month is a mystery to most
people and the citizens admit they would not use it at that price. It does seem unreasonable that Prince Rupert should be unable to get light at prices somewhere near
the cost of it elsewhere in Canada, and at points further away from coal fields
than this place. If the city council cannot figure out a cheaper price Prince Rupert
is going to be dark for a long time to come.

Visit tha Hot Springs
Returning from the falls the party
pade its way down the Ecstall to the
Skeena River again and then took a run
jip stream several miles to thc hdt springs.
_ small, uninviting shack is built about
. feet back on the mud flats and at the
,Jt of the mountain. Inside the shack
j a wooden tank full of very hot water
Vhich is supplied from a spring about 100
���-et up the mountain. The supply of the
Inter never varies, neither does the
temperature. Mr. Agnew told about a
path he and some other G. T. P. surveyors took in the tank in the winter
[when the snow was falling very fast
and there was no roof on the shack at
(that time. The hot springs are held in
reserve by the Provincial Government and
some day they will be largely patronized
by the citizens of Prince Rupert and
northern  British   Columbia.
Wolfe   Creek   Falls
Saturday night was spent at Port
Essington and early Sunday morning
the party left for Inverness where they
took to the ties and followed the G. T. P.
tracks for several miles until
Official Guide Agnew started the party
"P over the townsite of Port Edward.
The formation of this townsite is very
similar to Prince Rupert, but it has never
keen cleared and the underbrush and
decayed trees made travelling very
i difficult, it is a good mile or more to
! Wolfe Creek and after the aldermen had
looked at the rapids below the falls they
started to climb to the top. The Wolfe
Creek falls are very much smaller, although none the less picturesque. There
is a drop of 180 feet more or less, but
jhe volume of water is much less. It
is estimated that about 700 horse power
could be developed here, and this in
junction with the Ecstall Falls would
make a total of 12,700 horse power.
A snort rest was taken at the top of
'he falls and then the "seekers after
Power" returned to the boat and had
dinner and started for Prince Rupert,
arriving here about two o'clock.
It was the intention at first to visit
^e water power at Georgetown but the
party were too tired and as Mr. Agnew
could not go up and act as guide it was
decided to take that trip at another time.

BULKLEY VALLEY
IS VERY RICH
WELL KNOWN MINING MAN TELL
OF   ITS   RICHES
R. G. Steel Brought Down Rich
Sample* of Ore From Hudson Bay
Mountain���A Great Country For
Mining and Agriculture.
R. G. Steele, a mining man who has
had experience all over the world and
who has represented some of the biggest
financial houses in the world, has just
returned from a four month's trip to
the interior where he was doing some
prospecting.
Mr. Steele spent most of his time on
Hudson Bay mountain near Aldermere.
and after many weeks of hard work in
prospecting he pronounces it a great
country with a great future.
The country is full of prospectors up
there and some wonderfully rich prospects have been opened. Many claims
have been worked for development and
when the railroad runs up the Bulkley
Valley there will be a start on some big
mining operations. The big Hudson Bay
mountain is full of ore, mostly silver,
lead and gold. Some of the properties
look so well that Mr. Steele bonded them
for a Prince Rupert syndicate in which
he is interested. He also picked up a lot
of new claims and the samples brought
down are some of the richest specimens
ever produced in the country. They are
now being turned over to the assayist
and they will probably show startling figures. Until these assays are made
the syndicate will take no definite
action respecting their property.
As a long-experienced and practical
field man Mr. Steele thinks the interior
country is going to be the best yet opened
in British Columbia. He anticipates
great smelters in the district in the near
future. Besides the big order bodies
there is plenty of placer gold and unknown quantities of coal.
He also tells of the fertility of the
great Bulkley valley which is 20 miles
wide between the ranges of mountains.
The soil is as wonderfully rich in agricultural wealth as the hills are in mineral wealth.
Wheat, berries and roots grow to
magnificent proportions and the climate
is such that fruit and grain will be one
of the big products of the interior
country. Already a deal of land has been
cleared and more is being put under
cultivation every week.
Prince Rupert Subsidy
Dry Docks are in season. A well-known
British firm will probably build one in
Montreal, Quebec wants a dock on the
Levis side. Sault Ste. Marie has secured a
bubsidy for its dock. North Vancouver
has been subsidized with the Bame
object in view. The Grand Trunk
Pacific will have one one at Prince Rupert
St. John will also secure a dock, and
Collingwood is already a proud possessor.
The bait is Canadian prosperity and its
future. The tasty sauce is the Government  subsidy.���Monetary  Times.

FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
The fire alarm boxes will be
placed on posts and will be painted red. The number of each box
willjbe on the'door. To send Iin
a call you open the door of the
box; a telephone will -be found
inside ; take down thejreceiver
and await a reply from the fire
hall. The telephone is connected
with a gong in the hall. When a
reply is received from the fire
hall, give the number of the box
from which you are speaking.
That will be sufficient If the
number of the box is not given
the brigade will not turn out, but
the call will be treated as a false
alarm.

(Special to the Optimist)
Nagasaki, July 25.���The Tatseuru
Maru struck a rock off Chianto island
on Saturday night and in a very short
time went down. The captain and most
of the crew went down with the ship
but all the passengers were got off in the
boats. They had not time, however, to
put in a supply of provisions and had no
appliances for sailing, so they could only
drift. Two of the boats safely landed on
Chianto island but the others, which
carry one hundred and five passengers
and fifty army officers have not been
heard from. Warships have their boats
and launches out searching for the missing, but there is so heavy a fog on that
their efforts are unavailing. W. Cunningham, the British consul at Osaka,
was among those saved.

URGE HUGE SUM
FOR DEFENCE
APPEAL AND AIMS OF IMPERIAL
NATIONAL LEAGUE
Five Hundred Millions Asked For
National Defence For Purpose of
Maintaining British Naval Sup>
rernecy on War Footing.
London, July 21.��� In a letter to the
press of the Empire the Imperial Maritime League makes public the objects
of its appeal to the British parliament
to sanction a loan of $600,000,000 fot
national defence. The appeal is signed by 158 flag officers and general officers of His Majesty's navy and army.
The printed appeal deals exhaustively with the binding needs of maintaining British naval supremecy and of
rendering the British Empire efficient
for war.
This movement has been initiated
and will be pursued by the Imperial
Maritime League, founded in 1908 to
secure the maintenance of British sea
power, with these objects: Of assuring the safety of the entire empire
and of its sea-borne trade; of unifying the question of national and imperial defence, by procuring the joint
consideration of its needs, by sea, by
land and by air; of removing the provision of the financial means of such
defence from the vexed domain of the
party politics of Great Britain into the
serener atmosphere of knowledge and
of responsibility.
In taking this momentous step the
league declares it has correctly gauged public sentiment, and that this is
already apparent from the powerful
editorial support accorded it by some
of the principal organs of British public
opinion. During the two and a half
years of' the league's existence, the
absolute correctness of its diagnosis of
the bearing of naval policy has been
demonstrated by events, and Admiral
Lord Charles Beresford has publicly
testified that "As a matter of fact, it
was the Maritime League that first saw
the dangers we were drifting into,
and brought them before the public."

PREMIER FOR FOURTEEN YEARS
Years of Progress in Prosperity, in Nation
Building and in Unification.
July 11th was the fourteenth anniversary of the day when Mr. Wildrid
Laurier was sworn in as Prince Minister
of the Dominion. The fourteen years
during which he has been the head of
the Government of Canada are years
that stand out preeminently in Canadian history as years of progress in prosperity, in nation-building and in unification of the Canadian people. They
are the years that have seen the development of Western Canada, which
is the central fact, the keystone in the
arch of Canadian development.
Very different is the Western Canada
which Sir Wilfrid will see on his present tour from the Western Canada
which he traversed in 1894 as leader of
the Opposition in the Dominion Parliament. The contrast is one which he
can justly regard as giving him ground
for legitimate pride in the results of the
policies of development set in operation
under his guidance; circumstances have
helped in the working out of those policies
but the guiding principle in the carrying
out of the development policies of the
Government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier has
been "to take occasion by the hand,"
to seise upon the circumstances and turn
them to Canada's advantage. The
fertility of Western Canada was in
1894 what it is now; but it was not until
after Sir Wilfrid Laurier became Prime
Minister that the developments began
which have drawn the whole world's
attention to this country.
The record of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
achievements in the interests of Canada and the Empire, achievements of
far sighted statesmanship and patriotic services, is a long one. He has
devoted all his splendid powers to the
work of advancing Canada's greatness
of strengthening its internal coherence,
of welding it more and more solidly
into the Imperial unity. The first
master-stroke of his Government was
the establishment of the tariff preference on British goods entering Canada,
a departure which gave a new lead in
Imperial development; and a couple of
years later, when the outbreak of the
war in South Africa brought on a
critical period in the history of the
Empire, Sir Wilfrid gave convincing
proof of his being an Imperial statesman, in whom Canadian patriotism
and allegiance to the British flag are
indissoluble.
It is not necessary to refer here to the
many policies inaugurated by his Government which have promoted
such immense success the progress
and prosperity of Western Canada and
of the whole Dominion. Their results
speak for them. His fellow-Canadians
hope that for many years to come he
will continue to serve his country.
With his greatness as a statesman he
unites  an integrity of  personal  char-

acter which is a strong factor in the
strong influence which he weilds over
the minds and hearts of the Canadian
people.
"The Twentieth Century belongs to
"Canada, as the Nineteenth belonged
"to the United States," said Sir Wilfrid
in a memorable speech several years
ago. With all his mind and heart he
has worked to build up Canadian na*
tional greatness and to secure that
Canadian unity without which Canada
could never hope to realize her high
destiny.

THAT   COMPANIES'   LAW.
Monetary Times    Says Its Enforcement   Will   be   Bitterly   Fought.
If British Columbia profits by
its new Companies Act to the Uune of
a few thousand dollars, it will, on the
other hand lose prestige and acquire
an unenviable reputation for provincialism. In brief, the new law
provides that every company, other
than companies originating in the
Province, seeking to do business in
British Columbia must be either
registered or licensed by the Provincial Government. The license fees
may be commuted for affixed sum
of $250 in the case of companies having
an established business outside of
British Columbia in which at least
half of their capital is invested. The
penalities for doing business without license or registration is $50 per
day for a company and $20 per day
for an agent. Debts due to companies
not licensed or registered are not
collectable under the law of British
Columbia.
Apparently a bank with a Dominion charter is prevented by the new
law from collecting upon commercial
paper without becoming licensed or
registered under the Act. The Monetary Times' Vancouver staff correspondent states that M. Bowser," the
Attorney-General of British Columbia,
will employ a special officer to see
that the Act is enforced. The Provincial Government will not wait
long for a culprit. A final appeal to
give this legislation further consideration will be made by those affected
to Premier McBride. Failing action
by him, a test case will be carried
through to the highest court. Counsel
will be engaged both in the East and
in the West, and if the offending
enactment can psjssibly be declared
ultra vires, no pains will be spared
to have that done. We cannot see yet
the purposes served or objects attained   by   this   questionable   legislation.
Canada extends over forty degrees
of latitude��� equal from Rome to
the   North   Pole.
Sixty-three million acres of Canada's area occupied, thirty million
acres thereof improved (1901 census).
Canada is larger in area than the
United States, including Alaska, by
111,992 square miles. (Canada,
3,729,665; United States and Alaska,
3,617,673).
Canada is as large as thirty United
Kingdoms and eighteen Germanys:
twice the size of British India; almost
as large as Europe; eighteen times
as large as France; thirty-three of
Italy.
