Policeman Arrested Judge in Presence of a Big
Crowd and Sent for the Patrol Wagon
street without thc policeman's permission refused to "move on."
Accordingly the officer of the
law, placed the Judge under arrest. The unusual spectacle caused
a large crowd to congregate. Thc
excitement deepened when the

with the evident intention of haling
the Judge off to the local cooler.
Explanations Followed
Before the civic coach arrived,
explanations were made, and the
Judge was allowed to tlepart from
arrest. He has been made the
subject ol many humorous inquiries. Judge Mclnnis is taking
the whole affair in good part, anil
appreciates the humor of the situation, along with the rest of the

Trade Agreement with Japan and China
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Ottawa, May 19.���Oriental immigration, especially as it affects
the future well-being of British
Columbia, came up for discussion
in the House of Commons last
nighl when Hon. W. S. Fielding
moved for the House to appoint a
committee to consider a resolution
for extending the existing trade
agreement with Japan.
Mr. Martin Burrell, member for
Yale-Cariboo, at once urged that
Canada should abandon its efforts
to develop a large trade with
Japan and China, and adhere to
the new treaty between Great
Britain and Japan, So far as
Canada was concerned he urged
that   measures   be   taken   to   re
strict or to prohibit die immigration in Canada of Japanese.
All of the other Conservative
members from   British  Columbia
supported    Mr.    Burrell's    stand,
demanding a total prohibition of
Japanese immigration into British
Columbia. The House voted to
appoint the committee.

premises on lhe corner ol Second

Visits the Mine With Dad
Nick Sheridan, manager of thc
Portland Canal Mine, is now
on his way to Stewart to visit the
mine. lie is in Prime Rupert,
having come by lhe Prince Rupert
on Wednesday, and is going on
by the Camosun. Mr. Sheridan
is accompanied by his wife and
child who have already paid a
visit to the mine. The little one
has to be literally "packed" up
the mountain for two thousand
five hundred feet in a specially
arranged and cosy pack-sack and
board. The trip is a huge entertainment for the youngster who
is looking forward to it wilh as
much enthusiasm as the popular
mine   manager   possesses   for   his
prosperous property.
readied Prince Rupert yesterday
and set out for the south with
their boats by the Prince Rupert
this morning.
Lost  Schooner
The men left the schooner on
the 12th. in Hecate Strait between
Banks Island and Queen Charlotte
Sound in two boats hunting
for sea otters. During the afternoon a baffling heat haze obscured
thc horizon and they completely
lost track of the schooner. By
chance the two boats which had
been separated, met, and keeping
together searched for the ship
till night. Then they tried to
reach land twenty-five miles off.
There were provisions and water
in the boats for only one meal.
It was late on the 18th when they
sighted the coast, and all were
in distress with hunger and thirst.
Inhospitable Coast
Surf was breaking on the rocky
shore, and for a time it was
difficult to land at all, but at last
a lauding was effected, and sheltering themselves under the boats'
sails stretched on the oars, the men
spent the night. They found some
water, antl managed to light a
fire, but not until low title did they
lind some clams. They hatl no
idea where they were, but next
tlay continued their journey northwards along the coast trying to
find an inhabited place, and eating
mostly shellfish. Sometimes they
managed to shoot a duck, but the

food they could get was far too
scanty.
Made Kitkatla
Struggling along like this from
point to point on the lonely coast
the famished men reached Kitkatla on the I tith. Here they
found only Indians, and for some
Unexplained reason they did not
succeed in getting any food. Hut
an Indian told them in broken
Knglish how to reach Claxton
where he saitl they would find
white men. Wearily they set out
again, but mistaking their direction they took lhe wrong side of
Porcher Island, and had again
to spend a night on thc rocks
without footl.
"MeCullough" Saved Them
On Thursday the 17th, they were
off lhc mouth ol the Skeena, and
here the tug MeCullough met
them antl Captain Herbert Clifton
took them on board and fetl them
royally. They were utterly tired
out with rowing, and rested the
night before setting out directed
by Captain Clifton, for Prince
Rupert. Yesterday morning, however, they came on here, arriving
about mid-day.

the Mayor at once gave theni an

feeling that they have had enough
of the sea to last theni for a while,
they were anxious to go below.
Captain Barney Johnston of the
Prince Rupert came to the rescue
and swinging the two seal-boats
aboard, arranged for the accommodation of the seamen as far as
Vancouver. They left this morning at eight 'clock.
Two Hardy Sea-dogs
Bob Stewart, who was looking
pretty haggard after his experience, and Joe Morrell, who wears
still a look of anxiety, arc both
well known seal hunters, and have
had many perilous experiences.
Hob Stewart was lost in an open
boat -I" miles off the coast of
Trinidad six years ago when he
was sealing wilh the schooner
"llatsy." The present experience
is his fourth of this kind. Joe
Morrell has been in similar plight
three times at least, once off the
coast of Japan. But both men
tied.ire that this latest adventure
of theirs was very nearly the last.
They are making for home for a
long spell ashore before they face
die sea again.
Schooner Still Searching
The sealing schooner Peschawha
as reported by wireless, in charge
of Captain Bert Halcom, and is
still in the neighborhood of the
Queen Charlolte Islands though
probably all hope of finding the
missing boats has now been given
up by the captain. (Wirele88 messages have been sent to the Islands
to inform Captain Balcom of thc
rescue of the men.

wires. While the talkers talked, Ki

London,   May   18.���It   is   now
reported   that  one of  the objects
of the German Emperor's visit
to England is to discuss the possibility of the engagement of his
daughter to tlie Prince of Wales.
The princess is looked on as one
of thc most charming of the
royal princesses. The Prince of
Wales will be eighteen years old
next month. No mention of a
bride for him has previously been
made.
Will Give Canadians Exclusive
Right to Halibut Banks
The Dominion Government has
entrusted an important ~ork to
Mr. F. II. Mackie of the astronomical stall of the Department of
the Interior. It is to make a
survey of the boundary line from
the head of the Portland Canal
to the open sea. The work will
take the party of ten ihree seasons
to complete, and involves must
careful calculations.
It is probable thai monuments
will  be established  at   different
points on either side of the canal,
indicating their distance from the
actual boundary in the channel.
At the entrance of the canal the
boundary line swings flue west
terminating directly south of Cape
Muyon at the soulh entl of Prince
of Wales Island, Alaska.
According to the Canadian contention this will make Dixon Entrance   between   Prince   of   Wales
Island ami  the Queen Charlotte
Islands territorial waters of Canada, ensuring exclusively to Canadian! the right to lish on the
greatest halibut banks in existence.

The Danger of a Speculative-Value Assessment
A visiter to the News office who frankly confessed that until
recent events had showed him the value of independent criticism, he
had entertained anything but kindly feelings for this paper, informed
us that his assessment has been raised irom S'MW to $2,000, an increase
of 566 per cent We did not, in the stress ol dealing with more import'
,mt subjects, inquire whether tlie increase covered any improvements
which had been effected during the year.
Hut an assessment paper in which we aro moro particularly in-
terested lies on our desk, showing that a certain unimproved lot, which
last yi'.ir w.is assessed at s:U)t�� is now assessed .it 1600, an increase
of exactly 100 per cent. This may be taken .is an intimation of what
awaits many citizens. That the polity is to tax up to the hilt is evident
from the facl that the piece of property changed hands, this year
after being on the market for several weeks, for only$675. In fact
the gentleman whosi assessment was raised from $300 to $2,000,
indicated his willingness to accept   half that sum for it.
We do not suggesi ihat everyone is going to meet with a jump
of 100 pt-r conl on i icir tax bill. The assessment record issued by
the city council showsthat on the average the public will only have
its assessment raised a fraction over (iti per cent. Some of course
will have their taxes raiMtl one hundred and two hundred per cent,
and some only thirty or forty per cent. Hut the average on the whole
bulk of thc private citizens will only be a little better than <>(> per
com. Last year the private owners of lots won- assessed on $4,700,-
822.50.    This year they are assessed on $7,820,880.
This increase is made necessary by the new policy of reducing
the assessment of the railway company's property from $2,280,630
tn .$242,320.
The most serious aspect of the question however is not the in-
creased taxes most of u> will pay, nor the fear that the council may
be contemplalii g the taxation of improvements, and thus retard thc
dcvelopmenl "i industry, li i-- thc great ri>k which follows if borrowing --litiulil be attempted on the b.isis of a high assessment.
Cities like other corporations need capital. Like other corporations
ihi�� capital is borrowed in the money markets, security for the loans
being given. In the case uf British Columbian cities the security
is in the form of a first claim on the taxes, the borrowing power of
cities being limited by the Municipal Clauses Act to SO per com of the
assessment. Last year British Columbia municipalities borrowed
in London alone .t sum of $6,980,828.
To safeguard the interests of investors is one of the dudes which
devolve upon the large banking houses who negotiate the loans, and
in this connection, .Mr. !'. \V. Taylor, London manager of the Bank
of Montreal on December XM lasl stated to the Monetary Times
in reply to the question: "Is there any danger of Western Canadian
municipalities burrowing too heavily?"
"The Bank <>i Montreal woultl be the first to avoid becoming
the medium for a public issue of any municipality which, in its
opinion was borrowing excessively, as we have too great respect
for own prestige .is an issuing In .use, and for the credit <>f Canada
as a ��hole, tn du othenvisc."
It needs no special cxpertness in economics and finance to perceive
thai borrowing on an assessment based on speculative values is an
exceedingly ri^ky ihing even t" attempt, Even if the banking houses
wire agrcuablc to float .i loan based mi speculative values, the tenders
for the loa and the underwriting fees would be based, not on what
a city official declared thc value ol thc security to be worth, but on
what theii own expert valuators declared the security in be worth.
\ tradesman who wanted to increase his borrowings from the
b.mk from 81,500 i" $3,000 would nol hope to succeed by merely
ni,irking up On selling price "I his goods 200 per cent Such a irick
would ii"i only kill his chances ol securing the loan, it would kill his
ch.mns .,( Belling his stock also, It would also kill the banker's faith
in him.
The illustration expresses in an exaggerated degree one of the
dangers which confronts the ��ii>- il ii attempts any finance of the
thimble-rigging kind, based <m a speculative value assessment.
The wounds of a friend are more to be desired than the kisses
Ol an enemy, ll is kindness in poinl mil thai the policy of increasing
the taxes ol thc citizens by (iii per cenl will not deceive the financial
world into believing thai the .security offered by the city has been
enhanced in value by thai enormous sum.
