IEFIANT TO THE LAST TOLSTOI PASSES AWAY

pong on this point.
To Be Buried With Pomp
(Notwithstanding all this the body
to be buried with much pomp and
iremony. It was removed today to
���ya Pelina, where the funeral is
i tuke place tomorrow. A large body
troops, ostensibly as a guard of
Bnor but really from apprehension of
Jsturbances at the grave, will form a
Irdon at the funeral.
ICountess Tolstci was admitted to the
Ik room at midnight and remained
fctil the final moment. She had herself
���0 striken with illness and had passed
four days without food. She was
prostrated mentally and physically by
the fact of her husband leaving his
home, and her illness came to such a
critical stage that she received the last
sacrament. It was after this she astonished her physicians by demanding to be
taken to her husband, and she would
listen to no objections. The countess
therefore journeyed to Astopova, accompanied by M. T. Tcherkoff and her
two sons.
Countess Wat Too Late
It was sad for the countess that after
having obtained entrance to hei husband's sick room she was too late to
have speech with him. But the shock
came when she was informed that no
church service over the remains would
be permitted. She swooned away and
the physicians were for nearly an hour
apprehensive that she was joining her
husband.
Those in close touch with the family
of the novelist say that at the time of
his leaving home Count Tolstoi felt
the approach of death, and that his
disappearance from home was influenced
by a desire to spare his family pain
from the complications that might arise
at the funeral because of his ex-communication by the Greek church.
Prince Obesanski, who first gave to
the world the news that the count had
abandoned his home secretly to seek
solitude, pointed out that Tolstoi was
deeply interested in the legends of
Alexander I, who did not die when
he is supposed to have done, but passed
many years in Siberia under the name of
Kusmitch.
Had Gone Away To Die
The mind of the great Russian scarcely
could have conceived a more tragic
ending of the two lives which have been
interwoven for half a century. Overcome with fatigue while attempting to
continue his pilgrimage form the monastery at Shamardino to the Caucasus,
where he had hoped to spend his last
days with the Tolstoian colony on the
shores of the Black Sea, his body lies
today in a miserable hut at the railway
flag station at Astopova, his countess,
faithful to the last, beside his bier.
At last reports the physician had
grave doubts of the recovery of the
countess.

The Children's Concert in aid of the
Prince Rupert General Hospital Fund,
arranged for by the Ladies' Auxiliary,
takes place on Thursday evening at
eight o'clock sharp.
For the past two weeks the children
have been working most willingly and
enthusiastically preparing themselves for
their parts in the program which will be
a full and attractive one. The Boy
Scouts will take part in the entertainment, and have been preparing energetically for their part in it.
The reason for the hour of eight being
fixed for the concert to commence
is in order that the young people may
finish their long program early and not
have to stay up late.

A MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE
Some excitement has been caused
in town by the disappearance under
mysterious circumstances of "Doc" Morgan, one of our best known and most
popular of Prince Rupert's citizens.
A week ago he was seen to embark
for the north with a gun, an open air
sleeping outfit with hot water in every
room, a camp stove, two cans of preserved pineapple and a genial smile. A
rumor got started that he had embarked
on a Polar expedition to settle the
Peary-Cook controversy, but last night
he reappeared, explained that he had
merely gone on a shooting trip to
Georgetown. He invited a large number
of his friends to take supper with him
tonight and arranged with the hostess
of the Tea Kettle Inn to have the goose
in readiness to greet the company.
Up till a late hour this afternoon
neither the goose nor the genial "Doc"
have been seen, and their friends are
getting anxious about them.

BOY SCOUTS AT WORK
Deipatch Delivery Drill This Afternoon
The Boy Scouts were out this afternoon in full strength under Captain
Brown, Lieutenant Flexman and Dr.
Reddic. The drill consisted in despatch
delivery between the reservior and a
point beyond McBride street. The
"Enemy" through whose lines the
despatches were supposed to be safely
and secretly carried, stretched along the
line of McBride street. The boys are
bright and alert, and keenly enjoyed the
manoevures.
FIGHT ABOUT A GIRL
Two Men Killed and Several Wounded  in  Battle of Armed  Men
The value and urgent need of publicity
work was drawn to the attention of the
Board of Trade at iu monthly meeting
last night and discussed with a great
deal of interest, but when it came to the
selection of the committee to take the
matter up one after another of the
members named courteously but firmly
declined to serve, even though some of
them had spoken in favor of such a
course being taken.
The matter was introduced by a letter
from Mr. Von Dohlcn, former secretary
of the Prince Rupert Publicity Club,
addressed to Mr. Law. He suggested
the appointment of a secretary who
would act as secretary of the board and
also as secretary of the Real Estate
Exchange, and devote his best efforts
to publicity work under the direction
of the Board of Trade. He had a good
publicity man to suggest in W. R. Hull,
who would expect a salary of from $150
1 to $176 per month. A latter from Mr.
' Hull, applying for the position, was also
read.
A Novel Proposal
Mr. Law's suggestion was to get at
least forty people in town to guarantee
; to subscribe $5 per month.   This would
| give a salary of $160 per month, and a
j little over for office rent and so forth.
Mr. H. H. Clarke, former president of
| the Publicity Club, said Mr. Law's
j ideas were good if they could be carried
out. The Publicity Club had done
a lot of good work and such work was
now more necessary than ever. The
proposition to employ this man was all
right, but the board should be sure
it was going io get the money before it
hired the man.
Cat a Civic Grant
Aid. Naden thought Mr. Law's suggestion a good one, but in regard to the
Real Estate Exchange, they had now
an exceedingly good secretary. If they
were going lo appoint a publicity man
he might be secretary of the Board of
Trade and then the Board get for
publicity purposes a vote from thc city
council of say $1000 a year.
Mr. M. M. Stephens Agreed that the
combination would have to be between
the Board of Trade and the city council
as the Real Estate Exchange was very
well satisfied with its secretary. He
thought the burden of the expense
should be borne by the people of the
city, as the Real Estate Exchange had

already done it tare, and, in fact, had
been heavily taxed for the publicity
work done so far.
Blamed the Merchants
J. H. Rogers said if they referred to
the membership of the Publicity Club
they would find that the merchants
had not done as much as the real estate
men, in fact many of them had refused
to join or to subscribe at all.
Later, in discussing the question of
funds Mr. Law pointed out that they
could not expect a good man for such
a position to collect his own salary.
Mr. Tite said the city had been canvassed for subscriptions very much
this year, and he thought if the matter
was left in abeyance until the new year
better results could be obtained.
Finally a motion was put to appoint
a publicity committee but when the
president mentioned one after another
for such a committee, each one named
declined. It was thereupon decided
that the president should appoint the
committee at his leisure.

ZANARDI WATER POWER
Board of Trade Withdraws Objection
To  the  Scheme
Alderman Barrow sent a letter to the
Board of Trade, which was read at the i
meeting last night, stating that the city
council had withdrawn its objections to .
the use of Zanardi Rapids, and asking!
that the board take similar action.   A
unit ion was passed that the board formally withdraw the objections filed in the
matter.
not do to be in a hurry about the matter.
He said the time was hardly ripe yet for
such a course of action. The large
ships had simply been bringing in
supplies for the railway. It might be
all right so far as they were concerned,
but it might deter the American boats,
which carried their own pilots, from
touching here. For the next two years
there would be very few large boats
coming here except for the railway,
therefore he thought any action at this
time would be premature.
Captain McCoskey replied that the
charge to the coasting boats would be
small in any case, and those local
steamers might be entirely exempted for
awhile.
Vancouver Might Get It
Mr. Tite asked if there was real
danger of Vancouver obtaining jurisdiction of the waters at this port.
Captain McCosky said there certainly
was, as the captains of the big ships
had applied to Vancouver for pilots,
understanding there were none here,
and Vancouver would have to apply
to the Dominion governemnt for an
extension of jurisdiction in order to be
able to supply such pilots.
-To Forestall Vancouver
J. H. Rogers thought it would be a
proper move to forestall Vancouver. He
thought it would be within the power
of the pilot board here to make the
pilot charge for American boats so
small that it would not dicer them from
coming here! Also, as had been pointed
out, the large deep sea boats really
demanded pliots, as otherwise they
could not get reasonable insurance
rates to this port. He believed now
was the time to recommend the appointment of a pilot board for Prince
Rupert. There were plenty of men
here who had captain's papers that
could do the work and not interfere
very much with their present occupations
Withdrew His Objection
Upon this Alderman Naden withdrew
his objection and Mr. Clarke moved
that the board petition the department
at Ottawa for the establishment of a
pilot commission at this port. This
was seconded by Mr. Rogers and the
motion carried.

1 Notwithstanding all this the body
to be buried with much pomp and
emony. It was removed today to
snaya Pelina, where the funeral is
i take place tomorrow. A large body
troops, ostensibly   aa  a   guard   of
tbut really from apprehension of
turbanres al the grave, will form a
don at the funeral.
Countess Tolslci was admitted to the
room at midnight and remained
flil the final moment. She had herself
en striken with illness and had passed
four days without food. She was
prostrated mentally and physically by
the fact of her husband leaving his
home, and her illness came to such a
critical stage that she received the last
sacrament. It was after this she astonished her physicians by demanding to be
taken to her husband, and she would
listen to no objections. The countess
therefore journeyed to Astopova, accompanied by M. T. Tcherkoff and her
two sons.
Countess Wat Too Late
It was sad for the countess that after
having obtained entrance to hei husband's sick room she was too late lo
have speech with him. But the shock
came when she was informed that no
church service over the remains would
be permitted. She swooned away and
thc physicianB were for nearly an hour
apprehensive that she was joining her
husband.
Those in close touch with the family
of the novelist say that at the time of
his leaving home Count Tolstoi felt
the approach of death, and that his
disappearance from home was influenced
by a desire to spare his family pain
from the complications that might arise
at the funeral because of his ex-communication by the Greek church.
Prince Obesanski, who first gave to
the world the news that the count had
abandoned his home secretly to seek
solitude, pointed out that Tolstoi was
deeply interested in the legends of
Alexander I, who did not die when
he is supposed to have done, but passed
many years in Siberia under the name of
Kusmitch.
Had Gone Away To Die
The mind of the great Russian scarcely
I could have conceived u more tragic
. ending of the two lives which have been
interwoven for half a century. Overcome with fatigue while attempting to
J continue his pilgrimage form the monas-
| tery at Shamardino to the Caucasus,
I where he had hoped to spend his last
j days with the Tolstoian colony on the
( shores of the Black Sea, his body lies
1 today in a miserable hut at the railway
\ flag station at Astopova, his countess,
'��� faithful to the last, beside his bier.
At last reports the physician had
I grave doubts of the recovery of the
! countess.

arranged for by the Ladies' Auxiliary,
takes place on Thursday evening at
eight o'clock sharp.
For the past two weeks the children
have been working most willingly and
enthusiastically preparing themselves for
their parts in the program which will be
a full and attractive one. The Boy
Scouts will take part in the entertainment, and have been preparing energetically for their part in it.
The reason for the hour of eight being
fixed for the concert to commence
is in order that the young people may
finish their long program early and not
have to stay up late.
At two o'clock yesterday afternoon
Mrs. Sarah Christina Mortoson the wife
of Louis Mortoson died at ther residence
of Third avenue. The late Mrs. Mortoson was a native of Sweden. With her
husband she had been upwards of eight
years in Canada, five years having been
spent in Winnipeg and two at Crows
Nest, B. C, where she and her husband
conducted a restaurant.
Her death was the result of a serious
burning accident which befell her some
time ago. She had a fainting fit while
carrying a lamp which ignited her dress.
Although in poor health at the time of the
accident Mrs. Mortoson lingered on
making a brave effort at recovery till a
day or two ago when it was realized
that she could not survive.
The funeral arrangements are in the
hands of F. W. Hart & Co., and it is
understood that Rev. Mr. James of the
Anglican church will conduct the service.

A MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE
Some excitement has been caused
in town by the disappearance under
mysterious circumstances of "Doc" Morgan, one of our best known and most
popular of Prince Rupert's citizens.
A week ago he was seen to embark
for the north with a gun, an open air
sleeping outfit with hot water in every
room, a camp stove, two cans of preserved pineapple and a genial smile. A
rumor got started that he had embarked
on a Polar expedition to settle the
Peary-Cook controversy, but last night
he reappeared, explained that he had
merely gone on a shouting trip to
Georgetown. He invited a large number
of his friends to take supper with him
tonight and arranged with the hostess
of the Tea Kettle Inn to have the goose
in readiness to greet the company.
Up till a late hour this afternoon
neither thc goose nor the genial "Doc"
have been seen, and their friends are
getting anxious about them.

(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 21���Hawley Crippen
broke down and wept this morning
when informed that the home secretary
had refused to intervene in hi" case. He
was brought from his cell into the
warden's room and the document was
formally read to him. He stood with
quivering lip for a moment and then
sunk limply into a seat und burst into
copious tears muttering to himself.
After this period of hysterica had
partially subsided the warden gave
the order to take the condemned back
to his cell. As the turnkey placed a
hand on his shoulder he pulled himself
together, raised his heud und in a fairly
firm voice said:
"I am prepared for the end. I shall
die firmly convinced that proofs of my
innocence will eventually come to light."
The execution is to take place at nine
o'clock on Wendesday morning. The
warden accompanied the prisoner back
to his cell and before leaving him said
that any reasonable request he might
| make would be granted. The condemned
! said he had only one to make ut present,
which was that Miss Le Neve might be
permitted to see him. The warden
said this privilege would be accorded
to him and he might see other friends.
It was rumored on Saturday that Miss
Le Neve had sailed for Montreal, but
this rumor has net yet been confirmed.
Vancouver, Nov. 21.���Though the
rain was heavy here yesterday no

Brought Back A Goose
"Doc"  Morgan,  the  last   west  rep-
I resentative of the Toronto Globe, re-
1 turned last night from Big Bay where he
has been the guest of G. LaF.  Peck,
! manager  of  the   Georgetown   sawmill.
| "Doc" put in  a  week  with  the shot
gun and rifle and wired daily reports
to  the  Wanderer's  Club  of  the  fight
of his quarry.    The deer proved very
timid  and  the ducks  and  geese  very
wild.     His   host,   however,   says   tbe

the geese were not as wild as his guest

Women and Snobbery
That the American women are the
greatest snobs on earth is the point
blank assertion of a woman writer in
the Chicago Tribune. More than that
she argues the matter, and from some
of her argument would seem to include
the women of the charmed circles in our
own Canadian cities.
The fear of losing caste she declares
is the obsessing fear of their lives. "Why,
I have some good friends," she declares
to whom social life is agony in the
fear that every move they make may not
be according to the rules prescribed.
"Said a charming young woman who
had left college with a string of brilliant
attainments in her wake, to teach school
in one of Chicago's newly rich suburbs:
"I can't stand it any longer. I am of
good birth, good training, good education, yet because I work���because I
have sense enough to make my own way
���they make ol me a social outcast. I
don't want their society, it isn't that,
but I'll not be patronized by overdressed,
overfed, underlrained women who ask
me ii�� make gentleman and ladies out
of their offspring, yet treat me as if I
were beneath their feet."
Dr. Anna Shaw says the American
women are the most conservative of all
their sex, and gives as her belief that the
reason therefor is this fear of losing
caste. "In the foreign countries a woman
stays where she is born, no matter what
she may do," explains Dr. Shaw.
She declares that it is the rich women
who fear lest they be crowded out l>y
women of talents who make life hard for
other women. "It is- this brand of
American woman���and with the onrush
of great fortunes she is growing as a
class so much more rapidly that any
other who endeavor to set aside all
self-supporting women."
Women As Geographer*
The twentieth century is showing
many new avenues for women to follow. The wife of the celebrated Arctic
discoverer, Peary, is a woman who
dared to meet the climate and spend
a winter in the Arctic regions. A Canadian woman of the west, Agnes
Dean* Cameron, in six months passed
over a journey of ten thousand miles:
but even her record has been surpassed by the wife of an American engineer, Mansfield, who made a journey
from the Cape of Good Hope through
the continent of Africa to Cairo, a distance of 16,728 miles, in seven months
and this she did without being accompanied by a single white person.
She travelled many hundred miles on
foot or in a hammock fastened to a
pole which was carried by natives.
The natives were greatly attracted by
her and were disposed lo give her almost higher than human honors. But
it is to be remembered lhat this traveller was preceded by Lady Baker
through central Africa and by Miss
Kingsley, niece of the canon, who with
a small body-guard of natives, entered
upon the dangerous gorilla country of
western Africa. This lady ran the
i risk of being eaten by cannibals.
A very rich lady, Mrs. F. Sheldon,
went around lhe world when she was
only sixteen and afterwards did the
same thing on two occasions, and
' then gained a great name by her explorations in Africa. She is the first
lady appointed to be a member of the
Royal Geographical society. She even
exceeded Stanley in her African jour-
neyings. and entered into the study of
African folk-lore by joining the terrible
blood brotherhood of a number of the
fiercest African tribes.
What Women Are,Doing
Miss Belle Honan, one of Irelands
wealthy women, has given $50,000 to
Cork University to establish free scholarships.
The New Jersey Federation of Women's Clubs will establish a housekeeping station, where all the new aids
to housekeeping will be tried in the
demonstration kitchen, and those worth
while will be recommended.

Four young women won the city scholarships in Philadelphia for the University
of Pennsylvania, and as it happened
they were all the women who applied
for them. That speaks well for the
girls, and is only another instance of the
success that women have when they
compete in the schools with men.
A bill wi'l be intruduced into the
Wisconsin Legislature asking for votes
for unmarried women, for widows having property and for women having a
college degree, and the Milwaukee Suffrage Association will advocate it.
They believe it is best to begin with
modest demands and that unlimited
suffrage may come later.
For the Housekeeper
Match marks may be removed from
white paint by rubbing with cut lemon.
To forestall further marring smear the
spot lightly with vaseline.
When cooking cabbage, the unpleasant
odor may be avoided if a piece of charcoal, stale bread or a tiny bit or baking
soda is added to thc water.
Rust on steel can be removed by rubbing sweet oil well into the surface. Let
it stand two days; then rub the steel
with unslaked lime until surface is clean.
To mend a sifter or sieve that has a
hole in it, use a large needle and coarse
thread and darn back and forth across
the hole as one would dam a stocking.
Fish that is to be broiled or fried will
be enriched in flavor if it is spread well
with olive oil and lemon juice and allowed
to stand for at least an hour before
cooking.

THE HONOR OF THE COURT AT STAKE
With the publication of the leading article in last Saturday's "Empire"���one
of the most amazing utterances in the history of Canadian journalism���an issue,
petty in itself has been made the occasion to perpetrate a grave contempt on the
judiciary of British Columbia.
The issue is no longer a question of whether a petty account for printing is
correct or not. It is now the honor of the courts of British Columbia that is at stake.
What ste|>s His Honor Judge Young or the Attorney-General will take to vindicate
the dignity of the court and punish the perpetrator of so grave and deliberate a
contempt, is awaited with interest by the people.
That the contempt was deliberate and uncalled for is evidenced by the writer's
own admissions.
The facts of the case according to his own statement are, that following a
dispute with the city authorities over a bill for printing, the writer of the article
instructed his solicitors to issue a writ against the city. By his own action he
appealed to the arbitration of the court.
It is common knowledge even to the schoolboy, that during the period that an
action is before the court pending a hearing it is improper und contemptuous to
make nny public comment upon it. Certainly the law that prevents comments
upon matters which are sub judice is well known to every journalist.
But not content to await a fair trial of the issue before the courts, the writer
of the article referred to, has seen fit to issue to the public a lengthy statement,
calculated to inllume the public mind, and subvert the ends of justice.
The writer of the article well knew that no court would permit him to use
an action over a trumpery printing account, as a means of delivering a slanderous
attack against any individual member of the Council. Was this the reason why
the article was penned?
If a slander is such that no judge would permit it to be uttered in open court
where the accused iKTson would have the opportunity of reply and cross-examination, how much more heinous an offence is it to utter that slander in the columns
of a newspaper where the accused person has no opportunity of reply.
Thus to make of an editorial column a "cowards' castle," is a degrading of
one of the noblest and most useful of professions.
Unless the courts and public opinion step in and make such reprehensible
i onduct impossible, it means that any man may buy some wretched sheet and
so minded straightway embark in business as a professional blackmailer.
Such conduct is the more wicked, because any journal well-informed as to the
eal facts of the case may not print a defence of a person slandered under such
circumstances, without itself coming under the law.
Fortunately the courts in our sister-provinces have repeatedly vindicated their
dignity under such circumstances.
The eyes of the people of Prince Rupert are now turned to see what action
our courts will take in the present case.
At lust our contemporary has revealed the cause of its complaint. It is angry
with the City Council for not paying what the Council apparently believes is an
exorbitant   bill.   Is this the journal that aspires to sway public opinion?
Perhaps the gifted editor of the Charlottetown Guardian, (Prince Edward
Island) who recently made the brilliunt suggestion that Canada annex the state
of Maine, will oblige by telling us hew to go about it.
The latest gentleman to be appointed, by rumor, to the post of High Commissioner of Canada in London is Sir Hugh Graham. While Sir Hugh would make an
excellent High Commissioner, Lord Slrathcona seems to be very much alive and
capable. One of his most recent acts was to donate an additional sum of $600,000
to the Struthcona trust fund for teaching physical culture and military drill to the
school boys of Canada.

FINE RESIDENTIAL FLATS
New    Clapp    Building    Now    Being
Occupied
The problem of housing in the rapidly
growing city of Prince Rupert, is being
met in many ways from the erection
of the humble shack to the building of
the most imposing residences. The
system of flat residence is likely to become very popular in this city especially
when flat residences are made as attractive as those in the fine new Clapp
Building just being opened up for
occupiers by the Westenhaver Bros.
The building itself is a handsome and
substantial frame structure. The ground
floor consists of a splendidly spacious
store on each side of the entrance
stairway. These stores have roomy
basements equal in size to the stores
themselves well built and lofty. One
of them is already occupied by the
enterprising firm of Stalker & Wells,
whose fine stock of groceries and provisions looks particularly appetizing.
The flats above are far more roomy and
airy than most one story dwellings.
Each flat has spacious recaption and
living rooms, bedrooms bathroom and
kitchen fitted with all conveniences,
including oue of the most up-to-date
cook stoves. The windows command
magnificent views, and there is a wide
veranda at the back of each flat, roomy,
yet perfectly secluded. Already these
flats are being rapidly let, their convenience and comfort attracted early
enquiry.

CLOTHING PROBLEM
Is   Solved   by   Sloan   &   Company's
Suit Clubs Open to All*
All men are interested in the problem
of clothing and to most men it is a
continual source of worry to get the
next suit so as to be sure of satisfaction.
The solution of the problem ia in
joining one of Sloan & Company's Suit
Clubs where you not only get your
clothing by an easy method, but at the
same time assure yourself that you
are getting the very best clothing made
in Canada today.   See their plan.        It
HOSPITAL VARIETY SHOWER
Arranged   by   Miss   Angus   Stewart
When New Matron Meets Ladies
Miss Kate McTavish, the newly appointed matron of the Prince Rupert
General Hospital, is at present in the
city. In order that she may have an
opportunity of meeting the ladies of
the Hospital Auxiliary and all interested
in the work of the hospital Mrs. Angus
Stewart has arranged that on Thursday
24th, she will hold at her home a reception and variety shower for the
hospital between the hours of 3:30 and
5:30 p.m.
The Matron will be present and all
ladies desirous of meeting her and of
helping along the hospital by contributions to the variety shower will be
welcomed as Mrs. Stewart's guests.
Mrs. Stewart's plan at first was to
hold merely a linen shower, but by
extending this to a variety shower for
which all sorts of articles likely to be
useful to the hospital are eligible, it is
hoped that the cause will be still more
largely helped.

Hundred Thousand to Be Spent Remodelling Sawmill���Director Regards Prince Rupert as City With
a Wonderful Future.
Vancouver, Nov. 14.���Operations at
the big pulp mill at Swanson Bay, over
400 miles up the coast, are to bc resumed
shortly. Improvements to the plant
are now being completed. In addition
$100,000 will be expended at once in
remodelling the company's sawmill there.
The proposition is owned by British
capital. The original company was
recently reorganized under the title of
the Swanson Bay Forests, Wood Pulp
and Lumber Mills, Ltd., with a capitalization of $3,000,000.
A party of directors returned yesterday from an inspection trip to Swanson Bay. Its members comprised Mr.
W. Maclachlan, chairman, London, Eng.,
Mr. J. W. Robson, Newcastle-on-Tyne;
Mr. W. Mackarell, resident Canadian
director, Ottawa, and the manager, Mr.
James Wood.
Under the recent re-organization the
capital consists of 300,000 pounds of
debentures and 300,000 in shares. The
entire issue was mainly underwritten
by private individuals connected with
the London Stock Exchange. The
visiting directors are well satisfied with
the outlook for the company after their
visit to the plant, siad Mr. Robson in an
recent interview.
"New screens are being installed,
and operations will be resumed within
a   few   weeks,"   he   continued.     "The
output will total about 7000 tons of
: sulphite pulp  a year.    The company
j recently shipped 500 tons to San Francisco.    The quality of spruce on  our
1 limits enables us to make a pulp which
is   equal  to   the   product   of   Eastern
��� Canada and Scandinavia.   All the shipments made to Japan and other markets
: have   satisfied   our   customers.     The
company owns nearly 90,000 acres of
spruce forest with a good percentage of
merchantable timber.
"We are now remodelling our sawmill at a cost of about $100,000. The
new plant will consist of an Allis-
Chalmers band mill and a Mercham
resaw as well as other machinery,
and when completed the plant will
be one of the most eomplete in the
province with a daily rapacity of over
80,000 feet. The limits are located on
tidewater, ensuring easy and economical
logging operations.'"
More Capital for Province
Mr. Robson intimated that members of the party are also looking over
the field here with a view to making
other investments. He expressed amazement at the great growth of Prince
Rupert since his visit there a year ago.
He regards it as a city with a wonderful
future. In his opinion the proximity of
the fishing banks would alone ensure the
building up of a big industry and a
large center. He looked for still more
rapid development with the advent of
railway communication across the Rockies.

WHALING AND
ITS BIG PROFITS
TEN   WHALES   PER   MONTH    IS
GOOD BUSINESS
Mackenzie and Mann Will Greatly
Extend Scope of Industry���Will
Have One New Station at or near
Thi* City.
Victoria, Nov. IS.���Whaling is destined to be one of the big industries of
the North Pacific Coast. The romance
clings no longer to the business; and
the profits are larger; one firm which
took 580 whales and had $96,478 profit,
has since doubled its scope and will
take at least 1,100 whales this year and
have not less than $200,000 profit.
Future developmentments are to be
made upon a large scale. Messrs.
William Mackenzie and D. D. Mann,
respectively president and vice-president
of the Canadian Northern railway, and
who have during recent months become
financially interested to the extent of
millions of dollars in the coal and copper
mines and lumber industry of British
Columbia, have bought out the Pacific
Whaling company and have a big scheme
for enlarging ita operations. Shark-
fishing and halibut-fishing will be side
lines.
In 1907 the Kyuquot station was
built, practically a replica of the station at Sechart, but it has the advantage
of being nearer to the ocean. The cost
of each of these stations was $85,000. A
third station was built at Page's Lagoon,
near Nanaimo, from which the whalers
were operated for a time during the
winter months in the Gulf of Georgia,
but the work there was not as satisfactory as out on the open sea and the
station at Page's Lagoon has been dismantled. In 1910 the Rose harbor
station was constructed at the southerly
extreme of the Queen Charlotte group.
One company pays a fee of $900 yearly
to the Dominion Government. Two
licenses for illations on the northern
coast of British Columbia have been
held since 1907, and an effort made in
1908 by a Norwegian syndicate to secure a station on Valvert Island off the
northern British Columbia Coast, failed.
The Ottawa Government refused a
license to the concern, stating that its
policy was to give licenses only at the
rate of one in every hundred miles of
coastline, and the coastline is pretty
well taken up.
In 1910 the Pacific Whaling Company increased its capital to $1000.000,
and under the new ownership of Messrs.
Mackenzie and Mann the capital is to
be further increased to probably four
times that amount. Since its establishment the industry has been a most
remunerative one. In 1907 the work
paid the stockholders a dividend of
14 per cent on preferred and 7 per cent
on the common stock and the following
year the shareholders received 18 pef
cent on preferred and 11 pes cent on
common itock. The dividends next
year are expected to be much larger,
thc catch being anticipated as over
double that of the preceding year.
To make the business pay a catch
of ten whales |>er month would be sufficient; the roast whalers of Vancouver
< Island think ten none too good an
average for a week's work. The steam
whaler Orion has brought in as many
as eight in one day. Daily the steamers
come back at nightfall with four or five
mammals moored alongside of them.

secret service agents and officials of the
immigration department here are looking
for a large number of Chinese who have
recently been smuggled into Canada.
At the labor convention held at Fort
William, Out.. the sensational statement
was made that thousands of Chinese are
annually being smuggled into this country.
The traffic is said to be a most profitable one, and as high as $300 each is
being paid for successful entry into the
Dominion. In recent years the government agents have kept so close a watch
upon the United States border that
it is almost impossible to land the
Chinamen in Canadian territory without detection. Now, however, since
the automobile has come into almost
universal use it is authoritatively stated
that the celestials are dressed up as
women and under the guise of "joy
riders" are successfully shot across the
international boundary.
After landing safely and  joining  one
of the tongs the newly arrived China-
i man is given proper clothing and em-

Appeal Court Reserve* Decision in
Suit Brought by Promoter Frewen
to Upset Verdict Given to President
Hays Regarding Townsite Lots.
from seventy to eighty dollars a foot.
Down in the business section a corner
lot was recently sold for $26,000. Graft
Hill commands perhaps the most magnificent view of any residential section
of any city on earth. To the north
and west are the deep forests of almost
indescribable greens, kept in a state of
perpetual freshness by the moist atmosphere. Then to the south are the
snow-capped mountains, dazzlingly
beauiful! in their eternal greatness.
Vancouver, Nov. 18 ���"Smithers is a
bore."
This was the reference in the correspondence between Mr. Moreton Frewen
and Mr. C. M. Hays, by the former to
the then vice-president of the Grand
Trunk railway, now chairman of the
board. It was read this morning in
the Appeal Court in the appeal brought
by Mr. Fewren for a reversal of the
judgment of Chief Justice Hunter, dismissing his claim for specific performance on the part of the Grand Trunk
railway of an agreement to sell him 1000
lots in Prince Rupert townsite, or, in
the alternative, pay damages running
up to half a million dollars.
The agreement is contained in letters
passing between Mr. Frewen und Mr.
Hays, now president of the Grand
Trunk, general manager when the negotiations opened, und there is that candor, refreshing or otherwise, about certain of the latter* which uttnehes to
communications which it is expected
will never be read in public.
One of the letters refers to an editorial
which Mr. Frewen is to write for the
San Francisco Chronicle about Grand
Trunk securities, and Prince Rupert
townsite, which will be later reproduced
in London, and coming from such a distant center, will wear the appearance of
being impartial.
In another leticr he says the newspapers approach him for news, and
i he tulks of I'rince Rupert, from which
he hus returned.
This publicity work, it is claimed, is
part of the original agreement by which
he is to interest capital in the townsite.
Thc whole case turns on whether the
letters contain a complete agreement,
whether the plaintiff is not burred by
the Statute of Frauds, because the letters left the prices of lots to be fixed
and the selection lo bc made, and was,
therefore, not a complete agreement.
The plaintiff relies on a letter in which
Mr. Hays says that the prices will be
fixed by their officials as soon as their
survey was complete, and the prices
charged him would be at least no higher
than the public will be asked to pay.
He contends that this means the reserve prices set on the lots at the Vancouver auction, not thc prices the public
puid, and at which 1000 lots, not of his
selection, were offered to him.

Latham through Angus Beaton. They
have the same general high character
of ore as the American Boy on which
the Harris Brothers are working four
men.
The Hazelton district has been going
ahead without much of a "hurrah,"
proving up the ore in a miner-like manner. Those who have pinned their
faith on suggestions from engineers,
prospectors and miners are now commencing to feel that they will be handsomely rewarded. With the Lead
King, Silver Cup, American Boy and
American Girl on Nine Mile mountain,
several unincorporated groups producing
on Hudson Bay mountain, Telkwa and
the head of Copper river, besides the
producers at Stewart and vicinity, all
tributary to Rupert, it is now confidently
expected that Prince Rupert will have
a smeller here in the near future.
The local firms who have been handling
Lead King and Silver Cup state that
there has been quite a big demand for
stock in the past two weeks.
