previous to 1902.
Up at Seal Cove yesterday afternoon
a baiTOW load of concrete was poured
into a long stretch of wooden frame
work. It wits a simple operation yet
it marked an epoch in the history ol
I'rince Rupert antl of Canada, for it
meant that the first concrete hail been
planted lor the foundation of the largi*t
and most up to date cold storage and
freezing plant in tho world.
To witness this Interesting ceremony,

of the ciiy council, olher visitors antl
newspaper men were invited hy Mr.
George L. Clayton, the architect and
engineer for the Canadian Kish and
(old Storage I '���., of British t ulumbiu,
the company that is building the plant.
Hy March l!>lli this gigantic concern
will he ready for business. And what
a bin business it will he and what a
good thing it will mean for the city. Ten
million pounds of lish can he stored
iu that building wiih a 1,200 feet frontage. Fifty tons of lish can bo frozen
every day. Twenty-live tons of ice
can be manufactured every day. The
cost of equipping and building th'
plant will he over *:|50,UU0.
Local Waters Will Supply Fish
There are enough lish in the waters
at the very di or of the plant to supply
the cities of a dozen continents. The
company's own fleet of boats will
harvest the waters. Individual li.-her-
men will lind a market there for their
catches, providing these individuals are
while men antl Indians. Japs are barred
from ihe market. The plant will give
employment to aliout 500 people.

When   thi'-   business   is   working   it
means   that   lish   will   be   put   on   the

days its they have to go such long

Valuable china requires special treatment to be safely washed. Try this way.
A wooden tub should be lined with a
soft cloth, pearl ash dissolved in warm
water, and the best antique cups and
saucers, vases and plates washed carefully in it.
A pastry* brush should always be
kept, with which to work out .dust which
has collected in the crevices of china
figures, while, after draining the china
on a wooden board it is dried with a
soft cloth and then polished with a silk
handkerchief.
Putty to clean antique glass and wet
whiting for pewter are two other secrets
of a successful cleaning day.
For the insides of decanters and
bottles nothing is better than to soap
small pieces of blotting paper and fill
each bottle with them, adding water to
reach half way up, and then shake energetically until the contents froth.

TO   MAKE   GOOD   SERVANTS
, Women   of   United   States   Suggest
College Training Plan
What do you think of the plan started
by the New Jersey Women's Progressive
League to solve the servant girl problem?
The  plan  proposes  to  provide  better
| servants   by  establishing  training  and
��� cooking schools in the cities of the state.
The   students   will   be   taught   every
I branch of housework.   The plan also in-
. eludes the organization of classes  for
j practical instruction to housewives.
Under the proposed system, sen-ants
I would be properly classified, and upon
I graduation will receive diplomas that
I will express their qualifications. The
j curriculum will provide the foUowing
{classes:
Special butlers' and waitresses' courses
I cooks' practical classes, early fall course
! in pickling and preserving, chafing
dish course, camp cooking course, lectures on the individual consumption of
food, purchasing and kitchen bookkeeping.
SLEVES UP TO DATE
Parisian   Expert  Suggests   Improvements in This Season's Styles
Sleeves continue to follow the present ]
lines. That is, bodice and sleeve are
cut all in one, without a seam at the
armhole. This fashion lends itself
charmingly to the present manner of
trimming in long lines, and the bodices
this season are prettier and more youthful than seen in many years. However,
one cannot say the (tame for the lower
edge of the sleeve. Never was anything
uglier than the present style, that is
neither short enough to display the curve
of the forearm nor long enough to reach
the waist. The absolutely loose, un-
gathered sleeve end hangs half way
between elbow and hand in a meaningless
manner, as if the dresjmaker had
forgotten to do something with it.
IF HANDED A LEMON
Simply Smile and Put It to Work at
Once
Fruit-stained hands become white
and soft when washed with lemon juice.
To remove rust, ink, and mildew marks
from white garments, nothing is better
than salt and the juice of a lemon.
Moisten the salt with the juice and
spread over the slain; allow it to remain
on for a short time, and if necessary,
THE LITTLE DOUGHNUT PIG
Of all the fond amusements
Of my childhood days, I know
That none were more enjoyable
Than the menagerie of dough.
The animals were very' tame,
And never very big;
But the favorite of all,
Was the little doughnut pig.
Oh, that little doughnut pig
Was not so very big:
But   he   was   fat   and    plump   and
sweet,
And oh, so very good to eat
His eyes were made of allspice,
And his tail of twisted defugh,
His ears were quite ungainly,
And his legs were thus and so.
But when all fried and nicely dried,
And sugared o'er and o'er,
Those funny ears and legs
Endeared him more and more".
Oh, that little doughnut pig
Was not so very' big:
But   he   was   fat   and   plump   and
sweet,
And oh, so very good to eat

With a little man at the helm with
a complexion that the winds of several
seas had kissed and made as brown
as a ripe filbert the steamer Sebastian,
a trim little whaler nosed into port
here this morning. The man at the
helm was Captain Andersen. The
Sebastian is one of the Canadian Northern Railway's whaling boats, but just
now she is on a vacation as her skipper
calls it. She is loitering around the
waters of the B. C. coast to protect the
fisheries fro the Dominion Government.
She came in here for supplies. In a few
weeks' time the Sebastian will go
chasing whales again
About half past seven o'clock this
morning loud reports were heard on
First avenue opposite the Knox Hotel.
A powder shack caught fire and some
powder caps were exploding. Fortunately there was nn powder in the
place. The fire department soon put
the blaze out.

WOULD ISSUE LICENSES
TO MEN WHO DRINK
Toronto Preacher, Rev. G. M. Brewin, Hits on a Novel
Suggestion to Solve the "Indian List" Problem
���"A Sin pie Scheme, but-"
fit, and could also prohibit its renewal.
A ch;.rKe of fifty cents or a dollar could
be made for the license, antl this woultl
bring in no small revenue, ar.d that, too,
from the consumer und not thrtmuli
any middle man. An age limit could
be set to purchasers of licenses, antl the
pld principle of an Indian list could
be maintained by enabling friends and
relatives under existing conditions to
have a license refused.
A novel suggest ion has just been
made by a Toronto minister, Rev. G. M.
Brewin, The proposal is ihat no man
should be entitled to purchase liquor
Bt a bar unless he has lirst secured a
license to drink.
His idea is that fit and proper persons
should be furnished with a card certificate to be produced when ordering a
drink.
Rev. Mr.  Brewin'a Idea
He says: "If a man wishes to use
litiuor make him obtain a license to do
so. This license woultl take (he form of a
small plate or card and be good for
one year. A man going into a bar
would have to show his license before
he coultl be served.
"If a man is summoned for drunkenness the Magistrate could suspend
his  license  for such   lime  as  he  saw
A Simple Scheme, But���
"It is a simple scheme, but with
many self-evident advantages. Like
till laws, it could be evaded, but its
evasion would not be so eas,- as that
Of the present laws.
"We do not know t hut il has ever
been tried in any country; apparently
it ha.; not been suggested I eforc."

the old Health liy-law did not clcarrj
distinguish stables for horses frmii
cattle-aheds, and difficult** arose accordingly. The new clause woultl leave
the question of stable building < r
occupancy of stables entirely in Unhands of the council who coultl allow or
forbid such premises to be built or
usetl any where within ciiy limits alter
consideration.
This clause Aldermun Morrissey read
in the spirit of obstruction to the cr-
iciinn of stables in the city at all, and
he thought hardship would be caused
transfer people by it. Alderman Smuh
explained that the clause left the matter
lo the discretion of the council, and
Alderman Hilditch remarked that wheth-
vi he Wen u stable owner or a resilient
inconvenienced by the proximity of
a stable, he would naturally look to
the council for a square ileal.
Alderman Kerr called attention to
an old case of a stable built under
the old council which is within a font
or so of dwellings. The new by-law will
effect this posi!inn. The by-law was
read for the third time.

The Fruit-Growers' Turn at Last
After having been held up as the one ewe lamb of the anti-reciprocity party
in Canada, it seems unkind of the fruit growers to jump over the traces. Yet such
is the situation in the Niagara district, and for reasons which apply equally to the
fruit growers of British Columbia.
It has dawned on the Niagara fruit growers that for forty years they have
been taking produce to the American market in face cf the tariff, and never a load j
of American produce has come into their territory save in the case of early fruits
which ripen before the Niagara fruit. In those forty years they have paid uncountable sums in tolls, the American buyers patrolling the county of Welland on the
lookout for fruits and vegetables.
Under the satirical heading of "The suffering will be general," Mr. E. Morden,
proprietor of the Niagara Falls Nurseries, and one of the largest growers of choice
fruits and nursery stock, has published a circular from which we cull the following
sentences:
"The Southern grower, with the increased demand, will suffer from overwork and increased Bank Deposits.
"The Southern consumer will lie tempted to consume a much greater variety
of Fruits and Vegetables for a much longer jieriod than heretofore.
"The Canadian grower, under the stress of a greatly increased demand, will
bc forced to employ more labor to produce more Fruit and more Vegetables to
reach Many Millions on a sure market where there is no local competition, and
where the City man and the Country man are alike benefitted.
"The Canadian consumer, while privileged to enjoy locally-grown fresh fruits
and vegetables to the fullest extent, will also be enabled to secure, at economical
rates, early Fruits and Vegetables, much in advance of the local supply."

The C. P. R. Company will build a big hotel in Toronto. Another mark
of disbelief in the blue ruin predictions of the opponents of reciprocity.
A telegram sent to Toronto by Sir Wilfrid Laurier reads as follows: "We
have not hurt the manufacturer, and we will not do so. We have benefitted the
farmet and the consumer. When the time comes we will sweep the country from
the Atlantic to the Pacific." There is optimism for you. A spirit such as that
spells success.
An "ami-knocking" club has been formed in Trenton, N. J. Its object is
as might be supposed, to oppose knocking individuals, for among the resolutions
is one that no member will ever say anything about any person of an injurious
nature, whether true or untrue. This is pretty far-reaching. The method of
keeping the members faithful to their pledges is by a fine of $5 for the first offence
if a satisfactory explanation is not furnished, $10 for the second offence, and expul
sion for the third.

MOLTEN   METAL   EXPLODES
Five

Sorel. April 5. ���By the explosion of

Three of them are not expected to
recover.
Do you realize that every train of the
G. T. P. R. R. will be ��� a flying advertisement for our city? The letters
stand for "Go To Prince Rupert Road"
-that's plain. The Grand Trunk chose
its name well and we are duly grateful. Just now the Grand Trunk is
making Prince Rupert but it will not be
long before Prince Rupert will make
thc Grand Trunk Pacific.
A modern railroad is a wonderful institution. Railroad building today is
not a gamble, it is a science. A railroad that would just make a town its
terminus just for the sake of making a
town would be committing suicide. It
would be flirting with the undertaker,
as my friend Sheriff Small used to say
back in Missouri. A railroad chooses
its terminus for the trade it can get
there, for the freight it can bring there
and take away from there. So you sec
thc railroad knew exactly what it was
doing when it chose Prince Rupert.
We Know that many excellent engineers, many of the ablest business men,
many largo capitalists compose the
railroad, and we know that their collective judgment must be good or they
would not be able engineers, able business men or able capitalists. They
selected Prince Rupert. You or I cannot have better judgment in the matter
than they did. That's our cue to profit
by their judgment. Stick with Prince
Rupert and tell your friends about it.
If you don't know what to tell them
about Prince Rupert ask me and I'll
tell you what to say. Also I shall give
you my book of Questions and Answers
on Prince Rupert. You can either send
that or copy it. It is easier to Bend it
or I'll send it for you. If vou and I
keep on getting busy with telling the
outsiders about Prince Rupert, it will
not be long before we will nave twenty-
five thousand inhabitants, then fifty
and then my prophecy, "The San Francisco of Canada.

OF OUR HARBOR
DISTINGUISHED WRITER OF ECONOMICS IS INTERESTED
Prof. Lecarpenter of Paris to Contribute an Article on Prince Rupert Harbor to the European
Review of International Economics
Into the highways and byways of
the world the fame of  I'rince  Rupert
as the greatest and  most important
gateway to Canada is becoming known.
Yesterday Mr. A. J. Morris, president
of the Hoard of Trade of this city, received a letter from Mr. ti. Lecarpi -ntier,
M. A��� of Paris, France, and professor
in economics.
The letter reads:
"Dear Sir, -I have just completed
an article on Canadian Porta of Commerce On the Atlantic Seaboard for the
European Review of International Economics, The same publication wants
an article on Canadian Ports of Commerce on the l'acilic Ocean. For this
purpose 1 shall be glad lo be furnished
with Information and statistics of the
port of I'rince Kupert. I should like
to get all the commercial and navigation
statistics possible with a map of the
harbor, list of dues, etc. I shall receive
any Information With pleasure."
Mr. Morris is going to send at once
what Mr. Lecurpeiitier desires.
Then' is no doubt that an article
about I'rince Rupert In such an important and widely read publication
as the Review of International Economics will be one of the best advertisements the city can get.
It may bu rather surprising to many
citizens to know that last year over
2,000 steamships called here, many
of them of Iarj;e tonnage.

Cannons to ihe rinht of 'em, cannons
to lhe left of 'em, cannons all around 'em.
And these cannons volleyed and thundered like the cannons did on old Balaclava Hill in '56. And this happened
right in the very heart of the city last
n&ht.
No; it Wiisn't a war, it was merely
a contingent of billiard players in the
Wanderers' club trying to wrestle the
trophy from a contingent of players
from the I'rince Ku|x-rt club. Last
night's game was the first half of ihe
regular monthly wrestle. The Wanderers came out ahead due in pait to
the skill of the redoubtable "BQl Oasey.
lie held Ihe cue as successfully as
the immortal Casey of baseball fame
held the bat. The curtain went down
at 1.15 a.m. this morning with a scure
of ~2S for the Wanderers and 715
for the I'rince Kupert aggregation.
(!. K. Naden proved lhe stroni; man
for the I'. K. team. His Ioiik soil is
pot shotting. And there's some science
about Naden so the wiseacres avow.
He and C. A. Vaughan were pitied
against each oilier.

partners in business. They were rivals
at play last night, You can't keep

on his success by a ildebet. The game

The Fruit-Growers' Turn at Last
After having been held up as the one ewe lamb of the anti-reciprocity party
in Canada, it seems unkind of the fruit growers to jump over the traces. Yet such
is the situation in the Niagara district, and for reasons which apply equally to the
fruit growers of British Columbia.
It has dawned on the Niagara fruit growers that for forty years they have
been taking produce to the American market in face of the tariff, and never a load
of American produce has come into their territory save in the case of early fruits
which ripen before the Niagara fruit. In those forty years they have paid uncountable sums in tolls, the American buyers patrolling the county of Welland on the
lookout for fruits and vegetables.
Under the satirical heading of "The suffering will be general," Mr. E. Morden,
proprietor of the Niagara Falls Nurseries, and one of the largest growers of choice
fruits and nursery stock, has published a circular from which we cull the following
sentences:
"The Southern grower, with the increased demand, will suffer from overwork and increased Bank Deposits.
"The Southern consumer will be tempted to consume a much greater variety
of Fruits nnd Vegetables for a much longer period than heretofore.
"The Canadian grower, under the stress of a greatly increased demand, will
be forced to employ more labor to produce more Fruit and more Vegetables to
reach Many Millions on a sure market where there is no local competition, and
where the City man and the Country man aro alike benefitted.
"The Canadian consumer, while privileged to enjoy locally-grown fresh fruits
and vegetables to the fullest extent, will also be enabled to secure, at economical
rates, early Fruits and Vegetables, much in advance of the local supply."
Notes and Comments
The C. P. R. Company will build a big hotel in Toronto. Another mark
of disbelief in the blue ruin predictions of the opponents of reciprocity.
A telegram sent to Toronto by Sir Wilfrid Laurier reads as follows: "We
have not hurt the manufacturer, and we will not do so. Wc have benefitted the
farmet and the consumer. When tho lime comes we will sweep thc country from
the Atlantic to the Pacific." There is optimism for you. A spirit such as that
spells success.
An "ami-knocking" club has been formed in Trenton, N. J. Ita object is
as might be supposed, to oppose knocking individuals, for among the resolutions
is one that no meml>cr will ever say anything about any person of an injurious
nature, whether true or untrue. This is pretty far-reaching. The method of
keeping the members faithful to their pledges is by a fine of $5 for the first offence
if a satisfactory explanation is not furnished, $10 for the second offence, and expulsion for the third.

DAILY MESSAGES FROM
"UNCLE JERRY"
No. 25
Do you realize that every train of the
G. T. P. K. R. will be ' n flying advertisement for our city? The letters
stand for "Go To Prince Rupert Road"
that's plain. The Grand Trunk chose
its name well and we nre duly grateful. Just now the Grand Trunk is
making Prince Rupert but it will not be
long before Prince Rupert will make
the Grand Trunk Pacific.
A modern railroad iB a wonderful institution. Railroad building today is
not a gamble, it is a science. A railroad that would just make a town its
terminus just for the sake of making a
town woultl bc committing suicide. It.
would be flirting with the undertaker,
as my friend Sheriff Small used to say
back in Missouri. A railroad chooses
its terminus for the trade it can get
there, for the freight it can bring there
and take away from there. So you see
the railroad knew exactly what it waa
doing when it chose Prince Rupert.
We know that ninny excellent engineers, many of the nblest business men,
many large capitalists compose the
railroad, and we know thnt their collective judgment must be good or they
would not be able engineers, able business men or able capitalists. They
selected Prince Ruuert. You or I cannot havo better judgment in the matter
than they did. That's our cue to profit
by their judgment. Stick with Prince
Rupert anil tell your friends about it.
If you don't know what to tell them
about Prince Rupert ask me and I'll
tell you what to say. Also I shall give
you my book of questions and Answers
on I tinea Rupert. You can either send
that or copy it. It is easier to send it
or I II semi it f���r you. If you and I
keep on getting busy with telling the
outsiders aliout Prince Rupert, it will
not be long before we will have twenty-
live thousand Inhabitants, then fifty
and then my prophecy, "The San Francisco of Canada. '

"Men arc so inconsistent " exclaimed
Mrs. Flimgilt.
"I suppose you ure talking about your
husband?"
"Yes. He complains constantly about
the extravagant sums women spend for
clothes. So I persuaded him to go to see
one of those barefoot dancers, and he
didn't approve of her at all."
"I see you are receiving attentions
from a young doctor."
"Yes; but papa ruined everything last
night."
"In what way?"
"Just ils the doctor was pleading for a
peep at my eyes, papa came in and
asked him to take a look at my tonsils."
'T made a great hit at the banquet
last night. Came cfT with a good deal of
distinction, in fact."
"I didn't knew you ever spoke at

"I don't. I was the only one there
who absolutely declined."

good for three weeks yet.
Frank Joquin, manuger for the Kus-
kokwim Commercial Company at Ta-

the other night, eleven days on Ihe truil
from Taconta. This breaks ull previous
records for the distance by three days.
They brought $30,500 worth of dust

near Georgetown, is looking line. The
country is very prosperous and the
outlook for a good season is very bright.

Chicken, Happy and Upper Otter Creeks.
The Chicken Creek puy is as good as

BRIGHT MIND IN
DARKEST DESPOND
WELL   KNOWN   WINNIPEG   LAWYER ATTEMPTS SUICIDE
Clever Man and Keen Politician
Dogged by Drink Demon Deapaira
and Deairea Death but Haa a Chance of Life.
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, April 5.���Today Edward
Fisher, a well known laywer and keen
politician of this city, lies at St. Bcni-
tace Hospital in a critical condition
with his throat gashed from ear to ear.
He inflicted the wound himself with I
safety razor.
Fisher was a patient in the hospital
befcre he made the attempt on his life.
Iu- had been undergoing treatment for
delirium tremens and was appeamtly
making a fair show at Improvement.
But the demon of despond got a grip
of him, and securing the safety razor
he tried in determined manner u> end
his life. At the time of wiring he had
a bare chance of recovery.
ANGLE FIRE DID
$1500 DAMAGE
MAX   HEILBRONER   LOSES   ALL
HIS HOUSEHOLD GOODS
Water Waa Plentiful. Brigade Saved
Building but no Furniture. Insurance on Building Only. Valuable Indian curios Lost.      _
Fortunately the fire which caught
William Angle's large house on Fulton
street yesterday evening, was checked
soon after the outbreak, otherwise
several buildings near Mr. Angle's
would have gone up. Unfortunately
;he blaze was not put out before it
had destroyed the top rooms cf the
building in 'which resided Mr. Max
Heilbroner with his wife and child.
About $1000 worth of Mr. Heilbron?r's
furniture and property is destroyed, and
not a cent of insurance existed on it.
Four hundred dollars worth cf Indian
curios from the North wire all ashes or
sodden and blackened pulp with the
clothes and furniture.
Frozen pipes really started the trouble,
for the flames sprang from a plumber's
blow lamp which ignited some oakum
Stuffing a pipe hole in the floor of Mr.
Heilbroner ��� kitchen. The plumber was
working ut the pipe from below. He
did not see the oakum until it blazed.
Then he dashed up stairs to get at the
fire from above, but found that the
Heilbroners were all oul and their
apartment! locked. Thus the fire got
loo good it start.
Mrs. Angle was at thc other end of
the upper floor. She had a key for
ihe Heilbioner's rooms, and with the
plumber did the best possible with
buckets of water. But by this lime
it wus 'u job for the brigade. The j
kitchen wus ull ablaze. Neighlrtjrs
rushed in to help, and did their best,
but by this time the Bremen were un
the job. They hud plenty of water near
al hand, und wilh the aid of long ladders
directed iwo streams into the centre
of lhe tire. Summoned ut 5 p.m. they
hud the building saved by 5.25 or so,
but were unuble to save much of Mr.
Heilbroner's furniture.
Ready help wus lent thc brigade by
u compuny of u dozen live Boy Scouts
under the direction of their seniors
Jock Dunn and Wulter Smith; and
besides doing ull ihey could to save
property many kind neighbors were
swift to offer uccommedution to the
burnt out family before the lire was
even out. To these Mr. Heilbroner
extends his thanks.
Mr. Angle, who was huving the
lower pun inn of ihe building put in
shape for first class apartments, estimates the damage to the building ai
about $500 which is coveied by insurance.
He greatly regrets the serious trouble
und loss caused his friend antl tenant
Mr. Heilbroner who is well known and
popular in the city.
Hone for the best, but be prepared
for all contingencies. Adequate Insurance will give you an added sense of
precaution. The Mock Realty Co. can
write you just the policy you need. See
them now.
MISSION YACHT
FOR B. C. COAST
LADY  MUSGRAVE  OF VICTORIA
PRESENTS TRIM CRAFT
Captain Comley Will Viait Logging
Camps on Northern Coaat-Yacht
Is Specially Designed for Work
She Will Do.
A completely equpiied mission yacht
huilt for the express purpose of visiting the ever-increasing number of logging camps up the coast is the handsome
and very practical donation of Lady
Musgrave of Victoria. This new craft,
which was completed, launched and
christened a few weeks ugo the "Governor Musgrave," left on Monday
afternoon in charge of Captain Comley
for ils future scene of activity up the
coast.
With the aid cf lhe "Governor Musgrave" to carry him from one logging
or mining camp to another, Capt. torn-
ley will undertake the work of holding
services, distributing tracts and such
other literature as is available, at the
various up-coasi Battlements, which are
as yet without uny pastor or place of
divine worship.
Realizing lhat there was a greut
field of work for an energetic missionary with a small, handy power craft
that could be handled to advantage in
the many little bays and inland chnn
nels that abound up the coast, Lady
Musgrave provided the funds some
time ago for the construction of this
craft. The "Governor Musgrave," built
at a local shipyard, is only '.'5 feet over
all in length. But she is a regular
little floating home with accommodations for four persons, although for the
greater part of the time there will be
only Cupt. Comley aboard.    The trim
little craft, built with a hunting cabin,
has her engine controls very conveniently arranged for one-man handling,
the steering wheel being nluccd at the
after end of the hunting cabin.
The "Governor MuBgrave" and her
energetic commander will cover a distriet .hat has been found too large
for the other mission ship, Columbia
II., in charge of Capt. Antle. Cupt.
Comley will keep his craft entirely up
north, having' arranged for the necessary supplies, gasoline and other stores
to be forwarded to him to Rock Bay
and other hospital und mission points
up the coast. As tho open waters of
the lower Gulf of Georgia are too exposed for such u small craft as the
"Governor Musgrave," that terriroty
will be left almost entirely to the largur
mission ship, Columbia II.
ALL PURCHASERS

LAND CLAIMS STAKED BEFORE
NEW SCALE CAME OUT ALSO
Olny Those Who Had Purchased and
Paid for Their Land Before Begin-
ninog f Provincial Fiscal Year
Have Escaped.
(Special to the Opiimist)
Victoria, April 5.���According to a
recent revision of the Land Policy all
purchasers of Provincial Lands must
pay for them at the new instead of the
old acerage scale even if the land wus
stoked previous to the beginning of the
Provincial Fiscul year. A largo number
of land stakers who had staked their
sections before the new scale was announced were hoping that the old rate
per acre would apply to them still, and
the fact that they have now to pay
twice us much for lhe land is n dis-
nppointment to them.
