\e\. Mr. Kerr Gave First of Series of Sermons on Big
Subject���Theatre Packed to Hear Him
���Explained the System
"Socialism   is   ftrsi   of   all. a
Irotcst against the wrongs which

reduced   lo  one  dead  level.    It
sloes lay lhat as a system we shall
Vol foster extremes,    It says if

This  was  the  keynote  of   the
RCrmon,   lhe   first  of   a   series  oil
|Vi i.ilisin, given last night by Rev.
Wa Kerr.    Before proceeding
I with his subject he offered an
explanation of why he had chosen
lo speak from lhe pulpit on such
-i secular subject as he classified
it- "Socialism" he said, "is hc-
(oming a religion with some people,
and, therefore, 1 feel justified in
dealing with it."
Will Have Open Discussion
Then Mr. Kerr said he had been
asked to enter into an open
discussion on the subject some
nighl in the week. This he said
he Would do and would be pleased
to answer any questions sent to
him during the week. The answers would be given on the
(ollowing Sunday.
So much interest had the announcement of tlu. M-rinon at-

cialists are a bunch of soreheads
and malcontents. This may be
true in some cases. There is
always a scum element in everything and this element stands out
as ihe most prominent and is
pointed at by people as the advocates of the system.
Socialists of Best Blood
The speaker commented on the
opinion some business men held
on Socialism. These men must
be careful about calling Socialists
soreheads, etc. "It is nol historically true that Socialists come
from the lowest strata of society.
They are born of Teuton blood,
born from thc higher, not the
lower strata.
"Socialism does not mean the
reduction or doing away with
industries or commercial enterprise. Socialism is a system of
economics thai wants all the natural productions such as land,|
timber limits, instruments of in-|
dvistry, etc., owned ami governed
by the state, instead of being
owned and governed privately."
In conclusion Mr. Kerr explained
that many of the complex questions
of the system would right themselves just as all other natural
economic laws have done when
thc system comes. The great
difficulty,, he said, of its introduction is because there would
have to bc administrators of the
system a \d these men would have
a grand chance to graft, consequently men arc unwilling tO trust
one another owing to the lure of

the spiritual standpoint t" look

workmen and contractors is ended.
At a meeting of the members of
the P. U. I. A. last night it was
decided to call a truce to all
hostilities, and on the motion of
William Fraser a resolution to
thai effect was put and unanimously carried. A letter of which
the above is a copy, was drafted
and conveyed to the Mayor this
morning, notifying him of the
men's intention, ln this lhe men
were true to their expressed principles to win or lose but accept
no compromise.
Representative Gathering
The meeting last night in tinmen's hall was a very representative assemblage. All nationalities involved were given the
opportunity of expressing their
mind on the matter, and the fact
thai the resolution embodying the
letter as above was carried unanimously goes to show that the
feeling of the strikers is well
Fraser Makes the Motion
The  initiative  in  putting   the
motion was taken by \V. Fraser,
who expressed  the feeling of  the
meeting that the Organisation should be kept going in a healthy
state, and lhal the best defence
possible should be put up for the
men who are to undergo trial.

Arrangements are being made
to carry on the work of the P. R.

Funds for Defence
Funds for the defence of the

Story of the Strike
The history of the strike which
ends today can be briefly given.
At the time of the January Municipal Election the first mention
was heard of a 45 cents per hour
wage scale for common labor.
When the council came in the
members of the P. R. 1. A. drew
attention   to   the   high   of  living
in prince Rupert', particularly for
wearing apparel for laboring men
in the ditches, etc. After considering the arguments put forward by the men the council made
an arrangement by which men in
the cily employ, all except a few
on very light work, should have
45 cents per hour.
In the street grading contracts
let to the various contractors a
minimum wage rate of 87 1'2- cents
per hour was stipulated for. The
P. R. I. A. which by this time
numbered about 1000 strong, made
a demand that the contractors
should pay the same scale as the
city. This was refused, and by a
very large majority arrived at by
secrei ballot the P. R. 1. A. members decided to strike. They
struck on March 1st.
Efforts at Settlement
Since then the dispute has been
maintained by both sidis in determined manner. Efforts made
by the city to bring the contractors in line with the 45 cent
rate resulted in nothing. Effort
made by the contractors to bring
in labor failed, tlie newcomers
frequently joining the P. R. 1. A.
Thc strikers maintained themselves by fishing, and ran a kitchen
department at their hall. When
attempts were made by the contractors to start men, lhe strikers
visited the jobs, and persuaded, or
prevented the men from working.
At Mclnnis & Kelly's cut on
First avenue the most difficulty
orccured. On one occasion a few-
workers engaged there under police
protection were practically crowded off the cut, and U. Gosden, a
member of the P. R. 1. A., was
arrested in connection with the
affair aril sent to Westminster for
a three months' term.
Finally on Thursday April (Uh,
after a big parade of the P. R. 1. A.
around the town at which all
station work was Stopped, the
Kelly contract was visited apparently as an after-thought, and a
sharp fracas occurred between lhe
pi klice and the strikers. Stones
were thrown, and revolvers used.
Several of the police and strikers
were injured,
Wound up the Strike
Thai nighl fifty members of
the P. R. 1. A. were arrested, and
held in custody. The P. U. I. A.
Hall was taken charge of by the
police, and the Association almost
entirely disorganised.    Re-organ*
isalion efforts were begun partly
by the Longshoremen's I nioii.
and after various meetings ami
mass meetings in the cause of
labor, the result announced today
has been attained.

Tonight when the Council meets it is to still further consider
thu question of how liesi to exterminate the rats.  This is a Imk question
aiuljmuy easily become -i bigger,   The damage to crops and mer-
chandise^done by rats in England alone last year has been estimated
at $85,000,000���much mon.' than a king's ransom.  To assist the people
of I'rince Rupert in thuir efforts to exterminate the rat, the Optimist
has secured from Dr. Elmer li llcg, Commissioner of tlie Hoard of
Health of the State of Washington an article on the subject.    The,
hints given are based upon the experience of Seattle and oilier coast  Assays
cities in dealing with the rat plague.   Ur. Iley urges that efforts be
taken to prevent the rats from gelling food.    He says that besides
limiting reproduction, scarcity of food  will  make  the measures  to
destroy the animals by traps, poisons, or bacterial cultures far more
The general rat-prooling of buildings is the most important Btcp
in limiting the food supply of rals and garbage or offal of any kii d
must be so disposed of that rats cannot obtain it.
Among methods for driving away rats thai have proved useful
under some circumstances are the following: ..
1. freshly slaked lime placed dry in all burrows .md runs of
2. Freshly made thin whitewash poured into the rat burrows.
3. A strong solution of copperas (.ferrous sulphate: sprinkled in
the runs and burrow entrances.
4. Chloride of lime, loose or wrapped in old rags, placed in burrows
and runs.
5. Cas tar d.iubed about the burrow entrances,
0.   Powdered red pepper scattered in rat runs and burrows.
7.   Caustic potash placed in the burrows and runs,

as possible, food other than the bait should be inaccessible while trapping is in progress. The bait should be kepi fresh and ai tractive, and
the kind changed when necessary, H.iiis and traps should be handled
as little as possible. Ordinarily, traps should be frequently cleaned or
smoked. The use of artificial scents, as oil of anise or rhodium, on
tlie bait is advocated by many, bul their importance has
been exaggerated.
About sixty years ago a writer in lhe Cornhill Magazine gave
details of a trap by means of which il was claimed that 3000 rals were
caught in .i warehouse in a single nighl. The plan involved toiling
the rats to the place and feeding them for several night.- on the tops
of barrels covered wilh coarse brown paper. Afterwards a cross was
cut in the paper, so that the rats fell into the barrel. Reports are
frequently made of large catches of rats by means of a barrel ti 11��-< 1
with a light cover of wood, hinged on a rod so as to turn with the
weight of a rat.
This is a work which should not be left cntircl) to the council
to cope with. Every merchant in town should take pari iu lhe campaign
to exterminate the rat.

The Only Main Line Townsite in B. C. in which the G. T. P Railway Company Has Announced its Joint Ownership
Look at the Map
Ellison, you will find, occupies
the stragetic commercial point
which seems bound to command all
the trade of the Interior tributary
to Prince Rupert. It is where the
steel rails or the transcontinental
railway from the Atlantic touch
the salt waters of the Pacific on
the navigable waters of the Skeena
River. As a port it will be second
only to Prince Rupert in the northern part of this province and is also
second to this city as the only other townsite in which the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway and the
Government are jointly interested
in which lots are offered for sale.
We are all Pioneers. Not here for our health, but to make
money. No man ever saved more than a competence on a
salary; few do that. To get a footing on "Easy Street" you
have to invest. DOLLARS don't grow in your pockets, or in
a stocking. They must be put to work. Old Russell Sage
said: "Plant a few in a new country and see how fast they
grow." That's what your Uncle is telling you, and here is
the biggest opportunity of this kind that is likely to knock at
your door this year.
Read Current History
Prince Rupert lot speculators do
not need to have pointed out to
them what magic lies in the announcement thai the great railway
company and the government are
partners in the Ellison townsite.
That should be enough to bring
them a-running. But not everybody has the time to read the newspapers as closely as vour uncle. In
the Manitoba Free Press of Anril
5th, for instance, there was a Dig
headline reading : "Hundred ana
seventy new towns to be born in
Western Canada During the Coming Year." Reading the list one
finds many are Grand Truk Pacific
towns, but not one in British Columbia. No, Ellison and Prince
Rupert are the townsites in which
the railway is directly interested at
this time.
ELLISON���Where Atlantic Locomotives will toot salute to Pacific Steamers on the Skeena River���ELLISON
One nf the most popular of all thc official reports
published by the British Columbia Government is
the one bearing upon its title page the caption:
"New British Columbia," which has become generally known as "Bulletin No. 22," that being the
official number of the report It has been widely
(lisiriliuteil and you will have little difficulty in
finding one. On one page of this popular report
you will read this official declaration: "Upper
Skeena will become one of the garden spots of
British Columbia."
ELLISON, from its advantageous position,
wilh the Skeena River navigable for large steamers
at its front, a great transcontinental railway intersecting it, should naturally become the metropolis
of the wonderful garden spot of British Columbia
referred lo in tlie official re|iort.
ELLISON lots are ready sellers. Why,
Just study the map a minute or two.
ELLISON is a townsite in which the Government and the (irand Trunk Pacific are active partners.
There can, therefore, be not even a shadow of doubt
as to its future success. You are invited to share
in this certain success by investing in a few town
lots while they are at bottom prices. There are
only a few on isle and unless you arc Johniiy-on-thc-
spot on lhe day announced as the Opening Day of
our sale you may be disappointed. Belter make
your deposit as soon as (lossiblc and we will get
youjn on it at the prices fixed for our first offering.
ELLISON should, within a short time, have
aj-egular (rain service, as it is but a little distance
from Mile 104, to which point it is expected that
trains  from   I'rince   Rupert   will   bc  running   this
ELLISON may not bc thc only pebble on the
Skeena River beach, but it certainly is the only town-
site on that navigable water in which thc railway
company have announced themselves interested. No
doubt next year there may be other additions and
sections put on the market, but by that time prices
will have gone up. Now you have a chance to bc
in on lhe ground floor.
DOLLARS invested in good ground, rapidly
grow.   Did you look at that map;
WHERE *fhe Grand Trunk Pacific and the
Government are joint owners in a townsite the lots
should be regarded as a safe Investment. Your
money invested in ELLISON, or in Rogers addition
or any section that may be offered later, is safeguarded by every legal method human foresight can
conceive.     Where  one   might   and   properly   should

Addition to Ellison, write or wire

hesitate before investing in townsites promoted
by individuals or town-promotin companies, there
can be no hesitancy or misgiving as to town lots
in which thc Government and thc Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway are jointly interested.
ELLISON is different. Do you catch on? What
better guarantee can you possibly look for?
ELLISON lots should double and treble and
then go up some. It is believable that they will
soar four or five times above present prices. on
arc a lucky chap today if you own even one. If
you should think of selling it and want quick action,
list it with us. We feel confident the demand
for these lots will exceed the number we have
at present to offer.
PRINCE RUPERT'S brief history will be repeated in the sale of ELLISON town lots.
ELLISON should have the most rapid growth
of any new town in British Columbia or anywhere
else. Lots in the sections we are now offeri.ig for
sale, as well as such additions and sections that
may be offered  later,  may be calculated  to bring
investors similar returns to those resulting from
the first sale of Prince Rupert town lots.
ELLISON where the Grand Trunk Pacific
Transcontinental trains from the Atlantic will
first strike that wonderful Skeena River.
ELLISON is probably the greatest opportunity
for investing a few dollars on a reasonably certain
chance of winning big profits you arc likely to see
this year. But don't forget that the number of lots
is limited and you will have to hurry sonic if you
want to pick out one of the choicest loc.itions.
ELLISON needs at present merchants, hotel
men, "the baker, tlie butcher and the candlestick
maker," more than lot speculators, but they will
come later all right, as they did in Prince Ruper.t, and
ELLISON trades' people will live in a town
where railway freight rates will always be regulated
by the competition of water transportation, as
Ellison will be lhc lasl important landing up the
Skeena River. It is where the railway leaves thj.

ELLISON is your opportunity. GRAB IT.
"Opportunity knocks at every man's door."
Knocks all the time but some people are sleepy.
ELLISON is on the market NOW. It is very
doubtful if any other Grand Trunk townsite in
British Columbia will bc on the market this year.
Better come in early and get a little Ellison in your
list of holdings. Start a few dollars lo work there
and sec what they will cam.   -
ELLISON is destined to be the principal shipping point not only for the agricultural belt in the
Bulkley .md adjacent valleys -just glance at thc
map again and see what a vasl country will depend
on Kllison for its supplies and transportation for
its products. And then, when Grand Trunk officials
announce thc fact that it is THE townsite in the
Hazelton district in which their company is Interested,
you arc reminded of the great mining activity that
district is promised ihi- season, the machinery to
go in and the rich ore to conic out.
ELLISON,  lhe metropolis of "lhe garden spot
of British Columbia." Remember thai railway
townsites cannot  Ik- chosen  iu  British Columbia
like they .ire on lhe prairie between Winnipeg and
Kdmonlon cvcr\ eight miles a lown, every hundred
and   thirty   miles   a   divisional   point     In   British
Columbia there is greai engineering ability required
to las oul a route, many natural obstacles to contend
wiih, and towns iniisi bc located when' the engineers
can find suitable land lor sidings Ellison is -in ideal
spot for a town outside ni iu superiority (geographically. I.ike grape mils. "There's a reason." why
it should be at the point where the r.u'lway leaves
the Skeena Valley.   Look at your map.
ELLISON is the first spring opening oi Grand
Trunk Pacific offerings in the wa> of town lot Opportunities. There may be Others later, but t icre's
no certainty when. Jump in and takcallycr. Money
will not grow in your pocket ll should grow every
month this summer if you plant it in ELLISON.

The delimitation of the boundary
line lu'tween Canada and Alaska
from the Porcupine river, l.r>o
miles norlh of the Yukon river, to
ilu' Arctic ocean will likely be
completed during the coming summer, The work will be jointly
performed by two parties representing the government' intersts.
Mr. J, I). Craig will have charge
of the Canadian party. He will
co-operate with Mr. Thomas Kiggs,
Jr., the representative of tlie United
States Government. Each party
will comprise about forty men,
mostl) technical experts. Mr.
(.'r.iig reached here yesterday from j
Ottawa to spend a short time
i before leaving for the north.
The boundary line from Mount
Klia> north tc the Arctic, according to the Treaty of London, is the
Mist meridain. Precise astronomical observations have to be
taken in determining the boundary
which is subsequently marked by
bronze monuments located one
mile apart. Messrs. Craig and
Kiggs last season had charge of
the survey from the Yukon i"
the Porcupine river; the distance
remaining to be traversed northward through a moss-covered country to the Arctic is about 150 miles.
The meridian boundary south from
the Yukon in the direction of tin-
base line at Mount St. Elias lias
already been partially determined.
Last year the joint parties reached
White river, several hundred miles
south of the Yukon. No work
farther south in the direction of
Mount St. Elias will be performed
ihis season, farther north, across
the Yukon, Mr. Craig will have
two or three siib-p.uiies working
under his direction.
li is understood that the Dominion Government will also despatch several survey parties next
month to locale unfinished sections of the boundary between the
head of Portland Canal and the
vicinity of Skagway.

out Into effect, beef should be reduced to the consumer
from 8c. lo 5c. a pound] mutton from 3c. to 5c,
per pound, and pork the same. Poultry should be
reduced from oc. to 8c. per pound. Vegetables in
scarce times should come in from California with
i reduction of at least one-cpiarter of present prices.
Apples in the early season should bc reduced 20c
per box. And we should be so prosperous with such
,i substantial reduction in the high cost of living
iliat vve could afford melons and cantaloupes, anil
get them at Seattle prices. These are generally 10c.
,: piece in Seattle, and 15c. here, or 5c. in Seattle,
.ind 10c. here. The price of eggs should be reduced
,il least 5c. per do/en.
Wheat and barley, which are not produced in
lliritish Columbia  to any great  extent, are needed
|i     poultry raising in this Province.   The soft, cheap
tinier wheal of Washington is especially to poultry
ir.iisiTs.    The reduction in  the price of wheat will
|lu' I'.V. a bushel, or ��4.00 a ton;  and on barley, 15c.
bushel, or $0.00 a ton.
We may occasionally enjoy oysters under the
Licw condition of things.    The price of this luxury
ihould be reduced from 25 per cent to 40 per cent
luiuler the new agreement.
Talk about dressed meats���the importation
nl mutton, lamb and fresh meats for the year stated
amounted to $107,006. The duty paid amounted
lo $2!),802, and the rate has been reduced under
lhe new agreement from 3c. to 1 l-4c. per pound, a
paving to the consumer of about $17,000.
We imported during the same year, bacon and
liaius and other salt meats, totalling the enormous
���alue of Sl,037,921, upon which we paid a duty of
1335,890. The rate has been reduced under the
(lew agreement from 2c. to 1 l-4c. per pound, a saving
|o the country of 1126,200.
B. C. Is the Greatest Importer
I mill not point out to you that the greater
irtion of all these articles mentioned are imported
biiat the Province of British Columbia because none
bl the other provinces are to any great extent im-
|ortera of foodstuffs, with the exception of fruit
the Northwest, and the greater portion of the
avings which 1 have mentioned would come to thc
lople of British Columbia
In oilier words, an analysis of the schedule would
eail one to the conclusion that so far as the appli
fation of the tariff affects the cost of living, the saving
o the people of British Columbia should be at least
l.r) per cent of the present cost.
Mr. Cowan's Pamphlet
Now sir, British Columbia imports more food
bluffs tha.i any other province in the Dominion, and
rill get the greatest benefit from the free import-
In ion of food stuffs. Some years ago, our Conscr
Lative friends manufactured the cry of "better
terms" in this province to prejudice the people against
llit Ottawa Government The case for better terms
Iras prepared by Mr. Geo. H. Cowan, the present
Federal member for the eity of Vancouver. Here
l-what he says i i a pamphlet adorned with a sple idid
pit of himself, and spread broadcast to influence
ites in this province.   Mr. Cowan says
"But there is another branch of British Columbia's case, in that she imports more dutiable
goods ami hence pays more customs duties per head
t'f her population than any other province, ln so
lar as this excess prodceds from permanent causes
peculiar to British Columbia it would seem to con
Mituie by precedent a claim upon tlie central govern
I That is to say, if one tariff applied il" ovcr
Compels British Columbia,  by reason of her being
permanently unfitted from any cause for the nianu
it'iiire of dutiable goods, to make an excessive con
Inbution to the revenues of the Dominion, this cir-
runutance will in itself be recognised as an Inequality
Requiring adjustment."
Right About Face!
there waa anything to this argument, one would
hlmosl suppose that Mr. Cowan would be the first
Cowan argument that British Columbia was paying
more than its fair share in customs duties because
of its enormous importations of food stuffs. Is he
i.i favor of the removal of these duties now? Not
i bit of it. He was the first to denounce reciprocity
aind committed the Legislature, which he so absolutely controls, to a resolution against it. hie
can only come to the conclusion that in advocating
"better terms," these Tory leaders were not sincere,
and a close ai'.'.ly/alion of the figures prove that thc
whole case for "better terms" was based on figures
that cannot l.i. reconciled with the facts.
A Mischievous Cry
For years the Conservatives of British Columbia
went up and down the highways and by-ways of the
province shouting to the people that they had been
robbed of over eighteen million dollars by the Federal Government; that in the 34 years from the time
British Columbia joined the Confederation until
1905, that amount of money was collected from the
people of British Columbia in excess of what was
expentled In the province by the Dominion Government, The Auditor General of Canada, acting under
instructions from the Parliament of Canada, published the correct figures, and it was found that in
the 34 years mentioned, the Dominion Government
collected from all sources in British Columbia, aboul
sixty million dollars, or five million dollars more
than was collected.
"Better terms" was a most mischievous cry
because proper development can never take place
in Canada if it is to be hampered by a proper adjustment of receipts and expenditures so far as each and
every province is concerned. The best terms British
Columbia can get from the Dominion Government
is a proper appreciation of its natural resources
awaiting development, and an appreciation of the
fact that this part of Canada is important not because
it is the Province of British Columbia, but because
it is the western gateway of this great country "Can-
ida." We want the Dominion Government to assist
in opening up the western part of Canada by the
construction of more railways, by aids to navigation,
and we want this done because it is important from
a federal point of view and not because the Province
of British Columbia contributes the money, and we
want the Dominion Government to remove restrictions that prevent us from trading freely wi th our
neighbors and handicap us in the development of
our natural resources. The Dominion Government
is going a long way in doing this by the reciprocity
Helping the Fish  Industry
Take the fishing industry as an example. Under
thc previous regulations, the New England Fish
Company, an American concern, with headquarters
at Boston, had a practical monopoly of the halibut
fishing. Uniler the reciprocity agreement, with free
trade in fishing business, all fish companies with
headquarters at Prince Rupert can develop and
exploit the halibut industry and every other lish
industry at our very doors. \\ ith lish banks easily
thc richest in the known world, under the new conditions, tlie salmon canneries will have no more
short packs because a new market in the Southern
States among the large negro population is opened
up for the cheaper grades of fish that was heretofore
shut out by high duties.
Be Ready for the Fight
I could go on telling you how Prince Rupert
is to become the supply point for the Alaska trade
under the new conditions; how every other industry
will receive a new impetus from this trade agreement,
but I have already wearieil you. Let mc close by
appealing to you, Young Liberals, and you older
Liberals, and all of you who are interested in this
young city, that the battle for reciprocity has not
yet been won. When the battle cry is Bounded
you will find thai all the wealth and strength of
the protected interests of this country will line
up against freedom of trade.    The battle, when it
|t" wa-!, ome  any   measure   that  would   relieve   thecomes, will be short, sharp aid decisive.    If those

The Only Main Line Townsite in B. C. in which the G. T. P Railway Company Has Announced its Joint Ownership
Look at the Map
Ellison, you will find, occupies
the stragetic commercial point
which seems bound to command all
the trade of the Interior tributary
to Prince Rupert. It is where the
steel rails or the transcontinental
railway from the Atlantic touch
the salt waters of the Pacific on
the navigable waters of the Skeena
River. As a port it will be second
only to Prince Rupert in the northern part of this province and is also
second to this city as the only other townsite in which the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway and the
Government are jointly interested
in which lots are offered for sale.
We are all Pioneers. Not here for our health, but to make
money. No man ever saved more than a competence on a
salary; few do that. To get a footing on "Easy Street" you
have to invest. DOLLARS don't grow in your pockets, or in
a stocking. They must be put to work. Old Russell Sage
said: "Plant a few iu a new country and see how fast they
grow." That's what your Uncle is telling you, and here is
the biggest opportunity of this kind that is likely to knock at
your door this year.
Read Current History
Prince Rupert lot speculators do
not need to have pointed out to
them what magic lies in the announcement that the great railway
company and the government are
partners in the Ellison townsite.
That should be enough to bring
them a-running. But not everybody has the time to read the newspapers as closely as your uncle. In
the Manitoba Free Press of April
Sth, for instance, there was a Dig
headline reading : "Hundred and
seventy new towns to be born in
Western Canada During the Coming Year." Reading the list one
finds many are Grand Tru k Pacific
towns, but not one in British Columbia. No, Ellison and Prince
Rupert are the townsites in which
the railway is directly interested at
this time.
ELLISON���Where Atlantic Locomotives will toot salute to Pacific Steamers on the Skeena River���ELLISON
One- nf the most popular of nil the official reports
published lay the British Columbia Government is
the one bearing upon its title page the caption:
"New British Columbia," which has become generally known as "Bulletin No. 22," thnt being the
official number of the report. It has been widely
distributed and you will have little difficulty in
Boding one. On one page of this popular report
you will read this offidal declaration: "Upper
Skeena will become one of the garden spots of
British Columbia."
ELLISON, from its advantageous position,
with the Skeena River navigable for large steamers
at its front, a grcnt transcontinental railway intersecting it, should naturally become the metropolis
of the wonderful garden spot of British Columbia
referred to in the official report.
ELLISON lots are ready sellers. Why,
Just study the map a minute or two.
ELLISON is a townsite in which the Government and the < irand Trunk l'acilic nre active partners.
There can, therefore, be not even a shndow of doubt
as to its future success. You are invited to share
in this certain success by investing in a few town
lotsfyhile they are at bottom prices. There nre i
only a few on sale nml unless you nre Johnny-on-the-
spot on thejlny announced as the Opening Day of
our side you may be disappointed.   Better make
your deposit ns soon as possible and we will get
you in on it at thc prices fixed for our lirst offering.
ELLISON should, within a short time, have
a regular train service, as it is but a little distance
from Mile 104, to which point it is expected that
trains from Prince Rupert will be running this
ELLISON may not be tite only pebble on the
Skeenn River bench, but it certainly is the only town-
site on thai navigable water in which the railway
company have announced themselves interested. No
doubt next year there may be other additions and
sections put on the market, but by that time prices
will have gone up. Now you have a chance to bc
in on the ground lloor.
DOLLARS invested in good ground, rapidly
grow.   Did you look at that map;
WHERE the Grand Trunk Pacific and the
Government are joint owners in a townsite the lots
should be regarded as a safe investment. Your
money invested in ELLISON, or in Rogers addition
or any section that may bc offered later, is safeguarded by every legal method human foresight can
conceive.    Where one might and  properly should

hesitate before investing in townsites promoted
by individuals or town-promotin companies, there
can be no hesitancy or misgiving as to town lots
in which thc Government and the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway nre jointly interested.
ELLISON is different. Do you cntch on? What
better gunrnntee can you possibly look for?
ELLISON lots should double nnd treble and
then go up some. It is believable thnt they will
sonr four br five times above present prices. 0U
arc a lucky chap today if you own even one. If
you should think of selling it and want quick action,
list it with us. We feel confident the demand
for these lots will exceed the number we have
at present to offer.
PRINCE RUPERT'S brief history will bc repented in the sale of ELLISON town lots.
ELLISON should hnve the most rapid giowth
of nny new town in British Columbia or anywhere
else. Lots in the sections we nre now offering for
Bale, ns well ns such additions nnd sections that
may be offered  later,  may bc calculated  to bring
investors similar returns to those resulting from
the first sale of Prince Rupert town lots.
ELLISON where the Grand Trunk Pacific
Transcontinental trains from the Atlantic will
first strike that wonderful Skeena River.
ELLISON is probably the greatest opportunity
for investing n few dollars on a reasonably certain
chance of winning big prolits you are likely to see
this year. But don't forget that the number of lots
is limited nnd you will have taa hurry some if you
want to pick out one of the choicest locations.
ELLISON needs at present merchants, hotel
men, "the baker, the butcher and the candlestick
maker," more than lot speculators, but they will
come later all right, as thev did in Prince Rupert, and
ELLISON trades' people will live in a town
where railway freight rates will always be regulated
by the competition of water transportation, as
Ellison will be the last important landing up the
Skeena River. It is where the railway leaves the
Skeena Valley lo follow thai of ihe famous Bulkley
ELLISON is your opportunity.    GRAB IT.
Opportunity   knocks   at   every   man's   door."
Knocks all the time but some people are sleepy.
ELLISON is on the market NOW. It is very
doubtful if nny other Grand Trunk townsite in
British Columbia will be on the market this year.
Better come in early and get a little Ellison in your
list of holdings. Start a few dollars to work there
nnd see whnt they will earn.
ELLISON is destined to be the principal shipping point not only for the agricultural belt in the
Bulkley and adjacent valleys-just glance al the
map again and see what a vast country will depend
on Ellison for its supplies and transportation for
its products. And then, when Grand Trunk officials
announce the fact that it is THE townsite in the
Haxclton district in which their company is interested,
you are reminded of the great mining activity that
district is promised this season, the machinery to
go in and the rich ore to come out.
ELLISON, thi' metropolis of "the garden spot
of British Columbia." Remember that railway
townsites cannot be chosen in British Columbia
like they are on the prairie between Winnipeg and
Edmonton every eight miles a town, every hundred
and thirty miles a divisional point, ln British
Columbia there is great engineering ability required
to lay out a route, many natural obstacles to contend
with, and towns must be located where the engineers
can find suitable land for sidings. Ellison is nn ideal
spot for a town outside of ils superiority geographically. Like grape nuts, "There's a reason," why
it should be at the poinl where the railway leaves
the Skeena Valley.   Look at your map.
ELLISON is the first spring opening of Grand
Trunk l'acilic offerings in the way of town lot opportunities.    There may  be others later,   but   t icrc's
DO certainty when.   Jump in and take a Iher.   Money
will not grow in your pocket.    It should grow every
month this summer if you plant ii in ELLISON.
How can you lose? You don't hnve to put up the
whole price, you know. Come early and select
Ellison lots, 20 per cent cash, balance easy terms, 7
per cent interesi. Select Rogers Addition lots, 1(1

Prince Rupert unless \\t lake advantage of our
opportunities, unless we do our part in breaking
the shackles that fetter trade and restrict development of our natural resources. What is the other
Prince Rupert? I feel safe in saying that from
the shadow of the North Pole to the North Pacific
Ocean, from the western bonier of Alberta to the
Coast, is an u (developed Empire richer in natural
resources tha i a iy other part ol Canada, a.id as
rich as any country in the world. Lying along
side of us and separated from us only by trade barriers erected by Governments elected by the people,
is Alaska, rich enough and large enough lo build
in this northern country, to build on this Kaien
mil, one of the greatest commercial cities in the
world, if trade were allowed lo follow natural channels.
The Norlh l'acilic has more wealth in fish than any
Other known water in the world, and that fish would
Ihul a centre from which it would be distributed to
feed the people of the world, and that centre would
be I'ri ice Kupert if governments elected by the
people would allow trade to follow natural channels!
and not attempt to force it to other points by protective tariffs. And then there is mineral and coal,
timber and agricultural resources all awaiting development but handicapped at the outset by the high cost
of living and by the discouraging restrictions imposed
by high tarills made to protect industries in which
we are not locally interested and which are generally
a stumbling block iu thc way of the development
Ol natural resources.
Which Shall It Be;
Let me impress upon you that the mere transshipment ol oilier people's good-, | roduced by otherj
people's toil and energy, through litis port of I'rince
Rupert, will never make I'rince Rupert great. Thc
greatness of I'rince Kujuri will depend upon the
energy of its people and the development of the
natural resources immediately at your door. Which
Prince Rupert shall it be   the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway terminus or a great commercial centre���
an argosy into which will be poured all the wealth
of mis northern country? That will largcl) depend
upon jrou, young men. members of the Young Liberal
Association, .md other young nun, who although

Rupert; that the Government in amending iis lariil

than f"i .my other p.irt of the country.
What Reciprocity Is
What is reciprocity? Canada U.n* a tariff wall
.11 ross which no goods can come, not even the necessaries of life, unless they pay to the Government
pproximatcly 20 per cent of their value. The
I tilted States has a tariff wall as high as the liis-|
torical "Hainan's gallows." On both sides thc
consunu 1- of these tomis pay the extra cost imposed
bj these duties until the mst ()f living has gone up
b> leaps and bounds and it has become difficult

"Too British" for Sir Charles
The Liberal Government secured a further!
reduction in thc tariff by a British preference. Again
our Tory friends cried "Ruin." The Jeremiahs
of the Jeremiahs were heard throughout this broad
Dominion and that doughty veteran, Sir Charles
Tupper, again buckled on his armour and proclaimed that Sir Wilfrid Laurier was too British
for him. Did ruin come? Not a bit of it. Canada
prospered as she had never done before.
Through all these years of prosperity, the high
tariff men were .lot idle. Through manufacturers
associations and   kindred   organizations,   they   kepi
then Colonial Secretary, was a stinging ten
those fair-weather Loyalists, and he expressed thelwouK
pious hope that the people of Canada were bound
to the Mother Land by a firmer bond than a commercial one, and that the people of Canada did not
desire that a market for their products should be;
maintained by a perpetual tax upon the people of
"Globe" Comments on Situation
'lhe Toronto Globe of that day said: "It was
amusing to watch the effects of the new British policy
upon the Tory members of the Province. 1 he
comments of these members afforded an admirable
illustration of the selfishness of Toryism. Give
them everything they could desire, and ihey werel
brimful of loyalty. They would chant paeons tinti
llu\ were sick, and drink goblets until they were
blind, in praise of wise and benevolent Governors]
who gave theni all the offices and all the emolu
incuts, but let their interests, real or imaginary, be
affected, and how sooi did their loyalty evaporate.-'
Now, there was talk of separation from the Mother
Country unless the Mother would continue to feed
theni in the method prescribed by the child. Tory
loyalty was estimated in pounds, shillings and pence.
When these were withdrawn, il sustained a collapse.
It was a strange thing, the Tory loyalty. You
might trample on every privilege, you miglil opposi
the passage of every good law, you might enact
class legislation by which the interests of the many
were entirely sacrificed for the few, and you would
not disturb the Tory's loyalty. He seemed to be
better pleased to show his loyally for the preser
vation of things as they were. But the moment
the Government ventured legislation on a broad,
just and comprehensive scale, the Tory's loyalty

The Liberals came into office in^l800, and a
oint High Commission was appointed for the purpose
of discttssi.ig with the United States Government,
trade and other matters. The Canadian Commission,
which was composed of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir Rich,
ird Cartwright, Sir Louis Davis and John Carlton,
M. P., sat i.i Quebec from August to October, 1898,
ind in Washington from October, 181)8, to January,
18i)9. This Commission was not a success so far as
closer trade relations was concerned because the
Canadian Coinmissio lers found that the Republican
eaders then i.i power were High Protectionist!,
md were not willing to make a fair agreement with
Canada. Sir Wilfrid was so disgusted and dis
Appointed that he made the announcement that lit
would make no further pilgrimages to Washington,
A Great Awakening
But there recently came a great awakening
to tlie politicians of tlie United States. People
rebelled against the high cost of living brought
ibout by a high tariff. They demanded a revision
of the tarilT downwards, They did not like it
Insurgent candidates sprang up in different statu.
and the leaders of the Republican party became
alarmed. President Taft went to Albany to meet
Mr. Fielding for the purpose of discussing t.irili
irrangemenis with him. lie sent his tariff experU
to Ottawa, for the purpose of endeavoring to arriu
it a more satisfactory trade arrangement, a id, li.i.ilh,
it the invitation of the President of the United
States, .Messrs. Fielding and Patterson went to
Washington and concluded a trade agreement ur;
much along the lines of the Reciprocity Treaty ol
1S54, and in conformity wilh the Trade Polic\ laid
down by the Liberal party in National Convention
it Ottawa in 1808.
Is It Sound Policy?
Is it sound policy? Is it sound policy? Where
you in favor of the Liberal trade policy laid doM
by the National Convention iu 18!>3.> If il was good
policy then, is it yiKtd polity now ? After lhe Liberals
came into power in 18SH), a tariff commission w.i>
appointed for the purpose of enquiring into and
revising the tariff. The Commission, in a measure,
carried out the Liberal promise to reduce the tariff.
Iron duties were reduced; barbed wire and binde
twine were placed on the free list in the intercsu
of the farmer: the duty on Hour was reduced; il��
duty on sugar was substantially reduced, ami du
duty on the raw material of many farm necessaria
was reduced. Other reductions were made, and
ibovc all, the British preference of 33 1-3 per cent
wiis placed upon the Statute Books. The tlutv on
every article of British manufacture is one-lhirtl Its-
than the general duty.
All these reductions lessened the burdens ��i
the consuming classes, but, notwithstanding -i"'1
reductions, the cost of living has gone up by leaps
and bounds, ami in no part of Canada is the cost
of living higher than in British Columbia.
I nder these circumstances, is there any man,
not blinded by party prejudice, who will say that
the Government should do nothing to ameliorate
the condition of the gnu consuming classes in tH*
