POLICE STAND GUARD TO
ENFORCE MAYOR'S RULING
System of Holding Free and Easy "Wawas" in Connection with all Natters Affecting City Under Guise of Full and Free Discussion
has Objectionable Features in Addition to Delaying
Transaction of Public Business.
■
The meetings of the city council
still continue to form the chief attraction in the evenings. Following
the programme of last night, when
the police were called in to enforce
the ruling of the chair, it is highly
probable that the attendance will
be still larger at subsequent meetings.
The police were asked to be present as a result of the refusal of the
superintendent of public works, 'Air.
McNeill, to desist from interrupting
members of the council when asked
to do so. Aid. Clayton insisted that
order be maintained, and suggested
an appeal to the police station which
the mayor acted upon. The episode
arose in connection with a discussion
of the proposal to do away with the
superintendent's office, Mr. McNeill
being given a chance to be heard.
The office is to be done away with.
Considered Report
With the return of the city engineer, the consideration of clause
11 of the report of the public works
committee was re-considered. This
clause dealt with the doing away of
the office of superintendent of public works.
Aid. Clayton said if the intention
was to place all the work under the
engineer's department he was in
favor of this. He was not in favor
of it if the intention was simply to
replace Mr. McNeill by another officer.
Aid. Morrlssey said he agreed with
this.
Aid. Maitland thought that the
superintendent of public works
should get fair play. The chairman
of the  public   works committee  had
charged     tlie    superintendent   with
padding the pay bills.
Aid. Morrissey objected to this.
Me said there was no such accusation,
Superintendent's Voice
Superintendent McNeill broke in
with a statement that there was, and
a very free discussion followed, the
mayor demanding that they maintain order.
Aid. Maitland wanted to know
why Aid. Morrissey did not find out
a lot of this last year when he was
a member of the committee. Instead the council raisea the salary
of  the  superintendent.
Aid. Morrissey objected to this
as being out of order. He was not
there to be a target for these people.
Aid. Maitland thought it very unfair to dismiss Mr. McNeill with a
black eye such as it was proposed
to do.
Aid. Kerr felt that Mr. McNeill
might well be kept on. There was
a necessity for him. The engineer's
staff was being cut down, and a
purchasing agent might be employed.
Aid.   Bullock-Webster   was   in   accord with dispensing with the office
from the standpoint of economy.
Mr. McNeill's Defence
Superintendent McNeill was given
a hearing. He said all he asked for
was fair play. It had not been given
him  by x\ld.  Morrissey.
The mayor said that he would insist upon Mr. McNeill observing
some ruies. He objected to his
levelling remarks against any member of the board.
Mr. McNeill said he was a ratepay
er, and would be heard. Me would
meet the charges of Aid. Morrissey
against himself anil the public worksj
board of last year.
Engineer's Charges
Mr. McNeill said he knew he was
singled out to be the goat. He was
going to meet the charges brought
by the engineering department.
Aid. Montgomery did not believe
there were any charges against Mr.
.McNeill.
Aid. Morrissey said he would be
ready to introduce a resolution!
clearing Mr. McNeill of all wrong.
Mr. McNeill said that he wanted,
the charges made by the engineering
department cleared up.
Aid.   Clayton  said  that  he  want-1
ed   to   see   decorum   maintained   at'
the  council   board,     otherwise     he,
would insist upon the mayor callin
the police and clearing the room.
Mr. McNeill said he would notj
take the job again for $100 mon
a month—to be dictated to by hal
a dozen aldermen, and to be me
by men on the streets looking foi
work that he could not give.
Further warm words followed
when the mayor called upon Mr. Mci
Neill to sit down.
Mr.   McNeill   ceased   talking,   bu
refused to sit down.
Calls  Police
The mayor then acting upon  Hi-
initiative  of  Aid.   Clayton,   'phom
the  police  station,  and     soon  "tv?
members     of     the   force  appeared
Officers Adams and  Hamblin.

Ottawa, Feb. 7.- Plans [or an

by Harbor Commissioners Ballan-

)rVILL INVESTIGATE THE OIL
LANDS OF GRAHAM ISLAND
Hr. Coovert who Arrived Today is Believed to Represent Large Interests Which Seek to Find Out Exactly What there is to Offer
'  in Petroleum Fields on the West Coast of Queen
Charlotte Group.
There arrived in the city yesterday by ihe Prince Rupert Mr.
Coovert, who is on his way to Mas-
set. He will proceed to the west
roast of Graham Island from Mas-
mi for the purpose of investigating
the oil fields there located. Mr.
Coovert is said to represent very
important interests, and his visit is
accordingly of great importance. He
is not advertising his visit, but is
believed to have in view a very important mission.
The character of the country on
the west coast of the island has been
described by all experts who have
inspected It as being essentially indicative of oil.
There is work now going on under the B. C. Oilfields, a company
controlled in Vancouver. Drilling is
going on, and with the completion
of the work there something definite
will be forthcoming upon which to
base a practical Opinion. There are
also several syndicates holding
claims there.
Mr. Coovert will give attention to
the work going on there, and make a
careful investgiatlon into the whole
situation.
The interests which lie is said to
represent are among Hie largest in
the Dominoln of Canada, and the
diversion of their attention to tlie oil
fields so close to Prince Rupert Is
another indication that tlie areas are
giving excellent promise.
These parties have very varied
interests in northern British Columbia, as well as elsewhere in the
province. The holding of a source
of cheap fuel such as oil affords
would mean very much to the company reported to be concerned. Much
interest will attach to the report of
Mr. Coovert.

Aid. Morrissey's Scandal  Respecting
Robbery ill Connection With Sal-
Soda  Exploded  at  Meeting
The employment of a city purchasing agent, other than the city
clerk, was considered by the council
last night following the decision to
do away with the superintendent of
public works, This came in as another clause in the report of Hie public works committee.
The recommendation was opposed
by Aid. Montgomery, Me said that
he did not believe Hie work could be
better carried out than at present.
Me called attention to what he described as a dangerous move, as
every man had his price. Me included  himself.
Me made certain suggestions as
to carrying out the work by which
each departmenl might look after
their  own.
Aid. Maitland thought the hands
of Mr.  Woods were well  filled  now.
Col. Davis, being asked to Bpeak

POOL ROOM BY-LAW

The city council will on Monday
evening consider the pool room bylaw, which aims at closing pool
rooms at midnight, the same as is
the rule with bar rooms. The bylaw
also provides against the pool room
being open on Sundays and the allowing of boys about these rooms.
The bylaw came up last night.

The mayor said the city solicitor

It  Is Said—Minister is Not
Fearful
London, Feb. 7.—Disregarding
the advice of his friends, Winston
Churchill started today for Belfast,
where he is scheduled to speak tomorrow mi  behalf of Home Rule.
Despatches from Belfast say It is
almost certain that riots will follow
any attempt of Mr, Churchill to
speak.
Mr, Churchill, however, stated before leaving that he had no fear of
molestations,

When Sir Charles Tupper was
thus looking forward to a confederated Canada administration by a son
of Queen Victoria, tlie first Dominion Day was still seven years in the
future, and the Duke of Connaught,
our present Governor-General, was
a boy ten years old. Like so many
of Sir Charles Tupper's predictions,
Wis one lias been accomplished. To
the people of Nova Scotia fifty one
years ago how remote and strange
would seem his reference to the Red
River and the Saskatchewan regions.' No man did more than lie to
bring these regions close in interest
and Intercourse with the people of
Eastern Canada, and no man did
more to bring this Dominion to the
high -talus the Imperial Government
lias recognized by appointing the
sen of Queen Victoria as Its Governor-General.

Is how showing a disposition to gel

saw more accomplished than has
been the ease since the new council
took  power.
AN Oil- CENTRE
This coming summer it is altogether like y that the exact worth
of the oil fields on the west coast of
Graham Island will be tested. If
there is oil found in paying quantities, the prospects are thai the development there will be tremendous.
If reports be true there are capitalists of national reputation now looking into the prospects there. If the
result of the investigations are favorable, the means is readily available with tlie sanction of these interests to fully exploit Hie whole
area.
If fuel oil is found in tlie location
the effects upon Prince Rupert will
be most striking. Close as it is to
the fields the benefits will all flow-
to this port. It will mean cheap
fuel for this city, with the consequent results which are impossible
to estimate in these days of keen
competition in an industrial sense.
Prince Rupert is the natural base of
supplies for all the development
work that will be carired out in that
pari of the island, and will reap corresponding benefits from the building
up  of   the   islands.

A good many rumors are in circulation at. present with regard to Germany's future programme of armaments. In this country the general
idea seems to be that any increase
of German armaments would be on
Hie naval side, the German army
being already In the same position
of supremacy as the British navy,
says  Hie Glasgow  News.
The truth is, there is reason for
supposing the German army to have
deteriorated considerably of late
years, as a result, largely of the attempt to run a first-class navy and
a first-class army together—-an at-
tempt in which no nation has ever
yet  succeeded.
Ii has, besides, been recently
pointed out by .Mr. Hilaire Belloc,
that France has now more trained
men at her command than Germany.
So that there need not be great surprise over the statement of Hie
"Tageblatt" mat the German government has decided not lo present a
new naval programme to the Reichstag, hut to propose increasing the
army by IS infantry battalions and
a considerable number of Machine-
gun companies. It would be rash,
of course, to accepl that stnieinent
as conclusive, but it may at least lu-
iliu-e us in await more certain Information before allowing ourselves
to lie alarmed by rumors of German
naval  expansion  In   1912.

SPOR TS
BILLY  DELANEV'S  DEATH
Billy Delaney, the famous trainer
of prizefighters, who died in Oakland, cal., aged 58 years, had been ill
for several months, and his death was
not unexpected. While on a visit to
the east last year he contracted a
severe cold, complications of which
caused his death.
Billy Delaney held a prominent position in pugilistic circles for two
decades. He was recognized as the
best trainer and greatest Judge of
fighters in America. During his professional career lie handled at different times Jack Johnson, .lames J,
Jeffries, .lames .1. Corbett, Joe
Choynski, Al Kaufman, Jimmy Brltt,
and lesser lights of the prize ring.
Delaney discovered Jim Corbett,
then a bank runner in San Francisco.
He piloted "Gentleman Jim" to the
heavyweight championship when the
latter defeated John L. Sullivan at
New Orleans September 17, 1892.
When Corbet began to show signs of
a reversal of form Delaney took up
Jim Jeffries and forged a champion
out of the rawest material that ever
entered a prize ring. He trained
Jeffries when the latter knocked out
Fitzsinimons at Coney Island, and
conditioned him in his two victorious
battles with Jim Corbett.
After leaving Jeffries, Delaney
declared the boilorinaker lacked
heart. He said that he prevented
Jeffries from quitting in several
fights. He, IiowovVt, remained on
good terms witli Jeffries until the
former champion repudiated a match
Delaney made with Bill Squires In
Australia. Delaney said Jeffries had
authorized him to make the match.
Under the management of Delaney Al Kaufman made rapid
strides, but the noted trainer accepted the offer to train Jack Johnson
in the latter's fight with Jeffries
on July 4, 1910. The sight of Delaney in the negro's corner is believed to have taken the heart completely out of Jeffries when he entered the ring at Reno. When asked
why he deserted Jeffries, lie said:
"1 quit Jeffries for welching on a
gambling debt and running out of
the Squire's match. I could not conscientiously have any further dealings with Jeffries."
Delaney's failure to make a champion of Al Kaufman soured him on
the game. lie practically retired
last summer when he was in New
York for the last time, lie then said
he was going to lake it easy for the
rest of his life. He was born in
New York.
Delaney had a comfortable home
at Oakland, Cal., and was a man of
means and standing in tlie community, He leaves a widow and two
sisters. The latter live in New York
State.
Delaney was inseparably associated with the history of amateur and
professional boxing in tlie west, lie
was a pioneer In vigorous training
methods, enforcing rigid discipline
and much outdoor work, to which lie
ascribed his success. Delaney was a
boxer of note, as well as trainer, and
a lew years ago acted as sparring
partner to his men. While he was
thoroughly familiar with every aspect of the sport, defending it
staunchly and advancing its interests in every possible way, Delaney
was not heavily interested financially,  and  rarely made  large  bets.
ROYAL   SPORTSMEN
King George is considered one of
tlie three best shots in all England.
As an all-around shot lie is said to
be the peer of any of his subjects,
and his hunting records have been
made in all pans of the world. Tlie
tiger hunt in the Nepal Jungle was
the clowning achievement of his career as a sportsman, and tlie splendid photographs which have been
senl out of India Bhow that the reports of the King's prowess as a
hunter of the tiger were nol exaggerated,
in die Nepal limit, thirty-four
tigers were bagged, ami of this number twenty-four was lulled by the
King. During that Uuul King George
is said to have brought down a tiger
and a bear witli the right and left
barrels of his rifle.
Al. Lord Lathi-oni's historic shoot
in 1894 eight guns brought down
2,100 head of game between 0 a. m.
and 4 p. in. the second day, and
at the shoot King George's record
was the best. He was then Prince
of Wales. AI this shoot King George
used three guns, and It is said that
on several occasions there were four
birds in the air falling together, all
of them having been killed by the
royal hunter.
King George was a member of the
duck shooting party In Cumberland
that brought down nearly ;i,r>i>0
ducks in three days, and again he
was the best shot among the nine
sportsmen who took part in that
hunt.     On  the  first  day   the  party
brought down 1,141, the second day
1,184 and on the third day 1,150
ducks.
At Lake Manitoba in Canada he
was of the party that bagged 742
ducks and 70 snipe in a day and a
half's shooting.
Once during a week's stalk at Balmoral he killed thirteen of the twenty-two stags that were shot.
Once King George measured his
skill with that of his uncle, the Emperor of Germany. It was a winds-
day, the light was not good, and
the birds were strong on the wing.
The monarchs made fifty-four shots.
The Kaiser missed seven and King
George missed one shot.
"Few men keep such a clear eye
and steady, cool nerve after the age
of 40, as His Majesty has done," a
member   of   one iving   George s
hunting  party said recently.
BAYLEY'S SUCCESS
Joe Bayley, the Victoria lightweight, knocked out Billy Decour-
scy in fifteen rounds at Saskatoon
the other night. It was a fairly even
battle for five rounds when the coast
lightweight put over some heavy
punches and had Decoursey in distress the remainder of the distance.
In the fifteenth round Bayley opened up fast and floored Decoursey
and he was carried' to his corner.
Bayley will engage in a fight at Edmonton next week and ' will afterwards go south to San Francisco,
where he expects to arrange a match
with "One Round" Hogan. Jimmy
Coffroth has promised to promote
the match.
SHIM ISB'S SHOWING
That Alfred Shrubb, holder of the
world's record for two miles, is still
to be reckoned in the field of professional athletes, was demonstrated
last week in Watertown, N.Y. In a
match race with Hill Queal, the American professional champion, the
great English runner covered ten
miles in 49 minutes 9 2-5 seconds,
breaking the world's record of 51
minutes and 55 seconds. The race
ended in a terrific sprint, in which
Queal succeeded in recovering a
quarter of a lap, but Shrubb managed to finish three-quarters of a
lap to the good.
Shrubb's showing is considered
remarkable. A year ago he was
crippled and thought to be out of
the running game for good. Some
of his performances were miserable.
He has more recently been training
the Harvard long distance runners.
No one has ever been able to equal
Shrubb's record of 9 minutes 9 3-5
seconds for two miles, established
when he was an amateur.
A  FUTURE RECORD
A mile in 1:40 is the prediction of
George Dietrich, secretary of the
Grand Circuit.
"Some will say 1 am crazy to
make such a predict ion*" said Dietrich, "but I firmly believe that ultimately a harness horse will trot a
mile  in   1:40.
"Horsemen have felt that each
new world's record would stand forever. The first horse to beat 2.30
was Lady Suffolk, 2:29 1-2, in 1856.
Horsemen of that (lay said the feat
would never be accomplished again.
Within twelve years Dexter cut down
the mark to 2:17 1-4, and six years
later Goldsmith Maid went in 2:11.
Two years after Goldsmith Maid trot
ted her, at that time, sensational
mile. Rarus set a mark of 2:13 1-4,
which was lowered to 2:11 1-4 by
St. Julian before another two years
had passed. All of these miles were
driven in a high wheel sulky.
"Then came the bike sulky, and
through various stages down
Through Sunol, Nancy Hanks, Alix,
Lou Dillon and Uhlan, the record
has been reduced to 1:58 3-4, in
the open. Lou Dillon's mark of
1 :5S 1-2 was made with the aid of
a   wind  shield.
"Ten years ago there was n Bptl'lt-
ed controversy as to whether a horse
would ever reach the two-minute
marl;. it would- be as foolish now
lor a man to say that 1:57 3-4 will
never lie beaten as il was in 1867
when   Roberl   Bonner said   Dexter's
record ol 2: 17 1-1 would stand as ;i
world's  record  for all  time.
"Httdd Doble, who drove Dexter
that mile, predicted tlie two-minute
trotter and  was ridiculed.
"Of course there is certain to be
a limit as we now look at the speed
oi horses, but that limit has not been
reached by far. Uhlan trotted half
mile last year in ;56 1-4. That
means, under favorable conditions,
he can trot a mile in 1:56, or a
shade better, and Uhlan is now no
more the acme of perfection in the
trotting horse than Dexter was years
ago.
"Of course the more the record It
reduced the harded it will be to elf.
it a quarter of a second, but it will
be done. I have known harness
horses to pull a sulky as fast for an
eighth of a mile as the best runners
can  run,  which  Is close  to   12:3-4.

Therefore, with improvement In
breeding and greater intelligence
in training, 1 cannot see why a horse
trotting to a sulky, should not ultimately reach a mile in 1:40."

FURTHER REFORMS
Postmaster General is in Favor of Reducing the Cable Rates Below
Present Cut.
Question   of 1'arcel  Post  And   Rural
Mail  Delivery Also Require
Attention, He Says
Hon. -Mr. Pelletier made an interesting statement in the House of
Commons a few days ago with regard to parcels post and to cable
rates. He foreshadowed a measure
of extension of the parcels post,
while careful to say that the expansion can hardly be as extensive as
that asked for by numerous members of parliament. He was careful
also to say that the extension of
rural free delivery must go on, and
that of the two reforms he prefers
the rural free delivery.
With regard to cable rates, he was
more emphatic. He agreed that recent reductions In cable rates had
been absolutely inadequate. The
government, he said, should not be
content to sit quiet and wait. The
cable companies must understand
that Canada intends to trade with
Great Britain and one way of procuring trade communication is procuring cheap cable rates. Canada
is a self-governing colony, but it Is
also part of a great empire and must
share cheap communication with the
rest of the countries. He referred
to charges that the cable companies
are monopolies and are subject to
American capitalists. It was the duty
of the country to do something with
regard to this state of affairs. "We
are not satisfied with the present
rates,  and   expect  better."
He favored the principle of parcels post, but pointed out that there
are great difficulties. Apart from
such questions as enormous size,
great distances and the sparse population of Canada, there were numerous technical difficulties, such as
the increased number of mail cars
which would be needed, the rates
which the railways might charge,
alterations in size of the mail bags
and fittings, etc. He believed, however, in making improvements, and
suggested that he might find means
to make the express companies reduce  their  rates.

THE POLICE STAND GUARD
(Continued From Page One)
Bullock-Webster, the action of the
mayor  was endorsed.
Quid Restored
Quiet having been produced before the police appeared, the proceedings   went  on.
Aid. Dybhavn said that it was not
the intention to dismiss Mr. McNeill
without expressing satisfaction with
his work. A purchasing agent was
-to be employed also.
Aid. Morrlssey said that he was
not moving personally against Mr.
McNeill. It was a move in the interests  of economy.
Aid. .Maitland asked why Aid.
Morrissey did not say what he was
saying now a week ago when he said
the streets were not kept cleaned
up. He explained what bad passed
with respect to the engineer's statements.
Fresh Outbreak
Mr, McNeill said that lie would
not continue in office under the
present public works committee.
Aid.  Morrissey  asked   II   Mr
Nelll  would   please  resign.
Mr,  McNeill  said  be   would
now.
Objection was taken by Aid. Clayton to Aid. Morrissey addressing
Mr, McNeill without addressing tlie
chair in once.
While ihis was proceeding, the
mayoi was again calling Mr. McNeill
down, the summons to deslsl being
obeyed.
The mayor, however, called a police officer m lake his place close
to the chair with the admonition,
"Will  you   stop   here and    Ihe     first
mi'ii who coes contrary to my ruling
will you 'nab' 11iin and put him outside."
With a police officer on either
side of the table, the proceedings
were continued.
Aid.   .Montgomery  thought   it  was
Mi
nol
quite evident that the public works
department needed alterations.-
Aid. Morrlssey expressed a readiness to resign.
Aid. Kerr moved towards the retaining of the office of superintendent of public works.
Aid. Clayton moved in amendment
that the office be dispensed with and
that the office be dispensed with and
the public works be placed under
the engineer's department.
The latter amendment carried.
A motion was moved by Aid.
Morrissey that the council recognized the efficient and faithful services rendered by Mr. McNeill, and
that the only reason for the doing
away with the office was in the interests of economy.
The   motion   carried   unanimously.
COAL PROPERTIES
Alex Faulds is on His Way to Inspect
Property Being Opened Under His
Guidance.
I).   It.   Young   Has    Another    Find
Which Promises Well, He Says—
Showing   Right   on  Surface
The coming spring gives promise
of opening very early as far as business in the north is concerned There
is already a decided move on the part
of investors and others in this direction, and it would seem that the
travel Is to be especially active at a
very early date now.
The Prince Rupert yesterday
brought to this port over one hundred passengers, most of them not
residents here. Among them was
Alex. Faulds, M.E., of Vancouver,
who has come north on this occasion for the purpose of making an
inspection of the British American
Coal company's mines on the Queen
Charlottes. He will go over to Mas-
set today and from there proceed
overland to his destination, not far
from Skidegate.
The work on this property is proceeding very well, he says, and the
indications are excellent for the future of the mine. He will not remain very long there at this time,
but will return as soon as he ascertains what is being done, and has
given advice for the future work to
be carried out at the property.
Coal on Surface
Another interested in coal was a
passenger on the steamer. This was
0. R. Young, of Queen Charlotte
City, who is also developing a property bight at that point. Mr, Young
is on his way back to begin the development of what he has every hope
will become one of the best things
in the coal line on the island. It is
a body of coal right on the surface
and within the bounds of the city of
Queen Charlotte. The secret was
revealed to Mr. Young by an Indian
and a two foot seam is exposed.
Steps will be taken at once to develop the 'proposition and prove
exactly what there is there.
Acocmpanylng Mr. Young is S.
A. Ranisy, of Calgary, who is interested in tlie coal property which is
being opened up under tlie general
guidance of Mr, Young.

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch  Ranges are built so that they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening into the body there
is a   Malleable   Iron  frame to which  the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed In such joints.   They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus  stove  bolts and  stove putty.     It's
Important  to  every  one  using or  buying
a range.
