David Stuart Tells of Some of the Conditions Surrounding the Producing of the Famed Apples Grown
in the Valleys of the Northern Part
of British Columbia.
David Stuart, the pioneer fruit
grower of this district, has been in
the city this week. For the past
six or eight years Mr. Stuart's name
has been heralded far and wide. He
has shown that the Skeena River
valley is an ideal fruit producing
section of the country. Until he had
demonstrated the fact there were
few who believed that the northern
portion of British Columbia would
bring forth an horticultural area
that would in a few years become
the rival of some of the very richest
producing sections of the west where
fruit is grown equal to that found
anywhere in the world.
Mr. Stuart Is not a theorist. He
began In a practical way and planted
his orchard discovering what the
district could do in that line. The
result has been a surprise even to
himself. He has now about six or
eight acres of land under cultivation
and in that plat he has apples, pears,
cherries, plums and all kinds of
small fruits and vegetables. The lessons that he learned are now being
taken advantage of by others who
are going in. He has demonstrated
in a very practical way that the
Skeena is to be reckoned with in
the near future not only in the line
of mixed farming but as a fruit producer.
The work that Mr. Stuart has done
has been of the most valuable kind,
There has been no pampering of the
trees as might have been alleged
had the work been done under the
charge of a government official or by
any land company. Mr. Stuart
planted his orchard as a commercial
proposition. He had not ends to
serve but that of producing apples,
etc., for his own use. Under the
conditions prevailing in the valley
when he first planted, the trees had
anything but a good chance. Yet he
has produced fruit that can take its
place alongside of ' that produced
anywhere else in the world, and not
suffer by comparison.
Mr. Stuart is located at Little Canyon. Naturally he believes that that
portion of the Skeena district is the
most highly favored throughout the
whole extent.    Unquestionably it is
one of the choicest of the areas, but
it is not possessed of all the good
features from an horticultural standpoint and others in a position to
judge agree that It Is but one of
many rich valleys that are now to be
opened up to the settler.
When asked as to the conditions
as compared with the famed Okanagan, Mr. Stuart would not admit that
the southern interior point was in it
for a moment with the valley in
which he produces his famed fruit,
which Is located at mile 89 on the
Grand Trunk Pacific. There is a
luscious quality about the Skeena
fruit that is not found in that produced elsewhere on the coast, the
apples being juicy and of the best
of color and flavor.
There can be no question that the
long days with the accompanying
sunshine has much to do with the
giving of these excellent qualities to
this fruit.
With respect to the varieties to
be raised, Mr. Stuart says all kinds
of apples seem to do well. The yellow Transparent is a fine bearer and
grows as big as your two fists. He
has tried all kinds, however, and
they do well. If grafted on the
stocks on the ge-ound the trees bear
the year after the grafting. Two or
three years' time in any event brings
the fruit into bearing.
Pears have not been tried to any
great extent, but Mr. Stuart says he
has one tree and it bears splendidly.
Then, in the matter of small
fruits, strawberries are peked, he
says, as large as eggs. These never
reach Prince Rupert because the demand is too great on the ground.
Speaking of the demand, Mr. Stuart
says he sells all his apples by the
bucket right in the orchard to those
employed on the railway construction. He gets about 8% cents a
pound for them, which is certainly
a  good  price.
As to the future of fruit growing
in that part of the Skeena, Mr. Stuart has no doubt. It will be a rich
producer and will attract many settlers. The area adapted to the
growing of fruit is quite large, so
that there is room for all comers.
Resolution Condemning it Fails to Pass
the House of Commons at
Charges   Made  in    Connection   with
the Appointment of Census Commissioners ill Manitoba
(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, May 16.—In the house
yesterday Wm. D. Staples, of Mac-
Donald, moved that "In the selection
and the appointment of public officers the government is exercising a
public trust and should be guided by
considerations of the character and
capacity of the person whom it is
proposed to appoint. That the delegation of such public trust to the
local party committee or organizer
is a public scandal and deserves the
censure of the house."
Mr. Staples and other members of
the Opposition cited glaring instances where political influences
were at work in connection with the
census organization, especially in
Hon. Sydney Fisher's reply made a
general denial of the charges, although he admitted that the commissioners and enumerators who
were appointed were selected on the
recommendation of the party supporters.
The resolution was defeated on a
straight party vote.

(Special to The Journal)
VANCOUVER, May 16.—Two men
met instant death within a few seconds of each other Sunday at the
corner of Robson and Bidwell. The
victims were Charles Dubrau, an
expressman, said to be In the employ
of the Vancouver Transfer Company,
and Tom Costello.
Dubrau had been called to move a
trunk to a residence near the corner
mentioned and was passing around
the wagon when his head came in
contact with a wire dangling from a
pole. He commenced to fall. Costello, who appears to have been
passing within a few feet, rushed to
the other's assistance and caught
hold of him by the shoulders. Both
fell to the ground together and lay
A third man ran to the assistance
of both and received a shock that
disabled him.
The wire was disengaged from Du-
brau's head and several people carried the men toward the sidewalk.
The first two were, however, dead.
The wire which Dubrau's head had
struck was a lead messenger cable,
which had not lately been used. The
upped end of the wire had come in
contact with a 2,000 volt wire of the
lighting circuit. The lower end
dangled within five feet of the

Aldermen    Call    for    Hedurtion    in
Rentals for 'Phones—Committee Will Look into Matter
The council last evening received
its first monthly reports with respect
to the cost, etc., of the electric light-
lighting system and the telephone
service. Superintendent Love's report on the telephone system for
April, showed that the month opened
with 393 phones in service and
closed with 411 In use, a gain of 18
during the month.
The net revenue during April had
been $1,469, while the operating expenses were $674.31, showing a surplus of $794.69.
For March there had been 340
phones at the start and »eei at the
close of the month.

been $1,372.50, while the operating
expenses were $660, leaving a net
gain of $703.50.
His Worship said the report wa9
very gratifying.
Aid. Hilditch suggested that in
private houses the phones might be
cut to $1.25 a month. It would be
made up, he believed in the numbei
used. He did not think that the
present citzeins should pay for future phones.
Aid. Clayton called attention to
the fact that he had taken a stand
during election time against the
present users of the phone providing
for extensions. He did not believe
that the extensions should be paid
for out of profits.
Aid. Morrissey thought there were
two sides to this. Those who were
not liable to use the phones should
not have to pay for the phones as
was suggested.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that the
cost came out of the users who provided for sinking fund.
Aid. Douglas was in favor of
phone reductions. He did not see
why a reduction should not be made.
His Worship thought that as this
was the first report received, it
would be wise to postpone any action
in the way of reductions until the
committee could look into it. There
were other expenses such as collecting and fixed charges that should be
Aid. Douglas moved that the committee look into the matter with a
view to seeing if a reduction could
not be made.
Aid. Smith referred to the fact
that the committee had been long
endeavoring to get these monthly reports. It would be well to await
further information before taking
any decided step.
The motion of Aid. Douglas carried.
Electric Lighting
The other municipally owned utility did not show the same gratifying
results. Superintendent Love's report showed that for March the receipts were $867.13 and the operating expenses $1,068.40, showing a
deficit of  $201.27.
In April the net revenue was
$937.38, while the operating expenses were $1,136.50, showing a
deficit of  $99.18.
Aid. Hilditch said that he did not
regard the light proposition In the
same way as the telephone. It was
not expected that the lighting would
be a paying proposition as long as
it was operated by steam. He felt
that when a cheaper power was obtained the deficit now incurred
should be charged up against the
scheme to be paid for.
Aid.  Hilditch  Returns to Council in
an  Inquisitive  Mood—Aid.
Douglas 'I'iikcs His Place
The council last evening welcomed
Aid. Hilditch back after a long illness and had also the pleasure of
welcoming a brand new member in
the person of Aid. Douglas who took
his seat for the first time.
In opening the meeting, His Worship said he wished to extend to Aid.
Douglas hearty congratulations on
his election to the council board. He
announced that he would name Aid.
Douglas as a member of the streets
committee, taking the place of Aid.
Kerr  who  had  been  acting on  this.
His Worship also welcomed Aid.
Hilditch back to duty.
Aid. Hilditch said it afforded him
pleasure to be again back to duty.
Aid. Douglas ushered in his term
of office in a very modest way. He
appeared to be there to learn, but
he promises surprises before his
term is out.
Aid. Hilditch has returned apparently with renewed energy. He
made it evident last night that he
had some radical moves to make.
Ho .took exception to the way in
which the contractors were blocking
the streets. There were no reasons
why they should not in many cases
keep the streets open to traffic while
the grading proceeded. He was going to go over the whole section and
take steps to have the contractors
live up to the requirements in this
On Third avenue there was no
reason why the roadway should not
have been lowered long ago, so as to
allow traffic. •'■
He also moved that a special com
mitte be appointed to report upon
the S. P. McMordie contracts. He
wanted information as to why, when
three section of work were let, there
was only one contract entered into;
also why $1.90 for rock and 80 cents
for earth were accepted, although
not the lowest tender; also why R.
A. McMordie's tender was rejected,
although lower than others, and the
deposit returned when contract not
entered into.
In support of this Aid. Hilditch
said he had sought the information
last year and could get no satisfactory answer. He was determined to
find out the facts. These contractors were asking for an extension of
time. The information to be gained
would have a bearing upon the extension of time.
It was all very well to say that the
city was not losing by the extension
of time. Perhaps the city council
was not losing, but private citizens
who were being kept out of premises
they paid good rents for were losing.
The motion carried and the mayor
named as a committee the streets
committee with Aid. Clayton and
Aid. Kerr added.

At an enthusiastic meeting of citizens in the court house on Saturday
evening, it was decided to celebrate
.May 24 in a fitting way. Special attention will be given to the children's branch of the celebration.
Committees were appointed, with
the mayor as a member, ex-officio, of
each. These committees are as follows:

There will be a general meeting
tomorrow evening, to which the public are invited.
Many People are Interested in the New City and Their
Promises to be a Large Influx of Prospective
Investors During the Coming
This city is to receive a large influx of prospective investors this
summer. This is the Verdict of all
who have recently visited on the outside and have had an opportunity to
test public opinion. The city is improving every day and before many
weeks pass the strangers who come
here will have an opportunity to see
just what the streets are going to
look like when completed.
Every visitor now expresses admiration for the way in which the citizens are grappling with the question of improvements.
C. D. Rand, of Vancouver, who
had charge of the original sale ol
lots in the townsite, was a visitor
this week with a party of Vancouvei
business men who looked over tho
ground with the ultimate object of
investing here.
Mr. Rand is as enthusiastic as ever
over the prospects of the place. He
says that on the outside investors
are keenly alive to the great advantages which this place possesses as
the centralizing mart for the whole
of Alaska as well as the northern
part of the province of British Columbia. It is recognized that this
trade in itself will mean the building
up of an immense city. The result
is going to be that before the railway
reaches completion ' that farseeing
business men are going to be established in trade here and prepared to
take the fullest advantages of what
is to offer.
Mr. Rand was delighted to.see the
progress that was being made in
bringing the city into shape. He ad
vises furthering the work of prep
aration for the vast population that
is to come.
Another opinion worth considera
tion is that of John Christiansen who
has just got back from a visit to
North Dakota. He says that all were
anxious to know about the place and
the vast interior of this northern
part of the province. He expects to
see many come here this summer fof
the purpose of looking into conditions for themselves and preparing
for the investments that they are
prepared to make. As a result of
this there is likely to be an impetus
given to real estate and greater activity should follow than has been
in evidence since the sale.
Dr. Melntyre has returned to the
city more than ever satisfied with
his investments here. After spending the winter in California with
Mrs. Melntyre, Mr. and Mrs. M.
Bondeaux, he has returned lo Prince
Rupert convinced that there Is a
wonderful future for the place.
During his stay in the south he
says that he found everyone anxious
to learn about this wonderful city in
the north. All had heard of It but
wanted exact information about it.
Moreover, all were convinced that it
had a great future and this in itself
means a great deal for the city. The
doctor is convinced that the city
should have more literature to distribute. This need not be of an
expensive character, but should carry facts about the place. As an instance of the way in which information relative to it is seized upon, Dr.
Melntyre tells of placing in the big
II. S. Grant hotel in San Diego, a
number of the folders advertising
the city, When he returned he
found them all gone and the man
told him that they were greedily
taken by men of large means who
were in the hotel and were always
alive lo the opportunities of trade.
After studying conditions in the
south and the factors that have gone
to build up cities there, he is convinced that there Is nothing that
ran prevent this place becoming one
of the greatest business centres on
the  continent.
Many Questions Affecting the Roadway
Brought Before City Council
Last Nignt.
Temporary Planking on Second Ave-
nue Gives Trouble to the
The city council last evening, at
its regular weekly meeting, had a lot
of propositions relative to the streets
and sewers to deal with. Many of
these came up on reports received
by the streets committee from tne
A petition was received asking for

which it was set fortli the necessity

This was referred  to the    streets
Plank  on  Centre Street
A reply was received to ;t quea-
tion put by Aid. Newton at the last
meeting relative to the planking of
Centre street. The streets committee reported that a conference had
had been held with Mr. Mehan, the
general superintendent of tlie Grand
Trunk Pacific. He was not agree-
ible to taking any action until the
irrlval of .Mr. Chamberlin, (he general manager. In tlie meantime, the
committee recommended that the existing arrangement be continued by
which the Grand Trunk Pacific provided tlie lumber and hauled it while
the city laid it.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that the
Grand Trunk Pacific did not haul
the lumber in practice. Tlie street
needed attention, lie thought that
while the city should try to act It

decked, tlie freight would have to
remain on the (hand Trunk  Pacific
James Cronin the Well Known Mining

The presence of James Cronin, one
of the best-known silver-lead mining
men in the northwest, on his way
to the interior of the province at this
early stage of the season is an Indication that there is to be an active
year in the district. Mr. Cronin is
not a talker. He seldom reveals
much concerning his plans. There
is never any fireworks in connection
with his movements, but he does not
move much without there hieing
something to offer.

Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Will
Likely be Converted to
That System.
One Advantage Will Re the Preser.
vation of tlie Forests of the
Country Traversed
The Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Railway Commission has arranged to purchase for $250,000 the
Nipissing Central Railway, an electrical road. One advantage of this
transaction will be that the Kerr
Lake branch, the Haileybury spur,
and the New Liskeard spur of the
T. & N. O. can all be electrified.
This is regarded as in reality but a
step towards the ultimate electrification of the entire T. & N. O. system, a scheme which was advanced
by the commission some years ago.
It is understood that the purchase
carries with it the control of the
water power at High Falls.
The charter of the Nipissing Central is for a line connecting Cobalt,
Haileybury and New Liskeard, and
running along the north end of Lake
Nipissing to the Quebec border. At
present the road runs from Cobalt
to Haileybury, and it has been quite
a competitor with the T. & N. 0.
line. The acquisition of the line by
the Government road will put the
latter in a position to discontinue
the running of some eight trains a
The proposal to electrify the
whole of the T, & N. O. road owes
a great deal to the foresight and energy of the chairman of the commission, Mr. J. L. Englehart, who has
been very active in gathering data
on which to base the plans for carrying that idea into effect. The acquisition of the Nipissing Central Is
a distinct step in that direction. Several years ago reports on this phase
of development were obtained by the
Commission. At that time the cost
of electrifying the whole road was
estimated at about a million dollars,
but since then a great many extensions have been built.
The object in substituting electrical for steam power as the motive
force was perhaps manly to preserve
the forests in the Temagami region.
It was also considered that the elimination of the smoke and cinder
nuisance would conduce materially
to the comfort and therefore to the
extent of tourist travel. The development of electrical power for the
operations of that part of Ontario.
The numerous waterfalls will make
the problem of cost an important
one, as it will be much cheaper to
use electricity than coal.
The gradual carrying into effect,
therefore, of this long-cherished
purpose of the Commission to utilize
Nature's lavish gifts of water powers
for the operation of railroads will
uead to a much wider extension ot
their lines throughout the northern
portion of the Province than would
otherwise be possible, and so will
bring about a more complete development of New Ontario, enabling its
resources to be reached and brought
out, and takin gsettlers in to till its
rich agriculaural areas.
The Nipissing Central Railway
was built and owned for some time
by Cleveland interests. These recently sold the road to a syndicate
composed of Mr. Alexander Fasken
and other gentlemen. They have
been developing power on tlie Montreal River, and have an interest in
High Falls, which Is in that neighborhood. There are a number of
other falls, such as Fountain, North
and Mattawabeka Falls, from each of
which a sufficient head of power
could be generated to run many
miles of railway or (o operate vast
industrial enterprises.
THhere was an effort made last
year by the Temiskaming & Northern Ontario to get into Haileybury.
They could not get an entrance from
the south, owing to the heavy grade
that would be necessary, so they ran
their line north of Hie (own, and
were aboul to run a spur, 1.04 miles
long, down to the wharf, where the
industries are congregated, but were
prevented by an injunction.
The date of taking possession by
tho T. & N. O. Commision of the line
just acquired has not yet been announced, but it is likely that not
much time will be allowed to elapse,
now that negotiations have been successfully conducted, before the transfer is effected.
Lloyds Bank announces that It has
arranged to unite with the banking
of .Messrs. Hill and Sons at West
Smithfield, Islington, Doptford, Liverpool, Birkenhead, Romford and
elsewhere. The entire staff of Hill
and Sons will be retained in the
service of Lloyds Bank.
Active Steps Being Taken to Plant Scandinavian in parts of British
Dominion   and    Provincial   Governments Arc Being Asked to Cooperate  in  Work
A big colonization scheme is at
present in its intial stage, but when
preliminaries are concluded it Is expected that arrangements will be
made to bring to this province many
hundreds of the best class of Scandinavians and Danes. The man who
is working to bring about this immigration is Mr. Bert T. Holm, formerly agricultural editor of the Standard and La Argentina, Buenos Ayres.
Mr. Holm has been in Vancouver
and Victoria. He has placed his
scheme before both the Dominion
and Provincial Governments. The
Premier, Hon. Richard McBride, referred him to Hon. Dr. Young, provincial secretary, and while the latter expressed his sympathy with the
object, he said he thought it was a
little premature to stamp government approval upon it because the
country had not yet been opened up
by additional railway facilities when
the Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern came right through
to their respective Pacific Coast terminals.
Mr. Holm is now engaged in communication with Sir Thomas Shaugh-
nessy. Sir William Mackenzie and
C. M. Hays, the heads of the three
big Canadian railroads. Providing
he can gain their influence to aid
him in his colonization scheme, he
feels he will then be able to approach the government fof a subsidy.
In his letter to Sir Wilfrid Laurier
in which he outlined his scheme, Mr.
Holm said in part: "I know that
results would soon follow; for where
can the Danish farmer, dairyman,
poultryman and fruit grower find a
better sphere of activity than in the
Dominion of Canada; where can the
Norwegian fisherman and lumberman obtain better conditions or reap
greater harvest from the seas, 'akes
and forests, and where can the
Swedish miner, woodman and agricultural worker find a better home,
when the confines of little Scandinavia become too narrow? And
where can the Dominion of Canada
expect to find a class of settlers better adapted for the climate, conditions and work?"
The fiords of Norway or the entrance to Rio de Janeiro could not
be considered so splendid as British
Columbia, according to Mr. Holm.
He said that he was greatly impressed with Britisii Columbia and
Canada in general, the vastness of
the prairies and the grandeur of the
scenery especially appealing to him.
He contends that his scheme is entirely feasible, to say the least. The
country needs settlers and the type
of Scandinavian and Dane he proposes to bring to these shores would
be a credit to any community. It
was well known that the Scandinavians got on harmonious! with the
Anglo-Saxon race, for their religions
and customs were about the same.
Furthermore, the settlers he would
locate in British Columbia would be
those who had ready cash and therefore in a position to buy land almost
immediately upon arrival and commence farming right away.

When the fishing steamer Flamingo, Captain Freeman, docked at the
New England Fish Company's wharf
with 250,000 pounds of halibut last
evening, a new record for a week's
catch was created, almost a million
pounds of halibut being received by
the New England Fish Company and

week, says the News-Advertiser. The
exact total of pounds was 995,000.
A wireless report recieved by the

Kingfisher brought the largest catch
ever received In Vancouver, with
one exception.
Nine hundred and ninety-five
thousand pounds of halibut have
been recived by the company during
the past week, and prospects point
to a catch of over a million pounds
next week. The efefcts of the enormous catches has been to reduce
the price of halibut about 100 per
cent in a week.

The only Nain Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners In the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that It has any Interest in any other
main line towsite in British Columbia.    Does that start you thinking?
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison Is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact Is a very important one for conservative Investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the hub
ef the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very Inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
Investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were doing when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity of Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be. feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Gland Trunk Pacific has put its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
believe the company will do as much
for townsites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison. If
you desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
STUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order class with his wares. ELLISON is in the Missouri class. Therefore, I am not telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that can be readily verified.
STUDY     THAT     MAP.—If     you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,,    then , you
should put your money Into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not interested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with the exception of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. You may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is  now   being  opened  up,   and   for
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both by rail and water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townblte. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and *<:50 for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the
balance on easy terms;  no interest.

Some   of   the   Trying   Work   Which
Fulls to the Task of the
A quiet, old-fashioned house is
hidden away amid the maze of great
banks and solid commercial offices
in the financial heart of the city, off
Old Jewry. Few of the thousands
of hurrying business men who pass
it daily on their way from Cheapside
to Gresham street spare a second
glance at the old residence which
seems to slumber at the bottom of
a narrow paved court yard—once a
rose garden—approached by a heavy
gateway. They do not ponder the
romance and drama concealed behind the wide windows of this old-
world residence, which was formerly
the peaceful home of some merchant
prince and is now s the "Scotland
Yard" of the city, says the London
It is the official headquarters of
the city police, and here are now centered the organization and control of
the greatest murder hunt in civic
history—the long search for "Peter,
the Painter," and the other members
of the widespread gang of anarchists
who planned the Houndsditch outrage. For two months now, day and
night, without ceasing, from the moment of the first hurried midnight
telephone message from Bishopsgate
police station telling of the murders,
and of the escape of the assassins,
that chase has been continued.
There will be no rest for the city
detectives until the last link is fitted
in Its place In the chain that wllf
connect the guilty with the crime,
and the past eight weeks have perhaps been the most anxious that any
police force has ever known.
Ever Alert
The Scotland Yard of the city Is
awake and active every hour of the
twenty-four. John Stark, the chief
superintendent, lives at the Old Jew
ry headquarters, with a staff of
armed men within instant call, ready
to start out at any moment of the
night for an anarchist hunt should
the news be brought that one of
the wanted men has been located.
Superintendent Ottaway, the head
of the city detective force, has his
quarters at Cloak-lane police station
close by and although at night the
city, with its hoards of millions in
bullion and treasure, is deserted by
the owners and makers of its waelth,
the captains of the army of city policemen, in whose safe custody the
square miles of riches is left, never
sleep away from their duties.
Sir John Nott-Bower, the grey
mustached commissioner of the city
police, is the head of a thousand constables and detectives, chosen for
their fine physiques and smartness,
and experienced as they are in safeguarding nignt after night, wealth
beyond the dreams of avarice from
the covetous hands of the burglar,
they have never before been called
to undertake such a baffling hunt in
an alien underworld outside the city
From first to last this has complicated their task at every step and
Chief Inspector Wensley, of the metropolitan police, in whose White-
chapel district the chase has been
hottest, has been working with them |
day and night as well. So, Inch by
Inch, witness by witness, and arrest
by arrest, the city police have slowly
but surely unraveled the tightest
knot that alien criminals have yet
tied for them.
The Typical  Detective
The typical city detective is a well-
groomed, gentlemanly fellow, suggesting the prosperous solicitor's
managing clerk rather than the
broad-shouldered, heavy-footed policeman of popular fancy. He Is accustomed to deal with complicated
cases of forgery and the technique of
commercial crime rather than with
the desperate armed murderer speaking an alien tongue. But the Old
Jewry detectives have adapted themselves swiftly to the novel and dangerous  role  required of  them.
Chief Inspector Willis—remembered In the city as the man who
brought Whitaker Wright    back to
justice—and his colleagues of the
detective department, have proved
that they are a match for men of
muscle as well as men of brain. They
have kept mysterious midnight vigils
in the east end disguised in a fashion
that would bring suspicion on them
at once if they entered a city bank
during business hours. Silk hats,
frock coats and gloves have been
abandoned, and in one case a fail
mustache was sacrificed, so that,
with caps, mufflers, shabby coats
and unshaven chins, they could mingle unsuspected in the Stepney and
Mile End streets, where Anarchists
wanted for information they could
supply and talk wtih them unknowingly.
Exciting Work
One trim city detective, the pride
of Guildhall and Mansion House receptions when in evening dress, wandered the Commercial road for three
nights, as the most disreputable of
"navvies," so that his blackened face
and buckled trousers might awaken
confidence among those he watched.
It has been dangerous and exciting
work, with the memory of Hounds-
ditch and Sidney street   still    fresh,

each watcher has kept a loaded six-
shooter handy in a back pocket.
Meanwhile all the other city police
work, never light at any time, has
gone on without interruption, in
spite of this heavy Houndsditch burden. Anarchists may shoot, and assassins may plot, but the city traffic
must be dealt with, and so the detectives have worked twenty hours or
so a day, and many of them have not
taken off their boots for nights together.
The funeral of three murdered
city policemen, with its impressive
service in St. Paul's cathedral, and
the mournful procession, which held
up all the traffic in the busiest city
in the world at the busiest hour of
uie day, was controlled and arranged from the Old Jewry headquarters at a time when all the
police resources were strained to
their utmost. The chief arteries of
the city had to be kept clear of traf
fic for the passing of this funeral,
and a thousand and one details had
to be considered. The progress of a
monarch to tne Guildhall is a small
matter compared with this task, and
a thousand and one traffic complications had to be considered, for
from Bishopgate without to Ludgate
hill every motor omnibus, taxicab,
van and foot passenger had to be
held up until the funeral had passed
and the last wail of Chopin's Dead
March had died away. The slightest
mistake would have meant an extra
loss of thousands of pounds in time
and money, but Superintendent
Nicholls, the head of the uniformed
branch of the police, who arranged
it without a hitch, was for that hour
"king of the city."

which a spirit of optimist has, not
only in the individual business but in
the matter of communities, It has
always played an important part and
will remain a potent feature in the
progress of cities.
We do not wish to conv y the impression that cities can be built on
nothing but optimism. Cities can be
kept back materially by the pessimism of its individuals, however.
Prince Rupert has always had its enthusiasts and they are continuing to
carry on the good work which must
follow the spirit which they show.
Prince Rupert has advantages in
the way of natural position. It has
also had the advantage of the pub
licity which went with the locating
of the place as the terminus of such
a line as the Grand Trunk Pacific.
This will always remain as features
to be counted upon. Its citizens are
called upon to supplement these factors and the place will be the best on
the coast.

Ited Cliff Mine at Stewart Has Been
Floated in London—Control
Is  Canadian
What is probably the most important announcement in mining circles
in Portland Canal, made since the
first of the year is that from Vancouver to the effect that the Red
Cliff Mining Company, Ltd., has
been successful in floating on the
London market the company's stock,
though the control has been left entirely in the hands of the Canadian
shareholders. The importance of this
announcement lies in the fact that
London capital interested in mining
ventures has at last etered the camp
in a most substantial manner. Undoubtedly the credit for securing this
interest is due to the excellent work
of Director A. D. Tennant, in placing
the property before English investors. A. Erskine-Smith, president
of the company, has developed the
Red Cliff mine largely on western
capital, and It is satisfactory to recall the splendid achievements of the
past two years when an undeveloped
prospect has been successfully
brought to its present stage through
his untiring efforts. Mr. Smith, who
is the largest individual shareholder,
will remain at the head of the company.
VICTORIA—he customary annual
notices with respect to hunting and
fishing licenses for non-residents of
the province have just been issued
from the provicial game department.
The fees prescribed are: For general license, good for one year, to
c ver all game and fish that may be
taken under existing laws and regulations, $100; spring bear hunting
license, good from January 1 to July
14, $25; birds, season, $50; anglers'
license, good for one year, $5.
Licenses may be taken out at the
office of the provincial game warden or that of any government
agent. It is expected that a greater
number of game licenses will this
year be issued than in any previous
year in provincial history. Already
many anglers' and bear hunters'
licenses have been issued.
T. D. Pattullo, now of Victoria, is
expected back on Sunday. He will
spend a few days here on business.

The streets committee reported on
the matter of the petition against

that eighty-one property owners
were affected by the walk. Of those
who objected only nine were property owners. It was recommended
that the work be not stopped.

The committee recommended that
after inspecting the place, that the
electric sign at the Proenix Theatre
be allowed provided it was placed
not more than eight feet over the

that it was badly needed. It was
suggested that wood pipe -now on

sewer could be installed.
The report was adopted.
l'lank Road on Second
The streets committee recommended that the engineer be allowed
to use the planks on Second avenue
as a means for providing a way to
get along from Seventh to Eighth
streets. This was necessary as a
means for allowing apparatus to
pass along in case of fire. It was
recommended that the owners pay
for the cost of laying the plaiik.
Aid. Kerr wanted to know if the
contractors were obliged to keep the
street open.
Aid. Newton did not see why the
owners should be put to the expense
of this work.
Aid. Hilditch did not believe the
proposed plan would give the fire
protection asked for.
Aid. morrissey said he had visited
the place and some such proceeding
was necessary.
It was finally referred to the
streets committee and the engineer
to do the best possible.
In connection with a subsection of
work where the contractor asked an
extension of time, the engineer did
not think the declaration should be
enforced. It was decided to extend
the time 16  days.

Captain George Robertson of   Prince
George Will Succeed Captain
Gaudin at Victoria.
Well-Knoivn  Skipper of  This  Coast
Will Soon Quit His Com.
Captain George Roberson, master
of the Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Prince George, will soon retire from
active service on the sea and devote
himself to the duties of agent of
the marine and fisheries department
on the coast, with headquarters in
Victoria. He is to succeed Captain
James Gaudin in that position. The
latter will be identified with the department as commissioner of wrecks.
Captain Robertson expects to
make several more trips north before he Is called upon to assume his
new duties. The skipper of the
Prince George is well known on the
coast. His many friends here will
be glad to learn of his promotion to
a position he should serve most acceptably.
When only a lad Captain Robertson came to this coast from his native land, Scotland, with his father,
Captain H. J. Robertson, of Moresby Island, and lived in Victoria for
some time. Shortly after arriving
here Captain Robertson's father decided to commence ranching, but
ueorge, after pursuing a farmer's
life for a short time, felt that it was
not the occupation which he should
follow, and decided to go to sea.
He left his home at the age of
15 and Joined one of the local sealing schooners as a deckhand. For
several seasons he signed on different vessels bound for the hunting
grounds, with the hope that he
might accumulate a little money, as
the industry at that time paid handsomely. When serving on the
schooner Agnes McDonald under
Captain Cutler,' of the tug Lome,
Captain Robertson was shipwrecked
on the Japanese coast, the only time
he has had that experience in his
After serving his time before the
mast Captain Robertson joined the
old Canadian Pacific Navigation
Company, of which F. W. Vincent,
now of the Canadian Pacific Railway, was manager, as quartermaster
of the ill-fated steamer Islander,
commanded by Captain John Irving,
making the first trip to Skagway In
her In 1897. He was later quartermaster on the steamer Danube
now the Salvor, of the Britisii Columbia Salvage Company. From
that position he went as second
mate on the well-known side-wheeler
Princess Louise, in command of Captain A. A. Sears. For some time he
held similar positions on different
C. P. N. boats, until he was promoted to chief oldcer on the steamer
Danube, under Captain McCroskie
and served in that capacity until appointed as pilot, serving on the. triangular and Skagway runs under
Captains Griffiths, Hickey, McLeod
and Jos. Grosse, on nearly every vessel in the C. P. N. .fleet.
The excellent manner in which
Captain Robertson discharged his
duties and his remarkable knowledge of the coast was recognized by
the C. P. R., which company he
joined when the C. P. N. was taken
over by it, and he was soon appointed master of the steamer Queen City
on the east coast run.    On leaving
the service of the company to become master of the Prince George,
on her arrival from England, Captain Robertson was master of the
Princess Beatrice on the Prince Rupert run.
After spending over twenty years
at sea, the greater part of which he
put in on ships sailing up and down
this coast. Captain Robertson Is
acknowledged as one of the best,
most careful and best-informed of
the navigators of British Columbia.
There is no rock or dangerous point
in these waters which he does not
know, and his appointment is one
which will be received with satisfaction.
The fishery protection steamer
Kestrel was in port for the week
end taking on coal. Captain New-
combe had made a cruise up the
coast, taking the outside passage,
keeping a sharp lookout for poachers
off the coast of Vancouver Island,
as well as elsewhere along the coast.
He reported that the sealing fleet
from Victoria were passed, several of
the schooners operating just off the
city of Prince Rupert. In addition
to these there were two Japanese
sealing schooners sighted off the
coast near the city.
The reports were that the vessels
were having a good season. The
captain of the Jessie had been
aboard the Kestrel a few days before and reported that the seals were
very plentiful. Two days catch was
reported as 37 and 53, respectively.
The captain said the seals were as
plentiful as in the old days when
such large profits were made out of
the industry.
Rev.    D.    R.    McLean    Will    Take
Charge of the Presbyterian
Church at Hazelton
At the Presbyterian Church service here on Sunday, Rev. D. R. McLean was ordained a minister of the
church, preparatory to his entering
upon his pastorate at Hazelton. The
ceremony was performed by Rev.
J. S. Henderson, who was assisted by
Rev. F. W. Kerr.
• Rev. Mr. Henderson, the moderator, preached excellent sermons during the day, leaving on Monday
morning again  for the south.
Well Known Entertainer Paid
Visit to the City This
He  Is   Enthusiastic   Over   Hazelton
and Will Return to That Centre in n Few Days
Among the arrivals on the Sunday evening steamer from Hazelton
was Dr. L. M. Slocum, so well known
to the city. Doctor left Monday
morning for Victoria. He Is accompanying the remains of "Jimmy"
McDonald to his old home in the
capital, where they will be interred.
Dr. Slocum is a booster. He was
such for Prince Rupert while he
was here and he has still unbound-
ing faith in the place. He, however,
has decided to make Hazelton his
headquarters and is going to continue to do business there. Going in
last fall to organize an aerie of the
order of Eagles, with the intention
of getting back to Prince Rupert before the river navigation closed, he
became enamored of the place. The'
result was that he made his home
there and will continue to do so. He
has secured land and will go into
small fruits and vegetables. Moreover, so convinced is the doctor of
the posibilities that he has decided
to become a full-fledged Canadian,
and will take the first steps toward
naturalization at once.
In the home of strawberries and
other small fruits and also in vegetables, he is convinced that the Hazelton district is a leader. On the present trip south Dr. Slocum is taking
to Vancouver and Victoria for exhibition vegetables grown last year
and which are a standing testimonial to the productiveness of the district. Parsnips, turnips, carrots and
potatoes are all included in the collection.
Although Dr. Slocum had only a
few hours in the city, he employed
his time well, renewing old acquaintances, seeing as many of the local
Eagles and other friends as could
be found in the limited time.
Party  of  Surveyors  Has  Gone  into

They have gone up the Skeena to
Hazelton and will then make their
way down to their destination. The
party is one which is working under
J.   H.  Gray,  of Victoria.
T. C. Birnie, Mrs. Birnie and family left yesterday for the south.
They will take up their residence in
Vancouver or New Westminster for
a time. Mr. Birnie has interests in
the prairie provinces to look after
and will devote considerable time
to that. He expects to return to
Prince Rupert later.

Contract  Has Been Let for the
Structure Upon Approved
Details   of   the   Cost   and   Style of
Work to Be Constructed
The announcement was made recently by the Hon. George P. Graham, minister of railways and canals, in the commons, that a contract
had been let to the St. Lawrence
Bridge Company for the construction
of the superstructure of the Quebec
bridge, at $8,650,000. This, with
the contract already let for the substructure, makes a total of about
♦ 12,000,000. The bridge is on the
line of the Transcontinental Railway, where it crosses the St. Lawrence River near Quebec, and will
be the largest cantilever bridge in
the world, the suspension span being the longest single truss span
ever designed, exceeding that of the
celebrated Forth bridge, Scotland,
by 90 feet. In working out the design Mr. Graham has had in consultation a commissio nof the world's
most expert bridge engineers, whose
work has extended ove ra period of
two and a half years.
This will be tne only bridge over
the St. Lawrence River east of Montreal, and will be used by the Transcontinental Railway and any other
roads that may require it. It is expected that the bridge will be ready
for traffic by 1915. The St. Lawrence Bridge Company, which succeeded in competition with German
British and United States firms, is
a purely Canadian company, comprising the Dominion Bridge Com
pany, of Montreal, and the Canadian
Bridge Company, Walkerville, Ont
The design which has been adopted will have K web system in the
cantilever and anchor arms. The
suspended span is of a modified
Pratt type. The length of the centre span is to be 1,800 feet. The
total length of the structure is 3,228
feet, or about three-fifth of a mile.
The suspended span is 640 feet long,
110 feet deep at the centre and 70
at each end. The cantilever arms
are 580 feet long, 70 feet deep at
the end and 310 feet high over the
main post. The anchor arms are
520 feet long. The width of the
bridge between the trusses is 88 feet.
The brideg will be 150 feet above
high water. The depth of the water
in the centre of the river is 200 feet.
Ail members in the anchor arms and
those immediately over the main
le'er, as well as the floor arms, will
be Ij'iilt of carbon steel. The cantilever arms and suspended span will
be of nickel steel.
The piers are all to be built of
cement concrete below water, and
granite faced masonry filled with cement concrete above water. The
abutments are to be of granite masonry. The caisson over the main
pier on the south side will be 180
feet by 55 feet. The north side will
be built in two sections, each caisson
being 65 feet long by 60 feet wide.
The bridge will accommodate a
double track railway, and will have
a four-foot sidewalk on each side for
foot passengers. There are over
100,000 cubic yards of masonry in
the piers and abutments. The weight
of steel in the superstructure is estimated at 100,000,000 pounds. The
transportation of this Immense
quantity of steel will require the
use of 1,677 freight cars of 60,000
pounds capacity, or 67 trains of 25
cars each.

There is little doubt, in his opinion, but that for many years to come
there will be ample funds available
in London for all kinds of legitimate
enterprises in British Columbia. As
regards Port Mann, the intention of
the Canadian Northern Railway waa
to hold the sale in the fall, and this
arrangement would be adhered to,

The crew of H. M. S. Shearwater,
which has returned from a trip to
the Spanish coast, have an interesting story to tell of a former Inhabitant of the Galapagos Island, visited
by the sloop—a king he was. He
was a redheaded Irishman and his
name was Patrick Watkins before he
became King Patrick, as he after
ward called himself, and he made
subjects of some whalers who landed there. He is said to have been
responsible a century ago for the inauguration of the sea postoffice, that
being the way devised by one sea
captain to warn others of the pres
ence of King Pat. He was a deserter
from a whaler, which called for water at Charles Island. His habitation has since been known as Pat's
Passage. He built a hut in a valley
about two acres in eten't in the interior, the only place susceptible of
culture in his kingdom, where he
cultivated potatoes which he sold to
whaling ships. Dressed in rags and
his red beard tangled and filled with
briars, his appearance was that of
a wild man. He had an old musket
and some bullets and lived alone in
state among the turtles. His one desire was for brandy, for which he exchanged potatoes. Finally Pat became lonely one day when an American whaler put in for water and left
a negro in charge of the boat drawn
up on the beach, King Pat sallied
forth from a defile, captured the
negro and proceeded to draw him to
his hut in the valley. Before they
had gone far the colored man turned
the tables on the king and he was
dragged back and taken on board the
whaler, on which he was flogged,
handcuffed and taken ashore in that
condition, while his garden was destroyed. How long King Pat remained in that plight was not known
but he eventually freed himself, rebuilt his hut and restored his garden
and set out anew to capture slaves.
He watched different landing parties
and captured in all four seamen.
Then he conceived the plan of capturing a boat, and was surprised in
the act by the boat's crew. As a result of this the sea postoffice was established in 1908. Pat finally did
capture a boat and sailed away, leaving a letter in the sea postoffice,
which read:
"1 have demanded of ship captains to sell me a boat to escape from
this place, but they have always refused. Today when the opportunity
presented itself for me to get a boat
I took advantage of it. For a long
time I have struggled through hard
labor and pain to accumulate a small
fortune which might permit me to
live in comfortable circumstances,
and have several times been robbed
and maltreated, the last time by an
English captain, who not only Inflicted upon me a terrible punishment, but had the hardihood to rob
me of about ?500. Today, May 9,
1809, I am leaving for the Marquesas islands. Do not kill the old hen.
She's brooding now, and her chicks
should soon hatch."
King Patrick turned up later at
Guayaquil in Ecuador. He went to
Payta, according to a French biographer, and sought to make a Peru-,
vlan girl his queen. She consented
to return with him to his Island, but
alas for his plans King Pat got in
trouble with the authorities and was
caught hiding on board a vessel and
was jailed, dying in prison. Thus
did the reign of the first and only
king of the Galapagos come to an

* By John L Gilbert *
One Is often inclined to ask, Was
such and such a book the result of
sudden inspiration or was it the slow
p.roduct of laborious thought? We
are easily deceived in our estimate of
the toil bestowed upon certain works
seemingly easiest of achievement and
a short account of the methods of
the most celebrated writers njay go
far to confirm the opinion that nothing great and durable was produced
with ease.
Alluding to one of his ballads,
Goethe said: "Whole years of reflection are comprised in it, and I
made three or four attempts before I
could bring it to its present state."
The immortal poem of Dante, in
which both heaven and earth are
brought under tribute, involved immense application, which he says
kept him lean for many years. Johnson tells us, concerning Addison,
that he was so fastidious that he
would stop the press to insert a comma.
"The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" occupied the mind of
Gibbon for nearly a quarter of a century, and he wrote the first chapter
three times before he was satisfied
with it. His "Memoirs" were rewritten nine times before a satisfactory
production was made. Hume wrote
thirteen hours every day while preparing his "History of England."
Pope bestowed days over a couplet,
and would make corrections when
his manuscript was In the hands of
the printers. The poet Gray would
spend a month over a short copy of
verses, and Charlotte Bronta an hour
over a word.
Let Rousseau tell in his own
words of the labor his smooth and
lively style cost him. "My manuscripts blotted, scratched, Interlined
and scarcely legible, attest the trouble they cost me. There is not one
of them which I have not been
obliged to transcrlpe four or five
times before it went to press. Some
of my periods I have turned oe returned in my head for five or six
nights before they were fit to be put
to paper."
Lord Brougham rewrote the peroration in his plea for Queen Caroline, twenty times; Butler, his
"Analogy" twenty; and Burke, the
conclusion of his speech at the trial
of Warren Hastings, sixteen.
Sheridan, spontaneous and brilliant as were his achievements, apparently admitted to having given
serious and earnest attention to his
sparkling witticisms and charming
rhetoric. The characters of "The
School for Scandal" were altered and
recast time after time, and the
speeches put into the mouths of Sir
Peter and Lady Teazle were sifted
and reconstructed so much that
hardly a word remains of the matter as originally written..
Oliver Goldsmith, Miss Austen and
Fox were particularly anxious, and
even betrayed a morbid sensibility
as to the elegance of their style. Tom
Moore declared that he never expected to get credit for half* the toil expended on some of his airiest poems.
So tremendously hard did George
Eliot work on "Romola" that, to
quote her own words, she says: "I
began it a young woman—I finished
it an old woman." This is all the
better understood when it is known
that only seventeen months were occupied in writing it.
Somewhat similar was the remark
made by Montesquieu to a friend regarding a portion of his work: "You
will read it in a few hours, but I
assure you it cost me so much labor
that it has whitened my hair." The
literary productions of Kingsley are
the result of a powerful intensity
continued throughout his life. Taking very few holidays, he pursued
his work as if there was nothing else
In the world for the time being.
Charles Lamb frequently bemoaned
the great effort and trouble his
graceful periods cost him. Macaulay
was perpetually overworked by his
"history." In his journal appears
the melancholy passage: "I feel
quite oppressed with the weight of
the task." And so unnerved was he
just about this time that he could
no longer face the social efforts and
undergo the minute and continuous
observation to which he was subjected when on a visit to the city he represented in Parliament.
Many people have been struck
with the graphic descriptions of natural scenery and surroundings In the
works of William Black, but not
every one is aware of the manner in
which these well-nigh photographic
delineations were produced. He has
been known In boisterous, windy
weather to shut himself up In  the
forecastle of a yacht under full sail,
diligently working at his writing,
while the debris of the forecastle rattled around and the ropes whistled
above his head. The fidelity of
Bh.ck's descriptions is due to the
painstaking trascriptions penned at
a moment under all sorts of conditions.
Composing with the greatest difficulty, owing to an extreme fastidiousness,, which refused to be satisfied, Bryant wrote "Thanatopsis" a
hundred times, and even after publication he had a copy of the poem
with various changes from the published form.
Using a lead pencil, Longfellow
was accustomed to write very slowly,
and although extreme care was
given to his compositions In the Initial stages, it was, when finally completed, but a fragment of the original that remained. Thackeray for
an hour or two would scribble page
after page of manuscript, only to be
torn to pieces. In this curious manner he would put himself into a certain mood and then dash off a
dozen or more pages at a sitting,
this to be followed by correction and
■;ondensation. In "David Copper-
field" one can almost discern the
method of Dickens' work, when he
said, "Whatever I have tried to do
in my life, I have tried with all my
heart to do well; whatever I have
devoted myself to I have devoted
myself to it completely; In great
aims and in small I have always been
thoroughly in earnest. I have never
believed it possible that any natural
or improved ability can claim immunity from the companionship o(
steady, plain, hard-working qualities, and hope to gain its end." When
Lord Tennyson sat down to write he
gave strict orders that he should not
be disturbed on any account. In his
work he was deliberation personified, a single sentence sometimes occupying his mind for hours, and il
is alleged that the whole of the "Divine Tragedy" was rewritten after
the greater part of it was in type.
On one occasion a line of Tennyson's
was quoted in his presence as an
ilustration of a thought spontaneously and naturally expressed. The
Poet Laureate was overheard to remark: "I smoked a dozen cigars
over that line." Unsparing in his
corrections, manuscripts everywhere covered with erasures, whole
paragraphs frequently eliminated,
scarcely a page that Is not covered
with marks of revision—such are the
evidences which go to    prove    that
Emerson was a diligent, slow and
painstaking writer. "His apples
were sorted over and over again
until only the very rarest, the most
perfect were left. His essays were
consequently very slowly elaborated,
wrought out through days and
months and even years of anxious
Among the classical writers of
music, Handel, Haydn and Mozart
are accounted extremely careful com.
posers, but it is generally conceded
that Beethoven probably surpassed
all others in painstaking fidelity and
application. "Audacious and impassioned beyond every one, the moment he took his pen in hand he became the most cautious and hesitating of men. There Is hardly a bar
in his music of which it may not be
said with confidence that It was rewritten a dozen times." The sketchbooks shows that eighteen attempts
were made with the air "0 Hoff-
nung" In "Fidelio," and ten attempts
with the concluding chorus. Of
many of the brightest gems of opera,
the ideas as originally expressed,
are so trivial that ti would be Impossible to admit that they were Beethoven's, were it not that they are
in his own handwriting.
When the overseas mail contract
between Liverpool and Hongkong expired on April 26, thede was no announcement, but Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy went to England to order two boats In view of getting the
contract. The boats have never
been ordered, for the reason that the
oontract goes, not to the Canadian
Pacific, but to the Intercolonial and
Canadian Northern Railway combined,  says a despatch.
The Canadian Northern is Interested with Sir Thomas Trowbridge
In the Blacksod Bay project and
their ships will take the mails to
Halifax, tnence by the Intercolonial
to Montreal, thence by the Canadian
Northern to the coast.
The Canadian Northern Is planning great extensions In Montreal In
coectlo with this. For a long time
they have been looking for a terminal site and the rumor, which is
nto denied, is that the Jesuit church
and college site on Bluery street, at
the corner of Dorchester street, has
been bought by the Canadian Northern Railway.

He Will Locate New Aids to Navigation During the \isit to

Taking H. C. Killeen, district engineer, on a survey and inspection
trip to this port, Queen Charlotte
Islands and the west coast of Vancouver Island, the steamer Newing-
ton .Captain Barnes, of the marine
and fisheries department, is on her
way here. Her trip will be a very
lengthy one and she will be away
from Victoria for nearly three weeks,
during which time Mr. Killeen will
have selected several new sites for
The Newington is going north by
the inside passage and will make
her call at Prince Rupert, where Mr.
Killeen will inspect the new marine
depot, which is being erected there
by the Dominion Government. When
this is completed the steamer will
proceed to the Queen Charlottes,
where considerab'e work is to bo
done. It is the intention of the department to establish a beacon on
Rose Spit and the site for this aid to
navigation is to be selected.
While in the north .Mr. Killeen
will also survey the ground at Lan-
gara Island, where the government
will erect a new lighthouse of the
first order, being of the same class
as those at Triangle Island, Estevan
and Pachena. The matter of placing
a light there has occupied the attention of the marine department for
some time and at last they have been
instructed to have the work carried
out. This lighthouse will be of great
benefit to northern navigators who
lily the waters of Dixon's entrance.
It will have one of the largest and
most powerful lanterns on the coast
and will be visible for 60 miles at
sea, as it will be situated on a high
When the work on the Queen
Charlotte Islands is completed the
Newington will head southward foi
Triangle Island, where Mr. Killeen
will size up the conditions for the
betterment of the wireless station
there. He will then proceed to So-
lander Island, with a view of ascertaining the suitability of this place
as a site for the new light to be established in that vicinity. Solandei
Island occupies a splendid position
for a light house, the only drawback
being the difficulty of getting material to the top. If it Is not located
on Solander Island the lighthouse
will be built on Cape Cook, which
has already been surveyed by the
district engineer.
With the two new lights at Lan
gara Island and Solander Island, the
aids to navigation in British Columbia waters will be In a higher state
of perfection than ever before. On
the west coast of this Island the
chain of lights is equal to any In the
world, for no sooner Is a mariner
beyond the radius of one light than
he is within the radius of several
other lights. At present there are
three first order lights on the dangerous coast of this island, at Pachena, Estevan and Triangle, and with
another at Solander Island there will
be scarcely room for improvement.
Mr.   Killeen   states  that   the   Do
minion Government is keeping far
ahead of the requirements of the day
but that they are preparing for the
enormous amount of traffic which
will be witnessed by British Columbia ports on the opening of the Panama Canal. In order that there
may be no shipping disasters on the
coast when this rush is on, the government is now preparing a way out.
High Water
Those who have been in the interior predict very high    water    this
spring,  owing to the heavy  fall  ot
snow last winter.
Longshoremen's Hall
The local branch of the Longshoremen's Union has in contemplation a new headquarters in the city.
It is proposed to build a first-class
hall, with offices, etc.
I'aintiiig Contract
In reply to a call for tenders for
painting the police station, three bids
were received last night. They were
as follows: John Murdoff, $64;
Donaldson & Co., $112.50, and Seymour & Co., $126.50. The contract
was awarded to the first named.
Steel   Pipe
W. A. Letcher, of Vancouver, and
William Stewart, of Glasgow, representing the Stewart steel pipe factory, are in the city this week in
the interests of the firm they represent. They have shown the advantages of their pipe to the members
of the city council.
Question of Trial
At the council meeting last evening Aid. Douglas wanted to know if
the council had done anything in the
matter of having the strikers tried
here. It would mean quite an
amount to the city to have it done.
His Worship replied by asking the
correspondence read. He explained
that the council had not the power
to fix the place of trial. That was
something which rested with the attorney general's department.
Coals of Fire
Aid. Douglas proceeded last evening to heap coals of fire on the heads
of the newspapers of the city. He
has moved for steps being taken by
the council to ascertain upon what
terms the different papers will send
copies to the public libraries in the
coast cities. This, he believes would
ho a decided advantage to Prince
Rupert and Is one of the lessons
Aid. Douglas learned while on a trip
soutli. He took this step in spite of
the fact that none of the papers in
the city gave him the hearty support
in Hie bye-election that was merited.
City Hall Will He Manned hy Fewer
Officials in the Future
The committee charged with the
task of reorganizing the city hall
staff made a report last evening. The
report recommended that the city
assessor, who shall have charge of
all collections, shall have one assistant. The city clerk and the city
accountant will do their duties without assistance.
This will mean that the services of
two clerks In the city hall will be
dispensed with. One of these, J. A.
McMaster, tendered his resignation
last evening and this was accepted,
to take effect as soon as deemed
Indian  Nines  Near  Stewart Will Be

James Cronin Passes Judgment Upon
What    Promises    to    Be
Rich Producer
Prince Rupert's mining centres
will this season be marked by the
greatest activity that has yet. characterized them. Hazelton and the
Skeena will undoubtedly attract a
very large share of attention but the
excitement will not be confined to
that area by any means. The Portland Canal and its tributary inlets
are destined, it is acknowledged by
all who come from the south, to
have a most prosperous season. In
this move the activity will not centre
alone about Stewart but there w-ill
during the season be a very wide distribution of activities. The attention that the Granby company will
give to Goose Bay will naturally divert a very great deal of interest in
that direction.
But Stewart will not be a dead
camp by any means. With the opening out of the season there are indications that there is to be a decided
rush into the mining portions, which
will put the different mines on a
commercial basis. Last season the
operations were largely of an experimental character. This year, however, the ground in no small measure has been exploited and the work
will in many cases be along the line
of making the properties permanent
Among the promising propositions
there are none probably that have a
better outlook than the Indian Mines
on Cascade Creek, a tributary of the
Salmon River. This is a galena
producer of high grade with gold
also running into high values.
The discover ofy the prospect is
due to Antone Denomie, of Odanah,
Wis. As a prospector Denomie has
covered many of the best fields of
Alaska. While employed by Charles
Guzman, one of the best-known mining men of this northern coast he
made the discovery of what is expected to be one of the richest of
the Portland Canal mines. Mr. Guzman, who makes his headquarters in
Ketchikan, has organized a company
lo work the Indian Mines and will
begin active operations this spring.
Already there are 6,000 pounds of
supplies on the ground and no time
will be lost in getting all that will
be required to make the mine one
that can be worked to its fullest capacity during not only the summer
but also all winter. Mr. Guzman is
in Prince Rupert at present on business connected with this group of
mines. No stock has been placed on
the market, although there has been
50,000 shares applied for by those
who have inspected the location.
The property was passed upon by
James Cronin, the most conservative
of mining engineers. His report
shows that the property Is a wonder
in the way of outcropping. His report goes so far as to state that with
the showing in some nearby prospects there is sufficient to warrant
the building of a transportation line
from the properties to tidewater.
His report states that there is a
vein 25 feet wide. In the twelce
feet nearest the footwall the assay
averages 60% lead and 20% silver.
The outcrop he also reports carries
values from  $20 to $50 in gold.
The showing, as reported upon by
Mr. Cronin, is indeed a very excellent one. There is every prospect of
good communication within the next
twelve months, so that the outlook
for the company is a good one.
Jimmy    McDonnell    Took    Carbolic
Acid—Hody Sent to
TEL. 187
The steamer Prince George yesterday morning took south the body of
"Jimmy" McDonnell, of Hazelton.
His death occurred on Wednesday as
a result of his taking a drink of car-
golic acid. The drug was taken
from a bottle in his suit case and it
is stated by those who knew him best
that he in all probability took the
drink in mistake for a tonic, as he
was not feeling well.
The deceased was only 18 years of
age and was the youngest son of
Jack McDonnell, the well-known hotel proprietor on the Skeena. He
was a native of Victoria, B. C, and
lived there most of his life.
It was only a few days before the
death of James that another son of
Mr. McDonnell died In Hazelton.
The father passed through here last
week with the remains, only to be
followed in a few days by the body
of a second son.

An assault case was heard in the
police court this morning when a
fine of $10 was Inflicted upon the
convicted man.
