(Special to Tbe Journal)
LONDON, April 4.—Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, General Botha, Sir Joseph
Ward and Premier Fisher, of Australia, have arranged to visit Galway
on the way through Ireland in connection with the All-Red Route.
The visit.is looked upon as a most

PREPARING FOR SPRING
The Westliolme Lumber Company,
as may be seen by the advertising
columns, is preparing for a busy season in the building line. In order to
be ready for all demands the company has made arrangements for
very complete lines of materials in
all classes.
Five million feet of lumber is being urought from the south by this
enterprising firm in all classes and
grades. This is but the beginning
of other heavy supplies that are to
be brought In so that Prince Rupert
builders may not require to buy outside of the city.
The company has a splendid cement storehouse on its waterfront,
and Is making arrangements for
hadling sand and gravel in an economical way, so that reinforced
worlj and brick building may bo
done economically,
No firm is In such a favorable
position to handle the trade in the
lines suggested and builders would
consult their own interests by conferring with t.ie Westliolme Company before placing orders.
CITY WEIGH SCALES
AJderman Newton Brought up the Subject
at Last Night's Council
Meeting
Objections Made to tlie Introduction
of the System in Pilnce
Rupert at Present
The question of weigh scales for
the city was brought before the
council last evening. Aid. Newton
brought the subject up and pressed
for action.
Aid. Newton was In favor of public weigh scales. By having such
the public would be assured of getting the correct,weight in coal, etc.
He simply brought this up( In order
to Introduce a discussion.
Aid. Hilditch said last year's
council went into this but it was
deemed advisable not to force Its Introduction at. this time. He thought
with the streets in the shape they
were It was not a proper time to Introduce this system. Under the bylaw at present a citizen could Insist
upon a verification of the weight.
Aid. Clayton felt that this was a
move In the right direction.
His Worship thought the streets
committee or Hie city engineer might
be empowered to look into the matter.
Aid. Newton moved to have this
referred to the city engineer.
Aid. Hilditch said he would oppose this. If this were carried into
effect it would mean that the coal
would be raised about 50 cents a ton
as teams would have to travel . so
much farther to have the weighing
done.
Aid. Newton was agreeable to having the motion amended so that the
place for weighing should be In a
central position.
Aid. Morrissey, from what he knew
of the coal weighing in the city, felt
convinced that there was no attempt
tote dishonest on the part of the
deMcrs. The quantities sent out
were very small and he did not think
it woulu warrant an officer being
elected.
The motion carried.
CITY NOW CONTROLS WHOLE WATERSHED
Negotiations Conducted by Mayor Manson When South Results in Acquisition of Prince Rupert
. Power & Light Company's Rights at Woodworth Lake--Price Asked Last Year
by Controllers Has Been Cut in Half-No other Records Exist to
Interfere With Plans for Municipality.
THOUSANDS COMING
i Record Number of Emigrants are Leaving
Britain for This Continent.
Following close upon the announcement of the city engineer's
plans for supplying Prince Rupert
with an adequate water supply for
domestic purposes, conies the further Important move made by the
council for the acquisition of the remaining rights over the Woodwortli
and Shawatlans Lakes. With this
latest acquisition the city's rights
are ensured to the whole of the water of these lakes with the watershed
reserved for her use. The water is
now held not for domestic supply
alone but is also capable of being
used at any time for power purposes.
The council last evening, acting on
the advice of the city engineer, decided to purchase the whole of the
interests of C. M. Woodwortli, of
Vancouver, and his associates in the
water at'Wood worth Lake. The price
to be paid is $15,000 and with it
goes sufficient water to develop over
1,800 horsepower according to the
estimate of the city engineer.

CENSUS COMMISSIONERS
(Special  to The Joprnal)
OTTAWA, April 4.—-The commissioners     who     Will    be    in
charge of the census in British
Columbia in June next include:
Comox-Atlin—John Bruce, of
Cumberland, and Frank Mobley,
of Prince Rupert.
Vale-Cariboo—J. M. Yorston,
of Cariboo, anu W. R. Knowles,
of Vernon.
*   *   *   *
*   *   *   •
The record so acquired from Mr.
Woodwortli is that held by the
Prince Rupert Power and Lighjt
Company, which was incorporated in
1907. Rights were acquired by the
company to about eight miles of the
water in the lake.
Sought  Rights
Last year, it will be remembered,
when a permanent water supply for
tne city came up, tlie question of acquiring these rights was introduced,
.in option was secured upon the
rights of the company at $30,000,
which the council was advised to
take in order to secure a source of
supply.
The contention of Mr. Manson
then was that the government reserve for city purposes there was
good and should be acquired in the
regular way. Application Vas made
through Mr. Manson and the water
secured from the government, although Mr. Woodworth and his
friends put up a strenuous objection
to it, claiming the full right over the
waters.
On the city securing its supply
from the government, which the engineer estimates is sufficient to provide for a domestic supply for 60,-
000 people, there yet remained the
rights of the Prince Rupert Power
and Light Company over the remaining water.
The proposition was made that
tne city should still acquire this water nt $30,000, but the time expired
before action could be taken.
Expropriation proceedings were
suggested In order that the city
might be ensured a full supply. A
difficulty stood In the way of expropriation, namely, that it could be
for domestic purposes alone and not
for- supplying power. With a supply
for 60,000 people, expropriation did
not seeni to be absolutely called for
and the matter propped.
Negotiations Opened
While in Victoria this, winter, Mr.
Manson entered Into negotiations
with the representatives of the power company looking to the acquisition of the water rights held by that
organization. After considerable
negotiation during which Mayor
Manson Is reported to have refused
to consider paying $30,000 for the
rights, the company agreed upon
$15,000 as a price for withdrawing
absolutely from the field, but below
that figure they would not go. Falh-
:tig a settlement the company also
stated  they  were  prepared  to  start
work on a scheme of developing the
power there.
The city council after considering
the proposition agreed that in the
city's interests the water should be
acquired as with its acquisition all
rights outside of the city are extinguished in the waters of the lakes.
Arbitration, especially if the work
wkas commenced by the company,
would be expensive, as the full outlay by the company with the percentage added would have 'to be paid.
The acquisition by arbitration proceedings would ensure the water
only for domestic purposes also,
which was a decided disadvantage.
Now, by purchase the rights for power purposes are ensured.
Advantages Gained
The report of the city engineer
which was read last night in connection with the report showed that
1.8S4 horsepower could be developed by this water. This is of importance to the city and may be
used either by the city directly if the
policy of municipal ownership is
adopted, or it may be a revenue
producer if a working arrangement
is made with an independent, company to use the water which tlie
city has acquired.
From tlie standpoint of domestic
supply also the cily is in a much
;better position than it was formerly
as it ensures a plentiful supply for a
population far beyond the 60,000
mark.
The engineer also looited upon the
acquisition as valuable from the fact
that he conduit for the city water
supply can be best laid below the
water line on a sandy beach for a
distance of one and one-half miles
alongside one of the lakes. By the
acquisition of the water rights tills
can be carried out, the level of the
lake being made to conform to this
arrangement. The question of floating the debentures for water purposes was urged also by the engineer, as an inducement for the ac-
would more readily take the deben-
quisition of this water as financiers
tures where the whole of the water
was under the control of the city
than would be the case were only
one-ninth of the water.
Engineer's Report
The report which was presented
last evening recommending the acquisition of the water rights read as
follows:
Prince Rupert, April 3, 1911.
To tbe Mayor and Council.
Gentlemen:—
As the members of the council are
aware, negotiations have been in
progress for the last two months
with a view to acquiring tlie water
records held by the Prince Rupert
Power and Light Company on Wood-
worth and Shawatlans Lakes and
streams and we now beg to report
that arrangements have been concluded between the Prince Rupert
Power and Light Company and the
City to purchase all their water
rights and privileges for the sum of
$15,000. The transfers and records
are now lodged In the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, Prince Rupert,
awaiting the payment of the above
amount. Messrs. Bodwell & Lawson,
barristers, of Victoria and Vancouver, have investigated tlie condition
of tlie company's records and have
attended to the necessary transfers
and assignments to the City. Your
committee might state in this connection, that the City had the right
of expropriating this water but for a
domestic supply only and not for
power purposes. According to the
report of Col. Davis, city engineer, a
copy of which is enclosed herewith,
It is possible for the City to develop
over 1,800 horsepower for power
purposes which would be of very
material importance to the City at
the present time in connection with
our electric light plan!.
While the three hundred inches
which the GRy acquired- last year direct Jrom the government would
have been sufficient water to serve
the City for many years to come, yet
it is felt that it was far better to f
have all the rights of the Prince i
Rupert Power and Light    Company,
extinguished in oraer that no conflict might arise in the future and
ensure to the City an efficient supply
of water for all time to come as well
as during the early stages of the
City, obtain the use of the water for
power purposes. This company was
about to proceed with their plans of
development unless some action was
taken by the City to buy them out.
Had they proceeded to insta'l a
;,Iaut aud expend money, if the City
should afterwards proceed by expropriation we should undoubtedly have
had to pay for the cost of such improvements as they might have
made. In concluding the purchase
of these water rights now, we are
undoub^dly getting it at a cheaper
price than it could be bought In the
future" when improvements might
have been made.
If we bad proceeded by expropriation it is altogether likely that arbitration proceedings would have resulted in the City paying more for
the water than we are now having
to pay and then we would only have
had the use of the water for a "domestic supply," while by closing the
matter out now by mutual consent
we have the right to use tlie water
not only for domestic supply but for
power  purposes as well.
For the information of the council we wish to state that the Provincial Government has made a reserve
of the whole watershed of Wood
worth and Shawatlans Lakes for the
protection of tlie water supply of the
City of Prince Rupert.
We beg to recommend that the
mayo: a id city clerk be authorized
to issue a cheque for the sum of
$15,018.75, payable to the Canadian
Bank of Commerce and take up the
water records and transfer now ly
Ing in tlie bank in connection with
this matter.
Respectfully submitted,
(Signed) '   V. W. SMITH,
Chairman, Fire and Water
Committee.
Engineer's Report
The city engineer's report, made
while in Victoria, was also read. It
was as follows:
Victoria, B. C,
21st February,  1911^
vVm. Manson, Esq., M. P. P.,
Mayor of Prince Rupert,
Victoria, B. C.
Sir:—
Re Woodworth Lake Water Supply.
Judging from surveys I have made
and data I have obtained regarding
rainfall and run-off, I am of opinion
that the waters tributary to this
drainage system can be so utilized
as to produce a mean flow of 76.13
cubic feet per second. Of this 8.4
cubic feet per second is the property
of the City of Prince Rupert, the remaining 87.73 cubic feet per second
belong to a private company, which
also controls the water flowing into
Shawatlans Lake. With the head
available at Shawatlans this flow
will produce  1,884  horsepower.
(a) The 8.4 cubic feet tier second would supply a population of
45,000. It Is quite possible that In
twenty years the population of
Prince Rupert will exceed this number, and in that event the acquisition
of any additional Supply from this
source would be at very great expense.
(b) The City of Prince Rupert
should have absolute control of the
drainage area from which the water
for domestic purposes Is drawn, If
a private Company had the right to
pfofceed in this watershed with development for power purposes works
would be undertaken to increase the
supply which would certainly imperil the purity of the water.
(c) About one and one-half miles
of the water conduit leading from
w oodworth Lake to the City can be
more economically constructed on a
sandy beach just below the surface
of the water along the south shore
of Shawatlans, then along the rocky
mountal nslde above, this location
along the lake shore Is only practicable when the surface of the lake Is
lowered. This could be effected by
blasting out a channel In tbe rapids
at the outlet of Shawatlans, 36 feet
in length, bul In order to use this
location it is necessary to acquire the
lights of the private company,
Idi The water debentures when
laced on the market will certainly
be more attractive to prospective
purchasers, If u can be stated that
the whole run-off of the drainage
area belongs to the City, Instead of
one-ninth to tlie City and eight-
ninths  to a private company.
to) Tlie acquisition of these
rights would place within our reach
l,8o.. horsepower and it is quite
possible might obviate the necessity
for further extension of our steam
plant.
These rights may be obtained by
expropriation or direct purchase
from the company. If expropriation
proceedings are taken the water
may be used for municipal purposes
only, this would absolutely preclude
the use for power and defeat one of
the chief objects for acquiring it.
I have also reason to believe that
the company will now accept a less

LETHBRIUGE, April 4.—The
miners are all idle in district number 18, United .Mine Workers of
America, and six thousand men
along the Crows Nest line are out

The mine was idle all winter, but

.
sum than they would be likely to obtain if expropriation proceedings
were taken.
I am firmly of the opinion that
the rights of this company are worth
very much more to the City of
Prince Rupert than the $15,000
claimed, and I may say I am sustained in this opinion by Mr. Drew-
ry, the chief water commissioner of
British Columbia.
Yours respectfully,
WM. MAHLON DAVIS,
City  Engineer.
Aid. Hilditch moved in favor of
the adoption of the report, which
was carried unanimously.

HAL (HASH'S START
When "Hal" Chase began playing
wiili the Los Angeles team on the
village green, he was the only hoy
on tlie field. The others were men.
This gives a hint as to his early ability. But this is the tale of his first
entrance upon a real league diamond.
It was the opening day of the
ooast league baseball season in Los
Angeles, Cal., in 1904. A big crowd
was out—20,000 fans—for California is a great baseball state. The
first game was with Oakland, then
as potent a drawing card in Los Angeles as the Cubs are in New York.
Frank Dillon was the first baseman
of the Los Angeles team, and he was
considered the best workman about
zhe initial sack on tlie coast. He
was the star of the team, the idol -of
the fans; in short, the hope of Los
Angeles.
The Pacific Coast league had been
in outlawed organization, but in
1904 it had returned to the ranks of
organized baseball. The Brooklyn
rlub of tlie National league promptly
irafted Dillon, as was Its right. Still,
the fans hoped lhat hy some hitch
<jr technicality Dillon might be able
to play in this most important opening game. The management hoped
•Jiat. he might be able to piny for he
a'ad ;:.. desire to leave his native
state, and the idol and worship tor
-.be precarious road which a big
"eague recruit has to travel. He was
)ld in the game. Ilo bad no higher
ambitious than to lie a star In the
Pacific Coast league.
"Better be first in the Pacific
Boas I league, than second in Brooklyn," was Dillon's sentiment.
So the stage was set for the opening game. The customary parade of
players passed without the official
scorer crediting anyone with ai. error. The band played a medley of
American airs. The management
was ' standing them in aisles." Dillon played witli Hie Los Angeles
team in practice. The bell sounded
three times as a signal that the season was on. The umpire dusted off
tho plate, the Los Angeles pitcher
threw a few to his catcher, and the
first Oakland batter knocked imaginary clay out of his spikes with
his willow stick.
Suddenly a messenger boy brushed
through the crowd out upon the
field. He walked io the Los Angeles
bench and handed a telegram to the
manager. The manager walked out
to the plate and held a conference
with the umpires. The first batsman, curious, ceased knocking clap
out of his cleats and walked up to
the plate. The other manager joined
them. Players gathe.-ea around.
There was keen suspense in the
large crowd, and each man asked his
neighbor, "What's the matter? '
The answer was prompt. The Los
Angeles manager signalled for Dillon to come in from first, The telegram was from the National commission. Another club in a league of a
higher class had claimed Dillon. He
could not play with Los Angeles. The
supreme court of baseball had decreed it, and the decree must be
obeyed. Dillon could not play in the
opening game.
Tlie populace groaned.
Out in. left field was a stripling
sitting on the edge of the bleachers,
kicking his heels. Passively he
watched the discussion at the home
plate, thinking that it concerned him
not a scintilla. Suddenly his manager raised a finger at him. He
slipped off his seat, took the chewing gum from his cap and ran to
the bench, In a minute be was out
on first base. His two-piece suit,
bearing the words "Santa'Clara" did
not match any better than a man's
principles and his habits. Tbe crowd
groaned when they saw this misfit
going out to the position. Some of
the gamblers—for they bet on base-
hall on the Pacific coast—began to
hedge.
The game started. The infielders
were nervous with the big crowd of
the first day. Their enthusiasm exceeded their accuracy when it came
to throwing. The stripling at first
bat seemed to be the coolest one of
them all. With one hand he pulled
down balls 'way over his head. He
dug them up out of the dirt.
In the first inning the spectators
said be was as "good as Dillon"; in
the second he was "some player,"
and In the third they exclaimed,
"He's a wonder!"
In the fifth Inning the youngster
broke up the game with a triple with
two men Tin the bags. The crowd
went crazy. The great California
public is no exception to the rest of
the great American populace. It is
fickle. Dillon was forgotten. The
new hero misfit suit and all, had
dethroned  hini.       It  wns a  case  of
"Tlie king is dead! Long live the
icing!"
The new man was "Hal" Chase.
In a week- Dillon was forgotten.
Now he is only remembered as the
man who 'Hal" Chase displaced. The
next day Chase had a regular's suit.
But he had made good in the misfit,
which only goes to prove that you
can't judge a book by its binding.
Now they call him the best first
baseman that the game lias ever
known. Fans who have seen this
wonder in action on the field know
him as the ball player.

THE  WATER SITUATION
DIAZ BORN RULER
Opinion Expressed  by Dr. J. A.
donald Editor of the Toronto
Globe.
Mac-
Tlie Government, He Say* Is Republican Only in  Name—Is
Military  Despotism
The decision of the city council to
ii in the action of Mayor .Manson
relative to the purchase ol   the remaining     water    rights    at     bakes
Woodworth  and Shawatlans, is un-
li tb   ii,.-.  a  wise policy.    It secures
/or the city a vast water supply, free
from  all  private  companies.       This
acquisition of water rights for $15,-
000  ensures  to  the  city  a  splendid
estlc supply  and  also an  exeel-
power  proposition.    There  are
no other records on the lakes so that
the city will be able to do as it sees
best  In  tlie matter.
Opinions may differ as to the advisability of tlie povt'er propositions
such as light and tram services being
owned by the municipality or by
private companies, but in any event
the city acts wisely in securing the
rights at tlie lakes. The city is ensured of a source of supply that in
these days of cheap power cannot be
overestimated.
Mayor Manson has shown that his
time was not wasted while he was
in the south as far as Prince Rupert
is concerned. That he has been able
to make a bargain with the Prince
Rupert Power and bight Company
for $15,000, which was held by that
company at $30,000 last year, speaks
■rell for his business ability in advancing the interests of the city.
With water rights callable at a
lomparatlvely light cost of developing well on to 2,000 horsepower,
Prince Rupert is placed in an enviable position. It can either develop
the power if deemed wise or make
arrangements with some private
company lo use tne water in a power
proposition, in any event the city
should lie able to control the situa
tion so lhat here wiil lie an opportunity to furnish intending manufacturers  cheap  power.
In a day like this when competi
tion among the different coniiner
oial cities is so great, this question
of power means much. Added to
her other vast advantages the city
is to have within such easy reach as
to be considered practically in the
corporation, water power to serve to
a very considerable exieiit the needs
oi the place for some time.
The offer was one that was not
31H11 to being considered for any
length of time. It had to lie acted
apon quickly. Tbe council could
not afford to turn down such a
proposition and tlie business men of
the city will undoubtedly endorse
the action.
ALL-RED ROUTE
Rev. .1. A. .Macdonald, editor of
the Toronto Globe and one of the
...est known newspaper men in Canada while In Victoria has given his
opinion of President Diaz, of Mex-1
leo.
Wilii some twenty of Hie best I
known newspaper editors In Canadit
•Hid tiie United Stales Dr. Macdonald was Invited te \ isit Mexico la il
September as the guest of President
Diaz, during tlie Centennial celebrations of .Mexican Independence. From
that trip lie is only jus; returning
i.y slow stages, having spent some
time in Souther:! California recuperating.
Dr. Macdonald, in the course of an
interview expressed a high opini n oi'
Mexico's veteran president. Diaz,
lie says, is a wonderful man and a
born organizer and ruler. But he
says that .Mexico's government is republican only in name; Diaz's "regime" is rather that of a military
despotism, which, all things considered, lias been a benevolent and a
beneficent despotism, and has certainly been the saving grace of Mexican independence.
But, added Dr. Macdonald in one
of his characteristically pungent
phrases, "a government should grow
out of the nation, not be put on like
Saul's armor—and left."
Mexico's Need
The cardinal weakness in his otherwise strong and sound administration is that President Diaz has not
"brought on" any young men to take
up the reins of government after
death should call the great republican leader from office. Each of his
counsellors is a political Polouius.
They are wise men. but old; old men
who give good advice as a consola-
lion for being unable to give good
example. Dr. Macdonald spoke highly of Henry Clay.Creel—who    wears

WHERE "CATGUT" IS MADE
Probably but a small percentage
of the fishermen who -use flies
strung with fine translucent "catgut" are aware that the almost unbreakable substance that holds the
hooks against the fiercest struglges
of the struck fish, comes from silkworms.
The principal centre for the manufacture of this kind of catgut is
the Island of Procida, in the Bay of
Naples, but most of the silk worms
employed are raised near Torre
Annunziata, at the foot of Vesuvius.
The caterpillars are killed just as
they are about to begin the spinning
of cocoons, the silk glands are removed and subjected to a process of
pickling, which is the secret of the
trade, and afterwards the threads
are carefully drawn out by skilled
workers, mostly women. The length
of the thread varies from a foot to
nearly twenty inches,
The Fire Fighter
It should always be gratifying lo
residents of Prince Ruper\ to bear
tbat the scheme of the All-Red
Route is attaining importance and
nearing definite shape. In the carrying out of such a scheme this port,
ft lias always been felt, would play
an Important part. The National
Transcontinental and the Brand
Trunk Pacific combined must constitute the best railway across the
jontinent of America. In the formulating of .lie All-Red Route with all
that lhat scheme means, It has always been felt that the Canadian
S-overnmenl would favor the G. T. P,
tor the land end of the scheme as fat-
is Canada is concerned. This lias
been recognized by those In close
-.ouch with transportation affairs for
fears and oilier companies have
il ....ii a disposition to fear such a
londitiou being created.
Tlie premiers Of the overseas dominions are reported to have in
-lew, looking Into the situation as It
jxisis relative to this scheme in Ireland.
When the time arrives for the
i»rrying out of such a project, along
the magnificent lines contemplated
by those favoring it, the Grand
Trunk Pacific will be able to take
its part in the proposition. Prince
Rupert will be a port with unrivalled advantages in the way of
shipping and on the great through
route among tne seaports of the empire its advancement must be phenomenal.
EDIT
H.  Ward, of  the  Ward  Electrical
Works, has gone south.
We cheered when they hoisted her onto the wharf,
With her beautiful varnished paint.
We saw that she wasn't no kind o' dwarf,
And she might need a bit of restraint.
When they swings the handle and starts her up,
"bet  her  go,"  says  BUI  to  me,
"If I ain't mistaken, she'll buck a hit,
"Keep  your eyes skinned,  'Sport,'—you'll see."
When  he  let in   the clutch—this  fancy bloke,
As they'd  brought up from Vic. to drive her,
She just give a lep like a piston stroke,
Then stopped like a winded diver.
Well, he used some words as it ain t my place
To repeat in a yarn like this. ■
Then he tips with the Bonnett and shoves his face
In the works of that chrysalis.
He touched  the fan and he felt the coll,
And tightened the nuts up better,
He cleaned the Magneto, and changed a plug,
And he tickled the Carburetor.
When she DID start off she was smoking some,
And the roar of her'd deafen an adder.
But   never  mind,  boys,  the  engine's come
With her Babeock and hose and a ladder.
She won't go into the Fire Hall—•
But that's the fault of the Builder.
Somehow the aerned place seems too small,
But we'll wait till the night air's chilled her.
She stood in the streels or down in the shed
Of   Prince   Rupert's   Construction Co.;
When her water pipes burst, they put her to rights,
Inside of a month or so.
When the fire broke out on Sixth  and Third
And threatened the business quarter,
The firemen fought the raging flames,
Led on by Mrlnnis and Porter.
But where was the Engine, Sir?—you say—
Why, she'd slipped into the muskeg
In front of the Bank and there she lay
Like a sat-upon-broken-bust egg.
She'd skidde daround from Fulton street
And crashed into Wallace's store,
She pitched the driver out of his seat,
Then  backed  with a  rattle  and roar.
She'd broken her gear loose and axle bar,
Her crankshaft was bent and twisted,
A caricature of the nine-thou. car
In the company's catalog listed.
Yes, sir; nine thousand's the price they paid
Of tlie citizens' hard-earned money.
She ain't worth a niekle, I'm much afraid,
But maybe they think it's funny!
When the fire was out—the boys fixed that—
There was some was for making a row,
"Let byegones be bygones," said Bill to me,
"We'll  call  her  the  Muskeg  Plough."

DOES CANADA WANT THEM?
Bahama Island Residents Arc Largely Blacks—Situation for Country to Consider
Members of the legislature of the
Bahamas have voted by 26 to 6 in
favor of political union with the
Dominion of .Canada. This is a
compliment to Canada, but It is a
case of where the gift horse must be
looked in the mouth. The bulk of
the population is b'ack. The blacks
have very limited political rights,
and the legislature is based upon a
restricted franchise, very different
from anything in this country. The
The admission of the islands to confederation would introduce political
and social problems to which Canadians are now strangers, and and to
which they will probably prefer to
remain strangers. They see what the
race problem means across the line,
and they will be chary of importing
it even to the slighest degree, no
matter what the commercial compensation may be. The white people of
the Bahamas would    probably    not
agree to any extension of the political privileges of the colored population. Does Canada want a new
province without representative government in the full sense? The offer
of the Bahamas must be very strictly examined.

THE SAHARA DESERT
Scheme is Now on Foot to Hake it a
Great Inland
Sea.
' Revival of the Proposition so often
Put   Forward   by
Scientists
aroused
of     the
Great  interest  has  been
in  Europe by the renewal
project  to  change  the  Sahara  Desert Into a sea.
The author of this project is Professor Edniond Etchegoyen, one of
the most distinguished engineers
and scientists in France. He Is In
many ways comparable to Ferdinand de LessepS, tlie projector of
the Panama Canal.
The project is receiving great
support from Mademolsele Etchgoy-
en, the beautiful and accomplished
daughter of the professor. She is
supporting tlie scheme with much
energy and enthusiasm and through
her efforts, there is a serious prospect that it may be carried out,
In favor of the scheme it is said
that it will restore a vast territory
to civilization. Against, it is urged
the startling facl thai it may upset
the balance of the world.
The Sahara Desert is an immense,
depression many hundred thousands
of miles In extent, lying generally
from one hundred to a thousand
feet below sea level.
It is for tlie most part useless, a
menace to life and a hindrance to
commerce. Its climate is absolutely
unendurable, because it. lies on and
about the equator, below the sea
level, and is shut off from the cooling winds from the north by the
Atlas Mountains.
On behalf of the plan to flood the
Sahara,  it   is  claimed:
1. Thai it would render the territory surrounding tlie great inland
lake habitable.
2. That it would furnish a safe
and liealty way of communication
through   Central   Africa.
3. That it. would give a comparatively moderate climate to this region, as moderate probably, as the
north shore of Africa, lying on the
Mediterranean Sea.
The lake could easily he formed,
acordlng to the proprietors, by cut-1 them out °r tttelr dwelling places,
ting a small fifty-mile canal from or. at best deprive them of the op-
the Mediterranean to Ihe Sahara Portunity to flee into tlie trackless
through a certain part, of the French wilderness when pursued

country    chiefly    affected    by    the who are quick  to  learn    nowadays
cities  of     London,   Edinburgh     and
Brussels.
"The British Islands would be
practically blotted from the map,
since their people would become a
savage people, clad in skins and
drinking oil ann eating blubber like
the Eskimo. The picture is a
strange one, yet there is something
else that is stranger still. Serious-
minded men of science have predicted something even worse, as a
possibility, than a mere change of
climate.
Suppose the channels were cut
down through the hills and plains
of .Morocco to the verge of the vast,
mysterious desert which lies beyond.
"There would come the moment
for the cutting to be made cm the
edge of the .Mediterranean—the
moment when a tremendous explosion of dynamite would shatter the
last harrier and allow the waters of
the world's oceans to go thundering
and roaring down the steep incline.
Tbe bursting of a reservoir, I lie
breaking of a great dam is a fearful
thing to contemplate; yet how trivial would' it be compared with this
great cataclysm, which would drain
two million cubic miles of water
from the seas and hurl them in one
tremendous avalanche into the
heart of a continent!
"Might not this sudden shifting of
so immense} a mass actually destroy
the equipoise of tlie earth, tlie nice
balance which keeps it adjusted on
its  ax.s?
"That is what Ihe scientists have
seriously asked themselves; and the
question gives us an almost shuddering insight into the power of the
human brain. It lias seamed and
scarred the world with lines of
steel; it has linked river to river
and sea to sea; it has levelled
mountains and tunnelled under the
river beds and even the channels of
the ocean;-and now it has within
Its power not merely to convert summer lands into Arctic wastes, but
conceivably it might even destroy
the earth itself and send us all
whirling into scattered fragments
through the infinite and awful
reaches   of   everlasting   space."
Not only the scientists are opposed to the project. The Moors,
Kabyles, Riffs and' other wild tribes

in arms against it.

Europe, upset economic conditions
on the continent, and perhaps imperil the safety of the world."
change, since tiie Sahara lies almost
entirely   within   French   territory.
The change mlghl also be effected letting the waters of the Atlantic
into the Sahara from the vest
coast of Africa.
Against the formation nf the new-
sea the chief reason urged is that it
would cause a dangerous change in
the climate of Europe, tlie consequences of which no one can foresee. It Is quite remarkable how
many eminent scientists hold that
this would  be a  grave danger.
Some go so far as to assert that
the sudden shifting of so vast a
body of water might shift the position of the earth's axis, thereby entailing a disturbance which might
cau e the destruction of all life on
,our globe.

world, have already hteard of the
Etchegoyen project. Tlie first step
to carry into effect will be a signal
for a raid by them on tlie civilized
settlements of the Mediterranean
shore. They have already proved
that they are dangerous antagonists
in their wars with the French and
Spanish, and a combined movement
by them would be indeed a terrible
danger.
It can be easily seen that consequences or great magnitude, which
no one can foresee, are involved In
this scheme. Professor Mollendorff
argues that the more' conservative

come to the conclusion that the ex-
traordlnarj floods and frosts from
which Europe has lately suffered
are due to the deforestation of
America, France and England have
both suffered abnormally from
floods. Professor Camllie Flamar-
ion of Paris, is one of those who
support this view, and another is
Professor Bruckner, of Vienna.
"The flooding of tlie Sahara,"
says the distinguished Professor
.Mollendorff, or .Munich, "would
make the climate of France and
Germany subarctic, while England,
Belgium and Denmark would be almost uninhabitable, Some of the
greatest capitals of the world would
soon he quite deserted. Polar bears
would prowl amid the Icebergs and
snows of what are now the splendid
ble by Irrigation over a vast area
of the United states no better supplied with water limn tlie Sahara.
The great obstacle to be faced in tlie
African desert Is the shifting character of the sand, which moves In
billows and oilier fantastic forms.
It would be necessary lo construct sand shields cm an enormous
scale in order to makeacultlvation
safe and permanent on the irrigated
lands.
Experts, however, say that it
would be possible to hold the sand
In check, and the land thus reclaimed would be the best in the

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
LLOYD'S RISKS MANY
How the Company Operates its Business
-Will Ensure Almost
Anything.
Freak Insurance Has Kept the Name
of the Organization Before
the Public
The announcement that the pearl
necklace, diamonds and jewellery of
Mrs. Baldwin Drummond, valuend at
$130,000, stolen from her stateroom
on the Hamburg Amerika, were insured by Lloyds of London, which
will be aboul $100,000 in case the
missing gems do not turn up, recalls
the chances thai tills organization
takes on all manner of insurance.
Lloyds is not an insurance company as the term is known here. It
is an association of individuals who
are prepared to accept practically
any risk, the various members, or
groups of members, taking the
chances, each according to his own
views and the association itself not
in any way assuming responsibilities
for the Individual risks.
Originally the organization undertook only marine Insurance. In the
days of the Georges the owner of a
vessel would go to Lloyds' coffee
house In Alchurch lane and bis fellow merchants would sign their
names under the policy and opposite
the amount which ea*ch was prepared
to pay in case of shipwreck. Hence
the term "underwriters."
"Any Old Risk" at a Price
Gradually the underwriting custom began to be applied to risks
other than marine, and the speculative habit was developed. Today,
like the old underwriters, the various members are willing to consider
"any old risk" and will accept almost any at a price.
The various forms of freak insurance that Lloyds have indulged in
has kept its name in the public eye
as much as anything. England, of
course, has long been accustomed to
it, but it was such insurance as policies against Black Hand outrages,
taken out two years ago, and the
losses resulting from the possible
election of William Jennings Bryan,
that drew the special attention of
Americans to this practice of Lloyds,
that one can be insured against anything from twins down through
rainy weather to a cold in the head.
One hundred years ago or so the
predecessors of the present Lloyds
gambled on th/; fate of Napoleon.
The policy was for one month at
three per cent. This would be an
ordinary risk today for policies on
the lives of threatened uionarchs are
almost as common as policies upon
delayed ships. Everybody remembers how in 1902 Lloyds took a big
chance as to whether Edward VII
would live long enough to be
crowned King of Great Britain and
Ireland and Emperor of India. Many
men in Britain carry insurance all
the year round on tbe life of the
King. Some Wall street speculators,
it Is said, make it a practice to carry
insurance on the life of the President because of the probable market
upheaval that would tollow the sudden death of the head of the nation.
Wars and the lives of crowned
heads have always been the greatest
source of Lloyds' policies outside of
its legitimate business of marine insurance. Durin gthe period of continual disturbance in Europe between 1775 and 1815 not a cargo
went to sea that was not insured
against capture and during the more
recent Japanese-Russian conflict the
shipments of contraband to both parties were Inovilaby insured at
Lloyds.
Elephant Insurance
Policies ou the safety of valuable
animals are common, elephant Insurance especially being quite usual.
One Of tlie largest animal policies
was on tlie life of the great Jumbo
when he was brought to New York
on a steamship,
Horses, too, ar* often insured at
Lloyds. Nearly every stallion of importance on the Kentucky breeding
farms is insured, and still a few
years ago many race horses in training were insured, but a succession of
losses caused an advance of premiums to virtually a prohibitive figure. The final blow came when
James R. Keene's Highball broke his
leg in a race and had to be destroyed. He was insurend for a very
large amount.
Bank deposits are often insured,
and the Prince fo Waie's jubilefe
stamps were insurend at Lloyds, a
prominent firm of underwriters
guaranteeing that tbe Issue would be
successful, it was. An odder risk
was the insurance of a glass bed
packed in twenty cases and shipped
to an eastern ruler. One case was
damaged and the undenrwriter had
to pay in part. Gate money for cricket and football matches have also
been insured, and a lot of money is
made out of the vagaries of the
weather. Lloyds bets large sums
right along that it is not going to
rain on a certain day. At the time
of King Edward s coronation Lloyds
insurend stand owners, decorators
and florists, and lost, it is estimated,
at least a million dollars by the postponement of the ceremony. On the
other hand, the undenrwriters Insured Queen Victoria's jubilee and
her diamond jubilee, and as both
took place according to schedule
they made money on the outcome.
Paderewski on his concert tours
takes out half a dozen different
kinds of insurance, accident and
health, and a separate policy on his
fingers. Kubelik, the violinist, also
keeps his fingers insured and Caruso
and other grand opera stars carry
insurance against colds and other
maladies.
NEW   DISEASE   IN   CANADA
"One of the worst effects of the
chlorine treatment of Toronto's
water supply is an epidemic of imag-
Inltls." says Dr. Hastings, M. H. O.
Then he proceeded to hand out a
few figures to prove it.
"There are 480 drops In every
ounce of water. A pint holds 20
ounces. A gallon, therefore, would
nold 76,800  drops.
The proporcion of chlorine Is one
drop In 3,000,000 drops, and when
/ou figure It out that means a slnglt
drop of chlorine to about 40 gallons
of water, and it is very rarely that
chlorine reaches the consumer. It
is almost always taken up by the organic matter in the water before It
reaches the tap."
Therefor*, argues the M. H. O.
don't worry about the chlorine in the
water Injuring your hair, your interior, or your plants.

PEACE RIVER VALLEY
Arthur Stringer Writes on the Possibilities of This Great Farming Area.
That   Country,  He  Prophesies  Will
Open up with Wonderful
Rapidity from Now on
"The Peace River Valley is made
up of sixty-five million acres of
first class agricultural land, with
a wheat growing capacity of what
has been approximately estimated
at 500,000,000 bushels a year,' says
Arthur Stringer in Hampton's Magazine. "Not only can these northern plains and valleys grow wheat
but they can grow wheat of the
finest and hardest variety. They
have' done it; they are doing it
now, They will continue to do it
more and more, as those man-hungry acres are more and more invaded.
"Tlini they are destined to be invaded is no longer problematical.
For certain new truths have been
evolved, not only as to the nature
of the North but as to the nature of
the cereals which it can grow. The
farther north that wheat is matured
for instance, the harder the berry,
the whiter the flour, and the better
the general milling quality. 'Number One Northern' has become a
name to conjure with; it stands the
aristocrat of the grain family. The
same holds true of barley, oats and
rye. The nearer the Aactic circle
they can be grown, the longer and
heavier the ear and the better the
quality of the grain  itself.
"For in this country you find a
clear twenty hour day of undiluted
sunlight, and what that sunlight
can do to the softer, 'bleach'-demanding, lower grade wheat of the
south was exemplified when, twelve
years ago, soft wheat from southern
Kansas was sent north to Fort Vermillion, a Hudson Bay Post on tlte
Peace river, between 55 and 60
degrees nortli latitude. Here it'was
planted and replanted, season by
season. A year ago this same Kansas wheat was returned to its native state where, after expert examination, it was put under the grading 'No. One Hard Spring Wheat.'
Ten years of subarctic sunlight had
toughened il into a berry of the
finest and hardest quality,
"This subarctic    north,    In    fact,
needed only to be known to loose a
great deal of its terrors, Over five
hundred and fifty miles north of
Canada's most northerly railway
point, at Fort. Providence on the
Mackenzie river, on the fifteenth
day of last July, Canada's superintendent of forestry, found wheat
already 'in the milk,' potatoes in
flour, garden peas fit to use, and
tomatoes, turnips, rhubarb, beets,
cabbage, onions and other vegta-
bles in abundance.
"For years now horses and cattle
have been kept at Salt River, at 61
degrees 30 minutes north latitude,
more poleward than Chilkat village
itself. For twenty-five years cattle
raising has been carried on at Fort
Good Hope, which actually stands
within the Arctic circle. For over
thirty years the practice of herding
out horses has been an acknowledged success in the Peace River
country, and about Lesser Slave
range for years.
"Three years ago Mr. Conroy, of
the department of Indian affairs,
reported to a Canadian parliamentary committee th t he had found
excellent farms in the latitude of
; 02 degrees II minutes—which is
almost as far north as Iceland
farther north than the southern end
of Greenland and some 800 miles
north of the northern boundary of
Minnesota—where he saw heavy
crops of wheat, oats, barley and
peas. Before be started south, on
July 2S, barley cutting was already
under way. He reported all kinds
of wild fruits in the country, with
the exception of apples, which cannot be grown nortli of Edmonton.
But even as far north as Fort Providence he picked with his own
hands fine strawberries, raspberries
blueberries and cranberries. And
this is the territory which General
Shermanonce contemptously designated as 'the frozen north.'
"This frozen belt holds more than
grain and the poslbilities of bewildering grain harvestings. Timber
suitable for commercial purposes,
grows right to the Arctic sea, with
larch and balsam, tamarack and
white poplar, birch and black and
white spruce flourishing as far north
as Fort Macpherson. Besides its Umber it has immense water powers going to waste, and natural gas fields
simply waiting for the driller. It
has copper and silver and gypsum,
and galena and ontcroppings of gold,
the value of which cannot as yet
even be gtissed at. It, has salt and
fisli In abundance. In sight even
now it has tar and tar sand sufficient to manufacture enough asphalt
io pave every street in every town in
the Dominion of Canada. Its coal
deposits are inestimable.
"The Dominion superintendent of
forestry ,in testifying recently before the House of Commons agriculture committee, stated that on Slave
river, near Fort Norman, he had discovered a bank of burning coal,
some 20 miles in length, which the
great Mackenzie himself had reported as being on fire in 1789!
"But this is only the outskirt, tbe
remoter fringe, of the country in
which the United States of America
is at present so actively interested.
The territory which has been swallowing up a half million of western
American immigrants is that which
lies closer to the international line
and is made up of the provinces of
Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba."

COUNCIL PROCEDURE
Mayor  Manson   Introduces  a  liylaw
to Govern the Conduct
of Business
Mayor Manson lost evening introduced a bylaw to amend the council
procedure bylaw.
To introduce the bylaw he asked
that Aid. Kirkpatrick take the chair.
On the second reading, His Worship explained some of the features
of the new measure.
It proposed that the first meeting
for the year should be in the evening
instead of at noon as provided for

There were other features Intended
to bring the council procedure more
in line with the municipal clauses
act. The basis for the bylaw was the
one in force in Victoria where tnere
has been a long experience under the
general act.
The bylaw passed its second reading.
