THE WEST OPPOSES
Several Liberals are Ready to Follow
Clifford Sifton's
Example
Sir   Wilfrid   Will   Attend   Imperial
Conference Aim4ft
May  12
(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, March 3.—The reciprocity debate will probably continue for a month yet. The Western Conservatives, heartened by
Clifford Sifton's speech, now say
they are prepared to vote so'idly
against the agreement.
In the House of Commons yesterday Wm. M. German, the Liberal
member for Welland, opposed the
agreement on the ground that It
would injure the fruit-growing district which  he represented.
The only other Liberal recalcitrants are W. O. Sealy, representing
the fruit district of Wentworth,
Lloyd Harris, the agricultural Implement manufacturer of Brantford,
and James R. Stratton, of Peterboro.
On the other hand at least half a
dozen conservatives have not yet
been whipped into line to vote with
their leader against the agreement.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier expects to
leave for the Imperial Conference
about May 12 if tbe situation in the
Commons will permit of him getting
away.

UNIQUE WEDDING
Skidegate Residents Attend Festivities
Given in the Town Hall
There.
Interesting      Event     When      Local
Young People Are Married In
Islaiiel   Village
(Special Corerspondence)
On February 27 the Village of
Skidegate was the scene of a very
Interesting event, the occasion being
the marriage of Miss Mary Pearson to Mr. Luke W. Watson, both
well known and popular in the village.
The bride was prettily attired in a
dress of delicate blue, tastefully
trimmed wtih Insertion and lace, and
wore a long veil and orange blossoms.
The bride was attended by several
bridesmaids, Mrs. E. C. Stevens being mnld of honor, while Mr. Melntyre, of the Dominion Wireless Station, supported the bridegroom.
Tlie brass band escorted the party
to the church where Dr. Spencer, before a large number of Interested
friends, performed the ceremony.
The party then proceeded to the
town hall, led by the newly married
couple. When part way there the
procession  paused for a photo.
A sumptuous repast was provided
of which about one hundred and
fifty guests partook.
The band discoursed sweet music.
Among other selections was Annie
Laurie, and either the sentiment or
the rendition of the piece, or both,
found a responsive place and was
followed by continued applause.
The appearance of the chief actors
in the scene, the music, the repast
and speeches filled as they were with
sage advice and good counsel, united
to make an Impression long to be
remembered by those who were fortunate enough to be present.

HE WANTS RESULTS
Commissioner Stephens Wishes to Obtain
More Convictions in Police
Court.
Board   Meets   and    Disposes   of   the
Necessary Business for
the Month
The police commissioners met
on Wednesday afternoon at the city
ball with Commissioner M. M. Stephens presiding, in the absence of
the mayor who is chairman. Commissioner Kirkpatrick, the chief of
police' and the clerk were present
also.
Outside of routine work little was
done. On a report that $35 was still
left to the credit of the chief for
special use in prosecuting cases, the
question came up whether they
should ask the city for a further
sum.
Commissioner Stephens said that
he did not feel like asking any further sum Just now. He did not see
that there were sufficient results
from the money spent. There seemed
to be a number of cases entered into
without corresponding convictions.
The chief said that the one dismissal was on a technicality. It is
not the fault of the police.' Ii was
not shown that the offence was committed in Prince Rupert.
Commissioner Stephens said practically $200 was spent in this work
and what was there to show.
The chief said one man paid a
$100 fine, and another paid $67.
There was the case of the Chinese
fined also.
Commissioner Stephens did not
believe in these men against whom
complaints were laid of keeping
blind pigs and committing other offences being allowed to leave the
city. They should be prosecuted
and made to pay fines.
Tlie cbief explained that in some
Cases they got out before the summons was served.
This brought up the question of
the procedure under which the prosecution was conducted. Commissioner Stephens advising that advice
be ohtained as to whether it would
not be better In many cases to proceed under the criminal code than
under the local bylaw.
The report for tlie month showed
41 cases had come up and 36 convictions had resulted. There were
still three awaiting trial and one
was committed for trial in the higher court
The payroll for the month was
passed, Sergeant Phillipson being
allowed pay at the same rate as the
chief during the time he was acting
chief.
The commission adjourned until
April  8,

With
"The  Indians  of  the  north   have
suffered a particularly severe winter
this year, and have been unable to
do any hunting until    this    month
when the mild weather came."
That was the statement made to
The Capital this morning by H.
Laird, who is a guest at the Alberta.
Mr. Laird came into the city for the
purpose of securing supplies, and
will return north in a week.
"There will be a bigger fur catch
this year than last year," said Mr.
Laird, "but the Indians have been
unable to do anything towards securing the fur until this month. The
snow has been so dep that they have
been unable to get into the bush,
and the cold has been very severe.

SEEKING MORE PAY
Men
Engaged in Work of Opening Up
Streets Want 45 Cents
a Hour.
Suspension   of   Operations   in   Some
Parts of the City as a Result
of Demands
As a result of the agitation for
Increased pay on the part of the
workmen engaged in opening up the
streets, there has been a suspension
of operations in some locations. The
demand of the workmen is for 4 5
cents an hour instead of 37% cents,
which is the minimum amount that
can be paid under the contracts with
the city.
Following the decision of the city
council last Monday evening in
which the different employing departments were recommended to go
into the matter with the object in
view of seeing that, wages were paiu
which were deemed necessary, the
Industrial workers' association met
and expressed themselves as approving of the course of the council.
The council has brought the pay
of all men who are engaged in sewer
work up to 45 cents an hour and it
is understood to be the policy of the
council to grade the work so that
that which is heavy or calls for additional skill will be paid at this increased rate.
The Industrial workers have taken
a vote on the question of whether
there should be a cessation of work
if the contractors did not advance
the rate to 45 cents. At the meeting
various plans were suggested. W.
Casey suggested that instead of stopping work they might adopt the Sabotage system in which the men,
while acepting the pay offered, continue work by doing as little as possible and damaging the tools, etc.,
used.
This was turned down by the
workers.
The vot ! 'n favor of stopping work
contracts where the pay was not increased stood 4 37 for and 41
against.
Several of the contractors had
agreed to advance the pay, while
quite an amount of work is being
done under station work and hence
is progressing as usual. The city
work is practically unaffected. t

Col. Davis, the city engineer, returned from the south by the Prince
George. He spent the time lie. was
away largely with the engineering
departments in Vancouver and Victoria, getting Information which may
lie of advantage in connection with
work here, the experience of the
southern cities being useful in dealing with some of the propositions
lacing tliis place.
A robbery of a mail sack on the

ien estimated  lhat    $10,000    was
ken from the bag which had the
■ing cut.   The first report was that
ild  dust had  been  taken,  but  this
not likely as no gold dust is for-
arded  from  here.    The local post
office officials know nothing or the
matter,  the looting being done  apparently on board the steamer.
Tlie Directors of the Hospital met
on Wednesday afternoon at the
court house for the • transaction of
business.
The report of the matron, which
was received, showed that there
were ten patients in tlie building,
with a number of others awaiting admission. The Masonic, Daughters of
the Empire and Eighth and Ninth
Avenue wards had already been
furnished. The need of an additional nurse was urged by the matron
and also some alterations in connection with the operating section.
The various matters after discussion were referred to the House
Committee.
A letter sent by the executive committee to Dr. Eggert, the G. T. P.
surgeon, in reply to a request as to
what rates would be charged for
employees coining in from the company was read and  approved of.
Tlie'letter stated that while the
Board wished to do the best for all
employees it was impossible to
quote lower rates than those regularly charged by the institution.
The 'etter of Dr. Kergin, received
some time before, dealing with a
similar proposition as to contract
patients was ordered to be replied to
in the same way.
The Medical Association in reply
to a request to submit a plan for
dealing with those patients who entered the hospital without having
any choice as to a medical man. The
association agreed that all regularly
qualified practitioners in the city
should be regarded as members of
the staff. They should each in turn
take their duty as house surgeon,
being ready to answer all calls during their month for such emergency
cases. In case the docfor for the
month could not be procured the
others should be ready to attend
This was referred also to the
House Committee.
A vote of thanks was passed
unanimously to the Electric Light
Committee of the city council for
the courtesy extended the hospital in
furnishing lights on the evening of
the formal opening.
The Ladles' Auxiliary were also
cordially thanked for the way in
which it had taken charge of the
arrangements  for  the  reception.
A letter was received from William Manson, M. P. P., in whicn he
advised that formal application be
made to have the hospital entered
with the Government as entitled to
assistance under the act.
This was ordered  to be done.
Mr. Manson alsc\ replied that in
response to a request he was getting
the necessary forms and books that
would be required by the Board and

LONDON, March 3.—After four
days of unspirited debate had been

CANADA'S CRIMINAL LAW
Rev. Dr. Shearer waited upon Sir
Wilfrid Laurier recently and asked
for a number of amendments to the
criminal code. He suggested that it
be made more difficult for offenders
to get what Is known as "straw"
bail for persons who have been convicted and enter an appeal. Under
existing conditions, Dr. Shearer says,
bail given by men of no standing Is
accepted.
Another suggested amendment to
the criminal code was that the police
of cities should be given the same
right to raid disorderly houses as
they have to raid gambling joints.
Under the law as it stands disorderly
houses can be raided only when it is
expected that liquor is sold and a
warrant has been issued empowering
police to search for it.

Steel Company was followed by a
rloutous demonstration participated
In by nearly 500 strike sympathizers. James Sharp, mine manager,

W. E. •Zwickey, manager of the
Rambler-Cariboo mine, reports that
a strike of six feet of steel galena,
running 170 ounces of silver to the
ton nas been made on that property.
The new discovered is at the 1,000
foot level and is regarded as proof
that the veins on this property continue to deptli with their values in-
creased rather than im; aired.
Acting on secret orders H. M. C. S.
Rainbow, which it was supposed
would remain at Vancouver for several days, left port last Saturday to
proceed to the fishing grounds at
once on the hunt for more poachers.
Although for obvious reasons, her

1 PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Friday,  March  3,   1911
BUILDING   INCREASE
Grand Record Made in Principal Cities
of the Dominion of Canada
Last Year.
Outlook    for   the    Present    Twelve
Months Is A cry Promising—A
Good   Start   Is   Mude
The grand total for building operations in 190!) recedes to a position of secondary importance when
compared to the enormous investment made In 1910. There Is every
reason to believe that the year 1911
will be a still greater and more
widespread period of activity in
every way than the one which has
just come to a close. At no time in
the past has the country experienced
a more satisfactory mid-winter season, nor at any time has it looked
forward to so heavy a volume of Important work as is scheduled immediately ahead. The turn of the calendar witnessed precisely the same
accelerating tendency which obtained a year ago, with all sections
pushing steadily onward in a.growth
and development which . far overshadows the records of progress
made in any previous corresponding
period, says a commercial journal.
Official returns submitted to
"Construction" from twenty-four cities located in every province and
section of the Dominion record an
aggregate total for permits issued,
amounting to $94,129,423 as against
$64,509,620 in the year 1909. This
represents an average gain of forty-
five per cent, or a volume of work
nearly half again as great as was
carried out in the preceding twelve
months. Although a few more losses
are recorded than were noted in the
last annual report, the figures in a
number of instances fail materially
to reflect the full extent of prosperity actually enjo.ved. This is equally
true concerning many of the cities
which registered gains. Vancouver,
for instance, where the volume of
new building amounted to $13,150,-
365, reports that in territory contiguous to the city and which should
in every way come within the scope
of its jurisdiction, operations were
carried on to the extent of $4,000,-
000, of which no record has been
kept. Montreal, likewise, has a valid claim in this respect, and if the
work in the suburbs of the city were
included, it would substantially add
to the handsome total of $15,815,-
859, otherwise attained. Montreal's
gain as it stands, is 103 per cent, a
most splendid showing, to say the
least, while that of Vancouver (63
per cent) is no less remarkable when
one considers the big advance made
in the previous year.
All in all, Canada' can regard its
accomplishment for the year with no
little degree of satisfaction. Toronto's mighty total of $21,127,782 in
itself, which is approximately three
millions more than was noted in her
previous figures, attests eloquently
to a growing commercial and industrial importance; such as possibly
cannot be duplicated by any city of
like size on the entire continent. Ontario, on the whole, prospered exceedingly well, although the majority of decreases noted fell in thia
province. Ottawa failed to equal her
previous figures by 32 per cent, Fort
William is behind in 19 per cent and
Windsor and London are in the ar-
rear to the extent of five and seven
per cent in order named. Tlio
amounts registered in all these
places, however, are almost double
tlie totals recorded in 1908. On the
other hand, Hamilton undertook new
work aggregating in cost $2,604,-
6or, as compared with $1,623,100 In
the year before. Berlin surpassed
its former mark by XI per cent;
Brantford shot forward 56 per cent!
Pet.erboro 111:ic 1.. a gain of 60 per
rent, and i'eirt. Arthur and St. Thomas advanced respectively si and nine
per cent, in all cases, the results
noted are gratifying in the extreme.
in Manitoba, Winnipeg made good
the early forecast of a fifteen million dollar year. Her amount; in
fact, is just a trifle better, and Judging from the splendid .showing made
in the final month when the aggregate value for permits amounted to
close on a million, operations in the
next twelve months will be proportionately greater. Brandon, also,
with a total of $ 1,22-1,3.8.5 to her
credit, representing a gain of 249
per cent, flourished to an unusually
marked degree. These figures reflect
in a fairly accurate manner'the high
tension of activity throughout the
west In general. Saskatchewan
forged ahead at a lively clip as is
evidenced in Regina's total of $2,-
351,288 and Prince Albert's advance
of 367 per cent, the highest percentage Increase noted for the year. The
only loss in the entire west occurred
in the case of    Lethbrtdge,    which

Prince Rupert, B. C.
failed to equal its former figures by
four per cent, a decrease considering
the heavy investment made in 1909
of very slight proportion indeed. Calgary, on the other hand, has $5,509,-
594 to her credit, and Edmonton a
total of $2,161,356, the increase In
either case being 130 and one per
cent, respectively. Another gain
worthy of note is that of Victoria
(35 per cent), which in addition to
Vancouver's big increase previously
mentioned,'indicates a most wholesome state of afafirs in the Pacific
Coast district.
In the Maritime Provinces, hoth
St. John and Sydriey topped their
previous figures, although Halifax is
Inthe arrear by 25 per cent. St.
John and Sydney's increase is 41
and nine per cent, in order named,
end the amounts noted show a steady
consistent growth, which is quite
representative of the east in general.
Considering the remarkably sound
manner in which the year closed,
and the larger volume of Important
work immediately ahead, 1911 will
be a hummer in every respect. Of
course, the reciprocity pact is somethings to be reckoned with, and as
to what effect it will exert on manufacturing and industrial improvements remains to be seen. Aside
from this one uncertain feature,
however, the country has never before beheld such a promising outlook, and architects, contractors and
material firms can well prepare for
a period of unparalleled activity and
development.

ELECT OFFICERS
Kitsumknlum    Conservatives    Hold
Annual Meeting and Select

At the annual meeting of the Klt-

there was a large turnout of members, and judging from the Interest
taken together with the amount of

Good roads through the Valley
was the principal subject taken up,
and the members were unanimous in
their desire' that the forenianshlp
should be given to a local man. It
was suggested a local man be recommended to the superintendent of
roads, and following this suggestion
it was put to a motion and vote,
A. E. Johnstone being tlie man
unanimously selected for recommendation.
The election of officers for the
ensuing year resulted  as follows:

DESERT DIMINISHING
Sahara   Is   Growing   Less—Portions
Are Now Coming Within

The worthless area of the Sahara
Desert is proving smaller than has
been believed. Professor E. F. Gau-
tier, the first explorer since 1826 to
cross from Algeria to the Niger,
found in the Adrai plateau, 360 miles
from Gao on the Niger, a wide belt
of steppe, having from six to twelve
inches of rain per year, and covered
with ponds and grasses. Evidences
of a large stone age population
abound, including weapons, grinding
stones, rock drawings and graves. It

ORIGINALITY IN UEDHOOM
Every woman should have a pretty bedroom and should see that It is
not the duplicate of many others,
but has some touch of orignality
about its color schemes and decorations that set it apart as individual
to herself.
For a room which receives all the
sunshine never choose a shiny paper,
but a dull finished one. A gray bedroom may sound colorless at first
hearing, but one of the prettiest
rooms was carried out in this neutral shade.
First of all, the walls were tinted
a delicate pale gray with a warm
tinge in it, and the ceiling, which
was brought down to the picture
molding, was white. A paneled effect was given on the wall by means
of stenciling In soft shades of lilac
and green with soft browns, thus
taking away any suggestion of monotony.
Gray enameled furniture further
carried out the scheme and the cushions, bedspread, curtains and table
covers were all of gray linen stenciled in the same hues as the walls,
while the rugs that covered the
stained gray floor were gray green
In color. The mirror that hung on
the wall furnished a note of contrast
In its framework of dull gold, and
Hie pictures on the walls completed
the harmony in their setting of gray
stained wood and white enamel.
Another excellent scheme for a
girl's bedroom may be carried out in
the following way:
Walls of soft cream color with a
stencil design in soft pinky mauve
shades.
Hangings of ashes of roses, linen
and furniture of wickerwork stained
a soft brownish purple.
Bands of cream colored linen
willi thee stenciled designs may be
apllqued on to all the hangings of
the room, such as the curtains and
cushion covers, and the rugs on the
floor may he soft, of oriental colors.

SETTLERS ASSURED
Surveyor  General  Tells  of  Plans for
Filling Up the Northern
Area.
Large Sums Will He Spent in Mak-
ing Suneys Along Line
of «. T. P.
"Official advices indicate, that
there will be quite a large influx of
settlers to British Columbia this
year. The Provincial Government is
quite alive to the situation as no less
than $450,000 will be expended In
making surveys on tlie various large
reserves, especially on the line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian
Northern Railways as well as on the
Queen Charlotte Islands," said Mr.
E. B. McKay, provincial surveyor-
general, to a representative of the
Province at the Hotel Vancouver a
few days ago.
This amount exceeds last year's
appropriation by $150,000 and Is
highly significant," continued Mr.
McKay. "The policy of the govern-
ment Inestablishing the reserves embracing millions of acres is working
well. Bona fide settlers have the
privilege of taking up homesteads
within these reserves after the department of lands has made selections of lands for university purposes.
"The remainder is also open for
purchase whenever authorized by
order-in-council. Quite a number of
settlers have taken up homesteads
oh Graham Island and they seem to
be well satisfied with the outlook. I
have reason to believe that the various colonization companies operating in Northern British Columbia
are giving the people a square
deal."
Mr. McKay has been a resident of
British Columbia for . thirty-five
years. His first visit to the site of
the city of Vancouver was July 1,
1875. Dense forest fringed the entire inlet. The only buildings here
then were tlie Hastings Mill, a store
and a hotel.

Given Up Idea of Winning
Yukon Action
The celebrated c'alm of Norman
McLean of Vancouver, against the
Dominion Government for the cancellation of a dredging lease on Dominion Creek in the Yukon in 1901
has come to a sudden ending.
The Exchequer and Supreme
Courts and Privy Council had passed
upon technical points, the last two
being in McLean's favor and the
case was referred back to the Exchequer court for trial on its merits.
For the past two or three years
McLean had been privately trying to
get. the Dominion Government to settle out of court by paying him a
large sum of money. He demanded
as much as $350,000 in settlement
of his claim.
The case was set for hearing, but
McLean withdrew and allowed the
decision to be recorded against him,
the government agreeing to pay its
own  costs.

INCONSISTENCY
To those who have followed the
municipal politics of Prince Rupert
the policy of tlie Optimist, the recognized organ of the faction in the
city that dominated last year's council, is a most peculiar one. Tlie
course pursued by that paper lias
been one of obstructive criticism with
respect to the present city council
and all that it does. Within the last
few days it gave voice to sentiments
that could only be calculated to as-
• sist in fomenting trouble in an industrial way in the city. It is true
that a wave of repentance seemed to
have passed over that organ and had
" its effect for one day so that a more
sane course was pursued, but again
it returns to ill-advised criticism and
demands for what it knows is an ab-
solutely foolish course to advocate—
namely the resignation of the city
council. Incalculable injury can be
done by such pointless criticism as
that paper indulges in and its own
directors and controllers only need
to be appealed to on that point.
Last year it will be remembered
that a section of the press indulged
in most severe criticism of the council of that day. The language then
used almost approached what is being made use of against tbe present
council. The Optimist of that day
in fact called for resignation on the
part of the sitting council.
What was the stand taken by the
council of last year who were affected by the criticism? It was in
short this, "We do not care personally for the criticism. They can say
what they like about us, but they are
doing incalculable injury on the outside to the city. 'They are knocking
the town' said the mayor, and he
knew it, owing to the trips he took.
These papers should have some patriotism to the city of Prince Rupert."
Aid. Pattullo even went to the extent of explaining that he and his
friends on the council were forced
to purchase the Optimist in order to
wipe out this damaging criticism
that was doing so much to "knock
the town."
Where is the consistency on the
part of these very men who served
in last year's council and who with
their friends are supposed to be in
absolute control of the Optimist to-,
day? If these men were sincere last
year in denouncing such a course as
they did with respect to newspaper
criticisms wliere is their influence
today? There is a lack of consistency?
course was in a position at once to
meet it and show the ridiculous side
to it but the story is kept going.
Not only will Prince Rupert be the
terminus of the G. T. P., but it is
safe to say that no railway will invade northern British Columbia that
will not take steps to bring its ocean
terminus in close touch with this
port to get the advantage of the
ocean shipping that must come to
this port. It is well known that
there are engineers seeking a direct
route from the Naas to Prince Rupert, presumably as the Pacific division of Mann's proposed transcontinental railroad in the north.
The investor need never have any
loubts as to the term in us of the
G ,T. P. If any of them have them,
citizens of Prince Rupert would
be perfectly willing to abide by the
result of a reference to either the
Dominion Government or the Pro-
vincial Government.
It is Prince Rupert the G. T. P. Is
particularly wedded to. That company will not have connection with
Vancouver until the main line Is
built to this port. The real terminus
of the line will be Prince Rupert
and from here the direct steamers
will ply to the Orient and to Europe
by way of the Mediterranean.
SHOWED  WISDOM
The decision of the working men
of the city at their mass meeting a
few evenings ago to refrain from
what is known as the Sabotage system of combatting employers is to be
commended. The putting forth of
a suggestion to resort to that method reflects discredit and condemnation upon those responsible.
That that class known as "foreign
laborers" do not approve of such dia,
bolical methods of conducting matters will have a tendency to raise
that class of workers in the estimation of many who had not before
been very favorably inclined to
them. The proposition which means
the doing of as little work as possible and damaging tools and property, will not tend to raise those who
put it forward in the eyes of right-
thinking citizens. It savors too
much of Butte, where industrial
wars have been carried on in a manner that was not creditable to workers ,or employers. In British Columbia such conditions can never be
allowed to be introduced. Any class
of workers that will put forward
such a plan will assuredly drop in
public estimation. Their cause will
be injured and not benefitted by
such tactics. To the credit of the
workmen they turned down such a
scheme.
HOSPITAL  FUNDS
A STUPID STORY
A stupid rumor which interested
parties in the south take pleasure in
circulating in order to work to the
disadvantage of Prince Rupert, is
that the G. T. P. may not make this
its Pacific. Coast terminus. To those
who take time to reflect, the least
such a story must appear stupid. It
Is scarcely worth contradicting. The
fact, however, that It comes up with
such regularity warrants some attention being given It. Prince Rupert's location is dependent now not j
alone on the G. T, l'., but Is .endorsed
as a terminal point'by the Dominion
Government and the Provincial Government, Each of those governments
has ii'iii Itself in a large degree to
Hi" putting of tlie townsite on the
markel as tlie terminus of the
ti. T. iv The Provincial Government wns :i partner in ihe Bale of
lots. Tin' Dominion Government
lias approved of the plans of the
company for Ihis location ,'uiil
lent its moral support to tlie marketing of the townsite. It has committed itself to works dependent upon
this  being tlie terminus.
In view of all these facts it is absolutely Impossible for a change of
location. The G. T. P. has no desire
to alter its location from here and
even if it, did the governments of the
Province and of tlie Dominion would
not permit of such a move.
There can be no doubt whatever
upon the score of Prince Rupert's
stability and the studied efforts of
those who are continually circulating
this report should avail nothing with
those who think for a moment upon
the situation. Only as late as
last week the city engineer while in
the south had this pet theory of the
knockers   put   up   to   him.     lie,   ol
The opening of the hospital and
the ready filling of the wards which
is following it indicates that Prince
Rupert before many months pass
will have to face the question of increased accommodation along this
line. The capacity of the home for
the sick is only about 30 at the most,
it would appear that before many
months have gone past this accommodation will be taxed.
It has long been felt that in the
providing of funds some more satisfactory way of getting the necessary
funds to maintain the institution
than by voluntary contributions will
have to be found. The question of
providing adequately for hospitals is
not confined to Prince Rupert. Al-
most.every city has a similar complication to face.
The government of the State of
Victoria, Australia, proposes to introduce a charities tax to which all
wage earners will have to contribute.
Some of the hospitals are languishing for lack of funds and it Is hoped
the tax will have the effect of placing I hem on a sound financial
foundation.
PROTEST FROM COLDSTREAM
Strong  Resolution  Agnlnsl   Free  Entry of I'liiit  Forwarded to
sic Wilfrid  Lnurler
A well attended meeting of tlie
fruit growers of Coldstream Municipality was held on Wednesday of
last week, with Mr. J. Kidston in
the chair. The following resolution
was passed unanimously and wired
to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and Martin
Burrell, M. P.:
"To tne Right Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier,   P.   C,  G.   C.   M.  G.,  K.   C,
Premier of the Dominion Government of Canada:
"The Humble Petition of the Ratepayers and Residents of tfce District  Municipality  of  Coldstream, Vernon, B. C.
"Whereas,   the  Dominion  Government   is   about   to   Introduce   a   bill
providing   for   reciprocity   with   the
United States of America on certain
commodities under which Is Included
fruit;  and,
"Whereas, the inhabitants of the
said District Municipality of Coldstream are dependent entirely on
the fruit industry for their subsistence and the future prosperity of
the district;
"We, your petitioners, desire to
lay before the Houses of the Dominion Parliament the views of this district as hereunder set forward:
"Opinions may and do differ as to
the relative merits of protection and
free trade, but there can be no difference of opinion on the point that,
if protection is given at all, it should
be given equally to all interests according to requirements. It seems
to be accepted that manufacturers
are entitled to protection, especially
during the early days of any industry.
"So far as need of protection is
concerned in the building up of an
industry, fruit growing stands in
much greater need of protection than
any manufactory, as must be plain
on the face of it to anyone conversant with the conditions of this particular industry.
"A manufactory can start in on
production as soon as the plant is
completed, An orchard after being
laid out has to be tended for quite
a number of years at a considerable
outlay of capital before any return
can be hoped for. The newer orchards of British Columbia, planted
in recent years, and comprising an
immense acreage, are just now coming into bearing, and the owners
look to current conditions for marketing their fruit to advantage. No
worse time as regards the fruit industry in this province could have
been chosen to remove the duty on
imported fruit.
"In ten years the fruit industry
of British Columbia, which is now
in its infancy, should be in a position to carry the battle of competition across the border, having used
the Interval to build up itsh connections in the home market, with the
help of the very moderate protection
hitherto afforded.
"At the present time, the home
markets are mostly in the hands of
the American producer who has the
advantage of many years start, has
organized thoroughly for the fight
and has admittedly a distinct advantage over us in the cost of production. Even with the present protection, it will be a long and uphill
fight to get the home markets out of
the hands of the Americans—without it, the fight will be so long and
uphill that many British Columbian
producers will go under. Handicapped in this way in the home
markets, our efforts to develop sufficiently to invade foreign territory
are certain to fail for many years, if
not altogether.
"An enormous amount of capital
has been invested in orchards in
British Columbia during the past six
years, the period during which the
fruit industry has been strenuously
promoted, and the fruit growers
looked to a continuance of the current conditions to- enable them to
realize interest in their invested
capital , out of which up to the present time it has been practically Impossible  to  obtain  any  return.
"We unanimously consider that
the Dominion Houses of Parliament
should refuse to sanction the removal of the duty on fruit at the
present time. There is no justice in
sacrificing the interests of an infant
industry for the benefit of a full-
grown industry which is in a very
prosperous state under present conditions.
"And your petitioners, as in duty
hound, will forever pray, etc.
(Signed).
"JOHN  KIDSTON,
"Acting Reeve,
"E.   HENDERSON,
"Clerk."
EXCLUDE ASIATICS
Australian Government  Takes Slcps
to Prevent Japanese spying
nut l,ami
The Australian federal government has gone a step further In ils
campaign against tlie Asiatics In
Australasia. Regulations have just
been issued which will have the effect of practically expelling the
Orientals who are engaged in the
pearl fisheries on the nortli coast of
West Australia. Although the trade
is worth to the Commonwealth about
one hundred thousand pounds sterling, the government has made no
scruple in carrying out its policy.
The ostensible reason of the ministry's act on is that the "White
Australia" policy permits of no Infringements such as are caused by
the presence of pearlers on the coasts
bul the real reason is thai the authorities charged with the duty of
securing the defence of I lie island
continent are anxious lest the Jap-
inese should have an opportunity of
spying out the land.

THE FASTEST CITY
Irkutsk in Siberia  Has a   Reputation
as a Lively
Centre.
Immense Sums Are Spent on Pleasure in tlie Capital of the
Country
Which is the fastest city in the
world? An American banker, Mr.
Woodruff, who is a globe-trotter of
renown, plumps for Irkutsk, the capital of eastern Siberia, says an exchange. He Is familiar with Paris,
London, Budapest, Vienna, New
York and other capitals, but he declares that for genuine wickedness
they afe outclassed by Irkutsk.
"Irkutsk Is not only the wickedest, but it is the fastest city in the
world, ' says Mr. Woodruff, soon after his return to New York. "There is
more night life in that little town
of 100,000 people than there is in
all Paris or New York. In one of
the gambling houses there I saw as
much as $100,000 staked on the turn
of a card a dozen times in the evening. Why, the gamblers at Monte
Carlo are pikers compared with
some of the sporty citizens of Irkutsk. In'the cafes I saw gay parties
drinking bottle after bottle of wine
at £4 per bottle. In all my travels I
have never seen so many beautiful
and well-dressed women—and women of all nationalities.
• "The opera there is almost as
brilliant as the opera in Paris.
Duels, suicides and murders are of
weekly occurrence, but a forma! reception at St. Petersburg could not
boast of any more culture than is to
be found at a smart entertainment
in one of the fashionable homes in
this Siberian city. If any imagines
New York is swift, a visit to Irkutsk will open his eys. The quintessence of vice is to be found
there,"
Irkutslk has among its Citizens
more millionaires than any city of
its size in the world, and they have
to spend their money in tlie city, for
the reason that they are not allowed
to leave the province. Most of them
—especially tlie rich ones—are convicts who have amassed fortunes in
gold mining. Tlie Baibai mountains
near Irkutsk, are filled with rich
'veins of gold and it is no exaggera
tion to say that thousands of men in
this comparatively small town in the
heart of Siberia have become rich
beyond the dreams of avarice. The
flood of gold has naturally attracted
all the luxuries of the world and as
usual the luxuries have brought the
vices.
The Monastery of St. Innocent
which cost upward of $7,000,000, is
one of the finest specimens of architecture in the world. Its cathedrals
vie wtih any to be found in Russia
St. Basil's alone excepted. Its opera house is eclipsed only by the opera in Paris.
With these refinements came gorgeous hotels and cafes. The principal cafe in Irkutsk is as grand as
anything in New York and its prices
are at least four times as high. All
the delicacies of the world are to
be had, Including the rarest of
wines are to be had, and at prices
that would stagger Pittsburg millionaires.
As the city Is a capital, it is well
supplied with officials, the governor-
general and civil governor having
each no less than three substitutes.
Gilded youths from St. Petersburg
and Moscow are sent there for discipline, and the demi-monde from all
over Europe and Asia are there In
large numbers.
Irkutsk is a meeting place for the
vicious from all quarters of the
globe. There is nothing secret
about any of the vice. Every type
of beauty is to be found—beautiful
geisha girls in native costume vieing
with Viennese and Paris women In
tlie latest creations. All the gambling houses are wide open, and,
more important, conducted under
police protection. The cafes never
close and it is between the hours of
midnight and four In the morning
that they are at their liveliest.
Everyone drinks; most of the Russian women smoke cigars, leaving
their Parisian sisters to enjoy a
cigarette.
Tragedies  Are Frequent
Tragedies, as might be expected,
are frequent, and suicides are so
numerous that scarcely any attention is paid to them except by the
immediate friends or relatives.
There is extreme poverty in certain
districts and there is a large class
fo poor ex-convicts who make trouble from time to time. A regiment
of 1,000 soldiers as well as 200
mounted Cossacks are needed to preserve order and when disturbances
arise they make arrests by the whole-
. sale. As long as these rich residents of Irkutsk content themselves
with  being fleeced by women  from
Paris and Vienna with drinking
themselves to death or even murdering each other, the Russian authorities don't care. The only thing the
officials insist upon is that the residents do not leave the province.
Every road is carefully guarded
and no one is allowed to board a
train on the trans-Siberian railroad
in either direction without having
his passport scrutinized by at least
half a dozen officials. A native of
Irkutsk has to make the best of his
life there. Escape is impossible.
Even the nearest city, Krasnoyarsk,
is 570 miles away.
During the season, which, as in all
Russian cities, is during the winter,
all sorts of festivities are in progress. In addition to the opera, there
are theatres, concerts by famous
musicians, and balls of almost Viennese brilliance. The most costly favors are distributed at hese balls,
and dances are almost Invarlbly
given for the entertainment of
guests. There are scores of homes
In Irkutsk which cost upwards of a
million dollars , nearly al of them
with private ball rooms and picture
galleries.
Not unti' everyone has drunk so
much champagne that the servants
have to assist them home, is an
event of this kind concluded.
Strange as it may seem, the demi-
mondaines seem to be received on
a basis of equality with the so-called
respectable element. The very air
seems surcharged with talk of beautiful mistresses, duels and favors
won.
LICENSE PLEBISCITE
CHILLIWACK—In the course of
a week or ten days there will be a
plebiscite in this city upon the
question of increasing the number
of liquor licenses now in force from
two to the number allowed by the
provincial liquor laws to a town of
this size. The decision of the city
council to submit this matter to the
people was the outcome of a largely
signed petition submitted to the
council at ft previous meeting asking
that the number of licenses be increased, and that certain restrictions
be placed upon the licensees. The
petition was laid over until Monday
night's meeting, when it was consid
ered and discussed In the presence
of a large audience, who appeared in
support of and to- protest against it.
A motion by Alderman Waddington
seconded by Alderman Gervan, that
the number of liquor licenses be increased was lost, the other three
members of the board being of the
opinion that no increase should be
made until the city's population had
been determined. Mr. C. J. Hatch,
proprietor of the Commercial Hotel,
who was the chief instigator of the
petition, then offered to pay the
expenses of a plebiscite if the coun
oil would authorize one. Mr. Hatch's
offer was at first accepted, but upon
further consideration it was thought
that a better way would be to have
a petition asking for the plebiscite
submitted to the council upon re
ceipt of which the council would authorize the plebiscite, appoint an official returning officer and pay the
expense. It will be necessary to secure the signatures of one-fifth of
those qualified to vote at the last
mayoralty election to the petition,
and those entitled to vote then may
also vote on the plebiscite. There
are now two licensed hotels in Chil-
liwack, while the provincial laws
allow four to a town of its population.
FATHER'S DEATH
One of the best stories going the
rounds of the Smart Set papers
down below Is the following:
A boy accidentally hearing that
li is father several years before had
met n tragic death asked his mother
to tell him about the matter. She
replied that slie would when lie ti ne]
grown older. On his twenty-first
birthday the son recalled to bis
mother tlie promise she had made
him, She kept her word. The
mother told of having been taken
to the theatre by the father one
evening when a famous dancer was
drawing crowded and enthusiastic
audiences. This particular night the
dancer was given an ovation. In response to the whllrwlnd of applause
and In endeavoring to excel herself,
the fair devotee of Terpsichore tore
a part of her flimsy costume,
"I can remember the scene as if it
were bntit yesterday," continued the
mother. "The dancer was greatly
embarassed over the incident which
had befallen her. Running to the
front, of tlie stage, she inquired in
a   sweet,   seductive   voice:
'"Is there any gentleman In the
audience who can give tne a pin?'
"Your father was killed in the
rush."
MENTAL  HOSPITAL
Province of British Columbia is Providing Well for Insane Section
of Inhabitants.
Corner Stone of Institution Is Laid
at Coquitlani by Lieutenant Governor
One million and a half dollars is
the estimated cost of the completed
mental hospital which is being established at Coquitlani by the Provincial Government for the mentally
afflicted, the first wing of which is
now in course of construction. Such
an undertaking on behalf of those
poor unfortunates who have been
deprived of their reason is considered by all who have come In contact with the scheme to speak volumes for the public spiritednoss and
the humanitarian principles which
actuate the Provincial Government
and the legislators who vote the
money.
At the head of the department
within whose scope this institution
lies, is Dr. Young, the provincial
secretary, who is heart and soul in
tlhe work of making adequate provision for the sick and afflicted on
the most modern and up-to-date
curative lines known to science. The
minister has received whole-hearted
support, both from his colleagues in
the cabinet and from the whole of
the members of the Legislature in
his laudable work.
Dr. Doherty, the superintendent of
the provincial asylum, is an able
lieutenant. Embued with the utmost
enthusiasm in his work and blessed
with the most optimistic spirit, he
has n convincing personality and
seems to carry all before him, "No
straight jackets and no padded
cells" is his motto in dealing with
the mentally afflicted, and if in the
acute stage a patient needs restraint
it is soothingly exercised by the attendants, and everything is done to
arouse interest in the mind'of the
patients.
The special method of treatment Is
to do away with mechanical restraint
of all kind and, to extend as much
liberty as possible to the patients
compatible with their welfare. Under this treatment the very best results are being achieved. One significant illustration of this was
pointed out by Dr. Young, that is,
the change of the name of the insti
tution from "asylum" to "mental
hospital."
As has been stated, one of the
chief methods of the new treatment
Is to Interest the patients In some
hobby or employment, and several
interesting instances of their work
are to be seen on the hospital farm.
A considerable amount of furniture,
chairs, sideboards and such like has
been constructed by them, and one
noticeable thing, wonderful in Its
conception and ability, is the fixing
of a most complicated but serviceable lock to a safe. This safe was
discarded as being useless, when one
of the patients, a locksmith by trade,
got to work on it and ultimately repaired it, turning it out as the saying goes "as good as new." The lock
is specially worthy of attention. It
is a most complicated and ingenious
contrivance, yet simple in its action,
and would puzzle the most expert
safe breaker. Dr. Doherty is particularly proud of this achievement by
one of his patients.
Tlie building is being erected by
the Westliolme Lumber Company.
Tlie cornerstone of the first section of the institution was laid on
last. Saturday afternon by His Honor
the Lieutenant Governor, T. W.
Paterson. This will be the chronic
male hospital, and Is one of seven
similar main buildings, each complete In Itself, In addition to which
there will be workshops for the patients, a laundry, attendants' quarters and administration offices.
Surrounded by a farm one thousand acres In extent, about a mile
and ii half beyond Westminster Junction, the hospital it being erected in
a beautiful situation facing an ideal
landscape such as would delight the
soul of an artist to portray. The
site of the Institution is on a high
plateau overlooking the junction of
the Coquitlani and Fraser rivers, and
in its treatment tlie foreground will
be terraced right down to the main
drive which will encircle the front
portion of the buildings in the shape
of a horse-shoe.
The size of the first wing of the
building will be 408 feet in length,
by 150 feet in width and four storeys
high, and it will have a capacity for
COO patients, with dayrooms, dormitories, hospital and necessary offices complete. It will cost $430,-
imiO. This is on the extreme end of
one side of the horse-shoo, and is for
chronic male cases. Under the
scheme a similar building will be
constructed on the other side of the
horse-shoe for female patients.

A LONELY BUFFALO
One of Herd in Canadian National Park
is Ostracised by His
Fellows.
Bison  Family Hus Solved the Question   of   Dealing   with
the Aged
Few visitors to the, Canadian National Buffalo park, at Wainwrlght,
Alberta, fail to note the fact that of
the upwards of one thousand inmates, there is one of the finest
specimens In tlie park—a giant male
with a large bushy head surmounted
by symmetrically curved, sharp-
pointed, upstanding horns. The
short, thick neck merges into massive shaggy, shoulders which tower
above short, slender forelegs, so
short and so small as to appear out
of all proportion to the bulk they
sustain.
While the other members of the
big herd are to be found in groups
of from a score to a hundred each,
this one is always alone. He never
approaches one of the groups and is
as completely ignored by his fellows
as if he did not exist. In tlie great
corral, containing 110,000 acres, he
occupies a corner which is, apparently by common consent, set apart
for his exclusive use. Here he may
be seen standing on the crest of
some hummock, his huge bulk outlined against the sky, or half concealed in the brush of some coulee.
Always he is alone, and usually his
head is turned toward the west, as
if awaiting the summons to join the
millions of his species which have
disappeared before the westward
march of empire.
A few months ago he was the recognized leader of the herd and
wielded a sway as despotic as that
of any monarch who ever occupied
a throne. Now hp is an outcast, ostracized from the society of his
kind, the object of the contempt of
the meanest of his one-time subjects. He is an "outlaw," doomed
to spend the remainder of his days
in seclusion, the victim of an inexorable law that has been in force
ever since the first of his species
roamed the plains of North America.
Ages  before  Dr.   Osier  advocated
the ridding of human society of the
burden of the aged and the decrepit
nature   had   provided   for   the   survival of the fittest in the brute creation.     When     tlie     male     elephant
readies an advanced age it is driven
from    the    herd    and    becomes    a
"rogue."     Henceforth     it     is   compelled   to  live  and   feed   alone,  and
any attempt to inflict its society upon its fellows is met with a prompt
and  often  severe  rebuke.     It  Is so
with  the buffalo.    Al  tlie    age    of
eight  to ten years the male buffalo
becomes   superannuated,   and   is   by
the other members of the herd pronounced an outlaw.    It is banished
from tlie society of its kind, and its
very   existence   ignored.     It   sometimes happens  that the  outlaw,  although   it  has   reached   the   age   of
compulsory  retirement,   is  far  from
being infirm.    In this case it is likely  to  resent  being  sent  into    exile.
Many a desperate encounter has resulted,  but  the outcome  has always
been the same—the outlaw has been
compelled  to  submit  to  the  punishment imposed upon It.
Although there are now upwards
of one thousand buffalo in tlie Wainwrlght park, there is but one outlaw. None of the others has yet
reached the age limit. Three years
ago Howard Douglas, Dominion commissioner of parks, purchased from
Michael Pablo, a .Mexican half-
breed, of Kallspell, Mont., tho only
large herd of buffalo In existence
aboul 900 head, They were nol
domesticated, inning for years
ranged over a large trad of rough
country In Montana and seldom see-
Ing ii human being. Loud and long
ere the protests thai were voiced
by the press of the States when II
was learned that the entire herd
had been purchased for removal to
Canada. The United States authorities Were severely censured for not
having arranged to retain the herd
as a national attraction, and efforts
were made to Induce Pablo to violate his contract to deliver tlie entire herd io Mr. Douglas, but without avail.
The first shipment of buffalo was
made t<> Wainwrlght early in 1909,
and before tlie end of the summer'
of that year 450 head were safely
lodged in the National park. The
work of rounding up tlie remainder
Of the herd was slow and difficult.
They were shipped In Installments
of r,o to Kin head, the last shlpmenl
arriving  nt   Wainwrlght   in   October,
1910. The total number brought
from Montana was 850. About 50
head were secured from other points
in the Dominion and the States, a
few having been secured in Oklahoma and Texas. The natural increase last year was about 125, making the total number of buffalo now
In the park upwards of a thousand.
There were in the Pablo herd
about 50 outlaws, and after repeated
failures, the attempt to round them
up was abandoned. It was decided
to kill them, and the last great buffalo hunt of the continent was
planned to take place last November.
Two score Canadian sportsmen,
thirsting for big game gore, made
extensive preparations for the chase
Each of the participants were 10 pay
$250 in return for which he was to
have the privilege of killing one buf.
falo and retaining as trophies the
head and skin. While they were
f-agerly awi.irlng die signal to assemble at Kalispell, word came that
the Montana authorities, backed up
by the United States government,
had announced that the hunt could
not take place—that it would be in
violation of the state game laws.
After much interchange of correspondence, diplomatic and otherwise, the hunt was abandoned. The
Canadian government now owns a
herd of outlaw buffalo down in Montana which it cannot capture and
which it is forbidden to kill, and as
a consequence it is very much at a
loss to know what to do with them.
The settlers who have in recent
years encroached upon the Pablo
preserve live in daily fear of the
depredations of 'the outlaws, which
break down fences and trample crops
tinder foot and look in vain to
Washington and to Ottawa for redress.
Great care was exercised by Mr.
Douglas in moving the animals from
Montana to Alberta. They were
transported in stock ears specially
equipped with individual stalls.
These cars were provided with openings in the roofs through which food
and water were supjplied by attendants en route. A speoiai unloading
chute was constructed at the western
end of the Grand Trunk Pacific yards
at Wainwrlght, and a corral, enclosed by a fence ten feet high built
of heavy posts and two-Inch planking, was prepared for the reception
of the animals. This corral was
connected with the park pioper by
a lane enclosed with a ten-foot woven wire fence.
The park, which is owned by the
Canadian government, includes about
five townships. It is surrounded by
a fence constructed of ten-foot spring
steel woven wire fencing, the strongest made. This fence is 75 miles in
length and cost $1,000 a mile. While
it was freely predicted that it would
be impossible, even with all the precautions taken, to confine the animals within an enclosure, the first
one has yet to escape. The buffalo
have become accustomed to the pres
ence of vistors, and may be approached to within a few yards on
foot or in a vehicle. They take to
their heels, however, at the sight of
a man on horseback. This is tlie instinct of self-preservation, Inherited
from a long line of ancestors accustomed to regard a man on horseback as an enemy bent upon their
destruction.
No restrictions are placed upon
visitors to the National Buffalo park,
with the exception that dogs and
firearms are barred. No tract of
land on the continent more suited to
the purpose could be found. It is
ideal grazing land, such as has made
| the Wainwrlght district famous for
Its production of horses and cattle.
The land is rolling and partly wooded. Fires which formerly raged
throughout tlint section every few
years, have destroyed much of the
underbrush. There are many clumps
of poplars which afford shade In
summer and shelter in winter, and
there are numerous Band dunes
which provide the "wallows" which
the buffalo so much enjoy. Scattered
throughoul the park ;hv many little
fresh water lakes wtili sandy beaches and water clear as crystal. Many
small streams find their way through
these lakes to the Battle river which
crosses one corner of the park. A
luxuriant growth of unlive grass provides an abundance of pasturage the
year round. Several hundred tons
of hay are harvested each summer
in tlie park, and n large quantity of
it Is kept constantly on hand to sup-
lily food in case of a severe storm.
During tlie two winters thai tlie park
lias been occupied little of it has,
however, been required. The snow
seldom is so deep that the animals
cannol reach the dry gras beneath il
which they prefer to tlie hay.
In addition to the buffalo, there
are a number of moose, elk and
'leer in the park mid additions are
being made from time to time. During the summer and autumn thousands of wild geese and duck make
lakes, where they are protected from
the hunters, and where they are
conventient to the rich feeding
grounds in the extensive wheat, oats
and barley fields In the surrounding
country.
The Dominion government has
made surveys with a view to extensive improvements within the park.

Edison's most important statement
recently lias been that it is now only
a matter of time, possibly of a very
short time, when a way to manufacture gold will be found. Then, declares the wizard, the financial system of the whole world will be upset.
Edison also predicts that within
the coming century poverty will be
abolished, owing to the discovery of
cheaper methods of manufacture.
Moreover, he declares that the working men of America will precipitate
a great economic and industrial
change within ten years.

The big dredge was shipped in

by steamer from Whltehorsc t" Dawson, Hy the lime all of the parts

says that with plenty of dredges

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL'
ANCIENT HISTORY
discovery in Cairo of Important Documents Dealing With the Time
of Christ.
Aichaeologiste  Regard  the  Find  as
Having Considerable Bearing
on Biblical Accounts
A discovery of prime Importance
to archaeologists and of general interest to students of Christianity,
has recently been made in Cairo. It
is a document evidently written In
the century of Christ's birth, and
contains the only contemporary reference to events described in the
New Testament. Non-believersi in
the past have made much of the
fact that in no history or other
writing of the day is to be found any
corroboration of the events described in the New Testament. The
fact that the books of the Testament were themselves written many
years after the crucifixion has also
been unfavorably commented on by
those who deny the divinity and
the miracles of Christ. There will
be a difference of opinion as to
whether the newly discovered manuscript is really a confirmation of
New Testament history; but there
can be little doubt that it supplies
strength to a weakness in the strictly historical demonstration of Christianity.
Professor Schnechter thinks the
two Messiahs are one person, whom
he seeks to Identify as Zadok, the
founder of the Zadoklte or Saddu-
cean sect; while Belial, In bis opinion, Is not an individual, but the
Hellenistic persecution before the
M'nccabean revolt. An equally high
authority, George Margoliouth, custodian of the Hebrew MSS. in the
British museum, is sure that the
first Messiah is John the Baptist, as
the remark about descent from Aaron and Israel would describe him
accurately enough. If the first Messiah, then, is John the Baptist, It
is hard to resist the conclusion that
"the Teacher of Righteousness" is
Christ himself. Mr. Margouliouth
says;
"A striking corroboration of this
fact may be furnished by page two
of the document where is written:
'In the explanation of his name are
also their names. Now the Boethu-
sians, a variety of the Sadducees,
derived their name from Boethos, a
priest, whose name in Greek means
"helper." The name was common at
the time. Now, the Hebrew name
represented by 'Jesus' means exactly the same as Boethos—helper."
He thinks the Apostle Paul is the
Belial of the document, for according to the narrow Judalzing point of
view his activities would seem most
pernicious. The document sneers at
Paul for being "sent" as in the Hebrew view his apostleshlp was self-
assumed. The common Hebrew root
for both "apostle" and "sent" is not
without its significance to the interpreter of this passage. One of the
most interesting things in connection
with the newly-discovered gospel is
that the chief law laid down by the
unknown author is the Golden Rule.
Every member of the sect was enjoined to "love his neighbor." If
the manuscript is to be accepted as
genuine, and the opinion of experts
as to its date admitted, it is plain
proof that about that time some
new religious ideas were being disseminated, and that one or more
Messiahs had but lately been stirring the Jewish people to their
depths. The generally discredited
refernces in Josephus to events In
the New Testament have been hitherto the only discoverable mention
in contemporary Jewish chronicle to
the facts of Christianity. The new
gospel may either strengthen a waning belief in these references or
take the place they occupied among
arbneologlsts before they fell • Into
disrepute.
Tbe discoverer of this important
document is Professor Solomon
Schnechter, formerly Semilic professor in Cambridge and at present of
the Jewish Theological Seminary of
America. It was when he was at
Cambridge that the MS. came Into
Professor Schnecliter's hands, but as
it was only one of 90,000 other archaeological treasures which had
been guarded for 1,000 years by the
Jewish congregation at Cairo, and
us the work of deciphering and
translating the documents had been
a tedious process, It is not surprising that only lately the real treasure
of Schnechter discusses the document In the book he has just published, but refrains from advancing
any dogmatic explanation of the references in it,
Tlie manuscript Is of eight pages,
written apparently between A. D.
50 and 100, and thus antedating the
earliest of the authentic gospels. It
represents  a  personal  address  of  a
religious leader to his followers, in
which he lays down the general principles that are to guide them, at the
same time warning them sharply
against certain false teachers. It
voices belief -In two great personages who had been sent to strengthen the Hebrew race, the first referred to as a Messiah "from the
family of Aaron and from Israel,"
and the second, also called a Messiah, "the Teacher of Righteousness" A third person, called "a man
of scoffing" and "Belial," Is denounced for his attempts to wean
the people away from the true
faith.
ENGLISH  SPELLING
Minister of Justice Is Not a Believer
in New Methods of Orthography
"We Canadians should adhere to
the English method of spelling,
rather than that adopted in the
United States. I do not desire to
take up the time of this House with
trifles, but this -matter, in my opinion, is no trifle. There is a growing
tendency in Canada to adopt the
United States method of abbreviating the spelling of words by dropping out letters. The good, old,
well-established English spelling
should be maintained."
So spoke Sir Alan Aylesworth In
submitting an unexpected amendment to a private bill in the House
of Commons.
Mr. Carvell was the promoter of a
measure to incorporate "the Saskatchewan & Hudson Bay Railway
Company," and submitted its second
reading. Thereupon the Minister of
Justice advanced his amendment to
change the name to "Hudson's Bay
Railway Company."
Sir Alan alluded to the fact that
the "good old English spelling" was
"Hudson's Bay," while the United
States had adopted and amended
the term in "Hudson River." He deplored the general tendency to follow American forms of spelling. "It
is," said he, "the English language
that we speak, and we look to England for our standards of orthography and geography. I believe that
we in the Canadian Parliament, in
all our official writings, do well to
maintain that standard, whatever
the newspapers or other people may
see fit to do."
The suggestion of the Minister of
Justice was unanimously adopted
and the bill in question amended accordingly.
STANDS BY POLICY
Premier McBride Will Insist Upon Conserving Resources of
Province.
He Will Make It Necessary to Manufacture Timber in British
Columbia
In reply to a query made by the
Columbian, of New Westminster,
Premier McBride assures British Columbians that here will be no change
in the stand of the government in
conservation of the resources of the
province. The reciprocity treaty, as
framed, demands free saw logs and
free pulp logs. That Is the American side. In the appended wire,
Premier McBride makes his position clear to both Americans and Canadians. Here is the Premier's assurance in answer to an inquiry
from The British Columbian:
"Victoria, Feb.  22.
"The British Columbian,
"New Westminster, B. C.
"This government does not intend
to change its policy requiring the
manufacture of timber in the province.
i   (Signed)      "R.   MCBRIDE."
Premier's   Views
Premier McBride in reply to a
request, cables the London Express:
"I Strongly object to the reciprocity agreement. There is no necessity for such, nor any general demand for it in Canada. Reciprocity
will suddenly dislocate Canada's
present trade and divert a great deal
of it to the advantage of the United
States. This will also have an effect
on our trade with Britain, which is
our best cjstomer and at present absorbs the greater part of our exports. It will not tend advantageously towards the early solution of
the problem of imperial federation.
Undoubtedly the United States was
actuateu by a desire to secure control oithe Canadian resources and at
the same time secure a larger share
of the Canadian market for her manufactures. On the other hand, Canada's better plan is to trade as freely
with the Motherland and the other
parts of the Empire, to mutual advantage, instead of tying her hands
with an outside country which may
one time decide to end the agreement with the result that Canada's

the China Fleet was first and the
Home Fleet (1st Division) second.
The percentage of hits to rounds
fired was 46.95, counting by the old
system, against  50.13  in   1909.
Yet a third return gives the result of the gunlayers' test in the destroyer flotillas and shows a percentage of 42.38 hits to rounds
fired.
AS   SEEN   IN   LONDON
IMPROVED SHOOTING
Shooting extraordinary, both for
rapidity of fire and accuracy of aim,
is accorded to the credit of the royal
navy in the official returns for "Re--
isult of Test in Gunlayers, 1910," issued recently. The system of reckoning hits has been slightly changed
since 1909; (richochets, or shots
which hit the target after striking
the water, being now only counted
as half a hit, whereas in 1909 they
were reckoned as a full hit.
The number of ships firing was
117, and the percentage of hits from
heavy guns to rounds fired was as
follows:
Reckoning
Old       New
    42.7      . . . .
1908    	
    53.5      	
Had the system of scoring used up
to 1907 been retained the percentage
of hits would have been close on
100, as against 36 in 1901. That
gives an idea of the prodigious
progress achieved by the gunners of
the navy.
The finest individual shooting
with the big guns—and It is nothing
short of. marvellous—was made by
Acting Bombardier H. Oliver of the
Royal Marine Artillery. Firing with
a 12-inch gun of the Temeralre he
scored 3.3 hits per minute. The 12-
inch gun, weighing about 60 tons
and taking a projectile of 850
pounds was then loaded and discharged with unerring aim more
than three times a minute, a triumph of mechanism, of discipline in
the gun crew, and of skill in the
man behind the gun.
In order of merit the first four
squadrons stand thus, in points per
gun or turret:
1. China 56.6
2. Home  Fleet,  2nd  Div 47.5
3. Cape  of Good  Hope 46.9
4. Home Fleet, 3rd Div 46.2
s . . 6At emfwy cmfw cmfwy cmfw f
The first three ships in order of
merit are:
Natal (Home Fleet, 2nd Division),
56 rounds, 50 hits.
Temeraire (Home Fleet, 1st Division),  37   rounds,  32  hiti.
Hermes (Cape of Good Hope), 65
rounds, 47 hits.
The returbn states that "their
lordships note with satisfaction that
the standard of shooting which was
attained in 1909 has been maintained."
A similar return giving the result

Vanity Fair Gives  Its  Impression of
the Hon. Price Ellison
The London illustrated weekly,
Canity Fair, in its issue of January
25, publishes a full page photograph
of the Hon. Price Ellison, and under
its regular department headed "Men
of the Day," It thus describes the
member for the Okanagan:
"An ideal personification of the
go-ahead vigor of British Columbia,
Canada's vast and variedly resourceful province on the Pacific, is the
Honorable Price Ellison, the energetic statesman who has been open
ing the eyes of many in the Mother
Land to the abounding potentialities
of the great expanse of the Dominion with which his distinguished life-
work has been so intimately connected.
"Holding as he does the important offices of minister of finance and
agriculture for British Columbia, the
Hon. Price Ellison simply bubbles
over with warm enthusiasm for the
colony he has so ably represented.
Himself, in his early days, a fearless
cowboy and an enterprising rancher,
his familiarity with every part of
British Columbia is, as was Mr. Welter's knowledge of London, 'extensive and peculiar.'
"To that eminently desirable haven of the young man who would
make his way in the world—for
British Columbia's call is loud and
alluring indeed today—the Hon.
Price Ellison is the best imaginable
guide, and he is ever ready to hold
ou to the right sort of emigrant the
'glad hand,' and to afford helpful
practical counsel to all.
"Bluff, genial and hearty, he is
also a most eloquent speaker, and
the difficulty is to get him to stop
when descanting upon the advantages offered by the natural wealth
of British Columbia to persons with
pluck and a little capital. To the
fruit grower and the agriculturist he
will produly point out the exhaust-
less possibilties of the famous 'Dry
Belt,' wliile as to the highly prom-
isenml mineral and other developments of the colony he is a perfect
cyclopaedia of absolutely reliable
wisdom. British Columbia is indeed
fortunate in its fervent missioner."

Sir Joseph Ward, Prime Minister
of New Zealand, said that the white
population of New Zealand, which
passed the million mark in December
last, had increased by 232,000, or
three per cent per annum, in the last
ten years, a rate unequalled In any
other Australian state during the
same period. Imports and exports
had increased from £23,800,000 to
£39,200,000; land valuation had
risen 100.32 per cent, from £138,-
600,000   to  £277,600,000.

SPORTS
.MUNICIPAL   BOXING
A placard bearing an unusual prescription for health has during the
last few weeks become a principal
topic of conversation in Shoreditch.
Issued by the authority of the Shore-
ditdh Borough council, the bill announces that "for twopense you can
keep fit and well during the winter
by exercising at the fully equipped
municipal gymnasium Pitsfeld street
baths." A newspaperman recently
paid twopence at the doors of the
Pitsfield street baths for the privilege of obtaining a quick lesson in
pugilism and a cheap road to good
health.    He writes:
"The gymnasium was a hive of
activity. Immediately fronting the
doors were two twelve by twelve feet
rings, with two very earnest battles
in progress.
"So eager was everyone to have at
least a single round that it was 'half
an hour before my turn came to enter the ring. The instructor himself
had been kind enough to divest himself of his coat and waistcoat in order to oblige me with my full twopenny worth. I received it. 'The
art of boxing,' he said, as we dodged
about the ring, 'is mainly a matter
of temper.' So peculiar was the
look in the man's eye and so difficult did I find it to keep my breath
fihat I made no reply. The instructor's left fist shot out very suddenly
and in my right ear I felt a queer
stinging sensation.
"The instructor's peculiar look
broadened into a smile. 'That's the
great idea,' he murmured—'temper.'
This time it was his right glove that
met my face and again he whispered
the word 'temper.' Some time later,
perhaps it was only half a minute,
though it seemed more like an hour,
I was led gently back to the little
chair in the corner whence I had
come. The amiable instructor followed me, and with all the best nature n the world told me exactly
what had happened and how I
might have avoided those quer sensations in both ears."
