MAYOR'S PROPOSALS
Pressing Hatters He Calls to the Attention of the Various Committees
of Council
His  Worship (Jives Aldermen  Somi
Suggestions  for  Early
Consideiutlon
Inimeditely after the various com-
miliees had been named last evening by Mayor Manson, proceeded
lo outline some of the more pressing matters thai he (ell should receive early attention al the bunds of
the different committees and wihloh
be suggested they could lake up at
their earliest   convenience,
The suggestions offered were contained in the following memorandum, which was read and copies
given  to  each  alderman —
Prince   Rupert,   II.   C,
January  16th, 1911.
To  the  Municipal  Council    of    the
City of  Prince  Rupert,  13.  C.
GENTLEMEN—
Porniil me, ai the beginning of
the year's work, to lay before you
a few suggestions with respect to
matters which require to be taken
up by tbe various committees with
as little delay ns possible.
Finance Committee
Tbe finance committee is requested to investigate the expenditures
now being made under the several
local improvement bylaws, and see
that the amounts do not exceed the
authority given by the said bylaws.
A report should be made to the
council on this subject.
Also, this committee should report to Ihe council as to tbe indebtedness of the city to the banks, and
how the city stands with regard to
the sale of debentures; wthich debentures have been sold, and which
have been pledged to the banks.
It will be necessary for the
chairman of the finance committee
to submit to the council immeditely
the annual loan bylaw, In anticipation of the current year's revenue, in
order that the council may be able
to bororw money from the bank to
suoh extent as may be required from
time to time for current expenditure
prior 'to the time when the taxes
are due and payable to the city.
A resolution should also be passed
by the council instructing the assessor to make the assessment and
fix the time when the work
shall be completed and the roll returned to the city clerk.
The finance committee should require the other committees to submit, as early as possible, their estimates from the school trustees and
the police commissioners, In order
that complete estimates of receipts
and expenditures may be laid before tbe council.
It is important that tbe health
committee make provision a3 early
as possible for the disposal of garbage. This will probaly have to be
done by means of the use of a scow,
which, when loaded, will have to be
removed r.nd dumped outside the
harbor. I wou'd urge that cteps be
taken in this connection so that provision may he made before the
spring Is too far advanced, and we
are exposed to tho dangers that
would follow when warmer weather
is at band.
Street,   Works   null   Property   Committee
Owing lo the large amount of
work now In progress In tbe grading
of tho slrsets Ir. Section 1, it will not
likely be found desirable to proceed with any other work to amy
great extent for a time, but to push
to completion what Is r.ow under
way. I would, therefore, request
that this committee look carefully
into all work new going ou and see
to it that the same is carried out in
accordance with the specifications,
con-tracts and arrangements made by
last year's council.
Consideration will have to be given by this committee to the policy
to be pursued in connection with retaining walls for property below the
street  grad63.
It is likely that as soon as the
present, grading of streets in section
I is completed, that a demand will
be made for crushed rock to be
placed on some of the streets instead of putting the planks hack
again as has been arranged, in which
case the planking could be used in
oher parts of the city that may require attention. With this In view-
it may be found wise to arrange for
the    purchase of a  rock     crusher,
\vhioh may take considerable time to
secure and oomsequemtly ought to be
planned  for ahead.
This committee should also at an
early dale given.consideration to the
organization of a public works de-
lartment, with tools and equipment
for carrying on all public works under the ioni;nl of the council,
whether tor streets, waterworks,
jewers or other undertakings.
I would als'i nsli this committee to
give consideration lo the details of
tihe proposed sower system, and to
report to the council, In order thai
Hie engineer's department may be
properly Instructed in connection
wiib the prepiiitiiin of plans nml
specifications for the work.
Fire and Water Committee
I would recommend that the fire
and water committee lake up the
question of the plans of the proposed
water system from Woodwork!] Lake
which has already been dealt with
to some extent by the engineer's department.fl A preliminary report
should be made to the council as to
how soon it may be possible to have
sui'lii-ii-nt data In shape to enable
the council to submit a bylaw to the
people authorizing the borrowing of
money to carry out the work.
This committee should also examine nlio existing conditions in connection with the present fire department, and see if any improvements can be made to more fully
safeguard   the  citizens  against  fire.
[light nml Telephone Committee
I would ask the light and telephone committee lo report to the
council the condition of the electric
light plant, giving the expenditure to
date and probable amount yet required to complete the same, and
advise the council the condition of
tlhe electric light plant, giving the
expenditure lo date and probable
amount yet required to complete the
same, and advise the council how
soon it may be possible to supply
light. Also, the question of the receipts and expenditures of the telephone system should be examined
Into, with a view to seeing if any
modification of rates can be effected.
I would urge upon all committees

COMMITTEES NAMED
Members of Council Divided Into Three
Groups for Detail
Work.
Convenient .Method Adopted for the
Transaction of the Business
by New .Mayor
At the meeting of the city council
last evening Mayor Manson imadfe
the selection of tbe various committees that will be charged with the
work this year. The bylaw provides
for five standing committees which
are  named   In   it. His   Worship
took occasion to so group the work
that while there are the five standing committees there are really three
bodies of men who will have to deal
with the business. The personnel of
the finance and assessment committee is exactly the same as that of
the health, relief, license and police
committee, Then, again, tho members of the fire and water committee
nre the same as are to serve on the
light and telephone committee The
streets, works and property committee is charged with that work alone
and all will agree il has enough to
look after.
The committees struck by the
mayor at last evening's meeting
were as follows—
Finance nd assessment— Aid.
Kirkpatrick, Aid. Newton and
Mayor  Manson.
Health, relief, license and police—
Aid. Kirkpatrick, Aid. Newton, and
Mayor Alanson.
Streets, works and property—Aid.
Hilditch, Aid. Pattullo and Aid.
Morrissey.
Fire and water—Aid. Smith, Aid.

New Police Commission Meet and Make Position Plain
—Chief McCarvell Jays He Can Put
Stop to Gambling.
The new police commissioners mel
this imoralng in the olty hull and
Miule their position plain with re-
specmil to ih-- enforcement of the
law. Chief McCarvell was Instructed to, proceed at once to have the
laws lived up to strictly. The chief
acquiesced in the request and stated
lie wns ready lo do it and could
have Ihe laws observed. II might
take, a little time lo free Ihe city of
undesirables but lie could do it.
His Worship explained that the
meeting was called lo organize the
new police board. By virtue of his
office he was chairman and the city
clerk by virtue of bis office was sen-
rotary to tin- board. He thought it
would be wiise for the board to bold
regular open meetings. He suggested that about the first of Ihe
month these meetings should be
held.
He thought they should go on record as being behind the chief of police in the Matter of the enforcement
of the law. It appeared from what
had come to light that there were
gamblers and tin horns in the city.
The commissioners wanted to impress upon lite chief that they exported the city freed of this element. They were of no benefit to
the city. The board wnnted to see
these men cleaned out of town. They
were going to look to the chief to
do  il.
The chief said that he could
guarantee to have those people who
were living in violation of the law
driven out in a reasonable length of
time.
His Worship said it was reported
itlhere were blind pig keepers and
crib keepers in the city. These
should be given to understand they
could  not stay in the titty.
With respect to the licensed places
he wanted the cheif to see that the
regulations under which they operated were lived up to.
The  responsibility  cf acquainting
tUiemsleves with tho law was up to
iii- li ■ i;:-o holders and they should
ascertain  the regulations,
The i liii-f suiil in- iiad Instructed
i' i-ry license holder as to tlie regulations.
Mis. Worship asked the chief as
:o whether the bars were ohsan Ing
the law with respect to not obstructing the»yiew from the street.
The chief said he found the Premier par complied with the law iind
the Inn had been instructed to have
Its windows made to conform to the
Jaw.
His Worship said that, witli reaped lo the enforcemenl of law the
board wanted to bo acquainted with
the fact as lo whether the members
of liis force were suitable. If they
were not, the board would, on the
recommendation of the ohief make
such changes as were necessary to
make it efficient.
Commissioner Stephens asked
what he would consider a reasonable
time to carry out the work suggested.
Tiie chief said it was difficult to
set an exact time. To do tbe work
lie would require to have funds
placed at his disposal and employ
the men he thought best for doing
the work. With respect to gambling
after the publicity given to it those
engaged in it. would be very careful. He would net like to be bound
down to any  definite period.
Commissioner Kirkpatrick asked
if the monetary arrangements of last
year would be satisfactory to the
chief in providing for special plain
clothes men ot do the work. After
some discussion the chief offered
some suggestions and a satisfactory
arrangement wilLJie made.
His Worship said the wish of the
commissioners was to give the chief
a free hand in enforcing the law.
The commissioners then adjourn-
COMMISSIONERS
ARE APPOINTED
Last evening Mayor Manson was
advised from Victoria that at a meeting of the provincial executive the
appointments of police and license
commissioners for this city bad been
dealt with and the selections made
for the year.
The police commissioners appointed are Aid. J. A. Kirkptrick and
M. M. Stephens. For license commissioner, Aid. V. W. Smith and
J. E. Merryfield nave been selected.
Under the act, the mayor of the
city sits as the chairman of each of
these boards, making tlie I bird member  of   the   coin mission.
Tho choice of the members of the
different commissioners will, it. is
safe to say give eminent satisfaction.
The license commissioners sat last
year and carried out their duties
well. In the new police commissioners the city have a board that
will stand for enforcement of the
law without being extremists in
any line.
The new boards will enter upon
their duties at once.
Under the new arrangement,
Mayor Manson will lake the place of
ex-Mayor Stork on the license board
so that that body will undergo but
the one change. The police board
Is entirely new.

Miss Coral Barker rendered a number of violin selections which were
very much appreciated by tbe audience. Mr. J. E. Davey delighted
tbe audience with several vocal solos; a cornet solo by Mr. Miller, and
a recitation by Miss Ethel Grey

some members of the  Brotherhood.
During the past month the Brotherhood has been rapidly progressing

L ,W. Patmore, representing the

to go on witli his argument.
Alex Manson, representing the
prosecution, on behalf of Mr. Mobley, did not see why the case should

Mr. Ptamoro si.ti-d thai tho election was only over two days and

when : in- revenues of tlie city begin
to come in. Ai the present time
there re some lolls owing which cannot, be mel until this bylaw is passed
and a credit established for tbe municipality witii tin- bank. The bylaw '.vliii li was ntroduced lasl evening by the chairman of the finanoa
committee, Aid. Kirkpatrick, provides for tin- borrowing of the sum
of $125,000 upon the crdoil of the
city. This, s was explained, Is not,
in any sense representative of what
may ho borrowed. It was placed al
ihis figure in order the.! the council
might not require in any later period
of tlie year to pass a supplementary
byla.w to cover other needs that
mi gill arise. The money will bo
borrowed as required by the council
and Inerest paid on tlie amount secured   and   on   that   alone.
Tiie bylaw was put through all

When ihe bylaw came up lai-.l

His Worship pointed out that the
in no wise affected the council as
to its borrowing. There was no necessity to borrow that sum from tbe
bank and it could have no Injurious
effect. The municipal clauses act
authorized tlie course taken. The
sum was the same as had been pur
in the bylaw last year. According to
last year's assessment and the rate
fixed last year, the limit of the bylaw  would  be  $18:1,000.
Aid. Pattullo contended that the
assessment was fictitious in part in
view of the G. T. P dispute -and
the sum likely to be paid by 'h'.u
corporation.
lie roalizdi'w What His Worship
said. Ilo fell that it would be bettor however lo get hte estimates advanced so as lo ascertain just what
was required for expenditure. He
thought, if would b every extraordinary lo pass tho bylaw now.
The bylaw passed its second reading, with Aid. Pattullo voting nay.
The council thou wont into committee of the whole With Aid. Smith

was acceptable to tho bank, Tin
bank would only advance what il

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
HENRI
IT LEADER
A Review of the cause he represents as outlined by himself to Old Country journalist.
Wiltam Maxwell, the special correspondent of the London Daily
Mail, who recently visited Camilla,
for the purpose of finding out at first
hand the attitude of the people on
some large questions affecting the
Imperial status gives the result of
an interview with Mr. Bourassa as
follows—
"Go and see Mr. Bourassa," said
my  friends  in   Montreal.
Mr. Bourassa is a French-Canadian, the leader of the Nationalist
parly and a niosi interesting figure in
Canadian politics. 1 was anxious to
I a Ik with a man whom many people
look upon as iho future Parnell of
Quebec, Hut Mr. Bourassa is a very
busy man, and though a journalist,
or perhaps because be is a Journalsit,
is nol. given to Interviews. However,
my old friend, Mr. Hector (larnoau,
who is following in the steps of his
famous grandfather and is aboul, to
appear as the historian of Canada,
succeeded in capturing his compatriot
for me,
Mr. Bourassa was at his desk in
the office of Le Devoir, for he has
transferred to Canada the French
tradition of combining journalism
with an active part in politics. In
speech and appearance the Nationalist leader might easily be mistaken
for an Englishman. When he takes
his pipe out of his pocket and leans
back in his chair the illusion is complete, but the illusion vanishes with
a glimpse of his profile. Full-face
Mr. Bourassa is British; side-face he
is decidedly French.
I wonder if this double physiognomy has anything to do with Mr.
Bourassa's politics. His enemies say
that he Is anti-British, yet Mr. Bourassa says—"You must not think
that we have been waging an anti-
British campaign. Far from it, 1
tell you, and I tell the people of the
provinces where the English predominate, we are just as loyal to the Old
Land, as they are.' His friends declare Hint he is anti-Imperialist, and
Mr. Bourassa would be the last to
deny it. Mis apologists, who do not
scruple to use Mr. Bourassa as a
stick willi which lo boat. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, profess that he ts neither anti-British nor anti-Imperialist,
but only anti-Laurier.
Let us listen to him and judge for
ourselves. Mr. Bourassa needs no
prompting. He 1s a trained journalist and politician, witli a natural gift
of eloquence, a charming manner
and a reputation for sincerity and
honest conviction which his words
do not belie.
"I am opposed to the naval policy
of the government," says Mr. Bourassa, "because it drags Canada into
the abyss of militarism. What,
ground is there for supposing that if
Great Britain was at war Canada
would be attacked or invaded? There
are only two countries that could
ever be suspected of hostile designs
against Canada. Japan is one and
she is the ally of Great Britain. Tbe
United States Is the other. We
French-Canadians have resisted two
military invasions from the United
States and have shed our blood freely
to preserve the territory of Canana
and the integrity of the Empire. Are
we asked to spend money in strength,
ening our frontier against the United
States? Great Britain, without consulting us, has permitted the United
States to violate the treaty that forbade the movement of warships on
the Great Lakes. Does anyone imagine for a moment that Great Britain
would raise a finger if the United
States were to spend millions on
arming her northern frontier or on
adding to the number of American
war vessels in the international waters that separate the United States
from Canada? Agains tonemies outside our continent the Monroe doctrine Is our best defense. Therefore, we do not believe in the Gorman peril. Formerly it was the menace of Russia; now Hie menace of
Germany is paraded as an excuse
for this naval law.
"Admit for tho moment—and it Is
possibly true—that Germany is a
real menace to Hie power of Great
Britain—to her commerce and her
maritime supremacy, Are we Canadians responsible for this? Have we
had any part in directing the policy
that has made Germany what she is
today?
"In the hint century Great Britain
was engaged in no fewer than 21!
wars and military expeditions. Yet,
save in 1812, when the United Slates
Invaded Canada and were beaten,
was Canadian territory menaced for
one moment?
"It. is said that we ought, not to
accept, the protection and the services
of Great Britain without contributing
to their charge. If Canada separated
from Great Britain tomorrow, the
British could not afford to have one
soldier the less or' to weaken their
navy by withdrawing a single ship.
How, then, can It be said that Great
Britain pays for our defence?
"Canada has no maritime interests that stand in need of defence.
They would be protected by interna
tional law. Our commerce with the
United States is three and a half
times greater than wth the various
parts of the British Empire. If British capital is invested in our railways and our municipal enterprises,
our industries are supported by tlie
capital of the United States.
"Havi'ng regard to these facts and
conditions, why should we take upon
our shoulders new burdens and responsibilities which neither our constitution, nor our history, nor our
traditions impose upon us?"
"I have just come from the west,"
1 ventured to interrupt, "and after a
lapse of ten years have been tremendously impressed by the extraordinary development of the British provinces. Are you sure that these provinces share your views? Unless
French-Canadians keep peace with
the west, will not the British provinces become impatient? in a few
years you will cease to hold the balance in population and will have become the minority."
"In fifteen years—-before that
time comes," replied Mr. Bourassa,
"the eastern provinces—Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick—will have become French in
language and Roman Catholic in
faith."
Mr. Bourassa is of the temperament against which arithmetic beats
in vain.
Here then is the root and flower
of   ihis   overmastering   ambition—a
French enclave with the Monroe doctrine inscribed on its borders and a
complacent and docile confederation
bowing at his door and pleading to
be admitted to the freedom of the
Atlantic coast. Surely, it is Papd-
neau, his rebel grandfather, who
speaks.
"And what os the privileges of tlie
Roman Catholic church?" I asked
with some hesitation, for this is a
question that Canadians always avoid
or speak about in baled breath; "now
t inn Spain has become restive, Quebec is the last stronghold of Roman
Catholic privileges. Here they have
the sanctum of the law lo a degree
never perm!ted in the days when
Prance ruled Quebec." Tlie Roman
Catholic church in Canada has deserted Sir Wilfrid Laurier and tho
Liberals and has thrown its enor
mous influence on the side of the
Nationalist leader, Mr. Bourassa, For
how long and for what purpose no
one in Canada pretends to know.
And .Mr. Bourassa is not disposed to
enlighten mo. He is content to say
that the Roman Catholic church in
Quebec has no special privileges—
no privileges that are not given to
other religious bodies.
Frankly, Mr. Bourassa is no Imperialist. He looks upon a federal
empire as an idle and dangerous
dream from which we shall presently
awaken. "Geographically, it is impossible; politically, it. is undesirable.' This is his spoken and written conviction. He denounces Earl
Grey for daring to preach the gospel
of Imperialism, and holds that It is
"contrary to the real unity of the
Empire to seek to impose upon Canada, which has no voice in the government of the Empire, nay share in
its external responsibilities, and its
mi'itary defences outside the Canadian territor, the only portion of Iho
Empire upon which the Canadian
people may exercise any political or
constitutional action." To the care-
loss and the uninitiated this may
sound good imperial doctrine. But
Mr. Bourassa and his friends drafted
his resolutoin with their tongue in
their cheeks. They want no voice
in the Empire. They look forward
to the day when the tie will be broken.
Hear Mr. Bourassa's confession.
"If you leave Canada, like the rest
of the Empire, to develop Its own national rourceses of -d cmf cmf cmf
national and ethnic traditions, the
separation will be a slow process
and it will be friendly. We shall
continue to be the best allies of Great
Britain, and Great Britain, like the
other nations of Europe, will find
it of advantage to preserve in North
America the independence of a
country that will serve as a counterpoise to the United States invasion."
Let us hear no more about Mr.
Bourassa's sentiment toward the
"Old Country," which has preserved
for him his language, his faith and
bis freedom. He who Is not for us
is against us. Mr. Bourassa may be
only a dreamer, as some In Canada
say, but such dreams are dangerous
stuff when they are told to the habitants of Quebec and are sanctified
with tbe blessing of their Mother
Church.
FIGHT  FOR  MILLIONS
Interesting  Case  in   Which   Alberta
Government Is Concerned,
Has Commenced
The fight for the $7,400,000 of
Alberta and Great Waterways moneys deposited In the Royal, Union and
Dominion banks has begun with nil
appearance to the action brought by
the Alberta government against the
above-named banks to compel payment to the province of those moneys was entered by the Royal and
Dominion banks. The Union bank
apparently intend to pay a million
dollars of these moneys to the court,
withdraw from the action and allow
the claimants to fight It out for
themselves, for they applied for and
were granted a chamber summons
calling upon the parties interested to
appear before Justice Beck in chambers Jan. 27 and put forward their
claims.
The Union bank manager, Mr.
John J. Anderson, also submitted an
affidavit to the effect that the applicants do not collude with the Al-
iberta and Great Waterways oom-
pany, the Canadian West Construction company or the Standard Trust
company, who are the trustees of
the bondholders of the railway.
This interpleader will give the
Alberta and Great Waterways company an opportunity to make a fight
of whloh they will In all probability
avail  themselves.
According to Montreal dispatches
Mr. J. Plerpont Morgan my be drawn
Into the dispute.

IMPERIAL REOIPBOOITO
British Pnpjcr Deals with ihe Subject Which is Now Before
Statesmen
Referring to the Newfoundland
fisheries question, the London Morning Post says If there Is now to be
a settlement it will not come out of
the recent award, but out of the different themper which has marked
the attitude of both the people of
Newfoundland and of the United
States. Newfoundlanders have
learned by bitter experience that, unsupported by Canada, they cannot
coerce the United States, if only be-
oause the "Lone hand" policy cannot
attract the sympathy of any Imperial government. A further weakness of Sir Robert Bond's campaign
was Its avowed objective treaty,
draftedm some years ago, but destroyed then by the Amerloan senate,
giving the trade of the United States
preference against the Empire.
His successor, Sir Edward Morris,
has talked instead about strengthening the colony's trade relations with
the mother country. That change
of attitude has doubtless been noted
by the American government, which
in any case Is anxious on domestic
grounds to make a show of lowering
tbe tariff. About a fortnight ago It
wns reported that the United States
had relaxed Its customs regulations
for the benefit of Newfoundland fish,
which was regarded as an overture.
Of course Ihe United Slates would
be very glad if It could bring Canada and Newfound land together Into
some    fiscal    arrangement    which
wou'd forestall the  British policy of
Imperial reciprocity, but to Englishmen and to the Empire generally a
brighter aspect of tbe situation Is
the possibility that. Newfoundland
may ally herself with Canada and
make the British preference a cornerstone  of  her  tariff system.

AN   EARLY  START
■   council   has   n    li
irli     tor the
work.   The various committees have
nizi 'I and have already entered ' ol     pri | '
year.    Win n t be
i- is 1 ioIci 'I  Into It   will
bo seen thai the i welve months which
hi, . n  entered ii] on   will   make
period in the
alstoTj ■ ' ■ city. The last coun-
ill had :i difficult task; tlie present
louncil will have no less difficult
work to do.
Tho choice which Mayor Manson
made as members of the various
standing committees and the grouping of these committees virtually into
three distinct sections should result
in simplifying the work of the cotin-
ril.
Aid. Kirkpatrick the leading councillor In Wed 2, as far as the number of votes Is concerned, should be
eminently satisfactory to the citi-
i as us chairman of the finance com-
niinee. He is a business man of
standing and is an eminently safe
man. His Worship lias alloted himself to this committee also, which
materially strengthens it. Aid. Newton also is a member.
fit selecting Aid, Smith as the
chairman of the water, telephone and
-ioctric light committee, recognition
is given fo the popular candidate in
rVard l. With the work Aid. Smith
has been familiar in the last coun-
il. Aid. Clayton lias quite pro-
nced i iews on these subjects and
rltl Aid. Kerr, another eminently
practical man, completes the committee, which should be callable of
doing very effective work.
Tbe streets committee one of tbe
mo. i Important of tin committees,
sonn s under the ■ hairmanship of
Aid. Hllditch, which should be very
satisfactory to the bulk of his electors. Aid. Ilildiich is exceedingly
fair and has sat on that committee
during the life of the last council and
taken a very aotive part in its proceedings. In Aid. Pattullo there will
be brought to bear the experience of
that alderman with respect to Ihe
question of streets. Aid. Pattullo
took a very deep interest in the
street work and the allotting of him
to that branch of work is a fitting
recognition of his abilliy along that
line. Aid. Morrissey is a very practical man and there should be no
tad; of aggressive work by this committee.
A very good precedent was set by
Mayor Manson in Ihe outlining of
some of Hie pressing matters that
must bo considered. While each
alderman has his part in the affairs, the mayor of tho city as the
executive head, must lie looked to m
take a much more important part
than the indivdual alderman. He,
of necessity, can give rather more
thought to the various matters and
must be held responsible for the acts
of Ihe council.
The outline of work which His
Worship gave last evening reveals a
heavy task that lies before the council this year.

FORGETTING TRADITIONS
There was a time when the Liberal
party was supposed to stand for the
mass of the people against any arrogance of the more favored classes in
the community. Long since the tra.
ditions of the party in this respect
have been forgotten and the Liberal
party of today lias forgotten the
principles for which the old-time
leaders fought.
The representative organ of the
Liberal party in Prince Rupert has
shown unniistakeably that it is not
prepared to consider the voice of the
great mass of the people as mandatory in matters of government. Its
reference to the results of the late
election indicates that it. believes not.
in tlie government of the people, by
the people, but that it stands for ihe
government of the majority by the
minority.
Suoh a doctine must be most repulsive lo tho Liberals of Ihe old
sdhool of Drown, Mackenzie and their
contemporaries with the democratic
principles for which they fought so
si i enuously.
The ruling faction of last year's
council fell into the same grievous
error of thinking the public was not
to be entrusted with the conduct of
ill mis and refused to take the citizens into counsel in (he mutter of
expenditures. That system had its
effect in the utter rout practically of
that section of the council in the
election just closed. Under the democratic form of government we have
the people cannot with impunity be
relegated  to condemnation.

SINKING NEW SHAFT
NANAIMO—The Western Fuel
company is to sink a new shaft and
open up a new field of coal. Preparations are already under way for
sinking the shaft, which will be about
1,000 feet in depth, and will be located near the north mouth of the
Nanaimo river in the vicinity of what
is commonly known as the "Meadows." It is intended that January
IT will see -the first sod turned and
from that time on the work will be
rushed as expeditiously as possible
to a successful completion. The
sinking of this new shaft and its attendant results in the opening a new
field of coal and milking more easy
of access the field already exploited
by way of No. 1 shaft, will mean
much to the city. The shaft will be
connected with the local wharves by
railroad, all the coal output being
shipped over the present tracks and
loaded aboard steamers with the
present facilities, and docks owned
by the company.

feet deep is an enormous figure, and
it augurs well for the prospects ol
the coal trade and the almost unlimited field of coal to draw from
that the Western Fuel company are
going to this large expense in order
to supply the ever-increasing demand
for the product of the local mines.

STEEL WORKS
One of the curiosities of the Brit-
I ish election just ended is the political
poster. In England it seems necessary to picture argument with such
realism that no one can be mistaken.
It shows, too, that the ordinary elector cannot grasp oral argument. One
of the leaders may give a pronouncement in detal on free trade or tariff
reform, but it is thought necessary
to visualize his argument.
The 'horrors" of tariff reform or
taxes on food are pictured in a lurid
poster which represents Englishmen
consuming rats, mice dog and horse
flesh; the condition brought about by
free trade is forced home by an artistic production showing a family in
the pangs of hunger. The hereditary
privilege of the peers is represented
by u pair of scales in which one lord
outbalances people numbering many
thousands,
Although vry unfair on both sides i
these posters add Interest to the campaign, and it is gooil for poster artists; particularly good tor one, John

evenings In Canada had to be filled

Skill in an Interesting hobby resulted in his submitting sketches to Canadian journals and finally to London. Success in this difficult and
competitive field led to abandonment of farming and a good connection In the metropolis.

future there will arise on this site
a huge steel plant with the usual concomitants of blast furnaces and a
town for the workers and their families. Close on $2,000,000 is to be

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
MINERAL PRODUCTION
FOR CALENDAR YEAR
Provincial Mineralogist Gives His Estimate of the Ore
Produced in Province During Last
Twelve Months.
The preliminary report of the provincial mineralogist, Mr. W. Fleel
Robertson, on the province's production of minerals in the past year, has
been issued. Mr. Robertson explains
that the figures given are estimates,
as the final official returns had not
bi en i ecoiveil. Iii his summary lie
says—
'" be accompanying fable shows an
estimated mineral production in the
province during 1910 of a total value
of $26,183,605. If the revised returns shall prove this estimate to be
approximately • irrert, as is believed
they will do, the total for the year
will be the highest yet recorded in
the history of mining in British Columbia, for it will compare favorably with that for 1901, which, at
$25,822,668, has been tbe largest
yearly total on .ecord.
"It is of interest to note that this
province continues to maintain its
average production of the mineral
produotion of that of the whole of
the Dominion for the 25 years 1S86-
1910, included in the published official reports, at $1,120,000,000
(which allows about $95,000,000 for
1910), it would appear that British
Columbia may fairly claim to nave
produced between 27 and 28 per
cent of this large sum. The aggregate value of the mineral production
of this province for all years to 1910,
inclusive, is nearly $374,000,000.
Proportionate Production
Deducting the total value of the
minerals—chiefly for coal and placer
gold—produced prior to lSSfi, which
was nearly $64,000,000, British Columbia's approximate aggregate for
the 26 years is left at $310,000,000,
Wthich is between 27 nil 2S per cent
of the whole of Canada. It is a striking fact, as indicateing the substantial increase in the value of the mineral production of the province In
recent years as compared with that
pjrior to 1906, that fully 40 per cent
of this large value is the production
of the last five years, 1906-1910,
while more than half—53.7 per cent
—is that of seven years, 1904-1910."
The production of different metals
Is given as follows, with comparison
of previous year—
Placer gold, $482,000, increase $5,-
000; lode gold, $6,198,505, increase,
$274,41e; silver, $1,282,600, increase $42,320; lead, $1,480,000, decrease, $229,260; copper, $$4,972,-
500, decrease, $946,022; zinc, $184,-
000, dercease, $216,000. The total
metal produotion last year was therefore $13,599,505, as compared with
$14,66S,141 in 1909.
The coal output was 2,SOO,000
long tons, valued at $9,800,000, an
increase of $2,77,334 over (lie previous year. Coke amounted to 214,-
000 long tons, valued at $1,284,000,
a decrease of $268,218 from 1909.
The value of building materials was
$1,500,000, showing an increase of
$300,000. ihe grand total of metals
and non-metals for 1910 is $26,183,-
505, as compared with $24,443,025
in the previous year. The coal product was much the largest in the his-
taory of the province.
Gold Output
Atlin is credited with an increase
of $60,000 in placer gold, while Cariboo decreased $45,000, owing largely
to water scarcity.
The quantity of lode gold produced was the largest on record except 1903, and last year may yet
exceed that when returns are complete. Rossbind mines contributed
nearly 120,000 OZ, of the total (estimated at 251,000 oz.) and rather
more than twoitohlrds of Hint quantity came from Hie Centre star
group. The proportion from iho Le
Roi was about 9,500 oz., while nearly
all the remainder came    from    tho
mines of Lo ltoi No. 2, Lid., the
toial from the Binaller mines Inning
been only aboul 1,000 oz. Coast
mines furnished 6,900 ounces, most-
ly from Texada Island.
Lead   and   Silver
There were noticeable decreases in
lead and silver, the reasons for which
are thus summarized in the report,—
"The apparent diminution of the
known ore-bodies in the St. Eugene
mine; the closing of the Blue Bell
mine, pending the reorganization of
the French compan yowning it, and
the provision of additional capital for
new power maohlner required at the
mine, the extensive damages done
last Bummer by forest fires in the
Siocan, which destroyed railway
bridges and trestles along several
miles of the Kaslo & Siocan railway,
and concentrating and power plants
nt mines; and, in much smaller degree, the cessation of production for
iue time at several mines, among
them the North Star in East Koote-
iiuy, the Cork on south fork or Kaslo
crook, and the Reoo, in ihe Siocan.
Il may be mentioned in passing thai
the outlook is favorable lor a larger
production in I tl 11 of this metal at
several Siocan mines, notably the
Rambler-Cariboo, Siocan Star, Ruth-
Hope group, Standard, Van Roi, tind
llewitt-Lorna Doone  group.
"The low price of lead in 1910 had
tho effect of making tlie bounty on
lead, by which the Dominion aids
the lead-mining Industry, payable
throughout tbe year.
"The pjroduotion of copper has
been estimated art 39,000,000 pounds,
of wthich 32,000,000 pounds is credited to the Boundary district mines;
about 3,600,000 pounds to Rossland
miines; 25,000 pounds to three mines
situated in the vicinity of Nelson;
and the remainder to coast mines,
chiefly Britannia, on Howe sound,
and the Marble bay and Cornell
mines on Tex da island. a
"There do not appear to have been
any very marked difference in the
totals. Any important change there
was in the year's results must be at-
triuted to the mines^of the Boundary
district, which', however, continue
lo maintain a comparatively large
produotion, mainly from those properties that have .been producing with
little or no intermission during the
last ten years."
Dividend Payers
Concluding, Mr. Robertson says—
"Finally, it is gratifying to note thai
several mining companies paid dividends in 1910. These were Medley
Gold .Mining Co., four quarterly dividends and a bonus, totalling 14 per
cent of the issued capital, £.200,000;
Le Roi No. 2, Ltd., three dividends
of two shillings each per share on
20,000 shares; Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co., two dividends each of 2
per cent; Granby Consolidated M. S.
& P. Co., one payment Bit the rate of
1 per cent on aboul $14,850,000; anil
the Hastings (British Columbia) Exploration Syndicate, Ltd., operating
Hie Arlington gold mine at Erie, Nelson mining division, a dividend of
sixpence per share on 60,370 issued
shares."

The fact that fashionable fair ones
and Mister Tommy Atkins have of
late used bearskin far less in order
lo achieve a resplendant appearance
has caused that animal to multiply
recently to an amazing degree
throughout ihe Province of British

there has not been so many bears
about as there tire today, If. Mr.
Bruin only knew, how Ihe would
approve of the presnt fashions.
Mr. Bryan Williams, tlie provincial game warden, who conveyed Ibis
Interesting information, said the other outstanding feature of the game
situation is the horde of wolves thai
are destroying the deer on'Vancouver island. They I ave practically ex-
terminated the deer In the north of
the island and have now started to
slaughter the wapiti. Tiie government offers a bounty or $16 on every
wolf's head, but the beasts are so
cunning thai the most alluring trip
fails to catch them and they are
much too knowing to eat poison.
 o	
Chief Engineer Doilds, however,
such as prevailed, a much larger vessel would have been in danger, and
my own experience on the Governor,
leads me to believe that the St. Denis, swept by those big seas, foundered
off the cape, and the discovery of the
wreckage at Cape Scott, sent ashore
by the northwesterly current, apparently confirms these opinions."
!    MARINE NEWS
TRADE WITH HERE
Two more steamers are on the
way to the Pacific coast to be added to tbe coasting fleet for service
between the south and northern
British Columbia ports. Mr. John
Call, manager of the Northern
Steamship company, states that a
steamer has been purchased by Capt.
Eddie, of Ihe Northern Steamship
company, in tbe United Kingdom and
has left Liverpool and another
steamer, a smaller vessel, bought to
replace the Petriana, which was sold
to the Canadian Northern Pacific
Fisheries company, left some lime
ago en route to the coast. Mr. Gait
would not announce the names of the
steamers, but stated that the larger
vessel is a steamer of 1,200 Ions register, suitable for the passenger and
freight trade ol' northern British
Columbia. The other vessel is a
smaller craft, which will lie used as
a freighter. She is slightly smaller
than the Petriana, being similar in
size and construction lo the steamer
British Columbia, formerly Ihe
Onyx, which was brought out last
summer for the Coast Steamship
company of ancouver. The smaller
vessel is practically a new one, having been built six years ago. This
steamer will handle freight, and the
larger vessel will be placed in a regular service to alternate with the
steamer Cetriana on a weekly
schedule to northern British Columbia ports.
ST. DENIS WAS IX SIIAI
That the ill-fated steamship St.
Denis went to sea in perfect trim
and with her winter North Atlantic
Plimsoll line out of water, is Ihe
statement of Maj. C. Gardiner Johnson, agent for Lloyd's in British Columbia, who returned from a visit to
California Tuesday night. Maj.
Johnson was out in the same gale
which caused the St. Denis to founder, for he was on his way south to
California on the steamship Governor.
Although the Governor left a day
or so ahead of the St. Denis, the bad
weather prevailed even then, and although the Governor is a splendid
sea boat she was obliged to heave to,
and arrived in San Francisco 2 4
hours late.
"We were informed by wireless
from shore that II was blowing 100
miles an hour, although un Ihe Governor we estimated the force of tlie
v. ind ui sn miles," said Mr. Johnson

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
NEW COAL  FIELDS
Rich District is Being Opened Up on
Line of Grand Trunk
Pacific.
Better Bodies of Fuel Expected (bun
Is Found  in  Crow's
Nest Puss
A vast new coal country, which
will prove far wealthier than the famous Crow's Nest coal country of
Southern Alberta, and which will
produce coul that will far exceed in
value for all purposes tbe coal which
Is taken out of the Crow's Nest
mines is to be opened up and developed west of Edmonton between the
McLeod river and the Rockies, for
the first time next year, says the Edmonton   Capital.
Companies with a total capitalization of something over $15,000,000,
at the heads of which are some of the
wealthiest and most prominent capitalists in the Dominion and of other
countries have been organized within tbe past year, to open up and develop this new found field of vast
coal beds, a development of which
the importance to Edmonton cannot
be estimated.
Tapped by G. T. P.
It is only within the past few years
that it has become generally known
to the world, that west of Edmonton, along the main line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and tlie projected
main line of the Canadian Northern
railway, lie coal beds that will produce coal superior in every way to
the Crow's Nest coal, now famous
throughout Ihe continent, and which
has been on the market for years.
Geologists, mining engineers, and
prospectors have known it for many
years, but, they kept their secrets
tight, and it has been only with the
coming of the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway, which will tap these rich
areas, thai interest has awakened to
the point of action. ,
It is only within the past year that
any actual development work has
taken place among these coal fields.
But during the year thai has just
assed, capital to the extent of millions, much of it from Great Britain
has boon raised to develop this coal.
and within the next year or two,
1 Edmonton, which is to benefit tremendously, will witness a stupendous
development in the country which
lies to the west close under tlhe foothills.
Vast Capital
Down in the department of the
provincial secretary of Alberta, there
are registered companes with a total
capitalization of over $12,000,000,
who have already conducted extensive development work on coal areas
out west and who next year will be
in a position .to mine coal.
In addition to these, other large
companies have been organized with
extensive capitalization, together
with smaller companies of local capitalists and others. Some of the
companies and Uieir capitalization
are as follows—-
Pacific Pass Coal Co.. . . $ 5,000,000
Yollowihead    Pass    Coal
and   Coke  Co      1,000,000
Jasper Collieries       2,500,000
Pembina Coal Co      1,100,000
German Development Co.    1,000,000
Total    $12,000,000
McKenzic Interested
In addition to these, Is the Brazen Collieries, headed by Sir William
McKenzie, rpesident of the Canadian
Northern, and capitalized at several
million's.
The Pacific Pass Coal Co. is a
group of local and Montreal capitalists headed by John Greenshields, of
Montreal. Their property is on the
Little Pembina river south of the
main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific at Edmonton.
Lying directly adjacent to this
property is that of the Yellowhead
Pass Coal and Coke company, headed by William O'Brien, of Montreal,
the  millionaire  Cobalt  mine  owner.
The Jasper Collieries, capitalized
at a million, is beaded by Anddew
l.aidlaw, of Spokane, and owns large
areas in the Jasper Park, just beyond
ihe crossing of the G. T. P. over the
Athabasca.
Work  Has  Been   Done
All these companies have done considerable work within the past year,
and will be ready to deliver coal next
year. The Yellowhead Pass Co. and
i In- Pacific Pass Co. properties will
he tapped by the 50-mile G. T. P.
branch now building south from the
main line, and which will be com-
pleted next summer.
The German Development company Is beaded by prominent eastern
nul German capitalists who, in conjunction witli the Canadian Northern
railway, have secured vast coal
areas along the Brazeau river, which
property will be served by the Cana-
diian Northern branch from Stettler,
and tiie G. T. P. branch from lOdson.
The Canadian Northern, under the
name of the Brazeau Collieries, have
secured a large amount of capital
from the old country to develop their
coal, and are rushing construction of
the branch railwap in order to take
out coal next year.
The Pembina Coal company Was
organized under the auspices of the
Western Canada Land company, and
have expended $1,000,000 in purchasing valuable coal lands along
the Pembina river, 60 miles west of
Edmonton. They have a capitalization of $1,100,000 and have done development work this year. In addition to this company, several other
companies capitalized with money
from the United States are developing coal In the vicinity of the Pembina.
Provide for Mountain Haul
Much of the coal that will be developed along the Grand Trunk Pacific
will supply the fuel to at least two
railway companies for the haul over
the mounains. The G. T. P. and
C. N. R. will take a very large pro-
proporton of the coal produced for
this purpose alone. But much of it
also will go to beat the homes of the
prairie provinces, and Edmonton
will stand to benefit immensely from
suoh trade. New coal towns which
will be tritutary to Edmonton in
tdade and commerce, will spring up
in the new coal country.
MOW WHALERS
Another whaling company is being
formed by American interests at Seattle to operate in Alaskan waters,
and contracts have been awarded to
the Moran shipyards for the construction of two steam whalers (similar-
in type to Ihe vessels of the Canadian Northern Pacific Fisheries company) which will be built at Seattle
at a cost of $100,000 for each vessel.
Tbe new concern will be friendly
to the Victoria company and has arranged not to interfere with the
hunting ground or compete in the
mraket held by the local company.
The American company has asked
the Canadian Northern Fisheries
company to loan them one. of its
steamers lor use as a model for the
construction of the new company's
vessels and it is expected that this
request will be acceded to and one
of Ihe local company's fleet will be
j sent to Seattle for this purpose.

MANY   INQUIRIES
Aldermen  Want  Information on Many
Subjects at First Council
Sitting.
the  council   to  consider
before  Wednesday even-
Questi I   a   City   Hall    Will
Early Gone into—Site to
lie Decided Upon
lie
Although the silting of the council lust evening was practically tbe
lirst tin- tin- year, t'ue mayor and
aldermen -■■<•' down in work without any loss m' iinn- and considered
sunn- matters of pressing moment.
All I he ii.- mbei I lie council wctv
I in   nml   after   ihe   committees
had been struck a star! was made
on tbe order paper.
The city engineer reported that
pumping was ni cessary to supply
water. He asked that a suffii lent
supply nf gasoline in- secured to
guard  againsl   a  shortage.
The  repor ...   	
purchasing agent authorized to order the gasoline.
Many Questions
Aid. Newton, under the head of
inquiries referred to the desire on
the part nf citizens for light. He
expected that the matter would re-
celve attention, having heen referred
to in iho mayor's outline of work.
Aid. Newton also wanted to know
if something could not be done to
safeguard the water supply in view
of lire protection, stating that he
had been informed some of the hydrants were frozen. He also referred to the unsuitable character of
the fire engine purchased. He suggested thai perhaps an exchange of
engines  might  be  made.
Aid. Pattullo said thai he understood that not a single main was
frozen up. The old council Insisted
upon the engineer sparing no expense to see that the mains were
kept in service tor fire protection.
Aid. Hilditch corroborated Aid.
Pattullo.
Aid. Kerr said lie was told by a
member of Hie street department
that all the mains were working.
The city engineer arriving he was
asked concerning it and said that
he knew of no main being frozen
except a dead end on Third avenue.
Auto Chemical
Aid. Pattullo referring to the
question of the lire engine, said that
the old council had taken up the
question of whether it would be
better to have horses or an auto.
Tbe council favored the auto on account -of the condition of the roads
in the city. This was to be a chemical engine and hose reel. It wat
true that an auto might be stalled
such weather as they had now, but
horses would likely be stalled also.
His Worship suggested that the
fire and water committee might go
into this.
Aid. Newton suggested wiring to
the firm to hold the order.
This was deemed unwise until the
committee   reported.
Aid. .Morrissey wanted to have information as to when residents of
Ninth avenue would be able to have
water.
It was suggested that the report
should be forthcoming for the next
meeting.
Financial Report
Aid. Clayton wanted to know
when a financial report for the past
year would be forthcoming.
Aid. Pattullo said that the auditor
was al work and the report would
soon be forthcoming.
Aid. Kerr wanted to know
whether nothing could be done to
relieve the situation on Third avenue. If a fire had occurred it would
have l)3en a very difficult situation
with so much snow on the street.
Vld. Hilditch thought il would bo
Impossible to have the snow hauled
away by horses. It would be better to wait for the thaw which wns
likely   to  come   within   a   few   days.
Aid.   Pattullo,   in   support   of  the
recoi mdo-tlon ol the mayor with
respect lo securing a permanent
wilier supply urged that, this should
receive  early  attention.
City Hull Question
Aid. Hllditch suggested that the
question of a city hall should be
taken up at once. At present the
council was paying $100 a month
fen tt'or the present building
occupied. it, would be necessary to got another building for
the engineering department. An
early start should be made in getting a permanent ctiy badd and thus
overcome this expense.
His Worship, in ibis connection
referred to the fact that the last
council had recommended the site
on the Market Place for the city
hall. If that was still the wish of
tho council he would take It up with
fihe government, when he went to
Victoria and press for lite
of getting a definite answer as to
whether  it  could   be  obtained.     He
would like
the matter
ing.
Aid. .Morrissey suggested that
perhaps Fulton street could be
straightened and a suitable site afforded there.
Aid. Newton objected to poles for
wiling being put  on  the streets.
An adjournment was taken until
Wednesday   evening.

ICE GIVES TROUBLE
Canadian   Pish  and     Cold    Storage
Company Will Cense Building
Operations for u Little Time
Owing to the trouble which the
company bus experienced during the
pasl few days in getting t-m-k from
the quarry in Port Essington, the
Canadian Fish and Cold Storage
company lias decided to suspend
building operations at the works
near Soul  Cove  for  tlie present.
The trouble that the company has
met witli is due lo Hie fact that
there is a lot of ice off the point
where the granite is obtained and
thi skeeps drifting in and out so that
ii becomes uncertain when the scow
inn he got out safely. As the ice
at that point does not last for
many weeks it has been deemed wise
to suspend the work here lor a little time.
Had it not. been for this the com-
iiiiny could without hindrance have
proceeded with the work here nil
winter.

ENTERS UPON DUTY
City Council Takes Up the Task at the
City Hall at Noon
Yesterday.
Ml Make Formal Declaration to Obey
Laws  nml   Take   Seats
as Board
Yesterday at noon tbe city council lor the present year was duly installed in office and went through
all the necessary formalities to enable them -to sit and carry on the affairs of the city for the next twelve
months. Assembling at tlie city hall
at 11.30 the most of the members
bad to wait until 12 for one member who had mistaken the time
when the ceremony of swearing In
the council was to take place. The
city clerk having read the declaration as to the election returns each
memiber of the council made (his
declaration before the police magistrate, A. Carss, and was assigned
his seat at the board.
The arrangement of the seats as
was made evident when the committees were struck brings the various
members of the committees all together and is a very convenient one.
With the mayor at the head of the
table there is seated to hjis right
aldermen in the following order—
Aid. Smith, Aid. Clayton, Aid.
Kerr, Aid. Pattullo; to the left of
Mis Worship sits the city clerk and
then the aldermen in the following order — Aid. Kirkpatrick, Aid.
Newton, Aid. Morrissey. Aid. Hi'-
ilit.ch is given a seat at the end of
the table opposite His Worship.
After the members of the council
bad taken their seats at the table
the seal of the city was handed over
to His Worship by Mr. Carss, who at
the same time extended congratulations to Mayor Manson and all the
members of the council upon their
election. He reminded them that
the city would expect a groat deal
of them; that they would be expected to exercise all due economy In the
transaction of the business of the
city and that nt the same time there
would be a demand for a considerable amount of work in keeping with
Ihe needs of the place.
Mayor Mnnnon expressed the
thanks of the council on Magistrate
Coras having kindly attended to
swear in ihe council. Tile council
would from time to time have to
puss bylaws probably for the better
conduct of the affairs and us police
magistrate he would have a part in
seeing lo the enforcement of those.
The council would ever be ready to
take any suggestions that might be
made by the magistrate with respect to such bylaws.
Addressing the members of the
council, His Worship extended congratulations. He felt that Ihe council would work harmoniously for
the betterment of the city. There
was a lot of heavy work but he felt
sure each one would take his full
responsibility In seeing that the
work was carried out. well.
As the council was to sit in the
evening he saw no need of taking
up   business  until   then.
On motion of Aid. Smith nnd Aid.
Hilditch the council then adjourned
until 8  o'clock in the evening.
GAMBLING   CHARGES
Failure   to   Secure   Convictions in the
Police Court
Cases.
Magistrate    Acquits    O'Shuiigliness}1
and /nielli  on   Evidence
Before  Him
In the police court yesterday
morning, Magistrate Carss dismissed the charge laid against I-!.
O'Sbaugihnessy of keeping ;i common
ginning house. After Ihe evidence
was taken a few days before W. B.
l-'isher, representing the accused,
asked for a dismissal on the ground
Him it had not been proven that
gambling took place on the daibe
specified   if  il   were  proven  nt  all.
Yesterday Alex Manson, I'm- toe
prosecution, asked to amend the Information to cover this point, when
objection   was  raised   by  .Mr.   Fisher.
The magistrate said he would nol
require id decide the point as it
hud nol been proved that O'Shatigh-
nessy had been in charge of Ihe
louse. Ii had been given in evi-
lence Hint he was there and play-
Ing hut that did not, make him a
keeper of  Hie house.
This morning the charge against
Zarelli of gambling in tlie Alaska
Club was concluded, evidence being
produced to corroborte Zarelli's
contention that there was no rake-
off in the games.
Tlhe magistrate dismissed the
case.
Zarelli was fined $5 for carrying
a firearm.
A charge against Zarelli for allowing liquor to be sold ou his
premises, was dismissed on the
ground that the owner of property
is not liable for the acts of others
who   may   violate   the   law.

IMPROVED FACILITIES
G. T. I*. Is Getting Heady for u Very
Busy Season  With Opening' of Spring-
In   spite     of     the     disagreeable
weather of the past week the G.  T.
P.  road  gang in  the  city  has  been
making  steady  pjrogress in  connection   with   the   track , laying   in   the
yards.     The   rails  have   been   laid
across the end of Centre street and
now the rolling stock can be carried
along past the wharves of the company to a position close to the bluff
opposite the small boat houses.
This completes the main line of
the railway through the yards to the
point referred to and the coaches
have been carried forward to the
end of the track.
The company is preparing for a
very heavy traffic along its line in
the spring and all the work that
can be done in the city yards preparatory to enabling the expeditious
handling of that rade is being done
this winer before the traffic really
opens.
Mr. Meehan, the general superintendent, has also made arrangements for the accommodation of the
smaller craft alongside the new
section of wharf that has been put
in by the company this summer.
This is intended to allow those who
have to do business with the city by
means of small vessels an opportunity to do so with no inconveni-
ience. It is not the intention to
allow the landing which is afforded
there to become a place where all
kinds of craft may tie up and prevent its being used for the purposes
for which it was intended . The pro-
jec Is to let the fullest use be mado
of the low floating wharf for all
who hvae business to do. Those taking ndvnnlage of It are supposed to
vacate It as soon as their business
is completed.
 o	
MAYOR'S PROPOSALS
(Continued From Page One.)
the desirability of looking closely
into tbe standing charges of each department, and see if it is not possible to effect a reduction In the expenses without impairing the efficiency of the service.
AH committees should as early as
possible submit lo the finance committee estimates of expenditure for
their departments in order that this
committee may be able to prepare
estimates of receipts and expenditures for the year.
Respectfully submitted,
WM.  MANSON,
Mayor.
On motion of Aid. Hilditch this
was referred to the various committees to be disposed of by the committees in so far as they wore affected.
