POLICE
HOLD INITIAL MEETING
Body Agrees to Follow Course Adopted Last Year of Giving Chief Vick-
ers a Free Hand-Aid. Bullock-Webster Praises the Work Done
by Former Body-A Restricted District the Mayor
Thinks Should be Recognized.
The Board of Police Commissioners held Its first meeting yefterday
afternoon in the mayor's office with
the mayor. Alderman Bullock-Webster and .1. II. Thompson all ptesent.
Cnief Vlckers ami the city ~'ci'k as
R« the secretary of the board was
li'-;i"t. Duri i.; the proceedings
Pcv F. W. Ke t through Alderman
Douglas asked if he might attend.
The mayor said that he was perfectly agreeable if the other commis-
■ sioners were and on approval being
expressed    Mr. Kerr listened to the
proceedings.
An application from Walter Shore
for a position on the police force
was read.
The mayor asked if he understood
aright that the chief selected his own
staff last year.
Chief Vickers replied in the affirmative.
The mayor suggested that if it was
the wish of the commissioners they
might follow the same course as in
the past.
This plan , on motion, was adopted
and the application of Mr. Shore was
referred to the chief.
The chief's report for the month
was read, showing that 41 cases had
been laid during the month.
The report was adopted.
The accounts for the month were
presented.
Commissioner Bullock-Webster
asked if the groceries were bought at
different stores.        ' "  -
It was explained that they were
bought a month at a time at the different stores.
The   accounts   were   passed.
Estimates Presented
The estimates for the year were
presented by the chief. They amounted to $12 945, about $200 higher
then last year.
The chief explained that unless
(here was something unforeseen the
amount was ample.
Mayor's Views
With the ordinary business cleared away, the mayor converted the
meeting into one for the expression
of individual opinions with respect
to enforcing law.
The mayor said that up to yesterday he had not had any official
notice of the appointment of the
commission.
It had been brought to his attention that the barrooms were being
run pretty wide open, and that
young boys were allowed around
pool rooms. He had taken upon
himself to take this up with the
chief of police, and the city solori-
tor. The chief had been asked to
see that the regulations as to licensed houses be lived up to. A bylaw as they knew was before the
council dealing with tho question of
pool  rooms.
The citizens as a whole were expecting the commission to see that
the laws were lived up to the letter.
He thought the licensed places
should nol be allowed to serve
guests with liquor except during
regit hit'  meal  hours,     The city soli
citor advised him that the intent of
the provincial law was that liquor
should not be served guests except
at the meal hours. He thought they
should-make this a part of the city
regulations.
Another matter which he felt
should be attended to was the getting after those "blind piggers."
These should be got after and the
law rigidly enforced.
Restricted District
Another matter was whether the
chief should not get after the Co-
mox avenue section to prevent their
disposing of liquor illegally. These
people were disposing of liquor in
opposition to the licensed places.
The police commission might also
make a recommendation as to the
tacit allowance of these places to
exist. His own notion was that it
would be wiser to acknowledge the
advisability of allowing these places
to exist in the segregated district
under the supervision of the chief
of police as to maintaining order.
AW.  Bullock-Webster
Aid. Bullock-Webster agreed that
the public expected to see drastic
improvements along this line. There
had been a great improvement under the last commisison, and especially since Chief Vickers took control. He thought they should see to
it that the laws were strictly lived
up  to.
With respect to the restricted
area he always -felt that while not
a necessity, it was perhaps the most
advisable way of handling this. The
keeping of a restricted district was,
he felt, the wisest course in the interests of moralty. As to the enforcing of the law as to selling liquor in these places, this was a difficult thing to do. • At the same time
he felt all that could be done should
be.
He felt that the laws should be
enforced.
Wants Laws Enforced
Commissioner Thompson said that
he stood for the strict enforcement
of the law. He felt that the chief
should be Instructed to enforce the
law, and the commissioners should
stand behind him in it.
(Snide to Magistrate
The mayor said that in taking
cases into'court he did not believe
in dictating to tlie police magistrate.
But when hundreds of dollars were
spent, to secure a conviction, he did
not think it was right that a $nu
fine only should be inflicted.
Something ought to be done to
draw the attention of the magistrate
to'this. It should be brought to him
in some way that when convictions
in such cases were secured he should
make the fines severe.
Under ex-Mayor Manson and Mr,
McMullln before incorporation, heavy
fines were Inflicted. As much us
$200 at a clip" bad been Innicted.
They should take it u|> witli the
government to have the magistrate
Impose such fines :is will stamp out
the nuisance of selling liquor In
"blind   pigs."
FORTIFYING   ISLANDS
Fanning Will  lie Protected  by Brit-
ish Government as Coaling
Station
Confirmation of the report that
England was preparing to fortify
Fanning Island and to maintain a
coaling station there has been received in private advices from Fanning Island, which said that the
steamship Makura had landed a number of big guns on the island.
Reports from Honolulu that the
steamer Makura had landed big guns

Indicate that the British government
Is carrying out a programme announced last November when a syndicate of British capitalists took over

said that the syndicate planned to

CABINET  INTRIGUE
London, Feb. 8—According
to this morning's Standard

sion in the British cabinet,
involving an intrigue to displace Premier Asqultli in
favor of Lloyd George.
use of merchant and naval vessels,
It being considered that the island
would prove of great strategic value
after the opening of the Panama Canal.
Aid. Bullock-Webster thought
that if a decided stand were taken
the  magistrate would  live up to It.
Commissioner Thompson supposed the fines were fixed by law.'
The subject of pool rooms and the
city bylaw was Introduced when the
sugegstion was made that the commissioners might, if they saw fit,
make any recommendation to the
council.
Strict Enforcement
Commissioner Thompson thought
the commisioners were there to see
that the laws were enforced. He
was in favor of enforcing any bylaw
the city passed.
There followed a free discussion
relative to pool playing, and how
far it could be done without violating the law. The mayor said that
one objection by the workingmen
was that clubs were allowed to play
pool on Sundays or at any hou^s,
while they could not He had suggested to these men that perhajps
they could have a pool room which
could be regarded as a private place,
like a private parlor, where the
game could be played if they wanted
to, although he was not advocating
Sunday playing.
Aid. Bullock-Webster thought it
might be regarded as unfair if the
clubs could continue laying while
workingmen were not allowed tojdo
so.
Commissioner Thompson pointed
out that the clubs • were- »ndi.:>**!?v>
vincial charter, and these were not
brought under the new rule.
The subject of what license fees
to charge pool rooms was brought
up also by the mayor, who wondered if a heavier charge proportionately could not be made for a
single table than was made for several.
The single table, he was told, was
used only as a blind to play gambling games.
Class   Legislation
Aid. Bullock-Webster was afraid
that this would be regarded as
c'ass legislation of the worst kind,
although he did not want to see
anything done to encourage gambling.
The mayor also wondered if some
plain clothes men would not be advisable on the force.
It was pointed out to bom that
they soon became known and their
usefulness in securing convictions
for gambling, etc., was gone.
It was thought best to continue
the practice followed last year of
leaving this to the chief to select
specials for this work as the occasion arose.

NO PHYSICAL VIOLENCE
AT THE BELFAST MEETING
Many Interruptions Were Given to the Speeches and Churchill Was
Burned in Effigy but Soldiers and Police Kept Everything
Under Control-Some Features of the Home Rule
Bill Set Forth by Lord of the Admiralty
Belfast, Feb. 8.—Threats of death
and violence to Winston Churchill,
John Redmond and others if they
carried out their avowed intention to
aeliver addresses in support of Home
Rule fell flat here today. Although
the speakers were subjected to all
manner of abuse no attempt at actual physlcial violence was made,
thousands of troops and police having the situation in hand at all times.
Great crowds gathered despite the
rain and in places Churchill was
burned in' effigy, as were also Sir
Edward Carson and Lord Londonderry,   the   Unionist   leaders.
Amid hoots and jeers and counter
cheers, Mr. Churchill and his wife,
guarded by a body of police, rode in
an  auto   from   the   hotel   to   Celtic
Park. At one time tilings looked
ominous when shortly after the first
lord of the admiralty left the hotel
a rush was made for his auto, but
the police prevented any serious result.
Safeguard All Parties
The most important parts of his
speech were that under the measure
proposed religious freedom would be
secured; representation to all parties
In the Irish parliament would be
guaranteed; laws and taxes unjust to
any party would be guarded against;
and Ireland would control its own
finances.
Under the terms of the Home Rule
bill armed forces in Ireland will be
controlled by the Imperial government, and the Imperial government
will continue its land purchase and
pensions schemes. Clauses relative to religious freedom and taxes
will be inserted to relieve any anxiety among the Protestants of Ulster.
Advantages of Scheme
The Government's Home Rule
bill, said Churchill, would fit into a
general scheme of parliamentary devolution, leading ultimately to Hie
federation of the whole Empire.
Mr. Churchill contended that Ihe
settlement of the long quarrel between the British government and
the Irish people would be a boon to
the Empire beyond compare, as the
Irish throughought the world w;ere
the power who had. in the past mostly worked counter to British interests.
GREAT COAL CENTRE
Graham Island Will Soon be Fully Exploited as Far as Measures
are Concerned.
Masset's Prospective Areas Are Now
to be Looked Into by Canadian-
American Syndicate
The visit of Alex Faulds M.E., to
Graham Island at this time is in connection' with exploiting -measures
which lie near Masset. They are in
fact within a mile and a half of that
flourishing centre on the east side of
the inlet.
These areas are held by a syndicate in the south which now hopes
to begin actual mliing upon them.
Mr. Faulds, who has within the past
few years, made wider examinations
into the coal area of Graham Island
than any other engineer, and Is
therefore in a position to know more
about them than perhaps any one
else, wll start a force boring upon
the ground to testjhe situation.
He will remain tifere until the
work is well advanced, when he will
return to Prince. Rupert on his way
south.

NOT   liMOISljATIVK
Vlayor Newton, as chairman of
pol ce i ommlssion, either fails
to realize the functions of that body
or else regards it as a place where
gallery play can be made. Tlie police
commission is in no sense of the
word legislative in .fs duties. Its
task is to administer ilie police affairs and sec tiiat that force carries
out the law. When tlie commission
yesterday entered upon the discussion o| tile form of bylaw to be passed, it went out of the scope of its
duties. The situation was aptly dis-
cribed by Commissioner Thompson,
when he said that the commission
would be prepared to see that any
bylaws passed by the city were carried out.
The discussion of rules to be observed by pool rooms and bar rooms
is not the duty of the commission.
That body's duty is to see that the
police force is kept efficient, that
no abuses are allowed to creep into
the force, and that that body sees
thai the laws whether they are city
bylaws or statutes, are enforced.
It is true that the police force
to some extent reflects the will of
the police commissioners. A commission lenient in the matter of enforcing the law is apt to have a
police force that is lenient also. A
strict commission will generally have
a strict, police force. It does not always follow ibat a chief of police is
lenient because the commission is
so. A chief is in duty bound to enforce laws whether his commissioners back him up in it or not. Th i
commission may make it uncomfortable lor a chief if he does not
follow their policy, bin he is net
obliged  in  do so.

DISTRICT SANCTIONED
Tlie attitude of Mayor Newton on
the restricted district as set forth
by him at the meeting of the police
commission yesterday will not be
very satisfactory, we believe, to
those who love law and order. The
segregation of Ihe section of the
community may be the best system
yet found lor dealing witli what is
one of the most vexatious questions
to he handled today. While we would
hesitate to advise the attempt being
made to stump this out at the risk
of scattering the habitues all over
tin cltXj yet it should never be allowed to be forgotten Hint the evil
is an  illegal   act.
.Mayo;'   Newton,   however,   by   his
announcement in the commission
yesterday, Initiates a new order. He
says in effect we will sanction I lie
i rime. We will put restrictions upon
ii. but   we officially allow   il  to exist.
Surely this Is n backward step.

Thompson gave no Indication that he
seconded such a move as this which

ago particularly in some parls of the
United States. Aid, Bullock-Webster
while supporting the mayor's remarks, we do nol believe realized
the step that was involved.
We disagree entirely with the
policy of attempting by the way the
mayor proposed to do It, to legalize
an evil such as this by any form of
public approval. If the evil must he
tolerated as a matter of policy in
the best interests of all, let it be only
tolerated. and not given official

BIRDS FEELINGS
if
x-

**************************
A physiologist or a naturalist will
frequently do things in the name of
science that he would not do as a
man. Not every physiologist who
dissects a live anima, Is hard-hearted. Nor is the naturalists who robs
a nest necessarily indifferent to the
grief of the old birds. The one uses
the knife that he may illustrate physiology; the other steals the eggs to
get at the facts of ornithology.
Doctor Brewer, tlie ornithologist,
once had a painful experience while
studying the hermit thrush In the
woods at Uova Scotia. As he had
begun to suspect that there were two
varieties of this bird, he came upon
a nest of the rarest variety in the
thick woods.
Finding the old birds gone, ho
hastily took the nest, in which were
several eggs, into the light of an
open space not far off. lie had just
blown out the contents of the eggs
when the old birds returned. So
touching was their lamentation, the
tone far more pathetic than the
birds' ordinary cry, that, said the
doctor, "I would have put the eggs
all back If 1 could."
The doctor once owned a mocking
bird whom he valued for his tender
familiarities. The bird lived chiefly out of the cage. In fly season he
would perch on his master's finger
and be carried round the walls, darting at every fly as he went, and devouring it with special gusto.
One day the doctor's mother placed several Thanksgiving pies in the
"spare room" to cool. The bird flew
into the room, selected a mince pie,
pulled the crust off, and was enjoying the mincemeat when the old lady-
discovered him.
Putting the pies on a large tray,
she was taking them to a closet,
when the bird, seeing her intention,
and evidently seeing also that her
hands were holding the sides of the
tray, flew down and expressed his indignation by angrily pulling off her
cap.
A number of other incidents are
on record where birds showed their
disgust for those who robbed thai-
nests of eggs, and where birds even
formed in a body to attack those collecting eggs.
The sorrow of pet crows and parrots whose masters are removed by
death is often noticed, and one very
tame crow which was owned by »
woman in Virginia would fly to the
cemetery and sit for hours on a tree
which stood near the grave of Its beloved master.
Parrots and even canaries have
been known to refuse to eat and
have died in sorrow and grief over
the loss of their human companions.
It is just as reasonable to suppose
a bird has feelings as well as horses
or dogs, which are frequently inconsolable after the loss of their owners. Birds surely grieve after the
loss of their mates, and they, of
course, could become attached to human friends.
 o	
LAND DISPUTES
will investigate all the circumstances
of the conflicting claims, and make
his report to the minister with the
least possible delay.
The controversy has been in progress during some time past, by reason of the activity of people acquiring title to lands under the Coal
Mines Act. Some years ago, it will
be remembered, the government
placed under reserve an extensive
area of Graham Island for exclusive entry by pre-emptors, but as
the Coal Mines Act stood at that
time it was nevertheless possible for
licensed prospectors to enter the reserved areas, and thus is happened
that pre-emptors and coal licensees
got on the same ground, and the situation was further complicated by
the surveys of timber licences existent prior to the declaration of
the reserve, and also prior to both
the entry of Jjoth coal licensees and
pre-emptors. The surveys have been
found to have shifted somewhat from
where they were supposed to be, and
this also has increased the difficulties of equiably dealing with the various interests in conflict.

Excellent food—prompt service—
popular prices—Ward's lunch counter.
Some of the answers given by candidates for the Chicago police force
at a recent examination were: —
"The duties of a policeman are to
guard the peace and limb of the
city."
"If I found a man on my beat suffering with a broken leg 1 would ask
him his name, address, age, occupation, married or single, and would
I then see if he would rather go home
or to a hospital."
"Buglary is a crime where you
crawl in a man's house with the intention  of intimidating to steal."
Government Agent Will Endeavor to
Settle Disputes That Have Arisen
in Queen Charlotte Islands
With a view to the early adjustment of the various land disputes
that have for some months past been
a source of very considerable vexation to residents of Graham Island,
of the Queen Charlotte group—an
arrangement that will be equitable
to al concerned and based upon first
hand and comprehensive investigation—the Minister of Lands, lion.
W. R. Ross has Instructed Mr. s. A.
Fletcher, government agent at New
Westminster to proceed to the areas
in dispute in something of the capacity ni' an envoy extraordinary,
ami acting upon tin' Instructions
which lie received, says tin- Colonist
in further explanation or the question, .Mr. Fletcher will leave for the
north forthwith. From here he will
proceed direct In Prince Rupert,
where ho will call upon the reBldenl
government agent, who exercises
jurisdiction over tho lands In dispute, consulting and acting with that
agent in the matter, The appointment and instruction of Mr. Fletcher
meet with the fullest approval of
Air. Win. Manson, M.P.P., who has
been energetically pressing upon the
minister the necessity for some such
action ever since his arrival here to
take up his legislative duties of the
session.
As generally well understood, there
have recently developed a number
of disputes over lands on Graham
Island in the vicinity of Masset Inlet and of Lawn Hill, these disputes
having arisen largely by reason of
the overlapping of lands held under
coal licences, lands held under timber licences, and lands held under
pre-emption   records.     Mr.  Fletcher

POLICE COMMISSIONERS
HOLD INITIAL MEETING
(Continued From Page One)
The mayor wanted the chief to
understand that he would not be begrudged  money  to use in  this way.
Aid. Bullock-Webster thought
they might study results a little.
A great deal of further discussion
took place which would have constituted a discussion on the bylaw
at the council board better than,
ene  in   the  commission.
The next regular meeting of the
commission will be held Marth 6th.

LOOKS LIKE FRAUD
Information   Received   Locally   That
Indicates Something Wrong
in Real Estate
Information has been received by
a few in this city which would
Indicate thai there is something
wrong in connection with a real estate offering which bears upon this
city. From Alberta conies the news
that there are lots being offered
for sale in Prince Rupert Park,
which is located on the other side of
Kaien Island, but it is inferred from
the letter received that the location
is made to appear to he very importantly situated as far as Prince
Rupert  is  concerned.
While all the particulars are not
available, enough has been obtained
to prompt very serious suspicions as
to what is going on in connection
with the sale of these lots,

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
Hever have "air leaks"—
For around every opening Into the body there
Is a   Malleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty Is needed in such joints.    They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus stove  bolts and  stove  putty.    It's
Important to every  one using  or  buying
a range.
