Polity    of    Commissioners    Against
Two Licenses in One Name Results
In  Withdrawal  of Application
At the sitting of the license commissioners on Friday afternoon it
was made evident that the board is
not in favor of one man holding more
than one license, even though the licenses so held are of different characters. As a result of this (dereislon
being reached C. ,7. Maynard had to
decide between a bottle license or
a wholesale one. He chose the former. There were present at the meeting the full board, Mayor Manson,
Alderman Smith and Commissioner
The minutes of the previous meeting were amended in part by the
striking out of some of the remarks
made by Aid. Hilditch, who sat as
chairman at the last meeting,
VV. E. Fisher, acting for Austin
Brown, brought up the question of
the latter's application for a bottle
license. He wished to know if the
license was refused on the ground
that the statutory declaration was
not made in writing. If it were he
thought it might be reconsidered, as
there was nothing obligatory as to
its being in  writing.
The board ruled that the application had been refused and It could
not come up again.
On the application of S. F. MacDonald for a whilesaie license, Commissioner Smith wanted assurance
that the business would be run by
the applicant. He did not favor the
1'lan of these licenses being granted
and then being transferred to others.
This met the views of the board,
and as Mr. Fisher, tlie solicitor for
Mr. MacDonald, could not give the
assurance sought, the application
was withdrawn.
The application for a renewal of
the license of Alex. Prudhomme of
the Savoy Hotel wns next brought up.
His worship said that with clause
in the bylaw suspended which required a formal notice as to a renewal
of a licence there was no need of
the hoard taking any action in the
case. The clerk could issue the renewal as a matter of course. He
suggested that the chief of police
might be heard as to whether there
were any complaints against the
_  Chief    Vickers   said    there    were
His worship said the clerk could
issue the renewal.
The renewal of the bottle licences
then came up for consideration.
His worship said that it appeared
that Mr. Maynard held in addition to
this bottle license a wholesale license. He had received information
that the other bottle license issued
by the board was really being or
about to be operated in conjunction
with this one. There were, in fact,
two bottle licenses to be operated together in different establishments.
This was an objectionable way to
have their licenses and he thought
they should be run entirely separate.
They were in the same shape as Mr.
Prudhomme with respect to renewal.
The board did not require to take
any action, the clerk being at liberty
to renew them.
Addressing himself to Mr. Carss,
who appeared as counsel for Mr.
Maynard, his worship said that at
the expiration of the next six months
they might have to face a difficulty.
The1 principle of holding two licenses
wai bad. He felt that his client
should be obliged to decide to drop
one of the licenses, either the wholesale or the bottle license.
Mr. Carss said he did not know
of these bottle licenses being issued
as a partnership. While the two
applicants were friends and assisted
each other in the preparing of the
petition he knew they were not associated in the business. It was foreign
to him that there was any partner
Mr. Carss did not think there was
anything to prevent a wholesale license being held by the same per
son as a bottle license.
His worship thought it was an objectionable way of having the license. ..  - iwu
Commissioner Smith felt, In view
of this attitude by his worship thai
the board might decide to grant only-
one license to any holder. A motion
by Commissioner Smith along this
line carried.
Mr. Carss asked leave to consult
with his client, who, after consultation agreed to drop the wholesale
The application for a renewal of
Maynard's wholesale license was then
reconsidered, it being stated by the
clerk in reply to a question that while
the license had been ordered renewed
it had never been issued.
Mr. Carss asked leave to withdraw
the application for a renewal of the
wholesale license, which was granted.
His worship, addressing Mr, Carss
relative to tlie bottle license, said that
there had been some doubt hitherto
is to whether a bottle license was a
retail license within the meaning of
the act. The point was now up before the courts. If it should be decided that a bottle license was a
retail license within the meaning of
the Act then the holders of these
bottle licenses should be prepared to
be the first to be dropped should
it be found advisable to lessen the
number of licenses within the city.
As to the two parties being interested together in. both licenses, he
warned Mr. Carss that he should be
in a position to give information at
the next sitting as to there being
two separate licenses in every sense
of the word.    If he is not able to do

Reports  Presented   to   Council  Show
That Money Has Been
Strets  Cost   Less   Under  the  Public
Works   Department  Than   by
Tenders Submitted
A report was presented before the
council last evening which showed a
gratifying condition in connection
with the public works department in
the city. His worship, upon the presentation of the report, said he
thought Supperintendent MacNeil
was to be congratulatd upon the success with which he was conducting
the department.
The report was in connection with
work done ou Seventh avenue, where
a number of residents, after calling
for the plank roadway and the nee
essary steps being taken to provide
it, petitioned against the work proceeding unless it were done by
awarding it to a private contractor.
The work was continued under the
day labor system and last evening
the engineer's report was presented
as to cost, The lowest tender for the
work would have entailed $586.81.
The work was done by the city workmen for $502.90, making a saving
of over $80 to the residents.
Aid. Hilditch, upon the presentation of the report, called attention
to the fact that the lowest tender
in this case was the lowest that had
ever been received by the city, which
made the figures all the more gratifying from tbe day labor standpoint.
Another report was presented by
the city engineer relative to the grading being done by the city between
Lynch's and the Knox Hotel. Under
the lowest tender the work so far
would have cost $2 411.92.
It was being done by the day labor system and has cost so far only
$2,071.74, making a saving of $340.-

Olty    Solicitor     Reports     U]K>ii
Necessary Steps to  He
Taken »
Before the council last evening,
a report was read from the city
solicitor, Fred Peters, K. C, dealing
with the question of a small debts
court here. He showed how the court
was usually constituted. Either the
police magistrate or Some one else
was appointed for the purpose and
while the aim is to provide a cheap
means of collecting small debts yet
by taking advantage ot the power
conferred upon the county court
judge the process of collecting could
be done inexpensively if a lawyer
were not employed.
Aid. Clayton thought the matter
might be more fully looked into,
which will be done later.
Thomas Hysllp has applied for the
position of engineer of the street

post of engineer on the rock crusher
Mr. Yolen Williams Representing the Granby Company
is Making an Examination Into the Whole of the
Mineral Area Which May be Tributary to
the Reduction Plant Which His
Company is to Erect in
This Territory.
William .lolen Wil'ianis, consulting
engineer of the Granby smelter, is
spending a few months in the northern part of this province and in
Alaska and the Yukon investigating
the mining outlook for his company.
His visit here is a promise of greater
developments on the part of the company he represents.
Mr, Willias has, in company with
other officials of the company, examined the mineral deposits at Hidden Creek and Alice Arm. They also
have visited Stewart and while there
went up to the mines and saw what
the prosperties had to offer in the
way of prospective producers. Mr.
Williams will leave here for Prince
of Wales Island on the first steamer
and intends then to proceed to White
lorse and Conrad City to see what
those centres have to offer.
It is possible also that he will pay
a visit to Hazelton and that district
before he is finished with his work
and may also go to the Queen Charlottes or any other points nearby
where there is any prospect of ore
being produced in quantity.
Mr. Williams explains that his mission is one of seeking exact information relative to the territory which
may come within the radius of the
smelter which his company has in
Asked if he was seeking to purchase properties, Mr. Williams said
he was prepared to buy if he saw
anything which appealed to him as a
good proposition at the price offered.
He sought, however, to get exact information as to the mining wealth
of the north before the plans of the
company were formed for the smelter
works. The character of the ore to
be treated is being studied so as to
adapt  the  works to  the supply.
He confirms the statement, made by
Mr. Sylvester, made to the Journal
some days ago, to the effect that
tlie location  of the smelter  was  not
yet decided. While the company
owns the Hidden Creek mines and
have an immense body of re there
the whole proposition of supply from
all points is being looked into. Stewart will be considered and also any
other points that have attractions
from the standpoint of business.
Accompanying Mr. Williams on his
visit here is Mr. Newton, who is in
charge of the drilling work at the
Hidden Creek mine. The property is
heing fully developed by the company.
Mr. Sylvester and other officials
of the Granby who have been to
Goose Bay and Stewart have gone
south after examining into the siua-
A conversation with Mr, Williams
leads to the impression that the
Granby company has in view immense
plans for this northern country.
There is abundance of ore which is
easily treated and the supplies from
the different points work well together. It is probable at first that
the works will reduce the ore to
matte which will be shipped to the
refinery. Later it may become advisable to complete the whole process
on the ground where the smelter is
located. The indications point to a
town of probably 3,000 or 4,000 people being provided for at Goose Bay
if the works are located there, as
there must be the double staffs for
the smelter and for the mines at the
one place. This population would not
naturally be reached at once as the
work of construction will take some
little time.
Mr. Williams is well pleased with
ttuj, outlook in the north. He admits that the ground has never really
been gone over yet. It is just beginning. The riches of the northern
part of the province are quite the
equal of the southern portion, he
thinks, and rich returns should follow the opening up of the districts,

Stewart, that the names of all pupils
who have passed tlie entrance either
here or elsewhere and who would attend and take the advanced work

Frame Up
At the council board last evening
the question of Chinese laundries was
brought up, when the members of
the council present all expressed disapproval of tbe Mongolians and a
readiness to do whatever could be
done to favor the local white laundry. The subject was introduced by
Aid. Douglas whose remarks in connection with it showed that he has
been jealously guarding It in order
that he might have all the kudos
that were to come from its introduction. He seemed to be afraid that
some cider might go elsewhere and
was prepared to lead in this instance
rather than play the role of corroborating the statements of his prototype, Aid. Newton.
Aid. Douglas raised a complaint
that the Chinamen were going about
gathering clothes on Sunday. This
interfered with the Pioneer laundry,
which employed white labor. He did
not think It was fair to white labor
and something should be done.
Mayor Manson suggested that
later, under the head of motions,
Aid. Douglas might bring In a motion
if he saw fit dealing with the subject
and then It would be properly before
the council.
The question of procedure being
introduced, Aid. Douglas excused
himself for not giving notice of mo
Hon in this matter because he was
afraid of some "frame up." "At one
time," he said, "1 couldn't get in on
this council. Things are looking different now."

George Kerr will preside and it is
urgently requested that all delegates
be on hand punctually. It is believed there will be at least six teams
entering and consequently there will
be a large number of games to be
played. One of the most important
items is the appointment of umpires
and care should he exercised to see
that they are well qualified lor the
position. Some little opposition has
been anounced with regard to the
signing up of 12 players leach team
being allowed that number), which,
it Is claimed, would work a hardship
on some of the teams, it is earnestly hoped that the game will be
kept strictly amateur.

The question was somewhat fully
discussed. It was pointed out that
while $5,000 was a large sum of
money to expend on an equipment
that was only temporary yet it seemed  necessary  to do  it.
Last evening many of the members
of the Presbyterian congregation gathered at the old church building on
(lie G. T. P. reserve to bid adieus
to the structure that had been associated with the arlist history of the
church in this city. The place was
raxed to the ground by friendly hands
as the first steps toward making way
for a more pretentious building.
Many of the ladies of the congregation were present to see the work
done. The new church will be put
up on the lots purchased on Fourth
avenue. It will be much more pre-
tentious than the old one but will
be a temporary church also.

It was finally decided to refer the
matter back to the water committee
with the ohjet of finding out if a

dams will be repaired and steps
taken to instal the additional plant
which may be necessary lo secure »

The public will be required to use
water just as sparingly as possible
during the dry weather so as not
to endanger the supply. There will
be steps taken also to cut off all

will be asked to co-operate In Ihis.
It was pointed onl in the latter connection that while the company die

Appreciation of General Nogi by William
Maxwell in Overseas
Interesting   Chapter  in   the.   History
of Hie Siege of Port Arthur
Is Recalled
General Nogl is a type of his country—a grim old warrior, silent, sombre passionate, This was my Impression when I first met him in the
trenches before Port Arthur, wriits
William .Maxwell in the Overseas
Mail. I bad come from General Ku-
roki's army after the battle of Sha-ho
and did not look for a cordial welcome. But. the grip of General Xogi's
hand and the message he gave me to
send to England reassured me, and
before the siege ended I found under
the coat of mail a profoundly sympathetic and  kindly nature.
Every line of his spare figure and
dark face, every hair of his grizzly
beard, stands for strength and energy
and resolute will. That is one side
of General Nogi's character, and it
is graven in fire and blood on the
forts of Port Arthur. There is another side. When General Xogi
grasps your hand and holds it fast
the stern warrior vanishes and you
are in the presence of a courtly soldier whose eye beams benevolence—
a frank cordial, human man, toward
whom you are instantly drawn as to
an  old  comrade.
On the night before the surrender
of Port Arthur the handful of British and American correspondents invited the members of General Xogi's
staff to celebrate the new year. We
dined in a cavern dug out of the side
of a hill, over which rolled the thunder of the guns, and were drinking
each   other's  health   when   my  Jap-
States in  Italy and  have their testimony taken in their own houses.
Counsel for the defence at once
objected, saying that in 1S50 all ee-
i lesiastical privileges had been abolished, and that churchmen of whatever rank were to be treated exactly
as ordinary citizens, and dented that
cardinals had the right to call themselves officials of the Italian state.
He added that cardinals were not
even among the number of those distinguished citizens from whose ranks
senators of the kingdom may he
chosen, and though in documents preparing the Great  Law of Guarantee,
eral character will prove wholly justified.
"And in thus finding work for our
applicants, we pledge ourselves only
to send them to posts we have investigated and can guarantee reliable
and offering adequate remuneration."
The officers of the British Columbia branch are: President, Mrs. William .Murray; first vice president,
Mrs. H. G. Ross; second vice president, Mrs. Wade; committee, Mrs.

the Church and State in Italy, the
cardinals were spoken of as equivalent to princes, in the documents
itself there were no words attributing this title to them, nor. indded,
had the Law of Guarantee ever been
accepted by the Papacy.
Even the famous decree of 1S68,
which gave the cardinals precedence
over the Knights of the Order of the
Annunzlata, did not mention cardinals among the great officials of State,
and in any case this decree simply
regulated ceremonial, and had nothing to do with judicial procedure.
The defendant Verdesi's advocate
reminded the court that if the cardinals were treated as great officials
of State in this case it deprived the
accused of two legal guarantees of
hearing what was said ahout him and
of contradicting the evidence if he
wished, which he could not do, not
being  present at  the examination.
Counsel for the crown, in reply,
recalled that in 1879 General Ca-
drona, who commanded the soldiers
who took Rome, ordered the troops
to render the same honors to cardinals as though they were princes of
the blood, and cited several precedents for cardinals having been considered great officials of the State
by the tribunals of Rome. After
other advocates had argued on both
sides, the court retired for nearly
two  hours  in  order to  consider the

Murray; secretary, Miss Dorothy Davis; assistant secretary Miss Elsie

All night long the hills shook with
the explosions of ammunition, for
the Russians were destroying their
ships and stores, and the sky was
aflame. At dawn I found General
Nogi marshalling his war-worn soldiers and bis heavy guns, and sending them north to join the
the plain of Mukden.
The   True'   Hen
dent of the court read a long judgment, the gist of which was that it
was not necessary to be a public
official in order to enjoy the prerogatives of that position, and that
he considered that the decree of 1868
might be taken as an interpretation
of the law, and that, therefore, he
ordered that the evidence of Cardinals Respighi and Martinellt should be
heard in their own homes without
the presence of the other parties to
the suit.

William  Ross  Makes   Statement
as to Alleged Unfair
Shows    That    There    Was
Foundation for the Attacks
Apropos  the recent  utterances  ot
the  Victoria  Times to  the  business
enterpries of the Fort Fraser Land
Company, i. connection with which
there appears to have been built  up
an  edifice of erroneous  conclusions
upon a foundation of unreal "facts,"
there are one or two a'legatiotis advanced  concerning  which   the  Times
is very much at sea, says the Col-
onist.     One  of  these  statements   is
to   the  effect   that   the   government,
accepted applications for lands subsequently acquired by tbe Fort Fraser'
Land  Company  as  for  second  class
lands, and  ai   the  second  clas  lands'
price,  these  lands  being  afterwards,
offered  for sale  as  first  class,  and
so described in the company's prospectus.
In reply to this statement the minister of lands, lion. Wiliani R. Ross,
on being interviewed by the Colonist, I
said that "all government lands when
sold, as in these instances, are disposed of subject to classification, the
government as a rule being una hie
to ascertain when applications are'
received how much of the land applied for is second class and leeewl
much first class. This cannot be elee-
termined until surveys are properly
completed, and therefore the prices
cannot be fixed as a general tiling
when dealing with the applications.!
The lands in which tlie Fort Fraser
Land Company appears to be concerned have not as yet been Burveyed,
with the exception of one sumII
piece, and all must therefore be guess
work as to the price which will he.
demanded for them until such surveys are made.
"Neither of the orders in council
referred to hy the Times affeeie.el
tbe purchase price of the lands in
question. The first order in council,
approved April 3, 1911, recited 'lhat
these prices shall apply to all lands
with respect to wnich the application
to purchase is given favorable consideration after the date of the approval of this minute,' and as tbe
purchasers of all the parcels in question were given favorable consideration long prior to April 3, 1911. Il
Is obvious that they could not be
held to be governed by the order in
council in question. As the lands
were not affected by this order in
council they could not have been
affected by the subsequent order in
council of May 11, 1911, because
this order in council was a modification of the first one, and applied
only to lands which were Included in
the first one."
Baseless  Accusation
The Times has also said that "ii
has been suggested to us that the
first payment of fifty cents per acre
was made by cheques, and that these,
cheques had never been presented
to the respective banks for payment."
Referring to this, Hon. Mr. Ross
pointed out that the department over
which he presides "does not handle
the moneys received with land applications. These moneys are paid into
the government agents in the districts, who issue their receipts in
duplicate, the purchaser receiving
one, and its duplicate being transmitted to the department with the
agent's certificate that the money
has been paid."
Everyone who knows Governmenl
Agents Allison and Walker, through
whom these particular transactions
were made, will agree with the minister that "such a suggestion is preposterous."
As a matter of record, the payments referred to in connection with
these lands now being dealt in by
the Fort Fraser Land Company were
made in various amounts and at various times between February 25 and
October  12,  1910.
"We have no officia' knowledge
of the Fort Fraser Land Company,"
added Hon. Mr. Ross, nor has the
department sold an acre of land to
this company or to any applicant for
whom the company, from the departmental records, appears to be acting
as agent. The lands designated as
the lands which the Fort Fraser Land
Company is said to be seeking to
acquire are situated in various portions of the province, applied for by
various Individuals, and staked by
various agents. It would appear that
if this company is acquiring any
lands in the province it Is acquiring
the rights of individual stakers.
"With reference to the statement
that 'about a year ago the government put a reserve on all lands In
that  district  so that  no  such  lands
ceinld now be acquired at that price,'
I have to say that so far as the reserve is concerned It only extends
en tlie noith shoie of Ootsa lake, In
the vicinity of which these lands lie,
and as far as our maps and departmental information go, there are
iliousands of acres of land in that
I in mediate vicinity which are still
unreserved and open to purchase or
General Misapprehension.
There appears to be a very genera I misapprehension, the minister!
aeleli'd, as to crown land prices in e
British Columbia, tlie impression j
seeming to prevail that there werej
fixed prices of $2.50 and $5 per
acre for second and first, class lands
respectively. As a matter of fact, I

As will appear in another column
of this issue the city of Vancouver
is determined that there shall be
direct connection given at once by
rail between that place and the Peace
River country. The move has been
carried to the extent of a league being formed to push the idea along
and to endeavor to interest othei
places like Victoria and New Westminster in the movement.
The object of the movement is a
simple one. It is to establish the
trade from all the northern interior
of this province in the city of Vancouver during the formative period
of Prince Rupert's business life. It
is an attempt to divert from this
city trade that ought to flow this
way. The time is coming when the
connection asked for will be given,
but there is no necessity for any
particular rush in that matter. Of
far more importance to the northern
part of the province and in the interests of the fullest development of tho
whole of Britisii Columbia is the completion of the fullest connection with
Prince Rupert of as wide an area
of this northern part of the province as possible.
The district which the city of Vancouver      seeks     to     bring     within
the scope of its influence is the natural   field   for  trade  with   this  city
as soon as the G. T. P. is completed
and   there  are other  necessary connecting   avenues   of   transportation
opened up to connect with the line.
The very fact that there is a trade
opening up in that part of the country today is due to the fact that the
G. T. P. is under construction.    Had
care been taken when the transcontinental was Initiated that construction
should have begun from  the Pacific
at   '.he same  time that,  it  was com.
menced in  the east, all the territory
of   which   Vancouver   now   seeks   to
secure  the  trade,  would  have  been
doing   business  with   this  city.
The Dominion Government, however, did not see fit to so provide
and in consequence Prince Itupert is
obliged to wait until the line is completed before coming into the full
measure of its trade possibilties even
in a local sense.
This Is not the fault of the G. T. P.,
which must look to its own interests
and so avoid to as large an extent as
possible the costly construction from
the westward.
If, however, the Peace River dis-
tricts and the areas within easy reach
• of the line of the G. T. P. are to
be benefitted to the fullest extent
ii can be afforded in the best way
le. an expedition of the means of
connecting them up with the port of
Prince Rupert, All that territory
will find its natural market and outlet for Its product through Prince
Ruperl. To cul off ihis port from tho
trade that naturally belongs to it in
iho formative days of the city would
be anything bul just to this place.
There will assuredly be connection
gl' .'ii Vancouver with this northern
pari but that must come after the
through line to Prince Rupert has
been completed. Had the G. T. P.
looked only to the Immediate future
in the mailer of trade there can be
little doubl that the company would
have bulll at once to Vancouver bo-
tore completing the line to Prince
Rupert. The policy was different,
however, The company is interested
in Beelng the. real terminus built up
and there were either influences at
work in the same direction, all having   for  their  end   the   development
of  an   important   commercial   centre
Connection with Vancouver with
the large business places already in
operation there could not kill Prince
Rupert, but it would have the effect
of disturbing the prospective trade of
this place at a time when it would
he troublesome to the men who might
venture into business in the city.
The Peace River district is within
the zone of influence of Prince Rupert and the trade of that section
of the country will assuredly come
this way. Much shorter collections
can be given every part of the district with this city than can ever
he established between that country
and the southern cities of the province. As times goes on there will
he connections with the south and
the business interests of Prince Rupert will have to enter into competition. There is nothing to fear under the conditions when that time
A later announcement concerning
the plans of the Vancouver committee is contained in the following:
"In an effort to arouse interest in
regard to the proposed direct railway line from Vancouver to the Peace
River country, Dr. E. S. Rowe, who
was appointed secretary of the Peace
River Pacific. League a few nights
ago, will arrange meetings in Victoria of the leading ibtisiness men of
the Capital at the end of the present
"The following committee, which
was appointed by the league, will
also go to Victoria for the same purpose as Dr. Rowe: Messrs. C. H.
Macaulay, Robert Kelly, W. H. Malkin, A. G. McCandless and F. Carter-
Cotton, M. P. P. Meetings will also
be arranged in North Vancouver, New
Westminster and other points."
There is no doubt that the places
mentioned will enter into the scheme
with very hearty accord. Their self-
interests would ditcate such a course.
Selfish feelings are prompting the
cities of the south, especially tbe city
of Vancouver, which is more essentially commercial than the others, to
fight the young giant of the north
before it develops its strength. Nothing could be more complimentary to
this city than the course which is
being pursued. To the outsider it
cannot help appealing as the best
proof that the city of Prince Rupert
is a coming rival in a commercial
sense of Vancouver. The latter city
fully recognizes this and also recognizes that with all tne advantages
which this northern centre possesses
in the way of the best transcontinental roadbed on the continent, the best
harbor on the coast, freedom from
fogs which have played so much mischief with the southern ports' Interests, rich agricultural and horticultural lands within easy reach of
the place all along the route of the
railway and the richest mining country i.i British Columbia suroundiiig
the city and directly tributary to it,
there is nothing that can prevent the
development of an immense centre
here which will hold its own against
all comers when the lines of communication are completed. It is not
that the citizens of Prince Rupert
are afraid of competition that many
come after the place is in a position
to handle trade. There is no question as to what will be the result
then, it would be taking an unfair
advantage however of the city were
the trade that is being built up be-
cause of the enterprise of which
Prince Rupert, is a part thrust into
the hands of others during the days
when the whole is in the chrysalis

VANCOUVER—That Vancouver is
to have a new department store
building that will cost in the neighborhood of $1,500,000, is the announcement made by Herbert E. Bur-
bidge, store commissioner for . the
Hudson's Bay Company, when seen
the other dav at the Hotel Vancouver, where he is registered with Mrs
Burbidge, having arrived from Montreal on Sunday.
"Vancouver has gone ahead so fast
that the Hudson's Bay Company must
not alone keep pace with the city's
marvelous growth, hut if anything,
be prepared for further progress for
some years lo come,' 'said Mr. Burbidge in discussing his company's
plans. "The new store will occupy
half of the block bdunded by Granville, Georgia, Dunsmuir and Seye-
mour streets, which site includes the
present large space occupied by the
Hudson's Bay store. Wo will begin
building operations at the earliest
possible moment upon the fifty foot
lot behind the present, store. Upon
completion of the building on this
little plot, the business will be transferred to the new quarters and thus
the commerce of our local branch
will proceed without interruption.
"But the Hudson's Bay Company's
building operations will not be restricted alone to Vancouver, for we
have purchased a million dollars'
worth of land in Winnipeg, on Portage avenue. Arrangements have also
been completed for the building of a
$50,000 department store at Vernon.
We shall continue to develop our
I business in British Columbia, and
I shall pay more and more attention
to tlie outlying districts, as railroad
development continues."

VANCOUVER "In pursuance of
the. rights and privileges granted to
us hy franchise, dated April 23, 1901,
we are now ready lo commence work
on a system of mains for ihe distribution of electrical energy within the
limits of the eity of Vancouver,"
This was the statement In a letter
from    the'    Western   Canada   Power
Company, which was read to the
board of works at its meeting yesterday. Wm. McNeil, representing
the company, submitted plans for the
approval of the council, showing on
what streets and alleyways the company proposed to lay underground
enables and to string overhead wires
conveying electrical energy. "The
energy will be generated by two 13,-
000 horsepower turbines," says the
communication, "and will he conveyed from our plants at Stave Falls
over a transmission line supported
by steel towers to the receiving station which has just been built at
D. L. 121 Burnaby. At this station
the pressure will then be reduced
to 10,000 volts and then the electrical energy will be conveyed on
a wooden pole line following the
route of the Great Northern Railway
to the easterly limits of the city.
From the city limits we propose to
convey the energy at 13,000 volts
upon wooden pole lines to approximately APrlnce Edward avenue and
Fifth avenue, and then to the corner of Gore avenue and Cordova
street east, at which place we propose to buld two substation in which
the electrical energy will be transformed from 13,000 to 2,300 volts."
It is explained that to convey such
a heavy voltage by overhead wires
would be a serious menace to tlie
citizens, so the company proposes
to use underground mains with steel
armored cables laid in trenches. That
this  system   has   stood   the   test  of

and amplification of existing ones,
$8,900,0000 gold; Patagonian railway, $16,700,000 gold; railway from

government of Japan.
Following the reports brought
from China Mr. Stanley Dollar, who
is in charge of the head office of
the Dollar line at San Francisco in
the absence of his father in China,
has been interviewed and lie states
that the negotiations are now under
way and expected to be completed
shortly for the transfer of the four
vessels to China, 'the change will
be made in September. Tlie Dollar
line has now a contract with the
Western Steel Corporation to carry
iron from Hankow to this coast and
has landed several cargoes at Iron-
dale. The proposed Chinese line is
to be financed by a large company
with capital of $11,000 000, recently
organized by the joint chambers of
commerce of many important Chinese cities.
It has been well known for years
thai the shipping trade at the port
of Buenos Ayres has increased so
rapidly that the accommodations for
loading and discharging vessels have
been inadequate and that there has
been a great longest ion of steamers
at the docks. In consequence, vessels have been so long delayed in
discharging and loading that on two
occasions a question on the subject
was aske'd in the British House of
The Argentine authorities have
now begun to move in tlie matter.
About the onil of 1909 the government received plans and tenders from
nine different firms for the construction of the necessary works in enlarging tlie port, bul, after Studying
there  for  nol   less   Mian   ten   months,
the executive power discovered that
all the projects and tenders were' unacceptable, owing to ils having in
asking estimates tried to effect in a
single act for two operations, which
ought to have been kept rigorously
apart—namely, the competition for
the plans and the tenders for the construction  of the  works.
The plans were revised and examined by the executive power and the
, government has just accepted the
proposal of a London firm for the
construction of the new port at a
cost of $24,169,241.35 gold.
The works are to begin within
six months of the date of signing
the contract and are to be completed
within five years under penalty for
deiay of $20,000 gold per month.
The works are to be constructed In
such a manner that there will be a
depth of water sufficient in the channels and docks for the entrance of
vessels drawing 30 feet; but the executive power is authorized to reserve in the contract the right to
reduce the depth tor the entrance
of vessels drawing only 27 feet.    The
Reports from England announce
the arrival of the British ship
Blytheswood at Queenstown from Tacoma with grain. She reached the
Irish port on June 19, after having
made the passage in 158 days which
is the slowest time made by any of
the grain carriers which left the
Sound this year. The Blytheswood
has always been looked upon as a
smart sailer but as she was spoken
in the South Pacific north of Cape
Horn 81 days out it was' believed
she must have encountered some
heavy weather in making the run
down the coast.
A great deal of apprehension was
felt in shipping circles along the
coast as to her safety, due to tha
appaprently prolonged pasage, as it
was figured that she was 175 days
out on Thursday last. Some supported the theory that she must have
foundered, while others felt certain
that she would turn up soon. The
despatches received, however, dispel
all mystery, while the Blytheswood
still takes the honor of being the
slowest ship of the fleet.
On January 12 the Blytheswood
passed out from the Sound, commencing her long trip. She left Tacoma
a week earlier than this, however,
but owing to the heavy gale which
was raging outside had to lie in
Neah Bay seven days before she was
able to get clear of Flattery. Within a few hours of the British ship a
French sailing vessel cleared and
shipping men were looking for a tight
race between the two craft. The
French vessel won by nearly a month,
having escaped all rough weather and
finished a particu arly fast passage
from the Sound to England.
With the reporting of the Blytheswood, all of the 1911 grain fleet of
Puget Sound have been accounted
for. Some of the sailers made ex-
eeedingly fast trips, which stand as
records for the distance.

The ship has a cargo capacity of
450 tons, in addition to her bunkers, and altogether it is expected
she will be a very convenient and
comfortable ship, well adapted for
the purpose for which she is intended. It is expected she will arrive
on the coast some time the latter
part of July, and will as soon as
possible thereafter be placed in commission on the Prince Rupert-Queen
Charlotte Islands route, relieving the
Prince Albert for other purposes.
The new steamer Prince John of

Prince Rupert-Queen Charlotte Islands route, is a vessel 185 feet long,
30 feet beam and 13 feet 3 inches
moulded depth, built of steel and
class 100 Al with a star at. Lloyds.
She has seven watertight bulkheads
with double bottom, affording ample
ballast and fresh water storage, large
bunkers, two multi-tubular Scotch
boilers, triple expansion engines, an
extremely moderate fuel consumption. The vessel had ben modeled
to stand the heaviest weather, and
is a remarkable sea boat,
In addition to a large and well
arranged steerage accommodation for
150, she has good first class accommodation; a very neat and comfortable smoking room done in fumed
oak with leather upholstery, and buffet in connection. This is accessible
only from first class quarters. The
dining, seating 44, is done in mahogany with crimson upholstery and
ilrapings, and it situated on tlie shelter deck, and attached lo it is a large
pantry and galley, conveniently laid
out and fitted with all modern equipment necessary to a first, class Bervlce. The chief steward's officers
and men's washrooms are located also
on this deck.
The dining room is readied by a
mahogany Btairway leading from th
lounge on the shade deck into a well
proportioned and airy vestibule, also
mahogany paneled and decorated.
The principal stateroom accommodation is situated on the shelter deck,

His arrival in any part of British
Columbia heing usually considered a
forerunner of an impending influx
of Britisii capital, R. M. Bauer,
prominent London financier, was a
most important guest in Vancouver
recently. Mr. Bauer, whose interests in this province are mentioned
in seven figures, has come to Vancouver to look over his properties
and partly to investigate for himself
certain mining and land propositions
which have been passed upon favorably by his agents during the past
few months. Mineral wealth has a
particular fascination for Mr. Bauer,
and while he is very reticent in discussing his immediate plans along
ihese lines, he permitted it to be
gleaned from his conversation that
Britisii Columbia will soon see a
heavy invasion of British capital for
the development of ils mining interests, particularly the gold prospects
in the north. "Beyond the fact that
British Columbia has more than a
passing interest to me, on account
of my large financial connections
wiih various interests, and the admission that I am here to look overj
certain properties which have been i
favorably reported upon by my
agents, 1 cannot speak more defintely
at this time," said .Mr. Bauer in discussing the object of his visit. "Only
a blind man could pass over British
Columbia as the most promising
field for Investment at present,"
said lie.

Nothing in baseba'l probably gives
rise to more argument among its
faithful followers than the problem
that arises when two or three pitchers are used by one team in a game
and it is necessary to determine which
one is to be given credit for a victory or to be charged with defeat. .
It is not strange that the laymen
does noi find this as easy as an open
book. Good authorities have differed and still differ on the question.
But their differences are slight when
compared to the wide variance of belief among the patrons of the game
regarding  tlie matter.
Not long ago a party of fans, returning from a ba'l game, contained
one of those talkative guys who know
everything there is to know about
baseball and represent themselves to
be bosom friends with every star
performer in the major leagues.
Two pitchers had been used by the
winning team and somebody in the
party asked which one got credit for
the game. Mr, Wise promptly informed the carload of patrons that
Jones won the game. He went on
to explain that when Smith was taken
out in the sixth inning the score was
4 to 2 in favor of his team and that
he would have been given the victory
hut for the fact that the opposing
team made two runs in the nintl
inning, the final score being 6 to 4,
That made Jones the winning
pitcher. i
, "You see," he explained, "it all depends on whether thi score is tied or
not. Smith had the game won when
he left it, but the other team made
enough runs to tie the score in the
ninth. So that made Jones the winner."
That was not quite clear to one
member of the party, who thought
the last pitcher in the game always
got credit for a victory or a defeat.
Still another argued that so and so,
who knew Garry Herrmann through
being an Elk, had told him that the
pitcher who worked the greater number of innings always was given the
victory or defeat.
These are only a few of the erroneous ideas on the subject in circulation throughout fandom, and all of
the mentioned are about equally far
from the facts.
Not so much importance attaches
to the question of the winning and
losing pitcher now as in former
years, because in the major leagues
a new system has been evolved for
ascertaining the relative standing of
the pitchers, and in this system the
percentage of games won and lost
cuts no figure, although the formality of awarding a victory or a defeat
still is maintained in some form or
other. By the new system, which
cannot he gone into in detail at this
time, the effectiveness of the pitchers throughout a season is the basis
of ranking without regard to whether
th pitcher is on a winning or losing
But the experienced rooter still
clings to his belief that the pitcher
who comes through a season with
the greatest number of victories to
his credit is the best slab man in
his league. For the aforesaid E. R.
some light may he thrown on the
problem by stating the method by
which the secretaries of the two major leagues used to determine the
winning or losing pitcher in cases
where more than one pitched on a
In general, a pitcher who goes into
a game with the score in favor of
his opponents cannot lose that game,
but may win it; a pitcher who goes
into a game with the score tied and
no one on bases wins or loses that
game according to the final result;
a pitcher who takes another's place
with the score in favor of ills own
team usually Is given credit for the
victory or defeat as the case may be,
the exceptions being few; a pitcher
who is taken out of a game with the
score against him loses it if his team
eventually is beaten and does not
win It if his team wins out.
Perhaps a few concrete Illustrations will help. Mathewson starts
for the Giants, who run up a score
of 12 to 1 in three or four Innings,
and McGraw puts Maquard on the
slab to save the big star. If the
Giants win that game Mathewson
gets It; if they lose it is charged to
Marquard. But if Mathewson started
and was taken out because the opposing team was beginning to him or
because he lost, control then Marquard would get credit for a victory or would be charged with a
Ruelbach, for instance, pitches
into the last half of the ninth Inning
with the score (1 to 8 In his favor.
Then he loses eontrol and the bases
are filled with one out. Brown goes
on and retires two men and the side
without letting in more than one or
two of the men on bases. The victory goes to Brown. If the other
team hits Brown hard enough to win
the game the defeat is charged to
him. However, if the score had been
6 to 4 and the bases full when Brown
went in, he could get credit for winning the gmae, but, if the three men
who were on bases when Reulbach
retired had eventually scored, making the final score 7 to 6, then Reulbach would be charged with the defeat.
Lange starts pitching for the
White Sox and the other team scores
one run off him in five innings.
Walsh then takes his place after
somebody has batted for Lange.
Walsh cannot lose that game, because a defeat will be charged to |
Lange, but if the White Sox win out
the victory will go to Walsh. These
are only a few of the puzzles that
arise, but may convey the idea.
One situation never has been satisfactorily solved and that is the case
where a pitcher is taken out to let
a substitute hit for him with the
score 3 to 1 against him, for instance, in that inning his team
makes a bunch of runs so that when
the substitute pitcher goes to the
slab in the next inning the score is
5 to 3 In his favor. There is a good
argument for either pitcher sometimes in such cases and often the
best of opinions differ.
Summing it all up, there is no hard
and fast rule that will cover all cases.
Each game is considered hy itself and
in general victory or defeat is recorded to the pitcher responsible for it
as nearly as human fallibility and
the luck of baseball permits.

A trip through Europe, a tour taking in the principal cities and resorts
of the Old World, is the reward held
out to the amateur lacrosse team that
wins the 1911 British Columbia
Bror Florman, a Swedish athlete
at one time, who now is retired and
is living in Vancouver, was in Victoria the other day to see the Terminal City and Island twelves battle
in one of the matches of the series
that will decide the issue. It is
he who will decide arangements that
will result in an excursion across
tbe Atlantic for either the webbed
stick representatives of Victoria,
Vancouver or New Westminster.
With the western team be will take
the best eastern aggregation. The
two have been entered through his
efforts and under his auspices in the
Olympic sports of 1912, which are to
take place in Stockholm, Sweden.
No more enthusiastic admirer of
the Canadian national game could be
imagined than Mr. Florman. He has
been in communication with the committee of management of the forthcoming Olympic games for some
months with respect to the idea of
giving exhibitions of lacrosse on the
other side. They have endorsed his
proposal in toto. He believes that
the tour will prove one of the finest
means of advertising the Dominion
that has ever been promulgated and
is confident that it will bea success
financially and in every other respect.
Tbe winners of the British Co
lumbla and eastern amateur leagues
will leave next May, it being the
intention that they shall appeas in
a series of exhibitions before going
to Sweden. The tour, as roughly
mapped out bf its enterprising promoters up to date, is as follows:
London, Paris, Bordeaux, San Sebastian, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Florence, Mayence, Berlin, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Christiana. From the latter point the Canadians will go to
Stockholm, where they will arrive
sometime during the first or second
week In July. There Olympic matches
are scheduled for the 23d and 25th
of that month. The sports are fixed
for the period between the 23d to
the 81st.
A great Canadian—he was in
reality an Imperial figure—passes
from public service with the retirement of Lord Strathcona. He has announced that with advancing years
and at the advice of his physician
he must retire from the position he
has held as Canadian High Commissioner in London. From a poor Scottish boy earning his living as a servant of the Hudson's Bay Company on
the remote Labrador coast, Donald
A. Smith rose to membership in the
Canadian parliament, to a commending place in the financial world, and
in his ripe but wonderfully useful
old age he has been Canadian High
Commissioner in London and a member of the British Peerage.
It would require a volume to enumerate the many spheres of activity
and avenues of public service of this
wonderful citizen of the Empire. In
the quelling of the first Riel rebellion alone he scored for the government by the very confidence the Indians reposed in him. He was a
pioneer builder of the western empire, and one of the founders of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. In 1896
just at the close of his brief career
in politics, he was a delegate to try
and settle the Manitoba school question, and soon thereafter became
High Commissioner. Montreal knows
hism as her leading financier for
years, and president of the Bank of
Montreal. In Britain he has championed the cause of Canada with unflagging enthusiasm, and In the highest  circles.
Lord Strathcona has ever been liberal with his wealth, and hundreds
of deserving institutions can testify
to his generosity. That old age would
sometime compel his retirement was
of course inevitable, for he is now
91, but Canadians will wish him still
years of leisure in which to enjoy
his honors and his friendships in the
old  world  and  in  the new.

General Diaz, now in Spain, said
the friendly demonstrations at Spanish ports had comforted hi.n greatly
in his bitter exile. He denied statements published in the Spanish papers that the United States had been
responsible for the revolutionary
movement in Mexico. Asked if he
had intended taking up his residence
in  Spain, the general said:
"It is q»ite possible that after a
few months' rest I shall turn my
steps to the peninsula. I speak only
Spanish and 1 am too old to begin
the study of foreign languages. However, nothing has yet been decided
upon. I shall make up my mind in
Paris, where I shall go direct from
One of the members of General
Diaz's suite said that the principal
reason for the visit to Paris was to
consult a specialist with reference to
the abscess from which General Diaz
is  still   suffering.
General Diaz was somewhat reluctant to touch upon Mexico, saying that he wished to keep recent
events from his thoughts as much as
possible. Finally )le decided to make
a  statement.
"I abandoned power," he said,
"when I became convinced that
nothing but war for at least a year
would put down the revolution. I
wished to prevent the spilling of the
blood of the children of my country
In the fratricidal struggle, and above
all to avoid the possibility of an
International conflict or even representations from foreign powers. I
wished to avoid the weakening of
the national credit and the dissatisfaction of foreigners residing in Mexico, who have contributed greatly to
the prosperity of the nation and who
have merited the consideration of my
country by their work.
■My desire was to safeguard both
my own dignity and the dignity of
my charge without ever having beeu
guided by vulgar sentiment or petty
pride, and certainly I did not bring
about this strife, as some seem to
believe, to keep myself in power.
I have sacrificed myself and given
up the struggle convinced that I am
giving better proof of my abnegation and devotion to my country by
abandoning the reins of government
and transmitting them to others.
"I have broken all the bonds which
hold me to Mexico, and even if I
were asked I would not return to
take part in the politics of the country. Only some international difficulty necessitating a supreme effort
on the part of all Mexicans in a close
union could make me aljer my decision, but if such an eventuality
arose nothing could stop me from
going to the end of my life as in
the first years of manhood—rifle
in hand."
Here the general stopped and remained thoughtful for an instant.
Then he excused himself from answering further questions, merely
adding  that  he  now    awaited    any

Part Which Gold Plays in the Coinage
of the North and How it
is Handled.
Market for the Yellow Metal Exists
—How Disposition Is Made of
the Production
Bankers and financiers in all parts
of the globe, says the Montreal
Chronicle, evince interest in the disposition of the consignments of gold,
the product of the Transvaal mines,
which are offered for sale in the' London market on Monday each week.
Interest hinges on tlie question
whether the bank of England will
get this gold. Often there Is competition and bids will he entered for
all or part of the gold, on behalf of
parties representing the Bank of
France, the Bank of Germany or another of the great European state
banks, and on occasions New York
will make strong bids and succeed
In bringing the yellow metal to this
side of the Atlantic. It will be interesting to trace the progress of
this gold from the mines to its market. It Is, of course, raised from
the earth through the shafts of the
various mining companies operating
on the Rand. These companies dispose of their output regularly to the
bankers in South Africa. The banks
there buy the gold from their customers, the responsible mining companies. They pay for it through
crediting the purchase money to the
account of the mines. In settling,
the price which they wil pay they
are obliged to take account of the
cost of transmitting the metal to
London — on which steamship
charges, Insurance and interest all
Then, on regular days each week,
the gold is consigned to London. The
South African banks get from the
steamship companies bills of lading
covering the shipments. These bills
of lading they transmit to their London agents. Most of the South African banking Institutions are English,
and have their head offices In London. The hanks which forward the
gold are aware that they will get for
it in London at least 77 shillings and
!l pence per ounce. For the law
requires the Bank of England to pay
that price for all gold of standard
fineness presented lo it.
There is a posslbllty that the gold
may sell for a higher price. If there
is competition for it other parties
may bid higher and if the Bank of
England wishes to secure it, the bank
will meet the higher bids. At these
weekly sales it is the unwritten law
that al whatever price is fixed upon
for   the  gold   the   Bank   of  England
week or two waiting; they say, perhaps, "We are very busy, we cannot
deliver It." No; there is very little
ever goes to the mint.
In the interview Lord Swaythling,
in regard to checking an export demand for gold through paying out
sovereigns which, while being of the
legal minimum weight, were yet not
full weight pieces. He says: "They
sift out the minimum legal weight
of the sovereigns and heap th m up
for the exporters. If they give us
full weight sovereigns we would be
very glad to get them, but they will
not. We now could send gold to
France if we could get full weight
sovereigns, but we cannot get them.
Formerly they did not do those
Upon the commissioners asking
him, ' Where are the full weight sovereigns?" lie replied: "Oh, they keep
them for Inferior purposes. If Liverpool and Manchester banks want
sovereigns they get full weight, because freighmt is against us sending
them from the north to the continent. In any of the north country
places you have the most beautiful,
bright . heavy sovereigns which we
would like to see in London, but we
cannot get them."
Session  of  World's  Society Will  Be
Held in Toronto
in   1918
Two  Years'  Time China Expects
to  Stop  Growing
The International Geological Congress, made up of -the geological so-
e'ieties of the world, and which meets
every three years, held Its tenth session at Stockholm, Sweden, in 1910.
The next, or eleventh meeting, is to
be held at Toronto in July, 1913,
when it is expected not less than
2,000 geologists will attend.
To prepare for this important
event a meeting was called at the
instance of the directors of the Geological Survey of Canada, attended
by the Canadian geologists, mining
engineers, representatives of the universities, the government service, the
Royal Society and the Canadian Mining Institute.
Dr. F. D. Adams, professor of
geology of McGill College, Montreal,
was se>ected as president, and R. W.
Brock, director of the Geological
Survey, secretary-treasurer, and an
executive committe consisting of the
two previously named gentlemen, A.
P. Coleman, J. B. Tyrrell, W. G. Miller, O. E. LeRoy, W. Mclnnes, T.
Denis, W. A. Parks and G. G. S.
Lindsey was chosen. They have the
power to add to their number, and
this will be one of the principal matters of business at the next meeting
of the committee.
At the first meeting of the executive  committee   it   was  decided  that
three series of ecurxsion should be
shall have the say whether it willjheld, one before the session in Tor
take the metal at thai price. Thus,
suppose an outside party bid 77 shillings and 10 peine for the gold, the
Bank of England would he given the
chance to take it at that price and
if it refused the eel her bidder would
get it.
For such gold as it purchases the
Bank of England ineTeases its liability accordingly. The gold will be
purchased either by means or an increase of its deposits or an increase
of its note issues. Thus, suppose we
read that the Bank of England secured $3,000,000 of new gold on a certain Monday. There will ensue an
Increase of that amount in ils liabilities. The effect would he to increase the proportion of reserve liability and that, always has a tendency
to increase the bank's capacity for
supplying funds to the money
Although the British mini is required by law to pay 7 7 shillings
1ei 1-^ pence per ounce for gold tendered to it none of this new gold
goes directly to the mint. When the
members of the United States monetary commission were withering information In Europe regarding the
various European banking and currency systems they had an interesting conversation or conference In
London with Lord Swaythling on the
matter of the Bunk of England's
operations In the gold market. The
commissioners asked him, "What Is
the actual value of gold coin?" The
answer was: "The full weight sovereign is 77s 10 i-2d; the hank buying at 77s 9d, or anything under
10   l-2d,  makes a  profit."
Does the bank ever pay in excess
of that amount?
Excess or 10  l-2d?    No.
Never.   I have known them to pay
lOd, but I do not  think they have
ever paid m
Why does gold ever sell at a price
less than lOd?
If there are no orders tor export
you must take it to the bank and
sell it for 9d.
Certainly. Could not you take it
to the mint and have it coined.
But you  lose  more Interest, as
explained.    They  may  keep  you
Sir Alexander Hosie's long expected report on the opium question in
China has finally been issued by the
foreign office in London. It confirms
the statement recently sent out from
Pekin that opium Is quickly disappearing from China and that in two
years there will be no trace of the
poppy in the Celestial Empire. In
this case, as was recently announced
in connection with the new Anglo-
Chinese treaty, the export from India will cease automatically within
the same period. Only a vast moral
revolution affecting over 300,000,000
people could have effected such a
wonderful result when It Is remembered that the opium crop was worth
?115,000,000   to  China.
Sir Alexander's report applies to
the five principal opium growing
provinces of China—Shansi, Shensi,
Kansu, Yunnan and Szechuan. The
most important of these is the last,
which used to produce about half
the crop of opium in China. Sir Alexander went over the provinces from
May to September, 1910, and from
January to April 1911. The results
of  his investigation are as follows:
In Shansi he found reason to believe that the poppy had ceased to be
cultivated for the last two years; in
Shensi he found that the official assertions in regard to the large percentage of diminuation of the crop
was highly exaggerated, although he
estimated that "it may be as much
as 30 per cent, but it is certainly
much under 50 per cent"; from what
he saw and heard In Kansu he has
come to the conclus'on that the reduction in the cultivation of opium
here amounts to something under 25
per cent; as the result of personal
investigation in Szechuan, which extends over 34 days' travel he writes
that he was "satisfied that poppy cultivation has been suppressed"; while,
"taking the province of Yunnan as
a whole," his belief is that the output for 1910-11 will not exceed 15,-
000 piculs, which shows that there
has been a reduction of 75 per cent
in the production of the drug in this
In former times the production of
opium in the province of Shansi
never exceeded 30,000 piculs (133 1-3
lbs. make one picul). But in the
provinces of Yunnan and Szechuan
the situation was different. The lat
ter for many years was the greatest
opium producer in China, the pro
duct ion exceeding 200,000 piculs a
year. In quantity Yunnan was see
ond in the market, but always first
in the quality of Its opium throughout the empire.

For tlie Swedish congress there
had been prepared a monograph on
tiie iron resources of the world, and
it was decided that the present congress should undertake a monograph
on the coal resources of the world.
The work of securing and preparing
the necessary material for this was
delegated to a special committee consisting of the president and secretary and Messrs. G. G. S. Lindsey
(convener), D. D. Dowling, James
McEvoy, Charles Fergie and Dr. Bon-

probably occupy two large quarto
volumes and will, be printed and

For the new Central prison at
Burnaby, for which I we've or more
tenders haa been received by the
government, the bids ranging from
$300,000 tu $480,000. As there appeared to have been no colluBlon
among the tenderers and each of the
tenders bearing the marks of bona
tides, it was ultimately decldede to
considerably modify the plans and
thereupon  invite   new   tenders.

Britisii Columbia Is Now Very Much
in tlie Public Eye Acording to
Official   Figures
The time of immigration appears
to be setting in strongly towards
British Columbia. Recent officia
figures show'that this province received the largest number of new
settlers during the past fiscal year.
The figures are: British Columbia,
54,689; Alberta, 44 794; Quebec,
42,914; Saskatchewan, 40,703; Manitoba, 34,653; and the maritime
provinces, 13,237. The tital immigration for the year was 311,084,
of which Great Britain contributed
123,013; the continent, 66,620; the
United States, 121 451. The immigration into Britisii Columbia, therefore, constitutes one-sixth of the total into Canada for 1910-11; This
indicates, however, but a small part
of British Columbia's Increase in
population, every year seeing the exodus from the northwest provinces
and eastern Canada to the Pacific
coast  increasing in  volume.
To tbe westward thek of pe'oiele
is added the flow of capital, which
assisting so materially in  opening
up the land and promoting industrial
and commercial development. The
citizens of this province with its rich
natural resources and many advantages as a field for colonization can
rest confident that the new comers
will find tlie field of their opportun
ity a large and sure one here and
that nothing can check the continued
prosperity of the best part of Canada, where the essentials for substantial advancement are so happily
found co-existing. This is indeed
British Columbia's day.

"Rally around the Canadian coast
cities and boost for all you're
worth," seems to be the slogan of
the enthusiasts who are anxious to
see a direct railway line from Vancouver to the Peace River country,
6ays the News-Advertiser in reporting a meeting held in Vancouver. The
provincial governmenl will hi' asked
for financial aid, and the business
men of this city are launching a publicity campaign to forward the
project. At a meeting in the Vancouver Tourist Association's headquarters a few evenings ago it was
decided to seek the co-operation of
several nearby municipalities—New
Westminster, North Vancouver and
Victoria—with a view to making the
much-talked-of line a reality.
It was a committee appointed by
the business men which met recently
that laid down the plans last night
for the procuring of aid, financial
and otherwise. C. H. McCauley was
appointed permanent chairman, and
Dr. Rowe secretary. Hereafter the
title of tiie organization will be the
"Peace River Pacific League."
"We want everybody to boost, this
line, for it is for everybody's good,"
6aid   W.   H.   Malkin.        "The  Grand
Trunk   Pacific  Railway  has  already
extended from the east to the Tete
Jaune Cache.    It is, therefore, without    doubt,   that   the   eastern   merchants will have access to this country  soon.    The first  thing that we
should  do is to bring the transportation   question   into   prominence  on
the coast.    This is a serious proposition   for   coast   manufacturers."     It
■was  Mr.  Malkin's  idea that a campaign of educating the people to the
importance   of   communication   with
the  Peace River  country  should  be
launched.     "The   provincial   government should  be  impressed  with  the
necessity of this road," he said.    "It
seems absurd that we of the Pacific
coast, with our facilities to bring in
material, should have very little territory to which to ship there goods."
"The time is coming when the flutter   of  real  estate   shall  have  died
down," he went on.     "A line to the
territory by which we can ship our
goods  is  surely  then  of  paramount
Suggestions as to the route of the
proposed line were made by many
present. The consensus of opinion
was to the effect that the railway
should be built to Howe Sound,
Pemberton Meadows and then
through Fort George in an easterly
direction through British Columbia.
"The available country extends
through many millions of acres," said
Mr. McCauley, chairman. "These
will attract many settlers and Vancouver is the place where they should
get their supplies. This project
should get as much publicity as possible to arouse the interest of the
people. The provincial government
should be approached, for we should
get assistance. The other municipalities in this part of the province
should he brought into the fold. We
need their co-operation badly. We
are not tied to any particular scheme,
we just want at the present time,
public notice."
On the suggestion of Robert Kelly
a resolution was passed appointing
the secretary to approach the mayor
and board of trade in Victoria and
outline the plans. A number of
oilier business men from Vancouver
will accompany him. A grant will
be asked from the local council.
Ewing Buchan said that It would
be advisable for the league to divide
the work in regard to getting statis-
tlcs about the scheme so as to Indicate to the government that business
was meant. He thought experts on
questions of minerals, lumbering and
wheat growing should be engaged to
get data on the northern part of the
province. The delegation will go to
Victoria in a few days.

How the Summit of the Rockies is Passed
by the Railway Line on its
Western Route.
Short   Distance   From   Edmonton
Altitude Is Readied Almost as
Great   as   Highest  Point
There is a point on the Grand
Trunk Pacific, 36 miles west of Edson, that is only 145 feet lower than
the highest altitude reached by the
railway during its passage over the
mountains through the Yellowhead
Pass, says the Edmonton Capital.
This is at a place that has been
named Obed, situated on the height
of land between the McLeod and
Athabasca rivers. It is 86 miles east
of the summit of the rockies and a
singular feature of the approach to
the mountains by the G. T. P. is that
between this high point and the summit the road takes a dip of 304 feet,
reaching its lowest altitude at Fiddle Creek, nine miles past the entrance to Jasper Park. At Fiddle
Creek the road starts on the final
up-grade to the summit, which is
47 miles farther west. In this distance it has a grade of 549 feet, or
an average of 11.6 feet per mile
In tlie 17
Fitzhugh and the summit, however,
there is a rise of 238 feet, or an
average grade of 14 feet per mile.
Although Fitzhugh is so close to the
summit of the Yellowhead Pass it
is lower than the high point between
the Athabasca and McLeod rivers by
93 feet. Obed, the summit of the
grade between the two streams, is
3,559 feet above sea level. Fitzhugh
rises to a height of 3,466 feet. The
summit of the Yellowhead Pass is
3,704   feet.
Thus it will be seen that. Obed is
only 145 feet lower than the summit of the mountain pass. It would
be an easy gradient for the railway
over the mountains, if after reaching the height of land between the
McLeod and the Athabasca, if were
not necessary to descend into the
valley of the latter stream. Obed is
only a few miles from the shore of
the Athabasca river. From this point

the Chinamen on Sundays. He did
not think they should be allowed to
ilo this when others were not allowed
to do it.
Aid, Newton, while lie was not a
strict observer of the Sabbath, felt
that the Chinese should not be allowed lo interfere with the day to the
disadvantage of white labor.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that
while lie had no sympathy with Chinese whatever this motion would
only make Ihe council look foolish.
The chief of police had no authority,
he believed, to prevent this. The
matter had been gone into by the
council last year also.
His worship felt that every member of the council appreciated the
difficulty and would like to see the
Chinese prevented from carrying on
Lie work. He suggested, however,
that the best way would be to refer
this to the city solicitor to see what
could be done in  a legal way.
Aid. Douglas said the chief of police could soon prevent if he were
The city solicitor interjected that
the chief could do nothing of the
kind. The question had been before
the courts time and time again and
they always lost. Off hand, he could
not say if there might not be some
way found to meet the difficulty. He
would have to consider it.
Aid. Clayton objectd to interfering with personal liberty in connection with the Sabbath.
It was finally decided to refer this
to the city  solicitor.

The higher criticism and new
theology were themes of discussion
at the session of the Winnipeg Presbytery last week, and the meeting
at times took on an appearance of
excited and radical debate. The questions first arose after the annual report on Sunday school work and
young people's societies had been
Last year this branch of the work
"went down below zero," as the report stated, and this year very slight
improvement was recorded.
Rev. Dr. F. B. Duval, ex-moderator
of the general assembly, then rose
to his feet and said what we want
is a catechism of instruction that
cannot be impeached as far as human mind can understand the mystery of life. Progress of philosophy
and science has been such In the last
tliree centuries that many beliefs embodied in the Westminster catechism
are no longer tenable. What is necessary is that the central committee
of the Presbyterian Church and- of
leading minds of that denomination
be appointed by our general assembly to co-operate with a central committee of every other Protestant de-
uomination in drawing up a modern
catechism of instruction along positive lines that can be taken seriously
by every young man and young woman in their Sunday schools and young
people's soeieties without any mental
reservations. Unless that is done,
soon things will he getting worse instead of better. We. want a central
committee to define the fundamental
principles of our religion in common
defence. In many respects we are
still lingering in the dim religious
light that Wesley spoke about. There
should be no such thing as dim religious light, for the light on our
religion should be brightly burning
for all to see.
Rev. Dr. Farquharson then arose
and took an opposite course in the
debate to Dr. Duval. There was no
doubt, he said that the progress in
science and philosophy had done a
great deal to shake some brandies
of their faith, but he thought that
the Westminster catechism was good
enough for the Presbyterian Church
at present.
Another member of the Presbytery-
said that the religion had almost
disappeared from the young people's
societies, and nothing remained but
sport  and  athletics.

Strawberry Culture
Here is a method of raising strawberries which the Washington farmer practises with great success, ac-
Cordlng to G. S. Henderson, the pure
food Inspector, who was In the city
last. Sunday, states the Revelstoke
Mall-Herald: In the spring he covers
the ground with a thick layer of
dean straw. This prevents the berries coming In contact with the
ground, nnd keeps them clean. After the crop has been harvested, he
cuts the plants off close to the
ground with a scythe, and when the
tops are thoroughly dry he burns
them, together with the straw. By
following this method of cultivation
he harvests an immense crop of berries each year, and the necessity of
replanting every three or four years
Is obviated, as the p'ants treated In
this manner wIM produce good cropB
for an indefinite number of years.

If there Is any citizen of Prince

er, Frank Mobley, and have his name
placed on the list. With all due
regard to the good Intentions of those
who are engaged In the work of cen-
fromsus taking, It Is quite possible
that many have been missed. In a
city such as Prince Rupert, where
many of the residents are roomers or
tenters and who are consequently
away from their domicile except at
certain hours of the night, the taking
of the census is particularly difficult,
and It would not he altogether surprising If some were not missed.
Good, Sound Reasons for
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
never 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 holts and  stove  putty.    It's
important to every  one  using  or  buying
