CITY'S WAGE SCALE
Subject of Increased Rates Comes Befor
the Council Last
Night.
Scheme   Being    Evolved    by   Which
More Economical Management
Can Be Maintained
The city council was waited upon
last evening my a large delegation
representing the Industrial workers
who ask 45 cents an hour for city
work. The visit of the delegation
was the outcome of the move made
before election for thisli Increased
pay. On Sunday evening a meeting
was held when it was decided to at
once make the request. It was explained last evening that the streets
commilt.ee, under Aid. Hilditch is at
work evolving a system of carrying
on the work done by the city so that
the best results may be obtained
from lit, The details of the scheme
will likely be ready for the next
meeting of the council and under it
Aid. Hllditch exppects that any increased pay which may be made will
be more than counterbalanced by the
effective work which will be possible.
Make Requests
A petition was presented by the
Industrial workers, signed by A. L.
Morse, (I. Casey and T. Maitland.
Aid. Clayton wanted to know who
these petitioners represented and
how many of the association were
citizens of Canada. He moved that
representatives be heard before the
council, which motion carried
Mr. Casey said he represented the
Industrial workers. The association
wanted to know as soon as possible
the viewis of the council on the subject. The weather conditions made
It more costly to live so that they
wanted to have the advantages to
be derived from the increased wage
scale as soon as possible. The fact
that the men who acceded to the request of the association before election were returned at the head of
the poll showed that this was a popular move.
Aid. Clayton said that he was willing to grant the 45 cents an hour
on condition that the association was
largely made up of citizens.
In reply, Mr. Casey said he
thought over half were British subjects.
In reply to Aid. Newton, the
speaker said that the members were
mostl ythose who worked on the
streets and In the sewers.
In reply to Aid. Kirkpatrick, the
speaker said the association was local. It was not affiliated with any
other body.
Aid. Hilditch asked what the delegates thought had been the average
wages drawn for the past three
months by the men working on the
streets.
Mr. Casey said he thought that
$45 a month would be a fail average.
Aid. Morrissey wanted to know
if if was the intention to have the
ntw rate apply to existing contracts.
Ni reply was volunteered to this
Aid. Pattullo was in favor o. pay-
Itu* good wages but he did not quite
n<-.c flat a worker should (» too
ift-ji" -'ant. It would no' be « i*e t'
kill the goose that la.d tho Holder,
egg. If the prices paid for the work
were too high investors here would
not sanction the work going on.
Citizen Workers
Aid. Newton explained that he had
always favore dlncreased wages to
citizen workmen. He never Intended
to make that term apply to Canadian workmen only. What he intended was that any man who was
prepared to make a home here
should be Included under the term.
Aid. Hilditch said that this was a
business proposition more than a
philanthropic one. He had studied
the question and wanted to see workmen get the best possible wages.
The men who were paying the taxes
should be protected. He believed
that by introducing the proper system the increase in wages might be
allowed for and the taxpayers would
not have to pay any more. He was
evolving a scheme by which the men
could give such service that the city
would lose nothing.
Aid. Clayton explained that he did
not mean by citizens that they
should be Canadians or even Britishers. What he meant was men who
were willing to come here and make
their homes inthe city and thus uelp
to build up the place. He thought
that was a reasonable demand.
Aid. Pattullo explained that there
was a wide variety of wages paid
now by men in the council. Some
were getting 37 '/& cents, others 4 0
cents, 45 oents and 50 cents. He
moved that the acting mayor name
a select committee of three to go
into this.
Aid. Clayton said he learned during his short term that there was a
wide variety of wages paid. He understood that the chief engineer in
city's pay, under Mayor Stork, one
got $100 a month, while assistants
got  $130 and  $160.
Aid. Morrissey advised that the
workers wait until the streets committee had evolved its plans by
which expert foremen would have
charge of the work and would by a
wise management of it make a saving lo the city, even at Increased
wages.
It was decided to refer the question to a seleot committee to be
named by the acting mayor, when
notice will be given the representatives of the Industrial workers so
that they can present their views before the committee.
Related   Motions
Later in the evening resolutions
dealing with the subject of wages
came up and provoked a continuation of the debate.
Aid.   Newton   moved   in   favor   of

KISPIOX   MURDER
Brutal Act by  Indians  Who are Im
plicated in the
Crime.
Perjury Charges May Uc Laid As n
Result of the Examination
(Speoial to The Journal)
HAZELTON, Jan. 24.—The body
of 'the Indian girl Janette, whose
murder was recorded a few days ago
brought to Hazelton for a post-mortem examination, disclosed the fact
that there had been a murder of the
most brutal nature committed. The
body was terribly mutilated.
The coroner's jury, after three
days' examination of seventeen witnesses drawn from the Kispiox Indians, and one white man, returned
a verdict of willful murder by a party or parties unknown.
Several witnesses, endeavoring apparently to shield the guilty one,
are believed to have perjured themselves while giving evidence and
will be prosecuted.

Ing Aid. Hllditch said that in looking over the plans he felt that at a
very small cost the G. T. P. could put
In some abutments and girders to
allow small craft to enter the bays
After some discussion it was proposed to prepare a letter to be forwarded in connection with the proposition. ,

Last evening in tbe Mclntyre hall
a most enjoyable evening was spent
at the Grand Scotch Concert and
dance given under the auspices of
J. S. Gray. The music was under
the charge of Mr. Gray, which ensured the best, and every one enjoyed the entertainment to the fullest.
THE DUNEDIN BLOCK
Proposed to Amend Bylaw Before Proceeding Further With
Demolition,
New  Method  Under    Which    Legal
Work of City Is Heing
Carried Out
The Dunedin block and the policy
to be pursued in connection with it,
caused a little ripple at the council
board last evening. In conjunction
with the discussion the question of
the city solicitors came up.
A report from the streets committee enclosed a written opinion from
C. V. Bennett, stating that lie felt
the council was within its rights in
going ahead and having the building
torn down, charging the cost against
the owners. The committee recommended, however, that die matter
should be delayed until the council
bad a chance to amend the building
bylaw where it was proposed to
impose a penality upon the owners
for not removing the building.
Aid. Hildltdh explained that this
had been a long time before the
council. He favored going ahead
and tearing the building down.
There was a difference of opinion in
the committee, however, and he was
in the minority.
Aid. Pattullo said the building did
not seem to be any menace as long as
it was not occupied. He preferred to
leave this until the building bylaw
was amended. Then the owners
could be fined for allowig it to stand.
Aid. Hilditch had no objection to
the move of Aid. Pattullo, but it necessitated going to the solicitors
again and finding whether there was
the authority to fine a man for allowing this to stand. He doubted
whether that power was given under
the act. They had the power to tear
it down. Aid. Pattullo should have
moved in this direction last year. It
had been up three months.
Aid. Pattullo said he believed in
crossing the bridge- when they came
to it. ' .";"
Aid. Hilditch said they had been
crossing it for three months.
Aid. Pattullo argued that the
question had never come up in this
way last year.
Aid. Hilditoh held that the facts
had all been before the council nd
a move could have been made had
Aid. Pattullo wanted it.
Aid. Morrissey agreed with Aid.
Pattullo on the ground that it would
be wiser to avoid comlications. The
occupiers of the building had been
forced to leave and might come on
the city for damages.
Aid. Kerr wanted to know if the
council could make the new amendment apply to buildings already
standing.
Aid. Pattullo said there was no
doubt it could, as the building would
still be unsafe after the bylaw was
amended.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know if
any solicitor had been engaged at
any time adn under what arrangement.
Aid. Hilditch said that the chairmen of the committees had met and
had decided to have Mr. Bennett
give advice as asked for. After a
test of that method it could be found
about what the work was worth.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know if
any membe rof the council who was
not a chairman of a committee could
go to the solicitor and seek advice.
A reference to the resolution was
made, when it. was found that the
duty of engaging a solicitor vested
with the mayor and chairmen of the
committees.
Aid, Newton said thai his idea in
moving the resolution was lo avoid
having the solicitor consulted on all
kinds of points without consideration.
Aid. Pattullo asked If any scale of
fees had been arranged for.
Aid. Hilditch said this had not
been arranged, but he understood it
would be. There was an advantage
in the new system which was seen
this evening. There would be advice sought on any olnt that arose
by the chairman of the committee,
acting for the committee. The opinion would be given In writing nad
would stnd. Thus they would avoid
the reversing of opinions on the
ground that a contrary one had not
been given.

next Monday evening.
EXPECT BIG TRADE
G.T.P.
Rolling Stock at This Point is
Being Constantly Supplemented.
General   Superintendent   Meehan   Is
Preparing; lor Heavy Traffic
in the Spring
The constant arrival in the city of
additional rolling stock for the G. T.
P. is the' best assurance that the
coming summer Is to see a lot ol'
traffic handled on the line. Already
the company has six locomotives on
Bills end of the line each one of ..hem
callable of hauling 1,100 tons on the
road as it now stands. When some
more ballasting is line anil general
overhauling accomplished, so thai
faster speed can be made, these engines wall handle considerably more
than this.
General Superintendent Meehan,
however, expects to keep these busy
with the opening of the spring.
The rolling stock to supplement
this end of the service is being added t all the time and there is considerable yet to be shipped from the
south. Yesterday the great wrecking plant reached port and has been
transferred to the rails ready for
any emergency.
This plant has a crane capable of
lifting any of the locomotives in use
here and placing it on the rails again
in ease of an accident. It can lift
100 tons without inconvenience.
In addition to the duty of serving
as a means of "first aid to the
wounded" rolling stock on the line,
the plant can be ut to other uses.
Mr. Meehan in fact is going to use
it to hoist heavy material into the
freight cars to be carried up the line
and expects to find it of great value
about the yard.

AFTER   BLIND  PIGS
Police Force Seek to Stamp Out Illicit
Sale of Intoxicating
Liquors.
Several  Charges to    He    Henrd  in
Court Tomorrow Morning
by  Magistrate
The city police force has waged
war upon the sellers of intoxicants
without licenses and upon other lawbreakers. The police court is consequently occupied with consideration of evidence against the retailers
of spirituous liquors who have not
licenses to sell. There are liquors of
various brands on exhibition in the
court room, the result of searches
made by Chief McCarvell anil bis
force,
The evidence of Ihe men accused
would tend to create the impression
that In many of these places stocks
of liquor are kept by private parlies
to celebrate holidays by giving to
their friends. Quick changes In ownership takes place also and the police
have difficulty In securing ihe necessary evidence.
Eva Tronce was called 1n court
this morning, hut failed to appear In
answer to the charge. A warrant
has been  issued  for  her arrest.
Several charges of having liquor
for sale without llcensj were laid
over this morning until tomorrow at
10 o'clock. In several of these cases
the police made searches and found
liquor. W. E. Fisher Is prosecuting.

Keep Open on Account
of  It
The heavy fall of snow does not
seem to be peculiar to Prince Rupert.
All along the coast and eastward on
the continent similar conditions are
being experienced. The peculiar feature of having sleighing is being met
with in other cities where such a
condition does not usually exist.
General Superintendent Meehan,
Superintendent McNleholl and Divisional Engineer Van Arsdol, of the G.
T, P., returned to the city on Monday evening by special train, after a
vain attempt to go through to the
end of the track. About 45 miles
out snow was encountered which
made it advisable to come back.
The company found it impossible
to complete the snow sheds before
ihe winter set in and the worst
trouble is naturally experienced
where the sheds are to go. The officials felt it was advisable to return rather than continue the difficult task before them. The clearing of the way will be left to the section men and to another locomotive
and snow plow- that is on the
ground.

T. E. Hankin, John Blume and
Herbert Mehan, operator at Fourth
cabin, on the Yukon telegraph line,
who has been on leave of absence for
two weeks spending the holidays at
Hazelton, have left for a prospecting
tour north of Hazelton. Hankin and
Elume will cruise a portion of the
extensive country around the head
watrs of the Skeena and will be
away for the rest of the winter,
with possibly one trip to town for
supplies.
T. E. Hankin is probably as well
p.isted as anyone on the vast coun-
tr ynorth of Hazelton and it is his
opinion that it is one of the best
portions of British Columbia. The
great coal district cf which Groundhog mountain is a part is apparently
hundreds of square miles in extent.
There are prairies, covered at the
lime of his visit with buffalo grass,
which it took two days of travel to
cross. The winter climate is mild
and there is every indication that
'attle would thrive with little if any
feeding between seasons.
From Hazelton to Bear lake the
mountains on the east bank of the
Skeena show signs of mineral
everywhere.

RECEPTION TO CREW
H.M.C.S Rainbow is Expected in Prince
Rupert Within a Short
Time.
Couucil     Take    Steps  to  Accord  a
Hearty Welcome lo (he Officers anil Men
The city council last evening considered the question of a reception
in tlie Canadian training ship Rainbow, on her arival here. The vessel
is on her first northern cruise as a
fishery protection cruiser and will
call he-re.
Nu particulars have been received
but it is anticipated that she will
spend several days in port, her
cruise lasting about six weeks. On
the way north she will take the outside passage, calling at Alborni, on
the west coast of Vancouver Island,
and keeping a lookout for poachers.
On the return trip she will go by
the Inside passage.
A committee consisting of Aid.
Kirkpatrick, Aid. Pattullo and Aid.
Clayton, was appointed to look after
the reception. It was suggested that
a banquet might be served the officers winch would be practically self-
paying. The men will probably be
tendered a smoker at the expense of
the city.
The acting mayor, Aid. Smith, is
taking means to ascertain when the
vessel will be here.

LIMBER PURCHASES
Georgetown   Sawmill   Will   Furnish
Dimension Spruce for a
Time
The city council will purchase
such dimension lumber as Is needed
at present, from the Georgetown
sawmill, This was decided upon last
evening on a report from the streets
committee.
Aid. Hllditch explained that the
Westliolme Lumber company could
not assure dimension lumber until
April 10. It was wise 1o obtain this
from tlie Georgetown Lumber company wkhich could deliver the lumber In about a week. The price of
$14.50 a thousand was not very
muoh in advance of what the West-
holme Lumber company asked for it.

In charge of the road work under

Mr. W. F. McLean, M. P., In the
house of commons a few days ago,
introduced as an amendment to the
government's motion to go Inlo supply, the following:
"This house hereby declares that
steps be at once taken to ascertain
the rights of the public using Ihe
Cnadian Pacific railroad to reduce
the tarif (because of a provision In
that regard contained in the Act of
Parliament ratifying the agreement
with the company, or any other act."
Mr. McLean's contention was that
parliament should Intervene on the
strength of the clause of C. P. R.
Act fo 1881, whereby the eompnny
is, or was, bound to reduce rates
when its net earnings should exceed
ten per cent of the capital expenditure upon the railway. As against
this It was pointed out that by tho
ad of 1ST" when ihe company acquired   the   Crow's   N'esl   Pass     frnn-
chlse, tin. c. P, ii. was pledged to
submit to the Jurisdiction of the
board ol railway commissioners then

panj had been under the Jurisdiction
nl ihe board as to rail's ever since
Hie formal Ion of the board th" same
as other railways, Therefore, it was
argued, redrafts of such grievances
as .Mr. Mil."an complained of was
ihe function of the borad and not ot
parliament,
The amendment was defeated,
only one member standing up with
Mr. McLean to demand "Yeas nnd
Nays."

Supply the Money
The inhabitants of Great Britain,
notwithstanding the limited extent of
the natural resources of their own
country, and their need to purchase
from ol her lands, and to transport
from distant parts of the earth the
greater portion of their supplies of
food and raw materials, have been so
successful in overcoming the obstacles placed in their path by nature
that they have not only had the
means of purchasing all the food,
raw materials, and manufactured
goods they have needed to buy from
other lands for their own consumption and maintenance, but they have
been able to create so much surplus
wealth that they have supplied other
nations with visible capital to the extern ol nearly 1:2,200,000,000, or
approximately $10,000,000,000, as
well as with a large amount of private capital, so that the total sum
provided is estimated to be upwards
of £3,500,000,000,000. The days of
miracles are supposed to have passed
bin hail anyone predicted two generations ago that in 1910 Great Britain would posses this great wealth
abroad, over and above the vastly
increased wealth of her own people
at home, the prediction would have
been regarded as beyond the possibility of realization, said the editor
of the Staist in a recent lecture.
That Great Britain has been so
successful is undoubtdly due to the
enterprise, courage, hard work and
thrift of her people, which have
caused them to save money in the
first place, and in the second to use
it wherever the best results were to
obtained -whether in their own country or in other lands. In fact, wherever capital has been urgently needed and likely to obtain profitable
employment the British investor has
been ready to find a large part of the
sums required. Sometimes the production of coal required to be expanded, sometimes the copper supply had to be largely increased,
-sometimes tin, or nitrate, or gold, or
silver, or lead, or power—in fact,
British capital was available for producing anything that the world urgently required for its use. The result of this attiude of our investors
has been an increase not only in
the wealth of Great Britain beyond
the dreams of the most sanguine,
but an expansion In the prosperity
of the whole world at a rate and in
a im asure never previously witnessed or possible. The greatness of
ih work accomplished by th investors of ('.real Britain cannot fail to
impress every Impartial person.
The lecturer, in weighing up the
advantages which have accrued from
Great Britain's policy of investing
capital wherever it was urgently
needed, said:
"In ascertaining Ihe large amounts
of capital that Great Britain has supplied lo individual colonial and foreign countries, one is compelled to
recognize the powerful influence
which Great Britain has exerted In
developing the world's natural resources by supplying other countries
freely with the funds for railway
construction, for mining, and for the
prodction of every kind of nature
wealth. It is no exaggeration to
state that Great Britain's enterprise in placing her supplies of new
capital wherever they could be profitably employed has been one of the
great forces which has made for the
increased prosperity of the human
race in modern times."
The income directly derived by
the British people from their investments abroad now reaches a very
large sum. In the paper it is shown
that he investment of about $2,700,.
000,000 of British capital up to the
end of 1907 in other lands gave a
direct income of £140,000,000 a year
to this country, and it is fair to assume that he investment of nearly
£3,200,000,000 gives a return of
about £160,000,000 a year which
comes to us in the produce of the
countries in which we have invested
capital, and thus provides us with
no inconsiderable part of the supplies of food and raw materials we
obtain from abroad. But the indirect advantages of the capital investments are quite as important as
the direct advantages. By means of
the capital which our investors have
supplied the young countries and
India have so greatly expanded their
productions of food and raw materials that they have had the means
not only of paying the interest due
by them to Great Britain, but of pur.
chasing greatly increased quantities
of British goods. The prosperity of
Great Britain, which has provided
the capital, has been stimulated in
thre eways:
First, the remittance of capital to
^ i-'^^J'^-^ \? '
other lands has created a greatly increased demand for British goods.
Second, the remittance of the interest upon the capital has increased
Great Britain's purchasing power,
and has given her the means of paying for a large part of her supplies
of food and raw materials.
Third, the investment of British
capital abroad has greatly increased
the production of other countries
and given  them the means of pur
chasing additional quantities of British goods.
Moreover, after 60 years of large
investments the world's need of
British capital Is greater than ever,
and in 1910 the amount of British
capital supplied to other lands had
reached the unprecedented figure of
£165,000,000, while in the last three
years it has been £455,000,000. The
investment of this new capital assures to -the world In general fresh
supplies of foodstuffs and raw materials needed to feed and clothe her
growing population. Furthermore,
it enables other nations to purchase
additional quantities of British
goods, both by reason of the loans
of capital and of their increased productions. In brief, the investment
of British capital wherever it is
needed brings advantage to everyone.
In the Daughter States of the Em
pire and In India the investment of
British capital has been very great;
In the aggregate it reaches £1,554,-
000,000, of which £83,000,000 has
been supplied in the present year.
In the three Daughter States of Canada, Australasia and South Africa
the amount reaches nearly £1,100,-
000,000—a very large sum when we
recollect that the total population of

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
THE TENNIS DOHERTYS
Reginald F. Doherty, elder cf ti'ae
brothers of the noted Englisa temofB
team, who died recently, made his
first, appearance on American courts
in the summer of 1902 with his
brother and Dr. Pim, forming the
British team in an unsuccessful attempt to lift the Davis international
cup.
The matches were played at the
Crescent Athletic club at Brooklyn
and while the Doherty brothers won
the doubles event, defeating Ward
and Davis in four sets, 3-fi, 10-8,
6-3, 6-4, they lost in the singles
contest and the cup stayed in America.
Those matches were played during
the first week in August and two
weeks later the Doherty brothers
entered the national championship
at Newport, and R. F. Doherty went
through to the challenge match, defeating former Champion M. D.
Whitman in the finals of the allcomers tournament, in a four-set
match. The next day R. F. Doherty
met the title holder, William A.
Darned, and was defeated in a four-
set contest.
The Doherty brothers returned the
following year and made a clean
sweep of the American tennis courts.
They carried the Davis cup to foreign lands where it still remains,
by defeating Lamed and Robert D.
Wrenn adn his brother, George L.
Wrenn at Long'.vood. R. F. Doherty
was obliged to default one of these
matches, but H. L. Doherty defeated
R. 1). Wrenn in the other single
match, and the following day the
brothers defeated the Wrenn brothers in the doubles event. On the
third day R. F. Doherty met R. D.
Wrenn, while II. L. Doherty played
Lamed, the matches being contested on adjoining courts. Both English players won in five hard sets.
Two weeks later the Dohertys appeared In Newport, where they successfully defended their doubles
Championship and won their way
through to the filial challenge match
in the singles tournament. Then
R. F. Doherty gracefully waived a
chance to meet Darned for the title
and allowed his brother the honor
of being the only foreigner to win
the American lawn tennis championship.
By reason of his height and length
of arm, R. F. Doherty was wonderful in stopping drives, while his
general game was marked by its
graceful ease and calculating coolness. His steadiness, collided with
his brother's brilliancy, made a combination that withstood the attacks
of tlie best players in the world for
many years.

IDITAROD   DISCOVERER
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
Tlie Iditarod discovery was made
by W. A. Dikeman and John Beaton,
according to Dr. D. H. Sleem, the
"mushing doctor" of Alaska, in the
Alaska-Yukon .Magazine. The two
prospectors found gold in tlie first
prospecting hole they sank on Otter
creek, Christmas day, 1908. In the
following spring after the break-up,
they steamed up the Inuoko, bound
for Ophir to record their claims. On
the lower Innoko they met the Martha Clow, bound for Fairbanks, and
it was the first to spread the news
of the strike that threw Fairbanks
into a turmoil. Every imaginable
sort of craft was pressed into tlie
service of reaching the new gold
fields. An old-time stampede was
on and the fever ran high. In such
times In the north fortunes are
quickly spent and made. The steamboat Tana was disinterred from its
graveyard in Chena slough where it
had lain decaying for years. It was
put into immediate commission by
its owner, Captain Langley, and
cleared for him $20,000 in the firet
trip.
It is just two years ago since
gold was first discovered in the valley of the Iditarod and only in the
last year has there been actual production. Already more than $800,-
000 stands to the credit of the camp,
with the probability of a $5,000,000
output in 1911 and a total output
from ground already prospected of
$25,000,000 to $30,000,000.
While the original discoveries were
in a limited area this is being steadily widened by prospecting and there
is little doubt that the next year will
\see a large district in that part of
Alaska buzzing with productive activity and excitedly listening to the
lure of new strike reports from still
more remote points.
From careful observaloin of the
district made this pail summer 1
should say that opportunities for experienced miners will be as great
next year as ever, that there will be
much (good ground still unstaked
and unprospecttd and many chances
for lays on established ground not
directly in the Iditarod camp of today.

CITY   WORK
The new city council, not excluding members who sat on last year's
board, are showing a laudable ambition to grapple with the whole
question of labor as it affects city
work. Lasl evening a large pari ol
the time of the council was given
o, r iii consideration of this point,
and every member showed a disposition to do what was right by all
concerned.
As the representatives of the
whole mass of the people, the members of the council must do what
they think is in the best, interests
of the entire city, irrespective of the
desires of any one class. The streets
committee is evolving a scheme it
was reported that is expected to remove many of the objections usually
urged against the system of day
labor.
In too many cities the system of
day labor is apt to degenerate into a
sort /of charity proposition where
men who are not able to compete in
the open labor market find places
in the city employ. In a place as
young as Prince Rupert there are
not many old men to provide places
for. The city workmen are not asking for any favors in this respect as
far as we have heard. They are prepared to do a good day's work
without the charitable side being
introduced at all.
This is as it should he and by
the selection of capable foremen who
must, stand or I'all themselves according as their work shows up,
many of the objections to day labor
can he removed. In the final analysis, the matter gets down to day
labor. The contractor or sub-contractor must employ the labor in
that manner.
It is to be hoped that the proposition wthich Aid. Hilditch will be able
to put. forward will be such as to
satisfy all sides giving as he hopes
it will, increased value to the city
for the money expended. The taxpayers will not object to the expenditure if it can be shown that
full value is being got.

GOVERNMENT WILL ASSIST
VANCOUVER—Although it was
a signal success as an advertisement
and as an educative feature, the first
Canadian apple show held here
closed with a deficit of $6,558. To
'I o enable the promoters of the exhibition to meet this deficit they
came to the executive requiring a
special grant of $5,000, despite the
fact thai the provincial government
had found itself unable to make the
apple show a gram when It was originally promoted, the government
having already materially assisted
Ihe Vancouver exhihtion. In view,
however, of tlie unforeseen and unforeseeable circumstances whirh
operated chiefly to occasion the apple show deficit, the government has
found itself justified promising
that the sum of $4,000 will be placed
in the estimates at the approaching
session whirh will reduce the deficit
very appreciably. In addition Hon.
Mr. Bowser has recently received
from the Canadian Pacific Railway
company a cheque for $1,000 as a
compllmentar donation to' assist the
apple show promoters in closing their
account with credit,

Trail, apparently well authenticated,
that Mr. Aldridge is retiring from
the management of the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting company, which
has, under his administration, been
built up into a great institution,"
says the Nelson News. If the report
be confirmed the news will be re-
ceiveod with widespread regret. Mr.
Aldridge haos become, as it were,
part of the established order of

CLEARING   CANYON
QUESNEL—The Dominion contractor, Fred Heyden, has returned
from Fort George Canyon, having
completed his work of blasting out
the obstructions to navigation as tains his appropriation of $7,000 would
permit. He reports that the steamers will have no difficulty in going
through the main ohannel at either
high or low water.
The chief work was done on Ihe
main channel or western one. The
eastern channel, however, was also
cleared o fthe larger rocks, and can
now be used. A trail has been made
so that the steamers will be able to
line up with ease.
SUCCEEDS CAMPBELL
FERNIE—It is reported that
Chief Constable Sampson of the provincial police district of Fernie, has
been transferred to \ ancouver to
take up the duties of chief constable
of the Vancouver district, which has
been vacant ever since the appointment of Chief Colin Campbell to the
post of provincial liquor license Inspector. Constable John Munro, who
has been acting in the absence of a

A despatch from Ottawa to the
effect that the Dominion government
and New Zealand have entered into
a five-year contract with the Union
Steamship company for a direct service between British Columbia and
New /calami, a service which will
supersede the present one to Australia from Canada, atracted considerable interest.
The Canadian-Australian steamship service, supplied by the Union
Steamship company and the Hud-
dart Parker owners, the former supplying two steamers and the latter
the new steamer Zealandia, has been
for some time past negotiating for
a five-year contract with Canada,
Australia and Now Zealand. It was
proposed to extend the present service by the inclusion of a call at Auckland, New Zealand. Canada and
New Zealand wer agreed upon this,
but the Australian government objected to the call at the New Zealand
port, contending that New Zealand
with better trade agreements with
Canada would be placed in a much
more advantageous position than
Australia, and the commercial bodies
of Brisbane also objected, fearing
that the Auckland call would result
in the call at Brisbane being cut out.
South Australian bodies meanwhile
were petitioning to have the service
extended from Sydney to Melbourne.
Sir James Mills, manager of the Union Steamship company, is now in
Australia negotiating with The commonwealth government, and It is
considered unlikely thta a definite
contract, will be entered Into pending
the completion of the negotiations in
Australia.
The Proposal
The Ottawa despatch says the subsidy to be paid by Canada will be
$37,000, and New Zealand will pay
$20,000. It   says   also   that   the
Ottawa government has decided, if
Australia persists in the refusal to
join in a contract lo include New
Zealand to cut out the Australian
J calls. There is still an opportunity,
however, for Australia lo join in Ihe
arrangement.
It is unlikely thai a sen Ice which
dues not provide a call al an Australian port, will he satisfactory, as the
Canadian-Australian line has been in
existence for many years, and a considerable business has been worked
up  between   Canada   and   Australia,

IN DEBATE
Baptist  Young  People  Have  Vigorous Organization in tlie
Church
At the regular Monday evening
meeting of the Baptist Brotherhood
last night a very interesting lecture
on "A Survey of the Whole Age of
the Reformation" was delivered by
Rev. W. H. McLeod, and was very
much appreciated by all present.
This is one of a series of many lectures which Mr. McLeod intends to
give for the benefit of the Brotherhood. Many interesting topics are
in store for the members. Besides
other business last evening, arrangements were made fori a debate for
next Monday evening. The subject,
which relates to the present police
system of P Ince Rupert, should be
very interesting and will call for a
good deal of hard study by the speakers. The debate will be^jirartically
improptu, any member having the
opportunity to speak, although
teams have been chosen In lead the
different sides. The leaders arc
Messrs. IL lingers and Hansen for
the affirmative, and .Messrs. Stewart
and  Cowles for the negative.
A request from the Presbyterian
Young Men's club, stating that they
were anticipating a debate in the
near future amongst themselves, but
thought it would be more Interesting
if the Brotherhood should uphold
one side against them. The Presbyterian Young Men's club had already
chosen a subject and the. side on
which they would debate, and would
like the Brotherhood to oppose them
on that subject. The Brotherdhood
agreed and consequently a team,
Messrs. Stewart and Cowles, wns
chosen to meet the Presbyterians on
February 8 to debate on the subject, "Resolved, that a lawyer Is nol
justified in defending a criminal
whom he knows to be guilty." The
Brotherhood will take the affirmative side of the question.
As this will be the first time the
two  organizations have    come    to
gether to debate, it should prove a
very lively and interesting talk on
this subject. Some time ago a challenge from the Brotherhood was accepted by the Presbyterians for a debate, which should take place before Christmas, but as the Christmas season ana the Important meetings of a public character occupied
a good del of time it was deemed
wise to postpone the debate, and it
will probably be held within the near
future in the Baptist church.

will not be made. The Seattle
charterers of the steamer, under
whose auspices tlie voyage was to

no other course Is open to them.
It transpires that the excursion

investments, the lecturer stated that,
"in so far as the prosperity of the
British Empire is governed by the
amount of capital which the Mother
Country is able to supply to the colonies and to India, its future expansion is assured. Never has Great
Britain had so much new capital
available for investment in the colonies and In India, and never has she
supplied money so freely to the
other nations of the Empire as she
has done in the past few years."

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
BOOSTING   PROVINCE
Hon. Price Ellison Told Britishers What
a Glorious Country This
Was.
He Described Some of the Resources
of the Northern Section in
Speech in London
Hon. Price Ellison, minister of
finnce and agriculture, in the povin-
cial government, left nothing undone during his recent visit to the
British Isles to Induce settlers and
Investors to come to British Columbia. At a dinner given in his honor
at the Piccadilly Hotel, London, at
which the Duke of Argyle presided,
and where there were present a very
distinguished group of guests, Hon.
Mr. Ellison made a specially strong
appeal lor British Columbia.
His Grace ,the Duke of Argyle, described the minister as as coming
among them looking like a God of
Harvest, crowned with fruit and accompanied by baskets of apples
about the size of a cannon ball.
In the course of his speech, Mr.
Ellison said:
"And we have salmon, gentlemen. That needs no sowing, but
Just the reaping. It means millions
of dollars annually. We have the
greatest deep water fishing In the
world, and It is just waiting for gentlemen like yourselves to come there
and make yourselves rich. Not that
you need it—(laughter)—but you
will help to develop one of the greatest industreis In the world. And there
it is, the great deep wator fishing of
British Columbia. There are millions in it.
"Many of you have heard of Vancouver (laughter). It is the terminus of that great railway, the greatest and best modern railway and
most successful transportation company, the Canadian Pacific railway,
the Canadian corporation in which
some of you gentlemen have been
fortunate enougKh to put your money and I am sure you have never regretted it, genotlemen. But, by the
way, it is not the only corporation
that Is trying to get to the coast of
British Columbia. The Dominion
government have seen fit to subsidise and help to build the railway
known as the Grand Trunk Pacific.
This is an old and successful corporation, and they are going to Prince
Rupert. The McBride Government,
last year, appealed to the country on
the railway policy. They were opposed to subsidising or assisting any
railroads, in any way, shape, or form
for six years. They sa'd, 'If a railroad comes to British Columbia, it
must come on its own merits.' It
seemed to be about the best thing to
say. But if you are growing, and
your pants get too small, you have
got to get bigger ones (laughter).
Now we are prepared to assist this
company, the Canadian Northern
company, one of the greatest and
miost up-to-ttate companies an the
world, and we assisted them and
guaranteed the interest of the bonds,
on $35,000 a mile to traverse British Columbia. I can assure you that
the resources of British Columbia
have only just been scratched over,
and I wish to tell you her that the
mines of the great Cariboo country
will be brought in touch by the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway, the greatest
gold producing country in the world.
It will require hydraulics and wator
power to work It, but the output of
gold will be greater than it has ever
been; and in saying that I am not
drawing on the imagination in the
least, because today it costos from
four to six cents a pound to put
freight into the country, and when
railways are built they will put It
there for one-sixth. I am here tonight to Invite each and every one
of you to come or to send that which
makes the Empire great, I am here
pleading almost as a parson that
your souls should be saved, for you
to come out to the west, where you
get a hundred days' sunshine. Can
you imagine such a oountry?"
HEROIC CONSTABLE
ALBERNI—G. C. Sayers, one of
the most efficient officers in the
police department of Satkatchewan,
was taken to Victoria in a dying condition as the result of a firce fight
in which he had engaged with a pair
of highway robbers and box-car looters he had tracked from the prairie
province to Vancouver Island. With
three bullets in his body, Sayers refused to be conquered by the bandits
and backing to the wall of the
shack in which the fight took place,
he held his men at bay till he fell
in a dying heap from sheer loss of
blood. The two men wanted were
captured a few moments later by
Sayers' comrades who were on guard
outside the shack.

CITY WAGE SCALE
(Continued from Page One)
applications heing made at the city
hall for work and when assistance
was wanted those in charge should
give the preference to citizen workmen.
Aid. Newton explained that it had
been brought to his attention that
citizens had been deprived of work.
In the instances he referred to they
discharged men were family men.
This was not a proper proceeding.
His resolution was intended to overcome ground for complaint. The
latest arivals should be the first laid
off.
Aid. Clayton seconded; the motion. He felt that newcomers should
not be given work over the heads
of residents who were helping to
build up the city.
In reply to Aid. Pattullo, Aid.
Newton said citizen workmen in the
resolution did not refer to any particular race. It meant those who
intended to make their homes here.
Detailed information
Aid. Hilditch suggested that a resolution prepared by Aid. Morrissey
should be read, as it might take
the place of this resolution.
Aid. Morrissey read his motion
which provided for the keeping in
the city hall of a record of applications for work with details as to
residence here and many other features.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to see the
both motions allowed to stand over.
He did not mean to say that all that
was done by last year's council was
perfect. The council did the best
that could be done under the conditions   existing.
For 6,000 years humanity had
been evolving the present systems
of social conditions.
For 6,000 years more he supposed
they would continue to do it.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to see Aid.
Morrissey's resolution carried. It
was tlie first move in the direction
he aimed at of having the work reduced to a system. Until the heads
of departments knew the men available for work, how could they carry
out the scheme?
Aid. Newton did not think the
resolution of Aid. Morrissey took
the place of his.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the
plan of Aid. Newton dseemed to cut
out young men. While married men
were of great benefit to the city, yet
he did not favor cutting young men
.■out.
Aid. Newton did not want the impression to go abroad that he wished
to discriminate in favor of married
men against young men. He did
not.
Aid. Newton's motion carried.
Aid.. Morrissey's motion also carried.
The Civic Services
Aid. Clayton moved to 'have the
heads of all departments furnish
lists of all employees stating whetner
they were citizens or not.
A second resolution was that a
committee of three, of which the
mayor should be one, should go into
the matter of the olty hall staff to
see if some saving could not be effected.
In support of the resolution Aid.
Clajton said he wanted information,
be reduced, but he wanted to have
it gone into.
He found that one department,
that of the engineer's staff, cost
$21,000. He did not know that this
was out of the way, but he would
like to go Into it. It seemed a tre-
jnendous cost for a city the size of
Prince Rupert. Then the city hall
staff cost $10,000. It seemed too
great, for a city the size of this also.
Aid. Pattullo said the council of
last year, if it erreod was on the
line of economy. He was glad to see
this matter taken up, however. It
must be  remembered  that the  city
was constructing an electric light
and a telephone system, as well as
the ordinary lines of the city business. He thought the finance committee could look into this.
Aid. Newton said he did not hope
to revolutionize tlie matter of the
civic service. Tlie citizens were in
the dark and information was wanted.
Aid. Morrissery thought it was
not asking too much to have a
monthly report for the information
of the public. Any business would
do  that.
Question of Terms
The question of c.itzens then came
up again, Aid. Pattullo feeling that
the heads of departments would interpret it as Britisli subjects.
Aid. Hilditch said it meant every
able-bodied  man   in  the  city.
Alii. Newton contended that it was
clear that If a man had not been
here only for a week or two he
should not be given a preference
over men who had been here a long
time.
Aid. Pattullo thought the first
thing that would suggest itself to
the engineer upon receiving this
would be that it meant British subjects.
Aid. Clayton said he had not gone
so far as that, but in this particular
resolution where he was seeking the
information he would be willing to
go to the extent of making it mean
British subjects.
Aid. Pattullo said they had now
an interpretation of what was a citizen.
Difference of Opinion
Aid. Newton did not care who
the men were as long as they came
here to live. He would not accept
the interpretation suggested.
Aid. Kirkpatrick thought that in
a new city like this where there was
not a great deal of work to give they
might restrict the word citizen to the
general acceptation that of a British
subject.
Aid. Morrissey feared that there
might be an impression get abroad
that Prince Rupert was not wanting
men to come here.
Aid. Clayton explained he asked
only far a list for information and
guidance.
The resolution was changed to
British subjects and a committee,
consisting of the acting mayor, Aid.
Kirkpatrick, Aid. Clayton and Aid.
Newton', was appointed to go into
this subject.

ALONG ROUTE OF G. T. P.
Interior  Sections  of    Country    Give
Excellent Promise for Future Settlement
Returning from a three weeks'
trip to the Stewart lake, Fraser lake
and Nechaco valley countries Messrs.
F. N. Dewiar, manager of the Bank
of Vancouver, J. T. Carter, manager
of Hotel Fort George, and James
Harris, are loud in praise of the
agrficultural possibilities of the vast
country to the north and west of
Fort George. Leaving Fort George
with a tem aand sleigh they went in
by way of Blackwater Crossing, experience gno difficulties in travel
though they were compelled to camp
several nights on the trail owing
to the uninhabited state of the country north adn west of Blackwater.
Tlie weather conditions, however,
ideal, and the trip was thoroughly
enjoyed.
As Mr. Dewar remarked, the middle of December is not the best time
of year to visit the Fraser and Stew-
are lake districts, but even then a
trip is well worth while and one
can obtain a fairly good Idea of the
value of lands for agricultural purposes.
At Stoney creek, on Nootka lake,
there is much good level land, easily
cleared and, from what the settlers
already there state, very fertile.
At the Fraser lake there Is much
more clearing to do and the land is
not so level but there is good land
in -siiot.-
On the Nechaco, al Milne's land-
inn, about fifteen miles northeast of
Stoney creek postofice, there is a
stretch of country about ten miles
north and south, and about sixteen
miles east and west that is as level
as a biliard table an done can see
for miles, there being only small
strips of small timber and scrub.
Some of the settlers there have as
much as 150 acres on which there
was not even a stump w.hen they
took it up.
From about ten miles north of the
river to within about eight miles of
Stewart lake the country is covered
with jackpine, small spruce and fir.
It is rolling and is interspersed with
small creeks and bottom lands, scattered through which are a number
of hay meadows.
From eight miles from Stewart
lake .- the Hike, the country slopes
gently down and is covered with
small poplar and wiillow, and seems
to be first-class land. Oats this year
were very successfully grown nad
harvested by one man at Stewart
lake, and wheat is to be tried in the
spring. The snow there at this time
of the year is about three feet deep,
and consequently there si no frost
in the ground.
It must be remembered that practically all the best and open land at
Stoney creek, Fraser land and Stewart lake is already pre-empted or has
been purchased by land and colonization companies. But there are still
a number of pre-emptions that can
be obtained. All the lands of these
districts are being surveyed as rapidly as possible, and as soon as the
several railways now building or
about to be built through the country are in operation, one of the best
and richest parts of the northern interior will be rapidly filled up.
There are upwards of 200 settlers
in this section. In and around Stoney creek and Lake Town, on Nootka lake, there are sixty odd. At Fraser lake and contiguous to it about
the same number. At Milne's landing and on the Nechaco river, over
seventy. And about twenoty at and
near Stewart lake. West of Fraser
lalce to Francois lake there are about
sixty more. These figures comprise
those who are actually residing on
their land this winter, and dose not
include those who were there during
the summer and have gone out for
the winter. Next summer they expect upwards o fl.OOO bona fide settlers to come in and start operations.
