FOR CLUB QUARTERS
Prince Rupert Rowing Club will Probably Purchase the River Steamer
Hazelton for Purpose.
Model Quarters for (he Energetic Or.
g.ml/.lltlon Will Be Tims Found
—Meeting  Tonight
The energetic rowing club recently
organized in the city Is to have model
quarters, It Is likely. Through a coincident they have had offered for
their use the river steamer Hazelton,
now lying at Port Simpson. The
machinery has been taken out of the
steamer, having been sent by the
Hudson's Bay Company to Athabasca
Landing, where it was used In fitting up a river steamer there. The
hull in its former condition had been
left at Port Simpson and with no
further use for it the company was
about to offer it for sale.
News of this was conveyed to some
of those interested in the rowing
club and at once the adaptability of
It for the purposes of a club house
appealed to them. An energetic, effort was at once made to secure tlie
hull for tho purpose, for which it
is most admirably adapted. Accordingly the good offices of all that are
interested in seeing the club go ahead
is being enlisted, with the object In
view of securing tlie hull and having
it brought to this porl and pul to
the use designed.
The cost is considerable for a
young club and the assistance of citizens generally is being requested in
order that the opportunity may not
be allowed to pass. There is to be a
meeting this evening In the office
of Major Gibson for the purpose of
considering ways and means in connection wiih this undertaking, All
who are interested In the proposition
of furthering the cause of good clean
sport in  the city are asked  to  lend

Basement   Will  Contain  a   Bowling
Alley—Work   Is  to  Be  Carried
Out at Once by Owners
The management of the Empress
Hotel finds that it is essential that
the premises be increased In size to
accommodate the growing demand.
For this reason it has been decided
now that the enlarging of the building cannot be longer delayed. Accordingly a start will be made upon
It at once.
The new wing will be erected on
the east side of the present building.
Two lots will be used in the extension and it will be three storeys In
height. The basement will be excavated and It is the Intention of the
management to equip the basement
thus created with a howling alley.
The work will start at once so as
to have the building ready as soon
as it can be got In shape lo handle

to this town and will remain here
for several months or longer, or until after the big steel bridge at Mud
Creek is completed.

That Prince Rupert Is the natural
centre for a tremendous production
of farm crops, is the word brought
by W. E. Scott, the deputy minister
of agriculture, from the province after a tour through a large part of
the district. Mr. Scott goes farther
and after his trip through the Naas
Valley, the Gardiner, the Kitwancool,
the Kitmangar and the rich arable
areas of the Skeena River Valleys,
he is prepared to say that nowhere
else In the whole province of British
Columbia is there to be found as
large and as rich an area of farm
land as he saw in this district. There
is room for hundreds of thousands of
settlers on the land. The area of
the Naas and its connecting valleys
he puts at from 500,000 to 1,000,-
000 acres of land unexcelled In the
whole of the province.
Mr. Scott returned to the city yesterday afternoon from up the Skeena
and Is now awaiting the arrival of
Mr. Carpenter, who was iiis companion, and the poultry superintendent
for the province, who also joined the
party after they reached the Skeena
River.
Easily   Cleared
The deputy minister has returned
to the coast with a very exalted opinion as to the possibilities of this
northern part of tlie province. Another feature in connection with the
country that was visited was the fact
that it is for the most part easily
cleared as compared with the land
In the southern part of the province,
which In itself is of decided advantage. There are, in fact, vast areas
of the land that he saw where the
plow could start at once in preparing for the cropping of the land.
There are hundreds of acres of it In
that condition. Mr, Scott is most enthusiastic over the outlook from that
part of the north and he expects to
see  il   make a  name for itself.
Air. Scott in no unmistakeable way
shows that he has been agreeably
surprised at what he has seen on this
trip. He had never expected, it Is
apparent, to meet with the conditions
that he encountered. He has discovered that the north from the standpoint of agriculture is the coming
district of the province of British
Columbia. The results that will follow the visit of the deputy minister
are difficult to estimate. He returns
to the south with exact information
relative to the country and will make
use of that information in the peopling of the rich valleys that there
are awaiting the arrival of settlers
to enter upon it and build up homes
for themselves.
The Kitsunikiiliini
This is not the first visit of the
deputy minister to the north. On a
previous occasion he went into the
Kitsumkalum Valley, and made a
most favorable report upon the
country there. That report is used
at the present as the most exact information upon the district for intending settlers. The Naas, however,
opened up to the official of the government a new area of farm land
that, he had known only from report
at second hand. He has now seen
it himself and in no uncertain way
does he describe it as the best opening for the intending settler that is
to be found In the province, which
is certainly saying a great deal
for  it,
A   Long  Trip
Mr. Scott is a most conservative
man. He never overestimates. His
position would preclude him from so
doing and In addit-'jn to that he has
no disposition to mislead In mailers
of such importance as the placing of
settlements. Under the guidance of
Robert Jennings, who knows the
country well, Mr. Scotl and Mr. Carpenter after a thorough inspection of
the Queen Charlotte Islands started
on the trip by why of the Naas River. They went up the Naas, making
careful Inspection as they proceeded.
Taking the branch valley of the Oar-
diner they traversed also lite Kitwancool and then on down to the Skeena
by way of the Kltwangar trail.
Throughout, the governmenl trails
were followed, with side trips in to
inspect tlie different sections as they
went along. The whole district forms
an unbroken farming section that
would be hard to beat anywhere in
the world.
The Naas Valley
The Naasm Valley, however, was
especially attractive to Mr. Scott.
There are wide stretches of land
there extending far back front the
river that are most inviting to tlie
settler. Thousands of acres are lying ready practically for the commencement of work upon them. The
soil is the very best. It is river silt
and adapted In a special way for
mixed farming. Immense crops of
all kinds could be produced upon this
land and from a dairy standpoint it
is all that could be desired. For
small fruits there is  no  question as
to its, productiveness. With respect
to the) raising of tree fruits, he does
not aire to say much as yet. That
is something that would have to
he tepted and until there has been
systematic experiments along that
line It is impossible to say just what
the results would be. It is an area
for mixed farming, however, that the
valley is, in the opinion of the official, admirably adapted.
Light Cost
Then, with respect to clearing, the
district is splendidly situated. Instead of having to spend $300 or
$400 an acre for the clearing as is
common in the southern part of the
( province the cost throughout a large
pari of ibis valley is only a matter
of a lew dollars. There are vast
stretches, he savs, where 'he clearing
no reason why there should not he
an immediate Inrush of settlers that
will be able to make excellent returns
from the raising of poultry.
On the visit to the Lakelse they
went out to the lake and were highly
pleased with the showing of the valley. It Is a rich district and the
time cannot be far distant when the
population that is warranted will be
on the lands in this section of the
country.
Speaking of the returns from farming, Mr. Scott says that In this province, with the prices such as they
are, and the production as it is, it
is possible for farms to make good
returns after paying $400 an acre
for the land. Under these conditions,
with the cost of clearing such as it
is  in  the  north,  I here  is  no  reason

When Steamer Leaves for thai River

The Stickine country is increasing
in importance with the opening up
of this northern territory. Telegraph
Creek is apparently becoming more
important all the time and as a proof
of this the Hudson's Bay Company
is increasing its facilities in that
post.
When the Port Simpson goes up
the river next week it will take up
the remaining stock of the company's store at Port Simpson. That
post will be practically done away
with as far as the company is concerned. With the development of
Prince Rupert there has been a corresponding falling off in Ihe importance of Port Simpson, which for a
long time held the place of first Importance in this northern part of the
country. Prince Rupert has become
the Important point, however, and
the store at Port Simpson is to be
closed. A considerable part of the
stock from there was taken  up the

EMINENTIV    SUCCESSFUL
Wednesday, May  16,  101:
RICH FARM LANDS
The report which the deputy minister of agriculture brings back after
his tour through the Naas and the
connecting valleys leading through to
the Skeena is such as to arouse a
feeling of intense satisfaction with
the future of the country contiguous
to this centre in the matter of agriculture. We are apt to look upon
the valleys as small in extent. This
is contradicted by Mr. Scott, who
asserts that there is land available
for thousands of settlers; in fact.
Hie numbers that he estimates, are
hundreds of  thousands  of  them.
It would appear from all the reports that are forthcoming thai Ihe
Naas is lo furnish a territory very
similar to the best lands of Ontario
with, of course, a milder climate in
winter and not Jlie same extremes
of heal in tlie summer,. The statement of Mr. Scott is that this region
It looks as though the city might
succeed in maintaining the delapi-
tated condition of Third Avenue east
of McBride for another year and a
half. Already the street at that point
has been torn it]) and put in shape
to allow for the fill and the building
oi' the retaining wall for the length
of lime mentioned. A gang of men
with wheelbarrows took compassion
on tlie street and filled up a very
considerable portion of it. if the
place is left a little longer it will fill
up in the ordinary course of events
i from such small additions to the fill
as from lime lo lime are (lumped
there by private parlies. When the
.,. ■ arted there was a very satisfactory plank Btreet, There was a
tearing out of the foundations of
buildings to prepare for the wall that
was lo lie built there when I he starl
was made. In consequence buildings
were left in a iiiuch less stable condition than before and yet nothing
hut    Ihe   holes   are   left.
We have every sympathy with
i host in charge of the street work In
Ihe effort to serve all parts as well
as possible. We must say, however,
thai we are beginning to regard tlie
situation as it exists at the point
referred to as indicative of other
than merely a coincident. If we
felt sure that within a year at least
there might be rock enough found in
the city to fill the hole it would not
be too bad but we are fearful that
under stress of financial circumstances which seems to have brought
with it the necessity for turning out
Ihe light opposite the place that the
dark weather of Ihe winter will find
the spot in Hie same condition. The
situation reflects little credit upon
those   responsible.

There is a settlement in the far
north which is coming into the public notice very much these days because it is the head of navigation on
Lesser Slave Lake and is destined,
for a time at least, to be a distribution point for the great Peace River
valley. The name of the town Is
Grouard. Almost everybody who is
at all interested in Ihe north country knows of Ihe town, nol so many,
however, know of the man lor whom
it was named.
To go back in the records of lime
forty-nine years is no particular teat
for Ihe hlslorlan. That Is what one
might call contemporaneous history.
But to go back that far in Ihe history ol' the far north is to mark clear
back to Ihe beginning ol tilings recorded, or nearly so.
The name Oouard has been identified with the development of the
Peace River valley for the last forty-
nine years, although the town of that
name is but a few years old. It is a
name which was taken into the north
by a man—a very human, manly
man, but yet a very good man.
Forty-nine years ago, when Emile
Grouard penetrated the loneliness of
the northern wilderness to carry the
cross to the savage tribesmen, he
was a young priest, invested with his
holy orders only a year before. He
was young in experience, but he was
strong in the enthusiasm of his pious
mission, and brave in the faith of the
greatest missionary church in the
world. The perils and hardships of
the north were far greater than they
are today, but where there was an
unbaptised heathen to be taught the
gospel, the obstacles could not be
too great for I his zealous missionary.
At that time nobody but the
agents of the Hudson's Bay Company, an occasional stray trapper and
one or two representatives of the
government had ever visited the
Slave Lake country. The Mounted
Police had not yet sprung into existence, and the pale face was a novelty to the Indians, and not a very
■welcome novelty, either. The civilized world looked on the north as ai
waste of snow and Ice and worthless
jungles. It was considered of no
commercial interest beyond being an
open range for fur bearing animals.
Nobody but a man with the courage of a great cause could have
taken upon himself to pioneer that
country with the message of love,
and deliberately isolate himself
away from even the casual paths of
civilized man. But such a zealot
was Father Grouard.
Times have changed considerably
since then. The Peace River valley
today is the lodestone which Is
drawing the pick of the men of the
rest of Canada, the Old Country, the
United States and a half dozen other
countries. Its population, though
small, Is growing with surprising
rapidity. From several different
points railroad lines are racing to
tap Its mines of eternal wealth. The
tide of civilization is sweeping northward like the rush of the Mississippi
broken through its levees. Bishop
Grouard is no longer isolated. In
the fullness of his years he can gaze
from the head of Lesser Slave Lake
in all directions and see the seed lie
cowed In his youth bearing rich fruit.
Bishop Grouard, now a venerable
gnowy bearded patriach of 77 years,
>> about to celebrate the golden anniversary of his priesthood. The
event will take place on the 29th
and 30th of June, "'he people of
Grouard and the surrounding country are making elaborate preparations to mark it with a lining celebration  for such  a
testation of the great teaching which
he brought.
So the Indians will gather from
far and near, and they will pay their
respects after their own way, not
overlooking, of course, the great
barbecue which is to be prepared.
It will.be the last great assemblage
of these rapidly disappearing people,
probably, and there is something
tragically sad in the realization of
this fact, and in the additional fact
that it is the power of tlie Influence
of one man, and he the representative of the white man's religion, that
has brought them together for the
final grand  powow.
Al Ihe convent, founded by Bishop
Grouard, and where he took a group
of devoted sisters when no while
woman had ever before ventured Into
that untracked wild, thel ittle hoys
have been drilled by some of the
sisters In a play written by a sister
in three acts to depict, a few of the
scenes In the life and work of the
bishop himself.
Something of what Bishop Grouard means to the physical development of the north, quite apart from
the spiritual, may be judged from
the fact that he built the first
steamboat on Lesser Slave Lake or
the Peace River or, in fact, anywhere in the north. Now special excursions will be run to his golden
anniversary by the Hudson's Bay
Company and the Northern Transportation Company, bringing his
friends and admirers from the scattered districts of the north.
The first sawmill and the first
grist mill in the north were also
built by the bishop, and he it was
who first plowed the wonderfully
fertile soil of the valley of the Peace.
He chose the site of the present town
of Grouard, and built the first house
thereon.
The church has grown with the
advancement of the country, and
eight or nine bishops of the north
will attend his jubilee. Four
churches in the north, at Grouard,
Athabasca Landing, Fort Vermilion
and Dunvegan, bear witness to the
genius of this remarkable man with
the brush, he having decorated their
interiors with religious paintings.

MILLIONS UNCLAIMED
British Government in  Possession of
$35,000,000 Waiting  for
Owners
in the story of the north country.
Tliis will he the blggesl thing thai
lias happened In a festive way so far
in the history of slave Lake; Indeed,
there may never be anything quite
like II again.     For these reasons the
The sum of $35,000,000 is in the
hands of the British government
waiting to be claimed by the rightful
owners or their heirs.
According to Sydney H. Preston,
who has made a study of this subject, a recently issued parliamentary
paper shows that the dividends on
government stocks due and not demanded is now $32 4,075. The non
claimants are in all likelihood inves
tors who have died.
"The greater portion of these
sums," declared Mr. Preston, "is
handed over to the government in
reduction of taxation on the under
standing that when the claimants
make good their case the sums they
are entitled to are reimbursed.
"The total amount of accumulated
unclaimed stock and dividends taken
over in this way is about $25,000,-
000, and I estimate that there is over
$10,000,000 in hand unappropriated,
making $35,000,000  in all.
"There seems to be no reason why
the names and last known addresses
of the stockholders should not be
published, seeing that tlie last list
of these unclaimed funds was Issued
as  far back as the year  1845.
"In  no other country  could there
be so  much  derelict   gold.    Tho explanation   lies  In   the  extent  of   the

AFTER   CANADIAN  TRADE
That the Australian minister of
customs (Mr. Tudor) is fully impressed with the necessity of establishing trade relations with Canada
on a more satisfactory footing than
exists at present, was acknowledged
by him in an interview which he
had with a gentleman who is actively
engaged In the export of butter and
frozen meat to the Dominion. The
gentleman made out a very strong
case. He showed that New Zealand
was now reaping work which had
been done  by  Australia.
An increasing trade with Canada
in frozen products had been built
up by Australia, but with the discontinuation of the Vancouver mail
service from .Inly of last year, shipping facilities had entirely disappeared. Australia, he explained,
had now to put up with New Zealand's leavings in the shape of refrigerating space. The service established with New Zealand by Canada Included Sydney as a port of
call, but as New Zealand had the first
call on space, not a single box of
butter had been shipped from Australia to Canada since the discontinuation of the Vancouver line of
steamers. New Zealand had, on the
other hand, shipped 3,500 boxes of
butter to Canada, and was also exploiting the meat trade.
Mr. Tudor indicated the probability
of an early agreement being arrived
at between the Commonwealth and
Canada on tlie subject of a reciprocal tariff. He had, he said, opened
up negotiations with the Canadian
governmenl. and he recognized the
urgency of I he question. Referring
to the advisability of establishing direct steamship communication with
Canada, Mr. Tudor added that without a reciprocal tariff arrangement it
would he of little use talking of a
direct service. The duty on Australian meat in Canada is six cents per
pound, as againsl four cents per
pound from New Zealand, and on
Australian butter eight cents per
pound, as  against  six cents.
Working al   Hays (reek
The work of getting things in
shape for drydock construction al

There are rooms in the vessel that
can be used for the purpose of club
Quarters and on the lower deck there
is ample provision available for the
shells and other purposes. The cost
of the hull is $500 on the way at
Port Simpson. It will cost considerable to bring it to the city and
fully equip it for the purpose for
Which it seems so admirably adapted.
In encouraging such an enterprise
citizens are assisting in arousing the
interest of the young men of the city
in a direction that tends to build up
strong manhood and develop all the
manly instincts of their nature. The
opportunity to secure club rooms at
a nominal cost is now afforded, and
the club stands in need of the encouragement in the carrying out of
