Display From Lawn Hill and Vicinity Has Been
Received By the G.T.P. Company and
Placed on Display In Windows of the
Offices In This City-Show Is
Made Up From What Was
Exhibited at Exhibition In That Part
of Riding.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Company's offices . here have received
from Queen Charlotte City a very
excellent display of vegetables and
field crops grown In that part of the
Queen Charlottes and around Lawn
Hill. These have been put on display in 'the windows on Centre
street, the local offices of the company. The display makes up a part
of the exhibit that was made, at the
Lawn  Hill exhibition a week ago.
In handling tlie exhibits as much
as was done before they were finally laid down in the local offices the
articles in many instances have suffered materially in appearance. This
applies to the yellow beans and the
samples of grain on the stalk. The
general character of the display is
of the highest order and is a demonstration in very practical form of
what this part of tlie province can
The Queen Charlottes are not
among the least valuable of the

The exceedingly mild winters there,
together with the very moderate
weather that prevails at all times,
is a very strong recommendation for
intending settlers who may be seeking a place to locate. Already it has
been proven that the soil is productive and the display in the windows of the Grand Trunk Pacific-
offices is sufficient to show that
there are no vegetables that cannot be produced  to perfection.
Potatoes that will rival anything
produced In the Dominion are included In the display. There are pea
vines shown loaded with pods. Cabbage seems to do remarkably well
In common with its sister vegetable,
the cauliflower, and some gigantic
samples of both varieties are to lie
seen. A small number of apples
has been sent over. Beets, carrots,
mangels, parsnips and horse ran' b
of the very best qualities are among
the products of the Islands that
have been sent to tbe city to show
what is in store for Prince Ruperl
in the way of garden supplies in a
very few years' time.
Oats in the stalk and other grains
and grasses are shown These sn'e of
excellent quality. The height of rho
timothy and grain is an Indication
of tlie richness of the soil that has
produced il- Tl|e grain Itself is
plump and heavy.

has been a commercial showing in
the line of fruit, .Vegetables anil

is expected that there will bo n '.cry

the matter of garden produce. In

a very excellent class of settlers going in and taking up the land mil

The Doughty Trawlers Triumph and the Canada
are Expected to Reach Here on Monday
-Canada Fish & Cold Storage Plant
Nay Be Used In Handling the
Catch at the Start Until
the Company's Own
Central Station Is
It  is expected   that  on    Monday i
the first of the deep sea trawlers for I
this port will  arrive  in  the harbor. I
These  are  the  Triumph    and    the i
Canada that have  been  brought  to
the Coast by the Doughty interests
to  be  used  in   the  prosecution    of
their industry    in  and  about    this
harbor,  and   across  on  the    Queen
Charlottes.     Mr.   Wilfred     Doughty,
wJio is taking the control of the affairs on this coast,  will accompany
the vessels to this port.
These two trawlers which have
been brought from England are the
first of a large fleet that is either
under order or on the way here. The
Doughty interests will have a large
number of them and in addition to
these there will be a fleet of no
mean proportions under the control
of the Canada Fish & Cold Storage
Company located here. This will not
make up the full list, for it is anticipated that there will be others
brought out and before many
months have passed this port will
be the home of a considerable fleet
which will be ever increasing.
The two trawlers that are now
on their way here and should reach
port on Monday will proceed at
once to tlie wharves of the Canada
Fish & Cold Storage Company al
Seal Cove, where ice for the first
voyage will be taken  on.
It is probable that in view of ilie
fact that the Doughty interests have
not yet located their cold storage
plants in this city or on Porpoise
Harbor, where they are expected to
be erected, that the local plant may
be used in the handling of the fish
that .are taken. The equipment of
the Canada Fish & Cold Storage
Company is all in place and ready
for operations. The company is delaying starting until near the time
of the completion of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, when it will make
a use of that line for the shipping
of tho finished product. The Doughty
interests on the other hand have a
very well equipped plant on the
Queen Charlottes for canning nnd
for other uses as a station but have
not the cold storage facillittes. The
latter company may, therefore, take
advantage of the local cold storage
in the handling of the fish that are
b rough I In in Ihe trawlers now on
the coast.
The arrival of these vessels will
be watched with interest. It will
mean the beginning in earnest of
the industry on this coast, end the
building up of a fishing population
in the city and the district. Prince
Rupert from now on will more and
more become the centre of the fishing industry on  this coast.

There returned to the city yesterday morning by the Grand Trunk I
Pacific steamer Prince Rupert, A.
B. McMaster and Mrs. McMaster,
who have been in the southern cities for a few days. Mr. McMaster
went south on business connected
with the winter schedule of the
steamers In ihis part of the territory of the company. The service
as arranged will in al! probability
be along the following lines for the
winter, when the company cuts the
service from the south to this port I
at the end of the month to one
steamer a week.
The service to Stewart and Granby Harbor, Massei and Naden Harbor and Skidegate will be carried
out by the Prince John, which will
leave Prince Rupert at 11 a.m. every Wednesday for Granby and
Stewart, returning at 10:30 p.m.
Thursday; for Masset and Naden
Harbor, leaving Prince Rupert at
midnight Friday, returning on -Sunday at 10 a.m.; and tor Skidegate,
leaving Sunday morning, returning
al  midnight Tuesday.
Mr. McMaster says ilia' in tin-
southern coast cities there is an Increased Interest shown in tiie city
of Prince Rupert and the' district of
which it is ihe centre. Tlie rame ol

the Grand Trunk Pacific offices on

Mr. McMaster says that It made
a magnificent showing, so much so
that there was a steady stream of
admirers stopping before the windows to inspect the products of tho
Nortli. In addition to that there
were numbers who came in and
sought further information with regard to the display and the part of
tlie country that it came from and
the general conditions there. There
was sufficient interest taken in the
exhibit to warrant the belief that as
a result of it there will be a goodly number of settlers come Into the
district to Investigate and to settle
upon tlie hind that has produced
such magnificent vegetables as are
theri  displayed.
Mr. McMaster says that there is
no question that the display ol the
actual production of the district is
the very best advertisement that the
lands of the Skeena and the    other
rts of i'ie country can gel. The
display put on in Vancouver was a
nroof of Iliat fact, to his mind.

London, Oct. 19.—Along a mountainous front covering the whole of
the northern frontier of Turkey for
a distance of two hundred miles

It   would   appear   as   if   Joe   D i.y-
ley,  the popular  b ixet   in   this    It:
will  appear In  I       ring  here again
iu :i short  time.
According to a -. n .- <f r bm
Tommy Bums, h ng  has been
fixed for the Bayley-Hylknd bout
in Calgary on Thanksgiving Day,
says the Victoria Colonist. Bayley
will leave here on Sunday, which
will give him abotil seven days in
Calgary before lie enters theTlng.
After his bout villi iiyiaini, Bay-
ley will likely go iii Edmonton, a
proposition being put on fool to
have him meet Scaler there early
in November, Then, If everything
goes right, he will jump to Prince
Ruperl anil taki on O'l.eary, I lie
Seattle Imy.
For the first time since his battle
with Pat Scott, Joe Bayley appeared
In fighting togs before a Victoria
gathering al a smoker beld in the
Labor Hall, l e boxed six fast
rounds witli "Cyclone" Scott, his
trainer, and Air. Hardwlck, the
local lightweight wrestler, who
threw Fred Smith ai ilio- lasi tournament here. The outstanding feature of the exhibition was that Hay-
ley showed himself to be in perfect
condition. lie was as fresh as a
daisy at the finish, his breathing
being almost normal.
Joe gave a clever exhibition, and
the first bout was worth seeing, for
"Cyclone" Scott not only has a good
fifteen pounds tlie better of Joe in
weight, hut is a good boxer himself.
In the second mill the vast improvement in tlie champion's work since
be first entered professional ranks
was seen, lie didn't try to hit his
man, and the limited space and slippery floor made it impossible for
him lo use much footwork, but he
could have knocked Hardwlck out
without, trouble if he had been fighting iu earnest. And Hardwlck, although his specialty is wrestling, is
no slouch with the padded mitts.
Tlie wrestler did most of the.
rushing and Bayley was content to
let him swing ai the air, or on his
guard. The champion made plenty
of openings and knew they were
there, but  let it  go at that.

Electrical Engineer From New York Is Young Lady   at Haysport   Met   With
In the City on Holiday
He     Is (Jiving  Sonic    Attention     to
Electricity at  the Same Time—
The Value of Railways.
Mr. C. O. Mailloux, a world famous electrical consulting engineer,
who has assisted in tlie building of
railways in Russia, Italy, Soutli
America and half a dozen other
countries, arrived yesterday iu
Prince Rupert. He is seeing for
himself the great inland waterways
of British Columbia. Incidentally,
he win gather such Information as
he can of the possibilities of power
fur industrial concerns in tlie province. Representing as he does many
wealthy clients all over the world,
the results of his trip may at some
future time, be of considerable importance to British Columbia.
lie was delighted with his trip
nortli from Victoria and Vancouver, and sees in the charming
waterway a great tourist future.
Mr. Mailloux has a great fondness
for traveling by water, having
crossed the Atlantic ocean sixty
times. His headquarters are in
New York, where his firm has had
the contract for electrifying such
Important buildings as the fifty-
seven storey Woolworth building,
the Plaza Hotel, the Waldorf-Astoria, and practically every big hostelry of prominence in  the city.
"Although I am no authority on
British Columbia, this I db know,"
says the visitor, "that prosperity
cannot, precede these arteries ofi
travel, and if it conies at all, must
follow them. So I think the Grand
Trunk Pacific, which is building
to Prince Rupert, and the Canadian
Northern and the Canadian Pacific,
are doing a great deal for the country, and after they have opened
up the country the province will be
in a position to utilize the great
water power whicli is now lying
, "in the eastern part of Canada,
along the SI. Lawrence river, a half
a million horse power is awaiting
development," said lie. "That is,
this enormous power is lying idle
until it becomes available for industrial use. It i» H"l I't all impossible that a similar condition exists in British Columbia, and if so,
it only needs time and population
to bring it Into the service of man.
I am not acquainted with Hie province, however, and know only what
I have been told. If 1 have the
time, I may Ionic intii I lie subject
while I am  lien- "
Iu addition to being known in
a majority of tlie civilized nations
of Hie world, Mr. Mailloux ii- one
of ihe vice-presidents of the committee on organization for the elei ■
iriiii cOngrcss to be held in San
Francisco during the Panama Canal
i >; Ibltlon in September, 1915. His
jurisdiction exti nils over the committee's international relations, to
which position in- was chosen by
reason of his wide acquaintance
among men of bis craft and becausi
in- ii  n  master of six languages,
"British Columbia, doubtless, has
greal possibilities fur ihe manufacturer nnd others Who are looking
for cheap power." .Mr. Mailloux
said. "Ai ihe presenl time this
power is nrobablj nol available becausi there Is no market. Population and development will supply
Hie deficiency
Sad Death—No Inquest
.Miss A iolet Casterton, Aged 18, Fell
from Plank Way, Stunning Herself mill Drowning in Creek.
A sad accident occurred at Hays
port on Thursday night which has
cast a gloom over the little fishing
town. Miss Violet, Casterton, aged
only eighteen years, met her death
under the saddest of circumstances
She lias for some time been employed In the hotel at that place and on
Thursday evening after her work
was completed left to visit a friend,
Mrs. DuBols, who lives only a very-
short distance from tlie hotel. The
route leads along an elevated path
way. About twenty feet from the
hotel the girl slipped off the path
and falling a distance of about
seven feet, had struck lief head on
a log and stunned herself. At that
point there is a small creek which
runs under the pathway and in this
she was drowned.
This is the only explanation that
can be given for the accident and
all the circumstances connected with
it. point to this as the only solution
of the death. ,
Had anyone been there to have
assisted her she would probably
have suffered little from the fall
above a short period of unconsciousness. The provincial police have investigated the matter and in view
of all the circumstances do not consider an inquest, necessary.
The deceased was highly respected in the village. She was seen to
pass out of the door on her way to
the neighbor's and no uneasiness
was felt until the next morning
when she did not appear at the hotel. One of the residents of the place,
walking along the plank way early
in the morning, discovered the body
immersed in the small stream. Miss
Casterton has no friends here. She
lias a brother and a sister and an
aunt in Vancouver, and they have
been communicated with in the matter.

The Dominion        Government
steamer Lillooet of the hydrographic
survey is in port. Captain Musgrave,
the officer In charge of the vessel
and of the hydrographic work on
this coast, is preparing to leave for
the south with his vessel for the
winter months. He has been fearful of getting sufficient coal to
carry out his plans of getting soutli
to Esquimau, but has found that ho
can secure it, and will get away In
a   few  days.
Tlie season's work has been very
satisfactory, says Captain Musgrave.
The work of locating the shore line
of Hecate 81 raits on ll«i Queen Charlotte side has been In hand and
there has been good progress made.
This is all preliminary to the survey of the Hecate 'Straits, which
will be done as quickly as it is possible to do it. When ii is taken Into
account what a tremendous shore
line there is to follow and the fact
that the soundings for shallow water have to be taken for a very considerable distance oul from thai
coast il can be easily understood
thai there are many season's work
ahead of a single vesseL

The Coming Smelter City of the North
Truly, the future of Granby Bay Is bright. The absolute perma-
nancy Is one of the most gratifying features—as tlie supply of copper
ores In Northern British Columbia Is practically Inexhaustible.
Only a few choice lots are being offered for sale In the Town of
Granby Bay, and there is not much doubt that they will be sold quickly.
Grasp tlie fact that ore can be produced at Granby Bay much
cheaper than in places where large profits are now being made In mining
and smelting. Then you can appreciate what an opportunity confronts
you In the chance to buy property In such a place at first prices. There
is no earthly reason why Granby Bay will not be the big Important
mining town of British Columbia—and that means a rapid raise in property values.
Property is cheap In Granby Bay now. Get our prices and you will
get a lot. For prices, terms and further information, address
