W. B. Tully and William Grant of Foley,
Welch & Stewart Company
Were Making Passage of the Canyon
in  Small  Itoat    No One
Saw the Accident
W. H. Tully, port engineer for
Foley, Welch & Stewart's steamers,
and William Grant were drowned in
the Canyon of the Skeena River on
Wednesday. The full particulars
can never be known as no one is believed to have witnessed the accident.
The boat in which the two men
were making the trip was found not
far from Hankin's Riffle. It is presumed, therefore, that the men were
there thrown from the boat.
The details, as far as known here,
have been received at Foley, Welch
& Stewart's offices here from Captain S. B. Johnson, who is In command of the river fleet.
On the last trip of the Skeena, in
the absence of regular officers, Captain Johnson, the commander of the
fleet and W. H. Tully, the port engineer, went in charge.
A report that the Omineca's engines must have been in some trouble about Kitsumkalum, must have
been received after the Canyon was
passed and Mr. Tully and Grant
started down in a boat to join the

Mr. Tully was a very competent
engineer. He came north on the
Caledonia tliree years ago and, after
serving for a time on her, was appointed two years ago as port engineer for the Foley, Welch & Stewart
steamers. He was unmarried, but
his mother lives in Los Angeles.
About Mr. Grant, little is known
by the company. It is not known
where his relatives live.
Hon. Fred Peters, K. C, Will Practice Law in Prince Rupert—
Is to lie City Solicitor
Hon. Fred Peters, K. C, formerly
of Victoria, has arrived in the city
and is about to open an office for the
practice of law here. Mr. Peters
was formerly premier of Prince Edward Island and has had a very distinguished career as a solicitor. He
has taken an office in the Exchange
Block and In addition to general
practice will act as city solicitor.
The trip to this city was the first
occasion on which Mr. Peters had
made tb# voyage north along this
coast. He was delighted with It and

house here.
First Court Case
In the city police court this morning Fred Peters K. C, the new city
solicitor made his first appearance.
The charge was one of careless blasting against Mr. Mclnnes. The defendant did not put up any defence and
was fined $10.

The skin of what appears to have
been an albino in the porcupine family, is in the possession of W. S.
Benson, of the Atlantic Realty Company, in this city. The skin was received from Hartley Bay, on this
coast, and is practically white
throughout. Some of the hair is
slightly yellowed, probably through
contact with the timber and plant
life amidst which it lived. The color
of the hair is naturally a decided

who have seen this one and students
of natural history would do well to

Annexation of the

Imperial Conference in
(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, May 19.—Hon. VV. S.
Fielding said in the House on Tuesday that nothing official had . yet
been done by the government respecting the proposal for annexation
of the Bahamas to Canada, but the
question would probably be broached
by the colonial office to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in London during the Imperial Conference. There is little likelihood of any steps being taken by
Canada in furtherance of the scheme
as it is not viewed with favor by the
government here.

It Has Been Found Necessary to Blast
Out Rock for Concrete
Large Musses of Stone Give Trouble
at the Government Waterfront
The Westliolme Lumber Company
this morning started an expert diver
at, work in blasting rock out where
the reinforced concrete piles must
go for the provincial government
wharf. Various plans have been
tried to overcome the difficulty met
with. It has lately been decided to
blast the "coyotes" out of the way.
Accordingly, the first shot was fired
this morning to make way for a pile
of about 85 feet in length that Is
ready to go into place.
The piles used in this work are
the longest of their kind, it is believed, that have ever been used. The
government in deciding upon these
took what is supposed to be the most
modern system known. There have
been difficulties to overcome by the
contractors but they are mastering
them. Diver Clarke will be able,
it is thought, to solve the question of
getting the way cleared for the piles
so that the work should progress
steadily now.

Local Association Opens a New Season
Under Host Encouraging
Xew Members Will lie Given Training Under Experienced  Shots
—Increasing Membership
A meeting of the Prince Rupert
Civilian Rifle Club was held last
night for the purposes of reorganizing and arranging a programme for
the season. The greatest enthusiasm
prevailed and the clug promises to
have a very good year's sport. The
club is open to receive new members, who must be British subjects.
A memorandum was presented by
the secretary of matters requiring
deliberation. Among these was the
enrolment of memuers for the year,
which was completed forthwith. As
the club is organized under the Dominion regulations, all must be British subjects. All members present
immediately took the oath of alle-
glence and  signed  the roll..
The targets will be put in condition at once. Four targets have
been brought over and will be fixed
in time for a shoot on Saturday. The
remainder of the targets will be attended to at the ranges on Saturday
by a committee.
A statement of the accounts will
he obtained from Mr. Agnew, treasurer for the period just expired,, in
order to liquidate the indebtedness
of the club.
The Veterans Association are desirous of obtaining permission to
shoot off a match on Sunday next.
This proposition was approved on
seeing that it is a likely manner in
which to obtain new members. The
rifles are to be kept within reach of
all members and kept clean.
A finance and a range committee
were appointed. Messrs. Partington,
Beatty and Godson were named as
the range committee, and Messrs.
G. Cameron, Potter and Woods as
the finance committee.
It was also suggested that a military ball should be given with a view
to increasing the membership.
Messrs. Partington and Beatty
constituted themselves a committee
to meet representatives of the Earl
Grey Rifles and the Veterans Association with a view to joining interests in such an undertaking.
A programme for the season was
decided upon. Circulars were read
inviting the club to enter Into the
Canadian Rifle League and the Do-
mining of Canada Prize Competitions. Prizes were then offered by
Mesrs. Godson, Partington, Potter

Celebration Committee Will Bold Programme on the G.T.P.
Events Are Intended Largely for the
Children—Big Events Held
Until July  1
The celebration committee having
in charge the 24th of May celebration has arrangements well in hand.
It has been decided to take over the
Indian Band competition, which will
be held in the Empress Theatre and
which promises to be a grand success. The Indian bands are practicing steadily and the keenest rivalry is bound to exist.
It has been decided by the committee to limit the sports for May
24 to as few a number of events as
possible in order not to interfere
with the celebration on July 1. For
that reason the sports on May 24
will be largely confined to the
school children.
It has been decided to hold the
programme on the Grand Trunk
Pacific wharf between the main
freight shed and Foley, Welch &
Stewart's. This, A. E. McMaster, the
local agent, agreed to clear for the
occasion. The committee, in view
of his kindness passed a vote of
thanks to him.
The piles of rails will be fitted up
as a stand from which to view the

Probably no more reassuring fact
as to the Importance of Prince Rupert in an industrial and commercial
way could be given publicity to:
than the campaign which the city of
Boston has inaugurated to secure the
entrance to that city of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and the consequent
utilization of it as an Atlantic port.
The fact that the most prominent
men In Boston are signing a petition
and are backing up the move to have
inducements held out to the Grand
Trunk Pacific to enter that city, is
an assurance that they are convinced
that It means vast things for Boston.
What Is true of the coupling up
with Boston, which must only be
one of the eastern ports at best, is
doubly true of Prince Rupert, the
port of the west. The citizens of
Boston realize what the opening up
of this vast western field through
which the Grand Trunk Pacific
passes must be to that city and Its
commerce. If It means so much to
a place on  the    eastern     seaboard,
what must it mean to the natural
outlet, the port on the Pacific?
The campaign which Boston is
carrying on is of importance to
Prince Rupert. It is bringing this
port to the attention of the people
of the New England states as it
never was brought before. The results cannot fail to be felt here.
Mr. Kugler has received copies of
the Boston American, which is taking a prominent part in the campaign and has exhibited them In the
window of his office on Second
The need of presenting Prince Rupert's opportunities to the world
were never greater than at present.
The more the transportation and industrial questions of today are
looked at, the more fully is it seen
that this port's future is something
that even the most optimistic are
liable to fall far short In estimating.
It is not going to be a long wait for
population in this city. Population
will assuredly flow into the place as
the advantages are fully realized.
Roosting the City
G. A. McNichoIl, superintendent of
the Grand Trunk Pacific at this
point, who is now in the south on
business, has in interviews given the
different papers given good boosts
for the city of Prince Rupert.
Good Fishing
W. R. Lord, the canneryman from
the Naas, has been In the ctiy for a
few days this week. He is busily
employed putting up spring salmon
at his cannery. The season Is proving a very good one.

Martin Burrill is Not in Favor of Efforts
to Build Up Trade With
China and Japan.
He Would Favor Prohibition of Japanese Immigration into
the Dominion
(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, May 19.—That Canada
should abandon its efforts to develop
a large trade with Japan and China
and adhere to the new treaty between Great Britain and Japan, and
restrict or prohibit Japanese immigration, was the policy enunciated by
Martin Burrill, representing Yale-l
Cariboo in the House of Commons,
last night.
The occasion of the enunciation of
this policy was when Hon. W. S.
Fielding moved the House into committee to consider the resolutions
extending for two years the existing
trade agreement with Japan.
Mr. Burrill declared that the Oriental trade was chimerical. During
the last tliree years Canada exported
less to Japan than during the pre
ceding three years. Hon. Mr. Field'
ing read a letter he addressed to the
Japanese consul general, giving the
reasons of the ministers for desiring
to continue the present arrangement
for two years. The Japanese government had faithfully lived up to the
promise to restrict immigration to
Conciliation Board at Fernie Fails to
Bring About an Agreement.
Conciliation   Hoard  in  Coal  Miners'
Dispute,  Failed  to Gain
The conciliation board, dealing
with the cial strike in the Crow's
Nest, has closed its session at Fernie temporarly, after a fruitless attempt to get the parties together
upon a proposition submitted by
Chairman Gordon. Last Friday afternoon wat spent in discussing this
proposition behind closed doors, and
when it was found that it was useless at this stage to try further to do
anything in the line of conciliation
the board adjourned at the call of
the chairman.
Dr. Gordon and Mr, MoNiven
who has acted as secretary to the
board, departed for their homes on
the east bound train in the evening.
The operators also left town for
their homes, leaving the executive
of the mine workers to remain a
few days attending to matters pertaining to the district affairs.
The proposition submitted by
Chairman Gordon, and which was
the basis of the afternoon negotiations, seems tno to have met with
favor from either side.
The chairman stated after adjournment that he had not hoped
too strongly for its acceptance, as
the inquiry had not gone far enough
to get resulls that would satisfy
either party. He had made il in the
interest, of peace before taking a
long adjournment, not wishing to
lose any opportunity of securing an
agreement   between  the  parties.
In adjourning the board, the
chairman  complimented  the parties
Bospital Board   is   in Need of Funds

New Set of  Bylaws Has  Been  Prepared and Will He Presented
at Extraordinary Meeting
At the last meeting of the hospital
board, held on Wednesday afternoon
in P. I. Palmer's office, the question
of finances again came up. While
the instltuption has large assets and
is In a financially strong position
the board has difficulty in meeting
the expenses out of current revenue.
This is accounted for in a large
measure from the fact that bills in
connection with the building and for
furnishing have to be met now, with
but the general revenue to fall back
upon until such time as the city
makes its grant and other moneys
come in.
The finance committee was authorized to go into the matter with
the manager of the Union Bank,
with which institution the business
is done.
A donation of $50 was received
from Mr. Broderick, manager of the
Union Bank.
A resolution thanking tlie donor
was passed  unanimously.
The board was notified that Mrs.
Eggert had donated linen and dishes
for the use of the hospital.
This thoughtfulness on the part of
Mrs. Eggert was commented upon by
the members of the board and a
resolution of thanks passed.

Sailor King Will Inspect the Fleet in
Conjunction With Coronation
Elaborate   Preparations   Are   Being
Made for This Feature of
the Proceedings
.Next to the coronation Itself in
Westminster Abbey, the most interesting coronation sights will be the
review of the fleet at Spithead and
the procession of their Majesties
through  the streets of London.
As regards the naval review there
is no doubt that added interest will
attach to this magnificent spectacle.
His Majesty is a sailor King, and it
is notorious that the navy occupies
today a larger place than ever before
in the hearts and thoughts of his
subjects. Moreover great changes
have come over the navy since the
last coronation review in 1902, and
there can be no doubt whatever that
In magnitude and strength the forthcoming spectacle will outstrip all Its
predecessors. Over 500 warships will
stretch across the water from Spithead to Cowes. The United States,
Germany, Russia, France and Japan
will send squadrons under princes or
great admirals.
In the Home fleet the line wlii be
headed by the new battleship Neptune, flying the flag of Sir Francis
Bridgeman. The other Dreadnoughts
will be the Bellerophon, Collingwood, St. Vincent, Superb, Teme-
raire, Vanguard, Hercules and Colossus. The original Dreadnought
will be present as an indlvdual unit,
'ihe first cruiser squadron will include the Dreadnoughts Indefatigable, Indomitable, Invincible and Inflexible, and possibly the Lion, now
completing at Davenport. The Atlantic fleet will be represented by
the Formidable, Implacable, London,
Prince of Wales, Queen and Venerable, and the Mediterranean fleet by
the Cornwallis, Duncan, Exmouth,
Russell and Triumph. The attendant cruiserd squadron of each fleet
will be in the lines and five destroyer flotillas and torpedo-boats.
On Saturday morning the King
and Queen will embark in the Royal
yacht Victoria and Albert, escorted
by other vessels. Their Majesties
will pass up and aown the lines,
greeted with salutes from all the
ships and shore batteries, and they
will remain in Cowes roads till Monday  morning.
The Illuminations on Saturday
evening will be a magnificent spectacle. The hundreds of warships
will be outlined by electric lights
i-nd hundreds of searcnlights will
form archways in the heaven.
The only way to properly witness
it will be from the deck of a steamer.
Stands and windows on shore are of
little use. The spectator must be
taken out to sea and steam up and
down between the unes of battleships; and if the beautiful finale of
the illumination of the fleet is to be
appreciated he must remain on the
water until a late hour dependent
for food and comfort on the resources of the vessel on which a
place has been taken.
ticular prison  from  which  the  man
was discharged.
"But it was understood that he
had a sort of moral right to it. Now
the moral right will disappear, and
the gratuities will go to the central
body, which will use up these sums,
of course, for the men's benefit.
"These gratuities, with the grant
of £7,000 which the government is
making, will probably pay all the expenses involved in the setting up of
the new body, so that no fresh burden will be cast on the existing societies, whose work should be assisted by the centralization and co-ordination of their efforts.
"Of course, there will still remain
the obstacle of the natural reluctance of employers to engage ex-
convicts. It has been difficult hitherto to find other than laboring
work for these men, as people hesitate to give them positions of trust."
The assistant secretary of the
eeentral committee of Dicharged Prisoners' Aid Societies said that there
were about one hundred societies
engaged in the work of befriending
ex-prisoners. Many of them, however, dealt with both ex-convicts and
men released after short sentences.
He also stated that the Home Office had under consideration a
scheme to set up a new authority to
deal with the short sentence men.
This body will probably be drawn
largely from the central council,
strengthened by Home Office representatives.
"But as to a new career of nope
for convicts," he said, "to my mind
that could only be achieved by planting them on a Pacific island—giving
them capital, if need be, for a start
—setting a gunboat to look after
them and see they did not escape,
and leaving them to work out their
own salvation.
"It would be cheaper in the end."

Herr   Friedlander   Proposes   Establishment of Well Equipped
Observatory at Vesuvius
New  System   is  Xow  in  Operation—
Government  Make Grant of
$7,(Mto to Scheme
The new scheme for the treatment
of convicts inaugurated by Mr. Winston Churchill has been put into operation. During the month of April
about a hundred convicts were released. Some of them may not want
assistance on leaving prison, but
they will all be handed over to the
care of the newly-formed Central Association, whose surveillance will
take tho place of the odl system of
ticket of  leave.
tinder the old method of working
a convict could earn from two to six
pounds during his term of Imprisonment. On. his release half of this
was generally used for his benefit
through the agency of a prisoner's
aid society or similar body. But now
the new central body will appropriate the whole of the money earned
by the prisoner. If the association's
efforts do benefit him, he will certainly get his money's worth. But if
these efforts fall his money will have
been swallowed  up.
A press representative discussed
the new scheme with the assistant
secretary to the prison commissioners, In the absence of Mr. Basil
Thompson, the secretary.
"The convict," he said, "has never
had a legal claim to this money,
which has hitherto been paid on the
condition that half was administered
through the aid society for the par-
For some time past Herr Iniman-
uel Friedlander has been working
for the establishment in this city of
an international institute to carry on
a continuous ad systematic investigation of volcanic phenomena. An
observatory has existed on Vesuvius
for many years, but from the insufficient means at its disposal, no extended and systematic work has
hitherto been possible. Such an institute as Herr Friedlander contemplates will be provided with the necessary laboratories and instruments
for the regular measurement of temperatures on Vesuvius, for the periodical collection and analysis of the
gases, and for the registration and
observation of local earthquakes of
a volcanic character, not only during
the eruptive phases of the volcano,
but also throughout its periods of
comparative calm. It would form a
training school for volcanologists, ns
well as give opportunity for other
scientific persons to make observations.
The practical and scientific value
of such an institute would be very
great. In most volcanoes eruptions
occur according to a regular sequence of events, and it is more than
probable that a careful and exact
registration of phenomena may enable the observers to foresee the
time and magnitude of an eruption.
By a closer observation also of fu-
marolic activity and of the transformation of rocks, it would be possible to form a clearer conception of
ore beds.
After communicating his plan to
the last International Geological congress held at Stockholm,pand obtaining the approval of the congress,
Herr Friedlander set to work to
canvass among the scientific societies of every nation for supporters
He has now secured 62 eminent
names, among them 25 Italians, 19
Germans and 3 Englishmen. The
Royal Academy of Naples and the
Geological committee of Italy have
given their adherence to the scheme,
some sixty of the most prominent
scientific and political personages of
Italy are forming a committee to
promote II; and the Italian government will shortly decide as to what
official support can be given also.
Herr Friedlander himself has contributed $40,000 towards the erection of a building.

The only Nain Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite in British Columbia.    Does that start you thinking?
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact is a very important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the hub
ef the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were doing when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
— o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity of Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Grand Trunk Pacific has put its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
believe the company will do as much
for townsites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots In Ellison. If
you desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
STUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order class with his wares. ELLISON is In the Missouri class. Therefore, I am -not telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that can be readily verified.
STUDY      THAT      MAP.—If      you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,     then     you
should put your money into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound Investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not interested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with  the exception  of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. 'Sou may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at. the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is   now   being  opened   up,   and   for
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both by rail and water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. "You must
hurry if you want one.
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. 1 am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and vz;i0 for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the
balance on easy terms;  no interest.

Death of J. C. Naybrick in  Rossland
Revives Interest in Famous
Son   of  Convicted   Woman    Had   un
Important Part Without His
There died in Rossland recently at
the age of 29, James Chandler May-
brick, only son of the late James
Maybrick, of Liverpool. Behind this
simple announcement lies the whole
of the Maybrick case, one of the
most sensational trials of the last,
three decades. To those who are
familiar with its progress and some
of its antecedents it Is a vivid reminder of one of those ironic incidents which are commonly supposed
to occur nowhere outside the pages
of the tragic drama.
While she was nursing her sick
husband, Mrs. Maybrick (convicted
In England of poisoning "the late
James Maybrick" in 1889) one day
sent out her two children to take air
with their nurse. The maid had
the younger, little Glayds, In a perambulator; by her side walked
James Chandler Maybrick, who at
that time was a sturdy little fellow
of eight, rejoicing at home in the pet
diminutive name of "Bobo."
On this fateful day, "Bobo," eager
to place a letter in the pillar box,
was given by his nurse a packet she
had received from her mistress to
post. He dropped it in the mud. Of
small events great fates may hang.
The nurse picked up the letter, endeavored to brush the dirt away,
made it worse, and then went Into
the postoffice to obtain a new envelope. She there opened the envelope she carried and drew from It
the following letter:
"Since my return I have been
nursing- M. day and night. He is sick
unto death. The doctors held a consultation yesterday, and now all depends upon how long his strength
will hold out. Both my brothers-in-
law are here, and we are terribly
anxious.    I cannot answer your let
ter fully today, my darling but relieve your mind of all fear of discovery now and for the future."
It was addressed to a Mr. Brierley,
whom Mrs. Maybrick had met in
London. At the trial it was declared
by her accusers that at this time
she was dosing her husband, who
suffered from liver and nerve troubles, with minute doses of arsenic, in
order to be able to marry Brierley.
The letter was written In pencil. The
nursemaid did not post it. She folded it again, replaced it in her pocket,
and, taking the first opportunity, put
it in the hands of Mr. Michael Maybrick, her mistress's brother-in-law.
On the "sick unto death" letter
the prosecution relied as one of the
strongest links in their chain of evi
dence, and it no doubt helped to
condemn a woman whose conviction
occupied the thoughts of Lord Chief
Justice Russell (who had defended
her when he was Sir Charles) almost
to the hour of his death. He never
believed her guilty, and was forever
casting about for some new and effective means to redress what he believed was a grlevlous miscarriage of
of justice.
It is interesting.in view of the
death of "Bobo" to reconstruct some
of Mrs. Maybrick's history in the
months Immediately preceding the
trial. James Chandler Maybrick was
born in 1882, the year after Mrs.
Maybrick's marriage in London to
Mr. James Maybrick, whom she met
In America when he was there on
business visits. After their seven
years' marriage it fel lout that husband and wife had repeated quarrels
and Mr. Maybrick, after the Grand
National of 1889, gave his wife a
black eye. James Maybrick was a
Liverpool cotton merchant, and he
died of arsenical poisoning at Bat-
tlecrease House, Garston, Liverpool,
on May 11, 1889. That Is to say, his
wife was convicted of poisoning him.
On the other hand, and since, the
view has been stoutly maintained
that the gastro-enteritls—or congestion or acute inflammation of stomach and bowels—from which he
died, was set up by other irritant,
and was the effect of a cold contract
ed through getting wet at Wirral
races. The defence also contended
at the trial that the mudstain on the
letter was a sheer invention devised
by the nursemaid as an excuse for
opening her mistress's letters.
After the arrest of Mrs. Maybrick,
her" children were taken charge of by
her husband's relatives. Her death
sentence, as everyone recollects, was
commuted to penal servitude for life.
Mrs. Maybrick spent seven years at
Woking and eight at Aylesbury, and
from Aylesbury convict prison she
was released in February, 1904. She
tells in her book, "My i'itteen Years
Lost," how the news of her coming
liberation reached her. Her twenty
years of imprisonment, reduced in
the ordinary way for good conduct,
to fifteen, expired on July 25, 1904.
The governor notified iier how the
law had taken its course.
"For a moment," she wrote, "I
failed to grasp the full meaning of
these words, but when I did—how
shall I describe the mingled feelings
of joy and thankfulness, of relief
and hope, with which I was overwhelmed? I returned to my cell
dazed by the unexpected message for
which for so many long weary years
1 had hoped and prayed."
The first Dreadnought of the new
type has already been superseded as
the latest and finest sea fighting machine, though she has only been In
commission five years—she was
launched six years ago- -Admiral
William May hauled down his flag
three weeks ago, and the original
Dreadnought is to be taken in hand
for a thorough refitting.
An even stronger vessel than
e'ther will soon be ready. This is the
Orion, which is nearly 5,000 tons
larger than the Dreadnought. The
rate at which improvements are being effected In the construction of
these tremendous battleships means
that their period of usefulness Is
growing shorter.
Formerly warships remained for
years as first-class fighting machines
but every few years nowadays practically news ships are discarded.
During the present year no fewer
than nine are under orders to be
struck out.
E. G.  Warren Succeeds J.  E. McAllister at British Columbia Copper Company's Smelter
J. E. McAllister, wno has been
general manager of the Britisii Columbia Copper Company for the past
seven years, leaves shortly for New
York City, where he will become a
member of a firm of consulting engineers in mining. He will still be
connected with the British Columbia
Copper Company in the capacity of
consulting engineer and will visit
the properties every three months.
He will be succeeded as general manager by E. G. Warren.
During Mr. McAllister's seven
years' management of the British
Columbia Copper Company, It has
enjoyed a steady and healthy
growth.     Its  properties     have    in
creased seven times; its expanding
resources have been of an equal ratio and still growing, while the cor
poration is on a second dividend-
paying basis. And while he has had
able assistants, Mr. McAllister himself is responsible in no small way
for the progressive strides the company has made.
His departure from the active
sphere of Boundary mining, which
he has done so much to develop,
will be a matter of general regret
and his many friends will wish him
success in his new field.
Mr. Warren, who succeeds Mr. McAllister as general manager, is receiving congratulations of his many
friends on his promotion. Mr. Warren has been smelter superintendent
for a number of years and has kept
in close touch with the operations of
the company, frequently filling the
position of general manager during
Mr.  McAllister's absence.

sports, such as football, lacrosse and
kindred games are- nol the best,
competitive rifle shooting should
have a special fascination. It is a
gratifying fact that the young men
are taking very enthusiastically to
this form of sport, which has the
double advantage of giving healthy
exercise in the open air and also
fits a man to take part, should the
occasion ever arise, to act in defence
of his country. The club is recognized by the militia department and
assisted to a considerable extent by
the authorities.
Prince Rupert should have marksmen who should rank among tha
best in the world. The frontiei'
breeds such and this city should be

That an organized scheme of publicity when properly administered
can do a vast amount for any community, is proved by an incident
connected with settling up the land
about the city of Ladysmith, on Von-
couver Island. That the Vancouver
Island Development League has had
a very important share in the work,
is shown by the following clipping
from a Victoria paper:
"That Ladysmith is experiencing
an expansive movement is made very
apparent by a letter received at the
office of the local branch of the Vancouver Island Development League.
It states that during the present year
there has been something like 2,000
acres of land sold in five and ten-
acre blocks.
"That is significant enough in itself, but it becomes even more significant when it is accompanied by
the fact that many of those taking
up the land are people whose names
were sent to the secretary of the
league in Victoria by the secretary
of the local branch immediately on
their arrival in this country. Ladysmith and the surrounding district
was recommended to them as peculiarly suited to their vocation, and
the best tribute to the correctness
and adaptability of that district to
the requirements of these people is
thus furnished, by them taking up
the land for cultivation.
"Another matter in which the local branch of the league is deeply
interested is the exhibtion of a series
of photographs representative of the
city of Victoria and the various industrial and agricultural points on
the island in the leading offices of
the cities of Great Britain and Australia.
"In connection with this proposition a suggestion has come from an
Australian to the effect that two
frames, each holding views of a distinct class should be sent. One of
them should be devoted to displaying
the charms of city life, the architectural and Industrial features, and the
other to the. display of the agricultural, horticultural and country life
on Vancouver Island. The writer
affirms thai once these photographs
have, been sufficiently exhibited they
could easily find a permanent rost-
Ing place in one or the other of the
leading offices of Melbourne or Sydney. With a small card attached to
each frame It would be possible to
Identify the Development League as
the source of any Information that
they might elicit."
Prince Rupert must become the
distributing centre from which the

Manchuria and they suffered greatly.

Mr. Oxley, who left Vladivostok
on April 21, said the expulsion of
Chinese coolies began recently and
was being continued, three steamer
loads being sent out of Vladivostok
for Chefu shortly before he left.
This Is the outcome of the policy of
the new governor general of the
Amur province, who seeks to bring
Russian workmen to do the coolie
work of the province.
Siberian newspapers, referring to
the recent dispute between Russia
and China, state that the settlement
will not be lasting, and foreshadows an outbreak of hostilities. The
Harbin correspondent of the "Pria-
murie," says it Is generally recognized that China is merely postponing her Intention to wage war with
Russia on the Monolian frontier, the
Pekin government having an inflated
idea of the value of its military
strength. This paper, published at
Haborovsk, says that most of the
Chinese merchants are winding up
their affairs with Russian banks at
Harbin, stating that their news from
Mukden, Kirin and Tsitsihar is such
that with the increasing strength of
Hungghutze (reinforced by reason of
the plague) a second rising similar
to that of the Boxers, which would
not be easily subdued by the government, is anticipated.
King George Puts His Mark of Approval Upon Practice in a
Very Substantial Way
Following the ban on the hobble
skirt by the lord chamberlain, Inspired by the Queen, society is eagerly discussing Kin ig George's direction that future courts are to be
held one hour earlier.
The guests will begin to arrive at
half past eight o'clock instead of at
half past nine. The King and Queen
will enter the throne room at half
l.iest nine imtead of half past ton,
which will permit the ourts to be
brought to a close before midnight
instead  of  in  the  small  hours.
King George is a firm believer in
rally hours. He told a friend recently that a man cannot expect to

begin work till the day is half over
and he cannot begin early if he is
up half the night.    •
The ruling will have a far-reaching effect, leading to seven o'clock

to an appropriation of $500, providing that the Richmond council donates a like amount. A letter was

VANCOUVER — William Whyte,
vice president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, speaking before his
departure for the east, stated that
the immense resources of Vancouver
Island would become one of the big
feeders for the greater Vancouver
which is to be. On the Island, the
Canadian Pacific subsidiary line between Nanalmo and Alberni will
soon be completed. With its com
pletion, a direct route from Port
Alberni to Vancouver will be
brought about—a route a good deal
shorter than from Alberni to Victo
ria. "Already," said Mr. Whyte,
"the Vancouver wholesale houses
have the bulk of the trade on Vancouver Island. Victoria, of course,
is geographically the centre of the
island, but trade has been coming to
the mainland and with the opening
of the new road, of course, this trade
will greatly increase. This will mean
much to Vancmouver, for the island
s tremendously rich in natural resources, timber and minerals. It is
true, however, that it will take much
money to develop Vancouver Island."
VICTORIA—There appears to be
an unfounded idea afloat in some
quarters that the drydock scheme is
dependent on the building of ships of
the Canadian navy here. The dry-
dock at Esquimau will be constructed whether any of His Majesty's
Canadian ships are built here or not.
The plans of the Messrs. Bullen and

VANCOUVER—The British Columbia Methodist conference has decided to have a theological college at
Point Grey in affiliation with the
provincial universityb. This waB the
recommendation of the college committee, and it was accepted, practically as proposed. There was considerable debate on the subject, and
some amendments were added to the
suggested resolution. As passed, the
department of theology carried on at
present at Columbian college is to be
transferred in due course to the new
quarters at the university. A new
charter will be secured and Columbian college, will be continued as a
secondary school, where preparatory
courses will be taken. It was decided that steps should be taken to
raise $200,000 for the building
needs, with an additional $100,000
as the nucleus of an endowment
fund, and an amount is also to be
secured to place Columbian college
on a sound financial basis.
VANCOUVER — The Dominion
Government will shortly enter suit
against the Province of British Columbia for the possession of a large
portion of the provincial government
lands at Point Grey, and while it is
known that the value of the property
involved in the impending court
struggle between the two governments runs into hundreds of thousands of dollars, the exact extent of
the claims of the authorities at Otta-
way has not as yet been given out.
Instructions have, however, been
forwarded to the legal firm of Wade,
Wealler, McQuarrle and Martin, of
this city, to proceed against the provincial government, and it is understood that a writ will be issued very
shortly. The trouble between the two
governments arose out of the fact
that the limits of the new provincial
university site in Point Grey were
said to have encroached on the property set aside for the present Dominion wireless station at the tip of the
cape. Upon an investigation being
made by representatives of the Ottawa administration It was discovered, it was claimed, that the Dominion Government possessed rights
which extended not only over the
wireless site, but also Included a section in the municipality which has
been held for some years by the
Province of British Columbia. It Is
said that part of the provincial university site, as well as lots and acreage already disposed of at public
auction, may become involved in the
suit, as being part of the property
which the Dominion Government
claims belongs in reality not to the
government at Victoria, but rather
to that at Ottawa.

VICTORIA—Nothing definite has
as yet been heard locally regarding
the intentions of the Dominion Government in the matter of building
warships for the Canadian navy on
this coast. The Victoria Liberal association has communicated with Ottawa as a result fo a special meeting
of the executive just held. From the
provisions inserted in the plans and
specifications, upon which the tenders for the construction of warships were invited, no shipbuilder on
the Pacific coast, nor any firm which
might have contemplated the establishment of a plant here, could have
tendered with any hope of success.
This feature of the Dominion's naval
policy, which, while providing for
the stationing of war vessels in
Britisii Columbia waters, does not
insure their being built on this coast,
will now be brought to the attention
of the Federal authorities, in order
that the letting of the contracts for
the four cruisers and six destroyers
which are to be built, may, If possible, be delayed until such time as
arrangements can be made for those
to be located In British Columbia
being built on the Pacific.
VICTORIA—The establishment of
a seismological observatory In Victoria Is coming within ineasureable
distance, and the next step will be lo
enable F. Napier Denison, of the
meteorological bureau here, to go
east to lay the matter before his superiors and later to proceed to England to consult with scientists there.
Hon. WiHIam Templeman, minister
of mines, has taken a great Interest
in the matter, not only because of
the honor of having such an Institution in Victoria, but largely because
of the value it would be to the mining industry, it having been demonstrated that there is some subtle
connection between seismic phenomena and the occurrence of coal-mine
explosions. He is arranging with
his colleague, the mttster of marine,
that leave of absence shall be granted to Mr. Denison and that he shall
attend Important scientific conventions in England this summer as the
representative of Canada, leaving
here some time next month.

Arrested in Tacoma Lodging House
—Tells Pitiful Story
Peet Harper, a young woman of
19, richly dressed and apparently
well provided with money, was found
In an upper room of a lower C street
lodging house In Tacoma, smoking
opium.| She was placed under arrest by City Detective James Malone.
The officer had gone to the lodging house In search of some stolen
bedding and while walking through
the hallway smelled the smoke of
cooking opium emanating from the
room occupied by the girl. Apparently friendless and alone, the girl
broke down and wept bitterly at the
police station, stating it would be
taking her life to deprive her of the
richly ornamented and elaborate
layout, as It was "all she had to live
To her questioners, the girl told a
pitiful story, which, as the officer
said made him "feel almost ashamed
that it had fallen to his duty to arrest her."
She says she had been raised in
refinement and respectability, and
was wooed and won by a rich man's
son in Butte, Montana, some two
years ago.    The wealthy young hus-

was taken back to his parents' home,
while a liberal allowance was made
to keep her from want.
Alone and friendless, In a strange
city, the girl says she tried her hardest to remain satisfied with her lot.
The old affection, however, she says,
was too strong, and she formed tbe
habit of wandering around alone in
her lonely state, seeking relief In the
ordinary pleasures of life. She
formed the habit of visiting Chinese
chop suey restaurants, and when
shown the relief afforded by opium,
she says she found that she could
remain alone happily with her long
bamboo pipe and opium, and became

Cornwall paper on the career of
"Newsy" Lalonde, the best-known
hockey and lacrosse player In the
Dominion, who will play lacrosse for
Vancouver this season. Lalonde,
besides being the best home player
in the game, is probably the most
widely advertised athlete on the
continent. He was born in Cornwall, Ont., on October 31, 1887, and
is consequently in his 24th year. He
played his first lacrosse and hockey
at school and made his first out-of-
town trip in 1905, when he went to
Woodstock to play with the hockey
team of that town. He played his
first senior game in 1908. Lalonde
Is the greatest lacrosse and hockey
player in the game and according to
those who are In the know, will this
season draw down the largest salary
ever paid a lacrosse lpayer.
It has frequently been a matter
of wonder as to how Edward Lalonde
ever became known as "Newsy." It
came about this way. At the age of
14 years, after passing into the high
school, he apprenticed himself to the
printing trade in the office of the
Cornwall Freeholder, and he was not
long at the trade until the cognomen
was attached to him. As a rule it is
the vendors of newspapers who are
called the "newsies," but In the case
of Lalonde the term was applied to
a p inter's apprentice and, though
jokingly applied by his boy chums at
the time, the appellation has remained a steadfast one, and he is
better known as "Newsy" Lalonde
than by his Christian name.
In a game in which any brilliant
faetures were not conspicuous, the
lacrosse season was ushered in last
Saturday in the south at Recreation
Park when New Westminster met
and defeated the North Vancouver
combination by twelve goals to three.
This was the opening game of the
season and it was advertised as an
exhibition match. There could be
no question about it—It was certainly an exhibition. Before the game
was a few minutes old, the Ambitious City's representatives were a
demoralized team and they were
practically beaten from the beginning. They stood absolutely no
chance in any department and were
completely out-manoeuvred and outclassed. As a game it was only natural under such circumstances that
It would be below the average to
which the local crowds are accus-
' tomed. It failed to arouse excitement and after the first quarter
there was simply a passing interest
evinced in the one-sided affair.
The chaimpions literally played
rings around their opponents. At no
period was the Issue In doubt and if
New Westminster had settled down
to the game in grim earnest there is
no telling to what magnitude the
score for the Salmon Bellies might
have soared. The encounter was
really featureless. In not one single
phase of the match could the new
team boast of equality, to say little
of superiority.
The teams follow:
North Vancouver—Geo. D. Gibbons, J. McOonaghy, Ed. Carter, L.
Clarkson, W. McKeown, V. Green, E.
Mundy, E. Longfellow, A. Robert
son, Slater, E. Murray, R. Douglas
H. Horrobin.
New Westminster—S. Gray, C.
Galbraith, J. Howard, T. GIfford,
J. GIfford, Geo. Rennle, Cliff Spring,
W. Turnbull, Wintemute, P. Feeney,
GIfford   L. Turnbull, G. Spring.
North Vanoouver will play in Vancouver tomorrow in a second exhibition match to ascertain the place it
will have In the league this year.

Highest Paid Lacrosse Player in the
World—Lalonde Never Sold Newspapers," the Montreal Star reproduces a half-column article from a
One of the most remarkable years
in the betting on the English Derby
is in evidence in this year of grace.
Shetland, the raging favorite of but
a week ago, has receded, the unknown having dropped back from 11
to 2 to 100 to 8 against. Lord Bur-
goyne, M. Edward Blanc's other colt,
has, however, ascended the betting
ladder, and the best price procurable
about this animal now is 9 to 1
against, writes an old turfman.
The horse which has displaced
Shetland is Sunstar, the property of
Mr. J. B. Joel, which won the Two
Thousand Guineas. In the ordinary
course of events it is only appropriate that Sunstar should be on top in
the betting. This custom has generally prevailed for the past century
and on the form of all the horses
which will go to the post this year,
no other candidate deserves to occupy the position.
The second favorite is King William, out of Lord Derby's stable.
King William and Sunstar have never met, but Stedfast, also belonging
to Lord Derby, has run against Mr.
Joel's candidate, finishing second in
the Two Thousand Guineas. The
Hon. Geo, Lambton, who trains L. rd
Derby's horses, should now know
whether his candidates hold the key
to the situation regarding the outcome of the Derby. In a trial spin,
Stedfast beat King William, but reliable information reaches me that
the latter was not at his best and
that it will take some time before he
is ready for the Epsom event. If
In another canter at Newmarket,
King William proves superior to
Stedfast, the question will arise as
to the former being able to avenge
the defeat inflicted against the stable
by Sunstar.
This then brings us down to the
consideration of two horses. Sunstar or King William is the question.
Even at this early date, I am strongly Inclined to the chances of King
William, but will not make a final
prediction until the Sunday before
the Derby, when I shall be In a better position to write according to Information received from the most reliable sources in the Old Country.
As explained, I cannot possibly favor the chances of Shetland. He has
never run In public and in the eyes
of the world has no form whereon a
reasonable prediction of his finish in
the Derby could be made.

Some people may be laboring under the Impression that the big
thing at the coronation next June
will be King George. The real de-
vourer of the calcium light will be
Mr. Jack Johnson, of Chicago, automobile fiend extraordlnory and a
man  who  has  also been  known  to
spend some little time In the prize
ring. Jack is making big preparations for his trip to London, and up
to date has expended the insignificant sum of $3,482 on his golng-
away costume. Lil Artha announced
proudly that his wardrobe Included
numerous swell English walking
suits; several Prince Albert's, another bunch of street clothes and
plenty of dress suits. Also that he
had a different hat for every suit in
the collection.
"I do not intend to let any of
those dukes and lords over there
have anything on me," said Jack.
"I paid a big sum of money for the
outfit, and believe me there will be
some class of Lil Artha when he
strolls along the Strand."
Mr. Johnsing left for New York,
where he has to appear to defend
a suit brought by an Italian sculptor
for $4,000 for making a bust of the
heavy-weight champion. After this
legal matter is disposed of, Jack will
return to Chicago and prepare for
his automobile race-- with Emile
Brouard on May 20.
If there is anything left of him
after the race he, will immediately
start for London and the coronation.
PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given
that, under the authority contained
in section 131 of the "Land Act," a
regulation has been approved by the
Lieutenant-Governor in Council fixing the minimum sale prices of first
and second-class lands at $10 and $6
per acre, respectively.
This regulation further provides
that the prices fixed therein shall
apply to all lands with respect to
which the application to purchase is
given favourable consideration after
this date, notwithstanding the date
of such application or any delay that
may have oce'urred In the consideration of the same.
Further notice is hereby given
that all persons who have ponding
applications to purchase lands under
th' provisions of sections 34 or 36
of the "Land Act" and who are not
willing to complete such purchases
under the prices fixed by the aforesaid regulation shall be at liberty to

Victoria, B. C, April 3rd, 1911.
Changes Proposed in the Laws Governing Railroads in the
Some of the Alterations Which the
Minister Has  Introduced
into the House
A number of important amendments to the Railway Act are proposed by Hon. G. P. Graham. There
are ten main points affected:
1. Provision Is made for a joint
board to hear crossing disputes between Provincial and Dominion railways and to order them to Interchange traffic. This section comes
from a suggestion by Chairman
Leitch, of the Ontario Municipal and
Railway Board; the provision Is applicable to all provinces having similar boards. The Joint hoard Is to
be composed of one member from the
Dominion and one from the Provincial body.
2. In future, telegraph, telephone
and express companies will be required to make annual returns in regard to their operations, as Is now
done by railways. The minister is
given power at any time he desires
to order returns from railways, in
regard to accidents.
3. Where a railway, which has
been chartered by this Government,
Is allowed to fall Into dilapidation,
the Government must step In and
declare that any subsidy paid to the

Operations In Windy Arm .Section of the Province
There will be unusual mining development in the Windy Arm district
In Northern British Columbia and
the Southern Yukon during the coming summer, according to Col. J. H.
Conrad, says the Province. The
colonel, accompanied by his general
manager Mr. Alfred Watson, is at
the Hotel Vancouver on his way
north after conferring with Sir William Mackenzie and other eastern associates.
"Besides prospecting work, on
many individual claims there will be

Thse two claims (Nugget Gulch and
China Creek) are now in charge of
W. Bowron who is acting on behalf
of Beach Lascelle.
The hydraulic miners anticipate a
splendid season as a result of the
heavy snowfall. The weatther is
cold and the season backward, but
work is in good shape, and as soon
as the water begins to run the miners will be ready for It.
I. I. Felker has returned from the
east, and Is now preparing for the
summer work on Perkins Gulch,
Lightning Creek. This hydraulic
claim was prospected last year, and
was purchased last fall by the present owner. Mr. Felker's other property at Worniald Creek is to be reopened, Harry Edens and a gang of
being at work there. The work of

so said James Cronin, the most conservative of mining engineers, in an
interview   In   Vancouver   on   his   way to Prince Rupert.
The News-Advertiser further says:
A man who believes in a rosy future for the north, particularly the
Hazelton district, is Mr. James Cronin, a mining operator of Spokane.
Interviewed at. the Hotel Vancouver, Mr. Cronin said that owing to the
demands of the railway contractors for space on the river steamboats
in order to get in supplies, he found he could not get in supplies for his
own camp, situated in the Babine Mountains, several hundred miles
from Hazelton. He stated that he had decided to abandon operations
until he could get the necessary steamboat accommodation. "Meantime"
he added, "I shall busy myself looking for properties in northern Britisii
Columbia,  in  whose mining future  I have the utmost confidence."

Prominent Bunker Expects Northern
Territory to Produce About
$10,000,000 This Season
"From Information which I have

I believe that the gold output of Interior Alaska this season should he
close to $10,000,000," said W. H.
Parsons, a prominent banker, In discussing the probable gold production
of northern camps.
"I look for operators in the Fairbanks district to clean up approximately $3,500,000. The Koyukuk
district should produce about $1,-
000,000 and other camps in that part
of Alaska $500,000 more. Best advices from the Iditarod indicate a
clean-up of between $4,000,000 and
$5,000,000. My estimate does not
take Into consideration Nome.

All   Open   Letter  from   the   Vetert
Statesman to Finance Minister Fielding
The Montreal Gazette prints an
open letter from Sir Charles Tupper
addressed to Hon. W. S. Fielding.
Sir Charles begins by saying that,
being nearly ninety years of age, he
thought that he was out of public
life, but as Mr. Fielding found it
easier to misrepresent and disparage
him than to reply to the unanswerable speech of Mr. Sifton, he feels
compelled to notice some of the remarks made by the minister of finance. ■ He cannot accuse Mr. Fielding of lack of courage in denying
that he had advanced or advocated
annexation to the United States, and
then proceeded to point out that in
1868, after Joseph Howe had exhausted every means of defeating
confederation, and decided to make
the best of it, Mr. Annand, the then
proprietor \>f the Halifax Morning
Chronicle, proposed to Howe to apply to the United States. Mr. Howe
rejected the proposal with scorn,
but Fielding remained with Annand,
and supported those who hounded
Howe to his death and drove him to
an untimely grave.
In 1872 the opponent of confederation were unable to elect a single
member to oppose the government of
which Mr. Howe and Sir Charles
were members. In 1886, when Mr.
Fielding carried the province in a
desperate effort to break up the
union, Sir Charles went out to Canada in the following year and cured
this folly by obtaining the support
of 16 out of 21 members from Nova
Scotia for the government of Sir
John A.  Macdonald.
Sir Charles then discusses the
fisheries question, quoting Sir Alan
Aylesworth, as to the permanent
value of the modus Vivendi arranged
by Mr. Chamberlain and himself.
Proceeding, he points oout that Sir
John A. Macdonald% espousal of
reciprocity was entirely due to the
necessity of fightln gthe continental
free trade ideas of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. He charges Mr. Fielding with
misstating his position in the House
when Mr. Fielding brought in his
tariff of 1897. Briefly, the contention of Sir Charles at that time war.
that the Fielding tariff should be
condemned, and the condemnation
Mr. Fieldin gcltes referred to an entirely different thing from the Fielding tariff he finally passed, Mr.
Fielding having amended the tariff
along the lines Sir Charles indicated
must be followed.
Of the present arrangement Sir
Charles says: "I am opposed to your
agreement with the United States
because Mr. Bayard, in 1886, assured
Mr. Chamberlain and myself that the
policy of the Democratic party was
to remove as soon as they were able
the duties on all the articles in your
agreement, and President Taft now
sees that he can only secure his reelection by the same policy. We owe
nothing to the Republican party, and
would gain everything without any
entangling alliance, which would, I
fear, end in the destruction of British institutions in Canada."
Variation  Made in  the  Rules Relating to the Doubling Prices
of Crown Lands
The order-in-council adopted by
the executive council and approved
by His Honor tbe Lieutenant Governor, with respect to the recent doubling of the prides of first and second class crown lands throughout
British Columbia, which has been
varied or modified to that extent
that it will not be held applicable to
lands applied for and upon which
the required deposit of fifty cents
per acre had been paid prior to the
decision arriver at In respect to the
amendment of prices, reads as follows:
"That the order-in-council approved on April 3, 1911, Increasing
the minimum prices of first, and second class lands from $5 and $2.50
an acre respectively to $10 and $5
per acre respectively shall be held
not to apply to applications to purchase such various crown lands
which were received by the assistant
commissioners of lands on or before
April 3, 1911, and with respect to
which the required deposit of fifty
cents per acre had been received by
the said commissioners on or before
April 3, 1911."
Tne minute-of-council submitted
by the minister of lands, Hon. Mr.
Ross, upon which this Important order is based, is in very similar terms,
reading as follows:
"T'>at by an order-in-council, approved on April 3, 1911, provision
was made for increasing the minimum prices of first and second-class
lands from $5 and $2.50 per acre
respectively to $10 and $5 per acre
"That It was further provided In
sneb order that such Increased prices
t.iould apply to all lands with respect to which the applications to
purchase had not been given favorable consideration prior to the said
April 3, 1911, notwithstanding the
date of such applications or any delay that might have occurred In the
consideration of the same.
"And to recommend that the said
order-in-council be held not to apply
to applications to purchase vacant
crown lands which were received by
the assistant commissioners of lands
on or before the said April 3, 1911,
and with respect to which the required deposit of fifty cents per acre

Interior Mining and Smelting  Centres
Have Complaint Against
resolution Passed at Rossland Call-
ing Attention of Railway Commission to It
At a large meeting of the Rossland board of trade, the following
resolution was moved by Lome A.
Campbell, general manager of the
West Kootenay Power and Light
Company, and seconded by H. F.
Stow, of the Bank of British North
"Whereas, this district looks to
the Crow's Nest Pass coal fields for
Its supply of coke; and
"Whereas, the price of coke in this
district at the present time is all that
the low grade ores of this section
will stand; and
"Whereas, this board being composed of members who are vitally interested in the mining and smelting
industries, urges upon the chairman
of the conciliation board now in session, to investigate the effect that
any increase on coke or coal will
have on the mining and smelting industries of this section; and
"Whereas, the smelters of this
section have been expending large
amounts of money on betterments
in order that the lower grade ores
may be treated at a profit, and
should the present wage scale go
Into effect as asked by District No.
18 of the United Mine Workers of
America, which is an advance of
5.55 per cent on the contract work
and 12% per cent on company day
men, it means that this would increase the price of coke from 30 to
40 cents per ton. In the case of
the Rosland ores an increase of 30
cents a ton on coke will make an
increase of six cents a ton on ore
treated. In the case of ores of the
Boundary an increase of 30 cents a
ton on coke will mean an increase of
five cent's a ton of ore treated. In
view of the fact that the smelters operating in the southern portion of
British Columbia at the present time
on account of the low prices of metals, are practically making only an
even break, and when taking this
Into consideration there is very little
encouragement from their standpoint in going alter the lower grade
ores, of which there Is a large tonnage in the Rossland camp, and if
this tonnage can be increased it
means giving employment to additional men, whereas, if the cost of
treatment is increased it is certain to
Interfere wtih the tonnage now being extracted, and in turn will be the
cause of laying off a large number
of men in this district; and
"Whereas, we are creditably informed that the real cause of discontent between the mine operators of
District No. 18 is not so much a
question of wages as steady time,
and we are of the opinion that if arrangements were made with the
transportation companies so that an
ample supply of cars be given to the
different coal companies each and
every day, that the miners employed
in the coal mines throughout the
Crow's Nest district would be making in excess of what the metal min-
rs are making in this district.
"Therefore, be it resolved, that a
copy of this resolution be forwarded
to the chairman of the conciliation
board now in session and request
that he familiarize himself with the
above facts before deciding as to
whether or not the miners of the
Crow'5s Nest section are entitled to
aon increase on the present contract
rates now In effect."
There was some discussion, following the reading of the resolution,
the gist of which was that owing to
a shortage of empty cars the men did
not work much more than half time.
Given a regular supply of cars, even
if there was a cut in the wages, they
would make more money, and thus
it was hoped that the chairman, Dr.
C. W. Gordon, would bring the matter before the railway commission at
The resolution was carried without a dissenting vote.

A family moved from the city to a
suburban locality and were told that
they should get a watchdog to guard
the premises at night. So they
■bought the largest dog that was for
Bale In the kennels of a neighboring
dog fancier, who was a German.
Shortly afterward the house was
entered by burglars, who made a
good haul, while the big dog slept.
The man went to the dog fancier and
told him about It.
"Veil, vat you need now," said the
dog merchant, "Is a leedle dog to
vake up the big dog."
Prof. Robertson Outlines in Interview in
London the Scope of the
What  Is  Intended  to  Be Done for
Canadian Education by
the Investigation
The London Times, of recent date,
contains an Interview with Dr. J. W.
Robertson, chairman of the Canadian Royal Commission on Industrial
Training nad Technical Education.
Dr. Robertson gives the Times the
following Interesting account of the
work and scope of the commission:
"The commission of which I am
chairman began a systematic survey
of Canada, at Halifax, and we covered the whole Doinion, visiting one
hundred places, including every Industrial centre of Importance. We
examined 1470 of the leading men
and women in Canada in the fields
of education, industrial enterprise
and labor. The result of our Inquiries is a great volume of authentic Information concerning the needs
of our people based on close observation and derived from experience
of the actual conditions obtaining in
the various localities. The head
men—the manufacturers—who had
achieved the foremost positions were
unanimous in speaking of the great
value to tbem of practical experience
of workshop conditions during their
training. In regard to technical education In general, there was an expression of disappointment or discontent with the results of the
schools from the point of view both
of the employer and the worker.
These two sets of people were of the
opinion that the curriculum consisting mainly of book studies, had not
developed the habit of close ovser-
vation or brought out any power of
management; they complain of this
as making the young people, when
they came to the factories, lacking
in initiative and wanting in the qualities which make a good, effective
"The rapid development of the
country and the many openings for
ambitious boys and young men have
led them Into all sorts of employment, yielding high wages for the
time, but leading nowhere after the
end of a few years, so that the boy
at 18  finds himself too big for the
job for which he was engaged and
without any kind of trade to enable
him to increase his earning power or
to help his locality by becoming a
good productive member of society.
Many o four employers said very
frankly that the rush of business
in a new country was so great that
they could not be bothered to train
apprentices. There was a general
expression of opinion that our people
are desirous of having more constructive handiwork taught In the
schools, primarily to enable the boy
to reveal to his teacher and his parents the bent of his abilities so that
he may have some development of
his power and Inclination for productive occupation. Many said that
the boys would continue longer at
school If the kind of work they did
there appealed to their own judgment as being likely to increase their
earning power, and particularly If It
was a kind of work that a boy found
he excelled in. Many a boy finding
himself unable to keep pace with
the brightest boys in the book and
theoretical studies was discouraged
and did not want to continue longer
at school. Such boys sometimes had
later maturing powers, and if they
did well in the manual work would
derive fresh courage and confidence
and so develop Increased power.
"Another result of our inquiries
which came out very clearly was the
need in the smaller cities and towns
of well-arranged and well-taught
evening classes for workme'n. We
found a very general desire that
there should be provision for the
boys who had begun to learn skilled
trades to attend day classes during
some hours a week, making up for
what they do not now get because of
the dying out of the old apprenticeship system with its training and discipline, especially since the development of Industrial achinery keeps
a boy at one job and therefore
stunts his developent as a skilled
craftsman. The desire was repeatedly expressed that such boys engaged in such an occupation should
have a chance elsewhere, If they
could not get It in a factory, for developing their ability and skill. This,
moreover, would relieve the monotony of automatic labor such at attending to one machine in one particular way."

Dominion  Government  is  Backing the
Canadian Northern Railway in
Its Proposition.
Eastern   Portion  of   Mackenzie and
Mann System Will lie Assured
by Latest Move
Details of the policy of the Dominion Government in the matter of
guaranteeing the bonds of the Canadian Northern Railway in order to
enable it to complete its through
line, are available.
Hon. George P. Graham's resolution provides for a bond guarantee
for the Canadian Northern Railway
that will insure the speedy construction of the backbone of the
company's transcontinental line
namely, the thousand-mile link from
Port Arthur to Montreal. The government will ask parliament to
guarantee the bonds of the company
to the extent of $35,000 per mile for
the whole distance from Port Arthur
to Montreal via Sudbury and the Ottawa Valley. The interest on the
guaranteed securities is placed at
3%.% per annum, payable half-
yearly, with the principal payable
fifty years after the first issue. From
Montreal the company will have access to the seaboard for its through
freight by means of an interchange
of traffic at Montreal with the Intel-
colonial Railway. From Port Arthur
to the Rockies the line is already
completed, and is now heading for its
Pacific Coast terminus at Port Mann.
It is confidently expected, according to the government's announcement, that the aid to be given by
the Dominion will go no further than
the guarantee of bonds, and that the
company will be able to meet all the
interest indebtedness out of earnings
from the start. As security for the
guarantee of the bond issue the country will have a first mortgage on the
road itself, as well as on the line
from Hawkesbury through Ottawa
and Toronto to the Niagara River.
In the event of the extrtmely improbable failure of the company to meet
its bond indebtedness the government would find itself in practical
possession of nearly 1,400 miles of
completed railway at a cost of only
$35,000 per mile, and this railway
would be a natural and completed
extension of the Intercolonial to the
head  of  the great  lakes.
The new line will, with the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
give practically all eastern Ontario
points three competing lines to the
west, and to the west It will give
three competing lines to Canadian
seaports. It will open up an immense stretch of agricultural and
mineral country in northern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley. It will
run through the clay belt of the Ontario hinterland at distances varying from 20 to 50 miles from the
line of the National Transcontinental Railway, which skirts the northern part of the clay belt. In addition the company proposes to construct a line from Georgian Bay
nortli to ihe main line, tapping a
country now unserved by railways.
The company has now a through
line from Ottawa to Quebec. It Is
proposed to begin at once the construction of a line branching off
from this at Hawkesbury to Montreal. From Ottawa the road will
run on the south side of the Ottawa
River to the Chats, about thirty
miles west of Ottawa. From there
it will cross the Ottawa River and
run along the north shore to Portage du Fort, where it will again
cross the Ottawa, and proceed thence
nearly in a straight line to Sudbury,
and thence along the route now surveyed  to Port Arthur.
A feature of the agreement which
will be made with the company is
that the guaranteeing of the bonds
is dependent on the carrying of traffic, unless specifically routed otherwise by the shipper, through to
Canadian ports. It may be noted in
this connection that the Canadian
Northern, unlike its competitors, the
Canadian Pacific and the Grand
Trunk Railways has no American
terminus, and will, therefore, be
naturally desirous of encouraging its
export business via Montreal, Quebec, Halifax or St. John.

Prosecutions    for    Bigamy    Reveal
Convenience of Community
An interesting marriage question
has arisen in the Doukhobor settlements, says the Manitoba Free Press.
At the recent assizes at Yorkton,
three Doukhobor farmers were found
guilty and sentenced to short terms
of imprisonment on the charge of
bigamy. The evidence showed that
these three men were "independent"
Doukhobors who had left the community and established themselves
as individual farmers. Their wives,
acting, it is suggested, under the
compulsion of the leaders of the
community, refused to accompany
them; whereupon they secured new
mates. Evidence adduced at the
trial showed that divorce in the
Doukhobor community is easily obtained, mere separation having this
effect, and that the members of the
community appear not to be aware
that divorces authorized by the customs of the sect are not recognized
by the laws of Canada. The cases at
Yorkton were instituted for the purpose of informing the Doukhobors
as to the law on the subject, and this
is the explanation of the light sentences that were imposed. .ludge
Brown, in passing sentence, intimated that further offences would
meet with severer penalties. He also
uttered a special warning to the
wives who refused to follow their
husbands out of the community,
pointing out that if they regard the
separation which results as equivalent lo divorce, and remarry, they
lay themselves open to severe punishment, It Is well that steps are
being taken to enforce the marriage
laws of the country In the Doukhobor community, a sit, has been a matter of common knowledge for years
that the members of the sect are
under the Impression that the divorce customs which are recognized
by the community are legal.

The stern-wheel gasoline boat
Christian, which left the foot .of
Lake Lebarge for the Iditarod a few
days ago, was wrecked, with the
cargo, after proceeding thirty miles
down the Yukon.
The boat, which was topheavy because of her large load, struck a rock
in United States bend and capsized.
Vessel and cargo are a total loss
The crew of three men swam ashore.
The regular steamers were expected to begin to operate between Dawson and Lake Lebarge yesterday.
The ice of the lake has been so rotten for several days that freighting
over it has been impossible. The
lake is a broadened portion of the
Yukon. Steamers cannot leave
Whltehorse, the terminus of the
White Pass railroad and head of nav
igation on the Yukon, until Lebarge
is unfettered.
The activity in lumber shipments
to Australia has resulted in the cutting down of the regular coal freight,
a difference of $1,500 to $2,000 a
voyage to the American owners sailing craft in the Australian trade.
The vessel carrying lumber depends on the coal cargoes back to
San Francisco to help pay expenses,
the rate of eighteen shillings a ton,
which has been prevalent for son\e
time, has been cut to sixteen shillings. Charters written last fall at
the high rate have had to be abandoned by ship owners as under conditions imposed by ethe coal importers they are virtually at the mercy
of the coal men. The reason for
their helplessness is that there is a
plethora of tonnage now at and due
at Australian ports and the insertion
of the shipment clause in the charter.
Exports from Paget Sound, British Columbia and Oregon will be
100,000,000 feet since January 1,
last, as against only 135,000,000 the
whole of last year, and practically all
of the vesseis carrying this lumber
have been fixed to load coal for return.
The charters have provided that
the ships shall load at specified collieries, "or other collieries," and the
regulation clause relating to delays
caused by the strikers not counting
against the ships' loading    Ib    aug
mented by an insurance clause, the
face of it favorable to ship owners.
Owners for a month have the
privilege of cancelling this charter
in ease of strike or lockout at the
colliery,  it is said.

was a collector of rare books. Out
of his library 3,500 books and manuscripts have been sold at auction
since his death for $997,363, or
nearly $300 for each Item. The
largest price was $50,000 for a Gutenberg Bible, which is the most ever
paid for a single volume. The $10,-

printed in Boston in 1645, is the
most ever paid for an American vol-
