NOMINATION TODAY
Conservatives Will Select Candidate for
Kootenay in the Coining
By-Election
R.  T.  Green of Victoria  Will,  It   Is
Expected, Be tlie Nominee
of the Party
The date of the forthcoming by-
election In Kootenay to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of
A. S. Goodeve to take a seat on the
railway commission will be June 20.
Nomination will be held May 30.
Today the Conservatives will hold
a convention in Nelson to nominate
a candidate. R. F. Green of Victoria, formerly of Nelson, is likely
to be chosen. Mr. Green was formerly a member of the provincial
government and has large interests
in Kootenay, where he is well
known. He will assuredly be
elected.
It is not likely that the Liberals
will put a candidate in the field,
though the names of Messrs. F. .1.
Dean, editor of the Cranbrook Herald; Ralph Smith, ex-M. P.; M. A.
Macdonald, now of Vancouver and
formerly of Cranbrook; A. M. Johnson, barrister, of Nelson; E. A.
Crease, a Nelson lawyer, and E. W.
Widdowson, assayer, of Nelson, are
mentioned.
BUILDING THEG.T.P.
Work Is To Be Rushed On The Railway
This Summer, According to
Despatch
The Continuation of the Line  Prom
Tete Jaune Cache Will  Start
in   Hay of Two
At the present time the railway
lines of the Grand Trunk Pacific in
Western Canada are being Increased
in length ten miles each day. In less
than one week the company will start
two more pioneers and I hen the road
will be pushed along at the rate of
twenty miles more a day. This means
that the company will build 120
miles of line weekly if the pioneers
run steadily day and night. In the
early season, however, the tendency
is to rush work and for a variety
of reasons, says a Winnipeg despatch.
The G. T. P. pioneers are working,
oiie ill Saskatchewan and one in Alberta. The Saskatchewan is building out of Regina and Is already
twenty miles south of the city. The
Alberta line from Tofield to Calgary
has been extended this year from
miles 102 to 127. Telegraph lines
are being kept right up with construction. It Is thought that construction will be pushed steadily
right through the mountains all summer once the pioneers get down to
work.

DRYDOCKS NEEDED
CENSURE OUR FINANCIERS
Notice of Notion is Given of Resolution Declaring That City's Business Has Been Bungled by
Finance Committee-Aldermen Will Support It.--Engineering Department To Be Remodelled by Asking For Resignations Of All Of Staff.--Intention Is To
Re-engage Those Considered Essential In The Office.--Lively
Meeting of Council In Secret.-Cancellation of Order
to Purchase Horses Condemned.
"Whereas, the committee having
in hand tlie finances of the city
should at all times be able to furnish
to tlie council or members of the
council, reliublc information in regard to the finances of the city, and
the relations of its bunkers or fiscal
agents  to  the  city;
"And, whereas, any misrepresentation of the city's standing or relation with the aforesaid bankers or
fiscal agents, or any withholding on
the part of the suid committee of
information which should be given
to tlie liunk of Montreal, would in
tlie opinion of this council work verj
materially to the disadvantage of tills
city's credit;
"And, whereas, this council is of
tiie opinion that all available and
necessary Information was not given
to the said Itniik of Montreal in
order that tlie bank become possessed
of the city position as to its loans,
thereby placing the city ill a very unenviable  light   before  the  public;
"Now, therefore, be it resolved,
that in the opinion of this council,
thai the finance committee should
be censured for not going more fully
into and acquainting the manager of
the Rank of Montreal with all available information in regard to the
business of the city; and, further,
that, this council views with 'alarm,
that on a pretext so slight, the
finance committee should advocate
the shutting down of all work on
the revenue producing utilities of
this city." -
Moved by Alderman Clayton, seconded by Alderman Kerr and supported  by Alderman  Montgomery.
Notice of Motion
The foregoing resolution has been
placed on the bulletin board as a
notice of motion, to be brought up
at the next meeting of the city council. This motion of censure was not
the only one that was brought to
light   at   ft  stormy   meeting  of  the
council last night, when the mayor
and aldermen sat in secret session
to consider the question of the civic
staff. Another notice of motion was
given also condemning the mayor
and those responsible for the action
that was taken in cancelling the order of the council for the purchase
of a team of horses without any
authority from the council. This will
also come up on Monday night, no-
tive of motion having been given.
The first named resolution, which
certainly condemns the finance com-
mitlee in no uncertain language, is'
to be introduced on the motion of'
Alderman Clayton, seconded by Alderman Kerr, and in support of it
is the name of Alderman Montgomery. The second notice of motion,
relative to the horse buying question, is fathered by Alderman Mor-
rissey, tlie chairman of the public
works committee, and seconded by
Alderman Dybhavn.
Horse-Purchasing
This latter motion sets forth that
whereas there are three committees
of the council, each of them charged
with special duties, and that it is
the practice of the council to pass
upon any matter of public import
only after it has been considered by
the special committee whose duty it
is to consider that particular piece
of work, and that the purchase of
a team of horses having been considered, by the works committee and
having passed the council and the
team ordered to be purchased that
the mayor had no right to cancel
the order made by the council without express authority. The action
of the mayor is strongly condemned
by the resolution, which, there is
every likelihood, it is said, will carry
along with the other one at the meeting on Monday evening.
Will Ask Resignations
At  the  meeting last hight a  de
cision was reached also to ask all
the members of the engineering department to resign their positions
from the head of the department
down. The council will then be in
a position to make whatever selection is considered best following the
resignations being received. It does
not mean that there will of necessity
be changes all round or that the head
of the department will be relieved of
his duties.
The special meeting last night was
held lor the express purpose.of considering the question of retrenchment in the matter of the city's staff.
From the very start it is said there
was a display of animation. Very free
criticisms were offered of different
members of the staff, and also of
members of the council.
Opinions  Differed
Every kind of motion it is believed
was offered in the effort lo carry
out some kind of change. The engineering department was tlie one thai
came in for more than a proportionate share of criticism and there were
motions to do all kind of things in
the department. In the end, however, It was decided to ask for the
resignations of all of them and then
go through and make such selections
as are considered best.
The business of the meeting naturally led to the consideration of the
financial situation and there was a
rather free discussion of this feature of the city's affairs at the board
Some of the aldermen who have had
a chance to look into the financial
side of the question more fully than
was permitted them before were In
a position to severely criticise the
special committee that has that end
of the city's business in hand.
Looked Behind Scenes
When the mayor at the last meeting of the council proceeded to add
Numerous Applications for Subsidies
From Various Points Show the
'0        Need ot Increased Facilities
By instruction from the minister
of public works Arthur St. Laurent,
assistant deputy minister, has prepared a reimrt on drydocks in Canada as compared with other countries. The general effect of It is
that both as regards numbers and
capacity of docks, Canada Is not
abreast of the times or up to Hie
requirements of lis expanding navigation  interests.
The new Subsidy* Act, however,
has begun to operate as n decided
stimulus io such undertakings, and
there are no [ewer than fifteen applications for subsidies' now before
the government.
The docks now existing are mi Hall-
tax, Quebec, Kingston, Colllngwood
and Port Arthur. Of the fifteen
newly projected, the principal will be
at St. John, Quebec, Montreal, Toronto, Sydney, Sault Ste. Marie and
Prince Rupert.
The two docks at Colllngwood and
that al Halifax are to be extended.
If the different proposals before the
government are entertained there
will be adequate facilities for shipbuilding and repair on both seaboards and on the lakes.
The latest application is for a subsidy for a dock at Port Dalhousie,
Ontario, but It Is not likely to he
entertained on account of the slliiii-
tion being so near to Toronto, where
a drydock  is now being built.
OUR CANADIAN BONDS
London Financial Houses Art Ctrefol and
Require Good Recommendations
Advice  Is Given  Not to  Attempt to
Hawk Securities Around Hut to
Deal   With  Good   House
The London financial houses concerned in Canadian investments are
not a little exercised by the apparent
falling off in the British appetite for
Canadian issues of the kind which
until recently made strong appeal
here.
These houses are comparatively
few In number and no one who has
tried to place a loan in London questions their power. Hence the value
of Interest attaching to tlie following
communications made by one of them
to tlie financial pages of a recent issue of the Times. What he says
represents the views to which these
[influential provincial friends of Cnn-
! ada in London have been led by recent happenings,    lie says:
"Vou published an Interview .with
Mr. Hays, ihe presldenl of the Grand
Trunk, In which he stales that Cau-
| ada has not had too much money,
j but strongly urges the investing public io be more careful than they have
sometimes been In examining Canadian propositions, and only to Invesl
their capital on the advice of responsible financial houses.
"Mr. Hay's timely advice is excellent, and I think it can lie carried
a little further.
"It Is not only tlie British public
which wants some advice as I hey
have had it during the lusi five or
six months and consequently at the
present moment are saying 'No'
very decidedly to any propositions
which are not put forward by Ihe
best responsible houses. On tlie other
hand, they are always ready to sup
ply money to Canada on sound propositions, especially when put forward
by houses of good standing and
known in connection with Canadian
business.
"Mr. Hays says Oft had a has not
had too much money. This Is absolutely correct, but in several instances she has had her money too
cheap; It Is on this point that the
British Investor is criticising Canadian Issues today, and It Would be
a very good thing If the Canadian
borrower could understand why this
is so.
"Canadians must realize that London lends money to the whole world,
and when one country has borrowed
£$200,00 000 within five years and
wants more, she must accept ,v,e fact
that While the British public >v'B
lend It to her, they will only do 80
at a price that will enable them to
share in the prosperity of the country.
"A little advice to Canadian wishing to borrow money would do no

of this northern portion Of the continent. He has come back from a

While away Mr, Guzman made investments in Mexican mining properties to some extent.

to the committee in order to show
the additional members how weak
they would be along paths where
the mighty ones had fallen he did
not realize that he was but preparing for future trouble. The members
who were added to the committee
at that meeting, it seems now were
not denied for a moment what the
mayor and the chairman of the financial committee expected were impossible things to obtain. Accordingly
these members of the council thai
have been permitted to gaze for a
moment behind the scenes with respect to the way in which (he
finances of the city are handled
have come to the conclusion thai
Mayor Newton and Alderman Douglas are simply "flies on the wheel"
and that the city's interests are being sacrificed by their retention of
office in the capacity in which they
are serving on tlie finance committee.
The Third   Member
It was, of course a terrific
shock to these two worthies, who
have been laboring under the delusion that they are Heaven-born financiers. The other member of the
committee, Alderman Bullock-Webster, has not been nearly as prominent in connection witli the affairs
of the committee, and the public is
therefore at a loss somewhat whether to attach blame to him or not for
the blunders that have been committed.
The meeting, in consequence of
the springing of these sensational
notices of motion, which, if carried,
are virtual votes of want of confidence in the members who are affected, came to a rather abrupt ending, It is said, and the company parted in silence. Monday night will
see the council chamber crowded to
the doors to hear the results of the
The canyon on the Skeena is closed
to navigation again. The warm
weather has had its effect and the
river steamers will find it impossible
to navigate that pass except perhaps
downward. Word was received in
the city last evening that the Hudson's Bay Company steamer Port
Simpson had reached the canyon on
the down trip last evening and that
the water there stood over three feet
above the mark which served to
show the stream was in a navigable
condition   with   safety.
The steamer will pass through the
canyon and come direct to tlie city.
From here she will take on cargo
for the Stikine and leave as soon
as possible for that river, where she
will be engaged for the uexi six
weeks. Following that lime she will
return to the Skeena and resume the
service there.

The Prince Ruperl Rowing Club
will have a model clubhouse in the
course of a few weeks. The members have decided lo purchase the
Hudson's Bay Company's steamer,
the Hazelton, which is on the ways
at Port Simpson ready to be turned
over to the club. C. H. French, the
representative of the company, who
has been in the north in connection
with the steamboat business, goes
south this morning, having completed the deal for the vessel.
In making the move which tlie
club did they are undoubtedly acting
very wisely. They will have in the
Hazelton a proposition that is admirably adapted to the purposes for
which it is being bought. It will be
put in shape and brought here as
soon as possible so as to be open
for use at the earliest date.

A FATAL ACCIDENT
Thursday, May 16, 1912.
FREE   FOR   Al
The affairs of the city council
have reached a crisis. There was
little doubt in the minds of most of
the citizens that this was sure to
come under all the circumstances.
The mayor of the city has no longer
the confidence of the council with
which he is serving. He has, moreover, lost the confidence of the citizens generally. As a "smasher" he
made his reputation. As a "constructor" he lias shown that he is
helpless. The council, in the present
mayor, have no one to look to for
advice. To make things worse, he
followed a man in office who had
ability as an administrator.
When the members of the council
met last night in secret session there
seems to have been a disposition on
the part of all to speaK their minds.
Just what took place will never be
fully known because the meeting was
a secret one. The mayor and the
chairman of tlie finance committee,
who was nominated, to that position
by the mayor and as such was the
mayor's creation, seem to have been
the special marks for good round
criticism. On Monday night there
will be resolutions brought up that
will if carried amount practically to
a declaration on the part of the majority of the 'council that they will
not, bo responsible for the acts of
the mayor and Alderman Douglas
and a declaration that they consider
these two are not capable of handling the financial end of the city's
affairs.
The stand that has been laken by
the members of the council who are
supporting this resolution is undoubtedly a correct one. This city
lias been placed in a false position
as a result of the blundering of the
parties mentioned. The case is one
of putting I lie conduct, of public affairs in the hands of incompetent
men. It would not be done In private life and should not be done in
civic affairs.
The Journal in iho interests of ihe
city has withheld criticisms that were
warranted. There are limits, however, that cannot be allowed to be
passed and it is nol in the public
interest l. with! old ' trutl
respeel to them. Tlie city, at a time
when it should tie making rapid
strides in the preparation for the
i , ilation that Is sure to be crowding In mi this place before many
months pass, is being placed in a
false lighl because it is misrepresented at the council board. To such
an  extent  is this true  that   citizens
of    Pi i     Rui ert    fell    positively
easier when it was supposed thai
there would be little money available for the council to spend, because
they feared the results, so Incompetent did they consider those who
were handling the affairs to be,
STEEL  PROFITS
Net  Returns for Canadian Company
Last Vear Amounted to Over
a Million.
The net profits of the Steel Company of Canada last year, after deducting nearly half a million for repairs and extensions, amounted to
$1,373,522.Si.
It is explained in the annual report, just issued, that no comparison with the first statement of the
two-year-old organization could be
made, as the first report covered a
period of only six months' business.
Tho balance sheet showed the
profits lo have been disposed of as
follows: Interest on bonds and
mortgages and cost of underwriting
and Btamping bonds of tlie company,
$484,100.ii). Dividends on preferred stock, $454,741. Credited to
fund for depreciation, renewal and
improvements of plants, $100,000.

Train Which  Was Coming to Prince
Rupert  Had on Board  Daniel McKay.   Injured   Fighting   Fires
A fatal accident occurred on Tuesday afternoon on the lino of the
G. T. P., when II. Gallagher, road-
master on the tl. T. P., and one of
the most reliable officials on ihe line,
was struck by a locomotive.
Mr. Gallagher was travelling by
a motorcycle, when lie was overtaken by an easl hound train and
thrown off into the river, which is
close to the roadbed al (he point
where the accident occurred. His
body has not been recovered.
The accident, is difficult to understand as the roadmaster was told at
Terrace of the train that was due.
In spite of this be started out on
the way east. The train was a special, having on board Daniel McKay,
a section foreman who had been injured in fighting a fire near Terrace.
He was being brought to the hospital, where he is doing well.
Mr. Gallagher was about dr years
of age and had been employed for
years on the railway. His action in
taking the course he did is all the
more to be marvelled al in view of
his  long experience.
credit of the profit and loss account
is   $583,599.74.
To enable tlie company to run its
plant at full capacity, absorbing
overhead charges and thereby securing the greatest economy, it was
necessary to sell goods at a very
small profit.
The retirement of Mr. II. S. Holt
from the directorate was due, it is
said, lo a disagreement respecting
the legality of a prospective issue of
$500,000 bonds to pay for the new-
plant.
It is claimed that under the trust
deed of the original issue no more
could be issued until the earnings
reached a certain stage in excess of
the  interests requirements.
Mr. Holt takes tne ground that
that bonds cannot properly be issued; hence his determination lo retire from the board.
The resignation of Mr. Holt and
the appointment of Sir Edmund Osier to the vacancy becomes of special
interest at the present time because
It will be remembered that Sir Edmund Osier's name appeared on the
board of directors when the company
was being organized, but he resigned
before final arrangements for Ihe
consolidation were put through.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
LATE W. T. STEAD
P. O'Connor  Pays Tribute to
Abilities of the Victim of
Titanic.
the
Some of  the  Characteristics of the
Newspaper Man That. Made Him
Famous in the World
T. P. O'Connor, the noted journalist and parliamentarian, writing in
the London "Dally Telegraph, pays a
notable tribute to the memory of his
old friend and fellow worker, the
late W. T. Stead. As will be seen,
he is by no means oblivious to the
faults and Idiosyncrasies of the famous journalist, bul he is ready to
acknowledge Mr. Stead's honesty of
purpose and unswerving devotion to
what lie believed to be right. Mr.
O'Connor writes:
"A strange, a familiar, a very complex figure dhiiiinpeared from the
life of London with the lamented
.death of Mr. Stead. He had a genius
and perhaps even a little of a passion for keeping well in the public
eye. Whatever he did, he did resonantly, knowing neither fear nor hesitation nor false shame. A vehement,
ardent, audacious and dramatic nature, pursued any course on which
he entered with such blowing loud
trumpets, with such determinations,
sometimes with such recklessness,
and such honest self-forgetfulness
that he never ceased for many years
to fill the public eye and public ear.
He attacked powerful causes and
powerful personalities; he achieved
many things; he failed in many
tilings; he was at time the idol of
large sections and the abomination
of other sections of the countrymen.
There were many moments in his
life which were glorious; there were
some that were open to question on
the ground of taste or of that genial
indulgence for human frailty which
public opinion in this country likes
to see extended even to the sinner.
But at the end of it all there remained for Mr. Stead a general
esteem; he was never charged with
anything but the best motives; when
he erred, he erred through a fanatical desire to relieve a human
wrong which he loathed; he remained, with all ills strong international
and humanitarian sympathies, the
typical English Puritan, with the bigotry, the over-confident sense of intimacy with Divine powers and of
Divine inspiration, with the reckless
and self-sacrificing courage which
has played so great a part—sometimes so good and sometimes so mischievous a part—in the .great affairs
the  great   affairs  of  England.
"William Stead came from the
Nortli of England, and from the
home of a Nonconformist clergyman.
And he looked the Northern to the
end of his clays; tlie Northern with
something of tlie Viking, in coloring as well as in character. When
first he came to London lie was a
red-haired, shaggy man, with the
light gleaming blue-grey eyes that
are Scandinavian rather than English."
Mr. O'Connor proceeds to tell of
Mr, Stead's work on the Pall Mall
Gazette, first as assistant to John
Morley, now Lord Morley. and later
as editor himself.
"He was always on the move, always inaugurating some new sensation. He was undoubtedly one of
the chief agencies In producing the
expedition of General Gordon to
Khartoum. Willi all their tremendous differences of character and career, there was a certain sympathy
between the two men. They were
botli mystics both Puritans, both
students of Ihe Scriptures, and both
fearless' visionaries. Stead always
defended Gordon as the idea Chrls-
lian hero to the end.of his days, and
no man ever said a word against
Gordon without eliciting a vehement
and even furious reply from Stead.
"In tIn- cud  Stead  had to go, and
the Pall Mall Gazetter passed Into
other hands—first editorials, and afterwards to a dlffereni proprietary.
After a while stead entered Into
partnership with tlie late Sir George
Newnes, to start Ihe periodical
known as the Review of Reviews.
But the two men were both of such
powerful character that they could
not long work together; Stead raised
the money to buy his partner out,
and became the sole proprietor. The
periodical became very popular;
every month Stead poured forth his
views, urbi et orbi, on all the topics
of the day; wrote character sketches
—very brilliantly done; dissected
some popular novel, and made It
the talk of the town; and altogether
produced a very readable, powerful
and  instructive  publication.
In some of the characteristics of
a journalist he was equal, if not superior, to any journalist of his times
He   could   paint   a   picture   with   ex
traordinary vividness; he could pile
up a case with a wealth at once of
detail and of imagery in a very brief
space of time; never could he be dull,
even in a line; his point of view,
though often wrong-headed was always striking and original. And he
had another remarkable journalistic
gift. Without any self-questioning,
without a particle of shyness, always
inspired by some strong purpose, he
could make his way to the presence
of anybody. lie could interview a
Tsar or an Emperor; or, if the whim
had ever seized him, doubtless also
a Pope. He was so strong a personality that people never thought
of him as a man of tills class or that,
of his profession; of his social standing; he might have preached in another period of the world's history a
great revolutionary gospel, though
he were liufa monk in beggar's rags;
lie was a Peter the Hermit preaching crusades out of his time.
"And whenever he took up a man
or a cause, ho gave himself up to it
whole-hearterdly. One of his passions for a while was Russia, and
he could see no wrong in the right
divine of Thars, though when the
Russion revolution came he welcomed it. He also took up the cause of
peace with somthing of the same
blind fervor and the same curious
disregard of the ordinary limitations
of humanity. When The Hague convention came, he went there, and he
demeaned himself, to the combined
horror and amusement of the staid
and courtly diplomatists there—accustomed to all the stiff shackles of
their hierarchical life—as if he were
the ruler who had summoned it and
the omnipotent plenipotentiary who
controlled all its proceedings. He
often must have made himself something of a nuisance to these courtly
gentlemen; but he went, on, demanding with insistent, voice impossible
decisions and convinced that the conference had only to say Peace, and
that universal peace would immediately follow.
The Boer war brought him once
more into brilliant limelight and into
one of those cyclones of personal unpopularity through which he so often passed in his restless and dickered career. He wrote violent articles, addressed meetings, created an
organization and published a periodical to bring the war to an end;
! and now and then he had to submit
to very violent manifestations of outraged patriotic sentiment. His periodical suffered largely, because
people ceased to read it in large numbers, and the advertising revenue
fell with the falling circulation. But
this man was absolutely disinterested, and even reckless where his pecuniary and personal interests were
concerned; and he went on his way,
cheerfully and even smilingly. He
had fierce convictions, but he never
had any personal animosities.
He was drawn to the German Emperor by certain common qualities of
restless and dreams; and was one
of those who took an'active. part in
promoting the exchange of visits between the journalists of England and
Germany. Stead would be in his
' element in such gatherings. Getting
up without hesitation and without a
j trace of embarrassment, lie would
deliver with extraordinary fluency a
speech half English, half ungram-
nialical, but intelligible German,
amid roars of laughter and applause.
In  later   years  there  was  a   good
deal of mellowing of the sterner features of bis earlier days.     He could
j join in a good dinner, and his stern
leetotalism had disappeared.    He remained  restless to the end, and  full
1 of visions nnd campaigns   and movements  to   bring  about  some  mighty
changes   in   the  world.     He  had   ftn
abiding     and     inflexible     optimism
which made'him always hopeful and
energetic in bis purposes.    Hut there
i had cnnie over his face-  especially

in the last year or two—acertain
change. The beard and hair were
still shaggy, but they were grey, not
red; and the eyes, though glistening,
had a certain look of fatigue; and
the last time the writer of these
lines dined with him there was a
certain suggestion of a man that was
tired, and even a little saddened. One
could fancy there was look of that
second sight in which lie believed,
for one of his many abberations was
a belief in spooks ami immediate
communication between this world
of reality and the world of spirits.
His end is, in some sense, fitting,
for his was a career and a character
too dramatic to end in a common
way. And with all his faults and
mistakes, be it said, In grateful memory to him, that his faults were generous, and his mistakes came, from
narrow beliefs and ideals in ills early
life. And so peace be with him in

BAYLEY   IX   CONDITION
Pictures of Allen and Bayley show
both men with considerable super-
flous flesh, which they will take off
during the next thirty days, says a
Calgary despatch. Bayley has entirely recovered from the injury to
his hand, and has taken on a fast
boxer at the coast to train him.
Allen will return to Syracuse in a
few days to train under the jurisdiction of the Syracuse National Boxing Association.
For the benefit of those who are
not acquainted with the record of
Joe Bayley, bis battles during the
past year are given. He knocked out
the following: Maxwell, 11 rounds;
Ral'erty, ."> rounds; F. Wyet, 8
rounds; Rowan, .ri rounds; Eddy Merino, 8 rounds; Lombard, 6 rounds;
Lauder, 3 roundB. He won from De
Coursey in 15 rounds, and also won
the decision over Pat Scott at Prince
Rupert in 20 rounds.
Quoting Bayley from his last letter, he states: "I am in the pink of
condition, and never felt better in
my life, and will enter the ring better than I ever was before. I am
confident of coming out victorious."
Allen states practically tlie same
thing and fans who watch the match
on June 29 at Bassano will find it
difficult to pick the winner until
the final is reached.
It is probable that Bib Pitzsim-
niuns will bo in Bassano about tiie
time of this bout, which will add one
more champion to the group appearing in the ring. Fitzsinimons will
likely watch Burns in training previous to this event and give his
views from the ringside of Burn's
chances of winning the world's championship.

Acting under Instructions from
the City Council, I call attention to
the necessity of lot holders, under
agreement from the Grand Trunk
Pacific Development company, to
complete their titles, and have the
same registered in the Land Registry
office before July 1st next. Owners
whose lots are not registered by that
time run the risk of being unable to
vote in Municipal matters, or being
eligible for the office of Mayor or
Alderman. The Council considered It proper that this question should
be brought to the notice of the whole
public.
