ASSESSMENT MATTER
Council of Board of Trade Deal With
the Vexed Question.
Committee    Appointed    to    Consult
Willi City Council in Hope
of Settlement
The council of the Board of Trade
after considering the situation that
has arisen respecting the G T. P,
assessment, decided on Wednesday
evening to have a commute'. consisting of the president, A. I. Morris,
Thomas Dunn, P. 1. Palmer, P. VV,
Scott and E. E. Clarke, go into the
whole subject with the city council
and prepare a report for presentation at. the general nieet'ng of the
board on Monday night.
The meeting of the council of the
board was called, as the president
explained, at the request of Thomas
Dunn, who considered it important
that this subject of the assessment
should be settled.
Mr. Dunn said that since the meeting of the citizens committee with
the council on Saturday there had
been a telegram from Mr. Chamberlin In which he suggested that the
citizens might formulate a proposition and submit it to the company in
accordance with a letter to the mayor
In June. Mr. Dunn read a letter
which had been received from the
mayor, which had been wrlten by Mr.
Hays, after a conference held in Vancouver in June when the mayor nnd
Aid. Barrow were present. Mr. Hays
suggested in that letter that His
Worship should take the matter up
and appoint a committee to meet an
official of the company. Mr. Dunn
thought it might be possible to solve
the situation. The assessment on the
G. T. P.'a waterfront was felt to lie,
too high. He thought it would be
better to meet the company In a
friendly way. The company did not
want to be unfairly treated. He did
not think the citizens wanted lo deal
unfairly with them. They should hp
met in a friendly way as man to
man. There were many things that
could be done. Some arrangement
might be come to that would be good
for the city and good for the company.
Missed Opportunity
With respect to the lette.' from Mr.
Hays to the mayor, he thought the
opportunity had been missed to make
a deal with the oempany. The request should not have been treated
as it was.
Taking up the assessment, Mr.
Dunn pointed out that the reserve,
with 6,500 feet frontage on the water
Was assessed for $3,000,000. The
part around the hill stood at $1,000,-
000 From Hays cove to Seal har-
bol another $1,000,000 was asress-
ed. Continuing around the waterfront was another section assessed at
$500,000, although a government
section adjoining it and larger in
area represented only $500. The
company was altogether assessed $7,-
000,000 on its waterfront.
There was some reason for taking
this up by the Board, he thought.
The Board of Trade represented the
people and might well take this up
The absentee property holders should
be taken into account in this. If
the citizens could assist in settling
this question it would be wise to do
so. The assessment of the C.P.R.
waterfront in Vancouver was nothing
like this, he thought. The C.P.R.
only pnld about $70,000 or less In
taxes In Vancouver in any year.
P. I. Palmer agreed with Mr.
Dunn.
The Other Side
Aid. Mobley thought that this subject deserved a good deal of attention. He did not represent the city
council at the meeting. Apart from
the question of right this was a matter of expediency. It was not advisable to become antagonistic to the G.
T. P. The company like others, was
disposed to ask for more than could
be granted.
The G. T. P. had never expressed
what It wanted, except in asking for
an exemption of $6,000,000, which
was too much. He believed himself
that the assessment on the waterfront was a little too high. He also
believed that the assessment on some
of the other property owned by the
company was too low. The whole
might be adjusted. The city council
had never refused to consult In the
matter. The council was not responsible for the assessment. It was fixed
by a government official. The government alone could alter it. The
council could only ask the government to lower it.
There was another aspect to the
case, however. The company's property leased at $10 a month per front
foot on the reserve. It was all leased
and gave a good revenue. It was
further specified that the lessees
should pay the taxes.
The council was just as ready to
treat with the G. T. P.. as the company was to settle It. The council
was prepared to go half way. It was
not prepared to go all the way. The
council wanted an amicable settlement. It did not want to sell its
birthright. The city council was
very willing to take advice from the
citizens. The taxes taken off the G.
T. P. might be placed on the citizens,
however, and that was a point the
council had to consider.
Basis Suggested
Mr, Dunn said he thought there
was a good chance to make a settlement on the basis of allowing exemption for the property used for
railway purposes.
Aid. Mobley said he thought so
too.
Mr. Dunn said the C. P. R. at Vancouver got 5,500 acres from the government, and one-third of the
privately owned property and exemption of taxes on the waterfront
for a long term of years.
Mr. Palmer said the exemption
still existed, and had about three
years more to run.
Some further discussion followed
in which flic suggestions were made
that In treating with the 0. T. P. the
question of handing over phik* ul
the city, the granting of a city hall
silo and various matters affecting the
commencement of work on company
undertakings should all be considered.
President Morris suggested getting down to a basis to bring some
proposition before the Board of
Trade on Monday night.
Mr. Dunn suggested that each
member come Monday night prepared to present a proposition.
Mr. Scott did not think this would
be wise. He suggested a committee
to get something in shape.
The chairman said that there were
a number of matters to settle between the city and the G. T. P. There
were a number of matters to be settled yet. He thought they should
get the representative of the G.T.P.
here to meet with the city council
to adjust the matter just as soon
as possible. The matter would be
settled he felt. At all times in the
past Mr. Hays and the Board of
Trade had had no difficulty In settling differences. The G. T. P. had
never interfered wh.i the conduct of
civic affairs. The officers were
friendly and as long as that continued the city had.nothing to fear
from them. He advised getting a
committee to work along some well
defined line. There was no desirt
to fight. The city council, he felt,
did not want to fight.
Mr. Scott suggested that a committee might confer with the council.
E. E. Clarke moved that a committee of five should be appointed
to meet with the council and arrange
as far as possible a basis for the
recommendation to be made on Mci -
day night.
Aid. Mobley said that the G. T. P.
was anxious to settle this. The council had endeavored to make no arrangement. The city wanted some
concessions as well as the company.
.Air. Palmer called attention to the
fact that there was a letter in June
asking for negotiations. That was
not complied with. Tho G..T. P.
could not be expected to come
ways. He favored getting down
work.
MODEL FARM FOR
SKEENA DISTRICT
Local News
MUSKEG ON STREETS
Work is to Start at Once on Enterprise That Will Mean
Much for the Agricultural Community of the
North—Trees Already Purchased
for Orchard Section.
The presence in the city this week
of Mr. F E. Mitchell, who is prominently identified with the locatiug of
a commercial and experimental farm
on the Skeena, afforded the opportunity to become better informed on
the objects and the plans of the promoters of the scheme. The farm is
to be at Kitmangar, which is described as admirably adapted for the
purposes intended. It is the centre
of a vast agricultural section where
the land is easily made ready for
cultivation.
In carrying out the plans, those interested have men to take charge
who are intimately acquainted with
the farming industry in all Its details and success is therefore assured.
In J. R. Anderson, formerly deputy
minister of agriculture in the province, they have a man who should
have a very exact knowledge of various aspects of the industry, in addition to Mr. Anderson there Is associated in the management of the
farm Mr. Mills, a graduate of the Agricultural College at Quelph, Ont.,
and who has had a successful experience in the maritime provinces, and
comes here with a vast fund of information which will be available In
the various lines in which it is proposed to carry on operations.
It is the Intention to devote about
iiiO acres to the farm proper and on
this area in addition to the work
which will be of a commercial character and not in any sense experimental, there will be attention given
to testing along various lines of the
industry so that the best results may
be obtained.
Surrounding the company's farm is
a large tract that will be available for
subdivision so that there will spring
up a prosperous settlement in that
section where the smaller individual
farmers will have the advantage of
the experimental work that will be
carried out.
A start will be made at once in the
work of organizing the farm. The
horticultural side of the Industry is
to receive  every  attention  as  it  is
felt that that will be a most important part of the work. Already 15,000
fruit trees have been purchased and
will be placed on the land next
spring. An early start will be made
in getting the orchard section ready
and by careful attention and the
thorough cultivation of the land it is
expected to hasten the producing
period of the plantation. In a new
country like this there will be an
entire absence of pests so that the
management will not have that difficulty to contend with. It is the intention to sow clover and plow it under among the trees so that the very
strongest, growth may he maintained.
•The fertility of the soil will be well
looked after and no attempt will be
li.ade to rob the orchard of the nourishment it requires in any attempt
to produce additional crops on the
same land.
Small fruits will receive attention
also and a part of the area will be
given over to that part of the industry which will give results very
much quicker than the orchard proper. Care has been taken by those in
charge lo make an exact study of all
the conditions so that varieties of
fruit adapted to the needs of tlu
place will be introduced.
The stock section of the farm will
also be early introduced. The management of the concern realize that
this is to he one of the most lucrative
sides of the industry, and accord-
«'„.y will place choice stock oi li.e
part of the farm intended for that.
Eventually there will be a creamery
established where the best resulls
will be obtained from the dairy produce. It is recognized that In Prince
Rupert there is a market unexcelled
anywhere in this line and the aim of
the company will be to supply that as
fully as possible.
The enterprise with which those
connected with this scheme are identified is certainly one that has great
possibilities and is of inestimable
value to the city of Prince Rupert
and the whole of this northern portion of the province.
The new warehouse of Kelly,
Douglas & Co. in the city will very
soon be complete as far as the outside work is concerned. The roof is
being put in place now and the iron
siding is also being rushed forward.

Tomorrow afternoon the committee appointed al the meeting of the
council of the Board of Trade will
meet with the members of the city
council to discuss the Question of
the railway assessment.

lodge F. O. E., No. 1945, guite a

The next meeting will be held on

business is to come up for transaction.

At last night's meeting of the city
council Aid. Hilditch called attention to the fact that a letter was read
at a meeting of the Board of Trade
from Mr. Hays which he had never
heard read in council. He wished
to know if it was real in council. He
was informed by several of the aldermen that it was read.
Fred Heal, Jr., of Aldermere, arrived in the city this week on his way
soutii where he will spend n few
weeks, returning in time to get home
before navigation closes. The summer in the Bulkley valley has been a
dry one, but the crops of hay and
root3 are quite up to the average. Mr.
Heal is enthusiastic over the opportunities in the valley for farming. He
lias been (here for nearly seven years
and is saiisfied that it is beaten nowhere in the province as an agricultural section.

For the past two or three days Dr.
R. E. McKechnie, of Vancouver, and
his brother, Eberts McKechnie, now
also a resident of Vancouver, have
been In the city. They left last evening by the steamer Prince Rupert
for their homes after a delightful
outing in the northern interior of the
province.
Dr. McKechnie is one of the best
known medical men In the province,
lie was a member of a former government of the province, that of C. A.
Semlln, in which he served as pro-
al- | vinciitl secretary.

of modern life and of looking over
the northern interior of the province,
the brothers set out several weeks
ago. They made their way in from
Prince Rupert by way of the Skeena
river, pushing their course into the
region about Manson Lake, now
known to few other than the mining prospectors, and proceeded well
on In the direction of Parsnip River.
At slate Creek they had the opportunity of seeing what Is being done
on the property of the old 43rd company. The work under the charge
of the manager, Mr. Beach, is not
being pushed forward at a very rapid
rate at present as the company are
delaying operations until somewhat
better transportation facilities are afforded.
Speaking of the outlook   In    that
of the greatest mineral sections in
tiie province is awaiting its turn to
be opened up. Dr. McKechnie, who
is well acquainted with the province
has no hesitation in pronouncing the
area which will be opened in the
northern interior as excelling that
which is to be found in the south-
em portion of British Columbia. The
character of the country lends itself
more easily to transportation. There
are vast areas of level and rolling
land through which it is hot difficult to proceed. While it is a land
of immense distances there is not
the same difficulties in the way of
mountains as in some of tbe other
parts of the province.
It will, in his opinion, be a district
that will be productive of vast return i from its deep placers. His
brother pointed out that practically
every stream !n that country carried
colors. There are immense riches undoubtedly hidden away tin re t ':'' the
opening up of the country by tho
providing of the means of communication will be followed by rich returns from tiie gold mining. The (1.

country, however, (hat will give the

At last evening's meeting
city council, in the absence
Worship .Mayor Stork, Aid.
was elected to preside.
W. L. Barker, acting for Morrow &,
Frizell, asked permission to dump on
the street earth which was taken
from the excavation for a building,
it was proposed lo refer tills to
the streets committee.
Aid. Pattullo hoped that some
means of disposing of this muck
could be found. It was important
that building should not be prevented.
Aid. Lynch saw no advantage in referring this to the streets committee.
Tiie engineer was opposed to putting
this on the street, where it was only
to be moved by the city later on. The
council should decide this matter. If
a dumping ground was not found it
would be impossible to go on with
building.
Aid. Mclntyre was In favor of allowing the petit ion. They agreed
not to put it nearer than three feet
to grade.
Mil. Hilditch said he favored tho
granting of this now. Ii would only
be a few months until the whole matter was settled and the streets would
be brought to grade so there would
lie no 'dumping place then.
The motion rallied, ii being added
cm the suggestion of Aid. Pattullo
that the work should be clone subject
to the engineer's direction.
The streets committee recommended tbe purchase of 1,4Tb feel of eight
Inch sewer, pipe and LiTO '■'■'-< ol si*
inch pipe and at the same time call
for tenders for a larger quantity.
Aid. Lynch pointed out that it had
been considered wise to do this.
Aid. Hilditch agreed with this as It
would show then just what could bo
saved on purchasing a larger amount.
The report was adopted.
The streets committee recommended that the council refuse the
request of Aid. Dyer to remove rock
from the alley, it being deemed inadvisable to go to this expense at the
present   time.
The report was adopted.
On the city engineer's report upon
the petition for a plank roadway on
Seventh avenue from .McBride street
to Fulton street, it was recommended
that the work be not carried out in
its entirety. If the work were carried out il would cost $85,127 for
making a cut near Dunsmuir street,
and $5,127 for planking. If the road
stopped 140 feet, west of Dunsmuir
street the cost would be only $.1,S70.
The streets committee recommended
that the work be carried out on the
$.1,870  basis.
It was decided to refer the matter back to the petitioners.
The streets committee recommended the widening of Fulton street to
the new hydrant on Comox.
Aid. Lynch felt thai if a hydrant
were necessary then It were wise to
have the street  widened.
On motion of Aid. Pattullo the report was adopted, the engineer to
be instructed to proceed with the
work.

GOOD PROFIT IN FISH
B.C. Packers Association Has Had Heavy
Returns According to
Report.
Dividend  Paid  to  Shareholders  Was
a Very  Liberal One—llusi-
ness  Extended
In his annual report to stockholders, General Manager William 11.
Parker, of the Britisli Columbia
Packers' Association, says:
"We have incorporated under the
laws of British Columbia so as to
avoid the heavy N'ew Jersey taxes,
also the new United States corporation excise tax of one per cent on net
earnings. Nearly all the shareholders consented to the change, and
most have already exchanged their
certificates for new ones; we are now
a Britisli Columbia corporation. The
costs of the change have not yet been
paid. We operated 22 canneries—
15 on the Fraser river and seven in
the north, and one cold storage plant.
Our pack was 292,578 cases, besides
the usual quantity of mild cured sal-
man, fresh and frozen halibut and
salmon. Prices for canned salmon
started low, but improved later,
when it was known that the pack
would be smaller than expected.
"Out Nimpkish hatchery liberated
5,055,000 sockeye fry. All other hatcheries—both dominion and provincial—turned out a large quantity of
sockeye fry. The natural spawning
grounds were also well seeded, particularly those of the Fraser River.
"We have purchased the steamer
Roman to supply halibut for freezing
and fresh shipments; she is the finest
vessel in the business and is doing
very well. Owing to there being
three Canadian vessels fishing for
halibut, the limted market is kept
well supplied and prices are lower.
"We have purchased two more
canneries on the Skeena River—the
Dominion and Alexandra—and have
rebuilt the Cunningham cannery.
"As the 'big run' failed to materialize on the Fraser River last
year, we have carried over about
100,000 cases empty cans; we have
made that quantity, so are prepared
for a pack of 200.000 cases. Stocks
are light everywhere, so in consequence the demand good.
"The balance sheet shows a net
profit of $356,527, after deducting
$45,123 for depreciation. We have on
hand and consigned salmon valued
at $83,835, and have used in preparation for the 1910 pack (including

SHIPPING   OF   SILK
the Union Pacific out of San Francisco to the Great Northern out of
Seattle are doing all in their power
to secure this important part of the
freight trade.
'I he first train left the local depot
at 3.30 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
The Empress arrived at the dock at
7:00 o'clock Sunday morning, but it
was 8.00 o'clock before the longshoremen could get to the silk. By
3.00 o'clock the seven baggage cars
were loaded, sealed and ready for the
trip. A switch engine was on the
spot, and the minute the signal was
given the seven cars were pulled out
from the sheds, coupled on the special train of five coaches occupied by
the Chinese passengers of the vessel and shoved into the depot yard.
Here a waiting engine was coupled
mi, and in less than half an hour
from the time when the last bale
was stowed away, the "Silk Special"
was on her way east. The five coaches
on the rear end of the silk train were
occupied by the Chinese from the
Empress, who were on their way
east.
Yesterday afternoon as good time
was made in the local yard as the
day before. The cars were loaded
about 4.00 o'clock, and an hour later
were on their way east.
C. P. R. officials are taking a great
deal of pride in the silk trade, and
every person in the operating department, from the superintendent down,
nas been doing his share toward
sending the specials across the country in record time.

Thirteen cars of silk, whose total
value will exceed $1,250,000, have
been shipped out of Vancouver by
the C.P.R., In the past two days, says
the News-Advertiser of a recent date.
The cars went in two trains, seven
leaving the local yards Sunday afternoon, and the remaining six yesterday. The first train consisted of the
Shipment from the C. P. R. liner Empress of Japan, while the second was
loaded from the cargo of the Water-
house liner Ay merle, These shipments hold the local record for two
consecutive days.
The trains carrying these consignments will have the right-of-way
over all other trains on the road,
and are expected to arrive In New
York within six days. Because of the
great competition in the silk traffic
the operating officials of the C. P. R.
are doing everything In their power
to havo the two trains reach New
York on the day mentioned, If not
ahead or that time.
The fact that these two important
shipments should be sent east over
the C. P. R., Is simply an indication
of the local company's ability to

half of 1910 at 376,271 gross tons,
compared with 327,449 tons in the
last half of 1909, and 349,641 tons
in the first half. This is an increase
of 48,822 tons compared with the
last half of 1909, and of 26,630 tons
compared with the first half. The
production In the first half of 1910
was the greatest in any half year.
Tbe production of bessemer pig
Iron in the first half of 1910 amounted to 129,208 tons, against 69,906
tons in the last half of 1909, and 99,-
639 tons in the first half of that year.
The production of basic pig iron in
the first half of 1910 amounted to
165,984 tons, against 192,853 tons
in the last half of 1909, and 165,112
tons in the first half.
On June 30th, 1910, Canada had
sixteen completed blast furnaces, of
which twelve were in blast and four
were Idle. Of this total twelve were
equipped to use coke and four to
use charcoal. In addition three coke
furnaces were being built and one |
coke furnace had been partly rejected, and its construction indefinitely
suspended.
During the first half of 1910 the
total number of furnaces in Canada
actually In blast for the whole or a
part of the period was fourteen. A
rather encouraging record.
 o	
AN OLD PLANT.
One of the most useful plants in
existence Is the sugar, cane and the
youngest of its species which is now
alive is said to be at least 2,000
years old. ,
"A plant as old as that?" you cry.
"Why, it would be quite worn out,
and good for nothing!"
But this is not so with sugar cane,
or you would have to look to some
other source for the sparkling lumps
you see on the table at breakfast and
tea time.
The reason that Biigar canes are
so very old is this: Most plants, as
you know, reproduce or "propagate"
themselves in various ways, and if
left to Itself the sugar cane would
do this by seeding. Sugar planters,
however, did not care to wait until
the seed grew up Into strong plants,
so that for all the 2,000 years that it
has been under cultivation they have
grown it by means of "suckers" that
spring from the original stem. Thus
every "new" plant Is In reality an
old one. The poor sugar cane has
become so weakened by this time
through not having been allowed to
grow a3 nature intended, that It Is
very difficult now to get It to seed
at all. If this could not be done it
would in time die ont altogether, and
most likely the beet-root would have
to supply us with the sugar we cannot do without.
"No one who has made the direct
acquaintance of the new Cariboo
country can fully appreciate its
capabilities and its possibilities,"
said Premier McBride, referring to
his recent tour into that country.
"Look at the map and you see great
patches marked for mountains everywhere. That exactly fits our vague
ideas of the country fashioned upon
our memories of Cariboo as a rugged
land of gold. It is a vision ot the
upper Fraser and the Nechaco that
is destined to be shattered, however,
when one visits the land and sees for
himself its widespread reaches of natural farming land, its splendid plateaus, its vast benches and riverside
level areas.
"The present stage of development
is equally surprising. Not only at
Fort George, but all along the way
the people are optimistic, enterprising, active. The extent of cultivation accomplished and the character
of the buildings and other tangible
evidences of permanent settlement
are most gratifying, as well as amazing. There is no other word to express the situation. To see the country of the upper Fraser for one's self
is in the nature of a revelation."
Of the specific object of his trip—
the final determination of the site at
which the Fort George government
offices will be located—Hon. Mr. McBride has no announcement to make
at the present juncture. In company with Hon. Mr. Carter-Cotton,
he visited both Fort George (with its
miles of splendidly laid out streets
and its multiplied evidences of the
influences of a great colonization
company doing its work on a magnificent scale) and also South Fort
George, the present centre of business and population for, the locality.
Contrasted conditions and prospects will be fully considered; the
opinions of the Premier and \,the
president of the council will be laid
before their fellow members of the
executive; and a decision will be
made public in due course. Meanwhile the work of preparing the records will go forward without delay,

INCREASED POPULATION
Large Additions to Canada's Immigration Dining the Past Year
Homestead entries for the six
months ending July 31, 1910, according to the statistics at Ottawa,
show an increase of 11,852 over the
similar period of the year 1909, the
figures being 33,414 entries against
21,564.
For the month of July alone there
were 4,260 entries, of which 1,248
were made by Canadians residing in
Canada; 58 by Canadians returning
from the United States; 959 by
United States citizens, and with the
exception of 34 entries, the whole of
the remainder were made by persons
from the British isles and Northern
European countries in which the government is carrying on immigration
work.
Of the entries from the United
States over one-half were made by
people coming from North Dakota
and Minnesota. Patents were issued
in July, 1910, for 248,223 acres of
land as against patents for 186,013
acres in the corresponding month of

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
CHANGES IN TRADE
Effects  That  Tehuantepec  Rsilway is
Having Upon Commerce.
An   Augury   of   What   the   Panama
Canal Will do For Carrying
Business
The effect of the Panama Canal
upon the trade of the world and the
part It will play in conjunction with
the ports of the Pacific Coast of
America in altering the trade routes
is a subject of much conjecture.
Prince Rupert will have its part in
the changed conditions that may he
created.
At the present time the Tehuantepec railway is working a wonderful
change in trade and diverting by way
of Mexico trade that formerly pursued other routes.
The opening to trade of Mexico's
southern provinces by the construction of the Tehuantepec railway is
dealt witli in a report to the board of
trade by the British consul at Salina
Cruz, W. S. Buchanan. Reporting
on the trade of the district for 1909
he says:—
Salina Cruz as the Pacific terminus
of the Tehuantepec railway, is rapidly taking a place in the world as a
shipping port. The tonnage entering
the port amounted to 799,076 tons
gross register, an increase of 47 per
cent over the year 190S, the vessels
numbering 219, an increase of 36 per
cent. The transcontinental traffic
handled through the ports of Salina
Cruz and Puerto Mexico, by the Tehuantepec National railway (the
Mexican Isthmus route), is rapidly
increasing, the freight carried during
1909 reaching close to 1,000,000
tons. The exportations and importations through Salina Cruz are not
a correct index of the trade of this
part of the state of Oaxaca and the
state of Chiapas,- and especially of
the trade with the United Kingdom,
for the great bulk of all exportations
and importations of these districts go
through the port of Puerto Mexico
or Vera Cruz, the nearer and natural
route to the eastern states of America and European markets. The imports for the fiscal year 1908-09 show
a decrease of $747,635 Mexican currency, or about 300 per cent. This
great decrease was not In the general
trade of this district, but was due to
the very much reduced importations
of coal, cement, lumber and building material, etc., since the completion of the port works and the Tehuantepec and Pan-American railways.
The exports for the fiscal year
1908-09 show an increase of $637,-
565 Mexican currency over the year
1907-8—about 300 per cent. This
increase was principally of coffee,
mahogany and cedar, henequen and
Ixtle from the state of Chiapas.
The temporary entrance to the Inside dock has been filled in, and the
whole proposed length of wharfage
built  of  stone  and  cement,   is  now
United States, whiskies and gin from
the United Kingdom, and wines from
the continent, the merchants are supplied by the wholesale houses of Vera
Cruz and Mexico City, who send commercial travellers throughout all this
part of Mexico.
The Pan-American railway connects with the Tehuantepec National
railway at Gamboa, 29 % miles from'
Salina Cruz, and is completed to the
Guatemalan border, a distance of
284% miles. A railway bridge is
being built over the Suchiate river,
which separates the Republic of
Mexico from that of Guatemala. It
is expected to make connection with
the railways in Guatemala by the end
of June, 1910. The line is being
equipped with new rolling stock, the
roadbed is being improved and the
wooden bridges are being replaced
by steel structures. This railway
opens up the slate of Chiapas, which
is said to equal any state in Mexico
in natural resources. A daily train
is run from Gamboa to Tapachult
and twice a week from Tapachula to
the border.
The Increase of the railway business in 1909 over 1908 was 66.2 per
cent, and the importations from the
United States and Europe handled by
the railway into Chiapas increased 75
per cent. The principal towns on
the line are Juchitan (population
18,000), Tonala (population 12,000)
and Tapachula (population 17,000).
Jalisco, a new town on the line, is
the feeding point of the Cintalapa
and Frialeso valleys, of which the
principal cities are Tuxtla Gutierrez
(population 22,000), and San Cristobal (population 25,000). Tuzla
Gutierrez is the capital of the state
and is connected with Palisco by an
automobile stage line.
Japan's naval estimates for 1909-
19.U was $37,450,000.
 o	
Canada, in 1909, exported gold-
bearing quartz, gold-dust, and nuggets to the value of $7,597,960.

THE LABOR QUESTION
Friday, September 9,  1910
A FAST AGE
Tiie fast pace at which all business
lite and general development is carried on at the present time is often
tbe subject of criticism, and its evil
effects on the race made the subject
of comment. These criticisms may bo
correct, but in the development of a
new country this prevailing tendency
of tbe time is fraught with beneflci-
ent results.
Its effect is seen in the line of agriculture, usually one of the branches
of industry to be effected least by
changed ideas. While In older sections
of tlie country the settlers were left
to build up homes for themselves
with little assistance except tbat
which they gained by their own experience, it can be seen that in this
part of the province, the newest in
the advance of colonization advantages are to be afforded the settler
that  was formerly unheard of.
Along th" Skeena private enterprise as well as government aid is to
be devoted to simplifying the problems that the farmer and the horti-
culturalisl will have to face. Experimental plots in ilie very earliest
stages of settlement are to be provided and in this way every small
farmer will be aide lo save considerable sums and many years of experimenting in solving questions which
must be decided as to the best
methods to pursue in this country.
The farm at Kitwangar to be run as
a private enterprise, and the experimental sections that the provincial
governmei 1 will assist in the district,
should res.lit in a saving of many
years in opening the country up on
a commercial basis as far as the
farming industry is concerned.
 o	
SHIPPING   SILK
Attention is directed to the news
columns where the anxiety of the C.
P. R. to bold the trade in silk shipments across the continent is referred to. For some time the C. P. R.
lias catered to this trade, going to
the greatest trouble to ensure its
continuance.
It is a matter that requires little
argument to show that Prince Rupert must, when the G. T. P. is completed, be tbe special shipping point
for this class of trade. With a saving of at least two days in the carriage across the Pacific, the silk
cargoes destined for New York would
be in Winnipeg or Chicago on the
w..y eastward if landed here, instead
of jus,1 reaching port if shipped by
way of Vancouver or Seattle by the
other routes. In a commodity of
such value as silk where time is of
such importance, the shortest and
quickest route will undoubtedly be
selected and the trade must centralize here.
WESTERN   REFEREES
A. W. Smithers Discusses the Situation
After Visit to
North.
He    Advises    Co-operation    Between
Governments in Securing British  Woikiiigini'ii
The Nationals, the new champions
of he N. L. V., must play toy the
Min i Cup under Western officials,
according to a decision banded down
by ihe i istei 9 of tin' trophy. Wednesday the Nationals wrote Mr. P. D.
Ross to the ' ffect that they were
prepared to go out io play New
Westminster at' once, provided an
easterner was appointed as referee.
Mr. Ross announced ■ 'Sterda.\ Hint
theii i ondltional challenge had been
run ii, which mean." Hint the Nationals must do as did Regina and
.Moi'in-ill clubs and play under I'a-
cilic   iioasl  men.
Mr. Ross wired President Lecours
of his derision and th. National officer repli d that Hie French-Canadian club was forwarding another
challenge.
The names of W. E. Dltchburn,
Lionel York, Mi. t Barr, TIalley Wilson and Boh De' ir vere suggested
by tbe New Westminster club as
suitable referees for the two games.
The Nationals have sug' jsted that
the games be played on September 17
and 2 4 and these dates are agreeable
to the trustees. A proposition has
been Informally made by officials of
the R. A. & I. society tbat the games
be played during the exhibition week,
and if they do the champions are to
be paid $4,000. Separate arrangements would be made with the Nationals.
Interviewed by the Victoria Times,
A. to. Smithers .chairman of Hie G.
'I'. I', railway board, expressed himself on ihe subject of labor conditions after ills study of conditions in
Ihe north.
"What most concerns Canada at
the present time is to keep the credit
of the country unimpaired so that
capital may be induced to come in
and develop your wonderful natural
resources. That is the feature that
has struck me throughout my trip
ever since 1 landed at Montreal," said
Mr. Smithers.
"Let the credit of the country be
once Impaired and the country will
get a great setback," he continued.
"You cannot progress without money
and most of this must come from
England. Even the United States,
with nearly one hundred million people, has had to borrow largely from
England within the past year, and
will continue to do so.
Scenic Investments
"The people of England will not
continue to pour their money in here
at the very low rate of interest paid
unless they can see that their investments are secured. All we get is
four per cent. It cannot be expected
that more will lie sent unless the
present labor conditions are relieved.
We find it impossible to get half the
men we want on the Grand Trunk
construction work, and yet the men
are paid three dollars, and three and
a half dollars a day. There was a
me when men were underpaid, I
acknowledge that, but today I consider they are getting more than
tneir share.
"1 fear tthe people of certain sections of this country are taking a
wrong attitude towards capital. Take
for instance, Prince Rupert, which
we visited recently and which owes
its very existence to the Grand Trunk
railway. They told us that we were
getting large dividends, and that they
were going to exact all sorts of unheard-of taxes, when as a matter of
fact we have been in Canada for
fifty years and have never received
a dividend yet. This sort of treatment is not encouraging. The construction work on the railway is already costing us a great deal more
than we calculated upon simply because  of the  cost  of  labor."
"What do you suggest?" inquired
the  interviewer.
Governments (o Co-operate
"I think," answered Mr. Smithers,
that the Dominion and Provincial
governments should work together
for the purpose of bringing people
into this country from England and
other parts of Europe. There should
be some "claxation of the immigra-
ioii laws against these people. The
present laws ar too stringent. They
make for the breaking up of families
ind are a detriment to the country.
You want to take only the strong
members of the family, but. if a whole
family wishes to come here you must
lake them all. England has never
had any barriers against anybody,
and 1 do not see why you should.
Then there should he an effort made
to foster immigration. People from
Europe should be shown that they
are wanted. I understand that you
have done something along this line,
hut more is needed.
"I say again, that under the present conditions it is impossible for the
capital you require to be procured,
and even the investments which have
already been made lire endangered.
I say this here, although I would not
say it in London, for I am loo miicn
interested in the country to speak
against it. I feel, though, that I
should speak plainly to you."
"You can understand Hie position
■>! Hie working men of this town, for
instance, Mr. Smithers," explained
the interviewer. "Mosl of them have
purchased their own homes, and they
are naturally very jealous of doing
anything which will imperil these, or
which will lower In any way the
standard of living."
"Yes, I understand that," was Mr.
Smithers' reply. "But you see that
if capital stops coming in here, there
w. ", be no money for the working
man to keep up his payments or for
anything else. It Is absolutely essential to you that you keep your
credit good, and under present conditions I cannot see how this can be.
We do not regret having come here.
We believe the country has great resources, and that eventually Ihe railway will pay, but at the present time
the outlook Is not bright unless the
present  labor conditions  are  alleviated."

In Egypt, persons placed under
police supervision, and unable to find

good behavior, are employed, if they
so desire, in cultivation or other
work at a daily wage.
The finance committee reported on
Tuesday evening recommending that
the contracts for the different sections of the local improvement work
on Second avenue he awarded to the
lowest tenderers, as follows: Section
one, to S. H. Watson & Co., at $29,-
134; section two, to S. P. McMordie,
at $12,335; section three, to S. P.
McMordie, at $29,rl8; and section
four, to S. P. McMordie, at $42,391.
It was recommended that Mr. Mc-
Mordle's contract be made on the
basis which he submitted, and not on
the basis of eighty per cent and twenty per cent of rock and earth.
In reply to Aid. Hildltch, Aid.
Lynch explained that the McMordie
tender was to be awarded just on the
same basis as the Watson tender.
The basis suggested by the city engineer was only an approximate
amount. The work was paid for according to what was actually taken
out.
Wants Sewers
The city engineer also reported at
the meeting in favor of purchasing a
considerable quantity of sewer pipe
to be used in section one. He pointed out that the pipe would take some
time to arrive and it would be cheaper to put some of the sewers in while
the work of grading was proceeding.
The report recommended the purchase of 1,470 feet of six inch sewer
pipe, and the same amount of eight
inch  pipe.
Considerable discussion followed
this. The two reports being really
considered together as they were
closely related to one another.
Aid. Pattullo believed that the
work in section one could not be proceeded with very well until the sewers were put in. There would have
to be a bylaw passed upon by the
people before this was done. It
looked like a rather serious proposl
tion.
His Worship said he thought that
the idea of the engineer was that
the  pipe  should  be  ordered   so   as
not to delay matters until after the reading of  the  minutes,    raised    a

There's nothing about a set of

point in connection with the awarding of the tenders for the second avenue grading. He had understood
that the tender of R. A. McMordie
had been accepted. Now it appeared
without his knowledge, that the
streets committee had altered the report to award it to S. P. McMordie.
Explanations followed, It being
pointed out that the tender of R. A.
McMordie was found not to be the
lowest. The difference arose over the
estimated amount of rock and earth.
The price per yard for rock and earth
was, it was pointed out, the important part.
A'd. Hildltch appeared not to be
very well convinced on the point, but
the minutes were adopted.

bylaw was passed.
Aid. Pattullo said he did not like
raising this but it was something that
had to be faced. Suppose the bylaw
did not carry.
His Worship thought they might
go ahead with the contracts as
recommended in the report.
Aid. Pattullo pointed out that this
question of the sewer was very closely identified with the carrying out
of the contract.
Could Proceed With Work
Aid. Lynch said that there was a
lot of work that could be done on
Second avenue   before    the    sewers
were dealt with.
Aid. Mobley proposed that the report be adopted. That would satisfy
the contractors as to how the contracts were to go. It would not be
necessary to sign up the contracts
for a few days.
Aid. Hilditch said he would like
to know if at this late day the improvements on Second avenue were
to be held up until a bylaw was
passed by the people to supply
sewers. He would like to know
whether Aid. Mobley's few days
meant a period of fifty days or more
until the bylaw was floated.
Aid. Mobley said he only proposed
to wait until the question of obtaining money was settled.
Aid. Pattullo pointed out that this
did not overcome the difficulty of the
sewer question. The sewers could
not be put in under general revenue.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that if
the whole work had been done under
a genera' loan this difficulty would
not havo risen. As it was now the
parts of Second avenue which had
the sewers had a "cinch" on the local
improvements. He favored now going ahead with the local Improvements whether the sewers were to
put in or not. It would cost
more to put tbe sewers in later, but
the work should not stop now they
hart gone this far.
Aid. Lynch was sure it would be
three months before the difficulty in
connection with the sewers would be
met. It would be cheaper to do the
blasting now before more buildings
were erected. He felt it was safe
to adopt the report and go on with
tbe work.
The motion carried to adopt the
report relative to the carrying out
of the work and awarding the contracts.
Sewer Pipe
The question of the engineer's report on the purchase of sewer pipe
was then considered on its merits.
Aid. Hilditch proposed to endorse
the engineer's report and purchase
the pipe.
Aid. Naden said this might be all
right, but he feared if they started
ordering pipe like this there might
be no end to the ordering. Other
parts would want it. He would favor
purchasing only enough to meet the
imemdiate needs. It would be better
to go into the whole question of
sewers at once.
Aid. Lynch thought the city might      On Wednesday evening Aid. Mcln

as is his wont the question of the

further advance made in connection
with it.
The city clerk reported that Mr.
Durant had informed him that owing
to the fact that there had been wire
trouble he had received nothing further from headquarters.
Aid. Hilditch wished to know if
anything bad been done in connection with the securing of poles, if
the council had decided to go ahead
with this work it might he well to
secure the poles.
Aid. Lynch said it would take
about three or four weeks to secure
these poles.
Aid. Mobley said there was no
doubt that if the council authorized
it the committee would be only too
willing to call for tenders.
Aid. Xaden moved that the committee be instructed to call for tenders.
This motion passed.

Aid. Hilditch feared the bringing

be served at the cost of the whole
Ing shortly.
Aid, Hilditch suggested that the
engineer might make a weekly report
to  the  council  which   would   obviate
city without the other  parts  being so many inquiries of this kind,
served he felt   like    recommending |    Aid. Pattullo suggested that alder-
fhat sewers be put in under the local
improvement plan.
Cheaper Work
Aid. Pattullo said all ho proposed
to havo the sewers provided for in
men might get tlie information at the
city hall whenever they sought it.
Aid. Mclntyre saw no reason for
such delays on Third avenue. He did
not press this work because he lived
Mr. F. E. Mitchell, of Victoria, who
has wide interests in the northern
part of the pro. ince, spent a few days
in the city this week, leaving later
for the upper Skeena where he will
look into some of the business which
he has in hand there. The two propositions that are at the present occupying bis attention are the town-
site of Ellison and the inauguration
of the model farm at Kitwangar,
which is within easy reach of the
townsite.
The townsite of Ellison Mr. Mitchell has carefully planned so that
ample provision is made for the population that is sure to centre there.
The G. T. P. is Interested with him
and his associates in the proposition
and the payments will be made to the
company's officials at Winnipeg, just
the same as in the case of the town-
sites platted on the prairies and
which are to be the divisional points
on the line.
1 The town of Ellison, it is pointed
out, is the first of the divisional
points to be set aside in the province of British Columbia. The site
which is within about four miles of
Hazelton, is on the line of the G.T.P.
and has a good frontage on the
Skeena River, where tbe wharves of
Foley, Welch & Stewarl will be established during the days of construction, Provision is made for
parks and the townsite is laid out on
the most approved system known to
municipal engineers. A division of
the property between tbe owning
company and the government has
been made and the lots are being
put on tbe market.. Mr. Mitchell has
made arrangements to put the lots
on sale In Prince Rupert in common
with other cities on the coasl.
As the headquarters of the construction company during the time
the line is being built, there is a
very large trade assured right at the
start. It will also become the distributing point, it is felt, at once for
a large share of the Interior trade.
From that point there will be easy
access to the Kispiox and the Babine
country which Is now attracting so
much attention. It is also in close
touch with many of the rich valleys
in the north that are now opening up
to the world, and which in the next
few years will become hives of industry supporting thousands nf
famlllies in affluence owing to (lie
richness of the soil and the valuable markets that are to be found
for all the produce that can be raised
by the settlers.
Surrounding the townsite of Ellison is a rich agricultural sod ion
which will be the means In Itself of
supporting a very considerable population in the town alone. Joined
with this is the railway business nnd
the Immense territory that Is to lie
reached from this place as a centre.
The population. Il in predicted, will
advance by leaps and bounds and
those in a position to judge, prophesy
that it will be the most prosperous of
the interior cities not excluding tbe

A ROMANTIC CHASE
Supposed Dead Man Worked Here-Now
Residing at Vancouver.
Insurance Fight Leads to Discovery
of Anaconda Hock Cutter Relieved to be Dead
At the Lake Buntzen tunnel camp
construction, lie had left, changing
his name to avoid being held responsible for his passage north.
Lost the Trail
With this clue run to a ragged end,
the hunt practically had to commence
again from the beginning, and,
through another labor agency, Horri-
gan was located at Field, B.C., working for Contractors Macdonald &
Gzowski. At this time he had still
failed to resume his real name and
was travelling under the one he had
adopted when he left the Skeena. By
the time the detectives had made
sure of the scent at Field, however
NOTICE
Railway Company,   near  Vancouver,
a   man   has  been   located  and   posi
tively identified as the man for whom
the Thiel detective agencies of the
entire Pacific coast have been prosecuting a vigorous search during the
past two years. The chase for him
brought the detectives to Prince Rupert at one stage of the game and it
was found that he had worked on the
G.T.P.   construction
The discovery and Identification of
the man, Dan Horrigan, thought to
have perished in a Montana blizzard,
puts an end to the lawsuit brought
by bis wife in the state courts for the
recovery of $5,000 life insurance
money from the Woodmen of the
World, and the Modern AVoodmen of
America, in which Horrigan held two
policies, and at whose instance was
inaugurated the search which resulted in Manager William McLeod, of
tii Vancouver Thiel agency, unearthing the much wanted absentee.
On Christmas eve in the year 1907,
Dan Horrigan, rock laborer, left his
wife and five children in Anaconda,
Ment., and dropped out of sight as
though the earth had opened to receive him.   Why he deserted his family Horrigan will not say, contenting
himself    with    the   remark that he
"just went away," but it is said by
friends of the family that the man
and   his  spouse   had     had     family
troubles,   which   culminated   in   the
disappearance of the breadwinner.
Sought  Divorce
Shortly after Dan  had  left, Mrs.
Horrigan brought suit in the state
courts   for   divorce,   but   before   the
application   could   be  decided   there
were  discovered,  after    the     spring
thaw,  the remains  of a man,  badly
decomposed, in one of the rocky crevices  of  Antelope  Gulch,  near  Anaconda.   This gruesome find Mrs. Horrigan and some friends identified as
all that was left of the missing man,
and a different complexion was put
on  tbe case.    The  suit  for  divorce
died a natural death, and instead, an
application was made to the Woodmen of the World and the Modern
Woodmen of America for the ?5,000
insurance in the two societies.  These
organizations  refused  to    pay    the
money, claiming that the body was
not that  of  their  brother  member.
The "widow" then went to law to recover the money asked for;  the societies enlisted   the  Thiel  Detective
agency to unearth Horrigan, and the
search commenced, finally developing
into a race against time, the detectives straining every energy to land
their  man  before  the  courts  could
decide in favor of Mrs. Horrigan's application.
All that the operatives had to go
by was a copy of the missing man's
signature and a faint, almost indistinguishable reproduction from a
photograph of him taken with a
group of other miners.
Came to Prince Rupert
The first clue came from Portland,
where it was learned that a Dan Horrigan had shipped from a labor
agency there to the railway construction tamps of the G.T.P. at Prince
Rupert. This threw the affair entirely into tho hands of the Vancouver
branch of the agency, where it re-
miiini'd till tho chase was brought to
a successful finish.
Last December Manager McLeod
unci his assistant, Mr. E, F. Steiner,
took the matter up In earnest nnd
began with a personal advertisement
They followed tin- Prince Rupert clue

a  linn  Horrigan in a Skeena  River

of   the   British    Columbia     Electric j 'heir quarry had left the mountains
and, by way of several odd Jobs, he
came hack to the coast again, gravitating for the second time to the
Western end of the G. T. P.
At each stage of the search tin-
operatives were gaining on their
man and by last fall, when he arrived at Prince Rupert from Field, they
had reduced his two-year lead to
twelve days, but the cold weather intervened and, though they knew Horrigan was in one of the camps up
the river, navigation closed and the
pursuit was off fo • :i time at l°ast.
However, there was other work to
be done. Mrs. Horrigan's suit in the
Montana courts agumst the two scoi-
eties in which her husband had been
insured was pressing on tie defendants, who saw an adverse judgment
staring them in tha Lice if something
definite could not be accomplished.
They accordi-igl? notified the local
Thiel office of their urgent nef.d and
through the efforts of the battel, two
men  were  located  in  this province,
one here and anrnher at Field, who'
knew Horrigan and who h id talked
villi  him.    Affidavits to  this  effect
were secured an1 /unvaried to Anaconda,   where   anjller   stav   ;
ceedings  was  graaitd  by  tin.
Again in North
The weather man turned the next
trick by  opening the  Skeena River
ice pack  with  a Chinook wind  and
Horrigan  sailed for Vancouver.
Expecting just such a move, Mr.
McLeod had taken care to notify all
the employment bureaus in the city
that the discovery of "his" Dan Horrigan would bring a suitable reward. This offer started the handicap
on the last leg of the course and one
fine day Employment Agent Conway
telephoned the local Thiel agency
that Horrigan was in his office. Detective Steiner went down hot foot
and there the long chase closed. It
was Horrigan all right and totally
ignorant of the fact that the operatives had been hunting him up and
down the country for two years. This
was about the middle of last June.
The next move was to assure the
Montana courts that the man really
was alive, for Dan, after his trouble
with his wife, was obstinate in his
refusal to return to Anaconda. He
was perfectly willing to do anything
to aid the two societies of which he
was a member in their fight against
paying his insurance prematurely,
but back to Montana he would not
go.
