APPOINT A STAFF
Engineers and Firemen Named for Electric Lighting Plant in the
City. >
Question of Cost   Discussed at Council—Lights Will Soon
He on
The permanent engineering staff
for the new electric light plant of
the city has been appointed. This
was done at Tuesday's meeting of
the city council on the recommendation  of  the  Light    and     Telephone
Committee.
•
The report of the committee was
in favor of appointing James Black,
chief engineer at $125 a month;
Arthur Allison assistant engineer
at $115 ,and A. P. Gordon and J. W.
Fraser firemen at $100 a month.
It was announced that the plant
would be In operation about February 20.
Aid. Patiullo called attention to
the fact that he believed that there
was a bylaw under which the city
engineer was to be charged with
appointing the officials under him.
He did not know that these officials
■would come under this rule. He
thought it was wise to have officers
under the city engineer appointed
by  him.
Aid. Newton did not approve of
heads of departments having absolute power. These appointments
should be made by the engineer.
The engineer had his hands too
full now.
The report was adopted.
Cost of Lights
The Light and Telephone Committee also reported upon the scale of
charges. This stated that the
charges would he by meter, on a
basis of IS cents a kilowatt hour
with 20 per cent discount if paid
before the fifteenth of the month.
The minimum meter rent was put
at 25 cents a month with a minimum
LIBERAL APPROPRIAT
William Manson the Local Member Has Received for His Constituency About a Third of a Million Dollars—One
Tenth of the Bridge Vote for the Province Comes to This New Area—General Activity in
This Part of British Columbia Forecasted in the Grants Made at Victoria
on the Recommendation of the Representative From Here.
(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, Feb. 9.—The estimates for the year just presented in
the legislature shows very liberal
appropriations for the Skeena District as a result of the persistent efforts of William Hanson, M. P. P.,
for the district. Among the district
votes there stands $225,000 for
Skeena. This, however, does not
exhaust the amount that is to be expended in the riding.
For streets and sewers in Stewart
$26,000 has been set aside to meet
expenditures that will be necessary
through the decision not to grant incorporation for the place this year.
"'There has been very liberal grants
made in the matter of bridges, however, In Skeena.    The appropriation
which  is  in  addition  to tlie general
',ote for the disti ct, totals $00,u)0 !
This is one-tenth the bridge vote foi
the  enti-e   Province  of  British   Jo-
lu'ubla
Has Made Use of Time
The announcement from Victoria
of generous grants to this district
shows that William .Manson, the
member for the district, has been
employing his time to good advantage with the departments. It is
well known that throughout the
year the local representative has
taken advantage of every opportunity to bring the requirements of the
Skeena to the attention of the authorities, a fact which is shown to
have borne fruit by the grants made.
Last year the appropriation for
the   district     was     $150,000.     The
rjn nt this year .independent of the
bridge appropriation Is half as much
again as last year.
Progressive Policy
The vote made for the district is
an indication that the government is
alive to the needs of the Skeena and
realize the wonderful deveopment
which must come to it during the
year. The visits of the Hon. Thomas
Taylor to different parts of the constituency at the solicitation of Mr.
Manson have been followed by good
results.
Premier McBride and the other
members of his government fully understand what the northern part of
British Columbia Has to offer. They
realize that he era for development
is upon the new portion of the province  and   are  apparently   ready     to
lend their assistanci to make this
part what it is destined to become—
the most important section of the
province.
Preparing for Colonization
The vote with the bridge appropriation shows that then; Is to be a
policy of trail building in keeping
with the demands of settlement.
The government .realizes that \there
is to be a decided rush into the
fanning sections and will provide
the means of communication.
To the residents of Prince Rupert
the hub of tne whole district and the
place that must benefit to the fullest
by the advent of settlers the outlook
is indeed promising, it is another
indication  of  rapid  settlement.
The government is to take its full
responsibility in  that move.
the engineer to find out what such
an undertaking would cost and
would do nothing until that information  was forthcoming.
The report was adopted.
Cost  of  Plant
The question of the cost of the
plant was dealt with then in a report from F. Burns, the electrical
engineer. This went fully into the
operations and the cost as far an
he was able to estimate. During
September there was J26S.50 expended; in October it. was $2,-
268.99; in November $95; in December, $2,97S; in January, $3,-
207.37;   or a  total  of  $11,013.81.
The city clerk said that the expenditures, he believed, in connection with It had been about $28,000
to December 31.

The city council at the last meeting had a communication from Williams and Manson the late city solicitors, asking for $496.50, being the
amount they claimed as due them
In view of the fact that since their
services were disposed with without
notice. Tae letter made a peremptory demand for the amount. It
was referred to the finance committee for report.
At the last sitting of the coun-
cil, Aid. Hilditch raised the point

man was married. He did not think
such a thing should occur. The finance committee should look Into it.

money was not paid in because it
was not due.
The matter was referred to the
finance committee.
PLANNING TIIE WORK
Hospital Board Orgcr.izes for the Year
-Committees are
Formed.
Meeting  Will  lie Held Shortly with
the Ladies' Auxiliary
The new hospital board held a
meeting on Tuesday afternoon when
the president W, (1. Stewart, presided. There were present all the
members of the board, J. A. Kirk-
patrlck, M. M. Stephens, C. V. Bennett, II. II. Clarke, P. 1. Palmer,
.1. G. Scott, .1. Thompson, O. II. .Nelson and the honorary secretary, A.
Cuthbert.
The meeting was one for organization largely. On tne suggestion
of the president, standing committees were struck as follows:
Finance committee: P. I. Palmer, M. M. Stephens, J. A. Kirkpatrick.
Executive committee: II. H.
Clarke, J. G. Scott, D. G. Stewart.
House committee: O. II. Nelson,
C. V. Bennett, J. Thompson.
E. H. Mortimer was appointed
auditor.
Several accounts and a number of
communications were referred to the
different committees to deal with.
Applications for the position of
managing secretary were received.
It was decided to call for applications for the position for a week,
and at he end of that time the house
committee should deal with the applications.
li, was suggested by the president
that the board should meet the Ladies' Auxiliary affecting the hospital
so that there could be a clearer understanding of the division of the
work.
The matter was left in the hands
of the president to arrange such a
meeting.
It was also arranged that the
hoard should visit the hospital at an
early date and make an inspection
of it.
charge per month of $1 exclusive of
meter rent.
In reply to a question as to how
this would work out in the matter
of charges, Aid. Clayton explained
that six lamps of 16-candle power
running five hours, would cost 30
cents.
Expert Advice
The committee, on the recommendation of the city engineer presented
a report asking that an expert electrical engineer be asked to make a
report upon the best means of extending the plant, either by producing gas or by coal as fuel.
Aid. Newton wanted to know it
the man in charge of the electric
light plant was a competent man
for the position. He aid not know
anything about his qualifications.
Aid. Smith said that he believed
he was. He was not a man to report upon the merits of a new plant.
Aid. Newton said he asked this
because he understood that there
had been lack of system In the work
which had caused a considerable
amount of delay.
Vancouver's Shortcomings
Aid. Smith said that he believed
the delay was due to the poor market In Vancouver. In other lines It
was common to be held up on orders
from Vancouver. There would be
assurances from Vancouver firms
that they could fill orders at once.
When orders were placed It was
found they had to be placed In the
east.
Aid. Pattullo felt that this was
true In other ways. In spite of these
delays there was no place which had
done more knocking of Prince Rupert than Vancouver. He felt that It
might be well If orders could be
placed direct in the east and thus
cut  out  Vancouver   as   middlemen.
Aid. Hllditch was not satisfied
with the report presented. He had
expected a comprehensive report.
He had had little delay in ordering
In Vancouver.
The acting mayor pointed out that
the council was somewhat out of order In running from one report, that
relative to an expert engineer, to
the question of the cost of the plant
Which was dealt with In another report. With respect to the question
of an expert he said he had asked

ESTIMATED REVENUE
AND EXPENDITURE
Provincial Government Brings Down the Estimates for
the Year for Consideration of the Legislature-
Last Year's Outlay Well Within
the Mark.
VICTORIA, Feb. 10.—The estimates of the revenues a.id expenditures for the fiscal year ending
March 31, 1912, have been presented
to the House by the finance minister, Hon. Price Ellison. They show
an increase In revenue of about fourteen per cent Is anticipated for the
twelve months. The prospective
receipts are put at $8,192,101.06, as
compared with $7,000,026.66 for
1910-1911.
The House Is being asked to provide in both main and supplementary votes for an expenditure of $12,-
103,597.19 as against $9,019,-
559.57 which was last year's vote.
Disproportion  Explained
In  connection  with  the apparent
disproportion in the figures between
the estimated revenue and the estimated expenditure, two significant
facts must obtain consideration.
There is always a disposition by the
present government towards safe
conservatism In Its estimates of
prospective contributions to the
treasury. Another consideration Is
that there remained on hand at the
close of last year a surplus of $2,-
224,747.18.
The actual revenue during last
year exceeded the estimates by upwards of thirteen per cent, while the
actual expenditures were $2,369,-
564.81 within the provision made
for money votes in the last session's
supply.
The Monday evening meeting of
the city council promises to be an
interesting one in view of some motions of which notice has been given
and which will come up at thai
meeting.
The one in which the greatest Interest, will centre will be that of Aid.
Clayton, who will move to have the
city purchase or stake two coal
claims In order to supply coal for
the city.
This course of Aid. Clayton is apparently taken In view of the widespread agitation just now againr.t
the excessive cost of coal on the Pacific coast.
The question of the city's powers
in such a mutter will, of course have
to be considered, even If the council
were willing to accede to the wishes
of Aid. Clayton.
Aid. Hllditch will move relative
to the duties of the city engineer
and Aid. Clayton has another motion
amending the bylaw relative to
street connections with the water
mains.

THE TRADE SITUATION
Thomas Cunningham Tells of Conditions
as Affected by Reciprocity.
He shows How the Horticultural Interests Will Be Handicapped
by Agreement
That the reciprocity treaty with
the United States, if carried Into effect will prove a staggering blow to
the fruit industry of British Columbia, is the opinion of Mr. T. Cunningham, provincial inspector of
fruit pests.
"1 have no hesitation in saying
this," he declared, "because the adjoining slates, which are lo have unrestricted access to our markets,
have a very important advantage
over British Columbia, by reason of
their possessing a much larger proportion of prairie land, which does
not need to be cleared of timber,
stumps and roots before the land is
ready to receive the trees.
"This prairie land and the adjoining states referred to, have millions of acres of it ready for the
plough. This gives the Americans
an immense advantage, which they
have not been slow to improve.
"Oregon and Washington were
settled by agriculturists and horti-
eulturists, and very wisely adopted
an agricultural policy from the beginning. You have only to look into
the legislative history of both states
to be able to realize that nearly all
their legislation has been directed to
the fostering of agricultural development.
"British Columbia, on the contrary, was settled mostly by men
engaged ,n tne mining, fishing and
lumbering industries. Although a
few of the earliest pioneers undertook fruit growing, there was very
little inducement or encouragement
held out to the fruit grower. This
is seen by the record of the votes
given for the support of the Board
of Horticulture during the first ten
years of its existence. A thousand
dollars per annum was the amount
voted for the expenses, travelling
and otherwise, of the members of
the board who were supposed to lecture on Horticulture and inspect orchards throughout the province.
No Policy
"We had no horticultural policy
worthy the name till the advent of
the McBride government. Nearly all
legislation was devoted to the min
ing, lumbering and fishing Industries, education and administration
of justice. The agricultural and
horticultural interests were sadly
neglected and starved.
"AH this can be seen by the votes
of the Legislative Assembly from
year to year. This unfortunate con
dition gave our American competi
tors twenty to thirty years the advantage in point of time, and you
know that commercial fruit growing
requires several years for the development of the orchard.
"Recently we have been making
up to some extent for lost time, but
the ill-advised, if not treacherous,
scheme evolved by men, who have
neither love nor appreciation for
British Columbia, cuts the ground
from under the feet of our fruit
growers.
Can Grow Good Fruit
"Now please do not misunderstand me. I do nol admit for one
moment that we cannot grow as
good or better fruit in British Columbia as can be grown anywhere
in Ihe wide world. We are doing it
now in limited quantities but the
initial expense in preparation of the
land for the orchard is greatly in
excess   of   that   of   our   competitors.
"Another fact that has retarded
horticultural development in this
province was the dread of what lias
Just happened, The government
now unfortunately In power at Ottawa preached a. policy of free
trade, as they bave it in England,
when I hey were in the opposition.
Intelligent; -fruit growers, fanners,
as well as manufacturers In many
lines, have always had such mlsgiv
Ings re the adoption of a free trade
polity. The fear has acted as a
leterrent.
"It was expected that as soon as
the present, government obtained
ont.ro! the free trade policy of Sir
Wilfrid l.auiier would prevail, This
dread prevented tho Investment of
the necessary capital in reproductive
industries. We lost valuable time
which   ran   never  be  recovered.
"The American government, on
the contrary have since the close of
the rebellion, which was brought on
by the free traders in the United
States, adhered to a policy of protection .and this loyalty to a principle has within fifty years built up
a patriotic and homogeneous nation
foremost   in  invention,   manufacture
and  intelligent agriculture.
"The same cause has produced the
same effect in protected Germany,
which is rapidly gaining on England,
and has already surpassed her in
many lines of manufacture and in
agriculture. There are eighteen millions of the German population engaged in the cultivation of the soil.
Germany has not only advanced
steadily on all these lines, but is preparing to challenge the naval supremacy of Great Britain.
Free Trade
"At the time England adopted
the free trade policy over 60 per
cent of the people were engaged In
agriculture and living on the land,
producing a healthy, virile race of
men, who bade fair to conquer the
world. These were the men with
whom Wellington and Nelson destroyed the power of Napoleon and
won the Empire of India and Africa.
The last census shows that instead
of 60 per cent of the inhabitants ot
the United Kingdom being engaged
in cultivating the soil, the rural pop-'
illation lias dwindled to five millions, as against Germany's eighteen
millions, and are now hived in towns
and cities, living and reproducing
under most unfavorable conditions.
There are today three millions of
people in the United Kingdom living in a condition of semi-starvation. There is an army of one and
three-quarter millions of paupers
who never enjoy the comfort of a
square meal.
"Agriculture once the glory ot
Britain, and in which she excelled
all other countries, is now in ruin.
Pride of race and patriotism, most
important factors in the creation ot
a great people are gradually declining, as is shown -by the conditions
prevailing in the Imperial Parliament today. All this is the price
that has been paid for free trade.
A free trader, cannot, in the very
nature of things, be a real patriot,
all that my good friend, Mr. Joseph
Martin, Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
Messrs. Fielding and Paterson may
preach to the contrary, notwithstanding.
"Canada  is threatened  today    as
never before, because the population
and invested capital are much largei
than at any time in our history.
Were  Doing Well
"We were getting on admirably,
especially in this province. Had
this reciprocity scheme not been precipitated, in ten years hence wo
should not have feared any competition in fruit growing.
"We have over a million acres ot
excellent fruit land in British Columbia and a market at our door,
but it requires time for developing
orchards. Fruit trees do not, lika
other products of the soil, mature in
a year.
"With all these facts in view, the
magnitude of the blunder into
which our rulers have been betrayed
can hardly be estimated.
"Again any person not blinded by
political prejudice can see that Vancouver must lose Immensely if this
reciprocity scheme be consummated.
We had excellent prospects of becoming the Pacific port for the export of Alberta and Saskatchewan
wheat. As soon as the Pauama
Canal is completed, freights are
sure to be reduced -fifty per cent
on present rates and there were
grand possibilities for the transcontinental railway lines now heading
for the coast. All this is to bo
swept away, for our future railway
systems are sure to run north and
south, instead of east and west, and
carry our coal and wheat lo Puget
Sound instead of Vancouver.
American  Shrewdness
"Our American neighbors need
our raw material, and our incomparable wheat. They have exhausten
their own soil for profitable wheat
production. They will mill oui
.Manitoba 'hard' and export the finished product to feed John Bull and
his people.
"No nation in the history of the
world ever became rich and prosperous by exporting its raw material, so that no matter how one re-
cards this contemplated action of
the Canadian government it. certainly Is the most stupendous blunder
In the history of Canada, especially
for our own  British  Columbia.
"All parties interested in the fu-
lure of this province should unite in
opposing the scheme, which is sure
to bring on a crisis, for which we
shall suffer."

FORESTRY POLICY
A. C. Flummerfelt Gives the' View Upon
the Question of Conservation
of Supply.
Lessons Learned by the Commission
That Went into the Subject
on Behalf of Province
In the course of a paper prepared
for the Forestry Convention, A. C.
Flumerfelt, one of the commissioners who went into the subject in
British Columbia, submitted some
lessons learned while so employed.
He said in part:
I should be afraid to venture an
opinion concerning the number of
books, pamphlets and reports on
forest subjects that we received and
digested. There was valuable material here and there; but on the
whole we read the voluminous literature of the beginnings of forestry
upon the continent of America with
a feeling akin to disappointment.
We were depressed by the smallness
of the work that had been accomplished and by the greatness of what
ought to have been done, -by the absence of experiment and investigation, and by the meagre amount of
information concerning forest resources. There seemed to be so
much academic discussion, so much
good sentiment about conservation
—and so little practical support given to aggressive work, so little expenditure of hard cash. It was
like the Scotchman's breakfast in
the fishing story—a bottle and a
half of the best alcohol with half a
penny bun! We grew accustomed to
state boards of forestry that were
all title aud annual report and no
treasury.
The upshot of the matter was that]
we became convinced that conservation in British Columbia ought to
he a very different and a very business-like affair. (Thai is what conservation means, at bottom—the application of ordinary business principles to natural resources.) It must
be action and not mere talk, immediate action and expenditure of large
sums of money. Hence our recommendation to the government that:
"Large appropriations must be
made and a well-manned, specialized
forest service brought into being,
thoroughly equipped."
In this matter of conservation,
gentlemen, the province occupies a
position that, looking at the history
and the sad experience of other forest countries, may be described as
unique. Fire has ravaged certain
districts; man has wasted timber
freely, but British Columbia can undertake the protection of the forests
before and not after fire and waste
have squandered  the  bulk of them.
We came to the broad conclusion
that upon two conditions natural reafforestation would take place in
British Columbia.
"Firstly," we    said,    "both    the
young growth and the old must be
protected from fire; secondly, there
must be exercised a firm control
over the methods under which the
present forest crop is being removed. In short, effective discouragement of waste. And," we continued, "by protection from fire we
do not mean the mere temporary
employment here and there of men
to fight conflagrations that have
been allowed to spread. We have in
mind the active prevention of fire
by the systematic work of a well-
knit organization such as that described in our report. This work
would include, as a matter of urgency, the task of evolving for each locality a sound method of dealing
with the reckless style of lumbering
that leaves in every cut-over area a
fire-trap of debris. That the young
timber upon which our whole future
as a lumber producing country depends, should be left at the pleasure
of any thoughtless workman, to
grow up under the imminent menace
of fire is so absurd commercially
that an attempt at regulation is imperative."
A vexed question—this is of the
disposal of debris; but one for experiment and not for discussion. The
expenditure of a little public money
on experiments will soon decide
whether or not it will be commercially feasible in British Columbia
as it has been in other forest regions
to put an end to the liberty of careless workmen "to leave debris in
any manner that may suit their
own convenience without the least
regard for the safety of the cut-over
area or of the adjoining forests."
As for logging regulations, we felt
that the time was opportune for the
restriction of waste. The levying of
royalty upon all waste should prove
an effectual remedy.
Taking a comprehensive view of
the whole subject we felt that this
great timber business of the Government of British Columbia should be
placed upon the soundest financial
footing. Hence our recommendation
that its capital should be kept intact
—that it should not he dissipated by
treating it as current revenue. Roy-
allies, we felt, were true forest capital, and we urged most strongly that
they should be returned to the
source from which they were produced, in the form of protection for
the growing crop. "No special circumstances," we continued, "that
would justify departure from ordinary business principles have yet been
proved lo exist. General natural reafforestation, though probable, is
not an established fact in the province, and our uncertainty regarding
it, will not be removed until definite
information has been obtained. We
consider it essential that no surplus
of royalty capital should pass Into
general revenue." We recommend
the establishment of a forest singing fund.
The rest of our conclusions, gentlemen, you will find in our official
report. In many a practical matter
of forest protection, as I have al
ready said, our young province has
much to learn from older communities, though it is learning fast. But
in the matter of forest policy we
have no doubts and no humility. We
challenge the governments of the
continent to produce a method of administering a tremendous forest estate that in breadth of statesmanship is comparable with the policy
conceived and elaborated by the
Honorable Richard McBride and his
government. To have put a stop to
alienation of the public forests, and
yet, without alienation to have
raised the annual forest revenue to
two and a half million dollars is an
extraordinary achievement. Further
than this, so well thought out lias
been this provincial policy, that
without the least danger to the public interest the provincial government was able, only last year, to
give Increased stability to the lumbering industry by granting a perpetual title to those who had made
investments in nine million acres of
licensed timber lands. It was possible, at one and the same stroke,
to make this concession to the lumberman and to advance the public
interest by it, for the direct effect
of security of tenure was to enlist
the hearty co-operation of investors
In the conservation of tlie timber
they owned jointly with the government.
The provincial policy Is based upon masterly principles:
1. No alienation of the people's
forests.
2. Absolute reservation of a fair
share of the "unearned increment"
on Crown timber.
3. Partnership between the government and the lumbermen in the
profits of the lumbering industry.
4. The judicious holding In reserve of forest areas that can be
thrown into the market should any
stumpage-holding monopoly threaten the province.
Let me ask you whether you
lliink well of a government that in
three short years has changed lis
annual expenditure In the war
against forest fires from sixteen
thousand to one hundred and eighty-
five thousand dollars? Is there not
a touch of the magnificent In this
swift recognition of a duty?
And now, let me enlist your interest in the progress of conservation
In the part of Canada from which I
come. The protection and the wise
control of the cutting of the two
hundred and forty billion feet of
timber in British Columbian forests
is of vital Importance to the entire
west—for this timber builds the
prairie farms. Nay, further, the conservation of half the merchantable
limber of Canada is a matter that
affects al!  of you
Canada will not become the great
wheat-producing country that we
hope to see her, the growth of the
farming population of millions In
the vast region of the timberless
prairies will be hampered and discouraged unless lumber Is obtainable
freely and cheaply for the building
of the homes. Over-cutting in the
United States will at no distant
date exhaust that source of cheap
supply; the east of Canada will need
its lumber for itself. The proximity
of coal was the vital factor that
built up the iron industry, that back-
oone of Great Britain's commercial
supremacy. The proximity of timber—British Columbia's timber—
will be the vital factor that shall enable the granary of Canada to produce its wheat. The cheap lumber
that will build the farms will be the
British Columbian.
This makes our provincial forest
policy one of the national questions
of Canada.
PLAGUE  EPIDEMIC
Gruesome particulars of the ravages of plague in northern Manchuria are given by the Japanese newspapers received by the Inaba Maru.
Correspondents pain tawful pictures
of corpses half-devoured by pariah
dogs being thrown pell-mell into the
Amur river in and ahout Harbin,
where fifty new cases were being
reported daily up to January 18 and
during the few days prior the daily
death toll was 120 lives. These
plague-infected Jbodiies will poison
the great waterway anu carry germs
everywhere along its banks to the
sea. The centres of Manchuria,
both mud-walled vil'ages and great
castled cities where thousands are
massed, were nearly all scenes of
epidemics and in some the Chinese
were not carrying out protective
measures, while In Mukden, Harbin,
Dalny and other places quarantine
was formed, big barracks being set
aside to house suspects Railway
traffic was practically suspended,
only first-class passengers being
permitted to travel, and the roads
were crowded with coolies, it being
the season when the laborers return
from Manchuria lo Shantung and
other provinces. Peking was panic-
stricken, and there was a great exodus of foreigners. The viceroys of
Perhill and Manchuria arranged for
a number of foreign doctors, and Hr.
Meny, a French physician, who went
to Harbin with thirty Chinese medical students succumbed two days
after arrival as well as fifteen of
the students. Japanese are active
throughout southern Manchuria
and each day sees processions of suspects from many places being taken
from the cities where Chinese are
in hiding and the streets are often
deserted. Japanese' doctors claim
the disease was brought from Russia over the Trans-Siberian railroad
and fear that north China coast cities will be ravaged. Dalny is the
only sea port against which quarantine has been declared to date. The
bean trade Is suffering greatly as a
result of the epidemic. German
doctors at Peking have petitioned
against the German Crown Prince
maklnug his proposed visit there In
April. Friday, February 10, 1911
PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
| Deep Sea Denizens I
*  Frank Bulla Gives Interesting Address Djon *
•;■ Life Among Fishes. ,;.
'?......, *
Highly amusing and absorbing interest was an address by Mr. Frank
Bullen under the auspices of the
Royal Geographical Society on "Deep
Sea People at Home," at the Imperial Institute.
By "deep sea people" he explained,
he did not mean seamen. "No man,"
he added, "is ever at home upon the
sea, and sometimes it does not forget
to let us know that we are aliens."
Describing the jelly fish as being
the lowest form of life, .Mr. Bullen
said il multiplied by dividing itself,
and fed fish far higher in the scale
of life than ilself. Yet, exposed to
the sun, it melted away in a few mini
utes. There were, he said a little
later, no vegetarians at sea—fish
lived to eat and to be eaten. It was
an ideal state, where there was no
need for old age pensions.
Jelly fishes were practically at the
basis of all life. Mr. Bullen caused
a ripple of laughter by his references
to the cuttle fihs as the fish with
only one meal ad ay, but that lasting
twenty-four hours. These creatures,
ranging in length from a few Inches
to 70 feet, provided fooa for practically all the rest of the fishes in the
sea except one.
People might write about the
ante-diluvian monsters, but they
were, to use a colloquialism, "not In
it" compared with the sperm whale,
which weighed as much as 250 tons.
Then there was another whale which j
could easily swallow aalf a dozen recalcitrant Jonahs at once. From tne
head of one of these monsters in the
Behring Sea enough whalebone
(1% tons) had been taken to pay
the whole cost of the voyage. Yet
this monster was helpless, and only
had to be chased long enough for it
to die like an old man who had run
to catch a train after a heavy meal.
Some whales, although huge in size,
had very small "swallows," and
lived by sucking tiny creatures into
their mouths—four million of these
went to make not a mouthful, but
one satisfying swallow. The codfish multiplied so rapidly in two
years that if no toll was taken of
them in two years the Man retail ia
would be unable to cross the Atlantic
for them.
The shark was one of the most
slandered of creatures, and yet it
was one of the most amiable of living things. It was created to be a
scavenger of the sea. Its business
was to clear up the mess, and if a
man happed to constitute the mess,
it ate him. He had known a shark
to eat cinders, not because he liked
them, but simply because they happen to be there. The pilot fish,
which was credited with guiding the
shark to its food, had such an affection for its master, that when a
shark was dragegd on board it would
jump up after it, and only when the
ship outpaced it did it leave the side
of the vessel. The shark must have
some amiable qualities to so attract
the pilot fish.
The question, "How to live without doing anything," had been solved
by a small fish which found an ideal
home in the mouth of the whale,
where some portion of the food swallowed by the monster found Its way
into its own mouth. Referring to the
great age to which turtles live, the
lecturer said rumors had come to his
ears of one which, when turned over
in the West Indies, was found to
have inscribed upon it, "The Ark,
Captain Noah." Turtles lived, apparently as long as they liked, and
eventually died of disgust.

THE  SKEENA  GRANTS
The news that $225,000 has been
appropriated b> the Provincial Government for expenditure in this district is indeed gratifying to all who
live in Prince Ruperl. It means that
the government has decided upon
an aggressive policy in this part of
the country which will do much to
throw It open to the settler. The
government is going to see that as
the Grand Trunk Pacific is constructed there are proper facilities
provided to enable the land seekers
to enter upon the land and make
homes for themselves. In addition
to this appropriation which will go
largely to building trails there is
provision for $60,000 more for
bridges, so that about a third of a
million dollars will be expended in
development in Skeena District the
coming year.
The grant reflects credit upon
the representative of the district,
Mr. Manson. It is an assurance
that he is doing his duty as the
member for the riding and should
quiet all the petty critics who are
more anxious to belittle a political
opponent than to advance the interests of the city and district.
Mr. Manson will doubtless bring
upon himself the adverse criticism
of the reprsentatives of some of the
other districts in the province. It
is well known that some of these
ridings make very strong claims for
appropriations. Mr. Manson has been
able to bring the claims of the
Skeena so strongly before the government that it is placed among the
most important in the province in
the eyes of the excutive as far as the
needs  of  development   is  concerned.
Without ostentation, .Mr. Manson
has accomplished his ends. He has
been persistent in his demands and
with a government ready to assist
what is felt to be one of the richest
areas in the province, a very substantial grant has been made.
The proportionate increase over
last 'year's vote for the Skeena is far
in excess of the proportionate increase made throughout the whole
of the province. While the general
grants for the province are only
about 13 per cent increase over last
year, Skeena comes out with over
50 per cent.
Every dollar of the money will be
required in the work that Is to be
done. More could with advantage
be expended, doubtless, but the
government must be limited by the
estimated revenues and must exercise due care.
BAPTIST   BROTHERHOOD
Address  Promised  by  Rev.  Dr.  McLeod Upon Prison Reform and
Kindred Questions
Every Monday evening a band of
young men meet for mutual benefit
at the Baptist Brotherhood which
has clearly proved its worth among
the young men of the city. Those
who know that public speaking is
not a born trail but one of hard
practice, welcome the Brotherhood
means of helding a young fellow to
master the art of being able to present his views completely on a subject. Any man is welcome to these
meetings.
Next Monday evening Rev. McLeod has promised a treat In the
Shape Of an address on "The Delinquents of Society," a (realise on
prison reform, classification of
criminals, causes of crime and such
other phases of misdemeanor that
lie far above the average mind's
grasp. Rev, McLeod has pul much
time and energy Into this branch
of sociological investigation while
connected with the University of
Chicago and Is thoroughly. competent to thrill every hearer with common mishaps thai are unnoticed by
very many. Rev. McLeod proved his
powers as an essaylsl by giving recently a impel- on the Age of the
Reformation and this otner subject
Is eagerly looked forward to. At
the close of the address a discussion
will be held on the subject to which
Strangers are especially invited to
contribute.
On the following Monday evening
a joint debate will be held with the
Presbyterian Club on an Intricate
subject: Resolved, that a lawyer
is Justified in defending a criminal
whom he knows to be guilty."    Tne
attractiveness of the subject needs
no comment, in response to a request this meeting will be for ladies
as well as man. For the following
week an interesting social is being
arranged—particulars later—this is
merely a reminder to keep that date
c osed.
 o	
ROAD TO DAIRY
Request   Made  by  Owners—Council
Defers   Action   in   tile
Matter
Tlie city council has been requested by the local dairy to provide a
roadway to the place. At the last
meeting tlie subject was discussed
when it was pointed out that the
dairy was on the G. T. P. reserve
and the city had no power In the
matter.
Aid, Xewlon thought that as it
would be .necessary to have the dairy
kept clean, means should be provided to haul the refuse away from
the barn.
It was suggested that perhaps
the owners could be supplied with
planks that had been used al a reduced price the same way as had
been done on a street elsewhere in
the city.
The matter was allowed to stand
over.
 o	
HEAVY SNOW FALL
Railway   Officials    Found  G.  T.  P.
Blocked Where Slides Were Not
Expected  Last  Pall
General Superintendent Meehan
and Superintendent McNicholl returned last evening after nearly a
week's absence along the line of the
railway. In common with the whole
of the country this year the G. T. P.
line has experienced a very heavy
fall of snow. Owing to the fact that
all the snow sheds were not completed last year, the company has
had its line in these parts buried
deeply in snow. The rotary plow
which the officials had attached to
their train was damaged and will
have to be overhauled.
Mr. Meehan says that if the snow
sheds planned had been completed
last fall there would have been no
difficulty in keeping the road open
all winter. The fall of snow has
been moree xcessive than old residents ever saw before, but this has
served tiie company well in showing
just what precautions will have to
he taken a future to provide against
trouble from this source.

At this week's meeting of the
council, Aid. Kirkpatrick brought up
the question of outstanding account
of the Empire with respect to incorporation. It was pointed out that
out of a bill of about $257 the finance committee of last year had allowed $198 and refused the remainder.
Aid. Hilditch asked Aid. Pattullo
for reasons why the sum was cut
down.
Aid. Pattullo said they were
thought to be excessive. He preferred not to go Into this now, as
the matter was before the courts.
He did not want to prejudice the
case.
It was proposed to refer this to
the finance committee.
The suggestion was made that the
motion might be made with power
to act in view of the fact that the
matter was before the courts and
liable to come up in a few days.
Aid. Pattullo was opposed to this.
It had been passed upon last year
and a decision reached to cut Iho
bill down for the reasons he gave.
Aid. Hilditch felt It was a moral
obligation, It was more a moral
debt than a legal one. lie felt the
Empire could not get a judgment
on this c'alni as the city was not,
obliged to pay It.
Aid, Pattullo said a threat was
made that If the account was not
paid by 4 o'clock on a certain day
the Empire would Issue a writ. The
committee of last year had had no
chance to bring it before the cotin-
cil. The prices were altogether too
high,
Aid. Clayton could not see why
it should be referred to the finance
committee to act. The prices, he
said, in connection with it were Air.
Newton's regular rates. If the
committee was satisfied, lie thought
It might be settled by them.
The motion to refer it to the
committee, sitting with Aid. Smith,
and   without  Aid.   Newton,   carried.

LAWYER'S  BILL
Question of W. 3. Taylor's Charges
in Connection wilit the
Charter
Tuesday evening a letter was read
from Mayor Manson with reference
to the settlement of the bill of $2,-
000, which W. J. Taylor, K. O, of
Victoria, has against the city for
services in connection with the charter of the city.
Mayor Manson wrote that he had
taken up with W. J. Taylor, K. C,
the matter of his account against the
city and Mr. Taylor had agreed t
accept $1,000 in full for his services if paid at once.
The acting mayor suggested that
If the council intended to sellle for
this amount It might be well to act
promptly without referring it to the
finance committee,
Aid. Pattullo said that If Mr. Taylor was not prepared to accept this
$1,000 he was prepared to let him
fight it. The city was not obliged
lo pay this. The $2,000 seemed to
him an exorbitant bill. He was not
satisfied that $1,000 was not too
much. He thought it should go to
the finance committee.
Aid. Clayton did not know how II
stood. Mr. Taylor might be able to
colled this $2,000. if the city could
cut it down to $1,000 it might be
good policy. He did not pretend to
know all the details of the case.
The matter was referred to the
finance committee.

HOUSTON MEMORIAL
NELSON—That he John Houston
memorial shall take the form of a
drinking fountain, or, if sufficient
money is subscribed, a public library
building, was the decision arrived
at, after much discussion at a meeting of subscribers which was called
for the purpose of electing officers
and formulating plans for carrying
on the work in a more organized
form than has up to the present
time been the case.
In all 192 subscription lists have
been sent out and the result has
been that a considerable sum has
been raised though even the approxl.
mate amount of the total fund is not
yet known as the lists have not yet
been called In, it being decided last
night that the fund should -close
on March 31 next.
The first business of the meeting
was to elect officers, who were
chosen as follows: President, John
M. Malone; secretary S. M. Brydges;
treasurer, J. M. Lay; executive committee, E. V. Rudd, F. A. Starkey,
William Irvine, Alexander MacDon-
ald, W. F. Teetzel, Thomas Sar-
geant, William Shakelton, Franlk
Phillips and J. W. Holmes, sr.
The discussion as to the form the
memorial should take showed that
all present were in favor of erecting
-a drinking fountain at which men,
women and children could quench
their thirst on hot summer days
while it was proposed that troughs
should be built for horses and smaller troughs for dogs.
A committee consisting of F. A.
Starkey, J. A. Irving and William
Shakelton was chosen to interview
Government Agent Teetzel and the
city council regarding this matter
and to also obtain estimates as to
the probable cost of a drinking
fountain and of the erection of a
public horary building. The latter
project was suggested as a fitting
memorial to the late Mr. Houston if
the subscriptions given should make
such an  undertaking possible.
The secretary was instructed to
write to all the local members of
the legislature at the coast and endeavor to interest them in the memorial fund and also to write to
other persons in various parts of
Canada and the United States whom
he may think likely to subscribe.
GOLD BRICK
NELSON—Mr. A. W. Constans,
manager of the Athabasca Mine, arrived with a goia brick valued at
over $10,000. The scales at the
bank were not of sufficient size to
weigh the gold and the brick had
to be taken to a jewellery store, The
brick Is one month's run of the mill
and Is from ore from a new strike.
It is the largest brick brought to
Nelson in the last decade. Mr. A. E.
Rand of Vancouver and Nelson and
Spokane associates control the mine.
ESQUIMALT DRYDOCK
VICTORIA—Work will be started
at once on the constructon of a
large drydock at Esquimau, suitable
to the requirements of the Canadian
warships to be built for the Pacific
Ocean. Messrs. W. F. Bullen and
II. F. Bullen, of the British Columbia .Marine Railway Company of
Esquimau, who have been In Ottawa
in connection with the application
for the Dominion subsidy for the
construction of a drydock and .to interview the government with regard
to the proposed construction of warships for the Canadian navy, has returned and announced that the work
would begin at once. Regarding
naval construction here, Mesrs. Bullen made no announcement beyond
stating that it was the fixed policy
of the government to have the vessels for the new Canadian navy built
in Canada and that the shipyards
of this coast would be given an opportunity of building the Pacific
fleet. Two fast cruisers of the Bristol type and three destroyers of the
River class are to be built and probably other construction will follow.

INCREASE IN PAY
Telephone Girls Will   Receive Salaries
of $60.00 a Month in
Future.
Cio
Council   Decides    to    Give
vunced  Rate—Living Ex-
peiifes Discussed
Ad.
Tin girls employed In the city
tel hoar office will have an Increase in l-ay. This has been decided by the council. The increase
will be from ?50 to S00 a month,
while for two months at the start,
while on probation, the pay will be
only $40 a month. The action was
taken by the council in view of the
fad that $50 seemed too low a salary for a girl to Ive on here. It was
explained ihat the work was trying.
The girls worked seven hours a day
each in two shifts of four and three
hours.
AItl. Hilditch did not object to
raising the wages of these girls to
$60. He viewed the whole question
of labor from the same standpoint.
Men, as well as girls, should be
paid wages that would allow them
to live comfortably.
Aid. Kerr said the girls worked
seven hours only at present, but
were on duty longer.
Aid. Clayton said a girl could not
live as cheaply as a man. A man
could rough  it to some extent.
Aid. Hllditch thought a man deserved to live as comfortably as a
girl. He did not object, to the girls
getting a fair wage. He felt that
men working on tlie street should
get as much as a girl.
Aid. Pattullo felt that girls should
receive salaries that would allow
them to live well and comfortably.
Aid. Kerr said that tne principal
objection to this was that if the
tolephones were to De reduced in
prices it would not be by adding to
the wages. It cost $1 a month per
phone.
Aid. .Morrissey did not think that
$60 was any too much. He rather
thought, the $40 for those on probation was too low.
It was explained that this probation extended only over two months.
The report in favor of the increased pay carried.
 o	
POPULATION OF CALGARY
Estimate    of    Directory    Publishers
Places Number of Inhabitants
at  53,380
Calgary's population is 55,330,
according to the estimate of the directory publishers. This means on
increase of over nine thousand in
the past. year. One fact in the
growth of Calgary is revealed in this
year's directory, and that is that this
city shows a greater proportion of
growth in English-speaking people
than almost any other ctiy in the
west. The slight foreign-speaking
increase is shown in the nortli and
east of the city.
BORDEN IS OPPOSED
(Continued From Page One.)
the postponement of the consideration of the agreement.
In reply Hon. W. S. Fielding said
there would be no unseemly rush in
putting tlie agreement through.
Ample opportunity would be given
for tlie fullest discussion of the bill
in its various stages.
The amendment was defeated and
the House went Into committee on
It.
R. L. Borden, leader of the Opposition, declared that after careful
consideration he was opposed to the
bargain   which   had  been  made.
APPOINT A STAFF
(Continued From Page One.)
In reply to question, Aid. Smith
explained that up to the end of December the total cost of the plant,
site, etc., was $28,000.
It was explained that the cost of
the plant for the 100-kilowatt plant,
would be about $36,000. For the
200-kllowatt additional plant, the
cost would be brought up to $66,-
000 altogether.
The John Houston memorial fund
under which it is proposed to perpetuate the name of the pioneer
newspaper man of this city in connection with the General hospital,
now reaches the sum of $581.
