TOUR OF MINISTER
Hon. Thos. Taylor Paid  Visit to  the
Queen Charlotte
Islands.
He   Wns   Accompanied   by   William
Manson, Representing the District, iiikI Oiricinls
Hon. Thomas Taylor returned to
the city on Sunday evening by the
steamer Henriette, after a tour of
the Queen Charlotte Islands In company with the member for this great
northern district of the province, W.
Manson. The lc?cnl member seems to
have won the hearty sympathy of
the minister of public works, who is
giving the closest attention to the
needs of the north, making frequent
triiis here to go into the requirements
of the country. Mr. Taylor is an extremely practical minister. He has
established a reputation at Victoria
for keeping well in touch with the
needs of the scattered parts of the
province and is able now to tell quite
correctly just what the requirements
are. In this way his office has become a very valuable accessory to the
government and in consequence of
his exact information the money will
be all the more judiciously expended.
On the present trip the representatives of the people were accompanied
by the road superintendent of the
district, Mr. Jennings, and Mr. Gil-
Hngham of this city, who is to take
charge of the work under Mr. Taylor's department on the Queen Charlotte Islands. The work in this district is multiplying at such a rate
that it has been found necessary to
divide it to a considerable extent so
that It may be the more expeditiously
done and a better supervision kept
over It than Is possible under the
former system.
The government Is alive to the
pressing needs of this portion of the
province and Is prepared to back up
Mr. Manson's recommendations
wherever It is possible to do so with
the  funds  aavilable.
On the present trip the party
landed at Masset. After an inspection
of that portion of the island they
started out on foot over the trail in
the direction of Skidegate and Queen
Charlotte City. This trail Is being
widened oy the government and
otherwise put In better shape for
the public. The Intention is to eventually transform It Into a wagon road
between the points mentioned so that
the freest communication by land
may be established. At the present
time the minister says it will only be
widened and improved.
The party walked the first 14 miles
uf the route as far as Tel-el River.
At that point they took to horse back
and proceeded the remaining distance of about 30 miles in that way.
This mode of locomotion is not a
new one to Mr. Taylor, who has come
to be called them inister on horseback owing to his habit of reaching
the more inaccessible portions of the
province by that primitive method of
travel.
At Queen Charlotte City a public
meeting was held when the residents
of the outlying sections, Including
Skldegate, Lawn Point, and other
portions of the Island, were present
to here the questions of the day discussed and to present their views
before the member for the district
and the minister of the crown.
From here the party proceeded to
the southern part of the Islands,
calling at all the points and looking
Into the needs of the different settlements. In as far as there was time
to do so, the outlying mining camps
near the dirferent centres were visited and the best means of meeting the
needs of these studied. Wherever It
Is possible to do so, facilities will be
provided to meet the immediate demands of these camps.
Mr. Taylor was very much Impressed with the Islands. Interviewed on the prospects there, he said
that he thought that there would be
lminenBe opportunities for stock raising at different points on the Queen
Charlottes. He had seen some of the
stock at Masset and he said he never
say cattle In better condition. He
was informed that these cattle ran
out all winter and were fat In the
spring. They certainly showed signs
that that was the condition. He believed that all over the Islands there
would be magnificent opportunities
for grazing.
The fishing Industry was sure to
be a most valuable asset to the Island. It would In all probability be
the greatest Industry that would exist
there. At Pacofl where there was a
plant capable of handling 55 tons a
day, a new company representing
Vancouver capital had just taken
over the business and were pushing
it forward. The development of this
part of the province was, in the opinion of Mr. Taylor, something of the
greatest importance to Prince Rupert as it would all be tributary to
this centre.
There was the most, hopeful feeling all over the Islands with respect
to the mining resources and the indications were certainly very bright
in many cases. Altogether he had
little doubt but that the Queen Charlottes would soon become one of the
richest producers in the province.

Mrs. Musgrave, of Victoria, spent
several days here this week visiting
her husband, Capt. Musgrave, of the
hydrographlc steamer Lillooet.
Duncan Ross has arrived from the
south after a short visit. He will
proceed In a day or two to Hazelton
and remain in charge of his section
: the G. T. P. until the Skeena River
oezes up.
The business men of the city have
indicated that they are thoroughly
aroused over the question of the disagreement between the G. T. P. and
the city on the question of the assessment of the railway reserve property. Feeling that it. was necessary
to take prompt action a meeting was
held on Saturday in the office of P. I.
Palmer when the subject was discussed at length and a decision
reached that it would be well to have
a meeting with the city council and
consider the whole subject. Communication with the mayor showed
that he was quite agreeable to the
proposal to get together and discuss
the subject and as a result a gathering was held in the city hall on
Saturday afternoon when nearly all
the members of the council were
present and about fifty prominent
business men also assembled.
There was an entire absence of ill
feeling, all meeting with the apparent desire of devising some way of
overcoming the difficulty and advancing the best interests of the city.
Mr. Law explained the object of
the gathering and suggested that
Thomas Dunn act as the spokesman
for the citizens. The latter at once
proceeded to the point. He made it
quite clear that he considered that
it was essential in the best interests
of Prince Rupert that the city should
meet some official of the G. T. P. and
endeavor to bring about a settlement
of the difficulty. It was something
that affected the business life of the
city very materially and he thought
an amicable agreement could likely
be reached.
Edmonton's Example
It was pointed out that other cities
gave exemptions from taxation to
the G. T. P, to have connection with
it and the case of Edmonton was
cited in this connection. A very free
discussion followed In which the various aspects of the case were
brought forth.
Aid. Mclntyre said Edmonton offered a very different case to this
city. Edmonton was afraid that the
G. T. P. would not come there. It
paid $175,000 to secure it, giving
exemption of property and buying a
right of way at a cost of about $500,-
000.
Mr. Dunn said that Vancouver was
not In so much different a position
from Prince Rupert, yet it gave the
C, P. R. a very large area in the
heart of the city and gave a right of
way there.
Aid. Pattullo contended that the
cj. T. P. had got very liberal treatment here.
Mr.  Dunn's Solution
Mr. Dunn said to bring the matter
to a head he favored sending word
to Vancouver and endeavoring to get
D'Arcy Tate the solicitor of the G. T.
P. here and open negotiations looking to a settlement.
Aid. Lynch said he did not look
upon this as a charity proposition. It
was a business transaction. Edmonton In its move was getting the railway from some other place. Vancouver in securing the C.P.R. got It
away from Port Moody. If the G. T.
P. were a railway not located here
and It was felt that something should
be done to bring it in, the situation
would be different. It might then
be worth while to give $1,000,000 to
secure it.
Mr. Dunn pointed out that the citizens believed the assessment on the
G. T. P. property was not right. It
was too high.
Aid. Lynch contended that it was
not part of the duty of the council
to adjust this.
Mr. Dunn wanted to know whose
duty it was then.
Aid. Lynch suggested that if the
council started In on such duties
there would be no end of it to be
done in considering everybody's
claim.
Loss of Taxation
Aid. Pattullo wished to know
where the loss In taxation was to
come from if the G. T. P. was exempted as proposed. The estimates
had been prepared on the strength of
securing it.
Mr. Westenhaver could not see
why this matter should not be adjusted. He favored an amicable settlement. The assessment was abnormal, he thought. Why not get It
down to a reasonable basis by compromising on the basis that the
company spend money here at once
on its works? He did not believe In
taking advantage of a technicality.
He sugegsted that a vote be taken
as to the feeling of the meeting.
Aid. Pattullo said he did not believe the question could be voted on
intelligently.
Mr. Westenhaver did not believe It
a wise thing to plunge the city Into
litigation over this matter.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that If the
question of assessment on the railway lands be opened up the assessment on the other property of the
company be also considered. The unsold sections were assessed, he understood on the basis of wild lands at
a low rate.
Mr. Westenhaver thought this
might be adjusted all right.
M. M. Stephens said he had some
very "wild" land. It had not been
so assessed and he thought there
might be good reason for taking up
the "wild land" question.
Aid. Smith Favors
Aid. Smith who had remained
quiet up to this time, then expressed
his opinion.    He said it was not the

STARTING HOTEL
There reached the city on Sunday
a party that has In view plans that
will mean much for tlie development
■ if ibis part of the province. The
party is from Victoria nnd Includes
.1. it. Anderson, formerly deputy minister of Agriculture for the province,
F. E. Mitchell ami Mr. Carlton, both
of whom are well known in this city.
Associated with these men in the project they have in hand, is C. Hanson
& Sons, who are to take a very active
part in  the arrangements.
The principals in the affair are not
very communicative respecting their
plans. They have gone up the
Skeena river and will there examine
land in connection with the project.
The great feature of the plan in view
is the establishment of a farm on a
very extensive scale, The farm will
it is believed, be conducted under
the immediate charge of the Hanson
Bros., and will be carried out on a
most extensive scale.
Included in the plans is the planting of a large orchard and connected
with that will be a nursery where
the young trees for future planting
in the district will be cared for, and
varieties adapted to the climate will
be available. It is reported also that
there will be a great stock farm in
connection with the scheme so that
the farming operations will not be
dependent upon one branch of the industry alone.
The putting of the live stock on
the land will be proceeded with without delay, according to the plans so
that there will soon be an income
from the land. The project is not
one that will be confined to the one
organization. It will have far reaching effects upon the whole of the
country. Those directly Interested
are, it is said, planning to develop
a wide section of the rich agricultural lands of the Skeena on a comprehensive scale that will work to the
advantage of all settlers who go into
the country.
This Is the first of the moves
on a very large scale, but there Is
reason to believe that before many
months pass there will be many other
such "propositions launched and the
agricultural resources of this northern part of the province will be developed to an extent that will astonish the older parts of the country.
With a rich district within easy
reach by rail of this city, with a market to be established here that will
be one of the very best on the coast,
and with no mistakes to rectify, the
opportunities for carrying on farming operations either on a gigantic
scale or in a more modest way are
such as to attract the best in that
industry.

PLACING OF MUNICI
Monet-ry Times deals with a subject which is of special interest to rest
time—Character of Securities treated from the standpoint
dents of Prince Rupert at this
of the investors.
..;..;. »>.;«►> .;..;«•
The Monetary Times says: The Issue in London in June of £453,000
four per cents of the city of Vancouver was only partially successful.
The stock was registered instead of
to bearer, and this being somewhat
of an experiment with Canadian municipal securities overseas, there was
a disposition in some quarters to
ascribe the comparatively poor reception of the loan to that fact. A
London contemporary, for instanee,
in analyzing the result of the issue,
stated that the investing public "has
now become educated to the point
that it no longer wants a registered
stock. The wideawake investing public of the present day wants bearer
stock, for the simple and sufficient
reason that bearer stock can be passed from hand to hand. In the case
of a colonial bond, such as the Vancouver four per cents, the bearer certificate has the great additional advantage that income-tax on the unearned income derived from it need
not be paid so long as the Interest
does not come into this country. Mr.
Lloyd George himself stated in the
House of Commons, on Wednesday,
that under the Finance (199-20) Act,
1910, an individual is not required to
include in his statement of income,
for the purpose of assessment to supertax, income derived from capital
invested out of the United Kingdom,
which is not at any time received, or
brought, or remitted into the country."
Stocks Compared
Commenting upon this article, another London contemporary, Canada,
expressed considerable surprise at
the above statements. "We can not
allow such a statement to pass unchallenged," it said. "The veriest
tyro in finance must know that in
the British market registered stock
has the greatest attractions than
bearer bonds possess, and judged by
the fact that a higher price is always obtainable for a stock that is
inscribed, the public does not prefer
the latter security. Confirmation ot
this statement can be obtained by
inquiring of any leading financial
issuing house in London. The real
cause of the comparative failure of
the Vancouver loan was the fact that
the market for Canadian provincial
and municipal securities was suffering from congestion owing to the
merely moderate success attending
the flotation of the city of Winnipeg loan at 103, and the almost complete failure of the Manitoba loan
at the same price. The city of Edmonton issue was also only poorly
responded to by the public. These
contretemps, together with the
knowledge that the cities of Toronto
and Montreal are only awaiting a
favorable opportunity to appear as
borrowers, were surely sufficient explanation for the non-success of the
Vancouver issue, without attempting
to belittle the class of security offered. It is interesting to note that
the city of Chicago within the last
two months, after inviting tenders
for several million dollars at 4%
par cent bonds, failed to get a single
bid at over par. Canadian municipalities are fortunate in having the
London market behind them; the
anomaly exists all the same that the
city of Vancouver should be able to
borrow on better terms than Chicago,
one of the greatest cities in the
world."
So far as Vancouver is concerned,
the Monetary Times is inclined to
tnink the question of registered stock
or to bearer had little influence on
the reception of the loan. Market
conditions appear to have been largely responsible. On the other hand,
considerable difference of opinion exists amongst authorities as to the
merits of the two forms of securities.
The Monetary Times has obtained the
opinion of several leading London
financial houses interested in the
flotation  of  Canadian  issues.
'"Ihe question appears to us too
comprehensive for the laying down
of hard and fast principles," writes
au important firm, which interestingly summarizes the situation. "Each
form of security has several advantages and disadvantages which must
he cousidered concurrently with the
particular character of the security
to be issued, as well as with the class
of Investor to whom It is intended to
apepal. The recent increase of the
government stamp duty from % per
cent to 1 per cent on all bearer securities negotiated in this country
(Great Britain), constitutes a heavy
item of expense in connection with
the issue of bearer bonds in London
In the case of municipal offerings,
where tenders are'invited and com
petition arises between houses it
Canada    and     in   London,  it  seems
probable that this increased stamp
duty will tend to outweigh other considerations involved in the selection
of the form of security, and have the
efi'ect of causing financial houses to
make arrangements for the issue of
such loans on this side in the form of
registered stock.
Added Cost
"\\ hen a new issue of registered
stock is made, such stock is register-
able into the first subscribers' names
free of stamp duty. All subsequent
transactions in the security, are however, subject to an 'ad valorem'
stamp duty of % per cent, payable
by the purchaser, and in addition, a
fee f 2s 6d per deed of transfer is
usually charged by the registrars.
"As a dealer in buying stock always runs the risk of not being able
to sell It Immediately, and would,
therefore, have to take it up into his
own name or into that of his banker,
paying thereon the above-mentioned
% per cent stamp duty and fees, the
result is that in registered stock it
Is, generally speaking, impossible to
have as free a market, or obtain as
close a price when dealing, as In
bearer securities.
"A point in favor of registered
stocks is that they can usually be
bought in multiples of £1, and are,
therefore, more convenient for the
small investor, who can thus purchase amounts that will absorb the
exact sum at his disposal. Many of
these small investors do not care for
the responsibility of holding bearer
securities when they can have a certificate In their own names which is
only transferable on a separate deed
of transfer signed by them. Moreover, they prefer to have their dividends mailed direct to their registered address, instead of having to detach coupons, and have them presented at a bank for payment.
Prefer Bearer Securities
"On the other hand, the higher
grade of securities are very largely
held by Insurance companies, and
financial and public institutions, who
would undoubtedly prefer to hold a
bearer security that could be readily
used for purposes of collateral,-and
which would have the more active
market that bearer securities usually
promote. To cater for the small investor when It Is decided to issue
bearer bonds, some part of the issues
is occasionally made in bonds of as
small a denomination as £20, while
in France it is almost the Invariable
custom to have all bonds In denominations of 500 francs.
"The foregoing are, in our opinion,
the most important points for and
against each form of security that
have to be considered; but if we were
to attempt to sum up the position in
a general way we should say that
where the standing of the issuing authority, municipal or otherwise, .»
high, and is sufficiently known to investors in this country (Great Britain), to justify expectations of a
broad market in its securities, then
there is very little to choose between
the two forms of security, the balance of favor perhaps being slightly
with registered stocks. In cases
where the borrowing corporation is
not well-known over here, we should
be Inclined to recommend bearer
bonds."
Another house states that the
great finance houses, Insurance companies, and the continental market,
demand bonds, but the general English investor will not have bonds at
any price. Consequently, when the
demand for securities is a special
one, caused by a plethora of money
in the financial centres, bonds are
in demand, but when the demand for
securities is a general one, registered
stock Is required. The same firm
think that the failure of the city of
Vancouver loan was simply due to
the fact, that It was offered at too
high a price, the securities of the
greatest cities In the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South
Africa, and the United States, Including New York, being obtainable to
yield a higher rate of Interest.
To Become Popular
From a prominent London house
which has Interested considerable
capital in Canada, comes the opinion
that registered stock Is likely to be
more popular than bearer securities,
if the price is favorable, and It Is
made free of stamp duty by the Issuing authorities. "It Is preferred to
hearer securities for the reason that
there is not the same danger of loss,
and the Interest is remitted regularly
to the registered holder, who Is not
obliged to cut off coupons and pay
them Into a hank for collection. The
issue of registered stock is perhaps
a little more expensive to the municipality  If  the  stamp duty  Is  com
muted; otherwise It is cheaper, as
there is no stamp duty on the first
securities issued, and the subsequent
duty is a matter between the seller
and the buyer."
The stamp duty on bonds remains
at '/£ per cent instead of being increased to 1 per cent as was proposed. The commutation stamp duty
on municipal securities is at the rate
of Is per £100 per annum, and if the
stock is made duty free It adds to Its
value.
"The cost of keeping registers of
stock is also more expensive than
the charges that are made by banks
for the payment of bank coupons.
Bearer securities are much more popular on the continent than registered
stock, and that if there is a likelihood of any securities of the kind
being marketed on the continent, this
fact should be borne in mind."
The experience of another financial
house in the world's metropolis is
that investors In England infinitely
prefer registered stock to bearer securities, in such flotations as that of
the city of Vancouver. "The class
of investors who buy these securities
are those who are, as a rule, making
a permanent investment, in which
case both from a point of security
and from the point of dividend payments, registered stock is preferable
to bearer securities."
FISHING RETURNS
What the Industry Does For Cities
in  the Old Land
Of late years the fishing industry
in the neighborhood of Peterhead has
grown so remarkably that the town
of Aberdeen alone made a profit of
over $5,000,000 last year, while
other towns have shown marked
growth and increased prosperity.
This information is of especial interest to residents of Prince Rupert
where the industry on the Pacific
coast Is shortly to centre. Fine buildings are springing up, tramways and
garages are being built, and quite
excellent shops are to be found everywhere. The line harbor for the fishing fleets at Peterhead is already
half completed.

Captain   John   Irving   Secures   Two
Good Prospects
The Daley and Sullivan group of
two claims situated three miles back
from the Red Cliff Extension at
Stewart has been bonded to Captain
John Irving, of Victoria, for $35,000.
T. Moore Fletcher, M.E., who made
the examination for the Victoria investor, states that ther is a strong
five-foot vein of quartz traversing
tne claims containing rich values In
arsenical iron. Assays made by the
owners gave returns of $590 and
$127 In gold. Mr. Fletcher, who sampled the showings for his clients, says
that the news of the strike followed
close on his visit and as a consequence numerous locations were
made the morning after his arrival
on all adjoining ground.
CAPITAL  FOR  TELKWA
A. E. Whiting and C. O. Redd, of
Denver, Colo., both mining men of
large experience in western United
States, returned several days ago
trom the Telkwa district where they
completed arrangements for taking
contro1 of the claims owned by C.
Thoman, in Hunter Basin, and providing the money for development
purposes,  says  the Omineca  Herald.
Mr. Whiting expressed himself as
being very well pleased with the
showing on the property, the remarkably high grade of the ore being Its
most attractive feature. Present plans
call for considerable work this coming winter and a vigorous campaign
next summer.
Tne claims involved In the deal He
close to the well known and rich
properties owned by Carr Brothers
of Hazelton and Bulkley valley, and
Wm. Hunter. Besides being a high
grade of copper ore the veins In
Hunter basin carry silver values running In some cases to several hundred ounces to the ton.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
COMMISSION'S WORK
Court for Hearing Railway Disputes Has
Disposed of Many Cases
During Year.
There is Not Likely to be Division
as to Jurisdiction Between
East and West
The utility of the railway commission of Canada and the wide scope of
Its jurisdiction are indicated in
figures for the fiscal year ended on
the 31st of March.
In that time there were 6,125 applications, Including complaints, to
the board. The number of complaints alone was 694. Orders Issued
by the board totalled 3,310, and filings referring to cases, 33,337.
Compared with the previous year,
the apllcations increased by 2,646,
and orders by 1,061. Documents filed
Increased by 9.807.
Of the cases brought before the
commission the proportion so far has
been about three operating to one
traffic case. Under the former head
come such matters as crossings, locations and train services. Traffic cases
relate exclusively to freight and pas-
seng' rates. Some time ago telegraph telephone and express companies were brought within the jurisdiction of the board, but so far very
few specific cases respecting these
corporations have been heard. This
Is attributable to the fact that there
have been general inquiries into the
rates and operating conditions of the
telephone and express companies, to
a lesser degree, into telegraphs, as
affecting press messages.
The disposition has been to hold
Individual cases in abeyance, pending the determination of the general
questions.
Judgment may be expected next
month in the long-standing express
rates case and soon, also, in regard
to te'ephone rates. In respect to commercial telegraph tolls there has
been no general inquiry as yet.
No Division
From the West comes occasionally
talk of dividing the commission into
eastern and western sections, but it
is not likely that this will be done
Two bodies exercising concurrent
jurisdiction over the same corporations might not agree, and conflict
would result between judgments of
the two sections. The plan heretofore has been to send a part of the
commission west periodically but to
make Ottawa the permanent head
quarters. The sysiem of sitting in
various cities tends to greatly reduce
the expense of litigation on complaints before the board. There are
almost as many cases heard in Toronto as In Ottawa, thus operating to
the advantage of the parties from the
districts interested in cases before
the board.
While, until there is a further conference in October, nothing definite
will be done about it, it is pretty certain that the negotiations between
the Canadian and United States governments will eventuate in the formation of an international tribunal
to deal with through traffic cases.
It Is not Improbable that Instead
o\ naming an entirely new commission it may be composed of Chairman
Mabee of the railway commission,
anit Chairman Knapp of the interstate commerce commission.
 o	
FREE TRADE IX EMPIRE
Socialists and the Irish Nationalists
who show any desire to keep the
question iu the arena of political
controversy.
When this question is settled opportunity will be found for consideration of the very burning questions
having to do with tbe issues of tariff
reform and questions affecting the
condition of the people. On the question of tariff reform, Mr. Hammersley
is an enthusiast. In fact, he says that
the main Inspiration of his entry into
political life In the old country was
that he might be able to do something to bring about free trade within the empire.
The statement as to whether there
has been an agreement or not with
respect to the House of Lords will
not be made until parliament meets
again in November.

"My husband is so poetic," said
one ladyone lady to another in a car
the other day.
"Have you ever tried rubbln' his
j'ints with hartshorn liniment,
mum?" interrupted a beefy looking
woman with a market basket at her
feet, who was seated at the lady's
elbow and overheard the remark.
"That"l straighten him out as quick
as anything I know of, if he ain't go'
it too bad."

Former   British   Columbian   In   Imperial House Expresses His Views
Mr. H. St. George Hammersley,
who for many years occupied the position of city solicitor in Vancouver,
has arrived on the coast.
Mr. Hammersley, as is well known,
hold3 a seat In the British House of
Commons as representative for the
Woodstock division of Oxfordshire
county, having been returned for
that seat at the last general election.
Owing to the uncertainty which
obtains as to what Is to be the outcome of the question affecting the
constitution of the House of Lords,
he says the whole situation is In a
state of unrest at present. It is not
yet known what disposition will be
made of the matter by the conference now taking place between representatives of the government and
opposition parties, but Mr. Hammersley Intimates that there is a very
widespread desire In the old country that the question be removed
from the domain of party dispute. He
things It probable that some line of
agreement on which they can act,
will be arrived at and such a settlement would be satisfactory to all
moderate people. It Is only the extreme wing of the Radical party, the

SETTLEMENT .MAY COME
There is every prospect now that
the dispute between the G. T. P. and
the city may be amicably adjusted.
The citizens have taken a deep Interest in the matter and have made
their views known to the council at
an informal meeting held in the city
hall on Saturday. We believe that
the council will be prepared to take
the views there expressed, especially
if backed up by a further expression
of public opinion, as a mandate from
the people of the city that they desire a settlement on the basis of a
compromise as to the amount of taxation which the company will have to
bear on its railway property in this
city.
There Is a tendency in some quarters to judge the members of the
council who met the G. T. P. officials
a little more harshly than Is deserved
under the circumstances. It must be
borne in mind that the members of
the council are the trustees representing the citizens at large. It may
have been, as one of the speakers at
Saturday's meeting expressed it, that
they did not act as diplomatically as
they might have done, but they stood
on the legal rights that they had and
with a fixed amount to meet in the
way of taxation they were reluctant
to allow any taxes to escape them,
without some other source of revenue
being shown them. As it now stands
the council will be up against a deficit if a very heavy reduction is
made.
Under all the circumstances we
favor a reduction in the taxation on
the G.T.P. which seems necessary if
work is to begin on some of the
terminals here at once. The council
may well demand, however, an unequivocal mandate from the citizens
that that course is desired and that
they are prepared to meet the altered
conditions.
It will be possible, we believe, to
arrange with the G.T.P. a settlement
that will not mean entire exemption
upon the railway lands which total
about 340 acres. The taxes on that
portion of the city represents about
one-half the taxation proposed to be
raised although the acreage Is only
about one-sixth that of the city.
While, as waterfront, there will In
time be a special value attaching to
part of the land, yet at the present
time it is not practically more valuable than other land, especially in
view of the fact that to make it ready
for railway purposes a vast amount
of money has to be spent on it.
Taxed In the same ratio as the rest
of the townsite, the company's land
would give an income to the city of
about $35,000 this year. In view
of an early start on permanent works
here the city might possibly make a
compromise which would ensure taxation amounting to a few thousand
dollars less than this or from $15,000
to $25,000. The company would expend a sum many times in excess of
this if induced to begin work at once
nn the round houses, the station and
the hotel.
The cessation of work on these
represents a loss to the city for the
next few months that cannot be estimated as proportionate to the sum
that would he spent by the company
on these works. There is the effect
upon outside capital that will be deterred from coming in on account of
il.
The whole question is one of dollars and cents. It is a question of
expediency that lias to be decided
and the discussion of whether on
principle it is right or wrong lo granl
exemption should have little part In
the matter so far as local citizens are
concerned. It resolves itself in the
final analysis into whether It will
pay.
Mr. Chamberlin, when he left the
city, Issued instructions, we are informed, that the material for the
round bouses that were to have been
started at once, should be stored In
temporary buildings put up for the
purpose until such time as it was
deemed necessary to begin work. At
this stage of her history, Prince Rupert cannot well afford to have works
like this held up.
Let   the  citizens   make  their  will
known to the council In the matter,
and  we doubt not  that the arrangements will be carried out according |
to their wishes.
A GREAT METROPOLIS
"In the future, British Columbia
will have two great cities, each independent of the other, each having its
own territory to draw from and
neither interfering with the trade or
business of the other. Vancouver will
be the metropolis of southern British
Columbia, and Prince Rupert, of tho
northern section of the province."
The above is the statement made
By Charles M. Hays, president of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, upon his arrival in Vancouver, after his last
visit here. The people of Prince Rupert agree with him on the point.
DEATH OF CAPT. AMSBURY
Well  Known Shipping Man of Vancouver Died  Suddenly
A seaman, born of a race of bold
navigators, a skipper at the age of
twenty-one, a business man highly
esteemed in shipping circles in this
city and the Pacific coast, Captain
Fred W. Amsbury, one of the partners in the Vancouver and Victoria
Stevedoring company, died Saturday
at his home In Vancouver. He is
survived by a wife and family. His
death was wholly unexpected, and
came as a great shock to his many
friends In that city.
Captain Amsbury was born in the
state of Maine forty-six years ago, his
father and fathers before him being
of that race of hardy seamen who
made the state famous. His father,
a master of a full-rigged sailing ship,
chose the sea as a profession for the
son, and before the younger Amsbury
was twelve years of age, he had started his life's profession as a cabin boy
on one of the numerous vessels that
ply out of the many harbors of
Maine. At twenty-one years of age, a
time when the average navigator is
either before the mast or still in
some nautical college, young Amsbury was made captain and given
command of his first ship.
A curious tale has often been related by the captain. At the time
he received his first command he
chanced to be sailing through the
English channel, and there spoke another American ship. After the usual
formalities had been passed, the
skippers inquired as to the name of
the other, with the result that young
Amsbury read by the signals that
his father commanded the other vessel, while the elder Amsbury was
equally surprised when he learned
that his son was master of the vessel
he spoke.
Captain Amsbury gave up the sea
about nine years ago, and coming to
Vancouver became identified with the
Vancouver & Victoria Stevedoring
Company.

Victoria. —- The death occurred
lately in County Galway, of Commander F. F. C. Dundas, a brother
of Mr. J. E. F. Dundas, of Victoria,
and at one time stationed at Esquimau. The late Commander Dundas
had an eventful carer, seeing much
of active service. He was twice
wounded In action, was mentioned in
dispatches for his gallantry, and won
two medals with clasps and also the
Khedive's bronze star. Both in the
successful Witu expedition to the
east coast of Africa and in the Benin
campaign he took an active part, receiving a severe wound in an encounter at Benin. He was also present at engagements off the Chinese
coast and in Egypt. In seamanship
he was particularly noted for the
skilful management displayed in
bringing his ship to her moorings,
despite adverse conditions of weather
wind and tide. The funeral, with
full military honors, took place from
the family seat, Clobemon Hall, Wexford. Another surviving brother is
Col. Sir Lorenzo G. Dundas, K.C.B.,
a Crimean veteran.
At the end of eighteen months'
operation of Sir Richard Cartwright's
government annuities scheme, annuities amounting to $560,000 have
been sold. The average annuity is
$250. Approximately one-third of
the annuities are purchased by women.

In the opinion of mining men who
have gone over the ground the Hazelton District is likely to come into
more than ordinary prominence next
summer when by means of the G. T.
P. better transportation facilities will
be provided.
The large number of men prominent in mining circles who continue
to make pilgrimages up the saoenn,
many of them going many times during the summer, indicates that there
is more than mere curiosity aroused.
The Omineca Herald In Its last
number publishes a letter from R. P.
Trimble, a mining man of Portland,
Ore., relative to the new discoveries
In the district near the south end
of Babine lake where, native silver
had been discovered by two prospectors, Severson and Swanson.
Mr. Trimble has spent the summer In this district for the past four
years and is representing large capital in Portland and Spokane.
Writing under date of August 17,
he says:—
"We have struck free gold and
native silver near the south end of
uabine lake, about fifteen miles from
the Grand Trunk right of way. The
ore occurs both free and with tel-
lurides, and is similar to the ore deposits of Cripple Creek. There the
hills are low lying, with a basement
rock of granite, over which were
spread breccias and tuffs. Through
these came dykes. The whole region is surrounded by granite. So
in this country the hills we have
struck the rich stuff in are the low
lying ones, close to the lake.
"The basement rock Is granite and
is covered with something that looks
like quartzite, and this Is cut by
dykes. The ore is very rich in places
and much replacement has occurred
In the country rock adjoining the
fissures. I have found net work gold
in the country rock, alongside of
several small fissures which carried
wire silver.
"We have located several claims
ourselves and have also purchased
outright or bonded all the claims located by Severson, Swanson, Haynes
and Macdonald. They and ourselves
are the only ones that I know of who
have come Into this new place.
'The district Is about two and a
half miles wide, but how long It is I
had no time to find out."

"Ah, my poor man," said the sympathetic housewife as she handed
out a wedge of gooseberry pie, "tell
me the story of your life?"
"Ah, mum, It Is a sad tale," responded Sandy Pikes as he wiped
away a tear. "In me boyhood days
I used to be a steeplechase rider, and
often made de water jump."
"And now, my poor man?"
"Why, de water makes me jump.
Tnanks for de pie, mum."

CRITICISM  OF  DEW
Detective Methods Followed by Him
Were    Anything    But
Up-to-date
M.A.P., T. P. O'Connor's paper in
London, deals In an open manner
with Inspector Dew. The paper says:
"With Inspector Dew, in his private capacity, the public is not concerned. The information recently
given to the world that he Is domesticated and musical leaves the
world still breathing. But Inspector
Dew stands for the criminal Investigation department. New Scotland
Yard, and their methods, and as such
he is an absorbing picture, the more
so that he has cost the country almost the price of an old master.
"Very briefly, to recapitulate the
facts of the case, Mrs. Crippen disappeared on or about January 31st,
1910. To her friends, her husband
told an unconvincing story of her
death In America.
"On June 28th these friends communicated their suspicions to Scotland Yard. Scotland Yard apparently were not much impressed. Anyway, the actual conduct of the case
was handed over to Inspector Dew,
an officer of good record, but of no
particular distinction.
Dazzling Rapidity
"Acting with almost dazzling rapidity, Inspector Dew calls on Crippen on July 8th—ten days later.
"To an ordinary man the advantage to be gained by putting Crippen
on his guard is not quite plain. A
sense of fair play is all very well,
but to indicate to a man that he is
suspected of murder is perhaps carrying our Idea of giving a man a
chance too far.
"Crippen has a pleasant chat with
Dew, tells him another and a more
plausible tale to account for Belle
Elmore's disappearance, shows him
over the house, and even takes him
down to ths fatal cellar, where the
eagle eyes of the sleuth hound of
the law—do sleuth hounds have
eagle eyes?—detect nothing suspicious.
"Crippen promises not to run
away, but, in a very caddish manner,

breaks his word and bolts next day,
accompanied hy Miss Le Neve,
"Crippen bolted on July 9; it was
not until July 11 that Inspector Dew,
by a brilliant piece of detective work,
discovered that the bird had flown.
Week's Weary Wait
"Apparently the police had a
touching faith in Crippen, and expected him to return.
"Then, nearly a week after Crippen had disappeared, the hue and cry
was raised.
"Meanwhile, Dew, the Indefatlga
ble, was here, there, and everywheri
that the wanted couple were not.
"It does not seem to have occurred
to the authorities that Brussels, during exhibition time, would be a likely hiding place for a fugitive.
"It 1b an axiom in criminology that
a hunted man usually makes for the
scenes of his childhood.
"Crippen played the game. He did
everything that untrained Intelligence might expect him to do. He
went to Brussels.
"Crippen followed the rule, and
tried to return to his native America
by way of Canada, and he very nearly succeeded.
"Dew on Duty?"
"True, he came on board at Antwerp;  but a mere layman  may be
pardoned  for  thinking  that  within
two days Scotland Yard might have
had every port by   which    Crippej
could join a boat bound for North or
South America  effectively  watched.
Then the captain of   the    Montrose
sent a message to the   effect    that
Crippen was on board his ship.
"At last Inspector Dew got going.
"Apparently acting under instructions, he hurled himself into a train
and caught the Laurentic.
"Hundreds of business men do this
sort of thing every week; but Scotland Yard detectives are not business
men.
"Dew's dash for Liverpool stirred
the country.
"The public felt tlnu they were
getting their money's worth out of
the OLD.
"Crippen had hoodwinked Dew;
obviously, therefore, Dew was the
man to send after him.
"If there be any flaw in this logic,
I can't find it—I am not a detective-
inspector.
"Sherlock Holmes could hardly
ha've effected the capture in neater
fashion.
"The pilot disguise was worthy of
the highest moments of Arsene
Lupin; but here, again, the credit of
It is due, not to Dew, but to Captain
Kendall.
"Crippen has now been caught
(thanks mainly to his own stupidity)
after an expenditure of some £5,000
of public money, all of which could
have been saved If Inspector Dew had
taken the very ordinary precaution
of having Crippen shadowed when he
was first suspected.
"Why such precautions were not
taken must be explained, or public
faith in the capacity of Scotland Yard
will be seriously shaken."

might also be noted that the score

uniformly high standard of shooting.
Of the fourteen boys who competed

QUESTION OF REFEREES
Providing they can get eastern
officials for this fall, the Nationals
of Montreal, champions of the National Lacrosse club, will come to
the coast about the middle of next
month and play New Westminster for
the Minto cup. As the trustees can
hardly insist on New Westminster
accepting eastern officials and It Is
a foregone conclusion that the
world's champions will not accede to
the Nationals request, doubt Is expressed on all sides whether the
Frenchmen will make the trip.
Eddie St. Pere, president of the
Nationals, announces that the team
will come, but only under the conditions mentioned above. While western enthusiasts would be pleased to
have a visit from Newsy Lalonde's
team, they do not hesitate to say
that the Royals would be foolish to
accept eastern officials. That's the
situation in a nutshell. Nationals
would get dates all right, but that Is
about all they can expect.

Jack said that he had a number of
flattering offers from Hugh Mcintosh, the promoter. Mcintosh is on
his way to the British metropolis,
where he will unfold his plans for
a fight in England or Australia. The

Mr. E. J. Chamberlin, general
manager of the Grand Trunk Paci-
tic, referring to the chartering of the
Rupert City, said in Vancouver that
his department of the system felt as
if the services of a vessel for the ex
elusive purposes of transporting
equipment and supplies from Vancouver to Prince Rupert was needed;
and as a result, the railroad took the
charter of the Rupert City. Mr.
Chamberlin stated that the railroad
would use the vessel until December
15, when their present charter would
end. The Rupert City, he also stated,
might be held for another year after
that time, if the steamer's services
were needed, but as to the report that
the company intended purchasing the
steamer, he said that matter had not
been considered.
FELL OVERBOARD
assessment of the G. T. P. Land company that was objected to. It was
the assessment on the railway company's property that was objected to.
He did not believe in getting into a
fight with the G.T.P. The officials
had come here with the Intention of
starting work on the hotel, on the
station and other works. They had
gone away as a result of no settlement being reached without starting)
any of it.
There was no getting away from
the fact that the labor conditions In
British Columbia were very bad. If
these conditions continued work
would be completed to Aldermere
and then the work would be prosecuted from the other end alone.
As a property owner he wanted to
see a settlement of this matter. He
thought a settlement could be reached if they showed a readiness to meet
the company half way.
Wanted Proposition
Aid. Pattullo wished to know If
there was any concrete offer to put
up to the G.T.P. The company had
told the council when they met It
that It would submit nothing.
Aid. Smith said that he believed
any business man would be ready to
enter Into negotiations. It was a
business proposition. He wished to
say that at the meeting held between
the council and Mr. Hays the council
as then constituted was not representative of the views of all the council. He did not feel hurt that he was
not asked to be present. He wished
to suggest, however, that perhaps
those members of the council then
present were not the most diplomatic. He felt this was something that
should be taken up by citizens' as a
whole.
Mr. Dunn wanted the matter
brought to a head. To do so he
moved that the mayor get Into
negotiations with the heads of the
G. T. P. with respect to the assessment on the railway property.
Aid. Barrow suggested that they
were losing sight of the fact that it
was the G. T. P. that was the aggrieved party in this dispute.. He
would not stick on technicalities. He
suggested, however, that the mayor
might write to Mr. Hays and request
a proposition. He introduced a motion to that effect.
It was then suggested that In that
connection Mr. Hays might be requested to send some one with power
to negotiate In the matter.
Mr. Stephens rather favored calling a public meeting.  The gathering
Aftr passing Seymour Narrows on
the way north, the G. T P. steamer
Prince George had the unpleasant
experience of having to turn and pick
up a third class passenger who had
fallen overboard.
The man's explanation was that
his hat had blown off and In an attempt to catch it he lost his balance
and fell Into the water.
The Prince George at once slowed
down and the work of recovering him
commenced. The British Columbia
was in the vicinity at the time and
was whistled to.| That vessel also
joined in the rescue work. The man
proved a strong swimmer and after
about twenty minutes in the water
was taken on board again.

GOOD MARKSMEN
Britisli Columbia marksmen have
always made a good showing with
tiie rifle in competition with the rest
of Canada, and they may be confident
that the next generation will worthily uphold the honor of the province.
The result of the Cadet Rifle
matches of last June, In which some
twenty cadet corps competed from
all over the Dominion, has just been
announced, and the premier honors
have fallen to the boys of the University school of Victoria. In four
matches their aggregate was 2201
points out of a possible 2800, a
score not previously equalled In these
contests. The prize, a handsome silver shield mounted on ebony, brings
all the more credit to the winners, In
that they fired with the open service
sights, while many other corps used
the rear aperture sight, contrary to
the  regulations  then  in  force.       It
Shipping Illustrated of New York
says: "It is stated in Vancouver that
Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann have
■ '."finitely decided to enter the Pacific fade, and that with this end in!
view they will put on the route next j
year tow new boats, to be named
after Dukes, now building in Great
Britain. The new vessels will run
from Vancouver to Stewart, calling
at Victoria, and possibly at Seattle." |
Nothing is known on the coast In ■
this regard, although it  Is generally
considered  that  the  general  scheme
of   developmnt   undertaken   on   this
coast by the magnates of the Canadian  Northern  railroad  includes the
establishment of a  coasting service |
on the British Columbia coast and a !
car-ferry  service  between     Victoria I

there assembled could not properly

opinion.
The Mayor Explains
Mayor Stork, who was presiding,
said he wished to put himself right.
He recalled the facts of the meeting
that had taken place when Mr. Hays
was in the city. The secretary to Mr.
Hays had informed him (the mayor)
only half an hour ahead that he
would like to meet him (the mayor).
His Worship said that he had asked
that he might bring some of the aldermen. It was not an easy matter
to get many of the aldermen on such
short notice. He had got Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Lynch. He had no
ulterior motive in selecting these
two.
After the matter was discussed
with Mr. Hays It was pressed upon
the head of the G. T. P. that he make
a proposition. Mr. Hays would not
do so. He said he had no proposition to offer. The situation was thus
forced upon them of leaving the matter as It stood. If the citizens had
any suggestion to make they should
make It.
Citizens Part
Mr. Westenhaver agreed that any
suggestion the citizens had should be
forthcoming.
James Douglas wanted a public
meeting.
Aid. Pattullo did not think that
under the circumstances the mayor
should be asked  to write.
It was advised then that Mr. Tate
be acquainted with the facts and It
be suggested that he might come to
Prince Rupert.
A'd. Smith suggested that three
citizens take this up.
Mr. Gibbons said that if the situation were reversed and the company's
assessment had been too low negotiations would have been opened.
Aid. Lynch said that from the conference with Mr. Hays he got the
impression that what the company
wanted was an agreement covering
ten years. Mr. Hays, he believed,
wanted the council to make an agreement and have it ratified at Victoria.
In order to bring the matter to a
conclusion, Mr. Law moved, seconded
by Mr. Arnott, tnat Mr. Dunn get in
communication with, the G. T. P. officials for the purpose of seeing if
Mr. Tate could not return and some
settlement be arrived at.
Mr. Dunn said he would soon do it
if it were the wish of the meeting
that he should.
The motion carried, and Mr. Dunn
in characteristic style, lost no time In
finding Superintendent Mehan and
having the communication sent on to
the G.T.P. officials.

GAMBLING AT RACES
Methodist General Conference Before Concluding Labors Make Strong
Recommendations.
Various Matters Dealt With by Legislative   Body   of   That
Demonination
The concluding days of the general
conference of the Methodist church
which met in Victoria and which is
the legislative body for Methodism
throughout Canada, meeting every
fourth year, saw some Interesting
subjects dealt with.
A message of loyalty was sent to
King George V. The message assures his majesty of the loyal devotion to his person and throne of
the million and a quarter Methodists
In the Dominion and the earnest and
prayerful desire of the conference
that be will do all in his power towards building up a righteous and
God-fearing nation in the northern
half of this continent as an integral
part of a great and united British
empire. ,
Race track gambling (a problem
which is described as having become
more acute in Canada through growing wealth and luxury and through
the outlawing of the business of
hookmaking in New York and other
states of the adjoining republic) was
strongly condemned in a report of
the temperance, prohibition and
moral reform committee. Attention
is drawn to the Miller bill and it is
greatly regretted that owing to the
opposition of the minister of justice
the bill failed to secure a majority in
the house and as a result a compromise bill was accepted. This bill
it is stated, while reducing and restricting the evils of the race track,
in various ways, fails to adopt the
principle of outlawing race track
gambling as a business.
The moral reform department of
the church has been instructed to
maintain the agitation and insist that
professional gambling on racetracks
be prohibited by act of parliament
at tne earliest possible date.
Dealing with the traffic in women,
Its abominations and menace are described as awakening the consciences
of Christian states to the enormity of
the curse. It is pointed out that the
equally Infamous and diabolical
methods employed in its behalf have
been brought into the white light of
exposure. Against this traffic the
conference urges the most solemn
warnings, the circulation of literature which exposes its methods and
the vigorous enforcement of the law
against offenders. In this connection
the utter Insufficiency of the penalties provided are quoted and a considerable increase In these are demanded. It is pointed out that the
maximum penalty should be not less
than ten years with hard labor.
The conference expressed its grave
disapproval of the practice that is
obtaining in several places in the
West of employing Indians for the
purposes of exhibition in connection
with agricultural and other shows as
productive of unsettling and demoralizing effects among them, and
urges that the department of Indian
affairs should be asked to interfere
and employ such counsel and other
methods that may be deemed needful
to repress the practice.
Among other recommendations of
the temperance committee adopted
unanimously by the conference Is a
protest against the permissal of the
sale of liquor In officers' and sergeants' messes in property under the
control of the militia department of
Canada.
Owing to an explanation made by
Chancellor N. S. Burwash, no action
bus been taken In the case of Skill
& King, the Toronto firm of publishers sentenced for selling obscene
literature. Dr. Burwash stated that
he had Information that King alone
was Implicated In the crime and tbat
Skill, the senior partner, knew nothing whatever of it. On the strength
of his knowledge, Dr. Burwash stated that he had petitioned the minister of justice for the release of
Skill. Any further action of the
church in connection with the sale of
obscene literature has been left In
the bands of the Rev. Dr. Chown,
who, until the end of the present
year, will act as secretary of the
moral reform and temperance committee.

ICE IN HUDSON BAY
Steamer Stanley Returns From Trip to
Frozen Waterway.
Report  Brought   is   None   Too   Encouraging For Navigation
Prospects
The government steamer Stanley
has returned to Halifax from Hudson
bay. From the reports of the Stanley's officers, It cannot be said that
the outlook Is very promising for
the proposed ocean route from Nelson river or Port Churchill.
The Stanley arrived at Churchill
on July 27, and left to return on July
2 9. On the way to Nelson she encountered much ice—miles cf it—
good solid ice, and all the time the
thermometer was at the freezing
point and lower.
The survey schooner Chrlssie G.
Thomey, which left Halifax some
time ahead of the Stanley with Mr.
Parizeau, formerly of the hydro-
graphic survey staff of the Lillooet on
this coast, was picked up inside of
Hudson bay and towed to within fif
teen miles of Nelson, So heavy was
the ice encountered that a 12-inch
hawser had to he used, and this snapped once.
The Thomey anchored in six
fathoms of water, off Nelson river,
and distant sixteen miles from the
shore. This is the nearest she could
get to the laud at that point. A
gasoline launch was despatched to
take p light craft grounded and had
to wait for the tide to effect a landing. The tides here are very much
as the Bay of Fundy tides.
The Stanley had no difficulty in
making Fort Churchill, getting as
close as a quarter of a mile from
the shore.
Captain Myles and his staff were
landed there.
On the return the Stanley encountered more Ice, much more than on
•the journey to Churchill. The Ice
extended for miles out into the bay,
and at times was sufficient to bring
the Stanley to a quick stop. The
Stanley is built for ice breaking, and
even at that she had quite a task to
get through. She suffered no very
serious damage, however, though she
will likely be obliged to go on the
slip later on to have some plates
fastened.
All this presages a none too pleasant outlook for the Thomey, which
has only her sails to rely upon. The
Thomey is expected to leave as early
as possible, in order to escape Imprisonment in the bay all winter.
The Earl Grey la now in Hudson
bay, and is to return to Quebec as
soon as the governor-general reaches
the coast. As she is a powerful Ice
breaker, no anxiety is felt on her
account.
According to the accounts brought
by the Stanley, the Hudson bay is a
pretty tough proposition as a steamship route. Just one year ago a
steamer, so the people at Churchill
said, was carried up and down the
bay for eighteen days before reaching Churchill. The thermometer got
as low as 49 degrees last winter, but
the usual marking of the glass is 60
degrees. Last winter was an exceptionally fine and mild one.
As there are only sixteen fathoms
of water sixteen miles off Nelson that
point does not loom up very promising for the terminus of the Hudson
Bay railway. Conditions at Churchill
are better.
The summer in the bay is very
short. In fact, there can be said to
be very little or no summer at all.
The Ice begins to form again next
month, and with the ice "left over"
the proposition looks rather tough.
Mr. Parizeau, the engineer in
charge of the Thomey's party, will
remain at the bay until the ice is
good and hard, and will then travel
overland to Winnipeg. On his report will depend the feasibility of
Nelson river as a port for ocean-going steamers.
This is the first report from the
Canadian fleet In Hudson bay, and
while it Is not official, it still gives
a good idea of what has to be encountered in the task of making that
route a highway between Canada and
England.
