SPOKE BITTER WORDS
Aldermen at the Board Exchange Compliments at Neetint of Council
Last Evening
Liquor Amendment  Is Put Through
Committee After Attack From
Aid.  Newton
The consideration of the liquor license amendment bylaw last evening
again called forth from Alderman
New en an attack upon some other
menu-?s of the council which ended
in rather uncomplimentary language
being used across the table. The
amendment provides for the suspension of the rule making it compulsory
for notice to be given in applying for
a renewal of a 'icense. The object
of the amendment introduced is to
legalize the renewa' of certain licenses now in existence which could
not otherwise be renewed. The suspension is for ewo months and cannot affect new licenses.
When the council went into committee of the whole with his worship in the chair it was proposed by
Aid. Kerr that the enacting section
of the bylaw should pass.
The Critic Heard
Aid. Newton at once took exception. He said he had not hoped that
this question wound come up again
this evening. He had thought with
two aldermen ont of the city and one
of them having left because of this
question the matter might have been
dropped.    He was going to renew the

Victoria, July 11.—Wm. Fleet

Nation, left yesterday by the

part of the field work season
in examining the mineral bearing  country  around   Hazelton.
attack. He would rather not have
had to do so. He did not like to
take strong issue with any member
of the board. He argued that the
hotel licenses were not in danger.
This was simply 'o save the bottle
license. The contention that this is
to save Prudhomme he felt was a'so
flimsy. It was peculiar to see the
sympathy for Alex. Prudhomme, Why
was there not more sympathy with
some of the applicants for bottle licenses that did not get them. The
frame up for bottle licenses was done
for self-interest and not for the good
of the city. Two bottle licenses had
been Issued, yet in rea'ity only one
bottle license existed. This made the
situation much more contemptible. In
response to Aid. Clayton as to the
last meeting that he should "elucidate," he proposed to do so. He
would begin with Aid. Hilditch having bad the contract for the construction of one of the buildings which
housed one of the bottle licenses and
of having effected repairs to the
other. These were but one business,
he fe.t. He believed this was planned
from the beginning.
Aid. Hilditch wished the remarks
of Aid. Newton taken verbatim, as he
was making serious charges and
might have to answer .to them.
Aid. Newton, proceeding, referred
to the fact that when his worship
left the city, instead of tlie senior
member, Aid. Smith, being made acting mayor, Aid. Hilditch, on the motion of Aid. Smith, was made acting
mayor, and later a member of the license commission. It was, he believed,
all prepared that Aid. Hilditch should
be so elected.
Makes a  Correction
Aid. Smith challenged the statements. He had asked Aid. Kirkpatrick to accept the position of acting
mayor but he would not accept.
Aid. Hilditch said he had only
taken the position of acting mayor
on the understanding that he would
not have anything to do with the license board. If he had known he
would have been obliged to serve on
that board he would not have accepted the position. He made this explanation in view of the 'insinuation
of that cur, Aid. Newton."
Aid. Ker said that it was on the
recommendation of the city solicitor
that Aid. Hllditch was appointed to
the license commission.

AN EARLY DISSOLUTION OF THE HOUSE IS
EXPECTED TO FOLLOW AT OTTAWA
Sir Wilfrid is Preparing for an Appeal in August if He Does Not Get His Own Way in Parliament—Party Leaders
Have Been Warned to Make Ready for a Fight Which Promises to be Short But Bitter—Mr. Bordon
Has Been Greatly Encouraged by His Campaign Tour Through the Prairie Provinces
During the Past Few Weeks
(Special to The Journal)
Quebec, July 11.—Dissolution of
parliament within a month and a
short campaign with the voting all
over except in the Yukon by September, is the prospect which confronts the people of Canada today.
Whether this wil develop or not depends altogether upon the leader of
the opposition and his advisors. One
thing is certain, the adjourned session of parliament will not last more
than three weeks before there is either a dead-lock or prorogation.
Sound Rattle Ciy
While Sir Wilfrid and his colleagues are keeping their counsel,
word has gone out to the party leaders throughout the Dominion to get
ready for the fight. Should Mr. Borden-
the leader of the opposition, decline
to allow any progress to be made
with   reciprocity   when    the    house
meets again on July 18, as has been
stated in the tour in the west, to
be the case, then the government will
ask for supply—not for another interim supply until redistribution can
be drafted and passed—but supply
for the remaining portion of the fiscal year.
This will probably result in a
struggle of endurance lasting some
days  and   nights   and   will   possibly
conclude with dissolution with the
political atmosphere boiling hot.
Mr. Borden Pleased
The tour which Mr. Borden has
concluded through the prairies has
been very gratifying to him and the
Conservative leaders are convinced
that the western provinces will in
the event of an early appeal being
taken surprise the supporters of reciprocity by a strong vote against the
pact.
THE SMELTER TOWN WILL BE PRETENTIOUS
This week the Hidden Creek mine
at Goose Bay is being visited by an
important party of Granby officials,
who will likely decide upon the plans
for the future development of the
property, including the question of
the reduction works.
The party, which reached here by
the Prince George on Saturday, has
at its head P. M. Sylvester of Spokane, the assistant general manager
of the Granby corporation; 0. B.
Smith Jr., Gen. Wooster, E. Hutchinson of Sanfrancisco and Mr. Brown
of Spokane, all prominently identified
with  the Granby interests.
eMr. Sylvester when Interviewed
confirmed the report that the whole
property at Hidden Creek had now
passed into the hands of the Granby
people, they having bought ou the
remaining 20 per cent interest from
Rodger Bros.   The property was thus
completely   under   the  one   management.
With respect to the plans for the
future, Mr. Sylvester did not care to
say much. The details in connection
with these had yet to be worked out
and on the present trip he would go
into the question involved. The
townsite question was not a settled
one and would not be until it was
finally decided exactly where the
smelter was to be located.
The plans of the company, it was
learned, are for something quite
elaborate. It is said to be in the
minds of the company heads to have
works at the smelter site that will
rival the old headquarters at Grand
Forks. There is a likelihood that the
town required to provide for the
smelter employees v. ill call for a town
quite as large as that at Grand Porks
so that there will be a very considerable centre developed close to the
city.

CENCUS RETURNS
An echo from the old trouble between Aid. Newton and Aid. Hllditch
was heard last evening just before
the council closed and after the numerous spectators had left, believing
that the entertainment for the evening was over. It arose over a request
made in writing by Aid. Hilditch that
Aid. Newton make definite charges
along the lines hinted at a few weeks
before and which he said were being
talked about on the streets.
The request, coming after a strenuous battle earlier in the evening,
found Aid. Newton in anything but
a peaceful frame of mind and he
waxed wroth in condemning the
alderman who questioned him and returned to the old trouble again.
No Further Charges
When the request was made by
Aid. Hilditch Aid. Newton said that
he had made his statenients openly.
He had not sneaked around to make
them. He had done all he proposed
to do.
Aid. Hllditch felt that If any alderman felt that another alderman had
been guilty of malfeasance he should
make charges and allow it to be investigated.    It did harm not only in

CREDIT IS GOOD
At the council meeting last
evening the question of the city's
credit came up Incidentally In
connection with u proposal to
spend a few hundred dollars In
an extension of a water main on
Eighth  avenue.
His worship said the manager
of the Bank of Montreal had
informed him that that Institution was prepared to advance
up to $700,000 to the city now.
With the passing of the rate
bylaw the credit of the city
with the bank would be still
further increased to $1,000,000,
the bank had stated.
His worship said he did not
mean by this to encourage any
extravagance. The city should
on the contrary go cautiously.
Anything done should be on a
permanent scale, he felt, and for
this reason he favored the
carrying out of any extensions
on plans that would fit in with
the permanent system.
Will Lay Walks at Once
The council has decided on the
report of the board of works to lay
sidewalks on Second avenue and
Third avenue as soon as it can be
done provided tlie property owners
affected guarantee the cost.
G. G. S. Lindsey of Toronto Accompanied by Some of the
World's Greatest Operators Will Inspect
the Areas in This District
During August.
G. G. S. Lindsey of Toronto formerly president of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company, will be here next
week on a trip made for tbe purpose
of looking into mining investments
in the Hazelton district. Last year
this well known investor paid a visit
to the coast and spent a few days
in Prince Rupert, lie intended at
Hint time to go to Hazelton, but wus
prevented from doing so owing to the
lack of transportation facilities.
He Is interested with Toronto capital In the coal measures at Groundhog mountain, where James McEvoy,
M. E., Is carrying on work for tlie
syndicate in developing tlie body.
Louis Ryersback, managing director, and Hugh F. Marriott, consulting engineer of the Central Mining
and Investment Corporation of London, England, will visit this coutry
in August. This corporation has recently taken over and consolidated
with their own the interests of
Messrs. Wernher, Beit & Company
and Messrs. Eckstein & Company, the
largest operators in Kimberley and
the South African Rand. These gentlemen are making a tour of Canada
commencing in New Brunswick, and
will visit the most interesting mining
localities in this country in company
with G. G. S. Lindsey. The party
will arrive in New York on July 28
and It is expected they will reach
Vancouver on August 21, after which
they will visit both Hazelton and the
Portland Canal.
Mr. Marriott, it will be remembered, represented with William Freche-
ville the Institution of Mining and
Metallurgy on the siiminerf excursion of the Canadian Mining Institute in toos.   The representatives of
the various mining institutions of
Europe and America, at that time,
were taken across the continent aud
shown tlie principal places of interest.
Mr. Lindsey is one of the best
known mining investors in Canada.
With the early advent of the. railway to Hazelton the coal measures
In which he Is Interested came Into
prominence and Mr. McEvoy'a location there a tew weeks ago Indicate
thnt the fullest tlevelopinenl is now
to follow.
Several seams have been located.
One of them, six feel in thickness,
litis bi'e'ii stripped in six different
places in considerable distances
apart, The coal is a typical anthracite averaging about 82 per cent in
fixed carbon. In no place ilo the
seams dip at a greater angle than
ten degrees, thus ensuring cheap
mining. Mr. McEvoy pointed out
that owing to the configuration of
the country the seams could be easily
reached, in no instance Involving
sinking to them more than three
hundred feet from surface. The coal
has been laid down very uniformly.
A geological examination showed that
the seams were once overlaid by a
molten mass which caused a metamorphosis producing results that
usually take ages of pressure to perform. Mr. McEvoy, who Is essentially conservative in opinion, feels
confident that the Skeena river field
will with further development he-
come a very large producer. Tlie
coal is equally adapted for steaming
and domestic purposes. Quite recently an extension nf the claims wns
located by outside parties who are
sending in miners this season.

where money was being wasted. Yet
what was the good accomplished?
"What was the use, you browbeated

AMONG THE MINES
RICH    PLACER    DIGGINGS
Discovered   in   Willow   River East  of
Furt George—Ground Staked
for Miles
Considerable iniereste has been
awakened during the least v. eek by
reports circulated in Quesnel of rich
placer ground having been discovered in the Willow river country,
about twenty-five miles east of Fort
George. There are a number of nicn
now in that district and stories are
rife of rich pay being discovered
daily. The ground is reported to be
staked for miles on the river and
tributary creeks.
Those familiar with the Willow
river district evince no surprise at
the mention of rich gob' discoveries
there. The country Is a continuation
of the famous Baraerville placer
mines from which millions have been
extracted. At various times in years
past prospectors have visited the
Willow river district and brought
back god evidence of the rlchnes:
of the river gravel. Owing to the
inacessibility of the country and the
distance from supplies only casual
prospecting has been done. Dave
Perkins of Quesnel, who was in the
Barkerville county In '94, tells of
several Chinamen who cleaned up
fortunes washing gold on the bars
of Willow river.
Tlie development of the recent discoveries will be awaited with interest. The country lies within eusy
reach of Fort George by canoe.

In regard to Sir Wilfrid Laurier's

The Ontario premier concluded by
remarking that a strikingly unpleasant feature of tlie Imperial Confer-
| ence was the disinclination of the
oversea premiers to push the various
propositions  put   forward.

ORE IMPROVING
Omineca Mines Show Up Better With
Further Prosecution of
Work
E. L. Kinman, controlling owner of
the Omineca mines, says that he proposed to ship from iOO to 200 tons
of high grade ore from the property
this summer and that a machinery
plant for running air drills will be
installed before winter sets in, to be
available for driving a long crosscut
tunnel to tap the vein at depth.
The squeeze has been passed in
the Erie shaft at a much shorter distance than expected and the higl.
grade ore has widened out to two
feet. The appearance of the ore has
widened out to two fet. The appearance of the ore has changed until
it Is now impossible to tell it from
the best ore from the Silver Cup
mine. About two tons of ore are
coming out for each foot of sinking,
which makes the shaft much more
than pay expenses if the ore were
being marketed.
From 500 to 1,000 tons of ore
could be easily gathered from the
surface trappings but the ore that is
coming out of the shaft wi'I be what
will he shipped in order to get the
best possible test of the values.

PRINCE  RUPERT JOURNAL
STEALING A CROWN
Attempts Hade in Years Gone by to
Secure the Royal Sign From
the Tower
The Coronation of King George Revives  Interest in This
Historic  Event
The coronation of the king and
queen and the use of all the royal
jewels and insignia of office, so carefully guarded, recall the celebrated
attempt of Colonel Thomas Blood to
steal these jewels and regalia on
May 9, 1671. The crown royal jewels were then, as now, safely guarded
in tbe Tower of London. Sir Evelyn
Wood, who has charge of the Tower
and jewels at present, is however,
better prepared to guard these priceless emblems of British royalty than
was Talbot Edwards, who was the
custodian 240 years ago. Colonel
Blood, who was the son of an Irish
blacksiinth, first saw the jewels as
a visitor to the Tower, and was an
adventurer, and even criminal, at
that time. He had been the leader
in the attempt to seize the Duke of
Ordmond, the lord lieutenant of Ireland; he had endeavored to worm
himself in as a friend among the
Scottish Covenanters, and in other
instances had been a bold plotter, always to the detriment of those he
joined or sought to join. The story
of the bold crime, which in its after
effects was as startling almost as
that of the attempt itself, was told
by Talbot Edwards to John Strype,
and in John Bayley's "Histories and
Antiquities of the Tower of London"
the complete record of the attempt Is
given. John Timhs and other old
writers also repeat the story, so that
a very clear and corrected account of
the strange crime has been preserved.
It is interesting reading; the
quaint old world story of how Blood,
disguised as a clergyman, with his
supposed wife—his own wife was at
home ill at the time—came to the
Tower to see the jewels; how the
supposed wife pretended to faint and
was carried into the keeper's rooms
and there cared for. Then came
other friendly visits of the supposed
aged clergyman and his wife; presents passed between the aged couples, and finally the clergyman proposed an engagement between the
daughter of Talbot Edwards and an
imaginary nephew of Blood's. Edwards agreed, and the ninth of
May was fixed on as the date for
the young man to call and see his
bride-to-be. During visits to the
Tower, Blood, as the clergyman, was
very unctuous, and said grace with
great devotion.
On the morning of May 9 Blood
called and had with him three male
friends. He said his wife would arrive later, and while waiting he asked that bis friends be shown the
jewel room. Edwards conducted
them there, and on entering the
room was disarmed and gagged. The
jewels were seized and placed In a
bag. And now let Bayley tell the
story In his own words:
"At the critical moment, fortunately, the son of Mr. Edwards, who
had been in Flanders with Sir John
Talbot, and on his landing In England had obtained leave to come,
post, to visit his father, happened
to arrive, and on coming to the door
the person Hint stood sentinel asked
with whom he would speak, to which
he answered that he belonged to
the house; and, perceiving the person to he a stranger, told him that
if he had tiny business with his father he would acquaint him with
il, and so hastened upstairs to salute
his friends. This unexepected accident spread confusion amongst the
party, and they instantly decamped
with the crown anil nib, leaving the
sceptre yet  unfiled.
"The aged keeper now raised himself upon his legs, forced the gag
from his mouth, and cried, 'Treason!
Murder!' which, being heard by his
daughter, who was perhaps, anxiously expecting far other sounds,
ran out and reiterated the cry. The
alarm now became general, and
young Edwards and his brother-in-
law, Captain Beckman, ran after his
conspirators, whom a warder put
himself in a position to stop, but
Blood discharged a pistol at him,
and he fell, although unhurt, and
the thieves proceeded safely to the
next post, where one Sill, who had
been a soldier under Cromwell, stood
sentinel, but he offered no opposition, and they acordingly passed the
drawbridge.
"Horses were waiting from them
at St. Catherine's Gate, and as they
ran that way along the Tower
'Stop the rogues,' by which they
passed on unsuspected till Captain
Beckman overtook them. At his
head Blood fired another pistol, but
missed him, and was seized.    Under
the cloak of this daring vilain was
found the crown, and, although he
saw himself a prisoner, he had yet
the impudence to struggle for his
prey, and when it was finally wrested from him, said: 'It was a gallant
attempt, however unsuccessful; it
was for a crown.'
"Parrot, who had formerly served
under General Harrison, was also
taken; but Hunt, Blood's son-in-law,
reached his horse and rode off. as
did two other of the thieves, but he
was soon afterwards stopped and
likewise committed to custody.
"In this struggle and confusion
the great pearl, a large diamond,
and smaller stones were lost from
the crown; but the two former and
some of the latter were afterwirds
found, and restored; and the B.illas
ruby, broken off the sceptre, being
found In Parrots pocket, nothing
considerable was eventually missing.
"As soon as the prisoners were
secured young Edwards hastened to
Sir Gilbert Talbot, who was then
master and treasurer of the jewel-
house, and gave him an acount of
the transations. Sir Gioert instantly went to the king and acquainted
his majesty with it; and his majesty
commanded him to proceed forth witli
to the Tower to see how matters
stood, to take the examination of
Blood, and the others, and to return
and report it to him. Sir Gilbeit
accordingly went; but the king in
the meantime was persuaded by
some one about him to hear the
examination himself, and the prisoners were in consequence sent for
to Whitehall, a circumstances which
is supposed to have saved these daring wretches from the gallows."
And now comes the astoundin<-
part of the story. Not only did
King Charles pardon Blood, but gave
him a grant of land in Ireland worth
five hundred pounds yearly. The
only recognition of the services of
Talbot Edwards and his son was a
grant of three hundred pounds,
which they had to sell for half that
amount through the difficulty of obtaining payment 'through the crown.
Why Blood was so treated may never
be known, but there are grave suspicions that King Charles would not
have been averse to sharing the
spoils with the thief had the latter
succeeded in escaping with and selling the booty.
Blood remained a notorious character the rest ot,1 his days, and was
financially ruined by the Duke of
Westminster, who suel him for libel
and recovered ten thousand pounds
damages.
Blood died on August 24, 1680,
and was buried in New Chapel yard,
Westminster, who sued him for libel
the rumors that the notorious jewel
thief was not dead that the body
was exhumed and . positive proof
given of the man's death.

Taylor,    Accused    of   Murder    Noni
Vancouver, Will Have to An-
swer lo Charge
Taylor, accused of the murder ol
Eli McCutcheon on Hastings Beach,
near Vancouver, has been committed for trial.
McCutcheon, Fitzsimmons and a
half-breed woman known as Kitty,
representing herself to be Fitzsim-
nions' wife, started late last Friday
night to visit a shack owned by Joe
Turner, near Barnet, On the way
they called on "Dad" Taylor, living
in a scow house on Hustings Beach
aboul two miles from Turner's.
There they stopped to talk with the
old man before resuming their jour-
ni'y. Ell and Fitzsimmons lay down
nn a bed after they had been there
a short lime. They remained aboul
an hour and a half, when the old
111:111 ordered McCutoheon io leave
the house. McCutcheon reached for
his hat lo comply with the demand,
bul was evidently too slow, for Taylor picked up an old shotgun and,
it is alleged, discharged it at him.
The bullets caught Eli In the right
leg, while the flame from the gun
set fire to his clothing. With a loud
cry the injured man called for Kitty
to put out the fire. She did so, and
McCutcheon sank to the floor. Believing him to be dead, Kitty called
to her husband to get out, and they
left immediately, starting for Turner's house, where they spent the
night.
In the morning Taylor notified the
police force of the city of Vancouver
of the shooting. Detectives Scott
and Thompson and Provincial Constable Smith immediately left there
for the scene and arrested Taylor
there about 11 a. m.
McCutcheon came of a well known
Nanaimo family.

PROTECT  OUR  TRADE
In these days of competition it
will he necessary for Prince Rupert
to fight for its trade standing if it
is to become the great distributing
centre it is adapted to become. There
can be no denying the fact that thero
are going to be a few years in the
early stages of development here
when a strenuous and united fight
must be put up for certain important
lines of trade. The situation is
further complicated owing to the fact
that part of the trade which should
come naturally to Prince Rupert will
not be within reach until the G. T. P.
line is completed. This is the Fort
George and Tete Jaune Cache country
and all the territory tributary to
these points.
Another complication arises which
is difficult to solve and which may
work to the disadvantage of the
place in the earlier stages. This is
the delay in making Prince Rupert
a port of call for the large lines
from the Orient and from European
ports by way of the Mediterranean.
While there are these difficulties
In the way there is no reason why
steps should not be taken to overcome them and we believe the time
is ripe for the Board of Trade and
other bodies of a public character to
grapple with these so that the merchants of Prince Rupert may secure
the fullest measure of trade that
belongs to them.
Trade once diverted from here may
be difficult to regain. There should
be a readiness on the part of all
citizens of Prince Rupert to encour
age the building up of this city as
a great warehouse centre.
Vancouver is alive to the opportunities of the trade of the North
and is well aware of what Prince
Rupert will as a naval post accom
pllsh. Vancouver is preparing the
way to establish itself in the territory that should belong to Prince
Rupert before the trade is turned
this way after the difficulties mentioned are out of the way.
A systematic effort is being made
by Vancouver business men who
realize the vast posibilities of the
new interior to secure i..at trade and
interior (-0111111111111108 are being encouraged 10 take steps that will divert the trade to the southern centre.
As an instance of this the Quesnel
Board of Trade al a recent meeting
adopted a resolution along that line.
The Observer of that town gives (lie
resolution and the minutes of adoption as follows:
"The president requested Mr, Allison in take ihe' chair whereupon Mr.
Cameron moved, and Mr. Kepner seconded, that a letter be written to
the Vancouver Board of Trade ex-
pressing the gratification felt by this
board al the active steps they were
taking to secure Immediate railway
facilities between Vancouver nnd the
ii" them Interior; and stating thai
we look em Vancouver as our nat-
ural base of supplier, and that unless
communication with Vancouver wns
''lily Improved we should shortly
have to make our purchases through
Edmonton; and offering to furnish
in every way possible, Long before
en. direct line could be provided be-
twi i'ii Vnn.iein er and northern Cariboo there will be connection afforded
the Inner districl by way of the
<;. T. P. from Prince Rupert, With
n through railway and with trans-
Pacific liners culling here there is no
trade thai Prince Rupert will not he
able to provide to the territory mentioned.
local   information,   and   to   give   the
Vancouver board all possible help."
It behooves the citizens of Prince
Itupert to offset such a move as this
in  every  way possible.
It is none too early to begin the
work of agitating for Ihe trade communications needed here. The transportation companies will, it is safe to
say,' he only too glad to receive advice from local quarters and efforts
may then be made to secure to
Prince Rupert Its just share In the
trade of the country which means
practically a monoply of this northern portion.
In this connection there are matters of more local concern that re-
<l 11 ire investigation by the Board of
Trade looking to assisting in building up trade connections and which
might be adjusted with a little attention.
There is no time like the early
stages of a city to have these matters
righted before trade Hues become
established and a start should be
made at once.
A  WHEAT PORT
"Canada is in seventh place as a
wheat producer in the world. Russia produces nearly four times as
much, the United States nearly three
times as much and India more than
twice as much wheat as the Canadian
Northwest at the present time," says
the Edmonton Bulletin.
"But William Whyte, than whom
there are none better able to judge,
predicts that within fifteen years the
province of Saskatchewan alone will
be producing more wheat every yeai
than the whole of the United States
is now.
"When it is considered that there
are altogethe 143,285,412 acres of
land surveyed in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, that of this vast
area scarcely ten million acres ia
under wheat this year, and that the
wheat production will be not less
than 200,000,000 bushels, some Idea
of the possibilities even of the country already surveyed can be gained.
"And when to this is added the
knowledge that wheat production is
possible and feasible 700 miles to
the northwest of Edmonton, that the
part of Alberta not yet surveyed is
vastly greater than the part which is,
and that of the part which is surveyed and owned vastly less than 10
per cent is already under cultivation,
some glimmering of what all this
settlement means, and wliere It is
leading may be had if the imagination is equal to the emergency of
contemplating such staggering figures.
"Russia's total wheat production
is less than eight hundred million
bushels, but by working only the
land already settled upon the Canadian Northwest could produce more
wheat than Russia, and still have left
north and west of Edmonton land
enough, not yet settled upon or even
surveyed, to produce more wheat
than the United States does today.
"Every once in a while some finan-
ial misanthrope arises to warn the
world of the dangers of the western
boom, but us Jim Cornwall says, il
is great to be crazy. The man who
could fail to become enthusiastic
nhnut tlie possibilities of the Cana-
elhm west, has something the matter
with  his liver.
The figures given above by the
Bulletin are' of special interest to
residents of Prince Rupert. Situated
ns is this city, with n harbor than
iiiiiint !•" excelled and with n railway approach second to none on the
continent, a large proportion of this
grain must find its way tn the mar-
lie ts of the world through this port If
political I; aders v, :,l but- l'eep keep
hands off and a'low trade to flow this
way Instead of dlvortlng it to American ports by a reclp"ocity act.
the route of the G. T. P. near Tete
Jaune Cache, a wise choice has been
made. Kirkup is known from end
to end of the country. Years of
experience on the frontier have
taught him ahout all there is to
learn in this particular line of service. In the whole of his long career
before the public as the upholder of
law there has never been a whisper
that he was not absolutely straightforward. He has been the impersonation of honor and of realessness.
No advantage will be taken of the
wide powers voted him nor could
they be put in better hands.

is a prominent investor in the southern city, is spending a few weeks

is accompanied by Mrs. Stitt and
their daughter. Mrs. Stitt Is a sister
of Mrs. J. E. Merryfield and during
the stay in the city they will be
the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Merryfield.
Like many other visitors to the
place from the south, Mr. Stitt did
not expect to find conditions nearly
as promising as he Is now led to
believe them. He has become quite
enamored of Prince Rupert and is
very favorably impressed with the
opportunities for investment here.
He remarks upon the substantial
character of the work which is being carried out in the city and the
prospects for trade that are bound
to offer.

ADVANTAGE TO PORT
MOW  STEAMER  COMING
The C. P. R. steamer Princess
Mary, one ol the most modern vessels on the coast will make her
first call to this port on Thursday.
She is leaving Vancouver tonight for
Skagway on her first trip in this
service ands wil call here. The Princess Mary, while not as large as the
Princes Victoria or the Princess
Charlotte, has all the latest touches
that the C. P. R. has given to their
coasting steamers, being one of the
lntest to be built for the company.
In point of nccomniodation the
Princess Mary can take care of about
■as many as the Princess May. Her
dining saloon nnd general day accommodations, however, are larger
than that vessel, she having been fitted up for the most service.
The vessel will be visited by many
in the city on her arrival here.
Through the eforts of the local
agent of the Alaska Steamship Company, J. II. Rogers, who is ever alive
not only to the interests of his company but is also on the alert to
advance the fame of Prince Rupert
as a place for investment, the Spokane wns to have made this place n
port of cnll on her regular excursion to the north. The wrecking of
I lini steamer, which was to have
called on that very trip for the first
time, has upset the plans.
The Queen is lo take the pluce of
the Spokane and it^is probable she
will make this a port of call as had
been intended in the case of the Spokane.
George Little of Kltsumkalum was
a visitor to tbe city last week.
*    *    *
Among the arrivals on the Princess
May yesterday on the way north was
Captain Jones of the marine and fisheries department. He is making a
trip to Skagway and back as a holi-
lay. Captain Jones made a tour
about the city and was amazed at
the amount of work thnt wns being
done on the streets and the commendable appearance of tlie buildings.

Sealing Agreement I
*****.
i>*********************************** * *******
An agreement has been reached in
the International Fur Seal Conference which promises to settle that
troublesome problem and remove the
last serious question between Canada and the United States. By the
agreement, Canada, the United
Stntes, Russia and Japan bind themselves to cease pelagic or open sea
sealing in the North Pacifis for a
term of fifteen years, with the object of allowing the seal herds to
increase and give seal skins again
the place they once had in the ful
markets of tlie world. A special interest attaches to this long standing
dispute in view of the fact that
Prince Rupert numbers among its
citizens one who took an active part
in tlie earlier negotiations relative
to the settlement of the vexed question. This is Fred Peters, K. C, who
was counsel for Canada In the old
arbitration   proceedings.
■   Compensation for Canada
Canada, as the only country in
the agreement which owns no seal
rookeries, has now been able to secure favorable terms of compensation for desisting from pelagic sealing, and the revenue from this
source is expected to amount before
long to several hundred thousand
dollars a year. By the ngreement,
Canada is to receive $200,000 cash
advance from the United States, this
to be used as the Dominion government sees fit, hut probably in part
as a compensation to owners of
British Columbia sealing vessels.
The amount will be repaid out of
the sales of the seal skins received
from the United States government.
The United States gives Cannda nnd
Jnpan 30 per cent of her catch
annually on the Pribyloff Islands,
or 13 per cent each. Russia
gives Canada and Japan 30 per
cent of her catch on Commander
Islands of which Canada gets 10
and Japan 20 per cent. Japan gives
Canada 15 per cent of the catch on
her rookeries on Robben Island. The
rookeries in each case are now owned and operated by the government
of the three respective nations.
The catch of fur seals on the
Pribyloff Islands from 1868 to 1908
amounted to 2,494,176, valued in
London at $36,850,097. The fur
senls taken in the same period In
the open sea were 930,313, valued
as sold by the owners at $11,251,788.
The negotiations, which have
reached a successful issue, have lasted over six weeks, and were exceedingly difficult. The head of the
Canadian delegation, of course, was
Ambassador Bryce, and the negotiations were carried on in the name
of Great Britain. Air. Joseph Pope,
under secretary of state for external
affairs, was present as' the Canadian
diplomat. He had with him Mr.
James Macoun, of the department
of the interior, and Mr. W. A. Found,
superintendent of fisheries. Mr. Pope
and Mr. Macoun have had notable
previous experience in connection
with the seal controversy, both having participated in Ihe making of
the Treaty of Paris in 1893. Mr.
Macount has also spent four seasons
in ihe sealing grounds themselves,
anil his first hand knowledge gained
on various public missions was of
great value in the present negotiations. Tin.. Importance of the matter to the other nations was shown
by ihe presence at the conferences
ul' Mr. Nagel, secretary ol commerce
anil labor lor the United States, and
the Japanese and Russian Ambassadors to Washington, together with
an array of experts for each country,
All tour [unions to ihe treaty have
still to .submit the lernis to their
respective governments for ratification, hen ii is expected there "ill he'
no difficulty on ihis score.
A Long Standing Dispute
The sealing dispute, which now
seems nearer or permanent settlement than ever before, is one of
long standing. Tlie principal sources
of soul skins are in the North l'a
ciflc, ihough some are taken along
tlie const of South America in the
SoutIi Pacific. Those in tlie north
roam along the coast from California
ami Japan to tlie Bering Sea, tlie
islands of the later, where they arrive in the spring, being the scene
of the rookeries. Canadian vessels,
especially on the Britisii Columbia
const, hnve long ben engaged In
sealing, though Canada has never
owned a rookery of her own.
Canadian   Vessels   Seized
For mnny years tlie sealing on the
Priblyoff Islands was leased by the
United States to the Alaska Commer-
e-iu] Company, a large corporation
which dominated the sealskin business of the world and made it as
uncomfortable us possible for anyone else on sealing bent. Therefore
ii came about in LSSO that British
vessels  which  had  hitherto had  the
seal in the territorial waters of Bering Sea were suddenly seized. The
schooner Thornton of British Columbia was arrested 70 miles from the
nearest land, libelled, and the master and mate imprisoned and fined.
Other vessels met with the same
fate, and such hot messages were Interchanged between the Britisii and
United States governments that war
was for a time thought possible. Diplomacy prevailed, however, and a
treaty and convention was signed
at Washington in April, 1S92. The
Paris tribunal followed in 18 93, and
made the biggest step for a peaceful
and businesslike adjustment of the
difficutly up to that time considered
possible.
The Treaty of Paris
At that tribunal Canada was fully
represented, though, of course, acting through British diplomatic
channels. The United States claimed that the Bering Sea was a closed
sea and that no vessels but their
otvn had any right there for any purpose; they also claimed property
right in seals no matter wliere taken,
on the ground that they were born
on the Pribyloff Islands. The arbitrators of the tribunal decided
against the United States on-all of
these contentions, but in order to
preserve the seals, Great Britain
agreed to certain regulations, which
are still in force. Chief among these
is the fact that Canada has no right
to take seals within 60 miles of the
Pribyloff Islands.
Verged on Piracy
During these negotiations there
were some heated passages between
the United States and Great Britain.
The former, zealous for the welfare
of her commercial interests, and in
no position to throw stones at any
want of conservation in other countries, always put seal protection on
high economic and legal ground. For
example, Mr. Blaine, in 1890, writing to Sir Julian Pauncefote, the
British ambassador, declared pelagic
sealing to be immoral, and said:
"One step beyond that which her
majesty's government has taken in
this contention and piracy finds its
justification.
A Long Agitation
Immediately after the treaty of
189,'!, the United States began an
agitation in the press and in diplomatic circles to bring about the end
of pelagic sealing. It should be explained that part of the time the
seals loaf around the rocks of the
islands, but at other times they are
swimming out in the sea in search
of food, which consists chiefly of
squid. It was found that their chief
feeding ground was a considerable
distance from the islands, so that
vessels engaged in pelagic senllng
had a good chance at the game.
The destructiveness of pelagic sealing
is from the fact that many females
were taken, they being indistinguishable from the males in the water.
On the other hand, when taking
seals on the islands, sealers are careful to spare the females In the interests of the future of the species.
It was soon found that those engaged in pelagic sealing were doing
pretty well, especially the Japs, with
their subsidized vessels. Agitation
continued, until in 1S90-7 commissioners representing Canada and the
United Stntes investigated (lie con-
dltions in ilie Bering Sen, and In
189$ they 'net nt Washington. 'l":e
result of that meeting was that the
American contention as to the failure
ni' tin' preceding regulations wns
shown to he' without foundation. The
agitation, however, continued, nnd it
was urn until 1008 Unit Canada
would agree again to even diseuss
tin' matter of snipping pelagic sealing. An effort in settlement was
made' ley the joini high commission
in 1898, lent sealing fulled then, as
did everything else.

The boundary of the Rocky Mountain forest reserve has now been located from the international boundary northward to a point due west
of Laconibe. This was accomplished
last summer (1910) by two parties
sent out by the Dominion forest service. One of these, under G. H.
Edgecomb, B.Sc, B.Sc.F., started at
Calgary and worked southwards,
while the other, under P. Z. Caver-
hill, B.Sc, worked northward from
the same starting point. The full
report of these gentlemen has just
been published.
During the coining summer (1911)
it is epectedx that the rest of the
eastern boundary of the reserve will
(about forty or fifty miles north of
the latitude of Edmonton).
Object of the Resen-e
The primary aim in preserving the
forests of this area is to provide a
supply of timber easily accessible to
the dwellers on the prairie. But there
are other things, scarcely, if at all,
les important, to be attended to. To
users of water for Irrigation and
for the generation of power It is important, to have an even flow
throughout the year, and the efect
of forests along streams, and especially at their headwaters, in thus
regulating stream - flow is well
known. Moreover, in order to keep
up the level of the water in the soil
throughout the prairie regions Ihe
level of the rivers must be maintained, and the flow not allowed to
decrease to a mere dribble in tlie
slimmer time. In the maintaining of
this valnme of water in the rivers
the forests have an Important effect.
The Land Within (be Reserve.
In deciding as to what land to include in the reserve, the chief question asked has been, "Is it suitable
for farming?" If it is, the rule has
been to leave it out; if not so suitable, to include it on the reserve.
The altitude, or height above the
sea level, has also been an important
consideration.
The boundary fixed by the order-
in-council setting aside the reserve
was found largely unsuitable. It
took in, to a great degree, only the
mountainous country, much of it
above the tree line, and the rest of
it unsuited—at any rate for many
years—for timber production. Many
valleys were found to be quite suitable for grazing.
Forest Fires in  the  Reserve •
The reserve has suffered to a very
great degree from fire. Of about
one hundred and forty miles run by
the "southern" party south along the
eastern boundary of the reserve, mature virgin timber was encountered
only in a small tract of some twelve
consecutive miles, the dry standing
sticks, windfalls and rocky exposures
telling the tale. Of the part covered
by the "northern" party, eighty per
cent had been burned over within
the past fifty years (sixty per cent of
this area within the last twenty-five
years).
The  Timber  on  the  Reserve
The frequent and disastrous fires
account for the type of timber found
over much of the reserve. Of an
area of eight hundred square miles
covered by the "southern" party, the
land was distributed as follows: Timber, 9 per cent; spruce and pine
"poles" (a tree of "pole" size is from
four to twelve inches in diameter, 31
per cent; pine and poplar, 26 per
cent; poplar, 10 per cent; open grazing land, 14 per cent; bare rock, 10
per cent. The pine (the "lodgepole"
pine found on the reserve is closely
related to the jack pine found so
often on burned-over districts in the
east) and the poplar are both trees
that spring up quickly after fires
and by their rapid growth overtop
other trees—for a time, at least. As
can be seen from the above table, a
large proportion of the country is
covered with these trees, either alone
or growing together, and the small
tize of other timber points to the
fire having run over this, too, at no
very distant period. About seventy-
five per cent of the country covered
by the "northern" party is covered
by forests of this lodgepole pine—a
silent evidence of what has happened
o this region in the past.
Measurements taken by the "southern" party indicate that in that region (south of Calgary) the lodgepole pine required thirty years to
reach a diameter of five inches and
sixty years lo grow to nine inches
in diameter. Tlie spruce (Engel-
iiiann) anil red (or Douglas) fir
took, respectively, ninety and one
hundred   and    ten   years   to   reach
twelve inches in diameter,

Many Mills in Washington Will  Re-

Account of Low Price
Washington red cedar shingles
were quoted lower last week than at
any time in five years, or since the
early part of 1906.
A few stars have sold as low as
$1.35 although $1.40 is held to be
the price. Clears were held at about
$1.70. That shingles should be so
cheap at a time when the supply is
as light ns at present surprises manufacturers and wholesalers. Stocks at
the Minnesota transfer are light, aggregating only about 400 carloads.
This is one of the lightest stocks ever
held at that point. Often the transfer stock has run as high as 1,500
carloads and has been as high as
2,000 enrs.
Stocks at the mills on the coast
are also said to be light. One manufacturer stated yesterday that there
are less than 800 cars of shingles
available  for  shipment.

POPULATION GAIN
Cencus of England and Wales  Shows
Increase in the Number of
Residents
Some  of  the  Figures  in  the  Latest
Count in Centres of the
Old Land
Official figures of the census of
England and Wales are given In an
exhaustive reporte printed in the
London Times and show some remarkably interesting particulars regarding the population of those two
countries.
Following is the report in full:
The first indication of the figures
of the recent census was given in
the parliamentary papers yesterday
in the form of a printed reply by
Mr. Burns to a question by Dr. Addison. The figures given are subject
to correction and are the provisional
number derived from summaries
furnished to the registrar-general by
the local registration officers. They
concern only England and Wales.
The outstanding feature is the increase over 1901 of nearly 11 per
cent in the general population, which
as shown in the following table is
now 36,075,269:
England and Wales—(1901) 32-
527,4S3; (1911) 36,075,209; an increase of 10.91 per cent.
Administrative counties— (1901)
22,543,995; (1911) 25,204,009; increase of 11.80 per cent.
County Boroughs (75) — (1901)
10,9S3,S4S; (1911) 10,871,260; increase of 8.89 per cent.
The return shows in detail the
populations of the administrative
counties and the county boroughs,
with the rate of increase over 1901;
it shows also the populations of the
metropolitan boroughs, the administrative County of London, of the
Outer Ring, and of Greater London.
From the latter the following table
is of special interest:
City of London—(1901) 26,923;
I 1911) 19,657; decrease of 26.99 pel'
cent.
Administrative County of London
— (1901) 4,530,267; (1911) 4,522-
961; decreaso of .29 per cent.
Oiner Ring—(1901) 2,045,135;
(1911) 2,703,002; Increase of 33.49
per ceuI.
Greater London—(1901) 6,581,-
402; (1911) 7,252,963; Increase of
10.20 per cent.
Greaer London it should be noted,
corresponds with the districts of the
city of London police and the metropolitan police. The Outer Ring is
that portion of Greater London
which lies outside the county of London.
From an analysis of the figures
it would appear that all the English
counties show an increase in population except Cumberland, Westmorland and West Suffolk. Out of the
12 Welsh counties seven show an in
crease and five—Cardiganshire, Carnarvonshire, Merionethshire— Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire—show
a decrease.
In the county boroughs the great
majority show an increase, but there

the Metropolitan Borough those
which have increased may be compared with those which have decreased as follows:

FRUIT GROWING
Commission    Appointed    to    Inquire
Into the Whole Horticultural
Question
The minister of agriculture has
appointed a commission, headed by
J. A. Ruddick, dairy and cold storage commission, to conduct an inquiry into the fruit growing Industry
of Canada. The commission will report upon the following:
"Area and extent of land adapted
to fruit growing in various provinces.
"Varieties of fruits which have
been found to be most profitable and
successful in several provinces or
subdivisions of sane.
"General trend of Industry towards
concentrating production of large
quantities of standard varieties.
"Difficulties which are likely to
be encountered.
".Methods of production.
"Facilities for distribution and
marketing.
"Possibilities of over-production."
RICH  FIND IX  WHALE
A rich find of anibergis was made
in a sperm whale taken by one of
the whaling steamers of the Canadian Northern Pacific Fisheries Co.
recently off the west coast of Vancouver Island, and the steamer Petriana of the whaling company arrived
at Victoria with a small packing case
locked in the captain's room which
held this valuable find, worth at
least $150,000, more than her total
cargo and oil and fertilizer many
times over. The find was taken from
a sperm whale, one of four of these
more valuable mammals than the
usual humpback or sulphur bottom
whales brought to the coast stations.
When the whale was hauled to the
flensing platform and the workmen
commenced to cut up the carcase,
they disclosed the rich deposit and
there was publlation at the station.
Word was sent to the head office In
Victoria and preliminary tests made
showed that It was beyond doubt
the  rich  substance  which   has  been

found   so   rarely  and   is   so  eagerly
sought by whalers.
Ambergris Is a solid, opoque, ish-
e'olored Inflammable substance, variegated like marble, remarkably
light, rugged on the surface and
when heated has a fragrant odor. It
Is highly valued as a material in
the manufacture of the highest grade
of perfumes and is worth much more
than its weight in gold. At a low
valuation it is said to be worth over
$500 per pound. Various opinions
have been entertained as to its origin,
but It is well ascertained that it Is
a morbid secretion In the Intestines
of the sperm whale, being found in
the majority of cases in which these
fortunate finds have been made on
the surface of the water in areas frequented by sperm whales. It has
been found in masses of from sixty
pounds to about two-hundred, and
the piece brought to Victoria on the
steamer Petriana, taken by one of
the local steam whalers, is said to be
one of the largest finds, if not the
largest, ever recorded.

SPOKE BITTER WORDS
(Continued From Page One.)
Aid. Newton demanded a ruling
from the mayor as to whether Aid.
Hilditch be allowed to describe him
as "that cur."
His worship said he felt that the
use of the expression was not in order
and Aid. Hllditch should withdraw
the words.
Aid. Hilditch said he would when
Aid. Newton withdrew his malicious
falsehoods. He would not care if
Aid. Newton believed what he said.
He, however, knew what he was saying to be false.
His worship, as chairman of the
committee, felt that the objectionable expression should be withdrawn.
Aid. Hilditch said he would withdraw the expression, but he did it
reluctantly.
Aid. Newton, proceeding, called attention to the fact that Aid. Hilditch
bad preemptorily adjourned the license commissioners meeting. In the
evening he came down and found the
commissioners here with Mr. ePters,
the city solicitor, and Mr. Carss, who
represented J. A. Smith's application
in the council room.
Further Corrections
Aid. Hilditch, on a question of
privilege, took exception to the state
ment of Aid. Newton that he preemptorily dismissed the board. He
requested an adjournment until the
licenses could be looked into. In the
evening he and Aid. Smith did not
go into the matter. It was left to
the solicitor to go into it in another
room.
Aid. Smith bore out this statement.
Aid Newton, proceeding, contended
that at the night sitting the question was taken up who should have
the licenses. In view of the fact
that a relative of Aid. Smith was
concerned in the app'icatlon it was
not right. Aid. Smith got off "his
little spiel" about not taking part
at the next day's sitting.
The question was whether they
were going to stand by and see this
done. This was the time to "nip
this kind of work in the bud." He
was going to at least 'screen his own
skirts."
He moved the six months' hoist
but on explanation from the chair as
to the order altered the motion to
one that the committee rise.
Aid. Kerr said that he did not
want to mix up with the license com
missioners. He was not concerned
in any frameup. He wanted to see
fair play for a man. He did not vote
as Aid. Newton had done a few
months ago, to contribute funds to
appeal a case.
Aid. Newton said he only voted
for this in order to safeguard the
license board of this city. He did not
defend the board's action.
Corroboration
Aid. Douglas in rising said he corroborated Aid. Newton. As to the
bottle licenses, acording to the comments on the streets, this was a disgrace and the general opinion was
"that not all the waters of the Skeena
river would wash the stains away."
Aid. Clayton did not believe in
making law to accommodate itself
to crime. It would lead to serious
trouble. He did not place this In
the category of crime but it was a
bad example. He did not believe in
suspending the license bylaw so soon
after its passage. The commission
had been given yvide power and this
should carry wide responsibilty. He
had objections to issue the wholesale licenses.
The motion that the committee
rise was lost, Aids. Newton, Douglas
and Clayton voting for it, with Aids.
Morrissey and Kirkpatrick absent.
The amendment was carried and
the bylaw reported and put through
its third reading.
 o	
HACK  FROM TRIP
Ev-Ald. Lynch Is Well Satisfied With
the  Outlook  in  the
Interior
Ex-Aid. Lynch is back from a trip
into the interior of the province. He
went as far as Aldermere and with
an experienced eye he sized up the
whole situation. He returns to Prince
Rupert better satisfied than ever
with the outlook. There are splendid opportunities, he thinks, In the
country covered by the G. T. P. as
well as Prince Rupert Itself.
He is convinced from he saw that
there is not likely to be any delay
in the completion of the road now
and 1913 should see the line all
through.
About Hazelton he epects to see a
good mining camp and in the Kit-
suinkaluni and adjoining valleys
there is every evidence that fruit culture will be a prominent industry.
Ranching farther inland will be followed and the country generally is
most promising.
HONES IX DIKING ROOMS
Subject  of Closing  Them  Came  Before the City Council Last
Night
The subject of boxes in dining
rooms came before the city council
last evening in a letter from Chief
Vickers which in turn was sent on to
the council to see whether the bylaw
would be passed dealing with it.
Aid. Clayton felt that while the
chief was correct in this yet there
were other menaces to public morality that were quite as great as this
and might receive attention. He referred to gambling dens. He had
never heard any complaint about the
boxes, but it might be well to do
away with them.
Aid. Douglas wanted to know why
the gambling was not stopped. Why
had there been no arrests.
His worship said that the board of
police commissioners had urged from
time to time to see that all kinds of
gambling should be stopped. The
chief reported that those who were
engaged in it were out of town.
Sometimes it was very difficult to
secure evidence to convict. It was
often more easy to order these people out of town. There were, of
course, many who had criticisms to
offer but few who would assist the
police in the giving of information.
Aid. Douglas wanted to know if
the money voted by the council was
being used to secure evidence.
His worship said some of it was.
His  worship wanted  to know  what
the council wished to do.
It was suggested that perhaps a
bylaw might be passed.
Aid. Hilditch thought the matter
could be left to the commissioners.
It was finally decided to lay this
over for a week.
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Kirkpatrick
went south yesterday morning. Mrs.
Kirkpatrick has not been well for
some months and will spend some
time in Victoria.

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening into the body there
Ib a   Malleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed in such Joints.    They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus stove  bolts  and  stove  putty.    It's
important to  every  one  using  or  bmlng
a range.
