CHANGES ARE TO BE MADE
IN FISHERIES REGULATIONS
Better Protection is to be Given the Canadian Fishing Grounds on the
Pacific by the new Ministry at Ottawa—New Vessels to be
Built for the Service on This Coast-Cannery Rules
Will be Modified in Some Respects.
Ottawa, Feb. 6.—Upon H. S. Clements, member for Comox-Atliu,
moving for the production of papers
and correspondence in relation to
the patrol and fisheries protection
service on the Pacific coast in the
House today, there followed loud
complaint by H. H. Stevens, of Vancouver, and G. H. Barnard, of Victoria, and Frank Shepard of Nanal-
mo, regarding the manner in which
the Americans are poaching on Canadian  fishing  grounds.
This  brought forth  an  important
statement from Hon. J. D. Hazcn,
minister of marine and fisheries to
the effect that the government is
taking steps to meet the situation.
These are that the obsolete protection boats Kestrel and Restless are
to be sold. Three new vessels are
to be procured, two for protection,
and one for patrol service. Appropriations of $270,000 for the latter
in estimates may be ready this year.
One of the protection vessels is
to be purchased. The other will be
built   on   the   Pacific  coast   if   possi
ble. Tlie minister criticised the
manner of granting fishing licenses.
These in future are not to be granted to men engaged in mercantile
pursuits as formerly and then farmed out for large sums, but may be
auctioned.
The regulation whereby the fishermen are at the mercy of canneries in that the latter only take what
fish they want irrespective of the
fisherman's catch is a practice to be
abolished.
SUFFER HEAVY LOSS
Imperial Troops in China Lose 1500 at
Chuihow Yesterday.
The  Revolutionists   (lain    the  Day,
Killing And Capturing the
Opposing Forces
San Francisco, Feb. 6.—There
were 1,500 Imperial troops killed at
Chuichow yesterday, according to a
message received by the Chinese
paper here. There were BOO captured.

CROP REPORT
Saskatchewan  Hud a Good Yield of
Wheat Last Year
Regina, Feb. 6.—The Saskatchewan government crop report, issued
last night, places the yield at 97,-
000,000 bushels of wheat, outdistancing that of both Minnesota,
Nortli and Soutli Dakotas. It is estimated that 20,000,000 bushels are
still under snow. The total grain
production of the province is 212,-
000,000  bushels.
PUBLICITY  WORK
Council of   ftoard of Trade Decide to
Raise a Very Modest Sum for
That Purpose.
No Elaborate Scheme of Advertising
Will He Carried! Out at the
Present Time
The Council of the Board of Trade
met last night in the police court
room for the purpose of striking
committees and transacting other
business. The new president, F. II.
Mobley, presided, , - - '
Among the most Important business to come up was ihe consideration of the report of the special committee dealing with a publicity
scheme. The report was against the
proposition of attempting to raise a
large fund for this purpose al this
time. It was felt however that there
was ft necessity for a small sum to
be devoted towards the printing Of a
Buiall publication giving facts concerning the city which would be sent
out to those who sought Information,
It was decided to raise the sum of
$200 by subscription throughout the
city for that purpose.
It was also decided to affiliate
with the International Congress of
the Boards of Trade, which meets in
Boston on September 12, the first
occasion in which the meeting has
been held In America. The membership fee is $10, and it was felt that
advantages would be derived to that
extent by joining the Congress.

QUALIFICATION FOR VOTERS
Rebate Resulted in Decision Against
Educational Test in the Matter
At Mclntyre hall last evening,
representatives from the debating
societies of the Baptist, Anglican and
Presbyterian churches met and debated the subject: "Resolved, That
There Should Be An Educational
Qualification For Voters." Rev. Mr.
Collison presided.
Messrs. Gill, Carss and McCorkin-
dale upheld the affirmative, and
Messrs. Simpson, Mcintosh and Fulton  the  negative.
The negative won on the merits of
the debate.
A large crowd attended, and much
enthusiasm was taken in the discussion.
INSIDE PROPERTY OUICKLY
BOUGHT UP IN THE CITY
Local Syndicates Active in Securing any Lots that are Offered for Sale
in Business Section of Prince Rupert-Some of the Recent
Transactions Shows that Real Estate is Maintaining Good Prices Here.
That Prince Rupert real estate' is
steadily advancing in value is proved by the fact that it is found next
to impossible to get inside property
at the present time.
Aii instance of this was afforded
yesterday when two lots, five and
six, block twenty, on Second avenue,
were snapped up almost as soon as
put on the market at $23,000. They
yere purchased by a strong local
syndicate
There is a very healthy tone in
real   estate   here   which   is   a   better
Indication than even quick turns.
Owners show a tendency to hold on
to lots being fearful that if they part
With them it may be impossible ro
replace them with good buys.
The result is that practically all
the lots in section one are off the
market, not because they are not
many hungry buyers, as is evidenced
whenever a lot is put on the market,
but because the owners are all well
satisfied to remain with the holdings,
feeling assured that the results will]
justify the holding of them.
FOUND  GUILTY
l)i.   Hazzard,   the   "Starvation   Doctor," Convicted of Manslaughter
Port Orchard, Feb. 6.—Dr. Haz-
*/ard was found guilty of manslaughter in connection with the deatli of
the rich English woman, Miss Williamson, by starvation. An appeal
will be taken to tlie supreme court.
ISOLATION   HOSPITAL
Difficulty is Found in Locating This
Necessary Building
A location for the isolation hospital has not yet geen found. Various
sites have been suggested, but they
all have obstacles in the way. The
location over Hays Creek is open to
objection from the standpoint that
the city has not a clear title to the
land.
Other locations suggested are too
near residences, or are open ro other
serious obstacles.
As the matter now stands, the
hospital board will be approached to
see if .the isolation hospital cannot
be placed on the general hospital
grounds.

Public Works Committee Urge that Third and
Second Avenues Near McBride Street
Should be Completed Without
Unnecessary Delay
The necessity for completing Second and Third avenues near McBrlde
.street has been brought very strongly home to the council by members
of the public works committee. Aid.
Maitland is especially insistent that
this should be done as lie contends
that owners of lots in that part of
the city have been Inconvenienced
long enough.      ■ -	
When the board of works recommended tlie removal of the rock
crusher to Acropolis hill, Aid. Morrlssey said thai while the committee
had reported on that at tlie time
t.iere was really no necessity for this
ai Acropolis hill for some time. He
submitted a report recommending
thai ilie grading of Sixth avenue lie
proceeded with'. He recommended
putting Hie rock crushed there.
An oiler I'riini an absentee, Mr.
Mil.eod, of Vancouver, wns presented by which he agreed to dump t In-
rock Into the rock crusher at the
corner of Second avenue and Fifth
street.
Aid. .Morrlssey was not in favor
of laking this latter offer unless the
owner would not only deliver I lie
rock into the crusher, but also pay
for the rock being delivered on the
streets.
Considerable discussion followed,
Mr. Angle being heard also on behalf of the Sl^th avenue grading.
Aid. Maitland said the city had
to have rock to finish Third avenue
near McBrlde street. It was a shame
to have that part longer In the shape
is now  was.
Tlie discussion which moved along
very free nnd easy in character, was
made lively by a little tilt in which
Aid. Douglas turned sharply upon
Aid.   Morrlssey.
Tlie question of allowing tlie owner of the Jot. on the corner of Second avenue and Fifth streel in use
the crusher for dumping rock into
was  under discussion. Aid.  Mor-
rissey did not believe in giving any
outsider special privileges. He
thought ihe owner of the lot should
also deliver tin; crushed rock on
the streets wherever designated.
The case of the clearing of the
lots lasi year where Mr. Ashland
and Mr. Dunn were allowed lo deliver the rock to Ihe crushed only
was cited.
Aid.   Morrlssey   said   he   believed
that  tlie clearing of  Hie  lots of  Mr
I Ashland   and   Mr.   Dunn   was   done
J more from a spirit of friendship than
«itli regard to strict business I'm- the
city.
This broughl Aid. Douglas to attention and in- w anted to know why
Aid. Morrlssey allowed it to go
I through when he was a member of
. he  board of works committee.
All. jyiorrlssey contended that lie
was away at Ihe time, but Aid. Douglas wanted to know why he did nol
act   when  he  came   back.
Aid. Douglas said that lie repudiated all the statements made by
Aid. Morrlssey. He reflected upon
the public works committee. Then
turning upon Aid. Morrlssey, tlie
keeper of the treasures addressed
him thus, "You're a smart man;
you're a live wire."
It was finally agreed on motion of
Aid. Bullock-Webster that Mr. Mc-
Leod should be Informed that li^
rock would be taken If lie delivered
it In tlie crupher and then deposited
it also  on  the  streets  after  it  Were
crushed.
Earl Grey is one of Canada's best
friends. In his Guildhall speech on
the occasion of his receiving the
freedom of the city of London, he
made an inspiring address. The incident was a noteworthy one. The
only reason why the noble Earl
should have been singled out fur tlie
i distinction conferred upon him was
I the' fact that he had recently completed a very successful term in tin
I oice of Governor-General. He liini-
| self recognized this for he said of
the honor, "If bestowed directly on
myself alone, it. is also bestowed on
the whole Dominion which is one day
destined to be tlie controlling portion of this great Empire." In saying that there is no distinction between political parties in Canada In
respect to loyalty to the Crown and
tlie Empire, Earl Grey gave expression to one of the most important
facts bearing upon the future status
of the Dominini. We may differ on
details of policy, but among Conservatives, Liberals and Nationalists
there is one common sentlmenl of attachment to the Union Jack and all
it  Implies, says the Colonist.
Earl Grey appreciates the fact that
the hour is rapidly approaching
when "partnership between equals''
to use Lord Milner's phrase, inu>i
find expression in something more
denite than assurances of good will,
hut he is too wise a statesman to
seek to force results, which will come
of themselves if we only direct our
patriotism toward ihe common object nl promoting Imperial solidarity.
Tlie   utterances   of     our     formi
Governor-General since   his    return
home will recall to the older gem i
atlon   oi'  Canadians   thpse   of   Lord
Dufferin after Ihe completion of hi
term or offh e     Lord Dufferin   i
a   conspicuo i dj    sin cessful    	
after le.-n Ins Canada, bul the exlgen
eles of    ti ailed for his presem e
at foreign courts. We know we
speak fur Canadians when we expre -
ihe hope that Lord Grey will see
his an; clear to ai Ih e partii Ipai i
in the politics of the United Kingdom. It Is necessary thai the British government should be represent
ed abroad by the besl men available
but   it   is   equally   inipnrlani   thai   al
ibis lime the statesmen who are
dealing with Imperial problems ai
home, should be fitted by observation and experience to aslsl In empire-building.

(It TI,(H>l\   IS GOOD
The prospects for the coming
summer here are excellent. The fact
thai real estate continues to remain
as firm as l| is gives a double assurance as   to  the  future.
Tlie coming spring is expected lo
see a very large programme of build-*
iiig in tin- city. Those engaged . in
the building trades are all preparing
fur such a condition of things, and
tin- prospects all point lo them being
correcl   in  their estimates.
ALLAYING FEARS
Mayor Newton is busily engaged
now allaying fears as to the financial situation of the city — fears
which his own words aroused in the
first instance. While it is true that
the mayor attempted to show that
there might be no trouble, yet, as
Aid. .Montgomery reminded him, the
air of mystery with .which he surrounded his remarks on the subject
was not the best calculated to reassure the public. It seems to us
that lie said too much or said too
little.
Human nature is Inquisitive, and
the mayor's words were suggestive
ui something, if they did not in
themselves convey any great danger.
For that reason we think he would
have been acting wiser had he kept
his own counsel in Hie matter, if he
was not at liberty to give as full information as the public would naturally demand.
by collecting his $22,500 a year as
rst lord of the treasury.
A similar amount leaves Lloyd
George free from personal financial
worries, so that he can better-worry
about the financial affairs of the
thirty odd million other inhabitants
of Great Britain.
To  CHECK  TRIOR  TO  CANADA
Liberal   Lund     Laws     Proposed      to
Keeji Farmers on American
Soil
As a step toward checking American em'gration to Canada the Senate Committee on Public Lands has
reported .several measures greatly
lightening the conditions of homestead cniry in the northwest. It
has been pointed out that the drift
of emigration across cur northern
frontier was largely loitered by the
Canadian public land laws. The report by the committee favors a-general change In the land laws, making their requirements practically
I hose  obtaining across  tlie  border.
The most important proposal reduces the period of occupation by
the settler from five years to three
years. It is further provided that
instead of requiring a year-around
residence on his homestead, the settler hereafter may leave his farm
for six months of the year.
Oil lands by the bill are thrown
open to surface entry for agricultural purposes to the extent of about
18,000,000 acres. These lands are
located chief y in .Montana and California.
The Railway Commission having ruled that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway must con-   j

It costs jusi a liitle more than
a million dollars a year lo make the
British Cabinet mare go. The yearly
salaries drawn by the twenty members of the government reach $522,-
000, and, although that is far in ox-
cess of ihe yearly pay sheet of Hie
American cabinet, John Hull can con
gratulaie himself on having a bargain lot ui high class administrators.
Top dog in the British salary list
is Lord Aberdeen, lord lieutenant
of Ireland, who draws $100,0110 a
year. Bui lie lives in regal slate
and it cosis him much more than
that lo maintain his position.
A better bargain from ihe recipient's  point   of  view  Is  the  $5".	
received yearly by Lord Loreburn,
tlie lord chancellor, whose main duties are appointing magistrates for
the English counties.
Even less work is done by Saiiuel
Walker, lord chancellor of Ireland,
wlin draws $40,000 a year from the
British treasury.
Much has been made in the English paper of the supposed "Irishman's rise" which lias been given
in Winston Churchill, The position
nl'   home   secretary   which    he   hold,
carries  with  it  a  salary of  $25,	
ii yeai. whereas thai of secretary of
He admiralty, which he recently assumed, pays $22,750. Therefore,
sa: tho British papers, Winston
loses ihe difference.
They overlook Ihe fact that when
a year ago the salary of the home
secretary was raised from $10,000
a year to $25,"mi a year, Winston
expressly agreed that Hie rise was
not to apply so long as he held tlie
office, Thus lie step's from a $10,-
000 Job to one paying $22,75", a
nice little reward for work done.
Heads of the education office and
the board of agriculture each draw
$10,00 a year. The postmaster-general has to snuggle along on $12,.",0"
11 year, while the chief secretary for
Ireland receives $22,125 n year for
Hie none-too-easy tusk.
With a lew other exceptions the
rest of the cabinet draw $25,000 a
year each. There Is no salary attached to the post of prime minister,

SPORTS
McVEY'S VICTORY
A correspondent at the ringside of
the Langford-McVey bout at Sydney
describes it in the London Sporting
Life as follows: —
Langford was all aggression from
the start. McVey would not take the
slightest risk; he was nearly all for
defence. He would let Langford
come for him, and then he would
shoot out his left, and oftener than
not, and land effectively, too.
McVey in the first round disclosed his plan of campaign, which was
to play the waiting game, making
the most of his superior height and
reach, content always to make points
instead of going out to fight. And
he never budged an inch from this
idea. He was quick on his feet,
though not so quick as Langford.
Rather did he suggest the stereotyped boxer—a man who pinned his
faith on the efficacy of his left hand
■—he was not the great two-handed
boxer  Langford  was.
Here was Langford leaving himself
open, taking risks with delightful
unconcern so as to reach the body.
Handicapped as he was in the matter
of height, that was nearly all that ho
could do. II. was hard, indeed, for
him to reach McVey's face.
So Langford kept boring in, not
infrequently landing, but though he
showed wonderful cleverness in
dodging blows, there were many
times when ho could not escape the
long left of McVey.
McVey did not appear to try for a
knockout at all; just, waiting, waiting, for an opening for his left.
The people, because Langford
ever carried the fight lo McVey, were
taken to him completely, and In this
way they did McVey an injustice;
they rather belittled his magnificent
defensive work, and they forgot that
when be sent out his left he usually
landed and with power, too. Round
followed round—one very much like
the other.
In the eighteenth round McVey
kind of wakened up, and shook
Langford terribly with two hard
lefts, and when the round was over,
Langford's right eye was completely
closed. Besides, Langford had obviously taken a great deal out of himself, and therefore was a different
man, so that McVey made points
fast.
And then we got to the last round,
in which McVey fought with superb
judgment. Langford, with but one
eye, went all out for a knockout,
but McVey kept out of danger, and
then the end came with McVey, in
the opinion of the referee, the winner.
There was much excitement—almost wildness. People screamed
"Langford" by way of letting it be
known that they thought he had
won. But the decision was a good
one.
I would add that McVey proved,
beyond all question, that he is wonderfully clever; he boxed like a
champion;  he is a boxer with brains.
Langford, for his size, is a wonder, and a fighter to the last gasp.
But I would say his courage, his capacity for taking punishment, and
even the deep knowledge he has of
ringcraft, could not neutralize the
greater height and weight of such a
worthy man as Sam McVey.

Duchess   of   Marlborough   is Again in
Royal Favor in London Says

Among the attendants at Courts
at Buckingham Palace now that
King George and Queen Mary have
returned will be the Duchess of
Marlborough.
This news, which is just beginning to spread in London society, is
arousing great interest, and is everywhere recognized as indicating
recognition of ihe exceptional features of the Duchess's case, says a
London despatch lo the New York
Times.
Under the ordinary ruling no divorced woman or woman living apart
from her husband under Hie terms
of a legal separation is received at
Court. Rigorously enforced in
Queen Victoria's day, the rule, which
was relaxed under King Edward's
regime, was renewed by King George
and Queen Mary, but now it is understood that it is the expressed wish
of the King and Queen that certain
exceptions be made. The-first and
most important of these is to be the
Duchess of Marlborough, whose unblemished record combined with her
charitable and other good works
made here exclusion peculiarly conspicuous.
King George has also sanctioned
Lady Eva Wemyss's attendance at
Court. This in English eyes is perhaps an even more striking indication of the attitude their Majesties
are taking up, for Lady Eva became
the wife of Randolph Wemyss immediately after he had been divorced
by Lady Lilian Wemyss.
Despite talk to the contrary,
there is absolutely no sign that American presentations at the Courts
■will be subjected to any limitation!
other than those due to the necessity
of keeping the number of presentations to reasonable figures. T.he
American Embassy will be entitled
to make four presentations at each
Court, as before.
It is obvious that many Americans
who desire to make their curtsy to
English royalty will be disappointed, but tne same holds good In regard to a much greater number of
English women. Indeed, the Lord
Chamberlain's office has already issued pathetic notices that the lists
of resentations are closed, and that
no further applications can be considered.
The reports that Queen .Mary had
an objection to Americans were devoid ol foundation. The Queen has
among her particular friends several
prominent    A^nglo-American   women.

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
is 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  Btove putty.    It'i
important to every  one  using or  buying
a range.
