WITHDREW  LICENSE
George Sutherland's  Application Was
Found to be Out of
Order.
Applicant,    I peerr   Matter   Being   Investigated,  Derides  to  Withdraw   His   Request
The licence commissioners, Mayor
Manson, Aid. V. W. Smith and J. E.
Merryfield, sat on Wednesday, the
meeting being an adjourned one to
consider the application of George
Sutherland for a bottle licence. After
consideration, Mr. Sutherland withdrew his application on the advice
of his counsel, W. E. Fisher.
The petition asking for the licence
was not in order, according to the
advice of the city solicitor, to whom
it was referred for report. It was
pointed oiit by the chairman of the
board that unless the conditions
were all complied with to the letter,
the board was powerless, and could
not grant a licence. In the petition
the signatures asking for it were
supposed to cover all the block In
which the premises were located but
on the opposite side of the street
only half the owners were approached, apparently.
The report of the city solicitor
was as follows: <fct
Prince Rupert, B. C, Sept.'.^O, 1911.
To  the  Chairman  and   Members  of
the Licence Commissioners.
Gentlemen:—I have been asked to
report upon the application made by
George Sutherland for a bottle licence.
I find that this gentleman put in
an application on the 30th day of
August, 1911, in which he applied
for a bottle licence on premises
known as Lot 15, Block 22, Section
1. I find that in the newspapers
this application is for a different
block, namely, for Lot 9, Block 24,
Section 1, and I further find that
the petitions and plan submitted also
refer to Lot 9, Block 24, Section 1,
Under these circumstances, it appears
ip me that the application cannot
bV granted.
The statute and bylaw requires
that proper application shall be
filed and the important thing in that
application is the correct statement
of the premises for which the licence
is asked. The board can only act
upon the application filed with the
city clerk.
Again, even assuming that the first
point might in same way be got over
by the argument of the counsel for
the applicant, there are various other
serious objections to the petition and
plan. The statute expressly states
that these petitions are not to be
signed by agents. This requirement
has been broken in the present case.
Three people have signed by their
agents, and In a fourth case, where
there are two owners, one of them
had undertaken to sign for both. If
you take away the names not properly signed, the requisite number of
owners have not been obtained.
There appear to be sixteen owners
on Block 24, and only five properly
signed.
I would draw to your attention the
fact that in the statute it is expressly
provided that these petitions shall
not be altered after presentation.
and therefore there is no possible
means of amending these objections.
Again, the statutes requires that
a statement should be made on the
p'an as to whether the owners are
married or single anil that this statement should appear nn the plan, In
two cases (notably Captain John Irving, who Is put down as unmarried),
this rule has not been compiled with.
Again, I would point out the Slat-
ute requires the petition to show the
number of feet from each property
holder to the proposed site. In this
case the petition shows this, but in
several instances .the plan shows that
the distances are incorrectly stated.
Again, a large number of names
signed in blue Ink appear to be all
written by the same hand. I think
that the spirit as well as the letter
of the act requires that this petition
shall be personally signed; hence the
express statement that an agent can-
nont sign.
Again, in a petition purporting to
be signed by tenants and wives it
is difficult to tell who really 'have
signed,  and   who have  not.
All of which Is respectively submitted.
FRED   PETERS,
City Solicitor.

REAL ESTATE ACTIVE
Band of Love
The Salvation Army will begin Its
"Band of Love," giving attention
through this medium to the junior
department of the organization's
work. There will be a meeting one
week from today for the purpose of
recommencing this work. All children under 18 years of age are requested to attend the meeting and
take part in this.
PLENTY  OF  BEEF
P. Burns & Company Have a Very Large
Supply of Cattle in Hazelton District.
Precautions   Have   Been   Taken   to
Avoid Any Shortage of Meat
Tills Winter
Among the arrivals from Hazelton
yesterday were Mr. and Mrs. Blake
Wilson of the P. Burns Company.
Mr. Wilson has been in the interior
looking after the interests of his
company In the matter of meeting
the demands for the coming winter.
He went almost as far as Aldermere.
Mr. Wilson says that the company
is in good shape to meet all demands
in the beef line for the winter. There
are about 1200 head of cattle in
there now and these will all be
slaughtered before the New Year and
will be taken care of in the cold
storage quarters that the company
has at Hazelton.
The cattle to meet the demands of
that part of the country are all
brought in by way of Ashcroft. They
are taken in on foot, and with the
best of pasture lands in the Bulk-
ley Valley, the cattle are kept ready
for slaughter up to the time that
it is deemed best to have them taken
to the abbatoir.

PRIZE VEGETABLES
Bella Coola Sends Specimens of its Productions to  Prince
Rupert.
A   Rich  A'alley  Within  Easy  Reach
of the City Has Plentiful
Supply to Offer
This week there was exhibited in
the window of J. A. Kirkpatrlck's
store on Sixth Street a display of
vegetables from Bella Coola Valley.
These were sent to Dr. Clayton, who
took occasion to have them placed
on exhibition so that residents of
Prince Rupert might see for themselves what a productive area lay
within easy reach of this city. The
specimens certainly convinced all
who saw them that nowhere else
could the Bella Coola Valley be
beaten  In the raising of vegetables.
The display was from tbe garden
of Mr. Grant. That there are reported to be acres anil acres of land
that will produce equally as good
garden truck as those exhibited
here.
In the past the main difficulty has
been in securing transportation to
Prince Rupert. It is probable that
from now on the G. T. P. will give
a regular service with that pointn by
means of the Prince Albert and the
Henriette and that regular shipments
may be made here.
If the products can be forwarded
regunlarly it would certainly be a
boon to residents of Prince Rupert,
as they would have a supply of vegetables that cannot be beaten. In potatoes alone, the Bella Coola product is said to be quite the equal of
the famous Ashcroft production.
J. A. Kirkpatrick Has Bought Valuable
Corner Lot From the Prince
Rupert Club.
General Demand for Choice business
Locations   Is   Active—Prices
Are   Advancing
W. R. Lord, the Naas River cannery man, left for the south this
morning.
Real estate In Prince Rupert,
which has been moving steadily for
some weeks past, has now become
more sought affer. There has been
a decided firmness in the market in
the business section and seekers after
lots find its difficult indeed, to locate any lots for sale.
Last night the Prince Rupert Club
decided to sell the corner of Second
Avenue and Fifth Street, the purchaser being J. A. Kirkpatrick, who
bought it for $18,000. The price is
practically a cash one. The lot has
a frontage on Second Avenue of 36
feet with 100 feet on Fifth Street.
Owing to the fact that it has an
immense quantity of rock on it, the
price of the lot is really several
thousand dollars in advance of this
sum.
Mr. Kirkpatrick has not announced what use he will put fhe
lots to. The location is an admirable
one for business purposes.
The election excitement detracted
from real estate for a few shnrt
weeks. The reversal of the reciprocity policy seems to have given renewed confidence in the city of
hrince Rupert and investors are more
active than ever in selecting the
choicest locations on Second and
Third Avenue.
There has been quite a little relisting at somewhat advanced prices
during the past few days.
Hotel at Hot Springs
Preparations are reported to be
under way for the erection at an
early date of a large hotel at the
hot springs in the Lakelse Valley.
The undertaking has been commenced- by J. Bruce Johnson and
will be ready for next summer. The
springs are sure to be a great attraction as time goes by. The fact that
almost any degree of heat in the
water may be obtained at the location
will be the means of drawing those
seeking the advantages of the treatment to be obtained at such places.
 o	
Raises   Discount  Rate
The Bank of England raised its
discount rate from 3 to 4 per cent
a week earlier than last year in
order to protect Its reserve against
a possible unexpected demand before tha usual autumn gold shipments are thoroughly under way.
Curiously, money remains remarkably cheap and plentiful, and the
Bank of England's stocjt of coin and
bullion is nearly $215,000,000, bua
a measure of protection is considered necessary in view- of continental political situation and advanced
bank rates at Berlin, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark, with early rises
possible at Vienna and Paris.

GREAT FISH CENTRE
Cold Storage Plant at Seal Cove is Now
Being Fitted up for
Use.
Many Other Concerns Will Be Tributary to This City in the
Business
The Canadian Fish and Cold Storage Company's plant at Seal Cove is
fast assuming the appearance of business. With the walls completed and
the roof on the buildings, all is ready
for the installation of the engines,
the boilers and the necessary machinery. This latter work will be
proceeded with during the winter, so
that at an early date next summer
a start may be made in the handling
of fish and other produce.
In order to fully realize the extent of the works which the company has in this city it is necessary
to go through' the building and see
the extent of the floor space. To
view the structure from the outside
one cannot have a clear conception of
the Immense dimensions of the place
and understand the possibilties of
the works in the lines for which it
Is to be devoted.
The main building rises to a height
of seven storeys, the wall and floors
throughout being of reinforced concrete, with supporting pillars running from the rock foundation below to the very top of the building.
Provision is made for the loading
of the fish Into cars from the lowest storey on a level with the wharf.
By the arrangement of tbe plant,
fish that are to be shipped in a fresh
condition will be landed on the wharf
there and then put directly into the
cars from the row of doors which
open from the lowest floor directly
to the cars.
Provision  for Icing
For the icing of the cars provision
Is made whereby the ice made in the
plant may be placed in the box cars
from the second storey, the ice being .taken in at the' top of the car.
Ever;, thing is arranged to avoid
any extra labor in tbe handling of
the output. With a spur from the
main line of the vi. T. P. coming
alongside of the building at the rear,
there is every facility for the shipping by rail from the place. On the
water side there is a first class wharf
so that the approach from the harbor is as direct as possible. When
an is in running order the advantages to be derived from these first
class transportation facilities will be
felt ana will materially assist in the
economical carrying out of the business.
An idea of the wall space is derived from the fact that for the purposes of insulation it will require
ten carloads of hollow tiling. This
tiling is now on the ground and will
be put in place at an early date.
To complete the insulation and avoid
any heat gaining access to tlie chambers, each floor will be covered with
cork, which will in turn be covered
with asphalt. The walls over the
tiling and tile ceiling will also have
a coating of several Inches of cork.
Floors Are  Independent
Each floor will be independent as
far as the chilling is concerned anil
each ay be regulated independent of
the others as to what degree of coolness It is kept at. Pipes from the
room where the chilling process is
carried out will lead through the
different flats and in this way tbe
temperature may be regulated to
meet the demands of the contents.
when completed the plant will be
erne' of the most complete and will
also be one of the largest plains of
its kind anywhere In the world, The
erection of such works here is an
assurance of tlie great wealth which
lies in the waters In  this vicinity.
The works described are not the
only ones to be found in this part
of the province, each reaching out
for its share in the fishing Industry
in the near-by waters, and all of
wliich will find their outlet through
this port. At Claxton there is a cold
storage plant that has long been regarded as among the best on the
Pacific Coast. While in no sense
anything like the local one, it lias
facilities for the handling of an immense stock of frozen fish, either
fresh or mild cured. This plant has
changed hands recently, the new
owners being closely identified with
the iUaekenzie & Mann interests. The
plant will be materially increased.
Tsimpsean Company
In this city there will be an additional   plant   established   very   close
to the one of the Canadian Fish and
Cold Storage Company. This will be
a local concern known as the Tslmp-
san Fish Company. It will handle
all classes of fish, fresh and cured.
A site for the building has been secured from the G. T. P. a little this
side of the immense works of the
original company, and within a very
few days now work will begin on the
construction  of the plant.    A num-

Mr. D. D. McTavish of Victoria and
Miss Craig United in
Wedlock
In the marriage last evening of
Miss Emily Misle Craig, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Morte Craig, to Mr.
Duncan Douglas McTavish of Victoria, Prince Rupert loses one of her
most popular young ladies. Many
guests attended the ceremony, which
took place in St. Andrews Church,
Rev. Mr. James performing the ceremony.
The bride was given away by her
father, while Miss Dorothy McTavish,
a sister of the groom, accompanied
ner as bridesmaid. Two charming
little flower gir% "Pete" Treraayue
and Margaret Palmer were also in
attendance and performed their
parts  in  perfect  style.
The bride was attired in a pretty
gown of white catin moire trimmed
with very old Duchess lace. She
wore a veil and . carried a very
beautiful bouquet. Her bridesmaid
looked charming also in a white satin
gown with mauve cap of point lace.
.Mr. McTavish was supported by
E. B. Wallace of this city.
After the ceremony the party repaired to the home of the bride's
parents in the Clapp Block, where
the Wedding cake was cut and the
health of the bride and groom was
drunk.
After a few short speeches the
guests proceeded to enjoy the evening
in a social way. The store formerly occupied by J. r. McDonald on
the ground floor had been artis'ie-sjly
decorated for the occasion and was
used as a ballroom. Gray's orchestra
provided  the  music.
This morning Mr. and Mrs. McTavish left for Victoria by the Prince
Rupert, a large number being present
at the wharf to see them off. Tire
bride's going away dress was o%f golden brown with white beaver hat,
From the bridge of the steamer as

A   QUICK   FINISH
Joe Bayley the Victoria Boxer Proved
Too Nuch for Oscar Nelson His
Antagonist.
'wo  Small   Rounds   Wound   Ip   the
Contest Last  Night at  Kaien
Island   Club   Rooms
After a postponement from Wednesday night, the boxing contest between Joe Bayley and Oscar Nelson
came off last night. Nelson on Wednesday night weighed heavy, and the
contest was called off. Later it was
arranged to put the fight on and
accordingly they met a night late.
The referee, Nelson Dunn, at the
opening last night made his position
clear with respect to the announcement of the night previous that Nelson "had cold feet." He said he
had been misinformed.
The conditions of the contest were
that it should be for fifteen rounds,
the winner to take all. On tbe suggestion of the refereee, a collection
was taken up previous to the match
for the loser.
From the start, Bayley showed
himself the superior in every way.
Almost the first blow was on the
solar plexus of his opponent and
Nelson was glad to avoid further
close encounters to the end of the
round.
On the start of tne second round
Nelson did not seem to have quite
recovered on resuming, but made
a determined effort to even up. Bay-
ley, however, was too clever, and
forced the pace. After some fierce
exchanges Bayley reached Nelson's
jaw with a right hook, knocking him
against the ropes, from where he
slid to the boards, the referee standing over him counting out the seconds slowly. When the fatal 10 was
reached the audience rose to a man
and cheered tbe victor.
The fight was pronounced by all
to have been on the square. Nelson
went up against a man that was too
good for hlni, but he put up a plucky
fight. The hall was packed and the
wish was expressed tnat some further
contests might  be arranged  for.
Promenade Concert
A promenade concert is to be given
by the ladies of the Roman Catholic
Church in Melntyre Hall on Thursday, October 19. The ladles are
making preparations for a grand
event and extend an invitation to
all to be present. Refreshments will
be served by the ladies.

City—NEW HAZELTON.
NEW   HAZIOLTON   is   out   of   the
damp belt, and many people who
spend the whole year in the district
say the winters are not severe—
plenty of sunshine and dry air.
Taken from Official Bulletin, B.C.,
No. 22, Page 23: —
"On the Upper Skeena, about a
distance of 50 miles, there are large
tracts of land on both sides of the
river, which, as far as soil and climatic conditions are concerned, I
would consider ideal for successful
growing of fruit as well as for other
branches of agriculture. Potatoes,
and all garden produce, grow to perfection."
HAVE YOU CONFIDENCE OF
MERCHANTS ON THE GROUND?
Many leots already purchased by
the keenest business men of Hazelton (Old Town). You can safely
follow the judgment of such men.
NEW HAZELTON should be the
centre of a busy population of thousands within a year. Why not? During the pust year there was an average of over two new towns created
In the Canadian West every week.
We are all here to share In this
most wonderful prosperity.. We offer
you an opportunity to participate In
the progress of the best town for
Investment on the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific.
NEW HAZELTON Railroads Open
New Country.
Railroads have been the great
feature in the growth of Western
Canada.
NEW HAZELTON, located on the
Grand    Trunk   Pacific   Railroad   is
attracting the attention of the whole
world, as all important towns do on
the main line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railroad.
Stores are going up. Newspaper
plant now moving on the Townsite.
Two or three General Merchandise
Stores, Drug Store ( Bank, Restaurants, and in fact many lines of trade
are now arranging to open in NEW
HAZELTON, Section One. Activity is
in that part of the Townsite known
as Section  One.
The story of NEW HAZELTON is
well known to the public. It is a
Townsite being offered to the public
by successful business men. There is
positively no Railroad Company or
Townsite Promoter financially interested in the land. Tne owners have
undertaken to make NEW HAZELTON a city of importance in British
Columbia. NEW HAZELTON promises to be the most profitable city
to the Grand Trunk Pacific along its
main lines.
r.
Offices of Foley, Welch & Stewart,
contractors building the Grand Trunk
Pacific  Railroad, will be located in
NEW HAZELTON.   The Chief Clerk,
Paymaster and Purchasing Agent are
pii'piri'ing   to,  and will,  build homes
in NEW HAZELTON, Section One.
NEW HAZELTON, the hub of the
Hazelton District, will be the natural
headquarters for what promises to
be the most active and sensational
new city in the fastest growing part
of the world today on account of
the wonderful Lead, and Zinc Mines,
the Groundhog Mountain Coal Fields,
the Vast Agricultural Country tributary to the coming principal city in
Britisii Columbia on the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railroad.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad
is now running regular trains over
100 miles out of Prince Rupert. The
G. T. P. Officials, and also the
G. T. P. Contractors, say that the
Railroad should be running to Mile
164 this winter, and will reach NEW
HAZELTON next summer. Grading
is now under way as far along the
line as 30 miles east of NEW HAZELTON. The grading Is about finished from Prince Rupert to NEW
HAZELTON. Many mines are getting ready to ship ore. Some of the
mines being developed are: — Silver

Remember NEW HAZELTON is
not a gift Townsite and when you

money on the business judgment of
tbe most successful men in Britisii
Columbia.
NEW HAZELTON Townsite had over
a Quarter of a Million Dollars Invested by a few Business Men before
the Lots were offered for sale. NEW
HAZELTON is a Business Man's
Townsite. All the G. T. P. and Local
History was carefully considered.
The Engineer's Reports as to grades,
opportunities for Side Tracks necessary to handle the thousands of
freight cars were examined. Then
they Invested in NEW HAZELTON.
They paid In Cash for NEW HAZEI,-
TON  and   nearby  Lands  over  Two
Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars.
That is a wonderful sonnet written
by John J. Ingalls on the subject of
Opportunity, but the real fact Is,
Opportunity does not knock once on
each man's door. Opportunity plays
a continual anvil on every man's portals—but, of course, if he Is knocking at the time he will not hear
Opportunity when she knocks.

JUST ONE  NEW HAZELTON
THE  SPOKANE  OF CANADA
All Interests Combine to Boost the
New Town—Campaign Has Started—Natural Resources Guarantee a Big Population—Contractors' Headquarters.
The New Hazelton campaign has
started. For the next few months
the very best efforts of some of the
greatest advertising men and real
estate firms in British Columbia will
be devoted to Boosting New Hazelton. The different interests have
combined to make this town one of
the foremost in the province. A careful study has been made by experts
and they are all agreed that there
cannot be too much boosting. The
natural resources are here and they
are now being developed in a way

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Explorations in Ethopia
The Royal Geograophical Society
has received an interesting account
of the experiences of Major Gwynn
In carrying out frontier delimitaee*
tlon work In Abyssinia. In 1902 an
expedition was organized under the
auspices of A. Butler, C.M.G., the,
object of which was the exploration
Of the southern frontier region of
Abyssinia. To this interesting expedition was attached Captain P.
Maude, R. E., whose duty was to
carry out a series of survey operations for the future frontier line. In
1907 a treaty based on Captain
Maude's recommendations was concluded, which defined the boundary
between our East Afrlchn colonies
and the Emperor Menelik's country.
Another stipulation of this treaty was
that the boundary line Was to be
definitely fixed by a special delimitation commission, and in order to
do this Major C. W. Gwynn, C.M.G.,
D.S.O., R.E., was appointed by the
British government to carry out the
important work of delimitation. It
may be mentioned that the frontier
to be deliminated by Major Gwynn
extended from the junction of the
Ganale and Raua Rivers in the east
to the southern boundary terminal of
the Sudan-Abyssinian boundary, at
the intersection of Latitude 6 degrees
north and Longtltude 35 degrees
west. This was a total length of
some six hundred miles.
The personnel of the commission
consisted of Captain R. Waller, R.E.,
assistant commissioner; Captain G.
Condon transport officer; Dr. R. E.
Drake Brockman, medical officer;
and Corporal C. Carter and Sapper
C. Favier, both assistant surveyors
and of the Royal Engineers. The
party left these shores in the June
of 1908, reaching Dire Dana about
three weeks later. In the account
that Major Gwynn has sent to the
Royal Geographical Society of his
journey he says that his transport
consisted of about one hundred
camels with a dozen riding mules and
ponies. His native following, wliich
comprised 90 Somalis, were all untrained men, but about 70 per cent
Of them were specially armed. At
the end of July Dire Daua was left
behind. Progress, however, was exceedingly slow, owing to the bad
state of the roads and the poor conditions of the animals, and still further delay was necessitated owing to
the delay In appointing Abyssinian
representatives through the Illness
of Emperor Menelik. All this delay
was In the end turned to good account, for it enabled the party to
carry out some extended survey operations.
Addis Abeba was reached about
the end of August. A little farther
on in the journey the leaders of the
party paid a visit to the Allla concession. Major Gwynn has something very interesting to say of this
colony of businesslkie Frenchmen
who have established themselves on
the spurs of the eastern scarp. The
main object of the enterprise, he
says, is to raise cattle for the markets of Eden, Jibuti! and the Red
Sea ports. The country is eminently
suitable, and the railway extension
will provide an easy means of transport. The main difficulty is the lack
of organization to control cattle diseases. Rinderpes ts prevalent In
Abyssinia, and at any time the coast
markets may be closed to Abyssinian
cattle. M. Gros, the leading concessionaire, has another farm for the
cultivation of coffee, situated in the
vicinity of Assobat, and it is hoped
that by the time the railway reaches
the Hawash both his enterprises will
be In a position to avail themselves
of the start they have of other competitors.
A  Curious  Church
On leaving Addis Abeba the party
made their way to Glnlr, and crossed
the Hawash at the upper end of the
marshy plain of Wanjl, In the neighborhood of this plain there is a,
small Abyssinian village anil customs port. Tire account says that it
has "a curious 111tie church consisting of a stone-built cube surmounted
by a sharp steeple like roof, also of
stone. The church was probably a
Mohammedan shrine originally, similar to that at Sheikh Hussein and
others In the Arussi country. . . .
The opposing scarp, from Ankober
southwards', runs in a great wall,
crested with the more distant mountains round Addis Abeba. It was a
glorious day of blue sky and driving
white cloud-masses, throwing shadows of all gradations of blue and
purple, while the ripe cornfields and
pasture lands on the terraces below
were gold and green In the sun."
When the party had nearly arrived
at Glnlr, Major Gwynn found his
main caravan in a deplorable condition. More than a third of the Somalis were down with fever of a bad
type, and his transport animals had
suffered greatly despite the amount
of care that was destowed on them.
Even the officers had fever. It was
believed that a supply of transport
animals would be secured at Gimlr,
but it seems that the place has lost
a great deal of its importance as a
trade centre. The main business
transacted there is the illicit traffic
in arms.
At the end of November the party
reached the junction of the Daua and
the Ganale Rivers and found a post
of the Boma Trading Company, established on the right bank, with
Mr. Horneyold and his assistant, Mr.
Vincent, in charge. A trying march
was effected on the long -waterless
stretch from El Wak (the well of
God) to Takaba. Dr. Drake Brock-
man contracted black-water fever
soon after the party left Malka Sala,
and to Captain Condon fell the task
of carrying him, when convalescent,
over the 56 miles of waterless tract
from Mutlilo to Banissa. Lake Rudolph was reached in the February
of theh following year.
Major Gwynn concludes his account by saying that the ethnology
of Southern Abyssinia is very interesting and there is much scope for
scientific investigation. The Galla
race is especially interesting. They
exhibit a curious mixture of Paganism and Mohammedanism. Little is
known of them, and it is difficult to
pick up the broad facts of their distribution from the map. There seems
little doubt that, like the Somalis,
they are of Asiatic origing, and in-
vaded Abyssinia from the Gulf of
Aden.

Cost' of Living
While thousands are starving in
China, and France is being torn with
riots in protest againsnt the high
cost of food, these is merely renewed
attention in this part of the globe to
the fact that sugar has reached its
highest point in twelve years, that
coffee is dearer and that potatoes
are selling as high as $1 and $1.10
a bushel in the field. In view of
this, householders are asking themselves: "Will this winter see another
Increase in the cost of living?" says
tlie News-Vancouver in its commercial review. To this question economic experts, interviewed during
the past few days, say no. Prices
will be higher, they say, in some instances above those of last winter,
but they add lhat the man who sets
his table with plain, everyday fare,
avoiding fancy brands and near-luxuries, may await the approach of
cold weather without undue anxiety.
It is pointed out that, generally
speaking, with the exception of coffee, sugar, potatoes and a few canned vegetables, the present mouth
of September was ushered in with
conditions more favorable to the consumer than was the case a year ago.
On September 1, mess pork was quoted at $19 a barrel wholesale, as
against $24 for the same date in
1910; the wholesale price of ham is
a little more than 25 cents a pound,
as compared with 18 cents in the
early fall of last year; western lard
Is selling at a fraction more than
9 cents, as against more than 12
cents in September, 1910, and butter and eggs are comparatively reasonable, and a few cents cheaper
retail than in last September.
Flour of good quality is selling at
lowest retail prices as $5.95 a barrel,
the same price that prevailed at this
time last year, and bacon may be
had at some stores for 20 cents a
pound against 23 and 25 cents a year
ago. The "average faimly" stearl
costs about 28 cents a pound, as it
did last year, though some quality
of steak may be purchased ns low as
18 cents a pound; but experts say
that with all feeding crops short, It
Is not unlikely that beef will go
higher as the winter progresses.
Tlie cost of poultry will he largely
determined by cold storage holdings.
Indications are that the shortage of
potatoes Is serious,-not only In this
country and the United States, but
also In Great Britain ami Germany,
In the fall of lust year one could
buy good potatoes in the field at 55
cents a bnushel; to day the prices
range from 5 cents more to $1. Canned peas, beans and tomatoes also
will be higher, but rice remains
cheap, ami unless there is a marked
advance in pork it is argued that the
man of slender means can provide
for his family without serious strain.
Sugar and coffee are botli phenomenally high, but those who are studying the market predict that decreased
consumption, which invariably follows a prohibitive advance, will soon
restore these two breakfast table necessities to a more normal level. Failure of the European sugar beet crop
and poor prospects in Cuba are given
as the cause of the abrupt jump in
tho  sugar market.
It is almost impossible to strike an
intelligent average of the price to
the consumer, so much depending on
the location of the dealer's store.

CABINET  MAKING
With tlie early advent to power of
Mr. Borden there is a great deal of
Speculation as to the personnel of
the new cabinet. The name of Hon.
R chard Mi-Bride is freely mentioned
as likely to enter the government at
Ottawa as one of the first lieutenants
Of Mr. Borden. Such a course is bell.g practically demanded by a certain element in the defeated Opposition in II. C. it being quite a favorite
amusement on the part of this same
element to frame up cabinets and
policies for Mr.  Borden.
While Mr, .McBride may be induced by Mr. Borden to enter the
Federal field, we feel safe in informing these local cabinet makers that
Premier McBride. is losing no sleep
over tire subject. While Mr. McBride's name has been put forward
for many years as a probable factor
in Dominion politics, we are safe in
saying that never once in all his
career has he ever said anything that
could be interpreted as expressive of
a desire to enter the larger arena.
He has won a proud place in provincial affairs. He rose to that position on his merits and against fearful odds. He has the distinction of
standing without a rival in the local
arena. The work he has accomplished
In British Columbia is having an
effect upon the residents of the province quite as important as anything
that he could do at Ottawa. He is
pre-emiently a safe man, and the
benefits of his wise administration
anil his forceful personality are doing
much to attract the best kind of investments to B. C.
Under these circumstances, It is
more than likely that Mr. McBride
would be slow to relinquish his connection with local politics to enter
the Federal field.
At Ottawa he could accomplish
much for the province. As a native
son of the Pacific province he will
carefully consider the matter from
every stanclpoin If he is urged to
enter tlie cabinet at Ottawa before
accepting. He will decide the question from the standpoint of service
to his country.
Among his supporters from the Atlantic to the Pacific, Mr. Borden
has not a more loyal one than
Premier McBride and whether
he remains as premier of B. C. or
enters the Federal ministry li is support will be given ungrudgingly,
RETIRING  FROM   POLITICS
Press despatches from Ottawa say
that Hon. William Templeman' is to
retire ironi politics. The despatch
seems to savor of irony.
Mr. Templeman lias been a dismal
failure as :r public man. lie- possessed few of the requisites that go
to make a successful politician or
public man, His only qualifications,
In fact, for party preferment were
that he was an uncompromising supporter of his party and he was not
a grafter.
That lie lacked In all other essentials Is shown by the. fuel thai in
all his years of public life he won
bul one election and thai was a by-
electlon when he was given a portfolio al Ottawa,
Mr. Templeman will not find ii
iliffie-iilt tn retire from politics. The.
electorate have assisted him materially In his desire.
Case Dropped
The charges brought by Fishery
Inspector Williams against an employee of Henry Doyle for violating
the regulations have been dropped.
 o ;	
Trade  in   Europe
Arrangements have been made at
Taranki in New Zealand to send trial
shipments of frozen meats to the
prairies and to Britisii Columbia. It
is hoped in New Zealand that profit-
able markets will be developed.
 o	
Edmonton's city Hull
If the Ideas and intentions of
Mayor Armstrong and the members
of the preliminary committee appointed some time ago to deal with
the city hall question prevail, Edmonton will next year have under
construction a city hall which will
cost at least a million dollars and
will be without exception the finest
municipal pile in Western Canada.

Crop  Report
The government crop bulletin
estimates the yield of spring wheat
for the Dominion at 187,000,000
bushels, an average of 19.14 bushels
per acre. The total wheat yield, Including fall wheat, is estimated at
204,500,000 bushels, or 82,000,000
more than last year. The total yield
of oats is estimated at 368,000,000
bushels, an Increase of 85,000,000.
The total wheat yield of the prairie
provinces is estimated at 18 5,000,000
bushels.

At  the  Bridge
The building of the railway
bridge across the Skeena River some
fourteen miles below Hazelton is a
big undertaking and one that will
take several months to finish, says
the Inland Colonist. Already 140
men are working, and that number
will probably be doubled by the end
of the year. Already a little town
has sprung up on this side of the
river, and times will probably be
pretty lively there while the construction is going on. Among the buildings erected is a Y. M. C. A.
 o ■
Owen Wister, in addition to being
an author, has acquired some celebrity as a wit. He was being shaved
in a St. Louis hoel, some time ago,
and the barber who was attending
to his needs apparently had been
out the night before. His hand was
very shaky, and several times the
author winced.
"Will you have anything on your
face when I get through?" the barber
inquired, when the ordeal was almost
over.
"1 can't tell yet," mumbled Wister, "but I hope to have part of my
nose!" .
 o	
"Edilication!" sneered a tramp, as
he was discussing Britain's weakness
under a hedge. "Bab!" "You may
say 'Bah!' till you turn into a sheep,"
retorted his brother of the road,
"but it won't alter matters! I tell
you, we couldn't get along without
eddtcation." The other banged his
fist upon a thistle. "Don't talk to
me," he cried. "I never got anything out of goin' to school!" "I
dare say you didn't!" sneered the
champion of learning-. "But you
would have if you'd gone in the right
spirit!" "Well, what did you get?"
asked his companion. "What did I
get?" came the retort. "Why, four
coats, two hats, a stick, and eight
umbrellas! Don't tell me it's waste
n' time to go to school!"
onths ago Colquhoun's health became
imparled and tuberculosis hastened
his end.
When the late Sir W. S. Gilbert
was 27, and was known to the world
as a promising writer, his father,
who was a retired naval surgeon,
wrote a semi-metaphysical, semi-
medical book entitled "Shlrely Hall
Asylum," his first book. Not long
ago, a lady, who was then preparing
a biography of the younger man,
having heard that the son was the
incentive which spurred Into action
the inherent but dormant literary
talent of the father, asked If such
was the fact. "Yes,"' replied, the
author of the Bab Ballads, and the
wittiest of librettos ever written, "I
think the little success which has
attended my humble efforts certainly influenced my father. You see,"
he added with a suspicion of a smile,
"my father never had an exalsted
idea of my ability. He thought if
i could write, anybody could, and
forthwith he began."
"On yonder hill," cried the gen-
eral, scanning the battlefield with
his glasses. "I see a black mass of
men. What are they?" "Camera
fiends." replied the second-in-command.    "And who nre occupying that
field   to  the sunt Invest? I'hose,"
answered    the    second-in-command,
"are   operators   for   the   blograph.
••I s«'o ii battalion with curious-shaped guns. rhey are nol guns! they
are gramophones and phonographs,
in which arc to be recorded the roar

Hie general,  stroking  his  bear  complacently.    "Let the battle begin."

DIED   IN JAIL
NEW WESTMINSTER—Louis Col-
quhon, a desperado who figured in
the public eye In 1905 In holding up
a westbound express on the C. P. R.
near Ducks, B. C, and the theft of
the registered ail bags, died yesterday in the New Westinster penitentiary hospital. Colquhoun was an
associate of Bill Miner and "Shorty"
Dunn In this holdup. The trio was
captured later by the Royal Northwest Mounted police after a hard
fight In tlie foothills near Kamloops.
Miner and Dunn were senteneced to
life Imprisonment and Colquhoun
was given twenty-five years.    A few
NELSON—Strawberries, picked on
September 19, are a novelty, even in
the Kootenay strawberry region,
which has a late season, and which
goes in for late varieties. Yet on
that date strawberries of the "Giv-
ens Late" variety were on sale in
this city, grow-n on the ranch of Andrew Sutherland, across the West
Arm. These berries were the second
crop this season from these vines.
From the way the vines a're still
loaded with green berries, It is expected that Mr. Sutherland will be
able to show fresh strawberries at
the annua' fruit fair of the Kootenay, held  here September 26-28.
STRUCK OFF LIST
VICTORIA—The purging of the
register of stock companies in British Columbia by the cancellation of
the Incorporation rights of such as
have failed to comply with the full
requirements of the law for the protection of the public still proceeds,
the last week having witnessed the
striking from the rolls of the Kootenay Mining and Smelting Company
(foreign), Kootenay Reduction
Company (foreign), Duluth & St.
Paul Mining Company (foreign), W.
H. Keeley Gold Cure Company (foreign) Columbia-American Mining
Company (foreign), Western Consolidated Mining Company (foreign),
Shafer Gold and Sliver Mining Company (foreign), Spokane & Great

V. I., Ltd., Point Comfort Hotel Co.,
Ltd., Sayward Mill and Timber Co.,
Ltd., British Pacific Construction Co.,
Ltd., and Victoria Electric Illuminating Co., Ltd. Two months' notice is
in each case given, during which period the companies referred to may
re-establish their corporate rights by
full compliance with the terms of the
statute. They are, as will be noted,
however, as a rule, extinct organizations, the mere mention of which in
several instances recalls business enterprises of years gone by. The Can-
adion Pacific Navigation Company
was some time ago absorbed by the
C. P. R. and others in the present
list have also disappeared by business
expansions and absorptions.
HISTORIC SCHOOLHOUSE
VICTORIA—The historic old
schoolhouse at Craigflower, celebrated among all visitors as well as residents as being the first educational
institution established in the then
colony of Vancouver Island, is shortly to disappear as a school in active
service, although it is expected that
the authorities will take measures to
secure its preservation, for its historic assications. Tenders for the
erection of a new- two-roomed modern schoolhouse are now being invited by tlie public works department.
DEAD MAX'S VISIT
NEW WESTMINSTER — Found
drowned, buried and declared dead
thirteen months ago, and now walking the streets, large as life, indignantly denying that he was ever
dead, is the experience of a certain
.Mr. Bunyan. In August, 1911, a
body was found near the Coquitlam
River in the reservoir dose to the
dam, face downwards In the mud.
The body was recovered and an inquest held. Four men positively
Identified Hie body as that of Mr.
Bunyan, who had left the employment at the dam, without calling for
his wages. The body was buried.
Tills week, however, Mr. Bunyan returned, anil called on ihe foreman of
the jury empanelled to inquire into
lhe cause of bis death. The. foreman wns thunderstruck. It, therefore, remains a mystery who was the
unfortunate man, drowned in Ihe Coquitlani dam thirteen months ago.
AGREEMENT WITH MIXERS
NANAIMO—The agreement between the Western Fuel Company
and Its underground employees,
under which the local mines have
been worked the last six years, has
been renewed for another two years,
dating from the end of the present
month. This agreement, which has
now been in operation six years, was
signed by the men's committee and
officials of the Western Fuel Company last Monday night. Negotiations
between the company and its underground employees looking toward the
renewal of the agreement which expired at the end of the present
month have been conducted for the
past two weeks, and that the question has been amicably settled and
two years more of industrial peace
assured will be a cause of gratification not only to the company and its
employees, but to the residents of
the city in general.    It speaks well
for the officials of the company that
the terms of the working agreement
have been so faithfully kept that the
employees have secured a renewal
of the same withount difficulty or
hesitation, and with the opening of
new mines In the near vicinity, with
vast development work projected, and
two years of industrial peace assured,
Nanaimo looks forward to a bright
future with even more prosperous
days than the past has recorded.
The dinner was over, and the last
man to leave the cloakroom saw Pat,
the custodian, looking very miserable.
"Well, Pat," he said, "what's the
matter? Haven't they paid you very
well for looking after things?"
"Sure, sor," replied the dejected
one, "It isn't that they haven't paid
me, but, begorra, they've taken the
shilling I put in the plate as a decoy!"

HEAVYWEIGHTS  PASS
Heavyweight pugilists are out of
style, at least for the time being.
Possihiy the fact that Jack Johnson
and a few other dusky skinned men
are on top of the heap has something
to do with the public's indifference
toward? the big fellows. But, whether such is the case or not, it is noticed that the promoters are not
reaching out for heavyweight cards,
and the promoters are supposed to
keep a finger on the public pulse.
Hugh Mcintosh, the Australian
promoter, makes it his boast that he
will have a whole herd of American
heavies in Sydney before Christmas.
Possibly he will. The heavyweight
section at present resembles a weed
patch, and if Mac has secured the
men he speaks of it may give those
tender plants known as "white
hopes" a chance to grow.
It Is noticed, however, that Mcintosh is not bragging about American
lightweights he will Introduce to
fight-lovers of Australia. No, sir.
The lightweights are having it worth
their while to stay at home, and the
heavies are being permitted to wander where they listeth. The moral
stands out in this like a wooden peg
in a cheap shoe.
Lightweight boxers will furnish
the best of the pugilistic entertainment in this country, for quite a
while. And the better the lightweight the oftener he will entertain.
Knockout Brown's manager, Dan
Morgan, in declining a Los Angeles
offer to match his man against Freddie Welsh, said that Brown had a
dozen contracts to look forward to
in the next two months, and that he
would box Welsh later. In the slang
of yester-years, "that's going some."
The question is how long with a
youngster like K. 0. B. last if he is
sent along at such a break-neck clip?
He is a youth so new to the game
that his name does not appear in the
1910 records, yet we hear of him
being committed to a dozen matches
in the next two months.
It almost looks as if Morgan, in
addition to claiming the lightweight
championship for Brown, might
claim the record for the greatest
number of matches In the shortest
space of time. Surely, It must be
a record.
Will "Knockout" train separately
for each of these bouts, or will he
condition himself to begin With and
figure that the first will constitute
training and the second, and so on
until he has finished the campaign?
Whichever way he fixes it, it looks
as if he would have to sleep in fighting costume and with boxing gloves
tied  to his wrists.
But, perhaps, after all, Manager
Morgan is drawing the long bow.
Possibly he was afraid of offending
Welsh if he told Freddie straight
out that Brown wanted nothing to
do with him and preferred pleading
a multiplicity of engagements.
Joking aside, it was evident that
the new order of things in the east
is going hard on rising young lightweights. If tlie K. 0. B. date book
is to be taken as a fair sample, the
New York fight fans will be watching bouts between jaded boxers before the season is over.
Bat Nelson used to say that lie
would have preferred to box every
two weeks. With that time the Dane
would have to have a life tenure of
the wonderful endurance with which
nature endowed him. Now he knows
that even lighting flesh has Its limitations.
THK GREATEST TENNIS PLAYER
There has been a good deal of discussion lately both in England and
the United Stales, us to which player
Is entitled to be classed as the world's
greatest lawn tennis player produced
SO tar. Several names have been
brought forward, among llioni II. L.
ami It. F. Doherty, Lamed, Dr. P.lm,
W. Renshaw, Whitman and R. 1).
Wrenn. In comparing these players and In order to pick the one entitled to tlie honor, they must be
considered as both single and double
players. Here are their records—
only national championships and
Davis Cup competitions being considered, says Hitch in the Toronto News.
H. L. Doherty, single champion of
England five difefrent years. He retired in 1907 unbeaten. Doubles
champion of England with brother
eight different years. Champion of
the United States in 1903. Doubles
champion of States twice, 1902-1903;
Davis Cup; 1902, defeated both Lar-
ned and Wrenn in the singles, and
won the doubles from the Wrenn
brothers; 1902, won the doubles from
Ward and Dwls; 1905, beat Ward
and Lamed In singles and beat Ward
and Wright In doubles; 1906, beat
Ward and Ltltle in singles, and the
same pair in doubles; retired in
1907; a truly wonderful record.
R. F. Doherty, four different years
singles champion of England;  eight
different years doubles champion of
England. He has the same doubles
record as his brother, but was defeated by Larned in 1902 in the
United States championship. however, defeated Larned in Davis Cup
matches in 1903, and Wrenn in 1903;
lost to Whitman in 1902. Owing to
ill-health, gave up playing singles in
1904. A wonderful record, but not
quite as good as H. L. Doherty.
Larned, six times champion of
U. S. A. Lost his time to H. L. Doherty -In 1903, but beat R. F., in
1902. As a double player he has not
done much. Beaten once by R. F.
Doherty and twice by H. L. Beat
both Brooks and Welding in 1905.
He has a magnificent record as a
single player, but as an all-round
player he does not quite reach R. F.
They played each other twice, and
each has a victory to his credit.
Dr. Pirn, thought by many in England, at his best, the greatest of
them all. His record, however, is
short, Twice singles champion of
England and twice doubles champion
of England. Defeated In 1902 by
both Larned and Whitman in Davis
Cup. Great player as Dr. Pim was
undoubtedly, he has no chance for
first position.,
W. Renshaw, seven times singles
champions and seven times doubles
champion of England. This is really
a remarkable record. There is no
way of comparing him. Despite his
record, could not give him first place,
as tennis in the eighties was not quite
up to the standard of the nineties
and after.
R. D. Wrenn, champion of the O. S.
A. four times. He was beaten in
19 03 by both the Doherty brothers.
A good record, but not enough.
M. D. Whitman, three times champion of the U. S. A. Defeated R. F.
Doherty and Dr. Pim in 1902. Beaten
by H. L. Doherty in 1903 in U. S.
Championship. Also a good record,
but not good enough.
In giving H. L. Doherty first place
the most deciding factor is the calibre
of the men he defeated. Here are
some of them: A. W. Gore, F. S.
Risley (three times), N. E. Brooks
(twice), W. A. Larned (three times),
Whitman (once)', R. D. Wrenn, H.

POLE AFTER GOTCH
Zbyszko, the giant Pole wrestler,
is on the trail of Frank Gotch, the
world's champion heavyweight.
Through his manager, Jack Herman,
the athletic promoter, the title-holder of Europe has issued a challenge
to the Iowa farmer and he is coming
across the pond next month f6r the
purpose of arranging, if possible, a
match with Gotch. In a letter to the
sporting editor of the News-Advertiser, received recently, Jack Herman
states that he is willing to garantee
Gotch $10,000 as his share if he will
consent to a match. Herman's letter
follows:
"Zybszko, the Polish wrestling
champion, under my management,
will come to America the last of
October, on his third visit to this
country. He comes with the expectation of securing a championship
match with Frank Gotch, and returning to Europe with the world's title
of the mat. On behalf of the Pole,
I challenged the winner of the Gotch-
Hackenschmidt match in Chicago on
Labor day, and as Zybazko Is the
logical candidate for a atch, it is
difficult to see how the champion is
going to ignore him if he does not
retire, and there is no expectation,
apparently, that he will leave the
public mat.
"While it is a fact that Gotch defeated Zbyszko two years ago, there
can be no denying that the Pole went
into the atch in his worst form of a
strenuous year, and that he was defeated by trickery of the mat rather
than by superior strength or skill.
Pictures of the Gotch-Zbyszko match
have shown uie world that in both
falls secured by the chap-ion, the
Pole was not on the defensive, once
having his hand outstretched to begin the bout with the customary curtesies, and on the other occasion
caught turning in expostulation with
the referee. This match was no true
test of merit, and is so regarded
by all experts. Gotch was unable
to gain any advantage over Zbyszko
in an hour's previous wrestling, and
would probable have met defeat on
that occasion, had the match been
permitted to pass the 60-minute
limit.
"Since this event in America, Zbyszko has defeated every man of note,
with the exception of Gotch, and as
he is the logical choice, we will use
every effort to secure the bout. To
prove our sincerity of purpose and
to convince the champion that this
Is no unworthy challenge, I offer
him, through the columns of your
valuable paper, $10,000 as his share
if he will consent to meet Zbyszko
In a finish match for the title, and
I am prepared to post $1,000 and
agree to post the balance upon signing articles. Should I fall to do
this, the forfeit shall gei to any charitable organization you i.'ay name.
You are, no doubt, aware Unit $10,-
000 is more than Gotch has ever
received for any contest with the exception of the one on Labor Day, anel
trust you will call his attention to
the fact.
"In the meantime 1 am prepared
to prove to the followers of wrestling
in America that Zbyszko is capable
of defeating anyone that can be secured to go against him. I want to
show that he is a greatly improved
wrestler, and with this end in view,
1 would be pleased to bring him to
your city to meet anyone in a finish
match that can be secured to go
against  him.     Yours eery  truly,

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Friday, September  29,  1911.
Chemical  Elements
Sir William Ramsay, in his recent
address before the British Association at Portsmouth devoted a consid-
;:able portion of his remarks to a
discussion of ancient and modern
views of the nature of the chemical
elements, In the light of recent researches, in wliich he had had so
large a share, on the inert gases of
the atmosphere and on radium. Like
several distinguished chemists in the
past, lie Is evidently attracted hy the
Idea that matter Is unitary in Its
nature, that what we know as elements are in some way com pounded
of different proportions of some primary material. But whether Its considerations he brought forward substantially strengthen the case for
such a view, from an experimental
as opposed to a theoretical and sentimental standpoint, is perhaps open
to doubt.
It is true that the atomic weights
of more than half the elements are,
on the most recent computations,
within one-tenth of a unit above or
below an integral number, and Sir
William Ramsay has the assurance of
Professor Karl Pearson that the
matchematical chances against such
a condition being accidentaly are 20,-
000 millions to one; still, after the
most elaborate precautions have
been taken to ensure accuracy, the
fact remains that the numbers are
not exactly integral. If it is true,
again, that in the periodic classification of the elements elaborated by
Mendelejeff and others, which has
served chemists so well, not merely
to record but also to predict, that
perhaps not unnaturally their show a
tendency to raise it to the dignity
of a physical law, several of the existing gaps have been satisfactorily
filled up by the results of recent discoveries, and to that extent its claims
to validity have been enhanced.
Yet a considerable number of the
gaps still await occupants; and
though by calling in the aid of the
newer rare earth metals and of the
products of the transformation of
radium—which, however, like their
progenitor, contradict the othodox
conception of an element, in that they
can be split up, or rather split themselves up, into constituent parts
enough elements can be found to fill
the empty spaces, unfortunately their
properties are not always of the required character, and to accept them
for the vacancies merely because of
their numerical qualifications would
destroy the whole meaning and value
of the periodic scheme. But even
were all the atomic weights ascertained to be Integral, and were the
periodic table completely filled, the
unitary hypothesis would not be adequately proved, and there would still
remain for solution the baffling problem why substances made up ot different multiples of the same primary
stuff should present the wide divergences of character und beha'ior
fouuil In the elements as we know
tlri-nr
A reference to the enormous store
of energy concentrated in radium and
liberated during Its disintegration led
Sir William Riutiwiy to the subject.
°f '.!'.& energy available to the world
in general and to Great Britain in
particular. Radium itself probably
exists in quantities far too small to
be of any practical use as a source
of energy, but supposing that like it
the other so-called elements are
changing, though very slowly, with
evolution of energy, and supposing
that some means could be discovered
of making the change proceed at a
useful rate, then, he pointed out, a
new supply of energy would, be at
the disposal of mankind which would
alter the whole future of the face.
But he made It clear that In his opinion we have no warrant whatever for
relying on so remote a possibility—
it would lie folly to consider seriously n possible supply of energy In
a conceivable acceleration of lhe liberation of energy by atomic change"
—and other sources which have been
suggested, such as the tides, the heat
of the sun, and the Internal heal of
the earth, are all equally hopelesl so
far as can be seen at present.
In tbi'se. islands coal Is the only
considerable source of energy at command, and on England's power to
produce it at a relatively cheap price
depends lied commercial supremacy
and her ability to compete with other
European nations. Yet, In spite of
ils paramount importance for them
the English behave as If the store
were inexhaustible. While Belgium
raises 4 1-2 tons of coal per head of
her population every year, and Ger
many only 2 1-2 tons, England raises
6 tons, and If she continues to draw
em her reserves at the same increasing rate as during the last forty
years, they will be exhausted In less
than two centuries. In these clr
cumstanceslt Is plainly England's
duly to promote economy In the use
of coal by every possible means, and
careful consideration is deserved by
Sir William Ramsay's suggestion
that, that the example of America,
England should establish a Conservative Commission, charged with the
duty of keeping watch on the dimin
uition of the stores of natural energy
and of taking steps to lessen its
rate.
The ordinary man, if he can be
induced to pay any consideration to
this question of exhaustion of coal
supplies, and if he does not merely
brush it aside as a matter for posterity, usually consoles himself with
the comforting reflection that something will turn up to fill the breach.
This loose optimism may be a touching tribute to the powers of scientific
workers, who are no doubt expected
to produce the something in the same
way as a conjurer produces a rabbit
from an empty hat, but it is also a
sign of atotal lack of the scientific
spirit. Progress in science, as Sir
William Ramsay insists, consists in
developing a spirit of provision; In
attempting to forecast the future, not
by vague surmise, but by the orderly
marshalling of facts and by deducing
from them their logical outcome;
and, chiefly, in endeavoring to control conditions which may be utilized
for the lasting good of the pSople.
Meetings of the British Association are now marked by Spartan simplicity in comparison with the brilliant debut at Oxford during the
summer term of 1832. Those were
the days of Gargantuan eating and
drinking and there was lavish hospitality. In addition to daily dinners
there were open air breakfasts in
the college gardens, and "free refreshments" at all meetings. Two
fat bucks were devoured, one sent by
the Duke of BucKinghamshire, and
the other by Archbishop Harcourt
from Nuneham Park. A skeleton appeared at the feasts of these epicurean savants in the shape of a
question whether women should be
allowed to attend their meetings. In
the end, Mrs. Somerville decided not
to attend, "for fear her presence
should encourage less capable representatives of her sex." A rather sarcastic article of the Times commented
on the first meeting, and came to the
conclusion that such scientific gatherings served no good purpose.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
DEAL AT HAZELTON
Mineral Property Reported to be Chang-

Continued   Activity   In   the   Camps
Up the Skeena
River
An Important event in the history
of the Nine Mile camp is the flotation
of the well known American Boy
group, which is to be developed by
a company now in process of incorporation, says the Omineca Miner.
The corporation is to be styled Harris Mines Limited, the name being
eminently suitable, since the property is already Best known as the
Harris group, the brothers of that
name and their partner, Jack Mul-
lan, being the discoverers and owners of this, the first group located on
the west slope of Nine Mile Mountain. The property consits of eight
claims, and its merits are well known.
Success may be confidently predicted
for the new mining company.
The Miners claims to be not given
to indiscriminate "boosting," but
says in justice to the property in
which the public will soon be given
an opportunity to become Interested
that the American Boy group is one
of the best prospective mines in the
Omineca district, an endorsement
which will be sufficient for those who
are familiar with the prospects of
this country. The owners have
already, developed the property to a
point where more extensive capital is
necessary, and have uncovered four
veins which present great possibilities for the extraction of ore. The
veins all carry silver-lead ores, with
values well above the pay limit.
In connection with the incorporation of the American Boy, the announcement is made that a new mining firm is to be formed In Hazelton,
primarily for the purpose of developing the Marris Mines. The style
of the firm is Rosenthal, Harris &
DeVoin, from which it will be seen
that although the firm is a new one
the members require no introduction
to the people of the district, among
whom their standing is of the best.
Those comprising the firm are G. A.
Rosenthal, who has been here for
twelve years, and was formerly successful in mining in California! W. S.
(Duke) Harris and Hugh A. Harris,
two of the well known and popular
Harris brothers, and L. L. DeVoin.
The three last named gained their
first experience of mining in the
early days of the Rossland camp, and
their experience sinme that time has
been such as to fit them in every
respect to handle the proposition they
have undertaken. Louis DeVoin is
to become office manager of the concern, a position for which be is exceptionally qualified.
Under the guidance of these men
the mine should prosper, and may
be expected to figure as a big shipper when transportation is available.

"However, after all my difficulties, I got what I wanted, and I am

Mineral  in Northern British Columbia Said to He in Good
Paying Quantity
After having travelled 800 miles
through an unexplored section of
Britisii Columbia, where he finally
had to abandon the use of pack
horses and continue the journey on
foot, abandoned by all but one of
the five Indian guides who started
on the trip, Professor R. W. Ostrand
of the department of geology of the
University of New York arrived in
Edmonton /esterday on his way back
to New York to continue his regular
work In college, says the Edmonton
Journal.
Professor Ostrand left New York
City May 1, in the nterests of science to make a geological survey of
the unexplored region and to inspect
the mineral possibilities of the country for a private concern.
With a cook, D. L. Schultz, and
five Indian guides he went by trail
with pack horses to the Cascade
range and the Rockies, and to Ba-
biene,, an Indian village, where the
trip proper began.
"We went up Babiene Valley as
far as Britisii Columbia extends,"
said Professor Ostrand, "across
ranges and divides, and finally had
to send an Indian back with the
horses, as the route became impassable for them after we reached the
summit of the Cascade range. The
Indian guide never returned. Later,
all the excess baggage had to be
discarded, and the men threw away
their guns, but kept their knives, and
I kept an automatic pistol. Provisions later ran short and an Indian
was sentn back to bet part of these
left behind, but he also failed to
return. Then two guides departed
while   we   slept,  leaving   only   one
It Is authoritatively announced
that Sir William Mackenzie (now
paying a visit to Victoria), Sir Donald Mann and their associates have
purchased the rights and interests
in the Okanagan of the Coteau Power Company, this meaning that a
large project under consideration for
some time past for the electrification
of the Okanagan district, and will
now take definite form, and construction of the long hoped for electric road from Shuswap Falls to Vernon be undertaken in the near future. Residents of the district concerned regard the transfer as meaning more than this—as indicating
that Mackenzie & Mann will use this
electrical line when built as an important feeder of their transcontinental system, diverting the trade
and produce of the Okanagan Valley Canadawards instead of to the
States, south of the boundary line.
The Coteau Power Company found
its inception in the efforts of W. C.
Ricardo, G. A. Henderson and other
prominent residents of the Okanagan
to provide a cheap and adequate
meansn of transportation for the
fruit grown in the fertile region
through which the projected electrical will pass, and to furnish cheap
electric power for industrial and
manufacturing purposes. A charter
was obtained some years ago from
the provincial government, and since
then the promoters have been endeavoring to secure the capital necessary to carry forward their big un-
Montreal last winter by Messrs. Ricardo, Henderson, Agur and Aash-
croft, and as a result of the representations, Mr. Nelson, a well
known engineer, came out to investigate and report upon the scheme.
It is understood that his report was
eminently satisfactory; but for various reasons no action was taken, and
this is the first intimation given the
public that Mackenzie & Mann were
interested in the project.
The power for the line will be
generated at Shuswap Falls, about
26 miles from Vernon, and the electric road will pass through White
Valley and Coldstream on to that
city and thence ling up the various
Okanagan towns, proceeding onward
to Enderby on the north and Kelowna on the south. Cheap power
and light are leading features of the
plan, and the great impetus which
it will give to all lines of business
activity is too apparent to require
comment.
It will be remembered that Mackenzie & Mann have repeatedly announced their intention of building
a branch line of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway into the Okanagan from Kamloops, and have received promises from Premier McBride that the government will assist
in this enterprise to the extent accorded for their main line through
the province. The fact that this en-
terprizirig firm of railway builders
have now secured the Chateau charter seems to indicate beyond all
doubt that they have determined to
push forward their entry to theOka-
nagan, and make the electric line a
feeder for their railway.

SURVEYING FOR ROAD
Party Has Gone Out to Locate Probable Line for Railway Extension
From Stewart
C. Hoard, a civil engineer of Victoria, B. C, and a party of explorers
have left to make an exhaustive examination of the country and resources between the valley of the
Bear River and the Peace River on
behalf of the Canadian Northeastern
Railway, whose line has been built
from Stewart to the junction of the
Bear River "and American Creek, a
distance of fourteen miles. The
party will be In the field several
weeks and will intercept another
party working west from the Rocky
Mountains and now In the vicinity of
Fort Connolly, roughly, 150 miles in
the Interior from Stewart. The Information collected will be used as
a basis of a report to be laid before
the provincial cabinet to urge upon
the government the desirability of
assisting the road as a colonization
railway.

PRINCESS   ALICE   COMING
The steamer Princess Alice, built
by Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson at Newcastle-on-Tyne for the
C. P. R. has left Newcastle en route
to Victoria according to a cablegram
received by the C. P. R. office at Victoria. The Princess Alice is being
brought out by Capt. A. A. Lindgren,
who was in command of her sister
liner Prince Adelaide on the voyage
to that city. It is expected that the
new steamer wl'l reach port about
the end of November and after being
renovated and her furnishings gone
over she will be placed In service
on the Victoria-Vancouver route on
a schedule alternating with that of
her sister liner, leaving Vancouver at
midnight, and Victoria at 10 a. m.
With the Princess Alice in service,
together with the Princess Adelaide,
on the direct route between Victoria
and Vancouver, and the steamers
Princess Victoria and Princess Charlotte on the Victoria-Vancouver-Seattle run, the service from Victoria to
the mainland will be a good one,
there being three sailings each way
between Victoria and Vancouver
daily.
The Princess Alice on her trials
held a few days ago maintained a
speed within a decimal of that made
by the Princess Adelaide, both with
oil and coal fuel. The steamer is
equipped with oil burners, but will
making the voyage out burning coal.
The new steamer is practically a
duplicate of the Princess Adelaide,
although a few minor changes have
been made, several improvements being provided in her accommodation
and equipment.
A  WHEAT  MARKET
Grain shippers will be interested
1o learn that the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway has in view the exportation
of wheat and other merchandise in
huge quantities through the Prince
Rupert, B. C, terminals as soon as
this great transcontinental line
reaches the Pacific Coast, says a
Montreal despiach. The management is making every possible arrangement and perfecting every appliance and convenience that will
tend to make Prince Rupert a renowned shipping centre, and in this
movement it is evident that Charles
M. Hays is sanguine of the possibilities of this western point. "We will
ship 100,000 000 bushels of wheat
annually," said Mr. Hays, "from
Prince Rupert to Europe when tho
Panama Canal is open for business.
We will build docks and elevators
at Prince Rupert, our terminus on
the Pacific, and expect to have our
tracks finished so as to handle the
harvest of 1915. We are building a
low grade track by which we can
carry wheat from the prairies of
Western Canada toward both oceans
more economically than any other
road. We wil! be able to deliver
wheat in Liverpool by way of the
Panama Canal from Prince Rupert
at the same cost and almost In the
same time that it now takes to carry
it by way of the Great Lakes and
the Atlantic ports. Our steamships
will be built in England under the
supervision of the board of directors
of the Grand Trunk, and wil! be designed especially for wheat carriers
and for the Panama route. We will
also have a line to the Orient—either
building our own steamers or making
a traffic arrangement with some company already operating on the Pacific. At present the wheat crop of
Western Canada is hurried to Fort
William, Port Arthur and Duluth
during a few weeks that remain between harvest and the close of navigation. Otherwise' it must be held
for six months under storage and Insurance charges in the elevators or
shippi'il hy rail the entire distance to
the Atlantic. I venture to predict,"
concluded Mr. Hays, "thai within the
next decade as much Canadian grain
from Manitoba, Saskatchewan anil
Alberta will rind its way tu Europe
by way of Prince Ruperl as will get.
eeiri   ley  the.  Atlantic  ports."
course, will have to be dredged and
widened, while waterfalls will be
constructed between the two rivers
in the vicinity of Vitebsk. The total
cost is estimated at about $250,000,-
000. One of the results of the enterprise, if completed, will be the
opening up of the north of Europe
to Russian grain supplies on a much
larger scale than is possible at present, and the coal from the Donetz
district will also be made available
for the Baltic provinces and the
Black  Sea  ports.
Other enterprises of the kind now
underconsideratlon by the Douma include the construction of a canal to
connect the River Obi and the River
Kama, one of the largest tributaries
of the Volga, thus providing a suc-
ession of waterways uniting the Caspian Sea with the Arctic Ocean. A
junction is also projected between
the River Petchora, flowing into the
Arctic through European Russia with
the Vitchedga, a tributary of the
Northern Dwina. As the Vitchedga
is already connected by canal with
the Kama, this would provide a second line of communication between
the Arctic, the Volga basin and the
Caspian Sea. Yet another scheme
aims at rendering the Dnieper and
northern Donetz rivers suitable for
navigation by means of a system of
locks.
PLANS  BIG  (ANAL
From time to time projects have
been mooted in Russia for the construction of a canal to connect the
Black Sea and the Baltic, but owing
to a variety of reasons, chiefly financial, the government has been disinclined to take the matter in hand.
Reports are now, however, widely
current to the effect that a syndicate
of French and Russian capitalists
is prepared to carry the scheme
through and that application has been
made with a view to the grant of a
concession. Beginning at Riga and
ending at Kherson, the waterway
will have a total length of 1,600
miles, but the engineering difficulties are not considered serious, as
every advantage will be taken of the
Rivers Dwina and Dnieper, which, of
DERELICTS
Of all the perils which beset ocean
navigation perhaps the most insidious, because the most elusive and
difficult to guard against, is the derelict—the abandoned and almost
submerged but still floating wreck.
When a vessel of stout construction,
particularly if she is built of timber,
is loaded with a cargo that is lighter
than water, she may sink until she
is in the awash condition, and by
virtue of the strength of her hull
may hold together for many years,
floating hither and thither at the
caprice of dind and tide and so constitute a perpetual menace to navigation. The ever-shifting wreck is naturally uncharted, andalthough a vigilant watch by day may suffice to
detect the danger, in the night time
the obstacle is quite invisible, and
should it lie in the direct track of a
ship, a collision  is  unavoidable.
Unquestionably the floating derelict has been answerable for not a
few of the unexplained losses of
staunch and well found ship, instances of which are too many and
too well known to need any recapitulation  here.
The endurance of the derelict and
the extent of its ocean wanderings
are almost unbelievable. Take the
case of the Norwegian bark Crown,
lumber laden, which was abandoned
In a supposedly sinking condition in
mid-Atlantic on December 26, 1909.
In the following May it was reported
as on the edge of the Sargasso Sea,
and at a later date it was sighted
upon the other edge of the sea, having traversed in the Interval 1,100
miles. In the summer of 1910 it
was sighted between Charlestown, S.
C, and Bermuda.
Take again the case of the Fannie
E. Wollston, which was wrecked on
the Jersey Coast, October 15, 1891.
During the following three years the
wreck was frequently sighted, once
off the coast of Africa, and later on
the opposite side of the Atlantic off
the coast of Florida. Finally it dropped entriely out of sight.
Effective  System
Lloyds of London has developed an
effective system for tracing ocean
derelicts, and wherever one is sighted
In any of the seven seas it is reported to headquarters, and means are
taken to intercept and destroy it.
The Seneca, a deservedly popular vessel, was recently built for the Unite!
States revenue cutter service for the
purpose of patrolling the seas contiguous lo the Atlantic Coast and lo-
i'il!ing and destroying both derelicts
and sunken wrecks that are a menace
to navigation.
In destroying derelicts and floating
wreckage the explosive used is gun-
cotton, which is carried In boxes and

mercyry, which is electrically detonated. Cables lead up through a
threaded cap beneath which is a rubber ball, which, as ihe cap is screwed
down, is stretched between them. The
cable forms a watertight joint. Rub-
uer gaskets ijiso serve to make a
tight point for the main cap, which
closes the top of the canister, a
battery is used for firing. The canister described is standard for all explosions, as many of them being used
as is necessary to do the work.
Blowing'  up  Wreck
An example of the destruction of a
large sunken vessel Is the blowing up
of the wreck of the tliree masted
schooner Belle Halliday, which when
loaded with paving stones, was sunk
on Polock. Rip Slue. The hulk was
lying across the tide. To destroy the
wreck a series of mines (canisters)
was slung on a continuous cable,
which was hung between two boats.
The boats were rowed into a position
alongside the wreck with the cable
stretched between them. The cable
was then lowered to the bottom,
when it was swept by the tide in
under the bilges of the ship in a position favorable for doing its work.
The firing cable was then paid out
to a distance of about 800 feet and
the whole charge detonated. The
ship was literally torn to pieces. For
the destruction of the smaller floating obstacles, such as deck houses,
it is generally sufficient to suspend
a single canister beneath the object.
A frequent and dangerous obstruction is the floating mast, which generally Is found bottom upward, with
a portion of the mast showing above
the surface, and the heavier end of
it, containing the heavy masthead
from fittings and gear, floating many
feet below. In this case a mine is
suspended on a heavy ring, which is
placed over the mast and allowed to
slip down to the bottow. The crew
rows off to a distance of several hundred feet, paying out the firing cable
as they go; then, by pressing the
button, the mast is shovered into
splinters.
It should be explained that for the
destruction of the hnull of a ship,
as in the case of the Belle Halliday,
the mines, each of which contain 40
pounds of guncotton, are placed generally about 25 feet apart, and as a
rule about eight mines form the limit
of a single series. Of course, the
weight of the charge varies with the
size and strength of the ship. Thus,
in the case of the Anglo-African
which was stranded four miles south,
half east, of Cape Charles lighthouse,
with her bridge deck awash and only
the mainmast showing, It was necessary to employ 27 of the guncotton
mines to insure her complete destruction.

WITHDREW LICENSE
(Continued From Page One)
After a little discussion, a recess
was taken to allow the city solicitor
and Mr. Fisher, representing the applicant, an opportunity to examine
the application and go into all the
objections,
objections .raised.
After conferring they agreed the
application was not in order and accordingly Mr. Fisher withdrew the
application.
The board then adjourned as a
licencing court until December 13.
NICKEL PLATE'S SHOWING
Famous   Mine  of   the  Interior  Has
Again Paid Usual
Dividend
The directions of the Hedley Gold
Alining Company, operating the famous Nickel Plate mine, have declared the usual quarterly dividend
of 3 per cent for the quarter ending September 30 on the outstanding
capital stock of the company, payable
September 30, 1911, and an additional dividend of 2 per cent, says
the Hedley Gazette. As before remarked, British Columbia's best
mining ad. is the quarterly dividend
of 5 per cent which Camp Hedley
has to its credit. To keep this up,
quarter after quarter, is to present
an argument for the resources of the
camp and province which needs no
further explanation, for it is its own
interpretor. Nevertheless, this dividend does not tell all that is to be
told, and neither the treasury nor
the mine are being robbed to make
this fine showing which has now
gone on with such regularity for so
long a time. On the contrary, a
double reserve Is all the time being
built, up. This consists of cash re-
servo In the treasury and also an
ore reserve In the mine, which at
the present time Is looking better
than ever.
Tlie following notice to stockholders is but another chapter in this
pleasant serial story:

GREAT FISH CENTRE
(Continued From Page One)
ber of practical fiBhing men are interested in the enterprise, which will
be carried on in all departments, attention being given to the local trade
as well as to the sale to outside
points. The company will begin in
a modest way, branching out as the
trade  develops.
Other Plants
Henry Doyle, at Mill Bay or the
Naas, is now erecting a cold storage
plant for the handling of fish. He
has all his plans prepared and is
waiting until the present season
ends, when he will devote attention
to the new plant.
The erection of this will add another to the plants having their outlet through this port. In the Mill
Bay plan will be provision for mild
curing, spring salmon and halibut.
This year the Naas has in common with the Skeena had the greatest season in its history in the matter of salmon curing. The pack will
be limited only by the number of
tins available.
On the Queen Charlotte Islands
fish curing Is being actively prosecuted in lines other than canning.
At Pacofi the company, under Mr.
ilford, is steadily shipping its products out. The completion of the
G. T. P. will mean that the output
from there will find its outlet
through this port. A station is planned by the company for here as soon
as the line is'finished so that fresh
fish wl'l be brought here direct in
the vessels which go out stocked
with ice and will be landed here,
re-icted and sent direct in Iced cars
to their destination.
With the other branches of the
business, shipments will be made
from Pacofi to Prince Rupert for
eastern markets.
At Queen Charlotte City, D. R.
Young's black cod enterprise is being developed and will be tributary
to  this port.
The development in this one industry, fishing, is such in this vicinity that the completion of the
G. T. P. will be followed by a tremendous trade in that branch alone.
There is every reason to believe that
practically all the large concerns doing business in a fishing line anywhere in the north will have to have
a depot here. This will apply to
Vancouver and Seattle firms as well
as those located in the north.
This is Julius F. Rochau, who left
Kansas City, Mo., July, 1910, and
whose relatives desire to get in touch
with him. For any information concerning his whereabouts' and leading
to his location, Charles H. Frye,
Ninth Avenue and Columbia Street,
Seattle, Wash., U. S. A., will pay a
reward of ?200,
If Mr. Rochau sees this, it will be
to his advantage to communicate
with Air. Frye at once, as everything
is all right and there is no reason
why he should not return to his
family immediately.

The Suy Satisfactory' Rang*
Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Alonarch 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 1b 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 buying
a range.
