VOW  OF SILENCE
Alderman Newton Objects to Rules of
the Council Being Enforced-Threat-
ens to Cease Talking.
Early Adjournment of Hoard Following Interpretation of Rules
of Debute
"No member shall speak more
than once to the same question without leave of the council, except in
explanation of a material part of his
speech which may have been misconceived; and in doing so he is not to
introduce new matter. A reply shall
be allowed to a member who has
made a suDstantive motion to the
council, but not to a member who
has moved an order of the day, an
amendment, the previous question,
or an instruction to a committee. No
member, without leave of the council, shall speak to any question, or
in reply, for a longer time than a
quarter of an hour."
"All inquiries shall be in writing
and shall be handed to the clerk of
the council at least two clear days
before the day of the meeting at
which such inquiry shall be put in
writing or handed to the mayor or
other presiding officer at or before
the hour of meeting, and shall be
read by him from the chair."
The above two rules, taken from
the bylaw governing procedure in
the city council, were brought prominently before the members of the
civic governing board last evening
through the medium of a memo from
the mayor setting them forth which
was placed before each member of
the council. Having in mind the long
sessions which the council has had
of late when these rules were nol
adhered to with any approach to a
close observance, the aldermen for
the most part looked about and
smiled as they had the rules brought
to their minds.
But there was one objecting voice
to the practice, and it was Alderman
Newton, who showed he had no intention to submit quietly to recognized rules of procedure. He objected on the first occasion that presented itself and wanted to know If this
rule was to be enforced strictly. If
it were, he thought It a very strange
thing, as It cut off free discussion,
for which he always stood.
His Worship explained that he had
no intention of cutting off any discussion. The rules had been passed
by the council, and he simply called
them to the attention of the board.
He felt that members of the council
did not want to have the sittings prolonged until midnight discussing matters that were not of great importance. The practice had been to discuss until 12 o'clock at night, trivial
matters. He felt it was not In the
public interest to continue this, and
members of the council would not
want it.
Later in the evening, another opportunity presented itself, and Alderman Newton announced that If the
rule were to be enforced, "I'll sit at
this table until the end of the year
without opening my mouth." He then
asked to be excused from further attendance at the board.
His Worship said he had no power to excuse him from attendance.
There was no authority given for
that.
Alderman Newton then relapsed
into silence but on a few occasions
he was prompted to express his opinion in spite of his vow to remain
silent for two months.
The council meeting adjourned
shortly after 10 o'clock, having
transacted Its full quota of business.
SELECT ENGINEER
Mr. McKenzie Is Appointed to Take
Position at Electric Light
Station
The council accepted last evening
the resignation of A. H. Allison as
second engineer at the electric light
station. The question of a successor
then came up. Two men were recommended by the superintendent.
These were Mr. McKenzie and Mr.
Johnston, both qualified engineers.
On behalf of Mr. McKenzie It was
argued that he was a married man,
living in the city. Mr. Johnston was
also a resident, but was unmarried.
A ballot was taken, resulting in
five votes being recorded for Mr. McKenzie and three for Mr. Johnston.
The former was appointed.
AFTER   THE   BATTLE.
ANNUAL MEETING
George   Black   of   Vancouver   Went
South by the Princess May on
Saturday
George Black passed south by the
Princess May Saturday. He was on
his way to Vancouver after the Yukon political campaign, when he rendered valuable assistance to the
member-elect, Dr. Alfred Thompson.
Mr. Black Is an old-timer In the Yukon and It will be remembered that
he went into that part of the Dominion at the same time that Mr.
Congdon, the Liberal candidate, went
in to open his campaign.
Mr. Black was greeted by many
here on his way south and congratulated upon his good service. He
parted company with Dr. Thompson
here. '
 o	
ON WAY TO OTTAWA
Dr. Alfred Thompson, N.P. Paid Visit
to Prince Rupert on South
Trip.
Member for Yukon Has Several Matters to Urge Upon the Dominion Government.
Arriving by the Princess May from
Skagway, Dr. Alfred Thompson, the
member-elect for the Yukon in the
new House of Commons, reached
here on Saturday. He debarked here
here, waiting over for the Camuson
on Sunday, spending about twenty-
four hours as the guest of his brother, J. H. Thompson of this city. The
new member for the Yukon was
greeted here by many of the old-
time Klondikers who are now residents of Prince Rupert.
Dr. Thompson sat in the House of
Commons the parliament previous to
the one which was dissolved a few
months ago. He goes to Ottawa with
several well defined claims to press
upon the government. Foremost
among them is a demand for an improved winter mail service into Dawson. This is something, he points
out, that is felt by every resident,
and should be attended to.
Another matter which he intends
to take up Is in connection with the
mining industry. There are quartz
prospects in the Klondike and with
the .passing of the very rfch placers
encouragement should be given to
those who seek to develop these
quartz propositions. Dr. Thompson
favors the establishment of sampling works, so that the holders of
these quartz propositions might test
the value of the properties. He will
urge this upon the government, and
will endeavor also to have other concessions granted in favor of the
quartz miners in the different parts
of the territory.
The subject of roads in the district will also be urged upon the
authorities at Ottawa. In connection with the subject of a great highway from Mexico In the south to
the Yukon, which has been brought
so prominently forward of late, Dr.
Thompson says that if the road,
which is intended to afford a clear
run for outomobiles from Mexico to
Dawson, it built to the boundaries of
the Yukon, the Territory will see
that it is brought on into Dawson.
The gold output of the Yukon this
year has been about an average. The
Princess May brought south about
the last of the gold shipments.
Sale of Work
The Ladles' Aid of the Presbyterian Church will hold a sale of
aprons, home cooking and candles at
the Church Hall, Fourth Avenue, on
Tuesday afternoon and evening, November 25, from 3 to 10. Tea will

Important Gathering of the Supporters of the Government Is
to lie Held
Tomorrow evening, commencing at
8 o'clock, there will be a meeting of
the Conservative Association in Melntyre Hall. This is the annual gathering of the association and as such
is of more than usual interest.

of members, so that the meeting
should be very largely attended. Foremost in the business to be transacted
is the election of officers for the ensuing year. Delegates to the provincial convention will also be named
at the meeting.
Everyone who is a member for

Appointed   Stenographer
E. Mann was appointed stenographer in the engineer's department by
the council last evening. The salary
was fixed at $80 a month. Alderman
Douglas presented a minority report
against the appointment, urging that
he opposed to additions to the staaff.
Alderman Hilditch said the engineer
had a lot of clerical work to do at
the present time and reported that
the stenographer was absolutely necessary, and the engineer would, as
soon as the need passed for this
official, have him put hack as a lineman as formerly.
COLD WAVE PASSES
Whole Pacific Coast is Suffering From
Unseasonable Weather
Conditions
Winter   Has   Made    Its   Appearance
Here Before tlie Accustomed Time
for   Its   Advent
The whole Pacific slope seems to
be suffering from unseasonable
weather. Prince Rupert has encountered conditions that would have
been more in place two months later.
Similar conditions seems to have prevailed all along the coast.
In Vancouver roofs were broken
down under the heavy fall of wet
snow. Prince Rupert at the same
time was suffering from frost, but
seems now to have come in for its
snow supply. Seattle has had an intensely cold wave.
Along the line of the C. P. R.there
has been a vast amount of trouble
to keep the telegraph line clear, with
the result that the local office has
been handicapped In the handling of
business with the south. The Dominion government line to Ashcroft
has been kept in very good condition.
MAKING   FAST   TIME
A MUSICAL BAND

HAYS GREEK SEWER
Aldei'iiiun   Mot'lssey  Expresses  Some
Fear Relative to the Emptying of It
On the subject of the Hays Creek
sewer, Alderman Morrissey raised a
point at last evening's council meeting. He was afraid that there would
be stoppages from the time after the
sewer empted into the mouth of the
creek that would make the shores
about there a  "pestilential cesspool."
The engineer, being present, explained that he had considered all
the points. The vote provided for
sufficient that if there was any trouble which he did not expect a temporary outlet could be completed to
overcome the difficulty pending tho
G. T. "P. fixing upon its works at the
point.
Alderman Douglas was afraid that
that objection raised, might defeat
the bylaw.
Alderman Kerr pointed out that
Mr. Kelliher, the G. T. P. engineer,
had approved of the plans, so that
it seemed reasonable to suppose that
it would be all right.
Alderman Newton expressed some
fear lest "the stench is going to stagnate."
Alderman Hilditch said this had
been threshed out In all its details
long ago and all these features gone
into fully.
The matter was then dropped.
"In two years through transcontinental trains of the Canadian Northern will be running Into Vancouver.
By December 16 of this year we expect to be able to start a local service from Port Mann to Hope. On
December 15, 1913, our entire line
will be completed from Edmonton to
the coast. We are going to work
day and night to achieve that result."
In these words, Sir William Mackenzie, president of the Canadian
Northern Railway, assured Premier
McBride at Ottawa of the rapidity
with which Canadian Northern plans
are being carried out.
SALE IN EMPRESS
Section 2 Lots Will be Put up at Auction on November
29.
Mr. David H. Hays Has Not Yet Decided   How  to  Continue  Sale
After Thursday
The auction sale of the G. T. P.
lots in Section Two will take place
in the Empress Theatre. This place
has been decided upon by Mr. Hays
in order that all may be as comfortable as it is possible to make them.
The sale begins on Wednesday,
November 29, and will continue over
Thursday. It will be confined to the
days only, no evening sale being
held.
Mr. Hays has not yet received definite news as to what will be done
in the matter of continuing the sale
after Thursday. He has this point
now under consideration with the
head office of his company, but cannot say yet whether it wil continue
along Friday and following days or
will be postponed until the next week
after the arrival of the G. T. P.
steamer.
A USEFUL MAP

the Use of Intending Purchasers of Lots
On Inspection Tour
J. W. Stewart of Foley, Welch &
Stewart, who has been In Prince Rupert for several weeks past, has left
for up the Skeena. He wi'l meet
Mr. Kelliher, the chief engineer of
the G. T. P., and Mr. Schrleber, representing the Dominion government,
who are now approaching Prince Rupert after making a trip from the
end of steel from tbe eastern side of
the Rockies. Mr. Stewart says work
Is going along normally on the
route.
THE MORNING JOURNAL.
A map which will be of inestimable value to intending purchasers of
Lots in Section Two, to be put on the
market on the 29th, has been prepared by Schreiber & Co. It was executed under the eye of J. H. Plllsbury, who has very exact knowledge
of the townsite and it In a position
to carry out the work In perfect
style.
Tho map is prepared to show the
levels of every street and the general topography of the section. The
level of each lot is shown and by the
use of it anyone can arrive at a very
exact knowledge of the section. Blue
prints are being sold now.

of Green & Kennedy of this city.
City of Prince Rupert May Soon Have
its Own Players
Organized.
Move Is Made to Have n Slroirg Band
—City Council  Is Appealed
To   by   Musicians
For some time there has been a
feeling in^he city that a band should
be included among the organizations
of the place. When such it required
it has been necessary to send to one
of the Indian villages for a band
and this in many cases has been exceedingly  awkward.
For some time, former bandsmen,
no wresldent here, have been considering the advisability of starting a
musical organization here. The cost
of instruments will total about
$1,000, but several citizens have expressed a readiness to assist in the
enterprise. Mr. Godson has been selected as instructor, and at a recent
meeting of those interested he was
appointed president, with Lee Baker
secretary. The nucleus of a good
band is already available and have
handed in their names.
Last evening application was made
to the city council for monetary assistance. The application was referred to the Finance Committee,
which will report upon the subject.

PLACE COAL ORDER
Union Transfer Company Is to Provide Supply for the Electric
Light Plant
After considerable trouble In deciding the matter of purchasing coal
for the electric light plant, the council meeting, with the electric light
committee, decided a few days ago
to take the Kelly tender.
The city council last evening adopted the report of the telephone committee, awarding the contract for 225
tons of coal to the Union Transfer
Company.
Some discussion followed the re-
por.t
Alderman Hilditch wanted some
information relative to the matter
and why the recommendation of the
committee was changed.
Alderman Clayton suggested that
Superintendent Love should give the
information he had prepared for the
committee since the decision was
reached. He had figured out from
taking the power generated e Socf
tests of the coal, wliich showed that,
taking the power generated, Rogers
& Black's coal represented 10.02
cents per hour, while Kelly' represented 9.08 cents per hour. There
was a slight advantage in the former.
Alderman Morrissey wanted a definite report upon the question from
some official like Mr. Love.
Alderman Douglas thought the report should be In hand before the
report should  be adopted.
Alderman Hilditch thought the
committee was worthy rrf a vote of
censure.
Alderman Kerr said the committee was but obeying the whole council In its action.
The report was adopted.

In an endeavor to serve the city of Prince Itupert to the best of
our ability, The Journal lias appeared regularly as ■*. twlce-o-week
paper for nearly ii year and a half. We have decided, ill view of the
development of the place, thai the time has arrived when the paper
should appear more frequently, and accordingly we will convert Tho
Journal into u daily paper, appearing in the morning.
The public of Prince Itupert have in the past been very kind
towards The .loiirmil. Our services have been appreciated by all
classes in the community until the |»iper holds li very enviable place
ns a medium of publicity. Our aim will be to live up to the standard that has been sel in the past and we ask the patronage of the
public in our efforts to give the city a paper worthy of the place.
There are many obstacles in the way of running a newspaper in
a new city, but in the past we have found the citizens very indulgent with respect lo any shortcomings due to the difficulties that
are constantly met with.
The Journal ns a daily will puisne a -.iiiiil.ee policy to that which
has been followed in i.ie past. It is for Prince Rupert, first, last,
and always. Anything that means the upbuilding of the city, or tile
bettering of conditions, will  find hearty support from Tine Journal.
Within ii few days' time the morning edition will appear. \\v
ask a kindly reception to it from the reading nnd advertising public
and  in so wishing We led sine,  from  our knowledge of the people
of Prince Rupert, Hint we will not be disappointed.

At Work on the Canal
Interviewed in reference to the gigantic task of the United States in
building the Panama Canal, D. D.
Gaillard, one of the seven high commissioners of construction on the
Panama Canal appointed by the late
President Roosevelt, recently gave a
spirited account of the work. Besides his official capacity as administrative commissioner, he is division
engineer of the Central Division, containing Culelira Cut and others of
the most difficult engineering problems of the canal. He bad also under his elirect personal control a
working army of upwards of 10,000
men.
"It is curious enough," he said,
"that the great majority of these
men are British subjects. Out of
27,000 workers employed on the
actual digging of the canal 18,000 at
least are West Indian negoes, and
of these the vast majority come from
islands like Jamaica, under Britisii
rule. So, strange as It may seem,'
the Panama Canal is practically being dug by  British  subjects."
"How long do you think it will be
before the canal is finished?"
"Well, I should not be at all surprised if the lock gates were in position in less than two years from
today. That is, of course, quite ignoring any labor disturbances that
may occur in the meantime. But at
any rate, we are very much ahead of
our schedule. The official date for
getting the locks in piace, which
means adding the finishing touch to
the canal, is now June 1, 1913. Judging from the progress made in my
own division, which is by far the most
difficult, I believe we shall be ready
even before then. Still, that does
not mean that the formal date for
throwing the canal open to the world
will be shifted forward from January 1, 1915. If we are so lucky as
to get things ready before schedule
time we shall devote the intervening
time to drilling the canal employees,
so as to be sure there will be no
hitch in the administration when the
way is open for good. It is extremely possible that our own ships will
be let through the canal for six or
seven months before the formal opening, but that will be only In the shape
of practising. When the big naval
review comes off on New Year's Day,
1915, we want everything to be
ready and waiting—but more than
that, we want our men well trained
and our facilities well tested and
seasoned against the rushe that is to
come."
"Is not your system of government
in the Canal Zone one of the most
autocratic in the world?"
"It most certainly is, and I believe
it is one of the most successful. We
started with one of the most unhealthy belts of country on the face
of the globe, and we have brought
healthy conditions In a few years
quite up to the standard of civilization. Panama is not a health resort
yet, but we have banished malaria
and yellow fever, 1 hope, for ever.
Why, look at me, I've been there
four years and a half since my appointment, and I have not had one
sick day, nor have my wife and son
either. And ten years ago the climate was so bad that people were
dying off like flies. But that is not
the most interesting part of Panama
government," continued Mr. Gaillard,
warming up with true American enthusiasm. "It's the system. You
may call it State Socialism, or you
may call it autocarcy; I suppose it
has a little of both in it. Take the
housing, for instance. In Panama
everybody has his own house. It Is
built by the government on generous
lines, with piazza, large rooms, electric light, pure water, and the best
of santitatlon. There is no rent to
pay to anyone, no mater bills, no
taxes. For a nominal fee the government puts in a telephone. Medical attendance may be had for the
asking, and hospitals, which 1 am
convinced are the best In the world,
are also free to all. The government also controls and operates the
railway across the Isthmus, and
spends Its profit on reducing fares
and Improving equipment." ,
"But what diversions are there?
Are there any music halls or amusement parks?"
"No, there are no theatres. That
is one defect, undoubtedly. There is
an opera house In Panama, subsidized by tho Panama government, but
though It Is very good it only runs
for a month or so in the year. Our
real diversions are also provided by
the State. In every town or settlement there Is a big clubhouse, fitted up with a gymnasium, billiard
and pool rooms, bowling alleys, a library, reading room, lecture hall,
and all the facilities that go to make
a good, homelike club. These have
been taken over, on the invitation
of the government, by the Young
Men's Christian Association, but are
run   in   quite  a   broad   and   nonsec-
tarion manner. Dances, for instance,
are frequent, and receptions, parties,
and other festivities find here a centre that is of the utmost value to the
social life of the community.
"But the work is the greatest diversion of all," continued Mr. Gaillard, earnestly; "it gets a grip on
you somehow. Every night the figures are chalked up all over the Isthmus as to hoy many cubic feet have
been dug that day. There are visible
signs everywhere of things straightening out and moving ahead. And
as far as possible the administration
and the workmen have .been kept on
terms of friendly co-operation. With
all this huge army of men there have
been only two Incidents that could
be called labor troubles. In both instances, the boilermakers and shovellers involved walked out peaceably.
Intricate machinery of great value
was left untouched, not a penny's
worth of property was damaged. And
in the end, when he had refused to
advance their wages from a little
over £45 a month to £60 a month,
and had filled their places with new
men, most of the old workmen came
back. I took back over two-thirds
of those who struck under me without a word of censure.
"Now, before you go, just let me
give you a few figures, so you will
know where we stand today. Besides
the 30 million cubic yards of excavation we used from the old French
scheme, we have to our credit, to July
1, 1911, just 143 million cubic yards
of Isthmus dirt. The total amount
which had to be excavated was 183
million cubic yards; so you see we
have only 40 millions left. In other
words, figuring in actual cubic yards
of dirt removed, we finished 78 per
cent of the Panama Canal. Taking
the two most difficult parts of the
whole enterprise, the Culebra Cut
and the Gatun Dam, we are just 77
per cent through the one and over
70 per cent through the other. Such
results as there make, the most skeptical feel that the end Is in sight
and will be arrived at well under the
promised time.
"I cannot say much about fortification—that is not in my line," concluded Commissioner Gaillard, mod-
stly; "but I can tell you this: Someone has got to fortify Panama. We
cannot leave a trade route that will
alter commerce more than any other
purely man-made factor in history to
the tender mercies of all nations.
Still, we realize also our great obligations to countries like Great Britain, whose commerce will probable
constitute the bulk of the traffic
the canal. But with the manifestly
imminent Anglo-American understanding as a significant factor I am
sure that sensible arbitration will
prevent the canal from being an apple of discord either in the near or
the remote future."

!    ITALIAN MINISTER    *
* *
**************************
The Marquis di San Giullano, the
present Italian minister for foreign
affairs, and the author and prosecutor of the campaign against Tripoli,
is perhaps better known In London
than any other European capital. The
two years or so that he recently spent
there as ambassador gave Londoners
an opportunity of studying at close
range the strongest and best equipped personality that has served the
Italian government since the fall of
Crispi. The marquis is a Sicilian
nobleman of Norman descent, some
fifty-eight years old, a senator of the
kingdom, and thus happily removed
from the exigencies of electioneering,
and a confirmed student of foreign
affairs. In nearly thirty years of
political life he has held but four
offices. After serving as under secretary in the ministry of agriculture
and in the foreign office, he accepted
the portfolio of postmaster generaf|
In the Pelloux cabinet of 1899-1900.
But he did not attain to the post
to which his Instincts and studies
had always Inclined him, and for
which his talents marked him out,
until towards the end of 1905, when
the Fortls cabinet was reconstituted,
and he became minister for foreign
affairs.
The appointment was not well received either in Vienna or Berlin.
The Marquis di San Giullano knew
far too much for the comfort of his
country's allies. Foreign and colonial qestions have been his hobby
almost from boyhood; he has something of Lord Curzon's old passion
for investigating them on the spot
and at first hand; his range of political Interests and information is
hardly inferior to that of the late
Sir Charles Dllke. Albania, the Balkans, the Trentlno, Tripoli, Erythea,
all the districts, in fact, which are
the special concern of the Italian foreign  office,  he has  visited  and  ex
plored, not as a mere sightseer, but,
as bis admirable writings show, as a
keen and comprehensive student of
men and affairs.
With a Sicilian quickness of mind,
and a Rooseveltian power of acquisitiveness, the marquis united a strong
and sober judgment, and a detachment not unlike Lord Rosebery's
from tbe ordinary stress of party
politics. He is the first Italian foreign minister of the last two decades
who can be said to have a mind of
his own, and to be really an expert
In the questions that come before
him. Ills predecessors have been little more than royal secretaries. They
have followed the line of least resistance, and allowed the practical
direction of affairs to rest with the
king—an arrangement which has
worked well.
For good or 111, however, it Is Impossible for tbe Marquis di San Giu-
liano to efface himself in that way.
He is foreign secretary in fact as well
as name, a confident, resolute man
of pronounced individuality, and
much more used to framing his own
policies and opinion than accepting
them from someone else. In Vienna
he is suspected of belonging to the
class of men "who have been there
and ought to know." Men of that
class have usually a policy of their
own, and as a rule that policy is
of the "forward" school. The Italian
foreign minister has seen with his
own eyes the efforts of Austria to
suppress Italian sympathies and nationality in the Trentina and Trieste, and to push her dominion along
the eastern coast of the Adriatic and
in the Balkans. In the question of
Tripoli, where Italian interests are
very largely Sicilian interests, the
marquis a Sicilian himself, has always been peculiarly concerned. He
knows every aspect of it, physical as
well as political, and his present
course of action is the outcome of
views long since formed and often
expressed, both on paper and in conversation.

MINES SHOW WELL
Five  Fingers  Coal  Company  Closes
Good Season
George J. Milton, manager of the
Five Fingers Coal Company, operating at Five Fingers and Tantalus on
the Yukon River between this place
and Dawson, was here last week on
his way to his home in St. Paul,
where he will spend the winter, says
the Whitehorse Star.
Mr. Muton expressed himself as
being well pleased with the work
done at the mines this season and
with the prospects for next year, he
having secured contracts at Dawson
among the big companies operating
at that place for all the output of
the coal mines for the next two years,
the growing scarcity of wood for
fuel in that part of the territory
making the use of coal both a matter of necessity and economy.
As the mines of which Mr. Milton is manager are further developed
the quality of the output has steadily Increased and the Five Fingers
and Tantalus coal will compare with
that of the best mined in the west.
Mr. Milton left three or four men
at the mines who will continue development work throughout the winter. He, himself, will return in
March, when the work of actual mining will be resumed with a largely
Increased force of men.

f Leprosy Cure  {
* *
**************************
If newspaper reports may be credited, a Japanese scientist has discovered a new and effective treatment for leprosy, the basis of which
is the application of "tetrod toxin,"
a substance extracted from the poisonous elements of the globe fish,
known In Japan as fugu. The scientist referred to is Dr. Tahara, president of the Tokio Hygenis Laboratory.
Dr. Tahara's special studies in this
direction date from twenty years ago,
after his return from Europe. He
devoted himself more particularly to
the investigation of the poison obtained In the globe fish.. After much
labor he succeeded in extracting the
poison elements from the fish, and
from this prepared a pure white,
tasteless and odorless powder, soluble in water, which he named tetrod
toxin. Tests showed that four milligrams of powder constituted a .fatal
dose in the case of rabbits and it
was estimated that 200 milligrams
would put a man to death. This discovery was made public seventeen
years ago, but Dr. Tahara continued
his studies, and In 1909 published
a further report.
Dr. Tahara represented Japan at
the . Brussels Hygenic Conference
last year and on that occasion submitted a report of his discovery of
the toxin, which attracted a good
deal of attention in the scientific
world. A German chemical manufacturing company subjected the
toxin to a series of tests, whence it
was concluded that it was too poisonous to be employed for medical
purposes. Little more was heard
about the toxin until recently, when
it was applied to the treatment of
leprosy by Messrs. Yoshikawa and
Yamazaki, younger medical students
of Osaka Higher Medical School,
with,  it is claimed, brilliant results.
It appears that a few months previously a young leper patient entered
the Osaka hospital where these two
young students were on duty, and
asked fo be treated with the globe
fish poison, which, he said, he had
heard was efficacious In the cure of
this disease. He was fully aware of
the danger involved, but was willing
to run the risk, and, as a matter of
fact, found himself greatly relieved
by the treatment.
The young students took careful
note of the case and resolved to pursue their inquiries witn a view to
the systematic application of the tetrod toxin to the cure of leprosy.
A quantity of the medicine was
prepared in confirmlty with Dr. Tahara's report, and after this had been
successfully tested on animals the
two young men began to treat human patients, under the guidance of
Dr. Sakurane. In one instance, the
toxin was administered to eight pa-
tlens suffering from various forms of
nervous leprosy. The quantity applied was 0.01 gramme, which was
injected subcutaneously in five to
eleven portions. So effective was
this treatment that after five injections a patient who had been suffering intense pain for seven months
experienced instant relief and was
able to sleep at night, and in other
cases a marked improvement in the
symptoms was recorded. The toxin
was further applied to patients suffering from nervous ailments, and
again with satisfactory results.
It is as yet too soon to say that the
toxin will completely cure leprosy,
but it is at least certain that it can
be employed on human beings without fatal effect and as an auxiliary
agent. Investgiations are being continued with official co-operation. Mr.
Kobayyashi, director of .the Hygenio
Bureau of the Home Office, has issued to the Tokio and other leper
asylums instructions to conduct experiments in the new treatment, and
small quantities of the toxin have
been distributed for the purpose. The
results of these experiments will be
published from time to time.

HIGH DISTINCTION
British  Columbia's  Winning of the
Stillivell Trophy at New York Is
Valuable Advertisement
By winning the Stillwell Trophy
and $1,000 at the Great Pan- American Exhibition at New York rBitish
Columbia has earned the reputation
of growing the best potatoes on the
North American continent. The exhibit which gained this award consisted of 101 varieties drawn from
all sections of the province, aggregating in weight about one and a half
tons.
The credit for the display rests entirely with the department of agriculture. The entire province was
scoured to secure the finest specimens and W. E. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, and those who assisted him in the task deserve the
highest   praise   for   the   new   honor
which they have won for the province.
The exh'bit was in charge of Asa-
hel Smith, the "Potato King" of
British Columbia, who brought with
him to New York as assistants In
charge of the display, Stuart Wade,
New Westminster's publicity agent,
and H. McClure Johnson of Vernon.
The potatoes were secured from
the Okanagan, the Kootenays and the
Fraser Valley through the energies
of the three gentlemen named acting under instructions from the depart of agriculture, while S. H. Lawrence covered the Ashcroft and Salmon Arm districts. They were packed in the market building at New
Westminster in boxes totalling thirty
pounds each and eacn specimen was
wrapped and packed the same manner as apples, so as to Insure their,
arriving at their destination in the
best condition.
That the potato industry of the
province, which is admittedly carried
on in a slipshod manner, should
have been successful in winning the
great Stillwell Trophy is a wonderful ecomiuni on the productivity of
British Columbia's soil. The provincial exhibit was in competition with
carefully selected displays from all
agricultural areas of the continent.
It is only a few month since the idea
was first mooted that British Columbia should compete so that there
was nothing done in the way of preparation, and the specimens were selected just as they are grown year
in and year out in the province.

CEMETERY  NEEDED
The point raised by Alderman
Clayton at the council last evening,
that there was an absolute need for
immediate action in getting the cemetery ready for use, was well taken.
It seemed to appeal to all members
of the council, and It is evident that
very soon there will be provision
made for using the city burying
ground.
Fortunately, there are not many
deaths in Rupert in proportion to the
population. The conditions in connection with the burial of the dead
at Garden Island are, to say the least,
most undesirable. The cemetery
cannot be got ready too soon.
LOT VALUES.
The News, ever ready to find some
ground for attack upon-the Provincial Government, charges now that
the price asked of the city for the
Market Square lots was an exorbitant
one. This is not correct. Had the
government offered the lots to any
private buyer at the price they were
offered the city they would have
been snapped up witnout a second
thought. While there are five lots
in the block offered, one of the lots
has a frontage of 110 feet, making
210 feet of a total frontage, so that
less than $120 a front foot was
askpd for the lots, without including
the frontages of 100 feet each on
the regular roadways on the sides.
With the commanding position which
the block occupies it was worth
probably double what the government asked for it—$25 000. The
situation is one of the most commanding in the city and the day will
likely come when the city will be
sorry that the opportunity was not
embraced to secure it. However,
somemembers of the council wished
an appeal to the ratepayers on this
point and by the obstruction methods the opportunity passed.
The settlement with the G. T. P.
made by the council was of such a
character that it brought into the
city's possession most valuable lands,
thus removing the absolute necessity
for the acquisition of this piece of
land. The government seemed to
realize that with such a settlement
and the secunng of what was a most
valuable area of land there was no
longer any necessity for holding this
open to the municipality at a nominal figure. It accordingly took the
lots at the. Market Place off the
market as far as the city was concerned.
While, as a matter of policy on
the party of the city it may be questioned whether it would have been
expedient to buy land when it had
property of its own on which to build
even if not quite as advantageously
situated, it cannot surely be advanced that the government sought
to hold up the city on the price
asked.

In Ontario, N. W. Rowell, K. C, has
issued a manifesto enunciating the
platform upon which he will appeal
to the electors In the approaching
Oniario elections. He promises these
these reforms:
"The cr atlon of a department of
colonization and Immigration, with a
cabinet minister at Its head, to promote sett'ement and development of
Northern Ontario; encouraging of
mining by reducing prospectors' and
recording fees and providing for Increased facilities for mining titles
and securing an eight-hour day for
miners; securing of a suitable port
In Ontario territory on the Hudson
Bay for ocean going steamers; appointment of a royal commission to
investigate the decline in rural population and to suggest remedial legislation; amendment of the assessment
act to permit municipalities to partially or wholly exempt Improvements
from taxation; taxation of railway
properties to their full value; more
liberal grants to primary and technical education; increased powers
for the Ontario and municipal railway board; regulation of trusts and
mergers; abo'illon of the spoils system  and  creation  of a  civil service
commission; prohibition of campaign
contributions from corporations under provincial jurisdiction; cumpul-
sory publication of all campaign contributions and the appointment of a
public prosecutor in election trials as
in England."
Mr. Rowell pledges his party to
the principle of public ownership and
operation of all public utilities, especially water powers, and to the acquisition and operation of the telephone lines. There are many of the
proposals of the Liberal leader which
have already been promised by the
government.
The platform is by no means as
sweeping as was expected from forecasts.

TO   UTILIZE   RAINFALL
A  Remarkable Plan Which Will Go
Into Effect in  India
Because there is no regularity of
the amount of water in the rivers of
India, power from them for Industrial purposes cannot be depended
upon. During the monsoon season,
from the middle of June to the middle of September, the average rainfall at Lanoull, on the west coast,
is 175 Inches. During the other nine
months there is scarcely any rain.
A plan was conceived some time ago
to store the water and utilize it for
industrial purposes. After a thorough investigation by engineers, a
large capital was raised and a power
supply company has been incorporated.
It has been planned to erect three
lakes or reservoirs. The Lanouli
reservoir, which will store water to
be used during the long breaks of
rainfall In monsoon seasons, will
have a capacity of 380,000,000 cubic feet. The Walkan Lake will be
formed between two spurs of hills.
Its area will be two and a half square
miles', with a capacity of 2,600.000
feet of water.
The third reservoir will be constructed beyond Walkhan Lake, with
which it will be connected by a tunned nearly a mile long running
through the dividing ridges of steep
hills, which will form a watershed
1,200 feet above the level of the valley. This reservoir will have an area
of nearly five square miles, with a
capacity of 7,000,000,000 cubic feet
of water, which, after traversing a
distance of four miles, will be led
through masonary ducts from the
lakes to the fore bay, 2,040 feet
above the sea level. There it will
enter pipes and run down steep
slopes and precipies to Khopoli,
where the generating station will be
located 200 feet above sea level. This
generating station is 0 miles from
Bombay, where the electric energy,
estimated at 40,000 horse power,
will be used for manufacturing purposes.
EAT WITH FINGERS
Three   Celebrated   English    Doctors
Advise Savage Traits to Avert
Indigestion
Devour your food "like a lion"—
and you banish indigestion. This advice, which controverts the- well
known maxim of "Eat your food
slowly, ' is the considered opinion of
three London doctors as to the best
cure for inability to eat a square
meal.
Such an unorthodox mode of dealing with dyspepsia was first suggested by a doctor in a spirit of frolic,
but on talking the matter over with
a Harley Street specialist, and also
with a family doctor with a large
London practice, it was found that
doctors scout the suggestion that
that there is anything funny in it
at all,
"It is a most extraordinary thing,"
the specialist said, "but I find that
the patient who is allowed to eat
chicken by pic-king it up with his
lingers Is the far better able to digest
his food than is the invalid who is
worried by a  knife and  fork.
"A great deal of decorous formality
In eating makes for bad difestlon.
Eat with the fingers like a healthy
savage, and you will digest your food
like the savage—at any rate for a
lime, until the novelty has worn off.
"Probably after the novelty wears
off the good effect will not be so
marked, but a return to dainty feeding would then have the same effect
as the other method had.
"The more like an animal you eat
the more like an animal will your
alimentary system behave Itself, and
the better It will be for your general
health.
"If a man takes his meat In his
fingers he can pick it with more relish," the other doctor said. "Children, whose instincts are often very
sound, love to eat their food held
in their fingers, and they are right."
 o	
"Is your child in bed by 8 every
evening?"
'Technically, yes. We begin arguing about that time."
CONSUMPTION RISKS
Revelations     Respecting     Domestic
Pets and Tuberculosis
An Inquiry made recently amongst
the veterinary surgeons of the west-
end of London brought out some interesting facts as to domestic pets
and tuberculosis. It will be remembered that certain cases were reported in which it was said that the pet
dog might become a serious domestic
peril. There is no doubt that under
such circumstances he may carry the
trouble he has contracted and be an
effective agent In propagating consumption.
But it appears that the dog is
reaily very innocent, r.rs position as
the friend of man is not in the least
invalidated by recent revelations. A
representative of the Standard saw
one of the leading veterinary surgeons recently, and asked him his
opinion on the subject. It was most
freely given. In answer to the question, "How often do you find tuberculosis in dogs?" he answered that
it was about one in a thousand. "But
you must remember that I am talking
only about dogs whose post mortem
I have personally undertaken. In almost every case it has been a very
old dog, a pet that has outgrown its
usefulness.
"Any animal that dies In our establishment undergoes a post mortem examination, and any doubtful
cases are sent for bacteriological examination at the Royal Veterinary
College."
"What kind of tuberculosis do you
find in dogs?"
"It is almost always of a general
type," he answered. "The lungs and
the mesenteric glands, and occas-
sionally rthe liver, may be affected.
The other glands, as you probably
know, are so small in the dog that
we don't often worry much about
them. I think the power the dog
displays in resisting consumption is
really wonderful. In my practice
many dogs, even old dogs, are
brought to me from homes where I
know there Is human tuberculosis.
The dogs contract nothing until old
age. I honestly believe that dogs
suffer most of the harm from human
infection. Human beings seldom get
it back from dogs, excepting under
special circumstances."
A chance question brought an answer that threw a new light on the
subject.
"I suppose that only the most valuable cats are ever brought to you?
No ordinary cat would be worth the
fee of an expert?"
"I ratner think," he answered,
"that we learn more from cats than
dogs. Occasionally someone brings
in an emaciated cat which has been
an old friend, and must be destroyed.
Dogs are brought in also after the
same fashion. In every case we make
a post mortem examination, and send
portions for bacterilolglcal testing to
the Veterinary College. It Is more
often the cat that has consumption
than the dog."
"Is the dog a real danger?"
"We examine many, but although
we have no fear of living with either
animal, we prefer the dog."
 o	
IN KING'S ABSENCE
to Hanover, his constant practice was
to appoint a commission of lords justices with power to summan and hold
privy councils for the transaction of
any state business that needed the
sovereign's sanction, and could not
await his return. When Queen Victoria was away at Cannes a commission was sometimes appointed in the
same way, for although the Prince
of Wales (King Edward) ordinarily
acted for his mother, he was formally appointed in exactly the same
way as lords justices were commissioned. In the late reign there were
at least half a doben occasions on
which a commission was appointed
for precisely similar purposes, and
in this case also the Prince of Wales
tKing George) acted for the sovereign. In the present instance there
will be resort to this ancient and
convenient practice, but the personnel of the commission has not been
settled. As the Prince of Wales is
a minor, it is highly probable the
commissioners will be the lord chan-
ce'-or, the prime minister and the
lord president of the Council, and
they will have power to summon and
hold such meetings of the privy council as may be found necessary during the Aing's absence In November.
His Majesty departs on November 11.
There has been an Impression In
London that arrangements for the
forthcoming prolonged absence of
the King from London will involve
constitutional questions, and reference has been made to the Regency
Act. This act, passed in 1910, is
intended to provide solely for the
contingency of the demise of the
Crown and does not affect in any
way a case of temporal absence of
the monarch, nor is any grave constitutional question involved in the
arrangements for covering the period
of the visit to India, but simply the
application of the well established,
well recognlzeci, simp'e practice.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
FIRST ELECTION
R. B. McMicking Tells of the Scenes Connected With Cariboo's Selection
of Member
Interesting Story of Early Days Told
by One Who Was on
tlie Ground
Here is the amusing story of the
first election held in British Columbia after its confederation with the
rest of Canada, on July 1, 1871. It
was told the writer by one of Victoria's best known pioneer settlers,
Mr. R. B. McMicking, who was an
eyewitness of the extraordinary
events here set forth. Under the
terms of the Canadian Confederation,
British Columbia was given a representation of three senators and six
commoners in the federal councils.
It was in December, 1871, that the
first election was to be held in the
town of Yale, to elect a representative
for that constituency in the Canadian
House of Commons. Our old friend,
who was one of those plucky pioneers who walked from Fort Garry
(now Winnipeg) in to the Cariboo
during the gold rush of '62—had
gone to Yale on government business
after a few days before the date on
which the elections were fixed to take
place. On the morning of nomination day, Mr. McMicking chanced to
drop into the office of the magistrate, the late Mr. A. T. Bushby—
an old friend of his and a gentleman
of culture and rare social repute
whom to know was to admire and
respect.
The morning was a cold one. Cold
Is a bad habit of that locality in that
particular season, for Yale lies exposed to the north wind as it blows
up from the deep gorge In the mountains, a mile distant, through which
the Fraser flowB to the sea. In one
corner of the department of Justice
that eventful morning a tin stove
was making heroic, though unsuccessful efforts to warm the atmosphere. On either side of the struggling stove, with their feet irrev-
ently upon its tin top, sat Magistrate
Bushby and Mr. McMicking in an
attitude of poised resignation. They
were endeavoring to help the stove
raise the temperature by a heated
discussion on some passing events,
when the magistrate, who was also
the returning officer, said suddenly:
"I quite forgot this is nomination
day, and by the way, it's just about
the hour! Wait a minute, McMicking, while I instruct the constable
to stir up the electors!"
So saying, Mr. Bushby stepped to
the door, hailing the solitary peace-
preserver and involuntary election
agent, called out: "This is nomination day. You know it'B the election,
and its almost time to receive nominations. Hurry off down town, beat
up some voters. Be quick, or it
looks aB if there'll be no election for
Yale. Meantime, I'll read the writ
to those present—Br, that is—a—to
my friend here!"
Off buBtles the constable to canvass electors, while the worthy magistrate, even an exceedingly quick
spoken person, began his "Oyes!
Oyes!" at rate that would have baffled the slickest shorthand writer
that ever broke a record on his pencil.
It was a great, if breathless, performance, and just as he had fairly
finished reading the rigmarole, the
constable—equally breathless with
unaccustomed haste, returned leading by the collar two puzzled looking
voters, who seemed in doubt whether
they had been arrested or whether
they were only to vote. The triumphant amateur election-agent explained that these were the only
electors he could "induce" to come
out. The first ot this rare species of
privileged settler he had encountered said it was too cold for such tomfoolery, and elected—to stay by his
fire side. Two of these, we had
found further on In his search, were
hotly contesting a game of pool, and
consigned both the policeman and
the election to the bottom pocket. A
third group of electors he had found
craning their necks over a table, intent upon a game of chance. These
politely declined the constable's kind
invitation to step outside and vote,
upon the plea that there was "nothing In It." The two present represented the entire political "pool";
none of the other qualified electeors
seeming to rcognize that such an
event as the first Federal election
could come but one in their lifetime.
There, however, were the two (or
three) gathered together—they had
had the advantage of being conveyed
to the "poll"—and after eyeing each
other and their surroundings suspiciously for a few minutes—as if to
see what charge was to be preferred
against them—one of them said that
he supposed the first thing necessary
was to hear the writ read.
Here was a crisis! The last real
estate was verily worse than the first.
Here was the free and Independent
voters of Yale ready to vote. But
where were the candidates This was
a more trying stage than any that
had been reached hitherto in the "exciting events" that was to precede
the epoch-making election of Yale's
first representative to the new Federal Parliament. The two electors
had barely been prepared to vote
when they were called upon to fulfil
a momentous and responsible act of
selecting a candidate or candidates
to adorn the honor roll. Both confessed they had not thought of the
election itself, let alone of any candidate; and still less of playing so
foremost a part in the election.
Several names were hurriedly canvassed. Mr. Bushby as returning officer was not eligible. Mr. McMicking declined on the ground that he
had already sufficient troubles of his
own. The constable said he could
barely look after himself, let alone
the constituency. Neither wished to
nominate the other, apparently, and
neither dared to nominate himself.
No Liberal precedents in the provincial assembly had then been created.
The magistrate and returning officer had exhausted his imagination,
when one of the electors remembered
that he had heard the name ot a
Captain noughton, an ex-army officer who was now ranching "somewhere in the interior," mentioned as
a possible candidate. He would not
be likely, indeed, he could not now
object. None—that is to say, neither—of the voters seemed to know
him, but the more they canvassed
the situation the more convinced they
became that "Houghton was the man
for Yale." Besides, the thought that
that his nomination would provide
a "way out" of the difficulty—and
out of that co'd room—added we'ght
to the opinion of the electorate.
"I beg to nominate Captain Houghton," ventured one, after a painful
silence.
I beg to second that gentleman's
nomination," echoed his friend with
a new-born confidence in his voice
that seemed to challenge opposition.
"Good!" ejaculated Mr. Bushby as,
with a twinkle in his eye, he gravely
surveyed the room, and said, "Are
there any other nominations?"
Neither Mr. McMicking nor the
constable spoke—and not being electors, It wouldn't have mattered much
if they had. i After the clock had
ticked off a few seconds of suspended animation, the returning officer,
with a solemnity fitting to the occasion, declared Captain Houghton to
have been duly elected by acclamation as the first representative of
Yale in the Canadian House of Commons.
By this time the proposer, a young
man of good parts, who was closing
up an embarrassed firm's affairs
prior to searching for a fresh billet,
seemed well pleased with his part
in inaugurating a new political epoch.
But just as he was preparing to make
an impressive exit, the seconded
quietly inquired the reason he had
failed to court the honor himself.
As the chance he had missed dawned
on the young man, his counteance
fell to zero, and with a muttered
"D—-! I never thought of that," he
crammed his hat on his head and
strode home.
The electorate of Yale had dispersed after electing Captain
Houghton as their first representative to the first Dominion Parliament. The magistrate and Mr. McMicking had resumed their stove-
hugging postures, and barely ha'f
an hour had gone by when the latch
was lifted, and a lone cold elector appeared In the doorway. He had just
strolled In to Inquire—as he expressed It—If this "shouldn't be
election day." But he noticed nothing unusual In the saloons, but like
the true Scot, he "haed his doots."
Mr. Bushby's long experience In
sifting evidence and weighing witnesses seemed to make him say to
himself as he faced his inqulrltor:
"Now, here is one of those strdy sob-
ed citizens, who cannot convince
convince themselves that It is possible to hold an election without
something being done crookedly. He's
here with the determination to nose
it out whether it exists or not." But
to the elector he merely smiled blandly, and said, "Oh, yes! this Is election day."
Voter: "Well, Isn't it time to
hold It?"
Magistrate: "Quite time. The hour
was 11 o'clock. It's all over. You're
too late."
Voter (suspiciously): "Were there
many here?"
Magistrate (with obvious caution):   "Oh, quite a few."
Voter: "Um!    Who's elected?"
Magistrate: "Oh, let me see-er-oh!
yes! Captain Houghton was elected,
by acclamation."

Voter (satisfied that the magistrate is eager to furnish all the information he can, interrupts): "Oh,
it's all right. It suits me well enough.
I don't know him, but I s'pose he'll
do."
And with the receiving officer's
regret that he could not have got
there earlier—when history might
have been very different—the solitary independent elector, who had
unconsciously represented the total
combined interest of that large constituency in the choice of a Parliamentary representative, wandered
disappointedly away. With his departure the curtain dropped on what
surely deserves to be remembered,
if remembered at all, as the most
historic and unique election since
British Columbia gave up its
"crown" to share in the still greater
glory of an united Canada.
It only remains to be added that
although Captain Houghton chanced
to be unknown to the three who
voted, or came to vote at that memorable election, he was well known
and well esteemed to those less remote from his habitation in the Okanagan as a genial gentleman of conspicuous ability and scholarly attainments. He served as member
for Yale for one or two sessions,
by acceptably proving himself a conscientious and earnest representative
until he was made deputy adjutant
general of British Columbia, with the
rank of lieutenant colonel. The vacant seat in the Canadian Commons
was contested by the late "Doc"
Chisholm and Mr. (now the Honorable) Edgar Dewdney, the latter's
success marking his start on a distinguished parliamentary life. Col.
Houghton died some twelve years
ago, and of the small group that took
part in this political comedy of the
seventies, all save Mr. McMicking,
who tells the story,—have attended
their last caucus, now await the
"final count."

The Diamond Drill on the Ground Today
Limited Amount of Stock at 15 Cents—5 Cents Cash
Read this offer over carefully. Be
sure that it is right, then don't wait.
The owners take a chance with you.
They put up the coal lands and you
put up the money to prove the coal,
one-half of the stock for you, and
one-half for them. This is one of
the fairest and best offers ever made
to the public under ironclad conditions. A business proposition from
start to finish, there is nothing on
the market like it. Leases and Crown
grants to over 3,000 acres of the best
coal lands on Queen Charlotte Islands
are being conveyed free from all encumbrances to the Northern Anthracite Collieries, Ltd., capital stock
1,500,000 shares, par value of $1.00
each; one-half of this stock for the
treasury and one-half for the owners
of the land. The first 100,000 of
these shares of par value of $1.00
each, non-assessable and fully paid
up, are to be Bold at 15c, 5c with
application, 5c in 30 days and 5c in
60 days. The proceeds from this
block of stock will be used proving
these coal lands with a Diamond
Drill under special contract, and in
charge of competent management. 'It
is expected  that the proceeds from
this first block of stock will be sufficient to put down at least three or
more boreholes of 1,000 feet each.
This will undoubtedly cut one or two
seams of splendid coal—then see
your stock jump. Satisfactory tenders have been accepted and a contract let to the Diamond Drill Contracting Company of Spokane, Wash.,
for the borlnr and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe side, p. further
block of 100,000 shares of treasury
stock will be offered at 25c per share,
5c on application and 5c per month
until paid, as soon as the first block
has all been subscribed.
Now, use your own judgment, but
consider carefully what your chances
are of making $85.00 on an investment of $15.00 in six months, or
$1,000 on an investment of $150.00,
for as sure as the sun rises and sets
this stock will go to $1.00 at least as
soon as the drill cuts through the
seams of splendid coal that are surely
there, according to all experts' reports of the highest obtainable authority, who have reported on the Queen
Charlotte Islands coal measures as
follows: T. R. Marshall, F.C.S., 1902;
Dr.     George    M.    Dawson,    D. S.,
A.R.A.R.S.M., F.G.S., 1878; H. E.
Parrish, John J. Langdale, 1867;
James Deans, 1872; James Parkinson, 1888; R. W. Ellis, 1906; T. B.
Cory, of the State of Washington,
U. S. A., and our own expert, C. F. J.
Galloway, B.Sc, who is among the
best authorities In B. C.
These reports cover first the Wil-
soa-Robinson coal fields, three miles
nort! of this coal land; second, the
Old Cowgate coal fields, almost adjoining on the west; third, the Alfred
Bay coal fields on the south; and
fourth, the company's own coal, all
of which are positive evidence that
this is one of the best coal fields on
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Situate on Graham Island, Bearskin Bay,
one of the best harbors in the north,
at the gateway of transportation to
all points of tlie world, and at the
very doors of Queen Charlotte City;
in fact, a portion of this coal underlies the townsite. No railroads to
build—just lead the coal from the
mines to the boats. These are facts
that defy contradiction, and within
five days the Diamond Drill will be
on the ground and in operation. This
is the only way anyone can tell how
many millions of tons of coal there
Is in the property.
All applications will be filed in
order received, and only 100,000 will
be sold at 15c.
How many times in your life have
you had a cliance like this? A square
deal for once at least In a stock
proposition, with almost a certainty
of the stock being worth $1.00 before
you have made your third payment
at 15c. Do not hesitate. Send In
your application today.
For further information call or
write to the head office of the company, 506 Pacific Building, where the
report of'C. F. J. Galloway, B.S.C.,
on this coal land can be seen. His
report is all that could be asked,
practically saying that the coal is
there beyond a doubt, with sufficient
evidence in sight to warrant drilling
and development work at once.
Paragraph From Mr. Galloways
Report
"The easiest seam to prove will be
the Cowgitz, as its horizon Is known.
I should, therefore, recommend you
to put down a borehole near the eastern end of your easternmost section.
At the point marked C on the map
the position of this seam should be
passed through at a depth of about
500 feet, the Camp Anthracite seam
being probably passed through In the
same hole, if it occurs at all in this
locality."
All promoters' stock is to be pooled
until $200,000 has been raised for
the purpose of developing the mine.
In conclusion, you will have the
satisfaction of knowing that your
money is all goinng into proving the
coal is there, not into the promoters'
pockets nor to pay for a dead horse
of any kind, as the coal leases and
titles are all paid for and clear of
all encumbrances and will always be
a valuable asset. Fill out the application form for any number of
shares you want and address your
application to H. F. McRae & Co.,
Second Avenue, Prince Rupert, who
are the authorized agents to receive
applications and receipt for same.
All cheques or money Orders should
be made out to them. You are requested to make any enquiries not
answered in this advertisement,
which will receive a prompt answer.

Workmen's Compensation
Interesting statistics relating to
compensation and proceedings under
the Workmen's Compensation Act
the Employer's Liability Act during
1910 are contained in a Blue Book
issued by the British Home Office.
The returns have been collected
from seven great groups of Industries
—mines, quarries, railways, factories, harbors nnd docks, constructional works, and shipping—in which
the number of employers was 134,-
820, and the persons employed over
seven millions, of whom nearly five
millions come under the bending
"factories."
In these Industries, In the year,
Compensation was pall in 8,510 cases
of death nnd In 378,340 cases of disablement. The average payment in
case of death was £153, in case of
disablement .£5 14s. The annual
charge for compensation, taking tho
seven groups of industries together,
averaged 7s 8d per person employed.
It was the lowest in the case of
persons employed in factories, being only 4s 3d per person; in the
case of railways it was 8s; it rose
to 10s 3d in quarries, to 12s 5d in
shipping, and to 12s lOd in constructional work; It was highest in mines,
20s 2d, and in docks 20s 6d.
In the coal mining industry the
charge arising under the Act works
out at about 9d only per ton of coal
raised, as compared with 8d In the
previous year.
The total amount of compensation
paid under the Act in the seven
groups of industries during the year
was £2,700,325, as compared with
£2,274,238 last year. When to this
is added the costs of management,
commission, legal and medical expenses, etc., the total charge borne
by (he seven industries probably
amounts to nearly £4,000,000.
These figures Include, in addition
to accidents, cases of the various industrial diseases (now 24 in number)
that r-ome under the Workmen's
Compensation Act, Compensation
was paid in the seven groups of Industries In 36 cases of death from
disease and In 4,438 cases of disablement.
The bulk of these cases, 85.2 per
cent of the total, occurred In the
mining industry, and were due mainly to nystagmus, beat hand, beat
knee (all three large increases on
1099) and beat elbow. Of the remaining 519 were cases of lead poisoning.
Only a very small proportion of
the claims become the subject of
litigation. The total number of cases
under the Workmen's Compensation
Act which were taken Into court in
England and Wales in 1910 was
6,666; man of these, however, were
applications for dealing with allowances that had already been granted, and many were settled out of
court, or otherwise disposed of, so
that the total number of original
claims for compensation  finally set
tled within the cognizance of the
courts was only 3,862. In Scotland
the corresponding figures were 1,516
and 486; in Ireland, 1,034 and 658
respectively. Of the 5,006 cases settled judicially under the Act in the
United Kingdom, the decision was in
favor of the applicant; that Is, the
workman, In 3,938, or 78.6 per cent.
The total number of cases under
the Employers' Liability Act, 1880,
taken into court In the whole of the
United Kingdom, which was 604 In
1907, 406 In 1908, 298 In 1909, in
1910 fell still further to 217. These
figures, says Sir Edward Troup, In
conclusion, show clearly the tendency of the remedy provided by the
older Act to fall into disuse since the
Act of 1906 came Into full operation.
 o	
WORLD   WHEAT   MOIEMENT
How   the  Turko-Italian   War Is  Aft
feeling  Exports
International wheat movements
are showing the effects of trade disturbance incident to the Italian invasion of Tripoli, says the Wall
Street Journal. Wheat from Turkey being contraband so far as Italy
is concerned, has made shippers and
shipowners cautious about consignments from Russia and the Danube.
Danubian exports last week were
1,160,000 bushels, compared with
2,248,000 the week before and
2,203,000 In the last week of September. An equal falling off in the
American exports combined with the
Danubian decline, reduced the
world's exports about 2,500,000
bushels,    bringing    the    movement
down to 8,488,000 bushels, or 5,304,-
000 bushels below the corresponding
movement last year.
Part of this decrease in exports
was compensated for by the increase
of 3,582,000 bushels in the American
visible supply. The domestic visible
now stands at the high figure of 60,-
181,000 bushels. A year ago the
United States visible was 37,573,000
bushels. At no time did the aggregate reach the total of this year.
The combined visible supply of the
United States and Canada was 47,-
118,000 bushels.
In spite of the more liberal domestic movement, prices for future
contracts tend to grow firmer, especially for December and May. Just
at this time the domestic market appears to have found Its levels, but
It Is quite susceptible to changes from
foreign market factors. For the
next month or more, during which
Western Europe depends upon Rus-
slon and Danubian supplies, the
chief factor will be the quantity
available from the Baltic and the
Danubian district. By December,
Argentina harvests will be pretty
well determined as influences affect-,
ing the movement of wheat at home
and abroad.

of the department of marine and
fisheries for the Pacific Coast, arrived in the city by the Camosun on
Saturday. He joined the D. G. S.
Quadra, Captain Hackett to proceed
to the lighthouse site at Lan-
gara, where be will inspect the work
now going on there under the charge
of the department.
AUSTRALIA'S FLEET
Prime Minister Fisher, in delivering the budget speech in the Commonwealth Parliament, presented
figures which revealed a wonderful
expansion of revenue. In spite of
a great increase in expenditure, there
remains a surplus of two millions.
The principal feature of expenditure
is the construction of the first section of the fleet at a cost of four
millions out of revenue, while large
votes are provided to build new forts
equipped with heavy guns, and to
place the harbor defences and land
forces on practically a war footing.
The government has rejected the
offer of Great Britain to contribute
a quarter of a million annually toward the upkeep of the fleet.
An issue of federal debentures is
forecasted, the proceeds of which
will go towards the building of the
new capitoi, national railways and
the redeeming of state debts.
It is not the intention of the government to renew the Vancouver
mail service at present. It is announced that the post office department prefers to pay poundage.
WANT  PROTECTION
Alaska   Fishermen   Desire   to   Have
Fisheries Preserved From
Japanese
Five hundred canners, sailers and
fishermen at a mass meeting held at
Ketchikan launched a movement demanding the enactment of national
legislation, should the present laws
prove inadequate, to protect Alaska
flshmenl from the encroachment of
alien fishermen. The movement is
directed especially against the Japanese, who have been very active in
catching and salting herring for Oriental shipment. To test the strength
of the present laws n Japanese fisherman was arrested by an agent of
the United States fisheries bureau
and will be tried. The meeting was
orderly. There were no Incendiary
speeches nor evidence of race hatred
but the Alaska fishmen insisted that
they be protected from the encroachment of the a'iens.
Fell off Chinch
Eugene Blaine, a carpenter employed on the new Methodist Church,
now under construction, fell from the
building last evening and had lo be
taken to the hospital.

Arising out of the coal dispute, a
communication was read before the
council last night offering apparatus
for testing coal. This was referred
to the electric light committee.

LAY   OUT   CEMETERY
Early Move Will Be Made to Make It
Possible to Use Buiial
Ground
There is a prospect that the cemetery may be put in such shape that
a part of it may be used within a
short time. The need of this is a
crying one. Alderman Clayton
brought the subject before the council last evening and thought something should be done to have the
road to the cemetery put in shape for
use If at all possible. He dwelt at
length upon the deplorable conditions
that at present existed whereby burial had to be made on Garden Island,
wliich was anything but a proper condition.
Alderman Hilditch said the road
could be got ready in a few days, but
the difficulty was that there should
be work done at the cemetery in the
way of laying off plots before it
ceiuld Ire put in use. He deplored the
situation as it now existed. Mr. Clements was engaged putting In the
monuments on the streets as a guide
for the future. This, the engineer
represented, was very essential. As
soon as this was done, be could do
work on the cemetery lots.
His Worship suggested that perhaps Mr. Clements could do what was
absolutely necessary In the way of
street monuments and then do the
cemetery work.
The city engineer agreed that this
would be possible and the Public
Works Committee will take the matter up at once.

Sidewalk   Laying
The laying of sidewalks on the

500,000 feet of lumber now on hand
for the work.
"Yes, sir, in a year from now this
Amalgamated Balloon stock will be
worth ten thousand dollars, and I'll

"If It'll be worth ten thousand dollars in a year from now, why don't
you keep it yourself?"
f     TRIPOLI     !

**************************
Tripoli, over which war has
broken out, is a Turkish vilayet, or
province, in North Africa. It occupies a position just west of Egypt,
and has an area of 400,000 square
miles and a population of about a
million. It is almost a purely agricultural country, having no manufacturers whatever, and no mineral
products except salt. There is a lucrative spone fishery in the Mediterranean. Trade before the suppression 6*f the oversea slave traffic was
largely in negroes brought across
the Sahara with other Soudan produce for the Turkish market. It now
consists chiefly in the export of barley, eggs, cattle, sponges, mats and
Ivory, ostrich feathers and gold dust
from the interior. Sheep are also
exported in large numbers. With
Egypt there is a large overland as
well as sea trade.
The Imports consist of flour, rice,
tea, sugar, cottons, tobacco, metals
and hardware. There Is also a contraband trade with Greece and Malta
In firearms and gunpowder.
The people are principally Berbers
and Arabs, with an admixture of ne-
goes and negroid Intruders from the
Soudan. There are also colonies of
'lurks, Italians, Creeks, Maltese and
other people of Soutli Europe.
Tripoli, the capital, Is one of the
most ancient cities of the world. It
Is situated on a promontory stretching into the Mediterranean and forming a small crescent shaped bay,
which shelters the harbor from north
winds. The harbor contains deep
wa'er, but shoals render the entry
difficult. The city Is picturesque
from a distance, containing many
Turkish mosques and minarets. It
is Oriental In appearance though
there are some European buildings
near the shore.
Tripoli city Is essentially a trading centre with a Berber, Arab,
Turk, Jewish, Italian, Maltese,
Greek and negro population of about
60,000.    The place was founded by

the' Greeks earlier than the seventh
century before Christ, and was then
known as Oea. It owes its stability
in a large measure to Its position
over against Sicily, from which it is
over 450 miles distant. It has been
for centuries the northern terminus
of three great caravan routes, the
first crossing the narrowest part of
the Sahara to Lake Chad, the second
running southwest to Timbuktu, and
the third ending In the southeast at
VV'adal. Near the port stands a Roman triumphal arch which was begun in the reign of Emperor An-
tonlus and completed In that of Marcus Aurellus.
Cyrencia, one of the provinces,
first colonized by the Greeks, fell
under the sway of the Egypt of the
Ptolemies. Tripoli proper passed to
the Romans after the fall of Carthage, was conquered by the Vandals
in the fifty century and passed under Arab control two hundred years
later. In 1510 Spain secured control. In 1528 the Knights of St.
John were given possession, but
were expelled hy the Turks. The
control of Constantinople weakened
In the succeeding centuries and the
city became the headquarters of pirates. Half the state of Europe
seem at one time or another to have
sent fleets against these scourges.

States became Involved in a war with
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 stove putty.    It'i
Important to every one using or  buying
a range.
