IN IMPERIAL  HOUSE
Norton Griffiths Gives  His Views on
Reciprocity before
Commons
He Combats the Theory That Canada
Is in Favor of Free Trade
As Represented
ICE   HOCKEY
Mr. Norton-Griffiths, M. P., for
Wednesbury, who is so prominently
identified with Western Canada,
speaking in the Imperial House of
Commons on the Canadian Preference, said:
"This being the first time I have
the honor of addressing the House,
I am glad that it is to be on an important matter of such great interest. In spite of the views of the
honorable member who last spoke,
I should like to mention that my
constituency, consisting of nearly all
working men, sent me to this house
because of my Imperial views. It is
quite evident and the debate has certainly made it clear that the government of the day have not the slightest intention of trying to bring about
closer or Imperial unity by adopting,
in any shape or form, our method
of Imperial preference, which we advocate as having the tendency to
consolidate this great empire of
ours. What is still more alarming
to most of us who have the interests
of the empire at heart is that the
government during debate have not
made any suggestions, nor do they
appear to realize that there is any
great urgency, or any urgency whatever for safeguarding our Imperial
Interests. Imperial preference is,
after all, a means towards bringing j
about a commercial union between
this country and our self-governing
dominions. 1 think that the majority of our kinsmen who reside in the
various sections of our Empire agree
with us that that is a policy which
would materially assist towards that
end. Hitherto the government have
done absolutely nothing to show that
they are prepared to ireat the dominions in any different way to that
which they mete out to foreign nations, and as far as one can gather,
they are, if anything, a little more
polite to foreigners. The terms of
tiie resolution reaffirmed at the conference of 1907 by all the members
of the conference, except His Majesty's Free Trade government, were as
follows:
" 'That this conference recognizes
that the principle of preferential
trade between the United Kingdom
and His Majesty's Dominions beyond
the seas would stimulate and facilitate mutual commercial intercourse
and would by promoting the development of the resources and industries of the several parts, strengthen
the empire.'
Nor were these mere empty words.
Canada, of which so much has been
heard during the debate, has already
given earnest of her desire to promote the unity of the empire by J
granting preference. Probably 1 have
about as many years' experience of
Canada as some who have spoken,
but I speak with a considerable
knowledge of that country. Only
yesterday 1 heard the honorable
member for Swansea (Sir A. Mond)
state that there was a strong feeling
for free trade in Canada. 1 fall to
see or to realize wliere ne got his
facts. I had the privilege of being
attacked by tlie assistant editor of
the Toronto Globe, and, as a matter
of fad 1 think when the honorable
member for Swansea was there that
the editor was away, but I should
like to point out for the information
of some honorable members tnat the
Toronto Globe is a more rabid Social-
Radical paper than cur finest home
production in that line. At the time
the Radical press of England were
talking of free trade Canada in big
head lines, I received a cablegram
in Winnipeg, wliere I then was, asking if that were true. I can assure
the house that my difficulty was to
find those free traders. After some
considerable trouble and time I was
successful in unearthing an obscure
organization of which I took very
great care to get minute particulars
and details which were published in'
the press here. With reference to
that free trade Which was referred to
in such a prominent way by the Radical press, I may state that the Free
Trade League, located at Winnipeg,
consisted of 300 members, the pop-
The formation of a western Canadian ice hockey league embracing
Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary and
Edmonton and calling for an investment of half a million dollars in
buildings and plants is anounced by
Frak and Leter Patrick, of Nelson,
sons of a wealthy lumberman of
this province. These two young men
are famed as hockey players
throughout the Dominion. The proposition calls for artificial ice rings
in the two coast cities and natural
ice rinks in the two Alberta cities.
Sites have been secured in Victoria
and Vancouver and separate companies have been organized in each of

END OF MANCHURIA
Rumors that Japan and Russia Aim at
Partition of the
Territory
Some    Fatts    Connected  with    the
Country Which Is Involved
MACHINIST'S TROUBLE
C. P. R. Employees Demand Increase in
Wages and an Eight
Hour Day
Over   Three  Thousand   Men   in   Employ of Company Are Affected
by the Demand
Persistent statements are given
out that Russia and Japan are" negotiating for the partition of Manchuria between them. Japan has an
old claim on part of this territory.
By the treaty of Shimonoseki, following the war with China in 1S95,
the Liao Tung peninsula was surrendered to Japan. Europeon
nations, including Russia, intervened, and Japan had to give up this
territory, and be content with Formosa with an indemnity. A few
years later, following the Boxer
trouble Russia was in practical occupation of this peninsula, and in con-|
trol of a large part of the province.
She was driven out for the time by
Japan, which has since included the
peninsula in her own sphere of Influence. During all these shift-
ings of control China has been the
nominal authority throughout Manchuria. But China has no power to
assert her ownership or to preserve
order in this large part of her domain, and Japan is no more willing
to withdraw from the territory than
Russia was before the war. If it
shall be found that Japan and Rus-
sit have decided that it is better to
share tlie country than to fight over
it, the world is well prepared for
the  information.
Manchuria, lying between the
province of Chili and Amur River,
bordering on Russia Asia, has an
area of 363,000 square miles, and a
population supposed to be not less
than 18,000,000. It is subdivided
into three provinces, Shen-King, Kir-
in and Helungkiang. The latter,
which is larger than the two others
together, lies to the north and might
in case of partition fall to Russia.
But the other provinces are more
populas and valuable, one containing 10,000,000 and the other 6,000,
0 00 inhabitants. Japan has now a
firm lease of the southern extremity
of the Liao-tung peninsula contain-
ince, with only 56,000 square miles
of territory, has a population of
nearly 200 to the square tnile. Here
the Manchu race has been largely
displaced by Chinese immigrant farmers. Here are situated the city of
.Mukden, the Manchurian capital,
which lias 160,000 population, and
Newchwang with 60,000—places of
which we heard a good deal in war
time. Mukden is connected by several railway lines with other pails
oftlie territory, and Russia placed
this capital on the Siberian railway
circuit by tlie extension from allrhin
through .Mukden to Port Arthur. II'
Russian ambitions had been satis-
lied tliis would have become the
main road and the line by Vladivo-
stock a less travelled branch.
13y the treaty of Portsmouth following the war between Russia and
Japan both parties agreed to evacuate Manchuria, except that part near
Port Arthur covered by the Japanese
lease. The exclusive administration
was to be restored to China. A few
months later China confirmed the
the lease,-gave Japan a right to construct and control several railways,
and opened practically all the Manchurian ports to foreign commerce.
Still later China gave Great Britain
for defensive purposes a lease of a
small area opposite Hong Kong.
France also has a small bay in that
neighborhood. But France took her

WINNIPEG, March 21.—Trouble
is again brewing between the Canadian Pacific Railway machinists and
the company, the men demanding
an eight-hour day and an increase of
3 % cents an hour. The present rate
is 42 y2 cents an hour.
The officials of all the divisions
will meet here on Thursday to confer with the men. Over 3,000 employees are affected.

STREET  LINES OUT
VICTORIA'S ELECTION
Lively Campaign is Fxpected in Contest for Civic
Rulers
MAY VISIT THE CITY
Mayor Morley May lie Unopposed in
the Eight, but Many Aldermen Offering
new-
take
NEW WESTMINSTER—In the re-
survey of the city, which is now
nearing completion, it has been
found that the present street lines
In many sections are away out from
the correct lines as laid out by the
re-survey work. These lines vary
from three or fourd feet in the business or residential sections of the
city wnere buildings are at present
located, to as much as 66 feet, the
full width of the street, in some
parts of the city, where the streets
are not yet cleared or opened up.
One of the outstanding examples of
the latter is the east end of Eighth
avenue in Sapperton, which is said
to be fully 66 feet out from the correct line. When the re-survey of the
city is completed a report will probably be presented to the city council
showing these inaccuracies and 1t
will then be for the council to decide
what steps shall be taken to make
the city streets conform with the
correct lines. In the majority of
cases this will not cause any great
labor or expense for very few street
lines of any kind have been given by
the city and in cases where private
property owners have made the mistake they will have to suffer, and, at
the discretion of the council, may be
made to move off the street.
(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, March 21.—The
civic election will probably
place on April 7, though it is problematical whether there will be a
candidate in opposition to Mayor
Morley. There is every assurance
there will be a lively aldermanic contest in each ward, however, the voters' league having determined to
endeavor to secure the return of men
pledged to support the policy of the
present mayor.

IRISH CONCERT
St.   Patrick's Day Was Remembered
in the City—A Good Programme Given
jPASS LIQUOR BY-LAW
There is a prospect that during the
coming summer Hamar Greenwood,
the Canadian who has become so
prominent in the politics of the Old
Land, may again visit Prince Rupert.
Some years ago before the sale of
the lots in this city Mr. Greenwood
on a visit to the Pacific Coast made
a trip to this place and manifested
a deep Interest in the futujfi of the
city.
He has written tod Mayor Manson,
who as government agent on the occasion of his last visit, took an active
part in entertaining him, that he
will probably come to the west again
this summer and holies ou that occa-
•sion to again visit Prince Rupert.

CITY SEWER WORK
Objections Raised to Carrying on Operations Under Force
Account
Proposition Made to Bring This Under the Day Labor
System
The sewer work on Fraser street
and Eighth street now being carried
out under force account will probably be put under the city system
and carried out under the day labor
system.
Aid. Kerr called attention to tlie
sewer work on Eighth street and
Fraser street. He said that this
would be needed this summer, it
was an eight-inch sewer which made
it a joke. A much larger sewer was
needed. There was a large area to
be drained by it. This work was
heing done on force account at an
advance of 10 per cent. The city
should take this over.
Aid. Hilditch said the engineer
estimated that it, wolud take ahout
three weeks to finish it. Tlie engineer approved of letting Mr. Mc-
Mordie finish it as tlie city would
know who to blame if anything was
wrong. This would be poor satisfaction, however.
The qiiestion of bow these sewers
and culverts were to be paid for was
something that should be decided.
This work in Section 1 was being
paid out of general revenue. Probably $30,000 was being expended
now.
Aid. Morrissey called attention to
a wooden culvert on Fraser street
which he felt would be crushed by
the fill.
Aid. Hilditch said this was a piece
of work where there had been a miscalculation on the part of the engineer in not securing tlie pipe. As
to tlie taking over of the sewer work
lie was prepared to have it taken
over by the city. It could be done
cheaper by the city than by foi-re account.
Aid. Newton moved to refer this
matter to the streets committee.
The motion carried.

Aid.   Morrissey,   the  president  of |
the committee in charge of the en-1
tertainment, was exceedingly happy
in his introductory remarks. Later
in the evening J. S. Cowper delivered
an address upon "The Day We Celebrate."
The programme, which was carried out as arranged, included a
"•ide variety of entertainment, being

At the council meeting last evening, with Aid. Smith and Aid. Pattullo absent, the liquor bylaw as
amended was finally adopted and ordered to have the seal attached. It
passed In the form of allowing the
bars to keep open until 12 o'clock
at night with the exception of Saturday night when the hour of closing shall be 11 o'clock.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the bylaw be finally adopted.
It was suggested by His Worship
that an amendment might be introduced making the fee for bartenders
payable to the assessor instead of to
the city clerk. The mention was to
make all taxes payable to tbe one
official now.
Aid. Hllditch objected to this
amendment because it would mean
that the bylaw would be held up
again before it could be finally
adopted.
His Worship wanted to know if
there was any particular hurry about
this.
Aid. Hilditch said it had been a
very troublesome bylaw nnd he
wanted to get It off his hands.
Aid. Newton said he would move
in the direction of amending the bylaw, but he saw there was no use.
The "dry" members were absent, at
least several of them were and he
might as well leave this as it stood.
The motion of Aid. Hilditch to
finally adopt the bylaw carried without a division.
Aid. Hilditch, speaking on a matter of privilege, said that there had
been a good deal of feeling with respect to this, lie fell strongly in
favor of it. because It was in the
shape it was in with respect to hours
when the licenses were granted. If
the commissioners would see that
the Bowser act was enforced he felt
there would be no 111 effects from It.
On Saturday afternoon at a special meeting of the council held to
take up tlte bylaw, Aid. Hilditch objected to the measure being disposed
of until Monday night. He asked
for a ruling from the chair.
Mayor Manson said he did not
find any rule which forbade tlie matter being dealt with without the
consent of the father of the measure.
He explained thai tlie parliamentary
practice was thai the one responsible
for tlie measure had tlie say as to
whether it should be gone on with.
It seemed to lie a matter of courtesy to meet the views of the father of
the measure.
Several members of    the council
expressed themselves as opposed to
treating Aid. Hllditch discourteously
and were ready to   let    the   bylaw
: stand over.
This was agreed to In spit.- of
strenuous objection by Aid. Pattullo

HOSPITAL DEMANDS
Institution is Filling up With Patients
Requiring Addional
Staff
William   Manson Secures   Necessary
Looks for Office from Government
Following the rapid filling up of
the hospital, the Board of Directors
have had to act promptly in the matter of added equipment. The house
committee, acting under Instructions
from the board, has filled the post
of janitor and orderly, vacated by
George Phillpot. Capt. Eastcott,
who lias been a resident of the city
for considerable time, has been appointed to the position and has entered upon his duties.
The committee is also authorizing
the securing of another nurse who is
expected to reach the city in about
a month's time. At present the
matron and the nursing staff are
oblied to be on duty very long hours
without any time off for recreation.
Tiie board seems to have been fortunate in its choice of staff and those
who have had to enter the hospital
speak in high terms of the attention
given and the character of the service and the food provided.
The hospital, being a young one,
is in need of reading matter for the
use of the convalescing patients.
Magazines that have been read and
are not required by private individuals, will be appreciated at the institution. The Prince Rupert Club Is
making a donation of a large number.
The need of additional private
wards is pressing upon the board.
With only six of these in the institution the capacity is taxed continually. Plans for meeting the difficulty
are now under consideration.
At the last meeting of the board,
Mayor Manson, the honorary president of the association, was welcomed back. At the request of the
president, Mr. Manson explained
that he had, in compliance with the
request of the board, gone in the
subject, of hooks and records for the
institution. Mr. Goepel, inspector
of officers In the government em-
play, had given him valuable assistance and had drafted the books necessary. Tlie provincial secretary,
Hon. II. E. Young, had approved of
it and the preparation of those hooks
in the government printing office
was to be carried out without cost
to the local board.
The thanks of the board was extended to Mr. .Manson for his efforts.
The gift of three pairs of crutches
from W. R. Morrison, for the John
Houston ward was acknowledged.
Mr. Morrison will be thanked for the
gift.
Rules for the admission of patients were reported by the house
committee and approved of. These
provide that In cases of emergency
or accident a patient shall he admitted without formality. Pay patients
are admitted on tlie certificate of a
registered practitioner who certifies
that tlie person is in need of hospital!
attention and is not suffering from a
contagious disease and is not of unsound mind. Free patients must
have a certificate from n medical
man that tho person Is a fit subject
for hospital attention and is not of
unsound mind nor suffering from a
contagious disease Tlie patient must I
also have a card signed by two doc-j
tors before being admitted.

Prince Rupert Branch—
F. S. LONG, Manager.
Some few weeks ago a Dominion
charter was issued for the Bella
Coola, Peace River and Alberta Railroad to what was understood at that
time to be a party of Minneapolis
capitalists who were interested in a
project for the establishment of a
flour mill industry up the Bella
Cola Inlet. It has now transpired
that the Pillsbtiry-Washburn interests, whose name is a household
word wherever bread is baked, are
at the back of this concern.
On the best of authority it may be
slated that the Pillsbury-Washburn
firm is about to build in the very
near future a flour mill of enormous
capacity for the manufacture of
a superfine high-grade flour from
wheat grown in Northern Alberta
and the Peace River districts.
It lias been recognized by this
Company that the further north the
wheat is grown the better the flour,
and this at the same time is a rec-
onlzed fact the world over. For
many years past the Hudson's Bay
Company has been growing wheat
at their, post at Fort Vermillion,
which Is 700 miles nortli of Edmonton. At tlie Chicago World's Fair,
held In 1893, flour manufactured
from wheat grown lip the Hudson's
Bay Company :it the fort, won I lie
gold medal, the highest of all honors
which it was in the power of (lie
executive to bestow, and since Hint
lime it has been an incentive for
a number of shrewd Americans to
develops Ih-ir plans and await Hip
great opportunity which railroad
facilities   would   give   them.
The added facilities which will be
afforded by the completion of the
Panama Canal have not bean lost
sight of and they will add materially
to the merchantable quality of the
product.
As to the exact capacity of the
mills which are about to be erected
and established on the Inlet the details are not yet to hand, but within a few days they will be available.
It Is understood that the railroad
line will be in operation by the
lime that the mills aie ready to
work, and that In the meantime all
the grist that comes to the const
by any methody will be speedily
handled. Shipping facilities will be
established and wharve.i, warehouses and elevators built, and tlie whole
enterprise wl'l be one of tlie greatest
on  the coast of British  Columbia.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
BACK FROM EUROPE
Campbell Sweeney of Bank of Montreal
Discusses Various Questions of
the Day.
Well-Known  Financier Has Arrived
in Vancouver After Prolonged
Visit to Old Land
Back from a holiday trip to Europe, which was Intended to last
three months, but through an attack
of Influenza has been made into
four, Mr. Campbell Sweeny, manager
of the Bank of Montreal in this city,
returned, looking and being in first-
class health, after a most enjoyable
holiday, the first for many years,
says the Vancouver News-Advertiser,
Every prominent man who comes
back after a visit to the Old Country has the same strong impressions
to give of the enormously enlarged
place Canada is now taking in the
eyes of Great Britain, and Mr. Sweeney was another amongst the number.
People In London, he said, were
unquestionably greatly interested,
and would be" more and more interested in Canadian investments. A
large proportion of those people had
turned their attention to British Columbia investments. Everybody "at
home" was extremely dissatisfied
with affairs In England, and considerable numbers, after investigating
one place and another in which to
Invest their money where they would
get a sure return for It, had selected
this province.
On his way back from England,
Mr. Sweeny stayed for a day or two
in Montreal, and amongst those he
met there was a very prominent
Scottish landowner, who, sick of Mr.
Lloyd-George and his methods, had
disposed of his large estates, and
was on his way to invest his money
in  British  Columbia.
Mr. Sweeny also met Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and confirms
the report published that the Canadian Pacific Railway are about to
arrange for the building of new Empress steamers for the Pacific trade,
While agreeing that other steamship lines are creating keen competition over the Atlantic, and also
that the question of mail subsidy
was not yet settled, Mr. Sweeny felt
there was no doubt but that the
Canadian Pacific wolud at least quite
hold its own, whatever competition
entered.
As regarded the burning subject
of reciprocity, he had read the reports of the way the Dominion government had professed to consider
the opinion of British Columbia,
which valuation he thought singularly incorrect, as the Provincial
Government had expressed its views
quite to the contrary, and he was
more than confident that the feeling
of the province was against it.

SIGNS OF PROSPERITY
Everything this spring indicates
thai the coming season is to be a
lively one I" this city. Prince Rupert is not dependent upon any one
industry or enterprise in this respect.
On the other hand, there is abundant evidence that in many diversified
lines the spring will open in an active way.
The outlook for the mines of the
nortli are exceedingly bright. There
will be more money spent in development work this summer than has
ever been expended before, it is predicted by those who know the situation. This will embrace the Hazelton District and Portland Canal and
all the intervening sei-tion the whole
of which is directly tributary to
Prime Rupert.
The fisheries of the north are
very much In the public eye and will
from year to year be more fully developed.
A settlement of tlie G. T. P. question brings witli it the promise of
active work being commenced upon
permanent works here which will
have a reassuring effect in connection with the business life.
The waterfront witli its large
store houses is an assurance of business to any who may enter tlie harbor. Attention is more and more
being directed  this  way.
A CASE OK  BUTTER
Police  Magistrate   Dismisses  Charge
Concerning a Peculiar Situation
In the police court this morning,
W. Fraser, one of tlie best-known
workers in the city, was called upon
to defend himself against a charge
in connection with stolen butter.
The evidence went to show that Mr,
Fraser had bought the butter which
was a 28-pound case, from a man
named William Rhodes for $7.
Rhodes had been a longshoreman
but had gone into the restaurant
business with a few partners on
Comox avenue. When they closed
up business about the first of the
year. Fraser, who was a personal
friend of Rhodes, bought the butter
on the urgent request of Rhodes,
who wanted money.
The police, in search of stolen
goods, located the butter at Fraser's
place and arrested him. Tbe butter
was kept in a garret above his
shack.
Police Magistrate Carss, in court,
said he had no doubt the butter was
originally stolen from Foley, Welch
& Stewart, but there was not evidence to show that Fraser was Implicated in it. He dismissed the
case.
L. VV. Patmore, who represented
Mr. Fraser, laid stress upon tlie fact
that his client was a leader among
the workingmen and lie thought lie
should be exonerated so as not to
work an injustice upon him. The
magistrate admitted there was nothing to show that Mr. Fraser bad
more lo do with It than any one
else would have had bad they purchased the butter in good ralth.
.Mr. Fraser said in. had no taull
to find wiih the police in their action, ii,. believed they acted in
good faith in trying in gel in ihe
rot'  of the matter.
RECIPROCITY DEBATE
Baptist   Young   People   in   Interesting
Political Oratorical
Contest
Decision      Against     the      Proposed
Agreement    Given    by    the
Judges at the Meeting
HUGE LUMBER DEAL
Patrick   Lumber Company  of  If.  ('
Sells its .Mill nml Oilier Property I'm- $1,000,000
For n million dollars, the Patrick
Lumber Company, Limited, has
conveyed to tlie British Canadian
Lumber Corporation, with headquarters at Montreal, its mill at Crescent
Valley and 9,000 acres of white pine,
spruce and cedar un ihe east, and
west branches of I he Little Siocan
River. These timber lands, which
are conceded locally lo lie about the
most valuable limits in the interior,
have been owned outright. The sawmill's capacity on an ordinary run Is
30,000,000 per year, ami the plant
Is claimed to have no superior in the
Interior.
George Tlte has gone south  on a
business trip.
The subject of the debate at the
Baptist Church last evening was:
"Resolved, That the reciprocity
agreement would be beneficial to
Canada." The debaters were Messrs.
W. H. Stuart and Hansen for the affirmative and Messrs. W. W. Wood
%nd Clyde Rogers for the negative.
The debate was keenly contested.
There was enough rivalry and sharp
rebuttal to keep the audience intens-
ly interested.
Mr. Stuart was the first speaker,
and said in  part:
"1 stand here tonight to prove the
affirmative side of this debate. I
am a Liberal and I would be disloyal
to Canada and good politics if I did
not seek to defend reciprocity as
beneficial to Canada."
He said that reciprocity would
permit the consumer to purchase
goods on either side of the line without the present high tariff. Reciprocity was one step towards free trade
and free trade had made Great Britain the financial centre of the money
market of the world. She had also
been the birthplace of the greatest
industries. The workingman wouJd
be benefitted by this agreement.
Smuggling wolud be prevented because unnecessary and thus would
endlhat common crime caused by
protection. Our coal deposits and
other minerals would be developed,
timber industries flourish, wheat
and other agricultural products find
a ready market and in every respect
Canada from Atlantic to Pacific
would be benefitted by reciprocity.
Mr. Wood, leader of the negative,
in introducing his side of the debate,
said that he had been highly entertained as he listened to the eloquence
Of the former speaker but he had decided to spend li is time in the statement of a series of facts that would
prove conclusively that the reciprocity agreement would be a fatal blow
to the best interests of Canada. He
further stated that reciprocity was
a certain step to annexation and the
destruction of loyalty to the Mother
Country. The implement manufacturers of Ontario and Quebec were
yet in their infancy and needed protection from their large corporation
rivals across the line. Canadian
wheat, is rigidly inspected and a certificate of inspection goes with all
exported grain. It, therefore, sells
at a higher figure than American
wheat in the markets of the world.
It will certainl ybe beneficial to the
It will certainly be beneficial to the
freeof duty to Duluth or other distributing points, mix it with poor
American grain and sell the finished
product, accompanied by this certificate of inspection, at the highest
price lntbe foreign markets. This
poor grade of flour, made possible
by reciprocity, will destroy the reputation of Canadian wheat. It is a
plausible argument trat 90,000,000
of American people will make a
great market for our wheat, but the
fact remains true that these people
export their own wheat products and
will only need our grain to increase
their export trade. Railroads will
suffer If not be forced to declare de-
i'lcils, Reciprocity will compel them
lo lose the long haul least and
west) to Atlantic and Pacific ports,
as trade will be diverted to the
shorter routes (north and south) to
Ihe cilies of the United States. The
reciprocity agreement was unconstitutional as Hie government was not
fortified with iho mandate of the
people. It was not a plank in the
party platform al the last election.
The speaker though! this was a suf-
ficlent answer to Mr. Stuart's cry of
loyalty to the Liberal party.
.Mr. Hansen, In supporting Ihe affirmative, gave a brief review of Hie
history of reciprocity, declaring
lhat. in every Instance reciprocal relations bad been beneficial to Canada. He also referred strongly to the
fruit and fish Industries. His contribution was well received.
Mr. Rogers, In supporting the negative, spent his lime In dealing with
reciprocity as It would affect the
natural resources and Industries of
British Columbia, lie snld that the
fishing Industry of British Columbia would be seriously injured and
tho fruit Industry would be crushed
in its infancy. He ably supported
Mr. Wood.
The judges were Rev. Mr. De-
barres, Rev. Mr. Kerr and Mr. Frank
Deary. Rev. Debarres, In presenting
the decision, ably reviewed the
points of     each  speaker  and  stated
that, although it had been a close
contest, tbe judges had decided in
favor  of the negative.
NORTHERN LANDS
Deal   Put  Through  in  Winnipeg Involving Large Area ill Peace
River District
The purchase of 160,000 acres of
land in the Peace River District of
British Columbia has been completed
by Mr. Edward Brown, of Messrs.
E. Brown & Co., Winnipeg, the vendors being Messrs. John F. Bledsoe
and S. R. MacClinton, of the Grand
Trunk Lands Company.
In addition to this personal transaction, it is understood ..,at the deal
will involve still larger interests, including two syndicates of Winnipeg
men and another from America, In
which Mr. H. P. Carter, of Winnipeg,
is arranging matters, and in which
case the acreage will run into numbers closely approximating 200,000
acres and the amoun tinto something
like $5,000,000. In this case this
land deal will be the largest ever
carried out in the provbjee.
In either event the object is colonization. The transaction of Mr.
Brown's was carried through by
.Messrs. Abbot & Hart McHarg, who
looked after his legal interests in the
matter.
Mr. Brown, who, it may ne remembered, unsuccessfully contested
South Winnipeg in the Liberal interests at the election there last
year, was the first purchaser of colonization land sold in Saskatchewan.
This was in 1902, when he bought
50,000 acres for the purpose and
since that time he has dealt in similar purchases which now amount to
over half a million acres.
In addition to his capitalistic interests, ' Mr. Brown is president of
the British North Western Fire Insurance Company, now being organized at Winnipeg, and during his
stay here, in company with Mr. F.
Kent Foster, secretary of the company, he secured a local director for
this'province, in which the new company will also commence operations.

FOR   YUKON  TRADE
Among the 85 passengers who
landed at this place by Monday evening's train, were members of three
steamboat crews, nearly all ot whom
have since gone to the foot of Lake
Lebarge, Says the White Horse Star
of last Friday.
At the head of a party of 23 men
was Captain Syd C. Barrington, who
will conduct a regular shipbuilding
industry at the foot of the lake for
the next two months. Captain Barrington, who is manager of the Side
Streams Navigation Company, will
operate two steamers this season, the
Lafrance and a new and larger boat
which he will cfinstruct at the foot of
the lake, the York Barrington,
named for his little son. The new
boat will have practically new boilers which were In the steamer VI-
dette when she was purchased last
fall but her engines are bran new
and of the latest model.
With Captain Barrington as part
of his crews are his brother, Hill
Barrington, who will be purser on
the new steamer, Captain Steve Martin, who will be her master, George
Waltenbaugh, chief engineer, and
Engineer R. R. Crosby, the latter to
be chief of the Lafrance. The balance of the Barrington crowd are
ship carpenters, ^of which G. W.
brenner, of Seattle, Is foreman. They
all left for the foot of the lake
Wednesday morning.
By the opening of navigation will
see about 200 tons of freight there
for Barrington's two boats, each of
which will qonvoy a large barge
down the river, the latter to be built
at the same time as the new steamer.
Among other shipments will be 80
head of horses which will be taken
by the York Barrington to the head
of navigation on the Porcupine river
for use by the American Boundary
Survey corps. The remainder of the
cargoes of the two steamers will be
taken to Dawson for the N. C. company for their various Yukon and
Tanana posts.

AUSTRALIA'S  NAVY
Report ou  the   Question   Made   by
Admiral Henderson to Commonwealth Government
Rear Admiral Henderson-, who at
the request of the Commonwealth
government, was sent out by the
Admiralty to inquire into the condition of the naval defences of the
country, has made his report to the
cabinet, which has just been published. Rear Admiral Hnderson has
made remarkable statements. He
maintains that Australia cannot afford to keep up a navy commensurate with the length of its coastline,
consequently the Commonwealth|
must co-operate with the British authorities on a population basis. At
present an outlay of $20,000,000 Is
Involved in the work of policing the
South Pacific. The cost of the construction programme is to be spread
over 22 years, and will amount to
the sum of £52,000,000.

KING AT DURBAR
His Majesty Will Appear in Coronation
Robes and Jewels on that
Occasion
Reasons   for  the  Sovereign   Wearing
This Apparel While in
India
It is understood that King George
at the Durbar will appear, when he
receives the homage of the vassal
rulers and feudatory Princes of India, on his coming visit to that great
dependency, not in the mere uniform of a field marshal, but arrayed
in his coronation robes, decked with
the crown Jewels, with the crown on
his head, and In his hand the sceptre, from which will dazzle the
greatest diamond in the world, the
five-hundred-odd carat Star of Africa. It will be the first occasion of
the crown jewels ever leaving Britain, and, representing, as they do,
a value of many, many millions of
pounds sterling, the most extraordinary precautions will be adopted for
their safety in transit between the
Tower of London, where they now
repose,  and  the  city  of  Delhi.
In thus arraying himself in the
crown Jewels at the Durbar, King
George is prompted not by any mere
desire of persona] display—for he
Is a man of the most simple tastes
—but because he appreciates the
Impression which will be created
among the natives of every class
and creed by appearing before them
wearing the Koh-i-Noor, which for
many centuries was the symbol of
empire and of supreme power in India, and for the sake of which civil
wars, appalling massacres, terrible
invasions, conspiracies, assassina-.
tions and hideous tortures without
number have taken place. Probably
there is no precious stone in the
world that has a more blood-stained
history than the Koh-1-Noor, which
came into the possession of the late
Queen Victoria some seventy years
ago.
According to legend, before figuring as the principal crown jewel of
the oldtinie emperors of India, the
Koh-I-Noor formed one of the eyes
of a particularly sacred native idol,
and, of course, there is a possibility
that some of the most fanatic priests
and worshippers of Hie sect concerned may attempt to recover this
priceless relic while on Indian soil,
and great precautions will in consequence thereof have to be devised
for its safety.
Another symbolic jewel which is
to figure at Durbar is the celebrated
Unia, which will adorn either tlie
throne of King George at the homage eermony, or else the canopy
above his throne. It is a jewelled
bird about twelve inches long,
shaped like a pigeon, with an exaggerated tail. Rubies, diamonds,
emeralds and pearls are strewn
about tlie quivering feathers of delicate golden filigree work. It holds
a priceless ruby in Its bill and an
emerald of immense size and lustre
hands from Its breast.
King George wishes to bring this
fact home to the people of India and
to impress upon their minds, de visu,
that tlie Koh-i-Noor and the Ulna,
the two symbols of Indian Empire,
are in his possession, Tlie Unia figured in olden times on the canopy
above the throne of the great Indian
emperor, Tlppoo Sahib, and after!
being taken from him was presented
by Hie East India Company to King
George III. Sometimes It is hown
on the principal sideboard nt the
State banquets at Windsor Castle
and Buckingham Palace, a conspicuous feature anion gthe $15,000,000
worth nf gold plate dlplayed on
thi si occasions. Hut more often it
is to I.,-, seen on the royal dinner t;i-
ble at Widsor, and is an object of
particular admiration and interest
to Queen Mary.
G. T. P. COAST PLANS
Captain Nicholson Tells What Will Be
Done This Summer in the Natter
of Service
Through Connection Will Be Given
With Stewart by the Big-
Steamers
Announcement is made by Captain C. H. Nicholson, manager of the
Grand Trunk Pacific steamship line,
that the summer schedule, which
goes into effect on April 19., provides
for the extension of the service by
the Prince George and the Prince
Rupert to Stewart via Prince Rupert
according to southern exchanges.
The extension of the service to Stew-
are has been found necessary owing
to the Increasing travel and possibilities of great developments at and
near Stewart during the coming
summer. The Prince George, which
broke her port column on Sunday
when nearing the dock at Seattle, is
being repaired at Esquimau and
will be ready to join the Prince Rupert when the twice-a-week service
begins on April  19.
Captain Nicholson said: "Prospects are that this will be one of
the busiest seasons in the history of
the Pacific coast. There is every
indication of an exceptionally heavy
tourist travel. In the east capitalists have turned their eyes to the
far west, and we are moving with a
view to having large commercial
developments all along the coast
during the next few years."
Captain Nicholson gave a general
outline of the new steamer purchased by him while in the east for
the coastal trade, as already mentioned. The boat will be called the
Prince John, and will be used in the
trade between Prince Rupert and
Queen Charlotte Islands. She Is 185
feet long with a 30 foot beam, and
has a passenger accommodation of
2 00 people, 50 saloon and 150 steerage passengers.
"This boat is about the most complete ship I have seen. She was built
in 1910 at Glasgow and is especially
equipped for rough weather, having
double bottoms and larg ehulkheads,
and plenty of horsepower. We want
a boat that is capable of combatting
the heavy weather on the Sound and
one that will be able to weather any
storm in these waters. The Prince
John leaves Glasgow at once, and
will arrive here in June, via the
Horn."
Arrangements have been made for
wharves and office buildings to be
erected at Vancouver at the expiry
on April 3 of the leases on the property secured between Main street
and Gore avenue. The plans provide
for 740 feet of waterfrontage and
show two piers projecting out into
the inlet sufficient to give four
berths to each pier. On these piers
will be built freight sheds.
"It is our intention," said Captain
Nicholson, "to commence the erection of a modern fireproof office
building and warehouse at the foot
of Main street almost immediately.
The office building will be designed
to make a fitting termination to the
street and will lie three or more
Btorlse in height. This will be situated on the property now occupied
by the iron works building. On the
ground floor will be the ticket office
and general waiting rooms of sufficient accommodation for our rapidly
increasing passenger traffic. The upper stories will be occupied exclusively for our offices. Tlie building
to the east of our office building
will be fitted up for stores and
warehouses and will be partially
occupied by the company's freight'
office and storerooms."
BRISTOL  CLASS
Discussing the vessels which are
to be built for the Canadian Navy,
the British News of Canada says:
The vessels of the Bristol class
are protected cruisers of medium
size, high speed and powerful armament. They are designed for scouting, for the protection of trading
vessels, and for the destruction of
such vessels as may be let loose by
an enemy to prey on British commerce.
They are much smaller than the
cruisers of the Invincible class,
which are intended to be real battleships of higher speed than the
Dreadnoughts; but they are considerably larger than the scout steamers already iu commission of the
Boadica class. The tonnage of the
Boadica is 3,160; that of the Bristol
is 4,800. The Bristols are somewhat slower, but they are much
more powerfully armed.
The selection of this type for the
Canadian fleet was made by the Admiralty after the most careful deliberation, and for reasons that are
already becoming more clearly obvious. Naval experts are all agreed
that Great Britain needs a very
strong fleet, even if there is no danger at all of invasion. The real
danger is that an enemy's swift, but
powerful cruisers may be employed
in destroying helpless merchant
ships, and thus cripping Britain's finances, to say nothing of endaner-
ing her food supply. The specific
motive for the Bristol cruisers is to
use them for the protection of British trading ships, and this is why
the Admiralty prefers Bristols to
Dreadnoughts. The latter can patrol
the North Sea to prevent the invasion of Great Britain; the former are
charged with the more difficult, if
not more important task of keeping
the nation from being put and kept
in a state of siege.
There is no need to say much
about destroyers. When the torpedo was made perfect as a powerful
missile of destruction, it became necessary to produce "torpedo boats"
from which to launch them. This
gave occasion for the construction
of torpedo boat destroyers, boats of
comparatively large size, effective
armament, and enormous speed.
These are now well known all
over the civilized world as destroyers. For shore and harbor protection they are perfectly adapted, and
they are supposed to act in co-operation with submarines on the one
hand and with fast cruisers and battleships on the other. Destroyers
are certain to play a prominent and
effective part in the next great naval
battle wherever and whenever it
may take place.

At the meeting Lieut.-Col. Davidson, of the Eighth Royal Rifles,
Quebec, made a complaint about the
short barrel Ross rifle, which he
said did not compare with the match
Ross rifle with the result that young
shots who competed against men
armed with the match rifle were discouraged and gave up shooting.
It was pointed out that a big issue
of later pattern Ross riflen v ^s to
be made to obviate this. Col.
Hughes announced that an effort
would be made to have the 303 calibre bullet replaced by a .2S0 calibre
throughout the Empire, as be'ng
much more effective with a lower
trajectory.
Earl Grey expressed the hope that
the prize list would eventually be so

have served their best days on the
diamond, and their future careers
will continue for only a brief period
at best, and their places will be
filled with youngsters from the minor leagues.
The managers of the clubs fully
appreciate the seriousness of the
situation; this is shown by the mad
rush for young players at the beginning of every season. And from
this competition has arisen an evil
greater even than the deteriorating
of the stars.
One or two of the clubs are getting all the really good men and the
National and American league series
are each simply resolving into a race
between two or three of the clubs.
As a remedy for this deplorable state
of affairs a prominent baseball mag-
note makes the following suggestion:
"Suppose the club owners should
get together every winter and place
in a recptacle slips of paper containing the names of all the first basemen, in a.nother receptacle the
names of all the second basemen,
and so on down the line of players
of different positions, and then each
club owner draw a team for his city
for the following year, of course obligating himself to pay the salary
provided for in the contract originally signed by the player. This
would hurt some of the owners who
believe in keeping down the salaries.
"The scheme would be as fair for
one club as another, and would have
the effect of dealing a solar plexus
blow to the selfish set now running
over the weaker teams and turning
a deaf ear to all offers to purchase
or trade for superfluous talent.
"The suggestion of drawing for
players would naturally break up
the teams and create 'paregorical'
pains among some of the club owners, but these same men would learn
before the end of the season that the
general attendance wolud be improved to such a remarkable extent
that they would be well repaid for
their sacrifices."
come west to join the Vancouver
team this season. In support of
this runior they point to the fact
that Joe Cattarinieh has been appointed manager of the Nationals
instead  of Lalonde.
Con Jones says he expects these
men to join the Vancouvers this
year, but members of the New
Westminister Lacrosse Club think
the possibility pretty slim. It is a
cinch that these French-Canadians
would sooner play with a team
composed entirely of their own
countrymen, particularly as that aggregation is at the head of Lacrosse in the East. Added to that
they feel that Newsy Lalonde had
just about enough of bucking up
against New Westminister lacrosse
players when with Vancouver before.
The New Westminister lacrosse
team have received an invitation
from the Nationals to play exhibition games in the east on May 24
and 27 before the N. L. U. season
opens. The question of whether
they will accept will be discussed at
the annual meeting of the B. C. L.
A., which takes place the last of
this month when the season's schedule Is being prepared.

SELECTING  TEAM
With the opening of the baseball

the big leagues are beginning to ask
themselves whether baseball Is going
back or not. At present, as far as
major leagues are concerned, at
any rate, appearances are much In
favor of the affirmative, there can
be no doubt in the eyes of the close
student of the game that America's
national pastime Is slowly deteriorating. The present day galaxy of
stars reached its zenith four or five
years ago, and ever since then the
beadliners have been gradually dropping back to the minors.
It is certain that such great stars

(Continued from Page One)
uation of Canada being about eight
millions. I also have, if any one
wishes to avail himself of it, the
name of every single member of this
organization and how it was fanned
into existence of anti-British interest. The honorable member for
Swansea also mentioned, or inferred,
that there were ho papers west of
Winnipeg, advocating the protection
policy, and insinuated that there
was hardly a paper which supported
anything else but the free trade policy. Those statements are made unintentionally, no doubt, but they are
absolutely contrary to the fact, and,
I thing it is the duty of anyone who
realizes that it is so, to take the
opportunity of clearly showing and
proving that they are such. I have
the pleasure of knowing many of the
editors or owners of those papers. I
have here a list of seven or eight
papers west of Winnipeg which are
Protectionist up to the hilt. 'The
West Regina,' of October 26, 1910,
contained  the  following:
" 'Under present conditions American capital is pouring into this
country and establishing Canadian
branches of great United States industries. If tue tariff is reduced
materially this influx of money and
factories will cease. Canadian raw
material will cross the line to be
manufactured by the United States
workmen into finished articles of
commerce for the Canadian market.
Why take the work away from Canadian  workmen?'
No Free Trade Movement
"The assertion which has been
made for party purposes in this
country that there is a free trade
movement in Canada in the sense
we mean, is quite contrary to facts.
What, has been called a free trade
movement is really a movement for
the readjustment of tariffs, and a
movement that must periodically
take place in all protected countries,
according to the law of supply and
demand. That was purposely misnamed by tlie Radical press for party purposes. 1 would like to emphasize that such misrepresentation
made for the interest of parties does
much to upset, good feeling, and it
is n regretable fact also that the extraordinary ignorance which is
shown in this country about our empire is a matter of unending astonishment to our fellow-countrymen
overseas.    Attempts have been made
to prove also that there is a strong
desire in other parts of the empire
in support of free trade. In which
other Dominions is it manifest? If
you take Australia there you have
a labor government which is protectionist, and protects its labor and
the products of labor in every shape
and form. Does that evince any desire for free trade, and is there any
evidence in favor of free trade in
New Zealand or South Africa? I
have personally visited most of
t.iose countries, and lived and
worked in almost all of them, and I
failed to see any trace whatever of
free trade as we know it In this
country.
"I go further, and, speaking from
experience, say that practically no
free trader ever leaves these shores
and permanently resides in any section of the British Empire without
openly admitting, when he has seen
for himself, that although he was
a free trader when be left England
he is now a staunch protectionist. I
have met scores of men who held out
for a long time—mainly Scotsmen,
who are very obstinate in the matter
of giving up their views oi- changing
their opinions, but, speaking generally, I do not know a single one
among all those whom 1 have met in
the many years that I have spent
abroad, who has ultimately advocated free trade as beneficial either
to this country or to any section of
the empire. I refer, of course, to
practical men—one does not meet
many theorists in our Dominions or
Colonies.
Impel lal Unity
"This debate might go on indefinitely without any resultant benefit
to the empire. Party divides us so
much that it is impossible to arrive
at a middle course which might be
in the interests of the empire. I
have fought two elections on this
question of Imperial unity, and have
tried to get to a higher plane than
that of mere party, to see If the
obstacles cannot be overcome. If
we cannot secure Imperial unity by
or through Imperial preference it
seems to me that it may be possible
by some definite or non-party step
ultimately to bring us into closer
intercourse with our kinsmen across
the seas. Although from many
speeches it would appear that there
is no hurry about the matter the
situation of the empire today demands unusual effort from every
member of this house, and I hope
that before this debate concludes the
government will state if they have
any suggestions to make for promot
ing the cause of Imperial unity. Although the various Dominions have
their own parliaments, we have to
recollect that this is the imperial
parliament and the mother of parliaments, and that collectively our Dominions look to us to safeguard
their interests. This parliament,
however, as at present constituted,
is imperial in name only. Just as
our empire has expanded, so must
we expand our constitution to cope
with the present situation unless we
want it to run the risk of disintegration. As it is evident that no form
of emperial preference will be accepted by the present government, I
suggest that as a means toward imperial unity the government should
consider the advisability of appointing a committee, representing all
sections of the House, to go expeditiously into the question of the commercial and other relations between
the different parts of the empire,
with a view to ascertaining in what
way we can improve and permanently strengthen the ties between us. I
emphatically maintain that if such a
committee were appointed and took
evidence, barring matters of a controversial nature, the government
would obtain several valuable suggestions to lay before the next imperial conference.
An Overseas Desire
"Prom experience gained in some
twenty years in various parts of the
empire, 1 am convinced that the oft-
made statement 'Let the Mother
Country lead, and we shall follow,'
truly expresses the desire of our fellow-subjects oversea. There is a
universal desire, bordering on anxiety, that we should coniDine our
forces in some more definite manner. To whatever section of the
empire you might go—and I have
been in three sections only recently
—the feeling does exist uninfluenced
by party politics, that all is not well
in the empire. There is a real anxiety for the future. That may be
due to the increasing strength of another power, or to the influx into
various parts of the empire of alien
blood, bearing no allegiance to the
British flag, or to the consciousness
of tho extraordinary apathy with
which so large a section of I lie British public regard the empire; but,
whatever the cause, there does exist
the feeling that while there is time
steps should be taken to evolve some
means of consolidating our interests
and of knitting together the various
parts of the empire in some real and
effective manner, instead of depending mainly on sentiment, as we do
at the present time. In my opinion
the oly solution of this difficult and
complex problem, which Is at present
blocked at every turn by party poll-
tics, is that should a committee as I
have suggested should be apponted
to devise some means of creating a
permanent imperial council or senate by which, once.for all, matters
of imperial interest might be raised
above the plane of party politics. I
intend to take the earliest opportunity of asking the Prime Minister if
be will take some steps to this end,
and I hope when I do so that honorable members opposite, who contend
that the welfare of the empire is as
safe in their hands as in the hands
of honorable members on this side
of the house, will do their best to
support me in endeavoring to-.press
the matter to a successful issue. I
thank the house for its Indulgence
on this occasion on which I have addressed them."

having attempted an assault upon

In the case of J. H. Quann, of the
Rainier Hotel, charged with supplying liquor after hours without a
license, Magistrate Shaw in Vancouver found that three of the witnesses
who had testified to getting liquor
after hours were taking bona fide
meals in the dining room and no offence was committed in serving them
as guests; but in the case of one
man named Butler, he found he did
not take a bona fide meal with his
liquor, and In that case there was a
technical breach of the liquor license
bylaw. At the same time he believed
that Mr. Quann had been honestly
desirous of obeying the law, and as
this was only a test case he would
impose the minimum fine of $5.

LAST   YEAR
REAL ESTATE  OWNERS IN
Western   Canada
MADE
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures
obtainable, over One Hundred Million Doiars wus made by real estate
owners in growing cities and towns
or Western Canada last year. This
vast wealth was exclusive of improvements and represented actual
increase in land values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg  Free   Press  prove that In
eight Western Canadian Cities the
value of land alone—not counting
improvements—increased 562 per
cent for the last, five years-—an annual Increase of 112 per cent for
each city during the last five years.
These figures indicate that investments in live, growing cities in Western Canada are as safe and sure as
an investment can be, and that 100
per cent, profit each year Is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THEY    WILL   UNDOUBTEDLY
MAKE $100,000,000 MORE
You have an oportunity now to
participate in these immense profits
by being one of the original purchasers of town lots in the Grand
Trunk Pacific addition to the fast
Ki-owing Western Canadian cities,
otherwise known  as
GRAND    TRUNK    PACIFIC    RAILWAY DIVISION POINTS
WATROUS,   MELVILLE,   WAIN-
WRIGHT, BIGGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing Division Points and in the town-
site of Tofield an opportunity for the
investor to share In the large profits
lhat are sure to accrue as a result
of the rapid and substantial growth
that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division Points and well located
cities and towns in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not
offer townsites pr additions so located as to make Investments in them
Of questionable value. The object In
selling- these lots at the low prices
at which they are offered Is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which the Grand Trunk
Pacific will derive vastly more benefit than  from the sale of lots.
Now is the time to buy. Choice

and 10 per cent a month. You make
your purchase direct and secure title
