George Tite Is Elected President for
Year—Others Given Places on
Executive
The Prince Rupert Conservative
Association held its annual meeting
in the Melntyre Hall Wednesday
evening. As the occasion was the
one upon which the officers for the
year in that party were chosen, naturally a good deal of interest was
manifested. This interest was made
more marked in view of the fact that
there had been a federal election
held so recently and the supporters
of the party were feeling very enthusiastic. , There was known to be
a strong desire in many quarters to
obtain places on the executive committee for the year and accordingly
the Interest was somewhat increased
on that account.
A rule was adopted by the executive in response to a resquest by a
number who wished to have the membership list closed down some time
before the meeting. Accordingly it
was advertised that no members
would be enrolled after Saturday
evening, and admission would be by
ticket. This avoided the confusion
which attended the enrolling of members on the night of the meeting,
with the consequent confusion that
a'ways followed. The rule worked
a hardship in some cases, where
strong supporters who had not been
were not aware of the rule being so
stringently enforced, found it impossible to have a voice in the election.
Fortunately, the number so excluded
was small.
Enthusiastic Meeting
The attendance was large, and
most enthusiastic. J. A. rvirkpatrick,
last year's president, occupied the
chair, and with him on the platform
were William Manson, M.P.P.; Robert deB. Hovell of Hazelton and the
secretary, Dr. J. A.'Quinlan.
After the reading of the minutes
and other necessary routine business
the meeting proceeded to elect its
officers. It was suggested that short
speeches should be given by the candidates nominated but the time that
would thus be consumed was felt to
be a barrier upon this and it was
voted down.
Elect Officers
Before the election of the executive was taken up the following honorary members were elected unanimously: Honorary president, Hon.
R. L. Borden, K. C.J honorary vice
presidents, Hon. Richard McBride,
H. S. Clements,- M. P., and William
Manson, M. P. P.
Proceeding to the election of officers it was decided in order to expedite matters that the thirteen who
should compose the officers and the
executive should be selected on the
first ballot, the highest thirteen being elected members of the executive, and that from these the meeting should later select 4he four officers. This was acted upon and resulted in the selection of the following thirteen, by the vote opposite
their names, from a total list of
fifty-six:
Geo. D. Tite  214
J.  E.  Merryfield  207
J.  A.  Kirkpatrick  200
J.  G. Scott  205
Geo.   W.  Kerr  203    '
M. M. Stephens  192
O.  H. Nelson  187
Thos.   Maitland  184
J. Wynne  156
F.   Cullin      156
J. H. Hllditch  144
Dr. Quinlan  137
W. J. McCutcheon  134
While the count was being conducted tbe time was taken up with
an impromptu programme of music,
speeches and recitations by members
of the association.
Following the announcement of
the thirteen selected, the election of
officers followed. In no case was
a ballot found necessary, the choice
being unanimous in each case, and
was as follows:
President—Geo. W. Tlte.
First Vice.-Pres.—M. M. Stephens.
Second Vice.-Pres.—F. E. Cullin.
Sec.-Treas.—O. H. Nelson.
District Convention
It was decided that the high nine
on  the list of those elected  In  the
executive should be delegates to the
Skeena District convention to be
held in this city on Saturday afternoon. At this meeting general business will be transacted and delegates elected to the Provincial con-
month.

IN NEW UNIFORM
Chief  of  Polite   Has   Now   Striking
Apparel—Friends   Remember
the Hat
W. H. Vickers, chief of police, has
now donned a uniform In keeping
with the position he bears. The
tunic is an unostentatious one, but
very neat and smart in appearance.
Unfortnuately, however, there was
no head dress provided with the new
outfit. Feeling that the chief should
have a fitting cap to accompany the
rest of the uniform a few of his
friends about the Government block
had a rather striking hat "built to
order" and in the presence of a party
of friends a few days ago it was presented to him by W. E. Fisher. It
resembled the French army head
dress of a century ago but had a brilliant inscription across the front,
"Chief of Police—The Terror of All
Evildoers."
PUBLIC PROTECTED
Provision is Made in the Sewer Bylaw
to Overcome any Objections.
Engineer   Is   Heady   to   Extend   the
Main if This Step is Made
Necessary
The report of the city engineer
presented at the last meeting of the
city council conveyed the information
that there was sufficient provided
for in the Hays Creek sewer bylaw
to provide a temporary means of
carrying the flow from the sewer at
the manhole where it is designed it
shall end out beyond the entrance to
the creek.
The idea which the city engineer
has in leaving the sewer uncompleted out into the harbor is that the
plans of the G. T. P. with respect
to the works they will undertake
there are not yet fully settled. Mr.
Kelliher, when here last summer,
went into the subject, requesting that
it be left until they settled upon the
plans, when the sewer could be constructed to conform with this.
The city engineer and Mr. Kelliher were united upon the plan now
adopted and did not fear any inconvenience. Colonel Davis, however,
has made provision that should there
be any objectionable feature it can
be done away with by a temporary
continuation of the sewer seawards.
Under these circumstances it
would seem that the public is well
protected in the matter.

Zero Weather
Alberta is in the graps of a severe
cold snap, in fact, one of the earliest
mercury dips on record. This section
of the prairie Is quite used to below
zero weather in the latter part of
December and January and February,
but the present situation Is most unprecedented.
 o	
Mock Mayoralty Contest.
The Presbyterian Club held a
most entertaining electoral contest
on Wednesday evening, when Frank
Ellis was elected mayor over W. G.
Dennis. Very amusing speeches were
delivered by both aspirants, but each
appealed to a dlffeient class, for the
successful candidate captured all the
men and the defeated one the ladles.

Cannot t'sc  Venire
A case that has been pending In
the supreme court of the province
for some time relati-ve to the use of
the words, Grand Trunk or Grand
Trunk Pacific, In connection with
companies other than the railway referred to, has been decided by Mr.
Justice Clement in Vancouver. He
has decided that the anmes cannot
be made use of by other companies.
 o	
In New Offices
David H. Hays has moved into his
new offices at the corner of Second
Avenue and Second Street. The location is an exceedingly bright and
cheery one and Mr. Hays has a splendidly appointed office his new block.
The finishing of It makes it among
the very best in Prince Rupert. Mr.
Hays has all preparations made for
the sale of Section Two on November 29.
MAY BE TROUBLE
C.T.P.

Near Yellotvhpad Pass the Two Lines
Hun Close to One Another on
Mountain Side
Judging from the location of the
C. N. R. main line west of the summit of the Yellowhead Pass, between
hte west end of Moose Lake and the
point where the lines swings south
to follow Albreda Pass, there is a
possibility of a series of injunctions
on behalf of the (i. T. P. as long
as the list of provisions in a big
league constitution, says the Edmonton Capital. If there is to be trouble,
which seems very probable, it will
start when the C. N. R. commences
to cut out its right-of-way along the
mountain sides between Miles 27 and
Mile 47, B. C, for it is almost inevitable that they will be blowing
the fragments from their rock cuts
right down on the G. T. P. grade,
which will be anywhere from 30 feet
to 360 feet below them.
The situation is this: The Grand
Trunk Pacific line starts to descend
toward the bottom of the Fraser Valley with a one per cent grade at the
west end of Moose Lake. This grade,
which is the heaviest on the whole
National Transcontinental system, is
made necessary through the fact that
the road has to make a descent of
more than 1,000 feet in the twenty
miles between Moose Lake and Tete
Jaune Cache. On the otlfer hand,
the C. N. R. has to hold Its grade
and accordingly must place its line
higher up on the rugged slope of
the Fraser Valley so that it will get
over the Albreda Pass without getting down into a hole from which it
must climb out again. From the
west end of Moose Lake, where both
lines cross the Fraser River, the
C. N. R., at an elevation of about
thirty feet above the G. T. P., the
forme line uses a seven-tenths of one
per cent grade. The difference between the seven-tenths and the one
per cent grade used by the G. T. P.
brings the C. N. R. about 360 feet
above the other line where the two

Mann. Both lines are on the same
side of the Fraser River.
There are places on this twenty
mile stretch where the G. T. P. will
be built on the face of a mountain
slope and the C. N. R. will be located 100 feet or more above on the
ON VISIT TO   INDIA!
BASEBALL SEASON
King and Queen Have Departed for the
Durbar Under Special
Convoy.
The \isit of Their Majesties Marks
it Precedent In tlie History
of the Empire
A few days ago London bade goodbye to King George and Queen Mary,
when their majesties sailed on the
steamship Medina for India, where
the great Coronation Durbar will be
held next month. Rear Admiral Sir
George Keppel is in command of the
royal vessel and also of the naval
escort, consisting of the first class
cruisers Cochrane, Argyll, Defence
and Natal.
While King George is an excellent
sailor and able to keep his sea legs
in the roughest weather, Queen Mary
is not always able to withstand mal
de nier, and for her benefit a rough
weather cabin has been fitted up
amidship. Here the movements of
the vessel in a storm will not be fe't
so severely as in the royal suite forward. Electric fans and electric
heaters are fitted up all over the
ship.
About twenty ladies and gentlemen
in waiting accompanied the King and
Queen on the Medina, and special
cabins have been prepared for them.
Plans for the stay of' the royal
party In India, during which the King
will be formally crowned as Emperor
of that vast and ancient country, are
practically completed.
The King and Queen will make
their state entrance into Delhi on December 7, and this date, as well as
December 12, the actual day of the
Durbar, will be general holidays
throughout India. On December 12
a royal proclamation will be read in
every town and village of the Empire, royal salutes will be fired from
every gun in India and the whole
country will be ablaze with illuminations at night. The thirteenth will
be devoted to a petople's fete all over
the land.
All of the ruling princes and great
chiefs of India will be commanded to
the Durbar. Envoys from Nepal and
Afghanistan and the Maharajah of
Bhutan will also be present. It is
expected that fully half a million
people will greet the King at Delhi
and will witness the spectacles connected with the Durbar.
The departure of the King is an
epoch making event in the history of
Indoor Clubs of the City Will Enter
Upon Schedule Early in
December
The indoor baseball teams of the
city are preparing for a good season's
sport this year. A meeting of the
representative of the clubs of the city
was held last night, when five teams
entered for the contests. These are
the Crescents, representing the Baptist Brotherhood; Royal Dlues Empress Maple Leafs, Anglican Athletic
Club, and the Quill Drivers.
Each club represented is to appoint
a delegate to compose a committee
that is to draw up a schedule not
later than November 23 so that a
start can be made early in December,
probably the first week in that
month.

Pretty Calendar
T. J. Davidson of the Peerless
Studio of this city has a very attractive calendar for the year 1912. It
is adorned with a photo of Hays Cove
showing the Sixth Ave. trestle with
touches of scenery about the place.
The cloud effects and shadows are
excellent in the photo, which makes
the ca'endar a real work of art.

. Next week the Journal will appear as a morning daily paper,
hoping thereby to better serve the public than has been possible
as a semi-weekly. In changing the paper local subscribers will
be credited with the amount paid by them on their semi-weekly
subscription and that will be applied towards their daily subscription.
The announcement of a daily edition has been received very
kindly in the city and the Journal feels complimented indeed by
the many kind remarks make ebout it by the citizens. It will
be the endeavor of the management of the paper to glv? to residents as good as can be given. The policy of equal rights to all
classes in the community to their own views on questions of
public Interest will be pursued. The Journal has no quarrel with
the men that differ In opinion from the views held by the paper
but Is ready to accede to every man the right to think for
himself and to decide on the  issues.

the effect of blasting operations nn
the higher elevation with five or six
hundred workmen busy in the cut
below, or with a construction train
moving along the finished track. A
similar difficulty has been encountered during the past summer where,
In the country between the McLeod
River and the Athabasca, the C. N. R.
grade ran too close to the G. T. P.,
endangering the grade of the later
line from slides of the former's fills.
Injunctions on the C. N. R. contractors were served on these ocrosions
and In some places the work is still
untouched pending a new locution of
the C. N. R. right-of-way.
There is every probability that injunctions will be utilized freely by
the National Transcontinental to protect their grade from dislocated
pieces of mountain which the C. N. R.
will set flying next summer.

A movement is on foot in connection with Morrison's bowling alley
to hold a series of team competitions
In the city. It Is also proposed to
hold some outside contests between
the strongest team available here
and similar teams in cities in the
south. The results in such a case
would  have to be telegraphed.
At the present time an auction sale
of lands put up by the government to
meet the demands of the taxes is
being held In the provincial buildings. The list of lands so offered
is a long one and Includes all classes
of property.
A perusal of the list is interesting,
recalling as it does the blasted hopes
of some years ago with respect to
certain places that were expected to
become great commercial centres.
These are contained in the list of
lots, a record of wild speculations
in some cases and in others evidence
of first class chances wliich, however,
failed to materialize and in consequence the owners have let the pro-
erty go.
The prices realized for the property offered for sale has been good
and the provincial assessor and collector, A. Cuthbert, is well pleased
with the results. The sale started
yesterday and will be kept going until  all  the lots are sold.

IMPORTANT  STATION
Best Equipment on the Coast is Being
Provided at Digby Island
Headquarters.
it is Reported That the New Steamer
for Departmenl Is to be
Placed Here
The sub-station under the marine
department on Digby Island will
soon be ready for business. The
buildings are now well in hand and
the whfehar, which is of re-inforced
eroncrete,  is being put in place.
The station is quite an elaborate
one and while the intention seemed
to be to make it a sub-station to the
main depot at Victoria the works
done here would indicate that it will
probably become quite as important
as the one at the provincial capital.
It is said to have been the intention to station the new steamer being built by the department in the
east at Digby, thus leaving the
Quadra for the southern portion of
the coast.
There is no question that for some
years to come the heaviest part of
the work on the coast in the matter
of locating buoys and lights and
other aids to navigation will be In
the north, In the part that is just
now really opening up, Under these
conditions the need of the best equipment is at this port, which accounts
for the decision of the department to
put the new steamer in service out
of here.
The equipment now going in place
here at the Digby station is far superior to any thing at Victoria, so
that there should be the best of facilities for handling all the aids to
navigation required in the north

betterment. Mr. Taylor secured
from Judge Doherty a promise thai
a new schedule of wages would be
prepared, based on Commissioner
Cowan's report and that special allowances would be made for employees in this province in consldera'

I PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Friday, November 17, 1911.
Mankind on Earth
When did mankind first begin to
exercise his intelligence on this
planet? Estimates have varied from
anything between the early chronological calculations, none of which
required more than four numerals,
and the researches of scientists,
which have been expressed in as
many as six.
Des Vignoles, in the preface to his
"Chronology of Sacred History," asserts that he collected upwards of
200 different calculations, the shortest of which reckoned only 3,433
years between the creation of the
world and the commencement of the
vulgar era,, and the longest 0,984.
The difference amounts to thirty-
five' centuries, but that difference is
infinitesimal compared with the various theories which geologists and
archaeologist students of prehistoric
times have advanced. And even
these are thrown into the shade by
the contentions of Dr. W. Allen
Sturge, M.V.O., whose researches
are described in the first volume of
the "Proceedings of the Prehistoric
Society of East Anglia," of which
he is president.
The conclusion of the whole matter may fitly be put first. "Neolithic
man goes back to some period between 200,000 and 300,000 years
ago, and it would seem that we have
not even then reached the beginning
of the period. Drift man was flourishing from a million years to about
seven hundred thousand years ago.
Neither figure Is a limit; the later
figure is probably nearer a limit than
the earlier. Between the end of the
Drift and the beginning of the Neolithic we have the great 'Cave' periods, which would thus seem to
have occupied anything from 200,-
000 to. 400,000 years. Behind the
Drift man are vast ages of which
we are only beginning to get the first
glimpses. But it now Beems evident
that man was already on earth in
early Pliocene times, and we must
not be surprised if proofs are ultimately brought forward that genus
homo goes back even farther than
that. It has become almost a shibboleth that man first appeared in
Pleistocene times; but I affirm that
it is no more than a shibboleth. There
is absolutely nothing a priori for or
against the statement; it is entirely
a question of evidence.
"The evidence is very difficult to
weigh, and only first class experts
are jujstified in pronouncing upon
it. Expjert knowledge of the highest
description may as yet be scarcely
obtainable, but it is the duty of all
who are actively working in this field
to increase their knowledge by all
means in their power. In this way
questions that today are almost insoluble will become clearer in a few
years' time, and discussion as between
nature made and human work will
be reduced to comparative certainty."
This is the remarkable conclusion
to a remarkable paper. Dr. Sturge
admits that his theroies must inevitably run counter to the generally
received opinions of geologists as to
the sequence of events in the Pleistocene period, and, also, to a large
extent to the views hitherto held by
prehistoric archaelogists regarding
the Neolithic, and, in a less degree,
the Palaeollth or ages of man. But
he asks them to put on one side any
preconceived views on the subject
and suspend judgment until all of
the data are before them. Dr. Sturge
is still pursuing his Investigations,
but, as he says, the time has come
when many minds should set to work
at the great problems Involved.
His attention was first drawn to
the subject about 1896, when he had
Tecently acquired two collections
containing large number af Palaeolithic Implements He was not a
little surprised to find that not a
few of these Implements had well
defined scratchings upon them. Two
or three years afterwards Dr. Sturge
had the opportunity of acquiring
some G.000 or 6,000 of the commoner types of Neolithic flint implements, scrapers, fabricators, etc.,
that had been collected from Beveral
places in NorthweBt Suffolk. And
when looking out for a house on settling in England after many years
abroad he had the good fortune to
secure one in what has proved to be
the very centre of the most prolific
area of the country from the point
Of view of the Stone Age. Dr. Sturge
has, therefore, been In a position for
nearly two years past to study the
curious problems suggested by an
examination of these flints on the
very place where they are found, and
with ample leisure.
The neighborhood of Ickllngham is
probably one of the richest in the
world for human flint work of the
Neolithic age. Large numbers of
very fine Implements of all kinds
have been found there during the
last half-century. Every peasant is
more or less expert In these things,
and school children bring up their
little.bags of stones for inspection
and purchase. Although the fine
things are no longer turning up in
the numbers prevalent a quarter of
a century ago, yet the fields are still
very rich in the rougher implements
just the class of implements from
which most may be learnt of the history of the period. The number of
these in Dr. Sturge's collection may
be counted by the 10,000, so that the
remarkable results which he brings
forward are based upon a very careful investigation.
A merely casual examination of
many of the Neolithic flint implements and flakes will show that their
human surfaces are not smooth and
Intact. The extremely hard substance of the flint is cut as though
the Implement had been made of
wax rather than flint. To anyone
who appreciates the conditions, Dr.
Sturge remarks, this widespread
scratching of humanly flaked flints
is a very staggering phenomenon.
The true explanation must accord
with the fact that on the highest
ground in the neighborhood a substance, as hard or harder than the
hardest flint, has been dragged over
the other flints under pressure. No
solution but that of ice action seems
to explain the prenomenon. Since
these implements were made there
has been at least one Ice sheet over
the country, which has obeyed the
laws of glacial action, has advanced
by slow degrees over the country,
picking up stones in its course and
dragging them along with it. To admit that a glacial period, has occurred
since human implements of Neolithic
types were formed is to revolutionize all views on glacial geology.
Dr. Sturge boldy advances it as
the only explanation of this writing
on the flints. Since Neolithic man
came to Britain there has been an
ice age, he contends. This ice age
was not continuous, but was divided
up into sub-periods of glaclation separated from one another by pdriods
during which the ice was absent; and
this afteration recurred several
times, five at least, and probably
six. The proof of such alternation
lies in the presence on the same
areas of humanly-worked flints with
their humanly-made surfaces presenting sharply defined types of
scratching.
From evidence given in great detail, Dr. Sturge contends that the
work was done by man on flints 50,
60 or perhaps 80 thousand years ago,
which has not been subjected to glacial action, and therefore that the
last glaciation must be dated back
at least as far as that.
The first men to come back when
the Ice sheet was retreating to occupy the land in the relatively short
interval of inter-glaciation would be
of the toughest kind, bearing much
the same relation to the population
farther south than the Eskimos do
to the more favored populations.
Their implements are of the roughest, almost worthy of the name of
Neolithic eoliths, and Dr. Sturge is
now collecting some rather remarkable evidence that these Eskimo conditions recurred each time that man
came back after the retreat of the
ice sheet.
Dr. Sturge claim to have proved,
on irrefragable evidence, that the
Neolithic period lasted well over
200,000 years and probably 300,000.
"I even go so far as to say," he remarks, "that one great difficulty in
my estimation of the 'Drift' age is
to reconcile the vast periods involved
with the comparatively short period
of 300,000 years between the beginning of the penultimate Ice age a
million years ago, and its ending
700,000  years  ago."
MORE WIRELESS STATIONS
The question of providing a greater
wireless service for the shipping In-
tercBts of this coast was a subject
that received attention at a meeting
of the Vancouver Board of Trade. A
letter from the British Columbia
Packers' Association was read to the
meeting setting forth the need of
additional wireless stations, particularly between Cape Lazo and Prince
Rupert, which is at present entirely
unprovided. After listening to several arguments in the matter, the
board decided to petition the Federal
government for additional stations at
Alert Bay and Swanson Bay, as at
present there is no station in that
dangerous zone of navigation within
a stretch of 400 miles.

A girl has just been married In
Indiana whose maiden name was

The Informing cable did not mention

INDUSTRIAL COUNCIL
Method of Adjusting Labor Troubles in
the Old Land Has Been
Found.
Wlule Not Given Compulsory Powers
It Is Able to Exercise Great
influence
The government's action In appointing an industrial council of representative employers and workmen,
whose functions shall be to Inquire
Into matters referred to them In connection with labor disputes, and take
suitable action upon such disputes,
is generally welcome.
As au experiment it is well worth
making at a time when the nation
lias just passed through one great
industrial war, and there are ominous signs of another, even greater,
on the horizon.
The council, presided over by Sir
George Askwith, of the Board of
Trade, who has earned the name of
being a great conciliator, is so representative in character as to Invest
its recommendations with a strong
claim upon the respect and confidence of both capital and labor.
This council comprises some of the
great captains of British industry,
and also includes a number of trades
unionists, representing not only the
older and more solid unions, but also
the new type or more advanced and
aggressive societies.
The council is not, however, invested with compulsory powers. Sir
George Askwith, as chairman, has the
title of chief industrial commissioner.
The Lancashire trouble throws a
new light on the vexed question of
trades unionism in England.
Some unionists at the Yatefield
Mill, Burnley refused to work with
four non-union men, and sent in a
notice that they would strike on
Thursday. The employers in North
and Northeast Lancashire took up
the challenge and threatened a lockout if the strike took place at the
Burnley mill. The difficulty was
overcome by the four non-union men
joining the union. This was an
evasion rather than a settlement, but
it was welcomed as averting industrial trouble in Lancashire at a moment when all signs point to a busy
season in the cotton-spinning business.
The Times remarks:
"It is difficult to conceive that
any sensible man, left to himself,
would think it worth his while to
subject his family to privation merely because three or four non-union
men work in the same mill. This
kind of trouble comes from the subtle machinations of professional agitators, who care little about the welfare of those whom they duty with
inflammatory appeals to prejudice."
A private who had fought bravely
during the Boer war had occasion
to seek employment of a we'l known
general. This private had the misfortune to lose his nose while in
action.
The general was so tickled with
the appearance of the man that he
burst into a loud laughter, to the discomfiture of the soidier. When his
laughter had subsided, the general
said:
"My good fellow, where did you
lose your nose?"
"I lost my nose, sir," said the nettled private, "in the same battle that
you lost your head."

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
***************************
Oil is Satisfactory !
*
**************************
The Railway and Marine World
publishes an article written by Capt.
J. W. Troup of the C. P. R. relative
to the use of oil as a fuel in the
company's vessels. Capt. Troup pronounces the experiment a decided
success.    He says:
"After very careful consideration
of the subject during last year, the
C.P.R. management decided to equip
a few of its vessels on the British
Columbia coast, for the purpose of
testing the efficency of oil as compared with coal for fuel. Before
doing this the various aspects of the
question, as to speed, efficiency, supply and cost, were discussed, and the
result of this inquiry, together with
the experolence of others, indicated
clearly a decided advantage In the
use of oil.
"The first vessel to be equipped was
the Princess May, which was undergoing extensive repairs. While the
retorts were being made, two oil-
tight bulkheads were erected-In the
hull, these bulkheads runnings from
side to side of the ship. Two fore
and aft divisions were placed in compartment form, thus giving three
complete and independent oil tanks,
ureat care was exercised in the execution of the work, as it is found
more difficult to make steel work
tight for oil than for water. The
work was done by the B. C. Marine
Railways Co., and has proved an
entire success.
"The Princess May has three boilers, with three furnaces each. These
furnaces were fitted with the Cyclone burner. The principle of the
system Is an extension front on the
furnaces suggestive of the old-time
Dutch oven effect, and each front is
fitted with a burner, the oil being
atomized by a steam jet, and the
form of the jet is such as to set up
centrifulgal action, thus breaking up
the oil into small particles. It distributes the oil and therefore the
flame, following the corrugated furnace In circular form, thus utilizing
the entire surface, bottom and all.
i
"The oil used, in order to comply
with the government requirements, is
very heavy, and before passing
through the burner, is pumped
through a heater, raising the temperature to about 160 degrees. This
liquifies the oil, and allows a thorough atomization, and with a careful adjustment of the admission of
air, the fires burn with a very clear,
bright flame, and the boilers steam
freely.
"Formerly, when burning coal,
this vessel was unable to make the
desired speed at all times. There
were losses through cleaning of fires
and the handling of ashes, and on a
voyage where tides form such an
important feature, due to the necessity of passing through certain
channels at certain stages of the
tide, if the vessel fails to catch the
tide, it becomes necessary to anchor,
and thus lose still further time. It
will therefore be readily seen how
important it is to be able to secure
the speed when called for, and this
advantage has been gained in the
Princess May by the use of fuel oil.
It is now found that she can maintain an average speed with two hollers, just about equal to what she
had before with three boilers burning coal.
"One of the great advantages in
the use of oil is the steady steam
throughout the watch, and In fact
from day to day. With coal it is
up and down, and the operation of
cleaning fires has an injurious effect
on the boilers, while with oil there
is no cleaning of fires, and the temperature remains the same at all
times.
"The company's vessel, Princess
Charlotte, has also been fitted for
oil, the fuel being carried in her
double bottom, no special tanks being required. She has six boilers
with three furnaces in each. They
have all been fitted with Cyclone
burner0, and this vessel Is showing
very good resuItB.
"It is found that 3.75 barrels of
oil will do the work of one ton of
Vancouver  Island   coal.
"One of the great advantages in
the use of oil is its cleanliness and
the great saving in labor. No coal
trimmers are required, no gangs of
men to put the coal on board; or the
ashes overboard the number or firemen is very much reduced, and their
work is now comparatively easy. The
decks are not covered with cinders
and smut, and the time required for
taking coal on board each day is
more than cut in two.
"The company has constructed a
large tank in Vancouver with a capacity of 55,000 barrels of oil. There
has been placed near the wharf another tank of 1,000 barms. The oil
is transferred from the large tank
to the smalled one by means of a
steam pump, and  from  the smaller
one direct to the vessel's tanks by
an electric driven pump of sufficient
capacity to deliver about 1,000 barrels an hour on board.
'The company's officers are very
much pleased with the results so
far, and there is little doubt that the
greatfer number of the company's
vessels on the coast will soon be fitted for this fuel."
MINISTER BANQUETTEI)
KELOWNA—Residents of the
Okanagan Valley attended in large
numbers the banquet tendered the
Hon. Martin Burrell , minister of
agriculture, here a few nights ago.
In so doing they testified to the high
regard in which they hold their representative, and the honor conferred
upon their riding by Prime Minister
Borden In selecting Mr. Burrell for
the province's representative in the
Dominion cabinet.
The affair was one of the most
pleasant in the history of the valley, and was of a non-partisan nature. After the toast to "The King"
had been honored that of the "Guest
of the Evening" was proposed. Mr.
Burrel in responding touched on local affairs and conditions, but making no reference to the future policy
of the department over which he will
preside.

t OXSKItt ATIVK   EXECUTIVE
The local Conservatives, at a meeting on Wednesday evening, made
choice of the executive for tbe ensuing year. The members of the body
appear in another column and a
perusal of the names shows that It
is a very representative body. Fortunately the Conservative party In
Prince Rupert is strong enough to
elect several executives of equal numbers of good representative men who
would do their duty properly, honestly and with a view to the main-
talnence of the good name which
they bear. All cannot serve on the
executive. A choice has to be made
and that was done in open meeting
by the members of the association.
The executive of a party in power occupies an important position.
It stands as an interpreter of the
wishes of the general body of the
party to the member for the district. In this capacity it is essential that the men composing the executive should be men of good judgment and closely in touch with the
general pulse.
In the new executive such a choice
has been made and the vast majority of the Conservatives, as indicated by their votes, are well satisfied.
But while this may all be true,
the editor of the Empire, as usual,
is not satisfied. In his eyes the
executive is composed of dishonest
men, who continually hatch mischief
and evil.
The epithets applied to the members of the Conservative executive
by the Empire will molest the members but little, we think. They are
simply the latest recipients of the
same chaste terms that have been
used to describe in turn ail who
cross, whether designedly or by accident, the pathway of the editor of the
Empire. The venom will in turn be
passed towards some one else in due
course.
Lest there are those who might be
ro.'rled we wish to state that v.e do
not believe that any attempts have
been made to graft by last year's
executive. The personnel of the new
executive elected is a sufficient
guarantee that the association is to
be free from any attempts at graft
this year and there is not a member
of the executive who would not be
trusted quite as far as the Empire
could be trusted.
In the Conservative Association
the utmost good feeling exists in
spite of the studied efforts of a very
few men to work up for selfish purposes a feeling that there is friction. The executive has the assurance that it is supported and backed
up by the majority of the Conservatives of Prince Rupert—Conservatives who are Conservatives whether
their party wins or loses.
be one of the greatest countries in
the world, even if England never sent
a man or a pennypiece out there. The
mineral wealth is at yet untouched,
the greatest known coalfields lying
dormant—iron ore, copper, gold and
silver, in the northwest, timber; all
this is waiting the miner and prospector. This is all super-wealth. The
real staple industry, the finest of all
industries, is the agriculture of the
country, with the growing of wheat
as its main feature.
"People talk of a set-back in Canada. Nothing is going to stop the
production of wheat, which is Canada's wealth today, and will be its
wealth for all time. What the manufacturer of today must do, if he
wants to participate as he should In
Canada's prosperity, is to wake up,
to send out representatives to see
what is wanted for the Canadian market, and when, even though, perhaps,
at first on a small scale, branch
establishments can be started to
cater for the daily expanding markets of the Dominion,. These are the
methods adopted by other countries,
and the more one travels the more
aghast one is at our methods of sitting and waiting for trade to drop
into our laps."

SETTLES WITH INDIANS
VANCOUVER—T. G. Holt, executive agent of the C. N. P. Railway,
is credited in a despatch from Ottawa
with having scored a signal victory
over the Indians of Lytton. The new
grade for the railways runs through
a number of reserves along the Fraser Canyon below and above Lytton,
and during recent weeks a special
agent of the company has disbursed
$25,000 to the natives. Id reality
the land Is not worth one-hundredth
part of that amount, but the railway
had to run through it and so was
compelled to settle. Land and vegetable gardens, and even buryylng
grounds, had been purchased, and
the railway had secured title to seven
out of fifteen of the reserves they
needed. With eight remaining unsettled, the Indians found a new
value to the property. They demanded payment for the gold that might
still exist in the sand bars along the
Fraser River front. This opened a
new question, and the railway company promptly put it up at Ottawa.
The department told Mr. Holt that
the Indians did not own. the gold,
if there should be any remaining in
the gravel there, but that all this
belongs to the crown. No further
difficulty in settling with the Indians is anticipated.

MISSIONARY  BACK
NEW WESTMINSTER —Among
the passengers who landed from the
C. P. R. steamer Monteagle at Vancouver on ber last trip were Miss
E. G. Taylor, sister of J. D. Taylor,
M. P., who has been In the interior
of China for the past eight years lu
connection with the work of the Chi-
110 Inland Mission, it is noteworthy
that Miss Taylor left this coast in
101, immediately after the quelling
of the Boxer troubles, and by a coincidence almost before she left China on her return trip, trouble broke
out again, culminating iu what is
now known to be a nation-wide rebellion against the Mani-lni dynasty.
When Miss Taylor left her station In
lhe heart of the Klangsi province In
September, however the natives there
were as peaceable as they have been
during th entire time she lived there,
and even up till the time she sailed
from Shanghai, on October 17, little
was definitely known of the extent
of the trouble, although it was then
suspected that the rebellion was of
considerable import, and a number
of missionaries had delayed their
journey Into the Interior until information on the subject could be
gleaned.
INVESTORS  HERE
B. von Alvensleben, Count Voss
and Captajn Rorvivk are In the
northern part of the province Iook-
into Investments. They arrived here
on Wednesday and proceeded to Pacofi to Inspect the fishing company
there  in  which  they are Interested.
Their visit to Prince Rupert may
result in further investments being
made In this part of the province
by the same interests.
China's Magna Charter, in which
are incorporated all the constitutional demands of the army and the national assembly, has been formally
promulgated.
Concessions obtained in other
lands only after centuries of strife
have been wrung from the dragon
throne in ten days. Little more than
one week ago the throne was serene
In its absolutism. Forms of constitutionalism had been granted, but
its functions, even the veto power^
were absent.
The Chinese people, through the
legislative branch, obtain a larger
voice ip the government than any
other nation retaining the monarch-
ial form. Parliament will be supreme. The national assembly will
have full legislative power until a
parliament is formed. The assembly
will make the constitution, and the
throne must accept it.
Even the right, long exercised, to
control the succession to the throne,
has been taken from the imperial
clan, and will be made a part of the
constitution.
The power to regenerate the coun-
ery is now in the hands of the Chinese themselves. Whether they are
capable of utilizing it wisely is yet
to be determined.
The draft of the bases upon
whir lithe national assembly expects
to construct the new constitution of
China is as follows:
1. The emperor shall reign forever.
2. A person of the Ta Ching dynasty (the Great Pure dynasty, the
same being the name adopted by the
ruling family) shall be emperor inviolable.
3. The power of the emperor shall
be limited by the constitution.
4. The order of succession to the
throne shall be prescribed by the
constitution.
5. The constitution shall be drawn
up and adopted by the national assembly and promulgated by the emperor.
6. The power of amending the constitution shall belong to parliament.
7. The members of the upper
house shall be elected by the people
from among those particularly eligible.
f. Parliament shall elect and the
emperor shall appoint the premier,
who will recommend the other members of the cabinet, who also shall
be appointed by the emperor. The
imperial princes will be eligible for
the office of premier or members of
the cabinet or administrative heads
of the provinces.
9. If the premier when impeached
bv parliament does not dissolve par-
I anient he must resign. One cabinet
shall not be allowed to_ dissolve parliament more than once.
10. The emperor shall assume direct control of the army and navy,
but when this power 1b used in connection with Internal affairs the emperor must observe special conditions
to be decided by parliament.
11. Imperial decrees cannot be issued to replace the law except in
the event of urgent necessity, in
which case they may be issued in
accordance with special conditions.
12. International treaties shall
not be concluded without the consent of parliament. But a treaty for
the conclusion of peace or a declaration of war may be made by the
emperor If parliament It not sitting,
the approval of parliament to be obtained afterward.
18 Ordinances In connection with
the administration shall be settled by
acts of parliament.
14 In case the financial budget
falls to receive the approval of parliament the government may not cat
upon the budget of the previous year,
nor may Items of expenditure be provided for In the budget be appended
thereto. The government shall not
adopt extraordinary financial measures outBlde the budget.
15. Parliament shall fix the expenses of the imperial household and
any increase or decrease therein.
16. Regulations In connection with
the imperial family must not conflict
with  the constitution.
17. The two houses shall establish
the machinery for the administration of the court.
18. The emperor shall promulgate
the decisions of parliament.
19. The national assembly shall
act upon articles 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14,
15 and 18 until the opening of parliament.
Messrs. Bowser and Ross, in their
conferences with a number of Fed-
erkl ministers at Ottawa on subjects
in regard to which the interest of
the province and Dominion have come
into contast, seem to have covered a
lot of territory. At the preliminary
conference with the Federal premier,
Mr. McBride and the provincial ministers gave Mr. Borden a- list of the
subjects on which they desired discussions, and Messrs. Bowser and
Ross have since been doing detail
work. The proposed purchase of the
railway belt has been the principal
subject of discussion, the provincial
ministers urging that If it proves difficult to reach an early conclusion,
at all events the. question of water
powers should be settled by the removal of the present divided jurisdiction. .
Another matter which is being
pressed is lhe holding of an investigation into the Indian reserves. The
position of the provincial government
is that the acreage should be readjusted in accordance with the decrease in Indian population and the
excess of land transferred to the province.
Mr. Hazen has held up, pending
investigation and consultation with
the provincial authorities, a great
number of foreshore leases which
the outgoing government tried
to grant to political favorites. Henceforth no such leases will be granted
without consultation between the
two governments.
In this connection the application
of the city of Vancouver for a forty-
acre block of tidal flat in False Creek
was under discussion. An allied subject is the granting of gravel leases
in the bed of the Fraser. Here again
views of the provincial will be
sought.
Mr. Bowser is concerting common
action with the Dominion fisheries
department, especially with regard to
salmon. An effort 1b to be made to
stock the British Columbia 'akes with
white fish. The provincial authorities desire to transfer five or six million eggs from the hatchery at Sandwich, Ontario. The conference will
continue tomorrow.

FISHING  INDUSTRY
Interesting comparisons with the
fisheries of the fisheries of the British Isles are given in the monthly
bulletin of the department of marine
and fisheries just issued, covering
the month of September. Comparative figures for Newfoundland- and
Norway are also published. The total
value of the catch in Canada was
12,520,894, or $1,176,110 for the six
months ending September 30, this
representing all sea fish caught and
landed in a fresh or green state.
Of the salmon catch, amounting
to 144,879 cwts., practically all comes
from this province, and is valued at
|1,115,234. Composing this total the
northern district of British Columbia contributes 14,000 cwts., the
the southern 126,000, and the Vancouver district 4,500. Of course the
season is practically over, or else the
takings would have shown much
larger results. However, the bulletin does not give comparative figures with other years. This total of
British Columbia salmon includes
165,000 cases of canned fish and
small quantities of dry salted and
smoked varieties, about 8,000 cwts.
■^inly being used fresh, or frozen for
despatch to the east and the Orient.
Next to the salmon industry, that
of halibut ranks in the province in
importance, and of the 23,.44 cwts.
taken, valued at $124,791, throughout the Dominion, British Columbia
contributes about 13,000 cwts., of
which the value is about $60,000, the
whole of it being marketed. Nova
Scotia Is the only other province
which affords any practical contribution to the halibut fisheries of the
Dominion.
The third principal fishery of the
province, that of the herring, which-
is confined to Vancouver Island, accounts for 6.450 cwtB. of fish fresh
caught, and these are valued at
$8,000. This is but a small fragments of the herring catch in the
Dominion, which amounts to nearly
100,000 cwts., Nova Scotia supplying 50,600, and New Brunswick 30,-
000 cwts. of the balance.
Cod ranks fourth in importance
with 1,667 cwts. valued at $8,335,
so far as British Columbia is concerned, a mere fraction of the 515,-
000 cwts taken in the month throughout the Dominion, no less than 440,-
000 cwts. being taken in Nova Scotia, though the scarcity of bait and
the abundance of dogfish make a
considerable difference to some of
the chief fishing counties of the Atlantic province.
Seven devilfish are reported to
have been caught in the province,
and apparently are valued at $7 a
head, though the majority of fishermen would rather be without them,
and are the only ones taken in the
Dominion during the thirty days under review. The clam Industry
amounts to 447 barrelB, worth about
$2 a barrel, and other fish frequenting British Columbia waters noticed
in the report are flounders, smelts,
soles, oollchans and skate, while 137
cwts. of shell fish were captured. The
total value of the Britisii Columbia
fisheries for September was thus
$1,234,240, or 49 per cent of the
fisheries of the Dominion.

the sealers have put forward a claim
for about $550,000 for compensa-

SEALING DISPUTE
The sealing schooner Pescawha,
at Victoria, is being made ready for
sea and her owner, Captain J. W.
Peppett, says he will apply for a
licence to proceed on the spring
cruise. The sealing treaty entered
into between Canada, United States,
Russia and Japan under which pelagic sealing is to be stopped for a term
<if fifteen years comes into effect on
December 15 next if the ratification
is made by all the governments interested. It is understood Japan has
not yet ratified the treaty. No word
has been received by the collector of
ClistomB at Victoria, J. C. Newbury,
regarding the bringing of the treaty
into effect and some of the sealers
consider that they are permitted to
make the spring cruise if their boats
are cleared before December 15 next.
Application will be made by Captain
Peppett for a clearance as soon as
the Pescawha is ready to proceed.
The stoppage of pelagic sealing
takes away the occupation of forty-
On the bleakest shore of San Juan
Island, miles from the nearest habitation, without food or shelter, a boy
11 years old, a stowaway aboard the
steamer Alameda, was put ashore by
Captain John Johnson. The boy was
found in the steerage soon after the
vessel left Valdez and was put to
work by members of the crew. All
went well until Captain Johnson
learned that he was aboard and determined to put him ashore before
Seattle was reached.
Several of the passengers who had
learned of the boy's plight appealed
to the vessel's master, offering to
give double the amount of his passage if he were allowed to continue
the voyage, but Johnson was deaf
to their entreaties. In a lifeboat,
in charge of the third mate and two
sailors, the boy was landed on the
beach despite the protests of passengers and felt to walk without food
or money to the nearest ranch.
Soon after the return of the lifeboat and when the passengers learned that the little fellow was thinly-
clad, and did not even have a coat,
a meeting was called, and after Captain Johnson had been criticized,
resolutions protesting against the
treatment of the little fellow were
adopted. A wireless message was also
sent to officials of the Alaska Steamship Company advising them of the
action of their employee.
Quadra  Sails Again
The Quadra has left for the Queen
Charlotte Islands In connection
with thg lighthouse and buoy charging service. J. Fisher, the officer
who has the duty of recharging
buoys, and H. C. Killeen, the chief
engineer on the Coast, are on board.
KING'S HINTING
If King George does not bring
back from India next year a magnificent collection of hunting trophies,
It will not be the fault of the Maha-
rapah of Nepal, who Is making stupendous preparations for a untqle
llger hunt In which the newly
crowned emperor of India will take
part.
Some Idea of the grandeur of this
hunt may be had when one hears
that it will take 500 elephants to
carry the hunters. These beasts are
now being trained to stand the noise
of guns and the sudden onslaught
of maddened tigers. The hunt will
take place in the jungles of Nepal,
which are the private property of
the Maharajah and which, situated
on the southern foothills and marshy
taral of the Himalayas, are the
densest and most unexplored of any
in India.
They are literally swarming with
wild beasts, which are very arerely
disturbed, because foreign sportsmen are excluded, except when Invited by the Maharajah. The shooting done by the Maharajah himself
is not enough to make an impression on the game, which includes
wild elephants and r hlnoceroses,
with all kinds of tigers, bears, leopards,  wild  boars and  deer.

Strange Find in Parliament
Some excitement has been caused
among the officials responsible for
the well-being of the Palace of Westminster by the discovery of a rat in
the wooden roof of Westminster
Hall. The rodent is in mummified
form, and has long ceased to gnaw
or destroy. Its presence, however, in
a sanctuary which has been preserved
against the intrusion of rats for centuries has caused a notable commotion in that usuallp peaceful home of
refuge for harassed husbands and
suffraglng "M.P.s" What is puzzling the authorities is not the mummification of anything in Westminster but the presence of a "rat."

NORTHERN ANTHRACITE COLLIERIES UNITED
HAS   BEEN   INCORPORATED   WITH   THE   FOLLOWING   OFFICERS:
D. R. YOUNG HAS CONTRACTED FOR THE PURCHASE OF
TWO BLOCKS OF SHARES OF
100,000 SHARES EACH, AND
THEY ARE BEING SOLD BY
A. E. KEALEY, FISCAL
AGENT, FOR THE PUR-
CHASER.

$85.00 Profit
IN SIX MONTHS ON AN INVESTMENT OF $15.00 IS
GOOD ENOUGH FOR ANYONE
.{-{,000 SHARES HAVE BEEN
ALREADY SUBSCRIBED FOR
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 3.600 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 sold 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
1b 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 boring and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe side, a further
block of 100,000 shareB 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 ch&nces
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 Wilson-Robinson coal fields, three miles
north 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 the 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 chance 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 golnng 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.
The solicitors for all concerned are

UNIVERSITY  PLANS
Minister of Education Gives Some De
tails as to Proposition.
He Will Start Lectures on Scheduled
Time Even if It  Is Necessary
to Use TontB
That It is the ambition of the department to make the University of
British Columbia, when It is completely established, second to no
other institution of learning on the
North American continent, both with
regard to the academic facilities and
and the character of the buildings,
was the noteworthy statement made
by Hon. Dr. Young, minister of education, at the convention of school
trustees   in   Vancouver.
"The question in connection with
the university that has been causing me the greatest amount of anxiety," remarked Dr. Young, "is that
of suitable buildings. We are endeavoring to build up in this new
province an educational system that
shall be second to none, and we wish
the buildings of our chief seat of
learning to typify this spirit of Ihe
best for British Columbia.
"I have promised that classes will
open in the summer of 1913, and I
shall keep my word if they are opened In tents," continued the minister.
"The teachers will be here and they
can teach in tents as well as they
can in marble halls."
"But we are going to have marble
halls, too," declared the speaker. "I
purpose to estaullsh buildings here
that will be a credit to North America. The department wishes to encourage the development of the western spirit and western enterprise. I
have three men from the east now
who are going to give me their as-
slstanr-e In a broa scheme for the
university buildings. The first faculty win be a school of architecture,
and I intend to found a fellowship
for British Columbia. The students
from this faculty will have an opportunity of drawing up plans for the
additional buildings that are required after the first necessary
buildings are erected."
"What we are trying to do here,
along educational lines, is a standard for other to copy," continued
the minister of education.
Dr, Young commented upon the
purchase of 2,000,000 acres of land
ir British Columbia for school purposes and said that this had so in-
ciessed in value that Premier McBride had promised him $1,000,000
foi this year'B work on the university alone. And this expenditure
would not impair the endowment.
Hon. Dr. Young made another pronouncement. This was that the government intended to bring not only
public but also private schools under
its purview, it was not suggested
that there would be any Interference
with private school teaching, hut It
was Intimated that they would have
to measure up to high academic
standards,
Dr. Young assured the association
that any suggestions that were made
during the convention would probably be adopted by the government,
with certain modifications that might
be adjudged necessary.
"The department has the same Interest in building up the educational
system as has the association of
school trustees," concluded the minister.
A number of resolutions were
passed at the day's sessions. One of
the most Important was that brought
forwnrd by Magistrate George Jay of
Victoria.    This wns as follows:
"That the provincial government
be asked to Introduce at the next
sesBlon of the legislature an amendment to the Liquor Act to the effect
that no licence shall be granted or
renewed for the sale of liquor as interpreted by the said act upon any
premises adjacent to or opposite any
public school  building or grounds."

"She claims she has a perfect

"What Is her alibi?"
"She says that she can prove that
at the time the crilne was committed
her little girl was brushing her hair."
"That proves an alibi for her hair,
but how about herself?"

IN THE
European  Countries Seek  Privileges
From tlie United States in Matter
of Pulp and Paper
Governments of Europe are claiming the treaty right of the free admission into the United States of
wood pulp and print and other paper. Norway and Sweden, and it is
understood, Germany, have formally
invoked the most favored nation
of their respective commercial
treaties with this country by reason
of the fact that wood pulp and its
products are now coming across the
border from Canada into the United
Slates free of import ehanrges.
The secretary of state, the treasury department, and the attorney
general are considering She matter,
which soon will be laid before the
president, if the point involved is
an interpretation of treaty rights the
problem will not he referred to Congress, but will be solved by the executive, although It is admitted that
the importers may throw the question Into the courts if the president's
decision is adverse.
Canada enjoys this tariff advantage under the reciprocity agreement.
This section was not dependent upon
concurrent action by Canada.
Section provides that wood pulp
cut from lands on the products of
which there were no restrictions, and
paper manufactured from such wood
pulp should be admitted into the
United States free.
During the last few weeks a number of importers of paper have claimed free entry at the customs houses
on the Atlantic Coast.

LOSING POPULAR OFFICER
Ensign  Johnstone  of  the  Salvation
Army Is Leaving for
Moosejaw
On Sunday morning Prince Rupert
loses in Ensgn Johnston of the Salvation Army a very popular citizen.
On Wednesday evening a farewell
was taken of the popular officer,
Mrs. Johnstone and their little boy
at the citadel. The reason for the
removal of the ensign now is that he
finds that it is advisable for him to
leave the coast and seek the bracing
air of the plains in the interest of
his health.
He will proceed to Vancouver from
here, where he will take part in the
conference that is to be held next
Thursday with Commissioner Rees,
the officer in charge of the Salvation
Army work in Canada and Newfoundland. Colonel Mapp and Colonel
Pugmlce. All the officers in the
province will meet with the staff
officers on that occasion.
A General change of officers is
taking place now. Major Morris, in
charge of the M. 0. work, goes east
after four years on the coast. He
is being succeeded by Major Green,
formerly of Hamilton.
Locally, the Salvation Army Is to
lave Captain Jackson as a successor
o Ensign Johnstone. The new officer conies from Nanaimo, accompanied by Mrs. Jackson and their
two daughters, who are clever musicians. They were be here In about
two weeks' time.

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that tbey 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's
important to every one  using or buying
a range.

JAPANESE FISHERMEN
ARE NOT DESIRED
Skeena District Conservatives Take Action Looking to
the Taking of Industry out of Their Hands—
Officers Elected for the Year at
Meeting Held in This City
Saturday Evening.
(From Tuesday's Daily)
The Skeena District Conservative
Association meet in the Stephens
Block, Third Avenue, on Saturday
evening, with Dr. Quinlan in the
chair. While many of the outside
organizations were not represented
by delegates in person, yet most of
them had arranged for proxies
through the secretary, H. Clarke. The
meeting was called at this time particularly to name delegates to the
Provincial Association, which meets
this week in New Westminster, and
also to select officers for the year.
In the choice of officers, the following executive was appointed for
the ensuing year: President, Dr.
Jamieson, Ocean Falls; first vice
president, J. G. Scott, Prince Rupert; second vice president, W. R.
Smith, Stewart; secretary-treasurer,
M. M. Stephens, Prince Rupert; additional members of the executive, E.
H. Hicks-Beach of Hazelton, Dr.
Traynor of Kitselas, Charles Tucker
of Bella Coola, Charles Harrison of
Masset, J. R. Johnson of Port Essington, E. W. Richards of Port
Simpson, George Tite of Prince Rupert, A. J. Gordon of Skidegate and
Harry Clarke  of  Prince Rupert
Delegates to the provincial convention were appointed to the full
number of ten, to'which the district
is entitled. These were George D.
Tite, J. E. Merryfield, J. A. Kirkpatrick and M. M. Stephens, representing Prince Rupert; E. H. Hicks-
Beach and Robert deB. Hovell of
Hazelton, who have been selected by
their own associations; J. R. Johnson, representing the local Skeena;
C. Wilson, representing Queen Charlotte Islands, elected by the association in Masset; F. E. Cullin, representing Stewart should that association not send a delegate, and 0. H.
Nelson, representing Bella Coola district should that association not elect
a delegate. Only about half of the
representatives will be able to attend but they are carrying .the
proxies of tne others so that the district will be fully represented.
A number of communications were
disposed of, including a request from
Port Simpson Association asking
for further aids to navigation and
other matters affecting the local conditions there. The district association recommended that the department of marine and fisheries take
steps at once to investigate the needs
along  the lines indicated.
The needs of the fishing industry
and the objectionable features met
with in the monopolizing of the industry by Japanese was introduced
by a resolution proposed by Mr. For-
sythe, representing Port Essington
Association. The resolution deplored
the fact that the government at Ottawa had allowed the ■ Japanese to
monopolize the fishing industry, and
advocated that immediate steps be
ta..en  to overcome tnis.
At the instance of William Man-
son, M. P. P., It was suggested that
as a means of rectifying the situation
which has been created without
working too great a hardship upon
the cannery owners by cutting off
the available supply of 'abor before
white fishermen were to be got, regulations might be put into effect at
once whereby the number of licences
to be issued to Japanese might be
materially reduced each year until
at the expiration of about three
years they would all be wiped out.
A recommendation along these
lines will be made to Hon. R. L. Borden and H. S. Clements, M. P. The
delegates to the provincial convention
were also instructed to do what they
could along the lines suggested.
The wish of the meeting was that
the district association should be
i..oroughly reorganized, and be in a
position at all times to render any
assistance to the various local associations throughout the district. At
the same time the district association
will in no wise usurp any powers of
the different local bodies, but will
act as a central body to assist in
every way In the fullest organization
of the party throughout the whole
district.

Faulds—Will Ship Fuel in
Few Weeks
(From Tuesday's Daily)
Alex. Faulds, M. E. of Vancouver
i one of the best known mining engi-
!* neers on the coast, was In the city
yesterday, having returned from the
Queen Charlotte Islands, where he
has been busy for a few days past
giving instructions as to how the
British Pacific mines shall be developed. He 1b well satisfied with the
way the work is going, having only
one complaint, and that waa that it
was not going fast enough to suit
him. Accordingly, in a method very
familiar to Mr. Faulds, he at once
put a stronger force at work and
expects to see coal shipping In less
than a month. At first the shipment will not be large. The output
will not exceed 100 tons a day for a
while, but there will be that quantity available for sale on the outside.
These mines, to which allusion has
been made at different times in these
columns, are under the general direction of W. G. MeMorris, with Mr.
Faulds as consulting engineer In
charge of the general development
work.
About twenty-five men are now
employed on tlie road and from the
mine to the water and in the two
shifts that are sinking. Within ten
days, perhaps, the cotl should be
encountered and then the working
of laying out the mine will not occupy a long time.
The coal will be hauled by teams
over the trail  to  the  water  in  the

There Will Be Xo Ground for
Complaint  This  Winter
Captain E. H. Fletcher, post office
Inspector, after a tour up the Skeena to Investigate the canuitions relative to the winter mail, says that he
anticipates that there will be an excellent service this year. Beirnes &
Mulvaney are putting on a regular
passenger, freight and mail stage
stage line from the end of steel to
Hazelton.
By means of this there will be two
malls a week taken into Hazelton,

COMMAND CHANGES
Captain Hackett Leaves the D.G.S. Qnadra
-Captain Walbran is Again on
the Bridge
The Appointment Is Only Temporary
Pending the Naming of a
Permanent  Head
(From Tuesday's Daily)
Yesterday at noon tne D. G. S.
Quadra, which for nine years has
been under the command of Captain
Hackett, passed 'oftt of his control,
he having insisted upon the acceptance of his resignation from the post.
A permanent appointment to succeed
him has not so far as know been
made. The steamer puts out this
morning under a temporary command.
When Captain Hackett had his
resignation accepted there was a good
deal of speculation as to who would
be his successor. It was learned
that he was to arrive by the Princess May so that many were on the
qui vive to see who would arrive. If
Captain Hackett himself were to admit his exact feelings, it is more than
probable he would himself have plead
guilty to feeling a little curious
about who was to come off the May.
To the astonishment of all, when
the C. P. R. steamer's gangplank was
put out Captain John T. Walbran
came asljore to resume command of
a vessel of which he had charge for
many years after she was built. Captains Walbran and Hackett are old
personal friends and the meeting of
the two was mutually agreeable.
Captain Hackett's resignation from
the command of the Quadra is taken
as a result of a disagreement with
the new superintendent of marine
and Fisheries on the coast. This is
Captain George Robertson, formerly
master of the Prince George, who
was appointed to the superintend-
eney for the coast some months ago.
Captain Hackett left port at Victoria several days ago with instructions to proceed to various points
along the way between Victoria and
the Langara light on Graham Island.
Discretionary power was given him
to a certain extent In shaping his
course. It is understood that Superintendent Robertson questioned the
judgment of Captain Hackett relative to part of the programme he
carried out and the commander of
the Quadra felt that he had not been
treated with proper courtesy by his
superior. He accordingly took the
course of wiring his resignation to
Ottawa from here and after some
delay this was accepted.
Captain Hackett has no fault to
find with the department in general,
nor does he attribute to the Conservative party which has just come into
power any part in the disagreements
which have arisen. The matter is
one of difference between himself
and the superintendent alone.
On Friday Captain Hackett will
leave for his home in Victoria. He
will quit the sea, having reached an
age when he thinks he can well retire
from active life after spending a long
term in a seafaring career. ,
Captain Walbran, who has now
taken command of the Quadra, was
her first commander. Nine years
ago he retired from the post, which
was given to Captain Hackett, who
has remained in the post until now.
Captain Walbran continued to be
connected with the department, serving In the offices at Victoria. He
has been commissioned to take the
Quadra until n permanent captain
is named.
Captain Walbran has made a specialty of studying hydrographic
work and while commander of the
Quadra gave no little attention to
the charting of uncharter rocks. He
also Is an authority upon the names
of places on the coast and the history of their derivation. In this
connection, he had a volume published after many years of labor, giving
the derivation of the different geographical names on the cost.
Yesterday afternoon Captain
Hackett took farewell of his crew,
who all have a very warm regard for
him. He addressed them in the presence of Captain Walbran, to whom
he turned over the command In the
warmest  manner.

PUBLIC   ASSURED
Council Goes  on  Record as Being in
Favor of Nothing Unsatisfactory at Sewer End.
The Matter Was Fully Explained al
the Council Meeting Last
Evening
(From Tuesday's Daily)
The city counci. met last night,
with all the members present except
Alderman Kerr.
A letter was read from the Mack
Realty Company offering to reserve
insurance  on  workmen.
The letter was referred to the
boardjof works.
A letter was read from C. D.. Rand
asking for patronage in the way of
insurance.
This was referred to .the finance
committee.
Mr. Lucas of the engineering staff
asked a month's leave of absence.
They city engineer recommend that
this request be granted as Mr. Lucas
had not had a holiday since he entered upon his duties.
On motion of Alderman Clayton it
was agreed to grant the leave for a
month.
Application was made by Christiansen & Brandt asking for certain
alterations in the sidewalk in front
of the Royal Hotel.
This was referred to the board of
works for report.
Mr. Budd wrote relative to information relative to establishing a
cement factory if the material could
be obtained here.
Hays  Creek   Sewer
A petition signed by seventy-six
was presented asking that the bylaw
for the Hays Creek sewer should be
amended by extending the main to
afford an outlet beyond the point
determined upon.
Alderman Morrissey moved that
the petition he granted. .
Alderman Hilditch moved that the
petition should be referred to the
board of works.
Alderman Newton did not feel
competent to offer an opinion last
week, but he felt that Alderman
Morrissey's views should have been
met. He felt sure that if the bylaw
was to be passed next Saturday that
action should be taken.
Medical Report
His Worship said the matter had
not been lost sight of since last
week. He had asked the medical
health officer to report upon it. He
suggested that that report be read.
The report was read. Dr. Reddie
reported that while the condtions
were not ideal, yet he saw no reason
to fear anything from a sanitary
standpoint. He did not agree with
the view that the waters near the
mouth of the creek would become
a cesspool. Sewage soon became innocuous when exposed to the air. It
had been shown that sewage passing in any open way through « city,
while objectionable, was not necessarily unsanitary. He felt that the
city engineer's report safeguarded
the situation, as an extension of the
sewer could be made.
Alderman Morrissey felt like taking issue with the medical health
officer. He had ordered the clearing of the G. T. P. reserve, which
he felt was not as dangerous as this
was. He felt that it was nonsense
to think that this would not create
a nuisance. He wanted lo see the
bylaw carried but he would not support it if the bylaw was not amended
to provide for the extension of the
sewer. He would fight it to the hitter end.
Alderman     Douglas     thought     It
would   be  foolish   to  put   the  bylaw j
before   the   people   unless    It    were |
amended as suggested.
Alderman Newton objected to citizens having deposits made "to stifle
out their very nostrils."
Situation  Ex-plained
Alderman Hilditch said he had Introduced the bylaw, and even last
year had endeavored to have tbe sewer provided. It was one of the most
important things required in the city
to have sewerage. It will be tVelve
months before the sewer is completed. Before that time the G. T. P.
will probably have decided upon its
plans for the mouth of Hays Creek.
It will then he possible to decide
where the pipe Is to be carried to.
The sewer will not lie used very ex-
lenslvely for some time and would
not create a nuisance. It was Impossible to provide for a permanent
pipe   to  the   permanent   outlet   be-
PALATIAL HOTEL
TO START AT ONCE
G. T. P. Superintendent is now in the City in Connection With the Immense Hostelry to be Erected
Here-Work is to Begin at Once Says
Nr. Bergman-Will use Canadian
Material Throughout.
F. W. Bergman, manager of the
Chateau Laurier at Ottawa, the palatial hotel which the G. T. P. has
erected there, reached Prince Rupert
yesterday by the Princess May. He
at once plunged into the work he has*
in hand, namely, the investigation of
the local situation as far as a hotel
is concerned. In company with Mr.
Sweet, manager of the Prince Rupert
Inn, he made a tour of the city to
acquaint himself with conditions and
with the general lay of the place,
so as to be able to intelligently decide upon the points which he has
to report upon before the plans are
finally adopted. He is well pleased
with Prince Rupert and notes that
there are many picturesque hotel
sites available. He will be busy until Friday studying the local conditions, when he will go into the whole
question with F. M. Rattenhury of
Victoria, the architect.
The main details of the hotel have
already been described in these columns, and Mr. Bergman more than
bears out the most sanguine expectations as to its character. The hotel
will have 250 rooms at the start. It
will be so planned that another 200
rooms can be added at a later date,
and Mr. Bergan remarked that it was
as cheap to design a house of 250
as 200 rooms. The G. T. P. has such
absolute confidence in the future of
its northern terminal that the company will spare not expense. It will
prove none too large when the transcontinental is through.
Mr. Bergman says lhat the company intends to use Canadian materials in the construction of the
hotels, and all the furnishings are to
be purchased In the country, even the
kitchen utensils. The development
of Canadian industries in the past
two or three years had made this possible, through when he first left the
C. P. R. to enter the G. T. P. service
he doubted the feasibility of such a
proposal.
Mr. Bergman, speaking of the hotel
policy of the company, said it was
the intention to erect eight hotels, of
which the Chateau Laurier at Ottawa
was well advanced. Excavations
were in progress at Winnipeg for the
Fort Garry Hotel, and the hotels at
Edmonton, Prince Rupert and Victoria were three more under consideration. Another would be located
in the Sulphur Spring district in the
Rockies through which the line
passed, and would rival Banff, while
the other two would be at divisional
points of the line between Winnipeg
and Edmonton, and Edmonton and
Prince Rupert, the sites of which
had not yet been located. All the
hotels would be built in the French
Chateau style, and speaking of the
Winnipeg site, he said its proximity
to the old fort had determined the
directors to call it "Fort Garry," the
remains of which are in a park almost adjoining, and close to the big
Union Depot. The hotel in Victoria
will not be as large, but on the same
scale as Prince Rupert.
Wire Trouble
Trouble on the C. P. K. wires beyond Ashcroft Interfered with the
service here last night and accounts
for the absence of telegraphic news
in these  columns  this morning.

Tenders Opened
Tenders for water pipe were
opened at the council last evening.
In some cases tenders were received

roe, Seventh Avenue, of ;r daughter
The Kitselas tunnel has been cut
through and it is estimated that
In about ten days' time it will be
ready for laying steel. Among the
arrivals in the city on Sunday were
some passengers who had made their
way through the tunnel, which had
on Saturday been broken through.
They express the opinion that
within about ten days the laying of
steel can commence, which, with the
good weather conditions up the river, should permit construction to the
Skeena Crossing in nlroiii two
months.
General Superintendent Mehan
has a reputation in the matter of
track laying anil may he expected to
make the fastest time possible in
completing the line as early as it
can be done. The finishing of it
will enable the getting In of vast
supplies by early spring so that no

(Continued  From  Page One)
cause it was impossible to get a
right-of-way from the G. T. P. There
was no use trying to pass a bylaw
for $150,000, which might be possible. They could pass a bylaw for
$75,000.
Alderman Clayton had not changed
his opinion from the week before,
bue he felt that If the people wished
the change, It would be necessary to
make the alderation. If the people
wanted this temporary sewer, 1(
should be granted, even if it was not
deemed by the council absolutely
necessary.
His Worship explained that according to the engineer's report the sewer was to be constructed to manhole
No. 8. By the time this pipeline was
finished and in use the G. T. P. might
be In a position to indicate its plans
and the permanent outlet could be
provided for. The engineer reported
that a temporary outlet could be constructed. If the city council decided,
however, that it was necessary to
make it compulsory that this temporary outlet should be constructed,
the council could take such action.
He felt that next year's council
might construct the permanent outlet on the temporary one.
Assurance  Given
Alderman Clayton moved that the
petitioners be assured that before the
sewer would be used, a temporary or
permanent outlet should be provided.
A difficulty was pointed out, that
it was impossible to amend the bylaw now as that would necessitate re-
advertising.
Alderman Clayton then moved that
in carrying out the bylaw now before the people the city engineer be
Instructed to construct a temporary
outlet before the sewer is used.
Alderman Hilditch withdrew his
amendment to refer the matter to
the board  of  works.
Alderman Morrisey objected to it.
The amendment carried on the
followoing vote: Mayor Manson, Aldermen Clayton, Hilditch and Kirkpatrick; nays, Aldermen Morrisey,
Newton and Douglas.
Some discussion followed, in which
Alderman Newton expressed the
opinion that the petitioners' wishes
were not being met.
Motion Reconsidered
Alderman Hllditch said he would
move for the reconsideration of the
matter; in so doing he wanted it
understood that those who were opposed to this former action should
take the onus for any move.
The motion for reconsideration
carried, when Alderman Morrissey
and Alderman Newton again moved
to grant the request of the petitioners.
It was pointed out that to carry
this would upset the bylaw.
Alderman Clayton moved that the
bylaw be given the six months'
hoist. He felt this was the only
course to pursue.
His Worship moved this out of
order, as the bylaw was not before
the  council.
The amendment of Alderman Clayton, that in carrying out the bylaw
now before the people the city engineer be Instructed to construct a
temporary outlet before the sewer
is used, was carried, only Alderman
Morrissey and Alderman Newton voting nay.
It was decided to have the report
of the city engineer on the matter
of the sewer be published in all the
local   papers.I

JAPANESK FISHERMEN
The Skeena District Conservative
Association has taken a stand
against the'employment of Japanese
in the fishing Industry on the coast
to the exclusion of white men. The
Japanese have succeeded In practically monopolizing the taking of
fish, thus shutting out the while
fishermen from the industry.
That the centres to which the fisheries are tributary are losers by the
system that gives the Japs the monopoly goes without argument.
Prince Rupert, which must become
the base of supply for the Skeena
River and ether northern fishing districts, has much to gain by white
men being employed rather than Orientals. Anything that can be done
to break down the system of employing these alien raceB of the Mongolian type will be welcome to the
citizens of Prince Rupert.

HYDHO-ELECTHIC
City Council Has Report From R. H.
Thompson, Who Approves of
Heavy Timber Standing
R. II. Thomson, the consulting engineer for the city hydro-electric system, submitted a lengthy report to
the rouncilst last evening, which was
considered at some length and then
left  over   until  Thursday,    when   a
meeting of the council will be held.
He recommends that it is unnecessary
to cut tbe timber from the -shores
of the lake, contending that the water would not be injured by leaving
the trees standing.
The city engineer expects to have
plans ready for the reservoir on
Acropolis Hill by Thursday.
Plans will be prepared for trenching for the pipe also.

33,000   SHARES   HAVE   BEEN
ALREADY   SUBSCRIBED   FOR
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 3.500 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, nonassessable and fully paid
up, are to be sold at 15c, 5c with
application, 5c in 30 days' and 6c 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
Beams 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 boring and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe side, a 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 Wilson-Robinson coal fields, three miles
north 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 the 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 chance 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 Cowgltz, as its horizon is known.
I should, therefore, recommend you
to put down a borebole 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.
