INVASION OF FRUIT imperial trade
AREAS NEAR THE CITY
Valleys Along the Line of the G.T.P. Will Fill Up Rapidly
—Many are Already Making Their Way in—
Rich Returns for Those who Venture.
It has become a settled fact that
the valleys tributary to the G. T. P.
will be the next great fruit area. In
the southern parts of the province
an immense demand has been created for fruit lands that can offer
nothing like the inducements to the
fruit grower that these northern
areas possess. In the south the districts most sought are those where
an irrigation scheme has to be carried into effect with all the expense
whfch that involved. Along the
route of the G. T. P. such a treatment is not essential and consequently the Individual fruitgrower
has an opportunty to work independently of all others.
During the past few years there
has been a very decided influx of
settlers into these valleys. The settlements are reported in fact to be
far greater than most of people Imagine. That there has been quite a
move upon the land is shown by the
fact t.iat a request has been made
for a regular mail service to a point
thirty-five miles up Lie Kltsumka-
lum valley where a body of settlers
wish to have regular postal service.
The construction of the G. T. P
has had Its effect in inducing this
settlement. Work Is afforded the
men who thus take up land. They
are able to get employment a part
of the year with the company or
are able to earn a no inconsiderable
amount by taking out ties for sale to
the G. T. P., the sale serving a double purpose in clearing the land and
in earning ready money.
The cost of clearing the land ot
tlhe stumps has been put at aliout
$75 to $100 an acre on an average.
Immediately it is cleared It is ready
for the planting of fruits. The fact
that small fruits thrive so well In
this climate is of great advantage to
the homeseeker. Instances are on
record where from a quarter of an
acre of land over $4o0 has been
made out of strawberries. The market is an unlimited one, divided
among the railway camps, the mining camps and the city of Prince Ru
pert. But independent of these
there would be a market in the south
for the fruit, owing to the fact that
the strawberries ripen in this latitude
several weeks later than they do in
the south, thus coming on the market when the fruit of the southern
districts of the province have passed,
Under these conditions there are
rich returns for the settlers who devote their attention to the fruit industry. The different valleys contiguous to the railway line are exten-
tive enough according to the best reverts to support a very large population. At Kitsumkaltim, for instance,
which is but a continuation of the
valley from Kitimaat, and which extends Into the Naas country, there
is an area which has been tested with
good results.
The small fruit end of the business is but a small part of the industry. It will always be auxiliary io
the growing of apples, etc., and during the early years of settlement may
be made the main source of revenue
while the trees are coming into bearing.
That the fruit growing industry is
a most remunerative one, has long
since, been proved. In the northwest
parts of the continent the most prosperous settlements are those where
fruit growing is the staple industry.
At Nortli Yakima, Wash., west of
Spokane, 6S9 cars of fruit were
shipped in 1010. This does not Include the express shipments, which
would make SO cars more. There are
also about 125 cars of apples held in
storage. Figuring the average car
at 640 boxes, and the boxes at $1.50
each, the returns on apples alone in
that section were $950,000.
North Yakima was not known as
a fruit district a few years ago. It
has come forward within a very few
years along these lines.
What is true of North Yakima
may be easily duplicated in the case
of several extensive valleys In the
Skeena district and through Prince
Rupert will flow the greater part of
the business, adding to the Importance of this port.

with Gratifying Results
The police commissioners held
their regular monthly meeting on
Wednesday In the city hall, there being present M, M. Stephens, who
acted as chairman in the absence of
the mayor, and Aid. Kirkpatrick.
A report from the chief of police
stated that gambling had beern

the reputation along that line were
closed and the proprietors out of tbe
city. A war had been waged on
"blind pigs" and nbout thirty had
been closed up. A number of charges
of selling liquor without a license
had been brought up. Six of the
nine charged had left the city rather
than face the consequences. In the
matter of keepers of cribs, there had
been decided action taken and these
had been closed up.
The resolution of the Prince Rupert Moral and Social Reform league
commending the work done, was presented at the meeting.
Chief McCarvell asked leave of
absence for a few weeks, stating that
he would defer leaving until Sergt.

RECIPROCITY WITH
THE UNITED STATES
THE PRICE OF COAL IS
TO BE INVESTIGATED
Resolution Passes Legislature at Victoria Calling for a
Full Enquiry by Commission Into the Causes for
the High Rates Charged for Fuel.
(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, Feb. 3.—Consideration of the price of coal to the British Columbia consumer and appropriate measures to be adopted in
investigating the causes operating lo
produce the present coal prices, furnished the text of a debate in the
legislature yesterday. The result
was the adoption of a resolution urging the provincial government to appoint a royal commission to make inquiry into coal mining and marketing generally.
In permitting the resolution to
pass, Premier McBride pointed out
that constitutionally the responsibility in this matter unquestionably
rested with the Dominion government.
Dr. McGuire M. P. P., of Vancouver, having in two previous sessions
introduced resolutions in which appeals were made in vain to the Federal government to take the matter
up, yesterday appealed to the provin-
ial government to institute an inquiry, by royal commission. His res.
olutiori is as follows:
"Whereas It would appear that the
cost of coal to the consumer In the
Province of British Columbia is out
of all proportion to the cost of production; and whereas, owing to the
abundance of the coal deposits in
this province and the proximity of
the sources of supply to the market,
the cost of coal to the consumer in
British Columbia should be much
less than at present is the case; and
whereas  the excessive  price  of  coal
in British Columbia has tbe effect of
retarding and preventing the establishment in this province of industries depending upon a fuel supply;
and whereas much of the product of
the coal mines of this province is
being exported to foreign markets
and sold at a price that enables It to
compete with coal from other countries in such foreign markets and
whereas a belief exists that there is
an understanding between the persons or corporations controlling or
owning such coal mines to maintain
the high prices now being charged
to consumers In  this province:
"Therefore, be it resolved, that an
humble address be presented to His
Honor the Lieutenant-Governor by
this House, praying him to consider
the advisability of appointing a Royal Commission to inquire into the
following questions:
"1. Whether or not a combine or
understanding exists among the coal
producers, or any of them, of this
province to establish and maintain
prices charged  for coal?
"2. Whether or not coal is being
sold by producers, or any of them,
for consumption outside British Columbia for a less price than that sold
for consumption in the province?
"3. Whether or not the prices
charged by the producers, or any
of them, for coal consumed in British Columbia is excessive?
"4. Whether or not the prices
charged by (he producers, or any of
them, of coal in British Columbia
bears a reasonable proportion to the
cost of production?

The reciprocity agreement between Canada and the Jnlted States,

The following Is an outline of the

"Reciprocity on leading food products such as wheat and other grains,
Dairy products; fresh fruits and vegetables; fish of all kinds; eggs and

Dr. A. A .Mclntyre, writing to a
friend in the city from San Diego,
shows unmistakeable signs that he is
homesick for this place. He Is more
and more impressed with the great
future of this city, the more he sees
of the south. The climate of this
place also appeals to him and It is
to be expected that he will soon be
seen again on these streets.
In the course of his letter he says:
"Allow me to tell you that you
have to travel a good many hundred
miles south before you get a better climate than Prince Rupert.
From there to San Francisco there
is very little difference as fur as
climate is concerned. It was raining some when we left home, but It
was literally pouring In Vancouver
and Seattle and in Portland It came
down in torrents. In southern Oregon and northern California we encountered a genuine snow storm, and
in San Francisco we bad four days

PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN
Board   of  Trade  Make  Move in That
Direction to Meet
Demands
Secretary   Reports   That  There   Are
Increasing Demands Upon Him
For  Information
(Continued on Page Eight)
The Board of Trade at Its last
meeting on Tuesday evening decided
to take steps towards advertising the
city in a systematic way. It was suggested that a pamph'et be prepared
on tbe subject, giving Information
such as is sought for.
This action arose out of the announcement by M. M. Stephens, the
secretary of the board, that he was
constantly receiving inquiries. The
replying to these had grown to a
magnitude that made it, prohibitive
to reply individually to the letters.
It. was decided to appoint an advertising committee to go into this
matter. The committee consists of
W. P. Lynch, W. M. Law, J. G.
Scott, R. A. White and G. W. Mo-
Kelson.
Tbe subject of better postal facilities was deali with. The criticism
of existing affairs was not directed
towards the postmaster,  bul     It   was
fell thai ihe department should provide some more modern facilities
than now exist. A committee consisting of .1. (I. Scott, It. A. White,
i.. F. Brandt and M, M. Stephens
was appointed to go into the matter
with the postmaster.
A. E. McMaster suggested that a
case of grains, etc., showing the productiveness of the Interior should be
placed on the wharf so that all who
arrive could see It at once. He
thought this would assist materially
in advertising this part of the province.
This met with favor and will prob-
abl bo put into effect later on.
A finance committee was appointed as follows: A. E. McMaster, J. II. Thomson and H. P. Wilson.
A bylaw committee was also
named as follows: F. Stork, W. P.

ONTARIO   TIMBER
Some   Problems   Facing   the   Province
Relative to Old Licenses.
Issued.
Holders Wish lo Retain Their nights
to    These,    Taking    Advantages of New Growth
One of the biggest problems facing
the Province of Ontario today is the
question of how the Crown may reserve or acquire, in whole or in part
timber territory which passed under
license many years ago, and is sti
under license, though the timber
which was bought when the cutting
rights were disposed of has long
since been marketed.
Sales in recent years are subject to
a time limit, but sales of 2a, 30, 40
or 50 years ago contained no such
provision, and present holders of
these limits—many of which are cut
out and fit only for reforestry—
claim that as long as they pay the
ground rent, a purely nominal
charge of $5 per mile per year, they
they should be permitted to hold
these old limits in take and benefit
of regrowth This notwithstanding
the fact that he land on which this
timber grows belongs to the Province
and Is in the Crown and the added
fact that the timber originally sold
has in most cases long since been cut
away.
Province to Share Profits
The contention of the Crown is
that legally these licenses could be
terminated at the end of any license
year, in equity, however, this would
scarcely be a proper action, as some
of these licenses have changed hands
repeatedly and are now held by parties who purchased in good faith,
possibly in recent years, and whose
licenses, as a matter of fact, are
usually held by banks as security for
advances for operating expenses.
Confiscation of these old licenses,
therefore, would, it is pretty generally admitted, be a hardship, and the
government win, it is felt, be obliged
to consider some modified action
which will result in securing to the
Province an interest in these old limits, and at the same time not work a
hardship on limit holders or unduly
disturb established  mercantile  relations.
Some time ago a large and representative deputation from the Canadian Lumbermen's association waited upon the minister of lands, forests
and mines. It was obvious that they
were present upon business in connection with their own interests, but
at the conclusion of the interview
they had nothing to say nor would
Hon. Mr. Cochrane be interviewed.
The information is that the lumbermen fell back upon their old contention of perpetual rights, whereat the minister quietly suggested the
possibility of being obliged to raise
the ground rent to about $200 a mile
and the imposing of a size limit of
say fifteen inches, below which it
would be illegal to cut. At the same
time he told his hearers, some of
whom were personal and political
friends, just what he thought of
"stove-pipe" lumbering, and said
that the average drive today was
painful to look upon.
Half Interest for People
On these old licenses the dues average about one dollar per thousand..
and as a feeler one of the lumbermen Is said to have suggested"' that
at the end of thirty years it might
not be out of the way to allow the
government the munificent sum of
three dollars instead of one dollar.
This suggestion was altogether too
modest for the minister, who intimated that the lumbermen would
have to think of the Province as well
as of themselves and that before
very long Then one of the visitors
proosed tentatively that the Province
might be alowed a twenty-five per
cent interest at the end of thirty
years if settlement were kept out absolutely and the Province met half
the cost of protection against fire.
Then It Is asserted that Hon. Mr.
Cochrane made the significant statement that, as the Province owned tha
land, and the purchasers of the limits never bought the small stuff,
which was not in existence at the
time of the original sale, the people
had a right to expect a half interest
in these limits at the end of thirty
years of reforestry.
The minister further intimated
that at that time modern forestry
methods should be adopted, and only
matured timber taken out. Under
such an arrangement the Province
might justify the bearing of half the
cost of fire protection—just as it at
present bears the entire cost on tim-

course, be necessary to exclude settlement entirely from districts which
might be given over to reforestry.

CENTURY OP PEACE
Proposal for Erection on Boundary
Bluff of Monument to Commemorate Centenary
It is sugegsted that a monument
of peace be erected on Boundary
Bluff, on Point Roberts, on the International line, and overlooking
the waters ofthe Pacific on the Gulf
of Georgia. The promoters of this
idea are the   Peacemakers'    associa
tion of the State of Washington. The
object and purpose of its erection is
the commemoration of peace between
all neighbors for the period of one
hundred years, with the promise of
peace for all future generations.
Part of the plan is to ask the two
governments to grant and donate to
the public a strip of land at least one
mile wide on each side of the boundary line, extending from Boundary
Bay to the Gulf of Georgia, as an international ark, the two governments
appropriating $100,000 each. The,
monument is to be built by popular
subscription, and the specifications
call for a circular, concrete shaft 112
feet high.
Work on the monument, as well as
the construction of the various park
buildings should be commenced at
once to be completed by 1914. It
has been suggested that a similar
monument be erected on the line at
Lake Champlaln.

A bill to regulate the operation of

measure is regarded as quite a drastic one by the motormen. The apparent aim is to overcome the danger
of accidents which have been all too
common of late.
The attorney general, explaining
his bill to regulate the use and operation of motor vehicles, said it was
quite a departure from the existing
act. There was no desire to be unnecessarily severe or drastic, but the
first principle of the bill was that
pedestrians and those who were driving or riding animals must he protected. There was nothing In the
act which a fair and honest motorist
need fear. It was only directed at
the reckless and against them it
would be strictly enforced. It was
felt by the superintendent of provin
cial police and the department that
the regulations should be brought
up to date. The bill would not be
forced at any great speed through
committee and opportunity would be
given to any persons Interested to
make representations regarding its
provisions.
Mr. Bowser said that all must recognize that this was an age of rapid
transit, but for all that public safety
must be protected and the rights of
pedestrian and vehicular traffic respected. This must be recognized by
motorists. The code of regulations
now drawn up he believed to be a
complete one.
While cities would still control tbe
licensing of autos for hire, power
was taken away from them to in any
way affect speed. This was done because of the varying speeds which
different municipalities fixed, and
the advantage of having one standard of speed throughout the entire
province. This the bill fixed at ten
miles an hour in congested parts of
cities and in wooded country, nad
twenty-five miles an hour in open
country. Where a street car had
stopped to let off or take on passen
gers a motor must slow down to four
miles, and bridges must be crossed at
slow speed. A fee of $10 would be
imposed for registration, not to apply this year to those already 11
censed, nor to foreign owners, but
the latter must report to the police
within six hours of arrival. The revenue would all go to the department
it being considered unfair that the
municipalities should collect the fees
while the province enforced the law
Chauffeurs would be licensed, and
no person under seventeen would be
allowed to drive. The numbers must
be displayed on the front lamps and
in letters at least four inches high on
the back of a car. In the case of a
horse being ridden or driven, the
person with it was superior to the
driver of a motor. In case of accident the person driving the motor
must go back and give number and
name of owner and chauffeur, as
well as reporting the matter to the
police within six hours in the city or
twenty-four hours in the country.
Owner and chauffeur were alike responsible In every case, and the onus
was on them to prove they were not
guilty of an offence.
THE WORLD'S HORSES
Estimate Made of the Number That
There Is in Existence at Ihe
Present Time
It has been estimated that of the
100,000,000 horses in the world,
about 80,000,000, or tour-fifths of
the whole number exist In the temperate zones, and that nearly all of
these are to be found In Occidental
countries.
The remaining twenty millions,
scatered about the tropics, are said
to be but poor representatives of the
animal as It Is known to the peoples of America and Europe.
The horse's carrying capacity
ranges from 150 to 200 pounds. The
llama can carry from 50 to 200
pounds; the donkey from 100 to 200
pounds; the ox from 150 to 200
pounds; and the elephant from 1,800
to 2,500 pounds.

REAL  ESTATE ACTIVITY
The grading of Ihe streets of
Prince Rupert with the consequent
revelation of what the city will look
like when it assumes important
business proportions, is having its
effect upon the real estate market
on the commercial centre of the city.
The advance of the work on Second
avenue to a point where the general
levels of it can be seen, affords an
opportunity to picture the general
character of the completed thoroughfare.
There have been those who have
criticised the city's site and who,
after a casual glance over the location have come to the conclusion
that there can never be anything but
confusion with respect to its streets.
These critics will now have their
prophecies rudely upset. A walk along
Second avenue even with the work
no further advanced than at present,
shows a grade that any city might
feel proud of. For one block between Second and Third streets there
will be a grade of about 5 per cent
or a rise of one foot in twenty. For
the remainder of the distance between McBride to Lynch's, the grade
will nowhere else be more than 3
per cent. The street in fact will be
practically a level one. In this respect it will be the envy of the other
coast cities, like Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle.
What is true of Second avenue
will also apply to Third avenue and
First avenue, when the work is advanced on these thoroughfares. The
grades on those strets will be very
similar to those on Second, so that in
the business section of the city there
will be a condition of affairs as far
as street grades are concerned, that
will be difficult to duplicate by any
other city.
With the work completed the real
activity in business real estate may
be expected to commence. There
are few who can, while a townslte is
in the rough, picture the true situation after the grading Is done. The
Inability on the part of the general
public to do this is what has led to
most erroneous views to prevail as
to the future character of the streets
here.
It must be remembered that the
G. T. P. spent an immense sum on
the proper laying out of the townsite
The best of landscape gardeners
were employed, so that the results
might be the most satisfactory.
Probably some mistakes were made
but it has been found that in a general way the plans have worked out
well.
Values of lots have advanced very
rapidly where the grading has been
undertaken. By the time the spring
opens and the work along the different avenues is still nearer completion, there will be commencing an
Inrush of prospective investors into
this northern district. The city will
appeal to these in an altogether different light to that in which it has
appealed in former years before the
grading was undertaken. The inducement to purchase will be correspondingly increased and there can
be little doubt that the spring will
open up with an active demand
created for real estate, especially in
the   business   section.
THE HERRING  FISHERIES
The liii" of men and hoys employing their spare time in catching herring along the wharves of the waterfront is but the beginning or an Industry that will in a few years yield
Its mlllons of dollars and employ
thousands of men.
We do not mean to refer in this
lo the whole fishing Industry. We
refer to the one branch of it, the
herring and the curing of It.
In reaching this conclusion It is
not necessary to draw examples from
other countries. An example is afforded right in this province where,
within a few years' time the herring
industry was built up from practically nothing to an enterprise furnishing a revenue last year of about
f 1,000,000 and employing close upon
1,000 men directly.
This is in the harbor of Nanalmo,
where It is not pretended that the
most Is made out of the Industry.
The monopolizing by the Japanese of
a very large part of the business has
had Injurious effects and there has
been lacking the stimulus whfeih
would come from other lines of the
fishing industry being capable of development such as exists here.
About seven or eight years ago
Nanalmo boasted a little floating
shed wliere a few herring were kippered and smoked in a very antiquated way. In addition to that the
industry was given over to a few
Indians who filled their boats by
using a stick with pointed nails
driven in, upon which the herring
were caught as this primitive gear
was drawn upwards through the water and deflected towards the canoe.
An experiment was tried with respect
to this line of industry and in consequence the salting of immense quantities for bait to be used by the New
England Fish company followed.
Then was evolved the more remunerative work of kippering the herring and of treating them in other
ways for export trade. While the
industry has not been nearly as vigorously pushed as it should have
been, yet a very considerable line of
business has been built up.
For the year just closed, according to the reports prepared by the
Dominion Fishery inspector, there
were 55,600,000 pounds of herring
salted in Nanaimo harbor. In addition to this 260,000 pounds were
utilized as fresh fish and 15,000
pounds were smoked. This is exclusive of 1,840,000 pounds used as bait
and which represents the poorer
quality which is cheaply handled.
For the salted herring an immense
trade already awaits the industry in
the Orient, the price being low,
representing about $17.50 a ton, but
the labor of treating herring being
very little. The more remunerative
branch of the business is that of
smoking, which brings the value of
the herring from one cent a pound
to twelve cents a pound.
The vauie of the herring industry
last year to Nanaimo is put by the
department of fisheries at $977,400,
exclusive of that taken for halibut
bait, which would put it easily over
the $1,000,000 mark.
Prince Rupert, which is considered
by those best acquainted with the
facts, to be far ahead of Nanalmo as
a herring fishing centre, has othera
advantages that the southern city
has not. It will be better situated
as far as shipping facilities are concerned and should be developed to a
far greater extent. The herring is
but a small portion of the fishing
industry that will go to build up
vast enterprises here. It can be carried olit on small capital and give
good returns. In Nanaimo about
000 men find employment in the herring trade.
THE JARDIXE  INCIDENT
The legislature at Victoria has
had the amusement of hearing John
Jardine, the member for Esquimau,
explain his differences with the Liberal leaders in British Columbia,
and tell how be fought Hon. William
Templeman to a finish last fall in a
real pugilistic encounter in the office
of the public works department in
Victoria.
This has been followed, it appears,
by the repudiation of Jardine as a
Liberal and a demand made by the
Liberal association, of Esquimau, for
his  resignation   as  a  member.
We will not undertake to defend
Jardine or his course. He is in no
sense a power in tha, politics of this
country. His resignation would be
nothing to lament on the part of the
province and an appeal to the electorate if he did resign would result
in the placing of another Conservative In the legislature.
Jardine won his election because
he tacitly renounced the policy pursued by the Liberal party in the last
election. It Is true that John Oliver
tried out the effect of that wonderful
railway map of his in Esquimau
early in Ihe campaign, but Jardine
was too practical a politician and
was being managed by the wily
Charlie Mcintosh, who was too good
a judge of public opinion nol to
know thai "that map" of Oliver's
was something that could never suc-
i-i'cd In catching Ihe electorate. Jardine and his manager, therefore,
practically repudiated (he Oliver
leadership and its many weaknesses
and ran their own campaign which
was in support of the McBride railway policy wliere votes wore to be
gained in that way and by appealing to the local sentiment with respect to the navy and were ready to
show Esquimau harbor crowded
with warships again, due to the Liberal policy at Ottawa. Jardine
practically ran as an independent
candidate. Had he not, he would
not be In the legislature today.
Now comes the announcement that
John Oliver, the compiler of "that
map," is recalling the record of Jardine as a grafter who overcharged
the Dominion government for painting the quarantine station at William Head. The statements of John
Oliver will cause no surprise. But
knowing  all  this  why  did  the  im
maculate Mr. Oliver sit through the
life of one parliament with this
grafter as one of his colleagues and
why did he go into the constituency
at the last election and recommend
tlie people of the district to elect him
as their representative? If Jardine
is not fit to represent the riding now,
neither was he fit to do so when he
sat side by side with Mr. Oliver and
devised means for defeating the Conservative government, for the William Head episode dates back many
years.
THE   HOSPITAL
Tlier should be a very full attendance of the Hospital association
this evening. This is an institution
that appeals to every citizen. It is
one of the most practical methods of
evidencing a philanthropic spirit.
The hospital under present day conditions has come to be looked upon
as an absolute necessity. Its doors
must be open to those who cannot afford to pay as well as to those who
can contribute for the attendance
given. Prince Rupert as the centre
of a vast district where, works which
are somewhat hazardous are to be
carried on will require a first-class
hospital. The present institution is
the beginning of what will have to
be enlarged from time to time to
meet the pressing demands.
CARNEGIE'S  GIFT
He Has Endowed Institute Bearing
His  Name to Extent  of
$25,000,000
Andrew Carnegie's announcement
of the addition of $10,000,000 to the
Carnegie Institute endowment fund,
makes a total of $25,000,000. The
addition was made, he said, because
the work of the institute had been
unexpectedly satisfactory. He believes that results heretofore only
dreamed can be obtained. This announcement brings the total up to
the $200,000,000 mark.
It was also announced that Prof.
Hale of the United States observatory on Mount Wilson, California, had
discovered 60,000 new worlds,
through a new telescope more powerful than any one ever built . Commenting on this declaration, Mr.
Carnegie said:
"The whole world will soon be listening to the new oracle on the top
of Mount Wilson. In the new telescope is it lens 100 inches in diameter. I hope I'll live long enough to
hear the revelations coming from
Prof. Hale.
"The Carnegie institute had a
large endowment, before its success
had warranted of $25,000, ibut I
believe that the results of its research will pay in service to the
world more than tenfold.
"The work of the institution in
one instance, cleared from blame a
sea captain who had run his vessel
on the rocks, and probably saved
other vessels from one to three degrees out of the way."
Carnegie's instituption was chartered "for t.tje promotion of investigation in the broadest and most liberal manner possible." Its activites
cover the entire world and it sends
scientific expeditions everywhere in
the advancement of science.
COAL MINE REGULATIONS
Operators  Present  Their Views  Before Minister of Mines—Oxygen Gas Supply
An influential deputation, representative of the coal mines operators
of British Columbia, and including
Messrs. Graham,^tockett, Ashworth,
Sutton and Russell, a few days ago,
interviewed Premier McBride with
regard to the suggested relaxation
and amendment of certain of the features of the Coal Mines Regulation
Hill, which is now before the legislature on motion for second reading.
Associated with the first minister
land minister of mines) in receiving
the delegation were Mr. R. F. Tol-
mie, deputy minister, and Mr. F. II.

The deputation members directed
their remarks lo certain desired
amendments to the act as now before
the house, and were assured by the
Premier that their representations
would obtain earnest consideration
before the measure In question becomes statutory law.
With reference to one matter in
consideration, It Is understood that
the operators directed attention to
the difficulty at present experienced
in securing an adequate and dependable supply of oxygen for the Drae-
ger life-saving apparatus recently Installed In provincial colliery centres.
The government was urged either to
provide for provincial manufacture
of this essential, or to make such
arrangements as wll lfacllitate its
economical purchase. In all probability, if the necessary plant Is available,  the government will    assume

DUAL LANGUAGE
Trouble Over Railway Ticket That Is
Not Procurable in the French
Language
One of the first conflicts respecting the Lavergne law, passed at the
last session, occurred recently, and
as a result actions for damages will
be instituted by Mr. Trudel, notary,
of St. Roche, against the Quebec &
Lake St. John Railway company
and against Conductor Richard. Mr.
Trudel resides at Charlesbourg, but
comes to Quebec every day, and on
Saturday morning he asked the railway agent at Charlesbourg f for a
ticket printed in both languages. .
As there were no such tickets to
be secured, Mr. Trudel refused to
purchase any other and got on board
the train. When Conductor Richard
came along Mr. Trudel informed him
that he had no ticket and the conductor offered to sell him one but
as it was not printed in French he
refused to accept it. As a result he
was ordered off thetrain at Limoilou
station and had to walk into the city.
He has given his solicitor instructions to issue writs against the company and the conductor.
The bill to compel the railway
companies to print their tickets
time-tables and other information
for the public in French as well as
English, was first introduced in the
Dominion parliament, but th'e opposi
tlon to It was so pronounced that tbe
measure was soon a-bandoned. When
It was passed by the Quebec legislature the railway companies expressed strong opposition to the law
and, as stated in despatcues, they decided to ignore it, and ,if necessary,
carry the case to the Privy Council.
The railways claim that the enforcement of the law would be expensive and vexatious to them and
also that It is ultra vires of the legislature, the regulation of railways
lying with the Dominion parliament
and having been deputed to the Dominion railway commission.

COTTAGE CITY LOST
Reports as to the condition of the
Cottage City at Cape Mudge Indicate that she is a total loss The
wreck lies over in her starboard
side, washedv by a strong swell on
Cape Mudge reef.
The Cottage City was 'going about
half speed when she struck heavily,
the strong flood from Seymour Narrows having set her on the reef.
The passengers were greatly frightened and many rushed for lifebelts
and hurried to the boats, waiting un-
III they were launched. Capt. Jan-
sen and some of the officers ran
to the boat deck and told the panicky passengers they were not ■ in
danger. The steamer was pounding
meanwhile and listed over. Capt.
Jansen decided to lower the boats,
and there was quite a rush for
places, but when the officers standing at the falls shouted "Women and
children first," this soon stopped,
and the boats were lowered without
much excitement, all geting away in
good shape despite a heavy swell.
CAPE MUDGE LIGHT
Today's wireless reports record
the fact that the Alameda, a passen-
ge rsteamslilp of the Oceanic company, on its way to Alaskan ports
from Seattle, grounded at Cape
Mudge early this morning. She has
floated again, uninjured.
The Cottage City is reported to
be past salving. Cape Mudge is
proving, therefore, a dangerous
point.
At the Shipmasters' association, in

resolution was passed recommending
that the ligh tat Cape Mudge, where

WHALING STATIONS
Preparations are already being
made by the Canadian North Pacific
Fisheries cmopany for the coming
season. Ten vessels will be operated this year, five of which were in
use last year; the Orion, St. Lawrence, Sebastian, Germania and William Grant. Five are now on the
way from Norway; the Red, the
Green, the Black, the Yellow and
the White. The William Grant and
the Sebastian are now receiving
their annual overhauling, and when
they'are launched the other three of
the old fleet will be hauled out
scraped, cleaned and painted. After
this work is completed, the steamers
will be assigned to their different
stations.
By the time the season opens four
stations will be ready to prepare the
captured whales for shipment; the
Sechart, the Kyuquot,.the Rose Harbor and the new Naden Harbor station, now in course of construction.
The Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Henriette is now under charter to
the fisheries company, and is engaged in carrying the materials and
supplies for the new station. The
Petriana recntly purchased from the
Northern Steamship company, will
carry the finished products from the
various stations. Her name will be
changed. With ten steamers engaged
in whale fishing, the Canadian North
Pacific Fisheries is fully justified in
anticipating the largest season's
catch in history.
C.   P.   R.   ADOPTS   On.
The C. P. R. steamer Princess
Charlotte will be laid up for several
weeks and besides being extensively
overhauled will be equipped with
oil burners. She will be the second
of the fleet to have this more economic system for steam generating
installed, tbe first being the Princess
May, which is at present lying
alongside Mullen's wharf. In turn
the Princess Victoria will be laid up
and fitted with this modern plant,
ami it is understood that the greater
number of the vessels will, before
the present year has elapsed, be oil
burners.
Oil has been found to be more efficient as fuel for getintg up steam,
and It Is also a money-saver in the
boiler room. Although the C. P. R.
fleet will have to secure oil from the
United States for the present It Is
hoped that the Canadian fields will
shortly be producing oil for the
Princess line.

IN   PYGMY   LAND
Some New Features of New Guinea
Told  by  Explorers  in
Country
Further exploration of the island
of Dutch New Guinea by the party
led bzy Mr. Goodfellow, and Includ
Ing Captain Rawling and Dr. Eric
Marshall, shows the country in a
more unfavorable light than ever; it
is clearly a place to be avoided.
Part of it is "virgin jungle never
before trodden by the foot of man
to its -hidden depths the natives are
complete strangers; the pygmies
from the hils avoid it; and the natives from the lowlands fear it. The
outskirts and more open parts bor
dering the river are frequented by
cassowary (a kind of emu), boar and
wallaby (a small variety of kangaroo), and are the haunt of the greater bird of paradise, whose shrill, joyous call enlivens these dark depths
Less than a mile from the river it
is impossible for a man to stand at
any spot without being touched on
every side by tree stems.
"It is the haunt of all creeping
things, from the deadly puff adder
to the greater, yet comparatively
harmless python. Noxious insects
.abound, and leeches swarm on the
saturated, moist-ridden trees and
undergrowth. Everything decaying;
no air seems to circulate there, and
what little there is foetid and stifling. Dismal, dark, dripping! Four
weeks' arduous work has resulted in
tbe cutting of 5,900 yards (3V2
miles) of road."
The inhabitants of Dutch New
Guinea are not an attractive race.
"The native woman," says Dr. Marshall, " 'drags up' the children, euls
the firewood, brings in Ihe sago,
works the canoes, occasionally proving her skill as a warrior In the family and village quarrels, and always
coming off best Willi her tongue.
She Is usually content with a strip
of bark cloth. When in mourning
she dispenses even with this. The
male sex predominates, and most of
the men have to be content with
one wife.
On the death of a man, the widow,
clad like Eve, but as ugly as Satan,
crawls around the grave wailing
and chanting, performing weird
movements with arms and body,
which may or may not be meant for
dancing."
The explorer also adds some fresh
particulars of the mountain pygmies "Further Inland," he says In
the foothills of the mountains, we
have discovered a still more primitive race. Pygmies, or little men,
averaging 4 feet to 4 feet 8 Inches
In  height,  wild   ,shy, and  treacher-

KELLY AS A
Martin,   M.P., Tells  How
Liberal Porty in B.C. is
Handled.
the
The Former  Leader of the  Reform
Section Explains the Situation Hero
Joseph Martin, member for St.
Pancras in the Imperial House of
Commons has been telling of the
working of the Liberal party in
British Columbia before the commission investigating the Irregularities
connected with tbe Chinese immigration.
No one can deny that Mr. Martin
knows whereof he speaks. His statements bear out what has long been
supposed to be the condition of affairs. In his examination, the following took place:
"I noticed in an interview with
you in the press on the subject of
graft, and in that you referred to
this commission. Have you any information wtih regard to graft in
Chinese immigration?" asked Mr.
McCrossan.
"I don't think I said anything in
particular about this commission.
What I referred to was the graft going on to my knowledge In this city
between the government and the
people the government put in charge
—Mr. ivelly, for one."
"Do you know anything about
graft In smuggling opium or Chinese?"
"I believe graft has permeated
every department. The only thing
I know is this: Every department
in which the government spends
money in British Columbia, I believe is affected. Everything goes
through a local organization of
which Mr. Kelly is the head, and you
practically have to buy everything
you want. I don't know of any
frauds unless you call that fraud."
"Do you know of any appointments to the Chinese or customs departments* that were bought?"
"I know that Mr. Kelly has had
the personal say with regard to all
government business in the province.
I have been told tha the gets this and
in return supplies the government
with campaign funds at election
time."
Mr. McCrossan—Which cannot be
proved?
Mr. Martin—If I had charge of an
investigation I could prove it to the
hilt, without any question. I would
call a lot of people who would have
knowledge. I have been told that
there is graft in every department in
which Mr. Kelly saw a dollar to be
made. Nobody could get a dollar or
a contract from the government In
the last nine years except through
Mr. Kelly. This, in my opinion,
points to a genera] scheme of fraud.
Air. McCrossan asked for names.
"I would suggest Mr. Kelly as a
witness, Mr. Templeman and Mr.
Ralph Smith, M. P. I don't suppose
you would get much out of them, but
there are others who know. From
time to time since I have been living
here different people, have suggested
things to me, but It wobld not be fair
to these people now to ask them to
prove their statements. They open
up a field for Investigation."
"Biit that Is all outside the scope
of this enquiry," said Mr. McCrossan.
"Then, I don't know what you
brought me here for," replied Mr.
Martin.
"You might include Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in that list of witnesses I
suggested," added Mr. Martin. "He
is the causeof the whole trouble. He
could put an end to the whole thing
in five minutes by refusing to take
Mr. Kelly's appointments. As it is, I
can hardly say that there is a Liberal party here. It has disappeared
in a cloud of smoke."
In Vancouver the enquiry has become general: "Has anyone seen
Kelly." It is not expected that Mr.
Kelly will be seen until after the
smoke clears away.

CANNERS PREPARING
Big Season is Expected   in the North
This Coming Sum-
Tbe
Plate   Is   Already   Ordered   and
Early   Start   Will  Be
.Made
British Columbia salmon canners,
in preparation for tbe canning season this year, which is expected to
equal in results that of 1910,. have
spent oer $1,500,000 for equipment
and supplies. Tin plate, solder and
lead for the salmon cans, boxes, nets
and gear are all included in this
amount which is about the largest
ever put out by the canners of the
province for their business in an
"off" season. The tin plate for the
greater part is coming from the old
country on the steamers of the Holt
and Weir lines, and will arrive early
in  March.
Although some of the canners had
more equipment remaining at the
close of the season last year than
was anticipated on the whole the
year's results were regarded as very
satisfactory. This year in the nortli
a heavy catch is anticipated, although it will be one of the light
seasons for tlie Fraser river canneries. Several of the northern canneries are no wundergoing overhauling.
By the advent of the fishing season
in June they will be In readiness for
operations. Cannery hands will De

grocers, however, fail to join the exchange in this, a retail market will
be established by the exchange. This
is inevitable.
Mr. Thomas Brydon was elected to
the president's chair and Mr.
Urummond was re-elected the secretary. There was a large number of
delegates present.

"Here they have built a city on

In the course of his letter the doctor says he was glad to get. the word
while in Los Angeles that Mayor
Manson had (been elected with a
strong following. "The result," he
says "is exactly what I predicted before I left. The new council is composed of good timber nd there are
enough of the old birds on the roost
to teach the fledglings how to fly.
With a mayor of Mr. Manson's ability and parliamentary and municipal
experience and a council composed
of representative men, the cltzens of
Prince Rupert may well feel proud.'
FRUIT GROWERS COMBINE
Exchange   in   Victoria  District  Will
Work Co-Operatively If Mer-

That the Victoria Fruitgrowers'
exchange will open a retail insttu-
tion to sell fruit to the consumers at
reduced prices if the grocers of the
city do not support them in buying
all fruit from the exchange and not
from the farmers, was the unanimous endorsation of the members at
the annual meeting. The association
offered to immediately grant $30,-
000 for this purpose, uut it was decided to allow the grocers more time
to enter the proposition.
In many respects the co-operation
of the grocers is an advantage. The
local fruit upon the market will be
of a better grade. At the present
much fruit bought by the grocers
from the farmer direct Is not desirable. It Is the Intention of the exchange that the best be on the mar-

HOW CANADIANS WON
Old country exchanges just to
hand tell of the Oxford-Canadian
hockey team European tour which
began most auspiciously by their
winning the international tournament at the Pale-Nord in Brussels.
Four countries were represented—
Belgium, Germany, Prussia and Canada. The tournament lasted from
December 29 to 31, at which time
the Canadians had won all three
matches with ease. On December 29
they beat Prussia 20 to 2; on December 30 they beat Germany 10 to 1;
and on December 31 they beat Belgium 13 to 2. When the Canadians
left for Berlin from the Gare du
Nord on the Sunday morning, a pious
member of the team nicknamed them
the Benjamin Boys for each man carried away a silver goblet in his valise, while Captain Lanctot took
charge of the handsome silver Challenge cup. The tabulated result of
the tournament was as follows:
—Points—
Team. Wn. Lt. For Agt.
Oxford - Canadians  3       0      43       5
Berliner Schittschub
Club 2
Brussels Ice Hockey
Club 1
Charlottenburger
Sport  Club   ....   0
The Canadians made this excellent
showing in spite of severe handicaps. First and foremost, there is the
difference between European and
Canadian hockey rules. Here on the
continent, as in England, hockey is
played under offside rules somewhat
similar to those of association football. Forward passing is perfectly
legitimate and freely resorted to.
There is no offside as long as the
recipient of the puck has one man
of the opposite side and the goalkeeper between him and the nets.
Then there is a semi-circle marked
cut In front of the goal, within which
the puck is dead, and nobody but
the goalkeeper can touch it. Secondly, the margin of the ice at the
Pole-Nord is not boarded, and many
a wing rush was checked by the puck
going out of bounds. In the third
place, the Canadians had never played together as a team before.

THE COST OF COAL
Representatives  of   Mining  Companies
do Not Believe That Prices
Will be Reduced.
Increased Cost of Production Leaves
Little Hope for Lower Rates
for Fuel
Instead of the cost of coal decreasing in British Columbia there is
every likelihood' of an increase in
the price in the near luture, In the
opinion of Mr. T. Stockett, general
manager of the Hosmer Coal mines.
His opinion in this respect sustained
by Mr. James Ashworth, who as general manager of the Crows Nest Coal
company, operates an organization
which has a monthly output of 110,-
000  tons.
"If," said Mr. Stockett, "a royal
commission is appointed to inquire
Into the cost of. coal, its members
will receive some startling information as to the cost of production in
the west. With the increase in the
cost of living the wages of miners
have to be raised and necessarily the
cost of production becomes greater.
The history of the coal mining industry all over the world shows a
continual advance in the cost of the
product, nad instead of there being
any prospect of a reduction I see
every indication of the price advancing still further. Not only is there
an increase in the wages of the miners but also in the cost of supplies,
and these two factors the price of
which is steadily increasing, will1
mean that he cost of coal will eventually go higher' than it is at present."
In bearing out the foregoing statement made by Mr. Stockett, Mr.
James Ashworth said that the reciprocity arrangement with the United
States, if it went into effect, would
help the coal industry of the province. A further market would be
provided for coke especially by the
wiping out oftne duty which is at
present 90 cents on every ton of coke
exported. The coal operators of the
province expect to find a market for
coke In Idaho, Washington and Montana.
