THE CROWING TIME FOR
CITY OF PRINCE RUPERT
Coming Year Should See Narked Development in This Place—Some of the Factors
That are Working to Make This a Great Centre—Big Companies
Make Provision for Large Coasting Trade With
This Port—Busy Time Promised.
With the opening of the year 1911
it is fitting to look somewhat into
the future and speculate upon the
coming year. A retrospective view
over the past year should convince
the most pessimistic that the city is
making very material progress.
Since last January, the building in
the various sections has been very
marked. This is not as evident to
those who are living here as to the
visitors who come and look over the
ground. No one who has landed
here and gone over the towusite fails
to express his wonderful surprise at
the progress made. This is all the
more remarkable in view of the fact
that there has been no boom and no
attempt to boom the place. The
growth has so far been absolutely
natural. Building has been carried
out only in keeping with the immediate needs and there are no empty
buildings. Business in fact is being carried on in many instances in
premises altogether too small for the
needs of the firms, owing to the fact
that there is not available more commodious places.
There is no doubt that buildiug
operations have been delayed to a
marked extent awaiting the
grading of the streets. With tins
work now under way and every indication that it will be prosecuted
vigorously there will be an added
inducement to investors to build
even more substantial structures
than have hitherto been built.
Knocking  Policy
There is no denying the fact that
ttore has been a studied attempt by
the residents of other cities who fear
the effect of the opening up of this
commercial centre, to detract from
Prince Rupert. The policy Is an
unwise one, but has been followed.
The building up of a great seaport
here will create its own trade.
While in some respects older established cities in the south will lose
a certain amount of trade, yet the
impetus that will be given to a coasting business on the Pacific will in
other ways work a benefit to
those places and their gains will undoubtedly more than balance Hie
losses sustained by the commercial
development here.
Future Assured
The carping of those who try to
belittle the city, while it may have
its eftect Just now will never have
any lasting effect. The city is assured. As the terminus of the Best
constructed transcontinental railway
on the continent, working in conjunction with the oldest'established
transportation system in the east and
providing iiom Prince Rupert the
shortest route across the Pacific to
the -rient, it requires no seer to understand that the port must be one
of the most important ones in the
world. With the wide ramifications
that the old Grand Trunk system has
In eastern Canada and the United
States, there will be heavy demands
made upon the carrying capacity of
the G. T. P. from the time the road
opens. At the very start trans-Pa-
clflc carriers will have to be provided
and in order to compete with other
through lines the best will have to
be put on. The result will be that
Prince Rupert will not start as Vancouver and Seattle did when the rails
were laid to those places. Prince
Rupert will have to start with facilities to equal those provided at the
ports mentioned at the present time.
The city has to be made ready for
that time. To do it there can be no
loss of time permitted. There Is
much to be done and to be done
quickly. Prom now until 1913',
which at the latest must be the date
when the railway comes through
Prince Rupert must made rapid progress. If the city is to be ready
for the handling of the trade there
must be a tremendous amount of pre-
llminar preparations made.
Safe Investment
But Prince Rupert has not to
wait for that time in order to experience a marked development. The
past summer saw an immense num.-,
ber of visitors within the city and'
i i-erj one went away well satistjjj8|
with the progress.    .Men of v.viSSpi
representing capital, have gone into
the resources of the north and they
are prepared to take their part in
developing what has been pronounced by those who are capable of
judging, the richest area in the province.
The large transportation companies are keenly alive to the opportunities and the business which is to
follow. The G. T. P. itself will this
summer have its two commodious
three-funnel steamers, Prince Rupert and Prince George, on the run
between here and the south. The
Canadian Northern, according to a
recent announcement, will have two
three-funnel vessels on the same
route, making connection also with
Stewart. The C. P. R. is known to
have plans afoot for making a determined effort to hold the northern trade against the newcomers.
That company is usually very quiet
about its plans hut it is reported that
Prince Rupert will be made a distributing point by that company,
which will furnish a very efficient
service between the south and the
port and then by utilizing some of
the smaller craft possessed by the
company, distribution will be made
from its depot here to the surrounding centres. The G. T. P. is likewise getting a fleet together to operate out of here, giving a complete
service with the Queen Charlottes,
Stewart and all other districts coming within the sphere of influence of
Prince Rupert. Midsummer, in fact,
should see this harbor one of the
busiest on the Pacific coast from the
standpoint of coasting trade.
Hallway Connection
From the standpoint of railway
transportation the early spring will
see the opening up of trade. General Superintendent Meehan is planning for a ver actyive summer. Rolling stock is being constantly received
so that the company may be able to
take care of all the trade offered.
With 100 miles of track to be opened
for traffic all supplies for the construction camps of the contractors,
as well as the company's own track-
laying gangs, will be handled by
rail to the end of the steel. The new
steamers oflf Foley, Welch & Stewart
will be operated above the canyon
from the end of the steel. With only
80 miles at the longest to carry
freight, the railway company will
have quite a task to keep all the
freight delivered to supply the
stea'mers for such a short run.
But the construction freigfit is
not all that will be offering. Th,ero
is every indication that the interior
of the province will be sought by a
vast army of prospectors, landseek-
ers and investors in various lines.
At the present time General Superintendent Meehan has many seeking accommodations to be carried into the
fertile valleys of the Skeena to begin
farming. The coming summer will
see an immense influx by fhose who
are anxious to take advantage of the
opportunities for serving what will
be the best market in the province.
Fortunately the task of clearing
the land in some of these agricultural sections will not be heavy. The
land can in many cases be brought
under cultivation without the discouragements that attend the clearing in some of the other sections of
the country. The land is fertile and
promise excellent returns to those
who locate there. The markets open
to these settlers is the best that
can be found. In the flourishing
seaport of Prince Rupert the market
will he one that will give rich returns. Then In addition to this the
mining camps of the Hazelton and
adjacent country will be within reach
of those valleys by rail and water
and will provide what is recognized
as the best character of market.
Settlers Wanting
The extension of the line on into
the Bulkley valley this summer
should he followed by a very considerable local trade. Settlers and
their effects will pour into the Interior this spring and all summer long
supplies will have to be kept moving, j
Bfe early summer will see many in-
Hwstors In the Hazelton mines on f
ground, while the Queen Charlottes
which attracted so much attention
this last slimmer, will he still more
in the public eye. Prince Rupert as
the centre for all this trade will in
addition to serving as a distributing
centre for it all, pass through a
most important development stage.
There is promise of much building
activity in public works and the prospect that this city will be the centre
of the most attention among the cities of the north Pacific coast.
The prospects are most encouraging. The citizens of Prince Rupert
need have no fear. There are too
many enormous forces at work to
make this a great city to allow any
pessimism to exist.
Property Is  Safe
In some instances there have been
representations made that property
was held at too high prices. Taking
into consideration the demands that
are to be made upon the space available here such cannot be held to be
true. Having in view the demands
which will be made for real estate
within the next few years, it is safe
to say that there Is no better field
for investment than in business or
residential property in Prince Rupert. Within five years it is safe to
say that investors will lament that
that did not put their whole available funds into Prince Rupert real
estate. There never was a safer investment.
When the G. T. P. carries out its
scheme for improving the waterfront
by laying out as a park land which
now presents anything but an inviting appearance; when the streets in
the business section are graded, and
other improvements made, Prince
Rupert will be one of the prettiest
cities on the Pacific, which boast
many beautiful centres. Portland,'
Ore., and Vancouver, have nothing to
boast over it and yet those centres
are regarded as good residential cities. Possesing a mild equable climate in which there is never any
suffering from excessive heat in
summer and the temperature in
winter seldom pjasses freezing point
the conditions are such as to induce
very large population to make homes
here.
The stage of rapid development Is
assuredly.close upon the city. United action is needed to make the city
what it is assuredly to become—the
metropoiis of the . nOrth—provided
the people do not sacrifice their own
heritage.

MEETING IN WARDt 1
Prospective Aldermen Who Support Aid.
Mobley Give Their
Views.
On Friday evening the Inaugural
ward gathering for the municipal
campaign for Ward No. 1 was held
in Mclntyre Hall, when John Currie
and Dr. Hall, who are aspirants for
office in that section of the city, held
a joint, gathering.
The meeting was presided over by
Mr. Sloan and the hall was comfortably filled. Other candidates
present were asked to speak as'well
as Mayor Stork.
■Mm  Currie
The first speaker called upon was
Mr. Currie, who said that he had
consented to run only after considerable persuasion. He had invested
all he had in Prince Rupert. He was
going to support Aid. Mobley, not
because he was the best man in
Prince Rupert for the office. He
was the best man in the field, however. Referring to his own qualifications, he said he had served on the
volunteer fire brigade and had also
served on the fire committee. He
wanted to see Prince Rupert go
ahead.    The city  was going ahead.

'      The  present  municipal   cam- *
' paign   Is   not  to   pass   without »
1 roorbacks    from the    dominant *
! section in the city council.    One *
! of these is now due.    It is with *
' respect to the administration of *
•  police affairs.    Smarting  under  *
' the   criticisms  that   the   police *
'  commissioners   have   not     been  *
1 vigilant in their duty something *
' to offset it has been sought. *
This, they believe,   has   been *
' found.    They are going to at- *
' tack Wiliam Manson, the popu- *
' lar   candidate,   on   the   ground *
1 that during the days when the *
' provincial police had control of *
! officers here there were alleged *
*abuses on  the force. *
The public are to be prepared *
: for the flaunting forth  at any *
' time now of a report from the *
chief  of police to  Mayor  Stork  *
1 as chairman of the police com- *
' missioners, that during a search *
1 of books at the Alaska Club in *
' company     with     Mr.   Patmore, *
there were records found which *
indicate that money was paid to *
police  officers.     The  dates  are *
from April  12th and  into May,  *
which antedated the taking over *
1 of the police administration by *
' the city.
This Is probably what Mayor *
'  Stork described" a few evenings *
' ago  as   "dope  that   will   make *
' you  sizzle." *
The public must not  be de- *
1 ceived.    Mr.  Manson,    as    the *
' member for the district at this *
' time  had  no  authority   in  any *
' shape over the police and is too *
' good a public man to attempt *
' to  usurp  nowers  that  are  not *
' conferred upon him.    It is safe *
' to say, however, that had infor- *
' mation that any such work was *
' being   done   by   police   officers *
' been given him he would with- *
' out  delay  have  reported   It  to *
' the provincial  authorities,  just '
' in  the same way as    he    will *
1 when   mayor  of  the  city   take *
' pains    to    have    any    similar *
charges investigated. *
But in this "sizzling" report *
which was designed to be such *)|
a crusher there Ib omission of *
the  fact  that the evidences In *
the book.', of*the Alaska  Club *
show that these    payments    if •
made to the police extended on*
to the time when the city was in *
authority.    The  report  to  the *
mayor cuts off at a convenient *
date. *
This is a "sizzle" that will not *
"sizzle."    Mr.  Manson  Is  in  no  *
sense responsible.    The provin- *
cial authorities at Victoria are *
not in any sense responsible for *
an investigation would have fol-  *
lowed  had  it  been  brought  to *
their attention. *
The administration  of  police *
affairs has not been satisfactory *
under  the  present police  com- *
missioners in the city, owing to *
the inaction of the members. At *
last the commissioners are to be *
aroused  and  investigations will  *
probably   follow   the  latest  ex- *
posures.    The force should have  *
been looked into before the last *
hours of the life of the commis- *
sioners.
The fact that an election i= on or
some such potent, influence has resulted at least in a general awakening of the city with respect to police
matters. It looks as if there would
be a very much needed investigation
into affairs of the city. The police
court will be well occupied for a
week or more disposing of alleged
infractions of the various >;cts relative to public morals.
The real beginning of this a. tlvity
was evident this morning when A.
Zarelli was called upon to answer
a charge of carrying a concealed
weapon having been formally
charged last week. Zarelli made the
charge that he had paid Sergeant
Regan of the police force for protection in the selling of liquor.
This morning the prosecution was
represented by the chief of police
and Alex .Manson, while Zarelli was
defended by L. W. Patmore.
The prosecution called Sergeant
Regan to give evidence as to the taking of the gun from Zarelli. He had
seen Zarelli in the Grill and asked
him for the gun. He had handed
him the revolver which was loaded.
Under cross-examination by Mr.
Patmore, Sergeant Regan said he
was not going up there to play cards.
He was not in the habit of gambling
there. He had played a game of
poker there. He did not know how
long ago it was. Witness could not
recall the date when pressed to do
so, but thought it was a few weeks
ago.
Reverting to the date of the taking
of the gun away, witness said he met
at the head of the stairs Zarelli coming out. Witness did not call him
out. Witness had never seen black
jack played In the town. He did
not know that it was played. He
swore positively he did not see Zarelli at a game of cards nor beckoned
him to come out.
Sergeant Regan said that he asked
Zarelli to give up the gun.    Zarelli
POLICE INVESTIGATION'
The police commissioners are *
to be asked to investigate *
charges against the force. These *
are contained in the evidence *
against Sergeant Regan in the *
police court today. *
It Is not the first time allega- *
tionds of serious character have *
been made against that officer. *
Some months ago the ournal *
pressed that the commisioners *
should go into these and ascer- *
tain the facts so that the officer *
could be exonerated or dis- *
missed. *
In court today the city prose- *
cutor, Alex Manson pressed that •
the police commissioners deal *
with it and stated that an inves- *
tigation should have been held *
previously. *
The chief stated he would *
bring the matter to the atten- *
tion  of the commissioners. *
—that was that whether he had reason  to fear an assault.
.Mr. MBanson thought the onus of
proof was upon the deiense. This
was 'he age of blarkhand letters aid
this man miglt have good reason for
carrying a gun, but he must prove
it.
Mr. Patmore said he was willing
to admit a lot of these. He admitted
Zarelli was.not a British subject, nor
a J. P. The point that Zarelli had no
fear of injury to himself or to his
family, Mr. Patmore would not admit.
The prosecution wished to amend
the information so as to make the
place the Exchange Grill instead of
the public street.
The amendment was made.

anything that might handicap the police and did not know that it. was
necessary.
Mr. Patmore said he did not wish
to do anything that would hinder'the
police. He did not wish to Interfere
with any deep plot they might have.
Finally the chief'said he did not
care If the name were revealed and
after further discussion It was announced that police officer Carney
told him.
Upon the conclusion of the evidence of Sergeant Regan, Mr. Patmore asked if all the evidence for the
prosecution was In. Receiving an affirmative reply he asked for a dismissal on the ground that the charge
had not been proved.
Discussion followed upon the
wording of the Information winch
which was an elaborate one, petting
forth practically the whole of the
sections of the act.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
THE STEWART MINES
W. Fleet Robertson Reports Upon Conditions as He Found
Them.
Provincial Mineralogist    Gives    His
Views on the Northern Mining Camp
William Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, who visited the
Portland Canal mining district last
October, has issued his report on the
new British Columbia mining field.
The report says that the district,
while it has been prospected for 12
years, has only become a prominent
camp in the last two years. Two
other reports from the department
have been issued, the last in 1909 by
the provincial assayer, so Mr. Robertson confines his present report to
the development of the claims near-
ing the production stage.
The report states that there is
only one actual producing mine, the
Portland Canal Mining Company's
property, and that the interest in
this camp at present naturally centres in this, as it is the only company operating that is ready to ship,
—shipment has been arranged for
and is proceeding since the provincial
mineralogist's visit in October. The
group Is composed of twelve claims,
and fractions, viz.: Gipsy, Extension,
Herbert, Mayflower, Mosquito, Richard II., Barney, Sadie, Eclipse, Little
Joe, Little Joe Fraction and Lucky
Seven, all adjoining and situated on
the hih forming the eastern slope of
Bear river and the southern slope of
Glacier creek valleys. Serious development work has yet been confined to the Lucky Seven and Littl6
Joe mining clams.
Regarding the Portland Canal
group the report says "The mineralization of these claims is along
the line of a great fractured zone
which runs in a general north and
south direction, about parallel with
Bear river, not only for the length
of this group of claims, but continues ,both to the north and south,
through a number of other, claims.
This zone is of variable and not
clearly defined width, but is in places
several hundred feet across, and rung
through an argelllte formation, conforming at least very nearly, to both
the strike and dip of the argellite.
Within this zone the argellite has
been more or less crushed, and presents, when cemented together by the
quartz-vein matter, a brecciated
mass. Within the zone there are a
number of comparatively small fel-
sitic dykes, running with the fissure,
apparently injections after the formation of the fissure, and these dykes
seem to be present wherever important mineralization has taken place.
Through this general zone of crushing, siliceous infiltration naturally
following certain channels which the
crushing had rendered more open—
lines of least resistance to the flow
of the solution—and these channel'
of siltciftcation now form the quartz
veins in which the mineral is found."
Mr. Robertson says the Portland
Canal district cannot as yet be taken
as proven, for although prospecting
has been going on for years, the majority of claims staked have not, and
could not have been given sufficient
development in the last two years to
prove their value. Only two or three
of the older claims have done serious
development, and of these, at least
one property has shown by such
that ore Is present in quantity and
quality sufficient to justify its being
called a mine, and to guarantee extraction from present development
for at least two years. On other
properties where the actual development Is slight, the work done by
Nature has exposed such an amount
of mineral as to give considerable
hope for future development. Other
extracts from the report rend as follows:
"Portland inlet and its inner extension, known as Portland Canal,
form a great continuous fiord or arm
of the sea, extending from the Pacific ocean, at Dixon entrance, in a
northerly direction for about 110
miles, and so almost penetrating the
coast range of mountains—a granite
range which follows the entire coast
line of British Columbia, and extends
northwards into Alaska. This is the
only arm of the sea so cutting the
mountain range, although the range
is cut elsewhere by certain rivers
flowing westward from the interior,
notably the Stikine, Skeena and Fra-
ser rivers, the latter two having already been utilized as railway locations.
"The importance of this arm, from
a mining point of view, is that it
gives deep seawater navigation to,
and so renders accessible a district
in which  the granites of the coast
range came in contact with the sedimentary formations lying to the
eastward and farther inland.
"Seldom in British Columbia has
the truth been so clearly demonstrated as at Stewart, that the value of
an ore-body is dependent upon the
facility of getting its contents to market, and still more seldom have the
facilities been so quickly obtained.
It is as yet too early in the development to say whether the ore occurs in chutes, chimneys, or some
other fdrm, but the tunnel workings
of the Portland Canal Mining Company have demonstrated that the
'frosty-ore,' first proved on the surface, extends downward along a defined 'pitch' which would seem to
mark the northern end of an ore-
chute, while the tunnels have not as
yet at their faces reached the limit
of the body of 'pay-ore' to the south.
By the terms 'ore-chute' it is not
intended to Imply a body of solid ore,
but a portion of the length of the
vein sufficiently heavy mineralized to

EGG PRODUCTION.
Figures   Showing   That  There   Has
Falling Off in Canada..
The hen is admitted to be one of
the greatest financial factors in the
country today, and she is also one
of the most overworked. Notwithstanding the fact that the whole of
the breed are working overtime, as
it were, they are unable to meet more
than the demands of the Dominion,
whose consumption is calculated at
thirty dozen eggs per head per annum, says the Montreal Star.
With the home demand thus developed to the extent of the supply,
egg exports this year have fallen to
zero. The shipping company which
carried prdactically the whole of the
export egg trade in their ship's holds
has not conveyed a single case this
year from Montreal. Eight years ago
Canada exported twelve million dozens of eggs during the fiscal year,
representing a value of $1,733,242..
In 1909 the egg exports had fallen to
552,850 dozen dozen, worth $124,-
315. This year the exports amount
to prdactically nothing in eggs; good,
bad or indifferent.
The gradual decline In export is
shown by the following official returns;

Interviewed on this subject in
Montreal, John A. .Gunn, vice-president of the Ontario Provincial Winter Fair, stated that the export trade
had declined for the simple reason
that, for the time being, the home
demand was equal to th ecountry's
supply. ' A paying remedy would be
found, he said, if the farmer would
increase his stock of poultry and
carefully study the trade conditions.
"Why," he declared enthusiastically, " in the United State sit is calculated that the hen can produce in
three months—and have a week to
spare—wealth equal to all the capital of all the    banks    that    clear

a matter of, I believe, something like
$27,000,000. If the total value of
the produpctlon of the hen was diverted to paying off the national
debt of the United States, it is computed that she would accomplisch
this in one year and ten months.
"While we have nodt been able to
collect the same data as regards Canada, it is not unreasonable to assume thath it shows a value similar
to that of the United States, considering the population. Therefore, 1
submit that the poultry and egg business Is one of the most important
branches of industry that we have"

FALSE  ISSUES
As the municipal campaign progresses ii In (dines evident thai the
opponents of Mr. Manson are not
going to be confined to questions immediately affecting the city and its
administration. Recent speeches of
Aid. Pattullo and Mayor Stork
would lead one to believe that the
election was not a municipal one at
all, Imi thai these men were contesting positions at the head of affairs
in I he province. Premier McBride
and his government would appear to
be on trial. It is quite evident that
these men who are so ready at times
to disavow any intention of bringing
party politics into the fight are attempting to take the fullest advantage that can be derived from Intro
during at other times such a course
As far as William Manson's course is
concerned It is well known to the
working men of the city that he stood
by their rights against the G. T. P.
in the matter of increased wages at
a time when no party advantage was
to be derived from it and when no
advantage was likely to come to him
by bis course. He stood by the
rights of the citizens at every stage
even in connection with the Tsimp-
sean Power company, and the water
records for the city. It is true that
he has not made use of language
that can only be interpreted as bombastic nonsense such as Aid. Pattullo sees fit to indulge in with re
speet to these matters. On the other
hand, however, he acted and secured for the city Incalculable advantages the full value otf which
will be understood as time goes on.
It is not necessary at this time to
defend the McBride Government
against the attacks of Aid. Pattullo
and Mayor Stork. If their ambitions
are to sit in the legislative bodies of
the country It would bo advisable for
them to show rather more constructive ability in municipal affairs.
The bathos of Aid. Pattullo a few
evenings ago, when describing his
trip to Victoria In connection with
the Tsimpsean Power proposition,
was not calculated to raise him in
the eyes of the public.
It was the cheapest kind of claptrap that he attempted. Why, he
would have had his audience believe
that Premier McBride and the members of the Government were literally seared out. of their senses by
him. His words would indicate that
Al.i. Pattullo, "the big I," was for
the week or so that he spent in
Victoria practically the whole centre
of attraction about the legislature.
He was, to judge from his own words
a sort of "Jack, the Giant Killer,"
but he admits that he always was
just too late. The wicked premier
made the wheels of the legislature
work in such a way as to deceive this
mighty defender of the people.
There are those who were in Victoria at the time of this wonderful
visit who had occasion to he about
the halls or the legislature also, and
who can testify that all this consternation which it sought to make the
people of Prince Rupert believe prevailed, is all fanciful.
As far as the interests of Prince
Rupert are concerned we arc more
ready to trusl Hon. Richard McBride
to see that these are protected than
we are to rely upon Aid, Pattullo and
that we can say without casting aspersions upon Aid. Pattullo, We
know thai Mr. McBride has the greatest faith In the future of Prince Rupert, and that he is as Interested In
seeing i; go forward as any resident
of the city.
The solicitation  of the  premier  111
the advance nt of the city is shown
In the liaiih manner i:i which 'ie preferred advice to the city council in
the settlement of the G. T. P. taxation question when here last fall.
Following thai negotiation were entered between the city council and
the company, which would indicate
that his efforts were not in vain.
No advantage Is likely to accrue
to those who attempt in this campaign to drag attacks upon the Mc-
Rride Government into the campaign.
Wheno local affairs are administered
In such a manner ;if to win the confidence of the people to those administering them to the extent that the
McBride Government have won the
esteem of the people or tl e province,
there will be no need if raising fals
issues to win an election.

MIST HAVE WIRELESS
An act making it compulsory under penalties of fines or imprisonment for owners of staemers to install all passenger steamers of over
400 tons, and all freighters of over
1,200 tons, with wireless telegraphic
apparatus has been passed by the
Otiawa government. This act will
have the effect of causing the equipment of many vessels in these waters
not yet (-quipped to have wireless
apparatus installed.
Among the vessels which will have
lo equip with wireless as a result nt
the new law, H is >nt -resting to note
s the first steamer on which wireless telegraphic apparatus was installed on I he North Pacific coast.
The Marconi apparatus was placed
on the Camosun many years ago, but.
there were no shore stations then,
and it was removed.
The Ordinance
The new law recently passed respecting wireless te'egraphy on ships
reads as follows
1. Every seagoing and coasting
passenger ship over four hundred
tons gross tonnage, registered in
Canada, and every seagoing and
coasting freight ship over twelve
hundred tons gross tonnage, registered in Canada, shall be equipped
with an apparatus for wireless teleg
raphy.
Z. Every owner of any such ship
who neglects to equip it with the
said apparatus shall he guilty of an
offence, punishable on summary conviction or on indictment, and be liable to a penalty of not less than one
hundred dollars and not exceeding
one thousand dollars, or to Imprisonment for a term not exceeding
twelve months, or to both fine and
imprisonment.
DREDGES  FOR  CO VST
A second la'ge dredge for work
on the British Columbia coast is <n
the way round the >• or d from Scotland, and should arri'.- at Victoria
about March next, judging from the
time made by the Fruhling, when she
came to the coast from Germany.
Two large steel tugs for work in
connection with the Dominion government dredges on the coast are
also to be built. One, fjr which tenders will shortly be called is to be
probably the largest and most powerful tug on the Pacific coast.
The dredge, which was recently
launched at Renfrew, Scotland, for
the Dominion government, left that
port on November 28 last, according to a telegram sent by the minister of marine and fihseries.
The new dredge is similar in
appearance to the Fruhling, with the
exception that a large elevator ladder extends through the centre of
the hull forward, and can be raised
to cut a channel straight ahead for
the vessel if required. The dredge
is very powerfully equipped and propelled by twin screws, giving her a
spjeed of about twelve knots. She
was built at the yards of Simons and
Co., Ltd., on the Clyde.
There is no hopper attachment to
the new dredge, and the material
which she handles will be carried
away in hopper barges by a tender.
She will be able to work in places
where neither the Fruhling or King
Edward would be of much use, and
will be able to handle about 1,000
yards of material an hour. Her first
work will be in the First Narrows
at Vancouver, where Bhe will clear
the channel, which at present is so
narrow as to be a menace to navigation. During flood tide the scows

TIMBER RESOURCES
British Columbia Has a Magnificent Supply Upon Which to
Draw.
Prof. Judson Clark Tells of the Opportunities Awaiting the Province in This Line
British Columbia is still distinctly
in the pioneering stage—the stage
when the disproprtion of natural resources to population intoxicates the
mind and holds out opportunities for
the capable and energetic which are
but dreams and memories in the
older provinces and states, writes
Prof. Judson Clark.
In no department of industry are
the opportunities for men with
brains and capital, or even with
brains without capital, greater than
in the line of forest products.
In the development of the lumber
industry in the neighboring State of
Washington, we see the promise of
the future of the industry in British
Columbia. In 1880 the value of the
product of the lumber industry of
Washington was $1,700,000; in 1890
$17,500,000; in 1900 $30,300,000;
in 1907 $100,000,000. The value of
our forest products this year will be
about $18,000,000, or equal to that
of Washington in 1890. In seventeen
years (1890-1907) Washington increased her lumber output sixfold
and rose from a very minor position
as °k lumber producing state to a
position at the top of the list as the
greatest lumber producing state in
the world, a position of distinction
likely to retain until displaced by
British Columbia about ten years
hence.
British Columbia's advance to a
pre-eminent position among the lumber and paper producing countries of
the world is assured by its forest resources and by the development of
its markets and transportation facilities. These same considerations also
assure a much more rapid development than was realized In the State
of Washington.
British Columbia's resources in
standing timber, taken in all three
aspects of quality, quantity and
price, defy competition. As In Washington, the Douglas fir Is the most
important tree on the southern portion of the coast. It frequently exceeds two hundred and fifty feet in
height and reaches fifteen feet in
diameter. In general, however, It
runs from three to six feet in diameter and cuts from one hundred to
two 'hundred lineal feet of logs. In
quality of wood it resembles the
southern yellow pine, but, of course,
gives much larger dimensions and a
much larger proportion of clear lumber.
Next to the fir in importance is the
giant arbOr vitae, or red cedar. It
reaches a height of about one hundred and seventy feet, and averages
three to six feet in diameter, though
occasionally much larger. Already
it supplies about seventy per cent of
the shingles consumed in Canada and
the United States.
The spruce, which replaces the
Douglas fir on the northern coast,
is at least equal to the best spruce
elsewhere for pulp purposes, and on
very much larger proportion of clear
lumber. The western hemlock and
the balsam are trees of great size
and beauty, and further excel their
eastern cousins, the former bdy an
entire absence of shake and brashi-
ness of grain, and the latter by its
uniform soundness.
The sixth and only other Important
tree of the coast forests is the cypress or yellow cedar. It has all the
good qualities of the cedars, including great durability and evenness of
texture, and possesses In addition a
degree of strength and elasticity not
to be found in any cedar. It is also
a very beautiful wood. Without
doubt It is the coming canoe and
boat builders' wood of the continent.

LIBEL ACTION
POLICE OFFICER UNDER
SERIOUS CHARGE
tContlnued from Page One)
what his relations with Regan were
while he sold liquor on Comox avenue, witness asked to be protected
in any evidence he gave.
Mr. Patmore assured him of this.
Witness said that he paid money
to those men, to Mr. Regan, for
selling yhiskey. He had no proof
of it as there were no receipts. He
paid $10 twice to Regan. Regan
said he would give him protection in
Belling liquor. Regan said that
when any new one, any spotter,
came on lie would let witness know.
Witness felt thai he was going to
get the double cross, however.    Re-
* As a result of the published *
* statements made by the Empire •
* relative to    Aid.    Mobley,    the *
* editor of that paper, S. M. New- *
* ton,  is to answer a charge  of *
* criminal libel.    The preliminary *
* hearing  Is  fixed  for  tomorrow *
* morning, when the question as  *
* to whether there is ground for *
* a trial will come up. *
*********
*   *   *   *   *
gau did not come for several nights
and he felt that he was going to get
into trouble and would have, had
he not cleared the place out.
It was to this that Regan referred
when he told him in the grill not to
sell any more liquor.
He had spoken to the chief about
carrying the gun, so that there would
be no trouble about it. The chief
bad told him that he would "put him
on the bum," and he did not want to
be In a position that he could make
trouble. He felt that when he told
the chief he was going to carry the
gun that it was all right.
Cross examined by the prosecution,
witness said he owned half the lot
on which the Alaska Restaurant
stood and had a lease of the building for 6 years. The restaurant was
run by another person. Witness ran
a soft drink bar.
Mr. Sylvester had rented the place.
Witness saw Mr. Clapp and told him
that if Mr. Sylvester wanted a barrel of beer or any liquor to let him
have it. He, witness, would go good
for It.
Jimmy Ferguson's name being introduced by Mr. Manson, the solicitor
for the prosecution, witness said that
if that was the man he thought he
was he could explain. This man came
to him and wanted him to sell liquor as there was lots of money in it.
Witness said that he would not take
the risk. Ferguson said that this
was all right; he knew the chief
well; he knew him when he was a
boy. He could get protection from
the chief. Later he came to witness and said he could not get that
protection as it was too well known
that he was a friend of the chief.
It was inside of the last six months
that he had given money to Regan
for protection.
Sam Calkins, who wa's not then on
the force, and he thought George
Dampfer told witness that if Macal-
len was kept in the house he would
be fined again as the police were
after him. He got Macallen to leave
the place. It was soon after this
that he paid the money to Regan.
Witness was asked if Mr. Patmore
and the chief of police had asked
him if Regan received money. It
was stated that they asked to see
the books. There was nothing to
show.
Describing what took place when
he paid the money to Regan, witness
said, "I knew when he came in that
1 had to go through with a $10 note."
This was according to arrangement
made with Regan before this time.
The first $10 was paid about a week
after the arrangement was made to
pay. It was after Macallen left.
Witness said that when he discussed
the matter of pay with Regan he said
he would pay what it was worth.
Regan said that $10 a week would
be plenty as business was not good.
The sergeant said there was a
chance for him to sell whiskey as
long as he did right. He said he
would protect him.
Witness thought he paid for two
weeks. When Regan did not. show
up he quit. He knew there was
something up. Regan said that he
had been sick. That was about the
time Constable Mansell went on the
force. There were several arrests
made at that time. Nine of them
he thought were from ijomox avenue.
Witness said th chief of p-lice
ne'er told him ib.it he hid sen' for
Carney and told the latter that he
must leave witness alone.
Witness said tnat he was afraid
these men might kill him, lie
thought It was just as good as a
permit to carr a gun to tell the chief
what he did.
The case was finally adjourned
for a few days at the request of the
prosecution, it. being Btated that it
was desired to recall Sergeant Regan who was prepared to deny the
statements of Zarelli.
""The police magistrate granted this,
although he said that he could not
well see the bearing on the case. He
was inclined to dismiss the case,
A request from the chief of police
was made that Mr. Sbaugbnessy
should be held to answer a charge
of keeping a common gaming house.
The request was granted and the
hearing set for Thursday.

THE   PROW*   EDPBaT   JOTJRKAL
NEW FLEET COMING
Canadian  Northern   Will  Have Three
Funnel Steamers on
Run,
Pi-incc Rupert to Be Centre of Great
Coasting  Trade This
Summer.
The Canadian Northern steamship
Duke of Connaught Is nearing completion at Middlesborough shipyard,
and will leave England about the beginning of April. She is due on the
coast about the end of May, ready to
enter service between Victoria, Seattle, Vancouver and Stewart, the terminus of the Portland Canal short
line at the head of the Portland canal. The Connaught will be followed a few weeks later by her sister
steamer, Duke of Clarence, which is
under construction at a British shipyard, and Is well under way. The
two vessels for the Canadian Northern are of the three-funnel type,
larger than the Princess Victoria of
the C. P. R. The plans of the
Princess Victoria and the Princess
Charlotte have been taken into consideration in planning the two new
liners for the coasting service of
British Columbia.
Little has been given out regarding
the construction of the two steamers,
the company not desiring publicity
pending the completion of the vessels. Recent arrivals from England
report tne construction proceeding on
the new liners, a shipmaster, who
recently arrived, bringing particulars
of the Duke of Connaught. It is understood that Captain Lindgren, who
brought out the steamer Princess Adelaide for the C. P. R. from the Clyde
builders, will leave for Middlesborough in February and will probably
bring her to Victoria.
Captain Frobisher, who will be the
superintendent of the new British
Columbia coasting fleet, made several voyages up and down the British Columbia coast during the past
summer, noting the conditions prevailing at the various ports of call
and he is now in England watching
the construction of the two liners.
He was a passenger on the Prince
George and the Prince Rupert on one
or two voyages, going to Stewart to
look   over   conditions  at  that  port.
The two liners will be of the most
modern type, thoroughly up to date
in every particular, and nothing will
be spared in finishing and furnishing
them. Both are well under way and
are expected to reach Victoria with
not more than a month intervening
between their arrivals.
The two Duke liners will connect
Victoria,   Vancouver,    Seattle    and
Prince Rupert with the new railroad.

SEA HEROES.
King Decorates Men Who Have Won
Medals for Bravery.
The King at Windsor Castle decorated two seamen with the Board
of Trade medal for acts of gallantry
In saving life at sea.
The men, says the Court Circular,
were Herbert Henry Balderson, of
the Sunderland Steamship Carham,
who received the silver medal, and
Richard James Hewitt, second hand
of the Grimsby steam-trawler Oldham, who was awarded the bronze
medal.
Balderson showed conspicuous
bravery when the Carham rescued
the crew of twenty-two from the
steamship Trevorlan in the Atlantic
In January. He left the Carham in
a small boat with some others, but
in the heavy gale they could not
approach the wreck. A line was
passed on board the Trevorlan and
the men were rescued by means of a
raft pulled to and fro.
Hewitt was one of a boat's crew
from the Oldham who at great risk,
rescued four of the crew of thet
trawler Gothic in the North sea last
January,
. o	
More than $18,000,000 worth of
sand and gravel was dug out for sale
In the United States last year, according to recent geological survey figures.

"Yes," said the specialist, aa he
stood at the bedside of the mlsei
millionaire, "I can cure you."
"But what will it cost?" canit>
feebly from the lips of the sick man.
The specialist made a swift mental
calculation. "Ninety-five dollars,''
was his answer.
"Can't you shade your figure a
little?" wailed the other. "The undertaker's bid is much less."

HINDU COMING.
Gama, the Hindue wrestler, who
was the sensation of England a eon-
pie of months ago, when he threw the
best men on the other side In short
order, may be expected in Montreal
in about two montm' time if i.e accepts and signs the contract which
Manager George Kennedy of the Canadian Athletic club, mailed his manager, B. G. Benjamin.
Gama is now at Lahore, India,
whither he has gone to defend his
national title of champion of India.
In all probability Gama will be the
greatest sensation that ever walked
on to a wrestling mat In America.
During his sojourn In London he was
rigorously avoided by the majority
of the best grapplers over there.
Hackenschmldt avoided him and Zy-
bszko also carefully avoided him after going through one match with the
Hindu.
ROWING CHAMPION.
Ernest Barry, the English champion, and W. Albany, of Lea Bridge,
will row for the English championship and £200 a side at the end of
April or early In May. This was
settled at the Spencer Arms, Putney,
in the presence of H. T. Blackstaffe
(on behalf of Barry) and Tom Sullivan (on behalf of Albany). Mr.
Blackstaffe gave his word on behalf
of Barry that the last-named should
not accept any other challenge before
rowing Albany. It was agreed that
that the match should be ratified at
the Spencer Arms on Monday, January 9, 1911, with a deposit of £50
a side. The date of the race will
then be mutually agreed upon.
"What's the trouble?" asked the
clerk, "isn't your room satisfactory?''
"Yes," answered the guest at the
big skyscraper hotel, "but I want
those clouds pushed away from my
windows."

"How is your garden getting
along?"
"Why do you ask that question?"
demanded the suburbanite suspiciously.
"Merely out of politeness."
"I see. I thought maybe I had
promised you some vegetables."

Vancouver.—At a meeting of the
license commissioners it was resolved
to interview the finance committee
of the city council and ask for the
appointment of an assistant license
inspector for Mr. MeMahon. Com-
mlssionder Edgett pointed out that
only recently a large amount had
been collected in fines against persons selling liquor without a license,
and this would more than cover the
extra outlay. The inspector's report
showed that during the past six
months the amount derived from
fines for the violation of the liquor
bylaws was  $1,050.
Inspector MeMahon also submitted
a report showing that as a result of
the higher license fees imposed at
the beginning of the year, an Increase
of $41,940 would be received for the
year, the total receipts now being
$96,130.

The result has been such a deluge of applications for machines
that we are simply astounded.
The demand comes from people of
all classes, all ages, all occupations.
The majority of inquiries hu
come from people of known financial
standing who were attracted by the
novelty of the proposition. An Impressive demonstration of the immense popularity of the Oliver Typewriter.

(Continued from Page One)
Ing for Mr. Manson because of the
good men that were back of him
but they were not in the city.
Dr. Hull
Dr. Hall was proud to suppport
Aid. Mobley. He was an independent candidate. Mr. Mobley did not
know whether he was a Liberal or a
Conservative. He did not believe in
party politics in municipal matters.
Hi- was altogether in favor of the
policy of the last council. He was
in favor or a white man's town
(laughter), They wanted all the
men they could get. He was not in
favor ni Chinamen, and Japs in the
city, He upheld the old council in
shutting these people out. The policy of the last council had been an
honest, clean one.
Aid. Pattullo
Aid. Pattullo turned his attention
towards Mr. Manson. He had not
in the last provincial election taken
any part because he did not wish
to be allied with any party here.
When he went to Victoria, as a delegate from the city, he had an opportunity to study Mr. Manson.
Mr. Manson had said that he must
have a delegation to back him up
In connection with the Tsimpsean
Power charter. After Mr. .Manson
got to Victoria he telegraphed that
there was no need of any one coming. The committee went, however.
A conference was held with the government at which Mr. Dean, one of
the shareholders of the Tsimpsean
Company, was present.
Mr. McBride catechised Mr. Dean
in such a way as to mislead them.
Later when Mr. Manson said that the
way seemed clear that they should
buy out the Tsimpsean Company, Mr.
McBride said, do you think we are
to buy out all the wild eats In British Columbia? Mr. Manson should
have backed his demands up.
Mr.  Manson  promised   to lay the
whole matter before the legislature.
When  he did not do It, Aid. Pattullo   said   he  got   Mr.   Manson   and
asked about it.
Mr. Manson said that he saw Mr.
McBride before the second reading
and he wanted to see the committee
the next day.
Frightened McBride
The third reading of the bill
passed in the evening. This was
done because the delegates from
Prince Rupert would demand to be j
heard before the bar of the house
had they not got what they wanted.
Mr. Manson would not flim-flam
him a second time. Had Mr. Man-
son demanded relief from the Premier In executive, because he realized the exigencies of party might
prevent his doing this on the floor
of the house, he woudl have supported  him.
What was wanted in this city was
rue who would stand by the rights
of the i!>. He had s-vd last year
that the G. T. P, and the Government Pad come to an agreement and

Referring to the Empire's charge
that he (Aid. Mobley) sold liquor to
blind pigs, Mr. Mobley said that tbe
statement was an absolute untruth
and the person who made it was a
malicious falsifier. He never sold
a drop of liquor during his residence
in British Columbia, and such a
statement as that could hurt no one
but the man making it.
Aid. Lynch
Aid. Lynch said he was glad to
support Mr. Currie, and Dr. Hall.
He also supported Aid. Mobley for
! mayor. The counsel! had been subjected to a lot of criticism by ignorant men.
In dealing with the question of
making this a white man's town,
Aid. Lynch said that while he did
not want Orientals to come to nullify the efforts of the Canadian Government to fill the country with men
from all parts of Europe before the
Orientals came in. He never advocated any other policy. The present
council had done more to make this a
white man's town than any other
body.
K.  II.  Mortimer
Ed.  H. Mortimer said that he was
a supporter of Aid. Mobley as mayor.
Mayor Stork
.Mayor Stork spoke in  high terms
of Mr.  Currie.    He was glad  to see
new blood introduced into the council  in   Mr.  Mortimer,  Dr.  Hall  and
Mr.   Emmerson.     He   felt  that. Aid.
Pattullo  was a good   man   to  elect
and Aid.  Mobley was the best man
available for mayor.
Dealing with .Mr. .Manson's candidacy, he stated that Mr. Manson as
government agent and member of the
district was virtually mayor of the
city.
Proceeding to criticise the Government in the matter of the townsite
arangements, the mayor said the city
had to give exemptions to secure
water front. The street ends did
not run to the waterfront'. They
were obliged by exemptions to buy
back what Mr. Manson and his colleagues should have reserved.
The coupncil stood or fell by what
had been done. To pursue a narrow
policy would result in the sun very
soon setting where the British flag
did not fly. He welcomed men from
any nation, no matter what his color
was. A white Prince Rupert meant
only the exclusion of Asiatics. If it
had not been for the Montenegrins
the work would not be as far advanced as it was. He had never refused work to residents of the city
who applied to him. Referring to
Mr. Alanson's announcement at the
last campaign that he would levy an
assessment of 10 mills, the mayor
said this with the G. T. P. assessment matter taking the turn it did,
this proposition would have been "all
shot to pieces."
Referring to the coming campaign
His Worship, in classic language,
stated—
"I have some dope to put forward
that will fairly make you sizzle."
After a few closing words by Aid.
Pattullo, and the expression of
thanks by Dr. Hall for the attendance
the meeting broke up.
