WHEAT WILL POUR
THROUGH THIS PORT
The Increased Production of the Prairies Will
Force Heavy Shipments By Way of the
Pacific In Order to Get Rid of Crops
In Reasonable Time-Lessons
Taken From This Years'
Handling of Wheat
Harvest at Winnipeg.
While it is assured- that this port
will be the greatest fish centre on
the Pacific Coast as soon as the
Grand Trunk Pacific is linked up
with it, there is an assurance that
this line of traffic will be supplemented by the inpouring of the
wheat of the prairies, in this way
there will be a vast trade .passing
over the rails each way. Tralnloads
of grain will be hauled here over
the easy grades to be shipped by
the Panama Canal and by other
routes to the markets of the world.
In return tralnloads of fish in every
form will be hauled back from here
to the prairies to aid in feeding tlie
vast population that is fining that
part of the Dominion up. As a result of these two factors to trade,
the harvest of the seas that lie off
here and the harvest of the prairies
that will be sent here to find an
outlet, there is a tremendous business assured for tbe Grand Trunk
Pacific in the line of freights.
It is estimated that Edmonton
this year alone could have been the
centre for 'the shipping by rail to
water here for 50,000,000 bushels
of grain. Winnipeg is being overstocked with grain this year, and it
seems altogether unlikely that there
will not be a serious congestion
there. The crop this year surpasses
all previous records. Winnipeg now
mounts to the distinction of being
the greatest grain centre in the
world. Twelve hundred or thirteen
hundred cars pass inspection in that
city in a day. At the rate of 1,000
bushels to the car, ighich is about
the average, grain is moving through
Winnipeg at the rate of a million
and a quarter bushels per day. Crop
estimates indicate that the total
wheat export for this year is something slightly In excess of two hundred million bushels. Were the present rate maintained, were the lakes
open all year round, and were the
shipments of wheat only, it would
take until next April to get the present wheat crop out of the country.
When it is taken into consideration
that the production of oats and barley is greater than the total production of wheat, and that the lakes
close about the middle of December,
allowing only two months of shipment at the present rate, it is easily
apparent that all the grain can
scarcely be shipped much before the
crop of 1913 is ready. Made up into
a solid train, the wheat shipment
out of Winnipeg yesterday would
constitute a string of cars ten miles
long. Two weeks of it would fill
all the elevators in Fort William
and Porf Arthur and a month of it
would fill the elevators of Dulutli as
well.
But the production of the Canadian prairies is only beginning. The
situation is changing each year.
Winnipeg will have to divide with
other prairie cities the honor of being the gathering point for the
grain. Edmonton, it would appear,
will become one of the greatest centres from which wheat will be shipped. Tlie natural outlet for the
Edmonton wheat will be Prince Rupert by way of the Grand Trunk Pacific.
'ibis will not mean that Winnipeg will be cut out of Its grain supplies. It means that of necessity
the grain must in part come west
to allow it to get out of the country  in  reasonable time.
Saskatchewan is now uie greatest
wheat province and tlie centre meridian of wheat production is moving constantly westward. It has already passed the Manitoba line and
the indications are that ten years
from now it will have passed Saskatoon aim .tegina. Central, Eastern
and Southern Alberta are, potentially, as good wheat producing countries as anything to be found in
either of the other two prairie provinces. The Peace River country has
never yet shipped a bushel of wheat,
except toward  the Arctic zone.
It is more than probable that the
200,000,000 bushels that are now-
being shipped by way of Winnipeg
will in a few years be supplemented
by another 200,000,000 bushels-
shipped the other way by Edmonton
and Prince Rupert. With a port
open the year round here the amount
of grain that can be handled over
the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
is enormous.
This will mean elevators in this
port and of necessity flour mills,
where the raw material may in part
be converted Into flour to meet tho
demands of the world.
HATCHERIES FULL
Large  Number  of Sockeye Eggs Have
Been Put Up This
Season.
Ii'i-iisc-r River  Hutching Grounds,  as
Well  as     North     Rivers,     Arc
Plentifully Supplied.
As a result of the increased pre-
cputlons exerted this summer, the
salmon hatcheries of both Dominion and provincial fisheries departments are exceptionally well stocked
for an off year. At the Pemberton
Lake hatchery, spawning operations
ceased on September 2, and It is reported by Mr. F. H. Cunningham,
chief inspector of Dominion Fisheries that 25,000,000 sockeye eggs
have been secured. This large collection is in part due to the arrangements made between the fisheries
and Indian departments under
which a special officer, stationed at
Pemberton, supervised the catching
of parent fish on their way to
spawn. The Indians catch and put up
a big supply for winter use but in
this case the fish were handed over
to the Indians after the eggs had
been  taken   from  them.
The hatchery at Lakelse Lake on
the Skeena River, as previously announced in these columns, is filled
lo capacity. The hatcheries at Ba-
blne Lake and Stuart Lake are
both full. There are over 15,000,000
sockeye eggs in these two hatcheries alone. >
Operations are still in progress
for supplying the big hatcheries at
Harrison Lake, but operations have
not yet begun at Cowichan hatchery, which is more for sporting fish.
The provincial hatcheries are also
unusually well filled for an off
year, and Mr. Babcock, the Inspector, agrees that more sockeye have
reached their natural spawning
grounds than in any other off year
for ten years whien is another gratifying feature. The indications are
that there will be a large run in
four years' time, which is when the
salmon hatched from this year's supply return to tho spawning grounds.

LUMBER FOR SMELTER.
The barge North Bend is discharging at the brand Trunk
Pacific wharf a quantity of lumber for the Lester David Co.
before proceeding to Granby
with a quantity of building-material for the Granby smelter.
The lumber is from the Lester
David company's mills at Ocean
Falls which is doing so much
to meet the demands of this
part of the province in the matter of building material.
Deaf to tbe entreaties of her husband and mother and friends living
in Edmonton, declining to be cajoled
or bribed to stay in Canada while
her husband is fighting for the
honor of Greece, Mrs. Violet Leader,
18-year-old wife of Peter Leader, of
the barber shop in the .lasper house,
entrained with her husband for Calgary and will go to the front as a
nurse, says the Edmonton Capital of
a few days ago.
Less than a fortnight ago the
Greek girl came to the city from
Winnipeg to be married. She knew
then that within a few days her husband might receive a call to arms,
and she had resolved that if the opportunity should occur she would
go with him. She was anxious to he
on the firing line, to see her countrymen bearing the standard of
Greece against the hated Mussel-
men. Two or three days ago Pete announced that he was going to Greece
with the other reservists resident
in Edmonton. She had not revealed
her ambition to him at tha* time,
and he was taken aback when she
declared that she would not stay in
Canada.
He wired to her mother in Winnipeg, and made arrangements for
his wife to be taken back to the
gateway city during the continuance'
of the war. All arrangements had
been made when the girl wife again
flatly refused to be separated from
her husband. She declared that If
he did not take her she would go
lo  New  York  of  her   own    accord

PROVINCE CARRIES
OFF HIGHEST PRIZE
Cup Valued at $400 Captured By B.C. for
Fruit Display at the Dry Farming Congress
Being Held In Lethbridge-Excellent
Showing Made By the Department of Agriculture In
Competition With all
Other Parts of
the West.
Lethbridge, Oct. 23.—British Columbia at tbe dry farming congress
-.old here won the prize for the best
display of boxed fruits. The cup that
goes with it it is valued at $4U0.
The officials of the department of
agriculture had prepared an exhibit
of the fruits and grains of the
Province of British Columbia which
it was believed would he the equal,
if not the superior as it proved to
be, of any similar exhibit no matter
whence it came.
The fruit exhibit whicli was
shown at New Westminster, and
which  gained  the  chief  honors,  was
transferred to lethbridge, with
changes where the change of the
fruit made them necessary, and the
province also sent a display of
vegetables.
The representation of the province at the congress was in the
hands of W. J. lirandrith, of the
department of agriculture, and tlie
exhibit gained high praise from
those who saw it. The exhibit will
be a good advertisement for British
Columbia, as the congress is attended by delegates from practically
every one of tlie Central and Western  States.
Mexico City, Oct. 23.—Tlie cap-1
ture of Vera Cruz by the federals
has been confirmed in al! quarters.
Madero, the president, has sent a
message to all the governors of the
states informing them that Vera
Cruz Is in the hands of loyal troopsi
Geneiat Diar. has been taken piis-
oner. The general opinion Is that
the governmenl success will strengthen the administration in the country.
Diaz, according to n story current,
was greatly disappointed in the progress of the revolution whicli he
headed because of the .lack of arms
and ammunition.
He hoped, it is declared, to equip
his volunteers from a shipment intended to be unloaded from a steamship at Vera Cruz for tlie government. When that port fell into Diaz'
hands federal officials communicated
with tlie vessel by wireless and ordered it to make full speed for Tam-
pico.

.Mr. L. T. Burwash, formerly government mining engineer, of Dawson, Y. T., reports that the gold
quartz strike on the Eldorado Dome
Quartz Mining Company's claims is
creating a great stir among tlie old-
timers. It has been the opinion of
many visiting geologists and mining
men that the great placer finds in
Eldorado and Bonanza have come
from adjacent quartz ledges.
Mr. Burwash has been in the Yukon fifteen years, and has always
maintained that the source of the
p'acer gold would he found in the

A Mercurial People.
It is impossible to estimate what
effect the attempted assassination of
Col. Roosevelt may have on the result of the presidential elections,
says tlie Province. The Americans
are a mercurial people, and a sympathetic wave may completely
change the political situation. Questions of tariff, trusts and foreign
policy are liable to be entirely submerged when a sensational Incident
obliterates the issues of the campaign.
A Canadian Meet.
Tho tiling Britain wants—and
she wants it mure than she needs
it—is for Canada to lay hold and
take a band in the building of floating threats thai will help to keep
the world In order. What Canada
need do is to Increase the moral
hazard of any nation tempted to
show hostility to the British Empire. The best way to do this, is, we
think, to begin now the gradual production of a fleet of our own—
Which will grow to be not only a
navy in our own waters, but a fleet
in tbe navy of the Empire in the waters of tlie world.—Toronto Star.

holder. If there is not a deep personal interest taken in tliis matter
there are going to be a lot of persons who are entitled lo vote who
will fail to get it at tlie next elec-
tion.
ii is ii duty that every citizen
owes io the place to see that he is

RE VOTERS' LIST.
I am instructed by the City Council to publish the following notice
with regard to voting at tbe next
Municipal election:
The persons who will he inserted
on  the  voters'  lists  are  as  follows:
1. Owners of real estate. This
means any person who has a deed of
land registered in the Land Registry
Office or an agreement for purchase
of land registered in the Registry
Office.
Many persons have land under
agreement from the Grand Trunk or
the Governmenl whose title is not
registered in the Land Registry Of-
flce, ami their right to vote is doubtful. Therefore, voters so situated are
advised if possible to register either
as Householder or Licence holder.
2. Any  person holding a trade II-
■-■iii-e may vote, but before doing so,
he must, in October, make a declaration showing his right to vote in
Form I. These forms can be obtained
In- ciiy Clerk's office. Tlie declaration must lie filed with Ihe City
Clerk within forty-eight hours after
it is made.
::. Any householder can vote. A
householder means a person who has
resided in Prince Rupert from tlie
1st of .lannary, 1912, and who oc-
cuples a dwelling, tenement, hotel or
boarding house, or any portion of a
dwelling bouse, tenement, hotel or
boarding house, lie must also pay
all rates, taxes or assessments which
are not chargeable on land, and
which rates, taxes and assessments
so paid amount to not less than
$2.00. Water rates and dog licences
do. not count. Practically tbe only tax
thai can be paid is the road tax,
$2.00, and any person who being a

During the last six months Immigrants have been coming Into Canada al the average rale of 1500 a

unit of liu.siin. That is to say,
members of parliament after the
next redistribution will represent
that number of people, says the
News-Advertiser, Thus we have a
constituency of new citizens arriving in Canada every twenty days.

SPORTS
THE RING.
A new claimant has appeared for
Joe Bayley's title as the Canadian
lightweight champion. Kid Alberts,
who fought Packy McFarland to a
ten-round draw in Cleveland recently, is the individual who has taken
the honors now carried by Victoria's
hard-hitting lightweight. Just how
A'berts can get up enough nerve to
come along and openly claim a title
for whicli he lias battled several
times and lost is hard to understand. Albeils was one of the fighters that Tommy Ryan staged in Toronto last winter, before the lid was
dropped upon fistic arguments in
the Queen City. He won a couple of
battles, hut against, Billy Allen, for
the Canadian title and Flanagan
belt, he was clearly outpointed by
the clever Ottawa boxer,
Alberts lias been fighting in
Cleveland and Windsor for the past
year, but has never given much
promise. He is a hard hitter, but his
boxing is a drawback which absolutely nullifies his championship
aspirations. That Bayley could beat
him handily is a foregone conclus-
sion, and that such a second rater
should pose as Canadian champion
is but an instance of what steps the
unscrupulous eastern fight managers
will take to secure a few matches
for their proteges. Alberts is nothing more than a fair trial horse
for the good hoys, but the claim
that bis manager has put in for the
Canadian lightweight championship
is of the thinnest variety, with absolutely  no  foundation.
AT CALGARY.
Over two hundred saw Dick Hyland work oul the other day at Calgary, and first betting for the
Thanksgiving bout, took place, tho
llyland hackers giving odds of five
to four. Uyland was barely shaded
by Brown, though tlie Minnosotan
weighed 140 ringside, six or seven
pounds  more than  llyland.
Bayley has lots of friends here,
and tlie opinion is general that the
bout will) be very even. Better than
the Brown-Hyland affair, and to
date tho best bout ever staged in
Western Canada. Bayley's training
quarters have been arranged at the
Central Fireball. The ticket sale has
opened and house will be packed.
Carpenters have started roofing I bo

installed.

THE LONDON TINES
Interesting Facts Concerning the History
of the Great English
Paper.
The Connection of the Walter Family  With   the Journal  that   Has
Earned Such a high Place.
A few days ago the London Times
celebrated its forty-thousandth Issue
by a special edition dealing particularly with the printing and mechanical improvements of the period covered by the lifetime of this great
newspaper, says the Mail and Empire. It is really a historical number, and will be treasured in every
library whose owner takes the slightest interest in printing. There are
special articles by authorities on the
various branches of the arts that are
called upon to contribute to the issue of a great newspaper, and
among the many admirable contributions it is difficult to select the
one of most interest to the general
public. Choice is made, however, of
the sketch of John Walter, the man
who founded the London Times, and
thus established one of the greatest
political and social influences of the
nineteenth century. Walter died before he knew what the Times was'
to become. Its real maker in a literary sense was his second son, John,
but of the first John we learn
enough to know that his brilliant
son must have inherited some of
his most prominent traits, and in
studying the father we learn about,
the son, who was one of the greatest editors, if not the greatest, produced in Hie earlier decades of modern journalism.
Nearly every founder of a newspaper or magazine is a literary man
who desires to control a vehicle for
the expression of his own ideas, or a
politician who seeks through the
press to influence public opinion
From neither of these sources was
Hie Times derived. It came as a result of bankruptcy proceedings
brought on by the American war of
independence, and produced as a
means to an end. John Walter the
First had no idea of founding
great newspaper. He was interested
in a particular process of printing,
and buffeted on every hand, he
sought to prove by applying his method to a daily newspaper that
had advantages over tlie methods
then In use. Nor was he a printer,
even, although it became necessary
for him to study the craft late in
life, and he did, in fact, become
an authority, though to this day it
is a question whether the method he
advocated had any particular advantages over the old style which lie
so vigorously assailed.
Walter was a coal buyer on a
large scale, who branched out into
the underwriting business, and suffered great losses through the war
Willi the United States. Thus It has
been said that had it not been for
the American revolution there would
have been no Times. Lord North
was a friend of Walter, and had he
not been retired from office the
probability is that he would have
given his friend a civil service position, and tiie world would have
never seen the Daily Universal Register, as the Times was first called.
Falling upon evil days, however,
Walter became acquainted with a
printer named Johnson, who had
discovered or adapted a new system of printing. This he called
logograi by. Briefly described it
consisted of a system whereby the
letters of the type were cast in complete wordn or syllables instead of
separately. Johnson argued that a
typesetter who wanted to set up the
word "altogether" would have to
stake ten trips to his case under the
process then in use, there being ten
letters in tlie word, whereas under
his system lie would pick up Ihe
complete word already cast, and
thus save nine-tenths of the time.
On the whole he figured that his
process would be carried on in one
sixth of the time required by the
old  method.
The chief objection to the process
was that as there are only 26  let
tors and ten figures iu the alphabet,
tin-  printers  who  used  the old  system could have all their type in com
paratively  few   cases  before    them
whereas  there   are     thousands     of
words;   and   opponents   of  the   Idea
said  that the time a printer would
save by finding a word already set
up   for  him   would   be lost  in  hunt
ing lor the word.  After a good deal
of labor Johnson  had  reduced    the
90 000 words in  the English langu
age to some 5,000 by eliminating ob
Bolete  and   unusual   words,  cud     by
further  disintegrating    the    words
into syllables, roots, prefixes and
terminations Walter was able to arrange all his type in four cases each
six and a half feet by four and a
half. He soon bought out Johnson's
interest in the business, and sought
to interest influential men in his
venture. Among others he secured
the approbation of Benjamin Franklin, himself a practical printer, and
a number of other prominent men.
Walter realized that if he could get
the patronage of the king all would
be well.
This he attempted to do, but he
failed, and it appears that rival
printers had something to do with
the cold reception he obtained from
George. It is also hinted that the
fact that he numbered Franklin as
one of his patrons had something to
do with his failure. At any rate be
furled, and in the face of the combined opposition from tho leading
printers of the day Walter sought
to demonstrate the value of his method by applying it to the printing
of a daily newspaper. Thus was
founded the Daily Universal Register, underneath whose title were
the words "Printed logographically."
The first issue was on January 1,
1785, but In throe years the cumbrous title was abandoned, and the
matchless mono-syllabic name of
The Times substituted. In a few
years more reference to the method
of printing was abandoned, and presently it. was the newspaper rather
than the system that held general
attention. Some eighty years later
the logographic process was revived, but oddly enough it was opposed nowhere more stoutly than in
the Times, unmindful of its own
origin. The modern invention of the
linotype method of printing has
made logography obsolete, whatever
its merits may once have been, and
only students of printing are aware
that such a method was at one time
in use.
SHOT HIS FIRST DEER,
Principal    Hunter    of    the    Public
School   Staff  Bagged   One on
Mount .Morse.
On Saturday morning last Mr.
Hunter, head master of the public
school, formed one of a party of
four who went over on Morse Mountain to do some deer stalking. It
was a perfect day for hunting as
the day broke with a clear sky after the heavy night's frost. The
party of four made the ascent of
tho mountain at four different
points, the' snow-line on Mount
.dorse being their objective, should
no deer be met lower down.
It was left to Mr. Hunter to be
the lucky one of the party. About
noon, and when 400 yards from the
top of the mountain, lie came to a
small glade, the entrance to which
showed fresh marks of deer. He
had not long to wait until a fine
stag entered this glade from the
farther end, and about 40 yards
distant. He raised his rifle, fired,
and the stag tottered, ran a short
distance and fell.
This was Mr. Hunter's first at-
lompt at deer stalking, and, needless to say, he is very pleased with
his success.
The work of carrying the stag
down the mountain was a laborious
undertaking, but by following the
bed of the creek Mr. Hunter succeeded In reaching the base at five
o'clock. The outing was an agreeable
one, and the same party hope to
have even a more successful day
before the season closes.

ERRORS IN   BASEBALL.
There are two kinds of errors in
baseball, the mental and the mechanical, says Sanborn In the Chicago Tribune. The former often
passes unobserved by the average
spectator or the blame is put upon
the wrong man. The latter never Is
overlooked by the public. Among
players and managers the mechanical error passes unrebukjod, while
the mental blunder, If it results advantageously to the team, always
brings at least mild censure for tlie
offender if the manager is wise.
The player who thinks out a play
but makes a mechanical error in attempting to execute it, usually
draws a compliment from his boss
and team mates. He is comforted
with "That was good stuff and
tough luck." The player who awry
without having it cost his team anything is sure to be told all about
it when he gets his back to tlie
bench and is informed as to the
thickness of the bone under his
scalp which increases in thickness as
each player takes his turn in the
serio-comic kidding match—serious
because an effort Is being made to
impress the mistake on tlie player's
mind so thoroughly that he will not
make  it  again   with   perhaps  dlsas-

trous results, comic because the
criticism usuaiiy is tempered with
jocose language and  tone.
In one game recently there occurred four plays, any one of which
was responsible for the defeat of
the Chicago White Sox. Two of them
were mechanical and two were mental. Easterly and Kuhn, who shared
the catching, pulled the mechanical
misplays, and Collins, at first, made
tne mental slips, although Kuhn's
error terminated the game by letting in the winning run in the
tenth inning and Easter y lost a
chance would have prevented any
tenth inning at all, they were held
practically blameless for the defeat,
which was laid upon the shoulders
of John Collins by both manager
and teammates, but not by the public.
A Scotchman who posed as a prohibitionist was surprised by a friend
drinking a bottle of wine. "I thought
you were a teetotaller," said the
friend. And the other retorted: "I
am, but not a bigoted one."

GRANBY BAY
The Coming Smelter City of the North
Truly, the future of Granby Bay is bright. The absolute perma-
nancy is one of the most gratifying features—as the supply of copper
ores in Northern BritiBh Columbia is practically inexhaustible.
m
Only a few choice lots fere being offered for sale in the Town of
Granby Bay, and there Is not much doubt that they will be sold quickly.
Grasp the fact that ore can be produced at Granby Bay much
cheaper than in places where large profits are now being made in mining
and smelting. Then you can appreciate what an opportunity confronts
you in the chance to buy property in such a place at firBt prices. There
Is no earthly reason why Granby Bay will not be the big important
mining town of British Columbia—and that means a rapid raise in property values.
Property is cheap in Granby Bay now. Get our prices and you will
get a lot. For prices, terms and further information, address
