NEGOTIATIONS ARE ON
FOR A SETTLEMENT
City Council and D'Arcy Tate Hold Long Conference on
the Matter of G.T.P. Taxation—Amicable Discussions Take Place.
^
As a result of the visit of D'Arcy
Tate, solicitor of the G. T. P., to
the city and the getting together of
himself and the members of the city
council, negotiations looking to a
settlement of the vexed question of
the company's taxation are now in
progress. This is assuredly welcome
news to all citizens of Prince Rupert as there is a general desire that
the whole matter should be amicably
settled.
Mr. Tate left last evening for the
south and while no settlement has
been reached both sides to the controversy seem to be satisfied that
material progress has been made towards an agreement. The satisfactory feature of the whole business
is tbat the matter is in the negotiation stage.
From the time of Mr. Tate's arrival the council has been sitting
practically continuously, with Mr.
Tate present for the most part. After two days' work It was found that
an agreement could not be reached
which Mr. Tate had power to sanction. The city council, on the other
hand, could not agree to the proposition which Mr. Tate presented, and
the matter now stands with practically $15,000 difference between
the two propositions but the matter
is still open.
Mr. Tate left agreeing to take the
city s proposition up at an early
date with the principals. Pending
an answer from him as to the results of this conference nothing can
be done.
The members of the council weret
all present with the exception of Aid.
Barrow and after due consideration
the council agreed to a proposition,
which they would put before the people, endorsing It and asking that It
be ratified. This represented a fixed
taxation of $25,000 a year for ten
years to be paid by the company
with the grant to the city by the
company of parks, city hall site and
other properties, the company also
to begin work at once on its works
here, including the hotel, station,
roundhouse and floating docks.
Mr. Tate was prepared to conclude a settlement bad the city
agreed to take ?10,0nt) yearly in
taxation. The council did not feel
that  it  could  agree to that.
A memorandum representing the
council's side has been handed out
by Mayor Stork.    It is as follows:
1. Any proposed agreement must
be submitted to the electors for their
ratification before being finally
passed upon by the city council.
2. No exemption of taxation shall
be for a period in excess of ten
years.
3. In consideration of the following assets and privileges to be granted to the city by the railway company the city is to agree that the
general assessment of the railway
company (exclusive of the development company) Is to be fixed at
$2,000,000 for a period of ten years.
The net amount of taxes payable to
the city is not to exceed $25,000 for
any one year; provided, that In case
the railway company shall alienate
any of Its lands the same shall Immediately, become subject to the ordinary city assessment and rates, but
a deduction is to be made In the assessment of tlie railway company
proportionate to the relative value ot
the property so alienated to the balance of the property held by the railway company.
4. The assets and privileges to bo
granted to the city by the railway
company In consideration of reduction of taxes as aforesaid are:
Acropolis Hill.
A cemetery site.
Hays creek reservation for a park
site.
A City Hall site in Blk. 15, Sec. 1.

Park sites in Section 7 and Section 8.
Grant of easments over Grand

5. The railway company to continue to be liable to pay their proportionate share of the costs of local
improvements benefitting their property as provided for under the local
improvement sections of the Municipal Clauses Act and the local Improvement general bylaw and amendments thereto.
6. A portion of what is commonly known as the Grand Trunk Pacific
reserve situate northerly of Second
avenue aud lying between Block 3,
Section 1, and the easterly limit of
Second avenue projected northerly,
and being a portion excepted out of
a grant from the development company to the railway company, and
containing sixteten acres, more or
less, to remain the property of the
development company, and to be subject to all elty taxes as fully and
completly  as  private  property.
7. The railway company to commence immediately to erect a permanent station, round houses, engnie
works, a hotel and other works within the city limits, and to carry the
same to completion with all due
haste; and to continue and keep its
payroll within the city; also the company to commence active operations
upon the construction of a drydock
immediately the necessary arranget-
ments have been completed with the
Dominion  Government. _^<"'
In addition to this his worship
did not care to say anything. He
spoke in the highest terms of the
way in which Air. Tate had conducted the negotiations, and appeared
satisfied with results as far as they
had  proceeded.
Mr. Tate was seen by The Journal
before leaving the city. While he
did not care to say much, preferring
that the matter should have remained out of the press until the negotiations had proceeded further,
yet he spoke In no uncertain way
of the courteous way in which the
whole matter had been handled by
members of the city council. He
appeared, in fact, to be' delighted
with the way in which the subject
had been approached, and there was
no discordant note to the whole proceeding.
Mr. Tate says his company is desirous of seeing a settlement of this
question, as the interests of the com-
.pany are very closely bound up with
the city. They have no desire that
there shall be other than the most
perfect of harmony between the company and the city.
From the city's standpoint he sees
vast benefits which will follow a set-
tlemen. The new hotel, the permanent roundhouse, the new station and
Ihe dock will be commenced at once
If an agreement is reached. In addition lo this friends of Mr. Smithers
In the old land are prepared to go
ahead with permanent works in the
city as soon as this disturbing matter Is adjusted. In addition to the
actual works that are to be assured,
he points out that Mr. Hays and the
directors of the G T. I'., having such
a deep interest in the place, there
is no limit to the enterprises that
are likely to follow the creation of
a good feeling between the city and
the company.
Air. Tate said he desired to see the
negotiations carried on now until
a basis could be reached. If it was
impossible to reach a conclusion before the present council went out
of office he hoped tbe matter would
be lert in such shape that it could
be carried on by the succeeding
council whoever might compose it
without the necessity of opening the
whole matter up anew.

LICENSES GRANTED
Three More Hotels Get Right to Sell
in the City at Sitting
of Board.
Renewals Are All Laid Over Until the
Adjourned Silting of
Court.
The licence commissioners of the
city met as a licencing court on Wednesday morning with all the members present. Mayor Stork presided,
and with him were Aid. Smith and
Commissioner .Merryfield.
The minutes of the meeting held
on October 19, when on'y the mayor
and Commissioner .Merryfield were
present, were read by the secretary,
A. E. Woods.
Commissioner Alerryfield moved
that the minutes be laid over until
the next meeting.
Commissioner Smith seconded this
motion and the mayor declared the
motion carried.
Commissioner Smith wishes to
know if the old applications, those
first made, had not died.
His worship did not know about
this. It had been understood that
the advertising in the first instance
should suffice, as their applications
should, he thought, be regarded as
laid over from meeting to meeting.
A letter was read from the United
Brotherhood of Carpenters asking attention to a petition signed by nearly 200 names against granting a licence to A. J. Prudhomme. D. McLean, the secretary, in his letter,
wished the petition taken up, as the
licence had been granted by one commissioner.
The secretary of the Local Option
league wrote asking that no further
licences be granted until a census
had been taken to ascertain the population and determine whether any
further lieences couid be granted.
The petition accompanying the letter
was as follows:—
To the Licence Commissioners of the
Municipal Corporation of the City
of Prince Rupert.
Whereas, the census of the city
of Prince Rupert has never been
taken and, whereas, under the Municipal Clauses Act the number of
liquor licences to be granted by you
as a board is dependent upon the
population; and, whereas, there is
no certainly that the population of
the city warrants any further such
grants and, whereas, such licences,
if granted, must be illegal;
Now, therefore, we, the undersigned,, bona fide residents of the same
municipal corporation, IiumblJy pe-
tion the board that no further liquor licences be granted until the
census of the said city shall have
been taken and the population ascertained.

should receive consideration. He
suggested that the petition should
be considered at the time when the
renewal of licences came up. In the
meantime it should be held over. He
moved that the petition from the
Voters' league should be received and
filed.
New   Licences.
On motion of Commissioner Smith,
the appeals for new licences were
taken up.
The secretary read these, which
were from AI. Bondeaux, P. Black
and J. Y. Rochester.
Commissioner Alerryfield asked for
the applications for renewals.
The secretary announced an application from Corley & Burgess, which
was not in the form of an application
for renewal.
A. Carss appeared for Corley *
Burgess and explained that he, on
bel all' of his clients, had taken the
projiauton to re-advertise In order
that no mistakes might arise.
Applications to renew seven licences from January 15 were read
from O. Besner, G. Sweet, A. Prudhomme, J. E. Gilmore, Corley & Burgess, Al. Bondeaux, Peter Black, J. Y.
Rochester, Clarke Bros, and Sutherland & Maynard for wholesale lieences. A
J.  Y.  Rochester;       Jft
The flrst application take flp was
that of Mr. Rochester.
His worship suggested that the applications should be taken up ln the
ovlei in which the applications were
read. The application of Mr. Bondeaux was the first one. He pointed
out that for the number of lieences
already granted a population of 2,500
was necessary. He doubted whether
the population was above 3,500. It
certainly, he felt, was not 4,500. He
favored only one more licence.
Commissioner Smith said that as
no census had been taken, ne believed that there were 5,500 of 6,000
people here. He believed In going
ahead and granting the licences.
These men had gone ahead in good
faith and done their work.
Commissioner Alerryfield said he
thought 3,500 far too small a number.
The mayor said that he did not
say there were that number.
Commissioner Smith said that he
felt that there were 6,000.
A ballot being taken on the application of Mr. Rochester, which was
under consideration, the poll resulted in two votes for and one against.
The application was granted.
Additional Licences.
On motion of Commissioner
Smith, the application of Mr. Bondeaux was considered and after prov.
SCOTT ACT REJECTED
BY PRINCE RUPERT
By a Decisive Majority the City Declares Itself Against
Introduction of That System of Regulating Liquor
Trade—Will Remain Under Licence Instead.
The Canada Temperance Act,
otherwise known as the Scott Act,
was defeated by a majority of 103
on a vote of only 4 41. The vote was
an exceedingly small one, due to the
tact that the Dominion lists were
used which with a changing population like this in a new city gave
a comparatively small number of
citizens the right' to decide the question.
_, The voting was conducted in four
polling places and very little excitement prevailed throughout the day.
In a few circles on both sides there
was a decidedly different result expected, but the real workers on both
sides, it is safe to say, had the result figured out very closely, as there
was no surprise felt on the announcement of the final figures.
The count under the returning officer, J. Lome AlcLaren, was soon
completed. By booths the vote
stood:
Against.    For'.
1. Helgerson's      85 57
2. AlcClymont's       65 25
3. McRaes       73 54
4. Skating Rink       49 33
Total     272 169
Alajority against the Act   103
The defeat of the Act precludes
the submitting of it to a vote of
the people here for three years.
The evening before .the vote two
final rallys were held. The opponents of the Act occupied the Empress theatre and the supporters of
the Act the Aiajestic. A number of
speeches were delivered at. both
meetings, these being confined to the
respective opponents and supporters, and no opposition orators being Invited to appear at either of
the gatherings.
Testimonial to Mr. Blakemore.
Last evening before the Princet

waited upon by a deputation from

four business men of the city, none
of whom were engaged in the liquor
business.      The    presentation    was

Residents of Interor Are Petitioning
for Highway Connecting South.
The Royal Commission, which
made investigations into the timber
conditions in British Columbia, have
uiade a comprehensive report which
will undoubtedly have its etl'ect upon
fhe legislature to be passed. The
commission consisted of F. Jj Fulton,
K.C., A. C. Flumerl'elt and A. S.
Goodeve, M.P. The report now presented contains a vast amount of information which was collected by
this body of men and In concluding
there is a series of recommendations
as to proposed legislation. These
are as follows: —
That a complete cruise of all
Crown' grant timber lands should be
made by the government; that in
future the department of forests
should co-operate with the assessors;
and that an annual return should be
made of the valuation of all such
timber lands.
That as far as possible timber
leaseholds should be placed, upon renewal, upon a parity with licensed
timber lands; and that they should
be subject to the same forest regulation.
That the rates of rental and of
royalty upon special license should
at no time be fixed in advance for
more than one calendar year.
That the land act be amended so
as to empower the government to
grant the right of cutting sawmill
timber to pulp lessees; and that a
new form of license be provided for
tliis purpose In the manner described
by your commissioners.
That the same form of license as
that provided for pulp lessees be issued to holders of tanbark leases
who may desire to cut mill timber
upon their leaseholds.
That the present reserve upon unalienated timber land be continued
indefinitely; and that when special
circumstances necessitate the opening or any portion of tliis reserve
for immediate operations, licenses to
cut limber thereon should be put
up to public competition, upon a
stumpage basis.
That licenses to cut timber upon
fractional areas adjoining, or surrounding leased or licensed timber
lands should be put up to public competition and that a "fractional area"
be defined with great care ln the
wording of the "Land Act."
That the record of every cruise and
survey made by the government in
timbered areas should be accompanied by a report concerning the suitability of the land for agriculture;
that the power lo compel licensees to
cut and remove timber from good
laud be retained; and that at the
time of renewal the same provision
be Inserted In every timber lease.
That the issue of hand-loggers' licenses be discontinued.
That no divided interest in a special timber license be recognized.
That for the convenience of holders one day be fixed In each month
for the renewal of all licenses expiring in that month.
That royalty be collected upon all
merchantable timber not removed
from Crown lands In the course of
logging operations.
That operators be required to dispose of debris.
That the protection of forests from
fire be undertaken by the government through the agency of a permanent forest organization upon the
lines of the Northwest Mounted Police; and that It be compulsory fo;
all able-bodied citizens to assist In
this work when called upon.
That the cost of fire protection be
shared between the government and
stumpage holders In the manner provided by your commissioners.
That the provincial government
should co-operate with Ihe Dominion
railway commission; that a vigilant
patrol of all railway lines nnd Inspection of locomotives should be established; and that all railway construction should be supervised by
provincial forestry officials
That special licensees should be
Instructed to proceed with the survey
of their holdings; and that all such
surveys should be completed not
later than the 31st day of December,
1915.
That all operators should be required to make periodical returns
concerning their operations, to the
forestry officials In their district;
and that the collection of Information should be undertaken upon
much wider lines than hitherto.
That   the  government  should     at
A petition is being circulated In
the vicinity of Hazelton asking for
a first class highway to be constructed to connect that portion of the
province with the south. This is In
line with the proposition which members of the government at Victoria
have put forward as the probable
policy to be pursued. The petition is
addressed to Premier McBride, Hon.
Thomas Taylor, minister of public
works and Wm. Manson, M. P. P.
It is as follows:—
We, the undersigned, citizens of
British Columbia, residing in Hazelton and vicinity, believing that for
the proper settlement of this rich
portion of the province and the proper development of its varied resources a first class highway to the
southern part of the province is necessary and essential, hereby petition
the Provincial Government to construct such a highway.
We petition that the said highway
be constructed in the best and most
substantial manner, or sufficient
width, provided with the necessary
bridges and culverts, and free from
heavy grades. Further, we suggest
a route via Bulkley valley, Francois
lake and the Fraser river to some
point connecting with the road system of Southern Brtish Columbia.
TO PUSH XAVY
Plans for Canadian navy development are to be pushed says an Ottawa despatch. It Is calculated It will
take a year to establish a building
yard and begin construction. At I lie
end of three years the first ship will
be ready and the last of ten completed at the end of six years at a total
cost of about $10,000,000. The whole
order of six destroyers and four
Bristols will go to one firm. Six
British and two Canadian firms are
completing for the contract. One of
the Canadian firms is on the Pacific
coast, that of Buliln's, at Esquimalt.
The contract is hard sought for by
the British, because it means their
establishment in Canada with government aid in the form of a drydock
subsidy and an extra price for the
vessels.

An Englishman was speaking one
day to a Scotchman. The Scotchman
said, "It is not mere national pride
if I say what is matter of fact—
that my country is the finest in the
world!" "Well," said John Bull, "If
it, is the finest, il is nol the biggest.
I suppose you'll allow that England

Bull, "you'll acknowledge that

Sale  Made  of  Gronp  of  Properties
at n Good Figure—Plans
of Purchasers.
The sale of a group of four claims
near Robinson lake, north of Hazelton, for the sum of $50,000, of which
$5,000 was paid in cash, is reported
by the Omineca Herald, which shows
that the interest in mines in that
district still increases.
This group joins the one recently
sold for $35,000 and was located by
the same parties, George McBean
and Sam Long. The bond was made
out in the name of Dan McLeod, but
it is thought there are others interested with him.
The property lies about four and
a half miles almost due north of Hazelton, on one of the foot hills of
Nine Mile mountain, and was staked
last August. Since then considerable surface stripping has been done
by the locators and a number of
open cuts made. Three or four veins
have been opened, showing from one
to four feet of ore. Owing to the
distance between the showings and
tiie wash covering the surface it has
not yet been determined yet how
many veins are on the property.
This group has everything in its
favor to make mining easy and cheap.
The altitude is very little above that
of the town; it Is not far to the railway line; timber is plentiful on the
claims and it is only a short distance to the route likely to be adopted for a wagon road to Nine Mile
mountain.
The first assays of surface ore
showed values of about $150 from
specmens of clean galena. More or
less gray copper occurs in the ore,
together with high grade silver minerals. It is likely that development
work will lie carried on all winter.
SALE POSTPONED
The sale of the Phenix Theatre and
other property advertised in another
column of this issue is hereby postponed until Saturday, the 17th Inst.,
at the same place and hour.

DEFEAT OF SCOTT ACT.
The Scott Acl as a method of reg-
alating the liquor traffic In the city
has been defeated. The campaign
towards Hie dose became a rather
intense one and both sides threw
themselves heartily Into the fight,
The question was one upon which
a conscientious difference of opinion
could exist. Tiie electors, wisely we
think, decided to continue under the
licence law, which should be more
ayjctly    administered    here . if    we
fge public opinion aright.
flaring the campaign one of the
u peculiar features was the in-
sfcence with which a newspaper organ in the city persisted in straddling the fence on such an important question as this and yet had
the audacity to daily act as a censor
with respect to what private individuals should do in the matter.
For daring audacity this was certainly approaching the extreme
limit.
The campaign for the most part,
we believe, was conducted in a sane
way by both sides and there is no
■eed for recriminations now that all
is over. In the defeat of the Scott
Act, William Blakemore, editor of
The Week, of Victoria, who conducted the campaign during its closing
•toys, had a very important part. He
b an able platform speaker and by
8is moderation in opposition to the
Act as well as by the skill be showed
as a conductor of the campaign in a
general way, the credit for the result
Is in no small way due.
The putting through of the city
toylaw in workable shape and its
proper enforcement should result In
removing objections that have existed against the administration of
the liquor business here and with
that accomplished the campaign just
elosed will not be altogether in
*aiu.
NEGOTIATION  STAGE,
It is with gratification that The
Journal is able to announce that
there are negotiations on looking to
i settlement of the G. T. P. taxation question on a business basis.
it is true there is quite a gulf between the two parties, the city and
the G. T. P., but both sides understand each other much better now
and we have confidence enough In
the business ability of both sides to
:11c controversy to hope that a settlement will be readied.
We have always had faith that the
present council, not because it was
-.ii- particular body of men that compose it, but because it was a repre-
i- in,nive body, were able to negotiate a satisfactory agreement with
'.lie company. The Journal always
pleaded for the keeping of negotiations open  and still  pleads for it.
'this is no time fur recriminations.
We favor, as we always have, giving
the council a very free hand lo work

MILL AT HAELTON.
Aldermere  Lumber  Plant  Has  Been
.Moved  to Latter Location.
A syndicate of Hazelton business
men, of which E. E. Charleson, J. W.
Dr i» and Stephenson & Crum are
nioutifi's, has purchased the sawmill
owned by T. J. Thorp at Aldermeret
and will move it to Hazelton at once.
The mill is expected to be in operation inside of thirty days. It will
be placed a short distance from the
lake beyond Charleson's nouse,
about half a mile from the wagon
road, The mill has been in operation in Hie Bulkley valley for the
past four years, but It is understood
there is little available timber left
near Its present location, which is
the main reason for selling. The
new owners propose to add more machinery in the spring to enable them
to turn out all kinds of rough and
dressed  lumber.
NEWS OF THE PROVINCE
Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
FAVORS LARGE FAMILIES
Vancouvers.—In future the water
rates in this city will be no deterrent
to large families as they have been
iu the past. On the recommendation
ot Aid. Bryson, who is an admirer of
large families, the council decided at
a special meeting to make'the water
rates in the city the same for families
of any size. In the past the net rate
for families over five has been higher
than for families under that number.
.MAY BUT ISLAND.
Vancouver—In connection with
the case of Ludgate vs. the City of
Vancouver to determine the possession of Deadman's island, a letter directed by the board of park commissioners was read at a meeting of
the civic finance committee wherein
it was suggested that to save the expense of urther litigation and to arrive at an early settlement, the city
should acquire Ludgate's lease of the
island. Alderman Crowe favored this
step being taken, remarking that he
did not see any good of the case going to the privy council in England
and involving a large outlay for counsel and other expenses. The matter
will be further considered at the next
meeting. Costs have already amounted to a big sum and the city has had
to act rather expeditiously. A demand was met yesterday, when City
Solicitor Hay informed Comptroller
Baldwin that S2.P22 should be paid
Immediately, tliis being the amount
fof costs taxed against the city. The
| comptroller issued a cheque tor the
j amount and last night lie applied
that a further $1,469 should be paid
| to settle the balance of costs. .Mr.
Hay informed the committee it had
no alternative but to order the
i amounts to be paid for it was a
j proper legal demand. "If the city
did not pay these taxed costs," said
the solicitor, "a seizure of the city
hall could be made.'

Victoria—A    somewhat    unusual
feature of the provincial  timber office statistics for November is found
In  the circumstance that no operations in coal prospecting licences are
recorded  in  the  montfi     just    past.
There   were   during   November   283
timber licences issued for lands east,
of  the   Cascade   mountains,   producing  a   revenue  to   the   province   of
$33,40 "i;   west   of   the   ascades   the
total number of licences issued was ;
S16, and tbe acruing revenue $115,  |

added  $1,360 to the month's total; i
penalties, $62, and miscellaneous re- |

for November of revenue in this department of $150,440.70.

OIL BURNERS.
The steamers Prince Rupert and
Prince George are- to he converted
Into oil-burners. Officials of the
Grand Trunk Pacific line are now
engaged In making tests and investigations of the various kinds of
burners with a view to the selection
of the type to be used on the three
funnel liners. If the necessary arrangements can be made, the steamer Prince Rupert will be converted
when laid off for her overhauling In
preparation for the excursion trip
on which she is to leave on February
3 for Honolulu. Nothing has been
decided, though, with regard to the
style of burners and it may be that
the work of converting the steamers will not take place until the
spring. The proposal for the conversion of the two three tunneled
liners to oil burners has been under
consideration for some time and has
just, been sanctioned by the officials
of the G. T. P.
The steamer Princess May, the
first of the C. P. R. steamers to be
converted into an oil-burner, Is expected to be converted into an oil-
burner, is expected to be ready to
leave the B. C. Marine Railway company's yards this week. The work
of equipping the vessel to burn oil
Is well under way. As recently announced, the C. P. R. company has
decided to convert all its vessels to
oil-burners. It is stated that the
new steamers recently ordered to
duplicate the Princess Adelaide will
be constructed to burn oil fuel. The
other vessels will have their furnaces
altered as soon as opportunity
offers.
work will be of great benefit to the
city of Victoria, the addition of the
big force of workingmen adding
much to local prosperity.
SHEARWATER'S NEW CREW
H.M.S. Shearwater has been re-
commissioned at Esquimalt. Commander Vivian remains in command
of the sloop-of-war, and the other officers have left for home, together
with the crew of the warship. The
new officers and crew, five officers,
six warrant and petty officers and
62 men, arrived from Chatham dockyard.
The officers who have joined H.M.
S. Shearwater are Lieut. Newcombe,
first lieutenant; Lieut. English, navigating officer; Lieut. Wharton, Dr.
Nunn, surgeon; Mr. Poignard, paymaster; Gunnery Officer Wllmore, M.
V. O., and Chief Artificer R. E. Rea.
Mr. Wilmore, the gunner officer,
was in charge of the gun-carriage on
which the remains of the late King
Edward were borne to the grave at
Windsor, being in charge of the
squad of bluejackets who dragged
the gun-carriage from the Windsor
station. He received the Victorian
Order for this. He was at Esquimau many years ago on board H.M.
S. Shearwater.
NORTHWESTERN   FLOATED.
The Alaska Steamship company's
steamer Northwestern, which went
on the rocks at San Juan island
several days ago, has been sucess-
fully floated by the tug William Jolliffe and returned to Seattle, where
she will go into dry dock for repairs. Several unsuccessful attempts to float her had been made,
and from time to time it had been
feared' that the heavy winds, sufficient on several occasions to send
the salvage boats scurrying to shelter, would damage her beyond repair. To avoid straining the steel
hull and dislodging the woodwork
which had been built to guard the
vessel against the water, the vessel
had to lie handled very easily. At
tbe last attempt the after part of
the steamer, which was resting in
thirty feet of water, was weighed
wiib ballast to raise her bow slightly, and the experiment proved entirely successful. H is believed that
the vessel is not strained In any essential part, and that repairs can
easily be made.
CHARMER REPAIRED
The steamer Charmer has passed
from the Victoria-Vancouver route
with the Improvement of the C. P. R.
service after many years of reliable
and steady service. The steamer
Princess Royal is in her place and
will remain on the route until relieved by the new steamer Princess
Adelaide.
The Charmer was built by the
Union Iron Works of San Francisco
for the C. P. Navigation Company as
a connecting link between the just
completed C. P. railway and the
United States In 1887, being then
known as the Premier. Her name
was changed following the events
which resulted from the fatal collision with the steamer Willamette,
now known as the Montara, in 1892.
The Premier was off Marrowstone
Point when the bow of the big collier struck her on the port side,
knocking the pilot house out of position and crashing through the smoking room and cabin, instantly killing
three, J. Rankin, of Seattle; F. C.
Wynkoop and Johannes Mow of Tacoma, and William F. Richardson afterwards died from injuries. Fully
twenty othrs were injured. The Premier was cut down to the water's
edge. The Williamette was kept from
sinking by her bulkheads and with
her bow in the hole in the Premier's
side she pushed the vessel to Bush
point, and beached her in 24 feet of
water. The passengrs were taken to
Seattle.
Capt. John Irving was commodore
of the C. P. N. Co. and when he heard
of libel proceedings against the Premier and of Impending lawsuits being
framed by Seattle attorneys on behalf of victims' relatives he did some
quick salvage work. The Premier
was raised and hurried from United
States waters—and she was never
taken back. After extensive repairs
; she was placed on the Victoria-Vancouver route and continued in this
service until Sunday.

THE VALUE OF WOOD
Judgment Given by Judge Young Deciding Important
Point.
He
'iiHls for Plaintiff in the Case of
J. Ii. Sloan vs. Foley, Welch
& Stewart
Judge Young in the county court
has handed down a written judgment
in an interesting case affecting the
question of setting the value of wood
on I lie Skeena River. The case was
that of J. B. Sloan vs. Foley, Welch
& Stewart. Under the judgment the
defindant company will have to pay
$0 a cord for wood taken for use on
the steamers from piles belonging lo
the plaintiff.
The judgment is interesting as it
gives a judicial ruling upon what lias
been a knotty question from time to
time in practice.
^.ludge Young's judgment is as follies:—
"Action by the plaintiff to recover
the price of 02 cords of wood, the
property of the plaintiff, at $6 per
cord, situate on the banks of the
Skeena river, taken by the defendants and appropriated to their use.
There was no express bargain made
between the parties as to the price of
the wood. The wood was taken by
the defendants in pursuance of a custom existing on the river that those
operating steamers take wood where
ever they are in need of it irrespective of ownership, and afterwards
report such  taking to tbe owners.
"The Nortli Coast Commercial Co.
and one McDonald, were the owners
of the steamer Cralgflower, operat-j
ing on tiie Skeena river. The wood
in question was purchased by them
and placed at the points mentioned
for tiie use of this steamer. It cost
them ?3.23 and $3.50 per cord. The
Cralgflower was a smaller steamer
than others on the river and apparently required wood that was fine
cut. A portion of thi wood in question was line cut and it was all 'particularly dry.'
"This company became involved
and tbe plaintiff acquired all its assets including the steamer Cralgflower.
"The defendants operate a fleet of
steamers on this river. Wood is the
fuel used by all steamers.
"A fair average price to wood vendors for wood cut and delivered on
the banks of Ihe river is $3.50. In
some instances steamers have paid
$3.85 and $4 but these were not contract prices but rather 'pinch prices'
"At both landings where the wood
in question was piled the defendants
had large quantities of their own
wood. There is no evidence that
there was other wood at these points
other than I lie wood be onging to the
plaintiff ami defendants. However
the defendants took the plaintiff's
wood in preference to their own, in
Hie mi" case at Draper's landing, the
defi ndants Bay, by mistake, at Breck-
enridge's landing deliberately, Capt. j
Johnson says 'This wood was taken !
by the Conveyor (the defendants'!
steamer) on account of being finer
wood. We had wood there but it was
larger wood and not so dry. The
wood was marked 'Cralgflower.1 At
Drapers landing the defendants say
thai tiie man who measures their
wood. had. by mistake, placed the
defendants'  board on the plaintiff's
pile.
"Captain Johnson, who is Hie senior captain of Hie defendants' fleet ot
steamers and who bus them In charge
says: 'We did nol want, our wood
taken. We had large contracts to
fill nnd we put a penalty price on
our wood of $0 per cord. We knew
thai other campanies were short.'
They accordingly intimated lo the I
Hudson's Hay company steamer In-,
lander and Cralgflower thai they
would charge $0 per cord for wood ,
taken from their pile. In April, 1909,
tiny charged the Cralgflower $36
for six curds of wood. This was paid.
On August 20th, 1910, tbey charged
the Hudson's Hay company for 15 u
cords ut $6.00 per cord and Ihey noil-
Bed the Inlander company of the
same rate. These are all the companies operating on the river.
"Under these    circumstances    the
defendants now offer the plaintiff $3 ,
per cord for Ihe wood in question.
"The only evidence offered that the
plaint Iff was In the market to sell
this wood was a letter written by one
A. G. W. Anthony who signs himself as 'Accountant in charge' dated
the 24th August, 1909, and directed
to the defendants offering 100 cords
at Andlmaul, 50 cords at Drapers and
41 cords at Batemans at $3 per cord.
Anthony was not produced as a witness, and J. B. Sloan, who is and was
at the time manager for the plaintiff,
say Anthony had no authority to
make the  offer and  that no one In
authority was consulted by him and
the offer was made entirely on his
own responsibilty. In any event the
offer was not accepted or even replied to and the defendants at the
trial withdrew any claim that the
wood was purchased under contract.
The defendants' however, relied en
this as evidence that the plaintiff was
in the market to sel the wood at $3
per clord. There was some further
evidence of a conversation between
the representative of the plaintiff and
Mr. Frizzell, representative of the
steamer Inlander.     Frizzell  was not
i called   as  a   witness.     They   talked
about the 'going prce' but it  was noi
I ellcted  from  him   what  they   meant
' by that and the whole question was
discussed relative to an exchange of
the wood for stock in the company
owning and operating the Inlander,
"in determining the price to be
paid for tills wood, counsel for the
defendants has cited cases to show
that the true rule is the value of the
property at the market price at the
time of the conversation.    This rule
j lias some limitations, but admitting
it to be the true principle I lvive no
I hesitation in holding tha: in the present case and as between these parties, the value of the wood was $6
per cord, for the reason tha' if the
plaintiff at I he time of conversion,
had replenished liis wocl pIU
the adjoining wood plies of -.he defendants, which he had under the circumstances a perfect right to do, he
would have had to pay the defendants their own price of $6 per cord.
The defendants have no right to
swoop down on another steamer's
wood pile and take it, especially
when they have lots of their own
wood at the same point, without paying the same penalty that they themselves would have exacted, and at a
time when as Captain Johnson testi-

THE  PRINCE  RUPERT  JOURNAL
G.T.P. DOCK OPENED
Seattle   Headquarters   of   Company's
Shipping Best on the
Coast.
Captain  C.  H.   Nicholson  Expresses
Views With Respect,
to It,
Before a brilliant assemblage of
representative men from the state of
Washington, British Columbia and
other parts of Canada and the United
States, the magnificent Grand Trunk
Pacific dock, recently completed at
the foot of Madison street, and said
to be the largest and finest of its
kind In the world, was opened formally a few days ago. Invitations were
sent to President W. H. Taft, Earl
Grey, governor-general of Canada;
Lieutenant-Governor Hay, ot Washington; Lieutenant-Governor Paterson, of British Columbia; the mayors
of Vancouver, Seattle and Tacoma;
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, prime minister
off Canada; Premier McBride, of
British Columbia; J. M. Dickinson,
United States secretary of war; Chas.
Nagel, United States secretary of
commerce and labor; R. A. Bellinger,
United States secretary of the Interior; Rear Admiral Robeson, commandant of the Puget Sound navy
yard; Col. W. H. Miller, chief quartermaster United States army, and
more than 200 other representative
public men.
Tributes to the remarkable
growthof friendly sentiment between
the United States and Canada, the
wonderful upbuilding of Seattle, the
rapid development of shipping and
transportation facilities at this port
port and the splendid work done by
those who have erected the dock
erected the dock buildings, were features of the many brilliant speeches
at the luncheon which accompanied
the ceremony.
Over the luncheon given in the
waiting room of the new building,
Capt. Charles H. Nicholson, manager
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Steamship company, presided, and Prof.
Edmond S. Meaney, of the University
of Washington, acted as toastmaster.
Captain Nicholson said in part:—
"It gives me great pleasure at this
opening of the newest water terminal of the newest transcontinental
line to welcome so many distinguished
guests and representatives of the
transportation and important commercial, civic, shipping and other interests.
"To those engaged in other lines
of business, the advent of this new
line, I am sure, is welcome, offering
as it does a fast and modern means
of communication to the northwest
coast ports, and eventually through
the most, fertile sections of the great
Canadian northwest to populous
centres of Canada and eastern states,
ultimately reaching Europe and the
Orient.
"That the wonderful regions of
Puget sound, the British Columbia
and Alaska coasts, which excel the
combined beauties of the fjords of
! Norway, the mountains of Switzerland and oilier beauty spots to bet
found in Europe, will become the resort of thousands of tourists yearly
there is no doubt, and when our
plans are completed the magnificent
terminal we are opening today will
become the principal means of conveying them through the gateway of
Seattle.
"We have not come here to disorganize traffic, but to develop it, and
It will be a great pleasure to work
hand in hand with other lines in obtaining all possible aids to navigation from the governments of Canada and the United States. In this
respect. I would like to say that I
had the satisfaction of obtaining
from Sir Wilfrid Laurler, prime minister of Canada, on his recent trip
to Prince Rupert, a promise of fifteen llglils and buoys extending
from Victoria To  Prince Rupert, nnd
the   announcement   by   the   United
Slates government of Its intention to
estnhlsh more aids to navigation
along this coast. These will go far
toward preventing shipping disasters."
The length of the new dock Is
625 feet, the width of the wharf
129 feet, and the warehouse and
office space 440 feet by 104 feet. A
tower 106 feet high above the street
level has been built at the northwest seaward end. This tower, as
well as a roof garden, also at the
seaward end, will be used as an
observatory for shipping entering Elliott bay. A promenade has been
provided along the north side from
front to back.
Undoubtedly the feature of the interior is the grand waiting room in
which the luncheon was served. This
waiting room runs the whole width
of the building, is finished n natural
woods, and Is remindful of one of the
old cathedrals of England in the late
Tudor style.
A long array of handsome offices,
which are extremely well lighted, run
the whole length of the building on
both sides. The Inside of the front
facing Railroad avenue, which is four
stories high with stores on the
ground floor and offices above is also
finished In natural woods.
Long rows of cluster lamps form
the feature of the lighting arrangements which have been installed at
a cost of $10,000. The whole building is heated with steam from a
plant which cost $25,000 to insta'l.
Altogether 3,000,000 feet of lumber,
300 fenders and 140 brace piles were
used In the construction, which cost
nearly $300,000.
TO  DEVELOP COUNTRY.
Attorney-General Tells What Government Will Do ln This Direction.
Hon. W. Bowser, attorney-general of the province, speaking at the
smoking concert given by the Eburne
Conservative association, recently
said: In spite of the considerable
expenditure the Government has to
assume to try and keep pace with
the raptdlty of the development of
the province they have a surplus
over disbursements for the present
financial year of over two millions.
There is almost enough In the bank
to liquidate the whole of the debt of
British Columbia. The policy of the
land department will be to survey
the land accessible to the lines of
railways and great roads.
 o	
U.S. NAVAL PLANS
Announcement of the Naval Secretary
as to  Position of
Affairs.
He  Favors   Aeroplanes   for   Use  as
Scouts at Sea—Docking
Changes.
A shock such as has seldom been
felt in naval circles followed the
publication of the anuual report of
Secretary of the Navy Meyer, In
which he promised the abolition of
the navy yards at New Orleans, Pen-
sacola, San Juan, Port Royal, New
London, Sackett's Harbor, Culebra
and Cavite. By the elimination of
these seven yards Meyer said that
he removed an average annual expense of $1,672,675.. He declared
that during the last five years very
little useful work had been done in
any of the yards named.
One new navy yard is indefinitely
suggested for San Francisco bay. Following a discussion of the limitations
of the yards at Mare Island and
Bremerton, Meyer said:
"I concluded that it will be necessary to establish a docking and
repair station on San Francisco Bay
in some locality yet to be selected.
Such a repair station should include
one or more docks of the largest
size for taking our largest existing
and contemplated battleships."
On the other hand Meyer recom-
mendeds the further development of
the Bremerton yards and enlargement of the channel at Mare Island
"in view of the fact that a fleet at
some time after the opening of the
Panama canal may be based In the
Pacific ocean."
Discussing navy yards ln general,
the secretary said: "The United
States has over twice as many first
class navy yards at has Great Britain, with a navy at least double the
size of ours, and we have one more
navy yard of the second class than
Great Britain has. In other words,
we have in ail eleven flrst and second class navy yards In the United
States, wlille Croat Britain has but
six of Hie same kind. Germany has
three nnd France five."
Recommendation is made for an
appropriation of $25,000 with which
to conduct experiments covering tbe
use of the aeroplane for naval re-
connoissance. Commenting on the
flight made by Eugene Ely from the
deck of the scout cruiser Bellingham, Meyer said:
"This experiment and the advances
which have been made in aviation
seemed to demonstrate that the areo-
plane Is destined to perform somet
part in the naval warfare of the
future. A scout which is not strong
enough to pierce the enemy's line
can get as near as possible and then
send an aeroplane thirty or forty
miles, obtain valuable information
and then return to the Bcout. Even
if the aviator did not land on the
scout he could be brought on board
and deliver his Information. The
loss of an aeroplane would be of no
moment,    as    the   ship   may   easily
carry others.    The distance value of
service of this kind is easily seen.
"The department contemplates
further experiments along these
lines with the belief that it will be
necessary in the near future to equip
all scouts with one or more areo-
planes to Increase the distance at
which information Can be secured."
A saving of $5,000,000 in the estimates for the next fiscal year for
the navy department, indicated by
the secretary—the second year of
curtailment.
Notwithstanding this economy In
the past, the secretary declares there
has been an increase in the sea-
keeping ability of the fleet of 15
per cent.; an increase of 5 per cent,
in the average speed, of 20 per cent,
in the cruising speed and an increase of 16 per cent, in machinery
horse power. Despite this later
cruising, the cost of fuel used In the
navy has decreased $2,000,000. Singularly enough, this decrease Is more
apparent during the latter half of
last year than during the former,
notwithstanding It was in the second half that most of the cruising
occurred. The cost of maintenance
for each ship In commission has
shown a decrease over the year before of $20,000.
 o	
New Map of Province.
A new map of the province of
British Columbia has just been issued by the department of the interior, Ottawa, which will assist In
meeting the demand for complete
and and up-to-date information. On
a scale of 35 miles to the Inch, It
shows not only the whole provnce,
but portions of each of the following: Yukon and the North West
territories on the north, Alberta on
the east, the United States on the
south and Alaska on the west. All
information of a general nature
which the scale will admit of, is
shown, including railway stations
and all imporrtant points. The
boundaries of the Dominion railway
belt, and the Dominion land agencies
into which it is divided, are clearly
shown. All townshp and range lines
of the Dominion lands system of survey, with corresponding numbers,
are shown in this district. The Dominion electoral divisions throughout the province are also shown. Single copies of this map will be sent
free or cost on application to the
hief Geographer, department of the
interior.

NEW RACING RECORD
Bubbling Water in winning the
Sombrero handicap at Emeryville, established a new world's record for a
mile and 70 yards, running the distance in 1:42 1-5. The previous
mark of 1:42 2-5 was held by King's
Daughter, Granite, Ida May and Tony
Bonero, the first two over the Fort
Erie track and the latter two at
Latonia. Bubbling Water carried 121
pounds and after suffering interference beat Chester Krum by a head.
It was the grandest performance of
the season.

If the guarantees paid to aviators
are estimated at from $300,000 to
$500,000, and are added to the prize
money, the total would be from
$1,000,000 to $1,100,000, or from
$9,400 to $10,000 an aviator.
For many fliers these sums have
had to cover expenses, and if their
career is glorious and at times profitable, It is always costly. The purchase of a machine, lessons, the hiring of a shed, wages of at least two
mechanics, pieces for repairs, linen
and wood—which in aviation are excessively dear—and repairs run away
with large surzs.
Some aviators break their machines very often; others very seldom. Auburn probably holds a record in having never damaged his
apparatus.

AVIATION RETURNS
TOMMY   BURNS   RETIRES.
ten ] 	
The sporting world will learn with
deep regret that Tommy Burns, former heavyweight pugilist, has announced his permanent retirement
from the prize ring. Burns, who at
present is making an exhibition tour
through central Washington, says
that when he finishes his engagements at Cle Elum this week he will
never again enter the ring as a boxer. He has asked Hugh Mcintosh,
the Australian promoter, to substitute Jack Lester to fill his engagement with Sam Langford in London.
He gives his reason for retiring
the injury to his knee sustained in
Vancouver a few months ago while
playing lacrosse. In his letter
Burns says:
"I am through with the boxing
game as a pugilist. I have retired
and this is final. My knee will not
stand hard training any more.
"I received a cablegram from Mcintosh today. He wants me to box
Sam Langford in January, but I answered that my knee is still bad, and
that I will retire as a pugilist. I am
trying to arrange with Mcintosh to
fight Lester against Lang in February and Langford later. I am sure
Lester can beat Lang right now; of
course, I don't want Langford for
him just yet. In ten or twelve
months Langford will have a little
: more than lie can handle in Lester,
j at least that is what I think."
I Tommy has a record which he
j ought to be proud of, a record which
stands out alone for itself. He was
j born June 17, 1881, in Hanover,
Ont., and flrst entered the ring in
1900, and gradually worked himself
to the front as a pugilist. Today
he can be looked upon as one of the
best fighters In the world. Tommy
Is by no means a "has been" or
one of the old war horses, as he is
still a comparatively young man, and
if it was not for his knee no doubt
we should have heard great things
of him.
question of additional works necessary would receive all due consider-
eratlon by himself and his colleagues
in the cabinet.
Mr. Pugsley said that, including
dredging, the cost of the work on
the north arm would be approximately $1,250,000. He told the deputation that the department had already
decided to go ahead with the dredging of the north arm and that before they got back to the coast the
dredge King Edward, which has completed its work at Nanaimo, would
have commenced operations in the
north arm. Work would be continued until the department's fifteen-
foot channel had been provided.

Marvelous Dividend Achievements
The Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York paid in dividends
In 1909 the sum of $11,005,914.96,
an amount without precedent in tills
country or In any other. The company has also apportioned for payment of dividends in 1910 the enormous sum of $12,401,752.11, an
amount greater by nearly two millions than any other company has
ever paid in a single year. Indeed,
of 157 companies doing business in
the United States, only 12, including

the sum apportioned by The Mutual
