WILL GO TO G.T.P.
City Council Decides to Forward Proposition of Board of Trade to
Nontreal.
After Consideration This is Kelt hi
be the Wisest Course to
f. Follow
Last evening the city council took
up the question of the opening of
negotiations with the G. T. P. in the
matter of the assessment. It was
introduced by the presentation of the
letter of the Board of Trade committee which was laid before ilie
council informally on Saturday afternoon. As a result of the discussion
which followed the formal consideration of the letter it was decided to
forward the letter of the Board of
Trade to the G. T. P. officials for the
consideration of them. Upon this,
It Is felt a basis of settlement may
be arranged. The council did not
consider it advisable to endorse the
propostioin as set forth in the schedule of the Board of Trade. The council did not disapprove of It either. It
was felt that possibly some negotiations would be necessary with the
G. T. P. later In the matter and it
would be unwise to prejudice the
city's case as they interpreted it at
this  time.
The clerk read the communication
from the Board of Trade as presented  at  Saturday's  conference.
Aid. Hilditch wished to know if
the assessment set forth In the Board
of Trade's petition was an accurate
one corresponding with that of the
city assessor.
His Worship compared it with the
figures he had and found them correct.
Citizens to Decide
Aid. Lynch said that the policy of
municipalities was to leave these
matters to the people. Disastrous results had followed the policy of coun-
cile taking upon themselves to handle
these without the people's mandate.
A number of citizens were represented through this petition. The council had agreed to submit any proposition Mr. Hays had to offer to the
people. He felt the only way was
to submit this to the G. T. P. officials
and then if it were agreeable submit
the proposition to the people.
Aid. Mobley agreed with this proceeding.
Aid. Hilditch said this proposition
must be given due consideration. He
did not believe the city council was
to act as a go-between for the Board
of Trade and the G. T. P. The city
council had more important duties to
perform than this. He thought after
the G. T. P. passed on it it was for
the council to decide whether this
should be referred to the people or
not. The council was a disinterested
party. The Board of Trade was to
a certain extent Interested. He
thought the council should take this
up at once or refer It to the company.
Before the proposition went to the
G. T. P. It should be either endorsed
or otherwise by the council.
Consideration in Committee
Aid. P.attullo said if any thought
this had not received sufficient consideration he would move In amendment that the council go Into committee of the whole to consider this.
Aid. Hildltch seconded this.
Aid. Barrow did not approve of
the council giving Its case away by
discussing this ln public. It was
rather unfair to the council. The
G. T. P. would not think In
public In the matter.
Aid. Lynch agreed with Aid. Barrow ln the matter.
Aid. Mobley said It would be difficult for the council to evolve a
proposition to put before the G. T. P.
He had favored putting this before
the company as a good way to get an
expression of opinion from the G. P.
T. It would be a more expedient
move.
Aid. Smith thought before this
went to the G. T. P. that something
should be Incorporated dealing with
the waterfront for the city. He
thought it might be better to submit the proposition to a commitee.
Aid. Mclntyre said this was a
delicate question to handle. The best
method would be to refer It to the
finance committee or the streets
committee to bring in a report.
Aid. Hildltch said he made his proposal only to get some Information.
He wanted to know If the city council was to be bound by this. If the
G. T. P. approved of It would the
council have to submit It to the peo
ple and stand by it?   Would the city
council be bound by it?
The amendment of Aid. Pattullo
was carried.
In Committee
The council ment into committee
of the whole with Aid. Mclntyre in
the chair.
His Worship said that personally
he felt that this should go on to the
G. T. P. as a feeler. If the company
agreed to It the council might still
take up the subject of better terms
before submitting the proposition to
the people.
Aid. Barrow did not see why the
Board of Trade could not as properly
have sent this on to the G. T. P. as
one party to the dispute as well as
handing It to the council.
Ills Worship said that lie thought
the Board of Trade moved In what
they thought the wisest method. They
did not want to pass over the council
In any way.
Aid. Barrow agreed that the Board
of Trade had acted with delicacy in
the matter.
Aid. Lynch thought that if this
went on to the G. T. P. they would
probably get a basis upon which
negotiations could proceed. To place
any amendments on this proposition
would mean that the council endorsed it and therefore it would be regarded as the council's basis.
Aid. Hildltch said that the members of the council did not seem to
be ready to endorse this proposition
as a settlement. They all seemed
willing to use it as a means of arriving at settlement. There could be
some give or take in the matter. This
should go without the assent or the
dissent of the council. It would show
that the council was willing to
negotiate.
Will  Forward  Proposition
Aid. Pattullo moved . and Aid.
Smith seconded that the committee
rise and report in favor of forward
ing to the G. T. P. this petition of
the Board of Trade asking for an ex
pression of opinion upon it.
Aid. Hilditch did not quite agree
with this motion. He favored that
the attention of the G. T. P. be drawn
to the fact that this was regarded
as a medium upon which to open
negotiations.
Aid. Pattullo did not feel like committing himself one way or the other
on this before negotiations were
opened.
Aid. Smith thought this was the
right way  to open  the  negotiations.
The motion carried and the proposition will accordingly go forward.

that he be given six"tnonths to effect
a re-organization of the department

(Special to The Journal)
Ottawa, Sept. 2 0.—The builders
who asked permission to tender on
the vessels for the Canadian navy
have not had an opportunity yet to
see the plans.
The admiralty is changing the
plans for cruisers of the Bristol type
and an improved river type of destroyers is also under contemplation.
As these are the classes that are
to be built by Canada it has been suggested that Canada wait until the
changes are made before commencing construction on them.

PLANS ALMOST READY
FOR ALL SECTION ONE
City Engineer Can Give Final Report on Work as Soon
as Property Owners Decide Upon What Grade
They Will Have—Report Expected
Thursday Evening.
According to the information given
out to the city council by the city engineer the local improvement scheme
for the whole of section one will be
completed by about the middle of the
week. The only delay now as set
forth by the engineer is the waiting
upon the residents of certain portions of the district to decide whether
the grade Is to be changed or not.
This applies to Third avenue, Second
avenue and Fraser street. The task
of getting a satisfactory reply from
the property owners is being looked
after by Aid. Barrow, who hopes to
be ready to report before Thursday
night.
The engineer at last night's meeting of the council reported that his
report on the whole work was practically completed as far as he could
go without this question of the
grades being settled.
The council will meet again on
Thursday night when It is expected
that the whole matter may be In such
shape that It will resolve Itself Into
a matter of policy by the council as
to what shall be done in the various
parts of the section with respect to
prosecuting the Improvements.
The question arose as to what
could be done in the matter of holding up a settlement on the matter of
grades Some of the aldermen want
ed to know if one property owner
could hold out against the proposal
and thus endanger It.
It was suggested that to change
the grade it was possible that one or
two might hold it up if they dissented from the change. If, on the other
hand, It was a case of the majority
deciding in favor of the established
grade one or two could not prevent it.
Aid. Barrow believed that some delay might ensue relative to changing
a grade If as he was informed the
plans showing the grades had been
reigstered. The consent of the
lieutenant-governor in council would
then be necessary before a change
was made.
GENEROUS  DONATION
At last evening's meeting of
the city council Aid Smith
asked who was the treasurer
of the city hospital. He asked the question because his
company, Foley, Welch &
Stewart, had a donation of
$250 to give to the institution.
Aid. Smith was informed
that Mr. Cuthbert took the
subscriptions, and the mayor
expressed his thanks on behalf
of tlie institution for the generous offer   of   the company.

On Saturday afternoon the city
council heard the representations of
the committee representing the
Hoard of Trade relative to the as-
assessment of the G. T. P. railway
lands. The representations of the
Board of Trade were embodied in a
petition which was presented by
Thomas Dunn, representing the com-
mittee. This petition was as follows:
To the  Mayor and  Aldermen  of  the
Municipality  of   Prince  Rupert.
Gentlemen: The following recommendations are respectfully submitted to your honorable body by the
committee of five apointed by the
council of the Prince Rupert Board
of Trade to consider the matter of
the assessment of the G. T. P. right
of way in the city of Prince Rupert
made by the government assessor.
The Board of Trade at a meeting
held the 12th day of September, Inst,
passed a resolution unanimously ratifying the report and endorsing its
recommendations and requested this
committee to lay the same before
your honorable body. The recommendations are as follows:—
That the council of the city of
Prince Rupert entre into negotiations
with the railway company to affect
an arrangement on the following
basis:
That the assessment of the railway
right of way and waterfront property

following conditions:
1. That wherever the railway company alienate by lease or otherwise
any portion of the said lands that
such portion be assessed and taxed

schedule of the proposed reductions
In assessment which have already
been published In the Journal. The
petition was signed by the committee, Thomas Dunn, A. J, Morris, P. 1.
Palmer, P. to. Scon and II. E. Clarke.
Ills Worship asked If the sixteen
acres belonging to the G. T. P. Development company near First avenue was included.
Mr.   Dunn  said   It  was  not.
Aid. Mobley wanted to know what
the committee proposed  if tlie company would not proceed on this proposition and said It was fifty per cent
too high.
Mr. Dunn said there wbb no suggestion to offer. This was proposed as
a basis only on which the council
could base Its negotiations.
Aid, Pattullo said there was the
matter of waterfront Tor the city
which was of importance.
Mr. Dunn pointed out that i-nis
mntter had only come up within the
lasl few days. He was agreeable that
the city should get all It could from
'the G. T.  P.
P, I. Palmer said he understood
the G. T. P. could not give any water-
In.in  except on a long lease.
Aid. Hildltch said that every avenue by which the city could get
waterfront had been closed.

did not want to frustrate the plans
of the clt yto get all th" waterfront

OPENS SANATORIUM
Proposal Made That There Should Be Provision Made in Province for
Advanced Cases.
Hon.   H.
the
E.  Young  Will  Urge  Upon
Provincial   Legislature
Such   ll   Step
Last Wednesday the provincial;
sanatorium at Tranquille for the:
treatment of Incipient cases of tuberculosis, was formally opened. A
largo number of interested citizens
Including the Lieutenant-Governor,
Hon. T. to. Paterson, were present
unci inspected the new institution,
which is situated on the shores of
Kamloops lake, on what was formerly Fortune's Ranch,
At the opening ceremony Mr. J. P.
Shaw, M.P.P. for the district, presided.
Dr. Fagan, in giving his secretarial
report, stated that the books were in
Victoria, and were open to the public for inspection. The expenditure to
date was $158,433. Public subscriptions to the amount of $105,679
had been promised, but only $145,-
652 had been paid, which left them
$12,770 in arrears. They had promises by certain societies and individuals of $4,000 for furniture, so that
they were really $8,770 behind. Considerable help had been received
from the Victoria Senior society, the
Victoria Auxiliary, Vancouver Auxiliary, New Westminster society, Vancouver Senior society, Kamloops society, Saanich society, and a large
number of friends, towards the new
building. He thought the churches
might encourage the work by having
societies attached to them from
among their members, and thus be
the means of helping those who were
unable to help themselves. The Masonic lodges had also given great assistance, as had also the Knights of
Pythias, Oddfellows, King's Daughters, and others. They were exceedingly grateful for this help, and he
hoped others would be encouraged
to also come forward.
Lieutenant-Governor
His honor the lieutenant-governor
spoke euloglstlcally of the institution
and thought the committee had done
remarkably good work. The new
building was admirably suited for
such an institution. He sincerely
hoped that the work of the society
would go on, and would be largely
supported by the public. There was
one feature of the case that he wished to mention, and that, was the
treatment of incurable patients, and
as far as he was concerned his sympathy was largely in that direction,
and he felt Inclined to contribute
generously to help those who were
Incurable ain incapable of caring for
themselves. Whether the society
could see Its way clear to take this
question up en- not, he thoughl it
should be taken up cither by the
government or some party in the province, and by so doing he thought
they would strike more at the root
of the trouble than in any other way.
He then declared the new building
open.
Support  Promised
Hon. Dr. Young complimented Dr.
Fagan on his work in connection with jand  staff are kept   separate
approximately $75,000 without furnishings. The wings are of two
storeys, the centre of the building
rising to four storeys, which greatly
improves its appearance. The main
entrance is approached from a spacious verandah, the door opening into
a nice large recreation room, with
fireplaces on either side. Through
this again is the dlningroom, which
is arranged with small tables for four
and will aceominomate about one
hundred persons.
From right to left of the recreation room run passages the entire
length of the building,1 giving access
j to the patients' rooms. These are all
beautifully light and airy, ideal
rooms for the sick, the front portion
of the building, with the exception
of three or four rooms, at the ex
treme end, being entirely devoted to
tre sleeping accommodation for tho
patients, the rear portion being used
for the bathrooms, lavatories, and
other domestic requirements. The
rooms are all single ones, and there
is accommodation for fifty-three
patients, each set of two rooms practically forming a separate block with
small compartments for wearing an-
parel, etc., and a private balcony taking the form of a bow window in
front, on to which the patients may
he wheeled out in bed. There are no
less than twenty bath-rooms, sixteen
being for the patients and the remainder for the use of the staff. Of
these, eight are shower and needle
baths, the others being tub baths.
Hot and cold water is laid to each, as
wel las into every room. Everything
is beautifully appointed and arranged
in the best possible manner for easy
and  effective cleaning.
Easy Stairways
The staircases are specially built
for the use of invalids, the steps onlv
having a rise of four inches, making
them very easy to negotiate. The
third and fourth floors are devoted
to the use of the nurses, while in
the centre of the second floor is the
nurses' office. The floors throughout are of hardwood.
Money, however, is short, and the
result is that the building has not
been furnished throughout as yet.
The furnishing of the kitchen and
dlningroom and twenty-five bedrooms
jare completed, and all the necessary
linen has been obtained. The furniture is plain, but substantial, that
in the bedrooms being in solid oak.
Much still requires to be done in order to complete the furnishing and in
other ways to carry on the work, and
it. is hoped that some public-spirited
citizens will come forward and help
on this noble work for humanity. It
was hoped to construct a separate
administration office, but, unfortunately, funds will not allow of this yet,
and the present offices will have to
be continued in use, notwithstanding
that it will to a certain extent hamper the work.
The appointments of the kitchen
would delight the heart of any cook.
Everything is beautifully arranged
on the most up-to-date plans, a feature being the fact that all the utensils are of aluminum, and, therefore,
easy to clean, are light and very durable. The stove is one of the best
that could, be obtained, and special
arrangements are made by means of
hot water coils by which food can be
kept quite warm for any length of
time without in any way deteriorating. As can be imagined, this is a
most essential thing. The crockery
and silverware used by the patients
as    a
the institution. Proceeding, he said means of precaution. Just outside
while the department he was at the j the inner door of the kitchen there
head of was a non-political one, It Is a tray life, by means of which
was also a non-producing one, and j food can be sent upstairs to patients
very expensive. He had asked the! who are too ill to come downstairs,
government since 1907 to contribute ' It should also be mentioned that the
so  much   a   year,  nnd   up   to  date  it  kitchen  is cut. off   from    the    main
used as a free hospital for  Indigent
patients.
The ranch is one of the features of
the institution. Upon It 600 cattle
and about 80 horses run, and from it
the institution is supplied with dairy
produce, meat, vegetables, etc. The
soil, however, is poor, being only
sand and gravel, but under irrigation it is capable of growing anything
There are now 350 acres under irrigation and splendid crops are obtained, while in the large orchard
some of the finest fruit is grown, of
which the staff is justly proud. The
ranch is managed by Mr. to. to. Shaw
a brother of the M. P. P. for the district. Mr. Shaw has his heart in the
work, and by his zeal and initiative
lias saved the society many thousands
of dollars through his ability to do
work which otherwise would have
necessitated calling in a contractor,
a serious  item of expenditure.
The water is obtained from springs
in the hills, the water being pumped
into a large 6,000 gallon tank 70 feet
high, from which it is laid on all
over the building.
Officials of Society
The officials of the B. C. Tuberculosis society are as follows:
Honorary president, Hon. James
Dunsmuir; president, Mr. A. C.
Flumerfelt; vice-presidents, Mr. R.
Marpole, Mr. J. S. C. Fraser, Mr. A. J.

At present there are only two
nurses but it is hoped to increase
these to eight when the new building
is  in  full  swing.
A Norfolk agriculturist is growing
a variety of spinach which attains a
height of fifty to sixty inches. It is
claimed for it that it will give a
greater weight per acre than any
other annual crop yet grown for this

REFORM OP LORDS
Earl Grey Touches Upon the Policy
of Liberals in That Respect
An outline of the Liberal party's
attitude on the much-vexed question
of the House of Lords veto was given
recently by Sir Edward Grey, the
secretary for foreign affairs, ln a
speech at Tillmouth park, near Berwick.
While, he said, he was most unwilling to say anything that could in
any way impair the prospects of the
conference of party leaders that had
met to consider the subject, if the
conference could not settle the question the fight would be resumed and
the question' would be settled by
lighting. He continued: "So far as
we on the Liberal side are concerned,
some settlement of the House of
Lords question which will prevent
us from being placed again In the
position in which we were placed in
1906—of finding ourselves with a
large majority, and yet unable to
overcome the deadlock between the
House of Commons and the House of
Lords—is politically speaking a matter of life and death to the Liberal
party."
Sir Edward Grey stated, in conclusion, that the government had pledged themselves that they would not
drop the House of Lords question and
this pledge held just as good today
as It did when It was made.

KEIR BARDIE'S FEARS
Socialist Member of Imperial House
Expresses Himself Forcibly
Mr. Keir Hardie has made still another attack on the throne in a speech
at Tynemouth.   He said:—
"This country inits government is
becoming les democratic. The power
of the cabinet is growing, and the
control of the house of commons over
it Is nothing like so effective as it was
even twenty years ago. But with the
growth of the power of the cabinet
the growth of another power is becoming stronger every year.
"I refer to the power of the throne.
Every influence which works in the
dark and over which we have no control is an influence that ought to be
held in check.
"I do not want to see a republican
agitation renewed in this country;
but if things go on as they are going
on now, the day will come when the
battle of the people against privilege
will require to be fought over again,
and the rights of the house of commons won afresh."

EXCLUDE ASIATICS
White Fishermen of the Fraser River
Are Petitioning Dominion
Government.
Regulations   Respecting   Taking   of
Salmon Are Violated by Japs,
It is Alleged
That all fishing licenses and privileges be withheld from Asiatics Is
the burden of a petition which has
been largely signed by those Interested in the fishing industry in British
Columbio. This will be presented to
Hon. L. P. Brodeur, minister of marine and fisheries at Ottawa, who will
be asked to make such regulations
as will confine the fishing in B. C.
water to Caucasians. The desire for
a white Canada is at the root of
the movement.
In the preamble of the petition it
is pointed out that the white population of British Columbia are being
forced to seek their livelihood in the
United Staets where Asiatics are not
given licenses to fish. "Should the
present fishing condition in our
country continue to obtain," it reads,
"we will lose our entire fishing population, a people who furnish the best
and almost only available material
for manning of vessels of war." It
concludes by asking that fishing licenses be withheld from Asiatics and
that no licenses be issued to disinterested persons for speculative purposes.
At the present time there is considerable dissatisfaction among the
white fishermen along the Fraser
river owing to the alleged violation of
the fishing regulations by Japanese
fishermen. The fishing regulations
distinctly state that "no salmon nets
of any kind shall be used in that portion of the Fraser river inside the
outside edges of the Sandheads, from
Point Grey to the 49th parallel of
north latitude, from the 25th August
to the 15th September, in each year
both   inclusive."
Down at Steveston during the
greater part of the close season three
fish canneries have been in full op
eration and at the present time the
Lighthouse cannery Is still running,
says the New Westminster Columbian. It is operated by a Chinese
canneryman. The Asiatics engaged
in fishing state that they fish outside
the restricted area but the majoritj
of the white fishermen along the
Fraser are of the opinion that the
fishing regulations are not being
strictly adhered to .
"It is a well known fact," said
John Kendall, a well informed fisherman on tbe Fraser, "that at nights
the cohoe salmon run deep. The
Asiatics, In order to make the large
catches they are making at nights,
must come in from the deep water
and I am of the opinion that unoer
cover of darkness they creep in to
the Sandheads and fish in prohibited
waters. It's a pretty hard matter to
prove but with active fisheries patrol
it might be done."
John N. Brodwick, secretary of
the Fraser River Fishermens' Union
is also of the opinion that the regulations are being violated. His suggestion as to the best means of getting around this difficulty, provided
licenses were not refused to Asiatics,
was to forbid fishing in the Gulf to a
point as far up the coast as Sechelt
or even further. He believed the
Fisheries Department would be able
to enforce the regulations regarding
fishing at the mouth of the Fraser
river without much difficulty.
The general opinion of fishermen
along the river Is that the regulations
as at present made and enforced protects the Asiatic fishermen at the expense of the white fishermen.

LONDON'S WATER SUPPLY.
Statistics Showing Disposition Made
in Great Metropolis
Remarkable fignies illustrating
the enormous consumption of water
for domestic and manufacturing purposes by the seven million people
within the area supplied by the metropolitan water board have been compiled by William I-J. Bryan, M.InstO.
E., chief engineer to the board. Mr.
Bryan gives the following average
daily figures for the jear ending
March 32st last: Daily supply, 225,-
660,000 gallons; weight, total, 1,007-
410 tons; weight, per person, two
cwt. 3 qrs. 11 lbs.; revenue per 1,000
gallons, slightly over Sd; revenue per
100 buckets, Is %d.
This quantity of water used by
London each day ln the year would
fill' a canal 85 miles long, 20 feet
wide, 4 feet deep, or a railway train
800 miles In length, consisting of
201,482 wagons, each holding five
tons of water.
"In 1895," said Mr. Bryan, "London used about 38% gallons each
about 32. This saving has been ef-
day per person; in 1909-10 only
fected by the use of the Deacon
metre, an instrument which automatically records on paper the flow
of water ln the main hour by hour
day and night. There is, let us say
one instrument to ten streets. If
there is a leak in one of these streets
the diagram drawn on the paper In
the midnight hours will show It at
once. By shutting off the water street
by street in this area we can ascertain from the diagram ln which
street the leak exists. The next stey
is to find the faulty joint in the pipe
and this is done by listening for the
faint hissing sound which betrays the
escape of water to the pratised ear.
Our men use a simple stethoscope,
consisting of a rod of straight-grained wood. If there is much vibration
or noise in the neighborhood they
stop their ears and place the end of
the rod against the chest. The
amount saved by detecting and stopping waste is almost incalculable.
Long ago I worked out the fact that
a leak one-eighth of an inch in diameter in a pipe carrying water at
twenty pounds pressure will waste
2,000 gallons a day, enough for the
domestic use of 100 persons."
 —o	
A remarkable and daring feat of
airmanship has been accomplished by
a young Welsh aeronaut, Mr. Willows, who, on a small airship of
home construction driven by a motor
of British make, landed on the Winn
estate at Mottingham, in the Lee
district of London, after a ten hours'
night journey from Cardiff. His objective was the Crystal Palace, but
his supply of petrol giving out, he
was obliged to pass practically over
the Palace and come down by opening the gas cap of his balloonette.
The journey, which included the
crossing of the Bristol channel, was
quite 160 miles, or 70 miles more
than has been done previously in
England.

TACTFUL ACTION
The advantages of approaching
mailers affecting the material advantage of the city in a sane manner
and without passion is being shown
ln connection with the matter of difference between the city council and
the G. T. P. The Board of Trade
approached this subject, which was
one that required careful handling if
ill-feeling was not to be engendered
in a wise way. The result of the
whole has been the creation of a
clear understanding between the
council and the Board in the matter.
It has been handled in a way that
could reasonably be expected from
business men who were more con
cerned in the adjustment of matters
that were of material moment to the
city, than in the question of who
should reap honor in the matter.
So far both bodies have given displays of business ability and tact
in dealing with a situation which
was liable to have been productive of
an aggravated situation had it not
been in the hands of men who felt the
responsibility that attached to them
in solving a difficult situation.
As it now stands there is good
prospect for an amicable settlement
of the whole matter with the G. T. P.
INSPECTED  STEWART
G.   G.
S.  Lindsay,  of  Toronto,  Wns
Agreeably Surprised
G. G. S. Lindsay, K.C., or Toronto,
returned a few days ago from Stewart, and after a few days spent here
left, for the south last night, air.
Lindsay for many years has been
recognized as one of the great financial leaders. He has been associated
with some of the greatest mining
ventures in Canada, and his present
trip was for the purpose of going into
the prospects at Stewart with the object in view of investment with his
associates if the camp was found to
warrant It.
On his return to the city, Mr. Lindsay was naturally a little diffident
about saying much respecting his
tour of the mines. He expressed surprise at the amount of work that had
been done by the different companies in the construction of trails
and roads in the short time and under the conditions.
During the time of his stay in the
«amp, Mr. Lindsay did not have an
idle moment. He dally climbed to
the different claims and made a careful inspection of the work going on
there. Being a prospective buyer
lie naturally did not wish to say
much. It was inferred from what he
did say, however, that he considered
that, the owners of properties were
not asking too little for their claims.
The character of the formation was
a surprise to the eastern investor.
The rock in every director was mineralized and in that respect differed
from what could be found generally
in camps.

POSTPONE INCORPORATION
it Is Now  Proposed  to  Incorporate
Next Session
Streets Will all Be Graded Before Any
Lots are Put on the
Market.
Waterfront Lots Will  He Leased on
Favorable Terms to Manufacturers
tSpecial to The Journal)
Vancouver, Sept. 20.-—Announcement has been made of the Intention
of the Canadian Northern Railway
company to formally place their Port
.Mann properties on the market early
In next .March. Tenders for the clearing of the 2,000-acre tract have been
called for, and the bids will be opened September 26. The specifications
require that brushing must commence not later than October 5 and
must be completed within ninety
days from that date. After the lind
is properly cleared the engineers will
commence the work of laying out the
townsite under the direct supervision of one of the most eminent landscape architects in the Dominion. All
the streets will be graded and built
before the public auction of the land
and the purchasers of lots will thus
be enabled to start construction immediately after purchase of they so
desire.
Mr. A. D. McRae has given some
interesting details to the press in regard to the type of city which It is
the intention of the company to build
there.
"The residential and business section will be laid out on the elevated
ground to the south of the railway
yards and docks. Over at Port Mann
will be established the main coast
terminals of the Canadian. Northern
railway, with all their adjuncts. Port
Mann embraces a total area of a little over 2,000 acres All the flat In
proximity to the waterfront has been
reserved for railway yards and
wharfage purposes. This will comprise some hundreds of acres and the
shops, round-houses and railway offices will be erected there."
Maekenize & Mann have definitely
decided that they will establish their
principal carbuilding plant at Port
Mann. This plant alone will give employment to at least 5,000 men and
with the other hands in the yards and
offices will bring the total force up
to about 6,000. This will ensure,
aside from any other source, a population of approximately 25,000 people dependent on the railway for
their support. This estimate relates
to conditions as they will exist after
ihe Britjsh Columbia division has
been linked up with the lines east of
the Rocky Mountains.
Throught Port Mann will pass all
the east and westbound transcontinental freight routed via the Canadian
Northern including Oriental and Australian business and freight traffic
to and from Vancouver Island."
An undoubted attraction to manufacturers to locate at Port Mann will
be the policy adopted by the company. The inducement will take the
form of a lease based on the original
cost of the land, and not as might
be expected on a progressive valua-
t'on basis, for a term of years, renewable by mutual agreement from
Ime to time. As a result of the appreciation of the advantage of such
a system one large milling company
as already made aplicatlon to the
company to be allotted a site by the
waterfront.
None of the waterfront sites will
he sold outright to anyone, the company deeming it better to offer a
lease on favorable terms to manufacturers and thus ensure that there will
always be reproductive works In the
town of Port Mann. The company
besides leasing out sites to factories,
and other private companies, will
erect large warehouses and grain
elevators along the waterfront.

local lacrosse team has again proved
its title to the distinction of being
ihe fastest lacrosse team in the world

them, but were not able to win the
victory, The match was ^ most exciting one, and was marked by the
most brilliant play '. y both sides.
SHOT BY ACCIDENT
Man Shoots His Partner Thinking n
Rear Was Prowling Around
Victor Sjolund was killed at the
Portland Canal Mining Company last
Wednesday night by his partner, Gus
Johnson, who awaking suddenly and
thinking a bear was prowling around
their camp, shot towards; the door of
the tent. Victor was either just going out or coming in and received the
bullet in the right leg, severing the
large artery. He bled to death in a
short time. The remains were
brought to Stewart by the McMillan
stage and Chief Dinsmore has gone
to Prince Rupert to arrange for an
inquest. Meanwhile Johnson is held
here. The men were working on
the Crown claims, situated about six
miles from the mouth of Bitter creek.
J. H. McMullen has returned from
Stewart where he held an Inquest into the circumstances connected with
the shooting. The coroner's verdict
was one of accidental shooting.

AN HISTORIC EVENT
Preparations for Investiture of Prince
of Wales at Car
narvon.
Wales  Will  Make  Day  Notable One
—Over 15,000 Will View
Ceremony
Carnarvon, where the investiture
of the young Prince of Wales will
take place next year, Is overjoyed at
its selection for the ceremonial.
Mr. G. Davis, ex-mayor of Carnarvon, says that he and the present
mayor had been inquiring into the
capabilities of Carnarvon castle for
the contemplated ceremonial. They
found that by utilizing existing towers and tiers of passages around the
internal walls—all open to and commanding an unrestricted view of the
interior—and supplementing these
with temporary structures, they could
at a low estimate, accommodate from
ten to fifteen thousand spectators,
all having an excellent view of every
part of the proceedings.
The historic Queen Eleanor's Gateway would be brought into use.
Tradition has it that from this gateway Edward I presented the first
Prince Edward of Carnarvon to the
assembled Welsh people. The gateway faces an extensive slate quarry,
and commands a fine view of Snow-
donfa, where, centuries ago, the
Welsh made a successful stand
against the English. On the gateway a temporary platform will be
constructed, the slate quarry* will be
cleared and barricaded, providing accommodation for 50,000 additional
spectators, who would also become
eye-witnesses of part of the ceremonial.
The young prince, immediately af
ter the formal investiture within the
castle, would emerge through Queen
Eleanor's Gateway on to the prepared platform, whence he would address and receive the homage of 50,-
000 Welsh subjects.
This is a rough outline of the preparations contemplated by the Carnarvon authorities. Further inquiries
indicate that the investiture will be
made the occasion for a great national gathering, and an imposing state
ceremonial on an unprecedentedly extensive scale.
The home fleet is expected to manoeuvre in Carnarvon Bay, while the
whole strength of Welsh territorials,
reinforced by a strong body of British cavalry, will be mobilized. The
day's proceedings will close with a
banquet at the great pavilion.
 o	
A Real Compliment
What cultivated and polished gentleman ever paid to the mistress of
his heart a prettier compliment than
the illiterate black man? He and his
dusky bride had pust been married
by a white minister. The groom asked.what was the amount of the fee.
"Oh, well," answered the minister, "you can pay me whatever you
think it is worth to you."
The negro turned and silently looked his bride over from head to foot;
then, slowly rolling up the whites of
his eyes, said:
"My stars, sah, you has done ruined me for life; you has, for sure."

Prince Rupert Is no longer a port
alone. It has become a railway centre. Every morning there pulls out
of the station here an eastbound
freight train loaded with supplies
for tha construction camps of Foley,
Welch and Stewart on the Skeena
river.
The destination of the train is Mile
65, wh'ere the facilities exist for the
handling of the freight lo the river
steamers of tho company and where
the supplies arc taken from the enrs
placed nn Ihe siding platform there
provided and in turn transferred lo
'be company's steamers to be carried
mi up the river lo its destination at
various camps along Ihe route.
The aid which the railway has 1 a
in the handling of the freight this
fall has been most acceptable to all
concerned. With low water In the
river the fleet was put up against a
difficult proposition. By the system
of transferring up to Mile 65 by rail j
two days was saved by the steamers
on the round trip up the river to
Hazelton.
The contractors have taken advantage of the new sj'stem to get a
large consignment of cement taken
up. The temporary sheds on the
wharf are being rapidly emptied by
this method and the officials have
little fear of being able to get all
that Is necessary up the river this
fall.

then towed to Esquimau. About forty
new plates will have to be set in, as
well as floors and beams.
A shipment of fifty tons of rich ore
from Whitehorse was jettisoned, and
a tug and scow from Juneau is now
engaged in salving this. When the
rock underneath the steamer was being blasted material carrying gold
and copper values was uncovered on
the reef.
IMPERIAL SLOOP OF WAR
Welcome to the shipping men engaged on the Skeena river and those
who have freight to transport, has
been the sudden rise in the waters
of the river.
Considerable time has been lost
lately in regard to getting freight and
provisions up the Skeena river. Of
late the river has been very low and
dangerous to navigation. Reports
now from Hazelton are that the
water is rapidly rising and conse-
quenty both Hudson's Bay boats are
on their way to this port. The Inlander also got away yesterday after
being repaired.
It is regarded as certain that all
the freight will be able to be carried
this year unless the water should fall
unexpectedly.
The G. T. P. railway has come In
as a valuable aid this fall. Foley,
Welch & Stewart are shipping a train
load out every day to 65-mile point
where connection is made with the
steamers.
Following close upon the arrival of
the Canadian cruiser Rainbow, at
Esquimau, the Imperial government
will augment its fleet at the station
by the addition ot H. M. S. Rinaldo,
now being refitted at Hongkong for
the voyage to Esquamilt, according
to advices brought by th steamer
Monteagle. With the addition of the
Rinaldo the Imperial government will
have four warships at Esquimau, H.
M. S. Shearwater, Algerine, Rinaldo,
and Egeria, the latter being in the
hydrographlc service.
The Rinaldo is a sloop-of-war similar in model to the Shearwater and
Algerine. She is practically a sister
ship to the Shearwater, of 980 tons,
She mounts six 4-inch guns and
steams 13% knots an hour. Before
being retired as ineffective, when Sir
John Fisher retired many ships a few
years ago she was used as a gunnery
tender on the China station and until
recently was laid up at Hongkong. A
naval officer, who arrived on the
steamer Monteable stated that the
Rinaldo had been recommissioned
and had been ordered to refit for the
voyage to Esquimau. It was expected she would be ready to start for
this station early next month and
will probably arrive about the same
time as H. M. S. Rainbow arrives
from Portsmouth. The addition of
the Rinaldo will mean that over 200
men will be added to the naval forces
at Esquimau.
It Is generally understood that the
Imperial government is to retain a
part of the naval station when the
long-pending transfer Is made to the
Canadian forces, and the Imperial
vessels will be maintained here after
the Canadian warships are acquired.
The work on the west coast of South
America, patrol duty in Bering sea,
and other work will require the presence of vessels of the Shearwater, Algerine and Rinaldo class on the Pacific and Esquimau will be the base
of these warships.
The United States battleship
Charleston passed up the straits on
Sunday bund to Bremerton from Yokohama The Charleston was the flag
ship of the United States far eastern
squadron and the Admiral's flag was
transferred to the New York when
the Monteagle was at Yokohama. The
United States warship left the ajpan-
ese port the same day as the C. P .R.
liner. The crew will be paid off at
Bremerton.

not  interfere  with  negotiations  towards getting all they could.
Mr. Scott said that the committee
did not pretend to dictate to the
council. This was offered only as a
suggestion representing a large section of the citizens.
A. J. Morris said the council could
depend upon the Board of Trade
backing the council up if any such
negotiations were entered into. In
the matter of the waterfront, Mr.
Morris said that he did not think
that the company would be unreasonable In leasing a piece of waterfront.
His Worship called attention to the
fact that the committee had not dealt
with outlying property away from
the waterfront, which was ridiculously low In assessment.
Mr. Dunn said the committee dealt
only with the property of the G. T. P.
company, nnd not the G. T. P. Development company.
The committee then withdrew, the
city council iieing left to consider
the proposition offered.

J. W. Stewart, the active head of j
the contracting firm of Foley, Welch

from an eastern trip. He feels quite
encouraged over the outlook as far
as labor is concerned.
James Murray, of the post office
Inspector's office In Vancouver, was
a passenger north on the Prince
George. He went on to Stewart
where he will look into the matter
of arranging postofflce accommodation and a postmaster at the mining
town.
The C. P. R. steamer Princess May
in tow of the tug William Jolliffe, escorted by the steamer Santa Cruz, has
reached Esquimau and was put on
the ways for repairs., The salvage
was in charge of Captain Logan, of
the London Salvage association, who
was on this coast looking after the
Yucatan job. The Puget Sound Salvage company's steamer Santa Cruz
and the British Columbia salvage tug
William Jolliffe worked on an arrangement by the day. After calculating the tipping weight It was
decided to construct launching ways
under the forward part, with capacity
of eleven tons to the superficial foot,
but these were found unsatisfactory
and new ways were built. Then all
hands were set to work to patch tbe
holes. There was a long rip of sixty
feet opened eighteen inches wide on
the starboard side forward and a hole
abreast four feet long on the port
side. Both bilges were stove In, and
there were holes under the engines
and boilers. These were wedged and
plates bolted over the rips and preparations were then made to haul the
vessel afloat at high water. Anchors
were placed with 250 fathoms of wire
and cable from either side of the
stern and the big pumps of tbe Santa
Cruz were placed aboard to keep the
hull comparatively free The Santa
Cruz was unable to float the vessel
and despatches were sent to Washington and permission secured to send
the British wrecking tug William.
Jolliffe to the scene. No further pulls
were made until she arrived, and with
the Jolliffe at one side, the Santa
Crutz at the other, another attempt
was made. The Santa Cruz swung
around and fouled the Joliffe and the
attempt failed. The steamer moved
sixty feet the next time, hanging by
the bow and stern and it was feared
for a time she would break. She held
wonderfully without further damage
despite the heavy pulls, and the third
pull on September 3 freed the steamer.     She   was   taken   to  Juneau   and

The use of the site at Seal Cove
for the civic electric plant will be a
temporary one according to the information given by the committee at
last night's meeting of the council.
Negotiations will have to be entered
upon with the officials of the G. T. P
in the matter in the hope of securing
it temporarily.
Aid. Smith, chairman of the electric light committee, reported that
he had called upon David Hays. The
latter had said that he thought the
best way would be to take It up with
Mr. Chamberlin direct. He did not
think that a lease would be granted.
He thought that the company would
not object to the city using the site
temporarily.
Aid. Hildltch proposed that they
wire Mr. Chamberlin looking for the
use of the site until next spring and
then take steps to purchase a site.
Aid. Barrow said all that was
wanted was a temporary plant.
Aid. Smith said he was only reporting progress. If the council so
desired the committee could proceed
with negotiations.
Aid. .Mclntyre called attention to
the fact that the city was making
little progress In the matter of a
plant.    They should act promptly.
His Worship thought there would
be no difficulty about getting the site.
Aid. Mobley suggested writing Mr.
Chamberlin as by that means they
could more fully explain the situation and probably save time. Mr.
Chamberlin could then be asked to
wire his reply.
The matter was left to the committee.
Getting Plant Together
The work of securing the necessary plant is progressing very satisfactorily however. The city engineer
reported that an order hail been placed    tor   a  100-k.w, machine which
would be sufficient to light the
streets, Tenders linil been asked for
two 150-k.w. machines which would
ice Installed as soon ns possible. The
arrangements are In hand for the
securing also of the necessary wire
and the englni s and other accessories
in connection with the plant.
The engineer reported that the
necessary apparatus for the testing
of tin boilers which have been taken
over from the B, C. Tie & Timber
company cannol lie obtained in the
city. He hud placed an order for
them and the test would be made as
soon ns the equipment reached the
city.
In conned ion with the eleotrlc machines, it wns pointed nut thai the
100-k.w, one was In stock and could
be shipped al once from Toronto. It
should be here by about the latter
pari of October, The other machines

A letter was read at lust night's
meeting    from    the   Canadian  Fair-
Before the city council adjourned
on Saturday afternoon, G. to. Morrow made a request that that body
give attention to the need of supplying power as well as light at once.
He did so, he pointed out, on behalf
of his newspaper plain, the Optimist,
At present he found it impossible to
get insurance and would he forced to
build some kind of cement building
if some action was not taken to do
away with gasoline equipment
He pointed oui that there were
other concerns in the city in a similar position.
Aid. Barrow wanted to know what
power Mr. .Morrow thought could be
disposed of in the city at present.
Mr. Morrow thought about 100
horse power.
Mr. Palmer said that his eompanj
operating the planing factory woulo
put in electric power if it were available and do away with steam power.
Aid. Lynch wanted to know how
much nis company would be willing
to pay for power.
Mr. Palmer said that would require some thought. At present in
spite of the fact that they were using a lot of fuel made on the premises, It was costing about $30(1 a
month for coal. They manufactured
enough fuel to run the dry kilns but
they would like to run the plant
otherwise by electric power.
Aid. Lynch did not know that the
city could well hope to generate
power by using a steam plant at a
rate cheaper than the private Indivt
dual could supply his power.
His Worship said that the first
duty was to get a light plant. A
dynamo was ordered and another one
would follow. If a day load was to
be obtained they might have service
in the way of power for the day only.
Mr. Morrow thought by putting In
power outside companies would be
kept out.
Aid. Barrow suggested that the object Mr. Morrow had in view was not
so much cheap power as the lessening
of the risk, he believed.
With this Mr. Morrow agreed, and
the council was left with the suggestion.

I Crippen's Defender I
i *
<.*:..;..;..;..:..;.*;..;..:..;..:..;..:..*..%.>.;..:..>.;..;..;..;,.;..;.
With all his experience in London
courts, Mr. Arthur Newton, who has
cast doubts upon the guilt of many
alleged murderers and secured verdicts of "Not Guilty," when the cases
seemed hopeless, it is admitted that
the most exciting, extraordinary and
world-wide interesting case will be
his forthcoming defence of Dr. Crippen.
The solicitor, now extending the
lines of Dr. Crippen's defence, has
had a remarkably varied record In
London, appearing for the defence in
most of the sensational murder trials
for several years past.
From the earliest period of his
legal career Mr. Newton was interested in the practical side of criminal
law, his successes having been
achieved In almost every police court
in London, not omitting the Old
Bailey and Clerkenwoll Sessions.
His early experience, however, was
gained In New Zealand. He had
found "family law" somewhat monotonous in England, and set out in
18S5 for the land of settlers and
Maoris. It was probably his experi
ence abroad which strengthened him
in his defence of many criminals and
helped the prisoners to gain theh
freedom. But his stay under this
Southern Cross was of short duration
for he soon afterwards returned to
London.
His first case of any notoriety wag
that of a Mayfield murder, for which
a woman was placed In the dock.
The evidence looked black but there
were complications and Newton soon
twisted them into entanglements and
did not fail in his effect upon tho
jury.
Another celebrated case in which
he appeared was the Hoxton murder,
although in this case, William Cur-
rell, the accussed, was ultimately
hanged. Newton was also engaged
in the defence of Louise Masset, a
French governess, found guilty of
the murder of a child. The lawyer
worked lndefatlgably in his client's
Interest, and did not give up hope
even after the death sentence had
been pronounced, but the woman
was ultimately hanged.
One of the most tragic cases in
which Newton acted for the defendant was called "The Grafton Street
Horror" the case in which Marie
Hermann was indicted for the wilful
murder of Anthony Stephens. It was
a case possessing all the coloring of
continental tragedies... She had
aroused suspicions by having a large
box removed from her lodgings. The
trunk was finally broken open and
the body of Stephens found inside.
He had been killed by blows from a
poker. The evidence was certainly
convincing, but in face of it, Newton
defended tbe woman. How he managed to convince the judge and jury
that the woman acted in self-defence,
the murdered man being some
seventy years of age, was one of the
magical points of law, but Marie
Hermann was only found guilty of
manslaughter, and sentenced to six
years  servitude.
The murder of Miss Camille Holland at the Moat Farm gave Newton
another occasion to defend a suspect-
edmurderer. Samuel Herbert Dou-
gall had forged Miss Holland's name
nnd to cover the forgery murdered
her and buried the body on her
small estate in Essex. Having disposed of the victim, Dougall continued to forge her name, thus
arousing suspicion. The body was
found, Douglass arrested and In spite
of Mr. Newton's defence, the prisoner finally paid the death  penalty.
In the Camden Town murder, Newton acted for Robert Wood, an artist, who was charged with the wll-
Iul murder of Emily Elizabeth Dim-
mock, in 1907. Having laid the
foundation for the defence in the
police court, Mr. Newton called upon
Mr. Marshall Hall to assist him in
the Old lialley, and between the two
lawyers a verdict of "not guilty"
was secured,
Mr. Newton lias, of course, appeared in oilier than murder cases. One
of the mosl remarkable was the case
relating to the possession of Ormonde, the winner of the Derby In
1886, and purchased from the Duke
of Westminster, There was a dispute over the possession of the
horse, but Mr. Newton, after a hard
battle, succeeded in regaining it for
his client.

THE PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
I    The Skeena and its Prospects    |
INDUSTRIAL PEACE
Rev. W. Stevenson, of the Emmanuel Baptist church in Victoria is
writing a series of very interesting
articles for the Colonist founded on
his trip along the west coast of British Columbia during the past summer. Mr. Stevenson is one of the most
scholarly preachers In the province.
He was deeply impressed with the
immense potentialities of Prince Rupert when he visited it, and his impressions of the country tributary to
this city is of great interest. It his
latest article he says: —
Looked at on the map, Skeena
river, British Columbia, appears only
as one of the many tcrtuous and ragged little inlets by which the Pacific
Ocean has eaten its way into the
great mainland of the North Pacific.
There is, as is usual with maps, nothing to suggest to the imagination
what the little blue streak, dotted
with small dark spots, may really
stand for. But even when one has
travelled all the way from Victoria
or Vancouver, and has learned how
deceptive a thing a geographical map
can be, he is in no way prepared for
the sight which greets his eyes as he
looks out upon this river for the first
time. It was on a bright July morning when the writer had this experience.
Our steamer had carired us during the night through the long and
glorious Greenville Channel, and up
by the Malacca Passage. During the
run northward we had visited many
places which must always appeal to
man's sense ot the beautiful and sublime in nature. But everything which
we had till then experienced of
beauty and grandeur was eclipsed by
the sight which greeted our gaze as
we came on deck in the early morning and looked out upon the Skeena.
Here was a magnificent river encircled by the most romantic scenery
in the world, and all bathed In the
glory of a bright July morning.
Let the reader, if he can, think of
the St. Lawrence, or the Hudson, and
let him imagine the scenery of the
Tyrol, or of Lake Lucerne, with such
glorious skies as are to be seen on
the Great Lakes of Ontario, and he
can imagine the Skeena. There were
hills to hlght and left of us, gemmed with long streaks of snow, like
veins of silver running from their
jagged peaks. Away beyond these
the mountains stood like giant sentinels, or stretched like sleeping
kings. But what was no less surprising was the commotion on the river
Here were great fleets of fishing vessels, their brown sails shining in the
morning sun. To right and left of us
nestling at the foot of the hills, little
villages appeared at intervals along
the shores.
Away yonder, looking northeastward, the new Grand Trunk Pacific
railway shows itself, as it emerges
from the mountains and threads its
easy way down along the banks of
the Skeena, until it bends round out
of sight on its way to Prince Rupert.
Along the shores we can see the
white facings of the rocks which have
been blasted out to make way for
this second great belt of steel which
Is to bind the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Before long, trains, starting their
journey at Halifax or Ne-\ York, will
be running, and the merchandise of
nations will pour through this way
from east to west, and west to east,
all over the world. What the River
Skeena will then become it. is not difficult to Imagine. It needs no prophetic insight to see these waters
alive with the argosies of commerce
and of pleasure. Our steamer called
at many important canneries.
We threaded our way with great
caution among the salmon nets,
whose lines are marked at Intervals
for miles along the route. As we
dodged oul nnd in among the nets,
trying to find a clear channel, we
were reminded of the schoolboys'
puzzles, when you are asked to find
your way nut from a labyrinth of lines
Without crossing one of them. We
break one or two lines as we pass,
bin the fishermen are Indulgent, for
they know thai they have a good
friend in our captain, who will stand
by lor a whole nighl often rather
than run through their nets. Our
most Important place of call Is Port
Essington, one of the oldest towns on
the Skeena, and a centre of such
trade as gathers round the salmon
Industry. The population is largely
Indian, Chinese and .laps, with a good
sprinkling of whites. There are some
good hotels, a number of churches, a
Salvation Army barracks, and government offices.
At present the chief source of
wealth on the Skeena is the salmon
fishing and the canning industry. This
year the fishermen are having a
bumper year. Although tbe canneries
commenced the season prepared for a
big catch, they had run out of tins
and fresh supplies were being rushed northward as fast as possible. The
pack of salmon on the Skeena this
year is almost  unprecedented.
Whilst down soutii according to reports, the fishermen are bemoaning
their poor luck, being reduced to ar.
average of forty fish per boat per day,
up at the Skeena the smal'est catches
run up over thi hundred and some
are very high. In ,)ine cases they
rose to 400, and as many as 700. One
man boasted that his average for
five weeks had been one ton and a
quarter per week, an 1 his wages went
up accordingly, for the men fire- paid
so much per fish The Jap? up here
are a splendid race; brave, skillfu',
sober, clean and thrifty. Tluy are
well worthy to be called the Britons
of the Far East. The Indian, by comparison, is heavy imbrous and dull
of intellect; but he, too, works or.
with great energy for 'he fc'g pay.
While he is away fishing, his wife and
children are at work ln the canneries
Everywhebe the Indian is in evidence.
The women crow' the canneries and
do all the cleaning md packing, and
do it well. Somehow y.,u dl not like
to think of your tinned salmon being
handled by Chinamen, of whose
habits of cleanliness you are n.* In
in all cases quite convinced. It is,
therefore, some relief to find that the
Chinaman has almost nothing to do
with the salmon beyond handling the
tins after they are packed and then
soldered by a machine.
The Indian women do all the washing and cleaning and packing of the
fish, and do it with a scrupulous regard to cleanliness. It may be some
relief to know this after the scares
the public has had about filthy meatpacking factories. I am not in the
least interested in the sale of tinned
foods; but gladly put it on record
that nothing could exceed the care
and cleanliness of the process of preparing and packing the fish in these
canneries. Only in one case did I
see anything approaching carelessness, and this was by a white man.
One thing impresses the visitor
among this mixed multitude of work
people of the north of British Columbia. Everybody seemed happy. Even
the Indian, who is seldom seen to
smile, and who looks out upon the
world from eyes filled with prehistoric seriousness and solemnity
seemed happy and contented. The
Chinaman, when busy, always ap
pears to be chuckling deep down in
his breast, as he sees the cents and
dollars pile up on his pay check. Only
the Japs are boisterously happy, as
though defiant of the Fates. And the
reasci for this universal content here
is not far to seek.
All these workers are making good
money. The canneries themselves
con look forward to another year of
good dividends. What this means in
the way of money added to the income of British Columbia may be understood when it is stated that the
tot*' value of the fishing industry in
British Columbia last year amounted
to $6,465 038, and that was not a
big year. In 1905 it reached to nearly $10,0uo,(o0; or thirty per cent of
the entire profit;: made from fishing
for all Canada. Of this amount over
8*4 millions was derived from sal-
nionthat is in British Columbia. The
industry providts employment for up-
wrds cf 12,000 people, who are able
to make a good living at one of the
healthiest occupations in the world
And so the whirligig of time has
brought It about that this, the youngest and least populated of all the
provinces of the Dominion has won
Us way to the front as the banner
province in the fishing industry. But
that cannot be wondered at when one
looks oul across this broad expanse of
water, and at those mountain ranges,
Willi their grout valleys, so rich in
ei cryi Iiiiig that goes to build up the
sinews of a nation's strength. One begins to feel that he will presently
wonder at nothing that tells of
wealth or possibility of progress in
ibis fur land.
Up tin- rher there, as the valley
opens and widens out, there are at
least 100,000 acres ol good agricultural land waiting to be tilled. Mr
to. E. Scott, a gentleman who, at the
wish of the government, visited this
region and who went over the ground
most carefully, declared in his report
that, in bis belief, the upper Skeena
will become one of Ihe garden spots
of British Columbia. It is these possibilities which lead the great railroad makers to build railways
through there desert places. They
see the wealth that lies buried in
them, and foresee the coming of the
people who will one day build from
their brain and muscle a new empire on the great northwest of the
Pacific Coast.
A branch of the Industrial Peace
a:-sociation was recently organized in
\ aiicouver at a meeting held in the
Y.M.C.A. rooms. There was a good
representative attendance of citizens
from the various walks of life.
Bishop De Pencier occupied the chair
and Mr. J. J. Dissette was elected secretary  of  the  meeting.
Bishop De Pencier said there could
be no greater cause than that which
aimed to prevent misunderstandings,
he would not say between employer
and employee but between the two
classes of workers, because every man
worth anything was a worker, no
matter what his station.
Among the correspondence was a
letter from the association of stationary engineers heartily endorsing
the movement, while letters of regret for absence from Rev. Dr.
Mackay, Rev. R. J. Wilson, Mr. J. J.
Dougan and others who could not be
present, also expressed approbation.
Mr. P. H. Scullen, the organizer of
the society, made an energetic speech
in explanation of his object. He
stated that he had never anywhere
met greater unanimity of opinion in
favor of the work of the organization
than he had met in Vancouver. He
held that in times of Industrial strife
the people had a right to interfere
as they suffered more or less with
the others. The board of directors of
the industrial peace society would be
chosen from citizens to whom no objection could be taken, and they
would offer their services courteously
to settle industrial disputes, but it |
was not necessary either for em- j
ployers or employees to accept the
decision, though if it were not accepted the society would, if they
thought fit, call a public meeting for
discussion of the matter, and he did
not think that either organized capital or organized labor dare stand up
against the opinion of an entire community. As one who had toiled himself, he believed such a movement
was in the best intersts of the workers who 'were always the greatest
sufferers when a strike occurred. He
insisted that only married men
should be on the board of directors
because when a strike occurred they
had to stay with it, while the single
man might pack his grip and leave.
Rev. Father Welsh said that
strikes were just as disastrous as
wars and very often Just as senseless. On the one side there was"greed
and luxury, and on the other side
there was often envy and lack of this
world's goods. He thought it would
be an excellent thing if this could be
averted in any way, and later gave
his approval of the movement by being the first to sign the membership
roll.
A large number signed the roll,
and the following board of directors
was elected:
Archbishop McNeill, Bishop De
Pencier, A. F. Bagley, A. H. McFad-
den, Rev. Dr. H. W. Fraser, H. E.
Baynes, S. M. Eveleigh, Aid. J. G.
McBride, Jas. D. Byrne, R. P. McLennan, W. J. McMillan, Charles Woodward, C.  Spencer, J. J. Dissette.
NEWS OF THE PROVINCE
Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
Improved Roads
Victoria.—The formation of a
Good Roads Association in this city
with the object of raising a fund of
$100,000 to be expended for the general improvement of the roads in the
immediate vicinity of Victoria, and
throughout Vancouver Island generally, is the idea which has been
mooted by Mr. A. O. P. F. Francis,
along with a coterie of leading citizens of Victoria, who have promised
their Influence and financial assistance in this direction.
The idea of a Good Roads Association has bene brought forward on
several occasions in Victoria, but it
has never reached such a stage of ad
vancement as now. A few days ago
a small deputation headed by Mr.
Francis, interviewed the Hon. Thos.
Taylor, the minister of public works,
with the idea of asking the assistance
and the co-operation of the provincial
government in this work.
The proposal made is that a fund
of $100,000 be raised by the voluntary contributions of citizens, and
Mr. Taylor gave the promise of the
provincial government that when this
was done the government would
come to the assistance of the association, and would make a contribution.
The money so raised would be
spent not only in the improvement of
the existing roads throughout the
country, but also for the building of
permanent roads of either asphalt,
cresoted blocks, or of some other similar material. The cost per mile has
been estimated at $5,000, and at this
cost there would be as least twenty
miles of this permanent roadway constructed. The first idea was to spend
about $1,000 a mile on the general
Improvement of the roads on the
Island, filling in all the holes and on
general levelling, thus giving 100
miles of good roads in the near
vicinity of the city.
Archives Department
Victoria.—An important provincial
department change that is not only
of very considerable .interest, bul
which also promises to be fraught
Willi far reaching consequences In
providing a sound foundation for
British Columbia history, has recently been consummated In (lie decision
reached by the government to thoroughly reorganize and extend the
spnere of usefulness and activity of
the Department of Archives. Henceforward it will he directly associated
with the provincial library and under
the administrative charge of Mr. E.
O. S. Scholefield, who will combine In
future the duies of provincial archivist and provincial librarian.
The preliminary work of making a
comprehensive inventory of the present documentary treasures bearing
upon the earlier history of the province (constitutional and otherwise)
is now In progress, and with adequate
quarters for the accommodation of
the department, the archives branch
will, it is sincerely hoped and confidently expected, ere long become an
extra-Interesting and Inestimably
valuable feature of the provincial service.    Not only It is intended to col
lect, arrange systematically, catalogue according to the most approved
modern methods, and securely guard
historical data of every sort bearing
upon the pioneer life of what Is now
British Columbia, but it is further
proposed to print as bulletins from
time to time rare manuscripts in order that the information contained
in them may be the more readily
available.

Merlin's Coal
Merrltt.—Mr. Charles Camse'I,
head of the federal geological survey
party, has been through this district
for the past few days making a careful study of the situation. Mr. Cam-
sell has gone on to the Okanagan
district to complete some research
work before going back to Ottawa.
"This is a great country," he said.
"You can ge enough data together in
a couple of months in British Columbia to keep you busy through the
winter months. I will be back next
summer and wil prepare a map of
this district.
The more important of the mineral
claims through the district were carefully examined and investigations
conducted at several of the coal
properties. That the country is rich
in minerals is borne out by Mr. Cam-
sell's studies, though It is very much
ns he says, coal Is the principal
mineral.
. The largest basin of coal in the interior of ihe province is Bltuate in
nnd around Merrltt, There is lots of
good coal underneath the town of
.Merrllt ns well as under Coutlee. The
Held  has  hardly  l n  touched,   the
companies working only the out-
cropplngs so fur.
"Tliis wns once n glacier country
and the basin of coal extends from
tlie foot of Nicola lake, following n
tortuous line and around for B .li'iii
distance up the Coldwater, running
back and girting the hills and up
Ten Mile creek and back to the lake,
Tor formation is sandstone with alternate layers or seams of coal. The
seams of coal lying underneath Merrill are the same as are being worked in Coal Gully today.
"The coal is of good quality and It
should be very serviceable for coking
purposes. It is the most extensive
deposit that I have encountered for
yours and its value cannol be estimated lis yet.
Discussing other minerals, Mr.
Camsell said he found some gypsum
near Merrltt, bul nol in paying quan-
Itities.    There wns also some copper

and traces of gold. The Aspen Grove
camp was given a good reference and
it consists of mostly gold, copper,
iron and molybdenite. There were
also evidences of iron in considerable
qauntitles near the town of Merrltt.
Turning to the Tulameen Mr. Cam-
sell briefly discussed conditions
there. "Tulameen has the greatest
variety of ores within a small area
of any place in- Canada. There is
gold, coppera, silver, gypsum, moly-
benite, coal and other minerals, and
in good quantity, too. The coal Is
exceptionally good and the property
of the Columbia Coal and Coke company will make a name for itself if
properly handled."

THE FIRST DIVISIONAL POINT EAST OF PRINCE RUPERT
ELLISON
Is the natural supply point for the
grent and wealthy mineral belt of
that district. Coal, Silver, Lend,
Gold and Copper have been located in
large bodies that are rich in ore.
These are all waiting for transports'
tion, when the mining camps will
flourish.
; ELLISON is the first passenger and freight divisional
point east of Prince Rupert.    It will be an important
; Grand Trunk Pacific town with a population of several
thousand before long.   ELLISON is just east of the
fruit belt of Northern B.C.     ELLISON Townsite is a
<>
natural beauty spot.     It is in the dry belt and the
climate is unsurpassed.
ELLISON
Is situated on the banks of the
Skeena River, one hundred and
seventy-two miles cast of Prince Rupert. Ellison is the natural hub of
the Buckley Valley, (the garden of
Prince Rupert). The land here has
proven  this to be rich  for farming.
