ALDERMEN OFFERING
Ward Two Has a Number of Candidates
Already in the
Field.
SERVED   DINNER.
Salvation   Army   Helped   Many—En.
tei'tainment Tliis Evening.
Aid.   I'altuiio   Will   Open .Campaign
in Skating [link Tomorrow
\iglir.
With the passing of the Holiday
season the interest in the municipal
election is sure to attract the cliief
Interest for a few weeks. While
the. mayoralty candidates have been
in tiie field for some little time there
has not been a very aggressive campaign on either side, it being understood between the two candidates
that New Years should be allowed
to pass before meetings  began.
Each side has committee rooms
and considerable work has been clone
in the way of organization is is said.
After this week Mr. Manson and
Aid. Mobley will be heard from time
to time on the issues of the day.
Would Serve As Aldermen.
Within tiie last few days however there has been a decided move
made towards getting some alder-
manic candidates in the field. At
first it looked as though there would
be a decided shortage of candidates
in that particular role but several
have come forward in the last tew
days and announce themselves ready
to  serve.
Aid. Pattullo, of last year's council is again a candidate and will address the electors in Ward 2, for
which section he is running, tomorrow evening in the skating rink.
Aid, Hilditch also announces himself a candidate, having been urged
to again stand. Aid. Hilditch is
looked upon as the especial representative of organized labor and
from that section of the electorate
' he is expected to poll a heavy support. Aid. Hilditch is popular with
the public outside of the organized
labor section also and is looked upon
as a winner in Ward 2.
S. M. Newton, editor of The Empire, to the surprise of most of the
electors, has announced his intention to run, most likely in Ward 2.
His severe criticism of the present
administration undoubtedly forecasts the policy lie will pursue in
the present campaign and some lively times are expected when he and
Aid.  Pattullo meet on the platform:
Another candidate who announces
himself for Ward 2 is M. M._ Stephens, who needs no Introduction to
the electors. Mr. Stephens is public spirited, aggressive and clear
headed and should make an excellent
representative. His policy is yet to
be unfolded but as the campaign goes
on the public will have opportunity
to hear him and decide upon his
merits.
There are a number of others
spoken of as candidates who have
not yet made a public announcement.
Among these are W. H. Morrison,
J. A. Kirkpatrick, D. to. Morrlssey,
to. S. Benson and C. W.'Peck. All
of these have been requested to
stand but as far as known no definite
announcement has been made by
them.

The city council will meet this
evening. Owing to yesterday being
a holiday the regular Monday evening meeting of the council was postponed until this evening.
Christmas was observed by the
Salvation Army in a most fitting
manner, the organization taking
steps  to ensure a  Christmas dinner
j to many who needed  it  in the city.
' In addition to serving those who
were not able otherwise to obtain
a comfortable dinner there were
many others who took advantage of
•In' opportunity offered by the Army
and made the Citadel the place for
enjoying a good old fashioned
Christmas dtui'i i.
From 12.30 until 4 o'clock about
175 sat clown. Then the provisions
made for the meal had been exhausted and it was necessary to close the
doors to the visitors.
The object of the gathering was
not a money making scheme, those
partaking of the meal being at liberty to donate what they saw fit to
do at the door as they entered.
When they were not financially able
to contribute it was not expected that
they should do so. About $60 was
taken, which was sufficient to meet
the actual expenses.
This evening the Army will hold
a Christmas entertainment, in the
Citadel. The children will put on
drills, etc., and a Christmas tree
will be unloaded. The officers are
opening a Sunday school the flrst
of tiie year.
A PUBLIC MEETING.
Aid. Pattullo is holding a
public meeting in the Skating Rink tomorrow evening,
when he will appeal to the
electors of Ward 2, in which
he will be a candidate for
alderman next year. He will
also take occasion to speak
in favor of Aid. Mobley as
mayor. Tho public are all
asked to attend.
Aid. Pattullo has been
chairman'of the finance committee during the past year
and will deal, it is likely, with
the flancial policy which has
been  pursued.
WATER IS RESERVED
Government Will Hold Supply  for Do
mestic  Purposes at
Stewart.
Municipality   Shall   Have   (he   First
Call    Upon   the
Streams.
It Is announced that a reserve has
been created by the Provincial Government of all the waters in the
territory immediately adjacent to
and surrounding the Portland Canal
city of Stewart, these waters including Bear lake, Marmot lake and river and .McMullin creek. While no
specific purpose of the reserve is yet
announced, it is understood that it
is the desire of the Government to
be in full control over these waters,
so that in the event of Stewart becoming incorporated by its citizens,
the municipality shall have first call
upon the water for its domestic and
power requirements, this being the
practice followed with respect to
Prince Rupert.

FOR DREADNOUGHTS.
Dock Planned to Handle Leviathans
of the Navy.
The Clyde Trust lias applied to
the secretary for Scotland for a provisional order to construct a tidal
dock and graving dock at Renfrew.
The tidal dock will embrace thirty-
two acres, and the graving dock will
considerably exceed 1,000 feet. Tho
graving dock will be the largest in
Britain, and is specially designed' to
take in huge Cunarders and the largest Dreadnoughts. The cost is over
five million dollars.

All railways in Western Canada
are ordered by the railway commission to reduce their freight-tariffs so
not to discriminate against Regina
and Moose Jaw in favor of Winnipeg.
Owing to the great scarcity of potatoes in Manitoba railways have

FOR NORTH TRADE
Another Steamer  Has   Arrived on the
Coast to Enter
Business.
Solum,  Formerly  High  Class  Yacht,
Is to Ply in These
Waters.
With tiie passing of Christmas attention is naturally drawn towards
the coining season. The prospects I
(or 11)11, with the beginning of the
| year practically upon the city, are
indeed bright, There is wider attention being drawn to Prince Ru-,
pert every day and as the date for
the coining through of the G. T. P.
approaches still greater must be the
attention diverted this way.
The coming season there is every
reason to anticipate will see 'more
marked rapidity in tile way of railway construction. .More labor is
offering and the railway company is
reported to be determined upon
faster  time being made.
In the outside world there is no
mistaking the sentiment towards the
future of this city. Those who have
had an opportunity to visit the different parts of Eastern Canada and
the United States within the past few
months state Unit all eyes are tinned
to  this  city.
Two prominent citizens who had
au opportunity to judge have recently stated on their return here that
the outlook is of the most gratifying
character.
J. II. Ivugler, a recent arrival who
is here to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars, siiys flint throughout the United States there is the
most feverish feeling manifested
with regard to Prince Rupert. There
is a steady demand for information
respecting it. The G. T. P. is cor-
culuting literature with exact Information on the subject and inquiries
are constantly being made by Investors.
(1. H. Collins, of the Fish and Cold
Storage company, found similar conditions on a recent trip be made and
lie looks to a big rush here this coming summer.
Scarcely a mail reaches the city
that The Journal lias not requests for
information about the place or the
country back of it from people who
want to come in from the most widely separated portions of the continent.
A united effort on the part of
the citizens to help along the good
work to counteract the knocking
with respect to climate, etc., will
make this the best city to live ill
on  the  Pacific coast.
KISPIOX   MAIL.
Post Office Has Been Opened at That
Point—(lood   Service  Arranged.
Instructions have been received
from the postal authorities giving effect to the establishment of a post
office at Kispiox. Hugh Taylor has
been appointed post master, and also
has the mail contract. Following
is the schedule proposed by the officials:—
From May 1 to October 31, to
leave Kispiox every Monday at 8
a. m.; to deliver the mail at Hazel-
Ion post office and convey return mail
to Kispiox with all despatch.
From November 1 to April 30, to
carry mails as above every alternate
Monday.
AGANST JAPS.
Mr. Barnard Introduces Hill to Shut
Orientals Out of Fisheries.
Mr. Barnard, the Conservative
member for Victoria, B. C, has Introduced a bill into the Dominion
House of Commons designed to put
the Japanese fishermen on the coast
out of business. The bill would enact that no licences can be issued to
fishermen who are not up to the
physical standard required for naval
militia.
He said that of 4,00(1 licences issued by the Government 85 per cent.
are held by Japanese, whom he described as small, sunder-sized men
who under his bill could hot qualify
for licences, with the result that their
places would be taken by white men.
The bill was read a first time.
That the 'business men of the
south are fully alive to the importance of the trade that is being rapidly
developed between Northern B. C.
ports and Prince Rupert and other
northern cvVqji '-s shown by the ar-
i'ival constantly of hew vessels to'
handle the business. The latest vessel to arrive is the steamer Selma,
which was formerly the palatial
steam yacht Santa Cecelia of the late
Marquis of Anglesey. The Selma
arrived at Vancouver from Plymouth,
England, after an eventful voyage.
While in the Atlantic she ran into
heavy gales and reached Montevideo
short of fuel after burning part of
her interior fittings. The steamer
was bought by Capt. Polkinghorne,
who brought her out, John Mortimer and another, and is to be placed
in the northern coast trade.
The Selma, formerly known as the
Santa Cecelia, was formerly the pleasure yacht of the Marquis of Anglesey. The Santa Cecelia was built in
1SS1 by Elder & Co., of Glasgow,
and was such a luxurious craft thai
the bill presented to the marquis was
$380,000. The Santa Cecelia was
sold at auction after her titled owner died and for a few years, beginning with 1897, the Santa Cecelia
was used for quiet and decorous
cruises by her new owner, Sir Thos.
Sebastion Beasley. In 1905, the
yacht, which had lain at Havre, suddenly disappeared, and in a few clays
it was learned that the cashier of
a prominent Paris bank had left his
trusted position at the same time.
As a coincidence, the bank found that
$825,000 in English sovereigns was
missing, as was also one of the most
popular actresses of the French
capital.
Several weeks later the Santa Cecelia, with the collide and the missing gold on board, was discovered at
the port of Bahia. off the northern
coast of South America. There was
an arrest, and the banker who violated his trust is now serving a fifteen-
year term in prison. The gold had
been cleverly concealed within a
bathtub buit beneath a secret flooring.
Since this occurrence the ownership of the Santa Cecelia lias changed
rapidly, but a series of misfortunes
attended each change, it is said. Last
April the vessel was sold to her present owner, Captain Charles Polkinghorne, who is also the captain and
navigator. Withdrawn from registry in the yacht club de lux, the yacht
was rc'christened the Selma, and after some slight changes and alterations was started on her trip to Victoria,
The Selma is a trim little craft,
well engined and able to steam at
1 2 knots if necessary. On the voyage from Plymouth the little steam-
■ r jogged along at a 9.03 gait.    The
Selma came by way of the Straits of
.Magellan and on its 14,500-mile voyage encountered a number of heavy
gales, through all of which the
yacht   emerged   unharmed.
The living quarters on the Selma
ure well arranged and wonderfully
roomy lor the size of the vessel.
Two of the staterooms are provided
with baths, to reach which, however, it is necessary to raise a trapdoor in the floor. Staterooms with
Roman baths are rare, even on big
liners, although the Selma's tubs arc
Roman in location only.
The Selma at the time she was
built was the finest craft of her class,
and noble ladies and gentlemen of
Europe many times made merry on
her in the sunny Mediterranean.
The vessel is 152 feet long, with
22-foot beam and has compound Condensing engines which develop 80-
horse power. The vessel was launched thirty years ago, but so trimly
is she built and so thoroughly that
time has made little difference in
her sea-going qualities.
The Selma left Plymouth August
20. In the Atlantic, while weathering a heavy gale, her steering gear
was carried away, and only good seamanship in making quick repairs
prevented a more serious accident.
in Smyth channel, off the west coast
ol' South America, the vessel was in
the ice for fourteen hours. The
'.prlii is manned by a crow of sixteen.

RECIPROCAL TRADE

Point.

Exception Taken to Method of Ascertaining the Population of
Canada.
Proposition for Closer Relation Between
Canada and Australia.
Antipodean   Dominion   Is   Pnvornbly
Inclined to Ihe Proposal According  to   Report.
Tiie proposal for reciprocal trade
conditions with Canada, which is
likely to take practical shape in the
Dominion, if, according lo the cabled
account, the resolution to come before the Ottawa Parliament next
month is adopted, has been taken
up by the Commonwealth Government, says a Melbourne despatch.
The trade departmenl is at present
slate of trade with tho Dominion and
as to what It mihgt become in the
event of the establishment of reciprocity. It is gathered that early
action in regard to the question Is
probable.
Tiie conference of provincial premiers is over, without any tangible
result. One cannot but sympathize
with the desire of the eastern maritime provinces to secure fixity of
representation in the House of Commons, but it is obvious that with
Quebec as the pivotal province difficulty must arise in securing an
amendment to the British North
American Act conceding to the
claims of the maritime provinces,
unless some equivalent is given to
Quebec.
By tip. Confederation Act Quebec
for all time lias 11 fixed number of
representatives —66, As 65 divides
into the total population of Quebec,
as ascertained by each decennial census, the qultienl is the unlp of representation for nil i!i" other provinces. After the census ot' 1901 rhe
unit was found 10 be approximately
24,800; next year it Is estimated it
will be 33,000.
In order to keep up the representation in the House of Commons it
is essential for ihe eastern provinces to maintain the same rate of
increase in population as Quebec, ei-
their naturally or by immigration.
It Is regrettable, however, thai Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick .-ind Prince
Edward Island practically get no immigration, tho few hundreds Bettling
in those provinces annually being altogether insufficient to counter-balance Hie Increase in Quebec. Ten
years ago these provinces, as also
Ontario, lost representation, nnd
while ii is quite true thai Ontario
lias been engaged in an active Immigration policy during the last three
years it Is almosl certain thai at
the coming redistribution Ontario
will lose additional representation.
The riit'mn ie Quebec has been to
enumerate as part of the population nf thai province members of
French-Canadian families who have
left the parental homes, Nominally
only those who lime depared from
Quebec within the year preceding the
census day are to he enumerated,
hut it is believed that men and women who have been residing for years
in cities like Lowell, Fall River.
Woonsocket, Saeo nnd other manufacturing centres in the N'ew Eng-
pind states are counted in as part
of the population of Quebec.
The provincial premier attending
Hie conference were not unsympathetic to the maritime provinces men,
bul Sir I.omer Gouln wns the stumbling block. It is given out that
the discussion of the question of rep.
resentatlon was postponed to a future date, hut in the present temper
of Quebec It will not be possible to
reach a satisfactory conclusion. i aa    i su

j   THE OPIUM TRAFFIC    j
The penalties for smuggling opium
are being Increased under the terms
of a new act introduced at Ottawa
to "prohibit the importation, manufacture, sale and use of opium for
other than scientific or medicinal
purposes." The act provides that Informers against opium smugglers
may be rewarded to the extent of
half the fine—the maximum fine is
$1,000. It also provides that after
July 1 of next year every person
who smokes opium or who, without
lawful or reasonable excuse, has ln
his possession opium prepared or
being prepared for smoking, shall be
guilty of an offence against this act,
and shall be liable on summary conviction to a line not exceeding $50,
or to Imprisonment not exceeding
three months, or to both fine and imprisonment.
The new act, which is to take the
place of that passed in 1908, provides that every person is guilty of
an indictable offence, and liable to
Imprisonment for a period not exceeding two years, or to a fine not
exceeding $1,000 and not less than
$50, or both fine and imprisonment,
who imports, sells, manufactures, offers for sale, has in his possession
for sales, or lakes or carries, or
causes to be taken or carried from
any place in Canada to any other
place in Canada, opium for any other
than scientific or medicinal purposes.
Another clause provides that "one-
half of any flue reco\ .Ted from any
person convicted of an offence
against this act may be paid to the
person giving information leading lo
sucli conviction, if so directed by the
magistrate."
If any person charged with an
offence against this act pleads or
alleges that be imported, manufactured, sold or offered for sale, or
had  in his possession  the  opium  in
respect of which the offence is charged, for soientiflc or medical purposes, the burden of proof thereof
shall be upon the person so
charged.
If it be proved upon oath before
any magistrate that there is reasonable cause to suspect that any opium
Is kept or concealed for any purpose contrary to this act in any
dwelling house, store, shop, warehouse, outhouse, garden, yard, vessel
or other place such magistrate may
grant a warrant to search by day or
night any such place for such opium,
and if such opium is there found,
to bring it before him.
When any person is convicted of
an offence against this act, the convicting magistrate may adjudge and
order, in addition to any other penalty or punishment, that the opium
in respect of which the offence was
committed, and which has been seized under the search warrant as
aforesaid, and all recptaeles of any
kind whatsoever found containing
the same, be forfeited and destroyed,
and such order shall thereupon be
carried out by the constable or peace
officer who executed the said search
warrant, or by such other person
as may be thereunto authorized by
the  said  convicting  magistrate.
Any opium now in the custody of
any court, and any opium that may
be seized for the violation of any
law relating to opium, shall be destroyed unless such opium is claimed
within three months after the passing of this act or after such ceizure,
as the case may be, and it is established to the satisfaction of the court
tnat no offence has been committed
in connection therewith, or unless
the court otherwise orders; provided, however, that the provisions ot
the Customs Act shall apply to any
opium unlawfully imported into Canada.
PEONAGE  IX MEXICO.
Third of Country Sulci to Re in Bond-
age by Sympathizer.
Senor Manuel Sarabia, a Mexican
revolutionist who recently arrived
in London from Paris, says that there
Is considerable working class in the
towns of Mexico which is partly literate. It is passionately opposed to
the existing regime, which has made
them the slaves of foreign concessionaires. In the state of Vera Cruz,
for example, there are large cotton
mills owned almost entirely by
French capitalists. The millhands
are paid a starvation wage and are
tied down by an abominable truck
system. Only two years ago a cotton
strike at Vera Cruz itself was barbarously crushed by a military force,
after the work people had been denied rations and even water from the
stores.
But outside tiie towns? Few people in Europe realize the condition
of the masses of the people outside
the towns. History lias nothing to
show that is comparable with it. You
have, perhaps, heard of the peonage
system. It is a system of practically
forced labor. Under it, five millions
of men, women and children, more
than a third of the population of
Mexico, have to endure the most
cruel and terrible system of slavery
that ever existed. Iu all the immense
haciendas, the tobacco plantations In
the Valle Nacional, in the southern
state of Oaxaca, the plantations of
pulque, from which the national
drink is made, the peons are born,
labor and die in bondage. They
are paid no wages, and when they
attempt to escape the authorities return them to their owners, who flog
them unmercifully as an example to
the rest. Two hundred lashes is a
common punishment. These poor
creatures are always ready for rebellion.
WILL   CROOKS   ELECTED,
The Strog Minded  Labor Leader of
British House Again in ominous.
Will Crooks is back in the " 'ouse"
again, as be calls it. Will Crooks,
with Cockney accent, the ready humor and the passionate eloquence of
the man who knows his subject
through and through and who feels
it.
He's one of the great big personalities of British politics. When he
talks people listen. At Winnipeg
they described him as "the best entertainer that ever came down the
pike," and it was true. The audience hurt themselves with laughing
at the grim, Ironical humor with
which the "Old Man from Woolwich"
Illustrated his points. Will Crooks,
to the core, Is a patriot. He rather
startled some of the folk ln Eastern
Canada   by  the   way   he  talked   of
England and refuted in his own adequate, homely phrases the idea that
she was decadent.
"Decadent be blowed; we can lick
the world, if it comes to fighting."
"Germany!" he said, "German is a
joke."
It is rather typical of both men,
that Will rooks and King Edward
were close friends. They have had
many long talks together, and Mr.
Crooks and his "Old Woman," dressed in a faded black dress and wearing a shawl were familiar figures at
his majesty's garden parties. They
were honored guests. Mr. Crooks,
asked about King Edward once, said:
"Take it from me, the King's a good
man; he knows more about the workers and sympathizes with them a
sight more than a lot of the folk who
are always talking about it, and I
ain't alluding to myself neither."
Taking it all in all, the 'ouse will
not lose by yesterday's result at
Woolwich.

Over 3,000 Arrivals in Seven Months.
Japanese and Hindu Immigration.
During the flrst seven months of
the fiscal year, from April to October, inclusive, Chinese arrivals in
Canda totalled 3,536. Of these 2,868
paid the head tax of $500 each, making a total contribution to the public
treasury from this source of no less
than $1,434,000. The number who
were admitted as exempt totalled
668. Of these 170 were classed as
merchants and 417 as merchants'
sons. The latter figures are interesting in view of the investigation
now being conducted at Vancouver,
relative to the admission of Chinese
under fraudulent certificates.
Japanese and Hindu immigration
figures show that the arrivals aret
now very restricted. Since the
agreement entered Into three years
ago with Japan, 1,457 Japanese have
entered Canada, or less than 500 pet-
year. The influx of Hindus, which
was assuming alarming proportions
two years ago, has practically stopped in consequence of the restrictive
legislation adopted by the Government. Since April 1 of last year
only fifteen Hindus have entered the
country.
Figures supplied by the immigration department in reply to a question by Mr. Lake in the House of
Commons, relative to the destination
of the immigrants entering Canada
since 1900, show the following:
Total arrivals, 1,453,391; distributed
as follows: Maritime provinces, 60,-
625; Quebec, 215,906; Ontario, 323,-

IRISH TEACHERS.
Alberta Hns Authorized Trip of Rep.
rescntative to Secure J,OOO Tutors.
That it will be possible to bring
1,000 thoroughly qualified teachers
from Ireland to fill vacancies in the
schools of Alberta and Saskatchewan, was the statement made by W.
J. Stewart, a former professor in
the Drogheda school of science. He
has been engaged in public school
teaching ir. Alberta during the past
two years, and has left Edmonton
to return to Ireland to engage in a
lecture tour of the country with a
view of inducing school teachers to
come from the Emerald Isle eo
Western Canada.
Mr. Stewart has been authorized
to make the trip by the educational
departments of Saskatchewan and
Alberta, according to statistics.
"The Irish teachers who have already come to Western Canada have
been very successful," said Mr. Stew-
art. "They prove very popular in
the rural schools and are much ln
demand in places where vacancies
occur. The teacher's qualification in
Ireland calls for two years In thet
preparatory schools and the teachers are fully as comlipetent as those
who graduate from the best Canadian
institutions.
Mr. Stewart has been engaged in
teaching in rural schools ever since
he came to Western Canada, and has
become thoroughly acquainted with
conditions. For this reason he is
iu a position to select the class of
teachers that will be best fitted for
work-in the district schools of Alberta and Saskatchewan. He Is negotiating with the G. T. P. and the
C. P. R. with a view to securing a
reduced rate for the teachers he will
bring from Ireland to Canada.    The

A healthy stale with respect to
civic affairs is shown by the class
Of citizens who are spoken of as
candidates to serve next year. Ii is
well for a city when such is the case
Maj nothing be dime thai will have
a tendency lo lower the class of candidates but on the contrarj may
Prince Rupert continue to be represented hy men in whom the public

to  with  respect.
Difference with respecl to the policies to be pursued must of necessity
exist but these issues can be fought
out fairly mid a decision readied
without any lowering of the public
sentiment.
NO FOGS  HERE.
While ports in the soutii are lamenting tiie presence of fog which
is causing a serious obstacle to navigation the harbor of Prince Ruperl
can boasi Immunity from that bothersome feature to shipping. Throughout tiie year there lias scarcely been
any fog. The absence of it is so
pronounced Hint, this port may well
boast that it is never fog bound.
Tiie advantages of such a condition of affairs are very great. As
trade develops it will be all the more
noticeable and will undoubtedly be
one of the deciding points among the
great shipping companies in dec'id
ing to make this their port for receiving and delivering Pacific
freight. It is a very usual thing for
large steamers to be held up at Vancouver for hours and even days
awaiting the lifting of the fog. Tljere
is an entire absence of this drawback here.

Criticism    of    Government's    .Action
With   Respect   lo  Popular Soldier.
The cause which Influenced the
Government to place Lord Kitchener
on the committee of imperial defence
are explained in an article in The
National Review (Unionist) by "Ig-
nottts." This article sums up the
reasons which have led to a general
dis!rust of the committee of Imperial
defence  thus: —
"The weakness of the navy programme; the fatuous policy of denuding the coasl of the Mediterranean of Its defences; the Inefficiency
of the Territorials witli their obsolete armaments; tiie lack of horses,
nnd then ilie crowning folly or iii"

Canada's Output in This Department
of   Mining   Is   Increasing.
There was a larger production of
iron ore than in the year previous,
an increased output of pig iron from
Canadion blast furnaces and a larger
production of steel ingots and castings, while the imports of pig Iron
and of iron and steel goods more or
less highly manufactured were greatly diminished, is indicated by an advance chapter of the annual report
on Canadian mineral production last
year, just issued by the division of
mineral resources and statstics.
Although iron ores are of wide
occurrence throughout Canada, being
I found practically In every province,
the development of these resources
has not kept pace with the growth
of Canada's iron metallurgical industries, says tiie report. About 17 per
cent, of the iron ore used in Canadian furnaces during 1909 was of
domestic origin. Much of the coke
and limestone was also imported, so
that   Canada's   iron   industries   are

failed to display initiative or make

that the Government lias played their

The article proceeds:—"The real

Only Lord Kitchener's strength of

say that he carries on hih shoulders

of years, largely dependent on imported rivw materials. The total
production of iron ore to the end
of 1909 only slightly exceeded
5,000,000 tons, while the present
rate of production varies from 300,-
000 to 400,000 tons per annum.
The total shipment of iron ore
from mines in Canada in 1909 was
266,043 tons, valued at $659,316 at
shipping points, about 30,000 tons
more than was shipped the previous
year. In connection with these figures It is noticed that the production of bog ores in Quebec is growing
less year by year, while Ontario
shows a considerably increased tonnage in iron ore shipments. The
total production or pig iron in 1909
was 757,162 tons, valued at $9,581,-
864, 126.327 tons, or 20 per cent,
more than in the previous year. Ontario leads tho rest of Canada with
her large outputs for the lirst time
since   1891.
The total production of steel Ingots and castings in 1909 was 754,-
719 tons, valued at $14,359,800, an
increase of 165,956 tons, or 2S.2 pet-
cent. Canada Is now eighth in the
list of pig iron producing countries

ADELAIDE ARRIVES
C.P.R. Puts Splendid Vessel  Into Service on the Pacific
Coast.
New Model  for Night Run Between
\ ictoria and Vancouver Is nt
Esquimalt.
The steamer Princess Adelaide,
the latest addition to the fleet of
tiie Brilish Columbia coast service
of the C. P. li.., has reached Vie-
painted and made ready to start service on tho night run from Victoria
to Vancouver, relieving the Princess
Royal.
The Princess Adelaide will be superior to any of the company's
steamers with regard to her arrangement and appointment for the comfort and convenience of passengers.
The plans provided for an open fireplace iu the orbservation room of
tiie new steamer, the hol'ow foremast   being    used   as  the chimney.
The Princess Adelaide, which was
built by ihe Fairfield Shipbuilding
and Engineering company, can easily
maintain over IS knots an hour—
she did better on her trials. The
contract called for a sea speed of
ltl knots, she is 20 feet long between perpendiculars, 46 feet beam,
and 17 feet deep.
The Alary is to be completed by
November 1 and will reach Victoria
early next year. Both vessels, after
overhauling, will  go  into service.
With the arrival of the Princess
Mary the new steamer will replace
the City of Nanaimo on the Victoria,
Nanaimo and Comox run and will
also furnish a service, probably twiee-
a-week, between Nanaimo and Vancouver. This service will give the
people of Nanaimo, Beaver Creek,
Hornby island, Comox and other
points on the route every facility for
reaching the mainland quickly and
under the most comfortable conditions.
Both of the new vessels will be fitting additions to the magnificent fleet
maintained on the coast by the C.P.R.
company. Full descriptions of the
steamers follow:
The Princess Adelaide, built by
the Fairfield Shipbuilding Company,
has a length of 290 feet between perpendiculars, a beam of 4 6 feet and 17
feet depth. She is constructed of
steel with cellular double bottom
seven transverse bulkheads, two
watertight flats, and is otherwise as
nearly unsiukable as possible. The
vessel is driven by a single screw.
She has four boilers 15 feet 3 inches
in diameter by 12 feet long, with
forced draught on the closed stokehold system. Her engine is of the
four-cylinder triple-expansion type,
balanced on the Schlick-Tweedy system. The cylinders lire 27-inch, 12-
lnch, 48%-Incb by 39-Inch stroke.
Tiie steam pressure is ISO pounds,
and the auxiliaries, iu the way of
pumps, heaters, etc., are of the very
latesl type. She is lighted throughout by electricity, the dynamos being
1,500 slxteen-candlo-powei lamps,
capable of furnishing current for
The Adelaide is steam-heated
throughout, and has a splendid system of ventilation.
There are 118 staterooms for passengers, a large number of which are
supplied with running water, both
hot and cold. The social halls are
finished in mahogany, and her dining
saloon is beautifully finished in figured walnut. In addition to the dining saloon, which will seat over a
hundred, there is a combined grill
room and restaurant which will also
seat 100 people. The conveniences,
fittings, and style of finish of this
vessel are superior to anything previously designed for the Brilish Columbia coasl service. Uer extreme
draught of water Is about 15 feet,
and her speed on service will lie 16
knots. She has ample cargo rapacity for any of Hie C. P. R.'s local or
northern services, and wil] be a very
useful addition to tho fleet on tbe
coasl.
The Princess Mary, which Is bein^
constructed by Bow, McLachlln t,
Co., Paisley, is 210 fool long. 4 0
feet beam at the dock, 37 feet, beam
at. the water line and lias a deplh of
16 foet. She is well subdivided nnd
has steel deckhouses and decks
throughout, There will be 66 staterooms for passengers, and a nice dining saloon finished in mahogany and
satlnwood. The social hall, smoking
rooms, etc., will all bn beautifully
done In hardwood, and she will have
all modern conveniences, Including
riming water in the staterooms, Thii
motive power will consist of two
boilers 16 feet in diameter by I? fnut
lone with forced draught on toe
closed stokehold system. The Mar>
will he driven by 'win p.crew« actuated by two sics f pngitiFS. lilt
cylinders being  ioki.'i, 27 inch t.r.c,
44-inch, by l'0-iu..-lies. The mcai.
draught of the steamer will ij.j about
11 feet, and he- speed will be 11
knots on servlse. Th:,i boat Is being
built to class "100 Al" at Lloyds.
SEALSKIN PRICES.
The sealskin sale held recently at
Lampsons in London at which the
total catcho, over 3,000 skins, of the
Victoria Pelagic fleet, the United
States government take of 12,000
from the Prlbyloff rookeries, and
catches of British Columbia-owned
schooners in the South Atlantic and
Antarctic, about 16,0000 or 17,000
pelts in all, were offered, showed no
advance in the prices over last year;
in fact the general average will show
a decline in Ihe price of the Behring
sea sealskins and there was a falling off of 10 per cent, in the price
of South sea seals. The average
price brought by the Behring sea
skins was $28 per skin, somewhat
lower than the average last year,
when the majority of the skins
brought $28 to $30. With the smaller amount of skins taken this eason
it was anticipated that the price,
which has been advancing for the
past few years, would have been
higher this year, and a number of
skins were bought in Victoria when
tiie coast catch was landed for $31
and $32, the buyers anticipating
that there would be a sharp advance
in price this year. A speculator
paid $34 Tor the 660 skins of the
confiscated Japanese schooners Sakal
and Kinsel Maru at Dutch Harbor
last April,
It is expected that the same fleet
which went out last year will comprise the Victoria sealing fleet during tiie spring season soon to start.
The schooner Pescawha is now signing a crew and is expecetd to leave
soon after the Christmas holidays for
the California coast in command of
Capt. Balcolm with a full complement of white hunters.
To the Electors of
Ward 2
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: —
At the re request of a number of

A NEW ADELIADE.
The contract has been awarded
for a new Princess liner, practically
a duplicate of the Princess Adelaide,
for the Victoria-Vancouver route, by
the C. P. R. to Swan, Hunter & Wig-
ham, Richardson, of Newcastle on
Tyne, the firm which built the Prince
Rupert and the Prince George. The
new steamer, which is being built
to alternate with the Princess Adelaide on the Victoria-Vancouver
route, leaving Vancouver at. midnight
for Victoria, similarly as the Princess Adelaide will leave Victoria at
midnight for Vancouver, is to be
built as an oil burner. In every
other respect she will be a duplicate
of the Princess Adelaide.
REPORTED SALE.
The steamer Petriana is reported
sold by the Northern Steamship company to the Canadian Northern Pacific Fishing company, which recently acquired the Pacific Whaling company. The price' paid is said to
have been $75,000. The Petriana
will be nseil as a lender to the whaling depots of the company. The
Northern Steamship company will
bring a larger passenger and freight
steamer from the United Kingdom
for the northern trade.

COUNTED OUT ON NINE.
Unfortunately, perhaps, or fortu
nately, just as you may happen to
view it, the moving pictures of the
recent encounter between Owen Moran and Battling Nelson will not
settle decisively the argument as to
Whether the Durable Dane was
counted out. The Dane insists, and
will make it a part of his stock in
trade wherever he goes, that he was
winching tiie count and could have
been on his feet.
No matter that every newspaper
critic ai I lie ringside and others who
were following closely what was happening heard Referee Benny Solig
say, "nine, you're out," the Dane
will stand by his guns, and, nab
urally enough, as there are thou
sands who did not see the fight, he
may gain some support. It was hoped
the pictures themselves would settle the controversy—that they would
show the referee tolling off the count.
The first exhibition of the pictures
in California or in the west, a press
rehearsal that was held for the benefit of the newspaper men, was held
yesterday, and still the controversy
can go ahead.
"When you come tc that eleventh
round," shouted Jimmy Coffroth, to
operator, "turn slowly so we can
watch  for the knockout."
So slowly that It was possible lo
walch everything that happened in
the lasl. round, lelling the story of
the final downfall of Battling Nelson, was reeled off. As the llege-
wlsch lad went down the last. time,
the small group of spectators counted wiiii Sellg, timing themselves
witli the »ipc of the referee's arm,
"(inc. two. three, four, live, six, seven, eight, nine."
That was all there was to il. TeS-
lii'y as reporters can thai Sellg wenl
the rul] limii of the bout Itself, the
moving pictures show that liis arm
hi at back and forth bul nine times.
it Kives Nelson a chance to argue,
nnd you will hear him from one
ocean lo (he oilier.

THE OLDEST PAPER
Official Gazette of London Has Passed
Into New Hands for
Publication.
Another System of Conducting It Has
Reen Adopted by the
Government
London's oldest newspaper, the
London Gazette which has been for
over 150 years in the hands of members of tbe Harrison family, is to
have new printers and publishers.
The announcement draws attention
to perhaps the most curious publication in existence, a publication which
is at least unique in the journalistic
world.
The following singular features
characterize The Gazette: Besides
being the oldest newspaper of the
present day, it has the smallest circulation of any. Its shape and its
type are obsolete. And strange as
it may appear it has no editor or
editorial staff.
Since its birth in the days of the
great plague The Gazette has been
the property of the Government.
Originally a patent was granted to
some Individual, giving him authority to produce The Gazette, which
he published in his own way, retained the proceeds,but paid to the Government a stipulated sum every year
for the privilege. Discounting slight
modifications the same style of contract has existed io the present day.
Now, however, the Government
has made a radical change. Instead
of receiving from the printers a fixed
sum for the privilege of printing The
Gazette, and allowing them to pocket
the proceeds of the advertisements,
they have decided to reverse the
process, and pay the printers for producing the paper. This change was
Inevitable, for the paper is reputed
to yield a profit of $100,000 a year
from the proceeds of the official advertisements published In its
columns.
Tenders were invited, and as
Messrs. Myman & Son's tender proved lower than Messrs. Harrison's,
The Gazette passed into new hands.
When the court led to Oxford on
account of the plague, the paper was
known as "The Oxford Gazette." It
was soon brought back to be print-
ed in Thames street, London, and the
name was changed to "The London
Gazette." Until two years ago it
was not registered as a newspaper.
When Interviewed, Mr. Harrison
said that "the most exciting times in
the history of The Gazette were on
the occasion of our foreign wars,
when the Government's newspaper
was the recognized organ for announcing the lists of the killed and
wounded. The result of the Battle
of Inkerman was known in London
soon after noon on November 22,
1854, and a huge crowd blocked up
the street opposite our premises
waiting for the publication of The
Gazette. During the Crimean War
despatches arrived at all hours of
the day and night, and at whatever
hour they arrived extras were published. Bach minister received a
copy and then the ambassadors and
each of the club houses were supplied.
"1 was sitling alone in my office,
it being Saturday afternoon and the
the staff having gone for the day,
when the news of the victory of Alma
reached London. No papers would
be published until Sunday, but the
Duke of Newcastle was anxious to
make the news known at once. 1
accordingly offered to set up the telegram in 'Die Gazette and send copies
round to each of the theatres, with
an order lo the managers to stop
the performance and make the announcement. At tiie Drury Lane and
the other leading houses there were
stirring and dramatic scenes when
the news arrived. In the meantime
1 took a cab and hastened to the
.Mansion House to acquaint the lord
mayor."
Mr. Harrison is proud of the fact
thai over the long course of years
during which his flrm's Dame haa
been associated with The Cazett., no
official Becret sent to il for publication lias ever leaked oul prematurely, although his employees numbered
seve    , thous ind.
He ddes p Intlng the official announcements and advertisements under Acts of Parliament, ii also publishes all state events. For example, the accession of the King was
announced formally by a special supplement of The Gazette.
WHERE GOLD GOES.
Thirteen Hundred Tons Were Mined
Last Year, Hut Quickly Vanished.
"So you and .Meyer have sel up a
marriage agency?" What capital
have  you?"
"I put two hundred dollars In the
business and Meyer his six unmarried daughters."
More than 1,300 tons of gold were
mined last year, according to the
British home office. Much of this
precious metal has already vanished
as completely as though it had been
taken from the ground. What becomes of all the gold is one of the
perpetual mysteries which no government ever has been able to solve.
Enormous amounts are supposed to
be hidden, or bunried, in the various
countries. Much of the gold turned
Into jewelry is practically lost to general observation. The rich and the
noble put away their most precious
gems for state occasions. They are
scarcely ever seen by the public. The
gold used in decorating the palaces
of the world is virtually lost to the
general view. Even the gold taken
by the banks and bankers as their
coin reserve is often hidden in their
vaults  for years.
The gold mined last year is valued
at, $450,000,000. The British Empire supplied 60 per cent, of the
output. Of this proportion, one-
third came from the 1'ransvaal and
15 per cent, from Australia. The
United States turned out 22 per cent,
of the total production.
The civilized nations of the world
are now burning up about a billion
tons of coal a year, says the British
home office. More than a million
tons in addition is wasted in the
operation of mining, so that the store
of "black diamonds" is being used at
a rate which may bring about the
extinction of the visible supply in the
present century.
The United States is still the greatest coal producer—her mines contributing one-third of the total sup-
lily. Great Britain is next, and Germany is third. Then come, in order,
the Austro-Hungarion Empire,
France, Russia and Belgium. Almost
three million persons are engaged in
mining eoal, which is as many as
are engaged In all other kinds of
mining and quarrying. More than
a million coal miners work in Great
Britain.
In iron, as in coal, the United
States is still ahead of all the rest
of the world as a producer, with an
output of 16,000,000 to 26,000,000
tons a year. The German Empire
stands second, Great Britain third
and Spain fourth, with four and a
half million tons.
America leads, too, in the highest
proportion of loss of life from accidents in mines and quarries—3.42
per thousand persons employed. The
lowest rate is in France, 0.95 per
thousand employees. It is a curious
fact that while Great Britain mines
only two-thirds as much coal as the
United States—206,000,000 tons, as
against 377,000,000 tons—there are
1172,000 coal miners in Great Britain
and only 600,000 in the United
Slates.

TO  RESTORE  MISSION
Historic Structure Erected in 1707 in
Californit to Be Renovated,
Resolutions requesting the aid and
interest of the entire state in the
restoration of the old Mission San
Jose, founded in June, 1797, by the
Franciscan frairs, Ysidro Baronallo
and Augustin Merin, and urging that
an electric line striking the foothills from Hayward, be built to this
place, have been adopted by the
chamber of commerce of San Jose,
Cal., which is co-operating with Congressman Joseph R. Knowland to
have the Native Sons' organization
take hold of the restoration project.
The old mission, now slowly crumbling to pieces, with the historic
gravestones in its burial rounds tumbled to the earth, was the cradle of
Alameda county, for, when It was
established ai the close of the eighteenth century, there was not a single
white man living in the entire county, then given over to the Indians.
A small adobe chapel was the flrst
building erected by Ihe fathers and
here, during the first year of its
existence, thirty-three baptisms and
live marriages were recorded.
By the end of 1799 the missionaries had 154 Indians under instruction and had solemnized twenty-nine
weddings, as well as baptized 162
persons. From then iiniil 1834,
when the Indians were liberated
from the control of the missions by
a it acl of congress, the .Mission San
Jose, sheltered al the foot of .Mission
peak, exerted a continually widening
Influence over the southern portion
of wlinl became Alameda county in
1853.
One wing of the old church is still
standing today, and it is proposed to
restore the old edifice, using this
wing as a model. The church was
wrecked by the earthquake of 1808,
though the five bells, which then
'mug in the tower, were uninjured,
I three of them are still in service

INTERNATIONAL HOCKEY.
Rivalling the Stanley cup ln interest and far surpassing that celebrated athletic trophy in value, hte
International hockey cup, representing the championship of the North
American continent, Is to be donated
for an annual world's series between
the winners of the United States
a.nd Canadian professional hockey
teams.
When in Chicago recently Dave
Mulligan and George Kennedy, the
Ottawa and Canadian magnates, received the support of the Yankee
clubs In their endeavors to place
hockey upon a business basis, and
the proposed international cup ;ls
the ultimate result of a talk which
Mr. Mulligan had with several of
the Windy City promoters.
A series of five or seven games
will be played for the trophy, and
there Is no doubt but that with New
York, Chicago, Pittsburg, Toronto,
Montreal, Renfrew or Ottawa taking
part ln the final round that the
attendance figures would go above
dreams.
champion followed his advice and
now Is satisfied that his brain is all
right.
BRAIN ALL RIGHT.
Jack Johnson has found something
that pleases him more than his racing autos of the heavyweight championship. The boss of the pugilistic
world has been somewhat mentally
disturbed since an Eastern doctor
told him he was on the verge of a
nervous breakdown. However, the
worried look has gone, the "golden
smile" once more Illuminates Ms
face and he is bubbling over with
good spirits. The reason for the
champion's happiness is two X-ray
pholograps of his skull which are
proof to him that he is not losing
his mind.
Jeffries' conquerer explained in de-
til the reason why he had his brain
photographed. -In 1902 he knocked
out Joe Butler in a Philadelphia
ring. After the fight a supporter
of Butler hit Johnson over the head
bare. When the stories of his
threatened nervous breakdown
were circulated, a friend in Philadelphia wrote the champion and
asked him to have an X-ray photograph taken of his head to see if
there was anything pressing down
blow  received  nine  years ago.   The
LOST ON TRIP.
The annual report of the National
Athletic Associalton of Montreal
shows that the champion lacrosse
team of the National Lacrosse Union lost $905 on the trip west tn
quest of the Minto cup last fall.
As this is charged up In the financial
statement, lacrosse brought In less
than $5,000, given approximately as
profits made by the champions This
sum is a small one considering the
tremendous interest taken by the
French Canadians.
The salary list for players was
not a heavy one. With twelve paid
men instead of seven in 1909, and
the season of four months instead
of ten weeks as in hockey. The Nationals paid their players in all
$8,360. No less than $19,350 was
taken In by the champions in gate
receipts, this amount being greater
than anything in the history of lacrosse here, and yet out of this big
sum the expense of running a professional  team  left only  $5,074.
SUNDERLAND'S RECORD.
At the end of three months of the
association football season in the Old
Country there remains only one undefeated team In what are generally
regarded as the principal league com.
petitions. Sunderland has had several narrow escapes, as is indicated
by the fact that many of their thirteen matches to date have been left
drawn, but they have preserved a
fine air of innocence about the meaning of the word "defeat." They had
to meet Newcastle at St. James' park,
Newcastle—indeed a trying ordeal.
The attendance numbered 59,416
persons, from which It can be gathered that the public has sufficient
confidence In Sunderland to realize
that they would make a great fight
of It. The result was a draw, and
it was especially creditable to the
visitors because their famous goalkeeper, L. R. Roose, had travelled
thousands of miles to represent the
Wearsiders, for his home Is in London, and his football entails a long
journey every Friday night. That
he is one of the best custodians in
the country to watch is probably due
to the seemingly dreadful risks which
he takes. He runs out, leaving his
charge undefended, for the very sake
of tempting Providence—at least,
ihat is how the situation appears tc
the spectator. But it Is Roose's
game, and Sunderland will feel the
loss of his daring. The attendance
of practically 60,000 persons »t the
match under notice shows how thoroughly professional football retains
its hold on the masses. Certainly
there were about 66,000 people at a
game between Chelsea and Newcastle
United last year, but that was a
Christmas holiday affair. For any
ordinary part of the season Saturday's crowd must be a record.
NEW TRAINING FLUID.
Tom Flanagan, Toronto's big
sporting promoter, manager of Jack
Johnson, late manager of the "late"
Tom Longboat, and what not, has
his whims. He Is causing a mild
breeze in athletic circles In the
Queen City through his advocacy of
beer for training purposes. Tom
wrote an article in The Evening Telegram recently asserting that the
frothy liquid was second only to
beefsteak for athletic training. He
says he has no Intention of stirring
up any question of temperance or
asking any boy to break in on his
religious or moral scruples. He
maintains that the world's record-

The Aged Worker Is Anxious to Undergo Another operation to
Restore Left  Eye.
Gen. Booth, head ol the Salvation
Army, will soon undergo an operation for n cataract on liis left eye,
it will be recalled thai altho igh
an operation tor a cataracl on hip
rip. i eye some time ago wns temporarily successful, li ' eventually
lost his sight In thai eye.
The growth of ;t cataracl on the
other eye has since blinded 'iin en
tlrely. He lias nol seen for a long

that it will completely restore the

PEACE RIVER LAND
Engineers   Report to Government-
Ft. McLeod Indians Dying Out,
Holiday
Gen,  Booth, Who Is Now Blind.
Having been out for upwards of
four months, .Messrs. Ilernion and
Burwell have just submitted their
report on the Peace river country
to Surveyor-General McKay, of Victoria. This survey and and exploration party has been through a country which compromises some four
thousand square miles. The most
important Heme, of information
which have been collected concern
the soil and the climatic conditions
and these will be invaluable to any
persons  intending to settle there.
The general report of the country surveyed and explored, which
lies for tiie most part on the east
banks of the Crooked and Parsnip
rivers, is to the effect thai it is undulating and is covered with a
growth of scrub spruce, cottonwood,
balsam, small jackpine and alder.
One rather startling note is to the
effect that there are only about ninety-eight of the Slcannle Indians left
near Fort McLeod and that, these
are fast dying out; and in consequence of their hunting for actual
cleaned out, as Is also the small fur-
bearing animal. It. is stated, however, that the streams abound in
fish. The country does not seem
to have the best of soil, it being for
tne most part light and sandy,
though nearer the river banks it
seems  to  improve somewhat.

LOSS BIG ONE.
Estimate I'm al $700,000 as to Properly  Destroyed in Victoria.
In ,i report recently compiled by
H. R, Page, secretary-treasurer of
the Vancouver Island Fire Underwriters' association, and circulated
among the various Insurance companies and others interested, the estimated lass of property, buildings
and slocks in the recent Are al Victoria is placed lit $700,000, while the
lass in the lire insurance companies
for whocli all claims have been
practically adustjed, is put at
$564,000. ,
In referring to the lire and tho
methods by which the lire departmenl fought the conflagration and
commenting upon the work of tho
salt water system, which the underwriters were promised would be finished in September, 1909, the report
commends the department, but says
that it. is hoped thai this demonstration of the possibilities of a conflagration in Victoria will eliminate tho
prevailingidea that a general reduction is to be made in local insurance
lire rates when Ihe salt water, high
pressure system  is completed,
Although Premier McBride has intimated to various' delegations from
lime to time (luring the pasl few
months that legislation would he suti-
milied io Parliament during the
forthcoming session dealing comprehensively with the whole large question of forest conservation and timber tenures ii is scarcely probable
owing to the late receipt by the Government of the report of the royal
commission on this subject thai the
Governmenl will now lie able to presenl during the approaching session
a-composite aci relating to timber
and forestry.
The subject is so large, so implrt-
anl aud so far-reaching in its various phases that time and thorough
consideration must necessarily be
taken in the drafting of final and
conclusive legislation dealing in the
besl public interest with all the different phases of the subject. It is
understood that Hon. Mr. Ross, the
minister of lands is now engaged in
di all inn a forestry bill which will be
submitted tentatively before the
close of the season opening on Jan-
nary 12 proximo, in manner much
the same as the Coal .Mines Regulation Act amendment bill was laid before the House lasl session and subsequently discussed ivi;: ill
terested parties so thai their views
and suggestions nilghl be reduced to
a system and taken advantage ol In
the completion of a measure designed to have a permanent place upon
the statute book as the lasl word
in well considered law dealing with
this   important   subject   in   the   besl
interests of the province and  of the
industry.
In like manner the forestry legislation will probably be submitted for
similar suggestions from all the parties affected, so that the bill as it
ultimately passed the Provincial
.egislaturc maj closely approximate
perfection In Its adaptability to Provincial conditions and the necessities
of the timber  Industry.
In the consideration of the draft
bill the legislators and tlmbermen
will have the advantage of also having before them the very complete
comprehensive and informative re-
, art of .t'.ie forestry commission,
which goes into every phase and detail of tiie subject, with a special
thoroughness, and which is now in
the printer's hands so that ii will be
available for presentation to the
House during the approaching session.

OPIUM   PROHIBITION,
Chinese Imperial Senate Pusses Resolutions  for Abolishing of  Habit.
As a result of the extraordinary
agitation in recent months by Chinese anti-opium societies r.lie Imperial Senate, sitting at Pekin, almost
unanimously passed a resolution
looking to the drastic extermination
of opium  smoking.
The inter-provincial transportation
of opium will be abolished July,
1911. hTe planting of the seed and
the smoking of the product will be
prohibited In January 1912.
The foreign board is also enjoined in the resolution to seek the abrogation of the opium treaty with Great
Britain and so prevent further importation from ndia. By tliis treaty
China agreed not to adopt any measures restricting the importation of
the Indian product for ten years.
