George W. Morrow Entertained at Premier Hotel Before
Leaving City.
Citizens United to Pay Compliment
to the Zeal Witli Which He
Worked For Place
G. to. Morrow was on Wednesday
evening tendered a farewell banquet
that could not fail to be most gratifying to him. The banquet was served in tbe Premier Hotel and over
100 representative citizens of Prince
Rupert gathered to show appreciation of the services Mr. Morrow had
rendered the new city. An address
was handed the guest of the evening
early in the proceedings.
Mr. Morrow is leaving with, his
family for California where part of
the winter will be spent. They will
then take up their home in Vancouver, when Mr. Morrow will take active
management of a confectionery establishment.
The banquet opened at 9 o'clock
and was served in the spacious dlningroom of the Premier where J. E.
Gilmore had made excellent provision
for tiie guests. Kauffman's orchestra
was In attendance and during the
evening rendered an excellent programme of music. Mr. Dawes Gil-
more sang most acceptably also and
was forced to respond to an encore.
Mr. Weston contributed imitations
during the evening that were very
much enjoyed.
After a very tasty menu which
was served ln a manner for which
the Premier is famed, the toast list
was proceeded with.
Presentation Made
W. M. Law, the chairman, took
occasion on opening to make reference to the guest and pay his compliment to the work of Mr. Morrow.
He was sorry he was leaving. He had
been a worthy citizen and one of the
most, progressive. In the cause of
charity and piii'lantropie movements
Mr. Morrow had been very liberal.
He had by his enterprise forced them
to eat his meat and his vegetables,
and to read his paper. Now that he
was leaving they were obliged to
come to liis hotel to give him a send-
off. He was going to Vancouver to
engage in business and they would
have to eat. his biscuits and his candies he supposed. Mr. Law expressed
the hope that their guest would enjoy
Mr. Law then read an address
signed by those present which he
presented to Mr. Morrow as a reminder of liis residence here.
Mr. Morrow in accepting the address said he would ever retain it
and witli an address presented by the
people of Essington when he moved
from there it would remain in the
Morrow family to be handed down
to the future generations. He alluded
to the fact that the Morrow family
was not likely to lack representatives.
Mr. Law then introduced the toast
master for the evening, Mr, George
Mr. Tite paid a compliment to Mr.
Morrow's worth as a citizen and the
regret at losing him from Prince Rupert.
A toast list was proceeded with,
the King being duly honored as the
first on the programme.
The Pacific Province
The province of British Columbia
was Introduced by A. Carss, who in
a brief speech alluded to the fact
that he was somewhat new to the
province. He was not a native son
nor an old-timer.
William Manson, M.P.P., In reply
to the toast referred to Ihe fact that
many present had been born in the
province. There were many who
came from the east—some of them
from Bruce. British Columbia was a
nation in Itself. In the north they
had all the advantages that went
with the southern parts of the Dominion. He felt that rBitish Columbia would soon eclipse in commercial
Importance any other part of the Dominion. It was the gateway for all
business which would come by the
Pacific. The statement that the province was never better governed than
It was today he felt would be endorsed by all. Too often they were
apt to consider the government as
doing everything even to making the
grass grow. The government could
only assist to a limted extent. Prosperity was due to the energy of the
(Continued oil Page lit,
The north is opening up with wonderful rapidity and in a manner that
is proving a veritable surprise even
to the most sanguine in the country.
Every day brings reports of new and
greater discoveries in the way of natural resources. To such an extent
is this proving true that one is prepared for almost anything now.
Probably the most important announcement within the present season was that which has been made by
Mr. Smith an experienced mining
man who has just come out of the
Bulkley country with news of the
discovery and location of a vast coal
section within about thirty-five miles
of Hazelton and on the right of
way of the company. The coal is of
excellent quality, equalling that of
the Crow's Nest Pass, and there
seems to be abundance of it.
The find is of the greatest importance to this city as it will bring
within a very short time an abundant
supply of fuel within easy reach of
the place. If the discovery is anything like what it promises to be the
fuel problem in this city will be
solved within a few months. The
railway will be completed to the location of Ihe mines in a little over a

year at most and in view of the needs
of the G.T.P. for fuel there can be no
doubt that if necessary to obtain a
supply quicker the means of expediting the work could be found.
The discovery of this coal measure
in common with so many of the mineral finds made in this province is attended with a romantic story, as it
was purely a matter of accident that
it was revealed.
A party of Swedes, four in number
who were not miners at all, can claim
the honor of flrst uncovering the
coal. Mr. Smith who has had long
experience in mining, happened by
the merest chance to hear of it and
has made full investigations and is
delighted with the outlook. Mr.
Smith is well known in the interior of
this province. He is one of the locators of the Crow's Nest Pass coal
fields and places this recent discovery as not even second to that body
He had been in Cobalt and attracted
back to the province of British Columbia by the reports from Stewart
lie started for the camp. On reaching here lie was induced to go up the
Skeena and is not sorry now that he
did so.
His search in the upper country
was for quartz propositions and he
spend some time Investigating the
prospects. Then came this coal discovery and now Mr. Smith has nine
miles of area staked and will take
the necessary steps to secure it.
His intention is to develop the
property himself as it is so easy to
work that he anticipates no trouble.
The outcropping where the coal has
been found is within fifteen minutes
walk of the location of the G. T. P.
line and the prospects are that the
measures extend right under what
will be the railway line.
A fifteen foot vein is in sight. The
coal closely resembles the Crow's
Nest Pass product, Mr. Smith says,
and an examination by others qualified to judge of it, reveals the fact
that that taken right from the exposed portion is of as high a quality
as that taken from the main workings of the Vancouver Island mines.
A slope can be sunk right in the
coal and the mining of fuel will start
with the beginning of operations. The
results as far as Prince Rupert is
concerned cannot be overestimated,
if the discovery in any way assumes
the proportions promised the city
may have coal delivered by train
load lots inside of a very short time.
The new find is only about half way
from Hazelton to Aldermere. The
demand for coal for the railway company's purposes alone are such that
that corporation would take steps to
get to a producing mine just as
quickly as possible so that there is
nothing likely to stand in the way of
a limited supply at least within a
comparatively short time.
Mr. Smith has examined the other
coal measures in the Telkwa and at
.Morrice Creek. He says the coal is
of a splendid quality. It is coking
coal, very similar to that found in
the Crow's Nest Pass. It will make
good steam coal also and good household coal.
Thomas Jefferson is making good
progress on his property and has a
good vein. There is a fine showing of
coal in the country which is to be
opened up by the G. T. P. and there
should be no lack of fuel.

Hon. Richard McBride Will Visit Prince
Rupert Next
Tentative   Arrangements   Are   Made
For « Short Stay in the
By the Prince Rupert on Wednesday, Hon. Richard McBride will arrive in the city to spend a short time
here inspecting the work that is in
progress here and discussing with
representative citizens of the city and
surrounding country the requirements of the north. The representative of the district, William Manson,
M.P.P., has received word that the
Premier will be able to remain over
only until Thursday night owing to
pressing business in the south.
It has been the desire of the Premier to visit Prince Rupert all summer. He had on several occasions
made arrangements (o come, but
other business interfered. Now he
finds that his visit will have to be
a very short one. He will not visit
Stewart on this trip, finding it impossible to do so.
The arrangements made by the
local member in connection with the
visit will include a public meeting on
Wednesday evening, which will be
held  in  the Empress theatre.
During Thursday Premier McBride
will have an opportunity of inspecting the government wharf and various parts of the city. He will also
meet the city council when matters
affecting the relations between the
government and the city will come
up. An opportunity will also be afforded to meet others who wisli to
bring matters to his attention.
On Thursday evening a smoker
will likely be given in honor of liui
Premier by the Conservative Association and supporters of the government will be invited to attend this
meeting, when Hon. .Mr. McBride will
have an opportunity to address them
on questions of the day. The steamer Prince Rupert, it is hoped may be

Premier to be present at this gathering. Tliis will he held in Mclntyre
These arrangements may have to
lie altered somewhat in order lo suit
the convenience of the Premier, but
due notice of the final arrangements
will be given.
Tiie city council on Tuesday evening will consider the questions that
they will present to him for consideration.
Miss E. M. Gleeson entertained a

has been the practice during the
summer. The closing hour will be
half an hour earlier also.
There was a report from the light
and telephone committee at last evening's sitting of the council recommending the turning over of about
fifty poles that were too short for the
lighting work to the telephone department. Aid. Mobley explained
that they could be used as recommended.
Two petitions were referred to the
streets committee last evening by the
city council. One asked for a 10-
foot plank way on Eleventh avenue
in section eight from the junction
of Hays Cove avenue and Conrad
street. The other was from McLaughlin & McLeod asking permission to put up a sign.

For Consideration—Will

Aid. Lynch at last evening sitting
of the council raised the point relative to raising the grade of Third
avenue. It would cost about $150 or
$200 to raise the buildings. The
property owners, it was felt, should
bear the expense. It was found difficult to get the assurance in all cases.
The committee felt that it would he

the expense. The place was needed

pursued, but it may as well be said
that the truth probably is that Arabl
Pasha, like most well-to-do fellahin
—for he was a pure fellah by birth—
had half a dozen acres as so In his
family, and that he annexed a certain amount of waste land adjoining
and was given a title to it by Said
Pasha, the Viceroy before Ismail, in
whose favor Arabi stood high. At
the time of the confiscation the whole
"On returning from a day or two
spent at San Stefano in vain endeavor to see the prime minister, who,
perhaps not unnaturally, was particularly busy at the hours of my
visits," writes R. Hulme Beaman, "I
found a letter waiting for me in a
familiar Arabic handwriting. 'My
dear and honored friend,' it ran, 'I
welcome you on your return to Cairo,
and hope that, you will come and
have a cup of tea with me at Heluan j may perhaps have been worth, at an

you whatever day and time you may claimed, would not be perhaps very

compliments I under which Arabi  Pasha now hon
estly  labors is a very common one
"Although Ahmed Arabi Pasha lias
long since been little more than a
vague memory, British readers may
be interested In hearing Hie present
situation of the man to whom Egypt
indirectly owes its present transformation, and, therefore , I have
thought it worth while to interleave
this letter as a ghost from the past
between those that have appeared
and are to come on the present state
of Egypt.
"As soon as the most torrid heat
of the day was over, I drove to Bab-
el-Suk and took the train which now
runs hourly, and sometimes more
frequently, between Heluan and the
capital. Very shortly I was asking
a cabman If he knew the house of
Arabi Pasha. He professed to do so,
and, in fact, took me to a former
abode of the once famous colonel,
and from there was directed to the
real address. The house stands on
the extreme edge of the desert, outside Heluan proper, and as soon as
I stepped down from the carriage
the usual scurry began inside which
takes place whenever a male visitor
unexpectedly presents himself. A
couple of minutes were sufficient for
all the gentle sex to disappear, and I
was invited in, to be met at the threshold by a tall, thin figure in a white
caftan and a small skull cap, who
embracd me with effusions and led
cue to a seat on the divan. I had
heard from many people that Arabi
Pasha was in a sort of second childhood, but, physically at least the
former rebel is still a fine specimen
of a man at seventy.
"I never thought to see you again,
my friend," he said, "after these
many years, nineteen in Ceylon and
nine now in Egypt. All the rest of
us are dead now except All Fehml
Pasha. First Addul AH went and
then Mohamed Fehmi, then Mahmud
Sami's wife, after which he married
Yakuh Sami's daughter and had four
more children. Then Mahmud Sami
died in Ceylon, and when we came
back Tulbeh Pasha did not live long.
So only All Fehmi and I are left. All
Fehmi's house, which you lived in
and fought the confiscation, has been
sold for thirty thousand pounds. But
he did not get much of it. Still he
has enough to live on comfortably.
As for me, you know I have fifty
pounds a month, and I give ten
pounds each to my three grown-up
sons and my two married daughters.
Altogether I have now fifty children
and grandchildren alive and two are
dead. I ought to he better off because my property Is now worth at
least six thousand a year. I have
written to King George and to the
Khedive and to all the ministers, but
run get not even an answer, except
a regret from the King. I owe it to
him that I am now in Egypt. When
his Majesty came to Ceylon as Prince
of Wales I stood up before him and
said: 'Now that I have seen you,
Prince George, I am no longer a
slave," and he nodded, with a grave
imile. I said that my only wish was
to return to die In the land of my
fathers, and he nodded again. A fortnight afterwards came the order for
our release from Kandy."
This property claim rather astonished me, as I had myself been more
or less In charge of all his family
nnd goods whilst he was in prison
and departed, and I had never heard
of so valuable lands.
"Von remember, Pasha, when you
were sent into exile, how Ihe Princess Nazi! made up a parcel of
slothes, with a mosquito curtain and
a prayer rug, which I sent down to
you at Euez with Mr. Mark Napier,
as youhad no money and no belongings?"
"Yes, I remember It well; but that
had nothing to do with my land,
seven hundred acres, that then
brought In nearly three thousand a
year and would now producve double. Instead of fifty pounds a month
I ought to be receiving five hundred,
or else get my land back. It waB
not stolen by me, but Inherited from
my father, and granted me by Said
Pasha, my first lord, and It Is unjust
that it should be taken from me,"
This was too sore a subject  to be
witli Orientals, who never can allow
more than one punishment for a
crime. Arabi Pasha accepted his exile
witli comparative cheerfulness, and
would also have stood before a firing
party witli equal fortitude, but that
his land should be confiscated in
addition is an incomprehensible
hardship. And being a fellah with
the love of the soil bred ln his fleBh
and bones, the loss is even more bitter.
To divert his thoughts I began
talking about the cotton crop and the
worm, knowing that this was a subject after his own heart.
"They will never get rid of the
worm and never have good cotton
crops again like the old ones. Nowadays, If you take three cantars off
a feddan you consider it a good yield,
hut in 1881 I myself saw twelve can-
tans from a feddan. There was a
kind of cotton that we used to call
the 'bamia cotton,' that grew flowers
all the way up Its shoots ten feet
high. It was not very white, but
gave enormous crops. But where are
your twelve cantars today? The average is probably not more than two,
and why? Because the ground is
water-logged. You see clover now
growing up to May, whereas it used
to be ploughed up in March. The
earth has not time to get baked
through by the sun, which kills the
worms. The fellah still ploughs his
land twice or thrice, but all in a week
or fortnight, perhaps, because he
is in a hurry to take three or four
crops off it."
I asked him if he took any further interest in politics, and he replied
that he did not. He could not, in
fact, even if he wanted to, as he was
still an outlaw and had not citizen
rights, not being able to buy or sell
land or to mix on equal terms with
his fellows.
"So I stand on one side and let
others work If they will. In his report, Lord Cromer says that my
movement was directed against the
brutal oppression of the Turk, and
Colvin said the same. I wrote to
Lord Cromer to thank him for having recognized my motives, and to
point out that I was still suffering
from tbe tyranny of the Egyptian
government. But is there an EgypT
tion government, and it is not England that has to right wrongs? However, Lord Cromer replied that he
was sorry he could do nothing for me
now. And everybody English I wrote
to said the same, whilst none of the
Egyptians ever took any notice of my
letters. Have you seen Mr. Broadley
lately? He is a good man, who does
not. forget his friends. He always
kept up his correspondence with me.
Now that his mother is dead, two
years ago, I dare say he will come
out here again."
Here a long wisp of a girl, with
henna-dyed hair and clothed solely
in a chintz shift, brought in a tray
with tea nnd biscuits, and we battled
again over the famous Broadley trial
at which I assisted to watch the case
on behalf of the British government,
with Sir Charles Wilson.
The house In which Arabi Pasha
now lives belongs to one of his "sons-
in-law" (which term Arabl used In
English, of which he lias picked up
a certain amounl), Tewfik Bey, son
of an engineer nnd member of the
Mixed courts. One of Ills sons Is
imployed in the police, with Harvey
I'asliu, al .tl! a month, but tbe others
have not been able to find work.
Arabl said that his name was sufficient to debar them; but I rather
doubt this being the case. One of the
younger hoys Is now at the Gordon
College al Khartum, and two of the
girls have married fairly well. The
sun westering behind the Nile warn
nd me that time had flown, and I had
already missed the train I Intended
lo return by. So, with many pressing apeals to come back again, I
wns allowed to depart, and driving
across the sand I looked back and
saw the tall, white figure standing on
tiie balcony and waving a good-bye

How Fruit Growers View the Position
of Affairs in That
This Season/Secretary   Says,   There
Has Been Handicapping of ]). C.
Mr. R. M. Winslow, secretary of
the British Columbia Fruit Growers'
association, has made the following
report to his association.
Dear Sir.—Re shortage of labor
In British Columbia.
The executive of his association
after full discussion at a recent meeting, came to the unanimous decision
that the labor question has been the
most pressing one confronting our
fruit industry.
This year our fruit districts have
been much handicapped by lack of
labor for the harvesting of their
bumper crop. The canneries and jam
factories have had their output curtailed fifty per cent, largely for lack
of labor. The cost of labor Is now so
high that the majority of our fruit
growers have found their profits materially reduced, in some cases seriously so. Irrigratlon projects and
municipal enterprises requiring labor
are being retarded or are not even
being undertaken because of the
scarcity of labor.
In the timbered districts of the
province, as is well known, land
clearing has been almost at a standstill since about 1902. In the dairy
and general farming districts the
labor scarcity is one of the most
pressing problems.
British Columbia Is at the present
time very favorably regarded i|
Great Britain as a place for the Investment of capital, but in too large
a percentage of recent instances the
knowledge of the actual labor conditions has prevented Investment. Intending settlers with means are being
deterred from purchasing because of
the unduly high cost of development
and agricultural and fruitgrowing
An increased fruit crop, such as
can be normally expected next year,
will find conditions muoh more acute
than this year, entailing greater costs
in handling the croy. A few figures
on costs in Oregon arid Washington
may be interstlng. On Vashon Island,
our foremost competitor In strawberries, the manager of the association informed me that they figured
on growing a crate of strawberries
for 30c, picking for 30c, packing 4oj
22c, and paid 20c for the crate. The
average price received per 24-lb crate
this year was $1.30, and the acreage
in berries at this price is increasing.
In Hood River the manager of the
union informed me that it cost them
to grow strawberries 30c to pick and
pack 50c, and crates cost 20c. Any
strawberry grower who compares
these costs and prices with ours will
see what a handicap our high cost
of labor is. In Puyallup, the most
important raspberry section in Washington, it, cost, according to the manager of the association, 40c per 22-
lb. crate to pick, the cost of the crate
was 16c, the average price received
for berries f.o.b. the cars was $1.55,
at which price and costs the acreage
is increasing. Our raspberry growers
should note these figures. In Puyallup, high class day labor, white, costs
$2 for ten-hour day, and labor per
month received $40 with board; man
and team, ten-hours, $5.
In the Rogue river valley, Southern Oregon, a team costs $4 to $5 a
day; day labor $1.50 to $1.75, labor
by the month, $30 with board; I v the
year, $20 to $30 a month, wi
hoard. The average cost of packing
apples Is 6c to 7c a box, the boxes
cost 10c to lie and growers figure
that they can produce apples and
load them on tho ears at a cost of
Tide per box for No. 1 applet*.
In the apple districts of Eastern
Washington prices are somewhat in
advance of these, but as a rule prices
for labor and boxes are 25c cheaper
than in British Columbia. Our selling prices must be based, nevertheless, on those of our competitors in
Oregon and Washington. This means
that before next season we should
have made at least some progress In
solving the labor problem at reasonable prices.
While Ihe fruit grower and especially the small holder, who cannot
directly import labor In quantity, Is
most effected, It is quite true that all
our agricultural industries are being
retarded from lack of labor.    No or
ganization which aims to develop any
part of British Columbia can afford
to ignore this most pressing question.
More labor is especially essential to
the growth of our dairy, poultry and
fruit industries. The question is so
large and so important that every
influence should be brought to bear
to Insure that action is taken to procure the necessary labor.
The secretary of this association
has been directed to collect information from all sources calculated to
show the handicaps imposed upon us
by our lack of labor. This information and the evidence of prominent
fruit growers over the whole of the
province will be presented at the annual meeting of this association held
in Victoria in January next. The
recommendations of the association
will then be presented to the provincial government and any other action
which seems advisable will be taken.
Your co-operation in the solution
of the labor question is asked ln the
full confidence of a cordial response.
There are many opinions as to the
solution. There can be but one opinion as to the urgent necessity for concerted action.
Sum   of   $15,000   Pledged   For Advancement of Operations
The feature of the closing of the
British Columbia Sunday School convention held in Vancouver was a
practical blackboard demonstration
of the best method of gathering subscriptions, conducted by Rev. Hugh
C. Gibson. On this blackboard had
been drawn 150 squares each to represent $25, that is, the first payment
upon the $100 fee required for life
membership in the Sunday School
Association. Cards were distributed
on which those desiring to become
life members might write their
names. These were handed in to
Treasurer C. E. Mahon, while Mr.
J. W. Spencer officiated at the black-
hoard, placing a cross In one of the
squares as each life membership
came in. Rev. Hugh C. Gibson In
the pulpit acted as auctioneer for the
sale of squares, each of which meant
practically the gift of $100 within
the course of four years. In less
than an hour each one of the 150
squares was occupied by a cross, and
$15,000 had been pledged for Sunday school work In the province of
British Columbia.

Ex-King Manuel of Portugal   is With
His Uncle the Due d'
His Kinsman is the Pretender to the
Throne of Prance and Hopes
to Iteign
ExKing Manuel of Portugal has
taken up his residence in England,
and at the moment England would
seem to be about the only country
where he would be suffered to dwell
in peace. His mother Is related by
marriage to the royal house ot Austria, but It is doubtful If Manuel
would seek asylum there, since, after the death of Franz Josef, there
are likely to be stirring times for the
Hapsburgs. He is also connected
with King Leopold of Belgium, but
the French influence would tend to
discourage Manuel's presence. In
Spain and France and Italy he would
be persona non grata. The natural
haven for Manuel and his mother is
There he will probably dwell with
his uncle, the Due d'Orleans, at his
beautiful country house, Wood Norton, near Evesham, which is said to
be one of the finest places in England. Then there would beu nder
the same roof an exiled king and an
exiled pretender to a throne. The
title pretender Is usually restricted
to the Spanish claimant, for the Due
d'Orleans never makes any public
claims to his hereditary right as
King of France, yet he believes his
chances of reigning to be excellent.
The Due has no thought of leading a
revolution to overthrow the republic. He hopes, however, that he will
live to see the day when the people
of France will tire of their present
form of government, and will summon him to occupy the throne that
his forefathers as Capets, Valois, and
Bourbons, held for more than eight
hundred years.
It is not his own merits that the
Due counts upon to make him a king.
He is more likely to appear as the
lesser of two evils, the other evil
beiiig Socialism. Under a monarchy,
he says, Socialism can be better kept
in hand than under a republican
form of government. The Due says
that the great financial powers in
France are strong advocates of constitutional monarchy, which is better
calculated to safeguard property
rights than Is a republic. As long
as a Gambetta, a Clemenceau, or a
Waldeck-Rousseau is the virtual dictator the moneyed Interests are satisfied, for which each of these statesmen gained power by making concessions to Socialism, all became its
resolute opopiients once their place
was secure.
The Due d'Orleans is certain that
affairs in France, sooner or later,
will reach a crisis that will result in
his recall, ln Ihe meantime, he Is
very well content to live the life of
an English country gentleman who
dabbles in science and arts and sport,
and whose chief regret is that he
cannot be engaged in military service. He went through the Sandhurst Military college, and there gave
promise of unusual gifts. For a year
or two he was stationed with his regiment in India, and on his return presented himself suddenly In France,
where he claimed the right, as a
French citizen, to do his term of service in the French army. He was immediately arrested and sentenced to
serve six months In prison for having
dlBobeyed the law that forbids possible claimants to a throne in France
from entering the country. He served
his time, but has not set foot In
France since then.
Queen Marie Amelle, mother of
Manuel, Is the sister of the Due d'Orleans, and both she and her son have
visited Wood Norton. Indeed the Due
has entertained visitors quite as distinguished as those that he might expect to receive as king. King Edward and Queen Alexandra have enjoyed his hospitality, as well as King
Leopold. Being a noted sportsman,
he is also popular with many members of the British aristocracy generally. There should be small reason
to sympathize with Manuel If he
takes up his residence with his uncle,
the French pretender. The Portuguese people are likely to be liberal
with him ln the matter of settlement,
and even If he were penniless, the
House of Orleans Is very wealthy.
Young and healthy, with abundant
means at bis disposal, and relieved of
the cares and responsibilities of ruling over a sullen, half-starved people, he might well be congratulated
on his good fortune. If he desires
to make a brilliant match, his eligibility will be considered hardly less
than it was a month ago. Royalty has
shown no particular  desire  to matn
with him, but there is a fine assortment of semi-royalty to choose from.
The Due d'Orleans, a man of less
rank, married into the house of
Earl Grey Pleased With the Gift of a
Wapiti Head to Itideau Hall
In a letter which has just reached
the provincial premier, Hon. Richard
McBride, from His Excellency Earl
Grey, governor-general of Canada,
the following grateful acknowledgment Is made of a fine wapiti (elk)
head recently sent from this province to adorn the halls of the federal
government house at Ottawa, where
It will serve also, indirectly, as a
handsome advertisement of Britisli
Columbia's magnificent asset ln big
game, and, no doubt, excite the admiration and sportsmanlike deal of
many distinguished visitors: —
".My dear Mr. McBride.
"I have returned to Ottawa and
found a fine wapiti head which you
and your colleagues of the executive
council have been kind enough to
present to Rideau Hall, to hang there
as a permanent representation of big
game of British Columbia. I greatly
appreciate this generous action on
the part of your province. I am glad
that the head will hang in Government house during the last winter
of my residence therein, and I trust
this example and liberality of British
Columbia may stimulate other provinces to follow in your footsteps. I

General Synod of Anglican Church Will
Convene in Van-
Choice Between  London,  Out.,  And
Pacific Const Resulted in Favor
of the Latter
The General Synod of the Anglican
church in Canada will be held in
Vancouver next September. This announcement was made In Vancouver
by Archdeacon Pentreath, who with
Mrs. Pentreath has just returned
from a two months' visit to the East.
At the last General Synod the
choice between Vancouver and London, Ontario, was left to a committee which decided in favor of London
on the ground of expense and possible small attendance. Mr. J. Edmund
Jones, K.C., of Toronto, and Archdeacon Pentreath obtained the signatures of forty-three bishops and delegates to the Synod to a petition asking reconsideration. At a meeting
in Toronto, Dr. L. H. Davidson, K.C.,
of Montreal presented the petition
and it is now announced that the session will he held in Vancouver.
The synod numbers about 220
bishops, clergy, and laymen, and
among the latter are some of the
most prominent, professional and
business men In Canada.
The arcbdeaeou states he is confident Vancouver will give this distinguished body a royal reception
and that the synod will be the most
memorable one in its history. Steps
will shortly be taken to arrange a
complete organization to look after
the details. The archdeacon has
pledged hospitality for the laymen
and feels sure that from the number that have relatives and friends
here there will be no difficulty in this

relative to the empire.
Judge Mclnnes, In opening, expressed his pleasure In supporting a
movement for the establishing of a
training ship for hoys In this port,
as such a thing would tend towards
what was needed at all times In our
national life—the moulding of manly
character. It was a pleasure, also,
to take part in a celebration that
made for the development of national
"As a race, we Britishers are inclined to be too cold and phlegmatic," he declared. "I don't believe in
that noisy firecracker patriotism such
as we see in some other countries,
but we are falling short of our opportunities and short of our duties
when we fail to respond to the call
of great national occasions such as
this day celebrates. Not only that,
but we are allowing conditions to
exist in our midst that are sapping
our national life, and I believe the
time has come to speak out. (Cheers)
We see it around us every day. We
cannot visit our cafes or our theatres
without having the flags and national
airs of other countries forced upon
us. (Applause.) I have no fault to
find with the man whose heart swells
when he hears the songs of his country sung in another land; but I do
complain, I do protest against the
men who conduct these places catering to that feeling under the flag
under which they are making their
living. (Applause.) We cannot view
Ihese things without protest, and we
Britishers, when we have occasion to
assert our nationality, cannot sit
down in indifference and let these
tilings he."    (Cheers.)
He continued that we in Canada
were adding to our population at an
enormous rate, and with millions
coming among us from foreign countries to keep our flag, our country
and our king pre-eminent among
them. (Applause.) For his part he
would rather have Canada remain a
population of seven million Britishers than seventeen million non-
Britishers.    (Cheers.)
"If Nelson were alive today," he
declared, "he would say 'The Empire
expects every man to do his duty."
(Cheers.) He continued that in Canada, which he believed was destined
to become the great part'of the British empire, we had a tremendous responsibility. We must continue to
preserve the freedom of those institutions which more than armies and
navies, had made for the true greatness of the empire. We should keep
ringing clear the note of imperialism,
and strangers coming here should Le
made to realize that they are not
coming to British Columbia or to
Canada, but to the British empire.
"There are those who contend that
the British empire Is beginnig to
totter. These croakers are oblivious
to everything but their own miserable wish. (Applause.) The British
empire is only commencing its history. Empires in the past have disappeared, it is true, but they were
empires founded upon conquest and
greed. What a difference between
them and the Britisli empire, an empire founded upon love and freedom
and common tradition. (Cheers.)
They point to the Roman empire.
Well, our own Britain was once a
colony of Rome, but It brought no
strength but rather weakness to tbat
empire. It had to be garrisoned and ;
guarded that it might be kept. How j
different In the British empire! Its
colonies are no longer a drag upon
the mother empire, but whether the;
empire is at peace or at war the j
colonies are her main strengtli and
stay.     I Cheers.)
"In thirty years from now I believe you will see Canada with greater population and greater wealth !
than the old country itself. Austra-
lit will he a good second, New Zeal-
land and Soutii Africa will follow,
and these, with all her colonies,
should make the British empire Invincible. (Applause.) None can
grasp the power and dignity of the
British empire when that day comes.
When that day comes ii will guarantee peace and civilization, not only
io its people, but to the rest of the
world.     (Cheers.)
"Then let us again on this evening
of Trafalgar day draw inspiration

Canadian Government Has Added to
the Collection at National Park
The second shipment of buffalo
from Pablo's buffalo ranch on the
Flathead reservation has been taken
from Ravalli by the Canadian government, and in charge of two government guards. This shipment consists of twenty-nine head of buffalo
and was sent to Wainwright, Alta.i
which is near where the Canadian
national park is located.
The rounding up of Hie buffalo was
a hard and dangerous task, as several
of the outlaw bulls proved very irritable and gave several men narrow
escapes from death. James Lacazar
narrowly escaped a horrible death,
when one of the hulls charged his
horse and gored it before Lacazar
could turn to avoid the rush. Lacazar
wask nocked from his horse and the
bull rushed at him. Three times he
managed to dodge the rush of the
hull and finally reached a tree, which
he ascended after avoiding a rush
that sent the bull some distance past
The animals were brought into
Ravalli, where they were loaded on
Northern Pacific cars and will go
first to Kallispel, and then on to the
Great, Northern tracks to their destination. They were put In fr»m»
wagons about fifteen feet long, constructed of heavy timber. The wagons
did not allow the buffalo much play
and proved a successful method of
transporting them. Several buffalo
became so hard to control that It was
decided to leave them on the reservation, where they will be slaughtered.
The herd consists mainly of cows
and salves.

0. II. NELoON,
Friday, October 28, 1910.
Prince Ruperl seems destined to
have trouble over the lighting proposition, it lias been before the council ever since thai body or men.assumed office and is yet unsettled. A
good rate of progress is being made
on the .station on Market Place and
light should soon he available.
Bul with the coming of the light
will also come heavy costs. The providing of electric light in this city
under the conditions prevailing will
be attended with exceedingly high
charges being necessary. Aid. Mobley, the chairman of the committee
In charge of that department of work
lias never held out any hopes of
cheap civic lighting under the system
to be employed. On the contrary he
has advised that it would cost a lot
of money. This is said to be coming
true and that before the lights are
going the council will be back very
closely to the old Milne estimate
which was submitted early in the history of the city and which was then
turned down as too costly.
After months of investigation it
looks as though the city would go
back very closely to the Milne estimates which were described at the
time as too expensive to allow of its
being used privately as a means of
lighting. v
With magnificent avenues for the
investment of money in the way of
improving streets, putting in water
and providing sewers, it seems questionable indeed if the city of Prince
Rupert can afford to take up the control of the public utilities such as
providing electricity for lighting and
power, tramway services, etc. It is
said that $80,000 will be necessary
before the electric lighting system
is running. What will that amount
represent in the way of a permanent
plant? None will provide us streets
outside of the citizens themselves.
There are companies that will supply
light. The question to be considered
is whether value will be got from the
expenditure of such large sums upon
lighting when every dollar is needed
in order to get the city in shape for
commercial business.

Thai the claims of the ...ncouver
amateur lacrosse team In regard to
the Mann cup are not without foundation Is evident, from the altitude of
Ihe eastern press. The Toronto Globe
comments on the forcical series as
follows under the caption; "Send th"
cup to Vancouver":—
The Vancouver lacrosse team went
home last week feeling that they had
Young Torontos had failed to win
their series, and were not eligible
to play for the cup under the trustees' own announcement. The Malt-
lands bad not won anything, and the
playing of the seniors under the right
of the juniors, who had won in the
city league, was something'more than
a farce. It was an imposition on the
Vancouver team. Of the ridiculous
aggregation passing under the name
of Cornwall, and furnishing only a
practice game for the Maitlands, the
less said  the better.
Where the Vancouver team have
the geratest cause to feel that their
long and expensive journey was useless, lies in the fact that the other
teams allowed to play for the cup had
no right to be in the competition, unless the trustees made some other
condition after declaring to he Canadian Lacrosse association that "the
trustees are now open to accept challenges for the Mann cup from any
club which has won its series with
players who can qualify as amateurs
under the following rules."
Inasmuch as the Young Torontos
did not win their series at all, it
seems only just to the Vancouver
team, who did meet the conditions,
that the trustees should send the cup,
when it is made, to the boys from
the Pacific coast. It will not represent
a chamiponship in any case, since
championships are not manufactured
by the say-so of any self-apopinted
committee, but it is the trophy they
came here to play for, and they are
the only team that seem to have any
claim on it.
After a tour of Australia lasting
upwards of seven months, J. G. Ben-
drodt, a well known athlete of Victoria, who was especially prominent
as an expert roller skater, a rugby
player and an oarsman, has returned
to Victoria.
When he left Victoria, Bendrodt's
idea was to enter some of the roller
skating competitions—speed, endurance and fancy—held in the different
large auditoriums of Australia. The
Victorian, however, found plenty to
do in giving exhibitions of fancy
skating. He appeared in Sydney,
Melbourne and other centres and
everywhere was etndered the warmest welcome.
He participated in one notable endurance race, and did so well that
his reputation was assured, and his
place in the esteem of the sportsmen of the land of the southern
cross attained. His competitor was
"Billy" Eckard, who holds the
world's championship as a twenty-
four hour skater, and against whom
few care to measure themselves. Ben-
drodt, however, was game.
For a full day in the Sydney auditorium the track which makes the
mile in twelve laps, they hammered
away, the crowd coming and going,
and always remaining exceptionally
large. Owing to Eckard's record it
was not thought that the Victorian
would 'be able to finish anywhere
within reach. But they remained together throughout the period specified and only on the sprint, a desperate one at that, was the champion
able to leave Bendrodt. The margin
of his victory was something like
one hundred  feet.
By this time there was a huge
throng in attendance and when the
situation was realized nothing was
too good for the competitors. The
town was theirs, figuratively speaking and one of the results was the
appointment of Bendrodt to the management of an Australian amusement
syndicate, on whose business he Is
now engaged.
Baseball Is this year more justly
called America's "national sport"

Pacific coast has not yet been determined, George Kennedy, of Montreal, who will be the manager of the
Canadian tour, nol giving any information on this score.

will take place at Sohmer park,

ed, When he has finished his Canadian  battles he will  go  south,  Jack
Curley, of Chicago, having undertaken his management in the United

doubt about his coming," said Mr.
Curley. "He signed a year's contract with me just before I left England, and Hackenschmidt always
lives up to what he undertakes. Just
now he Is at a German health resort resting up. He will do no wrets-
llng until he comes across. That Is
part of the contract I have with him.
When he finishes the tour on this
continent he will sail for South Ar-
rlca. It Is said that he has been engaged at the largest sum ever offered
a European wrestler for a tour ln
this country. In conclusion, Mr. Curley said: "First and foremost I want
to get Hack matched with oGtch once

such a match If we can get It."

A new lighting system, tried for
the first time in Vancouver, Is now
being installed In the city ticket offices of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway system, on Granville street. By
this system the offices, though as
light as day, show no electric, gas or
other kind of artificial light.
The new .system, which has been
tried in the east and pronounced the
nearest thing to daylight, works on
the mirror principle. Chandeliers,
with the lights on the upper side
guarded from view by the sides of
the chandelier, throw the light on
the cellng, which In turn reflects It
on the floor. The ceiling in the rGand
Trunk Pacific offices Is of metal,
painted a pure white, which acts as
a perfect reflector. By the new
lighting system there are no visible
lights to bother or Injure the eyes
of the office staff. This system has
been tried In various eastern cities,
In the larger hotels and public buildings, and has been pronounced a
i great success.

T. P. O'Connor's Views on the Question
of Local Parliaments in
Noted Irish Leader   Uses   Financial
Position  in   British Columbia
as Reason for View
Albert, Prince of Monaco, again
bowed to the will of his handful of
sbjects and, accepting the terms of
Ihe popular ultimatum, granted the
establishment of a national treasury,
through the operation of which the
revenues of ihe principality and lliose
of Hie prince will lie kepi distinct,
He also agreed to the resignation of
Governor d'Hautefeullle.
Until March 2S last Prince Albert was the absolute ruler of Monaco, At tbat time, upon the insistent demand or the population, he
decreed the election of n parliament
through universal suffrage.
Recently there has been  dissntis-
Ireland's hope, her nearness to the
attainment of self-government, the
need of home rule in England to enable that country properly to deal
with great social and international
questions continually arising, and incidentally an appeal for "Home rule
all round the British Empire," were
the characteristic notes sounded by
Mr. T P. O'Connor, M.P., in his address before the Canadian Club in
the city of Victoria on his recent
The spirit of toleration in England's government of Ireland during
the past twenty-five years he looked
upon as an almost certain augury
that self-government will be extended in the very near future.
His address dealt with far more
than the hopeful outlook for Ireland
and its affairs. He made a strong
appeal for home rule for England,
citing instances illustrative of how
the great social issues in the mother
country can be better dealt with by
what would be a purely local government.
On the question of an Imperial
parliament and its composition he
ventured no opinion, but he stauch-
ly advocated "home rule all round"
as the best means towards assurance
of the future prosperity and continuity of the empire.
The vote of thanks was proposed
by Premier McBride whom Mr.
O'Connor counts among his dearest
personal friends and of whom he Is
a great admirer.
Dealing with the advantages of
self-government In his address, Mr.
O'Connor said impressively: "Do I
want any proof of the success of
self-government? I take up your
newspaper today nnd find an announcement that in British Columbia
you have now a surplus In the bank
to pay off every penny of the province's debt. Nine years ago, I believe the province was almost without credit. Perhaps this highly satisfactory condition of affairs may be
largely due to the fact that you have
had the good sense to choose as the
head of your government, an Irishman. Bul like all members of that,
gentle race, I suppose he wil disclaim al credit and say that your
prosperity Is due to the fact that you
have government of yourselves by

Fernie. — The great evangelical
campaign throughout East Kootenay
Is now in full progress. Rev. Dr.
Patterson, D.D., for a long tine pastor of Cork's church, Toronto is In
charge of the movement and is personally conducting the Fernie meetings in conjunction with Mr. to. to.
Weaver, of Ada, Ohio, who has
charge of the musical part of the exercises. Dr. Patterson was for a long
time pastor of Bethany Presbyterian
church of Philadelphia, and numbered among his congregation Mr. John
Wannamaker, the well-known Sunday school worker and once a cabinet minister in the Washington government.
Mr. Weaver is wel known to Fernie churchgoers , having been connected with the great revival held
here a year ago last April. The
meetings here were opened in Knox
church last Sunday evening and will
continue for at least two weeks. The
large new church was filled at the
flrst meeting, and as all the churches
are dispensing with their regular
weekly meetings the church is sure
to be well filled every night throughout the week.
The   reverend   doctor   directs   the
and stage agent, meteorological observer and justice of the peace. He
was a shareholder in the Waverly
Hydraulic Mining Co., and Its secretary for many years.
In him the old time telegraphers

New Westminster.—The adoption
of the single tax system promulgated
by Henry George, by the city of New
Westminster is advocated by Mayor
Lee and if he is re-elected to the
position of chief magistrate of the
city for another term this is probably
one of the first matters which he will
bring up for consideration by the
new city council and the citizens generally. The system in its entirety is
not favored by the mayor, but only

company of the latter organization
will construct a mill, to cost $1,000,-
000, at Crofton to exploit the 52,000
acres of timber land in the Cowichan
Valley, purchased by the Securities
company from the railway corporation
The deal was made some time ago,
but arrangements for the erection of
the mille at Crofton have only recently been completed. One hundred and
fifty acres of land have recently been
purchased on the north boundary of
Crofton townsite, adjoining the old
smelter property on Osborne Bay.
Docks will be constructed along
Ihe long tidal flat which is found at
this point, and a large area will be
piled and used for yards and sidings.
The company will spend nearly
$t,000,000upon the mill, which will
be the largest In the province, and
one of the largest in the world.
Construction of the twenty-live,
miles o (railway to Cowichan Lake
will be comemnced from the Crofton
end. The 52,000 acres of timber laud
in the Cowichan Valley is accounted
about the choicest timber on Vancouver Island.

It is on the programme to cover

throughout the Kootenays and the
boundary country in the spring of
Back of the movement is the committee of evangelism of the Presbyterian church, and thosuands of dollars have been contributed for the
purpose by eastern people interested
in home misisonary work.
Quesnel.—The quartz deposits of
the Quesnel district have at last attracted the definite and serious interest of the mining expert and capitalist. V ry substantial progress has
been made the past week. A painstaking investigation has been made
by a noted mining expert, Morse
Davis, of the gold quartz claims on
the Quesnel river at Deacon's, thirteen miles east of Quesnel.
The party that left for the claims
consisted of Mr. I, H. Shaw, of the
noted firm of Shaw & Campbell, mining brokers, of London; Morse Davis,
mining expert, who for seven years
was chief of the mining engineers for
W. A. Clark of Montana, and for five
years  held   the  same  position  with
of land only and exempts imporve-
ments. This will tend to place a
premium on improvements in the city
while discouraging the holding of unimproved city property for speculative purposes.
Ala; <r Lee i~ »5W lookli g foi two
men qualified to undertake the reassessment of the cit). A short lime
ago he brought to the attention of
the city council the need of a more
equitable assessment and at the last
meeting be was authorized to suggest
the names of men qualified to undertake the work. His idea is that two
experienced men should be secured
who would proceed with the work
forthwith in order that it might be
completed early next year.
To a representative of the British
Columbian Mayor Lee pointed out
that at the present time the assessment of the city is not at all equitable. In some cases property is assessed up to nearly its full selling
value while in other cases only a
small percentage of the value Is assessed. Assessment Commissioner
Frank Broad is doing something on
the assessment for next year and It
is the idea of the council that the
experts engaged should revise the
work already done and place everything on a proper basis.
The tax rate for this year and, Indeed, for some time past, has been
24 mills on the dollars. His Worship
is of the opinion that with the readjustment of assessment of property in the city this rate may be considerably reduced this year. If, how-
over, improvements are exempt from
taxation uetx year the possible reduc-
Nanaimo.—Since the close of the
herring season at the end of 1909, no
less than eleven of the salteries engaged in the business have been destroyed by fire, the last serious blaze
occurring last week when three salteries, together with all their contents, went up in smoke, the property loss amounting to over $15,000.
The insurance companies affected
by the loss believe the fires to have
been of an Incendiary origin and
have offered a reward of $100 for information leading to the conviction
of  the party  or parties  responsible.
After Long Fight Question Has Now
Been  Finally  Decided
^,f^"!_He^'?:°^",,,'!e: MOn!nna:'tion in the tax rate is not likely to
be so great. Upon the appointment
of assessment specialists the city
council will decide what proportion
of the selling value of property is to
and George Davis of Victoria, who is
acting promoter.
From what could be learned It
would appear thus far they were
pleased with Ihe showing and it isI be assessed"
most probable that some arrange- [
ment. will be made with the claim
holders on the river to develop and
purchase the holdings.
The gentlemen left In an auto
early Wednesday morning for Victoria, where assays will be made of
samples taken from the outcroppings
and pits. A definite statement as to

outcome will no doubt be forthcoming shortly.

a test vote it has been decided that

The matter has engaged the attention of federal members of the present parliament for weeks. The question was brought under notice by the
government submitting in the estimates a proposal to spend £45,000 on
the establishment of a city in the territory ceded to the Commonwealth
by New outh Wales.
In the house of representatives a
big effort was made to reduce the
item by £1 for the purpose of intimating to the government that members desired the matter of the selection reopened. This amendment was
defeated by a substantial majority
and the appropriation bill was sent
up to the senate.
It was in this chamber that the
real struggle was expected, and members were not disappointed. Every
scheme that could be thought of was
brought into operation to defeat the
intentions of the government in going on with the work of building the

—"the win, tie, or wrangle brigade"
as they are called—that made .the
first hostile move. He proposed to
amend the item which appeared on
the schedule by reducing the amount
by £1.
That started the ball rolling, and
for days the battle went on. Never
In the history of the senate has there
been such an amount of wire-pulling
and lobbing as took place over this
matter. It was well known that the
division would be close. In fact,
from the start a tie was looked on
as the most likely result, and the
most strenuous efforts were put forward to swing the doubtful votes.

there have been no experiments conducted to prove what, are the best
methods to pursue so as to get the
best results. He Is an advocate of
the government placing an experienced farmer on the islands to conduct
oxperimnts and ascertain what Is the
best course to follow.
Mr. Drain In his two years experience has had to do his own experimenting and while the results have
been very satisfactory, yet a great
saving could have been made had
there been exact information along
the lines suggested.
As to the future of the northern
part of the Islands, Mr. Drain thinks
that it will become a great dairy section. The soil is very productive and
in no part of the world has he seen
cattle become so fat on the native
grasses. By the use of ensilage for
winter feeding which is unnecessary
for young cattle the cows could be
made very profitable in the line of
milk and butter.
It is all in the point of view. The

Review of What Has Been Done on Mining Fields About
Local  Paper  Tells  of  the  Development of the Different Prospects
in   That   District
Although the snow Is far up the
mountain sides and has scarcely begun to reach Into the timber the
summer's activity in the search for
and development of the minerals of
the district is about over where preparations are not. made for winter;
and stock may be taken of the results
achieved this year, says the Omlneca
Herald of Hazelton.
In the Immediate vicinity of Hazelton the number of prospects with Indications of becoming shipping
mines with the construction of the
railway has vastly increased In the
past twelve months. Where a year
ago Nine Mile mountain had a known
mineralized area of two miles and a
half long by a mile wide with no
work done beyond assessments;
there are now five tunnels driven
varying distances up to two hundred
feet with every Indication of work
being carried on on three properties
all winter. The net result of this
developmnt has been to establish
thus far the permanency of the veins
and the width and value of the ore.
Small shipments have been made
with flattering results ln one case
where the returns have been received from the smelter. Assessment
work has improved the showings on
almost every one of the prospects and
there is much good ore in sight. Four
groups of properties are now under
bond or being operated by limted
liability companies.
Four Mile hill has been the sensation of the year. At this time last
year only one claim had profitable
ore, always considering It from a
standpoint of railway transportation,
and the owner did not know it until
assays were made late In the winter.
Starting on a foot of ort In a shaft
as the principal showing when the
bond was taken early in the spring,
this year's operations have uncovered
the largest body of silver lead ore
yet found in this vicinity, the solid
ore reaching a width of upward of
ten and a half feet on the surface.
Good ore has been found on several
other groups, of five and three claims
respectively, are under bond with
substantial payments made. One
property will work all winter, having
buildings completed and supplies on
Galena ore was discovered at Robinson lake about five miles north ol
town and at an elevation of only a
few hundred feet above the Skeena,
about the middle of the summer and
surface work has been in progress
most of the time since. Several veina
with workable ore have been uncovered and values are very gratifying
to the owners. One of the best features of these discoveries is the low
elevation and nearness to town. Snow
will lie on the claims not to exceed
four months in the year and the
country Is well timbered. Option for
a bond has been given on one group.
The latest discovery Is at the head
of Two Mile creek, not more than
five or six miles from town and establishes as mineral bearing the
western slopes of Nine Mile mountain where nothing has been found
before. The veins are of a good
width and while the ore is of a coarser crystallzation than on other parts
of the mountain the values in silver
are about two and a half ounces to
the unit of lead; which may be called an average for this part of the
Omineca district. These claims are
in heavy timber and at a low elevation, present work being done at
about 2200 feet above Hazelton, near
Hie renter of tbe property.
There Is room for a great deal of
prospecting yet on Nine Mile mountain and Its foot hills. Vacant ground
Is practically all covered with timber or moss and earth and loose
rock several feet deep. This means
work ln uncovering the veins and
that all of them will not be found in
one year.
Another  surprise was the  discovery    of   galena and  copper ore on
Rocher de  Boule mountain  and the
location of a number of very promising claims.    The galena carries good
values  in  silver    and  the  copper Is
high grade, one claim showing thirty
per    cent   ore more than  four feet
wide, with small values in gold and
silver.    Two groups are under bond
to American  capital.     Many claims
were staked late in the summer on |
widely separated parts of the moun-1
tain,  too  late  for any  work  to be |
done  this  year.    The  whole  moun-1
tain is within easy reaching distance (
of the railway line and .should be an '
attractive field for prospectors for
years to come.
On Bear river, which empties Into
the Bulkley about twelve miles above
Hazelton, numerous discoveries of
good surface ore were reported during the season, some of them being
of great promise. The ores are galena and arsenical Iron, carrying, besides silver and lead, gold values up
to $25 a ton. With the exception of
one property, where a tunnel was
driven about fifty feet, nothing more,
than surface work has been done.
Serious attempts to undertake the
work of opening up a mine have been
few; the district Is still In a prospecting stage. The high average
value of the ore is attracting attention and prospects offering such great
promise of profit from the extraction
and shipment of ore cannot fail to
receive the necessary funds for development purposes. No property
has been proven at depth but the
work being carried on on Nine Mile
mountain at the present time should
go a long way to determine this point
by next spring.
The handicap placed on the district
by transportation difficulties Is still
keenly felt and the country is years
behind what it would have been had
the Skeena been a more accommodating stream. Supplies have been high,
and the expense of getting Into the
country great. In the Immediate
vicinity of Hazelton more men engaged in the search for mineral this
year than ln all other years put together.
A year ago It was said there was
the making of a good camp somewhere about here: it is now felt that
it may easily become one of the
greatest the province has yet seen.
Suits Against Corporations in United
States to be Heard This Month
Consequences so enormous that
they can hardly be fully comprehended depend upon the outcome of the
two suits which are on the calendar
of the United States supreme court
for the October term, but which may
go over for another term on account
of the recent death of Solicitor-General Lloyd Bowers. The vast and varied extent of the interests InvoUod
makes these two suits ithe most important of any that have appealed to
this court of last resort.
The suits are the ones which the
United States government recently
instituted against the Tobacco Trust
and the Standard Oil. If only the
corporate existence of these two corporations were involved, if only the,
dissolution or the integrity of the
two depended upon the issue, the result, great as these two corporations
are, would be comparatively of little
consequence—would be relatively as
nothing in comparison with what an
adverse decision would mean to the
numerous other "holding" companies
of this country.
When one thinks of the enormous
accumulation of wealth the mind reverts instinctively to the Standard Oil
and its subsidiaries. The capital of
the Tobacco Trust also runs into the
hundred millions. But even the combined wealth of these two great corporations sinks into utter insignificance in comparison to that represented by the 1,198 other corporations and their 8,110 subsidiary companies, every one of which is prima
facie in defiance and under the ban
of the Sherman anti-trust act in
identically the same way as are the
tw corporations against which the
government has brought suit.
It therefore follows than an order
dissolving these two would mean the
dissolution of 1,198 other corporations These 1,198 corporations have
a capitalization that reaches to the
gigantic sum of $13,000,000,000—
an amount equal to about one-third
of the total wealth of the German
Unon the fate of the Standard Oil

Sir Joseph Lawrence Meets Claims Put
Forward By His
He   Advocates    Tariff    Reform    For
Great Britain to Meet
In a ringing speech before the Empire club at McConkey's, Toronto, a
few days ago, Sir Joseph Lawrence,
ex-M.P. of England, and leading
tariff reformer, replied to the free
trade speeches of Sir Alfred Mond,
delivered in Toronto and Oitawa.
So stirred was Sir Joseph by the
Canadian speeches of his old free
trade antagonist that he broke ln
on his holiday and consented to come
to this city to address the Empire
club. Throughout, it was a fighting
speech, full of challenges and indignant denials.
Bolding alleging that Sir Alfred
had "reveled in an orgy of misrepresentation and misapplication of
statistics," Sir Joseph, point by point,
took up and answered the alleged
misstatements of his antagonist.
Applause greeted his mention of
hts old chieftain, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, and his charge that the spirit
of Cobdenism was antagonistic to the
colonial system—as antagonistic 'today as In the days of yore.
Sir Joseph began by pointing out
how impossible it was to reply as he
would wish to Sir Alfred Mond's
speeches, when one of them alone required one hour and a half to deliver It. He said he impeached every
material statement made by Sir Alfred, and If time permitted, he would
like to take them up seriatim: they
could be "proved false up to the
"Sir Alfred Mond's speeches," continued the speaker, warming rapidly
to his subject, "are a colossal and
grotesque misapplication of statistics
to bolster up his free trade cause. I
strongly suspect that they are part
of an organized crusade of political
disingenuousness among the Canadian people.
"Sir Alfred has been revelling in
an orgy of misrepresentation and
abuse of the aims and methods of
tariff reform party with a view to
its reflex action on the impending
general election In Great Britain.
And I would like to say in passing
that even the speeches of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in the west have been exploited by the free trade press and
party. They have been saying that
he was not only a follower of Cob-
den, Bright and Gladstone, but that
Canada herself, under his leadership,
was turning in the direction of free
trade, of which reciprocity is the
first step.
"I have charged that this free
trade crusade is disingenuous, and I
can prove it. Sir Alfred, while apparently guarding himself against
interference with the fiscal system
or policy in Canada, has not hesitated to commend to you the example of
Gladstone and Peel in remitting
taxes. He does this at a time when
you ought to be left free and unprejudiced In the negotiations you are
about to enter upon with the United
"His obvious purpose Is that his
speeches and reception in Canada
may be telegraphed back to England,
showing how much you are in sympathy with free trade, and so enable
the free trade party to thwart the
policy of closer commercial relations
with the Empire."
At this point Sir oJseph analyzed
briefly Sir Alfred Mond's facts and
figures, vigorously challenging him
upon every point.
"He painted England to you as an
Eldorado," Sir Joseph continued,
"nnd boasted that the predictions of
tiie Cobdenite school had been vindicated, whereas the facts prove the
reverse. Every prediction of Cob-
den has been falsified by events, and
today we are presented with the example of a country in which millions
are unemployed and under-fed, and
in which both capital and people are
fleeing to other countries (all protectionist), where both capital and
labor receive a better reward.
"And Sir Alfred claims that the
free trade party is in sympathy with
the colonies as much as the tariff
reform party. But they are Little
Englanders all the same. They have
never repudiated the doctrine of
Cobden, and the people of Canada
ought to be reminded that It was he
who In 1865 wanted to shake of the
"Writing to Colonel Cole, Cobden
said he was interested in the Confederation scheme, because lie thoughl
It 'was a step in the direction of an
amicable separation,' thus  confirm-

Details of the route selected for
the first important section of the Ca-1
nadian Northern Pacific railway,
which, while forming an Important
Integral part of the new transcontinental system, will, at the same
time, be a first link in a railway
from end to end of Vancouver island,
have been announced hy Premier McBride, following an interview last
week with Mr, William .Mackenzie.
As adopted this Vancouver Island
section of the Canadian Northern,
as provided for under the railway
legislation of last session, contains
approximately 153 miles, 100 miles
(>t which was contemplated in the
plan first considered, and upon which
last session's legislation and bond
guarantees were based.
Victoria is the southern terminal
the line taking a course from that
city apparently around Portage Inlet,
the head of the Gorge by way of
Esquimau Harbor and crossing the
Esquimau & Nanaimo Railway at
the southeastern corner of Langford
lake. Thence the line runs due south
to the head of Pedder Bay, making
a curve at that point westerly, and
proceeding via Mathieson Lake to
Sooke inlet, the northerly shore of
which is followed to Sooke riv.er,
which is crossed near the mouth.
Sooke river is ascended on the
west bank to its origin in Sooke Lake
tbe railway skirting the western
side its entire length, then swinging
slightly to the east, and first touching Shawuigan Lake at its extreme
southwest corner. Shawnigan Lake is
also skirted on the western shore,
and this lake being left behind, the
line runs approximately due north,
and crosses the Koksilah river about
eight or nine miles from its mouth.
Swinging to the northwest the line
reaches the Cowichan River four or
five miles above Duncan, and adheres
to the Cowichan for six miles, then
crossing and skirting the north bank
until it reaches the lake near the
mouth of Mead Creek. Cowichan
Lake is followed on its northern
shore the entire length, the line at
the western end of the lake swinging southerly, and then northerly to
the Nitinat river, which is then followed down on the western bank to

From this point the line swings

to its outlet in Barclay Sound,

completing the necessary data, which
must be available before construction proceeds, Instructions have
been given by President Mackenzie to
Mr. T. fi. Holt, financial and executive agent of the company in British
Columbia, to call for tenders just as
soon as the imperative engineering

In the selection of the route Indicated above, the fact has been ever

last night after paying a visit to the
Hazelton district. He went thoroughly over a large pari of the mining area covering Nine Mile Mountain very hilly. He has taken a large
number of samples south to be assayed and on the strength of these
assays will depend his future active

He has taken options on some

further investments, being pleased
with the outlook there.
Finance Committee Will Reconsider
the Mutter
Although the finance committee
reported against the printing of the
building bylaw at last night's council meeting, it was urged that the
matter was of importance and should
be done. Accordingly while the report was only a verbal one, it was
decided to reconsider the matter and
it is highly probable that it will be
Aid. Pattullo reported verbally
that in view of the fact that it would
cost quite a sum to print these bylaws I would be better to allow it to
stand over. He believed the building for the season was pretty well
over anyway.
Aid. Hilditch thought this building
bylaw should be printed if possible.
It. was reported to be working a hardship on some not having these. If
there were not the funds it would
have to stand over.
Aid. Lynch agreed with Aid. Hilditch. She finance committe, e he
feared, did not realize the importance
of having it done. Every architect,
plumber, etc., should have these. He
thought perhaps the printers could
be allowed to have advertising in it.
His worship said that as the building season was nearly over now and
as It would cost considerable to print
these, he favored avoiding paying
more than could be helped.
Aid. Pattullo said that if it, was
absolutely necessary a point could be
strained and the money be forthcoming.
Aid. Lynch saiS that the greatest,
need was in connection with small
buildings, rather than large ones.
Small dwelling would go up. There
were about twenty buildings to be
moved off streets and lanes. He
thought it should be done.
Aid. Pattullo felt that in view of
what Aid. Lynch said he would feel
like having them printed.
Aid. Barrow urged the printing
The matter was allowed to stand
over to be further considered by the
finance committee.

citizens of a country. It was incumbent upon all to do their duty
in building up a country. The guest
of the eevning had done much to
build up this northrn part. He was
a citizen it was a great pity to lose.
Mr. Morrow was a public-spirited
man. In a new city like Prince Rupert they could not have too many
men with great public spirit. He
joined with all present In wishing
Mr. Morrow well. He hoped to see
him eome back and help build up
Prince Rupert.
Guest of tile Evening'
The guest of tbe evening was proposed by G. R. T. Sawle. He referred to ills association with Mr. Morrow In business and said it. was well
to judge a man by his critics. Mr.
Morrow had the talent to take his
critics and use them to his own advantage. He was the friend of all
however. He was the best fighter
the speaker ever met, hitting from
all sides at once.
Tiie toast was drunk with a hearty
good will, followed by "For he's a
jolly good fellow."
Mr. Morrow was greeted with applause in rising to respond. He addressed himself to the chairman, the
toastmaster and gentlemen, and added "I can safely say my friends." He
appreciated the feeling which was
manifest that they thought enough
of him to tender such a banquet.
Prince Rupert had entertained many
distinguished men. It never had a
more distinguished gathering present
than on this occasion. It was un?
necessary he said to introduce himself. He had been pretty well advertised, thanks to the newspapers.
He took criticism, however, as part
of the game. He had not the slightest feeling against those who expressed any sentiments against himself. He regretted leaving the northern country. He felt for the sake
of his family that it was necessary to
move as far as residence was concerned. He had been successful in
many of his enterprises in the country and they al knew of his ventures
that were successful. There were
other ventures that were not successful. He had met in Prince Rupert
and northern British Columbia men
whom he would always respect. His
heart would ever be with Prince Rupert as strongly as ever. He hoped
the time would come when he might
return. At the banquet he was glad
to see some of the first to land here.
Mr. Pillsbury and Mr. Casey were
mentioned and he recalled their landing at Metlahkatla when he was able
to give them the best he had. He
hoped these men would live to see
Prince Rupert a city of 100,000 people. To build up a city required not
only enterprise and labor but capital.
Advice For Citizens
He devoted his attention then to
some points that he thought might
result in benefitting the place, in
order to make the best progress the
city must work band In hand with
the G. T. P. railway. The G. T. P.
could not build a city as well alone
as It could working together with the
city. He believed the G. T. P. should
have an executive agent here. Men
coming here to engage in business
either large or smal requird a man
here who was in a position to deal
with them. There had in the past
been no one to get down to business
with them representing the company,
which was discouraging. Some questions had been handled by the G.T.P.
which had not been handled as a
business man would have done It.
The interests of the city were such
he felt that It should deal liberally
and honorably with the company. The
sooner the questions wntli the G.T.P.
were settled the better for Prince
If the G.T.P. mean what they say
with respect lo spending millions
here he would be liberal. If $1,000,-
(100 would be spent by the company
annually for ten years In the enterprises sugegsled he would as a taxpayer be agreeable to absolutely ex
empt ihe company from taxation. II
the G. T. P. was sincere in this offer
it would be possible to make such an
Mr. Morrow referred to the last
municipal election when be was a
contestant. Fortunately he was defeated. He believed the council had
been given a little too much unfair
criticism. There was not a man in
tbe council he fell but what wns doing his work honestly and believing
the course followed to be in Ihe best
interests of the city. The most serious mistake made was when the
council turned down the newspapers
which should have been helped as far
as possible. There was no medium
that had done more to advance the
.•iiy than the newspapers. Prince Rupert wanted to keep before the world
what was being done here. Tills was
accomplished  only through  the me
dium of tne papers published in the
He appreciated  the kindness now
shown from the bottom of his heart.
He   resumed   his   seat   amid   applause.
Toastmaster Tite interposed that
they were getting to know Mr. Morrow better. If he returned to Prince
Rupert there would be a banquet of
Prince Rupert
The toast of Prince Rupert was
proposed by Aid. Mclntyre who expressed sorrow at the removal of
Mr. Morrow. It, would be a loss to
the city to lose a man of the calibre
of him. He was such a man as the
city needed. They could spare all
the pessimists bill none of the optimists. Mr. Morrow had put up a gallant light at election time. He was
defeated because the people thought
they knew him. He (Dr. Mclntyre)
had been elected because the people
did not know him. Now they regretted the course taken. He believed
in the defeat of Mr. Morrow there
was nothing personal. He had so
many irons in the fire and the people
defeated him because they did not
know that he could play twelve
strings as well as one. It was fortunate he was going to Vancouver
for no one vould live there who
could help it.
Aid. Pattullo in response expressed regret at losing such a citizen as
Mr. Morrow. It was suffering a
large loss also in population.
Aid. Barrow said it was not necessary to agree with a man to appreciate his good qualities. He had known
Mr. Morrow a long time. He had a
name for hospitality as he (the
speaker) had occasion to know.
Will Come Hack
Aid. Hildltch lauded Prince Rupert. He would make his home here.
He was in Vancouver when it was little larger than Prince Rupert was
now although Vancouver was then
many years older than Prince Rupert
is. He believed that in ten years
Prince Rupert would be larger than
Vancouver was now. The first time
he saw Mr. Morrow he admired him.
He was not a quitter. If he was
knocked down he was up again.
A voice: "He's never knocked
Aid. Hildltch felt that in twelve
months he would be back. A man
who lived in Prince Rupert could
not live in Vancouver.
Aid. Lynch did not feel so sanguine that Mr. Morrow would return
until Prince Rupert developed into
a greater commercial centre. A metropolis had a spell to draw from the
frontier. That spell could not be
counteracted in one year. Successful
men sought a large field. He joined
in wishing Mr. Morrow success.
Mrs. Morrow's Part
Dr. Clayton introduced the toast
of the ladies and in so doing made
special mention of Mrs. Morrow. She
had had her part in the early history
of the city. There was a lot coming
to her. She had borne her responsibilities, had shared In the discomforts and had played an important
The toast was duly honored by
singing "She's a jolly good fellow."
J. F. Macdonald in replying to the
toast paid a compliment to Mrs. Morrow who had a special claim to his
esteem as she was Scotch like himself. He pleaded guilty to knowing
little about the ladles. Referring to
Mr. Morrow he said he would have
stayed here until election time and
gone into the council this year had
he been Mr. Morrow.
The toast of "The Industries of
Prince Rupert was proposed by A. J.
Morris, who praised the work done
by Mr. Morrow In the city, and alluded to the field for Investment
Replying to the toast Thomas
Dunn paid a compliment to Mr. Morrow as a fighter. He was never
ready to give up, hut fought to Ihe
last. He was sorry Mr. Morrow was
leaving and said It was a great nils-
Inke on his part to leave the best
part of the province at this lime. Mr.
Dunn said he himself had faith thnt
Prince Rupert would soon be as large
as Vancouver.
Canada's Transcontinental
The toast of "Canada's Transcontinental," was put In the hands of
Vernor W. Smith, who in spite of the
fact that he had only a few minutes'
warning that he was to speak to It,
made a highly creditable speech, and
one which conveyed some valuable
information to the citizens present.
He dwelt, on the Immense cost that
attended the construction of the Pacific end of the enterprise. The cost
of the first 100 miles of that road
had represented an expenditure of
about $7,000,000. In Prince Rupert
itself over $1,000,000 had been spent
and taking Into view the many many
millions which was being spent by
the G. T. P. to get into this city he
felt the citizens should feel satisfied
that the company was going to make
this a great port.    He paid a.compliment to Mr. Morrow's work.
Duncan Ross responding to the
toast added to wbat had been said
with respect to the magnitude of the
undertaking of the G.T.P. The splendid road bed and easy grades would
put the line in a class by itself, and
Prince Rupert as the terminus would
reap the benefit. While he and Mr.
Manson differed in politics they were
good friends. He had to differ with
the gentleman as to the government
of British  Columbia.
Other Toasts
"The Press" was proposed by S.
M. Newton, and was responded to by
Charles Sawle.
Mr. Morrow also added a few
The singing of "God    Save    the
King"    and     "Auld     I. ang    Syne"
brought tiie banquet to a close.
Tenders are to be called at once
by the city council for grading the
remaining parts of section one, and
for a number of other street improvement plans that have been approved
of. The report of the streets committee was on motion of Aid. Pattullo adopted, and It was also moved
that they call for tenders at once also
so as fo expedite matters.
