G. T. P. TAXATION
SETTLEMENT IS IN SIGHT
PROPOSITION FOR THE PEOPLE
Basis is Reached Between City Council and D'Arcy Tate
Preparatory to Placing it Before the Citizens
of Prince Rupert and the Railway
Head Office for Ratification
The Grand Trunk Pacific taxation
question which has been the subject
of so much exaggeration on the outside and which in consequence has
worked to the material disadvantage
of this city now seems in a fair way
to be settled. Representaives of
the two parties directly concerned,
the citizens of Prince Rupert and
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company, have reached a basis of
settlement which in turn will have
to be approved by the citzens and
the transportation company's officials. D'Aircy Tate, representing
the company will submit the agreement to Mr. Hays for approval. The
council, representing the citizens,
will then be In a position to ask the
approval  of the people,,
The agreement when it conies to
the people f»r approval should be
heartily endorsed. For nearly a
year this question has been up. The
council both last year and again this
year, the public can rest assured,
endeavored to get the most possible
out of the company. It would appear that the limit has been reached,
The city should close with the company and as quickly as possible remove this from the arena of local
politics where it is liable to be used
In a way to make dissension and
work injury to the city.
Mayor's Statement
^layor Manson was asked what he
had to say relative to the proposed
settlement, this morning. His reply
was contained in a statement which
he handed out explaining tbe situation and the position of affairs. His
statement was as follows:
"The accompanying memorandum
of proposed agreement between the
City and the Railway Company has
been arrived at between the Council
and Mr. D'Arcy Tate, solicitor for
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company, who have been in conference for the last two days.
"The members of the council were
informed by Mr. Tate that the company refused to enter into an agreement on the basis submitted to him
by the city council of last December,
consequently It became necessary to
carry on further negotiations which
sub-
has resulted in the proposals
mitted herewith.
"Mr. Tate has agreed to lay the
full details before Mr. Chas. M.
Hays, president of the company, and
will with one or two exceptions recommend the execution of the agreement by the company, and has promised to give the council a reply by
the 15th of April.
"The council has undertaken as
soon as the agreement has been executed by the proper officers of the
company that tbe same will be submitted for the approval of the ratepayers of the city.
"The particulars are now given
out for publication in order that the
citzens may have knowledge of the
progress made, and when the agreement is ready for submission to the
people the council will be prepared
to discuss all details fully."
Mr. Tate Goes East
Mr. Tate left last night for the
east, going by way of Victoria,
where he has some departmental
business to attend to. He did not
wish to discuss the agreement. Asked
if there was any possibility of the
company agreeing to the $25,000
which was the sum pressed for at
the last meeting with last year's
council, Mr. Tate said "none whatever." He left pleased with the way
in which the negotiations had been
carried on. There had been a good
feeling manifested throughout, he
said. The company desired to do business on the most friendly basis with
Prince Rupert and they should mutually work for the upbuilding of
the city.
The  Negotiations
With the return of Mayor Manson
from Victoria on Wednesday, accompanied by D'Arcy Tate, the
Grank Trunk Pacific solicitor, the
settlement of the vexed question of
the municipal taxation of the company became again a live subject.
There had been considerable discussion of the question between Mr.
Manson and Mr. Tate in Victoria.
Aid. Smith, who was in the soutli on
private business, also was able to devote a little time to the consideration of it before the Prince Rupert
left for the north with all on board.
Further   discussions   were   held   on
PROPOSED AGREEMENT

day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred

i City agrees to appropriately grade such and cultivate so as to get a
i suitable turf with such trees as may be thought desirable, the same

the way to Prince Rupert, so that by
the time the city was reached Mayor
.Manson was fairly well in possession
of the attitude of the Grand Trunk
Pacific on the whole question.
The council met Wednesday evening and in a private meeting exchanged views. In the afternoon the
members of the board again met
with Mr. Tate present and proceeded
to discuss matters looking to the
reaching of an agreement.
The negotiations as far as can be
learned from each side were of an
amicable nature, each seeking the
best possible terms for the interests
he represented.
Before Mr. Tate left the city last
evening the memorandum of agreement elsewhere appearing on this
page, had been mutually agreed
upon. Mr. Tate will submit this to
Charles M. Hays, the president of
his company, and with a few exceptions, the solicitor, it Is understood,
was ready to assure the council there
would be an endorsation of the terms
by the officials of the company.
Sonic Features
From the standpoint of the city
there are many very favorable conditions in the agreement which can
best be understood by consulting the
map accompanying the agreement.
The city is assured of $15,000 a
year by these terms. This Is not to
be reduced by reason of the company alienating any of the property,
a condition which was contained in
the former proposition. The company under this new basis of settlement will always pay $15,000 up to
the end of the term of ten years,
when a new agreement may be entered into.
All land alienated in any way by
the company likewise becomes liable
for taxation by the city just as any
other property is taxable.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Development Company must pay on its holdings and in lieu of last year's taxes
it is agreed that over $6,500 will be
paid to the city on tlie block of land
within the bounds of Second avenue,
Third and Sixth streets in the Grand
Trunk Pacific Reserve. Tills is the
taxation on the 16 mill basis of last
year.
The city gets    sixty-two    parcels
of land in the townsite for various
purposes, including parks, recreation grounds and cemetery. With
respect to the land not subdivided
about Fulton street and Fifth avenue, a conveyance will be made to
the city without restrictions so that
it may be used as decided either for
city purposes or to be alienated in
turn by the city If It sees fit.
Company's Undertakings
The Grand Trunk Pacific agrees
that upon the conclusion of the
agreement a start shall be made
upon the permanent station, the
round-hou^se, engine shops and other
works necessary to a terminal point.
The floating drydock will be commenced within six months and the
large hotel will also be started. All
these, It is agreed will be carried
on with due despatch.
The effect of the settlement cannot fall to be most marked. Business men, dealers in real estate and
all classes have felt the effects oT
the dispute. It has bad an alarming
influence which just, at this stage ot
its history Prince Rupert should desire to see wiped out.
There is little doubt (hat the citizens when the time conies to pass
upon the matter will show their
hearty endorsation of It as the best
terms available.
STARTING THE WORK
Contractors for Marine Departments De
pot  are on the
Ground
Large Force Will Be Busy Within a

THE LIQUOR BY-LAW
Reconsideration of Measure Will Tkea
Place Tomorrow After-
Noon
Aid. Pattullo Is Very Anxious to lie
Present at the .Meeting  to
Record  His  Vote
The final consideration of the
liquor bylaw of tbe city will come
up on Saturday afternoon at 3
o'clock. Last evening there was a
motion to reconsider preparatory to
passing it, but on objection being
raised that the matter should be left
so as to enable the two sides to the
question to be present, It was finally decided to postpone action until
Saturday afternoon.
Aid. Newton moved to reconsider
the bylaw last night.
Aid. Hilditch objected in view of
a motion on record to take it up
Monday night. It would be unfair
to those Interested to bring ti on
now.
After some discussion a ruling
was sought from the mayor, who
thought It would be in order to consider It If the council so voted.
Aid. Hllditch, as the father of the
bylaw thought that he was surely
entitled to have the say In such a
matter.
Aid. Pattullo was anxious to bring
the vote on as he would leave Sunday morning and wished to vote
on it.
A vote being taken, it was decided
lost.
Aid. Hilditch objected to Mayor
Manson   voting except on  a tie.
His Worship said he thought he
was entitled to vote but would look
into the procedure bylaw. In any
event the motion was lost, for If he
had no vole there was one less In
favor of the question being decided.
It was then proposed to bring on
a special meeting so that all could
be present, Aid. Pattullo being exceedingly anxious of having a  vote.
Ills Worship thought they should
meet Aid. Pnttullo as far as possible
and endeavor to have a full board
present when they take It up.
It was finally decided to fix Saturday afternon at 3 o'clock as tbe
hour for meeting.
 o	
Aid. Clayton desired to have the
question of aid from the city to the
Tranquille Sanatorium re-opened at
last night's council meeting. He
proposed a grant of $200. In so
doing he referred to the amendment
to the statutes made at the session
of the legislature just closed In
which it was provided that each mu-
niclpaltly must pay for its indigent
consumptives at the institution. The
question was referred to the finance
com m it tee.

contractors at the city hall. The
situation with respect to labor
was discussed and it is expected

BERESFORD RETIRES
Lord   Charles   Quits   the Navy After
Fifty One Years
Service
Tlie   Record of   tho   Dashing   Irish
Seaman in Country's
Cause
Anheuser-Busch's
K^t*4 ..   ..V-V.-^S
Admiral Lord Charles Beresford,
the most popular British naval officer of the ironclad era, has retired
from the Navy on attaining his
sixty-fifth birthday. Having entered
the service in December, 1850, he
has thus given over f'fty-one years
to the service of his country.
Lord Charles Beresrord's service
career lias been one of exceptional
activity and of great variety. He
was naval aide-de-camp to the late
King when, as Prince of Wales, he
visited India in 1874. In the following year Lord Charles was promoted
commander, and in 'the next ten
years saw all the fighting of his career. At the bombardment of Alexandria on July 11, 1SS2, he commanded tbe 708-ton gun vessel Condor, and by his courageous and effective engagement of the Marabout
fort at close range not only earned
the approbation of the commander-
in-chief (Admiral Sir Frederick
Beauciiamp Seymour), but was also
specially promoted by the Admiralty
tu the rank of captain.
The  Safieh's   Exploit
After Alexandra was reduced Lord
Charles landed and was given tlie
task of organizing a police force to
patrol the town and its precincts.
This he did so well that Lord Woise-
ley attached .-him to his personal
staff. In this capacity he took part
iu tlie Nile expedition for the relief
of General Gordon, and later took
command of the naval brigade, being
In command of the force at the battle of Abu Klea. His rescue of Sir
Charles Wilson, who had himself
got into difficulties in an endeavor
to succor Gordon, once again
brought the name of Beresford to
everyone's lips. He took the little
steamer Safieli, one of the boats that
had come down the river with news
of Gordon's plight, and manned her
with a few men of the naval brigade
and twenty picked marksmen from
the mounted infantry.
The Safieh had to fight ' every
yard or the way. At one point she
had to pass within eighty yards of
a hostile fort; but Lord Charles directed the marksmen and gunners
to fire at nothing but the gun embrasures, and so well was the order
carried out that not a shot could be
fired at tbe vessel until she was 200
yards beyond the fort, and it was no
longer possible to fire into the gun-
ports.
When that distanc? was reached,
however, a shot penetrated the Safieh's boiler, and she had to be
brought to anchor. Immediately
word was got through to Wilson,
who managed to eet past the fort
in the darkness. All day the Safieh lay helpless, fired at by hundreds of Dervishes, and then another ten hours' work, all under a
hot fire, had to be carried out on
the damaged boiler. Early in the
morning of tlie following day steam
was again raised. Beresford set his
course up stream again; hut only for
a short distance. As soon as opportunity offered he swung his little
vessel round and clapping on all
steam ran past the fort again and
picked up the sick and wounded of
Wilson's party before the -Dervishes
had recovered from their surprise.
For this gallant service Lord
Charles received tlie C, B., and was
the recipient of the mosl eulogistic
references from Lord Wolseley,
Lord Salisbury and the Admiralty.
Member for the Navy
l-'r  1874  in  1880 Lord Charles
bad sat In parliament as member for
Waterford. In 1886 he was elected
for Marylebone, being again returned at tbe general election of
1886, In August nf thai year he
took a seat on Hie Board of Admiralty. The Naval Intelligence Department, established in 1887, was
largely the result of his efforts, but
the provision made for Its work did
not satisfy him, and In 1888 he resigned from the board.
In 1898, a year after his promotion to the rank of rear-admiral,
Lord Charles was elected M. P. for
York, retaining tlie seat until the
beginning of 1900, when lie was ap-
ponted second In command of the
Medlterraean fleet, under Lord Fisher. It is not without Interest to
note that although certain critics
found considerable fault with Lord
Charles Beresford for criticising the
authorities while he was on active
service in 1907-9, Admirals Fisher

St. Louis, Mo., U. S. A.
Distributors Prince Rupert, B. C.
ducted a very spirited press campaign on various phases of naval
policy while they commanded the
forces in the Mediterranean.
In February, 1902, Lord Charles
leturned to the House of Commons,
his constituency tills time being
Woolwich. He remained only a year,
however, for in April, 1903, he was
appointed to command the Channel
fleet, having in the meantime been
promoted vice-admiral. He left this
command in May, 1905, to take
chief command in the Mediterranean
and while there—on November 11,
1906—was promoted to admiral's
rank.
His active work did not end with
the Mediterranean command, for in
.March, 1907, he took over the Channel fleet. It was just about this
time that the Admiralty began to
reduce the strength of our commissioned fleets, and the Channel fleet
was shorn of five armored ships and
a large number of destroyers. Lord
Charles was not concerned with the
loss of the armored ships, considering that the Admiralty ought to
know the number required by the
political situation; but he most emphatically objected to the loss of his
destroyers, declaring that a fleet
with no torpedo craft was no fleet
at all, and merely an inviting victim
for an enterprising enemy. He won
his point, and after a few months
the destroyers were restored to the
fleet.
Lord Charles hauled down his flag
for the last time on March 24, 1909,
when the Channel fleet was absorbed by the Home fleet. Admiral
Sir William May took command of
the United forces, and, like Lord
Charles, will hold this, the chief
command in tlie British fleet, for
two years only.
The retiring admiral lias always
been exceedingly popular with all
classes of fleetmen, although the
fact that lie has never held any high
position at the Admiralty—being bb-
Bi ntlally a sailor admiral—has In
many cases prevented the redress of
grievances lie has sought to abolish,
\ matter tor which the lower deck
Is particularly grateful to liini is the
generous amount of leave now given
compared with what was the case
five or six years ago. Always and In
everything Lord Charles has been
the friend and advocate of the lower
deck, and he boasts that he always
found the best way to get the best,
work out of the men was to trust
them.
Lord Charles Beresford entered
the navy In the same year that saw
the laying down of the first ironclad. He leaves in the year that has
already witnessed the beginning of
the first British motor-engined warship.

MUST PAX TAX
United States Citizens Are Required
to Meet Demand for Income Levy
Judge Mclnnes, in Vancouver
County Court, dismissed the appeal
of Captain Gott and two other employees of the New England Fish
Company, against the decision of
Magistrate Alexander that they were
liable to pay income tax In British
Columbia, which was the home port
of their ships. The defence was
that they were American citizens,
receiving their pay in the American
consulate, which was practically
American soil, so that they should
not be taxed on It like British subjects receiving their pay here.
Magistrate Alexander held that
the American consulate in Vancouver was not American, but British
soil, that they earned their money
practically in Canadian waters and
that Vancouverd was their home
port. This decision Judge Mclnnis
upheld.
Mr, Edgar Bloomfield argued the
case for the appellants and Mr.
O'Brian appeared for the crown.

HOUSTON TOWNSITE
The Owners Are Receiving Many Inquiries mid Applications
for Lots
Although Houston Townsite has
been on the market only a few days
the owners have received great encouragement, and they are justified
in their belief that it will be a great
money maker for the early purchasers as well as for themselves. They
have sold a number of lots already
and have received a large number of
enquiries. Houston is situated in
Pleasant Valley, which Is a part of
tlie great and famous Bulkley Valley. It is tlie natural supply point
and shipping point for that districl,
nnd aside fro manythlng else, nature
will make it a big and prosperous
town, in addition to what nature
will do Houston will be the market
tor an Immense territory which will
he thickly populated witli farmers
and stock raisers, and It will most
likely be the shipping point for the
great conl fields along the Mori-Ice
River. The Grand Trunk Pacific
railway is surveyed through the
town as shown on the map issued by
the company and it will be the first
town of any size east of Aldermere.
The climate of Houston will also be
ana ttractlon to the future population, as it cannot be excelled. The
winters are not severe, In fact, the
cattle graze on the hills the year
round. For fuller particulars see
the advertisement in this issue and

SAFETY DEVICE
Patent  by   Winnipeg  Man   Will   Do
Away With Dangers at   Rail-     .
way  Crossings
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
A model of a remarkable device
which has been patented by Wlnni-
peggers for the purpose of affording
greater safety at level railway crossings, is on view in Winnipeg. Those
who have seen the model working
claim that it will revolutionize anything now in operation for the safety of the public at level crossings.
The railway companies have for
some years been looking for safety
apparatus which will afford the
greatest protection at level crossings
for botli man and beast, and several
prominent railway men have expressed tlie opinion that Winnipeg
genius has given to the world such
an apparatus in Hie "Coulter Safety
Level Crossing Device.'
* The machine is remarkable for its
simplicity and for its accuracy. The
device is an automatic one. The invention consists of a series of short
flrnges set at intervals at a distance
from the crossings on the outer side
of one set of rails only. On the engine striking the first flange a
warning bell, which Is self-winding,
starts ringing at tbe level crossing,
and continues to do so until the
train has passed.
As soo nas the train reaches the
second flange a semaphore is raised
to the pedestrian or those crossing
the railway and lowered to the train
crew and engineer. At night a red
light is turned to the road and a
white light to the train. The last
flange operates a cattle-guard which
Is lowered and locked down as the
train approaches and raised and
locked again when the last car
passes, thus affording perfect security. The cattle-guard is considered
by those who have seen it to be the,
best yet invented. As the flanges
are placed on both approaches to the
crossing, those met by the train after leaving the crossing servie to rewind the bell in preparation for the
next train. Should by any possible
contingency a signal is to be made,
then a semaphore is raised and a red
light is turned to the engineer. The
whole system is entirely automatic,
no electricity being used. The bell
is self-winding and the light is created by flint steel and gasoline. It
is worked by three cables in conduits placed under tlie rails to a
depth which will afford every protection In the severest weather. The
85-pound standard rail will be used
and the flanges are to be placed at
the following distances from the
crossing: First, that which winds
the bell, 800 yards; second, that
which raises and lowers semaphores
and throws signal light', 600 to 700
yards, and the third which lowers
the cattle guard, 300 yards from
the crossing. A spring is attached
to the cables which practically removes the Impact of the train on the
device.

(i. T. P. BETTLEMENI
Elsewhere In this issue will ho
found the result of Ihe negotiations
for a settlement between the city
and the Grand Trunk Pacific Company with respect to the taxation of
tlie railway lands. The prospects for
a settlement seem bright and it is to
he hoped that nothing will be done
now to upset the arrangements for
carrying through the proposition.
Tlie relations of the Grand Trunk
Pacific with Prince Rupert are very
close. They are, to a certain extent,
partners, sharing the development of
this great northern section of the
country. Everything that will make
for the building up of a colossal
business for the company at this
seaport will enrich the city and benefit everyone who has anything at
stake here.
Last year's council bad this ques-
tfon up. An endeavor was made to
get the best terms possible from the
company. Negotiations have all
along failed, the company refusing
to accept the conditions up to the
present. There can be no doubt that
the best possible has been done by
the city in reaching an amicable arrangement. If the company, therefore, will accept, the conditions as
now settled upon we strongly advise
ratification by the citizens. The
benefits to be derived from the company undertaking the works which
it agrees to do at once will have a
marked effect on the outside world.
Prince Rupert, can ill afford at this
stage of its history to prolong the
dead-lock condition. It is a matter
of dollars to the citizens and not one
of sentiment alone.
This is not the time for casting reflections upon any one. It is not a
time for considering who is responsl-
Ble for the agreement to he entered
into. It. is a time for united action
by those who have the welfare of
the city at heart to see that this disturbing element in the advancement.
iif  the   city  is   eliminated.
The company will pay a fixed taxation  under the terms, for ten years
and in return for the reduction the
city is assured of park lands, breathing spaces and other necessary property  in   conjunction   with   the    city
work.     It   is   exceedingly   important!
that these parcels of land should be:
obtained by the city at an early date. |
The  acquisition   of such  lands  later
on  in   the  history  of places has  led
to   very   heavy   expenditures  on   the'
part of many centres.
The general effect of work being
in progress upon a large hotel, upon
a floating dock, upon permanent ter-
mial facilities in the city, cannot be,
overestimated.     It   will   impress   in-j
tending  investors  as    nothing    else 1
will do.
The agreement should receive endorsement-without hesitation at the!
hands of the citizens.
LILLOOET COMING

Bfflooet, Capt. Musgravo, which has!
been at Esquimau tor the winter,
»!il leave for these waters about the;
beginning of April tor her annual
jurveylng cruise In British Columns waters, sin- will head first for
ffecate Straits and will spend tbe
lummor making soundings and lo-
lattng rocks and shoals which
jhould he marked with beacons or
Bnoys.
The Lillooet will lie exceptionally
lusy tills year, on account of the
laying up of II. M. S. Egeria, and
will probably remain out until November. Within a few weeks she
j-ill commence taking on supplies.
The Egeria, which has been in the
inrvey service for many years, and
has done a great deal for navigation
in Canadian waters, Is still a sea-
worthy old vessel. She was laid up
last winter by the British Government and there is a possibility of
her being secured by the Dominion
Government ior a training ship.
Although much valuable work
las already been done in charting
and marking the B, C. coast, there
are still many localities that are
poorly charted and marked, and It
is to these that tlie attention of the
Lillooet will be given.

convention recently arranged between Canada and the United States,
whereby pelagic sealing is to end
for a term of years, and the three
nations are now waiting upon the
Japanese government for its acqui-

The steamer Moana brought news
from New Zealand that had been received by that government, from
Great Britain for the lease of tlie
Campbell, Auckland, Antipodes nnd

for lease a year ago, but the lenders
were unsatisfactory and protection
was maintained for another twelve
months. Since'then a very satisfactory toiler lias been received from
Great Britain, and another was on

STREET QUESTIONS
Pole Lines in the Thoroughfares Comes
up Before the Council
The Sewerage System on First Avenue is Also a Subject of
Consideration
Two questions affecting the streets
came before the city council last
evening. One was that of placing
elctrlc light poles on First and Second avenues and the other was with
respect to the sewer which was being rendered useless on First avenue near McBride.
The question of the pole lines
was brought up by Aid. Kerr, who
said that the committee to which it
had been referred bad not had a
chance to go into it. He wished the
council to  discuss it.
Aid. Smith explained that Mr.
Love estimated that it would cost
about double the amount to put the
lines along the lanes as it would to
put them in the streets. He thought
they might well place them on the
streets now.
Aid. Hilditch thought It would be
found advisable to put the wires in
conduits In tbe near future. Those
poles would be temporary therefore. He moved that the lines be
put in the streets.
Aid. Newton was opposed to this.
His Worship wanted to know
what the estimated cost was.
Aid. Kerr pointed out that in
lighting the streets it would be necessary to have poles in the streets.
If the wires were carried up the
lanes they would have really double
pole lines.
Aid. Clayton said it was pointed
ont that with both light and telephone lines in the alleys there would
be  interference  between   them.
Aid. Pattullo agreed with the
mayor that it would be wise to get
the comparative cost of the two systems.
The motion to allow the pole lines
in the streets carried.
On the sewerage question Aid.
Hilditch called attention to the fact
that the system put in before the
sale on First avenue was now being
rendered  useless.    In  places it was
above the new grade and in other
places It was broken by the weight
above. He did not like to take the
engineers off the water proposition
to go into it.
His Worship thought the engineers
would have to go Into it, even if
they were busy.
Aid. Pattullo agreed with this,
and Aid. Hilditch said he would take
it up.

BIG   FISH   IN  FRASER
NEW WESTMINSTER — While
blowing the snags at the mouth of
the Harrison river, F. C. Kickbush
accidently brought a sturgeon to the
surface which the Indlnns say Is the
biggest they ever saw. The big fish
was twelve leet in length, two feet
in vertical measurement, and eighteen inches through from side to
side. This will be taken as an indication that the depleted sturgeon
supply in the Fraser is regaining
its  former  prominence.

OUTLOOK OF EAST
Lord Curzon Gives Interesting Address
Upon Important Subject
His  View of   the   Situation in Asia,
Given at University of
Glasgow
in modern times to make an alliance
on terms of equality with an Asiatic
power  (by the treaty of 1905).
"She has consistently led the van
in concession to Asiatic sentiment
or in marshalling Asiatic progress.
All these great advantages must be
sustained with inflexible determination, together with our traditional
armed superiority in Asia—where
necessary on land and everywhere
at sea."
Lord Curzon of Keddleston was
recently formally installed as Lord
Rector of Glasgow University, and
chose for the subject of his address,
"East  and   West."
"To some minds," he said, "the
east is like some beautiful spirit,
whose heavy eyelids are to be always half closed and who nods, with
a half smile on her face, in a land
of everlasting dreams."
They might trace to the Russo-
Japanese war a threefold result. It
had been accompanied by an immense addition to the moral confidence and the self-respect of Asia.
It had given a powerful impulse to
the demands by Oriental countries
for self-government. It compelled
the west to revise !fs formulas of
twenty, and perhaps even ten, years
ago.
Within seven years of the outbreak of tlie Russo-Japanese war
they had seen the Turks in Europe
and tbe Persians in Asia dethroning
an absolute monarch and setting up
a parliamentary chamber; the Egyptians clamoring for a similar constitution; the Indian Nationalists
adopting as their avowed programme
self-government on parliamentary
lines; the Filipinos already manipulating with zest the institutions co-
ferred upon them by America; the
Russian Slavs (who in their acceptance of autocracy had been more
eastern than the east) extracting a
Duma; and, above all—greatest of
wonders—China committing herself
to the summoning of a parliament in
a few years' time.
Lord Curzon thought that the east
was unlikely to accept Christianity,
for two main reasons. Firstly, the
religions of Asia gave what, the
pagan mytholigies did not give to
Europe—a definite and intelligible
theory of the relations of God to
man. This satisfied the spiritual aspirations as well as the day-to-day
requirements of the Oriental. Secondly, the latter saw in the teachings of Christianity hostility to that
revived self-consciousness to which
he clung as  his dearest possession.
Christianity had had a positive
and enduring mission in Asia as regards the influence of education. It
would be a grotesque misleading of
facts to argue that western education had not on the whole been attended with incalculable benefit to
the east.
The seer who could predict' the
relations of Japan and China a century hence wool dhold the key to
the future of the east. Would China
unite with Japan to share the leadership of tlie far eastern world?
Present omens were unfavorable to
the realization of such a policy, for
China still smarted under the recollection of what she had lost to a
rival whom, until recently, she despised.
The horoscope of India was the
most obscure of any of the countries
of the east. Could a western power
situated at a distance of 0,000 miles,
maintain a permanent ascendency in
an Asiatic country to which the rulers only come as birds of passage
for a third of a lifetime, and were
represented   by   a   total     body—the
army     of     occupation   included of
less than  150,000 adult, males, nnd
when tlie sentiment of the east, revived by western  nutriment, was ex-'
eeptlonally   active   in   Its   manifestation?
There  were already many persons!
who answered  that  question  In   the
negative,   but  this  country   had   not I
abated  by  one  lota  its resolve    to
maintain  its supren y    in    India.
Self-government under or within the
British Empire, which was the motto of tiie advanced party, wns nol
at pre enl a reallzabli   Ideal.

FERDINANDS WORK
What    the   Ruler   of   Bulgaria   Has
Done For That
State
Kingdom Has Seen n Marked Change
As   Result   of   His
Reforms
it is doubtful is any ruler of Europe is more popular with bis subjects than is Ferdinand I, ot Bulgaria, whose fiftieth birthday was
celebrated throughout his little
kingdom on Sunday last with great
enthusiasm. And it is doubtful if
any ruler is more deserving of popularity, for certainly none has done
more for the material welfare of his
realm than has the erstwhile prince
of the house of Saxe-Coburg and
Gotha, who without hesitation accepted the Bulgarian crown, or
rather semi-crown when lie .vas well
aware of the dangers his acceptance
would involve.
Bulgaria, as Prince Ferdinand
found it when he arrived in Sofia
in 1S87 to take up the reins of government, was composed of two big
districts slenderly joined together. It
was nominally a vassal of Turkey.
Actually, it had till then been a vassal of Russia. Russia refused to
recognize tlie election of Prince Ferdinand and the other powers took
the same stand. The country was
poverty-stricken, rival factions disputed the government, the army was
torn with dissensions and everything, in fact, was ip about as bad
a state as could be imagined.
Today Ferdinand is recognized
everywhere as the Czar of Bulgaria.
He is received with royal'honors in
all tlie capitals of Europe. His
realm lias become one of the most
prosperous and most powerful of the
Balkan states. It has proudly broken the last ties that bounl it to
Turkey and at the same time has
effected a complete reconciliation
with Russia. The country is intersected with improved roads and
railways. The capital has become
one o ftlie most attractive of all Europe and few cities can boast of
more magnificent public buildings.
And, above all, the population of
the country is thrifty, industrious
and contented.
To accomplish this truly wonderful change in the condition of Bulgaria and her people Ferdinand required prodigies of energy and .skill
and perseverance. It was an uphill
fight but in the end it was crowned
with victory. It was not until he
took the reins from Stambitloff, who
was destined to become the victim
of an assassin a little later, that
Ferdinand's stregth of character and
his fearlessness were fully recognized. Before that time 'it was a
common saying that Stambuloff was
the real ruler and Ferdinand a mere
figurehead. But with the removal
nf the Prime Minister, Ferdinand
went about quietly but none the less
energetically to accomplish the
prodigious work that has earned for
lilm   the  title Of the self-made king.
He is not only an earnest student,
With a special leaning toward botany
and ornithology, but also a man of
highly cultivated taste. He Is cred-
Ited with a much greater preference
for the Identification of rare plants
than for the study of an enemy's
line of battle. At the same time ho
lias nol railed in recognize the fact
that tlie army Is necessary and that
It is tlie backbone of his country.
His active Interest In this direction
Is evidenced by the many military
buildings that have been erected in
the capital within the past few
.< ai b
Ferdinand   lias  made  a   complete
study of the difficult language and
the  history  of  hla people and   is a
tickler for the ceremonies of
liis little court,     In fact, the osten
of l he Bulgarian co irt,
foi malillei an  'im  In
burg    or    VI   ma,  caused
.1    nee  among    ill  cl
:ii the eat lj  years of but il

of complete Independence.
LICENSE  LAWS   •
Ontario's Proposed Legislation Rein-
alive to Liquor Administration
Three most important bills have
been introduced in the Ontario legislature, two dealing with liquor
licenses, and the other imposing a
tax on race tracks in the province
of Ontario.
The first bill, which was Introduced by Hon. W. J. Hanna, proposes to collect five per cent of all
bar receipts above an average of $40
per day. To tills end licensees must
make monthly returns of receipts
accompanied by a five per cent payment to the province direct through
the provincial secretary's department, and in order that tlie latter
may keep a check the bill gives an
official of the department access to
all books of a licensee as well as to
all books of wholesalers,
Mr. Hanna explaied that in tlie
cutting off of so many licenses the
remaining hotels were ensured of
greatly increased patronage, and It
was felt to be only fair that a portion of this unearned increment
should come back to the people of
the province. A large proportion of
the smaller hotels in the province
would not be affected at all. Another important addition to the act
gives tlie province power to vote
over all licenses in the province
Heretofore it had had this power
over licenses in unorganized di
tricts. It is not proposed to exercise
this power save in extreme and exceptional cases.
A separate bill dealing with the
liquor problem aims to check the
Illegal sale of liquor by druggists
It has been approved by the more
reputable section of the profession
and provides that a chemist convicted for the second time of selling
liquor illegally shall be handed over
to the pharmaceutical council for
discipline, that body having power
to ssupend his druggist license for
one, two or three years at its discretion.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
SPORTS
SMALLER LACROSSE FIELD
At the annual meeting of the National Lacrosse Union in Toronto
next month, President W. E. Findlay
of the Montreal Lacrosse Club will
make a suggestion, in fact will put
it before the meeting as a resolution, that may make a great change
in the National summer game. Mr.
Findlay's proposition In brief is to
reduce the size of the field and to
reduce the size of tlie teams.
Mr. Findlay proposes to reduce
the length of the field to 100 yards
between goals and the teams to ten
men each. At the present time the
rules call for a distance of at least
120 yards between goals but while
the rule sets a minimum distance it
says nothing whatever about a maximum distance. Thus on some
grounds the limit is 120 yards, while
on others the distance is much
greater. •
By making a uniform distance and
by limiting the distance behind the
goals in which the ball may be in
play, Mr. Findlay hopes to see a
game developed that will appeal
more strongly than ever to the spectators. By reducing the size of the
field Mr. Findlay paves the way for
the reduction of the number of men
on the team. As the game Is at
present there are always spells during which players at one end or the
other are comparatively idle. By
reducing the teams and playing ten
men a side Mr. Findlay anticipates
that this objectionable feature can
be eliminated. Another and probably still more important factor in the
eyes of the professional clubs is the
fact that a couple less players need
be carried on the salary list, effecting a saving of possibly fifteen hundred dollars a year to some clubs.
PUGILISTIC  FAME   SHORT
How time does fly? Here is Battling Nelson out with the big talk
of taking the rest cure and trying
to "come back," and really when
one stops to think of It, Nelson Is
onl ya "kid" at the game, writes
Jim Corbett in his weekly letter to
the Chicago Tribune. Why, the Battler was practically unknown until
about six years ago, when opportunity matched him against Young
Corbett, and somehow or other we
are inclined to look upon him as an
old man. And this same Young Corbett. has been down and out as a
fighter for what seems a long time,
yet it is only nine years ago that he
met and defeated Terry McGovern
at Hartford, and he is still a youngster in years.
In 1892 I won the heavyweight
championship from John L. Sullivan—more than eighteen years ago,
although it does not seem that long
to me. And during the intervening
years, I have seen the rise and fall of
many a champion. Some hang on
and weather the storms for years,
while others are amongst us for a
brief period only to drift • out of
sight before we hardly have time to
become acquainted with their prow-
ress. This Is true more particularly
of the lighter classes and 13 strongly
impressed upon us when we think of
the fistic heroes of what seems ages
to many, and yet according to the
calendar is at most a few short years.
Jack McAulIffe, Young Grlffo and
Kid Lavigne are almost forgotten,
though it Is not so long ago that
Frank Erne won the championship
from the latter. In no other walk
of life Is fame so shortlived as in
professional pugilism.
GETTING HEADY I'OR RACES
Oxford is getting along finely with
its crew for the nnnual race witli
Cambridge on the Thames at Putney. The men have been well
schooled, and the university coaches
are sanguine that they have an eight
which will give the light blue plenty
of concern when tlie old rivals meet
in their great race of the year.
Tlie Oxford men are strong and
enduring and they have been taught
to stroke their boat with power and
speed. Oxford has won the last two
races from Cambridge, and this
year Is anxious to'triumph again,
that they may hold a successive record of three defeats over their old
rival. That will compensate in sonic
measure for the three successive defeats which were administered to
Oxford by Cambridge in 1906, 1907
and 1908.
The crews of England's famous
universities have rowed 67 times in
the past. Of this large number of
races Oxford litis won 36 and Cambridge 30. The race in 1877 resulted in a dead heat. The majority of victories has gone lo the dark
blue, but the Oxonians are eager to
win their third straight this season,
not only  to  Increase  their  general
total, but, as previously stated that
they may avenge a little for the
more recent triple victory which
Cambridge has to its credit. The
ract this year will be held on April
1.   The respective crews are:
Oxford—C. A. Gladstone, Christ
Church, bow; L. G. Wormald, Magdalen; C. E. Tinne, University; E.
Millington  Drake,  Magdalen;   C.  W.
B. Littlejohn, New; A. S. Garton,
Magdalen; R. E. Burgess, Magdalen;
R. C. Bourne, New (stroke); H. B.
Wells, Magdalen (cox).
Cambridge—S. E. Swann, Trinity
Hall (bow); R. Davies, St. Catharines;  F.  E.  Hellyer, First Trinity;
C. F. Burnand, First Trinity; R. le
Blanc Smith, Third Trinity; J. B.
Rosher, First Trinity; G. E. Fair-
bairn, Jesus; R. W. M. Arbuthnot,
Third Trinity (stroke); C. A. Skinner, Jesus (cox).
MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPIONS
Five fighters, two of them Penn-
sylvanians, are entrenching their
works for a fusilade on the middleweight championship and the entrants are: Frank Klaus, of Pittsburg, Leo Houck, of Lancaster, Jimmy Gardiner, of Lowell, Dave Smith,
of Australia, and Billy Papke, of Illinois.
When the great Ketchel was buried, the flashiest, fastest and fiercest
of the American warriors, a title was
left vacant and a squabble of the
scribes started as to the proper possessor of the middleweight championship. Billy Papke possibly had
the tightest clutch on the crown,
but his defeat by Dave Smith dims
the lustre of his battle shield.
Papke has been labeled a wildcat
when winning and a possum when
the flogging of the fists was breaking against him. When the matchless Ketchel was trained Papke had
about as much chance with "Steve"
as a safety razor has against a battleship. Papke no longer has youth,
he always lacked daring and skill,
and It was mere might that mowed
down his men. Keen observers will
pass Papke when searching for a fellow who can win the middleweight
title.
Jimmy Gardner, of Massachusetts,
is the most gifted fighter of the lot,
but he has an erratic record. He
has style, skill and a short shot with
either hand and a lot of latent speed.
He has shown little in long fights,
for Mike Twin Sullivan can always
beat him in an hour's gruelling.
The most promising of the brigade
are Leo Houck and    Frank    Klaus.
Houck is a powerful youngster, a
great gloveman from the scientific
side of the sport. He hits straight,
blocks accurately, and had never
been beaten until Klause outpointed
him. A broken bone in one of his
hands has kept him from the fray
for some time. This type of fighter,
if they escape the fiendish assault of
the opening rounds, always go better
every round in a bout of length.
Klause is not the educatyed leath-
erist that Houck Is, but his engine
can chug and churn more cartridges,
and of a more deadly calibre than
the Lancaster lad. The Pirate favorite appears to possess better assimilative qualities than Houck, but
Houck is so seldom hurt that a true
line of his ability to shed punishment has not been thoroughly tested.
In Boston and New York they pick
Klause as the future title holder,
possibly because he attacks on the
same line that the old champion,
Ketchel, did when under way.
Dave Smith, of Australia, is the
unknown quantity, but he will not
remain in that remote region long.
There Is a financial factor in finding Smith's real rating, and he will
be brought over here by bis manager
to pugillstically Bradstreet him.
Smith may be another Fitzsimmons.
He cannot be a poor fighter, unless
the hobbles were on Papke, Clabby
and Thompson.    He beat the trio.
Ketchel had shot the class to
pieces with his punches; his death
has left some stiff strifes for the
lesser lights.

Aid. Pattullo Is Still Anxious to Get
Information About the
Rainbow
At the council sitting last evening
there was a full attendance of the
members. Mayor Manson was In
his place as presiding officer.
On the reading of the minutes of
the last meeting, Aid. Smith, who
was absent from the last session,
having gone to Vancouver on private
business, took occasion to make a
statement relative to the request
from the Industrial workers, with
respect to a reported message having
been sent to Victoria In which it
said that the trouble here was being
engineered by three criminals from
Spokane. As acting mayor, Aid.
Smith said no telegram was sent
from the council containing any such
language.
Mayor Manson expressed his pleasure at being back again. He was
»sorry that he was delayed In Victoria for a week, awaiting the arrival of Mr. Tate. He regretted that
his absence had thrown more work
upon members of the council and
he made special reference to Aid.
Smith and Aid. Hilditch, who had
filled the position of acting mayor.
S. P. McMordie & Co. asked for
an extension in time on Second avenue work.
This was referred to the streets
committee.
Geo. C. Stimson & Co., of Toronto, asked if the debentures had been
disposed of. They requested an option on them.
This was referred to the finance
committee.
The Gamewell Company suggested
a syste mof fire alarms.
This was referred to the telephone
committee.
Aid. Pattullo asked for a copy of
the telegram sent by the acting mayor relative to the Rainbow, and also
what message was sent to Ottawa
seeking aid for troops.
Aid. Hilditch said that he believed
Aid. Pattullo could ask this but he
would also like to ask Aid. Pattullo
who told him that there had been
any such  messages sent.
Aid. Smith said it would be difficult to get the message for the reason that no request was sent. It
originated in the imagination of
some one. No mesage was sent to
any official.
Aid. Pattullo explained that at the
last meeting, Aid. Newton had said
that Aid. Smith was instructed to
send a telegram for the Rainbow to
keep in touch with Prince Rupert.
He demanded the production of the
message sent.
Aid. Hilditch doubted the right of
Aid. Pattullo to make such a demand when there was no action by
the council.
Aid. Newton said he never made
a statement that the acting mayor
was instructed to send for help.
His Worhsip thought that the system of asking questions was not conducted properly. He believed that
questions should be presented in
writing. IIe did not approve of this
method of piitlin ga member of the

excuse of asking questions. As to
this particular case if the acting
mayor acted in an official way the
correspondence was open to question. If in a private way it was not
open.
The mayor did not approve of
qtiesthions that were foolish or were
not foolish being put by members of
the council to other members of the
council.
Aid. Patullo desired to know if
the mayor wolud answer whether he
had received any message from the
acting mayor on this point.
His Worship said he did not propose to reveal any private telegram
sent to him by any member of the
council.
The matter then  dropped.
