In view of the fact that this present visit of II. M. C. S. Rainbow is
the first one to Prince Rupert the
citizens are preparing to give the officers and crew a hearty welcome and
will entertain them in an informal
way.
A committee consisting of Alderman Clayton Major Gibson, Fred
Stork, W. S. Benson, A. J. .Morris,
George Tite and P. I. Palmer have
taken, the matter in hand and the
mayor and city council are co-operating in every way in the reception.
This evening an Informal smoker
will be given in the Empress Theatre in honor of the men. The members of the crew will assist in the
•programme and every one who knows
anything of the "Jackies" know
that they always have excellent talent
for entertainment.
Arrangements are also under way
for a reception and dance in honor
of the officers, which will be given
tomorrow evening. This will be more
or less informal also and the public
are asked to attend.
It has not been fully decided yet
whether it will be held in Melntyre
Hall or in the Kaien Island Club
gymnasium.
To both these functions the public
are invited. They will be under the
patronage of the mayor and council.
DRIFTED OX TO TREASURE
How fortune aided the salvors who
went to the scene of the wreck of
the Pacific Coast company's steamer
Ramona at Cape Decision and succeeded in recovering part of the gold
bullion which went down with the
vessel, is told hy arrivals from the
iiorlh. Diver Finch had gone down
to the wreck and was brought up
to the surface after an unsuccessful
descent. It seemed that there was
little change of recovering the treasure, for the steamer had been broken.
Tbe diver went down again, when a
wave caught him and threw him
across the deck, landing him on the
treasure. The safe and mails were
not recovered. The only bullion
brought up was that on which the sea
cast  the diver.

his supervision and he rushed to loo'
over the situation before the work
Is completed, which will be very
shortly.
Mr. Henderson's visit is the first
he has made to Prince Rupert. He
went over the townsite and was much
interested in the work that was being done here. He was pleased to
see that permanency marked all the
civic undertakings and remarked
upon the solid character of the
streets. Mr, Henderson has had considerable experience In civic work,
having been reeve of Oak Bay, a
municipality adjoining Victoria city
for several years.
He left this morning for Victoria,
where he makes his headquarters.
NAVY IS IN PORT
Cruiser Rainbow Steamed Into Harbor
Yesterday Afternoon After Cruise
up Coast.
Commander Hose Invites citizens on
Board  at   Any   Time   to
Inspect   Vessel
Through the courtesy of Commander Hose and the officers of
H. M.C. S. Rainbow the public
are at liberty to go on board the
warship at any time during her
stay in port and inspect the
vessel.
LOSS   HAS   BEEN   SMALL
Conclusion  of Season  iu   Fire Wnnl-
cn's Department shows Light
Devastations
That the loss (rom forest fires in
the province of British Columbia during the past season has been practically the lightest in its history, Is
the annuoncement made hy W. C.
Gladwin, chief provincial fire Warden,
"We have, of course,.been very fortunate this season in that: the weather has not been against us," said Mr.
Gladwin. "There is another reason,
however, to account for splendid record put up this season, and that Is
that the force of men we have had
out through the province has been
considerably increased this year. This
has meant much. When a fire breaks
out, a few extra men can often be
the means of preventing it from
spreading to serious proportions.
With the exception of a few routine
matters which have to be attended
to, the work will practically conclude
for the seeason today. Heavy rains
have fallen in practically every part
ofthe province during the past few
weeks, and the danger for another
season Is at an end."
 o-	
S. C. Weeks of Kitsumkolum is In
tne city.
H. M. C. S. Rainbow steamed Into
port yesterday afternoon, It being
the first visit of the cruiser to this
harbor. Last Tuesday night word
was received here that the Rainbow
niight be expected at any time and
from that day her arrival was
watched for.
Commander Hose, It. N., is in command of the cruiser, having relieved
Commander Stewart some months
ago. The new commander is very
pleased with the service here, and
thinks that the system of training
young recruits on board a vessel like
the Rainbow should have decided advantages over the general system of
training ships in the Old Land, where
the boys, during their earlier service
do not get the advantages of actual
life at sea.
Upon tlie arrival of the cruiser,
.Mayor Manson went out and met the
warship and extended on behalf of
the city a welcome to the commander,
his officers and crew.
Later in the evening Commander
Hose and other officers had dinner
with the mayor and the government
agent, J. II. McMullen, at the Prince
Rupert,  Inn.
The warship will remain in port
until Sunday morning or possibly a
day later. Commander Hose announces that the cruiser will be open
for inspection by tlie public al any
lime during the day during the stay
In port. iho slay is a short one
and he accordingly will not hold to
the general rule of limiting tlie hours
during which the vessel may be inspected.
The Rainbow has been some weeks
nt Comox previous to coming here.
There the orew look their annual
musketry practice al the naval range
that has been located there fur many
years.
The present cruise, the commander
says, is one of their regular ones
designed to give the boys in training
actual sen life, While they are- not
actually patrolling for fishing poachers, they are ever on the lookout to
see thai no violations are being made
of the International 'aw,
The crew of the Rainbow Is rather
under strength at present. When the
full complement is aboard the crew
would consist of very nearly 600.
There are twenty-five recruits from
Canada on board the vessel now and
Commander Hose speaks In the highest terms of these western boys. They
are quick and take readily to the
work, he says.
James McEvoy Representing Toronto Capital is More Than Satisfied With
Groundhog Mountain
VIEWS ON POLL TAX
Ex Minister  Carter Cotton  Expresses
Himself Upon the Question of
Taxation Methods.
DISMISSED  BY  GRAND .11 liV
High Grade Anthracite Will Be Easily
Worked by Tunnelling—Kail-
way is Assured
James .McEvoy, representing Toronto capitalists, reached the city yesterday from Groundhog Mountain 'in
the Hazelton district. He left again
this morning for Vancouver by the
Prince Rupert on his way to Toronto.
-Air. .McEvoy has had a part at
work on the coal claims held by him
and his eastern associates for several months. Among those interested
Is G. G. S. Lindsey of Toronto, one
of the best known mining investors
of Canada.
The result of the season's work at
the property has more than ever convinced Mr. .McEvoy that his company
has one of the most valuable holdings in Britisii Columbia. There has
been proved to be an immense field,
ne says, and with several railway
projects under consideration, he says
transportation is assured almost infilled iately.
The fields He in the direction of
the Kispiox Valley and railway construction  offers no serious  obstacle.
During the summer ten tunnels
were driven into the mountain at various points to test the deposits.
These varied in length up to about
fiity feet and were put in to ascertain ine exact formation so as to
better carry out the permanent work
which will he started.
Mr. McEvoy, who is an expert in
coal mining, having served for years
as the expert at the Crows Nest Pass
Coal Company's works, says after the
season's operations that the coal has
proved better than he anticipated.
It is the equal of the best anthracite
mined in the Pennsylvania fields and
there is an immense body.
The mining will be economical, as
it can be worked by tunnelling without any hoist. He goes back now
to report to his associates and lay
out plans for the future.
These measures were taken up by
Mr. McEvoy many years ago, before
the G. T. p. route was finally settled upon. Mr. .McEvoy was then
associated with the Crows Nest Pass
Company. He spent considerable
time in the north looking into the
various coal propositions, and located these measures at Groundhog
.Mountain, which have been held by
the syndicate he represented ever
since.
Within easy reach of Prince Rupert by rail, these coal fields will
afford another excellent source of
supply supplementary  to thai   from
; Queen Charlotte Islands. Prince
Rupert is apparently to suffer nolli-
ng from lack of fuel for industrial
purposes as it develops and it should
therefore become a most attractive
oini   for  manufacturers.
He  Is Opposed  to the   Levy oil   Per-
soniil Property Also as It Is
Wasting the Capital
That a real property tax In unorganized districts and a developed and
a graduated income tax tll.'OUghout
the province should be the principal
forms of government taxation, was
the opinion expressed by Hon. F. L.
Carter-Cotton at a sitting of the commission on taxation in Vancouver.
Mr. Carter-Cotton favored the abolition of the revenue or poll tax and
the tax on personal property. The
former he described as an "abominable" tax, and the latter as a "tax
w,.sting the actual capital of property
owners."
Mr. .eter-Cotton's remarks on
taxation were listened to by the commission with a great deal of interest
and attention.
"Former commissions appointed
hy the government had .a different
work to perform than this one,"
commented Mr. Carter-Cotton. "Other
taxation commissions were appointed
to see in what way the government
could best raise money without pressing too heavily on the people. Your
duty is to report on modifications to
existing legislation that may be
deemed necessary. I appreciate that
it is a very large question.
"I may say of the revenue or poll
tax that I consider it an abominable
tax, and I think it should be repealed. The system when it was first
put in operation was very different
from that of today."
Mr. Carter-Cotton then related
how the poll tax had been first imposed by the government at the time
of lhe Cariboo gold rush, when it
had been absolutely necessary for the
government to levy such a tax upon
the floating population in order that
roads might be constructed through
to the gold country.
"The poll tax is one that- at the
present state of the development of
the province should be done away
with," added Mr. Carter-Cotton, "li
is not fair or equitable, nor do 1
know of any other part of the British Empire where it is imposed. The
manner of collecting this tax is also
objectionable."

BITTING JUNES
The grand jury found "no bill" in
the  ease  of .Messrs.  W.   Houston and
0. J. V. Spratt of the Victoria Machinery Depot, Victoria, accused of
■eiaining unlawfully certain stores,
lie property of the admiralty, know-
ng  them  to  have been  stolen.   This
disposes of the case which has been
going on since April last, in which
Frederick Bullock, alias Alfred Bul-
ock, a former employee of the Victoria Machinery Depot who was
■harked with stealing canvas from
he works, a charge afterwards with-
Irawn, gave certain information to
3ommander   Vivian,   R. n.,   of   the
1. .M. S. Shearwater, when he returned from South America on May 1,
with the result that seizures of goods,
alleged to have been stolen from the
admiralty, were made. While the
preliminary hearing was under way
Bullock was arrested on a charge of
attempting extortion from A. J. Bech-
tel of the Victoria Machinery Depot.
This case has not yet been disposed
of.

The administration of Chinese im
migration    affairs    in    Canada    has  ber along the shores
passed   from   the  hands  of  the  Dominion department of trade and com
merce to the Immigration branch of
the   interior.     For  many  years   the
former  department—the  customs  of
Canada—controlled Chinese immigration traffic and the decision to transfer this business to the department of
the  interior  followed   revelations  of
laxity  made at  sittings  of the  commission   ef entiie',y Into Chinese .immigration held al Vancouver und Victoria some months ago.
The immediate results of the transfer of administration was the appearance in Vancouver of Dr. P. II.
Bryce, Dominion medical heal 'i officer, and L. M. Forlier chief clerk
of the Immigration branch of the
departmenl of the interior. W. D. |
Scott, superintendent of immigration,

.JUST ONE NEW HAZELTON
THE SPOKANE OF CANADA
All Interests Combine to Boost the
New Town—Campaign Has Stinted—Natural Resources Guarantee n Dig Population—Contractors' Headquarters.
Tlie New Hazelton campaign has
started. For the next few months
the very best efforts of some of the
greatest advertising men and real
estate firms in Britisii Columbia will
be devoted to Boosting New Hazelton. The different interests have
combined to make this town one of
the foremost in the province. A careful study has been made by experts
and they are all agreed that there
cannot be too much boosting. The
natural resources are Here and they
are now heing developed In a way
heretofore unknown. Everything is
now on the move. Mining has this
week had a stimulation that was not
dreamed of. During the two previous
weeks several big deals were put
through which meant the bringing in
of mining men known the world
o\ er. Agriculture has been very successful this j'ear and the farmers
have had bigger crops than ever.
They are all getting on their feet
and buying machinery as fast as it
can   he   brought   into   the   country.
Tliis week Charles S. Meek, president of Standard Securities, Ltd.,
Vancouver was in town and completed  arrangements  with   the  sur-
wn
$10 a Month
veyors to Uvy out his company's
-property. This work has already
been started and it will be finished
in another ten days.
It is on the Northern Interior
Land Co.'s property that so many
of the old Hazelton business men
have purchased lots and are prepared
to build, many this fall. It is from
this point that the business section
will start and grow, and where high
values will prevail.
There    will    be    the    one    town
instead of several as might have
been. This means a great deal; in
fact, many hundreds of dollars to
the people of tlie old town, who have
been wondering where the town
would be. From now on New
Hazelton will be introduced to the
world in a manner that no other
town   can  equal

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
THE COSTLIEST OF FURS
Sl-
Furs in ^anada are today becoming prohibitive in price. Consequently none but the wealthy can afford
to wear any of the genuine and more
rare of our Canadian varieties. Still
they appear but paltry in price, when
compared with some of the Russian
variety. Discussing this, the Weekly
Telegram says:
"The fur dealers of Irbolt have
decided to request the prime minister to prohibit the catching of sables
for two years, being convinced that
only by this means can the extinction
of the sable be obviated. To the
many who are Interested in tne fur
trade, the fate of the sable is a matter of very great importance. Sable,
Arctic fox, etc., are becoming scarcer
every year owing to their Indiscriminate destruction in various fur producing districts in the effort to supply the American market. The Arctic fox is disappearing throughout the
north of Siberia, and the sable has
already been exterminated in certain
districts. At the Yakutsk fur market last year this tendency was clearly shown, as there were only 200
sables for sale, against 5,000 in the
previous year.
"Of all furs, no other, except perhaps it may be silver fox. has as
great a money value as Russian sable. There are many grades of the
fur, depending on the color, softness,
etc. The best of all, the Russian
Imperial sable, it is said by connoisseurs 'makes the lighter shades look
cheap and tawdry.'
"The superfine quality used to be
reserved for the imperial family. Foreigners were rarely or never able to
obtain much of it, unless, perchance,
presents were made, by some of the
members of the court to the sotirts
of other nations, and members of
our own royal family have acquired
some excellent garments of this much
desired fur, possibly in tlie way indicated,-for our royal family, as most
readers know, is closely allied with
that of Russia; and besides, custom makes resent giving between
sovereigns a matter of some consequence.
"It was not so very long ago, indeed, that the bestowing of a Russian
sable garment was regarded as a
mark of distinct favor accorded outside the royal circles to very great
favorites and highly esteemer persons.
"How valuable this fur is may be
judged from the fact that a sum of
$7,500 was recently paid for a sable
and seal coat; but tnat sum, great
as it is, would he regarded as comparatively small by a Russian grand
duchess, for there are many coats of
this material which are worth considerably more. Indeed, in America,
wliere the women are almost more
luxurious than in any other country,
Russian sable is being obtained in
a remarkable way, for the old stringency has been relaxed and this fur,
so highly prized, is finding its way
across the Atlantic in obedience to
the magnetic attraction of money.
"One of the Imperial Russian skins
will cost between ?400 and ?500,
and as sable is a small animal about
tlie size of a weasel, it is easy to
see how the money must go in the
production of a coat of this material.
A sable cloak has been made In New
York which cost $15,000, and there
is another cloak of Imperial Russian
sable in France at the present time
which is said to be worth $60,000.
"The value of Russian sable is so
great that, naturally attempts have
been made to counterfeit.lt. The
consequence of this is that there is a
good deal of the so-called Imperial
sable to be found on certain markets, but ii is really of an inferior
quality, which Is light in color bul
dyed so remarkably that it would
deceive anyone except an expert. Like
many other 'fakes,' these Imitations
soon fade, and thus betray themselves.
"Hudson Hay also furnishes sable.
bul it is not nearly so good as the
Ruii«lan variety cither In color or in
quality and tlie best. Hudson Bay
sable makes a poor show by the side
of the best Imperial Russian, which
is a soft, rich brown aim exceedingly
fine, while the Hudson Bay variety-
has a tinge of red In It, and even at
Its best Is rather coarser than tlie
other.
"After Russian sable the next most
valuable fur in the world Is probably
the silver fox, one of whose skins,
if of fine quality, is worth between
$.,000 and $1,500, but as it Is about
three times the size of a sable the
two furs are prpctically of about the
same value. Silver fox is, however,
chiefly used for trimmings, so that
it really does not encroach on the
domain of the sable, which Is the
imperial ruler of all the furs with
which heauntiful women decorate
themselves."

Friday,  October  6,   1911.
WELCOME TO  V.W V
Citizens of Prince Ruperl will welcome the officers and men of the
Canadian warship Rainbow now in
pun. The visit lo this harbor is the
fir.-: thai has been made and for
the flrsl time we have 'en our streets
the men of the Canadian navy. The
cruiser is essentially a training ship
where Canadians may acquire their
knowledge of naval service and play
their pari in the defence of Empire.
In n new country like this, with the
many Inducements In oilier directions, recruiting will of necessity be
a little difficult, There have been,
however, twenty-five enlistments for
the senii-e and it is safe to predict
that they will do honor to the service.
The navy has always been the
especial pride of the Britisii people
and as long as recourse must be had
to force In the settlement of international disputes and the maintenance
of peace It must hold its firm place
in the affections of the people of
the Empire.
The Rainbow brought with her
from Britain the nucleus of a crew,
or about 200 men. The hope has
been to recruit up to the strength
by adding another third of the complement necessary from young Canadians, The boys who enlist will have
the advantage of training under what
we are proud to claim as ihe best
naval force in the world, the British
navy. Our Canadians trained under
the "sea dogs" of the Imperial force
should lack nothing when compared
with them.
We are voicing bul the general
sentiment of the city when we extend
a hearty Canadian welcome to the
officers and men of tbe Rainbow.
Aside from Prince Rupert, the extreme western terminus, the most
promising point on tne G. T. P. western division seems to be New Hazel-
ion. It is well said that the prosperity of every city is due to its geographical position. That being the
case, New Hazelton will some day be
one of the greatest cities of Western
Canada, says the Inland Colonist.
The townsite Is on a straight, level
grade of the railway, and is not far
from the confluence of the Bull-ley
and Skeena Rivers. It is also on the
governmenl wagon road which runs
(rom Hazelton out in the Bulkley
Valley, When the railroad is completed New Hazelton will be the natural distributing centre for whole of
Incidental to the war between tae district. Already some of the

STOLE NAVAL STORKS
VICTORIA—John Hay, convicted
on a charge of receiving stolen naval
stores, knowing them to nave been
stolen, was given eighteen months'
imprisonment by Judge Lampman.
Mr. Henderson, for ihe prisoner, this
morning renewed his application for
a stated case on the ground that there
was no Identity proved between the
stolen stores confessed to be received
and the stores sold by Day to the
Victoria .Machinery Depot. Other
were that there was no evidence of
tne navy having lost any goods except
tuose stolen by Reid, and alleged improper admissions of evidence by Witnesses Williams nnd Bullock; thai
the accused came voluntarily before
the ''Hurl mi the day of the trial and
«as nol brought by the sheriff. Judge
Lampman refused the application and
then asked the prisoner- if he had
anything to say why sentence should
nol be passed. Hay had nothing to
say, and after Mr, Aikman, for the
crown, intimated that the naval authorities through Commander Vivian
had Informed him that an unnecessary sentence was not desired, but
thai the object was to prevent tho
theft of stores, the sentence was
named. "It is not necessary for me
to say anything regarding the seriousness of your position," said Judge
Lampmann to the prisoner. "I see
that you realize it yourself. You are
sentenced to one year and six months'
imprisonment."

WRESTLING    CHAMPIONSHIP
The wrestling excitement is over
and the championship seems destined
io remain in this country, for many
years.
Doubtless the thoughts of that
$S7,000 "gate" at the Comlskey
Park, Chicago, on September 4 lasl,
will impel wike-awake managers aud
promoters to scour the highways and
byways of the world in tiie hope of
scaring up a worthy opponent for
Frank Gotch. Already he has been
challenged on behalf of the big Pole,
Zbyszko, and in all likelihood the
startling news will be forthcoming
after a while that a bulging Bulgarian with a seventy-two inch chest
and arms and legs in proportion has
been located somewhere in his native
land or that the very latest thing in
Turks is coming to this country to
put the smiling gentleman from
Humboldt to rout. But what will it
all avail? The public has sense
enough to know that worth while
wrestlers are nol. discovered weekly.
They are not .unearthed as pigs unearth truffes.
Wrestling, more than any other
form of athletics, requires especial
talent and much schooling and practice before proficiency is reached,
and, such being the case, it will be
to laugh when the plague of outlandish hip and thigh specialists sets in.
That there will be such a plague is
thought   to   he   inevitable.
The best way to figure the chances
of any unknown wrestler in a match
with Gotch is to reflect on what happened fo Hackenschmidt. Here was
a man acknowledged to be the superior of all the Turks and Poles
and Mohemmedans that ever clutched
a neck or grappled for a leg hold.
While hiding his time until Gotch
should agree to meet him a second
time, he went around the .country
tossing all the champions of far lands
with ridiculous ease. The Russian
lion's roar had been heard all over
the universe, from Si.. Petersburg
to Botan- Bay, and whenever it wns
heard the men of the mat ■tumbled,
Yet, in the hands of Gotch, the
supposed czar of the wrestling kingdom was as helpless as a trussed turkey in the hands of a chef. So helpless, indeed, that in the larget of
the slangsters, -The show was rotten." Had il been ordained that
Gotch instead of Hackenschmidt was
to lose after such a wretched display,
the public would have felt toward
wrestling as ii did towards boxing
when fear-shaken Jeffries collapsed
at  Reno.
JOHN L. SULLIVAN
If present plans ilo not miscarry,
the voice of John L. Sullivan, former
wnrlil's champion heavyweight may
he herd ringing in the lower hall of
Congress within a year or two. The
candidacy of the one-lime heavy-
weigh i prizefighter of Hie world has
been launched by a number of his
Democratic neighbors, and Mr. Sullivan will make a formal announce-
nieiil from his Massachusetts farm
wilhin n few days, il is said. Sullivan  is quoted  as follows, relative In
were really the best team when the
quarter ended. They got one goal
and missed many chances by the narrowest margin.
After this the Vancouver defence
was   a   veritable   stone   wall,   while
eir scoring division started in and
finished the second quarter two
goals  lo  the good.
The final quarter saw Vancouver
going strong and it was hard to see
any other finish to the game than
Vancouver  as  winners.
A very talented young organist was
appointed to an important church in
the .Midlands. In course of time he
married, and -while he was on his
honeymoon the voluntaries, wliich
had been greatly appreciated by the
congregation, were very much missed,
and their renewal was eagerly anticipated. The aniiisenieni of the congregation was great when, after his
return from the honeymoon, the newly married organist rendered, as his
first voluntary, Handel's "Waft Her,
Angels, to the Skies."

CHANGES IN OFFICIOUS
The Princess Royal of the C.P.R.
fleet reached here yesterday on her
way north with Captain Locke on the
bridge. Captain Neroutsos, the former skipper, who has been given a
position in port with Captain Troup,
has left the vessel and Captain Locke
has been assigned to the command.
Captain Douglas Robertson he-
comes the master of the Princess Beatrice. He has had many years service with the C. P. It. and is well
qualified to take the new command.
Captain McLeod will remain with
the Princess .May as formerly.
h
POST FOR (APT. NEROUTSOS
A circular Issued under date of
September 28 by the C. P. R, announces the appointment of Captain
Cyril D. Neroutsos, for some time
past master of the Princess Royal
as marine Superintendent of the
C. P. R. coast steamship service under Captain .1. W. Troup, manager
of me coast service. Captain Neroutsos took tiie the duties of his new
post on October .1. He will look after
the general routine of the fleet management and report lo Captain J. W.
Troup.
The new appointment will result in
-giving Captain J. VV. Troup more
time to attend^to the higher duties
in connection with the mamigemen
of the Britisii Columbia coast steam
ship servir-e. With tile growth of
population and Increasing shipping
development the necessity of increasing the fleet demands his attention
in tlie matter of preparing plans for
vessels to cope with the growing
trade. The fleet of the C. P. R. on
this coast has now grown to a considerable extent and more steamers
are in prospect. The Princess Alice
is en route and another vessel Is
under const ruction at the yards of
Bow,   McLachlan   &   Co.
Captain Neroutsas who has been
appointed to assist Captain Troup,
came to Victoria in 180S. He was
chief officer of the steamer Gar-
ronne, which was bought out hy F.
tVaterhouse to run to St. Michael
at the time of the Klondike rush and
has since been In the C. P. R. service as chief officer, pilot, and for
►some years past as master, his last
command being the steamer Princess
Royal  in  the Skagway service.    "
(IT   RATES
After a lively freight war on the
trans-Pacific route the various steamship companies have got together and
an agreement has been effected to
restores the rates that were reduced
on wheat and flour at the beginning
of next year. The rates were cut by
the Nippon Yusen Kaisha following
reductions made by Japanese tramp
steamers whir-lr entered the trade
some time ago.
Every liner operating in the service to tire Orie'irl is booked witli
freight to practically full Capacity until January 1 and there is every indication thai all exporl records for
any similar period of time will be
broken this fall. While the business
generally increases in the fall, it is
due largely ter tire reduction of the
flour and wheat rate that the heaviest shipments in ye-ars are in view.
It is estimated that more than
1,000,000 barrels or flour will he
shipped from the Puget Sound and
Columbia River this fall. Every
steamship line lias already booked
all of tilt- tlOUl' it will Ire able to
handle between now and January 1.
and so great have been those bookings the trans-Paclflc freight bureau
has decided to agree again, arid, be-
gining January I, the rate on wheat
anel flour will be raised, though now
brought back to the former rate. The
Increase of 60 cents and beginning
January l. Hie- freight will be as follows: To Japan ports, $2.60; to
Hongkong, $3; to Shanghai, $3.50,
and to .Manilla,$•!.
After a long sedge of rale i-iilling
the trans-Pacific freight bureau was
formed and a rate schedule established more than a year ago. Tilings
were peaceful until it was found that
one of the lines met the cut, and the
bureau was practically disrupted. A
conference w-as held last week, however, and things were amicably adjusted, resulting in the agreement to
conform to a regular scheduled rate
beginning January 1.
In the meantime the companies
have booked all the flour they can
possibly handle and every steamer
leaving Vancouver will carry a capacity cargo.
Company, Ltd. This componey operates the Venture and Vadso, and Its
business will be carried on as hither,
to, hut will be developed as opportunities present. The Union Steamship Company will operate the steamers, but John Barnsley, who has been
so long identified with the Boscowitz
Company, will remain with the concern, and also become Victoria agent
for the Union Steamship Company.
The new steamer Chelsohin, which
has just completed trials at Belfast,
and is about to leave for Vancouver,
will probably join the Venture on
the cannery routes.
A meeting of the board of directors of the Union Steamship Company was held recently, and Mr.
Welsford was elected president; .Mr.
Carter-Cotton, chairman of the hoard
of directors, and .Messrs. E. II. Heas-
ley and .1. II. Wrlgley joint managers. G. T. Legg resigned as managing director.
RECORD OF Ll'SITANIA
Tlie Crinard liner Lusitania recently crossed the Atlantic between
New York and Liverpool three times
in three weeks. On the first trip
the speedy greyhound met a tramp
steamship bound from -New York for
Liverpool. The Lusitania on its return trlii overtook the same vessel,
and on its next trip to New York
met the tramp again. On the last
trip from New York the Lusitania
arrived at Liverpool about 9 o'clock
Saturday morning, September 9. Between then and the afternoon of Monday, September 11, the Lusitania discharged 1,000 tons of freight, loaded
1,000 tons of coal, 700,000 gallons
of water, provisions for the trip, and
had more than 40,000 pieces of linen
laundered. In coaling the ship fuel
was taken from forty barges and 500
men were on the job, working continuously until it was finished. The
cargo taken out of the Lusitania had
made three trips across the Atlantic,
the strike having prevented its discharge.

Nines and Mining
LOST EMERALD MINES FOUND
Discovery of What Was Main Source
of Production for Mirny Years
The continued increase in the value
of emeralds during the last ten years,
until at present they outrank diamonds, lends considerable interest to
the recent rediscovery of one of the
old Indian emerald mines in Hie
South American Andes wliich was lost
for over a century.
The real emeralds as distinguished
from Siberian stones, which are not
at all comparable In beauty to the
South American gems, are entirely
produced from one mining dislrict
called AIuzo, in the Republic of Colombia, in South America.
The gem was mined by the native
Indians for centuries previous to the
discovery and conquest of the plateau
of Ilogota in the Andes, and the Indians operated their mines, widely
separated geographically, named Alu-
zo, Cosquez and Somondoco.
About 1865, under Captain Pedro
de Valenzuela, the Spanish conquis-
tadores took over the mines, enslaved
the native Indians, and compelled
them to work the mines. So eager
were the Spaniards to get rich quickly that atrocious cruelties were practiced on the Indian workers, and this
was carried so far that finally the
priests complained to the crown (the
king of Spain) that the innumerable
deaths of the Indians employed in
the mines adversely affected the ecclesiastical revenues.
This resulted in the importation of
African negroes, but eventually the
mines were closed. During the war
of independence, .in IS 1G, and later,
the whole region was so desolated
that two of the mines, Cosquez and
Somondoco, were entirely lost, and
Muzo has produced all the gems since
that time.
It has been prolific, but the out-
p it has been steadily declining dtir-
in.,' the past ten years, and according
to the very best information the ultimate practical abandonment must
cinie in the ne er future unless new

MINERAL WEALTH
Immense Bearing Area fs Discovered
Near Fori George
■A mineral discovery of the very
first importance is reported from the
near neighborhood of Fort George,
from wliich point F. G. D. Dernford,
a notable geologist who also represented the Dominion government in
the negotiations resulting in the recent transfer of the Fort George Indian reserve to the Grand Trunk Pacific has just found his way to Victoria.
The discovery is one of a peculiar
free milling gold quartz, allegedly existing in immense body only three or
four miles to the west of Fort George
town. Numerous prospectors have
been gophering in this territory for
months past but it was not until Ihe
arrival on the scene of Mr. Dernford lhat the true value of tiro country from the standpoint of ils mineral wealth was appreciated.
Mr. Dernford, while quietly waiting for the reserve transfer negotiations to reach a conclusion, devoted
himself assiduously to a study of
the geology of the country, with tbe
resuii thai be became convinced of
its very remarkable worth, and ultl-
mately secured possession <>t" the mineral rights in aboul 5,000 acres which
he is confident will eventually eclipse
even Hie- greal Treadwell as a mineral
pi'ieiiiie-ing area, The mineralization
is in whai is geologically known ns
Huronian rock, generally composed
erf ii green schist and slale Impregnated with quartzlte stringers, in
which Btrlngers the large values are
found, although the green Bchlsl itself gives assays of about 50 cents
to ihe ton, The mineral bearing
rrea is an Immense one and tire
riiiaitz would be mosl economically
mined as a large "glory hole" or open
quarrying proposition, '
So enthusiastic is Mr, Dernford as
to the possibilities of the district that
his predictions for It would undoubtedly be taken for the hysterical va-
porlngs of an over-enthusiastic prospector but for the fact that he occupies an unassailable position as a
geologist throughout the scientific
world.

that the original locators have at
least thirty feet of the lead which
they uncovered. The trip out to the

be used within six miles of it and
then a pack horse will take one right

New  British   Columbia
As a result of a 1,200 mile jour-
new through tlie central regions of
British Columbia, from Tete Jaune
Cache pas1 Foil George to Pvitico
Rupert Fred A. Talbot undertakes
in the United Empire Alagazine for
September to give a brief description
of this newer part of the province
and estimate the future of what he
considers will become one of the
chief agricultural regions of the west,
especially with respect to mixed
farming and market gardening. Particularly does he dwell on the promise of tire Nechaco Valley, stretching
nortli 100 mile's from Fort George,
which, within five years, lie says,
will be a name to conjure with In
regard to fertility. Already there are
evidences of its amazing productivity,
tire valley having been well prepared
for man's use, since tire whole of tlie
country there in clays long distant
had been the bed of an Immense
lake. Having been burnt over in
tlie remote past, the land is easily
cleared. Nothing, from Air. Talbot's
observations, is impossible for the
farmer there. > Ground fruits thrive
in abundance, and there are hopes
Ural tree fruits, such as apples,
plums cherries and such like will in
time be found profitable culture.
Northwest of tire Nechaco Valley
is the Bulkley Valley, also an agricultural region of promise, the land
being a replica of that found In the
Nechaco. Air. Talbot gives instances
of high yields in vegetables, oats and
hay, mentioning particularly the Mclnnes ranch, with its 1,000 acres under cultivation. Tire Grand Trunk
Pacific wil soon be serving these pioneers. A market for -the products
of their farms will be found in the
Coast cities and along the lines of
railways under construction. These
ranchers were wise in their day and
generation when they declared
reciprocity. Now their hay and oats
will not have to meet the competition of Washington State in the markets of Vancouver and Victoria, and
aided by this home market they will
develop accordingly and become
heavy purchasers of the manufactured products of the industrial section; of lhe province.
Beyond the Nechaco valley and
Fort Fraser, its northern limit, there
commences on the eastern slope of
the Cascades another rich belt,
which stretches through the Ootsa,
Francois, Fraser and Stuart Lakes
country. Beyond Stuart Lake this
country converges in the Peace River
district. The land around all these
lakes is described as a series of flat
level benches rising gradually from
the water's edge to the crest of the
hills. Tire low lying areas, Mr. Tal-
bo. states, are suited for cultivation
to approximately the 3,500 contour
line; above the latter limit they provide magnificent grazing country.
Here is where the Japanese chinook
wind, blowing through a great rift
in the Cascades, moderates the climate, and adds, by the melting of
the snow through the winter, to the
productivity of the soil. The land is
easily worked, we are told, and the
yields of vegetables enormous, reference being made to farmers' assertions that, a crop of potatoes yielding
a profit of $1,000 an acre has been
taken off new fields.
Fort George, this observant traveller slates, is destined to become the
metropolis of Now Britisii Columbia.
It will lie a railway junction town,
the point of convergence for lines
south to Vancouver, west to Prince
Itupert and east to Alberta, while it
is tlie key for a waterways system
that is over 1,000 miles In extent,
steamboats being already in service
ne Teie- Jaune Cache 320 miles, soulh
on the Fraser to Soda Creek, 150
miles, and up the Nechaco River lo
Stnarl I.aire, Fraser Lake and Fran-
cols   Lake.
Mr, Talbot's i  tlmate of this new
region of greal agricultural possibilities which has in the past been con-
il .    unsr ne'il to economical de-
■ ij enl exr epl posslblj to the mining Industry, is thai the resout i
of Southei n British Columbia, much
ai the developed area has proved
wealthy und highly productive, are
in significant i:i comparison witli
that which is to lie' found farther
north; thai the territory of this inland empire possessed of the greatest
potential wealth, has been overlooked far- too long. Bul with the advent
or railways there are signs of a rapid
awakening, lie ailds, with a tor-
ward movement, unparalleled in the
history of the province.
SAWMILL AT ALBERNI
Company Is Preparing to Erect Modern Plant at Cost of
$e)0,<)00
A sawmill with a cutting capacity
of 75,000 feet per day is to be established by the Canadian Pacific Lumber Company in Port Alberni, says
the Alberni Pioneer Press. The machinery is under order and will begin
to arrive  within three weeks.
Twenty experienced millwrights
and a staff of helpers will arrive with
the first Installment, and work will
be prosecuted vigorously in order lo
have tlie new mill in operation before
the first of February next. A shingle
far-terry, witli tliree machines, will
also be operated by the same company.
This announcement is on tlie au-
thorlty of It. W. Gibson, who is
associated with Al. Carlin and Thos.
.Meredith in control of the big manufacturing concern which operates big
mills at Port Aloody and Vancouver,
and recently acquired the Barclay
| Sound eedar mills in this town.
The present Barclay Sound mill
which Is slightly out of date, will ire
almost entirely removed. The planl
and buildings will cost the company
$i50,000.
When the mill is in operation, running a single ten-hour shift, per day,
its pay roll will amount to $S,000 per
month. In addition to this there will
be paid out for logging operations in
the Immediate district $12,000 per
month.
If the demand calls for it the mil
will be run on double shift, doubling
the town pay roll. The Canadian
Pacific Company has a ready market
for the output of its Port Aloody and
Vancouver mills, and is assured of a
market for the proposed additional
output in Port Alberni. "We will
cater particularly to the local trade,"
said Air. Gibson, "and the surplus of
our output will go with the products
of our other mills. '
There is no shingle mill attached

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Better Terms
"Mr. R. L. Borden, who has been
chosen by the people as the next
premier of Canada, has pledged himself that on the question of better
terms tor British Columbia he will
appoint a commission, or some sort
of enquiry to look into the financial
relationship now existing between the
Dominion and the Province."
This was the statement of Hon.
W. J. Bowser, attorney general of
Britisii Columbia, during the course
of au Interview In which lie said that
the return of the Conservative party
to power in Dominion affairs meant
that in the matter of public works aird
other relations with the Federal government this province was now assured of a "square deal."
Ownership of Railway Belt
"Incidentally," said the attorney
general, "this fair dealing will apply
in the matter of the ownership of
the Britisii Columbia Railway Belt.
As you know, 1 went to Ottawa before
going to England and while at tiie
Dominion capital I took up this question, among others, with the Federal
government. The question involves
the purchasing of the land within
the belt by the province from the
Dominion. We desire to get away
from the anomalous position of two
jurisdictions within the province. Al
present the exercise of authority by
two governments within the province
leads at time to conflict. This is
shown in the difficult of administering the water rights flowing from
one jurisdiction to the other. The
result is that, settlement is retarded
within the railway belt and in the
country contiguous to it, and we
do not wish to have anything stand
in the way of the development of
Britisii Columbia. There is no quesj
tlon but that British Columbia should
have sole jurisdiction over all the
territory within her borders. This
question will, no doubt, be taken into
consideration by the Conservative Dominion government when the greater
matter of better terms is dealt with.
The land within the railway belt,
which extends clear across Britisii
Columbia along the main line of the
C. P. R., was given by this province
to the Dominion to assist them In
lhe construction of tlie railway in
the province.
Other  Important   Questions
"Other questions relating to fisheries and Indian reservations the provincial government has been pressing
on the Dominion Government for
years but witnout much encouragement as to the settling of them. Now,
however, instead of being received
with what might be termed cold respect, we will at least be met on a
business basis and we will be able
to negotiate with Ottawa along lines
favorable to settlement.
"This same suggestion might apply
to the matter of the Point Grey University site, as to which the Liberal
government at Ottawa advanced a
claim of ownership on the allegation
that it was a military reserve and
as such the property of the Dominion.
Altogether, 477 acres are claimed.
The provincial government Is now
making enquiries into the matter at
tlie war office In London, and securing copies of all documents bearing on the subject; in fact, are delving  into  ancient  history."
"Do you think the return of the
Conservatives to power at Ottawa
will resull in a greater Federal expenditure on public works in this
province than has been the case In
the past?" Hon. Mr, Bowser was
asked.
, (      Construction of Wharves
"In discussing the mutter of Federal public works in this province,
I might mention thai there is no responsibility on the pari of the provincial government under the terms
of Confederation to build wharves
along our coast. We have thousands
of tulles of coasl line und no convenience in the shape of wharves
have been provided by the Dominion
within the pas! fifteen years, during
which time the developmenl or the
coast has been tremendous, The provincial governmenl has expended
many thousands of dollars in the provision of these facilities which the
Dominion government should have
erected and has consistently pressed
claims at Ottawa for repayment of
the moneys spent, but these claims
were not entertained. In contradistinction to this treatment, the Dominion government always seemed to
have plenty of money to build
wharves in New Brunswick at points
which could never be reached by
boats.
"Owing to the attitude of the Dominion government In such matter
tlie provincial government has also
been put to great expense for the
protection of river banks in this province. Notably has this been the ease
on the Columbia River at Revelstoke
and on the Fraser River, where many
thousands of dollars  were spent on
works to protect the banks of the
streams from the encroachment of
the waters. Under Conservative rule
at Ottawa better treatment will be
accorded   Britisii   Columbia."

United   Slates   Hn.s   Increased   Tuxn-
ation   Put   Upon   Foodstuffs
Following Canada's Election
"While Canada is rejoicing over
the defeat of reciprocity, which has
already served to stimulate business
locally in many lines," said Ihe News-
Advertiser in its financial age a few
days ago, "and the general feeling is
one of satisfaction at tlie outcome,
a close perusal of the telegraphic dispatches published, regularly In the
News-Advertiser on this page brings
out the fact thai foodstuffs rose
sharply In price in all American supply centres during the past three
winking days, as an effect of the
Canadian reciprocity refusal. In Chicago wheat led the advance on Friday, and was followed late In the
same day by flour, and oats, loo,
felt the effects of the vote, and
American consumers may expect soon
to pay increased" prices for breakfast
foods. The initial meal of tlie day,
in fact,, seems destined to bear the
brunt of the higher living costs, coffee and sugar having soared previously,
"The greatest advance in wheat,
however, due to the Canadaion reply
to American reciprocity overtures,
was recorded at Duluth, Minn, There
traders were paying as high as 8
cents a bushel more for grain than
before reciprocity was rejected. Alin-
neapolis showed a maximum net advance of 6 cents, paying $1.07 1-2
for this month's delivery. Increases
of less sensational character were
recorded at Kansas City, St. Louis,
Omaha and Chicago, and immense
stocks of grain in the elevators in
tne latter place acted as a check to
advanced prices, wheat going up,
however, about 3 cents within 24
..ours. In Seattle prices stiffened
In sympathy with Chicago, and was
aided materially in the fact that the
heavy demand for flour in the Orient
had already created a brisk market
in Seattle, and every steamer is tak,-
ing great quantities of flour, tteci-
procity's rejection is not the only
cause that has sent prices upwards
in the neighboring market, for the
tendency was upwards even while it
was expected that reciprocity would
carry. Receipts of wheat are unusually heavy. So pressing is the demand for flour from China and Japan
that Seattle millers are now booking
orders for deliveries as far distant
as January. Every mill on Puget
Sound Iras sold practically all the
i.our it can produce during the next
inree months, and millers are now
booking orders for delivery next year.
There is some satisfaction for Canadians in this, however, when it is
taken into account that this side of
the boundary will benefit likewise
hy such large demand in the Orient,
for it is generally known among trade
circles that Canadian flour is a large
factor in making up these orders for
the Oriental trade, because the American miller repacks the Canadian
product into sacks bearing his own
U. S. A. mark, and the Canadian
producer stands by Idly caring little
for national advertisement so long as
he finds a market for his goods."
 o	
MAKING ...ii  PEACE
The New York Herald's financial
correspondent in Paris says it will
take Germany years to recover from
the Moroccan war scare.    He writes:
"For many years tlie economic evolution of German and the great expansion of her commerce and Industry have forced her to have ever
grr ater recourse to credit.
"The military power of tiro Empire, ii must be admitted, lias facilitated t Iris. Foreign money has
pouied in from all sides, especially
from England and still more from
Prance, to German banks, where ii
was at once employed al very remu-
ii'iiil ive rates of interest.
"At the presenut moment German
megalomania Iras put Europe within
a hair's breadth of a universal war,
ine consequences of which would be
Incalculable. The Berlin Bourse
took fright, savings hank depositors
lost their heads and rushed to oftain
repayment. It is not unnatural that
in these conditions foreign countries
should act in the same manner and
call In the capital they have invested
In Germany.
"The movement in this sense is
general and the German market will
have to face demands for repayment;
not. only from London and Paris, but
also from St. Petersburg, Vienna and
even Peru."
Here is another proof of the essential truth of Norman Angell's dictum
that the time has come when no nation can afford to go to war. Science
and commerce between them will ere
ong permanently retire tlie war lord.

The ballots will accompany the pamphlets, and they will be issued as
soon as possible in October.
Separate colors are being used for
the ballots lo be used by the elders,
the members other than elders, and
the adherents, Hie respective colors
being blue, white and red. Ten thousand is the number to be sent out to
elders, three hundred thousand to
the membership, and about 20 per
cent of this number, or sixty thousand, wil' be sent to adherents, to
ask whether they concur, although
the.r vote would not affect the result apart from that of the membership of the Church either way.
Every congregation will be expected to ballot on the Church union
question before Alarch 15. Each congregation will report then to the
clerk of its presbytery, and the presbytery clerks, about seventy in number, will collate these returns and
send them, before Alarch 25, to the
clerk of the General Assembly and
the secretary of the Union committee, wha will, in turn, report to the
General Assembly at its meeting in
June.
The Union Committee appointed by
the General Assembly consists of
Rev. Dr. Patrick of Winnipeg, chairman; Rev. E. D. McLaren, secretary; Rev. R. P. MacKay,moderator;
and the clerks, Rev. Dr. Campbell of
..rontreal and Rev. Dr. John Somer-
ville of Toronto. Dr. Patrick is at
present In the old country, very ill.
Dr. McLaren recently removed to
Vancouver, on relinquishing his work
at home mission secretary.
The ballots will contain two plain
questions: "Are you in favor of union with the Methodist and Congregational Churches?" and, "Do you
favor the proposed basis of union?"
Any congregation or session of members is at liberty to make any sug-
gestlon as to improvement in the
basis of union; these suggestions will
be reported to tlie clerk of the rpes-
bytery, to be submitted to the committee to consider revision of the
basis before final adoption.
The Congregatlonallsts have already voted on tlie basis in their congregations, about 80 per cent having
de.dared in favor of the basis out of
the whole number voting, which w*as
aoout half the entire membership of
the denomination.
The Alethodist General Conference
left the matter of submission to the
people In the hands of the General
Conference Serial Committee, wliich
acts as an executive in tlie interval
between the quadrrenial sessions of
the conference. The General Conference, the Annual Conferences and
the District .Meetings have declared
their position, so thai il now rests
with the Quarterly Official Boards
and the members of the congregations lo signify.their will ill the matter. Tbe spor in] committee will meet
on October 18, Immediately following the close of the Ecumenical Conference, and this will be one of the
chief Items of business to come be-
t'oi'i It, though other Importanl questions will also have io be decided.
owing t.r the difficulty of getting
' opes of the basis Into the bands of
: embership before the November
meetings of tbe official boards of
' ' hurches, the boards will probably nol deal with the question till
the February meeting. Tlie general
conference special committee will
therefore probably deride to ask the
official boards to make their decision
not later than their February meeting. Then tbe vote of tire membership may be taken between February
and May. The report of both the
official board vole and the members'
vote will be sent on by the circuit
secretaries to'Hie lay district meetings, wliich will collate tbe votes and
send them to the annual conferences,
meeting in June. The conference
secretaries will in turn forward the
result to Rev. Dr. T. A. Moore, secretary of the. general conference, and
another meeting of tire committee
will likely be held aboul this time
next year to take final action.
PEACE UNATTAINABLE
German    Vice   Admiral    Has
Faith in  Internationa]
Arbitration
Attic
Vice Admiral con Ahleteld, retired,
discussed in the Deutsche Revue the
question of "World Peace." The last
two German chancellors, Prince Bur-
low and Dr. von Bethmann Hollweg,
have, he says, declared with all the
emphasis which their official responsibility places at their disposal that
disarmament, an international court
or orbatration, and world peace, are
very fine things, but that they are
practically unattainable. We who
have always maintained that there
can be no international court of arbitration, he declares, triumph doubly;
firstly, because the German chancellors have not only foreseen tnat is
right, but have had the courage to
express their opinion openly, and in
spite of the great crowd of hopeful
friends of peace. We e'onsider, he
adds, that this is a sure sign that
German foreign politics are directed
with sound understanding and form
courage. When a country wishes to
avoid war, says the writer, it will
endeavor to do so, but when it does
not cherish this wish it will send no
delegates or will instruct its commissioners iu accordance with its intentions; in other words: "Nothing has
been changed or improved in regard
to tiie prospects of eternal peace ei-
e...eir by the Anglo-American so-called arbitration treaty'or by President
Taft's latest circular, and least of all
by the expressive but empty appeal
of German-Americans to us, their
compatriots."
Vice Admiral von Ahlefeld also
points out that Sir Edward Grey's
peace speech in the House of Commons on Alarch 13 last, was received
with extraordinary rejoicing, but that
in the first place the British minister declared that the way to the
court of arbitration was very long,
and in the second place he acquisced
in a naval programme of unparalleled
size. In opposition to Air. Carnegie,
the writer contends that wars, though
they appear at the moment to be
harmful and painful, like operations
on sick persons, are nevertheless useful and salutary to mankind when
their effect is considered only from
the higher nistorcal point of view.
He refrains from quoting the reasons
advanced by men such as Kant, Nelson, Aloltke and Ruskin for the usefulness and necessity of wars, and
wishes only to repeat that wars, that
is, just wars as dislntguished from
those waged from personal malignity
or from the mere lust of conquest,
have often prompted culture or at
least civilization, and certainly the
perfection of the human race. Civllza-
tion, like wheat, grows best, he said,
on ground that has been ploughed;
that is to say, on ground that has
been forcibly freed of all wild growing plants and that has been manured. Air. Carnegie's "Fifty million
dollar peace fund," he declares to
be an action directed against the promotion of the perfection of the human race, and "we are sorry for him
that he should have committed such
a mistake."
The vice admiral concludes his
ariicle as follows: "According to
natural laws only the weaker and
inferior will and must go down. That
this is so is salutary from the oint
of view of tire perfection of the human race, and who the weaker is
can be determined only by war, never
by a court of arbitration. People
who are well acquainted witli the
African hunting grounds assure us
that game thrives best when il grows
up with bests of prey. As soon, however, as over-wise man kills off lhe
predatory animals for Hie sake of
eternal peace the high class game
also disappears. In this case, too,
nature teaches that fighting ennobles
while peace leads to degeneration.
Our view is therefore expressed ;n a
few words: Comprehensive world
courts of arbitration are an absolute
Impossibility; if they were possible
they would not give' us world , '-ih <•
and ii they gavi' us world peace it
would l e n mls'ortune for tho ;" i tec-
tlon of the human race."

ULTIMATUM   SENT
The Final Note That Resulted in Hostilities Between Italy and
Turkey.
Italian   .Minister'   Sent   Statement
Situation   Regarding;
Tripoli
of
Previous to hostilties the Italian
minister of foreign affairs, Marquis
Di San Giuliano, addressed to the
Italian charge d'affaires at Constantinople, Signor di Alartino, a note
which  said:
"During a long series of years the
government of Italy never ceased to
make representations to tlie Porte
on the absolute necessity of correcting the state of disorder to which
the government of Turkey has abandoned Tripoli and Cyrene. These regions should be admitted to the benefits ol* the progress realized by other
parts of the .Mediterranean and
Africa.
"The transformation, which is Imposed by the general exigencies of
civilization, constitutes for Italy a vital interest of the first order, by reason of the slight distance separating
these countries from the coasts of
Italy. Notwithstanding the moderation and patience shown by the government of Italy, its views concerning Tripoli have been badly received
by the imperial government, but more
than that, all enterprises on tlie part
of Italians in the regions mentioned
has been systematically opposed and
unjustly crushed.
"The imperial government, which,
to the present time, has shown constant hostility toward all legitimate
activity in Tripoli and Cyrene, has
by an act in the last hour proposed
to the royal government to come to
an agreement, and has declared itself
disposed to accord all economic concessions compatible with the treaties
in force and in accordance with the
dignity and superior interests of Turkey; but the royal government does
not believe in measures taken at this
hour which resemble the negotiations of which it has had experience
in the past, which have demonstrated
from their futility and which, remote
from constituting a guaranty for the
future, would be themselves permanent causes of disagreement and conflict.
"The royal government has received from its consular agents in
ii-ipoli and Cyrene information that
tne situation is extremely grave, because of the agitation prevailing
against Italian subjects and which
is incited in evident, fashion by officers and other functionaries of authority.
"This agitation constitutes an immediate danger, not only to Italian
subjects, but to l'roeigners of all nationalities, which requires them, for
their own safety, to embark and leave
Tripoli without delay.
'The arrival at Tripoli of Ottoman
transports, which the government has
not failed to observe, appears preliminary to serious events, aggravates
the situation and imposes on tlie
royal government an obligation absolutely to prepare for the dangers
which will result.
"The Italian government, having
the intention henceforth to protect
Its interests and dignity, lias decided
to proceed to the military occupation
of Tripoli and Cyrene.
"This situation is the only one that
will give Italy power to itself decide
and itself attend to thai which the
imperial government does not do.
"The royal government demands
that the Imperial government shall
give orders that the actual Ottoman
representative shall not oppose the
measure which will, in consequence,
in. necessary to effect this solution.
An ultimate agreement will lie re-
ii ii Chi eel between the two governments
to regulate tbe definite situation
siiuatlon which will arise.
"The royal embassy at Constantinople i- ordered in demand a decisive
reply on this subject from ihe Otto-
inan governmenl within twenty-four
hours of the presentation to the Porte
of ihe present document, in default
of which tlie Italian government will
consider Itself obliged to proceed Immediately with measures destined to
assure the occupation, it is asked
in addition that the response of the
forte within the period ol twenty-
four hours shall be communicated
also through the British embassy at
Rome.

TIMBER  (ONSKIU ATION
Views Expressed by  II. .1. Palmer- of
the ( Ire'inainus Mills on Subject
In his evidence before the tax commission at Vancouver, E. .1. Palmer
of the Chemainus .Mills discussed the
by-products of lumber. When asked
if he thought it possible to save these
iu the present condition of the market, he said he did not care to express an opinion, but that there was
a wasteage going on constantly which
he thought could be avoided. lie
said that in logging off lands it was
impossible to avoid the destruction
of large numbers of trees suitable for
idling, railway ties and other purposes for which small trees can be
used. If it were possible to save
the smaller trees, they would, after
a time, become saw logs, but It is
not possible, for even when they escape destruction when Hie larger
trees are felled, those that do fall
furnish food for fire and in many instances they, the standing small trees,
and too frequently the adjoining
large timber, are destroyed. Mr.
Palmer thought it would be well to
remove the restriction from the exportation of such small stuff. He
did not confine his suggestion to such
of it as might be cut upon lands that
were about to be logged off, but possibly a regulation could be devised
that would meet the case in this
respect.
Air, Palmer said that by removing
this restriction a valuable asset would
be saved and converted into money,
the province would be in receipt of
some additional revenue, the danger
of fire losses would be reduced, a
profitable line of foreign commerce
would be developed, and employment
would be given to a good deal of
additional labor. A suggestion of
this kind from a practical man ought
not to he lightly brushed aside.
 o —
It looks as if La Presse, the newspaper wliich so violently combatted
Air. Borden during the recent electoral campaign, was about at tlie
parting of the Way, as the proprietor
of that paper recently stated that La
Presse was prepared to give the premier-elect fair play. In fact, he said
he considered Air. Borden to be a
man of broad views, too broad, in
fact, for some of his Ontario friends,
who he thought wanted a man more
to their own liking.

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Alonarch Ranges are built so Jhat they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening into the body there
Is a   Alalleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed in such joints.    They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical'too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus  stove bolts  and  stove putty.    It's
Important  to  every  one  using  or  buying
a range.
