STEAMER TEES HITS
IN BARKLEY SOUND
C.P.R. Vessel Went on Rocks Last Evening  But Gets
off at High Tide This Morning—No
Serious Damage Done.
The C. P. R. steamer Tees, under
command of Captain Gillam, struck
on one of the Barkley Sound islands
last evening at !l o'clock. She was
floated about 10:26 this morning,
according to a wireless message received here at noon. The vessel is
not supposed to be very seriously injured.
The Journal's correspondent in
Victoria gives the following details
of the accident:
Steamer Tees, Capt. Gillam, of the
C. P. R., returning from the west
coast of Vancouver Island went
ashore at 9 p. m. yesterday at Gow-
land Islet.
The passengers landed and proceeded to Toquart.
The steamer, which struck during
a heavy snowstorm Is not in serious
position. She struck by the bow,
damaging her  forefoot,  but  has no

water in her holds. The sea was
smooth and life was not endangered,
by the acident. Capt. Gillam reported that the vessel would be floated
at high water today.
The wireless message received
from Triangle indicates that the
hopes of the captain were successful.
The fact that the tug William Jol-
llffe, belonging to the Bullens, at Esquimau passed Pacbena early this
morning Indicates that she was on
her way to render assitance, but arrived too late. The tug Jolliffe is
the most powerful on the coast.
The west coast route is the most
trying one during tbe winter months
in the whole C. P. R. coasting serv-
vice and many narrow escapes have
taken place In Capt. Gillam, who
was trained in the run under the late
Capt. Townsend, th.. C. P, R. has a

SKIDEGA'l'E, .inn. 2-'.. - On January 2:;, He- whole village of Skide-
gate was in holiday dress and every-
bodj seemed to be in unusually good
spirits.
The cause of II ail was the marriage of Mr, Frank Tulip to Mrs.
Mary Calder, both of Skideg ite.
The groom was supported by tout
: -,-. usui -n and i lie Snide was attended by four young ladles beautifully
attired. The Dride was tastefull;
attired in gray, with long bridal veil
.ill! flowers.
The paiiy   was  escorted     to     (he
church   by - ihe     Ski leguti      Corne
Band.
The cermony was performed by
ir. Spencer. After congratulations
u ihe churi li the I city was led by
the hand from the church to the
town hall, under a shower of rice
most of the way.
In tiie hall were four long tables
uniquely set and laden with good
icings for ihe many friends of both
bride and groom who sat down to
the wedding repast, Among them
was a number of while friends from
Queen Charlotte City and elsewhere.
Tbe repast being ended, quite a
number volunteered addresses and,
judging from ih-- laughter which
characterized the delivery of them,
i.hey were thoroughly enjoyed.
The hall was Ihcn cleared and the
i veiling was given up to amusemi ills.

The old reliable Amur visited
Skidegate on tlie 24th, Capt. Locke
and his officers always have the best
wishes of Skidegate people, especially Mr. Bird, purser, who is exceedingly obliging. There were seventeen passengers from the Indjan village.
The weather has been quite cold
for the last I wo weeks. About ten
inches of snow covers the ground
along  the  beach.
A few aardy spirits are spending
their time prospecting and staking
coal claims.
The seventeen Indians who came
over from Port Simpson on the last
trip of tlie Amur on an evangelistic
trip have done good work. Quite
a number of the Skidegate band
have been encouraged to take higher
spiritual ground. They know how
to approach their brethren better
than foreigners do. As they leave
they have the best wishes of the
community here.
The villagers are putting in a system of water pipes.

JOE MARTIN'S VIEWS
Old Time Liberal Leader Has Lost yM
Faith in That
Party.
He Charges All Kinds of Corruption
in   the   Disposition   of
Offices
The "Tweed" affair in New York,
said Joseph Martin, member in the
Imperial house, in an interview In
Vancouver, when discussing the Liberal party In Canada, was not to be
compared with the position of affairs
here.
"Two members oul of forty-two In
tlie Provincial house! Two memberB
oul of seven in the Dominion house!
One of the latter elected under very
suspicious circumstances for, if there
bad been a tight, lie would not have
been elected. And ine other one
would not have been elected unless
the opposition had run two candidates!"
"What was the cause?"
"The cause was that the Dominion
government, allowed appointments
of all kinds, and contracts of all
kinds, to he put up and sold at a
certain price."
"What, Mr. Martin, are the means
of salvation?"
"There are none," replied Mr.
Martin, "while the Liberal government kept selling Iheir goods, as
they practically did, openly in the
market to the highest bidder, there
could be no change."
Suppose any event should happen
which would leave the Liberal party
without I heir present leader, did ..e
think that would tend to any change,
Mr. Martin was asked, and he said
that he most decidedly did not
think so. Neither did lie thing there
was any hope in the leaving of it to
the conscience of the Liberal party.
The methods of the "grafters" would
ne. r s top until the Liberals wi ni
out of i ower, lie said.
Mr. Martin wenl on to stale that if
the Liberals would stop the grafl
thi ri i. ould be no trouble at all, and
they could easily slop it, but they
kepi it. up because lliey though!
there was profit In it. it did not, look
at all as if the Liberal government
were likely to alter their methods,
he continued, as they had been going on now for seven or eight years
or longer. He knew that the Independent Liberals of Vancouver and
ihe province had. been stirring up
matters to such an end for years,
but they had new got tired of it all.
It was suggested that his departure from the scene of action might
have been greatly responsible. Was
he not wanted back again here as
a leader?
Keen, watchful, and alert, as be
always is, Mr. Martin's face took on,
perhaps, for a moment, a look of increased interest—as in the case of a
warhorse scenting the battle from
afar—but he confessed he could now
do nothing. He had done his best
while he was here, and he could do
nothing more.
"Do you think, Mr. Martin, that
matters politically are as bad now
as they were on the occasion of your
last visit?"
Mr. Martin said that he had no
reason to suppose they were any better. They never could be any better while the Liberal government
kept disgracefully selling its goods
in the way they did, and so long as
they kept on selling, (lie people
would buy. For that he did not
blame the people. He blamed tbe
Liberal government. They were tbe
"grafters." It would never be
stopped until the Liberals went out
of power.
The times had been good since the
Liberals went into power, and that
counted for a good deal but he also
thought that the Conservative party
had been weake rthan it should have
been. They had not, said "Fighting
Joe, ' attacked the government for
one-half the things they should have
done, and he thought that several
times Mr. Borden had failed to grasp
the situation.
li was no surprise to Mr. Martin
to hear of the revelations which had
come out at the Royal Commission
on Chinese Immigration with regard
in the part played by Mr. Kelly and
the Liberal executive in this city,
was it any surprise to him
to hear that It had been su ;ge
thai Mr. Robert Kelly had "led"
Hon. Mr. Templeman. That latter
met had been known for some time.
In fact, il  had always been the case.
Nol only in one or two ways, but
In a very great number of ways, remarked Mr.  Martin, Vancouver and

SHEEP FOR ISLAfl
Plans Advanced for Putting ap  Packing
House on Massett
Inlet.
Flock of Thirty Thousand  Reported
to Be Sent to Queen Charlotte Islands
A contract Is being arranged with
the Grand Trunk Pacific line by a
Syndicate backed by eastern capital
to transfer 30,000 sheep from the
ranges of Oregon by way of Seattle
to Virago Sound on the west coast of
Masset Inlet, Graham Island, Where
a sheep station has been established
to prepare for t.lie big herds to he
taken north. The sheep will be trans-
pouted to Seattle by rail and will be
loaded on the steamer Hehriette,
now engaged in transporting construction material to Virago Sound
for the new wfhaling station or the
Canadian Northern I'aci lie Fisheries
company at Naden harbor, says reports from the soulh.
Cain. Nicholson, who was in the
city this week, said he knew of the
negotiations but did not know that
the proposition had been decided
yet.
F. B. Allard, of Seattle, is negotiating with the Grand Trunk Pacific company for the transfer of the
big herds of sheep. On behalf of
the syndicate he has taken up a large
tract of land on the west coast of
Massett Inlet and has built a substantial floa.t in deep water at Naden
harbor at which the Henrlette will
land for the discharge of the sheep.
The syndicate proposes to graze
sheep extensively on the grazing
grounds of northern Graham Island
and the 30,000 Sheep to be taken
north during the next twelve months
by the Henriotte will- be the nucleus
of immense herds. It is proposed to
establish a large packing house on
the island for the export of mutton,
and with the completion of the new
transcontinental irailroad in the
north from Prince Rupert they expect to have a great market in the
north as wel las in the west nad middle states.
It is proposed to carry about a
thousand sheep on each trip of the
Henrietta which will be engaged for
many months in the business. The
mildness of the climate on the northern island and the fact that few animals have been grazed there, has induced the syndicate, after a thorough examination of the land, to
select Graham Islnd for thea purpose
of extensively raising and exporting
mutton.
For some years a large band of
wild cattleo has roamed at large between Skidegate and Massett on the
coast of Graham Island, .living on
the wild grasses and each summer
the settlers, survey parties and others have obtained fresh beef from
this herd which still appears to
thrive and increase.
 o	
RIVER IS FROZEN
NEW WESTMINSTER—The harbor of New Westminster is again
practically free from ice, which at
no time became an obstruction to
shipping. During the severest hours
of the cold snap the ice floes, which
had drifted down from the upper
reaches of the Fraser river, bound
together. The government steel
dredge Fruhling came up from the
mouth of the river cutting a channel
through. The government tender
Petrel made three trips along tho
channel, keeping the broken Ice moving. The Petrel Is a stoutly built
boat and able to rope with light Ice,
according to the statement of Mr.
Bayfield, superintendent of dredges.
Two larger and more powerful tenders, one under construction ai
North Vancouver tlie other shortly to
be commenced, will he available
should the ice at any lime reach a
thickness with which smaller boats
cannot cope. These vessels are net
Ice-breakers, but Mr. Bayfield considers them to be sufficient to break-
any blockade that may be threatened
in the Fraser river.
 o	
Nineteen milion dollars Is the
neat little profit that made in a
coal deal entered into a few months
ago by a number of Seattle and Vancouver capitalists, who took an option on seventy-five square miles of
bituminous coal lands near Telkwa,
on the G. T. P. west of Fort George.
They sold the projeot to an English
syndicate headed by Sir Arthur
Pearson, principal stockholder in
Pearson's Magazine, for $20,000,-
000.

\\ IRELESS  SERVICE
it is gratifying Ind 1 to residents
of Prince Rupert to have the advantage in the witch's sservice furnished
by the Dominion government and
which has proved of such Inestimable
advantage since II was placed on the
coast. Prince Rupert for a considerable time was placed al a disadvantage In nol having this system made
available here, owing to Ihe fact,
that all messages had to come
through the Dominion telegraph office and the public works department
under which that service is maintained insisted upon charging for the
messages.
It was never the inlentinn that
the wireless service on this coast in
so far as shipping reports were concerned, at least, should be a source of
revenue. The stations were put in
as aids to navigation following a lamentable loss of life by several marine accidents on this coast a few
years ago. It was then felt that if
by a system of wireless anything
could be done to avoid such a heavy
toll of life, ii should be provided and
made free just as any other aids to
navigation are made available.
By telephonic connection with the
wireless station Prince Rupert is in
the same position as other ports
where wireless is provided. The improved condition has been a little
slow in coming, lint Is nevertheless,
welcome now that it is here. The introduction of the wireless system on
the coast has undoubtedly assisted
very materially in reducing the number of disasters on this coast. It is
an impossibility to estimate what has
been accomplished but the introduction of it has removed many of the
terrors of navigation.
Late. Such a statement is absolutely
false, li is safe to say that not a
day passes without its sales and the
teal Estate exchange reports a
. iady demand for property.
Property is not held in Prince Ru-
pert as il is in Vancouver as a gamble
11 is held here as an absolutely safe.
Investment, There has never been
any attempt to "wild cat" In tha
city's real estate. In consequence
there are opportunities for Investment here that cannot be excelled on
the continent.
DEATH OF
iom:i:i
The death of lion. Forbes George
Vernon, of Victoria, removes another
of ihe men who played an Important
part in the history of the province.
ile spent all the best pari of his life
in British Columbia, taking his share
in public affairs and also investing
in the province. Tlie northern sec-
linn of Ihe country was the sceneof
a good number of his investments
and no small amount of capital was
directed by him to the country that
now is coming into prominence. He
was a large shareholder in the old
Pacific Northern and Omineca railway which was sold a few years ago
to the G. T. P. At the same time a
large group of local claims in the
Telkwa was sold by Mr. Vernon and
his associates to the G. T. P.
The late Mr. Vernon made himself
popular among his many friends. He
was of a jovial nature, a characteristic which, combined with a somewhat abrupt style, made him always
entertaining.
In the earlier days of tbe province
he was prominent in politics, administering the lands and works department in the government.
TO   AFFORD   PROTECTION
VEILED COMPLIMENT
There is no more complimentary
tribute paid to the future of Prince
Rupert than the persistent attempts
made to belitle this city
by other places that now rank as
cities of the first importance. If
Prince Rupert is to amount to nothing why should her existence cause
residents of a place the size of Vancouver to take occasion in season
and out of season to belittle it?
The truth is the city in the south
fears the commercial rivalry of this
centre. We do not believe that the
building ii)i of a great metropolis
here will take away from the other
cities in the south. As Prince Rupert grows she will build up a tradi
largely her own, without, taking
away from centres already in exist-
ence. A studious attempt, however,
has been made to detract from this,
city and malicious falsehoods con
corning conditions here have been?
circulated from time to time. Tlie
coming summer is likely to quiet a
lot of these reports. There will be
a tremendous number of visitors to
the place by the excellent, steamboat
service that is provided. Last year
every visitor went away delighted
with  the outlook.
Minister at Ottawa Says the Government   Is Taking Steps in
That Direction
111 the house of commons a lew
days ago G. II. Barnard called the
attention of the government to the
poaching by the United States fishermen in Canadian waters off the
coast, of British Columbia. Poachers,
he said were taking fish off the west
coast of Vancouver Island', and the
fishery protection cruiser Kestrel
had been ordered ot cruise in Hecate Strait, which was not now frequented by fishermen. The Kestrel
was, he asserted, absolutely unfitted
for her task. She was too slow and
was not equipped with a wireless
telegraph apparatus as were the
poachers' vessels. He did nof believe that itihe cruiser Rainbow
would be able to cope with the' situation because of her great draught.
He showed that gasoline' cruisers'capable of travelling from 20 to 25
knots an hour were required.
Mr. Rrodeur replied that he .lid
not think the Rainbow would be entirely useless. He added that the
government, was- taking the necessary steps for the protection of the
fisheries, but he? did not wish publicly to announce the plan of campaign.

DEFENCE OF POLICY
Premier McBride Replies to His Critics
Relative to Canadian
Northern.
Be Tells of the Quickening of Business us a Result of Com.
jinny's Coming
In Ihe debate upon the address of
His Honor the Lieut. Governor, Premier McBride made a speech In the
legislature a few days ago in reply to
the Liberal rrilicism as to the Canadian   Northern   construction.     H.  C.
Brewster,  tho  Liberal  leader,    had
preceded  the  premier.     He  devoted
himself chiefly to criticising the McBride administration because the Canadian Northern railway had not yet
.started construction    on Vancouver
Island.    He stated  that during the
last campaign the premier had given
an understanding that lie would re-
. sign if work was not started within
three  months  after   the   agreement
was   signed.     He   wished   to   know
where that resignation and those of
the other members for Victoria were.
He said it was significant also that
though the  Nelson   convention  had
passed a resolution urging    a   land
settlement policy he saw no notice
of it in the Speech from the Throne,
He considered it a very significant
- omission as there was a crying need
for settlement.       He also criticised
the government school policy, saying
lack of educational facilities was retarding settlement in rural districts
and   urged   the   government  should
give more and.    Incidentally, in the
course  of  his  speech,   he  remarked
that if the ipremler went to the coro
nation,   he  hoped   that     when     the
house  met  next session  he    should
have the pleasu reof addressnig "Sir
Richard    McBride," an    observation
that provoked loud applause.
Premier's Reply
Mr. McBride, taking up the criti
■ cism of Mr. Brewster's speech, dealt
at   length   with   the   accusation   that
he  had  been  false  to  his  pledge in
connection  with  the  construction  of
the   Canadian   Northern   railway   on
Vancouver Island.     He pointed    out
that it would  have  been easily possible   to   have   the   company     build
two or three miles  of  line, but he
wanted something    permanent    and
satisfactory.    During the past    year
surveyors had changed their    plans
and  recommended  a  different route
-than  first proposed.     Till their reports were completed it would have
been most unwise to venture on any
construction,  whatever  the political
effect.     If  the   Canadian     Northern
was to compete successfully with the
C.   P.  R.  it must  have the    easiest
grades and a delay that secured such
grades was well advised. Surveys for
the first twenty or thirty miles were
now complete, and he had no doubt
contracts would be let forthwith and
grading  proceeded  with.     Work  on
the mainland was going on well.  All
contracts for the coast division had
been  let  and   he  expected     to    see
trains running over that section next
fall.    Contracts for grading tlie sections to Kamloops and up the North
Thompson were being called for and
should   be  let  within   the  year.
Benefits Derived
Already the business for the province  had  been   quickened  by  Canadian   Northern   construction     which
had   infused   an   atmosphere   of  optimism everywhere and he had greatest  confidence that  the line would
be completed within four years.    In
view of the continued delays In  the
Grand Trunk  Pacific construction It
hardly became a follower of Sir Wilfrid Laurier to criticise the dealings
of   the  government   with   the   Canadian  Northern.    Not only  had  Mackenzie  &   Mann   Quickened   railway
construction, they hand  also undertaken other enterprises, such as Ihe
purchase of the Dunsmuir collieries,
As a result of that It was their Intention lo Increase Hie output of the
mines three-fold and this would mean
more   employees   and   greater   business.     He  was  pie, med   to  see  that
their ability had been recognized In
the capital of the Empire by knighthood.
Land Policy
Turning to the criticism of the
land policy he pointed out that the
rural population of the province had
doubled within the past five years.
That land was not held for speculators was shown by the fact that of
twenty-eight million acres of land
available for agriculture in the province, twenty-three millions had been
reserved for pre-emptors. While the
government had realized large sums
from land sales, the money had been
put Into the development of rural
districts by public works.
"'he government did  this because
they recognized that settlement here
was attended with difficulties unknown in the prairie provinces. In
this country the land most available
and easy of settlement was that
owned by the Dominion government
in the railway belt sof the C. P. R
and E. & N., and he asked Mr. Brewster what the Dominion government
had done to secure settlement of
these lands. The Provincial government had received    offers    from
Ionization companies who wished
lo buy land at a nominal price and
place settlers on it, but the govern-
neut were of the opinion that it was
.heir duty to do such work them
selves and not entrust it to private
companies.
He declared that the government
bad dealt generously with rural
schools which were more efficient
under the sohool act that under the
former system. In conclusion he
praised very highly the work of the
forestry commission and fire insurance commission.

IN SOUTH AFRICA
Duke of Connaught Pleased With Conditions as He Found Them in
lew Dominion.
Union Is Solidly Based,  He  Believes
—Races Are Drawing Closer
Together
Speaking to   an   interviewer    regarding his South African tour, th
Duke of Connaught said:
"You are authorized to state that
we are much pleased with the recep
Hon accorded to us in South Africa
The enthusiastic character of the reception was by no means restricted
to the towns where the great major
ity of tlie population Is of British
descent."
The duke added that in the course
of his long journey he always endeavored to see and talk to representatives of all shades of political
feeling and of all the principal sections of the population. His Royal
Highness has therefore had, considering the short time he spent in the
country, what was probably an unequalled opportunity of judging of
matters concerning the welfare of
South Africa.
Speaking ot the prospects of the
country under the Union, His Royal
I Ugliness said:
"From the knowledge I have obtained, as the result of the opportunities I have mentioned, I consider
that the Union is solidly based, and
that its establishment holds out
great promise for the prosperity of
the land comprised within the four
amalgamated colonics. That there
should have been sacrifices of local
interest was Inevitable, and with
those I expressed sympathy on various public occasions; bul I trust thai
what the Union lias taken away with
one hand It may repay abundantly
with tile other. Thai the Union
should be established without a number of minor dissentions and without
political strife was unlikely, but it is
really remarkable how far the Union
lias already become a reality and not
a name only. This is In a large
measure due to the action of the
members of the houses of parliament
who have dealt with many Important
matters, particularly the education
question, in a way calculated to
placate both great political parties.
The duke laid special emphasis on
this matter, and made more than one
reference to it in the course of conversation.
Dealing next with the relations between Dutch and English, His Royal
Highness said: "The two races,
whose Interests were for generations
opposed, have settled down with the
"irm intention of working together.
It  is  impossible that there    should
never be questions in which a line
of cleavage of opinion lies between
those two races, but with the mutual
respect which exists between English
and Dutch there is no reason why
racial disagreements should not
steadily diminish until those two
great racial descriptions are merged
in the appellation of South African."
With regard to the tour itself,
though their Royal Highnesses were
much tired with the hard work gone
through during the five weeks of receptions, official functions and travel
preceding their embarkation at Durban, they soon threw off their fatigue after a few ilays ai sea, and
are in the best possible health.
PASSING OF PIONEER
Forbes Vernon, a Well-Known  Figure in  Province,  Dies ill
London
The death occurred In London,
a few days ago, after a prolonged illness, of one of the leading pioneer
residents and chief figures in the
early life of the province of British
Columbia in the person of Hon.
Forbes George Vernon.
The late gentleman, who had an
Interesting political career In this
province, was the third son of J. E.
Vernon, D. L., of Clontarf Castle,
Dublin, Ireland, where he was born
in 1843, His family was one of the
oldest and most Illustrious of England, took Its name from the town
of Vernon in Normandy, and was
established in England by one of the
companions In arms of William the
Conqueror. In the fifteenth century
a branch of the family was established at Clontarf and acquired large
estates there, which are at present
owned by the family. The castle on
the estate, which is historically celebrated, was founded by the Knights
Templar in tlie twelfth century and
was rebuilt after the original design
by the present owners.
The late Mr. Vernon was educated
in England for the Royal Engineers
and in IS03 received a commission
from the Imperial government. He
resigned this, however, shortly after
it had been granted and in the same
year, 1SG3, in company with his
brother and Col. Haughton, came to
British Columbia where they engaged in ranching and mining in
Yale district. After a time, Mr.
Vernon took over the management of
the entire business and soon became
possesed of one of the finest farms
in the province.
In 1S75 he first offered himself
as a oandidate to represent the important aistrict of Yale in the provincial legislature and was returned
by a large majority. In February,
187(i he accepted the portfolio of
chief commissioner of lands and
works in the Elliott cabinet, and on
returning to the people for confirmation in this position was re-elected.
This position he retained until the
general election of 1878, when he
was re-elected by his eonstiuents, but
in consequence of the defeat of the
Elliott administration, Mr. Vernon
was in opposition.
In 1SS2 he was not a candidate for
re-election, but in 1S80 he was again
returned, and on the death, In 1SS7
of Hon. Mr. Smythe, he accepted office in the Davis government as chief
commisioner of lauds and works. At
the general elections in 1890 he was
again returned by his constituents,
and was given the position of chief
commissioner of lands and works in
the Robson government. He also
held the portfolio of mines and agriculture in the Davie government during its term of office, between June,
1892, and March, 1895, and on the
advent of the Turner government In
the same year retired from politics.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
HONORABLE CUSTODY
British  Prisoners  Convicted  as  Spies
are Well Treated in
Germany,
The  Conditions   Under  Which  They
Live Are Not nt All
Irksome
Some people imagine that Captain
Trench and his brother officer, who
were convicted of spying on German
territory, are probably languishing
in a common jail. Such is not the
case. They are sent to fortresses in
""Honorable      custody." Captain
Trench is at Glatz, about which a
prisoner who spent three months
there, says:
"I arrived at Glatz from Berlin,
and went to an excellent hotel where
I slept before presenting myself to
the commanding officer of the fortress,   General   .     Next  morning
I expected to meet a 'fire-eater,' but
instead of that I saw before me a
benevolent looking chivalrous old
man, who looked at me through his
eyeglasses. The general said to me:
'Your arrival was announced, but I
cannot yet put you up In the fortress.
I thought you would come tomorrow
or the day after, and have not yet
had your room heated. It Is extremely cold In the fortress now.
Just wander about the town today,
meanwhile I will have all preparations made for your reception, and
towards evening everything will be
ready for your visit.' The general
then mentioned several regulations,
saying that whenever allowed leave
beyond the fortress boundaries prisoners must not go beyond a radius
of two miles.
"Towards evening I ascended a
steep hill to tlie fortress and
knocked at the heavy portal, whereupon a sentry appeared. I said, '1
am a new prisoner,' and the sentry
replied, '1 know everything; your
room is well heated, and the lamp is
lighted.' I was ushered into an immense room lighted by a petroleum
lamp suspended from Ihe ceiling. In
the background was a camp bed,
and near it a stove, a small table,
two chairs and a washstand. Since
that time the conditions have
changed radically, and now prisoners
in the fortress have much more luxurious quarters. A few minutes
later another soldier entered the
room, saluted, and reported himself
for service.    Up  till  this  moment I
had not fully realized tlte luxuries of
'honorable custody' in tlie fortress.
This soldier had come to place himself at my disposal and to act as my
valet during my period of detention.
"That first evening I sent my visiting card by my soldier valet to all
the other gentlemen in 'honorable
custody' in the fortress, and begged
them to return my call personally
and without delay. It would be improper for me to mention the names
of my guests at the banquet which
ensued, because many of them are
today occupants of high offices, and
have been recipients of notable
marks of distinction, but that evening remains as memorable as the
liberal measures or freedom allowed
us by General  .    Certainly, the
fortress is not an ideal place of residence, but since I was there I have
often been seized with a longing to
once more be there and to enjoy that
magnificent outlook over the mountains which presents Itself to the
lover of nature. In winter and
spring one can have a fine time at
Glatz, even if one be a British captain convicted of espionage."

Figures made public here today
by the British na\al authorities show
that despite the establishment ot
Andrew Carnegie's $10,000,000
peace fund and the activities of The
Hague Tribunal, the year 1911 will
break all records for the launching
of battleships.
From February 1 until December
water in some part of the globe
every nine days. Thirty-six will be
launched in all, or only two less
than the number already afloat as
the result of five years' launches.
Of these sea monsters, Great Britain will launch 11; Germany 7;
Russia and the United States, 4
each. France, Chile and Japan will
each have I wo to take the wafer,
end Italy, Austria, Brazil and Spain
will each launch one.
The total value of tlie battleships
and cruisers now on the ways of the
world's shipyards is placed at Uhe
enormous sum of $700,000,000.

HUGE   STAMP   FACTORY
British   Government   Printers    Turn
Out  Postage Stamps at Rale
of   Million   an   Hour
Messrs. Harrison & Sons of
London, the government printers, who have secured the official
contract for printing postage stamps
for 1911 and onwards, have built
an entirely new factory covering ten
acres of ground near London and
equipped with new and intricate machinery costing many thousands of
pounds. Messrs. Harrison are already turning out stamps at the rate
of a million an hour, and as they
calculate five thousand working
hours to the year the total number
of stamps printed per annum will be
five thousand millions (5,000,000,-
000). The stamps are printed in
sheets of 24 0, which sheets in their
plain form are worth a penny; when
they leave the factory their value is
£1.
At present, Messrs. Harrison are
printing the King Edward stamps. It
is understood that the design for the
King George stamps has been definitely approved, but the government
hs not yet authorized the printing of
them. They will probably be in circulation in six months' time. The
colors of the new issues will not
differ from tlie King Edward
stamps, except possibly those for
higher amounts.

I'AII!   OUTLOOK
Likely to Be Shortage of I'eltos This
Year Owing to Meat Being
Plentiful
The arguments pro and con were
well sei forth on Wednesday night
in a lively debate at the Methodisl
church, on the subject of "Government. Ownership of Public Utilities."
The question was decided by a close
ballot vote in favor of the affirmative. Mr. Walter Shaw in an able,
well-thought-out address, set forth
the reasons why government ownership would be best, lie held that
government as now constituted was
not government in the true or full
si use. that ii was not representative
if all Ihe people by all the people.
Hence it was class government, and
government ownership under it can-
nol he carried out in its more perfect

Sunday night, with  the topic:     "Liv-,m)   rlghl   to   he   charged   up   with   a
usury of profit to any private individual. Private gain on public utilities vitiated the principle that the
value of a thing lay in its adaptation
to use and to tho greatest possible
number. Public ownership, or own-
rship by the whole of what was useful lo Ihe whole encouraged the besl
in men and reduced the temptations
i bi Ifishnesa and greed to a minimum. Vnarchy or Nihilism was confusion in the body politic nad this
was constantly engendered by the
Introduction of the principle of private gain in the use of public utilities.
Mr. Shaw was followed by Mr.
Haniblin, who admitted that government ownership might be all right
and very nice but practically it was
difficult lo gel. the advantages
sought for as in many cases which ne
he cited where it had been tried, it
was found necessary lo go back to
the method of operation of public
utilities by private corporations.
Mr. Button read -Ir. McKay's
brief for ihe affirmative as the latter
was not able to be present. Mr. McKay held to the principle of government ownership, though he acknowledged that it. had its defects, citing
tlie instance locally of the electric
light plant which was being tardily
and painfully brought forth, with the
possible inference that it might be a
stillborn infant, and be no light in
the house after all.
Mr. r>elson closed the argument
for the negative holding that the
probable effectiveness in the practical working of the utility for the
public good would be in favor of the
private company as against the public control. The plant would be
more up-to-date as new equipment
would be installed from time to time
under the pressure of public criticism and the fear of the introduction
of opposition companies. On the
other hand, the great temptation of
governments to graft is increased by
putting ese agencies into their
hands and the shifting of governments whether national or municipal
makes possible an unsettled condition in the handling of these utilities. He favored private corporations bound under the most careful
restrictions.
Other debates will be arranged
and given at the Christian citizenship meetings which are held in connection with the Epworth League
on the last Wednesday evening of
each month. Topic next Wednesday
evening, February first: "Lessons
from the Life of Joseph."

That circumstances prevailing in
the northern districts just now point
to a shortage of the fur crop this
season is the substance of statements
made by the travellers who have recently arrived In Edmonton from
posts In the north where the largest
catches of fur are usually made, says
the  Edmonton  Journal.
It is stated that the caribou are
ariicularly plentiful in tho north
ihis winter and that it is easy for
Ihe natives to kill them and thus
supply themselves with an abundance of fresh meat for winter use.
Consequently the half-breeds and
Indians do not find it necessary to
exert themselves in the work of
trapping fur bearing animals because
the caribou meat will take the place
of bacon and other stuff that they
would derive from the exchange ol
furs at the company trading posts in
the north. For this reason much
less trapping is being carried on than
was done during the cold months of
1910.
Another factor that tends to lessen
the winter activities of the natives
of the north is the exceptionally low
price paid for rat skins this winter.
It. is stated that at Fort Smith rat
pelts are selling at as low a price
as $1 a dozen. Rats are plentiful
this year but in view of all the circumstances it seems hardly worth
while fo rthe trapper to bother his
Lead about them.
If any danger existed of these little animals becoming extinct as a result of the inroads of the fur trappers they will be given a fair chance
to thrive during the present season.
Northern men say that fur of all
kinds is plentiful this winter. Three
or four sliver foxes have already
been bagged In the vicinity of Fort

ROASTING  DICKS
Ducks should be roasted in a quick
oven and be a little rare rather than
overdone or the meat will be too
dry. A good filling is made of potatoes, mashed and beaten light and
seasoned well with salt and pepper,
butter, a little parsley or sage, and
two teaspoonfuls of onion juice. This
makes a delicious filling. I am sure
if you will try this way of roasting
ducks you will be much pleased.
