TO STAND TRIAL FOR
ATTEMPTED MURDER
! SEWER BY DAY WORK
G. Vurgavich is Committed by Magistrate Carss on Serious Charge—Evidence Taken Showed That He
Fired Revolver at Kelly's Cut.
In the police court this morning
a start was made with the preliminary hearing of the men accused of
making trouble at the cut of Kelly
& Mclnnls last Thursday. The men
accused of committing a breach of
law are being defended by W. E.
Williams, of Williams & Manson.
S. S. Taylor, K. C, of Vancouver,
has been retained to defend the accused at the trial. Mr. Taylor is expected here tomorrow morning and
will take charge of the case.
In securing Mr. Taylor, the accused have secured a lawyer who has
a wide reputation in labor cases. He
has resided in British Columbia for
some time after practicing in Edmonton. In Nelson he represented
the miners' union in several important cases which were carried to the
supreme court.
The first case called this morning
was that of Jura Vugovich, who is
charged with having attempted to
commit murder by shooting at Special Constable Miller with intent to
kill. Some little time was lost this
morning owing to the -act that Mr.
Bratt, the stenographer, had not
been sworn, so that two of the witnesses had to be recalled.
SEWERAGE  SYSTEN
Report From Engineer Upon the Probable Cost of Hays Creek
Section.
Proposition   for  the  City  Is  Assuming Shape in Hands of
■ City Hall Staff
The city engineer last evening
brought in a report before the city
council with respect to..the sewerage
system for the city, or at least, a
part of It. This report put the cost
of sewering Hays Creek Section at
$10(1,632.59, witli 15 per cent added
to cover contingencies.
The report stated that the town-
site could be divided into about a
dozen natural drainage areas.
The sewerage might be arranged
to pass out with the ebb tide, so that
it would be carried out of the harbor with the tide. This would not
be necessary for some time to come.
He advocated a separate system
for the city for sewerage and for
surface water.
The Hays Creek sewer was intended for an area of 1,050 acres. A
flushing arrangement would be
made from Hays Creek. The cost
for the whole work was put at. $104,
632.59 with 15 per cent added for
contingencies.
Aid. Smith moved (hat this be referred to tlie streets committee for
report.
Aid. Morrissey thought it might
be better to have the Whole council
go Into it witli the city engineer, as
was done with the water reporl.
Aid. Smith agreed to alter his motion to cover this.
The  motion   then  carried.
STREET NUMBERING
Tlie Block System Will Probnbly Be
Adopted  in the City
It is quite probable that the block
system of numbering in the city will
be adopted as a result of representations made at the council meeting
last night. Aid. Clayton was added
to the special committee naving the
numbering in hand.
Tenders were received last evening for the supplying of numbers as
follows:
H. E. Gamp, $175 for the wnole
city; Munro & Robinson, 35 cents a
figure; W. A. Miner, 40 cents; L.
Bullock-Webster, 14% cents; Malrs,
30 cents, and N. McLeod, 29 cents.
These tenders were referred to the
committee.
E. Miller, special constable, under
examination by W. E. Fisher, identified the man charged with the
crime. He testified that he had been
on duty all day at Kelly's cut. accused standing behind a stump fired
at witness. Witness seized him. Mr.
Watson then knocked the accused
down. Constable Mansell came up
and he saw the latter take the gun
accused. He described the events of
the day, when about 400 men rushed
down on the cut. Under cross examination, witness said the stump
was a large onel. When he saw the
gun fired he jumjied ana grabbed
the man. Within a very few seconds
Mr. Watson struck the accused
down. Constable Mansell came and
took the gun away. There was a
wire across the street. Inside the
wire he was seized by a man with a
yellow sweater.
Welhan Watson identified the accused. He was the man who pointed and fired a gun at Constable Miller. Witness was afraid the man
going to fire a second time and he
(witness) then struck accused with
a stick. Cross examined, he said
when witness hit the man he (witness) was strtick with rocks. He
saw the man with the gun in his
hand at his side. He raised it and
shot. After the "battle" cooled down
witness said he took a good look at
accused who was lying on the
ground. He examined liim because
he did not know whether he was
dead.
Officer ..lansell testified that he
had not seen the shooting. He came
up and found the man lying on the
ground. He saw the end of a guii
sticking out and he took it away.
Cross examined, witness said the
gun was in the right hand hip
pocket.
D. D. Mclnnis described what took
ulace at the cut. The gun produced
was Identified by him as having
been taken from accused by Constable Mansell. lie emptied the chambers finding four shells in it and one
empty chamber. Witness saw the
man with the gun before that.
Cross examined, witness said that
he returned a shell and fired at the
ground in order to make a noise.
In the early stages he had heard the
shot fired. Pie looked and saw the
accused. He was knocked down before witness could get to him. Witness in reply to a question as to
Whether he was a British subject
said he ought \o be, he was born in
Nova Scotia. He had never seen tlie
accused until today since the fight.
Dominiok Coccolo was a special on
the day of the trouble. Cross examined, witness said he came here from
Spokane about two years ago. He
was not a British subject. He saw
the man struck down, but could not
identify the man who struck him.
Tills concluded tlie evidence
for the crown. .Mr. Williams said
lie had no evidence to offer in de-
Eense.
The accused said lie had nothing
to say  at   this time.
The magistrate thereupon committed Ihe accused  for trial.
The nexl case to be proceeded
with was that against -Milo Vttka-
vic-h. charged witli attempting to
commit murder by shooting al Constable Phlllipson.
The charge being interpreted to
him, tlie accused denied that he
tried to shoot anyone or to make
trouble.
The case is proceeding this afternoon.
A number of the men are to be
charged under section 502 of the
Criminal Code. This section reads
as follows:
"502. Assaulting or using violence or threats of violence to hinder persons from working at any

Council Reach Conclusion That Present
System is Too Expensive.
Information  As to the Cost of the
Sewer  Walls Is Given to
the Aldermen
Aid. Kerr has for some time been
anxious to find out tbe cost of the
sewer work on Fraser and Eighth
of knowing how much the retaining
walls were costing. At the meeting
last evening Aid. Kerr pttt his questions in definite shape. He asked
how much a yard it was costing to
build the retaining walls; how much
it was costing to build the sewer on
Fraser and Eighth streets; how
much it cost to have the culvert repaired that caved in on First avenue.
Aid. Hilditch said he had the information from the city engineer in
his hand then. The retaining wall
on First avenue had cost $3.96 a
yard. The rock, the engineer explained in this case, had to be carried a long way. The wall on McBride and Third street cost $2.08.
The wall on Fraser and Fifth streets
cost $1.75, while that on First avenue between Seventh and Eighth
streets cost $2.67.
In reply to the question as to the
sewer work on Fraser street and
Eighth street, the figures were also
in hand from the engineer. It was
shown by these that 657.34 cubic
yards of earth work cost $2,069.
The rock cost $11.39, which included
powder, fuse, etc. Backfilling had
cost $1.50 and 72% cents. The
sewer stood at $10,092, or about $12
or $13 a foot, according to Aid. Hilditch.
As to the cost of the culvert, Aid.
Hilditch said it cost only about $40.
Aid. Morrissey objected to the report from the engineer's depart
ment. The reports were misleading.
This did not include the excavations
Aid. Kerr said that he brought
this up because there was an open
end aud gravel was being washed
through and rendering It liable to
being stopped up.
Aid. Hilditch said' the end he felt
would be that the city vouid have to
go in and finish it. If the council
wished to move In that direction
now It could do so.
Later in the evening Aid. Kerr
moved, seconded by Aid. Hilditch
that the city take over the construction of the sewer on Fraser street
and Eighth street.
In support of the motion, Aid.
Hilditch said the cost as shown by
the return of the'engineer was about
$13 a lineal foot. The original estimate was for $4 a foot. it was
afterwards thought that the cost
might be $S a foot but it. was never
thought it would reach the sum now
shown.
Aid. Morrissey wanted to know
under what arrangement Mr. Me-
.Mordie was doing the work. The
city might get into difficulty by taking I li is over.
Aid, Kerr said, as lie understood
force account work it. could be
taken over at any time.
Aid. Hilditch said after consulting
the engineer that there was no contract. II was simply on force account, the contractor getting 10 per
cent on the cost of the work.
The mollon carried.

WANT WORK  TO GO ON
Council  Calls  Upon   the  Contractor!
to Proceed with the Work
in Hand
At the council meeting last evening the streets committee reported
upon several items referred to that
body at previous meetings.
In reply to the letter of Williams
& Manson, acting for Watson & Co.,
as to furnishing police protection,
the committee reported that it was
not aware that police protection had
been refused at any time. It was
recommended that the contractors
be informed that they proceed at
once with the work.
This recommendation carried and
the contractors will be informed of
the motion,
In reply to a request of Watson
& Co. as to subletting contracts the
committee recommended that the request should not be complied with
as the city had found a lot of trouble
as a result of subletting. It was
recommended that if the firm did
not find it possible to proceed it
might abandon the work.
This also carried.
A request for extension of time
mt>de by aWtson & Co. and McMor-
dle & Co., was recommended to be
refused and the contractors to be
called upon to forthwith complete
the work.
This was agreed to.

SIR HIBBERT TUPPE
ON RECIPROCITY PACT
Well Known Politician Gives His Views as They Affect
the Situation From the Canadian Point of View
He is Strongly Opposed to the
Proposition.
A ringing speech made by Sir
Charles llibbert Tupper at North
Vancouver cm tlie peril of reciprocity
is reported by the News-Advertiser
as follows:
"If the- lure of gold does its dastardly work. Canadians will prove
unworthy of their history and of
the glorious heritage which as members of the British Empire they
share—an empire that is not only
mighty power, but renowned for
honor, justice and all that is best In
human affairs. I have an abiding
faith in Hie goodness of heart of my
countrymen. I believe that we are
ready to sink and swim under the
old flag that has sheltered us in the
past and under the King of the
greatest empire the world has ever
known."
These ringing words were uttered
by Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper
K. C, M. G., at Larson's Pavilion
North Vancouver, last night, in the
course of a clarion appeal to Canadians to be true to their destiny and
discard tlie reciprocity treaty, which
he described as a plot to entice this
country into the clutches of the
United States. The address was delivered under the auspices of the
Nortli Vancouver Conservative Asso-
eiation.
The speech, which was lofty In
tone throughout, rising to a rousing
note of passionate patriotism at the
climax and close, was punctuated
frequently wit happlause and the
whole gathering rose at its termination to mark their agreement with
the sentiments of the orator.
Sir Charles demonstrated how the
statesmen of the United States had
for tbe last hundred years endeavored by one means and another to
drive Canada into the Union. They
had never made any secret of their
purposes, and the speakers on the
opposite sides of the Senate and
the Congress had but differed as to
the means to be adopted to achieve
their common  aims.
The object of the present treaty
had been made plain by the speeches
of President Taft, Secretary Knox
and Senator Beveridge and other
prominent men.
A striking fact, Sir Charles
thought, was to be detected in the
fact that in Canada all annexationists were in favor of it, and all imperialists were unalterably opposed
to it.
"Their country lay at the parting
of tlie ways," the words of President
Taft.
Mayor McNeish proposed a vote of
thanks to the speaker which was
seconded by ex-Mayor May, the latter said he thought there was no
question that a matter of such supreme national importance should be
submitted to the vote of the people.
Sir Charles said he did not approach the problem from a trade
point of view, and so did not require
to enter inlo the intricate questions
of lumber, fruit and other business
considerations. This might seem
strange in an atmosphere where
most people were there to got rich
quick. He had an abiding faith that
there was a spirit In the hearts of
the people that was not swayed by
mere huckstering. If they lacked
this feeling the British Hag would
not have been now flying over Vancouver.
Tln> Cardinal Point
The one cardinal point was not
whal was good for a year or two,
but. what was best for British consolidation on the American continent.
The national policy was adopted
in 1879. IA voice: "Were you here
at  thai  time'.'")
Sir Charles: "No, not in Vancouver, but through tlie policy that
then prevailed I am able to be hero
today."     (Prolonged  cheers.)
He recalled the fight that Sir John
Macdonald had made against tho
idea that Canada's destiny was wrapt
up with tlie United States, and pointed out that great changes had taken
place In both Canada and the great.
republic since the time when it was
generally admitted that if the United
States had placed raw materials on
the free list Canada should meet her
half way.
It was significant that all annexationists are In favor of the recopro-
clly treaty, though he did not accuse
the Liberal party of    any    predilec
tions of this kind. It was also interesting to observe that all Imperialists were opposed to it.
The important point wns to discover what the object of ihe arrangement from the United States
point of view. He would call as witnesses some or the leading men in
that country. A little later on he
would draw attention to what had
been the object of the Americans for
years
When they had been in perilous
positions and also now in tbe hour
of their unprecedented prosperity.
Canadian sin-cess had been achieved
in spite of the rivalry of the greatest,
agricultural country of the world.
They had tried to cripple Canada in
the past, and had introduced the old
fisheries question, which because of
the protection of the Britisii flag had
treaty which had never been answered.
But what of the matter of nation
building? That was what they had
been at. They bad been forced Into
It by the United States but had succeeded wondrously.
However proud they might be,
however proud of their stock, could
they hope to lead eighty millions
with eight millions? They would
become a part of the band wagon of
the various States. Great Britain
had become great not because of
geography, Great Britain aud the
Empire were marvels they were because of the splendid statesmanship,
the downright commonsense of the
Britisii character (cheers.) The far-
flung provinces with jarring Interests had been cemented together in
spit? of the temptation to share in
the marvelous prosperity to the
south. Britain had steadily stood
by the liiHe Northwest provinces in
spite of the fact that by doing -so
she risked an expensive and awful
war. They were told that the former
time of reciprocity was a period of
great prosperity. But the American
ieajed the most advantage, and the
conditions were peculiar and could
not be repeated. Nova Scotia at that
time built wooden ships for all the
world, and there was no part of the
United States to compete with them.
What was the cause of the abro-
SIR CHARLES H  IBBERT TUPPER
been amicably settled at The Hague.
At this stage an interrupter, who
bad continnually offended, was
ejected.
He had no doubt that Presideut
Taft was a man of the highest character and true as steel to the interests of the great nation of which he
was the head. A very pregnant
phrase, after years of effort, tlie
passing of solemn legislation to consolidate the interests of the American people Mr. Taft said lie wished
to conserve the forests now by securing the unused wood of the Dominion. The Inhabitants Of the scattered collection of provinces (o Hie
north of the line had been drawers
of water and hewers of wood for
their neighbors to the south, but the
time had come lo Inform the eighty
millions of the south of a change.
What Americans Thought
Sumner, a great American, had
foreseen the greatness of Canada
would achieve if it was true to its
national Interests. Secretary Knox
had made no secret of the tact that
their aim was to "grind the crops
of Canada for the benefit of the
United States." President Taft. had
said recently that the plan was to
give the Americans the control of the
wheat trade. Senator Beveridge had
declared that the idea was to transport the crops via American ports.
Mr. J. J. Hill, the railway magnate,
had observed that the plan would
prevent any inter-imperial scheme
which would be so injurious to
mAerican interests.
In a Times business article It was
pointed out that the Americans required Canadian wheat to make the
flour suitable for the British market. The "Northwest Miller" declared that banks and all business
auxiliary to the flour trade would
benefit.
He recommended the reading of
Mr. Burrell's speech on the fruit
trade as affected by the reciprocity
gation of that reaty? No man had a
more friendly feeling for the United
States, but no one was more suspicious of the intentions of their politicians regarding Canada (cheers).
There had never been a European
war when the United States had not
tried to take advantage of Canada.
To Punish Canada
The abrogation of the treaty had
been accomplished to punish Canada
for sympathizing with the South.
The intention had been to bring the
Dominion to its knees.
Mr, Brown, a Liberal, in 1854,
had stated that Canada had a policy
of lis own little inferior lo reciprocity. But no statesmen at that time
had realized ill their wildest dreams
the magnificent success of the Canada of today.
But the speaker pointed out, even
In those dark limes, Canada bad no
alternative policy. Britisii markets
and tlie diversion of trade east and
west instead of north and south was
the alternative, and in thai direction
had lain their success.
Mr. Charlton, an able liberal,
speaking of the rejection of tlie
Brown-Fish treaty, had declared that
it changed the history of the North
American Continent, and made the
votary of Imperialism thank God for
It. Had the reciprocity treaty gone
through, Canada would be now practically a part of the United States.
That was the idea of a Liberal statesman.
During the regime of President
Cleveland a settlement of the fisheries treaty had been thrown out.
The congressional records bristled
with speeches that explained why.
Senator Morgan had said: "Canada
is at our mercy six months in the
year; If we pass a non-lntercourso
treaty she will be under the control
of Congress."
An opponent had said (Senator
Nelson): "You will do what the Imperialism of Sir John Macdonald
sighs for." Another American speak
er had said that Canada's weakness
lay in tlie lack of communication be
tween the East and West. This
proved that all the American statesmen, both Democrats and Republicans, at that cime had the driving of
Canada into tho Union at heart.
Rival  Trade Routes
The reciprocity question, claimed
the speaker, was closely wrapt up
with the rival trade routes via St.
Lawrence and the barge route of
Buffalo. The Conservative party had
never been beaten on the national
policy. Race and religion had torn
down the ranks. The national policy
had stood the test of the financial
panics better than any other nation
in tlie world. Americans came to put
their money in Canadian banks.
Even in 1900, Sir Wilfrid Laurier
had failed to givo them the promised
free trade, and they had gone on
their way rejoicing—Canada could
not wait. They had sunk millions
In canals, nnd got a government
owned by a railway instead of the
other more conventional arrange
ment. (Laughter.) But the Dominion had prospered and all this time
their food in the States was costing
them more.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier had said in
London in 1907 that his government
had done all that was possible to
push Canadian trade in the direction
of Great Britain. Mr. Asquith had
replied he appreciated this, but
thought the conditions were such
that the United States would have
the best of it.
Sir Wilfrid had replied that Canada had sought to drive the trade
east and west because the immense
advantage of maintaining trade in
the Britisii  Empire was realized.
Sir Charles considered this a drastic indictment of the present proposal.
They had spent one hundred million on the Grand Trunk Pacific with
this view, and now wanted to cut it
In the middle, a process generally
attended with unfortunate results
for the ends.
The exodus was now for the first
time from the south to Canada, a
stupendous influx of both men and
capital was coming this way.
They had never approached Great
Britain from the mendicant point of
view, the favors were rather on the
other side. They had been able by
virtue of their marvelous prosperity
to take a proper and dignified attitude with the motherland.
Under the Stars and Stripes
Throughout the length and
breadth of the United States they
wanted to have the whole unbounded
continent under the Stars and
Stripes. If these machinations were
allowed to succeed, Canada's lavish
expenditure on railways would have
been wasted. The people will revert to their old position of hewers
of wood and drawers of water for
their neighbors.
If the lure of gold did its dastardly work they would be unworthy of
the Empire of which they were a
part, which was not only great in
power, but stood Tor honor, justice
and truth. If this intldious pact
were consumated he would have one
thing only to be thankful for, it
would drive a nail in that which was
a curse to this country—machine
made politics. The task of consolidation had been enormous, and with
out ill will to the United States, Canada's course is fixed in the empire.
"We are ready to sink and swim
under the old flag and under the
King of the greatest Empire the
the world has ever known."
In response to a vote of thanks,
Sir Charles said that what had made
(he Invitation to speak irresistible
was the fact that he had been left
unfettered. It showed that It was
recognized that a man might differ
with his parly on some points and
yet   lie a  good  conservative.

I Portland Cement?
* *
******************<&*******
Cement was used long before the
dawn of authentic history, but Portland cement is a distinctively modern invention, says tbe Cement
World. The ancient cements were
invariably of the class we call "natural"—that is, made from natural
raw material taken from mother
earth, without alteration or admixture. Portland cement, on the other
hand, is always tlie result of a carefully determined and scientifically
proportioned  artificial  mixture.
The cement used by Iho ancient
Romans, for example, was made by
grinding volcanic- lava. This was
first obtained for the purpose from
the slopes of Vesuvius, near Poz-
zuoll, thus giving origin to Ihe name
"Possuolana" or "Puzzolan" cement,
of which small quantities are made
to tills day. In making their mortar
and concrete, the Romans mixed the
ground lava with a certain proportion of slaked lime, and for their aggregate used sand and gravel or
broken stone, just as we do today.
They mixed their concrete in batches
and, as shown by the impressions
plainly discernible in the remains
still standing in the Roman forum
and other parts of the Imperial City,
they erected wooden forms similar
to those in use now, into which the
concrete was poured and allowed to
set.
During the Middle Ages, hydraulic
cements fell into comparative disuse,
and it was not until the eighteenth
century that a demand for them was
revived. But up to the time of the
invention of Portland cement, early
In the' nineteenth century, the demand was met chiefly by importations of Puzzolan cement and Dutch
cement, or trass, from the continent,
both of which were made by the
simple grinding of a natural rock of
volcanic origin.
Portland cement was invented by
Joseph Aspdin, a bricklayer and
builder living In Leeds, the principal
manufacturing town of Yorkshire.
In his first experiments he used for
raw material the mud scraped from
the roads near his place.
As.the roads were clayey and had
been macadamized, the mud was
really an artificial mixture of limey
and clayey materials—the essential
basis of the modern process of manufacture. Mr. Aspdin, wc are told,
first produced his cement in 1811,
but it was nol until 1S24 that he
patented his invention. On October
21, 1824, under royal seal of King
George the Fourth, letters patent
were Issued to Joseph Aspdin for his
invention of "an improvement In the
modes of producing an artificial
stone."
Mr. Aspdin gave tlie name "Portland" to his cement, because of the
resemblance in appearance between
the artificial stone made from it
and the natural stone found in, the
famous Portland quarries on the
southern coast of England. These
well-known quarries, of which there
are over fifty in number, are situated in Dorsetshire, on the Isle of
Portland, a peninsula, jutting out
into the English Channel.
The Portland stone is a white or
creamy, hard, closely compacted
limestone of the oolitic variety, the
best quality being found in the top
bed and in the northeastern part of
the peninsula, the poorest in tlie
southwestern part. For centuries
this stone has been a favorite building stone in England for cathedrals,
churches      and     public      buildings.
Among the prominent structures
built of it might be mentioned St.
Paul's Cathedral, finished about
1700; Goldsmith's Hall; the west
towers of Westminster Abbey, and
the Eddystone Lighthouse, built by
the English engineer, John Smeaton,
in 1759.
SKY   SOLDIERS
Special Force of Flying Men for the
British Army
"With a view to meeting army requirements consequent on recent developments in aerial science, it lias
been decided to organize an Air Battalion, to which will be entrusted the
duty of creating a body of expert
airmen."
Tbe special British Army Order
containing tills notification mentions also that, the flying battalion is
lo be organized in such a way as to
facilitate tbe formation of units
ready to take the field with troops,
and capable of expansion by any reserve formation which may be
formed In the future.
In addition, the training and instruction of men in handling kites,
balloons, aeroplanes, and other
forms of air craft will devolve upon
this battalion.
The establishment is to have a
strength of 190 of all ranks. The
officers are to be selected from any
regular arm or branch of the service on the active list, but they must
be recommended by the commanding
officer and be certified as medically
fit for the work.
Other qualifications which will be
taken into consideration in tbe selection of the officers Include possession of an aviator's certificate,
previous experience of aeronautics,
rank not above that of captain, good
eyesight, good map-reader and field
sketcber, unmarried, nol, less than
two years' service, under thirty years
of age, good sailor, knowledge of
foreign languages, taste of mechanics, and light weight (under list.
7 lb.).
On joining the Air Battalion each
candidate will go through, a six
months' probationary course (including two months' kiting and ballooning), and If during this period
he shows no aptitude for the work,
lie will rejoin the unit. The warrant officers and men are to be se-
lected from the corps of Royal Engineers.
The new organization will supersede the existing balloon school on
April 1.
 o	
Senator Lafollcttc was talking
about two corporations that had
been attacking one another in tin-
press. "They both scored," he said.
"They made me think of two prisoners in Atlanta, one of whom had
been convicted of stealing a watch,
the other of stealing a cow. These
two prisoners hated each other and
as they passed one morning in the
exercise yard the cow stealer said
with a sn'eer: 'What time is it?'
'Milking time,' the watch stealer answered."
Every employee of the Bank of
England is required to sign his name
in a book on bis arrival in the morning, and if late to give the reason
therefor. Tlie chief cause of tardiness is fog, and the first person to
sign usually writes "fog," and those
following write "ditto." Tlie other
morning, however, the first man to
arrive wrote as his excuse "wife had
twins," and at least twenty others
mechanically signed ditto underneath.

FAVOR ORDER
It is gratifying to know the representatives of the various unions In
the city have shown a strong disposition to dejirecate the action taken
last Thursday, when a breach of the
peace was committed on the streets.
This is but what was to have been
expected. It is not the policy of
unions nowadays to resort to force.
Indiscreet actions such as those
taken only tend to hurt the cause of
unionism and are not countenanced
by the right-tliiking section of labor
TAXATION COMMISSION
The apointment by the Provincial
Government of a commission to consider the question of the incidence
of taxation is one which has long
been in the mind of the government
to have brought into effect. The
government of Premier McBride had
to face a peculiar condition when it
assumed power. It had to raise taxation to meet the needs of the province then practically on the verge of
bankruptcy with the banks closed
to it.
The people of the province accepted the situation and with confidence
in the men at the head of affairs,
consented to bear heavy burdens.
Premier McBride has not been for-,
getful of the way in which the citizens stood by him at the time and j
bore the increased taxes in order to
put the province in a proper light in
the financial world. British Columbia has gained an enviable position.
The taxes have, from time to time,
been reduced, but now it is proposed
to go straight to the underlying
principles and devise the most up-to-
date method of arriving at a proper
basis of  taxation.
The commission, which any one
who knows the personnel of it will
readily agree, is a good one and
should bring ripe judgment to bear
on what is indeed a vexed question.

ALTOS  IX   CARIBOO
ASHCROFT—The Cariboo road is
gradually breaking up and transportation north from Ashcroft to Quesnel and Fort George is now being
done, by wagon and automobile.
Some forty freighting outfits, which
are struggling northward are meeting with stretches ol' very muddy
roads. Automobiles are carrying pas-
seners to the Fifty-nine Mile House,
twelve  miles  beyond  Clinton.
The snow is practically oft' the
ground at Quesnel, and tne ice in the
Fraser river began to run out last
Saturday. Passengers and some
freight are being transported over
the river at this point by means of
cable and cage. The road from
Quesnel to Fort George via Black-
water, being new and soft, is' still
almost impassable'. The mail, however, is going Into Fort George over
thai  road once a week.
Though the time Is not auspicious
to go into the northern Interior,
many an- leaving Ashcroft on foot,
as well as by Stage and wagon. Two
transportation companies already
have thirteen automobiles in commission, and the steamer Cliilcotln is
being got ready for slimmer traffic.
Captain Ritchie is at work on tlie
wrecked Cbilc-o, endeavoring to
get il tree from ice and in condition
to bring down to Quesnel to undergo
repairs. A new company has been
formed to run the little steamer
Quesnel, and this company, it is rumored, will also take over the historic steamer Charlotte, now on the
ways at Quesnel. A new hull will
be necessary before the favorite craft
of the Upper Fraser can again
breast the current.
Extra supplies are being sent
north each week from Ashcroft to
accommodate the Incoming settlers
who are filling up tlie two hotels. If
It is found necessary, an emergency
tent hotel will be erected here to accommodate the people. If the reports are only half true, as to the
number of settlers coming, this will
he absolutely necessary.
Howard Du Bois, L. A. Bonner,
I. I. Felker and other managers of
large placer hydraulic works in
Cariboo have left for the north to
get their works in readiness for the
spring opening. They all anticipate
an excellent year for mining, as the
unusually heavy snowfall will insure
plenty of water for the hydraulic
works. Some twenty outfits will
make a "clean-up" this year, which
is expected to be one of the largest
in the history of the historic gold
mining country around Barkerville
and Stanley.
COAL RECORD
NANAIMO—"Coal is King" is no
literary phrase so far as Nanaimo is
concerned, for day by day the importance of the coal mining industry
of this city is being made more apparent, says the Nanalmo Herald. In
the Issue of March 23, the Herald
published a four-column article dealing with the outlook for the local
mines in which it was stated the
output of coal for the month of
March was expected to reach the total of 54,000 tons. Many expressed
the opinion that the figures were exaggerated, but as an actual fact they
were too conservative, for the output of the Nanaimo mines of the
Western Fuel Company for the
month of March, ending Friday, totalled 55,000 tons, the largest in the
history of the coal mining industry
in this district. Of this large total
No. 1 mine alone contributed 38,000
tons, which also was a record for
this mine, and considering this output was made during only one hoisting shift dally, whereas, for years
the mine has hoisted two shifts
daily, the record is all the.more remarkable.
When the wheels of No. 1 ceased
whirling Friday the mine had been
working continuously (Sundays excepted) sixty-one days, and during
this time not a single break of any
seriousness had occurred, showing
the remarkable condition of the mine
machinery and capable management
on the part of the officials. Fifty-
five thousand tons of coal In one
month is a condition of affairs of
which any mining centre in the
world might boast of without at all
considering it flattery, and when it
is remembered this high water mark
of production is not only to be maintained but increased, the outlook for
Nanaimo and district is exceedingly
bright, for as Manager Stockett informed the Herald only a week ago,
his company was opening two new
mines at an initial outlay of $800,-
000, which, when fully developed
would add fully 1,200 workmen additional to Nanaimo's already large
number of wealth producers, and
increase the population of Nanaimo
and suburbs probably as much as
5,000.

SCOUT LAW
Allele ess ou Ideals of True Manhood
Given to Large Gathering
of Boy Scouts
/ "Work hard and play fair" was
one of tlie maxims in an address to a
large gathering of boy scouts at the
Congregational school in Victoria.
The speaker was Mr. H. Sheridan-
Bickers. In the course of his address on tlie meaning and lessons of
the scout law, which every scout on
joining promises to obey, the speaker reminded his hearers that the
first object of scouting was to live
up to the scout's motto, "be prepared," so that whenever in life they
were up against difficulty or danger
when a crisis threatened their
country or their home, they would
he ready lo meet it bravely and fearlessly.
"To the man who Is always
ready," said the speaker, "Hie crisis
never comes," On becoming a scout
every  boy  promised   on   his  lienor:
1. 'In do liis duty to God and the
King.
2. To help others at all times.
3. To obey tbe scout law.
They could best do their duty to
God by performing faithfully their
duties to themselves and their neighbors. Just as God had created each
oneas an individual man and as a
member of a great community, so
their primary duties in life were to
make the best of themselves ana do
the best for their fellows. Let the
ideal of an all-round self-development and whole-hearted mutual aid
be the Ideal of their lives. Let tnem
do everything as well as they could
do it. Let them realize that it took
a "big" man to do lit 'e things well.
Under the scout law, there were
nine moral duties to be faithfully
performed throughout their lives.
These were, that in all things, (1)
a scout's honor is to he trusted; (2)
he must be loyal; (3) be must strive
to be useful and to help others;  I 4)

Cakes and  Confectionei-y of all
kinds
to be a brother to every other scout;
15) to be courteous and chivalrous;
(6) to be a friend to animals; (7)
to obey and learn to discipline himself; (S) to "keep on smiling," and
()9 to be thrifty. The speaker In
turin dealt with these nine points,
defining them as the nine essentials
of true manliness; honesty, loyalty,
usefulness, comradeship, chivalry,
humanity, self-control, courage and
thrifty. To every man, his honor
must always come first, for that to a
man is dearer than life. As Shakespeare wrote:
"My honor is my life: both grow in
me,
Take honor from me, and my life is
done."
Let them believe in themselves
and in each other, and their belief
would be justified.
Next to the ideal of honor—of being true, honest and self-controlled
in all things—let them live up to
the law of courage. Fear was more
painful to cowardice than was death
to true courage. Let them cultivate
cheerfulness, that they might face
trouble wtih a smile, and learn to
whistle when depression or despair
threatened. Let each scout make up
his mind never to be beaten; to get
up if knocked down in life's battles,
and to earn the proud title of the
"unconquerable Canadian."
The third of the scout's most precious possesions was the quality of
usefulness. To be able lo help others, a man must first be able to help
himself. To develop themselves and
to be useful to others—in that quality of sovereignty and service by the
highest happiness in human existence. There was no happiness pure
and more lasting than the joy of
self-reliance and the knowledge of
conscious usefulness. For those who
brought sunshine to the lives of
others could not keep happiness
from themselves.
The speaker wound up with a
glowing tribute to the-'value of the
boy scout movement in tlie making
of a virile and healthy manhood,

PROPOSED     CRICKET     CHANGES
Those interested in cricket will be
interested to hear that at the conclusion of the ordinary business of the
annual general meeting of the Mary-
lebone Cricket Club on May 3, the
meeting will be made special in accordance with rules 19 and 25 for
the following, amongst other put-
poses:
To vote on the following proposed
alterations to laws 13, 16 and 17,
dealing with  "no-balls."
Law 13 now reads as follows- —
"The ball shall be bowled In overs
of six balls, from each wicket alternately. When six balls have been
bowled and the ball Is finally ret-
tli'd iii the bowler's or wlcketkeep-
er's bands, the umpire shall e-all
'Over.' Neither a 'no-ball' nor a wide
ball' shall be reckoned as one of the
over."
Tlie proposal Is to add at the end,
"but they shall be scored against
tlie bowler."
Law 16 now reads as follows:
"The striker may hit a 'no-ball,' and
whatever runs result shall be added
to his score; but he shall not be out
from a 'no-ball' unless he be run out
or break laws 26, 27, 29, 30. All
runs from a 'no-ball' otherwise than
from the bat shall be scored 'no-
balls,' and if no runs be made one
run shall be added to that score.
From a 'wide bail' as many runs as
are run shall be added to the score
as 'wide balls,' and if no runs be
otherwise obtained no one run shall
be so added.
The proposal is to omit from "the
striker" to "add to that score," and
to substitute: "A 'no-ball' becomes
dead Immediately on its being called.
Two runs shall be added to the score
under the heading 'no-balls.' "

any part of the striker's person
(hand excepted), and any run be obtained, the umpire shall call 'leg-

The proposal Is: To omit the

PRINCE   GEORGE   COMING
The Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Prince Rupert has laid off for one
trip. Her place has been taken by
the Prince George.
PREPARING FOR SIRING
It is now certain that fully eight
hundred tons of freight will be here
within the next very few weeks for
transportation to the foot of the lake
before the ice breaks up, says the
Whitehorse Star of a recent date, referring to the preparations for
spring.
Captain Syd Barrington who already had 300 tons, received a wire
Tuesday evening from San Francisco asking him to handle another
hundred tons and telegraphed his
acceptance of it.
Captain Sproule, owner of the
steamer White Seal, arrived Tuesday
with a party of barge builders, nine
head of horses and 90 tons of
freight. He will use his horses in
freighting to the foot of the lake for
which place his ship carpenters left
yesterday. The crew of the White
Seal will arrive in a few days.
Captain Wallace Langley, who
owns the steamer Tana, now at the
foot of the lake, has not yet arrived
but will be along in a few days with
a crowd of barge builders and about
150 tons of freight.
The Merchants-Yukon Transportation Company, whose steamer Evelyn is also now at the foot of the
lake, has a crew of sixteen men
building barges, and Captain Raymond, of the Pauline, has a crew
busy getting ready for the opening
of navigation
Captain Barrington and John Ray
mond returned from the foot of the
lake Tuesday evening and report
that place as being very busy. In
another week 100 men will be engaged in building barges there.
ferent trades on the Atlantic coast.
Most of them are experienced halibut
fishermen who have worked for
years on the Great Banks. They declare that they are looking forward
eagerly to an opportunity to get in
the same field on the Pacific coast.
In most cases their families have
been fishermen for several generations back.
The codfishing schooners Jos.
Russ and Alice are now outfitting at
Anacortes and will probably sail
north within a few weeks. The vessels fish outside Unimak Pass when
they first go north, but enter the
Bering Sea later In the season. The
codflshers are the first vessels to
enter Bering Sea, .passing through
Unimak Pass long before Bering Sea
is considered navigable.
The schooner Vega, one of the
codfishing fleet, is now being
cleaned, repainted and recaulked.
Together with the Maid of Orleans
she will sail north in April after she
has outfitted at Seattle. It is thought
that on account, of the recent loss of
the Czarina, of the codfishing fleet,
that the schooner Harold Blekum,
which has been lying idle for some
time, will be used this season, but
no definite announcement has yet
been made.
The schooner Fanny Dutard is
now on her way from Anacortes to
Seattle and after reaching here she
will be overhauled and fitted out before sailing nortli  next month.,
SHIPBUILDING FIRM
Denny Brothers, the famous Dum-
barten shipbuilders, are joining the
Messrs. Bullen in the construction of
a drydock and shipbuilding plant at
Esquimau.
That they were doing so has been
known for some timei The Glasgow
Weekly Mail of March 18, just to
hand, contains the announcement
from the Scotch end.
The allied interests expects to employ between 4,000 and 5,000 men at
the great works which will be erected, where part of the Canadian navy
will be built.

TO STAND TRIAL FOR
ATTEMPTED MURDER
GLOUCESTER   FISHERMEN
Twenty-four tan-faced, big-boned
American fishermen brought to the
Pacific coast 'all the way from
Gloucester,' Mass., to man the Puget.
Sound codfishing fleet, have arrived
at Anacortes. It is said that this detachment Is the first of more than
two hundred who are to come to the
Sound during the coming season.
The twenty-four who have arrived
will go north on the codfishing
schooners Jos. Russ and Alice, which
are now outfitting at Anacortes.
Men engaged in the codfishing industry declare that in the past It has
been impossible to secure full crews
of fishermen to take nortli and that
in many cases they have been forced
to fill In with inexperienced men.'
Often the vessels have been delayed
In getting away in the spring because of the inability to secure a full
crew.
The men brought here from the
east are general all-round fishermen, having been engaged in the dif-

ance of any such combination or conspiracy uses any violence or threat
of violence to any persdn, with intent to hinder him from working or
being employed at such trade, business or manufacture."
On Monday morning the cases
were to have come up before the
magistrate for preliminary hearing.
W. E. Williams, representing the accused men, however, wanted an
adjournment as he had not had an
opportunity to consult the men sufficiently.
The request was granted, although
Mr. Fisher, representing the prosecution, urged that there were reasons why there should be as little
delay as possible.
The accused were called up in
threes and formally remanded.
Those charged were as follows: N.
.McDonald, Bosco Mikovich, P. Pos-
tolo, L. Collett, James Yanus, W.
Blakey, M. Petroff, D. Coma, M. K.

Counsel for tho men asked that
all those charged under section 502
of tho code should be allowed out
on bail. It was in the interests of
humanity, The ends of justice, he
felt, woudl be met just as well.
His Worship said that be wou.d
be very careful about granting bail.
He did not intend to allow any
against whom serious offences were
laid to go on bail.
Mr. Fisher said that he agreed
with the magistrate. There were
more serious charges against these
men than these laid.
The magistrate said he would not
grant bail in any general way. There
might be some particular cases.
Mr. Williams said he would apply
for Lublch, Macvidich, Illicit, who
was a property owner, N. Rocovich
and N. Stugar and some others, and
the magistrate agreed to sit in the
afternoon and dispose of these applications.
Sitting In the afternoon to consider the question of bail, It was found
that the chief had allowed R. Brandt

LABOR SITUATION
Industrial Workers Have Been Given Use
of Their Hall Again Under
Certain Conditions.
Accused  Men Are Anxious to Have
Their Preliminary Hearings
Brought on Quickly
With the return of good weather
the street work is improving. There
are a good number of men at work
in different parts of the city and the
contractors expect to have more
from time to time now.
The Industrial hall has been allowed to be opened again on assurances being given to the chief of
police that there would be nothing
disorderly, the members of the association being agreeable to allowing
police officers to attend meetings.
• Today W. H. Montgomery, of the
Longshoremen's Pnion, complained
of the improvised jnll, saying that
the men were not comfortable. He
made this complaint to the mayor,
who said that lie would himself investigate. His Worship went to tlie
jail and looked into conditions. lie
asked tbe men awaiting trial If they
bad any complaints. They admitted
they were as comfortable as it was
possible to make them, They expressed a desire to be out of the
Quarters and also asked that there
sliould be no longer delay than possible in bringln gthem to trial.
.Mayor Manson personally asked
Mr, Fisher to use every means to
bring the hearing on as expeditiously
as possible.
Incidentally it may be mentioned
that the delay so far has been at the
instance of the counsel for the men
who wanted time to consult with
them.
Since the outbreak on Thursday
there has been no demonstration of
force at any point where the work is
going on.

As a result ol' the investigations
being conducted by tbe engineers
representing the Granby company, it
seems to be practically settled that a
smelter shall be erected at Goose
Bay. Tlie Hidden Creek property,
which is held under option is, according to the best Information
available, proving all that was expected of it. Not, only is there nearly naif a million tons of ore in sight
and practically blocked out, but the
drills leave readied vast bodies in
addition to this so that an ample
supply for the proposed smelter to
be ercted Is assured.
With several weeks yet to run before the option expires it is reported
that independent experts will be

BRITISH COAL
Outlook for Product Is Not the Most
Promising at Present
Time
As the results of increasing competition on the part of American and
German explorers, the outlook for
the British coal industry is not ai
present  for  from   satisfactory.
Labor troubles in tlie United
Kingdom coal fields have also been
a powerful factor in favor of foreign
shippers, while the operation of the
coal mines (eight hours) act has not
improved the situation.
At one time tlte home market was
considered inviolate against imports
from abroad, but, of late, several
cargoes of Westphalan qualities have
been forwarded lo the Thames.
Indeed, although charters for carrying Gorman coal to Italian Egyptian and Soutli American ports were
at one time of rare occurrence, they
are now almost familiar. Two important contracts for Havre and
Savona were only a few days ago
wrested by Germany from merchants
in the north of England, and others
are expected to follow.
American firms, too, are now invading markets that were at one
time practically monopolized bf
Britisii shippers. As a matter of
fact, inquiries have been circulating
in the freight market for tonnage to
carry 200,000 of coal from Baltimore to Havre.
This quantity is, it is slated, to be
delivered over tlie next four months
to the order'of the French Stales
railways, the business being diverted
from South Wales in consequence of
the recent agitation there. About
three months ago the Navigazione
Genet-ale Italiana gave an order for
150,000 tons of American coal, and
the probability of a permanent trade
is being overlooked seeing that, as
the syndicate which    lo   developing
the rial lands in West Virginia and
Pennsylvania has acquired valuable
iron ore properties In Spain, it will
now be possible to run a regular line
of steamers from Baltimore to the
Mediterranean with good prospect of
return cargoes,
All these foreign enter) rises will.

This measure provides feu the payment eef an annual suhsiely lo an

state railroads and 100,000 tons for
the navy, the contract to last for ten
years from July  1,  1912.

"Oh," says Smith, "how you made

"No," said  Brown.
"That's a sign it's cracked," replied his friend.
Joe McGrath, one of the veteran
prospectors of tlie north has outfitted for the territory and with a
launch will push his way as far up
the Naas as he can go by boat. He
will then proceed on foot, making
careful inspection for mining propositions and also  for land.

INCREASED  PRICES
l.iiixl  Values  Have Advanced in  the
the West as Result of
Demand
Western Canada lands are certainly increasing in value, and it is
quite evident that there will soon be
no more $15 an acre land in the
west, Whether this is through the
reciprocity talk, railroad construction or the natural law of supply
and demand, reasonably priced land
as measured by former standards, is
certainly vanishing at a wonderful
rate.
It was learned today that the Hudson's Bay Company has put into effect a remarkable increase In the
prices of their lands, ranging from
$3 to $10 per acre additional. Lands
located on lines which three weeks
ago were generally quoted at $14
and $15 per acre, cannot now be
purchased from tlie company at less
than $2 0 and $25 'per acre. This
will no doubt be the signal for the
general increase on the part of all
companies in price of their lands in
the west.
Notwithstanding the increased
prices buying is extremely active and
sales are daily reported at from $20
to $30 per acre. There is every indication that in tlie matter of farm
land values the west has entered on
a new era and that 1911 will usher
in tne establishment of a considerably higher standard of prices.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
IN BRITISH HOUSE
Some Peculiar Facts  Concerning Mem
bers Past and
Present.
There  Have  Been   Very  Unexpected
Elections and  Many  Interesting Contests
Within recent years the Britisii
Parliament has had at least three
blind members. One of them was
Mr. Fawcett, who was postmater-
general in Mr. Gladstone's second
administration. Tlie second was
knighted for his services on the commission on the blind, deaf and dumb.
The House of Commons has had
many men of great stature, but the
tallest of them was Sir Frederick
Milner, of whom the following story
is told:
When he and Sir Frank Lockwood
once met at a public dinner, the baronet warned his hearers that Sir
Frank was going to caricature him.
"It is perfectly true," answered
Lockwood, himself a man of six
feet and two inches, "that I contemplated issuing a portrait of my
worthy friend, but owing to his great
length It should have to come 'In
parts, and I had my misgivings as to
getting subscribers."
It seems almost an impossibility
for a man to be elected to Parliament without having any knowledge
of the honor that was being done
him. But this seemingly impossible
thing has happened more than once.
Captain Suter, elected as M. P. while
fighting 6,000 miles away in South
Africa; Sir James Fergusson, while
lying at death's door from wounds
received in the Crimea; Sir E. F.
Evans, while absent in America, and
O'Donovan Rossa, while imprisoned
for treason, were elected to Parliament. John Daly was returned for
Limerick while In Portland Prison,
and Michael Davitt was elected at
Meath In 1S82, and then went back
to prison to complete and unexpired
sentence. In the same year Mr.
Powell, the Tory member from
Mnlmsbury, ascended In a balloon
and vanished completely from human ken. Douglas Pyne, member
for West Waterford, made an equally mysterious and dram?tic exit from
the world. He was seen on one of
the steamboats crossing from Dublin to Halyhead, but when the boat
arrived no trace ol his was visible
beyond a handbag and a few letters.
Perhaps the most singular and romantic pair of members of the house
in modern times was James O.
Kelly, member for Roscommon, the
stoy of whose adventures before he
became a legislator is more thrilling
than fiction. To give out a few examples: When Mr. Kelly was a
young man he was the correspondent
of a Cuban paper at the time when
that country was in the throes of
civil war. He was arrested as a spy,
sentenced to death and actually was
facing the rifles of the firing party
when the United States consul arrived on the scene and rescued him
a few seconds before the time for
the fatal command was to have been
given. He fought valiantly with the
French against the Prussians, saved
the life of the Empress of Brazil,
had many a hair-breadth escape
from death in Canada, Mexico and
Algiers, and was lost a whole year
in the Soudan.
J. F. X. O'Brien, the second of
this adventurous pair, was sentenced
to be hanged, drawn and quartered
for the part he took in a Finian rising, and it was only his gallantry
during a fire, when, at great risk
to his life, he rescued some women
and children, that caused the death
sentence to be commuted to one of
penal servitude for life, which, after
years of durance, was remitted.
LONDON'S  LOCK-STEP  FAD
Do you know the "lock-step"?
If not, says the Paris Matin, go
to London, and take a look over the
principal arteries of that immense
capital. In order to do the "lock-
step" you jump from one leg to the
other with a firm and rhythmic
movement, and you let one leg remain in the air an nstant, just like
a chicken in distress in a pool of
water. The famous "lock-step" was
launched by one of the big theatres
of the capital, and since then all the
Londoners, amused by it, have tried
their best, no matter where they are
to master the secret ot its cadence.
The success of the new fad has been
such that, according to the Matin,
"professors of 'lock-step' hire men
to go about the streets marking the
time of the movement and distributing prospectuses bearing tbe address
of the masters in the art of the
'lock-step.' "
STATE CONTROL
American    Telephone    &    Telegraph
Company Favors Regulations
but not  Publi.   Anui.-My
That state control and regulation
of public utilities has effectually
killed all sentiment for municipal
ownership in the United States is
the burden of the annual report of
the directors of the American Telephone & Telegraph Company, made
public in New York.
State control, the report says, is a
necessity, but it urges that "governmental' and state supervision should
stop at control and regulation and
should not be used to manage or
operate public utilities nor to dictate
what tbe management and operation
should be beyond requirements for
the greatest possible economy and
efficeney.
The report continues: "If there is
to be state control and regulation of
public utility corporations, there
should also be state protection to a
corporation which is striving to serve
the whole co imunity. Parts of such
a corporation's service must neces-
sarly be unprofitable, and it should
be protected from aggressive competition covering only that part of
its interests which are profitable.
"Government control should protect the investor as well as the public. Through a wise and judicious
state control all the advantages and
none of the disadvantages of state
ownership may be secured and
state ownership will be doomed.
The directors report recites the
fact that opposuion companies are
being merged with the Bell where
ever It could legally be done with the
pub'ic acquiescence. It declares that
the public is tired of dual telephone
exchanges, adding that as fast as
confidence in protection against the
real or imaginary cvels of monopoly
increases, opposition to the mergers
will decrease.
As to the financial condition of the
company, the report declares that in
1910 the gross revenues of the Bell
system were $165,000,000 which
paid dividends of $25,000,000. The
net revenue of the American Telegraph & Telephone Company for
last year Is given as $31,933,000,
which yielded dividends of $20, 676,
000.
Dr. Chadwiek, Bishop of Derby,
now in his seventy-first year, has
been married at St. Bartholomew's,
Dublin, to Miss Helen Jare Crozier.

RESERVE ON LANDS
Government  Takes  Steps  to  Preserve
the Public Domain for
Settlers.
Interior Districts Have Had All Unalienated Sections Taken
off Murket
A very important change in the
land policy of the British Columbia
government is crystallzed in an
order-in-council passed at a special
meeting of the executive, which has
been officially promulgated in a
special issue of tbe British Columbia
Gazette.
In substance the effect of the new
order, the most important in its relationship to the administration of
the crown lands of this province
since Hon. .Mr. Ross assumed the
charge of the department, is to increase the price of land classified as
second class from ?2.50 to $5.00 per
acre, and that of first-class land
from $5.00 to $10.00.
The new scale of prices will prevail from the beginning oi tlie provincial year, that is in respect of all
pending applications not already
passed at the old standard of prices
In addition to thus amending the
•schedule of prices for crown land,
the government is also doubling the
fee to purchasers of lands by the
crown the charge hereafter being 50
cents per acre in the place of 25
cents previously charged.
There will be no increase In tlie
acreage survey charge to the pre-
emptor, whose position in other respects well remains unaltered. That
is. pre-emptors will continue to acquire lands under the old conditions
and nt tlie old prices, and lo enjoy
the advantage of entering upon and
taking up lands within the various
reserves, closed as against  investors.
In addition to increasing the sale
prices of public- lands, the government at the council meeting decided
to pliie-o under reserve from alienation otherwise than by pre-emption
all tbe crown lands Included in the
Cariboo, Lillooet and Kamloops division of Yale district, the territory
thus withdrawn from iln- market extending from but a little above the
50th paralel of north latitude to the
provincial boundary ten degrees farther north or an area roughly comprising   from    one-quarter   to   one-
third of the total area of tlie province.
There are, of course, in this immense territory some fifty million
acres or more, some isolated areas
of lands already disposed of or
staked for purchase under pending
applications, which will not be affected by the declared reserve or by
the present revision of land policy
except in so far as the purchasers
will be required to pay for their
properties, if their applications are
allowed, at the new instead of the
old acreage scale.
There will .undoubtedly be some
dissatisfaction on the part of intended purchasers, and more especially
those having pending applications
before the minister, in consequence
of the advance in prices, but when
the augmentation in value—in consequence of the shutting out of all
other would-be purchasers by the declared reserve—of the lands that
they will be permitted to acquire, is
taken into consideration, it would
seem that they will find in their
comparatively monopolistic position
abundant compensation for the increase in price.
The action of the minister and the
goiernment Is clearly defensible on
the score of both public and business policy. British Columbia
properties throughout the length and
breadth of the province have materially increased in worth during the
past decade. Advancing railway con
structlon and road building make
them more valuable dally. As assets, or as marketable commodities,
(lie same conditions as to augmentation of values apply to the public
lands of British Columbia as to the
western lands in the hands of the
large holding companies, such as the
Hudson's Bay Company and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. All
these great companies have latterly
materially increased their prices—in
much larger proportion than prices
of provincial crown lands. To have
taken any other action than keep the
prown lands on a reasonable parity
of value with lands in the hands of
such great holding companies would
obviously have marked a laxity on
the part of the government in recognition of its responsibility as custodian of tlie people's heritage.
It is understood to be the intention of the minister of lands to proceed almost immediately with the
systematic surveying of the lands
contained In the various existing reserves these lands, as surveys are
completed in particular sections, reasonably in touch with present or
prospective transportation   facilities,
being from time to time placed on
the market as demand and conditions generally justify.
The department in this connection
is considering the advisability of
adopting the sale by auction system,
^Ssd it is quite possible that an experiment in this direction may be
tried before the present season has
come to a close.
