PREMIER McBRIDE ON
RECIPROCITY QUESTION
Hon. Richard McBride Points Out How the Agreement
Will Injure Industries in the Province of
British Columbia—Approves of
Taking Test Rate.
The   resolution   expressing   disapproval of the reciprocity agreement j
between Canada    and    the    United
States which was adopted in the leg-!
islature with  only    H. C.  Brewster:
voting against it, called for a speech |
from Premier McBride in which the
subject was dealt with    from    the
standpoint   particularly   of    British
Columbia.
Premier McBride spoke for upwards of an hour, condemning, in so
far as British Columbia is concerned
therein, tlie bargain concluded and
recommended by Hon. Messrs. Fielding and Paterson, and suggesting
that—while he would not commit
himself to the recommendation of
the referendum as a general principle
in politics—this was an occasion upon which a direct appeal for the
opinion of the people of Canada was
desirable, the matter so vitally affecting their practical well being.
And such a course appeared the
more In order since it. would seem
that a general Canadian election
wa snot by any means likely to be
brought on until 1912 at the ear-1
llest.
The First Minister also stated that j
in his opinion such a tariff bargain
should never have been entered into
without exhaustive enquiry having
first been made hy a special commission, tlie researches of tlie Fielding
commission of 1905 being of no possible service today in consequence of
tlie great changes that have taken
place in Canada, and more particularly in Western Canada, during the
intervening- years.
Premier's Speech
He predicted that the reciprocity
bargain if carried into effect, as he
had no doubt It would be, would seriously set back Canadian development by dislocating trade and diverting the natural traffic of the
Dominion south instead of (reciprocally)  east and west.
"I have undertaken to address a
few remarks on this subject, and I
wish to do so In an entirely non-
political  way,"  said     the    Premier.
"Lately the press of Canada, both
Liberal and Conservative, has given
great prominence to this question,
and while the press in support of the
Conservative party has been almost
as one voice in its disapproval of this
policy, I am enabled to say that the
Liberal press, too, as represented by
some of the most prominent Liberal
journals in Canada, does not hesitate
to express views strongly in opposition to those underlying this bargain made by representatives of the
l.aurier administration. When we
consider that both sides of parliament for years past have strongly
endorsed the policy of protection,
this is not to be at all wondered at.
The Liberals, who for fifteen years
have been in charge of the affairs,
of tlie government, have been as
strong in their views as lo the benefits of a protective policy as were
Conservatives before them, and one
might say-after a critical analysis
that the differences of the parties In
this respect are sentimental. Both
are now  protective;     neither Is for

ACCUSED OF MURDER
Suspected Criminal Identified by Chief
McCarvel on Arrival
Here.
Tom O'Brien Hns Been Take" South
to Stand Trial for Killing a Negro
Thomas O'Brien, charged with the
murder of a negro in Kennewie-k,
Wash., was taken south by Chief
Ellis, of that place, last night. The
prisoner waived extradition, thus
simplifying  the  process.
For quite a few weeks past,
O'Brien has been in the city, held
by the police awaiting the arrival of
Chief Ellis. O'Brien went under the
name of Cahill when he reached
here .but Chief McCarvill recognized
him as the man wanted In the Washington town. He had him arrested
upon another charge and finally
charged him with being the man
wanted on a charge of murder. Admitting that he was O'Brien, the authorities were communicated with
and Chief Ellis started for here.
By accident, Chief McCarvell and
the Washington officer met in Vancouver and came back together.
Chief McCarvell owing to sickness
In Vancouver decided to forego his
trip east and will remain In Prince
Rupert.

TO MEET OFFICER
Ensign Johnstone Has Gone to Vancouver  to  Confer with  Coin-
missioner Rees
Ensign Johnstone of the Salvation
Army went south last evening. He
has gone to meet Commissioner Rees
the officer In charge of the work of
the organization in Canada and
Newfoundland. Commissioner Rees
Is the successor of Commissioner
Coombs, who has been forced to
resign, owing to continued ill-
health.
It Is the first trip of the new officer to the west since assuming command. He will not likely come farther than Vancouver at the present
time but later In the year will come
out and probably pay a visit to
Prince Rupert.
APPRECIATES SERVICE
Skidegate     Pleased     That     Wireless
Communication Has Been Established with Outside
The Queen Chariotte News forwards a message to The Journal
which is self-explanatory. The message is dated from Skidegate yesterday. The despatch conveys the satisfaction felt at the Island point as
a result of the wireless communication being established. It rends as
follows:
The Journal,
Prince Rupert, B. C.
The residents of Graham Island
beg to acknowledge the good work
done by the Dominion Government
in establishing wireless communication with the outside world and beg
to offer our congratulations through
the new station at Dead Tree Point,
which is now in operation.

John   Hendry   Corrects   Wrong   Impression Regarding Attitude of
Lumbermen to  Reciprocity
From a telegram received by the
B. C. Lumber & Shingle Association,
It is apparent that Mr. John Hendry
of Vancouver was misquoted in the
east. An interviewer said that Mr.
Hendry had made the statement that
western lumbermen had withdrawn
their opposition to the proposed reciprocity treaty with the United
States, and that the B. C. shingle-
men were entirely satisfied with tlie
general terms of the bill relating to
their product.
The telegram shows that the interviewer misrepresented the facts.
It reads as follows:
"Misunderstanding; have not
withdrawn opposition for British
Columbia lumbermen. I have said
I would prefer our shingles free Into
the United States, or at least at the
same duty of 30 cents per 1,000 on
shingles entering Canada and a duty
imposed on rough lumber dressed
on one side entering Canada, when it
would not be so detrimental to the

OPENING HOSPITAL
Doors of Institution Will be Thrown
Open to the Public This
Evening.
Every   Citizen   Is   Asked   to   Attend
nnd Inspect the Building
The Prince Rupert General Hospital will be thrown open to the public tonight to be inspected throughout, preparatory to the taking in of
patients which is expected to be possible by Monday. _ The Board of Directors have asked the Ladies' Auxiliary to bear the main responsibility
in connection with the opening. The
members of that organization, which
has done so much practical work for
the hospital have arrangements
completed and will provide refreshments for those who attend. Tea,
coffee, cake, ate, will be furnished
in the dining room at a nominal
charge.
The idea of this formal opening
is to enable every one in the city
to visit the institution and see what
it looks like. The matron, Miss
McTavish, and her staff will have
some of the wards fitted up, including the John Houston ward and several of the private ones. These can
be inspected and the public given a
chance to acquaint themselves with
the  conditions as  they  exist.
The electric lights arc expected to
be turned on this evening which will
add materially to the success of tlie
reception. Tlie Ladies' Auxiliary
have gone to a lot of trouble to prepare for the event and ask the public to show their appreciation by
turning out in good numbers.
On Monday the hospital will be
opened to receive patients and from
that on. this long-felt want in the
city will be in a position to accept
those in need of medical attention.

(Special to The Journal)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—The Interstate Commerce Commission has
decided against the railroads in both
the "Eastern" and "Western" cases.
Carriers in both cases are required to cancel on or before March
1, their advanced tariffs and restore
their former rates, which are the
rates now in effect.
Silt  GEORGE'S  VIEWS
Well-Known Public Man in England
on tlie Question of Reciprocity Agreement
DISCUSSED SOCIALISM
Interesting Debate Held by Epwortll
League on  Wednesday
Evening
On Wednesday evening there was
a very interesting discussion of Socialism in the Methodist Church.
The subject was introduced as a
debate. The claims of socialism were
well presented hy George Shaw and
Mr. Le Blanc, while opposing that
system were W. Wood and Dr. Kergin.
The debate called forth splendid
speeches from the participants, the
decision being given by a committee
selected for the purpose, who decided in favor of socialism as a system of government.
Sir George Doughty, who is well
known to Prince Rupert in consequence of his interest in the fishery
industry of the place, speaking at
Grimsby, said that the Premier, Mr.
Asquith, knew the reciprocity treaty
was being formulated and actually
instructed Ambassador Bryce to acquiesce. In so doing the Premier
was little better than a traitor to
British trade interests.
CHANGE IN HEAD
Superintendent     Love     Will     Take
Telephone and Electric Lighting Systems
There lias ben a change made in
connection with the city electric
lighting staff. Ernest Love, who has
been superintendent of the telephone
system and has earned the reputation of being a very capable official,
has added to his duties that of superintendent of the electric lighting
system also. He will receive a salary of $200 a month in his new office as compared with $160 paid him
as  head  of  the telephone system.
Superintendent Burns, who has
been in charge and who applied for
a salary of $200 to take charge, has
been relieved of his position it being
felt, that in the dual capacity, Superintendent Love can save money
to the city.
Two foremen whose cases were
brought up by Dr. Clayton at a recent meeting of the council, have
been retired also by the committee.
The elctric lighting system put in
by the city, is giving very good satisfaction.
BEFORE THE HOUSE
William Manson the Sitting Member Gives  the Legislature Reasons Why This Part of the Province
Should Receive Generous Treatment
in Appropriations.
The claims of the Skeena to liberal appropriations from the provincial government was ably presented
by William Manson, the sitting
member, in a speech on the budget
debate. Mr. Manson showed his
mastery of the subject and his presentation of this district's importance will do much to keep Skeena in
the public eye.
.Mr. William .Manson in rising to
continue the debate upon the motion
that supply be granted, congratulated most heartily the minister of
finance upon his very excellent
budget and upon the able manner in
which it had been presented. It was
a subject of congratulation not only
to the honorable minister, but even
more to the house and to the country, that the province was at the
present time in such a satisfactory
condition, and also that the development of the various provincial industries was steadily progressing along
sound and good business lines. The[
member for Alberni had attempted
to criticse the finance minister because, he asserted, that minister had
taken credit to the government for
the current prosperity of tlie country. As a matter of fact the minister had gone but a very short way
in this direction, and it was not a
habit of tills government to attempt
to take to itself the; credit In this
way. Indeed no one could be more
ready than the government and its
leader to admit on all occasions that
the prosperity of ihe country was
due, more than anything else, to the
energy and enterprise of its citizens,
whom    the    government    aimed    to
actively and intelligently support
The trouble with the member for Alberni was that he was so exceedingly
jealous lest any credit should attach
to the provincial administration,
and was at all times desirous of attributing credit for any prosperity
tlie country might enjoy to his
friends at Ottawa. He would, indeed, have the house believe that
the government at Ottawa had been
solely instrumental in promoting
and producing tlie present prosperity
of the western province.
Yet, when one took into consideration conditions in British Columbia as they exist today, and contrast
them with the conditions of a few
years ago, it must be admitted that
the government had at least been
active in so administering the affairs of the country as to take full
advantage of great opportunities. It
was found that the revenue for 1910
and 1911 would reach over $8,000,-
000, while only fourteen years ago
that revenue was found to amount to
but $1,383,000, a showing which the
people of British Columbia might
well be proud of. In 1902-3, the
first year of this government's control of affairs, the revenue was only
about $2,000,000, a very significant
contrast being afforded in the estimated revenue for 1911-12 amounting to $8,192,101. At the same
time there was now in the banks a
total of $7,500,000, producing interest, of $200,000 annually.

RELIEVING SITUATION
IN CAPITAL CITY
Government at Victoria Will Take Steps to Allow Council to Carry on Business Until a New Election
Can be Held as Result of Decision
as to Illegal Proceedings.
(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, Feb. 24.—Victoria
city council has been declared Illegally and a new election will have to
follow. The grounds upon which
the action wns based was that the
voters' lists were compiled without
reference to the registry office in
order to ascertain the owners of tbe
property. Those holding agreements
to purchase were thus given a vote,
their names being taken from the
assessment rolls.
Mr. Justice Gregory has held the
election to be invalid and new lists
will have to be prepared for another
election.
The action was taken by B. J.
Perry, who was an unsuccessful
candidate for alderman  In the city.
Enabling Act
• In the Legislature yesterday,
Premier McBride stated tbe government would submit a bill todny,
which would provide in the first
place for the. validation of the acts
of the municipal council to this date.
In the second place It was intended
to authorize the present mayor and
council to carry on tlie general business of the city until the new election could be brought about, such
business being necessarily limited to
necessary routine, works under construction, or works already under
conlract and to be constructed.
Power would not be given for the
council in the interval to initiate
new works or to submit or pass any
money by-laws.
It was propsed also in tlie legislation to absolve the members of the
present council from any penalties to
which by a strict interpretation of
the law they might be adjudged to
have rendered themselves liable. It
would also be provided that the offices thus to be temporarily administered should at the earliest opportunity be declared vacant by the
Lieutenant Governor In council, the
Lieutenant Governor in council being empowered to fix the new election clay and also to appoint a commission whose duty would be to
compile) revise and confirm a list of
voters for tbe new election so to beheld.

AN IMPERIAL WORK
Prime Minister of Australia to Move
In Furor of Secretariat
The need for a secretariat as a
channel of communication between
the Oversea Dominions is strongly
advocated by the Prime Minister of
the Australian Commonwealth, Mr.
Fisher. He intends to take up the
subject at the meeting of the Ira-
pertal Conference In London.
His Idea of the work of the secretariat he makes clear in the following statement: "I think the
prime ministers of the Oversea Dominions should negotiate directly
through the secretariat with each
other, the British Prime Minster,
Asquith, controlling the work of the
organization."

SKEENA'S IMPORTANCE
BEFORE THE HOUSE
(Continued from Page One)
that no policy of this government
could he pointed to as having influenced the development of the present satisfactory conditions. Surely
the financial status of the country
might be pointed to as one fact in
contradiction to this argument. Tlie
bouse would recollect, too, that this
government had been responsible for
the inauguration of the present pol-
ie-v in connection with timber, and
In many other ways the government
had unquestionably displayed sagacity not only In the production of
large revenue to carry on necessary
public works, but also In the proteinic]! of our timber wealth, With
respecl to lands and tlie land ad-
mlnlstratlon policy, the member for
Alberni hail charged that tlie finance
minster was guilty of bad bookkeeping in taking into account the
receipts from land sales and timber
licenses as revenue, instead of counting them as a depletion of capital
account. In tin's connection there
appeared to be three good methods
presenting themselves for a government's administration of the public
lands. It might sell the land and
have the money in hand; it might
hold the lands as an asset; or it
might, as this government made a
practice of doing, sell the lands in
part and invest the proceeds in
roads, trails, bridges, etc. By these
the value of retained lands was
greatly enhanced, and the substantial expenditure in roads, trails and
bridges was to be considered in the
light of an excellent investment for
the country—a better investment
than storing up the money in banks.
By thus selling a reasonable proportion of the lands, the government
not. only obtained taxes thereupon,
but also secured the money to develop and make more valuable other
lands. If all lands were held unsold,
no taxes could be got from them and
settlement would advance with very
undesirable slowness. The government bad seen fit to follow the
course of disposing of a portion of
the public lands and reinvesting the
proceeds advantageously to the
country. The lands as soon as sold
produced their four per cent taxes
and the method in vogue, taken all
in all, seemed to his mind good
sound business.
. Public  Works
He also thoroughly approved the
policy of liberal appropriation for
public works; this policy commended itself to the country, which also
thoroughly agreed with the timber
policy, in the issuance of licenses,
the preservation of tlie timber, the
introduction of heavy Investments,
and the compelling of manufacture
of British Columbia timber within
the province. In the development of
the fruit industry, in the advertisement of British Columbia fruit, in
the assistance rendered by the government in agricultural matters generally, and in the practical campaign for the improvement of stock,
the government was in reality doing
very much toward producing the
prosperous conditions at present obtaining.
The member for Skeena next gave
attention to Mr. Brewster's argument in connection with provincial
voters' lists, and to his objection
that campaign canvassers for -the
Conservative party had been requested to take note of the personal
appearance of eitzens. He thought
the very conditions referred to were
complimentary to the Conservative
party, and that the criticisms of the
member for Alberni were both unfair and unwarranted. He thought
that the people might take pride in
the fact thai In British Columbia
there was as little crookedness In
elections as In any part of Ihe
world. Tho obtaining of the description of ilie prospective voter was,
Indeed, an excellent idea, as it af-
fiiieied facilities for tin' prevention
of corruption creeping in in ihe
form of Impersonation; the recording eif descriptions on canvassers'
cards was an idea thai might well
be adopted by both Liberals and
Conservatives. And when one took
into consideration the disclosed
practices of Liberals elsewhere, it
was an especially good plan as providing for the protection of the
country  against  impersonators.
The government had been charged
with wasting the land inheritance of
the people, and yet the number of
the reserves created by the present
government furnished abundant contradiction of the criticism offered in
this regard. If the actions of the
government were analysed it would
be seen that In land matters it had
acted very wisely indeed, setting
aside the major portion of the lands
for the use of bona-fide settlors and
disposing of the fractional remainder so that funds might be made
available for opening up  the coun-

try, and to provide taxes for carrying on the country's business. The
policy of holding lands might be all
very well materially, but if the
lands were sold, no taxes would
come in, and no people, and the
progress of the province would he at
a standstill. As a result of land
sales during the past few years
many people had come into British
Columbia, a large amount of money
had been invested, opportunities for
business had been created and revenues had been made available which
would never otherwise have been
obtained.
Land Reserved for the People
The principle of retaining the
land for the people was one, however, which all were in favor of, and
the government had gone as far it
could in this direction. In proof of
this one bad only to take a look at
the map of Northern British Colombia and see how effectually the reserve system had been applied there,
in all, an area of upwards of 20,-
000,000 acres had been reserved
chiefly since the coming into power
of the present government, and of
this no less an area than 2,270,680
acres had been taken up. The details of these reserves wtih the date
of the reserve, the acreage of each
and the acreage taken up In the order named were in abstract as follows:

free trade. So when one considers
it from this viewpoint, although 1
have the honor to lead the Conservative party in British Columbia, the
question may be broached in a non-
political way.
What Is Best for IJ. C.
"In the first place I should like
to say a word or two in reply to my
friend who represents the Liberal
party in this house. I followed his
very careful presentation as carefully as I could, and it seemed to me to
he an instance in which an affiliation with the Dominion government
at Ottawa has somewhat impaired
li is judg ent as to what is best for
the people of Canada and those of
British Columbia more particularly.
No doubt the incidents that have
happened to the party to which the
member for Alberni belongs within
the last two sessions have given him
prominence in his party and he felt
In duty bound to commend Instead
of deprecating. I must compliment
him on the argument he advanced
the other day. I think the Liberals
of British Columbia will feel, after
that speech that although the late
or rather present titular leader of
the party has no place on the floor
of this house, in the member for Alberni the Liberal party has a very
resourceful and a very apt spokesman. My friend, in the first place,
cannot have failed to note in the
press of the province the almost
unanimous voice that has gone out
in protest against the Fielding reciprocity bargain. I tako it he followed vjry closely the ottlude of the
interior as well as the coast press
179^ on this question; and In fairness to
all Interests he must have recognized
that there is a feeling of great, dissatisfaction throughout llio province
of British Columbia. Of rourse, he
undertook to 1 oil the house that
ihero was not much Importance to be
attached to a matter of that kind but
we have enjoyed so much experience
of the work performed for the province hy the various mercantile associations and boards of trade that we
must credit them as being bodies of
men very useful to the public at
large. At times, of course, one may
conclude that the pressure brought
to bear by them is unwarranted. At
the same time we must recognize
that these are active, live men of experience and substance who know
whereof they speak. The representations of these bodies and all the
press prominence given to the subject must have Impressed my friend
from Alberni with the fact that the
people of British Columbia are far
from agreeing with his friends In
Ottawa, and I am sure that if my
friend bad risen above party feeling
and stated his own convictions in
regard to this agreement, the Liberal party In the province might have
NOTICE.

NATURAL RESOURCES
Prof. Robertson Delivers Address Upon
the Advantage of Conservation.
Chairman of tlie Royal Commission
Recognizes  the  Opportunities
of the Country
That ail Canadians should and do
stand for the conservation of natural resources, for the application of
scientific methods by practical men,
and for the opening up of heltet
chances in life for Ihe young people
of the Dominion, were tlie declarations of Prof. .1. W. Robertson,
chairman of the Royal Commission
on Industrial Training and Technical Instruction in a recent speech.
Prof. Robertson's theme was Industrial Training and Technical Education, and in the course of his remarks he stated\that Canada enjoyed a great heritage In the quality
of life which she had acquired from
tlie living nations and races of Europe. The citzensnip of tlie country
was si ill being enriched by streams
of blood from Great Britain and
Nortli European countreis with a
happily increasing number from Old
France.
Cananians, the professor remarked, had Inherited more than
property and opportunities, for her
forefathers who had loved liberty,
had also diffused knowledge and administered justice pure and unde-
filed.
Referring to the more recent increases in the population of the
country by immigration, the speaker
pointed out that Western Canada
had not alone benefitted thereby,
for, of the 300,000 estimated number of new arrivals in the country
last year fully one-third of that
number had settled down east of the
Great Lakes. The sources of immigration might be apportioned in the
rate of one-third each, for Great
Britain, the United States and Continental Europe.
And in the latter class the professor said, there were people from
Galicia, Bulgaria and the Scandinavian countries, people from Italy
and Greece, people from France,
Germany and Russia, who were with
us and were not only with us, but
had become of us and who in their
coming had affected the quality of
our national life.
These people were ours, Professor
Robertson declared, for better or
worse. They had come to Canada
because Canada had been heralded
to them as a land of liberty, of opportunities for their children, and
of respected law. Therefore, it became our duty to see that our Canadian standard were not lowered or
debased by their coming.
Prof, Robertson also traced briefly the history of the Conservation
Commission's work, and said that
since its creation, the commission
had visited altogether about ninety
cities and towns, holding some 150
sessions at which upwards of 1,300
men and women, the first and foremost in their different lines, gave
evidence.
Prof. Robertson expressed the
firm belief that all Canadians were
In favor of conservation, and urged
a development of young Canada's
opportunities by means of suitable
general education and Industrial
training which would be accessible
to the largest, possible number.

Till-: NEW  HOSPITAL
This evening Prince Rupert's new
hospital will he- formally opened by
a reception. The institution is a
public one. Public money will be
required to cary il on anil ilie- citizens should take advantage of the
opportunity afforded to inspect the
premises and see what has been
done to provide for this necessary
feature of every city.
The uadies' Auxiliary will in large
measure have charge of the arrangements. Nobody in the city has shown
better abilliy to handle public business than these ladies. A visit to
the hospital and an inspection of the
well stocked linen closets ready for
the emergencies which must arise,
will convince any one that the committees of the auxiliary have not
been idle. The economy shown in
the handling of the work by tlie
ladies is a very strong recommendation in their favor.
The hospital on Fifth street will
fill a long-felt want. It will be
comfortable and convenient and
while the accommodation will assuredly have to be added to very
soon, the hospital as it is is a credit
to the city. With the opening of
the instiution the expenses will increase. Prince Rupert citizens are
generous and can be depended upon
io do their best for such a public
necessity.
RESTRAINING   EVIL
The Optimist shows a very strong
disposition to misrepresent certain
situations as they exist here. When
it states that the present authorities
in Prince Rupert have inaugurated
a policy of affording protection to
those keepers of bawdy houses who
possess votes the paper Is, we believe, conveying a false impression
to the reading public. Such a condition cannot be said to exist  hero.
The Pacific coast has a long line
of experience in dealing with the
social evil. Nearly every system
known to tiie human, family in the
handling or that evil has been tried
in various cities from San Francisco
to Dawson. The public has profited
by the lessons anil in most of the
cities along the coast a system of
toleration is observed ley the police.
It is wrong to describe it as police
protection. A hotter term, we think,
is toleration.
The aim of tlie local ' authorities
seems to be to take away the most
objectionable features of a restricted
area and yet allow that there shall
be a well-defined/line beyond which
houses will not he tolerated. In doing as they are-, Ihe police authorities are undoubtedly meeting the
policy which would be approved of
by the bulk of the population, having in view tlie practical side and
the experience of cities in Hie past.
|       Imperial Conference      %
•:••:••:<•:<•;••:••:••><••:-•'.••!••;•••••."•'••"'••••"•••-"-"
As ihe month of May draws near
there is :e disposition amongst the
colonies to concentrate attention
upon ihe- quadrennial Imperial Conference.   This gathering of national
chief magistrates lias I n up to now
officially styled "Colonial," but
there is a disposition u> use. the-
wider and imiii- comprehensive title
of "Imperial." it Is understood, in-
eleei, thai the- nexl bluebook whloh
records the composition and doings
of tlie conference will use the truer
ami   larger  designation.
The oversea states which intend to
iake> pari In the meeting have—with
the exception of the Union of South
Africa—already formulated the programmes which they propose to submit to the conference. The Cape
parliament is at present in recess.
It meets on February 1, and probably one of its first acts will be to
draw up its programme, while, at
the same time, the officials who are
to accompany Mr. Botha to this
conference will probably be selected
It is stated at the Colonial Office
that nothing as to the agenda of the
conference or the details of the
meeting can at present be made
known. Nothing can be ascertained
even as to the quarters in which the
oversea premiers and their suites are
to be boused, the only fact given on
authority   being   that    -the   premiers
will certainly be the guests of the
government, as in 1907." Probably
more accommodation will be required than at the previous gathering, for, although the number of
prime minsters present will be less
by two, (he subordinate ministers in
attendance upon those principals
who take part in the proceedings
will be more numerous than formerly.
This year's conference, there is
reason to believe, will go very much
on the lines of that of 1907, save
that, naturally the agenda will con-
lain varied and different points.
The premiers will begin their deliberations nearly a month earlier than
four years ago, the date fixed upon
provisionally being Monday, May
22. It is not certain that the conference will formally open on the
elay named, for the reason thai some
of the oversea states have not yet
deflntely assented to the proposed
arrangements; but there is no doubt
that the date is approximately correct. The personnel will differ materially from that of the last conference. The prime minister of the
United Kingdom will, as before, preside at the opening meeting, and
this in all likelihood will take place
at the foreign office. In 1907 the
then Home Prime Minister, Sir H.
Camphell-Bannerman, was attended
by the Earl of Elgin, Mr. (now
Lord) Morley, Mr. Haldane, Lord
Tweedmouth, Mr. John Burns and
Mr. Lloyd-George, and there were
also present Mr. Winston Churchill,
Sir F. Hopwood, Sir J. L. Mackay,
the assistant Under-Secretary for the
colonies, the secretaries to the secretary of state for the colonies and to
the oversea representatives.
The most important change in the
personnel of the conference this
year will be that subsequent upon
the formation of the South African
Union, there will now be only one
South African Prime Minister at the
round table in place of the three
who formerly represented Cape Colony, Natal and the Transvaal. Other
changes due to political rearrangements have occurred during the four
years' interim. , Thus the position
formerly held by Mr. Alfred Deakin
(Australia) is now occupied by Mr.
Andrew Fisher, and Sir R. Bond is
succeeded by Sir Edward Morris
I Newfoundland).
So far as ca,n be ascertained, the
subordinate oversea ministers and
officials who are likely to attend
the premiers are as follows: Canada's official representatives besides
Sir \V. Laurler, will be tlie Hon.
W. S. Fielding, minister of finance;
the Hon. Sir Frederick Borden,
minister of militia and defence; and
the Hon. Louis Brodeur, minister of
marine and fisheries. Other members of the ministry may also attend.
In the case of the Australian
Commonwealth the Hon. Andrew
Fisher will be accompanied by the
Hon. Egerton Lee Batchelor, minister for external affairs; Mr. Alley
Hunt, secretary- for external affairs;,
Mr. Allen, secretary of the treasury;.
Commander Petherbrldge, secretary
to the department of defence; and
Mr. Shepherd, secretary to thd
prime  minster.
New Zealand's Prime Minister, Sir
Joseph George Ward, will be attended by Dr, Findlay, attorney general
and leader in Ihe upper house of the
Legislative Council.
Tho Prime Minister of the Union
of South Africa, Mr. Botha, will
msot probably be accompanied by
Mr. .1. \V. Sauer, minister of railways, and he is certain to have oth:
er officials with him, Including bis
private secretary. Sir E, Morris, Hie
Prime Minister of Newfoundland—
i hie smallest and the oldest of the
colonies—is not likely to bring any
member  with  him.
SPORTS
BONING IS OFF
The boxing contest for points
which was to have been put on here
between O'Brien and Nelson, has
been uncermoniolisly called off. The
local medical immigration officer,
Dr. Reddle, refused a landing to the
partiepants and lovers of the game
of defence will have to forego seeing
the bout. Considerable disappointment is felt at the turn which events
took but the medical officer seems
to be inexorable and the promoters
have to bend to the inevitable.
AFTER   WORLD'S  PRIZE
Jack Gillies, of Vancouver, all-
round athletic champion of Canada,
will go after the world's title again
this year, and although he will be
pitted against Martin Sheridan, former holder of the title and one of
the greatest athletes in America, he
expects to bring the championship
to Vancouver.
Gillies lias placed himself under
the care of Chet. Melntyre, physical
director of the Vancouver Athletic
Club, and the latter announced that
on March 1 the elongated athlete
will start on a course of training
that will continue right up until the
time he departs for New York to
compete for the championship. Gillies competed last year in Chicago,
finishing twenty-one points behind
F. C. Thomson of Los Angeles, who
scored a total of 6,991 points out of
a possible 10,000 in ten standard
events.
"Gillies will go through a systematic course," declared Melntyre
last night. "During the first six
weeks or until the warm weather
comes around he will confine himself entirely to road .work. He will
also undergo a system of physical
culture sueh as deep breathing,
which will strengthen his vital power, and will pay more attention to
his diet. In May, or perhaps earlier,
1 will start him at outdoor work, negotiating the hurdles for a few days,
then vaulting, while later he will
tackle the heavyweights. I have
every confidence in Gillies' ability to
win the world's title, and he will establish a new record when he does.
Any man who beats him will have to
do much  better than  7,000  points."
BALL TRAINING
Arthur Irwin, the Yankee scout,
says the work ball players do in the
spring wins the majority of early
season games, and that the hardest
job of a manager is to see that liis
players are not conditioned too rapidly.
"Youngsters generally cut loose
with speed early in the training season, and in less than a week are
nursing sore arms," said Irwin.
"Veterans do not throw with any
speed until they have been in cam])
about two weeks.
"Cy. Young does little pitching in
the early spring. He spends most of
the time in the outfield. Old Hoss
Rnlbourne and Theodore Breiten-
stein followed the same plan.
"In 1909 Frank Bowerman was
made manager of the Boston Nationals, and was the victim of his over
anxiety to get bis players in shape
early. He knew his club was weak,
but figured in getting the jump- on
the other teams by having well conditioned player's.
"Bowerman worked his young
pitcher hard from the start. The
team started the last season in fine
shape and led the league for three
weeks. Then the pitchers went to
pieces and the club dropped to last
place."
A man named Lufvovlch, charged
with nol covering ei blast sufficiently, was fined s 10 In the police courl
this morning, The blasl In question
was placed near the. St.- John hotel,
where rock work is In progress. As
a result of ils discharge damage was
done lo bnlldinsg In  the vicinity.

A heavy rock blast that scattered
debris over a wide area in the vicinity of First avenue and Second
street, was responsible for dropping
a large rock onto the roof of A. W.
Edge's building. The rock crashed
through to the floor, doing considerable damage and Mr. Edge and one
of his employees had a narrow escape.
CURVED  BAT
The latest thing in baseball is a
new bat, and in the spring practice ii
will be tried by some of the top-
notchers, The bat is curved and
somewhat flattened near the end.
The crook starts about eight inches
from the end and extends about six
inches farther, when it is rounded
off.
"Laughing Larry" Dolye, Ty Cobb
and Josh Devore are among some of
the wlllow-wielders that have ordered samples. The claimed advantage of the bat is that it makes possible for the batsman by a mere
manipulation of the wrist to place
the ball to right field or to left or to
centre. The bat really Is a variation
of the wicker affairs used in the jai
alia game of Cuba.
It Is said that some of the success
of the Cuban teams against the Athletics tliis season In the Antilles was
due largely to the use by the Cubans
of a bat to which the members of
the American team were accustomed
and which bat is in a large way similar to the new bat proposed.
Tlie new  bat, it is said,    is    no

This list of reserves, the majority
created during the past few years by
the present government was in itself
sufficient to emphasize the policy of
tlie government to conserve a reasonable proportion of the land asset
of the province, under which the settler also received every protection.
Criticism Wrongly Directed
The member for Alberni had said
that the prosperity of British Columbia was in no way attributable lo
the development policy of the government. The condition of the mining, timber and fruit industries
might be cited in refutation, as well-
as the activities of tlie government
in tbe dissemination of Information
with respect to the province and the
work of the agricultural department.
The Liberal member might with
greater propriety have criticised his
political friends at Ottawa tlwn the
provincial government. Mr. Manson
expressed his gratification at the
large public works estimate, and
commented that when the government showed such a disposition to
invest money in reproductive public
works it established confidence in
the country and Its future on the
part of individual investors. The
$400,000 appropriation for surveys-
was in his opinion one of the most
important that could be included in
the estimates as a factor in assisting
the development of the country. He
referred to the difficulties of settlement in British Columbia and of surveying here, owing to the generally
mountainous character of the province so greatly In contrast with the
level prairies  of  the other western
provinces. Last year $300,000 had
been appropriated for surveys, and
this year $100,000 more had been
added. Too much money could not
be spent in surveys. The $400,000
was just about half enough, but no
doubt much good could be done with
this appropriation. The contingent
fund he also regarded as altogether
too small; and as the member for
Alberni had associated it with an
election fund, he hoped that member
would not expect to obtain anything
therefrom.
Passing next to consideration of
.Mr. Brewster's remark on the taxation scheme, 'the member for Skeena said that no one was in favor of
the provincial revenue tax except as
a necessity, and the government had
manifested a perfect willingness to
get rid of it as soon as possible. He
endorsed the proposal for a commission to give special consideration to
all circumstances In connection with
tlie incidence of taxation, and when
this commission was appointed, it
would no doubt give special attent-
tiqn to the possibility of abrogating
this unpopular and admittedly unscientific lax. If it. were found possible to raise sufficient revenues for
Ihe country's requirements without
this tax, everyone would be glad to
see it disappear, The taxes on improvements was another matter referred to, interest in which centred
largely In the city. This also might
well be considered by Ihe commission when appointed, as well as the
adjustment of the allotment of taxes
between Ihe province and the city.
It was very easy to find fault with
taxation, but not so easy to make
the revenue meet the necessities of
expenditure without treading upon
someone's corns. The taxation commission might devise some method
of providing a reserve for moneys
received from the sale of lands, and
might map out a basis providing
proper rate sof taxation and to add
to the reserve a certain proportion
of the moneys received from land
sales. It Is safe to say that his
was a very commendable move,
and one which should be readily endorsed by the member for Alberni,
instead of meeting it with hostile
criticism.
Expansion in Skeeua
Touching upon the public works
appropriation for the year, Mr.
Manson said that while $225,000
had been voted for the Skena district, this was still altogether insuf
ficient, although the expenditure on
bridges, etc., would probably bring
it up to $300,000 in the grand total.
He refererd to the fact that everything in the Skeena district is as yet
in Ihe raw, and while development is
rapid there are very large areas to
be opened up along the Grand Trunk
Pacific, and it is a most expensive
country to build roads, trails, etc.,
in. The rapidity of settlement also
justified a much larger appropriation, and he hoped that next year
such would be provided for. As illustrating the rapidity of growth in
his district, Mr. Manson pointed out
that while three years ago Skeena
had only seven hundred voters, there
were now on the list more than
I wo thousand five hundred. The
district was also one of the largest
contributors to the revenue, and its
area was the largest of any district
in the province. In connection with
development, the member urged the
extreme necessity for experimental
farm work, and demonstration orchards in all parts of the district.
Many new areas were opening up
along the Skeena river, in the interior, and on the Queen Uiarlotte
Islands, which had not yet been
tested In any way, and he hoped that
experts would be sent in lo all parts
of the district to investigate its conditions and to assist the settlors as
much as possible in starting aright.
There were along the Skeena river
many tracts of land reputedly very
suitable for fruit growing, and lie
believed thorough te-sts should be
inado to determine just how these
might  best  be  developed.
As for the growth of Skeena dis-
trie-l. in a commercial way, Its contribution to tlie province's revenue
for the past year amounted to $1,-
324,342; Prince Rupert's contribution being $671,643; that of Hazelton division, $353,175; limber licenses adding $200,000 and coal licenses $100,000 a total amount almost equal to the entire revenue of
the province in 1906-7, when that
revenue   stood   at   $1,383,048.24.
It was difficult for the people of
the country to comprehend the richness or the magnitude of the Skeena
district; its large area and great variety of resources warranted » very
special attention from the government as a business proposition, and
he hoped that next session would see
even more generous provision made.
The present and future prospects
of the city of Stewart received pass
ing attention, this city having already applied for incorporation,
which Mr. Manson hoped might be
granted before the present session
closed. If not, he had no doubt it
would speedily be brought About
under the municipal clauses act. The
rapid growth of this important town
was but another Illustration of the
rapidity of development in the district, which It was his pride to represent.
Tn the Queen Charlottes
With respect to tbe future of the
Queen Charlotte Islands, the member took occasion to direct the attention of the minister of lands to the
fact that much difficulty had been
occasioned through the overlapping
of pre-emptions by local licensees,
this difficulty having presented itself more particularly on Graham Island. As a result of this many settlers seeking land for cultivation
had been turned away, a circumstance that should be made Impossible of occurence. While freely admitting that every facility musl he>
afforded for the disclosure and development of the coal wealth of the
country, a plan would have lo be
ile-viscd so that the pre-emptor might
also be protected; the coal licensees
should he- entitled to sufficient land
for the working of his property, but
Ihe surface land should he available
for the settler, lie' had he-en given
io understand that an order-ln-
council drawn on these IlneB had recently been passed by the government, and If legislative sanction and
endorsement were required, this
should be al once forthcoming. In
closing, Mr. Manson presented a
monster petition tor trails from Hazelton to the southerly portion of
ihe province, specially commending
the subject of the petition and expressing tlie hope that before the
present session ends steps might be
taken toward giving effect to the
prayer for the petitioners. Tlie mem-
lie-r for Skeena resumed his Beat
with congratulations to the country
upon possession of a government
that was redeeming the expectations
of its supporters by carrying on the
business of British Columbia in a
most satisfactory way, reflecting
credit upon all Identified with the
administration. He hoped the country would continue to go forward,
tiie government co-operating with
Ihe settler to enable him to meet
eemdltlons and help in the upbuilding of a Greater British Columbia
upon sound business lines.

PREMIER McBRIDE ON
RECIPROCITY QUESTION
(Continued from  Page Two)
been strengthened instead of weakened."
Changed  Conditions
The Premier continued that It was
true that In the tariff of 1879 there
was but a standing  offer for reciprocity, but it must be admitted that
conditions   In   Canada   had   changed
greatly     in     thirty-two  years.     The
population of the Dominion of Canada in those days was In tlie neigh-
lation    e>f   eight    millions.      Manufactures     then     were      in      tlie
neighborhood      of      $309,700,000;
today    they    were    In    the    neighborhood    of    or    exceeded    $600,-
000,000.    lie ie- and  there were- statistics  which gave striking evidence
of tin- differenl conditions In trade,
for  example,   having  mounted   from
$60,089,000  In   1879,  to  $249,247,-
000 in 1910, as we became comparatively  independenl   of  the    United
States and found "t her markets. The
member   for  Alberni   was   very   emphatic   in  stating  that     at     Ottawa
when  this agreement was concluded
there  was  scarcely  any   division  of
opinion  and   no  criticism, from  the
Conservative side of the house.   He
(the   Premier)   had     been     looking
over Mr.  Borden's speech and if his
friend   would  consult     Hansard   he
would  find that in  very pronounced
words the Conservative leader    had
joined issue with tlie government on
this question, saying that "the negotiations are in short a sequel to the
surrender the government made last
year."     His  honorable   friend,  who
came   from  a   farming  constituency,
had said that, one of the benefits to
be  derived  from  this treaty  would
be cheaper farm machinery, but the
decrease granted  was  not  of much
moment.     It  was  so  small   that  It
would be of little or no consequence.
While this provision had been made
at the same time with regard to the
free  importation  of  farm    animals,
produce   and   fruit.      Mr.   Brewster
had said that if there was anything
onerous in this bargain, it would be
competent  for   Ottawa   at  any   time
to throw off the burden;  but    Mr.
Fielding   had   said   that   "we   must
accept all or none of the bargain;"
so the house must take it for granted  that the course the member for
Alberni had outlined was impossible
and could not be carried out.
Mr. Brewster: Does he mean by
that that regardless of anything that
may occur? The Dominion of Canada would have no power to rescind
it.
The Premier: Canada would have
to rescind the whole of the bargain,
but from the report, I read of my
friend's speech he led me to believe
that only a part might be reconsidered.
Mr. Brewster: Not at all.
The Premier said he was glad to
hear it, although that was the impression be had gathered from Mr.
Brewster's speech. He was glad,
however, to hear that the member
retracted so much and as the budget
debate was still on he would still
have a chance to retrace his position
to the good of his party.
No Need foi- Agreement
There was no need for this change
in tlie tariff. Canada was never
more prosperous than at present,
and it could not be argued that because of hardships in commercial
life, this treaty was necessary. So
one could start with the premise
that there was no desire in Canada
for ruch a trealy. From what source
then did it come? It came from
Washington, the stronger party to
this bargain, not from the weaker,
clearly showing that the authorities to the south of the line felt
that It would be a move in their own
interests. He ventured to say that
had the stronger movement conic
from the Dominion of Canada It
would have met with a different reception in the United States. All
knew that In the past the Americans
had had a larger voice in these matters than We had, nnd no treaty
would leave: been made unless the
poeiplo to th" south could get advantage oul eif it. Canada had built up
a trade of enormous proportions under protection, In 1879 her total
trade amounted to $153,455,692,
while in 1910 it had grown to $093,-
211,221, nn Increase of nearly five
hundred per cent, which spoke marvels for the development of Canada.
Within tlie past year or two the
trade of British Columbia had increased In like proportion. In 1909
the tolal trade in exports and imports was $43,189,080, and in 1910,
$62,978,430, certainly a most gratifying result, and one that reflected
as much credit eeii British Columbia
;is it did on the whole of the Dominion. In lOOli tlie value of agricultural products in British Columbia
was $11,835,253, and in the same
year  there  were imported     agricul
tural products to the value of $13,-
646,904. This showed very clearly
the great necessity for more agricultural development in the province, a
policy to which this government was
strongly committed. While, in 1910,
the people of the province produced
a little over $11,000,000 of agricultural produce, they had brought
from the outside $14,000,000 worth,
but there was hardly much encour-
agement for the government of British Columbia to persevere in its efforts to develop agriculture and
home maintenance strength when
they found those efforts destroyed
by a trade bargain, many of the provisions of which be was sure had
tieei been gievn the consideration to
which they were decently entitled.
Britain as Customer
Down In I li I ie Greal Britain was
easily the best customer of Canada.
She took from Canada home products val 1 at $139,482,000, of fifty
per i-i-nt of the hemic products exported. In the same year the United
States took home products valued at
$104,199,000 or only 37.3 per cent
of the^ home products exported. Tlie
house could see from these statistics
that from a business point of view,
Great Britain was by far tlie best
customer we bad.
This led him to another and very
serious consideration with respect to
Ihe result of this bargain. Was it
not a fair argument to say that the
direct effect on our trade would be
its dislocation and hereafter instead
of business coming west and going
east, it would be a matter of business transactions between north and
south? He did not think there could
be any question that this dislocation
would make for great loss of trade
and traffic in the country. Canada
had given very generous assistance
toward building the C. P. R., and
since then had entered into another
bargain with the O. T. P. to build up
the trade east and west, and substantial assistance had also been
given to the Canadian Northern and
the Canadian Northern Pacific for
tlie same laudable purpose. It
seemed to him that the dislocation
of trade which must be expected
would have a very serious effect on
the efficiency of these roads as great
arterial highways, wliere the industry and trade of the country, had an
opportunity to grow stronger and
greater. While some of these things
concerning which he expressed
alarm might not come to fruition,
at the same time the persons responsible had not given due consideration to what effect their bargain
might have on Canadian transcontinental trade.
A Grave Possibility
"When we have lived under these
conditions for a few years," said Ihe
Premier, "the American people may
come to the opinion that the bargain
should be cancelled, and in what
position will Canada then find herself? She may have been compelled,
perhaps, in the meantime, to find
new markets, and to direct a great
deal of transportation lo the south
of :lie line, and she will find herself
face to face with a situation that
will cause general disruption in the
business of the nation from tlie Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. We
know bow powerful the congress of
America is, and how swift to act if
it is felt at any time that the commercial interests of the country are
being prejudicially affected, and if it
did occur to them that commercial
conditions would warrant the recall
of this bargain, it would be a very
serious thing for the whole Dominion. I am quite satisfied that hereto the agreement has not been given
that consideration that the interests
of the country demand."
Coming hack for a moment, tlie
Premier pointed out that the United
Slates sends us $223,000,000 out of
our $376,000,000 of imports and the
hope is expressed by President Taft
that tills agreement will give them
even greater control of our markets.
The house takes it for granted that
beroro President Taft would make
an official utterance of this kind, lie
would give tlie matter most careful
supervision. Tin. Premier also
quoted from a prominent Liberal
paper in Ottawa, the Ottawa Free
Press, which said that unless the
Dominion Government Is prepared
immediately to increase tlie British
prefernce, Ihe situation is a grave
one, and in its opinion a reduction
of British prefernce should precede, and not follow, an agreement
with I lie United States.
Fruit  Growing  Industry
The Premier next directed his attention  to the effect of the    agreement on the fruit growing Industry
of British Columbia.    He said there'
could be no doubt  that a great ileal |
of the  attention   British     Columbia!
had  attracted  abroad  had  been    in
consequence   of   the   wonderful   de-j
velopment of fruit growing    in    this,
province.    He recalled how the late
Captain Tatlow had spoken of British Columbia as "the orchard of the
Empire," when speaking of the rec
ord the province had first made in
competition In fruit growing with
other sections of the Empire. The
value of the British Columbia fruit
crop in 1910 was $2,500,000, and
yet the people were told it was a
mere bagatelle compared with what
it would be in another three or four
years, when thousands and thousands of acres recently planted
would come into bearing. If they
took the fruit growers at their word,
and they must do so and agreed that
[ their work would be greatly ham-
' pered by this agreement, how much
greater would be the mischief
i wrought againts them, when their
business approached , the condition
Just outlined? It was well known
that persons in control of fruit
lands In British Columbia might go
abroad and secure ample funds for
their development, so strong was
their faith in fruit growing, but how
shaken Ihis faith would be when the
protection which had helped to
bring tlie industry to its present
state was taken away. This agreement would bring the provincial
fruit growers into competition with
.Washington, Oregon and California,
all older communities, where there
were easier conditions for development, where labor wns more plentiful and transportation cheaper. In
this province we had not yet come
lo full manhood in fruit growing.
We were, indeed, in our earliest infancy in this respect.
The province was not provincial in
its attitude on this question. They
had the sympathy of fruit growers
of Eastern Canada, as represented
by the convention of Niagara district,
growers, which met at St. Catharines on January 2S, and passed a
strong resolution against the adoption of the agreement.
The Premier continued that in
looking over the files the other day
to see whether Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and Hon. Mr. Fisher had anything
to say on their visit to this province
in 1894 on agricultural matters, he
found that at Saanich, Mr. Fisher
had said that as the farmers composed 70 per cent of the consuming
community, it was necessary that
they should be in a prosperous state
before any other section couM feel
prosperity, and anything that would
hurt the farmer would react on other sections. He wondered if he
read that to Mr. Fisher today
whether that gentleman would recognize his own words, because he
could not help but admit how materially the farmers of Canada would
be affected by the closing of the
trade agreement.
How It Affects Lumber
The Premier then turned his attention to the lumber trade. He
found that already lumber men in
the interior had spoken, but he
found that some representative lumbermen on the coast had been unable to see eye to eye with the men
from the interior. If one considered
for a moment the enormous increase
in value that had come to th,e coast
lumbermen within the past few
years in connection with 'their holdings, it would be hard to understand
how any trade agreement could be
entered into that would make them
still wealthier. While he bad nothing to say in connection with those
large values they had accumulated
within the past few years, figures
would show that the largest holdings
of timber on the continent were in
British Columbia, so there was reason why the values should have advanced, though those in the interior
might not have increased as much
as those on tbe coast. But in spite
of this approval lent by some coast
lumbermen, be was quite satisfied
that the whole sentiment of business
in this country was against the bargain. The Mountain lumbermen met
al. Nelson on January 30, and passed
a resolution strongly condemning
reciprocity, not only as far as lumber was concerned, but with regard
to all other commodities, especially
fruit and  farm produce.
His friend from Alberni bad referred to the benefit tlie fishing in-
elustry would receive from this
agreement. Well, he knew that some
of the resources in the United
Slates had become depleted and
their fisheries resources would not
meet the demand, so that they bad
some interest in coming to secure a
supply in Canadian waters; but the
Premier held that if there was any
further demand for the further development of our fisheries, as Canadians we should be entitled to some
substantial advantage from It, and
should not give way because our
friends to tlie south say that their
fisheries are becoming depleted, and
they must come Into Canadian waters. Some said that while lumber
and fruit might suffer, there could
lie no question of the material advantage that British Columbia would
gain from this treaty; but If there
was any advantage they might depend that ninety-nine per cent would

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL'
PREMIER McBRIDE ON
RECIPROCITY QUESTION
(Continued From Page Six)
go to the United States and one per
cent come to British Columbia and
Canada.
Should Have Been  Commission
The Premier stated very emphatically that any proposal to interfere
with the trade relations of the Dominion should come about as the
result of an nqulry by a competent
tariff commission. He instanced an
inquiry that had been instituted by
the Conservative government at Ottawa in 1893. Again, in 1896, the
Liberal government bad an Inquiry
into the tariff and again, in 1905,
under the Liberal administration.
Mr. Fielding had stated to the
House of Coinnfons that there would
be no extensive tariff changes that
session, as ti was the Intention of
the government to have an inquiry
into existing conditions by a tariff
commission. In pursuance of this
policy the government had constituted a tariff commission consisting
of Hon. W. S. Fielding, Sir Richard
Cartwright, Hon. W. Patterson and
Hon. L. P. Brodeur. This commission held meetings throughout Canada, including many places in British Columbia. Of course, the work
of that commission In 1905 would
be of little or no practical value in
connection with the tariff agree-
\ ment in 1911. The rapid changes In
Canada during the intervening time
would render it absolutely valueless.
If the question were to be seriously
broached by the Canadian people it
was essential that a tariff commission should have first Investigated
the case before the conclusion of any
bargain with Washington.
"As the question is one that affects every indlvdual in the Dominion," said the Premier, "is it not a
case where the referendum might
be used, and perhaps used with some
advantage all round? I am not inclined altogether to adopt the attitude of Mr. Balfour, the Unionist
leader in Great Britain, who in dealing with trade conditions in a
speech at the Albert Hall, proposed
that tariff conditions should be
dealt wtih in a referendum; but it
does seem to me that the question is
one that so vitally affects individual
Canadians that it might be possible
to find out just how the people of
Canada do feel on the subject, that
is, if we cannot have a general Federal election, and I suppose since
the Dominion census may be taken
presently, we cannot expect the Federal election until after that at any
rate."
The Premier continued, with a
smile, that the only news he had had
of a Federal election was from a
Liberal folder which had fallen into
his hands, where it spoke of tlie
fight of 1912, and asked "the boys
to get ready to rally round their
leaders, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Mr.
Templeman and others, when that
time should come." If he was to
take that seriously, and he supposed
he must, there was to he no opportunity by which the people could be
consulted on this matter, and therefore he repeated that it might be
well worth while for the authorities
at Ottawa to consult the people
through the medium of referendum.
He did not know when Mr. Fielding
or Mr. Paterson were here last, but
if they came tomorrow they would
find an entirely new aspect to what
they found two years ago.
Ileliitions Willi  Motherland
The Premier continued that there
was an expression of opinion to be
met on all sides in so far as Imperial relations might be affected by
the present tariff bargain. Some
critics had gone the length of saying that It would mean a breach in
the present Imperial relations that
would widen gradually until it
reached serious proportions.
"I would never go so far," said
the Premier. "I cannot believe that
while we are called upon, under
these arrangements to make many
sacrlfces, that his will In any degree
affect the loyalty of British subjects
in Canada, or the strong desire of
Canadian people to take all constitutional means to make for efficient
arrangements of Imperial federation. At the same time we cannot
but conclude that the fact of our entering'into closer commercial relations with the United States will
not help out this Imperial problem,
a matter which occupies great prominence with the politicians in the
Home Land and of Imperial possessions. This bargain will not serve
to help or strengthen them, but we
have always the satisfaction of
knowing that despite a condition of
this sort, with the unbounded loyalty we Canadians possess for Britain and British institutions, for flag
and king, we can still persevere in
our efforts to weld more closely together the Mother Country and the
Colonies,   to   the  end   that   perhaps
within a few years we shall see some
advancement made in Imperial federation that will put the British Empire on that high plane she has easily the right to demand. I will close
by saying that there is no necessity
for this change, that the present proposals are ill-timed, and that it is a
matter that ought to be, if there is
any method of bringing it about, deferred for maturer consideration on
the part of those responsible for It"

FORT GEORGE TOWNSITE
FORT GEORGE—After negotiations extending over two years, the
Grand Trunk Pacific has at last been
successful in securing the Indian
reserve at Nortli Fort George for
lownslte purposes. Difficulty was
experienced in getting the Indians to
abandon their reserve, as they held
out for terms which tlie railway
company regarded as excessive, but
which, it is understood, have been
acceded to. The Indians, in addition
to the payment of a money consideration for every member. of tlie
tribe, will be placed on a new 750
acre reserve on the Fraser river, fifteen miles east of Fort George.
They will be transferred there during the coming spring. The deal between the railway company and the
Indians has been approved by the Indian department at Ottawa, and it
is said the provincial government
has consented to .the arrangement.
The Grand Trunk Pacific will undertake the work of subdividing the
townsite this summer. It is situated
on the south bank of the Nechaco
river, near its confluence with the
Fraser. The railway company also
owns an addition in the same vicnity
and the two parcels will be embraced
in one townsite.
| INVESTED IN CANADA f

**************************
The London Statist has compiled
some very interesting statistics on
the amount of capital invested in
Canada and the world in general.
The Australasian Colonies have received rather more capital, amounting to $1,900,000,000. Canada has
had $1,862,705,000 from the Mother
Country.
The Statist says in this connection: A few years ago the amount
of capital supplied to the Australian
Colonies was very much greater
than   that  invested  in  Canada,  but
the rapidity with which Canada is
developing, and the relatively slow
progress of the Australian Colonies
have materia'ly changed the situation.
The Canadian people have been
able to get all the capital they require for railway construction by
means of companies and by private
enterprise, but although the methods of obtaining the capital have
differed, the railways both of Canada and of Apstralasia have been almost entirely constructed by means
of the capital supplied byethe Mother Country,
The amount of capital received by
Canada and Newfoundland from
Bng'and is shown as follows in
pounds sterling:
Government £  74,621,000
Municipal      17,327,000

ARCTIC FREE OF ICE
Unusual Conditions Exist Along the
Northern Const of
Alaska
News received from Wainwrlght,
near Point Barrow, Alaska, contains
the most unusual information that
has been received from the far north
for some time. Up to the latter part
of November, when the information
was sent, the Arctic Ocean as far as
could be seen in all directions, was
absolutely free of Ice, excepting a
narrow fringe along the beach. It is
said that October and November
were intensely cold, which makes
the complete absence of ice floes all
the more strange.
As far back as the traditions of
the Esquimaux run this condition
has never existed before, and as early as the middle of August it Is usual
for the ice packs to come crowding
down upon the American continent
At Wainwrlght, about ninety miles
from Point Barrow, the ice has never   before   disappeared   entirely   for

Japanese sealing vessels are not
bound by the regulations which govern other sealers and the industry
provides for a fleet of nearly fifty
Jap.anese sealers, of which 35 vessels went to Bering Sea last year, a
fleet seven times the number of the
vessels sent from Victoria.
The Japanese government has
found strong pressure brought to
bear upon it by the sealing interests
in Japan and has been unwilling to
join with Canada, the United States
and Russia in the treaty concerning
which, according to a despatch from
Ottawa, Canada and the United
States have agreed. Pressure is being brought to bear by both the
United States and Great Britain
upon the Tokyo government to endeavor to secure the consent to
this treaty, but not until this is secured will the treaty be put into
effect. The purpose of the treaty
would be destroyed unless Japan entered into it.
The treaty arranged between Canada and the United States provides
that Canada is to be given an interest of 25 per cent in the profits
from the seal herds of the Priby-
loffs, and Canada is to provide-compensation for tlie sealers whose industry is destroyed.
HIGH   HONORS
PRINCE III PERT RETURNING
The steamer Prince George will
make another trip here, after which
she will be laid off to undergo her
overhauling preparatory to the
heavy summer's trade which is expected. The Prince Rupert, which
has been undergoing her annual
overhauling, will take the run for
a few weeks alone, after which tlie
G. T. P. will provide the twice a
week service for the summer, both
steamers being put into commission,
HAS GONE  SOUTH
Tlie steamer Henriette, with the
North Bend in tow, has gone south
for freight for the railway company
and the Foley, Welch & Stewart
Company.
SEALING   RILES
In connection with the sealing
treaty between Canada and the
United States, providing for a suspension of pelagic sealing for an Indefinite term of years, which'has
been signed, the consent of Japan
to enter into a similar treaty is being sought. The difficulty in providing for bringing the treaty into
effect lies in obtaining the inclusion
of Japan in the arrangement. Owing
to the fact that Japan is not a party
to the Paris agreement of 1894 the
Recognition from the highest
scientific' quarters has rewarded Mr.
Napier Denison, F. R. M. S., of Victoria, as a result of the laborious research work he has undertaken in
seismology. The findings of a
study, extendin gover eleven years,
were recntly forwarded to Sir
George Darwin, the eminent Br'tish
scientist, and a reply has been re-
i-eived from him congratulating Mr,
Denison, and urging him to continue
the work, which Sir George believes
may lead to useful discoveries. The
famous professor of experimental
BClence in Cambridge University
takes an especial interest in the pendulums installed at the Western
Fuel Company's mines at Nanaimo.
A long series of observations, he
says, secured from these are sure to
furnish  important results.
Sir George Darwin has forwarded
lo Mr. Denison mathematical formulae to enable him to separate the
seasonal from the longer period
movements, which recently have become so very remarkable. He also
urges the local scientist to obtain
records of pendulum movements occasioned by climatic changes—records which Mr, Denison already has
—but strangely enough he makes
no mention of those more important
changes due to barometric pressure.
Tlie object of obtaining both climatic and barometric records, as far as
they affect the pendulum, is in order
to separate them from the pendulum
movements caused alone by earth
unrest, for then only is it possible
to draw conclusions based on statis-
tie-al seismic data.
Tlie results of his finding, forwarded by .Mr. Denison to Sir George
Darwin, were shown by the latter to
Sir J. .1. Thompson of Cambridge
aud also to Professor Love of Oxford, both of whom recognize the
value of tbe research work which is
being carried on in tills part of the
world.
In congratulating Mr. Denison on
his "splendid persistence" Sir George
draws attention to the advantages
evidently possesed by Victoria, B, C,
as a scientific base for seismic observations. This, coming from such
an authority, is a further argument
in favor of the Dominion government establishing an observatory
somewhere in the vicinity of Victoria, and so advancing, as far as possible, not only the study of selsmol-
agy, but the study of terrestlal physics in all their phases.
HORRORS OF PLAGUE
Situation   in   the  East is Appalling-
Dead are Left Lying in
the Streets.
Revolting   Scenes  Witnessed   in  the
Cities Where Thousands
Are Dying Off
Passengers on the steamer Mont-
eagle, on arival in Vancouver, related stories repeated by eye-witnesses, telling of the horrors of the
plague in the east. In Puchatien,
the Chinese section of Harbin, seven
dead bodies lay on the ground surrounded by a gaping crowd of thirty
or forty Chinese. A few steps farther on they passed four dead bodies
in the open drains on either side of
the road. A Chinese vendor of nuts
expired before their eyes. Farther
on ,a dead Chinese was ruthlessly
thrown out of a shop and left on
the public road. A Chinese policeman, asked why he did not take any
measures to remove the body, said
it was not his business.
On arriving at the Bank of Sun-
gari, the party found themselves
face to face with another 'revolting
scene. Three dead bodies lay on the
shore, two entirely naked and the
other only half clothed. Two dogs
were gnawing at the head of one of
the corpses and a number of crows
were pecking at the others. On the
way to the steamer which they intended to board, the party encountered no fewer than thirty-six bodies
in hastily dug holes or in the open
drains.
Two Russian members of the
Harbin city council were sent to verify the report that dead bodies were
being thrown into the Sungari river.
They reported that on landing from
a boat near the Chinese customs
house they saw open graves with
limbs protruding from them.- There
were no indications that disinfecting
operations had been carried out on
tlie graves. The worst scenes were
on a small island opposite tlie
Drizinn mill, on which the visitors
were also landed. Almost the first
object'they encountered here was a
body which was being eaten by dogs,
only the head and upper portion of
the trunk remaining. Portions of
the limbs had evidently been eaten
during life. A number of roughly
dug graves had been torn open by
dogs and the plaguoinfected corpses
were being eaten by these animals or
by carrion crows. All over the island there were traces of human
flesh. The island is very low and in
the spring is liable to be submerged
by the rising river. In these circumstances unless the corpses are
removed, they will be carried down
the stream when the river rises. A
Chinese informed the visitors that a
number of bodies bad already been
carried away by the river.
Evidence was taken this morning
in tlie case against F. Nelson, of
taking money from his employers,
Lynch Bros. The whole of the evidence was not put -in, the case being further adjourned until tomorrow.
Last evening Murray, the lad convicted of stealing before Judge
Young, was taken south by L. Crip-
pen, special officer. Murray will
serve a two years' term in the penitentiary. The judge, who before,
had allowed the boy out on a suspended sentence, felt it was necessary lo inflict punishment this time.
He selected the penitentiary rather
than jail as a place of incarceration,
as they boy would be put at a trade.
He was too old for the reformatory.

Calgary's population is 55,300, according to the estimate of the directory publishers. This means an increase of over nine thousand in the
past. year. One fact in the growth of
Calgary is revealed in this year's
directory, and that is that the city
shows a greater proportion of
growth in English-speaking people
than almost any other city in the
west. The slight foreign-speaking
increase is shown in the north and
east of the city.
