SEEKS DISMISSAL
Alderman Newton Wants the City Engineer Dismissed From
His Office.
Long  Report   Prepared   by   Hiin   As
Chairman   of  Investigation
Committee
Aid. Newton, at the council meeting last evening presented his report
with reference to the investigation
into the engineering department. It
was signed by himself as chairman
of the committee but no other signatures were affixed to the report. It
was evident from the discussion last
night that the committee is by no
means unanimous on the matter.
The report, as might have been from
Aid. Newton's stand with reference
to the city engineer, is a very strong
one and calls for the dismissal of
Colonel Davis. The presentation of
the report called Aid. Hilditch to bis
feet and he condemned the conclusions reached. A rather sharp exchange of views between tbe author
of the report and Aid. Hilditch followed with Aid. Morrissey brought
into the fray as defender of the policy of Aid. Newton. Occupying a position of safety, Aid. Douglas took a
little dip into the fight without committing himself to either side but
delivering a spent blow at Aid. Hilditch and contenting himself in announcing his policy as one of retrenchment.
When the report again comes up
for discussion a field day is expected.
The report of Aid. Newton is
naturally a very voluminous one and
is devoted largely to an attack upon
the city engineer's administration of
his department. It calls for a reorganization of the department with
the following offices, the proposed
appointee, the present ■salary, the
new salary and the total for the year
in the order named.
Engineer pro tern. Lucas; $150;
$250;   $3,000.
Inspector and estimator. Oakley,
$125;   $150;  $1,800.
Assistant inspector and checker,
Parker; new;  $100;  $1,200.
Local overseer of water and sewer
connections, Heward; $100; $125;
$1,500.
Overseer of grading and plank
contracts. Miller; $100; $125;
$1,500.
Overseer of retaining walls and
culverts, Newcombe; $100; $110;
$1,320.
Draughtsman, Simpson; $100;
$110;  $1,320.
Accountant and stenographer,
Bratt;  $100; $100; $1,200.
This is shown to represent $1,070
a month, or $12,840 a year. The
saving effected, the report says, is
$9,319.92 a year. Then, at length,
the report sets forth the reasons for
the changes and the decapitation of
the engineer. It is set forth that
the whole improvement policy was
begun on a wrong basis; by the
purchase by the city of steam shovels, a rock crusher and roller, thousands of dollars could have been
saved; the high price paid under the
McMordie contract is instanced as
due to the department; no provision
was made for retaining walls and
when an estimate was asked for, the
figures varied from $S,000 to $228,-
000; no provision was made for
storm  culverts.
Aid. Morrissey moved, seconded
by Aid. Newton that the report be
adopted.
Aid. Hllditch said that the report
attached blame to tbe city engineer's department for things tbe department was not to blame for. The
engineer's department was undermanned today. There had been
mistakes made. It was hard to say
how far the engineer was to blame
for not giving sufficient assistance.
The matter of retaining walls was
the worst mistake made. The engineer had to depend upon his assistants In large part.
The city engineer had planned all
the work for Section 1, at a cost of
2 per cent. Vancouver was costing
5 per cent for its engineering, and
Seattle, 5 per cent.
The report of Engineer Thomson
on the water supply was the best
recommendation for the local head.
Mr. Thomson's report in no point
called for an alteration in the plans
of Colonel Davis. Yet the city considered It got very cheap work done
when it got off with paying $2,000
to Mr. Thomson to look over the
plans of Colonel Davis.    If this were
so they were surely getting good
value from the city engineer who
went to all the work of preparing
these plans.
Aid. Morrissey regretted hat he
had to take the stand he did. He
pointed out that when the work of
street improvement for Section 1
was prepared there was no allowance for retaining walls. Then the
matter was referred to the engineer
sveral times before the final style
of wall was adopted. The ratepayers would be interested in retrenchment. By dispensing with one man's
services there would be a saving of
$9,000. There had been gross carelessness If not inefficiency.
Aid. Smith said he had just read
the report. It was too important a
matter to vote on off-hand. He
moved in amendment that It stand
over  until   Wednesday  evening.
Aid. Kirkpatrick seconded the
amendment.
Aid. Newton said he had been
advisd to get his eeport in at the
risk of carrying this over his head.
He was in no special hurry with this.
| After taking the pains to prepare
this as fully as he had done he was
satisfied  to have this stand over.
He, however, objected to Aid. Hilditch  treating this as a joke.
Aid. Hilditch said that when men
talked about things they did not understand he was bound to smile at
it. He could meet Aid. Morrissey
and Aid. Newton before any fair-
minded audience and show that
every point they raised with respect
to the engineering department was
ill-founded criticism. The department was being run cheaply.
Aid. Newton stated that Aid. Hilditch had always attacked the engineer. He might be ignorant but
there were others who were either
ignorant or double-faced. Aid. Hilditch could take his choice.
Aid. Hilditch defied Aid. Newton
to poin tout wherein he had ever
criticised the engineering department because it was too expensive.
There was not a more inexpensive
department in British Columbia.
Aid. Douglas said Aid. Hllditch
had shown his ignorance when he
failed to read his (Aid. Douglas')
writing.
The motion to delay the consideration of the report carried.
HOSPITAL  GRANT
Gity Council Votes the Snm of $5,000
to the Local Institution
on Conditions.
Indigent   Patients  Sent  by  the  City
Are to Be Treated Free of
Charge in Return
The city council has made a grant
of $5,000 to the hospital, dependent
upon the institution taking in city
patients free of charge. The vote is
thus made on similar conditions to
that of the province. The vote came
upon as a recommendation from the
finance committee.
Aid. Hilditch moved the adoption
of the report, which was seconded
by Aid. Douglas.
Aid. Newton said this had never
come properly before the finance
committee. He was in sympathy
with the hospital. He would like to
see the $5,000 granted but he was
somewhat dubious about granting
that sum Ibis year. He thought that
$1,000 might be taken off the vote
this year.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that last
year the application  was not made
to the council until late in the year.
The hospital was a public institution
and   should   be   kept  up     by   leulilie-
funds.     Nothing   would     he     taken
from the streets by this.    There was!
not a sidewalk built'out of current
account.    It was built under the lo-'
cal improvement plan. If he thought
it  would  carry  be would    move  to
gran  $8,000  to  the hospital.

MAY INCREASE RATE SERIES OF ACCIDENTS
WANDERERS  WIN
Electric Lighting to Private Users Nay
be Advanced to Cover Actual
Cost.
Aid.  Newton   Is Again  in a  Critical
Mood with Respect to
Installation
The subject of an increase in the
price of electric fluid to consumers
was introduced last evening at the
council meeting, when a resolution
was passed urging the light committee to give early consideration to
this with the object In view of making the revenues meet the expenditures. This came up on a report of
the superintendent as to the month
of May. It showed that there had
been a revenue of $995.60, and the
operating expenses were $8G6.58,
showing a surplus of $139.02. This
was without allowing for interest
and   sinking  fund.
His Worship said it appeared to
him that the committee might well
consider an increase in price for
electricity. The city was only able
to supply a part of the demand. It
was not quite fair that those who
were able to get light should not
pay a rate that would about meet
the cost of production.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the
light committee take steps as quickly as possible to go into this question to see if the rates could not be
adjusted so as to make the plant
self-supporting.
The motion carried.
On the matter of street,, lighting,
Aid. Morrissey wanted to know if
there could not be some arrangement made to have the street lighting off in the early part of the evening and thus allow more fluid to be
used for private use.
Aid. Smith pointed out that the
committee had made a recommenda-
ion along that line that had been
turned down. It was to provide a
separate current for the street lighting and Install arc lights. These
would be part of the permanent sys-

(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, June 20.—A sensational turn was given to the ease
against C. J. V. Spratt and W.
Houston, of the Victoria Machinery
Uepot, charged with being in possession of naval stores alleged to
have been stolen from Esquimau
Navy Yard, when, during the preliminary hearing in the police court
yesterday, Mr. Bullock, the chief
witness for the prosecution, was
placed under arrest on a charge of
extortion.
Mr, Bullock had but stepped off
the witness box when he was placed
under arrest on information sworn
out by Mr. Spratt charging "that
on 18th April he did unlawfully
threaten to accuse Charles J. V.
Spratt of having committed an offence punishable by law with seven
years' Imprisonment, to-wit: receiving a quantity of public stores, to-
wit: a quantity of paint and rubber,
tin- property of the Admiralty,
knowing the same to have been obtained by theft contrary to the
criminal code, with intent thereby
then and there to extort and gain
money from said Charles J. V.
Spratt."
In the subsequent, argument between W. J. Taylor, K. C, counsel
for defendants and J. A. Aikman,
counsel for prosecution, as to the
legality of the arrest at that- stage
of the proceedings, Mr. Taylor made
it clear that the charge of perjury
would also be laid against Mr. Bullock at the conclusion of the hearing.
Mr. Bullock was given bail,

On  S.  S.  "Prince Rupert,"
Prince Ruperl to Vancouver,
June  »,   1911.
His  Worship   Mayor  Manson,
Prince Rupert, B. C.
Dear Sir: —
While the recent agreement con-
e-Iuded wiih the City is not binding
until confirmed by the Legislature,
it is not to be understood that the
Railway Company Intends to postpone the commencement of work at
Prince  Rupert  until  that  time.
It is the intention of the Company
to commence work immediately after the ratification of the agreement
by the ratepayers. Preparations are
now being made and materials assembled to that end, and we expect
to make very considerable progress
during the present year.
Now that the situation at Prince
Rupert has been adjusted, you may
rely upon our Company putting
forth every effort to get the work
covered by the agreement under way
as speedily as possible, with a view
to securing its early completion. In
undertaking our work, we confidently count upon the efficient co-operation  of the City.
Yours truly,
CHAS.   M.   HAYS,
President.

R. J. Talpey lias returned to the
city from Hazelton where he spent a
few weeks looking into conditions
with respect to mining. He is satisfied that the district is going to
"make good" in a mining way. The
heavy snow of last winter with its
late departure this spring, has delayed the prospectors considerably.
At present the mining men are getting out into the hills however and
the early summer should bring good
reports from the various mining
centres.
Without adequate transportation
facilities of course the country is
bound to open up much slower than
will be the case when these are provided .
The Silver Cup has experienced
trouble in getting supplies in and in
consequence operations are not proceeding there for the present.

.Mr. McEvoy was formerly export for
tlie Crows' .Nest Pass Coal Company.
He has covered tbe province of
Britisii Columbia very thoroughly in
the last ten years and knows well
ihe various coal measures that exist.
Before the construction of the
Grand Trunk Pacific commenced on
(his coast Mr. McEvoy paid a visit
of inspection to this northern part
of the province with the object of
ascertaining the possibilities of the
coal measures to be opened by the
railway. The result of bis investigations was the taking up of a large
area near Groundhog Mountain.
These have been held ever since and
now with the time approaching
when the Grand Trunk Pacific will
be within reach of the coal, Mr. Mc-
Evoy's company is preparing to open
up the coal, which is an assurance
that the prospects are excellent.
A force of men will be put to'
work by Mr. McEvoy this summer
to do development work, which
seems to give an assurance of a supply of coal from the interior as
soon as the line reaches Hazelton.

High Grade Quartz  Found on Mining Property  Near  Itev-
elstoke
Some promising samples of free
milling gold quartz were brought to
Revelstoke by a prospector several
days ago and have attracted considerable attention. The quartz was
taken from a claim located several
years ago, about eight miles south
o fthe city, the new find being uncovered by assessment, work undertaken this season. Mr. C. J. Montgomery, a well-known mining man
here, has been engaged to inspect
tbe property.
SURVEYING  KITAMAAT
('. S. Anderson, who was one of
th pioneer prospectors to reach the
southern end of Babine lake, came
in town a few days ago with good
reports of the progress In his locality, says the' Omineca Herald. He
owns the Silver Fox claims on Fifteen Mile Creek, so-called from its
distance from the head of the lake,
and other claims in the same vicinity. High assays In both gold and
silver have been obtained from different claims and a considerable
Stretch of country seems to bo min-
eralized. Assays this spring have
yielded above fifty dollars in gold
on Anderson's samples. Remarkably
rich specimens of ore have been on
exhibition in town Blnce hist fall
which were brought out from that
country and all the prospectors who
are Interested are enthusiastic over
the prospects of rich discoveries this
year.

TOWNSITE
The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
ownership.
SEE THE OFFICIAL MAP.—The
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite in British Columbia. Does that start you thinking?
 o	
i QTUDY THE MAP and you will
^ find Ellison is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact is a very important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the bub
af the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It. does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were do-
k'.g when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity c-i Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
lhat there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
piobably lowns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
OTUDY THAT MAP and you will
^ find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Grand Trunk Pacific has put its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
believe the company will Jo as much
for town sites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison. If
you. desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to fullow tho individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this Bummer, The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order clus.i with his wares. ELLISON is in the Missouri class. Therefore, I am not telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that  can be readily verified.
STUDY      THAT      MAP.—If      you
want to join that groat army of
investors-at-long-raii;?",     then     you
should put your money Into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
money.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—It is not
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
uL'fcials of the company state that
the company is not inteiested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
v.\ith the exception of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeeua at its confluence with
the Bulkley. You may change railway surveys; you may change the
location oi towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is   now   being  opened  up,  and   for
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both hy rail nnd water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
icils and navigation meet.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—You will
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—ROGERS'
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and »-eJ0 for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the
balance on easy  terms;   no interest.

HAS GOOD RECORD
Col. Fred White Comptroller of Royal
Northwest Mounted Police Has
Filled Important Duties.
He   Has   Occupied     Position     Since
Organization of the Force
in  1873
Colonel Fred White, C. M. G.,
Comptroller of the R. N. W. M. Police, whom a despatch from Ottawa
states that on Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
return from Europe will retire from
his position, has been comptroller of
this force since the time of its inception and was previously private secretary to Sir John A. MacDonald,
whose good judgment of the right
man for the right place was certainly not at fault on the occasion
that the then Mr. Fred White struck
him as being suited for this very
position.
In 1873 the authorities were com
pelled to carry out some scheme for
the maintenance of law and order
in this great west country and following the advice of military men
who had been chosen to report on
the matter, he Mounted Police were
created and sent to the country
where they have done so much to
make a peaceful and happy country
of it.
Seated at his desk in Ottawa, Colonel Whie has been the official head
of the force since that time and has
been responsible in a large measure
for the efficiency of the force under
his control. At Reglna, the commissioner has of course been in command and the discipline of the force
was always left to his judgment, but
It does not detract from the credit
of the several commissioners at Re-
gina in the least to say that had it
not been for the ability of the Comptroller in Ottawa the force would
not have earned the name they have
for the manner In which their duties
have been carried otjt.
That the Controller's services to
his country have not been overlooked is evidenced by the fact that
In the year 1883 he was given all
the power of a  deputy minister, in
1901 he was granted the rank of
Lieutenant-Colonel of the Active
Militia, and two years later he received the much coveted Championship of St. Michael and St. George
for the services he has rendered to
the Empire.
Amongst the rank and file he was
always popular on account of his
genial manner and readiness to consider the various cases that mikht
be brought to his notice of some little difficulty between officers and
men. Should any member of the
force be on leave in the capital, Colonel White always welcomed him at
his office and by the visits he thus
received he was able, by deducing
from conversation, to devise many
little things that make the lot of the
mounted policeman easier.
Colonel White seldom visited the
country over which he exercised so
great an influence, for his duties
were such that they did not admit
of many or long jaunts from his office desk.

A\  EXAMPLE
(Continued from Page One)
Anyone who visits the fruit lands
of the Skeena Valley cannot fail to
be -truck with tlie future that
awaits it. Tlie following from the,
Cranbrook Herald shows what lias
been done in another part of the
province In a few years. What is
true of the Kootenay country in this
regard will, undoubtedly be true of
the Skeena Valleys with the difference that the local field will open up
much  more quickly.
"Ten years ago the Canadian Pacific Railway steamers running on
the Arrow lakes between Robson
and Arrowhead called, now and
again at Deerpark, halted at unnamed points still more occasionally
to drop off a party of prospectors,
drove on to Nakusp and Halcyon
and for the rest moved in a loneliness that was profound." says the
Herald "It was more than thnt. it
was actually forbidding. The sanctity of the sleeping lake and tho
quiet mountains imaged in its
depths repelled all intrusion. At
long intervals some water fowl rose
from the surface and flew miles
away to some quieter reaches where
the noise of the boat did not penetrate. Save thnt there was hardly
a sign of life along the water or by
the shores.
"Those Immemorial conditions
have all been altered. What appeared a few years ago to be a mere
jungle of poplar, black birch and
brush lying between the rocky hills
and the shores of the lake has been
opened up in many places with garden patches and orchards, each with
Its little home close by the stream
that conies tumbling down from the
hills at the back. As the brush goes
down before the plough and the
mattock, the lines of fruit trees begin to show and between the rows
the strawberries and garden stuff
begin to arrest themselves in a
healthier green and a sense of being
cultivated and looked after.

SENTENCES   PASSED
Mr. Justice    Murpliy    Gives    Judgment in  Rioting Cases
from Here
At the close of the assize in Victoria last Friday, Mr. Justice Murphy passed sentence upon the prisoners convicted during the assize.
The Prince Rupert rioters were
given sentences as follows:
J. Vujovich, shooting with intent,
three years In the penitentiary.
Mike Burich, Dan Mulovlch, Mike
Secovich, Antone Sevich and Mike
Savich, unlawful assembly and rioting, two years  in  the penitentiary.
Noah Palovich Vuck Sandralovich
and Steve Brudo, unlawful assembly and rioting, with recommendation to mercy, one year hard  labor.
Jura Radulovlch, unlawful assembly and rioting, strong recommendation to mercy, six months'
hard   labor.
Thomas Allen, who shot Captain
Elliston at Work Point Barracks,
convicted of manslaughter was sen-
tenced to Imprisonment for his natural life.
Mr. Justice. Murphy told Allen
thai the jury had taken a very
merciful view of his crime, and one
with which his lordship did mil
agree. lie believed Allen to hi'
guiiiy of wilful   murder.
RON  OHIO
NEW     WESTMINSTER Word
has been received then .Mr. I-:. J.
Fader, of ihis city, who Is in London, England, on business connected
with large enterprises in this province, has consummated a deal khere-
by he has agreed lo furnish nn English company with 1,000,000 tons of
magnetic iron ore for the large steel
works that the English concern is
to erect in the vicinity of Coquitlani. According to the present plans,
the English concern, which has taken tbe name of the Canada Pacific
Steel Company, will start work on
the blast furnaces on the site of the
proposed plant near Coquitlam
some time in the early autumn, and
as soon as these furnaces are ready
for the ore, Mr. Fader expects to be
ready to furnish it to them as fast
as they want it. Mr. Fader and
his associates own un iron mine near
iciii when installed and thus there
would he no waste. More light would
then he available for private use.
The cost was put at less than $3,000<
and would pay, the committee was
informed.
Aid. Newton wanted to know why
this was not done when the plant
<vas first installed. It would ap-
pear that money had been wasted
last year when the plant was installed. Who was responsible, he
asked.
Aid. Smith explained that last
year there was great haste shown
for a plant. The engineer had to
get the plant wherever it was the
quickest secured.
Aid. Smith said he did not blame
the clt yengineer as much as some
did in connection with that work.
lie was ordered to get the light in
as quickly as possible and had to
buy a plant wherever he could get it.
Aid. Newton said the people's
money had been wasted and $50,000
had gone into the junk heap. Some
one last year must have bungled
woefully, and they were reaping the
whirlwind. He thought they should
have expert advice now.
Aid. Smith said not fifty per cent
of this had been wasted. Not more
than 30 per cent, probably had been
so spent.
On the recommendation of the
light committee, H. Melloch's tender
for the old wire was accepted, it being the highest.

COURT IS SITTING
Chief
Justice   Hunter    is
of Civil Actions
Here.
Suit   Relating   to   River   Navigation
Is Held Over for Additional
Evidence
Chief Justice Hunter is holding
court here this week for the trial of
civil actions. He will leave tomorrow for a trip up the line and return by Monday morning's steamer.
The case of Kelly et al. vs. Lindsay, which was to have been tried
before a special jury, was adjourned
owing to the illness of the defendant.
Opening yesterday with the case
of Hall vs. Dudgeon, all day was occupied with the case. The case is
one in which the plaintiff, Mrs. Hall,
who is represented by Alex Manson,
claimed $2,000 from her brother,
being money she advanced to him
to purchase horses to go into business with at Stewart. The defendant, represented hy L. W. Patmore,
put up the plea that the money was
really not his sister's, but was held
by her in trust in conjunction with
real estate speculations that had
been carried on jointly for years.
The first $1,000 he claimed as his
own share of that, and the second
$1,000  as  belonging  to  bis  mother.
His Lordship decided In favor of
the plaintiff.
Martin vs. Morrow et al., was
heard this morning. The plaintiff,
represented by W. B. Williams, was
an Indian merchant near Hazelton,
who preferred a claim against the
owners of the Inlander for not living up to an alleged agreement to
ililivor goods without delay.
Tin' defendant G. W. Morrow
ami partners, represented by C. V.
Bennett, contended that the letter
sent Martin was a circular one, expressing no particular obligation.
In connection with the case the
practice of river captains to say
what freight should go, came up.
The chief jus-fire said the sooner
this tangle wis straightened out the
better. The captain and boats are
only common carriers and must accept freight tendered. The only
excuse could be that there was no
more room on the boat. The de-
fondants contended that the freight
was specifically tendered.
It was finally deckled to adjourn
the case so as to take Captain Bu-
i-ey's evidence In the matter, his
lordship advising the two sides to
get together and settle the case.
This afternoon the case of Slater
Shoe Co.. vs. Larkin ol al., is being
hoard. In this case the plaintiffs
put  up a preferred claim for goods
A negro sharper started a bank in
Georgia, in one of the smaller tov us

dollars. Six months later he came
inio the bank and said: "1 wants
my  five  dollahs."
"Y'ou ain't got no five dollahs

acted as paying and receiving teller,
cashier, president and carried ihe
money in  his pocket.

ATTRACTIVE   TRIP
Trip Over the  G.T.P.  From  Here  to
Interior is a Surprise
Producer.
Rich    Areas    of   Land    Are    Heing
Opened up by the Line
of Railway
On Friday of last week, through
the kindness of General Superintendent Mehan and Superintendent
McNicholl, of the Grand Trunk Pacific, the editors of the local papers
were given an opportunity to go
over the line of railway now open
to public use from Prince Rupert to
Copper River. A trip where most of
the time was spent for the 200
miles on the rear platform of Mr.
Mehan's private ear, afforded an ex-
cellenl opportunity to study the
character of the road, its grades and
curves, the scenery and the character of the country generally through
which the railway passes. Many
preconceived ideas with respect to
the route are sure to be upset by
such a trip. It is safe to say that
no one can make that trip, however, and not feel more fully convinced than ever before that Prince
Rupert is destined to be advantageously situated with respect, to
being the terminus of a railway unexcelled on the continent and also
with respect to local trade opportunities.
While the section of the route represented by the first 100 miles of
railway out of Prince Rupert is
probably one of the most expensive
sections that the Grand Trunk Pacific has to build, a trip over it reveals the fact that it has been constructed quite up to the highest
standard. There have been exceedingly heavy cuts to make, but
the road bed if viewed independent
of the cleft rocks might lead the
traveller to believe he was speeding
over a prairie road. The curves are
easy and grades have been eliminated. Tlie route is in strange contrast with most of other mountain
roads wliere terrifying depths are
looked down to on one side and
giddy heights looked up to on the
other side. In the case of the Grand
Trunk Pacific the former is missing. The magnificent scenery of
the mountains is everywhere present but it is viewed from sea leve'
for the most part. The road follows
the Skeena River throughout the
whole course and only a few feet,
above its waters. Scarcely ever
during the whole of the 100 miles is
the river not in view and within a
stone's throw of the track.
Pushing Work
A trip over ihe line gives evidence that tho construction department under Mr. Mehan's experienced eye is not losing any time in
getting the road put in tlie best of
order. Every siding passed had Its
construction train engaged in placing the gravel and pushing forward
the time when the road will be capable of taking care of any demands
put upon it. At the Kltsumkalum
River a gravel pit of the first ordej
is located directly on the right of
way of the road. A steam shovel
with a clipper capable of lifting two
yards and a half of gravel at a
time has been placed in the pit. The
face of the pit is deep and an abundance of it exists in the great
mound that Is there located. The
gravel is of first-class quality, free
from all dirt and easily worked.
The big dipper never misses taking
its full complement and no shovelling by hand is required. With
about eight standard engines available for the work, in addition to the
one used In the regular service, the
amount of ballast being taken out is
groat.    It  is being deposited on the
track at the rate of about two miles
and a half a day. Following the
ballast laying are two forces of
eighty men each, engaged in the
work of lifting the track and putting the ballast in place. With
these gangs at work two miles a
day are being turned over practically completed and callable of taking care of trains run at full speed.
The road has not been built to be
brought gradually to standard with
respect to grades and curves. It is
built according to the highest standard and the curves are brought to
the easiest with construction. These
grades will not be altered. The result is that even as a "skeleton"
road, without ballast, the bed is superior to many lines after completion. In consequence the general
superintendent Is able to haul twenty per cent  heavier loads  with  the

liRITISH EMPIRE ARRIVES
Tbe new Northern Steamship
Company's steamer British Empire
has reached the coast after 141 days
from the Firth of Forth, Scotland.
She will be cleaned after her 15,000
miles voyage. She will probably be
placed on the Victoria, Vancouver,
Prime Rupert and way ports run in
a few days, and will thereafter
maintain a weekly service with the
Cetriana to those ports.
The steamer cleared from Grangemouth, Scotland, January 21, in
command of Captain James Carse.
She reached St Vincent on February
17, wliere she remained for a month
pending the arrival of repairs for
her engines which had broken
down. She left St Voncint twenty-
seven days after her arrival there,
and made good time to this coast,
stopping only at coaling ports on the
way round.
The Britisii Empire is a smaller
vessel than the Cetriana, and seems
to have been built to carry a larger
proportion of freight to her passenger capacity that the larger vessels.
She is of 562 registered tonnage and
252 net tonnage She is of steel construction, was built at Garston in
1902 by the Garston Dock & Ship-
buIldlng'Company, Limited, is registered 100 A-l at Lloyds, and was
formerly owned by T. J. Sharpe
& Co., of Liverpool. Her dimensions are: Length, 167 feet; beam,
26 feet; draft, 11 feet 5 Inches. Her
engines were constructed by Ross eS:
Duncan, Glasgow. Altogether she
is a very acceptable addition to the
Pacific coast trade. She was bought
by the Northern Steamship Company to take tlie place of the steamer Petriana, recently sold to the
anadian-Northern Steamship Company.

BATTER'S  DUTY
Bill Dahlen, manager of the
Brooklyn Nationals, favors the theory that the batter should pass up
the first ball offered by the pitcher,
whether a man is on first base or
not.
"It's much more advantageous to
a player to take the first ball," says
the Superbas' leader, "for by so doing he has a better opportunity of
reaching first base. As a rule, a
pitcher will put all he has on his
first ball, and the chances are about
ten to one against the batter hitting
it safely.
"Let him take the first strike.
The fact that he has one called on
him should not Impair his hitting
ability in the least. A good batter
should be able to bit as well with
one strike against him as with a
clean  slate.
"By bitting "t the first ball the
batter loses two other opportunities
to reach first base—via a base on
balls or by being hit with a pitched
ball. Should he connect with the
first one and the drive fails to go
safe he will also sacrifice these other
chances to get on.
"It always pays to work the pitcher to the limit. It Is only logical
that a heaver, no matter how strong
or robust, will not be as strong at
the end of four or five innings, during which the batters have played
him to the limit, as he will be at
the end of the same period if he
has pitched but one or two balls to
each batter. Waiting out a pitcher
in this fashion has caused the winning of many battles in the last Innings.
"Of course it must be remembered
that this system cannot be faithfully
and rigorously adhered to day in
and day out. If the pitcher knows
the batter will pass up the first ball
he is sure to whip a beauty over the
late,  an  advantage  which  will  add
greatly to his confidence.
"However, when advisable a batter should be able to mix up his
antics and attempt to cross the
pitcher. Should he have been passing up the first ball and be knows
that the pitcher is aware of this fact
it would be well for him to reverse
his policy and swing at the first one,
which under such circumstances is
usually a very hitable offering. By
thus mixing the hitting the batter
always keeps the burler from knowing as to what to expect from him
after the first ball."
PROVINCIAL   GOLFER
Miss Violet Pooley, of Victoria,
was the subject of special mention
In the report on the ladles' golf
championships played on the Pot-
rush links on Friday. Telegraphic
dispatches say:
"The finals resulted In a victory
for Miss Dorothy Campbell, of Hamilton, Ontario, the present holder of
tlie I'nited States and Canadian ladies' championships, and the British
champion of 1909. She defeated
Miss Violet Hezlet (Royal Potrush)
by 3 holes up and  2 to play."
"One of the outstanding matches
was that in the fourth round, when
Miss B. Thompson IBeverley) beat
Miss V. Pooley (Britisii Columbia)
by 1 up. Miss Pooley played brilliantly in the outward journey, completely outdistancing her formida-
opponent as well as holing some
timely putts. She turned five up
in 42. She became six up at the
tenth, but overplaying a wooden
club second at tbe next hole, she
found the rough and lost the hole.
A bad putt missed her a chance of
a half at the next, and then she
completely lost her game. Miss
Thompson seized her opportunity,
and, gaining seven consecutive holes
took the lead at the seventeenth, an
easy half at the home hole giving
her a sensational victory by one
up."

Average Year Expected on the Skeena-
Alaska Preparing for Large
Pack.
Fraser River Is Making Ready for a
Very  Small Take of Sockeyc
This Season
The prospects for the canning sea
son in the- Skeena District arc very
good anil packers expect an average
year. Unlike the Fraser River, the
Skeena's seasons arc- fairly uniform
This year the Fraser expel,-- a viiy
light  catch.
Canneries on the Fraser River are
only making preparations tor a light
pack, while ten new canneries in
Alaska, bringing the number up to
58, Indicate that the companies In
operation there imagine that there
will be a big pack. The second gang
of cannery workers has been sent up
the coast. The season in the north
commenced early this month, while
that in the Fraser will! not be in
full swing until the middle of July.
The total catch In British oluin-
bia last year was 762,201 cases, that
of 1909, 967,020 cases, of 190S,
547,459 cases, and of 1906, 029,-
460 cases This schedule and that of
years further back would indicate
that this year's catch will not be as
large as last year's and packers are
estimating it as not much above
that of 1907.
Tbe Britisii Columbia Packers'
Association, which controls salmon
packing on this coast to a large
degree, are only operating five of
their fifteen Fraser River canneries.
Other packers in the same district
will he the A. B.C. Packing Company, Limiteo, J.H.Todd & Sons,
Canadian Canning Company, B.C.
Canning Company, Windsor Packing
Company (which has bought the
plant of Malcolm, Cannon & Company), St. Mungo Canning Company, Great West Canning Company and M. DesBrisay & Company.
Three firms have dropped out, those
of the Northern Canning Company,
the Unique Canning Company and
Lee Coy Company. Total catch last
year, 223,148 cases.
The B. C. Packers' Association
will operate four canneries on the
Skeena River. Other canneries are
A.B.C. (2), J.H.Todd, B.C. Canning, Kildala Packing, Wallace
Bros., Skeena River Company and
Cassiar Packing. Total catch last
year 223,035 cases.
Rivers Inlet will have seven canneries, B.C.Packers (2), A. .B. C.
Packing, J. H.Todd, B.C.Canning,
Kildala Packing, Strathcona Packing. Total pack last year 129,398
cases.
In the Naas River district, the
A. B. C. Company will operate the
establishments of John Wallace and
Pt. Nelson C. and S. Co., Ltd..
The Kincolith Packing Co. and the
Federation B. S. Canning Co. will
also operate in the district. Total
pack last year,  39,720  cases.
In the outlying districts establishments will be run by B. C. Packers
Association (3), Kildala Packing
Company, Robert Draney (2), Wm.
Hickey Packing Company, Clayo-
quot Salmon Packing Company,
Quathlska Packing Company, J. H.
Todd & Co., Alberni Pacing Company and the A. II. C, Packing Company, which has purchased the establishment of the Knight Inlet
Canning Company. Total pack last
year, 147,900 cases.
In Alaska all restrictions have
been removed and the companies are
reported to be preparing for the
largest pack ever handled there.
The following are the ton new
canneries with their locations;
Pacific American Fisheries, Thin
Point,   Alaskan   Peninsula.
Fish Hawk Company, Hawk Inlet,
Southeastern Alaska.
Tee Harbor Packing Company,
Tee Harbor, near Juneau,
Deep Sea Salmon Company, Cape
Edwards, north of Sitka.
Llndenberger Packing Company,
Helini Canal, Southeastern Alaska.
Seldovla Packing Company, Sel-
do\ la, Cook" Inlet.
Alaska Fishermen's Packing Company,  Koggiung,  Bristol Bay.
C. A. Burkhard't & Co., Chomley,
Southeastern  Alaska.
Alaska Packers' Association, Nak-
nek,  Western Alaska.
Tongas Trading Company, floating  cannery.
Owing to the scarcity of canned
salmon of all kinds the world over
and the fact that the tntlre pack
of 1911 has already been oversold,
subject to the approval of opening
prices, packers believe that opening
prie'es will he higher than a year |
ago. A spei laity will be made in
pink salmon, which in addition to
the Alaska pack in this variety is es-,
tlraated at 400, :ases.

LATEST RAIL PR1JECT
Proposed  Line  From  Hudson
Pacific Coast Through North
Lands.
Bay to
Prospectus for the Now Line Issued
Giving the Route of Proposed Roml
The promoters of the Hudson's
Bay, Peace River and Pacific. Railway, claimed to be the shortest
transcontinental railway which it is
proposed shall cross the continent
from Fort Churchill on tbe Hudson's
Bay to Port Simpson, on the Pacific,
have issued a short prospectus. According to the prospectus the headquarters of the company are at 408
McArthur  building,  Winnipeg.
From the city of Winnipeg a line
is to be run easterly and northeasterly to Port Nelson on the Hudson's
Bay, thence in a northwesterly direi'-
tion to Fort Churchill. From here
the road will run westward between
the fifty-eight and sixtieth parallels
of latitude to a point near Fort Vermilion on the Peace River, tbence to
Fort St. John and from there to a
point where the Naas River crosses
the fifty-sixth parallel. It will then
go down either the east or the west
side of the Naas River to where the'
stream enters the Pacific.
Branches are provided for from
Fort St. John to Edmonton through
the Peace River ind Grande Prairie
countries, a distance of 350 miles,
and from a point on the main line
near tbe Cochrane River to Prince
Albert, a distance of 400 miles. The
distance from Hudson's Bay to the
Pacific Coast is estimated at 1,500
miles and from Winnipeg to th Hudson's Bay is 525 miles.
The prospectus contains several
extracts from government reports regarding the fertility of the soil in
the country through which the road
will pass and the advisability of tho
Hudson's Bay. In addition to these
it contains a copy of the act of incorporation passed In the Dominion
house during the recent session.
The men mentioned    as    forming
the company are all residents of
Winnipeg with tbe exception of John
Nairn, a distiller, of the city of
Edinburgh,  Scotland.    The company
is capitalized at $10,000,000. it is
authorized to issue debentuies to the
extent of $50,000 per mile of single
track Tu- and $70,000 per mile Of
double track.

TOOTH  QUESTION
Dental     Authority     Holds     Opinion
That  Mankind's Teeth  Differ
Altogether from Monkeys'
Mankind <an no longer congratulate or commiserate itself on evolution from the monkey. Dental research has shown that the monkey
is of recent, if not of more recent,
origin than mankind. This was explained to the members of the Ontario Dental Association Thursday by
Dr. Hordllcha, who is the anthropologist of the Smithsonian Institute
of the United States National Museum at Washington The evolution
of the human tooth is ascribed by
Dr. Hordllcha to a change in diet
away back in the remote age*. The
primitive being having multiplied
beyond the sustaining power of his
environment, branches of the family
had to seek "fresh woods and pastures new," where conditions were
different and food dissimilar Then
it was thai ill" jaw began to change
its form The human tooth being
nothing hut a natural tool, developed  In  the  first   place to  fulfill  the
organic function nf mastication, and
when tlie nature of mankind's sustenance changed, and hard substances had no longer to be ground,
in fact, when man first began to eat
grain, the canine tooth grew smaller
and the molars followed suit.
Primitive man had no chin. This
was not a sign of low intelligence,
but rather that his teeth were large
und his dental arch broad. When
the teeth grew smaller the dental
arch receded, and as a result a chin
formed This may be seen at the
present day in aged people; the dental arch recedes in old age, and the
chin ir, consequence protrudes to a
greater extent.
As the human race proceeds, Dr.
Hordllcha predicts that    the    teeth
will become smaller and more irregular; in fact at the present day in
the cultured classes tooth space is
perceptibly smaller and the teeth
more irregular. As time rolls on a
man may exist almost, if not quite,
toothless. Then the shape of his
skull will change, enlarging later-
tlly.
One sign of civilization is the
elimination or partial elimination of
the wisdom teeth. In skeletons
found In ancient Egypt and in Yucatan the wisdom tooth is missing,
therefore, it may be put forward
that these peoples attained a civilization as great as that of the present day, and also that they were a
grain-eating  people.
In skeletons discovered in Yucatan teeth have been found which
have been inlaid with cut-stone, and
even gold, thus allaying the ravages
of decay, showing 'that dentistry
existed  far back in the ages.

Character of Country
The line running out of Prince
Rupert passes through diversified
country. Immediately adjoining the
city for nearly forty miles the country is not such as to appeal to the
farmer. In that space there will
undoubtedly be some farm land
■which owing to its proximity to a
centre like Prince Rupert, will give
good results. It is heavily timbered
in many parts and as a source of
fuel will give good returns for clearing. - With the cutting off of the
timber, grazing land will be developed and areas that will produce
vegetables will likely be opened up.
Within the district at the present
time the portion nearest to Prince
Rupert is given over largely to the
salmon canneries. This industry
will continue to be a staple one
along the lower reaches of the
Skeena. The building of the railway past the cannery centres seems
to have been followed already by the
putting up of a rather more substantial class of buildings for the workers.
The railway gives easy means of
communication and will have a stimulating effect  upon the industry.
Sawmills will be assured also
along the line of rail and already
one or two good mills are located
on the road. With an increasing
demand for lumber this will continue to expand and mills will increase .
The Snow Sheds
When about fort? miles out the
mountains seem to close in as if an
effort were made to prevent a further invasion nf the interior by the
modern method of transportation.
Mountain tops, devoid of vegetation,
give proof that snow slides are to be
expected constantly during the winter months. To their sorrow the
officials of the road know that these
slides have to he reckoned with'.
Lasl winter was an exceptional one
in point of snowfall. In consequence the very best guide was afforded for the locating of the sheds
to protect the track. Today the
road runs through snowcuts where a
depth of well on to twenty feet is
shown. Gangs of men are at work
putting in ihe sheds thai will protect the line and remove all danger
of any stopping of the service next
«Inter.
The company has millions or feet
of timber purchased and on the way
the work has been accomplished, the
the work has been accompllsed, the
Structures heing specially strong.
Fortunately in nearly every ease, the
opportunities fur getting rid of the
snow as it comes down the mountain side are easy. Altogether
about hall' a mile of shedding will
have tu be constructed. The long-
est single shed will be about 1,200
feet at mile 44. Here about 3,000
feet of cribbing will have to be done
anil about ".,000 feet of timber will
he  used  in  addition.
Farming Sections
Alter a few miles of this snow-
gathering area and the road passes
into a different character of country. The soil is no longer of a
muskegg character, It is, on the
contrary, a true soil capable of giving excellent returns in a farming
way. Prom time to time the mountains recede from the river, leaving
finite large areas that may he open
to cultivation. In .several instances
Paring is being attempted and the
future will show scattered settlements, where the owners by truck
gardening or by dairying will be
able to reap good results.
When Batcman's Landing is
reached the farm areas have become
unite extensive and clearings are to
be seen on both sides of the river
with well-cultivated patches where
potatoes and other vegetables have
been planted. On the opposite side
of the Skeena from the rails the extensive Lakelse Valley can be seen
awaiting clearing operations. A wide
valley extending as a level area
far into the interior, the land is said
to be second to none in the province. A short run shows the equally
famed Copper River Valley on the
opposite bank of the Skeena. In the
case of the Copper River Valley,
however, the fact that the mountains rise up quicker and that the
valley is not so fully exposed from
the rai'way side, leaves the traveller
more in doubt as to the extent. It
has been proved to be a rich area,
however and with the work that
W. J. Sanders is doing there in the
way of clearing, it should come into
prominece as a fruit centre at once.
Kitsumkalum
On the railway side of the river
however, the land is inviting. A
warm soil is exposed to view and
the land only awaits clearing operations in order to develop into a producing area to meet the demands of
Prince Rupert and the mining and
industrial centres that will spring
up in this western country.
The soil is light, and, judging
from appearances, there is an abundance of sunshine to ripen fruits.
The clearing operations in many
parts will be heavy but there is an
immense revenue possible from the
large timber that is found on the
land. In other parts the land is
somewhat lighter timbered and
clearing will be much less expensive.
A superficial examination of the
soil, however, as the train passes
along would indicate that there is
not the same depth of soil on
these parts and that in consequence
greater care will he required to
maintain the fertility and the plowing in of clover and similar crops
so as to keep the humus in the soil.
As one passes on the train, the
eye falls upon small orchards already planted and now in full
bloom. Vegetables and small fruits
are also to be seen and on the farm
of Mr. Little there was a strong
growth of grain on the cleared
iands. Subdivided, as this land
must, be as the years go by, there Is
room for thousands of people to live
and reap rich returns from the soil.
The long warm days should give
very heavy crops in all lines.
Scenery Is Grand
Pur scenery the route along the
Grand Trunk Pacific is all that could
he asked for. Skirting the river all
ihe way, there is the grandeur of
the snow-capped mountains ever
open to the eye. In the foreground
there is Ihe restful view of timber
lands. The Skeena abounds n low
lying islands all covered down to the
water's edge with the varying colors produced by the different varieties of trees. The rich green of the
cotton wood is ever present which
mingles with the evergreen trees so
as to produce a pleasing effect.
Travellers who I na few months'
time enter Prince Rupert by the all-
rail route, will certainly be given a
splendid impression of the new
north as they pass along the Grand
Trunk Pacific. Where now heavy
limber is always present there will
then he large areas devoted to the
growing  of  field   grains,  vegetables

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

and fruits. Prince Rupert will not
have to wait long for a plentiful
supply of garden produce from the
rich valleys of the Skeena.
ON WAY TO MILLS
Mr.  Corlett of the Moresby Lumber
Company Has Gone Over
to Inspect Works
Mr. Corlett, who controls the
Moresby Lumber Company, which
has the mill at Queen Charlotte Clty:
reached Prince Rupert on his way
from the south on Saturday, going
over to the mills the same day. He
will remain a short time there before leaving again for the south.
Mr. Corlett has in view nothing new
in connection with the mill. He is
now cutting at the rate of 40,000
feet a day This meets the demand
at present.
By running ten hours a day the
capacity could be brought up to
.ebout 60,000 feet, or by turning on
the electric lighting which is all installed the plant could be kept going throughout the 24 hours and
saw 100,000 feet a day. The demand, however, at present, does not
warrant this.

On Sunday evening the Salvation
Army will give a sacred concert, for
