SOLICITORS'   RATES
Subject Discussed By City Council at
Last Night's
Meeting.
Opposition Raised by Sonic .Aldermen
to the Salaries Paid null Services Rendered
The subject of the salary paid the
city solicitors came up for discussion
at last night's council meeting, when
Aid. Smith asked if anything had
been done along the line he suggested some time before relative to reducing the salary.
Aid. Pattullo said the subject had
been taken up at a meeting of tbe
finance committee. There was no report to be made. Speaking for himself, however, he said that he did not
think the solicitors were receiviny
any too high a figure. They were
getting $250 a month and $50 for a
stenographer. For the work done
In the early part of the year the
stipend was not sufficient, he felt.
There had been a tremendous
amount of work. Much of it had not
been shown on the surface, as an
Instance he cited the preparations by
the solicitors of a bylaw that took
possibly a whole week, and which
was not found necessary to put in
force. This was the bylaw relative
to floating debentures.
Aid. Mclntyre said that he felt that
the pay would have to be made for
this month. There would only be another month. He thought it would
look too much like a death bed repentance to reduce the salary at this
late date.
Aid. Smith said that when the firm
was employed it was estimated that
they would be very busy for three
months, but that after that time a
reduction could be made or their services despensed with. He did not
thing that there was the work being
done that Aid. Pattullo represented.
The stenographer, at least, might be
cut off.
Aid. Pattullo said hardly a day
passed that he was not up in the office of the solicitor. Aid. Lynch also
was frequently up. Mr. Patmore put
in a bill for $000 or $20 a day for
work at the time of the incorporation
of the city. The bill of Mr. Williams
for JW00 was refused. He felt that.
If the one was allowed the other
might be. Taken all together, the
solicitors were not getting more than
they were entitled lo.
Aid. Smith thought this last argument of Aid. Paltnllo's had nothing
to do with the question. There had
never been any mention of a stenographer when the firm was engaged.
If there was any such work to be
done the city solicitors had a right
to do that. This was a heavy expense.
Aid. Pattullo called attention to
the fact that these city solicitors did
the court work for the city and were
In consequence cut off from a lot of
other business. He felt that the
solicitors had not been overpaid.
Aid. Lynch said there had been a
lot of work in the hands of these
men. Questions as to moving houses
off the streets, how to put in sewers,
etc., had all occupied a lot of time.
Aid. Pattullo also said they had
been busy answering a writ against
the city from the Empire.
Aid. Hildltch said $2fi0 was a good
salnry. The character of the services
received warranted culling down the
salary. He was not at all satisfied
with hem. He referred to the advice
given as to the legality of voters. The
city solicitors gave a written opinion
that a man could vote whether he
paid the poll tax or not. A few weeks
later In writing they contradicted
this. The contracts drawn for Mr.
McMordie and Mr. Watson were not
done satisfactorily. The inability, he
felt, of the rlly solicitors to draw'up
a proper contract had led to a dispute as to Second avenue which
might result in the work being torn
up or the city made to pay $1,200.
They had taken a lot ofttlme to decide
on the question of the Dunedin Block
and the moving of buldlngs of the
streets, lie was forced to the conclusion that although Aid. rati alio
said the solicitors were very b n s
with Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Lynch,
the council saw little benefit from
their work.
Aid. Pattullo said that he had
thought that Aid. Hilditch was the
apostle of high wages.
Aid. Hilditch said he believed In
good wages for good services.
Aid.  Pattulio ■
solicitors were not efficient they
should be discharged. It was difficult to get lawyers In this city that
were able to give the fullest advice
on the Municipal Clauses Act.
Aid. Barrow said Aid. Pattullo had
spoken many times but he had not
answered what he wanted to know.
Was the stenographer necessary? If
not, the stenographer should be discharged.
Aid Pattullo said that he believed
it. was understood that the stenographed was to be employed. He did
not think that the stenographer had
been employed all the time on city
work. Tiie salary of the stenographer
only brought the salary of the solicitors up to what was about sufficient
as a salary for these men.
Aid. Smith did not think that the
idea of hiring the stenographer was
to raise the salary of the solicitors.
*
*     APPRECIATED RECEPTION
The following letter received by J. A. Kirkpatrick is
self-explanatory:-—
Victoria, Nov. 9, '10.
"Dear Mr. Kirkpatrick.
"I desire through you as
chairman of the public meeting at Prince Rupert during
. my recent visit to express my
best thanks for the courtesy
extended to me, and to say
how much I appreciated the
very kind reception accorded
me.    Yours very truly,
RICHARD McBRIDE."
The stenographer was hired to do the
clerical work for the city, as to preparing the bylaws, etc., ln the early
stages of the city's business.
Aid. Naden felt that the solicitors
were getting a good salary. He believed thai, men of as little experience as the city solicitors in the
Dominion were, in many cases, receiving less than the amount paid by
the city alone to these solicitors. The
council was in the situation of having
to engage solicitors that were not
acquainted with the laws of the province and accordingly had to pay
higher than they would otherwise
have had to do.
Aid. Pattullo felt it would be unwise to attempt to reduce the salary
at this time with only one month
longer to run. The solicitors would,
he felt satisfied, resign and the city
would have to engage a new firm.
Aid. Hilditch while he felt reluctant to keep the city solicitors on,
yet felt that the danger of upsetting
the condition as Aid. Pattullo suggested for one month would prompt
him to favor allowing this to continue to the end of the year.
The subject was then allowed to
drop.

PASSENGERS SAFE
All From Portland are Now in Katalla
Awaiting Arrival of Another
Steamer.
Fears Are Allayed Regarding Situation of Those Cast  I'pon the
Desolate Island
(Spdal  to The Journal)
Katalla, Alaska, Nov. 18.—The
passengers from the wrecked steamer Portland are safe in town. They
will proceed north by the next
steamer.
The passengers who reached Katalla Island, an inhospitable location,
from the wrecked steamer, were in
dire straits until the storm subsided
sufficiently to allow them toeing
brought ashore here where they are
being cared for.
The Portland is a wooden vessel
under command of Capt. Franz
Moore, and is operated by the Alaska
Coast Company. In a blinding snow
storm last Saturday morning the
ship, while creeping through tlje
darkness, grounded.
The passengers were in their beds
and rushed onto deck in their night
clothes. The passengers were all
landed safely and are now safe in
Katalla.

CARPENTERS' WAGES
Men Employed as Expert Workmen on
Street Work to Get 62 1-2
Cents an Hour.
Aid.   Hilditch  Objects to Men Being
Employed as Assistants And Doing Skilled Labor
In future all workmen engaged by
the city as skilled carpenters will re-,
ceive the union wages of 62% cents
an hour. This subject was introduced before the council last evening on
a recomemndation from the streets
committee mbodying this rate of pay.
Aid. Hildltch, as the avowed defender of the rights of the working-
men, called attention to the fact that
on the city pay roll there were carpenters put down as assistants. In
fact they were all paid as assistants.
The work done on the trestle work
on Second avenue was done by these
men and was highly creditable. It
could be done by none but expert
mechanics. He felt that these men
should receive the regular pay of
mchanlcs.
Aid. Pattullo said the policy of
the council he understood was to pay
the highest rate prevailing. If any
were not paid according to this scale
it could be adjusted.
The clerk explained that the city
engineer had explained that these
men were not skilled carpenters.
Aid. Hilditch said there was not a
single man shown on the roll as a
skilled carpenter. To have assistants
there would have to be at least one
skilled carpenter.
Aid. Pattullo thought If any man
had objection to raise he could appeal to the council.
Aid. Hilditch said if any man complained he would be discharged.
Aid. Lynch did not think the city
should bring prices down.
The recommendation of the committee was adopted.
OFFICIAL COUNT
Hon.   W.   It.   Boss   Had   Majority   of
225 Over His Opponent
The streets committee at the council meeting last evening recommended that the tender of J. A. Meeker for
tbe planking of Sixth avenue be ac<
cepted.
This was adopted.
A recommendation against the
putting in of temporary bulkheads
on Second avenue was received also.
The committee favored only such re-
laining walls as the city engineer
recommends.
This recommendation found favor
with the council also.
The committee's report against allowing a Chinese laundry to connect
up with a drain was carried. ^^^^^^^^

Reciprocity Conference is Referred to in
Speech of His Excellency
Hope   Expressed   That   Aiiiingiiients

Canadian Products
(Special to The Journal)
Ottawa, Nov. 18.—The Dominion
parliament was opened by Earl Grey
yesterday with the usual pomp. The
speech of His Excellency referred to
the arrival of the cruisers Niobe and
Rainbow to serve as the nucleus of
a Canadian navy; to the Hudson Bay
railway; Quebec bridge; the prosperity of the country, eft.
Regarding the reciprocity conference with the United States, the
speech says that while no conclusions
have been reached, the discussion of
the subject by the representatives
encourages the government to hope
that at an early day, without any
sacrifice of Canadian interests, arrangements may be made to admit
the products of the Dominion into
the United States on satisfactory
terms.
DUMPING  GROUNDS
Serious Problem Faces the City Council
to Find Places for Depositing
Excavations.
LADIES' ATHLETIC CLUB
Enthusiastic   Association   Has   Been
Formed
Streets Committee Will Have to 'Consider the Subject at tin Early
Date
At the meeting of the city council
la;VC'vening a petition was received
from W. S. Barker asking leave to
dump rock and earth on the streets
from the excavations he was making
for two buildings. This introduced
the subject of dumping grounds
which during the evening was discussed at some length. The petition was
referred to the streets committee.
The city engineer reported during
the evening that there was need of
a dumping ground and suggested
that at Hays' Cove at the end of
Fifth avenue there could be 20,000
cubic yards disposed of. On Eighth
avenue between Thompson and McBride street there was room for 13,-
nOO yards more, but this might lead
lu an alteration in the grade. There
could be provision made for filling
the unsubdivided portion of Ninth
avenue which could be converted Into a recreation ground.
This report will be dealt with by
the streets committee also.
Aid. Hilditch called attention to
the fact, that Mr. Rogers was getting
permission to dump on the waterfront just in rear of the company's
right-of-way. There was a lot of
room ther and he thought perhaps
that would make'a good dumping
ground for private parties if the com-
ny would give permission.
The acting mayor, Aid. Mobley, referring to this, stated that the most
of the space there was under lease
to different parties, but he thought
permission could be got to fill in.
FISHERY LICENSES
Ills Honor Judge .Mclnnes in Vancouver gave judgment In the appeal
of a fisherman named Antonlno, In
which  he  upholds  the   right   of  the
provincial    government    to    exact a
fisherman's license under its powers
of taxation.    Antonlno was a fisher-1
man who had taken out his Dominion
license, but refused-to take out  the
provincial license.    He wn   taket  '

SIDEWALKS BLOCKED
Difference Arises With Respect to the

The putting in place of sidewalks
on Second avenue between Sixth and

history. A very pronounced petition
was received asking that such sidewalks be put in and that they be sufficiently strong to carry wagons as
well as pdestrians. Tliis was in view
ol' the fact that the roadway Is beinr.
blocked up by tbe street Improvements now In progress.

The annual meeting of the Conservative Association held on Tuesday evening in the Mclntyre Hall,
certainly showed that the supporters
of that party were in strength in the
city. The attendance was considerably over 200 members and throughout the meeting there was a tone of
extreme optimism relative to the
cause represented. Willi the exception of the position of president,
which went unanimously to J. A.
Kirkpatrick, the retiring president,
there were keen competitions for the
different offices and for places on
the executive. Although the competition was keen there was the best of
spirit prevailing throughout the
whole evening. , The large number of
ballots made necessary to secure
election forced the meeting to continue in session until after midnight.
VV. Manson, M.P.P., was unanimously elected honorary president.
The result of the polling fur officers was as follows;—
Hon. president, to. Manson, M.P.P.

Before proceeding to the election
of officers, resolutions of confidence
In R. L. Borden, leader of the party
at Ottawa, lion Richard McBride,
premier of the province, and William
Manson, M.P.P., representative of the
district, were passed unanimously.
The resolution relative io Mr. Borden was moved by A. Carss and seconded by II. II. Clarke. It expressed
confidence In his leadership and in
the speeches delivered, the patriotic
aims and the unselfish motives of the
leader in the Dominion House was
referred   to.
J. C. McLennan moved a vole of
confidence In Premier McBride, In
which reference was made to his recent visit to the city and the good
governmenl which he was giving the
province. Mr. McLennan In his speech
paid a compliment to the manner in
which the premier of Ihe prov! I
had conducted affain The resolution
was seconded  by to,  E.  Fisher.
The suggestion was made thai Mr.
McBride would yel be prime minister
of Canada, and this was received
with loud appause.
The resolution of confidence (n Mr,
Manson was ably introduced by M. M.
Stephens, who referred to the honesty of purpose of the member and to
the fact that he did not require all
to agree with him on all points to
maintain their friendship. The resolution was seconded by J. R. Beatty.
Mr. Manson in responding, expressed In turn the confidence he had
been able to place In the association.
He had found it ever ready to assist

CIVIC   PUBLICITY
Paper on Subject Read Before Union of
British Columbia Municipalities.
Duty   Attaching   to   Cities   to   Make
Known the Resources And Advantages of District
The following Is a paper read at
the convention of the Union of B. C.
Municipalities, which met at Salmon Ann, by Mayor Lee of New
Westminster.
"ln considering the many sub.
jects upon which to base a few remarks discussing some phase of municipal life and projects in this eWst-
ern province, I have found it very
difficult to select one which was not
too complex for me to deal with in he
time at my disposal.
"I thought of the question of il
nance and municipal accounting but
these have been dealt with by much
more experienced and able men than
I am. Municipal taxation, exemption of improvements, public works
and extension of municipal water
and light system under tbe local improvement clauses, granting of fran
chises, etc., are all to me Important
subjects and worthy of most careful
consideration.
Road Building Improvement
"W/e are living at a period when
better streets and roads are required
and demanded by the citiiens of our
various cities and municipalities and
this is as it should be. Transportation is the greatest question before
the people of British Columbia today.
We have the mines, land, water and
climate in all parts of this fair province to make it the most prosperous
and important section of the Domin
ion. Given good roads and favorable
transportation facilities, I am con
vinced unprecedented development
will follow. The natural physical
difficulties of this .province make
road building a very expensive feat
ure of municipal government. In
order that we might construct these
good roads we are compelled to seek
money in the world's financial cen
tres-—we issue bonds and offer them
to those interested. I think that you
will find without a single exception
that those places that are best
known by advertisemen and publicity
receive the highest prize for their
bonds. This brings me to the subject which I have chosen to make a
few observations on.
Civic Publicity
"Now let us try and ascertain what
publicity means. It is simply 'advertising.' Its object, is similar to
that of the merchant who is desirous
of obtaining your custom. Every
large mercantile firm spends thousands of dollars annually to let the
public know why their goods are
superior to those of any other firm
or if not superior why the public will
be better served by trading with
them. They would not do this year
after year if they did not get results.
"It is a paying proposition for the
•man of commerce and why should It
not be for an enterprising municipality? To advertise successfully, of
course, we must have the goods and
be prepared to deliver them. I feat
the majority of us do not realize our
responsibllties. Some seem to think
they have been elected by our fellow
citizens from personal esteem, instead of taking it that our capacity!
for business management is, or
should be, recognized as our principal claim to the confidence of the
electorate. We, after election day Is
past, should therefore endeavor to
throw ourselves into the municipal
life of our town or municipality in
the character only of managing director of a large business corporation. The first duty we have to perform Is to ascertain how best to extend the ri'pulaion of Hie firm, how
we can improve its business of situation, price of its land, climate and
ill ami every advantage it possesses,
"This is where the skill is required. It is nol necessary to merely
attract a casual enquirer, for wo
must have the goods lo deliver before we can start out on an advertising campaign. We must be constantly on the watch to discover something that, the people want, having
exploited these we must not be disappointed if we do not. obtain Immediate results for as In commercial
advertising so in publicity work. The
reader frequently reads the subject
matter and not needing the goods
forgets the Items until be is remind
ed later on by further advertising
which may cultivate the mind Into
a belief that he requires that which
you have. This once accomplished,
you have a sure customer as soon as
circumstance will warrant.
Wide Senile of Work
Commercial advertising is entirely
local or confined within a limited radius. Municipal advertising or publicity is intended to attract the attention of people far distant, who are
seeking new homes, new fields of enterprise and new means of employing their capital or energy. Several
of your districts have recently expended hundreds of dollars in this
manner by the very excellent display
of produce and fruit which you sent
to the Provincial Exhibition at New
Westminster and the Apple Show at
Vancouver. Some of course say
"The game is not worth the candle,"
to use an old saying—that the results do not justify the expenditure.
At the Apple Show recently held in
Vancouver, a real estate firm from
the Okanagan Valley, who had an office established in the Apple Show
building, Is responsible for the statement that he sold more land as a
result of the showing of apples than
he sold during the entire year previous.
"This is a period of advertising,
but it must be done judiciously.
There is no use of advertising "snow
balls," when people are looking for
"Roses," and it is likewise poor business to advertise "Roses" w.hen you
can only deliver Icicles. Let the
world know what you have honestly
and fairly, and success will follow.
There Is nothing so seductive or so
potent as the attractive display of
natural products of any land or district. An ocular demonstration
where possible Is undoubtedly the
best form of publicity, but back It up
by genuine advertising.
Need of Enlightenment
"The Publicity Commissioner of
New Westminster Informed me that
people of the lower mainland were
strangely unaware of the wonderful
fertility even of the Fraser Valley;
and that strangers frequently asked
him at both the Vancouver and New
Westminster Exhibitions whether it
were possible for tbe products shown
to be grown in what is generally believed to be a portion of the "Barren
Rocky Mountain region," as they
called the eastern portion of British
Columbia. This spirit of enquiry and
desire to learn something of any
known locality is what we need to
cultivate—therefore I repeat that a
good exhibit is one of the bes publicity schemes possible particularly If
you have a representative who Is
thoroughly posted in the characteristics of the district and who is able
to create a desire for personal investigation in those he meets.
This form of advertising is, however confined to a comparatively few
to reach the masses particularly in
other lands. Correspondence, newspapers, pamphlets, etc., must be resorted to and perhaps tliis is the
greatest of all forms of advertising.
To get in touch with people who are
dissatisfied with their surroundings
and are, for personal reasons, seeking a change of locality is the object
of the Publicist. This is a work
which depends upon the constant activity and energetic enterprise of
your advertiser. Articles descriptive
of the territory to be exploited must
be carefully and intelligently prepared, and presented in an attractive
form and manner. Reasonable accuracy must form the basis of such
articles and a reputaion for absolute
truth must be established to ensure
permanent results. Every district has
some special advantage; it is your
duty to let the Investor, the home-
seeker, the merchant, the manufacturer and the mechanic know about
and try and have them investigate.
The greater the population (of the
right class of settler) that can be induced to settle in our midst the bet-
ber, not only for the particular locality but for the districts surrounding

NEW FLAG DESIGN
South Africa Adopts Emblem fir the
Dominion Just
Created.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Difficulties  Encountered   in   Making
Choice of a Standard For
the Union
Suggestions for a South African
flag wre submitted in response to the
recent invitation of "The State" for
competitive designs. Three of the
four judges-—Admiral Egerton, Captain Dumas and Mr. Roeworth—had
no difficulty In selecting a flag with
a plain blue field, exhibiting the
British Ensign ln the left upper corner, and, emblazoned across the field,
a device in the likeness of a comet,
with a four-pointed nucleus—symbolic of the four colonies—wih a
"tail" of orange, green, blue and
scarlet bands.
The judges based their award on
the fact that the design excelled the
others submitted in originality,
whilst it contained an equal recognition of all the provinces, and marked
the year of union indelibly.
On general principles, they considered that the deelga satisfied all
the requisites for a nationa fag, ln
that .it paced the Red, White and
Blue Ensign ln the top left-hand
corner of the flag; that the design
was placed on a blue ground (blue
and red being the only admissible
colors as the ground-work of such
a flag); and that the colors were;
properly based In white.
Admiral Egerton and Captain Du
mas sugegsted the substitution of a
red ground for the blue ground of
the design, and the adoption of white
and dark blue as the colors representing Colony and Natal, respectively, "as their badges are on grounds
of these colors." This suggested
emendation, however, did not affect
their award.
My. Herbert Baker dissented from
the award of his colleagues, on the
ground that the comet was an epher-
meral thing, and thus constituted a
bad emblem for a union which all
hope will be a lasting one. He would
have preferred the anchor as a symbol of the union.
"It connects us,' 'he said, ln his report, "with our sea origin; lt*s the
emblem of the oldest colony, from
which South Africa grew, and it Is
in itself a happy and beautiful symbol." As an alternative he suggested "a coat-of-arms quartering single
emblems of the various states, rather
than uniting the present arms of the
provinces, though he himself preferred a chain of four links, in which
a fifth link might be inserted upon
the inclusion of Rhodesia In the
union.
It was, however, pointed out by
Admiral Egerton and Captain Dumas
that the anchor on a flag denoted a
dockyard, and that this put Mr.
Baker's flrst suggestion out of court.
A coat-of-arms, again, was, in the
opinion of the other judges, difficult
and expensive to reproduce properly,
and the idea of a chain did not find
favor with them. The great difficulty
of all the competitors, as of the judges themselves, was to decide upon a
suitable emblem.
The Southern Cross had already
been used for the national flag of the
Commonwealth of Australia. The an-
chorvllle, the chain, the diamond,
and the plough were all used by various competitors. Others selected
typical birds or animals, such as the
ostrich, the elephant and the springbok.

PRINCT *trP»»* JOmiKAl,
TO PREVENT CRIME
Interesting Paper  on  Subject  by Dr.
Phelan, of Kingston,
Ont
Abnormal  Children  Should  be  Specially  Trained   to  Avoid
Development
Among the papers read before the
International Prison Congress at
Washington recently, furnishing material for discussion in the section
dealing with feeble1 minded children,
was one contributed by Dr. Daniel
Phelan, surgeon at the Dominion
penitentiary at Kingston. Dr. Phelan is a staunch advocate of the establishment of special institutions
for abnormal children who manifest
dangerous moral tendencies. "It is
well known," he says, "that crime in
young people is generally the evil
fruit of defective training and vicious
surorundings. When society, for its
own protection, undertakes to punish
crime, it has its Institutions and all
the machinery of the law at its disposal for so doing, but it would be
more Christian, if not a humanitarian act, to prevent the crime from
being perpetrated than to punish the
one guilty of it."
If, then, the primary object of society should be to prevent the commission of crime, the first step to be
taken is to efface, as much as possible, any predisposition to juvenile offense on the part of the young. To
attain this praiseworthy end the first
duty is to detect the shortcomings of
the child and to ascertain whether
he is merely mentally defective, or
possessed of evil or criminal tendencies, or both. For the harmless
defective child there are institutions
widely distributed, suited to the requirements of liis case, but wnen the
child displays certain criminal tendencies there must necesarily be
some means whereby such evil inclination can be corrected or even
transformed into better and saner
tendencies, if such is possible.
A Separate Institution
The prison is not the place, as It
is an institution for those who are
responsible for their actions in the
eyes of the law, and where they are
confined for a definite or an indefinite period. In the reformatory Institution such a child would be out
of place, since his limited development would prevent him from participating in the educational benefits
of that establishment. Then, take
the ordinary institution for Ihe feeble minded, it would not. be right or
proper to introduce into its classes
one afflicted with evil or criminal
tendencies. What, then, is society
going to do with this child of abnormal characteristics? Were he a
criminal the prison might suit him;
were he only weak minded the asylum for such children might suffice;
were he strong minded and of evil
inclination Ihe reformatory might be
liis place; but he is neither or any of
these, and yet. is capable of becoming a member of one of these classes.
What are we to do witli him and
how are we to cultivate his youth so
that his criminal tendencies may be
suppressed, and yet those not so afflicted may escape being contaminated by his presence? There can be
but one answer to this important
question: by the establishment of
special institutions for the care and
training of such subjects, it is in
childhood that the seed of evil is
sown, and if bad moral tendencies
are manifested in this defective class
the institutions here recommended
iftiould be set apart tlo correct all
undesirable qualities of body and
mind, if possible.
"If society Is to be protected from
the crimes of a perverse generation,
is suffices not to punish the guilty,
but means must be taken to prevent
the Innocent from becoming guilty.
When, therefore, evil or criminal tendencies accompany backward development, when acts which come under the criminal code are the result
of abnormal conditions in the child,
some serious steps must be taken to
check the growth of this menace to
society."
Xo Arbitrary Curriculum
Dr. Phelan Is strongly of opinion
that such institutions as he advocates
should be distinct and separate from
all other industrial and reformatory
schools and correctional establishments of every kind. There should
be no regular or arbitrary curriculum, as we have In all existing Institutions, both Industrial and correctional. No two children of the class
under consideration have the same
aptitudes, tendencies and proclivities.
The rule that would correspond to
the case of one child might be entirely at variance with the requirements of the other, and yet both
children may belong to the same
category of abnormal and evil-inclined youths.    Each  one could  be af
forded every possible opportunity of
training along whatever line seems
best adapted to his mental condition.
A child, too, with a feeble will,
orally led into evil habits, requires
the supervision of efficient attendants. Left to himself in any ordinary
institution, without special requirements as outlined, he would soon
succumb and rapidly drift into criminal habits. It follows clearly that,
ln order to save this child from himself and society from what ho might
become he must be placed amidst
surroundings and associations that
hold out no temptations. His .better
tastes and inclinations must be cultivated and made to expand and grow
vigorous in the inverse ratio of the
original evil tendencies with which
his life was menaced. To attain this
object there would needs be what we
might call a special method for each
special case, as no two cases are
alike, any more than any two sane
individuals are alike. Naturally,
this demands an Institution specially
equipped for the grand work, absolutely distinct from all others.
LOSSES IN  TIMBER
North
Western Part of United States
Suffered Heavily From
Fires.
Montana  and  Idaho Suffered to the
Extent of About Six Billion
Hoard Feet
A rough estimate of the Are loss
upon the national forests in Montana
and northern Idaho, upon which the
forest officers of the United States
department of agriculture have been
engaged since the fires were put out,
puts the total amount of timber killed or destroyed in this one district
at over 6,000,000,000 board feet,
while the area burned over is put at
over 1,250,000 acres.
The heaviest losses were in two
Idaho forests, the Couer d'Alene,
where over 3,000,000,000 board feet
of timber is reported killed or destroyed and over 450,000 acres burned over, and the Clearwater, where
1,000,000,000 feet of timber was killed or destroyed, and 300,000 acres
burned over. On the Helena national
forest, in Montana, the loss In timber
is believed to have been 500,000,000
feet, on the Cabinet forest 400,000,-
000, and on the Lolo forest 300,000,-
000.
A large part of the losses on the
Coeur d'Alene, Clearwater and Lolo
were due to what became practically
one great fire. The burn is shown on
the forest service maps as extending
in a northwesterly and southeasterly
direction from nortli of Wallace, Idaho, to a point some thirty miles
southwest of Missoula, Mont., or
nearly 100 miles. At its widest point
tliis burn has a width of about forty
miles, but its shape is very irregular.
It was really a union of a number
of separate fires, driven to fury by
the fierce hurrican of August 26. To
the west of the Idaho-Montana
boundary in tho region of this fire
lies a very inaccessible mountainous
country, into which, on account of
the absence of trails and forage, it
was almost impossible for forces of
fire fighters to penetrate. When the
hurricane arose it drove the fires upon the parties which were hewing
a way towards them, forced these
parties to seek refuge wherever It
could be found, and swept down upon
the forests where the fires were up
to that lime generally well in hand.
The extensive losses are ascribed to
the combination of hurricane and
lack of means to get to the fires and
put them out before the storm came.
There will be an enormous quantity of fire-killed timber, both on the
national forests and on private lands,
to be disposed of as soon as possible
since if not marketed quickly It will
not be worth cutting at all. The department of agriculture will push
vigorously lo dispose of Ibis fire-killed timber. As with all other national
forest timber, It will be sold on the
slump lo millmen who will lumber
Ihe land, paying a set price per thousand board feet for the timber, and
conforming to whatever regulations
are stipulated in the interest of the
forest. Pending the disposal of this
fire-killed timber, future sales of
green timber from the national forests which were badly burned last
summer will probably be greatly restricted,  if  not  entirely  suspended.

CANADIAN FORESTS
From each object of nature and of
life, there goes a path towards God.
The Need of Reforestation in the Country is Advocated by
Authority.
The   Example   of   Germany   in   the
Matter is Held up Before
Citizens
The Financial Post has an interesting two-column article on the
great Canadian forests and the investment value of the same. The article points out that, unlike mining,
the productivity of timber is determinable in advance. The article says
in part:—
The ravages of Are and industry
while rapidly demolishing the great
Canadian forests, as yet have left
enough to make logging and lumbering one of our most important Industries. The great and growing demands of the western farmers, the
increasing uses of concrete—entailing large quantities of lumber for
false work, etc.—and the demands
from abroad have all resulted in
making wealthy those fortunate
enough to have been possessed of
accessible limits and the capital
necessary to operate them. In the
future, too, the growing demand and
the decreasing stock makes it altogether probable that purchasers of
timber land made now at reasonable
prices, will result in substantial profits before many years are past.
Of recent years the government
have been spending large sums yearly on fire prevention, and the fact
that most owners of lumber properties have their holdings well spread
geographically, reduces the proportionate risk. This fire risk, which
is usually figured at about 1% per
cent if timber limits have been chosen with disdom and financed with
discretion, is the only one to deter
any one with the money and experience necessary to the profitable exploitation of timber properties.
Clifford Pinchot, ex-U.S. government chief forester, a year or two
ago, estimated that, "In twenty
years the timber supply of the United
States on government reserves and
private holdings at the present rate
of cutting will be cleared, although
it is possible that the growth of that
period may protract the arrival of
the famine another five years." Not
much mode need be said with respect to appreciation. The demand
is increasing every year in Canada.
The standing timber of British Columbia is estimated at 300 billion
feet. The yearly requirements of
the States is estimated at 100 billion feet. The value of that timber
in a few years' time, if these estimates and forecasts are even remotely accurate, is certain to enhance very largely In value.
There is a feature of timbering
which has as yet received but scant
attention in Canada, and that is for-
estation. Forestation and reforestation have been practiced for years In
Germany. In that country we have
the system of municipal ownership
inking the attitude that where by the
expenditure of a relatively small sum
a vast return may be made, in the future, and which the remoteness of
the return, in point of time renders
it impossible to engage private capital, the municipality has almost a
moral obligation to enter the field.
In this way many German cities have
their municipal forest bringing in
substantial dividends. Tliis money
was expended years ago and now the
reforesting system whereby a young
tree must be planted for every one
cut renders the forests, humanly
speaking, perpetual. None but a municipality or government whose existence is unlimited by time could
wiait the necessary years to get a
return on their investment.
This has been done in Ontnrio by
private means, and the trees are
flourishing in soil that made agriculture economically impossible. The
older timber companies, had they
considered that fact that our timber
lands were not Inexhaustible, in the
past could have planted new stock
which by this time would be nearly
mature.

THE SCOTT ACT
Tiie electorate of this city, in common with Chilliwack, is to be called
upon in about a month's lime lo decide the question whether in the
administration of the liquor problem
the Canada Temperance Act, commonly known as the Scott Act, shall
be in force or the present license system shall continue. Ii is safe to say
that the subject will receive careful
consideration from the citizens of
Prince Rupert. It is a knotty question that has to be decided and one
that requires more than a casual examination.
The Scott Act is a local option
measure but not a local option act as
Is commonly accepted at present. The
term Local Option measures are for
tiie most part at present confined to
provincial acts which grant municipalities the power to pass the necessary measure to forbid the sale of
intoxicants, giving at the same time
the machinery for the proper enforcement of the act. The Scott Act
is a Dominion measure and as such
the machinery for its enforcement
is not provided by the same authority
as enacted the law. The provisions
must be enforced by the means and
officers provided by the provincial
legislature, or relegated to the municipality by tne legislature.
This very fact has been one of the
greatest weaknesses of the Scott Act.
In the other provinces where it was
tried for many years and where tho
sentiment with respect to the use of
liquor is considerably more in favor
of total abstinence, this fact rendered
the Act unpopular. While the measure theoretically provided for a very
strict observance of prohibitory principles, the machinery was not forthcoming for the enforcement. The result has been that there has been a
decided revulsion against the measure in many of the eastern provinces
and in favor of what in its restricted
sense is known as a local option law
passed by the legislature of the province and provided with the necessary
officials and machinery to see that
it. is enforced.
One feature that appears to have
created a sentiment in favor of the
Scott Act in Prince Rupert seems to
be the fact that the license law has
not been as well enforced as It might
have been. While from a superficial
examination of the situation this
might, create some sentiment In favor
of it, a little deeper investigation
will undoubtedly show that this
would be an argument against the
Scott Act.
The Scott. Act is notoriously weak
unless forcibly put in operation. The
police authorities of the city will be
charged with that duty acting under
the Police Commissioners. In this
province the Police Commissioners
exercise considerable influence with
respect, to certain laws. The police
force takes its instructions from the
Commissioners as a general thing,
and are vigilant or lax with respect
to the liquor laws, the social evil and
along other lines according to the
wishes of the commissioners. If the
license laws are not being enforced
strictly, the Police Commissioners
are quite directly responsible for It.
If the Scott Act were in force the
same Commisisoners would have to
devise ways for enforcing that law.
Is il to be supposed that Ihe Scott
Act, woqld be made a terror lo the
violators of (lie measure if Ihe present law is noi enforced?
II would surely appear easier for
the police authorities t:i see t at the
Intent of the law is not violated in
the i;is.- tjf license regulations when
the Inducement tc sell without license is nut strong than to lake steps
to avoid the sal,, of liquor when
there are no licensed places as under the Scott Act. Under a license
system the places for the sale of liquor are known and are open. So
few care to patronize illicit selling
places that these latter become scarce
Indeed. Under the Scott Act the
sales would all be in what are known
as "blind-pigs."
The Provincial Government agreed
with the prohibition party in the
province to submit to the electorate
the question of whether a Local Option law was desired or not at the
time of the last general election'. The
decision of the province was against
Local Option. Although In no wise
bound to do so, the Attorney-General
Introduced at I ho next session of the
legislature . measure amending the
license l.iws ''nd making much more
stringent the regulations relative to
the sale of liquor. That law was
pronounced by Dr. Spencer, the organizer for the temperance section
of the community, as a very advanced step. A strict enforcement of that
law, it is acknowledged, would go
very far towards overcoming the
evils of the liquor traffic. There
lias been an outcry against the way
the law has been enforced here
which prompts a suspicion that the
Police Commisisoners have been lax
in their duties.
In a city like Prince Rupert It is
not to be expected that there can be
a very large police force carried.
This will work against the enforcement of the Scott Act which has always been found to require very
stringent supervision and a large
force of special officers to ensure
anything  like  efficient  enforcement.
In the case of the license law a
revenue is produced for the city
which can be utilized In the enforcement of the Act. There Is no such
funds available under the oilier
measure.
The Scott Act in theory Is a stringent measure. To make it such in
practice will call for very strict regulations on the part of the local police
authorities. Will this be provided
if the Act passes is a question that
the electors must decide for themselves before taking the step they
are being asked to take In passing
the Scott Act.
The present law forbids the sale
of liquor to a drunken man, or to a
man who is a habitual drunkard.
Convictions have been secured elsewhere in the province for violation of
these rules. It can be done in Prince
Rupert. It is a notorious fact that
liquor laws of all kinds have to be
stringently enforced in order to have
anything like a close observance of
them. Hotel proprietors when not
themselves inclined to disobey the
law are often the victims of over-
zealous bartenders who seem prone
to forget the rules. With a race
which In the matter of intoxicants
is inclined to run to the excesses
which the people of the Anglo-
Saxon blood will do, restrictive
laws are required. Were the laws
made, fully observed by the mere enactment of them, there would be no
question as to the restriction force
of the Scott Act. It would in common with nearly every measure aiming at a suppression of the abuse of
liquor bring about a very happy condition of affairs from the standpoint
of the temperance reformer. But
such is not the case. These laws
have to be enforced and require constant supervision.
Those who are alive to the need
of educating along the line of creating a strong public sentiment in
favor of temperance, will probably
think twice before deciding finally
on 'this question. The non-enforcement of the Scott Act which is prohibitory in its character, is calculated to create a strong antipathy to
that form of legislation and create
the opposite extreme. There are
many elements that enter into this
question that will at once appeal to
citizens as rendering it difficult and
even impossible to carry out this law
with the strictness that it should be
done to be at all effective. With all
these in view, a large floating population, wholesale houses permitted,
the giving of liquor not illegal, the
right to carry liquor for private use,
the many opportunities to evade the
closest guard that can be kept and
many other features that present
themselves to the mind and which
make it exceedingly difficult to enforce the law, citizens should carefully consider before they make a
change from what Is regarded as a
very stringent license law to the
Scott Act with the danger of non-
enforcement.
A NAVAL CENTRE
The arrival of the Canadian training ship Rainbow at Esquimau directs attention to the part which the
Canadian navy is to play on this
const. Tho Rainbow, it was announced some time ago, would be engaged
a part of the time as a fishery protect ion cruiser in these waters. The
first cruise in tliis capacity will be
made early in the new year when
Prince Rupert will be visited by the
warship.
While Esquimalt will undoubtedly
be the general headquarters for the
vessel, there Is no reason why a secondary headquarters should not be
established here. The vessel will be
engaged a considerable part of her
time off this harbor in an effort to
prevent poaching in the waters which
constitute the great fishing grounds
of the Pacific coast. The G. T. P.
floating dock, which Is to be guaranteed by the Dominion Government,
will be available for Canadian Government ships so that Prince Rupert
should be a port of frequent call for
the cruiser.
This being the fact and the need
of further docking facilities for warships and merchantmen here should
prompt the Dominion Government to
take immediate steps to provide
means for protecting the entrance to
this harbor and to the dry docks
that must be provided. The putting
in of fortifications is a slow proceeding. It is essential that an early
start should be made to afford that
protection to the dockage to be provided here which might play an Important part in the defence of the
Empire.
CONSBRVATn ES .MEET
The gathering at tbe annual meeting of the Conservative Associalion
on Tuesday evening was sufficient to
show that that body Is in a healthy
condition. In the selection of an
executive for the ensuing year there
seemed to be a general feeling In
favor of retaining a good proportion
of the old members of that body and
at the same time introducing new
mebers. The object was carried out
very completely. The president, Mr.
Kirkpatrick, is to be congratulated
upon the hold he has upon the Association.
 o	
UNION   PROPOSED
East Africa and Uganda Nay Be Joined
Under One British
Dominion.
Sir Percy Girounrd is   Now   on  His
Way to London to Go Into the
Whole Question
Sir Percy Girouard, governor of
the East Africa Protectorate, is on
his way home to discuss with the
home authorities the details of a
scheme which he has prepared for
the amalgamation of the East Africa
Protectorate and Uganda. Sir Percy
Girouard considers that the administration of both Protectorates might
be much more efficiently and economically carried on under one administration, particularly in regard
to railways.
He is also convinced that the land
laws of the East Africa Protectorate
require to be completely overhauled,
inasmuch as the development of the
country Is being seriously impeded
by the system of land grants which
has been in operation for some years.
These grants, it would appear, were
in many cases made without proper
preliminary surveys of the country
having been made, and the result In
most cases has been that when the
concessionaries have started development work they have found themselves confronted with claims by people to whom rights over the lands
had already been granted. Consequently, operations on many estates
have been suspended pending the determination of all such rights and the
promulgation of new land regulations.
THE NEW DOMINION
Greenwood  Smelter is Treating Ore
From Recently Acquired Mine
Operation of the properties of the
New Dominion 'Copper Co., which
was begun recently at the Rawhide
mine, is under the same management as that of the British Columbia Copper Company. Officers of the
two companies are now practically
the same, and J. E. McAllister is
general manager-for both. Last year
the British Columbia acquired 53
per cent of the stock of the New Dominion company by exchanging 88,-
709 shares of its stock and $11,593
for 132,556 shares nf the New Dominion stock.
About 2,500 tons of ore a week
from the New Dominion Mines Is
being treated at the Greenwood smelter of the British Columbia Co. under a contract covering 25,000 tons.
Officers say thai another contracl on
the same terms covering 25,000 more
will probably be made when Ibis one
expires, but il is not known whal
arrangements will he made after
that.
It is not known yet whether a
merger of the two companies will be
considered or not. aVlue of the New
Dominion ores will be the governing
factor In whatever permanent arrangements are made, and that cannot be ascertained until all the poor
ore left loose in the mines by the
former management is removed. By
the time 50,000 tons have been
treated, however, the ore bodies will
have been reached and the value of
the New Dominion ore determined. If
a consolidation is arranged, the Interests of the minority stockholders
of the New Dominion Co. will have
to be considered.

have placed an order for a duplicate
of the new steamer Princess Adelaide
now on her way to these waters, and
recently reported at Montevideo. It
is expected that the new boat will be
on the roast early next summer,
while the Adelaide is expected at
Victoria about December 10. She
was eonslrueted in Seotland by the
Fnlrchild Shipbuilding company, who
will begin work as soon as possible
on the sister ship just ordered.
Early  in  the  new  year,  the  Ade-|
lalrte will lie placed nn tha rente formerly covered by Ihe Charmer, which
in ilie meantime "ill lie temporarily
served by Ihe Princess Royal.    Com-1
mencing   Nov.   20   she   will   replace (
the Charmer on  Ihe Vancouver-Victoria service.    The Charmer will be
withdrawn   from   the   service     and
practically reconstructed.    New boilers will be installed, and she wi'l be
equipped for special work in assits-
ing the smaller boats of the fleet.
The Princess Adelaide Is a twin-
screw steamer, very much resembling
the Princess Victoria and the Princess Charlotte, but not quite so
speedy. She Is 289 feet long, with a
beam of 46 feet, and a depth of 17
feet. There are 113 staterooms fitted with double lower berths and
single upper berths, an arrangement
which Is peculiar to the Canadian
Pacific boats and very popular with
the travelling public.

MAItlNE  NOTES
The Prince Rupert left on time
last night with a full list of passengers for the south. Owing to the
Christmas season close at hand many
people are leaving the city to spend
the holidays In the south.
The C.P.R. barge Will W. Case has
finished discharging the coal for
Rogers & Black, and has left the
wharf and gone to Seal Cove. She
will leave for the soutii as soon as
it is convenient for the tug to come

By the way, why is a French salad
so good? Because the ingredients are
better than ours? Not at all, simply
because care is taken that each leaf
is scrupulously clean, dry as well as
tender. It is the drop of water on
the Imperfectly dried leaf that makes
a salad limp and tasteless—and the
foreign housewife pursues the drop
of water that spoils her salad as
relentlessly as she does the bugs and
the slugs.
Did you ever hear of an American
cook utilizing the waters in which
vegetables have been boiled—a
French woman puts these into her
soup pot—an American in disdain,
throws the whole down the sink and
the waste pipe sucks up the valuable
salts that go to the making of brawn
and muscle. Did you ever try the
German way of boiling the succulent
pods from which the tender pea has
just been shelled, and in the rich
juice thus extracted boil your peas?
Until you have eaten tnem in this
way don't imagine you know anything about the flavor of green peas
as nature intended them, and as you
value your life don't throw away a
droii of tnat precious water. Make
soup of it, gravy, anything, but don't
waste it. Once I had a French woman for a neighbor. To see the
daughter of France make a "ragout
de mouton," otherwise mutton stew,
was an inspiration. As daintily and
tenderly as a woman handles her
babe she went about her preparations for that stew. Even her way
of putting on her snowy apron, turning her sleeves back over her plump,
capable arms, and rolling with the
most caressing of finger-tips the bits
of pink meat in her powdery flour
was beautifully suggestive, and just
to hear her talk of the aroma of this
and the bongriet of that, and the
"fines nerbes," and the bay leaf and
the laurel and the clove and the
pinch of nutmeg, and even the tiniest
touch of garlic was appetizing. Every
detail of that stew was a matter of
loving consideration. Each stage of
Its progress was tenderly followed,
lucre was no haphazard dumping of
Ingredients, no hit or miss flavorings, each proportion had its err>rt
time and place as a concomitant. To
bring OUl tha characteristic of the
Other, even Ihe salt was put In with
a view In seasoning the gravy without Injuring the tenderness of the
meat. And then, at last, with what
affectionate skill was added that
master stroke of just a dash of vinegar—not ordinary vinegar, no such
poison ever went Into her ragouts—
madame declared in her spirited
French. The only vinegar she considered fit to properly bring out the
flavor of a ragout was made of
white grapes, ripened In a tropical
sun, and flavored \ with a sprig of
tarragon. And the perfume of that
ragout, as it was poured, hot and
steaming on the generous squares of
crisp toast, and the taste, and the
glorious color! Like gold on an
autumn leaf, touched by the vinegar
she considered to bring out the sun,
and    the    delectable creamlness. No
more a common stew was it than a
cabbage is,a garden rose. And all
because madame knew the art of
little things.

GOOD CHOICE OF CITY
Fishing Industry Will   Re   One   of
Greatest in the World
Representatives of the Swanson

at the Hotel Vancouver last night,
among them being Mr. T. MacKarell,
Mr. Swanson himself and Mr. J. W.
Robson, who is more or less intimately connected with several of the
large shipping interests of the two
northern counties of Durham and
Northumberland in England, says the
News-Advertiser.
Mr. MacKarell expressed himself
as deeply impressed with the great
future which was inevitably the destiny of the province.
Mr. MacKarell is, however, of tlG
opinion that the great industry of
the future for this part of the wot Id
will be found to be that of fishing,
and he said that this alone would
justify the selection of Prince Rupert as the terminus of its lines by
tiie Grand Trunk Pacific. .Modern
cold storage facilities would mean

STILL MISSING
Vancouver.—Jean Dumas, the
Frenchman who disappeared on the
night that Louis Tanqueray died
from strychnine poisoning, is still
missing! The police officers, who
have the search for him in hand, are
now convinced that he is alive and,
they believe, in Vancouver. One of
the detectives who is working on the
case said that it was the most difficult problem he has ever had tn
solve. No one seems to know anything about be missing man. The
officer was inclined to think that the
two Frenchmen, Etnile Dalodiene
and Henri Cochet, are not telling all
they know. It seems to some of the
police officers that there is a secret
that the men know which would explain why the wine was poisoned.
Chief Chamberlin observed that he
understood that poisoning by means
of wine was rather a common crinle
In France and Italy. The house,
1482 Eighth avenue, where the men
lived, has been searched a number of
tims but nothing has been found
which casts any further radiance on
the darkness In which the death of
Tanqueray is enveloped. Only the
appearance of Dumas could do that,
say the police.
ther than that the accused had previously borne a good reputation in
the government service, and had
been tempted to do as he had by
family needs, as he had a mother and
a blind sister to support.
Judge Mclnnes, while he was willing to consider the representations
made to him, could not altogether
overlook the seriousness of the offence, but htought the ends of justice would be served with half a
year's Imprisonment.
Woollacott was convicted of keeping for his own use, revenue tax and
fines which were given into his care
to turn into the government while
he was provincial constable at Alert
Hay.
EXTENSIVE  PURCHASES
Victoria.—The Driard Hotel property and the Victoria Theatre block
have been purchased by the firm of
David Spencer Ltd., and one of the
largest sal.es of real estate in the
history of Victoria was thereby
brought to a successful consummation. Tiie consideration for the acquisition of these blocks was $370,-
000, which with the sum paid Henry
Young & Co. for the Government
street frontage known as the White-
house site, brings up the purchases
of David Spencer Ltd. to $470,000
within  the  last  week.
The block just acquired by this
enterprising firm has a frontage of
120 feet on Douglas street, 235 feet
on View street, and 121 feet on
Broad street and is thus in the very
heart of the business section of the
city.
With the opening of View street
through from Broad to Government
the big departmental store will have
the finest business property in the
city of Victoria. Pending the negotiations for the opening up of the street
which is now certain to be carried
oul, Ihe mayor has instructed the
building inspector, to refuse permits
for building on the property affected.
It is understood that the firm will
proceed with the erection of a series
of business blocks unrivalled In the
west.
Possession of the hotel promises
will be granted the firm with the exception of the bar. Under an arrangement entered Into by the former owners to the sale, the hotel license and stock of liquors have been
sold to the Westholme Hotel Co. For
the three or four months which will
elapse before they can enter their
new premises on Government street,
tii Westholme Hotel Company will
occupy Ihe present Driard bar.
FISHERY DIES
Victoria.—The provincial government has received from the Dominion fisheries department $40,000, being arrears of dues for fishing licenses on the Fraser river from 1901
to  1907.
Tite payment of this money shows
how the Dominion government regards tiie question of who Is entitled
to collect license fees from fishermen.
Until 1907 these license fees were
collected by the Dominion but In that
year the province started collecting
them under the fisheries act. The
$46,000 Is the amounl collected by
the Unminlon prior to tbat date, and
now acknowledged to belong lo the
province.
SIN   MONTHS. SENTENCE
Vancouver. — Former Provlncltl
Constable Woolacott, of Alert Bay,
was sentenced by Judge Mclnnes
yesterday morning to six monlhs' imprisonment for embezzling government funds. There were three charges against Woollacott nf converting
to liis own use the sum of $100 and
two of $50 each, He pleaded guilty
about, a month ago, but owing to the
illness of his counsel, sentence was
deferred.
Yesterday Mr. J. II. MacGill appeared on Ills behalf and asked for
leniency as restoration of all of the
stolen money would be made, and
had been partly made already.    Fur-
FOKT GEORGE TOWNSITE
Victoria.—Plans have been filed
with the provincial government locating the station grounds of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway on the
Indian reservation at Fort George,
adjoining the Fort George townsite.
Tliis seems to clear up any uncertainty regarding the location of the
railway station. The B. C. & Alaska
railway survey traverses the Fort
George townsite, and station grounds
for the railway have been reserved
on the townsite.
ing arranged for next month. Theje

Cloverdale, South Surrey, Port Mann
and one otMar point yet to( be announced.
MURDER AT FORT
Victoria.—When about to place
Gunner Ratcliffe of No. 5 company,
R. C. G. A., under arrest for breach
of discipline, Corporal John Bowlan,
in charge of the squad of four men
at Macaulay Point was shot and killed by Ratcliffe. The murderer afterward killed himself, when his ammunition was almost expended, after standing at bay against an armed party of thirty-five men under
Captain Lindsay, which fired about
thirty rounds. Several narrow escapes were had by tho party from
Ihe barracks which surrounded him,
bullets whistling dangerously near
in Sergl. Majors Clements and Farley and Sergt. Elton. The murderer
left a confession written on a small
piece of notepaper at the gate of the
fortress, where it was found after
his death. This read: "I, Chas. Ratcliffe, shot and killed Corp. Bowlan
for a good reason. Down and out
myself.—'C. Ratcliffe."

IRRIGATION SCHEME
Vernon.'—Last week water flowed
freely through the big siphon across
the head of Swan Lake on the White
Valley Irrigation Company's system
This marks the successful completion of another section of this undertaking, the water now flowing
through the big pipe at the rate of
000 cubic feet per minute coming to
rest in Goose Lake. This lake forms
a storage reservoir for the west side
of the valley, and has a capacity of
400 acre feet. The work now remaining to be done to complete the
Grey canal to its outlet at Okanagan
Landing is small and comprises no
difficult or unusual features. As soon
as the land is required for settlement
the water will be available.
The large siphon just so successfully installed is eleven thousand feet
long, twenty-two inches in diameter,
and for several thousand feet of its
length sustains a pressure when
working of 200 pounds to the square
inch. These three features taken together constitute a record for wooden pipe.
From this large pipe extends a net
work of distributaries over the lands
of the Land and Agricultural Company of Canada. A block of these
Iands has been subdivided into lots
ranging in size from five acres to
fifteen acres, and each lot is served
by a pressure pipe for its irrigation.
When this installation is completed,
it, will be one of the most perfect
irrigation systems to be found on the
continent. The White Valley Irrigation Company is doing this work for
the owners, and Mr. J. G. Knight
is in charge, under Mr. E. B. Knight,
the company superintendent. The
200-acre orchard of the Belgian Orchard Syndicate, adjoining the city
on the north, is also being provided
with a complete pipe s-ystem, there
being over 300 hydrants used In distributing the water to the three rows.
CONSERVATIVE CLUB
Vancouver.—The establishment of
a permanent headquarters for the
Conservatives in Vancouver in a ten-
story block to be erected on the
northwest corner of Seymour and
Dunsmuir streets, is the proposition
which is before the Vancouver Conservative Club. The contemplated
expenditure in connection with the
purchase of a site and the erection
of a building is in the neighborhood
of $450,000.
An option has been secured on the
property by the club building committee, which has been working on
the project for some weeks past, and
the tentative plans are now in course
of preparation.
These plans show a handsome
brick building, ten stories In height,
with a facade doing credit to any
structure of its kind in the country.
The price set for the site, which
measures 75 by 120 feet, is $150,000,
and the estimated cost of the building will bring the outlay up by another $300,000, making the total expenditure close on $500,000. The
only building at present on the property is an old blacksmith's shop.
In case the Conservative Club goes
ahead with the venture it is possible
that several of the floors will be rented out as bachelor apartments. The
location is considered a very desirable one, being close to Granville
street, and als) diagcnally across
from the proposed new Klaw ,4
Erlanger tluure.

FISH CORPORATION
Mackenzie ft Nun are Floating Their
Big Company in
London.
New Whating Station   to   be   Built
This  Winter—Halibut Trade
to be Entered
Capitalized at $2,500,000 the Canadian Northern Pacific Fisheries
Company Is now being floated in
England with the object of carrying
out extensive fishery operations In
the waters of British Columbia. The
company is controlled by Messrs.
Mackenzie and Munn of the Cana-
d au Northern Railway company,
who through their representatives,
Mr. A. D. McRae and Colonel A. D.
Davidson recently purchased the
entire holdings of the Pacific Whaling Company at a cost of $1,000,000.
The latter company Is now in process
of reorganization, as far as an extension of operations is concerned, the
considerable Increase in capital being
necessary o enable the concern to
exploit several branches ot the fishery Industry.
Chief among the schemes of extension planned is tha establishment of
a new whaling station In Northern
British Columbia waters. The site
for this Is now being acavired and
the station will be built during the
present winter and ready for operation by next spring. The station trill
bo constructed of corrugated iron,
eimilar ln detail to the one at Kyu-
<quot. It will cost In the neighborhood of $120,000, and will be fitted
out In the most approved up-to-date
fashion.
To hunt for Whales from this new
fetation and the four others already
established on the British Columbia
coast, five new steam whalers have
been ordered from Christiana, Nor
way. Three of these are now ready
and will sail for Victoria within the
next few days. The other two are In
process of construction and all five
will ha • reached this coast in time
for the spring season. The names of
these vessels are, as far as is known
"unique in the annals of marine history, the management of the com-
J my having christened them respectively, Black. White, Green, Brown
and Red. All these whalers are
equipped with me latest devices of
the whaling industry, and are provld
ed with noiseless steam steering
gear.
Yet another development in con
uection with the operation of the
new fishery company will be the es
tablishment of glue plants at each
of the whaling stations. Next sum'
mer vessels especially equipped for
engaging in the halibut industry,
will be brought to the Coast, and this
branch of the fisheries Industry will
be exploited by Canadians on a large
scale. To treat the halibut when
brought to the stations by the fishing
boats cold storage plants will be established, and the"t will be ready to
play their part in the industry as
soon as the halibut fishing is commenced by the Canadian Northern
Pacific Fisheries Company.
Numerous other extension schemes
are in contemplation Including the
exploiting of shark fisheries, the installing of refineries and such other
enterprises, wihich will not aline g 'e
employment to large numbers of fishermen, but will moreover prove the
first direct attempt of Canadians lo
take exteuslve advantage of one of
the greatest resources of the mest
westerly province in the Dominion
The planning of this large fishery enterprise contemporaneously witn the
advent of the Canadian na' v to these
shores sh r..ld go far toward fulfilling
th schemo which His Excelbn'y
Earl Grey Is so enthusiastic about,
namely the establishment of a race
of fishermen on the Pacific Cm. '

ARE .SEEKING LAND
Chinamen are Anxious to Acquire Property Near Chilliwack.
j   SPORTS
Owners Refuse to Part With Their
Holdings to Orientals at
Any Price
The Chinamen of Chilliwack district are making determined efforts
to acquire realty holdings and have
been offering high prices for tracts
conveniently located and otherwise
suitable for a new Chinatown. For
several years past the Oriental colony
has had its joss house, meeting place
and business district in several old
dilapidated shacks on Young street,
near the courthouse, but since the
ownership of that property has passed into the hands of a Vancouver
syndicate of their own countrymen
the rents have materially advanced.
There Is a probability, however
that the buildings will soon be destroyed, as a result of a bylaw passed by the council some time ago
wllien the fire limits were extended
The Chinese holdings in this city
are too small to accommodate tho
colony, and several attempts have
been made to buy large tracts of
acreage on the outskirts of the town
which so far have failed because of
the disinclination of the owners to
sell to the ye.llaw men even at a
higher price than can reasonably be
expected from others. Messrs. Caw-
ley & Cruikshank, who own a tract
of 386 acres about three and a half
miles from town, near the Chilliwack
mountain, Were offered $195 an acre
for the entire tract by a syndicate of
local Chinamen. Although the price
was a good one the offer Was refused, and a few days later the firm
was approached by a white man from
Vancouver, who offered to buy the
property at $210 an acre and who, as
an evidence of good faith, produced
$20,000 In cash for the first payment. The firm immediately set
about making investigations and dis
covered that the white man was representing the same Chinamen whe
had made the first offer.
Another local men signed a contract for the sale of a portion of his
farm, from which the name of the
vendee was omitted. When the next
payment came due he discovered
that the purchasers were several Hindus, who had bought through a coast
agent and they demanded either the
land or $500 for the surrender of
their contract. Rather than have the
dusky gentlemen as next-door neigh-!
bors the farmer elected to part with
00.    None of the local real estate
men  will knowingly sell  land  to a
Chinaman, knowing that by so doing
tiie vaue of the adjacent land is de-
reclated,

ATTRACTING   SETTLERS
Annual   Report   of Postmaster-General Issued
Nelson  District Takes  Steps  to Ensure Large  Influx
The annual report of the postmaster general of Canada, which inns
been issued, shows that the estimated increase in the number of It 'firs
and postcards carried in the I anadlan mails during the fiscal year was
45,705,000, which is a ten per cent
increase over 1909.
Owing to the growrth of the service
expenditure has increased by $622.95
compared witli 1909, but in spite of
that fact, there was a surplus service of $743,210, and during the
year ther was an Increase of 1,121
miles In extent of the system over
which mails are carried by rallwa.'.
While the Increase on railway, water
and land routes was greater by
1,475,505   miles.     Letter-carrier  de-
At a public meeting in the city
of Nelson it was resolved to adopt
a.i advanced and energetic policy to
attract settlers to the Kootenay. The
scheme entails an annual expenditure
of $15,000, and the opening of an
office in England with a representative to carry on a personal campaign with prospective settlers and
inv otors. A sum of $5,000 is to be
raised by business men of Nelson
and the city at large. This Is to be
supplemented by real estate men of
the city and West Kootenay, maintaining a London agency at not less
than $5,000. It Is believed that
there will be no difficulty in raising the required sum and that tha
effect, on the prosperity and growth
of Nelson and Kootenay will be
great.
SEAWANHAKA CUP
Although nothing definite has as
let been decided about a challenga
for the Seawanhaka cup next year, it
is possible that the Royal St. Lawrence Yacht club will try to wrest
the trophy from the Manchester
Yacht club.
While badly defeated In the last
series of races, the Canadians are
still confident that they can re-capture the famous cup.
The Royal St. Lawrence club members think that the time allowed for
them to tune up the St. Lawrence before the big races was to short, and
therefore the men were not able to
handle the boat, as well, perhaps, as
they should  have done.
GIRL'S   WONDERFUL   SWIMMING
Florence Trusler, an eighteen-year
old English girl, challenges any woman in the world to a ong distance
swim. She is an amateur with no
desire to join the professional ranks.
She has some wonderful performances to her credit. On October 1st
at the Darlington Corporation baths,
Miss Trusler swam twelve miles In
nine hours, twenty minutes, which
was a marvelous feat for a girl of
her years. The timing was done by
officials of the Northumberland and
Durham. Next season Miss Trusler is
going after the fifty-mile record held,
by Montague Holbein.
ATHLETE AS PREACHER
Fred C. Thomps6n, the Los Aii^
geles athlete, who defeated Jack
Glllis, the well known Vancouver
track and field star, for the world's
all-round championship this year,
has decided to become a preacher,
and nas made the statement that he
is through with athletics. It Is said
that some time ago Thompson, who
Is now at LoS Angeles, had signed
a contract to become a physical director of the Y. M. C. A., but he applied to be released, saying that he
was going to enter Princeton Theological Seminary. Regarding his
move, Thompson said: "I am not an
athletic enthusiast and have taken
part In sports only at the urging of
my friends. In high school and college I did not work as hard to make
a team as some athletes, but entered
into the games for the exercise they
afforded. If I enter Princeton this
fall I will not try for a place on the
athletic team, but will don the track
suit for'a little practice once In a
while."
FRESH WATER COHOE
A cohoe salmon was taken In
Spectacle lake, near Victoria. It
weighed four pounds after being
cleaned and must have weighed five
When taken. It was in poor condition, very dark, scaleless but fat. Its
length was 23 inches. The lake from
which it was taken is little more than
a pond. Five or Six years ago to.
Bailey placed what he thought was
trout fry in the lake. It Came from
the Bon Accord hatchery. Softie Of
the same consignment was also placed in Sooke, Shawnigan and the"
mountain lakes on lower Vancouver
Island.
Last year a cohoe was taken from
the same lake but those who took it
were not stir of their ground. The
fish has been examined by Indians
and experts and all declare it to be a
cohoe.
The fish was shot by hunters. It
was making an effort to leave the
lake by a smal stream and was In
shallow water when shot.
The taking of this fish seems to
proi e that the salmon can live in
fresh water for the term of their natural lives.

POWBMj TO TOUR
Robert II. Powell, formerly of Victoria, Is a member of thi' English
tennis team which lias sailed for
Soutii Africa to play there under the
auspices of the Drive club. The other
members of the team are Wallace.
Myers (captain), C. P. Dixon, P. G.
Lowe and A. E. Beamish. Referring
to the trip and the team the London
Daily Mail says:-—
"With the exception of Dixon and
J'jftls ,it can be looked upon as a
thoroughly representative side of the
younger school of players, and great
Interest will accordingly be attached
to their progress, especially as It Is
an entirely different team—Dixon excepted—from that selected by the L.
T. A. for Ihe Davis cup contest.
"Three matches against combined
South Africa have been arranged.
Durban, Johannesburg and Carie
Town being the respective meeting
places. Christmas will be spent at
Johannesburg, but previous to this
matches will be played against Klm-
berley, Ulnemfonieln and Lady-
sinitli. During January Pretoria,
Delagoa Bay, Buluwayo, Salisbury,
and the Victoria Palls will be listed,
and the tour will be brought to a
conclusion at Cape Town, the team
being expected to arrive home about
the middle of February.
"Soutii Africa can now boast of
several fine players, who have Improved considerably since the visit ot
the All-English team two years ago.
It will be remembered that the Englishmen had all their work cut out
to win the international matches, so
the task of the Drive club team will
be a considerably harder one. They
will doubtless takeys'ome little time
to get Into their game, as lawn tennis out. ther is played only ■• hard
courts. As soon as this has been effected 1 am convinced they will render a good account of themselves,
and thai they will take with them
the good Wishes of the English lawn
tennis community practically goes
without saying."

SIXTH AVENUE GRADE
Section West of Fulton Street May Be
Brought Into Local Improvement Area.
Little   Compliments   Exchanged   by
Aldermen in Discussing the Subject Last Night
Local News
W. Angle appeared before the city
council last evening to ask in what
condition the proposition relative to
a plank roadway on Sixth avenue
from Fulton streel was now in. The
acting mayor asked Aid. Lynch to
explain.
Aid. Lynch said that the original
plan would have called for an expenditure of $500 a lot. The engineer had suggested extending the
scheme so as to include as a local
Improvement area a territory about
two and one-half times as large as
that originally intended. The whole
cost would be about the same as the
excavations taken from Sixth avenue
could be used to fill up other streets
which needed it. If this were done
the cost would only be about $200 a
lot.
He suggested that Mr. Angle consult the engineer's plan and then put
the proposition before the parties interested.
It being suggested by Mr. Angle
that Aid. Hilditch had told some one
that the matter had been dropped,
Aid. Hilditch took occasion to explain.
Aid. Pattullo did not see how a
statement could be made by Aid. Hilditch that the matter had dropped
when there was a motion passed by
the council to go ahead with the
planking. He explained that Aid.
Lynch and the city engineer and himself, as a result of consultations
thought perhaps the scheme outlined
for a larger area would better serve
the citizens.
Aid. Hilditch said he well knew ot
the motion to go ahead with the
planking. What he meant by drop
ping it was with reference to the
grading alone and was so understood
by Mr. Angle. He was guided by
what took place in open council.
What took place among Aid. Lynch,
Aid. Pattullo and the city engineer
he knew nothing about.
It was suggested by the acting
mayor that Mr. Angle consult with
Aid. Lynch and the city engineer In
the matter.

EPWORTH LEAGUE
RECRUITS FOR NAVY
This District Produces One of the First
Pair to Volunteer on
Rainbow.
Gordon   Anderson    of    Kitimaat   i
Heady to Enter Upon Service in
Canadian Training- Ship
Of the first two lads to volunteer
for service in the Canadian navy,
the Skeena District is represented.
Tiie boy is Gordon Anjerson of Kitimaat, who with Edgar Morley, of
Victoria, have signified their readiness to join the force and be trained
under the Britisli crew on board the
Rainbow.
Learning that'the Pacific coast representative of tiie new born Canadian
navy had arrived and that il was
proposed recruiting men, the two
boys early made application. They
are probably the first, volunteers In
Canada. Certainly they are the first
of the West to proffer their services.
And they are worthy types of the Dominion's Western frontier, being
bright, sturdy and keen.
Edgar Morley is sixteen years old.
Of Scottish birth and parentage,
long resident in Australia and for
some years a resident of British Columbia. He is a Britisher through
and through.
His fellow recruit, Gordon Anderson, is a Canadian, having been born
at Kitimaat. He is most enthusiastic.
The step he has taken is not the
outcome of impulse born of the
thought of possible adventure.
Though only sixteen years of age, he
has given the matter deep thought
and arriving at his determination
some time before the arrival of the
Rainbow, came from the north and
was here several days awaiting her
arrival.
The parents of both boys have
given their consent to the adoption
of the careers they have chosen.
Morley's father has' lived in British
Columbia for some time, being well
known on Salt Spring Island. Anderson's folks reside at Kitimaat.
