Members of the Council to Investigate Conditions Upon
Which Contractor Watson Will Agree to Stop
Operations Beyond Junction and
Transfer to Business Centre.
A committee composed of the
members of the streets committee
and the meiftbers of the financial com
mlttee will go into the question of
effecting a change in the contract
held by Mr. Watson for the section of
Second avenue beyond the junction
with the object of seeing if an arrangement cannot be reached by
which the work now being done by
him can be transferred to Third avenue where greater good would re-
.sult. This is the result of the discussion of the subject as brought up
by Aid. Mclntyre. The joint committee will go into the subject with Mr.
Watson and with the bank, and if no
obstacle is met with the change will
be made.       '
On Wednesday evening Aid. Mclntyre introduced the subject, but it
was allowed to stand over until last
night so as to give time to look into
the legal aspect of the matter. Last
night it was again introduced and
after a full discussion it was decided
on the suggestion of Aid. Mobley to
alter the proposition from a motion
to stop work on the part of Second
avenue mentioned and transfer it to
Third avenue to a motion to look
Into the whole question with that object in view and see if satisfactory
arrangements could be made. This
met with the approval of Aid. Mcln
tyre and he accordingly altered his
Wanted Work Changed
On Wednesday evening Aid. Mclntyre introduced the question, but
Aid. Lynch, the chairman of the
streets committee was absent again
and Aid. Mclntyre was not very insistent with respect to it.
Aid. Mclntyre lamented the fact
that Aid. Lynch was not present In
order to consider the question he
was to raise. The council, he said
reviewing the situation, a few meetings ago authorized the work on all
the streets of section one. At a subsequent meeting a,letter was received from tbe Bank of Montreal in
which an occount of reported differences between the G. T. P. and the
council it expressed its unwillingness
to advance the money promised until a settlement was made. It was
stated that there were no differences
between the company and the city
but that question did not affect what
he wanted to say. The money was
not forthcoming and no work was
being done on Third avenue.
The work being done on Second
avenue, he thought, was being done
illegally. The work on Second avenue would cost about $160,000, or
one-third of the whole. The people
of other parts of section one were
being forced to pay for this work
on Second avenue. The law required
that the assessment for a local Improvement work should be on lands
immediately abutting on the work.
By no stretch of the law could this
work on Second avenue be construed as being properly payable by
the owners on First and Third avenues.
Should Stop Work
He thought work that was not absolutely necessary on Second avenue
should be stopped. The work near
the junction was not necessary at
this time. Mr. Watson had put up
a rock crusher at a cost of $3,500
in the expectation that work was to
be done on Third avenue. He thought
the work could be easily transferred
from Second avenue near the Junction to Third avenue.
If there was only $160,000 available at present the aldermen would
all be agreeable he thought to distributing the work as far as possible
equitably over the whole.
His worship said that if it were
correct that the work which Aid.
Mclntyre referred to was being done
Illegally It was all being done that
way. If they were to cut off work
on that score in one part It should
be stopped on the whole.
A "Kick" Promised
Aid. Hilditch felt that the residents of Third avenue and First avenue would have a just "Kick" If all
this $160,000  was to be spent on'
Second avenue. If the money was
to be forthcoming at once it would
be unwise to alter it. If the city
had to go on the money markets and
get the money it would take some
time to get it. The spending of
$30,000 below the junction should
be stopped he thought. He seconded the motion of Aid. Mclntyre that
the work be stopped there.
Aid. Pattullo said he would like
to have an opinion on what the powers of tne council were in such a
matter Ijefore voting on this question. He therefore insisted that
there should be notice of motion
His worship said that he felt that
there was every hope of getting the
money very shortly. He thought this
matter might, rest as ft was just now.
An Election Issue
Aid. Hilditch in support of his
stand said that if the city had to go
on the money markets and get the
money the funds would not be available until the present council went
out of existence. One of the issues
at the next election would be that
of whether^ the local improvement
metnod of doing this street work
was the right one or not.
Aid. Mclntyre contended that the
money being spent as It was, really
meant that the money had been obtained under false pretenses. When
the local Improvement bylaw passed
without a protest from the people it
was not the understanding that the
whole of the work was to be done
on Second avenue. He pointed out
that only about $130,000 was being
spent instead of $160,000 as men
Aid. Pattullo on the merits of the
case did not believe that under the
act it was supposed that the different parts of the work were to be
carried oMt contemporaneously. The
work was to be prosecuted as expeditiously as possible. In any event
Third avenue would be done long
before Second avenue In view of the
immense amount of work to be done
on Second avenue.
Aid. Barrow had .every hope that
the financial situation would be solved very shortly.    He wondered that

Deputation From Moral and Social Reform Association Waits Upon
Sir Wilfrid on Subject.
Advice Given  That Provincial  Government Should be First Approached on Subject
(Special to The Journal)
Ottawa, Oct. 7.—A deputation representing the Moral and Social Reform ssociation waited upon Sir Wil-
fried Laurier and Hon. Frank Oliver
asking the government to definitely
fix the titles to the lands claimed by
the Indians In British Columbia. The
deputation pointed out that the Indians declared their lands invaded
by the whites, especially the railways. The provincial government
denied the rights of the Indians to
the land in question, and as the Indians were the wards of Canada they
asked federal action.
Sir Wilfrid Laurler said he had
no objection to meeting the request
but he thought the provincial government should be flrst approached
and the issue as to ownership threshed out with the McBride government.
Tliis action follows representations made a week ago at a meeting
of the Moral and Social Reform
council of Canada, held in Toronto
when the following resolution was
adopted: "In view of the national importance of securing full justice lor
the native race in all parts of Canada, this council, while not expressing an opinion upon the merits of
the claims now being made by the
Indian tribes of British Columbia,
expresses its sympathy with the aims
of the conference of rfiends of the
Indians of British Columbia in seeking to bring about as rapidly as possible a just and advantageous solution of the problem presented by
existing conditions In that province
and Its sense of the great Importance
of accomplishing that object, and

cilltate a prompt and final settlement
of the whole question of the Indian
"It Is further resolved that the
members of the delegation already
appointed be authorized to present
tliis resolution to the Prime Minister
of Canada and the Superintendent-
General of Indian affairs."
In view of the fact that there is to
be some delay before a decision of
the Bank of .Montreal is obtained in
the matter of advancing further
money to carry on the work of local
improvement in section one, the city
council has decided to call for tenders for the debentures that are
necessary to do it. The amount required is placed at $540,000, and
advertisements will be placed in different financial journals. This decision was reached last night on motion of Aid. Pattullo and in the discussion that followed a very wide
range was taken and the whole question of trouble with the G. T. P., of
the relative merits of work done under the local improvement system
and under the general assessment
plan were fully gone into. Aid. Hilditch opposed the motion, believing
that some changes should he made
in the system of street work, and
pointing out that a larger sum would
be required stortly to carry out the
work needed in the way of water
supply and sewerage.
In Introducing his motion to advertise for tenders for the purchase
of debentures issued under the local
improvement scheme covering a period of twenty years and bearing interest at 4 y2 per cent, Aid. Pattullo
explained that the motion was necessary in view of the stand taken by
the Bank of Montreal, An arrangement had been made with the bank
which was of a most flexible character. The city was only to pay interest on the money actually in use
by the city and not on the whole
sum.    The plan was an excellent one.
He made reference to the good
work of the city engineer who had
only been two months in office and
yet had this work all ready for
starting upon.
The G. T. P.'s Position
He thought it well that-the G.T.P.
should understand the situation
now. As far as he was concerned
he would never be agreeable to exempt the G. T. P. on the properly
held by it. The sooner the G. T. P
understood that hte better. He was
agreeable to an arrangement being
made if the assessment was too high
but he would never stand for a total
exemption  of its  property.
Canada, he said, was not incidental
to the G. T. P., but the G. T. P. was
incidental to the development of
Canada. Northern Canada was a
rich country. They all realized the
rich heritage it was.
The Dominion of Canada was
guaranteeing the bonds of the G. T.
P. There had been 24,000 acres of
land turned over to the company at
about $7.50 an acre. Citizens had
been Induced to come into Prince
Rupert with promises given by the
company and which were not contingent upon matters of taxation.
People had bought about 1,000 acres
and now the G. T. P. said to them,
you must not only pay your own
taxes but ours as well.
Perhaps the time might come,
said Aid. Pattullo, when Canada
might well find it advisable to take
over the G. T. P. which would be a
wise move he thought.
Aid. Lynch said he would support
the motion. He felt the city was able
to borrow this amount and as much
more.    It could borrow up to twenty
per    cent   of its undisputed assessment.    There were no incumbances
on the city which made it easy  to
borrow  the  money.    The action  of
the Bank of Montreal made it necessary to go to the money markets in
order to carry on the work planned.
His Worship's Stand
His worship said that he endorsed
all     that    Aid.   Pattullo  said.     The
Bank of Montreal  in  its letter said
that It could not advance the money
until an agreement was reached wltn
the G. P. R.    Until the G. T. P. was
ready to treat in the matter it was
impossible    to    arrange terms.    He
would  never  agree  to  an  absolute
exemption of the G. T. P.    That company stood to make as much as anyone else by the advance of the city.
He traced the history of the dispute, pointing out that the G. T. P.
had failed to appear before the court
of revision appointed by the government and appeal  from    the    assessment.     They   could   put   the   most
favorable construction  on  the nonappearance and allow that the company  had  not  time  to     take     the'
steps.    He did not want to take any
undue advantage.    He was agreeable
to allow the G. T. P. to get an order-
in-council allowing a new court    ot
revision.    The city did not want to
take  any   undue   advantage.     They
were not here, however, to lie down.
The G. T. P.  should   be    definitely
given to understand that there was
to be no exemption.   He believed ihe
G. T. V. bad been given encouragement enough from people In the city
to believe they could get exemption.
The company should understand that
it could not get thai.
General Revision
Aid. Harrow wanted to know If a
new court of revision was provided
for by Ihe government would it be
open to hear appeals from anyone
or only from the G. T. p.
His worship said It would be open
lo all.
Aid. .Mclntyre asked "could the
government, give a new court of revision?"
His worship replied "yes."
Aid, Hilditch said he would have
to oppose this motion. It was the
flrst example of a city of this size borrowing $540,000 for local Improvements without the vote of the people.     He  referred   to  the  fact   that

(Special to Tiie Journal)
Hazelton, Sept. 7.—Returns have
been received from the ore sent from
Harris Brothers' new locations on
the west side of Nine-Mile mountain
and show a total of $125 in all
r-'our men are at work on the
claims which are eight in number
and three ledges, varying in width

feet have already been found.
The management is preparing to
continue work all winter and expect j
to drive a tunnel on one of the veins
when the snow drives them from the

are now engaged.
The rich returns which these
properties are giving In addition to
the other valuable finds at Nine Mile

Hazelton expect this to become one
of the richest mining districts In the
province. Inquiries from the outside indicate that the Interest Is
steadily Increasing and next spring
may be expected to see a rush In

Hark Coming Again
Hackenschmidt is coming to America again. This will revive a lot of
interest in the wrestling game, as
this fellow has never been thrown,
ln fact, and Gotch's victory over him
was a case of quit. Gotch did not
get a fall off Hack, in fact, was never
near a fall lu the two hours of milling they put through in Chicago
two years ago. The big chap went
up against a line of stuff in wrestling
he had never encountered before,
and quit cold after more than two
hours of wicked work. Gotch was
as much all in as was the foreigner,
and a lot of those who watched the
bout, are of the opinion that the Iowa
man would never have been able to
turn the Invader. He will come hack
according to report, tackle all the
big fellows and then put it up to
Gotch afain. The Iowa man has Improved a lot since he met Hack before, and the match will attract another big crowd. Gotch lias worked
up a splendid line of folks who would
like to see him thrown, as many do
not aprove of a lot of the stuff
Gotch pulls oq in his matches. He
wrestled like a mucker against
Hack before, and in the Zbysczko
match resorted to a cheap trick to
gain the first fall. Zyb marched out
of his corner and proferred his hand
as a preliminary. This is as much
a custom of the mat as having a
referee, but Gotch ignored the hand,
dived under Zyb and dumped him

a rotten performance viewed under
even the lenient code of professional
sport, ■ ays the Winnipeg Free Press.
team to the coast has been called off
because the Vancouver Island clubs
would not chip in with a guarantee
and the Vancouver union did not
care to shoulder the full responsibility.
Gotch Retires
Frank Gotch, who announced his
permanent retirement from the mat
recently, has proved himself tbe
greatest wrestling champion since
the days of Jack Carkeek. Gotch
has had 331 matches since he started In the game In 1898, not counting
many minor affairs, and of this Dumber he lost seven, live of them being handicap matches, in which he
failed to throw his man as many
times as bargained for.
Goteh practically became champion in 1906, when he defeated Tom
Jenkins, who was then considered
the best in the country. He met all
the stars in the country and defeated
them all. His greatest match was
with George Hackinschmidt, the
Russion Lion, whom he won from in
Chicago in 1908. This match was
arranged by W. to. Wittig, the Milwaukee and Minneapolis theatrical
man, and was the sensation of the
age in wrestling circles. oGtch won
without a fall, as Hackenschmidt
gave up after two hours and eight
minutes of work on the mat without any sign of a fall. Gotch went
to England afterwards and tried to
get another match with Hackenschmidt but after much dickering it
fell through.
They were to have met In Australia, but this, too, fell through Gotch
then defeated Dr. B. F. Roller, and
bis last match was with Zybszko,
whom the promoters brought from
Europe to defeat the champion.
Gotch beat him so easily that the
giant Pole returned to Europe without bothering with a return match.
Of late George Hackenschmidt had
expressed himself as willing to meet
Gotch again for the title, but the
anouncement from the champion indicates that all chance of Hack getting a chance again Is gone. Frank
has been a good clean wrestler and
he has plenty of money to enjoy life
with, besides being a large land
owner in Iowa, where he says he will
remain  and  be  a  champion   farmer.
Rugby Team to Tour
The Vancouver Rugby Union has
decided lo send a team to California
this month to play tho California
University teams. Victoria will assist by providing twelve men and
Vancouver will he represented by
eighteen, so there will be plenty of
material to be picked from to do
battle against the southerners.
Vancouver's team will be selected j
this week. A series of two games was
arranged with the Victoria union the
first of which will count Tor the McKechnie cup and also settle which
city will have the honor of defending
the Keith international trophy
against the California representatives in December. The other game
will take place In Vancouver nn December 17 and will go as a .McKechnie cup game. The cities will
flay two more games next January.
No response from Nanaimo has been
received In regard to Ihe McKechnie
cup enquiries and It is not likely that
the Coal City will be represented in
the series.
The trip of the Manitoba Rugby
The Ring
"Bombardier" Wells, whom Ku-
gene Corri considers the coming
boxer, and the man some day likely
to regain the world's championship
for the white race, takes a modest
and sensible view of his prospects.
"Naturally I was very pleased to
learn that Mr. Corrl thinks so highly
of my lighting powers," he said. "An
opinion from such a judge of boxing
as Mr. Corrl puts heart into a young
lighter. But I am sensible enough to
know that I could not do anything
with Johnson yet awhile. I might
be able to stand up to him for ten
rounds or so, but then I should go
under, simply because I have not the
physique to last longer.
"First of all, 1 want more weight
before I can do anything big. Stripped, I am just about 182 pounds, but
I am steadily going up. My height
and reach are all right, and I have
age in my favor, for I am only twenty-three.
"Next, I want experience. I have
only had two fights in England, both
of which I won easily. In India I
fought fourteen fights and won them
all. Most of them were against men
heavier than myself. When I won
the championship of India my opponent weighed 203 pounds. I came back
from India with the express purpose
of trying to win the championship
of England. When I have done this,
I shall begin to realize that I am
some one.
'I have never seen Johnson box,
but from all accounts I should say
that he was a magnificent defensive
fighter. In my opinion the men who
have fought Johnson have made the
mistake of not trying to 'raw' him
more—in not forcing him to lead and
give them an opening. To bear a
man like Johnson you must hit him
hard and often, and the only chance
of hitting a man with such a defence is to compel him to lead and
give you an opening. If I had to
fight the 'nigger' I should keep on
feinting till he was compeled to lead.
Then there would be my chance.
"I am sure this is the only plan.
The negro has shown that he can
keep a man off as long as he likes,
and then wear him down. I hope he
may yet have to show whether he can
take continual hammering from a
man strong, quick and clever enough
to give it to him."
To Regulate I'.oviug
Advocates of the proposed International Board of Control to regulate
boxing throughout tbe world lost a
fine chance to get the sentiment of
many of the prominent men identified with sport with the view of
forming an organization when they
failed to be present at the Johnson-
Jeffries fight on July 4th. No battle
in the history of the prize ring ever
drew such an attendance as was seen
in the arena at Reno, and it was of
such a character as would have helped to advance the Interests of the
new scheme.
William Will editor of Sporting
Life, London, the originator of the
proposed change of boxing affairs,
and a number of English sportsmen,
intended to come over the see the
fight, and Incidentally to obtain the
views of men in organizing a board
of control. When the battleground,
however, was transferred from San
Francisco to Reno and the subsequent, doubts arose as lo whether the
big pugilists would over meet, the
Londoners cancelled all their engagements In this country.
If boxing weei placed under the
management of a board of control it
is believed that It, would do away
with much of the bickering between
the promoter and the boxer, and in
deciding arbitrarily the weights at
which boxers must defend their lltles
and not, to allow a man to set a
weight limit to suit himself. It is
Bugegsted that the board shall consist of two representatives each from
England, America and France, and
one from Australia.
Since the inception of the scheme
which has the warmest support of
such English sportsmen as the Earl
of Lonsdale, Sir Claude Champion
dc Crespigny, Admiral the Hon. Victor Montague, J. H. Douglas, president of the Amateur Boxing Association; William Will, Eugene Cook,
and A. F. Bettison, manager of the
National Sporting Club, of London,
It has received flattering encomiums from sportsmen from all over
tiie world.

does not provide a proper criterion
of the day's play for the easterners
wer certainly not on that consideration four goals to the bad. As a
team htey lacked the combination
they should have possessed and even
the brilliant individual rushes of
L/iviolette and aGuthier were not
sufficient to turn the tide into the
channels of victory for them.
Taken on the whole, the exhibition
was one of the worst ever presented
and provided a spectacle of rough
play rarely, if ever, equalled in these
parts. While there was dazzling
pieces of fine team work at times, the
men appeared to consider that playing the man was as equally good as
playing the ball. The list of penalties handed ont totalled two hours
and ten minutes, which does not Include the ruling off for the rest of
the game of Tommy Gifford, W.
Turnbull and G. Duckett. Gifford
was ruled off In the early part of
Ihe second quarter and before this
occurred It could be observed that
there was trouble brewing.
If there are many more games similar to that of yesterday It will unquestionably sound the death knell
of lacrosse, for Its patrons, who number among Canada's best, are supporters of clean, fair flay, says the
NeWB-AdveTtiser. To say the least,
It was disgraceful and did not reflect to the credit of either leara.
Another unfortunate feature whs
Hint a certain section of th? spectators encouraged 'he players in the
dirty tactics It was a deplorai'.e
Struggle, and some steps must
necessarily be taken by tho executive of each club to see that there is
not a repetition of such conduct in
the remaining games that are to be
Deliberate slashing was indulged
In and it was no uncommon sight to
see men bowled over and struggling
and hitting one another on the
ground. People went to see a lacrosse match, but they saw more of
a slugging game than anything else
and It Is safe to say that some of
the combatants are feeling rather
stiff from their bruishes today.
The free fight which ensued In the
second quarter and the rough play
which occurred thereafter, cannot be
condemned too strongly, for those
looking on the game for the first
time will not treasure the memory
of    Canada's    national    sport   very
warmly. The altogether too vigorous movements which stamped the
game with brutality detracted immensely from an exhibition which
otherwise might have proved attractive, but both twelves bear the reputation of being exceptionally fast.
Compared with the Minto cup series,
the encounter must be ignored for
it fell away below the standard of
reasonable anticipation.
How the free fight realy started
nobody really knows. Al that was
seen as the active forces of humanity
piled one on top of the other was
that there was a great deal of swinging of lacrosse stocks and a combined fistic display. Tommy Gifford
slashed at Lavlolette and the latter
naturally resented It. Instantly both
players bore to the ground with the
Frenchman on top. Lavlolette was
altogether too strong for Gifford and
pummelled him rather too severely.
A number of players of both teams
then took a hand and displayed sides.
Keen excitement prevailed and a
score of so of civilians, with one
policeman, interfered. The fighters
were eventually separated and Gifford, who, upon rising to his feet,
heaped Insults on Matt Barr, the
referee, was banished for the rest of
the game. Laviolette's pugilistic display cost him twenty minutes on the
penalty bench and Hughie Gifford
and Dr. Lachapelle, who also figured
prominently in the melee, got a
similar period of compulsory rest.
Towards the end of the last quarter, Duckett, who was marking W.
Turnbull rather closely, checked
with splendid precision, but In robbing the Royal City man of the ball,
was brought heavily to earth. Duckett made sure of his man and hooked Turnbull with his lacrosse stick,
the result being tbat another scrap
took place. Going for one another
like tigers and hanging on to each
other's garments, they looked an exceptionally wild pair. After indulging in this unscheduled performance
for a few minutes, they weer parted
and each received a check, ruling
them off for the remainder of the
The game emphasized one necessity. It plainly showed that In such
an encounter, where there was so
much bad feeling, that there should
be two officials handling the match.
Despite the absence of a judge of
play, Mr. ,LioneI Yorke being 111,
Matt Barr ruled with an iron hand
and penalized whenever the occasion
arose and that was pretty frequently.
He proved himself a referee of the
first water and as soon as trouble

broke out punished the players In
a manner which they deserved.
Above all, Matt Barr was exceptionally fair. It is doubtful If Canada
can boast of a better referee. Taking into consideration all the abominable features which intervened, he
mastered the gann In a manner
which found ready recognition from
the large crowd, which numbered
about 4,000. Had he not been under.the handicap of looking after the
game single-handed, it is not impossible that one or two of the ugly
features would not have occurred, although having regard to the bad
blood which was introduced almost
at the comemncement of the struggles, it is rather a big deduction to
As for the game Itself there is not
much that can be said that Is not
contained in the foregoing. Newsy
Ltionde appeared on the grounds,
but did not play, and he had a
worthy substitute ln Jack Lavlolette,
who, with Gauthler, shared the
honors. These were practically the
only two players who bored through
the New Westminster defence. The
other players kept feeding them with
the ball and never considering others
or acting on their own Initiative and
the result was that Gauthler and
Lavlolette were the most keenly
watched. Gauthler was the shining
star and easily the best player on the
field. Wintemute probably played
the best game for the champions. He
bore down upon the Nationals' defence In thrilling style and scored
two goals; Grumpy Spring netting
three, and Cliff Spring one. The Nationals' two goals were scored by the
brilliant Gauthler.

the amateur lacroses championship
of Canada. The game was fast and
stubbornly contested and Vancouver
held the upper hand in the opening
stages, but faded away ln the second
half. While only three goals were
registered in the flrst half, eleven
were netted In  the second portion,

L. S. Amery of London Times is S:rongly
in Favor of it for
He Looks Forward to Great Farming
Section Being Developed in
Nelson Valley
With the descriptive power of the
practised writer, Mr. L. S. Amery,
the colonial editor of the London
Times, who recently accompanied his
Excellency Earl Grey on his northern trip, drew for the benefit of the
Empire club at Toronto, whose guest
he was recently, an alluring picture
of the possibilities of the Hudson
Bay route, not only as an avenue of
trade and an economic factor in
the destiny of Canada, but as a link
ln the Empire fraught with importance.
Up to the present, he said, the
question of the Hudson Bay route
had been regarded largely as a plv-
ate interest of the prairie provinces.
So far from that being the case, he
maintained that the Hudson Bay
route and the development of the
Hudson Bay region is a great national asset for the whole of Canada,
and a great Imperial Interest as
Dealing flrst with the question of
the Hudson Bay route as a channel
of transportation, Mr. Amery pointed out that the western short of Hudson Bay was nearer the great grain-
growing area by anything from 1,000
to 2,000 miles than it was to Montreal. That prima facie made a very
strong case for the building of the
400 odd miles of railway required to
connect Hudson Bay with the prairie
provinces. But it was well worth
while to keep In mind the various
difficulties and objections that had
been urged. There were no engineering difficulties likely to be encountered, there was nothing to prevent
the line from being constructed at
a comparatively small cost, and there
was no Insuperable difficulty In the
way of finding a harbor. Churchill
was a very good natural harbor, with
a narrow entrance, and with a semicircular vein of rocks almost completely enclosing It.
Question of a Harbor
lit is not a very large harbor, and
would not hold more than three or
four fair-sized ships, and the question not yet determined was whether
it could be enlarged without great
expense. Another harbor was at the
mouth of the Nelson river. At present no ship could venture in there
because the Nelson went into a perfect wilderness of shoals. He had
spoken to a great transportation authority, who had strongly favored
Nelson as a port. On the other hand
all the sailors who had hitherto navigated the Bay preferred Churchill.
Mr. Amery thought It was impossible
to say at present which would make
the better harbor. He had endeavored to find out what period the Straits
could be considered open for ordinary tramp steamers.
Some people said that with Icebreakers and other provisions they
might be kept open for six months,
but they might take It that for ordinary traffic the Straits were not
open until the middle of July, or
even the 20th of July, and they remained open until some time in November. A ship ought to leave either
Churchill or Nelson In the flrst week
In November to get out of the Bay.
But during those four months the
navigation of Hudson Straits and
Hudson Bay was just as safe as the
navigation of the St. Lawrence. That
practically meant that a ship could
leave England before the middle of
July and, with proper facilities for
handling the traffic at Churchill or
Nelson, could make three complete
trips before the close of the season.
He thought that ought to dispose of
the argument often advanced that Insurance rates would be prohibitive
Advantages of the Route
The Hudson Bay route would not
be confined to the export of grain
alone. It would open to the merchants of the west a channel for
bringing ln their goods at a time
when they most need It, namely,
during the months Immediately before the farmer had his money ln
his pockets. It would also enable
harvest laborers to leave England,
work on the prairie and return after
the harvest was over. In the west
they had the idea that the route
would help the farmer ln getting his
cattle to marke ln better condition
than by rail, and It would help the
development of the west and the
northern part of the prairie region
by keeping down the cost of trans-
Bay route would undoubtedly help
portatlon    generally.     The Hudson
British trade. It would bring the
northwest as close to England for
four months as the east was to England at present. If it benefitted
British trade it would also benefit
the trade of the Maritime provinces
of Canada, and so contribute to the
unifying of the Dominion.
"I am convinced" continued Mr.
Amery, "that great as may be the
advantages to Canada of the Hudson
Bay railway, considered as a trans-
portion road, the advantages of the
road in opening up a great new country would, be even greater. All the
evidence goes to show that north of
the Saskatchewan the whole of the
strip of territory to the Nelson, extending 250 miles, is suitable for
agriculture." Mr. Amery added that
ther was an Immense clay region
along the propsed railway, and also
Into the southern territory which
came within the province of Ontario.
"I bellev the time will come when
you will have a farming population
extending right through that belt all
the way up probably to the Hayes
river and Nelson." But there were
other economic reasons in favor of
the Hudson Bay route.
Fisheries and Pulpwood
There was going to be a great fishing industry in the bay and lakes and
rivers in the vicinity, and, said Mr.
Amery, "as Hudson Bay is a. terri-
tioial sea belonging to Canada, we
must insist that the whole development of the fisheries shall go to Canadian fishermen." Another interest
becoming Increasingly important was
that of pulpwood, and he had no
doubt that in the region round Hudson Bay, from Nelson or Churchill
south, right round James Bay and
some distance up the coast of Un-
gava, there was the largest area of
pulpwood in the world, and the sea
best adapted for the marketing of it.
Then there was the question of minerals, which geologists told them
Were scattered throughout that region, and filially the political and
general aspect, dealing with which
Mr. Amery emphasized the importance of the Hudson Bay route for
defensive purposes.
C. Company is in Prosperous Condition  According  to  Reports
The British Columbia Copper company with its smelter at Phoenix,
is in a healthy condition, according
to late returns. There is in the
treasury $250,000, which Includes
amounts due for copper delivered.
The British Columbia Copper company has ores running high in both
gold and silver, particularly the former, from which there is a standard
income of $20 an ounce. This ore
comes largely from the Jack Pot, the
company's ned shipper in Wellington camp. This has enabled the company to produce its copper and lay
it down In New York ready for sale
—notwithstanding the long railroad
haul across the continent—in the
neighborhood of seven cents a pound,
a record which many producers on
the continent have not yet attained.
Now that one of the furnaces at
the company's reduction works has
been enlarged, the smelter has increased efficiency without increased
cost and will be able to treat about
2,000 tons of ore dally.
The company's August operations
resulted In a net revenue of $32,500.
These profits compare with $11,918
in July, and $7,121 In June. After
crediting gold and silver values it
cost the company 7.7 cents a pound
to produce Its coper in August, with
only two furnaces In operation.
The production during the previous seven months was as follws:—
Copper     Gold    Silver

British  Scientists  Tells  of  Important
Change Going on in South
Interesting Information Given Out at
Meeting of the Association
in  Sheffield
v York
E. R. Vlpond has received the contract from the National Resources
Company for taking all the merchantable timber from their large
tract of land In the ' Iclnlty of Na-
kusp. The contract Is to be completed within one year, and will yield
2,000,000 feet of sawlogs, 100,000
railway ties, and 3,000 telegraph
poles. The sawlogs are to be delivered at Nakusp.
Among the most interesting incidents of the annual meeting of the
British association, sitting at Sheffield, Is the report of the committee
on earthquake Investigations. The
committee has completed down to
1900 a catalogue of all the destructive earthquakes recorded in history.
They date from A. D. 1 and they
number more than 4,000. The record
refers only to earthquakes which
have been accompanied by destruction or by changes of the earth's
surface, or which have extended over
large areas. In many instances these
justments in the earth's crust of
disturbances have resulted In ad-
geological importance. The sources
from which materials have been
drawn include Japanese and Chinese
The report says that although the
periods of seismic activity In Italy
and Japan were separated by irregular Intervals of time the years in
which there had been marked activity
in one of these countries closely corresponded with the years when there
had been marked activity in the
other. Should further analyses confirm this conclusion, the suggestion
is that the relief of seismic strain
in one part of the world brings about
relief in some other part or that relief is governed by some general internal agency.
The most startling thing in the report is the suggestion that at the
present time a new continent is in
the making. It is pointed out that
the most pronounced seat of earthquake activity today is along a band
runnig from the southern extremity
of the Philippine islands and Java
in an east-southeast direction toward
the middle of the Pacific. In the
islands which stud this area with
their intervening troughs are seen
the outcrops of mountain ranges of
Himalayan proportions. A further
upheaval of no great relative Importance would mark the birth of a continent.
One of the accomplishments of the
committee on behalf of the association in the last year has been the installation of improved instruments
for earthquake recording upon islands and in other widely distributed
locations in all parts of the world.
Complete world records of the earth's
spasms and tremors will be available
to science henceforth.
The report says that for seevral
years past small thickenings have
been observed in the traces of seis-
mograms obtained from the British
association instruments. On quickly
recording photographic surfaces
these appear as ripples. When analyzing records obtained by the
steamer Discovery in the Antarctic
regions it was noticed that a number of these thickenings were recorded in England about 100 minutes
after heavy shocks had taken place
to the soutii of New Zealand, and as
this was the interval of time that
large surface waves of earthquakes
would take to travel over a path
about 180 degrees in length it was
concluded that the hitherto neglected records were the surviving efforts
of large earthquakes.
This was confirmed when fifty-one
of the after shocks from the Jamaica
earthquake of 1907 were recorded in
Great Britain at exactly the time at
which they would be expected to
reach this country. The committee
was not aware that any one of these
shocks was recorded by other types
of Instruments either in Britain or
Europe. A similar story was told
In all the registers, published since
1907. Earth messages appeared to
be passing beneath observatories all
over the world, but their existence
was not recognized because the Instruments generally used were not
capable of recording them.

().  II. NELaON,
Friday, October 7, 1910.
A suggestion has been made that
the Provincial Government might be
induced al the present time to step
into the breach with respect to the
elty street work and guarantee the
bonds of the city. We have no hope
that any such move would be attended with any success. Much as
the Government at Victoria might
feel inclined to assist In every way
possible in aiding the city, the move
suggested is one that we do not believe the Government would feel that
it had the power to act upon. It
would be setting a precedent that
would lead to all kinds of difficulty.
We do not believe any good can be
accomplished in holding out any
topes along this line. Such a course
savors of the times in the earlier
history of this province when the
central Government at Victoria was
approached on all possible occasions
and asked to lend its good offices in
lines that are now never thought of.
Ih those days a sort of paternal government was administered from Victoria. There were but few municipalities and these looked to the Government to do as much for them as
was done for the unorganized portions that were governed directly
from the capital.
With the introduction of the newer
system, however, in late years the
different sections of the province
are urged by the Government to
organize into municipalities. There
has been a very general movement
in that direction and the country is
fa3t assuming through its municipal
iivlsons a large share of local self-
When the City of Prince Rupert
sought a charter it asked by that act
on the part of the citizens to be
given the right to conduct its own
affairs without any Interference from
Ihe central Government to the full
extent that the law allowed that self-
government. This included the right
to tax its people and to carry on all
the municipal works. When these
rights were taken there was also assumed responsibilities that go with
local self-government. The people
cannot take the one without the
other. By Its action in asking for
incorporation the citizens said in effect that they were ready to assume
all the responsibilities that went
with the creation of a city. It would
jurely be illogical at this stage of its
history within a few months of incorporation to ask for a reversion to
the old paternal form of government
from which the people of this province are endeavoring to get away.
The introduction of the Government into the question of the one
set of debentures of the city would
require a continuation of it, as the
Government would require to guard
the credit of the city in a way that
would not otherwise be thought of
were it not interested In a part of the
indebtedness. There would continue
lo be divided Interests in the city administration which would be anything but desirable. The Government,
It Is safe to say, would hardly wish
to take such a course.
Apart from this aspect there Is
nothing to indicate up to the present
that the council will not be able to
idjiisf matters without any asslsance
nutsiilo of the powers given it.
A despatch from Ottawa Indicates
that the Moral and Social Reform
Association is dabbling In the question of the Indian lands In this province. Willie that body Is no doubt
jcting along lines that It conscientiously believes In be light, we believe
the members of It would be better
serving the objects they have in view
if they would keep out of the matter
they have taken up. If they understood a Utile more the difficulties
connected with the subject they
would be more ready to keep their
bands off it. It is Interference from
sources like this that gives those
having the matter in hand the most
There is no desire on the part of
the Ottawa Government nor the Victoria Government to deal unjustly
Tith the Indians. The Indians' case
ean always be left to the government
hi this country without danger of the
Indian suffering. It is a principle
Instilled     into     tho    people  of  this
country that the Indian must be
given all that is coming to him and
lo the honor of Canada it can be said
that never has the principle been
i iolated. Ottawa will never see the
Indian imposed upon and this applies to no particular government,
but to all governments.
The principle of protecting the Indian to the very fullest in all the
rights that he possesses has time and
time again led to no small injustice
lieing perpetrated upon the white
race. But the people of this country are prepared to endure that In
order that there should be no going
back on Ihe traditional policy of giving the Indian all that could be construed in any way as being his right,
i he move made by bodies such as
Ihe one referred to, however, has the
effect of creating a false hope among
some of the Indians which is Increased by those who have motives to
serve by il. It has a tendency to
prompt the Indian to he unreasonable and to expect as is often the
case that he is entitled to more than
should be his part. The Indians in
this province cannot stand in the
way of settlement simply because
they get wrong impressions as to
what is coming to them and because
theorists who do not know the local
conditions amuse themselves in passing idealistice resolutions. It is a
pity some of these people who so intrude into matters that have serious
aspects for those who are on the
frontier, could not be told promptly
by the authorities to mind their own
Good  Progress  Has   Been  Made  on
Electrical Proposition
Mining Hen  From  That Rich District
are Coming Out for the
Excellent  Prospects for Those Who
Have Invested in That Part
of the Province
Work on the Treadwell gold canal
in the Yukon is progressing rapidly.
Three hundred men are employed
on the canal and on the pole line
over which the power will be conveyed from the power house.
The pole line has been completed
to the Arlington hotel at the mouth
of Hunker. Telephone communications will be established between the
headquarters at this place, and Daw
son and the creeks. The work of
stringing the copper wire is to be
started at once.
A line of poles has been erected
along the canal, and telephones have
been put in at all the camps along
that stretch.
Electric lights will be put on each
of the poles to facilitate the work at
night. Two hundred men are working on the ditch and the port er
houses. Two-steam shovels are io-
Ing practically all the digging. These
shovels dig 240 to 300 yards of dirt
per day in two ten-hour shifts. The
shovel at the upper end of the line
made a record of 800 feet of ditch
in forty hours. Four and one half
miles of the six mile ditch are completed, and the steam shovels will
bethrough with their work by the
first week in October. Timbers are
on the ground for the large pressure
box and the flood gates at the lower
end of the ditch. Work on this will
be started as soon as lumber can
be cut at the mill now being erected on the Klondike, just across from
the power house. This Will be ready
in three or four days. Logs for the
mill are cut and on the ground.
Excavations for the concrete
foundations of the power house are
being made with a steam scraper
plant, and are about completed.
Cement is being hauled at the present. Carpenters are busy erecting
offices and mess houses at the power
It is expected that power will be
turned on next May. Ten thousand
horsepower will be generated at first.
The ditch Is twenty feet wide and
six feet, deep. It Is planned to put
on a small electric dredge after the
water Is turned Into the ditch and
to deepen the canal to nine feet. This
can ho done without Interfering with
the flow of water.
The waler is taken from the Klondike, twenty-five miles above ihe
power house and brought through
the ditch six miles, which gives It a
full of over 200 feet at Ihe power
house. There Is more than enough
water to develop 20,000 horse power.
There arrived in the city on Wednesday evening the first of the mining fraternity that makes its scene
of operations the Omineca District ir
the vicinity of Manson and the head
waters of the Peace River. They ar
rived here from Hazelton and report
most promising outlooks in the different parts of the country in which
(hey carried on operation^
Included among the number who
came out was G. W. Knowlton, of
Vancouver. He has claims on Silver
Creek on which he has had a force
of men working, and while he is very
reticent, saying little respecting his
properties, he is thoroughly well satisfied with the results of the work so
far. There are good reasons why
Mr. Knowlton is not anxious to talk.
He is neither seeking to sell the
mines he has, nor is he wanting to
sell stock in them. He is, on the
contrary, well satisfied to continue
work on them himself and is convinced that the results will warrant
all the trouble and expense he is
going to.
The proposition on which he is
working is one that will require
dredging to get the best results. This
summer he has been drilling on the
claims in order to test the ground.
The drill was delayed in getting in
and the work that was accomplished
this season was not by any means
what he expected to have done. It is
a remote country to reach, and it is
somewhat uncertain just when the
equipment is going to reach the
mines. This was the case with re
spect to the drill and work has stop
ped before the results that are ex
pected could be decided.
The whole country in that vicinity
is glacial in its character. There are
no sharp peaks in the hills. On the
contrary, the tops have all been
rounded off by the action of the
glaciers of other ages. In consequence the old river beds have been
covered with an Immense deposit and
it is for the miner to find the old
beds and reap the harvest that there
awaits him. The rivers of the present time have given good returns to
the placer miner but this is nothing
it Ib anticipated to the rewards that
await the hydraulic worker when the
location of the old beds is found.
By the use of the drill which Is
transported into the country at the
freight rate of twenty-five cents a
pound, Mr. Knowlton has been seeking the old bottom and is sanguine
as to the results. He expects to have
to go to a depth of about sixty-five
feet. When the presence of the gold
is proven he will put in a complete
outfit to handle the deposit on a
large scale. He is at present making arrangements for this outfit
which will cost In the neighborhood
of about $50,000 and which will afford the means for handling the dirt
in a profitable manner.
Mr. Pollock Is another miner who
has been in that part of the country
seeking what is there. His scene of
operations has been near the Parsnip
river on a branch that flows Into that
waterway. In his case the depth at
which he Is obliged to work Is only
about ten feet where bed rock Is
met with in the river bottom. He Is
well satisfied with the results at the
property and says that all those who
have been ln that part of the province this season are well pleased with
the outlook. The number is Increasing each year and there is every
prospect, that it will become one of
the richest districts of Ihe province.
It was In this part of Ihe country
that. Dr. R. E. McKechnie, of Vancouver, spent considerable lime ibis
summer, reference to which was
made some weeks ago In the Journal. Dr. McKechnie will, il is believed, revisit the same regions again
next year on the lookout for what
will prove good revenue producers.
He was well satisfied with the outlook as far as he travelled this season and will renew his search for
coal or any other good thing ln the
mineral line that offers.

capital, lias been in the district

country a good deal on the lookout
for other properties in view of the
increasing interest that is being attracted "to the Omineca in common
with the rest of the northern country.
Another who came down the
Skeena from the placer district was
Charles McKinnon, one of the province's earliest miners. He came into
the Cariboo country in '64 and has
been chasing the elusive gold camps
ever since that time. All the rivers
of any consequence in the country
have been visited by him in the
search for the nuggets and he has
had his part, and that an important
one, in opening up the country to the

had little inclination to get away
from the life which he has been living. Only twice has he come out
of the gold country ln that time. This
is one of the occasions. He has gone
on to Seattle.
Accompanying him on the way out
were Ezra Evans and James May
both of them '59ers. They stopped
off at Hazelton.
Trouble Again  Faces  Citizens  With
Respect to Approach
The town of Stewart seems destined to have a wharf trouble always on its hands. When some weeks
ago the Dominion government an>
nounced its intention of completing
the approach from the present wharf
to the city and renounced all connection with the Mann wharf, it was
believed the matter had at last been
Delays in getting the material on
hand followed and again Stewart
was in arms. Now with material
there there is a cry made that the
approach is not in the right place.
As a result a public meeting was recently held and the following resolution  passed:—
"Resolved, that we, the property-
owners and residents of Stewart, authorize our executive committee to
approach the wharf contractors and
request that the work now ln progress be discontinued on this end until the committee hears from Hon.
Wm. Templeman; also that full
power be given the committee to
take what steps deemed advisable to
have the wharf approach changed
back to the foot of Vancouver street,
also, that the matter of employing
counsel to effect these desires be left
to the discretion of the committee."

Since April last, work has been
carried on under the management of
Mr. F. M. Wells with a crew of several men and by cross-cutting and extending previous workings a large
body of ore has been proven at the
250-foot level In the main tunnel, the
vein at this point being over fifteen
feet in width and averaging fully $15
in gold per ton. The tunnel was
driven on the vein throughout its entire length of 300 feet, th% vein at
its narrowest point showing a width
of our feet, and practically all of the
ore can be worked at a profit. A
slxty-flve-foot shaft has been sunk
on the vein above the tunnel and a
cross-cut at the bottdm shows eighteen feet of ore similar to that opened up in the tunnel below. In addition to the vein described, there Is
also a parallel vein four feet in
width which carries much higher
gold values. A tunnel has been run
for some distance in this vein and
a cross-cut 100 feet from the surface
shows four feet of ore averaging over
$30 in gold per ton.

Aid. Hilditch Wished Information as
to Ninth Avenue Supply
At the meeting of the city council on Wednesday evening the subject of the water supply on Ninth
avenue was brought up by Aid. Hilditch and also incidentally a question raised as to the general policy
of the council with respect to the
supplying of a water service to any
part wanting it.
Aid. Hilditch wished to know If
there was any report relative to
water on Ninth avenue. He thought
they should get the water on the avenue If possible. The water was
there and they might as well get a
revenue from it. He wished to ask
if the water committee intended to
place water on any street at a reasonable price provided the people
would use it.
Aid. Mobley said the matter had
been taken up with the engineer.
There was no report yet. The engineer's report must necessarily decide In large measure In such matters as he had the most exact knowledge in the matter.

While  Working at   Quarry  nt  Port
Mr. McGrath, a brother of Joseph
McGrath, the well known mining
man of this city, met with a painful
accident at Port Essington a few
days ago. He was working in the
quarry which is being operated to
furnish granite for the Canadian
Fish & Cold Storage company, when
he fell off a pier striking a rock with
the side of his face and fracturing
his jaw.
He was brought here by the Port
Simpson after being treated by Dr.
McPhee, and placed In the hospital.
Through some mistake his friends
here were not notified and some little
delay ensued in getting him placed
in the hospital. Ensign Johnson of
the Salvation Army, and others took
Ihe matter up and through the city
council, fthe government agent and
Dr. Eggert the matter was adjusted.
Mr. McGrath Is doing well.
Discovery Hade by   Medical Man Af

United States May Bar Hindus Landing Owing to the Presence of
This Disease
(Special to The Journal)
San Francisco, Oct. 7.—It has re
malned for Dr. M. W. Glover, of the
U. S. Marine Hospital service now
stationed at the immigration office at
Angel island, to discover an effective
means of checking the Hindu immigration. With his discovery will be
found probably a simple way of
ohecking other forms of Oriental immigration.
Dr. Glover, who is one of the cleverest medical men ln the service, has
discovered that the Hindus are afflicted with the hookworm and is
making a full investigation into the
matter. This, is is believed, accounts
for the lack of energy so prevalent
among the people from the East. The
disease is curable but is a sufficient ground for refusing admission
to those affected. Millions of dollars are being spent in eradicating
the disease in the southern United

Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
Arrested Policeman
Savona.—It is seldom that the police of British Columbia are given
so complete and mystifying a surprise as that occasioned them a few
days ago when a detail of the Royal
Northwest Mounted Police appeared
at Savona, armed with a warrant
which could not be gainsaid, and
made their prisoner the local constable, Frank Islip, who bad but two
months ago been apointed to the
charge of the Savona district from
Vancouver police headquarters. Islip
had just returned from an official
visit to Quilchena, and found the R.
N. to. M. P. men paiting for him.
He accepted the situation philosophically and made no statement, being
taken backto Regina forthwith to
stand trial. The desertion is said to
have been in the long ago. Indeed it
must have been, for Islip was for a
considerable time a member of the
Victoria fire department, before removing to Vancouver, where he was
attached to the provincial office. A
successor to have charge of Provin
clal police affairs at Savona will be
named at once.
still   greater   profits   and   more   extended operations.
A feature which has marked the
past year is the increased attention
which has been given to the matter
of development work in the mine and
the excellent results obtained will
doubtless lead to still more exten-
live development during the coming
years, especially as the new equipment will allow them to push the development more expeditiously and
economically  than  ever  before.
New Regiment
New Westminster.—This city is to
have a regiment of militia of its own
independent of the regiment with
headquarters in Vancouver, the Duke
of Connaught's Own Rifles. The new
regiment with headquarters here
will be the 104th.
"There are now sufficient men
signed up on the service rolls to ensure four full companies for the
104th regiment," stated Major Johnson, a few days ago. Two of these
companies are to be in the city, and
the others are to be at Cloverdale
and Chilliwack. Much speculation is
rife in militia circles in the city as
to who will be the officers of the new
regiment, but It Is not known yet
whether any decision has been reached on ths point, nor will the names
be available for publication until approved by the department at Ottawa. It is rumored that several of
tbe former officers of the local companies who have been on the reserve
list will re-enter the active field, but
these gentlemen, whn sen by the reporter were unwilling to make a
Hindu in Kitchen
New Westminster.—The self-destruction of Iman Dhin, the Hindu
sentenced to ten years imprisonment
ln the B. C. penitentiary, has been
averted by giving him a job in the
prison kitchen. Iman Dhin alleged
that the touch of the Christian polluted his viands and he stubbornly
refused to partake of food prepared by the infidel giaour. Death to
his body rather than that his Immortal soul should perish was Iman
Dhin's resolution. Warden J. C.
Brown needed no advice from Ottawa as to his remedy for this state
of matters, for he had Iman Dhin's
co-religionists under his case before.
Now Iman Dhin after his work in the
kitchen is performed, cooks his own
rations, sits In a corner by himself
and consumes them. Warden Brown
was Instructed In the prejudices and
peculiarities of Indian castes years
ago and he knows what food is tabooed to different Orientals.
Pays Dividend
Hedley.—Apart from the substantial benefit which the people of
Hedley derive from the Nickel Plate
Mine and works they have reason to
feel a just pride In the continued
success which marks its operations.
This week again they learn of another quarterly dividend of three per
cent being declared In New York by
the directors of the Hedley Gold
Mining company, the dividend being
payable on the first of October to
all shareholders of record on September 17.
Thus every quarter the usual dividend of three per cent is declared
and paid and there is no fuss about
It on the one hand nor mystery on
the other. The company has now
operated the property a few days
over the year and already the fourth
dividend has been declared in addition to much improvement in the
mine and works.
The net profits of the mine, even
with the old equipment have been
going over $90,000 every quarter
which is considerably more than Is
necessary to pay the current dividends that are being maintained,
and by the time the Improvements
now under way are completed, which
will be ln aboul a month or six
weeks more, the Increased output as
well  as  the  closet   saving  of  values
Kisb Hatcheries
Victoria.—Three new fish hatcheries have been just about, completed
by the Dominion government on Vancouver Island and will be in operation this autumn. There are situated
at Cowichan lake, Anderson lake,
and Kennedy lake. Each will have a
capacity of something like eight million fry and will be of great value to
the fisheries of Vancouver Island.
Mr. G. Taylor, Dominion government
fisheries inspector, speaking of the
new hatcheries, says:
"The Cowichan lake hatchery,
which Is just about complete, Is situated near the Riverside hotel, Cowichan lake, just at the outlet. It
will have a capacity of nearly eight
million eggs and will be in operation
within a week or so. The fish which
will be propagated at this point will
be all of the sporting variety. Wa
shall make a specialty of trout, steel
heads, cohoes and tyee or spring salmon. This will not only improve the
river and lake from an angler's point
of view, but will also improve tha
trolling in Cowichan bay and adjacent waters.
"The Anderson lake hatchery will
be situated near Uchuckllset harbor
on Alberni canal. It will have the
same capacity as the Cowichan lake
hatchery and will handle only commercial fish. The water at this place
is unusually cold and especially well
suited to the purpose.
"The third hatchery is paced at
Kennedy lake, on Clayoquot sound,
and will also be utilized for propagating the commercial varieties of salmon. It, has the same capacity as
the others and will be of great value
to the fisheries of the west coast.
"Sportsmen who are In the habit
of frequenting Cowichan river or
lake wll be particularly pleased to
know that their favorite haunt cannot now be fished out. This river
and lake are bound to become great
tourist resorts in the near future,
and everyone will benefit as a result
of the foresight of the Dominion government."

One hundred and fifty boxes of the
choicest fruit will be contributed by
Pentlcton and the district south. A
carload will go from the north end
of the valley and another carload
will, it is expected, be sent, comprising the contribution of Okanagan
valley and growers to their friends

This latter arrangement has been
made ni order that as wide an advertisement as possible may be made of
Okanagan valley fruit. Mr. E. Bullock-Webster will have charge of the
Pentlcton exhibit.
To Curtain Output
Nelson.—The convention of the
Mountain Lumbermen's Manufacturing association here last week decided considerably to curtain the mill
prouuction owing to the falling-off
in the demand from the prairies.
Prices will be kept up to the present
scale and may be raised to meet the
increased cost of production.
The opinions expressed by leading
lumbermen are that the greatest difficulty' they have to contend with is
the dumping of American lumber
made possible by the absence of a
protective tariff.
A special commitete was appointed
to deal with the matter, and if necessary drastic steps will be taken to
meet the situation.

"I hid the letter in various ways.
On nearing London, when I thought

Land for Settlers
Victoria.—Messrs. Carmichael &
Moorhead, Ltd., of Victoria and Port
Alberni, have closed an important
deal with the Esquimau & Nanaimo
Railway company whereby they have
secured from the railway company
an option top urchase upwards of
35,000 acres of the best land on Vancouver Island. The areas include
11,000 acres in the Alberni valley,
12,000 acres in the vicnlty of Englishman's river, and 12,000 acres
along the projected line of the E.
& N. railway company to Comox.
Messrs. Carmichael & Moorhead have
parties in the field making a thorough topographical survey of , the
lands and an examination for land
and timber values. When this work
is complete they will proceed to open
up and develop the lands and offer
them for settlement.
Indians Hold to Land
Victoria.—Despite the fact that
it had been several times announced

the Fraser and Nechaco rivers as
a site for Its new divisional point
and the future city of Fort George,

indicate the acquirement of the reserve by the railway is by no means

Big Timber Case Settled

arose out of the sale by Lester David
of all his Interests In the Fraser
River sawmills to E. Swift, A. D. McRae and their asoclates. The sale
Included all the timber limits held by
Mr. David, and It was alleged by the
purchasers that when these were
cruised they found their value to be
$250,000 less than had been represented by Mr. David, and they
brought action to recover that
The case, which was heard last
June, occupied Mr. Justice Clement
for about six weeks, the evidence being almost entirely confined to timber cruisers who told somewhat varying tales. From this tangle Mr. Justice Clement has been able to adduce
a judgment for the greater portion
of the amount claimed by the plaintiffs, arriving at the result by a
great deal of painstaking figuring.
Mr. E. P. Davis, K.C., and Mr.
Pugb appeared for the plaintiffs, and
Mr. E. V. Bodwell, K.C., and Mr. R.
L. Reid, K.C., for the defendants.
Supervising Engineer
Vancouver. — Criticism was let
loose at a recent meeting of the city
council when a letter was read from
the mayor reporting on the condition
of certain thoroughfares and making
certain recommendations, one of
which was that a supervising engineer should be appointed. Speaking in support of this recommendation, his worship stated that they
wanted to secure a man who would
be eminently suited to attend not
only for Vancouver's present needs,
but also for the future—for the
Greater Vancouver. It had cost the
city from $25,000 to $32,000 a year
for services supplied by experts on
the percentage basis and he thought
the present an opportune time to
save this and appoint a man who
could supervise properly the engineering work of the city. He claimed
that a3 high as $20,000 a year would
not be too much to pay for such a
man, for he ccntended that far more
than that would be saved to the city.
The motion to appoint such a super-
vslng engineer was lost.

J   Municipal Ownership   $
+ *
The question of municipal ownership of the public departments of a
great city, formed the subject of an
interesting talk that the News-Advertiser of Vancouver had with Mr.
Frank Spedding, J.P., editor-in-chief
of the Dally Record and Mall, of
Glasgow, Scotland, who is on a visit
to the coast. Mr. Spedding Is touring the dominion on behalf of his
paper, and during the conversation
expressed himself as a great believer
ln the efficacy of municipal ownership.
"And you are absolutely persuaded," he was asked, "that It Is of
advantage to have all these things
municipally managed?"
"Well, I should say yes," he replied. "The municipality of Glasgow
owns all what, you might call the
public utilities of Glasgow—the
street railways, the water service,
the electric lighting, gas, and partially the telephone—and I thing in
each "f these services the results
pustify the assertion that municipal
control is a success. Our trams—>
or as you call them here, your street
railways—have been showing a big
surplus ever since the corporation
took them over from the company,
which ran them practically at a loss."
"It was a horse railway when you
took It over, I believe?"
"Yes, it was, but on some of the
routes electrification had been Intro
duced before the corporation took it
over. The corporation of Glasgow
ln running the street railways, has
reduced the cost of travelling to a
minimum. We have half-penny stages
of very great length, and on some
of the services of districts outside
Glasgow, we have even farthing
"How far can you go for three
pence, that Is about five cents?"
"For the equivalent of five cents
over there you would travel four or
five miles easily, but very few people
would travel that distance. The halfpenny stage would probably run a
mile and a half. They have had a
huge profit eevry year, and when I
left they were considering how best
to devote this profit to the good of
the community. They have a 'common good' fund and have been putting the surplus Into that, but latterly there has been a movement to apply part of the whole of this surplus
to the reduction of certain municipal taxation. But against that It is
contended that the large property
owners who do not use the trams but
use their own automobiles, and so on
and who, therefore, do not contribute to the profit of the trams, would
reap the benefit.
"The ideal of municipal ownership
Is to bring the surplus, If posslbl,
nearer the state in which the revenue would balance the cost; that Is
to balance the two sides of the account."
"How is your telephone? Does
that pay its way?"
"No, it does not," Mr. Spedding replied. "I think they tried to run it
too cheaply. They charged only 25
shilling a year (about six and a
quarter dollars). Tbat was very considerably lower than the charges
made by the National Telepnouc
company, which was probably four,
five or six times as great in some
cases, but certainly all were four
times as great. The lowest charge
the National Telephone company
made might easily be five or six
pounds a year. It was reduced too
much. The government Is taking
over the yhole of these services next
year, 1911, both the National and
the corporation, so that it will be one
great government system after next
year, and will be worked on tbe lines
of the post office, but whether that
Is going to be a good thing or not
I do not know."
Away back, when herds of buffalo
western mountains, two hardy pros-
grned along the foothills of the
pectors fell in with a bison that
seemed to have ben separated from
his kind and run amuck. One of the
prospectors took to the branches of
a tree and the other dived into a
cave. The buffalo bellowed at the
entrance to the cavern and then
turned toward the tree. Out came
the man from the cave, and the buffalo took after him again. The man
made another dive for the hole.
After this had been repeated several
times, the man In the tree called to
his comrade, who was trembling at
the mouth of the cavern:
"Stay in the cave, you Idiot!"
"You don't know nothing about
this hole," bawled the other "There's
a bear in it!"
Steady Increase is Shown in Volume
For the United Kingdom
The board of trade returns for
August will show a steady increase in
the volume of trade. During the
month the Imports of the United
Kingdom totalled £52,030,617, an increase of £3,619,413 on ugust, 1909,
and the exports (including £8,099,-
313 worth of foreign and colonial
goods), £46,738,196, an increase of
£7,633,437 on August, 1909.
Under the heading "Articles wholly
or mainly manufactured" there was
an increase ln exports ln every department, the total Increase being
£5,747,837. Only £358,509 worth of
new shipping was exported In August, 1908, but last month, owing
to new warships leaving our shorai
for foreign countries the total was
£2,196,123, an increase of £1,837,-
614. Cotton goods are up £587,933,
woollen £686,200, iron and steel
£465,044, other metals £105 5 7",
electrical goods {481,159, cutlery
£101,898, chemicals £141,429, and
earthenware and glass £104,234.
With regard to raw materials, coal
increased 414,035 tons in quantity
and £329,979 in value. OH seeds,
nuts, oils, fats and gums improved
£145,342, while wool fell off £124,-
950. Our exports of food and drink
were £376,240 larger.
Our imports of raw materials rose
£2,868,927, of which £416,599 was in
raw cotton, owing to higher prices,
the quantity received being 28,342
cwt. smaller. We received 19,132
cwt. more rubber, equal to an Increase of nearly 45 per cent, while
the value advanced £696,418, or 69
per cent.
Wood and timber Increased £663,-
983, oil seeds, nuts, fats and gums,
£432,133, and hides and undressed
skins, £294,548.
Of the increase of £1,171,513 in
manufactured articles, leather figures
for £139,825, cotton goods £131,915
chemicals £157,535, railway carriages and trucks £120,248, iron and
steel £124,300, cutlery £104,065,
paper £98,362, and electrical goods
and apparatus for £52,768; but
metals other than iron and steel declined  £105,278.
There is a net decrease of £467,224
In food, drink and tobacco, which is
accounted for by a falling off of £1,-
830,197 in grain and floor. With
the exception of Russia and Australia
whence larger supplies came to hand,
our receipts of wheat from the principal countries were smaller.
France, the United States and Canada sent us less wheatmeal and flour,
while more came forward from Germany, Argentine and Australia. We
received less maize from Russia, Rou-
mania, the United States and Argentina, but Canada shipped us 37,700
cwts., against nil last year.
During the eight completed periods
of this year Imports reach the huge
figure of £435,780,412, an increase
of £35,463,406; and exports (Including £71,633,179 of foreign and colonial goods), £353,245,962, an increase
of   £47,796,214.

Comment of Chief Justice in Cnse in
Which Plaintiff Was an American
This year 15,000 hens have been
shipped from the east to British Columbia.
A verdict, for $2,500 and costs was
returned by the Jury which, with
Chief Justice Hunter on the bench
in Victoria, had been hearing the
damage suit of Ogllvy vs. White,
arising out of the tally-ho accident
which took place a year ago near the
corner of May street and Lover's
Lane, between Dallas road and Fairfield road.
Plaintiff, with others, ln August
last was taking a ride on defendant's
tally-ho coach, and in going down a
grade near Dallas road, was thrown
out by tbe upsetting of the coach In
an excavation through the alleged
negligence of the driver. He had
his left ankle broken and sustained
other Injuries which necessitated an
operation and confined him to the
hospital here for some fifteen days.
On his return to his home In the
States, another operation was found
necessary, and the evidence went to
Bhow that he is permanently injured.
Chief Justice Hunter ln his charge
to the jury, which was as usual clear
and concise, commented on a reference which had been made during
the trial to the fact that plaintiff
was an American while defendant
was a British subject and a resident
of this province. He reminded the
jury that In every part of the British dominions justice was the same
for all and freely accessible to all,
whether foreigner or citizen.
"No matter what may be the fact
as to commodities between ourselves
nnd our neighbors there Is no protective tariff on justice," was his lordship's epigram.
the Torontonians putting plenty of
ginger into their play.
Vancouver started operations quite
early in the game but were forced
back and Toronto invaded the vitls-
ors' territory. They were, however,
repulsed by McCuaig, who relieved
In splendid style. Toronto then took
a shot but McDonald cleared easily.
Joe Heal again relieved but McCuaig grabbed the ball and pasBed
to Murray who made things interesting. Vancouver nearly scored but
the ball bounced when Pocock took
a shot. First blood went to Young
Torontos who landed a successful
shot. Score, Young Torontos 1,
Vancouver 0.
Play bristled up again, and Gil-
mour taking the ball from Wright
scored for Vancouver, making it
even. Vancouver was right after
Toronto's goal, forcing play continually. Knight ran in once, but
got sandwiched. Vancouver had lots
of ginger, and the defence went up
to help the home at times. McDonald, In goal, did great work and was
not afraid to leave his nets. Score
at end of first quarter stood: Vancouver 2, Toronto 1, which underwent no change when half-time arrived.
Upon the resumption both teams
attacked In turn, the homesters being the most successfully aggressive,
netting five goals to their opponents'
In the last quarter both teams
scored two each, and the final reading was 8 goals to 6 in Toronto's
Maltlands  14,  Cornwall  6
The other game in connection with
the Mann cup series was that between Maitlands and Cornwall, the
former gaining a decisive victory by
14 goals to 6.
Many of the Dutch of South Africa do
Not Look With Favor on Him
Pre-eminent among the Boer gen
erals in the field, the first premier of
Jnlted South Africa has been preeminent also among his compatriots
by virtue of the breadth and generosity of view with which he accepted the consequences of the annexation of the two republics. He has
given more than one expression of
his belief that a great future lies before a South Africa which unites tha
efforts of Boer and Briton.
But In the eyes of some of his compatriots the attitude which he has
adopted towards the conquerors of
his country is fare from appearing in
the light of chivalrous; it amount
rather to a desertion of race ideal
which is unworthy of one who was
formerly commandant-general of the
Boer forces. A recent article in
the Dutch magazine, "De Goode
Hoop," protests strongly at the loyal
language which General Botha is disposed to hold with regard to the British flag and the friendly sentiments
he Is apt to express for the representative Britons in South Africa.
"It is to be hoped," says the writer
of this article, "that our prime minister will in future be less inclined
to lend his ear to the Jamesons, and
will be rather less given to making
known his pride in his British fealty
The latter is not perhaps a sin, but
is scarcely becomes one who was for
merly commandant-general of the
South African republic. Involuntarily
one asks: 'If Botha is so great upon
the Union Jack, why did he fight for
the Vlerkleur?' No! Whilst it is the
duty of every former burgher of the
Soutii African republic to submit to
the Treaty of Vereenignlng, It is not
becoming for any of them to behave
as If he rejoiced over the loss of his
Independent flag. I have too much
respect for the general to Btipposo
that It Is agreeable to him that his
people are no longer Independent; 1
believe that his extreme loyalty Is
not founded too deep In his heart,
and that politics has a great deal to
do with his professions. But ex-
Presldent Steyn stands no lower In
the regard of Englishmen In South
Africa than he, because he has not
manifested such an exceptional affection for the Britisli flag. What well-
disposed Englishman expects such an
affection from one who was formerly
a republican? From my heart, therefore, I hope that our prime minister
will be somewhat more cautious in
liis utterances, if only for the sake of
the influence which an Afrikander
in his position necessarily exerts upon the character of the people."

A quarter of a mile of "tube"
railway is about to be constructed
from the Bank of Liverpool street
station, at a cost of £250,000, or at
the rate of a million pounds a mile.
It is to be ready in eighteen months.
The new line will be an extension of
the Central London railway, and will
bring the Great Eastern railway terminus and Broad street station also
into direct touch with the whole tube

hoped to substitute moving stairways
for the lifts at the Liverpool street

there and will return to Prince Rupert at an early date and finish his
work here.
Mr. Seeley has not much to say
about the conditions. His duty is to
go carefully over the whole of the
place and report conditions to his
headquarters exactly as he finds
them. In common with the other
officials of the association he represents, little information is given out
until the final report is made from
He says however that In his tour
about the city he found conditions ln
some parts and in some respects very
creditable. There are other parts
where the regulations relative to insuring against fire Is very bad.
One condition that he mentioned
which he says is a very dangerous
one is the presence of long lines of
buildings set on piles without any
divisions between the buildings that
would insure the stoppage of a draft
and enable the control of a fire
should it break out. At least a two
inch double board wall should be insisted upon between the different
buildings so as to assist in the work
of preventing the spread of a fire
should it break out.
In the matter of gasoline Mr. Seeley has some suggestions to make
which It is presumed will come before the authorities in due course.
Where the lighting is by gasoline the
wire tubing should be carefully put
ln. It should be carried along without any twists and securely fastened
ln place. In addition to this, he says,
that the usual practice is to have the
wire piping from the gasoline chamber enclosed in a gas pipe and to
have the gasoline chamber in a
metal lined box with a padlock attached.

Work Will Be Completed About Be-
gluing of New Year
About the beginning or the new
year the Provincial Government
wharf in this city will be ready for
use. Tliis is the announcement of
Sol Cameron, th,. contractor fir tbe
work, who has just returned to the
city. Tiie sea wall, the slowest part
of the work, is row nearing completion. With that part completed the
remainder can be rushed forward
much quicker.
A place has been cleared for the
construction of the great reinforced
concerte piles that are to be put In.
The material Is being assembled to
be used in the construction and the
moulding of thew will soon commence. When the wharf is completed this city will be able to boast of
the only wharf of any magnitude on
the coast that has this style of structure. Since the contract was let here
there has been a little work of a similar kind carried out on a wharf ln
Victoria, but no extensive work
done. The style has been introduced from Australia where the use of
the piles has been attended with the
greatest success.
The apparatus for handling the
heavy piles lias all been got on the
grond and there should be little do-
lay when the undertaking Is once ln
It is probable that the sea wall
will be extended a little farther east
than was the original intention. This
Is recommended in order that if use
is made of Manson Way as a means
of approach to the wharf the fullest
use may be made of it. The extension would give ample room In which
to make the necessary turn ln leaving or approaching the wharf from
Manson Way.
Frank Plant charged with stealing
jewellery from a woman named
Catherine Washington, was acquitted
by Judge Young a few days ago. The
judge, while he found no evidence to
convict took occasion to lecture
Plant on his habit of living and
warned him never to appear again In
his court.
AJd. Lynch had stated at the start
that the money could be borrowed on
the credit of section one alone. Now
it was found the whole credit of the
city was to be affected. The council
was now back to where it began. No
such sum should be borrowed without the people being allowed to pass
judgment on it. He felt the G. T. P.
should be made aware exactly of
where the city stood. It would be
better to have an understanding
right at the start.
Aid. Hildltch's Plan
The simplest way out of the difficulty, he felt was to go" to the city
with a bylaw for enough money to
do the rough grading, provide the
water system and tbe sewerage system. This would take about $1,000,-
000, he supposed. It was felt that
over a million would be spent In the
next three years until the G. T. P.
was completed. It was believed at
the time that this money was to be
spent among the men who with their
families were living in the city. The
council had deviated from that piece
by piece until now it was letting to
the lowest tenderer irrespective of
whom he employed. The council, he
felt, was not elected to carry out
that policy. He believed the w(k«»l
course was to borrow the money as
he proposed.
Aid. Lynch objected to the statement that he had assured the council that the money would be borrowed on the credit of section one alone.
He had stated it could be so done. To
rough grade all the streets of the
city would cost not $1,000,000 but
$5,000,000. If the .money was borrowed on an assessment on the whole
property would mean that every cit
zen had a right to say that the street
should be graded In front of his lot.
He had favored the frontage tax because there was more certainty in
getting the streets where they were
most needed.
Labor Aspect
Aid. Hilditch said that under the
local improvement system applications to grade streets had been turned down. If it could be done under
a local Improvement system it could
be done on the other system. The
matter would right itself. The taxes
would increase on the property along
the improved portions.
The most important question was
the labor one. The keeping of the
citizens in work was most important.
The G. T. P. had undertaken to
attack the credit of the city. It would
be easier to borrow on the credit of |
the whole city.
Aid. Lynch said that he wanted to
correct Aid. Hilditch as to turning
down petitions for improving streets.
The only petitions that had been
turned down was on the report of
the engineer when difficulties were
to be encountered and this would
apply in some instances to the work
twenty years from now.
Aid. Pattullo said the labor question had nothing to do with this subject. It would be easier he felt to
borrow the $540,000 than it would
be to borrow $1,000,000, or $1,250,-
000 as suggested by Aid. Hilditch.
Charitable Institution
Aid. Naden suported the motion
of Aid. Pattullo. It would be much
easier to borrow $540,000 than $1,-
000,000 as sugegsted by Aid. Hilditch. He agreed with Aid. Lynch.
He had believed that the borrowing
of money was with the object of putting the city in shape for business.
According to Aid. Hildltch It was a
sort of charitable Institution to gve
men work.
Aid. Hldltch took exceptions to
this. He said be made no such reference
Aid. Mclnl -e said 'he discussion
reminded him of the old day* when
the council went IntJ the question of
local Improvement He started as
a deciple of Aid. Hildltch, but he had
been convinced by Aid. Lynch on the
argument that the money could be
raised for section one without embarrassing the credit of the rest of the
city. He had fallen in with the Idea
on that ground. Now Aid. Lynch had
changed somewhat. The city had
gone as far in this that he thought
it best to go along with it. He
agreed that the G. T. P. should not
be granted total exemption. He did
not thing the company expected that.
He would favor however an early
settlement of the question of assessment.
Water Loan
Aid. Hildltch called attention to
the fact that a survey party was engaged on the water. That could not
be carried on very long on funds
from the general revenue. The city
would have to soon go and borrow
money for- water. The same applied
to the sewerage system. The city
must  meet   these   Issues   very  soon.
This issue of debentures would not
be floated until there would be these
others pressing. There was a
legacy of trouble going to be handed
over to their successors.
His worship said the work of the
water survey would soon be through
with, and work would have to be
Aid. Pattullo did not want to settle all the large questions now. These
things would come up in time. This
council could not hope to settle all
the problems. There would be work
for their successors for years to
Aid. Mobley said he had come to
the conclusion that the local improvement system was the best. This
council did not have to settle all the
problems the city had. If they could
not raise the money for the water
works that would have to stand.
The motion carried, Aid. Hilditch
voting nay.
Veins of Workable Thickness Found on
Morice Creek Properties.
Doc'kiill   and   Jefferson's   Company
Strike Good liodies at Easy
Harry Howson, one of the earliest
mining men to invade the Telkwa
country, has been in the city a few
days this week on his way to Telkwa.
He is going in in connection with a
group of claims he has there and expects to return very shortly.
From the Telkwa comes very gratifying news. According to the report from Hazelton the Prince Ru-
per coal fields, being explointed by
Frank Dockrill and Thomas Jefferson, have been found to be rich in
workable seams.
It will be remembered by readers
of the Journal that a forest fire put
one of the drills of the company out
of business for aw hile this summer.
It was put into operation again and
although a short season followed
good results attended.
At a distance of 178 feet from
the surface the drilling had to be
stopped but coal totalling 28 feet in
thickness had been cut and the drill
cores brought to the surface. Three
seams aggregating 23 feet were pronounced minable. The other five
feet Is composed of small seams not
large enough to be mined. Such
tests as they were able to make on
the ground indicated a good bituminous coal.
The area Is about two and a half
miles by three and is partly on the
watershed of the Morice river and
partly on the Telkwa river. To reach
the main line of the G. T. P. at the
mouth of the Telkwa river a branch
of something upward of twenty miles
will have to be built and this looks
at the present time as though it
would be the route adopted. The
distance to the main line down Morice river is said to be longer.
Permanent work will be commenced next spring as early as men and
supplies can be brought in.
The work on the city electric
lighting plant is progressing well according to Aid. Mobley's verbal report given to the council. The poles
will soon be ready and the lines for
these are being now located. Work
is in progress steadily at the site,
which will be made ready for the machinery as quickly as possible.
(Continued from Page One)
there wns not objection raised
against spending money beyond the
juncton If the work was useless at
the time the matter first came up.
Aid. Hildltch said that at the
time that was passed upon was simply that there was every prospect
that there would be funds for the
whole of section one and this was
to be Improved because It was In
section one. He felt that it was not
yet settled whether the work would
be carried out under a general loan
or as local improvemeent.
Might Not Allow Chnngc
Aid. Mobley did not know that the
bank would permit of a change ln
contract. The bank allowed the contracts now let to proceed but this
did not mean that they would necessarily permit of changes. The present discussion showed what would
he the result had the work been done
under a general loan scheme. It
would,mean a pull from all quarters as to starting the work.
Aid.   Barrow  wanted  to know  If
Aid.   Mclntyre   considered   that   the
letting of the contracts on Second avenue as let was illegal.
Aid. Mclntyre said that he did not
agree that that was the situation. It
might have been inexpedient as a
matter of policy for the work to have
been confined to Second avenue
alone. He felt that to proceed with
all the work on Second avenue would
be against the spirit of the law, however.
It was ruled that Aid. Mclntyre
should give notice of motion, which
he did later.
Makes Formal Motion
Again last night the subject was
introduced, Aid. Lynch being present.
In moving that work be stopped
on Second avenue beyond the junction Aid. Mclntyre said that he had
nothing to add to what had already
been said on the subject. He had
no purpose ln view to cast any criticism of any alderman. There was
enough of that from the outside. He
moved on the broad principle that
the work should be carried out where
it was most needed. With respect
to the objection raised by Aid. Mobley that the bank might not wish to
transfer the contracts he had himself consulted the city solicitor who
said there should be no difficulty.
The contractor said he was willing
to change. The manager of the bank
assured him that their would be no
trouble. In fact the bank would be
more agreeable to the work being
done where the more business was
centred in the heart of the city.
He, therefore, moved in favor of
stopping work on Second avenue beyond the junction for the present.
Question of Agreement
Aid. Lynch wanted to know what
arrangement was made with Mr.
Watson with respect to a new contract.
Aid. Mclntyre said he had no power in the matter. Mr. Watson expressed himself as agreeable to make
the change. He thought he could be
recompensed for what he had done
on Second avenue. He could then
transfer to Third avenue and do the
remainder of the work there.
Aid. Lynch said that for his part
if Mr. Watson would make a business deal in the matter he would be
agreeable to it. He did not think
that anything would be done until it
was fully agreed what figure would
be allowed on the work done. Mr.
Watson would have a damage suit
against the city if the work were
taken away. All of section one was
contributing to this work. There
was no special reason for doing that
part first except that it was ready to
proceed with.
Aid. Naden Undecided
Aid. Naden wanted the fullest discussion on the subject before the
council decided to stop the work. He
seconded the motion in order to allow the subject to bo brought up for
In reply to a question of Aid. Alc-
Intyre, Aid. Lynch said that his suggestion was that Mr Watson should
be asked what allowance ln would
make for stopping there. He would
he thought expect more for the same
measurement of rock on Third avenue than he would en that part of
Aid. Mobley referred to a conversation he had with Mr. Watson. The
latter had said that while he did not
want to do it he sugegsted that if he
was given an equivalent amount on
Third avenue he w.iuld do it. If
Mr. Watson was agreeable to this he
tvould be satisfied to transfer.

definitely settled whether this money jw.  Patmore,  Barrlster-at-Law, with
a copy of the Writ of Summons herein and a copy of the order now being
was to be forthcoming. He thought
it wise to have this threashed out
with the bank as to what guarantees
were to be wanted from the city. If
extraordinary guarantees were wanted he thought It might be wise to
cancel all the contracts. The money
would be wanted for the contractors
from time to time. He thought Aid.
Pattullo's motion relative to advertising the sale of the debentures
should have been  disposed  of first.
Aid. Pattullo said they had the assurance of the bank manager that
the money would be forthcoming. He
anticipated no trouble ln that respect.
Aid. Mclntyre said the manager of
the bank had assured him the sum
of $160,000 would be advanced. He
further said there would be no technicality introduced Into the, matter
with respect to transferring of the
contracts. The manager had said
that the bank would be better satisfied to have the work done in the
business ections of the city.
Motion Altered
Aid. Mclntyre was agreeable to
altering his motion so as to have It
definitely agreed with Mr. Watson as
to what should be done.
Aid.   Mobley  sugegsted  a  motion
recited and by publishing notice of
the said Writ of Summons and order
in the Prince Rupert Journal for six
Issues thereof. And that you be required to appear to the said Writ of
Summons within eight days from the
last publication in the said newspaper

ths effect that the streets committee and the finance committee be empowered to see the manager of the
Bank of Montreal and Mr. Watson

Aid. Mclntyre was agreeable to
this, and accordingly adopted that
motion which was carried.
