RUSHING IN DIRECTION      mineral production replied to Indians
\JjF   PRINCE  RUl   EiY I   Canada's Mines Have Increased the Value Premier McBride Gives   Abor;gines   no

Grand Trunk Pacific is Being Rapidly Hurried Forward
From the Edmonton End—Contractors Have
Large Force of Men Pouring in.
That Prince Rupert is rapidly being joined up with Edmonton and
thence with the east is shown by
the following taken from the Edmonton Capital, telatlve to work on
the G. T. P. out of Edmonton:
Two years ago It required three
weeks in which to make the ' trip
from Edmonton to the Rocky Mountains. Today a traveller can make
the trip to the foothills in ten hours
and can make the round trip to the
Athabasca river and return in three
days.
All this has been made possible by
the inauguration during the past few
weeks of new train services west of
Edmonton over the new steel of the
Grand Trunk Pacific. One can
scarcely realize the revolution in
transportation in the country west of
Edmonton than the inauguration of
this new service lias brought about.
A traveller who left Edmonton
two years ago, bound west for the
mountains, required to outfit for at
least three weeks on the trail. He
had to take with him all the equip:
nient and provisions necessary for a
long journey through a wild country
still  unsettled  and  uncivilized.
Today all the equipment that a
traveller needs in making a trip to
the foothills and back is a suitcase
and a fairly well-filled pocketbook,
for prices are still very high in the
western country.
Two years ago, the farthest point
west of Edmonton that could be
reached by rail was Stony Plain, it
took nearly three weeks from that
point to reach the foothills. A year
and a half ago the rails of the Grand
Trunk Pacific reached the Pembina
river, but it was not until less than
a year ago that any kind of a train
service was inaugurated.
A year ago the steel reached Wolf
Creek, but only a desultory train
service was run, and it generally
took from one to two days to reach
the McLeod river, 100 miles this side
of the mountains.
Last summer a tri-weekly service
was inagurated by which it was possible to reach the Pembina river in
half a day, and Edson in one day.
It Is only within the    past    few
weeks that rains have been operating to the foothils, but so heavy has
been the traffic west this spring,
and so rapid progress has been
made with the improvement of the
track that It has been possible to
inaugurate a fast train service right
through to the end of the steel
which lies up among the- foothills at
Prairie Creek, 200 miles west of Edmonton.
A tbraveller takes the daily train
for the west at Edmonton at 6:30 in
the morning. He reaches Edson,
130 miles west at noon, and at three
be takes a train for Prairie Creek.
By nightfall of the same day, be is
up in the foothills.
The Grand Trunk grade has now
been completed to the Athabasca
river, 230 miles west of the city, and
before the end of the summer, trains
will be running right west to the
Yelowhead Pass, and the steel will
be pushing up into the pass.
Foley, Welch and Stewart are
rushing the construction in the
mountains. They are now at work
on their stiffest contract, the building of the 100 miles from the Athabasca through the pass and over the
summit of the Rockies to the Tete
Juan Cache.
For this work tiiey are rushing all
the men and machinery they can
obtain to the front. Already they
have men to the number of several
hundred tearing away at the grade
in the mountains, and within the
next few weeks, six 40-ton steam
shovels will be lifting large chunks
of mountain earth from the right of
way, all through the pass. These
steam shovels were taken west last
week, and are now being hauled in
by team from the end of the steel.
Three thousand men will be required for tlie season's work by the
big contracting firm. They are ship
ping in men from Winnipeg now at
the rate of 100 per week, and appear
to be having no difficulty in procuring them. The labor market at
present is flooded with men out of
work, and many of them are being
brought up from the old camps on
the national transcontinental in New
Ontario.
A PROMISING MINE
Interest in Silver Cup Has Been Sold
for $30,000 Cash in
Vancouver.
Hazelton    Properties    Are    Looked
Upon in the South As Hich
Producers
Mr. E. L. Kinman, of Vancouver,
has sold his interest in Silver Cup
mine, Hazelton district, for a cash
consideration of $30,000. The names
of the purchasers are not made public but it is understood that mining
men in Prince Rupert and Hazelton
are the buyers, says the News-Advertisers.
Silver Cup mine is located near
Hazelton and fast developing into a
mine of great possibilities. Many
experts declare the property to be
the greatest and most important
silver-lead discovery in the history
of British Columbia. Mr. W. W.
Leach of the Dominion Geological
Survey, recently gave an interview
concerning the remarkable discoveries in the Hazelton district and confidently predicted the district would
become the greatest silver-lead camp
on the continent. The Silver Cup
mine is described as a true fissure in
the sedimentaries. The vein has
vein lias been proven by a series of
four tunnels to be strong and persistent with high values for approximately 2,000 feet in length, developments quite sufficient within themselves to attract the attention of tlie
mining world to the opportunities of
the Hazelton district.

I Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, March 7.—Ninety-six
Indian chiefs and delegates from vil
lages throughout British Columbia
assembled last week and presented
a memorial to the Provincial Gov
eminent asking for proprietory
rights to all surrendered lands. The
spokesman said: "I wish to hear if
you claim this country of British Columbia, if it belongs to you and your
government or does it belong to the
Indians? If you claim It, we are of
opposite opinions and desire to go to
pome big court house to get it set-
tied." Hon. R. McBride replied that
the Indians had no claim to the unsurrendered lands. They had larger
reserves than were needed, many being unoccupied, and he blamed the
pernicious activity of some white
men for causing them to come to
Victoria on this matter. The great
delegation of Indians drawn from
throughout the province was organized by a society entitled "Friends
of the Indians," beaded by missionaries and prominent churchmen, including the Bishop of Columbia.

CAUGHT IN AMBUSH
In the police court yesterday
morning L. Pablo, charged with selling liquor at the Fulton Hotel without a license, was remanded until
today by Magistrate Carss. The evidence of the police was that Pablo
sold whiskey and that a search of
the premises resulted in the discov-
evry of bottles.
The accused denied he sold the
drink to the police officer and contended that the liquor found was
used only by himself. "I cannot
live without whiskey," he said. Ho
explained he was without money,
having "gone broke" in the Fulton
Hotel. He was found guilty thia
morning and filled $505, or in default three months with hard labor.
He is serving sentence here.

DEBENTURE OFFERS
City is Bid Various Rates for the Bonds
it Proposes to Put on
Markets.
Last evening the city council oc-1
cupied the greater part of its sitting |
in the consideration of the liquor by-1
law of the city.    There were present j
many citzens representing the hotel
keepers of bhe city and also members of the Social and Moral Reform
Council.
The council finally decided to
leave the bylaw as it has been with
respect to the duty being put upon
hotel keepers to see that any intoxicated person who has been served
with liquor on the premises shall be
accompanied to his home by some
one who is not intoxicated. The
hours for closing the bar were fixed-
at 12 o'clock midnight except on
Saturdays when it. shall be 11
o'clock. The license fee for bartenders was reduced from $5 each
half year to $2.50. The clause alleging to make it obligatory that the
license commissioners should cancel
a license only upon conviction of a
licensee was not incorporated in the
new bylaw as passed.
Before the council proceeded to
the regular order of business it was
suggested that the delegation representing the Social and Moral Reform Council should be heard. This
was agreed upon and Bishop Du
Vernet addressed the council.
Bishop Du Vernet *
The Bishop as president of the
council, said that the matter to be
brought up was one of great import-1
ance to the moral welfare of tbe
city. The council had decided upon
a small delegation, representing the
legal, medical, clerical and business
sections of the city. He bad studied
the old liquor bylaw and tha new
bylaw. He had no objection tc tbe
lowering of the licensee fee of the
bartenders. Upon the bartender as
the servant of the keeper there
should be no objection to reducing
the license fee. On the request for
the taking away of the requirement
that a hotel keeper should take care
of one who was served with liquor
in the hotel, be must raise an objection, however. In view of the elevated roadways here this was a humane regulation. The respectable
hotel keepers he felt would not ap
prove of inhuman conditions. He
felt like appealing to his old friends
who were in tbe hotel business to
refrain from pressing for this regulation. As to the hours of closing
he cited the fact that there was a
move throughout Canada for more
early closing of bars. It would be
contrary to the spirit abroad
throughout Canada to take what he
felt would be a retrograde move to
extend the hours to which the bars
could be kept open at night. An
authority had given statistics to
show that the most of the arrests for
drunkenness were made during the
two or three hours before midnight.
If a money bylaw must be referred
back to the people surely sucli a
change as this should not be brought
in without a reference to the people.
L. W. Patmore
L. W.  Patmore understood that a
change     In     the     hours     suggested
would   require   either   a   change   in
the hotirs of the police or a larger
police   force.     The   council     should
look  into  this.      Why     should     the
hotel men ask for an hour's extension?     He  had  not  taken  an  active
part in  the  Scott act campaign.    It
was   pointed   out   during   that   campaign   that   drunkenness     was    the
great drawback to the hotel keepers.
Why should this be asked for then?
Was the request made by the industrial  workers or  by    the    business
men?    A petition counted  for nothing.     You   must   get   down   to   who
l originated   this.     There   were  many
who  signed  that  petition   who  were
afraid not to sign it.    Was there any
section outside of the hotel men who
wished tlie bars open for the extra
hour.    It was clearly due to the fact
that the hotel keepers were not making enough money.    Where was this
money  to come  from  that was got
between 11 and 12 at night?    It was
the men who had got into the habit
of drinking that were to be sold to
at that  hour.     The  hotel  men  were
not well advised in bringing this up.
He did not think the present council
should  lake a  retrograde movement

Complaint Is Mad,' As to Short Life
of Them by Financial
House
At the city council meeting last
evening tenders for the city debentures were opened in accordance
with the advertising which was
done. There were two sets of debentures put on the market for bids,
one for $79,560 four-year debentures for planking various streets,
the interest being at 5 per cent. The
other debentures were for twenty
years at 4 % per cent, the issue being  $40,000  for telephone purposes.
One of the tenderers called attention to the life of the debentures being so short that it was difficult to
find investors. Then- was reference
also in some of the letters to the
Grand Trunk Pacific taxation question and the provision was made
that this should be settled as a condition of accepting the debentures.
C. H. Burgess & Co., of Toronto,
offered $113,500 for the $119,50(1
of debentures.
Campbell, Thompson & Co., of
Toronto, offered $77,144 for tlie
$79,500 isBiie and $39,040 for the
$44,000  issue.

W, A. McKenzle & Co., of Toronto, while not making a direct offer,
asked for an option at 98 for 30
days.
Bent, Moxon & Co., of Toronto,
refused to bid, owing to the short
time the debentures had to run.
George A. Stlmson ft Co., of Toronto, wrote that they would prov-

That the city council is seriously
considering the question of water
power as a means of lighting the city

the proceedings at last evening's sitting of that body.
The city engineer forwarded a letter from M. E. Maxwell, of Camrose,

PROTECTIVE POLICY
Clifford  Sifton's  Speech  Against  the
Government's Agreement.
He Voices His Views As a Convert to
Protection for Canada
The speech of Hon. Clifford Sif-
ton in the House of Commons at
Ottawa, wherein he took direct issue
with the Liberal party, with Which
he lias always been Identified, and
his bOid declaration against the reciprocity agreement, was listened to
with  intense Interest.
Almost at the outset Hon. Mr.
Sil'ton Faid lie felt In the matter he
could not fully agree with the leader
of a party with which he had been
identified practically all his life.
This would demonstrate the seriousness wherewith he regarded the issue.
He admitted that 20 years ago he
had followed the Liberal party's policy of unrestricted reciprocity, but
before the campaign was over be
was convinced he was wrong. Therefore it was with satisfaction he regarded the laying down of a policy
in 1898 of abandoning attempts at
reciprocity. That would show his
present attitude was not the result
of sudden impulse, but in conformity
with convictions formed during 20
years of close association with the
public affairs of Canada. It was not
for a small matter that a man left
his party In Canada, but he felt no
other course was open to him if he
was to maintain his self-respect. He
complained of the paucity of information furnished by the government
in presenting tlie most important
tariff changes in twenty years. This
he contrasted with the abundance of
information furnished by the minister who presented the Grand Trunk
Pacific project. From this Mr. Sif-
ton concluded either that the government did not have the information or that, having it, did not present it because it did not bear out
their policy. As a member of the
government in the elections in 1900
and in 1904, he could assert that in
neither of these appeals was reciprocity contemplated. Therefore,
the government had no mandate,
and when the fiscal policy was thus
twice discussed and approved there
was no warrant for members' statements that the present policy had a
mandate from the people. He did
not believe that In recent history
Canada had been given a greater
shock when it found four or five
gentlemen, because they were at the
head of the government, undertook
to reverse the whole fiscal policy of
Canada (Opposition cheers). That
was not his conception- of constitutional government.
Canada's Best Policy
He was convinced the policy for
Canada was one of moderate protection, which he deld it was unwise
to disturb. Mr. Sifton warmly upheld the British preference as a
practical preference, but there was
a limit to the extent to which he
would go in favor of cutting the tariff for British manufacturesrs In order to put back in the hands of
Britain the trade which, by the
present arrangement was transferred
to the United States. Man for man
today the people of Canada were better off than those of any other country in the world. There was practically no poverty; there was large
immigration, rapid devlopment of
resources, enormous growth of a
home market, which latter accounts
for the good prices received by farmers. The most valuable contribution to economic literature In Canada was the report of the minister
of labor upon wholesale prices for
ihe decades of 1890 to 1909. This
showed that he prices of products
sold ny the farmer Increased 35.7
per cent. This showed steady,
sound progress and a condition
which should not be disturbed. It
showed the farmer was not suffering in comparison with the urban
resident. They had a great free market in Britain, and they now proposed to divert that splendid trade
to the United States. How long
would  that market, remain open?
"They tell us the United States
is friendly today. So it is, but last
year it was holding a club over your
head, and who knows what next
year? Today the United States is
preparing to abrogate plain treaties
with tlie southern republics without
the courtesy of negotiations.
"Any day diplomatic differences
may arise between the States and
Britain—not serious, but sufficient
to lead to a change in the commercial relations of Canada.
"For the benefit, of a political
party, Sir," said Mr. Sifton, amidst

Opposition cheers,  "we are  putting
our heads into a noose."
After comparing prices to show
the Canadian farmer, on the whole,
was getting as good figures in Canada as in the States, Mr. Sifton went
on to point out that while Australia
was endeavoring to protect the meat
industry against the machinations of
the American trusts, Canada was
preparing to let down the bars for
free trade in farm products.
"The present agreement," be said,
"means  handing  the  control  of  the
grain market to Minneapolis."
A Monumental Mistake
Alter devoting the best years of
his life to upbuilding the Northwest
he could scarcely expres shis indignation when he viewed a prospect
making that magnificent country
the backyard of Chicago. Why not
tackle the subject on business principles, establish tbe chilled meat industries the same as Australia and
have cities like Chicago and Omaha
in the Northwest? With this "favored nation" arrangement nearly
every country capable of raising
farm products similar to Canada's
would be able to dump them litre.
He could not imagine what his
friends were thinking of when they
made such an arangement. It was
a monumental mistake and certainly
a case wherein the government got
in wrong. No policy would do more
to bind the Canadian provinces to
tlie adjacent states of the union than
this destroying of our commercial
independence, to secure which the
Canadian Pacific Railway had been
built and the Grand Trunk Pacific
was building. Why had Sir Wilfrid
Laurier changed his policy as an-
nounced in introducing the Grand
Trunk Pacific bill? The new conditions would fasten the grip of the
Stales on Canada. Henceforth every
future revision of the Canadian
tariff would mean Interference with
the ineterests of the States. No
sooner had Canada obtained fiscal
independence than the States brandished a club and last year threatened a surtax. We should have
stood our ground then. Tlie history
of the last forty years in Canada
hail been Ignored. Buffeted by the
States and protected by England, up
to the present we have been rather
a nuisance to Britain but now we
were strong enough to be of some
use to the Empire which gave us
our liberties, strong enough to
send men for its defence. The States
beckon and ask us to leave our path
and throw open our doors to trusts
and the organized capital of the
States. To this beckoning he would
say for his part, "Not for me."
Mr,    Clark's  Jest
Mr, Sifton took as an explanation
that "Champ" Clark was not jesting when he said reciprocity would
lead to annexation, that the treaty
would not have gone through the
House of Representatives but for Mr.
Clark as leader of the Democrats and
bis reason was that Canada was at
the parting of the ways and before
we had irrevoeaby taken the road to
consolidating and strengthening the
British Empire we should be drawn
by this treaty along the road to commercial unification with the States.
Mr. Sifton asked the House to stop
and think was it no concern of ours
before we entered into a contract
with 90,000,000 people that their
recognized learers frankly avowed
their reasons to be antagonistic to
to every national sentiment cherished by patriotic Canadians?
(cheers).
"Are we so wise, so strong as to
be able as be safe from the influence
that will be brought to bear on us?"
Can 8,000,000 say to 90,000,000,
"yes, we will take the terms, but not
pay the price. You may think you
can exact the price but we will not
pay it." That is not wise. It is not
possible. If we take the terms assuredly we shall be called upon to
pay the price.
In conclusion Mr. Sifton said,
"These resolutions in my judgment
reverse a great and successful policy
whereunder the Canadian people,
fighting against poverty, against
natural obstacles, against geographical conditions, have made their
country one of the most enviable in
the world. These resolutions show
retrogression, commercial subordination, destruction of our national
Ideals and abandonment of our
proud position as the rising hope of
the British Empire and for these
reasons have my strongest opposition."

HUGE TUNNEL BORED
World's Record Broken in Construction of Waterworks Tunnel
in  California
With the world's record broken
for rapid and low cost of construction, the boring of the great five-
mile Elizabeth tunnel, near Los Angeles, the most important feature of
the new $26,000,000 municipal water project of Los Angeles has been
completed.
It Is tbe second longest water tunnel In the United States. It pierces
the crest of the Sierra Madra range
at a point sixty-seven miles northwest of this city and has been drilled
through 26,780 feet of solid granite.
Work began at both ends of the
big bore on October 5, 1907, and
went on day and night until completion. For years the gangs at each
end have been in nerve-straining
rivalry to win the contest. The
men In the north portal had a good
lead until two weeks ago, when they
ran into water. This lost them the
contest by tbe narrow margin of less
than thirty feet, in over fiv9 miles of
excavation.

DID    U.    S.    OFFICIALS   REVEAL
SECRETS?
Senate   Culls   for   Information   Regarding Recent Contracts
for Battleships
By passing recently in the senate
of resolutions offered by Senator La
Follette, the state and navy departments must report to that body
whether naval secrets were revealed
to the Argentine Republic as an in
ducement to place with American
concerns contracts for the building
of two battleshissps. The Teolution
affecting the state department was
amended, and it will be asked to
make a report, "unless incompatible
with public interests." There were
no restrictions concerning the navy
department and the resolutions demanded specific information whether
battleship plan numbers 34 and 3C
secrets of fire control and book
specifications, all marked confidential, were revealed to Argentina or
the Bethlehem Steel Company. The
senate also wants to know whether
plans for submerged torpedo boats
were given out.
Senator Kean offered a protest to
the resolution calling for a report
from the secretary of state. This
he said, would be an unusual proceeding. Senator La Follette declared that the situation was an un
usual one and required unusual action.
"If a resolution is at all necessary," said La Follette, "It is because the department officials improperly construed the public interests and no discretion should be left
to them in such a case. If the offi
cials of either department gave a
foreign government confidential information concerning the plans for
American battleships they manifestly
showed that they have little regard
for the interests of the public and
nothing whatever should be left to
their dicretion."
Senator La Follette opposed the
insertion in the state department
resolution of the words "unless incompatible with the public Inten-
ests."
The amendment was then adopted
and the resolution was carried by a
vote of 44 to 28.

CORRECTING SURVEYS
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
New
Official   Nap   of  Bulkier Valley Comes Into
Force.
Surveyors'     Mistakes     Have     Been
Rectified Under New Ar.
rangement
At the last session of the Legislature just closed a bill was passed
affecting the official map of the
Bulkley Valley. A new map has
been adopted by the department as
official for Townships la, 2a, 3, 4, 5,
6, 7, 8 and 9, Range 5, Coast District.
In the year 1892 a survey was
made of the townships la, 2a, 8, 4,
5, 6, 7, 8 and 9, all in Range 5,
Coast District, and maps purporting
to correctly represent such survey
were compiled from the field notes
of the surveyor, the maps and field
notes being on file in the Department of Lands at Victoria. Numerous errors have been found to exist in the maps which do not properly represent the survey, or show the
true position of the monuments purported to have been planted to mark
the boundaries thereby established.
In view of the errors existing in the
old survey, It has been found advisable, in order to remove all doubts
and to secure the titles of the lands
in the townships to the parties to
whom they justly belong, that a rectification survey should be undertaken and new maps of the townships prepared. Such survey has
been undertaken and correct maps
have been compiled of all of the
townships. The newly compiled
maps so prepared have been substituted for the old official maps. All
Crown grants or certificates of title
isuued in respect of any lands situate In any of the townships, and all
other deeds and documents In respect
of any of the lands, In describing
the parcels when reference is made
to the official maps of any of the
townships, whether made, executed
or issued before or after the passing
of the new act, shall be construed as
referring to the official maps as authenticated and validated by this
act.

San Francisco shippers are rallying to the support of the California

entered the field the Pacific Mall
Company charged $23 a ton for

When the new company commenced operations it made a satisfactory rate and now the San Francisco shippers propose to stand by
the new company which has announced that they will not meet the

FRUIT  AND  RECIPROCITY
Tlie defection of an ardent Liberal like Thomas Brydon, of Saan-
icii, from the party over the question
of reciprocity indicates that the opposition among tlie business men of
the province is very strong. Mr.
Brydon is a man who would never
be accused of being easily changed
in his convictions, He has been a
determined Liberal, who was ever
ready to do all in his power to
advance the cause of that party without any thought of reward for his
allegiance to the cause. He is a
fruit grower and has studied that industry thoroughly since quitting the
city and taking to horticulture. So
thorough was his knowledge of it
that he has at different times lectured throughout the province upon
the subject of fruit growing.
He was one of the leaders in developing the shipping trade in fruits
from Victoria to the prairies and
knows just how the reciprocity proposition will effect the industry. He
is prepared to stand by the interests
of the province rather than support
a party that shows no regard for the
industries that are being built up
by small capital in the shape of
owners  of  orchards.

MILL PLANNED HERE
Largest   Company   in    Canada   Will
Locate at This
City.
Company  Has Also in View Erection
of Works at New Westminster
It is announced thac tie largest
lumber industry In Canada will establish a mill at Prince Rupert. This
company is the British Canadian
Lumber Corporation, capitalized at
$20,1)00,000. Mr. F. L. Buckley of
Vancouver, an experienced man, is
managing director of the company.
The British-Canadian Lumber
Corporation is a new company just
launched with British financiers,
Eastern Canadian and American capital behind it. They hold large timber claims in many parts of British
Columbia as well as other parts of
Canada and, it is said, control over
14,iM)0,00O,O00 feet of timber. A
large tract of spruce is owned in the
Masset district ou Queen Charlotte
Islands, as well as other valuable
limits along the coast.
The company have practically decided to erect a saw mill and pulp
mill at Prince Rupert and a large
saw mill at New Westminster on the
Fraser river. They have also In
sight the possibility of locating their
mill at Port Moody or Vancouver in
the event of their negotiations with
this city coming to naught.
The local mill will be supplied
from the northern limits held by the!
corporation and is expected to be
ready by the time the railway is
completed to fill the demands for
Prince Rupert and also to enter the
shipping business to the prairies.
Attracted by the excellent shipping facilities of New Westminster
and I lie fresh water port, the company have secured options on a site
for a large mill Within the limits of
New Westminster and are only waiting a favorable conclusion of negotiations with tin- city to close out
the deal and commence the erection
of ihe mill. This will mean the establishment of an industry in that
city employing 400 or 500 men and
of a magnitude rivalling that of the
Canadian Western Lumber Company
at Millside.
WILL  OPEN   COAL  MEASURES
Mr. L. T. Walson, who made some
valuable discoveries of coal last
summer on the divide between the
Naas and the Stlcklne Rivers, is on
his way with ton men to open up the
coal measures of ten claims be has
staked. The coal fields, according
to Mr. Watson, are less than thirty-
five miles by an air line from the
Alaskan coast. Mr. Watson is working in the interest of Mr. R. T. Elliott and associates of Victoria.
as compared with the last council.
If there was any doubt in the matter
he suggested that wtih the first
money bylaw a vote be taken on this.
As to Section 9 he did not think that
the hotel men intended to seriously
press for this being struck out.
D. McLeod
D. McLeod said in all the great
cities in which he had been he had
never seen so much preying upon
humanity as here in the late hours
of the night. If the hotel men were
nol making money they should follow the example of other business
men and get out of business if they
could not make it pay. He felt intensely with respect to Prince Ru
pert. He objected to men being
thrown out of hotels. He hoped the
bylaw be left as it was, at present
at least. He felt that the citizens
would be perfectly satisfied to have
this appealed to them for a vote.
Dr. Kergin
Dr. Kergin was in hearty accord
with the opposition to the petition,
which was before them. The request
for repealing Section 9 was not understood by the petitioners. This
clause should be kept in. Some retailers of liquor might not be as
careful as they should be not to intoxicate men. If a man was made
drunk he ought to be taken care of
in reaching home. In order that
men might be prepared to work the
following day it was wise that there
should be no late selling of liquor.
J. Y. Rochester
.1. Y. Rochester, representing the
petitioners, called attention to the
fact that the Bowser act prohibited
the sale to intoxicated persons. The
bartender was liable with the hotel
proprietor, so that the law would be
observed, be thought. There had
been a general request by business
men and others for extending the
hours to what they were originally
before the time was reduced.
Mr. Corley
Mr. Corley thought Mr. Patmore
showed lamentable ignorance as to
why the hotel men wanted this extra
hour. There were hotel men going
behind. The hour was taken away
through a political move largely. It
was impossible to get a sober man
to go home with a drunken man. He
had put men to bed who were drunk
although they did not get the drink
in his house. He did not know that
the hotel men should have to take
men home who got their drink in a
cabin or a blind pig.- How could
bona fide travellers get a drink if
the bartenders were off duty and the
keepers were not about.
Acting Mayor Smith called attention to tbe fact that the bylaw provided that the hotel keeper was only
to take care of men who were served
with liquor on the premises. If a
man came in drunk and was not
served he had not to take care of
that man.
Opinions Differ
Mr. Corley said the law did not
allow the hotel keeper to serve an
intoxicated man. Why should this
provision be In.
Mr. Patmore, while he believed
Mr. Corley and other respectable hotel men would not turn drunk men
onto the streets, there were those,
however, that would do this as was
seen by drunk men on the streets.
There were not so many blind pigs
in the city now as was suggested.
The labor men or the misiness men
he felt did not demand this. It was
the hotel men who wanted it. The
hotel men should let well enough
alone.
Mr. Rochester was sure that
drunk men appeared on the streets
who did not get their drink In tho
hotels.
Mr. McLeod suggested that ii did
not reflect credil upon ihe city
council thai liquor roukl be got outside of public bars.
Aid. Hilditch wanted lo know If it
were suggested lhat liquor was being sold by blind pigs?
Mr. McLeod suggested that perhaps tlie men bought the liquor
wholesale.
Mr. Corley explained that he had
seen drunk men who did not get it
in a licensed house. These men could
buy  wholesale  and  get  drunk,
Section  l)  Remains
Later the bylaw was considered in
committee with Aid. Kirkpatrick in
the chair.
In committee Aid. Clayton pointed
out that a difficulty might, arise
where a man came upon the hotel
premises and shortly afterwards tho
influence of the liquor served elsewhere acted upon him. The hotel
would be responsible for the man.
Aid. Smith pointed ont that unless
the man were served with liquor the
hotel keeper was not responsible.
Aid.  Hllditch thought that    while
there might be a hardship worked
upon the hotel keepers in some instances yet in the interests of humanity after hearing the arguments
put forward this section might stand.
He believed that here a large percentage of the drunkenness was due
to the fact that men bought tho
liquor wholesale and drank to excess in their cabins. These men had
to be looked after. He believed that
the hotel men might be as well expected to assist in looking after these
men as any one else.
Aid. Morrissey suggested that hotel keepers should be required to
notify the police if any man who
came upon his premises was Intoxicated. He accordingly moved In
that direction.
After full discussion it was decided to allow the section to stand as it
was.
Hours of  Closing
Aid. Hilditch felt that with respect to the hours of closing the hotel men were entitled to some consideration. The first bylaw passed
closed the bars at midnight, except
on Saturday night when it should
close at 11 o'clock. Later a bylaw
was introduced by Aid. Mobley and
the hours shortened. He did not
look upon this from the standpoint
of the hotel keepers.
This was to be a terminal city on
a transcontinental line of railroad.
They should not do anything to
make the hotels other than up-to-
date houses. It made a difference to
the traveling public found a hotel up
to date. He believed there was 35
per cent less drunkenness than in
Vancouver today. He wanted to see
the bars closed on Sunday, but he
did not see much disadvantage in
keeping open all the rest of the
time.
Aid. Morrissey felt that he was
obliged to answer the prayer of the
600 petitioners who asked for the
change.
Longer   Hours
Aid. Clayton was not interested in
the liquor traffic at all. He referred
to the fact that tbe commissioners
had not granted any saloon licenses
nor any bottle licenses and bad put
the fees as high as possible. The
license holders having such a large
fee extracted were entitled to some
consideration. The days were longer here than in some other parts.
Tlie result was that longer hours
were indulged in and citizens went
to  bed later.
Aid. Newton, as one who opposed
the Scott act, did not expect that
so soon after that vote that the
council would be asked to grant concessions to the hotel men. lie did
not approve of taking a stand for
shortening the hours in view of the
trend of public opinion in Canada
for shorter hours.
He felt that such a question might
lie referred to the people. He moved
that the clause be struck out and a
clause be. inserted calling for a plebiscite on the point. He was strongly in favor of the referendum.
Aid. Hilditch held that Aid. Newton was out of order.
Aid. Clayton thought Aid. Newton
had experienced a change of heart
since he had not supported his (Aid.
Clayton's) motion for a referendum
vote on the 45 cents an hour proposition.
Aid. Newton contended that the
wage question was an active factor
in the late campaign; that, therefore,
he felt that the council held a mandate from the people on this question.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the
hours of closing be 12 o'clock midnight each night except on Saturday,
when the closing hour shall be 11
o'clock.
The motion of Aid. Hilditch carried.
The bartender's license was reduced from $5 to $2.50 each half
year.
The bylaw was reported and
passed its third reading.

UNIVERSITY  PLANS
Minister of Education Explains the Situation Respecting the
Institution.
It  Will  Bo  Second   to  None  in  the
Country—Lessons from
Experience
Hon. W. E. Young, Minister of
Education for the Province, on the
second reading of the university bill
dealing with the acquisition of the
site, explained to the legislature at
its sitting just closed some of tho
plans in connection wtili the institution. He described the site at
Point Grey, its natural advantages
and its conveniences, The reason for
the preservation of foreshore was
for the prevention of any commercial enterprises establishing plants
along the waterfront of the university grounds, which it was desired
to preserve for the boat bouses, etc.,
in connection with the institution.
The site itself comprised 170 acres
—one of the most beautiful spots in
all of this most beautiful province
of British Columbia. The appearance of the university in its majestic
setting would fittingly mark it to
arrivals by water. Visitors must,
too, be duly impressed with the confidence shown by the government in
the province's future in thus setting
aside so beautiful a site as well as
in making so generous an endowment for the university. A sum of
$5,000 had also been appropriated
for competitive plans for the university buildings. It was not yet exactly decided what form this competition would take, whether it would be
open to all. or certain architects
well known to specialize in such
magnificent undertakings.
Site Selection
Speaking incidentally of the choice
of site, Dr. Young said the commission had travelled all over the province, had heard representations of
boards of trade and other representatives of tlie various communities,
and had returned with their report
to the government.
At the time the commission had
completed its labors he had been
handed what he had been informed
was an interim report lecomriieiid-
ing certain alternative sites. This
he had handed back to the commission secretary, at the same time asking that he retain it and asking that
the commission might complete its
work, complying with the provisions
of the act as to the selection of the
site, and recommending if not the
exact site, at all events the location
or locality. Several months later
there had been received from tlie
secretary of the commission its report, which was found to bear date
of June 28, the date also of the proffered interim report When this report was received he had shown it
as a matter of course to his chief,
the premier, and, as the lieutenant
governor was at the time out of the
city, it had then been put In the
vault, no one being advised of its
contents, and when his honor had
returned it was at once laid before
him, and the contents as soon as
possible thereafter given to the public through the medium of the press,
a fac simile of the complete report,
indeed, being printed in one of the
newspapers.
Plans for Buildings
In calling for competitive plans for
the university, tlie architect would
he instructed to provide for from 20
to 30 buildings in addition to those
which would be ererted by the various theological institutions. One
of the most Importanl of these will
be devoted to the liberal arts and
clence, with provision tor schools of
music, of nit and of commerce. The
nexl would be the agricultural college, with Bchools of forestry, of
domestic  science  and   of  veterinary
I   Intend, d  to allow  the
agrlcultun I   a to form the nu-
of the  university, as was tlie
nrai tlce In a number of the states to
outh, but  io give full attention
tanl Industry, nnd pro-
ipleti   facilities for    acquir-
li :   tin   widest and most useful edit-
on   In   all   subjects   relating    to
the agricultural  Industry,    In  addition  in  the college  there  would   be
ill.-  selection   of    the    agricultural
■  ii parts ni the province.    The    irincliial   or   these,   the
central farm, In connection with the
agricultural       college       laboratory,
would   naturally  be  located   In  close
touch  with  the university    and    its
work.    In connection with the work
of the agricultural college    It    was
hoped thai thor.   mlghl be developed
a comprehensli e scheme by which a
'"al  agrli ultural  training  mlghl
be made a ti ature of the high school
work     throughout     the     province.
There would also be at the university a stock pavilion. There would
be a college of mining, in connection
with which latter the government
was determined that there should be
secured one of the foremost faculties
identified with the university work.
Correlated Interests
There would be a college of education and teaching. It was desired
to correlate the interests of education through every branch of school
and universtiy life. There was no
use in establishing a university unless a high and healthy standard was
maintained in the schools that fed
the university. The university began in the primary grades of the
public school and the boy only completed his scholastic career when as
a man he got his university degree,
lie hoped that within a short time
there would be a law school formed.
In regard to a medical school he
took a different stand, as he did not
think that for many years to come
this province would have such a
school. At the present time it was
not necessary to have a medical
school in the province to educate
doctors. Tlie medical schools in tlie
east turned out enough physicians
for the west without having a lot of
small schools in the western prov.
inces. Then there was the practical
objection that there was not clinical
opportunities here now, with all respect to the profession, was there a
sufficient number of men to fill the
professional chairs. He hoped it
would be a long time before a school
of medicine was established in this
province. There would be a college
of dentistry and a college of engineering.
College for Women
A college for the higher education
of women would be a part of the university. In the charter of the university it was open to all, but in
addition it would have a faculty for
women. The trend of experience was
against co-education in university
work in the sense of similar training by the same teachers, but no in
conjunction in the same class. There
would be in connection with the university, too, a technical school, forestry school, lecture classes, correspondence courses.
"it is our intention to make the
university enter into the lives of the
people," said Dr. Young, "and if
they cannot come to the university
we will take the university to them
We will continue tlie university
course from the primary grade up
We will perfect and carry out what
is known as the university extension
system, and in places such as Ferni
or Rossland we will have schools
under the university authorities
manned by professors, to give the
men who cannot.attend the university the same training as if they had
come to the university buildings."
There would he a physics building, a chemistry building, a museum,
a gymnasium, a convocation hall, an
observatory, electric power house
and all other necessary buildings.
What was a gratifying feature
was tlie earnest co-operation of the
different theological colleges, which
were unanimous in support of the
university. All had signified their
intention to affiliate, put up buildings on the university site and help
to bui'd up what would be the best
university in the Dominion. Two
other groups of buildings were in
the plan, one for professors' residence and another, and most important, one for dormitories. Said Dr.
Young:
University Residence
"We want to give the students
university life in every sense of the
word, university residence with all
that It means, university comforts
and university cheapness. We will
give them something they cannot get
themselves, segregate them, endue
them with the university spirit and
make university life so choap and
comfortable that there will be no
argument for any man nol availing
himself of It. We will not have
large buildings, bul something after
the plan adoptod al Princeton and
elsewhere of division of the dorhil-
bulldlngs Into small groups under one professor, The old idea that
colli "i- Si uili'iiis arc then- for fun
is giving way in these modern times
and in British Columbia we hope to
have the Student body living together in comfortable residences.
"We hope to make the university
of British Columbia second to none.
The mandate of this legislature will
occupy our best attention and if the
legislature will grant all we ask we
will see that all its wishes are carried out. I hope at the university
congress next year to interest men
from all over the world ih our university. We may think we are an
outpost here but 1 assure you, .Air.
Speaker, thai the educationists of
the world are watching every step
we take with the utmost Interest,
and it is for us to make tlie Institution one worthy of Its endowment
and worthy of British Columbia."

Some additional particulars from
a reliable source are to hand respecting the British naval airship now
under construction at Barorw. The
is envelope constructed of a silk
similar in character to that used in
the Zeppelin, and is divided into
seven sections. Its length is given
as 510 feet, its maximum diameter
as 48 feet, and its gas capacity
706,336 cubic feet.
To each of the two sets of eight-
cylinder Woolsey engines—each engine being rated at about 200 horse
power—there are attached eight
sheet metal tanks. Each tank has
a storage capacity of 2,000 gallons
of petrol, so that the total storage
capacity  of the  tanks  when  full  is
,000 gallons. The tanks are welded together in oil-tight sections, consequently, accident or injury to one
section would Involve the loss only
of a minute fraction of the buoyancy of the airship. In consequence
of these features of her equipment,
tho lrship Is fitted with some 300
yards of aluminum piping, Her lift-
inn capacity is estimated at. 2 1 ions,
as against 16% tons, tlie lifting capacity 0 I'llie Zeppelin VIII, and her
computed speed Is 45 miles an hour
obtained from tlie three propellers
designed to run at 500 revolutions
per minute.
In order to minimize tlie weight,
tlie framework has been constructed
of the new alloy aluminum known
as "duralium," which is stated to he
both lighter and stronger than Hie
pure aluminum used in tlie construction of the German airships. From
these particulars it is evident that
the airship is designed to take long
voyages and to maintain efficiency,
even if struck during an attack. As
the tests to which all parts are be-
ng subjected are very thorough, it
is not likely that tlie ship will he
ready for her trial flight before May
next.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Mark Twain s
Witticisms
The famous humorist who recently died, was a wit before he left the
nursery. One day hie father led
him into the garden, and, pointing
to a bed of flowers that had a considerable number of weeds in it, said,
"I want you to weed out this flower
bed." Young Clemens looked at it
for a moment, and then naively enquired, "Wouldn't it be better, father, to flower out this weed bed?"
London police are not a little
proud of the compliment Mark
Twain paid them when he visited
England In 1907. "They would not
only salute me," he observed, "but
would hold up their puissant hands
and paralyze the commerce of the
world's greatest city just to let me
cross the street."
It was during this visit that a
London paper, either by accident or
design, came out on the day of his
landing  with  this  placard—
MARK  TWAIN   ARRIVES
ASCOT CUP STOLEN
This was too much for Mark. He
publicly declared that he had not got
the cup. He didn't know where it
was. He didn't want to know. All
he wanted was that his character
should be cleared at once. The sequel came when the Savage Club took
up the joke and presented the humorist with a facsimle of the cup.
Talking of this incident reminds
one of Twain's "Notice to the Next
Burglar," which he wrote on a piece
of cardboard and nailed to his front
door, after burglars bad entered his
Connecticut home and carried aff
considerable  booty.
"There is nothing but plated ware
in this house now and henceforth.
You will find it in tile dining room
over the corner by the basket of kittens. If you want the basket put
the kittens in the brass thing. Do
not make a noise, it disturbs the
family. You will find goloshes in
the front hall by that thing which
has umbrellas in it—a cheffonier, I
think they call It, or a pegola, or
something like that. Please close
the door."
Tbe humorist had something of a
tenderness   for   burglars.
Mark Twain lias not been wanting
in personal homage of humble admirers, and often a representative of
them rang his doorbell and asked
the privlege of paying his respects.
Not long since a big, good-natured
countryman—a butcher as he introduced himself—after a few minutes'
chat, asked, "Now, tell me for a
fact, are you the one that wrote all
them books?" "Truly, I am," said
Mark. "Of course you are, of
course you are," cried the earnest
fellow, "but, by George, I shouldn't
think it by your looks." Whereat
Mark was greatly tickled.
A Great Smoker
Mark Twain's passion for smoking
was, of course, well known, but it
came as a great surprise when he
confessed last autumn that he had
enjoyed forty cigars a day for twenty
years. It was a great deprivation
to him when the doctors cut his
allowance down to four a day.
"My only restriction as regards tobacco," he once remarked, "is never
to smoke more than one cigar at a
time. I seldom smoke in private. I
did once when a boy; ever since then
I have smoked publicly. I, never
smoke when asleep, and never refrain when awake. As for drinking,
my rule is when others drink I like
to help, otherwise I remain dry."
When Mark Twain was a young
and struggling newspaper writer in
San Francisco, a lady of his acquaintance saw him one day wtih a
cigar box under his arm, looking in
at a shop window. "Mr. Clemens,"
she said, "I always see you with a
cigar box under your arm. I am
afraid you are smoking too much."
"It isn't that," said Mark Twain,
"I'm moving again."
He once had a sly dig at Andrew
Carnegie, with whose munificence he
was greatly impressed. "My dear
Carnegie," lie wrote, "I see by the
papers that you are prosperous. I
want to get a hymnbook. It costs
$1.60. If you will send me this
hymnbook I will bless you, God will
bless, and It will do a great deal of
good.—Yours truly, . Mark Twain.
P. s.—Don't send me the hymnbook;
send me the $1.50."
In his autobiography Mark Twain
has placed It on record that he was
"a sickly and precarious and tiresome and uncertain child," and lived
mainly on allopathic medicines for
the first seven years of his life. "I
don't think I nedeed them," he said,
referring to his childhood during a
speech on hish seventeenth birthday.
"It was for economy; my father took
a drug store for a debt, and it made
cod-liver oil cheaper than the other
breakfast foods.    We had nine bar
rels of it, and it lasted me for seven
years. Then I was weaned. The
rest of the family had to get along
with rhubarb and ipecac and such
things because I was the pet. I had
it all. I was the first Standard Oil
Trust."
Talking of speeches at a public
dinner on one occasion Mark Twain's
name was associated with the toast
of literature by an orator who, in
the course of his speech, eloquently
referred to Homer, Milton, Shakespeare, and—Mark Twain! The humorist, in rep'y, thanked the speaker
for his allusions, and excused himself for acknowledging them at
greater length by saying: "Homer is
dead; Milton is dead; Shakespeare is
dead, and I am not feeling any too
well myself!"
Mark Twain gained a reputation
as a humorist in the days when he
was writing for newspapers, and a
comedian once offered him five dollars for half a dozen good jokes.
Mark refused on the ground that If
he were found with five dollars on
him he would be suspected of stealing the money, and if the comedian
werde discovered with six good jokes
he would be arrested for theft.
Mark even made a joke of his
marirage. When he made his trip
on the Quaker City, which resulted
in that world famous book, "The Innocents Abroad," he was fascinated
with the ivory miniature of the
sister of a Mr. Langdon which hung
In the stateroom. On returning to
America he sought out the original
of the miniature. The story goes
that the lady refused him three
times, but at last consented.
For a wedding gift the father of
the bride bought and furnished a
handsome bouse for the couple in
Buffalo. This gift was kept a secret
from Twain, who, when he saw it
after tbe marriage ceremony, was
much moved by the generosity of
the donor. Finally, with tears in
his eyes, he said: "Mr. Langdon,
whenever you are in Buffalo, if it's
twice a year, come right up here and
bring your bag with you. You may
stay over night if you want to, and
it shan't cost you a cent."
recently when at a meeting of fifty
representative ministers and laymen
of the Presbyterian churches of Toronto and other centres, an organization, to be known as the Presbyterian Association for the Federal
Union of the Churches, was formed.
The movement is the outcome of decided dissatisfaction with the proposed basis for the organization of
the Protestant churches and if hopes
are realized similar organizations
will soon spring up in the Anglican,
Methodist, Baptist and Congregational churches. The view that obtained among those present was
unanimously in favor of a federation
of all the Protestant churches that
would make for the solution of the
social problems of our large cities,
that would prevent overlapping In
the home and foreign mission fields
and that would stand for the ushering in of the Kingdom of Christ as
the present movement for organic
unity, among three denominations,
merely, could not.

Initial Steps Taken Which Will Result in Unifying of the Protest-

A movement which will undoubtedly take rank as one of the most
important in the history of the
churches  of     Canada was  Initiated
A rather remarkable international
character is at present in Victoria
in the person of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, a
prominent Chinese reformer and
agitator, and he is utilizing his stay
in the capital city by preaching the
gospel of reform to the Chinese
colony.
Dr. Sun Yat Sen has had an interesting and adventurous career, the
latter part of which he has spent as
a fugitive in many countries as well
as In secret in his own. He is a
man whose doctrines are regarded
by the Chinese government as dangerous to the state, and therefore
they have placed a pretty stiff premium on his head. On one occasion in London, about sixteen years
ago, he was seized by the Chinese
diplomatic service and dragged to
the embassy, wliere he was incarcerated pending his shipment to to
China to meet the fate which the
law had prescribed for him. His
escape from that harrowing predicament was due to the British authorities who hearing that he was being
kept a prisoner demanded that he be
released.
Tokio, Japan, also proved too
small to hold him safely. Five years
ago he carried on active work among
the Chinese who were studying there

Earl Grey's Rifles will have a place
in the contingent sent from Canada
to represent this part of the Dominion of His Majesty on the occasion.

school house on Second avenue.
Sergeant Leek is a native of the

since he has been there and the present opportunity affords an excellent
chance to visit his friends.
The conditions which were imposed In connection with the choice
of the men to represent the different regiments and units at the coronation  included the following:
No application from any one who
has already taken part in former
contingents on such great occasions
as the Jubilee of the late Queen Victoria or the Coronation of the late
King Edward will be considered.
Preference is to be given to those
who have served in the field.
They must at present be included
In the service roll of the unit to
which they belong.
They must have completed the full
militar ytraining in 1908, 1909, and
1910; except in the case of corps
organized since those dates.
They must be well set up, of suitable height and physique, thoroughly trained and certified by their
commanding officers to be of "exemplary" character.
They must be examined and be
passed fit by the medical officer,
subject to confirmation by the principal medical officer, before embarkation.
All N. C. O.'s and men selected
higher rank on the contingent, they
will receive pay at the rate author
ized for the rank they hold.

HOODOED STEAMERS
A hoodoo seems to he on the British
steamer Queen Alexandria during
her vielt to this coast. Reports
come from San Francisco that she
arrived at. that port, in distress, with
her hull badly strained and twenty
feet of water in her hold. When
leaving the Columbia River last Saturday laden with lumber for China
she struck the bar a number of
times with great force, and shortly
after getting clear Captain McDonald found that she was leaking badly,  one  thousand  feet    of    lumber
were thrown overboard and the
pumps were worked constantly, until
the vessel made San Francisco harbor.
While in Vancouver a short time
ago the Queen Alexandra lost one of
her officers, who was killed by fall
ing and striking a fender pile. While
she was discharging at Powell River
her derrick was shattered beyond repair, and she was forced to return
with a large portion of her Powell
River cargo still aboard.

WHALERS START WORK
From the yards of the Akers Ship
building Company, of Christiana,
Norway, after a passage of 98 days
the steam whalers White, Blacc and
Green, have reached Victoria and
within two hours of their arrival
their powerful winches and harpoon
guns were being mounted and the
steamers made ready to start whaling. The winches reached Victoria
by the steamer Bellerophon and the
gear, which came overland, arrived
the day before the whalers. The
new steamers show some improvements oevr the former whalers, but
the general design is the same. They
have more space on the deck, the
galley and messroom being under
the bridge, and the deckhouses do
not extend across from rail to rail,
but leave -passageways. Each is 9 6
feet long, 18 feet beam and 9 feet
deep with tonnage of 37 tons,
The steamers William Grant and
Germania are now at work off the
west coast, and the Orion and St.
Lawrence are being made ready to
start work, probably leaving about
the end of this week. The White,
Black and Green will be ready to
start a few days later and the business of hunting whales off the coast
stations of the Canadian Northern
Fisheries Company will be on in full
swing before many days have passed.

"There's no use trying to deny
it," remarked Mrs. DeFlatt, "this
Is the worst cook we've had yet.
There positively isn't a decent thing
to eat on the table." That's right,"
rejoined DeFlatt. "But," continued
his wife, "there's one thing in her
favor. She can't be beat when it
conies to washing. "Pity we can't
eat the washing," sighed the hungry
husband.
