RAILWAY SERVICE
STARTS TOMORROW
First Regular Train Schedule Will be Put Into Force at
Noon—Twice a Week Passengers Will be Carried to End of Track—Beginning of the
Regular Accommodation Over the
First 100 Miles.
Tomorrow at noon tbe first 100
miles of the Grand Trunk Pacific
will be opened to passenger service.
At one o'clock the first train will
leave the company's yards at the
foot of Centre street for Copper
River, where for the meantime there
will be made the transfer from the
train to the river steamers for Hazelton'and intermediate points. The
opening of the service cuts off 100
miles from the river steamer service, making the distance to be covered by these less than one-half
what It has been.
The permission to use the line in
the way of a regular service came
rather more suddenly than the officials had expected. The railway commission gave permission and following that the leave was granted the
local head, General Superintendent
Mehan, to provide for a service. No
time was lost by Mr. Mehan and his
officials in making, ready and
Wednesday was fived as the day for
starting.
Road in Good Shape
The road is in first-class condition
as was proved by the run made with
Charles M. Hays, the president, and
his party a few days ago. The run
was made from the end of the steel,
over 100 miles to Prince Rupert,
from 4:15 to 0:30 with several stops
along the route. For about half of
the way the road is capable of al-
lowin ga speed of 40 miles an hour,
according to the officials. This
speed will not be attained, however,
?n.4Ji<? regular service, a much slower time being deemed wise.
For the present the intention is
to leave here Wednesdays and Saturdays  after  the  steamers  of    the
company reach here from the south.
The time of leaving will be 1 o'clock
which will allow ample time for the
transfer of passengers and perishable freight. Copper River, the point
of transfer from the train to the
river, boats wi 1 be reached at 9:20
in the evening. On the return run
the trains will leave Copper River
at 9 in tlie morning on Thursdays
and Sundays reaching Prince Rupert
at 5':20 in the evening and thus giving connection with the company's
steamers southbound the next morning.
Will Make Connections
According to this schedule there
will be ample opportunity afforded
travellers who come from the south
to make tbe trip up the river by
rail connecting with the river boats
and proceeding to Hazelton. It has
been arranged that (he steamers at
Copper River will make close connections with the trains, so that
travellers will not be inconvenienced.. They will be able to go on
board the steamers and get their
meals and berths at once.
This  is  necessary  in view  of  the
fact that at the transfer point as yet
there is not accommodation provided
in the way of hotels, etc.
Mixed Service
The service out of here will be a
mixed service under the charge of
the construction department, at present. There will in addition to the
freight carried be a baggage car,
accommodation for second-class passengers and also a first-class day
coach attached. The train will in all
respects be a standard one and the
MACADAMIZE STREETS
Rock Crusher is Expected in a Few Days
and Will be Put to
Work.
Coating  of   Stone   Dressing  Will   lie
Put    on    Graded
Roads
The city council will improve the
newly graded streets by putting on
them a dressing of crushed rock, instead of the planking as originally
intended. This is to be done on the
recommendation of the city engineer. The rock crusher has been
shipped and an engine has been purchased locally, it to be put in shape
for use. Some hard rock on Third
avenue, which the owner wanted to
dump in the street will be taken if
owner wishes, for macadam work
and crushed. It is the intention to
put a coating three inches thick at
the sides and reaching nine inches
in thickness in the centre of the
street.
The opinion of the city solicitor as
to the right of the city under the
local improvement proposition to put
in this covering as a part of the
work was given in a letter to the
engineer. Mr. Peters was of opinion that it could be done legally,
which solved the question.
Aid. Kerr stigestetl that it might
be advisable not to have the plank
removed to the city yard but to have
it  used  for sidewalks.
The acting mayor, Aid. Hilditch,
pointed out that there was no decision yet on the point of how the
sidewalks were to  be put in.
Aid. Newton thought the city
should provide some sort of sidewalk along both sides of the completed streets.
Aid. Hilditch, after spine further
discussion agreed to have the streets
committee go into this question and
report  at  next  meeting.
(Continued on Page Five.)
FAVOR STATION WORK
Question of Awarding Small Contract
on Street Comes up for
Discussion.
It Is Finally Agreed to Have the Improvement Done in
This Way
At the council meeting last evening the question of awarding a contract for a small remaining piece of
work in the vicinity of Park Place
came up for discussion on the report
of the streets committee. It was
proposed to give it to Mr. Batinlne,
who had formerly had a contract
there.
Aid. Newton believed that with a
public works department the city
should do its own work. Some of
the best citizen workers had had to
leave the city. It was a great mistake to hand over the large parcels
of work to contractors who brought
in the poorest classes of labor which
had resulted in a lot of the trouble.
Aid. Douglas said he coincided
with Aid. Newton.
Aid. Kerr explained the position.
He said Batinlne had been delayed
on hiB contract because the city
changed the grade. Mr. Batinlne
and bis friends were residents of the
city. They were really station men
and should be encouraged.
Aid. Newton sa'd he did not know
the men. He had not changed his
opinion. He was against the work
being done other than under the
public works department.
Aid. Smith said he approved of
station work. It was the best system that could be employed. He
favored the award being made to
these men  on this principle.
Aid. Newton was agreeable to station work and in view of Aid.
Smith's announcement as to the situation, he withdrew objections.
The matter was referred back to
the streets committee.

VESS0VICH IS FREE
No Evidence to Connect Him With the
Rioting in Kelly's
Cut.
He  Is  Discharged  on  Conclusion of
the Crown's Case at Victoria
(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, June 13.—A number
of Prince Rupert police constables
followed one another into the witness box at the assize court sitting
on Monday to identify thirteen men
charged with rioting and unlawful
assembling at Prince Rupert on
April 6 last, but failed to identify
Nick Vessovich as being concerned
in the riots.
At the close of the crown case,
Vessovich was accordingly discharged. {
W. E. Williams, on the close of
the crown case briefly told the jury
he would call witnesses to prove in
several instances that the accused
were not present at the riot and
that others, who were there were
not taking part In the riot.
RKI'IRING FROM SERVICE
(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, June 13.—It is
probable when Sir Wilfrid Laurier returns from London, Col.
White, comptroller of the Royal
Northwest Mounted Police, will

service.
Worthy  Example
M. M. Stephens & Co. have set a
good example to other firms interested in the welfare of Prince Rupert in the matter of bringing to
the public facts concerning the city.
In conjunction with a circular letter sent out periodically by the firm
appears several printed pages of Information dealing with this city.
Facts given in a very brief form appear.   The effect should be good.

MENACE OF MORMONS
When the proposition to provide
$150 for the entering of an appeal
against the decision of Mr. Justice
Clement with reference to the Prudhomme license came up before the
council last evening objections were
raised by Aid. Douglas.
Aid. Douglas said he objected to
(his. This was not a case to appeal.
He knew as much about it as any
one. He had followed it from the
very first.
Aid. .Morrissey supported this aspect. He said that he did not think
tha't there should be a vote for that
purpose. The courts had declared
that the license should be granted
and it was not for the city to appeal.
He protested against this. If the
commissioners failed it was the
province that had a right to bear
the expense. It might be a simple
matter to appeal but if by the stubbornness of the defendant, who
who might lose, this went to the extent of carrying the appeal to the
highest court it might be a very
costly affair.
Aid. Newton did not see this in
the same light as Aid. Morrissey.
He was not there to apologize for
the license board. He would not
care to stand by all the actions of
the board. There was not independence enough by the members of the
board. He realized that if the duties of a license board were to carry
out the statutes of British Columbia
there must be a strict living up to
the laws In that respect. For the
protection of the temperance sentiment, he felt that the fullest power
of the license board should be exerted. This latest move meant that
a judge of the court presumed to say
how the laws should be administered. Mr. Prudhomme had, he felt,
been injudicious, had perhaps deserved all he got. He would like to
see Mr. Prudhomme get what was
just. He did not favor an appeal as
against Alex Prudhomme, but he
voted for the approval in order to
assert the right of the city license
commissioners to see that the law is
enforced. He favored the city spending a little money to reestablish an
authority that had been taken from
it. He would be in favor of billing
the provincial government with the
costs of reasserting its position.
Aid. Morrissey was opposed to any
whitewashing. He referred to the
petition circulated. He referred to
the history of the move and contended that as the majority of the license commissioners was appointed
by the provincial government that
therefore, the government should
pay the expenses.
Aid. Newton felt that if the authority of the license commissioners
was not maintained they would go
back to the blind pig regime.
The motion carried, Aid. Douglas
and Aid. Morrissey voting nay.

R. L. BORDEN ON TOUR
The steamer Prince Albert, which
arrived here at noon today brought
W. G. McMorris, of Vancouver, the
head of the British Pacific Coal
Company, which is operating on
Graham Island, opening up the
measures there with the purpose in
view of supplying the needs of this
place.
Mr. McMorris left again this afternoon by the Cetriana, which happened to he in port, for Vancouver.
He is in great haste and will spare
no time in returning to the city and
again making for the coal fields.
The result of this work for the
past two or three weeks has led him
to the assurance that the coal exists
in much larger quantity and in better shape for mining than he had expected. This is borne out by his
two experts, Messrs. Archibald and
Reid. As a result of the exploratory
work, it has been decided to put an
expert engineer on the work at once
(o locate the position of the permanent works and begin the sinking of
the slope at a point which he will
decide as the best to select. This
will mean the earlier production of
coal In quantity and in consequence
shipments will be received here
sooner than was at first expected:
Alex Faulds, M. E., of Vancouver,
will come nortli with Mr. McMorris
and will be entrusted with the work
of opening up  the permanent mine.
At present the workers on the
ground have twenty feet of coal In
the veins exposed. One of these is
six feet in width and the quality is
reported excellent. It has been
opened up for a distance of 200 feet
along the face of the vein.
The measures have opened out
much more quickly than was expected, hence the haste with which
Mr. McMorris has started for the
south to get the engineer to pass on
the permanent works.

(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, June 13.—The menace
of Mormonism to Canada was emphasized at the Presbyterian General
Assembly yesterday which went on
record for* an active campaign
against it. The matter came up on
the report of a special committee
which was to give special attention
to this work during the present year
and bring in recommendations at the
next general assembly as deemed
wise.
D. C. McDonald, of Victoria, who
is interested in land in the interior,
is in the city.
Captain Thomas Smith, for some
time jailor at the city lockup, was
found dead in his bed at the New
Knox Hotel yesterday morning. His
death was due to heart failure in the
opinion of Dr. Reddie, who exlr.ined
the body, and in consequence of the
doctor's finding the coroner decided
there was no need of an inquest.
The funeral will take place tomorrow at 12:30 from Haynor's Undertaking Parlors, where the body now
rests. Although not identified with
the local Masonic lodge. Captain
Smith had been a member of the
order. Tsimpsean Lodge will therefore look after the funeral arrangements and will attend in a body.
Of Captain Smith little is known
locally. He has lived here for a
considerable time, occu;eving a cabin
on the reserve opposite the provincial government buildings. He is
probably aDout 60 years of age.
In his younger days he had followed the sea, sailing out of the old
land and also from Australia, where
he lived some time trading with India and other Oriental ports. He
has a family living in Australia, it is
believed, but little is known of them.
About Thursday Captain Smith
went off duty at the station and had
not been about since then. His failure to appear at the hotel led lo the
opening of the room on Monday
morning when be was found dead in
his  bed.

Has  Gone   South
Mayor Manson left this morning
for the south for the purpose or
meeting the executive council in
eonnection with the agreement which
has been arrived at between the city
and the Grand Trunk Pacific. The
government is of necessity a party
to the agreement. Mayor Mansnn
has arranged to meet tlie government Immediately upon arrival when
he hopes to have the matter settled
as far as the government is concerned, and return by the steamer
Saturday  morning.
What was undoubtedly intended
to have been a murder and suicide
was prevented on Saturday by the
fact that a revolver in the hand of
Homer Wood was not. well aimed.
As a result Wood is recovering from
a scalp wound self-inflicted with the
revolver and awaits arrest upon his
recovery. Alex Mathieson, who was
shot at was practically unhurt except for some bruises he got as he
escaped from his assailant at the
Cold  Storage plant.
The shooting took place at the
Cold Storage building at Seal Cove
about noon on Saturday. That the
assailant was actuated in some way
by jealousy is apparently proved by
a letter found on him which was to
have been sent to his wife in San
Francisco. The letter reads:
"EILEEN: —
"This is a message from the dead,
for I am just going lo kill Alex
Mathieson, and then myself. Let
this be a lesson to you. Give the
baby to the old man. That is best.
"HOMER."
Wood fired three shots at Mathieson as the latter appeared on the
foundations of the building there.
His aim was bad, however, and none
took effect but landed in the walls
of  the  building  nearby.
lie then turned Ihe revolver upon
himself, the shot tearing a bad
wound in the side of his head, but
not proving fatal.

Godson from Ihe city went down hy

A  BLOT ON   DIAZ
Introduction   of   Peonage  System   in
Mexico Lessoned His
Influence.
This  Has  Had the  Effect of Counteracting Much of the Good
Done  by   Ex-President
Nothin gthe future has in store
for President Diaz can rob hi in Of
his right to be considered the great
developer of Mexico. He found the
country in a barbarous state; he
leaves it a modern nation, nnd its
presidents for a thousand years to
come must build on the deep foundations he has laid. Diaz's greatest
servile lo Mexico was the bringing
in of foreign capital to fertilize the
land; ami the greatest blot on his
memory, the peonage system, is due
to the demands of this foreign capital to earn handsome dividends on
the money invested, Had Diaz been
a greater man he would have yielded to these demands when they were
just, and would have refused to
yield to them when they affected
the liberty of hapless Mexican laborers, who were converted into veritable slaves by the exorbitant requirements of foreign concesslonuaries.
Porflrio Diaz heleives that "peace
hath her victories not less renowned
than war," and he believed also that
peace must have her sacrificial victims. No doubt he could earnestly
argue that true patriotism in .Mexico
demanded the lives of tens of thousands of Mexican people every year,
and that for them to perish on the
great tobacco and henequen plantations was as necessary to the commercial prosperity of the nation as
was the death of soldiers on the
field of battle. President Diaz's
great courtesy and kindliness to
English-speaking and other foreigners saved him from the pen of the
muckraker until the last year or'so.
Adventuring authors who penetrated
Mexico have been deftly steered
round in a circle of civility from one
aspect of the benevolent despot to
another. Their eyes have been fixed
on Mexico's wonderful material development, and they have been blind
to the underlying horror of slavery,
upon which so much of it rests.
Not so with John Kenneth Turner,
as the title of his recently issued
book, "Barbarous Mexico," suggests.
Mr. Turner went to Mexico on a
muckraking expedition, representing
himself as a capitalist desirous of investing money. He was thus enabled to approach government officials in a way impossible for au
avowed journalist, and to gather
material for a powerful indictment
of the peonage system. The first
victims of the demand for dividends were the Laqui and Maya Indians, who had the ill luck to live
near the rich henequen plantations
of Yucatan, and the tobacco plantations of Oaxaco. These Indians had
no particular desire to earn a living
as laborers, much preferring to support themselves in their own primitive fashion by hunting but as their
labor was desired by the plantation
owners the Indians were forced Into
rebellion. They were declared outlaws, (heir lands forfeited, and as
many of them as were not killed
were sentenced to labor ou the
plantations.
Bui the supply of Indians was not
great enough to meet the demand
for cheap labor, because in some districts, notably the. aVlley Xaciona] in
Oaxaco, which is popularly called
Death Valley, the mortality is greater, probably, than in any other area
of equal size on Hie. face of the
earth. Mr. Turner declares thai 96
per cenl of the laborers perish within ee year, ami since 15,000 are recruited every twelve months, ihe
drain mi the labor market may l.<■
Imagined . it is far ie,ee great to be
supplied ley the Indian population,
ami see the concessionaires were
obliged io nun m the Mexicans
themselves. They found a few thousand laborers among Ihe eriiieineils
lodgeed in Ihe jails throughoul the
country, imt their numbers were a
mere drop in the bucket. Thelgreal
bulk of the laborers, Mr. Turner
says, are Mexicans, whose only
crimes are poverty and friendliness.
Many of them are lured away by no
other medium than an extravagantly
worded newspaper advertisement,
promising high wage's to laborers. A
man applies for a job to an agent
of one of the concessionaries In the
Oity of Mexico or some other large
centre of population. He Is given
$5 of advance money, and becomes
instantly indebted to the corporation. Until hie can refund the
money he is virtually a slave, and
the whole armed force of the state
can  be  turned  against  him   if necessary.
He is carted off to a plantation
and set to work; he is obliged to
buy all his supplies from his employers at' such exorbitant prices that he
is never out of debt, and remains a
prisoner until death cancels the
bond. Those who are not entrapped
through a newspaper are secured
through the connivance of local justices of the peace, who are paid so
much a head for every laborer they
can supply. A man is arrested on a
nominal charge of vagrancy, and is
spirited away to the plantations
without trial or any otheer formality. If for no other reason than
the peonage system the revolt
agalnsl Diaz would seem (o have
been justified.

I GRAND TRU
TOWNSITE
ELLISON
The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
ownership.
ra
SEE THE OFFICIAL MAP.—The
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite in Britisii Columbia.    Does that start you thinking?
iffl
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact is a very important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent, in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the bub
ef the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific,
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
Investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were doing when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
—o-
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity oi Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial cen-
ter of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
| about  will  only  be  feeders  to     the
'city   and   port   of   ELLISON.       The
Gland   Trunk   Pacific   has   put   its
' official  stamp   on   Ellison.     Do  yon
believe the company will do as much
for   townsites  owned   by  individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders  are  joint   owners?     If   you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison.   If
you desire to make a permanent Investment, or merely to make a little
quick   money,   you   must  decide   for
yourself right now.    Do you propose
i to  follow  the    individual     townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway Company.
 o —
STUDY   THAT   MAP.—If  you   desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter)
is full of hurrah aud red fire.    He I
must enthuse  investors  of the  mail!
order  class  with  his  wares.     ELLISON is in the Missouri class.    Therefore,   I   am   not   telling   any   fairy
tales about it.    I  am  making statements  that  can  be  readily  verified.
should put your money into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Giantl Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
money.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—It is not
likely the Grand, Trunk Pacific
will have any other to'wnslte in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not inteiested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with the exception of ELLISON.
STUDY     THAT      MAP.—If      you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,     then     you
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. \'ou may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but tbe center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is   now   being   opened   up,   and   for
which Ellison will be the shipping-
point both by rail and water. Tho
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of tlie town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks In building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
STUDY THAT MAP.—You will
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert town»ite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
STUDY THAT MAP.—ROGERS'
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and .,j.i>0 for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the
balance on easy terms;  no interest.

CANADIAN UNITY
j. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
In all the history of Canada there
never has been a time, says the
Hamilton Spectator, when the element of unity was more essential
than at the present time. While always it is needful, today it is imperative, if we are to safeguard the
interests and the future of this
young and growing nation.
We have always been peculiarly
subject to the temptation of division. Geographically, we are like
the man whose length was such that
he declared his feet became frozen
before his head found it out. It Is
difficult to keep any sensitiveness of
connection between British Columbia and New Brunswick. The average mind has not yet developed a
transcontinental range.
Yet is this consciousness absolutely essential to Canadian unity
and progression. Until this range
has been developed there can be no
real Canada, and the man who Is
unable to compass the span Is not
fitted to become a real Canadian.
The blood and sensitiveness of union
must go alike through all Ihe provincial members of the national
body before It Is able to make effective progress as an associated entity.
In this, then, we should adopt as
our watchword ."Under all, Canadian; above all, Canada." The Nova
Scotian and the British Columbian
are alike Canadians, in spite of the
divisions of distance and the differences of character and environment.
And above all their aims to advance
their own sectional interests, must
rise tbeir loyalty to the one, Canada.
Religiously, also, we have had
our serious divisions. What should,
by its very nature, bind' us all together into a spiritual unity has had
the effect in Canada of creating a
gulf of difference and prejudice that
has more than once threatened the
peace and solidity of the Dominion.
It is inevitable that we should for
a generation or more at least be divided into the Catholic and Protestant divisions. Although each year
more men are giving up their religious  affiliations,   it   is   more   than
dians  will  for  some  time longer  be
divided  by the creedal bar.
And this may be, and without
harm to the nation, If we remember
the fundamental unity of the Canadian bond. Whatever our form of
faith, we are under it all Canadians,
citizens of the same country, creators
of the one destiny, members of the
same Canadian family. And above
all, our sectarian claims we must
put the claims of Canada upon our
loyalty and love. "Under all, Canadian;  above all, Canada."
We have also allowed ourselves to
be politically divided in such a way j
that prejudice is more forecful than e
principle, and oldtime rancor more
a determinate factor than newtime
reason. It is inevitable and entirely
right that we should form political
parties for the advancement of certain principles and policies. So far
as can be seen, there will always be
party divisions.
But there conies a point in party-
ism wliere more is considered than
the issue at stake. Truth and justice are swerved by the bias of party
loyalty. The legislation initiated Is
judged by Its Initiator, rather than
by its real merit and promise. And
then when Liberal faces Conservative as Grit and Tory, the chances
are thnt the real right will be obscured  in  the dust of conflict.
At any cost or effort, we must
learn to rise above such sectional
partylsm. However long our forebears may have been good Conserva-
times or good Liberals, it is absolutely essential that in the moment
of decision concerning our national
policy, as in these very days, we
shall be able to realize that whatever political lines may divide, us,
under them all Is the fact that above
all Canadians, and that above all
other considerations we must, place
the Interests of Canada. Unless we
do that, we have not developed the
soul stuff out of which national
greatness is made. "Under all,
Canadian;   above  all,   Canada."
Moreover, there is the division of
nationality that more and more
threatens us In these growing years.
Through our gates are coming men
from every land, bringing with them
the customs and the characters of
lands foreign und alien.    There per-
likely   that   the   majority

not packed in an assortment of prejudices along with their household
belongings. Hatred dies hard,, and
usually slumbers through a generation or two before it succumbs.
To these people Canada must be
more than a place and a name. It
must be a nation, a life, a motherland. Among the many races that
have come into Conadian territory
there must be made to run the one
strong bond of a common unity as
Canadians. Racial distinctions must
yield to Canadian unity. We are
here less to continue the divisions
of the past than to foster the union
of the future.
In the western provinces are coming thousands ol Americans from
over the line. They have found it
more profitable to take up land In
the Canadian nortli. Beit If they still
retain an American bias, and care
for Canada only for its greater
wealth of promise or reward, then it
is not quite sure that their coming
is a matter of congratulation.
Our fundamental duty is to forget
our differences and develop our
unty. Wherever chance may have
given us birth, and whatever the
associations that cling io us, we are
true citizens only when we accept
the spirit of the cry, "Under all,
Canadian;  above all,  Canada!"

is Canada's Imperishable glory, and
n list never be impugned in the in-
torests of any Imperial cause. Mr.
Foster says:
"A bargain lias been made with
another legislature, and that legislature has to be consulted before
any change can be made. Obviously
the power of a legislature to deal
with its own tariff in ils own country Is no light thing to be bartered
in ; blind pool. We contend that
better results can be obtained by Independent action. We do not relish
transfer of any part of our powers
from Ottawa to Washington."
Sir Roper Lethbrldge, ex-M. P.,
also makes a powerful argument
against such an agreement in the
course of which he quites a member
of the Britisii ministry, Hon. E. S,
Montagu, under-secretary for India,
son of the eminent Jewish financier
and philanthropist, the late Lord
Swathllng, better known as Sir Samuel Mantague. In a book on Cnn-
ada, which was published In 1904,
after a visit to the Dominion, Mr.
Montague stoutly opposed reciprocity, declarln gthat Canada waa grow-
ing so strong that she soon would be
abb' to dictate terms to the United
States,  and  adde:     "It  would   be ai

IMMEDIATE  WORK
In connection with the agreement
reached between the city council
and tlie Grand Trunk Pacific there
have been some attempts in the
small circle of opposition that has
developed to represent that work
will not commence on the undertakings agreed to hy the company until
after the legislature meets and approves of ihe agreement. Nothing
can be farther from the intention of
the company, according to President
Hays and the other officials who visited here. The commencement of
work will depend only upon the city
endorsing the agreement.
The city solicitor, Fred Peters,
K. C, also gave the council assurance that there was absolutely nothing in such a contention but that the
legislature would pass such a bill in
a formal way in the very first days
of the session. Mr. Peters is an old
parliamentarian himself and readily
realizes that this is but a formal act
by the legislature.
When the provincial government
signs the agreement the assent of
that body is given to the agreement.
As part owners of the townsite they
are made parties to the agreement.
After assenting to it there can be
no fear that the government will a
few months later do anything that
will mean countermanding what is
done now. The government will
have to see the bill through the
house which is an assurance that it
will go through.
The railway officials have stated
that they will not wait for the legislature's formal sanction, but will
start as soon as the city endorses
the agreement.
It is therefore essential that <u>
early appeal to the electorate he obtained so that there may be no delay.
The clearing of the location for the
drydock and the works to be built in
connection with them will require
the removal of an immense amount
of rock and the extension of a long
line 'if wharfage. This rock work
will call for the employment of a
large force. Local officials of the
company realizing exactly what this
means state that there will be no
trifling with the undertaking. Tho
work will he rushed and to do so
will require a large force of men.
It will represent a heavy expenditure
until completed.
CANARTAN-MADE  OOODS
There has been some criticism in
the south over (he purchase by the
Grand Trunk Pacific of about eight
million feel of lumber in tlie United
States instead of buying in Canada.
The situation does not appear to be
clearly understood anil the criticism
when all the facts are known loses
all its force, From a local standpoint there will he a tendency to
land the Grand Trunk Pacific that it
took ihe course it did in the matter
as the reason back of it was a desire
to hurry forward the work on this
Pacific coast portion of the line.
The lumber purchased is to he
used in constructing snow sheds on
the first 100 miles of the road out
of  Prince  Rupert.
Local citizens will readily understand that thin work must not be
delayed a single day if the best results are. to follow the operating nf
this road. Lust winter revealed the
fact that the sheds must he put up
at once If the line is to be kept open
nil winter. To allow the snow to
get down again on tlie line this winter as it did lasl, will have very
serious results.
This spring the situation was not
so badly affected, as a regular service bad not been started. Next
winter and spring, however, there
will be a very considerable local
trade. The line will be open to Hazelton without doubt. To stop up
traffic for weeks is something that
the Grand Trunk Pacific cannot afford to have happen. The city of
Prince Rupert and northern British
Columbia cannot afford to have such
a handicap put upon development.
The Grand Trunk Pacific has no
intention of allowing it, and accordingly decided early this spring to
have the line put In shape to guard
against obstacles of this kind. It
was decided lo order eight million
feet of timber for tlie sheds and this
was to be delivered steadily throughout the early summer months. It
could not be delayed.
The purchase of the lumber was
lint in the bands of Superintendent
McNiCholl, of this city, formerly purchasing agent on tlie coast. Those
who know .Mr. McNlcholl will readily
understand that, realizing the situation as he does, he was not going to
take any risk of the company being
caught this winter in a fix.
When tenders were invited for the
timber the conditions were clearly
slated. The time of delivery was
fixed and it was understood that
there should be no exeuse taken for
non-compliance.
Canadian mills were all loo busy
with the prairie trade for any one of
them to accept the conditions as to
delivery. The tender of the United
States mill was taken because the
lumber was assured as asked for. At
present the first consignment is on
the way and the remainder Is to follow steadily.
The Grand Trunk Pacific did not
decide the matter upon a question of
cost  but upon terms of delivery.
It is gratifying indeed to know
that Canadian mills are so busy with
the markets of the prairies that they
can afford to let such a contract as
this one go by. If the Grand Trunk
Pacific were passing over the Canadian mills because they were Canadian mills or even because the price
happened to be a little dearer, we
would feel called upon to join in
condemning such a course. When
the award was made in order that
there should be no delay in getting
the line in first-class shape to handle
business out of here, we will be but
voicing public sentiment when we
give approval to the act.
Prince Rupert can afford no more
delays than are absolutely essential
in the completion of the Grand
Trunk Pacific or any part of it. It
is gratifying to know that the company is not going to take any chance
on not having a line kept open from
here and the continuance of such a
policy on Ihe part of the officials
will be endorsed here.

News of the Province
VANCOUVER—The    joint   sewerage   commission   has     adopted     the
resolution of the sub-committee that
.Mr. R. S. Lea of Montreal be recommended  to the council of Vancouver
I and,the outlying    municipalities    as
| consulting engineer for the Greater
I Vancouver     sewerage  system.     The
i members of the commission will so
report  to   their  several     miinicipall-
I ties, and upon an agreement to that
effect  at  tbe next meeting of    Hie
[commission,  .Mr.  Lea  will  he immediately sent for.    lie Is In a position
to    leave    for    Vancouver    upon    a
week's   notice.     A   tentative   agreement    was    reached    recommending
that  Vancouver  stand   two-fifths  of
the preliminary expense, and    Burnaby, Point Grey and    South    Vancouver,   one-fifth     each.     This     arrangement will be only to defray the
initial expense, however,    and    will
have no connection with the division
of the ultimate expense, to which all
items  will  eventually  be  charged.
A   DRYDOCK
The effect, of a drydock upon the
industrial life of a seaport is difficult to overestimate. At the present
time Victoria" is experiencing a veritable boom, due in no small measure to the announcement that a dry-
dock is to be constructed in that city
somewhat similar to the one the
Grand Trunk Pacific is to put in
here. The city of Victoria realizes
what such a work means. A smaller
drydock has been in use there for
years and the advantages to the city
are known. Now with the promise
of a larger one, costing only $2,600,-
000 as compared with $2,000,000
for here, the city of Victoria has experienced a real boom.
Prince Rupert relatively has far
more to expect from the dock which
is to be built here than Victoria has
from its graving dock. It means
the centering of a ship repairing and
ship building trade here at a time
when the demands for this class of
work  is just heing developed.
IEALTY BULLETIN
In the Prince Rupert Realty Bulletin, the initial number of which is
now on sale, the city has another
publicity medium that should be of
decided value to the city. It is published by Joseph F. Swift, who has
had experience In this line in the
oast, lie possesses the necessary
energy to make the publication the
grand success It deserves. The first
number reflects the highest credit
upon its publisher and be intends to
keep the standard up in subsequent
numbers. It Is issued in magazine
form and will appear monthly. Its
purpose is to circulate abroad, thus
giving information as to Prince
Rupert that Is of most Interest to
those looking for Investment. It is
well adapted for the purpose and we
wish   the   "Bulletin"   all   prosperity.
DEVELOPING  THE  NORTH
The building of what is to be the
largest pulp mills in the world at
Ocean Falls, near Bella Coola, provides for another industry within
the sphere of influence of Prince
Rupert. It marks the fact that this
northern country is In the very centre of the industrial activity of the
coast. The effect of such works
will be for the material advancement
of this city which has an opportunity
to supply the needs of the place in
a wholesale way and to become the
port at which the shipping by rail to
and from the works will eventually
be done.
i  ;
British Columbia contributed 75
per cent of Canada s mineral production   in   1910.
SILKWORM  INDUSTRY
TRAIL,—What promises to be a
new industry for this city is now in
an experimental stage at the residence of Signor Antonio Vannucchl,
on Cedar avenue. Last fall Signor
Vannucchi received a consignment
of silkworm eggs from tbe province
of Udine, in northern Italy. About
the first of May this season the eggs
were hatched out with good results
and at present the worms are undergoing the various stages of evolution
before the final or cocoon stage is
reached. If the experiment proves
successful it is the intention of
Signor Vannucchi to make an exhibit at the Trail.fair in the early fall.
CANADIAN AEROPLANE
NEW WESTMINSTER—The Canadian aeroplane, invented by and
manufactured by Mr. William W.
Gibson, of Victoria, made an initial
flight a few days ago on the farm of
Lieutenant Governdor Paterson near
Ladner. The machine was taken
over to the mainland about a month
ago and put together. The invention
has been constantly improved since
that time, until it has now reached
the stage when it is ready for flights.
Trips to New Westminster and Vancouver are contemplated in the near
future, and before the summer is
over the inventor expects to fly from
the Delta across the Gulf of Georgia
to Victoria. The Gibson multiplane
will be exhibited by the inventor at
the ".Made-in-Canada" fair in Vancouver this summer, and possibly exhibition flights will be given. Only
a few were present at the initial
flight, including His Honor Lieutenant-Governor Paterson, who came
over from Victoria, Mr. J. F. Mackenzie, M. P. P. for Delta, and a
number of the residents of Delta.
CANADA'S POPULATION
What the Showing Was in the Three
Previous  Years of Enumeration in Various Provinces
The Canadian census for 1911 is
now being compiled on the basis of
the population as it was on June 1.
When the totals are compiled, they
will make a very different showing-
from the results of the former censuses. In 1891 and 1901, the announcement of the count was the
cause of exasperation and national
humiliation. In the twenty years
from 1881 to 1901 Canada increased
in population by a bare million.
The official figures for the last three
censuses were as follows:
1881 1891 1901
P. E. I. 108,891 109,878 103,259
X. S. . 440,572 450,396 459,574

Ont. .1,926,922 2,114,321 2,182,947
Man. . 62,260 152,506 255,211
B.   C.   .     '49,459       98,173     178,657

4,324,310 4,833 239 5,371,315
It is stimated by the government
statisticians that the population of
Canada on June 1 was in the neighborhood of eight millions. This
represents a growth of nearly 50
per cent during the last decade, an
extraordinary achievement even for
a country with the possibilities of
Canada.
The average mineral production
of British Columbia for the last
twelve years was $12,689,000; for
the last five years, $23,232,000^-
nearly double.

Mr. McPhail took half a dozen
men with him, among whom are
J. T. Peat, who will have charge of
the boring operations. Mr. Peat
conies from Petrolia, Out., and has
had a long experience In boring for
oil, having operated drills in various
oil fields in different countries for
the past eight years.
The company holds twenty-two
claims of 640 acres each under license, and has sufficient money in
its treasury to continue operations

arise to cause delays. The first bore
hole will be sunk near the mouth of
Blue Creek on the shore of Otard
harbor.

PRINCE   RUPERT  OFF
The Prime Rupert will not make
the run this week, owing to repairs
being necessary in the engine room.
It had been deemed wise to cancel
the round trip this week in order to
give a general overhauling before
the busy season begins.
SHIPPING  SEASON
The winter navigation season at
St. John, N. B., closed May 10, with
the departure of the steamer Wwar-
ra, for Soutli Africa. The total number of steamships arriving at the
port during the season was 135, of
which 112 loaded outwanl cargoes.
The total shipments outward were
valued at $23,669,073, of which
$15,322,437 represented Canadian
goods. In addition to this amount,
silver ore an', furs valued at $1,-
800,000  were also    shipped.    There
was a falling off in the shipment of
live stock, grain and flour, as compared with the previous year. There
was a considerable Increase in the.
Imports and  inward  passengers.
WEEK-END EXCURSION
The Grand Trunk Pacific steamship service from here has been
adapted to meet the needs of the
citizens of Prince Rupert. A weekend excursion is to be provided residents here who wish to visit Stewart. A. E. McMaster, the local agent,
has received instructions to give a
reduced fare of $9.50 return from
Prince Rupert to Stewart by the
steamer Prince George, which leaves
every Sunday morning, returning
here about six o'clock Monday morning. The result of this concession
should be the popularizing of the
trip, The fare fixed Includes berth
and meals. Formerly the rate was
$5 each way exclusive of berth and
meals, so that the new schedule Is
a decided reduction, As the summer
advances it is altogether likely that
this will become a very popular out-
ing.

ARRAIGNS MINISTRY
Geo. H. Cowan of Vancouver Reviews
the Present Session at
Ottawa.
He Explains the Attitude of the Gov.
eminent on Public Questions—
Feeling of Opposition
George H. Cowan, M. P., of Vancouver, who has only recently returned to the coast after a tour of
the Atlantic provinces of Canada,
has given his views as lo the early
part of the session. He says that
during the session last year, the
government pendulum swung inwards naval autonomy of Canada,
ami against any share or lot in thai
autonomy by the rest of the Empire.
This session Hie pendulum is. agalnsl
the' fiscal autonomy of Canada, and
In favor of banding over Hint autonomy to the United Slales. Indeed,
so anxious is Sir Wilfrid Laurier to
cultivate' trade relations with the
United States that he was, at first,
half disinclined to go to the Imperial Conference to pursue bis old-
time tactics of blocking closer relations between the different parts of
the Empire.
"The day before the adjournment." proceeded Mr. Cowan, ".Mr.
Fielding, ihe minister of finance, Introduced a resolution authorizing an
extension of the tariff provisions of
the treaty with Japan which expires
on July l(i nex(. It was attempted
to lead us to believe that nothing
was to be done in regard to immigration, and that the clause of the
treaty giving the Japanese every
right of entry, residence and travel
in Canada would also lapse on July
16. Hut we became inquisitive, and
got him to bring down the correspondence.
Secret Agreement
"That correspondence revealed
the astounding fact for the first
time to the people of Canada, that
the government had entered into a
secret, agreement with Japan, independent of the present treaty, and
not expiring with the present treaty.
By this agreement all Japanese-citizens have, and shall continue to
have, the free right of entry, rest
dence and travel in pCanada, unfettered by Canadian legislation, and
to be restricted only by the Japanese government, if that government,
after studying Canadian conditions,
decide to restrict it. This secret arrangement is without the auobtrity
oi parliament, and is not in the
British treaty. It gives Canadians
no co-relative right to free entry,
residence and travel in Japan. In
short, it. takes away from the Canadian parliament the power to control, by legislation, the immigration
of Japanese into Canada.
Favor Orientals
"During the discussion," said Mr.
Cowan, "Mr. Sidney Fisher, minister
of agriculture, got his foot in further by admitting that the government was trying to get China also to
exercise our right and perform our
duty, in determining who and how
many Chinamen should come from
China into Canada. He calls it the
policy of the government—this
business of handing over to foreign
countries what it is not only our
right, but our duty lo the working-
men of Canada lo dei ourselves.
The government are letting Japan-
ese, and they propose, also, to let
Chinese, enter Canada on more favorable conditions than they would
allow an Englishman, a Scotsman or
an Irishman. Under Hie immigration act ihe latter are required to
have $50 in their pockets. Under
the arrangement with Japan no such
requirement  is  or  can  be accepted
wall  like a  full  unchecked    torrent
over the mountain side.
"From what I can gather, and I
have been over the greater part of
New Brunswick and Ontario, the
people do not want this thing. Once
ratified by act of parliament it
cannot be repealed, as can an ordinary act of parliament, and Mr. Borden and his followers think, therefore, that it is a question for tlie
people  to  decide."

mining anil fishing camps throughout British Columbia. Dr. Davis, of
Nanalmo, has been given charge of
ihe work. He has drawn up ami
submitted id Acting Premier Young
a set of regulations outlining the
s.'iepe' of the new department. There'
are fifteen rules governing the sani-
tary arrangements of the camps.
These require first that every employer of labor in any sort of camp
ihat   CC is  within   the  authority   nf
ihe health act shall on establishing
il lose no time in notifying the inspector. The owner or foreman of
any such work will be held responsible for the enforcement of these
regulations.
The rules provide for ventilation,
for the temperature to be maintained in rooms, for the disposal of
refuse matter, and that dining rooms
and kitchens he separated from the
other parts of the camp. Every camp
must, in compliance with the rules,
have laundry and bathing facilities.
If the inspector considers the site of
Hie camp unliealthful be may order
a new site to be selected, or may
have the camp removed to a site approved by him. The location of
stables and closets or latrines, and
the source of tbe water supply of
any camp must be satisfactory to the
inspector.
Copies of the draft may be obtained from the inspector, who has
established his headquarters at Victoria. For the enforcement of the
regulations the inspector may obtain
the assistance of any provincial constable. The pjenalties provided in
section 97 of the Health Act will apply to the violation of any of the
rules.

Eager to fight and looking fit as
the proverbial fiddle, Jack Johnson,
heavyweight champion of the world,
has left for the Old Country.
Although he will arrive on foreign
soil today, the thirteenth day of the
month, Jack is not superstitious. He
admitted, however, he was glad he
will land at that time instead of It
being bis sailing date. Johnson is
eager and willing to fight, and said
be will meet any man in the world if
any of the promoters will guarantee
him $30,000 for his end, win, lose
or draw. He also took occasion to |
say that he is not matched with
Bombardier Wells, although reports
from New York stated Bugh Mcintosh had closed the match.
"I'm crazy to fight, again and will
meet any man in the world if the
promoters will meet my terms,"
Jack said before leaving. "When
Burns fought me in Australia he
held out for this amount and now
that I am kingpin of the heavyweights I think 1 am entitled to the
same amount. I will fight Wells on
three weeks' notice, if the English
promoters will meet my terms.
"In England I have several theatrical offers pending, but I do not
intend to sign any contracts until I
get over there and see bow the
land lies, t am going to attend the
Coronation and I passed yesterday
morning at the tailor's having my
clothes fitted. I have twenty suits
in all, besides eight silk hats. I tell
you those earls and dukes will not
have anything on me. I have sent
my cars over, so that I will not be
obliged to any one.
"From England 1 intend to go to
Paris and show for about three
weeks, and if Sam McVey and Joe
Jeanette want any of my game all
they will have to do is to get some
promoter to guarantee me my bit
and I will fight. I will be back in
America about the middle of August
as I have signed a contract with

STEALING THIRD POPULAR
The change in the amount of cork
and rubber in the ball seemed to be
about the only new thing in the
game this season, but fans who
watch the game closely have discovered that more men are stealing and
attempting to steal third base now
than ever before, and it is probable
that before the summer is over the
catchers and pitchers will have to
change their style considerably to
meet the new conditions.
The ball players themselves insist
hat it Is a much easier proposition to
sneak from second to third than
from first to second, and it certainly
looks much easier. The man on
second can take a lead off the bag
about .equal to tbe distance of the
shortstop from the base and no such
start is possible from first, for when
a runner Is at the initial station the
man covering the base sticks right
on the job. The catcher In throwing to second to get a man stealing
has a direct throw from the plate;
hut if be throws to third be must
make half a turn at least before letting tbe ball go; then, too, the
catchers for years have been practicing the throw to second, and must
spent some time in becoming accurate with the shorter throw to third,
and the position to tag a man com
ing to his bag as the, player covering second.
Managers used to think that It
was poor policy to steal third, because a man on second would score
on a hit, anyway. Now it is being
considered In a different light. If a
man gets to third and the throw to
catch him is bad he can keep right
on for home; or if he reaches third
and stops there he can score on a
fly to the outfield or on a passed
ball without waiting for the hit
hit which would have tallied him
from second. There is one important thing, however, which the ballplayer can't overlook. They must
get to second before they can steal
third.

DRAFTS ON FOREIGN COUNTRIES
Every branch of The Canadian Rank of Commerce is equipped to issue drafts on
the principal cities in tlie following countries without delay :
Already giving employment to 500
men, and with the anticipation that
by the time the entire plant and
buildings are completed in about six
months' time some TOO men will be
on the payroll, the Ocean Falls Com
. pany are bringing the second instalment of the sawmill machinery
in a few days by the steamer Couls-
don to Ocean Falls.
This company, which has a sub
scribed capital of $6,000,000, and
head offices in Vancouver, has se
cured all the machinery possible
from local sources to be used at tbe
pulp mills which expect to supply
paper to a large proportion of con
Burners on tbe Pacific Coast. Among
the cargo to be taken by the Cotils
don are two pairs of 24 by 30 twin
Corliss engines, two 10-foot band
mills, two 10 by 72 edgers, one 60-
foot gang, two compressed air automatic trimmers, two slab slashers
and two 7-foot roll feed bands. This
machinery, together with the 72 by
IS boilers furnished by the Vulcan
Iron Works of New Westminster,
B. C, making 12 boilers in all, will
complete the machinery for the
equipping of the new sawmill, which
will have a ten-hour daily capacity
of 350,000 feet. The first instalment of machinery arrived two
months ago on the steamer Crown
of Galicia.
In addition to the above, there is
also included in the shipment on the
steamer Coulsdon machinery for tho
new pulp mill, consisting of 17 pulp
grinders, which completes the number of grinders for the mill. The
rest of the pulp mill machinery is
on the steamer Queen Amelie,
which sailed from Liverpool on
April 6 by way of New York, leaving
there on May ,"i.
Largest  Mill  in Canada
When completed, and this is ex-
Teecied by November, ihe pulp mill
will have a daily capacity of 150 dry
tons »f mechanical pulp. The mill
Is arranged in units of 50 tons each,
,'iinl all provisions are made' in tho
hydraulic development and pulp mill
plans fur a further Installation to
bring the capacity up in 800 dry
t"ie- per day. When this is done, It
will he. the largest mechanical pulp
mill in Canada, if not in tbe World.
It has taken the best part nf two
years to transform Ocean Falls from
a deserted spin Into a scene of
bustling activity. Hy the time all
the operations are completed, In the
beginning of the new year, there will
be nothing lacking lo make the camp
the most comfortable, from the
point of view of the workmen, anywhere In existence. The hotel, which
is being constructed specially for
them, will contain eighty bedrooms,
plunge baths, amusement and reading rooms, library and special drying
rooms for men's clothes, while tbe
kitchen will include sieam and electric cooking utensils, even not ex-
ceptlng ihe patent potato peelers
used on the lutes' steamships. Altogether, all the appointments will be
of the most up-to-date character,
and will be something    which    has
