BUILDING ANOTHER
COLD STORAGE PLANT
Haysport is About Ready to Begin the Handling of Fish on a Large Scale-Buildings
Have Been Erected and Wharves
Provided for the Enterprise-
Will Start Up in a Few
Days Time.
No visitor to this city can fail to
be impressed with the fact that it
is to be a fishing centre of the very
first importance.- One of the latest
of the companies to get in shape for
the industry is the one at Haysport
on the Skeena opposite the town of
Port Essington. For months past
the company, backed up by Old
Country capital, as well as British
Columbia investors, has been making
ready for the packing and the handling of the fish that are to find
their way to this station.
Quite a staff is already on the
ground ready for the opening of
active operations, which will begin
in a few days now. It is not, of
course, pretended that the works
will be run to its full capacity at
first. Additions will be made to it
and by the time the G. T. P. has
its railway running there will be a
plant capable of handling an immense amount of fish at that point.
QUARANTINE WHARF
Work on this Undertaking will Likely
Begin Very Soon-Engineer
Here to Locate it.
Landing Place for Inspection of Vessels From Foreign Ports "Will Be
Constructed at  Digby  Island
The work of constructing the quarantine wharf will be commenced
here in a very short time. W. B.
Gauvreau, the representative engineer of the department of public
work 's In the city for the purpose
of definitely locating the lines in
connection with the work which will
be on Digby Island between the bays
upon which the marine depot is situated and the one upon which the
quarantine hospital is built.
There will follow the erection of
the wharf, the placing of detention
sheds and other necessary buildings
in the locality. The quarters for
the doctor in charge will, it is expected, be started at any early date
so as to have all in readiness for the
opening up of the trade with foreign
ports which must come immediately
after the completion of the G. T. P.,
or even before that time.

RICH ORE FOUND
Salmon   mill    Rear   Itivw   Company
Reported lo Have Made Valuable
Find  on  Their Property
From Ihe Salmon River section
conies the most Important mining
news of the week in a new discovery
of from nine to fifteen feet of galena ore on the properly of the Salmon-Bear River Mining Company,
says the Porl land Canal Miner. Of
the find. Foreman Pat Daly, who is
In charge of ihe development, writes
the Miner: "The property is looking
fine. 1 made a new discovery nr
solid galena ore, apparently of good
grade. II is the largest surface
showing I have yet seen stripped in
British Columbia of this character
of ore. It is from nine to fifteen
feet in width in different places. I
cut into 11 along the trend of the
lead and it has all the earmarks of
being a permanent body. Have
Btarted a tunnel on the showing."
The shipping will be by the railway
line when all is equipped as well as
by steamer and the plant has been
planned for this object. It is situated right on the line of the track.
The freezing and cold storage building is placed between the wharf and
the railway tracks so as to allow of
the utilization of either methods of
shipment. The taking in of the raw
material in the way of fish will of
course be by way of the water. Between the building and the car
tracks is space enough to allow for
the putting in of tracks to allow
for loading the finished product for
shipping to all parts of the world.
A very substantial wharf has been
built, jutting far out into the water.
One advantage that the company has
in the location that has been selected is that it is on fresh water and
accordingly the toredoes do not affect the piles. There is, therefore,
no preservative necessary in getting
the piles for the wharf and there
is also the additional saving of not
having to replace these every few
years. This in Indeed a very Important feature and one that the
company expects will give them no
small advantage in the business in
which they are launching Into.
On the wharf is an iron storeroom
where the stock is received and held
for shipment. At the present time
the company has a stock of herring
on hand there to be used for bait
in the operations of the concern.
The freezing and main storage
plant Is situated nearer the railway.
The building is practically completed. It is a one-storey structure,
with walls specially constructed to
prevent the conduction of any heat
into the place, thus keeping the temperature uniform. In Ihis building
there is provision made for the quick
freezing of the fish and adjoining
it are rooms for the storage in cold
rooms for an immense amount of
material. There is the provision in
the building for the making of ice to
be used by the company in its own
work in stocking the steamers that
are to be used in the taking of the
fish on the banks, and for retail
trade if that is deemed advisable to
cater to. There is a capacity of
thirty-five tons a day of manufac- j
tured ice in the works, while the
storage capacity reaches several
times  that amount.
The company, however, realizes
that, situated as it is, too far from
any centre like Prince Rupert, there
must be provision made for ihe taking care of those who are to be
employed about the place in the
carrying on of the great undertaking
that  they  have  In  view.
Accordingly the,re has been erected a three-storey hotel on the town-
site containing twenty-eight bedrooms and all Ihe oilier necessary

ASK   RESIGNATIONS
All the Engineer's Department will Be
Requested to Retire from
Posts.
Council   Will   Then   Take  Steps   to
Replace Required on the
Permanent  Staff
At the council meeting last night
the report of the special committee
that considered questions in private
session was presented. It was set
forth that the resignations of the
whole of the engineer's department
should be called for; that the clerk's
salary should remain the same, although an amendment was introduced at the secret meeting to increase it.
Alderman Morrissey said there
was another amendment relative to
1 lie engineer's department that
should be set forth if these others
were.
The mayor contended that no motion was put.
Alderman    Montgomery   did    not
ROCK CLEARING
Offer Made to Have City Excavate From
McLeod Lots for Sum of
$5,000.
City  Council   Decides  to   Refuse   the
Offer—Engineer Opposed to doing
Into  Such   Business
An offer was received by the city
council last evening relative to clearing the McLeod lots of rock at the
corner of Second Avenue and Fifth
Street. The offer was to have the
city clear the lots to eighteen inches
below grade, the city taking all rock
as to damage to building, the owner
to pay $5,000 cash upon the completion of the work.
Alderman Clayton favored referring this to the city engineer and
the works committee, with power to
act.
Alderman Bullock-Webster endorsed the move. It might be possible then to cancel the arrangement
for blasting out the rock near Market   Place.     This   latter   proposition

The motion censuring the mayor
and finance committee for cancelling

without the consent of the rest of
the council was defeated at the council last night on the casting vote of
the mayor. The second resolution
of censure for cutting off work on
the public utilities was allowed to
be withdrawn on the introduction
of an amendment that the finance
committee be increased lo include
every member of the council. Alderman .Morrissey thereupon resigned
his  post  as  chairman   of  the  public

Alderman Montgomery did not

financial situation in the city. There
was nothing serious. The team
could have been bought, he fell, out
of the hydro-electric. He favored
the council going into committee of

SEWER PROPOSAL
Hurst  Pipe  Allows  Sewage  to
Through and   Hun   Down
Open Drain
,eak
Owing to the fact that the sewer
is burst on Second Avenue, allowing
sewage to drain out into the runway which crosses McBride Street
near the corner of Third Avenue it
is suggested thai the use of the
sewer be discontinued. The health
officer  expressed   fear  of  trouble  if
it  were  continued.     The  opinion  of
the city  solieiior  was also given,  in j condition
which lie expressed the opinion that j an apple without asking Mr. Clancy
pole line could be used for carrying
a high voltage wire and thus be included as part of the hydro-electric
scheme. But there seemed a doubt
now  upon this point also.
Alderman Morrissey recalled the
fact that on the platform at election
time the mayor had admitted that
although a member of the finance
committee last year, he knew nothing about how it was run. He had
come to the conclusion that he (the
mayor) knew' no more this year,
and that the other members of the
finance committee were in tlie same

ENLARGED   COMMITTEE
AI the council meeting last nigh!
the decision was reached to enlarge
the finance committee instead of censuring It. Under the new arrangement the committee includes all the
members of the council, which er-
tainly makes the body large enough.
It is doubtful if the increasing of
a body to that size can work much
good. The committee under ordinary
circumstances is unwieldy and there
is no question that three good men
can under ordinary circumstances
accomplish better work in committee than can a body as large as that
selected. At, the same time there
was a considerable portion of the
council that did not have confidence
in the whole of the committee that
had charge of the finances. The
election of a larger body was in
reality a vote of want of confidence
In the old committee just as much
as the original motions were. The
results from the increased numbers
will be watched  with interest.
that  was quite a  serious  matter.
Alderman Morrissey felt that the
city had a right to prohibit Hie use
of  the  sewer.
The   city   solicitor   suggested   that
they   have  the  users   of  this  sewer
discontinue    and    then   be   given   a

A   Correction
Alderman Bullock-Webster wishes
io correct, two typographical errors
thai occurred in ihe statements as
io tlie bylaws that were given the
Journal by him. One has to do with
the city hall bylaw. The cost of
$30,000, he said, was exclusive of
furniture, instead of being made to
read inclusive of furniture. In connection with electric bylaw, an addition making $65,000 is read as giving  $66,000.
VERY SUDDEN  DEATH
(Continued  From  Page  One)
FISHING   CENTRE
The increasing amount that is being invested in the fishing industry
in this part of the province is a
guarantee that Prince Rupert is to
be the greatest fishing centre in
Canada at least. The Skeena River
is fast taking the place of the Fraser
as the great producer of salmon and
there is little doubt it will soon surpass the southern river in this line.
But in additiou to this the city and
the environs of it are to be the homes
of all kinds of fish-curing and packing establishments. With the building of these there will develop other
industries allied to it. That of shipbuilding will become an important
accessory and when the G. T. P.
yards for ship-building are completed they will be in demand for the
construction of a tremendous number of fishing craft of all sizes.
HOSPITAL  MATTERS
city
Council    Is    .Manifesting    Deep
Interest   in   the  Institution
Now
taking parlors of E. L. Fisher. Ar
rangeinents are being made for Hie
taking of the remains to Seattle,
where the interment will take place.
The deceased was a native of Scotland but had lived a large part of
his life in the United States. For
a number of years he resided on
the Pacific Coast, making Seattle
his headquarters. Many large contracts were carried out by him and
following the securing of this one
here for the drydock for the G. T. P.
he had also tendered and expected
to secure a very large contract from
the  C.   P.  R.  in  Vancouver.
He is survived by Mrs. Dow and
five children. Of these three lived
here, being quite young. Two married daughters reside in Seattle. A
brother of the deceased was associated  with  him   in  the  work  here.
PERSONALS
Last evening at the council a letter from the hospital hoard was read
selling fortli that all indigent patients from tlie city were being
treated free of charge.
Alderman Bullock-Webster wanted
to know what "free of charge'1
meant. Did ii mean thai tlie city
did not have to pay for medical
treatment.

WHOLE COUNCIL TO
AID AS FINANCIERS
(Continued  From  Page One)
Last year they never heard Mr.
Clancy's name mentioned.
Alderman Bullock-Webster said he
admitted that the name of Mr. Clancy
should not be dragged in in a personal   way.
Alderman Montgomery said he was
not goiiig to defend tlie finance committee. At the same time, he could
not see that any good could be done
by passing this. In amendment to
the motion he moved that all the
members of tlie council should be
made members of ihe finance committee until this crisis was passed.
Alderman Dybhavn said he would
vote for it in order to obtain more
information.
The mayor said that Mr. Clancy
had told him that he always obtained
all the information he desired from
the clerk or from himself (the
mayor). Mr. Sweeney had told himself and the solicitor in Vancouver
that the city of Prince Rupert was
going too fast. He pleaded that they
should not pass this resolution, as
it would give the information to the
world that the council had not confidence in the finance committee.
He asked them to vote this down,
not to screen anyone, but to show
the world that the members of the
council were working in harmony.
Alderman Clayton felt that if Alderman Douglas came to the council
in his proper clothing be would come
in swaddling clothes.
Alderman Maitland said that it
was characteristic of places In British Columbia that they got all the
money they wanted the first year
but the second and third years it
was cut off from the work.
Alderman Morrissey, upon the motion to make the finance committee
a committee of the whole, carrying,
stated that he would no longer serve
as chairman of thje public works
committee when their duties were to
usurped. Now that the mayor and
the finance committee had taken the
a
work out of his hands he would tender his resignation as chairman, and
would not act on any committee.
The mayor suggested Alderman
Dybhavn but the latter wanted an
older member of the council named.
His name was allowed to stand,
however.

OIL   FUEL   AND   PANAMA   CANAL
Oil Tapping iu Latin-American States
Lead  to  Expectation  That  Oil
Will He Substituted for Coal
As the Panama Canal nears completion a great deal is heard of oil
tappings in various parts of Latin-
America and the West Indies. Reports of rich oil strikes are becom
ing so frequent that one is beginning to include the use of oil as a
substitute for coal in the general
revolutionary changes that are confidently expected to he wrought by
the canal. There certainly is excellent ground for the assumption
that, the powerful companies, chiefly
English and American, that are developing the oil fields in the more
or less close proximity of the canal
and along the line of travel, will
make every conceivable effort to get
control of the fuel supply to the
merchant fleets passing through the
locks.
Trinidad, one of the most famous
of Britain's island possessions, appears to anticipate not only a complete revival, of its one-time prosperity, but, indeed, a new era in
which Port of Spain shall become
one of the great shipping centres of
the world—sometning like the Hongkong of the west. Its situation on
the route both of the European and
South American traffic to or from
the Panama Canal would seem to
justify a good part of the enthusiasm
with which the people of the island,
and loyal subjects of King George,
regard their vast resources of petroleum, taken together with the excellent and various harbor facilities,
and its sheet of landlocked water
whose expanse, protected north and
south, is easily defended and of great
strategic value.
Important as this prospect is to
the shipping of the world, it is still
more significant perhaps from the
point of view of stimulating development of the Spanish republics grouped about the Caribbean, notably the
opening up of Venezuela and Colombia, both of which countries have
valuable oil fields. Colombia, like
Ecuador, also has good coal deposits
at fairly accessible points, a circumstance which is likely to emphasize
the oil fuel propaganda.
It will be interesting to watch the
commercial and industrial developments which, though unconnected
with the construction of the canal,
are nevertheless sure to grow out of
the canal route, forming an entirely
new centre of activity in the American  tropics.
Oil fuel in Trinidad, as a substitute for coal, is being gradually introduced in local enterprises, notably
the sugar mills, resulting in greater
economy as well as efficiency.
The oil resources of that island
are very considerable, as may be
seen from the asphalt deposits of the
La Brea pitch lake, to form which
it has been calculated some 40,000,-
000 tons of petroleum were required.
This, however, has not exhausted
even the oil near the lake, the shipments of oil from that vicinity being
more than 25,000 tons in January,
February and March. Of other deposits on the island, that* of the
Oilfields Company at Port Fort in
has proved a particularly rich tap.
Owing to these oil strikes, the
question of land ownership has come
up for discussion, as Ihe crown still
owns the island, and thereby controls the oil resources of the undeveloped area.
The goverenment of the colony,
it Is believed, will shortly define Its
policy iiitjregard to the new industry,
which not only helps the sugar Industry, luil promises to give Trinidad a commanding position in the
shipping thai will pass through the
Panama Canal.
ON INDIAN  RESERVES
Those  Who "Are  Making  Homes  on
the Lands of tlie Aborigines
Are Warned to Quit
A. M. Tyson, the inspector of Indian agencies for this northern part
of the province, has gone south, after
a visit to the interior points in company with Indian Officer "Pat" Phillipson. On this visit to the interior
the inspector caused a good deal of
commotion in Hazelton by reason of
his orders relative to the removal
of white men from the Indian reserve.
The instructions of the Indian department are to allow no residences
of white men on the reserves. In
ordering them off at Hazelton as
well as at other points the inspector
was but carrying out the instructions
of the department. The residents
of Hazelton. however, seem to have
viewed the situation with a good
deal of alarm. It docs not seem to
be likely I hat there is any trouble
to follow.

ASK   RESIGNATIONS
I Continued  From  Page One)
Alderman Clayton took exception
to the stand of Alderman Morrissey.
The latter proposed to dismiss the
chief engineer and retain others.
The chief engineer was the man,
he felt, above all, that should be
retained. He thought the chief engineer should be allowed to finish
the  work  he  started.
The amendment to retain the
three was lost, only Aldermen Morrissey and Dybhavn voting for it. A
motion to call for the resignation
of all the members of the engineer's
staff was carried. *
The proposal had been made by
Alderman Clayton that 'a bylaw be
introduced fixing the salary increases
from yeaer to year.
Alderman Montgomery thought
the position taken by Alderman Clayton was that he favored an increase
to the clerk; then it was reduced;
then it was to be raised again in
part.    It was a peculiar position.
Alderman Clayton argued it was
a proper course. It showed a man
exactly what he was to get.
The report was adopted and it was
decided to call for all resignations
by June 15.
Earlier in the evening a letter was
read from Mr. Mason denying the
report that he had offered to fill
the post for  $3,000  a year.
Alderman Morrissey was sorry
that such a matter as this should
come up. He had asked Mr. Mason
If he would accept the position if
it were vacant. Mr. Mason had said
he would not be an applicant unless
the post became vacant. He had
said that he would not accept the
position at a salary of $3,000.
Alderman Montgomery had never
said anything to indicate that he
favored Mr. Mason for the position.

LABOR   DECISION
Privy Council Decides Against the Contention of the British Columbia
Courts on Point.
Dependents  Living Outside Province
WIU Be Able to Benefit Under
Workmen's Compensation Act
Fernit, May 20.—The news has
been received here by the officials
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company stating that the company lost
Its appeal before the Privy Council
in the case of Kraus vs. Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company. The news given
is great satisfaction to the miners,
who now have established the right
of foreign dependents to benefit under the Provincial Workmen's Compensation Act.
The decision is one of the most
Important in the labor annals in the
province. A dozen more cases are
awaiting in the courts for the result
of the appeal. The decision releases
$S0,000 of deferred awards under
the ruling of the British Columbia
Courts.

BIRTH
On May 6, at Potterville, Mich.,
there was a son born to Mr, and Mrs.
A. F. Rowe. This information has
been received by Mr. R. Rowe of
this city.

Ordination   Service
Bishop Du Vernet and Rev. W.
Rushbrook were at Metlakatla Thursday to attend the ordination of Rev.
Mr. Potter as a clergyman of the
Church of England. A special Ascension Day sermon who preached by
Rev. Canon Keen in the evening.

Not on  Sale
O. M. Helgerson & Company offered $10,000 to the city last night
for a piece of city land, 100x100 feet.
It was stated that it was worth far
more and the city solicitor expressed
the opinion that the consent of the
people would have to be obtained,
In any event. The letter was received and filed.
Summer  Hospital
The Port Essiugton General Hospital, under the superintendent of
Dr. Large of Port Simpson, will open
shortly for the fishing season. Dr.
Large has gone to Port Essington
to make preliminary arrangements.
This hospital is one which is operated under the charge of Dr. Large
in order to look after those who require attention during the fishing
season. It is a commodious and
comfortable building and well adapted for the purpose.
Dr. Alfred Thompson expects to
leave for his home in the Yukon on
Wednesday. The doctor is so impressed with the prospects here that,
although he has property holdings in
Prince Rupert, he is desirous of obtaining additional lots

fish. In the intervening time, until
the works are in good order to open,
the fish are being taken care of at
some of the other fishing concerns
thai are now becoming so numerous
in this part of the province. There
will be other steamers for the trawling business built as fast as the demand is created and before long
there will be a large fleet of these
craft. As time goes on it is the
intention, it is said, to have other
stations equipped in different parts
of this fish producing part of the
coast and at all of these there will
be a supply of al! kinds put up to
feed the millions that are anxious
to have the product of these waters. Marvels in the way of development have already been accomplished. The waters of this northern
coast are becoming studded with all
kinds of craft engaged in this work
of catching and curing fish. But
there has only been a start made in
this industry. It. is destined to become the greatest industry probably
that  this  city  will  have.
