WILL BE A GREAT
COMMERCIAL
George Ross, I.S.O., of Post Office Department
Sees a Great Future for Prince Rupert—
He Holds the Opinion that it will
Attain First Rank Among Canadian Cities in very Short
Time-On Tour of
Inspection.
I wish to say that Prince Rupert is in my opinion destined to
be one of the most important
commercial centres of this Dominion, and that too at no distant date.
Geokge Ross.
The above opinion is the concise
expression of the one whose signature is affixed to it. It is George
Ross, I. S. 0., of Toronto, chief post
office superintendent for the Dominion of Canada, who is now on
an official visit to this city. Mr.
Ross, it is needless to add, Is strongly in love with this city. The fact
that he is here at this time is an
evidence that the place is regarded
by the department and by himself
as one of the important points in
the Dominion and he wishes to have
an exact idea of the situation here.
Since the year 1875 Mr. Ross has
been identified with the civil service
of the country. He has therefore
had excellent opportunities to study
the growth of the country and his
opinion on the question is worth
more than ordinary value.
Before he entered the service he
had served his time as a printer and
when he visited the office of the
Journal yesterday afternoon the old
impulse seized him. Although he
had not been in service at the case
for thirty-five years he proceeded to
try "bis nand" at it again. That
the importance of this city and its
great opportunities were uppermost
in his  mind  is  proved  by the fact
that as he proceeded to set up type
the lines be set were those that
are given at the head of this column.
Mr. Ross says that these words
convey his impressions of the place
on his first visit to it. It is necessary, he says, for him to be well
informed upon the various great centres and as he regards this place as
one of them in the making he has
come here to learn all he can of it
and so be in a position to give exact
information to the department upon
the various matters that may come
up from time to time respecting the
business here.
Speaking of the work that is being
done, he said that he was glad that
the post office was soon to be in
better quarters. Mr. Mcintosh, he
added, was doing splendid work, he
felt, under all the adverse conditions
under which he was called to work
here.
The opinion that Mr. Ross expresses with respect to this city and
her commercial opportunities is common with the majority of the clear
sighted men who visit the place and
see the immense possibilties that lie
before the city. He has no doubt
about the future, and is prepared
to advise with respect ro'tttu department with which he is connected
along this line.
 o	
David Strang, who for a long time
has been employed in the post office here, will leave In a short time
for his home in Australia. He will
remain until the post office has been
moved   into   the   new   building.
ASKED TO LUNCHEON
Canadian  Club  is  Alive to  the Advisability of Raving Frequent
Gatherings.
Dr.   Chang   Kang-Jen,   the   Chinese
Consul, Has Been Asked to
Visit  the  City
The Canadian Club of this city is
so well satisfied with the success
of the first luncheon that was given
* this season that it has decided to
keep up the good work and accordingly it is the intention to bring
on at an early date a second of these
functions.
Acting upon the move that has
been made by the Vancouver Canadian Club the local body lias decided
to invite as a guest Hon. Dr. Chang
Kang-Jen, Chinese consul, who is
to be entertained in the city of Van-'
couver at an early date by the club
there, lo come to Prince Ruperl audi
address the local body.
Dr.  Clayton,  the  secretary of tlie I
Canadian Club, has accordingly sent
a telegram l" Vancouver Inviting the
distinguished Chinese to come here.
It  is   the   intention   of   the   club
to bnve a  considerable number of i
these addresses this season and op-1
portiinity  will  be  taken  to  embrace,
all   the   distinguished    visitors   that
come  along   this   line.
RESIDENT   ENGINEER
G.B.
Hull of Public Works Department
Located Here Permanently.
Morning Excursions
In order to meet tlie wishes of a
number of those who desire to go
Metlakatla earlier in the day than
it had been arranged by the Baptist
Brotherhood that the first of the
trips would be made on Friday, there
will be a special morning trip made
at 10 o'clock in the forenoon. There
will be the same number of trips
made in the afternoon as announced
in addition to this one. There has
been every arrangement made to cater to the comfort of the public that
patronize this method of enjoying
the day.
He   Comes  Direct  From  Ottawa  at
the Instance of H. S. Clements to
Take   Charge   of  Work
There arrived in the city yesterday
Mr. Hull of Ottawa, who has been
appointed to the post of resident
engineer of the public works department at this place. He will have
charge of all the work that is being
carried out under the Dominion public works department in this district. Mr. Hull comes from the
headquarters staff and is well qualified for the duties of his office. The
need of such an officere in the city
has been felt for some time and
II. S. Clements, the member for the
district, has been Insistent in having
such an appointment made as being
in the Interests of ibis constituency.
Mr. Hull will have a small staff
to assist him, which will be appointed from time to time as die needs
arise for them, lie will in the lutine see that the various public
works that are being carried oul bj
the'government at Ottawa are properly executed and in this way the
necessity for having officials from
Ottawa come here lo make the inspection will be done away with,
The work that Mr. Clements is
doing in the interests of this riding
In such ways us this are of inestimable value to the city and to the
district. Mr. Hull has quite an
amount of work already awaiting
his arrival and he will get into duty
just as quickly as he can.

DEAL WITH PARKS
New Board   Elected   to   Have   Charge
of Parks of City Holds First
Meeting.
Ahlei'iniin Kerr Is Elected Chairman
and Rev. W. H. McLeod Secretary—Will Meet Weekly
The first meeting of the parks
Board, which has just been selected,
was held in the city hall last evening.
All the members were present. Aldermen Kerr, Dybhavn and Bullock-
Webster and H. P. Wilson, F. S.
Clements and Rev. W. H. McLeod.
Proceeding to the organization of
the board for the season Alderman
Kerr was elected chairman and W.
H.   McLeod   secretary.
It was decided that the board
should meet weekly at present, Wednesday evening being selected as the
day for the regular meetings.
There is to be an early start made
in the work of getting at least part
of the Acropolis Hill in shape for
a recreation grounds. On Saturday
afternoon it is the intention of the
board to visit the Hill and look
into some suggestions that Mr. Clements has to make with respect to
laying the grounds off with walks
and drives to make the place more
beautiful. The whole subject will
be looked into on the ground and
it is expected that there will be
some conclusions reached that will
be of benefit for the coming year.
A vote of thanks was passed to
the donor of the deer for the city
park and it will be recommended
that there be provision made at once
for the taking care of the animal
on Acropolis Hill. It is the wish
of the board that there be a section
of the Hill laid off for the accommodation of it. An offer was also
received from a citizen that this
deer and any other animals that
were placed in the park would be
taken care of by the person free of
charge to the city for one year.
An early start is to made in the
matter of the getting of shrubs and
trees for planting iu the park and
elsewhere in the city. An offer was
received from one citizen that there
would be obtained a large supply of
broom seed from Victoria that would
be placed at the disposal of the
board in the beautifying of the city.
It was decided also to have the secretary write to the Dominion minister of agriculture asking for a supply of shrubs and trees that would
be suitable for this climate. The
experimental station at Agassiz will
be communicated with for the purpose of ascertaining what are the
best varieties of trees and shrubs
to plant in this climate.
A suggestion was made that in
a wooded part of the Hill, in the
rear of the residence of W. E. Williams, there was a suitable place for
the providing of a playground for
children. This will be looked into
and if desired there may be some
swings put up for the children
among the trees that there are al
that  place.
In the laying out of the grounds
at the Hill Mr. Clements has in
view a system of decoration that
it was deemed wise to look into. It,
will provide for the carrying oul
of a series of roads and paths
through tlie park with the difl'ereni
recreation grounds placed conveniently, the whole composing a general scheme of beauty for the place
and converting ii Into a veritabl i
park,
THE NEW POST OFFICE
Postmaster Mcintosh will Remove from
Old Quarters to New on Sunday Night.
Xew Quarters Will  lie In   Use  for
Public on Monday Xe.vt—Will
.■Make Quick Change
On Sunday night there will be a
moving from the old post office on
the G. T. P. reserve to the new
office on Third Avenue. Everything
will be in readiness for the change
and the post master expects to be
doing business in the new quarters
on Monday as though no change had
been made. There will be some few
inconveniences to put up with for a
few days but it will be got in shape
in quick time.
i Following the removal from the
old quarters the building that has
done service for a post office from
the earliest days of the city will be
removed from its present site. Mr.
Mcintosh is calling for tenders for
the tearing down of the place, which
will have to be done at once as the
G. T. P. requires that it be removed
without any delay.
The new post office will be a most
convenient one. The arrangements
for the interior have been made and
it is so arranged that there will be
an abundance of space for the public
and at the same time the staff will
be given very much better quarters
than they have had in the past. As
soon as the change is made there
will be provision for the handling
of the mails and the taking care of
the public needs. There is a large
equipment of new boxes and other
material in the way of furnishings
that are now on hand and awaiting
the change in order that they may
be put in use.

TERRACE EXCURSION    '
ST ADVANTAGE
Mr. Bogue the Expert in this Line Has Returned
to the City to Make an Exact Investigation into the Whole Situation so as
to Advise the G. T. P. in the
Natter of Laying it Out
to the Very Best
Advantage.
There Will lie An Immense Number
of People Leave the City on May
for Kirs! Outing on Ci. T.  P.
There promises to be a record
crowd make the trip to Terrace on
Friday to enjoy the sports that are
I to be held at that place on that date.
The excursion which the G. T. P. is
running on that day will serve the
double purpose of allowing the citizens of Prince Rupert a chance to
take part in the sports that are to
be held there and at the same time
allow them to make the delightful
journey along the line of the railway.
There are many in this city who
have not yet had the opportunity
of visiting the points along the line
of the railway and this is an opportune time to see just what the company is doing and satisfying themselves as to the country that lies
within easy reach of the city.
The arrangements will be perfect
and there cannot fail to be a loaded
train on the occasion. The G. T. P.
has splendid equipment for the handling of the traffic and there is no
Inconvenience to be feared.
There has arrived in the city
again, V. G. Bogue, the eminent har- ■
bor engineer, who will take a some-1
what prolonged stay in the city on j
this occasion for the purpose of look- j
ing into the whole question of harbor j
improvement so that, he can report
to the management of the G. T. P. I
fully upon this subject.
He is accompanied by Mrs. Bogue,
and there also came north with him
Mr. Lucas, a brother of Stanley Lu- j
cas of this city.    He will act as his |
assistant in the work that' is to bel
done.    The whole of the waterfront ,
will be looked into so that the best
method   of  treating  the  waterfront ]
may be arrived at.
The presence of an engineer of
the reputation of Mr. Bogue in the
city on a mission such as he has i
in hand is a promise of the Importance of the city as a commercial
centre in the eyes of the G. T. P.
This company has in its hands the
opportunity to make this place one
of the greatest of the commercial
centres in the world. That the company is taking the pains it is in
everything connected with the city
and its harbor Is the surest indication that there could be that it is
to be put among the great harbors.
At one time it was regarded as
of little consequence what was done
with respect to laying out the waterfront as the general public believed
that with the immense stretch that
the company had here there was
nothing to do but proceed with Ihe
work along the lines of the least
resistance.     The G.  T.  P.,  however,
in view of the immense schemes that
they have in view with respect to
the harbor, find that it is not advisable to go at the undertaking
in any haphazard way but, on the
contrary, it is felt by the company
that there is none too much waterfront for the carrying out of the
propositions that there are in view
and accordingly due regard must be
paid to the economizing of the space
that is avalable. It is for this reason that the expert that has now
come here is on the ground. He will
look into the whole subject and after
getting all the information that is
needed on the spot will proceed to
advise in the matter of the utilization of the waterfront to the very
best advantage.
This  means   that   there  is   to   be
no  other  port   on   the  Pacific   that
is   to   receive  the  attention   at   thfe
hands of the G. T. P. that this harbor is.    It will mean that this is to
be, as was always intended, the main
terminus of the company, and  it is
from this port that the shipping for
the most part by water on the  Pacific   will   be   done.       In   order   to
carry   this   out   it   is   nedessary   to
utilize  every  foot  of  space   to   the
very  best advantage and  this  is  to
be done.    The best, of advice is to
be  taken so  that  there  may  be no
j mistake to be rectified in the future.
Mr.   Bogue will  have an  office  in
| the  city  for  a   time  and   make   bis
j investigations      and      prepare      his
plans  on  the  spot.     He  has   made
'preliminary investigations on hi* former visit to the city.

FILING  EXPERT
WHITE   FISHERIES
The northern pari of the
province seems determined to
enforce the anti-Oriental principle in its works. The fisheries
of this pari of tlie coasl seem
determined to wipe out these
people. Among the latest to announce the policy of no Orientals is the Haysport company.
There the management announces that nothing but whiles
will be employed aboul the
works or In the taking of fish.
This seems to be the decision of
all the large companies that are
to operate in these waters,
which promises well for the future of the industry as it affects
the city of Prince Rupert.

A GOOD  REPRESENTATIVE
In II. S. Clements, the member
for this district in tlie House of
Commons, the constituency has a
representative of the best type. Mr.
Clements is one who looks well after
tlie needs of the riding he represents and by persistent efforts gets
for it what is needed. His short
term as member so far has been productive of great benefits. It has not
been by long speeches on the floor
of the House that he has brought
attention to himself. He is a departmental man, and there is where
the greatest benefits are obtained.
He is open at all times to take up
matters that affect the district with
any of the ministers and the results
that have been obtained by him show
that he is able to make himself felt
with them. Prince Rupert in particular and the district in general
are reaping the benefits of his splendid   work  at  Ottawa.
CANADIANIZING  NEWCOMERS
The immigration problem of Canada, in the opinion of the Toronto
News, is one of the most momentous
that has ever confronted a nation
which desires to preserve the high
ideal of citizenship and perpetuate
the best traditions of the race from
which it has sprung. The problem
in Canada is two-fold—that of receiving, distributing, and absorbing
the volume of the Immigration
which annually seeks its shores, and
that of assimilating and moulding
lo Ihe national standard the large
foreign element among the newcomers.
In ten years Canada's population
of five and a third millions has bad
to cope with an emigration of nearly
two mlllons, more than half of whom
«< •■ alia ''he problem of assimilation is besl appreciated by the
analysis of the immigration for
l '■ i i. which was 350,37 !. comprl • d
of : British, 144,076; United S ates,,
1:: 1,340; Continental Europi an, 63,-
376; and miscellaneous nationalities,
11,582. The magnitude of Hie last;
is such circumstances is apparent.
Rudyard Kipling's advice lo
"'pump in (he Britisher" is one of
tlie obvious necessities. The British
element in Canada must bo so
strengthened as to be able to assimilate instead of being fused with the
alien races pressing Into her country. Undoubtedly the first step in
this process Is to "Canadianlze" the
newcomer before he can be expected
to appreciate and absorb the idea of
his wider Imperial citizenship. Experience shows that United States
settlers quickly submit to Canadian
Influences from the outset. They
become naturalized and associate
themselves readily with tlie British
element in moulding Into the host
type of Canadian citizenship the less
tractable material represented by
the Continental European .mil other
foreign   races,     'iii,.   United   States

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
LAW MAKING POWER
Decision of the Privy Council in the
Matter of References to the
Supreme Court.
The     Highest     Court     Dealt     With
Whole   Question   of   Provincial
Rights in Giving Its Decision
In delivering the Privy Council's
decision regarding the jurisdiction
of the Supreme Court of Canada,
which was briefly referred to in
these columns a few days ago, the
lord chancellor described the provincial rights case as most importan-
tant. Speaking of the British North
America Act, he said that there
could be no doubt that under it the
powers distributed between the Dominion on the one hand and the
province on the other cover the
whole area of self-government within the whole area of Conada.
It would he subversive of the entire scheme and policy of the act to
assume that any point of internal
self-government was withheld from
Canada.
.Numerous points have risen and
may hereafter arise upon these provisions of the act which draw the
dividing line between what belongs
to the Dominion or the province respectively. An exhaustive enumeration being unattainable, general
terms are necessarily used in describing what either is to have, and
the use of general terms causes the
risk of some confusion.
Overlapping Unavoidable
Whenever a case arises in which
it can be said that the power claimed falls within the description of
what the Dominion and also within
the description of what the province
is to have, such apparent overlapping is unavoidable. In the present
case, however£ quite a different contention Is advanced on behalf of the
provinces. It is argued, indeed, that
the Dominion act authorizing questions to be asked of the supreme
court is an invasion of provincial
rights, but not because the power of
asking such questions belongs exclusively to the provinces. The real
ground Is far wider. It is no less
than that no legislature in Canada
has the right to pass an act asking
such questions at all.
Law Making Power
This is the feature of the present
appeal, said his lordship, which
makes it so grave and far-reaching.
It would be one thing to say under
the Canadian constitution that what
has been done could be done only
by a provincial legislating within
its own province. It is quite a different thing to say it cannot be done
al all, Being as il is a matter affecting the internal affairs of Canada, and on the face of it regulating the functions of a court of law
which are pan of the ordinary ma-
chinery_of governmenl in all civilized countries, is it then lo he said
that a power to place upon the supreme courl the duty of answering
questions of law or tact when put
by the governor-in-coiincil does not
reside in the Parliament of Canada.
This particular power is not mentioned in the British North America
Act, neither explicitly nor in ambiguous terms.
Crucial Point
In the 91st section the Dominion
Parliament is invested with the duty
of miking laws for the peace, order
and good government of Canada,
and subject to the expressed reservations in the 101st section, the Dominion Parliament is enabled to establish a supreme court of appeal
from the provinces, and so when the
supreme court was established it had,
and has. jurisdiction to hear appeals
from the provincial courts, but of
any power to ask the court for Its
opinion there is no word in  Ihe act.
The question depends upon where
such power Is repugnant to thai acl
The provinces by counsel maintnln
in effect the affirmative, and say
that when the courl of appeal from
all the proi Inclal com ts Is authorized to be set up, that carries with
it. an Implied condition that the court
or appeal shall be In truth a < •
clal body according to Hie conception of a judicial character obtaining in civilized countries, and especially obtaining in Great Britain, lo
whose constitution that of Canada
is Intended to be similar, and they
say that to place the duty of answering questions, such as the Canadian
act, under consideration does require that court to answer, is incompatible with the maintenance of such
Judicial character or of public onfi-
denco in it or with free access to
an unbiased tribunal of appeal to
which litigants in provincial courts
are of right entailed.
This argument, said the lord
chancellor, In truth arraigns the law
fulness of so treating a court upon
the ground that a court liable to
be so treated ceases to be such a
judjlciary as the constitution 'provides for. The argument on behalf
of the provinces was presented substantially as just stated, thougt not
in these identical words, but, however presented, no argument which
falls short of this could claim serious attention. If, notwithstanding
its liability to answer questions, the
Canadian supreme court is still judiciary within the meaning of the
Brilish North America Act. then
there is no ground for saying that
the impugned Canadian act is ultra
vires.
The lord chancellor then went on
to deal exhaustively with precedents
likely to he used in determining Ihe
present   appeal.
The appeal of the attorney general of the province of Ontario and
others versus the attorney general
of Canada and another (Canadian
Supreme   Court)   was  dismissed.
After the teacher had finished
showing the difference between necessities and luxuries she asked a
small member of the class to name
a luxury. "The South Pole," replied the Utile miss. "People longed
to get it, but they could have got
along without it very well."

nauls of Toronto will represent Can-j

PES..}
CANADIAN      WON
J, C. Corkery of Toronto, Canada,
easily won Ihe London Marathon
from Windsor to Stamford Bridge
In 2 hours 37 minutes 14 seconds.
There were fifty-two starters. Corkery kept himself In reserve for several miles. At the fifteenth mile
he was sixth, and second at the twentieth, his time being 1 hour 58 minutes then. C. W. Gitzham, the South
African, was second, completing the
distance in 2 hours, 57 minutes 14
seconds; Green of the Hene Hill Harriers was third, 2 hours 59 minutes
22  seconds.
BROKE   RECORDS
Three world's records and five]
Olympiad records were broken; one
world's and one Olympiad record
were tied, and still another record
was approached within one-fifth of
a second at the Pacific Coast Olympic trials on the Stanford University
oval a few days ago.
Home of the Olympic Club of San
Francisco, with a wonderful new
mark of 6 feet 7 inches in the run-
ing high jump—7-8 of an inch better than his own world's record—
and Ralph Rose, Olympic Club,
with a new Olympic and world's record in the shot putting of 89 feet
6 3-8 inches right and left hand aggregating, were the two particular
stars.
Forest Smithson (unattached) was
a surprise of the trials. The world's
record holder in the 110 metre hurdles finished third. Fred Kelly,
University of Southern California,
won in 15 2-5, three-fifth of a second slower than Smithson's best
time.
Ira Courtney, Seattle A. C, tied
the Olympiad record of 10 4-5 in the
100 meteres dash.
This year's Olympic Marathon
race at Stockholm, Sweden, will not
be a straightaway run from point
to point, but about twelve miles out
and back over the same road, starting from the stadium and going almost due north to the village of Sol-
lentuna and home again. According
to the present plans, the competitors
will make two circuits of the stadium track at starting before passing
out into the road. At the finish
they will have to do only a fraction
of a  lap around  the arena.
Taken as a whole, it is a good
road, running the entire way
through open and practically wild
country, with considerable variety of
scenery and some hills, which, especially toward the finish, will be
trying enough. There is little difference in elevation between Sol-
lentuna and the stadium, but both
are higher than the intermediate
country. The runners, therefore,
will find the course generally downhill at starting; thien Hhere is a
level stretch in the middle section,
with bits of uphill work again toward the turning point. Coming
home the process will be the same;
downhill first, then level, and uphill again, and it is some of these
last slopes, none of them very steep
and moslly short, which are going
lo test the staying qualities of the
competitors.
Almost Immediately on leaving
the stadium tho road gels into wild
country, with grassy slopes on either
hand, broken with cropping rocks
ami scattered conifers, where many
thousands of spectators can find
room. Then follow s a charming hit
ol   binding woodland  road, whereon
for half a mile or so, ' he pines  ir-
ly meet overhead, ihe shade of which
if  i lie  day   he   hot   should  he  most
li ome. Again the course Bwlngs
out Into the open and runs close by
the edge of an arm ol' ihe sea, on
leaving which a sharp turn to the
left brings one lo another stretch
of beautiful woodland country;
emerging from the trees the water
is close by again, though on the
right hand. The way dips deeply,
and runs through an avenue of old
and well grown elms, with branches
meting above, beyond which lies a
wide expanse of open moorland.
The general trend of the route
from this point on Is upwards, and
soon the village of Sollentiina conies
in sight, with the railway station oTf
to the right, and, scattered over the
slopes In all directions, gay villas,
painted red and while, each In Its
square, fenced plot, making a garden
Budweiser
Appeals to people of discriminating taste because of
its superb Quality and Purity—no matter if you
drink it in Canada or in its St. Louis home town—
it always has the same snappy flavor—its in a class by
itself.

suburb in the wilderness. Ahead
rises the spire of Sollentuna Church,
a white-painted country edifice set
upon a knoll, surrounded by a
churchyard and fringed about with
trees. Somewhere just beside the
church will be the turning post. It
is a sweet and peaceful road today,
this road, which will see so much
energy in next July.
The change of scene and air, of
open space and shade, ought to be
helpful to the runners. Nowhere
does the road pass through anything
like a town or village; it has no
sidewalks; here and there are villas
or typical farmhouses, but it is always a good, honest country road.
