City Council Will Have Engineer's Reports Presented for Distribution.
Col.   Davis  Acquiesces  in  the  Views
of Mr. Thomson, of
The city council met as a committee of tne whole on Wednesday evening to consider among other things
the question of the report of R. H.
Thomson, city engineer of Seattle,
relative to the proposed water supply for the city. At the meeting
tenders were opened for the printing of the report. The tenders were:
The Journal, $63; News, $65; Premier Press, $70, and Empire, $75.
The contract was awarded to The
Journal. It was decided also to
have printed the report of the city
engineer, Colonel Davis, upon which
Is based Air. Thomson's report. The
whole will be contained in one booklet.
A short report from Colonel Davis
relative to the report of Mr. Thomson, was read at the meeting. He
accepts the consulting engineer's
findings and endorses the conclusions reached by him. He pointed
out where the differences came in
and the reasons for it. The principal difference apart from the addition of an electric supply, which is
proposed by .Mr. Thomson, is the
substitution of an 18-inch main from
the lake to Shawatlans Passage for
a 25-inch main, as proposed by Colonel Davis, in his original report.
The 25-inch pipe would be sufficient
to supply a population of 60,000,
while the lS-inch pipe would meet
the demands of 33,800.
His Worship said that it must be a
great satisfaction to Colonel Davis to
have -Mr. Thomson acquiesce in the
proposals he made in  large part.
On the proposal of Colonel Davis
to have two pipes across Shawatlans
Pasage so as to avoid all danger of
the cutting off of the supply by any
accident, Aid. Clayton asked if the
popes across the passage would be
placed far apart. He thought perhaps the idea would be to put them
some distance apart to avoid the
danger of injury from the dragging
of an anchor.
Colonel Davis said the pipes
would not be far apart according to
his plans.
His Worship said that Air. Peters,
the solicitor had looked into the
question and was of opinion that the
proposition for a water supply and
a power supply could be put through
as one work.
Air. Peters agreed with this. He
thought they were so closely allied
that It could be taken as one work.
His Worship said that with the
city engineer and Air. Thomson so
well agreed the situation was simplified.
All-. Peters believed that if k tho
debt was made a charge against the
water rates it would not be necessary to have a petition prepared before presenting the bylaw to the people to be voted upon.
Air. Poter said no petition was required where the interest and sinking fund was raised by rates or rentals and not out nf general revenue.
Considerable discussion followed
with respect to the matter, it being
finally decided to have Mr. Peters
proceed at once with the preparation of the necessary bylaw, which
will be ready for presentation on
.Monday night and be ready for discussion.
Western Canada is at present being flooded with counterfeit Canadian silver coinage, principally fifty-
cent pieces. Bankers say that this
counterfeit is the most accurate and
therefore, one of the most dangerous
which they have ever seen.
This particular counterfeit has a
somewhat greasy feel and the milling on the edge is very imperfect.
The coin Is also a little light in
weight, and can be detected if rung
on a counter, table or floor. The
head side Is almost perfect, but the
obverse side is a little indistinct.
W. E. Williams, accompanied by
Mrs. Williams, left for Victoria this
morning. He has gone to attend
the court slttin gas counsel for the
accused in connection with the trouble at Kelly's cut.
New   Publication   Devoted   to   Real
Estate and Other Interests
of Prince Itupert
In a few days there will be Issued
the first number of a new publication in Prince Rupert, intended to
advance the interests of Prince Rupert by giving special information
concerning its business. The periodical will be published monthly in
niagzine form and is under the editorship and control of JoBeph F.
Swift of this city. Mr. Swift has had
experience in this line before, having
published a somewhat similar paper
in the east.
He plans a very creditable publication and one which should be a
credit to the city. It is to be devoted
to the dissemination of exact information relative to Prince Rupert, so
that its effect should be the building
up of all legitimate trade and business.
Association    Is   Fonned   Locally   for
.Mutual  Benefit of Those Who
Follow  Calling
At a meeting of the local musicians held on Wednesday evening it
was decided to form a branch of the
Musicians' Mutual Protective Association. The chair was taken by
S. D. AlacDonald, president of the
Typographical Union, who dwelt
briefly upon the advantages of organization.
After deciding to organize, the following were selected as officers of
the union: President, J. S. Gray;
vice president, E. J. Waterman; secretary, Frank Stevens; treasurer,
Lee Baker; sergeatn-at-arms Alex
Gray; executive committee, Frand
Stevens,  Lee  Baker and  J.  S.  Gray.
Aliss Alabel Gray, Alessrs. Kokler,
Paul Kauffinann, C. N. Pring, William Godson and W. L. Barker were
present at the meeting also.
Hospital Meeting
There will be an extraordinary
general meeting of the members and
subscribers to the Prince Rupert
General Hospital on Tuesday, evening next in the police court room.
The meeting is called for the purpose of passing upon the proposed
new bylaws of the society. It is
hoped that there may be a full attendance of all interested in the institution.
Mineral Area at Hazelton is Found
Extend Across the
Milling   Section   in   the   Interior   Is
Heing Extended  In  Consequence
The prospects at Hazelton, from a
mining tandpoint, are looking still
more favorable than they were in the
earlier part of the year. The Omineca Herald .published in Hazelton,
which is always conservative with
resp ect to reports regarding the resources of the country, In its last
Issue contains the following:
According to the expectations of
those watching the mineral development of the Hazelton camp, the
proved mineral belt has been traced
across the Skeena River to the hills
on the west side. Several prospectors have been following the receding snow up the side of the bills and
this week Jack Lawler and -Jack
AlcColl brought in samples from
their new locations about a mile and
a half from the west end of the
Skeena bridge. The ore is an arsenical iron and cube galena, much resembling the ore from the number
three vein of the Harris Brothers'
claim on Nine Mile. The locators
describe the vein as being about
three feet and a half wide.
It Is freely predicted that one of
the most important parts of Hazelton camp will be found on the west
side of the Skeena and one of the
chief extensions of known mineral
territory will be in that direction.
The rock formation Is much the
same on both sides of the river, the
sedimentary rocks being the same In
appearance and the eruptive rocks
apparently the same as the porphyry
granite of Nine Mile Mountain.
Interest Revived in the Rich Opportunities That are
Awaiting Capital on the Islands Close to the
City of Prince Rupert-Investigating -
Interests are Constantly
The advance of the season each
steamer from the south brings additional numbers who are looking into
the opportunities that are presenting
themselves there for investment. It
is quite apparent that for many
years to come investors in various
lines are going to divide their attention over a very wide area in the
north. The whole district, which
recognizes this as the centre, seems
to be rich. Many years will be required to discover what it contains
without even  developing.
The latest arrivals from Ihe south,
bound to the Queen Charlottes, were
Captain Bellamy, G. Thorpe and a
small party interested in coal prospects and also in other lines. They
are visitin gthe islands and will look
into the chances for investment elsewhere before going soutn.
Mr. Parnall, who has the drill at
Skidegate, awaiting shipment to the
west coast of Graham Island to bore
for oil, went south this morning to
secure the necessary scow to carry
the outfit to the scene. He had almost completed arrangements, as lie
thought, for the scow which the city
purchased. The taking over of it by
the city, however, has upset his arrangements.
W. G. McMorris, who has charge
of the opening up of the British Pacific properties, expects to be mining fifty tons a day by September.
He is sinking the slope within about
a mile and a half of deep water in
the coal formation. He is exceedingly well satisfied with the results
of the work so far.
Mackenzie   &    Mann   May   Establish
Whaling Stations all Along
First of Series  South  of Canada  to
Be Opened at Aberdeen
The Alackenzie and Mann interests
seem to be well satisfied with their
whaling investment and it is reported that they will extend their
chain of stations which now exist in
Canada alone, all the way south as
far as Mexico.
The first of a line of stations for
the United States coast is now to be
built In Aberdeen, Washington.
While the control will be practically
the same as it is on the Canadian
side, the stations built in the United
States will be incorporated under a
different name.
The work of outfitting the Aberdeen station is now under way and it
will soon be in operation.
It is reported at present that the
whales on the coast are very timid
so that the hunting has been somewhat difficult. At Naden Harbor
on Graham Island, the operations
are in full swing and a fair supply
of mammals are being taken. About
125 men are employed there altogether and the equipment is right up
to date.

Vessel   Is   Probably   Little   Damaged
As a  Result of Her
The Canadian Pacific Railway
steamer Amur, Captain Locke,
grounded in Wrangell Narrows yesterday, according to information received at the wireless station. The
vessel, It Is expected, is not seriously
injured and was expected to float
off at high water, according to the
last reports.
The Amur Is well known here,
having been on the Queen Charlotte
Islands run for several seasons.
Master  Builders   Association   in  Vancouver Refuse to Meet in
They   Decline   That   Previous   Meetings Were Without
(Special to The Journal)
VANCOUVER, June 2.—-The master builders' association has refused
the offer of the city council to meet
in conference with the civil committee and union representatives with a
view to averting a general strike in
the city. A letter from the master
builders declares they were carrying
on their work without difficulty and
previous conferences had been unavailing so that it would do no good
to hold any more.
The move arises out of the avowed
intention to call a general strike of
workers in  the building trades.
Lecture on  tlie  Subject  Was   Delivered by Mr. Mngee Last
Last evening in the Empress Theatre, Willim II. Alagee, correspondent of the London Daily Telegraph,
delivered a most interesting address
upon the Panama Canal. Alayor
.Manson presided and while the attendance was not as large as could
have been wished for those who went
enjoyed the lecture.
The speaker traced the history of
the move for the Panama Canal with
the conditions which prevailed. He
laid stress on the importance that
would attach to it in a commercial
way, showln gthat Prince Rupert, as
the terminus of a great railway
artery, would derive' rich results.
Lunatic Believed to Have Caused
Accident on Railway.
Those   Concerned   Are   in   Terror   of
Their Lives As He Is Still
ut   Large
(Special to The Journal)
CHATHAA1, Ont., June 2.—The
wrecking of passenger train number
'.) on the Michigan Central near
Rldgetown, when Engineer Quinn
and Fireman Oakes were killed, is
now believed to have been the work
of a lunatic. For some time past
there have been numerous stories of
wrecks attempted on other roads in
similar manner. The trainmen are
in mortal terror as this lunatic Is
still at large.
Joseph F. Swift, of this city, has
just received the information that
his son, Cyril James Swift, has been
appointed resident engineer on the
National Transcontinental Railway
for division 24, with headquarters at
Cochrane, Ont. The young man Is
only 22 years of age. His appointment at such an age speaks well for
his ability as an engineer. He Is a
graduate of the Royal .Military College at Kingston.
Moved  His Office
Dr. Tremayne has moved his office from the old Kelly-Caruthers
block on Centre street, to rooms
over Orme's Drug  Store.
Removing Remains
The remains of John Flanigan,
who was killed in an accident, at
Hardserabble, on the Skeena, will be
removed and forwarded to his
friends in Elmira, N. V. The application for the removal of the body
was made through the United States
consular service, who communicated
with C. C. Perry, the Indian agent at
Metlakatla. All the necessary formalities have been complied with
and the remains will be sent south.
The British Columbia committee
in charge of the complimentary banquet which will be tendered Premier
.McBride at Iondon on the 9th of
June proximo, and which includes
the most representative western
Canadians at present resident in the
Imperial metropolis, has very appropriately sent to this province an
order for a liberal consignment of
the royal fish that has made Britisii
Columbia famous and which will
figure with honor on the menu for
the interesting occasion. As a result there will be shortly despatched
to the caterers of the forthcoming
significant banquet a specially selected order of Tyee salmon, which
will go forward in cold storage. The
Tyee—which is the classic Chinook
for "Big Chief"—would certainly
appear to have been most appropriately chosen for a place of distinction on the menu for this dinner to
British Columbia's popular premier.

Stewart Hospital, are guests of Airs.

Pipes are Least Injurious According to
Report of Medical
leireltes    and    Cigars    Then
low  in  the Order
The  question  as  to  which   of  the
three forms of smoking, the pipe, the
cigarette or the cigar introduces the
greatest proportion  of nicotine  into
the smoker's system,  has never obtained a completely decisive answer,
although it has received considerable
discussion    from  time to  time,  says
American  Aledicine.    At one time it
was  freely asserted  that  the  tobacco    which    contained    the    highest
amount of nicotine necessarily tended to be the most injurious, no matter in what form it was smoked, but
now we know that the form of smok
ing plays an Important part.    There
was a theory that not in all    three
cases was the original nicotine in the
tobacco conveyed  as such     to    the
mouth;   sometimes  it  was  destroyed
by effective combustion,    while    at
other times pyridine was responsible
for  the  toxic effects.    According to
this  theory,  which   was all  on     the
right track, the cigarette was least
harmful,  because  the  tobacco  along
the thin paper wrapper was exposed
freely  to    the  air,  and  as  a  consequence  the  tobacco  was  well   burnt
and    the    nicotine    was    destroyed.
Against this it was held that in such
a  case one poison  disappeared  only
for another one to be elaborated and
carbon     monoxide     was    found     in
marked quantity as a poisonous constituent  of cigarette  smoke.     As  a
matter of fact, carbon monoxide  is
invariably    found     in    all     tobacco
smoke, and that circumstance should
be sufficient to warn    all    smokers
against inhaling it persistently. Theories as to what happens in the combustion  of  tobacco  in   the    various
ways it is smoked next took into account the extent to which condensation   products   were  formed  formed
and  retained  in  the    tobacco.     The
most effective condenser,  of course,
is the pipe, and there can be    little
doubt that owing to the length of the
stem  a  comparatively small  proportion  of these  condensation  products
reach the mouth.    In the cigar, on
the contrary, the condensing process
has a tendency to travel throughout
the cigar;  at all events, as the cigar
gets shorter  the condensed  product
area   gradually   reaches   the   month
and eventually the products are conveyed there by the heat of the burning end.    It has been said    by connoisseurs  that  no   cigar     is     worth
smoking after    one-half    of it  has
been  consumed, which  seems  to  be
a  practical realisation  of theoretical
considerations very  suitable for  application   by  millionaires.     Again,   a
cigar that has been partially smoked
and then allowed to go out is decidedly   unpleasant  when   relit,  owing,
doubtless to the spread of condensation products to the mouth end.    In
the  case  of  the   pipe,   the  burning
area is always In the same place;   it
never comes nearer the mouth, and
therefore, the probability Is that the
condensation   products  ilo not   reach
the mouth in, al any rate, appreciable quantities.    In the cigarette the
condensation     products      eventually
reach the. mouth, bul there is in this
case less chance    of    condensation
products forming, since the combination is unhampered, the tobacco being freely in contact with the   air.
The question of moisture, however,
must  nol  be left oul  in these considerations,   for   it   is   obvious   that
damp tobacco will form    condensation products more readily than dry
tobacco.    It Is probable,    therefore,
thai a dry cigar or cigarette give's off
le.-s poisonous products than n damp
one does, bul  nol  everyone smokes
from choice a new cigar or an old
cigarette,    it  is reasonable to conclude   that  the  amount  of  nicotine
reaching the mouth does nol  necessarily depend on the amount In the
tobacco, but on the form in which il
is smoked.    In drawing this conclusion, regard must, of course, be had
to  the  quantity  of  tobacco  smoked,
but If the conclusion  is correct,  the
pipe  would  come  first as  the  least
harmful   form   of   tobacco   smoking,
then  the cigarette and    lastly    the

The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
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 British Columbia. Does that start you thinking?
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.
Alining 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 hub
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.
about  will  only  be  feeders   to
city   and   port  of   ELLISON.
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 center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
STUDY THAT A1AP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
Grand Trunk Pacific has put Its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
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
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
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 and red fire. He
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.
STUDY      THAT      AIAP.—If      you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,     then     you
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
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not interested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with  the exception  of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at Its confluence with
the Bulkley. 'Sou 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 the 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. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the 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.
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 townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
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 v-60 for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the

| Fighting Joe Martin I
* *
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
If there were no other malcontents in the British House of Commons than the Hon. "Joe" Martin,
ex-Premier of British Columbia,
there would still be trouble brewing
for the Liberal Government, says a
London despatch.
As the Liberal member for the
East St. Pancras district of London,
Mr. Martin is taning an active part
In sifting the veto bill through the
fine sieve of Tory opposition. But
the sifting process is tedious, and
the strict discipline of the English
party whips is irksome to the western spirit.
So Air. Martin has joined the
swelling radical wing of the Liberals
in protesting against an excessive
amount of sand being used on the
progressive track. Some of this
sand, says Air. Martin, Is also being
thrown into the eyes of the Liberal
Raps Machine Domination
In short, Air. Martin continues to
be a good deal of an insurgent. His
special grievances are against the
machine domination of the cabinet
and the resulting growth of favoritism and patronage. His views represent a growing sentiment within
the Liberal party. This he explained
with his customary vigor in an interview the other day at Westminster.
"The great trouble with politics
over here is this," he said, in his
western flavor of speech, which is
one of the delights of the house,
"that the private member cannot get
into the cabinet except by patronage.
That means, of course, that the private member is, in the end, right
under the thumb of the cabinet.
Now ,our primitive way in Canada is
to have the cabinet responsible to its
supporters. In fact, the cabinet
exists there onl yto carry out the
wishes of the members of the majority party in the house.
"Here the practice is just the opposite. The British cabinet today is
more powerful than ever before in
its history. Private members seem
to exist only to keep the ministry in
power. Now some private members
care   .. j: :   - n.i.(   Sill"*-
lation the party has promised to the
people carried than keeping a particular ministry In power. I f eel
that way for one, and I don't think
the present ministry is fulfilling its
pledges. 1 have said so publicly, and
I generally say what I mean so it
will be understood.
Never Gets Speaker's Eye
' Consequently ,1 am not allowed
to speaK from the floor of the house.
Like a score of other radical offenders, x am not on the list of names
which my party's whips have handed
to the speaker. So I do not catch
his eye. Aly questions are evaded;
sometimes they are ignored. My
letters are not even acknowledged.
"The reason tor all this," contin
tied Mr. Martin, in so calm a tone
that no one would think he was uttering one of the boldest of party
heresies, "is patronage, pure and
simple. It holds all the funds necessary to help members fight their
elections. It controls all the honors
and distinctions which mark a politician s visible rise. And it will take
to Itself only those men who will
make themselves nothing more than
a cog in the machine.
"And then the concessions that
are ade over our heads! We never
would allow them for a moment if
we could stop them—but we can't.
Only the other day, a big concession
was handed out to the large Tory
landowners which resulted in 69 of
us, all good Liberals, voting against
the Government. That's all we can
do who want to keep the Government up to its pledges—vote against
it. It's the only thing which will
ever bring it to its senses.
"No Room for Us"
"As Hilalre Belloc—the Liberal
who has pust written up the party
system—has said, there is a plain
working understanding between the
governing groups in the two parties.
You only have to sit in the house to
see that one won't force the other
beyond a certain limit. And we who
feel the real revolution in British
thought and want to express it In a
democratic chamber—well, there's
no room for us.
"It is curious that his party patronage has revived an older form of
patronage which most Englishmen
have thought was dead—that is the
inefficient •faithfuls' are raised to
cabinet headships, the Tory permanent officials soon  get out of hand.
"The class meeling and personal
snobbery which they say is increasing within the civil service Is wholly
due to the fact, that the supposedly
democratic ministry is not genuinely
watchful against it. And it is also
due to the fact that they are trying
a  little  patronage  of their  own.
"Back in Canada," concluded Mr.
Martin, with a humorous sparkle In
his eye, which showed that one can
be a fighter without bitterness, "1
kept the permanent officials in their
places. I took their figures and their
advice—and then did as I pleased."

Cliere  Will    Be   One    Hundred    and
Seventy   Brought  Into   Existence During This Summer
By the end of the coming summer
there will be at least 170 new towns
in Canada, not counting those which
came into existence gradually and in
the natural course of evolution from
clusters of houses, into hamlets, and
then into towns. The 170 will all be
In the west—the great, the glorious
west. Not for them the humdrum
processes of conventional development; they will spring, full panoplied, into being, with hotels, courthouses, jails and all the modern Improvements, on paper, and a small
railroad station, a mile or so of siding and unbounded hope and confidence in the future as actual assets.
The Canadian Pacific will be responsible for fifty of them, the Grand
Trunk Pacific, for twenty-four, and
the Canadian Northern for ninety-
six, it is a fair supposition that all
of them will live because of the fostering care of their railroad, and
that most of them will prosper because the time has come for towns
to succeed farms at selected locations on the prairies, and the railroads are in a better position to do
tbe selecting than any other instrumentality except land companies.
Nor will these railroad towns be the
only communities to come into being in the west In the next three or
four months, but from their number
it  is possible to draw some  kind  ot
an Impression of the method and the
favoritism in the civil service. When speed of western development.
Hon. C. Yada, Imperial Japanese
consul in Vancouver, speaking in
connection wit lithe debate on Canada's relations with Japan, which
took place at Ottawa, stated that,
from bis viewpoint, he did not see
that any valid reason had been advanced against the Dominion becoming a party to a renewal of the present trade treaty between Great Britain and his country.
The way to look at the matter. In
Air. Yada's opinion, should be with
regard to future trade possibilities,
and not what had been accomplished
in that direction in the past. The
geographical positions of the two
countries guaranteed a steady
growth in the interchange of their
commodities, and as the business
men of Canada and Japan were becoming better acquainted, he had no
fear for the future.
He wondered why Canada could
not compete with the United States
In regard to the exportation of wheat
and flour to Japan, the United Stales
last year having sent produce valued
at between $3,000,000 and $4,000,-
000. He did not know whether it
was due to excessive transportation
charges, or a failure to grasp opportunities. Whatever the cause, he
was sure that if Canada sent agents
to Japan to look over the field and
back up the efforts of the resident
trade commissioner, it would bo
highly beneficial. Tlie Japanese were
becoming increasingly large consumers of foreign articles, and afforded a continual market for thousands of tons of news print, the supply of which was, at present, received from Germany, Norway and
the United States. There W'as no apparent reason why Canada should
not compete on favorable terms.
At the present time the balance of
trade was in favor of Japan by
$1,500,000, due to the rice, tea and
silk Imported by the Dominion. The
Canadian smelters, however, were
alive to the opportunities, and Canadian pig lead was fast displacing
other foreign products. Equal enterprise  in other lines would  cause

Tin: a. r. p. taxation
In a few days Charles Al. Hays,
president of the Grand Trunk Pacific, and other officials of that company will be in the city and will
be in negotiation with the city council looking to a settlement of the
taxation question. There is no denying that there is a strong hope existing among the citizens that an
agreement may be reached that will
remove this cause for a certain
amount of friction between the company and the city.
It is idle to theorize on this sub
ject. The citizens of Prince Rupert
are more concerned in the material
advancement of the city and with it
their own welfare than they are in
any academic questions affecting
Dependent upon the premises
taken and the theories of taxation
accepted, it can be proven that the
Grand Trunk Pacific should bear all
the taxes in Prince Rupert, or be exempt altogether. No particularly
good purpose, however, is served by
such arguments. The citizens have
to face the situation as it exists and
takin geverything into consideration
decide what is the proper course to
pursue in their own interests.
It is idle to lay down a basis for
settlement now. We have always
argued that the two sides should
get together and arrange a basis of
settlement that should be acceptable
to both sides, if that is at all possible. Tlie question to be decided is
one of policy purely.
> Selected for This Year's Rendezvous Between British Columbia und  Alberta
At the bead of the Alpine meadow
formiii gthe hanging valley directly
over Sherbrooke lake, close to the
Great Divide which marks the
boundary between Alberta and British Columbia and the apex of the
watershed of the west, the sixth annual camp of the Alpine Club of Canada will be hel dthis summer. The
camp will be opened on July 2G, and
closed on August  4.
The camp is for the purpose of
enabling members of the club to
meet in the mountain regions ot
Canada, and graduating members to
receive the assistance of the club in
qualifying for active membership.
Accommodation is provided for one
hundred persons.
"The Great Divide Camp" is
perched at a height of 6,300 feet
above the sea level, and is reached
from the nearest railway station,
Hector a distance of three miles, by
pony trail. Sherbrook meadow lies
in one of the most beautiful valleys
in the main range of the Canadian
Rockies. On the east rise the slopes
of the rugged ridge between Mounts
Bosworth and Daly, which divides
the waters of the Atlantic from
those of the Pacific. On the west
the Mount Ogden ridge shuts off the
famous Yoho Valley. The meadow
is open grass land interspersed in
every direction by a network of
streams fed by the glacial torrents
from the snow and ice masses on
either ide of Mount Niles.
Rock precipices at the head of the
meadow show cave-like recesses
often used by wild goat and several
times by pioneer explorers who have
made first ascents of neighboring
peaks, while to the east, a narrow
defile through which rushes a glacial
torrent leads to the snow pass between Alount Niles and Daly. Here
are sunny park-like uplands dotted
with waving spruce trees and brilliant with flowers that only grow at
these altitudes.
The official climbs for members
wishing to graduate this year are:
Alount Daly, 10,332 feet and Pope's
Peak, 10,355 feet above sea level.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway proposes to spend between nine
and ten million dollars for the improvement of its terminal facilities In
Montreal. The plans are now before
the railway commission. They embrace the elevation of the tracks between Bonaventure station and Turcot yards, and from St. Henri to the
Point St. Charles yards. The work
as contemplated also includes the
erection of new freight and passenger terminals at Bonaventure.

"The total investment of Britisii
capital in Canada is now $2,100,-
000,000," continued Air. Palmer.
"There has been in London during
the past twelve months a wonderful
awakening to the investment possibilities of Canada. The result is that
anything with a Canadian labol on it
goes in London if it is any good
at all.
"Of course, there are dangers In
such a boom—for it may almost be
called a boom. No securities of an
inferior nature should be offered in
Loudon by Canadians, because such
offerings would not take long to
injure Canadian credit in the metropolis."
"What is the feeling among Old
Country financiers and investors toward the Fielding-Knox reciprocity
agreement?" Air.  Palmer was asked.
"The general feeling in Great
Britain is one of grave anxiety," was
the reply. "It is felt there that it is
a pity that, when everything was
going along so nicely, Canada should
desire to take a step which, to say
the least, is fraught with danger to
"That there Is danger in this step
surely cannot be denied. President
Taft's address before the American
Newspaper Publishers a little while
ago was nothing short of a declaration of commercial war with the
British Empire."

Born eighty-one years ago, and
himself the leader of a successful
and bloody revolution in 1S75, ex-
President Diaz, of Alexico, after a
remarkable carrer, has been compelled in turn to resign as the result
of the insurrection of Francesco
Bitterly opposed by young progressive .Mexico, Diaz held office so
long because of the difficulty of
finding a successor. He has played
a prominen part In the building up
of modern Alexico. In 1847 he
doffed his lawyer's gown and girded
on the sword when the United States
invaded Alexico, and from that stirring period on he has been a soldier
and a statesman.
He is said by those who know him
to possess the sublety of the Indian,

To the Editor of The Journal:
Having just recovered from a serious operation, performed in your
city hospital—for double hernia—
I wish to bear testimony to the
efficiency of the institution and the
unexcelled skill of the medical and
surgical profession of Prince Rupert.
There are, I understand, eight
doctors here. Among these are
pecialists in all branches of medical
science and I thought it would be
well to say that my physician, during
my illness, was Dr. Kergin, of whom
I cannot speak too highly. His undoubted skill and courtesy, it would,
1 am sure, be bard to equal.
I think the directors of the hospital board are to be congratulated
on having such an excellent staff of
nurses and such a capable and kindly matron as Aliss McTavish, who is
well known in this northern country.
It would be impossible to get together more capable nurses than
those in the hospital of this city.
These ladies have graduated from
the hospitals of London and Boston
and other large cities, consequently
they have had a most valuable experience.
Sir, I have great plasure in stating
tha tl think the Prince Rupert General Hospital is one of the city's
greatest assets.
I beg to remain,

British Capital,  However, Is Fearful
of the Proposed Reciprocity Agreement
"Three hundred and seventy-five
millions of British capital came to
Canada for investment last year, and
from present indications I have no
hesitation whatever In predicting
that the half-billion dollar mark will
be reached during the year 1911."
This statement was made by Mr.
W. Leonard Palmer a leading member of the editorial staff of the London,  England,  Financial  News.
Air. Palmer is touring Canada in
the interests of the Empire Section
of   his  paper—a   weekly   feature  in
The proposal to establish an international game preserve which
would take in the Glacier park in
Montana with a piece of Alberta
and a portion of the southeast portion of British Columbia, was laid
before Premier McBride by the
Camp Fire Club of America in New
York. The scheme would involve
the extension of the Waterton Lakes
park In Alberta, and the setting
aside of twenty or thirty miles In
British Columbia commonly known
as the Flathead district.
The matter is being referred to
Air. Bryan Williams, provincial game
warden, for consideration. From remarks made by Air. Williams he
does not appear to think the scheme
very practical or very desirable. He
points out that the province has already a game preserve In East Kootenay, which is a much better one
than the new one It Is proposed to
create. It Is not disturbed by mining or timber leases, while the area
proposed to be set aside is covered
with coal, oil and timber leases.
Apart from all this there must be
very great difficulty in administering so large an area under three different governments. The scheme
above outlined has been recommended by Mr. Howard Douglas, Dominion commisisoner of parks. An argument advanced in favor of it is that
under present conditions, an American hunter can step over the boundary and shoot game In Canada,
while the Canadian sportsmen findB
on reaching the International boundary that he also is at the boundary
of a game preserve and has to halt.

Silver Fox Pelt Sells for $500 in Edmonton—Bad   Trapping
An extra large silver fox, half-
black, brought into Edmonton from
the Lesser Slave Lake by C. W. Wan-
nacott, a well-known northern trapper, was purchased by J. K. Cornwall M. P. P., for $500. The animal
is half-black, or a much higher figure would have been brought by the
"The past winter has been one of
the worst trapping seasons on record," said Air. Wannacott in conversation. "The catch of the average
trapper does not amount to more
than $20 for the whole season, and
I have been fortunate in securing
one valuable fur. In addition to the
silver fox I secured 90 rats and one
red fox and forty, weasels."
During the summer Mr. Wannacott hopes to obtain a job as an engineer on one of the Canadian roads.
Before he went Into the trapping
business he was engaged for a number of years on the Michigan Central. In the fall he will again set
out for the wilds, where he will
spend the winter In trapping In the
Pine River country. He left Edmonton last fall on October 27.

to marry a girlhood sweetheart, A.
L. Cathcart, of Winnipeg, Alan..
Miss Victoria and Cathcart were
sweethearts in Leeds, Eng,, some
years ago. They quarreled, and
young Cathcart emigrated to Manitoba, where he made a large fortune. They had not heard directly
from each other since their quarrel
in England, when Cathcart saw Aliss
Victoria's name on a show bill In
Winnipeg, and, although he was uncertain whether she was the girl he
had known in Leeds, he went to the
theatre. When she came on the stage
he knew her at once, and sent his
card, with a request to see her after
the show. Aliss Victoria remembered
him. She was willing to forgive
and forget their quarrel, and before
he left the theatre that night they
were engaged.
Colonel Thompson, hearing of the
engagement, was afraid that Miss
Victoria would not appear In Chicago, and at once telegraphed to Vancouver, where she Is at present.
Mr. Cathcart and Miss Victoria
will be married In Chicago on May
30, and will start on their honeymoon at once. They will go to England, where they will make their
future home.

About the end of this month the
new Northern Steamship Company's
steamer Britisii Empire will arrive
from Grangemouth, Scotland, to replace the Petriana, which was purchased by the Canadian Northern
Pacific Fisheries Company, on the
run to northern British Columbia
ports. She was reported leaving
Coronel on Alay 2, having called
there to take on bunker coal.
The Britisii Empire is making one
of the longest passages from the Old
Land ever recorded against a steamer, owing to the fact that she was
detained at the Cape Verde Islands
as a result of disabled machiuery.
While making the run to her first
coaling port the vessel's mechanism
gave trouble and she had to await
the arrival of new parts from England before she could proceed. It
was expected that she would have
been here in time for the spring
rusu to the nortli, but the delay at
the Atlantic islands has caused her
to miss the greater part of this.
Upon arrival she will be overhauled and immediately placed in
the coasting service, operating alternately with the Cetriana, which has
been on the run aloue since the
Petriana was sold. The Britisii
Empire is a good sized boat and Is
able to handle one thousand tons of
freight. Another new vessel is coming to this coast from the Old Country for the Northern Steamship Company of a larger type than the British Empire. She will be able to
carry 1,500 tons of cargo and will
operate between Victoria, Vancouver, northern Britisii Columbia and
Alaskan ports. The company hopes
to secure a large amount of the copper shipments  sent south.
Great Britain's "Princess Royal"
type of battleship cruisers, now under construction, present as great a
revolution in sea fighting machines
as did  the  first Dreadnought.
Driver at a speed of 30 knots (approximately 34 <A miles an hour)
and provided with a main battery
of eight 13.5-inch guns, these wonderful fighting machines could, it is
said, meet and severely punish the
most powerful British battleship
now in commission without much
risk of heing harmed In return. To
make the point still clearer the battleship cruiser, driven nt high speed
by Its turbines, could maneouvre at
a distance of from 500 to 900 yards
beyond the effective range of the 12-
inch guns of the present Dreadnoughts and hurl her own projectiles
The eight 13.5-inch guns of the
battleship cruisers are on the centre
line, and can be fired on either
broadside, while four may be fired
ahead and two astern. The bridge
and superstructure have nearly disappeared on these ships and only a
single tripod mast and a light mast
to carry the wlrelesB aerials and signals are In evidence. The big-gun
barbettes instead of being round,
have a series of angles to throw off
the enemy's shells.

Something    Went    Wrong with  the
Departmental Business at
For several months past the city
of New Westminster has been endeavoring to have the British Columbia Electric Railway Company's high
power wires across the Fraser River
at the New Westminster bridge
raised to a sufficient height to allow-
deep sea sailing vessels to pass up
an ddown the river without lowering their masts. The question has
been taken up by the Royal City
Council, Board of Trade and Pilot
Board with the B. C. Electric Company, the Provincial and Dominion
Governments and with the Railway
When the question was brought
before the Railway Commission recently the opinion prevailed in New
Westminster that it would be speedily adjusted. A few mornings ago,
however, Mayor Lee received two
letters from Ottawa, both dated May
1. One was from the department of
public works to the effect that the
question of the height of the high
power wires at New Westminster
was now in the hands of the Railway Commission for settlement; the
other was from the Railway Commission stating that the department
of public works was dealing with
this question of high power wires.
The wires across the river at the
bridge are 165 feet above high water
mark. In order to accommodate all
sailing vessels it. is necessary that
these wires be at least 210 feet
above high water mark. A suggestion has been made that the wires
might, be carried by cable on the
bottom of the river.
How It Broke from Centre of Train,
Rolled Down Embankment
and  Not .Missed
In the records of the Wabash division headquarters at Springfield, 111.,
the story of the strange disappearance of a box car is now down In
black and white to refute the doubts
of those who refused to believe it
when it was told by word of mouth
a short time ago.
The car is of the refrigerator type,
and was lost out of a train on Barry
Hill, in Pike County, Illinois, and
was never missed until the conductor checked up his train at the Missouri division headquarters, which
he reached ten hours later.
And during the hours that the rest
of the train was speeding toward the
neighboring state, the lost lar was
lying bottom side up in a creek near
ly 200 feet below the level of the
A complete record of the affair
written by the conductor of the
fi eight, is on file at the division offices. Passenger train No. 4, east
bound, was speeding toward the hill
when the engineer noticed the track
ahead was in poor shape. The rails
were torn up and the ties twisted.
He brought his train to a stop and
investigated. Peering about for the
cause of the damaged rails, he
glanced down into the gully. To his
surprise, an upturned refrigerator
car, lying 200 feet below, appeared
to account for the accident.
At the next station the crew of the
passenger train made a complete report of the occurrence, including the
number of the car, which they could
distinguish, despite the distance below the rails.
As there were no reports of an ac-
the cldent at that point, officials of
the division headquarters began an
investigation. It developed that the
extra freight, west bound, had
passed the scene of the accident
some time before the passenger train
was due.
a message to the Allssourl division
offices had registered in but that no
report of such an occurrence had
been made. A few minutes later the
conductor of the freight discovered
he was one car short. A refrigerator
car, thirty cars behind the engine,
was missing. Comparison of numbers showed that this particular bit
of rolling stock was lying in the bed
of the creek at Barry.
In the official report the following explanation of the accident was
"Going down hill, the engineer
had toapply the air several times to
retard the momentum of the train.
It was between applications that the
refrigerator car, which was not connected with the air hose, jumped the
track and pulled away from the car
"For some reason the refrigerator
turned crosswise across the tracks.
There Is a heavy grade at this point
and as the car turned it swung up
I nthe air and toppled over the embankment.
"'ixiis caused the rear coupling of
the refrigerator car to slide out of
the coupler of the one following. As
the rear section of the train remained on the rails on the downhill
journey, it soon overtook the front
section and the gap left by the missing rolling stock was made at that
instant and the train proceeded on
its journey.
"While this was happening, the
engineer suspected, from the working of the air that something was
wrong. He spoke to the head brake-
man about it. It was dark, however, and the brakeman, after hasty
inspection, reported all was well."
Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound
Railway    Has    Model
The officials of the Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound Railway
Company invited the public of Seattle a few days ago to inspect the new
all-steel train which will afford a
new and direct communication between the coast cities and Chicago.
That his pride was justified could be
seen when a trip was made over the
handsome equipment which the railway company has supplied for the
use of the public. That the public
appreciated the curtesy of being allowed an inspection of the train was
shown by the very large number
which constantly streamed through
the cars all Friday afternoon. It
was an auspicious day for the Chicago, Alilwaukee & Puget Sound
Railway Company. To get to the
train, one had to pass through the
magnificent new station, recently
completed at a cost of approximately
a million dollars.
The all-steel train, inaugurating a
new service, is the last word in railway equipment, with every detail
worked out to a nicety. With the
nine cars empty the total weight is
equal to that of a loaded freight
train, and, to maintain a passenger
speed, monster engines have been
supplied. Previous figures have been
exceeded. The engines are of record
size, weighing 385,000 pounds; the
parlor and buffet car is 153,600
pounds, many thousand pounds
heavier than the ordinary car of its
size; the diner weighs 160,000
pounds, and the sleepers 152,300
pounds each.
The steel construction makes
them non-combustible, anti-telescop
ing and indestructible. Between the
steel frame and the interior mahogany finish is an air space which will

winter, the heating apparatus is so
arranged that the temperature of
each stateroom may be regulated to

has been given to sanitation. Plush

Remarkable  Discovery  in   Boundary
Country Comes into Prominence
An iron expert named Smoot recently made a visit to a new group
of claims on Alexis or Old Tom
Creek, which empties Into the Simil-
kameen River about a mile below
Coldwater Creek near Ashnola station, which lies about halfway between Hedley and Keremeos.
The locations were made by
Messrs. Todd and Betterton and
Alike Costello on a discovery made
by Costello about ten years ago, but
all Alike saw of it then was tlie capping and since then they have
broken through the capping and
come into a  fine body of hematite.
The new locations consist of
eleven claims known as the Waterside group, numbering from near the
mouth of the creek as Waterside No.

Ten years ago Mike showed samples of the capping to M. K. Rodgers
who had a test made of it and is said
to have obtoined 45 per cent iron,
but the railway was then a thing
scarcely thought of, let alone being
within any measurable distance of
completion, and there was no encouragement to take hold of propositions of that kind. In all probability Mr. Rodgers had forgotten all
about it since then and as the result
of the little lapse in memory may
have let a good thing slip through
his fingers.
From reports to hand there ap-
p.ears to be no limit to the extent of
the find as no less than five dykes
have been discovered of which the
smallest if 90 feet wide and the
widest 220 feet, which it is claimed
by the locators that they can trace
them for a distance of three miles
The sample of ore taken from one
of the dykes certainly has the earmarks of genuine hematite and the
only evidence of the presence of
troublesome compounds is a little
splashing of mispickel noticeable
here and there on the sample. Arsenic, however, is not the bugbear in
metallurgical processes that it once
was, and the amount of sulphur
which the little bit of mispickel observable in the specimen would introduce into the product is not likely
to make it "hot-short."
Smoot, the expert who made the
examination, is said to have been
rather astonished at what he saw
and cannot understand how it has
lain so long when the existence of
the deposit was known so long ago.
Two other experts from New York
are expected shortly to make a more
thorough and extended examination
and meanwhile a couple of men are
now at work doing a little stripping
and getting trails in shape.
Zinc in Good Demand Roth Here and
in Spokane
"Lead ores and consequently lend
mine3 are in better demand than
they have been for a long time,"
says M. Scliott, of Denver, Colo.,
general manager of the Ohio and
Colorado Smelting Company, and
manager of the American Metal
Company, Limited. The Ohio and
Colorado Company, until last week,
had the handling of the entire output of the Hecla mine of Burke,
Idaho, at Its Salida (Colo.) smelter,
that ore supply has now been contracted to the International Smelting
and Refining Company, Air. Scliott is
looking around for other available
"When it comes down to lead, we
cannot at present handle any ores
mined In Canada, so we are looking
very closely after all the new properties that are being developed In
northern Idaho. So far as zinc Is
concerned, we can handle British

Joe Chamberlain Believes Move Will
Mark First Step in Reversal
of  National  Policy
At Manchester at a practical demonstration, a letter was read from
Joe Chamberlain, in which he wrote:
"This is the critical time for our
preference policy and in view of the
proposed reciprocity between Canada
and tile United States, advantage
ought to be taken of the imperial
conference to make some offer to
Canada and the overseas dominions.
I still believe that it is the only way
that the empire can be straightened
and kept together. The English people have an opportunity perhaps for'
the last time, of uniting the empire.
Let  it not be lost."
Austin Chamberlain, speaking at
the meeting, said lie believed reciprocity would mark the first step in
the great reversal of the national
policy of Canada, which for generations had been the common policy of
both its great parties and to which it
owed its extraordinary and magnificent development. "What will bo
the effect on our trade" said Mr,
Chamberlain, "if these new competitors, the most powerful and highly
organized, were Introduced into markets where we had the first invitation?"

Refining Discovery Made in Toronto Has
Been Purchased at High
Sir   Donald   Mann   Has   Taken   Over
Interest in (In- Company
The Island Smell inn and Refining
Company, of Toronto, wlicn sprang
into existence a few yearc ago
through the researches of Dr. J. s.
Island in the' back room of his
dental effic, has been sold t'j -;e
Donald Munn, nf Mackenzie and
Mann, lor Ihe sum of seven million
Dr. Isliud has confirmed the report. Under the conditions of tram
fer of the secret process for which
Dr. Island searched for year3, together with all apparatus, and the
services of the inventor, the holders
of stock in the Island Smelting and
Refining Company will receive approximately seven millions for their
holdings which will represent an
enormous profit on their original Investment. Payment will be in stock,
Sir Donald Mann and his associates
retaining about three millions.
The story of the transaction contains several elements of peculiar interest, inasmuch as the inventor was
for many years a practicing dentist
in Toronto, and during spare hou.s
patiently developed his theories of
the profitable extraction of precious
metals from low grade ores. Upon
that boal, which had brought failure
and financial ruin to many predecessors, he concentrated his attentirn
and success came at last. Today,
through the negotiations for the
new company he finds himself several  times a millionaire.
The process by which the former
dentist has overcome one of the
greatest problems of the mining
world, namely, the successful and
profitable extraction of valuable
metals from low g.Crade ores which
have formerly been cast away upon
the "dump" or left unmined in tbe
earth, was described guardedly by
Dr.  Island.
"It is not an electrical process,
said he, "but purely chemical. There
are no refractory metals as far as
the scope of my invention is con
corned. It consists of the application of hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid to ores which converts
the mineral salts into soluble salts."
While the above revelation will
hardly enable an outsider to turn his
Backyard into a river of gold it is
nevertheless the basis of a ten million dollar secret.
It is not regarded as at all surprising that the eyes of Sir Donald Mann
should have turned covetously upon
such a practical and precious idea
as was represented in the discovery.
Of recent years the Mackenzie and
Mann oney has gone extensively into
mining properties, particularly In
iron mines west and north of Lake
Superior and in other localities
which branch lines from the Canadian Northern system could reach.
Tlie application of the process to
the ores of such properties is understood to be worth untold fortunes, as
would likewise be the exclusive control of the scheme in Canada, and
the rights for its sale in other countries. A highly Important factor in
inducing the present large price for
Dr. Island's holdings was the fact
that the patents have been secured
upon it, giving full protection.
About two years ago the Mann interests offered six millions cash for
the secret, which was refused. It is
understood thai in addition to the
Inventor's   Bhare    holdings, a large
portion Of the balance is ill the
hands of Toronto men, although
United States money is also represented. Mr. John Douglas, a well-
known Canadian mining man, is
ting not only an adequate return on
the capital invested, but that the reserves of the mines can be conserved
at will.
There are fifty-seven producing
mines in the United States, Canada
and Mexico, twenty-six of them contributing three-quarters of the total
copper production, or about 950,-
000,000 pounds—fifteen oilier properties produce practically 95 ]>«'i"
ei'iit of the balance or the production, or 330,000,000 pounds, while
sixteen other properties contribute
only ee few million pounds apiece and
dee not count much in the total output, Three-quarters of the country's
production is controlled by five different groups as follows:
Amalgamated 2 7 r., 000,000
Guggenheim 200,000,000
Phelps-Dodge    1 7e_.,000,000
Cole-Ryan 160,000,000
Calumet & Heda 140,000,000
Three-quarters of Country's Production Controlled in rive Different Groups
Of the total production of copper
in the United States, Mexico and
Canada, of about 1,300,000,000
pounds per annum, is Is easily conceivable how under liberal laws, the
construction of which will soon be
determined by the decisions of the
I'nited States Supreme Court, the
copper industry of the United States
can be controlled with a view of the
producing mines of the country get-
Total     950,000,000
The other big properties which are
independent are as follows.
Cerro de Pasco    38,000,000
United Verde    35,000,000
Arizona Copper 35,000,000
Boleo    30,000,000
Copper  Range    35,000,000
Granby 26,000,000
U. S. Smelting    25,000,000
Stanton   Cos    22,000,000
Quincy 22,000,000
Shannon IS,000,000
East Butte 12,000,000
Tennessee        12,000,000
British Columbia 10,000,000
Ohio  Copper       10,000,000
Total 330,000,000
Of the above 330,000,000 pounds,
163 000,000 pounds is sold throughout agencies controlled by the "Big
Five," thereby placing under control
of the agencies in question nearly
1,100,000,000 pounds of production,
and leaving absolutely independent
the production of seven companies,
most of whom sell directly to the
trade, although one of the seven, the
United Verde, converts most of its
copper into wire through an affiliated company, while the Boleo copper all goes to Europe direct.
The object of the above is to show
that it, is onl ya question of the
"Big Five" getting together to control the situation and it is quite possible that under such control several
of the properties in the independent
class might be secured. In connection with the above it is only worthy
of note that the new copper producers which will be coming forward
with new production this year and
next, are already more or less affiliated with the "Big Five."
Irritant  Placed  in  Shells  Which  Induce the Formation of
how man co-operates with the
oyster in forming pearls was described in a paper read before the
Royal Society of Arts.
Noel Heaton, the lecturer, did
much to destroy the glamor which
surrounds the famous gem. The
shells of living oysters are pried
open and irritant foreign matter introduced. As a consequence the
oyster deposits layers of calcium carbonate round the substance and the
ultimate result is a pearl.
Artificially made pearls are merely spheres of opalescent glass, coated inside wiih a preparation of fish
scales and filled up solid with wax.
"It is worthy of note, however,"
said Mr. Heaton, "that imitation
pearls are unique among Imitation
gems in that In some respects they
are actually superior to the natural
irticie. They arc considerably
harder, for Instance, and (heir lustre
Is not affected hy constant wear."
The lecturer divested many pre-
ious stones of their romance by
causing his hearers to regard them
with  tne cold eyes of science.
The turquoise, for Instance, in
chemical tormula is just hydrous
aluminum phosphate, A sapphire is
but a lump of oxide of aluminum.
Moreover, all precious stones at
the present time can be more or less
successfully manufactured, and In
some cases it is extremely difficult
to tell the man-made gem from the
natural earth-formed stone.
Speaking of the color of precious
stanes, Mr. Heaton said that the tendency still lingered (0 regard all red
states as rubles, green stones as emeralds, and so on.
"Color is really quite an accident
property of precious stones," he said.
"The substance of which nearly
every species of transparent gem  is'

The difference between a real thing and an imitation of it is illustrated by the difference between
eer and beers that seek to resemble
The nearest to the original that imitators ever came was in
the counterfeiting of our label. But they have never pro-
ckcecl a beer that in any way equals "Budweiser," nor can
they ever.

Cut stones of the corundum group
artificially produced can now be obtained, said Mr. Heaton, in every variety of color.
"For all practical purposes tbe artificial ruby is a ruby," was the
somewhat startling statement made
by the lecturer.

Crowd    Will    Be    Served
Meals   in  Connection
witli Ceremony
The work of preparing for the
Coronation entertainment which the
King will give to 100,000 poor children of London at the Crystal Palace on June 30, is well under way.
Sir William Carrington states that
the committee entrusted to carry out
the King's wishes, declared absolute
impartiality is to lie shown so that
school children of every denomination should be properly represented.
Although not officially stated,
there is every reason to believe that
the King and Queen will be present
in the course of the afternoon at the
entertainment at the Crystal Palace.
Most probably they will be accompanied by Princess Mary and one or
two of her brothers.
It is assumed that the chosen
100,000 will be marshalled like an
army and converge upon Sydenham
by various routes. Probably the local railways for a certain time in
the day will concentrate their energies on the transport of this army.
Every child will bear his or her own
name and address in writing, and
will also carry a distinguishing ticket or rosette, indicating by color and
by numerals the particular school
and locality. It is hoped, also, that
each girl will wear a white dress or
sash and each boy a white tie. Once
within the gales of the Crystal Palace there should be little difficulty.
The staff there is accustomed to invasions of football enthusiasts for
the Cup Final numbering from 100,-
00 to 140,000 and in the summer various organizations bring to Sydenham many thousands of children.
The King's guests will arrive between 11 and 12:30 and stay until
between 6 and 7 o'clock. Dinner
and tea will be served, if fine, at
long trestle tables on the grass, but
if wet the meals will be served in
relays within the Palace. For dinner the children will have cold
meats, pies, pastries, with lemonade;
and at tea bread and butter, jam and
Each of the favored children will
be given from the King a specially
designed Coronation beaker of Rayol
Doulton ware. They are to be of
the same shape as those made for
King Edward, and on the occasions
of the Jubilees of Queen Victoria.
His Majesty has supplied a special
portrait of himself in the uniform of
an admiral of the fleet for reproduction on the beaker.
Apart from a generous programme
of amusements and a monster tea,
the children will be given probably
their first glimpse of the greatness
of the British Empire. The King
has chosen the Crystal Palace, with
Its Festival of Empire, as the venue
for this reason—to Impress on the
juvenile mind some understanding
of the vast community of English-
speaking countries of which they
form an Inappreciable part.
Mr. Frank Lascelles will superintend the direction of a special performance of the Pageant of Empire,
lasting half an hour. A Royal box
is to be erected for Their Majesties.
Subsequentl ythe children are to
be taken in batches for a trip round
the Empire on the "All-Red Route"
railroad.    This wil lenable them to
see the Parliament buildings of Newfoundland, Britain's oldest colony,
with its paper-making and whaling
and other industries, together with
the harbor of St. John's; the great
wheat prairies and cattle ranches of
Canada, and the parliament buildings at Ottawa; various crown colonies, with a Malay village and a sugar plantation in Jamaica.
India will be visited and Delhi,
where the King is to be crowned in
person Emperor of India. From India the young voyagers will travel to
Australia and New Zealand, where
the gold and diamond mines will be
shown in operation.

Report Upon  the Mineral Deposits on
Prince Royal
A Field  for .Mining Close to  Prince
Rupert That Promises
It is always pleasant to be able
to record any successful achievements which have resulted from the
expenditure of local capital and the
enterprise of local mining men. It
frequently happens that the ventures
which receive the least publicity are
really the most reliable in the end
for relying entirely on their own resources they either make good and
then create surprise or else fade into
oblivion and never ruffle the surface
of the mining field when it happens
to be calm—which is not often in
these days of compressed energy
says W. Oliphant Bell in the News-
Advertiser. Not many people are
aware that Princess Royal Island,
lying quite close to the coast of Brit
isb Columbia, between the extreme
north end of Vancouver Island and
Prince Rupert, has been the scene of
mining operations for some time
past. The island itself is a large one
and contains several lakes, besides
several natural resources, the chief
of which promises to be mining. The
Surf inlet Gold .Mining Company,
which is largely financed by Vancouver capital, is now putting this
to the test, and from all appearances, judging particularly by the
ore, a considerable bulk sample of
which is now on exhibition In one of
the local broker's windows, there is
every reason to believe that payable
conditions can be met with, and indeed, if the following report is
strictly correct, have actually been
discovered. The scene of the present operations is about eight miles
from deep water, reached for the
most part by water across the chain
of lakes referred to, which offer a
portage, and thence by trail about a
mile and a half in length. This report has been furnished by Mr. Fred
M. Wells, who has been in charge of
operations during the past winter,
and was one of the original promoters of the company, It will be noticed that Hie report is really a record of the work actually performed,
and the hypothetical element is not
conspicuous, which speaks well for
the veracity of the information furnished. The writer has examined
:ln- ore brought down, and if il is
representative of the vein as a whole
eiml contains ihe values stated,
which in view of the visible gold to
be seen in some of the quartz is
highly probable, there is some justification for hoping that this section
of the Coast district will furnish Its
regular quota of bullion to the general returns. The folowing is the
report on the season's work:
"The winter's work practically began in November, 1910, and this report will refer io work done since
that time. The working force during the early winter wag very small,
but was increased to seven men,
which force was continued through
the winter. Quite a lot of time was
necessarily given in the fall to getting In supplies so that real work
only began on the mine about the
first of January.
"After considering the several different points on the property, where
the winter work could be done to
advantage, it was finally decided to
drive ahead on the 300-foot tunnel,
following the vein. This plan was
carried out, and up to the sixth of
March an advance of a little over 50
feet was made. The vein up to the
end of the 300-foot tunnel has been
fully descrived in previous reports,
and it will be remembered that the
vein was rather weak at end of tunnel and low in values.
"During the previous summer
about ten feet had been drifted,
which showed the ore increasing In
size and since that time the entire
drift has been in ore with a full face
at the time of writing. The foot-
wall has been kept in touch with and
the hanging wall has not been
broken into throughout this distance. The ore is very similar in
character to that passed through
along the first part of the tunnel,
white quartz and iron pyrite and
beautifully banded.
"The tunnel has exposed about
eight feet in average width of ore
but it would be safe to figure on
there being ten feet and the indira
tions are that ore body is even wider
"The gold values of the new ore
body are even more remarkable than
its size, and at a depth with other
existing conditions guaranteeing its
permanency. The ore has been sampled each day as the tunnel proceeded, taking large and general samples
from the muck, checking up in the
face and from the dump outside, and
all assays have been made by Mr. J.
O'SulIivan, with an especial guarantee of their accuracy, and the result
of forty-five such samples gives a
total avoreage of two ounces of gold
per ton. The lowest assay received
was $12, and the highest $96. Considering the fact that the results
represent nothing but general samples, with no specimen assaying,
they establish a $40 average for the
whole 50 feet of drift, which in so
large a vein is uncommon, and of a
very promising character.
"The undeveloped ground ahead
of us has always been of great in-
terst, and while the present winter's
work has been very successful, there
is still a very large block of ground
to be developed.
"In the first report on the property extending the present tunnel
along the vein ahead was advised,
with the strong possibilitie of finding ore. It was also mentioned that
a cross-cut from this tunnel would
be made to the west vein, working
Hie same through the present tunnel.
This advice was given from Information gained ley a first visit to the
property, without having access to
the shaft em the east vein, which
was full of water. This shaft, which
is 50 feet in depth, was supposed to
be following down the footwall of
the same vein that the tunnel had
followed for the 300 feet, and if continued down to the tunnel level
wolud intercept it at about 40 feet
from its face, or 260 feet from the
mouth, thus establishing the fact
that the ore body in the shaft and in
the tunnel were the same.
"As soon as possible in the summer the shaft was unwatered and a
rough survey made proved that the
course of the shaft was very different from what had been expected,
and that it was possible to represent
another ore body quite Independent
of the large vein then being followed. If this theory was corect,
this ore body would He to the west
of our tunnel and between that and
the west vein.
"With this information there was
a strong inclination to crosscut west
from the end of the 300-foot tunnel
with a view of cutting Ihis shaft ore
body and continuing on to the west
vein which up to that time had contained the highest grade ore.
"Bearings taken on the first visit
to the property showed the east and
west veins were rapidly coming together, but the first few feet of
work, extending the 300-foot tunnel
showed a change, the footwall bearing more to the east. While inclined
to crosscut at the 300 feet, still it
was apparent that if the vein were
to continue its old course at 50 feet
ahead the distance between the two
veins would be materially shortened,
and for the purpose of working the
west vein there would be no real difference, so it was decided to follow
the vein ahead for another 50 feet
and so determine its course, as well
as prospect it, before attempting the
"The result of this work, outside
of developing the bi gore body described above, has been of interest
in proving the course of the vein,
for while the first few feet bore to
the east the wall from that on to
the 50 feet swung to the west sufi-
ciently to get back to its natural
position, and if the vein should continue on its last course there will
be little use for crosscutting, but
simply to follow this vein to the
junction, which in this case will
not be very far.
"It is not likely that this last
course will be maintained very far,
it being mort apt to get back to its
old course and in that event it will
extend some distance to the junction. Assuming then that the surmise is right, regarding the shaft
ore body, and that it lies to the west
of the tunnel, it will not parallel this
tunnel but will conform more to the
course of the west vein and would
form a junction with the east vein,
which we are following at some
point between the two.
"Since it is 200 feet from the bottom of the shaft to the tunnel level
the dip of that ore body may easily
change to such an extent as to connect and prove to be the same as
that in the tunnel or that the junction would form much earlier than
the slope in the shaft would indicate.
These points can only be proven by
development, which will be done In
due time.
"To give some idea of the probable value of the new ore body we
will estimate the amount of gold in
a block of ore ten feet wide, running
0 feet along Ihe tunnel and 100 feet
above and 100 feet below the present level, assuming lhat the ore
would continue that far. This would
yield .roughly, 10,000 tons of ore,
at $40 per ton would be $400,000.
"While the vein was good and
strong at the end of the work and
contained good values, still it could
hardly be expected that such u high
grade ore body should extend a great
distance. It is more likely that
large bodies of lower grade will be
developed, which with the rich
chutes proven in both veins will
make a good working average for
the whole property."

Royal Canadian Group to Ue Developed—Mining Deals in
the Siocan
The announcement of two important mining deals, one concerning the
Royal Canadian on the Granite road
and the other involving the well-
known McAllister group near Three
Forks was made in Nelson.
The Royal Canadian group of six
claims, wbich was purchased by J. L.
Stocks some years ago from the
Duncan Mines Company, and sold
early this year to J. Gordon Savage,
of Calgary, and was later optioned to
H. Manse! Cook, has been purchased
at a large advance upon the price
paid by the Calgary capitalist, by a
Victoria syndicate. The mine is located near the Granite-Poorman and
is equipped with complete buildings.
The group consists of five claims.
On the Royal Canadian claim there
is a ledge which has been opened up
with four drifts while on the Colorado vein there is one drift. The
total tunneling is about 1,000 feet.
There are said to be 2,500 tons of
ore on the dump.
"The indications are very favorable on this group," said Mr. Cook,
"and some good ledges are being
opened up. The tunnelling on the
property amounts to between 6,000
and 8,000 feet and there are good
values in copper, gold and silver.
The group consists of the Pingree,
Mayflower, H. G. N., Snowdrift,
Snowdrift fraction and the Summit
The ..icAllister group, which is located near Three Forks, has been
disposed of by W. M. Bennett, of
Sandon, to a Spokane syndicate, who
are incorporating a company to operate the property. The McAllister
consists of four claims and was one
of the best known mines in the boom
days in the Siocan. A considerable
quantity of silver-lead ore was
shipped during the early days and it
has been under steady development,
for some months.
In Nelson the other night were
two well-known Sandon mining men,
T. McClurg, who has just returned
from Spokane, where he has been in
connection with a large mining deal,
and Ij. B. Barker, who has a lease
and bond on the Wonderful mine
near Sandon. Mr. Barker has been
developing the property through the
winter. The bonders of the Wonderful is a company which shipped altogether with a number of lessees who
have had the property at various
times, between $75,000 and $100,-
000 worth of silver-lead ore from
the mine.
Development on the enterprise
mine on Siocan Lake, which is under
lease to S. S. Fowler, Is progressing
rapidly with good results. Over 400
feet of tunnel have been driven on
the property since Mr. Fowler took
the lease last fall.
