Prince George Proved Herself Very Satisfactory on First
G. T. P. Steamer Closely Resembles
Her Sister Ship Named After
Tliis Port
The Prince George the newest G.
T. P. liner on the coast, reached port
on Sunday with a good passenger
list. Her Initial trip was a delightful
one according to all the passengers,
who speak in the highest terms of
the route and have nothing but praise
for the steamer itself.
Capt. Nicholson, the superintendent of the coast service of the company, was a passenger on the trip
and was accompanied by Mrs.
Nicholson, who has just arrived from
the east and is making her home in
Vancouver. W. P. Hinton, the general
passenger agent of the company, accompanied by Mrs. Hinton, also made
the trip. Mr. Hinton is a frequent
visitor to the coast where he is engaged constantly in looking into conditions with the object in view of
developing trade and inducing settlement in the territory io be served by
. the G. T. P. The company, unlike
some other transportaion companies,
has no land to sell along the route
of its line, but takes its part in advertising the country as a whole for
the sake of the indirect advantage
that it will be to them in the way of
increased trade.
Some of the officers of the new
steamer express the opinion that she
will be a little faster than the Prince
Rupert, although for all practical
purposes the two steamers are duplicates.
One of the most interested travellers on the Prince George was R. L.
Newman, the designer of the steamers. He naturally takes a fatherly interest in the new steamers and is undoubtedly very proud of the way In
which they are behaving In actual
service. No man was in a better position to design vessels for the trade
than Mr. Newman, who in addition
to a long service in the designing of
all kinds of ships both in England
and in the United States, was acquainted at first hand with the needs
of the coast from a residence of
several years here. He stands at the
top of his profession, and the sister
ships of the G. T. P. service are undoubtedly the last word in the coasting trade.
A lour about the vessel reveals the
fact that in the scheme of decorations and furnishings a lady's hand
was not absent. This is explained
from the fact that Mrs. Newman took
supervision of the choice oi the
hangings and other accessories for
which her admirable taste is everywhere in evidence.
The absence of vibration in the
new steamers has been the subject
of much favorable mention by all
who have travelled on them. This
Mr. Newman explained to The Journal representative, is accounted for
by special pains taken by him in the
construction. The steamers are specially heavily stanchioned throughout. This feature was the subject
of remark uy Lloyds' representative.
It has had its desired effect in
making the vessels very rigid.
The dining saloon of the Prince
George Is finished in blue Instead of
In red as is the Prince Rupert. The
general design of the room Is very
similar with Hie heavy cut glass
similes giving a brilliant effect when
lighted up.
Mr. Newman, who Is going to remain on the coasl for some time, is
staying over in Prince Rupert, until
the Prince Rupert goes soulli.
Capt. Nicholson, the energetic
superintendent, was not an Idle man
on the trip. It was no pleasure outing for hint. He was engaged all the
time he was In port perfecting arrangements for the more expeditious
handling of uie freight so as to avoid
all chance of loss of time.
Speaking of the business, Capt.
Nicholson said there were still some
details connected with the service
that had yet to be worked out, but
they would be attended to at once
and the whole put in first class order.
Captain George Robertson is In
command, while Captain Saunders,
formerly of the Camosun, is pilot.
Chief Officer Dan O'Brien was formerly on the Princess Beatrice, Second
Officer R.   Griffiths comes  from   the
Princess Victoria, and Purser E.
Cridge comes from the Princess Charlotte originally although he has
been with the Prince Rupert since
that vessel went on the run.
Chief Stewart Newey, formerly of
the Cunard liner Campania, is in
charge of the interior arrangements.
Victoria Syndicate is Still Negotiating
. . . For Delgrove's Claim
C. N. Tubman, representing a Victoria syndicate, and C. Delgrove, the
locator of the Bitter Creek claims,
after a short visit to Stewart, arched last night by the Prince George
on  their way  to  Victoria.
They have made a further examination and taken additional samples,
and will lay the whole matter before
the Victoria syndicate.
If the property is taken a company
will he formed to develop the claims
on a large scale.

City Council to Affiliate With Other
The city council endorsed at its
meeting last evening the proposal to
join the Union of British Columbia
Municipalities. This organization
represents the different municipalities in the province, the object being
to discuss at a convention held yearly the amendments required to the
municipal clauses anil municipal
elections acts. The organization being composed of the men who arc actually engaged in the active work of
conducting the affairs of ihe councils
throughout the province Is admirably
adapted to give good advice to the
legislature in the matter nnd has
become recognize as being an au-
thorltlve body on that point.
A letter was read last evening from
to join and pay the annual fee of
Aid. Naden urged that the Union
of British Columbia Municipalities
had come to be looked upon as a
very valuable body. It had, In fact,
become the practice that the municipal committee of the legislature
would hardly consider a proposed
amendment to the municipal, act until It had been passed upon by this
body. He thought it would be wise
for the council to join.
Mayor Stork thought it might he
wise to lay the matter over until next
Aid. Lynch moved that the city
council join the Union and pay the
annual fee of $2 5.
This motion carried.
G. T.P. is Preparing for Handling Immense Trade—Land Secured for Grand Hotel to be Built in Victoria in Conjunction With Similar Building to be Put Up in this City-
Company Preparing for Gigantic Trade When Line is
Thrown Open for Traffic.
As the plans of the G. T. P. are
being more fully evolved there can
not fail to be general satisfaction
with the vast scope which the enterprise is to take in. The latest feature of the great undertaking is in
connection with the hotel system and
the facilities for handling passenger
In this scheme the city of Prince
Rupert will be put in a most enviable
position, being right on the line of
the tourist trade which is to be developed by the company on this coast,
in connection with this work a grand
hotel is to be erected in this city
to accommodate the immense business which is to be developed. In
conjunction with it there will be
hotels in other coast cities and with
the ideal equipment in the way of
steamers to cope with the carrying
trade there should be a tremendous
number attracted to the city. It is
presumed that the exact location of
the hotel here will be delayed a little
until all the other arrangements
have been made, so that the most desirable site may be selected.
Victoria is to be the location of a
fine hotel in the system that is to be
established. A site for it has already
been secured at a high price. It will
be directly across the street from the
C. P. R. hotel, and will be exactly
opposite the parliament buildings as
The hotel will be on Government
street and will occupy the wnote
frontage on that thoroughfare, extending from Belleville St. to Elliot.
The position is an ideal one for the
purposes intended.. The ground is a
little higher than that occupied by
the C. P. R. hotel and lends itself
readily to being laid out in excellent
The company had other places to
select from, but finally decided upon
this site. The structure to be erected on this site will be in keeping, it
is announced, with the general architectural scheme of the place, and will
be a credit to the company. The
cost of the land alone for the building was $281,000.
With a model hotel erected at Victoria, the recognized summer resort
of the Pacitic coast, the G. T. P. will
be in a position to handle an immense
trade in this line when the railway
is completed. Tourists coming west
by other routes will be accomodated
by the company at the new hotel and
then taken by the company's own
steamers north along the scenic
route to Prince Rupert and after a
stay nt ih,- modern hotel that will be
pin up here, will be carried cast over
the route of the tl. T. P., the scenery
of which is not to he excelled anywhere on the continent.
On the other hand, by this chain
of hotels thai is to be erected, provision will also be supplied for the
passenger trade that will take the
other route coming by the G. T. P.,
and after a stay here during which
time side trips can be made to various points-of interest close at hand,
will proceed south by way of the
steamers which the company operates
on the run to the south. They can
then be accomodated at the company's hotel in Victoria and make
their way east by one of the other
lines of travel or take the G. T. P.
route back again.
These moves on the part of the
G.T.P. cfearly show that the management is alive to the demands of the
times. It is going to keep pace with
the best of the transportaion companies on the continent. In that line
the accommodation in the matter of
hotels has coJne to be looked upon
as a matter of first importance. With
a line of high class hotels across
the continent, such as the G. T. P.
evidently intend to maintain, with
the besf'of equipment in the carrying trade, including steamers as well
os rolling stock on the railway, with
a line opening up a new world to the
traveller, the traffic from the tourist
standpoint alone will be exceedingly
In that trade Prince Rupert must
ha\* a most important part. At some
stage of the tour practically every
traveller by the route will be in this
city and make a stay here. The
company's plans, it is said, call for an
hotel here second to none in the
whole system.
With this as a base there will he
scenic trips to Alaska and other near
by points arranged, and the city
should all summer long be thronged with tourists in addition to the
commercial business that is done.
Trial Consignment  of   Frozen Product
Has Proved Successful.
Profits  From  This  Form  of  Curing
Nets Fifty Per Cent on the
London  Market
(Special to The Journal)
London, July 26.—Trial shipments
from British Columbia of frozen salmon to England have turned out a
decided success. The profits on tills
line are placed at fifty per cent. The
salmon reached England In excellenl
condition, proving that the trade dan
lie developed. The market is a large
one nnd with such large profltB
should be fully exploited.
The development of this trde will
have a marked Interest for this port,
which Is destined to become the
Gloucester of the Pacific coasl. The
trade in salmon and other varieties
of fish will become one of the big
features of this city's business.

Government    Cancels    Old
Realizing the need of rendering
what assistance it can to enable railway contractors to secure a supply of
labor, the Ottawa Government has
modified the immigiation regulations
that were so bitterly complained of.
The immigration department Ins
furnished the following memorandum
to the press: —
"Owing to the great scarcity of
railway laborers, it has been decided
to admit from all countries except
Asia, railway construction laborers
who are mentally, physically and
morally fit and willing to work and
who are guaranteed employment by
railway contractors or railway com
panics, irrespective of money quail-
fications or direct journey.
This means that for the time being
railway construction men are placed
in practically the same position insofar as immigration regulations are
concerned as farm laborers have been
in the past. It also means that contractors In the prairie provinces and
on the Pacific coast will be able to
secure large numbers of Scandinavians and other first class construction
men who, under a strict interpretation of immigration regulations,
might be debarred either for lack of
the'required $25, or for not coming
from the country of their birth or
naturalization. This alteration in
the regulations is of especial importance to railway contractors, in view
of the fact that operations have been
considerably curtailed across the border, and first-class men are, therefore
easily available.'
A post office has been opened at.
Meanskinislil, forty miles below
Hazelton, under the name of Cedar-
vale, and Mrs. J. W. Graham has
been   appointed   postmistress.

City Keeps Cheques
Vancouver. — Adhering to theii
policy of retaining the deposii
cheques when successful tenderers
withdraw from contracts, the city authorities have refused to give Mr.
.I,lines C. Kennedy hack his $1,60»
cheque for a tender on a sower on
Tenth avenue, or Mr. W. I. Paterson
some $750 which he had as a deposit on a bid for n sewer along Victoria drive.
Mr. Kennedy's figure of $32,000
was far and away lower than the
others, the nearest of which stood at
$53,232. Mr. Kennedy wrote to the
board of works stating that, a clerical error had been made in his tender reducing it some $11,000. He
added that as he did not think the
city would care to accept his bid under the new figure he would like his
deposit cheque returned, as he did
not care to go on with the work for
$32,000. The board decided to retain the cheque.
The Paterson tender was made in
October, 1909. It was much the lowest and was accepted, the figure being in the neighborhood of $16,000.
Later the firm, Paterson & Grant,
withdrew, but the city would not
give the deposit of $750 back. Another application was made last night
Mr. Paterson asking for leniency on
the ground that it had been granted
to others. The chairman of the
board of works stated in council that
all cheques had been kept by the
city in such cases, and the council
therefore decided to file the letter.
The city clerk will call for new tenders for the sewer on Tenth avnue.
Repored   Sale  of Nanaimo  Properties
to English Capitalists.
Western Fuel Company of San Fran.
Cisco Believed to  Have
Sold Out
The properties of the Western Fuei
company of San Francisco, embracing
35,000 acres of coal-bearing lands
near Nanaimo, have, according to
generally credited reports, passed into the hands of a British syndicate,
the deal having been put through by
Mr. ohn L. Howard, the president of
the company, during a recent visit
to London. The purchase price of
the properties is put at  $3,500,000.
The Western Fuel company was incorporated on December 12, 1902,
With a capitalization of $1,500,000
and has, during the intervening years
carried on an extensive business in
California, acquiring the reputation
of controlling the market in that
state. It is said that the price paid
by them to the New Vancouver Coal
Company for the properties involved
in the present deal was approximately $650,000, thus showing a magnificent profit apart from what was
made by operation.
It is stated that the shipping facilities of the plant will be enlarged
by the new company with a view of
extending their business along the
Pacific coast, and it is further stated
that they have entered into large contracts for Australian coal.
It is expected that the British company will take hold of the business
in the course of a few weeks. Although the details of their organization have not yet been worked out,
it is believed that Mr. James B.
Smith, of San Francisco, the present
manager of the properties, will be retained In that position.

augmenting its fire patrol In tha
Crows Nest Pass District, where the
present fire danger and loss is thl
greatest in all the province, and is
doing all possible in co-operation
with the provincial fire wardens and
private interests directly affected, to
keep in check the dangerous and
still spreading fires.
The government has communicated
with all the railway companies operating throughout the province, with
the millmen, owners of timber hold
Ings and others, requesting their assistance to the fullest possible degree
in  combating the flames.
The present period is one of exceptional risk in consequence of the
unusual prolongation of dry weather,
and the situation is an exceedingly
difficult one to deal with, despite the
fact that the protective force is this
season both larger and better organized than ever before.
The suggestion that a water car
should be operated on the Kootenay

Phoenix.—John O. Griffiths, of
Phoenix, has left for his home in
Wales accompanied by Thomas Williams. It is just two months ago
since Griffiths was acidentally shot
in the head with a 22-calibre rifle
bullet. At the time practically no
hope was entertained for his recovery, and a specialist brought in from
Spokane gave little encouragement.
Aside from the fact that the bullet
still lodges in his head and may give
him trouble in time, Griffiths was in
perfect health when he left on his

to have recently had a delusion that
he was accused of various crimes and
was being pursued by constables. Tie

is largely owned by certain officials
of the United States Steel company,
together with Pittsburg and Duluth
interests. The company owns the
Nickel Plate group at Hedley, with
reduction works af 40 stamps and
equivalent cyaniding plant, and also
owns the Copper Flat mine, near
Silver City, New Mexico, now being
explored. This is the company with
which M. K. Rodgers, now interested at Observatory Inlet, is connected. There have been three dividends
declared by the company, since the
incorporation of the company last
August, as follows: $35,520 on January 4, 1910; $36,000 on April 1st,
1910, and $36,000 on July 1, 1910.

Vancouver Capitalists Rond Promising Properties in Interior
The report that the C. P. R. are
negotiating for the purchase of the
coal mines of the Pacific Coast coal
mines at South Wellington, Vancouver Island, and at Suquash, near the
northern end of that Island, seems
to be a myth. C. C. Michener, one
of the directors of the company, was
in the city this week, coming north
by the Prince George and returning
again by her. He says that his company, of which John Arbuthnot is tbe
president, is not negotiating with the
C. P. R. to his knowledge, and he
adds also that be would know if
there were dealings on.
The company which Mr. Michener
represents, supplies the G. T .P.
steamers with coal, which is taken on
at Coal Harbor on Vancouver Island.
He is making the trip to this city for
the purpose of seeing it for himself.
He is well satisfied with the general
outlook and feels that Prince Rupert
must become a great port.
Speaking of the work which his
company is doing, he says that they
have a ready sale for the whole of
the output at South Wellington. They
are mining about 800 tons a day and
all of it is being taken to meet the
demands. At Suquash the company
is not making any attempt to ship
any quantity. On the contrary they
are concerned in fully testing the extent of the body that they have there.
Tunnelling is being done for a mile
In the direction of Malcolm Island
under the sea and in a southern direction in the same way. This is to
fully satisfy the directors that the
body of ore is there. Already a full
test of it has been made by borings
but they prefer to have it demonstrated by actual tunnelling as well.
The coal at Suquash is superior to
the product of the mines in the south
of the Island. It is harder and burns
without smoke. It has been tested
from time to time and this characteristic makes it a model coal for household uses.
Mr. Michener, who has been living
on the Pacific coast for a few years
only, is greatly impressed with the
immense possibilities. He ts Interested with Mr. Arbuthnot, Mr. Savage and Mr. Wisliart of New York In
coal and timber propositions on this

deposit. The balance Is to be paid

Mr. Faulkner left on Friday for

the cuts, at a distance of a mile and

Lord Lansdowne's entire estate at

Improving Facilities for Handling Messages Across Canada From
Pacific   Cable   Company   Will   Have
Splendid    Equlpmeni    Along
Route of C. P. R.
Hudson's  Hay Company  Repeipts in
Northern   Interior  Art'  Light
Beginning this week the Pacific
Cable company will enlarge its facilities for the transmission of cable despatches between the Antipodes and
the Mother Country by the installation, and equipment of three thou-
sai d miles of land line between Van-
ci uver and Montreal.
This stretch of wire has been leased from the C.P.R. company uy I tin
cable officials, and this week the most
modern machinery and equipment
evailable will be in Vane mve.',
where one of the stations will be
situated. Mr. Carr, of the Lcudon
staff, and two assistants, will arrive
about the same time, and the Pacific Cable company, will commence
handling its own despatches across
The present arrangements have
been complted by Mr. A. S. Baxen-
dale, chairman of the London board,
and Mr. Jos. Milward, manager ol
the Australasian end of the company's affairs, both of whom will be
in Vancouver. Mr. Milward came
in from Australia a few weeks ago
and went to Montreal, where he met
the chairman. The latter will make
only a flying visit to this coast, returning east tomorrow, his presence
being urgently required in London.
Mr. Milward, who is charged with
the work of completing the arrangements, will remain on the coast, alternating between Vancouver and
Banfield station on the west coast,
until the middle of September, when
he will return to Sydney.
The move now being made is a
great Btep forward in the history of
the cable company, and it is the
opinion of Mr. Milward that through
it the efficiency of the whole service
will be greatly increased.
The improvements are of a double
character. The first has reference to
the safety of the code. Hitherto although the continental code was employed on the cable itself, when It
was picked up by the C.P.R. for
transmission across the continent the
American code was employed. The
characters of this code are regarded
by cable men as not sufficiently distinct to safely employ in handling
important cabh? matter. The more
precise continental characters leave
less room for errors or confusion,
and these will henceforth be employee throughout.
The other improvement relites to
speed. The Wheatstone machines for
rapid transmission will be installed
at the four relay stations—White
River, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver. At each of these stations two
or three experts who have been
brought from the London office, will
watch the automatic relaying of all
messages, their intervention being
necessary only on emergency. The
equipment in the Vancouver office
will he capable of handling 300 words
a minute, although in actual operation Messrs. Baxendale and Milward
do not anticipate that they will transmit more than thirty-five words per
minute. Even this, however, is an
increase of fifty per cent on ormer
averages, and it may be speeded up
to even a much higher figure.
About a score of trained men have
been brought out by Mr. Baxendale,
and they will have complete charge
of the new wire, which Is leased from
the C. P. R., which also is charged
with the maintenance of It. At Montreal messages are turned over to
either the Commercial or the Anglo
Cable companies, with coast stations
at Conso and at Sydney, for carriage
across the Atlantic.
Doth gentlemen report tho business of their company as growing
steadily and gralifyingly.
Receipts of furs from interior posts
oi' the Hudson's Bay Company are
very light this year, there being
practically no lynx at all, says the
Omlneca Herald. This is attributed
to the scarcity of rabbits which were
killed off by a plague four years ago
and are only commencing to show an
increase  in  numbers.

Director of Company in Prince Rupert Says He Knows Nothing
About the Deal
An English company, of which Sir
Ernest Shackelton, the explorer, Is
at the head, have bad the falls of the
Bulkley river at Moricetown staked
with the intention of putting In a
huge power plant, says the Omlneca
Herald At present the project is in
a formative stage, but an engineer
will come to report on tbe proposition within a month. If bis report
Is favorable active work will he commenced ns soon ns their legal rights
are fully protected.
The development of the Moricetown falls will not only mean the expenditure of the greater part of r.
million dollars in Inbor and plant,
but wil make cheap electric power
available for mines, smelters and industrial purposes. The falls are
twenty-eight miles from Hazelton.
The extension of the Dominion
Government telegraph line to oPrt-
land Canal seems now assured, and
the route to be followed will be by
way of Kitsumkalum Valley, the
Naas Valley and Observatory Inlet.
This is the way advocated by the residents of Prince Rupert and- which
will give this city better connections
with the different points mentioned.
J. T. Phelan, the superintendent
on his return to Vancouver from a
tour of inspection, outlined the
course he would recommend. It will
follow the oPrtland. Canal to Observatory Inlet and the various mining
properties and canneries along it to
Maple Bay and will then strike
across country to Kitsumkalum. In
this way the line will serve a much
greater territory and a territory in
which great developments are expected In the not very distant future.
Mr. Phelan is now making his report to the Dominion authorities, and
will commence the construction of
the line as soon as the necessary preliminaries have been put through.
Al throulgh the Hazelton and Fort
George district necessary extensions
are being made in order to keep pace
with the advance of settlement in
that district. At Fort George the line
is being connected up with the local
telephone service, thus giving communication with the outside. This
local service will he complete in
about two weeks.
All through the province there
has been a large increase in the
amount of business done by the service. Throughout the upper Fraser
the business has been doubled. At
Prince Rupert and Hazelton the returns are also very good.
About a dozen additional stations
have been added in various parts and
others are contemplated with a view
to keeping pace with the many additional settlements which are continually springing into existence. The
staff has been materially increased,
both at the operating end and among
the field construction and repair parties. At the present time four construction parties are in the field, most
of them being engaged In reconstruction and repair work.
In reply to n question relative to
rate Mr. I'll::' did not hold out
much hope of reductions In this direction at present, pointing out that
under the revised code of last November the present rates were very
reasonable for a pioneer line, particularly when it is constructed and
maintained under such disadvantageous conditions, practically all of the
work having to be done on foot, with
mountains to scale, forests to hew
through, and rivers and ravines to
Considerable trouble has been
caused in some districts by obstructions incidental to the advance of
settlement. Clearing of right of way,
blasting, etc., has done damage to
ilie line. Forest fires are also an
ever present source of trouble during the dry season, although very Utile damage has been done from Hi is
cause during the present  year.
The superintendent is apprehensive
of no danger of competition from
wireless   telegraphy,    declaring   that

Telegraphic dispatches today announce not only that frozen salmon
may be shipped from this coast to
England and laid down in good condition, but 111it.t it is a remunerative
way cif handling It. Large profits are
to be made out of this way of handling the fish.
Prince Rupert, with its vast fishing resources, is deeply Concerned in
this. It means that by the time the
G. T. P. is completed to the coast
there win lie a demand for this way
of handling tbe fish. With returns
such as are Indicated there will be no
lack of capital to engage in the venture.
Il has been estimated by one who
has made a study of the fishing resources of these northern waters that
shortly after the railway is through
there should be at. least one heavy
trainload of fish leave this city each
day to supply tbe demand that will
be created. Willi such a condition
of affairs the fishing industry must
give employment to a vast population
Every day serves to unfold new
prospects for the city of Prince Rupert. The port is destined to prosper
not from any one industry but from
the diversified natural resources that
surround the place together with its
opportunities for trade it is to develop along many lines. Not fhe
least important feature of its development will be along the line ot
the tourist trade. It will be a great
centre from which the travellers will
seek out new fields for exploration
in the way of scenery and pleasure.
A new empire with its changing
scenery of mountain and plain will
be opened up by the G. T. P. This
will attract thousands to make the
trip to the coast and study the new
Finances, it is Announced, Have Been
Secured  for  New  Railway
Eight hundred miles of railway
traversing the valley between the
east and west mountain ranges in
British Columbia and extending from
Vancouver to the Northern British
Columbia lines is the undertaking
planned by the British Columbia &
Alaska Railway company, according
to a statement made by Jean Wol-
kenstein,  president  of the  company.
"I have just returned from London," said Mr. Wolkenstein, "and
have made arrangements with one of
the most conservative banking institutions there to underwrite our
bonds. Already we have two parties
of surveyors in the field, and will
surely commense actual construction
work next spring."
The line as projected will extend
from Vancouver via Lytton and Fort
George and thence north. The com
pany is contemplating a line Into
Skagway by way of Telegraph Creek,
and Is now securing the right of way.
Mr. Wolkenstein is conferring with
Premier McBride regarding certain
concessions expected from British
Columbia. He estimates that the road
will cost $25,000 a mile and asserts
thai the financing of it Is completed
Associated with him is Harold G,

The Bruno on her trip from the
Queen Charlotte Islands on Sunday,
brought a considerable quantity ot
ties for the G. T. P. line.
The strike of the men employed
on the wharf in unloading rails from
the Belle of Scotland, has been settled. They will be paid fifty cents
an hour as demanded. Work was,
therefore, resumed yesterday.
A new schedule made for the G. T.
P. steamers provides for the arrival
of the Prince Rupert and the Prince
George from the south at 11.30 on
Wednesdays and Sundays. The vessels leave Vancouver at the same
time as formerly, but have reduced
the sailing schedule by two hours.
The big ketch rigged auxiliary
yacht Anemone, well known in Vancouver as the pleasure craft of Chas.
W. Tutt, the Denver millionaire, has
been sold to W. H. Taylor, who recently reached tbe coast from Nova
Scotia. He will take up his residence in Victoria, and the Anemone
will be registered with that club. The
Anemone, which was sold for $25,000
will make her first cruise with her
new owner shortly, going to Northern
British Columbia, including Prince
Rupert and Alaska. The yacht arrived at Victoria on April 10 from
San Diego.
H.M.S. Shearwater, Capt. Vivian,
the sloop of war that represents the
British navy in these waters, is at

into the various inlets. She will sail
on Thursday for Port Simpson, and
will call here on her way south a few
days later.
This fall the majority of the crew
will leave for England, their time
having expired, and a new draft will
come out. The Shearwater will leave
a little later for her southern cruise
to  South  American  ports.

Alex. Rowan, one of the best
known long distance runners in British Columbia, who has figured in a
number of races in Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and other coast cities,
met with a serious accident in No. 4
mine. His right foot was so badly
mangled that amputation was necessary. He was riding one one of the
cars and caught hold of a brake,
which gave way, with the result that
he was thrown to the track and the
car passed over one foot, mangling
it terribly. He is now in the Cumberland hospital.
For the first time in the history
of Rugby football in Canada, a representative team from another province
will play In Brit.ifh CI lumbia this
coming fall If plans mature.
A letter containing a proposal from
the Manitoba Rugby Union to send a
representative team out to the coast
was received by the Vancouver Association and very favorably commented upon, and it is altogether likely
that the prairie men, the majority af
whom will be Winnipeggers, selected
from the city clubs, will be seen in
the fall trying their strength against
Vancouver at Brockton Point, and
Victoria and Nanaimo on the Island,
and the full strength of rBltlsh Columbia at the Point grounds on their
Instead of sending a purely Vancouver Rugby team south to play the
annual exhibition series this fall, It
is probable that an all-British Columbia team will be deputed to make the
trip. At a meeting of the executive
of the Vancouver Rugby Union, communications relative to the annual
tour of California by the Vancouver team were taken up and it is
probable that a team will be sent
down to the Golden State, provided
us playing strength warrants it.
Messrs. Keith, Woodward, Tait and
.lenkinson, favored the assembling
of a thoroughly strong British Columbia team. The team will have
to leave about October 20.
Mr. W. F. Edwards' resignation
•is the union representative to the
British   Columbia   Amateur' Associa
tion has been received with regret,
and Mr. R. P. Woodward was appointed for the balance of the term.
The visit of the combined Oxford-
Cambridge team to the coast was
thoroughly discussed and it was felt
that some announcement of a definite
nature should be made very shortly.
In commenting on a new brand of
lawn tennis, A. Wall'is Myers, a well-
known English tennis authority,
"Where is the long low drive?
Has the art of hard hitting from
base to base been lost in the general
adoration of the Ameriov and
colonial volleyers? Are Lavful, the
Chaytors, Chipp and S. H. Smith to
nave no successors? These questions arise as one watches the modern singles in England at any rate
The conviction is forced upon the
observer that the players of today
hit with less vigor than the players
of fifteen years ago. In ground
strokes they are unquestionably
weaker, less enterprising, more difficult. The causes are probably twofold. The Dohertys not only left the
indelible mark on the annals of lawn
tennis—they also established a cult.
"It was a cult association with
graceful style and imperturbable action, with place, rather than pace,
witli judicious variety of stroke
rather than sheer speed. Pursued by
its masters, who had natural genius
this artistic method held is own for
nearly a decade. In that period the
Doherty methods as well as I be;
Doherty manner were widely cultivated; the influence exerted by tho
brothers was so deep and catholic.
But they had advantages which
others could not share—Inherent aptitude and facilities to develop their
game under the best conditions and
in the best company. Their army of
imitators was less favored by nature
and circumstances. The pupil had
failed to reach the same standard of
excellence as the master.
"There are one or two exceptions
to this rule. Otto Fritzheim and
Rahe come to mind, but both of these
young players are Germans, and
though ther game is undoubtedly
founded on that of H. L. Doherty,
they are products of hard courts and
have benefitted by constant practice
against the hard hitting school of the
fatherland. In England you have

American and colonial volleyers is
now visible. The latter's influence
expressed in the play of Norman
Brookes, Beal Wright and other close
quartered exponents has exerted itself there in a curious yet obvious
endeavor to blend the two games.
The force of example In games,
especially In lawn tennis, has always
been powerful, but the effort to construct a Brookes on a Doherty foundation was doomed to failure; and it
is to be hoped the process will speedily be abandoned."
