The Prime Minister of Canada is Greeted by the Entire
Population of the City Upon His First Visit to
Prince Rupert—Ideal Weather Conditions
Sir Wilfrid Lauri.'r and his party
have come to Prince Rupert and gone
again. The reception accorded the
Prime Minister in this city was of
the heartiest character and the venerable chief of the Liberal party and
the first citizen of the Dominion
showed on every occasion during the
visit here that he was delighted with
the way In which he was greeted.
Arriving by the G.T.P. steamer
Prince George; which with its sister
ship, the Prince Rupert, are recognized as the best appointed vessels on
the Pacific Coast, the Premier and
his party made their home on board
the palatial steamer during their stay
In port.
Accompanying Sir Wilfrid on the
trip were Hon. George P. Graham,
minister of railways, Hon. W. Tem-
pleman, minister of inland revenue,
F. F, Pardee, Liberal whip in the
House of Commons, Senator Gibson,
E. M. Macdonald, M.P. for Pictou,
N.S., Senator Roy and Senator Bos-
tock, besides a large party of Victoria
and Vancouver Liberals and n large
party of newspapermen.
The arrangements as they were
made by the citizens' committee,
were carried out In perfect order. The
day of arrival was charming, similar in all respects to the weather
which has prevailed here for the
most part since the early spring.
The D. G. S. Kestrel, Capt. New-
combe, was placed at the disposal of
the reception committee. The fishery
cruised Falcon, Capt. Copp, carried
others of the general committee,
while the G.T.P. placed at the disposal of the committee the steamer
Bruno, Capt. Weymouth, which carried an Immense throng out of the
harbor to meet the Prince George.
In addition to these larger steamers
practically every launch In the harbor gaily decorated and loaded with
citizens, made their way to the harbor mouth to assist in making the reception a fitting one.
Moved Out on Time
The Kestrel followed by the Bruno
and the Falcon, all gaily dressed for
the occasion, pulled away from the
G.T.P. wharf close on the appointed
time, 12.30, and steamed out of the
harbor. A wireless message received
by the Bruno announced that fog
had delayed the vessel with the party
on board and instead of getting in
at 2 p.m., It would be 3 o'clock before
she would reach the entrance. This
information was conveyed to the j
other vessels and the flotilla employed the time steaming about
easily, all eyes straining in the direction in which the Prince George
would appear. Close on the appointed time a dense smoke above the
Intervening Islands off the mouth of
the harbor indicated that the guest
was nearing the terminal city. All
crowded the decks of the receiving
steamers, auxlous to catch a glimpse
of Sir Wilfrid.
The Kestrel, by appointment, took
up her position on the course of entrance to the harbor and while the
Prince George stonmed by close
alongside the crew was drawn up In
saluting order. The vessels saluted
by whistles and all the while could
be seen on the bridge of the Prince
George the spare figure of Sir Wilfrid, surrounded by his lieutenants
in parliament. The local member,
Hon. William Templenian, could he
picked out close beside his chief, his
hand pointing in the direction of the
harbor from time to time apparently
explaining the local situation.
Greeted Sir Wilfrid
As the Prince George came alongside cheers for Sir Wilfrid were raised from the Kestrel and the raising
of his cap plainly showed that he
had caught the sound across the
waters. The band on board the Kestrel struck up "The Maple Leaf Forever," and with the exchange of directions between the captains, the
Kestrel took up its position Immediately In front with the Prince George
following and the other vessels lining up In the rear. As the harbor
was being entered, the flotilla of
small craft appeared and circled
about the Prince George,  the occu
pants of the launches cheering the
Premier as they passed.
As the.vessels steamed up the
wide harbor the fact that Prince Rupert was a terminal point was
brought realistically to the minds, of
those on board the Prince George
through the forethought of Superintendent Mehan and the other officials of the G. T. P., who had a train
of cars made up which steamed out
along the route of the railway in full
view of the party. As the Prince
George came abreast of the train the
engine belched forth its welcome,
giving a promise that it would not be
long until the trip to Prince Rupert
might be an all rail one.
Then, too, the construction departs
ment of the railway was not behind
in calling attention to the fact that
it was having Its part in the opening
of this city and the country. Heavy
blasts throwing up their rocks and
clouds of dirt were given as a salutation to the party.
Visitors Surprised
The Prince George answered with
her whistles the salutes thus given
to the Prime Minister and his party,
the whole making a scene that must
have appealed to all on board, many
of whom had not expected to see
much more than an engineer's camp
Landing at the wharf, another surprise awaited the visitors. They had
as they passed among the vessels off
the harbor entrance, laden with welcoming passengers, come to the conclusion that the whole of the citizens had turned out on the water to
receive them. As the G. T. P. wharves
were approached and they saw the
streets lined with a solid mass of the
people they were filled with wonder
and remarked upon it.
The reception committee landed
quickly from the Kestrel and as soon
as the gang plank was put out from
the Prince George, Hon. W. Temple-
man stepped ashore and ascertained
what were the exact plans. Without
any loss of time the reception committee was led on board by Mr. Templenian and on the hurricane deck
of the steamer presented to Sir Wilfrid, and a hearty welcome extended
by Mayor Stork.
Landing,.the Premier passed along
the lines of the guard of honor from
the local military company, Earl
Grey's rifles. Incidentally it may be
mentioned that the company looked
exceedingly well and in spite of tbe
fact that they had had only a few
days' drill, their appearance under
the command of Lieutenant Agnew,
who took charge in the absence
of Capt. Stork, who as mayor of the
city, had other important duties to
perform, being smart and soldierly.
Entering a carriage in company
with Hon. Mr. Templenian and Hon.
Mr. Graham and the mayor, and
headed by one of the Indian bands,
the Premier beaded the procession to
Second avenue.
From in front of the Provincial
Buildings, arranged on a platform
for the Prime Minister and his party,
the presentation of the addresses
look place in full view of thousands
of citizens.
Addresses Presented
The unique address of the city,
executed by Morte Craig was stretched on an easel nt the back of the
stage and was admired by all me
visitors Including Sir Wilfrid. Mayor
Stork read the address of the city
Which is found elsewhere.
He then introduced Mrs. Eggert,
the president of the Daughters of
the Empire, who on behalf of the
local chapter of that organization,
presented Sir Wilfrid with a book of
views of Prince Rupert. Mrs. Eggert said It gave her much pleasure
on behalf of the local chapter to
give him greeting to the youngest
city of the Dominion. The book of
views was given, she said, as a small
token of the regard of the organization for him and the service he was
doing Canada and the Empire.
Mayor Stork presented the elegant
portfolio ot views and wild flowers
of the district to Sir Wilfrid from
the city.   This, he explained, was for

of the City of Prince
Sir Wilfrid Rieaks General Rule of
Tour And Attends Function
At the Inn
Prince Rupert had the distinguished honor on Saturday night of entertaining Sir Wilfrid Laurler at a
banquet in the Prince Rupert Inn.
The Prime Minister on this tour has
very carefully avoided nearly all such
.functions, it being found that they
are too exacting upon his strength.
In the case of Prince Rupert, however, he made an exception and consented to meet the citizens around
the banquetting table.
The dining room of the Inn was
crowded on the occasion. At the
head of the table sat Mayor Stork
with Sir Wilfrid and Hon. George F.
Graham, minister of railways, on
either side. Hon. W. Templeman,
Senator Gibson, Ralph Smith, M.P.,
Duncan Ross, F. F. Pardee, M.P., E.
M. Macdonald, M.P., Senator Roy and
Senator Bostock all had places also,
so that the residents of the city had
no lack of distinguished guests.
M. M. Stephens, who has made a
reputation for himself as a toast-
master, filled that trying position and
did It to perfection. There was not
a dull moment allowed throughout
the whole evening.
The arrangements for serving the
meal were well in hand and an early
start was accordingly made on the
toast list.
"The King" was duly honored, after which Mayor Stork proposed the
health of Sir Wilfrid. His Worship
referred to the fact that just one year
before, Earl Grey, Mr. Charles M.
Hays and other distinguished guests
had been entertained there. They
had that night, however, the foremost citizen of Canada as their
guest. It was no formal gathering,
he said. It was a gathering of the
north to do honor to Sir Wilfrid.
They showed an abiding faith in the
north and endorsation of the policy
that resulted in the building of the
National Transcontinental railway.
The Mayor said he never before was
as proud of being a native born Canadian as he was that night. He was
glad to welcome the Premier who had
showed himself as big a man as the
country was wide in miles. He was
sorry Lady Laurier was not present.
He was glad to see Sir Wilfrid carrying his age so well and glad to see
that he was good for ten years or
more yet. (Cries of "make It twenty.")
Sir Wilfrid Responds
Sir Wilfrid in rising to reply to
the toast was greeted with loud
cheers and It was some time before
he could be heard. He said he would
b a very sorry fellow Indeed who
would not be a jolly fellow among
such jolly fellows. He was in good
health and a good fellow. He was
described in the East as too much of
an optimist. He would be more of an
optimist when he went back. He
had caught some of the enthusiasm
of Ihe West. He believed more in
his country than he did seven years
before when he brought forth the
policy of the National Transcontinental railway. He felt then there was
a place for a second railway nndj
now he felt that there was room for
n third. The bonds of Canada had
been loo limited for years.
A Country by Itself
British Columbia would make a
country by itself. In Its rich resources there was enough for millions of population. He believed the
province had a great future in agriculture.
There was need of drawing the different parts of the country closer together. This could only be done by
increasing the means of communication. He thought he was to live a
few years longer. To tell the trutlr,
he was afraid that he was not yet
ripe for heaven. This, at least, was
frequently remarked upon by his opponents. He must live a little longer, therefore, he thought to prepare
for heaven. He would like to see
the railway completed at least before that time came. This at the
longest would be three years. They
would then have an engine from
Moncton to Prince Rupert and from
Government  Party  Taken  Over   First
Section of the G.T.P.
Pleasant Day  Spent  by  Prime Mln
ister And Those Accompanying
Him on Tour
Yesterday forenoon Sir Wilfrid
Laurler and the visitors who accompanied him including the newspaper
representatives, were taken out over
the first tep or twelve miles of the
G. T. P. as the guests of Superintendent Mehan and Superintendent McNicholl. The time at the disposal
of the party prevented their going
any farther. The distance covered
however sufficed to show the ministers that the road being constructed
quite  up   to  the  requirements
Members of the party in fact expressed surprise that such a perfect
road bed had been prepared in the
early stages of construction. Without
any ballasting having yet been done
the railway line is in excellent condition for traffic, great care being
taken to avoid all sharp curves. The
Inverness cannery was visited and
the party saw the employees engaged in the final stages of getting tho
cans labelled and packed away, although nothing was doing in the way
of handling the fish.
At the cannery on the return of
the train from a run farther up tho
line, the majority of the party left
the railway and boarded one of tho
river steamers of the contracting
company, Foley, Welsh & Stewart,
who prepared very dainty refreshments for their guests.
Instead of proceeding directly back
to the wharf a trip was taken as far
as Metlahkatla, where a landing was
made and Sir Wilfrid and party enjoyed a visit in the "Holy City." The
landing was taken advantage of by
the residents to make two presentations  to  the Prime  Minister.
Miss Morrison, of Hazelton, presented him with a Hazelton gold
nugget mounted, which he was ask
ed to give to Lady Laurier as a reminder of the present visit.
Fred Campbell also presented him
with a carved canoe, which will act
as a souvenir of the trip.
So interested were they all in
what they saw that a return was not
made to Prince Rupert until almost
time for the open air meeting to begin.

■ o	
Yesterday the citizens of Prince
Rupert had the opportunity of hearing the Prime Minister of Canada
Sir Wilfrid Laurier on his first visit
to the city. On a day that could not
have been improved upon there was
an immense crowd gathered In front
of the provincial buildings, which
had been very artistically decorated
for the occasion. Mottoes bearing tho
words "The noblest Canadian ot
them all." "Railroads, Population
and Progress," and "A Link in tbe
All-Red Route," were strung about in
conspicuous places, while the front ol
the building was covered with bunting and designs.
Arriving on the scene close upon
the appointed time, 3 o'clock, Sh
Wilfrid and his colleagues were escorted to the platform by Mayor
Stork through throngs of cheering
citizens. Accompanying the Premier were Hon. George P. Graham,
minister of railways and canals, Hon.
Wm. Templeman, F. F. Pardee, the
Liberal whip in the House of Commons, E. M. McDonald, .M.P. for
Pictou, N.S., Senator Gibson, Senator Roy and Senator Bostock.
Just before the proceedings opened
young Miss Venn of the Metlahkatla
Indian reserve, stepped forward and
handed Sir Wilfrid a bouquet of wild
flowers of the district. The Minister
received them in the kindest manner
and stooping down kissed the donor
amid the applause of all.
Mayor Stork presided and quickly
proceeded to  the  programme.
His Worship in opening referred to
the fact that It was a red letter day
for Prince Rupert. The citizens had
their own good member, Hon. Wm.
Templeman, present and the great
leader of the Government, Sir Wilfrid was also there. This with other
features made it a notable occasion.
It was due to the foresight of Sir
Wilfrid that Prince Rupert was now
on the map. Might he long be spared
after the completion of the work.
Prince Rupert was a most fortunate city. They had in Canada the
best government the country ever
had. The city had just elected Its
first council and it could be truly
said It had the best municipal government It had ever enjoyed.
There were only four harbors in
the world that compared with Prince
Rupert. Of these two were in the
Mediterranean. The only other to
compare with Prince Rupert was Tacoma. Whatever might be the de-
demands in the future, he could assure Sir Wilfrid the city would never
be asking for the dredging of the

Ralph Smith, M.P.
Ralph Smith, being Introduced,
complimented the city on the beautiful weather which the speaker said
had followed Sir Wilfrid's footsteps.
He was glad to see the development
in Northern Britisli Columbia because by his vote he had contributed
to that development. He had done
what he could to prevent foolish
statesmen from making it useless.
There was room for the development
of all the cities, larger cities than
existed here today. Prince Rupert
was destined to be the great northern
metropolis of British Columbia.
No modern statesman had ever
lived to see the fulfilment of his
policy as Sir Wilfrid bad. Canada
had made wonderful progress under
the policy of the government of Sir
The Liberal whip in the House of
Commons, F. F. Pardee, M.P. for
West Lambton, made a rather strong
political speech. He referred to the
fact that as they came west until
they had reached the "very top" of
their trip in Prince Rupert they had
bad their eyes opened. They bad developed bigger notions of their country.
British Columbia had perhaps the
greatest heritage and the greatest responsibility in the whole of Canada.
The people here must develop this
great country. They had a government that was willing to co-operate
in all this development. A government that created Prince Rupert.
That government had done more to
develop Canada, East, West, North
and South than any other government.
The people of Prince Rupert had
shown that they had bigness enough
to give Sir Wilfrid a reception as the
greatest Canadian of them all. He
asked them to look Into the record
for fourteen years and they would
find that there had never been a government that had done so much. This
applied to railways. In the matter of
population he said that before the
present government came into power
population was leaving Canada.
Since Sir Wilfrid's government came
into power they hail come lr. b}
thousands. Young Canadians were
developing this western country and
the exodus to the United States had
Touching on the financial question
Mr. Pardee claimed hat since 1897
there had been a surplus instead of
a deficit in the public accounts. The
government was making Canada
what il ought to be, a country peopled by a strong people.
Sir Wilfrid Laurler
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was received
with cheers. He said that if this was
a proud day in the history of Prime
Rupert It was a far prouder day for
the one who addressed them. lie

Encouraged by the finding by
two sailors of bars of sliver washed
ashore, an incorporated company has
chartered several tugs to prosecute
a search for a French treasure ship
sunk in the harbor at Cherbourg,
France, In 1692. The bullion picked up was marked so that its Identification Bs part of the cargo of the

Sir' Wilfrid's Reply'   .:
Sir Wilfrid tn his gracious manner
received all the addresses and presentations,' warmly   shaking    hands
with the Indians -who:read theirs.
In opening his: reply to-them,- he
was greeted with tremendous cheers
from the vast assemblage.    He commenced  his remarks  by addressing
himself to then people in the words:
'Mr Mayor,    and    fellow    citizens,
Daughters  of    the    Empire,   fellow
countrymen of my own raee, fellow
countrymen of the Indian race."  He
expressed  the desire  that he could
convey to them the feelings of his
heart for  the  sentiments  that  had
been expressed In the addresses and
the presentations.    He was prouder
than ever of being a Canadian and
a British subject. Prince Rupert was
the  last  creation   of  an  enterprise
that  had  occupied    much    of    his
thought for seven years. He was glad
that he could claim that his government had  had  something to  do  in
the building up of this city.    It was
the  last  move  in  welding  together
not  only  the  country  but  likewise
the  empire  of  which   they   were  a
Men had come from all parts of
the  country  and  from  other  countries and   gathered    together    here
building a city of which Canadians
could well be proud.
As ,he  had  come  West  and  seen
what the city had  to offer he  had
been  forced  to  the conclusion  that
the construction of )the G. T, P. had
not come one day too soon.
Will Come Again
He then referred to, the fact that
it was hfs .hope to come again to the
city.   "I cannot come very,often," he
said, as they could see he was not a
young man.   If spared, however, for,
three years .more at pnost Jhe railway
would be,completed.,   If God spared
him it was his desireTthat ,be,should

He would die happy If this
permitted.    He-.wpultJ, dle,,bappy In
the belief tbat his, life had not bean
all In, vain.,    . ., .....     ...    -,    .. ,
Addressing himself do Mrs. Eggert
and the Daughters of the Empire, he
satd.-the bend. that,.bound -them- together—was—a,- realization- tbat, -they-
were -.-.ail. loyal subjects of King
George X Briiish, Institutions were

To his French speaking1'countrymen he said he was glad they realized what the blessings, were in the
nation j to which they belonged. To
the countrymen of.. the ahorginal
races he said he was pleased to hear
from them. He wanted them to iii-
derstand that the'government' would
ever protect them. The word of the
Crowli was sacred and- the rights
which they held would ever be maintained. »:oi i.     -    ."
Directing his attention to the ge;f
eral public he thanked them for the
kindly references' tb' his wife. lie
was. sorry she could not, owIiir ft
ill-health, be present. She had been
a good soldier. Wherever he had
gone she was ever nt bis, side She
had made a great mistake like lilm-
Belf, however, of growing old.
With a sudden thought he turned
and addressing himself to the young"
people he saw, Sir Wilfrid said "It Is
a great mistake to grow old."
"It was not my lot to be born of
your blood," he added, "but it was
my good fortune to be born under
British rule."
After addressing a few words in
French to his own countrymen, Sir
Wilfrid closed by again expressing
the wish that he might have been
able to adequately convey his
I thoughts to the people of Prince Rupert for the kindness they had shown
hlmj ....__
After the address a number of citizens were presented to the Prime
Minister, Including a large number
of tjie Indians   ,   i

Senator Roy was also asked to speak
to the toast and referred to the time
when  elevators would  be necessary
The Province
Aid. Naden, In proposing the toast
of the Province of British Columbia,
said the day was the consummation i -
of what he had long desired—that   ■
of seeing the grand old man of the
party.  : it; ii
Before the toast was responded to
the crowd rose and sang "We're here  -
Because We're Here."
W.   Manson,  M.P.P.,' in   replying
said that British Columbia bad not
many years ago been regarded as a
sea of mountains.    Tbe building of   i
the ;C. P: R. had sh6WnJthat these-
mouritalns *ere full of minerals, that   !
the rivers Were full of fish and thee-'
valleyfi were vast agricultural areas. ,;
The visitors had only seen a small
part of'the'province.    Perhaps not
ten per' cent of tiie province bad yet
been developed.   For the building of ;'
the Gv T. P.' Sir Wilfrid muBt be given
due; credit.     Railway   construction   '
meatat much in a country like this.
They must look to the governments
to assist in it.   Whether British Columbia got what It Was felt was Its
due or not, the province was loyal
to the Dominion of Canada.    He respected Sir Wilfrid for his personal
qualities and for what he had done:
Ralph  Smith
Ralph Smith, M.P.,   pointed    out
that  the  prosperity  of  the     whole
country   meant   the    prosperity    of
Prince   Rupert.     The   unity   of   the
whole of Canada must determine the  :
prosperity of it.    There never was a
time when Canada was so united as
at present.   This was due to the connection that existed between the different parts.   It was the duty of British  Columbians to extract the best
tbat could be got out of the country.
Thomas Dunn
In rising to propose the toast of
Prince Rupert, Thomas Dunn was
given a hearty reception. He said
he had been a pioneer of Vancouver
aB well as of Prince Rupert. The
fishing Industry alone In Prince Rupert would support a population of
50,000 people. He hoped to welcome
all that were present again when the
railway wag finished.
Mayor Stork
Mayor Stork in replying for the
city, took occasion to deal with local '
politlos a little.1   He said the council
was doing Its best to make a city of
Prince Rupert.    It was not making
any effort to' perpetuate   itself    In !
powir.     There   had   been   a   lot   of1
'carping" criticism but he was not ap-•
pealing to the rabble.    He wanted to '
build up1*'city that would be a credit
He'Would not be stampeded Into anything that he did not believe was In
the" public Inter^Bt.   'Before closing
-he made a' reference to John Houston,  Who,  he said,'died  as he  had :
tired—an the""Trair"' He Had' been-
a pioneer 'of the pioneers. ■ ■'"'»

The city of Prince Rupert has had
the, opportunity during the past few
days of making Itself known to a
most distinguished partji of nwncwiy)
will do much to advertise the advantages of this port to^iie world'. ' Included In the party and the head of It
was the Prime Minister of Canada,
who on every occasion on which he
was allowed to express himself on
the place, spoke In -no uncertain
way. There Is no doubt left behind
by him that the city and its prospects far exceeded what he had been
led to believe for it. i i
In addition to the Prime Minister
there were other distinguished legislators from all parts of the Dominion
and the representative of this constituency, Hon. Wm. Templeman, had
an opportunity of showing them exactly the needs of the. west.
Not the least important from the
standpoint of the city's progress
*here was a large gathering of newspaper men in the party and they
were greatly Impressed with the out-
took. They will assist in no mean way
in calling the attention of the world
to the possibilities of the city from
a commercial standpoint They made
careful investigations into various
aspects of the city's trade, being
deeply interested especially in the
uutlook from the fishing standpoint.

City is Providing Means for Increasing Amount Available
The dry weather that has been experienced by Prince Rupert, in common with the rest of the coast this
summer, has had its inconveniences
in the matter of the water supply ot
the city. Pending the installation ot
the permanent system the supply is
limited. The public will, therefore,
nave to exercise the greatest care until the weather alters.
The city council has taken the matter up promptly and is having meats
provided for the Increasing of the
.supply to as fuP an extent as possible. Pipes are being laid by the
aity engineer's department from Hays
ereek In the vicinity of the pumps
that were Installed by the G.T.P.
some time ago and these pumps are
to be put In service again In the
hope that the difficulty may be overcome for the present.
There was a quantity of eight inch
pipe on hand and this is being used
is far as It will extend. This provides for 1,500 feet of the line.. The
remainder of the way, two six-Inch
jipes are being installed, the total
distance to be covered being 3,000
feet. The pipes will empty into the
creek above the reservoir and will
thus afford a supply until the rains
some again. It is expected that In
1'ess than a week the new supply will
be provided and about 200 gallons
of water a minute will be pumped up
to  the  reservoir.
At the concluding session of c'uc

*rs, in VlctoriB,i It was decided to

With   cheers  renewed  again   and
again, Sir Wilfrid took his seat.
Duncan Ross
The Dominion of Canada was proposed by Duncan Ross, ex-M.P.
In opening Mr, Ross said he
could have no doubt as to Prince
Rupert being a great city. It had distinctions all Its own. Its days were
the longest in Canada, and for those
who enjoyed the night they could
have the longest nights here. When
it rained it never stopped and when
it stopped It never rained. It was the
port of the greatest deep sea fisheries
In tht world. It has required no
small courage to construct a new
transcontinental road. When "Laurier finished his work," however, Canada would no longer be a fringe
north of the forty-ninth parallel, but
a great country south of the nintieth

marvellous development. If the next

It was ^mp'oBs'itil'e''to' predlA what
Canada would 'be' at':the '^nd of the
century. It would have 25,000,000
or 50,000,000 people. He was proud
10 be a Canadian.
There was 1 more Teason to believe
that Prince Rupert would have 100,-
000 of a population in twenty years
than that Vancouver would have had
It In that: time.' There was a far
richer country contiguous to Prince
Rupert than;-had-Vancouver. It'was
richer in minerals, in coal, sliver,
etc. It had larger fisheries in the
Skeena than In the Fraser, and the
fact that the Skeena was altogether
under the control of Canada made
It easier to conserve the fishing. It
had the greatest deep sea fisheries
and the prairies back of it Were rich.
Everyone ought to be an optimist.
Minister of Railways
hon. George P. Graham, whose
name was also eoupled with the
toast, referring to Prince Rupert
said it had 'been said that' a city set
on a hill could not be hid. A city
set one half a dozen hills therefore
could not surely be hid. He felt
satisfied that Prince Rupert could
never be hid commercially.
Prince Rupert, he believed, wanted
population. It had done the right
thing, for how could it fail to have
babies when the mayor was a Stork.
He made a happy allusion to Canada
Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
Victoria.—Mr. George Gillespie,
who lately retired from the management of. the Canadian Bank of Commerce, was last iweek presented with
a magnificent punch howl of beaten
sl'ver. The bowl which is 12 inches
high and c38 inches in circumference
bears the following inscription:
"Presented to George Gillespie by
some of those who have served under him in the Bank of British Co-"
lumbia and the- Canadian Bank of
Commerce In token of their affection
and respect upon the occasion of his
retirement from active service,
March, 1910."
The bowl which is a splendid piece
of workmanship, was made by Map-
pen & Webb of London. The presentation was accompanied by a
number of letters, which show not
only the respect In which Mr. Gillespie was always held by his staff
but the great personal affection
which few men in business ever win
from their subordinates.
Forestry Report
Victoria.—The members of the
provincial timber and forestry com-
misison, F. J. Fulton, K.C., A. S.
Goodeve, M.P., and A. C. Flumerfelt,
who have been engaged during the
past twelve months in hearing evidence and investigating methods of
forest conservation so as to frame
recommendations for the guidance of
the provincial government in dealing
with tliis great natural asset of British Columbia, are now in consultation on the preparation of their final
and  main report.
This Is expected to be a very valuable document, as all the commissioners have taken the deepest Interest In their work, and, individually and collectively, have not been
sparing of their time and energy in
gaining all tbe information possible,
not only in Canada, but in the United
States and Europe. They have already recommended that timber
licenses be made practically perpetual, and in their final report they
will detail the conditions upon which
this should be done. These will Include such matters as the protection
of the forests from fire and the perpetuation of the province's vast timber wealth by Bome form of reafforestation.
Fernie  Bylaws
Fernie.—The city has voted In
favor of the ratification of a bylaw
to borrow $27,000 for sewer exten
sions and for $4,500 for the purpose
of installing a fire alarm system. The
vote was small, but resulted in the
endorsement, of both propositions by
more than,then ecessary three-fifths
vote. The,!extension of the sewer
wil) be,proceeded with as rapidly as
possible and the installation of an

Made Presentation
Cumberland.—A valedictory presentation qf ,an address and valuable
pair of field glasses was made last
week to Mr.' F. D. Little, M.E., late
general manager of the Wellington
Colliery Company, Limited (Duns-
niulr's) at Cumberland, Vancouver
Island, where are situated the several
mines of the company's Union colliery. Mr. John Matthews, manager
of No. 4 mine; Mr. John Kelsey,
manager of Nos. 5 and 6 mines, and
Mr. W. H. Wall, manager of No. 7
mine, all In Comox district, each testified to the harmonious relations
that had always existed between the
general manager and the officials
under him, and expressed regret that
on the transfer of the properties of
the Wellington Colliery Company to
the Canadian Colliers (Dunsmuir),
Limited, Mr. Little had retired from
the position of general manager. Mr.
Little, after fittingly acknowledging
the kindness and good will that had
prompted the presentation made to
him, mentioned that he had been
connected with the Dunsmuirs' mines
for forty years.

Addressed Open Air
Meeting of Citizens
(Continued from Page One)
rich as any other part of the province.
Oh the prairies was being opened
up rich wheat lands. At Prince Rupert they had one of the best harbors in the world. He would, however, take exception a little to the
remarks of the chairman who omitted the great harbor of Quebec. He
would say that Prince Rupert had,
a harbor equal to the harbor of Quebec. He would tell his own people
that when he went back.
Anything that meant the development of any part of Canada appealed to him as a Canadian. After seeing Prince Rupert he was prouder
than ever of the work. Prince Rupert was destined to be one of the
great cities of the American continent. It was on the shortest route
between Europe and the Orient.
They must consider the Orient.
There was a population of 1,000,-
000,000. It had for 4,000 years been
sleeping. It was awakening. In
tbe single article of tea there
was not a single Anglo-Saxon home
where tea was not found. It was
a comfort in the lumberman's camp,
In the home Of the Indies of fashion
at Ave o'clock in the afternoon when
harmless gossip was retailed.
Tea was not produced anywhere
else but in the Orient. It had become
a staple of the races to which they
Wheat could be given in exchange.
In Vancouver and in Prince Rupert
elevators for the wheat had to be
provided. He looked forward to the
time when elevators would be provided here on this harbor. He was
glad to hear that they did not want
anything for the harbor of Prince
Rupert. He was moved to mark a
cross in his book that he found a
place that wanted nothing. The
captain of the vessel on which he
came here, however, said fifteen
lights were wanted, If they were
needed the government could afford
to give It and he had asked for a.
statement of them.
The transcontinental railway
wou'd be a bond of connection between the Atlantic and the Pacific.
There had been a difficulty In the
past that no bond of union existed
between the different parts of the
Dominion. The G. T. P. would do
away with this. All the people of
Canada would be brought together.
In Canada the policy should be that
all should be united. All should be
true subjects of His Majesty the
King. There was no part of the
Dominion where this policy was better appreciated than In British Columbia and in Prince Rupert. He
had yet to hear the first discordant
note in this country, although he had
met men of all nationalities here.
The people from all other countrtei
would learn tbat the greatest liberty existed under the Union Jack. The
system of monarchy was a crowned
democracy. The King of England
was a credit to the human race.
When he saw what was done and
what was to be done he could not
help but admire those who were here.
The more success they had the greater would be the credit to themselves
and the country to which they belonged.
He had found conditions here such
as to inspire the deepest admiration
for the people. He had found energy, activity, enterprise and brotherly feeling. He was prouder than
ever of Canada. "I was an optimist
when I left Ottawa. I will be an enthusiast when I return."
Sir Wilfrid resumed his seat amid
E. M. McDonald, M.P.
E. M. McDonald, of Pictou, said he
had been led to speculate upon what
would be the ultimate destiny of the
gateway to the Orient. In none of
the other provinces had they found
the same possibilities that (hey found
in Britisli Columbia. The party went
back With full hearts ready to do all
that could be done to assist in the
development of this great country.
Sir Wilfrid had looked forward with
greater expectations to the visit to
Prince Rupert than to any other
place; for here they were to see the
results of the policy of the government which was led by Sir Wilfrid.
Had Sir Wilfrid been defeated in
1904 there would have been no
Prince Rupert. There was a time
when the Conservative party was led
by men who were a credit to the
party. But when Sir John Macdonald was laid away all that was
calculated to arouse enthusiasm in
the party passed away. That party
was in the hands of different men
today. Opposition to the progressive
policy was all that characterized the
men that were dominating the Conservative party in Canada.
Dealing with the naval policy of
the government, the speaker said
that the Conservative party in 1909
voted unanimously for a policy that
they voted against in 1910. Today
no one could tell where that party
stood. The leader of the government stood for a Canadian navy,
built in Canada. He looked forward
to the time when Canada would build
not only on the Atlantic but also on
the Pacific vessels that would
traverse every sea. The government
came not preaching a policy in one
part that It could not preach in another. It came united in support of
the leader that was idolized by all
Canadians and honored In all parts
of  the  British  empire.
In Canada they had men from all
the older lands with traditions from
all these varied parts.
Hon. Mr. Graham
Hon. George P. Graham noticed a
great similarity between the people
here and In the east — the men
seemed to like to get with the ladles
for one thing.    Another thing was
that the ladies hats were the same
size here as in the east.
Everything had its compensation.
There were disadvantages In pioneer
life but the compensations would
come. He had greater sympathy
with the ladies in the development of
a new country.
The National Transcontinental was
not developing the West only. In the
East a new portion of country was
being opened up that would surprise
the world. The same applied to the
prairie sections, In British Columbia
they were again opening the north.
He reviewed the part which the
government had to do In the building
of that line at some length.
The acquiring of a practically
level grade meant that one locomotive would haul as much as two locomotives on any other road. This
would mean a reduction in the rates.
When the C. P. R. was built a
clause was Inserted that the rates
should not be reduced until the profits had leached a certain rate. But
the bookkeeping of the company
never showed that rate and never
would. Through the railway commission the G. T. P. rates would be
absolutely controlled from one end
to the other. That railway commission had the greatest powers of
any body in the world.
If there was ever any dispute as
to level crossings in the city they
might take the matter to the commission.
He was delighted to find some of
the people here that owned their
origin to the French. That race had
done much for Canada in giving such
a man as their chief. Sometimes the
Anglo-Saxons seemed to get a notion
that they had done all in holding
Canada for the British crown. If it
were not for the loyalty to the
mother country of the French race
Canada would be a part of the United
On the question of the tariff the
speaker said Canada was ready to
deal with the United States when the
latter country was prepared to deal
fairly in the matter. Last winter for
the first time a deputation came for
the first time from Washington fo Ottawa. The government was prepared
to discuss the question of trade with
the United States, but It must not
be a one-sided deal.
The present trip was undertaken
to study the conditions In the eWst.
He admonished all to unite to make
this the greatest country In the
world. If the prime minister was
supported a few years longer they
would find the transcontinental not
only completed but the northern
country the envy of the world.
The school children rendered "God
Save the King," after which Sir Wilfrid proposed the cheers for the
King. With three cheers and a tiger
given for the King Mayor Stork proposed three cheers for Sir Wilfrid,
which were given with a will. In
turn three cheers were given for
Mayor Stork, and the gathering dispersed.

Magistrate Dismisses Case of Alleged
Violation of City Bylaw
An information under the new city
bylaw governing the public health
was laid against a local restaurant
this morning. The evidence of the
sanitary inspector and the medical
health officer was given to the effect
that dish water was allowed to run
into the lane.
The question of whose right It
was to connect with a sewer, the
owner of the property or the lessee
came up in connection with it also.
The defendant, who is the lessee,
testified that when he shut off all
water running from his pipe there
was still the same condition in the
lane, showing that the nuisance came
from other places.
The magistrate held that the case
was not fully enough established and
dismissed it, at the same time expressing the hope that everything
would be done to ensure the public

Into his conduct. This Information
was given In the police court this
morning In connection with the adjournment of the hearing of a charge
