LABOR PROPOSITION
BEFORE THE COUNCIL
Ex-Chief of Police NcCarvell Showed Himself Afraid of
Situation—Aldermen Agree to Give Protection
to Contractors Wishing to go on With
Work—Industrial Workers Offer to Assist
The time of the city council last
evening was occupied for the most
part with discussions arising out of
the question of labor in the city and
the difficulties between the contractors and the workingmen. Aid.
Hilditch was elected acting mayor.
Aid. Pattullo, who was absent
from the city when the council decided upon its course of action a few
weeks ago, wrote at some length. He
expressed regret at the condition of
affairs which he found upon return-
> ing to the city. He disapproved of
the course the council took; he expressed the opinion that the work-
ingmen's action was ill-advised and
made the suggestion that a committee consisting of some members of
the council and some outside the
council should go into the whole
question of wages and the cost of
living, contending that the committee that did sit did not sufficiently
Investigate to reach a ripe conclusion.
Mclnnes & Kelly and Watson each
wrote letters stating that they intended to start work the next morning and demanded police protection
so that the men might not be interfered with.
The city solicitor, C. V. Bennett,
gave an opinion based on this as to
the action which the council should
take in protecting contractors. He
advised closing streets where work
was in progress under authority
given them and seeing that no one
was allowed to Interfere with the
work.
The Industrial workers wrote, asking if In a message sent out by the
council the expression had been used
that the trouble was engineered by
"three criminals."
Aid. Pattullo's Letter
Dealing with Aid. Pattullo's letter,
Aid. Morrissey moved that it be received and filed.
Aid. Hilditch thought Aid. Pattullo could have expressed himself
on all these points before the council without writing the letter. He
was, of course, well within his rights
in penning the letter.
Aid. Pattullo admitted he could
have verbally covered the ground.
He, however, wished to go on record.
Aid. Clayton said that this looked
like a little cheap advertising by Aid.
Pattullo. If Aid. Pattullo was so
anxious to settle this trouble, why
did he run away when the subject
was up?
Aid. Pattullo, on a point of order,
objected to the language used by
Aid. Clayton. He desired to place
his'views on record so that there
should be no doubt about it.
Might Be Held Over
Aid. Kerr did not agree with the
move to file this. There were suggestions that might be consulted
later on. He suggested that this
should stand over until the next
meeting.
Aid. Pattullo proposed that this
should stand over until later In the
evening, when other letters would be
dealt with. The situation was a serious one, he realized. ' It was now
nothing more or less than a burlesque.
Aid. Morrissey objected to the language used. The council was endeavoring to deal with the question
in a dispassionate way.
Aid. Newton seconded the motion
that the letter be filed and the motion carried.
Criminal Charge
The communication from the Industrial workers as to the use of the
words that "three criminals" were
engineering the trouble, was then
dealt with.
Aid. Kerr said he never heard
any member of the council make,
such a statement. The only person
he had heard to use this was the
ex-chief of police, who named Casey.
He (Aid. Kerr) had known Casey
for sixteen years and denied the accusation as to him.
Aid. Newton thought they might
as well deal with the whole subject
now.    He recounted the facts as he
TO HAVE NEW CHIEF
W. H. Vickers Has Been Offered Position
as Head of the Police
Department
A Popular Choice Made by the Commissioners—Former Occupant
Has Vacated Position
called at the request of the ex-chief
of police, McCarvill, who had explained that he would be unable to
cope with the trouble. He denied
that 'he (Aid. Newton) ever made
a suggestion asking as to who should
bear the expense. He had no doubt
that the ex-chief of police was the
one who gave information as to the
meeting. He did not 'give It truthfully. It was not the work of a
newspaper to take the distorted story
of a dismissed official and give publicity to what was calculated to inflame public opinion.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know
what instructions were given to Aid.
Sm/ith and why was the meeting
held in Mayor Smith's office.
Chief Was Cause of Meeting
Aid. Kerr said he was summoned
by Chief McCarvill, who was excited.
He saw all kinds of trouble. He
wanted either redcoats or blue jackets. There were no instructions
given to Aid. Smith while he was
there. He and others of the council
did not feel alarmed.
Aid. Newton said that Aid. Smith
was to communicate with Victoria
and ascertain if the Rainbow was in
northern waters with a view to seeing if it might not be kept here.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to have the
message produced.
Clerk Woods said there was no
message that he knew of.
Aid. Pattullo said 'that he felt
sure steps were taken to ask for protection.
An   Explanation
Aid. Hilditch explained the situation. He believed that Aid. Smith
was asked to. communicate with
.Mayor Manson to find out if the
Rainbow was in northern waters
and if she was to keep in touch by
wireless.
Aid. Pattullo believed that the explanations were simply for the purpose of members of the council to
get from under and put the blame on
ex-Chief McCarvill.
Aid. Clayton said that as far as
he was concerned he was prepared
to see that men who wanted to go
to work at $3 a day should be protected. If the ctiy police could not
afford the protection other assistance should be got.
It was decided to inform the Industrial workers that no such language as that the trouble was "engineered by three criminals" had
been used by members of the council.
Protection Assured
The question of protection, In an-
tracting firms asking for it, was considered in conjunction with the solicitor's opinion.
Aid. Hilditch said that he had
called a special meeting of the city
council in the afternoon to consider
the question raised. He was in favor
of dealing fairly with all. He believed the contractors could rightfully demand protection and should
get it. On the other hand, he would
expect the contractors to live up to
their contracts and either finisli
their work on time or pay the penalty
of $25 a day required. There should
lie no favor shown either side.
Aid. Clayton did not agree with
this. If conditions had arisen which
made it difficult for the contractors
to carry out their work he did not
think they should be made lo suffer.
He moved that protection be given
along the lines suggested by the solicitor.
Aid. Morrissey's Views
Aid. Morrissey pointed out that
the Provincial Government and the
Dominion Government gave extensions of time. Peculiar conditions
arose. The contractors, If they had
done their best to carry out the contracts should be fairly treated.
Aid. Newton did not want to act
unfairly with the contractors. If
these contractors were to demand
the protection of the city they
should be ready to accept the conditions of the contracts.
Aid. Pattullo said that If that resolution were carried out the "boys"
were going to lose.    He,    however,
SEEK INFORMATION
Alderman Pattullo Was in an Inquisitive
and Fault Finding
Mood
Aid.
Kerr   Wished   to   Know
sewer Work Was Being
Done by Council
How
Chief McCarvell has vacated the
office of chief of police of the city
and has left Prince Rupert. The
position has been offered W. H.
Vickers, formerly chief of the provincial force, who has the confidence
of every citizen and who is looked
upon as a model officer. Mr. Vickers has tendered his resignation as
assessor in the provincial office to
the department at Victoria, and
upon the acceptance of it will assume the duties of the office. In the
meantime Sergeant Phillipson is performing the duties of chief of police.
The resignation of Chief McCarvell follows as a result of dissatisfaction felt on the part of the police
commissioners with the way in
which that officer was administering
the affairs of his office. The chief
was instructed early in the year to
see that the laws were enforced and
that undesirables were not permitted in the city. Facilities were afforded the chief to carry out these
instructions, the ctiy voting the necessary meney for special services to
do the detective work required.
Commissioner Stephens at the last
monthly meeting of the board
showed that he was not satisfied
with the results obtained. The chief
was admonished to live up to the instructions and see that the law was
enforced. Finally, the commissioners became convinced that the chief
was not doing as well as he could
and he was again taken to task. He
resigned and on Sunday morning
left the city.
The commissioners tendered tbe
position to Mr. Vickers, who accepted conditional on his resignation
being accepted at Victoria. He is
awaiting word from his department
headquarters.
In accepting the office of chief of
police, Mr. Vickers is going back to
a work in which he spent many years
as a member of the provincial force,
training under Superintendent Hus-
sey. He likes the work and prefers
it to the position he now occupies as
assessor, owing to the fact that the
present position calls for too much
inside work to suit one who has been
accustomed to the outside.
There is a general feeling of satisfaction In the city that "Billy Vickers" Is to assume charge of the police. He is genial and courteous
and at the same time unrelenting in
the discharge of his duty and will
see that law and order prevail at all
times.

Place
Aid. Pattullo returned to the council last evening in a very inquisitive
mood after his absence. He wanted
to know on what authority the chairman of the streets commltte gave instructions that workmen under one
class of labor were paid under another class.
Aid. Hilditch wanted definite
statements. He did not know what
it was Aid. Pattullo was referring to.
Aid. Pattullo went further and explained that he had been informed
by Mr. Clements of the engineering
department that men were put on the
45c rate who were engaged at the
37 y2 rate on the instructions of the
chairman.
Aid. Hilditch said this was incorrect. There was a classification of
the workmen and on that classification they were paid.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know if
the council passed on this scale of
wages, which was produced.
He was informed it had, and Aid.
Hilditch said on that the men were
paid. Sewer work and mason's helpers got 45 cents an hour. Unclassified labor got 37% cents.
Aid. Morrissey explained that the
council was not legally empowered
to fix a minimum rate. The action
of last year's council in so doing was
not a legal act.
Aid. Pattullo further took exception to the acting mayor leaving the
city without leaving an executive
head.
Aid. Hilditch said he understood
Aid. Smith went south on private
business.
Aid. Pattullo took exception also
to Mayor Manson being in Victoria
in consultation with D'Arcy Tate, of
the Grand Trunk Pacific instead of
being in Prince Rupert.
Aid. Clayton made a suggestion
that possibly they realized Aid. Pattullo had returned.
Fraser Street Sewer
Aid. Kerr wanted to know how
the sewer on Eighth street and Fraser street was being put in. He understood it was by force account and
was costing much more than It colud
be done by the city.
A Id. Hllditch said that S. P. Mc-
Alordie v-as doing it on force account. He 'iad not seen the authority of the city engineer from the old
council for doing a part of it.
At the council meeting last night
there were four offers of sites for
a city hall received in reply to the
advertisement of the city clerk. This
advertisement appeared as a result
of a motion by Aid, Newton, who
did not approve of deciding upon the
market place as a location without
seeking other sites to put before the
public.
if the market place were selected
an attempt would be made to have
a grant of it made to the city by the
Provincial Government. Last year's
council approved of the market place
site and the members of this year's
council who were on the board last
year supported it.
The new sites offered were as follows:
Lots 3, 4, 5 and 6, Block 12, Section 1, being 100 feet by 110 feet,
offered by Donald McLeod for $21,-
000.

was going to vote in favor of giving
protection but not for that reason.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know If
Aid. Pattullo would be agreeable to
the other suggestion that the "pound
of flesh" be demanded from the contractors.
Aid. Pattullo said not as a "pound
of flesh," because there might be
circumstances over which the contractors had no control which made
It impossible for them to carry out
their contracts.
The motion to give protection carried.
Workers to Assist
Mr. Carroll, of tlie Industrial
workers, asked leave to speak and
said that if tlie council was agreeable, the Industrial workers would
agree to provide the protection that
was asked for without the expense
of police. The workers now, as all
along wished to conduct the demand
for Increased pay along peaceful
lines.
Aid. Newton proposed to accept
the suggestion.
Aid. Morrissey was In favor of
drawin ga police force from the
ranks of the Industrial workers, paying them what would be paid to any
others.
This was met by the announcement from members of the workers
that under the terms of membership
they could not accept any position
under pay as policemen.

In response to a request from a deputation of Brisbane merchants tlie
Prime Minister announces that the
government is prepared to open the

Postmaster-General the Cabinet is

Mayor    Manson and    D'Arcy  '•
Tate, the solicitor of the Grand   ,j
Trunk Pacific, will reach Prince  "
Rupert tomorrow, it is expected.  '
Following their arrival negotia-  '
tions between  the city and  the  '
Grand Trunk  Pacific looking to
the  settlement  of    the     Grand
Trunk Pacific taxation question
:  will be proceeded with.    There
'  is no denying that this is some-
'  tiling of the most vital interest
'  to all citizens of Prince Rupert.
This     is     something     about
'  which there should surely be no
- politics or sectional conflict.    If
' the city Is to get the best bar-
'  gain  possible   its  citizens  must
'  be prepared to stand united and
■ look only to the city's welfare,
! independent of who may be the
' representatives  In  the negotia-
1  tions.    The subject is one that
! affects the material interests of
:  the city.    Prince Rupert citizens
can surely be depended upon to
look to their own best interests.
When last year's council approached the subject The Journal pleaded for a similar action.
The paper can therefore ask the
same for    this    council.    There
should  be  nothing done  which
will interfere with an early settlement.    Enough    has already :
been said along lines that may
tend to impede tlie progress of
negotiations.     In   the   interests  '
of the city.  The Journal  feels !
that it is voicing the sentiments  :
of the best elements here when
it advises every one to carefully ;
consider  every  action  lest the :
ends sought are not reached.
Mayor Manson is returning from
Victoria tomorrow by the Prince Rupert. He will, it is expected, be
accompanied by D'Arcy Tate, the solicitor of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
and negotiations looking to the settlement of the Grand Trunk Pacific
taxation question will be continued
here, it is expected. It Is the wish
of all citizens that this question,
which has been magnified by Interested parties on the outside to the
detriment of the city, may be amicably settled.
How far negotiations have proceeded between the mayor and tbe
company's representative is not
known here. The citizens may rest
assured that Mayor Manson has carried out his pre-election pledges to
approach the subject with an open
mind and endeavor to reach a conclusion that will be fair and satis-
factor yto the citizens of the city.
The approval of the electors will be
sought when such a proposition is in
shape to present.
Reports have been published in
Vancouver which seek to convey the
impression that Prince Rupert is to
be wiped off the map if a settlement
is not reached. In view of the studied attempts in tlie same direction
that have been made from time to
time, these reports will not disturb
the people of this city. They are
given for a purpose and garbled reports are used doubtless to convey
the meaning intended.

"There will be 10,000 boy scouts
in Ontario by next September," was
the statement of different members
of the Ontario council at the annual
meeting of the Dominion organization. In every province except Manitoba, the boy scout movement has
been organized with provincial councils, and one is in the course of or-
ganizatiop there as well, it was reported. In each province the movement is to be pushed during the
oming summer, and It is expected
that in each there will be corresponding success with Ontario.
The annual meeting was held in
the railway committee rooms. Karl
Grey, chief scout, was present. Lieutenant-Colonel Sherwood, Dominion
ommlssioner, presided, and many of
ih,. commissioners from other par's

COLONIAL OFFICIALS
Lord Strathcona Does not Approve of
of Plans for Exchange of
Officials
The      Present      Arrangement,      He
Thinks, Works Satisfactorily
With regard to the question of
the interchange of officials between
the Colonial Office and the Dominions, Lord Strathcona was interviewed aud gave his views on the
subject. It is evident that Canada
does not attach so much Importance
to the qeustion as Australia or New
Zealand.
Lord Strathcona expressed himself
as satisfied with the existing arrangements, and was not in favor of
any scheme of this kind. Tlie High
Commissioners of the various Dominions, be said, were always in
touch with tlie Imperial Government
and with the Colonial Office, and
were quite able to supply all the local knowledge of the Dominions and
of their attitude on any particular
question which could he desired. The
suggested exchange of officials, in
order to provide a more intimate
knowledge on both sides, was a mere
matter of routine, and he did not
see what great good it could do. The
men who were brought over here
—and the same would apply to those
who would be sent out—would not
determine policies.
The High Commissioner answers
all the purposes required, said Lord
Strathcona, who referred to the correspondence on the subject which
took place in the year 1880 between
the Imperial and the Canadian governments relating to the appointment of Sir A. F. Gait as High Com-
missioner to -represent Canada In
London. The Canadian authorities
then set forth the opinion that it
was manifestly impossible that the
ni'ews of the Canadian government
on the many questions at issue concerning tiie administration of affairs
in Canada could be submitted for the
intelligent consideration of His Majesty's govenrment in any other mode
than that of personal communication
had with their representatives in
London. What better medium of
ascertaining Canadian opinion can
you have than the accredited representative of a Dominion? From
himself, or, in his absence, from the
official secretary (Mr. Griffith) of
this department (and this is a department of the Canadian government), it. would be possible to get
reliable information, and the "local
color" in respect of any Canadian
matters. Reminded of the military
exchanges which have been recently
'Instituted, Lord Strathcona remarked that that was a different
thing. He approved of such visits
as were recently paid by Sir Charles
Lucas to Australia and New Zealand.
There was no knowledge to be compared with that obtained on the
spot, and it was well that high officials should be brought into direct,
contact with the statesmen and administrators oversea. "We desire
to draw closer," said His Lordship,
in conclusion, "to the Mother Country—and the closer the better, but
f cannot see that much good would
result from an interchange of the
younger and subordinate officials."
Apart from the wider question of
policy, which is the standpoint from
-which Lord Strathcona mainly discusses it, there is a strong feeling
in many quarters that a scheme for
the exchange of officials would promote a closer Imperial bond and re-
uer advantageously from the purely
administrative point of view. It
irould enable Iho young men in tbe
Colonial Office to obtain a firsthand knowledge of the Dominions,
vould broaden their views, and In
the same way would make them
more useful and practical officials.
In the same way It would provide
the young men from the Dominions
»ifh a wider sphere In the Imperial
Service tor their activity and ambition.

PACIFIC FISHING
Review of the Industry, During the Past
Season Shows its
Importance
Alaska Has the Largest Record, According to the Statistics Which
Are Supplied
The Pacific Fisherman, of Seattle,
has devoted Its annual number, just
issued, to a comprehensive review of
the Pacific fishing industry. In a
leading article entitled "Feeding tlie
Universe,' it has marshalled facts
and figures to demonstrate the great
extent of the industry, the products
of which, it declares, "constitute an
important part of the food of every
civilized or semi-civilized nation on
the globe."
The fishing industry of the Pacific
Coast, including Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and
California, produced in the year
1910, the enormous amount of 523,-
391,601 pounds of food fishes and
fish products, valued at $39,706,-
400. Enough meat, comments the
Pacific Fisherman, to sustain an
army of a million men in the field,
on a ration of one pound a day for
nearly a year and a half. Our own
province contributed $8,602,306 to
this total, which represented a capital employed in the British Columbia fishing industry of $6,823,852,
requiring the labor of 19,500 persons, with their earnings totalling
$5,580,000. In all the economic
value of the industry for the Pacific
Coast is represented by its employment of 58,826 men, and its wage
contributions of $18,000,000 annually.
In detail the production by varieties of fish used for food purposes is
as striking as the total, The canned
salmon production leads with 4,810,-
082 cases of forty-eight pound cans,
valued at $23,024,825. Alaska produces the greatest quantity- 2,387,-
814 cases valued at $18,132,977, and
British Columbia next, 762,201 cases
valued at $4,192,105. Next In value
is tlie production of fresh salmon,
amounting to 82,198,200 pounds,
valued at $4,578,479. Washington
produces in pounds, 55,462,800;
Oregon, IS,161,000;; California, -I,-
S84.800; Alaska, 1,200,000; and
British Columbia, 2,500,000. -Halibut ranks next, with 53,006,376
pounds, valued at $2,650,880. Of
this total British Columbia contributes 22,500,000 against Washington
state's production of 30,506,376.
Mild cured salmon comes fourth In
the list with 23,045 tierces, weighing
about 850 pounds each, and valued
at $2,074,050. For British Columbia
the total In mild cured salmon Is
1,638 tierces, valued at $147,420.
The other great flBb food products,
such as salt and dried salmon, her-
makes up the total quoted, namely:
A value of $39,706,490, in which
are figured whale products, oil and
guano and the products of the fur
seal rookeries which are to be subtracted to get the actual value of the
fish food products to be credited to
the Pacific fisheries.
In reviewing the production of
each grand subdivision of the Pacific
Coast, this journal shows that Alaska leads all the other districts by its
output this year in fishery products
of a value of $14,830,217. The
backbone of the Alaska industry, it
states, is the great salmon industry,
the canned salmon production alone
being worth $9,881,682. The balance is made up of fresh, salted and
dried salmon, fresh and frozen halibut, salt codfish, herring, fur seals,
whaling and other products. A proportion of the Halibut credited to
Washington and British Columbia
production, is taken in Alaskan waters, but how large, the Fisherman
does not venture to assert.
Washington's fishery products obtain their value in the salmon, halibut and oyster catches. This state,
it is remarked, owing to her valuable salnion fisheries ou Puget Sound,
and the north bank of the Columbia
river as well as at Gray's Harbor
and Willapa Bay, on the outside
coast, stands second in the value of
her fishery products, showing a total
for the past year of $10,171,929.
The oyster industry also is counted
a valuable asset of the state and is
said to be growing so rapidly that
it promises to become one of the
most important branches of the fishing business.
British Columbia is given credit
for showing a more varied industry
than any other district on the coast
with the exception of Alaska; for
having the most valuable halibut
fisheries In the world; for her herring fisheries in tiie vicinity of Nanalmo,   nol   being   eclipsed   on     the
west coast of Vancouver Island having proved a remarkable source of
wealth and putting her at the head
of the list in this respect.

Four eminent artists have placed
their services at the disposal of the
City of Westminster with the aim of
elaborating a thoroughly artistic
and effective decoration of the
streets on the occasion of the coronation.   The artists are:
Sir W. B. Richmond, R. A.
Mr.  Frank  Brangwyn,  R.  A.
Professor Gerald Moira.
Professor E. Lanterl.
In a letter to the Westminster
City Council they state:
"The efforts made at the coronation of the late King entailed heavy
expenditure, and the result was, on
the whole, excellent. But we feel
that, with ample time in which to
make preparations, something still
more worthy of the Ctiy of Westminster could be achieved.
"Our idea is that- the council, or
the special committee to which the
coronation arrangements are entrusted, should avail itself of the
services of a committee of artists
who are willing to prepare designs
and put forward a scheme.
"Our proposals are that In the
matter of providing triumphal arches
and In the decoration of the streets,
unity In design and color schemes
should be preserved, and that different parts of the route should be so
treated as to represent in symbolical
form the various states and dominions of the Empire, We should be
glad to know what pecuniary provision the council is prepared to make,
and we would then give details of
our proposal in strict accordance
with the limitations of expenditure
placed upon us.
"We may point out that we are
anxious not to add to the cost of the
decorations by imposing any charge
for the work of design and supervision, and our services would be
gratuitously placed at your disposal.
We may add that the scheme has the
warm approval of Sir L. Alma-
Tadenia and many other distinguished artists."
The state performance to be given
at Covent Garden by command during the coronation festivities will
take place on Monday, June 26.
A court of revision and appeal
under the provisions of the "Assessment Act" and "Public Schools Act"

PLAGUE OUTBREAKS
Dreaded Disease Makes its Appearance
in Scattered Parts of the
World
Civilization   Does   Not  Seem   to   Be
Free of This Old Form
of Pestilence
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
u We are now only beginning to discern the truth about the plague.
Men thought It had almost vanished
from the earth, says the London
Times. Medical science Ignored its
existence, and In the day of trial
found it hardly remembered hpw to
treat It, if it ever knew. But the
fact is that plague has always existed in certain spots. It has never
left India, for Instance. Investigation has shown that there were continual outbreaks at last century in
the highlands of Kumaon, under the
shadow of the Himalayas. It is at
least possible that Bombay was infected in 1896 from the Himalayas
rather than from Hongkong. Plague
has been continuously present in the
mountains of Assyria, in Western
Arabia, south of Mecca. It has
never really left Mesopotamia, or the
Chinese province of Yunnan. There
Is an epidemic centre of long standing in Uganda. Why at the close of
the nineteenth century plague should
suddenly have flared forth again
with widespread intensity is one of
the mysteries of disease which no
one can pretend to fathom. The
cause is probably quite unconnected
In the main, with the development
of Intercommunication between nations. The sinister feature of the
present pandemic is that it is accompanied by a serious prevalence of
the disease among the lower animals, who are liable to communicate
It to man. That is not a new condition, but much of the data concerning it is new. In England we have
the disquieting rat epidemic in East
Anglia. The province of Transbaikalia, which is in suspicious proximity to Kliarbin, finds that plague
is endemic within its borders among
a species of marmot, which is extensively hunted. Marmots in the Caucasus and in Thibet are also found to
be apparently permanently infected.
In the United States, west of the
Rocky Mountains, a new and disturbing endemic centre of plague infection appears to have been set up
within the last six years among the
"ground squirrels" of California.
The rat Is not the only culprit, and
these centres of infection among rodents, constitute a far more insidious danger for tlie world than occasional human epidemics. Modern research into plague is still only in its
infancy, but already It has suggested
tl* lesson that we must awake from
the dream that new civilization is
necessarily exempt from the graver
forms of pestilence. If we continue
to cherish that delusion we may
have a rude awakening.

Till-:   MAYOR'S   RETURN
Pen Sketch of the Government
ers and the Opposition
Lead-
i
.Mayor Manson will return tomorrow and there is no doubt he will
find considerable work to do. It is
equally certain that during his absence in Victoria lie lias not been
negligent of tlie city's interests and
when he arrives In- will probably
be in a position to show that he has
been devoting a considerable time
while away to matters that will work
to the advantage  of this place.
He has been ridiculed for having
been visiting relatives in Vancouver
instead of coming home. We have
no direct Information on the subject,
but, judging Mr. Manson from his
past record, we feel quite safe in
denying the report that that was his
mission. It will be found, we expect, that he had business In Vancouver pertaining to this city's affairs which called him there.
Last evening Aid. Pattullo at the
council meeting took exception to
Mayor Manson going to Victoria
with D'Arcy Tate, the Grand Trunk
Pacific representative. That alderman seems to be fearful about the
influence of Victoria and of Premier
McBride. We have no doubt he will
openly acknowledge that he Is fearful of that influence. Aid. Pattullo
is too prone to see party politics in
every move.
For our part, if any aid in settling
the Grand Trunk Pacific taxation
question can be obtained from Premier McBride, we would be satisfied
to have tlie mayor stay in Victoria
even a longer time than he did. If
aid can be got by a visit to Ottawa
we would be perfectly agreeable to
the trip being taken there. The settlement of this question is of such
prime importance that anything that
will assist in a solution is not to be
left undone. Tlie citizens of Prince
Rupert as a whole so regard it. It
is not a question to lie played with
and for that reason we have all
along, during the life of last year's
council as well as during the present
year, refrained from criticisms that
we felt often were warranted, in
order that no sectional feelings be
stirred up.
How These Men strike the Observer
From the Press Gallery
of the House
THE LABOR SITUATION
With a contest on between tlie
working men and the employers of
labor in the city, having for its object from the standpoint of the laborers an increase in pay, it is surely
unwise on the part of any section of
the community to do anything that
would have the effect of arousing
any further feeling. The course of
the Optimist and of some connected
witli that paper within the past few
days can only be described as an introduction of despicable politics. By
exaggeration and distortion tlie
council is represented as taking the
course of calling in naval and military forces to combat imaginary
outbreaks on the part of the workers.
An explanation of the situation
shows that  a  chief  »f  police  whose
Looking down from tlie press gallery of tlie local legislature one is
struck by the four rows of heads of
the seated figures of members in the
chamber below, says a press representative of the News-Advertiser.
The rows are diversified and illuminated by bald pates interspersed
to shed a halo-like glow over the
circle of their more hirsute neighbors. There are the bald, the half-
bald, the neutral and the anti-bald,
and surely the most prominent
among the latter is the gray and
wig-like covering of the Premier
himself. For nature has blessed the
Hon. Mr. McBride with a crown of
glory which would dignify as well
the chief dignitary of the court of
justice as it does a leader in the
councils of state, and it is surely fitting that the Hon of British Columbia politics should have a lion's
mane. Since assuming the premiership eight, years ago, the Hon.
Richard McBride has risen steadily
in tlie estimation of his followers
and the country at large. He has
shown that he combines at once
strength       and      judgment. He
knows when to strike and strike
hard, but in ordinary times there
is no one more graceful or soothing,
or who knows so well how to take
the sting away from the most peremptory refusal. The same fact that
has enabled him to hold on to office .by a shoestring during the first
years of his administration enables
him now to keep in harmony a
rather topheavy majority. Mediaeval in aspect, lie is modern in
method.
On the premier's left hand sits
his right hand man, "Napoleon"
Bowser. With liim again tlie short,
crisp, iron-grey locks are emblematic
of strength and business judgment.
A true Daniel in the courage which
enables him to stand alone, like that
feerless prophet he often finds himself in the lion's den, but generally
manages to come out unscathed.
The sharp eyes and rather hard-set
jaw are those of a fighter, but he is
at least a good fighter, and puts
force without malice into his blows
He has a marvelous mastery of detail, and what he promises he will
perform. Whatever his pugnacity,
it is softened by a generosity and
genial sense of humor, that have
helped to gather around him a large
circle of personal admirers and
friends. The courage with which
he has stood hostile criticism on
the False Creek question in the past
and is standing still more on the
South Vancouver annexation question at, present must win for him an
admiration even among those who
oppose him, which will stand him in
good stead when the questions are
settled by the second thought, which
Is better than first, when the sporadic indignation of tlie moment  has
prowess  seems   lo   have   been   taxed
unwarranted  llie(i away and  "le 'lexl  election is
when he took the
course of ejecting a defenseless reporter from his office, became
alarmed and Implored the council to
give  him "red  coals."
Al any oilier time than one like
this, the whole matter could lie
treated as a juke. Under present
conditions ii had its serious aspect,
although to the honor of the working men of tlie city il can be said
they have shown much inure moderation and good sense than has been
shown by some others.
Jn order to derive the fullest benefit from the wild report, steps were
taken to meet the working men and
under pretense of advising moderation, langatige was used that could
only be interpreted as calculated to
make trouble.
It Is to be hoped that the course
pursued was not the result of concerted action by any section, although It must be admitted there is
not lacking evidence to indicate that
it was such.
The working men of Prince Rupert have shown that they know
how lo conduct, a crusade in their
own Interests In a manner that reflects credit upon them. There has
been no attempt to use force but a
studied  determination  to resist any-
in sight.
On the premier's right sits Hon.
Price Ellison, whose thin fair hair
bids soon to leave him in Ihe bald-
headed class. The' minister of finance is nf country, breed, ami there
is lhat about his face and figure sng-
gestlve "f the English squire of the
good old type, lie radiates wholehearted generosity, mingled with a
great deaj of practical shrewdness.
Side by side to tlie right of Hon.
Mr. Ellison sits Hon. .Mr. Mel'htllips
president of the council, and Mr. F.
L. Carter-Cotton, the expresident;
and surely there never was a sharper
contrast between two men. Mr.
McPhllllps, dark-haired and impulsive, bristles with energy from the
tips of his restless fingers to tlie
ends of his exposed moustache. Mr.
Cotton, bald and fair, is a picture of
shrewd reserve, his meditative pose
when he sits with arms folded and
head slightly bent being somewhat
suggestive of the Bhodisat. Both
are alike, however, in their reverence for things as they exist, and in
their sincere desire to serve their
own generation.
An alert figure on the back row
of ministers Is Hon. Dr. Young, provincial secretary.    With his brushed-
up hair and high-strung mien he appears to be a blonde replica of Hon.
Mr. McPhllllps, but he is much
more cautious and reserved, though
when filled by an unjust remark he
can spring a retort with lightning-
like rapidity. His educational culture and knowledge of medicine, fit
him well for the position he holds,
since both the schools and the board
of health come under his department.
To the right of the provincial secretary sits Hon. Thos. Taylor, minister of public works, a quiet, hardworking man whose face carries on
it some reflex of worry over the
thousand duties of his Important office. Hon. Mr. Taylor Is also among
the fair-hajred class, and his crop
begins to wilt a little. He is a most
courteous and painstaking minister,
and if be does not speak much in the
house it is well known that it is
less for want of ability than for want I
of time.
In striking contrast to Hon. Mr.
Taylor appears, his right-hand
neighbor, Hon. Mr. Ross, minister of
lands, the latest and youngest addition to the cabinet. He, too, might
well be classed with the premier
among the anti-bald, his mop of
black hair making an effective color
contrast to that of his leader. His
strong, smiling face and good humor
in speech win for him friends all the
time. He has presented a number of
bills to the house during the session,
and has explained and defended
thm all with an ability that shows
that his brain is not unevenly
matched with his body, which is of
a giant type.     '
'Turning from the government to
the opposition, the Most striking figure is that of Mr. Hawthornthwaite,
of Nanaimo, whose dark hair has
shed off the crown of his scalp, leaving him in a state of incipient baldness. Brisk, ready witted and occasionally frothy, Mr. Hawthornthwaite occupies a unique position
in the house. While occupying the
seat of leader of the opposition he
not infrequently comes into collision
with Mr. Brewster, of the real opposition. In the main, however, his
blows are directed at the government
and if sometimes rather illogical, be
is always forcible and seldom uninteresting. Should he leave the house,
as fte intimated on the closing day,
lie will be badly missed. He is sociably inclined and personally popular, and his witty remarks enliven
the proceedings with many a laugh.
Of a different style is his smaller
built colleague, Mr. Parker Williams.
He, too, is a humorist, but of a different stamp, his fun consisting of
dry sarcasm and racy illustrations.
During the past session he displayed
an occasional bitterness, especially
against the prime minister, quite out
of keeping with his genial smile. As
a speaker he is rather monotonous at
times, and when worked up mops the
perspiration from his brow with a
handkerchief. Personally Air. Williams is of a kindly and genial temperament, but it does seem as if of
late years the bitterness of the anti-
capitalists is beginning to eat into
his bones.
Mr. Brewster's head is as smooth
as his manner, and as level as his
solid sense. During the session he
has plowed a lonely furrow with
ability and courage, and has won
the esteem of his very numerous opponents. By bis side sits Mr. Jar
dine, a somewhat bristly political
Ishmaellte, who, elected as a Lib
eral, now votes as a Conservative,
though he does not yet seem to have
gained a place in their councils. A
year ago the opposition was a quartette, with Mr. Hawthornthwaite as
leading soprano, Mr. Williams as a
rather monotonous tenor, Mr.
Williams as a very liberal bass, and
With .Mr. Jardine to supply tbe discords. Tliis session it Is reduced to
a trio, and should Mr. Hawthornthwaite disappear, another session
may see il reduced lo a lonely duet
between -Mr. Brewster on one side
and Mr, Williams on (lie other.
Should Mr. Hawthornthwaite's seat
pass over to the Conservatives they
will be able to entertain the house
with variations on "The Vacant
Chair,."
It is announced that a Canadian
syndicate headed by Sir William
Mackenzie, which already owns the
electric railway and lighting system
in Monterey, Mex., has acquired a
concession from the government for
the construction of a large dam
across the Balasas river and installation of a large hydro-electric plant
In the state of Guerrero. The contract for the construction of tho dam
has been let, and the work will cost
approximately $3,000,000. The Mackenzie syndicate Is also said to be
negotiating for the purcliaes of valuable railroad concessions.

NEW TYPE OF LAKE FREIGHTER
A freight steamship, The Toller, is
now being built in England for the
Canadian    canal    and    lake    trade,
which is a decided innovation. It is
simply a hull, without any top hamper, masts or even funnels, as it will
be operated by internal combustion
oil engines, the same as automobiles.
It will be the first boat of this kind
to be operated on the Great Lakes
for commercial purposes, and will
also be the first vessel in the canal
carrying trade to use double propellers, which, it is claimed, will prove
of great advantage in manoeuvering.
The adoption of this type of boat
is in line with the natural evolution
of the canal freighter. With the
short season and high wages paid,
shippers have been using all their
ingenuity to get as much out of a
given size of vessel as Is possible.
The lake tonnage is divided into two
classes, the big upper freighter and
the canal boat, while the latter is divided into two types, the package
freighter and and the bulk carrier.
The great increase in the bulk shipments of coal from Lake Erie and
Lake Ontario points to Montreal, the
the building of the Port Colborne
elevator and the elevators in Montreal, together with the pulp wood
trade, have of late tended to make
the bulk freighter of a most important type. Tbe continual struggle has
been to get the greatest possible
deadweight on the limited draft. But
with the limitations of the canals
and locks, it Is Impossible to increase
the dimensions of ships, so that any
increase in deadweight must be taken oul of tho material and equipment. Tlie limit in reduction of
weight of material used In construction lias long been reached, so that
the only method of increasing carrying capacity was by reducing tlie
weight of the propelling machinery.
With this idea In view internal
combustion oil engines have been
adopted for the new boat, which was
designed by John Reid & Co., Board
of Trade Building, Montreal, Tlie
introduction of this type of engine
has effected such a saving of space
and deadweight that The Toiler will
carry nearly 3,000 tons or about 97,-
000 bushels of grain through the
canals, an increase of about 15,000
bushels over the largest canal carriers fitted with steam engines.
To get such a carrying capacity
boilers had to be dispensed with altogether. The boat's propelling machinery consists of two sets of oil
engines driving twin screws. The
latter feature Is a revolution In itself
as It will be the first canal boat so

equipped. The advantage claimed is
that the vessel will be under better
control while manoeuvering in narrow waters and in lining up previous
to entering a lock. The engines are
directly connected, without clutches,
to the propeller shafts, and arc a
modification of the Diesel engine.
There Is no Injection system of any
kind, therefore, no delicate joints or
connections to get broken or loose,
which might stop Hie engines at a
critical moment. The starting and
reversin ggear is simple, and said to
be more certain than with the steam
engine, and is done by means of
compressed aid, the same power being also used to drive the steering
engine and other auxiliaries. The
fuel to be used is crude petroleum,
which Is Injected Into the cylinder
without being vaporized, where it is
ignited and burned in a charge of
hot air. Tills air when the oil is
injected is at a dull red heat, generated under very high compression.
The Toiler will arrive at Montreal
and go Into service early in the coming navigation season, and will be
the first gas or oil propelled vessel
to cross the Atlantic. It is regarded
by ship engineers as a big step in the
solution of the canal navigation
problems, and the prediction Is made
that within a decade or two steam
will be out of date on canal and lake
boats.
In connection with the construction of The Toiler, experiments are
being carried on with high speed oil
engines in combination with electric
transmission, which it is expected
will mark a further advance in economy and efficiency In Canadian canal transportation. An interesting
feature will be that through suitable
switches and connections the control
of tlie propellers will be placed In
Hie hands of the navigating officer
right In tlie bow of the Ship. This
will be a very great advantage in
handling a vessel through the narrow canal channels and locks.

pay  all     these    millions?     Canada
Sir William Van Horn has addressed the following letter to Mr.
Charles Caput, chairman of the Anti-
Reciprocity League:
"Sir—I regret that, having to
leave for England on Thursday I
shall not be able to attend the meeting of the Anti-Reciprocity League,
and give my views on the question
of reciprocity.
"What I have to say on the
subject has no reference to party
politics, for 1 have nothing to do
with pontics, nor any particular Interests. 1 speak only as an individual who for the past thirty years has
been working heart and soul for the
upbuilding of this country and one
to whom the great development of
the past two decades has been a
source of Immense pride and satisfaction.
"To my amazement and distress
and shame I now see the magnificent
work of a generation traded away
for a childish' sentiment, the splendid commercial and industrial position we have readied and our proud
independence bartered for a few
wormy plums, and I feel it my duty
to join in the protest which is started from every station of the country. Today we are in an enviable
position, with a commerce three
times as great per capita as that of
the United States, and without a
cloud in our sky save the one which
has just now been raised. Does not
common sense tell us to stay wliere
we are and to let well enough alone?
The termination of the old reciprocity agreement by the United States
in 1S66 was a heavy blow to Canada, and the fourteen years which
followed were full of trials and despondency, for Canada then had no
west. She was thrown back on herself by the Great. Lakes and she had
not in herself a market for the
products or a market for the support
of any manufacturing concern. During these years annexationists were
bred of hopelessness, and many good
and honest people urged annexation
as the only future open to the country.
Canada's Awakening
"Then came in 1879, our national
policy and factory chimneys began to
appear above our tree tops and their
number rapidly increased. Then
came the Canadian Pacific Railway
opening up our Great West, and
from that time Canada advanced by
leaps and bounds.
"The United States, by the McKin
ley tariff, added brick upon brick to
her wall against us, but Canada prospered more and more. She was beginning to find herself. Then came
the Dingley tariff, which crowned
the United States tariff wall with
broken glass bottles and barbed
wire, and then Canada quite found
herself.
"Hear what Senator Beveridge,
chief mouthpiece of the administration at Washington in the reciprocity
matter, says about this policy of his
government:
" 'Not the Bourbons of France in
the time of Louis XVI, not the terms
of England in the period of George
III, ever insisted on a policy so blind,
so foolish and so ruinous as that so-
called statesmanship which, instead
of fostering a purchasing market in
Canada is making Canada a manufacturing competitor.'
"And hear Senator Beveridge
again:
" 'There must be reciprocity with
Canada. Our tariff with the rest of
the world does not apply to our
northern neighbor. That policy already has driven American manufacturers across the Canadian borders,
built vast plants with American capital on Canadian soil, employing Canadian workmen to supply the trade.
That capital should be kept at home
to employ American worklngmen to
supply the Canadian demand. We
should ndmlt. Canadian wood pulp
and paper free In return for Canada
admitting our agricultural Implements, our engines, pi,nips and other
machinery, too. We should admit
Canadian lumber to American planing mills in return for Canada freely
admitting tlie other American products. We should have a special tariff arrangement with this intimate
neighbor and natural customer, This
would mean millions of dollars of
profit every year to American industry. Reciprocity would mean vast
increases In Canada's purchases from
lis.'
"As I said twenty years ago In
speaking of ibis same subject of rec-
Iproclty, it is not necessary that a
small boy should be a school boy to
know what all this means. And if
Indiana, which Is a second-rate state,
is to gain millions by reciprocity,
what millions must the great manufacturing Btates gain?    And who will
Who else?
Mr.   Fielding's  \ie«'s
"The other day Mr. Fielding, in a
cable message to the Canadian High
Commissioner  in  London,   said  that
for fifty years the people of Canada
and both of its political parties had
wished  for reciprocity.    That    was
true of the sixties and seventies, but
this has not since been true.    'For
the past twenty years we have heard
only an occasional whine from some
survivor of Canada's dark age.    We
have heard nothing for many years
back of commercial union, reciprocity and all those fads    which    grew
from  empty  pockets.     The     Liberal
party   came  into     power     eighteen
years      ago.        The      tariff      was
accepted by them as a national need.
It   was improved  in  many  ways and
with  great  intelligence  and  preference was given to Great Britain, and
our whole country applauded    and
was content.    Everybody felt secure
and   the   country   advanced   prodigiously.    Thousands of miles of railway were built and our ocean steamships  increased   by  hundreds.     Our
commerce and manufactures reached
a  height never before dreamed  of.
The  government,  and     particularly
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. Fielding,
had the respect and confidence and
good will of everybody, even of their
political opponents.
"Now, out of a clear sky comes
Mr. Fielding, plunging like Icarus
into darkness and threatening to
take us all with him. Was there
ever such an exhibition of crawling
and cringing as Canada's representatives have just now given us at
Washington? We have heard much
of the dignified attitude of our government on the subject of reciprocity
which was only assumed after repeated snubs. We have been told
that if there was anything more to
be said about reciproctiy it must be
said at Ottawa, but the very first
signal from Washington we have
seen Canada's representatives hurrying there, and without consultation
with one of our business interests,
and apparently without consultation
with their colleagues, hastily assenting to terms vitally affecting our
vast and complicated trade and commerce, and perhaps, invalidating our
political future. I refuse to believe
that our honoured Premier was a
willing party to what has been done.
But whether he was or was not, the
certain consequences to the country
are so serious as to quite overshadow all personal considerations, and
these consequences should be averted somehow. The well-being of the
country and its self-respect are at
stake, and the shameful thing that is
proposed is surely against the wishes
of four-fifths of its people, and I
doubt if it would, if clearly understood, find a dozen supporters in the
Dominion.. It is .perhaps, not possible to make a tariff quite satisfactory to every community, every interest, and every individual, but,
rightly considered, our tariff has
come pretty near to this.
Faimcrs' Demands
"Some of the farmers in the Canadian Northwest want reciprocity in
the hope that it will bring them better prices for wheat and cheaper
agricultural implements. It will do
neither to any appreciable extent.
They should remember that our tariff way has made a home market
which has made them prospjerous.
They have onl yto compare our exports of wheat and flour to foreign
markets with our total production of
wheat to read the extent and value
of this home market. And as regards agricultural implements, they
have only to compare the prices they
have to pay with the prices paid Immediately south of the boundary to
lo see that in most cases the American manufacturer pays the duty and
the extra freight and he can do this
because the cost at his works is only
a fraction of what the farmers pay,
nearly all of the rest going to his
profit nnd io the middleman. Reducing Hie tariff will not cheapen
the Implements, it will only add to
the American manufacturers' profit,
lint if a comparison is made with the
selling prices south of the boundary,
cash prices should be compared with
cash and not casli with credit prices.
"We are told that some farmers
in the Maritime Provinces favor reciprocity in tlie expectancy that it will
bring better prices for their potatoes and apples. All tlie possible gain
in that way may easily be known by
looking at the prevailing prices of
these things in the New
States. It is not much, and our
neighbors expect reciprocity to bring
prices down. On tbe other hand,
there are easily reached markets for
these things.    There are the farmers
of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick,
who may, with a little effort, secure
twice as much as they are now getting for their potatoes and apples
and at the same time quadruple the
demand by reducing their prices one-
half to the consumer. Take Cuba,
for instance, wliere a barrel of potatoes, yielding the Canadian farmer
seventy-five cents, reaches the consumers at seven dollars. Also with
apples. The Canadian trade commissioner at Havana will verify this
statement. Our farmers count on
exporting potatoes and apples to the
United States, while these same
things are exported from the United
States, to Cuba and elsewhere. Ontario suffered in her butter, eggs,
cheese and such things until the
Dingley tariff compelled a turn to
other markets, which proved to be
more profitable.
Better Without Reciprocity
"Aside from the fisheries, of
which I do not know enough to
speak, I do not believe that there is
any industry anywhere in Canada
that cannot find a way to be better off
without reciprocity than with It, and
with many industries the question is
a vital one. And even with our codfish, judging from the prices to
consumers in the west, it may well
be that we are, as with potatoes and
apples, overlooking what might
easily be made our very best market. Let us not turn away with the
idea that if we make a mistake in
this matter of reciprocity we shall
be able to correct it at pleasure. It
may not be permitted us to do so.
It should be remembered that there
are such things as vested interests
of nations, real or alleged and terribly binding upon the weaker party.
"When Mr. Hill has extended his
seven or eight lines of railway into
the Canadian northwest—lines which
have for some years been resting
their noses on the boundary line
waiting for reciprocity, or something
of the kind, to warrant them in
crossing, and when other American
channels of trade have been established, affecting our territory, and
when the American millers have
tasted our wheat and the American
manufacturers have got hold of our
markets, Is It probable that we shall
be permitted to recede? Not a bit
of it. We are making the bed to He
in and die in.    Sincerely yours,
"W.  C. VAN HORNE."
Before putting on patent leather
shoes, always rub the surface of the
vamp briskly with the palm of the
hand, thus softening the shoe and
rendering it less liable to crack.
Many patent boots "crackle" all over
the first time they are worn, when
this precaution might prevent the
accident. Another method is the
warming of the shoe, and It must
always be remembered that shiny
shoes are never kept in cold places.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
G. T. P. LOCOMOTIVES
The Company is Building the Engines
for Passenger Service in
the West
Large Type Is Being Provided With
All the Latest Improvements Included
The Grand Trunk Pacific is building for its passenger service, engines
for the Pacific coast end of Its line
at the present time. The Baldwin
Locomotive Works have an order for
five of the type to be used and the
last copy of the Railway and Marine
AVorld states that six of that type
are being built at tbe company's
works in .Montreal, which would Indicate that eleven are under order.
The locomotives will weigh about
345,000 pounds with the tender
when  ready, or over  170 tons.
The Railway and Marine World,
referring  to  the  locomotives,  says:
During the past few years the
weights of express passenger trains
have increased to such an extent that
it has become necessary, on many
roads, to employ six-coupled locomotives in high-speed service. For
work of this character, either the
ten-wheeled or Pacific type is usually selected. With the same maximum load per driving wheel, the Pacific type shows no superiority over
the ten-wheeled type, as far as adhesion weight is concerned; and hence
at slow speeds the tractive force developed by the two classes should be
approximately the same. The Pacific
type, however, possesses greater boiler capactiy, and this Is a distinct advantage In high speed work, or
wliere long grades must be negotiated.
The Baldwin Locomotive Works
has recently built five Pacific locomotives for the Grand Trunk. They
are known as class P according to
the railway company's classification.
The tractive force exerted is 31,500
pounds, and with 131,500 pounds on
driving wheels, the ratio of adhesion
is 4.15. They were built in accordance with drawings and specifications furnished by the Grand Trunk
Railway.
The boiler used in this design is
of the extended wagon type with
wide firebox. The longitudinal
seams are sextuple riveted and welded at the ends. The side water legs
of the firebox slope inward as they
rise; the staying is radial, and the
front end of the crown is supported
on four rows of expansion links. The
firedoor opening is formed by flanging both sheets outwardly, and uniting them with a sleeve. The master
mechanic's standard front end is
used, ,with a short extension and
tapered stack. The furnace contains
a brick arch, supported on four water tubes, each three inches in diameter.
The steam distribution is controlled by balanced slide valves,
driven by Stephenson link motion.
The rockers are placed between the
first and second pairs of driving
wheels, immediately in the rear of
the links; and each rocker is connected to the corresponding link by
a short transmission bar. The valve
rods are necessarily long and are
supported by the guide yoke. This
plan of motion dispenses with heavy
transmission bars, such as are necessary when the links and rockers
are placed on opposite sides of a
driving axle.
The frames are of cast steel, with
rear sections of forged iron. For a
locomotive of this size, the main
frames are comparatively narrow,
their uniform width being four
inches. Each frame is cast in one
piece with a single front rail, to
which the cylinders are bolted. The
rear sections are two inches wide by
twelve Inches deep, and ore arranged
to accommodate the trailing truck,
which is of the radial type with outside journals.
The driving springs are underhung, and are equalized with tlie
trailing springs.
All truck wheels under the locomotive and tender are steel tired,
and were manufactured by the
Standard Steel Works Company. The
trailing truck wheels have cast steel
centres, while the front engine
truck wheels and the tender wheels
have cast iron centres. The Mansell
type of fastening is used in ail cases.
The tender frame is composed of
ten-Inch steel channels and the
trucks are of the arch bar type, with
cast steel bolsters. The tank has a
water bottom, and provision is made
for carrying 7,000 gallons of water
and ten tons of coal.
These locomotives, although not
of exceptional size, are the first Pacific types shipped to Canada by the
builders,,  and are therefore of con
siderable interest. The principal dimensions are as follows:

time, yet without  realizing the fact
that they are working.
The game can be played any place
and the grounds are not limited to
any certain measurement. In a gymnasium a volley ball is stretched
across the middle of the floor ad
the players are evenly divided on
each side. The ball used is the lightest size voley ball with a skin cover.
Service starts from the back line and
the ball is knocked over the net into
the opposing territory. The object
is to return the ball before It hits
the floor or before it has taken more
than one bounce. Each player, however, Is entitled to one bounce of the
ball before It Is returned.
CHAMPION TENNIS PLAYER
By the Invention of a new gymnasium game, "Bounce Ball," Dr. E. W.
White, physical director at Illinois
Athletic Club, claims to have solved
the problem of exercise for out-of-
eoudition business men. The game
resembles volley ball In that the
ball used is the same and a similar
net is used, but "bounce ball" has
the faculty of making staid business
men laugh and perspire at the same
"Bernie" Schwengers, of Victoria,
has been pronounced the champion
tennis player of the northwest by
the ranking committee. Last fall,
before a large crowd of enthusiasts,
he defeated Capt. Foulkes, who holds
the Canadian title, by a decisive
margin. In view of this record
there are many in favor of sending
the Victorian east this summer to
compete for the highest honor to be
obtained in the Dominion in this line
of sport.
Of course his chances of success
cannot altogether be rated on his
showing against Foulkes In the
match referred to because the champion was not at his best. That is
admitted. Still Schwengers so far
outclassed Foulkes, so palpably had
him beaten in every department, that
there is ground for the belief that,
providing he is playing in as good
form this season and that no extraordinary phenomena] performers
spring up in the east, he would be
able to bring back the title.
If tlie proposition is taken up seriously it is probable that an effort
will be made to find Schwengers a
suitable partner in order that he
would be' able to participate in the
men's doubles in the eastern tournaments. J. Cambie, of Vancouver,
has been mentioned in this connection. He was playing a strong game
last summer, and, with Schwengers
in Spokane made a good showing.

Montague Holbein, who has several times almost accomplished the
swimming of the English Channel,
will make one last effort this summer. He has commenced to learn a
new leg stroke by which he not only
hopes to increase his pace, but also
to lessen the strain on his stamina.
It is called the "Northern kick," and
offers an absolute minimum of resistance to the water when the legs
are being drawn into a position for
a kicking. Its motion increases the
speed and there is not nearly the
same fatigue resulting.

INITIATIVE  SYSTEM
Areicle iu Contemporary Review, Condemns the Method Now
Popular
In Conjunction With Referendum It
Is Being Used in Many
States of Union
Mr. Frank Foxcroft, writing from
Boston, Mass., contributes to tlie
Contemporary Review an article
strongly condemnatory of what he
calls the Initiative-Referendum in
the United States. It has been adopted partly because the Americans are
a people in a hurry, and partly because bitter experience has shown
people in several states that, no matter what care they take in electing
representatives, the great moneyed
interests can always buy them up,
but no multi-millionaire can buy
the massed voice of the whole people.
The Initiative-Referendum has
been adopted in eight states—South
Dakota, Utah, Oregon, Nevada, Montana, Oklahoma, Missouri and
Maine. These have adopted constitutional provisions for a referendum,
while a ninth state, North Dakota,
is on its way to enactment. In
Utah the system has not yet been
put in operation. In Nevada there
has also been a hitch, and in Montana the system has not yet been
subjected to a practical test. Therefore, South Dakota and Oregon are
the only two states in which the
practical working of the Initiative-
Referendum can be studied. In
Soutli Dakota any petition signed by
5 per cent of the electors is sufficient to set the Initiative-Referendum in motion. In Oregon a constitutional amendment can be carried
in four months, whereas formerly it
took four years. The system, as described by Mr. Foxcroft, seems about
as crazy as any ever devised by the
wit of man. On the same ballot
paper by which the elector votes for
candidates for a large number of
offices he must at the same time
vote for any number of new laws or
amendments to laws which are submitted to the people. In Oregon in
1910 the luckless elector had submitted to him a list of thirty-seven
candidates for office and thirty-
two new laws. Arguments for and
against pending laws are distributed
free of cost to the electors. By this
system anyone who gets from 5 per
cent to 10 per cent of the electors
to propose any bill, no matter how
wildcat it may be, can have that bill
passed into law by a single majority of the people without any amendment, preliminary debate, or consideration by committee. It is not necessary for more than half the electors on the rolls to vote for any
measure as long as the majority of
those actually voting record their
votes in favor of the bill. As a
rule only half, or sometimes only a
fifth, of tlie electors who vote for the
candidates take the trouble to vote
for the measures proposed. Therefore, it is quite possible for any law
to be proposed by 5 per cent of the
electors on the register and carried
by a mass vote at w'hich 70 per cent
of the electors never record an opinion. Mr. Foxcroft thanks Heaven
that, there is no prospect of the
Initiative-Referendum being submitted to national legislation.

prairie of Manitoba, from whence
they came.

LAST  YEAR
REAL ESTATE  OWNERS IN
Western   Canada
MADE
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures
obtainable, over One Hundred Million Dolars was made by real estate
owners in growing cities and towns
of Western Canada last year. This
vast wealth was exclusive of improvements and represented actual
increase in land values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg Free  Press prove that in'
eight Western Canadian Cities tbe
value of land alone—not counting
improvements—increased 562 per
cent for the last five years—an annual increase of 112 per cent for
eacli city during the last five years.
These figures indicate that investments in live, growing cities in Western Canada are as safe and sure as
an Investment can be, and that 100
per cent profit each year Is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THEY   WILL   UNDOUBTEDLY
MAKE $100,000,000 MORE
You have an oportunlty now to
participate in these immense profits
by being one of the original purchasers of town lots in'the Grand
Trunk Pacific addition to the fast
growing Western Canadian cities,
otherwise known as
GRAND    TRUNK    PACIFIC    RAIL-
WAV DIVISION POINTS
WATROUS,   MELVILLE,   WAIN-
WRIGHT, BIGGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast, growing Division Points and in the town-
site of Tofield an opportunity for the
investor to share in the large profits
that'are sure to accrue as a result
of the rapid and substantial growth
that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division Points and well located
cities and towns in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not
offer townsltes or additions so located as to make investments In them
of questionable value. The object In
selling these lots at the low priceB
at which they are offered Is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which the Grand Trunk
Pacific will derive vastly more benefit than  from the sale of lots.
Now is the time to buy. Choice
lots range from $100 upwards on
easy payments of 10 per cent cash
and 10 per cent a month. You make
your purchase direct and secure title
from the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company. Write for literature
and make your selection    while   the
prices  are  extremely  low  and     the
possibilities unlimited.    Address
