Time
At the council meeting last evening the city engineer reported upon
the question of a water supply on
Ninth avenue. He had found that
there were fifty dwellings that could
be served from a six-Inch main If
2,000 fet of Inch and a half pipe were
laid. This would cost about $400
and if all were connected up a revenue of $40 a month would be derived.
He further reported upon the different position he recommended for
the twenty fire hydrants. He stated
that connection by hydrants on less
than four-inch pipes was of little advantage as the pressure was too
small to be of effective service ln a
fire.
He advised another six inch main
in the alle> between Second and
Third avenues which would become
part of the permanent water distribution system.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know if it
were necessary to draw the attention
of the city engineer through the
council before any additional water
supply was given. He thought
wherever a revenue was to be derived
a supply should be given. Over Hays
creek ther would be a large number
of connections if the water were supplied. He thought every part of the
city where a revenue could be de-
irved had a right to the water supply. He thought the officials might
well keep on the lookout for services
to be put In.
He also noticed that there was no
provision for a hydrant near the sash
and door factory which had been
recommended.
Aid. Pattullo said every part of
the city that had asked for water
with the exception of Ninth avenue
had got a water supply. At the pres
ent time the officials could not
reasonably be expected to be engaged
finding places where water pipes
were to be put in. The engineer's
department had done a lot of work.
With the demands at present upon
the finances of the city they were not

Fernie Byelection
. .Tbe nomination for the election in
Fernie will take place October 21,
and if an election is necessary it will
be held October 22. It is generully
believed that Fernie will return the
new minister unopposed.
The New Minister
The taking into the cabinet of Mr.
Ross will come as no surprise, as
he has been looked upon as one of
the most likely to be called upon to
accept office. He has been a member of the legislature continuously
ever since the introduction of party
lines in this province. In his support of the McBride Government he
has been a most consistent follower
being party whip ever since the elevation of Hon. Thomas Taylor to the
cabinet. He is a ready speaker and
an able debater both In the house
and on the platform.
As chairman of the private bills
committee of the House, he showed
.splendid executive ability and won
honor among the members of both
sides of the House, the position being one of the most exacting among
the duties of the House. He is very
popular in the legislature and outside
of It, being known as "Billy" to all
his  friends.
William Roderick Ross, M.A., K.
C, is a son of Donald Ross and
Annie MacKenzie, both Scotch. He
was born in March 29, 1869, at Fort
Chipewyan, Athabaska. His father's
family had been employed by the
Hudson Bay  Company for two gen
erations back. He was educated at
St. John's College, Winnipeg, where
he took his degrees of B.A. and M.A.
He was married on October 5, 1892,
to Miss Leila Young, and they have
five children. He Is vice-president of
the Northern Coal & Coke Company,
Ltd. In 1903 he was elected as a
Conservative for the Fernie riding
for the provincial assembly, and was
re-elected In 1907 and 1909.
President of Council
A. E. McPhilllps, K.C., who has
been given the portfolio of president
of the council, which carries no
salary, is not new to the work of the
cabinet. He was attorney-general in
the first cabinet formed by Premier
McBride, but on an appeal to the
country he was defeated in Victoria.
Later he contested the Islands successfully against T. to. Paterson,
now Lieutenant-Governor, and has
sat ever since for that constituency.
Re was born at Richmond Hill,
County of York, Ont., In 1861, being
the son of George McPhillips, D.L.S
C.E., and was educated at Manitoba
college.     He   studied   law   and   was
called to the Manitoba bar in 1882,
and the British Columbia bar (i i
1891, He wears c j medal and clasp
of 188"], having served through the
Northwest rebellion as lieutenant in
the 90th Rifles. Before tiie introd te-
tion of party lines in the province he
served in the legislature, being elected in 1898 and again in. 1900. He
is a very strong Roman Catholic. His
wife is a daughter of the late Hon.
A. E. B. Davie.
Completes Cabinet
The taking into the cabinet of
these two ministers completes the
cabinet of Hon. Mr. McBride.
The transfer of Ron. Price Ellison
to the finance department will be
popular as Mr. Ellison is regarded as
an eminently safe man. He has had
occasion to deal in '..trge projects
during his residence in the province
and has the confidence of the money
interests. The department of agriculture is one also In which he is
very deeply interested, being one of
the largest ranchers In the province.
He has lived in British Columbia
since 1876 and has taken a deep interest in public affairs from the first.

MISREPRESENTING THE GOVERNMENT'S ACTION
Through the Government-Agent
here the Provincial Government has
served formal notice up in the city
that under section 22 of the Act of
Incorporation any further advances
to the city for works provided for
under agreement will cease. In so
doing the Government at Victoria is
but carrying out the letter and the
spirit of the Act. The section in question reads as follows: —
22. Whereas, certain moneys
have already been dispensed and
are yet to be disbursed by the
Government in necessary imtiii-
clpal work on the territory embraced in sold city, upon the
understanding that the city,
when incorporated, would repay
the same not later than the first
(lay of October, 1010, it is hereby declared that the said advances constitute a debt due
from said city to the Government payable "«t later than snid
date, with interest thereon at
four per cent from the (Into
said advances were made until
paid. The council of the city is
hereby empowered to pass a bylaw for the issue of debentures
sufficient when sold to repay
said advances and interest. The
said bylaw shall not be submitted to the electors of tbe city
for approval.

lias pursued Is a regular one, and

choice but to act upon as it did.

FINANCIAL  STATEMENT
Aid.    Hilditch    Wants    Information
Which He is Told is Forthcoming
At the council meeting last evening, Aid. Hilditch asked that the
heads of each departmenl in the city
should bring in a statement, of the
expenses and receipts. In this he
would like to have the capital expense In a separate list. The receipts
should be Included.
Aid Mobley agreed with this. The
aldermen had not let the business
get away from them. He had a general Idea In his own department but
a detailed statement would be valuable.
Aid. Pattullo said that the officials'
had already begun on that work.
Aid. Hildltch said that the request
he had was somewhat different.
It was after some discussion allowed to stand over as Aid. Pattullo
said he had taken steps to have the
statements prepared.

BODY FOUND
Robert Carlisle, of Vancouver, Probably Committed Suicide
(Special to The Journal)
Victoria, Oct. 11.—The party decomposed body of Robert Carlistle,
of Vancouver, was found on Sunday
near 17-mile post on the line of the
E. & N. railway. It Is believed to
have been a case of suicide. A rifle
with muzzle pointing toward the
head was found lying near the body.
time like this to represent the situation other than in its true light.
This action on the part of the
Government can have no effect upon
the financial situation. For selfish
reasons there has been a tendency
in some quarters to make it appear
as a move that could be Interpreted
as lack of confidence on the part of
the Government in the civic administration. The action on the part of
the Government can have no such interpretation put upon it. The administration at Victoria is bound by
the laws, of the province just as
much as any private Individual is
bound. In the course it has pursued
It has simply complied with the
statutes passed by the legislature.
The Government of Premier McBride has undoubtedly the deepest
sympathy with this city in Its efforts
to grapple with questions that are
exceedingly large. It is known that
the Premier himself takes the deepest interest in this place. When t
whole of the earlier history of J , ince
Rupert is made known it will be
found that the hand of Hon. Mr. McBride played a most important part
in ensuring a great seaport here and
frustrating moves that might have
resulted in holding this place back.
He is quite as solicitous as to the
future of Prince Rupert as he is regarding any southern city. The policy
of the Premier it will be found is
not one of centralizing commerce at
any one port or any centre. He is Interested in seeing the widest development in all parts of his native
province.
If the people of this city will but
consider for a moment the situation
as it now exists they will realize that
the cutitng off of further advances
is but a business proposition that
was provided for nearly a year ago.
When it became necessary that
there should be money available for
pressing works in this city upon
which the council could begin work
as soon as it came into power the
Government at Victoria made provision for advancing it at the low rate
of four per cent. It was also provided that ln order to provide the
means for returning this money any
bylaw with that object in force
should not require to be assented to
by the ratepayers as in the ordinary
course. As this move was only Intended as a temporary arrangement
to meet, a peculiar condition it was
provided that it should not be continued indefinitely. October first was
the date fixed for the close of this
method of raising funds without the
consent of the electors. When October 1 arrived the Government acted
according to arrangement and in
compliance with the statutes.
The method of thus obtaining
money was a simple one and It is
a pity the necessary amount for the
electric lighting was not so secured
before the expiration of the time allowed. Unfortunately the council
was unable to estimate exactly what
would be required for the lighting
plant and put off the date of drawing on the Government as long as
possible. They were apparently not
fully advised  regarding    their legal
powers in the matter and the time
went by.
No delay should result in consequence, however, as the money has
been readily advanced by the Bank
of Commerce and at most a small
difference in interest is all that will
be lost, the bank charging six per
cent on all money advanced while
the Government charged four per
cent. On the other hand ;! e bank
will be charging interest only on the
amount advanced from ''me to lime
to meet the cost of the plant, while
in the case of the Government it
would have been necessary under
the statute to have irawn al that
it was estimated the planl would
cost before October 1 so it would
have probably amounted to as riuch
as by dealing with  the bank.
The great advantage to have been
gained was in preventing delay in
passing the bylaw which would not
have required fhe approval of the
electors had the government funds
been drawn on.
There is nothing to be gained by
misrepresenting the situation, ho'v-
ever. The money is available. The
credit of the city is apparently all
right, the Government has acted In
good faith In carrying on' what it |
agreed to do and there should be no I
loss of time as a result of the altered condition of affairs.
W lien Prince Rupert peopl» learn I
to pull together for the advantage of
the city the place will ™n ahead that
much faster. No advantage is to be
gained by hampering the cr uncil in
its work.
There was quite an audience present at the council meeting last evening, no doubt due to an anxiety on
the part of the citzens to learn how
the street, work was to be arranged
for in view of the report that had
been circulated that the Bank of
Montreal had expressed its readiness
to advance another $90,000 for work
in section one.
The expected discussion in open
council seemed likely to pass until
Aid. Pattullo introduced a bylaw to
provide for the issuing of debentures
to raise the necessary money to put
in the electric lighting. In introducing the bylaw he took occasion
to express his regret, that there had
not. been more harmony among the
citizens with respect to the conduct
of civic affairs. It was not to be
wondered at perhaps as they could
not expect "the leopard to change
his spots, tiie Ethopian hist skin, or
the skunk his stink,". The only way
to accomplish the end was to kill the
skunk.
Aid. Pattullo added that Mr.
Christie of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce had expressed the willingness o." his bank to finance this pro-
po ,on, advancing the money necessary.
Ud. Lynch said in view of the fact
th the linarce committee was showing itself able to get money he
thought work should go along on
Third avenue. He thought they
might call for tenders for the work
now on Third avenue.
His     orship recalled that he had
stated whf i the bank had decided to
make the move it did a few days ago
that there was no need of alarm. He
j had   felt  sure   ihe  money  would   be
j forthcoming.     He  would  like  to re-
| mind  the citizens thai  this    council
i had been elected to carry on the affairs of the city.    The council would
continue  to do so and  it  would  be
better to allow them to do so.     He
said this in view of a move that had

OPPOSED TO JAPAN
Feeling Now in London Against the Renewal of the
Alliance.
Many  Points  That   Are  Objected   to
by British Interests in Trade
Mutter
(Special to The Journal)
London, Oct. 11.—There has been
adverse criticism as a result of the
report that the Anglo-Japanese alliance will be renewed at the end of
Its present term. There Is still live
years unexpired and in that time
there will be many representations
to the foreign office against the continuance of the arrangements.
Already the China association—a
powerful politico-commercial organization of Britisli merchants and ex-
officials in London and the Chinese
ports, has voiced the white man's objections to a treaty with the Japanese and a strong protest against the
aggressiveness of tbe latter ln Korea,
the misappropriation of British trade
marks, the repudiation of contracts,
after samples have been copied In
Japan, and general sllpperiness In
commercial transactions.
Moreover Britishers in the east
are angry that the safeguarding of
British Interests in Chinese waters
should have been left almost entire
ly to the Japanese fleet, notwithstanding the conviction of the Australians that the Japanese have eyes
on their territory for future colonization.
The present treaty was concluded
just five years ago, for ten years,
succeeding and extending the former
treaty of 1902. At first It wns limited to China and Korea, but now It
covers all "the regions of eastern
Asia and India." Moreover, the
original trenty confined mutual assistance to a conflict witli a comblna- j
tion of powers, whereas the treaty
today provides for such unity In the
event of nggresslve action wherever c
arising on the part of any power or
powers."
Japan   was  given   a  free  hand   In'
Korea, and England's right In India
was similarly outlined with such dis-'
tlnctness as to pledge Japanese assistance In  case  of a  frontier con-!
flict with another power.    But since
then   the  annexation   of   Korea  and!
the   Japanese   agreemnt   with   Rus-|
sia have altered the situation, so that t
if the main principles of the Anglo j
Japanese alliance are continued after!
the treaty Is overhauled In  1915 It!
Is certain that there will be substan—
tlal modifications. And If the present
government remaalns In    power    In
England the alliance will be drafted '
witli greater safeguards, In view of
the      danger       of      entanglements
through the wide scope given to the
trenty   by   the   conservative   foreign
secretary, Lord Lansdowne.
It, is said that the reason for Lord

Lansdowne's arrangements was that
a secret agreement existed between
Kussia and Germany Involving results in the far east that England
could not view with equanimity.
That was the reason also for Lord
Lansdowne's refusal in the house of
lords at that time to publish the
communications, which woul 1 havo
revealed loo much of an alt.rmlng
character In International relations.
Since tlion the horizon has cleared
considerably, so that the critics of
the alliance may be partially satisfied, at any rate, by limitations of the

NATIONAL ARCHIVES
Nany Important Documents Were Lost
to the Nation in Previous
Years.
Greater   Care   is   Now   Exercised
Guunl  Manuscripts of
Value
There is a romantic article on
"The National Archives"—those
manuscripts of national history
which fill the record office in Chancery lane—in a recent issue of the
Quarterly Review. It gives one some
idea of the value of these documents
and of tiie care now taken of them as
compared witli the neglect of days
gone by.
"Visitors to the interesting museum erected on the site of the old
Rolls Chapel are able to view the
iron-bound chests and leather pouches which formed the primitive receptacles of priceless records," says
the writer. "There, too, they may
see specimens of ancient charters
and writs, under successive devices
of the royal seal, or bearing the sign-
manuals of well-instructed kings, together with tokens of a wealth of
state papers and historical autographs that could scarcely be matched in any other country.
Romance of the Archives
"The romance of the archives has
also an archaeological interest which
Is frequently demonstrated by English antiquaries. The ancient palaces of the kings of England were
naturally selected as the repositories
of records; and we are told that
these were as precious to our sovereigns as the relics and regalia beside which they were deposited.
"Closely connected with these ancient treasures of records were the
strongrooms in Westminster Abbey,
in the Temple Church and in the
Rolls Chapel itself, which has superseded all other repositories. From a
very early date this classic site,
commemorated by Matthew Paris,
and associated, after his time, with a
long succession of famous judges and
divines, was apparently destined to
be the lasting receptacle of the public records.
MSS. Which Were Lost
"The earliest custody of the public
records is marked by many strange
vicissitudes and many quaint devices
down to the year 1838, when the
sixty scattered record offices of the
metropolis were forced, by the pressure of public opinion, to yield up
their contents to the new repository
on tiie Rolls estate (in Chancery
Lane.)
"The documentary treasures of
which we are justly proud are, after
all, the fortunate survivors of a great
debacle. We have certainly good reasons for believing that the records
preserved to ns form by far the most
important portion of the entire
series; hut even the famous Chancery enrolments are incomplete. The
total loss that we have suffered in
respect of original instruments and
detached documents can scarcely be
estimated; and apparently no serious
attempt has ever been made to calculate the extent of the deficit in
individual series.
"It is true that foreign archives
have probably suffered more extensive damage than our own; but these
losses have been largely the outcome
of invasion or civil war, while ours
are chieHy due to the Inefficiency or
apathy of the official custodians. The
almost incredible recital of these
misdeeds may be perused in the reports of parliamentary committees
during the eighteenth century; and
the charges have been repeated by
modern antiquaries.
Heritage of the Ages
"Some of us will recall the brilliant passages in which the late Prof.
Maltland described those shameful
scenes; and a fairly comprehensive
sketch will he round in the most recent Btory or the archives. Painful
as tliis story is, it lias a moral Hint
must in- Impressed upon the public
consclt inc. Th,, heritage of (lie ages
must be closely guarded by its official trustees, for moth and rust
can corrupt even the treasure of
kings. Unfortunately the prerogative of the crown has for a long time
past been impaired in several Important particulars. During the
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries
legal records and state papers were
removed from official custody with
complete Impunity. The records of
the Assize Court throughout England have ben abandoned since the
reign or Edward IV to Inadequate
local custody, and the bulk of these
records have long since perished.
Even In the present day state documents are openly sold by booksellers
whose title the most zealous official
would scarcely venture to question.
Where MSS. Were Housed
"Such was the treatment of the
ancient archives of this country from
their earliest inception down to the
accession of Queen Victoria. There
primitive, but not insecure, custody
in royal palaces or churches had
been exchanged during the eighteenth century for emergency quarters In numerous defective repositories, where the ravages of hungry
vermin and the greed of ill-paid officials completed their destruction.
Here, moreover, the records were almost as Inaccessible to the public as
in the days when lions roared and
arms clashed within the Tower, or
when watchmen in coats of mail
stood on guard outside the Treasury
at  Winchester.
Change in Keeping the MSS.
"In his first report, presented in
the year after the passing of the Public Record Office Act of 1838, the
then deputy-keeper, Sir Francis Pal-
grave, describes his official premises
as consisting of certain chambers in
the old Rolls house, supplemented by
a stable and coach-house in the Rolls
yard, while the Rolls chapel Itself
served as a general repository. Fifteen years elapsed before the building of the great repository in Fetter
Lane was taken in hand. Since that
date the aggrandisement of the Rolls
office has kept pace with the vast
expansion of the civil service, and
the cost of the English record establishment during the last, ten years
has been proportionately greater
than that of similar institutions elsewhere.
"In all this a great transformation
has been effected, largely by the administrative ability of Sir Henry
Maxwell Lyte. We now possess a
fine approach to the imposing buildings which form a connected repository and official bureau. The museum displays itsi nstructive contents,
which have afforded a rich treat to
hundreds of visitors and students;
the corridors and searchrooms are
well lighted and heated; there is a
sense of cleanliness and centilation;
the shelves are filled with helpful
inventories; and many other conveniences have been added, including an
extension of hours, for which older
readers, at least, are profoundly
grateful."

Minister of Land of Victoria Succeeds
in Placing Britishers
The Hon. Hugh McKenzie, minister
of lands, Victoria, Australia, and Dr.
Edwood Mead, chairman of the IVc-
torian water supply commission of
the same state, have finished their
mission in Great Britain, which was
to bring under the notice of the British people the advantages which the
Victorian government offer in the irrigation settlements of the state.
Their mission has been a success.
About 2,000 men, mostly young, and
possessing a little capital, have determined to leave this country and
settle in Victoria, and devote their experience of intensive cultivation to
irrigation farming. As settlers ot
this class must represent at least a
capital of £200 each, £400,000 will
soon be transferred, with the skill
and experience behind it, to the development of Victoria.
Lord Goschen presided at a complimentary dinner to the delegation,
and Dr. Elwood Mead, in the course
of an able speech, pointed out that
the new settlers would bring to their
new environments saving habits and
an ambition to carve out in a new
country homes for themselves and
families. Closer settlement, he said,
had proved the turning point, in Victoria's agricultural progress. Large
farms could not make hay growing

bankers of the next," Dr. Mead predicted. With the development of Irrigation farming Victoria would

A bashful suitor at last summed
up enough courage to remark to the
young lady, "Mary, I've been striving hard for a long time to make you
care for me. Do you think I'm—
making any progress?"
"Well," said the young lady, "I
don't know whether you're making
any progress, but I'm sure if you
care to, you can hold your own."
The name of Devonport's new
cruiser is not one of the happiest in
our naval annals, although there are
few indeed that can rival it in point
ol antiquity, says the London Globe.
Four hundred years ago—in 1511, to
be exact—English shipping in the
North Seat suffered much annoyance
at the hands of one Andrew Barton,
who witli Andrew Wood was one of
the commanders of the fleet of
James IV of Scotland. These men
voyaged under letters of marque and
were remarkably impartial in their
attentions.
However, the government of the
day took no notice of their depredations and at last the Earl of Surrey took matters into his own hands,
fitted out two ships at his own expense and set his own sons—Lord
Edward and Lord Thomas Howard—
in command of them. Barton had
two ships with him, but they were
scattered by a storm. The same thing
happened to the Howards ships, but
in the end Lord Thomas fell in with
Barton himself and bis brother with
the other Scottish ship.
Stout fighters as the Scots were,
the result of the actions was to add
two ships to the navy of 1511, one
Barton's own ship, the Lion, of 120
tons, and the other the Jenny Perwin
of 70 tons. Barton himself was killed and the affair led to war and the
battle of Flodden. King Henry's
answer to James IV's complaints of
the attack on Barton was to the effect that "punishing pirates was
never held to be a breach of the
peace among princes."
Curiously enough another Lion
was taken from the Scots in 1547,
but she received such severe punishment at the hands of the Pansy that
she sank off Harwich before she
could be carried into port.
The first Lion actually built for
the navy dates from 1536. She was
a vessel of 140 tons, but carried no
fewer than 50 guns, two of brass
and 48 of iron, but it is doubtful if
any of them fired a shot of more than
twelve pounds weight. The heaviest
naval gun in use fifty years later
tired a shot of only 66 pounds, and
the Ark Royal, of 800 tons, flagship
In the Armada campaign, mounted
only four of these. During the next
two centuries we find all sorts of
variations on the name which Vic-
countess Clifden gave to Devonport's
cruiser recently.
There were "Red Lions," "White
Lions," "Golden Lions" "Rose
Lions," "Two Lions," and whole
broods of "Lion's Whelps," these last
frequently built in batches and numbered like the torpedo boats of today. Among these, however, one
particular "Golden Lian" stands preeminent. She was built In 1582, had
a tonnage of 500 and was manned
with a crew of 250 men, 30 being
gunners, 70 soldiers and 150 mariners.
Her armament consisted of 60
pieces of what in those days passed
for ordnance. These were four
"demicannon" the weight of the gun
being 4,000 pounds, and of its shot
30 >4 pounds; eight 4,500 pound
"culverins" firing a 17 Vi-pound shot,
15 "dem-culverlns," 3,400 pounds In
weight and tiring a 9,pound shot, and
nine 1,400-pound "sakers" with a
5-pound shot. These constituted the
"heavy armament." In addition
ther were eight "fowlers," 16 "fowler chambers," and one "falcon." The
longest ranging gun was the deml-
culverln, which was effective at 20
score paces.
The oGlden Lion Is often referred
lu without the gilding adjective, and
when she wns rebuilt In 1009 it was
officially discarded. She sailed with
Drake to Cadiz In 1587 to singe the
King of Spain's beard, much against
the Inclination of the skipper, one
William Borough, "a distinguished
navigator and hydrographer, but no
warrior." Drake's plans struck him
as pure madness and he did little
to further the operations.
The result was that Borough was
tried on board the Elizabeth Bona-
venture by a primitive court-martial,
and sentenced to "abide the pains of
death," but he outlived both the sentence and his quarrel with Drake and
commanded the Bonavolia against
the Armada. In that fight the Lion
was second flagship, having Lord
Thomas Howard as her commander.
It was a new Lion that fought ln
the battel off the North Foreland in
1C53.    Twenty years later her cap
tain was killed In the first battle of
the "Schooneveld." Under Captain
John Torpley she took part in the action with the French off Beachy
Head in 1690, which brought so
much contumely upon Torrington,
but the ship had the satisfaction of
sharing ln Russell's great victory at
Barfleur two years later. It is not
until 1745 that we again find a Lion
in action. This time, commanded
by Captain Piercy Brett, she endeavored to prevent the flight of the
Young Pretender from Scotland to
France, but the Lion came off decidedly second best in the encounter
and retired with 5 killed and 107
wounded, of whom seven died later.
In 1759 the Lion was present at
the taking of Guadeloupe, where her
captain, William Trelawney, was
wounded. Twenty years later, fighting under Byron off Grenada, she
had a narrow escape from capture.
Byron conducted the battle in any-
held by Mr. Watson for the section of
thing but a capable manner, although the ineptitude of the French
prevented It from being the crushing
defeat it ought to have been. The
Lion and two other ships were cut
off from the main body and Byron
in his official report expressed his
"great surprise" that "no ship of the
enemy was detached after the Lion."
The latest addition to the British
navy represents the third stage in
the development of the battleship-
cruiser, flrst embodied in the design
of the Clyde-built ships Indomitable
and Inflexible an dthe Elswick production Invincible. In these earlier
ships a vast stride was witnessed In
two essentials, and they were „ the
flrst cruisers to have the principle of
the "all-big-gun" ship—which was
inaugurated in the Dreadnought battleship—given to them.
In the mixed armament of preceding cruisers, the heaviest weapon
mounted was the 9.2 gun, seen in the
Shannon and sister ships; while no
greater speed than 22% knots had
been attempted. In the Invincible
class, which received the designation
of battleship-cruiser, because of the
great approach in offensive powers
made by those ships to the battleship
—the developments consisted of increasing the gun-power to eight 12
inch guns, and raising the speed to
25 knots. Japan and one or two
other powers had introduced the 12
inch gun in their latest cruisers, and
Britain here took the bold step of
equipping cruisers almost similarly
with the heaviest battleships.
Next came the Indefatigable type
—two of which are building on the

Clyde for the New Zealand and Australian governments. No increase
was made in the gun-power, except
that the eight 12 inch weapons will
be in length of 50 calibres instead
of 45, and this will mean an increase
of 30 per cent in destructive force.
The dimensions of the hull have also
been slightly increased, and the engine-power raised from 41,000 to
43,000 to attain a little more speed.
The greater length of hull also permitted a better distribution of the
guns on the en-echelon principle for
broadside firing.
In the two latest ships the Lion
and Princess Royal—an enormous
development has, however, been provided for in the matter of speed.
Hitherto the designed rate of 25
knots had been reckoned sufficient;
but here the advance was suddenly
made to 28 knots. A greatly Increased displacement and engine-
power was given, the former rising
from 17,250 tons in the Indomitable
and 18,750 in the Indefatigable class
to 26,350 tons; while the horsepower
was increased to 70,000 units. An
important    feature   about this aug
mentation of speed is to observe that
with a considerably smaller hull the
new cruisers are to have actuallj
greater propelling power than the
Lusitania and Mauretanla, as the following comparison shows:—

Lusitania..    ..785    38,000     68,000
Lion    700    26,350    70,000
The Mauretanla has developed
26.6 knots as her highest in seagoing experience, and the Lion Is
expected to exceed this under similar conditions by three knots per
hour. The estimated speed is 28
knots, but every vessel ln the British navy usually attains in practice
a speed one knot per hour In excess
of estimated standards.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
WILL  APPEAL CASE
Timber Selling Transaction may be Carried to the Highest
Court
Swift vs. David Judgment  Given by
Mr. Justice Clement Will Be
Taken to Privy Council
(Special to The Journal)
Vancouver, Oct. 7.—It is now stat.
ed that the next stage of the Swifl
i-s. David timber case will be in tb«
court of appeal of British Columbia,
where it will be carried by Mr. B. V.
Bodwell, K.C., counsel for the defend. Prom ther ln turn It will probably go to the supreme court of
Canada, and will wind up finally before the privy council in London.
Mr. E. P. Davis, K.C., will appear against the appeal on behalf of
the plaintiffs.
Below is the lull text of the reasons of the judgment given by Mr.
Justice Clement in the case, which is
of special interest to all having to
do with timber lands. His Lordship
awarded the plaintiffs $171,500 for
shortage of timber on claims sold by
Mr. Lester David to B. Swift and
associates in the Canadian Western
Lumber company.
The judgment is as follows:—
"The figures upon which my judgment is based are enclosed hereto
but some explanation of them and of
the general principles which I havd
laid down for myself in deciding in
this case s due to the parties. Under
the circumstances here I construe
'timber' as meaning what should be
included by a cruiser sent out by an
operating firm or company desirous
of ascertaining their available raw
material. The result of such a cruise
should be honestly set down as an
asset. The timber about which these
parties were contracting was entered as an asset in the company's
books to the extent in feet and
money set out, in the statement of
April 30, 1907, and attached to the
agreement sued on.
"The proper point of view, therefore, in my opinion, is not that of
the speculator in timber lands or the
optimistic seller, but of the actual
operator who looks to present conditions. Mr. Rankin, one of the plaintiffs' witnesses, put it fairly and correctly when he said: 'I considered
everything I could get on the mar-
.ket,' and in another place, 'a fair cutting estimate.' Acting on this principle I have included 'dead and
■down' as estimated by plaintiffs'
cruisers, and have also in one Instance allowed a large estimate of
shingle bolts because I believe and
find that the plaintiffs' cruisers have
in the main cruised with Intent to
arrive at a correct estimate of what
these plaintiffs could get on the market, and'it appears that 'dead and
down' and shingle bolls may to some
extent be profitably marketed. Piles
and poles I have not considered.
There Is no evidence that they can
be profitably marketed from these
lands and ii is besides practically impossible to reduce any of the estimates on this head to board measure.
"It will be seen by the annexed
Statement that I have rejected the estimates of defendants' cruisers. I
do so mainly for the reason that the
principle which I have adopted as
corerct was palpably Ignored. Mr.
Ilts, one of the defendants' witnesses,
testified that he cruised 'everything
there was on the ground' under a
specific direction to that effect from
Mr. Walker, who has charge of this
litigation for the defendant; Olts
'didn't cruise it to see what about
taking the ''mber out.' In short, he
and the other cruisers for defendants cruised without regard to the
two crucial tests, costs of logging
and market price; in other words,
without regard to present conditons.
In saying so, I do not wish to cast
reflections upon the competence or
honesty of defendants' cruisers. They
acted, I think, under instructions,
but the fact remains that the1'
cruised In such a way that their results are of very little use to me in
this case, however honestly #thelr
work for their employer was done.
Then again they adopted a system of
cross-verification which in its result
practically put them all in the same
boat, as showing identity of aim and
warrants the application of the
Vlrglllan maxim, as urged by Mr.
Davis, 'Ex uno disce omnes.'
"There Is a good deal 'of uncertainty, too, as to the areas actually
cruised by defendants' cruisers. They
had not the data which plaintiffs'
cruiser had. They cruised moreover
on a sixteen foot log basis, giving
larger results as Is generally admitted, when in fact there is practically
no such  log   In    British     Columbia
trade. I refer to these matters for
fear it might be thought that I consider them of no importance. They
are matters to be taken into account,
but in view of the general system
pursued as above outlined, they do
not bulk so large as they otherwise
might. "In the result, therefore, my
judgment as to the amount of timber upon the tracts In question here
is based upon the estimates of-the
plaintiffs' cruisers. Recogniizng that
the onus is on thep lalntiffs to satisfy
me affirmatively that there is a certain shortage I have had in view as
to each tract the point where I could
say I am satisfied that the timber on
th.s tract does not exceed so much.
It seems to me not unfair to debit
the plaintiffs with their highest
cruise in each case and that is what
I have done with something added to
make good measure. In some few
instances the figures appearing on
the estimate sheets put in at the
trial are modified by the evidence,
but on the whole I have taken percentage deductions with a large
grain of salt. I have not taken any
account of differences in the scales
which the various cruisers were in
the habit of using. Doyle's, Scrib-
ner's, B.C., etc., because I can find
nothing sufficiently tangible in the
evidence to warrant me in saying
that the work of cruisers Is appreciably affected thereby. In actual scaling of logs there Is, of course, a difference, not very clearly brought out
in evidence, but as the witnesses say
'cruising is a dilferent proposition'
and the scall variations in the different scales 'cut very little figure.'
"On the question of title, I debit
the plaintiffs with the timber on the
six disputed provincial licences. The
guarantee must be read as referring
to the fifty licences mentioned in the
statement of 30th of April, 1907, and
the defendant cannot on this record
be held responsible for the action of
the company in regard to these licenses after that date. As to other
disputes in reference to the ground
covered by the statement, I adopt the
lists put in by the plaintiffs, there
being really nothing to contradict
the evidence of Mr. R. J. McRae on
this point.
"I can find nothing in the evidence
to warrant a finding that the plaintiffs at any time accepted the proper
ties in dispute or any cruise or other
verification of them or any of them
as correct; or that they did anything
to work an estoppel.
"Nor can I accede lo Mr. Bodwell's
argument that lb■• just prop Win
which defendants agreed 'o pay in
case of a shortpgp, is to be arrived
at by assuming without evidence t.'.at
some assets ef th. company were ",c
eepted as wjrth the figure set cut in
the statement, leaving the timber
lands to be taV.en as acquired for
19 cents per thousand. With all
respect for the learned counsel, I
think the suggestion too fanciful for
serious consideration. In my opinon,
the language of the guarantee shows
with sufficient clearness that the defendant was to pay for any shortage
upon the various classes the value
per thousand respectively specified
in the statement. How one would
arrive at a just proportion if one or
more of the classes had overrun the
estimate does not arise here on the
facts for ther was, I find a shortage
of at least the amount mentioned in
the anneexd statements in respect of
each and every one of the specified
classes.
"The    plaintiffs   are   entitled
judgment with costs."

HUDSON BAY RIGHTS
to
That Canada has exclusive rights
in Hudson Bay Is now conceded b*
many people here, states a Washington, D.C., despatch. This view has
grown since the decision of The
Hague Tribunal has been more carefully scanned. The tribunal was asked to determine from what point the
three marine miles shall he measured
In the case of bays and creeks, and
the answer was that "in tiie case of
bays the three marine miles are to
be measured from a straight line
drawn across the body of water at
the place where it ceases to have the
configuration and characteristics of
a bay." At all other places the three
marine miles are to be measured following the sinuosities of the coast.
Light is thrown upon the meaning
of this decision by the subsequent
treatment of the larger bays on the
coast. The Zale des Chaleurs, for
Instance, ts declared to be a closed
bay, and the line is to be drawn from
the points where the bay ends, that
is, from two headlands at the mouth
of the bay. These headlands are
twenty or twenty-five miles apart.
Fortune Bay, In Newfoundland, is
also a closed bay. The entrance to
Fortune Bay from headland to headland Is thirty miles wide. Thus, notwithstanding the width of the entrance to the bay, the bay is recog-
niezd as exclusively British property.
The  entrance  to   Hudson   Bay   Is

Gravel a Day
Dawsonites now making the journey five miles from Dawson over the
Hunker boulevard to a point a mile
this side of Bear creek can now see
in the making the largest gold recovering machine ever designed, says
an exchange. Not in the history of
man, counting far back into the unfathomable darkness before the days
of Solomon when the gold f Ophir
enchanted the world, has there ever
been such a mammoth machine con-
clved or built by the hand of man to
recover the golden wealth scattered
in ages past in the secret pockets of
.Mother Earth.
The_ Canadian-Klondike Mining
company, Limited, is building the
giant dredge, and when it is finished
will have the honor of owning a boat
which will be the talk of the mining
world.
President and General Manager
Joseph W. Boyle has more than 100
men engaged on the construction,
rushing the work day and night.
When the darkness would have sway
the numerous electric arc lights
make it almost as light as day, and
the work progresses without a hitch.
At the rate the undertaking is being pushed along, the dredge should
be finished and receive the juice before the end of the season. The outlook now is that the big machine will
have ample time for a thorough test
before the closing of the dredging
season.
Mr. Boyle is enthusiastic over the
work. He is on the ground constantly.
Howard Brenner, the expert who
designed the machine in accordance
with the desires of the owners, is on
the ground directing the construction. He is one of the cleverest
dredge experts in the world, and was
sent from Marion, Orio, the home of
the builders, especially to assemble
the ship.
The dredge is to be known as,the
"Canadian." The name is taken from
the first part of the company's name.
Large metallic name plates are prepared to be placed on the side of the
house.
The cost of the dredge will run
between $300,000 and $400,000.
Tne freight on the machinery alone,
to say nothing of the penalties to
be added because of the enormous
size of many parts, will reach something like  $100,000.
The dredge will be driven with
powed from the new plant now being
installed on the north fork of the
Klondike by A. N. CI Treadgold. The
giant motors for the new dredge are
on the ground. No transformers are
to be used on the dredge, and every
wire going aboard the boat, will be
absolutely insulated, and the craft
thus fully protected  from fire risk.
The digging line will have a 300-
horsepower motor, and will be guaranteed to stand an overload of 50 per
cent. A 200-horsepower motor will
operate the ladder hoist. The total
capacity of the motors is 1,000 horsepower. The motors were designed
especially for this work by the General  Electric company.
The digging ladder and the stacking ladder have steam heating appar-

STREET  LIGHTING
The question of lighting on the
streets in section one seems to have
been very satisfactorily solved for
the present. The activity in connec
tion with the street work in consequence of which the contractors
keep the root fires blazing all night,
serves as a sufficient lighting for all
"ordinary" occasions.

EASIER MONEY MARKET
The members of the city council
seem to be getting away from some
of their disturbing financial situations. The banks at present seem
quite ready to advance money to the
city which is certainly gratifying.
The credit of Prince Rupert should
be good. There has been nothing to
impair it and the prospects are now
quite bright with respect to the coun
cil being able to prosecute Its street
work and other Improvements without difficulty.
The Bank of Montreal has announced that $250,000 is now available for street work In section one,
which is an advance of $90,000 over
that previously allowed. The Bank
of Commerce has also come forward
with $50,000 for the electric lighting project so that the Immediate
needs of the council'are provided for
in a financial way.
A settlement of the G.T.P. assessment now would put things in excellent shape.

PORTUGAL'S REVOLT
Events Which   Have Led   Up  to the
Present Unrest in
Portugal.
Republican Form of Government Has
Been Popular Fancy of
People
Events leading up to the present
revolution in Portugal probably had
their origin during the first half of
last century, although since almost
the Aiidlde Ages the spirit of revolt
seems to have been strongly implanted in the Portuguese nation.
Tiie dynasty belongs to the house of
Braganza of which the head is Dom
Miguel de Braganza. The father of
Horn Miguel was the late King
Miguel I, who in 1S28 seized the
throne from his neice, Queen Maria
II, and held the reins of power until
his death in 1834, when the crown
was restored to Queen Maria. Since
that date there have been numerous
rumors of rebellion with the object
of placing Dom Miguel in power, but
during later years little attention has
been paid to these.
The terrible tragedy which led to
the deaths of King Carlos and the
Crown Prince Luiz, by assassination
on February 1, 1908, was, prior
to the present revolution, the greatest outstanding event in the march
of the nation towards republican
government. The direct cause of
tills tragedy had its origin in the inability of either of the two regular
parties in Portuguese politics to form
an efficient government. For years
past there has been a struggle between the Regeneradors or Conservatives and the Progressistas or
Liberals. Time after time neither
party could secure a pronounced majority in parliament; first one and
then the other endeavoring to keep
control by the purchase of office
seekers, promises to whom were redeemed at the country's expense.
This political unrest, coupled with
the insecurity in which it was felt
that the throne rested while a pretender lived, seems to have prepared
the mind of the nation for a republican form of government which the
fiercer and more turbid spirits were
willing to effect at the cost even of
royal blood. But in connection with
the dual assassination a revolution
failed to follow, and King Manuel assumed the reins of power snatched
by death from the hands of his
father.'
Long Standing Move
The idea of a republic seems to
have been maturing for the past two
decades, for in 1893 an attempt was
made on the life of King Carlos as
he was driving through the streets
of iLsbon. In June, 1907, as a result
of riots in Lisbon, a number of people were killed, the authorities having to use armed force to repress a
demonstration hostile to the Premier
on his return from a visit to Oporto.
The latter months of 1907 saw almost continual turmoil with recurrent rioting. The power of either
political party almost ceased to exist
and Portugal was ruled by a dictatorship in which the predominant spirit
was Senor Franco. After numerous
minor iisings had bem put down the
police on January 23rd, 19C8; discovered a widespread plot to overthrow the monarchy and proclaim
Portugal a republic. The original intention was to assassinate Premier
Franco and depend upon the secret
republican and labor organizations,
armed with bombs and revolvers to
complete the work of revolution In
the streets. The police raided the
meeting place of the conspirators, j
and made a number of arrests, seizing quantities of bombs and other
weapons. Each succeeding day,
however, brought new evidences of j
the ramifications of the plot, which!
culminated In the assassination of t
King Carlos and the Crown Prince j
Luiz.
With the accession of the youthful
King Manuel to the throne, it was
confidently hoped that the reign of
unrest in Portugal would come to an
end. This hope seemed on the road
to fulfillment, for during the past
two years beyond sporadic outbreaks
of local nature there has been nothing to indicate that revolution would
come so suddenly upon the nation, j
The blow struck so quickly at the I
house of Braganza, resulting in the
deposition and flight of King Manuel
seems to have been the result of
mature deliberation and the spread
of disaffection among tlie army, a
process which probably took many
months, If not years. From present
indications, it looks as if the manifold ramifications of the present plot
which  apparently  has  been  carried
so successfully out, will never be revealed.
Royal Family
The reigning family of Portugal
belongs to what is known as the
house of Braganza. The ancestor of
the house was Alfonzo, the illigiti-
mate son of John I of Portugal, who
was created Count of Barcellos by
his father, and Duke of Braganza by
Alfonzo V. John I and Alfonzo V
were of the royal house of Avlz, so-
called because John was grand master of the Knights of St. Bennett of
Aviz. He himself was an illegitimate
son of King Pedro, of the house of
Burgandy, which had reigned in Portugal for nearly three hundred years.
The house of Aviz occupied the
throne for nearly two centuries when
it became extinct and in 1578 the
crown passed to King Philip I of
Spain, being retained by Spanish
sovereigns for sixty years. In 1640
the Portuguese rose in revolt against
foreign rulers and after a spirited
contest, succeeded in expelling the
Spaniards, whereupon the Duke of
Braganza who seemed to be the only
remaining representative of the previous reigning family, was chosen
king, and he ascended the throne as
John, or more properly Joao IV, who
has gone down into history as the
Restorer. From this monarch King
Manuel of Portugal is descended. In
1834, Maria II came to the throne,
and she subsequently married Fernando, Duke of Saxe, prince of Co-
bourg Gotha, so that the present
reigning family is properly described
genealogically as the house of Bra-
ganza-Cobourg. The historic friendship between England and Portugal
began in the reign of Joao IV.

WHALING IN NORTH
At Least One New Station to Be Opened
For This Part of
Ocean.
Controlling Company Will, it is Expected, Build at Naden Harbor Next Year
Prince Rupert promises to become
the centre of a considerable whaling
industry as the waters within easy
reach of the port abound in the mam'
mals to a far greater extent than do
the waters farther south. This port
will, it is acknowledged, become the
point for shipping of the finished
products from the whaling stations
and the source of supply to these
points which will mean a considerable addition to the business at the
port.
The operations of the Pacific
Whaling company in the north, especially on Queen Charlotte Islands,
has been attended with the greatest
success and the company will in consequence extend the scope of its operations in these waters. At present
they have but one station, that at
Rose Harbor, near the southern end
of Moresby Island. The intention is
now to build another at the northern
end of the Islands on Naden harbor.
The whales are reported to be quite
as plentiful in the waters off the
north end of the Queen Charlottes as
they are In the south, and the company does not Intend to lose an opportunity to get the very best out of
the Industry.
The company Intend, it is stated,
to give more attention to the waters
of this part of the coast in the search
for the returns that are to be derived from the whaling industry. In
the waters off this coast there are
more sperm whales met with in the
hunting of the mammals and as these
give very much larger profits than
the ordinary variety there is a double advantage in operating in the
neighborhood of the Queen Charlottes.
It is possible that there will be
further stations opened in the north
as well as this second one on Graham
Island. Licenses are held from the
Dominion Government for these ad
ditional stations and it is expected
that the company will begin work
upon them so that they will not endanger the licenses.
Five more whaling steamers are
to be built for the service of the Pacific waters by Christiana builders,
according to a programme being now
arranged. The five new whalers will
be similar in type to the William
Grant, largest of the fleet of five
steam whalers now in service from
the British Columbia stations. One,
possibly two, more whaling stations
are to be established in northern
British Columbia.
Officials of the Pacific Whaling
company when asked in Victoria regarding the proposed additions to
the fleet of whaling steamers, said
they had nothing to say in this regard at the present time.    It was too
It Is known here, however, that
steps looking to a station at Naden
Harbor have been taken.
It is understood that Capt. R. Balcom, brother of Capt. Sprott Balcom,
manager of the Pacific Whaling company, will be sent to Norway to superintend the construction of the
new fleet and arrange for the despatch of the vessels to these waters.
It Is probable that all will be shipped
in sections by Blue Funnel steamers
and put together on this side. The
steamer William Grant was shipped
in this manner by the Blue Funnel
liner Titan, arriving last March.
At present five steamers are In
service for the whaling company and
three stations are in use. The steamer Orion, the initial vessel secured
by the whaling company from Norway, is in operation from the Sechart
station, the Sebastian and St. Lawrence, are at work from the Kyuquot
station, and the Germania, bought
from a Norwegian company operating on the Chilian coast, and the new
William Grant, are operated from
the recently-established station at
Rose harbor on Kunghit Island at
the south of the Queen Charlottes.

LOSS OF A MILLION
Chinese Immigrants Used  Clever  Ruse
lor Passing Officials at
Vancouver.
Wholesale   Way   in   Which   "Mer-
chants" Were Admitted Into
the Country Is Exposed
A loss to the country of approximately a million dollars by the
evasion by the Chinese of payment of
the head tax on arrivals In Vancouver, appears to be the conclusion
which must be come to from the
evidence taken at the enquiry concerning the detained Chinese Immigrants. As this province was entitled to receive half of the $500 tax
if means a loss to British Columbia
of half that amount. Whether any
of this amount will be recovered Is
a moot point. As yet the law department has not had an opportunity
tc figure out this problem.
The present position of the enquiry has now been completed, the
representatives of the department
having Intimated that owing to the
sameness of the evidence they do not
deem it necessary to examine any
more, so that only nine of the total
bunch have faced the! nvestlgatlon.
It is anticipated that by tomorrow
the report on the enquiry will be
compiled, and it will then be submitted to the department.
The modus operandi was for the
Celestials to pass the officials as merchants, and thus escape payment of
the bead tax. It would appear from
the returns that twenty new Chinese
firms were entering business In Canada every month.
This state of affairs would seem
to have made the department sus-
pilcous that all was not as It should
be, and Mr. Foster, of the secret service department, was sent from Ottawa to look Into the matter. Obtaining the services of a Chinese In-
terpreter, they left the ordinary interpreter ai Vancouver and proceeded in Victoria to meet the Empress
of China, upon which tliere was reason to believe were a number of so-
called Chinese merchants, Tbe Interpreter mixed witli the immigrants,
telling them thai the ordinary official
could not come Hint trip, but that he
would attend 0 be business of heir
landing, lie was handed quite a
number uf letters of Introduction,
most of them being from one firm or
person In Hongkong, asking that the
merchants should be assisted
through the customs.
The owners of the letters all seemed to be ln possession of $150 ln
sovereigns, which they Informed him
was to show tbe officials, after which
it would be banded to the person assisting them to land for his personal
use.
These new arrivals were also In
possession of drafts ranging from
$500 to $1,200, which were to be
shown to tbe officials. One of Ihese,
drawn on a certain Chinese firm In
Vancouver, was shown lo the head
of  that  firm,  who  was asked  If  he
would cash it, but he declined, saying he hardly knew the person who
had drawn It and in any case it was
not drawn properly and was not Intended to be cashed. Such Is the
present position of affairs.
J. H. Senkler, president of the Liberal association, says although the
executive of the association had telegraphed to the government, asking
for the reinstatement of Mr. Bowell
as controller, and protesting against
the employment of Lew as interpreter instead of Yip On, it was certainly
not wished to prevent the enquiry,
and if there had been any crooked
work it must be brought to light and
the guilty persons punished. He believed Mr. Bowell to be an honest,
upright official. Though he might
have been duped by others, there
was no indication that he was culpable himself.
 o	
FINANCIAL ASPECT
(Continued from Page One)
been made to call a public meeting.
It would be better not to hamper
the council.
He had felt that there was no need
of alarm and this announcement by
the bank carried out the views he
then expressed.
His worship said that while the
manager of the bank stated that
there was $250,000 available now
for the street work, he felt safe in
saying that the whole amount would
be forthcoming to carry on the work
in section one. His words that there
was no need of alarm had come true.
Aid. Mclntyre seconded the motion
to call for tenders for the work on
Third avenue.
Aid. Hildltch expected that the city
would have to pay six per cent on
this $50,000 for electric lighting to
the bank. Such an undertaking was
not so great after all. The Bank of
Montreal had agreed to advance
$90,000 more for the council to work
upon. That would not go very far.
He thought it would be as wise to
let the motion stand relative to stopping work in the lower portion of
Second avenue. That was a portion
that required grading about as little
as any part of the city.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that this
motion of Aid. Lynch might, stand
over until the legal aspect of the
situation was gone into. He felt
that there was grave doubt as to
whether there could be a change effected. A contract having been let
and work started he believed that If
Ihe work was stopped an Injunction
could be taken out by any resident
to prevent the alteration.
Aid. Lynch wished to call attention to the fact that It would be a
loss to the city to transfer the contract. He also wished to take occasion to correct some impressions
which were sought to be created as
to there being nothing below Sixth
street. He could tell them that here
was the biggest mercantile business
in Hie city situated there with the
bigegst pay roll. There was also the
only hotel that met with all the requirements of the license commissioners in that section.
Aid. Hildltch said he referred to
the section below the junction of
First, Second and Third avenues.
There was not a store and not a hotel
in that part. He did not mean to
refer to the part below Sixth street.
Aid. Barrow advised caution in the
matter of rushing into expenditure.
He warned them to beware of the
practice because they got a little
money of rushing off to spend it.
Aid. Mclntyre lamented any move
that would remove the decorum that
should attend the deliberations of
the body. In explanation of why he
concurred in carrying on the work
there he said that then it was the
intention of having all of section one
graded. Now that the situation was
altered he favored a transfer ,of the
work to Third avenue. The engineer
estimated that the money available
in the change would do the work
from Eighth street to Fulton. This
was the heavier part of the work in
the avenue. While Mr. Watson was
getting $1.75 a yard for work below
the junction, it was estimated that
It would cost $3 a yard on Third avenue.
Aid. Pattullo said the legal position was not altered the least by the
Introduction of this money.
Aid. Mclntyre said it was changed
by $90,000.
Aid. Pattullo said this was the
alteration in the financial situation,
but not in the legal aspect. The financial aspect of it might allay the sensibilities of Aid. Mclntyre. The question of decorum he also referred to
and said he had had occasion some
time ago to insist upon certain aldermen conducting the debates ln a
decorous way..
His worship thought that the city
should proceed at once with the work
on  Third  avenue.
Aid. Hilditch felt that with the
$90,000 now available and the $30,-
000 contract below the junction
closed there might be money enough
to grade all three avenues from McBride to the junction of the three
avenues.
Aid. Mobley contended that while
It might not have been the wisest
thing to have started work beyond
the junction in view of the conditions that bad now arisen he felt
that probably they could not legally
stop work ther and change to Third.
Aid.  Barrow alluded to  the    fact
that It had been represented by Aid.
Mclntyre a short time ago that the
whole   of   the   work   then   going   on
was Illegal.     He wished  to know If |
doing illegal work on Third avenue j
would now make it all legal. (Laugh-,
ter.)
Aid. Mclntyre said that while two
wrongs did not make a right, be
thought it would not be quite so glaring if there was a little done on
Third.     (Laughter.)
Aid. Pattullo insisted that a notice j
of motion be given.
Aid. Lynch accordingly gave notice j
of moving In the direction indicated |
on Wednesday night.

NEWS OF THE PROVINCE
Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
Reorganizing Legal Department
Victoria.—In connection with general reorganization plans for the attorney-general's department, it is understood that Mr. David Whiteside,
the well-known Grand Forks baris-
ter, who has just allied himself with
the legal office of the Crown in British Columbia, will take full charge
of all registration and other business
incidental to the operation of the
Companies' Act, this work being detached from the work of the Land
registry office here, and being hereafter attended to in off%es forming
part and portion of the attorney-general's department.
The general work of the local registry Is to remain in the charge of
Mr. S. Wootton, whose staff has recently been augmented so that all
work may be hereafter be ekpt strictly up-to-date. Mr. Whiteside's first
official duties wil Include the weeding out of the numerous old companies whose charters are lapsed or
cancelled.
For' George's Water
Fort George.—A large water tank,
li .'Ming 2.b00 giions has bean
placed at the corner of Central avenue and Hammond street, which
will temporarily supply the residents. Underground water pipes will
be laid to various parts of the town,
a 6 horsepower gasoline engine operating the pumping plant. The power
p'ant acquired near the Willow
river Is intended soon to furnish
facilities for a complete and a modern system of waterworks and sewerage, and an electric lighting system.
Drydock Plans
Vancouver.—Plans for a drydock
at Vancouver, in which Captain N.
Thompson is interested, have been
filed with the minister of public
works.     ,
They provide under the legislation
of last session for a second class dry-
dock of the commercial class, which
means that if the plans are approved
the company will be entitled to a
bonus oi 3 V2 per cent on an expenditure of $2,500,000 for a period of
twenty-five years.
The dock will be one of sufficient
dimensions to accommodate any vessel doing business on the Pacific
coast.    It will be over 600 feet long.
Docks of Hie first, or battleship
class, such as it is proposed to build
at Esquimau, get a subsidy of 3V4
per cent on an expenditure of four
million dollars for twenty-five years.
Coal  Mine  Deal
Victoria.—Mr. John Arbuthnot,
president of the Pacific Coast Coal
Mines Company, denies the report
which has become current tbat the
Canadian Pacific Railway is negotiating for the purchase of Hie South
Wellington Collieries which are controlled by his company. He admits,
however, that two large railway companies have approached him with the
Idea of purchasing and that the representative of one of these is looking
ovr the property.
"I am not anxious to sell," said
Mr. Arbuthnot, when questioned
about the matter. "A number of
large companies have sounded me on
the matter, but up to present no option has been taken on the property.
I do not know how the report got
abroad that the C.P.R. was negotiating for the purchase, A representative of a large railway company left
for South Wellington to have a look
over Ihe collieries, and as a result
of his visit it is just possible that
we may give an option on our holdings."
he mentions has left for British Columbia with a capital of £80,000.
Horticultural Board
Victoria.—At a special executive
meeting yesterday an order-in-coun-
cil was passed appointing Mr. J. F
Errington of Sidney, In the islands
constituency, the new member of the
provincial board of horticulture, to
represent district No. 1, embracing
Vancouver Island and adjacent Islands, In the place of the late Captain Peter Elliston, who was shot
at Work Point Barracks. Mr. Errington will take his seat upon the
board when that body meets in this
city on October 11.
Coming  to  Coast
Nelson.—A representative guttering of leading men of Nelson and
Kootenay made presentations to Air.
R. S. Lennie, who is leaving this city
to reside in Vancouver. After bearing an address he was presented with
a handsome cut glass set by citizens,
while the bar association gave him
a set of gold sleev links and accompaniments.
Mr. Lennie has been a resident of
Nelson since June, 1895, when he entered the law office of John Elliot as
a student. He was called to the
bar on February 2nd, 189S, and
immediately formed a partnership
with Mr. Elliot. Upon the removal
of the latter to Vancouver in 1905,
Mr. Lennie took over the business,
and the following year formed bis
present partnership with Mr. Wrag-
ge. Mr. Lennie came to Nelson from
New Westminster as a student from
the office of the late T. C. Atkinson.
He is a native of Dundas, On*., and
came west at a very early age.
During his residence in Nelson Mr.
Lennie has always been prominently
identified with the Conservative association and was president for six
consecutive years. At the big district
convention held in Nelson in 1908 he
was elected president of the iDstrict
Conservative association.
Only a few weeks ago Mr. Lennie
returned from the coast, where he
acted as chairman of the fire insurance commission.
In the last annual election of the
Bar Association of British Columbia
Mr. Lennie was elected at the top of
the poll, a position which he seems
likely to occupy for many years to
come.
It will be of interest to sportsmen
to know that it was Mr. Lennie who
organized the first lacrosrs team In
the Kootenays. This was in the
year 1897, when the Nelson lacrosse
club came into being.
C. R. Hamilton, K.C., of Rossland,
will take Mr. Lennie's place as a
resident member of the firm, his
Rossland business being combined
with that of the present firm. The
new firm name will be" Hamilton,
Lennie & Wragge. It will have offices in both cities.
Mr. Lennie is retaining all his interests in Nelson and the Kootenays.
In Vancouver he will carry on his
professional business without entering into any partnership for the present.

Scenic Road
Vancouver.—A scenic railway line
from North Vancouver to the top of
Grouse Mountain al a cost of between $2110,000 and $2.50,000 Is tbe
project now being undertaken by a
number of Vancouver capitalists.

Bulkley   Valley    Has    First   Supply
Made on the Ground
The first bricks to be made in this
part of the country were turned out
last week by A. Kroening at the
Bulkley brick works two miles down
the river from town, says the Interior
News of Aldermere. The product is
a building brick of very superior
quality and Is meeting with ready
saye among builders, who up to the
present time have been unable to obtain this essential material for the
const ruction of chimneys, hearths,
etc. Another kiln will be ready for
burning in the course of a week or
so. Brick chimneys will be erected in
the New Telkwa hotel and a number
of other buildings this fall.
DEFENCE FORCE
General   Hotha    Has   Confidence   in
United  Military  Body
General Botha in a speech delivered at Johannesburg, stated that the
best defence force in the world could
be formed out of the men available
in South Africa. He asked for the
co-operation of the British in forming such a force composed of both
races.
He thought that they should employ Lord Methuen in organizing the
force, and if another British officer
were wanted they should get his "old
war friend, Lord Kitchener."

Deal in Cattle
Merrltt.—One of the biggest deals
in the history of the upper country
is now pending and it involves the
transfer of the extensive properties
of the Douglas Lake Cattle company
to one of the big American meat
trusts, and the financial consideration will be In the vicinity of one and
a half million  dollars.
Representatives of the    American
concern have been ln the valley for
the past few days and are now en-j
gaged in looking over the property, i
It was only a few weeks ago that
William Ward secured complete con-!
trol of the Douglas Lake Cattle company,  buying out.  his associates,  J.
B. Greaves and William Tl ompson.
The prospective purchasers represent one of the biggest meat concerns
in the United States, and if they secure the property it is their plan to
carry out a large number of exten
sive Improvements and to make It
one of the largest cattle producing
bases on the continent.
There is every probability that the
deal will go through because the
meat trust desires to secure a better

they realize that the acquisition of
this property will largely enhance
their opportunities.

About the tiv.ie the' provinces of
British North Anierl-a became Canada, what is now United South'Africa
became known as the country of
diamonds. Before 1867 the world's
supply of the glittering stones had
come, in larger or smaller quantities,
from India, Brazil, the Ural mountains and ther parts of several continents. In that year the first diamond from the Transvaal—the plaything of a little Boer boy, was
brought to Capetown, sent to the
Paris exposition and sold for $2,500.
When gathering diamonds became a
matter of organized mining, the De
Beers company absorbed all the rest,
and twenty-five years after the flrst
discovery of diamonds in South Africa, had prospered so that they had
more money than they knew exactly
what to do with. So, when in 1892,
the flrst year of the last long spell
of hard times, the Chartered South
African company were hard up for
funds to develop their great land
grants, the De Beers company lent
them $1,000,000, part of it being
spent in the construetin of the railroad from Vryburg to Mafeking.
The million dollars was al! paid
back four years later, but an aftermath of the transaction remains ,-in
one of the greatest law suits ever
before the English courts. The issue
involved is the monopoly of mining
diamnds In the whole of Rhodesia,
an area probably as large as Saskatchewan. Borrowers are proverbially
prodigal, except, perhaps, those who
deal with Canadian governments—
and the Chartered company, eighteen
years ago, needed the money so badly that they were willing to give the
De Beers people the enormously valuable exclusive rights of mining diamonds in their territry, which they
did in the following words:
"The Chartered Company shall
grant De Beers exclusive licence to
work all the diamondifeous ground
to which the Chartered Company Is
or may become entitled In the territories to which It now carries on or
may carry on operations, whether
nrth or south of the River Zambesi."
The point before the courts Is
whether this monopoly was granted
In perpetuity or was merely security
until the million dollars was repaid.
The De Beers people claim they have
the perpetual monopoly, and the
Chartered Company maintain the
contrary. In the English courts, Mr.
1 Justice Eady has decided against the
De Beers Company, and the judgment of the curt of appeal was the
; same, but not content with these
I wo defeats the diamond magnates
are appealing to the House of Lords.
It Is a case ln which enormous Interests are Involved, and II Is also a
complicated case. South Rhodesia Is
under Roman-Dutch law, northern
. Rhodesia Is under English law. Au-

At the present time when there is I could be got at all.    From consider-
manifested such a disposition on the
part of so many moneyed men to invest in timber on th's coast, the following from the London Times relative to the timber of the world will
be of interest:—
For years the savants of all nations have been foretelling the approaching extinction of the world's
forest I'ne.'ves, bill -v'ta elm ir two
exceptions, little apparent effect has
been produced on the policv if governments respecting afforestation.
At the first glance the areas under
timber apear so enormous that, as
in the case of the predicted coal famine, a certain amount of scepticism
has been bred as to the grounds for
those doleful prophecies; while the
heavy Initial expense of afforestation
reform also stood in the way of energetic action. The Immensity of the
subject makes it exceedingly diffi-
cut to obtain anything like exact
statistics, but such rought figures as
are available make It abundantly
clear that those unappreciated predictions rest, at any rate, on some
basis of fact. The most important
commercial timbers of the world are
obtained from the coniferous trees,
which are to be found mostly In the
north of Europe and in North America. The great bulk of the Imports
of al large timber-consuming countries consists of those woods, with
the result that the available sources
of supply are being steadily narrowed. There may now be said to be
only six countries in a position to
supply unlimited quantities of merchantable timber, viz., Russia (including Finland), Austria-Hungary,
Norway and Sweden in Europe, and
Canada and the United States in
America. Of these the reserves in
the United States, Russia proper, and
Austria-Hungary are now seriously
threatened by the rapid growth of
their own requirements consequent
on the natural increase of the population, while in Norway the reaping
of the timber crop has been so wasteful as to bring exhaustion within
measurable distance. The resources
of Fin'and are still large, as are also
those of Sweden; while Canada now
represents the world's great reserve.
It was Colbert who said, "France
will perish for want of timber," and,
were it not for the marvellous adaptability of the human race, this
might now be said of the world as a
whole. That the approaching virtual
exhaustion of the foi est resources of
the universe constitutes a very serious question • cannot, however, be
denied whatever the degree of faith
in man's ability to provide himself
with "something just as good." It
might have been thought that the
substitution of iron and steel, stone
cement, and other materials too numerous to mention for timber In
modern constructional work would
have placed a check on the consumption of the latter, but experience has
shown that this is not the case. The
demand has developed even more
rapidly, and the ratio of increase has
been largely in excess of that of the
population Thus, while in the concluding forty years of last century
the population of Great Britain Increased by about 42 per cent, the imports of timber weret rebled; and in
a circular issued by the forestry department of the United States it was
stated that the proportionate increase of population since 1880 was
only half of the proportionate increase in the consumption of timber
during the same period. Even In a
great timber country like the United
States the consumption is three or
four times what the country produces. If further evidence of the steady
Increase of the consumption, as well
as of the depletion, of the reserves
be needed it is to be found In teb
fact that during Hiep ast few years
values have steadily appreciated.
Pine, for instance, has doubled in
price. In the last five or six years
teak has advanced in value by 50
per cent, while American black walnut is almost unobtainable at any
price. A competent authority, giving
evidence before the royal commission on coast erosion, said that im-
poted timber had doubled in value
during the previous twenty years and
the price of forests in Sweden, Canada, and the United States was ten
times higher. These were the statements of a man actively engaged in
timber-cutting in widely-separated
parts of the globe. Pressing upon
the commission the necessity for the
immediate adoption by the state of
an extensive scheme of re-afforestation, he hazarded the prediction that
in less than thirty years the £30,-
000,000 worth of timber now imported into Great Britain would cost
£60,000,000   or  £90,000,000,    if     it
ations such as there it is clear that
even in these days timber is one of
the most useful materials known to
man, and is not likely to be superseded so long as adequate supplies
are available. Largely owing to its
bulk the cost of the labor involved
in the felling, transporting, and
manufacturing of wood is very great
—being roughly equlvalen t to its
first cost—and the rapid destruction
of the forests contiguous to ready
means of transport and the steady
rise in wages have been important
factors in increasing its value. The
owners of standing timber are awaking to the great potentialities of a
large timber area, and are no longer
willing to sell at practically any price
that may be offered by the merchant.
It has been seen from the evidence
submitted to the royal commission
on coast erosion that forest values
have increased tenfold, and it is extremely probable that since that evidence was given ther has been a
further appreciation.
As already indicated, the European countries with a large surplus
available for export are Austria-
Hungary (with which may be coupled oBsnia and Herzegovina), Russia (including Finland), Sweden and
Norway. From al lot these countries, with the exception of Austria-
Hungary, Britain imports largely of
timber for constructional purposes,
and our interest in the depletion of
their forest reserves is no mere academic one. By far and away the
largest forest resrve in Europe is
now existing in Russia and Finland,
which have between them over 500,-
000,000 acres under timber. Austria-Hungary comes next, but a long
way behind with 50,000,000 acres,
Sweden following with 48,000,000
acres, Germany with 34,000,000
acres, France with 23,000,000 acres,
Spain with 20,000,000 acres, Norway
with 17,000,000 acres, and Italy and
Bulgaria each with 10,000,000 acres
Those represent widely varying percentages of area under forest, ranging from 44 per cent in the case of
Sweden and 4 per cent in tbe case
of Russia, to 14 per cent in Italy.
But even the least of those figures
is large when compared with Britain's very modest four per cent. The
proportions of area under state ownership also afford an Interesting comparison, being as high as 84 per cent
in the case of Spain, and as low as
7 per cent in Austria, the figures for
the other principal countries being
as follows: Russia, 61 per cent; Bosnia and Herzegovina, 70 per cent;
Germany, 33 per cent; Sweden, 27
per cent; Hungary, 16 per cent; and
Norway and France each 12 per cent.
With the four exceptions named, all
the European countries are larger or
smaller importers, particularly ,of
flight pines and firs, of which over
80 per cent of Great Britain's imports consists. At one time Germany
was a large exporter, but during the
last thirty years or so its position has
been reversed, and it now imports 25
per cent of its supplies, notwithstanding a huge increase in the domestic production. Austria-Hungray
and Norway and Sweden have borne
the brunt of the European demand
for the last sixty years, and continue to do so, but with the exception of the first-named countries it
is difficult to see how they can do so
for many more years. In Russia, particularly Siberia and IFnland, there
are still, however, large virgin forests, but at present they may be regarded as without the pale of practical politics in view of their inaccessibility, and it is estimated that the
value of the timber will have to advance by at least 200 per cent before it will pay to cut them down.
Our own point of view is, of
course, the most important for us,
and looking at the problem in that
way deprives It of none of its seriousness. Last year the total value of
the timber imported was £23,591,000
About a quarter of this was represented by hewn wood, viz, £5,7S3,-
000, of which £2,928,000 was in respect of pit props and wood, leaving
£2,855,000 as the value of the hewn
fir, oak and teak. Wood, sawn or
split, planed or dressed, accounted
for £115,469,000, furniture woods,
hardwoods, and veneers for £1,792,-
000, and staves for £546,000. Leaving out of account the pit props, furniture wooks, and staves, It Is found
that the total value of the shipments
from Russia was £7,228,000, from
Sweden £2,578,000, and from Norway £1,286,000, while Canada was
drawn upon to the extent of £3,304,-
000, and the United States for £2,-
052,000 worth.    When against those
-THE-
mestic production of timber is valued
the extent of our dependence upon
foreign supplies will be realized.
Those who hold that the bulk of our
requirements, notwithstanding the
alleged superiority in quality of foreign timbers, could be grown at
home state that those needs' could be
fully met from a part only of the
twenty odd million acres of land now
lying waste and suitable for planting.
The eyes of the world are now directed to North America in ihcir
search for future timber supplies.
The area of land under forest in the
United States is prodigious. The
total amounts roughly to 700,000,-
000 acres, of which nearly 150,000,-
000 acres are under s'.aic management or control. Estimates naturally vary widely as to the actual reserves of merchantable timber, the
government census of 1900 putting
the stand at 1,390,000,000 feet
board measure, while two years later
Dr. B. E. Fernow, o' Toronto, esti
mated it at 2,000,000,000,000 feet.
This latter figure was substantially
corroborated by the American Lumberman in 1905; hut a conservative
estimate by a well informed correspondent, which appeared in the
Times at the close of 1908, put it
at 1,500,000,000,000 feet. Though it
is almost impossible lor the lay
mind to realize what these figures
mean, attempts have been made to
place a value on the timber, the
figure which is generally accepted by
competent authorities being roughly
£2,000,000,000. It might at the flrst
glance be concluded that such figures
represent a practically inexhaustible
reserve, but the statistics of consumption, which are naturally more
precise, are quite as Impressive, and
speedily dissipate anything akin to
complacency as to the future. The
present lumber cut amounts to 38,-
000,000,000 feet, and is increasing
at a truly remarkable pace. The
rapid growth of the population would
of course, prepare one for an increase in the timber consumption
year by year, but the actual rate of
increase has been very much in excess of what might reasonably be
looked for on that basis. Between
1880 and 1900 the growth of the
population amounted to 52 per cent,
but in the same period the output
of domestic timber increased by 94'
per cent. The output in the first-
mentioned year was 18,000,000,000
board feet, and since that date the
quantity put through the mills of the
United States totals 800,000,000,000
feet. The exports to Europe amount
to between £S,000,000 and £9,000,-
000 per annum, but on the other
hand over SO per cent of the timber
exports from Canada go to the
United States. From these figures it
follows that without, taking into account the growth of new forests the
available supply of merchantable
timber would be exhausted in forty
years, and even taking such growth
into consideration sixty years would
appear to be the furthest limit if the
duration of the timber supplies. Happily, there are indications that the
public conscience is being awakened
to the obligation which rests upon
the community to make good as far
as possible the enormous annual
wastage, and not only are the forests
being to some extent conserved, but
efforts are being made to reduce the
absolute waste which even yet is estimated but little short of a quantity
equivalent to that actually utilized.
Under the best conditions, however,
it is becoming increasingly plain that
lite time when the United States will
have timber to spare for foreign
consumers is fast drawing to a close.
Turning to Canada as apparently
the last resource of timber Importing countries, it must be confessed
that even here the generally accepted
figures are not too reassuring. Canada's stand of merchantable timber
Is put at a considerably lower figure
than that of the United States, being
In fact, ralher less than half. It is
not unlikely, however, that all hitherto accepted estimates will prove
to be under rather than above the
mark. The forests in British Columbia are very extensive, the stand
being estimated at between 150,000,-
000,000 feet and 200,000,000,000
feet. Canada's total forest area has
been placed at 1,250,000 square
miles, or 38 per cent of the total
area. There will be ample reserves
in Canada lo draw on for runny years
to come, as '.Here is not the same

being rapidly cleared, and obviously
the cost of transport will increase
very appreciably as it becomes necessary to go further inland and northwards for the supplies. It must not
be assumed that the timber used by
man represents the whole of the consumption. The destruction through
forest fires and wind storms is incalculable. Little can be done to
mitigate the effects of the latter, but
the former can be combated with
more prospect of success. The steps
taken in this direction so far are
totally inadequate, but there is
ground for hoping that, in the next
few years more satisfactory progress
will be made both as regards the
preservation of the remaining forests
and the replanting of the depleted

Line Close to Prince
Rupert.
Further Particulars Respecting I
posed Extension of His Portland  Canal   Road
GAZETTE NOTICES
Appointments .Made .by  Provincial
Government During Past Week
The Provincial Gazette now to
hand contains further particulars as
to the Intention of the Mann interests who are In possession of the
charter of the Portland Canal Short
Line railway In the application for
changes In the charter which were
outlined In a special to the Journal
on Friday.
Tiie notice of application to the
legislature states that the capitalization of the company will be increased
by the authority of the bill of which
notice has just been given and the
name and title of the company will
be amended in recognition of Its
transcontinental ambitions and importance.
The legislation sought, as outlined
In the despatch, Is to authorize .the
company to extend Its line from the
terminus at present provided for
(some sixteen miles out of Stewart)
In a general easterly direction to
the eastern boundary of the province
at or near where the Peace River intersects the boundary, from which
point It would naturally be extended
under an Alberta charter to connect
with the exisling Canadian Northern
services at Edmonton.
Notice has already been given of
an aplication that is to be made to
the Railway Commisioners at Ottawa for a recommendation that the
Canadian Northern Railway and the
Edmonton & Slave Lake Railway
companies be amalgamated.
In conjunction with the extension
of the system of the railway now
built at Portland Canal, It is reported
ln wel informed circles that the company will eventually alter the headquarters on the Pacific from Stewart
to a point which It not designated
but which is said to be convenient to
Prince Rupert. If such a course is
followed Prince Rupert will have all
the advantages in a shipping way
that are to be derived from this new
terminus,

anxious to find ways for spending
more. Wherever petitions were presented they got the water.
Aid. Mobley thought it strange
that Aid. Hilditch should be bringing
this nil now. It was a little early
to he playing to the galleries. Election was still a long way off. Aid.
Hildltch had not opposed the putting
in of a stand pipe to serve Ninth avenue which was put In because the
engineer at thai time reported
against additional services being
provided, If a pipe line had been
laid on Seventh avenue, on which
Aid. Hildltch lived, ii would be all
right. lie was actuated by selfish
motives.
Aid, Hilditch who up to this stage
treated the references as a joke now
Interposed, lie objected to the language used by Aid. Mobley.
Aid, Mobley said that Aid. Hildltch
had from the beginning acted the
pari of a critic of the work done by
the council.
Aid, Hilditch said that two months
ago a vote had been passed to place
a hydrant at tiie sash and door factory. Aid. Mobley had some time
ago reported thai it was Impossible
to give water to Ninth avenue. Now
it was found thai it could be done, j
He wns not  playing to the galleries.
Aid, Hilditch added that he was
going to endeavor to find where the
money hud gone this vear. He was
going to move later on that each de
aprtmenl should report upon the expenditures. The citizens bad a right
to know where tliis money wns going to.
Aid Mobley pointed out that Unreport or the engineer had not yet
gone through the committee relative
to the hydrants. The hydrant at
the sash and door factory was not
forgotten.
Aid. Pattullo pointed out that the
finance committee had asked the city
treasurer to bring In a report show-
Ing exactly the expenditure. Aid.
Hilditch could at any Line ascertain
how the money was spent by coming
to the city hall and looking into it.
Aid. Hildltch took exception to the
Insinuation that he should look It
up  at   the  city   hall,
Aid. Pattullo pointed out that It
was the duty of Aid. Hildltch to acquaint himself with the facts and
take the time to do so.
Tiie matter then dropped.
The latest copy of the British Columbia Gazette contains notice of the
following appointments:—
Hem- y Bose of Surrey Center,

ilce of the peace for the province.

IMMIGRATION WORK
Col.
Howell of Salvation Army Joins
Canadian Northern
Staff.
Well Trained Worker Hns Identified
Himself With Big Undertaking
Lieut.-Col. T. Howell, head of the
immigration department of the Salvation Army in Toronto, has resigned that position and will take charge
of the big immigration scheme of
the Canadian Northern Railway company. Mr. G.V F.'' Southall, who has
been working for the Salvation Army
under Lleut.Col. Howell, follows his
chief to the railway company,
Wliile the head offices of the new
department will be in the Canadian
Northern offices in Toronto, Lieut-
Col. Howell and Mr. Southall will do
a great deal of their work in Britain.
The intention of the company is to
bring out farmers and farm laborers
from the old land and to settle them
on farms along the routes of the Canadian Northern in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Albert and British Columbia, or in Ontario if the newcomers so desire. Plans for assits-
ing those who desire to take up land
by loans for the purchase of stock
and implements, and for instructing them for the first year or so In
Canadian farming are under consideration.
Mr. Hanna, third vice-president of
the company, says the scheme contemplates very extensive settlements
on western farm lands, and Is to absolutely eschew the British towns In
securing immigrants, and to devote
tiie energies of the new department
to securing farmers, farm laborers
and fruit growers, the latter, of
course, largely for British Columbia.
Should the development of the
coal fields of the west which the Mackenzie & Mann intersts control require It, miners will also be brought
out.
Regarding domestic servants, It Is
understood that special efforts are to
lie made to secure those accustomed
to service in farm houses in Britain
for similar positions In Canada, and
for the other class of domestics an
arrangement will be made with some
Toronto institutions to look after
there when they arrive, and secure
places for them all over Canada.

Mrs. W. H. Vlckers, after an enjoyable visit in the Old Land and In

To consider after you have ascertained that your mining proposition
is one of merit, and that practical
mining men are looking after the
development, is the financial arrangement of the company.

property, development and capitalization. You can make a deposit and
we will reserve stock. Call or ad-

Trip to Honolulu
Having chartered the new twin-
screw steamer Prince Rupert from
the Grand Trunk Steamship company
for the trip, the Seattle chamber of
commerce will conduct a midwinter
excursion to the Hawaiian Islands
early in 1911. While primarily a
sight-seeing tour of the islands, the
trip of the Prince Rupert will give
business men of the northwest an
opportunity to cement their trade relationship with 'the industries of the
islands. The Honolulu chamber of
commerce will be hosts of the visitors when they reach the islands, and
trade relations will be thoroughly
discussed.
The Prince Rupert will sail from
Seattle on February 2, 1911, and
thirty-two days will be consumed on
the trip. The passenger list will not
be enfined to Seattleltes, invitations
being extended to the people of the
northwest by the Seattle chamber of
commerce. Special invitations will
be sent to the chamber of commerce
of Portland, Tacoma, Spokane, the
Grays Harbor cities and the cities of
British Columbia to be represent*: i
on the tour.
Floating Island
The news of a great floating island
24 0 miles southwest of the Horn was
brought to Seattle by the big American barque Atlas, which arrived In
the Sound port after an eventful
voyage of 138 days from Philadelphia. The Atlas sighted the island,
a great mass of earth, trees and underbrush, over a half square mile
In area, floating at sea. Birds could
be seen on the Island and growing
plants and brush were clearly visible. The Atlas passed within a half
mile of the great bulk of earth.
Depletion of Fish
The gravest fears are expressed by
prominent fish dealers that the fishing industry in the vicinity of St.
John, N.B., in the Bay of Fundy
waters in general is on tbe verge of
ruin.
"There is~no doubt that the whole
industry is being depleted," said one
man. "All kinds of fish are very
scarce and prices are higher than
ever before. It Is felt that the fishermen are themselves largely to
blame, and they are charged with
catching the smaller fish to make up
for the scarcity of larger ones. The
fish wardens are to take the matter
up. All along Ihe New Brunswick
coast fish are very scarce, codfish
and herring being a total failure.  ...
TO BUILD RAILWAY
Reginald C. Brown Returns From
Charlottes Delighted With
Holdings.
Queen
Work   to   Begin  on  Line  And  Also
on the Coal Measures Held
By His Syndicate
WE STILL HAVE A FEW
Carpets, Chairs,
Fruit Jars
TO CLEAR AT CLEARING PRICES
THE
Active work in connection with the
building of the Queen Charlotte railway will commence at once. This is
the announcement of Reginald C.
Brown, president of the B. C. company who is or.e of the directors of
the company which holds the charter
for the road. He returned on Sunday night from the Islands in company with Alex Faulds after examining into the properties held by him
there. The trip was a trying one as
the party started at Masset and
tramped on foot across the trail to
Queen Charlotte City where they
caught a vessel for here.
While fatigued by the trip, Mr.
Brown expressed himself as delighted with what he had seen. He prophesies for that part of the province
that it wil shortly become one of the
richest sections of the province.
Mr. Faulds, the coal expert, made
examinations for him and he says
the showing of anthracite coal Is of
the highest quality. The examinations were made on the coal measures which are controlled by Mr.
Brown and his associates which were
referred to a short time ago in the
Journal. The quality is equal to that
at Camp Wilson and can be reached
at an easy depth of a few hundred
feet. The report of Mr. Faulds is of
such an encouraging nature that Mr.
Brown will take steps at once to
bring about the organization of a
strong company to develop it.
Tbe railway will leave Skidegate
Inlet at a point probably between
Skidegate and Queen Charlotte City
and proceed to Masset Inlet. It will
open up a very rich district, the
richest, in the opinion of Mr. Brown
and others, that Is to be found on
the Islands.
The country to be thus opened up
has a wealth of timber and coal, and
is a very valuable agricultural district. The railway line will serve to
deveop the different industries.
Along the route of the line which
was granted a charter last session
there are holdings in the hands of
different capitalists in several of
which syndicates Mr. Brown is interested.
While, of course, Mr. Brown had
no authority to say what would be
done, it is more than reasonable to
suppose that there may be a joining
up of several of these interests into
a larger concern.
The railway would serve as a timber carrier for some of the heaviest
timber of the coast. There is also
the coal interests and the agricultural lands.
The holdings of the syndicate of
which John G. Johnston is the representative is also along the line of
the railway to be built by Mr.
Brown's company.
The indications therefore all point
to a wonderful development this
coming summer. Work will be done
on the coal development at once so
that all may be In shape for an early
start in mining.

There's nothing about a set of
harness that requires such careful
attention, In both leather and workmanship, as traces and collars, there's
where the strain lies, there's where
we excel, though we are just as
watchful as to every other detail of
a complete set of harness, be It for
heavy or light work.
