Expert of Agricultural Department Has Gone Up the
River to Locate Experimental Plots on Which
to Plant Fruit Trees—Will Visit Porcher
Island Also and Look Into Possibilities There
J. F. Carpenter, of the department
of agriculture, Victoria, arrived in
the city on the last trip of the Prince
Rupert. He will leave for up the
Skeena where he will meet the farmers in the different settlements
and 100k Into the possibilities for
fruit growing and general agriculture. He has brought with him
about 700 trees for planting experimental orchards.
The representatives of the department will proceed to Kltsumkalum
first, using that as a base. There he
will have the trees properly cared
for and as he makes selection of
places to plant, the trees will be forwarded to be used. Mr. Carpenter
will take the utmost care to see that
the nursery stock finds its way to
the very best locations so that a ful'
test may be made, The department
is very anxious that the fullest information may be obtained relative
to the district so that intending settlers may be given exact information
on the subject and be prepared for
what is before them.
At the present time Mr. Carpenter says it is difficult to get the information desired. The department
wishes to avoid all chance of any
deception being used. There are
many inquiries about the possibilities of the north and those making
the inquiries will, as a result of
the visits of the representatives of
the department to this territory this
year, be in a position to state quite
definitely as to the possibilities.
The planting of the orchards will
be followed by a watch being kept
on the trees and the department
hopes to gain a lot of additional facts
with respect to the horticultural possibilities in the next few years.
On the return from the Skeena
Mr. Carpenter will visit Porcher Island and look into the opportunities
there. He will study the soil and
the genera] conditions in the hope of
ascertaining what is the best that'
can be done by setttlers there.
The horticultural end is not the
only one which Mr. Carpenter will
devote attention to. He will study
the different sections from every
standpoint as related to farming in
the hope of being able to give settlers exact advice as to the lines of
farming to pursue in the different
Up to the present there has been
considerable conflict In the information furnished the government. This
summer's work on the ground undertaken by Mr. Carpenter, Mr. Weir
and Mr. White will give an opportunity to find first what the conditions are in all this vast country and
will form the foundation for additional information.
Mr. Carpenter is taking the opportunity of coming into close touch
with all the settlers possible so that
he may make the very best use of
the short visit he will pay here.
Rev. Dr. Chown of Methodist Church Objects to it-He Expressed His Views
Before Church Gathering

Formal Protest Against Announcement
(Special to The Journal)
VANCOUVER, May 12.—The British Columbia Conference of the
Methodist church, which is in session
here, was addressed by Rev. Dr.
Chown, of Toronto, who dealt with
the ne temere decree. "We cannot,
as Canadians," said Dr. Chown. "allow the interference of any foreign
power with the civil and religious
liberties of our country. We cannot
in this free country permit a decree
which declares any marriage sanctioned by our civil law to be Illegal.
I suggest that you appoint a committee to ge intelligently Into the
matter and make a formal protest."
Rev. A. B. Roberts, of Victoria,
has been elected to succeed Rev. R.
N. Powell as president of the conference for the year. R. F. Stillman has
been elected secretary.

VICTORIA, May 12:—The strong

Balance Sheet Shows a Good Balance to
the Credit of the Institution
Question of Contract Patients Comes
up Before the Board—Plans
The board of directors of the hospital met yesterday afternoon in the
office of P. I. Palmer. The balance
sheet of the institution was presented by the auditors, Stewart and
Stuart, showing that the hospital
was in a most gratifying position
with respect to its resources. The
assets showed a balance over the
liabilites of over $43,000, which was
the subject of favorable comment by
the different members of the board.
Arising out of this audit the question of increased insurance came up
and it was decided that the finance
committee should look into this matter and report upon what additional
insurance should be placed upon the
building and contents. The committee will report at the next meeting
of the board but it is altogether likely that-there will be a recommendation for additional insurance.
The auditor's report was as follows:

Copper City Townsite and Adjacent Property Will be Cleared This
Sawmill   to   Be   Ereoted   There   to
Meet Needs of Settlement
Among the recent arrivals in the
city is W. Saunders, of Copper City.
He has come north to look after the
development of the town with which
he is so prominently identified. Mr.
Saunders is the original owner of the
townsite of Copper City and has in
view further investments there.
He will make arrangements for
the 3tartin got a sawmill there either
himself or through some one else.
In any event he will have the mill in
operation at a very early date. This
will supply the settlers with the necessary lumber for their use and at
the same time will be used in sawing ties and other timber for the
There is a ferry operating at this
point from the railway side of the
Skeena, this having been put in last
year by Mr. Saunders. The ferry
will serve to carry the lumber required to the railway side of the
river, while the location of the town-
site is advantageous for the supplying of the Copper River country
which lies as a hinterland to Copper City.
Another means of opening up the
territory which Mr. Saunders has in
view is the commencing of a land
clearing scheme close to the place.
He will take up a donkey engine and
all other equipment necessary and
stump the townsite, following this
up with stumping operations on the
1,000 acres of land which he holds
close to the townsite. His intention
is to subdivide this area as cleared
into ten acre sections and place it on
the inarktt as fruit land, for which
it is admirably adapted.
Mr. Saunders has the greatest
faith in the Skeena River valleys
and says that there is the greatest
interest manifested in the south in
that district. He has always had the
utmost faith in the Copper City as an
important centre and this faith is
being constantly strengthened. It is
the natural avenue through which
will pass the trade with the great
mineral and mining sections which
are to bi "ound in the Copper River
and Lakelse districts.
With the carrying out of the improvements which he contemplates,
the district will be put in a most
enviable position and settlement
should follow very rapidly. The
acreage which is held by Mr. Saunders is regarded as first-class farm
and horticultural land.
District   Deputy Grand   Master   McDonald, of the Masonic Order,
on Official Trip
This week, Tsimpsean Lodge, A. F.
& A. M., were taken by surprise by
having the E.ttrict Deputy Grand
Master, Mr. McDonald, of Vancouver,
suddenly put in an appearance. Notice had been sent, but the absence
of Mr. Christiansen from the city, to
whom the notice was sent, left the
lodge ignorant of the intended visit.
He was accompanied on his visit
by Worshipful Master J. Irving, of
Last evening the visiting official
met the members of the lodge, leaving again this morning for Vancouver.
After the usual ceremonies the
local lodge conferred the third degree upon a member. Following
this the members and the visitors
retired to the banquet room, where
refreshments were served under the
charge of Mr. Corley, of the Royal.
Toasts and speeches followed.
Mr. McDonald is an early resident
of Vancouver, and in Prince Rupert
he saw the repetition of the early
days of the southern city. He, however, feels satisfied that Prince Rupert will have a much quicker
growth than Vancouver has had. He
was exceedingly well pleased with
the conditions he found here and
was agreeaply surprised to see the
amount of work already accomplished..

of the Grand Trunk Pacific, has relumed  to  the  city.
Board of Trade Take Steps to Urge Upon Granby Company Advantage of Locating Their Works in
Prince Rupert—The Purchase of The
Hidden Creek Mining Property
Seems Assured
The return this week of M. K.
Rodgers, of the Hidden Creek Mines,
and the party of Granby officials
revives interest in the deal pending
for the purchase of the controlling
interest by the Granby Company.
The bond has until the middle of
June to run so that no immediate
action is necessary, although F. M.
Sylvester, assistant general manager
admitted that the decision to purchase or to release the property will,
in all probability be decided upon the
report to be made by the ofifclals on
this visit. It is generally understood
that the report will be such that the
property will be taken over.
Mr. Rodgers, the original owner,
said the work done showed the property in a better light than he had
expected, both as to quality of ore
and also as to values. Mr. Sylvester
and other officials of the Granby
Company, also were agreeably impressed with it and stated there was
a great showing of ore.
The bond on the group, if taken
up, makes the Hidden Creek one of
the most promising copper-gold
propositions on the coast. It is
$400,000 for an 80 per cent interest,
Mr. Rodgers retaining the minority
interest. A small payment was
made last fall and development work
has been in progress ever since.
This work comprises drifting and
cross-cutting in tunnels, as well as
diamond drill work.
On the visit to the property, the
company officials were accompanied
an eminent New York expert, B. B.
Lawrence, and his assistant, Mr.
Julihn, a well-known mining engineer.
During the visit to Prince Rupert
members of the board of trade took
occasion to meet the officials and
urge upon them the advantage of locating the smelter, which will follow the purchase, in this city. The
advantages were set forth and the
members of the board of trade yet
hope that the Granby Company may
see its way clear to locate here.
Mr. Sylvester, when Interviewed
on the subject, said that in the event
of the mines being taken over there
would likely follow in less than a
year's time the erection of a smelter. With respect to the location of
it the natural place would be in close
proximity to the mines. A conversation with him revealed the fact
that the ore while of good value was,
nevertheless, what would be considered low grade. It was necessary,
therefore, to have the reduction
works as close as possible to the
point of production.
In locating in Prince Rupert there
was the disadvantage that at present
neither ore in quantity nor fuel were
in close proximity. Both essential
supplies would have to be carried to
the works.    At Goose Bay there was

Examination of Animals of Settlers from I'nitod States
Among the arrivals In ihe city on
Wednesday evening was Dr. K. F.
Tolmie, of Victoria, who Is veterinary Inspector under the Dominion
Government In the province. The
visit of Dr. Tolmie was one made
necessary by the arrival of a settlers' live stock, which came through
without the proper inspection and
certificate from Seattle.
Through ignorance of the regulations the stock was shipped from Seattle without the necessary inspection. It was intended to be taken
ihto the Skeena district. The matter
was adjusted by Dr. Tolmie making
the trip to Prince Rupert and here
making the necessary inspection and
formally passing the animals.
Dr. Tolmie is a member of one of
the oldest families on the coast. His
visit to Prince Rupert, however, s
the first one for him. Speaking of
the outlook of the place, he was very
optimistic. The courage of the citizens was likewise the subject of favorable comment from him. The

Bulkley valley, has been formally
recognized by the Grand Trunk Pacific as one of its mainline towns.
In doing so the company puts its
seal upon that place, guaranteeing
that it will be one of the centres
which will be recognized from the
start. The local interests controlling the townsite, Law-Butler Company and W. S. Benson, have completed arrangements with the railway company by which tlie latter

will  issue the deeds for them.
Houston has been recognized by
the promoters as the principal town
of the Bulkley. It has been selected

The fact that the railway company
has recognized the site is a further
assurance of its desirable location.

Sketch of the Nan Who is so Much
in the Lime Light
He  Was  Brought up  to  the  Police
Business—Common Sense
Solves Mysteries
William J. Burns, the detective
who arrested the men who are alleged to be mixed up in the crime
of blowing up the Los Angeles Times
and other buildings, promises to be
very much in the limelight for a
Recently he was selected by the
American Bankers' Association to
trace up robberies and suspicions of
robberies, nad he left the United
States federal secret service to take
this work—the protection of 11,000
banking institutions against frauds,
defalcations and robberies.
The William J. Burns National
Detective Agency is his organization,
with headquarters in New York,
brandies in all parts of the country
and representatives in all parts of
the world. After sixteen years in
the secret service bureau of the
treasury department, during which
he never disappointed his chiefs on
a single case to which he was assigned. He has inagurated his career as a private detective by obtaining the one largest commission
Everyone in the west, and also
everyone anywhere who has followed the San Francisco municipal
graft and the timber land fraud
prosecutions, knows William J.
Burns, who is called "Never Fail."
Those two vital cases were his post
graduate course in his profession
and gave him a record that makes
him without question one of the
greatest detectives of his time. But
few persons beyond those who have
been directly associated with him
are familiar with his personality or
with the steps that have brought
him into national prominece.
When a reporter entered the offices of the new detective agency a
few days ago he was ushered into a
room wliere a quietly dressed business man sat at a small desk. At
least the reporter saw no particular
difference between William J. Burns
and any prosperous business man
until he slid into a seat a few feet
away. It is not a correct estimate
of his appearance to say that William J. Burns might be a lawyer or
a manufacturer or a promoter or a
physician. He might, but the observer would know at a second
glance that he is none of these
things. There is something about
him that puts him outside the ordinary professional or commercial
class—a suggestion of keen, fearless, detecting intelligence in his
wide, clear eye; an Impression of
bodily and mental alertness in the
set of his head and shoulders; au
indefinable hint of an ulterior outlook and judgment behind his frank,
ready, unhesitating manner. Perhaps one would not go up to him in
a crowd and point him out as a detective, but havin gonce known him
as such one would certainly say that
he is well equipped for his particular
line of effort.
And still there is little of the ordinary policeman as popularly conceived about Mr. Burns. He is of
medium height, with just a tendency
to weight, soft reddish hair and mustache, light brown eyes and small
hands and feet. He does not look
a day over thirty-seven, though he is
considerably more than that, and his
cheeks are almost chubby. For the
rest, he has the quiet command and
repose of the man of action who is
sure nf himself and his abilities,
talks well and is without pose or affectation.
"I was brought up among detectives and to the business of catching criminals," he said easily In answer to a question. "My father was
a police commissioner in Columbus,
Ohio, and while 1 was still a boy I
was able to study police methods and
to aid in solving crimes. It attracted
me, and when I became older I drifted into it naturally.
"The first case of any importance
on which I was engaged was in Ohio.
There was a big uproar over election
frauds perpetrated by means of
forged tally sheets. I picked up
some Information, and, being near
the authorities through my father,
was asked to work on the case in
earnest. I accepted and obtained a
part of the evidence and uncovered
the crimes and convicted those responsible for them. After that I
was employed by a private agency In
St. Louis for a time, and in 1890 I
went into the secret service, where I
remained  until  1906,   when  I  took
up the San Francisco graft case."
"How about your methods, Mr.
Burns; deduction,"—began the reporter.
"Nothing to it," said the detective
vigorously. "I see what you're coming to. You mean these mysteries
built up with a pen and solved by
the color of cigar ashes. Whenever
you hear a man talk about clearing
up a crime the way Conan Doyle or
Gaboriau work it out in print you
can know he's a bunk talker.
"The only thing that goes for a
detective is just plain common sense.
It's not nearly so brilliant or so attractive or such good material for
fii'tion as the genius of Sherlock
Holmes. But it's the way that criminals are captured and convicted. I
apply to my business simply the ordinary principles of system an'
foresight and practical handling of
facts and patient investigation that
a man does who runs a store or a
factory. And I do it without going
into a trance.
"Do I start out with a theory?
Well, yes. When you have enough
threads In your hands you fall in
with a theory, of course. But I
never let the theory run away with
me. A theory is a pretty flimsy
thing that it isn't safe to hang too
much on. I always make my theory
fit my facts, and not the other way
about. If a man lets himself get too
fond of his theories he can't give
very much unbiased attention to the
In 1906 Mr. Burns gave up his position with the government and went
to San Francisco to help Prosecutoi
Heney in his fight against the corrupt municipal ring. He obtained
the confessions from members of the
board of supervisors and all the important evidence that brought about
the conviction of Mayor Schmitz,
"Boss Abe" Ruef and others. He it
was, also, who discovered that the
defence had managed to get a former convict, Morris Haas, un the
jury at the Ruef trial.
"Haas stole into the court room
one day," said Mr. Burns, in relating his more recent adventures, "and
got behind Heney and myself. A
policeman grabbed him before he
could make a move and put him out.
He got back a few days later and
shot Heney through the beau. Before Haas committed suicide in jail
he confessed that he had meant to
kill both of us. But that was a detail. It was touch and go all the
way through, and when they offered
me $100,000 as a bribe to gel out, I
wasn't even surprised."

\ I!. Will Give a Through Train
from Toronto to Vancouver
Tliis  Season
Toronto citizens will after June 4
be able to travel direct to Vancouver
by through Canadian Pacific Railway train.
The Canadian Pacific has long
had this service under consideration,
as under former conditions citizens
traveling to the coast over their lines
had to make connections at Winnipeg with the Iniperiol limited or the
Pacific expresses from Montreal.
By the new arrangement Toronto
people will be able to go direct to
the coast without change, which is a
change of great importance. Just
how the train will be made up has
not been decided as yet, but it will
be fully up to the standard of the
famous Canadian Pacific imperial
limited. It Is probable that some of
the luxurious new compartment
sleeping cars and compartment library observation cars which the
•onipany are now building at their
\ngus shops, Montreal, will be Included in the train.
This change In the Toronto-Winnipeg-Vancouver service will bo accompanied by other changes in the
Montreal end of the Canadian Pacific lines. The imperial limited from
Montreal will, as usual, ru l straight
through to the coast, but ihe Atlantic and Pacific expresses will, after
June 4, be known as the eastern and
western expresses, and will be run
as a fast train between Montreal and
Winnipeg only. This will give practically the same service on these
lines as before, as the new train will
make connections each way with the
through train between Toronto and
Vancouver. The new western express
train will leave Montreal at 10:10
a. m., and on the return journey
will leave Winnipeg at 6:20 p. m., or
about 30 minutes after arrival of the
train from Vancouver for Toronto.
The imperial limited will leave Montreal as formerly at 10:30 p. m.

The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite In British Columbia.    Does that start you thinking?
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact is a very important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the hub
ef the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were doing when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity of Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Grand Trunk Pacific has put its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
believe the company will do as much
for townsites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison. If
you desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
STUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order class with his wares. ELLISON is in the Missouri class. Therefore, I am not telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that can be readily verified.
STUDY     THAT      MAP.—If     you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,     then     you
should put your money into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not interested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with the exception of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. You may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is  now   being  opened   up,   and   for
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both by rail and water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and +z50 for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the

Lloyd George's Bill to Provide for Old
Age Allowances in
Both   Sides  of  House  Give   It  Support—Some Features
of It
Details of Lloyd George insurance
bill, which is a big scheme of social
reform are as follows:
Mr. Lloyd George divided his
proposition into two parts, one dealing with sickness and the other with
unemployment. By the provisions of
the measure every worker whose annual earnings fall below the Income
tax level of £160, will be coinpul-
sorlly insured against illness so as to
assure him the receipt of five shillings ($1.20) per week during his
incapacity. Toward this the worker
will contribute about one-half, the
same being deducted from his wages,
while the balance will be paid jointly by his employers and the state.
The weekly assessment against the
insured would be eight cents in the
case of a man and six cents in the
case of a woman, representing as the
chancellor put it "two pints of ale
or one ounce of tobacco." Everyone
in the class mentioned between the
ages of 1G and Of) is Included in the
Mr. Lloyd George said that his
plan would affect 14,000,000 men
and women. Provision is made
whereby women will receive thirty
shillings in maternity cases on condition that they d onot work for a
month following childbirth and for
free medical attention for every contributor.
The state would also help in the
crusade against consumption, providing $7,500,000 to aid local authorities In building sanatorlums, and
$6,000,000 toward their maintenance.
Although in cases of a permanent
disability the sick allowance would
be five shillings weekly, ten shillings
would be allowed for the first three
months in the case of men and seven
shillings and six pence in the case of
women. Those who can be shown
to have invited incapacity would receive no insurance, though any medical treatment wou'd be provided.
The chancellor concluded that the
total amount to be raised for the
dual plan of insurance and the consumption campaign would be $122,-
000,000, of which amount the state
would contribute $12,500,000 in the
first year. By the fourth year the
state's contribution would be almost
$27,500,000, but measures for the
relief of untold misery in myriads of
homes would have been taken.
Dealing with the unemployment
insurance, the first chancellor said
that it would at first apply only to
the engineering, shipbuilding and
house building trades, involving
2,500,000 workmen. Both the
workers and the employers would
pay five cents weekly each, the state
contributing $3 760,000 a year, or
about one-fourth of the total cost.
The contributors, when unemployed,
would receive a maximum of 15
shilling s and a minimum of seven
shillings weekly. No payments
would be made In strikes or lockouts.
The chancellor was cheered when
he concluded his speech.
Mr. Austen Chamberlain supported the bill, saying the opposition
desired to co-operate in tlie legislation.
General approval of the principles
of the bill was expressed by the representatives of all parties, although
some of the details were criticized.
Mr. Henry Forster, one of the
Conservative whips, commended the
bill. He said the government had
embarked upon the greatest legislative experiment ever Introduced in
any legislative assembly in the

by G. T. P.
Bearing all the marks, figures and
carvings which were gouged in it a
half century or more ago by the Indians of the far north, a large totem
pole fully sixty feet in length and
about three feet in diameter was
taken south by the Grand Trunk
Pacific from Masset on the last trip
of the steamer Henritte. The big
stick so grotesquely arranged is to
be shipped to Ottawa to be placed
outside the Grand Trunk Pacific hotel Chateau Laurier, after It has received the attention of some of the
local anthropologists.
Showing the age of the odd piece
of timber is the fact that it is in
rather a bad state of preservation
and although none of the markings
on it have been effaced, it needs Immediate attention in order to be preserved. Having been exposed to the
sun, the beat of heavy rains and the
storms of so many years nearly all
the paintings on the ancient stick
have been blotted out.
To replace all the marks which
graced the pole when it was first
placed on public view and attempt
to check the progress of the worms
and bugs which are eating away the
stick, is the work facing the local
men who have studied the methods
pursued by the Indians in a case of
this kind. The method pursued in
painting the totem poles so that they
may bear some meaning to any person who has studied the Indian customs, is an art which is known only
to a few white men, and they are
mostly old-timers.
This massive pole held a prominent place in the Indian village at
Masset and was selected by the
Grand Trunk Pacific officials owing
to its size, magnificent carvings and
also for the history which is attached
to It. It is one of the finest poles in
this province and it is to occupy a
most conspicuous position at the
Chateau Laurier. It is understood
that other poles are to be sent to the
The   Line  from   That   Waterway   to
Pacific Is Again Spoken of
The Winnipeg Tribune says that
within a fortnight surveys will start
from Edmonton and Winnipeg on
the branch lines in connection with
the Hudson, Bay, Peace River and
Pacific Railway, and that another
survey will proceed to fort Churchill to start work from that end on
the main line which will run right
across the top of the continent,
soutli Peace River district across the
Rockies to Port Simpson and the
Pacific coast. This ambitious project is financed by Scottish capital
with which prominent Toronto and
Winnipeg capitalists are associated,
and there is good reason to believe
in its bona fides. The proposed
route will be the shortest practical
between Hudson Bay and the Pa
cific .reducing the rail haulage to
1,500 miles, or about half any other
transcontinental line. 'Amendments
to the original charter are now being sought at Ottawa to enable the
building of various branches. The
system as planned provides for the
following mileage:
Main line, Fort Churchill to Port
Simpson, 1,500 miles.
Branch, Fort Churchill, southeast
to York Factory, 150 miles.
Branch, Fort Churchill to Winnipeg, east of Lake Winnipeg, 650
Branch from main line in southwesterly direction, east of Reindeer
Lake to Prince Albert   500 miles.
Branch from main line near Edmonton, 300 miles.
Apparently the design is to build
the Edmonton and Winnipeg
branches first, before commencing
the transcontinental line.

The board of trade showed itself
keenly alive to the interests of the
city in attempting to secure the proposed Granby smelter for the city.
While the situation is one which does
not seem to give an yassurance that
the works will he located here, there
is still reaiein lor keeping after the
prize. Piince Rupert business men
are not quitterj. They are accustomed to stay with schemes and in
this matter we advise keeping up
the good work.
There are, of course, obstacles
which it seems difficult to overcome
and which act as good reasons for
locating elsewhere than in Prince
Rupert. However, some of these may
be overcome with the mining development of the coming season. Smelters are undertakings that are located for particular reasons in certain
places. A large supply of ore convenient to the works is nearly always
regarded as a requisite which smelter men are very loath to depart
The location of the works on Observatory Inlet, however, while not
of as great direct benefit as if built
here, will be a decided advantage to
Prince Rupert. A smelter town
means a large payroll and good business. The natural base of supply
for the Goose Bay works would be
Prince Rupert and practically all the
trade should be with this city. All
produce used there will naturally
pass through local houses. It would
be another of the important acces
sories to the development of a great
commercial centre here.
The past few weeks have shown
that the Provincial Government is
decidedly in earnest in its avowed in
tention of opening up New British
Colum'bia to settlement as quickly
as possible. Three officials of the
department of agriculture are now in
the district investigating the resources of the territory from the
standpoint of agriculture. Active
work is in hand looking to tlie build
ing of Ihe trails necessary to allow
settlers and prospectors to go in and
possess the land. A large consign
ment of horses and equipment to be
used on the roads in the Bulkley
have also arrived on the way to start
work in that section.
All this area to lie opened up is
tributary to Prince Rupert and Mr.
Manson, tlie local representative,
should feel highly gratified that his
representations have borne fruit to
the extent shown by this activity. In
Hon. Price Ellison, a practical far;
mer, the department of agriculture
has an executive head that knows the
advantages of quick action with re-
sped to encouraging settlement.
The Skeena district under the McBride government, is about to derive
advantages that many of the older
districts will regard with envy. Under former regimes agricultural and
the farming possibilities received little attention at. the hands of the
central powers. This has now
changed and instead of leaving the
farming sections to be sought out
and possessed by individual effort
assistance is now given to the set
tier, A ft-w years of a policy like
this should make new Britisii Columbia the richest farming territory on
the continent.
A dire calamity is impending. The
editor of the News has made a
threat. He is about to address himself to the question of civic assessments. Unde>r the circumstances, In

VICTORIA—The largest paving
contract ever let by the City of Victoria and in all likelihood the largest
which any single municipality on the
continent was ever called upon to
award, was awarded on Monday
night by the city to the Canadian
Mineral Rubber Company, with
headquarters in Toronto. Of the ten
companies tendering, the bid of the
Canadian .Mineral Rubber Company
for the eighty-nine streets for which
tenders were called, was in the aggregate the lowest. Some of the
other companies were lower on some
streets, but as the other concerns bid
only for sections of the work, the
bid of the Canadian Mineral Rubber
Company being the only one for the
entire work, and as the iatter's bid
was nearly $24,000 less than the
sum total of the other bids, the
council awarded the company the
contract. The work Is approximately
568,000 square yards, nearly thirty
miles in all. Of this about 169,000
square yards can be let forthwith
and the balance, comprising streets
which have not yet actually been
passed by the council for paving, can
be let as the works are approved, the
company giving an understanding
tnat it will undertake the work as
fast aB the streets are passed by the
council at the same rate and under
the same guarantees.
VANCOUVER—Mr. N. Thompson
has received a cablegram from London stating that the syndicate of
British capitalists who had taken
over the franchise of the old Vancouver Drydock Company were now
ready to start operations without
further delay. The capitalization of
the company has been increased to
$1,500,000. They have already let
the contract for the construction of
the big drydock at Newcastle-on-
Tyne, and with! ntwo weeks a contract will be let locally for the work
of preparing a place for its reception
at Roche Point, on the north shore
of the Inlet.
The company has secured from the
Imperial Car Company twelve acres
of land at that place with an option
on twelve acres more, which should
ue sufficient for all purposes. They
hope to have work started there by
May 17 in order to be sure of retaining the Dominion Government subsidy. The drydock in the Old Coun
try will be constructed in seven sections, which will be shipped out
either in a ship specially chartered
for the purpose or sent in sections
on Blue Funnel liners. By combining two sections the dock will have
a lifting power sufficient for any
vessel that enters this port. Of
course, a work of this magnitude
takes time, but the first two sections should be shipped out and put
in place in about a year.
VICTORIA—It is expected that
Dr. Todd, of Montreal, the well
known landscape architect of Canada, will reach Victoria in a few
days, to examine the lands comprising the reverted Sonughees reserve
in this ctiy, and to report to the provincial government as to the best
plan for their subdivision with a
view to their future development to
the best advantage of Victoria and
of British Columbia. Meanwhile,
everything possible is being done in
the way of detail survey work, of
which Mr. Robertson, P. L. S., has
the charge, to facilitate an early utilization o fthese valuable properties.

don streets being covered with a
new rubber composition pavement,
and that London, instead of being
one of the noisiest cities in the world
will be the most silent.
Sir Henry A. Blake, speaking at
an entertainment in connection with
the last rubber exhibition, said he
looked forward to the time when
rubber will compete with the quarry.
He had the authority of a well-
known manufacturer for saying that
at half a dollar a pound rubber could
be used economically for street pavements.
Much has happened in the rubber
world since then, and the price of
half a dollar a pound, which thirty
years ago did not seem a preposterous expectation, seems to have become more and more remote. Yet,
according to authorities who are
studying the situation, the contrary
Is really the case.
Last year's rubber boom, it Is
pointed out, has meant the planting
of many millions of rubber trees In
many parts of the world. The supply of plantation rubber is likely to
be Immensely Increased in the next
few years, while the opening up of
South America may lead to an additional output from that source.
There are good judges who proph-
es ythat by 1915 the price of crude
rubber will have dropped to half a
dollar a pound.   Then will come the
opportunity of those who for years
have been experimenting with the
rubber composition, which will supply the perfect pavement for London
and other large cities.
Rubber pavement is, of course, no
new thing. Such places as the roadway under the Midland hotel at St.
Pancras station and the cqurtway of
the Savoy hotel have been paved in
this way in order to prevent persons
being disturbed by the heavy traffic. It has been laid down In sheets
and Its endurance Is said to be wonderful.
At the rubber exhibition In June
there will be a comprehensive display. One firm has undertaken to
pave the main entrance of the hall
at cost of something like $5,000.
With King George as patron and
Sir H. A. Blake as president, the exhibition promises to be the most
representative that ever has been
held. More than twenty-four colonies and countries, comprising all
the rubber-producing areas of the
world, will be offilcally represented.
"When I was In Europe this summer," said Gayman, trying to entertain the minister, "I got quite interested in some of them old churches."

"No. You don't tell me? What

Rush of Settlers into Peace River Country Described by
Outlet for the Wheat of This Land
Will Be by the Pacific
Strung out along the trail to the
last great west, where great grain
fields of the Peace River valley are
expected to give greater yields than
the rich prairie lands ever saw, hundreds of wagons and vehicles of all
sorts, some with spans of six oxen,
some with an ox yoked with a cay-
use, some with mules and oxen
spanned together, are carrying western United States farmers in a g^eat
rush. Mr. Frank M. Ke'ly, of Victoria, returning to Victoria from an
extended trip via Edmonton into the
Peace River and Slave Lake country,
says of it:
"All along the trail, I met the
land-hungry people. From Edmonton to Great Slave Lake, these settlers are strung out wtih intervals
of usually not more than a few hundred yards, hundreds of them there
are with the strangest of outfits,
many with signs painted on the canvas sides of their caboose, their family home: 'Peace River or Bust,'
'Grand Prairie or Nothing,' 'Me for
the Last Great West'—these are but
a few of numerous signs, each painted after the fancy of the landseeker.
"Most of them come from the
United States. They have sold out
their all, placed part of the proceeds
in purchase of an outfit for the big
trek, and they litter the trail. What
a trail it is. There is no read that
could be called a road. Wagon and
caboose are often rutted, often capsized and a crying woman, whimpering children and disheartened man,
sit by the roadside for a brief moment and then get to work to right
their overturned cart and salve the
scattered goods. It takes them two
months to make tne trip; that speaks
of their eagerness to get into the
Peace River valley. It is no Rmall
task, this great moving. Most of
them take all their household effects; had pianos. 1 never imagined
anything just like this great rush
of settlers, hundreds of them; you
couldn't go a hundred yards hardly
without seeing an outfit, with their
strange wagons and carts, with the
mottos painted on them: 'Traveling
Through Arkansaw,' 'Me for the
Golden Peace," all kinds of mottos
Father usuallyp drives the oxen, and
the air is often blue from his remarks to the plodding beasts; some
times mother takes the rein, often a
little child sits beside her—the
greater portion of the trekkers are
A   Great  Country
"It will be a great grain area, this
Peace River valley, and those settlers rushing in there are just repeating the history of the prairies.
Peace River valley has immense possibilities. Many have said that it is
too far north to grow good grain
and they said the same thing of Edmonton and Calgary before the crops
disproved them. At Fort Vermilion,
which is 700 miles north of Edmon
ton, when I was there I saw the
grain milling machinery installed by
the Hudson's Bay Company. For the
last thirty years the Hudson's Bay
Company has been growing grain
and milling it; they have their own
machinery to make their flour. They
can tell you of the richness of that
grain. For two months in the year
there is no night; you can read until midnight, and after the twilight
lights Into dawn. There is heat there
all the time, no rain, no frost, and
the grain ripens quck. There has
never been a failure.
"This grain will be largely shipped
by way of the Pacific ocean when
these settlers have opened up the
country, and the elevators come into
existence. The railroads are looking to this. I heard that the Canadian Northern railroad had given a
contract for forty miles of road from
Lake St. Anne, west of Edmonton,
to some point on the Peace River,
which will be the divisional point for
the new transcontinental railroad to
be built by the Canadian Northern
"At Peace River crossing there Is
a big ranch, the owners of which
have brought in modern agricultural
implements, and they raised a crop
of 100 bushels to the acre, not ten or
twenty, or even forty, which has
been considered a big crop, but one
hundred bushels. In the northern
plateau of the Peace River some settlers grow oats as well, and they said
that if the influx of people was the
same they would be independent if
they had two more years like the
last two. They get $1.50 a bushel
for their oats.
"I met Mr. McFarlane, a Dominion government land surveyor, who
is delimiting the boundary between
British Columbia and Alberta, and
who has been all over that district.
He is most enthusiastic; best country
in the world, he says. He took a
number of stock cattle in last year
and is starting a big stock farm. It
is cold in the winter. When I was at
Slave Lake in January the thermometer ranged from 40 to 70 below
zero, and often It was 30 below, and
then I did not suffer from the cold.
The cold weather and the little snow
is what fertilizes that country and
will make It a great grain land.
"I gave a number of intending settlers I met with, copies of the British Columbia land laws, and had
many talks with the trekkers, telling
them of British Columbia, and many
will probably go into the northern
part of this province. In Alberta
the laws permit of only 160 acres
being homesteaded, and some of the
newcomers have bought South African scrip so that they can take up
another quarter section. They are
all after land—after lots of land."

Mr. Douglas has been prominently

taken defeat with grace and in a
philosophical way. He takes victory
in the same way.

After the remarkable series of
records created by Bouchard, of
France, and Holmer, of Canada, in
the last Marathon at Edinburgh,
everyone will hope that the pair will
again be seen in opposition. The
Frenchman made too much use of
his speed in the tirst half of his journey at Edinburgh, and if he were to
"trail" his most dangerous rivals, he
might do something wonderful for
the full journey, though whether he
is quite as good as I-Io'mer is another
matter. France has another great
stayer in II. Slret, and the manner
he outdistanced his rivals in the professional Marathon race from Windsor to the Stadium in September,
1908, made a great impression on
experts. The Isle of Man race to be

will not feel the jar so greatly as
they would if the event were run on
a cinder track,
Shrubb's beautiul low stride is
ideal for long distances, out unfortunately his temperament will not
permit of his maintaining one even
pace, regardless of his rivals. He
was always prone to running his
races in snatches and does not relish
being headed. He is also now In the

President Andrews is trying to get

The football season In England is
over and cricket has now commenced. The county championships
began with Notts winning from the

and 46 runs.
With regard to the prospects of
the various counties, in several cases
there will be a change in the captaincy. M. C. Bird becomes captain
of Surrey on the ee'irement of Leve-
son-Gower. J. W. H. T. Douglas
succeeds McGahey as captain of Essex, I. R. Foster follows H. J. Goodwin for Warwickshire, and G. H.
Simpson-Hayward takes the place of
H. K. Foster for Worcestershire. Sir
Arthur Hazlerigg has resigned the
captaincy of Leicestershire, but no
successor has yet been chosen, J.
Shields, the wicket keeper, having at
present been only appointed for
three matches. So far it is doubtful
who will be captain of Northamptonshire, as neither T. E. Manning
nor E. M. Crosse can play regularly.
Senator Roy Will Be Canadian Commissioner at Paris
Senator Roy, of Edmonton, who
visited here last sumer with Sir Wilfrid Laurier, has been appointed Canadian Commissioner at Paris in the
place of the late Hon. Hector Fabre.
He is in his forty-fourth year, and
is a native of St. Francois in Que-
bes. Senator Roy studied medicine
at Laval and has had a practice in
the west, but his interest in politics,
his stake in a French paper which he
published in the west, and his finan
cial and commercial interests have
absorbed a large measure of his at
tention. He is in good financial circumstances, and is in touch with
French capitalists.

The general opinion of the English press on the Lord Chamberlain's
order that the hobble skirt be
banned at all court functions is that
it means the disappearance of that
dress which reminds one of a sack
In court circles it is whispered
that Queen Mary positively abhors
the hobble skirt, in fact, she discountenances all extremes of fashion, such as tight skirts, enormous
hats and exaggerated coiffures.
The disappearance of the hobble,
of course, also means the end of the
Pasha or Harem skirt.
Fashionable dressmakers appar
ently are glad that these skirts are
banned. The manager of one dressmaking firm voiced the opinion of all
when she said:
"We have ceased to order tight
skirts unless specially ordered. I
sincerely hone we have heard the
last of the detestable 'hobble.' It
was forced on us. I think we shall
all be glad to see the last of It. I
saw no merit in it from beginning to
end. Not one 'hobble' In ten fitted
Another leading dressmaker admitted that many gowns for the first
court, on May 9, had been de-lgm:-.!
as 'hobbles.' These have be"n entirely remodeled.
The careful manner in which any
approach to a royal command lias
been avoided in the matter Is evidenced by the fact that no written
message has been sent to dressmakers, but an official from Ihe Lord
Chamberlain's office personally
called and requested the managers
to convey to their clients the information that it was undesirable that
tight skirts should be worn at court.
The Queen's position is approved
by many women and all men, The
hope is expressed that the Lord
Chamberlain's office will next convey the hint to milliners that big
hats must go, too.
All Citizens of Prince Rupert,

Large Block in Telkwa District Reported
Sold to New York
Howson-Dockerell   Groups   of   Properties to Be Taken Over
by Sundicate
A deal for the sale of a block of
coal land twenty miles square, In the
Telkwa and Bulkley valleys, owned
by the Prince Rupert Coal Mines,
Ltd., to a New York syndicate, is virtually closed, according to reports
from Vancouver. It involves the
payment of nearly one million dollars.
The area was exhaustively tested
with two diamond drills last summer. The boring, it is said, proved
the continuity and depth of numerous seams, some of them being over
twenty feet in thickness. The coal
is a high grade bituminous, admirably adapted for steaming and domestic purposes.
The report submitted by the engineer so favorably impressed the New
Yorkers that they have, under the
powers of their option, applied for
crown grants of the coal lands preparatory to making the first large
The principal shareholders of the
selling company are Mr. Henry How-
son, a well-known mining man, of
Victoria, and Mr. Frank Dockerell,
of Vancouver. Mr. Howson will
leave shortly for the district to direct development work on adjacent
coal areas, in which he is interested.
He will also direct operations on the
big group of copper-gold claims
vested in the Telkwa Mining, Milling
& Development Company, which also
controls eight coal claims in the
same district.

Duke, Al and Edgar Harris and
John Mullen, returned to town from
the American Boy group on Nine
Mile on Tuesday, surface water coming into their workings having
forced a close down for the time being, says the Omineca Herald.
Four men have worked on the
property since about February 10
and in that time a shaft has been
sunk 17 feet and another o7 feet
with a drift off it 28 feet long. For
the facts we are indebted to Duke
Harris, who states that in the first-
c'ass ore dumps obtained in sinking
the two shafts and in driving the
drift there is about forty tons, thirty
at one shaft and ten at the other.
The thirty-ton dump is shown by
their assays to be worth $98 a ton
in silver and lead at present commercial prices, and the smaller one
$125 a ton, or roughly speaking,
$4,000. Besides this there is cbout
60 tons of ?40 ore which cannot be
considered as profitable at present.
Although the deeper shaft was
sunk where a horse cut the ore in
two, so that little ore was recovered
In sinking, still the high grade ore
could be packed off the hill and
shipped to Trail, allowing $40 a ton
for the total charge and allowing
themselves $4.50 for every day
worked, at a total profit of $1,000
on the basis of settlement allowed by
the smelter. Considering that half
of the total work of the last three
months yielded very little first-class
ore, most of tlie ore taken out of the
deeper shaft going into the second-
class dump, the results are very satisfactory.
There are four veins on the group
so far known, which were stripped
a distance of 1,800 feet last fall,
with ore showing from one to five
feet wide. In the bottom of the 17-
foot shaft there is a showing of 22
inches of high grade ore and in the
face of the drift there is 18 inches
of practically the same class of rock.
In about two weeks they will return to the property and trace the
veins down the hill to locate a site
for a tunnel to open up the property
at depth. It is possible to obtain
between 700 and 800 feet of depth
by a tunnel driven on any of the

The following are a few brief extracts from a lengthy and interesting paper contributed by Charles
Camsell to the Journal of the Canadian Mining Institute on the history
and origin of platinum in the Tulameen country.
"The history of platinum mining
in the Tulameen dates from the
Granite Creek excitement of 1885,
and as platinum is essentially a
product of the placers, is intimately
bound up with that of gold placer
mining here.
"In the early days on Granite
Creek, when platinum was purchase-
able at the rate of about 50 cents an
ounce, it was regarded by the miners as a detriment rather than otherwise, and usually was not even saved
in the clean-up. When a little later,
however, the price had advanced to
about $3 an ounce, the metal when
recovered was saved and this has
been the practice since.
"Not all of the creeks tributary to
the Tulameen River contained platinum in association with the gold. In
general it may be said that the placers on creeks on the southern side
of the Tulameen River from Granite
Creek up to Champion Creek, including the Tulameen itself, carried
platinum as well as gold; while on
the northernd side of the river, only
Bear and Eagle Creeks were productive, although not to a very large
"The best placers were undoubtedly
those of the Tulameen River itself
between the mouths of Slate and
Champion Creeks. Here the coarsest
nuggets were found, and the proportion of gold to platinum was about
one to ohe. Slate Creek was next in
importance, and then Cedar Creek,
Granite Creek and its western tributaries, Bear and Eagle Creeks.
Boulder Creek, flowing into Otter
Lake north of the Tulameen River,
though much worked for gold, contained no platinum. On the Tulameen River itself no platinum was
found above the mouth of Champion
creek, and below Slate Creek the
grains became finer and the quantity
gradually decreased.
"Much of the gold and platinum
found in the Tulameen River is
coarse and has that rough uneven
surface characteristic of nuggets
which have not traveled far from
their original source. Even in the
beds of rapid streams the distance to
which coarse gold travels is as a rule
not considerable, and the same rule
applies to platinum, which has a specific gravity not greatly different
from that of gold. Much of the gold
of the district is still found embedded in quartz, while the platinum is
often associated with pyroxene, olivine or chromite. It is to be concluded, therefore, that the present
placers are not very old; that they
have been derived from the breaking down of rocks not very far distant, and are not the result of the
working over of more ancient placer
deposits formed by earlier streams."
Sir George Doughty, who came to
British Columbia last September
with Charles M. Hays, president of
the Grand Trunk Pacific to look Into
the possibilities of the fishing industry on this coast, is preparing three
steam trawlers for despatch to these
waters at Grimsby, England, according to advices brought by some fishermen who have arrived to seek employment in the herring fishery.
They state that it is the intention of
Sir George Doughty to enter the
coast whaling business, and he will
place the three vessels In the whaling service, and will investigate the
herring business. Sir George Doughty Is largely interested In the fisheries of the North Sea, and has many
vessels with headquarters at Grimsby. The fishermen state that they
were Informed at Yarmouth that it
was the intention of some Yarmouth
people to send some steam drifters
to British Columbia to engage In the
herring fisheries.

Minister of the Interior Has Trouble to
Face in Connection With
Dan  McGillicuddy's Allegations Are
to Be Looked into by
Hon. Prank Oliver, minister of the
Interior, is certainly In trouble at
the present time. He visited his
home city of Edmonton only a few
weeks ago to receive the coldest of
receptions. A local paper referring
to that reception said:
"The reception which has been
given Hon. Frank Oliver on his return to Edmonton for the parliamentary recess is probably wholly without precedent in the history of Canadian politics.
"A man who occupies the post of
minister of the interior would naturally be expected to possess prestige quite apart from his personality.
The immense patronage under his
control should, under ordinary circumstances, assure his hold on his
seat so long as he continues in the
possession of the portfolio. Then
we must not lose sight of the fact
that Mr. Oliver at the last two elections has been returned by majorities that were about the largest given in any part of the Dominion. Indeed, it was because of his having
what was considered an absolutely
safe seat, not because of any particular qualification of his own, that he
was called to the cabinet in 1905.
"Yet he comes back for a few
days' visit, full of the subject which
has been agitating parliament and
anxious to tell his constituents what
he thinks of it. He suggests to the
Liberal executive that a meeting be
called and it refuses to be identified
with any gathering at which the
minister is to appear.
"Nothing could serve to demonstrate more forcibly how high feeling runs in the city against the
forces that are headed by Mr. Oliver
and Mr. Sifton. Party lines have
been entirely broken. Such plain
talking out in meeting from old-time
politicians has seldom been heard as
came from prominent Liberals at the
banquet the other night that was
held to discuss the possibilities of
the opening up of the north country.
"The development is one that
should fill every loyal Edmoiitonian
with pride. It indicates that our
people are citizens first and politicians afterwards. Why should they
not be? Why should they be prepared to sanction what is going on
to interfere with the realization of
the hopes that underlie the whole
existence of the city for the sake of
working in with the plans of men
who are working a purely selfish political game. There has been too
much disposition on the part of the
mass of electors to be treated as so
many pawns. Mr. Oliver and his
associates have completely forfeited
the confidence of the people of the
city and district and it would be
folly in the name of party regularity,
from which none but a few can benefit, to show approval of men who are
in no sense worthy of it.
"The situation is one that will unquestionably strengthen Conservative prospects. There is no denying
that, and everyone recognizes it. But
tbe anti-Oliver and anti-Sifton movement has Its basis In a state of public opinion which has nothing to do
with traditional or factious opposition."
The return of the minister to Ottawa was followed by serious
charges being launched against him
by "Dan" McGIIlicuddy, in connection with a land grant.
The charge is that a $50,000
amount on the credit side of a certain bank account is traceable to an
order-in-council at Ottawa that permitted a railway company to exchange 660,000 acres of Manitoba
swamp land for 660,000 acres of
Saskatchewan prairie land. The company was entitled to the Manitoba
swamp land under the Manitoba and
Southeastern charter granted in
1891. In 1907 they dropped the
Manitoba land and were given the
area in Saskatchewan.
Mr. Dan McGIIlicuddy, who figures In the charges, has had a somewhat interesting career. Until about
ten years ago he was editor and
publisher of a lively weekly Liberal
journal in Goderich. The famous
West Huron by-election, the first in
which "switched ballots" were distinctly traced, brought Mr. McGIIlicuddy first to general public attention. The official ballots were printed at his office, and he was called to
explain. It was shown that he had
no part in the fraud.
After the inquiry had been burked
at a critical stage, the Goderich editor added a dredging contract to his
journalistic activities. Still later he
introduced at Ottawa a simple and
convenient analytical index to Hansard and for several sessions was
employed In its compilation. Then
the lure of the west took him to Calgary where he published a lively
evening paper. The most notable
achievement of this journal was its
contest with the "Eye-Opener," a
publication which had large command of language of denunciation
and attack. It says something for
Editor Dan that he pushed this war
to the point at which the editor of
the "Eye-Opener" sued him for libel,
which seemed to be a confession that
the Goderich man was ahead In the
matter of language.
Hon. Mr. Oliver has denied the
charges, and Sir Wilfrid accepts his
denials, although being forced to
permit of an investigation.
The resolution which passed the
house was presented by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. It restricts the inquiry to
the point, namely, whether Mr. Oliver received two sums of $50,000
and $19,300 from the Canadian
Northern Railway in return for the
transfer of a land subsid from Manitoba to Saskatchewan. Mr. Borden
pointed out these large sums of money might have come from other
sources and involve misconduct on
the part of the minister. He believed
the whole transaction should be Investigated and that could only be
done by a committee inquiring where
the money came from and how it
was distributed.
"There Is onl yone question properly before the house and country today," said R. L. Borden, addressing
the commons on the Oliver-Cross-
McGillicuddy mix-up, and proposed
an Investigation moved for by Premier Laurier. Mr. Borden pointed
out that the basis of the original
charge in the Toronto Telegram had
been absolutely changed by the Toronto World's reference to the land
deal only. Mr. Borden strenuously
objected to the limitation of the inquiry as proposed by Premier Laurier. He thought there should be
the fullest investigation as to whether the source from which the moneys
came was a clean one. The premier's
position, he considered, was an un
worthy one. It was a pure farce
and merely a piece of stage play, and
not to elicit true facts.    What    the
country would and did require was
a clear and explicit proof that Frank
Oliver had not been guilty of unworthy conduct. Therefore he
would move an amendment that the
proposed committee should have the
fullest authority to investigate all
matters in connection with the original statements against Oliver. Oliver made a lame defence of his limited motion. He objected to the scope
of Borden's amendment.
Houghton Lennox moved for the
appointment of a royal commission
in the following terms:
"That a royal commission to issue
for the purpose of inquiring and reporting whether two sums of $50,-
000 and $19,350, or thereabouts, alleged to have been deposited to the
credit of Hon. Mr. Oliver, minister
of the interior, in a bank at Edmonton on or about the 9th of October,
1907, and month of September, 1909,
were received or obtained by said
Mr. Oliver In such manner, under
such circumstances, or from such
sources as would render said minister's acceptance thereof prejudicial
to public Interest."
Mr. Lennox said they were not
without experience of farcical Investigations,  and  he    mentioned    the
Hodgklns and Lumsden Investigations as Instances.
• The vote on Mr. Lennox's amendment was: Against 99, for 65, a government majority of 34.

That Inspector S. J. Fitzgerald
and his party, consisting of Constables S. J. Carter, G. F. Kinney and
R. O'Hara Taylor were poisoned,
probably by Indians, and that an
official has been sent over the Peace
River trail to make Investigations,
was the story brought by-Mr. F. M.
Kelly, who has just returned to Victoria from the Peace River District.
Mr. Kelly said:
"Two weeks ago near Athabasca
landing I met what I took to be a
Dominion secret service man, and
from his subsequent conversation I
felt sure he was, and he told me he
was going to make investigations regarding the tragedy of the Royal
Northwest Mounted Police party,
whose bodies were recovered by Corporal Dempster and his patrol from
Dawson to Fort Macpherson, near
where the tragedy took place. He
stated that he had absolute proof
that the police party was poisoned,
and from what he said I understood
he considered Indians were responsible for the death of the party.    This
a good harbor and the ore was there
in large quantities. The fuel represented about one-tenth the tonnage
that the ore did so that it was cheaper to carry the coke to the ore than
the ore to the coke.
The company would probably carry out experiments with Vancouver
Island slack coal, looking to the production of coke and see If a supply
could not be obtained there. That
would be the natural source of supply unless the Queen Charlotte Island coal fields become producers.
By locating at Goose Bay, the
smelter would be in a position to
handle ore not only from the Hidden
Creek and other mines In close proximity but would also be able to take
care of shipments from Stewart,
Alice Arm and all mining centres
anywhere on Portland Canal and In
the north. For economic reasons,
therefore, he favors the location of
the works on Goose Bay.
(Continued from Page One)
really two propositions to which the
medical association would agree.
The first was to allow the medical
association to take the contracts in
the city and have the cases requiring
hospital  treatment  to  be treated  In
the Institution, the association paying the regular fees charged. The
other proposal which the association
had to suggest was that of the hospital taking the contracts in conjunction with the association at the
rate of $1,25 a month, an equal division to be made between the hospital and the association.
It was explained that tha committee had gone very fully into the
question with the medical men. The
doctors in taking the latter proposition undertook also to take care of
all the cases outside of the hospital
which it was represented would
amount to no inconsiderable number
during the year. The doctors did not
advise the hospital to take the latter
course but expressed tbe opinion that
the hospital would come out ahead
by allowing the medical association
to handle the proposition and pay
the full rates to the institution for
all cases treated there.
Some little discussion followed the
report, in which the opinion was expressed by the members of the special committee that in view of the
urgent need of funds to carry on the
affairs it would be wise to take con
tract patients as suggested, the
method of a division of the fees being regarded with more favor than
the other system suggested.
While there were members of the
board that felt that in view of the
fact that the institution was a very
young one it would be better to allow things to go along as at present
without touching contracts in any
shape for the present, it was decided
to refer the matter back to the committee with power to take the course
considered best and if deemed wise
to prepare a contract with the medical association.
The question of a revision of the
bylaws of the association, which was
was referred to a special committee,
was brought up and the time extended for the preparation of the
hew regulations which will be reported to the next meeting.
It was decided to make all the returns necessary eto the government in
connection with the hospital at once.
These were delayed owing to the auditors' report not being available.
