Interesting   Sitting   Held by Select Committee of the
City Council Where Industrial Workers Express-
Themselves Views aa to Cost of Living
in Prince Rupert.
On Saturday afternoon in the city
hall, the seleet committee ot the
municipal council sat to hear evident^ from all parties concerned as
to the advisability of increasing the
wages of men employed on street
work to 45 cents an hour, the demand made by the Industrial workers. Some time before the hour set
for opening, 2 o'clock, the city hall
was crowded with city workmen and
others interested in hearing what
was to take place.
The committee, with Aid. Hilditch
as chairman, Aid. Pattullo, Aid.
Newton and Aid. Clayton, sait for
ahout three hours hearing arguments of the workmen, They then
adjourned until the shorthand notes
could he extended, when they will
make their findings and report to
the full council. The chairman said
he felt sure that the council would
not take long to decide after the report of the committee was put in.
It would he settled one way or the
other quickly.
Objects Explained
In opening, the chairman, Aid.
Hilditch, explained the object of the
meeting, it was to inquire into the
question of wages. The idea was to
take evidence and go into this matter more in the form of a commission. After going fully into the matter, the committee would report upon   its  findings  to  the  council.
Early in the proceedings some of
the representatives of the Industrial
workers wanted information. They
appeared to think that the meeting
was a joint one, representing both
the workers and the council. They
wanted to know what the proceedings would be as to the selection of
a chairman.
It was explained by Aid. Pattullo
that the resolution he proposed was
one to investigate the question of
wages in the oity. It was a question
to go into the rates paid elsewhere
as well as here, and arrive at a just
settlement from all standpoints. The
committee was here to hear all the
evidence  that  was  forthcomng.
The chairman took the same
ground. The committee would conduct the investigation and would
hear all the evidence to be brought
forward.
Single Men's Side
Mr. Fisher, the first representative of the Industrial workers, said
that in Vancouver $3 a day was paid
while the cost of living was $5 a
week. In Ketchikan, Skagway,
White Horse and other points, the
wages paid were 50 cents, while it
cost $7 a week for boaruing.
Some surprise was expressed by
several members of the committee
at the rate of $7 for board in
White Horse. The speaker said that
was the rate that was charged.
The cost of clothing In Prince Rupert was as high as was paid In
Dawson by him. A one-roomed shack
In Prince Rupert cost $11 a month.
In Vancouver rooms could be got
from $6 to $8 a month. Owing to
the climatic, conditions there was a
loss of time.
Wages Too Low
All working classes complained of
wages being too low as compared
wth the cost of living.
In reply to'Aid. Pattullo, witness
said that working men In the city
who were married were paying $20
or $30 a month for places to live
in.   He was a single man.
In reply to Chairman Hilditch,
witness said that a' man with a wife
and say two children, would have
to pay $30 a month for rent.
Coal, witness said, w:is high. To
provide fuel for that house, suggested witness, would cost about
$3.50 a month. Coal oil would cost
80 cents.
It was then suggested that Mr.
Fisher should speak for the unmarried men and leave the other side to
some of the other speakers. He gave
the following figures: Room, $11;
board 80 cents a day doing his own
cooking; coal, $2.80; 3 gallons of
coal oil $1.20; overalls cost $1.25
a pair, and lasted in the sewer about
a month; other prices    of    clothing
were given by him.
A man would average about    20
days' work a month, or if Sundays
were taken out, 10 days or 17 days.
Married Man's Case
Mr. Casey representing the married men, submitted the average cost
of living here for one of that class.
Fuel, $11 a month; rent, $20; groceries, $26; butcher bill, $10;
clothes, for himself and four children, $10; life insurance, etc,. $9 a
month, making $86 a month without
any allowance for exigencies.
Averaging 22 days' work a month,
at $3.60, would give $70.20, which
left a deficit for the month.
These figures, Mr. Casey said
were taken from actual experience.
It was what it cost him.
Another's Experience
Mr. Carroll said lie came out $4 5
in debt during his experience here.
He had worked at drilling, which
would call for $3.50 a day anywhere
on the coast. Three pairs of mits
were used a monUi Rubber boots,
slickers and sou'westers had to be
obtained.    He supported his mother.
In reply to the chairman, he said
that clothes would cost $12.50 a
month. He had tried living in a
shack. He believed that hotel life
would cost less. It would cost $35
a month. He had paid $11 a month
for a cabin on Fraser street that
was not fit to live in. He burned
$4.20 worth of coal in the month.
His butcher's bill yas $21.80. This
month his cheek called for $66. If
he did not have money when he
came here he would have "been up
against it." Ketchikan paid $4 a
day for 8 hours. The cost of living
was about the same as here. In Juneau for $6 one could get a well-
funiished cabin. He could board for
about $20 a month, while coal cost
$S a ton. In Skagway he earned 50
cents an hour. In Dawson one could
get a cabin for $10 a month. Boarding in Dawson cost about $1 a day
in addition to the rent. It cost about
$35 a month in the winter and about
$45 a month In the summer.
In Dawson he worked for the
(riiggenhelms getting $4 a day and
board, with $2 or $2.50 taken off
for hospital fees.
In January he worked 22 days in
this city.
In San Francisco, board could be
got for $20 a month. The city paid
$3 for 8 hours.
Mr. Morse's Views
Mr. Morse said he came from Spokane. ' In Rossland, machine men
got $3.50, and muckers $3 a day.
A shack that cost $6 there would
cost $17 here. Board cost him ahout
$1 a day. Clothing In Prince Rupert
cost about 30 per cent more than in
Rossland.
In reply to the chairman, witness
said the men here did not want it
made permissable to work Sundays,
which sentiment was backed up
from  the gathering.
Mr. Casey, recalled, said that he
worked ten years In Rossland. In
the municipality of Rossland, $3.50
was paid for all work for the city.
TJie cost of living was higher In
Prince Rupert than In Itosslantl. In
his case, for flour, potatoes, rent,
fuel and shoes, the cost In Rossland
would be $13.85 as compared with
$31.75 in Prince Rupert.
Class Distinction
W. Fraser thought that after the
evidence produced, Uie rate of wages
would be increased. The cost of living; was increasing the world over.
Labor was organizing to bolter lis
condition. A part of the council
seemed to have been in favor of
granting increased wages to a class.
The Industrial workers, however,
were not ready to accept any concessions that were based upon a basis that would permit one class of
workers to have an advantage over
another class. The only fair way
was to give the work to the first
worker on the spot. It would not
be Just to base the giving of work
upon property ownership. It would
he more just to give the preference
to the man who had nothing.      The
only preference he would ask for
would be to give work to the man
who had a wife and little children
dependent upon him.
The chairman stated that the
council, he felt, were not going to
give any concession. If it was found
that the wages should be Increased
Ihey would be Increased because il
was right.
Aid. Hilditch asked If it would be
considered fair to the taxpayers to
give men "floaters," who worked
upon the Q. T. P, or elsewhere all
summer and came here in the winter, work on equal terms with the
resident worker.
Mr. Fraser said that while as a
business man he might prefer to
have *he money go to men who
would spend it here, it was not justice, however, and a man should bo
ait liberty to spend his money in Europe or elsewhere. He admitted that
from the standpoint of the taxpayer
tlie permanent resident should be
given the advantage.
T. Maitland
T. Maitland felt that married men
who paid taxes in the city should
have the preference in work. He
had never been In a city where as
small wages were paid as were paid
here.     In   Vancouver   he  was   paid

$3.50 a day to blast stumps. Shovellers got $3. This was government
work. The board cost $17 a month.
Last winter he worked where $3 and
$3.50 was paid. Board cost $5.50 a
week, with $1 a month for a room.
The largest cheque he ever got
here was $62 a month. He worked
with Mr. Casey in all kinds of
weather.
His wife told him that It ooet 50
per cent more to live here than in
other places.
Vancouver last year paid not less
than $3, lie believed.
Another  Married   Man
F. Neil recalled the early days of
Prince Rupert when not less than
$4 was paid. In Victoria he worked
for the waterworks and the street
car company. No man could do justice to his wife and family in this
city for $3 a day. There was the
cost of schooling the children. Coal
was $11.50 a ton as compared wth
$6 in Victoria and Vancouver.   Some

IN GENERAL HOSPITAL
Annual Meeting of the Association Decides to Perpetuate Name of Pioneer—Officers Elected for the
Ensuing Year—William Manson Thanked
for His Efforts.
The Prince Rupert General Hospital Association, at its annual meeting held Friday evening, decided to
perpetuate Hie name of John Houston in connection with the institution. The proposal at first was to
lit up a ward lo be known as the
John Houston ward. A subscription
list was opened at the meeting when
$272 was raised without going outside of those in attendance. It is
believed that at least $1,000 will be
subscribed, which may result in the
alteration of the plans by the Directors and something more extensive
than a ward may be designated under the name of the pioneer. To
W. G. Dennis belongs the honor of
the proposition, although It was put
forward at the meeting by M. M.
Stephens who in doing so said it was
a suggestion /rom .Mr. Dennis. The
raising of subscriptions towards the
memorial is in the hands of Mr. Dennis, who is to be assisted by a com,
mlttee   including   .1.   A.   Kirkpatrick
and G. R. Naden.
Officers for the ensuing year were

Vice President, O. H. Nelson.
Hon.  Secretary,  A.  Cuthbert.

M. Stephens, J. G. Scott, J. A.
Thompson and C. V. Bennett.
P. 1. Palmer and H. H. Clarke, as
appointees of the Provincial Government, were not eligible for election
at the meeting. They continue to
serve in that capacity, their appointment depending upon the Government.

HOUSTON MEMORIAL
IN GENERAL HOSPITAL

He congratulated the association
apon the new building completed. It
had been expected that they would
have been in before now, but It was
perhaps fortunate they were not, in
view of the extreme weather they
had had, which might have given
trouble. It would be necessary, he
thought, to make a general appeal
again to the public in the matter of
funds, lie also felt it would be necessary lo ask a liberal donation from
the city council in connection with
the work. The Ladies' Auxiliry, he
felt, deserved more than ordinary
Shanks for what they had done. He
also expressed his appreciation of the
services rendered by those in charge.
They had Becured Ihe most efficient
matron, he felt, to be found in Canada and with a good staff he expected the work would go on in firstr
«;lass style.
In retiring, lie extended his best
wishes for the future of the Institution. He looked upon the hospital
as a monument to the late John
Houston, who had donated the first
$ino towards it. He thanked the
citizens generally for their hearty
assistance in the work.
Financial  Statement
The Secretary-Treasurer, A. Cuthbert,  presented  his report upon  the
financial standing, which was as follows:
he would accept. The question .of a
managing secretary whose whole
lime would be gievn to the Institution, was left over to be taken up by
the new Board of Directors.
A. Cuthbert was eleted secretary-
treasurer of tlie Board.
Nominal ions for five directors
were then received, when the folow-
ing names were put in nomination:
J. A. Kirkpatrick, M. M. Stephens,

Hays, James Thompson, S. M. Newton, Frank Dowling, W. E. Fisher,
II. Hoffman, Mr. Clancy, H. Douglas,
VV. G. Dennis and J. E. Merryfield.
Messrs, Naden, Carss, Douglas and

He had been an employee of Mr.
Houston. He knew his worth and
felt this would he a fitting way to
remember him.
Mr. Newton heartily endorsed the
proposition. He felt it would be a
fitting way of honoring his memory.
Dr. Clayton, as an old admirer and
friend of Mr. Houston, would like to
see a subscription list started at
once to raise funds for the purpose.
Mr. Hoffman, who had proposed
that Mr. Houston should be honored
by the city, said that to Mrs. Hoffman belonged the honor of having
started the movement for a monument for Mr.   Houston.
J. G. Scott said he would give $25
to this fund.
Mr. Cuthbert thought this would
be the means of awakening interest
in the hospital.
Dr. Kergin did not think that anything would be more fitting than the
commemoration of the late Mr.
Houston in the way suggested. He
considered that a committee be appointed to take this up.
The motion of Mr. Stephens carried and it was suggested that Mr.
Dennis should be entrusted with the
work.
Mr. Dennis said he would undertake it, but would like a few others
to assist.
It was decided to place the matter
of raising funds in the hands of J.
A. Kirkpatrick G. R. Naden and Mr.
Dennis.
Mr. Naden moved a vote of thanks
to the G. T. P*. for the donation of
twelve lots to the hospital. The
Board of Directors had passed a
resolution, but he thought this reso-
tition from the general association
would be in keeping.
The resolution carried unanimously.
The meeting then  adjourned.

SEA DOG RETIRES
Admiral of the Fleet Lord Fisher is No
Longer With the British
Navy.
Sketch of the Career of One of tlie
Best Known Naval
Officers
Admiral of the British fleet, Lord
Fisher, first baron of Kilverstone,
and formerly better known as Sir
John Arbuthnot Fisher, has retired
from the navy under the age limit.
He was horn on January 25, 1841,
and is thus 70 years old.
Lord Fisher has been admiral of
the fleet, of whom there are only
three on the aetive list, since 1905,
having been specially promoted by
the King in excess of the authorized
number about thirteen months after
he had become first naval lord, in
order to save him from retirement
under the age limit by which admirals are compulsorily retired at 65
unless promoted to admirals of the
fleet, when their services are continued until 70.
Lord Fisher has had a most distinguished career although his last
few years have been marked by a
bitter difference between himself in
his official position and his colleague
Admiral Lord Charles Beresford. He
first came under public attention in
1882 as captain of the turret ship
Inflexible at the bombardment of Alexandra. The Inflexible was then the
Dreadnought of the navy and carried the biggest guns. He had seen
service in two wars before he was
twenty years old—the Crimea, as a
midsliipment and In China in 1859-
1860, as a lieutenant.
A brief record of his career is as
follows:
Entered the navy as cadet, June
13, 1854. Sub-lieutenant, January
25, 1860; lieutenant, November 4,
I860; commander, August 2, 1S09;
captain, October 30, 1874; rear admiral, August 2, 1890. Rear Admiral
Fisher served in the Baltic during
the Russian war (Baltic medal);
served in the Highflyer, Chesapeake,
and Furious during the Canton and
Peibo forts (China medal, Canton
and Taku clasps); president of a
committee for revising the gunnery
manual of the fleet, 1879; captain of
the Inflexible at the bombardment of
Alexandria, July 11, 1SS2; landed
with the naval brigade at Alexandria and adapted the "Ironclad
.train" and commanded It In the various skirmishes with the enemy;
granted the C. B. for this service
(Egyptian medal with olasp for Alexandria, Khedive's bronze star, Os-
manlch third class). He is in possession of the Beaufort testimonial.
He was appointed director of naval
ordnance and. torpedoes, October,
1886, to May, 1891. Aide-de-camp
to the Quen, June 18, 1887, to Au
gust 2, 1890; admiral superintendent of Portsmouth dockyard, May,
1891, to January, 1892. He was appointed a lord commissioner of the
admiralty and comptroller of the
navy, February 1, 1892; next commander in chief of North American
squadron in the flagship Barfleur,
1897-99, and was then appointed
commander-in-chief at Portsmouth,
the most Important shore command
in the British service. He became
first sea lord, a position he held
until recently, when he was elevated
to the peerage for his services.
Three great changes in the British
navy are associated with Lord Fisher's periods at the admiralty. He was
responsible as comptroller in 1S92
for the introduction of the Bellevue
boiler. This at first was a failure,
but the tubular boiler came to stay
in spite of the critics. His second
great reform was as second sea lord,
and involved the re-organizatlon of
the service by granting executive titles and ranks to the engineering
branches of the service. It was the
first recognition that steam had superseded sails. The third was his
scrapping of all the obsolete vessels
when he became first sea  lord.

EARTH'S  GOLD  SUPPLY
Canadian   Geologist   Gives   Interesting Sidelights on the Wealth
of the World's  Mines
Oil castors of chairs and sofas at
least once a year, and they will not
break off, but last nearly a lifetime. At the same time 'that the
castors are oiled, it is well to think
of locks and hinges.
Eggs are most easily digested
when eaten raw. If this is impossible, place them In a pan of nearly
boiling water, and stand at the side
of the stove for seven to ten minutes.
Hot water is a simple drink that
ought to be more popular, for It
promotes secretion better than
cold, and is at all times a stimulant of no mean nature. Taken the
last thing at night and In the early
morning this beverage is a boon lo
gouty people.
To cleanse a mattress remove the
hair from the tick, pick it apart,
then wash it in a lather, rinse In
cold water, diing in a thick cloth,
and dry in the sun. Either wash
the tick, or make a new case to
hold the hair when perfectly dry.
The oven in every kitchen does
not get the attention it requires,
considering what an important
cooking vessel it is! Many who are
particular as to every spot and pan
being scalded and scoured forget
this small iron room, which has the
power of absorbing and holding so
many odors and grease. Every part
of the oven not forgetting ithe roof,
should be scrubbed out at least once
each week, a long brush and plenty
of soda water being used for the
purpose.
That all the gold which has been
mined since the beginning of the
world could be contained in a hole
thirty-seven feet in depth and of the
same dimension in breadth, was the
statement made by Mr. J. B. Tyrell,
M. A., F. G. S., in the course of a
highly interesting and instructive
address ou "The World's Supply of
Gold" to the members of the Canadian Institute at Toronto.
In tracing the history on mining
from its earliest known days down
to the discovery of the Klondyke,
the speaker threw many interesting
sidelights on the depositories from
which the ancients had gleaned their
supply of gold. Though today, the
mines of Austrralia, Canada and
South Africa were generally looked
upon as the main sources of production, the lecturer emphasized that
Europe and Asia, alBO, in bygone
times had yielded immense quantities, a fact that was touched on by
the early Greek writers. In pjroof
of this, the lecturer quoted Herodotus' description of gold mining In
Hindustan, in which the ancient historian gravely told of ants, "as
largo as dog6," which threw up the
sand, rich with gold. Then, while
the ants, overcome by the noonday
heat, slept the sleep of exhaustion,
natives stealthily gathered the precious sand into sheepskin bags, using swift-footed camels to escape
pursuit by the irate ants. Thibet
was another district whose rivers
had run rich with gold, and, yet
another, was the mountainous region of the Euphrates to the north.
Where now stretched the arid Nubian desert, the slaves of Ptolemy
liatl died In their thousands In collecting for that otentate an annual
revenue of $20,000,000 from the
mines which were then in operation
in that  part of Africa.
Two thousand yenrs ago mining
was also conducted in Portugal, but
a dearth in Ihe supply of slaves had
lot! to the suspension of operations.
Following th,. death of the Emperor
Augusl us, Utile had been done to
increase the world's supply of gold
until Columbus' discovery of America had thrown open a rich, unmined
continent to the western explorer.
Brazil, Bolivia Peru and Mexico
alone added $187,000,000 to the
world's exchequer during the six-
teenth century, and altogether, from
1492 to 1848, $3,000,000,000, nearly all the produce of placer mining,
had gone to swell the world's supply The placer mines of America,
the lecturer said in conclusion, were
now nearly exhausted, but the development of mining machinery had
rendered the gold-seeker independent of placer deposits, for science
had shown how to extract the precious metal from Its most secret
hiding places. Tuesday, February 7, 1911
PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
VIEWS  OF PREMIER
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
Hon. Richard McBride Looks Upon the
Reciprocity Pro-
He Points Out Some of tile Injurious
Effects Upon Trade in
This Province
"While 1 do not wish to take an
alarmist view of the reciprocity arrangements that have been laid before the House at Ottawa it is abundantly evident that a perusal of the
proposals ihat if adopted they will
inflict very serious injury lo this
Province.
"As he knows the conditions prevailing here, surely we may look to
Mr. Templeman to protect our interests and to bring about some
modification of the very drastic
changes it is proposed to adopt.
"Take for instance the free entry
into Canada of fruit, dairy products
and agricultural produce generally.
This means an injury to our agricultural classes that will be most severe. In the first place it will put
the markets of the Prairie Provinces
in the hands largely of Americans,
who can, even under present conditions, compete there with our fruit
growers and with those of Eastern
Canada.
"In British Columbia the fruit industry, by great effort, is being
built up, and it must be remembered
that in the States to the south,
where the industry is an old established one, with very large areas of
cleared land, it costs very much less
to produce fruit than it does here,
wliere we are endeavouring to settle
our lands, and where the advantage
of a tariff enables us lo have a good
market in the Prairies. To remove
this advantage will most seriously
injure our efforts to settle and build
up  the Province.
"The same thing applies to the
other branches of agriculture, and
to make our market free to the
United States will not only reduce
greatly the prices our farmers are
now gelling, but in those things like
butter, eggs and poultry of which
our output has not yet equalled the
demand, the result will be that instead of importing from other parts
of Canada, these will be shipped to
us from Washington, Oregon and
California and the trade with Onta-
roi and other Eastern Provinces
will cease. This will not only affect
the Candaiati farmer but will lessen
the olume of traffic on our transportation lines and benefit those to
the south.
"The free entry of lumber from
the United States will also be most
serious to our timber industry,
throwing the market of the Prairies
largely into the hands of Americans,
and will also lessen the trade of
Canadian transortation lines.
"Looking over Ihe whole matter
as set out in the despatches from
Ottawa, I cannot see in what way
the proposals can be of any benefit
to Canada. The country has been
progressing well, times have been
prosperous and the people contented; and the advantages to be attained by the proposed changes are,
to my mind, wholly in favour of thti
United States. In Canada the effect
will be to disorganize trade conditions, injure our industries and our
Canadian lines of traffic, for the
benefit of the Americans."

HINTS FOR THE HOME
To clean pewter wash in hot water
and fine silver.sand, then polish
with a leather.
Warm the dish covers as well as
the dish, or you will often spoil a
carefully prepared meal.
Fill pin cushions with thoroughly dried coffee grounds, for the
needles will not rust In them. ,
The dustpan after use should be
emptied Into the kitchen fire, and
not into the dust bin.
Waterproof Glue.—Take some
glue, soak It in cold water, and
then by heat dissolve in it linseed
oil.
Grease spots on a wall may be
removed by putting blotting paper
on the spot and holding a hot iron
against it.
Waste buckets should have boiling soda water and soap stood in
them at least once a week, brushed
round thoroughly and dried in the
air.
Children's hair should never be
strained tightly off the forehead if
you wish it to grow thick. Receding hair in later life is often caused

Till; WAGE PROPOSALS
The sitiing on Saturday of the
special committee of the city council
charged with the task of considering
tlie question of whether there should
be an increase in the wages of the
men employed on the streets to 45
cents an hour, was educative. The
Industrial workers are to be congratulated upon the spirit the members showed throughout the session.
At no stage of the proceedings waa
there evidenced any desire to be die
tatorlal. On the contrary, they were
disposed to meet the question in a
practical manner and present arguments before the committee as to
why the increase should be made.
There 'was an entire absence of anything that could be interpreted as
threatening in its character in their
language a feature which it must be
admitted will strengthen their
oause very materially In the city.
The question as presented on Saturday is the "bread alio butter" one.
The city council 'has to decide
whether on the wages paid at present a workman is placed in a position where he can meet his essential
obligations and thus maintain himself and those dependent upon him.
It is certainly not the part of the
city to place the workmen In a position wliere they cannot maintain
themselves. Some one else in the
community, the grocer, the butcher
or other tradesmen are under those
circumstances going to suffer loss
tor men must live.
A difficulty which the committee
met with in the matter was that of
overcoming the effects relative to
existing contracts and the danger of
ihe council being open to the charge
of having broken faith with the contractors. This, it is true, is a difficult aspect of the case. The workers argued that the council did not
need to consider it for a moment
but should settle the whole question
on the merits of their demands.
On the other hand, the wages paid
by the city will undoubtedly set the
rates for the community and unless
there happens to lie an exceedingly
large influx of workers so that the
supply is far in excess of the demand
all other employers must pay as a
minimum wage 45 cents an hour. It
is a question which might have to be
considered whether industries might
be deterred from starting here in
view of a higher scale of wages existing than elsewhere.
While all these things will enter
Into the consideration of the matter
the council will nevertheless be
obliged, we think, to pay a wage to
its workmen that will enable them
to live comfortably, no matter what
that is. If there are local conditions that' make a higher scale of
wages necessary than is required
elsewhere the workmen are not to
blame for it. Tlie committee will
have to decide on all tlie evidence
whether there are peculiar local
Gondii Ions or not.
Increased population in a centre
always carries with It means for
cheaper living. Departmental siores
wjth tiller attendant evils In the
way of cheap labor may reduce the
prices of commodities so thai the
mass live cheaper at the expense of
those employed  in  these places.
Prince Itupei. in its industrial
stages must, in common with other
place-, pay the penalties thai go
with such conditions. Pbere will be
an absence m' some of the cheaper
articles of diet, in it. There will be
a dearth of cheap rooming places
Where larger returns are easily obtained at practically the same outlay.
Prince Rupert in its labor ques-
tion is facing one of Ihe difficult
problems among many which it is
having to oncounter.
WORKMEN REGISTER
The men In the city who are In
search of work are admonished to
register their names at Ihe city
hall. A book is provided there for
the purpose. At any time during
office hours they may record their
names and be placed In line for employment. It has been brought to
our attention that here has been a
dearth of married men to select
from at times during the last few
days when there was work offering.
If there are married men in the
community who want work they
should certainly take the trouble to
put themselves  in  the  list.

local church. For the two intervening years Wesley and the First
Methodist Church of Brandon will

very anxious to secure Rev. Mr. Mil-
liken. An invitation was extended
a few days ago to the Brandon pastor, Rev. J. C. Switzer, to take the
two-year term here, ar.u to the delight of the board, Mr. Switzer accepted the call, taking the pastorate
of Wesley Church at the close of the

LOCAL   WITNESSES
Collector   of     Customs    .Macdonald
and Chinese Interpreter Give
Evidence ill Vancouver
B. R. Macdonald, collector of customs in this city, has been a witness
in the investigation into the alleged
irregularities in connection with the
customs department at Vancouver,
relative to Chinese immigration. Mr.
.Macdonald took with him War Ben
Quin, a Chinaman from here, who,
however, was not able to give much
Information,
The local customs officer said he
had learned in Prince Rupert that
Chinese were corning into Vancouver
without paying the tax, through the
aid of the interpreter, afterwards
getting permits and transporting
them to China for use by Improper
merchants, who would bring in with
them boys described as sons, but
wlio were not heir sons. This state
of matters had been going on for
three years he was told by his informant, and the latter had come
with him from Prince Rupert to give
evidence. He had asked this man
whether he had any proof to sustain the charges, but had been told
that he knew it only by hearsay. In
this it was mentioned that the price
paid was ?100 to the Interpreter and
$20 for others.
Cross-examined by Mr. S. S. Taylor witness said the name of his Informant was Mar Ben Quin. Witness
admitted he himself had no proof,
lie only mentioned what he had
been  told.
Mar Ben Quin, a smiling Chinese
from Prince Rupert, who used to
live In Vancouver some years ago,
later explained   that he  had   heard
something on a \islt to this city
aboul a plan for "elegant landing In
Vancouver."    Bui prosed for details
he wished lo refer the mallei- to Mr.
Macdonald, as after telling things to
the latter, he said, he did not thing
much more about them. He remembered lasl April or May, hearing a
conversation about ?100 odd being
paid to get In. He also heard talk
about merchants getting In here.
Hut he did not know at all whom he
heard  it   from.
"What wns it?"
"Oh,   that   takee   too   long."
Reassured as that, witness said
his loss of memory was not caused
by fear; he was frightened of no one
but after lolling it to Mr, Macdonald be forgot if. all. He believed he
did tell Mr. Macdonald about a man
in I long Kong fixing up passports
and also as to the interpreter here,
but "Yoii ask Mr. Macdonald," concluded witness, "and he tell you."
Mr. McCrossan again tried to get
a distinct story from witness' own
remembrance,    but    witness    could

he had known he would have to

"And then burned It," suggested
counsel.
It was as impossible to get witness
to recover his loss of memory as it
was to interfere with his hearty
cheerfulness. It was all gossip, he
said, and he had quickly dismissed

AGAINST AGREEMENT
Conservative Club of Vancouver Declares
Itself Opposed to Reciprocity
Arrangements.
Hon.  \V.  J.  Bowser  Speaks  on  the
Subject at Recent
Meeting
At a recent meeting in Vancouver
of the Conservative Club, a resolution against the proposed reciprocity
agreement was passed, the resolution stating that "the 300 members
present view with alarm the proposed reciprocity agreement with
the United States, now under consideration, and declares that the
terms of the said agreement are inimical to Canada, and in particular
to British Columbia.
Attorney General's Views
Hon. W .J. Bowser, following introductory felicitations, took up the
question of the tariff agreement. He
believed that It might possibly be of
of some immediate benefit to certain
sections of Canada, and that on
general principles the good of the
Dominion as a whole should be considered above all else. But In this
mailer the best way for British Columbians to advance the Interests of
Canada was to first, look after then-
own interests and the terms of this
agreement are plainly Inimical to
the best interests of this province.
It was certain that Ottawa would
never look after them.
The production of fruit, for example, has ben encouraged in this
province because 11. was thought that
there was a vast market for it In the
northwest territory that could not
be affected by importations from
the United States. The removal of
the tariff wall will make it impossible for the province io compete
with the more organized and more
extensively cultivated country to the
south which is looking for an outlet
for its surplus .products. On the
other hand, numerous items imported from other provinces will be shut
out of British Columbia, such as
cattle, sheep, swine, dairy products,
etc., and will Inevitably come across
the international lino.
Province's Imports
"The Importations of British Co-
lubmia at the present time," said
Mr. Bowser, "amount to something
like $11,000,000, of which the International imports amount to about
$1,500,000. The ratification of this
agreement will mean practically
that the United States will find a
market in this province alone for
$9,500,000 worth of exports. Can
we then ever hope to compete with
Washington, Oregon and California
in the production of our own necessities?
"Also It is proposed to make a
sweeping cancellation of the duty on
fish. That will mean that American
fishermen can come into Canadian
waters at will, deplete them just as
the Fraser river has been depleted,
and dispose of their product either
in Canada or the United States at
will."
The Coal Question
In the matter of coal, it was the
opnlon of Mr. Bowser that Nova Scotia might find some advantage in
the proposed alteration in the existing tariff, hut that it was certain to
prove a disadvantage to this province. Regarding flour, the speaker
stated that the mills in the United
states are established, organized
and producing vast quantities fpr
which they seek a market. What
chance then, would there be for the
growth of the milling industry?
The same rule applies to farmers.
"At the present time," said Mr.
Bowser, "wo cannot raise a six-
ii'i'iiih part of what wo use," and it
was his belief Ihat Canada never
could do so if the proposed agreement should go into effect. "It Is,
of course, true," lie continued, "that
some few people might derive an
Immediate profit, hut It would be to
the detriment of the future development of the province."
Then followed a scathing criticism of the federal administration
led by Sir Wilfrid Laurler, which
has made possible such an agreement as that just negotiated ut
Washington. Mr. Bowser had no
doubt that the party which presented a solid front in this city in 10113
and again in 1009 would not fall
short of its duty in  the future.

The health officer of Vancouver
reporting to the council upon the
year's sanitary work, says with respect to scavenging: "I fear I must
repeat my report of last year, that
the lanes, vacant lots and back
premises, especially in the business
section of the city, are in a disgracefully dirty and insanitary condition, and if we are to maintain a
healthy city we must make a greater
and sustaned effort to keep It clean.
I wish it distinctly understood that
I in no way blame the scavenging
department, for I am of the opinion
that they are doing all that is possible w|th the material at. their command, but their present equipment
Is quite inadequate to cope with the
rapid Increase in the size of the city.
"One great, cause, I am convinced,
of our infantile mortality is the pollution or our food by flies, which
breed in garbage, and especially
horse manure, and in Ihis connection I regret to state that there are
no proper regulations governing the
keeping of manure, which at present
is allowed to accumulate on Ihe
on the ground at the back of stables,
proving a profitable breeding place
for files Further, I would suggest
that an antiseptic, which can be obtained In bulk very cheaply, he
placed in all our water carts for the
roads, and also that a more modern
method of dealing with the dust
nuisance he established. It has been
suggested in the past thai the whole
of the street cleaning and scavenging ho placed under a special committee, composed of the chairman of
the hoard of works, and tire and
police committees, thereby relieving
the board of works of an immense
amount of detail work, •>"■' I would

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
RECIPROCITY   PLANS
John Hendry of Vancouver is Not Satisfied With the Proposition.
He   Makes  Public  tlie  Message   Received from W. H. Rowley
on Question
The following telegram has been
receied by Mr. John Hendry, of Vancouver, formerly president of the
Manufacturers' Association, from
Mr. W. H. Rowley, president of the
Canadian Manufacturers' Association:
"Friday wire received. Association tariff committee sits Toronto,
next Tuesday to consider reciprocity
agreement and decide what action
to take. Will advise you results of
deliberations. Personally I view results of reciprocity with great alarm
for Canadian people and industries,
and shall oppose the agreement with
all my power and influence. You
may publish this."
This matter of a reciprocal agreement between the United States and
Canada after being discussed by the
tariff committee of the Canadian
Manufacturers' • Association, in
Toronto with reference to
the effect it will have on
conditions all over Canada, and after the deliberations of this committee they will probably make an official declaration with regard to what
effect they believe the proposed
agreement will have on industries
throughout Canada, and what their
stand will be when the matter is
brought up before the House of
Commons and Senate for ratification.
Mr. Hendry says there are numerous comments both in the United
States and in the Canadian press
which are conflicting In opinion as
to the benefit or otherwise to be derived from such a proposed agreement.
Mr. Hendry's Views
"If they know in the United
States the full purport of what the
proposed agreement Is we do not appear to know in Canada," he said.
"The proposed arrangement so far
as fruit and a number of other
things are concerned appears to be
plain enough, but the clause which
has refernce to fish is not as plain
as it might be. It would appear
that if fishermen from the United
States   can   come   into   our     fishing
grounds, catch our fish and take
them into both the United States
and Canadian ports free of duty, as
well as Canadian fishermen being
able to do this it will be detrimental
to the best interests of Canadian
fishermen on the Pacific, if not to
the fishermen on the lakes and Atlantic coast as  well.
"So far as rough lumber is concerned apparently It is to enter the
United States free, but nothing definite is said about shingles, whether
they are going to be admitted free
or not.
"I also read It that pulp and print
paper are to be admitted free into
the United States, if the provinces
lift the embargo on the exportation
of pulp wood. According to what
the Premier of British Columbia
says .there is not. much chance of
pulp wood being made exportable
from this province at least. There
are so many 'ifs' and doubtful features in the agreement that, it behooves those who have been given
the charge of administering the affairs of the Dominion to give the
matter the fullest and most careful
consideration before coming to a
conclusion."

WORKMEN'S  COMPENSATION
J.   H.   Hinvtliorntlnvaite's     Ilill
Amend Act Was Not in
Order
to
J. H. Hawthornthwaite, the Socialist leader, has withdrawn his bill
in the. provincial legislature to
amend the workmen's compensation
act, as the speaker declared it was
out of order since it called for an
expenditure of public revenue, and
could not be introduced by a private
member. By permission of the
House, however, he was allowed to
discuss the measure. Mr. Hawthornthwaite explained that the purpose of the bill was to place upon
the province the responsibility for
pending claims under the workmen's
compensation act unless it could
clearly be shown that the accident
was due to the negligence of the employee . If the government did not
see fit to introduce such a bill themselves, he hoped that they would at
least see fit to appoint a commission to inquire into it and see that
the labor Interest was represented
upon it.
The Premier complimented the
member from Nanaimo on the moderation of his address. He said .c
was a subject the government had
been looking into, and while not prepared to Introduce any bill this ses-

SPORTS
WRESTLING MATCH
Frank Gotch, the world's champion wrestler, and George Hacken-
schmidt, the "Russian Lion," are as
good as matched for another encounter, witli the title at stake. No papers have been drawn up and signed.
Not yet—but it was only a few days
ago that Gotcli affixed his signature
to a contract calling for a match
with Henry Ordeman. This fray is
scheduled to take place on February
81 h, wilh the scene in Chicago. Tlie
struggle is to a finish.
When Gotch gets through with
Ordeman he will arise and declare in
solemn tones: "1 am willing to deli-el ihe world's championship.
Bring them on, boys, Hackenschmidt
preferred." Then the promoters will
figure up their cash assets. For this
match will be another Jeff-Johnson
affair, oven if on a smaller scale.
Gotch and Hackenschmidt are admittedly headliners and therefore demand vast sums for their bows to
the public. There is no doubt that
they could at least get a guarantee
of $25,000, possibly much more, to
perform.
For It would be the greatest contest in wrestling circles since the
evening Gotch made Hackenschmidt
quit in this town and wrested the
title from the brow of the foreigner.
What makes this match almost certain is the clever manner in which
the managers of the champiuns are
moving over the chessboard of this
country.
Hackenschmidt, has been in Chicago quite some time, and has been
busy on the mat in all kinds of
matches. After the public realized
that the "Russian Lion" was in their
. midst the hero announced that he
was on a quest for his former laurels. Then in clarion tones Frank
Gotch asserted that his retirement
from the mat was on the up and up
and that he relinquished all his titles
and et t tern to Yussn Mahmout.
The bequest was really laughable.
Hack then demanded to know who
was that ihinout person. After that
little parry of arms comes the news
thai Gotch is going to see how good
he  is by  tackling Ordeman.
When the clash is over lay your

Hack,  for you  ".v '1  collect.

LABOR GIVES VIEW
ON WAGE QUESTION
(Continued From Page One.)
HARNESS RECORD
Nexl season the world's chani
pion trotter, Uhlan, 1.58%, will be
pointed for a mile in better than
two minntfs to wagon, ariven by an
amateur. Last season C. K. O. Billings, owner of Uhlan, drove the ebony coated son of Bingen, a mile to
waffon during the Grind Circuit
meeting  at  North   Randall   In   2.01,
hic'i eclipsed the previous world's
record for trotting geldings under
such circumstances. It was then felt
that I hl.-in could go faster than he
did but weather and track conditions
were against him every time he essayed a performance against time
when bite! ed to a wagon.
AI the present time Mr. Billings
owns the two fastest trotters in the
country, both to the sulky and to
wagon, Lou Dillon's record to sulky
being 1.68%; Uhlan's 1.58%, while
the mare's record to the wagon !•
2.00, and the gelding's 2.01, but hi
wpiiIs to own a trotter that holds a
record lo wagon better than 2.00.
At Memphis in 1903 Mr. Billings
drove f.ou Dillon a mllo with a runner in front of her 'n 2.00, while
last summer In the first, time he
ever pulled a rein over TThlun In a
regular public trial the tampion
wrested the crown held for several
years by Major Delmar for the tastiest wagon performance by a trotting
single men could live for $3 a day.
A married man could not do it. a It
was the married men who built up
the city.
Aid. Hilditch said lie did not think
that the members of the city council ever Intended to make any distinct ion as to classes.
Dr. Clayton said lie did not pro-
nose to be governed by any one
tdse's construction. He did not mean
to sliul unmarried men out of work,
lie would stand, however, by all he
had said during the campaign.
Mr. Carroll explained that while
he wot.Id he agreeable to married
men being given the preference, he
did not approve of two scales of
wages.
Dr. Clayton felt that a man like
Mr. Carroll who had others to support was in the same position as a
married man.
Mr. Labland felt that married men
should  have the preference,  but he
did not want it to go abroad in this
way or they would have too many
of that class for the work offering.
Geo. Shaw favored the 45 cents an
hour.     He  approved     of     its  going
through without any restriction.
Exit ling Contracts
The  chairman  asked  what  effect
the increase, if granted, would have
upon tlie contracts already In existence,      lie  would   like   a   statement
from the men in this respect.
Mr. Fraser said the workers dealt
with the city direct in this matter,
knowing that there could be no alteration in tlie contracts. The matter would he one between the workers and the contractors.
Aid. Pattullo asked if he thought
these men would continue to work
under the contracts if the increase
was made.
Mr. Fraser said he did not think
so. Labor was like any other commodity and was liable to be increased in price just as would be the
case with powder or anything else.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know if it
was not different, owing to the fact
that when these contracts were
made the contractors were obliged
to pay 37% cents an hour for an
eight hour day. If the council took
a course that would increase these
wages these contractors would be
placed in the position of losing
money.
Difficult Question
Mr. Fraser admitted that it was a
difficult question but he did not
think that the contractors would be
liable to lose money. They were, in
many instances making good profits.
Mr. Neil pointed out that the .?3
wage agreed lo in the contracts
was a minimum wage.
Mr. Carroll suggested that if any
of the contractors did not think
they could afford to proceed under
the new scale, the city should pay
them for what was done and then
take it over and complete it. The
city would then make money out of
it by buying the outfit.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know if it
was fair for the city, having entered
into a contract to take steps to make
the contractor give up the contract.
Aid. Clayton explained his position taken during the election. He
stood by it. He favored the city doing the work itself, purchasing the
equipment and employing men by
day labor.
Mr. Nell called attention to the
fact that the prices varied very
much when contracts were let. The
difference was accountable from the
fact that some men made allowance
for increased rates of wages that he
knew would come.
No   Undertaking
Mr. Casey pointed out that the
city never undertook to supply the
contractors with labor at 37% cents.
The city could not be held to have
broken its contract. It would make
no difference whether the city allowed the increase or not. If the
workers felt they could enforce an
increase they would move for it independently.
Aid. Newton did not Ihink the
members of the council intended to
do other than justly by the workers. He would defer his decision in
view of the wishes of the committee
who wanted to go fully into 11. lie
was more firmly convinced than ever
of the justice of the demands.
lie thought the-workers Bhould be
considerate enough to reach an amicable agreement with the contractors so that they would not be placed
in a worse position than they should
be.
Mr. Fraser wanted the contractors forgotten. If the demands were
justifiable they should be granted
Independent of the contractors altogether.
On behalf of .the workers he expressed thanks for the fair and
square hearing that had been accorded them.
Mr. Casey explained that McMor-
lie sublet work. He continued, at
45 cents an hour to work as a driller
being allowed to set his own price
by the new contractors.
The meeting then adjourned.
COMPLETES PURCHASE
.Main    Reef    Mining    Company    Has
Made Its Final Payment for
Property
• Major George E. Gibson, president
of the Main Reef Mining Company,
arrived in the city last Saturday
from Prince Rupert to confer with
T. J. Vaughan-Rhys, the company's
engineer, says the Portland Canal
.Miner. While in town he announced
to the Miner that the company had
completed the purchase of the property by making the final payment to
the vendors now, instead of July 15
next, when the bond expired. The
purchase price of the original Main
Reef group of two claims was ?27,-
500. The company owns four full-
sized and three fractional mineral
claims, a water power on Main Reef
creek and 320 acres of land in the
valley. A survey will be made preparatory to applying for a crown
grant. The company has done over
700 feet of underground work during the past year, besides a large
number of open cuts and surface
work. This development has exposed three veins, one of which has
been opened up for over 400 feet
which is producing ore running $50
per ton and upwards in gold, silver
and lead; the other two veins are of
lower grade. It is encouraging to
find a company in such a financial
position as to pay off in advance
its obligations for the property, and
with such good prospects for making
a producing mine, .n considerable
quantity of high grade ore has been
sacked and is now awaiting shipment.
The police court this morning occupied but a short time. The gambling charges preferred against the
Chinese were allowed to stand over
until Thursday so that In case of a
committment they may be disposed
of by the judge, who will then be
back to the city. Wallace, a colored
man, was convicted of vagrancy and
will be put under arrest unless he
quits the city. Tim O'Brien was
found to be of unsound mind and
will be sent to the asylum.
AGAINST RECIPROCITY
Mountain   Limilieniien's   Association
Passes  Resolution Condemning
Proposed   Programme
The Mountain Lumber Manufacturers' Assocation in convention at
Nelson a week ago, passed a resolution strongly condemning the reciprocity  arrangement.
Otis Staples, the president of the
association, in putting the motion,
said that as a native of the United
States and as one who hoped to lay
his bones in that country, he desired
lo protest as strongly as he could
against the proposed reciprocal tariff arrangement. He was In British
Columbia and was willing to do his
share in its development, but tin's
development would be rendered
much more difficult and unduly retarded if the proposed measure of
reciprocity were adopted. It would
constitute a blow to the industries of
this country for which tnere was no
justification.
