DRYDOCK WILL BE
GREAT UNDERTAKING
Some of the Details of the Floating Dock that
is Being Constructed at Hays Creek-Work
will be up to Date in Every Particular Requiring Immense Number
of Men to Construct.
TRAMPLED TO DEATH
It is evident that the plans upon
which the drydock at this port Is to
be built are not fully appreciated by
the majority of citizens. It will be
the largest dock on the Pacific Coast
when completed. It will have a lifting capacity of 20,000 tons, which
Is sufficient to take care of the largest steamer on the ocean. The dock
is to be Quilt practically altogether
CAUGHT IN  TIME
Fire Department Prevented What Night
Have Been Serious Outbreak
Last Night.
Morrison's Poolroom on Second Av-
enne Threatened—Considerable
Loss    From    Water
The fire department by a prompt
response to a call last evening prevented a serious fire in this city.
Late in the evening it was discovered that there was a fire in the
attic over Morrison's bowling alley
on Second Avenue. An alarm was
rung In and with the usual promptitude of the department there was
soon a stream playing on the flames.
To add to the difficulty Jf the
firemen there was little flame to be
seen, but on the contrary there was
an immense volume of smoke which
shut out from view the exact location of the trouble. It is supposed
that the fire started from some defect in the flue of the building. Fortunately, it was caught just in time
to prevent a serious outbreak.
The firemen had to make their
way into the attic and there attack
the seat of the trouble. Two streams
were brought to bear on the fire
and soon the danger was all past.
The loss will be considerable owing to the fact that it was necessary
,.0 pour an immense amount of water upon the seat of the fire before
it was brought under control. It
will take the proprietor some time
to repair all the damage done. Situated In one of the most densely
settled parts of the city, it was Indeed fortunate that the control was
gained as quickly as it was.

DROP LETTERS
Warning    to    Postmasters    Against
Scheme  for  Defrauding
the Mails
The postoffice department has issued a notice to postmasters warning
them against frauds alleged to have
been perpetrated by some business
houses and companies by which the
service has been done out of considerable revenue. These companies,
It Is said, having a number of letters
for delivery in one city, Instead of
affixing two-cent, stamps as required
by the regulations, use one-cent
stamps and send the letters in a
bundle by express to the city to
which they are destined, whore they
are posted as drop lettei'R.
The notice calls attention to tlie
Illegality of this scheme by which
half the revenue due to the department is lost. Postmasters are
warned against allowing the delivery
of such letters as drop letters on
pain of having to shoulder the responsibility for the loss of revenue.
J. E. Gilmore is in the city from
Naden Harbor fish cannery. The
work on flie building, he says, is
going forward satisfactorily and already they are canning spring salmon. The sockcyes are also running
there now, Mr.  Gilmore says.
Alderman "Hammy" Douglas yesterday cerebrated his fifty-seventh
birthday, receiving the well-wishes
of his numerous flleudS.
upon the site at Hays Creek, which
will mean much for the city, as there
will be employed hundreds of skilled
mechanics during the period of construction.
The plans provide for the construction and completion of the shore
plant first of all. This will be carried out before the actual work of
constructing the eTbck begins. By
this means the machinery of the
plant will be used to construct the
pontoons that are to be such an
essential feature of the dock.
At the present time there are test
piles driven at the site in a line with
what will be the outside of the shipyard. Outside of that there will be
the floating dock.
The dock will have an over-all
length of 604 feet 4 inches, a clear
width of 100 feet and a width over
all of 130 feet.
The lifting power is the aggregate of twelve pontoons of timber,
constructed each 130 feet long, corresponding to the width of the dock,
44 feet wide in a direction corresponding to the legth of the dock,
and 15 feet deep. These pontoons
will be united by steel side walls.
These are divided so that the pontoons may be used under ordinary
conditions as three separate docks,
one of six pontoons and two of three
pontoons each.
The machinery -for pumping the
dock will consist of a centrifugal
pumps operated by electric motors,
the capacity of the equipment being
sufficient to pump the entire lifting
power of the dock In less than two
hours.
They will have a crown of 3 inches
at the centre and will have 15
fl'usses spaced on 3-foot centres.
There will be a centre watertight
bulkhead 12 inches thick, and above
this bulkhead the centre will be reinforced for carrying keel blocks.
There will be three partial bulkheads on each side to stiffen the
pontoons. All diagonal braces are
heavily reinforced with anchor
stocks. The arch brace is made up
of planking through-bolted with
with screw bolts, and is intended to
take the reverse stresses when the
dock is floating light. This is a
considerable amount when it is considered that the wings are superimposed weights carried at the extreme
end of the trussees, supported by
an evenly distributed pressure over
the entire bottom. Six xl2-lnch deck
beams are worked across the upper
and lower truss members, carrying
the 5-inch deck and bottom planking parallel to, and reinforcing the
truss members for the maximum
stress. This construction also makes
it possible to get in double vertical
tie rods alongside of bulkheads in
such a manner that they may be replaced at any time. The whole
structure is made watertight by
caulking with white pine wedges.
To protect tlie exterior from to-
redo and other marine worms, it is
first thoroughly graved with tar poisoned with arsenic, then sheathed
with two layers of hair felt, each
thoroughly saturated with tar and
arsenic, nnd then with creoBoted lumber, also treated with arsenic and
thoroughy secured with galvanized
nails. This treatment, together with
the facility for inspection afforded
by the possibility of detaching and
docking any pontoon, has been
found to give satisfactory protection.
Each pontoon will require approximately 330,000 board feet of lumber or a total, including outrigger
or prow on the end pontoons, of
j 4,000,000 board feet. The entire bill
of lumber will be of selected grade
I of Oregon pine or Douglas fir.
It Is the Intention to have these
I pontoons built upon tlie launching
platform under the building shed, using the tools and equipment provided for the plant. Sufficient room
has been allowed to build three pontoons  at  the  same  time.     As  soon

Crowd     in     Panic     That     Ensued
Knocked    Down   Helpless   and
Trampled Them Under Foot
Madrid, May 28.—When the film
picture show at Villareal exploded
103 persons, mostly women and
children, were knocked down and
trampled to death during the panic
that followed.
as they are launched they will be
moved into the basin between thS
pier and drydock platform and temporarily united together in correct
relative position by timber clamps,
when they will be ready for the
erection of the steel wings.
The steel wings consist of channel and angle frame on 3-foot centres corresponding to the trusses of
the pontoons, and a covering of plating varying in thickness from 1-2
to 5-16 inch. The construction is
greatly faci'itated by reinforcing the
plating against water pressure on
the outside by horizontal angles. This
does away entirely with with troublesome intercostaj connections and
gives the material used very much
greater value in the construction as
a  whole.
There will be required about
2,200 tons of steel. Where the wing
meets the deck of the pontoon there
is a steel shoe secured to the frame
of each pontoon and a corresponding shoe riveted to each frame of
the wing. These are connected together by a steel link about 15
inches long and pins, the upper one
of which is tapered 1-2 inch to tlie
foot. The driving of this pin wedges
the pontoon and wing together. At
the point of contact, the bottom of
"thewing is reinforced by a 12xl-2in.
plate and make watertight by canvas packing saturated with red lead.
On the outer side of the wing the
method of securing is similar, except that the shoe on the pontoon
Is replaced by a cast-steel strap
through-bolted to the pontoon.
Provision is made for multiple
punching on uniform centres of 3
inches and 6 inches throughout, and
the intention is to have the material
fabricated in Europe or the eastern
part of the United States, all frames
assembled and shipped by water to
Prince Rupert. The erection of the
first section is to be commenced as
soon as the first three pontoons are
launched, the compressed air machinery of the plant being used for
pneumatic   riveting.

MINING   MEN  HERE
Tlie District Within Easy  Reach  of
Here Is Being Exploited  by Important Investors Who Are Looking  Over  Prospects
DELAY UNLIKELY
It is Expected that the Drydock Work
Will go Forward at
Once.
Every steamer that arrives in the
city now brings Its quota of mining
men anxious to investigate the possibilities of this northern part of
the province with its wide reputation
as a mining area.
Among) the latest to reach the city
and proceed to the interior were C.
B. Clark of Montana and J. Morgan
Clement of New York, who are interested In seeing what this part of
the world has to offer in the way of
minerals. These men have gone into
the interior to look over the country
and report to other interests in the
east.
Wayward Youths
Two young men, on charges of
frequenting the restricted area of the
city, were yesterday morning found
guilty in the police court and sentenced to fines of $10 each. This
morning two young women who were
found there will be called upon to
answer charges. They are now out
on bail. One of these girls has
been brought up in the city and is
very young. She has been warned
by the police magistrate on a former
occasion and an effort was made to
work some reform in connection
with her behavior. She, however,
continued to give trouble to the police and accordingly has been arraigned invthe court for punishment.
Washington, May 28.—The report
of the commission from the United
States Senate on the Titanic disaster was made public today. It declares that the indifference on the
part of the steamer Californian
caused heavy loss of life, as practically all the victims could have
been saved had Captain Lord gone
to  the  rescue   when   the   new   ship
gave its signal of being  in  distress
but a few miles away.
The British Board of Trade is
also held partly responsible for the
disaster owing to its lax regulations
and the "over-ripe" administration
on the part of the boards are censured and more modern methods
for the safeuarding of the public
are suggested.
A  STRONG FORCE
Ritchie & Agnew Have a Large Number of Men at Work in Vicinity
of Goose Bay
There is every evidence of activity
in the direction of Portland Canal
this year. Ritchie & Agnew have
two forces at work surveying there
for private parties. The two bodies
that have been sent out by them
number about twenty-two men in all.
They will spend some weeks In
that part of the district. They left
a few days ago. J. Fred Ritchie
himself has gone with them to lay
out the work.

Vessel to Pieces
Buckingham, Que., May 28.—As
the steamer Mildred approached the
lock gates from above this morning the engines refused to work,
with the result that the steamer and
a scow in tow were drawn into the
outer current of the Lievre 'River.
They both went over .the dam backwards. The crew saved themselves
by jumping from the vessel. Water
flooded the steamer, causing the
boiler to burst, and the vessel was
blown to pieces.

Samuel Watt of Victoria West,
charged with keeping a vicious dog,
pleaded "tried ami acquitted" when
his case was called in Victoria. Mr.
Aikman, appearing for him, declined to put in any oilier plea, as his
| client had been tried before .Magistrate Jay under the bylaw and had
been acquitted. Tlie present charge
is brought under the Vicious Animals Act. The evidence of a child
who was bitted by Ihe dog was heard
and the case was remanded for one
week. The dog has been scni to
Parson's Bridge.

The legal aspect with respect to
the clearing of the lots on the corner of Second Avenue and Fifth
Street was dealt with by the city
solicitor, Fred Peters, K. C, at the
council meeting on Monday night on
request. Mr. Peters said that after
looking into the subject from the
standpoint of the liability of tlie
•city, having in view the fact that
if there was danger from there being oyerhunging loose rocks on ihe
street, the liability would be the
city's. This is due to the fact that
the danger was created through the
city's work. The cutting of the.
streets had created the danger. If
anything happened the city would
be held liable. He had no quest ion
as lo this.
Alderman Morrissey then asked
with respect to the McLeod lot,
where, it was set forth, that the
blasting of the city on three sides,
the streets and the lane, there had
been a danger created to tlie Albert
Block, and (here was a liability as
far as the city was concerned.
Mr. Peters said that he would
say with respect to that that il was
on a different basis altogether. He
j said that there was no likelihood
that the rock danger was due to
the city blasting. It was due lo the
fact that the owner of the block
chose to blast out a lot and build
close enough to the rock left to create the danger, if there was any
danger. He felt that the city was
in no wise liable Iu that matter.
Alderman Maitland said there was
no danger from the rock, he was
sure.

T1IM   BYLAWS
On .lime 20 there are to be three
money bylaws submitted to the people for endorsement. Tt seems evident that there must be provision
made for the floating of a loan in
connection with these undertakings
if the liabilities of the city are to
be met. Yesterday we published the
figures in connection with the two
propositions, that of the telephone
and the electric light, for which the
figures  are  forthcoming.
There will be a desire on the part
of the public to know just what
the procedure is to be in connection
with the debentures if the bylaws
carry. The passing of the bylaws
will not in itself improve the situation. It will authorize the issuing
of debentures; but what course is
to be followed then by the council
to realize upon these debentures?
Will the bank be told in effect what
the mayor a few weeks ago said
he proposed to say to that
institution, namely, "to go to
Jericho," and the debentures
placed on the open market, which
is contrary to the advice of all concerned in the matter of municipal
bonds. Or Is the council assured
by the bank that there will be a
further advance on the assurance of
these debentures being available. The
public will probably want direct information on this point as the ability
to issue debentures will in itself be
insufficient to relieve the taxation
unless there is some assurance that
there is to be funds available at once
on them. If the results are to be
only theoretic, then the public should
be given the information now and
not be led To expect something that
will not be forthcoming when the
bylaws have been passed. The
members of the council, the mayor
and the chairman of tho finance
committee in particular must have
some policy in the matter and
should give the public the information so that they may act intelligently in the matter. If the voting
of the money is not going to give
any redress in the matter of taxation and is not going to allow any
additional work to be proceeded with
then the passing of tlie bylaws would
seem to be an idle move. If on the
other hand there is some redress
to be had it would appear to be a
necessary move to pass them.
The figures that have been prepared in connection with the telephone and the electric yght propositions are such as to cause citizens
to stop and contemplate whether the
owning of these franchises and the
administration of them by councils
is really worth .the expense and the
work that Is connected with them.
If llicse bylaws pass the city's credit
lias been locked up to the extent of
$132,000 In providing an electric
light system I hat is for the most
Part a temporary one. to be replaced
a little later by a plant estimated
to cost another $1+0,000. There will
then be a debt of $272,000 upon the
city to provide for the lighting and
power of the city only in part, for
i: Is admitted that the city will very
soon outgrow the production.
While the city is carrying that
burden and lessening Its borrowing
power to thai extent tlie citizens are
paying for light and power fully
as, much as would be paid to a private company that would be subject
to the restrictions that could be
Placed upon it by the city to safeguard   its   interests.
With respect to the telephone
proposition the same arguments do
not apply, at least to the same extent. In a limited way, however, it
is questionable whether the situation
is not very similar. The Individual
user of these ultillties Is obliged to
pay as much as he would have to
pay to a private company and at the
same time there is worry and bother
to the city and a diverting of the
attention and funds from the streets
that must be maintained.
In the matter of the electric light
it was certainly never supposed at
the outset that there was to be an
expenditure approaching that which
is now In sight. The spending of
$ 132,000 upon a temporary equipment, even if there is allowance for
the fact that there is part of it in
the matter of the pole line that will
be available for the permanent system, seems a lot of money, especially
at this stage of the city's history.
II is questionable If In one's own]
business such an expenditure would
be advised when the advantages arid
the needs of the hour in other lines
are considered.

REDUCE  PASSENGERS
New  Ruling by United'States Inspectors as Olltc f   Titanic Disaster Affects Coast Vessels
An outcome of the Titanic disaster
has been measures taken by the United States supervising inspector of
steamships at San Francisco, John
K. Bulger, to cut down the passenger accommodation allowed on
steamers plying on the Pacific from
20 to 33 per cent. The accommodation allowed on steamers plying to
British Columbia ports and Seattle,
particularly the steamer Queen,
which is replacing the Umatilla on
the Pacific Coast Steamship Company's service, and the Umatilla,
have been effected.
A reduction of 200 has been made
in the list of passengers these vessels are to be hereafter permitted to
carry. The ruling will affect all
trans-Pacific steamers plying from
United States ports. All the vessels affected have ordered more lifeboats, but until they instal them they
will be allowed to carry no more
passengers than they have lifeboat
space for.
Among the vessels affected are the
Yale and Harvard, on the San Francisco-Los Angeles run, whose lists
have been cut from 700 to 247; the
steamer Siberia, operating 'between
San Francisco and the Orient, whose
list was reduced from 1,250 to 890;
Roanoke, between San Francisco and
Portland, whose list of 500 has been
cut In two; and the steamers Queen
and Umatilla, between San. Francisco and Seattle, required to reduce
their lists 200.

1     THE COST OF RADIUM     f
i t
<"5"3» *5* •S.*** *!• •> ♦> *•>►> *5» *> •** •>•>♦> #'>»>'-:■'!. -.
An International commission composed of scientific men to whose
work the most important discoveries
In radio-activity are due, is about to
meet In Mme. Curie's labratory In
Paris, to confer on the definite adoption of an international standard of
radium.
The creation of the standard was
determined upon by the Radiological
and Electrical College In 1910, when
the following commission was named
to consider the question: Germany,
Profs. Halin and Geitel; England,
Profs. Rutherford and Soddy; Austria-Hungary, Profs. Meyer and
Sweidler; United States and Canada,
Profts. Boltwood and Eve; France,
Mme.  Curie and Prof. Debierne.
The commission requested Mme.
Curie to undertake the task of preparing the international standard,
which she completed in August last,
using chloride of pure radium, prepared and specially purified by herself. The standard is established by
a small tube of thyi glass about
three milimetres (a little more than
one-tenth of an inch) in diameter
and three centimetres (over one
Inch) in length, which contains a
carefully weighed amount of chloride of pure radium—about two centigrams, or seven-tenths of an ounce.
The tube is sealed and a small platinum wire runs into the glass to
"give electric communication between
the interior of the tube and the exterior to carry off any electric sparks
which the radium rays might produce and which might possibly break
the tube.
How It Will Be Weighed
This little tube of radium, which
will be used as the international
standard, will probably be placed in
the International Bureau of Weights
and Measures. Secondary standards
will be prepared in various scientfic
or official laboratories and their
amount of radium will be established
by comparison with the international
standard, by determining the Intensity of the rays which have traversed
several millimetres of lead,' the rays
so used being the gamma rays. Various secondary' standards will be
measured by the members of the
commission at their approaching
meeting.
The radium salts used for preparing the international standard have
been taken from a small supply of
radium which belongs to Mme.
Curie, and is not only used by her
in her personal researches, but is
also placed at the service of those
who work in her laboratory. The
members of the commission have decided to ask their governments to
reimburse Mme. Curie for the value
of the radium employed in preparing
the standard.
The need for a radium standard
has been felt for some time by scientific workers' in radio-activity. Owing to the difficulties in purifying
radium important differences exist
between the tubes which are used in
different laboratories as standards.
In addition.to this purely scientific
interest, there is a commercial and
industrial demand for a standard.
Radium Is the most costly matter
sold commercially. Its present price
is 400,000 francs for a gramme of
bromide, or about $2,250,000 an
ounce avoidupolr, and the price is
likely to increase. Up to the present time i» has been difficult for
buyers and manufacturers to agree
on the real quantity of radium contained In the article sold. When the
international standard is officially
adopted commercial products will
naturally be compared with this
standard.
Most of the radium manufactured
is employed by doctors and they naturally will be glad of a means to
compare tlie quantity of radium they
use with  a  fixed  standard.
Among other decisions taken by
the International Commission on Radium was Ihe adoption of :i particular unit for measuring tlie amount of
radium emanation, the radio-active
gas, the life of which is essentially
ephermal and which is continually
being produced by radium. H is to
this emanation that the curative
properties of certain miners waters
is attributed.
The unit adopted was the quantity of emanation in equilibrium
with a gramme of radium. This unit
received the name of a curie. A
secondary unit, a thousand times
smaller, corresponding to a milli-
grame of radium, was named a milli-
curle.
SPORTS
A WHITE HOPE
It is doubtful if Alexander Pope
j had the present pugilistic situation
in mind when he wrote, "Hope
springs eternal in the human breast."
The chances are that ho did not,
since Pope lived before the reign of
Jack Johnson. Nevertheless, the
lines hold good today, and hope
springs eternal that some marvelous
White Hope will he discovered to
wrest from the gigantic negro the
title of champion of all ring champions. This is but natural since the
fistic supremacy of the white race
has for centuries gone unchallenged.
When conditions changed after the
memorable event that made Reno
known around the world, the cry
went up for a new hope, and several hundred responded.
Sad lo relate, each and every one
was found wanting. Today Jim
Flynn poses as the man who will
restore the ring prestige of the Cau
casian race, and has named Inde
pendence Day as the time when he
will remove the palling fetters. Few
can be found, however, who believe
that Flynn Is anything but an idle
boaster and an imposter. For a short
time the heir-apparent was thought
to have been found in Carl Morris
The Sapulpa engineer flashed like a
meteor across the pugilistic firmament, but he proved as harmless as
the  tail  of  Halley's comet.
Big and strong, he withstood the
pounding of Jim Flynn, Jim Stewart, Tom Kinney and others of the
same calibre. None could knock
Carl off the pedestal whicli nature
provided him with at the time of
his birth. On the other hand, Carl
could not produce anything in the
way of a wallop that looked as If It
would even scratch the mahogany
mask of Johnson. Carl proved to be
a sort of negative quantity in pugilistic affairs. His best recommendation was gameness and ability to
swing along under unlimited punishment.
It happened, therefore, that when
the wires flashed forth irom Springfield, Mo., the message that Carl,
the mighty, had been knocked out by
a virtually unknown fighter named
Luther McCarthy, the populace sat
up and said in a whisper, "Perhaps
'tis the real white hope at last." It
was only a whisper, sine the populace has grown hoarse long since
shouting about hopes that proved
hopeless. Still, McCarthy appears to
be worth a whisper, and later we
may have a chance to shout, for
Luther may grace one of our local
rings before the summer is spent.
It is not thought that McCarthy
is ready to lead an insurrection
against Johnson's dynasty, but he
appears to be a person of promise.
So far as physical requisites are concerned, Luther seems to assay close
to 100 per cent. He weighs 208
pounds when in condition, and stands
6 feet 1 1-:' inches. He is but 20
years old and still growing, but the
most important feature of his prospectus is the fact that he looks and
acts like a fighter. Some things
have to be taken on faith In Luther's
case, since he has not been seen in
the east.
Western pugilistic experts believe
that he is a real hope. Reports have
reached the east to the effect that
McCarthy is built somewhat along
the lines of Bib Fltzsimmons. He
has powerful shoulders, neck and
torso, while his legs are rather small
for a man of his size. He Is splendidly muscluer, and shows no trace
of being muscle fcound, but is rather
of the loose, flexible type. Furthermore, he has an excellent repertoire
of blows for a beginner and plenty
of power In his punches, as Ills defeat of .Morris showed. He stands
straight and boxes cleverly. To date
his best blow is a right nppercut
delivered close iu whicli is said to
have greater lifting power than thai
possessed  by  Johnson.
In his bout with Morris he demonstrated that he could stand punishment, for Carl landed some powerful
blows, but these never slowed up McCarthy at all. In fact, ringside critics all agree that he fought even
faster after testing Carl's heaviest
fire. No one believes that McCarthy
is ready to challenge Johnson as
yet, but a year of careful training
under the tutelage of experienced
boxers and trainers may develop the
long expected hope.

GALLANT ENGINEERS

Titanic's Force   in   the  Engine  Room
Behaved in Praiseworthy
Manner.
Story    of    What    Happened    Below
When Great Liner Went Down Is
One of Surpassing Heroism
The London Daily Mail prints an
account of the fate of the gallant
engineers of the last steamer Titanic, supplied by a passenger of the
Lapland, which brought home the
survivors.    The Mall says:
"It is a tale of surpassing heroism
—of tho thirty-six engineers who
went calmly to their doom under the
orders of Chief Engineer Bell In a
desperate effort to save the ship,
of the oilers and stokers who remained unflinchingly at their posts
In a moment of mortal peril.
"There was no panic among the
'black squad'; all did their duty to
the   last,   like   Englishmen.
"All the watertight doors were in
perfect order at the collision. Not
one jammed.
"Two people on board must have
known from the moment the Titanic
struck that she was doomed—Mr.
Andrews the constructor, and Chief
Engineer Bell. Both went down
with her.
"Leading Stoker Threlfall states
that after the collision his stokehold,
No. 4, was dry. The fires were
burning as usual. The watertight
doors were closed, but they were
opened to bring through an engineer with a broken leg, and were
closed after him again. Nos. 1, 2,
and 3 stokeholds were also dry. Up
to shortly before 2 a. m. 'everything was going on just as usual
below; the lights were burning and
all pumps were working as if nothing had happened.'
"It was then that the order was
given by the chief engineer to the
men to go on deck. They found
the boats gone, the ship down by
the head, her stern up in the air,
and her hull with a heavy list to
port. The captain ordered all articles that would float to be thrown
overboard, and gave the command,
'Every man   for  himself!'
"Threlfall adds that shortly after
he took to the water he gained a
raft and climbed upon it. There
were several firemen standing on it.
Chief Engineer Bell swam up, and
they called to him, 'Come on board,
Mr. Bell; we'll pull you on board.'
He shouted, 'No, men, your raft
might capsize. I'll be all right and
find something else. Good bye,
men; God bless you.'
"Oiler A. Whyte states that shortly after the accident the emergency
dynamos were started to run the
electric light in case the engine room
should be flooded. He was sent on
deck by the engineers at 1:40 a. m.,
saw the last boat leaving, and slid
down the falls to her. The engineers were still in the turbine room.
"Leading Stoker F. Barrett states
that at the order of Engineer Harvey he drew thirty-six fires In the
boilers. Engineer Shepherd broke
his leg by falling in a manhole. His
only sorrow was that he could render no aid to save the ship. Barrett was sent on deck at 1:30 and
was ordered to take charge of No.
13 boat. Out of ninety-one men in
his watch only sixteen were saved.
"When the water came pouring
In," said one of the firemen, "one
of the engineers shouted, 'You chaps
have done your best; get up on
deck.' I was the last man to go
up the ladder, and when half-way
up I turned to look at the engineer,
who had just shouted, 'Good-bye.'
Even as I looked the steel floor of
the engine room pussagos buckled
and the engineer was shot down the
hole clean through the bottom Of
the ship.''

MARKET COMMISSIONERS
Advantages   Which   Rave   Followed
i'toiii the Securing of Exncl
Information
3
similar market commissioner to represent Ontario in the west. Even
though only a limited number of
fruit growers ship fruit to the west
during the early part of the season,
it may be expected that the request
of the fruit growers will be granted.
While the goverenmenl is about it,
it should consider the advisability
of appointing a second commissioner
to visit and report regularly from
the leading fruit markets in tlie
east.
"The great bulk of the tender
fruit raised in Ontario is marketed
in Ontario or in Montreal. Many
hundreds of fruit growers consign
fruit to the fruit markets in the large
centres and to the smaller cities as
well. Often gluts occur on these
markets because the growers, not
being in touch with one another,
ship too largely to a few markets.
Much of the fruit, also, goes forward poorly packed, and quantities
of it are injured in transit. Were
the government to appoint a market
commissioner it would be his duty
to visit these markets, as often as
possible, and interview the local
fruit dealers and railway officials.
He would report the results weekly
through the press and by special reports to the fruit growers and fruit
growers' associations. By comparing the condition in which Ontario
fruit from different districts reached
the dealers, as well as fruit from
points in the States, many valuable
points would be learned by the growers, as the reports of such a commissioner would be followed carefully.
"The amount of fruit marketed
by the fruit growers of British Columbia in the western markets is
such a small fraction of the quantity
of fruit marketed in the east by
eastern growers the benefits that
would follow the work and recommendations of two such commissioners may readily be seen. Any one
who rfead the weekly reports that
were published last year by British
Columbia's market commissioner
will realize the need that exists for
action being taken along this line
by  the  Ontario  government."

HUDSON BAY TERMINUS
Decision  to  Be Benched  This  Summer as to Which Port Will
Be Used
The department of marine and.
fisheries will Increase the strength
of the expedition which is to go
by sea to Hudson Bay this summer
to determine the respective merits
of Port Nelson and Fort Churchill
as a terminus for the Hudson Bay
Railway. The steamers Minto and
the Arctic both go north, and are
now being overhauled for the trip
and equipped with wireless telegraph
instruments.
The Arctic will sail on June 15,
having on board a party headed by
W. E. W. Jackson of the Toronto
Observatory for the purpose of making a thorough study of the magnetic conditions of the Hudson Bay
and Strait in the interests of future
navigation.
The Minto, sailing some ten days
later, will go down the coast and
examine the harbors of Churchill
and Nelson. The Minto will be in
command of Captain Anderson, who
will have with him Lieutenant
Knight and the well known Newfoundland navigator, Capt. Bartlett.
The ships will remain In the Hudson Bay waters until driven out by
the ice,,#nd will bring back definite
information as to the length of the
navigation season. A map indicating the existence of a good harbor
at Fort Churchill has been prepared
by  the  marine  department.
If Fort Churchill is selected, Ontario will have a right of way to
the harTjor under the arrangement
made  last summer.

Acting under instructions from
the City Council, I call attention to
the necessity of lot holders, under
agreement from the Grand Trunk
Pacific Development company, to
complete their titles, and have the
same registered in the Land Registry
office before July 1st next. Owners
whose lots are not registered by that
time run the risk of being unable to
vote in Municipal matters, or being
eligible for the office of Mayor or
