Local Resident Places 90,000 Acres With British Capitalists Who Intend to Put Settlers Upon It—
Nearly Half a Million Involved in
the Transaction.
Northern British Columbia continues to occupy an important place
ln the public eye. There is no doubt
that the settlement of the vast agricultural stretches in this part of the
country will be accompanied in an
infinitely shorter time than similar
areas in southern British Columbia.
An advantage which the north possesses is that there are much wider
districts of arable land in this part
of the country as compared with the
Bouth and the cost of clearing is far
The latest deal and one of the
most Important that has been put
through is the sale of 90,000 acres oi
land on the Kltwancool river in the
Naas Valley to Mr. Norton Griffiths,
M.P., of London. The sale was made
by H. N. Boss of this city through his
Victoria agent. The transaction represents $450,000.
The Initial payment has been made
by Mr. Griffiths and his associates.
Mr. Griffiths will set apart a special area for suitable immigrants
from his own constituency of Wednesbury. The company he has organized has a number of prominent
shareholders, including Mr. Harry
Brittain, a well known London jour-
' nalist, and the Earl of Dunmore, who
accompanied him to the coast last
summer. This company has already
acquired large land holdings in the
Bulkley and Nechaco valleys In Central British Columbia as well as extensive holdings in the Okanagan
Valley and in the prairie provinces.
Its land holdings In Saskatchewan
alone comprise 40,000 acres. Several
parties of emigrants will he despatched nxt spring to British Columbia.
Mr. Griffiths intends to promote
a movement for locating British ag
riculturists on various proposed
colonies in this province. The land
will be sold on easy terms and tha
new settlers will be assisted in every
way to get a good start in their new
The land which Mr. Boss has disposed of is described as of excellent
quality. It follows the course of the
Kitwancool river fr-jm near its junction with the Naas in a northeasterly
dire:tion. At t •» southern line tne
area is bounded by one of the districts set apart by 'he provincial government for pre-emptors alone. The
course of the valley is in the diree
tion of the Kitwangar and the Kis-
piox valleys and In that direction an
easy route can be found for a railway
line to the G. T. P. near Hazelton.
The land is a rich, sandy loam,
with a light timber growth of poplar,
spruce and in some instances hemlock. There are no great difficulties
to be overcome in clearing and the
! soil should give excellent crops, be-
j ing adapted to mixed farming.

Strike Has Been Made in the Fiddler
Mountains Giving Rich
Skeena   District   is  Proving  Itself  a
Very Valuable Mining Centre—
Development  Promised
(Special to The Journal)
Hazelton, Oct. 25.—Word has been
received that another mineral strike
has been made here running into
very high values. The assays average
from $95.55 to over $200 per ton
This property is in the Fiddler Mountains, and consists of galena, copper,
silver and gold.
This find following others discovered this summer goes to show th«
vast mineral resources of the Skeena.
Vast coal ledges are also a certainty and will be a valuable adjunct
to the great mineral resources of
this district and its tributaries.
These claims will be developed in
the spring.
Local Man is Given Four Years in Prison
Mr. Justice Murphy  Deals Leniently
Willi the Prisoner Who Shot
Precautions Taken Toward any Possibility  of Shortage
A large shipment, consisting of
1,000 tons of coal for Rogers &
Black, coal dealers of this city, has
recently arrived at this port aboard
the C. P R. barge Wm. W. Case.
Owing to some delay in the freighters last winter, this city was practically devoid of coal for two weeks.
Consequently Rogers & Black have
put in this very large stock to meet
the heavy demand for coal which will
be forthcoming this winter. A large
bunker for handling this coal baa
been built on Third avenue, corner
of Ninth street, and the coal Is being carried there as fast as it can be
It is the intention of Messrs. Rogers & Black to keep a large supply
of coal In this bunker all the time.

The close of the assize sitting In
Vancouver was marked by the sentencing of a number of prisoners
and among them Alphonse Richer of
this place, who shot his companion,
Beaudoin in a cabin some weeks ago.
When Richer came up for sentence
for manslaughter, Mr. Justice Murphy said that this was the most painful duty he had encountered during
the assizes.
"I do not think that you are a
man of criminal instincts," said his
lordship. "The extreme penalty for
manslaughter is life imprisonment,
but I think five years will be sufficient in your case. This is not ta be
considered a precedent."

Hon. W.R.
Ross Returned By a
Majority in
After a Vigorous Campaign Against
Socialist Candidate Government
Representative Wins
(Special to The Journal)
Fernie, Oct. 25.—Hon. to. R. Ross,
minister of Lands in the provincial
government was elected in Saturday's contest by 249 of a majority
over his opponent, Mr. J. W. Bennett,
the Socialist candidate.
The campaign just closed has been
one of the most remarkable, In many
respects, ever fought in the Fernie
riding. The two candidates can be
said to have represented the two
sides of the conflict in a general way
and were so evenly balanced, so far
as personal popularity is concerned,
that ft might be said that the result
was a fair measure of the strength of
the two elements in  the  conflict.
Mr.  Ross held  no meetings while
the Socialists were very prominent in
meetings held with outside help.
The Defeated Candidate
Mr. Bennett is perhaps the most
thoroughly known throughout the
district of any socialistic candidate
ever placed in nomination by his
party. Aside from this he is one of
the best-posted and well-informed
men belonging to his party in the
province, and has the confidence of
all classes as to his integrity. He was
born in Sheffield, England, on November loth, 1865, of English and
Scotch parentage, and was brought
up in the cutlery trade, of which
Sheffield has for so many decades
been the centre. He is well educated,
having earned a diploma for French
at Alfortville-sur-Seine, and can
speak and. write Spanish fluently. He
can also speak German and is an
accomplished scholar in English. In

Imperfect Warrant in Case of Man Convicted of Supplying Liquor to
Habeas Corpus Proceedings Resulted
in Prisoner Being Given
His Liberty
An interesting case was argued before Judge Young yesterday on a
habeas corpus application made by
A. Carss, representing Edwin Cochrane, who was imprisoned for supplying liquor to an Indian woman.
The case came originally from
Masset where the Indian agent sentenced Cochrane to three months In
jail in default of the payment of a
$150 fine and costs. Cochrane was
brought here and his case put into
the hands of Mr. Carss, who took
habeas corpus proceedings.
The conviction was held to be Irregular and the warrant was in several respects out of order. The district named in the warrant was not
within the jurisdiction of the Indian
agent. The travelling fees also were
held to be excessive.
Mr. Wharton appeared for the
crown in connection with the case.
The judge ordered the man released.
Mr. J. H. Rogers returned from an
extensive business trip to the south
yesterday on the Humboldt. He
has been away for three weeks, visiting Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and
Portland In connection with his addition to the townsite of Ellison.

Tuesday, October 25, 1910.
Lord Charles Has Sent an Open Letter
to Premier on Navy
He Outlines a System of Naval Construction Which He Deems
Lord Charles Beresford has sent
an open letter to Premier Asquith in
which he urges that seven new heavy
warships be laid down in addition to
the present building proposals. The
letter Is of great interest as showing
the point of view of British naval
men on the important question of defence.    It is in part as fololws:
During the next few weeks there
must occur a momentous crisis in the
affairs of the nation and of the Empire. If the right measures are taken
by the executive government, of
which you, sir, are the representative
the defences of the Empire may be
secured. But if, on the contrary, the
present opportunity be neglected,
then, sir, I will venture to affirm,
with such assurance as fifty years of
public service may lend my words,
that the position of affairs with regard to the naval defence of the Empire will three years hence be fraught
with a danger whose gravity I believe it to be difficult to exaggerate.
1 select the year 1913-14 as the critical moment, because if the country Is
to be fully equal to the contingencies
which wil lthen arise due preparation
must be begun immediately.
These preparations must be begun
during the present autumn, because,
should they be postponed, the shipbuilding capacity of the country will
prove unequal to the requirements
of the case, which involve the completion of a large number of vessels
. by a definite date.
In order that the naval power of
Great Britain may be maintained In
its proper relation to the strength of
the naval power of foreign nations
three years hence, I believe it to be
absolutely esseniial that in addition
to the five capital ships which are to
be laid down next year, seven more
flrst class armored ships should be
laid down.
Such an increase in the force of
heavy ships must, of course, be supplemented by the full and adequate
provision of al those other elements
of fighting power upon which depend
the whole utility of the battle squadrons These elements consist in men,
stores, docks, cruisers, torpedo-craft,
hospital ships, and a war reserve of
For the moemnt I propose to confine my observations to the provision
of capital ships, always assuming
that their construction will be supplemented by their complete equipment with all fleet accessories. I
have no intention of adducing facts
or figures whose accuracy cannot be
easily ascertained by means of reference to tbe proceedings in parliament
and to the ordinary text-books.
Before entering upon the question
of the relative naval strength of
Great Britain as compared with the
naval strength of foreign powers, I
desire to clarify the confusion which
has been created in the public mind
by the emergence of the new type of
warship, commonly called the Dreadnought type. In gun power and in
speed the ships of the Dreadnought
type are greatly superior to their predecessors. The fighting value of the
pre-Dreadnought ships must automatically decrease by depreciation
incidental to the lapse of time. No
authoritative statement has yet been
presented with regard to the difficult
question of the relative value of
Dreadnought and pre-Dreadnought,
nor is it possible to arrive at any
but an approximate estimate. All
such estimates must leave out of
account the human clement which Is
often tiie decisive factor. Nevertheless, professional experience may
safely assume a working proposition.
In my opinion there will be In 1913-
14 no more than eighteen pre-
Dreadnoughts lit for other than subsidiary duties. These are: Two Lord
Nelsons, eight King Edwards and
eight Bulwarks. Their lighting value
as compared with ships of the
Dreadnought type, I estimate as 2
to 1. In Other words, these eighteen
ships may be regarded as equal for
certain purposes to nine Dreadnoughts.
The position in 1913-14 under existing arrangements would be as follows:—
Dreadnoughts: Great Britain, 25;
Germany, 21; Austria, 4; Italy, 4;
total for Triple Alliance, 29.
Pre-Dreadnoughts: Great Britain,
Total for Great Britain, 34, as
sgalnst 29 for Triple Alliance.
In flaming this calculation the two
Australasian battleships now building are not included. It is impossible
to include in any practical estimate
of naval force ships which are not
under the direct control of the Admiralty. I have also, for the sake of
simplicity, excluded the pre-Dread-
noughts of foreign powers. Their
inclusion would not affect the value
of an estimate dealing only with
modern heavy ships as the deci-ive
factor in modern warfare. The table
shows a superiority of thirteen heavy
ships over Germany alone, and five
over the Triple Alliance. Reckoning
in Dreadnoughts alone, the position
under existing arrangements will be
as follows: 1913-14—Great Britain,
25; eGrmany, 21; Austria, 4; Italy,
4; Triple Alliance, 29.
It Is, therefore, clear that three
years hence our superiority over Germany will be reduced to four ships of
the Dreadnought type; we shall be
exactly equal to Germany and Austria combined, and inferior by four
vessels to the Triple Alliance.
I view the situation thus exposed
with a profound apprehension. I proceed to give my reasons for believing
it to be dangerous in the extreme.
A margin of four ships Is wholly
inadequate. From my own experience
I can quote instances when, owing
to unavoidable exigencies, six battleships out of eight were unavailable.
If It be argued that the fleets of
other powers are liable to the same
contingency, I reply that we cannot
afford to trust to such accidents, an
assertion with which I believe that
every intelligent person will agree.
It. may be argued that the intentions
of the government with regard to the
shipbuilding programme for next
year have not yet been disclosed.
They have not. But what we do
know is that the construction of the
four "contingent" ships of last year
was postponed to this year, and that
the construction of the five ships of
this year's programme has been
postponed to next year. If the same
course be pursued with regard to
next year, it will be completed too
It has been argued that, with regard to Germany, Great Britain owns
an "unassailable superiority," The
phrase, sir, is your own. With all respect, I venture to submit that, technically speaking, no superiority is
"unassailable"; and that the admit
ted superiority in heavy ships is
largely neutralized by the lack of
men, of stores, of docks, of cruisers,
and of torpedo craft, with all of
which the Imperial German navy is
admirably equipped. But I would
here observe that the strength of a
fleet can only be right'y measured
by the work it is designed to perform
A part of the duty of the British
government Is to provide a sufficient
naval force to maintain a supremacy
in home waters over one foreign
power. Within three years it will be
hardly possible to fulfill even that
one duty. It is my intention most
earnestly to appeal to my countrymen to remember, ere it be too late,
that Great Britain is charged with
the duties of guarding British interests in Canada, in South Africa, in
Australasia, in Egypt, in India, and
in the Far East; and I shall ask them
to insist that these responsibilities
bo once more adequately discharged.
It is essential that a powerful fleet
be maintained in the Mediterranean',
and that a strong squadron be stationed in the Far East.
By 1913-14 two members of the
Triple Alliance will together be able
to place eight Dreadnoughts in the
Mediterranean. At present we have
in the Mediterranean six inferior bat-
tleslps which are unfit to encounter
modern heavy ships. It will be the
duty of the British government three
years hence to station at least eight
Dreadnoughts ln the Mediterranean.
Under existing arrangements the
force of Dreadnoughts in home waters would therefore be decreased to
17. We should then have four
fewer in home waters than the number owned by Germany. It has also
to be remembered that circumstances
may arise which will require the dis-1
patch of a battleship squadron to ]
tiie China station. Confronted by i
these plain considerations, how is It
possible for any Intelligent person
to deny theu rgency of the present
To the proposals for a shipbuilding
prog, amine which I had the hnnor to
lay before the London Chamber of
Commerce last year, and during this
year the House of Commons, I adhere in every particular. In framing
my proposal I stated that sixteen
heavy ships must be built during the
period from 1909 to 1913-14. There
are at present four in hand and live
projected. I repeat that 1 he construction of seven more is essential to the
hare 'maintenance of Britisli mari-
t ime supremacy.

Large Increase in   Number Coming to
Canada in Recent
Emigration   Olficial   Tells   of   Work
He is Doing in Pushing
Emigration from Scotland to Canada this year will exceed 30,000 people as against 14,700 last year, said
Malcolm Mclntyre, Canadian Government emigrantion agent, on a recent
visit to Victoria. Mr. Mclntyre is
on a tour of Canada and arrived on
the coast last week.
Mr. Mclntyre is In charge of the
southern half of Scotland on behalf
of the Dominion government. He has
taken a trip lasting now about two
months, across Canada, to refresh
himself on Canadian affairs, and Is
visiting Vancouver Island to obtain
information on its resources with
which to satisfy the homeseekers and
settlers back in southern Scotland,:
who are eager to strike out for the
new land.
He says there has of late been
great enquiry regarding Vancouver
Island and British Columbia in Scotland, all eyes turning in the westerly direction for agricultural and Investment purposes.
The present year will be a record
for emigration from Scotland to Canada, the number coming here this
year more than doubling the 14,700
who embarked upon the new life during 1909 and are now settled in Canada.
The settlers coming out this year,
says Mr. Mclntyre, are all of the better class as compared to many that
left the year previously. Enquiries
have been frequent regarding Vancouver Island and the province of
which it Is part. Those who are now
established here have proved the advance guard. They have written to
their relatives and friends in Scotland reporting on the possibilities of
the country, and these letters, with
the work of the Canadian officials
have, says Mr. Mclntyre, been the
cause of the increased demand for
information about this part of the
The Dominion agent is acting for
the whole of Canada and has on his
way west gathered information on affairs and development from many
who came out last year and ln previous years. The experience of these,
he says, help wonderfully in the work
of satisfying those still in Scotland
who desire to emigrate but who have
hesitated before making the step.
On his winter lecturing tours,
which will be resumed as soon as he
returns to Scotland, Mr. Mclntyre has
much information to give to those in
the different localities in Scotland, as
first hand knowledge from friends of
the Scottish people who have tried
the new country and succeeded beyond their hopes.
While enquiries come to him as
Dominion agent regarding all parts
of Canada, Mr. Mclntyre says the
demand for knowledge regarding the
far west forms the basis of the great
majority of the writers who address
him on the subject. To go to Canada,
and to western Canada, is the desire
strong In the agricultural districts
of Canada, and increased emigration
of the well-to-do class of settlers
with ambition and resources can be
looked for every year, he says.

A Pish Famine Threatens the People
of Kamchatka
Complaints have reached St.
Petersburg from Kamchatka that the
population of that peninsula is
threatened with famine this winter
owing to the scarcity of fish, which
Is the staple diet of R.000 Kamshat-
kans and their 14,000 sledge dogs.
The report has caused surprise, because Kamchatka has always been
considered one of the richest countries In the world as regards fish.
Since 190(1, however, Japanese
fishermen, by blocking the estuaries,
have caught or destroyed millions of
ilsh at spawning time, when they
travel ln immense shoals from the
sea up the rivers. The native fishermen soon imitated theis proceeding
with the result that the Kamchatkan
streams are now practically denuded
of fish, and the poor people are facing starvation.
British Columbia annually produces 900,000,000 shingles, worth
over $1,800,000.
From a recent speech of the British postmaster-general in the house
of commons, Consul-General John L.
Griffiths of London, has prepared the
following sumarized statement concerning postoffice matters of the
United Kingdom.
Fifteen millions of halfpenny (one
cent) packages and letters are conveyed dally through the British post-
offices, 250,000 telegrams are dealt
with each twenty-four hours and $4,-
216,600 is transmitted daily by
money orders and postal orders.
The telephone business of the post-
office has rapidly increased, and 123
new exchanges were opened in 1909.
The number of subscribers Increased
last year by twelve per cent, and the
number of conversations on the
trunk lines by fifteen per cent. Within the next twelve months the National Telephone company, which is
the principal telephone company in
the United Kingdom, will transfer all
of its rights and properties to the
government. The terms of the transfer were agreed upon some time ago,
and a bill will be introduced early
next year to facilitate the transfer.
The postmaster-general, In speaking of wireless telegraphy, stated
that "the purchase last autumn of
the wireless telegraph stations
around the coast has been fully justi-
field by results. They are working
with complete success, within the last
three months the number of messages received and sent has doubled.
1 hope before long to have a complete
ring of stations all around Great
Britain and Ireland." He emphasized
the advantage to shipowners of the
wireless system, and sugegsted that
they would be wel advised to proceed
with the equipment of their ships
with wireless apparatus.
He announced an innovation with
reference to savings banks, which he
called an interesting experiment. The
innovation will consist in the Issuance of money boxes to the public
from postoffices into which the people will be able to place their savings, and at intervals bring the boxes
to the postoffice for deposit. He expressed the opinion that "the post-
office is becoming more and more
closely connected with the lives of
the people."
He explained that the state of the
treasury  would  not  permit  at  this

time the institution of a penny (two
cent) postage with France, as the immediate loss of revenue was estimated at $462,000. The cost of imperial penny postage, viz, $754,000,
he regarded as a different matter, as
the sum in this case would, ln his
opinion, be well expended for the
sake of promoting the unity of the
British empire.
English Moneyed  Men  Are Sending
Much to This Country
Canada now bulks much more
largely ln the British mind as a safe
field for Investment than It has done
at any time In the past.
A well known London authority
has stated that this year Canada has
been investigated by more of the
really moneyed men of the Old Land
than ever before, and "with practically not an exception, they have
invested heavily as a result of their
investigations.    The same authority
says Canadians do not seem to realize
the importance or the extent of the
movement of British capital towards
the Dominion, which is now wel under way.
They do not seem to seize the fact,
however, that men who are now looking to Canada for investments are
the same men who in the past havee
been pouring millions into the United
States, South America and Africa. It
has taken many years to educate
these men to the fact that ln Canada
there Is as great a field for Investment as Is offered In the wild world,
but they are showing at last that they
have learned.

Reason Why Secrecy Must B? Maintained
in Connection With
Public Are at Liberty to Inspect a
Large Part of the Historic
In the course of a letter dealing
with the facilities granted to the public at the Tower of London, a correspondent to a London paper says: "I
was greatly disappointed to discover
that public admission was forbidden
to spots so historic as the Bloody
Tower, where Prince Edward and his
brother were murdered; to the historic building known as 'King's
House' and to the cells under the
White Tower, where are the torture
chamber and the 'Little Ease.' Why
is it that such places of historic interest are barred?"
With a view to clearing up this
matter, one of our representatives
visited the Tower, and was courteously taken round to every nook and
corner by the resident general, Major
General H. Pipon. The tour demonstrated in very clear fashion the reasons which prompt his majesty (or
the reigning sovereign has supreme
jurisdiction over the Tower) to keep
the places mentioned by our correspondent private. Our correspondent's
first complaint is that the Bloody
Tower is not accessible to the public.
This Tower, originally called the
"Garden Tower," is very small. The
wooden staircase leading to the
chamber where the two princes died
is extremely narrow. It is the only
means of exit and entrance, and even
now is not In good state of repair. On
an average 12,000 people visit the
Tower every day during the season.
and this spot is naturally one of the
first they would make for. Apart
from the damage which would be
done to the building itself by the constant flow of visitors, It would be
absolutely impossible to 1-egulate the
traffic with any degree of crder. Only
a dozen people at a time could be
permitted to enter it, and even then
the large numbers who would desire
entrance would cause much confusion among the wardens. In addition
the tower itself is, and has been for
many years, used as wardens' quarr
Although it Is true that the King's
House is one of the most historic
buildings in the Tower, the reasons
for it being made private are reasonable and sound. In the flrst place, it
is a royal residence That is to say,
at any time King George might desire to live there the house would be
ready for him. Now it is used as a
residence by the governor-general.
Our representative had the privilege
of being taken over "King's House"
and here again it was obvious that
lack of space would make it impossible for large crowds to be admitted.
The corridor leading to the famous
chamber where Guy Fawkes was
tried is not spacious, and even smaller Is the passage off which are the
prisoners' rooms, where Anne Boleyn
and others were kept; and here again
there is only one convenient doorway
to act as entrance and exit. The cells
under the White Tower are also
among the places which are not
thrown open to visitors. Permission
may be given to inspect these, but as
a general rule they are kept private.
The reasons are these: In the crypt
leading to the cells are kept the arms
for sudden mobilization. Here are
some 45,000 up-to-date rifles and
guns, each one oiled and ready for
use. The damage which could be
done by a hidden person to these
arms is quite sufficient reason for
the privacy the crypt commands. The
cells themselves are beyond the crypt
and to get to them one would have
to pass through the gunroom. The
torture chamber Is small, and there
Is nothing to be seen (even when
light permits) but whitewashed walls
decorated here and there by a spider's silken web. The old difficulty of
entrance and exit is equally ln the
way as in other barred spots. Indeed, this difficulty Is manifest all
over the Tower more or less. Long
queues stand outside the Beauchamp
Tower, for instance, waiting their
turn to visit the small chamber where
the Duke of Northumberland was Incarcerated. The governor has insists
ed that only a few shall be admitted
at a time, and in this way the crushing which might be anticipated Is
The rest of the Tower Is open to
the public. The regalia room Is at
the disposal of those who desire to
see the great jewels; the chapels are
open, and one only has to ask a warden to gain admission to them. As
has been explained, the authorities
are only too anxious to place every
historical spot within the reach of
the public, but there are cases where
it would not only be Injudicious but
a positive danger to do so.
One very interesting fact was explained to our representative by
Major General Plpon. If anyone
bringing a small party of visitors to
see the Tower will write to him giving satisfactory credentials and references as to his Identity, a warder
will be put at his disposal, who, without official charge, will conduct the
party to every spot where the public
are admitted. The only stipulations
are that the reference be given in
every case and that there be enough
warders to "go around" on the day
the application is made for. "I do
not care if he be an American millionaire or a British workingman,".
said the general. "He can obtain
these facilities by asking for them."
The idea of a total reconstruction
of the Tower mooted In some quarters is laughed at by the authorities,
and the removal of the barracks is
out of the question. There must be
a garrison stationed at the Tower,
and there must also be a barracks.
People are as fond of the Tower
as ever they were. It is London's
greatest attraction for Americans,
foreigners, and country visitors, and
if It is said that they are not satis-
fled with what they see, let the answer be that during the month of
August, 1910, the great fortress was
visted by over 106,000 men, women
and children.
Premier  Asquith  Has   Asked  General
to Take Important
Agitation in  England Over Idleness
of the Favorite of the
With the approval of the king,
Premier Asquith has requested Lord
Kitchener to join the council of Imperial defence.
Whatever Mr. Haldane may say,
it is surely amazing that, of all great
men In the British Empire, Lord Kitchener should find himself out of a
job, says M.A.P.
True, he is not sixty—Napoleon
and Wellington were only forty-six
when they met at Waterloo—but, in
these days of peace, sixty is not old
for a general.
At King Edward's funeral, the tall
soldierly figure of Lord Kitchener,
with his square, swathy countenance,
attracted more notice than the eight
monarchs themselves who visted our
sovereign, it is really true that Lord
Kithcener, in his search for a job,
has considered an offer to organize
the Chinese army? The very idea
adds terror to the yellow peril—a
population of four hundred millions
focussed for war by such an intellect. \
Curiously enough, General Gordon,
who was "avenged" by Lord Kit-!
ehener at Khartoum, made his name
in China, where he suppressed the j
terrible Taeping rebellion. Like Lord
Kitchener, he served his apprenticeship—surveying the  Holy Land.
How did the present position come
about? When Lord Kitchener left
India two posts were open. There
was the Viceroyalty of India, and
there was the Mediterranean command at Malta. India or Malta?—■
w.hat a choice! It reminds one of
Napoleon—Europe or Elba? Lord
Kitchener was not offered India, and
he declined Malta, whence followed
the impasse.
In 1895 Sir Henry Campbell Ban-
nerman boldly retired the Duke of
Cambridge from the post of com-
mender-in-chlef. There were two
reasons: First, his age; and, secondly, his royal status, which made administration very difficult.
A few years later the post of commander-in-chief—just the post for
Lord Kitchener—was itself abolished. Instead, we have now the Inspector-general, whose business it Is
to see the army Is complete to the
last button. The first inspector-general was the Duke of Connaught.
See what followed. The Duke Is,
by universal consent, a good soldier,
thoroughly keen on his work. But
then he suffers, just as the Duke of
Cambridge suffered, from his royal
status. An under-secretary cannot
deal with the brother of the sovereign as if he were an ordinary
officer. Another opening had to be
found for the Duke of Connaught.
Duke ns Governor-General
The Mediterranean command was
quickly evolved from Mr. Haldane's
fertile brain. The duke set forth,
played at soldiers for a few months,
matched the boats sailing by, grew
tired of Interfering in  other men's
duties,   resigned,   and   was  created
governor-general of Canada!
When Malta, thus rendered vacant, was pressed upon Lord Kitchener, all sorts of inducements were
added. He should have the right to
inspect all the Imperial forces in the
King's dominions beyond the seas;
he should carry out Mr. Haldane's
idea of one standard of accoutrement
in the colonies, so that all the scattered forces of the Empire might
work with the home army in time of
war; he should have a seat upon the
defence committee. No; Lord Kitchener would have none of It. He
threw up the Mediterranean command, and the government did not
further extend the invitation to the
defence committee.
Again, let us be fair. The whole
of Lord Kitchener's wonderful career
has been spent in the East. It is not
quite easy to see what appointment
at home he would have accepted.
There is the command in Ireland;
but would not Lord Kitchener have
resented such a suggestion? Besides
General Lyttleton has been barely
a year In the saddle.
Then take the Inspector-Generalship. How could Lord Kitchener
succeed Sir John French, his subordinate?
Of course, the great outcry has
arisen because Lord Kitchener has
no seat upon the defence committee.
The matter lies exclusively with the
prime minister, which was Mr. Balfour's arrangement when he founded the committee in 1905.
There is, undoubtdly, more in all
this than meets the eye. Until he
went to India, the career of Lord
Kitchener was an open volume for all
to read. His brain of "chilled-steel"
his terrible Indifference to all save
the end to be achieved, his hatred of
waste and how in Egypt he "drilled
the black man white and made the
mummy fight"—it was all common
talk, even in the music halls.
Afterwards—mystery! The world
only knew that Lord Kitchener soon
came to loggerheads with Lord Cur-
zon, then viceroy, and that it was
Lord Curzon who resigned. Then
there was a shadowy scheme for reorganizing the Indian forces—two
regiments of Ghurkas were enrolled
—transport was decentralized—native mountain batteries were developed; but what did it mean? The
very experts are mumb.
Kitchener's Present Position
Finally came that astonishing
story of a kind of promise made to
Lord Kitchener, that, if he left India, he had best take a return ticket,
since he would be back in another
capacity—to wit, as viceroy. Exalted
names—very exalted names—are associated with this report
Of course, if a war were to break
out, Lord Kitchener would at once
take command, and no such command would have been possible had
he taken the post of viceroy of In
dia. Otherwise, there are those who
think that he might become secretary of state for war In the next conservative  cabinet.
Such an appointment would be
"political"—that is, it would involve
policy in the widest sense. Lord
Roberts is an apostle of cumpulsory
military service. Some people hint
that Lord Kitchener agrees with him.
But wou'd Mr. Balfour adopt so tremendous a proposal? These are some
of the unplumbed depths in the
strange case of our unemployed field-

Electrical   Apparatus   Which   Deter,

An Invention which will become of
wide practical importance has recently been made by Mr. Otto DeLlsle, a
Vancouver man, who, with a friend,
has been making a series of interesting experiments. It may be described as a method of scientifically finding bodies of ore—or treasure—ln
any position below the earth's surface. The miner and prospector can
now judge the thickness, depth,
value and extent of their lodes or
ore bodies without sinking either
shafts or bore boles, and the hidden
treasurer fiend can be saved from
madness by having actual proof of
the existence or non-existence of his
suspected treasure, shown him by
instruments which cannot He.
The main feature of this invention
is based on the electrical conductivity of the earth. It consists of a recording device which shows automatically what the earth's resistance
at that place should be, while the
amount of variation is also shown on
other Instruments.
A far less delicate instrument than
Mr. DeLisle's tried In India at the desire of a native chief resulted ln the
discovery of plies of rusty nnrlent.
weaponB, and although no treasure
was found, it set at rest forever the
current legends of burled wealth.

There is said to be a tendency on
the part of some to avoid qualifying
as householders for the municipal
elections because they wish to refrain from paying the $2 head tax.
The tax is one which can be collected
ai any time by the authorities so
that although they may defer paying
it until it is too late to qualify as
voters they will not be excused
should the city undertake to take
vigorous methods of getting the tax.
Another point which is liable to
be overlooked is the fact that to
qualify automatically as a property
owner the assessment must be at
least $100. If the assessed value of
the property in the name of any one
is less than $100 some other qualification must be found either as a
householder or as a license holder.
It is gratifying to know that the
Bank of Montreal is prepared to
carry out financial arrangements by
which the street work in section one
of the city will be completed. A situation which was annoying to all
citizens arose ln connection with the
finances. In view of the fact that the
city's credit stood unimpaired by any
charges upon it this was all the more
perplexing. It is gratifying now to
know that the difficulty has been
overcome to the extent of work being allowed to proceed without difficulty in section one, which should
ensure a good pay roll in the city for
a part of the year at least.
There is a vast amount of work to
be done in the city and no time
should be allowed to be wasted. Differences of opinion may exist as to
the methods to be pursued but the
council is clothed with the authority
and are responsible for carrying on
the work. There should, therefore,
be no petty Interference with them
in their duty. The public must
judge  the results.

Kergin of Stewart and Miss Mc
Coskrie United in Marriage
This afternoon at the home of the
bride's parents, Capt. and Mrs. Mc-
Coskrie, Fourth avenue, the marriage
is taking place of Miss Achsah Fran
ces McCoskrie and Mr. Herbert Frederick Kergin. The ceremony is being
performed by Rev. Mr. De Barres
rector of the Anglican church. The
ceremony is taking place at 4 o'clock.
Only the immediate friends of the
bride and groom are invited. The
wedding marcli is being played by
Miss Kergin, sister of the groom.
Miss McCoskrie is very popular
among a wide circle of friends here,
although she has not been a resident
of the city very long. She was identified with the Port Simpson hospital
lor some little time as a nurse and
her pleasing manner has made her
popular wherever she went.
Mr. Kergin is a brother of Dr. Kergin, who is so well known in this
city. He is identified with a transportation company in Stewart, where
they will reside.
In 1890 he came west and followed
various occupations, finally locating
In this province at Vancover in 1896.
In 1900 he removed from Vancouver
to Revelstoke, where his family are
still residing. In the general campaign of 1903 Mr. Bennett contested
the Revelstoke constituency as the
socialist candidate against Hon.
Thomas Taylor, making a most creditable fight against, that very popular
Individual, but was defeated by a decisive maporlty. Since that time he
has been representing the International Correspondence School of
Scranton, Pa., and thus becoming
widely and most favorably known
throughout this entire district to the
working classes of all callings. A
few months ago Mr. Bennett resigned
the position he had so well filled for
the great international educational
educational institution, to become
editor and business manager of the
District Ledger in Vancouver, the
organ of District 18, United Mine
Workers of America.
Mr.  Bennett has   always   been   a

William Mackenzie and His Associates
Will Offer Bonds in Fishing
Will   Introduce  Britisli  Money  Into
the Whaling Industry on
Victoria, Oct. 25.—Cable advices
from London state that William Mackenzie and his associates are planning an appeal to the English money
market for the purpose of floating
the Canadian Northern Fisheries,
which will be developed into a giant
industry as soon as the transfer of
the Pacific Whaling Company, which
he recently purchased, is complete.
For the development of the whaling
and fishing industry in British Columbia waters Mackenzie & Mann
are offering $400,000 worth of bonds
at 86 per cent. A bonus of 19 per
cent in common stock is being given
to the syndicate with which the Canadian Northern magnates are endeavoring to place the issue.
It is stated by officials of the whaling company that the sale of Its
property as a going concern will be
completed next month. The new owners are to take possession early in
Vigorous Efforts Made in Old Country
to Win Victory at Next
It  is Felt That An  Appeal  Will be
Made to Electorate Early
Next Year
The Unionist party is planning a
great political campaign to be carried
out this month and next. The party
is confident that should an appeal to
the country be made by the government during the early months of next
year, victory will await the Opposition at the polls.
Tariff reform is of course the leading plank in the Conservative platform.
With a view to helping speakers
and rendering Unionist literature
well informed, Mr. Percival Hughes,
the chief agent, has been at work for
some months, holding private conferences with leading representatives of
employers and worklngmen In the
principal industries of the kingdom.  .
"My idea," he declares,  "was to
discover first-hand how a tariff was
likely to affect worklngmen and electors when it came to be applied to
their daily life The only way to discover this was, of course, to get into
the confidence of men themselves engaged in the industries."
Mr. Hughes' idea has euabled the
party organizers to learn the views
of the great industrial centres, not
only on the tariff question but also
on the whole range of Unionist
One of the leading Unionist organizers, Mr. Ablewhite, described tha
prospects of his party as follows:
"I have just returned from a tout
through the provinces, and I am convinced that if an election comes In
January the Unionist party are bound
to win. Everywhere I found that
the land tax inquisition has disgusted the country people, and small
holders almost to a man may be expected to vote against the Radical
government." .
The Anti-Socialist Union of Great
Britain will also conduct a vigorous
autumn campaign. It has a large
staff already at work in the country,
and is at present training as public
speakers a very large number of
young men and women with an aptitude for politics.

Mackenzie on behalf of the gathering, a gold locket, studded with British Columbia gold dust and diamonds. Mr. Campbell referred to
Captain Mackenzie's long sojourn
among them and the high place he
held in the esteem of his friends. He
assured the captain of their best
wishes and trusted that he would en -
joy his well earned vacation in the
land of the heather, and return to
them with renewed vigor and health.

Recent Collieries Deal Leads to Question of Accounting Between
As a general thing the self-made
man is particular about lighting his
pipe while he is pumping gasoline.
Victoria, Oct. 25.—Hon. James
Dunsmuir has brought suit against
Mr. Wm. Mackenzie on claims that
will aggregate in the neighborhood
of a million dollars. The trouble
arises out of the recent sale of the
Dunsmuir coal properties to Mr. Mackenzie.
It appears that the transaction between the two capitalists was completed June 17 last, on which date
the price fixed, 11,000,000, was paid
All the expenses in connection with
the running of the properties had
then been met to June 1 and it was
agreed as a matter of convenience
that the running expenses from June
1 to June 17 should be paid by the
new owner William Mackenzie, who
to recoup himself was to retain a sufficient amount out of moneys due to
the company from various parties. It
is out of this arrangement that the
present lawsuit has arisen.
According to the allegations made
in the suit filed by Bodwell & Law-
son of Victoria, on behalf of Mr.
Dunsmuir, the defendant capitalist
since taking over the property on
June 17 has persistently refused to
make any accounting.
It is alleged that on June 17
there was due to the Wellington Colliery Company, which in this connection is another name for James Dunsmuir, $500,000 for coal shipped and
sold in the ordinary way of business.
There were also 25,000 tons of coal
ready mined at Extension and Cumberland, and 15,000 tons of coke at
Union Bay. In addition there were
upwards of 40,000 tons of coal,
worth upwards of $150,000, which
had been sold to the C. n. R., ar.d
delivered to the stock pile at the city
of Vancouver, the understanding being that the C.P.R. was to pay for it
from time to time us they used it.
Ail of these assets, it is claimed,
belong to Mr. Dunsmuir, but Ihe defendant is alleged to have collected
large sums on account of these outstanding accounts and has neglected
and refused to pay the plaintiff or to
account to him therefor. The defendant is alleged to have delivered tbe
above-mentioned coal and coke, and
to have refused an accounting.
Therefore the plaintiff asks that
the defendant be compelled to pay
over to him the sums received from
these various assets, with interest,
less the running expenses of the
properties from June 1 to June 17.
"That writer says he is going to
print an absolutely truthful and impartial analysis of your career."
"Absolutely truthful and Inipar-
tlal!" echoed Senator Sorghum.

had no effect, the commissioners are
determined to make an example of
Victoria.—The city solocitor, F. H.
McDiarmid has tendered his resignation to Mayor Morley. It is believed
that Mr. McDiarmid was prompted
to take this unexpected action owing
to the fact that a majority of tbe
members of the board refused to accept his opinion as to what constitutes asphalt. Mr. McDiarmid assumed liis position in July last, coming to Victoria from  Lindsay, Ont,
which, it is hinted, will follow somewhat the lines of the famous New
York state automobile law, regarded
as the most modern and comprehensive measure of the kind on an Amer-
can statute book, and copies of
which are now receiving the careful
attention of the law officers of the
crown. The object sought by Hon.
Mr. Bowser in this promised new
lew Is primarily the public safety, the
minister's policy herein being in line
with that demonstrated in the statutes providing for inspection of factories, of tramways and of electrical
plants and energy. Control of speed
will be provided for as well as explicit obedience of all rules of the
road and regulations will be provided covering fitness to operate any
automobile or power vehicle on the
streets or roads of any portion of the

Nelson.—The report made by the
Trail smelter to G. 0. Buchanan, Dominion lead bounty commissioner, on
the amount of lead ores and lead
contents received during the month
of September contains the names of
a number of properties which have
not previously shipped for some
months and several which have not
been on the list for over a year.
Among these are the Enterprise, the
Fidelity, the Hewitt and the Standard
The report shows a considerable
increase over the former months of
the present year and is an indication
of the changes which have taken
place in the mining situation in this
part of British Columbia during the
past summer months. It will be seen
that the percentage of lead in the
ores varies from as low as an eighth
of one per cent to as high as 70 per
cent. An interesting feature of the
past month's report Is that for the
first time in many years the St. Eugene takes second place in the totals
of lead ore sent to Trail. The Sullivan heads the list with approximately 3,600 short tons.    The figures in
Victoria.—The request of the Vic
toria board of health that the provincial government appoint a royal commission with a view, if possible of
tracing the causes of dysentery and
infantile paralysis with the object
of seeking a remedy therefore will
not be entertained by the provincial
authorities on the ground that the
government during the past summer
has been at work on this very subject and has done everything possible in the interests of the public
In response to the city's request,
the provincial secretary, Hon. Dr.
Young, has written to the city, his
communication having been read at
a meeting of the council, enclosing
a report by the provincial health officer, Dr. Fagan, dealing with the
matter and particularly with the epidemic of dysentery.
Dr. Young points out that a
perusal of this report will show that
the remedy lies in the hands of the
city health board, and if proper sanitary precautions are observed there
is no reason why there should be a
continuance of the trouble. With the
advent of the fall rains, the provincial board looks for an entire cessation of the difficulty, but the board
at the same time would point out
that if the summer of 1911 is as
dry as that of the present year the
city must expect, if proper sanitary
precautions are not taken, a repetition and an eccenuation of the trou-
New Westminster.—At present approximately $800,000 worth of lumber of all kinds is stored In the immense lumber yards of the Canadian
Western Lumber company at Mill-
side. Owing to the fact that the x-
port price of lumber has been low
for the past three months this company has done but little shipping.
The export shipments have been cut
down to almost nothing while the retail shipments are also greatly reduced. American lumber firms are
able to undersell Canadian lumbermen and the Canadian Western Lumber Company is in a financial position
to store its immense cut of lumber
until the price regains its normal
level and makes shipping profitable.
Nelson.—Nelson is reaching out
for industries. A proposal from W.
H. Kreyscher and associates to establish a shingle mill and box factory if
substantial aid and encouragement
was given, met with a ready response
from the city council. It was decided to grant to the proposed company
the site occupied before the late fire
by the Kootenay Engineering works
with whatever other land to the east
may be required together with a tax
exemption of five years. The industry will employ twenty men on an
average and use eighty horsepower
of electricity.

some of the richest gold quartz that
ever came out of the North arrived

as that of the Engineer property on
Taku arm The Gleaner claims lie
up on the mountain side. The work
done consists of a 100-foot tunnel
that has been driven to intecept the
ore body disclosed on the surface.
There are several open cuts on the
claims, and Mr. M. H. McKay, of
Victoria, one of the directors of the
company, declares that a large ore
body has been demonstrated.
The company was organized about
ten years ago, but the money raised
was soon expended in the tunnel, and
only recently was work resumed,

Other properties working in the
district are the Engineer group, the

Greatest   Carrier   Has
Launched at Belfast
Olympic of the  White Star Line is
Introducing Many New
A great leviathan of the seas, as
much larger than the Mauretanla and
the Lusitania a» those vessels exceeded ln size their pygmy predecessors has been launched at the Belfast shipyards of Harland & Wolff.
The new giant is the White Star
steamship Olympic, which has a tonnage of 45,000 and a length of 860
feet. A sister ship, the Titanic, is
also well under way, but is not yet
ready for launching. The vessels will
be placed ln service between Liverpool and New York.
The Olympic's 45,000 tons compare with the 32,000 tons of the
Mauretanla and Lusitania, now the
wonders of the ocean. The length of
the big Cunarders is 762 feet, which
will cause them to look small beside
the 860 foot Olympic.
It is certain that the new White
Star liners will not long retain their
supremacy as the largest vessels of
the world. The Cunard company has
planned a 50,000 ton monster of the
sea, and the German companies are
expected to enter the race for leadership.
The great problem in connection
with the big liners is the securing of
adequate harbors and docks. The
Liverpool Docks and Harbor Board
has outlined an extensive scheme of
improvement, whereby the harbor
will be deepened and docks built
capable of accommodating vessels
1,100  feet in  length.
Engines and Installations
The Olympic, when completed and
ready for her maiden voyage between
Southampton, Cherbourg, Queens-
town and New York about July 11
next year, will differ somewhat in
apeparance from the other liners of
the White Star fleet in the New
York, Mediterranean and Australian
service, inasmuch as she will have
four funnels and two steel pole masts
She will be a triple-screw boat, the
two outside propellers being piston-
driven by high-pressure quadruple-
expansion reciprocating engines,
while the central propeller will be
actuated by a low-pressure turbine
engine, a plan which has given the
utmost satisfaction in the case of the
Laurentic These combined engines
will be of from 48,000 to 50,000
horsepower indicated, as against the
Mauretania's 70,000, the speed aimed
at being a trifle over 21 knots. The
Olympic and her sister ship will be
fitted not only with powerful searchlights, but will have a long-distance
wireles stelegraphy installation besides the most modern submarine
signalling apparatus. Both vessels
are registered at the port of Liverpool.
Modern Accessories
The equipment of the Olympic is
unprecedented. There will be a
large hall, a spacious dining-room,
smoking-room, library, women's parlor, grill and lounging rooms, all
elaborately furnished. One of the
upper decks is to be completely enclosed to serve as a ballroom, which
can also be used as a skating rink
(or theatre. By day this enclosure,
the windows of which, constructed
on the railway carriage principle, ate
fitted with palousies, may be used as
a sun-parlor and promenade. It will
be large enough to accommodate several hundred passengers. As to the
cabins, not only will there be suites
of rooms, but also complete flats.
These will comprise bedrooms, sitting-rooms or parlors, private baths,
and even a private library all en
suite. The parlor will be furnished
with tables suitable for serving
meals. The Olympic will he the flrst
steamer to offer cabins with private
baths attached. In addition there
will be a great swimming bath
aboard large enough to permit of
diving. A gymnasium, the largest
and most completely equipped afloat,
will be found on each of the new
boats. There will be more or less for.
mal meals served daily aboard the
new ships, and, what is unusual even
In these days of luxury afloat, there
will be a choice of dining-rooms.
Luxury nnd Safety
The main dining saloon, which will
seat more than 600 passengers, will
be the largest single apartment of
the ship. The most striking departure will be the verandah cafe. It will
be built on one of the upper decks
far astern, looking out over the sea,
and about fifty feet from the water.
The decorations and general management will carry oul the idea of the
open-air cafes of Southern Europe.
The meals will  be served  at small
tables with movable chairs. Tbe cafe
will be erected with exposed rafters
entwined with vines, while the sides
will be latticed.
Flower and palm gardens and conservatories, containing seasonable
flowers and plants the whole year
round, and a fish pond will also be
among the liner's equipment, while a
carefully selected orchestra on a
grand concert scale will at Intervals
discourse the latest operatic and
other music, and a grand organ, presided at by a skilled organist, will
lend variety and charm to the entertainments on board. Other features
are children's nurseries, a high-class
tailor's shop, modistes' parlor, and
jewellery store for the convenience
of first and second-class passengers.
Safety Devices
The new liners will be complete in
their safety devices. Each will be divided Into upwards of thirty steel
compartments, separated by heavy
bulkheads. An automatic device on
the bridge will control all these
heavy steel doors, making it possible
for a single hand to close them all
in case of danger. The doors will be
electrically conncted with a chart
on the bridge, where each door will
be represented by a small electric
light. When one of the doors closes
the light will burn red; while it remains open the light will remain
dark. The officer on the bridge will
thus be able to see at a glance If all
the compartments are closed. Still
another set of safety devices will
guard against fire in every part of
the ship. A series of thermostats
will be scattered throughout the
great framework, which will indicate
a rise In the temperature above a
certain point. Should the temperature reach the danger point the fact
Is at once communicated to the officer on the bridge by the ringing of a
bell/while an electric light on a great
chart displayed on the wall will burn
Provincial Government's Plans for Road
Building Finds
Business Men of Victoria Pass Resolution Favoring the Proposition Put Forward
Chief in interest among the matters which engaged the attention of
the Victoria board of trade at Its
quarterly meeting a few days ago
was the question of good roads in the
province, and in this conectlon a
resolution proposed by Mr. A. E.
Todd and seconded by Mr. J. J. Shall-
cross was passed as follows:
"It is hereby resolved that this
board notices with appreciation the
large amount of wagon road construction which the provincial government has under way in the various portions of the province, and this
board, believing that a first class system of roads is essential to the proper development of the province, urges
that the main trunk highways from
north to south and from east to west
on both Vancouver Island and the
Mainland be pushed ito completion
as quickly as Is reasonably possible.
"Further this board is of the opinion that In the construction of all
new roads that wherever reasonable,
practical permanent locations should
be followed with the most ample
right of ways and moderate grades,
and curvature and construction generally of a higher class than the
standard formerly followed! n such
"This board is also of opinion that
the provincial government should con
the provincial government should
construct and locate, widen, straighten or improve, regulate or control,
and In every way administer at the
cost of the provincial government
throughout all parts of the main

Ccr. any Has Nearly One Million Dollars
on Hand and Out of
Jay P. Graves, Second Vice-President
And General Manager, Speaks
of Proposals
At the annual meeting of the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power company, limited, held
In New York on October 4, when the
annual reports of the various officers
were submitted with the expert report made March 31 last, by Dr. Otto
Sussman, Mr. Jay P. Greaves, vice-
president and general manager of the
company, spoke as follows:
"The company is free from debt
and has over $900,000 in cash and
copper in transit. It has a good
working organization — men who
have been with your company since
its organization, and understand its
strength and weakness better than do
the strangerB who visit it occasionally.
"The gentlemen making these reports, Mr. Smith and Mr. Williams,
have been with your company over
ten years; your treasurer and the
writer occupying their present positions since the company's organization. With such an organization upon the ground familiar with the work
with such large property interests,
with the company free from debt, a
large cash reserve on hand, and with
the coming, sooner or later, of higher
prices for copper, I see nothing but
the brightest future for the Granby
company, providing the properties
you now own are developed and a
progressive, vigorous and intelligent
management applied to the company's affairs."
The reports of General Manager
Graves and Superintendents Smith
and Williams are not in accord with
the rather gloomy predictions of Dr.
Otto Sussman, whose report estimated the ore reserves actually ln sight
in the mine at Phoenix at 5.600,000
tons, subject to a stoping loss of 10
per cent. From this ore he figured
there should be recovered 19 pounds
of copper per ton, at an average cost
of 10.35 cents per pound, sold in
New York. He figured that with a
daily treatment of 3,500 tons of
crude ore a day the company's ore
reserves would last about four and
,one-half years. The average con
tents of the ore reserves in the mine
he estimated at: Copper, 1.24 per
cent; silver, .25 ounce; gold, .04
ounce per ton. He estimated the net
annual profit on a 13-cent copper
market at $630,000, and on a 14-cent
market at $850,000; both estimates
on the operating basis of 3,500 tons
About fifty stockholders of the
company were present at the meeting. Several of them seemed to be
especially desirious of knowing how
th report of Dr. Sussman was permitted to leak out before being communicated to the shareholders, and
whether any director had disposed of
any of his holdings while the matter
of the Sussman report still was
known only to them. The retiring
president, Mr. Langcloth, was able
to convince all of them that no director had disposed of a single share
and that the report had only become
public after it was printed for the
express purpose of being mailed to
all of the stockholders.
The first action of the new board
of directors of the company was to
wire instructions to the management
at Grand Forks, B.C., to blow ln two
additional furnaces at the smelter at
once, this placing six furnaces In
operation. They further expressed
the intention of placing the entlrs
battery of eight furnaces in action
just as soon as cars and coke could
be assembled so as to insure theil
continuous operation.

Sloop Wild Duck is Probably a Total
Loss in Consequence of the
Damage Done
tSpecial Correspondence)
Port Essington, Oct. 21.—What
proved to be one of the most terrific
wind storms in the history of Port
Essington occurred last Tuesday at
about two-thirty, and lasted for less
than half an hour. An exceptionally
high tide along with the wind and
rain caused a frightful lot of damage, In fact for half an hour Port
Essington was literally afloat. The
extent of the damage is great,
amounting to hundreds of dollars.
At the corner of Dufferin street
the whole of R. Cunningham's plank
waterfront was washed away, almost
flooding the store and hotel. For
some minutes it looked as if the Cunningham hall would be washed away,
as heavy logs were undermining the
piling foundation.
The sloop Wild Duck was badly
damaged, two large holes being
stove into her. She will probably
be a total loss. Mr. T. J. Orwig is
the owner, and will feel the loss
greatly. All down the waterfront of
the reservation, small boats, shacks,
and sidewalks are now smashed up
ln scrap heaps, almost down to the
Monte Crlsto.
Luckily there was no lives lost.
Had it happened at night instead of
in the day time it is more than probable the results would rave been
The wharf owned by the Anglo-
British American Packing Company
was for some time practically submerged, and quite a lot of damage
was done to the approach of the
wharf. Yards of sidewalk were
washed away, and some of the shacks
including the mess house of the
above company, was afloat for some
time. Many small boats broke adrift
from their moorings and were
smashed to pieces like an eggshell.
The oldest timers around Port Essington claim they never remember
such a storm ln the history of the
Skeen river. Mr. George Cunningham said he had been here for over
thirty years and he never saw the

Victoria, Oct. 25.—Information
has reached the attorney-general's
department that in the cities of
Fernie and Cranbrook the provisions
of the new liquor act providing that
all bar-rooms shall close at 11 o'clock
each Saturday night is being disregarded by the local authorities entrusted with the administration of
the statute law.
As strict enforcement of this, as
well as other statutory laws, rests
with municipalities the department
is not directly resonsible to the same
extent as in unorganized districts.
The law, however, Is for the whole

unfair rigidly to enforce it in an unorganized district and permit its evasion or violation in the cities. Consequently, as Fernie and Cranbrook
do not take such action of their own
volition, the necessary steps will be
taken by the attorney-general's department to compel such a course.
In the case of the protests filed by
Rev. Dr. Chown, genera 1 superintendent of the Methodist church In
Canada, that violations of the liquor
law had been connived at by the resident magistrate in Phoenix, the
attorney-general has received an explanatory report from that official.
The stipendiary magistrate admits
that upon a plea of guilty being entered in a case of Infraction of the
liquor act he permitted the defendants to go away with a severe caution, it being a flrst offense. The attorney-general has replied to this re-
poit that the magistrate must hereafter strictly follow the law, It being
ooen to anyone feeling himself unjustly or harshly dealt with, lo apply
to the minister for a remission of the
line imposed.
A. I). McRae and E. J. Palmer .Make
Arrangements by Which Bust-
ness is to be Held
To the business ability of A. D.
McRae, who is prominently identified
with the Mackenzie & Mann interests
in this province, and E. J. Palmer,
manager of the Victoria Lumber
Mills at Chemainus, is due the solving of tiie question of United States
compelItion in the lumber business
in the prairie provinces.
Both men rank high among the
mill men and are able to hold their
own iu any competition.
Western Canada will no longer be
tiie dumping ground for the surplus
output of American sawmills. By the
terms of agreement recently entered
into between the retail dealers in
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta
and the British Columbia Lumber &
Shingle association representing the
Coast mills, and the Mountain Lumber Mills association, representing
"the sawmills of the interior, the
prairie retailers will no longer handle any lumber originating in the
United States.
The arrangement is likely to prove
very effective in excluding the American product as the millmen to the
south, quoting low prices for their
surplus stocks, would be unable to
stand the expense of establishing independent yards of their own in the
Canadian prairie regions. This will
mean that the Mountain and Cokm
millmen will be enabled to ship annually at least two hundred million
additional feet of lumber to the markets east of the Rockies.
The three-cornered agreement has
already been ratified by the various
intersted parties. The Coast millmen
adopted it at a special meeting held
in Vancouver. The movement for
overcoming American competition
originated with Messrs. A. D. McRae,
general manager of the Canadian
Western Lumber Company, owning
the big mills at Millside, near New
Westminster, and Mr. E. J. Palmer,
manager of the mills of the Victoria
Lumber oompany at Chemainus, Vancouver Island. On a recent trip to
the prairie provinces they took up
the matter with tbe retailers and the
present agreement was the result of
their negotiations.
The coast mills recently cut the
price of lumber to the prairie dealers
to the extent of $2. per thousand, the
price delivered being $21.50 per

A clear, sunshiny day prevailed for
the arrival of the cruiser Niobe, but
a strong northeast wind caused the
harbor to be topped with whltecaps,
says a Halifax despatch. At 4 o'clock
last Thursday she was 120 mile off
Halifax, and it was not intended that
she should come to port until nearly
noon Friday, but a heavy northeaster outside caused heavy seas and she
came to anchor at McNabb's Island
about 7 a.m. At 10 o'clock the cruiser
Canada, with Admiral Kingsmill
aboard, went down the harbor and
met the warship. The admiral went
aboard, hoisting his flag at 12.15,1

decorated with bunting and accompanied by Ihe Canada, started up the'
harbor. Ae she passed the lumber
yards she was greeted with a salute
of seventeen guns and whistles toot-;
ed by various steam craft.

marine and fisheries, went aboard
and was received with a salute of
seventeen guns, afterwards Lieuten-
