SOUTH HAZELTON LOTS RAN VERY HIGH
MET THE SETTLERS
William  Hanson,   N.P.P.  Attended  a
Gathering of the Up River
Residents.
TO CONSIDER CLAIMS
Appropriations Are Under Consideration  and  Information  Has   Been
Obtained as to Needs of District
Terrace, Dec. 12.—William Man-
son, M.P.P., paid a visit to this place
last Saturday, where, by appoint-
nientn, he met a large and representative gathering of the settlers of Kitsumkalum and Lakelse valleys. In
the commodious reception room of
the New Hotel, the meeting was held.
Judging from the reception he got
on rising to address the meeting he
maintains his place as a great favorite with the settlers. He explained
that this was his annual tour of the
riding, to ascertain the amount of
appropriation required for development work in the line of building
roads, trails, bridges and ferries for
the ensuing year.
As these valleys are getting thickly settled now gotod roads are becoming an absolute necessity; consequently there was a large amount
of money asked for, and the settlers will rest assured that it will
not be Mr. Manson's fault if he does
not succeed in getting it for the
district.
He evinced great surprise at the
rapid growth of the town of Terrace,
where the G. T. P. Ry. has built a
very substantial depot. Towards the
close of the meeting he announced
that the government had decided to
build a cable ferry across the Skeena River at a point continguous to
the town of Terrace. This will be
a great convenience to the settlers
on the Lakelse side of the river in
coming across to the station and to
the post office for their mail.
Mr. Manson was accorded a hearty
vote of thanks, after which the meeting came to a close.

The city solicitor made a report
to the council last night on the decision of Mr. Justice Clement in the
case of Watson vs. the City of Prince
Rupert. The report deals with each
part of the judgment. On that of
liquidated damages Mr. Peters said
the judge was not sure of his ground
on that point as he relied upon thet
city engineer saying that the time
was too short to complete the work.
Mr. Peters believed the judgment to
be erroneous on this point. As to
the time being too short, this was
discovered since the event. Both the
paries in a position to know this—
the contractors better than the city
engineer. The fact that the contractor applied for an extension of

Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 13.—In addition to being relieved of his watch
and several dollars by three holdup
men, L. W. Leavee was robbed of
his false teeth, he told the police.
After taking his money and jewelry
one of the robbers said:
"Let's see if he's got any gold in
his teeth." Leavee's mouth was
pried open. There was no gold, but
In the struggle the false teeth were
loosened and dropped out. "Thanks,

Weigh Scales
The city weigh scales are heret
and ready to be installed. The council has referred the matter to the
city engineer to see if a place more
convenient to all the wharves can
not be obtained than that on the

Sixth  Streets.

time  indicated   that  this  had  been
taken into account.
On the point of the $500 allowed
for rock deposited below Beach
Place, Mr. Peters contended theret
was no legal right to this $500. It
could only be overhaul.
Mr. Peters pointed out that there
were only two courses. One would
be to take an appeal on these two
points—that of liquidated damages
and the $600 extra.
The second course was that the
council, having obtained the views
of the court as to a basis to proceed
upon, should take that course and
decide the amount due on the basis
of the judgment.
Alderman Clayton moved that in
view of the somewhat lengthy report
that it lay on the table and that a
report as to how each.contract stood
be brought down so that an intelligent course could be taken. The
claims of the contractors as viewed
from the standpoint of the judgment
could thenn be obtained.
Alderman Hilditch wanted to see
the motion go a little farther. He
would like to see figures brought
down to show how much the city
would have to pay under this decision and how much the city engineer had recommended.
They had what they sought, a decision of the court.
Alderman Morrissey said that wbb
like locking the stable after the
horse was stolen. It had been proposed before the action began to
take this up with the contractors,
which, had It been taken up, might
have saved the city the stigma that
had been attached to It by thet
Judge.
He wanted the letter from Mr.
Morgan produced. This letter had
been written at his suggestion aud
he did not know why it was not
brought before the council.
His Worship pointed out that the
position of the majority of the council as far as he understood it was
that they did not feel like settling
the claims as far as liquidated damages was concerned without a decision of the court on that point. That
decision had been obtained and the
situation  was  therefore altered.
The motion of Alderman Clayton
carried.

Between This Port and the
Hich  Valley
Bella Coola is seeking better transportation facilities with Prince Rupert, which is 'looked upon by the
thrifty residents of that valley as
the natural market for their produce. The matter of better mail service has been taken up. from here
and there are assurances that a remedy will be provided.
The views of the southern valley
are set forth in the foliowing letter
relative to the situation:
Bella Coola, Nov. 24., 1911.
To the Editor of the Prince'Rupert
Journal, Prince Rupert  B. C.
Dear Sir:—No doubt space in your
valuable paper is at a premium at
all times, and your news columns
well filled; it may be presumption
on the writer's part to ask for your
indulgence for the insertion of this
article; but your well known championship of the needs of the Skeena
District is my excuse for enlisting
your sympathy at this time.
Now, sir, to a great many of your
readers no doubt Bella Coola Is only
a name, but to any who have been
fortunate enough to take a trip
through this part of the Skeena District, either on pleasure bent, or on
business, it must have been a revelation to them to observe the signs
of prosperity, and extent of the improvements made by the settlers in
this part of the Skeena.
Our population Is"ahout 300 but
is increasing, quite/,$' numbe^r.^pt
stranger's having bought sma'l tracts
of land this summer and are going
in for small fruit and truck gardening. Every settler has telephone connection with Bella Coola, and Sloan,
tnirty-five miles up the valley. A
first class wagon road is being built
by the government through the valley, which I believe will be carried
through to a connection with the
Cariboo Road in the very near future.
Yet, Mr. Editor, a community of
this size; the outfitting point of a
vast hinterland extending as far
north as Ootsa Lake and south to
the Chilcotin; depending on the city
of Prince Rupert and the northern
coast district for a market for Its
product; conceded by the Boscowitz
Steamship Company to be the most
lucrative point between Vancouver
and Prince Rupert for trade, both in
passengers and freight, and Sir, we
are still doing business under the
criminal disadvantage of only two
mails a month, and both of them
from the south.
Practically our whole trade will be
done with Prince Rupert in another
year, and as it is at present mail
from Prince Rupert takes a monlli
to get here, having to go to Vancouver, and is forwarded from there.
| We are sending a petition, signed
by every person in the community,
to our representative, Mr. Clements,
for an increased Bel vice, so that
steamers coining south from Prince
Rupert und touching at this point
will deliver mail, and we earnestly
ask the assistance of the newspapers
and merchants of the northern metropolis In the obtaining of this our
just dues.
Thanking you In advance for your
courtesy,  1  remain,
Yours sincerely,
J.   W.   McFARLANE.

"OUR  REGIMENT"
Aid.    Morrissey    Opposes    Engineer
Putting in Tender of City's Undertaking and Prevents Action
The proceedings of the City Council now show that an opposition ex
ists that is prepared to oppose prac
ticaliy everything that is suggested
apart from their own suggestions.
Last evening it manifested itself on
the proposal to open a large number
of tenders that were on hand for the
station work in connection with the
tenders for the waterworks. A large
number were present to hear the
result of the bids, but were disappointed.
The result of the opposition shown
is that this work is delayed and instead of starting almost immediately
the digging of these trenches will
not be possible until after another
week's time. The matter came up
at an early stage of the proceedings
when Alderman Hilditch suggested
that they proceed to this in view of
the fact that so many interested were
present and were anxious to hear the
results. Alderman Kerr was absent
through sickness and Alderman Clayton had not arrived, being late in
taking his seat.
Alderman Hilditch moved that
proceed to open the tenders.
Alderman Morrissey wanted to
know if the city engineer's tender
was in and was told it was.
He wanted to know if the engineer's bid proved the lowest and it
was found that the work cost more
than his estimate who would pay the
ditJerenf|J*£":' v"•'. - ~   -
He contended that the engineer
should only give an estimate and not
make a tender.
Finally, Alderman Hilditch's motion was passed and a vote taken
tion was pressed and a vote taken
on the question of whether the tenders be opened or not. This was
defeated on a tite vote, Mayor Man-
son, Alderman Hilditch and Alderman Kirkpatrick voting to open the
tenders and Aldermen Morrissey,
Newton and Douglas voting against
the motion.
Later in the evening, after Alderman Clayton arrived, that member
wanted to know when the tenders
were to be oppened, when the mayor
explained the situation, saying he
could not bind the council in the
matter. In deciding whether the
city engineer were to hear the difference In cost over his estimate or he
(the mayor) could only speak as
one member of the council.
Alderman Clayton thought the
proposition of Alderman Morrissey's
to make the mayor responsible for
the loss, If any, was a rediculous
one. He was the servant of the
city and if he could not make a
proper estimate he should be asked

Mr. Morrison said that for days
after the McNamara brothers' plea
of guilty money for their defense was
pouring in. The subscriptions were
made before the pleas were entered.
Mr. Morrison said more than
$200,000 had been subscribed and
practically all of this had been
spent. The money received by the
committee after the pleas of guilty
were made, he said, would be returned the contributors, while the residue
of the defence fund, if any, would
be either sent back to the contributors or distributed pro rata among

(Special Correspondence)
Masset, Dec. 9.—The worst storm
that ever passed over the north end
of Graham Island struck Masset Inlet on November 27. The Indians
report that it was the fiercest blow-
known. The Hospital Tent was demolished by a large tree falling
across it. Fortunately, it was not
occupied at the time. A small building, in which Henry Edenshaw
housed a donkey-engine, was also
blown down, and the boiler smashed.
All vessels were under shelter and
no loss of boats or lives have been
reported.
Eli Tingley returned from the west
coast, safe and sound; but returned
there before the high wind of the
twenty-seventh with supplies for the
oil plant at Tiahn village. He reports the drill making satisfactory
progress and the workmen most sanguine of ultimate success.
Ground is being cleared for the
new Anglican Church, on Collison
Avenue, New Masset. The residents
intend holding a sale of work during
the Christmas holidays to aid in raising funds for construction. The
building will be erected on the property adjacent to the new school-
house.
A party of surveyors arrived on
the last steamer to locate a line of
railway at the head of Masset Inlet.
They left for the scene of operations
on the launch Josephine.
A number of men left for the
Yakoun River on November 2 6 to
carry a cable up the stream for use
in connection with the opening of
the coal mines in that locality.
Alfred Adams & Company have
erected a building on the Indian reserve to supply the Prince Rupert
market with fish and game. They
made the first shipment on November 2 4 and will install a cold storage
plant. The Masset Indians are engaged in fishing for the new industry.
The British Canadian Lumber Corporation Ltd. of Vancouver has
opened a lumber yard in Masset
Townsite and will supply the local
trade with all the necessary building material to be used on Masset
Inlet.
Captain Andrew Brown is completing a large schooner, in which he
will install a twenty-horsepower gasoline engine. The vessel is being
built of yellow cedar and will be one
of the best of that class of vessels
coasting out of Masset.
Joshua Moody, a former resident
of Masset, has returned, to make his
permanent home on the reserve. He
is well known as a revivalist and
will be an accession to the ranks of
those engaged in teaching the Indians.'
A rind cf "graphite" has been
reported from Juskatla Bay.. The
locators are confident that a
large body of (hie mineral exists in
that locality and are mailing arrangements for the opening up of the
mine.
It is expected that a large number
will ■ isit il'e- wesl coast of Graham
Island next summer to inspect lhe
oil plant anil the locations staked
from Otard Bay lo Frederick Island.
The Indications, comprising shule
and tar, exuding from crevices In

Within eighty miles of Prince Rupert, excursionists will find a place
lhat is ideal and Interesting, with

A meeting was held in Masset on

There have been a number of oases
of illness, which were nl tended to In
a tent provided by the governmenl,
and In a log building. During the
recent storm both places were almost
demolished and, with the growing up
of the north end of the island in the

are convinced that there is great
need for an hospital.

PRINCH RUPBBT JOURNAL
CONTRACTOR WINS
AS TO DAMAGES
Judgment Given by Mr. Justice Clement in City Case on
Ground that Time Allowed was not Sufficient---
City did all that Could be Expected as
to Strike—Penalizes Lawyers
"Young in Practice"
for Unwarranted
Course.
In the Supreme Court yesterday
morning the case of Watson vs. City
of Prince Rupert was concluded, Mr.
Justice Clement hearing the address
of counsel and giving an off-hand
decision immediately afterwards.
The large item involved in the action, ttlat respecting the question of
liquidated damages, was decided
against the city in this case although
It is very doubtful If the decision of
His Lordship was just as clear on
this question as could have been
wished for in view of the fact that
it is a point at issue in practically
all the disputes in settling up the
contracts. His Lordship decided this
case on the point that the time was
admitted by the city engineer to be
too short for the completion of the
contract and not on the legal aspect
of the right of the city to collect
these damages, so that the point still
remains somewhat in the dark. In
view of the fact that the council
sought a precedent through a judgment of the court In settling the disputes that have arisen, it ,is somewhat disappointing that the legal
aspect on this point was not more
fully dealt with.
In concluding his judgment Mr.
Justice Clement reprimanded counsel
for the plaintiff for their course in
trying to put up a claim that 'there
was no time clause In the contract
and for attacks upon the city engineer in their pleadings. Alex. Man-
mon pleaded youth as an excuse for
the firm.
Address of Counsel
In his argument on behalf of the
city, Fred Peters, K. C, on the point
of liquidated damages, contended
that the idea of pre-estimated damages should not be given as much
prominence as was attempted. On
account of it being difficult to acer-
tain the exact damages, liquidated
damages should be assessed.
His Lordship said that to his mind
there had been a fundamental mistake. The engineer in his evidence
said that he thought that the six
months was too short for the carrying out of the contract.
Mr. Peters pointed out that the
contractor took the contract knowing
all the conditions. The engineer's
statement, even if it went that far,
did not interfere with taq contract.
The contractor was bound just the
same.
His Lordship said that this was a
common error in judgment.
Mr. Peters pointed out that there
was nothing to show that the contractor did not take all this into
account and that the charge per yard
was made on the basis that there
was too short a time allowed.
In liquidated damages, the contract itself, and that alone, must be
looked at. Surely the contractor
must be given credit for exercising
common sense enough to take into
account this very fact that there
was a limited time to do it and that
he based his tender on that. No
authority could be round to vary
this. There was nothing to show
how much less the engineer would
have charged had the time been
longer.
Strike Period
As to the charging of the contractors for the Btrlko period, Mr. Peters
said he would leave the evidence as
it was with His Lordship. He desired a judgment on the point.
With respect to the work on Sunday, Mr. Peters said that the Sunday
Observance Law was in force in Canada. No deduction should be allowed,
because they were not allowed to
work on those days.
Mr. Peters alluded to the point
with respect to the six months' time
limit, which he said he would not
argue now as it had been virtually
concluded that there was tlie limit.-
He, however, had a point which he
wished to raise on behalf of Mi.
Woods, ihe city clerk, wiih respect
to the writing in of the six monlles
in tlie contract, in tlie city hall. Mr,
Woods wanted it made clear that
he had no fraudulent intent.
His Lordship said this was clear.
He thought he had made It clear before. He was convinced that there
was no fraud intended.
As to the dumping of rock ou low
lying lots Mr. Peters wanted to know
why Watson, when he was first
obliged to put rock elsewhere than
on these lots, did not raise this objection, that he had a right to dump
there. This claim was an afterthought. Watson, under the contract,
was obliged to carry,out the whole
contract before he was entitled to
get all the money. Until the rock
was removed, the Contract was not
completed.
His Lordship said he had no evidence to show that these owners
would object to the small amount of
rock dumped upon their land.
Mr. Peters contended that with the
money in the hands of the city, held
back for the due performance of the
contract, it should not be asked to
take an action to secure damages as
a matter of equity.
His Lordship said that the city
had no interest in this land. The
city was only appearing as trustee.
Mr. Peters contended that this was
not a correct view. The contractor
had a right to remove the material
or get the consent of the owners to
allow it to remain, when the money
would be paid. The city should not
be left liable.
Lumber Charged
His Lordship said on the point of
the lumber loss he proposed to
charge the plaintiff $100 for that
lost to the'city. -
Mr. Peters said he would say nothing on the point then.
With respect to the extra removal
of muskeg, Mr. Peters pointed out
that this work was done a few days
after the contract started. There
could be little done there then. As
a matter of fact, the ground was
only scratched. No claim was put
in until the suit commenced.
On the point of overhaul on Beach
Place, His Lordship said he felt like
allowing $500 to the contractor. His
ground for this was that at the start
there seemed to be an understanding
by both the city and the contractor
that these low lots would be used.
Mr. Peters, pressing for reasons
for this, got from His Lordship that
he regardeu this work as outside the
contract.
For Plaintiff
Mr. Williams, for the plaintiff,
argued that the estimate fixed by His
Lordship as to the value of lumber
taken was too great.
His Lordship thought that $100
worth was used by the contractor.
On the retaining wali proposition,
Mr. Williams thought there was loss,
but His Lordship could not see it
from the evidence.
To the strike, Mr. Williams gave a
great deal of attention. The contended that the city authorities did not
give the contractor's protection.
His Lordship said "they had other
interests to look after" as well as
those of the contractors. The contractors' Interests were not the only
ones In the city.
He added that he was still of the
opinion that It was outrageous for
the city to try to collect for the time
the contractors lost during the
strike. He, however, did not doubt
but that the authorities acted wisely
in the matter of the strike.
('lies .Mr. Justice Murphy
Mr. Williams, still anxious to linger on the point, contended thai Mr,
Justice Murphy after giving judgment in tlie strike cases had given
the opinion that the authorities had
been very remiss in enforcing law
and order and had not put fortli a
proper effort to do so.
His Lordship said he could not
consider tills. He would not sit in
judgment upon the actions of lhe
authorities. It wan evident they had
done the very best possible.
Mr.   Williams  contended  tl i     In
the Interests of law and orde
Bhould   liavi   provided   v   force  and
seen  that the work was allowed to
go  on  under the contractors,
"It was surely not In the inl il
i>f law and order to leave a bloody
battle on the streets," suggested His
Lordship, it was noi reasonable, he
added, to suppose that in a new pleie-c
like tills there were all the facilities

CONNECTION  WITH OUTSIDE
The letter from Bella Coola in
another column relative to better facilities in the way of postal arrangements with that place from here is
a matter of importance to Prince
Rupert. This city cannot afford to
have any complaints of this kind
from the outlying sections as so
much depends for the future upon
the facilities that are afforded for
easy communication with this port
for all points as far south at least
as Queen Charlotte Sound.
It Is gratifying to know that H. S.
Clements, the member for the district in the House of Commons, is
keenly alive to the advantages ot
these means of communication and
recent letters received from him
show that he has already taken the
matter complainefl of up with the
proper authorities, backed up by
strong representations from Prince
Rupert also. Already a measure of
redress is to he afforded and further
improvements will vearly be made.
CANADIAN  HIGHWAY
ing prospects will shine more brightly with every mile of new steel.
"In regard to railway operation,
one may expect another mild shock
for the difficulties in that connection will not be very great. As a
matter of actual fact, the Canadian
Northern engineers have secured
grades that are quite on a par with
the best in the older districts, and
which do not exceed, at the worst,
one-half of one per cent. This means
a lift getting up to the Divide, at
the maximum, of only 26 feet in a
mile. The average will be but 10
feet on the ascent. Beyond the
'Height,' which is crossed at an altitude of 1,350 feet, there is a great
flat clay belt in which, of course,
(lie grades will hardly amount to
anything worthy of consideration."

HEIGHT OF LAND
Facts   Brought   Out   by   Survey   for
Canadian Northern in New
Ontario
His Royal Highness the Duke of
Connaught put the stamp of royal
approval on the plan to construct a
Canadian highway that will stretch
from coast to coast. His intimation
that the federal and provincial governments would work hand in hand
with a view to improving the highways of Canada has already been of
great assistance to the men who are
taking an active part in the work
of the Canadaian Highway Association, showing as it does that it only
needs proper representation to the
authorities to secure at once the
commencement of this great national
enterprise.

The Canadian Northern Railway
Company claims to have shattered
one illusion as the result of the location of its main line through the
country north of Lake Superior.
Information given out at the Canadian Northern offices was to the effect that the engineers who are
building this section of the main line
to Montreal had found where the
maps had shown them "The Height
of Land" nothing at all in the way
of rock-work at all. The Height of
Land, it is stated, is not high at
all, but is really a low lying swamp.
"There isn't a ridge there," says
the official information, "as well
marked there as is the middle of
the back of a crocdile; or if there
Is, neither the locating or constructing engineers of the Canadian Northern have been able to find it.
"But there is more behind this
crossing of the Height of Land than
the mere shattering of sentiment;
there is the commercial aspect of the
thing to be considered. The big
plateau which Is the highest part of
Ontario is well wooded with a fine
quality of white pine. 8he cutting
of timber in this county was not a
good proposition commercially for
the reason that had the logs been
skidded Into the rivers north of the
Divide, they would have found their
way into James Bay. With the
building of the railway tills difficulty
has been overcome, for the enterprise of the Canadian Northern will
make possible the marketing of the
timber in the big markets of thet
south.
"The rails are now past Ruel,
wliich station, by the way, was named
after the (liief solicitor of the C.N.It.,
and a big staff of men is pushing
the line ever onward toward the
meeting with the construction men
who are working simultaneously
eastward from Port Arthur.
"Henry K. Wicksteed, tlie chief
engineer of locations for the Canadian Northern, hasn't any doubt as
to the ability of the belt through
which the steel passes to give a good
living to several million people. He
believes implicitly that at least two
millions can be located in comparative comfort in the country adjoining and to the north of the Canadian Northern lines. The almost innumerable lakes and rivers abound
with fish—trout, Sturgeon and
whitefish-—affording one sure food
supply. The land Is of good quality,
even if light, and should be very productive. The old Idea prevailing in
the older sections of Ontario that
the new land was but a barren waste
has been shattered and the colonlz-
Although the Canadian Highway
Association has only been in existence for one month, the work it has
accomplished in this short space of
time is conclusive proof that the
organization will be an important
factor in the development of this
country by the building of good
roads, says a New Westminster dispatch.
Letters of encouragement have
been received by the officers from
many cities in the east, and from
Hazelton, Dawson and Alberni, the
latter the western terminus of the
proposed Canadian highway.
Alberni was last week visited by
a travelling representative of the
Canadian Highway Association, who
found every business man in that
town in hearty sympathy with the
objects of the association. Nanaimo
and Victoria have also been canvassed, and each city has added considerably to the strength of the membership of this body.
W. W, Foster, deputy minister of
public works, in a letter to W. J.
Kerr, president of the association,
outlines the following route as the
most practicable for the construction
of British Columbia's portion of the
Canadian highway: Alberni to Victoria, via Nanaimo; Vancouver, Westminster, Hope, Princeton, Rossland,
thence to Trail, cross the Columbia
by the new bridge now in course of
erection, and via Summit Creek,
along the Old Dewdney trail to Cres-
ton, and thence following the main
trunk road into Alberta.
While this route cannot be considered final until all the reports from
the surveyors and engineers have
been submitted to the department of
public works, it is not likely that any
important deviation will be made.'

JEREMIAH H. KUGLER
Limited
It is the prerogative of royalty to
have a style of its own, and in this
respect Queen Mary is a notable example. Brought up from her. earliest years in a simple, unostentatious
manner, she has never adopted the
extremes of fashion. Her taste has
inclined her to graceful, dignified
modes such as become her fine,
handsome figure, and the example
which she sets proves an excellent
influence in checking the taste for
bizarre styles.
The Queen has never worn a hobble skirt, much less a harem costume, and in face of the persistent
and almost universal attempt of fashion arbiters and leaders to induce
women to array themselves in frocks
of the scantiest materials, Her Majesty held to her own mode of reasonably ample skirts, and has thereby won the gratitude of British
manufacturers. Last May, when the
Queen's dislike of the light, scanty
skirts was made known, court dressmakers received back their clients'
costumes in hot haste to put an extra
breadth into the skirts. Some grumbled at the trouble and disarrangement which this caused in the workrooms, but time has shown how
wisely was the Queen's influence directed, not only towards the discountenancing of an exftreme and
awkward mode, but to promoting increased trade in dress stuffs.
The new fashion was reducing costumes to a minimum of material;
manufacturers and drapers were be-
gining to find that the quantity of
goods ordered was falling off, and
that, too, in the Coronation season,
when most people were having more
clothes new than usual and record
sales were anticipated. If the
Queen's influence did not kill the
scanty skirt, it certainly stemmed
the tide of fashion towards greater extremes, and put many thousands
of pounds into the pockets of both
manufacturers and retailers of
ladies' dress materials.
The wisdom of the Queen's example was shown by the aftermath
of unemployment amongst the makers of ladies' underskirts which followed the adoption of the hobble
skirt. For not only does that narrow garment take a small amount of
stuff to make it, but it precludes the
wearing of skirts underneath, and
in consequence the Northampton
girls lost their occupation in the
making of underskirts and were put
to less profitable work. The recent
strike and lockout of some 1,200
girls followed.
Turning to headgear, the Queen's
influence has been entirely on the
side of moderation as to size. Nei-
their Her Majesty nor Princess Mary
ever wear large hats. Many years
ago Queen Alexandra Introduced that
most bewitchingly becoming and
compact form of headgear known as
the Princess bonnet, which ladies
have of late been content to leave
to the almost exclusive possession
of nurses. The light, small toque followed in the train of the Princess
bonnet and still holds its own. For
many years Queen Mary favored the
small toque above all other kinds of
headgear, hut she lias recently
adopted a style of her own in a
hat of moderate size with a neat
small brim shading tlie eyes. Trimmed high on the left side with flowers or ostrich plumes, the Queen's
hat achieves a happy medium between the closely fitting toque and
the modern broad brimmed hat.
The Queen's taste in views may
further be instanced as an example
of her influence in preserving simple
and becoming fashions. Her example
has kept the spotted net in use In
spite of the recurrent crazes for large
spotted and curiously patterned
veils which in extreme cases distorted the features! of the wearer,
and gave the effect of a black crocodile running across the face, or an
alligator attempting to climb one's
cheek bones.
The Queen Is a good business woman, and prides herself on being
thoroughly practical. There is no
thoughtless extravagance In matters
of the royal wardrobe. As Princess
of Wales she frequently went shop-

is queen, and several times a year
she visits the West End emporiums

She prefers to see Wings as they

The Queen's influence is all on'
the side of moderation in dress,
whether as regards the fashion
adopted or the cost, and she is punctilious in dealing with all accounts

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
SPORTS
WOLGAST IS RECOVERING
Followers of the boxing game are
saying today that it will be a year
before Wolgast will be able to battle again. He is in a Los Angeles
hospital recovering from an attack
of appendicitis and an operation for
the relief of that national pastime.
The year dope is wrong. Wolgast
was in perfect condition when nthe
attack struck him and athletes, if
the operation is performed by a capable surgeon and quickly enough,
make very rapid recoveries. They
do not lose strength or vitality.
If Wolgast has the proper care
he could tight again within two
months if necessary. But as the appendicitis operations always seem to
bring a tendency towards increased
weight, Wolgast may find himself
having trouble in a short time to
make the lightweight limit.
CANADIAN RECORDS
The new Canadian athletic records
officially passed by the A. A. U. of C.
are given below.
The list includes one world's record, the throwing of the 56-pound
weight for distance by M. J. McGrath of tbe Irish-American A. C.
of New York, made at the Union's
championships at Montreal on September 24 last.
A complete table of present records 1b appended hereto:
60 yards run—L. J. Sebert, 6 3-5
seconds; October 29, 1910, at Toronto Armories (indoor). No previous recorded mark.
100   yards  run—F.  L.  Lukeman,
9 4-5 seconds; June 4, 1910, at Toronto Island. Equals Canadian record.
300 yards run—F. L. Lukeman,
35 3-6 seconds; April 29, 1911, at
indoor Ontario championships at
Hamilton Armory. This is recorded
as  an  Indoor  record.
600 yards run—John Tressider, 1
minute 20 1-5 seconds; April 29,
1911; at Ontario indoor championships at Hamilton Armory. Allowed
as an indoor record.'
1,000 yards run—John Tressider,
2 minutes 22 1-5 seconds; April 29,
1911, at Ontario indoor championships at Hamilton Armory. This
betters I. S. Parke's mark of 2 minutes 26 2-5 seconds made at Toronto,
April 25,  1908.
Standing broad  jump—A.  Quinn,
10 feet 4 1-2 inches; made at police
games, Toronto, 1904, by representative of Ottawa police. This replaces
the mark of 10 feet 2 1-2 inches
made by G. H. Barer at Olympic
trials, Toronto,  May  23,  1908.
One mile relay race (four men)—
Boston A. A., 3 minutes 24 3-5 seconds; made at Canadian championships, Montreal, September 24, 1911,
and replaces the times of 3 minutes
28 3-5 seconds previously held by
the team of the University of Toronto.
Throwing 16-pound weight for distance—M. J. McGrath, 182 feet 4
inches; at Canadian championships;
Montreal, September 24, 1911. This
extends McGrath's own mark of 17o
feet 7 inches, made at the 1907
championships.
Throwing 56-pound weight for
distance—M. J. McGrath of Irish-
American A. C, New York, 40 feet
6 3-4 inches; made at Canadian
championships, Montreal, September
24, 1911. This remarkable performance, which is also a world's record,
replaced the old mark of 37 feet
made by Duncan Gilles at Vancouver,
September 18, 1909. McGrath broke
the record twice during the day his
other throw being 40 5 3-4 inches.
, YEAR'S  RECORDS
In glancing back over the performances of American track and
field athletics during the Outdoor
season of 1911, it is gratifying to
note the number of records equalled
and broken. In almost every branch
of the sport new figures were created and they show as nothing else
could how constant und consistent Is
the development of champions, During the past summer, world's marks
that had stood the test of time for
ten, fifteen and even twenty-five
years, went by the board, as well as
quite recent ones probably harder to
dethrone, because each part of a second clipped or inch added makes so
much more difficult the task of the
next comers.
The list of records here appended
is not complete, but it shows that
some good work was done:
R. C. Craig of Michigan University
was the first to attain record form.
At the Pennsylvania relay carnival In
Philadelphia on May 6 he equalled
Bernie Wefer's world's standard of
21 1-5 seconds for sprinting 220
yards, and this time he made twice
at the intercollegiate games in Cambridge on May 27.
At the latter meet sensational performances were shown in middle dis
tance running by T. S. Berna and
J. P. Jones, both of Cornell. Jones,
who is now acclaimed the best mller
ever produced by any country, stepped the mile in 4 minutes 15 2-5
seconds, taking from Tommy Con-
neff the former mark of 4 minutes
15 3-5 seconds, which had rested
peacefully since 1895; and Berna, in
the two-mile race, breasted the tape
In 9 minutes 21 1-5 seconds, pushing aside the record of 9 minutes
26 3-5 seconds, which he had himself created a year before.
On May 28, at Celtic Park, Martin
Sheridan of the American Athletic
Association, contributed one of his
numerous discus throwing standards.
He sent the missile 141 feet 4 3-8
inches, and the best previous distance, to his own credit, wsb 140
feet 10 1-2 inches.
Matt McGrath of the New York
Athletic Club scored on the same day
with the 3 o-pound weight. The event
was a new one and he won it with
53 feet 11 inches, which established
a record.
The Irish-American games at Celtic Park on May 30 saw three of the
home men win titles. Daniel Ahearn
spanned 50 feet 11 inches in the hop,
step and jump, as against his own
mark of 49 feet 7 3-4 inches; Gwyn
Henry, the former Texas sprinter,
lowered Charles Sehrill's time of
1889 for running 125 yards from
12 2-5 seconds to 12 1-' seconds, and
John J. Eller negotiated 250 yards
of low hurdles in 29 1-5 seconds,
putting quite a dent into George
Schwegler's record of 31 4-5 seconds,
also of the 1889 vintage.
George Bonhag of the Irish-American Athletic Ciub demonstrated on
June 3 that he had lost none of his
great speed by running three miles
in 14 minutes and ^2 seconds, which
dislodged W. Day's mark ot 24 minutes 39 seconds, untouched since
1890.
John Eller added to his many
laurels on the following day, when
he took 75 yards of low timber in
:09 1-5, supplanting the record of
:09 2-5, held jointly by himself, his
brother Robert and Roger Bacon.
At the above meet Daniel Ahearn
also scored, boosting his own recently made mark for the hop-step-and-
jump from 60 feet 11 inches to 51
feet 4 1-2 inches.
On June 11 It was the turn of
Piatt Adams, the versatile all round
athlete of the New York, A. C, to
distinguish himself. He covered
ing away from M. W. Ford the stand-
103 feet in nine standing jumps, tak-
ard of 100 feet 4 inches, which he
had held since 1885. It Is worthy
of mention, too, that Dan Ahearn,
who jumped within a few inches of
Adam's, also beat Ford's figures.
At the national championships in
Pittsburg on June 3 and July 1 only
one record was broken and one
equalled, although the cream of the
country's athletes were on hand. OI-
lie Snedigar of the Olympic Club of
San Francisco hurled the javelin 165
feet 2 inches, beating B. Brood's
best previous throw of 163 feet 1
inch, and John Eller, I. A. A. A., took
220 yards of low hurdles in 0:24 4-5,
equalling the world's time. T. T.
Cooke, the former Cornell athlete,
now representing the Cleveland A. 0„
cleared the bar at 13 feet in the
pole vault, but did not give enough
throuw to the pole in leaving it, and
it tumbled after him, carrying the
horizontal stick with it. Had it not
been for this unfortunate occurrance
he would now hold the world's honors, for the record by Leland Scott
is 12 feet 10 7-8 inches.
The fall games of the I. A. A. A.
on September 5 were again the occasion for a triangular record breaking
feat. Martin McGrath, now competing unattached, threw the fifty-six
pound weight 39 feet 9 inches, beating Flanagan's best performance of
38 feet 8 Inches; Louis Scott of the
South Paterson A. C. disposed of an
international mark by running 5,000
eters (approximately 3 miles 85
yards) In 15:23 1-5, and an I.A.A.A.

Good, Sound Reasons for

Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening into tho body there
is a   Malleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed In such joints.    They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus stove  bolts and stove putty.    It's
Important to every one using or buying

Ground Today
Cents—5 Cents Cash
Read this offer over carefully. Be
sure that it is right, then don't wait.
The owners take a chance with you.
They put up the coal lands and you
put up the money to prove the coal,
one-half of the stock for you, and
one-half for them. This is one of
the fairest and best offers ever made
to the public under ironclad conditions. A business proposition from
start to finish, there is nothing on
the market like it. Leases and Crown
grants to aver 3,500 acres of the best
coal lands on Queen Charlotte Islands
are being conveyed free from all encumbrances to the Northern Anthracite Collieries, Ltd., capital stock
1,500,000 shares, par value of $1.00
each; one-half of this stock for the
treasury and one-half for the owners
of the land. The first 100,000 of
these shares of par value of $1.00
each, non-assessable and fully paid
up, are to be sold at 15c, 5c with
application, 5c in 30 days and 5c in
60 days. The proceeds from this
block of stock will be used proving
these coal lands with a Diamond
Drill under special contract, and in
charge of competent management. It
is expected that the proceeds from
this first block of stock will be sufficient to put down at least three or
more boreholes of 1,000 feet each.
This will undoubtedly cut one or two
seams of splendid coal—then see
your stock jump. Satisfactory tenders have been accepted and a contract let to the Diamond Drill Contracting Company of Spokane, Wash.,
for the boring and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe side, a further
block of 100,000 shares of treasury
stock will be offered at 25c per share,
5c on application and 5c per month
until paid, as soon as the first block
has all been subscribed.
Now, use your own judgment., but
consider carefully what your chances
are of making $85.00 on an investment of $15.00 in six months, or
$1,000 on an investment of $150.00,
for as sure as the sun rises and sets
this stock will go to $1.00 at least as
soon as the drill cuts through the
seams of splendid coal that are surely
there, according to all experts' reports of the highest obtainable authority, who have reported on the Queen
Charlotte Islands coal measures as
follows: T. R. Marshall, F.C.S., 1902;
Dr.    George    M.    Dawson,     D. S.,
A.R.A.R.S.M., F.G.S., 1878; H. E.
Parrish, John J. Langdale, 1867;
James Deans, 1872; James Parkinson, 1888; R. W. Ellis, 1906; T. B.
Cory, of the State of Washington,
U. S. A., and our own expert, C. F. J.
Galloway, B.Sc, who is among the
best authorities In B. C.
These reports cover first the Wilson-Robinson coal fields, three miles
north of this coal land; second, the
Old Cowgate coal fields, almost adjoining on the west; third, the Alfred
Bay coal fields on the south; and
fourth, the company's own coal, all
of which are positive evidence that
this is one of the best coal fields on
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Situate on Graham Island, Bearskin Bay,
one of the best harbors in the north,
at the gateway of transportation to
all points of the world, and at the
very doors of Queen Charlotte City;
in fact, a portion of this coal underlies the townsite. No railroads to
build—just lead the coal from the
mines to the boats. These are facts
that defy contradiction, and within
five days the Diamond Drill will be
on the ground and in operation. This
is the only way anyone can tell how
many millions of tons of coal there
is in the property.
All applications will be filed in
order received, and only 100,000 will
be sold at 15c.
How many times in your life have
you had a chance like this? A square
deal for once at least in a stock
proposition, with almost a certainty
of the stock being worth $1.00 before
you have made your third payment
at 15c. Do not hesitate. Send in
your application today.
For further information call or
write to the head office of the company, 506 Pacific Building, where the
report, of C. F. J. Galloway, B.S.C.,
on this coal land can be seen. His
report is all that could be asked,
practically saying that the coal is
there beyond a doubt, with sufficient
evidence in sight to warrant drilling
and development work at once.
Paragraph From Mr. Galloways
Report
"The easiest seam to prove will be
the Cowgitz, as its horizon, is known.
I should, therefore, recommend you
to put down a borehole near the eastern end of your easternmost section.
At the point marked C on the map
the position of this seam should be
passed through at a depth of about
500 feet, the Camp Anthracite seam
being probably passed through In the
same hole, if it occurs at all in this
locality."
All promoters' stock is to be pooled
until $200,000 has been raised for
the purpose of developing the mine.
In conclusion, you will have the
satisfaction of knowing that your
money is all goinng into proving the
coal is there, not into the promoters'
pockets nor to pay for a dead horse
of any kind, as the coal leases and
titles are all paid for and clear of
all encumbrances and will always be
a valuable asset. Fill out the application form for any number of
shares you want and address your
application to H, F. McRae & Co.,
Second Avenue, Prince Rupert, who
are the authorized agents to receive
applications and receipt for same.
All cheques or money orders should

CONTRACTOR WINS
AS TO DAMAGES
(Continued From Page Three)
at hand to control hundreds of men
on strike.
"They could have got them," suggested Mr. Williams.
Best  Done  by  City
"Perhaps they could," returned
the court, "but after tlie event I
am not going to. sit in judgment.
I would not as a judge sitting here
be prepared under all the circumstances when life and death were at
issue to pass judgment upon the
actions of tho police force and the
civic authorities, who were on the
ground, and say that they were negligent in their duty.
"It Is probable that the very best
was done under the conditions that
could be done."
Mr. Williams contended that there
was an absolute duty upon the corporation to provide protection.
His Lordship said he could find
no authorities that went to show
that this was to serve as a guarantee
to contractors. Me wanted to know
it Mr. Williams had found any case
In which a corporation had been
made to pay for failing to give this
protection.
Mr. Williams said that he had not.
His Lordship said he was not go;*
ing to make a precedent.
Mr. Williams said that If there
had been an adequate force there
would have been no trouble.
His Lordship: "Well, it's easy to
say that after the event."
His    Lordship    immediately   pro
ceeded to give judgment In the case.
Taking the statement of claim of the
plaintiffs, he disposed of the items
in succession. As to the claim of
5750 for removing waste from the
lots, he said the city's claim 'was
clearly one of damages. The sum
wliich the city proposed to retain
would be as trustee for the pwner.
No claim was before him on the part
of any of the owners against the
city. If the case were made out
a contractor was insolvent or there
was an Insolvent surety or a claim
against tlie city, a case might be
made out to obtain a sum.
He would strike this claim oul
and order Ihe $750 paid to the contractor.
On the old lumber count he would
allow the city $100. Tlie burden
was on the city to show the amount
of lumber taken. It was impossible
io keep an exact account of the lumber taken.
On the point of liquidated damages His Lordship said he would give
a deduction of fifty days to cover
tho strike period and other delays.
Would  Have Reserved Derision
Ho could not regard this amount.
named in the contract as pre-estlmat-
eed, but In view of the case quoted by
Mr. Peters, the view might be that
later authorities looked upon the
point differently to what he bad expressed his view.
He would have reserved judgment
on this point had it not been for the
evidence of the city engineer that
there had been an error of judgment,
in fixing tlie time. Were the legal
points the only ones, he would have
reserved  judgment.     But  according
to the engineer the time was inequitable. He put the odium on the city
of seeking a decision on a legal point
when in the matter of justice and
common honesty it had not a leg
to stand on. He allowed $3,300 on
this point.
On the point of $92.50 for extra
removal of muskeg, he allowed that
claim.
As to the allowance claimed for
extras on account of the city introducing retaining walls, he found no
balance of disadvantage against the
contractors and decided in favor of
the city.
Ou tlie culvert he found no loss
to the contractors. This point was
covered in the contract, the city being allowed to proceed with its work
during the progress of the work.
As to Strike
As to the strike, he remained of
the same opinion as previously
stated.
The first question as far as the
corporation was concerned was as to
whom it owed a duty. It was not to
tlie contractors alone. Il was to the
whole community, and even beyond
that. It was a discretionary power
that was reposed in it. It was a
delicate question for a judge to sit
in judgment after tlie event and
call in judgment the actions of those
charged with tlie enforcement of the
law. He bad found no negligence
em the part of lhe corporation. It
•eiiglit very well leave been hi the
best interests of the city. Ile could
not see that any claim was recoverable .by the contractors. The city
was not responsible for damages.
This  did  not modify  in  any  degree
his feeling as to the iniquity of the
city to attempt to recover from the
contractors for loss during the time
of the strike.
He found that there was to he a
large amount of waste to he dumped
on low lying lots. Later this was
wound would not be allowed. It
was.- understood then that no waste
would be deposited below Beach
Place. He would allow 2 5 cents a
yard for 2,000 yards deposited below Beach P?ace, or $500, on that
count.
A Repriiiiniitl
As to costs, the natural order
would be to allow general costs to
ihe plaintiff, deducting thai in
which the other side hud succeeded.
This would be hard to work out.
Me had therefore decided to apportion them himself.
There had been a loss of time
early in the case from an unwarranted attempt on behalf of the
plaintiff in establish a claim that
there was no time iimll and nisei to
attach   oil i   to  the  city   engineer
on a charge of collueion. On these
points they had failed entirely, and
he felt they Bbould be penalized o
an extent. He would allow rilaln-
til'f two-thirds of tho costs of tlie
action.
Alex. Manson, representing Williams & Mil- on, Bald there hud been
no Intention on the part of his firm
to easl any reflections.
"You made a distinctly ill choice
of your English then,*' returned His
Lordship.
Mr. Manson admitted that perhaps
they had, hut pleaded that they were
both young men in practice.    He did
•Lot think it should call for reduced
counsel fees as there had been a
lot of work involved.
His Lordship said he would allow
the two of them $100 a day counsel
: fees.
Kelly Gels Judgment
In the case of Kelly vs. City of
Prince Rupert, tried a few days before, Ills Lordship gave judgment
immediately following the other, ilo
gave judgment for the plaintiff with
costs.

PUBLIC ARE WARNED
Bulletin Dealing With Damages From
Christmas Decorations Issued
From Victoria.
Superintendent   of   Insurance  Gives
Timely Information and Warns
Those   Interested
Ernest F. Gunther, superintendent
of insurance for the province of British Columbia, was issued a bulletin
intended to serve as a warning to
those who are concerned in preparing
for Christmas celebrations. He
points out some of the dangers that
should be avoided in this. The bulletin sets forth the following facts:
Christmas Holiday Hazards
Fires due to carelessness In connection with the decoration of stores,
churches, schools and homes for the
Christmas season are more numerous
than is generally imagined. Complete statistics are not available, but
information collected shows that
such fires are numerous, costly from
a money standpoint, and attended
with much suffering ami deplorable
loss of life. It is estimated that last
year there were 500 such fires in
the United  States.
It cannot he too often insisted
that the majority of fires is preventable. Decorations are dangerous. There should be no carelessness.
Instances of Carelessness
It is careless to tamper with electric wiring to produce or facilitate
displays; to use cotton batting in a
show window and on or under a
Christmas tree to represent snow; To
allow the inexperienced and thoughtless to do the decorating; to hang
inflammable material where it
touches or may he pushed or blown
against stove pipes, steam pipes,
lamps, gas, or electric lights; to use
celluloid ornaments in decorating; to
allow children to light candles on a
tree; to leave matches where children can get them for the purpose;
to allow children to touch an illuminated tree; to leave an illuminated
tree unwatched; to allow paper and
rubbish to accumulate in the premises and about the furnace, owing
to pressure of business.
Last Year's Experience
A few of last year's Christmas fires
are set forth as follows: Boy's costume, trimmed with cotton batting,
caught fire from candle, boy and a
visitor being slightly burned; scholar
fatally burned, due to her clothes
catching fire from candle on school
Christmas tree; another scholar fatally burned from same cause at another school; fire was caused by a
toy motion picture machine; the
film, while heing exhibited, flapped
over on to top of lamp and ignited;
children ignited cotton decorations
used to represent snow around
Christmas tree, the fire spreading
throughout first floor and members
of family seriously burned; children
In lighting candles on Christmas tree
set fire to decorations; cat upset
Christinas tree, doing $100 damage;
gas jet set fire to Christmas decorations.
Mercantile
A lighted candle ignited decorations in show windows of hardware
Btore; fire spread rapidly, due to
holly, mistletoe and smilax decoration; store profusely decorated with
evergreen boughs and festoons ignited from defective electric wiring;
fire spread rapidly and burned
fiercely; loss, $212,154.
Suggestions
The instances quoted all suggest
what should be avoided. If read
with the word "Don't" before them,
they become rules. "Don't tamper
with electric wiring." Smoking
should not he allowed where there
are inflammable decorations. Inflammable means "apt to take fire."
Asbestos fibre will represent snow.
Metallic tinsel is better than paper.
Let there be no Christmas horrors
in  British  Columbia.

**************************
One of the most valuable medical
reports ever issued by a province of
Canada is that of the Royal Commission on Tuberculosis in 'Quebec.
It would be difficult to praise too
highly the exhaustive "abor of the
commissioners of which the report
is the fruit. But for one thing, it
might he said that for the next ten
or twenty years no other province
need appoint a royal commission to
report on the subject of tuberculosis,
so thoroughly have the Quebec commissioners covered the ground; and
that is the fact, made plain in the
report itself, that circumstances in
one province, as regards consumption, may differ very .widely from
those in another. Quebec has revealed conditions not encountered
elsewhere, and the conduct of thet
anti-tuberculosis crusade in that
province must be plrnned with a
view to these special conditions. It
is doubtful if anywhere else in the
world women are more subject to
tuberculosis than men; it is doubtful
if elsewhere in Canada the death
rate from phthisis is almost as high
in the country districts as in the
cities.
In the province of Quebec the
death rate from tuberculosis is much
higher than it is in Ontario and in
the neighboring American states, and
is is higher among the French-speaking population of the province than
among the English-speaking residents of Quebec. It appears to the
commissioners that the causes of this
remarkable condition are found in
the greater poverty of the Freneh-
Canadaion population, the fact that
they neglect or are ignorant of many
of the simplest rules of health, and
that they form the greater number
of artisans and laborers and are thus
more exposed to the unhygienic influences' of industrial work. The
English-speaking population, according to the report, fill the better industrial posts, are better paid in
consequence, and live in healthier
surroundings. The commissioners
say that reform must proceed along
the lines of attempting to Improve
the conditions of industrial work for
the French-Canadians, and disseminating among them a greater knowledge of the laws of health.
Regarding the remarkable fact
that in Quebec women fall more
readily victims to the disease than
men, the commissioners say that for
the six winter months, the women
of the province, as a rule, spend
most of their time immured indoors,
and to preserve warmth the houses
are too frequently sealed against any
fresh air. Even In the summer it
is the custom to keep the blinds
down and the windows closed in
order to make the houses moderately
cool. They mention the fact that
the  high   birth  rate  among rench-
Canadian women may also be a factor, since, following childbirth, the
resistance to infection of any sort
is lowered. There is also to be considered the fact that the larger families of the French-Canadians make
necessary the huddling together of
many persons in small rooms, a condition that is highly favorable to the
development of the tubercle bacilli.
More than twice as many French-
Canadian women die of tuberculosis,
according to population, as English
women. Compared with the incidence of the disease in the male
sex, that among the women is as
222 compared with 164.
As regards the relation of climate
to the disease, the commissioners
find that, apart from the effects of
people keeping too much indoors, it
is an insignificant, one. The disease is slightly more prevalent in
March than in any other month in
tlie year, and is slightly less prevalent in September. They do not
fail to point to the probability of the
germs of the disease, which manifests themselves in the spring and
summer, having established themselves in the winter months. Cold
in itself is not more favorable to
the growth of the bacilli than heat,
and the report quotes approvingly
tue words of Dr. Trudeau, who says:
"It is not such much where the consumptive lives as how he lives that
is of the most importance." The
climate of Quebec is not necessarily
more favorable for the spread of the
disease than that of British Columbia.
Just how serious the problem of
tuberculosis is for the province of
Quebec may be judged from the fact
that one-third of all the deaths in
the province are attributed to it. It
is more deadly than all other infectious  diseases  combined.    Only  in
fantile diarrhoea of the all specific
diseases commits greater ravages. In
tuberculosis more than half the victims fall between the ages of 15 and
34, and more than one-third between
the ages of 20 and 45. Only two
states in the Union, which keep accurate records, have a higher death
rate; that in Montreal is probably
higher than any other city on this
continent or in the Britisii Isles, and
in comparison with seventeen civilized countries, Quebec stands sixth
as regards the death rate from tuberculosis. A first long stride toward Improving her position has
been made by the publication oil
the valuable report from which these
facts are taken.
