PRINCE RUPERT'S MARCH FORWARD
ERA OF PROSPERITY
OPENS UPON CITY
G.T.P. Will Take an Active Part in Developing the Place
in Preparation for Via Immense Rush Which
Expected to Begin at
Any Time.
At no period in the history of
Prince Rupert has the indications
for a decided and a lasting movement
in a commercial way been as bright
as it is at the present. Capital is
already interested here and is preparing to flow in in quantity. The
result of the votes on Saturday gives
an assurance on the outside that will
be felt in no uncertain way. There
now remains nothing in the way of
the G. T. P. carrying out its proposed
improvements, the taxation question
having been settled in a manner
agreeable to all concerned. There
has been a provision made for the
expenditure of one-half a million dollars, which will go to provide a water system and an electric plant that
will meet all the immediate demands
and prepare the way for the carrying out of a larger scheme for electric energy to meet the requirements
of this metropolis.
Tells   of   Plans
Charles M. Hays, the president of
the G. T. P., and E. J. Chamberlin,
the vice president of the same company, talked freely about their plans
for Prince Rupert before leaving the
city on Monday morning. There was
no boasting, no attempt to stampede
the citizens, for the vote was then
taken and no talk of theirs could
have any influence upon the results.
Mr. Hays, who returned from Hazelton on Sunday, speaking of the
plans of the company for the immediate future, admitted that the expenditure by his company in the city
ot Prince Rupert was but to begin
in earnest now.. There would be no
waiting, he said, but work would
start at once. The company would
not depend upon the exact terms of
their agreement with the city in the
matter of work but the different undertakings would be proceeded with
just as quickly as they'could get the
operations started.
Clearing for Station
Mr.Chamberlin, the general manager, under whose supervision the
actual work is carried out, said he
was instructing the local head of
the company, Mr. W. C. C. Mehan,
general superintendent, to start work
just as quickly as he could upon the
clearing away of the site for the permanent station and the station yards.
Starting with the flats where the
temporary repair shops are now located, the rock would be removed
to the proper level over to the station site, the front of which would
likely be about where the present
city hall is located. All the rock
between that and the present main
track would be removed, putting It
on a level with the railway line as
it existed now.
This will allow the station to be
united with the necessary sidetracks
on the water side of it and make the
main entrance from the city side on
the second floor of the building.
Overhead Crossing
Sixth Street will be carried onto the
waterfront by means of ar. overhead
crossing  which   will   pass   over   the
BY-LAWS ARE CARRIED
By a decided majority over the vote actually required the two
bylaws submitted to the property owners on Saturday were carried. There was general rejoicing in the city in conseqence as the
effect of the passage of these bylaws cannot help having a decided
effect upon the business of the city.
The vote cast was a large one for a bylaw vote and in no uncertain way was it made eiear that the will of the citizens was decidedly In favor of the measures. ?

The city council has been asked to

where the work will be taken up by
the company and carried on to meet

When the work is done there will
be access given to the waterfront so
as not to interfere with the traffic

undergoing a radical change. The
company intends to carrying Third

direction of the station and an overhead crossing will likewise be provided there to get on to the waterfront across the main tracks of the

Rupert Is to enter upon an era of
commercialism that will see no letup until the city assumes Its proper
place as the established centre of

With the immense amount of work
that has to be done there is no reason why the city should not see unbounded prosperity.
There are indications that in the
building line the coming fall and winter will be decidedly active and those
in that line of work are expecting
big things.
London   Investors
Realizing that the investment in
Prince Rupert could not be excelled
anywhere in the Dominion, investors
from London and elsewhere have not
been slow during the past few weeks
to make purchases here. Practically
every visitor representative of financial houses who has come here during the last three months has made
an investment here.
Among the latest to makek purchases were Stephane .Kahn and E.

H. S. CLEMENTS GIVEN VERY HEARTY RECEPTION
H. S. Clements, the Conservative
candidate in Comox-Atlin, Is in the
city and district, where he will spend
the greater part of his time until
election day. He reached the city
yesterday and was recorded a most
hearty reception. It was made evident to him before the evening
closed that in Prince Rupert, in common with the rest of the northern
portion of the district, he could well
expect a most gratifying majority
over his opponent. After a tour of
the southern portion of the district
Mr. Clements Is sure of a good majority over Mr. Ross. The north is
preparing to duplicate this so that
on September 21 there can be little
doubt as to his having an easy victory.
Mr. Clements arrived by the steamer Princess Royal, which reached
here about 6 o'clock. In spite of
the fact that Monday was a holiday
and with charming weather conditions a great many picnics were in
progress there was an immense
crowd down to greet the Conservative candidate, who is a former resident of the city.
The members of the Conservative
executive and of the association were
ou the wharf to greet him, while
the Metlakatla band also attended
and as the steamer pulled in to the
wharf played the "Maple Leaf Fo: j
ever."
Mir. Clements was greeted with ]
cheers as he stepped on shore and
was given a hearty welcome by his
many friends. A procession was
quickly formed and headed by the
Union Jack and the band the crowd
to the number of at least one thousand reached the committee room of
the party at the corner of Second
Avenue and Sixth street.
Addressed  Crowd
Amidst ringing cheers, before entering the rooms, which were altogether too small to accommodate the
crowd which gathered, Mr. Clements
gave a short address from the front
of the building. He thanked the
citizens for the reception and as a
pioneer of the city he could not help
remarking upon the wonderful
changes that had been made In the
city during the past year. It spoke
well, he said, for the energy of the
citizens and promised well for the
future.
He complimented the band, and expressed a wish to meet every citizen leaving the city to continue the
campaign, which was being fought
out upon a question upon which he
felt he would have the hearty support of many Liberals, as well as all
Conservatives.
Evening Meeting
In the evening, in Melntyre Hall,
Mr. Clements addressed a house
filled to its capacity pon the issues
of the day.
The meeting was called on rather
short notice but was packed to the
doors. It was felt that Mr. Clements should be given practically the
whole time and for over an hour and
a half he held his audience deeply
interested in the question of reciprocity. Mr. Clements is a very fine
speaker, at all times fair to his opponents, and prepared always to
allow every man Hie right to his own
opinions on all points.
William .Manson presided and
briefly introduced the candidate, setting forth his own views with regard
lo the reciprocity agreement, He
(.greed that Canada should be allowed to develop its own resources within the confines of the Dominion.
This would be to the best interests
of the country as a whole.
Magnificent Reception
The reception accorded to Mr. Clements was a most enthusiastic one.
As he cae forward to speak the audience cheered him to the echo.
Addressing himself to the points
at issue, he proceeded to explain his
attitude towards the reciprocity pact.
This had been entered into by the
Ottawa government without the consideration that should have been
given to it by the members of the
government. The United States government had carefully collected Information relative to it before proceeding to enter into the pact and
had therefore made an arrangement
which was exactly what was desired
by them. The Canadian government,
however, has not taken the same pre
cautions. The people of the United
States could* always be depended
upon to look well after their owrf
interests.
Mr. Clements made a strong plea
for the conservation of the natural
resources of the country for the
building up of industries on this side
of the line. The Untied States was
seeking Canada's timber and pulp
wood. It would be to the advantage
of Canada to see the raw material
worked up in this country. He had
been at Powell River only a few days
before and had seen the work that
was going on there, carried out by
capital from the United States. That
was "s it should be. If the United
State^ capitalists wanted to develop
the raw material of the cpuntry, they
were welcome to do so provided they
came here and gave employment to
Canadians. The view it took was
one of the best advantage to Canada,
it   was  not  desirable  that  the  raw
material should be shipped to the
United States to be manufactured
there, but on the contrary it should
be used up on this side of the line.
The Wheat Question
Mr. Clements touched on the
wheat question. He showed that the
United States mills had to seek Can-
adlian wheat in order to mix with
their own wheat and bring up the
standard of the flour produced. Only
two states, Dakota and Minnesota,
produced a wheat that compared with
that of the Canadian prairies. The
result was that the wheat of those
states, which was used to bring up
the grade of the general flour produced In the United States, commanded a large price. But Canada
did not want its wheat shipped to
Minneapolis and elsewhere in the
United States to be ground into flour
and to maintain immense mills
there. It wanted the mills established on Canadian soil.
Conservative Rally!
PUBLIC MEETING WILL BE HELD IN THE
Empress Theatre,
Wednesday Evening, Sept. 6
Commencing at 8 o'clock
to be addressed by
H. S. CLEMENTS
the Conservative Candidate for Comox-Atlin, and others.
Everyone is invited to attend
Seats will be reserved for ladies.
GOD SAVE THE KING
He a'so made allusion to the lead
industry, when, owing to the excessive duty imposed by the United
States against Canadian lead, it became necessary for the Canadian government to give the lead producers
a bounty. The government of Canada in making this agreement had
not shown the same astuteness that
the United States had or some of the
difficult points, like that pertaining
to lead, would have been settled.
Corrects False Impressions
Before concluding, Mr. Clements
took occasion to correct some wrong
impressions that It was sought to
create with reference to himself. He
referred to the report that had been
circulated that he had not, allowed
.Mr. Cowper to speak at his meeting
in Alberni. Mr. Clements gave the
facts with respect to that episode.
Duncan Ross had held a meeting a
Ifew evenings before in Alberni and
had refused the Conservative speakers a chance to be heard. When the
Alberni committee was arranging the
meeting, In the absence of Mr, Clements, Mr. Brewster, M.P.P., and Mr.
Cowper had asked the privilege to
speak. The Conservative committee
recalled the facts of a tew nights before and refused the privilege. When
Mr. Clements reached Alberni In the
evening'he wns told eif the iniiile'iit.
He had never heard anything of Mr.
Cowper before and supposing him to
he one of the paid stumpers of the
Liberal party lie had fallen in line
with his committee, having In mind
what had been done at the Ross meeting. He, however, did express a wish
thnt Mr. Brewster, the member In
tlie legislature for the constituency,
I should be heard If lie wished it. This
he did out of respect to Mr. Brewster
owing to the position he occupied.
The final decision was that Mr. Brewster would tint speak, the Liberals
agreeing tlmt under the circumstances the Conservative committee
was justified in the stand taken. Hi'
had heard no more of this until lie
saw Liberal pnpi-rs with the distorted
reports as to the Incident.
Afraid of N'one
Mr. Clements said he was not
afraid  to meet  Duncan  Ross or Mr.
j Cowper or anyone else to discuss this
question. He would be glad if a
meeting could be arranged before the
campaign ended when he could meet
either of them, which he was prepared to do.
Former   Position
This with reference to the report
which was being circulated by Mr.
Ross and his friends that lie I Mr.
Clements) had, while in the House,
delivered a speech In which he favored reciprocity. Mr. Clements
said his old offer to resign if it
were shown he had delivered such a
speech held good. lie might, by
taking parts of the speech, find arguments to heur out the contention but
if the speeeh as a whole or any considerable portion of it were read it
would he found that, his stand then
wus just the same as at present.
.Mr. Clements closed with an a|v
peal to the electors to forget party
and too look to Canada and Canada's
welfare only in deciding this question. He fell convinced he would

CANADA'S  NEW   MINERAL
On the east coast of Bonaparte
River, about half way between Car-
gill and Scottie Creeks, In the dis-
tricl of Lillooet, British 'Columbia,
a new mineral was recently found.
Little has been heard of the discovery, but it is recorded with due modesty in the latest report of the geo-
logi'iel survey branch of tlie mines
department. I-'. Suiie-.-, gold commissi* ner ;it Clinton, B. c, forwarded
the sample to the department, It
was made up of two specimens, one
of which, measuring four Inches in
length .-iini  two Inches in  thickness
SLOGAN  MIXING
Southeastern British Columbia Looks
Good Again as an Ore
Producer
Prospectors returning to Spokane
from Southeastern British Columbia
report that the Siocan district is coming hack as one of the Important silver and lead producers on the continent ,-is a result of deep mining
operations. The Siocan camp paid
more than $5,000,000 In dividends in
the early days, before the Introduc
tion    of   present   methods,   when   it
consisted of the mineral about to be j "'«» generally believed that the ore
described along with some scattered
remnants of decomposed rock matter; the other specimen, a much larger, one, consisted tor tlie most part
of decomposed rock matter of a character like that just mentioned. It
has a schistose structure, but it has
so far decayed that its original composition is completely obscured, and
little more than a residue of silaca
remains. It is not at all unlikely,
however, that the original of this
rock has furnished the basic constituent of tlie associated mineral.
The mineral occurs in the form of
seams and scattered patches in the
altered rock matter just described.
Some of these seams attain a thickness of nearly half an inch. In general they present a moderately coarse
columnar structure; occasionally,
however, the mineral is seen to assume a delicately fibrous form. In
the material at hand no distinct crystal? have been observed, and the
cleavage, although clearly prismatic,
is not very well defined. The mineral is readily friable, and breaks
with a fine, subconcboidal fracture.
It has a pearly lustre, and its color
is white, modified by a delicate green
tint; it is opaque, even on very thin
edges, and has a bitter, saline taste.
Before the blowpipe, on charcoal,
the mineral swells and emits bubbles of vapor, but does not melt, and
ultimately leaves an infusible mass,
a solution of cobalt nitrate and re-
ignited the mass becomes pink. In
the dosed tube it yields a large
amount of water, which reacts neu-
ttral to test papers. It dissolves
readily in cold water, yielding a clear
solution; after addition of ammonium chloride this solution does not
give a precipitate with either ammonia or ammonia carbonate, bufc
when a solution of sodium phosphate
is added to the ammoniacal solution
a copius white precipitate of ammonium-magnesium phosphate is thrown
down. The aqueous solution when
acidulated with hydrochloric acid
gives, with barium eiiloride, an
abundant while precipitate of barium
sulphate. %
The specific gravity of the mineral at 15 deg 5 C. was found to he
1.757, and an analysis of selected
material, which, however, still contained some silica, gave the following results:
Sulphur   dioxide       34.."12
Magnesia       17.15
Water        46.42
Insoluble matter  (silica)   ....     1.78
99.ST
Omitting the included silica, it will
be found that the composition of the
mineral agrees very eiosely with that
required for the hexahydrate of sulphur magnesium, which hitherto lias

labratory.     The  agreement   will   he
| bodies were chiefly on the surface.
Since then large ore bodies have
been discovered at depth, as'predicted years ago hy Graham B. Dennis
of Spokane, after making a careful
study of conditions in Northeastern
Washington and the Boundary
country.
Le  Roi  to   Reopen
Andrew G. Larson, consulting engineer of the Le Roi Mining Company, is making an examination of
the Siocan Star property, which was
tied up several years by litigation,
and it is expected that development
work will begin within sixty days
with a view to making shipments
the coming winter. Work also is
progressing at depth in the Rambler-
Cariboo, the Standard and the Lucky
Jim. The last named was thoroughly examined hy engineers for the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
prior to awarding the contract for
the spur track for Tliree Forks to
serve that and the Rambler-Cariboo
mine. There is about $1,000,000
worth of high grade lead-zinc ore in
sight. Thirty-eight cars of ore purchased by the Empire Zinc Company
of Denver from the Lucky Jim Zinc
Company has a zinc content of more
than 50 per cent, as shown by the
settlement statement.
Large .Deposit Uncovered
The Rambler-Cariboo paid $225,-
000 in dividends to its stockholders
ten years ago through mining by a
shaft 800 feet. On account of the
unusual amount of water encountered it became impossible to mine by
sinking, and the'company started a
long tunnel to open the ore bodies
at depth and drain the mine. Under
the direction of W. E. Zwieky, this
work has been accomplished, and an
upraise from the 1,450 foot level
completed to the 800 foot level, and
the ore bodies drifted on from the
1,250, 1,500, 900 and 800 foot levels.
This development, which has taken
years to accomplisn, has opened a
large body of high grade silver-lead
ore. The ore taken ount during the
development and hauled by teams
to rail transportation was nearly sufficient to pay for the work. With
the completion of the Spur, tramway
and mill the Rambler-Cariboo should
earn satisfactory prot'ts. The depth
now attained insures long life for
the mine.
Can   Handle MM) Tons
Equipment costing $125,000, now
being installed at the Standard mine,
will be ready for operation early in
October, and permit a daily handling
of 200 tons of ore. About 50 per
cent of the output will be clean
shipping ore. Figured from that
standpoint, the Standard should
earn big profits. The unusually
high returns that will be shown in
the way of dividends by the Rambler-
Cariboo    and    the    Standard,    aside
made plainly evident by a reference from a large tonnage of production,

OX ISOCHEIt DE BOULE
nimble A-  Peiiibertons Claims Near
Hazelton   Being
Developed
That mining development on
.Messrs. Trimbe & Pemberton's group
of claims up Juniper Creek on Rocher
dei Boule Mountain is proceeding
amazingly and that the mineral
showings are rapidly reaching the
phenomenal as depth is attained, is
now generally admitted on all sides
by those mining men who have recently visited the property and viewed the work, says the Inland Colonist. Mining men of most conservative ideas' are not at all backward
In acknowledging that this property
is not only nearing what can be
classed as the proven state, but bears
evidence at the present stage of becoming an exceptionally large producer of high running ores.
On this property, one of the principal developments took place the
past week, which was the widening
of the lower lead to approximately
14 feet in width, showing tliree high
grade shoots of ore and about nine
feet of good concentrating ore. The
ore from these shoots runs as follows: Gold, 2 oz.; silver, 104 oz.;
copper, 14.8 per cent. Assays from
a second shoot runs: Gold, 12 oz.;
silver, 8S.6 oz.; lead, 28.6 per cent;
copper, 4.4 per cent. The third
shoot runs: Gold, .04 oz.; silver,
52.6 oz.; lead, 12.2 per cent. Combined width of the three shoots Is
2%  feet.
The concentrating part of this big
lead consists of yellow copper in
quartz and an average sample taken
across the nine feet when assayed
runs as follows, Gold, .08 oz.; silver,
94.4 oz.; copper, 11.4 per cent. Total
values for the nine feet, exclusive of
the three high grade shoots is $82.88.
Replacement has taken place in
the granite-diorite country rock adjoining this vein. A sample of this
replaced country rock ran: Gold, 14
oz.; silver, 46.2 oz.; copper, 5.4 per
cent.
This lower lead is the great surprise to the owners, as the surface
last fall only showed 1 % feet of ore
with 2 feet of quartz. Today, with
the steady development which has
been under way, it is the largest
and strongest of the three veins being) developed. A tunnel is now being driven in on tlie vein following
the hanging wall. This tunnel from
which the samples assayed were
taken has up to date obtained a
depth  of 33  feet.
It is understood that Messrs. Trimble & Pemberton intend letting con-
trcts for winter work to tap both

will give Rocher de Boule such an
immense ore tonnage as to qualify
it to be numbered among the truly
big mines and permanently fix Hazelton as one of the Coast's great
mining  districts.

Lucky Jim slock. Vancouver Is also
a heavy holder of Siocan securities,
especially of Rambler-Cariboo; The
Interest taken by the eastern portion
of the Dominion of Canada is stad-

lilies in Ontario have been steady
buyers of Siocan stocks for several
months. During Premier McBride's
recent visit to England he aroused
much interest In the mines of British
Columbia,, and especially of the territory around the Siocan. This steadily broadening market is furnishing
ample capital for the exploitation
and development of many new properties.

Lead King, on Nine .Mile Mountain,
lias changed hands, says the Omineca
Herald. This is the first big turn
over In the mining properties here
this year, but it is a most Important
one. The new owner Is P. J. Jennings of Portland, Ore. He came to
Hazelton on July 20 for the purpose
of looking over this camp, of which
he had heard something, but knew
little. He has seen a number of the
prospects and has purchased Lead
King. The deal was closed on August 10, whereby Mr. Jennings takes
up 900,000 shares of the total 1,000,-
000. The remaining 100,000 shares
were scattered among the public investors last year at 15 cents per
share. These shares the new owner
proposes to pick up a little later and
thereby own the whole mine. Lead
King was formerly owned by a syndicate of local capitalists who took
It over from the locators. They did
a certain amount of prospecting and
surface work and disposed of some
stock, but last winter operations
were suspended. The future of the
mine will be one of active develop-

Slavery in Soudan
Last month news reached Roselres
that a small party Of slaves had been
observed at Jebel Gerri, and the
bashjawlsh of the Repression of
Slavery police with ten men Immediately set off in pursuit. After
searching for three days In the
neighborhood, they came across the
tracks of the party between Jebel
and Roselres. They followed the
tracks, which were but a few hours
old, and, travelling quickly, overtook the fugitives two miles east of
Mangangani village. Two Arabs,
who were in charge of the party,
on see the police, immediately opened fire. The police returned their
fire, whereupon the Arabs dropped
their rifles and fled. The jungle
Is extremely thick in the region of
Roselres, and this rendered pursuit
difficult, but the police succeeded in
capturing one of the Arabs, who gave
his name as Yussey Wad Mohammed
of the Helaween tribe, and stated
that he had come from Abyssinia.
The slaves brought in numbered
seven, consisting of five boys and
two girls.

f    A SOLDIER OF FORTUNE    f
* *
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *.;, .*. * * * *.;.,;,.;, * v
In February, a certain well known
society man of Vancouver quietly
packed up his things and, dispensing
with the usual formality of adieu,
slipped across the line and down to
Mexican territory, where he offered
his services to General Madero, leader of the rebel army. The man's
name is Caryl Rhy Pryce, Welshman]
and soldier of fortune. He was tall,
muscular, and 33 years of age. Moreover, he had seen service in the British army during the South African
war. Madero looked him up and
down and deckled that he would do
—gave him his billet, and, it is possible, followed his subsequent career
with no uninterested eye.
Everyone who knows anything
about the guerilla warfare knows
what happened soon afterwards. How
the rebel army split Into two factions, and the young Britisii soldier
became commander of the faction
opposed to Madero and how he took
the town of Tiajuana, where Lar-
roque, the lieutenant governor of
Lower California, was killed in defence of the same.
When the war came to an end
Commander Pryce slipped away to
San Francisco. The' romance of the
adventure, coupled with the natural
charm of the man, made him a great
favorite in the Golden Gate and during his stay there he was made the
guest of the San Francisco Press
Press Club.
Meanwhile, events were marching
rapidly forward, and one day as the
Welshman sat iu the dub the far-
reaching arm of the Mexican government swooped down, and he found
himself under arrest. He was placed
in irons and taken to Los Angeles,
where he was Imprisoned In the
county jail. The charges given were
murder and arson, and breach of the
neutrality laws between the United
States and Mexico, although the
charge of arson was afterwards withdrawn. Nor is the claim made by
the Mexican government that he was
collecting arms and ammunition for
the rebels, as far back as January,
likely to hold, for it can be proven
that he was residing in Vancouver.
Meanwhile, the sister of the imprisoned man, Mrs. T. Kenyon Hodge,
who resides in Vancouver, had
known nothing of her brothers'
whereaoouts until she received an
illustrated post card of him in his
uniform, which some friend had accidentally some across and sent to
her. Needless to say, she followed
his career in the Mexican army as
closely as possible, and as soon as
she heard of his imprisonment she
lost no time in hastening down to
Los Angeles to his side. The machinery of the law was set In motion and no pains were spared to
bring about the liberation of the imprisoned British subject. A brother,
who resides in England, laid the matter before the attention of the foreign
office, which, although apparently
unable to do anything at once, asked
to be kept informed how things went.
A similar answer was received a few
days ago from Ambasador Bryce.
At present, it must be admitted,
things look rather black, for the Mexican government has made out a hard
case against the ex-commander.
Moreover, it demands that he be
handed over to them so that the trial
may take place on Mexican territory.
This, his friends are fighting with
might and main, for they know that
extradition will mean death, for once
on Meican soil there is little doubt
but that Caryl Pryce, soldier of fortune, will meet his death.
Mrs. Howge and her husband are
at present visiting in Victoria, where
they expect to remain two or three
weeks longer.
 o	
PEACE IN SIGHT
as to the best method for the promotion of peace. It adds that the work
has only been begun, but that It will
be pushed vigorously 'and systematically.
"Study of the causes and consequences of war," the declaration continues, "constitutes only a part of
the work. Peace will be studied in
the same spirit and with the same
method. Efforts will be made to
determine and measure with the
same scientific precision the action
of the forces working toward unity
of mankind, which daily is becoming
more and more intense."
The problems to he studied are
distributed in three sections: first,
the causes and effects of war; second, armaments, and, third, Influences tending lo the unification of
the peoples In their economic life.
In the firat llvlslou tlie studies
will comprise research liito conflicts
of economic interests, the Influence
of obligatory military service laws,
prizes, war loans issued by neutral
countries, the effects and consequences of wars on the civilized
world as a whole, and also on the
life of each nation in the destruction
of life and wealth.
In this section also will come
studies of conquests, colonizations
and derangements to international
commerce through war. The section
of armaments will study the history
of armaments of modern times, the
needs for armament and the possibilities of their being reduced; military budget's resulting from loans
for armaments In preparation for war
and the general effects of armaments
on the economic and social life of
peoples.
POLES USED IN CANADA
The Department of the Interior Recommends Timber Treating
Plants
The forestry branch of the department of the interior has compiled
statistics dealing with the poles purchased in Canada during 1910. The
total number of poles purchased was
7S2.S41, or an increase of 118 per
cent over 1900. The tltal value of
the poles at point of purchase was
$1,043,S74, and the average price
of poles was $1.33 or less by 6 cents
than the price of poles in 1909.
Steam railroads, tlephone and telegraph companies used 95 per cent
of these poles, the remaining 5 per
cent being used by electric roads,
power and light companies; 97 per
cent of the total consumption were
cedar poles, which for their cost
give better service than any other
wood. At present none of these
are preserved or treated by any method, in which respect we are far behind the United States. The United
States, using in 1909, 3,738,740
poles at an average cost of $1.98,
or at 50 cents more per pole than in
Canada, found that it paid them to
use preservative nithods. During the
last three years the treatment of
poles has advanced rapidly, so that
in 1909 15 per cent of the total number were treated by the creosote or
other methods. This is an increase
of 67 per cent, over the number
treated In 1908. At present the United States has 78 timber treating
plants, while Canada has none. It
| is to be hoped that this great inequality will soon be done away with,
and that pole users in Canada may
take up this cheap and rational method of securing greater service from
the poles used and thus lessening
the drain on the forest.
Conference of Advocates of Abolition
of   War Are   Very   Much
Encouraged
The peace advocates at their conference at Berne agreed upon the
essentials to be included In a declaration to tlie world, in which their
hopes and their programme will be
set forth. The members of the conference believe that important consequences will follow this meeting
of economists, and that for the first
time the problem of war will he studied scientifically by the deepest
thinkers of all nations.
Effort, time nor abundant funds
will be spared to carry on the research work, the result of which,
It is expected, will illuminate the
whole subject and have authoritative
value. The final act of the conference was to send a telegram to Andrew Carnegie, at Sklbo Castle,
whose peace foundation made the
peace gathering possible.
Tho declaration asks that all nations concentrate their attention
upon the value of serious and scientific study of the causes of war and
A  smart  Scottish   boy  was  sura-
| moned to give evidence against his
father, who was accused of making
disturbances on the street.    Said the

THE OUTLOOK
The passing of the bylaws on Saturday by the citizens of Prince Ruperl was more than an ordinary
event in the history of tlie city, it
unquestionably mean) much more
than was Indicated by a mere superficial examination into it. Both bylaws were of special importance at
this time nnd the results will be far'
reaching.
The ratification  of the agreement i
with  the G." T.  P.  means the begin-1
ning  of  what   the  railway  company!
has in store for the city in a com-!
mercial way.    Hitherto the work that |
the    company    has   done   has   been
largely that connected with getting a
line of railway in and has been similar   to   the   work   along   the   entire
route.
Now, however, the company enters <
upon its broad policy of development
within the city, which will end only
when equipment is provided for the
terminals of a great transcontinental
line and a trans-Pacific steamship
service. The station, tlie repair
shop, the great floating dock, and
hotel to cost probably over a million
dollars, and many other auxiliary undertakings are all to be carried to
completion within a limited time.
In another column will be found
a general outline of some of the work
planned and no citizen can read that
without feeling that the city is about
to enter upon a new era of prosperity.
The water bylaw, which provides
for the expenditure of over half a
million dollars, was also important.
It means that within a very short
time there will he a force of men at
work on this scheme, which must
mean so much to the city. The work
to be done by the city and that by
the railway company will ensure a
pay roll in Prince Rupert, the effects
of which Will be felt by every merchant and every other citizen in it.
Already the effects are being felt
in an increased demand for real
estate. There is every indication
now that this fall and winter will
be marked by business activity in
Prince Rupert such as has never been
experienced   here   before.
bined water and electric power plant
the prairie city has to spend three-
quarters of a million upon a power
proposition alone, being anything
but as advantageously situated as
this place is. A despatch, referring
to Prince Albert's course, says:
"The ratepayers of Prince Albert
today endoser by lavs to raise seven
hundred and seventy-five thousand
dollars to develop thirty-five hundred
horse power at La Colle Falls, on
the Saskatchewan River. The vote
vote was overwhelmingly in favor of
the measure, 411 voting in favor and
only four against.
"Construction work on the power
scheme will be started at an early
dale, just as soon, in fact, as a final
report on plans prepared by C. H.
.Mite-hell has been received from Cecil
II. Smith Of the engineering firm
handling the Point du Bois scheme at
Winnipeg.
"Tlie ratepayers also voted over
forty thousand dollars to exlend the
steam plant supplying current for the
city and domestic lighting."
CHEAP   LIVING
Cheap living and low wages practically always go hand In hand.
Workmen should not allow party
heelers to make them believe that
there will be anything for them In
reciprocity because sheep and cattle
and wheat and oats and hay and
other natural products will come in
duty free under it. Workmen don't
eat sheep nor cattle nor oats but
they eat mutton and beef and oatmeal and none of these will come
In free under reciprocity. If Pat
Burns can bring in sheep and cattle
cheaper than he can buy them from
our own farmers and stockmen he
is the one who will get the benefit
and the steaks and chops will remain ahout the same prices as before, says the Hedley Gazette.
cese. It is not thought that there
will he any difficulty in raising the
funds required, as a number of
wealthy Anglicans in the city are
anxious and willing to contribute towards the undertaking.
CEMENT PLANT
CHILL1WACK—It is stated on
good authority that work on one of
the largest cement manufacturing
plants on the Pacific Coast will soon
be started at Elk Creek, at the east
end of the Chilliwack Valley, and
that within a year a branch of the
Britisii Columbia Electric Railway
will be built to that point from Chilliwack. A syndicate or capitalists,
most of whom reside In Vancouver,
have purchased, It Is said, 290 acres
Of land al East Chilliwack, near the
foot of Elk Creek Falls, and have
secured options on other lands in
that vicinity. The land was formerly the property of Messrs. Brett and
Eugene Patterson. This land is a
portion of an immense lava bed composed chiefly of limestone and shale
rock which can be converted into excellent cent. The proposed site of
the factory is within a mile and a
half of the Canadian Northern and
Great Northern railways, and within
two miles of the Fraser River, which-
with the proposed extension of the
British Columbia Electric Railway assures adequate transportation. The
site is surrounded by some of the
finest prairie peat sol] in the Chilliwack Valley. Should the new cement works, as is expected, employ
a force of 500 men, a new town of
about 2,000 inhabitants may be
looked for.

LAWSON BOOSTS
HEARTY WELCOME
Tbe welcome which was accorded
Mr. Clements, the Conservative candidate in Comox-Atlin, upon his arrival here is one which indicates that
Ills election in tlie riding is assured.
In tlie choice of Mr. Clements the
Conservatives made no mistake. He
has had experience in public life and
possesses a style which makes him
friends wherever he goes.
His speech last night was logical
and showed that he had made a careful study of the whole question at
issue.
In the soutli he has been accorded
a very heary support and it is safe
to say that the northern part of the
constituency will nol be behind the
south in supporting him on election
day.
Mr. Clements will spend the greater part of the remainder of the campaign in the north, speaking here tomorrow night and then proceeding to
Stewart   and   later  to  Hazelton.

STUMPING OUTFIT
NELSON—Duty has been paid in
Nelson on the largest and most modern stump puller and land clearing
machine ever imported into Canada.
Is was made by the Clyde Iron Works
of Duluth, and purchased by Beaton
& Vezina, owners of 5,000 acres of
land in the Whatshan Valley, Lower
Arrow Lake. The land is being
cleared and planted and sold in
snial ltracts ready for the settlers.
"We believe we have the latest thing
in land clearing machinery," said Mr.
Beaton. "It was built to order for
us and is the first of three machines
of the kind that we will put to work
on our land. The other two will
be delivered early in the spring.
They are very heavy, weighing
something over eighteen tons each,
and have separate drums for spotting, pulling and piling. We expect
each machine to clear three or four
acres per day.. They pull out the
trees as they stand, making chopping
necessary only in the case of especially high trees that might injure
the cables as they fell. They work
very fast  and require small crews."
ANOTHER  EXAMPLE

move to obtain power for the <-it>-.
Prince Albert, the province of Saskatchewan, only a few days ago took
a somewhat similar step but instead
of spending half a million em a com-
ANGLICAN   CATHEDRAL
VICTORIA—After many years of
waiting, a movement is at last on
foot to provide Victoria with a new
cathedral worthy of the Anglican
Church creed and the capital city of
British Columbia. Whether or no a
new cathedral should he built has
been discussed for a long time, but
it looks now as If matters had really
come to a head. Before leaving for
the east Rev. Dean Doull sent out a
letter to all rectors and missionaries
in the diocese of Columbia, asking
them to appoint delegates from their
parishes to confer with the Christ
Church cathedral committee of laymen, which had a scheme in hand
to be discussed. This Is to be done
in order that the plans may he laid
before the Columbia Diocesan Synod
In a concrete form when that body
meets In Victoria, on October 3 and
4. As soon as a satisfactory conclusion is arrived at collectors will he

Part  of  Canada
I'pun his return to Boston a few-
days ago from the west, where he
has spent considerable time this Bummer, Thomas W. Lawson, of frenzied
finance fame, lauded Canada and the
west to the skies, proclaiming from
the hilltops, figuratively speaking,
of the glories that Canada and the
west holds for young and old alike.
He says that the west has it on every
corner of the globe from the Garden
of Eden to Egypt, Massachusetts.
Note a characteristic Lawson exclamation when he landed in the
Bean City: "Young man! if you don't
go to a ticket office and buy yourself a ticket for the west within the
next week you ought to .be dragged
before a judge and given 90 days at
hard labor. Opportunities lie unheeded along the railroad tracks, on
the mountain sides, in the gutters,
crying to be snached. Opportunities
are as plentiful as the leaves upon
the trees, as the fish within the
bounding brooks, as the grass upon
the earth.
"Western Canada offers the greatest opportunities. Out there they
have actually put into practise the

"Those people hustle so assiduously out there in Western Canada that
they never buy less than three pair

dust had cleared away, the three

"To tell the truth, my head is so

say again that any young man who

buy a ticket which will carry him

he is committing a crime against

PRINCE RI'PERT JOURNAL
JOE MARTIN'S VIEWS
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier in the past
ten or twelve years has given Canada one of the worst administrations
in the whole world," was Joseph Martin's keynote sentence given in an
interview in Winnipeg on his way
west to oppose the government.
Starting from his base he launched
into a vigorous attack on the present
government.
"I have been condemning conditions that politics have fallen into
under tills administration for some
time, and while I find that some of
my friends who have joined with
me in this condemnation are supporting Sir Wilfrid Laurier on account
of reciprocity, I find myself quite
unable to join them.
"I know that there is more political corruption in Canada today than
there has ever been, and a verdict
for favorable government would
mean condemnation of the existing
state of affairs.
"Of  course  it  is  quite  true  that
open than in any other part. We
have a political boss and a machine
worse even than Tammany Hall of
New York. All government contracts, concessions and privileges, including even the appointment of
judges, are put up for public mo-
petition and go to the highest bidder.
This state of affairs is well known
to Sir Wilfrid and aproved by him.
"In return for this control of patronage, the local boss in Vancouver
is supposed to furnish all the money
that may be required for election purposes. It is the most corrupt arrangement 1 have ever heard of and
has been publicly approved by William Templeman, one of the members
of the government. When Sir Wilfrid Laurier was in Vancouver last
autumn the political boss carried him
around the city in his automobile,
sitting side by side with him, thus
indicating to the people how completely he controlled the patronage.
"The position of affairs from this
Joseph  Martin,  Prominent   Liberal Opposing  Laurier Government
under every government, no matter
how pure, there would be no crookedness. All that can be asked of the
government is that they themselves
shall be clean, and that they shall
deal with a firm hand with any instances of corruption in their respective departments.
"In this respect the present government has entirely failed. Charge
after charge of a most serious nature
has been made against the administration.
"In addition, I am hopelessly
against Sir Wilfrid aiid his colleagues
because they have repudiated every
principle which was in the platform
of the Liberal party when in opposition, and 1 think that when a political party abandons all its pledges
it is the duty of every real supporter
of those pledges to vote for the other
side.
"The administration is very bad
all over Canada, and as far as I can
make out, in every department of
the government, hut in Britisii Columbia corruption is probably more
standpoint is well known in Eng'
land, and I am ashamed to say that
Canada, from the standpoint of po
litical morality, is repulsive to the
people of the Old Country.
"This disgrace, in my opinion,
should be wiped out, and the only
way to do it is to turn the government out and bring in R. L. Borden's
Conservative principles. I am as
much opposed to the Conservative
party as I ever was. I do believe,
however, that Mr. Borden is an honest man and if returned to power
would clean up the Augean stable of
political corruption. I believe it is
the duty of every patriotic Liberal
to take this course. 1 believe, also,
that the turning out of the present
administration would be the best
thing that could happed the Liberal
party. In* opposition it would be
able to shake off a gang wliich at
present has control and emerge
standing, as I believe, for the very
| best principles of administration and
policy which it was when It came Into
power on June 23, 1896."

AGAINST   THE   COAST
When Ihe tenders were Invited for
tlie construction of the warships for
Canada's navy the firms contemplating bids were given a wage scale
based upon rates of wages paid In
Eastern Canada with the result that
the Pacific Coast was shut out from
any possible competition. The B. C.
Marine Railway Company, associated
with a prominent Britisii shipbuilding firm, had prepared to tender, but
the Ottawa government's action precluded them from doing so, and the
interests of the Pacific Coast have
been sacrificed, says the Victoria
Colonist. When the naval policy was
decided upon it was announced that
it was proposed to construct the vessels at a cost of 33 1-3 per cent more
than it would cost to construct the
vessels in Canada, and it was announced that this would aid the shipbuilding industry, but the aid is all
to be given to Eastern Canada, where
the greater voting strenth Is needed
the greatest voting strength Is located. The Pacific Coast is not to be
given an opportunity to compete as
was expected for the construction of
the vessels for the Pacific squadron.
The  construction   of  warships  for
tlie Pacific squadron of the Canadian
navy at Esquimalt would result In
the bringing to this city of at least
1,000 mechanics, and at the usual
ratio of three or four persons dependent on each worker, would add from
12,lion to 16,000 to the population
of Victoria. The establishment of
Ihe necessary shipyards would give
a great impetus lo the development
of the iron resources of Vancouver
Island and he would he the means
of bringing to Victoria's great shipbuilding and  repair trade.
The tenders submitted have been
placed in the hands of the technical
officers of the Canadian admiralty,
who will probably make their report
after September 21 next, an'd it is
an open secret that Messrs. Cam-
mell Laird & Co. of Sheffield, who
intend to locate their works at St.
John, N. B., are the lowest tenderers for all the vessels to he built.
R. B. Bevis, managing director of
the Birkenhead yards of Canunell
Laird & Co., when the Canadian industrial commissioners visited -the
yards at Sheffield on August 2, said
he had strong hopes that the work of
building the Canadian vessels would
he placed with a firm to be established in Canada, which would be assisted, organized and developed by Cani-
mell Laird & Co.    He said:
"In the negotiations which were
taking place they had pitched upon
St. John, N. B., as the best site for
the shipyards of Canada. It was a
big venture, and one which one
looked forward to with, perhaps, a
little avidity, but he hoped that it
would materialize, and that Sheffield
would benefit by the creation of shipbuilding and engineering works in
Canada."
St. John, N. B., is the seat for
wliich Hon. Mr. Pugsley, minister of
public works, sat, and which he is
contesting, and while nothing it heing done in Victoria to assist or develop the shipbuilding industry, tlie
bids have been so Invited that the
Pacific Coast Is precluded from competing, and nothing has been done
assist in improving Victoria as a seaport In view of the great trade anticipated within a few years, as often
pointed out by the Colonist during
the past few years.
The   following   despatch   tells   of
I what is held out to St. John, X. B.
It reads: "The tenders for the construction of a dry dock and ship-
! repair plant, a very extensive con-
j crete breakwater, and two wharves
! from which the first steamships to
carry Grand Trunk Pacific freight
from the port of Sa. John will dock,
closed on August 10. Three great
British contracting firms submitted
tenders, and each deposited half a
million dollars as a forfeit. It is
expected the contract will be awarded at an early date. These great
works Involve an expenditure of several million dollars. The works will
he located in St. John harbor east."

I   Maori Progress    I
J I
+*•****••***•••**••••■*•***•*
Something over seventy-five years
ago, a wild, cannibal Maori chief,
named Poniare, sailed out of Wellington harbor with as choice and bloodthirsty a hand of naked savages as
you could ever imagine. They headed for the Chatham Islands, about
500 miles away, where lived prosperous and equally cannibal enemies,
the Maoris.
Tlie' Maori conquistador carried
shotguns; tlie islanders had nothing
but their bows and arrows and a
rather inl'eriod kind of spears, History is not very accurate about the
details of ihis obscure, bul ferocious
war. Hut the Maorloris we're so badly decimated that there are less than
a score of them on their islands today. The invaders literally ate them
out of existence. The veteran Po-
nare, mat garbed and savage like
the rest, presided at the cannibal
o gies.
That was no uncommon instance
in Waori warfare a short three-quar-
te's of a century ago. Today the
Maoris vote and hold land in New
Zealand side hy side with white men.
In some ways, Maori lawyers, Maori
doctors, and Maori ministers oi religion have more of the graces of
civilization than their white neighbors. In the sense that it Is known
in America, and that Englishmen are
coming to know it in South Africa,
there is no race problem in New
Zealand  at all.
Only the other day King George
Included a Maori in his honors list.
The Maoris are noteworthy among
eel! the primitive nations of the world
for having tagen the graces of the
white man's civilization and left the
vices alone.
Take Pomare's grandson, for instance. A man starts with a bit of
a handicap on his future achievement
when his grandfather was a wild,
man-eating savage. But is Pomare's
grandson a mat-garbed cannibal?
No; he Is Dr. Wi Maui Pomare, a
university graduate, and a cultured
and refined gentleman. More than
that, he has preserved his grandfather's traits of leadership, for he
has been appointed to the post of
government chief medical officer
among his people. •■"■««..
Have Learned From Whites
That is what strikes a stranger
among the Maoris of New Zealand
first and most forcibly—how much
they have learned from the whites
and how much they have refused to
learn.
' When the Maoris takes up anything, they generally take it up vigorously, and very much in their own
fashion. x
When they fought the white man,
they fought him under his own methods, with gunpowder and rifle pits
and skirmish lines—and with a word
of honor that the white man came
to respect. They fought him successfully, too, for a long series of
years, ending about the time of the
American Civil War, with New Zealand far from "conquered." The
white men took up land the Maoris
could not use—for their fifty thousand population still own over 7,000,-
000 acres. And the Maori fought
for his rights throughout so firce-
ly and honorably that to come together on even terms after the wars
was the most natural thing possible.
That is the chief reason why there
is so little race prejudice. And it
is also because men life Dr. W. Maui
Poniare are so proud of the race
of their cannibal grandfathers that
they set a strict ban on Intermarriage with the white man.
Tokens of rare inequality like the
"Jim Crow" car, the "grandfather"
clause, or the social and political
limitations suffered hy the Hindu
are unknown in New Zealand. All
through the Maori country, white
and dusky children intend thp same
schools, with no distinction of race
or color. Prom Te Aute College,
al Hawke'fl Bay, "and St, Stephen's
School many brainy young Maoris
graduate each year and no forth ie<
mill to the natives' pride of race
and white man's store of knowledge.
The 128 scholarships offered by the
New Zealand government arc barely
enough to satisfy the increasing demand.
In Their Native Land
It Is in their native village, however, that one tomes to understand
best the odd blend of civilizing and
traditional elements that makes the
.Maoris unique among races of their
color. Up to the northeast here, you
can see the business ingenuity of a
very up-to-date present In the way
of the huge thousand-acre sheep
farms are run by their native owners. The sheep shearing is usually
done by machinery of Ihe latest pattern, nnd the Ngati-Perou tribe, one
of the most famous fighting tribes
in the country, have put almost every
acre   of   their   land   under   grazing

and general sheep farming in the
most advanced style. A home-made
native telephone system connects the
villages all around the cape and links
up with the government system in
the south.
But Ihe Maoris have acquired
more than the crust of civilization In
the white man's scientific conveniences. They have adjusted their
tribal customs to his laws. All traces
of cannibalism were put away 50
years ago; tattooing, until recently
compulsory on each Maori brave, is
also passing out of fashion. The fortitude which was measured by the
depth and numner of India-ink filled
slashes a man could stand on his
face and chest still exists, but is
measured sow by the more complex
standards of the European.
But outside of the unpopularity
of war since peace settled down on
the country, the visible side of Maori
life is little changed. In the villages around Rotorua the great
Arewa tribe still carries on the same
native handicrafts as they have for
centuries, and practice the same picturesque old rights they brought
over from mythical Hawaiiki 700
years ago. No European can afford
to look down on their system of life
which has lasted so long, for in
many ways, it was, and is today, the
perfect communal state. Land Is
owned in common, but each man
must be his own carpenter, shipbuilder, fisherman, farmer, fire-
maker, rigger and sallmaker. There
Is no room for drones In the Maori
village. Left naked and destitute
on an uninhabited island, his training would make him king of men

In build the Ma~il is notable
among the sons of man. Erect nnd
proud, wiih the natural dignity of
mi athlete that is more Celtic than
Scandinavian, bis temperament has
more than one strain in It that allies

Tho man who is their most distinguished leader today, though
brought up among them, and considering himself a true Maori in
thought, is himself born of Irish
parents. He Is the Hon. James Carroll, minister of his majesty's government for New Jealand for native
affairs. Under his leadership the
.Maoris have turned the-tide of their
decreasing population, and have
evolved a modern race pride that has
set their level for future achievement
high. With this Irishman at their
head, and with the proofs before
them of what grandsons of cannibals can accomplish in competition
with the white man, there is still a
future for the Maoris among the civilized peoples of the world.

Hon. Clifford Sifton, for many
years minister of the interior in the
Laurier cabinet, in opening hi campaign at Ingersoli, Ont., said:
"If it is true that it is essential
in the interests of this Dominion of
Canada that we should conserve our
resources and work carefully, painfully and perhaps slowly, the best
method of making them available in
order that we may have a strong,
virile and well nourished population,
it must be clear that this is no time
to take down the bars and turn these
resources over to the United States.
"If we enter upon trade relations
of an extensive character with the
United States, and if favorable anticipations which can be entertained
turned out to be well founded, and
our friends south of the line use us
well and give us nearly everything
we ask, what is the Inevitable conclusion? Must not our trade and
business and very life become mixed
with theirs, so that we shall become
increasingly dependent upon them,
with the ultimate end of political
union? And If these favorable anticipations are not realized, and they
will not treat us well, and want to
grab and quibble, on the Interpretation of any reciprocity treaty, what
will that mean? It will bean that,
ten or fifteen years from now, we
shall have to begin all over again;
just where we are now, and start
once again to put ourselves right.
"I do not bold with lliose who say
that those wlio are opposed to a
trade treaty between between Cnn-
ada and the United States are opposed to good relations between f'ein-
enlii and the United States Is that
each should do Ils own business In-
dependtly, und have no entanglements, nothing in the world to quarrel about."

EMPRESS VAN  HORNE
The Empress Van Home is to be
the name of one of the two new Empress liners being constructed for
the trans-Pacific service of the C.P.R.
at the yards of the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company
at Govan, Scotland, according to a
statement made at Montreal by Mr.
Bosworth, vice president of the
C.P.R. The announcement made by
Mr. Bosworth stated the company
would probably honor its former
president, Sir William Van Home,
by naming one of the new liners the
Empress Van Home. The new steamer will have a capacity for 1,500
passengers and will cost $2,500,000.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
AGAINST RECIPROCITY
The reasons given by eighteen of Toronto's leading Liberals
Following is the statement Issued
last February by eighteen of the
leading Liberals of Toronto, in
which they declared their opposition
to reciprocity:
"We oppose ratification of the pro-
United States of America—
"1. Because in the year 1897 the
Parliament of Canada repealed the
legislation then existing relating to
reciprocity and since such repeal neither the people of Canada nor Parliament have entrusted the government with any duty or authority to
negotiate with respect to any agreement on the subject,
"2. Because the present unexampled prosperity of Canada is the result of a policy which has been pursued in the development of her trade
and of her natural resources. Because this has involved the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars upon railways, canals, steamships and other means of transportation between east and west and
west and east, and the obligation to
incur further development along the
same lines would he seriously
checked by the proposed reciprocity
agreement, and the benefits of the
expenditures refrrd to would b to
a great extent lost.
"2. Because It is essential to the
continued national unity and development of Canada that no trade relations with any country should he
agreed to hy Canada on any basis
which would check the growth and
development of trade between the
various parts of Canada and the various parts of the Empire; and be-'
cause the proposed reciprocity agreement between Canada and the United States of America would seriously check the growth and development of this trade.
"4. Because any present benefit to
any section of Canada or to any
interests or individuals therein which
might accrue from the proposed
agreement would he more than offset by the loss and injury which
would accrue to other sections and
interests and individuals, and because the result to Canada as a whole
would be greatly injurious.
"5. Because as a result of the proposed agreement, the freedom of action passessed by Canada with reference to her tariffs and channels
of trade would be greatly curtailed,
and she would be hampered In developing her own resources in her
own way by her own people.
"6. Because, after some years of
reciprocity under the proposed agreement, the channleds of Canada's
trade would have become so changed
that a termination of the agreement
and a return by the United States
to a protective tariff as agalust Canada would cause a disturbance of
trade to an unparalleled extent, and
because the risk of this should not
be voluntarily undertaken by Canada.
"7. Because, to avoid such disruption, Canada would he forced to extend the scope of the agreement so
as toclude manufactures and other
things.
"8. Because the agreement as proposed would weaken the ties which
bind Canada to the Empire and because the unrestricted reciprocity
which would naturally follow would
still further weaken those ties and
make it more difficult to avert political union with the United States.
"9. Because the disruption In the
channles of Canada's trade which
was caused by the termination of the
recoprlelty treaty of 1854 and the
subsequent establishment of protective tariff by the United States,
gave rise to a decided leaning In
many minds towards annexation
with the United States, and this at
a time when Canada was mainly
peopled hy native-born Canadians and
other Britisii subjects, to whom the
prospect of annexation was most unwelcome and because Cauada In a
comparatively few years will have
millions of newcomers, a large percentage of whom will come from
foreign countries, and because if
Canada should then have to choose
between disruption of her channels
of trade with the United States or
political union with them, the preservation of Canadian autonomy and
Canadian nationality would be
enormously more difficult.
"10. Believing as we do that Canadian nationality is now threatened
with a more serious blow than it
has hitherto met with, and that all
Canadians who place the interests
of Canada before those of *ny party
or section or individuals therein,
should at this crisis state their views
openly and fearless'y, we, who have
hitherto supported the Liberal party
in Canada, subscribe to this statement."
This was signed by:
Sir Edmund Walker, president of
the Canadian Bank of Commerce.
Sir William Mortimer Clark, K. C,
former lieutenant governor of Ontario.

should appeal to many Canadian municipalities. There are evidences
that the idea is being adopted. The
city of Guelph, the leader in municipal ownershow in Canada, has this
year bought 168 acres of land constituting the municipal watershed,
and has adopted a plan for planting
It to profitable trees. The county
of York, in Ontario, is considering
a plan of purchasing and planting
upon acres of waste sandy land. The
Ontario government has bought several thousand acres of wornout farms
in different districts in Southern Ontario with the Intention of converting them Into profitable forests.
THE TRAINING SHIP
I Ontario's Chances i
**************************
Though municipal forestry cannot
be as profitable in Canada as it is
in Germany and other European
countries, it will, while furnishing
labor, converting waste land into
productive woods and improving watersheds, pay good interest on the
money invested. Near many Canadian villages, towns and cities there
are areas of waste sandy or rocky
land, which, after having been
farmed, have been abandoned as worn
out, or which have been cleared of
timber but never used for agriculture. Such areas are usually wastes
of ugliness which detract from the
value of the neighboring property.
Their unproductivity increases the
proportionate burden of taxes on the
community and renders such public
works as roads and bridges unduly
expensive or proportionately poor in
quality. If the waste land is sand
it is in many localities blown about
by the wind so as to destroy or decrease the value of adjoining farms.
There are instances of this along the
shores of Lakes Ontario, Erie and
Huron. In every way waste land is
not only a loss to, but a drag upon,
the progresslvness of a community.
Such land will always grow trees,
and if the proper species he chosen,
will produce valuable timber.
Waste land not far from centres
of population can be bought for five
dollars an acre or less. In some districts it can be bought for two dollars an acre. If this land happens
to be, as It frequently is, covered
with young trees of valuable species,
the cost of planting is considerably
reduced. In Canada waste land can
be planted to young trees, e.g., white
pine, for about eight dollars per
acre. The cost of the land, the cost
of planting, the cost of management,
protection and taxes, with compound
interest at three and one-half per
cent, brings the cost of the plantation
to about $160 per acre at the age
'of sixty years.
There are no sixty-year-old plantations of white pine in Canada, but
studies which have been made by
foresters In white pine forests on
similar land In Eastern America justify the prediction that an acre of
planted forest at that age will produce 80,000 feet of merchantable
timber. Timber will be worth more
in sixty years than it is now, and
as Ontario lumbermen are paying the
government ten dollars and over for
the privilege of cutting forest-grown
pine in rather inaccessible regions,
It is safe to say that plantations of
pine in settled districts will sixty
years from now be worth at least
ten dollars per thousand feet on the
stump. This would make the plantation worth $800 standing, without
the profit on the small trees, thinnings and cordwood. This crop at
5S00 represents a rental of $3.25 per
acre for every year of the life of the
plantation, In addition to three and
one-half per cent on all money Invested.
This well tried and businesslike
method of securing a financial return from waste land is one which
VANCOUVER—All tenders for the
purchase of H. M. S. Egeria, including that of the local branch of the
Navy League, have been rejected by
the British Admiralty and it is announced that the historic vessel will
be put up at public auction at Esquimalt, according to official advices
wliich have been received by E. P.
Kay, secretary of the Navy League
here. Over $5,000 had been subscribed by the public for the purpose of
obtaining the warship for conversion
to a training ship to be stationed in
burrard Inlet. Officers of the executive who sent in the tender for
the league expected they would be
successful and that within the year
the wooden vessel would manned by
an efficient instructor for the boys
of Vancouver. "Although our first
step has not been successful," said
Mr. Kay, in discussing the matter,
"we have still hopes of seeing the
Egeria here. We intend to bring all
our forces to bear and have every
prospect of ultimate success. Lieutenant Knox, the official lecturer for
the Navy League the world over,
leaves for Victoria this morning, and
proposes to take up the question
while there, and to set it before the
admiralty upon his return to England. The whole league Is interested in the purchase of the Egeria
for Vancouver, inasmuch as it will
put this city in posesslon of the largest training ship in the Navy League,
which already has six."

ERA OF PROSPERITY
OPENS UPON CITY
(Continued From Page One)
the second one, will be reached by
exceedingly easy grades from each of
the roadways leading to the waterfront, Sixth Street and Third Street.
The intention of the copniany Is
to lay out the intervening space between these two streets and between
the station and Second Avenue on a
park-like plan. This, it would appear, would be a matter for attention
a little later, the works of necessity
having the first claim upon the engineering and construction departments. It is expected that part of
that space will be devoted to the
Dominion government buildings, post
office and tlie court house. The remainder will be 8 park with walks
which will not be available for commercial purposes.
Hotel   Site
In   the  matter  of  the  hotel  site
Hays and  Mr.  Chamberlin said
had not been finally settled yet
.•onipaiiy desires to make no mis-
in  the question of location and
Jierefore taking every tiling into

iver, that the final location will

Mehan's home stands.
,ie company has had several sites
•lect from in addition to this one.
location  of  the  Premier  Hotel,
high point opposite the provin-
jovernmeut block, and Acropolis
have all been under considera-
As   to   the  latter site,   how-
,   the handing  over of  it as  a
site to the city precludes the
.ibility of locating  there.    That
tne  officials   of  the  company   have
the most optimistic faith in the quick
development of the city was shown
during    the    interview    which    the
Journal had with them touching on
this  very point.    It  was  suggested
that  the Acropolis might be rather
too far removed from  the business
centre   to    be  a  desirable  location,
when Mr. Chamberlin broke in with
the  announcement  that  it  must  be
borne in mind that the business section of the city must extend in a very
short   time  far   beyond   its   present
bounds.
On First Avenue
The plans for the hotel will of
course have to await until the final
decision as to location is fixed. If
thg site suggested on First Avenue
is selected the building will probably be put fairly close to First Avenue and the whole space included
in the area as far as McBride Street
will probably be utilized as grounds,
being laid out so as to make it one
of the most charming locations to
be found in the whole system. There
is an ample area available for this.
The heights above the tracks on the
water side will preclude all annoyance from that source. The view,
commanding the whole harbor and
across the to island dotted passage
leading to Metlakatla with the mountains in plain view from every direction, will make the location an ideal
one. It will be within the easiest
reach of the G. T. P. station, the
G. T. P. wharf and the Government
wharf.
Speaking of the time when work
would begin on the foundations, Mr.
Chamberlin said that it would begin
as soon as the location was finally
fixed and the plans prepared. They
might start this fall on the excavations. If they did not start this fall
they would certainly delay no longer
than the spring.
Realizing the immense demands
that are to be put upon the hotel in
the matter of accommodation, the
G. T. P. will equip the building to
meet the fullest requirements.
Dry Dock Construction
Willi respect to the dry dock the
Official said there would be no let-up
em this pari of the company's plans,
li was proposed to have the work
stan at once, Mr. Chamberlin expected that before they got back the
order-ln-councll necessary to provide
fur ibis work would he passed by I
the Dominion government so that
there, would be no delay occasioned. J
Tlie undertaking will be carried
through as planned and in connection with this there wi'l be an Immense amount of rock excavated
about Hays Creek and along the waterfront from Cameron Cove lo the
creek. A seawall at the deep water
line will be put in and the space in
the rear of it filled in to allow the
necessary plans to he carried out.
Mr. Chamberlin said the work would
be of immense importance to the city
and the full benefits were not, he
believed, fully realized as yet.
Along the Line
The G. T. P. officials went as far
a*s Hazelton on their trip up the
Skneena and were well pleased with
the way the work was going forward.
There were great difficulties to fare,
Mr.  Chamberlin said, but  the work
seemed to be going along all right.
The tunnel beyond the present track-
end will be completed, it is expected,
In Ocfoher, so that the construction
work can begin at once. The grading beyond it is in good shape and
during the winter the rails should
be laid to Hazelton.
At the Skeena bridge there Is likewise good progress heing made and
he looks for no further delay there.
The' caissons are being put in place
anil with low water this fall the work
necessary to ensure the foundations
will be carried out.
Early Completion
Asked if tlie company still expected to have the road completed in
l !il:i, Mr. Chamberlin said it depended upon the supply of labor, bul he
e'xpected that the rails would be laid
by that time even if there was some
further work to do a little later. The
company was most anxious to get the
work completed.
During the next summer, with the
work done in the direction of Tete
Jaune Cache, to which point the work
would he completed this winter, the
entire Tine from Tete Jaune Cache
to Fresh Lake would all be under
construction, In addition to this,
there should be twenty miles from
Aldermere under way.
Pleased With the City
Mr. Hays and Mr. Chamberlin
remarked upon the improved appearance of the city. They were both
well satisfied with the way In which
the place was being opened up, and
Mr. Hays expressed his satisfaction
with the conclusion of the taxation
dispute by the people giving such a
decided majority on the bylaw vote.
They both look forward to a very
decided movement here in the immediate future and apparently the company is going to do its best to assist
in this work.
NEW LAND IS SOUGHT
Nearly 00,000 Homesteads Taken Up
on  Prairies  in  Last
Two Years
Although immigration into Canada increased during the last fiscal
|year of the government 49 per cent,
liomesteam entries for the corresponding year increased but 6 per
jcent. Saskatchewan still leads in the
number .of entries, its total for the
year ending March 31 last, being
25,227, as compared with 21,575 in
the year preceding. In the corresponding year entries in Alberta
'showed a decrease.
The fashion for settlers, during tlie
past few years, has apparently been
to follow the railroad construction,
hence it has passed through Winnipeg and through Manitoba into the
active centres of Saskatchewan and
Alberta. The returns which cover
the fiscal year of 1910-11 and 1909-
lu show that there has been a slight
reaction ill favor of the old province of Manitoba as the number of
entries increased from 2,529 for the
year ending March 31,1910, to 3,082
for the year ending March 31, last.
The following table shows entries
made  in  each   of  the  prairie  provinces respectively for two years:

INVESTORS ARE GETTING
POSSESSION OF LOTS
(Continued From Page One)
the business section which promises
to increase as the season advances
until Prince Rupert assumes something like the importance it should
attain in a realty way.
An Active Year
C. D. Rand, who conducted the
auction of lots in Prince Rupert at
the big sale, was a visitor last week
to the city. He was accompanied by
Mrs. Rand and his son. No one takes
a deeper interest in the development
of this place than Mr. Rand, and no
one follows the trend of events as
thehy affect the city closer than he
does. His judgment is therefore
worth considering in forming an estimate of the city's prospects.
Perhaps no surer proof that he
expects an immediate movement
here excelling anything hitherto experienced, is found in the fact that
while P. I. Palmer, the local representative of the company, has decided to close the planing mil' for a
time, having what he considered a
sufficient stock ahead for several
months. Mr. Rand decided to continue operations for a few weeks
longer, feeling well satisfied that a
decided movement Is about to begin
here in a commercial way.
Speaking to the Journal, Mr. Rand
said he never was so pleased with his
investments in Prince Rupert as he
was at this time. The city looked
excellent, and inside of three months
he expected to see business very
active here. Capital was looking this
way and would assuredly come. He
felt that with the work done on the
streets, the settlement of the G.J T. P.
taxation question and the near approach to the time when the line
would be completed that the active
days for the city were within a few
months of attainment.

OIL  PROSPECTS
Borings   on   West   Coast   of  Graham
Island   Indicate
Success
Total       3,082 2,529
Saskatchewan
Month 1910-11 1909-10
The prospects from the oil borings
on the west coast of Graham Island
which are being carried out by Mr.
Parnall's company are exceedingly
bright according to latest reports.
They are down about 400 feet and
the indications with depth are improving very much according to the
latest reports.
The local company, the Graham Island Oilfields, controlled by residents
of Prince Rupert, is preparing for
active operations and the sale of the
limited block of stock is reported by
tne brokers, the Mack Realty Company, to be very active. Only a
small amount of stock will be sold
at the prices offered, the intention
[being to sell only enough stock to
meet the Immediate demands.
In the opinion of those who have
studided the prospects on Graham
Island, it is contended that the oil
which will be reached there will be
of the higher grades and will be refined and thus put on the market.

HACK RICHEST ATHLETE
Probably no athlete in the world
has the amount of wealth possessed
by George Hackenschmidt, the Russian lion. Hackenschmidt has
all kinds of ready cash besides
innumerable pieces of real estate in
England and he also owns valuable
mining property In Australia. He Is
a very quiet fellow and highly educated. He can speak a dozen languages, and at home travels in the
higher class of society.
That his massive frame hides a
woman's heart is exemplified by a
little story that is not press agent
stuff. After returning from his successful tour of America under the
management of Jack Curley, Hack
went back to England with a desire
to be near the seashore. He went
down to Brighton and picked out a
nice summer home. He got a friend
to close the deal with the owner
and prepared to take possession of
Ihe place.
When Hack arrived he found a
BWeet-faced woman weeping as
though her heart would break. She
said her husband had died and she
waa compelled to sell her home, but
could not get up the courage lo leave.
She explained that debt would take
away the total sum she received
from the sale of the house, and she,
with her children, were practically
penniless. Pulling the deed out of
his pocket, Hack thrust it into the
trembling hands of the good woman
and told her the house was again her
property, to live In the remained of
her days.
Another Incident showing the generous nature of this wonderful athlete is the story often told by Hack's
acquaintances as a joke upon him.
Hack has a young and ambitious
brother. He gave him $5,000 and
told him to go and get an education.
The young fellow, overjoyed at his
wealth, proceeded at once to get rid
of it, which he did at the famous
Monte Carlo. Some one broke the
news to Hack and  expected him 'to

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch  Ranges are built so that they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening Into the 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
a range.
