EXPERIMENTAL TREES
FOR SKEENA ORCHARDS
Provincial Horticulturist Will Visit the District Early
in Nay and Make Distribution Giving Instructions as to Planting and Care
of Plantations.
William Manson, M. P. P., has
received from Victoria information
relative to the planting of experimental orchards in the Skeena
River valleys. R. M. Wlnslow, the
horticulturist of the department,
has written that he is coming here
early in May to proceed with the
work.
He has ordered 800 fruit trees
for planting in the experimental orchards in the Kltsumkalum and
Lakelse Lake districts.
He will, upon arrival proceed to
these points and then go into the
question with the farmers, explaining the system to the settlers and
make distribution of the trees.
Following this there will be a
demonstration of laying out an orchard and properly planting the
trees. In this way the settlers will
be given the fullest benefits and
will be in shape to proceed with
thet work of planting in a general
way.
The intention of the government
is to encourage the planting of orchards in these valleys and by assisting in the work in the way outlined, it is believed better results
will follow than if each settler proceeds along his own line to find
out all for himself.
The form of application to be
used by the settlers sets forth quite
fully, the objects sought. It states
that the department of agriculture
of the Province of Britisii .Columbia
being desirous of testing the capabilities of new and untried districts
for the growing of fruit, is prepared
to furnish a limited number of fruit
trees of good and likely varieties
to suitable persons in such districts
for co-operative testing.
By this experimental work the department of agriculture expects to
secure information along the following lines:
1. The suitability of the district for the growing of useful varieties of fruit.
2. The suitability of varieties
most likely to be good for home
orchard and commercial use.
3. The methods of culture most
suitable to the district.
4. In certain cases the adaptability of new and untried varieties
in both the old and new districts.
In any case where the department
furnishes trees to experimenters on
this basis the latter will be expected
to make application.
The application form addressed to
W. E. Scott, deputy minister of
agriculture,  reads:
"I hereby make application for a
variety of fruit trees as follows:
(Varieties and quantities to be
set forth.)
"It is my desire to co-operate
with tbe department of agriculture
in this way to aid the successful
growing of fruit in this district.
This application being granted, 1
undertake to give the trees proper
attention and care along the lines
advised by the horticultural branch
of the department and report annually to the provincial horticulturist
at Victoria, on the progress and results of the experiment.
"Signed by the applicant, with
postoffice, date and district."

BLAMING   CAPTAIN
Skipper of the Iroquois Says He Attempted to Get Help for
Those on Wreckage.
The  Charge   of   Deserting  His   Passengers  Is  Denied  by
Him
VICTORIA, April 13.—The death
roll from the sinking of the steamei
Iroquois has been increased to at
least twenty. The names of William
Aiken, George Webber and Mrs.
Green and P. Green have been added to the former list.
Captain Sears is being criticised
because it is felt that he did not
see to his passengers reaching safety as he should have done, but instead, it is hinted lie appears to
have looked after his own safety.
In this connection the statement
of the captain is that he risked hia
life to get assioe.tuice for those on
the upper works.
Captain A. A. Sears' statement as
to how he got to shore was as follows:
"We left the dock at Sidney at
the regular hour this morning with
a heavy load of general freight, including considerable hay, fertilizer
and iron. The wind was blowing
rather strong from the southeast,
but 1 have gone out in worse storms
than the one this morning. When
we were about to make the entrance
to Canoe Channel the wind struck
us on the beam and together with
the seas gave the vessel a slight list.
Her cargo then shifted to the lee
side and when an officer informed
me of this I sent the first mate witn
deck hands below to try and right
her. While they were below T put
her to the wind, but soon it was
found that she would not right herself. I immediately headed her for
Roberts Bay, with the hope that
we might reach shore before she
went down. We had not gone far,
however, before she commenced to
settle rapidly.  '
"When 1 saw that it was impossible to make the share, I ordered
one of the lifeboats launched and
In this I put the three ladies who
were aboard, and six of the men
passengers. They, however, seemed
to be unable to manage the craft,
and as she* swung in the trough of
the seas, she swamped. Most of
those who were aboard of her were
able to regain a hold on the boat.
As the Iroquois settled her upper
deck broke away and many of the
passengers got on this as weir- as
other pieces of wreckage which
were floating in the immediate vicinity.
"The other lifeboat came to the
surface about twenty feet from
where I was on the upper deck. We
soon secured it, but I discovered
that a considerable portion of it
had been stove in.
"I then called for volunteers to
leave the upper deck of the ship,
which was almost overladen with
people, and in response the chief
engineer and the three Indians came
with me in the badly smashed lifeboat. I did not leave the wreckage
until twenty minutes after the vessel sank and I decided that I would
attempt to make shore and seek assistance for those who were imperilled in the icy waters of the gulf.
Our small craft was well filled with
water and it was necessary to keep
bailing it out in order to keep it
afloat.
"When I left in the boat there
was a large number of passengers
on the upper deck, but most of them
had on lifebelts, and 1 did not
think that they were in any immediate danger. I told them that they
would be as safe on the wreckage
as we would be, and that is the reason why I called for volunteers to
man the boat to go ashore and seek
assistance. I did not know at that
time whether the news of our foundering had been received in Sidney
and was therefore very anxious to
get help. When I was Hearing the
shore, however, I noticed that preparations had been made and that
they were dispatching a vessel to
our assistance.

He Sees Great Future
Aid. Pattullo has tendered his
resignation as a representative of
'Vard 2 in the city council and asks
the council to accept it. While the
exact reasons for the resignation
are not fully known, it is not a surprise to many of his friends that he
has taken this course. He has Interests which call for more attention than he has been giving them
and may possibly be away from the
city a good deal in the next few
months.
It is gratifying to know that he
intends to retain his Interests in the
city maintaining an office here and
showing an interest to the welfare
of the city.
Aid. Pattullo has the greatest
faith in the future of Prince Rupert.
Even if be finds it necessary to be
away from the city for part of the
time, he will always, it is safe to
say, be ready to help in any way
possible in the advancement of the
place.

KESTREL CREW QUITS
Dissatisfied  with  Length  of  Cruise
Number Leave the
Vessel
The fishery protection cruiser
Kestrel, Captain Newromb, after
spending three months in northern
waters, lost several of her crew on
her return to the south. Considerable discontent was manifested on
board, and as soon as the vessel
)-.- '-lied Vancouver seven of her
crew, a third of the total complement, walked ashore. The Kestrel
has been engaged in fishery protection work under orders to patrol
from Cape Cook on the west coast
of Vancouver Island to Prince Rupert and Queen Charlotte Islands.
During her cruise she made a near
capture about six weeks ago, when
she rounded the north end of Vancouver Island to find the gasoline
fishing schooner America fishing
within the three-mile limit. The
Kestrel bore down upon the poacher, but the fishermen cut free their
gear, hoisted their boats inboard,
and hurried away leaving gear valued at about. $350 to fall into the
possession  of the  Kestrel.
TSIMPSEAN COMPANY
LOOKING OVER GROUND
Mr. Brutinel Representing Organization is Here to Negotiate With City Council and to Prepare for
Start Upon a Power Scheme for
Prince Rupert.
E. Brutinel, representing the
Tsimpsean Power Company, Is in
the city in connection with his company's proposition with respect to
introducing electric power to the
city. Mr. Brutinel is well known
here. He has from time to time
been a visitor to the city on business
connected with his organization. He
is here now to go more fully into
the proposition of initiating work
looking to a start being made.
The Tsimpsean Company is
strongly backed by capitalists. Mr.
Brutinel is himself a practical electrical engineer who has had large
enterprises of that character on his
hands. He Is at present identified
with a large power project near Edmonton.
Today he left by launch for the
location of the water power which
it is proposed to use by the company to give power to be used by
industrial concerns in Prince Rupert
and for a street car service also.
This power is the Thtada, about
forty-two miles up the Skeena. The
power which it is estimated can be
developed there is at least 10,000
horse power, and this may be increased   considerably   it  is   believed.
The company, Mr. Brutinel says, is
ready at any time to go ahead with
its undertaking as far as the financial  arrangements    are    concerned.
The question of when to start depends upon the demands and upon
the arrangements to be made. The
company, he says, has rights and
these they stand by. It is proposed
however to negotiate with the city
council with respect to seeking amicable arrangements. If a basis of
agreement can be reached, his company will be better satisfied, but
his company is prepared to fight for
its rights if mutual agreement cannot be reached.
Mr. Brutinel says his company I&
ready to put engineers in the field
this summer to go over the whole
ground. They will then be ready
early after the new year to start
work on the undertaking and as the
demands increase his company will
be ready to meet the increased requirements.
The company is a strong one and
among those interested are men
are connected with other industrial,
concerns which they can locate here
if suitable arrangements are
reached. These will mean much for
the city if located in Prince Rupert
If it is not agreeable, these works
can be located elsewhere and supplied with power.
Mr. Brutinel will return in a few
days when negotiations will doubtless be proposed to tlie city council.

Preliminary Hearing on the Workmen's
Cases is Occupying Considerable Time.
Bnbich,   Charged   witli    Rioting,
Now Before Magistrate
Carss
The preliminary hearings in the
cases of tbe men charged with participating In the riots at Kelly's cut
last week are proceeding slowly.
The cross examination of the witnesses by W. K. Williams, representing the accused men is very
lengthy and the proceedings are accordingly likely to take a long time.
Following tlie commitment of the
two men, Vugavlch and Vuckavich,
on charges of shooting with intent
to murder, the case of Dan Babicli
was commenced Thursday morning.
He is charged with rioting and it
is alleged against him that he threw
rocks at police officers and others
on the day of the trouble.
Sergeant Phillipson was the principal witness in the case Thursday
morning. Under cross examination
the sergeant said he did not want to
bring disgrace upon his country,
but fighting somewhat after tlie
style he mixed in on the day of the
trouble was unknown to him in his
native land. It occurred after football and cricket matches.
Magistrate Carss called attention
to the fact that they were getting a
good many thousand miles away
from the scene of the trouble.
The  case  is  being  continued.
The directors of the Prince Rupert General Hospital met yesterday
afternoon in the court house.
The question of ensuring a watei1
supply for the institution during
any time-that there was a shortage
of water came up for discussion, following the discussion a few weeks
ago. The city building inspector,
Mr. .McNeill, was present at the
meeting and reported upon the situation. He said that the erection of
a tank high enough to ensure a
supply and of sufficient capacity,
would be very costly. He had investigated tlie putting of a cylinder in
the basement or outside, connected
with a force pump, by which means
air pressure could be supplied to
force the water to the high levels.
This system would be much cheaper.
A 1,000-gallon tank could be put
in, and with fifteen minutes' pumping by one of the assistants, 300
gallons of water could be supplied
from the pressure to the highest
level. Mr. McNeill thought there
would lie very little danger that
water would not be obtainable at
tbe ground level any time, lie recommended this system which
seemed to appeal to most of the directors.
The executive committee was appointed  to go Into the matter.
On the report of the finance committee It was decided to charge the
cost of prescriptions in the hospital
to the patients. The hospital will
become responsible for the paying ol
these prescriptions and in turn collect from the patients.
P. I. Palmer reported that be had
received $50 from M. Gollin for the
hospital.
Votes of thanks were passed to
both  Mr. Gollin and  Mr,  Palmer.
The Choral Society forwarded a
statement In connection with tlie
concert given by them for which the
hospital was lo receive $56 as its
share of tlie proceeds.
The subject of the duty on the
beds for the hospital came up. The
president suggested that a move
should  be made to see if the duty

DICKENS IN LOVE
Interesting Episode in Life of the Great
Novelist is Nade
Public.
A     Story    of    the    Writer's    Early
Friendship Is Given to
the World
What is properly described as a
real addition to the published facts
which throw light on the life story
of Dickens is a little book privately
circulated In America called
"Charles Dickens and Maria Bead-
nell," an interesting summary of
which is given by Claudius Clear, in
the Britisii Weekly. The book, which
is edited by Professor George Pierce
Baker, of Harvard University, consists of "private correspondence between Charles Dickens and Mrs.
Henry Winter (nee Maria Beadnell),
the original of Dora Spendlow in
"David Copperfield" and Flora
Finching in "Little Dorrlt."
These unpublished letters by
Charles Dickens found their way
into the hands of an American collector, and contain the story of Dickens' passionate love story. Moreover—
"The letters verify many disputed
points in 'David Copperfield,' and
show that in important respects the
love affairs if its hero were those of
Dickens himself. They also prove
conclusively that in 'Little Dorrlt'
Dickens narrated much of his own
experience. We know now who Dora
in 'David Copperfield' was, and we
know what we never could have believed, that the same Dora in 'Little Dorrit' is assigned the garrulous
part of Flora Pinching."
Tlie Young Lover Never Mocked
George Beadnell, the father of
Maria, was a Lombard street banker.
He had two daughters, Margaret and
Anne, who subsequently married the
two friends by whom the novelist
was introduced into the banker's
domestic circle. In 1830, when the
novelist first became acquainted
with the Beadnells, lie was not quite
18. Maria Beadnell was a year his
senior.
"At this time (says the British
Weekly), Dickens had given up his
work in a law office, recognizing tho
painful slowness of his advance, and
with tremendous labor and speed
had conquered the mysteries of Gur-
ney's system of shorthand. He was
on the eve of becoming a member of
the staff of the True Sun. Young
Dickens fell at once in love with
Maria Beadnell, and Maria flirted
with him desperately."
But the young reporter, with his
way to make in life, and with no
very decided views as to how to do
it, was considered hardly eligible for
the daughter of a prosperous bank
manager, and his love making was
regarded with amused tolerance; an
attitude in which Maria seems to
have shared.
Maria was sent to school in Paris,
aud Dickens cherished in secret his
passion. Maria behaved to Dickens
much as Estella behaved to Pip.
"She made use of me to tease
other admirers, and she turned the
very familiarity between herself
and me to the account of putting a
constant, slight on my devotion to
her. If I had been her secretary,
steward, half-brother, poor relation
—if I had been a younger brother of
her appointed husband—1 could not
have seemed to myself further from
my hopes when I was nearest to her.
* * * J never had one hour's happiness in her society, and yet my
mind, ail round the four and twenty
hours, was harping on the happiness
of having her with me unto death."
The Parting
By 1833 Dickens realized that his
hue quest was hopeless. He appealed in vain to I lie girl whose caprices maddened and gladdened him
alternately. lie bad endured more
from his sweetheart than probably
any e-reature breathing ever bore
from a woman before. Hut the end
of it ail was a cold reply that held
nut no hope, and so the parting came
and for twenty years they saw no
more of one another. That Dickens
felt himself cruelly treated Is not
surprising.
Towards the end of the year of his
dismissal he began to print in the
Old .Monthly Magazine the first of
his 'Sketches oy Boz," which were
published in volume form In 1836,
die year Dickens married Miss Catharine Hogarth. In many of the
sketches the Beadnell circle can be
traced. But in spite of bis hard
work—"he had recurrences of bis
mood described in Headstone's appeal to Lizzie: 'I have never been
quit of you since 1 first saw you.
Ob, that was a wretched clay for me!
1  ' • You are a part of my existence.
part of myself. You have been in
every line I have ever read, since I
first came here, the rough common
boy whose poor heart you wounded
even then. You have been in every
prospect I have ever seen since—on
the river, on the sails of the ships,
on the marshes, in the clouds, in the
light, in the darkness, in the wind,
in the woods, in the sea, in the
streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that
my mind has ever become acquainted
with. * * * Oh, God bless you, God
forgive you! * * * All done, all
gone!"
Dickens' heart refused to succumb to the blow, though its effect
never left him. His marriage for
a time was happy enough, but he
felt "the one happiness" had been
missed. When bis autobiography
reached the point where he fell in
love with Maria Beadnell he could
not proceed with it  and burnt it.
"Then he set himself to the writing of 'David Copperfield,' Into
which he put his own soul. Thiji
was the book of all his books which
he liked best. He had in his heart
of hearts a favorite child and his
name was David Copperfield. As he
was writing his principal hesitation
occurred in connection with the
child-wife, Dora, who was drawn
from Maria Beadnell, as he remembered her and imagined her."
How They Met Again
In February, 1845, Maria Beadnell was married to Henry Louis
Winter. She was then 34. Ten
years after her marriage Mrs. Winter wrote to Dickens.
Dickens was delighted. He replied warmly, if not exuberantly. He
recalled their old trysting places, her
green cloak, his happiness, his misery. * * * He referred her to David
Copperfield,' and told her she would
see the touches of herself in Dora.
People had praised him for the pretty love making in 'David Copper-
field,' not knowing that it was truth,
neither more nor less. He asked
her to read the book, and to think
'How dearly that boy must have
loved me, and how vividly this man
remembers it.' "
Then, alas! they meet. And Dickens no sooner saw his old love than
his passion was quenched, for time
had wrought sad havoc on his youthful ideal. Some idea of the meeting that took place may be formed
by reading what Dickens wrote in
"Little Dorrit.' She Is Flora Finching, and he Arthur Clennam:
"Most men will be found sufficiently true to themselves to be true
to an old idea. It is no proof of an
inconstant mind, but exactly the opposite, when the idea will not bear
close comparison with the reality,
and the contrast is a fatal shock to
it. Such was Clennam's case. In
his youth he had ardently loved this
woman and had heaped upon her all
the locked-up wealth of his affection
and imagination. That wealth had
been, in his desert home, like Robinson Crusoe's money, exchangeable
with no one, lying idle in the dark
to rust, until he poured it out for
her. Ever since that memorable
time, though he had until the night
of his arrival, as completely dismissed her from any association
with his Present or Future as if she
had been dead (which she might
easily have been for anything he
knew), lie had kept the old fancy of
the Past unchanged, in its old sacred
place. And now, after all, the last
of the Patriarchs coolly walked Into
the parlor, saying in effect, 'Be good
enough to throw it down and dance
upon it.    This is Flora.'
"Flora, always tall, had grown to
be very broad, too, and short of
breath; but that was not much.
Flora, whom he bad left a lily, had
become a peony; but that was not
much. Flora, who had seemed enchanting in all she said and thought,
was diffuse and silly. That was
much. Flora, who had been spoiled
and artless long ago, was determined
to be spoiled and artless now. That
was a fatal blow."
But readers must turn up the
pages or "Little Dorrit" and read for
themselves the poignant passage In
its entirety.
The end of the story is tragic
enough. Mrs. Winter sought to continue the correspondence with her
old admirer, but without success.
Dickens did not respond with any
warmth. Then Mr. Winter failed,
and the chagrined wire appealed to
the lover of her girlhood for help
without avail. And so the romance
ends long before Mrs. Winter's death
in 1886.

TO PROTECT FORESTS
Telephone Being Put in Use in This
Connection—Advantages in
Its Use
Private initiative and. enterprise
frequently anticipates government
action in many lines of endeavor
and in the line of forest protection a
well-known lumberman of Quebec.
Mr. William Power, ex-M. P. (recently elected a director of the Canadian Forestry Association) is showing the way to all the Canadian governments in Installing telephones
throughout one of his limits, mainly
with the idea of assisting in the pro
tection of the forest from fire.
The limit in question is owned by
the River Ouelle Pulp and Lumber
Company, and is situated along the
line of the National Transcontinental Railway in Kamouraska County
Quebec, near the international boundary. The work of installation has
teen carried out under the personal
supervision of the manager, Mr. W.
Gerard Power, son of Mr. Wm
Power,
Fifty-two miles of telephone have
been strung forming a circular chain
of communication through the heart
of the tract. Telephones have been
installed for the use of the fire-
rangers at five different points along
this line, and portable telephones,
capable of being adjusted to the line
at any point, will be supplied to the
rangers and carried with them in
the woods, provided suitable instruments can be procured. If not, ordinary wall telephones are to be installed every two miles along the
line of the National Transcontinental
where it passes through the limits,
The application of the telephone
to this use is not entirely new on the
limits of the River Ouelle Company.
Over two years ago a line was built
ten miles from Ste. Perpetua village
east, connecting with the Kaniour
aska Telephone Company's line. This
first trial of the system proved such
a success that during the summer of
1910 it was extended and a line
built from the company's office In
St. Pacome, crossing the River
Ouelle Into the sixth range of the
parish of St. Onesime, and thence-
following the Ste. Anne colonization
road to the National Transcontinental, a distance of about seventeee
miles. Thence it follows the railway right of way to Lake Ste. A*ne
where two guardians are kept during
the summer season. From this point
the line continues west for nine
miles to Ste. Perpetua, joining here
the original installation. Another
branch runs from the Ste. Anne
road east to Powerville, where the
company has their mill, following
the railway right of way.
The advantage of the arrangement is obvious, and its adoption has
come into vogue quite extensively of
late years In the United States. A
ranger, using the telephone, to notify headquarters of a fire, can in a
short time have assistance sent him,
in this way having frequently the
opportunity to confine to a comparatively small area a fire which
threatened to develop into serious
proportions.

RICH   ORE   BODY
Big Thing Mine Near Carcross Has
Struck Rich Ore in
Its Workings
It is reported White Horse that
the richest ore body yet discovered
in the Big Thing mine near Carcross
has lately been struck. At tbe same
time good progress is being made in
the tunnel which will crosscut the
entire property.
STEAMBOAT MOUNTAIN
Mr. F. J. Cro'ssland, who has just
arrived in the city from Steamboat
Mountain, when interviewed by the
News-Advertiser, had some very interesting information to give concerning the recent gold discoveries
there. From the amount of work
done at present the showings certainly warrant the growing conception of the importance of the camp
nad several new strikes have been
made during the past month, In each
case showing more or less visible
signs of free gold in the quartz porphyry.
He called attention to the false
Impression that many people had
concerning the difficulties to be encountered in travelling over the
trail. The conditions of travel are
really excellent, and he has just recently travelled from Steamboat to
Hope in one day. It is impossible at
present, however, to do any prospecting on account of snow slides,
and the great quantity of snow in
the mountain and these conditions
will likely cotinue for another
month.
There is considerable building activity In the Skagit Valley, two hotels being in the course of erection,
and with between five and six hundred strangers in Hope accommodation is at a premium.
Mr. Crossland is a miner of some
experience. He has been in Rhodesia, West Africa and South America, and can speak with authority.
He feels confident that with proper
handling and economical mining this
camp will prove a great sucess.
While he has seen no high grade ore
In sight, what he has seen shows uniform values of great width, and with
transportation and other conditions
all favorable should prove a good
paying  proposition.
From the present condition of the
pack trail they should be able to
take animals over it in a week's
time. He says that there is only one
route In, and that i3 the Hope trait
The talk of trails an dwagon roads
from Chilliwack should not ue entertained for a moment.
FAITH  IN  MORESBY ISLAND
a lead of copper ore which is mineralized across about 100 feet, and
has exposed an ore body which will
apparently pay for the expense of
opening it up at depth. His assays
run from four to ten per cent copper, ten ounces In silver and small
values In gold. The physical condition of tbe property is such that the
economical form of development,
tunneling can be employed to the
best advantage.
TO WORK ATLAS
White Horse Is Pleased Over Prospects of Operations Continuing Tills  Season
Robert Lowe, who returned to
White Horse the latter part of last
week from a five months' trip
through the east, stopped at Spokane on his way west and from
there he brings the cheerful news
that the Pueblo mine will surely be
operated this season but it was not
determined whether it would be
worked by the Atlas Mining Company or by the original owner, Byron N. White, says the Star. If by
the latter, he will be here and ready
to start work by the first of May.
Mr. Lowe returned more fully than
ever convinced that the great northwest is the coming country of all
the American  continent.
A man travelling westward on a
through express, one day last week,
left his seat in the crowded dining
car, just after he had ordered his
luncheon. He went to get something he had forgotten in the Pullman. When he returned, in spite of
the fact that he left a magazine on
the chair in the diner, he found a
handsomely-dressed woman in his
place. He protested with all the
politeness he could muster, but the
woman turned on him with flashing
eyes. "Sir," she remarked haughtily, "do you know that I am one of
the directors' wives?" "My dear
madam," he responded, "if you were
the director's only wife I should still
ask for my chair."
Well-Known      Prospector      Experts
Great Activity During Com-
ing Summer
Matthew Oledo, one of the oldest
operators on Moresby Island, says
the Vancouver World, expects the
coming sumemr to witness an important impetus to development and
is satisfied that some important
shippers will be added to the money
makers of the province.       ,
Mr. Oledo is owner of the Kaslo
group of four claims, situated about
one and one-half miles from the
north arm of Tasso harbor. He has
done  considerable  surface  work   on
A little colored girl, deeply insulted by her playmate, who had
pushed her "off'n de stoop," took
her case before the justice of the
peace. He inquired into the cir-
circumstances and turning to the injured one, said: "The plaintiff is
is allowed to ask the defendant a
question In regard to the assault."
"What's dat yo' say, suh?"
"I say that you may ask the defendant a question."
"Wh-what'U Ah ask her, sah?"
"Any question you like."
The child studied the flopr a moment. Then, with the politest of
smiles, she inquired, "Sally, am yo'
mamma well?"

FRUIT   CENTRES
The attitude of tlie Provincial
Government towards this section of
the country is assuredly one of fostering the dlfferenl industries that
are to play a part in its development. An early start is to be made
to give an opportunity to have the
fruit growing In the different valleys brought at ap early date to a
commercial basis. The settlers are
not to be left to find out for themselves what are the best trees to
plant. The government will give assistance in this work and early next
month the head of tlie horitcultural
branch of the department will be
here to render assistance.
Trees are to be distributed and
aid given in the way of instruction
as to the treatment of the soil and
the care of the orchards.
It is of inestimable advantage to
have the work started off right, as
those who have had to learn their
own lessons in fruit growing in different parts of the world can testify. To have the results of years of
experience brought to aid in the
work by trained men, is something
that will be appreciated by all settlers.
The valleys of the Skeena River
will undoubtedly become great producers of fruit. The government is
determined to have the land
brought into cultivation along this
line at the very earliest date, so as
to meet the pressing demands of
this city and the mining centres that
must spring up in close touch with
these  fertile valleys.
The promised visit of Mr. Win-
slow and the work he is to do is
gratifying to Prince Rupert and is
but another Indication of the importance of this part of the province.
A LI).    PATTULLO'S   RESIGNATION
vThe resignation of Aid. Pattullo
from the council board removes a
hard worker from the city governing body. He has served ever since
the city was incorporated and while
many times strong differences of
opinion existed between himself and
others there is no denying the fact
that he gave freely of his time in
the service of the city. It is gratifying to know that he is not to sever
Bis connection with the city. He
will, it is understood, continue to be
identified with the business life of
Prince Rupert.
Tlie resignation of Aid. Patullo
will create a vacancy in the council
which should be filled as soon as
possible. In order to avoid an election with the attendant expense, it
might be wise for the citizens of
Ward 2 to consider election by acclamation to fill" the post to be
vacated.
P. I. Palmer, who contested the
election was the next highest to
aid. Pattullo. If Mr. Palmer can
lie- persuaded to accept office, the
city would be open to congratulation
if lie were returned  by acclamation.
Those who have sal with Mr. Palmer on the hospital board know his
worth in a representative capacity.
He is one of the most efficient nieni-
bers of the hospital board and
would be a decided acquisition on
tbe aldermanic board.
A strong effort, we think, should
be made to Induce Mr. Palmer to
acepl un office for which he Is well
qualified and for which he seems to
be the. logical candidate. Mr. Pal-
nie-r has large interests here. He is
a tborougb business man with excellent judgment and should be eminently acceptable to the people of
Ward  2.

TEACHERS'   CONVENTION
VICTORIA — Premier McBride,
Hon. II. E. Young, minister of education, and a number of other prominent Britisii Columbians will give
addresses at the annual convention
of the Britisii Columbia Provincial
Teachers' Institute, which is to be
held in Victoria, opening on April
18. Well-known educationists will
discuss subjects of interest to the
teachers, among them being Miss
Alice Ravenhill, late lecturer on hygiene in King's College for Women,
University of London. She will
speak on "The Intelligent Observation of Children." The sessions are
to be held in the George Jay School.
The opening address will be given
by Mr. E. B. Paul, M. A., president
of the institute, and Mayor Morley
will also give an address of welcome. The convention will close on
April 20. Indications are that there
will be a large number of teachers
in attendance.
to arrive within measurable distance
of success.
He declares that he owes not a
little help to the services of a clair-
voyante. When his party first started to explore the bottom of the bay
they recovered a piece of wood of
the size of a finger nail. Ho took
this to the stargazer, and without a
word of explanation being given to
her, the wise woman took the fragment in her palm, closed her eyes
and at once said, "I have a curious
sensation as though I am under water." Then she went on to say the
little chip had been broken off a
sunken vessel which was lying to
the "left" of the spot whence It had
been recovered.
Pressed to explain the exact
meaning of "left" as used by her,
tlie clalrvoyante confessed she
could not. She added, however,
that she could see in her vision
something like the end of a mast
rising and sinking with the water.
The colonel said there was no mast
showing, but she persisted that
something like a mast was there.
When Colonel Foss went to Tobermory shortly afterwards he did
see a stick bobbing up and down in
the manner described. It had been
placed there on a buoy by a diver
some time before to indicate where
an old gun had once been dredged
up. This was a few yards away
from where they had orignally beein
working, and, true enough, on the
machinery being shifted to the spot
the Florencia was located beyond a
doubt.

INDIA'S PROBLEM
FARM ALTERED
AGASSIZ—P. H. Moore, for some
time attached to the provincial department of agriculture and recognized as one of the most valuable
and efficient members of the service,
has severed his connection with the
provincial government and has come
to Agassiz, where he assumes the
superintendency or the Dominion ex.
perimental farm.
In consequence, no doubt to a
large extent, to the progressive policy of the province in the establishment of its various demonstration
orchards and its comprehensive propaganda for the introduction of the
best methods for fruit growing, the
scope and policy of thte Dominion
farm is, under tlie new superintendent, to be verzy materially altered—
reorganization being in fact involved. The matter of fruit testing,
etc., will be left largely to the province, hereafter, the Dominion farm
at Agassiz being made primarily a
first class dairying demonstration
farm, with sheep, hogs, horses, and
poultry,'and only ten acres or thereabouts set aside tor special horticultural work. This latter branch will
be specially cultivated also under
Dominion auspices at Salmon Arm,
at Windermere, and at some one
point in the Okanagan district. At
Agassiz it is the intention to erect a
large dairy barn illustrating the very
best appliances and methods in the
care ot a herd of fifty milking cows.
A new model dairy is also to be established and efforts will be directed
towards solving in the most practical and helpful manner the various
problems which present themselves
lo vex the soul of the dairy farmer
in British Columbia. Special studies
are also to be made as to rotation of
crops, so that advice may be given
provincial agriculturists as to rotations iic-st suited to the conditions
prevailing in  British Columbia.

Treasure Seekers Have Found Florencia, of Spanish Armada
at  Tobermory
They were discussing a certain
authoress at dinner, and a well-
known critic raised a laugh by remarking, "Well, her hair's red, even
if her books are not." The mild
young man in the corner male n
mental note of the sally for future
use, and at another dinner party
shortly afterward lie carefully guided the conversation into literary
channels. Fortunately, some one
mentioned tlie desired name, and be
triumphantly called out, "Well, she's
got rod hair, even if her books
haven t."
Lieut.-Col. .Mackenzie fFoss, chief
or the syndicate or treasure hunters
operating in Tobermory, bay, Isle of
Mull, has now no longer any doubt
that lie has located the lost Spanish
galleon, Florencia. In three weeks'
time divers will, if all goes well, be
aide to enter tbe vessel, and already
calculations of a kind to make the
mouth water are being indulged in
as to the possible hoard of gold and
silver to be found there.
The Florencia wns one of the bigger vessels of Spain's "Invincible
Armada," which, fleeing nortli after
the early channel disasters of 1388,
was blown ashore near Toboremory.
At various times there have been attempts to recover the bullion reputed to be in the vessel's strong
looms,  but Colonel  Foss is tlie first
A lecture on India and her problems was delivered at the Sikh Temple in Kitsilano recently by Mr.
Surem M. Bose, who Is announced as
a high-caste Hindu,traveller, scholar
and spokesman for New India. The
address covered too wide a field to
permit of detailed treatment of any
particular branch, and was more
than anything else a brief sketch of
the history of India, and a synopsis
of the subjects with which subsequent lectures will deal.
Mr. Bose began his discourse with
a description of India's ancient civilization, her advanced position in
literature, philosophy and metaphysics, and her achievements in a more
material way, as evidenced by the
present existence of some of the finest specimens of architecture and
building in the world, which have
stood for many centuries. Her natural resources and wealth of production made her the central trading
point of the world, and the various
European nations, one after another
found advantage in carrying on commerce with her, until England established her authority about one hundred years ago. The weakness of
India, according to the speaker, has
been that she lacked a compact national life. She was a peaceful and
opulent nation, and in ancient times
had been the refuge of all the persecuted peoples of other nations. She
had never sought to unify herself,
and protect herself against foreign
aggression. It was true that in the
rapid advance of material progress
in Europe she had tallen behind. She
bad need of contact with the western
world, and has unquestionably benefitted by it. But she does cheerfully
accept the position or a conquered
nation. Whether or not she would
have benefitted more or less in the
absence of Britisii rule it was impossible to say, bul it was plain that In
the present state or affairs there was
much that was unjust and that
should  be remedied.
It was stated, for example, that
tlie money expended tor education in
India amounted to only a cent and
a quarter per capita per annum,
while the amount expended tor military purposes amounted to twenty
cents, and England, from opium nad
liquor alone, realizes a profit or
twelve cents per capita per annum.
Although England derives a revenue
of thirty million pounds a year from
India there are ninety minion people
there who are continually on the
verge of starvation and never know
what it is to have a full meal, in
spite of the fact that they are Indus-
trfous and frugal, and regardless of
whether crops are good or bad. And
such a meal can be had for two
cents.
It was true that formerly India
suffered from famines, but they
were only occasional and were the
direct result of failure or crops, but

ago, thirty per cent of the people
could read and write, and now only

there was free education throughout

SEEK TREASURE
Believing that the treasure still
lies concealed on Cocos Island,
awaiting a company to send a ship
well equipped with the latest modern appliances to remove the great
amount of earth which has piled
over the millions of dollars of riches
placed there by the Spaniards, Captain Fred Hackett, of Vancouver,, is
preparin gto make another trip to
the southern Island, having secured
sufficient capital to purchase a ship
and outfit her with apparatus with
which he confidently .expects to un
earth the hidden treasure.
Under the direction of the Cocos
Island Treasure and Hydraulic Company, Captain Hackett is arranging
the expedition. The old barque Hes.
per, formerly owned by a local syndicate, but which was sold at Seattle
recently to Hall Brothers, shipbuilders, to satisfy a libel claim, has been
purchased by the company. The old
ship is to be docked immediately to
be overhauled, and new spars and
gear will be placed on her, so that
she will be in every way satisfactory
for the cruise outlined for her.
Captain Hackett sailed nine years
ago, In the brigantine Blakeley, for
the renowned island, but met with
little success, and since then he has
not visited the place. Undaunted by
previous failures, he will make another attempt. This time his outfit
will include hydraulic machinery
with which he hopes to unearth the
supposed great fortunes left by the
Spaniards many years ago.
The story of the pirate gold is old,
but Captain Fred Hackett, who will
command the Hesper, has something
new, which he believes will make
him worth many millions.
He tells the story of the treasure
as follows:
"In 1835, the Peruvians and Chileans were at war, and the former,
rather than give up their state treasures to the latter, deposited them
on board the British barque, Mary
Deir, which was then In port. Captain L. Thompson, of the barque,
was really a pirate, who sailed away
as soon as be got the treasure on
board. Fearing mutiny in his crew,
he landed on Cocos Island, nad buried the money, which is supposed to
amount to about  $15,000,000."
Stories of shipwreck, disaster,
death and the usual talk that mixes
up with pirate treasure, came down
through a couple of generations until Captain Hackett says he now lias
'the original draft, of its location on
Cocos Island, and is going to make
his third attempt to get the ancient
gold.
Captain Hackett claims that a
land slide prevented him from reaching the money on his former trip,
but now that he is supplied with
hydraulidndg machinery he will be
able to make the quest possible.
CAUSE OF DISASTER
During the inquiry into the foundering of the steamer Sechelt off
Beecher Bay on Friday, March 24,
before Captain Eddie, the chief witness was Captain H. G. Jarvis, one of
the owning partners of the lost vessel.
Asked by Captain Eddie as to
what in his opinion, as a seaman,
was the cause of the disaster, Captain Jarvis replied as follows:
"In my own mind I am convinced
that the actual cause,of the disaster
will never be determined or thoroughly understood, but 1 am as positive as if I were an eyewitness of the
disaster, that the vessel did not cap
size, or that she was cost through
unseaworthiness—the details given
by eyewitnesses fully supports this
opinion.
"These eyewitnesses stated to me
that when they first saw the Sechelt
she was on her proper course about
one and three-quarter miles off
Cape Church, and proceeding without any apparent trouble until after
passing Cape Church when she suddenly sheered off at right angles to
her course and headed across the
Straits of Juan de Fuca.
"From this it will be observed by
anyone familiar with tbe local conditions, that the vessel had accomplished that portion of her trip
where there would be any serious
danger (viz., Race Islands Passage)
and it would also be apparent that
having passed safely through the
spot where there was any real danger, she was both seaworthy and
well managed.
"Speaking as a seaman (and as
one who had shared with the late
Captain H. V. James a portion of his
professional career), I have the
strongest reasons for believing that
the catastrophe came about on account of the vessel being suddenly
rendered unmanageable. To my
mind it is clear, that without warning, she was completely disabled and
crippled by some inevitable accident.
"Whether this was in the nature
of trouble with the machinery or
steering gear, loss of eitner the rudder of propeller, must remain a matter for conjecture, but it is evident
that had everything been well on
board, the vessel would never have
swung suddenly off at right angles
to her course, and brought a heavy
squall of wind, together with a nigh
sea on her beam. Captain James
was too skilful a seaman and resourceful a man to allow his vessel
to get into so dangerous a position
"The ability of the engineer was
also without question since he had
been in charge of the Sechelt's engines throughout the whole of last
summer and had kept them In such
first class order that the vessel had
not missed a single trip on his account."
BOTH   OPPOSE   RECIPROCITY
Two well known provincial poll
ticians have recently expressed
their vlewe wltn regards to reci
procity, and both condemn it severely . The first was W. E Scott, Dep
uty Minister of Agriculture, who In
an Interview at Nelson, reported in
the Daily News, said: " I am very
hotly opposed to the reciprocity
agreement and consider that if it
becomes a law it will work a very
great hardship on the fruit growers
of British Columbia. I do not propose to deal in extenso with the sub
ject here, but it would simply mork
out in this manner: The cost of
production in Washington and Oregon trom figures obtained from the
large fruit grownig centres is 45
cents per box. The cost of labor
an dof all material, including implements used in production in
this province is fully 50 per cent
higher than on the southern side of
the international boundry line, consequently it costs us in British
Columbia 60 cents a box to produce
ou rfruit. Remove the duty of 13
cents a box and with freight rates
about equal as they are, it means
that the Washington and Oregon
producer could sell fruit In Winnipeg, f.o.b. ranch, at 50 cents and
put five cents per box in his pocket,
whereas the British Columbia grower, in order to compete with the
pomologist on the American side,
would have to dig down and.take
ten cents out of his pocket in order
to sell In the prairie capital. But
everything points to tlie fact that
tlie agreement will not go through,
and 1 sincerely hope it will not."

NOTHING indicates more clearly the
development of this city than the
rapidity with which views of It become
out of date. On the accompanying page are
shown some scenes which were taken within
a few months' time, and yet the city has in
that short time outgrown these.
The next twelve months will see a much
more rapid development than that of the
past year. The accompanying illustrations
serve to show the magnificent waterfront
which is possessed by Prince Rupert. It is
the harbor without an equal on the Pacific
Coast.
For the information of outside readers,
who have not seen Prince Rupert, some facts
in connection with the city may not be out
of place. To local residents the statements
in this article will not convey much information.
Prince Rupert is the terminus of the
Grand Trunk Pacific on the Pacific Coast.
It will be the avenue through which will
pass the trade to and from the ports to be
reached by the Pacific routes, whether these
are in British Columbia, Alaska or any other
parts of the American continent, Siberia,
Japan, China and the ports of Europe.
The Grand Trunk Pacific is rushing the
completion of its road as quickly as possible. Prince Rupert will be made ready in
every way to handle the trade of the vast
network of branch lines of this new transcontinental   as   soon   as  the   rails   are   laid

across the continent. The construction of
branch lines in the prairies is proceeding all
the time, so that there may be a first-class
system established in the west as soon as the
through connection is given with Prince
Rupert. The branch line to connect Vancouver with the main line will not, it is
acknowledged, be constructed until after
connection is made with ,Prince Rupert, the
company's own terminus. It is this city that
is to be the main port of the company on
the Pacific Ocean and ffom it will ply the
ocean-going vessels that are to connect with
the ports in Asia and by the Mediterranean
with Europe.
The Grand Trunk Pacific has over one
hundred miles of rails laid out of Prince
Rupert, and is ready this spring to operate
a continuous service with locomotives of the
best type and ample cars both for freight
and for passenger traffic. The line Is being
continued as fast as it can be into the Interior of the province, tapping as it goes rich
valleys which will produce all kinds of fruits
and vegetables to meet a growing demand.
Thousands of acres of land are awaiting the
fruit grower and general farmer along the
line of the railway. The land has been
proved to be fertile and the -cost of clearing
is less than in some other parts of the province. The market offering for dairy produce,
for fruit and for vegetables is probably one
of tbe best in the world. Prince Rupert is
a quick growing city with few opportunities
within close touch of it for growing fruit
and vegetables. It depends In large measure
upon theBe fertile valleys along the line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific for Its supply.
While the farmers of Oregon and Washington and of southern British Columbia have
found it possible to make themselves Independent out of fruit growing with the competition which prevailed there, those who
plant in the northern valleys will be assured
of a better market, ever Increasing, and
higher prices.
The Grand Trunk Pacific is also Invading a territory which has been proved to be
rich in minerals but which, owing to the
absence of cheap transportation In the past,
has not been exploited to any very great
extent. Now, this situation is entirely
changed. Investors are crowding on the
steps of the prospectors for the purpose of
developing the properties which are proving
far richer than was ever expected.
Prince Rupert has warehouses that
would do credit to Vancouver or Seattle.
Substantial buildings of four or five stories
in height are stocked by large wholesalers
to handle the trade in every line that is
ofrering.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
RECIPROCITY EFFECT
Municipal Journal Deals With the Question From Independent
Standpoint.
Some of the Difficulties Which the
Country Has to Face nt
Present Time
The effect of the proposed reciprocity agreement on our munlcpali-
ties is discussed by the editor of the
Canadian Municipal Journal, which
is, of course, a strictly non-partisan
publication and known only as a
tearless champion of the rights of
the masses.    The Journal says:
"No man with any pretensions to
serious thought can deny that reciprocity with the United States, as
inflated at Washington and introduced into Canada by the Laurier
Government, is by far the most important even in history since Confederation. In fact, in many ways it
may prove far more important than
Confederation. For even its advocates may choose to label the strongly patroitic fervor of Mr. Champ
Clark as a joke, the dislocation of
the business situation, not merely
just now, but for at least the periodical nervousness seen for about a
year before every presidential election, would surely affect the neighing country if al led with it, even by
reciprocity. But is it fair to treat
Mr. Champ Clark's utterance as hysterical or jocular? It is generally
understod that this gentleman is in
line for the presidency of the great
republic. Is it courteous to him, or
to his fellow-citizens to suggest that
a leading staesman should play the
part of a buffoon in the chamber of
congress? Is it not more likely that
Mr. Champ Clark's speech was at
'east a case of the 'wish' being "father to the thought,' even If it were
not uttered in a spirit of prophecy?
"Many aspects of reciprocity as at
present discussed are outside the
field of this Journal, more especially as the question is being treat
ed not as one that involves Canada
as a nation, but as a partisan measure, to be backed by a solid party
vote.
"But it would be a lapse of duty
not to call the attention of the municipalities to the effect that reciprocity may have upon them. And
here let it be urged as strongly as
possible that every Canadian should
approach the question from the point
of view of the best interests of Canada as a whole.
"Within the last few years many
factories have started up all over
Canada, among them being quite a
few which are branches of parent
factories in the United States. Dr.
Robertson, in a recent address,
spoke of the gratification felt by the
Commission on Technical Education
at. finding so many small places with
a single good factory, supporting a
good farm community around the
town and shipping goods all over
Canada.
"The question for the municipalities is whether existing factories will
flourish, and whether new ones will
be built. And it should not be forgotten in discussing this phase of
the question that the manufacturing
interests do not merely consist of the
capitalist—against whom the farmers are incited by unscrupulous persons—but all employed in them and
all supported by them, Including the
farmer. Too many speakers talk as
if legislation hostile lo the manufacturers would only affect the factory
owners.
"Many cities are advertising for
factories, and offering Inducements
to new Industries. Would they be
procurable if reciprocity 'were in
force? Speculation on this question
can be answered by experience; history stales empliatcally what happened to the manufacturing centres
under reciprocity In previous years.
A Toronto financier has stated that
the capital already subscribed for
new flour mills has been withdrawn..
"To come to individual cases. Canadian ocean ports, especially on the
Atlantic, would certainly suffer.
Trade would be diverted from Montreal and Quebec, from St. John,
N. B., and Halifax, N. S., to the ports
In the United States. Toronto would
derive no benefit from deepening
the Welland Canal; while to construct the Georgian Bay Canal would
be a waste of money. Vancouver
would yield her magnificent possibilities to Seattle, while Prince Rupert would die in infancy. Canadian
municipalities have depended for
several years upon British capital to
finance the tremendous development
which is as widespread as the Dominion. Wolud British capital be as
willing to put Its money Into this
country if reciprocity—with its pos
sible effect on municipal reliability
and growth—were adopted? A cable received in Montreal states that
a certain financial deal with Scotch
financiers has been called off 'owing
to reciprocity.' Is this an index of
what may be generally expected?
"Again, let it be urged—and most
emphatically—-that this grave question should be treated as a national
one. What should be sought is what
is best for Canada as a whole. Even
If the municipalities should be hurt
by it, if the gain to the rest of Canada is greater than the loss, by all
means, let us have it. Let every
trace of selfishness be dropped, and
let the question be 'the good of Canada.' Let the members of the House
of Commons rise to the level of
statesmen, and drop all party blae.
"A large delegation of western
farmers recently waited on Sir Wilfrid Laurier and it was openly stated
that many of the delegates were still
American citizens. Now, while Canada is right in offering a welcome to
all decent, well-behaed immigrants,
no resident of Canada should meddle
with Canadian politics until he
deems Canada good enough to become a Canadian citizen.
"The solution of this difficult
question would be for Sir Wilfrid
Laurier to follow the constitutional
precedent of the Empire. He and
his ministry are not only within
their rights in introducing reciprocity, but more, if they believe it to be
good for Canada, they would not be
doing their duty if they did not advocate it. But—and here is the crux
of the situation—it is an unwritten
law of British parliamentary practice that when the government introduces legislation upon which it has
not received the oplni6n of the electors, it shall, after discussing the
question fully, dissolve the House,
and appeal to the country.
"This is the only course which
lies before the Laurier government.
They must appeal to Canada, and
with the voters of Canada must lie
the decision as to whether we shall
have reciprocity or not."
 o	
"Can 1 stay here all night?"
asked the man without any baggage.
"Yes, sir," answered the hotel
clerk, "if you can put up "
The man carelessly tossed a one-
hundred dollar bill at him.
"I was going to say, sir," resumed
the clerk, "if you can put up with
our accommodations. Boy, show
this gentleman up to 314."

REAR SEASON
Two thousand acres of land in
the lake district, north of A;»»ba«ca
Landing in the Province of Alberta,
has been leased for a term of years
by Dr. T. J. Burgen, of Spokane,
and his associates in eastern Washington, who purpose operating a
mink and muskrat farm as a commercial enterprise. The work of
preparing the farm and stocking it
with animals will begin early in
June. Dr. Burgen said of the project:
"I do not recall having Heard of a
similar experiment anywhere in
Canada, but 1 have devoted al' of
my spare time during the last seven
years to careful investigation and I
a mthoroughly convinced that the
undertaking will be a big financial
success.
"1 was over the ground recently
and chose the location. We are arranging to place 5,000 rais into the
lake, which is well stocked already.
Dark rats will be used, as the pelts
are of a higher commercial value
than  the lighter varieties.
"The rats require no food other
than what they can get themselves
except In unusual cases. We shall
prepare for emergencies by growing
carrots, which will be fed to the
animals if necessary. The muskrat
pelts are worth from 50 cents to
$1 each.
"It. is a much more difficult problem to handle mink, as special pens
are necessary and the netting sunk
deep into the ground so they will
not escape. We shall secure 500
animals when we begin operations
in June ana snould have several
thousand for commercial purposes a
year from next winter. The mink
will be fed on fish, which are abundant on our lease. We shall also
handle some cattle, horses and dogs
in   connection   with   the   fur   farm."
Dr. Burgen said that expert trappers will assist In the work, and
protection will be given by the
Northwest   Mounted   Police,
The bear shooting season will
open this year much later than
usual. Snow is still deep on Vancouver Island, being eight feet deep
in some of the localities most frequented by the bear, and it is likely
to be some days before the huntsmen receive the good news by wire
that will bring them flocking there.
Although the trout fishing has
not been as good as was hoped, on
account of the swollen streams,
some very large fish have been
caught. Several Dolly Vardens, tipping the scales at seven and eight
pounds, have been pulled out, and
Mr. Bryan Williams, the Provincial
Game Warden, himself took a glittering heap of four-pounders out of
the Chilllwack River.
Some of the fishermen from the
States say that the gigantic fellows
they catch here recall the old days
on their own rivers, which are now
things to be remembered, and
talked about by firesides, and only
half believed by the youngsters.
RIFLE (LI li
The members of the Prince Rupert Rifle Association are organized
for the season and expect to have a
largely increased membership Ihis
year. The association is regularly
organized under the provisions of
the Dominion act and hold regular
practices. The range across the
harbor is a good one, affording excellent opportunity for training.
The rifle associations of the
country do a great work improving
the shooting of Ihe members who
belong. The practice is beneficial
and interesting and is to be encouraged by all. All who wish to belong to the association should at
once identify themselves with the
organization so as to get all the benefits  for  the season.
KING'S TRAINER
King George of England -is probably the only sovereign in Europe
who has an athletic "trainer." He
has just honored Eugene Sandow,
Ihe strong man, with an appointment by royal warrant lo be "professor of scientific and physical culture to  His  Majesty."
Press despatches declare, how-
over, that the honor is a recognition
of    Sandow's  efforts  at   improving
the rank and file of the British
arm, rather than an acknowledgment that any personal benefit
would be derived by the King from
his  services.
PRINCE  RUPERT   TODAY
(Continued From Page Six)
Prince Rupert is the base of supply, the official centre and the outfitting point for all parts of northern British Columbia. It will always
remain so.
During the coming summer the
schedules of the different transportation companies will give to the
port at least a steamer a day from
the south.
The city's health is excellent.
Sanitary conditions are well looked
after. It has its sewers, waterworks, electric lighting and telephone system and all other modern
conveniences.
Within the bounds of the city
there is being erected the largest
fish cold storage plant in the world.
It wil lafford a market for all kinds
of fish with which the waters off
the port abound. The city is tlie
natural centre for the greatest fishing trade on (he Pacific Coast, and
it is doubtful if any other part of
the world can offer greater inducements in this line of industry. It
is estimated that from 25,000 to
30,000 people will be sustained here
as a result of the fishing industry
alone. When the Canadian Fish
and Cold Storage Company is in full
operation, together with other enterprises of a similar kind, It is estimated that at least a full trainload
of fish products alone will leave the
city daily to meet the requirements
of the interior parts of the country
served by the Grand Trunk Pacific.
The lumber industry is yet in its
