Splendid Day of  Sports  Held  in the
City on Wednesday.
Close Contests by the Children and
Also in the Adult Competitions
May 24 was celebrated in royal
style in Prince Rupert, the whole
day long being given over to the
events. Through the courtesy ot
W. C. C. Mehan, general superintendent ot the Grand Trunk Pacific
here, and the other officials of the
company, the wharf was put at the
disposal of the citizens for the
events. This made it very convenient as a good straight course was
obtainable for all the events.
While May 24 is recognized in the
city as essentially Children's day,
July 1 being devoted to the men's
events, there were several adult
races and other events during the
day which helped to give variety to
the sports. The children's events
however, were the great ones.
Starting off early in the morning,
there were no dull moments until
after seven in the evening, with a
short stop for lunch.
The Indian bands in the city
marched down to the wharf In the
morning and gave several selections,
massed under the baton of Job Nelson, of the Kitkattal band. With
over a hundred pieces comprised
within the seven different bands, the
result was excellent, more ■ especially in view of the fact that they had
never rehearsed together.
Good  Hares
The fat man's race proved an interesting one, being won by J. R.
Beatty in excellent style. The long
distance road race for three miles
was the one about which the chief
interest centred as each of the contestants had many friends backing
him up, W. H. Shuman won the
cup, winning only after a sharp dash
at the close against a., Nicholson.
Within about fifty yards of the finish, the mqn were bothered with a
dog that crossed their track and accusations of fouling were made by
their friends.
S. Holmquist went out of bis
course and had to give up all hope
of being in the finish.
Fancy  Drill
During the afternoon Lieutenant
Wright, of the Salvation Army, with
a company of children trained by
her put on an excellent programme
o ffancy drills, bar exercises, Indian
club swinging and other exercises.
A sereis of boxing oontests for the
boys was also provided by the committee with W. A. Casey as referee.

Skidegate and Kincolith Indian Bands
Win the Highest Places in
Keen Rivalry Among    the    Various
Organizations Entered for
Through the effort of J. S. Gray
and L. Crippen, who did a vast
amount of missionary work in connection with the event, the first Indian band contest held in Prince Ru-
port on May 24 was a decided success. Seven bands gathered—the
Skidegate, Kincolith, Kitkatla, Port
Simpson, iMetlakatla, Naas and Upper Naas. The Indians appeared in
their brilliant uniforms in some Instance almost resembling military
The concert was held under the
auspices of the civic committee In
charge of the celebration. The preliminary arrangements having been
made by Mr. Gray and Mr. Crippen.
Dr. Clayton presided at the con-
tet which was held in the Empress
Theatre. The judges, all former
bandsmen of high standing, were
W. L. Barker, J. Casley and W. Godson, with J. S. Gray assisting, had
a heavy task to perform in awarding
the prizes. The keenest rivalry was
shown to exist among the different
bands and the large crowd of sympathizers which accompanied them to
the city.
After a full afternoon's playing
the Gray cup was awarded to the
Skidegate band as the best rendition
of an overture. The Kincolith band
won first place in the march playing.
.1. H.  Hawthornthwaite, M. P. P., Is
Given  * ictory Over Nanaimo Loral
J. H. Hawthornthwaite, member
for Nanaimo, is once more in good
standing with the Socialist party,
but the Nanaimo local is extinct, its
charter having been taken away
from it, to be handed over bye and
bye to another group of Nanaimo
Socialists, who, if they are just as
short as Mr. Hawthornthwaite on
the monistic philosophy, are longer
than their comrades on practical
politics, says a Vancouver despatch.
It will be remembered that Mr.
Hawthornthwaite was expelled with
contumely from the Nanalmo Socialist party on the grounds, among others, of his lack of orthodoxy. Among
the reasons given was that he was
no debater, having been defeated by
a working miner in an argument on
the true nwardness of the monistic
philosophy. He was also ordered to
send In his resignation as a member
of the bouse.
As might have been expected it
took more than the monistic philosophy {o upset Mr. Hawthornthwaite.
He promptly appealed to the executive committee of the British Columbia end of the partq, which met the
other day, and found that the
charges against the member for
Nanaimo were "frivolous, malicious
and unwarrantd," and that in the
best Interests of the party the charter of the Nanaimo Socialist local
should be cancelled.
Reported That A. G. NacKay Will Enter
Sir Wilfrid's Government.
He Is Touring Ontario in the Inter-
csts of Reciprocity at tbe
Present Time
(Special to The Journal)
TORONTO, May 20.—The question which is being discussed in political circles in Toronto, is the probable elevation of A. G. MacKay,
leader of the Liberal opposition in
the Ontario legislature to a position
in the Ottawa cabinet. It is pointed
out that Mr. MacKay has been in
Ottawa several times lately and has
held long conferences with Sir Wilfrid  Laurier  and  his  ministers.
Before he started on his tour of
the province, after the close of the
provincial legislature, he consulted
the federal leaders and his tour is
being made in defence of reciprocity, not provincial issues.
Representatives  of  Victoria  Syndicate
Will Visit Banks Island
for Inspection.
Members   uK    Party   Are   Relighted
with the City of Prince Rupert and Its Outlook
The arivral in the city this week
of a party of men looking over a
marble proposition on Banks Island
with a view to taking it over, is another indication that this part of the
province is very much in the public
eye at the present time. The party
comprises R. J. Harlow, president,
and C. C. Johns, managing director
of the Earth Trusts, Limited, of Victoria, and D. Evans, a mining expert
of Vancouver. The members of the
party are all surprised to find con
ditions in Prince Rupert as they
Thanks to the system of knocking
that prevails in the south they came
here ready for the most disagreeable weather only to find that when
they left Victoria and Vancouver behind they parted company with the
wet and cold, ihey arrived here to
find continued sunshine and weather
conditions ideal.
A trip about, the city, where they
witnessed the work in progress on
the streets, revealed to them the
immense possibilities here and it
would not be surprising If Instead
of investigating a marble proposition alone they look into the question of real estate here.
The surprise with which this party of speculators has been seized
apon arrival in this city is but the
common experience of all those
that have visited tbe city this spring.
After the reports made for the purpose of injuring the city in the south
it is difficult for the visitors who
come here to understand that while
for the past month the southern
cities have been experiencing all
kinds of changes in temperature and
have been inconvenienced from rainfall that the weather conditions here
for nearly two months have been
such that workmen have not lost a
day on the street work and a continuous period of sunshine has pre-
vatled during the whole of thai time.
With the developmenl of the
trade, the establishing of tourist hotels and the providing of some of
the smaller attractions looked for In
connection with the tourist trade,
this port will undoubtedly become
one of the most sought tourlBt centres on the Pacific. It has the natural attractions. Joined with an
equable climate there is scenery
Jewish People in Russia are Suspicious

Desire to Restrict Those Leading Agitation
(Special to The Journal)
NEW YORK, May 26. — The
American Jewish committee has received a despatch from the Jewish
Aid Society of Berlin, on the anti-
Jewish agitation in Russia. The
message is as follows:
"No massacres have broken out
yet, but the open and unrestricted
preparations being made for them
in tbe usual manner in Kiev and
Besarabia give occasion for the
gravest apprehensions that they may
break out any time. The authorities
are not showing any desire to restrict the activities of the black two
hundred who are clearly exciting tbe
populace to renewed massacres.'

The concert given by the Overseas
Club on the evening of May 24 in
the Empress Thaetre was a grand
success in every way. The building
was crowded and the concert was in
every respect, of a high  order.
Mayor Manson prosided and in his
introductory remarks referred to the
late Queen Victoria, with whose
name the day was connected. He
also paid a compliment to the patriotic aims of the Overseas Club and
extended a hearty greeting to all
strangers in the city, making fitting
mention of the Indian bands.
The opening number on the program, "The Union Jack," was played
by Gray's Orchetra, and two selections from "The Yeomen of the
Guard" by a quartette consisting of
Miss Nyland, Miss Ellett, Mr. Fletcher and L. Bullock-Webster, were
well received. There was a cornet
solo by Miss Mabel Gray, a song by
Miss Nyland, and Messrs. Davey and
Clapperton gave a duet "The Rivals"
in splendid form. L. Bullock-Webster, in "The Pirate Bold," rendered his selection in excellent style.
The Indian club swinging by Mr.
Porter, of the fire department, was
a good feature of the entertainment.
F. S. Ellis was beard in a musical
monologue, and .Miss Ethel Gray and
.1. S. Russell in a duet. eMiss Grant's
recitation, "Young Lochinvar," was
well received. The Highland Fling
was danced by Ethel Gray, and there
were songs by Mr. Fletcher and
James Russell. The singing of the
little Gray girls was one of the most
entertaining parts of the programme.
The cups won by the Kincolith and
Skidegate bands In the afternoon,
were presented during the evening,
and a short address given by .1. F
Macdonald, president of the Overseas Club.
Clergymen  Returning
Rev. Charles It. Sing, who has

pected home on the Prince George
tomorrow. He will occupy the pulpit on Sunday, preaching in the
morning at 11 o'clock on "Fresh
Orders," and in the evening on "Impressions of a British Columbia Conference." The sermons, in view of
the fact that Mr. Sing has been in
touch with the governing body of
the church for the past few weeks,
should be of especial interest.

Vancouver Sees Need of Getting Railway
Connection With Peace River
Is  Aroused  Over  the  ('banccs
for  Trade with New British  Columbia
The way in which other cities,
like Vancouver, view the possibilities of trade with the territory in
the northern part of the province of
Britisii Columbia, is shown in a clear
way by the following, taken from
an account of a meeting held in the
city of Vancouver a few days ago:
■It is of paramount importance
that immediate steps be taken to Impress upon the provincial government the necessity of providing, or
assisting to provide, a railway from
the coast cities to northern Britisii
Columbia and the Peace River country, and that the secretary write to
the Board of Trade asking the board
to call, at an early date, a public
meeting under the auspices of the
Board of Trade and the Tourist Association to discuss the proposed
railroad to the Peace River country."
The above was the resolution
passed at a meeting of local business
men, held at the Board of Trade offices, to consider the question of
railway communication with the
Peace River country, and the advisability of building a railroad to central British Columbia. Mr. Ewing
Buchan was in the chair, and Mr.
D. G. Williams was elected secretary.
The chairman explained that the
meeting was called to discuss informally the need and benefits to be
derived from a railroad to the Peace
River country and called on Mr. vV,
H. Malkin to address the meeting.
Mr. Malkin stated that Vancouver
wholesale trade was being limited by
present transportation rates as railroads wanted the long haul, and
also that as soon as the Grand Trunk
Pacific reached Tete Jaune Cache,
Edmonton would supply all the Fort
George country, and even Cariboo,
and " that Vancouver would suffer
considerably by this curtailment of
its' commerce.
Mr. D. G. Williams said he understood the meeting was to consider
the usefulness of a railroad built
north would do to Vancouver, irrespective of by whom it might be
built. They wanted the road because
it would open an immensely rich territory benefiting the merchants and
all interested in Vancouver; also
that it would build up the city, increase commerce, and ensure stability of value to real estate in the
city. Territory similar to the Peace
River, the Province of Tobolsk in
Siberia, had a population of nearly
2,000,000 people, and produced over
30,000,000 bushels of grain in 1901;
had 4,ODD,000 bead of cattle, and
exported about 20,000,000 pounds of
butter every year. The Peace
River has betterd climate and could
do better.
Mr, A. O. McCandless mentioned
as showing the popularity of tlie
north that, there were five propositions now before the government.
They had no trade south, very little
west and Hie railways by their
freight rates, cut Vancouver off
from a great deal of what they were
entitled to from the east. They
should get the northern trade, as
they were entitled to it. It was the
natural outlet, for central British
Columbia and a railroad was tho
only means which could secure its
lion. Carter-Cotton expressed the
opinion that a railroad north would
do Vancouver ten times more good
than the Canadian Northern. When
he visited the. north It. was a wonderful revelation both to himself and to
the Premier.
Mr. A. li. Brsklne suited that
after this year the Cariboo trade
would be cut off from Vancouver.
Self-preservation, therefore, compelled Vancouver to get a railroad
to the Peace River country.
mum salaries of railway and mall
clerks to $500 and $1,400 respectively. The present minimum is $400
and the maximum is $1,200. An
amendment to the civil service act
will change the classification of
dries in the city post office, of post
office Inspectors, office of superintendent of railway mails and in
money exchange offices by abolishing stampers and sorters class and
fourth class clerkships and substitute therefor third class clerkships
ranging from $500 to $1,000 and
divided into two classes to be known
as third class A and B.
It Is also proposed to abolish junior and second class clerkships and
substitute classes A and B of the
second class, increasing the maxi-
mnra of the class formerly known as
junior second to $1,200 and increasing Hie maximum of the former senior second class to $1,400. First class
clerkships will be divided into two
divisions A and B with salaries of
$1,800 and  $1,600  respectively.
Minimum salaries of first class
clerkships will be Increased from
$1,200 to $1,400 and a new class of
clerks to be known as chief clerks,
will be created in city post offices
subject to certain restrictions.
The amendments to the act are
also proposed to improve the position of office superintendents in city
offices and changing what was formerly a fixed salary of $1,800 to a
minimum of $1,800 and a maximum
of $2,500.
Mr. Patterson's proposed amend-
ent to the civil service act provides
for a new schedule which gives a
number of increases, including the
following: Inspector of ports $700;
assistant inspectors, $200; chief
clerks, $100; surveyors, $400; assistant surveyors, etc., $1,400; Dominion appraisers, $500; appraisers,
$400; assistant appraisers, $100;
gangers, $400; senior clerks, $400;
packers and messengers, $200.

Substantial increases in the salaries of certain officials In the customs and post, office departments are
given notice of by Messrs. Patterson

Mr. Lemieux gives notice that it Is
expedient to amend the post office
act by providing for an annual increase of the salaries of the superintendents of city post offices until
a maximum of $2,500 is reached.
The present, maximum is $1,800.

For some time past rumors have
been afloat of a controplated gigantic merger of all the Mackenzie &
Mann interests outside of the Canadian Northern Railway. These rumors have received partial confirmation by a story which appears in the
Toronto News to the effect that
when Mr. W. H. Macrae, general
manager or the Toronto Electric
Light Company, returns from England about the beginning of next
month arrangements will he pushed
forward at once to amalgamate all
the Mackenzie & Mann railway and
light; and power interests of Toronto
and vicinity.
This of itself would mean the formation of a powerful company, but
the project, as it has been talked
about among men interested in large
financial affairs, is much wider. The
story going is to the effect that an
immense corporation Is to be formed,
including the Mackenzie & Mann
properties, not onl yin Toronto, but
also in the Maritime provinces, in
British Columbia, in Mexico and elsewhere. In fact, it would include
everything with which these two
eminent financiers are connected
except the sole, though important
exception of their railway projects.
The scheme would be capitalized at
several millions, and a limited
amount, of the stock would be offered to the public.
One of the chief objects of this
great merger would be to relieve
Mackenzie & Mann from the labor
involved in the personal supervision
of so many enterprises. The present
illness of Sir Donald Mann, making
it. necessary for him to take a long
ri'st, is said to have had the effect
of hurrying this project forward,
which has been before the minds of
the two partners for u considerable
Willi thelrd other business thus
placed where it. would give them
comparatively little trouble, Mackenzie & Mann would be able to devote themselves almost wholly lo the
completion of their scheme which
has been the darling ambition of
their lives—the construction and
ownership of a railway from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
The informant of the Toronto
News, who Is stated to be one of the
directors of the Toronto Electric
Light Company, says:
"You are free to state that while
there is little new in the Toronto
electric light situation at the moment, the return of Sir William and
Mr. Macrae will probably provide a
somewhat sensational Item. It is
fully certain that a merger of the

The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite in British Columbia. Does that start you thinking?
 o ■
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact is a very important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the hub
®f the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were doing when they put their official
stamp oh Ellison.
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in tbe vicinity oi Skeeua River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
tbe collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Grand Trunk Pacific has put its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
believe the company will do as much
for townsites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison. If
you desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific  Railway Company.
STUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order class with his wares. ELLISON is in the Missouri class. Therefore, I am not. telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that can be readily verified.
STUDY     THAT      MAP.—If     you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,     then     you
should put your money into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not interested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with  the exception  of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. 'Sou may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is   now   being   opened   up,   and   for
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both by rail and water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and yZoO for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the

Additional Details Connected With the
Death of R.N.W.M.P.
How the Members    Fought    Bravely
in the North to Reach
Additional details of the tragedy
of Inspector Fitzgerald and tliree
companions of the Northwest Mounted Police, who lost their lives last
winter on a patrol between Fort
Macpberson and Dawson, are furnished by an official report of Corporal Dempster, who was in charge
of a searching party sent out from
Dawson. He tells the story of the
tinding of the remains of tlie ill-
fated party and the melancholy diary
of Fitzgerald. This has already been
told, but Corporal Dempster's report
sheds further light upon tlie causes
of the disaster and supplies records
which add to the tragic nature of the
unfortunate enterprise.
From the report it would appear
that the cause of the catastrophe was
the fact that Fitzgerald had relied
upon Constable Carter as a guide,
but that the latter had failed to find
the way to the principal pass en
route. The last entry In Inspector
Fitzgerald's diary was evidently
made while the party was proceeding down the trail to Peel River.
Corporal Dempster, of the relief party, says at that point he commenced
to fear the worst on account of the
camps that Fitzgerald's patrol had
made on their retreat being so close
together. On March 21, about three
miles below the portage on the Peel
River, he found the bodies of Constables Kinney and Taylor. There
was a camp kettle full of moose hide
cut nto small pieces which had been
boiled for soup. The two men lay
side by side, the fire being at their
feet, and each lay on his back.
Dempster's report continues:
"They had three Alaska sleeping
bags, one under and two over them.
Constable Taylor evidently committed suicide by blowing the top of his
head off. It is quite probable that
he had become insane with the terrible hardships which he had undergone. It seems to me that Inspector
Fitzgerald had concluded that these
men were too weak to travel; that he
left all equipment they had with
them and with Carter started towards Fort Macpherson, with the
hope of getting relief to send back.
This they failed to accomplish.
"About ten miles further on he
and Carter yielded up their lives.
Carter succumbed first, and he was
laid out by Inspector Fitzgerald, who
probably died shortly afterwards."
Tne report of Commissioner Perry,
who transmitted diaries and records
to the mounted police headquarters
at Ottawa, concludes that the party
had undertaken the trip with light
provisions wtih the view of making
a rapid passage. He says that Dempster's report shows that the unfortunate men had wasted to shadows.
All were powerful young men and in
tho best of health and courage when
they  left on  their  Ill-fated  journey.
Colonel Perry comments: "That
they should have lost their lives is
greatly to be deplored. It is the
greatbest tragedy that has occurred
In this force during Its existence oi
thirty-seven years. Their loss has
been felt most keenly by every member of the force, but we cannot but
feel a thrill of pride at the endeavor
they made to carry out their duty
and at their gallant struggle for
their lives."
• o	
Sees Death of Man Who Caused Exe
rution of Husband and
Two   Sons
VICTORIA—The attempt being
made by the city of Victoria to prevent the forthcoming race meet promoted by the Country Club, was
frustrated when Chief Justice Hunter at Vancouver dismissed the application of City Solicitor F. A. Mc-
Diarmid for an injunction restraining the Country Club from holding
the seven days' meet. The city based
its application on the ground that
the club had not complied with the
provisions of the bylaw, amended
last year, whereunder It is stipulated
that the club must make application
to the city for a permit before the
meet could be held. Mr. McDiarmid
argued that the club has not made
application for such a permit.
The Widow Talamantes, who took
the field as a Mexican insurrecto
commander after her husband and
two sons had been shot as rebels by
command of Colonel Chiapas, won in
full measure her revenge when the
man on whose head she had set the
price'of $20,000 gold, was shot to
death in her presence.
Colonel Chiapas was captured by
Mine. Talamantes' Indian soldiers
after a desperate ride he had made
on a fleet Arabian horse to overtake
the command of Colonel Diaz, which
had left him behind when Agua
Prieta was evacuated.
Desperately wounded by bullets
through his neck and arm, Colonel
Chiapas fell from his horse. Rolling over in pain he looked up
straight into the eyes of Widow Talamantes.
Whispering a few words into the
wounded man's ears that made his
pale face blanch whiter still, the
Widow Talamantes signalled to her
men and turned away. Colonel
Chiapas was picked up and carried
to a tent.
Just as the red rim of the sun
appeared over the eastern horizon
next morning, a woman's voice gave
a sharp command. There was a
quick roll of fire from a dozen rifles,
and a tottering figure standing on
the edge of a newly-made grave,
crumpled up, quivered and lay motionless on the edge of the trench.
One of the men of the firing squad
advanced and turned the body over
with his foot, saw that ten of the
bullets had found their mark, and
tumbled it over into the grave.
So the Widow Talamantes took revenge for the slaying of her husband
and two sons by Colonel Chiapas of
the  federal  army.
The pursuit, capture and execution
of Colonel Chiapas is the most dramatis incident of the M xican revolution.
Fashionable women who have delayed ordering their spring and summer supply of tihe puffs, rats, and
other mysterious paraphernalia with
which woman's natural supply of
hair is augmented,, face an embarrassing state of affairs. The reason
for this is the strike in Montreal of
the workers engaged in the making
of switches, transformations, and
similar aids to the hair dressers' art.
These employees demand an advance
in wages and claim that at the rates
they are now paid they are not even
able to equip themselves with a fair
supply of the artificial curls which
they turn out In such numbers for
their mere fortunate sisters, As
this city is the Canadian centre of
the artificial hair market, the dearth
in the supply of women's most widely used aids to nature is likely to
cause general distress unless the in
dignation of the feminine public
puts an early end to the present contest. Impracticable persons of the
male sex have suggested that the
present difficulty might be met by
using last season's styles, but the
horror with which this proposal was
received is convincing evidence that
if there is anything more useless
than a last year's bird nest, it must
be last year's rats and  curls.

The building up of a stable commercial centre in Prince Rupert necessitates the development of the
great empire which must be tributary to this place as a distributing
centre. The filling up of the farming section.-, the opening up of the
mining camps, the development of
the fishing banks and the exploitation of the many other related industries must all be considered in
connection with the building of a
city here. These are all woven together and the outlying sections are
just as essential to the welfare of
this place as the area embraced
within the bounds of the municipality.
Citizens must therefore never forget that the broadest spirit is necessary. They must be ready to lend
their aid to the whole of this northern district for all of it must enrich the city of Prince Rupert. The
people of the outlying sections must
learn to look to the business houses
of Prince Rupert to give them the
best of service. It is gratifying to
know that this exists. Local wholesale dealers have shown a readiness
to accommodate the merchants doing business here from outside
points in a way that means much to
these merchants. This has been in
evidence this spring with the opening up of the trade on the Skeena.
The storekeepers have found that by
dealing In Prince Rupert they have
profited far more than is represented alone by the saving in distance
They have found that during the
earlier weeks of navigation on the
river when all are so anxious to get
their freight through and when the
shipments mean so much, the local
wholesalers have personally inter
ested themselves in the movement of
the freight with good results.
As the spring opens up and the
representatives of the different
propositions which are to have their
headquarters in this part of the
province continue to arrive it becomes more and more evident that
this district is to be the home of
very diversified undertakings. Within the past week in addition to those
interested in the well-established
lines of mining there have been representatives of coal mining companies who have come to open up the
measures on the Queen Charlotte
Islands, those who are to drill for
petroleum on the islands, and those
who have in view the developing of
marble quarries on an island within
easy reach of the city and I hrough
which the irade will In the end pass.
There is room for the widest and
fullest development in this district.
It all means Ihe earlier establishment of permanent, business in the
city wiih he steadying effect which
must go with it. Prince Rupert is
not to be a one-industry city. It will
have a very wide variety of industries tributary to it either within
the bounds of the city or in the
area tributary to tho place. Such a
condition of affairs is one of the
best things that can come to a city.
It makes It a centre to be desired
by all moneyed Interests and steadies trade to a marked elegree.
The time is fast approaching when
the city of Prince Rupert will have
to take care of a large quota of tourists during the summer months.
The equable climate that prevails
here with all the attractions that go
with a trip into the new north is
going to make this place the summer home of thousands for months
at a time. It has become popular to
knock the climate of the city and
there will require to be a systematic
move to disabuse the popular idea in
this regard. The past two summers
following the opening up of the
townsite has convinced all who have
spent the summers here that in point
of climate the city of Prince Rupert
is well ahead of the city of Vancouver.
Within easy reach of the city are
most Interesting points, including
runs within full view of the glaciers
of Alaska. It will become the outfitting point for the big game hunters who are increasing in number
every year.
It does not require any particular
imagination for one to picture the
time in the very near future when
the harbor of Prince Rupert will be
crowded with yachts and pleasure
craft of all kinds which will be
needed to afford the visitors the opportunity to see all the attractive
water stretches within easy reach.
The beauties of the place have but
to be enhanced in small measure and
the attractions become known in order that the tourist trade may be

VANCOUVER — Beginning with
the next school term, following the
summer holidays, the public schools
of Vancouver will again have an official inspector, under the provincial
government. In the last provincial
estimates provision has been made
for the reinstatetnen tof the position,
both in this city and in Victoria.
Vancouver and Victoria formerly
had inspectors but with the growth
of the city nad the appointment of
school superintendents the work was
included in their department. Now,
with the still further growth of the
city and the schools, It is found
that an Inspector is again necessary.
The names of the appointees have
not yet been  announced.
VANCOUVER—An invitation has
been extended by the Dominion government to a representative group
of British newspaper men to visit
Canada during the coming summer.
They will visit the coast. It is the
intention of the government to give
the old country newspaper men a
right idea of the Dominion, and
bring them In contact with Canadians, and by this way obtain first
hand the Canadian point of view.
This trip should also mean much for
the development of a true Imperial
feeling. It i sexpected that the result of this trip will mean a crop of
articles appearing in August and
September, when British politics are
tranquil and when there is much
space to spare.
The advantages t<> he derived
from the fruit growing Industry is
something which ai present must appeal to residents of Prince Rupert,
In view of the prospects of the
Skeena Valley becoming one of the
greatest apple centres In the west.
It is acknowledged that the farther
nortli apples can be grown, the better the character of the fruit. This
is true of the fruit growing areas of
the east as well as of the west.
The Yakima Valley in Washington
has only come into prominence in
the past few years as a fruit producing district. Yet that valley now is
a source of immense wealth to the
state. The following press item indicates somewhat the revenue that Is
to be derived from a fruit section:
"Two thousand cars of apples will
be harvested in the Yakima Valley
this season, according to a statement
received by the Spokane Chamber of
Commerce from II. P. James, secretary of the Yakima Commercial Club
who compiled tbe figures from reports by growers and inspectors."
LYTTON—Three clergymen and
three laymen, bound for a simple
community life, with Qnesnell as
their centre, and from which, traveling in pairs, they will cover a circuit
of several hundred mi'es in Cariboo
and Chilcoten, with probably stations
at Barkerville, Soda Creek, Big
Creek, Fort George and 150 Mile
House, have started on their work.
They begin with tent life, will build
their own central home, cook their
own food and lake an active part
with the manual workers among
whom their lot is cast, meanwhile

Message. Canon Brooke, Incumbent
for more than a quarter of a century
of the beautiful Church of St. John

and temporarily, for the stipend of
the rector-in-charge of St. John's

Church, Kensington, has sent another clergyman and St. John's Church,
N'ewbery, Berks, yet another. Promises have been made, that, If carried
out, by the people of the districts
mentioned, will soon put the Cariboo
mission on a self-supporting basis.
Canon Brooke1, when out In Brilisb
Columbia some four years ago, saw
the great need of these isolated sections of Cariboo and Chilcole and
i learned with regret, that lack of
funds hud made it necessary for our
own diocese to withdraw workers al
ready there. He caught a vision of
greater opportunities of usefulness
and being, himself, beyond t.he three
score years of life, he has sent these
young, vjg-oroiia, enthusiastic men
to work out his desire for him under
the jurisdiction of the Right Rev

VICTORIA—R. Marpole, chief executive of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in the west, has returned
from Montreal with the information
that the Empress hotel is to be extended at once by the addition of a
new wing to be built on the foundations already laid at the southeast
corner of the building, to cost between $175,000 and $200,000
Mr. Marpole went east to discuss
the annual appropriations for the
year of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the west, with Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, and the fact that a
considerable sum of money would be
spent here was foreshadowed by
William Whyte, first vice-president
of the system, while here. On the
floor adjoining the palm room, it
is proposed to have a banqueting
and a ballroom to accommodate 450
people. The plans of the addition,
including the new feature, provide
for six stories, containing 70 bedrooms and writing and reception
rooms, and when complete the hotel
will have an accommodation capacity
og 350 bedrooms. The architecture
will be the same as the present

VICTORIA—The law prohibiting
the admission of undesirable aliens
into Canada has had a new Interpretation put upon it hy the immigration officials, which if enforced
will make the Dominion a good place
for crooks who manage to make
their get-away. A good illustration
Of the manner in which this will
work out is offered by the case of
Frank Kroll, late an employee of the
city, who stole a quantity of household furniture which he disposed of,
and tied to Seattle with the proceeds
of his crime. Ho was arrested by
tbe Seattle police at the request of
the local police, who proceeded to
arrange for bis return. The immigration service here stepped in,
however, and declared that Kroll, as
an undesirable alien, will not be permitted to land on Canadian soil,
which has the effect of completely
blocking all chance of bringing Kroll
to trial. This Is the first time such
a construction has been put on the
regulations, and the police are asking if the ruling will be enforced In
all cases.
Almost   Anything   Was     Money     In
Canada Once—Expense in Eliminating American Silver
In a lecture at the Canadian Insti-
tue, Toronto, on "The History of
Canadian Metallic Currency," Prof.
Adam Shortt of the Civil Service
Commission, gave some interesting
information. Mr. J. B. Tyrell, president of the society, was In the chair.
Copper coinage, Prof. Shortt said,
was very meagre In Canada In 1S25,
and even brass buttons were recog-

nized as tender. In fact so many
scraps of value were used as coppers that it became an intolerable
nuisance, and in 1830 a number of
Canadian banks issued copper bank
tokens. About this time $10,000 of
American five and ten-cent pieces
were brought into Canada, and this
no doubt helped to popularize the
American specie.
In 1830 and 1S37 the United
States introduced the gold dollar,
and issued shin plasters at 25, 20
and 10 cents, and even as low as two
In lower Canada at this time
French money was most commonly
uesd, while in Upper Canada English currency predominated. No Canadian silver money had been issued,
and money from all parts of the
world was freely circulated throughout the Dominion, so that now, the
speaker said, Canada is recognized
as the richest collection ground in
the world for old coins.
This mixture of the money of so
many different countries became objectionable, and an agitation was
started for the use of one kind. The
British Government advocated the
adoption of English money but Canada thought the American system
the best. This carried alarm In
England, as it was thought that the
adoption by Canada of the American
system would ultimately lead to annexation with the United States.
At last, through the efforts of Sir
Francis Hincks, one of the leading
Canadian statesmen of the day, the
British Government became convinced that the decimal system
would be suited for Canada, but desired to have British coins made in
small amounts instead of Canada
adoptln gthe American standard.
January 4, 1854, marks the day
when Canada received her first consignment of decimal coinage from
the British mint. It consisted of
,.100,000 in twenty-cent pieces, $75,-
000 in ten-cent pieces and $50,000 In
one-cent pieces. Some surprise was
expressed that no twenty-five cent
coin was issued, but the British shilling was Intended to take Its place,
and this required the shilling to be
somewhat overrated.
Great quantities of American silver money had been sent into Canada to bu supplleys for the Civil War
and In 1870 the Canadian    Govern-

ment spent $118 000 in getting $5,-
000,000 of it returned to the States.
The making of the Canadian coins
became very profitable to the British
mint, and Canada was given a share
In the profits. At last, however, the
Canadian Government came to the
conclusion that it would pay Canada
lo have a mint of her own, and a
mine at Ottawa was established.
It was owing to the great profits
In making her own silver money
that Canada went to such an expense
to rid the country of American silver
in 1870.
Cable despatches show that Miss
Violet Pooley, of Victoria, daughter
of Hon. E. C. Pooley, formerly
speaker of the Legislature, has done
remarkably well in the British National Golf Tournament which has
been in progress this week at Port-
rush, Ireland. She successfully
fought her way Into the fifth round
and into the last sixteen players left
to compete for the trophy. This Is
a highly creditable achievement on
the occasion of Miss Pooley's first
attempt. She had to meet some of
the best lady players In the world,
and was only defeated by the redoubtable Miss Thompson.

appears that nothing as yet has been
definitely settled as to any actual
points where the construction of war
ships for the new Canadian navy will
be undertaken. The only fact definitely known n this connection is
that all the firms which tendered on
the ships did so with the intention of
establishing plants on the Atlantic
Coast of Canada.
The new steamer Prince John, formerly the Amethyst, bought by the
Grand Trunk Pacific Company for
the northern coasting service, left
the Clyde on Saturday in command
of Captain M. A. Davis, who brought
out the steamer Prince Rupert for
the company from the yards of the
builders, at Newcastle-on-Tyne. It
is expected the Prince John will arrive in Victoria by way of the usual
coaling ports about the end of July.
The steamer will relieve the Prince
Albert on the Prince Rupert, Naas,
Stewart and Queen Charlotte Island
route, and the Prince Albert will be
placed in a regular freighting service
between Victoria, Vancouver and
Prince Rupert.
The Prince John was built last
year, by Messrs. Scott & Sons, of
Bowling, Eng., for Mr. W. Robertson. Her dimensions are: Length,
185 feet; beam, 29.6 feet; depth,
10.9 feet. The gross tonnage is 662
tons, and she has a net register of
446 tons. The new steamer is provided with passenger accommodation
and was equipped with wireless telegraphic apparatus before sailing.
Bound for a treasure hunt in
southern seas, the steam schooner
Eureka has sailed out of Los Angeles harbor with a picked crew of
sixteen men and Captain Burtis at
the helm. The announced destination of the vessel is Amapala, Honduras, but the men who make up
her crew- say that the helm is set
for the coast of Salvador. The sailors were picked for strength and
courage and those who admitted
they might be afraid of risking
their lives were excused from signing. They receive 20 per cent more
than the usual seamen's wage. The
vessel was outfitted by J. C. Mellon,
a Los Angeles capitalist, and two
Before leaving for London Hon.
L. P. Brodeur, minister of marine,
stated that there was a possibility of
Montreal being selected as the site
for the building of the ships for the
Canadian navy. "If," he said, "a responsible firm would establish there,
which would take on the building
of the necessary ships there could be
reason why they should not be
built in Montreal."
Montreal is to have a drydock,
with u lifting capacity of 25,000
tons. The cost of the dock will be
$3,500,000. The subsidy to be paid
to the contracting firm by the Dominion Government will be at the
rate of 3% per cent for 38 years.
The contract for building the dry-
dock has been awarded to Messrs.
Vickers Son & Maxim.
From Mr. Brodeur's statements it
The launch Christine, a 15-horse-
power gasoline craft, with five tons
of provisions, mostly vegetables and
fruit, was wrecked in the Thirty-
mile River, on Thursday, the 11th,
the two men who owned and manned
her, J. J. Hovd, and Fred F. Hess,
both of Tacoma, Wash., barely escaping with their lives.
The boat was sidewise In the current when her keel struck a rock,
the water being very low, and being
top-heavy with cargo, she upset and
sank. The men escaped by swimming to the shore and later managed
to rescue a small portion of the
cargo, selling the salvage for $100
to some wood cutter on the river and
coming back to this place. Heartsick and discouraged, the unfortunate men have left for their homes In
Taooma. The boat and cargo were
both shipped to this place from

At tile Festival of Empire in London,
Scenes Connected with the Rising May Be Put on
Although the announcement has
not yet been made public, I am able
to state that the request will shortly
be made through the Canadian committee of the Festival of Empire, for
tlie participation in the festival of
that fine body of veterans who
helped to quell the Riel regelllon in
1885, says a  London  correspondent.
"The roll call of that gallant band
has sadly diminished," said the Canadian member of the committee,
who suggested the Idea, "but the
surviving members of those vigorous
fighters from six provinces will make
a fairly strong muster, if we can Induce them to come. Of course their
positions are now far different from
that In the days of Louis Rlel; then
they were ranchers, now many of
them are captains of Industrial armies, and others are prominent In
the political and financial world. The
Canadian regiments who fought the
campaign were the Winnipeg Rifles,
Winnipeg Light Infantry, Queen's
Own Rifles, Montreal Garrison Artillery, Montreal Royal Carbineers,
the Mldlanders, Royal Grenadiers,
York and Slmcoe Battalion, London
Fusileers, Quebec Voltigeurs, Halifax Fusiliers and the Royal Northwest Mounted Police.
"One of the really remarkable
things about the festival is the willingness of prominent Canadians to
take active part in the Canadian
scenes. Our appeal for help Ip this
respect has elicited a magnificent
response and many men prominent
in public life and women of the
proudest Canadian families will depict to a world-wide British audience the hardships suffered by the
United Empire loyalists over two
hundred years ago. It Is expected
that Lord Strathcona will oonsent to

Portugal in Difficulties
Portugal   has  finished    with    its
historic monarchical system,    li wa
tired of it, anil of the political ways
which had come te> encrusl It, as barnacles  gather   on   the  hulk     eif    a
stranded ship.    King    Carlos    was a
strong man.  little in  touch  with  his
people.     His  eldest  son,  the  Crown
Prince, was a young man of courage

A woman in authority   has  to  depend  largely   on   those
about  her;   she  cannot,  even  if  she
wanted, break through  the    golden
ring of courtiers.    That gives    well-
organized  forces their    chance,    as
against  the scattered public opinion
of a people, and the church and the
priests got an undue hand of favors.
The iron rule of Senhor Franca, who
is now in retreat in Spain, also left
its dent on public opinion, and so the
gulf  between   tho  royal     house     of
Braganza and  Portugal widened until they simply fell away from each
"Everybody wanted the republic,
and it. came," said an onlooking authority; "the Braganzas simply toppled over like a wornout house of
cards. The hour of full ripeness
arrived,'and it disappeared; in fact,
almost ran away. There was no
great, active force behind the revolution, I mean no organization worth
talking about—just this ripeness of
which I have spoken. It succeeded
in itself, because there was nobody
to say nay. Now, if Dom Carlos had
been alive, or if there had been a
bold descent of the monarchists from
the north, the republic would probably not have come into being.
Young King Manuel could give no
lead to his cause, his uncle, Dom
Alfonso, succeeded in giving none,
and ladies, royal or not, are pretty
helpless when guns begin to shoot.
Yes, a grown-up strong king or a
strong lead, and the Braganzas
might still be In their palaces at
Lisbon. One man alone, Pavia Cou-
eeiro, who, please note, is English
on his mother's side, made a royal
.-land for the royal house, and today,
an exile in Spain, he has the respect
of all Portugal for his courage. If
he were to lead an counter revolt
one clay there might be trouble, be-
cause he stands for courage and
character, and because, as always
happens, shortcomings have accumulated against the government in office. But he is loo patriotic a Portuguese to engineer trouble for his
country, even if he does not agree
with events."
The Boy King
It comes to this that, overwhelmingly, the Portuguese, who are a
democratic people by instint and
usage, have accepted the republican
system of government, and that even
the dissentients are disposed to acquiesce, if affairs go well—acquiesce
assuredly to the extent of not calling
back the Braganzas.
"Apparently," a very capable and
Intimate observer said, "the situation Is going to resolve itself Into a
financial problem. Continued bad
weather has spoiled the prospects of
the vintage and of the wheat harvest, two of the main standbys of
Portugal. The financial situation
was sufficiently Involved without
this, as the expenses of the country
under ihe new order of government
have Increased rather than decreased, while the sources of revenue, us compared with previous
years, have not Increased. There Is
no doubt that a great deal of dissatisfaction with the government exists,
owing to the continuation of what
In effect, is a dictatorship and the
delay In holding th,. elections, which
are now fixed for May 28. It is t.o
be feared that when they do take
place they will he no freer, from tlie
people's point of view, than elections
held under tin- monarchy were. It
is impossible, with the treason decree, for any monarchist to make
any sort of propaganda In support or
his views and candidature. He can
onl ystand as an Independent candidate, which means the elimination
from the contest of the monarchical
Idea altogether. So far as one can
make out, the aim of the existing
government   is  to crush  all   opposi
tion, and that makes it, in essence,
an absolute despotism. It won i
have anything against its views, and
a groat many monarchists have left
the country. The government has
not. 1 judge, been afraid of their
conspiring against the republic, but
has wished to remove their influence
from the country during the elections In the majority of instances
they have not actually been expelled,
but they have been told that if they
remained in Portugal the authorities
eeeulel not be responsible for their
safety. This, of course, has resulted
in tlfb withdrawal of a good deal of
money from iho country, and thai is
being felt ley the shopkecping
The Monarchist Position
"As to the prospects of a counter
revolution," this English observer of
men and affairs in the new Portugal, went on, "I think it quite possible that something may be attempted, Tho monarchists have
money behind them, but it is more
difficult f.or them to organize or
combine. Unless the bulk of the
army is prepared to join them—at
any rate, the artillery—their chance
of success is poor. Coming to another point it should be said that
the feeling of the Republican government towards Great Britain is
very friendly. It is an earnest of
this that preliminary steps are being
taken 'o negotiate a new commercial
treaty between the two countries, a
thing which is badly needed. As
may be remembered the old treaty
of 1842 was denounced by Portugal
a number of years ago when England issued an ultimatum in reference to a matter of serious difference in Africa; denounced by an
angry Portugal, which today, as a
republic, is wishful of a new commercial treaty, to fill the vacant
place. Also it is significant of the
relationship between English and
Portuguese interests that in Portugal steps are being taken for the establishment of a British Chamber of
Commerce. Those particular evidences of Anglo-Portuguese good will
and mutual interest are both acceptable and hopeful and on the subject
of the larger outlook I have only a
single word to add. Should the
present regime in Portugal fail, owing to its difficulties of finance, such
might result in some form of inter-
national intervention, which, from
the British point of view, is Io be
deprecated as likely to lead to European complications of a rather serious nature."
This particular summing up of the
situation in Portugal is given for its
conciseness and grip. The truth is
that a vague uncertainty, approaching almost anxiety, exists in Portugal. Something is going to happen!
Something is actually happening!
Certainly something must happen
one day before long. The average
man and woman is in a state of exclamation, yet the exclamation lis
not uttered out aloud in public
places. There is constraint, affairs
have not found a stable resting
place, the political welkin trembles
a litte. Outwardly busy Oporto and
beautiful Lisbon are as peaceful and
settled as you like. A warship lies
near the mouth of the Douro, but
the government only sent it to greet
the loyal citizens of Oporto! The
Avenida da Liberdale of Lisbon is
alive of an afternoon with folk taking the sun and air, with carriages
and an occasional motor car. On
her historic hills Lisbon sits smiling
as she has smiled since the Romans
and the Moors were there. Peace,
perfect peace, peace and the beauty
of early summer sits enthroned, but
on the English steamer you see
charming Portuguese people who are
going to England because it is such
a change, you know—and for the
Coronation! Yes, the omens are
whispering behind the daylight in
Portugal! whispering that no man—
not even Women, with their further-
flung instinct—can take the precise
measure of the hour and the day.
No Millenium Yet
Perhaps all this was inevitable
where you have a swift passage—
revolution on velvet as it was—from
a monarchy, ancient and proud, to a
democracy which has ripened beside
ind outside that monarchy. The
millenium was to come with a republic, and it still hesitates to possess
the banks of the Tagus. There were
promises—and they have been getting home to roost. "Baca !iau," the
dried cod fish, which is a staple diet
In poorer Portugal, was to be cheaper. It is fished for in the seas of
"Norroway over the faem," and elsewhere by the hardy Portuguese fishermen, but It has not. yet fallen in
price. Are wine and bread cheaper?
You cannot work miracles in a brief
six months, but a simple people ask
Appeals to people of discriminating taste because of
its superb Quality and Purity—no matter if you
drink it in Canada or in its St. Louis home town—
it always has the same snappy flavor—its in a class by
Bottled only at the
Anheuser-Busch Brewery
why you cannot. "All, yes," said
Portuguese women, "some of our
husbands may die in bringing the
glorious revolution, but those of us
left widows will at least have pensions as large as our husband's earnings were." The working week In
Portugal has been shortened, shortened, rightly shortened, by law to
six days, for does the Bible, which
is the first and last teacher of political economy, not declare, "Six days
shalt thou labor?" Still, the simple
Portuguese worker is beginning to
say, "Yes, but I am making much
less, and it costs me no less to support my wife and family. W have a
Sunday rest, which formerly we
hadn't, but how to make ends
meet?" I heard of a sailor man of
the navy who harangued an audience in one of Lisbon's squares, saying, "I was to get better pay when
the republic came. The republic
has been here for months, but no
better pay. What of that?"
Expectation, Realization
Performance is knocking at the
republican door, demanding that all
promises made, or fancied by a plain
folk to have been made, shall be redeemed In hard fact—yea, in meat
and drink. Time is needed for progress, even in the little things of a
nation; time, understanding, forbearance and co-operation. There
was the extravagance of a monarchy
to support, and the repjublic would
get rid of that. Now, ministers ride
in the royal motor cars, as why
should they not, because to busy
men that means a gaining of time.
The holdin gof more than one public-
office by a man was to be abolished,
but lo and behold, the salary attached to the average Portuguese
public office is so small that it
won't keep a capable man in being,
and the capable men must be continued anyhow if the machine of
state is going lo work satisfactorily.
Portugal is a study in anticipation
and realization, with an entirely
honest, well-meaning government
struggling to reconcile the two.
Everybody says the republican cabinet is well-meaning, correct in its
ways and means, but nearly everybody adds that its task is positively
gigantic. Can it solve that task—
solve it in time?

Very Active Steps to be Taken in the
Northern Interior to Open
Up Nines.
Considerable Money Is to Be Spent
There This Season by Interested Company
The announcement of plans by the
British Columbia. Anthracite Coal
Company for the development of
their vast coal measures at Groundhog Mountain, on the upper Skeena,
is a complete surprise to even those
who were expecting a summer of
great activity, says the Omineca Herald. No less than $100,000 will be
spent by this company this year.
Fifty thousand dollars is to go toward proving the worth and extent
of the coal seams and the balance In
railway surveys and exploratory-
work. The company owns the charter for the Naas and Skeena Rivers
Railway Company, granted at the
last session of the legislative assembly, and three survey parties are to
take the field about June.
A pack train of about sixty or
seventy anomals will be kept busy
packing supplies from Hazelton,
which will be the outfitting point for
all operations except the one survey
part ywhich will work inland from
a point in. the vicinity of the mouth
of Naas River.
Leon Benoit, of Winnipeg, is the
moving spirit in this new and vast
enterprise and will be remembered
by most local people through his
viBit here last summer.
The expenditure of this huge sum
this year and other huge sums for
several years to come, for all of
which this will be the outfitting
point, means much in itself, but little as compared with the great
quickening it will give the country
of the upper Skeena, where It is now
a foregone conclusion a railway is
shortly to be built.
R. C. Campbell-Johnson, mining
engineer for the company, will arrive in Hazelton in a short time to
spent the summer in the coal fields.
He investigated the properties in the
first instance for the holders.
Manager   of    Syndicate   Conducting
Operations ill the Nortli Tells
of Conditions
H. E. Bodine, manager for a syndicate which has been conducting
operations in the pracer country on
Omineca River for two years, was in
town this week and gave the following interesting account of the progress of work to date, says the Omineca  Herald.
"We have drilled sufficient holes
to warrant putting in one dredge.
This season will finish the drilling
of the upper part of Silver Creek.
Then we will drill on the south
fork where we have two miles of
leases on Silver Creek and Dream
Creek. We will also drill on Tom
Creek for the purpose of ascertaining the whereabouts of a channel
running into the hill at the Tom
Creek cabin where work was left off
by James J. May, in view of installing a hydraulic plant.
"Last year we drilled on Kenny
Creek from the first lake down to
its confluence with Silver Creek
and found an encouraging prospect
down to the depth -of sixty-two feet.
We have drilled one mile of Silver
Creek, including the south fork,
which proved to have enough values
to warrant dredging operations
when transportation facilities are
more favorable.
••Under present conditions — we
are using an Empire drill which
gives excellent results—we are removing all element of chance from
the results obtained. Just so much
core is taken out and there is no
chance for water to wash additional
values Into the core and there is no
chance for any value to get away.
It is a straight business proposition.
When we are through drilling a
block of ground we know the depth
of gravel and what it contains. We
also know what It will cost to work
the  ground.
"Although favorable propositions
have been uncovered on Silver Creek
by drilling, it is not a poor man's
proposition. It requires plenty of
capital as the ground now being
drilled is proving deeper than was
expected by the old-time prospectors,
so there is no encouragement, for a
poor man to come into the country."
Mr. Bodine and his party came up
the river last March, bringing the
core drill and outfit by dog team.
One drill was taken in last year by
way of Stuart Lake, but consldera-

in British Columbia
He     Anticipates   a   Decided     Rush
When the Full Value Is Realized  by Miners
"The Canadian diamond has been
tested by the greatest gem experts
in the world and pronounced equal
in quality to the famous product of
South Africa," says R. A. A. Johnston, mineralogist and curator of
the geological survey, at Ottawa.
In January last diamonds were discovered in the Olivene Mountains, in
cue Tulameen country. This was the
first discovery of the kind made in
Canada, and Mr. Johnston noturally
became greatly interested, and sent
for specimens of the glittering gems.
The discovery soon became noised
about, and other mineralogists in
various parts of the world also became Interested.
Among those in whom the discovery awakened a keen interest
was Dr. Kunz, the Tiffany gem expert and one of the foremost American authorities on precious stones.
He wrote Mr. Johnston from New
York and asked him to send specimens of the British Columbia diamonds for the purpose of having
them tested. Instead of sending
specimens, Mr. Johnston went to
New York himself and took a
quantity of the gems with him.
"Dr. Kunz and others were greatly surprised at the beauty of the
Canadian diamond, and they are
now enthusiastically singing its
praises," says the Ottawa expert.
"Dr. Kunz made tests with radium
in a dark room. The Canadian diamond was placea alongside the
South African product and showed
itself to be its equal.    It phospore-
ble difficulty was    encountered    in
getting to the property.
Several outfits are operating in
the old placer fields of Omineca
River and its creeks, and there is

scced the same as any well ordered
diamond  should.
"This particular occurrence is regarded as likely to throw more light
on the origin of the diamond than
any other occurrence elsewhere. We
have been searching through the
rock, and with the aid of microscopic
sMdes have been able to see the diamond in the rock. This is the first
occasion on which this has been
While in New York, Mr. Johnston
gave an address on the Canadian
diamond before the New York Min-
eralogical Club at the American Museum of Natural History. He exhibited the diamond and all were enthusiastic as to it.
Mr. Johnston stated that prospectors are likely to enter the new diamond fields in great numbers as
soon as the snow in the mountains
"The quality of the diamond is beyond dispute," says Mr. Johnston.
"The only uncertain thing about It
now is the size."

Prices of the Precious Metal of tlie

up in Price
The prices of platinum are soaring. Recently, hard platinum
reached the record price per ounce
of $43, whilst the soft metal touched
Six years ago the pure metal was
selling at $18.50 per ounce. Through
the year 1906 the price of hard went
up to $40. The market now declined
until in August, 1908, prices had
fallen to  $20.
Soon aftr this the rise commenced
and has continued until the present.
Within the last six months the advance has been most pronounced,
amounting to practically $10.
One incidental cause of enhanced
prices, says the Canadian Mining
Journal, is the growing use of platinum In manufacturing jewelry. Another is the demand for the metal
in making tips for the sparking
plugs of automobiles. But probably
the main fastor is the closer control

English  Company  Will Start Undertaking on  Pitt Meadows
Mr. George Edwards, a well-
known chartered accountant, located
in the City of Mexico, was in Montreal last week en route for Scotland, where he will spend part of the
summer. Speaking about the condition of that country, Mr. Edwards
"Mexico is attracting much attention on account of interior disturbances, or the so-called revolution,
brought about by the re-election of
President Diaz. If it is true that
General Diaz intends to actually resign, the revolution should soon end.
Ramon Corral, slated for president,
in the event of General Diaz's retirement, has become very unpopular
for various reasons, but principally
on account of the fact of his association with a group of men called the
'partido cientifico' or scientific
clique. This so-called scientific
clique is a body of men who have
used their influence and capital to
exploit such enterprises as banks,
railways, etc., and in the opinion of
the public, largely for their personal
benefit and have therefore become
very unpopular.
"In spite of disturbances, however, Mexico has to go ahead, the
reourc.es of the country being practically inexhaustible as regards mineral wealth, water power, agriculture, etc. Mexico has come in for
a great deal of attention from Canada. Some of the largest corporations they have operating down
there are financed and managed by
Canadian capitalists, as, for instance,
the Mexican Light and Power Company and the Mexican street railways. Canadian banks have opened
branches there. The Royal Bank
and the Bank of Montreal have
branches there, while last fall the
Canadian Bank of Commerce also
opened up a branch in the City of
Mexico, and have met with unqualified success. They have a very
capable manager in Mr. John P.
Bell, who was for some years in
their Winnipeg and Toronto offices,
and very shortly the question of enlarging their present premises and
opening up additional branches will
come • 11• for consideration, on account of their rapidly increasing
"Other Mexico enterprises financed
by Canadians include the Mexican
Northern Power Company and Mexico Northwestern Railway. Canadians have also turned their eyes toward developing the natural resources of the country in the line of
mines, lumber and rubber. , In this
last connection, a Canadian rubber
company was formed last year largely by Montrealers, under the name
of the Mexican Mahogany and Rubber Corporation, Limited. They
have an Imensetract of land in the
southern part of Mexico, in the State
of Chiapas, which is perhaps one of
the finest mahogany limits on the
American continent, and which produces what is commercially known
as tobasco    mahogany.    Judging by
An English company, with a Vancouver ooard of directois, with a
capital of $20,000,000 is reported
to be about to start and carry on
business at Pitt Maedows.
The object of the company is to
acquire large ore and coal lands, the
latter on Vancouver Island, and a
site on which the necessary works
will be erected. Blast and open
hearth steel furnaces, and rolling
mills are to be part of the plant.
Mr. William Owen, M. E., of London,
England, has been in the city for
some weeks looking into the
different propositions, and arrangements were ultimately completed
yesterday morning.
The site selected consists of a
block of 200 acres bordering on Pitt

is in close contact. It is opposite

The company will be an English
one, registered in Canada, and with

board in i.ondon.
The plant and machinery are to

consist of blast furnaces, open
hearth steel furnaces and rolling
mills on a very large scale, and
there will also be foundry and engineering shops for renewals and repairs. At least 3,000 men are to be
The full capacity of the works will
be 1,000 tons a day, and the company calculate on 250,000 tons a
year in finished products. This conservative estimate would still, at the
start, leave easy room for an additional 50,000 tons.
The whole proposition is one
which will make for gigantic developments in this part of the province,
and the advantages it will have are
easily apparent.

completed the detail matters yet outstanding, leaves for England at the
end of the month. He would like It

way from the Antipodes for (lie
work. The wharf is to be extended
thirty feet further in James Bay
and it will be lengthened by 240
feet, making a total length of over
600  feet.
It may seem to the casual reader
obviously a joke for one to speak of
protecting apple trees from the nip
of the frost king by means of little
individual stoves, but this is just
what advanced orchard science is doing—and doing successfully, as the
results of experiments in the Armstrong district, just reported to the
department of agriculture, attest.
Messrs. Freeze and Sharpe are there
in charge of the introduction of heat
pots, which are placed at the foot
of each tree, and in one Armstrong
orchard they have upwards of a hundred of the tiny stoves at work.
As a result during one exceptionally
cold day last week, when three degrees of frost was reported, with the
trees all in blossom, the one heated
orchard came through without mishap—while all its neighbors suffered. The orchard stove is far from
a new idea in California, but in British Columbia, it is both an innovation and still regarded as a prize
discovery by  the bucolic humorists.

conference to be held shortly at
Washington between the delegates
of the four countries, America, England Russia and Japan, and that our
authorities were prepared to subscribe to the resolution to be passed
at, the conference for restricting the
capture of seals. Otherwise the Issue of such a notice and In such an
abrupt way is unaccountable, it says
and then proceeds to review the
progress of this industry in Japan
since the putting into effect of the
pelagic fishery bounty law In 1898.
At that time tlie sealing craft under
license were a mere handful, but today they number over 40, with the
capture of exceeding 10,000 skins.
This is the second largest in the
latest returns of the four countries
interested in the Berilg Sea sealing America heading the list with
15,000 while England and Russia
are credited with about 5,000 each.
To have to subject such activity to a
check so abruptly Is regarded by the
jourmnal with extreme regret, and

will be recalled, continues the journal, that when the first conference
was held at Washington in 1897,
Japan siding with England, declined to fall in with the proposal
coming from both America and Russia, but England has subsequently
taken steps conformable to the desire of the two countries, so that
Japan now finds herself isolated. It
is of course premature to form any
definite judgment as to the result
of the conference that is about to be
held, but the Shogyo fears that from
the extraordinary step which our authorities have already adopted they
will probably bow to the proposal of
the three countries for restricting
the hunting. Our delegate and also
foreign authorities are warned by
the journal not to be too ready to
sacrifice our important interests."
