GRANT NO LICENSES
Commissioners Decide That All Applications are out of Order and   .
Refuse to Act
Complaint Against  Hotel  Heard, bill
No   Evidence   to   Convict—
Warning Given
At the meeting of the license
commissioners on Tuesday afternoon, there was a full board present, Mayor Manson, Aid. Smith and
Commissioner Merryfield. The bottle license applications were all
dropped as they did not comply
with the act. The application for a
hotel license for the Savoy Hotel
was likewise not acted upon on the
advice of Solicitor Bennett, acting
for the city, that the bylaw would
be violated should the license be
granted. Mr. Ashland, of the
Windsor Hotel, was given a severe
reprimand with respect to the conduct of his hotel and warned that
if any evidence of violation of the
law was produced he would be
would be dealt with severely. The
proprietor of the Knox Hotel, on the
charges laid against his house, appeared to hear the decision of the
board. It was stated that the evidence did not convict the house and
no action was taken. He was
warned, however, to be very careful
in his conduct of the place.
Proceeding to business, His Worship said tlie applications for bottle
licenses had been allowed to stand
over in order to allow applicants to
look into the matter of whether
these were in order.
Not in Order
W. E. Fisher, representing
Brown, Austin, Sutherland and
Hunt, said that in each case they
were satisfied the law had not been
complied with and he would ask
tnat no action be taken on them.
It was announced that Mr. Levy's
application also was not in order.
The board, therefore, refused to
consider these as not having complied with the act.
A. .1. Prudboninie's application
for a renewal and also for a new license was next  taken up.
His Worship said that he understood that last year the board refused to consider the application
for a renewal. The board would,
therefore, deal only with the new
application. It appeared to him that
Section 7 of the bylaw barred the
commissioners from dealing with
the application, owing to the fact
that the bar was within 300 feet of
the  Baptist Church.
Mr. Prudhomme contended that
the place was not used exclusively
as a church. He further agreed
that the provincial statute would
govern in this in as far as it specified how tne measurement was to
be made in reaching the distance.
Measured according to the travelled |
roadway, the distance was over 600 |
feet. The building was being used
in part as a residence and not as a
church exclusively.
His Worship pointed out that the
section of the provincial act read
was one that did not apply to Incorporated cities.
Mr. Prudhomme said these sections did not conflict. He onlv
wished to apply the mode of measurement.
Took Evidence
Mr. Lindeberg, being called as a
witness, testified to living in the
upper part of the building in which
the Baptist Church was situated.
He was a part owner of the building.
In reply to Commissioner Merryfield, witness said be rented only
the downstairs to the church.
Mr. Humble, part owner of the
building, testified to the downstairs
only, being rented to the church.
In reply to Aid. Smith, witness
said the lease expired in July.
C. V. Bennettls opinion being
asked said that, the nearest point of
the hotel was clearly the Intent of
the bylaw. As to the definition of
a church It was clear to him that
the building referred to was a
church. It was the place of worship for the Baptists and exclusively used for that purpose. It might
be a coincidence that Mr. Lindberg
took up quarters In the building
Just three weeks before this.
Mr. Prudhomme said he had
nothing to do with Mr. LIndberg'B
action.
Wns  a  Clinrch
His Worship said  It now  became
a question whether the board
should decide this application now
on its merits or be governed by the
opinion   expressed   by   the   solicitor.
Mr. Bennett, in reply to a question of Mr. Prudhomme as to
whether this' could be regarded as,
exclusively a church, the solicitor
said the' evidence produced did not
upset the view expressed. The
building, the main portion of it at
least, was used as a place of worship. It was labelled the Baptist
Church and so used. It was In use
as such before application was made
for the  hotel  license.
Commissioner Merryfield moved
that the application, in view of the
opinion expressed by the solicitor,
should not be taken into consideration.
Commissioner Smith seconded
this which was carried.
His Worship said that Aid. Clayton had the evening before made a
complaint before the council that
there had been an apparent violation of the law in the case of the
hotel conducted by Mr. Ashland.
He asked that the chief of police
state what  he knew of the case.
Chief Vickers said that, in company with Aid. Aid. Clayton, he had
passed the premises on Sunday
night. He could see two men, who
had the appearance of Deing bartenders, enter and re-enter the bar.
They appeared to be serving liquor
on trays. He had no positive evidence that they were not serving
liquor to travellers. He, however,
believed they were not. It was useless for him to enter at the time to
get evidence for then there would
have been nothing doing.
Aid. Clayton was asked if he had
anything to supplement what had
been said. He said that as one who
took an active part in opposing the
Scott act and in advocating an extension of one hour in the evening
during which bars could be kept
open he would like to say that he
believed in seeing the law properly
enforced. He would not sanction
any violation of the law, however,
and thought licensees should be
taught a lesson. He had, while visiting a friend on Sunday afternoon,
seen liquor being served from the
barroom being carried out by attendants. He could not say positively that he liquor had not been
served at meals. He was satisfied
in his own mind it was not so
served, however.
Mr. Ashland was asked if he had
anything to say in the matter.
Mr. Ashland said that every Sunday he cleaned up the bar. There
were sometimes several men in. He
also served liquor at the table which
was within his rights. He did not
sell  liquor  contrary  to  law.
Under questions from the mayor
he said he served only at meals.   He

IMPERIAL SPIRIT
At Conference This Year Overseas Representation in Councils Will be
Prominent
Largely     Signed     Petition    Dealing
with  Subject Presented  to
Premier Asquith
(Special to The Journal) *
LONDON, March 31.—Three hundred members of parliament have
signed a petition to Premier Asquith urging the close association of
the Overseas Dominions in the conduct of Imperial affairs. Indications
point to the question of Overseas
representation in tlie imperial councils will bebrought prominently to
the front in the imperial conference
this year.
McBrlde's Views
VICTORIA, March 31.—The London cable, referring to the presentation of a petition urging closer union with the mother land of the
overseas Dominions in the administration of Empire affairs, has been
read nowhere with keener interest
or warmer approval, perhaps, than
by Premier McBride. "It must be a
matter of the greatest pleasure to
the Imperialists in Canada, and this
should include the entire population
of the Dominion," said Mr. McBride,
"to find that so many active and Influential members of the Imperial
House have now determined upon a
move that should end In something
tangible being done in the direction
of Imperial  federation."

Beds   Have   Arrived  —  Government
Will   lie  Asked   to  Make
Refund of Duty
The, hospital board met on Wednesday in tlie court house with the
president, D. G. Stewart, In the
chair.
The beds having arrived, it was
decide to have the duty, freight,
etc., paid and the goods delivered.
An effort will be made to see if the
Dominion authorities will not refund the duty on these in view of
the use to which they are being put.
The beds are from  England.
The resignation of the cook, Mrs.
Johnston,  was accepted.
The receipts from the drawing in
the Prince Rupert Club debenture
were given as $400.
On motion of the president, a very
hearty vote of thanks was accorded
Mr. Palmer, the president taking occasion to dwell upon the splendid
service Mr. Palmer had given. He
had acted alone in the matter and
had shown a spirit that might well
be emulated by other members of
the  board.
A donation of $35 was received
with thanks from A. J. Morris. The
sum represented the amount left
over in 1009 from a contribution
made by citizens to provide Christmas cheer for those In the Foley,
Welch &  Stewart hospital.
The new books having arrived it
was decided to have Mr. Cuthbert
the honorary secretary, assist in
opening these. It was decided to
have the existing books closed by
the end of the month, an audit
made and the new ones opened for
April 1.
Hearty votes of thanks to Mr.
Manson and to the provincial secretary were passed for their kindness
in connection with the books.
It was decided to hold the next
meeting of the board In the hospital.

Ontario Government Will Receive Large
Revenue From New Tax
Imposed
Hotel  Men  Threaten  to  Raise     the
Price of  Drinks  in  Consequence
(Special to The Journal)
TORONTO, March 31.—Local hotel men estimate that the Ontario
government will receive about
$150,000 additional revenue annually from the hotels by the tax upon
the bar receipts.
Toronto will contribute about
$82,000. The price of drinks is to
be  raised,  the  hotel  men  say.
The new law requires the bars to
pay a percentage of the revenue of
the bars when the amount exceeds a
fixed sum. Only the large hotels
will thus be forced to contribute
this  additional  tax.
GERM DISCOVERED
Cause of Infantile Paralysis Has Been
Located by Dr. Simon
Flexner
Microscope   Fails   to   RcWal   Minute
Organism—Method of Spreading the Disease
Dr. Simon Flexner, of the Rockefeller Institute, has declared that it
has been thoroughly established infantile paralysis, which has been increasing among children in the last
few years, is a germ disease.
The germ, it is true, is too small
to be detected by any microscope,
but Its presence, he says, has been
established in other ways through
a'.i'imal   experimentation.
Dr. Flexner, who, as a rule, is
silent as to the discoveries made at
the institute of which he is director,
consented to make this statement in
explanation of one of the arguments
he brought forward at a hearing* at
Albany last week in defense of the
use of animals in medical research.
Dr. Flexner then declared the means
for the prevention of infantile
paralysis has been established and
it. might conservatively be said the
achievement of a cure is not far distant.
"Infantile paralysis," said Dr.
Flexner, "is a germ disease that
attacks the spinal marrow and
brain, and by merely injuring or by
destroying the delicate tissues
causes either a temporary or permanent paralysis of the muscles.
"The germ of the disease has been
known a little more than a year. It
is so excessively minute the most
powerful microscope fails to reveal
it, and yet there are accurate methods by which the nature and presence of the germ have ueen determined  with certainty.
"The proof that infantile paralysis is a germ disease and almost all
our accurate knowledge concerning
the nature of tlie disease have been
secured through experiments on animals, and probably could have been
obtained in no other way."
"Where does tlie germ reside?"
tlie doctor was asked.
"It is not known to reside anywhere in nature," was the reply,
"except In connection with human
beings who either have bad or have
been in contact with some one who
has had infantile paralysis, or in relation with some object In close association with patienls suffering
from the disease."
"How is tlie disease spread?"
was the next question.
"By persons il! with the disease
or by some one who has been In
contact with a patient suffering
from the disease,"  was  Ihe reply.
Dr. Flexner went on to exp'aln
that the germ of infantile paralysis
enters the brain and spinal cord
chiefly, if not exclusively, by way
of the nasal passages. In the course
of the disease tlie germ also is
thrown off from the brain through
tbe nose and mouth.

CENSUS   TAKING,
Commissioner   is   Laying   His   Plans
for  the  Work  in
H a ml
Frank Mobley, the commissioner
for taking Ihe census in the northern part of tlie Oomox-Afclin district, is already planning bis work.
With a territory difficult to cover,
he is starting early In making preliminary arrangements so that there
may be no difficulty experienced.
He will have to meet every one of
his assistants before the date arrives in June and give them definite
instructions.
it costs something to lake the
census of Canada. The appropriation for the purpose is $1^000,000,
but Mr. Archibald Blue, the census
commissioner, says that the cost
will exceed  this amount.
The commissioners have been appointed and their names will be announced In the Canada Gazette.
There are 220 in all. Three permanent officials of the census bureau
will be assigned to meet the commissioners at various convenient
points throughout the Dominion.
There will probably be four or five
meeting places in Ontario and the
same number in Quebec. There will
be one meeting place in the Maritime Provinces and one in each of
the western provinces. The instructions will be given to the enumerators in May. The latter have not
as yet been appointed. Actual work
on the census will be commenced
on June 1.
It has been arranged that tlie factors, or district managers of the
Hudson's Bay Company, will take
the census at the different stations
of this company, and one of the
principal officers of the company
has been appointed a commissioner.
The Indian agents of the government will take the census at all the
Indian agencies. They will receive
their instructions direct from the
census bureau and report directly
to it instead of to the Department of
Indian Affairs. At the last census
there: were 93,460 full-blooded Indians in Canada and 34,481 half-
breeds. It is expected the aborigines while not showing any great
increase, will be able to hold their
own.
While perhaps the most marked
increase in the population of Canada will be found in the various cities, rapid strides have been made
in the rural districts of Ontario
and the west.

NEW  ASSESSOR   NAMED
I Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, March 81.—Provincial appointments just made
include A. Cuthbert, Prince Rupert, to be assessor and: collector for Prince Rupert assessment district and George J.
Walker to have charge of the
new provincial administration
centre at Fort George.
The board of school trustees met
yesterday afternoon in the city hall
with the chairman, D. G. Stewart,
presiding, and trustees C. V. Bennett, O. H. Nelson and Secretary
Sawle present.
The principal business to come up
was that of the selection of a teacher to begin duly after Easter. Five
applications were received, two of
them being from qualified British
Columbia teachers. These were
Miss Marion B. Johnson, of Vancouver and Miss May Selman, of
Vancouver. The other applicants
were Misses Mabel Beatty, of Prince
Rupert, formerly a teacher in Ontario; Miss Edith L. Carson, of Pavilion, and Mrs. Charles V. Coombe3,
of Vancouver, who had taught in the
United States.
After discussion the board felt
that teachers who had qualified in
British Columbia should be given a
preference, all other qualifications
being equal, it was decided to make
Miss Johnson the first choice and
failing her acceptance, Miss Beatty
should be engaged.
Miss Johnson lias taught for
about twenty years and comes highly  recommended.
Steps were taken to secure a Nelson shield for the school, the educational value being considered im-t
portant. The shields are made from
copper taken from the Victory ami
were given through the generosity
of Lord Strathcona. The gift is
made dependent, upon a small subscription to the Sailors Home Association. Tlie board voted $"> for the
purpose.
The Earl Grey Rifles and the Boy
Scouts will be asked to see that the
front door of the old school is provided with a lock and kept barred
during tlie time it is not being used
by those bodies.
A letter was ordered sent' to>
Bishop Du Vernet in reply to one
forwarded by him to the board. At
the last meeting a letter was sent
the bishop asking him to give particulars with respect to unbecoming
conduct in the school during the
noon hour. His reply, read last
evening did not give any names, but
suggested that as the janitor stayed
in the school during the noon hour
there would probably be no further
trouble.
The board decided to write the
bishop regretting that no names
were given so that an investigation
might   lie  held.
It was decided to ask the city engineer to make some suggestion as
to tho method of preparing the
school grounds for recreation purposes for tlie scholars and the probable cost.
A number of accounts were
passed.

been fully gone Into and covered the

of the report it was felt was essentially technical in Its character and
the aldermen felt that they could
not be expected to pass judgment
on It.
Involving, as it did an expenditure hy the city of about half a million dollars, which would be a permanent asset of the city, it was
thought that in the public interest
ii might possibly be wise to submit

ALASKA COAL FIELDS
ReportediThat Move is to be Made by the
I United States Government to Devel-
ope the Properties
Governor   Clark    Has    Been    Summoned to Washington for
Conference
Anheuser-Busch s
The summoning of Governor Walter E. Clark, of Alaska, to the National capital is regarded as one of
the most significant moves made by
the Tail administration at Washington in preparing the way for
the opening of Ihe Alaska coal
fields. Mr. Clark as lie passed
through Seattle, carried a draft bill
which he Is to submit to President
Taft, and with his approval to the
extra session of congress, from
which body lie expects favorable
legislation   for   Alaska   development.
"Alaska paid almost $2,000,000
last year for her coal supply, most
of which ca ne from British Columbia," said Governor Clark. "Yet
official estimates of the amount of
Alaska coal In sight, indicate that
the northern supply will be enough
to last the United States, at the
present rate of consumption, 5,000
years.
"Alaska lias been kept back by
the tremendous cost of all sorts of
articles. Reduce the cost of
transportation, and the district, will
have a chance to go ahead. The
way to do this is to open the natural resources, induce the building of
railways, provide fuel for locomotives and steamships, and then protect navigation with lighthouses
and signals that will keep shipping
off the rocks. This last year has
seen an appalling list of disasters to
marine craft. With aids to navigation the death rate of vessels as
well as of human kind will be lighter, insurance rates will be lower,
and steamship companies will be
able  to  reduce  freights.
The latter part of this week will
see the shipment northward of 102
tons of steel tankage for Katalla
oil. This consignment will provide
for 37,000 barrels of crude petroleum from the four flowing wells of
the Amalgamated Development
Company. These four wells are
now corked awaiting the arrival
and installation of equipment, but
are ready to flow more than 2,000
barrels of high-grade oil a day, as
soon as the plugs are taken out.
Alaska newspapers estimate that
fully 'twenty-five drills will be at
work in the Katalla district. The
rumor is current that some of the
big financial powers of the country
are silent partners in some of the
oil operations.
There are few if any oils known
that have such a high percentage of
illuminant and gasoline products, as
that, of Alaska. Between 75 and
80 per cent, of tho flow from the
Katalla wells is benzine or gasoline
and kerosene almost evenly divided.
A refinery in process of construction near Katalla wi'l handle 500
barrels a day for local consumption.

Active   Propaganda    Heing   Conducted with Purpose of Advancing  Religion
"A mighty struggle for suprem-
ac is going on in various parts of
the world between Christianity and
Mohammedanism," says Current
Literature. "The two religions clash
more particularly in their missionary activities, and the struggle finds
even more vivid reflection in the
Mohammedan than In the Christian
papers, owing to the fact that tlie
former are nearer to the scene of
the contest.
"The Moslem press of Egypt, and j
India reports at great length, and
with evident satisfaction, every favor that is shown by Christian government to Islam. It emphasizes
the good understanding between the
Moslems and the Christian governments, but at the same time makes
It clear and emphatic that Mohammedans will submit, to no attacks on
their religious convictions, customs
and usages.
"The Arabic weekly, Elmupped,
published in Egypt, reports In full
the details of a great Mohammedan
conference held recently in Delhi.
In this port the English government is lauded .because it has given
the Mohammedans such extensive
liberties, and makes the attainment
of their purposes so easy. As a result of the conference a strong International Moslem society has been
organized in India, Egypt and Russia for tbe purpose of spreading Islam throughout Asia and Africa.

pointed for the purpose of translating into Japanese a book entitled
'Ruh ul islam' (The Spirit of Islam), written by an Indian savant,
Sejld Emir Alijudhlndi, and universally regarded as the best popular
defence  of  Mohammedanism.
"Since the introduction of the
constitution there have appeared in
ail of the cities of Turkey a large
number of religious weeklies. The
more important of these are Siratl
Mustagin and Benjanul Hagg, both
issued in Constantinople. These
papers which are extensively spread
throughout the entire Mohammedan
world, make it one of their leading purposes to cast reflections and
ridicule on Christian teachings and
customs and, in addition, to awaken
in their Mohammedan readers the
fantastic hope that the leading
Christian lands and people will
soon come under the dominion of
Islam. They report converts in
goodly number in London and Paris
and also in Germany.
"Everywhere active propaganda
of Islam is the watchword; and
many converts of prominence in the
world of learning and science are
claimed.- The impression conveyed
by these papers is that the learned
world of the west is more and more
breaking away from the church and
Christianity, and is gradually accepting the fundamental teachings
of Islam. Monogamy, it is said, has
long since been discarded by many
Christians, and a formal movement
in favor of polygamy and making
divorce easier is represented as having been inaugurated. In the same
way, it is stated, the number of
Christians who accept the abstinence commands of the Koran is
rapidly on the increase, as the great
superiority of Mohammedanism
over Christianity, in this respect is
being recognized."

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
LONDON'S ALIENS
Many  Pilgrims  Find  Homes  in   the
Metropolis of the British
Isles
There are more foreigners living
In London than there are people in
any one of half the seventy-six
great towns of England and Wales.
In the two years which followed
the passing of the Alien Act of
1905, aliens settled in London at
the rate of over 30,000 a year,
three times the increase during the
two years preceding and including
1905. In one year—1908—26,000
Russians settled in London, a number which is almost equal to the
total German population of the
metropolis. No other figures approach those of the Russian immigration during the past few years.
The nearest are those of the Italian
movement, more than 5,000 Italians settling in London in 1908.
The last year for which figures
are available Is 1908, and in that
year the foreign population of London was constituted as follows:
Austrians 6,639; French 11,264;
Germans 27,427; Dutch 4,249;
Italians 10,889; Norwegians and
Swedes 2,742; Poles 15,420; Russians 38,117; Swiss 4,419; Americans 5,561; other continental races
6,829;   other countries 1,521.
The alien population of London
has grown during the past five
years in the following rate: 1904,
41,000; 1905, 55,000; 1906, 60,-
250;   1907,   95,00j;   1908,   135,300.
The estimates for 1909 put the
foreign population between 140,000
and 150,000, and for 1910 at a
much higher figure.
The greater number of these foreigners who make London their
home are peaceful, law-abiding citizens. Sometimes, as in the case of
Russians and Poles, they come to
London to escape military service,
but the majority of them are there
to work. As a matter of fact,
whether they be Russian and Polish
tailors, bootmakers and cabinetmakers, or German clerks and
agents, or Italian pavlors or workers in mosaic, their object in making London their home is to earn
money. They are told in their -own
country the same stories once told
to credulous provincials — that
there is wealth to be made in London, and it is to their credit that,
being in tlie main sober, very industrious and thrifty, they do acquire
wealth, especially in the tailoring,
bootmaking and  furniture trades.
While it is true that more than
55,000 Russians and Poles are
known to be living in London, the
proportion of crime in their ranks is
not greater than in those of other
nationalities.
In 1909 2,617 aliens throughout
the United Kingdom were sentenced
for various offences, 1,011 being
fined, while the remainder were
sent to prison.
Tlie nationalities represented by
these offenders were: American
622; Russian and Pole 517; German 544; Norwegian 305; Italian
225; French 169; Swiss 61; Austrian 57; Dutch 53; Belgian 35;
Spanish 16; Hungarian 4; others
98.
;:es through to Ed3on, Which makes
it possible for the settle' to get
through to the base of the government :o-d to Grande Prairie at a
very nominal figure.
Within the next two weeks, about
one thousand settlers are expected
to arrive In the city. Some of these
are now on the road, 200 having
left Chicago the other day, and a
large party having left Montreal
yesterday.
The three excursions to be run
from the east and south on April 4
by the provincial publicity bureau
will bring several hundred bona
fide settlers.
 o	
In response to the representations of a deputation from Chilli-
wack which recently interviewed the
government to urge financial assistance in the building of the Chilli-
wack trail to Steamboat Mountain
a government engineer has been instructed to go over the route and
estimate the cost of the proposed
trail

lU'SH OK SETTLERS
Peace    River    District    Will    Have
Large Population Pom- in
This Year
At least two thousand settlers
will pass through Edmonton to
Grande Prairie and the Peace river
country this summer, according to
some estimates that have been made
and Chief Publicity Commissioner
Hotchkiss of the Alberta government, estimates that several thousand will go through.
From his connections with eastern points, and the correspondence
that he has received during the winter months, Mr. Hotchkiss finds
that a large bulk of the Immigration that will come to Edmonton
this summer will go through to the
Peace river country. The stream
of settlement has begun to flow that
way, and nothing, not even reports
of bad roads, can stop it now. Most
of these settlers will go west to
Edson, and will go Into the new
Grande Prairie farms by way of the
new government road from Edson
north. In spite of the conflicting
reports that have come in A'garding
the condition of this road, the government is taking steps to have It
ready for summer travel, and It is
stated that the road will be complete  In a short  time.
A stage line that will make 40
miles a day over the new road, will
be put In operation shsrtly by J. B.
Taft, former government guide.
Very cheap rates are being offered by the railway companies for
these settlers now coming In. The

THE NEW ASSESSOR
Tiie despatch contained in another
column announcing the appointment
of A. Cuthbert as assessor for ihis
district to succeed W. II. Vickers,
resigned, is not unexpected, as the
government at Victoria upon the
adoption of the civil service act
makes a practice to observe the
principle of promotion within tlie
ranks of the service itself. The
principle is a good one and in the
selection of a man in the local civil
service to fill Hie position there
Will be satisfaction. Mr. Cuthbert
has been an efficient official and his
promotion will be highly satisfactory to the general public who have
to deal with him. He is painstaking and courteous and .should fill
the  position  well.
said: "It is not the usual thing
for a government desirous of getting
out a supply bill to introduce the
subject by a column of blather in
the Globe. If, however, the government considers that these tactics
are likely to be successful they are
at perfect liberty to go on aniW
hope they will be satisfied with the
result."
Hon. Robert Rogers, who was in
Ottawa, had not the slightest hesitation in giving his answer. "An
election cannot come too soon in
Manitoba for us on the reciprocity
issue." he said. "The province is
against the agreement, and Is ready
jto declare i's opinion at any time it
lis given an opportunity. Wo have
confidence in the result."
A. H. Crosby, Mr. Borden's colleague from Halifax, said lie was
delighted with ihe challenge. "We
are ready in Nova Scotia," he said.
Nova Scotia did ils duty before
when unrestricted reciprocity was
the issue, and sent an overwhelming
majority against it. Nova Scotia is
of the same opinion today, and will
do the same when given an opportunity  to vote upon  it.
Dr. Roche, of Marquette, assistant
chief conservative whip, said, "The
governments are making time on
the agreement. They are allowing
the debate to drag on. They will
get a clear, definite and emphatic
answer when they have anything -to
say in the house regarding this matter."
 o	
TO  PASS  ON  PLANS
The decision of the city council
to have a second engineer's approval of the waterworks plans before
proceeding to expend the money involved, is a wise move from the public standpoint. The sum is a large
one to expend. In Col. Davis, the
city has an engineer that, is recognized as a credit to his profession.
His deductions are in all probability
the correct ones. It may be that
on submission to another expert, no
less able than the city engineer,
some changes may be suggested that
may meet with the approval of Col.
Davis. It may possibly be found
that the plans are all that could be
desired, in which case the council
will have the double assurance that
the course outlined is a wise one.
As we understand it, the council
feels well satisfied with the proposals, but as it is impossible for the
members of that body to have expert
knowledge in such affairs a submission for approval to some other recognized authority Is deemed wise.
This would remove any adverse
criticism at a later date when the
work rannot be altered.

Novelist

How the Political Situation is Viewed
at the Federal
Capital
Conservative  Leaders  Declare They
Are Ready to Take an Appeal
to the People
As the result of the intimations
made by the Toronto Globe and other Liberal papers that in the event
of the Opposition at Ottawa refusing to vote supply or otherwise
block the business of the house,
there may bo an appeal to Ihe country, has led to some speculation as
to  what  the  result  would   be.
The Canadian fiscal year concludes on March 31, when the government will require funds to carry
on the business of thp country,
With the object of getting money
voted and ascertain what is the
policy of the opposil Inn in regard
to supply, the Globe says that the
estimates will be considered almost
continuously tor Hie next two
weeks. Tbe reciprocity debate will
occupy the attention of the house
only   one  day  in   each   week.
In the event of obstructive tactics
being adopted by tbe Opposition, It
is said that the government will
force the Opposition to sit night and
day in an effort to push business
through.
Only in the event of supply being
definitely refused would there be an
appeal to the country.
R. L. Borden, the Opposition leader, when questioned as to the attitude of the Opposition to the challenge, refused to discuss the matter, saying that when the government made known its intentions In
the house he would be ready with
his reply.
One of the responsible Conservatives,  when asked  for    an  opinion,
Lord Rosebery was the principal
speaker at a meeting held at the
mansion House, London, recently in
connection with the Dickens centenary memorial stamp scheme.
Lord Rose lery declared that he
had ot come to urge a memorial.
"Speaking for myself," he said,
"and I suspect for the majority of
this audience, we are all getting a
little   weary  of  memorials.
"Of course, 1 am now alluding—■
1 must guard myself against being
supposed to allude—to these memorials which are everywhere springing u]i spontaneously to the memory
of a great and good King; but I am
most emphatically alluding lo the
memorials for which we receive applications every morning, sometimes
to solicit contributions to memorials
for persons whose names we have
not heard of and oftener still of persons with whose merits we are not
conversant.
"We all know the circular we are
apt to receive, which says that 'It is
generally felt in this community
that we ought to commemorate the
virtuous life of Mr. Snook, and it is
still more strongly felt in this community that the memorial should
take the form of a pump, which the
village has long desiderated.' You
cannot help suspecting that the object of the circular is rather to provide the pump than to commemorate
any memory in particular.
"The time is not far distant when
it will be a greater distinction to the
illustrious to have no memorial
than to be commemorated in this indiscriminate   fashion.
"I am coming to the more practical object of this assembly. I am
here to claim the long overdue payment of a debt.
26,000,000 Sets
"It is estimated—these facts are
kindly supplied for my use this afternoon; 1 cannot conceive how they
are arrived at, hilt I give them lor
what they are worth—that there are
25,000,000 sets of Dickens' works In
the world at this moment, making,
as my statistician tells me, due allowance for. wear and tear—and we
must all allow that the wear and
tear on Dickens' works must be al-
uiosl the greatest wear and tear
known  In literature.
"While lie gave us these great
works, for which we owe hi ma debt
which we can never express, and
which we can never repay, we gave
rim very little. I think lie died
worth between 170,000 and .£80,000
and it is calculated that £50,000 of
that arose, not from these works,
but from his reading of these works
on public occasions. Now I think
we shall feel that that is a very
inadequate return as compared to
modern returns—to the modern returns, for example, of a successful
play. It Is a very inadequate return
lo this great genius for what he did
for us.
"I am not going into the details
of his works. I am not going to appeal to that noble tragedy, 'A Tale
of Two Cities,' which stands on a
pedestal by Itself. I am not going
to appeal to that, delightful serleB
of stories by which he resuscitated
Christmas as a popular  festival.
"Apart from the religious phase,
there are Circumstances    In    Christ
mas, chronological circumstances,
which make it highly unsuitable for
any kind of rejoicing, it is towards
the end of the year when we are anticipating with lively apprehension
the delivery of our annual accounts,
and, chronologically speaking, from
causes apart from our own control,
no festival is so unhappily placed
for rejoicing as is the festival of
Christmas.
Laugh Maker
"But this great genius took up
Christmas! he warmed its dying embers, and he has left it what, I
think, he did not find it, the greatest national rejoicing of the year.
"My claim on you all rests on
neither of these things. I am going
to rest It on onl yone claim, and yet
the claims are innumerable. Dickens has taught us how to laugh.
"The world, when 'Pickwick Papers' appeared, was not a very gay
world. It was, I admit, somewhere
about the time of the coronation of
Queen Victoria, but when -we read
the literature of that time we see
littletrace of anything that could
amuse anybody. The restoration
dramatists and even the humor of
Fielding and Goldsmith no longer
provoked laughter, but in this island, washed as it is—as Beacons-
field, I think, said—by a melancholy ocean, laughter is a physical
necessity.
"And, after all, am I not right in
saying that a laugh, a real laugh,
at any literary product—except, of
course, over a book you are reading,
is almost the rarest luxury you can
enjoy?
"Well, now, I say we live under
a, sunless sky, surrounded by a melancholy ocean, devoured, as our
French friends tell us, by the spleen
and it Is a physical necessity for the
English nation—and even for the
Scotch nation—and the Welsh, to
laugh.
"It is the most glorious and the
most innocent of all enjoyments. It
exhilarates  all  social  relations.
"Now, as I say, I do not think the
the literature of the early days of
s.ueen Victoria, or the reign of William IV, was very exhilarating, but
now any one who tastes Dickens—
and I suppose from the sale of his
works the number of people who
tasted Dckens must be'almost conterminous with the races of the
world—any one who tastes Dickens
and feels depressed, unhappy or
physically unwell has only to take
down his 'Pickwick' and read a few
pages which he knows, possibly by
heart already, and he will find himself indulging in that innocent and
glorious recreation of which 1
spoke."

served meals practically all the time
in the dining room.
There was no evidence that the
liquor was not sold except with
meals but His Worship undertook
to give Mr. Ashland warning. He
said that the commissioners were
goin gto see that the license bylaw
and all the regulations were lived
up to strictly. He remarked upon
the fact that only a few months before there had been such a strong
effort made to secure licenses and
now within such a short time it
would appear that there was an endeavor on the parts of some to see
how "near tbe wind they could sail"
in connection with the law. He advised Mr. Ashland not to see how
far he could go and still keep
within the law. It would be better
for him to be on the safe side. The
commissioners were not there to
give advice as to what he could do
bul would deal severely with anyone who wns found guilty of Infringing the law.
In tbe case of the Knox Hotel
His Worship said It seemed evident
thai liquor was supplied. The case
fell down when It came to the point
of deciding who served the liquor.
Johnson was a poor witness and It
did not appear clear that the liquor
was served by any employee of the
house. He warned the proprietor
to take proper precautions to see
that none of his employees violated
the law as the commissioners would
deal severely In the matter.
Mr. Fisher raised the point of the
charge laid against the Prince Rupert Wholesale Liquor Supply Company last year which bad never been
gone on  with,
Chief Vickers said no evidence
was In his bands.
The case  was  formally  dismissed.
It was suggested that when hotel
keepers discharged bartenders for
not attempting to live up to the law
that their names should be reported
to the clerk so as to have a record
of them .

SECHELT WRECK
Search at the scene of the disaster to the steamer Sechelt off Beechy
Head, near Victoria, has resulted in
the discovery of two hatches of the
Ill-fated vessel.    No bodies nor any
traces of the survivors have been
found. The number drowned is declared to be between  20 and  2 5.
Only two hatches were found to
indicate the fate of the steamer
Sechelt, which capsized and went
down with all on board, the number
being variously estimated from 17
to 26. The only list was kept on
the boat. A search party spent all
day patrolling the shore line. No
bodies were found, previous reports
to that effect being erroneous.
Indians who witnessed the disaster, Harry Charles, his wife and
father-in-law, who stood on Church
Point, the eastern entrance to
Beecher Bar, were interviewed and
told of seeing the steamer three
miles off the eastern entrance to
Beecher Bay, where she swung with
her beam to the wind, and was
struck by two seas in quick succession, going over on her starboard
side. She righted and went over
again, going down while the Indians
watched.
They saw no signs of life afterwards. The Indian ran to the nearest settler's house, two miles away,
and Parker, a settler, rode on horseback to Reid's settlement, four
miles away. Thence a telephone
message was sent to the Williams
Head quarantine station. A launch
was sent to Victoria and the tugs
William Jolliffe and Madge started
on an Ineffectual search, neither
sighting a signal. Tbe tug Hopkins
of Sooke found  two hatches.
Thirteen passengers had disembarked at Williams Heal, about 20
remaining on board. The steamer
carried some railroad iron and
trucks on herd deck and this is believed to have shifted when the vessel, swung broadside to the seas.
Chief Officer Moore of the William Jolliffe, on his return from her
futile search, stated that it was his
firm belief that within twenty minutes after the ship capsized not one
of the persons aboard was alive.
"They would have no chance," he
said. "If all were good swimmers
and had time to secure lifebelts they
could not last any length of time in
the nasty seas. In the tiderips and
cross currents a person would be
surely drowned."
Those known to have been
drowned are:
J. W. Burns, aged 50, and Mrs.
Burns, his wife; Mr. George King
Newton, aged 26, of Victoria, surveyor;     J   .E.   Henderson,  aged   26,
lineman; Captain H. V. James, aged
27, master of the Sechelt; Hugh
Young, engineer of the Sechelt, belonging to Vancouver; a fireman,
name unknown; two deckhands and
a Chinese cook. Three others at
least are known to have been on
the boat when she foundered.
What happened on board can
only be conjectured. When the vessel arrived at the quarantine station wharf from Victoria thirteen
men disembarked and those on the
wharf state that there seemed to be
five or six others seated in the cabin who were making the trip to
Sooke. The wind was very cola and
hail and rain squalls  prevailed.
Captain Jarvis, of the British Columbia Shipping Company, her owner, states that when she left Victoria' there were at least thirty
passengers on board. As tho crew
numbered six this would bring the
total up to thirty-six. Thirteen disembarked at Williams Head, leaving twenty-three aboard, and all
these were carried to a watery
grave.     The  unknown  victims    are
believed to oe men who were on
their way to seek employment at the
construction camp of the Canadian
Northern Pacific Railway at Sooke.
The Sechelt, which sailed out of
Victoria until February was originally named the Hattie Hanson,
and was built at Pontiac, Washington, in 1893. Four or five years
ago she was purchased by the Sechelt Steamship Company and re-
christened the Sechelt and has since
been ' operated between Vancouver
and Sechelt. Her career has not
been fortunate and she has been
ashore a number of times. Once,
after stranding in the First Narrows, she followed the mishap almost immediately by going on the
rocks at Bowen Island. The Sechelt
Steamship Company went into liquidation a short time ago, and the
lost steamer, with another, called
the New  Era,  was  sold.
The Vancouver Island Development Association proposes to raise
$30,000 in the next two years for
publicity  purposes.'

COMPANY IS FORMED
Hazelton Sunrise is to Start Developing
Its Claims this
Year
Rich   Group   Taken   Over   by   Strong
Syndicate   of   Local
Investors
The latest mining venture to be
floated in the city is the Hazelton-
Sunrlse, Ltd,, a company which has
Just been formed to develop what
promises to be a very valuable
group of claims in the Hazelton district. The new company is but one
of many that must be organized in
this city to develop tlie interior
mining properties.
The men who are interested In
the Hazeiton-Sunrise are men who
have had excellent opportunities to
become acquainted with the possibilities of the camp. They have been
successful investors in the same district and have had the fullest information before making the purchase
The company has purchased five
claims outright. These are the
Sunrise, Sunset, Noonday, Eethel
and Hidden Treasurer, containing
in all about 90 acres. The claims
are among the oldest locations in
the camp and while the price is not
given out for publication it is said
to be the highest yet paid for any
property  in  the  Hazelton  district.
The company officers elected are
as follows: Donald McLeod, president; Vernor W. Smith, vice president; L. W. Patmore, secretary-
treasurer; directors — J. Fred
Ritchie, J. A. Smith, Angus Stewart
and Hugh A. Harris. The directors
is a sufficient guarantee that business ability will be shown in the
conduct, of the affairs.
The development will be proceeded with as quickly as men and material can be got on the ground. A
limited amount of treasury stock, it
is  understood,   will   be   offered   for

COPPER RIVER TRAIL
One Hundred Mules Will be put on the
Route This Spring to Handle
Trade
F.  L.  Charlton  Has  Made Arrangements for Business Enterprise This Season
F. L. Carlson, of Telkwa has
made arrangements for a pack trail
service over the Copper River route
from Copper City to Telkwa this
summer.
He will put on about one hundred
mules as soon as the first steamer
is expected up river, and commence
running the pack train as soon as
the first ton is delivered at Copper
City. lie let a contract to Paul
Post of Copper River for the erection in Copper City of a 200-ton
warehouse,
During the summer goods will be
shipped by train from Prince Rupert to Copper River siding, at
which point they can be ferried
across the Skeena by tlie Copper
River-Copper City cable ferry. The
pack train will easily deliver every
ton at tlie other end of the trail before the season is over, that will be
required by the people of the valley next winter.
The outlook for the Sliver Cup
mine, in which local men are largely interested, is exceeding bright.
From Hazelton comes the news that
those best able to judge of the slt-
aation expect to hear of remarkable
finds in the Silver Dollar, one of
the claims not yet exploited by the
company.
The Silver Dollar claim, the
southernmost one of the group is
as yet practically unexplored, the
only opening being an open cut
about fifty feet within the northern
boundary of the claim. The vein on
the Hazelton, the original claim on
Nine Mile and owned by J. C. K.
Sealy, passes into the Silver Dollar
and a big body of ore is expected at
the junction of the two veins.
Recent developments on the Duke
claim have greatly enhanced the
value of the property.
On the Duke claim a recent discovery has been made which averages $136.21 a ton. The Silver Cup
group looks like being a record-
breager bzefore being fully developed.
ERIE CLAIM OUTLOOK
E. L. Kimnan Will Put Large Force
(o     Work     This
Spring
E. L. Kinman, owner of the Erie
claim on Four Mile Hill, has one
more payment to make to the locator, E. Attridge, of ten thousand
dollars, and which will fall due In
June. With the opening of navigation Mr. Kinman will arrive in Hazelton for the  summer's work.
From thirty-five to forty men will
be kept at work all summer. There
are several veins on tlie property
which have not been opened yet and
the whole force will be engaged in
surface stripping until the owner is
satisfied that he knows the extent
and value of all ihe suriace crop-
pings. Permanent underground
work which will be determined by
the results of the surface stripping
will then start.
When work was discontinued last
fall a trench showed the solid ore
ten feet six inches wide and passing
under the earth in the same solid
form on the foot wall side. An
average sample taken at this point
showed values in silver and lead of
$49.90 across the full width. The
first point to be determined is the
whole width of the ore body and its
relationship to the body of granitic
rock some distance away, to determine if the latter is an overflow
from a neighboring eruptive area of
a dike.

TELKWA   COAL  PROPERTY
Active      Work      Towards      Getting
Started in tin. Spring Already Commenced
Amos Godfrey, manager for tlie
syndicate that some months ago
took over the coal claims thirty-
five miles northwest of Telkwa, has
hud a number of men at work all
«Inter.
Te anticipates extensive development work done on the property
this summer, and expects to make
Telkwa hbis base for supplies, as
this town is situated right at the
mouth of the Telkwa river, and
within most convenient, reach of
their camp. It is believed that as
soon as the steel reaches Telkwa, a
branch will be built out through the
i-oal property owned by Ihe Grand
Trunk Pacific, and over to this
camp. Work done to date exposes
enough coal to insure several car-
loada a day tor the next ten years.
H. E. Bodine, has gone to his
placer mining camp on Silver Creek,
Omineca district, with an outfit consisting of four Indians, sixteen dogs,
and four toboggans, ou which were
different parts of an Empire drill.
Tills drill Is the same size as the
drill lie took Into camp last summer—4 inch—and as soon as he arrives at camp he will start crews
working on both drills. lie has
five tons of supplies at the camp
and intends packing several tons
more In from Hazelton as soon as
navigation opens and steamers take
supplies up river.
The company he represents bold
leases on twelve miles of ground, on
which sufficient prospecting has already been done on part of tlie
ground to prove up continuous working ground for two dredges for two
years, that will not run under $2
per cubic yard.
 o	
Edward Jardine, awaiting trial
at Goderich, Ont., for the murder of
Lizzie Anderson, lias made a complete confession that he committed
the deed alone. The confession was
made to Dr. Brace Smith, Inspector
of prison asylums, and chief Coroner Johnson, of Toronto, who examined Jardine as to his sanity.
Because of the fast encroaching
sands, which threaten to crowd it
out of existence, the Evergreen
House, the well-known hotel at the
Sandbanks, Prince Edward county's
summer resort, has been sold at
auction for the ridiculously low-
price of $160. It,, was knocked
down to the highest bidder, John W.
Whattani. The property originally
consisted of the summer hotel and
three acres of land. Of recent years
the sandbank has been travelling
so fast that they have now almost
covered the three acres of land.
Only the corner wliere the house
stands remains uncovered. Within
a dozen yards of the back door a
sandbank a mile in extent and sixty
feet high is slowly but surely moving forward, covering up a fine cedar grove, and in a year or so will
bear down upon the house. It will
not be long before the site where
the Evergreen stood will be pointed
out to summer tourists as one of
tlie famous sandbanks.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
MANITOBA'S OFFER
Premier Roblin Speaks Plainly in Dealing With the Boundry
Question
Opposition   Is   in   Accord   with   the
Government in the
Matter
The Manitoba government refused the offer of Sir Wilfrid Laurier for a settlement of the boundary question and insists on equal
rights accorded to other provinces
of the confederation.
The resolution carried in the legislature sets forth that Manitoba is
willing to consider either the control of all public lands, minerals,
etc., such as Nova Scotia, New
Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario
have, or financial and other considerations of a character similar to
those given or to be given to Saskatchewan  and  Alberta.
The resolution is prefaced by a
preamble which points out that at
the time of the passage of the British North America act it was clearly
the spirit and Intention of the farmers that all of the provinces
should be dealt with on the basis of
equality. It also observes that Manitoba has not since its confederation
received fair treatment at the hands
of the federal authorities and at the
present time occupies a position of
gross inequality with the provinces
" to the west. It is also pointed out
that for thirty years Manitoba has
been endeavoring to obtain relief,
but without success. The offer of
Sir Wilfrid Is refused on the ground
that it does not recognize the principle of equality.
Premier's  Speech
It was before crowded    galleries
that Premier    Roblin addressed the
House on the subject.
He prefaced his speecn by saying
he believed he had the full sympathy of every member of the legislature as well as every good citizen
of Manitoba. After reviewing the
ten years of effort towards securing
boundary extension on satisfactory
terms, dwelling particularly on the
negotiations his government had
opened at the time the autonomy
bills were under consideration, Pre-
. mier Roblin pointed out that the
claims of the province had always
been presented from two standpoints, either the public domain or
financial considerations equal to
those of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
The ' negotiations with Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, either by Messrs. Rogers
and Campbell and himself, had resulted in nothing to the point, until
finally they were made the offer
they now had under consideration
namely, $200,000 as a minimum
and $300,000 as a maximum, based
en population, in lieu of the public
domain in the territory to be added.
Crippling Manitoba
"Now, s!r," he continued, "I have
only to make that statement In order to shock the public conscience
of this province, if not of the Dominion, to say that the province of
Manitoba, with all her energy and
all her enterprise in establishing
the bona fides of western Canada
should thus be handicapped and
crippled for all time to come, is, in
my opinion, simply an outrage. I
believe there is not a single individual citizen of Manitoba who does
not v .ee with me that the of fells simply an insult whether intended or not, to this province."
Mr. Roblin went on to compare
the terms offered Manitoba and
those Saskatchewan has got, claiming that the latter has got two dollars for every one of the former.
"Who is there," he exclaimed,
"among us that would be so base,
so wanting in self-respect, so untrue
to his adopted or native province,
that would not resent the imputation that a citizen of this province
is not as good and worth as much
to the Dominion as is a citizen of
Saskatchewan?"
Capitalize Swamp Lands
The swamp lands, indeed, had to
be taken Into consideration and if
they could not get the public domain, such portion of these lands as
were not yet sold (about half),
should be returned to the Dominion
government and capitalized, the
same being taken into account when
Manitoba was placed on the same
financial basis as Saskatchewan.
But they had been refused that
basis of settlement, as the members
might see by the offers placed before them.
"The question that this legislature must decide,' went on the
Premier, "Is whether we can afford
to accept an Inferior position in con-
■ ' federation for all time or whether
We should strengthen our claim by
! a  more  united   and   determined   ef
fort to secure recognition that will
give us justice and equality in the
provinces.
Laurier Responsible
'I do not believe Sir Witfrid
Laurier and his government represents the will of the parliament of
Canada at this moment in this particular. I do not believe that there
are 25 men in the public life of
Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver,
who are unwilling that the province
of Manitoba should have a status of
equality with the other provinces in
confederation. Firmly, conscientiously believing that, I say that we
have no other thing to do than to
decline with a courtesy, but with a
firmness that cannot be misunder-
stood£ the offer that is before us,
and wait, but always urging our
claim, until such time as the government of Canada is willing to
concede what I believe the public
men of Canada agree should be given In this regard. It is true that
we may be compelled to wait some
considerable time, but it is possible
that our time of relief is closer than
some of us may think.
I have no hesitation in saying
that, in my opinion, any government, led by any other man than
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, would be willing to consider our case on the
facts."
Mr. Roblin then went Into & review of the financial value of the
north country and the cost of its administration.
What It Means
In conclusion, he said: "1 shall
not enlarge upon the question because the house and the country
familiar with it, but we cannot, in
justice to ourselves, in justice to
posterity, in justice to the Dominion, acept these terms. Ifc we do,
gone Is the possibility for a greater
Manitoba, such as we have had
hope and aspirations for, gone Is
the possibility of establishing and
maintaining a provincial university
along such lines of efficiency as the
age demands; gone is the possibility
of a continuation of present aids to
our common schools; gone is the
possibility of maintaining institutions which are essential to the age
in which we live; gone is the possibility of organizing and equipping
that northern territory in a way
which will serve properly the people
who will make it their homes; gone,
in a word, Is the hope of the Manl-
toban that our province should be,
at least, equal to the others In the
Dominion.    These things  being    so
manifest, I ask the house with full
confidence to decline, as is proposed
in the resolution now before us, the
offer, as submitted by the government at Ottawa, and to further resolve that we shall never take that
which is less in principle than what
the other provinces enjoy as members of the federation of Canada."
Liberals Agree
Valentine Winkler, Liberal member for Rhineland, in the unavoidable absence of Mr. Norris, leader of
the Opposition, seconded the resolution, with which he stated the Opposition was in perfect agreement.
The resolution then carried unanimously.
 ;£)	
I. G. Ruttle, just returned from
the Lnited States, says that there Is
going to be the biggest immigration to the prairies from North Dakota ever. They are coming in thousands. General Passenger Agent
Foster, of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad, says that during March
and April immigrants from Europe
will number six hundred to one
thousand daily. Most are for the
prairie provinces, though a good
many will go to British Columbia.

PITCAIRN'S PEOPLE
How Decendants of the Bounty Mutineers
Fare on Lonely
Island
About One Hundred and Fifty People Have Homes There—Are
in  Good  Health
dur was Mrs. Christian. She stated
that Mr. Christian, now 91 years of
age, was the oldest inhabitant. He
is a grandson of the original
Fletcher Christian, who was the
leader of the mutineers of the
Bounty, and first landed on the Island with eight other Englishmen
and six Polynesian women. Mrs.
Christian said the health of ah the
inhabitants was remarkably good,
and there was no desire to leave
their  solitary  home.
The Glaseow barque Wendur
called at Plymouth recently with
the latest of the scanty news that
from time to time reaches the outside world of the inhabitants of
Pitcairn Island, the lonely little
speck of land in the Pacific between
Australia and South* America, where
the descendants of the Bounty mutineers  are still living.
It was late on the night of November 19 last, says Captain G. H.
Blackstock, of the Wendur, when
the barque was driving ahead at
about eight knots, that his lookout
man was startled by being baled.
There had been no sign of shipping
for days, and in the solitary ocean
waste they did not expect to be challenged by a human voice asking the
name of the ship.
Again the cry rang out, and then
in the brilliant moonlight they saw
a crowded small boat. At first it
was thought there had been a shipwreck, and that these were the survivors. Captain Blackstock bad his
ship hove to, and then the boat
came along side, the occupants,
seventeen men and one woman,
asking permission to come on
board.
They explained that they were
natives of Pitcairn Island, and had
covered sixteen miles in their frail
little craft just to intercept and exchange greetings with the Wendur,
which had been seen hours before
from their lookout from the mountain top.
Population 150
The visitors, says Captain Black-
stock, were particularly homely,
very polite and hospitable. They
said that on an average thay only
saw twenty vessels annually. At
present there are 150 inhabitants
on Pitcairn Island, women being in
tbe great majority. The men depend for supplies on trading fruit
with passing vessels for clothes,
whilst money collected from passing
ships is given to the women, who
buy clothing from a schooner which
conies once a year to the Island.
The  woman who  visited  the Wen-
It was in April, 1789, that the
crew of the Bounty, who had been
sent by the government to Tahiti,
to collect bread fruit plants for the
West Indias, rose against Captain
Bllgh, who was in command, and
set him adrift with eighteen men in
an open boat. In 1790, nine of the
mutineers under their ringleader,
Captain Christian, made their home
on Pitcairn Island. The islands is
only two and one half miles long
and a mile wide. In the center Is a
hill 1,008 feet high. The soil is
fertile, producing yams, bread fruit,
bannans,  sweet  potatoes, etc.
OPENED PARK HOTEL

This Fall
TO   TEST   WITH   SCULLS
Quite a number 'of Victoria
sportsmen have become well known
along the Pacific Coast, but it is not
often that one of them is given an
opportunity to secure national fame.
Such, however, is the chance offered W. N. Kennedy, champion
sculler of British Columbia and the
Pacific Coast.
Lou Scholes, champion of America and winner of the Diamond sculls
at Henley is matched to race Des-
Brisay, of Nelson, and Lang, of
Vancouver, at Nelson on July 1. He
will  also  race  in  Vancouver.
Victoria sportsmen, as soon as
they heard of this, arranged to have
Scholes appear here. When picking
a contestant for him the choice naturally fell on Kennedy. Kennedy is
young, but is a finished sculler, and
It would be interesting to see what
kind of a race he would give
Scholes.
It is planned to pull the race off
on the Shflwnigan Lake course some
time in June, or at least before
Scholes races in Nelson, which he
will do on Dominion day. If the
event takes place after the one in
Nelson, it will interfere with the
N. P. A. A. regatta, which will be
held in Portland about the middle
of July and which the Bays always
enter in full force.

Headquarters for tourists visiting
Jasper Park this summer will be at
Prairie Creek, the present head of
steel on the Grand Trunk Pacific,
sixty-five miles west of Edson. At
this point, Lesle Zohrab has just
completed the erection of a twelve-
room hotel which will furnish accommodation for tourists who art
anxious to behold the wonders of
the future niecca f mountain
climbers, and seekers of summer
recreation in closest possible touch
with  mother nature.
Although Fitzhugh, situated at
mile 112, is to be the park townsite,
steel on the Grand Trunk Pacific
will not reach this point until some
time next fall and until that time
the jumping off place for tourists
and prospectors will be at Prairie
Creek, right on the boundary of
Jasper Park, as Fitzhugh will be
the only town laid out inside the
park limits. Mr. Zohrab is fitting
up his hotel with all the modern
conveniences and is shipping in the
best of furniture and table service
with a view of making it attractive
to the traveller. He has large
stores at Prairie Creek and as soon
as the trails become favorable the
freighters, Brewster and Moore, of
Banff, whose services Mr. Zohrab
has secured, will commence to operate pack trains between Prairie
Creek and Tete Jaune Cache. These
pack trains will be at the disposal
of any travellers who may be going
Into the country north or west of
Prairie Creek this summer, and
there will be horses there to carry
complete camp equipment wherever
a tourist or a prospector wishes to
go.
Prairie Creek is tlie fording place
of the Athabasca River, on the trail
to the north country. The Indians
from Smoky River have been coming in there this winter and bringing their winter's catch of furs with
them. Mr. Zohrab, who came to Edmonton from the west recently,
brought with him quite a number
of these furs.
The Choral Society met last evening in an "At Home" given for the
purpose of marking the close of the
first year of the organization. During the evening the conductor, Mr.
J. E. Davey, was presented with a
baton in recognition of his services.
Miss Frond, who has acted as accompanist, was also remembered,
being presented with a gold bracelet. An enjoyable evening was spent
together.
A sale of work will be held by the

LAST   YEAR
REAL ESTATE OWNERS IN
Western   Canada
MADE
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures
obtainable, over One Hundred Million Dolars was made by real eBtate
owners in growing cities and towns
of Western Canada last year. This
vast wealth was exclusive of Improvements and represented actual
increase in land values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg Free  Press prove that In
eight Western Canadian Cities the
value of land alone—not counting
improvements—increased 562 per
cent for the last five years—an annual Increase of 112 per cent for
each city during the last five years.
These figures indicate that investments in live, growing cities in Western Canada are as safe and sure as
an investment can be, and that 100
per cent profit each year Is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THEY   WILL   UNDOUBTEDLY
MAKE $100,000,000 MORE
You have an oportunlty now to
participate in these Immense profits
by being one of the original purchasers of town lots in the Grand
Trunk Pacific addition to the fast
growing Western Canadian cities,
otherwise known as
GRAND    TRUNK    PACIFIC    RAIL-
WAV  DIVISION POINTS
WATROUS,   MELVILLE,   WAIN-
WRIGHT, BIGGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing Division Points and In the town-
site of Tofield an opportunity for the
investor to share In tho large profits
that are sure to accrue as a result
of the rapid and substantial growth
that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division Points and well located
cities and towns In Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not
offer townsltes or additions so located as to make Investments in them
of questionable value. The object In
selling these lots at the low prices
at which they are offered Is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which the Grand Trunk
Pacific will derive vastly more benefit than from  the sale of lots.
Now Is the time to buy. Choice
lots range from $100 upwardB on
easy payments of 10 per cent cash
and 10 per cent a month. You make
your purchase direct and secure title
from the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company. Write for literature
and make your selection   while   the
prices  are  extremely  low  and    the
possibilities unlimited.    Address
