License Commissioner Merryfield Clashes
With Mayor Over Adjournment.
His Worship Proceeds With Business
Although lie Alone Voted on
the Applications
At a stormy session of tlie license
board silting as a court yesterday
morning his worship the mayor voting alone decided to grant licenses
to Corley & Burgess in tbe Royal
hotel premises and A. J. Prudhomme.
The regularity of the proceeding is
being called in question and will
probably have to be settled.
The situation created was a peculiar one. Of the three commissioners, Aid. Smith was absent, only two
being in the city. Mayor Stork and
J. E. Merryfield. A sitting was held
on Saturday afternoon in compliance
with the resolution passed at the
former meeting. Mr. Merryfield desired an adjournment until Aid.
Smith returned. His worship on the
other hand wished to go on with the
Mr. Merryfield moved an adjournment,, which was voted against by the
mayor. The mayor thereupon declared the motion lost and after some
further discussion his worship proceeded to take up the Corley & Burgess aplication. Mr. Merryfield protested against dealing with any of
them, but his worship was equally as
determined to proceed and in the end
cast a ballot for it and declared the
license granted.
Further discussion followed and in
the end bis worship consented to an
adjournment until Monday morning
at 10 o'clock consenting to have the
record of the grant of the license expunged.
An adjournment was then taken
until yesterday morning.
Yesterday's sitting
Sharply on time with Mayor Stork
and Mr. Merryfield of the commission
alone present, Aid. Smith not having
returned . the council proceeded to
Commissioner Merryfield said that
he was of the same opinion as on
Saturday that these applications
should all stand over for the present.
The mayor said that he was not
agreeable to that course. The commission should not work any hardship upon those who were ready to
proceed with business. Aid. Smith
knew of the meeting on Saturday a
month before. He himself had postponed going away In order to lie present al it. He would likely go away
"How long will you be away?"
asked Commissioner Merryfield.
His Worship said he might be
away for some time.
Commissioner Merryfield pointed
out that under the statute an alderman could be appointed as acthig
mayor and could fill this duty as well
as the mayor.
Might Postpone Trip
His worship said he did not have
to go away at once. He could delay
his trip he supposed. He felt however that they had a quorum and
could go ahead now with business.
Commissioner Merryfield asked if
he said he would not proceed with
the business what would be the result.
Ills worship said he would Insist
upon going on and tbe business
would proreed.
Commissioner Merryfield pointed
out that when he was up the river
the commission adjourned until he
returned. He felt therefore that they
had a right as an act of courtesy to
wait for Aid. Smith. He did not feel
like taking a step that would turn
down all these licenses.
Corley & Burgess
His Worship then announced they
would proceed with the applications.
The first was that of Corley & Burgess.
Commissioner Merryfield wished to
hear from the representatives of the
' A. Carss, who represented the applicants, said he did not want to do
anything which would endanger his
clients' application. He did not wish
to withdraw the application If It
could be granted and go to the expense of advertising over again.
However, he did not want to have his
clients kept out of their license for
a year.
His worship said the applications
were before them and proceeded to
Commissioner Merryfield objected

bridge, has been apointed a

to the proceedings.    He pointed out
that  there  had  been  no  motion  to
proceed with the applications.
Adjournment .Moved
His worship contended that he
could put such a motion, when Mr.
Merryfield contended that his worship did not put his (Merryfield's)
motion to adjourn.
His worship said he did not un
derstand that any motion of that
kind was put forward, but if Mr.
Merryfield would so move he would
put it.
Commissioner Merryfield moved
an adjournment until Monday next.
The vote being taken, Commissioner Merryfield voted for and the
mayor against, whereupon the mayor
declared the motion lost.
Mr. Carss again stated that Corley
& Burgess were anxious to get their
license as early as possible.
Mr. Merryfield contended that his
worship was taking a wrong course
and pointed out that the license of
these men was being endangered.
Why should it be endangered. The
mayor had not had a motion carried
agreeing to take a vote. It was a
case of "bluffing" this thing through
over him   (Merryfield).
Act  Appealed To
The question of the proper proceeding being raised the section of
the act was read governing the matter.   It was as follows:—
"All questions coming before the
licensing court shall be decided by
a majority of the board of licensing
commissioners then present, including the chairman; and in the event,
of the votes of all members of the
licensing court being equally for or
against the question, the question
shall be negatived."
His worship's ballot was then east
"yes" and with no other ballot cast
his worship declared the license
granted. ,
The next application the mayor
said was that of A. J. Prudhomme.
Commissioner Merryfield said he
was not going to he "bluffed" into
this.    He was leaving the board.
Suiting the action to the word,
Mr. .Merryfield withdrew from his
His worship having cast a ballot
for granting the license declared it
accordingly granted.

Opinion Regarding Hazelton District Given By One Who
is Familiar With Every Part of B.C. Gained
After Twenty Years Experience.
E. L. Kinman, who has general
supervision over the work on the Silver Cup mine, owned by local interests, and who is operating himself
the Four Mile, all close to Hazelton,
has gone south for the winter. He
took passage by the Prince George
last evening and will not return until next spring.
Speaking of the country, Mr. Kinman says he has no doubt whatever
but next year will see a tremendous
rush into the Hazelton district. The
mining outlook warrants such a move
and he feels satisfied that it will become the great mining centre of the
north next seaspn.
After twenty years spent in the
various camps of the province, Mr.
Kinman is in a position to speak with
some authority on the subject. He
says that without doubt the Hazelton camp rs the best he has seen. The
values  when   taken   in   conjunction
already done to exploit the vein there
Is no doubt as to the rich returns to
be derived. Samples taken across
the vein which is in places as wide as
eleven feet run Into values as high
as $300 or $400 a ton. The ore
varies from about $7 or $8 a ton to
about $600 a ton so that a high
average can be counted upon. Mr.
Kinman isn aturally elated over the
prospects. The mine is within easy
reach of Hazelton, being four miles
as the name implies from that point.
A start will be made next spring in
shipping the ore being conveyed by
wagon to the shipping point on the
river. When the railway line is completed the mine will be only about, a
mile from the rails so that the shipping will be a very simple matter.
While Mr. Kinman is elated over
the outlook on his own properties
he says that the whole country is rich
in mineral.    It is in fact as before
with the immense bodies of ore will   stated the best he has seen anywhere
make it a great producer.
At Four Mile he has confined his
work this season almost altogether
to surface work and is ready for an
early start next spring. He will put
about 30 men at work opening up the
prospect and judging from the work
in the province. The Silver Cup is a
magnificent property and has demonstrated its worth already. There are
many others In the district that will
give as good results and the country
should be a very heavy producer in
the next few years.

Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia,    t
Barkerville.—Potatoes are now 12
cents a pound in town and very
scarce at that Eggs are $1,25 a
dozen. There appears to be a scar-
clty of hay, too, which stands at $80
per ton, but is almost unprocurable.
Oats are 7 cents, while northwest imported oats are  10 cents per pound.
Victoria.—Mr. J. P. McLeod lias
been appointed deputy attorney-general of the province In succession to
Mr, II. A. MacLean, who recently resigned in order to go into the private
practice of law. Mr. McLeod has
been acting as deputy attorney-general for some time, and is now confirmed in the position. He will also
retain his former position of inspector of legal offices.
Nelson.—Details of the big deal by
which Carney Bros. & Gardiner, of
Kaslo, will, it is said, reap a fortune,
are given by A. Carney, father of the
members of the firm bearing that
name. The subject of the deal is the
great coal and iron deposits about
two miles north of eBrmis, on the
Crow's Nest aPss line on the Alberta
side of the boundary, which extend
northward  for about  four  miles.
The St. Paul syndicate concerned
has $5,000,000 capital, chiefly English, which it is putting up for a half
interest in the coal measures and in
sixty square miles of timber. The
syndicate guarantees $3,000,000 for
the construction of a railway from
Shelby Junction, on the Great Northern, northward, which will eventually be extended to Calgary, and $1,-
000,000 for the development of the
coal fields. The acceptance of the
coal measures was turned over to
Carney Bros. & Gardiner with a guarantee that their interest would be
paid for in cash or stock. The iron
measures will probably be the basis
Of a separate deal, and matters are
quiescent in that regard, pending the
formation of a company.
Barkerville.—The Lightning Creek
Hydraulic company have now about
one hundred men working on the
construction of the new ditch from
the Milk Ranch pass to Amador creek
on Lightning creek. Work is being
pushed ahead as fast as possible in
order to have the ditch finished by
fall. 1 he company hopes to begin
operations on the °uuth Wales claim
in tbe spring next year. A 400-foot
rock drive is to be I un during the
winter nnd it is the imention of the
management to In^.a! hydraulic elevators next summer.
Nelson.—The failure of the council
of Nelson to take part in it territorial
movement for the settlement of the
arable lands in the Kootenay country
stirs the Nelson News to some sharp
criticism. The News says that Cal
-gary has grown in five years from
a community of ten thousand souls io
one of thirty thousand. Lethbridge
has grown from two thousand (o ten
thousand in the same time. Five
years of development In Southern Alberta has done tliis for Calgary and
Lethbridge. The News thinks that
five years of like development could
be accomplished in the Kootenay
Which has greater resources than
Southern Alberta, and that Nelson
might show the same growth as Calgary. Nelson as the metropolis of
the district should take the lead in
promoting the progress of agriculture in the Kootenay.

Victoria.—For a considerable period Dr. G. A. B. Hall, medical health
officer of the city, has been devoting
careful study to ways and means to
combat the recent alarming visitation to the city of the dread disease
kuown as infantile paralysis. lie has
studied all the authorities who deal
with diseases of a similar character
and has arrived at some important
conclusions In the matter.
Some days ago Dr. Hall addressed a circular letter to all the physicians of the city asking them to
give him a detailed statement of the
number of cases of infantile paralysis
they had treated or are treating, to
gether with Information as to their
success in combatting the disease.
Tliis step on the part of the medical health officer Is preliminary to
asking the authorities to declare that
the disease Is one which ought to be
classed as "Infectious." He has
reached the conclusion that infantile
paralysis spreads through contagion
and believes thai it may be stamped
out if the cases, as soon as they appear in the community, are isolated
and treated with as great care as are
the well known infectious diseases of
the \Irulenl type.
Dr. Hall, who was for many years
a resident of Nelson, B.C., says that
in thai city about four years ago
there was an outbreak of Infantile
paralysis and he therefore had an
opportunity of familiarizing himself
with its main characteristics. He has
supplemented this knowledge with

Miles McLeod, one of the flrst unknowns to be mentioned as the

from his home In Albzany, Mo., and
has undertaken to show a few person interested in finding a man who
can dethrone Champion Jack Johnson that he knows something about
the fighting game by boxing with
Joe Choyinski, the veteran who trained Jeffries for his last battle.
The "Show me" aspirant for pugilistic honors is a giant of 6 feet 5
inches and weighs 225 pounds. He
is 28 years old and is strong as a
bull, while his health has not been
Impaired in any way by smoking or
drinking. McLeod asserted that unless he Is convinced he can whip
Johnson he will never come forward
with an offer to fight him.
"I feel reasonably sure I can beat
that fellow for I have boxed since I
was ten years old, and I know something about the fine points of the
game. I believe I can hit as hard as
Johnson and I know I can take a
deal more punishment. I do not
have to enter the profession to make
a living, as I have a farm in Albany
which pays a living income.
"Before I left for Chicago I had
been doing some road work and boxing to get into shape to box with
some one upon my arrival, and I am
glad to have the opportunity to box
with a fighter like Choynski. I am
sure he can do a lot for me by teaching men some of the finer points and
a defense which will block most of
Johnson's blows.
"I want to meet at least three men
before I battle Johnson for there Is
not going to be a repetition of the
Jeffries-Johnson fight, with me playing the role of Jeffries. I want to
see for myself whether I will be able
to exchange wallops with this fellow, and if I am satisfied In my own
mind, then I will seek a match with

October and November will be
busy months in pugilistic circles in

Bay, near that city have been announced and are as follows:—
Billy Papke, the claimant of the
In some respects the heavyweight
wrestling situation resembles the
pugilistic field. The mat champion,
Gotch, is not being besieged with
challengers from every town and
country as is Johnson, but there are
two men now active who claim that
they are Justified in asking for a
match. They occupy about the same
places ln regard to the wrestling
title as do Kaufman and Langford
ln the pugilistic field. Perhaps
Hackenschmidt and the Indian
wrestler Gama have more enthusiastic backers than the two boxers.
At any rate both the Russian and
the Indian have signified their intention of coming to this country In the
winter and seeking a match with
Gotch. A regular report creeps forth
in dull times that the champion has
retired. Sometimes it goes ignored
and frequently the monotony is still
further varied by an immediate denial.
If Gama and Hackenschmidt come
here this winter some city should see
an interesting bout. Before either of
them draws Gotch into an encounter
they will probably be matched
against each other. Hackenschmidt
was in Australia last winter. A report states that a California fight
promoter cabled to the Russian saying that he had secured Gotch's consent to a match, and advising Hackenschmidt to come here. The latter
part of November has been mentioned as a possible date.
Gama was a sensation for a time
in London. He had defeated every
good man in India and came to London seeking new worlds to sit on.
He was unable to get a match until
Dr. F. B. Roller of Seattle, appeared.
Gama defeated Roller in short order
and Roller had two ribs broken during the contest.
Gama is a big man, weighing 210
pounds. He measures 18 inches about
the neck, 48 inches around the
chest and has a 27-inch thigh. He desires to meet Gotch.

Small Band  of Indians Recall  Fierce
Warfare of Early
Humus  Were Almost  Exterminated
in Conflicts—Small Band
In the blue book on Indian affairs,
in some respects the most Interesting
of all our governmental publications,
are incorporated the reports of the
agents In charge of the reservations
on which dwell those Redmen who
are still the wards of the nation. One
of these reports comes from Lorette,
nine miles above Quebec City, where
?dwells the principal remnant of the
Huron Tndians. That report Is
brief, although very satisfactory,
If read by the light of history It tells
of a national tragedy, of the humbling and almost etxerminatlon of a
people, who made peace and war,
whose support was eagerly sought
and gladly accepted by one of the
great pioneer powers on this continent, and who at the zenith of their
glory dominated over a large area
now included within Eastern Canda.
They formed a branch of the great
Iroquois-Huron family, although
they had become deadly enemies at
the time of the settlement of Canada by the French.
When In 1535 Jacques Cartier
visited Stadacona (Quebec) and
Hochelaga (Montreal) he found at
both places large Indian towns, prosperous, well built, after the manner
of savages, and with considerable of
the appearance of permanency and
propriety. Seventy-three years later
in 1608, Champlaiu visited these
spots and he found that the towns
had disappeared. What fate overtook them is not known with certainty, but those who have studied the
matter are of the opinion that after
the visit of Cartier the original pos-
sesors of the soil, who were Iroquots-
Hurons, had been driven to the south
and west by the Algonquins, an entirely different nation between whose
language and that of the Iroquols-
Hurons there was as great a difference, observede the learned Abb
Falllon, as between French and
Chinese. However that may re,
when the French began to make permanent settlements ln the valley of
the St. Lawrence the Iroquols-Hu-
rons had entirely disappeared from
that region and had separated and
become implacable enemies. The Iroquois then possessed what is now the
central part of the state of New
York; the Hurons dwelt nl the country bordering on the lake and named
after them and on Lake Slmcoe in
the central part of the province of
Ontario. The Iroquois formed a confederacy based on democratic lines
and known as the Five Nations until, ln much later years, they were
joined by the Tuscaroras, and the
Five Nations thus became Six.
The Hurons, who the historian Sa-
gard says, might well be styled the
"nobles" among savages because of
their more aristocratic form of government, were, like the Iroquois,
wise In council, brave in war, and
also extremely successful In the cultivation of the soil. They raised
large quantities of maize (Indian
corn); they laid up large supplies of
cured fish and meat, and they built
permanent dwellings of wood, rude
lo    be    sure,   and uncomfortable In
comparison with the dwellings of
civilized races, but infinitely better
than the dwellings of most of the
other aborigines of this part ot
As to the numbers, estimates vary
great'y. The historian Ferland gives
them a population of 15,000 souls.
Bonchette thinks it was fully 0,000.
They called themselves Wyandattes
or Wyandottes, but the French named them Hurons It Is said from their
style of wearing their hair—erect
and thrown back, giving their head,
writes the historian Ferland, the appearance of a head of a boat—"une
hure a sangller."
Family quarrels are proverbially
bitter, and as the Hurons and the
Iroquois were related, It may be that
that fact to some extent accounts for
the implacable hatred the two nations felt for each other, and this
hatred was Intensified by the fact
that in the Iroquois wars with the
French the Hurons took the side of
the enemy of their relatives soutii of
Lake Ontario.
The Iroquois, therefore, resolved
to exterminate the Huron nation, and
they succeeded to the extent of completely breaking their power and
driving them from their lands about
Lake Simcoe.
The final overthrow of the Huron
nation took place In the years 1648
and 1649, when the Iroquois swooped down upon them like the wolf on
the fold and slew and tortured with
all cruelty and ferocity of which the
savage nature was eapable. The history of that war is simply a chapter
of horrors, and in that volume of
Parkman, entitled "Jesuits in Nortb
America," it is set forth in all its
vivid details.

Local News
Developments within the past few
weeks in the transportation prospects
for the north Indicate that no time is
lo he lost liy Prince Rupert to secure
a firm foothold upon the business of
this New British Columbia. In order
t.o do so there must likewise he no
lost time in developing the city and
pushing it to the front place from
which it will never recede.
It now looks as though the interests back of the Portland Canal Short
Line are going to eventually build
another road farther north than the
G. T. P. Whether Stewart or some
other point is to be the ocean terminus it matters not to Prince Rupert. The building up of another
port in the north is going to have
its effect.
Prince Rupert has a good start.. It
has advantages that will place It
ahead of all rivals if the citizens hut
work together to make It the metropolis. There must be no delay and
no division if the business Is to be
anchored here. Substantial warehouses are going up in the city which
are exceedingly welcome. N,o Industry that can be drawn here should
be allowed fo slip. There are those
who are attempting to "knock"
Prince Rupert on the outside and
there are plenty of them without any
assistance from the inside. It is a
case of anchoring business here in
every line.
For that reason we feel that It Is
high time for the council to devise
ways and means to affect a settlement of the assessment matters with
the G. T. P., and thus ensure greater
activity on the part of that company
than now prevails. There are reasons
for believing that the company will
not move towards djoing work here
that would mean considerable to the
city until a settlement is reached.
The members of the council are In
possession of the facts connected
with the situation and which are not
fully known to the general public. It
shknild surely be possible to devise
some means of putting machinery in
motion that will result in an understanding.
This is one means of advancing the
city's interests which should not be
overlooked. Prince Rupert, like
every other place that amounts to
anything commercially, will have to
fight its way at some stage of the
game. It is an opportune time to
commence now and by every means
at hand push forward the city's Interests. We do not want to unduly
force the hand of the council, but
surely there is some excuse for being
anxious for some move.

Hon. F. L. Carter-Cotton, late
chairman of the provincial executive
and for many years prominent In the
politics of Britisli Columbia, will contribute a history of the politics of the
province to a general history of Canada and its progress, which is to be
issued in twelve volumes by the Dominion company, publishers of the
"Dominion of Canada." Mr. Carter-
Cotton has been identified with the
political history of British Columbia
for tiie last twenty years, when he
was returned as the first member for
Vancouver to the provincial parliament, and since then has occupied a
position in various provincial administrations. Professor Adam Short,
civil service commissioner, and Dr.
A. ('. Doughty, Dominion archivist,
are tiie edtors of the publication, and
a series of most Interesting and most
valuable articles will lie contributed
to the work from the pens of some
of tiie best known men, which will
make It one of. the most valued additions lo tiie shelves of any library,
and on,- oi' the best books of refer-
ence on the Dominion.
Among the British Columbia contributions to tiie work will lie:—

When the R. M. S. Empress of India sails on Wednesday for Hongkong she will carry forty Chinese deported as a result of the investigation which resulted In their detection
in a scheme to defraud the government of the head tax. The forty
Chinese were spurious "merchants."
Special Officer Foster of the Dominion Secret Service and David Lew,
his interpreter, had discovered an
agency with headquarters at Hongkong and Vancouver which brought
in lareg numbers of Chinese as merchants, and the sudden suspension
of Yip On, the interpreter at Vancouver was made just before the Empress of China arrived, the. investigators having boarded the steamer at
Victoria, and discovered 2 2 Chinese
with letters addressed to the interpreter, each provided with passports
and many with fake drafts for various sums. Enquiry developed that
the Chinese were shipped by the
agent at Hongkong to the agent at
Vancouver, each being provided with
a letter of identification.
For some time past the "merchants" had been brought in by this
method the government being defrauded of a sum calculated at a million dollars. Irregularities in the issuing of the passports were also discovered It being learned that the
passports issued by the viceroy of the
Two Kwang provinces of South
China at the yamen at Canton were
secured without the applicant appearing in person; in fact, the passports'were peddled to intending passengers by this underground route,
where photographs were then affixed
to them and the vise of the British
consul at Canton was secured. In
a number of cases Ihe holder of the
passporl did not even appear at the
consulate. The Chinese gained little [
by the scheme. They paid 1,100 dol-[
lars (Mexican) for being landed, being given their passage and a let-j
ter to tiie Vancouver agent, who
passed them as merchants, a class
exempted from payment of the head
tax. Had the Chinese come to Canada as immigrants Ihe expense of
landing would have been but $00
more than they bad lo give up.
The eighteen suspects taken from
Hie Empress of India were questioned al length yesterday at the Immigration building. They loiel various
stories, but the Investigators showed that they were not merchants.
Fifteen of the number were bearers
of letters to the Vancouver Interpreter, identifying them, and three of
I lie number carried a letter covering
the trio. All had sums of gold,
mostly varying from $Hin to $500,
and one had a genuine draft for $400
while tow others had bogus drafts.
They had passports issued by the
viceroy of the Two Kwangs. The
usual story told was that an uncle
had secured the passport, and usually
it was an uncle who had appeared
before the British consul to get his
certificate. The "merchants," however, had a scant knowledge of business. Asked of their prospects they
usually said that if they found any
business worth doing they would
cable to "their uncle" for money.
Asked regarding the business they
had in China they told various tales,
glittering generalities, and each said
that lie was not familiar with fhe details of the business—"the bookkeeper had attended to that."
The business was a profitable one
to the two men engineering the
scheme, the one at Hongkong, Ihe
other at Vancouver. They cleared
approximately $490 on each man
landed, and the two shipments captured by the detective and his inter-
pi eter would have netted them In
Ihe neighborhood of $20,000. Approximately they secured an average of $10,000 with the arrival of
each steamer. The business has,
however, doubtless, been ended now,
as cables have probably been sent to
the Hongkong agent to stop further
forwarding the shipments, as the letter referred to them. The letters
brought by the "merchants" referred
to them as "goods." The Empress
of India left Hongkong the day the
twenty-two were apprehended on the
Empress of China and there was no
time, therefore, to cable to Intercept
ihe eighteen "merchants" who arrived by that steamer to fall into
the hands of the officials on arrival.
All will be deported and it is probable that new regulations will be suggested, perhaps the appointment of a
Canadian immigration agent at
Hongkong or Canton to oversee the
intending passengers. Recently a
change was made in t.he certificates
of identification of outgoing passengers who intended to return, it being
made compulsory to attach their
photographs to the certificates. Probably the finger print system will also
be brought into force.
Some good detective work has
been done during the investigation.
While the 22 men captured on the
Empress of China were in the detention shed at Vancouver one of them
who had held out that his name was
not that mentioned in the letter he
carried for the interpreter was neatly
cornered. A letter addressed to him
by the name mentioned in the letter
was thrown into the window, in
which the writer said that he was
too closely watched to communicate
with him, but encolsed a blank piece
of paper in case the recipient wanted
to reply. He was to pass the window the following morning at nine
o'clock to pick up the reply. That
night the Chinese was searched and
the letter found on him. He was
asked how he came to pick up the
letter if the name on the envelope
was not his own—and he then broke

Proposition  of  Mr.  A.  E.  Watts of
Kootenay to His Employees
In a letter to tbe Nelson, B.C.,
News, Mr. A. E. Watts, president of
the Wattsburg Lumber company, explains his proposal to Interest his
employees in co-operating with him
in the conduct of his business. He
The Wattsburg Lumber company
Limited, are irrigating several sections of land at Wattsburg and are
dividing it into small farms for employees who desire to make permanent homes. Lumber and materials
for building houses, barns, etc., will
be supplied at wholesale prices on
time. Any employee can become a
landowner without capital, as easy
terms will be given for payment for
any reasonable length of lime from
one to twenty years on condition that
eight per cent interest per annum
is paid and n deposit of 6 per cent
"i purchase price of land nnd buildings.
It has already been proved by
years of experiments that $500 to
$1,000 worth of produce can be
grown per acre on the land under
irrigation With a small piece of land
under cultivation a man can raise
With very little labor enough to support a family, and there will always
be a free range for cattle on the adjoining hills, and, by keeping a cow,
a few pigs, poultry, etc., he may be
practically Independent In a few
years if he will pay attention to
mixed farming Which, with the aid of
irrigation, always ensures a crop that
will pay.
Small fruits can be grown in abundance for which there will always be
a good market Vegetables for pickle
making nlso make a profitable crop
and the company will undertake to
purchase all surplus produce that can
be grown in that line at the highest
market price and will provide canning, preserving and pickling works
for that purpose, so that no grower
need lose any part of his crop.
As a further inducement to white
men so that the company can dispense with colored labor, shares ln
the manufacturing business will be
given to- employees upon the face
value of which there has been pa'd
up three-fourths of the amount, leaving one-fourth to be paid by the holder. Profits will be divided as If the
shares were fully paid up and part
of the profits can go to pay for the
balance of the shares. Thus a man
can become the possessor of shares
and a partner in the business without
investing any capital. But it is not
intended to a'low any person other
than those employed In the business
to become shareholders, and as a
safeguard against the shares being
oil'ered for sale to the public they will
only be transferable from one shareholder to another. Any steady, industrious, while employee will be
given share certificates upon application in writing; the value and
amount of which will be determined
by his character and conduct for the
six moiilhs prior to his application.
The general impression prevails
that the milling business is a temporary or transitory occupation, but
In this case it need not be so, as
tho company already controls sufficient timber to keep Its mills in
operation' fifty years and Its other
Industries, such as sash and door
works, wood pipe works, etc., can be
carried on continuously.
Whether trade be good or bad
every effort will be made to provide
those who desire to make permanent
homes with steady employment. The
shares mentioned will be worth more
than their face value, as there will
be no watered stock. The value of
the company's property exceeds
three-quarters of a million dollars
and shares will only be issued for

The exodus from Dawson, Fairbanks and other northern camps has
commenced. The Princess Royal on
Saturday brought the first of the big
rush coming out for the winter and
during her stop In the city many acquaintances were renewed, for Prince
Rupert has a large number of former
residents of the north here. Every
berth on I lie steamer was taken.
Among those en route south was
Judge Wickersham of Fairbanks, one
of, the best known of the United
States judges in Alaska. J. B. Pattullo, of Dawson, crown prosecutor In
the northern capital, was also among
the arrivals, lie stopped off here with
his brother, Aid. T. D. Pattullo. Ho
will go soutii on Thursday.
Both the Hudson's Bay boats,
Port Simpson and Hazelton, left this
morning for Hazelton with full cargoes of freight and many passengers.
It is very doubtful whether liui
steamers will he aide to make another  trip  this  season,   bul   if  the
water is sufficiently high when they
return it is likely that the Hazelton
will make one more attempt to reach
the up river point.
The City of Seattle called last
night on her way to Skagway. The
falling off of passengers for the north
is very noticeable.
The Princess Beatrice was in thia
morning fnom Vancouver on her way
to Skagway. After discharging her
local freight at the G. T. P. dock
she pulled up to the Canadian Fish &
Cold Storage company wharf at Seal
Cove to unload some freight for the
Atlin Construction company there.

-he steamers Duke of Connaught
and Duke of Clarence, two three
funnel liners of the type of the Prin
cess Charlotte, are rurnored to be un
der construction in a Britisli ship
yard, the first to be ready next May
for the coasting service in British
Columbia waters of the Canadian
Northern Railroad company. The
source of these rumors is said to be
statements made by a British shipping man who made the trip north
on the steamer Prince Rupert. He
stated that he had learned that the
two steamers were laid down at a
British shipyard before he left and
the first was to be delivered ln May.
The two Duke liners, he said, were
to be the equivalent of the Princes
and Princesses in service in British
Columbia waters. It was intended
to use them In a coasting service between Victoria, Vancouver, Prince
Rupert and  Stewart.
For some time British shipping
papers have published paragraphs of
the expected construction of two vessels of this type for the Canadian
.Northern, but nothing lias been
learned locally to verify the statements. It has been gcnera'ly anticipated by shipping men that the Canadian Northern Railroad company
would soon enter Into the Britisli
Columbia coastwise service.
The sealing schooner Jessie of the
Victoria sealing fleet, has reported
from Akatan with 878 sealskins,
making a total of 1,110 for the season, on board. This is the biggest
catch for some seasons. Four other
sealers hunted In Behring sea from
Victoria and no report, has been received as yet from them.
The Newcastlc-on-Tyne city council has agreed to lease for seventy-
five years to Messrs. Armstrong.
Whllworth & Company, the shipbuilders, twenty-one acres of land at
Walker,  near  Newcastle,  at  the annual rent of £750.
The land adjoins forty-nine acres
already acquired by the firm, which
intends constructing on it a shipyard
and naval equipment yard to be capable of coping with the greatest
naval developments for years to come
The firm propose to spend £500,000
on equipment before any works of
costruction are begun on the twenty-
one acres now let.
According to Captain Newcombe,
commander of the Dominion Government cruiser Kestrel, which is now
lying in Vancouver harbor undergoing minor repairs, the fishing season in the Hecate Strait is practically at an end, and the boats which
have been frequently those waters
have left for southeastern Alaska.
The steamer Manhattan, of the New
New England Fish company, reached
port late Tuesday night from Alaskan waters, having aboard a catch of
100,000 pounds.
According to Captain Newcombe,
the season in the straits is always
the best in the spring and summer,
but in the winter the fish leave those
waters and go to southeastern Alaskan waters. Few boats are to be
found fishing in the straits at present.
It Is not known as present whether the wireless apparatus will be installed on the Kestrel at present. It
was stated several weeks ago that
the Kestrel was to be equipped with
apparatus, but as yet no word has
been received by the commander. The
Kestrel will be in port about a week
or ten days more and will then leave
for northern waters, where she will
spend the winter.

Norton Griffiths Advises British Inter
ests to Look to
Necessity     of    Introducing    English
Speaking Immigrants is Put
Strongly Forward
"Canada Is the country for prosperity."
Thus might be summed up the impressions of Mr. Norton Griffiths, M.
P, for Wednesbury, Staffordshire,
and founder of its namesake, the
new Canadian town.
Mr, Norton Griffiths arrived in
England, says a recent issue of the
London Express, and liis 8,000-mile
trip through Canada lias evidently
sent him back more optimistic than
ever in regard to the future of the
"Unless one has personally \isited
Canada it is impossible to realize the
greatues:s and posslblltles of the
country." he said to an Express representative last night.
"From east to west Canada today
is developing at a pace unbeaten in
the most progressive days of the
United States.
"It is essential that all people in
this country interested in trade and
commerce should realize, and that
quickly, the nature of Canada's progression. The main trunk railway
systems of the country have been
able only lately to pay attention to
the necessary branch lines and feeders, and as fast as they can lay them
the country is taken up by settlers on
land which, for wheat raising is
equal to any in the world.
"It is not progression of a temporary nature. Canada need feat no
set-back, for while a country can exchange corn for golden sovereigns
general prosperity must reign.
"The main point I should like be
emphasize, in the interests of the
commercial world In England, is that
Canada will become, as wel as an agricultural, an industrial community,
equalling eventually the United
States. It is in this industrial prospect that all good Canadian are anxious that the English should have
their share, and that they can only
secure this by doing what the Americans are doing—getting over the
tariff wall.
"Then they will be received with
open arms of welcome, and protected by a government which has for
its main policy the protection of its
young industries by tariff. No free
trade movement whatever exists in
"With regard to the new Wednesbury In Canada, I do not wish for the
moemnt to say more than that the
movement for encouraging non-charitable emigration from local centers
Is viewed by every single Canadian
with whom I had an opportunity of
discussing the matter, as one of the
most necessary steps in maintaining
the predominance of the real English article in Canada.
"That is what we are not doing,
ai any rate so far as recent emigration is concerned. Canada wants, and
can take, all the good Englishmen It
can get.
"A t present it is terrible to see the
number of foreigners who are pouring into the country, and even then
farmers have to give up land because
of the difficulty of getting efficient
The question of Colonial representation in Ihe imperial parliament also
•came under Mr. Griffiths' notice.
"There seems to be a feeling ln
Canada that one of the best things
the mother country rould do would
be lo admit colonial representatives
to parliament," he said.
Mr. Griffiths' travels extended to
Chill, as well as Canada, as his firm
are constructing Ihe new railway, at
a cost of over four millions, through
tin' former country. The question of
British trade relations with South
America '■nine under .\ir. Griffiths'
notice, and lie did not find the outlook comforting.
"Wc are losing ground there," he
snid. "Where we get one contract,
the French, or Germans, or Americans get two or three.
"They have a bargaining power
we don't possess; a power which one
gets only under a policy of tariff reform."
Company Operating Within a Short
Distance of Town of Stewart
A recent mining incorporation of
local interest is that of the Copper
Cliff Mines, Ltd., of Stewart, owning
three claims within a mile from the
easterly side-line of the town. The
company is incorporated for $250,-
000, in 1,000,000 shares of the par
value of 25 cents per share. The
officers and directors are: President,
J. Fred Ritchie, P.L.S.; vice-president, D. O. Lewis, of the engineering
staff of the Portland Canal Short
Line Railway; secretary, George A.
Clothier, A. B. Ritchie and John A.
Cameron, all of Stewart. The workings are located about. 300 feet altitude above the Bear river, and consist of a 36-foot crosscut tunnel
which is now being continued to
strike a well-defined three-foot vein.
Recent samplings gave an average
of $24 per ton ln gold, silver and
copper. Roy Clothier, who has a
50-foot contract, will continue the
crosscut until it encounters the ore
and then drift on the vein.
Premier McBride's Reply to the Application of the
Government of Province Takes Stand
Against Mongolians Coming
Into the Country
An application of unusual significance was that made to the executive
council at Victoria by the G. T. P.
railway company, through its solicitor, Mr. D'Arcy Tate. An order-in-
council was sought to permit the employment of Asiatic labor on the construction of the G. T. P. in British
Application was accompanied by a
newspaper clipping from the Manitoba Free Press of the 14th ultimo,
the gist of which was briefly, the alleged scarcity of labor in this westernmost province and its interference
with the natural and desirable progress of construction activity. This
article stated, as confirmed by President Chas. M. Hays, that such is the
labor situation in British Columbia,
and so acute the feeling against the
utilization of other than white labor
that it has been found impossible
to carry on construction within British Columbia beyond the completion
of the present contract held by Foley,
Welch & Stewart. The contractors
mentioned, it was further alleged,
had declined to take on any more
work from the British Columbia end,
claiming that under present conditions they are even now losing hundreds of dollars under their present
Supporting the application, the
railway company's solicitor, by correspondence, pointed out that under
the contract, between the company
and this province, bearing date of the
29th of December, 1908, and relating
to exclusive employment of white
labor in construction of the railway
through British Columbia, a reservation was made by which the government might sanction an abrogation
of the white labor clause in the event
of a sufficiency of white labor not
being found available.
The formal aplication, it was urged by Mr. D'Arcy Tate was made In
pursuance of an fnterview, had at
Victoria, an the 2nd ultimo, between
the premier and the attorney-general,
representing the province, and
Messrs. Hays, Smithers, Chamberlin
and Tate, on behalf of the company,
at which Mr. Hays stated that if permission were accorded for the employment of Asiatic labor, he would
enter Into an understanding not to
employ such labor while white labor
was available, and further to give
employment to all white labor offering for purposes of construction
work at the current rate of wages.
After careful consideration (lie
government decided to refuse the application as being inconsistent and
distinctly at variance with Its well
known policy of conserving British
Columbia, its resources and its industrial opportunities for white people.
The premier In particular pointed
out that the railway construction in

present there will be a torchlight tattoo of the troops at Aldershot on the
night of Saturday, June 27th next,
when the king and queen will be" in
residence at the new royal pavilion,
say Modern Society. This will be
followed by the great review of the
troops of the garrison, which is fixed
for the following Monday Their
majesties will return to London im
mediately after the conclusion of this
and will that evening give the first of
the several state dinner parties that
are to be held at Buckingham palace.
At this will be present such of tbe
distinguished guests as have then
arrived for the coronation, as well as
representatives of the different services and other officials at home. The
gala performance at the Royal Opera
house, Covent arden, will take place
on the eve of the coronation. Following the service in Westminster
Abbey will come the royal progress
through London, when the route followed will be substantially the same
as that taken by King Edward and
Queen Alexandra after their crowning. The evening of the following
day will see a state ball at Buckilng-
hani palace,
Friday may be devoted to a review
of the London units of the territorial
army in Hyde Park, or on the horse
guards' parade; while the week's
ceremonies will be brought to an end
on Saturday by a royal review of the
combined ships of the home and Atlantic fleets off Spithead. Every
ship in commission in home waters
will take part in this and it will take
the royal yacht some considerable
time to pass through the lines of the
war vessels. At night the fleet will
be illuminated from end to end,
while there will be a display of fireworks upon a mammoth scale on
Southsea common.
Room will have to be found in the
week's lengthy programme for the
reception of addresses at Buckingham palace from those numerous
bodies that have the right to present
themselves to the throne on such occasions, and the king and queen will
be kept constantly engaged in receiving calls from the distinguished
visitors who will be assembled in
London, and in returning them.
Visits to Scotland, Ireland and Wales
will follow as quickly on the heels of
the coronation as possible, and It is
anticipated that before 1911 Is at an
end their majesties will have visited
every one of the four quarters of the
United Kingdom.
It is not usual at a coronation for
foreign crowned heads to attend, and
thus it will probably be found that
the only reigning monarch to be present at the crowning of King George
in addition to the king of Norway,
who will attend by reason of his close
connection with the English royal
family, will be the king of Spain.
Most of the other monarchs of Europe will be represented by their
heirs. Thus there will be a very
notable array of crown princes present, Including those of Germany,
Greece,, Sweden, Denmark and Italy.
Russia will be represented by the
Grand Duke Michael, the Netherlands
by the- prince nonsort, and France by
its foreign minister. It is not yet
known who will represent the king of
the Belgians, and there is just, a possibility that King Albert, will decide
to attend In person. A special mission is expected to arrive from the
United States, and Mr. Roosevelt is
fairly certain to be at its head.
His majesty has not lost sight of
the fact that some amount of disappointment was caused at the funeral of tbe late king owing to the preponderance of the military element,
and he will take care that this reproach cannot be levelled at his
coronation. Special places will be allotted In Westminster Abbey to the
heads of every profession and calling, and special attention will be paid
lo the accommodation provided for
the members of the House of Commons.

Developments in the War Eagle
continued to be encouraging, there
having been increased tonnages on
the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th levels.
The country In which these ore
bodies are located has not been fully
prospected, and the future outlook Is
most promising. The Iron Mask developments had also been encouraging, one ore body having been opened
up by a crosscut from the 4th level of
the Center Star. The ore reserves of
the Center Star group were estimated at 245,640 tons. A centrifugal
pump with driving motor direct connected, a plant for making bullion
anodes, and additions to the lead refinery, had been installed at Trail.

Move Hade to Have Naval and Military
Tournament Put
All Parts of British Territory Will
Re Visited by Representative Force
Project    Involving   Expenditure   of
#10,000,000 Planned
Considerable interest Is being
taken in a scheme for a three yearB'
empire tour of a great naval and
military tournament. The details of
the enterprise provide for a naval
and military tournament somewhat
on the lines of that which takes place
annually in Loudon, but on a more
ambitious scale.
It will be a resume of actual life in
tbe British navy and army for the
past half century, depicting the uniforms, arms and accoutrements from
the early Victorian era to the present
There will be musical drives, physical drills, tent pegging and aerial
flights, each performance concluding with a spectacle entitled "The
Charge of the Light Brigade." In
this episode, given twice each day,
670 mounted troops will engage in an
arena three acres in extent, and in
each town visited the local Territorials and Boy Scouts will be invited
to take part.
Land transport will be effected as
far as possible by road, but where the
distance between centres exceeds
twenty miles the whole brigade will
entrain direct to its destination. Two
trains, each 200 yards in length, will
be required to carry tlie troops and
general staff. Four further trains,
each 175 yards in length and drawn
by two engines, will be required for
the horses. A seventh train will carry
the guns and baggage.
From a spectacular point of view
the tournament is to be conducted
upon a scale of great magnificence.
The complement consists of fifty officers and 550 men, the latter being
drawn entirely from the army reserve. Six hundred horses, twelve
field guns, ten baggage wagons,
seventy tents, two marquees, 2,000
rifles and carbines of various dates,
2,000 bayonets, a mile of canvas
"hoarding," and two motor pantechnicons are amongst the "properties"
being used. The officers and men,
with horses, guns and baggage wagons, when proceeding in military order, will form a cavalcade a mile and
a half ln length.
The cost of running the tournament is estimated to be over $12,500
per week. Preparations are being
hurried forward for 'rehearsals to
take place at Watford, Herts, where
grounds some acres in extent are being converted into a permanent camp
Easter Monday next, April 17,
1911, is the date fixed for the opening performance at Birmingham. The
towns to be visited in rotation are
Manchester, Liverpool, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh. Aberdeen, Newcastle, York, Doncasler, Cambridge,
Brighton, Portsmouth, Southampton,
Winchester, Taunton, Salisbury,
Exeter, Plymouth, Bristol and Cardiff. After that the second and third
tours of the smaller provincial towns
will be made, the Britisli programme
ending with ag rand display in London prior to the brigade embarking
for the colonies. Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the
Indian empire will each in turn be
"One of the principal objects of
the tour will be to stimulate and revive that ardent spirit of patriotism
which has distinguished the British
race in the past, and to hrlng home
to the hearts of the penple in the
various towns visited tbe urgent
necessity for defence and the duty
that devolves upon the citizen of the
empire to hold himself in readiness
to defend his country," runs the official announcement. The proceeds
of the undertaking are to be devoted
to naval and  military charities.
The $10,000,000 government irrigation project in New Mexico, which
will store 650,000,000 gallons of
water and inundate 180 square miles
of territory, is described by L, W,
Thavis in the October number of
Popular Mechanics.   He says;.—
"Having just completed the Roosevelt dam of the Salt river Irrigation
project in Arizona, the greatest engineering feat of the age, at a cost
of nearly $9,000,000, Uncle Sam will
now turn his attention toward the
construction of a similar project In
New Mexico. It will be a great reservoir at Engle, connecting two diversion dams, one located at eas-
burg and the other 120 miles north
of El Paso, Tex.
"The Engle reservoir and its diversion dams are intended to harness the waters of the Rio Grande
river and be of far greater magnitude than the Assuan dam of the
Nile river. Egypt is now reputed the
greatest irrigation project in the
world. The Engle reservoir alone
will bold twice as much water as
the Nile river project, will be forty
miles in length, and reach an average width of nearly four miles, varying from three to six miles. In it
will be stored approximately 650,-
000,000,000 gallons or 2,000,000
acre-feet of water. The entire flow
of the Rio Grande for three years
will be required to fill the reservoir.
The cost of the Engle dam will reach
far more than $10,000,000 when

Purchase of the
Sandwich Making       $
The following are useful recipes
for the lady who wishes to serve
something out of tbe ordinary In the
way of  sandwiches:
Use bread one to two days old,
and order tinned sandwich loaves
in order to save waste. Melt the butter to a "spreadable" consistency.
Use a very sharp knife and sharp
fancy cutters.
If sandwiches must be kept for
some time they may be served In
good condition if wrapped in a damp
cloth and placed In a tin,
Sandwiches  should  be  served  on
lates or In silver dishes on a lace
paper,  prettily  garnished,  and   they
should be small and thin.
Garnishes for Savory Sandwiches
Chopped truffle, pistachio nut, or
coraline pepper make pretty decorations for sandwiches.    A little of the
garnish should he strewed on the top
of each.
Tomato Butter Sandwiches
Ha'f a pound of butter, two dessertspoonsful of tomato sauce, one
small bunch of parsley. Scald the
parsley, strip it from the stalks and
rub it through a sieve. Pound all
the ingredients together, and it is
ready to use for sandwiches, or rolled
into balls with biscuits and butter.
Cheese and Watercress Sandwiches
Strip the leaves from the stalks,
having previously well washed the
watercress in several lots of salt and
water; sprinkle some buttered bread
with grated cheese and arrange the
watercress on it; cover with buttered bread and cut into shapes. Pile
the sandwiches round some watercress. Green butter may be substituted  for the cheese.
Cheese Sandwiches
The following two are suitable for
picnic lunches:
Pound the yokes of three hard-
boiled eggs with one ounce of butter, season with sayenne, add some
grated cheese and salt, and pound
all together.

Further Details of the Trial of Local
Man at Vancouver
Evidence of Prisoner Was That  He
Did Not Know the Gun
Was Loaded
After about four hours' deliberation the jury empanelled to consider
the shooting of .Joe Beaudoin by Alphonse Richer at Prince Rupert on
September 22, returned with a verdict of guilty of manslaughter, says
the News-Advertiser describing the
trial of the local man. Mr Justice
Murphy told them that it was open to
them to bring in a verdict of murder,
manslaughter or acquittal, and they
chose the middle course. Richer, who
Is a small sized French-Canadian,
rather rough and stubby in appearance, heard the verdict with calmness. Sentence was reserved till the
end of the assizes.
In the case of Alphonse Richer,
Mr. A. II. MacNeill, K.C., appeared
for tbe crown, and Mr. C. N. Haney
for the accused.
Tbe first witness called in the
morning was Dr. Tremayne of Prince
Rupert, who testified that he had
been summoned by Richer to come lo
his shack as he had accidentally shot
Beaudoin. He found Beaudoin lying in a serious condition, and ordered his removal to the hospital, where
he died a few hours later. The foi
lowing day Dr. Themayne made i
post-mortem examination and found
that a bullet had passed through
Beaudoin's liver and Jungs and bar.
lodged in the dlaphragn. Death
had  followed  internal  hemmorhage
Sergt. Regan of the Prince Rupert
police force, said he had been summoned by telephone by Richer, who
wanted him to come to his cabin, as
he bad shot his friend. He went
and assisted in Beaudoin's removal to
the hospital, and then asked Richer
how it had occurred. Richer talked
to Beaudoin in French, and the sergeant told him to cut it out and
speak iii English. At the same time
he warned him that anything he said
might be taken down and used in
evidence again him. Richer started
to cry and said "Ask the man if I
meant to shoot or not."    Beaudoin,
from  the  bed,  replied,  "You   d	
fool, you should not have done that."
Afterwards Richer went om v ith
the police officer, saying, "You need
not be afraid. I am not going to run
away from you." He added further
that lie and Beaudoin had been
drinking together the night before,
and Beaudoin had robbed him of $14.
They had quarrelled over it, and
Richer told the officer that if lie
would look through Beaudoin's
clothes he would find the money. He
looked through Beaudoin's clothes
and found nothing The next day in
the gaol Richer told him that he had
found in his own clothes the $14 he
hud accused Beaudoin of , taking.
Sergt. Regan produced in court the
shins worn by Beaudoin and showed where die fatal bullet had gone
through them.
Mr. Haney asked the court on the
evidence submitted to withdraw the
case from the jury.
"You needn't trouble yourself, Mr.
Haney," replied Mr. Justice Murphy,
"tiie case will go to the jury."
Mr. Haney then called Richer to
the box. In rather broken English
the prisoner told his story. He said
that two days before the shooting he
had met Beaudoin and they had some
drinks together. Beaudoin then asked him if he could go to his house
and slay, and Richer replied that he
had no objection. Beaudoin fell down
Intoxicated on Hie way and Richer
hud to carry him. Arrived at the
cabin, they made a supper of eggs
and after drinking some whisky that
Richer carried, Hey went to bed, The
following day they seemed to have
spent mostly in drinking, and when
they got up on Friday morning, while
Richer was handling a 22-calll,-:e
Winchester rifle it exploded, and
liejiudolu yelled, "You have shot me,
you have shot me." Rlchei asked
If he could do anything for him, and
Beaudoin replied, "Go for a doctor or
I die sure." He went for a doctor
and the court knew the rest.
In cross-examination lie told Mr.
.MacNeill that the conversation about
the $14 occurred after Beaudoin was
shot. He stated further that the last
time lie had used the rifle was In
shooting at bottles floating on the
water, and the last time he had
handled it lie had not reloaded.
Mr, Haney in addressing the jury
remarked that there was absolutely
no evidence of any guilty Intention
on Rleher's part ,as he had evidently
been the best of friends with the deceased.     He  was  no  more  guilty  of
murder than if one man out stalking
deer had accidentally shot another
Mr. .MacNeill said that such a comparison would not hold. In this case
the accused admitted that he had
shot Beaudoin and that there had
been a quarrel between them.
Mr. Justice Murphy said it was
suggested tiiat the shooting was accidental, but where was there a
tittle of evidence to prove it? The
accused himself said that the last he
saw of the rifle he was shooting bottles with it, and the next thing it
was in his hands shooting this man.
It was, of course, open to the jury to
bring in a verdict of manslaughter if
they concluded that the accused had
been drinking and that had something to do with the crime. To liis
mind Ihe question of the rifle was
a serious one. Under the circumstances It was open to the jury to
bring in a verdict of murder, of manslaughter or acquittal.
The jury, after returning once to
get some further Information and after about four hours' deliberation,
returned with a verdict of "guilty of
manslaughter." Richer was removed
by the provincial police and taken
over to the gaol in New Westminster
to await sentence at the end of the

Auxiliary Gave Delightful Ball
at Opening of
Everything   Passed    Off   Well    and
Satisfactory Returns Were Received for Hospital
Revised Statutes Will be Ready For
Parliament Early in
The first dance given by the Ladies'
Auxiliary of the General Hospital
Board last Friday evening was In
every respect a success. Citizens generally united lo make the ball the
success it was and special credit attaches to the special committee of
the auxiliary consisting of Mrs. Alex
Manson, Mrs. Fred Stork and Mrs.
C. H. Sawle.
The firm of Brin Bros, placed Mclntyre Hall at the disposal of the
committee, while F. W. Hart supplied glasses and other ware for the
supper. The music was furnished by
Gray's orchestra, which also contributed its services free of charge
so that the fullest amount could be
available for the hospital  funds.
The attendance was very satisfactory to the ladies in charge, the floor
being in no way overcrowded and
a good sum was derived by the auxiliary.
Refreshments were served during
the evening, having been supplied by
the ladies of the auxiliary. At the i
close a sale of cakes, etc., was held,
ihe proceeds going to the hospital
The informal announcement lias
been made by the premier, Hon.
Richard McBride, that the provincial
house will meet on January 11.
The foreshadowed programme for
the session is In many respects a
very interesting one. It is expected
that the attorney-general will be able
at the assembling of parliament to
lay before that body the completed
results of the efforts of the commission, consisting of Messrs. Charles
Wilson, K.C., and A. P. Luxton,, K.
C, appointed to consolidate and revise statutes of British Columbia.
It is expected also that the report
of the forestry commission will also
he in the hands of the government in
advance of the meeting of the house
and that legislation based upon the
recommendations and discoveries of
this important commission will be
brought down early in the session.
The report of the insurance commission is at present obtaining the
careful attention of the government
and it is also expected that legislation arising therefrom will be submitted for the consideration of the
The revenues of the province are
being exceptionally well maintained,
and it is predicted that the finance
minister's financial budget will be a
very successful one, while the arrangements for the carrying forward
of important public works in the
hands of the minister of works will
be on a scale fully equal to the present marked development and the
necessities of the country.
By reason of the fact that room in
the legislative wing has recently been
very cramped, it is anticipated that
steps will at this approaching session
be taken toward providing additional
and adequate accommodation for this
branch of the public service.
It is improbable that any extensive
proposals for the assistance of new
railways by bond guarantee and
otherwise will be submitted at the
present juncture by the government.
