COMMISSION  HERE
Arguments  Heard  in   the  Natter  of
Cameron Bay and Kitsumkalum
Station.
These Questions Will Be Considered
by   the   Commissioners
Before Deciding
The railway commission, represented by Chief Commissioner J. P.
Mabee and Commissioner S. J. McLean, sat on Saturday In the court
house and heard argument In two
applications. These were the old
dispute as to opening Cameron Bay,
and the request of the people of Kltsumkalum for a station at that point.
The commissioners have gone to
White Horse to look into the charge
of alleged excessive rates on the
White Pass & Yukon Railway.
Arriving at 10:30 by the Prince
ueorge, the commission was in session shortly after 11 o'clock.
The first application was the long

standing one taken by J. Y. Rochester and others holding leases on government property on Cameron Bay
who sought to have the G. T. P.
compelled to open a passage way for
scows into the bay through the fill-
in which has there been made.
Want  Opening
A. Carss appeared for the applicants. He explained the situation,
objecting strongly to the filling in of
the passage, and contended that the
applicants had suffered loss
through this action. Th*'baj had
been used for the landing of sand
and gravel and his clients had been
forced out of the business in consequence. A scow had been moored
by his clients in the passage-way as
a protest against the closing, and the
company filled in over it. There was
no plan showing this filling filed in
the local registry office. If it had
been filed it had been withdrawn.
For two years his clients had been
deprived from using the bay und had
to go out of business. The provincial government had leased the land,
showing that they regarded it as an
open bay.
Mr. Carss dwelt at length upon
the difficulty encountered in handling such material as sand and
gravel in this harbor. It was expensive and unhandy to do it over
the ordinary docks. There was extra expense for dockage as well as
loss of time, and trouble was occasioned. Cameron Bay offered a
good chance to handle this material.
It was a tidal bay and the water
was easily approachable for unloading scows.
Opposing View
D'Arcy Tate, solicitor for the
G. T. P., put up a strong argument
against the application. He went into
the history of the location of Prince
Rupert as a terminus, stating that
it was selected wholly on account of
the waterfront. The company had
purchased 10,000 acres from the provincial government and through the
surrender of the Indians of 13,000
acres more known as the Metlakatla
Reserve had acquired from the Dominion and the province this 13,000
acres additional. Tbe Indians had
been the only people using this bay.
Mr. Justice eMabee asked as to the
boundaries of the land.
Mr. Tate said it was defined by
metes and bounds.
His lordship asked if it was pretended that by the first grant any
title was given to this bay.
Mr. Tate said there was, by Inference.
His lordship could not see how it
could be given by inference.
Mr. Carss safil tnere had been a
reconveyance of the land to the provincial government.
Company's Rights
Mr. Tate went into this question,
stating that the province had become the owner of an undivided
quarter interest in the site according to the agreement between the
province and the company. He went
on to explain  the division  made of
the waterfront. The company had
gone to the Dominion government
and got the rights it possessed on
the waterfront. An arangrement
had been made by the company with
the province before these clients
came into the matter at all by which
the outside lots on the waterfront
fronting on the harbor which went
to the province were given the rights
taken over from the Dominion and
at the same time the inside lots
were not to be maintained as waterfront lots.
These applicants, Mr. Tate contended, could not force any better
title from the province than the
province bad. The province had
given them to understand that their
leases did not carry any waterfront.
He explained that Mr. Manson, the
representative of the .district had
tried, In the Legislature, to get an
opening left but this would have destroyed the provincial government's
waterfront on the outside, which,
from the public Interst, was far more
valuable. Mr. Rand, at the time of
the sale, had assured the buyers that
these lots were not waterfront lots.
Question  of Title
Mr. Carss contended that Mr. Rand
had assured them the very opposite.
His lordship said it was apparently a question of who had the title
to this waterfront. He asked what
title the applicants had, and was
shown the grant made by the provincial government. A circular advertising the sale of these leases was
also put In.
His lordship interpreted the circular issued by the government as
to the lease of lots as containing six
waterfront lots and the remainder as
warehouse lots.
An Exchange
His lordship said that it appeared
these men had a good title from the
province. The company apparently
cut these off, claiming a better title.
The title issued by the province spoke
for itself.
Mr. Tate said the province at the
time it granted these leases had disposed of its title to the waterfront.
In the discussion following Mr.
Tate said the provincial government
gnve up the interior waterfrontage
for the exterior.
The province could only confer
such title as it had had conferred
upon it.
The question of the lease came up,

TIME EXTENSIONS
S. Camozzi Has an Allowance Made on
His Contract for
Delays.
Application Made by Tom SHRDLU
for  Extending  Period
for Him
At the council meeting held last
evening Tom Mazlum complained
of the deduction from the amount
due him on the contract at the rate
of $25 a day. He based this on the
ground that he was not responsible
for the delays. He had been hindered by the city engineering department not having its work ready,
by change in the grade and by the
fact that he stopped work owing
to an accident.
This was referred to the board
of works for a report.
On the report of the city engineer the application of S. Camozzi
for 90 days extension of time on a
contract was dealt with. An extension  of 60 days was allowed.
Aid. Newton wanted to know how
this would affect other extensions
of time.
Aid. Hllditch said these were all
considered on their merits. In this
case the fault was not Mr. Camozzi's.
The delay was due to the fact that
he had been held up by a McMordie
contract.

MARKET PLACE LOTS
ARE WITHDRAWN
Mayor Manson Returns From Victoria After Securing
Government's Consent to the G.T.P. Agreement-Site for City Hall at End of
2nd Avenue is no Longer
Available for the
Corporation.
Mayor Manson returned yesterday
afternoon from the south, where he
has had a number of questions affecting the city up for consideration. He confirms the news that
the government has consented to the
agreement made between the city
and the G, T. P., although it was
after considerable consideration that
it was agreed to. The government
showed objection to the handing over
of the quarter interest in lands
which were to be given in fee simple
to the city.
The city hall site on Market Place
has been withdrawn from the market by the government at the price
quoted in view of the settlement affording what may be regarded as
good sites for the hall.
The mayor also saw R. H. Thomson of Seattle, the consulting engineer, with respect to the hydro-electric proposition when the offer of
the Tsimpsean power company was
taken up.
At last evening's council meeting
the situation was explained by his
worship, when he outlined the results of his trip south.
Agreement Signed
His worship said that when he met
the government in connection with
the G. T. P. agreement he found
it more difficult than he had anticipated to secure the assent of the
government. The government had
not been consulted in the matter
previous to the city and the company having come to an agreement.
The government did not hesitate
about the acceptance of the agreement as far as park lands was concerned. The government, however,
demurred at the handing over of the
lands  to  be  taken   by  the  city   in
fee simple. The government could
not see why it should hand over a
quarter interest in these lands in
order that a settlement might be
reached between the city and the
company whereby the latter secured
an advantage In the matter of taxation.
The government had requested him
to put his reasons for the course proposed. He had accordingly prepared memoranda which he presented
to the government and which he
now handed to the clerk so that the
members of the council could consult
it at any time. He had set forth
that the city was deprived of taxation upon the lands held by the government and the grants now made
would only be reasonable to offset
this.
The  government  had   finally   decided to sign the agreement.
Hydro-Electric
He had made a visit to Seattle to
confer with Mr. Thompson in the
matter of the Tsimpsean proposals
to the city. Mr. Thomson did not
consider the draft agreement with
the Tsimpsean company to be such
a one as should be entered into. He
promised to look into the question
more fully and report to the city
later.
Market Place Withdrawn
The government in agreeing to the
terms of the agreement between the
city and the G. T. P. had withdrawn
the offer of the five lots on Market
place as a city hall site. With all
the lands available for the city for
a site for a city hall it was decided
to withdraw the offer of the site in
Market Place, which the government
had never been anxious to dispose of.
NO DYE-ELECTION
Information   Is  That  the  Dates  for
Tests in British Columbia Will
Be Uniform
The British Columbia voters' lists
have all been prepared according to
the announcement made by J. F. Foley, clerk of the Crown in Chancery,
says an Ottawa despatch. Mr. Foley
was asked especially in regard to
the lists for Kootenay, concerning
which progress was slow and a deferred election was thought to be
probable in consequence. Mr. Foley
said the Kootenay llBts were Included
with  others which were  mailed.
This information indicates that the
elections in British Columbia are all
to be brought on on the same date.

Electric Company. He will remain In
the city some time in connection with
the carrying out of the scheme with
which he Is Identified. He will continue negotiations with the city council looking to a settlement of a basis
of agreement between the city and
Ills company. He says he is not antagonistic to the city's proposition
which It is proposed to develop In
conjunction with the water supply.
ROSS IS THE CHOICE
Liberal Party Select Candidate at Convention Held in Nanaimo
City.
The recent finds of platinum in
valuable quantities in the Kootenay
have raised a question in that dis-
tritc as to the rights of prospectors
to enter upon and stake claims in
properties owner and operated as
fruit or general ranches by other individuals; and telegrams from Nelson state that litigation will follow
the staking of several claims during
the past fortnight, says the Victoria
Colonist.
In connection with this it may be
pointed out, upon the authority of
the crown law officers, that the Mineral Act of British Columbia, generally regarded as a model In mining
law, distinctly provides for just such
eventualities, Section 2 of this act
specifically and distinctly giving the
right of entry to the prospector In
search of the precious metals on either crown or privately owned lands.
Section 12 of the same statute also
emphasizes the prospectors' right of
entry, while requiring that he give,
if required, adequate security against
loss or damage to the properties entered upon by reason of his mining
operations, and compensation for any
damage done.

Canada's Wood Pulp
Of all the forces in the United
States which have worked, tirelessly
and incessantly, to secure the adoption of the reciprocity agreement,
none has played a more important
part than tlie American Newspaper
Publishers' Association. The incarnation of the association is a Mr. John
Norris; he is, nominally, the chairman of its "Committee on Paper,"
which is as good a title for him
as another. Actually, he is the intermediary between the publishers
and President Taft, Secretary Knox,
members of the Senate and ordinary
representative. Mr. Norris, In discussing the affairs of the association,
consequently speaks wit ha certain
measure of authority.
Thanks to the peculiar wording of
the Underwood bill and the connivance—the word is used in its legitimate sense—of Mr. Taft, the
newspaper publishers of the United
States are now enjoying the full
fruits of reciprocity in the commodity
coni'erning which they have special
Interest—news-print paper. When
the president signed the reciprocity
legislation, the barrier which the
United States had erected against
the competition of Canadian pulpwood limits was more than half demolished. It may not be unprofitable
to consider what Mr. Norris and the
powerful association for whom he
speaks expect will result from this.
Two   Classes   of  Pulp-Wood
First of all, the exigencies of the
legislation which the provinces nearest to the insatiable paper market
of the great eastern states have found
it was wise to adopt for conservation
purposes, make a very clear line between the provincial crown lands and
all other areas on which pulp-wood
is growing. To prevent the raw material of the forests being swept into
the maw of the American paper mills
and the forests themselves wiped out
of existence to the lasting injury of
the provinces, an export duty on
wood pulp has been imposed on the
cut of crown lands. By the nature
of things, this cannot be made to
apply to private limits, nor does it
affect the great forests of the western provinces which are classified as
Crowu Lands of the Dominion of
Canada.
in discussing this phase of the situation before the finance committee
of the United States Senate, while
the reciprocity bearings were in progress, Mr. Norris said, in a burst of
frankness not intended for Canadian
auditors: "The result of this state of
affairs will be to set up a competition between the private lands and
the DominioH lands, on one side, and
the provincial crown lands on the
other which will soon force the provincial authorities to remove the restrictions from their own Iands."
The Removal of All Restrictions
In a word, Mr. Norris and his powerful employers are openly planning
to bring about the removal of every
restriction with which we have tried
to safeguard and conserve our national resources in pulp-wood and to
throw them open to the same extravagant and intemperate system of
exploitation which has destroyed the
forests of the United States, and incidentally, brought injury to tens of
thousands of acres of once fertile and
well watered farm lands which adjoined  them.
And, what more directly concerns
Canada and Canadians, the pulpwood limits of Alberta and Saskatchewan, In spite of the fact that the
reciprocity agreement has not been
accepted by the Canadian Parliament, are already thrown open to
an invasion which can only be
checked by the Dominion government placing the same restrictions
on  its  crown  lands that have been
already imposed by the provinces on
theirs.
What Mr. Norris Said
To understand more clearly what
this means and how the American
newspaper publishers expect to see
It work out to their advantage at
the cost of Canadians, a few more
quotations from Mr. Norris' very interesting explanation before the
Washington senators will be helpful:
"The ecnomlc pressure of theh
competition from the Dominion
Iands," he said, "is bound to force
the individnual provinces to withdraw their restrictions. The wood-
pulp will be made In Canada, but
the paper will be made in the United
States."
"But," said Senator Smoot, "it is
just as cheap, comparatively, to
make paper as it is wood-pulp. Why
would the Canadian mills be satisfied to manufacture only wood-
pulp?"
"It requires one and four-tenths
cords of wood for one ton of paper,"
replied Mr. Norris, "and approximately one ton of coal is used for
treating and drying for every ton
of paper that is shipped from the
mill. With the lime, clay, and other
material required, the average is the
transportation of from four and a
half to five tons of the raw material
for every ton of the finished product.
In Canada the pulps can be made
close to the power sites and there
is easy and cheap transportation to
the nearest tide-water market. A
ton of ground wood equals about one
ton of paper, and if the pulp is shipper 50 per cent moist, or weighing
two tons to the ton of dry pulp, there
will still be an advantage of three
tons in the bill for railway transportation. The ultimate solution of this
problem will be the shipment of pulp
to the large cities in the United
States, where it will be converted
into paper at factories within forty
minutes of the big newspaper offices.
Such a procedure would mean a saving, among other economies, of 2
per cent on wrappers and 1 per cent
on waste. Such a mill could make
paper from $3 to $5 a ton cheaper
than mills located nearer the timber
limits."
What Mr.  Norris Meant
If Mr. Norris and the American
publishers know their business, and
nothing has arisen in connection with
their campaign for recprocity in the
United States to justify the belief
that they do not, the first steps have
already, byt their own confession,
been taken to bring Ontario and Quebec "to their knees" on this little
matter of conserving our pulp-wood
limits.
As so carefully explained by Mr.
Norris, the Dominion crown lands of
Alberta and Saskatchewan being
open to the United States consumer
of pulp-wood without any restriction, there need be no pretending
that more than the first and crudest
of the processes of transforming the
trees into paper will be performed in
Canada. All the advantages to follow from the development of the paper-making industry will be kept
carefully at home. The first rough
process of making the wood Into
pulp will take place In Canada, but
all the rest of the manufacturing will
be done in one or other of the great
cities of the United States.
And to round out and make complete the results of this industrial
achievement, the very wealth of our
national assets in the west will be
used to bring about the turning over
of the same kind of assets In the
east to foreign consumers who have
no motive except their immediate
and profitable exploitation.—Montreal Star,

PIONEER STEAM LAUNDRY
KHEDIVE   INTERVIEWED
Egyptian   Ruler   Gives   His   Opinion
Upon  Political  Situation nnd
Outlook  in   His  Country
The Figaro of Paris printes a
lengthy interview with the khedive
og Egypt, who has just arrived in
Paris. The Interview was granted in
Cario to a special correspondent of
the newspaper in question, and it is
interesting as meing marked by an
open expression of opinion as to the
political situation and outlook in
Egypt.
His higness emphasizes the importance of the present movement in
favor of the spread of education,
thanks to which, he says, the Egyptian people are realizing more and
more fully their rights and duties,
so that it will not be long before
its regains its rank among the most
ivilized nations of the world. The
extension of powers granted to the
provincial councils is another powerful factor in the work of regeneration. On the constitution question
the khedive says:
"I am a constitutional sovereign
and an enemy of absolute power, but
it must be made clear that the problem of the representation of the people is more complex in my country
than in many others; we have to
take into account special conditions
relative to the administration of
finance. And, above all, the fact
must not be lost sight of that the
country must progress gratdually towards parliamentary institutions and,
so to speak, attain to them by force
of experience and wisdom."
His higness regrets the impulsive
conduction o- a certain section of
his people, but predicts that the com-
monsense for which Egypt is renowned will obtain the upper hand.
The agitation among the Copts is
condemned by him. The Coptic
claims he describes as being inspired
by Irresponsible extremists, and calculated to create a gulf between the
Mussulmans and Copts, to the great
evil of the country.
Summing up his optimistic views
as to the general outlook, the khedive
says:
"The agitation which has manfest-
ed itself and which, as always, has
been exaggerated, is superfical.
These men who are in such a hurry
to annihilate everything, and who belong to associations in which policy
is replaced by poetry, are not followed by native people, who are, at
the same time, distrustful, and simple-minded."

North American continent, has been
discovered by J. H. Russell, an English asphalt expert, in the country of
the northland, along the banks of
the Athabasca River, on the claims
of the Fort McKay Oil and Asphalt
Company. Mr. Russell returned to
Edmonton a few days ago after a
six weeks' visit to the north.
Discussing the possibilities which
the discovery of rock asphalt would
open to the people of the province,
and the vast commercial development to which the new industry must
give rise, Mr. Russell before undertaking his recent journey said in an
interview with the Capital of Edmonton:
"If the impression that I have
formed of the mineral deposits of the
country along the Athabasca River
is a cored one, you possess in this
province a bituminous limestone
which will prove to be the most valuable asset of the west. The formation is that of a limestone which has
come in contact with bituminous deposits and undergone a chemical
change and which is a far more valuable product than pure asphalt Itself. Its va'ue for pavement purposes is enrinotis. It makes a far
more satisfactory pavement than
does a mixture of asphalt and stone,
and for this reason the news of the
find will resound throughout the
worlu. It Is a product for which
European capitalists have been looking  for years:"
Mr. Russell has also discovered
during his recent visit to the north
mineral deposits in the form of pure
asphalt (Bitumen), and bitumlnized
sands, which, In his opinion, exist
to an almost unlimited extent. The
discoveries have been made on the
claims of the Fort McKay Company.
Mr. Russell Is now engaged in
carrying out a series of tests to discover the proper treatment of the
tar sands broght down from the
north by A. Vlolette and J. K. Corn-

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

the Canadian Bank of Commerce.

Canadian Northern Has Let Her Last
Pint of Construction in
British Columbia
The contract for the balance of
the Canadian Northern line from
Kamloops to the British Columbia
boundary line where the railhead
from the prairies touches has been
let to the Northern Construction
Company. Sub-contracts will be
awarded for the entire distance by
the latter company within a Ifew
weeks and tenders are now being
called.
Roughly speaking, the distance involved in this contract is in the
neighborhood of 300 miles from
Kamloops to the railhead west of
Edmonton, which is now at the
boundary line between the provinces
of British Columbia and Alberta. The
contract for that part of the line
from Hope to Kamloops was given
a month ago and has already been
practically all subdivided among the
railway contracting firm which have
made their headquarters for the past
year in Vancouver. The long span
to the Yellowhead Pass will now also
be placed ih the hands of the construction firms, bids being at present invited by the Northern Construction Company.
This stretch linking up the two
railheads east and west and thus connecting the Canadian Northern system from Ontario to the Pacific
Ocean is said to involve no great
difficulties in the way of grading and
steel laying, the work not being by
any means so heavy as that through
the Fraser River valley, wliere heavy
tunnel construction was necessary.
The contract calls for the completion of the grading from Kamloops
to tlie provincial boundary In about
two years. From Kamloops the
route is along the Nortli Thompson
River to Tete Jaune Cache and east
through the Yellowhead Pass. For
the greater portion of the distance
northeast from Kamloops the railway will traverse almost unknown
country, said, however, to be exceedingly fertile. The North Thompson
Valley Is wider than that of the Fraser for the most part and comparatively little tunneling will have to
be done, it Is expected. There will
be some rock work, said Mr. Mercer, with steam shovel work and general team work.

TO THE ELECTORS
R, L. Borden, the leader of tlie
Conservative party in Canada, has
issued  Hie following statement:
"The dissolution of Parliament
came as a great surprise to the supporters of tlie administration. They
evidently knew no more of the Intention of the government than they
knew of the reciprocity agreement
up to January 26 last. Apparently
the government decided upon dissolution in a hurry, or even in a panic,
as they gave no intimation to the
many members on both sides of the
house who are accustomed to spend
the week-end with their families, and
who left for their homes on Friday
nleht without receiving the courtesy
of notice.
Welcomes the Appeal
"The Conservative party welcomes
an appeal io the people on the great
issue which has been under discussion in Parliament. The president
of the United States has more than
once emphasized the fact that Canada is at the parting of the ways.
Those two ways lead in very divergent directions. The choice of the
people will be fraught with momentous consequences to the future destiny of this country. It is right
and pjust that they should speak,
because with them rests the ultimate
decision.
Opposition Leader's Plaint
"The government has dissolved
Parliament without prorogation,
without supply and without redistribution. I urged upon the government on the eighth day of March last
their plain duty to hasten the taking
of the census, to bring in a redistri-
tribution bill, and thus give to very
part of the country its proper representation, and then to submit this
question to them. The House of Parliament, elected without any mandate on this question, ought not to
reverse the policy of the past forty
years without giving the people the
right to speak. They declined to
hasten the census, they declined to
gram redistribution, and finally
they have dissolved Parliament at a
moment's notice, without even asking ihe Opposition for the supplies
necessary to carry on the public service until the next Parliament shall
be enabled to grant the same.
Question  of Supply
"Constitutional authorities abound
to prove that dissolution ought not
to be granted without provision of
the necessary supplies for the public service. We have been ready to
grant such supplies, but the prime
minister during the present week announced in the House of Commons
that under present conditions the
government would not even ask for
them. Whenever supply has been
asked for during the present session
we have granted it without hesitation. In May last we granted without discuss'on nearly forty million
dollars of supply, being one-fourth
of the total estimates. This amount
was sufficent to carry on the public
service up to the first of September
next. In all, we have granted during the present session five-twelfths
of the total estimates withount discussion in order that public business
might not he interfered with or
brought, into confusion.
"Canada has made unexampled
progress In the great work of natlon-
bulldlng since the first day of July,
1Si!7. That work has been carried
on without any such treaty or agreement as is now proposed. One would
suppose  that  the government  mlghl
have been content to wait, six months
longer In order that the redistribution might have been accomplished,
and that supplies necessary in the
public interests might have been obtained. But apparently the government placed this agreement above all
constitutional considerations.
Suys Pledge Is Violated
"But, more than that, the government has placed this agreement even
before their own honor. In May last
the prime minister took cognizance
in parliament of a certain charge
which had been made against one of
his ministers. He moved for a committee of inquiry, but he conferred
on that committee exceedingly limited powers of investigation. The committee met in May last, but did not
then begin the actual work of investigation. After the House of Commons had resumed its work on the
eighteen of July no step was taken
until 1 inquired the cause of the
delay. After some days a meeting
of the committee took place on Tuesday, July 25, when witnesses were
present in Ottawa who could have
been called to give evidence. The
Conservative members of the committee urged that the inquiry should
proceed forthwith. The government,
through their supporters on that
committee, urged an adjournment until Tuesday, August 1. The adjournment was pressed on the ground that
Mr. Carvell, one of the government
members of the committee, had not
yet returned. There were many other
equally capable men available in the
government ranks, and his place
could easly have been supplied.
Finally, Mr. Meighen, one of the Conservative members, asked for a guarantee that Parliament would be sitting on the following Tuesday, August 1, ."o that the-inquiry could then
proceed. That guarantee was given,
and the adjournment was then agreed
to. The pledge thus given was deliberately violated by the action of the
government in dissolving Parliament,
today.
Charges Dangerous Precedent
"But apart from this deliberate
violation of a solemn pledge, it is a
distinct breach of constitutional
usage that Parliament should be dissolved while one of its committees
is engaged in ue investigation of
charges which involved the honor of
a minister of the crown and the fate
of the government. Such a course
constitutes an alarming and denger-
ous precedent, which would not for
one moment be tolerated in the
Mother Country. It was the duty of
the government to clear up those
charges before appealing to the people, and that could have been done
in one week. Several witnesses summoned by the committee are in Ottawa ready to give their evidence on Tuesday next. The committee and all its powers of inquiry
was wijied out of existence by the
dissolution of Parliament. The course
of the Government in deliberately
burking this inquiry on the eve of
an appeal to the people was an outrageous abuse of their power, and
manifested in a most striking manner
their utter contempt for decent public opinion."

two provinces will support the Conservative party, which alone is prepared to render justice to the west.
The situation is this. Sifton and
Scott talked the matter over with
Laurier and Oliver and they were
authorized to make a general statement. There is nothing definite.
Nothing is concluded or officially announced here. It is true that the
question will be one of future negotiations. Alberta and Saskatchewan are to get a limited grant of
land—mark the word limited—but
will have to forego the federal cash
subsidy of half a million dollars, receiving instead an annual grant of
80 cents per head, the same as the
older provinces. This is the case in
a nutshell. It is a miserable little
attempt to bribe the western electorate, which will be resented.

The desperate straits in which the
Dominion government finds itself in
its anxiety to retain office is shown
by the interview given out by Premier Sifton of Alberta in Winnipeg.
Since the creation of Alberta and
Saskatchewan the steadfast policy of
the Conservative party has been in
favor of granting the lands to the
provinces. This has been promised
by R. L, Borden to the people of
these new provinces. Now the Laurier government, in its extremity, is
disposed to offer a half measure, but
it will not go down with the electorate. The plain inference is that the
Liberal boast that reciprocity will
sweep the west Is hollow, and that
to save the situation the west must
be bribed.
The question, however, is whether
ilie move will gain a single additional
vote to the Liberals In Alberta and
Saskatchewan, but thai mi the contrary the independent voters of the
when it was explained that the holders were paying 6 per cent a year
ou the valuation of the lots and a
bonus.
His lordship said, in reply to a
little cross-fire between Mr. Tate and
Mr. Carss,: "I don't blame a man
for trying to get whatever he can.
They're in a hole—tied up."
Mr. Tate contended they never
paid  for the waterfront.
His lordship, with a smile, volunteered tlie statement that they paid
more than the G. T. P. paid for the
whole waterfront.
Government's Position
Mr. Tate wanted to know why the
applicants did not go to the courts.
His lordship could find no fault
with them coming to the commission.
If they had gone to the courts, they
would have been told, why did they
not go to the commission?
His lordship wanted to know if
the province came into action,
could it compel the company to open
this up.
Mr.  Carss thought it could.
His lordship thought if that were
correct his clients would have equal
title. He, however, went em to argue
that tlie province might be estopped
on the ground of the arrangements
made. Mr. Carss pointed to . the
riparian rights which would have to
be reserved.
Mr. Tate, however, took the
ground that the agreements made
with the provincial government
were far more in the public interests
than this was and would prevent any
claim being established. He wanted
to know why the province was not
represented in this application if it
was as represented. He thought it
was apparent that the government
had been extremely apathetic, to say
the least. Mr. Tate then put in a
long list of citations on the case
from arguments, acts of parliament
and orders in council.
The commissioners visited the location in order to satisfy themselves
as to the situation.
A decision may be expected later.
Upon resuming in the afternoon,
Commissioner McLean wanted to
know if the railway company has
compiled with the law In getting the
assent of the department and of the
railway  board.
Mr. Tate said the spirit of the
law had been complied with.

Kitsiinikuliiin   Station
The application by the people of
Kitsumkalum for a station was represented by Fred Peters, K. C, Several witnesses were examined, when
it was evident that from the Kltsumkalum River to the end of the steel
there was a desire to have stations
practically  touching one another.
W. C. C. Mehan, the general superintendent, explained that the locations of the stations were made by
the engineers. He built them according to the instructions received by
him from headquarters. He had
nothing to do with locating the stations. He had, however, put in a
siding at Kltsumkalum and stopped
at all times to take on and discharge passengers and freight. He
urged, however, that there was a
four-tenths grade there, which
would make it undesirable as a station site.
Mr. Peters urged that nearly all
the freight and passengers went to
Kltsumkalum now. He produced evidence to show that the plans of the
government roads and the prospective bridge across the Skeena would
all tend to make Kltsumkalum the
main point.
Several witnesses testified to the
desirability of a station there.

Mr. Little, the owner of the Littleton townsite, gave evidence, giving the reasons why he had selected
the spot he did as the natural centre for that part of the country.
Mr. Peters attempted to show that
Mr. Little had turned over forty-four
acres to the G. T. P. free and these
lots were sold to some officials for
$ii apiece.
Mr. Mehan, who was in the sourt
room, said he had bought, but II
was at $300 a lot.
The evidence on the giving of the
plot to the G. T. P. was found to
have been voluntary on the part of
Mr. Little. Mr. Pope, the right of
way officer of the company, said he
entered Into an agreement for the
necessary land for railway purposes
at a  fixed  sum.    Later,  Mr.  Little
, had apparently given an area to the
' company.
On Sunday the commissioners
went to the end of the track and
Inspected  the  place  for  themselves.
Judgment In the matter was deferred.

Tsimpsean Peninsula, can be utilized for the purpose of obtaining a good
and sufficient supply of water for the said Uity, and also for the purpose
of supplying electric power for the use of the snid City.
AND, WHEREAS, instead of constructing' two separate systems, one
for the supply of water, and the other for producing electric power, the
Council have concluded that a combination of the two systems in one
will be much more economical and equally us efficient.
AND, WHEREAS, in order to effect such a combination, it will be
necessary to install mains from tlie point of diversion to the point, wliere
the power plant is to be constructed, of sufficient diameter to carry water
for both purposes, which will be much more than would be required for
either the water supply or the electric system alone.
AND, WHEREAS, considering the above recited facts, the Council
have determined to treat the whole scheme as a joint undertaking and to
provide for the construction of the sumo ns such.
AND, WHEREAS, the general description of the proposed Hydro-
Electric System is ns follows:—
A dam to be erected at a suitable point near the outlet of Woodworth
Lake; from that point the water to be piped down to a point ut or near
the head of Shawatlans Lake, the snid pipe to be of a capacity large enough
to cany sufficient water for the supply of the City of Prince Rupert, and
also to operate at or near the heud of Sliuwatlnns Lake, a plant for tlie
purpose of generating electricity; and after leaving the head of Shawatlans
Luke the water will be piped Into tlie City of Prince Rupert, and there
be distributed by a proper distribution system, nnd the electric power
will he brought into the said City by transmission lines from the head
of Sbawatlaiis Lake.
AND, WHEREAS, the amount of the debt necessary to be incurred
by the City of Prince Rupert for the construction of the snid Hydro-Electric
Plant, and tbe necessary distribution system connected therewith, is the
sum of $550,000.00.
AND, WHEREAS, the total amount which will have to be raised
annually for the purpose of paying the s aid debt and Interest will he
$28, 048.54.
AND, WHEREAS, the snid Hydro-Electric System cannot be completed
before the first day of September A. I). 1012, and, therefore, the amount
of rates, charges, and rentals for the use of water or electric power will
during tills present yeur be nil.
AND, WHEREAS, no money is already charged against the rentals,
rates or charges to be derived from the said Hydro-Electric System.
AND, WHEREAS, the estimated amount of rentals, rates, und charges
that will be derived (rom the said Hydro-Electric System after the snme
is completed is the sum of $72,500.00.
AND, WHEREAS, the sum necessary for the payment of interest
during the currency of the debentures to be issued hereunder is $24,750.00
per annum.
AND, WHEREAS, the sum to lie set aside annually to discharge the
debt, authorized to be created by this bylaw, is the sum of $4,108.54 per

or by the purchase of the debentures of the said "City ut a price not above
par or by both such modes of investment, or by investing the sunie in any
manner Which a Municipal corporation may  legally adopt.
AND, WHEREAS, the amount to be raised annually for the payment
of the said debt is arrived at by estimating the interest to be derived from
file /annual investment of such sum at the rate of three and a half per
rent {'.tli r'c )■ per annum.
AND, WHEREAS, the total amount of rateable land nnd Improvements
in the City of Prince Rupert, according to the last revised assessment roll
is as follows:—
Lund, $12,223,041.00;  improvements, $407,905.

from will be sufficient to pay the annual amounts required to pay tln^
interest and sinking fund required to be raised under this Bylaw, and that
there will he no deficiency to lie made up under tlie guarantee to lie given
by the City ns hereinafter provided.
AND, WHEREAS, the City intends to issue debentures for the amount
of the said debt, being $550,000, by tlie sale of whirh to realize the moneys
necessary for the said purposes, the snid debentures to extent (or a period
of fifty (50) years und to be secured upon the rentals, rates, and charges

SPORTS
What promises to be one of the
greatest fights that will be held
under the new law will be between
Abe Attell and "Knockout" Brown
for ten rounds, in New York. This
affair will take place during the early
part of September.
The fight resolves itself into a case
of a crafty ring general, handicapped
by only ten rounds, facing one of
the toughest hitters of his weight in
the country. Nothing need be said
regarding the reputation of Attell
and Brown. The featherweight champion has been fighting all sizes and
manner of rivals for so many years
that his career is nofhing short of
marvellous. No matter what advantage they had entering the ring, with
few exception, Attell found their
weak spots and before the finish was
way out In front. There will be few
men in the squared circle for many
years that will duplicate the glowing
record of this phenomenal fighter.
In the case of Brown, his career
hat been Bhort but startling. Within
the past year he has loomed up as
a lightweight championship possibility. His two victories over Wol-
gast force the world to pay attention
to his prowess. Since he defeated
Wolgast at tlie National Sporting
Club, Brown has lengthened his record by seven knockouts. His ring
tnctlcs have shown Improvement In
each suceedlng battle. Possessed of
a left that carries a terrible punch,
Brown has developed his right almost
on a par with his portslder.
In his line of attack Attell will
be compelled to stand off and fight
in the open. The punches of Brown
are too heavy for Attell to get in
use his old tactics of wearing down
his man and rendering him harmless.
This method has been so successfully demonstrated by Attell that the
fighting world wonders how he does
it. For shifty footwork and lighting
jabs there is no man in Ihe game
on an equal with the Hebrew champion. And for defensive qualities he
shines above them all.
gro, who stands to draw down $30,-
000 for his end of the affair. In
pointing out reasons why Wells cannot hope to make a respectable showing if Johnson tries, attention is
drawn to the interesting fact that
Eddie McGoorty, of Oshkosh, Wis., a
middleweight, outpointed Petty Officer Curran In a twenty round bout
in Dublin. Then Curran knocked
out the much abused Gunner Molr
in two rounds, and, sad to relate,
Moir put Wells to sleep in three
rounds. On that sort of pugilistic
dope it's no wonder that Englishmen
do not relish the Johnson-Wells
match, so-called. The Johnson-Cur-
ran match has been indefintely postponed, the Dublin authorities refusing to grant a permit for the battle.

Oliver and Rutherford
The Liberals of Edmonton are
holding no love feasts these days.
The warring factions are going at it
tooth and nail and the opposition
to Hon. Frank Oliver is expressed in
ferocious denunciations from his
former supporters and henchmen.
The Edmonton Capital, a Liberal pa-
leer in Edmonton welcomes the announcement that Hon. A. C. Rutherford will oppose Oliver and speaks
of the campaign as one "fraught
witli enormous consequences to the
province of Alberta," a fight between
the people and privilege; between
honest democracy and gum-shoe
forces of corruption, The Capital
says further lhat In the Interests
of pure polltlci and honest administration, Frank Oliver must be
willed from the slate and his place
filled by a man who Is not susceptible to the influences of corruption.
Here are some of the biting sentences from the Capital: "Frank Oliver has been caught with the goods."
"In the manipulation of the intrigue
of which he was guilty Frank Oliver
has been as ruthless as a bandit and
as relentless as an Apache." "Frank
Oliver Is today the subject of an
Investigation to avoid the disclosures of which the Laurier government was forced to a choice between
immediate dissolution or an appeal
to the country with the handicap of
the charges against Oliver proven to
the hilt. With thij nesses on hand
and the evidence ready, the government chose dissolution, leaving the
electors of Edmonton to deal with
Oliver."

Their Executive Workers
for the Year
Al the annual meeting of the Conservative Association at Hazelton last
week the election of officers for the
new year resulted as follows: President, J. F. Macdonald; vice president, Robert DeB. Hovel; joint secretaries, H. N. Wright and Walter
Noel. An" executive committee was
added later, which no consists of
C. G. Harvey, R. S. Sargent, E. H.
Hicks Beach, W. J. McAfee, W. Mc-
Cormick, A. R. McDonald, Enoch R.
L. Jones, F. J. Smyth, and the executive officers of the association.
The retiring officers, who were unanimously requested to remain in
offfice another year, but who declined owing to the fact that they were
also officers of the Omineca District
Conservative Association and could
not spare the time from their business to be active officers in more
than one association during a campaign, are: President, R. S. Sargent;
vice president, E. H. Hicks Beach,
and the secretary-treasurer, Fred
Field. A vote of appreciation was
tendered the retrilng officers for the
effective work they have accomplished since the organization of the association, and a vote of confidence was
tendered to R. L. Borden, leader of
the Dominion Conservative party,
and Hon. Richard McBride, premier
of British Columbia.

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening into the body there
is a   Malleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed in such joints.    They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus stove bolts and  stove putty.    It's
important to every  one  using  or  buying

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
PRESS OPINIONS
AN  AMERICAN   VIEW
The American papers are giving
much attention to the present campaign in Canada, and are gauging
the chances of the respective parties.
In recent years a much cleare knowledge of politics In this country has
prevailedl in the United States, and
a fair conception of the sentiment of
the people has been obtained. It is
being pointed out by newspapers in
New York and Chicago, and even by
those in San Francisco, that the result of the Canadian elections will
depend largely upon whether the people believe that reciprocity would or
would not make for annexation. The
New York papers are pointing out
that the annexation cry is the one
which the Conservatives would do
best to raise throughout the country. Canadians, It is frankly admitted, do not want annexation, and
the majority of the voters, It is pointed out, would defeat any measure
which threatened anything in the
nature of a political union.
In fact, that is the position which
Mr. Borden and his lieutenants have
taken. They Insist that the intimate
commercial relations which will result from reciprocity must create
commercial interests which will
weaken the ties which bind aCnada
to Great Britain and create Canadian
sentiment in favor of the United
States as the only way of assuring
the continuance of eomercial union.
And it will be impossible for the
advocates of reciprocity to prove that
this will not be the case, for it will
be the case. AH that they can do
is to predict that the sentimental tie
will prove the stronger, which many
will refuse to believe. They have
President Taft's word for it that Canada is at the parting of the ways.
For another and an entirely different reason the people of the United
States will be interested in the result
of our elctions. To President Taft
the result is important. If it should
turn out that the success of the United States president is forcing upon
his country a personal policy for
which he had no party mandate, and
which could not be carried through
except by collusion with Democrats,
results only in a refusal of Canada
to accept his proposals, it would be
about the worst political medicine
that he could take. — Vancouver
Province.
THE CONSERVATIVE LEADER
R. L. Borden, the Conservative
leader, now enters his fifth election
contest as a parliamentary candidate
for the Commons and his third as
the leader of the Conservative party
in the House of Commons, more influential in the public life of the
country, and more strongly entrenched In the regard of that section of
the electorate who appreciate high-
mindedness, frankness and courage
In a politician, while his personal
prestige has recently been greatly
enhanced by his straightforward
declarations on matters of Canadian
and Imperial policy. Indeed, his
consistent course in parliament has
been In marked contrast to the shifty
way of the Liberal leaders, and his
aggressive fight against the reciprocity pact, both in and out of parliament, has, as it has been said, stimulated and invigorated his party in the
western provinces. Nowhere does
this observation apply more fittingly
than  to British  Columbia.
What are the general lines of Mr.
Borden's public policy? The outstanding feature as regards the present contest is his absolute opposition
to reciprocity. He told the Grain
Growers that he would not support
the Fielding-Knox trade pact if they
made him prime minister of Canada
tomorrow. The principle of his national policy is still, in his view,
essential to the growth and prosperity of Canada. He advocates a
moderate system of protection, such
as will Insure the manufacture of
Canadian raw material In Canadian
factories rather than that Canada
should permit the mire highly organizer Industries of the Republic to
draw these raw materials across the
line, leaving Canadian centres bare
of manufacturing enterprises. More
important still is Mr. Borden's apprehension that, with the Interlocking
of the fiscal systems of Canada and
the United States, this country will
come under the sway of the mergers
and the combines which, with all its
trust-busting efforts, the United
States Congress has not been able
to control.
It Is well known where Mr. Borden stands with respect to Imperial
questions, such as co-operation with
Great Britain in naval defence. He
has also declared that he would
maintain the British preference and
further encourage imports from
Great Britain by legislation or
through a preferential trading arrangement whenever the British peo
ple endorse that policy. How important to the people of British Columbia is the extension of British
preference in reducing the cost ,of
living has not been adequately dealt
with, but the householders know
what economies can be effected by
the purchase of English goods. With
the opening of the Panama Canal
it will be to the great interest of
the people of this province that the
British preference be extended to
many of the common necessaries of
life, but not, however to the prejudice of Canadian industry.
Above all, Mr. Borden stands
pledged to give Canada clean government, democratic government, a
truly Canadian government. Should
he come into power Canadian can
rely on a government for the people
in keeping with the best traditions
of the Liberal-Conservative party.—
New Westminster Columbian.
A  REVERSAL  OP  POLICY
We have called attention before to
the utterances of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and Hon. Mr. Fielding, at the time
when the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was mooted. In those days
there were no stronger advocates in
Canada of the necessity of conserving our inter-provincial trade than
these two gentlemen. They viewed
with great apprehension the possibility of this trade being diverted
across the International boundary,
and it was as a safeguard against
"this ever vigilant competition" that
Sir Wilfrid urged the speedy construction of the new transcontinental
line. "Heaven grant," he exclaimed
with fervor, "that it be not already
too late." Listen, to his language
when the Grand Trunk Pacific Bill
was then before the House of Commons!    This is what he then said:
"A railway to extend from the
shores of the Atlantic Ocean to the
shores of the Pacific Ocean, and to
be, every inch of it, on Canadian soil,
is a national as well as a commercial necessity. That such a road must
be built, that it Is, in the language
which I have used, a national and
commercial necessity, that it is a
corollary of our status as a nation,
that it is a requisite of our commercial development is a proposition to
which, up to this moment, I have
heard no dissent. . . . We con-
siderer that it is the duty of all those
who sit within these walls by the
will of the people, to provide immed-
diately means whereby the products
of those new settlers may find an
exit to the ocean at the least possible
cost, and whereby, likewise, a market
may be found in this new region for
those who toll in the forests, in the
fields, in the mines, in the shops
of the older provinces. Such Is our
duty; it is Immediate and imperative.
It Is not for tomorrow, but of this
day, of this hour and of this minute. Heaven grant that It be not
already too late; heaven grant that
whilst we tarry and dispute the trade
of Canada is not deviated to other
channels, and that an ever vigilant
competitor does not take to himself
the trade that properly belongs to
those who acknowledge Canada as
their native of acknowledged land."
On this point Mr. Fielding was
also very emphatic. No north and
south traffic for him. No freight
for the Hill or other American railroad systems. He said in the House
of Commons: "It is desirable that we
should give our American brethren
to understand that Canada is resolved to work out her independence in
these things, that the present proposal will promote this object, and
that even if still another railway
should be necessary we shall be prepared to construct It."
That the Laurier government,
when it entered Into an agreement
with the Grand Trunk Pacific Company for the building of that road,
was dominated by the "good old Tory
tradition," that Canadian trade
should flow through Canadian channels to Canadian ports, Is abundantly
evident from the clauses in that
agreement. It is sufficient to recall
that aid was granted "for the express purpose of encouraging the
transportation of goods through
Canadian channels," and that "all
such traffic, not specifically routed
otherwise by the shipper, shall be
carried to Canadian ocean ports."
There has never been a more complete reversal of a long established
policy. Today we have members of
this same Laurier government going
up and down the country advising
and encouraging the adoption of an
agreement which they admit will divert western grain and other Canadian produce south. It will be routed
south to United States mills to be
eventually shipped through United
States channels to United States
ports. It will build up the business
of American fruit growers In the
prairie provinces to the detriment of
our British Columbia orchardists.
Lured away by the wiles of President
Taft, the government rushes eagerly
towards Continentalism, conveniently
forgetting one of the fundamentals
of Canada's natioal policy which has
been accepted by both political parties for forty years.—Vernon News.

ROME'S ANCIENT GLORIES
Treasures   of   the   Past   Are   Being
Strengthened—Mediaeval Towel's
to Be Restored
Rome nas slowly, as many was at
hand been Isloating her treasures of
the past, and, if not restoring , as
the charm of many would be spoiled
if touched, at' least strengthening and
preserving them.
In this way the glorious Baths of
Diocletion have been reclaimed and
some of the Forums joined. Now it
Is the moment of metiaeval towers,
and particularly that acllel of the
Mlllzle, on the slope of the Quirnal
Hill. Several of them ahve been restored and are in an "absolute state
of preservation, such as the Angull-
lara, whicn has a fortified house attached and is the best example of
mediaeval architecture in the Eternal
City; Torre della Scimmia and others
scattered here and there almost as
thick as leaves in Valambrosa. However, up to now the most important
of these Interesting structures, Torre
delle Mlllzle and Tor de' Conti, have
been left untouched and unnoticed,
probably because they are in rather
inacessible places.
As one goes up the slope and turn
of the very modern Via Nazionale he
is confronted on the right by a long,
monotonous, low building used as a
barracks, and just opposite by the
unique hanging gardens of the Aldo-
braudinni family. Behind the ba-
racks rises a massive edifice in two
divisions, the Milizie Tower Tower
of the Militia), while down a precipitous slope hard by is the Torre
del Grillo (Tower of the Cricket;,
where the story runs, one of the
family of that name, being forbidden
by the pope to throw rocks down
on the heads of passing Jews, asked
if he might at least throw nuts. Having had an amused permission from
the pontiff, de despatched several
more of his enemies by hurling down
pine cones—in Italy as hard as any
stone, and containing inside a kernel. A few yards beyond is the Tor
de' Conti, so large that it is rented
in flats as an apartment house.
The Tower of the ..lilizie is now in
the court of a convent, has before it
a barracks, at one time a monastery,
and a church. These are the property of the State and will be done
away with, leaving a full view of
the tower, tall and severe in all its
grandeur, and the ruins of the Baths
of Paliari, with a large and magnificent panorama of the Forum of
Trajan and the new monument to
Victor Emmanuel.

RUBBER IN INDIA
Seed Wns First Obtained by Stealth
From the Henri of Brazilian
Forest
The romance of the origin of the
great rubber industry in the Eastern tropics was recalled at a banquet given In connection with the
International Rubber Exhibition just
concluded at the Agricultural Hall,
London.
Advantage was taken of the occasion to present, on behalf of the Middle Eastern Rubber Industry, a check
for $5,000, the certificate of an annuity to H. A. Wicklam, who in 1876
brought from Brazil to Kew Gardens
the seeds from which have sprung
the vast rubber forests of Ceylon,
Malaya and other places in the East.
The story of Mr. Wickham's adventurous quest was related to a
representative of the press by Norman  Grieve,  who was one of those

"He was commissioned by the India office," said Mr. Grieve, "to introduce the Para rubber from Bra-
til into Ceylon. The difficulty was
how to do it. He went to theh To-
pagos plateau on the Amazon, a remote locality, seized the opportunity
of chartering the steamship Ama-
zonas, which happened to be there,
hastily collected, with the aid of
Indians, his baskets of seeds in the
deep forests, and got them to the
coast.
"The next difficulty was to get
the seeds on board, for in those days
the Brazilian authorities would certainly have confiscated them had
they known their nature. Mr. Wickham managed to smuggle them
aboard—70,000 rubber seeds, packed
in a few crates.
"Time was precious. The seeds
would not survive the Journey direct to Ceylon, so they were taken
first to London. They arrived at
Kew Gardens during the night and
were planted out at once. They
were too perishable to risk delay
until the morning. Seven thousand
rubber plans grew from the seeds
and 1,700 of these were sent In
miniature hothouses lo Ceylon.
There they grew into large trees,
twelve feet in girth, and gave seeds
of their own."

No Opposition
Mr. German, one of the Liberals
who voted against reciprocity, has
issued his address to the electors of
Welland. He adheres to his position,
declaring that reciprocity can be of
no lasting benefit to the farmers
while its general effect will be detrimental to the whole interests of the
country. The reciprocity Liberals
met to nominate a party candidate
and made a selection. But the nominee withdrew, and now Mr. German
will have no Liberal opposition.
