Mr. Babcock, who is severing his
connection with the provincial government on August 15, has been a
model fishery commissioner. For
nine years he has been connected

that position. He has worked un

Hon. Thomas Taylor, Minister ot
Public Works, on his return to the
city last week from a tour of the interior, expressed himself as delighted with all he had seen. In company
with William Manson, M.P.P., the
member for the district, the trip was
made to Hazelton, thence down the
Bulkley Valley a distance of 80 miles
to Pleasant Valley, with stops at various points. The needs of the different centres were looked into carefully, meetings being held at the differ-

(Continued on Page Eight)
On his recent visit to the Portland Canal mining district, J. Fred
Ritchie not only examined properties
round about Stewart, out pushed his
way far beyond the location ot the
mines that are now making a name
for the camp and crossing the divide
proved that there is an easy pass
into the valley of the Naas.
As a result of that trip and the
general information that he was able
to give as to the feasability of It as a
railway route, the engineers representing the D. 1). Mann Interests in
the north, are already investigating
ilie route with the object of prolonging the line of their railway past

tewer areas.
.Mr. Ritchie is delighted with tbe
prospects in the new mining country.
He lliinks thai the whole Portland
Canal district, is destined to produce
some of tiie richest mines that have
yet been found. The mineral area Is
by no means, he thinks, confined to
the districts that have so far been
exploited. In the country which he
covered there were indications of
rich deposits and prospectors are at
any time liable to come upon very
rich producers.
The country needs at present in
the worst way trails so that the exploratory work can be pushed forward.
From what he saw of the pass
through the divide separating the
Stewart mining area from the valley
of the Naas there is not the least
difficulty to be encountered In building the telegraph line, which the
Dominion government proposes, by
that route. It Is, In fact, the right
route for it.

these points owing to the fact that
in addition to showing evidences ot
having a very rich deep soil, they
were advantageously situated with
respect to Prince Rupert, and would
have an ideal market.
As a result of the representations
made by the residents along the
Skeena, Mr. Taylor agreed to go more
fully into the question of bridging
the river so as to give connection
between the valleys and allowing the,

George A. McNicholl Has Been Made Super- City Council Is Grappling With Question
intendent With Headquarters
In This City.
George A. McNicholl, who for a
number of years has been purchasing
agent of the G. T. P. on the Pacific
coast, with headquarters in Vancouver, has been made superintendent,
with headquarters In this city. The
appointment takes date from July 1.
The new superintendent will move to
this city about July 10, and assume
the duties connected with the office here.
Mr. McNicholl is well known In
this city, where In connection with
his duties as purchasing agent, he
has had occasion frequently to visit
the place. Among the officers of
the G. T. P. on this coast none have
made more friends than he has, and
his promotion to the new position
will be exceedingly popular.
He is one of the young men with
whom the G. T. P. is filling the various offices at its control, and which
is destined to make the management
an energetic one.
Mr. McNicholl is a methodical
worker and is thoroughly trained in
the railway business. His connection
with the G. T. P. is very close, having been identified with the head office staff from the very beginning of
the transcontinental work. Entering the head office very young, he
rose rapidly. In the early days of
the enterprise he was secretary to
Frank W. Morse, then general manager, and in that capacity has
covered the whole system time and
time again. With his appointment
to the position of purchasing agent
on this coast he entered very energetically into the duties of the office
giving very general satisfaction not
only to the officials of the company
but also making friends of all the
business men with whom he came in
contact. In the early days of his
residence on the coast he was for a
considerable time the only official of
the company on the Pacific, and important duties often had to be assigned to him. His business ability
at such times made itself manifest
and he assisted materially in popularizing the company which he represented.
Mr. McNicholl will not be accompanied by Mrs. McNicholl, who will
remain with the family In Vancouver
ior a time until her husband b< comes
settled in his new home.

oept where it serves a purely local
demand, is feeling the pinch of the
transportation situation and will in
the future feel it more severely. The
growth of the country in population,
ii production, in transportation business, has been marked. There has
not been a corresponding growth in
the facilities for transportation.
"An enormous volume of new traffic is being developed by the industrial advance of the country between
the Mississippi river and the Pacific
coast. All of this must seek its market; and much of it will be added
to the total that already over-burdens
our terminals.
"In the great markets of the eastern half of the country, in New York,
Cleveland, Buffalo, Chicago, the
ei'isis has already arrived. Traffic
growth and terminal congestion are
applying the brakes to business progress.     This  means  trouble  for  the
redly affected and of all the industries that depend directly or indirectly upon cheap and speedy carriage
for the commodities which they buy
and sell. It is a problem for everybody, since probably not one business
man in the whole country would fail
to feel the disastrous effects if It
were to be neglected for the next five
years as it has for the last ten,, and
to blight every form of activity by
paralyzing the whole trade."
The words of Mr. Hill have peculiar interst to residents of Prince
Rupert where terminal facilities on
a large scale for the future are being
installed by a big company. There
can be little doubt that the G. T. P.
uas profltted by the lessons of the
past just as the lines which Mr. Hill
controls have done. The company
is therefore providing against the
difficulties which have been so serious in older centres.

Interest   in   B.   C.   Is   Being   Aroused
Among London Capitalists
The financial editor of the London
Dally Mail, Mr. Charles Duguid, has
for some weeks past been urging
British capitalists to turn their attention to the great opportunities for
remunerative investment offered by
the timber lands of British Columbia. In a recent edition of the Daily
Mail, Mr. Duguid, who Is numbered
amongst the most prominent financial authorities in the city of London, stated that there was certain to
be a boom in British Columbia timber.
With a view of placing intending
British buyers of timber in possession of all possible information, the
Daily Mail lias engaged the services
of Mr. H. Marshall, whose name as
a timber expert is a household one
In  London timber circles.
Mr. Marshall is now here as a special commissioner for tbe Daily Mail,
and is engaged in inspecting various
tracts of timber lands which have
been offered him. It is expected that
a large British corporation will
shortly be organised to acquire and
develop certain tracts of timber land
in the province.
The Daily Mail itself has already
shown great enterprise in Canada,
and quiet recently established extensive paper mills in Newfoundland
where all the paper used in its own
and affiliated publications is manufactured.
Yukon Trade is to Find Its Base in
Prince Rupert Says Mr. Hartman
best known traders In Hudson's Bay
lias been In Ottawa, and In an Inter
view declared his Intention to Ignore
the  Washington  order.
Isaac J. Hartman, postmaster of
Dawson, Y. T., who is making his
first trip out of that territory in
three years, states in an interview
that the development pt the Yukon
country Is practically in its infancy
so far as the opening up of the valuable mineral deposits are concerned, because of the difficulty met with
through inefficient transportation facilities.
"When the Grand Trunk railway is
completed and we can secure a nearer base of supplies than is now possible," he said, "the work of opening up the great mineral deposits
which are known to exist, will be
greatly facilitated. Several of the
properties now being worked average $20 a ton from the grass roots
down and new prospects are being
reported every day."
"Last summer an experienced
miner was sent out by a home company to prospect in the Rocky mountains, 300 miles east of Dawson, and
when he returned reported the discovery of some wonderfully rich
fields of gold, copper, Iron and coal
In tbe vicinity of Peel river. Samples
of the ore brought in averaged 25
per cent, copper and 86 per cent pure
iron. The exact location of Ibis field
is still being withheld from the public and will not be made known until the company doing the prospecting is able to affirm hie report. There
is no question, however, but. what the
whole northern Bectlon of the country is underlaid with richer mines In
all the different minerals than have
yet  I n opened up."

of clean, legible, beautiful typewriting, is the next great step in
human progress.
Already—in all lines of business
and in all professions—the use of
pen and ink is largely restricted to
the writing of signatures.
Business Colleges and High
Schools, watchful of the trend of
public sentiment, are training a
vast army of, young people in tbe
use  of  Oliver   Typewriters.
The prompt and generous response
of The Oliver Typewriter Company
to the world-wide demand for universal typwriting, gives tremendous
Impetus  to  the   movement.
The American Oliver, with the
largest sale of any typewriter! in existence, was the logical machine to
take the Initiative in bringing about
the universal use of typewriters. It
always leads.
And the possession of an American Typewriter enables you to earn
money to finish paying for the machine.

Some striking features are presented in the criminal statistics of
England and Wales for 1908, just issued as a Blue Book. The fact that
the number of persons tried for indictable offences reached a figure
never before attained, Is attributed
largely to trade depression and the
prevalence of unemployment. The
total was 68,116, as compared with
61,381 in 1907. In 1857, the first
year in which statistics were collected, it was 54,667, and the highest number recorded in the intervening period was 63,286  in  1882.
Briefly, the main facts of the
year's returns may be thus summarized:—
1. Crimes against the person
showed an increase, unimportant in
2. Crimes against property, both
trivial and serious, increased very
largely, the probable reasons being
distress and unemployment prising
from depression of tiuila uutl labor
3. For the same reasons, vagrancy
increased and drunkenness diminished, but otherwise iiun-i.ndictable offences showed no important changes.
Ten years ago the number of persons tried for indictable offences was
smaller than tt had been for nearly
a quarter of a century, the figure for
1890 being 50,494, whilst the annual average for the five years ending with 1S9U was only 51,050.
Since 1899 the figures have progressively increased, except for a slight
cheek in 1906. The increase' in
190S over the figures for 1907 was
6,735, or nearly 11 per cent; as
compared, with the average of the
five years ending with 1907, the increase was S.051, or nearly 13 per
cent. In only one previous year has
the rate of increase in 190S been exceeded, namely, in 1861, when the
figures were higher than in the preceding year by 7,544 or 15 per cent.
Class Not  Increasing
Notwithstanding these somewhal
disquieting figures, there is no evidence that tiie criminal class is Increasing. Crime has Increased very

and, on the other hand, tbe reduction I by the decrease in the average
length of sentences) in the periods
for which he is forcibly restrained
from crime, it may reasonably be inferred that the members of the predatory classes are appreciably fewer
than in 1857, In spite of the fact that
in the interim population has almost
The connection betweeri crime and
unemployment is indicated by the
fact that the increase was mainly
concentrated in the counties affected by trade disputes. Chief constables whose views as to the causes
of the increase of crime in 1908
have been ascertained, almost unanimously ascribe it lo lack of employment. In some cases the influx of
unemployed workmen or tramps
seeking or pretending to seek, employment on public works, at
fruit-picking, etc., is mentioned as
the cause. It is pointed out that
where unemployment has not caused
more crime it has caused more prose-
tions for vagrancy.
In Sunderland, for instance, the
augmentation of the number of offences and prosecutions was due to
petty pilfering of coal, iron, etc.,
from the railway, docks, etc., during
tiie acute depression in the shipbuilding and ship repairing trades.
The additional offences in the colliery districts arc almost all of this
nature, The trifling character ot
the offences is shown by tbe fact that
the total of the property stolen in
211 larcenies in warrlngton was
only  .C3S9   16s   2d.
Some chief constables charge the
Increase of offences to the growing
leniency of the sentences Inflicted
upon old'offenders, to the reduction

good  conduct   in  prison,  and   to  the

Classifying Crli es
Although the great built of tl e additional offences were of a .comparatively trifling character, there were
proportionately large addit.'ons to
the headings for crimes of greatel
magnitude. On the assumption that
of tiie breaches of the law which may
in some circumstances be tried summarily, the more serious are, as a
rule, tried on indictment, the number of persons sent for trial for serious crimes In 1908 was 14,122, an
Increase of 1,523, or 12 per cent, as
compared with 1907. This followed
a gradual rise from 10,149 In 1900
to 12,575 in  1906.
The increase in the number of
cases  of  burglary,   robbery,   receiv-
A careful consideration of contracts let, and engagements entered
into with the Dom'inon and Provincial Governments, shows that the various Canadian railway companies
expect to complete and bring into
operation of about 7,000 miles of new
lines within the next five years. This
estimate is made on the basis of contracts already entered into and construction work immediately in sight,
and does not Include various projects
which may reach the active construction stage within that time, neither
does it include the mileage of yard
and terminal lines, and the second
track work in progress or contemplated by the C. P. R., says the Railway & Marine World.
From the contracts already in
hand It would appear that track will
be laid this year on not less than
1,500 miles, about tne same as last
year; and from the engagements entered Into with the different governments, it appears as If
there will be very little diminution
of that rate of rail\v..,v building for
the following three or four years,.
British Columbia will probably show
the heaviest Increase in mileage during the next few years, for it has
contracted with the Canadian Northern railway to build 600 miles, and
with the Kettle Valley railway to
build about 230 miles by the end of
1914. The C. P. R. has either under contract on Vancouver Island or

Great Northern railway, through its
subsidiary company, the Vancouver,
Victoria and Eastern railway, has a
considerable mileage under contract
and survey. In Alberta and Saskatchewan the Canadian Northern railway, and the G. T. Pacific railway
are under agreement with the Dominion and Provincial governments
lo build over 1,500 miles of main
and branch lines, and of these, some
mill miles have been placed undei

managing director says, a start this
summer. Next to these provinces,

years, principally in connection with
the Canadian Northern Ontario railway and the National Transcontinental railway.
The National Transcontinental
railway, when completed, will extend
from Moncton, N.B., to Prince Rupert, 3,550 miles. The first portion
of this line, which is being constructed by the Dominion government,
through a Commission, extends from
Moncton to Winnipeg. Contracts
have been let for the grading, etc.,
for the whole distance of 1804 miles,
and upon this mileage there are 742
miles of grading and 1,183 miles of
track laying to be completed within
the next two or three years, In this
part of the line is situated the Quebec
bridge, for which the Dominion government is preparing to receive tenders. The western division of the
line which is being constructed by
the G. T. Pacific Railway company,
extends from Winnipeg to Prince
Rupert, 1746 miles. Of this mileage
track has been laid on 915 miles
from Winnipeg to Wolfe Creek, west
of Edmonton, Alia., and a train service is being operated to Edmonton.
A contract has been let for over 200
miles of the line easterly from
Prince Rupert, and track is being
laid on the first 100 miles, while contracts are expected to be let during
the year for the remaining 500 miles,
situated almost entirely in British
A subsidiary company, known as
the G. T. Pacific Branch Lines company, has just placed on the British market an issue of £1,270,500 of
four per cent bonds, guaranteed by
the province, for the construction of
branch lines in Saskatchewan as follows:—Regiua to the International
boundary near Portal, 155 miles;
Regina to .Moose Jaw, 110 miles;
from Blggar, in a south-westerly
direction, 50 miles; Prince Albert
branch, 1J o miles; Cul Knife brunch
50 mil s. These lines are i<> lie huill
in addition lo others previously arranged for, upon which 55 miles of
track was laid in 1909. Contracts
have l"'i .i let for an exti i slon of 30
miles mi the Melville '-. oi kton line;
•iii miles on the Melville-Balcavres
11m , and it is ex] ected that work will
be gone on with the projection of this
line southerly from Regina to the International boundary this year, for
the grading of about fifty miles from
Biggar to Battleford. Under an
agreement with the Alberta government, the company has undertaken to
build about 600 miles of line in that
province, and has started construction  on  one  line,  viz.,  from  Tofield
lo   Calgary,  upon   which  track   wasl tracts  have   been   I
laid to Cambrose, 20 miles in 1909.
A contract lias been let for the extension of tne line into Calgary this
The Canadian Northern Ontario
railway has under construction 100
miles from Toronto to Trenton, as
the first section of its line to Ottawa. It is expected that contracts will
be placed during the year for the
balance of the line, and also for the
grading of the line from Toronto to
Buffalo, along the Toronto-Niagara
Power Company's right of way. The
extension of the line from north of
Sudbury to Port Arthur Is projected,
but it is not likely that any extensive work will be dene on It for a
year or two. In a recent interview,
President Mackenzie stated that the
C. X. R. expected to add some 600
miles to its lines on the western
prairies this year. There were about
200 miles of grading done in 1909,
upon which track was not laid, and
contracts have been let for 230 miles
of new work in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Other contracts
will be let in the near future. It is
however, in British Columbia, that
the C. N. It. will, through the C. N.
Pacific railway, be most active during Hie next few years. The company lias undertaken to build (100
miles by 1914, of which 50 miles are
to bo constructed on the mainland,
and 2u miles on Vancouver Island
during the current year. So far as
other Mackenzie, Mann & Company
lines are concerned, the only one upon which construction will be gone
on with this year is the Portland
Canal Short Line, from Stewart
along the valley of the Bear River,
for fifteen miles.
The C. P. 11. construction programme for the current year, includes in addition to the laying track and
the completion of lines graded in
1909, the building of a second track
between Winlnpeg and Portage La
Prairie, and the construction of 459
ni'les on six different lines, in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and
British  Columbia,   for   which     con-

The schooner Chrissie G. Thomey,
purchased by the Dominion government for an exploring expedition in
the north, is sailing from Halifax for
Nelson River, Hudson Bay, this
week. The company will consist of
six of a crew and an engineering
staff of six.
The vessel will remain in Hudson
Bay as long as the weather permits,
returning to Halifax September 1.
The engineering staff in charge of
II. Parrlzeau of Ottawa, will remain
until the ice forms and then start
overland  for  Winnipeg.
Mr. Parrlzeau is well known here.
In company with .Mr. Dodge he was
engaged In the first hydrographlc
work done in this harbor. Later
when Capt. Musgrave was put in
charge of the work on the Pacific
coast, Mr. Parrlzeau remained as his
chief surveyor, putting in several
seasons in the waters about Prince

capable officer and  his promotion lo
the charge  of tbe work he Is now
on is well merited.

"Woman's Work and Woman's
Place" was the title of an address
delivered recently in Vancouver by
Mrs. Edith Murray Dow, of Rossland,
under the auspices of the Local Option League. Mrs. Dow is a speaker
of no mean ability, and she proved
her thoroughness by the skill with
which she led her audience from
the woman's place in the home to
the woman's place in the world.
"It was an old saying," said the
speaker, "that a woman's place was

he was five years old.
In simple ami tender language the
speaker pointed oul the utter necessity of maintaining no false modesty
in explaining to their little ones the
mysteries of life. Parents were often
confused and non-plussed by the
questions  of their  children.    There
was  nothing for  it  but  to  tell  the
children the truth
No mother could stand being with
her children all the time. She need
ed a little social life. But she could
not afford to be away from them too
much. No church work, no mission
ary work, no social reform work
could take the place of the children
Parents, said the speaker, should bo
chums with their children, and let
them feel that everything that concerned them concerned their parents
No awakened mother could stop
and think that she had no interest
outside her own life. She must care
about the schools which her children
attended and even the trustees of tli6
same. And if she sent away her girl
to boarding school she should know
who was to bo her room-mate.

Argentina, which is now celebrating the centenary of her national
Independence. There are certain
broad resemblances between the two
which justify the application of the
title "Tbe Canada of the South" to
the Latin Republic. The population
of the two countries is much about
the same, and the rate of development of the one corresponds fairly
closely to that of the other. Canada
holds her own In most respects, but
in some she will have to look to her
laurels. A New York contemporary
has been drawing a comparison between the two in various directions,
it points out that while In the five
years between 1902 and 1907 the
mileage of Canadian railways increased from 18,^68 to 22,452; In
the five years from 1905 to 1910 the
mileage of the Argentine railways
Increased from 13,000 to 17,000, the
Invested capital in the latter year
being estimated at $900,000,000.
Federal revenue in Canada during
the years 1902-S rose from $68,000,-
000 to $80,000,000, or about 38 per
cent; and that in Argentina during
the years 1903-7 from $75,000,000
to $107,000,000, or about 43 pel
cent. In 1900 the total imports and
exports for Canada and Argentina
were respectively $320,000,000 and
259,000,000; in 1905 tile figures
were $453,000,000 and $509,000,-
000, Argentina having made an increase of 96 per cent in five years,
and (alien the lead. In 190S the
figures were: Canada, $004,000,000,
and Argentina $638,000,000. British
readers may also be reminded that
the two countries are particularly
close rivals for the supply of wheal
to the British market. Canada last
year selling 17,530,145 cwt., and
Argentina 19,583,000 cwt. Canada,
however, easily holds her own as an
exporter of Hour to Great Britain,
having last year supplied 2,249,201
cwt., a against Argentina's 86,600

Tuesday, July  5,   1! I"
Al a recenl meeting of the city
council, Aid. Pattullo Informed the
members of thai body thai representatives of Insurance companies
had urged the adoption by the city
of a sail water system for lire protection. Aid. Pattullo simply threw out
the suggestion stating that such a
system was recognized as of prime
Importance, lie did not suggest that
he would favor it, but thought it was
worthy of consideration.
Like everything else affecting the
welfare of the city, we believe this is
worthy of careful consideration, but
we believe that it will be found at
the present stage of the city's development that the installation of
such a system is beyond the requirements of the place. A high pressure
system such as this suggested is an
expensive proposition. At best it
can only be used as a means of lighting (ire and be confined to the business section.
Prince Rupert has an important
question to deal with relative to the
general water supply. That question has to be faced almost at once
and we are satisfied that that will be
enough for a few years without the
duplicating over a part of the city of
another water system. The money
that would be spent on the high pressure salt water system can, we feel
satisfied, be employed to far better
advantage if expended in connection
with the general water systm which
will serve the double purpose of a
domestic system and a means of fire
It is true in a wooden city like this
must be for some time yet the question of fire protection is a serious
one. Exacting regulations must be
passed by the council and he stringently enforced if the place is to avoid
heavy loss by fire. On the other
hand there are factors in this city
that tend to lessen the risk very materially. The humid atmosphere during a very considetaDle portion of
the year is an advantage in this respect. With stringent regulations
enforced so as to avoid the chances
of a conflagration starting, the risk
in this city for insurance companies
is not nearly as great as in many
places where more elaborate systems
for fighting fire exists.
It has become recognized that the
only effective way of fighting fire is
to be in shape to stamp it out in the
incipient stages. Once a fire has secured a hold, it is practically impossible to extinguish it no matter what
the equipment is nor whatever city
in which it breaks out.
Under these conditions the great
requisite is to adopt rules and secure
equipment that will in the one case
render it very unlikely that a fire
will break out, and on the other
hand will provide for the department
being on the ground very quickly.
With such conditions, Prince Rupert
is not, in our opinion, a specially
heavy risk, ft is, In fact, from the
standpoint of the insurance companies, a good risk.
Companies are unreasonable very
often. Thoroughly organized, the
insurance corporations are inclined
to enforce upon municipalities far
too stringent requirements in return
for the risk taken by them. It has
been found necessary fur Boards of
Trade, city councils and other public
bodies in he continually on the alert
in frustrate the companies in their
unreasonable demands. Prime Ruperl will he no exception to the rule,
and th.' utmost cure will have to be
taken to avoid an injustice being
worked on the city.
The building bylaw the city council is putting through is being care-
tully considered so as to avoid danger from lire. With it put in force
Prince Rupert will be readily capable of protection, and the representatives of the underwriters should
not be unreasonable in their demands.
After a terrible experience in
which he fell and slid 1,500 feet
down a glacier on Bitter creek, Jasper Kaeger, a prospector, still lives,
says the Portland Canal Miner.
Kaeger was working in a particularly
perilous place and be leaped to another ledge which broke off, precipitating him 200 feet in a straight
fall. Then he rolled and bounded
to the foot of the mountain. He
was brought Into camp and Is now

Attorney General Explains Why New
Legislation Should be Enforced
Hon. W. ,1. Bowser, acting premier, when interviewed recently
stated his reasons for refusing to suspend the enforcement of the Companies Act against which there has
been a vigorous protest.
"In the first place," he said, "It
would certainly hardly be my place
as attorney-general to suspend the
enforcement of an act against the
expressed will of the legislature of
the province. The provisions of the
act requiring outside companies doing business in this province to take
out licences or to register here were
Reted in justice to local companies.
It requires that if these outside companies do business after July 1 without registration, they shall be liable
to a fine of not less than $20, and
further than that they cannot sue
for debts contracted in this province.
"As an example of what I mean we
will say that a firm has a sum of
money invested in a biscuit or candy
factory here. It employs labor, pays
its taxes to the city and the province,
and so helps to bear its share of the
burden of government as well as adding to the prosperity of the company. But in the east or in the
United Stales is another company
carrying on a similar business. They
are probably able to get cheaper
labor and material, and ship in here
in competition with local firms without paying anything to the revenues
of the province whatever. Can anyone say that Is fair? I consider that
they should at least pay their registration fees, and I told the delegation that waited on me yesterday
that the act would come In force on
July 2 as It was Intended that It
"Another thing to be looked at is
this. Suppose some trouble arises
between a local mercantile house and
one of these outsiders, and the local
company wants to sue, Is it fair that
they should be compelled to go to
the trouble and expense of going outside the province to do so? If they
have any trouble with a local firm
they can sue right here, and If a
company is registered here they can

evening that as entertainers the society had nothing to learn.
The ball was held In Mclntyre's

decorated for the occasion, the eagle,
the emblem of the society, being conspicuous. Kauffman's oichestra
provided a good programme of dance
music and the floor was in excellent
shape. Joined with the fact that
about two hundred were present,
there was nothing lacking to make
the event highly enjoyable. A delightful supper was served and every

Negro Pugilist Proved Too Strong an  Opponent for the  Old
Time Master of the Ring, Jim Jeffries—Fight
Decided in the Fifteenth Round.
Jack Johnson, the negro, is still
the world's heavy-weight champion,
having knocked out James .1. Jeffries in the fifteenth round al Reno
yesterday. At the beginning of the
thirteenth round experts at the ringside passed out the verdict that Jeffries must simply slay and not light
if he hoped for any chance to stay
the limit. The fight was one-sided
from the start. The negro blocked
the old champion's blows at every
stage of the game and punished him
severely in the last five rounds of
the fighting. Johnson'went at his
man savagely. In quick succession
he delivered three knock-downs. Jeffries each time falling against, or
into the ropes. As Jeffries staggered to a foot-hold after the third
time he had been sent to the floor
Johnson sprang at him like a tiger,
and with a succession of lefts to the
jaw sent Jeffries down and out.
Johnson was seconded by Billy
Delaney, X. Cotton, Doc Rurey, and
Dave Hills.
Jeff's seconds were Jim Corbett,
Abe Attell, Joe Ch'oyenski, Bob Armstrong, Eugene Vancourt, Farmer
Burns, Roger Cornell and Sam Ber-
ger. Jeff's timekeeper was Bill Kal-
Tex Rickard announced that the
men were fighting for a purse of
$101,000; sixty per cent to the winner and forty per cent to the loser.
Rickard stated that he had given a
bonus of $10,000 to each man.
The fight began with odds 10 to 6
on Jeffries.
By rounds the fight went as follows:—
Round 1—The meu refused to
shake hands. Johnson sailed in with
great fury. After a long opening
session sparring, Johnson shot his
left to the face and they clinched.
Johnson pushed Jeffries back. Johnson swung his left to jaw as Jeff
roughed it at close quarters, the big
black shot his left again to the face.
The men locked arms and In the
break Jeff clouted his man twice with
two short-arm lefts to the face and
the crowd yelled. "Why don't you,
laugh?" shouted Corbett at Johnson,
and the latter winked and smiled
back at the former cuampion. The
men continued In locked embrace
and as the gong terminated the round
Johnson playfully tapped Jeff on the
shoulder and went to his corner
Jeff told his seconds to let him
alone; he would tight his own battle.
Round 2—Johnson came up chattering like a magpie, but Jeff only
smiled. "He wants to fight a little
bit, Jim," yelled Corbett. "You bet
I do, Mistah Corbett." As Jeff held
on, Johnson clouted him with a wicked right to the jaw. As the men separated from a clinch Jeff swung his
right to the stomach, which Johnson retaliated with two ripping left
uppercuts to jaw. Men closed together, Jeff leaning against the
champion with sheer weight of his
shoulders. It was a case of strength
against cleverness, with the Nubian
having the better of it. Johnson and
Corbett jollied each other.
Round 3.—Johnson came up slowly. Johnson jabbed left twice to face
as they clinched in. Johnson ripped
left upper cut lo jaw and neatly
blocked the boiler-maker's onslaught. As the men circled about,
the ring, Johnson kept up a constant
cross-fire of conversation. The men
separated and Johnson jabbed thrice
with left to the face and whipped
short-arm right to lace. Jeff rushed
but Johnson blocked him neatly with
vicious left to the face. Johnson
patted Jeff on the back as the round
closed. Johnson had a good advantage, but there was not much power
behind his stings.
Round 4—Jeff missed left swing,
Johnson rushed away, leaving a stab
to face. Johnson taunted Jeff constantly. "Don't rush, Jim. Don't
you hear what I am telling you,"
shouted Johnson, backing him up
with right upper-cut to jaw. Jeff
got in right to mouth and the blood
started flowing. "First blood for
Jeffries," yelled the crowd. Johnson
shot a hard left to the mouth, and
almost wrested his man against the
ropes. The smile had not faded
from Johnson's face. Jeff forced the
champion against the ropes with a
half-dozen short-arm body punches,
which found their mark in rapid suc
cession.     In   response  Johnson   shot
right to jaw.    It was Jeff's round.
Round 5—Johnson came up with
a volley of words. Jeff.paid no attention to his remarks, but rushed
in close and they wrestled around
for a spell. Jeff shot two rights to
body, which Johnson responded to
with a left upper-cut, cut ling Jeff's
lip a bit. Johnson a moment later
drove his right to jaw and then followed it with two left upper-cuts to
same place. Johnson jarred the
white man with straight left to the
mouth and they clinched. Both men
were bleeding at the mouth. Suddenly Jeff sent the black's bead back
a foot with a straight left tq mouth,
and the black looked serious as he
took his seat, not without giving
the boiler-maker the customary love
tap.    No damage.
Round 6—"I am going to mix with
him now," said Jeff. Three lefts
radiated from the champion's shoulder, catching Jeff on face in each
instance, and the blood seeped from
Jeff's left cheek bone. Both men
fought cautiously. A ring-side fan
asked Johnson if he would like a
drink. "Too much on hand now,"
replied the champion, as he ripped in
three left upper-cuts to the white's
jaw. Jeff waded in but met with a
nasty left uper-cut that closed his
right eye tight. Johnson followed
with two similar punches, and the
blood spouted from the retired champion's nose as he took his seat. Jeff's
seconds worked heroically on his
damaged optic.    Johnson's round.
Round 7—Jeff came with a ferocious rush and they clinched. Long
sparring followed without a blow
being struck. Jeff's eye was badly
bruised, but he never lost his head.
Johnson laughed as Jeff assayed a
right swing at close quarters. With
the men locked in embrace, Johnson' jolted his man three times over
the damaged right eye, and followed
this with right upper-cut to jaw.
Jeff stopped Johnson's bickerings
with straight right to jaw. Johnson countered with left and right to
sore face. The bell clanged, with
honors on Johnson's side, and Jeff
looking badly cut up as he took his
Round 8-—Jeff rushed In and the
black drove his left to mouth and
shortly after shot in two straight
lefts to face that carried force behind them. "Hello, jiuimy," shouted the black, "did you see that one?"
as they closed in without damage.
Jeff shouted "Break away, Johnson."
but Johnson did not break, and
laughed as Jeffries missed a vicious
left swing. Earlier Jeff, at close
range, had worked In two rights to
the body that failed to daze the
negro. Jeff pastered his man about
the ring, and the bell rang.
Round 9—Johnson kept up constant conversation in his corner before coming up to the scratch in this
round. He hooked left to Jeff's face
with great force and continued to
hurl tersely framed sentences at Jim
Jorbett. Johnson hooked another
left to the jaw that carried with it
a world of power. They clinched.
Jeff crouched and Johnson drove him
with a wicked left full tilt In the
stomach. A moment later he sent in
two left jabs to the mouth and eye,
but Jeff apparently paid little attention to these blows. The round
ended in Johnson's favor and with
Jeff's face bleeding from several
Round 10—Not much life marked
the coming to the center of the ring.
Johnson shot two lefts to the head
and follows:! this with a short-arm
right to the jaw. A long clinch,
mixed with wrestling, followed. Jeff
swung his right around the body.
The men confined themselves mostly
to Infighting and short streaks of
wrestling. Johnson always on the
alert to land a punch. Johnson
whipped two lefts to the jaw and a
right upper-cut to the jaw made Jeff
yell "Oh" audibly. Johnson peppered away with his left and clearly
out-boxed his sturdy opponent. It
was Johnson's round.
Round 11—Johnson smashed Jeff
time and again and sent in right and
left to the jaw, and the big boiler-
maker fought back wildly. Johnson
swung a terrible right, more of an
upper-cut, to the jaw, and followed
this with a clean right upper-cut to
the jaw, and Jeff almost weakened
Johnson with a left upper-cut. Jeff's
face was a bad looking itght at this
stage, but he suddenly electrified the
crowd by making a round-end rally,

landing bis right to the jaw and a
hard left to the body that brought
the crowd to Its feet. Johnson, however, had a good advantage.
Round 12—The men clinched after the black had missed a hard left
for the jaw, remaining in this position half a minute. As Jeff rushed
in Johnson met him with a straight
left and right upper cut to the jaw.
With breast to breast the black
swung bard at Jeff with left to body
and face, all the time keeping up a
conversation with Corbett. Johnson
cleverly blocked blows intended for
the body and sent home a straight
right to the sore mouth, starting the
blood afresh. The negro shot a
straight left to the face and then
sent his man's head back a foot with
a similar blow. Jeff went to his corner spitting blood and with the
honors against him. Jeff's seconds
were ominously quiet at this stage.
On the other hand the Johnson fairly
hummed with life and hustle.
Round 13—Dealing out severe
punishment with every lap, the round
ended with Corbett advising Jeff to
cover up and stay away. Jeff stared
blankly into the middle of the ring
and appeared to be in bad shape.
Round 14—Jeff was met with a
straight left as he got up and a moment later another spiteful jab went
to the mouth. Johnson placed bis
stomach within Jeff's reach and
tauntly cried "Ain't that a nice belly,
Jim? Why don't you hit it?" Jim
did not. They closed in, Corbett
importuning nis man to beware of the
dangerous upper-cuts. Jeff's right
eye was almost totally closed at this
stage. Johnson sent some rapid fire
of left jabs to mouth and the big
white shook his head. "I'm as clever
as you are, Jim," shouted Johnson
to Corbett, and immediately an exchange of repartee followed. Jeff's
seconds looked blue.
Round 15—A clinch opened the
round, and then Johnson rushed
his man to the ropes, flooring him.
The white man was counted out as
he bung on to the ropes and the
crowd rushed into the ring before
the time keeper could count him out.

Capt. Musgrave and his surveyors

Capture of One Made Near Port Angeles by Two Fishing Schooners
• Milling  Properties Showing Dp
ill  Good  Style This   Spring
Among the south bound passengers
on the Princess Royal last Saturday
was James Lipscombe, who for years
has been the agent of the White Pass
company at Atlin. He was on his
way east to visit his father who is
very ill at Parry Sound. He will be
absent for two months.
Mr. Lipscombe had only been in
Atlin a few weeks when he received
the news of his father's illness. The
camp, he says, promises well this
summer. There is, in fact, better
prospects than there has been for a
long time. This Is due to the fact
that the frfee milling properties are
looking bright. On the Engineer
group very rich free milling quartz
is being taken out and the operators
are very sanguine. In some instances picked samples have run Into
thousands of dollars to the ton. A
five stamp mill Is at work and the
camp Is very hopeful.
After a terrific struggle lasting
seven hours, a gigantic shark, 36
feet long, and estimated to weigh
more than fifteen tons, was captured by the combined crews of the fishing boats Good Partner and Pioneer
II. between Port Angeles and Port
Crescent a week ago. The monster
is believed to be the largest fish ever
caught in these waters.
The Good rnrtner and the Pioneer
II. much battered and battle-stained,
with crews nursing more or less seri-
out wounds, towed the mammoth
carcass into Elliott Bay yesterday. In
spite of the thirty horsepower engine
with which each is equipped, it took
the two boats fifteen hours to get
the big shark down from Port Town-
send. When pulled to the surface the
tall was seen to be full of splinters
and blue paint as the result of struggles to demolish the Good Partner.
The shark is 18 feet in circumference at its middle, and about
twelve feet around the head. The
huge triangular mouth on Ihe under
side Is live feet across. The flukes
of the lail are six feet apart. The
body is gray, and covered with liny
spikes which make it  feel like a file.

This has made it necessary that the

The mil ion that enough money to
buy Dreadnoughts also buys • ' toi y
is a maxim of the valorously ignorant, writes Arnold White in a London exchange. Unpurchasable are
the mosl precious elements in the
navies and armies of the world. We
do not, as a nation, "sense" tbe true
relation ol money to war; not do our
cousins across the Atlantic, any
more than ourselves, grasp the full
bearing of the problem of war. The
primary law of our national exist
ence is that no navy is the lease use
that is not good enough to win on
"the Great Day." A warship is
only a gun carriage afloat; tbe gun
—not the button, ihe torpedo, the
gold lace, the ram, the dockyard
the admiral, or the Admiralty—is
the dominant factor in naval affairs.
For the gun everything and everybody naval, from "my lords" to the
punkah wallah in the Persian Gulf
from Dreadnoughts to dinghies, come
into existence. On the altar of the
gun the slack must be sacrificed.
So self-evident a truth has not
long enjoyed official recognition. The
era of goldleaf—I will not use the
contentious word "paint"—Ib not
forgotten by anyone over twenty-one
years of age. When I wake in the
morning the sun illuminates a photograph of a portion of the main deck
of one of the scrapped battleships.
In this picture figures of Mercury,
covered with gold leaf, gilded capstan, and gilded iron and steel work
record the methods uy which promotion came to smart, commanders in
the later Victorian era. These adornments were paid for by naval officers, not by the nation. When the
shifting of the centre of gravity
from South to North compelled the
Admiralty to abandon its aversion
from perspective better shooting became the vogue—but with nil the
energy and inventiveness of tbe
early-Edwardian gunnery authorities
they did mil then, and do not now,
act on the principle that gunnery is
not a game, bin the most serious exe-
cutlve aci which the nation can delegate to a picked caste of highly
trained ami trusted officers and men,
Quick  Acting
That Hie Admiralty and its apolo-
gists have complacently regarded
gunnery regulations and rules as the
rules and regulations of a form of
sport is shown by the system of com
petition between ship and ship, and
between fleet and fleet, and the an
nual publication of gunnery returns
is given in precisely the same form
as batting averages or jockeys' wins
on the flat are published at the end
of each season.
Quick Hitting
That there was a time when tbe interest of the Fleet had to be secured
somehow on the side of quick hitting is not to be gainsaid. It was
necessary for a season to resort to
the expedient of pitting ship against
ship and fleet against fleet, thus enlisting the emulation of sportsmanship on the side of good gunnery.
As a means of waking the Navy a
form of sporting competition was an
excellent plan; as a means of securing proficiency in the art of winning
battles the plan leaves much to be
Naval war is not a competition between individual ships, but between
the relative weight of well-directed
lire that can be concentrated on a
fleet by a fleet. If ten ships fire
synchronously at one enemy ship nobody knows under our sporting system of gunnery who hits and who
misses. In a word the treatment, of
gunnery as a game is not an operation of war. As a line of advance
inwards actual war practice competitive gunnery has everything to
be Bald for il. liui as you do not

by all means let them reap what is
their due. If, however, such performances of those of the Mars and
Magnificent are the result of Inability to see the target, what are we to
think ot the system that compels a
ship to fire into the brown of an
Atlantic or North Sea fog which
hides the target from view? The injustice of such a system to keen officers is redoubled by the publication
of ships' battle practice in "order of
merit," without stating which ships
fired at targets they could see and
which were the unlucky competitor.1
who could not see t ^ mark.
Nor am 1 impressed by the M -
joinder to- my indictment, which is
based on the plea that the Lords of
the Admiralty are satisfied with the
"all round improvement." The question at issue is not whether the Department of Naval Ordnance is satisfied with itself, but whether the
British gunnery system is inferior
to the German gunnery system. If
it be true that fire control is further
advanced in the Imperial Navy than
in the Royal Navy, then it Is not gunnery lieutenants who should be reprimanded, but the Director of
Naval Ordnance who should be
brought to book and required either
to improve the system forthwith or
make way for an officer who will do

His Royal Highness the Duke of
Connaught, who, it is announced,
will be Canada's next governor-general, was bred up as a soldier, just
as the Duke of Edinburgh became a
sailor. His military studies began
at the age of nine, under Captain El-
phinstone, later Sir Howard El-
phinstone, of the Royal Engineers.
He has been no holiday soldier, but
saw service in the field during the
campaign against Arabi Pasha, in
1882, and was present at the battle
of Tel-el-Keber, at the head of the
brigade of Guards. Some years later
a report was circulated that in order
to keep the prince out of danger,
General Wolseley, the English commander-in-chief, ordered him to the
rear during the assault upon the fortified lines of the Egyptian rebels.
This precaution was said to have been
taken in obedience to Instructions
received from London, where there
was some anxiety as lo the personal
safely of his royal highness. The
story, however, was denied, both by
Mr. Childers, who was (hen in the
war Office, and by Lord Wolseley,
who declared emphatically that the
deke "took his chance like everyone
else; I hud no better brigade under
my command than bis," added Hie

The long and unfailing attention
in detail which has been such a
prominent characteristic with the
duke has endowed him with a mind
of remarkable clearness.    Once dur
ing the manoeuvres on Salshury
Plain the correspondent of a London
newspaper had been to the duke getting some particulars of the disposition of tbe northern army, of which
his royal highness was in command.
"Well," said the newspaper man afterwards, "they can say what they
like about people getting the credit
for the suggestions ,of others, but,
look here," pointing to some voluminous notes, "this is what the duke
has just given off to me 'mm his
own head without a scrap of paper,
as I'm a sober man, or a word from
a living soul." And he exhibited a
list showing the precise dispositions
of every fraction of the duke's extended command during the hostilities which has just ceased for that
In 1879 he was married to the
Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia,
then a girl of nineteen. She is the
Kaiser's second cousin, being a
daughter of the late Prince Frederick Charles, better known by the
sobriquet of "the red prince," who
served with much distinction as the
commander of a German army corps
during the war with France in 1870
and 1871.
The three children of the Duke
and Duchess of Connaught have inherited the popularity of their par-
neis. The eldest, Princess Margaret
Victoria, who was horn in 1SS2, is
married lo (lusiavus Adolphus,
Crown Prince of Sweden and Duke of
Scandinavia, in due course she will
become Quean of Sweden, and her
children will sit upon the historic
throne of Gnstavus Vusn. Sweden
will ibus bo one of the seven European kiuddoms lo bo ruled by descendants of Queen Victoria, tho
other six being Germany, Russia.

Prince Arthur's youngesl daughtei
is the lovely PrincesB Patricia, whoso
name is the feminine form of Patrick. Prince Arthur's son, who also
bears the name of Arthur, is a fine,
manly Englishman. Some years ago,
when the grand-ducal throne of
Saxe-Coburg-Gotha became vacant,
the succession passed to the Duke ot
Connaught, bul he renounced his
right of it. The next heir was his
son, tbe young Prince Arthur, but
after living in Saxe-Coburg for a
short time, tbe English lad found the
iron rigidity and the exacting etiquette of a small German court to be
not at all to his taste. He therefore abandoned his claims to the
German principality, thereby endearing himself to all good Englishmen.
The throne of Coburg passed to his
cousin, Prince Charles Edward, son
of tbe late Duke of Albany, the
youngest son of Victoria.

in a recent speech at Liverpool,
Lord Milner was emphatic on the
duties of the Mother Country towards our crown colonies.
"Our stepmotherly neglect ot the
crown colonies," he said, "has been
one of the least honorable pages in
our history. As governors of the
native populations we have held, at
any rate since the abolition of the
slave trade, a fairly high record for
humanity, but in respect of their
development we have been extraordinarily unenterprising. There was
now a more progressive and liberal
policy. It might, In given circumstances, be vital for our great industrial country to have the raw material upon which our principal industries depended produced within
regions under our own control. There
was now much greater competition
for raw material, and it was of signal
importance that we bad in our own
empire lands capable of supplying
these natural products upon which
there was to be in the future 'the
greatest run:'
"There was, therefore, a call for
more serious and systematic, study
of the conditions and for a more
highly trained and expert administration. We have arrived at the end
of the process of physical expansion. We do not want more territory—in truth it would nut be good
for us. We have enormous work he-
fore us in making the best of the
territories we already possess. Nothing strikes me more constantly in
what I might call the misdirection of
national energy than the extraor-
llnary contrast between the amount
of time and labor and ingenuity—
and, I might add, of temper—which
is expended upon the least of our
home political questions compared
with the plentiful lack of energy devoted to even the biggest problems
of empire, and especially the biggesl
problems of our crown colonies.."

To  Exhibit   Fruit
Vernon.—At a recent meeting of
the board of trade of Vernon, M. J.
O'Brien reported that the committee
appointed to solicit subscriptions for
the exhibition of fruit in England,
had met with very gratifying success.
About $2,500 had already been subscribed, and more could \io obtained
If necessary. It would probably be
decided, he thought, that the board
would exhibit at the Vancouver apple show, as well as in the Old Country, but he expected that, all necessary funds would be obtained without trouble, as the project appealed
very strongly to all who had been
approached, and a cheerful response
had met the committee in its canvass.

Asbestos Deposit
Pcnticton.—A rich strike of asbestos has been muue on Manard's
ranch, two miles from Okanagan
Falls, according to report. Tbe expert states that a vein containing 1
to 1 1 inches of solid asbestos ore
has been discovered with a surface
width of 56 Inches. Bordering the
vein of asbestos are deposits of
nlckle and graphite. Samples of the
ore met with have been sent to the
coast to be assayed. If, as is expected, a favorable reply is received
development work will be commenced immediately. It is slated that
Mr. Manard has been offered $350,-
000 for the piece of his property containing the mine, providing that an
average depth of three Inches is
maintained throughout the length of
the vein.
Co-operative Move
New Westminster.—An Associated
Board of Trade for the Fraser River
Valley, embracing all the municipalities between Agassiz and the mouth
of the Fraser, Is the scheme that C.
H. Stuart Wade, secretary of the
New Westminster Board of Trade.
has been working on for somo
months. The object is the improvement of commercial and agricultural
conditions and the investigation of
such other matters as will be for
the general advancement of the entire district. To accomplish this
each municipality has organized a
board within its own area. Many of
the boards are having pamphlets issued pertaining to the particular district they serve; others are appropriating money for newspaper advertising purposes, and other
schemes are in the making. In consequence of newspaper and magazine
articles sent' out by the secretary
of the New Westminster board many
letters of inquiry are being received
In this city from all parts of the
Carried Bylaw
Vancouver.— By a vote of over
four to one, in tile heaviest bylaw
polled in the history of the city, the
properly owners of Vancouver gave
their assent to the False Creek agreement between the city and the V. V.

latter is granted sixty-one acres in

for the extinguishment of the riparian rights on the north shore. From
the opening of the ward polls at 9
o'clock in the morning until they
closed at night at 7 p.m. there was
a continual stream of voters pouring
in to register their opinions, and the
total registered vote of 3,374, not.

keenly the issue touched the average
ratepayer. Figures of the voting on
the bylaw were: For, 2,717; against,

New Car Shops
Kamloops.—The    C.    P.    R.     has
started big improvements which  will
result in the expenditure of not less
than $250,000.    The work in project
embraces  the  demolishment  of  the
present buildings and the building of
an   entirely  new   machine  shop   and
round house.    The new shop will be
constructed entirely of concrete and
si eel with cement floors, fitted in all
departments   with   I he   latest   appliances  in  the line  of machinery.     It
will be divided into four different departments,    including      the    engine
room,    boiler    room    and    machine
room. Besides the departments there
will be the offices of the foreman and
his assistants.    A Urge coal bunker
will occupy one section of tbe building.     The old round  house is to be
entirely  demolished  and a  new  one
constructed containing a much greater  stall  capacity  for  engines.     This
will  also  be constructed  of  cement,
brick and steel.    The entire trackage
of the present system of the yards
will  be  removed  and  relaid  in  accordance with the new buildings, and
will  In all probability  also necessitate the removal of the tracks now
running through the main thoroughfare.

Carrier Pigeon In North
Hazelton. — The Interior News,
published at Aldermere published
the following: "This paper has received the following message from J.
MacKendrlck at Babine Lake, dated
June 15th: 'Today there landed here
two carrier pigeons. They seemed
very tired and were exceptionally
hungry. On one leg of each bird
was noticed a small aluminum ring.
By means of some grain we captured one, but the other at once flew
away In a southernly direction. Inscribed on the ring on the captured
bird was engraved the following:
V.H.C. 957, 1907. On the bird being
released it at once started off in the
direction of its mate.' "
One-half of the human race makes
rice their chief food, says Science
Piltings. The people of India, China,
and Japan are rice eaters. A medical
correspondent, who has lived among
the Chinese and Japanese never

a food, he claims, is. equal to wheat,
rye, barley or corn, as to nutritious
value. It has this advantage, we are
told, over all oilier cereals as lo its

cereals take from two and a half to

The ('. P. R. trainmen who run between St. John, N. II., and McAdam
are facing a period of extreme discomfort owing to the caterpillar pest,
says the St. John Telegraph. This
seems now to be established as an
annual affair. Insignificant as these
worms appear when viewed singlj
or in small numbers, they have, for
the last three years, cost the C. P. R.
a large amount of money. Up to the
last few days of their stay last summer they were almost invulnerable,
mil delayed every train, freight and
passenger alike, which passed
through the district upon which they
annually descend. A successful
method of combatting them was at
last liii upon, however, and it Is expected that this will be effective this
season and that they will not be
nearly the nuisance which they have
been heretofore.
Trainmen who arrived here last
night: say that for a distance of several miles in the vicinity of Routh the
caterpillars cover the tracks so completely that not a glimpse of steel
can be seen. When the wheels of the
locomotives strike the worm belt
they turn uselessly, as if the rails
were soaped.
In previous years no amount of
steam or ot manoeuvering was at
first effective in removing the worms,
or In allowing the trains to proceed
at any kind of speed. It was sim
ply a case of the crew climbing down
and getting to work with brooms,
and this was not only very slow but
also very exasperating, for the caterpillars were there in billions, and
crawled on almost as fast as they
were brushed off. As an improvement upon the hand method the
scheme was tried ot nxing brooms to
the front of the cow-catcher, but
this was a failure.
When the trainmen were almost at
their wits' end, not only through loss
of time and extra labor, but also
through the sickening effects of a
trip through the infected zone, the
happy thought was at last hit upon
of utilizing the very power which the
worms were rendering useless to put
them out of the way. Steam pipes
were affixed to the engines where the
escaping steam would strike the
worms before the front wheels of
the engine ground into them. This
nearly did away with' the trouble.
Instead of burning the worms up
with an accompanying odor which often left the men almost HI, the engine calmly boosted the Invaders out
of the way.
The vast army reaches the rails
each year en route to its feeding
grounds. Every tree on either side
of the track,' as far as the eye can
reach, is stripped absolutely bare ot
leaves, and the district is desolated.
The success of the steam system this
year will be interesting to watch.

The magnitude of the emigration
problem is being attested on every
hand. For instance, no fewer than
forty-nine bodies concerning themselves with its various aspects, took
part in the conference held in London reci ntly, undi r the a sph ee of
the Royal Colonial Institute, says
Canada, published in London.
Again, i bough it is not wholly reliable, the annual report ol ;.:■' Board
of Tradi on "Hie passenger move-
aenl b "on the United Kingdom
and plai is abroad" contains a formidable mid suggestive array of
figures. In 1909 the total number
of "outward passengers" was 17 1,-
378, which compares with 386,411 in
1908, and has only been exceeded in
the years 1900 and 1907. Of ibis
number, 194,8117, or 41 per cent,
contracted to land ai ports within
the British Empire, 113,318 going to
Canada—an Increase of 17,890 over
the previous year—while 259,933
went lo the United States—an increase of no less than 61,012. There
could be no stronger reason for the
putting forth of every possible effort
to ensure both that emigration from
Ureat Britain should be conducted
on right lines, and that this great
stream of departing citizens should
be kept within the bounds of Greater
Britain. There is involved a duty
to the Empire no less than to humanity.
These    were    the    considerations
which underlay  the whole course of
the discussion at the Royal Colonial
Institute  Conference.    Diversities of
method  and  point  of view at times
obscured  them,   but  every  now  and
then they rose again to I he surface,
and  reminded  those    concerned     of
their  presence  and   insistence.     The
very fact that so many different societies took part speaks well for the
attention  that is being given to the
problem In the Mother Country. And
it was gratifying to hear   from    so
many  independent  workers     of  the
success which had   followed   settlement in Canada and other parts of
the Empire Overseas, and of the well
nigh unlimited field still lying open,
so be it the men and women are willing and able to work.    The multiplicity of   these   agencies    suggests
that some may overlap each other's
sphere  of  usefulness.    To  some  extent this is no doubt true;  it is inevitable in the circumstances.    But
there is another aspect of the situation.    The study of the problem of
emigration is as yet only in its infancy, and were there not numerous
societies  like  tnese  in  existence,  it
would not be approached from nearly so many of   its    different    sides,
Nevertheless,   that   there   Is   urgent
need for co-operation and co-ordination of effort there can be no doubt.
The   discussion   at    the     conference
made this plainer than ever.   Insofar
as the appointment of the committee
agreed upon will serve this purpose,
it is welcome.     It  i.annot,  however,
be regarded as other   than    merely
temporary In Its nature and tentative
in Its arrangements.    It will doubtless serve until the time has come
for  something  more permanent  and
more effective to take its place.
What that will be the conference
also took into consideration. It: is
sincerely to be hoped the conclusions
arrived at and resolutions passed will
nave the way for a definite step being
taken In advance. The end in view
is fairly clear, though the way to it
may be uncertain. It has been suggested that the Emigrants' Information Office might do more to coordinate the various existing emigration societies. That is no doubt true,
but It cannot meet all the requirements of such a central body as that
lo the necessity for which everything

The railways of the United States

seventeen railroad companies in the

out of the 368 whose returns are recorded, reported one year of safety,
so far, at least, as passengers were
concerned. The New York World
in discussiong these figures says:
"This gain in safety was accomplished along with tremendous increases of track mileage and with a
multiplication of risks through additions to train schedules. The mileage of the death Immune American
roads of 1908-09 was 159,657. Only
twice in half a century has the no-
fatality record been made on the
railways of Great Britain, which
have now, according to the bureau

City Council Will  Refer Them to New
Engineer Upon His Arrival
on the Scene.
Georgetown    Mill    Company    Would
Give Municipality Chance to Obtain Water  Rights
The city council at Its meeting on
Thursday evening dealt with questions affecting power for the city.
Two propositions were brought up
and discussed at some length by the
members of the council. Neither one
of them was in such shape that
there could be anything done looking
to the acquisition of power at the
present. Both were propositions, on
the contrary, to be looked Into as
sources for the future. The first one
discussed was that of harnessing the
tides as suggested by Aid. Barrow
some time ago and concerning which
the alderman is very sanguine, although he is not yet in a position to
say that the experiments now in progress will prove it practicable. Aid.
Barrow is favorable to giving the
city the fullest benefits of his investigations along this line, although
he says he would not refuse to share
in the advantages that might result.
There is no where else in the world
that Aid. Barrow knows of where the
experiments could be better carried
out than at Prince Rupert. The location where power is sought is in the
passage way which separates Kaien
Island from the mainland.
The question came up on Thursday night on a report of the finance
committee in which it was recommended that the application of Aid.
Barrow be opposed by the city, it
being understood that the Dominion
government would refuse all rights
if the city manifested a disposition
to oppose the granting of them. The
report further recommended that if
the feasibility of tbe proposition were
proved that the city stiould take
steps to acquire the rights, re-em-
bursing Aid. Barrow suitably.
Aid. Naden thought the question
involved in the power proposition
was altogether too important to be
dismissed as it was proposed. This
might become a very important feature of the power question in the
city. The city could not for some
time spend money in connection with
it. If the power could be utilized
It was a wonderful thing. II might
be ten or fifteen years before the city
could develop it. He thought it would
be better to try and induce capital
to look Into the subject, the city at
the same time safeguarding itself.
He would not like to see the thing
tied up.
Aid. Pattullo explained that If the
Dominion government would oppose
the granting of all rights to the
water if the city opposed it, the
recommendation of the committee
would safeguard the city's rights
there. It would prevent others coming In and alienating it.
Aid. Barrow said he had not given
up the idea of interesting people In
It. The city might either theoretically own these rights or it might
control its operation on the streets.
The scheme had not been proved yet
to be a commercial proposition. He
traced the history of the electric
lighting system from the experimental stage to the present. The city
did not need to oppose his application because he would withdraw If
the council thought it would be to
the disadvantage of the city.
Aid. Mclntyre could not see how
the city council could do other than
endorse the move made by Aid. Barrow because in the early stages Aid.
Burrow bad been encouraged to pro-
eeeil wiib ibis. He would like lo see
Aid. Harrow go on with his application especially in view of the fact
that be was pn,pared m turn It over

Mayor stork suggested thai the
city should have a standing option

one else could develop Ibis, let them
proceed. The idly could nol expert
to hold everything. If cheap power
were developed even by a private
corporation it would benefit the city,
as it would set the rate at which
power would be furnished in the
There was not the power given under the act whereby the city could
expend money on experimenting such
as had been suggested. He would
rather see others develop the power
than have it tied up indefinitely.
Aid. Hildltch did not want anything done until the city engineer
arrived, when he should be asked to
report on it.
Aid.  Hlldltch'e motion carried.
The other   proposition    thai     was
brought up for the consideration of
the council was that of the Georgetown mill power. This was introduced by Aid. Naden, who intimated
that the city could acquire it if it so
wished. He thought in view of the
necessity for power for light it might
be found cheaper than generating by
steam, and the proposition was well
worth investigating. This, also, will
likely be looked into by the new city
engineer upon  his arrival here.
Aid. Naden, in introducing the
subject of the waver power held 'y
the Georgetown sawmill, said he had
found it impossible to get any exact
information on the subject. The company Itself could not tell what power
could be generated. He had thought
it might be of Importance to the city
as a power proposition. The company was agreeable to hold the power
for the city until it investigated it.
It might be possible to develop the
power cheaper than by steam.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that there
might be engineers in the city who
could give some Idea of the water
supply  there.
Aid. Barrow said he did not know
the situation. There might be great
storage capacity that had not been
investigated. The report should be
treated as confidential  in any event.
The question was referred to the
fire and water committee.        •

E.   K.   Strathy   Retires   From   Management of Union  Rank Here
E. K. Strathy, manager of the
local branch of the Union Bank here,
will leave Prince Rupert with his
wife and family early in August.
They will make Edmonton their future home. Mr. Strathy retires from
the service of the bank and will devote himself to his own private interests in the prairie city.
In the removal of Mr. Strathy
Prince Rupert loses an estimable
citizen. He is a pioneer of the place,
coming here in 190S and opening the
Union Bank when this city was much
less pretentions than it is now. He
has made many personal friends and
popularized the bank with which he
has  been  identified.
After twenty years in the banking
business, during which time he has
been for the most part in the prairie
province, he has decided to retire
from tbe business and devote his attention to his own private affairs.
Mrs. Strathy is also popular in the
city and will be very much missed.
The resignation of Mr. Strathy
takes affect August 1. He may remain a little longer until his successor  reaches  here.

Skeena, Mr. Babcock said that while
there was a phenomenal run of salmon there was a lack of labor to successfully handle the pack. While
the provincial government rating
would allow 855 boats to the river

at work. The Indians seemed to find
work in the construction camps and
the canners were deprived not only
of their aid, but also the women of
the Indian reserves.
The large run Mr. Babcock ascribes in large measure to tho good

Day in a most fitting manner. It is
doubtful whether anywhere else in
Canada the natal day of the Dominion had more crowded into the twenty-four hours than had thi's city.
A start was .made early In the
morning on the aquatic sports. The
Dominion government survey ship
Lillooet was in the harbor for the
day, and Capt. Musgrave had her
gaily dressed for the occasion. The
motor boat race was probably the one
that excited the most interest, being
a handicap One ovt. a twelve mile
course. Twelve entries were made:
Alma, Juanita, Laura Edna, Sooke,
Meteor, Beluarte, Michin, Dowan
Deena, Telkwa, Starboard launches
of the government steamer Lillooet,
and the Ky Yex. The result was: 1,
Juanita, owned by F. M. Davis, I for
time); 2, Ky Vex, owned by G. T. P.
(first for speed); '.',, Lillooet, of S.S.

At noon the part which pleased
the youngsters most was put on. It
was the street parade with decorated
floats. The displays made by the different firms were highly creditable
and showed a lot of uard work on the
part of those responsible. The parade was made up at the corner of
McBride and Third avenue. Under
Marshal Beatty everything passed
off well. The Metlahkatla band, with
its dashing drum major wearing decorations that almost obscured him
from view, led the way. Following
that came the Prince Rupert Fish
Market's display—a wheelbarrow
with fish bearing date 1908 representing the original business, followed by Lindsay Bros.' four blacks attached to a large float displaying the

After a parade of the principal
streets, the awards were made on the
wharf. They were given as follows:
1, Fish Market; 2, Meat Market; 3,
Wellington Coal.
The land sports were held on First
avenue in front of the natural
amphitheatre overlooking the harbor. The sports were all well contested. Considerable interest was
added when Aid. Mobley assayed to
win honors as a high juniper, forgetting ill the rejuvenating climate of
Prince Ruperl thai he was no longer
a boy, .1. Q. Weston likewise followed the example of the city father
and although not winning prizes they
made some of the younger contestants retire from  the field.

Stewart   Will   Accept   Oner   of Aid
From Provincial Government
The citizens of the new town of
Stewart have endorsed the offer made
by Hon. Thomas Taylor on his recent visit to the camp. This arrangement is clearly set forth In the
resolution which was moved by Dr.
Kergin at a meeting held In the
northern town recently. The resolution was as follows:—
"Resolved, that the citizens' meet
ing go on record as approving the
arrangement whereby the government will advance $10,000 and make
a straight donation of $20,000, to
be expended for sewer and street
After an explanation by Dr. Kergin, the resolution carried unanimously. It binds the future incorporated city of Stewart and the Stewart Land Company to reimburse the
government loan of $10,000. The
proportion which the land company
will pay, it is understood, is $2,500.
T. J. Vaughan-Rhys spoke for several minutes on the subject and from
an engineering standpoint said It
was his opinion $30,000 would give
the improvements a sufficient start
for present emergency. He explained il was proposed to build two
sewer mains, one along Columbia avenue and along Fifth street which
would relieve the situation for the
present. A septic tank is to be placed
at the foot of Columbia street at half
Already  work    is   commencing  In
