ALDERMEN   DIFFER
Streets Committee Do Not See Eye to
Eye With Respect to Engineering Staff.
Aid.   Hllditch   in   Disfavor   with   His
Two Colleagues, Endorses Engineer'! Report
THE QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDS TO
SERVE AS A BASE OF FUEL SUPPLY
There is unrest among the members of the streets committee of the
city council. The members fail to
see eye to eye and last night the
council heard some of • the differences expressed. The committee is
composed of Aid. Hilditch, chairman,
Aid. Morrissey and Aid. Douglas.
The explosive point was reached last
night when a majority and a minority report were presented dealing
' with the question of the salaries,
etc., of the engineering department.
Aid. Morrissey and Aid. Douglas
agreed upon a report which differed
from the recommendation of the city
engineer on the point. Aid. Hilditch,
the chairman, brought in a minority
report which endorsed the city engineer's recommendations, the salaries
being somewhat lower under it than
under the majority report.
The majority report recommended
that Mr. Lucas be appointed chief assistant to the engineer at a salary of
$200 a month;  that Mr. Simpson be
DEATHS FROM HEAT
(Special to The Journal)
MONTREAL,    May  23.—Two
deaths have resulted  here  as  a
result of Saturday and Sunday's
intense hot weather.
On Saturday, Franoois Xavier
Ladecours, a farmer, dropped
dead while attending to some
monetary business in St. James
street, and John Laren, aged 71,
night watchman at the Canadian Rubber Company's office,
succumbed to exhaustion from
heat on Sunday.
hcief draughtsman at a salary of
$150 a month and that Mr. Heward
receive $125 a month. It further
recommended that there be no further increases for the balance of the
engineering staff.
Minority  Report
Aid. Hilditch's minority report
was as follows:
"I would recommend that the report as submitted by the engineer be
adopted;   that is
"That A. S. Lucas be appointed
assistant city engineer at a salary of
$175 per month.
"That Mr. Simpson be appointed
chief draughtsman at a salary of
$108.33.
"That Mr. C. T. Reward be appointed second assistant engineer, to
have charge of waterwork and sewer
connections at a salary of $125 per
month.
"That Mr. A. O. Oakley, construction engineer, receive $150, an increase of $25 per month, believing
that an eight months' service entitled him to an increase of $25 per
month.
"That Mr. J. A. Miller, transltnian,
receive an increase of $25 per month,
as he has been with the city since
the date of Incorporation and If
worth $100 per month then is certainly worth a raise now after nine
or ten  months'  faithful  service.
"That C. H. Newcombe, transit-
man, receive an increase of $8.33
per month.
"That an experienced municipal
engineer to take the place vacated
by Mr. Looker, at a salary not exceeding $100 per month, be engaged."
Aid. Morrissey's Views
Aid. Morrissey was not pleased
with the report as presented. The
reports had been garbled. They had
recommended an additional engineer. He wanted to know who was
responsible for the garbling. There
had been petitions come into the
council, concerning which the citizens were entitled to an answer, and
the feeling was that they were burled in the engineer's department.
The citizens were entitled to a reply.
He did not believe in any one man
power. The citizens demanded the
dismissal of the engineer's department In consequence of no report*
being forthcoming.    He wanted    to

Representatives of Two Companies are Taking in Machinery for the Purpose of Developing the
Coal and Oil Prospects-British Pacific Company Expect to Put Anthracite on
Market Before Fall-Boring for Petroleum on West
Coast of Graham Island.
While Hazelton and the district
surrounding it is on everyone's lips
at the present time with respect to
mining operations, there are other
sections of this northern part of the
province that have a very busy season in view. The Queen Charlottes,
about which there has been rather
less heard during the past few
months than for some years previously, seems' to have awakened this
spring 'to more pronounced activity
than ever before. The year promises
to be one of action there instead of
investigation alone.
Already active work is under.way
to test the coal bodies on the Graham
Island. Another boring outfit is on
the ground to be used in testing for
fuel oil on the west coast of the island. The fishing Industry is being
developed as never before and at
Naden Harbor what promises to be
the best of the whaling stations
owned by the Mackenzie & Mann interests is already in active operation.
With quartz mining under development and the opening up of the agricultural areas the Queen Charlottes
have a prosperous season ahead of
them.
Hi-itisli  Pacific  Coal
On the Princess Beatrice, which
reached here on Saturday, was W.
McMorris, of Vancouver, representing the British Pacific Coal Company, Limited. With him was Mr.
Archibald, formerly of the Bankhead
mines, and a party of six or seven
men. They left the same afternoon
for Queen Charlotte City with the
object in view of beginning work on
the coal properties held by them on
Gral.am Island.
Will Open Slope
Within a few miles of Queen Charlotte City, the party will erect the
necesssary buildings and begin the
opening up of the seams which are
teiere exposed. The operations will
be of an experimental character, being near the location of the old Cow-
gitz workings where years ago coal
was mined for the British navy, the
quality being regarded as equal to
that of the Welsh supply. Following
the work there there will be a permanent slope opened    at    whatever
point is regarded as the proper one
for it near salt water.
Tonnage  Assured
The company has in view the mining of a considerable tonnage a day
before many months pass. Machinery will be installed capable of handling the output and placing it at
deep water on Skidegate Inlet ready
for shipment. It is expected that before the summer is far advanced the
beds will be opened up sufficiently
to afford a small output for sale.
Within the past few months a sufficient amount of the stock has
been placed on the market to guarantee the necessary funds to develop
the mines to the producing stage.
The stock has sold very readily in
Vancouver and Victoria, the price
advancing from 25 cents to 35 cents
and 50 cents.
Expert's Opinion
The quality of the coal, Mr. McMorris says, is assured. It has been
passed upon by Alex Faulds, M. E.,
who pronounces it an anthracite. In
his report on the property, Mr.
Faulds says:
"Your properties are very valuable. The value of the 36,000,000
tons of bituminous coal on your
property, for one seam six feet thick,
should be not less than $120 per
acre, and anthracite, not less than
$180 per acre, the mean ore average
of which would be $150 per acre, exclusive of agricultural and timber
value.
"These 8,320 acres, or thereby,
are an excellent and adequate commercial assemblage for colliery operations capable of producing a daily
output of 1,000 tons for about 144
years.
"Taking the capitalization at
$1,500,000 at 16 2-3 per cent, gives
$250,000 per annum, and taking an
output of 1,000 tons daily, or 250,-
000 annually, at a profit of $1 per
ton, would produce $250,000 per annum, or the capital recouped In six
years, adding another year for contingencies, making seven years, or
say, altogether, at the utmost, a period of eight years.
"Taking the estimated tonnage of
36,000,000 during the life of the
mine at $1 per ton would give a clear
profit of $36,000,000, or $22.50 for
every dollar invested."
To   Dole   for   Oil
Coincident with the opening up of
the British Pacific coal fields, on the
eastern side of Graham Island, is a
mine being made to test the oil indications on the west coast of the
island.
Richard Parnall, secretary of the
British Columbia Oilfields, Limited,
is in the city. He is completing arrangements to take the tug Native
and a scow from here to Skidegate
to take the necessary boring equipment to the place wliere the work Is
to be done. This outfit totaling
about 50 tons is at Skidegate awaiting transhipment. It will be put on
the scow and taken through by the
passage between Graham and Moresby Islands to the west, coast and
there put into operation.
A force of men are expected at any
time  to  accompany  Mr.   Parnall  on
the trip and enter upon this work.
Will   Not  Take   Long
The work of boring will not take
long. Mr. Parnall says that he can
sink at the rate of about 30 feet a
day. He expects, judging by the formation, to reach the oil at about 600
feet. He is an experienced oil man
and has little doubt as to the tests
being attended with success. The
location is near the waterfront, so
that shipping facilities will be at
once available.
Important to City
The importance of developments
like the coal and oil production, so
close to the city, is difficult to
fully estimate. If these two commodities of fuel are found in commercial quantities, as is expected by
the promoters, it will mean that
Prince Rupert, will have within easy-
reach quantities of high grade coal
and a supply of oil which can be laid
dow-n at a very moderate cost. The
city under these circumstances, the
fuels being on salt water and requiring to be transported by water for a
distance of only about 50 and 80
miles, will give Prince Rupert advantages as a manufacturing centre
ahead of any city on the Pacific
Coast.
The  presence  of  oil     in    paying
quantities would have the effect of
revolutionizing the fuel question in
the north. At present the conversion of coal burners to oil consumers, both for steamers, locomotives
and stationary engines, is being
steadily carried out. With a source
of supply so convenient as the Queen
Charlottes, the inducement to use oil
here would be increased.
C. P. R. to Use It
Asked with reference to the proposed use of crude oil In the locomotives of the company between Vancouver and Kamloops, Mr. Whyte
stated that it had been fully decided
to make this experiment. Not only
so, but the vice-president has decided to recommend to the president the
use of oil a sa fuel in the locomotives
for the entire distance through the
mountains. One of the reasons for
this was the removal of the danger
from conflagrations in the great, forests of British Columbia. The losses
from fires caused by locomotives
throughout the continent has been
beyond computation and the use of
oil would reduce the danger to a
minimum.
Mr. Whyte also alluded in this
connection to the cause of the failure of the Immense locomotives
which are now in use.
"It is not a failure of the locomotive," he said, "it is a failure of the
fireman. A fireman shoveling coal
on one of these locomotives for a distance of 130 miles, is physically completely exhausted before getting to
the end of the run. When hiring
firemen at. present we look for
broad-chested, stalwart men. When
we use oil we will look not for physical strength, but. for intelligence.
We will need men skillful enough to
regulate the flow of oil to correspond with the use of steam."
With the increased use of oil,
however, the coal trade has suffered
nothing. On the contrary coal is in
much more active demand than before the days of fuel oil. There is,
therefore, room for the both to the
fullest extent to which they can be
recovered.
The operations for the next few-
weeks on the islands will therefore
be watched from here with the keenest interest.
RICH PLACER FIND ON THE NAAS
(Special Correspondence)
STEWART, May 20.—Prospectors
are arriving every other day from
the Naas Valley, where placer diggings are rumored to have been discovered. Tlie prospects are not on
the Naas, but a tributary called the
While River, running In on the
northwest side, south of Meziaden
Lake, about ten miles. The White
River has a number of smaller
creeks running Into it. Nelson, Wil-
loughby, Porter and one ortwo others. On all these creeks claims have
been located and prospecting done.
Men have been In there all winter,
working, and though a great deal
cannot be done while snow is on the
ground, the best Indication    of    the
faith they have in the district is the
fact that most of the men are going
back with grub and material to continue their efforts. Some of these
hardy pioneers mined in the Yukon
and other northern gold fields and
are experienced sourdoughs who will
overlook no chance where ability and
energy is called upon, to unearth the
coveted treasure. Two or three
small  quantities  of an  ounce or so
I have been brought out. This has been
washed from the gravel. As yet none
I have reached bed rock. Some are
side cutting towards the hank with
the hope of striking rim rock and to
avoid being troubled by loo much
water In the shaft. Whle putting in
the side cut, from two lo three cents
to the pan has been obtained, and,
as remarked before, those who are
working feel repaid and justified in
returning.
No Stampede
There sems to be on the part of
those engaged in the prospecting, no
wish to create false stampedes and
excitement. Rather, the reverse Is
the case. They are all reticent about
values, their attitude heing lhat of
making sure before proclaiming any
measure of success, A very worthy
stand. More details are expected by
June 1, when a number of those now
on Ihe. creeks are expected in town.
It Is just possible the governmenl
may be petitioned to exlend the close
season till the first of August.    This
would give claim owners time and
thorough testqb cmfw cmfw cmfw C
opportunity to get in sufficient grubstake and material to give the district a thorough lest and prove one
way or another the value of the diggings.
At tlie present time the way over
is by the Bitter Creek glacier, a difficult, and at this particular Beason,
a very dangerous route owing to the
fissures lightly covered with soli,
snow. Already one or two accidents
have occurred. A timely warning is
sounded ie, all who tire Inclined ie>
cross by this route. Ropes and long
poles should  be used  the sat is is

Additional Missions
As a result of the representations
made by Rev. G. R. Raley at the
Methodist Conference, three new
missions of that church will likely
be opened on the Skeena this year,
one at Hazelton, one at Copper City
and another at some other point.
Vital Statistics
The report of the medical health
officer, Dr. Reddie, presented at the
council meeting last night, showed
there had been for the month previous, fifteen births or 45 a thousand, estimating -the population at
4,000. There had been but one
death, an  infant.
Urgent Need
A vote of $75 was made by the
council last evening to be used by
Ensign Johnstone of the Salvation
Army in relieving a case of urgent
need.
Rack from Conference
A number of clergymen who have
been attending the Methodist Conference in Vancouver, have returned
to the north. Rev. G. H. Raley, of
Port Simpson, chairman of the district, Rev. D. Spencer of Skidegate,
Rev. Mr. Pierce of Essington, were
In the city on Sunday, the first tko
taking charge of the services In the
local Methodist Church. Rev. Mr.
Sing Is expected back tomorrow.
Grant to Celebration
The city council last evening made
a grant of $50 to the committee in
charge of the celebration on May 24.
Hack from Hazelton
Judge Young has returned from
Hazelton where he held court last
week. Out of the nine days that
he was away seven were spent on the
water. The rush up the river Is
great and from the mouth of the
Bulkley River the whole site is covered with tents. The place promises
to be a city of tents this season. The
weather conditions are fine, he reports.
Publicity Move
On the report of Aid. Douglas
last evening the council decided tee
subscribe for nineteen copies of each
of the local weekly or semi-weekly
papers to be forwarded to leading
hotels in tbe country. The papers
provide the papers at a half-rate for
Ihe purpose.
High Class Raincoats
.1. J. Sloan has laid In a limited
slock of the highest grade of waterproof coats for tho local trade. They
are oiled silk, soft and flexible and
with splendid wearing qualities. Although the season is decidedly
against the coats they are a safe buy
for later In tbe year.
THE WATER SWPIX*
City Engineer Has Prepared Plans  for
Improving the
System.
//
Pending     Permanent     Installations
Morse Creek May lie Used
to Augment It
In view of the tact lhat the report
of Mr. Thompson, the consulting engineer who is looking into the question of a water system for Prince
Rupert, has not arrived, it has been
deemed wise to adopt plans looking
to an increased supply until such
time as the permanent system is in
place. This is necessary for two reasons, first from the standpoint of
fire protection, and second to ensure
a domestic supply should there be a
long period of dry weather In the
summer or frosty weather of the
winter.
The number of services, with the
increased population, is steadily being added to. Tlie prospect of having the permanent supply from
Woodworth Lake installed this year
seems small.
The engineer has devoted considerable attention to the subject of
how best to increase the supply with
the least cost. The result of his investigations  was  made  known  in  a

report presented by the fire and water committee last night.
The proposition is to obtain permission to proceed with the completion of the Acropolis Hill reservor
at once, coniiectin git up with the
present system. The existing system can be supplemented also from
.Morse Creek. There are the remains
of the dams used by Ihe Grand
Trunk Pacific still there The water
is not likely to be contaminated and
the engineer recommends the getting
of pel-mission from the Grand Trunk
Pacific to use the waters of the
creek, repairing the dams and thus
obtaining a very considerable body
of water. By using Ihis, deep reservoirs are obtainable so that the
frost of the winter, if severe, would
not affect It.
He recommends ihe purchase of a
pump to be used in ease of necessity,
to pump the water Into the reservoir.
The remaining part e>f the system
consists of the Installation of the
permanent cast iron pipes along
Third avenue as far as Pulton.
These  will   be the  pipes  used   ill   the
prinabent system when Installed, so
that the laying of these will, in common with tlie- completion of the reservoir on Acropolis Hill, be perma-

NE   TEMERE DECREE
Roman
Catholic   Priest  Presents
Churches Side of Controversy.
His
He  Shows  That  the  Civil   Question
Involved Is Not Affected
by Order
At the present time when so much
discussion is taking place with respect to the "Ne Temere" decree of
the Roman Catholic church, the following, contributed by Father W. F.
McCullough, 0. M. I., will be of interest:
The exercise of the church's right
to frame marriage laws for her children is not in any way an usurpation
of the rights of the state in the civil
domain, says the reverend father.
When, for instance, the church decrees a marriage canonically null
she loaves absolutely untouched the
question as to whether that marriage
is civilly binding. This latter aspect
does not come under her jurisdiction
but falls under the exclusive jurisdiction of the civil courts. Consequently it is a mistake to declare
that the Catholic church, In her marriage legislation, seeks to override
the law of the land as far as the
effects of the marriage ceremony
are concerned. A marriage regularly entered upon under the civil law
is recognized by the church as civilly
binding upon the parties thereunto,
until the civil courts have dissolved
It, even though by the ecclesiastical
la*- the said marriage had been irregular and null. A divorced Cath-
olc, for instance, who, in defiance of
the church's law, presumed to enter
into a new marriage alliance, while
his first partner was still living,
might on securing a licence, enter
into a new civil contract. In this
case the church would not dispute
the binding legal effect of the union,
but, nevertheless, she would judge it
canonically null and void. And the
legal obligation must remain until
the legal authorities have dissolved
it. This is the attitude of the Catholic church. Surely there can be
no reasonable complaint here of
usurpation of the rights of the state!
The law of the land has lost none of
its efficiency since the publication of
the "Ne Temere" decree at Easter,
1908, agitators to the contrary notwithstanding. To those who still
have misgivings on this point the
words of a prominent English protes-
tant, the Hon. Augustine Birrell,
should be fully reassuring. When
this matter came up for discussion in
the British Houseof Commons, Mr.
Birrell said:
"The law knows nothing of papal
marriage legislation. We believe
that under it our Catholic fellow-
countrymen are not so free as we to
marry, and to divorce, and to marry
again. Our courts will continue to
administer our own law, and all who
apply for its benefits shall have
them. It has lost none of its efficiency since August 2, 1907.. This
ought to satisfy Orangmen and others who fear that Rome is about to
enslave them."
The fear that the marriage law of
the (-11111-011 was overriding the law of
the Ikand was voiced before Easter
in a resolution fathered by the indefatigable Sam Hughes in the Canadian Parliament, which asked that
the federal government lake steps to
prevent the Catholic church, in
matters of marriage, from overriding the law. The reply to Sir-Alan
Aylesworlh. the minister of justice,
that "the- government has no acquaintance wiih any law of the people- of Canada that has been overridden by an ecclesiastical dogma,
sheeuld effectively put this matter
beyond further dispute.
The decrees "Provlda" and "Ne
Temere" constitute today marriage
law within the- Catholic church. The
former decree was Issued January
IS, 1906, and Is In force In Germany
and, we believe, also in Hungary. It
provides that marriages between
Catholic and Protestant partners
contracted In the presence of a
Protestant minlsler, or a civil magistrate, are valid though illicit marriages. This means that the church
forbids them under penalty of mortal
sin, but not under penalty of nullity.
It is worthy of note that Catholics
In Germany may not contract valid
matrimony among themselves unless
in the presence of the parish priest
and two or three witnesses, as by the
Apostolic bull "Provlda, all Ger-
an Catholics were, at Easter, 1906,
brought under the decree "Tamest-
si," of the council of Trent. Hence
Catholics In Germany who would
contract, a matrimonial alliance in
presence of a civil magistrate or a
Protestant minister, would In the
eyes of the church not he married at
all; and could not, while continuing
in that state, receive the sacraments
of the church.
The decree "Ne Temere" concerning which so much confusion prevails
today in Protestant minds, went
into force at Easter, 1908, and applies to the countries not covered by
the bull "Provlda." It stipulates-
expresly that all marriages among
Catholics and, likewise, wliere one
of the contracting parties only is a
Catholic, are null and void in the
eyes of the church if such marriages
have taken place in presence of anyone other than an authorized Catholic priest. If a Catholic dare to
enter into wedlock in the teeth of
these prescriptions they thereby ostracise themselves from the Catholic church, and, consequently, forfeit
the advantages of membership. They
could not receive sacramental absolution nor the Holy Communion, nor
extreme unction until their union
had been validated before an authorized priest of the church. Were they
to die without a reconciliation with
the church they would not receive
the rites of Catholic burial. These
are among the qutstandlng penalties
attached by the church to the noncompliance with her marriage legis
lation as expressed in the "Ne Temere" decree.
It is obvious that these penalties
and restrictions belong to the purely
internal economy of the church; they
concern the relationship between the
church and her members and no one
else. What business, then, have outsiders in this matter? What right
have Protestant ministers to challenge the authority of the Catholic
church to frame laws for her own
members? Surely reasonable Protestants must recognize that the agitation being worked up over the
country for the purpose of compelling the Catholic church to repeal
her marriage laws, is, in final analysis, simply an intolerable attempt to
dictate the terms and conditions of
membership within the church! We
can fancy the cry of Indignation
were the Anglicans, for instance, to
attempt to dictate to the Presbyterians how the lays shou'd be framed
in the Presbyterian church, or were
the Presbyterians to claim the right
to compel the Methodists to change
the laws governing their members.
Such attempts would be resented as
unwarrantable invasions of the
rights of the parties affected. Similarly, the Catholic church resents as
an Impertinence the attempt to dictate her internal policy and legislation.
The foregoing article does not
purport to deal with the special relations that exist in Quebec province
where the matrimonial laws were
fixed long ago by treaty. The matter concerns chiefly the people of
that province and we may leave it to
them to settle their own difficulties.

Mysterious Departure of Excavators
in the Holy Lund on Waiting Yacht
The operations at Jerusalem of
the Anglo-American syndicate of excavators, threaten to cause an interesting diplomatic affair. According
to messages from Constantinople,
the Turkish government takes a serious view of the matter and has
sent high officials to Jerusalem to
investigate the charge that the foreigners despoiled the Mosque of
Omar and destroyed and carried
away sacred relics hidden from the
Romans when the city was sacked
by Titus, A. D. 70.
Meantime the present whereabouts
of the archaeologists and the nature
of their spoils is a mystery. The
members of the expedition with their
prizes embarked at Jaffa, Palestine,
fifty-four miles by railway northwest of Jerusalem, on April 19.
They went aboard Captain Marker's
yacht, which had been awaiting them
and set sail before the people of
Jerusalem learned what they had
done. It is probable that the yacht
Is now heading for England.
There is not doubt that the promoters of the enterprise hoped to
discover the Ark of the Covenant
and the seven-branched candlestick,
but a Constantinople despatch says
It Is believed that the explorers
found Solomon's crown, his sword
and his ring, and an ancient manuscript, of the Bible.
The extent of the operations is
shown by the statement that $300,-
000 has been spent by the syndicate,
which engaged the engineering experts who had worked on the construction of the London Subway
Railroad.

I GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC
TOWNSITE
w
ELLISON
The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
ownership.
ELLISON
SEE THE OFFICIAL MAP.—The
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite in British Columbia.    Does that start you thinking?
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact is a very important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the hub
ef the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were doing when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity l.1 Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns In the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Grand Trunk Pacific has put its
official stamp on Ellison. ' Do you
believe the company will do as much
for townsites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison. If
you desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
STUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order class with his wares. ELLISON is in the Missouri class. Therefore, I am not telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that can be readily verified.
 o	
STUDY     THAT     MAP.—If     you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-Iong-range,     then     you
should put your money into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money wliere the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
eeeeenpv
money.
STUDY THAT MAP.—It is not
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not inteiested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with  the exception  of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. 'Sou may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is   now   being   opened   up,   and   for
LOTS IN ELLISON TOWNSITE AND ROGERS ADDITION FOR SALE
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both by rail and water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
 o—■	
STUDY THAT MAP.—You will
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—ROGERS'
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and y-eiO for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the
balance  on  easy  terms;   no interest.

ENLARGING WORKS
Portland Canal Mining Company to Make
Additions to its Concentrator.
C. H. Dickie Paid Short Visit to the
Property Last
Week
C. H. Dickie, the most conservative of mining men, to whom the
mines near Stewart owe more,
perhaps than to any other man, paid
a short visit to the camp last week
going in by the Camosun. Mr,
Dickie has just returned from a trip
around the world. He went to the
mine to inspect for himself the situation preparatory to starting up
work in earnest this spring.
The company has decided to enlarge the concentrator, which was
put up last year, In order to meet
the increased output from the mines.
Mr. Sheridan, who, with Mrs.
Sheridan and child just returned to
the mine last week, is preparing for
a good season's work on the property. He will again have charge of
the operations and will soon have the
mine In full operation, expecting a
good season's work.
 o	
INLAND   MINES
Arrangements Made to Carry on Active Work on Gold Creek
This Season
Arrangements have been completed through which work will be
commenced on the placer ground
owned by the Inland Mines, Limited.
This ground, five miles up Gold
Creek, near Kitselas, is most promising ground, and it Is estimated that
it will require but a small amount of
capital to enable the company to
operate at bed rock.
At the recent meeting of the directors, H. M. Wood and Enoch R. L.
Jones resigned from the directorate,
the vacancies thus created being
filled by the election of Frank Jones
and J. W. Patterson. At the same
meeting Clare M. Giggey was elected
secretary.
COPPER RIVER DEAL
Reported That Group of Claims is to
Change Hands and be Fully
Developed.
After   Months   of   Steady   Work   on
Promising Properties Stokers
May  Make Deal
it is reported from up the Skeena
that the Swede group of claims on
the Copper River is showing up remarkably well. Already capital has
become interested in the showing
and there is every prospect that the
property may be sold so that fuller
development may take place.
The mines are only about four or
five miles up the Copper River.
There has been steady work done
on them for the past year or two, the
stakers keeping the results rather
close, but at the same time it became
generally known that the properties
were rich in mineral.
Arrivals from Copper City announce that the mines are likely to
change hands at a good figure, the
purchasing syndicate to fully develop
the proposition and put It on a shipping basis.
The transaction will have the effect of stirring up Interest in the
whole district which is believed to
have rich mineral areas.
BLOCKING OCT WORK
Supplies Being Hushed in for Hazel-
ton's First Mine by Every
Steamer
EXPECTS  GOOD  YEAR
G. A. Clothier Anticipates There Will
Ue a Lot of Work Done at
Portland Canal
G. A. Clothier, who spent a few
days in the city last week, left Friday night again for Stewart, where
he will begin an active campaign in
connection with the Indian Mines on
Cascade Creek.
Speaking of the general outlook at
Stewart this season, Mr. Clothier
thinks there will be a very active
year. The various mining companies
have made their arrangements and a
lot of legitimate mining should be
done in opening up the properties.
J. M. Faulds, the recently ap
pointed manager of the Silver Cup
mine, is in Hazelton laying in supplies and preparing for active and
continuous development of the Silver
Cup mine. Within three to four
weeks he will have the Silver Cup
camp fully equipped and supplied for
the summer, and as soon as work
commences theie will be no let up in
blocking out tonnage until the
branch line has been constructed to
Nine Mile from the main line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific and daily shipments of ore commenced.
The Silver Cup as a mine can now
be classed among the proven. The
first drift, run by Frank Brown, was
driven in a distance of 200 feet in
solid ore and obtained a depth of
about 180 feet. A second drift commenced by Manager Campbell, 150
feet below the mouth of the first
drift was run In a distance of about
100 feet by the late manager Joe
Verhschoyle, every foot in good ore,
and work on that drift only ceased
when he met a sudden death by
snow-slide last December. The third
drift, commenced about 150 feet below the second drift, was showing
up good ore when supplies ran short
this spring.
Manager Faulds has not been
over the ground yet, so cannot say
for a certainty on just what drift he
will put the first shifts. It Is safe
to say, however, that a large force
will be working on Silver Cup within another month and in addition to
the running of other drifts, drifts
2 and 3 will receive all attention
necessary to show u pa satisfactory
ore tonnage.

THE RED CLIFF
A.    Ersklne   Smith    Visits    Stewart
Camp, Preparing for the
Season
A. Erskine Smith, of the Red Cliff
Company, has gone on a visit to the
Red Cliff. The prospects are good
at the property, the    latest    report
from   the  superintendent,    H.
Smith, stating as follows:
"Since my last report we have extended raise another twenty feet
(total 248 feet), and broke through,
but not as expected, into the upper
workings. To prevent raise filling
with float rock that we broke Into,
I bulk-headed and commenced drifting under bulkhead towards upper
workings; when vertically underneath same will have to raise a little
to make connections. I am rather
glad of this opportunity to develop
ore bodies along its strike, so proving its value and continuity in this
direction. As soon as connections
have been made with upper tunnel,
if meeting with the approval of your
directors, it is my intention to drop
down another 100 feet in raise and
drife from this point both ways, then
raising from the lower to the upper
drife, we will then have a good many
thousand of tons ore blocked out for
stoping, and will then be in a posi
tion to keep up a regular supply o
a large tonnage. As only one machine can be used to advantage in
drift, I am utilizing another machine
to continue crosscut to intercept ore
farther to the south, being fully convinced that this work was not continued far enough to meet with the
desired result. Yesterday, after
shoveling snow, I got into the upper
workings, and was immensely
pleased with the valuable showing
you have there, for, although expecting a great deal from reports, it was
certainly beyond expectations. Work
for installation of water power plant
is going along satisfactorily; part of
the machinery for same is now at
Bitter Creek, and will be at the
mine in the course of a few days.
Everything at the mine Is going
along very satisfactorily."

No Smoking
The procedure bylaw passed

MATCH  IS OFF
Because of the demands of Frank
Gotch, the wrestling match for the
world's title between Gotch and
George Hackenschmidt, the Russian
lion, scheduled to be held at the
White Sox ball park on Labor Day,
has been called off by officials of
the  Empire  Athletic  Club.
Gotch asked $2 0,000 for his end,
besides an allowance ot" $1,000 for
training expenses and a 50 per cent
interest in the moving pictures. Joe
Coffey, matchmaker of the Empire
Athletic Club, called a meeting of
the members of the organization and
the opinion was thai Gotch was unreasonable in his demands. Unless
Gotch would accept the flat sum of
$20,000 Coffey was Instructed to call
off the. match, Coffey weni back to
see Gotch, bul the big gladiator was
just as insistent in his demands, and
Coffey said there would be nothing
doing.
In regard to calling off the match,
Gotch Bald as long us he holds the
title he Intends to get something for
meeting the foreigners who come
over here in quesl or his crown. The
champion believes in- lias asked
nothing unreasonable, and in- Bald
tin- match ought tu draw at least
$50,000,
When Gotch wrestled Hackenschmidt before, the Humboldt far-
mer said he received ¥6,000 tor his
end, while Hack received at least
three times as much. The champion
saiii he. had In concede to the Russian's terms when the latter was
champion and now that he is the
tltleholder he is going to make
HackenBcbmldt meet his terms.
Gotch said he would not concede
a single point. The champion is
anxious to retire from the mat game
and If Hack wants to get a crack at
his title he will have to use some
influence with the Empire Athletic
Club and make the club meet the
champion's demands.
Jack Curley. who is looking after
the interests of Hackenschmidt, said
Gotch is afraid to meet the Russian,
and is only looking for a graceful
way to "crawl" out of the match.
Curley has not yet given up hope of
getting Gotch Into the ring, and believes some sort of compromise can
be reached whereby the bout, will be
held.

(Special to The Journal)
OTATWA, May 23.—The governmenl has issued a call for tenders
for the construction of the first 120
miles of the Hudson's Bay Railway.
The terminus has not yet been de-
eieleil, but will probably be at Port
Nelson, Which is a better port than
Port Churchill.
The vote or $2,000,000 passed by
parliament before it adjourned, is
sufficiently large to allow a start being made with construction work. If
more is required this season another
supplementary estimate will be
brought down before the prorogation
of parliament in the autumn.
Mr. Parizeau, who has been in
charge of a hydrographic party in
Hudson's Bay, is now in Ottawa with
considerable information with respect to the harbor of the bay.

done in  other countries where glacier climbing is indulged in.
Should the diggings prove rich, a
stampede is sure to occur, and many
rushing in totally unprepared for
such conditions, might come to a sad
and sudden ending.
Railway Work
Construction work on the Short
Line railway, from Stewart to the
Red Cliff property, a distance of
about fifteen miles, is being rushed
along. It is understood thel management will endeavor to have the
rails laid the entire distance some
time early this summer. Track-
laying on the lower end and grading
on the upper parts is being staedily
pushed along. The snow is leaving
the valley at time of writing, there
being only a few inches on the
grade, and that all above Bitter
Creek, nine miles from Stewart.
Mail Service
The steamboat service to Stewart
is, to use a western expression, "very
much to the bad." The Camosun
comes in Saturday and the Grand
Trunk Pacific boat on Sunday. Failing to get mail promptly on Saturday
night merchants and others must
wait another week before sending
replies lo business correspondence.
The freight boats have a sort of
hlt-or-miss, happy-go-lucky schedule.
It is really too bad something is not
donke to remedy this very annoying
state of affairs.
Among the Mines
Rumor has it that splendid oire
bodies have been reached on the
property owned by tbe Mann syndicate. If this is true, and it really
appears so, it will mean much to the
camp.
The Portland Canal Mining Company is making extensive improve-
meiils to their plant,, enlarging the
concentrator building and Installing
new machinery,. New offices, bunk
houses and stables have been erected
and the place is taking on the appearance of a small village. The
management has had all- the buildings painted and the surnundlngs are
be'ing cleaned up, giving the place an
air of cleanliness and prosperity.
Work in the concentrator will be resumed as soon as the additions are
finished.
Sheet Work
The Provincial Government Is
busily engaged In putting the sireets
of sie'wiii-t in a presentable condition. Graveling and grading and
blowing out slumps and making fills,
keeps a gang of about thirty men
constantly employed. Work has been
started on ihe Hear River road, re-
grading and corduroying where nec-
essary. A wing dam on Bear River,
just, above the first bridge is being
put in on the 1ft side, In order to
throw the stream to the centre channel and save inundation during the
spring freshets. Wards Pass Is to be
reduced and the road repaired, making thte drive from Stewart to Bitter
Creek a very easy and pleasant one.

Council Deals With Two of tne Applications Hade by Contractors.

Covering Unavoidable
Delays
s. *:*»:»** * * * * * * * * * * * * *,
The streets committee last evening presented a report relative to extending the time for the completion
of the contracts by two of the street
contractors. It was explained by
the chairman of the committee that
the engineer's department had not
yet reported upon the other contracts.
The report was that the city engineer's recommendations be acted
upon, which was to the effect that
in the case of S. H. Watson, two
weeks extra be allowed for railing
for culvert, for water, etc. It was
embodied in the recommendation
that no provision could be found to
allow an extension on, account of the
strike. The city was in no wise responsible for that and no extension
should be allowed at present on that
account. If deemed necessary this
could be taken up later.
In the case of J. R. Morgan, similar extensions were allowed, amounting to five weeks and two days in
all.
The report was adopted.
Road   Machinery
A recommendation of the engineer
that a rock crusher be purchased at
an estimated cost of $2,560, and a
25-horsepower engine for $1,400,
was discussed at some length.
Aid. Kerr suggested that the plan
adopted by Nelson might be advisable where the street roller was also
capable of providing power to run
the crusher.
The matter was finally referred
back to the committee to go fully
into.
Wants Information
Aid. Douglas wanted a return
showing the number of men employed in the city during April and
the number who were voters in the
city or residents here. He had himself investigated certain cases
brought to his attention and found
that recent arrivals from Vancouver
got work.
Aid. Hilditch explained that men
living in the city seeking work failed
to register themselves in the books
kept for the purpose in the city hail.
Ie became necessary to go out and
get men wherever they could be
found.
Aid. Douglas suggested using a
blackboard in front of t.ie city hall.
Aid. Clayton wanted to know what
permission had been given for the
building of a shack on the corner of
McBride and Fifth.
Aid. kirkpatrick explained that
the man who sought to start a fruit
stand there was old and in poor
circumstances. He had suggested
that it might be wise to build first
and then get permission.
The matter was referred to the
streets committee to consult with the
solicitor in the matter so thaet the
city might not become involved.
Aid. Newton consented to allow
the question of the work of repairing
Centre street to stand over for one
week longer.

One of the richest strikes of ore
ever made In the Boundary district
occurred in the Elkhorn mine, one
mile north of Greenwood, near the
famous Providence property.
The strike made was an 18-Inch
ledge of ore which will return values
of $100 to Ihe ton, Samples taken
from the property will assay all the
way up to $5,000, being Impregnated
Willi free gold and native silver.
The Elkhorn mine was operated In
the years 1903 to 1907 during which
time about 900 tons of ore were
shipped which returned values of
about. $90 to the ton About two
weeks ago the property was sold at a
tax sale to a syndicate composed of
James McCreath, A. S. Black, J. L.
White, J. Kinny and others of Greenwood. They put a man to work
cleaning up the property and one
blast of dynamite in the face of the
tunnel uncovered ore of brilliancy—
free gold on one side and native silver on the other.
A strike of good values was also
made at the argo tunnel at Greenwood. While a number of men were
making a wagon road across the
property a lead of about 12 Inches
thickness was encountered, which is
particulaly gratifying to those Interested In the property.

FATAL   ACCIDENT
Nan Near Dawson Mistaken for Bear
and Killed by Companion.
Body  of  Captain  Rankin   Has  Been
Found in the Ice in the
Frozen Yukon
While hunting ducks on the Klondike River, a short distance below
the north fork a week ago Saturday,
Joseph Shipman, chief mechanic on
the Big Bear Creek dredge, was mistaken for a bear and shot and killed
by Gustave Lendnll, a prospector, according to mail advices from Dawson.
Realizing what he had done, Len-
dall turned the gun on himself and
put a bullet through his own brain,
death being instantaneous.
Shipman lived an hour more after
being shot, death resulting from loss
of blood from an artery which had
been cut by the bullet and which
e-oiihl not be staunched with the
crude appliances at hand.
Bhlpman was a newcomer In the
country and came In last year to
work on the Bear Creek dredge.
Leudall had resided In the country
for several years.
Pat McCourt-, a fireman on the
steamer St. Michael, which was lying
at Dawson on the waterfront loading for down river, was drowned
Monday night, falling overboard
while intoxicated, according to mall
advices from Dawson. Others heard
the unfortunate man's screams, but
a moment later the body had passed
from sight.    It was not recovered.
The body of a man was found a
few days ago Imbedded In the ice on
the edge of the river at Stewart City.
It is believed to be that of Captain
Rankin, who was drowned In the
Stewart River last fall, falling from
a wood raft which he was floating
down to Dawson. The body is badly
decomposed, making identification
difficult.

IN NEED   OF FUNDS
Board Asks for a Substantial
Grant From the City
Council.
It Is Probable That That Rody Will
Make Provision for About
$5,000
The hospital board is in pressing
need of funds. During the past week
members of that body have given
their personal guarantee to the Union Bank in order to raise the money
necessary for Immediate needs at the
hospital in the way of meeting bills
now due.
Following tills action, the president, D. G. Stewart, wrote the city
council last night asking for a substantial grant to the institution to
meet the situation as It existed.
His Worship thought this would
have to go to the finance committee.
If there were any suggestions to be
offered which might assist the committee it would be well to hear from
the aldermen.
Aid. Douglas said that he would be
In favor of giving $5,000 if the
finances of the city would stand it.
Aid. Hilditch felt that the question
was one that had to be dealt with in
connection with the estimates. He
moved that his letter be referred to
the finance committee.
The motion carried.
The proposal of Aid. Douglas is
believed to be the sum generally
decided upon by the members of the
council as a grant this year.
ALDERMEN DIFFER
(Continued from Page One)
know who was responsible for the
garbled report. It was urged that
the engineer's department was overworked; yet they had recommendations from the department for leave
of absence for one.
Aid. Hilditch Replies
Aid. Hllditch sal dtha tthese remarks of Aid. Morrissey were directed somewhat against himself. He
wanted, therefore, to make an explanation. Aid. Douglas acted as secretary of the committee. Miss Un-
win had these minutes that he produced to go by. Was it any wonder
the repkort was not made out very
clearly. He had many times criticised the engineering department,
but he wanted to say that the engineer's department were working to
the very best of its ability to get the
reports down for csection 1, which
were the most pressing. He had explained this to Aid. Morrissey, and
Aid. Douglas, but they did not seem
to believe him. The reports were
not being shelved. He had the interests of section 2 far more to heart
than either Aid. Morrissey or Aid.
Douglas.
Aid. Douglas defended his minutes
He said that the chairman of the
streets committee "wanted to run
the whole show."
Aid. Hilditch moved the adoption
of the minority report.
Aid.  Kirkpatrick seconded  it.
Last Vein's Work
Aid. Morrissey called attention to
tlie fact lhat last year the engineering department had the laying out of
the street work. Yet with the same
staff that work had been done and
It was evident they were not doing
as good work this year.
Aid. Hilditch contended that last
year the council had for five months'
work the plan for the rough grading
only. There was nothing done with
respect to culverts or retaining walls.
The engineering department was
turning out twice the work this year
thai   was   done   last   year.
Aid. Smith wanted to know what
monetary consideration was Involved
betwee nthe reports.
Aid. Hllditch said that there was a
saving of about the same sum by the
two reports. The minority report
endorsed the engineer's recommendations, At. this time of the year he
would like to see harmony with respect to the engineer's department.
Aid. Morrissey felt that Mr. Lucas
should receive at least the same salary as his predecessor Mr. Clements,
he felt that Mr. Lucas would feel
insulted to have a salary fixed lower
than his predecessor's, especially in
view of the fact of his qualifications,
which were of the highest order.
Aid. Clayton favored the increase
to Mr. Lucas. He thought that the
Increase to Mr. Simpson was rather
too large.
Aid. Newton proposed to refer the
whole matter to the council at a special meeting.
The other motions were withdrawn and the motion of Aid. Newton carried to take this up at a special  meeting the following evening.

The train service on the Grand
Trunk Pacific will resume again,
General Superintendent Mehan expects, within a day or a little longer.
The bridge which was damaged during the winter, has been almost repaired and by tomorrow night the
service may start again.
A steam shovel Is at work now
about eight miles out getting out filling for use along the route. As soon
as the bridge is finished several
work trains will start ballasting and
the company will be able to handle
construction freight pending permission being given to allow a regular
service over the route.

LATE  COMING  IN
Owing to the fact that she was de-
laed in order to meet the convenience of a party of 600 commercial
travelers and their friends who were
making the trip from Seattle to Victoria, the steamer Prince George was
a day late in reaching here, arriving
Sunday morning, instead of Saturday
forenoon. She left again on schedule time on Monday morning.
The Prince Albert made the run
to Stewart in the place of the Prince
George this wek.
George A. Morrow is expected to
reach the city tomorrow on a short
visit.

Stewart. Within a few weeks he
expects to have completed the grading of the Mann railway there.

such that it is difficult to get enough
shipped in to meet the requirements.

Experiments to be Carried  on by the

Kltsumkalum.
Settlers in tbe Skeena Valley Enter
Heartily into Scheme of
Fruit Testing
Among the visitors to the city during the past week was Mr. Green,
one of the successful settlers In the
Canyon area of the Skeena Valley.
He reports that the summer is opening up very satisfactorily in the valley and that the prospects are good
for the season. There has been a
very heawy coating of snow to go off
this spring, but the weather has become very warm and the snow Is
practically all gone.
Speaking of the visit of Mr. Carpenter, of the department of horticulture, to that centre, Mr. Green
said that the farmers had consulted
with him in the matter of the experimental orchards to be set out and it
was finally decided to make a division of the trees among quite a number of the growers, this being
deemed the most advantageous way
of testing the district.
There is in the district just about
Kltsumkalum quite a variety of different conditions to be reckoned
with. The soil differs in the various
parts and there is likewise a wide
variety of exposures. The results
(hat might be obtained in one place
might not be a very fair one for all
the settlement. In addition to this
there are not very large clearings in
such shape that the owners would
care to devote a large extent to experimental purposes.
It was deemed best therefore for
the different owners to take about
twenty or more trees and agree to
give them the attention they require
nnd thus obtain practical lessons as
to I be best methods to follow.
The fruit growers in the district
have entered very heartily Into the
proposition nnd Mr. Green expects
that there will be splendid results
follow the experiment. The trull
area Is Increasing all the time and it
is highly Important that the settlers
begin right In  this Industry.

Fads   and Fancies
********
Recent importations from Paris,
says a New York despatch, contain
many striking and attractive novelties, and not the least interesting
among them are the short coats and
the taffeta frocks contributed by
some of the most noted fashion dictators of the Frnech capital. Many
of these little coats are quaintly picturesque to the poitn of "being fantastic, but others are piquant without being bizarre. Many of the
coats arc of the shirred and corded
type anil fringed at the lower edge.
It is expected that these little coats
will he worn a great deal this summer, both in black and in color, and
they are charming even when not
made en suite with one particular
frock. The fringed edges make a
good finish, and taffeta ruches trimming frocks of voile, etamine or
other sheer stuff, are usually finished with this same fringing. The
effect is especially good where the
taffeta is in the changeable colorings
now popular; for then the fringed
part is in one solid color and contrasts attractively with the shimmering, shifting coloring of the ruche.
Frequently this solid tone in the
ruche edges echoes other one-tone
trimmingc,. For example, a changeable etamine in, say, mauve and soft
blue, has the bottom of the skirt in
plain mauve taffeta. Above this on
tbe full etamine are lines of changeable mauve and blue taffeta on the
bodice, and a little coat of changeable taffeta has its fringed edges
showing a little line of plain mauve,
or perhaps the coat may be of plain
mauve taffeta.
Ruches, little prim plaited frills,
shirrings, cordings and puffings, are
the accepted trimmings for the
changeable taffetas made on early
Victorian lines. Many of the taffeta
models are simplicity itself, and a
preference may well be given to
those in which the skirts are not
complicated by rows of puffing and
cording and by shirring. An attractive model in changeable taffeta,
sent over by a noted designer, dispenses with this puffing, cording,
etc., and allows the skirt unbroken
lines and soft fulness, held down
closely by weights. The bodice is the
simplest of surplice affairs, with the
ubiquitous kimono sleeve, and the
only trimming on the frock, aside
from the lace of the modestie and
undersleeves, is a plaited frill of the
taffeta running down the front of the
skirt, and around the top of a hem
and bordering the upper edges of the
cuffs.
Another changeable taffeta model
showed the shirring and puffed skirt
trimming, but. with an almost plain
upper section to the skirt. The noticeable thing about this model, aside
from the material itself, was the
beautiful fichu of finely embroidered
muslin, yellowed in tone and exquisite in needlework, which almost entirely covered the short-walsted bodice, being crossed in front and carried around to tbe back.
The fichu is another early Victorian note so entirely in keeping with
taffeta and ruchlngs and bonnets
that it is not strange one should find
it upon man yof the taffeta models.
For that matter one finds it upon
models of all kinds, and the shops
are full of dainty fichus of one kind
or another. The most beautiful and
the most expensive are those which
are embroidered by hand after the
fashion of fine needlework of long
ago fichu times, but there are attractive fichu arrangements less finely embroidered, and a host without
embroidery of any kind—soft folds
of point d'esprit bordered by plaited
frills of the same, finest muslin
trimmed in lace or lace-edged frills,
plain net with plaited frills, plain or
lace-edged.
Color and embroidery are the
strong features of the new gowns.
Either the background or the em-
brolery Is colored, and a noticeable
increase In the size of the flowers Is
evident In the handsome patterns.
Huge flowers are'not now confined
to a straight border at the lower
edge of the skirt, They trail up almost to the waist in charming Irregular lines, making an allover embroidered hobfi of the pattern.
The fichu line, so much in vogue,
gives a very easy disposition of
straight bands that accompany these
robe patterns. The kimono sleeves
also can be cut in extension from the
crossed folds or the bodice. Bands
to edge the sleeves can be attached
under tucks by means of lace and
insertion. These embroidered robes
are made still handsomer by Inset
bands of Venice lace. The batiste or
hand-embroidered robes have real
filet or Venice, and Irish lace medallions are scattered with a lavish
hand on the expensive white robes
of linen.    Many lingerie robes are of
I the open-meshed voiles and marquisettes. On these are used beads in
white generally, but there is no ban
on delicate colors of the porcelain
beads. Of , course, the question of
cleaning arises when you purchase
these beaded robes, but the quality
of the fabric is such that a season's
wear can be enjoyed without the
visit to the cleaners.
Embroidered robes, whether in
handwork, beads or French knots,
that simulate beads, are features of
this spring.
The use of silk galon and braid is
again very much to the front. It is
especially in demand on plain dark
blue and black costumes, which are
often lavishly trimmed with soutache. Narrow soutache and embroidery on moussellne tunics is also
an  effective  trimming.
The use of black velvet as a band
or border round the hem of a lingerie or moussellne skirt is a startling and pretty mode for summer
dresses. Among the broderie Ang-
laise or embroidered linen gowns
this border effect is most becoming
and pretty.
Among new small head coverings
"bonnets" are fast taking the place
of toques and turbans. Bonnets of
all times and countries are copied in
these smart affairs, and they are
made of all materials. For dressy
year they are composed entirely of
flowers, accented, perhaps, by a
smashing bow of black velvet.
Open-work stockings are being introduced once again with the low
cut shoes and broad buckles. The
new black silk stockings are inserted
with Chantilly lace.
Jabots are worn on one side attached with a long pearl or jewelled
pin. Cameos are generally placed at
the waist and in the hair to fasten
a ribbon.
One of the latest parasols seen In
the shops was of Parisian silk with
strongly marked designs and colorings. The shape was rather odd
and interesting; it was gathered between the ribs to an elastic band. It
was untrimmed and had an extra
long handle  of  imitation  ivory.
Cluny, Irish, Venice or the heavier
laces are used on hats and can form
brims, crowns or entire shapes.
Generally the white or ecru laces are
used, but. dyed laces are making
themselves a place in the modistie
scheme.
Many of the Eton jackets have
large revers. They are either the
supple, folded satin shapes or the
straight flat ones. They can be of
contrasting color, embroidered and
beaded.
Silks in black and white are shown
in every shop. For linings, for entire
dresses, for underslips in frocks, the
black and white patterns are displayed. They lose nothing of their
pattern when veiled, but can be softened down by the open meshes of
tunics and drapery. In skirts, the
stripes will be used in different
ways. A band of the material emphasizing the horizontal line will be
adjusted at the deep hem. The
stripes on a circular skirt will be cut
to meet in a point at the centre
seam. Panels using the vertical
lines can be adjusted at the back.
When the idea is used with discretion the wearer cannot help but
profit. The lines of the ngure should
determine the disposition of the
stripes.
On hats there is a decided use of
striped ribbon or silk. This is used
'. e trim the hat for morning wear.
The black nad white silk Is used for
an Immense bow on high turbans or
large flat shapes. It need not be
alone in its striped g'ory. A touch
of color is given by milliners in a
piping or binding of either satin or
velvet ribbon. Cerise here Is also
the choice of the majority, although
royal blue and empire green are also
used for the touch of color that
seems to be In demand.
White hats are very much the
fashion, as they already were during
the past winter. They are worn with
tailor-mades when walking. With
these hats, blue, black or white
Chantilly lace veils In large figures are still worn.
Small bell shapes in white crinoline or tagal covered with large loops
of white watered silk are equally
charming.
Frills of lace, lawn or net have
taken the place this year of the narrow ruchlng, without which at one
time no collar was deemed complete.
Patent leather belts In black, blue,
red or white are to be a stylish finish  for linen  frocks.

PUDDINGS
WtmmW	
*
IJ. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * **** *
We may roughly divide puddings
into three classes—baked, boiled
and stewed—and if we understand a
few points about each method we
ought to be able to vary puddings to
any extent, writes Miss Kathleen
Ferguson in the News-Advertiser.
When baking a pudding you require an oven of moderate heat, and
if eggs are used in the pudding the
time must not be too long, as the
eggs become a hard, indigestible
mass. If eggs are not used the
iength of time is not of much consequence.
To the busy housekeeper, a milk
pudding without eggs, put into a hot
oven, can be cooked with very little
trouble, giving it from one to one
and a half hours.
Dolled puddings are not as much
eaten as formerly, but for a heavy
fruit pudding, where much suet is
used, boiling is a good method of
cooking.
Steamed puddings have practically
superseded boiled puddings, as the
steaming is a more delicate way of
cooking, and even a very rich pudding, is more digestible when
steamed.
To steam a pudding, you can use
any ot the up-to-date steamers, but
when you have not one of these, take
an ordinary saucepan deep enough to
hold the pudding mould, which must
be covered. Allow the water to come
the fourth of the way up the mould
and keep the water boiling round
the pudding.
If suet Is used In the pudding the
water must boll quickly round the
pudding, as suet requires a great
deal of cooking to be made digestible. If no suet Is used allow the
water to boil slowly, as the custard
mixture will be spoiled by quick
cooking, just as in baking the eggs
are hardened if the oven is too hot.
Mix puddings very well before wetting them, and never have the pud-
din gmixture too dry; if the mixture
is too dry the pudding will be heavy;
a little extra milk can always be
added, or an extra egg, even if not
in the receipt.
I shall give an example of each
class of pudding.
Hire  Pudding  Without  Eggs
Take three heaped tablespoonfuls
of rice, two tablespoonfuls heaped of
sugar, one ounce of butter, one pint
of milk. Wash the rice In cold water (just letting the water run over
it from the tap in a strainer), put It
Into a greased pie dish, adding the
milk and sugar, and, if liked, two
tablespoonfuls of currants (cleaned).
Bake all very slowly in the oven
from one to one and a half hours.
This pudding is very good for chil
dren, the absence of eggs making it
more digestible.
Rice Pudding  With  Eggs
Boil the rice and milk slowly together for fifteen or twenty minutes,
until the grain is soft. Cool slightly,
stir in two eggs (beaten), add sugar
and currants, and bake for twenty
minutes until pudding is firm.
Apple Dumpling  (Boiled)
Make suet crust thus: Take one
cup of flour, half cup of beef suet,
chopped very fine; two tablespoonfuls of sugar, mix all together with
cold water, forming a paste. Turn
on to a floured board, knead into a
round ball, roll out quarter-inch
thick, wet the edges of the pastry,
put into the centre a couple of apples
(sliced), sugar to taste, two cloves.
Close up the pastry around the apples, tie in a wet floured cloth, drop
into boiling water and boil quickly
for two hours. Turn out of cloth
and serve hot. The same mixture
may be cooked in a round ball without any apples, and, when cooked,
cut in slices and serve with maple
syrup or molasses or honey. This is
a nourishing food for growing children if thoroughly cooked.
Steamed Marmalade Pudding
Quarter pound of bread crumbs
(one breakfast cup), quarter pound
suet (one and one-half cupfuls, fine
chopped), one large egg, one-third
teaspoonful of baking soda, a pinch
of salt, quarter-pound flour (half
cupful), quarter-pound brown sugar
(one and one-half cupfuls, five tablespoonfuls of marmalade or any jam,
two tablespoonfuls of water. MIX
the crumbs, sugar, suet, salt and
flour in a basin, dissolve the baking
soda in two tablespoonfuls of hot
water, add It to above, heat up the
eggs. Stir the marmalade Into It,
pour it over crumbs, etc., and mix
thoroughly. Grease a bowl or pudding mould, shake brown sugar Into
It, tie a piece of greased paper over
the top, if therde is no lid to the
mould. Steam for two and one-half
hours in a deep covered pan with
boiling water, coming quarter the
way up the mould, turn out and
serve with marmalade sauce.
Sauce—One tablespoonful marmalade, two tablespoonfuls brown
sugar, one and a quarter pints of
water. Boil all for ten minutes and
pour around the pudding.
Note—Always prepare tins for
cakes and puddings before you begin to mix them.

PRINCB RUPERT JOURNAL
REORGANIZE MILITIA
Changes Introduced as i Result of the
Recommendations of General
French.
Sir  Frederick   Horden  Explains   the
Plans Before the House of
Commons
In the House of Commons, preceding the consideration of the estimates of the Militia Department, Sir
Frederick Borden submitted an explanatory statement. He pointed out
that the increases in the ordinary
vote were: Annual drill, $150,000;
clothing, $100,000; Royal Military
College, $25,000, and cadet corps
(new vote), $50,000. The first Increase was due to provision for 4 000
additional troops, and a larger camp
at Petawawa. The training establishment of the ensuing year would
total 6,0,000 men and 13,000 horses.
The new vote for the cadet corps Included $15,000 for permanent force
instructors, $14,000 for expense of
school teachers at military schools
of instruction, $10 000 as allowances
to school teachers who have disqualified as instructors, at the rate
of $1 each cadet instructed, and
$11,000 for equipment for cadets instructed. The only additional cost
in the pa yof the staff will be for
six general staff officers, for which
$20,000 is asked. Four of these are
to fill positions in the new divisional
organizations in eastern Canada
which are to take the place of commands and districts, one at headquarters and one for the west-
namely, the three districts west of
Port Arthur.
! General French's Plans
Sir Frederick Borden noted that
the recommendations of Sir John
French can be classed as changes in
organization and improved methods
of training and education. The mill
tla in eastern Canada will, as recommended, be organized as cavalry
brigades and infantry divisions. The
ten military districts will form six
divisional areas and four cavalry
brigades. This organization can be
effected with practically no dislocation of the existing system, as each
divisional command will include one
or more of the present military dls
tricts. The result of this change will
be to place under each divisional
commander the troops to form the
division he would command on mobilization and tend to associate during training the units which would
work together as a division in the
field.
To  Re  Raised
To fully form the six divisions the
to-lowing will have to be raised: —
ihirty-four bateries of field artillery, ten Howitzer batteries, one
heavy battery and ammunition column, six divisional ammunition columns, seven field companies of engi
neers, one telegraph detachment, fit
teen companies army service corps,
and four field ambulance units. To
complete the four cavalry brigades
the following will have to be raised:
One regiment of cavalry, one battery
of field artillery, three field troop
engineers, one company army service
con's, and one cavalry field artillery.. About seven years will be required to fully complete the organization of this plan.
General   Staff Officers
For the six divisions and for western Canada seven general staff officers are necessary. Utilizing the
services of the three officers already
in Canada, four additional officers
are required. General French fur
ther stated that, for the highly important duties connected with mobll
Izatlon three officers should be appointed to tbe headquarters staff
For these latter duties It Is proposed
to appoint at present only one general staff officer, instead of three as
recommended. The additional cost
involved will not exceed $20,000
The minister of militia pointed out
that there was an Increasing demand
on the part of officers of the militia
for instruction and education,
which could not at present be met.
He added: "There are other pressing calls which In the Interests of
efficiency, will have-to be attended
to, such as the training in camp of
city units, and the extension of the
period of cavalry training from
twelve to sixteen days, but It is not
proposed to ask for funds for these
purposes this year."
The former would cost    $80,000,
and the latter <.75,000 per annum.
Will Not Increase Cost
In concluding Sir Frederick stated
that the carryin gout of the reorganization of the militia and the improvements suggested by Sir John
French would not involve any in
crease in the cost of the service to
the country. The amounts required
for the proposed  increased artillery
and cavalry services would be gradually provided out of the present
general annual vote of $1,300,000
for arms, equipment, etc.

FRUIT TREE SHIPMENTS
Largest This Year in History of the
Province,  Indicating Fruit
Culture Development
While in Mission City, Mr. Thomas
Wilson, inspector of fruit pests for
the Dominion Government, gave an
Interview to the Record in which he
spoke of the fruit tree shipments to
this province for 1911 as undoubtedly the largest in the history of the
province.
The shipments this year, he said,
came from many parts of the world,
from Belgium, Holland, France, the
United Kingdom, Japan and the
United States. During the month of
April alone there were about 1,000,
000 trees and shrubs. During the
season just ended there was something like 3,960,000 trees came
through the station at Vancouver,
most of which was for this province.
Of the shipments about 2,000,000
came from the United States and
the balance from Europe and Japan.
It was mostly ornamental trees that
came from Europe. He Instanced
this as showing the prosperity of the
province; that its residents were in
a position to indulge in the luxury of
other than fruit trees. Of course, a
small proportion of the trees coming
in  were  for grafting purposes.
The trees came in on the whole
very clear of pests. There were no
cases of San Jose scale, but there
were a few of the trees slightly effected.
There was one batch of 10,700
roses from the north of Ireland, and
Mr. Wilson said they were the finest
stock of the kind he had ever seen
come into the province. They were
22 days from date of shipment until
they reached Vancouver.
It is only the American and the
Japanese trees that need fumigation.
The trees from Europe were found
not to require fumigation. The only
disease the trees of Europe have are
the brown tailed moth—a nest of im
mature caterpillars—and the glpsey
moth, a nest of eggs. But the trees
this year were free from thiB.
The majority of the trees were
apple trees, with a few carloads ot
peach trees.

MASSACRED CHINESE
Mexico City Turned Over to the Insurgents Results in Reign of
Terror.
Leaders   Were  Either   Powerless  or
Deliberately Allowed Atrocities to Be Practiced
(Special to The Journal)
MEXICO CITY, May 23.—Official
reports tell the story of the massacre
of 206 Chinese at Torreon, following
the rebel occupation of the town
when the insurgents entered the city.
The citizens were unable to control the mob and reports indicate
that scores of innocent residents
were victims.] The leaders either
did not hold the men in control or
else deliberately turned them loose
to prey upon the conqured and defenceless people.

TO CLEAR OFF LAND
William Saunders Will Put Fruit Area
on the Market at Copper
City.
He   Has   ill   View   Preparing   About
200  Acres  for  Subdivision
into  Small  Plots
William Saunders returned a few
days ago from Copper City wliere he
looked into the conditions as they
exist at the opening of the spring.
Mr. Saunders has gone on to Stewart
to look after some interests he has
there but will be back again in a few
days. The result of his inspection at
his townsite, of Copper City and the
country contiguous to it is that he
has practically made up his mind to
carry out his land clearing proposition.
He will, he expects, have about
200 acres of good land held by him
near the townsite cleared of its timber and put in shape for the growing
of fruit, for which it is admirably
adapted. With the clearing of the
area it will be subdivided and offered for sale so that the settler
going in will be in a position to at
once set out the orchard and grow
fruits. While the apple trees and
other large fruits are coming into
bearing there is an opportunity to
derive rich returns from the growing
of small fruits. The cultivation of
the strawberry plantations which are
planted in the spaces among the
trees is of benefit to the trees so that
■the double purpose is served by it.
There can be no doubt that. Mr.
Saunders is acting wisely in the proposed move that he is to make. The
demand is for improved land upon
which settlers may go and at once
proceed to get returns without waiting for the clearing. The cost of
clearing on a large scale is likewise
less than when done individually.

A  BOOST KltS'  CLUB
INDIAN IS  GUILTY
Kispiox   Native   Convicted   of   Manslaughter at Vancouver
Judgment Is Deferred I'litil tbe End
of the Sitting by Mr, Justice Gregor
Western Washington realty men
representing ten million dollars of
capital have formed the West Coast
Co-operative Association to boost
western >Vosbington land. The association will act as a clearing house
for Its members and will raise a
large fund exclusively for exploitation. L. II. Seelcy, Seattle, is president; G. 1). Grant, Tacoma, first vice
president;    h.  w.  Robinson,    Cen-
i ral ia. second vice president; Edward 11. Raymond, Puyaiinp, secretary-treasurer; II. W. Whltacre, Seattle, manager,
A verdict of manslaughter has
been brought in by the jury at the
Vancouver Criminal Assizes against
Andrew Crosby, the Kispiox Indian,
charged with the killing of an Indian woman named Janet in January last.
Crosby himself gave evidence in
his own behalf. He stated that he
had been drinking with the other Indians on the night of the victim's
death. He remembered her coming
in out of the snow with frozen
clothes, but knew nothing more unitl
he woke up outside next morning.
His impression was that the woman
had been drinking with them, and
had died of the effects. Believing
this he had gone to Constable Dougal
at Hazelton and had told him of the
white man who had supplied them
with the whisky, and had helped the
constable to look for the man, but
they had been unable to find him.
Mr. Farris, counsel for the prisoner, pointed to the good appearance
and excellent character borne by the
accused. There was only the evidence of a number of other Indians,
themselves crazed by drink at. the
time, to convict him. But even if
they believed that Crosby had committed the deed, it was his hand and
not his heart and mind that had
done it.
Mr. Justice Gregory, In summing
up, pointed out that drunkenness
could not be accepted as an excuse
for crime.
Sentence was reserved till the end
of the asiszes.
