CHANGE IN  GRADE
Contemplated Improvement Along Eighth
Street to Sixth
Avenue.
Move  Will  He  Made   to   Ascertain
What Can lie Done Towards
Getting Good Way
Aid. Morrissey at last evening's
council meeting took up the question
of a change in grade along Fifth
street from Third avenue to Sixth
avenue. He explained that it was
felt by property owners that there
should be something done to make
that an easy grade and in view of
the fact that the property owners on
Fraser street were agreeable to the
change it could be done. The owners of the Royal Hotel had agreed
now to the    necessary    change    on

Sixth that would be involved in the
whole alteration. He proposed to
take steps at once to bring the matter before the Lieutenant Governor
in council before Mr. Manson left
Victoria so that there would be approval of the change in case the necessary formalities were carried out
here in the way of waivers being secured.
Aid. Hilditch did not care to take
the steps advised until the matter
was gone into with the engineer.
In support of the proposition Aid.
Morrissey pointed out that If Fifth
street were so improved a very direct way from the proposed station
of the G. T. P. to the section beyond
Fifth and Sixth streets would be obtained by way of Fifth street.
The matter was referred to the
streets committe and in the meantime the necessary petition will be
circulated and the waiver of the
property owners obtained.

Apply to the Medical
Health Officer
The medical health officer notified the council last night that the
vaccine had been received by him
and he was in a position to comply
with the rules laid down for vaccinating all applicants under the provincial act.
It was decided to give public notice that the vaccine was on hand
and the rules of the province required vaccination.

ITS FIRST LUNCHEON
Canadian Club Entered Upon Its Active
Life Today at Prince Rupert
Inn.
Midday   Repast   Served   with   Archdeacon Colllnson as the Guest
of the Occasion
Under the most favorable conditions the Canadian Club entered
upon Its career today when the first
luncheon to be served under its auspices was given in tlie Prince Rupert Inn, Archdeacon Collinson being
the guest.
In every way the luncheon was a
success. About 125 of tbe citizens
sat down to a very well served
luncheon, the service being all that
could be asked for.
Judge Young, the president of the
club, presided and In an appropriate
way introduced the Archdeacon
after the King's Health had been
drunk.
The latter delivered a speech in
which he recounted some of the early days In Northern British Columbia. • He told of the first vessels to
call at these northern    coasts    and

ELECTRIC LIGHTING
Alderman Clayton Defends His Department and Criticises Alderman Hilditch.
The  Employing of  Kupt.  Love  in  «
Dual Capacity Defended by
Committee
A letter was received from Thos.
Burns, the late superintendent of
the electric light plant, last evening
putting in a claim for pay from
February 1 to February 22, and
from February 22 to March 22, he
claiming a full month's pay after the
date of his  dismissal.
Aid. Hilditch asked if Superintendent Burns had been responsible
for the lights being off one night.
He was informed that the men
said they were unable to give lights
owing to the switches not being on.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the communication be filed.
Aid. Newton seconded the motion,
which carried.
Later the report of the electric
light committee on the dismissal of
Mr. Burns and the employing of
Manager Love to have charge of
both the electric light and the telephone systems came up for discussion.
Aid. Clayton moved the adoption
of the report.
Aid. Hilditch felt that as there
would be no electricity used for
power purposes during the day and
as there would be little used in the
evening for some months on the
streets the salary was too high. He
thought the duties of Superintendent
Love would not be very great. The
telephone ran itself now quite well.
Aid. Kerr explained that the
number of telephones were being increased 35 or 40 a month. Manager
Love was taking the place of Manager Burns and a city electrician.
Aid. Hilditch could not see how
one could fill the office of three
men.
Aid. Clayton thought it was not
very becoming for Aid. Hilditch to
criticise the telephone and electric
light departments which were the
two best conducted in the city. More
especially was this the case when
the department over which Aid. Hilditch presided was found not to be
what it should be. There had been
a lot of talk about improvements
that Aid, Hilditch was to introduce.
Manager Love had found that instead of five tons of coal a day being
used, as estimated by the late manager, that two tons were being used.
Aid. Hilditch contended that the
consumption of coal being reduced
to two tons was due Jo the fact that
the plant was not doing the work
it was expected to do.
Aid. Clayton said that Manager
Burns had estimated the consumption at the present light capacity.
Aid. Kerr said that while it was
true the engine was not all that
could have been desired, that was no
fault of the present committee. Mr.
Love had served the city well. The
employment of him saved the city
about $300. He had shown his capacity by going down and starting
the plant up to give lights to the
city. He had furnished on 48 hours'
notice light to the hospital.
Aid. Smith explained that Manager Love had been employed because there was a lot of work for
him In extending the system. There
had been a lot of dilly dallying and
the employment of Mr. Love, it was
expected, would overcome it. One
reason why light was not furnished
to private parties was that the late
manager had ordered meters and
lironght them here without the necessary government  inspection.
Aid. Hilditch argued that the
plant had cost far too much. There
had been ?42,000 spent upon the
plant now while to keep within the
estimate of $60,000 there would
have to be twice as much power furnished on $24,000.
Aid. Clayton pointed out that the
additional plant would not cost nearly as much proportionately as the
first part. Aid. Hilditch's department, that of the streets, was the
worst managed in the city.
Aid. Newton agreed in part with
Aid. Hilditch. He agreed with the
committee's report if the plant were
j.ade a producer during the summer.
The report was adopted.
HOSPITAL  IS  OPEN
Patients are Being Received at the Institution on Fifth
Street.
Those Under Treatment at  Dr. Firing's Are to Be Removed
to New Quarters
The new city hospital is open to
receive patients and already several
of the beds are occupied. Other patients are arriving every day, so that
before the week ends Miss McTavish,
the matron, and her staff will have
the hospital quite well occupied. Tomorrow it is expected that the patients from Dr. Ewing's hospital will
be moved up to the new building.
Dr. Ewing is anxious to have the
change made as soon as possible and
those who can be removed will be
taken up at once. In future all the
patients from the Foley, Welch &
Stewart camps, who are under contract to Dr. Ewing, will be attended
to in the city institution.
Last Friday evening the formal
opening took place at the hospital
when a large number of citizens
were in attendance.
The Ladies' Auxiliary took a very
important part in the reception
which was given, the members of the
Board being present also to assist in
welcoming the citizens.
Miss McTavish, the matron, the
two nurses, Miss Stone and Miss Fulton, and the members of the staff
assisted in every way possible to
make the event an enjoyable one.
Assisting Miss McTavish in receiving the guests were Mrs. G. D. Tlte,
vice president of the Ladies' Auxiliary, Mrs. D. G. Stewart, wife of the
president of thp Board of Directors,
and Mrs. O. H. Nelson, wife of the
chairman of the House Committee of
the Board.
In one of the wards near the main
entrance a refreshment table was
provided, where Mrs. Hugh Dunn
and Miss Dunn, of the Ladles' Auxiliary, presided and served tea, coffee and other refreshments during
the evening. In this duty, which became quite a heavy one, they were
assisted by other members of the
Auxiliary, including Mrs. Stork, Mrs.
Arnold, Mrs. Wark and others,    e
The entire building was inspected
by all who were present, from the
heating plant In the basement, to
the nurses' quarters on the top floor.
General satisfaction was expressed
by all.
Gray's orchestra was present and

too alluring to dispense with a dance
and accordingly one of the wards
was cleared and an impromptu hop
put on.
Through the kindness of the city
council, electric light was provided

from the lighting station to the hospital which will serve until the permanent line is in  place.
COAIMITTE1)  SUICIDE
Insane   Man   Hanged   Himself   with
Towel in Lockup at Victoria
(Special to The Journal)"
VICTORIA, Feb. 28.—Bearing
scars of violence done to himself on
previous occasions when he attempted to take his life, Gwyn Elden Edwards hangd himself with a towel In
his cell at the city police station
yesterday. Edwards was being held
until last evening when he was to
have been taken to the asylum at
New Westminster.
POLICY REACHED BY
COUNCIL ON WAGES
There Will be no Formal Advance in the Rates Paid by
the City—Various Committees are Asked to
See That Men Get Rates to Enable
Them to Live Properly.
The city council last nighl disposed of thi demand of the Indus-
trial workers for 45 cents an hour
for work on the streets. A reporl
from the committee of the whole
council which considered the question last week, was presented, based
on the opinion of the solicitor, C. V.
Bennett, and the deliberations of the
council sitting as a committee in
private session.
The opinion of Mr. Bennett tended
to show that the city might be held
liable to the contractors if the rate
of wages was increased so that it
might be construed that their wages
were affected. In view of all this
it was decided that it would not he
a wise policy to formally increase
tlie wages as asked for.
The committee, however, goes on
record as recognizing that in view of
the cost of living here there are men
employed by the city who are not
receiving a sufficient wage. While
nothing is put on record as lo what
will be done, the different, departments are recommended to go into
the subject and remedy the sitna-
tion, As a result of this It is generally fell that here will lie increased
pay to many of the workers as a result of the Investigation.
The solicitor's opinion, which was
read last night, was as follows;
"In reply to your request for advice regarding tlie wages to be paid
the laborers and the fixing of the
same by the city council It would net
appear from the power granted the
municipal council by the municipal
clauses act that they have any right
to fix by resolution, or bylaw, the
standard rate of wages for workmen.
This would not prevent, them from
paying any sum thought reasonable
to any officer or workman in their
employment, in entering into contracts for work on the city streets
the council has agreed with the contractors that the minimum wage
shall he 371/2 cents per hour, and
should they now raise the rate ot
wages to 4e"i cents per hour, It would
be likely to materially Interfere
with the riglils of the contractors to
whom they have let the contracts. It
is a clear principle of law -that it
hy any act. of one of the parties tho
performance of a contract is ren-j
dered impossible, then the other side
may, if they choose, rescind tlie con-1
tract. Where, the raising of price In
wages would not make the performance of a contract Impossible, still
reasoning by analogy to this prlncl
SCHOOL SITUATION
Trustee Board Have Temporary Building
in View Before
Long.
Matter of Noon Hour nt the Central
Institution Now Under
Consideration
(Continued on Page Eight)
The members of the trustee Board
have under consideration the meet
ing of what promises to be an early
demand for increased school accom
niodation. At a meeting held yesterday afternoon when all members
of the Board were present, D. G
Stewart presiding, the subject came
up on a resolution being received
from the city council recommending
that a room be opened for small
children in the western portion of
the city.
The subject has been considered
at considerable length from time to
time by the present board and also
by last year's board. The council's
resolution will be replied to and the
situation will bo placed before that
body as it is presenting itself to the
Board at present. It had been the
intention of last year's board to open
a room in the old school for the
small pupils, but grading operations
made this practically impossible.
After going fully into the subject it
was deemed wise not to open a room
outside of tlie new school, the inspector having expressed himself as
strongly opposed to it in the interests of school management.
The Board, however, has through
William Manson, been in negotiation
with the government at Victoria in
the hope of securing a school site
just beyond Lyncb's store. The
opinion is held by the Board lhat if
that site is secured a temporary
two-roomed school may be found advisable in order to handle all the
pupils offering by the time the summer ojiens. Tlie council will be acquainted with these facts.
The Board considered yesterday
the question of extending tlie noon
hour in tlie schools when the opinions of the teachers were presented
on the subject. The subject was disf
cussed at some length but no action
was taken for the present at least.
It was feared that tlie extension of
the hour might result In practically
as many children taking their luncb-
es to se-iioeii witheim any advantage
being derived. There ewis also the
danger that in some <-"se-s children
would get wet going home at 12 and
would lie. kepi away from school
In the afternoon, thus Interfering
with Ihe work of Ihe school. In view
of ihe whole situation it was fell
advisable to let the hours remain for
tho present,
In this connection the chairman

AGAINST AGREEMENT
George E. Foster Gives His Views on
the Reciprocity Question.
He Sees  Danger in  tlie Policy Proposed—Destroys Canadian
Ideals
Anheuser-Busch's
mm
Specking in the House of Commons 0:1 the reciprocity agreement,
George E. Foster, ex-finance minister of Canada declared that the
agreement, brought in by the finance
minister altogether changed the conditions under which $ 1,800,000,000
of British capital had been invested
in the lines of Canadian railways.
That, investment, made on the
.strength of tlie national policy of
protection, which meant national
sentiment, was attacked by the proposed policy of reciprocity and capital ready to be invested will surely
go to tlie States wliere a stable policy for protection is assured.
Both political parties in the States
regard [reciprocity as an entering
wedge.
•Divide and destroy" is their motto. One after another Canadian enterprises will be destroyed and the
tendency will be to draw capital and
labor from Canada to the States.
Moreover, it was known that the ambition of both political parties in the
United States was to have a circle
from the Rio Grande to the frozen
north, inclosing a free trade country, with a tariff wall against the
world. Referring to the delegation
of l.DlKi fruit growers, Mr. Foster
pointed to the fact that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier was unable to promise them
any remedy or consideration for surrendering Canada's fiscal independence through tlie bargain between
Messrs. Fielding and Taft. But Mr.
Fielding was careful to keep bis own
coal scuttle undamaged and Mr. Patterson to sit tight on bis own biscuit
Sox in this arrangement.
This allusion to the slight interference with tlie coal duties of Mr.
Fielding's province of Nova Scotia
and the maintenance of the duty on
the product of Mr. Patterson's factory at Brantford, Ontario, evoked
cheers.
Mr. Foster reminded the House of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's promise not to
make any tariff revision until the
appointment of a tariff commission
—a promise made to the farmers of
the west and to parliament during
the present session. He charged Sir
Wilfrid Laurier with bad faith to the
people of the west and to parliament
when he lulled every interest into
sleep and even said: "Don't fear;
there will be no revision of the tariff until a tariff commission has
been appointed and an opportunity
given all interests to be heard." Another breach of faith by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier was bis assurance to the
House that there would be no interference with the preference to Great
Britain. Ambassador Bryce had
similarly advised the home government, and Premier Asquith on the
strength of all this assured the imperial parliament that no interference with the preference was involved in the arrangement. The
tact was that the government had
struck preference its deathblow. Of
the 102 items lowered under reciprocity 74 were items in which the
British preference was lowered and
in 30 the preference was wiped out.
These changes  involved  over    six
millions,  but a small  part of  Canada's trade, hut the effect  was  far-
reaching.    Mow, in the case of items
imported  from   Britain    now    made I
free would the preference    he    sus-1
tained, asked  Mr.     Foster,    adding, I
"Will tlie government give a bounty
011   these?"
That a final blow to preference
was dealt by this arrangement was:
shown by Ihe applause wherewith I
in tlie British House of Commons
announcement was received that it.
forever dished the cause of tariff reform. So perhaps, it. did, bul more-'
over it meant that Canada would be
impelled to join with tlie United
Siaie-s in political as well as fiscal
interests.
Ilritisb  Preference
Mr. Foster added that, the unreliable information respecting the effects of the agreement upon Ihe British preference had been supplied to
Mr. Asquith and Mr. Bryce at Washington.
"Tlie British preference," he de-
dared, "has been mangled, lessened
or wi|ied onl." Dealing with the effect of reciprocity on Canada, Mr.
Foster said that except cheese and
ffsh, the United Stales has a surplus
of every article Included in the arrangement. But tlie time Is roinlnt,
Then the United States will not be
able to produce sufficient for home
consumption, therefore, with a tariff

wall against the world, she seeks
more raw material and cheaper living, so that, fortified by conservation of its own natural resources
and a sacrifice of Canada's she will
he able to extend her foreign markets for manufacturing products. Already Liverpool fixed the wheat
price for the world, and all *hat will
vary the price, will be the cost of
transportation, a fact which President Hill of the Great Northern
Railway evidently had in hind when
he advocated reciprocity, leaving out
of the calculation, however, the ne-
e-essity of Minneapolis millers having
Canadian hard wheat for the highest
class of flour.
Mr. Foster declared the agreement sorely affected Canada's new
policy of conservation of natural resources, inasmuch as it would remove the right of legislatures to prevent the exportation of raw products
notwithstanding the advice of the
conservation commission.
National Considerations
Having dealt with the economic
side of the question, Mr. Foster said
he had no hesitation in approaching
it from a national viewpoint. Defence was necessary in times of
peace. The American view had always been to drive Canada into union, from the days of the revolution
to the present, chiefly by means of
harassing and repression, but Canada, having sturdily stood by her
position, was today respected a hundred times more by the United
States than if she had yielded like
a poltroon to such methods to force
annexation. Thus, the best of relations prevails, but only the method
was changed, and Mr. Taft said Canada had come to the "parting of the
ways," which • meant the time had
come for Canada to join the United
States, and Mr. Taft, recollecting
that Mr. Fielding had once advo-
cated the separation of tlie maritime
provinces from the Dominion and
Mr. Patterson had advocated commercial union, thought these two
men worth taking. Mr. Taft knew
also that Sir Wilfrid Laurier was a
political opportunist and seized the
time to act before such gentlemen
went out of power.
Mr. Foster quoted President Taft
at Columbus, Ohio, as saying that If
the present opportunity for reciprocity were neglected, imperial federation would follow. Canada withstood all the methods of the past,
earning thereby the respect of the
United States, and should resist this
arrangement, calculated to bring out
tlie same results. It was conquest of
Canada that was aimed at in 1775,
in 1812- and subsequently. It was
the conquest of Canada that was
pushing this policy today—conquest
of Canada by peaceful means, banishment of British power from this
continent.
First the Conservative and then
tlie Liberal party, in 1897, abandoned the quest of reciprocity. Under God's providence Canada re-
celved the kick of renunciation in
! vilti of reciprocity, for then the Ca
nadian spirit began to develop.
Mr. Foster, concluding, said:
"There is clanger, deep danger.
This path now entered leads away
from home. I pray, sir, that the full
meaning of this first step may soon
burst upon the Canadian Parliament
and the Canadian people. This land
is ours. We have made it, and
please God, we shall keep it, as an
abiding national home for our children's children to remote generations of happy citizens of an empire
whose name is synonymous with liberty, and whose permanence makes
for the triumph of the highest civilization and world-wide peace. This
proposal cuts square across this
ideal, endangers it, may throw it
down'entirely. It will weaken the
ties of the empire, weaken the affections of new generations, create new
attachments, till, like Samson of old,
we shall be shorn of our strength."

CONTROL  OF  NORTH  SEA
German  Naval  Expert  Declares  His
Country Cannot Hope to
Invade  England
"Rear-Admiral Steige, discussing
German naval policy in the Vossiche
Zeitung, points out that Garmany's
naval exercises and shipbuilding are
designed towards the object of keeping the North Sea open, as England's
first move in the event of war would
certainly be an attempt to close the
North Sea, and thus control of all
the trade routes, not merely to Germany, but to Holland, Denmark and
the Baltic,
On the other hand, neither at the
present time, nor as far as can be
seen in the future, can Germany acquire so strong a position in the
North Sea as to enable a landing In
England. In short, Germany Is unable to entertain plans of invasion
because supremacy at sea is beyond
her reach, but England, according
to Rear-Admiral Steige, can invade
Germany whenever she desires. Of
course such a British invasion, owing to the smallness of her army,
would be a futile affair, unless it
occurred In conjunction with a land
invasion by some other power.
Rear-Admiral Steige observes:
"We fully recognize England's supremacy at sea so far as her worldwide empire compels her to main-
lain a navy correspondingly strong.
But in view of the necessity of
avoiding absolute dependence, as far
as our sea-borne trade is concerned,
upon the good will of a naval power,
it must be emphasized that we are
keeping our naval construction at
Ihe lowest  limit."

Germany's Condition
Student of  Political Economy   Points Out
That Wealth Is Still Increasing
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
Is Germany capable of withstanding the financial strain of its growing armaments, which are already
enormous, but which are steadily increasing year by year?
The Fatherland has a standing-
army of 500,000 men and 3,000,000
in its reserves, Its fleet is rapidly
growing. Each year sees an 'additional enormous sum devoted to the
construction of Dreadnoughts, more
money spent on big guns, higher
expenditures for improving the personnel of the navy, and side by side
with this enormous and increasing
burden, a steady growth in the cost
of maintainng the army.
The last scheme of taxation introduced by the administration in
the summer of 1909 and accepted
by the imperial legislature, so raised
taxation that there are many who
declare the country has reached the
limit of endurance. Whether or not
this is true is a vital question for
Germany, because success in its contest fo rworld supremacy now depends o,i money, and on money
alone.
One of Germany's greatest political economists and scientists, Prof.
Ballod, has just published a highly
interesting treatise in which he deals
with the question whether the Fatherland's enormous expenditures for
military and naval purposes are reducing it to financial ruin. The professor proves by official statistics
that Germany's private fortunes have
increased $12,500,000,000 within a
decade, and the records of fire insurance companies indicate a similar increase in the value of tangible property. Nor is tbe country's
prosperity limited to the rich, work-
jngmen's wages having shown an
average increase of 48 per cent in
22 years.
Alongside of this growth in
wealth and wages, the professor denies that there has been a corresponding increase in the cost of living. The price of bread, be says, Is
not rising, lie asserts that coffee,
sugar, tea, clothing and other common necessaries of life are cheaper
than they wer a quarter of a century ago.
His statistics prove—or Mem to
prove—that the per capita consumption of rye, wheat, potatoes, sugar,
coffee and particularly beer, is materially increasing. There has also
been a considerable per capita increase in the consumption of meat.
Altogether, the professor sums up,
there can be no question as to the
laboring   classes'   prosperity.
From tlie growth of the Fatherland's national wealth, the statistician conies to the conclusion that the
country can continue to spend fortunes upon its army and navy without in any way neglecting the great
problems of education and social reform with which it is struggling—
not unsuccessfully, he adds.

LOOKING ELSEWHERE
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has given the
House of Commons the information
that his government has no suggestions to make at the Imperial Con
ference this year. This is not to be
wondered at. It Is more than possi
ble that Sir Wilfrid's attention is
more directed towards Washington
than It is towards London at the
present time. In view of the reciprocity arrangements with the United States the question of closer
bonds with the Mother Land could
hardly be expected to play an important part in the deliberations of
the Ottawa government.
CANADIAN CLUB
The initial luncheon of the Canadian Club in this city was today a
grand success. The club is calculated to fill a long-felt want in the
community Just as it has done in
other parts of the Dominion and
even in the United States, where a
few Canadian clubs exist, notably in
New York.
It is a rallying point where all
classes may meet on common ground
and without distracting appeals to
partyism, may listen to an informal
address by any one with a message
who may come to the city. The institution is one that deserves the
fullest support of the citzens of
Prince Rupert.
THE  WAGE QUESTION
The city council last evening decided upon its course with respect
to the wage proposition. Having in
its possession lega: r.7.'. e which '::■
dicated that complications might follow a formal raise In wages the
council took a course that should be
fair to all.
The workmen of the city will be
dealt with on their merits by the
different employing departments of
the city. Wliere it is considered the
wages are too small an increase can
be made, the minimum wage of 37%
cents still remaining. In this way
the city cannot be held to have increased the rate to the detriment of
the contractors.
Tbe city workmen could not as
labor men ask for a wage that discriminated between nationalities. It
is the boast of the labor organizations that they know no international boundary lines. In view of
this a uniform wage had lo be asked.
Tbe city council's action seems to
indicate that the members of that
body are prepared to deal very fairly with the workers. Already a decided disposition is shown to employ
men who are permanent residents.
This will, it. is to. be expected, be
continued. When wages are too low-
In any particular line of work these
men will be raised and in no case
will a lower rate than 37% cents be
paid.
SEEKING WIVES
Thomas Howell   Has a  Delicate Mis
sion in the Old  Land on  Behalf
of Single Men  of the  West
Mr. Thomas Howell arrived from
Canada a few days ago in search of
5,000 wives for tbe single farmers
and mechanics of the great northwest, says a London, England, despatch in the New York Herald. This
Canadian "Davvy," continues tbe
Herald, speaking for the army of
"Barklses," says tbe English lassies will have the choice of 50,001
bachelors, 30,000 of whom own their
' own farms and tbe rest of whom are
mechanics and artisans In the smaller towns.
Mr. Howell, by the way, makes
the interesting announcement that as
a result of his marriage mission tlie
Canadian Northern steamships will
in future carry a woman officer, who
will be known as the 'ship's mother." She will take orders direct from
the captain and rank next to him.
A special uniform Is being designed
.for her with three gold braid rings
on her sleeves in the approved naval
style. She will lake her meals In
the saloon at the captain's table and
be in command of her own staff of
assistants.
The women who will fill these
positions have ahead}  been chosen,
and their names nave been submitted for the approval of the National
Council of Canadian  Women.
The duty of the ship's mother will
be lo see to everything affecting the
comfort and well being of the women
passengers. She will have the fullest powers and be entitled to enter
any woman's cabin at any hour of
the day or night.
Mr. Fred Salter, European manager of the Grand Trunk Railway,
says:
"Western Canada is full of men
who are willing to become the best
husbands English girls could wish
for. These men are a fine type,
many of them college bred. English
girls must not think that the Canadian farmer is a big red-sbirted,
bearded man, with bettiing brows,
and whose clothes bristle with bowie
knives and revolvers. On the contrary, they are decent, hard-working,
thrifty, ambitious and the best physical specimens in  the  world.
"It is hard to understand why
Canadians must come so far afield
for wives when there are hundreds
of thousands of bright, beautiful
American girls, full of life and intelligence, in the manufacturing centres of the United States, all waiting
to be asked by these Canadian Bar-
kisses," comments the Herald. "The
only conclusion that can be drawn
is that his is another development of
the 'imperial preference' policy.
What ho!"
Local News
The use of the sidewalk by teams
alongside of the Exchange Block at
the corner of Third avenue and
Sixth street has been stopped. It
was decided by the council last evening to post notices forbidding the
use of it.
Stalker & Wells called the attention of the city council to a dangerous place at the corner of McBride
and Second avenue and recommended that a light or a railing be placed
there. It was referred to the streets
committee  last  evening.
At. the council meeting last evening tlie opinion of C. V. Bennett was
read relative to the claim put in by
Williams and Manson for pay after
tlie date of the dispensing with their
services as city solicitors. The opinion of Mr. Bennett was that the
(•'.aim was not a good one.
 o	
EDMONTON   POWER
Proposition Made to the Prairie City
to Supply It with Electricity
A proposition to turn over to the
city of Edmonton at the end of three
years an equipment complete, capable of delivering at the corporation
line 20,000 horsepower of electrical
energy from Rocky Rapids, on the
Saskatchewan river, 60 miles from
Edmonton, for the sum of three
million dollars has been made by the
Edmonton Heat and Power Company at a meeting of the Edmonton
city council and the public works
committee. At the present title the
the company owns only the right to
develop power at the Rapids for 84
years.
The plant as it would be delivered
would include tbe right to develop
power at the Rapids; the dam which
would have to be put across the river; the necessary machinery for developing 20,000 horsepower; a two-
circuit transmission line to the city,
and a sub-station.
The alternative proposition, that
the city should sign a contract to
take 10,000 horsepower from the
company for the next thirty years
at $27 per horsepower—a total payment annually of $270,000, The
proposition to sell the completed
plant was the one, however, to which
most of two hours' discussion was
devoted. The company offered to
lake off $2iMl,n()0 from the $3,000,-
000 providing they supplied tlie machinery to develop only 10,000
horsepower.

AN ALL-RED FEATURE
Festival  of  Empire  Will   Have  Display  Illustrative of Colonial
Scenes and Epochs
An exceedingly interesting feature
of the Festival of Empire, which
opens at the Crystal Palace in May,
will be the All-Red Route, which
will consist of a railway and steamboat service running through Hie
Empire City in the extensive grounds
of the Palace wliere the government
buildings of tbe various dominions
of the Empire are located. The work
of construction has now been commenced. A trip on tlie All-Red
Route will enable the visitor to the
festival lo obtain a glimpse of our
ast empkire, the beamy and Industrial and  productive  wealth  of tlie
various colonies. Tlie railway line,
is one and a half miles in length,
and the passenger is for the greater
part, under cover, yet seeing open
scenes.
Boarding the electric train at the
Pageant Station, the passenger is
taken on a complete trip round the
Empire so to speak, the first stopping place being Newfoundland.
Through a covered way the exhibition building of the oldest colony is
entered. Here a complete paper-
making plant will be one of the chief
features of interest. From Newfoundland the train proceeds to Canada, and the first view of this great
dominion is a vast stretch of forest
land, with groups of men busily engaged in felling and clearing timber.
Then the train is transferred with
its full complement of passengers to
an ocean ferry, and thence to Jamaica.
The next sight is a Malay village,
followed hy India with its historic
temples, tbence we traverse jungles,
palaces, bazaars and other scenes
typical of the east. Australia and
New Zealand follow next with a host
of interesting features i'lustrative of
Ihe marvellous development of Australasia.
The homeward journey is made by
way of the Cape, where realistic
representations are given of scenes
on the veldt, natives engaged In various pursuits and gold mines in full
operation.
"The "Round the Empire" trip by
the All-Red Route occupies about 20
minutes.
A huge model of the exhibition
grounds with its various colonial
government buildings and a working
model of the All-Red Route is now
on view to the public in a special
building in the Strand, which has
become one of the sights of London,
as many as 10,000 persons having
viewed it daily during the past fortnight.
Wheat Grown in Nine Weeks
A strikingly interesting feature of
the country life section of the Festival Empire will be a demonstration
farm, which should be of great interest to visitors from the overseas.
This will be a field of wheat which
is matured and reaped nine weeks
after sowing. This will be a revolution, for it will be the quickest crop
ever grown in the Mother Country.
It is the result of a new scientific,
process, which promises the farmer
independence of weather, sure harvests, more abundant ones, and reduced expenditure.

G.   T.
BRANCH   LINK
VANCOUVER—The Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway has finished a pre-
limnary stirey of that portion of its
proposed Fort George-Vancouver
branch between Harrison lake and
Fort George. Three survey parties
engaged at the work have been disbanded. Their various members have
been notified to hold themselves in
readiness for service early this
spring.
This is taken.as an indication that
the company will also undertake a
preliminary survey of a line from
Pemberton Meadows via Green Lake
to Newport at the head of Howe
Sound and thence down the coast to
North Vancouver. No surveys between Harrison Lake and this city
have yet been made.
The maximum gradient secured
for the entire distance between Harrison Lake and Fort George was a
trifle over four-tenths of one per
cent, with the exception of a short
section between Lillooet and Anderson Lakes, averaging about one
per cent. Some of the rock work on
the Fraser above Lillooet will be
heavy, almost rivalling the cost of
construction of the C. P. R. through
the Fraser River canyon below Lyt-
ton.
It is claimed that the alternative
route from Pemberton Meadows,
touched by the recent survey, via
Howe Sound, will effect a shortening
of Ihe distance by over sixty miles,
as compared with a line down the
Lillooet River, Harrison Lake and
down the Fraser River valley to
Vancouver. A grade would have to
li.- blasted along the rocky bluffs of
Harrison Lake for its entire length.
The same problem would have to
be faced In constructing a line from
Howe Sound to Nortli Vancouver.
As the question of cost and saving
of distance favors the Howe Sound
route, it is regarded as likely that
details of its feasibility will be secured before any final decision is
reached.
Meantime the reports of the recent surveys have been transmitted
to President Hays and Chief Engineer Kelliher at Montreal. They are
expected to give orders shortly respecting the coming season's work
in the field.

SPORTS
MAY GO EAST
The New Westminster lacrosse
team, holders of the Mlnto Cup and
champions of the lacrosse world,
will be invited this year by the Nationals of Montreal, to take a trip
east to play a series of exhibtion
games in Eastern Canada. As the
coast boys have not had a trip of
this nature for some time it Is protv
able that the offer will be accepted.
The Salmon Bellies would bo a great
drawing card in the east and they
should be able to pull a pretty big
guarantee from the Nationals and
other eastern teams with whom they
will arrange matches. A trip of the
Royals to the east will probably decide once and for all whether it Is
the Pacific coast climate which prevents eastern teams from lifting the
Minto Cup or as local lacrosse fans
believe, the superior style of lacrosse played on the coast.
The matter has not yet been
brought to the attention of the local
club. In the event of arrangements
of this nature being made, however,
a space will be left in the B. C. L. A.
schedule to allow of the trip. It is
also possible that Tommy Glfford
may be persuaded to play just one
more season in order to help the
boys make a good showing in the
proposed trip to the east. The following despatch from Montreal
shows how the Nationals look at the
question:
"Mr. Gagnon, the new secretary
of the National Lacrosse Club, states
that the Nationals Intend to branch
out this coming season and make a
little more money. 'We lost money
last year,' he said, 'that is, we did
not actually lose it, but we might
have taken in a good deal more if
we had been able to provide accommodation for the thousands of people whom We wer obliged to turn
away. Therefore, we will build
some new stands this spring, and as
We intend to try and bring the New
Westminster team here for some exhibtion games, we will start In with
one good attraction anyhow.' "
EXPERT WING SHOOTING
"Gun-pointing is the secret of
wing-shooting," said Charles Askins,
in Outing.    He says:
"The old manner of shooting a
shot gun was close one eye and
squint low over the breech, theoretically never pulling the trigger until
the front bead was accurately
aligned upon the target. Many an
old veteran still speaks learnedly of
'drawing a bead' on the game.
"The 'one eye' method of sighting
a shot gun is not altogether obsolete
yet. Many a veteran sportsman has
shot long and successfully In this
way, and will not change; neither Is
there good reason why he should, for
it is hard to teach an old dog new
tricks, nor does he learn them quite
so well a she knew the old. Never
theless it Is true that few or no
experts ever close an eye in aiming
today, though some of them in effect
sight exactly the same as though
they did.
"One eye sighting is distinctly
slow, and is not adapted to killing
game that in the nature of its flight
is either Imperfectly outlined or rapidly gets beyond range.
"Gun-pointing was the recognized
manner of aiming of all our west-
ern 'bad men,' and gun fighters
whose gun play was entirely too rapid to be directed by any description
of gun sights.
"Shooting a pistol in the old western way consisted simply in extending the hand quickly in the direction
of the target and pulling on the instant. This one band gun pointing
is the most natural method and the
easiest to acquire because wo have
been at It a good many years before
we ever gripped a gun.
"Shooting a shot gun differs from
It only In that the piece is pointed
with both hands in place of one, and
while the method Is more difficult to
acquire it is steadier and more reliable, because with the butt of the
weapon at the shoulder and both
bands holding it, we have a firmer
control than if the piece were directed entirely with one hand."
ATHLETIC POLICEMAN
' New Westminster now boasts of
an athletic policeman, an ex-
la-crosse player and an all round
athlete, and woe betide the law>-
breaker who opposes his will. This
latest addition to the ranks of the
officers of the law in this city Is
Harry Robinson, who formerly
played lacrosse with the Montreal
Shamrocks. Six i'eet three inches
tall and built in proportion he looks
well able to sustain the reputation
of the force.
Robinson, In spite of his size, was
a pretty fast home player when with
the Shamrocks and was a member of
the team which came west to endeavor to play exhibtion games with
the New Westminster team a few
years ago. He has quit the game
now, but works up considerable enthusiasm in talking over old lacrosse
battles.
He has served on the Winnipeg
and Calgary police forces and is an
experienced man. Besides lacrosse
he knows quite a bit about the boxing and wrestling game. He Is not
in uniform yet because there was not
a uniform large enough to fit him
and an extra special size had to be
ordered for his own especial use.
LESSONS FOB WRESTLERS
Considering the fact that it Is the
end of February and no definite
move has been made as yet with relation to the match between Gotch
and Hackenschmidt;, the grappling
fans are speculating as to what the
ultimate outcome will be. Until
such time as a club makes a tempting offer it is doubtful if there will
be any move made toward the signing of articles.
Up to this time Hackenschmidt
has wrestled from the Maine Coast
to the Rocky Mountains and. from
the Great Lakes to the Gulf. He has
been on the go continuously, meet-
ing the largest and toughest men In
the country. He is unquestionably
in the best condition he has ever
been in during his career and should
be able to give the champion the
best argument he has ever been up
against.
One of the busiest of the more
prominent wrestlers is Zybszco. The
Pole has been staging most 'of the
affairs in the east. When it comes
to piling up a bank account, Zbyszco
is about the smoothest of them all.
He has made a good card of himself,
and has an insight into commercial
methods that keeps him annexing
velvet while the others are spending
a lot of their time in conversation.
During the season of 1909-10 it is
said that Zbyszco went back to Europe with $73,000 profit. This was
unquestionably the largest net shown
by any wrestler in the world.
The tour of Hackenschmidt, however .should net a great deal more
than this, because Hack pulls larger
gates and a heavier rate of remuneration than any of tha. others. The
very natural disposition on tho, part
of the Americans to knock the foreigners doesn't argue away the fact
hat these same foreign wrestlers are
gathering in enormous purses, and
have the sun shining on both sides
of the street every day during the
season.
Both Hackenschmidt and Zbyszco
are on the go continuously, and the
American wrestlers are open to an
object lesson—and it will not* take
them very long to wake up to the
fact, that less | talk and more hard
work may pile up a balance on the
right side of the ledger in the shortest space of time. ^
Hackeiisclimidt's Plan
When the present season has terminated it Is the plan of Jack Corley to take George Hackenschmidt
on a tour of the world—touching
not only every important point on
the civilized map, but also mixing
up with the heathens.
In India, China and Japan the
Russian Lion will probably tackle
the toughest propositions of all. He
is, however, well versed in the mat
lore of the world and is anxious to
meet with the best of men of all
nations for the satisfaction of seeing bow good he is himself. There
is no question that there are grap-
plers on this old sphere whose abilities are far beyond the ordinary, but
whose fame is so purely localized We
would not recognize their names If
wes aw I hem in print.
In Europe and in tlie United
States wrestling has become an Important profession ,and the stars are
pa'el on tiie basis of their names and
ability—just as though they were
twinkling in the theatrical skies.
But in tbe Orient wliere advertising
has not reached the high point of
perfection it has attained in the Oc
cident—the wrestlers go on at
smaller purses, and almost purely
for tlie local honors bestowed upon
them.
It Is going to be Hackenschmidt's
business to bun out the best men in
all these countries and when his tour
is completed there will be no question in bis mind as to the relative
merits of all the best men in the
world. There has never been a time
in the history of athletics when
wrestling was so universally popular
as it Is today—and it is doubtful if
the next three or four generations
will have so many finished men as
those who represent the different
nationalities and sections at this
time.

She called at Rio de Janeiro on January 26. The Crown of Galicia will
also have freight for Comox and
Powell River pulp works, and In addition will be the first deep sea vessel to go to Ocean Falls, for which
point she has pulp-making machinery. This is quite a new departure
in local shipping . The Crown of Galicia will be remembered as the first
vessel to complete discharging a
cargo of rails at Prince Rupert, and
she is one of the finest tramp steamers that has come to this coast.
Hi-Weekly Service
The Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Prince Rupert, which has been laid
up at Victoria during the winter will
return to the Prince Rupert run on
March' 4, in all probability, replacing
the Prince George. After a lay up

service will be resumed. Captain
Barney Johnson will continue as
skipper of the Prince Rupert and
Captain Robertson will remain with
the Prince George.
During her lay off the Prince Rupert has been fitted with a spacious
refrigerating plant for carrying
large quantities of fresh meat and
other perishable cargo, in anticipation of a great spring rush to the
north the schedule of the bi-weekly
service is now being arranged, and
will soon be Issued.

FRUIT MEN'S VIEWS
Those  Engaged   in Industry in Lower
Mainland are Opposed to Reciprocity Arrangement
Th,
Question  of Trade with  United
States Dealt with by Or-
cliardists
The Fraser Valley Record has
been ascertaining the views of prominent fruit growers of the Mission
district on the reciprocity agreement
as it concerns tlie fruit industry locally. The concensus of opinion is
that the Fielding-Knox bargain Is
unjust to the British Columbia fruit
grower. Among tlie views published
is the following from Mr. A. Brea-
ley:
"It sems to me tlie Dominion government should not go into this
agreement without thoroughly taking into consideration all sides of the
question, and look into bow it is
going to affect the different provinces as it does not seem for to
sacrifice one for the sake of the
other.
"Regarding fruit in British Columbia, I have been in the business
now for fourteen years and it appears to me that this province has
been left in the cold. It costs us
more to clear than it does in Washington, or Oregon. I have been in
both of these states and their clearing on an average is nothing to urs.
Another thing, In this province we
have no orchards twenty years old,
while in the above states mentioned
there are hundreds of acres of orchards, and tlie time has come with
them that they have to find other
markets besides their own. Only
three years ago they were selling
strawberries for three cents a pound.
Now this price would hardly cover
expenses for packing over here.
"Another point, and a very serious one for tlie -British Columbia
fruit growers is that every variety of
fruit that the growers on the other
side raise, come to our market a
week earlier than ours and they get
fancy prices, consequently by the
time that our fruit begins to show
on the market the Americans cut the
prices down and down until we are
hardly making a cent. They can afford to do this because it is the surplus they are selling and what with
big prices to begin with they can af-
1 ford to almost give it away. This
in tlie face of tlie present duty.
What will it lie without the duty at
all? Why the commission houses
will have a bonanza as the consumer
will not get the benefit. That is
where the public are making their
great mistake as it will be the mid
dlenien who will make tbe money
and not the consumer.
"If you have watched the market
of tlie northwest, you will know that
tlie .Americans hold the trump card.
They are the ones who run the market not the Canadian growers, and
does it seem common sense that because they have the duty of five
cents or fifty cents a case taken off
that they are going to. give the
northwest farmer the difference? I
think he will find that they will put
this into their own pocket and he
will not be one cent ahead of the
game.
"When there is a slump of any
kind the American grower can better afford to stand the slump on account of his having got big prices in
the first, place. Why more llian
probably the Canadian grower has
only just started to ship and consequently loses his whole crop. Now
you can see what his means If you
take the little protection we have
got oft.
"Another point is the American
packing houses can send any old
stuff Into Canada, not even being
forced to grade the fruit, We are
told the government has Inspectors
in the northwest, Well ,all I can
say" Is they might just as well nol
be ihere for all the good they are.
"if w(. were sun. 6f protection the
i anient mlghl nol be sn bad as it
looks al Clrsl sight, bul 1 am afraid
If the duly is taken off it will he
worsi   than ever!"

A  MOW ANIMAL
Water  Elephant   Discovered  In  Central Africa—Plunges into Lake
When Travellers Approach
Rumors of the discovery of a hitherto unknown animal in central
Africa by Dr. Trovessant prompted
the eminent naturalist, Lydekker, to
write to the doctor, who sent a copy
of the Paris Scientific Journal of
Nature, wherein it was said:
"We have obtained additional information of a mysterious animal inhabiting tlie lakes of Central Africa.
The natives call it the water elephant, on account of its aquaitlc
habits. Lepetit, one of the explorers
sent by the Paris Museum of Natural
History, says that at Tombaniayl, on
the northern shore of Lake Leopold,
in the district of Lukeni, Belgian
Congo, ne saw five of these animals
which halted at a distance of 500
yards, enabling him to observe them
for some seconds before they plunged
into the lake.
"Their trunks and ears are remarkably short; the neck is longer
than an elephant's, and the height
does not exceed about six feet; the
footprints in the mud are different
from an elephant's. The animals,
on catching sight of travellers,
plunge into the water, leaving only
the summits of their heads and
trunks exposed."
These details, coming from a
trained observer are sufficiently precise to leave no doubt of the existence of the animal.

THE GRAVES ABOVE ASSUAN
Lessons of the Past  Taught by the
Obliterating  of  the  Burial
Places on the Nile
The report of the penitentiaries
branch of the Departmonl of Justice,
Canada, gives the average daily pop-
ulation of Canadian penitentiaries,
during the pasl fiscal year, us I,s24,
compared with 1,625 in the preceding year. In view of the Influx of
foreign Immigrants, the number of
foreign-born convicts 1ms Increased
from fourteen per cenl in 1900, to
twenty ppr cent in  1910.
The discovery of forgotten races,
the decipherment of ancient languages from scratches and obscure
marks, the bringing to life again of
civilizations whose history seemed
obliterated, and other triumphs of
archaeology, make us close our eyes
to the often unpleasant means by
which the knowledge is acquired,
says the New York Sun. We may
dislike to think that our twentieth
century life may be judged a few
thousand years hence from the evidence scraped out of our rubbish
heaps; tlie repugnance at the rifling
of the graveyard is stronger, even if
it is called a necropolis and its inmates have slept in it for many centuries. Even mode unpleasant In its
demands is the science of anthropology, and only the importance of
investigation on a large scale that
has been made on the Nubian Border
of Egypt.
When it was decided to raise the
AssuBn dam thirty-three feet it was
clear that the Nile banks for miles
back would be put under water. The
effort to prevent the Improvement
so as to save the temples at Philae
will be remembered. The waters
would also flood the cemeteries in a
region of peculiar historic importance, the borderlang between the
Egyptians and tlie black races from
the earliest times, and tlie Egyptian
government appointed a commission
of archaeologists and anatomists to
examine the (burial grounds before
tlie dam was closed. The commission did its work thoroughly; il
found cemteries of many dates, from
3000 B. C. to 500 A. D., and abundant, material. The doctors especially
obtained clear evidence about the
matters they were interested in, for
they found 2000 bodies In one cemetery alone, many so perfect that,
as the Lancet puts it, "their examination took more than a mere osteo-
logical inventory." Their report
will throw a flood of light on the
history of human pathology, wholly
apart, from the' anthropological information it contains.
Siimc Interesting genralizatlona
the Lancet reports. They have settled ihe. fact that the earliest Egyp-
lians were not embalmed bul wen'
mummified by the hot sand in
which they were burled; thai the
disordered condition of the bones Is
tluc to the work of plunderers en-
lircly, who disturbed the graves in
the search for treasure, and not to
any burial customs nor as the result
of cannibal habits; that the preparation of the mummy was not attended by an elaborate ritual, but was
entrusted to embalmers who were
often extremely careless. The report, according to the Lancet, puts
an end to many theories which the
Egyptologists have constructed from
single cases or accidents to the
mummies, More general interest
will he taken, we imagine, In the
tracing back to the days of the Pharaohs the' diseases with which ninn-
liiiul is now afflicted. The "Archaeological Survey of Nubia" is likely
to at rail genera] attention.
Mr. W. E. Duperow, general agent
of the Grand Trunk Pacific and his
staff held "open house" at the new
ticket offices opened by the company
on wharf street, says the Victoria
Colonist. With Mr. Duperow, acting
as hosts to many Victorians, Mr.
Harold F. Brown, freight and dock
agent, Messrs. Chas. Earle and R.
Backus aided in dispensing hospitality. The new city passenger and
ticket office on Wharf street has
just been completed, and the office
staff lias just moved in. The building is of attractive appearance, built
of brick and stone, lint it is not until
the inside is seen that the care and
thought taken to give comfort to the
patrons becomes apparent.
Approaching the office one Is
struck with the artistic trade marks
as displayed in the upper windows,
of the different companies interested, viz.: the Grand Trunk Railway
System, the Grand Trunk Pacific
Coast Steamship Co., and the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway. These are
done mostly In black and gold, except the house flag of the steamship
line which is in red, white and
green, with a maple leaf for the centre. The waiting rooms are spacious
and particularly well lighted, giving
an uninterrupted view of the inner
harbor, the Causeway arid Government street. Those rooms and In fact
the'whole Interior of the building
are panelled with selected British
Columbia fir of beautiful grain that
shows up well. The waiting rooms
are provided with wash and toilet
rooms for the convenience of the
traveling public. The walls of the
waiting rooms as we'll as of the general ticket office display many pictures of important points on the
lines interested. These were taken
by the companies' own artist and are
true representations of the places indicated. They were framed by Som-
mers, in early English oak.
A passage way of twelve feet extends from the waiting rooms to the
rear door, which enables passengers
to go direct from the office to the
steamers.
The general ticket office is roomy
and is provided with a specially constructed counter, by Weiler Brothers, which has all the latest devices
necessary for the handling with despatch of passenger business. This
office and the general waiting room
is heavily beamed, thus adding a
tone and general appearance of stability to tlie appearance. Adjoining
the general office is the private office of the city passenger and ticket
agent, which office is specially fitted
up and where parties contemplating
extended trips or unusual outings
may consult in comfort and receive
information as to the most advantageous ways and means of making
such  trips.
The lighting arangements require
special mention as there is nothing
like it in the ctly of Victoria. The
lights are concealed in large fixtures of bronze finish and these bear
the trade marks of the Grand Trunk
System. The light is thrown on the
ceiling and diffuses, making it soft
and easy on the eye, in fact the nearest, approach to daylight possible.
These were installed by the Hinton
Electric Co. Tlie building is heated
witli hot water and ample radiators
have been installed to ensure comfort.
The settees will be in a position in
a few days and will be massive and
of a design to harmonize with the
other fittings.

CORONATION  RIGHTS
Rivalry  Among  Many Claimants  for
Offices in Connection With
Event.
Ancient   Prerogatives   Give   Trouble
to Decide Who Shall Appear
in Them
If there is one dominating note
about the court of claims, which was
recently in session here, It Is heredity and succession.
Coronation rights of service arose
at a time when tbe performance of
service to the crown was more in
the naturen of a duty, often expensive and undesired, than the coveted
privilege It is now esteemed.
For this reason the crown Imposed tbe bulk of these services as
conditions attached to the gift of
land. This is not exactly hereditary
succession, but what is known in law
as grand serjeanty, which Coke defines as "where a man holds his
lands or tenements of our sovereign lord the king by such services
as he ought to do in his proper person to the king."
Procedure of the Court
The cases dealt with on the occasion of the last sitting of the court
prior to the coronation of King Edward VII are (a) claims as of right
on which judgment was delivered
by the court; (b) cases argued before the court, but on which no order was made; (c) cases in which no
claim of right was made; td) cases
not argued, and on which no order
was made, and (e) cases excluded
from the consideration of the court
by the terms of the proclamation.
These last include some of those
which are of the greatest historical
interest, but were excluded because
by proclamation the coronation banquet was dispensed with, and the
rights of service claimed were in relation to the banquet in Westminster
Abbey.
King's Champion
Probably the most interesting of
all the claims put forward is that of
Mr. Dymoke, the honorable the
king's champion, by reason of his
tenure of the Manor of Scrivelsby.
This, of course, is a banquet claim,
the service being performed in Westminster Hall, when the champion
rides in, throws down his glove and
challenges anyone to deny the right
of the king to the throne. Another
claim relating to the banquet was
that of chief butler, for which office
there were three claimants, viz.: the
Duke of Norfolk, who claimed it as
an appendage of his earldom of
Arundel; Lord Mowbray and Stour-
ton, who claimed it as an hereditary
office to which he was the heir, and
Mr. F. O. Taylor, who claimed it by
reason of his tenure of the Manor
of Kenninghall.
The manors of Scoulton, Eston,
Shipton Moyne and Eddington are
held by grand sei.Ieanty, the service
being that of the office of la-dertr.
Lord Estcourt, as owner of the Manor of Shipton Moyne, claimed it in
1901, while Miss Wilshire, as lady
of the Manor of Great and Little
Wymondley, claimed "to serve the
king on the day of his coronation
with the first cup, being a silver cup
gilt, of which the king shall drink
at his dinner and to have the same
cup for her fee."
The Manor of Worksop is held by
the service of finding a glove for the
king's right hand, and the claim of
the Duke of Newcastle, as owner of
the manor, was allowed on the last
occasion. The glove has to be ein-
brodered with the arms of the Verdun family, to whom the office was
first granted.
A .Mess of Dtllegrout"
The Manor of Addtngton is held
by the service of presenting "a mess
of dlllegrout," The Archbishop of
Canterbury, as owner of the manor,
had his claim allowed In 1821 at
the coronation of George IV, but
since then no claim has been made,
as no banquet has been held.
The Manor of Ileydon was held by
the service of providing and holding
for the king a towel when he washes
before the banquet, and the claims
of the Soames as lords of the manor
were allowed through a long series
of generations, the last occasion being 1821.
The barons of the Cinque Ports
carry the canopy over the king; the
lord mayor of London has a right
to attend the ceremony, and the
Walker trustees, as owning the of-
' flee of usher of the White Rod of
Scotland, appoint a deputy to attend
and officiate.
The claims of the Earl of Lauderdale, Mr. Scrymgeour, gave rise to
a most interesting legal fight for the
office of hereditary standard bearer
of Scotland, the office being adjudged   to     Mr.   Wedderburn.     The
fight has since been continued in
other courts, the final result being
in favor of Mr. Wedderburn. The
claims to carry the great spurs,
which were submitted by Lord Grey
de Rutbyn, the Earl of Loudoun and
Lord Hastings were not decided.
The claim of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster, "to Instruct the
king and queen in the rites and ceremonies of the coronation," was allowed. Some of the claims, both
those allowed and disallowed, are
quaint in the extreme.

OPPOSED BY LIBERALS
Toronto Citizens of   Reform   Stamp
Sign Petition Against Reciprocity
Eighteen of Toronto's most prominent Liberals, all substantial and
influential financiers, merchants or
manufacturers, have signed a statement setting forth their opposition
to the proposed reciprocity agreement, says a despatch. It says in
part:
"It is essential to the continued
national untiy and development of
Canada that no trade relations
should be agreed to on any basis
which would check the growth and
development of trade between the
various parts of Canada, or between
Canada and the various parts of the
Empire, and because the proposed
reciprocity agreement would seriously check the growth of this trade.
"The present benefit to any section of Canada, or to any interests
or individuals therein which might
accrue from the proposed agreement
would be more than offset by the
loss and injury which would accrue
to other sections, interests and individuals, and because the result to
Canada as a whole would be greatly
injurious.
"The freedom of action possessed
by Canada with reference to her tariff and channels of trade would be
greatly curtailed and she would be
hampered In developing her resources in her own way and by her
own people.
"After some years of reciprocity
tlie channels of Canada's trade
would have become so changed that
a termination of the agreement and
a return to a protective tariff
against Canada would disturb trade
to an unparalleled extent, a risk
which should not be voluntarily undertaken  by  Canada.
"To avoid such a disruption, Canada would be forced to extend the
scope of the agreement so as to In
clude manufactures and other
things,
"The agreement as proposed,
would weaken the ties which bind
Canada to the empire and because
the unrestricted reciprocity which
would naturally follow would still
further weaken these ties and make
it more difficult to avert potilical
union with the United States.
"To avoid such a disruption, Canada would be forced to extend the
scope of the agreement so as to Include manufactures and other
things.
"The agreement as proposed,
would weaken the ties which bind
Canada to the empire and because
the unrestricted reciprocity which
naturally follow would still further
weaken these ties and make it more
difficult to avert political union with
the United States.
"The disruption of Canada's trade
caused by the termination of the
reciprocity treat yof 1854 and the
subsequent establishment of the
United States protective tariff gave
rise to a decided leaning towards
annexation with the United States,
and this at a time when Canada was
mainly peopled by native-born Canadians and other British subjects to
whom the prospect of annexation
was most unwelcome, and because
Canada will soon have millions of
newcomers from foreign countries,
and if Canada should then have to
choose between disruption of her
channels of trade with the United
States or political union with them
the preservation of Canadian autonomy and Canadian nationality would
be enormously more difficult."
Lady—(to her cook's intended) —
1 have been very much annoyed by
your young woman recently. She
has been serving us burnt meat.
Intended—Yes; I have been annoyed by it, too. Now, shall I turn
her off, or will you?
"Will you come around tomorrow
and play bridge?"
"I was going to get married tomorrow, but perhaps I can postpone
it."
 o——	
The Candidate (having quoted the
words of an eminent statesman in
support of an argument)—And,
mind you, these are not my words.
This Is not merely my opinion. These
are words of a man who knows what
he's talking about.

PARTING OF WAYS
Sir James Whitney Premier of Ontario
on Reciprocity Agreement.
Some of (lie Objections Which Eastern Statesman Urges
Against It
Sir James Whitney, Premier of
Ontario, cables the the London Express that President Taft struck the
keynote of the reciprocity matter
when he said that "Canada is at the
parting of the ways." The idea hidden under this expression indicates
the view held for many years by a
Intelligent Americans, namely, that
when the proper time conies, Canada
will drop away from the British Em
pire, like a ripe fruit from a tree.
"Mr. Clark said nothing more
than has been said day after day by
the best men in the United States,
continues Sir James. "I cannot
quote tnem in this short statement
but the language of Senators Bever
ldge and Hill and others puts the
desire and intention and belief of
the American people beyond doubt.
Canada's manhood began, after, and
perhaps on account of, the abrogation of tlie old reciprocity treaty.
We have risen to manhood, our in-
terprovincial relations are complete
and satisfactory, and there is the intense desire and indeed the determination on the part of our people
to elaborate and strengthen the ties
which bind us to the empire with a
view to continuity of British rule
and British institution in North
America. Reciprocity will mean the
undoing of the work of years. Our
transportation facilities which cost
hundreds of millions of dollars will
be, perhaps, fatally injured; the aspirations of Canadians for imperial
and national unity throttled; and
as the American press declares this
latter question will thus be headed
off and settled forever. Our inter-
provincial trade will be ruined and
the progress and growth of our
great cities stopped. In fact the
orange will be sucked dry and the
skin left with us.
"As the Washington Star thoughtfully observes: The isolation and
humiliation of coloniel position will
not be forever endurable. Meanwhile there is full reciprocity in exchange of citizens and a steady
Americanization. However, Canadians will not submit tamely to being wiped off the mat."
THE   SCHOOL   SITUATION
(Continued From Page One.)
with the understanding when the
school was opened.
There will probably be accommodation provided for the pupils who
take their lunches, during the time
they are eating them, in the rooms
not at. present occupied as classrooms. These will be fitted up for
the pnrpose with the desks now on
hand.
The condition of the old school
was brought up and the need that
might arise to use it at some time.
It had been reported to the Board
that the place was not, locked, but
was open day and night. The chimney was not left in a safe condition,
It was also reported.
It was decided to communicate
with those in charge of the Boy
Scouts and the commanding officer
of Earl Grey's Rifles and request
that these organizations take steps
to have the building locked, except
when In use, have the chimney attended to and the building kept In
good  shape  In  accordance with  the
understanding   upon   which     it   was
permitted to be used.
The question of insurance on the
new building came up when a request
from the government that the Trustees should bear one-half of the insurance carried before the building
was occupied was dealt with. It
was decided to inform the department that the Board did not feel
that it was in any way responsible
until  the building was occupied.
A request from A. J. Prudhomme
that the Board bear a share of the
insurance since the building was occupied was referred to the chairman
and Secretary Saule to take up with
Mr. Prudhomme and the government
agent looking to reaching a settle
ment.
The subject of substitute teachers
was introduced when the trustees
expressed the wish that whenever a
teacher was unable to attend school
the principal should take steps to
secure as quickly as possible a substitute, the policy of the Board being against closing the rooms.
 o	
ITS FIRST LUNCHEON
(Continued From Page One.)
from that drifted into the    customs
of the Indians.
In this latter connection tlie totem
poles were referred to. He gave
facts connected with these showing
that there was a mythology surrounding the characters which were
pictured on the poles as well as a
historical side to them. The first
discovery of gold on the Queen
Charlottes was referred to and
in concluding the Archdeacon
made a strong plea for the Indians.
He suggested, that the government
might with advantage treat them as
men. They might have the reserves
subdivided and definite tracts given
each one so as to encourage them in
the cultivation of the lands.
Aid. Vernor Smith moved a vote
of thanks which was seconded by
G. R. Naden.
 o	
HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY
 \
Mr.  O. 0.  Cliipiiinii,   for   20   Years
Commissioner of the Company,
Will Retire This .Year
Mr. C. C. Chipman, who for 20
years filled the post of commissioner
of the Hudson's Bay Company, will
before the close of the current year
retire from the active control oi the
affairs of the company in the Canadian west.
Mr. Chipman will leave Winnipeg
for England. Mr. Chipman is a
Nova Scotlan, having been born in
Amherst, N. S., on May 24, 1856.
PEARS IMPERIAL FEDERATION
Mr. James J. Hill, in an address
delivered at St. Paul, Minn., admitted {hat he bad boosted reciprocity
with Canada, but denied that he had
put in any money to push the agreement through.
"Now is the only time to get the
measure through," said Mr. Hill, "as
Imperial Federation will forestall
any future move. If action is taken
now," he continued, "it will mean a
terrific expansion of the entire western portion of America."
MOKE STEEL ARRIVES
Another  Shipload  of  Rails  Reaches
Port from Sydney, C. H.
The steamer Skogstadt, Captain
Rhyning, has reached port from Sydney, C. B., with 4,700 tons of rails
and acessorles for the G. T. P. ,
Tbe steamer had a quick run,
leaving Sydney early In December.
OPENING THE BAYS
Question Affecting Waterfront is Now
Before Authorities at    "
Ottawa.
Eastern  Solicitor's  Opinion  Is  That
It Will (io to the Railway
Commissioners
The council last evening had read
before them communications relative
to the opening of the bays along the
waterfront. Hon. W. Templeman
wrote that he had, in response to
the request of the council, referred
the matter to Pringle & Guthrie to
take up with the government.
The latter law firm reported upon
the standing of the case. It had
come up before the Minister of
Railways, who reserved his judgment. D'Arcy Tate, the letter- said,
had on behalf of the G. T. P. claimed
that the company was building on its
own lands and therefore the matter
did not come within the jurisdiction
of the railway commission. The
company had only to secure the
sanction of the Minister of Railways
and the Minister of Marine and Fisheries.
Messrs. Pringle & Guthrie expressed the opinion that the Minister
would force the company before the
Prince Rupert Commission, when
the city could present its claims.
POLICY REACHED BY
COUNCIL ON WAGES
(Continued from Page One)
pie of law it would have a damaging
effect in that it might not only reduce the possible profits of the contractors but delay the work to an
unreasonable extent and thus entitle
contractors to an action of damages
against the city. I am of the opinion that it would be unwise, at least
until the completion of the present
contracts, to so interfere with the
wage scale as to incur the possibility
of the city becoming involved in a
series of actions for damages.
"Your obedient servant,
C. V. BENNETT."
Accompanying   the   opinion     was
the report of the committee of the
council which was adopted    without
any division.    It was as follows:
"To the Mayor and City Council:
"Gentlemen:—The committee of
the whole recommend that on account of the possible legal difficul-
culties arising, the committee do not
deem it advisable to pass any resolution through the council dealing
with the wage scale as presented by
the Industrial association. Your
committee, however, are strongly
impressed with the unusual conditions obtaining here, and that many
of the city employees are not receiving sufficient pay for work to enable
them to procure the real necessities
of life and recommend that immediate steps be taken by members of
the various committees to better the
condition of these men.
"G. W. KERR,
"Chairman."
There was a large attendance of
workers at the city hall last evening
in view of the expected action by the
council. Long before the doors of
the hail were opened, the throng
gathered about the place and some
of the members of the council had
to find a way of entering by the
back door or even by the windows of
the -hall. There was no demonstration on the part of the men and no
representations made by them. After
the decision was announced the
workers left the city hall.
