John  Jardine  Does  Not  Criticise the
Government's Railway
Policy.
i.Mici-iii  Member Shows He    Is    in
Hearty Accord with the Plan
of   the   Ministry
(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, Jan. 20,—John Jar-
dine, the Liberal candidate for Esquimau, through which riding the
Canadian Northern railway will run,
does not share the views of the opponents of the McBride government
as to the undertaking.
Speaking In the debate on the address of His Honor the Lieutenant
Governor on Thursday, he said: "I
have an assurance that Vancouver
Island portion of the Canadian
Northern Pacific railway will be under construction within thirty days
and hope that members of the government, and the liouse will be invited by i lie company to go out and
see the premier turn the first :;od.
ALTERING  GRADE
( iiiincil  Passes  upon  ihe Change on
Second   Avenue  Street
Levels
At t;ie Wednesday evening meeting of the city council it was decided on tiie report of the streets
committee thai the change ol' grade
on Second avenue should be allowed.
In explanation of this ir was pointed
ml that ii would nol Interfere with
he existing contracts, as provision
was made for such changes by the
- ngineor In all contracts let,    As a
 if  fact  (hero  would  ba  less
: ock i xcavatod under the changi
on Third ai ent e, so that the contract would bo reduced In its total
amount.
The change would give a grade of
6.57 per cent on the steepest part
■ !' Third avenue. On Second avenue the grade would be 5 per cent.
The cost of the change would
amount to $4,000 in the street work
nnd about $7,600 on the buildings
required to be raised or lowered.
The whole added cost would represent $0.44 a foot.
LUMBER  CONTRACT
Westliolme Company    Will    Supply
the City With the Two Million l-'t-ei Required
V
The Westliolme Lumber company
is to be awarded the contract for the
two million feet of lumber for which
lenders were called some time ago.
\nis action has been precipitated by
.i tetter read at the last meeting of
the council from that company, explaining that if the contract were
tun at. once entered' into so that an
order could be placed, a higher figure would have to he demanded.
The tender of the Westliolme company Was the lowest when received
some weeks ago, but a delay followed letting it.
Aid. Hilditch explained the situation. Me said when the tenders were
culled in December for the lumber it
was felt by the committee that the
lowest tender was rather too high.
It was felt that it would be as well
to leave over the matter of a contract until the spring and secure
only what was necessary Tor the time
being. In view of the fact that they
required lumber at once and the
Westholme company was not pre
pared to supply smaller amounts, he
moved that the contract be entered
into with tho Westliolme Lumber
company.
The motion carried.
A PRETTY WEDDING
Popular Residents of the City Joined
in Matrimony Last
Evening.
Dr. McNeill and Miss Hay Wore Married nt (lie Home of Mr.
W. E, Williams
The home of Mr. and Mrs. W. E.
Williams, Borden street, -was the
scene of a very pretty wedding yesterday afternoon when Miss Eva
Ernstine Ray was wedded to Dr.
Neil M. McNeill.
The bride, who was given away
by Dr. W. E. Williams, was attired
in a gown of white embroidered satin and wore the conventional veil
with a coronet of ..white flowers and
carried a beautiful shower bouquet.
Her only attendant was little Miss
Doris Pattullo, who acted as flower
girl.
The groom was attended by Cyril
H. Orme. Mrs. W. E. Williams,
Mus. Bac, played the bridal march
from "Lohengrin" during the entrance of the bride.
The groom's gift to the bride was
a valuable lot and a piano-; to the
flower girl a pearl brooch, and to
the best man a pin and cuff links.
The presents to the happy couple
were numerous and valuable, vary-
ing from a splendid sewing machine
10 a silver tea service.
About twenty-five guests sat down
to dinner and merry was the feast
and long. TUe Rev. F. W. Kerr officiated and acted as toast master.
After dinner and much speech making, the happy couple left amid torrents of rice and confetti on the S.S.
Prime George en route to Southern
California, the bride travelling in a
charming suit of pale blue serge
with gloves and hat to match.
Many friends gathered at the wharf

TREMENDOUS RUSH
Reports Tell of Great Numbers That Await tiie Opening
of Spring to Invade the Mining Districts
Reached From This City.
The coming summer will, i; is
,-.iie to say, see a tremendous nisi:
Into ihe Interior in' the province by
way of Priine Rupert. C. Van Ars-
dol, the engine! r ;u chaige of the
western portion of the tl. T. P., recently returned from the south. He
says that there can he no mistaking
the move that is to follow with the
opening. The different mining camps
in the west are all looking to the
northern interior of British Columbia and with the first move in the
spring these will invade the district.
He prophesies that there will be an
influx into the Hazelton district this
coming season quite as pronounced
as was the rush to Portland canal
iast season.
The opinion of Mr. Van Arsdol is
borne out by the many enquiries that
are from time to time made from
these mining centres in the western
s-tates with respect to the mans of
communication with the interior.
The G. T. P. is preparing for a
heavy trade up the river this year.
For the early spring tush a suitable
■ win be provider lor the first
ion miles after which the river
■ •' 'in ts will have to he resorted to.
There will, however, he a steamer
from the end of the rails to Hazelton or Eluson every day at least, so
; ■ i- ■"> luck of accommodation
a  ould he found.
Relative to the G. T. P. line out of
Prinre Rupert it is a splendid advertisement, for tho character of the
track luiii that the engines employed
are capable of hauling heavier loads
along tic first 100 miles of track
east of Piinre Rupert than the same
class of locomotive would haul on
C,  piwurie sections.
The loud out of Prince Rupert is
practicallv level, a condition that is
seldom found on the prairies in
spite of the general even extent of
the plains.
In addition to the mining movement, there are constant enquiries
about the a-.-.i ii-ultural possibilities of
the interior showing that ihe land
is to be developed in conjunction
with  Ihe  npen'ng up  of  the mines.
CRUSHED BY ROCK
Austrian Driller Meets Death on First
Avenue Near Beach
Place.
Hug
Mass Rolls Upon Him, Killing
Him   Almost   Instantly
Yesterday another fatal accident
occurred in connection with the rock
work in the city. This time death
came to an employee under one of
lie- city contracts.
While holding Ihe drilling steel,
preparatory to putting in u blast by
which a large mass of rock was to
be loosened on First avenue near
Beach place, Rada Mastilovich, an
Austrian, was crushed to death. The
rock which had been loosened by a
previous blast, began to move and
before the unfortunate victim of the
accident could get clear he was carried down with It, the rock crushing the lower part of his body to a
pulp.
It was only after the greatest difficulty that the rock was removed
so that the body could  be removed.
Death   was  almost  instantaneous.
A post mortem examination was
held by Dr. Eggert and an inquest
ordered by Coroner McMullin. After
the jury viewed the remains last
evening, the inquest was adjourned
until next Friday.
The body has been prepared for
burial by Hayner Bros., undertakers. The funeral which took place
today at noon, was very largely attended by comrades of the deceased.

His Worship said that If tlie arrangements were made fur the issuing of the debentures any bunk

Aid. PiRtullo felt thai if this were
true it was all right. He felt, however, il would be belter lo go into
it with the bank so that there would
be no danger of being held up by
the bank and a delay of three
months perhaps while the debentures were being placed on the market.

NEW FIRE HALL
Steps   Taken   to   Secure   Permanent

■■-ui water conimiittee of the council
M wiis decided to take steps to secure a new fire hall site on Fulton
street near the corner of Fifth avenue. This would permit of an easy
run in different directions and a per-
iiiiitient. building could he put up.
Aid. Smith, the chairman of the
committee, in support of the move
pointed out that the site was a desirable one and before the heavy
equipment-arrived they would need
a more substantial building.
Aid. Newton wanted to know if
it was the policy to have the auto
fire equipment come on.
Aid. Smith said that a combined
auto chemical and hose wagon had
■ i ird »red. li was ;i special order and he did not think iliut ii
■hi in- wise to cancel that order
now.
A  recommendation to provide for
;:. of horsi    and an engine to be
hauled  by  horses  was  put  forward
and will be dealt with when the site
is  secured.

The city council on Wednesday
evening got down to rather full discussion of the question of a city hall
site. Last year's council decided in
favor of the .Market place as the
most suitable place for a city hall

lo grant it, setting forth that the
council was liable to have to vacate
the premises now occupied at any

Aid. Hilditch favored Aid. .Newton's motion, alt hough from a somewhat different standpoint, The present city solicitors had expressed
their intention of refusing to take
a, lower salary. If ii were found
necessary later on to secure a permanent solicitor one could be secured for $200 a month, he felt even
if they had to bring in an outside
solicitor.

RUPERT CITY SOLI)
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
The Steamship Rupert City has
been sold by tbe owners, Watts,
Watts & Co., of London and Cardiff,
to a Vancouver syndicate. In shipping circles it is stated that those
who have acquired an interest in the
vessel are Capt. Duncan .Mackenzie,
Doniiniek Burns, J. E. Webb and H.
Schart.schmidt. ?
The sale adds another chapter to
the history of the vessel. Built in
1886 at Barrow for Watts, Watts &
Co., the steamship was christened
Powhnttan. She is 310 feet long, 39
feet 2 inches beam and 1,640 tons.
She was engaged in recent years in
transporting Chinese between Hongkong and .Mexico, and when the edict
against the immigration of Chinese
was issued by the Mexican government, the Powhnttan was laid up at
Hongkong,
Then .Mackenzie Brothers, of Vancouver, obtained the vessel, with
option of charter, and in 1908 she
brought to that port, with Captain
Turner, her original commander, in
charge.
He proceeded to the United Kingdom to take command of another
Watts vessel, and tlie Powhattan
was remodelled into a passenger
steamship. Captain Duncan Mackenzie took command, and the vessel
operated to Prince Rupert for nearly two years. She sailed from Vancouver on her maiden trip to Prince
Rupert on Tuesday, January 3, 1904.
After a service to northern ports
the Rupert City, as she had been re-
christcned, was laid up. She was
then taken by the Grand Trunk Pacific, which assumed the agreement
of Mackenzie Brothers. When this
expired in December, 1910, the vessel anchored In the stream. The
Grand Trunk Pacific made an offer
for her last year, but the price did
not coincide with the ideas of the
British owners.

EXEMPTION   OF   IMPROVEMENTS
The principle of exempting Im-
povement from taxation is extending in favor ;n British Columbia
Nanalmo Cltj. for a long time stood
unique in this respect in the ,' ''v
line. Of la;,- vears, however, there
iias been a decided move in the di
rectlon of exemption along this line
Eien an ulna cdnservative city like
V'ltoria expresses approval of the
principle in a referendum vote taken
at the election just held. By a
vote of 2,392 for and -17G against,
that city gave expression io its atti
tude on Hie question, "Shall im
provements be exempt from taxa
Hon?" This is a rather astonishing
vote in a city where large tracts
have been allowed to be vacant
awaiting an advance in value.

CITY   HALL SITE
The city council should at an early-
date decide the location of its city
hall. At the present time the various
civic staffs are working under great
disadvantages and at any time the
council may find it necessary to secure other quarters.
The .Market place is a model site
tho only obpjection that has been
raised to it being that it is a little
away from what is the business section at the present time.
Last year's council considered it
the best available location and asked
Premier McBride for a grant of the
land required which would allow of
the erection of an imposing structure
which could never be shut in. Second avenue would terminate right in
front of it and there is provision
made for two open spaces that could
be used as parks between the hall
and .McBride street.
An early decision should be arrived at so tha taction can be taken
to secure the site if this is the choice.
If the government at Victoria found
that the city required a place to
erect a city hall on at once, greater
pressure could be brought to bear
upon them to make a grant at once.
SPARE  THAT  TREE
Ex-Aid.     Harrow      Wishes     Spruce
Standing on Third Avenue
Left Unmolested
Ex-Aid. Barrow wishes to see the
spruce tree which stands on lower
Third avenue not far from the electric light station left, standing as
an example of the limber that was
found here. The tree has been condemned by those In charge of the
light station, owing to Ihe danger
from its falling.
Mr. Barrow in a letter to the
council Wednesday evening, said he
spared the tree against orders originally, so that, it might stand as a
sammple of the timber growing here
He thought something might be
done to guy the tree rather than destroy it.
The communication was referred
to the streets committee for report.

An idea of the extent to which
the trade of Japanes eshtppign companies has grown is given in the address made by R. Kondo, president
of the Nippon Yusen Knisha, at the
banquet held on Dei-ember 15 at To-
kio, to commeminorate the 25th anniversary of the company. He said
Unit the x. Y. K., which started its
transpacific line in 1900 ,has reached the sixtli place in order of Ihe
world's shipping companies, It has
now a fleet which aggregates 280,-
000 tons and includes six vessels of
8,600 tons each. From Ihe point of
• lew of a commercial currying agent
ii is noteworthy ihut whereas the
foreign trade of Japan in 1895, the
year before the company opened its
firsl regular ocean-going lines, aggregated $129,000,000, and the
share carried by Japanese steamers
amounted to only 3 per cent, the foreign trade in 1909 totalled some
$403,000,000, no less than 4i" per
cent of w.iieh was carried by Japanese steamers.
"I learn," said Mr. Kondo, "that
the freight earned by Japanese
steamers is not less than about $15,-
000,000 yearly. That earned by the
Xippon Yusen Kaisha alone is about
$1,500,000, and when expenses and
disbursements aire deducted, lit is
calculated that sftme $3,000,000 or
$3,500,000 annually remain to the
company and may be regarded as so
much specie imported into the country."
REACHING FOR TRADE
Another large Japanese steamship
company to compete for the carrying
trade-of the Pacific and to run to the
Atlantic coast and Europe with the
intention of using the Panama canal
on its completion in 1915, is being
organized in Japan. Twenty vessels
of about 6,000 tons register are to be
built, and government assistance
will be sought to carry out the project. The head of the proposed enterprise is Mr. Xishkawa Shozo, formerly director of the Japanese Shipowners' union, who has just returned
to Japan after completing investigations in America and Europe in
regard to the project. The new concern ish to be capitalized at 7,500,-
000, an dit is proposed to obtain a
guarantee of a' dividend of 5 per
cent per annum from the Japanese
government.
In his announced plans Mr. Nishi-
kawa Shozo says it is proposed to
build steamers of a modern type to
extend services to the western coast
of Amecira and other countries also
on the completion of the Panama canal, which he anticipates will nave
a great bearing on the carrying trade
in the Pacific. According to his
plan ten steamers of 6,000 tons register each are to be constructed in
the first term and another ten steamers in the second term. The project will be laid before the Japanese
government when the diet resumes
its sittings two weeks hence.

company staff, at Victoria, was a vis.
itor to Prince Rupert this week on

PRINCE RCPERT JOURNAL
PUBLIC ACCOUNTS OF
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Gratifying Showing Made by the Province's  Receipts
During the Fiscal Year—A Record Has Been
Established With Respect to
Finances.
CHINESE   I'lIMLS
Nothing can more eloquently attest the rapidity of British Columbia
commercial growth than do the public accounts for the last fiscal year,
presented to the legislature by Finance Minister Ellison, an exceptional illustration of growth being
found in the statement of receipts
brought to the provincial treasury
during the just past twelvemonth—
ending tlie 30th of June last—which
shows a total revenue during the period under review of $8,874,741.94
as contrasted with .$4,664,500.99
during the preceding fiscal period,
albeit that period was of but ten
months duration. And this showing
despite material reductions in taxation   under  various  heads.       With
such a showing "by the books of the
treasury" it is np wonder that Finance Minister Ellison is able to
announce a surplus, after the discharge of all pending liabilities of
the province, of something in excess
nf $2,2,ri0,DOO. which is said to be
Hie best financial showing yet made
by any of the provinces of the Dominion. The statement of revenues
as compared with last year's, shows
a reduction only under the head of
game licenses (from $7,290 to $7,-
2S0); while there are increases under all other sources of revenue, in
some cases doubling and even trebling the preceding (and formerly
best year's) revenue. The statement
reads:
VICTORIA— That Chinese-born
children are being educated in the
schools of Victoria at the expense of
the city's ratepayers waos strongly
hinted at by 'Chairman George Jay
at a meeting of the school board.
The question was brought up in the
course of a discussio n on overcrowding in the Fisguard street
school for Chinese children, when
Superintendent Paul stated that Mrs.
stated that Mrs. Wheeler, the principal, was being overtaxed with the
number seeking admittance, and
that the time bad already arrived for
the construction of an additional
room. Chairman Jay declared that
children who had just arrived from
the Orient might be obtaining instruction in that school, which is situated in tlie heart of Chinatown.
He insisted that all children who
were allowed to attend the schools
should at. least have a rudimentary
acquaintance with the English language.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
DISTRICT PROSPERS
C. Harrison of Massett Tells of Development on Queen
Charlottes.
Naden  Harbor Is  a  Busy  Place  in
Connection with Whaling
Stnt ion Work
The Queen Charlottes are continuing to prosper, according to the
Information given by C. Harrison, of
Masset. The latest activity Is in connection with the whaling station
necfion with Ihe erection of the
whaling station at Naden Harbor,
for the Mackenzie &■ Mann syndicate.
Tho eonipany chartered the Rupert
City to carry the supplies for the
place. Pending the time required to
erect bunk houses. , etc., the company used the steamer as a boarding bouse fo rthe force of men employed, keeping the vessel In the
harbor. Now, however, the quarters
on land have been put In place and
are being used.
Mr. Harrison is as enthusiastic
as ever over the prospects of the Islands and anftcpates a very large influx of settlers,
per deposits occur. The central portion, or tihe Altai, is rich in lead
and silver and contains enormous
deposits of iron ore, while in the
eastern portion, which is known as
the Nertchinsk, gold quartz lodes
and placer deposits are to be found.
Already American and European
capital is finding its way into Siberian enterprises, and at present several large copper properties are under development. While eventually
the copper mines of this country will
add materially to the world's supply
of the red metal, they will probably
not play any important part in this
production for many years to come,
as in general, they are not only insufficiently developed, but lie, in inaccessible regions which will require several years to put them on
a. producing basis.
MINING  IN  SIBERIA
John Hays Hammond Appears to Re
Interested in  Developing Mineral  Wealth
The v*isit of Mr. John Hays Hammond to Russia and his recent conferences with the Czar regarding
mining concessions in Siberia, is a
matter of considerable interest both
to mining men and American investors. Mr. Hammond before
leaving, stated that the object of his
trip was to investigate the mineral
wealth of Siberia, and that he hoped
to give American capital the opportunity of participating in tbe exploitation of mining properties in
that country.
Siberia is probably the greatest
undeveloped mining country In the
world today. Its mineral resources
are very rich and extensive, and include large districts where are found
copper, lead, gold, silver and iron.
Siberia may be divided Into three
mineral divisions. The most westerly is known as the Vosskressenski,
In whloh the country's principal cop-

Tommy Burns, shaken from his
recently announced determination to
quit the fighting game for keeps by
the offer of a $12,500 purse to meet

him within the next 60 uays.

We announced this new sales plan
recently, just to feel the pulse of the
people. Simply a small cash payment—then 17 cents a day. That
is the plan In a nutshell.
The result has been such a deluge of applications for machines
that we are simply astounded.
The demand conies from people of
all classes, all ages, all occupations.
The majority of inquiries has
come from people of known financial
standing who were attracted by the
novelty of the proposition. An impressive demonstration of the immense popularity of the Oliver Typewriter.
A startling confirmation of our belief that the Era of Universal Typewriting Is at hand.

easy to run that beginners soon get
in the "expert" class. Earn as you

yours.
Wherever you are, there's work to
be done and money to be made by
using the Oliver. The business world
is calling for Oliver operators. There
are not enough to supply the demand
Their salaries are considerably above

OBJECT  TO   LISTS
Question   Arises   as to   How Property
Owners Shall be Ascertained
Victoria  City   Hn*  Interesting  Point
Raised, Relative to Municipal
Clauses  Act
! . City of iVctoria has an Interesting case arising out of the late
municipal elections, li is based mi a
petition in lie night courts to decide
whether the election just held was
in accordance witli law. The poiml
a. i -iie Is i\ Il ii ie-:,eit m the preparation nf He roters' lists relative to
i o ft) ir-'. ners. B, J. Perry, a defeat! .1 aldei manic candidate and a
sum,.' 0 or.i ni nf Mayor Mnrley,
takes Hie action.
It Is claimed b) .Mr. Perry that so
far as pro) • i ty owners are concerned
the lisl should !"■ made up from the
registry office rolls and nol [rom the
ossessmenl roll. The city assessor
has fololwed the practice of every
assessor in the province In making
up the lists.
The petition of Mr. Perry is as follows:
"\ ictoria, B. C,
"January 14, 1911.
"Mayor and Board of Aldermen of
ihe City of iVctoria:
"Take notice that a petition will
be presented to the supreme or
county court in my behal l as a voter
for the city of Victoria, praying that
the election of the mayor and aldermen, held in this city on the 12th
day of January, be voided on the
following grounds: By reason of the
voters' lists not having been complied or revised or certified in accordance with law, or having been
changed after final revision. And
this petition shall ho taken under the
Municipal Clauses Act, 1896, 59 Victoria, Chapter 38.
"BERNARD ,1. PERRY."
More particularly the petition
deals with the matter of holders of
agreements of sale being registered
as property owners in the city of
Victoria, a question on which it is
stated that City Solicitor McDiarmid
gave an opinion at the court of revision prior io the election. The city
solicitor's opinion is said to have
'been along the lines of .Mr. Perry's
present contention.

The Mobley-Empire libel suit has

in the police court on Wednesday
morning neither'side to the action

The dropping of the case was the
result of an arrangement being
reached outside of court lo call all
proceedings off, a statement being
made by the editor of the Empire
that lie did not Intend in the article

the report. He did not bring in a
minority report. He simply wished
to give his views.
Aid. Newton had for months been
considering Fifth avenue and Fulton
street. He personally would perhaps
ia'ni- the Market place. Taking into
consideration the whole city, he was
inclined to the view that the corner
of Fifth avenue and Fulton street
if if. could be secured would be a
good one. He fnvoredni delaying un-
lil all available sites could be ascertained and then the people could decide by vole on it.
Aid. Hilditch said tlie committee
tirrl ed in ihe decision it did after
rolng into the question fully. It
dated back to last year. An attempt
was made to get a temporary site on
Fulton, li was found .that the foun-
ilation would he 29 feet high. There
would, even with the change in
crude effected, then be a difference
II feel between Fifth streel and
Fulton street. A triangular plot
would be available only. Tbe old
council thought Ihe Market place lie
most imposing site for the city hall.
Tim site was an isolated one. It
would only be necessary io excavate
about three feet and a half in this
siie and raise the basement about
eight feet above the surface. He did
not think there was another site in
the city as suitable as Market place.
Aid. Pattullo thought it might be
well to try and get that site for the
city any way, even if the city hall
were not put on it. He thought
himself, the site was the best in the
city.
Aid. Clayton wanted more light
before deciding this point. He wanted to look more fully into this.
Aid. Pattullo thought it would be
as well to recommend this as the site
so that His Worship might try to
secure the block, if, later they
changed their minds no harm would
be done.
His Worship suggested that the
government might require to know
definitely that the city hall was to
be placed there. If it could not be
so stated the government might refuse to grant it.
Aid. Newton thought the business
section should he considered largely
in the matter of a city hall site.
Aid. Morrissey suggested that the
grades could be overcome easily
with respect to Filth and Fulton
streets. He thought the wishes of
the business people who had invested in the present business centre,
should be consulted in this.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know
from Aid. Morrissey how Fraser
street could be raised, as would be
necessary. The council last year
tried to raise that street two feel
more. It could not do it. Now Aid.
-Morrissey suggested it could be
raised fourteen feet.
Aid. Pattullo wished to know from j [5]
the mayor if the government  would
reserve this site pending a decision.
Ills Worship said it was now not
sold. He felt that if the council
should decide upon this it would be
an inducement for urging immediate
action by the government.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to see action
taken on the report one way or the
oilier.     The  city  was  going  to  re- \
quire a city hall almost at once.    It;
would be a decided saving to erect i
a wing as early as possible.
After    some    further    discussion j
among  the members  of the council
when the question of the likelihood
0 fthe government granting the
if it were not to be required at on
as a city hall site came up.
Mayor Manson said he would do
the best he could in the matter.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the report be laid on the table pending a
decision.
The motion carried.
A plan nas been forwarded to the
city by D'Arcy Tate, of the G. T. P.,

his absence J. II. McMullIn will dispose of any police court cases that
may come up.
