SKEENA THE PREMIER DISTRICT
VINCE
NEW BRITISH COLUMBIA
WILL SEE ACTIVE YEAR
Eyes are Turned in This Direction and the Mining and
Agricultural Sections Will be Invaded by Large
Numbers—Prince Rupert as the Centre of
the Rich Area Will Derive Great
Benefits From the Influx.
/
The estimated expenditure for the
fiscal year by the Provincial Government shows that New British Columbia is very much in the eye of
the members of the administration.
The vote of $225,000 to be expended upon the roads and trails, Independent of the other large expenditures in connection with public
work in the district is an assurance
that the Government recognizes ihat
the country is to make rapid advances and the facilities are to be
provided to enable this development
to take place.
The grant made to this district is
the largest that goes to any one of
the districts in the province. There
was a time when the Okanagan and
Similkameen were tlie envy of the
various representatives in the legislature. These districts with the vast
agricultural development going on
in them were made the recipients of
large appropriations, tlie largest in
the province. There was no denying
the money was needed there to keep
pace with the settlement that was
flowing in. Now, however, the situation is changed and while the appropriations of these interior districts mentioned are not cut down
the government has come to realize
that   there   is   a   vast   area   in     Ihe

north that requires a very heavy expenditure of public funds to keep
pace with the rapid demand for farm
lands and for industrial development. ,
Okanagan the next largest appropriation in the province is $156,001),
which is considerably lower than
Skeena.
Member Dill Well
The member for district, Mayor
.Manson, has shown his ability as
an appropriation getter. When it is
realized that there are strong demands upon the Government from
every part of the province the task
of getting what he did is not an
easy one. The member for the district has the reputation of staying
with any proposition he has in hand
and there is no question that he lost
no time in fireworks while in the
capital hul that lie stayed with hit i
appropriations and the results
should  be most gratifying.
The  money  so  appropriated   will
not be spent directly in  Prince Rupert but in the distribution of it the
; city  will   lie a  gainer,  for the most
of  it   will   eventually   find   Its    way
I back lo Prince Rupert the centre of
j the    district    and    the     permanent
source  of supply.

The votes set aside by the Provincial    Government    this  session
* for tne Skeena District are a sufficient  guarantee    that    for    the
* next few years, at least, the efforts of the administratoin are to be
* directed towards the opening up of  this district,  which   is  so  much
* in evidence at the present time.    Skeena, according to Ihe votes, is
* made the first district in the province, being far in the lead of all
* others for the year in the matter of appropriations. Out of a total

'" ince,  Skena  gets  $225,000,  or about 8 per cent of the  whole  will
* come to  this district.    In  addition to this, there is the heavy expen-
* tliture out of various other votes s tch   as  bridges,   ferries,   work   in

Cariboo District is reassuring to the
people of this city also. That district is contiguous to this one along
the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
and the development of the northern
part of Cariboo, in fact, the whole
of It, must have its effect upon this
port. It will be tributary to here
and with the completion of the road
the merchants of this city will have
the opportunity to make a strong
bid for the trade that is to offer
there.
The vote for this northern portion
of the province will mean much in
the opening up of means of communication with the rich agricultural sections that are located wtih-
In easy reach of the Grand Trunk
Pacific It will also be utilized in
affording the ways of reaching the
mining districts that are proving so
rich and which must in the next
few years be the means of maintaining prosperous centres of population.

would     do   credit   to   a   city     many
times the size of     Prince    Rupert.
These  are  in   a   position   to   furnish
all classes of goods to meet the requirements of the vast district that
is opening up in  tlie matter of supplies.    These are but  the beginning
of the wholesale community that is
to find its home in the metropolis of
the north.    The  row  of five-storey
buildings embracing  tlie    establishments of Kelly and Co., Stewart and!

facturers are awaiting the opportunity to come in and establish
themselves in the city. They are
awaiting tlie decision of the Grand
Trunk Pacific in the matter. The
arrangement with the city of all outstanding questions will be followed
very quickly it is said, by a decision I
by tbe company relative to the lo-'
cation of its own works and the
placing of industrial quarters
the waiting concerns.
Governments Are Favorable
The Government at Victoria
made provision to have this
made the centre of its biisiae.-»i in J
the whole of the north. It has provided for centralizing offices in the
way of registry offices and every
other department so that there may
bono unnecessary delays in tlie
transaction of public business. The
same policy is being carried out by!
the Dominion Government so that
Prince Rupert is assured of being
the capital of, the north so far as
government works are concerned.
The Dominion Government will establish a buoy centre here and in
the end that, sub-station of the Department of Marine and Fisheries
undertakings of the department In
these  northern  waters.
The Growing Line
As the Terminus    of    the    Grand
Trunk     Pacific,     important     works
and offices must be established here
in order to provide for the railway
and the shipping in connection with
it. In tlie case of the Canadian
Pacific Railway there is a division
to a certain extent of these interests
between the cities of Vancouver and
Victoria, the latter city being the
head of the coasting service of the
company. In the case of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and Prince Rupert
there will be no such division. All
of the trade will centre here with
tha advantages  which  go  with   it.
The Government has shown that
it realizes that the time is ripe for
an aggressive policy looking to the
opening up of this pari of the province. There will follow undoubtedly
a very active move on the part of
private individuals. All eyes are in
this direction. It is becoming a
qustion of months only until the
Grand Trunk Pacific- is completed to
the coast. This coming summer
should he marked by a decided move
in all directions both In the city and
in the outlying parts of the district.
Already the plans are ripe in many
quarters and with the opening of the
spring there will he a tremendous
movement. The       transportation
companies are ready for it. Prince
Rupert, it. is safe to say, will not
know itself at the end of the next
eight months.

OTTAWA, Feb. 17.—Sir Wilfrid
Laurier said yesterday that the
House of Commons treaty with the
United States, regulating pelagic
sealing had recently been signed. It
applied to the Pacific Ocean and was
designed to conserve seal, the cessation of killing being limited to a
term of years and not being perpetual.
He said he was not In a position
to give further details until the documents were lormally presented to
Parliament.
The treaty will have an important
bearing upon the industry in this
province. Victoria has been the
home of the sealing fleet of this
coast for many years. In the early
days the business was a lucrative
one but there has been a falling off
in it with the slaughter of the herds
which followed.
In compliance with the regulations adopted by the British Government and the United States the
Indiscriminate killing of the seals
was cut off but with tlie Japanese
not bound by any treaty, inroads
were made by the hunters of that
nation.
For years negotiations have been
on looking to a treaty with the settlement in an amicable way of the
claims of the Victoria owners of
schooners for compensation.
The announcement of the treaty
would indicate that an agreement
has been made to recompense the
owners of the fleet.

THC INSURANCE
Attorney General Explains Main Features
of the Measure on Second
Reading.
Legislature    Seems    Well    Satisfied
With Bill Which Will Protect
All Interests Concerned
lion. W. Bowser, attorney-general
of the province, in moving the second  reading  of  the  bill   relating   to ] or   the   mutual   companies   who   are
is true tiiat we have not much con-
trol of these outside offices, but if
ihe head office refuses to give the
inspector access to its books, that
would appear suspicious, and tiie
Minister of Finance, who will have
charge of the insurance department,
may cancel their licenses in this
province. We also do away with
the licensed broker. Formerly an
agent would come from Montreal or
Toronto and write up a large insurance and then leave. We now shut
them out, with the result that tne
company that wants to do business
In British Columbia must be licensed
here.    Any company such as Lloyds
fire insurance, said the government
was taking a most Important Btep in
introducing this bill to control the
business Of fire insurance in this
province, They had been able to
get some information of similar legislation m other provinces, but he-
did no ttliink any of these sister
previa- es had gom- so far as this.
They wanted to see the public and
those doing business here protected,
and at he same time the government
did not wish to interfere with tlie
freedom of large insurers who insured outside of the province. The
bill had been principally brought
about by agents engaged in the insurance business in the province,
who were paying the taxation 01 one
per cent on the premiums collected
here. They claimed to he placed at
a disadvantage by large insurers insuring outside the province; and the
insurers met the argument by replying that here was no reason
why they should not do so if they
could get get better rates. The insurance men replied that these outside companies brought very little
capital into the province and paid
no taxation and it was unfair to
slolw  them  to  compete.
To gel at he facts the government
has appointed a Royal Commission,
composed of Mr. R. E. Lennie, of
Nelson; Mr. McDowall, of Victoria (a former member of'the Dominion Parliament), and Mr. A. B.
Erskine, a well-known business man
of Vancouver. These commissioners
had held sitings for many weeks in
various parts of the province, and
the result of their labors was embodied in the splendid report on which
this bill was founded. It was objected by those insuring outside that
certain insurance:, such as blanket
policy, could not be obtained from
local ageiits, and that they could not
get better insurance with such companies as Lloyds and by some of the
mutual companies that carried' on a
large business By this bill they
were still given the liberty of placing their insurance with outside
companies, but at tlie same time
these must be put on an equality
with the firms doing business in the
province. For that reason insurers
with outside companies were required to pay to the government a
tax of two per cent on their premiums, and at the same time the gov-
arumentwas raising tlie taxation of
local companies to two per cent.
They considered  they  were justified
noi licensed cannot place insurance
here, and anyone who wishes- to insure with them must do so by correspondence."
Mutual-  Exempt
The Attorney General continued.
that under the law of the province
mutual insurance companies wen-
allowed to be formed, and these act-
eel only among ihcmselvc-s it was
thought fair that they should be
exempt from the provisions of tlie
act. Complaint about the high rates
charged by some of the companie:
doing business here had been made
before the commission, but the government thought this could be best
regulated by competition, and allowing people to place their insurance
with   outside  companies.
He did not think that two per cent
could be considered a high tax, be
cause he found that in other place;
where there was a fire insurance
department it generally ran much
higher. In California, for example
it was four per cent; in Ohio, it was
two and a half per cent, and in
Oregon, it was two per cent, but the
latter state did not provide such a
department as was provided for under this act.
"We have also met the wishes of
the insurance people," said Hon.
Mr, Bowser, "in not allowing munic
ipal corporations to tax insurance
companies. That was a matter of
considerable complaint among the
insurance men, as they said they
had to go to great expense in incorporating and getting certificates from
the Dominion Government, and
when they established an office here
they were also taxed by the municipalities. We felt that if they paid
the two per cent taxation to the
province that should be sufficient. I
will he glad to leave the bill before
the house for a few days so that
insurance people or others having
suggestions to make will he given
an opportunity to do so, and if,necessary it may he amended in committee."
The bill passed second reading
unopposed.
HALL OF TARA

Within a few weeks the historic

Persons insuring with outside

was placed upon the Insurer was be

the board of directors of the British
Columbia Anti-Tuberculosis Society,
held in the city hall, Victoria.
Dr. C. H. Vrooman, medical superintendent, in his report says:
"Looking to the future I would say
British Columbia has a unique opportunity to become the most foremost of Canadian provinces In the
fight against tuberculosis. A sanitarium beautifully situated, with accommodations for ninety patients, a
ranch convenient for supplies, and a
climate peculiarly adapted for the
treatment of consumption, all combine to give this opportunity."
He pointed out that during tlie
year ending December 31 there had
been 58 admissions, and out of
these 26 bad been advanced cases.
This feature was unavoidable, as
Tranquille was the only place in the
province for the care of consumptives, At the same time the admission of incurables was not fair to
the incipient, and more curable
cases, who were necessarily brought
more or less into intimate contact
with those In the advanced stages of
the  disease.
(if the 58 admissions there were
11 males and 17 females; In nationalities—( anadian 27; Scotch 111;
English 11; Americans 3; Irish 11,
and Italian 1. The patients were
drawn from Ihe following points—
Vancouver I'll; Victoria 10; New
Westminster 1; Kamloops 3; Mara
'■'•: Salmon Arm 11; Cascade 1; Rev-
elstoke 1; Duncans 1; Union Bay 1;
Stewart 1; Sidney 1; Ashcroft 1;
Penticton 1; Cumberland 1; Nakusp
1; Ymir 1; Merritt 1, and Pernio 1.
One of the most interesting features of the report was the fact
thai those most susceptible to consumption are between the ages of
L'11 and 30. The statistics were: Between the ages of lh and 15, 2
eases; 1 ."> and 20, ■> cases; 20 and
2.*,, 12 cases; 2.", and 30, 1 "1 cases;
30 and 35, I) cases; 3.1 and 40, .">
eases; HO and 00, 1 case, and be-
tween (10 and 70, 2 cases.
The board of directors' report
showed that the full maintenance
cost for 1910 was $20,240.07, an
average cost per patient per day
of  $2.05.     The  board  regretted   to
have to report that no hospital was
yet built for advanced consumptives.
Dr. C. J. Fagan made an appeal
for the prohibition of indiscriminate
expectoration. There were laws relating to -this practice, but they
were not enforced by municipalities.
Dr. A. P. Proctor and Dr. Brydone
■lack insisted strongly on the need
for   preventive   measures.
Officers were  elected  as  follows:
Hon. president, James Dunsniuir;
president; A. C. Flumerfelt; vice
presidents, R. Marpole, J. S. C. Fraser and A. .1. Gullet!;,; treasurer,

WEDDING RINGS
The   History   of   This   Feature   Con,
nected with the Marriage
Ceremony
According to the ancient ritual in
marriage, the husband began the
ring business by placing it upon the
bride's thumb, and putting it successively on the next two fingers, pronouncing for each a personal of the
Trinity; with a final amen when
the fourth finger was reached, and
there the ring remained.
The Greek church ritual directs
that tlie ring be placed upon die
right hand. Puritan influence sought
to abolish the ring as a vain and
heathen emblem, but ihe sweet old-
fashioned custom of giving and
taking emblem, "for our love's
sake," yet remains to us.
Bel roi hal or engagement rings
vary in fashion nowadays, and always depend, or should, on the purso
of tlie donor. Where there are no
limitations of this sort his taste, If
it be perfect, will lead him to choose
a diamond solitaire, and of tlie best
he can afford, a small and pure blue
white stone being altogether preferable to a large stone. Some prefer a ring set with three stones, gene-rally a sapphire set between two
diamonds. Others select- a ruby or
an emerald, which signifies promise
of  happiness.
Pew persons choose pearls for an
- ngagemenl ring us pearls are sup-
posed to typify tears. They arc also
too perishable to become emblems of
love, which, in ils first glow nt
least, is always understood to be
indestructible. Their beauty Is very
precarious, being dimmed or aged,
as the lapidary expresses It, by con-
annihilates them completely.
SNOW  IS  COSTLY
Railways  Have Had Large Expense
in Keeping the Rouds Clear
This Winter
That the railways are finding It
very expensive work in maintaining
any kind of train service is apparent
in the fact that the snow trouble in
the Brandon district has c*ost the
Great Northern $9,000 to keep 110
miles of road from there to the
boundary in decent condition and
even with that heavy expenditure
the company has had great difficulty
in maintaining service. A gang of
SO men witli a big engine and a
snow plow is steadily keeping the
line clear. These men are paid from
$2.25 to $2.50 a day and as they
are also provided with,their board,
it is pretty remunerative employment for the winter.

THE MINING BELT
Copper River Properties are to Be Developed-Promising
Outlook.
Preparations    Arc    Made    for
Spring—Swede  Group
Looks Well
the
Dan Mason came up from Copper
City and reports that Ed. and Fred.
Mlchaud and himself will very shortly commence Ihe erection of a cabin
in on their mineral claim about five
miles out from Copper City and haul
supplies to their camp when Ihe
snow is on tlie ground, says the Inland Colonist of Kitselas. They hope
to have a branch from the main
Lakelse trail built out to their
camp next spring, as such a branch
would tap a number of properties
as well as their own.
They own three claims, all located
within five miles of Copper City,
from which good shipping values
have been obtained in all ore they
have assayed up to date. There are
two veins on these claims, one vein
ten feet wide giving assay of $8 In
gold and 4S ounces in silver. The
other vein is between 75 to 100
feet wide, and assays have been obtained running as high as $24 in
gold and 14 ounces in silver.
It is Dan's opinion that were
trains carrying all classes of freight,
he and the Mlchaud brothers would
have no difficulty in making ship-
ents of ore from their property right
now that would pay them a handsome profit over taking it out. After
cutting a trail from the main Lakelse road, it would be very easy to
haul their ore in over the snow and
deliver il right at the track at Dob-
bie's.
in addition to their claims, within a few hundred feet of them are
located Messrs. Andrew and Olsen,
who have a big dyke from which
they are taking out. good ore. Dan
and the Mlchaud brothers were out
to their (the Swedes) camp a few
weeks ago and saw Ihe partners
pounding 1111 and panning rock from
which they obtained a string of
"colors" as long as the little finger,
and it seemed lo Dan that every
piece they pounded up, panned better than  die one before.
He says tlie "proper spirit" exists
in Copper City essential lo the encouragement of Ihe mining industry in thin   vicinity, and he fully ex-
 's In see everything in that line
on  the boom  down   there this  coining season.

STUDY EARTHQUAKES!
LAND PURCHASE NOTICES
F. Napier Denison oi vicesria (lives interesting Talk   uit
Subject.
He   Traces   the   Development   of   Information   Relative  to
the Subject
"Victoria," said F. Napier Denison
in his lecture on seismic research,
given in the city mentioned, at the
Broad street hall, "is just far
enough outside a great sp'smlr zone
to be safe from actual disaster, and
just near enough to make it possible to measure from here, by the
seismograph, tlie great forces at
work In the interior of the earth.
It is highly possible that were such
operations extended here some important discoveries might be made.
There is little doubt that from a
seismic standpoint research work
should  be extended on this coast."
Mr. Denison spoke before a very
large audience, the hall being very
well filled. He illustrated his lecture with most interesting lantern
slides showing earth formations and
explaining in part how earthquakes are likely to occur. The lecture was given in language readily
understood and not in scientific terminology. The address was given
under the auspices of the Natural
History Society.
Mr. Denison said that from his
researches there certainly seemed to
be a connection between certain
movements of the pendulum I by
which earthquakes are recorded)
and ihe times when coal mining disasters occur. It was possible, lie
said, that when great earth strains
occurred, gases were dislodged and
escape dinto the mines. Following
such escape, it was only necessary
for ignition to take place to explode
the mine. Arguing along this line,
Mr. Denison considered that it might
be possible io determine the time
when such si rain would occur and
possibly their period of duration,
when mine Inspectors could safeguard against disaster by taking extra precautions.
Mr. Denison also draws the conclusion thai the lime is at hand
when ii will he possible to tell when
earthslrains are clue, ill tlie same
manner as the weather conditions.
He believes it will also become possible to tell the duration of the
strain, lie spoke of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, ami said
thai hrough the influence of the
sun and moon the earth contracted
and expanded ihre.-o inches daily.
Slides of -Mount Vesuvius were
shown io Illustrate locations of seismic  intensity.
The lecturer quoted Professor
Milne and Professor Omori, and explained many of Ihe interesting theories held by these great seismic
authorities. He told how Professor
Milne believed that in a process of
evolution caused by continuous
earth unrest another great continent
was being formed in the neighborhood of the Fast Indian Archipelago.
He dealt in detail Svith the San
Francisco earthquake of 1906, illustrating its effects on buildings, how
it was recorded on the local seismograph, and the deductions drawn
from it by Professor Omori, the eminent Japanese seismologist, who, as
a result of the great disturbance,
was able to predict the earthquake
which happened shortly afterwards
at Valparaiso.

OUR GROWING TIME
Willi tlie opening of the spring
northern British Columbia is to become Hie Mecca of a vast army of
people who have their eyes turned
thi-- way. The- rush thai will come
is mil confined to one ■ Ingle class.
On the contrary it Includes mining
men, tin- seekers after farm lands
and those who are n ady to invest
in various enterprises thai are to
find their headquarters in the north.
In connection with this movemenl
(he city of Prince Rupert is to play
an important part. It is the centre
of Ihe whole of this activity and
must  benefit from the movement.
The various shipping companies
are in the field to do business on a
scale never before attempted in tlie
north and with Hie facilities which
they possess to push this line of
business there can be no doubt as
to tlie results. The transportation
companies will take the means of
ensuring the business for their concerns so that the steamers will not
Se run al a loss. It is safe to estimate on a travel north this season
that will exceed anything in the past
not even excluding the days of the
Klondike rush.
Prince Rupert can count on an
ictive year and already the business
men are preparing for it. Visitors
will this year be able to judge of
what the city will look like when the
streets are completed, for the work
will be advanced far enough to permit of the proper sizing up of the
situation. Real estate especially in
the business section will feel the effects and a ready market should be
established.
UNFAIR  TACTICS
The insinuation made by a local
paper that because Un- acting mayor,
Aid. Smith, and \hl. Kirkpatrick
were stockholders in the Empress
theatre thai there was some relation
between the proposition made by the
owners lo reduce the licenses paid
by theatres and the payment of the
Empire's bill, is rather unfair and
far-fetched. When the proposition
for a reduction in the licenses of
playhouses came before the finance
committee of the council, Aid. Smith
and Aid. Kirkpatrick refused to
have anything to do with it and referred the whole matter to the council. Any one who knows Hie two
aldermen would feel perfectly satisfied thai neither of them would
stoop to anything that was not absolutely lair in order lo save a few
dollars to a company in which they
wen- interested. The aldermen
showed all the way through, a disposition to hate nothing whatever
to do with tlie particular proposition.
In view of tlie history of tlie passing of printing lust year to a concern
after a majority of ihe council became stockholders in the company,
It is surely with lead grace that such
in Insinuation is made as has been
put forward.

"That this meeting heartily condemns tlie Order-in-Council providing for enforced vaccination, and demands tlie Immediate repeal of the

So strong was the meeting worked
ip on the point that one of the
speakers, Rev. Dr. Davtes, went so
tar as to state that if it became necessary, in Ihe Interests of a test

nor should they vaccinate him or his
children if he had a six-shooter

following officers were elected for
ihe ensuing year: Hon. presidents,
Hon. R. I.. Borden and Hon. u. McBride, Premier of British Columbia;

CANADIAN  OLUB  PLANS
VICTORIA—The new president
of Ihe Canadian Club in Victoria
promised at the annual meeting
that the present year would make a
record, for they intended to be very
active. It was decided that local
men would sometimes be called upon
to deliver addresses and read papers
and that a campaign would be inaugurated to increase ihe membership and make the club thoroughly
representative of the city of Victoria.
It was pointed out during the
course of a discussion that an opinion was abroad to the effect that
only native-born Canadians were eligible for membership, but that new
arrivals from the Old Country could
not join. An efofrt will be made to
dispel this fallacy and to make it
c-'ear that any British citizen can become a member by securing a nominator and a seconder from among
the members of the club and being
passed upon by the executive committee.
Another move that was made was
to affiliate the club with the Association of Canadian Clubs, thus re'
ceiving the benefit of co-operation
and unity of work and purpose.
The following are the new officers
elected: Hon. president, His Honor
I.ieut.-Governor Paterson, president,
Lindley Crease; first vice-president,
II. A. Munn; second vice-president,

lion. Joseph Chamberlain has
written the following letter to the
chairman and members of the tariff
commission which was established
some years ago on  his initiative:
Gentlemen, 1 learn that the tariff
commission will meet Thursday for
furl her consideration of the report
on preference which they have
drawn up in response to a request
made by me in a letter of November
■".. When this is completed we shall
have provided all that is requisite
for working oul the scheme of preference wiih our dominions across
ihe sens. I am more than ever convinced that without preference we
cannot hope to maintain and develop
the unity of the empire. Since, the
tariff commission first undertook its
work, however, we have had lo take
Into account new arrangements with
foreign countries and now have to
consider the proposed reciprocity
agreement of Canada and the United
States. Without presuming to offer
advice to the people of Canada about
their own affairs, I cannot help
feeling that they are rather premature. I wish that they might have
at least waited until the meeting of
the imperial conference, when an opportunity of discussing a principle
of such imperial Importance with
represntatives of the other self-
governing dominions would have
presented itself and when tlie ques-
tlon of preference might have been
aptly considered. There is moreover anoihe raspect to he taken Into
consideration. It should not he lost

in the policy of Canada, which hith- j
erto has been an independent nation-1
al one. Its results may be far-reaching but whatever may be the outcome of tlie present situation, tlie
cause of imperial preference must
not he abandoned. There must be
no whittling away of the policy
which we believe is essential to Imperial unity and those of us who
have devoted ourselves to the furtherance of this great ideal in this
country are bound to see to it that
nothing which has    happened    shall

our work vain. The fight must be
carried on with unabated vigor and

SPORTS
LOCAL BONING  MATCH
Prince Rupert lovers of sport will
have an ample opportunity of enjoying themselves at the Empress Theatre next Wednesday night, February
22, when Oscar Nelson of Vancouver
and Mickey O'Brien of Seattle will
box 15 rounds.
Both these boys have an enviable
reputation for cleverness and hardhitting.
Nelson has been seen here in action before, having received the decision over Harry Lomoard a year
ago. This fast game lad has also
won many decisions in Vancouver
and Victoria and has a host of admirers in Rupert. He will arrive
on the Camosun tonight and will do
light gymnasium work only, he being in fine shape always on account
of his regular habits.
O'Brien has won his last three
fights in masterly style, whipping
Eddie Marino before Hie Graystone
Athletic Club of Seattle, Eddie Shannon of Seattle and Billy Mack ot
Los Angeles, all  in the past month.
Frank  Bowness  of  this  city  saw
the go  between  O'Brien  and  Marino and was so impressed    by    his
cleverness in disposing of this aspirant for Abe Attell's title    that    i.e
Immediately wired Julius Levy, who
is  matchmaker     for    the     Empress
Theatre Company,    regarding    him. i
"Billy" Wright saw O'Brien's    next j
go  with   Billy  Mack  and   confirmed j
Bowness' judgment and the go was,
arranged  with   Nelson.     Both   boys
will  be In town  on  the Camosun.
BOAT DESIGNER
Mr. Edson B. Shock, who next to
the wizard Herreshoff, is probably
the best known and most successful
yacht designer and naval architect
on the American continent, is in
Vancouver and intends to make his
home there in future.
.Air. Shock is a graduate from the!
drafting bench of A. Gary Smith,!
one of the greatest designers of
schooners in the world. Since go-j
ing into business for himself somej
years ago Mr. Shock has achieved e
marked success in designing boats!
that have won some of the most]
notable aquatic and ocean races on;
the Atlantic.
The Alanbee,  formerly owned  by I
.Mr. R. P. .McLenann, is from .Mr.
Shock's board. A sister boat, of the
Alanbee, also designed by Mr. Shock,
won the ocean race from New York
lo Bermuda in 1909.
The first commission which Mr.
Shock will undertake as soon as he
gets settled in an office, will be to
design a 55-foot power yacht for
.Mr. E. J. McFeely, who some time
ago caught the boating craze from
his partner. Mr. McLennan, who
some time ago sold the Alanbee to
the provincial government, is also
considering having another and
larger boat built, which will probably mean another job for Mr. Shock.

Earnings of Over $20,000,000
The quarterly reports of the United States Steel Corporation for the
three months ended December 31,
as made public, shows earnings of
$25,999,987, with net earnings of
$20,462,460.
These figures are somewhat below recent estimates and the foiling
off Is largely due to December I
earnings, which were only $7,249,-j
991. Total surplus for 1910
amounted to $16,928,119, and the]
balance of the surplus carried into.
this   year   is   close   to     $11,000,000
despite the charging off of $6, ,-
null for expenditures to be made in
the way of new plants,
Total earnings of tne corporation
for   1910,  aggregated   $1 41,1 -14,001,
which compares with    $131,941,414 j
In   1909 and  $91,847,710 In  1908.
Only twice before have the earnings exceeded those of last year. In
1907, the record year m the history
of the American steel trade, the corporation earned $100,964,074, and
in 1906, tlie second best year, earnings amounted to $156,624,273.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
SETTLE THE LAND
Hood Farming Valley Close to  Prince
Rupert Being Exploited.
Extews River Is  Avenue  to a  Hich
Territory Within Kusy
1 teach
H. M. Wood returned Friday last
from his trip of cruising land in the
Extews valley for a number of
Washington farmers. He reports
that, the valley so far as the bottom
is concerned, Is not quite so wide as
has been reported, but from bench
to bench It Is about the same average width as the Skeena river valley. One mile from bench to bench,
will cover the width of tlie bottom
lands, says the Inland Colonist.
But his cruising has resulted in
making known the fact that instead
of running north and south as has
always been snupposed, the general
course of tne river aud lay of the
valley Is due eabt and west after going the first mile up river. From
the point where the Extews is
crossed by the G. T. P. io a mile up
the river, it runs almost due north
an dsoulli, then it takes a slight turn
to the west, and then sharp to the
north again, but at this point where
it takes the first turn to the west,
it rounds the range of hills and the
valley opens up for a distance of a
number of miles to the west, the river instead of continuing on a course
to the north, merely crosses at different points from one side of the
valley to the other, on its general
course to the west in direction of
Prince Rupert. From the strike of
the hills on both sides of the valley, Mr. Woods believes that the
valley continues in a true westerly
direction for many miles from where
he finished his work of cruising,
which was four miles up the river.
The site for the building of a
•wagon road from the G. T. P. to the
extreme end of the valely touching
the ranches Is ideal, with of course,
as is the case in any farming district, the building of a bridge here
and there crossing the streams that
are feeders to the main river.
• The land is level and all of it
can almost be called meadow land,
the trees which are spruce, being
so far apart as to make . it one of
the easiest clearing propositions lie
has  yet  seen.    Under  the  trees  in
many places then was no snow, on
account of the protecting branches
above, and at bese places the ground
was covered with grass. He believes
from signs he saw, that there are
quite a number of deer in the valley. As to the current of the Extews, he says that he believes that
during any stage of water, one
would have no trouble in going up
and down  the river in a row-boat.
He left again on another trip to
the Extews to cruise out additional
acreage up ihe river, a number of
farmers other than those for whom
locations have already been made,
desiring to secure tracts in time for
early settlement in the spring.
As the Kltsunikalum valley is settled for more than fifteen miles
from the river, and the land already
held at a high price at the extreme
north or upper end as well as clown
near the railway, there Is very little doubt hut what every available
acre in the Extews will he taken up,
to the extreme west end before
spring. lip to date all purchasers of
this land are farmers, who Intend
settling on the land, and as the
number of locations now amount to
twenty-five, it looks as though In
another year there will be quite a
prosperous farming community in
the Extews valley and almost within
a step of Prince Rupert.

BRITISH NAVAL GUNNERY
New System Said to Double the Rate
of Hitting
The London Telegraph prints a
report on the development of naval
gunners, which may double the
present rate of hitting of the newest
large armored ships.
The new battleship Neptune left
Spithead on Saturday to make a
series of important gunnery trials in
the Mediterranean. The principal
gunnery experts, including Vice Admiral Sir Percy Scott, inspector of
target practice, are on board to
watch the trials. The officials refuse
all information regarding the experiments, which, according to the Telegraph, are expected to leaa to a revolution In gunnery.
The nature of the reported developments is not indicated more
clearly than the suggestion that it is
due to notable changes in construction compared with the original
Dreadnoughts, principally in reference to the disposition of the guns.
The Neptune is the first vessel to
have wing barbettes arranged in
echelon, enabling two 12-incb guns
in   each   of   five   barbettes    to     he

Committee Reports
The Houston Memorial committee,
consisting of W. G. Dennis, J. A.
Kirkpatrick and G. R. Naden, reported that there was now $004 subscribed. It was felt that there
would before the lists closed be
$750 available for the purpose.
The committee expressed a desire to
furnish the operating ward throughout, in view of the statement made
by the Indies of the. Auxiliary Hull
they had Ihe supplies for all the
wards it was agreed lhat the .Memorial committee should take over
the necessary equipment from the
ladies for this ward, paying for it
and thus giving the Auxiliary thai
much more for other necessary
work. Any other equipment for the
ward lhat was necessary to equip il
hi first-class shape, it was decided
would be paid for oul of Iho funds
of the' committee, Ihe whole expenditure being subject to approval Of
the- Hoard. The funds available
indicate that the ward can he furnished in first-class shape by the
committee,
More   Insurance
A report from the Finance Committee was received in which it was
announced thai there had been
$3,000 more insurance placed on the
building to cover the interests held
by the board. It was announced that
this insurance had been divided
among three of the local firms doing
business and that as soon as the
equipment was in place in the hospital there would be $2,000 more
put on which would be placed with
two other firms in the city.
In this connection the attention of
the board was called to the practice
which is followed by some companies of specifying in the policy that
in case an adjuster is required that
the expense In that connection shall
be borne by the insured. This meant
that there might be a rather large
bill in sending an adjuster from
the outside here and reduce tlie insurance collected.
The members of the board disapproved of placing insurance with
any such provision in the policy.
An equipment which the Medical
Association of the city approved of
and which was reported to be absolutely essential to the hospital was
ordered to he sent for.
The members of the board took
occasion of the meeting being held
at. the hospital to inspect the progress of the work. The supplies are
being received and the matron, Miss
McTavish, and her staff, are busy
getting the institution in shape to
do work in.
Before the members of the Ladies'
Auxiliary left it was decided that
there should be a formal opening
probably early next week just before the hospital is opened for the
reception of patients. Some of the
wards will then be equipped and the
public win be asked to be present
and inspect the premises. The
ladies will supply lea, sandwiches
and cake, for Which a nominal
charge will be made to aid in the
funds of the  institution.
