THIS POST MADE AN
IMPORTANT ONE
Resident Engineer of Public Works Department
Stationed at Prince Rupert will Report
Direct to Ottawa-Will Have Charge
of whole Coast of Comox-Atlin
and the Yukon Territory
as well—Has Entered
Upon his Duties.
The arrival of C. B. Hull of the
public works department at Ottawa
In this city is of more than ordinary
importance to this place and to the
whole of this northern part of the
Pacific Coast. His arrival is the
direct result of the efforts of the
member for the district, H. S. Clements, who has been most persistent
in his efforts to see that the district
which he represents is properly looked after. In the past there has been
a resident engineer of the public
works department located at New
Westminster and from here he has
covered the whole of the coast. This
was G. A. Keefer, who died a few
days ago. Mr. Clements was able
to convince the department at Ottawa that this vast northern portion
of the coast was of sufficient importance to warrant the placing of
an engineer In charge of the work
of it. Accordingly Mr. Hull was
appointed.
The new appointee is to be in
no way subservient to the southern
office. On the contrary, he has
equal rank with the engineer that
fills that office, and reports direct
to Ottawa on all matters that come
under his supervision. He has as
a territory to cover, the whole coast
line of the district of Connx-Atlin
and the Yukon. The territory is
certainly large enough and there can
be no question that the time is not
far   distant   when   there   will   have
to be a division made In this area
that has been assigned to him.
Mr. Hull will begin his work at
once. He has, in fact, already entered upon his duties and is leaving
in a few days for some of the points
within easy reach of here for the
purpose of looking Into the needs
of these places in the matter of
wharves and various other public necessities.
He will have an office in the new
building which is being erected on
Third Avenue in which the post office will be placed and with a staff
which he may require will dispose
of all the business that may come
under his charge.
The appointment of Mr. Hull
brings this city into marked prominence. It makes it the centre from
which will be transacted all the business in connection with the public
works department on the whole
coast north of Vancouver.
In the department of marine there
is a start made in the same direction. The opening of the station at
Digby Island with an agent in command will also help to make this
port an important one. It has been
arranged that this station shall be
subordinate to the one at Victoria
at the start. This will undoubtedly
only be a temporary matter, however, and there will be a standing
given to the local station in common
with  the  one  in  the  south.
CLAIM THE TROPHY
Skidegate Indian Band Arrives in the
City Ready to Take Part
in Competition.
They  Will   Claim   the   Cup  for  the
Year as n  Result of the  Fact
That No Notice Was Given
There is likely to he trouble over
the Indian band competition as a
result of then calling off of the
competition for today. A year
ago when the cup was put up it was
understood that there was to be a
yearly competition for it. It was
moreover, designated that the winner
of the cup for three years in succession should be entitled to retain
the  cup.
This year when it was decided
to withdraw the celebration for Empire Day no notice seems to have
been sent to the Indian bands that
the event was not to be held. Accordingly Ihe Skidegate band yesterday, with no notice that there
would not he a competition, arrived
in (he city, ready to take pari in
the competition and make the nl-
tempt lo again carry off the prize
as was done by them last year. To
their dismay, they learned on arrival ;
for the first time that there was
to be no contest until Inter In the
year. They are ' Indignant' at the i
matter and contend thai in the ah-1
sence of any notice they are pre- j
pared to claim the cup for this year,
or compete for it if so desired. They
are prepared to appear today
and contest for the prize and in the
absence of anyone else appearing to
compete for it they claim that they
are entitled to rank as the champions for the year.
These Indians are indignant at the
treatment that has been accorded
them In this matter. In the absence
of any notice they have left work
to come here at great expense and
inconvenience.
On Saturday the band intends to
give a concert on the wharf for the
benefit of the citizens. The Kitkat-
la   baud   has   also   been   practising
here for the competition but they
were aware that the contest had
been postponed.

BUMPER    CROP
Provincial    Horticulturist    Declares
Prospects Were Never Brighter
for Fruit Yield in Okanagan
R. M, Winslow, the provincial horticulturist, brings back to Victoria
a glowing account of the prospects
of the Okanagan district, where he
has been attending the British Columbia Fruit Grower's Association
conference.
The Okanagan is _ expecting a
bumper crop both of vegetables and
fruit, he says. Little winter injury
has been* done, and nearly every
peach tree is said to have a good
crop, while ai Peaohland apricots are
already one inch long. Cherries are
setting heavy crops; many of the
trees should yield a quarter of a
Ion. Apples and peaches will need
considerable thinning io obtain
good sized fruit. There is an enormous increase in the acreage of., land
under potatoes, onions and tomatoes,
and the present estimate is that the
crop yield of ihis district will he
double that of last year.
The C. P. R. has placed the contract for f)00 tons of potatoes for
their dining cars, no tuber to be
over one and a half pounds or under
one pound. Special seed has been
set for this crop, which will be
grown in the Okanagan.

Montreal, May 23.—Although, according to the regulations prohibiting the keeping of pigs, pigs cannot be kept in the city limits, the

near the centre of the city no less
than 700 hogs are kept which are

He Says Too Many Bishops Are Living Off Fat of Lund While Clergy
Are Making Hare Living
Portland, May 23.—At a gathering of the United Clericals held yesterday, at which many clergy from
British Columbia were in attendance,
Rev. Baxter Balkere of Oregon declared that there were too many
bishops in the Episcopal Church living on the fat of the land while
some of the clergy were making a
bare living. This statement came
as a bombshell, but went unnoticed
except by Dishop De Pence of New
Westminster, who said the Church
had not enough bishops to transact
the business requiring attention.

FIRST   EXCURSION
Many will Take Advantage of Trip to
Terrace Today Over the
G. T. P.
Programme of Games Will Be Provided at the Up-River Point
for   Excursionists
There,, will be a large number of
citizens make the trip to Terrace today to celebrate the holiday. This
is the first excursion that the G.T.P.
has run over the line of the company
from this point and it will afford
an excellent opportunity for those
who have not been up the river since
the completion of the first part of
the road to make the tour and study
the conditions that prevail along the
line. '
At Terrace there is to be a programme presented consisting of
baseball and football. There will
be several teams go from here to
take part in the games and there
will in addition be a large number
who will make the day one for holding picnics at the end of the journey.
It is the intention of General Superintendent Meehan to hold excursions on the line at frequent intervals during the year. He realizes
that there is a desire on the part
of the citizens of Prince Rupert to
take advantage of an outing for a
day amid the delightful surroundings that exist at the up-river points.

on the Queen Charlotte Islands, is

So Called Progressives are not Recognized by
the B. C. Conservative Association and
Do not Speak for the Rank and
File of the Party in the City—It
has no Recognition at Headquarters at Victoria nor
at Ottawa.
The so-called Progressive Conservative Association of this city has
no standing with the Conservative
party, either here or elsewhere in
the province or the Dominion. For
the Liberal party, it is not pretendejl
that the Journal is in a position to
speak. The Progressives may have
connection with that party but from
what one is able to learn with respect to that party it also would
repudiate any of the actions of the
Progressives.
Under the delusion that this organization was serving a noble purpose in the party some loyal Conservatives were led astray and identified themselves with this body.
Most of these that were so mislead
have seen the error of their ways
and have recognized that the Progressives as a permanent organization existed for the direct purpose
of furthering the cause of those who
had some object to serve.
The B. C. Conservative Association, which is the central body of
the party both with respect to Dominion affairs and also provincial
matters of a political nature does
nol recognize the Progressives.
There is but one body in the city
that is recognized by that central
body and that is the Prince Rtiftert
Conservative Association. The same
applies also to Hie governments at
Victoria and at Ottawa. There is
only the legitimate Conservative As
sociation of the city that is recognized.
The Progressives, so called, are
frequently in evidence seeking to
make trouble in the ranks of the
Conservative party but failing signally so to do. Under the guise of
being Conservatives this organization seeks to do what an honorable
opposition is precluded from doing.
Its grand object is to stir up strife
in the party in the hope of gaining
a personal advantage.
Those within the party know well
the objects of this organization and
are well satisfied to allow it to continue its methods. Those who may
not know all the facts, however,
should not be misled by the wild
vaporings of that body. It is without standing in the party and without influence.

TO LIVE IN WEST
Empire Day is nol  to pass in ihe
city   without   recognition.     n   has
long    been    regarded    as    peculiarly
Childrens' Day in this city, but owing  to  the  fact  that   there  was  to
be  an   excursion   to  Terrace   it   was
decided that there should be a withdrawing of the events for this year.
Late yesterday, however, il was felt
that there should be something done
to continue the childrens' sports in
view of the fact that there were to
be so many of them remain in the
city.    Accordingly Chief Vickers, the
friend of the children, made a tour j
of  the city  and  solicited  donations j
towards prizes for the events.    He.
succeeded in securing these and ac-!
cordlngly there will  be a series of j
events put on.
There  will  be about  fourteen  of)

NO PAPEI! TOMORROW
Owing to the fact that today is a
public holiday there will be no
Journal published tomorrow morning, thus allowing the staff of the
paper to enjoy the holiday today.
A  FAULT FINDER
Always ready to discredit anyone,
the organ of the Progressives in this
city attempts to cast reflections
upon the representative in the House
of Commons, H. S. Clements. Now
the reputation of Mr. Clements will
suffer little from the attacks from
that quarter because the value of
the services that he is rendering the
city and the district as the representative at Ottawa is too well recognized by both Conservatives and
Liberals to be injuriously affected
by any petty insinuations that may
be thrown out against him from the
source referred to.
It is a most transparent fallacy to
represent that the member for the
district is attempting to hold back
the construction of the permanent
post office building one day longer
than is necessary. It is known to
all concerned that Mr. Clements has
been most insistent with the department at Ottawa to secure the immediate construction of the building.
Even if that building were commenced tomorrow it would take a
very considerable time to allow of
its completion. This building Is to
be a large one and there is an immense amount of excavation to be
done on the spot where it is supposed to be located. Mr. Clements
realizes as well as anyone that the
work should be started at as early
» dale as possible in order lo insure
the completion in a reasonable time.
When lie was inn' ;• leu days ago
he explained the reason of the delay.
There wen- no reflections cast upon
anyone in the matter. Tlie G. T. R,
in "rile." io have another mailer of
negotiation with the government settled, namely, the decision on the
point of what would be paid for the
foreshore privileges on the harbor,
delayed the transfer of ihe title to
tlie site for tlie federal building.
There is no reason for believing that.
the member is not correct in what
he says in this regard. It is not
an uncommon thing for railway companies, as for governments, to hold
up one thing in the hope of securing concessions with regard to another. That is recognized as legitimate and there are no reflections to
be cast upon any company or any
corporation for making the best bar-
sain possible. It is safe to say that
the negotiations that are being conducted between the government and
the company are amicable.
II is unfortunate for the city that
there is this hold-up in that matter
in this time as there Is need for all
llic work that can be carried on in
the city by both Hie federal govern-
un tin     |iro\ Inclal    governmenl
and the railway company in order io
 ome the handicap that the city

i" move "i iiny greal extent for
reasons that are nut fur to trace and
which are well known to every citizen. Incompetency on Hie pari of
those entrusted with tlie management of affairs has made it essential
that the governments and the railway be looked to to help out tho
situation.
Any :Utempi to detract attention
from the exact source of our trouble
in this city at the present time will
fall because the citizens well know
where the main trouble lies. It will
be Impossible to detract from that
and try to attach blame from anyone else In a representative capacity.
On Mr. Clements, the citizens of
Prince Rupert can well rely, as he
has the ability to look well after
the   interests   of   the   city.     Would
"Everywhere I have encountered
the evidences of prosperity and contentment. There is abounding hap-
piness, ureal, virility, buoyant hope,
and abounding confidence, while the
people in Canada live and do not,
as too often in England, merely
exist.
"Tlie Dominion is appealing to
England to send its sons to join in

sons must be workers and not shirkers.    The gold  is  not  to be picked

, spirit, who will cast their insular
prejudices behind them, enter heartily into and adapt themselves to
Canadian   life,  and   labor   with   will
I and courage in their new home."
Such are the conclusions of L.
Scheff, an English Journalist, who is
making his second trans-Canadian
tour. Mr. Scheff spent most of last
year in Canada, returning lo England last autumn. The Dominion
has made a thorough convert of him,
however, and he is again setting
forth to cross the country, from
Halifax to Victoria, representing the
Glasgow Herald, Manchester Guardian, Sheffield Telegraph, and
Graphic. He expects to edit a special Canadian supplement of the latter paper, to be published shortly.
"I find the so-called Canadian prejudices against Englishmen perfect
nonsense," he said. "If Englishmen
adapt themselves to Canadian conditions there is everything in the world
for them here. Canada presents, to
my mind, the greatest opportunities
of any country on earth."
The next, examination for the entry of Naval Cadets will be held at
the examination centre of the Civil
Service Commission in November,
1912; parents or guardians of intending candidates should apply to
the Secretary, Civil Service Commission, Ottawa, for entry papers before
1st October next.
Candidates must he between the
ages of 14 and 16 on 1st October,
1913.
Cadets are trained for. appointment as Officers in the Naval Service, the course at the College being
two years, followed by one year in
a Training Cruiser, after which
Cadets are rated Midshipmen.

NEW BURNS POEM
Hitherto  Unpublished  Lines of the
Great  Poet  Brought  to
Light
It is seldom in these days, says
The Dundee Courier, that a hitherto
unpublished poem of the poet Burns
comes to light. But Mrs. John Mof-
fatt, St. Andrew's, is the happy possessor of one. The poem below was
copied by Mrs. Moffatt's grandfather,
j the late Edward Sanderson, wjell-
night  100  years ago,
The verses are prefaced with the
following words: "Composed by
Robert Burns, and presented to tho
nobleman addressed upon being
called up from the servants' hall
i where he had been sent to dine
along with them) to add lo the
entertainment of bis company, along
with which company he had been
asked to go on an excursion to the
Mass Rock, On presenting which he
put on his hat, turned, on his heel
and retired."
The verses were as follows:
My Lord, 1 would not fill your chair,
Tho' ye be proudest noble's heir.
I came this night to join your feast
As equal  of the best at least!
'This true that cash with me is scant,
And titles trifles that I want,
The King has never made me kneel
To stamp my manhood with his seal.
But what of that?  The King on high
Who took less pains with you than I,
lias filled my bosom and my mind
With something better in its kind
Than   your   broad   acres,  something
which
I cannot well translate to speech
But by Its Impulse I can know
"Pis deeds, not birth, that make men
low.
Your rank, my Lord, is but a loan!
Bul  mine, thank  Heaven, is all my
own
A peasant, 'tis my pride to be:
Look   round   and   round   your   ha]]
and  see
Who boasts a  higher pedigree!
I   was not   fit,  h. seems,  to dine
With   these  fox-hunting  heroes  flue.
But only came to bandy jests
Among     your     lordship's     hopeful

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
AN  AERIAL   FLEET
British Government is Taking Up the
Question of Aviation in a
Military Sense.
Some of the Latest Features in Connection  With This  Aspect of
■ the Popular Experiment
I 	
Aviation in the military sense is
being seriously taken up by the British government. It has been announced in Parliament by Winston
Churchill, first lord of the Admiralty, and Colonel Secly, parliamentary
secretary of war, that tlie British
army and navy is to be equipped
at the earliest possible moment with
a sufficiency of the human and mechanical instruments of aerial war-
ware to bring them up to and It is
hoped surpass the standard aimed
at by other great powers.
Experts declare that the scheme
set forth by Colonoy Seely is sound
in conception and well calculated to
attain the objects in view. Its chief
and obvious merit is that it treats
flying as a thing in itself and not
as a mere function of any existing
arm of defence.
Flying Is flying whether it Is done
by a soldier, a sailor or a mere civilian and the concentration under
one administration of the training
of all persons who are qualified and
prepared to serve the country in
time of war in any part of the world
should ensure the attainment of the
highest standard alike of theoretical
professional knowledge and of practical performance in the air.
With the abolition of the Air Battalion, the transitional makeshift of
the unimaginative British type, the
way is clear for the formation of
the National Air Service, to belong
to which a man may well be proud.
However meritorious may have been
the personnel of the Air Battalion,
part of which is to be absorbed into
the new body, the goverenment Is
to be congratulated on their recognition that an organization of that
kind Is altogether Inadequate to the
aerial requirements of the country.
Colonel Seely cleared up the meaning of a loose expression in Lord
Haldane's Memorandum, which was
published some weeks ago. The latter stated that at the proposed joint
Army and Navy School of Aviation
officers of both services "shall be
taught to fly before proceeding to
the separate Army and Navy establishments at which they will be ex-
erdsed in the more specialized requirements of their respective services." But Colonel Seely in his
speech made it quite clear that it
Is not proposed to use the central
school for teaching officers to fly.
'They would learn the elements of
the art elsewhere and go to the
flying school for the more advanced
jourse." It appears, then, thai all
ifficers and civilians who present
;hemselves n( the school for their
four months' course wi'l already be
■ertified airmen.
The training of non-commissioned
ifficers and men as well as officers is contemplated—an enlightened and very important innovation
—and it seems probable that these
nay actually be taught to fly at the
school. But otherwise the are of
'lying, pure and simply, will not
je taught at the central school any
nore than company drill Is taught
it the Staff College. What will be
aught at the central school will be
;he things which make the differ-
mce between the mere airman and
he military airman.
Much more than the ability to fly
s needed before a man can be count-
ci as a useful asset to a military or
taval commander. It is tlie selenitic, as opposed to the acrobatic,
Ide of the business which lias to
io developed—"progressive" flying,
ibservalion and photography from
.he air, meteorology, (lying by com-
iass, signalling, ami tlie like, as well
is mechanics ami the principles of
•oustruction—and in this the Bch ol
Vlll supply a training which will Le
nvaluable when, after the course,
he airman joins tlie military or na-
■U wing of the service at Nether-
ivon  or  Easlchiu'rli.
A feature of the experiment which
vill be watched with special Inler-
ist will be the placing together un-
ler one commandant of officers of
>oth the army and the navy, to say
lothlng ot the civilians, who, It may
ie noticed, will after their course
iass straight Into the reserve. While
it school all will be treated alike.
t is not unlikely that the natural rl-
alry of the two services will tend
o produce a spirit of emulation be-
wwn their representatives. Wheth-
•r this rivalry Is to prove healthful
o the corps or, as has sometimes
happened in other cases, a source of
rlction,  will depend  almost entire
ly on the personality of the commandant. The success of the whole
scheme, in fact, will turn largely on
the tact and inspiring example of
its chief administrators. In order
that there shall be no question of
jealousy between the services, there
seems no reason why the army and
navy should not take turns in supplying, at all events, the commandant. Th( chief of tlie French
school at Chalons is, or was very recently, a naval officer. The fact
that the British school is to train
all alike for sea as well as land service fall alike, for instance, will
be taught to recognize types of warships of all nations) is a strong
argument for interchangeabllity of
command. It is satisfactory to learn
that the commandant Is to have the
same general status as the chiefs of
the Staff College, the Royal Military Academy, and the Royal Military  College.
11 is not clear from the published
figures how much money is to be
s|)ent this year on actual aeroplanes.
Colonel Seely stated that the purchase of seventy-one had been sanctioned out of the 121 required to
complete the scheme. Whether as
many as seventy-one suitable machines will be procurable this year
seems doubtful. The obstacle is not
expense. Both Colonel Seely and
Mr. Churchill declared that the government was determined that money
should not stand in the way of any
necessary steps. It is the far great-
d'fficulty of getting delivery of maj
chines In which men can have confidence and which arc really suitable
for military purposes.
Very large deductions have to be
made from the figures of the machines belonging to the French and
German aviation brandies respectively in order to arrive at the efficient war strength. Thus, of the
2,008 French machines, it is believed
that barely 100 can be regarded as
fit to take the field for a hard campaign. The Germans, who started
'liter, have quite probably a higher
efficient proportion, though their total is veiled In deep obscurity. Considering, on the one hand, the national requirements as compared
with countries with enormous
armies and, on the other, the present early stage of the art of military
flying, the money allotted for the
British scheme seems likely to prove
adequate.

BUTTER SOLD BY YARD
III Cambridge Butter Is Sold by the
Yard, Neatly Wrapped in Cylindrical Bolls
There is at least one place in the
world, Cambridge, England, where
butter is sold, not by the pound,
but by the yard. From time immemorial the dairymen of Cambridgeshire have rolled their butter
into lengths, a length being a yard
and weighing one pound. Neatly
wrapped in strips of clean white
eloth, the cylindrical rolls of butter
are packed in long, narrow baskels
made for the purpose and so conveyed to market.
It follows, therefor, that the Cambridge butter dealers have no need,
as they preside over their stalls, of
weights or scales for determining
the quantity of their wares. Constant practice and an experienced
eye enable them with a strike of
the knife to divide the butter into
halves or quarters with almost mathematical precision.
This curiously shaped butter finds
its chief purchasers among the people of Cambridge University. It Is
claimed that the "yard butter" Is
eminently adapted for the peculiar
needs of the students In the daily
commons. Cut into conveniently
sized pieces and accompanied by a
loaf of wheaten bread, a stated portion Is sent every morning to the
rooms of the undergraduates for use
al  breakfast and tea.

IMPERIAL   FEELING
Sir
Gilbert Parker Expresses  Opinion
With Regard to United States
Policy.
"He Gives  Straight Talk  Respecting
tile Statements of Taft and
Roosevelt
The New York World publishes a
London cable quoting a statement
by Sir Gilbert Parker, as follows:
"I am not going to engage in a
discussion of American politics, but
since the President of the United
States in a letter declared his policy
toward Canada, in whose destiny I
am very deeply concerned, I feel
myself at liberty to say, as far as
all Imperialists are concerned, we
detest his secret intention, deliberately stated, even more than we detest his affirmed policy of commercial reciprocity. We, who know the
United States, were well aware since
the time of Mr. Blaine that commercial annexation leading to political
annexation was the policy which was
greatly desired in certain official as
well as unofficial quarters in America. I do not quarrel with their
desire or intention, but it is our business to see the desire or intention
shall   never   be   fulfilled.
"Champ Clark let the cat out of
the bag, and the bitter and painful
part of the whole business Is, you
have a Democatic candidate and two
Republican candidates for the Presidency, who have declared for the
absorbtlon of Canada. We are never
likely to be deluded again.
"Now, I want to say I don't believe the mass of the American people would, as they say, stand for the
kind of policy secretly exploited and
falsely stated by the head of the
American republic. To Colonel
Roosevelt, Mr. Taft said he meant
the absorbtlon of Canada. To the
people of the United States and the
people of Canada he said he meant
only  mutual   commercial  advantage.
"We British people want a square
deal, and if you caught us trying to
sneak Alaska from you by such a
game as P-esident Taft played, I
fancy the President would go to
Congress and ask for an appropriation, and you know what that means.
"Alaska is needed to complete
Canada's territorial position, but no
one in the British Empire' has ever
thought of trying to inveigle the
United States to par: with ler possession in Alaska eltn/er commercially  or  territorially.
"Let us have fair play. We want
no more than we are entitled to,
and no less.
"I say the letter written by President. Taft to Colonel Roosevelt, to
the policy of which both agreed, is
a blot on the high and honorable
traditions of American foreign
policy. Let the United States leave
our Imperial bonds, our constitu-
tionalities, alone. That's what I, in
common with fellow-Imperialists,
say. We mean to hold the British
Empire as it stands, every foot of
It. We mean to keep intact the
bond between our over-seas dominions and the United Kingdom. We
mean, just as powerfully as Americans ever meant, by patriotically
safeguarding our interests, to prevent our flag from being hauled
down in Canada or our commercial
position weakened by indirect means.
Thank heaven, the Canadian people
suspected  the game and kept faith.
"The President, ex-President, and
the Democratic candidate fprm the
presidency declared for the absorption of Canada. What do the Ameri-
can people think of it? I know
what we would think of the American people if they approved of the
President's, ex-Presidents, nnd Democratic candidate's desire and purpose, but l believe the vasl majority
of ihe American people nre today
ashamed of whal the Prestdenl did."
Aunlie i who Is housekeeping during mother's enforced absence)
New ynu see, children, I have made
you a pudding (murmurs of appro, nil, nnd llnn'e won't be any
trouble over getting you t,o take
medicine tonight, for I am nol going
to give you any. (Loud applause.)

NEW CEMENT COMPANY
Competitor of Cement Merger Arises
—Manager of Canada Company
Declares New Process Obsolete
A larger cement merger than ever
has  been  planned.     It  is  said  that
operations   will   be   extended   by   a
chain of plants stretching across the
country and  tha    the company  vill
have  a   eaptal   of   $10,000,000.    Sir
Sandford   Fleming   and   Mr.   Joseph
Irvine,   both   of   whom    have    been
prominent in cement affairs recently
in  connection  with merger  matters,
are  said   to  be  identified  with   the
company.
Mr. Frank D. Jones of the Canada Cement Company, is not a bit
worried over the new $10,000,000
cement plant to be established by
Ontario interests. He claims that
It will take two years for the new
company to get going, and by that
time his company will be so firmly
established that It will give all comers a good run for their money.
"In the past two years," he said,
"the Canada Cement Company has
spent a very large sum of money in
Improvements, extensions and renewals. We have practically rebuilt two
plants. We expect to spend more
money this year and again more next
year. By the end of this year our
actual capacity will be 10,000,000
barrels per year. It will take two
years for a new cement company to
get going."
"What is the consumption of cement in Canada?"
"The consumption of cement in
Canada is 6,300,000 barrels yearly."
"How about the new process the
proposed company is going to use?"
"They're welcome to it. We've
tried it In one of our Montreal plants
and  threw  it out."
In spite of the development of the
cement industry in Canada, however, Canada took from the United
States last year 153,000 barrels of
cement and contributed largely to
the remarkable increase of the production and exportation of cement by
the United States. Exports of cement from the United States increased from $163,000 in 1900, to
$4,348,000 in 1911. The United
States is apparently leading the
world in the production of cement
for industrial purposes. The latest
j figures available in the bureau of
! statistics with reference to produc-
! tion in Germany of about 30,000,000
I barrels, or considerably less t»ian
I half that of the United States, and.
| that of England, slightly less than
20 000,000 barrels. Of the 78,000,-
000 barrels produced in the United
States in 1910 a very large proportion is consumed at home, the exports for that year being but, about
2,500,000 barrels. Of the 78,000,-
000 barrels produced in the United
States in 1910 a very large proportion is consumed at home, the exports for that year being but about
2,500,000 barrels. The total consumption in the United States, according to the best available figures,
has grown from about 20,000,000
barrels in 1900, to 78,000,000 in
1910.
