PRISONERS  LABOR
Objection Raised to the Employment of
Those Who are Serving Sentences in Jail.
Situation   i:\pliriiiiil  by  the  Member
of the Police Commission at
Council Meeting
The local branch of the I. W. W.
wrote last evening to the city council protesting against the employment of a chain gang on the park in
the city. The letter intimated that
the organization would "not stand
for it," and challenged" the members of the council to defend it on
the platform.
Aid. Douglas moved that tbe council dispense with the chain gang.
The workingmen of the city strongly
objected to this.
Aid. Newton wanted to know who
was responsible for these prisoners
being thus employed. He had been
blamed for it, and wanted to set
himself right  in the matter.
Aid. Kirkpatrick explained that
there was no chain gang. The police
commissioners had sanctioned the
employment of some prisoners to
work on the park at Acropolis Hill.
He explained how this came about.
The chief of police reported to the
commissioners that there were a
number of men committed to jail for
short sentences whom the magistrate
assigned to hard labor. There was
not enough work about the lock-up
to keep them busy. It had been suggested that they be set to work
breaking stone. There was no stone
convenient and it was then suggested that these men might be taken
to the Acropolis Hill and employed
there In some work preparatory to
laying out a playground. This work
would not otherwise be done, as no
provision was made for it. This was
purely a matter for the police commissioners. It was deemed better
to have these men do some work like
this in the open air rather than keep
tbom shrp up in tbe lock-up. Authority had been given the police to employ guards to see that the prisoners
did not escape.
Aid. Douglas felt the council had
authority in the matter. He objected to the employment of these prisoners in competition with labor.
Aid. Kirkpatrick said that the instructions were to put these men at
no work where they would come into
competition with any other labor.
They were to be employed only to do
work that would not otherwise have
been done.
Aid. Clayton said that he represented the workingmen just as well
as Aid. Douglas. No one faction in
the city would run the city. He felt
like upholding the police commissioners. If men bad committed some
misdemeanor, while it might be lamented, yet they had to suffer the
penalty. Prom a humanitarian
standpoint these men were better
working there in the open air than
shut up In ajil.
He did not approve of the tone of
the letter. It was dictatorial and was
calculated to stir up friction. It
should not be couched in the language in which it was. He was in
accord with what the police commission had done.
Aid. Douglas contended that the
modem trend was in favor of letting
these prisoners work without guards.
His Worship said Aid. Kirkpatrick
had quite fully explained the situation. The police commissioners had
no desire to bring these prisoners
Into competition with ordinary labor.
It was desirable to have these men
given some kind of work and the
move made at the suggestion of the
chief of police seemed to be satisfactory. If there was any other way
In which these men could be better
employed,, the commissioners, he
felt, would be only too glad to acquiesce in the suggestions.
The matter thereupon dropped.
 o	
Good Investment
W. J. Alder and Mrs. Alder have
returned from Victoria after spending the summer there. Mr. Alder
came back more than ever impressed
with the opportunities of Prince Rupert. After studying the prices
asked in Victoria and Vancouver for
property he feels that Prince Rupert
is the safest place to Invest money.
Real estate, be regards as a safe
investment in the city. In the south
he found increasing inquiries for real
estate  in  Prince  Rupert.

Chinese Gambling
Police Magistrate Carss has the
evidence in the Chinese gambling
casese under consideration and will
give a decision in a few days. Fred
Peters, K. C, who prosecuted for the
city, in summing up for the prosecution yesterday, contended that it
was quite evident that there was an
infraction of the law. L. W. Patmore, for the defence, argued that
while these were certain articles used
in gambling in this case, no such
use was made of them. The Chinese
simply played  for amusement.
LAST FIGHT FOR
SPOILS OF OFFICE
Laurier Government is Attempting to Let Contracts Involving Many Millions of Dollars in the Interests
of Securing Campaign Funds for the
Party-Outcry Against
This Course.
Democracy
In a sermon preached by Rev. F.
\V. Kerr on Sunday night the
preacher alluded to what he considered some of the weaknesses of the
democratic system of government. He
advocated reforms in order to overcome the dangers from this system.
During the course of his sermon Rev.
Mr. Kerr made a reference to the
fact that under the democratic form
of government such as existed the
highest posts were open to any one.
In support of this principle he said
that a rail splitter might become
president of the United States, like
Abraham Lincoln, or a carpenter
might become an alderman, as had
Aid. Hilditch. Referring to objectionable features connected with
elections, the preacher said that the
great parties were not to blame for
this. He deprecated the action tit
hangers-on who were ready to join
either party.
 o	
METHODIST CHURCH
Contract is Awarded for Structure for
Local Congregation on Sixth
Avenue.
Work  Is to  He Proceeded  With ns
Quickly us Possible by the
Contractor
The Methodist Church in this city
has awarded a contract to E. Kaufman for the erection of the new
church the congregation has in sight.
It will be located on Fifth Avenue
and Musgrave Place and is from
plans prepared by G. Proctor.
The cost of the church will be
close to $15,0000 and it will be built
so that it may be enlarged without
great inconvenience.
Work has already commenced on
the excavations and the work of construction will be proceeded with just
as quickly as possible.
When completed, the edifice will
have quite a commanding appearance. A pipe organ has been secured
In Victoria, having been formerly
used in the Metropolitan Methodist
Church there, and this will be Installed here, adding materially to the
musical side of lhe church work.
There will be a splendid basemenl
with Sunday school rooms and young
men's parlors, ladies' parlors and
other necessities for an up-to-date
church building.
..A gymnasium will be added, probably at the rear, and be connected
with  the church  building.

Mr. Leeson of Vancouver, who is
interested in the Kyax sawmill, has
gone up to the property to Inspect it.

Sold to Indians
Several women of the restricted
district have had to pay fines for
supplying liquor to Indians. Five
of them paid $100 each and costs
on  this count.
Bishop   Du   Vernet   and   Mrs.   Du
Vernet have returned to the city.
(Special to The Journal)
Ottawa, Oct. 3.—The Laurier government will resign on Thursday, and
R. L. Borden will assume power at
once.
The government, on its deathbed,
is letting contracts for millions. One
is for the Quebec terminals of the
Transcontinental for $600,000; another is for 2,000 tons of steel rails;
also another for.millions for St. John
harbor.
The government Is attempting to
let all the contracts for which tenders have been received and money
voted.
There is said to be a special political reason for this in order to take
care of the campaign  contributions.
There   is   a   great   outcry   and   a
demand for action by the governor
general.
Locally, the effects are being felt,
for there has been marked activity
along certain lines to place contracts
with friends of the government during the past few days since the defeat of tbe Liberals.
Jealous employees of the late government have made themselves very
active in putting in large orders in
friendly  channels.
Contracts are sought to be placed
also along similar lines, all of which
will be subjected to investigation under tl'e new regime.
GOOSE BAY  POWER
Granby Company is Developing 4,000
Horse Power at its Property
in North.
W.   Yolen  Williams  Has  Completed
His Inspection of the Properties
in District
W. Yolen Williams is in the city
on his way south after his final visit
to Ooose Bay. Mr. Williams represents the Granby company, and in
that capacity has been covering the
whole of this northern territory, in
specting the mining districts and ascertaining just what the production
of these in a mining way is likely to
be. He has gone as far as Carcross,
and covered both Canadian and
Alaskan territory in his investigation.
After months of work, he is waiting for the Prince Rupert, by which
he will go south and report to his
principals.
At Goose Bay, Mr. Williams says
work is going along well. A dam
in connection with the power scheme
is being built and a pipe line five
feet in diameter will carry the water for a distance of one mile. The
p'pe will be brought in in sections
and put together on tbe ground. The
company will generate 4,000 horsepower to supply the mine, and the
smelter if it is erected at Goose Bay.
There are good prospects being developed, Mr. Williams says, in the
vicinity of Goose Bay, and he expects to see a very active camp there.
Later in October, after the meeting
of the Granby company Mr. Williams
expects officials of the company will
come north, when they will be In i.
position to announce what will be
done.

WANTS INFORMATION
Council  Ask  for  Report Relative
Bottle Licenses in the
City.
to
Work Will Proceed by Day Labor on
Grading Alleyway Between Sec
ond   and   Third   Avenue
The city council last evening occupied a very considerable part of its
time in the discussion by a few members of the question of bottle licences
in the city, a subject outside the
jurisdiction of the council. The subject v.--;] introduced by Aid. Clayton,
who wished to have a return brought
down showing the condition of the
petitions in the application of George
Sutherland and in the applications
granted.
Aid. Clayton wanted this information, he said, so that he might speak
intelligently on the subject. He was
inclined to think that in view of the
state of the application of Mr. Sutherland he would have acted as the
commissioners did.
Aid. Newton aired his views on
the subject, these being the same as
he  had  already  made  public.
Aid.   Douglas   corroborated.
His Worship, while he admitted
that the licence commissioners alone
were responsible, had no objections
to the whole of the records that were
before the commissioners being laid
before the council.
It was finally decided to request
the city solicitor to prepare a report
on these applications.
Mr. Peters said he would have to
get the consent of the commissioners
before taking this course, and the
mayor, on behalf of the commissioners, at once gave permission to bring
down everything.
On the report of the public works
committee, the salary of the superintendent of public works was increased
from $160 to $200 a month, commencing October 1.
It was decided, on the recommendation of the light committee, to advertise for an electrical engineer to
take charge of tlie additional plain
ni the electric light, station. The idea
:: in ensure the work being carried
nut in a thoroughly satisfactory way,
the public being assured thai the
money is being wisely expended.
There was no petition against, the
carrying out of the work of grading
the alleyway between Second and
Third Avenues from Fourth in Ninth
Street.
it was decided to proceed with the
work by day labor.
John Brodie applied for the position of engineer of the pumping station at Morse Creek.
The letter was filed.

• Hy In Interesting anyone In them,
The city assessor J. C. McLennan,
is now busy receiving real estate
taxes, which are now due and payable
at his office.
There appears to ue a determination to pay early and secure the rebate of one-sixth on tire general rate,
as already a large number have paid
up,
On tne tax bills an nem of .8 mills
appears for electric lighting. A misapprehension seems to exist in the
minds of some people as to what this
is for, some think It s for payment
of light wliich they are not receiving.
The Item Is for special rates under
tne electric light loan of $66,000,
which the people voted on last year,
and is to provide interest and sinking fund and has nothing whatever
to do with payment for light supplied
for domestic use.
When the Improvements now arranged for have been made to the
electric light plant every person iu
the city will be able to secure light
if they desire, and In anticipation of
the same, applications for light
-ihoulu be made to the manager of
the electric light plant at the telephone exchange, 'lhird Avenue, when
connections will be made as early
as possible.

Make   Believe  Hud   Man
Alex. Johnston, who has been making himself rather conspicuous by the
display of considerable money and
who has been drinking freely,-is held
In custody on a charge of using
threatening language. Johnston was
called in the police court yesterday
but, was remanded for two days. He
is alleged to have claimed the honor
of being implicated in the bank robbery at New Westminster, but his
boasts in that respect are believed to
have been idle and to have followed

Alaskan   Pack
Estimating the total at not less
than 2,800,000 cases, managers of
Alaskan fishing companies have declared that this season's Alaskan salmon pack will be the largest in the
history of the fishing industry. If
the estimate is correct, it will be
4011,000 cases more than were packed last year and 17">,000 cases more
than were packed in 1908, up to this
year the best season known in the
salmon business. Packers this year
asked $1 more for reds and 80 cents
more for pink salmon than last season. Tbe Alaska pack of canned
salmon will lie worth at least $12,-

many other reasons.

City—NEW HAZELTON.
NEW HAZELTON  is  out  of  the
damp belt, and many people who
spend 'he whole year in the district
say the winters are not severe—
plenty of sunshine and dry air.
Taken from Officla Bulletin, B<C,
No. 22, Page 23: —
"On the t'pper Skeena, about a
distance Of 5u miles, there are large
tracts of land on both sides of the
river, which, as far as soil and climatic conditions are concerned, I
would consider ideal for successful
growing of fruit as well as for other
branches of agriculture. Potatoes,
and all garden produce, grow to perfection."
HAVE VOL* COM'] PENCE OF
MERCHANTS ON THE GROUND?
M.rny Lots already purchased by
the keenest business men I Hazel-
Ion (Old Town). You can safely
follow the judgment of such men.
NEW HAZELTON should be tbe
centre of a busy population of thou-
: iinds within a year. Why not? During the past year there was r.n average of over two new towns created
in the Canadian West every week.
We are all here to share in this
mosl ' nderful prosperity . We offer

In prog: ess of the best town for
Investment on the line of thi Grand
Trunk  Pacific.
NEW HAZELTON Railroads Open
Neiv Country.
Railroads   have   been   the   grj:.
feature   in   the   growth   of   Western
Canada.
NEW HAZELTON, located on the
Grand    Trunk    Pacific   Railroad    is
attracting the attention of the whole
world, as all important towns do on
the main line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railroad.
Stores are going up. Newspaper
plant now moving on the Townsite.
Two or three General Merchandise
Stores, Drug Store t Bank, Restaurants, and in fact many lines of trade
are now arranging to open in NEW
HAZELTON, Section One. Activity is
in that part of the Townsite known
as Section One.
The story of NEW HAZELTON is
well known to the public. It is a
Townsite being offered to the public
by successful business men. There is
positively no Railroad Company or
Townsite Promoter financially interested in the land. Tne owners have
undertaken to make NEW HAZELTON a city of importance in British
Columbia. NEW HAZELTON promises to be the most profitable city
to the Grand Trunk Pacific along its
main lines.
Offices of Foley, Welch & Stewart,
contractors building the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railroad, will be located in
NEW HAZELTON. The Chief Clerk,
Paymaster and Purchasing Agent are
preparing to, and will, build homes
in NEW HAZELTON, Section One.
NEW HAZELTON, the hub of the
Hazelton District, will be the natural
headquarters for what promises to
be the most active and sensational
new* city in the fastest growing part
of the world today on account of
the wonderful Lead, and Zinc Mines,
the Groundhog Mountain Coal Fields,
the Vast Agricultural Country tributary to the coming principal city in
Britisii Columbia on the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railroad.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad
is now running regular trains over
100 miles out of Prince Rupert. The
G. T. P. Officials, and also the
G. T. P. Contractors, say that the
Railroad should be running to Mile
164 this winter, and will reach NEW
HAZELTON next summer. Grading
Is now under way as far along the
line as 30 miles east of NEW HAZELTON. The grading is about finished from Prince Itupert to NEW
HAZELTON. Many mines are getting ready to ship ore. Some of the
mines being developed are:—Silver

money on the business judgment of
the most successful men in Ilritish
Columbia.
NEW HAZELTON Townsite bad over
a Quarter of a Million Dollars Invested by a few Business Men before
the Lots wore offered for sale. NEW
HAZELTON is a Business Man's
Townsite. All the G. T. P. and Local
History was carefully considered.
The Engineer's Reports as lo grades,
opportunities for Side Tracks necessary to handle the thousands of
freight cars were examined. Then
they invested in NEW HAZELTON.
They paid in Cash for NEW HAZEL
TON  and   nearby  Lands  over  Two
Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars.
Thnt is a wonderful sonnet written
hy John J. Ingalls on the subject of
Opportunity, hut the real fact is,
Opportunity does not knock once on
each man's door. Opportunity plays
a continual anvil on every man's portals—but, of course, if he is knocking nt the time he will not hear
Opportunity when she knocks.

JUST ONE NEW HAZELTON
THE SPOKANE OF CANADA
All Interests Combine to IJoost the
New Town—Campaign Has Started—Natural Resources Guarantee a Rig Population—Contractors' Headquarters.
The New Hazelton campaign has
started. For the next few months
the very best efforts of some of the
greatest advertising men and real
estate firms in British Columbia will
be devoted to Boosting New Hazelton. The different interests have
combined to make this town one of
the foremost in the province. A careful study has been made by experts
and they are all agreed that there
cannot be too much boosting. The
natural resources are bere and they
are now being developed in a way
heretofore unknown. Everything is
now on the move. Mining has this
week had a stimulation that was not
dreamed of. During the two previous
weeks several big deals were put
through which meant the bringing in
of mining men known the world
over. Agriculture has been very successful this year and the farmers
have had bigger crops than ever.
They are all getting on their feet
and buying machinery as fast as it
can   be   brought   into   the   country.
This week Charles S. Meek, president of Standard Securities, Ltd.,
Vancouver was In town and completed  arrangements with  the sur-
$10 Down

property. This work has already
been started and it will be finished
in another ten days.

Land Co.'s property that so many
of the old Hazelton business men
have purchased lots and are prepared
to build, many this fall. It is from
this point that the business section
will start and grow, and where high
values will prevail.
There    will    be    the    one    town
instead of several as might have
been. This means a great deal; in
fact, many hundreds of dollars to
the people of the old town, who have
been wondering where the town
would be. From now on New
Hazelton will he introduced to the
world in a manner that no other
town  can  equal
The gentlemen associaH-w in the
homing of this New Townsite they
now call NEW HAZELTON, paid out
in actual cash before a lot was sold
Over a Quarter of a Million Dollars.
NEW HAZELTON
Where the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railroad has Sixty Acres of right-of-
way and track grounds.
NEW HAZELTON is reported by
Engineers to be the only available
spot In the Skeena or Bulkley Valleys
for many miles each way where it
would be possible to have Railroad
Yards large enough to handle the
Hazelton District's business.
NEW HAZELTON affords a long,
nearly level stretch of land suitable
for Immense Yards, which will be
required to handle the thousands of
cars of ore and coal that will be
shipped from the mines in the
Hazelton District.
TheG.T.P.
Capital of Grand Trunk Railway
and the Grand Trunk Railway Systems, $417,808,0152.
Over 50,000 Stockholders, G. T.
and G. T. P. Millions of people boost
for Grand Trunk Pacific Townsites.
Maximum grade of G. T. P. is 21
feet to the mile, one-fifth of any
oilier Trancontinental Railroad in
Canada or the United States.
NEW HAZELTON is the Town
that everybody is talking about, and
there are no two opinions as to its
opportunities for Investments. The
reason is obvious.
NEW HAZELTON Is Situated near
the junction of the Skeena and
Bulkley Valleys.
The Northern Interior Land Co.
Ltd., paid cash for and own (Section One) NEW HAZELTON TOWN-
SITE and guarantee to deliver to
purchasers of lots an Indefeasible
Title upon receipt of final payment.

CEMENT GUNS
The cent gun is an invention designed to do away with the whitewash and kalsomine brush, the cement and plaster trowel, and a few-
other things of a similar nature, says
the Technical World Magazine. It
is the very latest method of applying coatings of cement, lime and gypsum and other plastic materials to
structures in need of repair and of
putting up the original walls of such
structures entire, if need be. in
other words, the cement coated or
concrete house for the future seems
to be literally "shot" from a gun.
The idea of shooting a house, not
to pieces, but together, may sound
absurd, but it is well to remember
that this is an age of scientific miracles, which come almost as fast and
as thick as the flowers that spring
up from an April shower, and we
really should not be surprised at anything that happens.
There would seem to be an almost
unlimited field for the practical use
of the cement gun; foundation work
and water proofing below grade
should be well adapted to this process. As a means of coating steel to
prevent rust and corrision it should
prove superior to the ordinary method of painting, for a cement coat will
wear much better than one of paint.
Lining the Aqueduct
The pipe line of the New York
aqueduct from the Catskill Mountains is now being lined with a two-
inch coating of cement and sand in
this manner. The inside diameter
of the pipe is eight feet, eleven
inches, so that a man can easily walk
through it and perform the spraying
process. Smaller pipes can be similarly treated in sections.
Suppose you have old and crumbling walls, fences, sidewalks or
leaky roofs that need repairing, or
a wooden building that you want
made fireproof in anticipation of a
visit from the fire insurance examiner. There will be no need of having onen's premises littered up for
a week or more with a lot of mortar,
boards 'and mixers, scaffolding and
similar eyesores, as in times past.
You simply send out a hurry-up call
for the cement gun man, who conies
around with his little revolver, and—
presto! everything is made spick and
span "while you wait." It is something like sending one's clothes to
the cleaner, only In this case the
cleaner comes to you.
Useful  in  Tree  Surgery
Tree surgery is another thing that
seems destined to undergo a revolution if all that is claimed for the
cement gun proves proactical. There
are hundreds of torn, cacked and decaying trees in private yards, in the
streets and in the public parks of
every city that could have their years
of usefulness and ornament doubled
if they were given proper attention.
The trouble is that it doesn't pay to
go round and patch them up with
hand made cement or plaster, as it
may be termed. Besides, this is an
instance where in it is necessary that
the plastic product should be applied
with the least possible delay after
mixing on account of its subsequent
constant exposure to the elements.
With the cement gun this work can
be done so quickly and cheaply that
its use in this connection should become very general.

Fewer persons that ever, in proportion to the population, are getting
married in England and Wales. In
his quarterly return the registrar-
general states that in the first three
months of the year the marriage of
89,500 persons was registered, being
equal to an annual rate of 10.0 persons married per 1,000 of the estimated population, being an average
rate of 11.4 per 1,000 in the first
quarter of the ten years, 1901-10.
Of counties with populations exceeding 100,000, Buckinghamshire,
with 7.2, had the lowest rate, and
Northumberland, with 11.8, the highest.    London's rate was 11.5.
The births dealt with in the report
are those for the second quarter of
the year. They numbered 225,777,
and were in the proportion of 25.0
annually per 1,000 of the population.
This is 3.0 per 1,000 below the
mean birth rate in the ten proceeding second quarters, and, in the
words of the reporl, which are becoming stereotyped, "it Is the lowest
birth rate recorded in any second
quarter since the establishment of
c'vll registration." Sussex has the
lowest birth rate, 18.G, and Durham
the highest, 32.29.
The death rate was 1.3 per 1,000
below the mean rate In the ten preceding second quarters. The natural increase of population last quarter by excess of births over deaths
was 105,793, against 122,782, 111,-

THE  CARPENTER'S  PLAO,
in a sermon preached by Rev.
P, W. Kerr on Sunday night reference was made to one of the aldermen of the city. This alderman was
specifically named by the preacher
and while Mr. Kerr repudiates the
construction put upon his remarks by
a paper in the city that in season
and out of season never fails to endeavor to belittle Aid. Hilditch in
the eyes of the public, yet we question very much the propriety of the
clergyman m saying even what he
did concerning an alderman and the
calling he may follow. This is a
free country, however, and Mr. Ken-
must be his own judge as to what he
wishes to say in the pulpit.
Mr, Kerr's remarks, It would appear, were intended to show that the
highest positions in a representative
way were open to anyone under democratic government. Two instances
were used, that of the rail splitter,
Abraham Lincoln, who became president of the United States, and the
carpenter, John Hilditch, who became an alderman in Prince Rupert.
Mr. Kerr says he never for an instant had in view conveying any impression that would be disparaging
to Alderman Hilditch. We accept
his statement and lament the fact
that his words have been twisted to
convey a different meaning.
But on tlie broader principle the
day is passing where certain callings
must claim to be the only ones within the folds of which all the brains of
the nations are contained. A college
education, much as it is to be prized,
does not alone fit men to serve In
representative capacities. Because a
man is a lawyer, or a carpenter, or
a preacher, or a blacksmith, or a
doctor, or any of the many other
callings in which men earn their
livelihood, is not sufficient reason
for classifying him as qualified to
act in a representative capacity. In
all these lines of business are to be
found the most narrow minded men.
In all of them are broad minded and
well educated men. The education
of the college is to be sought but it
does not in itself constitute a liberal
education. Everyday life is a good
schoolmaster and many who cannot
boast the training of the colleges are
nevertheless well trained.
We do not believe in electing men
as representatives because they are
lawyers or carpenters or tlie members of any guild. We believe the
idea of selecting labor men or business men as distinct from each other
is wrong in principle, .he representatives of the people should be
chosen because of their fitness for
the office anil their ability to serve
all classes instead of as the representatives of any one particular class in
the community.
Before that time there has to be
preparations made for this in the
way of increased docking facilities
and elevators. This work will require
years to accomplish, so that there
may be expected to be a start made
on  this  work  before  long.
The vast enterprises that the
G. T. P. has in view at this port are
sufficient to warran t a veritable
boom in a place of hundreds of thousands of population. In a city only
in its infancy the importance is proportionately greater. There are few
who fully realize what the development means in this city or the population would be increasing at a rate
that it would be impossible to keep
pace with it In tlie matter of civic
Improvements.
Some of these days the outside
world, the investing public, is going
to awaken to the immense opportunities here and then this city will have
an era of prosperity that no other
city has ever seen in the history of
the world. The best meature of it
all is the fact that the development
of this place is founded upon real
worth. It is lasting and the trade to
be opened is dependent upon no fit-
lull or single industry. Prince Rupert is to be a city with a very wide
variety of industries tributary to  it.
PANAMA   CANAL  TRADE
P.   AMI  TRAD!
Thai the directors of the G. T. P.
are keenly alive to the possibilities
of the trade to follow the opening
ol the Panama Canal is evidenced by
the announced intention of that company to being at once preparations
for handling the wheat of the prairies tnrough this port.
President Hays, speaking of the
possibilities of the trade, says:
"We will bt- able to deliver wheal
In Liverpool by way of the Panama
Canal at the same cost and almost in
the same time that it now takes lo
carry it by way of the Great Lakes
and Atlantic ports. I venture to predict thai within the next decade as
much Canadian grain from Manitoba.
Saskatchewan and Alberta will find
its way to Europe by way of Prince
Rupert as will get out by the Atlantic
ports."
There is little doubt that President
Hays Is correct in his estimate. No
either port on the Pacific has the
same opportunities for securing the
tiade that Prince Rupert has. The
easy grades along the line of the
(i. T. P. from the wheat fields to
this port gives Prince Rupert an advantage not easily overcome by any
other shipping point. The harbor
facilities are unexcelled also and the
opportunities exist for installing up-
to-date equipment for handling the
trade.
By the year 1915, Mr. Hays expects to have the facilities ready for
this port taking care of its share of
the   grain   trade   from   the   prairies.
Lord Charles Beresford, speaking
in Victoria before the Canadian Club
of that place, gave expression to his
views with respect to trade on the
Canadian Pacific Coast when the
Panama Canal is completed that ap
ply quite as well to Prince Rupert
as to Victoria. If Victoria is to
profit by the creation of that new-
trade route, Prince Rupert has still
greater prospects along that same
line. The words of Lord Charles
Beresford relative to that point are
contained in the following quotation
from  his speech:
"Now, when I speak of these trade
routes, the trade, the water borne
commodities, will come from the east,
and they will come from Canada.
Where else are they coming from?
You have not developed your resources, you have not scratched this
country yet, you barely have commenced to scratch it for what is going
to come. Now, when you do get this
great trade route, which will be of
food stuffs and other commodities
from yourself, and silks and other
commodities from China, ao have a
harbor where they can run into properly protected with all the munitions
of war, in the event of a war ever
coming upon us (hear, hear). So
sure as you have those ports, so sure
as any nation is properly organized
for war, so surely will it be, as near
as can be conjectured, that we shall
maintain the peace. When you are
not ready, people do fight; and I
like to be ready (applause). I like
to be ready for all contingencies;
then you can sit and smile when that
happens. And if you are ready you
can simply say to whoever has insulted you or wishes to fight: "It is
a pity you did this; I am so ready
that I intend to pulverize you during
the next week" (laughter and applause). Remember that Vancouver
Island itself has all the requisites for
making those great commercial harbors and the naval base. It has ore,
it has coal, it has limestone, and it
has timber at your very doors. So
that you are extremely lucky at not
having to get all these things from
other countries when you make preparations, as I have no doubt you
will. If I had money—and 1 may
say 1 have never met an Irish landlord thai ever had—but if I eiail
money I would certainly Invest it In
a lurrying power, so as to be ready
directly Hint tlie Panama Canal is
open, to see that you have control of
the trade routes. If the ships are
there you will gel plenty of cargoes
from them. And the first country
thai builds the ships and lias them
ready will derive the greatest advantage, and take actual control of
the great trade thai is bound to
come when the canal is opened
I bear, bear)."

SUBSTANTIAL  DAMAGES
VANCOUVER—A verdict for
$9,000 damages in the action
brought by Peter Collins against the
Britannia Mining and Smelting Co.
for injuries received in an explosion
that occurred in a tunnel in which
the plaintiff was working last October at Britannia Beach, resulting in
the loss of his eyesight and a finger
and thumb on his right hand. The
cause of the accident was the explosion of a "missed hole" near the
place wliere Collins was working.
Some difference of opinion existed
between the plaintiff and the defence
as to the exact cause of the explosion, and considerable argument was
indulged in by the opposing counsel
during the hearing of the action. In
his charge to the jury, Air. Justice
Morrison stated that the question of
negligence was a very diffcult one
to deal with. He defined this charge
and also the one of contributory negligence, which the defence alleged
the plaintiff was guilty of. "An employer is not an insurer of his employees," said his lordship, "but he
must adopt reasonable precautions
precautions which will ensure the
safety of his employees. You must
also remember an employee Is not
an inspector of his employer's plant.
It is for you to say whether the proper amount of precaution was taken
to ensure the safety of its employee."
S. S. Taylor, K. C, appeared for the
plaintiff, and E. P. Davis, K. C, for
tbe defence.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
INCREASED FLEET
G. T. P. it is Reported Will Materially
Add to Vessels on This
Coast.
Three Coasting Steamers, It Is Said,
Will   Ue   Built  This   Winter
for the Company
According to the information obtained in the southern Coast cities
the G. T. P. is to enter upon a still
more active career in the matter of
coast shipping. The Prince Rupert
and the Prince George, the two fastest steamers running north to this
port, are found inadequate to meet
the trade that is to follow in the
next year or two. Accordingly these
two steamers are to be supplemented
by tliree additional steamers of a
larger type.
According to Seattle papers the
service to this port is to be improved,
while the inter-city trade among the
ports of Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria is to be looked after, probably
by supplying a daily service.
This move on the part of the company indicates that the coming summer is to be a most lively one.
Under present arrangements with
the C. P. ft. provided with a daily
service among the southern cities the
'opportunities for securing trade in
that service are superior to those
possessed by the G. T. P. with only
a twice a week service. In the plans
said to be in view by the G. T. P.
are carried out, two palatial steamers
would probably be put on the Seattle-
Victoria-Vancouver run, with a daily
service. The third steamer would
run to Prince Rupert with the Prince
Rupert and the Prince George, giving three steamers a week. By this
arrangement better opportunities to
secure northern trade would be provided.
The Post-Intelligencer of Seattle
says, referring to the rumored introduction of three twin-screw turbine
steamers, that they will be larger
than the Prince Rupert, and will be
built in England this winter. The
paper says:
"The Grand Trunk Pacific British
coast fleet will be rearranged for
more frequent sailings between this
port and the north, and the triangular run will be provided .'or with
daily sailings. The new vt. -.els are
to be oil burners. Captain i.arney
Johnson of the Pacific Coast fleet is
to be sent to England this winter to
superintend the construction of the
three new vessels.
"Each in turn, the Prince Rupert
and Prince George, are to be converted from coal to oil burners at
once."
The appearance of the G. T. P.
liners Prince Rupert and Prince
George is to be altered considerably
as a result of the conversion to oil
burners. The changes are to be made
in the length of the funnels. These
will be cut down twenty-four feet.
Alterations involving an expenditure
of $50,000 will be made on the two
Prince steamers as soon as they are
overhauled this winter.
Captain C. M. Nicholson, manager
of the Coast service of the company,
has left for San Francisco, where he
will arrange for the purchase of fuel
oil to be used in the operation of
the two vessels. Officials of the company says that, there will be no need
of the long funnels, which produce
the great draft for tbe coal burning
engines, after the vessels are converted Into oil burners. The change
will also result in a reduction of
twelve men in the crews of the Prince
George and Prince Rupert.
Bids for the work on the two vessels will be requested In a few days.
KESTREL CONDEMNED
The fishery protection cruiser Kestrel, which has been lying at Esquimau for the past few months, is
reported to have been condemned and
will probably never go to sea again.
The Kestrel, which was built in 1903
at a Vancouver shipyard at a cost
of .1165,000, was used in the fishery
protection service in northern waters.
It was never considered suitable for
the work intended. She was brought
to Esquimalt in July last and a survey was held, as a result of which
the hull is said to have been condemned.
RUPERT CITY'S CLASS
With hull barnacled after lying
idle at the North Vancouver ballast
grounds for nine months, the former
Mackenzie and G. T. P. steamer Rupert City is under orders to shift
her moorings for the purpose of reclassification, says the World. The
former Prince Rupert freighter will
shift tomorrow from her position in
the stream to the Johnson dock for
this  purpose.
Under    shipping    regulations    all
steamers have to be reclassed every
four years.
The Rupert City made her last
voyage last December with a cargo
of coal to Unalaska, and was formerly operated by the Mackenzie
Steamship Company in the passenger
trade between Vancouver and Prince
Rupert. Her passenger accommodation was later dismantled and the
vessel was chartered by the G. T. G.
company and operated for several
months in the freight trade north.
She Is owned by Messrs. A. Watts
& Co. of London and she has been
open for charter since being released
by the Grand Trunk Pacific Company.
SANDHEADS   LlGHTHOfSK
The Sandsheads lighthouse, which
has- been a prominent figure off the
Fraser River since 1884, and which
has been dark for the past few years,
since the establishment of the Sand-
heads lightship, has been ordered removed by the marine and fisheries
department. The lighthouse was
built on iron piles and frame. The
lightkeeper removed some years ago
and the lighthouse has been vacant,
practically abandoned for some
years. The lighthouse and piling will
be taken down and brought to Victoria to be placed in the stores of
the department, and may be re-erected at Rose Spit, off Rose Harbor,
where the Canadian Northern Pacific
Fisheries, Ltd., has a whaling station
at the south end of the Queen Charlottes.

AT GOOSE RAY
Red Wing Group Will lie Tested at
Depth  by  Pacific Metals
Company
J. L. Parker of the Pacific Metals
Company has been in this vicinity
for several days past. He visited
Goose Bay last week and started a
diamond drill at work on the Red
iv ing group. The surface outcrop
had been opened for a considerable
distance and showed eleven feet of
a shipping grade of ore. It is the
company's intention to test the same
at deapth  with  a  diamond  drill.
THE GRANBY  HOLDINGS
Good Progress Is Reported From the
Hidden Creek
Mines
Good progress is being made on
the Hidden Creek, owned by the
Granby Consolidated Milling & Smelting Co. here, and men are being added daily to the force until there is
now fully 150 men on the payroll.
It is stater that there has been
proved to exist some 2,000,000 tons,
the ore bodies extending to sea level,
or 1,200 feet below the outcrop. The
plans for smelting tlie Hidden Creek
ores have not been decided on as
yet. The ore may be shipped to the
Tyee Copper Company' smelter at
Ladysmith, or some other coast
smelter for the present. When the
smelter is built it Is proposed to have
. o a capacity of 2,000 tons a day,
handling customs ores as well, and
Including a lead stock for the silver-
lead ores of Portland Canal and Hazelton.
A power plant is being installed to
develop 3,500 horsepower under a
head of 350 feet, and a light ing plant
is being installed. The right-of-way
from the mine to the bunkers, a mile
in length, has been cleared, and the
site is being prepared for the docks
and bunkers. The wharf will be 400
feet in length, and the ore bunkers
will have a capacity of 6,000 tons.
Bunkers of 4,000 tons capacity will
also be erected at the mine. Recent
development and sahipling on the
Cabin Bluff ore body give values of
6 per cent copper for a width of
125 feet. Diamond drilling shows
ore in this shoot for an uninterrupted depth of 125 feet, while cores
from bore-holes put down to a depth
of 1,200 feet show 3 per cent copper
at that depth. The tunnel through
tne Cabin Bluff has been extended
to the Mammoth Bluff, the largest
ore body on the property, and sampling of which indicates values from
3   to   4   per   cent   copper.
SPORTS

Cup this season, madj big money.
The club did not have to pay for
grounds and the players divided practically all the receipts. Johnny Howard was working on a guarantee of
$1,250, and he received $250 additional for the extra two games. The
ether players each drew down $1,250.
Ernie Murray, the Vancouver player
with the Royals, received a guarantee of $700.
RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP
Rugby teams representing British
Columbia and Manitoba Rugby Associations meet in Vancouver in December next in a series of matches for
the Rugby football championship of
Canada. The matter came up at a
meeting of the Vancouver Rugby Union in the form of a communication
from the Manitoba Association and
was favorably considered by the local
officials. If the necessary financial
arrangements can be made the series
will be played at Brockton Point
early in December.
CHESBRO HAS PASSED
Once in a great while when some
pitcher gets away with a game,
through the use of the "spit" ball,
one old-timer asks another old-timer,
"Whatever became of Jack Cresbro,
the former Pittsburg and New York
twirier, after be quit the big
leagues?"
"Lemme see," says the other, and
they both go over all the dope on
hand.
In Whitinsville, Mass., some of
Chesbro's old team mates were
forced to stick around on account of
some delay in the railroad scnedule
some time ago. They followed a
thin stream of farmers and townsfolk to the Whitinsville baseball
park. As they seated themselves in
the ram-shackle grand stand, they
saw a familiar figure come out from
behind the player's bench. He walked to the pitcher's box, turned round
and faced the hundred spectators. It
was Chesbro. No one applauded.
There wasn't an echo of the yells
that used to make the grand stand
in New York tremble when Chesbro
went in to pitch for tne Highlanders.
One local fan said: "It's Chesbro
pitching." "Yep," said another, "I
guess we'll lose this here game like
the rest."
Chesbro was one of the original
masters of the "spit" ball. He was
at the height of his fame when he
pitched in the final game between
Boston and New Yoric for the American League championship In 1903.
The game was to decide the title.
Chesbro let go a wild pitch. Boston scored and won the game and
the American League championship
of   1903.
After that Jack Chesbro gradually
went to pieces. His arm failed him.
He couldn't control the ball. In a
short time the fans were brought to
a realization that their idol had taken
a tumble and wouldn't be able to
climb back. Jack Chesbro was released   and   he   disappeared.
Chesbro is now struggling for a
berth on some of the eastern bush
teams. The small team managers
are wise. They know that any half
capable batter can lay up against any
of Chesbro's "spit" balls, shoots and
curves for a hit nine times out of
ten.

to state that the other league directors have already informed Joe Colin
of their intention to drop the Inland
Empire from the circuit. This may
be right, and then again there is a
possibility that the Spokane folks
are going it a litt'e stronger than the
situation warrants, but one point is
quite clear, the California magnates
are looking for the expansion of the
Coast League, and it may be that
they will decide to take in the Northwestern cities in 1912. If this is the
case, Vancouver and Seattle will
probably be the choice.
J. L. PARKER
Vancouver and Seattle for an all-
Coast League in 1912 is the talk now-
going the rounds In official circles
down In California, where the Pacific
Coast League moguls transact their
business, The proposition looks so
guild lhat a party oi directors of the
Coast League will visit Scattlp and
Vancouver on their way east to talk
over the situation with the Northwestern club magnates. The party
Will Include Cal Ewing of the San
Francisco club, Henry Berry uf Los
Angeles and Judge W. W. McCreedie,
owner of the Portland clubs in the
Coast and Northwestern Leagues. The
trio are going to the world's series,
going east from Vancouver over tho
C. P. R., but they will spend a couple
of days iu Seattle and Vancouver to
look over that territory. And this
practically means that thprv n*ay be
sonetiiing stirring in an all-Coast
League proposition before the 1912
season   comes  around.
Spokane reports state that there ia
a chance that the Inland Empire will
lose its franchise In the Northwestern League because of the failure of
Joe Colin, owner of the Spokane club,
to provide suitable grounds. They
have got It down so fine over there
that they have figured out that Spokane will be dropped by the league
"lor business ireaBons" unless the
present owners of the club secure a
new  park.    They even  go so  far as
HOPE  IS  SAM  LANGFORD
Slowly the impression is gaining
that there is no such thing as a
"white hope." The only hope left
to those who are disgusted with
Johnson's personality and his highhanded way of insulting the proprieties and decencies at every opportunity by his vulgar self-advertising
is a "black hope," in the person of
Sam Langford, the tar baby from
rioston, says an American writer. All
these so-called "white hopes" prove
just as docile and unfit to be branded as "hopes" when they stack
against Langford as they would if
they were to meet Johnson. True,
there are many who have drawn
with Langford In ten-round bouts,
but that was only because Sam has
a sense of humor and wanted to give
the crowd a run for its money, besides having a desire not to deplete
the available opponents In too great
a hurry. Langford is the next best
man to Johnson. There is none to
dispute that. He is younger hy several years ana it's a certainty that
Johnson isn't going to be invincible
much longer. Right now, Johnson
would want nine months or a year
to get ready for an opponent as
tough as Langford and it isn't any
i-inc-h that Langford wouldn't heat
him, at that. The Bostonese black
has no really vicious habits, lives
frugally and carefully, and his ambition Is pointed toward getting
Johnson in a ring. He Is clever and
can hit like a mule kicking. His
stature would prove an advantage
instead of a handicap, tor Johnson
would find him harder lo hit, and
his ruinous uppercut, his most deadly
blow, would be lost to him, Looking far ahead and away bark, no
one appears on the pugilistic horizon
capable of giving Johnson half as
good a battle as Langford, and if the
match were made right now, there
would be plenty to wager on Sam.
 o	
The latest mixed metaphor conies
from France and is worthy of being placed on record. The occasion
of it was a dock strike at Rochefort,
the dockers being filled with Indignation because the authorities refused them a fortnight's holiday on full
pay, and this Is two their spokesman rendered the ancient sentiment
that worms will turn: "Even the feeble sheep," he exclaimed, "When the
fierce blasts of indignation makes Its
fleece bristle upon end, feels that
it must thrust out Its talons and
scratch."

FOUND    FREEDOM
United States Immigrant to Edmonton
Expresses the .Satisfaction he Has
Had in Change.
He  Expresses  His   Unbounding   lie-
light  With  Residence in
Canadian  West
"You can talk ahout the glories
of the eastern country all you like
but 1 want none of that effete section of the world in mine. Those
older communities are no place for
the working man, at least If he has
any brains in his cranium and experts to ever be anything better than
a mere wage slave. This is God's
country, the promised land of the
man 'who will.' "
This was the declaration to the
Edmonton Journal enunciated in no
uncertain terms by a dapper energetic little man, formerly a citizen
of Chicago, who came to Edmonton
less than a year ago and made good
in the metropolis of the last and
greatest west.
"Don't tell them my name," he
admonished the reporter with whom
he was speaking, "for they might
think 1 was looking for a bunch of
free advertising, but I am only too
glad to be able to speak a favorable
word for Western Canada and tell
of the good fortune that has attended me ever since I first set foot on
the hospitable soil of Central Alberta.
'I was born and raised in Chicago, the big, windy city on the west
shores of restless Lake Michigan, and
lived there until one year ago. I
nad what was counted as a good job,
but despite the fact that I lived as
close as it was possible to do, spending nothing beyond what was absolutely necessary, still I found it utterly impossible to get ahead, and each
month it was a case of living from
hand to mouth and the prospects became worse instead of better. I was
assisted in my struggles for a little
portion of this world's goods by the
best wife in the world, who spent
next to nothing and did all she could
to save   but it was no use.
"One day I happened to drop into
the Clark Street office of the Soo
Line, the States connection of the
Canadian Pacific Railroad, and there
I saw, on the counter, a quantity of
literature dscriptive of Edmonton and
other places in Central Alberta. I
carried some of it home and read
every bit of it, studied the maps and
announced to my friends my intention
of emigrating to Northwestern Canada.
"To tell my friends I was going to
leave the old haunts and seek my
fortune in the west was an easy matter, but to gain the wherewitnal to
pay my transportation aud the additional sum necessary to make a slight
provision for my wife during my absence, was another.
"She was equal to the task of looking out for herself temporarily, however, and secured a job, which, although paying but a mere pittance,
served to keep body and soul together, and after scraping together
every cent possible I found myself
in possession of the amount necessary to purchase a colonist ticket,
plus the few dollars I would need
to pay for my meals en route.
"It was a long and tedious ride,
and at times I suffered with the blues
and became decidedly melancholy.
"The minute we had passed the
customs house and I realized we were
in Canada ihings seemed brighter.
Strange it was that 1 should have
experienced such feelings, as one
would suppose the knowledge that
1 was in a foreign country, almost
penniless, would have made me feel
still more dejected, but I suppose
the fait that 1 was thoroughly Im-
bued with the possibilities of tho
northwesl Is what buoyed mc up.
"Well, I arrived in Edmonton with
exactly 20 cents in my pocket. Here
ii Is, look al it—two big American
nickels and a dime, i did mil have
in spend it, for the monienl l landed
in hewn my guild luck begun and 1
was able to retain possession of the
little amount of coin, and now 1
wouldn't pan with the three pieces
for the world. 1 will keep them
and hand them down to my grandchildren as souvenirs. Some day I
will have them mounted in small
frames to be looked at, but not expended.
"In less than half an hour alter I
disembarked from the train, .1 had
secured a good job, a better one than
I had ever had before, financially
speaking, and when I told my employer 1 was broke, he made me an
advance of $10. To hunt up a room
and remove my luggage from the
Station baggage room was a matter
of but a few minutes; then I felt
rich enough to be able to stand the
expense of telegraphing my wife that
I had arrived and was well, and then
1 Btarted to work on my new job.
"Everything went  lovely, and  lie-
fore the week had ended. I knew my
future success depended on my permanent residence in Edmonton.
"It was not long before I was able
to send my wife a ticket, and what
a happy reunion it was! Neither of
us will ever forget our Happiness at
being reunited in the beautiful west.
"Well, there is not much more to
say. Both of us worked and saved,
and iu less than twelve months from
the time I arrived in Edmonton I
saw my way clear to resign my position and start in business for myself.
"I have just the little place opened up, and have been my own boss
for but tliree days, but that length
of time has sufficed to convince me
that I am going to make good and
realize a better living even than In
my  former  position.
Always   Looking  Ahead
"If the success that has attended
me since the first day I landed in
Edmonton continues, it will be but
a few mouths until I will be in a
position to think something of investing  in  Wesl  End real estate.
"1 have sent many letter and much
literature to my friends in Chicago
and expect to see quite a number of
them out this way in the spring."
The optimistic merchant had a
happy smile on his face, and somewhere in tiie rear of the establishment his wife could be heard at her
work, the while singing a little song
in direct competition with a couple
of canaries which were imprisoned
in a brass cage that hung from the
ceiling.
"Good bye," he said. "If you have
any friends in the east you better
write them to come out here where
there is room for 10,000,000 people
if they are wide awake.'•

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
NEW LEGISLATION
Rumors as to What Will be Done With
Measures That Were Before
the House.
Policy   of   Mr.   Borden   Will   Differ
in Essential Points From Thnt
of  Predecessor
A great deal of proposed legislation will fall by the wayside or be
amended as a result of the change
of government, says an Ottawa despatch. The bills left over Include a
proposal to guarantee the bonds of
the Canadian Northern for that section of its line from Edmonton to
Brazeau coal fields at the rate of
$13,000 a mile for the first fifty
miles and of $25,000 a mile for the
remaining hundred miles; a bill to
amend the Chinese Immigration Act;
a bill to amend the Weights and
Measures Act; a bill to regulate the
sale and manufacture of explosives;
a bill to amend the Companies Act;
a bill respecting copyrights; a bill
to extend bank charters for another
ten years; a bill to prohibit the use
of white phosporous in the manufacture of matches; a bill to amend the
Telegraphs Act; a bill to amend the
Dominion Lands Act; a bill to amend
the Juvenile Delinquents Act; a bill
to amend the Civil Service Act; a bill
to authorize the creation of a commission to operate termii.al elevators; a bill to authorize the taking
over of certain branch lines of railway in the Maritime provinces by
the Intercolonial.
So far as the greater number of
these measures is concernea, they
will have to be gone over by the incoming government and considered
in council as matters of policy, but
there are some of these bills which
are purely departmental and others
which are non-controversial, which
may be taken up by the new government. Take the explosives bill and
that regarding white phosporous, for
example. The principles of both these
measures have been accepted by the
Conservatives and it would not be
surprising to see them taken over en
bloc and pushed to a passage. The
copyright bill may also come in the
same category. But the terminal
elevator measure and the branch
lines p-"ii0oej|s win certainly be de-
drafted, because they Involve high
question oi public pomcy. The bill
to renew bank charters may possibly
be adopted by the new finance ministers, it having been well threshed
out in committee, two sessions ago,
but some amendments may be made
to suit the views of the new administration.
BLINDERS    OF    SATTESMEN
Incidents Illustrating  the Shortcomings of Many of lhe World's
Greatest Minds
Classes in elementary subjects for
cabinet ministers! This was one of
the pet ideas of that humorous giant
of the law, Sir Frank Lockwood, and
the cartoons with which he illustrated it doubled up many a grave legislator with laughter. One of the most
amusing of them was a picture of
Lord Randolph Churchill in Eton
jacket and with knitted brows adding two and two on a slate and making the total five, while Arthur Balfour in cap and gown stood over him
with a threatening cane, says Tit-
Bits.
Never in the history of parliaments
was a finance minister so hopelessly
ignorant of figures as Randolph
Churchill, chancellor of the exchequer. As he nine frankly admitted,
"I couldn't do a rule-of-three sum
to save my life," adding, with a twinkles in his eyes, "1 suppose It is
because 1 lack the sense of proportion.' " When liis secretary once
placed before him a formidable array
of statistics, material for the budget,
he scanned the phalanxes of figures
with the air of an approving gen,
eral and said, "Yes, that Is all right;
but"—putting a finger on a few of
the decimal points—"just tell me,
what do these Infernal dots mean?"
But if Randolph Churchill was
weak In decimals and vulgar fractions, he was at least stronger in
Scruptural knowledge than some ot
his fellow legislators. In a debate
a few years ago George Wyndham
referred to David and the fifty fighting men he had in a cave. "Not David
—Daniel," interjected Sir Edward
Grey. "I am much obliged to my
right honorable friend," continued
Mr. Wyndham; "of course, I meant
Daniel," as the House resounded
with laughter and shouts of "Oba-
diah!"
A little later the same evening Sir
Edward again aired hie Biblical
knowledge by speaking of the feeding of the prophets on bread and wa
ter, when Sir William Evans Gordon
convulsed everybody by suggesting
that the prophetic menu consisted of
locusts and wild honey.
Certainly a few lessons on the
Bible would have been useful to a
good many of our statesmen, past
and present. Mr. Gladstone once
committed the atrocity of putting
Daniel in the fiery furnace, and made
the Psalmists responsible for the
words, "God tempers the wind to the
shorn lamb." John Bright saddled
St. Paul with the well known aphorism, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness"; and Lord John Russell made
a touching reference to Pharoah and
his host struggling in the engulfing
waters ot the Jordan.
It was Cobden, we believe, who
spoke of that beautiful psalm beginning, "Now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace"; and W. 11.
Smith once assured the House that
"not the whole House of Commons,
not all the Bench of Bishops, not
even Leviticus himself, could pre-
prevent some men from marrying
their deceased wife's sister."
When Sir Richard Cross was once
talking impressively of "lacs of rupees," a curious member interrupted him with the question, "How
much is a lac of rupees?" Sir Richard hummed and ha'ed, grew red in
the face, and ultimately confessed
that "he really hadn't the slightest
idea." And when Lord Curzon was
once asked during a speech on Indian finance, what an "anna" was,
all the reply he could vouchsafe was,
"The anna, sir, is—er—er—an Indian coin of smaller_value that a rupee."
But it is in geography that the
statesman is most commonly at
fault. It is said that Lord Cranbrook, when secretary for India, once
convulsed dthe House by referring
to "the whole of our great Indian
dependency from the Himalayas to
Cape Cormorant." Another prominent statesmen coolly annexed Manitoba to theh United States, and, in
spite of the laughter and protests of
the House, refused to change its geographical position.
On another occasion whenn Mr.
Goschen referred in the course of a
speech to the Lucayos Islands, and
was asked where tne Lucayos Islands were, he had to admit that he
didn't know. "Perhaps," he added,
looking around the House, "some
honorable member can enlighten
me?" A dead silence fell on the
House; members looked helplessly
at oneanother or at the roof; and it
was only when one of them stole
away to the library and consulted an
atlas that the pall of ignorance was
raised and the Lucayos Islands were
identified with the better known Bahamas.
Mr. Disraeli once startled and
amused the House—it was on the
eve of the Indian Mutiny—hby saying that, to the best of his knowledge, Delhi was on the Ganges; but
even he was eclipsed by the fifth
Duke of Newcastle, who, when war
secretary, declared that "to be sure,
Annapolis must be defended, troops
must be sent to Annapolis," and immediately added, r>y the way, wliere
is Annapolis?" It was an earlier
Duke of Newcastle who once exclaimed to a friend, "Cape Breton an
island! Wonderful! Show it to me
on the map. So it is, sure enough,
i must go and tell the king that Cape
Breton Is an island."
Some years ago Sir Edward Grey
was sorely puzzled to say how far
Tabah Is from Suez. "I do not say
that it is not 130 iles," he said, in
answer to Mr. Lupton; but when tht?
latter, having led him so far, asked,
"Is It more than two?" Sir Edward
declined to answer; lie was frankly
out of his ground. Nor was the first
foreign minister to be caught napping. A ticklish position had been
reached in tho affair, which was eventually to lead to the Abyssinian war,
which Palnierston marked a despatch
to be "returned to MT, IMowdeii.
consul at Massowan, to bo written
over again in blacker ink." And he
innocently added a private minute:
"Where exactly Is Massowah?"
It was not Palnierston, however,
but his under-secretary, who once addressed a letter to "Ottawa, Ontario,
United States of America!"
Orchards Deteriorating
Reports of the serious detoriatlon
of orange, apple and pear orchards
on the irrigated land of California,
Oregon, Washington and other western states where extensive farming
enithods are followed, has resulted In
the beginning of an investigation by
the department of agriculture to determine the causes. The government
will keep fruit and soil experts In
the irrigation states for several
months studying the effect of the
abundance of water upon the orchards. The decline In the value of
established orchards has amounted to
millions of dollars, according to authorities of the agricultural department.

SUGGESTED CHANGES
y
Rumors Relative to Some of the Adjust
ments That May be Made
at Ottawa.
Mistakes of Mackenzie King as Minister of Labor Fully
Discussed
One or two bits of work invite the
attention of ehe Conservative cabinet, that is to be, says the special
correspondent of the Vancouver
News-Advertiser, referring to the results of the election,
One is the linking of the department of labor to some other department. The experiment of running
labor as a separate department has
faned. Mackenzie King embroiled
himself with the laboring man all
over the country.
As deputy minister, under no temptation to play politics, he was a fair
success. Once he became minister
he rushed into disputes and tried to
get credit out of the vital interesls
of the workingmen. Any success
which he gained was acclaimed as
proof of the excellence of the government, and the work of the department naturally was continually
a subect jof political dispute.
Trade and commerce has been
known for a department with possibilities which a lethargic administration left unrealized. If trade and
commerce were linked with labor, the
result would be a compact group, affording a minister a set of related
problems to master. He would be
taken away from the temptation to
mix with the actual working out of
individual labor disputes, and could
leave them to the present deputy
minister, who would leave politics
to politicians.
in this connection an advantageous
measure of reorganization would be
the addition to the group of the department, of the Bureau of Census
and Statistics.
Then there would be a department of Commerce, Labor and Statistics. There is no logical reason
why statistics should be administered
under the Department of Agriculture.
But a piece of work lying immediately to hand is the investigation of
the spending departments.
It is a curious fact that all three
members of the famous blockers' brigade are in the new parliament.
These gentlemen doubtless will be
pleased to have the public given a
chance to learn what those things
were which they strove so sedulously
to conceal.
Mr. Ames has dropped some hints.
The chairmanship of the public accounts committee, and assuredly that
committee under his presidency
could do valuable service in the next
two years, constructive as well is investigatory.
But, in addition, it would he a judicious move to appoint, say Mr. Justice Cassels as commissioner to investigate the spending departments,
of which the public works is a conspicuous example, so the printing bureau and the National Transcontinental commission might welcome the
opportunity of explaining the theory
of overbreaks.
Judge Cassels, with a prosecuting
counsel like Mr. Blackstock and a
free hand, should have an interesting
time.

REINDEER   FOR   NORTH

Consignment I'm- Forth Smith From

Tliree carloads of Lapland reindeer
iTiim Northern Newfoundland was
the remarkable freight which arrived
in    Edmonton   oil   Tuesday    on     Hie
i'. \. it. from ilie east. There were
forty-three reindeer in three cars,
and tlie fourth ear was stocked with
reindeer food, muss and grass. Tlie

menl nf tire. Interior lias planned in
slock districts 01 .Mackenzie, the animals to bo used for carrying purposes in the long reaches of the
nortli  in place of dogs.
Tlie consignment of reindeers left
Newfoundland on September S, and
passed through Quebec on September
IS, to reach Edmonton a week later.
The reindeer will be taken by rail
as far as Stoney Creek, Oil miles
north of Edmonton, and from that
point they will be taken overland to
.-vtabasca _anding. ime that have
been well broke will be led and
others will be conveyed In wagons.
At Athabasca Landing the animals
will he placed in scows and floated
down the Athabasca River to Fort
Smith, which is ineir destination.
i..ey will have travelled fully 5,000
miles hy the time they reach the end
of tne journey.
"I look for this—that the Democratic party in the United States will
he compelled to put on the free list
everything that the farmers of Canada desire to see free in the United
States, without our making a single
concession, and that Canada can arrange its own tariffs wholly irrespective of any bargain with the United Stales or any country in the
world 1 also look for the victory of
the Unionist party ill the Motherland. Then Canada will, in consequence, have an immediate advantage over her greatest commercial
rival, and the solidarity of the Empire will not only be assured by the
sentiment which now exists, but by
the strong commercial ties which will
then be created.
"1 believe that the young men of
Canada, Liberal and Conservative,
won the great triumph because they
understood that, although for a lifetime the United States had hanged
bolted and barred the doors against
Canada, Canada was now in a position, owing to her strength and independence, to give the United States
complete reciprocity in the banging,
bolting and barring of doors, and
did  it.
"My gratification is that, not only
has R. L. Borden a large majority
but that he is surrounded by such
talent that there can be no doubt
but tnat the welfare of Canada Is
now absolutely assured."
These were some ot the remarks
made to the News-Advertiser by Sir
l-Iibbert Tupper, who returned to
Vancouver direct from Halifax, sharing to the utmost the gen ral satisfaction at the result of the recent
election.
STOCKING WITH DEER
Queen   Charlotte  Islands  Will   Have
Giiine Placed on Them by
Government
With a view to further enriching
the splendid game resources of British Columbia and to widening the
field for sport for the large numbers
of well known hunters of big game
coming to this province every year,
the provincial government has undertaken the stocking of Queen Charlotte Islands with deer. Already several fine specimens have been placed
on the islands and more will be captured and conveyed there.
"The climate on Queen Charlotte
Islands is eminently suitable for deer
and we see no reason why these
islands should not be made one of
the finest game preserves in the province," said Bryan Williams, provincial game warden, in Vancouver. "We
hope by turning out about eighteen
of twenty head on the Islands to
provide a sufficient number to allow
of hunters spending a very profitable,
season there. A year ago several
head of cariboo were found on Queen
Charlotte Islands, altogether different from the species to be found in
other parts of Britisii Columbia and
ilthough several expeditions have
been sent there no traces of any
cariboo has been obtained since then.
The specimens secured on the islands
have been presented to the museum. '

BIG  IRRIGATION  PROJECT
liiiiiieu.se Dam Being Erected by the
('.  P.  R. at  I'.nssiiiiie
Canadian Pacific Railway Officials
report good progress in connection
with the construction of their big
dam at Bassano, Alberta. This dam
is being erected by the immigration
department of the Canadian Pacific
Railway to divert water from the
Bow River into the main canal of
I in., east section of the irrigation
block. H will consist, when completed, of an earth embankment mi
the south bank of the Bow River,
and a reinforced concrete spillway in
tin- existing river channel, connected
ai the northerly end with the canal
headgates. The river is approximately 600 feel wide ut liiis point,
ils south bank having a gravel beach
several hundred feet in width, gradually rising to the prairie level. The
earth embankment will he about
T.iiiiii feet in length and 350 feet in
width at. the thickest part of the
base, containing approximately one
million cubic yards of earth. Its
upper surface will be paved with
boulder concrete or reinforced concrete slabs.
The tqtal length of weir will be
about 600 feet, and the structure
will be about 720 feet in length between abutments. The overflow-
crest will be at a maximum height
of forty feet, above which eleven
feet of water will be retained by
structural steel gates. The spillway
will contain about 40,000 cubic yards
of concrete, and 1,250 tons of reinforcing steel.
Lord Charles Beresford Gives His Views
on the Turkish-Italian
Entanglement.
Stirring  Up of  Mohammedans Might
Have Serious  Results in
the   World
That the Turkish-Italian entanglement, which was brought to a crisis
by a declaration of war, may change
tlie mail of Europe and cause a religious struggle throughout the world
Is the opinion of Lord Charles cleres-
ford in an interview with the News-
Advertiser.
"it is bad for England because
England exercises a suzerainty over
the biggest Mohammedan area in the
world—India," said Lord Charles,
"and no man can tell what will be
the end, for it means the stirring up
of the Mohammedans, As far as the
fitness of the combatant nations is
concerned it is my opinion that Turkey has the best army and Italy the
best navy but 1 hardly believe that
the Triple Allance existing between
Germany, Austria and Italy will be
the means of drawing other European
nations into the conflict. In England,
those who know the situation, believe that in a war Italy would look
to Germany for backing, and in that
case Turkey would look to England
for assistance. This, with the bringing into the question of the millions
of Mohammedans in Africa and
Asia, gives the whole situation a dangerous color."
Regarding Great Britain's fitness
for war, Lord Charles declined to
say more than: "I told the people
of Vancouver through the News- Advertiser that what we have of a navy
today is not organized for war; that
ureat Britain needs a fixed naval
programme, and until she adopts one
she will find herself sadly andicap-
ped in time of need. More than that
I cannot say with propriety and any
further statements, purporting to be
interviews with me, are not alone
false and without foundation, but
merely fabrications of imaginative reporters who do not seem to appreciate the delicate position of myself
sufficiently to refrain from foisting
upon an unsuspecting public overheated deductions and prophecies of
their own in my name."

CHARGES INTRIGUE
City Engineer of Victoria Has Complained  Against  Mayor  Morley
Charging the mayor with intriguing against him, turning the aldermen and citizens against him by underhand methods, asserting that he
does not now, nor has he for a long
time, believed that the mayor desired
to give him even Britisii fair play,
and that he is ready, with the assistance oi the aldermen and citizens to
maintain his position and give to the
city that service to which he believes
it is entitled. City Engineer Smith
of Victoria confronted Mayor Morley at a meeting of the city council,
when the latter, reverting to his old-
time charges of incompetency iu the
engineering department, once again
advocated the appointment of John
W. Astley of Winnipeg as engineer
of construction for Victoria.
With dignity and calmness, City
Engineer Smith recalled his career
in Victoria, hampered, he declared,
by the machinations of the mayor,
who ever since the engineer's arrival
and particularly during recent
months, has lost no opportunity of
rendering his work a burden instead
of assigning him to evolve order out
of the chaos which reigned when he
arrived  In  the city.

two, the mayor and Alderman Glea-
son dissenting, determined to notify
Mr. Astley that his services are not
required in Victoria, and by so doing,
expressed their opinion of the treatment which the engineer has received at the hands of the city's chief
magistrate. Indeed, immediately
following this decision a resolution
was passed, referring to the finance
committee of the council a recommendation that Mr. Smith's salary
be increased $100 per month, he being the only official who this year
was not granteo an increase.

A Peculiar Well
The attention of the Geological
Survey of the United States having
some time ago been called to a peculiar well in Ohio, an investigation
thereof was made. The well produces both fresh and salt water
through two separate pumps. The
explanation proved To be quite simple. Two i ater be tring beds confined between layers of limestone occur at this point, one above the other.
The pipe of the fresh water pump
taps the upper vein at a depth of
sixteen feet. The pipe of the salt
water pump touches the lower vein at
a depth of thirty-two feet; and the
brine, being heavier than the fresh
water, does not mix with it, but remains at the bottom.

Immense Power Scheme
It was officially announced by the
projectors that ,..) 000,000 of British capital will be available in Portland, Ore., within ninety days for the
development of the greatest water
power project in the Pacific Northwest. The company will construct
huge dams on the Deschutes River
bar which will be capable of developing a minimum of 75,000 horsepower, although its rights, held at
the point selected for beginning the
work carries a theoretical maximum
of 140,000 horsepower. It is stated
that the power will be used for irrigating vast tracts oi land in the
ueschutes country, but another object may be the developing of electrical power for railroad and illuminating purposes. ihis belie, is
strengthened by the fact that one of
the prime movers in the project is
Leroy Park, the former right hand
man of u. :• '. Stevens in the building of the Oregon Trunk Railroad
through central Oregon.
This is Julius P. Rochau, who left
Kansas City, Mo., July, 1910, and
whose relatives desire to get in touch
with him. For any information concerning his whereabouts and leading
to his location, Charles H. Frye,
Ninth Avenue and Columbia Street,
Seattle, Wash., U. S. A., will pay a
reward of $200.
If Mr. Rochau sees this, it will be
to his advantage to communicate
with Mr. Frye at once, as everything
is all right and there is no reason
why he should not return to his
family immediately.

Pee'Slay Satisfactory' Range
Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening into the body there
is a   Malleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed in such Joints.   They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus stove  bolts and  stove  putty.    It'»
important  to every  one  using  or  buying
a range.
