CORONATION TROOPS
Colonial  Force   Will  be Quartered

at
Lord Kitchener Will Have Command
of Lund Forces Taking
Part in Event
(Special to The Journal)
LONDON, March 10.—-The Colonial troops attending the coronation
of King George will be quartered at
the Duke of York School, at Chelsea.
Lord Strathcona has given $1,250
towards the fund for the entertainment of these forces.
Lord Kitchener, it has been decided, shall be in command of all
the troops at the coronation.
The coronation will present no
more striking and significant feature
than the representative force from
the new Imperial Army, which will
take part. It is not merely that
the force will be gathered from every
part ofthe world and from a wonderful diversity of races, not merely
that the variety of uniform and
equipment will give a most picturesque display, but, in addition, every
corps will have a history and a
meaning of its own; every man will
be a symbol of the forces which have
built up and are holding together
the British  Empire.
At the end of May these stalwart
soldiers will begin to pour in from
the ends of the earth. Australia,
Canada, New Zealand and South
Africa will send their representatives
who will include Boers and French
Canadians, while there will be detachments of all arms—mounted rifles, artillery, engineers and infantry. In addition to these larger contingents troops are coming from tlie
following places: Malta, Bermuda,
Straits Settlements, West Africa,
Uganda, Ceylon, Lagos, China, Fiji,
Leeward Islands, Barbadoes, Egypt,
Cyprus, East Africa, Nigeria, Gambia, British Guiana, Falkland Islands, West Indies, Mauritius, Trinidad.
The various regiments will include
in addition to white troops, black
and yellow soldiers and police. The
regiments to bo represented include
the Malta Artillery and Militia, Singapore V. R., Penang V. R., Cyprus
Police, Gold Coast Regiment, Southern Nigerian Regiment, Northern
Nigerian Regiment, Ceylon B. R.,
King's African Rifles, Sierra Leone
Battalion, Gambia Company, Lagos
Constabulary, West India Regiment
and Malay States detachment.
The various forces will roughly
comprise a company fro mthe Channel Islands, 200 men from the
Crown Colonies, and 1,500 men from
the Dominions.
About 25,000 troops will be utilized in the actual ceremony, but the
number doing duty In London will
be over 50,000, covering the two
days.

PROTECTION FOR
CANADIAN FISHERIES
Canadian Government it is Reported Has Made Arrangements with the Whalers Operated by Mackenzie
& Mann to Carry Fishery Protection Office
It Is reported that the scheme
which the Dominion Government has
in view for the better protection of
the fisheries of this coast includes
the taking in of the whaling schooners under arrangement as patrol
steamers. This will not interfere
with the regular business of the
schooners but as the vessels are fast
ones easily handled and are engaged
in their regular operations close to
the waters which are subject to being poached upon, the schooners will,
it is thought be able to gather in
prizes from time to time.
A fishing protection officer will be
placed on board each of the schooners.
No details are available at present
but it is prohably this scheme which
the Minister of Marine and Fisheries
had in his mind when, in answering
a question of G. H. Barnard in the
House of Commons a few weeks ago
he said that an adequate protection
he felt could be given but he did not
care to make it public at the time.
The whalers will be subsidized for
the duty In a similar way to which
in some years ago arrangements
were made by which they were to act
in giving assistance to vessels In distress off the west coast of Vancouver
Island.
The schooners' field of operations
under the plans of the newly organized company will extend from the
Straits of Juan de Fuca to Alaskan
waters. If they are all empowered
to seize poachers found within th^
three-mile limit they should have a
very deterring effect upon the United
States vessels that make a practice
of preying upon the fish within Canadian waters.
The trouble in the past with the
Dominion Government protection
steamers has been that they are too
slow and too few to give any good
results. The cruiser Rainbow, which
will engage in the work, while successful in one instance, is regarded
a stoo large a vessel to very effectively carry out this work. The
small whalers are fast and liable to
appear unexpectedly at any point
along the coast and are thus better
adapted for the service required.
TO GUARD FRONTIER
U.S.
Government is Sending Troops to
Mexican Border to Stop
Fillibustering.
No Further Smuggling of Arms and
Men Is to Re Allowed Between Republics
(Special to The Journal)
WASHINGTON, March 10.—A
despatch dated Charlottesville, Vs.,
through which place the prosident's
train passed last night, says: "All
doubt as to the purpose of the government in sending 20,000 troops to
the Mexican border has been swept
away."
The United States has determined
that the revolution in the republic
to the south must end.
The American troops have been
sent to form a solid military wall
alon gthe Rio Grande and stop filibustering. There is to be no further
smuggling of arms and men across
the  international   boundary.

MASTER NOT  RESPONSIBLE
Mr.      Justice      Murphy      Dismisses
Conviction  Against  Mr.' McLennan
by  Magistrate  South.
That the master cannot be held
always responsible for the servant's
acts under the Bush Fire Law, was
the effect a decision rendered by
Mr. Just'ce Murphy, dismissing a
conviction against Mr. R. P. McLennan by Mr. C. J. South, J. P., in
August last. Mr. South, in entering
the conviction, expressed his wish
that it might be taken to a higher
court and the matter finally settled.
Mr. McLennan was fined because
some Japanese employed by him had
set a fire on his ranch on Gambler
Island, which had got away from
them. The defence was that the fire
had been started without Mr. McLen-
nan's authority.
In his judgment, which was read
in chambers, Mr. Justice Murphy
said that he did not consider that the
evidence had warranted the magistrate In convicting. In the second
place, there was no justification for
the magistrate in holding that Mr.
McLennan was guilty of any offence
owing to the acts of his servants.
"I think that the magistrate
wrongly interpreted the section of
the Bush Fires Act under which he
proceeded," said His Lordship. "Tho
magistrate must understand how impossible it i? to hold that any person
who is unfortunate enough to have a
fire on his place Is guilty of an offence. The meaning oi section 12
of the act is that. It is incumbent on
the person who caused a fire to be
set out to show that he did it under
the provisions of the statute as to
permits, etc."
The license commisioners met on
I Wednesday in the city hall for their
I statutory quarterly gathering to con-
s u«r applications for licenses. There
were present only Commissioner
Smith and Commisioner Merryfield.
It was decided to adjourn until
March 23 when Mayor Manson would
be here and a full board could sit.
Chief McCarvell reported that the
different licensed houses were conducting their premises in a proper
manner. The G. T. P. Inn lie reported had had the frosting removed
from the windows improving the situation as far as a clear view was
concerned. The regulations, he felt,
however, had not been fully complied with in this respect.
Commissioner Smith explained
that probably lie was responsible for
the situation as it existed as he had
told Mr. Sweet that he thought the
work done would bring the premises
in line with the rules. He suggested that the commissioners might
look over the premises' and decide
whether the windows were sufficiently unobstructed.
Commissioner Merryfield said that
he felt the regulations should be
lived up to. If it was found they
were not being fully observed, he
wanted to see the proprietors made
to live up to the rules.
The applications for licenses were
then enumerated by the clerk as follows: Julius Levy, for a bottle license; Fred E. Hunt, for a bottle
license on the premises of Prince
Rupert Wholesale Supply Company;
John W. Austin, for bottle license
in Hub Cigar Store; Geo. Sutherland,
for restaurant license at Douglas
Cafe; A. J. Prudhomme, for hotel
license for Savoy Hotel.
Mr. Prudhomme also made application for a renewal of the license.
The application was accompanied
by a petition signed by 300 persons.
After a little discussion as to adjournment, it was decided to no adjourn.
Mr. Prudhomme said he would
have to go south on business and
suggested a date when he could he
present. It was explained that his
application was all in order and
could be dealt with In his absence
all right. The acting chairman, Aid,
Smith, said that nothing would lie
done to prejudice his application because he happened lo be absent if
the court sat while lie was away.
They could hold over his application
if it was found necessary until lie
returned. This was agreeable to
Mr. Prudhomme and the court adjourned until March 23.
The discovery, isolation and culture of the bacillus of leprosy, just
announced by Mrs. C. V. Duval and
.Maurice Couret of the pathological
department of Tulane University of
New Orleans, and the experiments
made with bacilli shed a great deal
of new light on the origin, spread
and contagion of leprosy and promise as an early result a serum' that
will give protection against the disease.
In the world-wide investigation
which has been carried on for years
into the nature of leprosy, physicians
in Louisiana have had an important
part. They have had good opportunities for research because the
state maintains a leper hospital at
Indian Camp in Iberville parish. Nowhere has greater progress been
made in the examination and cure of
leprosy.
The disease was very prevalent in
Louisiana in Spanish and French
days. Then nothing was done but
to chase tile lepers into the swamps,
la terre des le preux, as it was
called. Even after the civil war a
very large colony of lepers was collected on the levees or swampy portions of Bayou, Lefourche and in
several sections of the Acadian
country  in  Southern  Louisiana.
Twenty years ago the leper hospital was established and a law passed
segregating the lepers and compelling them to go to the leper home.
Much difficulty was encountered at
first in enforcing the law through
mistaken sympathy with the lepers,
but the home was made so comfortable that the prejudice aaginst it has
passed away, and it has latterly received all persons found to be affected with the disease. In this way
leprosy has gradually been eliminated in Louisiana and new cases are
rare, numbering not more than one
or two a year.
Some forty lepers are now gathered at Indian Camp and all except
a few are steadily improving in
health. Three years ago Dr. Isadbre
Dyar, the physician of the home and
one of the best authorities on leprosy in the world, announced that
four of the inmates had been cured.
Altogether eight have been dismissed
as cured.
The treatment has been simple
enough, consisting of good living
conditions, good food, frequent hot
baths and a few of tlie medicines
recognized as beneficial to lepers. At
the present rate of progress another
ten years will probably see the end
of leprosy In Louisiana through the
cure of the milder cases and the
death of the few patients in whom
the disease has progressed too far
for effective treatment.
While the work of treating and
curing leprosy was being carried on
Ihe physicians have been investigating the disease itself to learn its
cause, to discover its bacillus and to
find a serum that would cure or prevent it. This investigation has been
conducted in a dozen different parts
of the world, but under most favorable conditions In Louisiana, where
alone in this'country the disease can
be studied at  first  hand.
From time to time discoveries
have been made. As a matter of
fact, there has been a very strong
disposition to accept tile conclusion
of Dr. Jonathan Hutchison of England, presented by him to Ihe International Leprologlst convention of
1890, held at Berlin that uncooked
or putrid fish was the means by
which leprosy was transmitted to
man. This fact was apparently demonstrated by all the conditions under
which tlie disease prevails, leprosy
being restricted to peoples living on
the coast, whose principal diet Is fish
especially raw or more or less
putrid.
But while tliis theory wns generally accepted il was not scientifically
proved. Tills His. lluvnl and Couret
have finally demonstrated, and tin-
proof will call fur Mini*' experimentation only to provide the scrum.
The germ of leprosy Is said to
have been discovered as far hack as
The Board of Directors of the
Prince Rupert General Hospital met
on Wednesday afternoon and considered pressing business.
A number of bills were presented
for payment and referred to * the
finance committee.
The house committee reported
that the matron had been authorized
to engage another nurse. The committee further had taken up the
question of having the hospital
granted the power to confer diplomas to nurses trained in the institution and the secretary had been
asked to communicate with the authorities  in  the matter.
The committee also has communicated with the Medical Association
asking that body to name the order
in which the different medical men
would serve as house surgeon, in ac-
accordance with the proposition
made in that connection.
On this point the question was
raised as to whether the board
would be responsible for the fees to
tho doctors of any patients who were
not able to pay and to whom they
were called as house surgeon.
It, was explained by the president
and the chairman of the bouse committee that 'conversations with the
medical men had been held and the
doctors assured them that the board
would not be asked to assume any
liability in that respect. The medical men were willing to take chances
on being paid otherwise.
A resolution was passed embodying the principle that the board
would not be responsible for the doctor's fees in the case of indigent patients.
Tlie question of a concert to be
given by the Choral Society in which
the hospital was asked to bear half
the expenses and get half the proceeds was brought up by the president. It. was decided to endorse the
proposition, and a committee consisting of the president, J. A. Kirkpatrick and J. Thompson was appointed to represent the board in
the arrangements.
In this connection It was thought
wise for the board to go on record
with respect to concerts proposed to
be given for the hospital. It was decided thai such entertainments
should provide all the funds going to
the hospital.
The question of supplies to the
hospital and the method of ordering
was brought up. Tlie house committee stated that the instructions were
to divide tlie orders up among tlie
different firms which had contributed to the funds of the institution.
After some discussion this system
was approved  of  by  the board.
A committee consisting of the
Hon. President, W. Manson, M. P. P.,
the President, D, G, Stewart,, J. A.
Kirkpatrick, M. M. Stephens and
O. H. Nelson, were appointed to go
into the whole question of contract
patients and report to tlie board
upon  some system  to adopt.
The house committee was authorized to draft a set of regulations
dealing with the Interior working of
tlie Institution.

X PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Friday, March  10, 1911
LEGISLATION PASSED
Some   Particulars of the Acts Which
Were Put Through
House.
Provincial Law Makers Added to the
Statutes Useful En-
uctnients
Referring to the legislation
passed at the last sitting of the Legislature, the Colonist says: In that
portion which may be bracketted as
"public safety legislation," probably
the most striking measure was the
Premier's bill to amend the Coal
Mines Regulation Act; but while
this may be classed as an outstanding bill in itself, it contains few
characteristic features really intelligible to the lay mind. Experts in
coal mining testify, however, that the
bill comprises all that is best in the
coal mines laws of other countries
making fort he greater safety of the
mine woikers. The House certainly
spent more time on this bill than on
any other during the session, the
protracted discussions in committee
being chiefly due to the minute criticism of Mr. Hawthornthwaite and
Mr. Williams, the latter especially
bringing to bear on it a practical
knowledge which proved beneficial
in many particulars. In spite of Mr.
Hawthornthwaite's criticisms he acknowledged when the bill came up
for third reading that it was one of
the best measures ever passed in the
House, and probably the best legislation of the kind in any part of
the world.
Another public safety measure of
great Importance was the Attorney-
General's bill to regulate the use of
motor vehicles. This was a bill necessitated by the changing conditions
of twentieth century travel. Its regulations were condemned by many
automobile men as being too drastic, but the Attorney-General declared that where the safety of the
public is concerned it is better that
the arm of the law should be
stretched a little, but "who by taking thought can add one cubit" to
that which is made too short! The
bill at least provides definite rules
for automobile traffic; it provides a
good working basis and should anything in it prove impracticable it
will at least always be possible to
amend it. It must be borne in mind
that' the same complaint of over
stringency was raised against the
Liquor Act which the Attorney-
General brought down a year ago,
but which has been found to work
exceedingly well in practice. The
Tramways Inspection Act, also introduced by the Attorney General, validates rules for the better control of
tramway traffic and so also insures
greater safety to the traveling public.
Another measure with humanitarian aims was the amendment to the
Health Act brought down by Hon.
Dr. Young, to provide for the inspection of logging camps, sawmills and
other industrial establishments.
Where conditions in the camps are
insanitary or filthy this act will give
the government power to rectify
them. The bill introduced by the
Attorne-General to compel husbands
to maintain deserted wives speaks
for itself in the title. It adds greater
power to these already given to magistrates to compel delinquent husbands to support wives who may
have been conipelledt o leave them
through their cruelty or neglect.
While the maximum of $20 a week,
which a husband may be forced to
contribute in this way may not satisfy all parties, it. is still sufficient
to overcome all pressing needs.
While the amendments to the Dower
Act. and the Inheritance Act which
accompanied the former measure
Into the House, did not have the
honor of passing with il. through the
doors, they were brought a certain
distance on the way, and In a future
session may well complete their
journey. This legislation while fathered by the Attorney-General, was
mothered in tlie kindly circle of the
National  Council  of Women.
Another important bill that makes
for public safety in a slightly different, way was that of the Attorney-
General to regulate trust companies.
Money is tlie sinew of war whether
It be against enemies In flesh and
blood or against poverty and want,
and any measure that ensures to tbe
public greater safely In their investments must be considered a sound
one. This bill provides for the systematic Inspection of trust companies, so that to those doing a
sound and honest business It will
prove an advertisement, and if it
sends the shifty and shaky to the
wall it Is better that they should
lose than that the general public
should  suffer.

ST. LOUIS, MO. U. S. A.
Distributors
Prince Rupert, B. C.
owes its origin to the thoughtful-
ness of a private member, Mr. Frank
.Mackenzie of Delta. This bill to restrict the sale of habit-forming
drugs, may perhaps limit the sale of
cocaine, morphine and opium to
some extent, but if it also limits
their intemperate use, not only the
poor dope fiend, but the general
public to which he is a burden, will
have reason for gratitude.
Turning from public safety to
public utility one is struck by the
preponderance of railway legislation
as instanced chiefly by the big consolidated railways act brought down
by the Attorney-General. This
rather voluminous measure, while a
new feature in itself, cannot be said
to contain many new features in its
clauses, being for the most part a
replica and condensation of separate
charters in consolidated form.
Among the new features it does contain is the one that provides that in
future railway companies may register, like joint stock companies,
without coming to the legislature at
all, and so may be enabled to proceed with their work without delay.
While It simplifies the procedure as
to the carrying out of the provisions
of the charter when it is obtained.
Like the municipal clauses act It
provides for many instead of one;
and naturally in working out its
provisions much must be left to the
discretion of the Minister of Railways. Noteworthy, by the way, along
the same line was the legislation
bringing into existence a department
of railways with its specified minister. It is only another indication of
how the simultaneous construction of
three transcontinental railways
through the province, calls for legislative and administrative action.
While the minister of public works
will carry on the department for
a while, the time cannot be far distant when its multiplying duties will
call for a separate minister. In the
meantime in order to relieve the
Minister of Public Works a little, a
deputy minister for that department
lias been provided for.
Apart from general railway legislation a number of special charters
were granted, though owing probably to the recognized fact that the
general act was shortly to come into
force, there were fewer of these than
in former sessions. The greater
number of these are intended to develop the northern part of the province; and it was openly stated that
Mr. Norton Griffiths, the prominent
British capitalist is behind two of
them, namely—the Mid-Provincial
Nechaco and the Naas and Peace
River schemes. The Naas and .Skeena
River railways would seem to be an
allied interest, while of special interest to Vancouver was the bill to
incorporate the Grouse Mountain
Scenic Railway Company, a scheme
that would seem to bring in prospect
for inhabitants of the terminal city,
cool mountain breezes in summer
and skating and curling in the winter months.
The reconstruction of the Portland  Canal Short Line as the Cana
dian & Northeastern presages the
early extension of this Stewart City
local line via Bear River, the upper
Naas Valley and Pine River Pass to
an ultimate terminus on the Hudson's Bay, this project being from
the outset assured success since it
has behind it that master railway
builder Sir Donald  Mann.
In special legislation the two principal cities of Vancouver and Victoria have figured largely. Within
the last week of the session Hon.
Mr. Bowser brought down his bill
to ratify the agreement between the
city of Vancouver and the Great
Northern Railway Company oveT
False Creek. Not only did it
strengthen the former agreement
from the city's standpoint, but, it
also insures that work will be begun
and continued to a finish in the development of the False Creek basin.
In addition to that the Attorney-
General brought in legislation to
enable the city to expropriate the
waterfront lots on Main street which
will give access to tbe city's property in the centre of the creek. Further than that the city's charter has
been amended in many particulars,
so that it will be enabled the better to cope with changing conditions.
Then again the site of the provincial
university has been definitely fixed
in Point Grey contiguous to the city,
and this Institution must greatly enhance Vancouver's prestige as an
educational centre.
A number of useful agricultural
measures marked the debut of Hon.
Price Ellison, himself a farmer, as
minister of agriculture, showing that
the new minister is bringing to this
important department a practical
knowledge that must be of great
benefit to this province.
Of eighty-eight bills Introduced
(luring the session seventy-eight received the assent of the Lieutenant-
Governor at prorogation. Three
bills introduced by Mr. Hawthornthwaite and Mr. P. Williams, met defeat at second reading. These were
Mr. Hawthornthwaite's amendment
to the Workmen's Compensation Act
and his bill to prevent discrimination
against members of trades unions.
I'. Williams' hardy annual to compel
the fortnightly payment of wages
went down to Us yearly defeat.
Three private bills were withdrawn.
While the volume of legislation introduced this session was smaller
than last, the number of bills passed
was almost as great. In the session
of 1910, 93 bills were introduced, of
which 82 became law, 54 being public acts and 28 private. This year
88 bills were introduced, of which 78
became law—63 public and 15 private bills. It will thus be seen that
In public acts a greater number have
become law than last, though there
was a heavy falling off in the number of private bills. This was due
probably to two causes. The greater number of private bills are railway charters, and no doubt many applications for these were withheld
awa'ting the advent of the general
railway act; many no doubt were,
also deterred from making applica
tions by uie Premier's announcement
a year before, that in future if a
railway company failed to follow up
its charter by actual construction its
deposit would be forfeited. It does
not mean, however, that there has
been any diminution in actual activity
in railway building, as more is being
done by large corporations than ever
before in the history of the province.
In addition to all the weighty
legislation mentioned above, the supply bill authorized the expenditure
of a sum approximating $12,000,000,
a sum never before equalled, so that
while the session has been neither
noisy nor contentious, it has proved
that the mill wheel of legislation can
move as effectively in a calmly
flowing as in a turbulent stream.
PRINCE    RUPERT    ASSESSMENT
DISTRICT
THE   NAAS  VALLEY
Rapid  Development of a  Section of
Northern Ifiltish Columbia
Less than a year ago tbe Naas
Valley first came into prominence
through the efforts of a brave little
band of pioneers who went up there
to stake land and finai'y succeeded
in locating 60,000 acres, says the
Week. They brought back a good
report; told of a valley 200 miles
long and ten to fifteen miles wide,
which was fertile, with alluvial soil,
light'y timbered, traversed by a river and watered by numerous tributaries. Later on other adventurous
spirits followed the lead and by the
time that the first 60,000 acres had
been disposed of to Mr. James S.
Rear, of Vancouver, a second section
of 90,000 acres was taken up by Mr.
Morton Griffiths, the member for
Wednesbury. Later some 200,000
acres were staked so that it is probable that not less than half a million acres have been located up to
date. Only a few days ago the local
press told of a railway from the Pacific tide waters up the Naas and
through to Edmonton, there to connect with the Canadian Northern
Railway. Branch lines are also contemplated into the Naas from the
Skeena by way of the Kitsumkalum,
and from Stewart and the Bear River
country by way of Bitter Creek. Only this week particulars have been
published of the outfitting of a party to prospect the Naas for minerals
under the guidance of Mr. Joseph
Varin, and now the latest information If that Mr. J. S. Rear has succeeded In inducing the Dominion
Government under the direction of
their engineer, Mr. G. A. Keefer, to
blast out the rocks and boulders
which impede navigation In the Naas
so that small craft will be able to
navigate the river for a distance of
two hundred miles. Thus In one
short year has a new country been
practically discovered, and it is only
one of the many virgin tracts in the
northern part of British Columbia
which will within a few years become
settled and prosperous.
A court of revision and appeal
under the provisions of the "Assessment Act" and "Public Schools Act'

|    launching "Thunderer."    |
*********************■:•****
In the whole history of giant shipbuilding no launch has ever been
more skilfully planed or more successfully carried out than the launch
of the Thunderer at Canning Town.
It was arranged that at seventeen
minutes past three the huge bulk
should begin to move. Just as the
hand of the clock reached the quarter Mrs. Randall Davidson, wife of
the Archbishop of Canterbury, with
one smart cut severed a red, white
and blue rope and released the last
dog-shore. A great block, weighing
eight hundred weight fell and the
vessel was free of all impediment
Every eye watched her closely.
"She's moving!" the cry went up.
Then she stopped, moved again,
and at 3:17 exactly began to slide
with slow majesty towards the water.
It was an amazingly impressive
sight. The ship looked so enormous
that it had been hard to realize she
could move at all. When she did,
how could she be controlled? Would
she not break away and play havoc
with staging, derrick poles, everything? »
No, when she did move she moved
with dignified deliberation, as if she
knew exactly what she was doing.
One felt almost as if some great,
convulsion of nature were taking
place. With marvellous precision
she glided on, scarcely quickening
her pace at all.
Forty tons of grease at $50 a ton
had been put down to ease her progress. All the ingenuity and experience of Mr. Clement Mackrow and
his assistants in the designing department had been brought to bear
on the problem of getting her safely
Into the water. They had laid their
plans well. Without a jerk, without
a quiver, without a hitch, she
slipped down the 500-foot, incline
and was in the river before they had
recovered from tlie shock of seeing
her begin to move.
There was, of course, tremendous
cheering. The whole neighborhood
was black with people. Special trains
and moJ.or-coaches had brought two
thousand guests. East Loudon made
it a holiday and crowded every
possible point of vantage. It was a
mighty shout that went up. In tbe
excitement hats were waved wildly,
handkerchiefs fluttered, caps flung
into the air. Small cannon fired a
salute. A band played the National
Anthem. And from a big colored
paper lantern hung on the bows a
host of doves escaped, a pretty Japanese custom which the Thames Iron
Works did well to copy.
In the river the'Tliunderer looked
even more imposing and more vast
than she did In the yard. Her immensely powerful bows were now
for the first time properly seen.
No time was lost In attaching tugs
and she was soon towed away. For
the next twelve months she will be
at Dagenham, farther down the
river,  in process of completion.

LIQUOR REGULATIONS
The inadvisablllty of city councils
attempting to make regulations governing liquor licenses that are liable
to elash with the general acts, is
shown by the judgment given in another column, which was handed
down by Mr. Justice Gregory of the
Supreme Court. The councils of the
municipalities have powers enough
conferred upon them to regulate the
trade sufficiently without attempting to usurp powers not given them.
We have no sympathy with the
spirit which actuates a certain class
in every community to believe that
every appointee of a government is
a menace to tlie public interests.
License commissioners may be expected to have just as keen a desire
to work for the welfare of the community as the ctiy council has. The
insinuation that the situation Is different can only originate In little
minds.
 o	
.ALFALFA vs. ASPARAGUS
ulars have gone so far as to wire
brakemen to reserve bumqers for
them.
Many efforts have been made to
rid the railroads of tlie undesirables
but none of the cities and towns
along the line are willing to support
them. The consequences is that are
arrested, given ten minutes to leave
town, and then hurry to the railroad
statino and board an outgoing train.
If they are arrested at the next stop
the same proeeedure is foiled.
"Yes; I saw the statement," observed Mr. B. Baggage, literary director of the Clinker Club, an organization which numbers among
its members men who have a
speaking acquaintance with every
bumper in the country. "It only
goes to show the ingratitude of some
persons. The Lehigh Valley should
give our organization a vote of
thanks instead of a roast. The fact
that we are able to ride on the
trucks of their cars shows that the
roadbed is in good shape and is a
splendid advertisement."
"Are you going to make any reply to the charges?"
"I have been directed to file a
complaint with the Public Service
Commission. We had no intention of
doing so, but the companies have
forced our hand. A dozen of our
members have reported that they
rode all the way from Buffalo on
the front end of the first baggage
car, without being drenched by the
engineer. This it a plain violation
of the law."

POSSIBILITIES  OF AIRSHIPS
Alfalfa roots, white and tender,
will take the place of early asparagus if Louise F. Weiniand, an irrigation rancher in the Spokane Valley, is successful with her plans for
marketing the newest table vegetable in the western country.
Miss Weiniand, who came from
Pennsylvania last spring, broached
the enterprise to members of the
Spokane chamber of commerce and
several have promised to assist in
establishing a small cannery.
The discovery that alfalfa root is
nourishing to man as it is to live
stock was 'made by Miss Weiniand
several months ago, but the proper
method of preparing it, was not ascertained until a few days ago, when
the young woman, after poring for
hours in a huge tome on cookery,
decided to try recipes for cooking asparagus. Tbe first dish was sampled by a neighbor's hired man, who,
ignorant of what he was eating, j
called for a second dish. Other!
neighbors ate of the root and pro-i
nounred it satisfying to the palate
as well as highly nourishing. They
say the flavor is similar to aspara-l
Stis.
Wilbur  Wright's  Views  on  the  Situation  As  It Presents
Itself
TRAMPS ARE COSTLY
Railways Suffer to a Large Extent'
from tlie Fraternity of
the Road
Wilbur Wright, who is in Washington, thinks the world has grown
too optimistic about the possibilities
of travel by aeroplane, says the New
York Sun.
"It will be nearer 2,000 years
than two," said Mr. Wright, "when
we shall be able to fly from Washington to New York in an aeroplane
in two hours. Ii is almost impossible to estimate the speed that can
he attained by a flying machine. I
would undertake to build a machine
that could fly at the rate of 100
miles an hour, but I would not want
to operate it. Many years will
elapse before the aeroplane will be
used for transportation. It cannot
supply the requirements that are
furnished by railroads. Its greatest
use lies in the field of sports and
military operations. Flying through
the air is a great sport and no more
dangerous than automoblllng.
"The tragic deaths of Hoxsey and
Moisant, I presume, may retard the
development of the aeroplane to
some extent, but it will go forward.
Public sentiment and laws will minimize the danger of the flying machine. These influences will check
the recklessness  of the aviator."
If  member?  of the  tramp  fraternity could be persuaded to do bfisi-
ness wtih ticket offices the railroads
of the country would be $25,000,000
stronger  In  their sales  every    year.
The sum mentioned is what It costs
the companies  to  transfer  the  perpetual   motion   demonstrators     from
one community to another, according
to a statement issued by representa- j
fives of the various lines.    This does'
not include the wear and tear on the
bumpers and other parts of the roll-'
ing stock, which are favored by ad-;
vorates of fresh  air flight.
Tlie statement    declares    that    it
would be impossible to estimate the j
iiiuiunt  of  damage  done   to  private)
property along the  railroads by the
long distance surveyors.       Railroad
officials say the "hobo" may furnish
a, good  laugh to persons who follow
lis anlics in the comic supplements,
Bul  iliut lie has long since ceased to
3c a joke, so far as they are    con-1
eerned.    They say that at. times he
io  far  forgets  hlmse'f  as   to  insert,
Himself Into a loaded freight car and ]
-hat   in   Instances  too   numerous   to
mention  he has used a coupling pin
lo   impress   the   brakeman   with   his
Importance.
A determined effort, is to lie made
to discourage his peregrinations, and
;he authorities are to lie asked to
iend a hand In providing him with
a permanent residence in a restricted
neighborhood wliere his travels will
be limited to a few feet of space.
It is asserted that the Lehigh
Valley has received the bulk of his
patronage, and the officers of that
company say they are willing lo
tnrn It over to any other road for
the asking Notwithstanding the fact
(hat they have increased the police
and scattered signs about, their property forbidding familiarity with the
rolling stock, the tramps continue to
honor the  road.     Some  of  the  reg-
EXPLA1NS TRANSACTION
3.  3.  Warren   Refers  to  Incident  in
Fanner's Rank investigation
Mr. James J. Warren, president of
the Kettle River Valley Railway,
who also is general manager of the
Trusts and Guarantee Company of
Toronto, has been in Victoria. Interviewed with regard to the Farmer's Bank investigation, Mr. Warren said.
"Over four years ago the Trusts
Company, in conjunction with one of
the large life insurance companies,
loaned Mr. W. R. Tracers personally
$80,000 on the hypothecation by
him of certain promissory notes.
Only $26,000 of this amount was
contributed by the Trusts Company,
the remainder being advanced by the
life company. The loan was paid off
In   full  in  a  few  months'  time.
"Moreover, the Holes, the subject
of the hypothecation, were paid
practically In full and by the prom-
issors. It now develops that Travers
declared to the Finance Department
al Ottawa that the Farmers' Bank
had some $270,000 paid In cash by
slock subscribers, and that this declaration was untrue. It is admitted
that we did not know that he was
going to make such a declaration, or
that such a declaration was made.
From these simple facts, however, II
is suggested that technically we conspired with Travers. No one suggests that we, or that, I, got any of
the  moneys of  the  bank.
"The matter Is not taken seriously
In Toronto, as It Is recognized that
a money-lending Institution must be
able to lend money on ample security without being obliged to send a
policeman with the borrower to see
what he does  wtih  the money.'
GERM OF LEPROSY
tContinued from Page One)
as the '70s, and its discovery has
been announced from time to time
since, but the experiments were never carried to a conclusion. It was
fouud impossible to isolate and cultivate the germ and therefore to provide a serum. Now the experiment
has been carried to its full limit and
the remedy ought to be soon in
sight.
Drs. Duval and Couret experimented with fish, mainly gold fish.
They found that the germ rapidly
spread among them and the fish
showed no bad effects and swam as
comfortably as their brethren. Isolating tlie germ they found it very
long living, and through their discoveries learned the manner in
which the malady is propagated.
The habitat of the germ is not the
human body; that is, the disease
does not originate in man and is not
hereditary, as has often been believed. The human body is not well
adapted to it and the germ multiplies very slowly in it; in other
words the disease Is not easily communicated to man, as is generally
believed.
Most animals are safe from it,
and this fact puts the investigators
to a great deal of trouble. Guinea
pigs and rabbits, the usual standbys
o fthe laboratory in experiments of
this kind, were found to be immune.
The leprosy germs in them died the
moment after injection and left no
infection. Experiments with mon-
kept and mice proved more successful. In man the progress of the disease was found to be very slow indeed, but in fish very rapid.
Tbe conclusion reached was that
the original habitat of the disease
was fish and thSt it was" communicated originally to man by eating infected fish.

The Prince  Rupert of the Grand
Trunk Pacific fleet, the favorite vessel in this port, has again resumed
her run after a general overhauling.
It  was  generally  believed   that  she
bad been fitted up with oil burners
but  this proves to have been Incor-,
rect.    The  Prince Rupert still  uses i
coal as her fuel.    There have been J
some changes  made In  her    which
better fits the vessel for Its service
on the coast and the officers are very
p.roud of the vessel.
That she is in fine shape with
respect to the engine rooms is shown
by the fact that orders to go on tlie
run were not received by her officers until noon of the day she sailed
from Victoria. The equipment was
put in order on short, notice and
supplies taken on, and she sailed on
schedule time.
HERRING CATCH
Reports from Nanalmo state that
the herring fishing this seastn has
been so poor that many fishermen
will finish in debt, while others will
barely make expenses. It is said
that never in the history of the industry lias there been so disastrous
a season.
Approximately 7,000 tons of herring were caught and cured there
this season against 28,000 tons last
year and the season was almost six
weeks behind that of last year. Although appearing in big schools in
the Gulf of Georgia near Departure
Bay more than a month ago, tho fish
did not enter the harbor until two
weeks later and (then only small
catches were reported.
Fishermen attribute their bad
luck to the great depth at which the
herring schooled. When the fish finally entered Departure Bay and Pender Harbor from the Gulf of Georgia, they swam beneath the nets.
One fisherman, who was engaged in
the herring industry for more than
ten years attributes the poor run
and the depth at which the fish were
found to the increasing number of
gasoline launches continuously
cruising on Departure Bay and Pender Harbor. These noisy little
boats, it is said, frighten the fish
into deeper water beyond the reach
of the seines. Others attribute the
small catch to the decrease In the
number of whales. Whales feed upon herring, and during the fishing
season, it Is said, drive large schools
of the little fish into shallow harbors, where the big leviathans will
not venture.
Prices imaged from $1.50 to $1.65
for herring brought to the curing establishments this season.    This is a
slight increase over    last    season's
market figures.
After the fish are salted and cured
they are shipped to Seattle and Tacoma and transferred to outbound
liners for the Orient where the
product finds a ready market.

IN   THE   OMINECA
Active Work Will be Carried on
by Various Companies
This Summer
Some of the Corporations That Will
Operate in Testing the
Ground
Reference has from time to time
been made in these columns to the
opening up of the Omineca placer
and hydraulic operations as a result
of the building of the Grand Trunk
Pacific and the Improved means of
communication. A short time ago
The Journal referred to the parties
going in there this summer. The
Omineca Herald has further particulars, and says:
After a long period of comparative inactivity, it Is now certain that
the Omineca placers, which in years
gone by produced a large amount of
gold annually, and first drew atten
tion to the mineral resources of this
district, will soon resume a position
among the large producing camps.
A number of companies and syndicates composed of coast capitalists
have been recently formed to acquire
and work hydraulic ground in the
Omineca, and the representatives of
at least three of these concerns are
on their way to Hazelton, with the
intention of beginning operations as
soon as possible.
The first outfit to begin work will
be the Huderle-Otterson Company,
of Seattle. A party consisting of the
Manager, George W. Otterson, M. I.
M. E., a cook, and five miners, left
today for Manson creek, where the
company has acquired one and a half
miles of hydraulic ground which is
expected to yield big profits. The
party, augmented by Indian miners
who will be picked up enroute, will
at once begin preliminary work, and
Mr. Otterson expects to have everything in readiness for the opening of
the mining season about June 1, so
that the entire season will be productive.
The company has purchased the
hydraulic plant formerly used by the
St. Anthony Exploration Company
and E. J. Newberry, to which will
be added a hydraulic elevator, which
Is being taken in by toboggan. Supplies for the early part of the season will be taken over the toboggan
trail, while two pack trains will be
employed during the summer.
John Huderle is expected to arrive
In Hazelton about May 30, to take
part in the management of the company, which will expend about $15,-
000  on  the season's work.
Mr. Otterson, who is an experienced hydraulic miner, and prominent as a mining engineer, operated
in the Omineca from 1899 to 1901,
and is familiar with the district and
its possibilities. He states that the
ground acquired by the company, as
long as it could be worked by individual miners, paid $16 a day to the
shovel, from which it may fairly be
argued that properly directed hydraulic operationds will be highly
profitable. It is the opinion of Mr.
Otterson that a great deal of hy-
dralulr ground in the Omineca will
go at fifty cents a yard, and while
much o fit cannot be worked tinder
present conditions, with better transportation facilities it will yield handsome returns.
Among other properties which
will be worked this season is the
Silver creek dredging proposition,
preliminary work on which Is well
under way, and the Tom creek property formerly operated by Condit
Brothers and James May, which has
been acquired by G. F. Knowlton,
of Vancouver, who will probably
take a dredge in by the Tatla lake
route.
The Boulder creek syndicate has
prospected its ground, six miles below Huderle & Otterson, and will
take in n plant this year. Pending
its Installation, a ditch two and a
half miles long will bo run.
Tbesi outfits and others will
spend considerable money during the
coming season.

ARCHBISHOP'S   ESTATE
CONSOLIDATED  STATUTES
Attorney-General    Bowser   Explains
the Situation Before tlie
Legislature
Hon. Mr. Bowser, Attorney-General, with respect to the revision and
consolidation of the statutes, made
an explanation to the Legislature
before prorogation. The members
would remember, said the attorney-
general, that reference had been
made in his honor's speech from the
throne at the session's opening to
legislation which would be brought
down providing for the ratification
of the work In question. That work
had proven, however, more formidable than at first anticipated, and it
had been thought wise to give the
members of tlie revising and consolidating commission a little more
time. At the opening of the next
session of parliament, in January
next, the work would have been
rompleted and reviewed, and the
statutes as revised and consolidated
printed and ready for distribution to
the members. No hardship would be
entailed by this delay. It would
mean, indeed, that the consolidation
would Include also the statutes of
the province during the present session.
The revised and codified statutes
of the province would be comprised
in two volumes, in addition to which
there would be printed a special separate volume containing the statute
laws of England, which in the opinion of the commissioners, are now
applicable to this province, together
with sundry acts of a semi-public
nature, such as the Canadian Northern Pacific Act, the Esquimau Waterworks Company's Act, the Vancouver City Incorporation Act, and
a number of others; together -with a
list of all measures that have In past
years been enacted by this parliament, so that htese may be made
convenient for reference. Having in
view all these facts it had been
thought well that the legislation to
ratify the consolidation should not
be presented until the next session
of the House; they would be ready,
reviewed and printed, for the opening of that session.

CANADIAN COAL AND COKE
New .$12,000,1(00 Concern Will Con.
ti-ol  Big  Properties—Company Is Organized
Another big merger which has acquired and will operate a number of
the leading coal properties in the
Canadain west, was successfully organized at a meeting held in Montreal recently, says the Montreal
Gazette. The new company, which
is known as The Canadian Coal &
Coke Company, Limited, is capitalized at $12,000,000. The companies
in the merger are the Lethbridge
Collieries, Ltd., and the Pacific Pass
Coal & Coke Company, the St. Albert
Collieries, Ltd., and the Pacific Coal
Fields, Ltd. Some of the finest coal
properties in the west are owned by
these companies, and it is intended
to develop these on an extensive
scale.
At the meeting, Mr. H. K. Lovett,
K. C, was elected president, and Mr.
E. B. Greenshields, vice president of
the company. The directorate includes such prominent capitalists as
Hon. Senator Mackay, Rodolphe Forget, M. P.; C. H. Cahan, K. C; J. N.
Greenshields, K. C; J. W. McCon-
nell, Nat Curry, J. P. Ross and A. H.
Cook.
The basis of the merger provides
that the shares of the old, companies
will be exchanged for shares of a
like par value in the new company.'
The new company will have the option of exchanging its bonds, oond
for bond, with those of the merged
companies or paying par for the
bonds of the merged companies
which carry 50 per cent bonus of the
common  stock  received   with   them.
The new shares are pooled for a

time at the direction of a committee
for the pro rata benefit of all shares
deposited and with the right to any
subscriber to withdraw his shares
from sale.

USEFUL   HINTS
When boiling something which*
boils easily, place a stick of wood
across the top of the vessel, and It
simply can't boll over; try it and
see. Exceptionally large vessels use
two sticks.
If you object to the thick, hard
crust on baked potatoes, put a dish
of cold water In the oven when they
are being baked. The moisture will
do much toward keeping tlie skin of
the potato soft.
Bathe chilblains in very hot water , as hot as can lie borne, and
rub well with paraffin and mustard
and they will soon disappear. This
remedy has been tried with success
when other remedies failed.
In making sandwiches bear in
mind that, all crusts are removed
with a sharp knife, and tnat butter
just melled but not piping hot, can
lie spread with a fine paint brush
much better than firmer butter with
a knife.
Hard water is rendered soft and

IMPORTANT DECISION
Mr. Justice Cregory Gives Judgement
in Liquor By-Law
Case.
City's Powers With Respect to Reg.
illations Is Not AH
Powerful
That the Victoria city bylaw, the
Liquor Regulation bylaw, contravenes the spirit of the Provincial
Liquor Act, 1910, and that hotel and
restaurant proprietors have a legal
right to sell liquor with meals at any
hour instead of being restricted tu
certain hours a, set forth in tie iy-
law was the gist of an Important
dec!?: '. handed down recently by
Mr. .iiistice Gregory in the supreme
court. His lordship decided against
the city in the appeal of J, Levy, of
Levy's Restaurant, Victoria, who
was arraigned in the police court on
a charge of having supplied a customer with liquor with his meals between the hours of 12 o'clock in the
evening and 7 o'clock in the morning. The defendant was fined by
Magistrate Jay and appealed.
Mr. Justice Gregory held that the
bylaw had been passed in defiance of
the spirit of the provincial legislation regulating the liquor traffic.
His Judgment in full was as follows:
"This Is an appeal by way of a
case stated from a conviction of the
police magistrate of the city of Victoria, who convicted Mr. Levy of
having sold liquor in his restaurant
between the hours of 12 o'clock on
Tuesday night and 7 o'clock on
Wednesday morning, the 16th of
November, 1910, contrary to the pro
visions of bylaw 736.
"In dealing with liquor licenses
and tbe right to sell liquor, the legislature has clearly distinguished between saloon licenses and hotel and
restaurant licenses. The Liquor Act,
1910, section 74, authorizes the closing of saloons on Sunday, etc., but
provides that those provisions of the
act shall not apply to hotel and restaurant keepers supplying liquor to
their guests in a dining room with
bona fide meals. The liquor supplied in the present instance was
supplied to a guest in the dining
room and with a regular bona fide
meal. The bylaw does not attempt
to prohibit a similar transaction if
it had taken place on Sunday. In so
far as the bylaw attempts to prohibit the supplying of liquor with
meals on week days it appears to me
to circumvent the provisions of the
Liquor Act and to be made In defiance of the spirit of the legislation
in the matter of the regulation of
the liquor traffic. A somewhat sim
liar attempt was made on a previous
occasion with reference to the clos
ing of hotel bar rooms, etc. See
In re Maloney, 13 B. C, 194.
"I am unable to distinguish this
case from the principle laid down by
the full court in the Maloney case,
and the suggestion of the ctiy solicitor that subsection (d) of section
74 of the Liquor Act, 1910, provides that the municipal council
shall have power to make and enforce other restrictions and prohibited hours than those provided for in
the Municipal Clauses Act, cannot be
sustained, because that subsection is
a part of section 74 which by subsection (c) it is declared shall not
apply to restaurant keepers in the
position herein of Mr. Levy.
"Since the council has no authority under the Municipal Clauses Act
by reason of the decision in re Maloney, and none under the Liquor
Act by reason of the provisions of
that act itself, it follows such authority, if It exists, must be derived
from some other source. I know
of none and none has been suggesled
by counsel for the city. The- question submitted will therefore have to
be answered in the affirmative, I. e.,
the determination of the police magistrate was erroneous in point of
law."

Frank Martin passed through Kit-

weeks when he will leave for his
camp at the head of Bear or Susk-
wa river and get everything in ship
shape for an active season's development work on his property, says the
Inland Colonist. Together with
Messrs/ Davis and Thompson of
Hazelton, he owns the Buckskin
group of claims situated near the
head of Bear river in the Babines,
and about eighteen miles southeast
of Hazelton. On this group there
are two veins each two feet wide on
the surface. Values received from
the many samples sent out while last
summer's work was being done, held
their average of $25 to $26 In gold
on the one vein, and around $36 in
silver on the other.   .
Last summer he ran a drift on
the one vein, values holding with
every foot, and the coming summer
he Will go lower down and run a
second drift. The vein this work
was done on is the vein from which
the gold asays were obtained. This
vein is a true fissure, anH cuts diagonally across the formation for a
distance of 800 feet, when it intersects with the vein giving the silver
assays, and which Is a contact vein,
contacting with an altered granite

"Now, children," said the teacher,
"supposing a big fierce tiger were
to sieze one of your playmates in
its hunger and carry him off,
what would you do?"
There was no reply. Half the
youngsters were wishing it was
dinner time, and the other half
wished for nothing more fervently
than such a tiger would devote Its
attenttion to teachers who asked
foolish questions.
"Come Thomas," she she said
"Wouldn't you cry for help?"
"No, mum," said Thomas promptly. "Please, mum, mother always
says we should'nt never speak at
mealtimes, please, mum."
"Do you know what father would
have done if he had caught me
doing such a thing?" asked an irate
father of his youthful son; and then
he went on to describe the penalties that would have been inflicted.
The latter did not consider the
situation at all alarming, and said in
a jocular manner: "You must have
had a pretty bad father."
This cool, sarcastic manner nettled the parent all the more, and
he exclaimed: " Well, sir, I want
you to distinctly understand that
1 had a better father than you'll
ever have.
Then he felt he had somewhat
spoiled his ease, and he walked out
of the room.
The Standard of Empire In a late
edition has a reference to Premier
McBride, which shows that the first
minister of British Columbia is in
the public eye far beyond the confines of his native province, or even
of the Dominion of Canada. It is
the hope of many of his admirers
in the west that Mr. McBride may return from the coronation with
knighthood. The prominence he is
attaining in the pol'tical world
would warrant such recognition
which would reflect an honor upon
the province as well as upon the recipient.
The Standard of Empire says:
The Premier of British Columbia,
the Hon. Richard McBride, has long
since "arrived," to far as the life of
his own beautiful Province is concerned, where his position of late
has resembled that of another famous Richard in New Zealand, the
late  "King  Dick"   Seddoo.
There Is no man in British Columbia who has so great a hold upon the
affection and esteem of the whole
populace of the Province as Premier
McBride. But will British Columbia
be able permanently to retain its
Premier's services, within its own
mountain frontiers? That is an interesting question, and one not easy
to answer. In any case, Mr. McBride,
young still, and full of vital energy
and force, is unmistakably one of
the coming men, where the Dominion as a whole is concerned. Apart
from his other more important qualities, he has the personality, the air,
the manner and appearance of a
leader of men, of a statesman of the
front rank. One feels after one's
meeting with him, that here is a
man who, though he has gone far
already, will assuredly go much farther. He is richly endowed with the
subtle quality which, for lack of a
better name, is called personal magnetism.
Premier McBride is a mighty traveller, so far at all events as the trails

PHYSICALLY DEFECTIVE
VANCOUVER—One of the most
interestin gexperiments ever made in
connection with education in Canada
will receive its first practical trial at
the Central school, Vancouver. All
the children who are handicapped
physically or from nervous affections are being gathered into a class
where they will receive the tender
care of a qualified nurse who has
also been trained as a teacher. She
has been making a study of the
method adopted in teaching these
children in Seattle, and will begin
work at the Central school.
DRINKING FOUNTAINS
VANCOUVER—Among the innovations that will be Introduced in
the schools of the city in the near
future are drinking fountains. A
thirst of knowledge is not the only
one developed in a basketball game
or a strenuous and dramatic reproduction of an Indian attack on Dead-
wood Dick's coach, such as was put
on with great effect by some small
gentlemen in a city play ground recently. So the latest and most hygienic fountains will shortly be
bubbling in all the big educational
buildings.

LARGE  PAVING ORDERS
VICTORIA — Bids are asked by
the city for 400,000 square yards of
street construction and asphalt paving, or, in all, nearly twelve miles
of roadway. The work is approximately one-half of that which the
city will order during this year. It
is the largest contract for street paving ever called for by the city officials. The streets which will be benefitted by the large contract are
Burnside road from Douglas street
to Washington avenue; Bay street
from Douglas to Bridge street; Douglas street from Flsguard to Pembroke street; Douglas street from
Pembroke street to Hillside avenue;
Douglas street from Humboldt to
Superior; Pandora avenue between
Douglas and  Vancouver streets.
BURNED IN  BUILDING
NANAIMO—Fire recently completely destroyed Cedar District Institute, and among tbe ruins were
found the charred remains of what
is supposed to have been a man.
There was no possible chance to save
the building, which was soon a mass
of flames and quite beyond the control of the fire fighters. There was
no thought at the time of any one
being in tlie building, and it was
only after the fire had burned out
and some of those gathered around
were going through the ruins that
the ghastly remains of what is supposed to have been a man were
found. There was no direct evidence as to who the man was, but
he is supposed to have been a Norwegian who for the past few weeks
has been working on a farm in the
district. This man lias been missing
for a couple of days and it is thought
that he strayed into the institute
and in some way inadvertenely set
the building on fire. The remains
were brought into town. The provincial police are working on the
case to establish, if possible, the
identity of the unfortunate man.

COAL MINE SUIT
VICTORIA—The suit of Mr. Eph-
raim Hodgson against Messrs. John
Arbuthnot, J. M. Savage, J. C. Mc-
Gavin, W. J. Moran and S. H. Reynolds, of Winnipeg, for 2,260 shares
worth $225,000 of the Pacific Coast
Coal Company, which has 18,000
acres of coal lands and operates two
mines at South Wellington and Su-
qitash, has been settled and the com
pany reorganized, the interests of
tlie defendants in the suit being taken over.
At the reorganization meeting Mr.
John P. Hartman was appointed
chairman of the board; C. C. Miche-
ner, Victoria, president and managing director; Mr. L. D. Wlshard, New
York, vice president; Dr. Chas. C.
Kimball, New York, second vice
president; Mr. J. F. Mosby, New
York, secretary-treasurer, and Mr. C.
H. Robertson, Victoria, and Mr. R.
H. Thompson, City Engineer of Seattle, directors.
The company intends to double the
output of the mines near Boat Harbor as soon as another mine can be
opened and equipped. At Stiqiiash
a complete shipping plant is to be
put in.
The suit compromised by this reorganization made many allegations
against Arbuthnot and other defendants of conspiring to withhold the
2,250 shares from Hodgson, who secures his stock in settlement.
CANNOT VOTE
VICTORIA—That holders of property under agreement to purchase
cannot vote at the forthcoming election for mayor and aldermen, even If
they pay the taxes on the property,
is the opinion of the city solicitor
given at the last meeting of the city
council. They cannot even vote as
householders.
The solicitor stated that where a
man, under agreement of sale is paying the taxes on the property he is
not entitled to pay, nor Is the city
entitled to receive, the road tax. But
by virtue of his holding under an
agreement of sale he cannot vote as
a property owner only the registered
owner of the land is entitled to vote.
This registered owners' list will be
made up as of January 12.
Alderman Langley pointed out
that the preparation of the property
owners' list is now under way and
he believed there would be a large
number of names of dead persons on
the list as in a number of instances
the registered owners have died and
no change in the records has as yet
been made.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier laid on the
table of the House of Commons last
week the fourth report of the Alaska
Boundary Commission, which was
authorized by the Washington Convention of 1906. The report, which
is signed on behal fof Canada by Mr.
W. F. King, and on behalf of the
United States by Mr. C. H. Tittman,
states that the boundary work has
been completed between Katashat
Ridge and the Yukon River. A line
was traced from a point forty miles
north of the crossing of the Porcupine River. One hundred and fifty-
seven miles of line projecting was
done. The distance monumented
was 146 miles and the number of
monuments placed was forty-nine.
A brick pincushion will prove to
be a great convenience for the sewing table. Cover a clean brick with
flannel or cretonne and pad the top
for a pincushion. Being broad and
heavy it will not be easily knocked
over, and may be used to hold down
paper patterns.

LAST   YEAR
REAL ESTATE OWNERS IN
Western   Canada
.MADE
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures
obtainable, over One Hundred Million Dolars was made by real estate
owners In growing cities and towns
ni Western Canada last year. This
vast wealth was exclusive of improvements ami represented actual
increase in land values alone.
Original records gathered hy tlie
Winnipeg  Free   Press  prove  that  In
eight Western Canadian Cities the
value of land alone—not counting
improvements—increased 562 per
cent for the last five years—an annual Increase of 112 per cent for
each city during the last five years.
These figures Indicate that Investments In live, growing cities In Western Canada are as safe and sure as
an investment can lie, and that 100
per cent profit each year Is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THEY   WILL   UNDOUBTEDLY
MAKE $10(1,(1110,000 MORE
You have an oportunity now to
participate in these Immense profits

WAV DIVISION POINTS
WATROUS,  MELVILLE,  WAIN-
WRKil IT, B1GGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing Division Points and in the town-
site of Tofleld an opportunity for the
investor to share in the large profits
that are sure to accrue as a result
of the rapid and substantial growth
that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division Points and well located
cities and towns In Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not
offer townsites or additions so located as to make investments in them
of questionable value. The object In
sidling these lots at the low prices
at which they are offered Is to encourage the upbuilding of theBe cities from which the Grand Trunk
Pacific will derive vastly more benefit than  from  the sale of lots.
Now Is the time to buy. Choice
lots range from $100 upwards on
easy payments of 10 per cent cash
and 10 per cent a month. You make
your purchase direct and secure title
from the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company. Write for literature

possibilities unlimited.    Address
