INSPECTION TOUR
B. B. Kelliher Chief Engineer of the
C.T.P. is at the
Front.
He   Will   Note the Conditions  Along
Hie Route of Line as Far
As Hazelton,
There is little doubt but what the
tour which B. B. Kelliher, the
chief engineer of the Q. T, P., is now
making among the various camps between the end of rails and Hazelton
has to do with a plan which the company has of hurrying work, It is
generally known that E. J. Chamberlin, the general manager of the company, is becoming somewhat impatient as to the rate of progress that
is being made, and Mr. Kelliher will
possibly take steps to see that considerably more work is done this
winter than might otherwise be the
case. In several places it is likely
night shifts will be put on so that
the work may be the more quickly
carried out. The chief engineer will
visit the site of the big bridge near
Hazelton, which the company wishes
to see in shape early for the superstructure. Mr. Chamberlin when
here a few weeks ago expressed a
strong desire to see that there was
no delay occasioned to the company
in the spring in getting right on with
the track laying.
Mr. Mehan, the general superintendent on the coast, who returned
to the city a few days ago after going up the line with Mr. Kelliher as
far as the rails are laid, found conditions very much changed from the
week before. Mild weather has
again set in and the river, which was
almost frozen across, has again become clear of ice. The snow had
disappeared in many quarters.
Mr. Mehan reports that good progress is being made on the snow
sheds. . The "Y" at the end of the
track has been put in so that the
locomotives can be turned.
There is a steady enquiry, the general superintendent says, from people wanting to use the line. The
company is not yet in a position to
do anything In the way of giving a
regular service and has not permission to do so from the Department of
Railways at Ottawa. It may be that
a little later on some move may
be made to allow of a service. It
is surprising the number of people,
he says, that are going into the different parts along the line to settle. The coming summer, lie ex-
lied s, will see quite a decided rush
Into these districts. To Mr. Mehan's
mind, there is no reason why some
very line agricultural sections should
not be opened up, giving rich returns
to the settlers. The soil looks goo'd
and the market will be a very rich
one.
Last week Mr, Mehan was able to
help the mail carrier out with the
sacks for up the river. The mail
was taken up by the train as far
the end of the line, thereby effecting a great saving to the contractor.
There is no arrangement for doing
this, the act being one of courtesy
by the official of the company, who
is anxious to assist the residents of
the interior and get them mall as
expeditiously as possible.

BRODEUR TO RETIRE
ALU. MOULEY'S SMOKER.
Minister of Marine Spoken of as Successor to Sir Louis Jette
on Bench.
Dr.  Belaud  Is in   Line foi'  Elevation
to Cabinet   Hunk  at
Ottawa.
(Special to The Journal.)
Ottawa, Dec. 20.—Sir Louis Jette,
chief justice of Quebec, will retire
with full superannuation allowance
shortly and it Is understood he will
be succeeded by Hon. L, P. Brodeur,
minister of marine and fisheries, as
head  of the Quebec bench.
Dr. Beland, member for Beauce, is
in line for the vacancy, which will
be caused by the, retirement of Hon.
Mr. Brodeur.
A small shack close to the Premier
hotel was completely destroyed by
fire last evening.
Campaign   for  Mayoralty  Candidate
Opened—Mayor   Stork   Chairman.
In the rooms of Alderman Mob-
ley's central committee, on the
ground floor of the Mclntyre block,
on Friday evening. A gathering of
the supporters of Mr. Mobley for the
office of mayor of the city next year
was held. The meeting took tiie
form of a smoker and was well attended. At the conclusion of the
meeting organization was completed,
when Mayor Stork took the position
of permanent chairman, while F. G.
Dawson, who conducted the campaign for Mayor Stork last year was
appointed to act as permanent manager.
The speeches delivered at the meeting were more of a critical character
as to Mr. Manson's candidature than
of a constructive nature. Mayor
Stork took occasion to attack the
men and the papers that had been
criticising him and his friends in the
coiulcitl. He spoke highly of the
proposed basis of settlement with the
G. T. P. and thought that both sides
ought to be satisfied with it.
Alderman Lynch spoke in favor of
Mr. Mobley, and contended that Mr.
Manson was not a financier.
Alderman Mobley in a short speech
spoke of the Immense works that
there were to carry on in the city
and his readiness to do his best in
the interests of the city if elected to
the office of mayor for 1911. He took
exception to Mr. Manson's method
of dealing with the G. T. P. proposition. It was impossible to handle
the question except by referring it
to the people.
 o	
TO LAY MAIN TRACK
Superintendent Mehan is Having Road
Bed in City Limits Put
in Shape.
Will Soon Have the Permanent Line
of Ralls in Place and Rond
I tall listed.
General Superintendent Mehan, of
the G. T. P., is busily engaged preparing for the laying of what will
be the main track of the line into
the city and through the station yard
on ln the direction of, Seal cove and
the yardage sites intervening. He
lias had the location of the line surveyed close to the different cuttings
and within a few days the laying of
the steel will begin. The route takes
it close up to the black of the Inn
and to the engineering department's
old building. It will be continued
on across Centre street and tlience
on past the Government wharf.
The various sidetracks will all be
located between this main line and
tiie waterfront. This will be true
for the present at least. Later the
rock bluff on which the Inn stands
will probably be removed back to
where the temporary locomotive
shed is being built and the area concerted Into a passenger siding alongside the large permanent station
house which Is in contemplation.
While all the details In connection
with this station have not been worked out It Is expected that It will
cover the lower part of Centre street
ns well as the ground occupied by
the Inn and the engineer's department. This will necessitate the moving of Centre street over near the
Kelly-Douglas company's new building or the merging of it into First
avenue, which could be diverted to
serve the needs of the terminals..
The rock cutting has been finished
along the route of the main line and
the dredging outfit has been moved
lo a clay bank farther out. A few-
days will suffice to complete what Is
to be done there and .then it will be
put into commission on a sand bluff
a short distance out. The waste
from them will be brought into the
central part and deposited on the
rock filling about Centre street to
form the foundation for the permanent ballasting that will be put on.
Aid. Mobley, at last evening's
council meeting, stated that in view
of the fact that Christmas was approaching, lie felt that a share of
the wages due employees of the city
should be paid. He moved that 50
per cent, of the amount due for December should be paid all those who
wished it.    The motion carried.

M.   KING  IS   DEAD
Well Known Investor on the Coast Dies
From Injuries Received in
Woods.
Deceased Was Interested in Railway
Project to Connect City With
Poit Simpson.
Victoria, Dec. 20.—Mike King, the
well known timber operator, died on
Sunday at the Royal Jubilee hospital
as the result of injuries sustained
during a recent cruise to the north
end of Vancouver Island. He was
60 years of age. He was a native
of .Michigan. The deceased leaves
a widow, a son and a daughter.
Mr. King was one of the best
known timber and mining men on
the coast. He was one of the principal promoters of the Prince Ruperl
& Port Simpson railway which is
projected to connect the points
named and surveys in connection
with the charter of which are now
under way. He was also interested
in mining ventures In Mexico, where
he spent a year or two.
The injuries which resulted in his
death were not thought to be serious
in themselves at first. He however
had to drag himself along to camp
after being hurt and persisted In
treating   the  accident   lightly.

The Ladies Aid of the Presbyterian
church will hold a sale of candy and
Christmas hand cooking tomorrow

At the meeting of the city council
last evening the subject of printing
came up for consideration to some
little extent.
Aid. Hilditch explained that he
had no telephone directory. He wanted to know why they could not get
these telephone directories. He was
under the impression that the printing was being done by tender. He
wanted to know why this delay followed.
Aid. Pattullo said this never came
before the financial committee.
Aid. Smith, of tiie telephone committee, said that he had instructed
Mr. Love to get the directories out
by getting advertising for theril to
reduce the cost of them.
Aid. Mobley explained that Mr.
Love had found it impossible to get
any printing place to take up the
proposition. Finally, Mr. Love had
got The Optimist to do the work
for $70.
Aid. Smith said this was something that he did not know about.
This must have come up at. a subsequent meeting at which he was nol
present.
Aid. Mobley said it had not come
up at a subsequent meeting. The
arrangements had been made.
Aid. Hilditch said he took it for
granted that all contracts were let
by tender.'
The city clerk said that was so
with respect to all large jobs. In
smaller ones he sometimes inquired
of the different places and for rush
work had it done by distributing it
among the different offices.
Aid. Hilditch then asked if tenders had been called for the printing
of the building bylaw.
Aid. Pattullo said that on that he
had given instructions to have this
done at The Optimist on the score
that they had had very little printing..
Aid. Hilditch referred to the editorial of The Optimist which said
that it did most of the printing for
the city council.
Aid. Pattullo said this was not so.
A copy of The Optimist being produced, Alderman Hilditch read from
it tiie statement thai il did the most
of the printing. Aid. I'altuiio subsided.
Tin. question of whether a charge
should be made for copies of the
bylaw cam,, up, when Aid. Smith
asked whal it cost to print these bylaws, hiu an answer was not forthcoming.
Aid. Mobley did not think it would
bo advisable to charge for any of
these bylaws. He did not believe
that these should be wasted but he
thought that those who needed
them should get them.
Aid, N'aden said that If the practice of the Provincial Government
was followed they would charge for
It. He thought perhaps B nominal
fee of   25   cents   would   be  advisable
in order to prevent waste.
On motion of Aid. I.nyeh it was
decided to sell the bylaws at 26 cents
a copy.
The Voters' l.isis.
Later the purchasing agenl asked
If be should call for lenders for Ihe
printing of the voters' lists.
Aid. Hilditch said thai be fell thai
i lie voters' list  should  be printed  in
nil  three  papers  for <   night   so
so thai the public might be in a position to know whether their names
were on or not.
Aid. Pattullo felt that if the list
was to lie printed In the papers it
should he published in only one paper, the one which had the contract
for city advertising. He felt tbat
it. would lie a waste of money to have
ii printed at all.
The motion to call for tenders for
the printing of the lists carried.
Aid. Hilditch thes moved that the
list be printed in The Journal..
Aid. I'altuiio was opposed to this.
He thoughl the printing of the lists
would suffice,
Aid, Hilditch said lie had no objection if ii was provided that the
voters' list was lo be in the city
hall by December 26.
After consideration, il was decided
hi call for the lists being printed by
December 31.

HOME RULE ASSURED
Lloyd George Gives Audience That Br!*
ish Covernment Will Act
Quickly.
Other  Parts  of  Great  Britain   May
Be Given Local Self Government Also.
It seems to be the policy of the
British Government to take early
stetps to introduce legislation providing for Home Rule for Ireland.
The words of Lloyd George also indicate that local self government for
other parts of Great Britain may also
be included in the scheme.
Lloyd George, answering hecklers
during his campaign shed some new
light on  the ministerial  plans.
"If the Liberals are returned
when do they intend to introduce a
Home Rule bill?" asked a heckler.
The chancellor replied: "I hope we
will introduce it at the first available moment, toe have no intention
of shirking Home Rule. It is absolutely essential for the efficiency of
the Imperial Parliament. It Is not
merely extending self government to
Ireland. Wales wants self government. Scotland wants self government, toe are treading on each
other's toes in Parliament. and not
doing any work because the Imperial
Parliament looks after matters
which are beneath the attention of
many a county council. That is very
bad business. After disposing of the
veto of the Lords the first thing will
be to reconstruct our present Imperial machinery in such a way as
to free the Commons from trivial
local and provincial detail? which
can be attended to so much better
in tiie districts concerned. This will
leave Parliament untaxed for the
purpose of attending lo the immense
Imperial questions that are awaiting
consideration."  (Cheers.)
"But may there not be persecution
of Protestantst by the Roman Cath-
ofiies in Ireland?" asked the questioner.
Lloyd eorge answered: "There is
not, the slightest danger in these days
of religious persecutions. The Lls-
ternien persecuted the Roman Catholics in the past, and tlie Ulstermen
are now afraid, remembering their
record, that there may vindictive
measures on the part of the Roman
Catholics. Those were the dark days
of the past. There is not the faintest doubt in the mind of any one
who knows Ireland and .knows the
Roman Catholics that they intend to
conduct the government of the country in the interests of the nation as
a whole and not in the interests of
any section." (Cheers.I
Lloyd George,, answering other
questions, said if the Liberal party
had what he called an adequate majority the House of Lords question
would be settled, once for all.. If the
Lords' own proposals for reform
were, when fully disclosed, better
proposals than the i lo' ernment's
proposals there was no reason why
the Governmenl should accept
theirs, but meanwhile, he added,
"we are going to lake just as much
ns our majority will allow us In that
respect,"
different from anything I have ever
know before. 1 like it. 1 am going
to use it and introduce it in Russia
and throughout all Europe. It is full
•'' possibilities. The life and intensity of it appeal to me very strongly.
"What I intend to do with it is" to
take it to Russia and develop it,
have it carefully worked out. I will
have a great and beautiful ballet
made of it, a ballet that will astonish
the world. You wait and see. That
is a wonderful dance I have seen that
is original, in which there is no evidence of borrowing from someone
else, Such dances are rare, and I
feel that I have made a discovery
here."
It happened after a Russian dinner
at the St. Francis. After the dinner
several prominent society people
called upon ihe dancers and they partook in the festivities. Several impromptu dances were held, with Mr.
Greenbauin as the pianist. Several
solos were played by Count Centen-
anl, who is a musician of unusual
ability.
.Mordkin gave illustrations of how
cigarettes are smoked by Americans,
Englishmen and Frenchmen. Then
he showed how Europeans of variou
usationalities eat lunch.
"How do Americans eat?" somebody asked.
Mordkin jumped to the table,
pulled out his watch in an excited
manner and put it beside his plate.
"Here, waiter!" he exclaimed, "I
have just fiVe minutes for lunch!
Hurry up!"
The tour of Chinatown and the
Barbary coast folowed the dinner.

Two possible sites at Point Grey
for the provincial university were Investigated b'y Premier McBride and
a number of other members of his
staff last  week.
Afterwards it was stated by Hon.
Thomas Taylor, minister of public
works, and Hon. Dr. Young, minister
of education, that nothing definite
had been resolved upon.
The sites there were yesterday the
subject of close attendtion and one
of wliich is practically certain to be
chosen for the principal educational
institution west of the Rockies, were
the Government land at the extreme
tip of Point Grey, which is circuited
by the Marine drive and standing
high, affords a comanding view of a
magnificent sweep of water. It is
undoubtedly, in many ways, an ideal
position In which to place a graceful building. This property Is dk>-
scribed on municipal maps as D. L.
140.
The other site adjoins D. L. 2027
and is adjacent to the Indian reserve
overlooking the North Arm of the
Fraser  river.
Superintendent Argue, of the Vancouver school board, had a long conference with the minister of education when the latter relurned from
ins '.isii to the sites, but ii had
i.o reference to the university's position. Mr, Argue declared thai lie
understood that the property contiguous to the Indian reservation had
been practically decided upon, but
he heard nothing new or definite on
tiie subject.

HISTORIC   ROADWAY
Cariboo Route Along Fraser May Be Restored as Outing
Way.
Premier McBride Has  in  View  Improvements to Allow Autos to
Pass Along It.
Premier McBride, as the result
probably of an election tour
through his former constituency of
Yale, has in mind tentative plans
which no doubt will favorably commend themselves to his public works
minister for the repair of some of
the old Cariboo road so that an ideal
circular motoring route of approximately 126 miles may be laid out
with very little additional road mileage, in the country of the Fraser
Canyon, a drive that for the unfolding of majestic scenery will outrival
any on the American continent.
Briefly, the plan is to reconstruct
the historic old Cariboo road for that
section lying between Lytton and
Ashcroft, a distance of about forty
miles. The Canadian Pacific railway
now skirts the eastern bank of the
river. At a height varying from
forty to one hundred feet abovet high
water mark, for most of the distance, the remains of the old Cariboo trail may be seen from along the
car windows, winding along the base
of the cliffs and in many instances
within a few feet of the water.
Lytton is the point at which the
Fraser and the Thompson river converge. From here it is proposed to
strike west to the town of Lillooet,
which also lies on the Fraser forty-
eight miles above and by way of
Marble Canyon, Hat Creek, Cache
Creek and the eastern bank, back to
the initial point, a total distance for
the scenic circle or not more than
120 or 150 mfles of as wonderful
mountain scenery as is anywhere to
be found. The streams abound with
fish and the sunny river slopes at
various points contain many fins
farms which give to the majestic
mountain scenery a unique pastoral
touch.
"In a few years British Columbia
will be catering continuously to
thousands of tourists who will come
here looking for a good time much
as they go to Southern California
today," said the premier. "A magnificent automobile district for the
sightseer, the fisherman, and the
camera folk, as is provided in the
canyons of the Fraser and Thompson rivers, will constitute an attraction that will be worth millions to
the people of this province."

II' the words attributed to Aid.
Mobley al the smoker given in his
Interest last Friday evening are correctly reported in liis organ the mayoralty candidate is pursuing very
questionable tactics at the very outlet of his campaign. We have followed the remarks of Mr. Manson
very closely in connection with the
G. T. P. matter and we have never
found him advocating the taking of
this question in any way out of the
hands of the electorate. His words
have been most unequivocal upon
this point. He has maintained that
there must of necessity be an appeal
in the final instance to the people.
The attitude of Mr. Manson is in
fact one of appealing directly to the
people on all matters in which the
finances of the city are to be affected.
According to the report of Mr.
Mobley's speech in The Optimist,
which surely would not misrepresent
nis stand, it is made to appear that
the attitude of Mr. Manson is to
take the matter out of the hands of
the electorate and settle it in some
other way. This is absolutely misleading. .Mr. Manson advocates the
geii.ing inio negotiation with the
>; 'I'. P. and when an agreement is
reached which is favorable io the

SCANDALOUS  ACTION.
A liui" discussion thai arose at
the mi   ■ ii    ouncil lasl even
ing   sei i 'il   "•   reveal   a   disgraceful
lion   of   affairs   in   connection
wiiii  tiie riiy printing.
\ ,■ would like to take the most
(heritable \ lew of the situation possible and to borrow the expression
of a wel] known alderman, ascribe
the actions of aide: men concerned
'ne to "crass Ignorance." In
view, however, of the fact that there
are several members of the council
whi ■ -li.-r. ■■ had considerable experi-
*euce in public life we are precluded
(ron    a king thai  view.
The situation created constitutes a
positive   -caudal   and   one  which   no
public man should  allow himself to
i ide a  party to.
The position of affairs in brief is
thai The Optimist, according to Aid.
Pattullo's own words last evening,
got very little or the city printing
up to the time it changed hands.
Al'ier a change of townership took
place and when members of the council became financially interested in
the business practically all the city
printing was p.ut into The Optimist
office.
An attempt was made last evening
co make it appear that competition
was allowed before the work was
so given to the concern in which
certain members of the council hold
less than a quarter interest. There
tiis a wrong impression conveyed
altogether on that score. With respect to the directory for the telephone The Journal at least was
never asked for a price. With respect
to. the building bylaw Aid. Pattullo
,ook full responsibility and stated he
Bave ii in the Optimist because that
jfflce had not received much of the

heartily ashamed. If any of thest)
were misled into it they should put
themselves right with the public at
the earliest opportunity. A continuation of ibis vicious principle is calculated io lead to all kinds of abusen
in civic administration. Any one who
condones such actions is unlit lo represent the people of the city.
If this method can he pursued in
any one line it can be done in every
avenue of city business. The result
win he thai the administration of
affairs here will be in the hands ot
an oligarchy. Immediate steps will
be taken we are sure by the electorate to stamp out any such move.

RED CLIFF CLOSES.
Consternation   Reported   al   Stewart
Consequent Upon Operators
Ceasoing.
Like a bolt from the blue skies
conies the news of the closing down
of the Red Cliff mine, says The Portland Canal Miner. Thursday morning, an hour after the men had been
at work, Superintendent E. B. Webster issued orders to cease and the
employees, some forty in number,
were handed their pay checks. From
those who have reached town nothing authoritative can be ascertained
as to the causes leading to the sudden cessation of work. The long uiii-
nel was in over 1,450 feet, and for
the hist thirty feel the drills had
been working in the highest grade
of copper-gold ore discovered on the
property.
On la- ay, President A. Er-
:ine    Smith,    Vice-President   to.   J.
Bowen   and   Director  Frank   Wilcox
arrived here on the Camosun, and a
sensational  ride  to  the  mine, twelve
miles dl   an     was undi . a!  whil
the g l ship swung to her moorings awaiting the return of Messrs.
Smith and Wilcox lo take them
south. Pi esident Smi1 i -. - i ra
mensely delighted with the showing
but gave no intimation thai work
would he stopped. On Tuesday, Vice-
Presidenl Bowen reached Stewart in
time to catch the sounth-bound Cet-
I'iana and everything apparently was
moving along splendidly. No Instructions could have come from
Vancouver before noon of Thursday
when the Bruno reached port and it
was just about the time of her departure that the men commenced to
arrive in Stewart  from the Red lift.
That the closing down hai | ro-
duced a sensation in local mining and
commercial circles, Is putting il mildly, particularly in view of Presldenl
Smith's mosi optimistic report al the
recent annual meeting of the shareholders, in which he said in reply to
a question of, "Are you going to close
down this winter?" "No, now thai
the Government wagon road is to be
completed and we can mine to advantage, certainly not; but we are
getting very tired of paying 5 cents
per pound freight for everything carried to the mine."
The latest information from the
property obtained from private individuals who inspected the strike is
that the ore now measures the full
face of the tunnel, which is 8x8 feet.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
NEWS OF THE PROVINCE
Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
TO  ATTEND  CORONATION.
"All the great men in the world
will be at King George's coronation,
and I hope to be there, too." Such
was the announcement by Chief Matthias, son of the famous Indian
Chief Joe of Capilano. Many
schemes are maturing in the head
of the representative of the Capilano
Squamish tribe, but this desire to
go to London eclipses all. The tomb
of his father is now completed, and
Chief Joe lies in his mausoleum,
erected by his son and the Indians
of British Columbia. The interior
work Is completed, but Matthias has
decided that the tomb will remain
closed till March, when there will
be a great gathering of the tribes
of the whole province. The mayor
of North Vancouver will ;perform
the opening ceremony. The chief
expects that the mayor will make
a speech on the occasion and he
himself will also address words of
wisdom to his dusky followers, counselling them to follow the white
men ln their zeal for learning and
to talk with no guile. Then he will
remind them that his father went
to London and shook hands with the
late King, and he will put it to them
that he should also go to the great
white chief, King George, and tell
him how on his father's tomb are
the stone effigies of the great King
Edward and the great Indian chief
clasped together in peace and goodwill. He Will also tell the King
of liis (Matthias') great desire to
livet at peace with Ihe whiles., although the latter, he claims, took
possession of land belonging to the
Indians. To accomplish iliis the
journey lo London entails expense,
but the Indians will easily me il
this, says Chief Matthias. Lately
the chief lias been addressing the
Indian hoys, arid advising them to
educate themselves. He also intends lo form a section of Boy
Scouts In his reserve, with himself
as scoutmaster, and he proposes to
wear his Seoul's uniform when he
pay-: his expei I'd visit to King
George.

WALNUT GROWING,
Vancouver—That walnuts can be
very successfully grown in Britisli
Columbia, is the opinion of .1. N,
Kendall, general agenl in British Columbia for the Capital City nurseries
of Salem, Ore. As evidence, he gave
some very fine specimens of Fran-
quette walnuts grown in Vancouver.
He also bad some specimens of smaller varieties grown in the Fraser valley, which he considers an ideal
place for them, the only requisite
being thai the right variety of trees
should be planted. The Franquette
walnut will come into heaving at
any time from two to six veins afler
grafting. They require a rich, moist
soil such as the Delta country provides, and they can be grown with
remarkably little trouble. Every
Christmas carloads of these nuts are
imported to Vancouver and a great
saving would be effected if they
could be grown at home.
SONGHEES   RESERVE.
Victoria—It is understood that a
meeting of the board of the Hudson's
Bay company was held in London
toward the end of last week, and
it is expected that the proposals of
the British Columbia Government in
respect to the purchase of the land
fronting on Esquimalt harbor and
required for the new Songhees reserve would obtain consideration at
this meeting. Apparently this business was not reached, however, as
it had been promised that a cablegram would be sent the company's
local manager announcing any decision arrived at—and no such message has as yet come to hand.
MOVED RENTED HOUSE.
Vancouver—William Latham, who
rents a house at the corner of Victoria drive and TweL'th avenue, In
this city, from Mrs. Burse, was given
$20 damages by Judge Mclnnes yesterday for contravention of peaceful
possession by the action of his landlady. Mr. Latnam's testimony was
that both he and his wife went to
work in the morning and came hornet
in the evening to find their houset
in the street. The landlady said she
was simply moving it around on the
lot to erect another house. J. E.
Bird appeared for the plaintiff and
A. M. Harper for Hie defendant.
PAPER CABLE,
Vancouver—The first paper cable
- : r la d iii deep water will, if the
presenl intentions of the company
ried out, be put down between
Vancouver anil Victoria by ihe llrit-
i li Columbia Telephone company.
i uis type of cable, not necessarily
a new one, is known as paper ltisu-
lated cable of ihe pupin coil type,
an improvement on the gutta percha
pupin cuhle recently Installed by the
British Government, in ihe English
channel, and is said to be as far
in advance of (lie gutta percha variety as the latter is ahead ol the
ordinary styles. By means of tliis
new type it is expected that Van-
couverites will be enabled to talk to
San Francisco vio Victoria, whereas
at the present time they can only
talk by cable as far as Seattle. It
is claimed lo be 300 per cent, ahead
of the ordinary cable. The cost for
the cable itself will be $100,000.
C. F. Bollschweiler, superintendent of plant for the British Columbia
Telephone company, who has just, relurned from a lour of Eastern Canada and the Siales, was presenl in
Chicago al tesis of tiie proposed new
cable, when ii was subjected to various pressures and strains similar
to those that would be placed on it
were it laid in deep water.
At Montreal, Mr. Bollsschweiler inspected the new plant being Unshed
for exchanges at Vancouver, most of
which has since been shipped to its
destination.

That Japan must prepare for war
witli the United States, is Hie texl
of an article published by the Tokyo
Nippon. Tiie Nippon quotes an anonymous Japanese vice-admiral ns
saying that: "However regrettable
the fact may be, ii is none the less
Incontrovertible thai the danger of
a breach of the peace between Japan
and a western power comes chiefly
from America's attitude. In vain do
statesmen and enlighti ned public
men on each Bide preach the neces-
hsity mid ii. monstrate the realty of
mutual friendship. None the less,
from time to time nnd with the evergrowing iteration, come from the
United Stab of hostility j
which   may  develop  a  strength  too
great for official control.
"J ipan musl ; epared for Mum '
ti ncj. She m I ■ sit herself
whal objective this element of United
States citizens have In view when
tlioy advocate thi 'xpenditure of enormous sums oi' furnishing the .Pa- '
cllic with a big fleet;  of creating a
powerful army on the Pacific slope;
on building a huge coal depot and
naval port in Hawaii, and on fortifying the Philippines, Hawaii and
Panama. Unwilling as Japan may
be to believe in any quarrel with
the United States it is not right for
her to shut her eyes to facts which
stare her in the face."
Learning  From Britain.
The Japanese public was quite
surprised when tho news was received from England thai the navy
depart ment had ordered a 27,000-ton
cruiser to steam 27 knots and mount
twelve It-inch guns, and much com-
ment was made by Japanese newspapers thai this was in contravention
nt tho policy announced of constructing all war vessels at home, The
Japanese naval department Issued an i
official statemenl thai the order was
given to a British yard that Japan j
might secure b vessel of the latest
Moilel for construction al home of
other Dreadnought cruisers, Somet
of i lie Japanese papers consider the
order is an acknowledgment of Japanese infer! Jrity in warship construction. The Asahi s. rs if has been
known that Japan wns much behind
iean countries and the placing
if the ord ir foi I In m -
well ns her arms nnd equipment, in
spo ed this fact. The
says the warships Tsukuba,
[ltoma, Satsuma, Akl nnd others
built in Japan have mori or less defects in comparli on  wit!	
1 ■ piled  in  Europe.
Greater Sea   Power.
The Jiji sliimpo publishes an arti-'
cle urging further expansion of the
Japanese army. The Jiji, after recapitulating figures showing the
building programmes of the powers,
says that by 1917 the United States,
Germany and France will each be
able to assemble thirty battleships
and armored cruisers in the Pacific
against Japan's nineteen. The Jiji
says that $40,000,000 to be voted for
naval increase is not necessarily adequate.
The Yomiuri is authority for the
report that the Government has de-i
eided upon the reorganization of the
army corps. According to the new
plan, each corps will consist of three
divisions, having staff, account and
law departmetnts. The total expenditure involved by the change is es-
lininted at about $500,000 pari of
*hieli will be taken from the appropriation for each division. By I be
new system the army is to be placed
on  a   full   war  footing.

Will Open a New Tunnel.
Arthur Griswold, foreman at the
Lead King, came in town with the
news of an Important strike in the
tunnel being driven on the Home-
stake claim at a distance of about
one hundred feet from the mouth,
says the Omineca Herald. There is
now a continuous streak of solid
high grade galena from six inches to
a foot wide. The remained of the
vein, which is over two feet wide,
is composed of carbonates and soft
filling. While there has been much
good ore all the way most of it was
in the form of carbonates. Griswold
thinks they are now gelling beyond
the area of surface disturbance. Assays of samples taken some weeks

the   speaker    at   the  Canadian   clud   who   >ed   a   British   expedition   into
luncheon     at     Hamilton     recently.)
He   spoke    on    recrlproclty,    covering   largely   the   ground   covered   in
his recent address in Toronto.
In part, Mr. Nesbitt said: "In
considering any offers, and in considering the whole question of trade
relations, there is something to be
looked at much wider than meret
questions of tariff. We have been
brought up to reverence the British constitution under which we live.
We have been taught that a constitutional monarchy, where there were
the three separate custodians of
power—the ing, the Lords, and the
Commons—provides the best safeguard in the way of a constitution
for our rights and liberties that the
world had ever seen. It is perhaps
not realized in Canada that in law
the Imperial Parliament is supreme
over our affairs. Our constitution
could be repealed at any session of
tiie  Imperial   Parliament."
Continuing, be said: "Speaking
for myself, 1 have of late begun to
wonder whether Canadians would
noi soon begin to reflect on what
was passing in Great Britain in relation to the constitution. Have the
statesmen of Great Britain reflected
that the overseas dominions may be-
the custodians of ultimate power in
relation to their affairs? If blind
political folly is allowed • by real
Britain to destroy or cripple two
of the great constitutional safeguards
—the monarchy and the second
chamber—we In Canada have, I
think, some reason for anxiety.
"That the overseas dominions will
soon begin to Hike some thought as
to their own future, both politically
and materially, if Ihey find that the
affairs of ihe Empire are henceforth
to be administered al the dictation
of temporary waves of political passion and without any veal substantial cheek and guarantee of gravity
of consideration and continuity of
policy, such as is afforded by a
strong second chamber and by the
monarchy in conjunction with such
a chamber.
"Still speaking for myself, my
hope as a Canadian lies in the building up of this country, great and
strong and free, as one of the units
of Empire. I believe that our material prosperity lies ln that direction. ,
"The   affairs   or   Empire,   to   my
mind,  are  in   the   ti elting-       Sir

Tibet a few years ago, points for
the benefit of the home government
tiie moral of the recent unrest In the
land of the Llama,
What would help mosl Inwards the
.solution of the trouble which existed
in that quarter, he said, was the appointment of an agent at Lhasa who
would Influence those events, or, at
leasl, "intelligently anticipate them."
II. was not sound business to be at
the mercy of events, and our urgent
need was for an agent on the northeast frontier who would warn us of
trouble before it arose. The Tibetans
had' themselves asked that a British
officer should be sent to Lhasa, but
their request had been refused. By
the Anglo-Russian convention both
this country and Russia had agreed
to have nothing to do with Tibet,
but, he thought, the time had come
for both countries to have agents at
Lhasa.
The whole question of the northeast frontier of India was never In
a more critical stage than at the
present moment. Force might not
lie required to settle it; but tore-
sight, forethought and foreknowledge most asuresdly were. Indifference nnd a bored desire to wash our
hands of the whole business, or a
lazy trust in the good feels of the
Chinese, would not suffice. A great
deal was heard nowadays of the
awakening of China. All down our
Yunnan, bordering on Burma, the
wider awake the Chinese the wider
awake we ourselves must be. We
formerly had reason to complain of
the lethargy of the Chinese in Tibet;
now the complaint was not merely
of lethargy, but of positive obstruction, We had every reason to bet
wide awake.
That China should establish better order in Tiber and make her suzerainty properly effective was obviously desirable. But the Chinese
were going a long way towards turning their suzerainty into sovereignty
over Tibet, and making Tibet a Chinese province, as they had made Bailing and Derge Chinese districts;
and, so far from making Tibetans
fulfill their treaty obligations, they
were actually preventing them from
so doing. There was, in the words
of Lord Morley, "a marked absence"
of friendly relations with our officers, and of a desire on the part of
ih" Chinese local orficla's to co-operate with our own in a friendly manner.
"In my opinion," continu 'd Colonel
Younghusband, "we have ro cause to
fear a Yelow Peril. The Chinese,
indeed, have much more reason to
] fear a While Peril. Nor need we
fear a Chinese invasion of India
through Tibet. But rough, tactless
handling of the lamas and movet-
ments of Chinese troops in Tibet
must cause unrest all along the
northeast frontier. They necessitate
the movement of troops on our part,
in a permanent increase of our garrison. If the Chinese officials in
Tibet, have changed their attitude and
show themselves ready to co-operate

BEAVER INCREASING
Open Season May be Declared ia Order
to Overcome Nuisance
Created.
Southern    Farmers    Are    Suffering
From the Depredations of
These Animals.
Such has been the exceptional increase In the number of beaver In
the province since the close season
was declared six years ago that it
Is probable the Government will allow a partial open season late next
year. At the time the restrictions
were imposed, the beaver wns almost
extlnet in Britisli Columbia, but at
the present lime, declares Hume Warden Bryan Williams, there Is hardly
a stream ln the province lacking a
colony of the Canadian national animal. They are thick even on Lulu
island, and there are also several on
the streams across Burrard Inlet,
while in the interior of the province they have increased to such an
extent as to be a nuisance. Indeed,
in several instances permits hare
been granted to farmers to trap them
owlag to the tact tbat they were doing damage on the farms.
At the present time the close season covers only that part of the province souii  of lit   nn   rifti        i] '
roughly spi
east and west at the junction of the
Blackwater and Fraser rivers. Norlh
of that boundary Indians and settlers
have been allowed to do a certain
amount of trapping, Tin close season in the southern part of British
Columbia expires on November 1
next, and after that date It is thought
likely that the Government authorities will take away the restrictions
for a limited time.
It is not, my any means the intention, declares Mr. Williams, to
have free and unreserved trapping,
nor even continue the limited' destruction of the beaver for any considerable length "f time, for the department purposes to keep this nearly-exterminated animal us plentiful
as possible in tliis part of Canada.
It was thoughl for some timet
wiien  il"' close season was declared
entirely extinct for years, bul almosl
as soon as the ban was placed upon
the hunters and trappers the little
animals begun to multiply until now
tliey are very numerous.
\ny open season to be declared for
next autumn and the year following
will be aimed, it is slated, at permitting the trapping of beaver in
places where they are becoming a
nuisance, but preserving them elsewhere, such as in the irrigated districts where their dams on the
streams have proven the means of
conserving the water for the benefit
of the rancher desiring to run irrigation  ditches.    No shooting what-

solve;   to  avoid  It,   to   do  nothing, |
and to look wise.
"For Instance, suppose when a
Liberal Government were in power
they had to deal with the question
of prohibition. There would be a
possibility of alienating the sympathies of the prohibitionists if we
dealt with It one way, or the sympathies of the, liquor men If we dealt
with It in another way. Then it
would be possible for us to appoint
a commission, and that commission
would go on for one, two or three
years and It might cost $100,000 and
more to the country, but our government would be saved In the
meantime and the ministers would
look wise.
"Suppose we have to deal with and
to reform the tariff, which we certainly will have to deal with, we
might appoint a royal commission to
go about the country interviewing
manufacturers in secret, interviewing farmers In public, lecturing farmers, browbeating them and showing
them their stupidity because they
do not acknowledge the beauties of
the national policy.
"This Is a way In which men can
maintain their reputation for capability and small cuteness."
Thus the Laurler of 1895 effectively describes the policy of the Lav*,
rler of lBltt.

' let. All these drawbacks will be
.. . ^atly minimized, if not entirely
e.adicated, on the advent of railroad
:: ansportation into this district.
"The operating hydraulic mines
are all paying dividends, and it is
confidently expected that an additional number will be paying next
season. Amongst the larger plants
which will be equipped and running
next season we might mention Dun-
navon creek, Last Chance and Stewart's creek, under the management
of H. H. Jones. A large plant is
also being installed at the South
Wales under the direction of L. A.
Bonner. Workings on Sugar creek
will be opened up by Messrs. Charles
Edwards and J. Pinkerton, and Cunningham creek by Mr. Mahon. J.
Wendle will operate a number of
plants on willow river. There are
also a number of transfers and assignments now pending, which will in
all probability be in operate this coming season.
"We can with confidence predict
that with each succeeding year will
be added a still greater number ot
dividend paying properties to those
already in operation."

Hydraulic   Operations   Have   Given
Good Results—Rrlghl  Prospects
Ahead,
Dealing with the hydraulic season
in Cariboo, a correspondent of the
Ashcroft Journal says:
"The.hydraulic season of lain has
now about drawn to a close and the
majority of the mine managers have
taken their departure for tho coast.
Mother Earth is again covered witli
n mantle of snow about eighteen
Inches in depth, which is an Indication that  winter bus now set  in for

lieenu nfortunate in having perhaps
thet shortest hydraulic season in Uie
history of hydraulic mining here, yet
the gold output has been consider-
ablj  In excess of lasl y< ar
"In view of the fact that within
a few years we wil] have a transcontinental railway almosl Intersecting
one of the richest placer belts ever
discovered and a branch line running
from the main line along the Willow river to Barkerville and a wagon
road from Barkerville to the Bear
Lake country, it should be a strong
inducement for miners, speculators
:iml promoters io acquire claims in
thl    !' ' '
Arrangemetots are ketag made by
the British Government for the formation of the first actual air fleet, and
It will be put. In commission during
1011,      Tile   fleet   is   TO   consist   In   til6
ce of six ail si
aeroplanes, and these practically
represent a "battle squadron" and a
"cruiser squadron."
The airship squadron is intended
for tiie more serious strategical work
of defence in reconnalsance, and for
usdertaking long journeys. The aeroplane Is for the shorter tactical
scouting work. The former, minus
the naval craft, is to be headquartered at South Farnborough, in Wiltshire.
It should be remembered that all
these aerial vessels are for experiment in determining the special
types from which to build. No definite policy will lie laid down an
to design, and for years to come the
fleet must be an experimental one.
The best type of airship is still a

His Speech  in   1805,
One of the most effective passages
in Mr. Bovden's opening speech in
the present session of Parliament was
his recalling of an old speech by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. He recalled
the premier's dodging of the tariff
issue during his western tour, and
in particular noted his promise of
a commission io Investigate the tariff, li happens thai fifteen years ago

The board of agriculture and fisheries has issued a preliminary statement showing the estimated total
produce and yield per acre of the
corn, pulse and hay crops in Great
Britain in 1910. The estimated yield
of wheat this year, 7,061,904 quarters, is nearly 2 1-2 bushels per acre
less than in 1909. The total production of wheat, while less than last
year by about. 600,000 quarters, is
above, the ten years' average, mainly
in consequence of an increase of
acreage in recent years. Barley is
slightly above an average yield in
Great Britain, but it is less than in
1909 by three bushels per acre. The
total is 7,275,191 quarters. Oats are
the most satisfactory of the grain
crops, with a total of 15,184,241
quarters, a yield per acre of over one
bushel average. The hay crop,
both from arable and meadow-
land, is above the average by nearly two hundredweight per acre in
one case and one and a quarter hundredweight in  the  other.

INDEMNITY FIXED
Council Decides Upon the Allowance for
the Mayor and Aldermen
for Term.
Sum  Will  Xoi  He Proportionate u>
Months Served by
Them.
The city council has passed the
Indemnity bylaw for the year, fixing
the remuneration of the mayor at
$2,000 and each of Ihe aldermen at
$400. This amount according to the
bylaw is to be the sum paid for the
term of office and is not to be proportionate to the life of the present
ocuncll.
When the bylaw was considered
on Wednesday evening in committee
of the whole some considerable discussion followed.
When the section fixing the indemnity of the mayor at. $2,000 came up
His Worship said he felt that he
would perhaps prefer to see this at
the rate of $2,000 a year. He did
not feel like taking more than seven-
twelfths of the amount.
Aid. Mclntyre suggested that His
Worship  had  earned  it.
Aid. Smith said they could all afford, he thought, to give something
to the city. He telt that they could
well make the salary drawn proportionate to the time they served. He
would not have opposed the vote had
the mayor not raised the point and
expressed his desire to take only
seven-twelfths of the amount. He
would favor applying this rule to the
aldermen's allowance also.
Aid. Pattullo felt that the council
this year had done as much as the
council would for the whole year in
1911. If this was intended as a
salary to recompense the aldermen
for their services it was ridiculously
low. He felt they were entitled to
the'whole amount.
•kill. Hilditch said he favored Aid.
P^ttullo's stand. If he was not worth
$400 fo the city he was not worth
anything. If he was not worth $400
for the seven months he felt he
should not accept any remuneration
at all.
His Worship proposed to separate
the two, that of mayor and that of
aldermen. He did not think that
the aldermen should receive less
than the full amount. They had
done a lot of work. In the case of
the mayor the allowance was a liberal one.
Aid. Naden agreed with Aid. Hilditch. He would have favored making a reduction for those who had
not  attended all (lie meetings.
Aid. I'altuiio movedto adopt the
section making the mayor's salary
$2.iinii. A vote being taken resulted in a.tie; years, Aid. Pattullo, Hilditch, Mclntyre; nays. Mayor
Stork, Aid. Lynch and Smith. The
motion carried on the casting vote of
Aid. Naden, tlie chairman of the committee.
On the motion fixing Hie Indemnity
or the aldermen at $400 each Aid.
Lynch proposed that it should lie
two-thirds of the amount. The motion was lost and the original section  passed.
The matter was referred to the
finance committee.

BUILDING TROUBLE
Question Comes Up of Regulating the
Class of Structures in Parts
of City.
At Wednesday evening's council
meeting a petition was received from
residents protesting against the erection of a foreign hotel on Lot 3,
Block 5, Section 5. The complaint
urged that a building permit should
be refused. The building inspector's
report which accompanied this stated
that he had refused a permit. The
matter was allowed to stand at that.
Last evening the question came up,
when it was explained that there
were serious difficulties to be encountered in this connection.
Aid. Hilditch explained that the
permit had been refused pending a
decision by the council. It was to
his mind very doubtful whether they
had the power to refuse such a permit.
Aid. Lynch said he doubted very
much whether they had the right to

A Merry
Christmas to All
Before The Journal again readies its readers the festive Christinas
season will have passed. This day, peculiarity associated with the gathering of families, has become the occasion for the display of more of the
family sentiment than any other day of the year. To those like the
residents of Prince Rupert, who are playing such an important part in
the building up of a new portion of the country, there must of necessity
be a forgetting to too great an extent of some of the finer sentiments.
These, however, are only superficially covered in the manly effort which
the inhabitants of the frontier must put forth to do their duty. The
Christmas season affords the opportunity for the display of the better
feelings.
The Christinas season will undoubtedly revive in most of those
making their home in Northern British Columbia memories of other days
and the season will not pass without its sad tinges.
To tiie readers of The Journal, to nil residents in fact of Prince Rupert and tiie north, we extend the wish that they may have a Merry
Christmas. There are none who deserve these conditions better. There
are none braver or witli warmer hearts than the pioneers of the country
and The Journal  only  hopes that all may spend a most happy holiday.
AID TO HOSPITAL
Subject of City Making Substantial Vote
is Discussed at
Meeting.
Aid.   Hildltch   Favors   Public   Ward
lieins; Maintained Prom
Civic   Funds.
At the special meeting of the city
council held on Wednesday evening
the question of assisting the hospital
came up and was quite fully discussed by the aldermen. Nothing definite was reached on the subject, the
matter being left to the finance committee to discuss with the hospital
board.
The subject was introduced by Aid.
Naden, who, speaking for the hospital board, said that it was going
to be very difficult to equip the hospital without further aid. If the city
council could see Its way clear to
help out In any way it. would be
appreciated.
Aid. Hildltch said he had expected
to see this put forward earlier. It
was a pity It did nol come up before. This hospital had been built
by the big-hearted men of the city.
This was not Ihe way II should be.
The city should have a share in this.
There had been $3,000 set aside in
the esllmate for emergencies. If tho
finance committee could see Its way
clear to vote $3,000 or $5,000 to
Ihe hospital, not as a donation alone
but In view of which the public
ward should be turned over to the
city.
Aid. Pattullo said he had intended
to recommend a donation to the hospital. He ha'd not thought of proposing such a sum as suggested. He
had intended to propose to donate
$500 to the hospital. The question
of the city taking over the hospital
might well occupy the attention of
Ihe council next year.
Aid. Hilditch said that he favored
the city taking complete charge of
the hospital. If tbe money was not.
available to do the work it means
that ome of the kind-hearted citizens would have to dig down ln their
pockets again.
Aid.  Naden  said  he agreed   with
Aid. Hilditch. If it were not connected with a civic hospital the cost
of keeping it up fell upon a' verf
few. If paid for out of general revenue every one would have a fair
share.
Aid. Hilditch said four months before he hada sked members of the
hospital board if they would not
agree to the proposition he suggested. Some preferred to build the
hospital  on  private subscriptions.
Aid. Mobley said that while most
of the men gave very willingly to
tne hospital some had sidestepped
their ability to subscribe. This was
not as it should. He would favor
making a donation this year and
leave the question of taking owe the
public ward to next year's council,
lie felt that $2,000 was none too
much for the city to donate.
Aid. Lynch moved that the matter
be referred to the financial committee to bring in a report on the question.
Aid. Pattullo said that one reason
why this did not come up earlier was
because there were members of the
board who were not in favor of such
The  Indemnity  bylaw  carried.
RUSHING THE BYLAW
CHANGE OF GRADE
Second and Third Avenues to be Levelled
Up Near McBride
Street.
A proposition is on to alter the
grade of Third avenue and also Second avenue between McBride street
and Third street. The purpose is to'
raise tb.e grade a little in the low-
lying part and by lowering McBride
street at the end of Second avenue
to gel practically a level area In
the territory affeited. Petitions
asking for the work were presented
at the council meeting last evening,
when it was decided in order to
expedite matters to have the preliminary steps taken without referring
tile petition to the streets committee.
It was explained Hint the proposed
change would lower McBride street
lo a level with the Clapp block,
which would not be affected.
The question is to be dealt with at
once and the legal steps taken to
effect  the  change if  po sible.
Haste  Shown in  Getting  the  Liquor
Regulations Through
Council
Some  Sections  Seem  to  Clash   Witli
Statutes of Province but Are
Put Through.
The new liquor bylaw after some
delay in being brought down is now-
being rushed through the council.
It was considered in committee of
the whole last evening by the council. Objection was raised by some
members of the council to what they
described as an attempt to railroad
the measure through the council
without giving proper time to consider it. New sections had been prepared and were seen for the first
time last evening, which it was contended was unfair. Aid. Mobley,
however, put up the argument that
it. was essential to have the bylaw
passed before New Years and a majority of the council voted with liim,
it being quite apparent the majority
had decided lo see the bylaw
through as Introduced.
The first difference of opinion
arose In connection with a section
which enacted Hint no licence should
be cancelled except for violation of
the law, failure lo apply for a re-
newal or a reduction being made in
the number of licences by reason of
the population and in the latter case
the cancellations were to follow in
the  order of the last granted.
Aid. Hilditch was afraid this conflicted with Ihe statutes and suggested that It stand over.
A little discussion followed tn
which there was shown a determined
intention by the majority to put it
through.
Aid. Lynch said he would he frank
in the matter. He said he favored
this because lie felt there was a
terrific club which could be wielded
by some power outside of the municipalities of the province, lie moved
the adoption of the section.
Aid. I'altuiio wanted to see this
go through.
Aid. Hilditch could see no reason
for rushing this.     He  would  like to

YEAR'S RECORD OF
THE CITY COUNCIL
Mayor and Aldermen Meet the Public and Lay Before
Them Some Details of the Work Upon Which
They Have Been Engaged and the Policy
Pursued During Office.
On Tuesday evening on the initiative of Mayor Stork a public meeting was held in the Empress theatre
for the purpose of allowing the members of the council to explain somewhat in detail the work that has
occupied them during their term of
office. There was a large attendance
and although the meeting was necessarily quite prolonged the deepest interest was taken throughout. His
Worship presided and all the members of the council were present with
the exception of Aid. Barrow, who is
out of the city.
Mayor Stork.
.Mayor Stork explained the object
of the meeting, which was to give
an account of the stewardship of the
individual members of the council
during the past year. The council
felt that it had had a heavy task to
perform during the year. There was
bound to be a great difference of
opinion. If any errors had been made
it was due not so much designedly
but to error of judgment. They
were not here to excuse themselves
but to "sink or swim by what they
had done." if he had to do it over
again lie would do exactly as he had
done. It has taken an enormous lot
of time to get things in running
order. He paid a compliment to the
Board of Trade in taking steps before Incorporation to advertise for a
city engineer, They had got an engineer that he felt was the best one
for the position. A lot of the criticism of the council had not been of
a fair character. He had heard that
a move was on foot at one time to
ask the council to resign. Leaving
himself out, he must say the council
was a most competent body of men.
Dealing with the Fifth street matter the mayor explained that the
residents asked for the plankway,
agreeing to pay for it. They were
warned that it would soon have to
be torn up. These men who were
paying for it insisted that it should
be done. It was not three days before it had to be torn up. The criticism was heard from the men who
were paying for it.
It had been deemed advisable fo
Work Accomplished.

improvement plan. In Section •" tbey
had nearly every avenue from Fourth

6 from Fourth avenue to Ninth avenue had  been planked.
They had a good telephone muniei-
pay system which was a paying one.
It is being extended week by week.

had been extended as fur as possible to every part asking Tor il.

Hands Off O, T. I'.
Taking up the Q. 'I'. I', settlemenl
His, Worship said Hint tiny should
desist from making thi" a football
for election purposes. The municipal
council was made up of business men
who were favorable to making some
kind of a settlemenl with the G.T.P.
The council wan well satisfied witli
the attitude o'' Mr. Tip". II.' him
self said lie believed the proposed
settlemenl was a good one li- asked
all citizens to leave ibis matter alone
during the election campaign.
On the matter of unfair criticism
Mayor Stork went into the call for
tenders for printing early in the his-
tory of the council and gave the figures up-'i. wi'ii ii die Journal had
been awarded the contract, Based on
i In' tender submitted by The Empire ilie mayor contended that there
had been misrepresentation of his
altitude by thai paper. Hiving Hi.'
correspondence lie Bald he would
leave the public to judge aa to who
was "a liar," us lie had been described by The Empire,    Aa soon as the
contracl was let to The Journal The
Empire began to criticize liim.
Aid. Naden.
Aid. Naden said that to give an
account of his stewardship would be
a comparatively easy matter. He
would not be a candidate for alderman next year and so he would not
require to show that he had done
much. He did not know when he
accepted office that he would be
called away so much. Had he known
that he would not have taken office.
He was sorry he was not able to
be present. He took credit for having presented every workman in the
city who did not own property from
being disfranchised. This he explained as being due to his having li*o
the $2 poll tax restored to the city
bylaw. He pleaded guilty to having
a trades licence restored. He thought
he had been the means of getting
some revenue from the merchants of
the city. The speaker took occasion
to defy the imputation that there
were grafters on the council. It
was a disgrace to i > wspapers to send
an opinion abroad that the council
were grafters.
In closing Aid. Naden said Ihat he
would not be a candidate for alderman next, year because he was going
to be away. He criticised a mayoralty candidate who would be away,
he said, for two months after election.
Aid. Hilditch.
Aid. Hilditch said that he did noi
know very well what Ihe meeting
was going to be—whether a love
feast or a political campaign. Aid.
Naden had however introduced the
political aspect of It. lie agreed
that the flrst council had been an
honest one. He never charged any
grafter. He differed with member*
of it in many points, but he never
saw evidence of grafting. Aid. Naden said he ran on the labor ticket
He believed that members of the city
council had not always done all Ihat
it could have done for the working-

What Has Been Expended by Dominion
Government to
Date.
George   Carmnc   Wrongfully   cJiven

Moneys  Laid  Out on  Railways  and
Canal Cince Confederation
of Provinces!
For the year ended March 31 the
total expenditure on the Government
railways, railway subsidies, etc., was
$32,8(12,094.40, of which $21,505,-
975.91 was charged to capital,
$2,260,214.59 to income, and
$9,095,903.90 to revenue. The expenditure on capital account included $19,968,126.8G for the eastern division of the National Transcontinental railway and $53,042.63 for surveys for a railway to Hudson bay.
The expenditure on income included
a total of $2,048,097.05 paid as subsidies to railways other than the Government lines; $112,465.04 for the
board of railway commissioners,
$17,644.66 for inspection of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway, and
$111,788.02 for preparing plans, etc.,
for the reconstruction of the ue-
bec bridge. The expenditure on the
Intercolonial railway was $9,923,-
479.78, viz., on capital account,
$1,278,409.45, and oft revenue account, $8,645,070.33. On the maintenance of the I. C. R. Windsor
branch, the expenditure, $23,549.90,
was charged to erevenue account. On
the P. E. I. railway the total expenditure was $633,388.70, of which
$206,396.97 was charged to capital
and $427,283.73 to revenue.
The expenditure on canals aggregated $3,259,097.18, of which
$1,650,706.64 was on capital account,
$489,256,68 on income, $604,899.-
20 for staff, and $514,234.00 for
repairs, the last two amounts being
charged to revenue. Added to the
above for miscellaneous expenditures
in both branches the sum of $4,706,-
79, the total expenditures for the
year on railways and canals amounted to $36,125,898.43.
The total revenue derived from
railway and canal work was $9,S41,-
347.99, of which railways produced
$9,647,963.71 and the canals $193,-
384.28, the sum of $168,893.63 being received from hydraulic rents.
The canals have been free of tolls
since  1905.
The total Government. expenditure on railways prior to and since
Confederation amounts to, on capital
account, to $236,654,665.29, including $25,000,000 granted the C.P.R.
for its main line, and $660,6S3.09
expended on the Annapolis & Digby

expenditure is $566,326,737.22. This
amount does not Include payments to
the province of Quebec in respect
lo the building of the Ottawa &
Queber railway, which Is dealt with
by tite finance department.
The following letter appears In the
Ottawa Citizen by Major H. J. Wood-
side, formerly of the Yukon, and
well known in the west:
Editor Citizen:—A few days ago,
in publishing a news item entitled
"Boring for Mother Lode," you gave
an interesting account of the effort
being made to locate the lode of
quart of the divide between the Indian river and Klondike valleys,
whence all the placer gold came during centuries of glacial erosion.
But it was an error to credit the
discovery of the Klondike placers to
George Carmac; that is a Seattle
farce. Carmac did not discover the
Indian river nor the Klondike placers. This was due to years of determined, dangerous and starvation
prospecting on the part of Robert
Henderson, of Pictou, N. S., one of
the greatest prospectors the Yukon
has known.
Henderson produced placer gold
from the Indian river creeks in 1894,
1895 and early in 1896. In Janet,
1896, he made the flrst known discovery of placer gold on the Hunker-
Gold Bottom creek, one of the richest on the Klondike side. The name
Klondike covers the creeks in both
valleys, the Indian river creeks not
being much less rich, as will be
shown when the final summing up
is made.
There was a large stampede on to
Henderson's new find, when Carmac
accepted Henderson's invitation to
"come up and stake" on Gold Bottom creek. On his return "Skookum
Jim," his Indian brother-in-law,
made the discovery on what is now
known as Bonanza creek. It was
an accident, and before it becamet
i known, and within two days of the
j date, a party under Monahan, looking for Henderson's strike, prospected and staked several miles below
Carmac's stakes on Bonanza. It was
that party, with additions, which
named the new creek, and its branch,
Eldorado.
Carmac was neither miner nor
prospector, and only had energy
enough to help his wife and her
Indian relatives to fish for salmon
on the present site of Dawson,
when Henderson passed his camp, returning to his new find with a fresh
boat load of provisions. Hence the
invitation to stake, which was an
unwritten obligation from one white
man to another in those days. The
movement to give Carmac the credit
is rankly unjust, and has no real
foundation in fact.
There are only three reasons why
he should get the credit on the other
side. They are: First, his name is
George Washington Carmac; second,
lie made his pile in easy fashion, and
on the work of another; third, he
took his pile to Seattle, the home of
the movement, and that of princely
lairs.
Henderson got nothing, being deprived of several rich claims through
a technical decision by tbe mining
registrar at Forty Mile, which was
afterwards reversed in Ottawa, but
which did not benefit Henderson.
The excellent handbook on Yukon
issued by the department of the interior, gives Henderson the credit.
Ex-Governor Wm. Ogllvle, in his new
wont, does the same. I have affidavits and letters from the principal
Yukon pioneers and governors
given proper credit.— Henry .1.

9, 1910.
AID   TO  MOTHERS
New Zealand Proposes  to  Take  Steps
to Encourage Population.
State  Will  Lend  Assistance  to  the
Heads of Deserving
Families.
Although New Zealand is a young
and materially prosperous country
the population'problem confronts her
statesmen as it does in other parts
of the British Dominions. Suggestions have from time to time been
made of methods by which the laboring classes particularly might be
encouraged to contribute to nation-
building. State grants of land to
those with large families Is the favorite device of a certain class of
politicians, but although admirable
in theory this scheme has lacked
practicability. In the first case it
would entail an enormous liability
upon in the crown, and, in the second, the difficulty of assimilating urban dwellers to rural conditions has
proved  insuperable.
There Is a tendency on the part
of students at a distance to believe
that there is a higher standard of
prosperity and comfort amongst the
working classes of New Zealand than
elsewhere, but the fact Is that
enough, throtigthe operation of the
industrial laws, the wages of artisans and laborers have advanced,
there has at the same time been a
material increase in ' rental values
and the price of commodities. The
worker has gained on one hand and
lost on the other. Trade fluctuations have contributed to enrich the
merchants and the middlemen, but
the laborer finds the struggle for
existence hard, if not harder than
he did in the old days of low wages
and unrestricted competition. There
is nothing to encourage, and very
much to discourage, the rearing of
large families. The Dominion Government, looking about for a means
of circumventing the difficulty, has
introduced this session a bill having
for Its object state aid to mothers.
It provides that upon application
being made by a married woman or
by her husband or some other person on her behalf within one month
of the birth of a child, she is to become entitled to the services of a
midwife or medical practitioner, or
both, if necessary. Such attendance
is to be supplied at the woman's
home unless, in the opinion of the
district hospital board, such attendance can be more conveniently supplied at any institution belonging to
the board, or elsewhere. Every application must be accompanied by a
fee of $5 and no other payment shall
be made to the board in respect of
any relief afforded. Every application is to be accompanied by a statutory declaration that the combined
incomes of the husband and wife
during the twelve months immediately preceding the date of application
did  not exceed  $1,000.
It is provided that all expenditures
incurred by a board under this legislation shall be entitled to double
the rate of subsidy prescribed under
the general act. It is quite possible
that the bill in question wil finid its
way on to the statute books during
the current session of Parliament.
The one certain thing about it Is that
It will entail a large financial responsibility  upan   the  state.     It  will   be

COAL NOTICES
I iipi'iliie Skins  It  Is  Argued  Should
He Prohibited From Sale,
"Within four years the fur business In this district will be a thing
of the past."
That is the opinion of a prominent local dealer in raw furs, based
on the alarming annual decrease in
the number and value of skins
brought to the local market, says
the Omineca Herald, of Hazelton.
Thus, unless some aoction looking to the protection of fur-bearers
is taken, an industry which has
brought into this district many thousands of dollars yearly will soon
cease to be a factor In local business. So far as can be ascertained,
the fur trade is in the same condition, more or less, throughout the
province.
Three weeks ago The Herald editorially discussed the question, and
urged the necessity of some measure
of protection for fur-bearing animals.
Our remarks aroused considerable
interest locally, and evoked a letter
from A. R. Macdonald advocating the
passage of a law prohibiting the sale
or possession of unprimed skins as
tiie only practicable method of
checking the unnecessary destruction of furbearers. This proposal appears to have met with the approval
of all connected with the fulr trade
in Hazelton and vicinity, the unanimous opinion of all those seen by
The Herald man being that no other
Government enactment would be of
any avail In protecting the animals.

Of John Burns, elected In Batter-

a certain Irlnt of his temperament
than one which Allan Baker, of Fins-

Mr. Burns to Canada on his last visit
and, being an ardent Canadian, took
his friends to the top of Mount Royal
at Montreal and let the glorious panorama of river and country side sink
Into the consciousness of the Bat-
tersea statesman. "Great, Isn't It?"
he at last ventured. But Burns refused, like Mark Twain with the Italian guide, to be impressed, even by
the noble St. Lawrence. "Oh, I don't
know," he said at. last, "it's only
water, you know." Baker's patriot-
Ism was touched. "Only water!" he
replied, "only water, you say, what
then of your old Thames?" Burns
turned on him with his face aglow.
"The Thames?" he replied, "Why It's

thi: PATRIOTS.
Aid, Pattullo at the public meeting a few evenings ago pushed aside
for a little time the advice of tie
mayor, who pleaded Unit the G.T.P.
taxation question should not be
made a football for. election purposes
- a stand which we must agree witli
for we have previously taken the
very same position—and for a few
moments give Ihe public a little demonstration of the Inflamatory character of oratory that ho was prepared to have used during the election. Without Introducing any tiling
that would tend to counteract Hie
expressed wish of liis Worship to
keep the tl. T. P. question of the
campaign there were words uttered
by Aid. Pattullo that are worthy of
a little attention. They deal with
the purchase of The Optimist and
the clear inference to be drawn from
what Aid. Pattullo says is that the
purchase was made at the instigation
of the members of the city council
who are shareholders for the express
purpose of waging war upon the
G. T. P. It was a new explanation
which Aid, Pattullo had to offer and
somewhat contradicts the ideas of
those who have been in touch with
the trend of newspaper moves with
respect to the city for nearly five
years past and who probably know
•as much about the real situation as
Aid. Pattullo.
Bat Aid. Pattullo at the public
meeting said, "Let me tell you, there
was a time when there was a grave
danger of the city being handed over
to the G. T. P." He then Insinuated
that, tiie newspapers of the city were
fending themselves to this, which is
no* a coTrect impression to convey
with respect to one newspaper at
least, the only one for which we
can speak. The Journal was always
prepared to stand by the rights of
the city just as faithfully as Aid.
Paxtullo or any other member of
the city council. In this regard it
may perhaps not be regarded as egotistical if we state that the $25,000
taxation proposed now as a basis of
settlement was the sum suggested by
The Journal at a very early slage In
the proceedings.
But now to revert to Aid. Pattul-
fo's statement al the public meeting.
Continuing lie told how it had been
decided that "we must have a paper
that will properly represent this city.
We bought this one." It will thus
be seen thai Hie idea of Aid. I'altuiio, wlio poses as the white headed
boy of the city council with the
erimped forelocks, the expansive
brow and the benign smile, was to
have an organ to bring Hie fl. T. I'.
to time. Now thai a policy has been
endorsed differing materially from
tile avowed purpose of its existence
what does the alderman propose to
io in the matter?
AVOID PERSONALITIES.
There is developing a tendency to
introduce too many personalities
into municipal affairs. The practice
«annot be too much discouraged. If
wen of standing in the community
are willing to give their services to
Ihe public surely they should be commended lor it. Differences are sure
io exist, on matters of policy and
my man's policy must be open to
fhe fullest criticism. There Is no
reason however why men should be
personally attacked without cause.
The city of Prince Ruperl will find
thai if that course is pursued it will
have a lower standard Introduced
Into its civic life. Me,, of ability
enough to properly conducl the af-
lairs of tiie city are not likely lo be
is patriotic as to give their services
>! they know hy so doing tbey are
to lie slandered. The result will be
that the citizens best qualified to
serve will refuse lo offer themselves
and a less efficient council will result.
No man should object to fair
■criticism. But unfortunately the
term does not apply to all that is
being offered.

Aid. Pattullo, at Welnesday evening's council meeting, moved a vote
of thanks to the mayor for the invitation to attend the meeting on
Friday evening and the motion carried unanimously. His Worship acknowledged the vote and said that
he called the meeting in order to
give the public a chance to know
what was being done. He had introduced this practice, which he hoped
would be continued.
HEALTH OF CITY.
The medical health officer, Dr.
Reddie, has presented to the council his first report covering the year's
work. He reports that the sanitary
conditions are good in spite of the
fact that the sewerage system has
not been perfected. He attributes
the excellent conditions to the unceasing vigilance of the sanitary of
flee.
It is pointed out in the repjort that
tiie G. T. P. reserve with the quarters erected there would not likely
health during the winter but efforts
should be made to have it cleaned up
in  the spring.
The death rate was very low, only
fifteen deaths being recorded and
of these three had been brought from
the oulside, The death rate was
only 7.60 per thousand per annum.
The report was laid on the table
for the incoming council.

Before the council adjourned last
evening Aid. Pattullo took occasion
to move that the press representatives should be extended the best
wishes of the council for the holiday
season. He referred to the warm
feeling he had for the members of
the press and although they might
not always agree there was no reason for any ill-feeling and the members of the council all appreciated
the services rendered by the press.
Aid. Pattullo also took occasion
lo extend good wishes to all the
members of the council.
The resolution respecting the press j
was carried unanimously and Mayor
Stork extended  it to the press men.j
wishing them  a very  Merry  Christmas and a most Happy and Prosperous New Year.
A brief reply was made on behalf
of the press In which the compliments were reciprocated to the members of the council.

THE   BUILDING   TROUBLE
(Continued From Page One.)
refuse  the  privilege of building.
Aid. Smith pointed out that if such
a building was to be erected it
would depreciate the value of prop
erty there. If the council could in
any way prevent it it should be done.
He thought they should have an
opinion from the city solicitor before  taking  any  action.
Aid. Pattullo did not think that
"foreign" was used in this connection as meaning exactly what the
term implied. It was a case of
trying to avoid having an undesirable class of buildings erected in
the place.
Aid. Mobley said he had casually
ascertained that the applicant for
the building was a naturalized British subject. .They would have to
act carefully.
Aid. Smith moved that no action
be taken until the matter was looked
into.
Aid. Hilditch said he had carefully gone into this question. The
building was to cost about $3,000.
The committee could not say that
a building would be an undesirable
one until the building was erected
If Ihe council refused It this man
would probably take legal act inn
The petition was badly prepared ow
ing  to  its  use continually   of  ihe
words  "foreign   boarding   house"  as
a reason for asking thai  Hie pe.i m
be refused,
li  was  finally decided,  on  mo

PLANS  KKCOVEKKD.
Peculiar    Cliciiinstiinccs    Conn
Willi Alberta Railway Situation.
Plans or ihe Alberta** Groat Water Ways; railway, for the section of
the road beginning some miles north
of Edmonton aud extending to a
point iu the vicinity or Battenburg,
were accidentally discovered in the
speaker's rooms in the Legislature
of the province of Alberta a few
days ago by J. R. Cowell, clerk.
The plans, which had been stuffed
between the back of the cabinet and
the wall, had been lost since the adjournment of the Legislature after
the spring session. They were submitted to the House last March, when
the Insurgent movement was in full
swing. They were prepared by the
company hurriedly for submission to
Premier Rutherford, who was then
minister of railways, but, as now appears, they were never signed by
him.
The discovery may have an important bearing en the settlement of
the Alberta & Great Waterways question. The fact that no plans of the
company have ever been approved
seems to bear out the contention of
R. B. Bennett that the company was
never authorized to go ahead with
the construction of Its line. Mr.
Bennett contended that It has not
been shown that the company was in
default in construction as it is det-
scribed to be ln the preamble of the
bill which passed the Legislature this
week.
Much of the time of the royal commission was taken up by the effort of
counsel to secure some clue to the
whereabouts of the missing plans.
Dr. Rutherford swore on the stand
that he had never given them his
approval. It now appears that Cecil
Goddard, assistant chief engineer of
the Alberta Great Waterways railway, had affixed his signature, but
no representative of the Government
had approved them.
In the recent debate on the bill for
the appropriation of the proceeds of
the company's bonds, Premier Sifton
stated, in response to Mr. Bennett's
question, that he had never seen the
place.

SURFACE   RIGHTS
Settlement by the Government of Vexed
Question Respecting Coal
Licencees in Coal Property Will He
Limited in Use of
• Land.
By a new ruling of the provincial
department of lands, which obtained
endorsement by the executive, a controversy of long standing and involving very considerable financial interests, has been ended.
This was with regard to the policy
adopted by persons operating under
coal-prospecting licences taking up
surface rights under these licences
in reserved areas to the detriment of
of the interests of bona fide pre-
emptors. The abuse of coal prospect-
licence privileges in the purchase of
lands which it was the intention of
the Government to reserve against
all save actual pre-emptors developed
serious proportions on Graham island, where approximately one-sixtli
of the entire area of the island on
the eastern and northern coast was
thus taken up to the exclusion of
many legitimate homeseekers, if reports are to be believed.
By the lew ruling it has been decided that licencees are not to be
entitled lo purchase any greater portion of the surface rights than maybe by Ihe chief commissioner decided
to be actually required by them in
the prosecution of legitimate mining
operations.

PISH   POACHERS.
The continued poaching by a fleet
of Puget sound fishing boats, mosty
gasoline    auxiliary    schooners    and
small steamers, some equipped with
wireleSss, off the west coast, of Vancouver Island Is to be drawn to the
attention of the Ottawa Government
In  the  hopes  that  some  steps  will
be taken to protect the fisheries of
Ihe  province.     A   seafarer  who  has
spent  the  past  season   at  Kyuquot,
says:  "The cheeky manner In which
the poachers freely sail into Kyuquot
omul   and   catch   herring   for   bait
hows how little they fear any patrol vessel.

Aid. Smith agreed with Aid. Hilditch and seconded his motion.
Aid. Mobley wanted It put

municipal act it would be Inoperative and could do no harm. He
suggested that they add as a rider

better to find if that power was
in  the council.
The motion of Aid. Hilditch to
lay the section over was defeated,
the following voting in favor:—Aid.
Hilditch,   Smith   and   Barrow,   with
Aid.  Mclntyre In  the chair.
The section was then carried on
the same vote.
Later on Aid. Smith objected to
the process of having to consider a
bylaw that was being handed around
with little slips of paper with the
amended sections on. The bylaw,
he contended, should be in shape before being Introduced. It waB most
unfair, he said, to introduce a bylaw and pass It before the committee in the shape It was. What were
they paying the city solicitor and
his stenographer for? He protested
against  it.
On the question of the hours of
closing, a delegation representing the
Local Option league waited upon the
council   early   In   the   evening.
II.   !•'.   McRae,   speaking   for   thel
lelegation, said   thai  the Local Op-
Ion  league had come in connect Ion
vith   the  new  liquor  licence  bylaw.
illy closing should be carried oul,
they felt. They approved of the
trade.    Their desire was to Bee tho
bars closed  at   I I   o'clock  on   » k
nights and '.i o'clock on Saturdays.
His Worship said  the  bylaw   was
before the council.    He did not him-,
self know what the bylaw contained j
but   the   representations   would   receive due consideration.
Aid. Naden assured the delegation
that he would favor the proposition
set forth.
The bylaw when considered in
committee was made to enforce the
closing of bars at 11 o'clock each
night of the week except Saturday
night, when they are to close at 10
o'clock.
The sections dealing with the licencing of bartenders were amended
so  that  there  was  no  necessity  for
the applicant to have a recommendation from the chief of police or from
any one else. A licence fee of $5
each half year will be charged.
Before the committee rose Aid.
Mobley said he wanted to take ex-
used during the discussions and referred  to Aid.  Smith.
Aid. Smith said he did not use
sarcastic language. He simply protested against the way In which this
bylaw was being forced through the
council.
Aid. Hildltch took similar ground.
Aid. Mobley said It was almost a
necessity that this pass before New
Years.
II. was finally agreed, on motion
of Aid, Smith, that tbe bylaw as
amended should be before each aid-

CORONATION  ROBES
Peers' Mantles are of Historic Import-
Have Been in Families
for Long Term.
ance
Kina George  Will  Go  Back  to the
Usual Custom of the Court
in .Matter.
Mailers pertaining : i the coronation are now exciting great attention and the press is ransacking ancient tomes for quaint, details. Some
particulars of the coronation robes
to be worn by peers are of more
than passing Interest. According to
an official of the College of Arms,
coronal ion robes were first worn
probably In Prance when some king
and liis court wished to make a great
display. Bul when they were actually introduced it is impossible to
say. It is pretty certain that the
idea of these imposing mantles for
slate functions was brought from
Prancet to England, and with very
little change during many centuries,
the robes of the peers and peereses
of the realm have constituted a
striking feature of the ceremonies of
the coronation  of our sovereign.
In the early days peers were invested, and not created by letters
patent, as is the case now. As far
as can be learned, the robe worn by
the recipient of the honor at the
investure became the recognized
mantle to be used at a coronation.
While now all the peers of the realm
wear robes, at that time only those
above the degree of baron assumed
this mantle of dignity. There were
all alike, the dukes bearing no mark
which would, for instance, distinguish them from earls.
At some subsequent date—precisely when is not known,though it was
probably in the fourteenth century—
degrees were signified by bars and
half-bars of black fur upon the mantle. The ermine capes were not
worn  until  a  later  period.
It may be recalled that in the
reign of Edward III. the wearing of
ermine, which has always been a
valuable fur, was restricted to members of the royal family. Subsequently this prohibition was removed, and the ermine capes form a very
noticeable part of the coronation
robes. Pieces of the black tall of
the ermine are worked into the cape,
and the number of rows shows the
degree which the'peer has attained.
Tims, on a duke's cape there aret
four, which entirely encircle it. A
marquis has three and a half, the
half commencing on the right sidet
from the front edge, and carried
round to the centre of the back. The
earl claims three rows, a viscount
two and a half, and a baron, who
until the reign of liarles 11, had no
mantle, has two rows of ermine tails
on his cape.
Not a few of the robes which will
be worn in June next are of historic
interest. In some cases they have
been in the families for as long as
two hundred years and more. Great
store Is sel by these mantles, and
succeeding generations are loath to
have them altered, save only where
repair is absolutely necessary. This
explains why, as was observed at the
coronation of his late Majesty, some
of i lie robes seemed too small or too
large for their wearers. They are
old and faded in color, but they are
worn with pride by the descendants
of those who purchased them, maybe
for the coronation of King Charles
the  Second.
Through all these years, beyond
perhaps a slight variation in the cut
of tbe cloak or robe, no change lias
been made. Indeed, It Is more than
probable that the style and shape ns
We Bee II today are to all intents
and purposes Identical with those of
long none by generations. For ail
degrees in the peerage the robes are
the -atn", the rank being denoted by
the number of rows of tails of ermine
in the cape. The mantles, which
are made of rich red velvet, are worn
over full conn dress ami regimentals, Tliis lias, with, one exception,
always been the case. The exception was nt the coronation of King
George IV., when the court designed
a special dress for every rank to be
worn under the robes. Tbe scheme
was not, apparently received with favor. In any cases, It was not repealed.
Many of the robes which are worn
by the peers In the House of Lords
on state occasions are in the nature
of heirlooms, some of them having
been in the families since the days
of Charles II. With these, ns well
as with the coronation robes (which
are quite distinct), there is no inclination on the part of suceeding
generations lo alter them. It must j
be borne In mind, of course, that the
occasions upon which these robes
are worn aret few and far between.
Such  an  occasion   is  that  when  the'
sovereign opens Parliament in person. At such a time it Is often an
easy matter to pick out the lords
of ancient lineage by their robes,
which are faded but valued relics ot
by-goue generations.
POLICY OF AXAHHISTS.
Will   Give   Up   Murder  and   Destroy
Property Only.
The anarchists who divide theii
time between France and England
have, it is said, decided not to resort to murder hereafter, that phase
of crime being too hazardous. Their
policy now seems to be the destruction of property. It is a mistake
to confound anarchists with worklngmen or trades unionists. Anarchists are nol worklngmen; they despise labor of any kind and apparency look upon men who work oi
who employ labor as enemies of the
human race. That M. Gulchard attributes most of the recent destruction to anarchists who have forsaken
the bomb and the dagger for the
wilful damage of state and other
property is extremely significant. The
Patrie publishes information Editor
Masasrd has been able to obtain
about all the information from tha
recent outrages. There were six
bombs in all. One was exploded in
the Rue de Berri. Another was laid
in the Avenue Kleber. The third
was exploded at M. Massard's dwelling. The fourth was covered in a
road. Four of the bombs were manufactured in the same way; In a strong
case and with heavy charges. Bombs
of this make can scatter charges two
hundred yards and both mangle and
kill. The police think they have the
four makers of these bombs but they
have no evidence which could insure
their conviction.

Religious co-operation, or what he
called "first steps towards fellowship in Christ with our Nonconformist, neighbors," was one of the subject dealt with by the Bishop of
Hereford at his diocesan conference
recently.
"Personally," he said, "I welcome
this growth as one of the most hopeful signs in the religious life of our
time, and moreover, as likely to be of
great and lasting service to our own
Church.
"We Anglicans have been from various causes somewhat slow to encourage or help this growth in our
diocesan and parochial affairs; but
it. has begun to come into our life
with irresistible force both from the
study of the scholar and historian,
and from the Christian mission field.
In the mission field especially, facet
to face with all the powers and prac?
tices and miseries of heathendom,
Christions learn to forget their differences and to restrict the conditions of Christian union and fellowship to the things which are fundamentally essential.
"A   great   advance   towards   this
new  union  was strikingly  and  happily exemplified  in   Edinburgh   last
summer by the meeting of the World .
Missionary  conference.    .    .   It  was!
a vision of unity that must have laid j
hold   of  many   hearts,  and   will   not
vanish again.
"Tliis drawing together of Anglicans, Wesleyans, Baptists, Presbyte-1
rians and Independents, thus exhibited, will, I trust, make steady prog- i
ress within  our  own  communion  as'
In others;  and I venture to say to I
our  clergy   that   I   hope   it   will   not:
lie hindered by tiie separatist eplsco-1
pal  utterances  heard  at  our  recent I
' lini'ch  congress.       Such   utterances
should  be estimated  simply as survivals from darker days, nnd should
no   longer    Influence   the  Christian!
min I.
"The days of eplscopalean exclusion and separation are in fact inevitably giving place to the days of
wider brotherhood and clearer in-
Blght Into the mind and spirit of
Christ. The flowing tide of knowledge and goodwill is irrevocably In
(be direction of this newer spirit of
Christian brotherhood.
"When a highly esteemed bishop
tells us that acceptance of episcopacy
is an absolutely necessary condition
and requirement before we can hold
communion and fellowship with
Christians of any oilier denomination, he is surely forgetting that our
Lord left no such rule tor His
church, and laid no such restrictions
upon liis followers; he is refusing
to admit what scholars and historians
have made clear, that whilst the
monarchial episcopate soon became
general In the church, it. was not
from the first a universal or necessary requirement."
Pursuant to Section 7 of the Navigable Waters Protection Act (R. S.
Can.-cap 115) notice is hereby given
that there has been deposited in the

Works at Ottawa and a duplicate in

CANADIAN'S  ADVICE
Hon. Price Ellison Says Dominion Wants
Old Land to Get
Hove on.
Annual   Dinner   in   London   Brings
Prominent Men of Tliis Country
Together.
Speaking at a Canadian club dinner here, Hon. Price Ellison, minister of finance for British Columbia,
said that he was a Manchester man
by birth and a Canadian by adoption,
a Chamberlainite ana Imperialist by
choice. Amid much laughter and
cheering, he stated that Canada
wanted the old country to "get a
move on." "We don't want to have
any dealings with the Ut.Ued States,
which made Britain its dumping
ground," be added. The preference
for Great Britain Had been endorsed
by all parties and preferential trade
was sure to come. The Britisli Isles,
he stated, dropped in Canada would
need an exploration party to find
them. Englishmen did not realize
that Canada wouid soon have a population greater than the United
States. Mr. Ellison devote the greater part of his remarks to Canadian
olitics and a description of the
country.
Lord Strathcona, who presented
loving cups to the club, alluded to
the fact that the club had originated
at the time that it took sixty days to
cross the Atlantic. At that time the
west, which now sent one hundred
millions of bushels of wheat, did not
produce one million, and the only
dealings of the merchants were with
furs from the northwest and timber
from the east. British Columbia was
only known as "the sea of great
mountains." He emphasized the
contrast of potentialities—so great
that their sons should look upon the
present prosperity as a mere bagatelle.
Mr. Justice Grantham said that
on his recent visit to Canada he expected to see a color;.' and had found
e nation more un.1. 1 and loval tl.au
the United King Inn, which suould
adopt somewhat of the more congenial tone towards the Dominion.
He deplored the ignorant action of
British statesmen in the past and
added that the Alaskan boundary
sale was a standing disgrace. Canada
would be of immense strength to
the Empire if justice were done her.
Sir Percy Lake said that he had
reason to be proud of his connection
with the Canadian militia. It is now
possible, he stated, to make a comparison of the value of the force
today with ten years ago and in the
future it will have an influence un-
dreampt of in enforcing peace
throughout the world. So long as It
is willing to help the Empire there
is no need of a written contract. He
added that be hoped to see the time,
when his majesty's commission
would be valid throughout the Empire.
SPOR TS
JEM  .MACE'S CAREER.
The first record of Jem Mace, the
famous oldtimer, who died last week,
Is that when a young man he was
the proprietor ot a travelling booth.
This he moved from place to place
to varibiiB fairs, race courses, and
public gardens in England. In those
days he played a violin. His art In
that respect was at least tolerable—
and he supplied refreshments to the
hungry when he was not handing out
flstcuffs to those who failed to pay
up. At that time Mace was known
to put up his fists with any one for
a side bet of a pound or a guinea.
When Mace was in America in
1896 Tor ills bout with Mike Donovan, lie bad this to say regarding
his life and his career:
"Hl'll be 'anged If i know what
was the lirst light I fought. I fought
every Sunday in Beeston. Everybody fought. We worked on the farm
all week, and on Sunday we fought.
You 'ad to fight in them days. If
a lad met another goin' down the
lane he made a mark on the dirt
wi' 'is foot and then the other lad
ups and wipes it out wi' 'is foot.
Then they was at it. On Sunday we
was fighlin' al lclay. We'd go home
with sore heads and a lev, coppers
in our pocket, and "1'lo'r.y mornln'
we went to furmiu' again."
Mace did not bogl.i Ins ling career
till he was about. 2! years old. His
flrst oppenen' was a nun named
Slack. He whipped him In rlneteen
minutes. BUI Too po. who had nol
been defeated, met Mace on February
17, 1857, and Mace won in the eighteenth   round.     This   victory   placed
Mace in the front rank as a "pugilist,
and he soon was called to the London prize ring, where he disposed of
opponent after opponent.
Mace's most famous fight was with
the champion, Bob Travers, who had
won many battles. The men fought
two days. The first session of milling was interfered with by the police
at the end of six rounds The next
day they re4'm<I fiw.ir-g. After
the fifteenth round, Mace, whoh ad
begun to show his quality, began to
gain headway over Travers, and he
knocked the champ'.-n out in the
twenty-seventh round.
In 1860 Mace was declared champion of the world. Tn 1862 Tom
King challenged Mace, and they
fought a forty-three round battle In
January, the decision going to
Mace.
Then for the next ten years he was
unbeatable. He earned so much money that he had at one time $350,000.
But Mace was a poor manager, aud
after his wfie died his money ran
away from him. He became destitute, and last year he had to apply
for an old age pension. In England
there is an old age pension which
allows five shillings a week to very
person who is over seventy. On this
$1.25 weekly gratuity he lived up
to the time of his death.
Mace's last appearance in America
was on December 14, 1896, when he
boxed Mike Donovan, the one-time
great middleweight champion of the
Broadway Athletic club. Dcnovan,
during the early session of the bout,
threw out his left and caught Mace
sharply on the jaw. Jem stopped
short in his boxing and held up his
hand, " 'Old on a minute," he cried.
Then he drew out a handful of false
teeth, tossed them to his seconds,
and proceeded with the bout.

DESERTING HALL.
How have the mighty fallen. Mr.
John Elvers, who said, not so long
ago that it had to be written down
to be remembered, that he wouldn't
be seen on the stage for a million
dollars a minute, or almost that, Is
going to thrill American audicenees.
Elvers is not going it alone. He
will have as a side kick none other
than J. Callahan, who already has
made good as a monologfst. A
sketch is being written now for Cal.
and John and they will begin rehearsals within a week. This will
not interfere with Ever's engagement
at the College theatre. The new
partners intend to make their first
public appearance during December.
John was not prepared to say what
the one-act sketch would be about,
but it's a safe bet it will not be a
blackface or German turn.    Nor will j
Evers do any dancing.
The Cub infielder is getting to be
one of the most popular of actor
men. A delegation from the Whitney called on him to take a silent
part for a week in "Lower 13." It
seems a Pullman car runs across the
stage in this production and in ono
of the windows Is visible a group of
men playing cards. The idea was to
have John In the card game passing
away the time on his trip from Chicago to Annapolis. Evers said he
didn't believe he would accejit this
proposition, for the hands nrTght run
against him, and then people would
see him in one of his worst moods.

In deciding to place all of Section
1 as an area of local improvement the'
council had taken in a large area.
While opposed to the local improvement plan he would not have disagreed so much had the area stopped
at Eighth street or at Aid. Lynch's
store at tlie most. When it went
to doing the work beyond Aid.
LynCh's lie felt that the money might
be better expended on Sixtli avenue
in opening up the areas to which
it led.
Referring to the high trestle on
Second streel between First avenue
and Third avenue, which is estimated to cost $3300, Aid. Hilditch said
that while the residents paid for
it yel the credit of the city was being
taken up to pay for something that
could have been better expended in
other  places.
Affecting Credit.
Section 1 was entitled to a large
share of the street expenditure because it is the business section. If
the money continued to be spent at
the rate it was spent there would
be little left for the outside sections.
The city officials had a lot of work
to do. There were none too many
and he did not believe they were
paid too high  salaries.
He heartily concurred with the
mayor on the question of the G.T.P.
assessment question. Thai question
should  be left  to settle itself.
Taking  up   the  argument  of  Aid.
Naden as to the head tax Aid. Hil-
ditch said that the city solicditor was I
asked   for   his   opinion   twice   before [
they struck  out  the head tax.   His j
opinion   was  that  the  vote  did  not |
depend upon the head tax.    Later he
reversed   his   opinion   and   gave   the
opinion that the head tax would havo
to   be   imposed   in   order   to   ensure
the vote to worklngmen.    The mem-:
bers of the council were not to blame
for following the advice of their so-;
licltor.
Building Bylaw.
Aid. Hilditch took a great deal of j
credit for the building bylaw that
had been put through the council.
The building inspector deserved
praise for what he had done to see
that the provisions of that bylaw
were carried out.
The outlying sections of the city,
with respect to plank roadways, had
got about all that could be expected.
In the matter of sewers, however,
there was a lot to be done yet. From
an economic standpoint it was cheaper lo put in sewers just as soon as
possible.
He   did   not   favor    the    contract
system   of   doing   work.       The   city
council had not lived up to Its undertaking promised by Mayor Stork's*
platform  to  have 'the work done by!
station work wherever possible. Day'
labor lias  not   been  tried   very   much
but when the engineer did get down
to   thai    there   was   a    saving.      On
Second street he believed that about
$500 had been saved on a contract
of about 53,000.
Dr.  Mclniyic.
Dr.   Mclntyre,  after a  jocular in-1
troduction, said  lie would nol be In
the council next year, lie hadcometo
the conclusion that Aid. Naden was
about   right  when  he said  the best
plan «;is to do as little as possible.
The   members   of   the   council   had
given   all  the  plums  to   the  fellows
who opposed them and when it came i
around   to   their   friends   there   was
nothing   left.     That   was   how   The;
Empire was left out.    He paid a compliment   to   Aid.   I'altuiio,   who   had
acquitted himself well.    He believed j
first council would be a credit to the
city.
Aid, Pattullo.
Aid.    Pattullo    explained    thai    a
great part of the work of the coun-'
Cll  was done In committee.
Taking up the fiscal policy of the I
city Aid. Pattullo said thai the city's
work  was carried  out   on  the local!
Improvement  plan.    That  policy he
agreed with.    The principle pursued
under such a system was to borrow
money from  banks to carry on  the!
work.    Then when tite exact cost was
ascertained    to    raise    the    sum    by
debenture.
In the case of Prince Rupert the.
Hank of .Montreal had come and offered $1,110(1,000. The city paid interest only on the amount used. Had
tiie plan been pursn%d of raising the
money by putting bonds on the market il would have resulted in the
paying of interest of $42,000 for ten
months. A profit to the city of $9,000
would be saved under the system pursued.
The cblty of Prince Rupert started
out with a new business. It is preferable to have the recommendation
of a financial institution like the
Hank of Montreal to go to the London markel without the endorsemenl
of the! Hunk of Montreal. To Ko to tin
London markel without the backln ■
of a financial institution would be
folly. Another consideration is that
when it was suggested they should
go to the London market the financial market was not in a satisfactory
condition. The city received a very
severe jolt in its financial arrange-
■jments early in the negotiations. It
is significant that after Mr. Sweeney
visited here and saw the character
of the work being done here he
went to Montreal, when, in spite of
the resistance of the G. T. P., he
wired that the city should be allowed
$600,000. They could fairly claim
that the business of the city was
being transacted In a business-like
way.
The policy of the council was to
develop the business section in a
permanent way, to provide plank
roadways for the outlying sections
and to provide water and sewers also
In these parts.
On the matter of the telephone if
it had not been for himself the city
would never have a telephone system of its own. He knew that the
B. C. Telephone company wanted to
come in. He had made a proposition to the Board of Trade to have
a telephone company formed, giving the city 40 per cent, of the stock.
The Board of Trade properly refused
this on the ground that it should
be owned by the city.
The telephone has cost only $52,-
000 while $8,000 was held to extend  the  system.
To Fight G. T. P.
Referring to The Journal's editorial of tiie day, Aid. Pattullo gave
the editor credit for wanting to be
fair but he took exception to what
was stated as being the stand taken
by himself. Naming the editor and
calling attention to his presence, the
latter asked if Aid. Pattullo wanted
the matter gone into there. Receiving an affirmative answer, a dialogue
of a few minutes followed, after
which it appeared the matter was
more fully understood. Then Aid.
Pattullo launched into the question
of the charge of ownership of The
Optimist, when he advanced a brand
new reason for its existence. He
said there had been a time when
there was grave danger of the city
being handed over to the G. T. P.
.Members of the council felt that they
must have a paper that would properly represent this city. They accordingly bought The Optimist.
The policy of the council has been
to distribute the printing among the
different eslablishments in the city,
just the same as was done in other
lines of business.
Grant to Clerk.
Mr. Angle asked if it was true that
there had been a donation made by
the council to the city clerk.
Aid. Pattullo said there had been
no donation. He preferred to look
upon the money voted in another
light. Tiie clerk and auditor had
had a lot of extra work. They were
assuredly entitled to the extra grant
that had been made to them. He
believed in paying for service.
Aid. Smith.
Aid. Smith said that while be had
not been as active in the council's
business as some others he had given
all the time he could to the city
council. He had no scraps with Ihe
papers. They had all treated him
With a great deal of courtesy. He
had been courteously treated also by
the mayor. They had worked very
harmoniously.
Dealing with the electric light company's work, he refered to the work
started by Mr. Milne of Vancouver before the council assumed control. It
bad been deemed wise not to go on
with that in view of the fact that
it would cost about $80,000. Operations were stopped on that plant In
consequence. Other propositions
came up; Later It was decided to
build a plant, owned by the city on
property owned by it. Aboul New
Year there would be light from tills
plant. That plant would light the
streets very liberally with half the
capacity of the plant.
Cost of Plant,
Going Into the cost of Ihe work he
gave the  following approximate  figures:—Labor,  $4,826;  engines, etc.,
$3,500;    boilers,   $550;    poles,   etc.,
$5(10;   roadway   around   the   works,
$700;   building,  $5,000;   real  estate,
$5,000;  boilers furnished by the B,
C. Tie and Timber company, $2,500; j
.incidentals,  $2,000;   making a  rota] |
cost of  $33,976.
II is not expected to get any revenue out of this. Dy the city paying
for its lights there would be a stand
oft.
Two 150 kilowatt generators would
be Installed. The planl and additional cost which would be necessary would amount to $66,000.
At, 15 cents per k.w, hour a fair
revenue could it was estimated lie
derived.
Telephone System.
The   following   figures   were  then
ven on the matter of the telephone
stem: —
The   original    company    had    ex
pended about $15,524.25 on installation. Since the city took it over
there had been expended:—On construction, $25,618.45; on maintenance, $956.74; on operating expenses, $1,849; making a total of
$43,959.39. For rentals there was
about $4,115 derived, leaving $39,-
143.44 as the cost. This was with
34 0 phones In operation.
On the monthly revenue he showed
that their worth would be $1,190.50.
The cost of labor was $670, leaving
a profit of $520 a month. This was
on the basis of 340 phones being In
use. There was a capacity of 600
phones and these would all be installed in time. If the plant were
working to its capacity there would
be $780 morerevenue. The additional
cost of operating would be about
$100 a month, so that a clear profit
of $1,200 a monlh or over $10,000
a year would result from a system
costing about $40,000.
In closing Aid. Smith lamented
that he had not been able to give
more time to the affairs of the city!
His time, however, was bought by
the company he worked for and he
was not able to give more of his time
than he had given to the work.
Aid. Lynch.
Aid. Lynch proceeded to deal with
the question of street work. The
council started out feeling early in
the proceedings that the $12,000,000
assessment might fairly be expected
to be materially reduced. It was
realized that with the sum available
there was no chance to grade the
whole townsite. Not more than one-
quarter of it could be gone over. It
was conceded that it was not as Important to grade the residential section as it was to grade the business
sections.
Having come to the conclusion to
grade the business section it became
necessary to decide upon what was
the business section. He felt that
the section which they decided upon
was assuredly the business section.
It was an easy matter for people who
had a practical knowledge to say
how work could be clone. He felt
proud of being connected with that.
Frontage Plan.
The policy upon which the majority of the council had been elected, of doing the street work on the
frontage plan, was being carried out
to the letter. It was the wisest
plan he still felt.
Contracts had been cut into as small
sections as it could be done. He
did not believe in the day labor system. It would be unwieldy, he feared. The business was done as the
members of the council would do
their own business. If the members
of the city council had wanted to
build up a Tammany ring it could
not have been better done than by
employing day labor.
They had been criticised by men
whose only qualification was their
ignorance, which gave them the gall
to criticise the work.
If it was unfair and was not contemplated in the power given a council to raise the credit of the city for
twenty years, would it not be worse
to use it for fifty years.
He denied that lie had ever shown
any disposition to turn contracts
from the Westholme Lumber company.
in the matter of sewers marked
progress had not been made except
thai it was promised that the trunk
sewer should be paid out of genera]
revenue. It was the intention to have
the other sewer work done as a work
of local improvement.
Aid. Mobley.
Aid. Mobley, owing to the late,
hour, said he would speak very briefly. He was proud of the stand he
had taken and he felt he would be
given the chance to take another
sland next year. He was prepared to
defend all his actions with respect
to the police. He would give all
residents a fair chance.
The meeting closed with cheers for
King George.
