THREATEN TO HOLD
AN EARLY ELECTION
Unless the Opposition Desists From its Obstruction of
Reciprocity Laurier Government Indicate That
Appeal Will be Made Before Christmas—
Tour During Recess.
(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, May 9.—There will be
a general election before Christmas
if the Opposition clings to its avowed
intentiou of oustructing reciprocity
after the par'lamentary adjournment
is ended, according to a high government official.
The great stumbling blocks in the
way now are the enforced absence of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier at the coronation
and the fact that the Canadian west
will be under-represented in parlia
ment until there has been a redistribution of the electoral divisions.
This redistrioution cannot be
made until tlie census has been completed. These figures will be available in October. If the Opposition
then is still obstructing reciprocity
it is said the redistribution uill will
be given precedence over reciprocity
and an election will follow.
The members of parliament on
both sides of politics will tour the
country during the coming recess for
the purpose of discussing reciprocity.
DO NOT WANT ROAD
Petition Received  Against  the  Plank
Way on Seventh Avenue-
Contrary Opinions.
Condition   of   Second   Avenue   from
Traffic Standpoint Is Not
Satisfactory
The city council, sitting last night
had to deal with several matters
with reference to the streets of the
city.
A petition was received asking
that the plank roadway on Seventh
avenue from Fulton to Dunsmuir
6treet should not be built.
In reply to questions His Worship
said that the petition seemed to
have been changed. It originally was
worded as being against the construction of the road unless by contract. These latter words had been
struck out.
B. Walsh, a resident on the street,
asked permission to address the
council. He said there were about
one-third of the residents did not
want the road, objecting to the expense. The remaining two-thirds
wanted the work to go on. He
wanted  to see the work on himself.
Aid. Clayton felt that there was a
good chance here to have the work
done under the public works department.
His Worship said that the work
would go on unless there was at
least 51 per cent who were opposed
to it.
The petition was referred to the
streets committtee to look into the
matter.
Sidewalk on Second
The streets committee expressed
its approval of permission to build
a sidewalk on Second avenue between Seventh and Eighth streets.
It was recommended that the work
be done under the supervision of the
city engineer at tlie expense of those
concerned. The report was against
the giving of the plank taken from
the roadway as this had to be refused at other times.
Aid. Kerr called attention to the
fact that this plank piled there was
to be returned lo the road, so that
the council would be liable to the
contractors if It were taken away.
Aid. Morrissey called attention to
the serious condition that existed
there with no way by which the fire
apparatus could bo taken there. He
thought something should be done.
His Worship suggested that the
committee might go into tills again.
It was not wise to establish a different precedent, lie thought the
committee should do all it could to
assist the  residents.
The matter was referred to tlie
streets committee for reconsideration.
Centre street Repairs
Aid. Newton introduced the subject of the repairs to Centre street.
He thought the city should replank
it as it was dangerous.
It was pointed out thai the streel
was on the Grand Trunk Pacific reserve and  the olty was nol  liable.
It was finally decided that . the
streets committee should confer with
the (lrand Trunk Pacific's general
superintended o:. the matter looking to something being done to
avoid danger.

ASSESSMENT FIGURES
FOR PRINCE RUPERT
J. C. McLennan Has Completed His Duties and Handed
Over Roll to Council—Some Features of
the Latest Estimate of Values
in the City.
The city assessor has prepared liis roll for the year and it has been
duly turned over to the council. The notices of assessment have been
sent out notifying all property owners of the value of the assessment.
Prince Rupert has adopted the principle of taxing land values only,
so that while the value of improvements is put upon the notices, according to the statute, there will be no taxation   upon    these   improvements.
The assesment for the year as made by J. C. McLennan, stands open
to revision by the court of revision to be appointed later by the council to hear appeals.
The assessment of the city for the year shows the following:
Total land assessment    $13,228,950
Total  improvement assessment   .... 1,395,440
   $14,624,390
Total Government land exemption . .$1,564,680
Total Government improvement exemption         100,850
 $1,665,530
Total General Hospital land exemption  $      17,900
Total General Hospital improvement
exemption           20,000
 37,900
 $   1,703,530
Total taxable values  $12,920,960
Last year's assessment showed land values $12,223,041, with $497,-
965 improvements.
The division of the assessment into sections this year gives the following with respect to property held by the Grand Trunk Pacific, the
government and also that which is under negotiation to be acquired ly
the city from the railway company:

OPENING THE CAMPAIGN
AGAINST RECIPROCITY
R. L. Borden Has Started for the West to Conduct a
Series of Meetings—Significant Meeting With
Premier McBride at Ottawa—Leaders
Stand on the Agreement.
(Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, May 9.—R. L. Borden
left yesterday for the prairie province tour. Tlie first meeting in Win.
nipeg will be June 19. He will spend
about three weeks in .Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, returning in
time for tlie reassembling of tlie
House of Commons the third week
in July.
He will not touch British Columbia, leaving the Conservative members to look after their own meetings in that province.
McBride's Iteccption
On his way to the coronation, Premier McBride was the guest at Ottawa of R. L. Borden and the Conservative members. During the
speech making it was suggested that
Mr. McBride and the other Conservative provincial leaders should come
into the next federal fight.
Air. McBride had a magnificent
reception. He declared that the
guiding principle of the Conservative party was country first and if
the eventuality came about, some of
the men now administering provincial affairs might be impelled to respond to the nation's call. The significance of this utterance could not
be misunderstood and evoked stento
rian cheers.
Leader's Views
Mr. Borden said in part:
'Canada today is confronted with
the greatest issue which this country has witnessed since 1867. I will
not weary you with discussing that
question, but ask you to remember
that in 1902, and again in 1907, the
government of this country at the
Imperial Conference at London,
pledged itself to a policy of preferential trade between the United
Kingdom and the Great Dominions
of the Empire, and affirmed by res-
olution thai such a policy would
stimulate  mutual  commercial  inter-
SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES ARE LARGE
IMPROVEMENT TAXES
City Council Has no Intention of Imposing Such This
Year.
Aid,  Morrissey  Raises  the  Question
ut Meeting  Held Last
Night
Government at Ottawa Vote Large Sums With the Evident Intention of Making an Early Appeal
to the Electorate of the Country—
A Record has Been Reached
It was made quite evident at last
night's council meeting that there
would be no taxing of improvements
this year. The subject came up on
n question asked by A'd. Morrissey.
He called attention to the fact that
in the notices sent out this year the
improvements were valued, hi this
respect it differed lie thought from
last  year.
His Worship saiel the time had not I
arrived when the policy of the council would be fixed as to taxing Improvements. He personally was not
in favor of taxing improvements.
He did not believe that any member
of the council favored taxing improvements. The assessor was required to give all this information.
This wns nol taxing, it was assessing
the property.
Special to The Journal)
OTTAWA, .May 9.—Further supplementary estimates for the current fiscal year have been tabled in
tliethe house. They amount to $17,-
020,980 and bring up the total of
the estimates for the year ending
March SI, 1912, to the record sum
of $166,289,180.
This is an increase of $23,11 I ,506
over the estimates  voted  [or   1911,
and an Increase of $44,616,803 over
the total voted tor 1910,
Of these new Bupplementarles the
consolidated fund is to be charged
with $8,746,931, and capital account With  $8,274,948.
That these lavish estimates presage an early appeal to tlie people is
indicated not only by their volume
bin by the distribution of the proposed votes.

course and strengthen the Empire.
Consider the proposed agreement
with the United States, to which our
government claims to have pledged
the hondor of Canada, and tell me
whether it does not absolutely destroy any prospect of consummating
that policy of reciprocity within the
Empire. If there is any doubt upon
this question let the answer be given
by a very great statesman, the President of the United States. The man
who holds that office has probably
greater power than the ruler of any
other civilized country in the world.
He combines in himself powers
which under our constitution ard
vested in tlie Crown and In the
Prime Minister. The high position
and remarkable ability and foresight of President Taft require ua
to give mo^t profound attention to
his view of the etfect of our government's action.
"The Parting of the Ways"
"On January 26 last, in his message to Congress, he emphasized the
statement  that Canada is    at    the
partin gof the ways.    As Mr. Foster
has well asked:    'What are the ways
to  which  the    president    alludes?'
One of the paths is that closer relation with the great    empire    whose
flag floats over us, and the other is
the path which leads to closer    and
closer   relations   with     the     United
States    by means of a trade    agreement from  which  that  country    ex-
eludes the rest of the Empire,    nut
President Taft,  has  been  still  more
definite, in a later utterance. Speaking in New York on the 27th April,
he observed, in referring to Canada:
'The bond uniting Ihe Dominion with
the  .Mother Country  is  light  and  almost   Imperceptible.'    The  concluding paragraph of the same speech Is,
however, of the  most  pregnanl   Importance and demands the mosl   serious consideration from every Canadian who stands fur the    unity    of
Canada  and  the  Integrity    of    the
Empire.    Listen to the words of the
Presidenl of the United States:
" 'I have, sniel that this was a critical time in the solution of the i|iies-
tion of reciprocity, it is critical
because unless ii is now decided favorably ii Is exceedingly probable
thai no such opportunity will ever
again come to the United States. Tho
forces which are ut work In England
and In Canada to separate her by a
Chinese wall from the United States
and in make her pari of no In»i>«■—
rial commercial band, reaching from
England around the world to England again by a system of preferential tariffs, will derive an Impetus
from the rejection of ihis treaty, and
if we would have reciprocity with all
the advantages that I have described.
and that I earnestly and Blncerely
believe will follow Its adoption, wo
must take it now or give it up for-

HIGH FLIER OF B.C.
Gibson the Victoria Designer of Special
Aeroplane Ras Gone to Mainland.
He
Will    Conduct     Experiments
Delta and Attempt to Fly
Buck to < 'npital
Aviator W. M. Gibson, of Victoria,
B. C, will conduct experiments lasting possibly over two months on tho
farm of Hon. T. W. Paterson, in
Delta.
At the end of that period if all
goes well he hopes to make a flight
from Delta to Victoria.
New Principles
The aeroplane with which Mr.
Gibson is now experimenting, is ono
built entirely to his own plans, and
contains a number of features not
common to other heavier-than-air
machines. One of these is that its
length is greater than its width, in
the proportion of fifty feet to thirty.
All other aeroplanes whether biplanes, triplanes or monoplanes, fly
laterally extended, but Mr. Gibson's
machine flies endwise, and as a result of this reversal of established
ideas, he claims that it is impossible
for his machine to turn over in the
air.
"I have started my models upside
down," said the aviator, with a!
smile, "and they right themselves in
two feet."
That the danger of turning over in
the air is one of the greatest experienced by airmen is well known, and
Mr. Gibson possesses a grim illustration of this in the shape of a
photograph of the machine in which
Hoxsey was killed, falling through
the air upside down.
Planes of Wood
Another new idea of Mr. Gibson's
is to have the planes of his machine
made of thin veneered wood, instead
of the silk fibre usually used for this
purpose. He explained in an ingenious manner how this idea had
come to him,
"1 was driving in an automobile
with the propellor of my machine
across my knees. The car was going
about fifteen miles an hour and
there was an eight mile breeze, as
a result of which I found that the
wooden propellor was actually lifted
off my knees.
"I decided to make experiments
with wooden planes, and had several
models constructed that way. One
was one square foot in area and it
weighed a pound. I discovered that
to drive It, only one-eighth of a
pound thrust was required, while.]
three-eighths of a pound was necessary with the same model fitted with
fibre planes."
Frame  Indestructible
Mr. Gibson claims that the frame
of his machine is practically indestructible. It is fitted with eighty
springs, besides those in the wheels,
and could be dropped from a height
of one hundred feet without sustaining any damage. This combined
with its non-turning qualities, makes
the aeroplane one of the safest yet
designed.
The engine used is a six-cylinder,
sixty horsepower engine of Mr. Gibson's own make, the second he has
built for this purpose, and the propellor is 8 "2," built of Douglas fir,
cut from a tree in the Douglas park,
Victoria,
Among the other advantages
claimed for it by its inventor, the
Gibson aeroplane, owing to the arrangements of i lie planes, can be
packed in a tar smaller bulk than
any other make of machine, and can
he. taken apart iii one hour and reassembled in two hours by "Xpert
operators.
Successful Flights
Lasl fall, Mr. Gibson made a number of successful flights in a machine of practically the same make
as this he has now completed, with
the exception thai the old machine
had fibre planes. Willi the wooden
planes, Mr. Gibson figures on a lifting power one-third greater than he
could obtain with a similar surface
of  fibre plane.
He is of the opinion that in less
than two months, If there are no
hitches in ihe programme, he will
have completed hie experiments, and
will then attempi the flight to Victoria. The machine novi to be n i ted
■ ' . '..n of three years'
:ontIi ou tud i- ol e he problem of
ai , ii-ii igation and continuous ex-
arlo i devices for
Improving      i i lent    model    of
fliers, and Mr. Gibson considers that I
on the t I rack',
Even ti e Bmall t <  of bi Ing
able   to pile k it  in li ss bulk and put
it together as quickly,  would single
it out as the machine par excellence
for army use.
Lieutenant Governor Paterson has
placed his Delta ranch at Mr. Gibson's disposal fo- the purpose of experiment.

AGAINST ORIENTALS
Premier McBride Says Laws Will Be
Enforced  Against Employing
Chinese in Lumber Camps
That serious breaches of the law
regulating and restricting the employment of certain classes of labor
in timber camps throughout this
province are being made was
brought to the attention of the Premier, as a matter of notorious fact,
by Mr. Murray S. Potts, president of
the United Brotherhood of America,
and Mr. Horace J. Robinson, secretary-treasurer of that powerful and
influential labor organization, who
waited upon the prime minister a
few days ago as a delegation from
the brotherhood, which is more generally known as the Loggers' Union.
Briefly, the charges formulated by
President Potts were to the effect
that the law is being consistently
violated in three important respects,
viz.: The employment in timber
camps on leasehold and licencehold
lands of Chinese and other Orientals,
that engineers other than those
properly certificated are being employed in numerous camps and that
some few camps in the northerly
coast district are importing and employing men in direct contravention
of the Alien Contract Labor laws.
The representatives of the brotherhood were introduced by Mr.
Michael Manson, M. P. P. for Comox,
who pointed out that the charges
formulated touched upon a very serious matter in the coast districts,
particularly in view of the fact that
many men are at present out of employment in the province who might
legitimately and advantageously be
engaged in the lumber camps.
President Potts had his case exceedingly well in hand and presented
it with marked moderation and effectiveness, being assured by the
Premier that the matters complained
of would obtain the immediate attention of the government, and any
parties who may be found to persist
in violations of the law dealt with
as its penalties provide, the government being determined to enforce
obedience to the law in every respect.
The brotherhood would seem to
watch with especial zeal the interests of its many members and to
thoroughly grasp the proper proce-
duc to be adopted upon necessity
arising for the assertion and protection of the loggers   interests.

I GRAND TRUNK PACIF
TOWNSITE
w
ELLISON
The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
ownership.
ELLISON
w
SEE THE OFFICIAL MAP.—The
first glance will show you that
ELLISON Is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite in British Columbia.    Does that start you thinking?
tftl
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact Is a very important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
in extent in every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the hub
sf the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were doing when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity of Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small townB, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining district and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Grand Trunk Pacific has put its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
believe the company will do as much
for townsites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison. If
you desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
 o	
STUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order class with his wares. ELLISON is in the Missouri class. Therefore, I am not telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that can be readily verified.
 —o	
STUDY     THAT      MAP.—If      you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,     then     you
should put your money into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
money.
STUDY THAT MAP.—It is not
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not interested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with the exception of ELLISON.
ELLISON is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. 'Sou may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is  now   being  opened   up,   and   for
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both by rail and water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared witli a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
 o ■
STUDY THAT MAP.—You will
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
STUDY THAT MAP.—ROGERS'
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $lf>0
for inside lots and v250 for corners.
Terms—10 per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the
balance on easy terms;  no interest.

OLD  WATER RIGHTS
Agreement is Reached at Ottawa Whereby the Holders are to be
Protected.
Representative of Capital   in   Province Tells of the Activity
Along That Line
The completion of a most satisfactory understanding with the Dominion government in respect to the
equitable adjustment of water rights
within and contiguous to the Dominion railway belt lands in this
province, as such rights and records
may have been effected by the recent
decision of the privy council asserting the exclusive jurisdiction of the
Domwinion therein, is briefly reported in a telegram from Attorney Gen-
Bowser, received by the premier
just prior to the departure of the
first minister en route to London.
It will be remembered that Hon.
Mr. Ross left a fortnight or more
ago for the federal capital, lo take
up with the authorities at Ottawa
the question of adjusting conflicting
records In the affected territory and
a'so to secure some recognition of
long existent provincial records
wilhin the railway belt, over which
the federal courts have affirmed an
exclusively  federal  jurisdiction.
The minister for lands was recently joined at Ottawa by Hon. Mr.
Bowser, and their joint representations appear to have already produced most desirable results, the attorney general telegraphing that
Hon. Frank Oliver has agreed that
when the legislation in respect to
water titles obtains enactment, it is
his Intention to bring down a simul-
taeous order-in-council acknowledging all old records "as of their
dates," so as to give them whateve-
legal status they should have had as
originally granted.
Afterwards It will be necessary to
Investigate their respective positions
as between themselves, It being proposed  that  such  Investigation   shall
b made by a joint board of commissioners.
Equitable Understanding
This equitable understanding will
be received with the greatest appreciation by all old record holders who
cannot but recognize the energetic
and efficient efforts in their behalf
that have been put forward by the
provincial ministers.
The ruling of the judicial committee of the privy council which
has been referred to, together with
the more recent judgment of Mr.
Justice Gregory denying the existence of any right within the territory in question under provincial
record, have brought about a situation of very great hardship and injustice to a considerable number of
owners of lands both within the railway belt and just outside that
sphere, where dependence has to be
placed for irrigation facilities upon
streams having their origin within
the belt and afterwards traversing
provincial lands. By the late judgment of Mr. Justice Gregory, all water records filed by such ranchers
since the enactment of the terms of
union have been held to be nullified
by the decision of the privy council
affirming Dominion jurisdiction, and
in several cases great hardship has
resulted lo ranchers near the bell
lands borders, their water supply being shut off, and, deprived of Irrigation facilities, their facilities for the
working of llieir properties being destroyed.
In one such case a well-to-do provincial rancher making a specialty of
blooded Shorthorn stock, has been
virtually bankrupted, his extensive
acres—lacking water through the
diversion, by holders of Dominion
record of much later date than his
own, of the natural water courses
from the Dominion belt—having
dried up with ruin to the crop, and
he having been forced to dispose of
his herd of valuable thoroughbred
stock as common beef cattle at a
very small proportion of their actual
worth.
The arrangement reported by
Hon. Mr. Bowser would seem to
open in its entirety the question of
water rights affected, as that these
may be amicably adjusted in a manner to protect the equitable interests
of all concerned.

Railway, whether na yprogramme of
development was contemplated with
regard to Vancouver Island by his
compnay. "No," he replied, "we
have no development plans for Vancouver Island. Why should we go
into that island, whose great wealth
of resource is now approximately understood, which would mean paying
a substantial price for any of its resources we might seek to acquire,
when we have such a virgin field as

every bit as rich in variety of natural
resources as even Vancouver Island?
While the Canadian Pacific and Canadian Northern are developing Vancouver Island we shall devote ourselves in all probability to the Queen
Charlottes."       ,
In a recent article In the Financial
World we dealt with the exceptional
openings which Britisii Columbia
offers to the British capitalist, and
with the particular attractions of the
group of islands above referred to by
Mr. Chamberlin. The completion of
the Grand Trunk Pacific line from
Moncton, New Brunswick, to Prince
Rupert, brings the Queen Charlotte
Islands into direct touch with Canada's markets, and removes the one
obstacle which has hitherto hindered
the development of a richly mineralized and densely timbered region. A
Financial World representative has
recently had the pleasure of a
lengthy and interesting interview
with Mr. J. G. Johnston, of the
Western Steel Corporation, of Vancouver. Although well known as one
of the oldest pioneers and explorers
in British Columbia, Mr. Johnston is
still a young man. Active and wiry,
with keenly observant eyes, he is an
excellent type of colonist, and knows
the province intimately from one
end to the other. He confirmed in
every particular what has already
been said on I he subject in the Financial World, und was able lo supplement it by many details from his
close personal knowledge of the
country. On tlie subject of timber
h,. is un enthusiast, and he pointed
out that Britisii Columbia undoubtedly possesses a greater quantity of
timber than any other part of Nortli
America. The minister of finance,
in his recent budget statement, announced thai tlie total amount of
lumber cut in 1910 amounted to
1,040,000,000 feet, valued at $17,-
160,000, an increase of $6,160,000
as compared with 1000. It is believed that the rapidly growing demand for timber Willi Increase the
value of this commodity by 50 per
cent in the near future, and Mr.
Johnston emphasized the exceptional
opportunities thus offered to investors in moderately capitalized and
carefully managed lumber and sawmill companies. Mr. Johnston,
among his    many    oilier    activities,
played a prominent part in the locution of the extensive coal deposits
now being developed on Graham Island, which are likely to be of the
greatest importance to the commvee
of the north.
The remarkable speed with which
the industries of this prosperous
province are being successfully matured is due in no small degree to
the Premier, the Hon. Richard .McBride. His clear, statesmanlike
grasp of the political situation, his
remarkable business-like foresight,
and his vigorous yet charming personality, make a brilliant combination which is proving of incalculable
benefit to British Columbia. Ils is
pround of his province, and great
and varied tnough his responsibilities are, he is always ready to grant
an interview to anyone having suggestions to make in the interests of

The late Senator Klkins used to
tell a story of Bige Brown.
Bige, he explained, lived In EI-
kins. Meeting him one day in the
main street, the senator said: "Bige,
do you know of anybody that's got a
horse for sale?"
Bige, chewing gum, gave the senator a  patronizing  smile.
"Well, senator," he said, "I guess
Bill Hurst has. I sold him one yesterday."

Till: ASSESSMENT
The assessor's figures have been
announced showing a total land valuation in lite city of thirteen millions and :i quarter, which is about
a million higher than that of last
year.
The value of Improvements, however, advanced In a marked way, being nearly three limes what it was
last year, which is an indication of
very material advancement,
The city council will have to
await the revision of the assessment
-oil in June when the question of
striking the rate on the roll as it
leaves the court of revision will be
considered.

the two men    stood
toured  the proi im e in  : he Inte      ;
of  ,i   labor  inert,v.
A cleavage, however can e and Mr.
Hawthornthv alte bi oke \\ !th his former friend, The. presi ni Socialisl
leader stayed by the principles of the
labor parly, thereby losing his position in the coal department  of    the
Nanalmo   Coal   Company    1   being
reduced to extreme poverty. Mr.
Smith, however, mol; the other
course. His ze'iil for labor waned
and he sought prefermenl through
the parly in power ui Ottawa until
in a very few years his labor affiliations were forgotten.
Whatever may be said against Mr.
Hawthornthwaite, Hie most inveterate enemy could hardly be expected
to say that he did not remain true to
tne Interests he represented. Session
after session he has stood by tho
labor Interests and choosing his time
succeeded in gelling nets passed to
improve the conditions of ihe working ihisses. Sometimes it was felt
he went farther than he should have
done. Sometimes his language wns
exceedingly extravagant, but never
could ii lie sahl that he sacrificed the
labor Interests,
In pursuing the course he did, he
did incur the enmity of many of the
Conservatives and all the Liberals.
Mercilessly did he expose the'
latter party's dealings    with    labor.
Now that the member for Nanaimo leas come Into the' possession of
.-nine money, he is being held up to
derision by the Liberal organ and an
attempl is made to i onvey the Idea
that Mr. Hawthornthwaite has
waxed rich al the expense of the
working men.
Those «ho have had the pleasure
■f know iiin Mr, Hawthornthwatle, or
who have followed  his course, will
 iy    loath    I'l   lee,|ie\e      Ileal       Ihe'
itory lias any foundal inn. The So-
-inlist leader never gin,, any signs
■ if being nei ardent lover nf money.
Off the platform ami away from the
Legislature where he loved to hold
forth in the strongesl of language
agalnsl the conditions of the time
and in support of the idealistic conditions of Socialism, Mr. Hawthornthwaite Is a good companion and the
intlthesis of the' ctiaracter so
many n ei e lm liieeel to believe him
from    his ies.    Moreover, he
was slow to "lei loose the dogs of
war" in any flghi with opponents.
He >vas a fair fighter, profiting by
the le son tnugl ' In the ring in his
younger days when he was a good
amateur boxer, .Many a tine' the
Socialisl leader withheld an attack
which would have, hail il:- i ffei t, be
.   ;   , i ; '    . ■       ie     fall    to
introduce the matter against a political  foe.
We do not pretend to know the
source of Mr. Hawthornthwaite's income. We, however, are not prepared to believe he exploited the
labor men in acquiring it. He belongs to a family that had wealth in
the Old Land. His father, who was
far years a familiar figure about
Victoria and other parts of Vancouver Island, possesed the pride
that is so often found in men of his
type, and it is generally known that
he refused to put up a legal fight
for possessions in the Old Land to
which it was recognized he was entitled. It is quite possible that revenue from thai source may have fallen lo his heirs anil we would he more
inclined io believe that the member
mi' Nanaimo had acquired money In
ileal way, which under preseiil-day
conditions must lie accepted as perfectly proper rather than by taking a
course thai was not strictly honorable ns far as his labor friends are
concerned.

POLICE PROTECTION
VANCOUVER—Mr. Justice Gregory, iii addressing the grand jury at
the opening of the assizes here this
morning, remarked upon the seriousness of the docket, which contains
eight cases of murder, six of attempting to kill, a number of eases
of assault and robbery and of perjury. He said that it seemed to him
that the city was in a perilous position, and the remedy lay in a strong
police lone and more men. While
Vancouver was to be> congratulated
on its material progress, that was
not everything, and that progress
might become only notoriety unless
safety could be guaranteed for life
or limb. Every criminal who escaped
detection or punishment added to
the peril, as it encouraged others to
come In. He called on all to do their
duly in preventing crime.

thai the population ihis year will

I1EAI) MAN  GIVES TltoUH.K
VANCOUVER — It. would seem
thai when a man is considered legally dead he ought to remain dead, as
resurrection appears only to cause
trouble. At least this seems to have
been the case of the father of
Charles G. Orr, who died intestate in
this city in November, 1007, leaving
a wife and one daughter. Under tho
Inheritance laws the bulk of the
I'siuie went to the father, Instead of
in the willow ami daughter, bul the
father had been absent from Canada
for many years and the last heard of
Mm wns in the United States In 1888,
In March, 1908, when Mr. It. B.
Bills, official administrator for tho
province, was called upon lo make
distribution of the estate lie received
affldadvits from Mrs. Orr and others
setting forth that to the best of their
belief Mr. Orr senior was dead. On
these affidavits Mr. Ellis was ordered to sett'e the estate, and he
distributed $4,500 in equal shares
between mother and daughter, A
month later the supposedly dead Mr.
Orr turned up and brought action to
haye the letters of administration of
his estale revoked and for an order
made directing tlie money paid out
by Mr. Kllis to be repaid to him.
By judgment of the lower court the
money was directed to no repaid to
Mr, Orr and Mr, Ellis, as administrator, was forced to bear the brunt of
restitution. Against this Mr. Ellis
appealed and the court of appeal in a
ludgment banded down unanimously
allowed Ihe appeal nnd set aside the
judgment   against   Mr.   Ellis,  though
a'lowing it to stand in other re-
spects. It was held that Mr. Ellis
had only obeyed the order of the
court.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
OPENING CAMPAIGN
AGAINST RECIPROCITY
(Continued from Page One)
Parliament by force of their numerical majority, and to deny to the
people of Canada any voice upon
this, the greatest question that has
arisen since confederation. For this
the government has no mandate, and
we shall firmly and resolutely oppose to the very end any such despotic attempt.
"But although our government
seems insensible of the dangers of
the situation which they find created, we have every reason to believe that the country is aroused,
and that public opinion is greatly
disturbed throughout the Dominion.
"Many prominent supporters of
the Liberal party have refused to
accept the agreement with Washington. These men realize that the
government has abandoned lis steadfast policy of the past century, that
it is beset by international quarrels,
that it is no longer able to arouse
the enthusiasm of its followers in
the country or to unite its supporters in Parliament. The Conservative
party must remember that under
these new conditions it is confronted
with great obligations. It must prepare itself to resume power and it
must give evidence to the people
that it is ready to assume and to dls-|
charge with honor and with ability

be placed upon it.
One Great Principle
"Let me say that one great principle and policy should be ever in
mind. The wesi and the easl of
Canada must not be separated by
any unfortunate divergence of sentiment. Let us alter but one word
in a well known line and say, 'Oh!
I Is east, and west is west, Inn
■ r tlie twain shall part.' Let ns
not fail to recognize that henceforth
the wesl of Canada mas; have
and more influence and
voice in Parliament and In the ib-
inet than has heretofore been the
case. Strong as is the Conservative
pariy in ihe, House of Commons, ai
the preseni  time II  mus!  i
ii-ils other strong men from the
and require them al no distant
day to enter the fe le ral an na. T ei a
men knowing tho a ignly n ,. pi a-
tions aud needs of western Canada,
will give adequate expresslohn io its
views in Parliament and assure Its
full influence in future Conservative
governments,
Conservatives in Quebec
") will not touch upon conditions
in eastern Canada further than to
say this: From the province of
Quebec the Conservative party has
but a small representation in tlie
House of Commons. Remember,
however, that one hundred and thirty thousand votes were cast for the
Liberal-Conservative candidates in
that province in the last general
election. There is ample evidence
that the old traditions of the Liberal-Conservative party will reassert
its influence in that province. Our
party stands today for the same
principles with which the Conservatives of Quebec have been associated
even before this federation was constituted. The issue forced upon the
country by the mischievous trade
compact at Washington will arouse
again the enthusiasm and determination of Quebec Conservatives and assure once more adequate representation of our party from that province. We expect also in the next
Parliament of Canada a worthy representation of those who for    many
years past have been associated with
the Liberal party in this country,
but who cannot support the leaders
of that party in the issue which has
been so unfortunately forced upon
the country. Not only in the cities
of Canada, but in the rural districts
as well, there are thousands of Liberals in whose minds this agreement
means disaster for the country and
who will unite with the Conservatives and with all men of good will
in releasing this country at the next
general election from the despotism
which oppresses it today."

CORINTHIANS COMING
Coast football enthusiasts will
have an opportunity of looking over
one of the fastest teams In Ihe British Empire this summer, the Corinthians of Engzland having completed
all arrangements for their tour of
the Dominion and the United States.
The tourists will play in Vancouver
on August 29 and again on Labor

The Corinthians are England's

amateurs, they acknowledge few superiors, even among the top-notch-
ers in the game professionally. The
Corinthians toured Spain this spring
and were greeted with extraordinary
enthusiasm by the Spaniards. The

STEAMBOAT NOT NEW
Find Made at New Camp Indicate That
its Mineral Was Known
Years Ago.
Traces  of  Miner's  Outfit   Found   by
Prospectoi—May Be Many
Veins Did
A strange story lias recently been
brought to Vancouver by a prospector who is noi only naturally shy
but sensitive as to his reputation tor
veracity and sobriety. If true, and
there is no good reason for doubting, it would indicate that long ago,
perhaps during the first northward
rush to Cariboo, some Forty-niner
found gold in tlie Steamboat country
and stayed long enough to satisfy
himself as to the value of his find.
Whether he went south again for
supplies and encountered adversity,
whether the call of the north was
loo strong and he made a stake or
went "broke" on the long trail, or
whether his supplies gave out and
he perished in the then remote valleys, will probably never be known.
There is not even anything to show
whether the marks left were the
work of one, two or three or more
adventurers. The really interesting
problem is why he, or they, having
found gold so early on the northward route, abandoned the claim,
never returned, and so far as is
known never reported it. Among all
the myriad stories, not a few of
which have been proved true, of dying miners trying to tell their friends
of rich finds they had made and
left, there is nol one that occurs to
memory that seems in any way connected with this latest. Of course,
mining camps of early days, even in
law-abiding and law-enforcing British Columbia, saw many sudden
deaths'. Possibly the man or men
who first located a claim near
Steamboat Mountain had no opportunity to tell of it.
On a small tributary of Lightning
Creek, not many miles north of the
international line, the prospector
who is responsible for this story,
camped one night toward the end of
March. In the morning, while descending to the bank of the creek,
he saw almost buried, a piece of very
rusty metal. He moved it and found
that it was a pick. Not far away he
found the head of a small axe. Both
had obviously lain there for many
years. His curiosity thoroughly
. aroused, he explored the neighborhood. First he found, in the face of
the sloping hillside, an openiug, evidently not a natural cave, with the
sides crumbled away and the edges
partly moss-covered. Examination
disclosed the fact that here was at
least the beginning of a miner's tunnel. Its maker had not gone far,
about twenty feet, and much of that
has fallen in, but a few hours' work
easily cleared the detritus and exposed the face. There was a distinct
vein of ore about a foot aud a half
wide. Fragments were broken off
and carried to the light, when, without the aid of a glass, free gold was
clearly visible. The last discoverer
immediately prepared to stake a
claim to cover his find but in looking for convenient material he found
a stump, one side of which had been
cut. The smooth, weather-worn face
was carefully brushed, and then it
was clear that it was an old—a very
old—location post. The record had
not been penciled but laboriously
carved with a small knift. Very little was legible, bul the bottom line
had the date along and it was cut
deep. The lasl figure was uiimis-
takeably a 9 and the next either a
i or a ti.
A new claim has been slaked, and
recorded on ihe site (if this ancient
working, and it is likely to be heard
from during the ('(lining season.

from the mouth of Sulphur for the
full width of the valley.
The consideration is said to exceed half a million dollars.
The property has been controlled
for years by the Canadian Bank of
Commerce.
Gold Run was grouped and operated first by Chute & Wills. Later
Count Carboneau became involved
and still later the bank got control
on a mortgage for $650,000.
The foreclosure litigation lasted
long, but was recently settled.
Guggenheim obtains control of all
the ground, practically a solid block,
along Gold Run to claim Forty-four
above the mouth.
Harry Pinkiert controls Upper
Gold Run, comprising sixty claims.
Treadgold had been organizing
Dominion, Last Chance, Quartz and
other rich creeks in the Klondike
which the Guggenheims had not secured and said he intended to get
Gold Run, but in this battle of giants
the Guggenheims scooped up the
creek when Traedgold thought it
was his sure meat.
There are indications that the
Guggenheims intend to try to buy
other rich creeks.
Treadgold's rival company is just
completing an immense power plant
on the soutli fork of the Klondike
River and has an immense acreage,
rivaling that of the Guggenheims.
One or two other large companies
are also expected to break into this
field.
The first dredges of the year got
started on the Boyle concession last
week. The largest dredge in the
world was completed there last year
and is now in full operation.
WELL.KNOWN FIGURE
J.   E.   McAllister's   Leave-Taking   of
Province Removes One Very
Familiar to Boundary
The going of J. E. McAllister to
New York, removes a familiar figure
from the stirring life of the Boundary. Since he came to Greenwood
seven years ago he has worked an
expansive change in the affairs of
the British Columbia Copper Company, says the Greenwood Ledge.
Then the company only had two 300-
ton furnaces, the Mother Lode mine,
and many unpaid bills. Now the
smeller has a capacity of 2,000 tons
a day, and a dozen mines. Then the
matte was shipped to Tacoma. Now
a converter turns out blister copper
99 fine. Then the company could
not pay its bills in town. Now it
burns $2,000 worth of coke a day,
pays the Canadian Pacific Railway
$333 an hour for freight, pays dividends, owns two automobiles, and
money in the bank. Further comment is unnecessary for results speak
louder than taffy woven into words
and run through a printing press.
E. G. Warren, the new guiding
spirit of the local affairs of the
British Columbia Copper Company,
is a young and energetic man, with
an extensive knowledge of the practical workings of mines, smelters
and electricity. He is endowed with
rare executive ability, has a charming magnetic personality, and can
mix with the multitude upon any
and all occasions. Under his regime
we look for still greater prosperity
to cast its mantle over tlie upward
and onward march of the British
Columbia Copper Company.

YUKON  GOLD  DEAL
Guggenheims   Take   Over   Extensive
Holdings in the Klondike—
What Is Involved
One of the largest mining deals in
the history of tlie Yukon and of
Alaska has just been closed, whereby
Daniel Guggenheim takes over the
entire holdings of I lie National Trust
Company, of Toronto, in the Yukon
territory, says a Dawson despatch.
These Include the oldest and richest portion of Gold Run e^reek, which
has produced millions and is known
as one of the banner streams of the
Klondike camp.
The transfer also includes the Cru-
ger concession on Dominion Creek,
extending down stream    two    miles
A lead of high grade ore was
struck in the nig Tunnel to Phoenix. The ore is a little over 1,800
feet from the portnl of the tunnel
and 818 feet below the surface of
the Defiance claim. The lead just
struck Is highly mineralized with ore
that is worth mor ethan $100 a ton.
The ore resembles that of the Providence mine. This strike is the most
important mining event that has oc
curred in the district for years. It.
proves that the high-grade ores of
the Boundary go down, and will tend
to produce greater mining activity
in the mountains that surround
Greenwood.

Alpine Club Will on Summer Outing
This Year Define Eastern
Limit of B.C.
Mountain Climbers Will Spend Season in Yelowhead
Pass
It is the general impression among
every-day business people that the
Alpine clubs of the world represent
a too-arduous, too dangerous and too
exciting form of sport, and that their
members are suffering from an advanced stage of suicidal mania. England's Alpine club is the parent organization, having been in existence
for the past fifty years. Soon after
its initiation Ruskin wrote the following stricture:
"Even the Alps themselves which
your own poets used to love so reverently, you look upon as soap poles
in a bear garden, which you set yourselves to climb and slide down again
with shrieks of delight."
But later he retracted and made
the amend honorable by joining the
club and becoming one of its most
enthusiastic supporters.
The    Alpine    Club    of    Canada
though  but five years old,  believes
that there are other ways to usefulness than  merely providing    moun
tain  climbing  for  its  members.    It
was announced at the club'- fifth an
niversary  celebrations  held  at.    Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver
and  New   York  that  an  expedition
would this summer be conducted to
Yellowhead Pass, Mount Robson and
the Jasper Park region, for the pur
pose of mapping that Alpine district
and presenting it to the    world    at
large through the   medium   of   the
Alpine  Club.     This  seems  to  be  a
highly  practical form of usefulness
The expedition will be in charge of
the director of the club, A. 0. Wheel
er, who is a specialist in    mapping
mountain areas by means of photo
grahps, and  who has also    mapped
the Rockies and the Selkirks along
the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway for the Dominionu Government
The expedition is a strictly Alpine
Club one. The assistant topographer will be Rev. Geo. Kinney, the
conqueror of Mount Robson; the
club's official photographer, Byron
Harmann, of Banff, and its Austrian
guide, Conrad Kain, will .also be attached. The outfitting and transport
of the party will be in charge of Don
aid Phillips, of Edmonton, who
shared with Kinney the tirumph of
the first ascent of Mount Robson
Also proper persons to deal with the
geology, botany and zoology of the
area surveyed will be attached to
the expedition.
One object of the expedition is to
ascertain the possibilities for the an
nual camp of die Alpine Club in the
vicinity of Mount Robson ih ial2.
It is expected that by then all-rail
communication will be established
with the pass. Of recent years a
number of explorers have visited it,
all of whom have spoken in glowing
terms of its Alpine splendors. Among
these are Dr. A. P. Coleman, president of the club, Rev. G. B. Kinney
and Dr. N. Collie, A. L. Munim and
L. S. Amery, of the English Alpine
Club. Messrs. Mumni and Collie
will visit the region this year for
the third time in succession. If the
photographs brought back by these
gentlemen are to be believed—and
photographs do not lie—there is a
region of peaks, passes, snowfields,
icefalls and glacial rivers that will
equal, If not surpass, any region contiguous to the line of the Canadian
Pacific Railway.
Canada is indeed singularly
blessed to posses two transcontinental railroads that run through such
wholly unsurpassed Alpine scenic
grandeur, The character of the
mountain scenery is totally distinct
along each line so that visiting tourists will do well to come aud go by
different routes. No two mountain
ranges of the world are similar in
characteristics, aud the same is true
of their component parts.
The director of the Alpine Club
has been commissioned by Hon. w.
R. Ross, the minister of lauds for
British Columbia, lo establish and
mark the boundary between the
provinces of Britisii Columbia and
Alberta aud ine Dominion Government is colaboratiug with the Alpine
Club aud rendering tangible support.
It speaks well for the progressive-
ness and utility ot the club that it is
ahead of tiie times and will be the
first to map the region systematically, and lo bring Its Bcenic features to
note in a form thai can be readily
grasped by the traveling public. The
club's policy from the beginning has
been a progressive one. It has established connections in many parts
of the world and has done much to
bring to general notice, not only the
Canadian mountain ranges, but Canada itself. No other Alpine Club Is
operated o the same plan, and that
such plan has met with approval in
high quarters is proved by the fact
that mountaineers and explorers of
world-wide fame have become life
members of the Canadian club.
The annual camp for this year will
be held in the main range of the
Rockies at Sherbrooke Lake, along
the line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. It has been whispered that
tne club has only been awaiting railway facilities to hold a camp in the
Windermere district, not far from
Earl Grey's camp at Toby creek.
The Windermere district presents
another interesting and beautiful region of totally different characteristics. It is two hundred miles from
Yellowhead Pass as the crow files,
and between an ocean of peaks,
many of which have not yet been
even seen. The poslbllities for the
Alpine Club are great. It ought to
be supported, not only by the several governments of Canada, but by
all public spirited Canadians.

Question of Records in Railway Belt

STATUTORY HOLIDAYS
King's Birthday Will be Observed on
Juno 3, tlie Actual Date
of H.s Birth
June 3, the birthday of His Majesty, King George, and June 22,
Coronation Day, will be proclaimed
as statutory or legal holidays
throughout Canada. Some time ago
His Majesty instructed, through the
Colonial off'ce, th«t he would prefer
to have his birthday celebrated on
the actual anniversary of his birth,
instead of adhering to the precedent
set by the late sovereign, King Edward, whose birthday was officially
celebrated on Victoria Day, Instead
of on November 9. Good Friday,
Easter Monday, Victoria Day and
Dominion Day are now statutory
holidays, and with June 3 added as a
fixed holiday from now on, and
Coronation Day made an extra holiday this year, the Dominion will be
served with public holidays during
the spring and early summer.
"Do you mean to say that you
married for money?"
"In a way I did. I got married
because I couldn't afford to stay
engaged  any  longer."
That millions of dollars of British
capital will be diverted to British
Columbia this year Is the opinion expressed by Mr. C. G. Gowan, a rancher and well-known big game hunter
of Kamloops. Mr. Cowan usually
spends the winter months in the
British Isles, and has recently returned from an Important mission
for a syndicate of British noblemen,
whom he has represented in Canada
for some years. He has already secured for them large tracts of land
in the vicinity of Fort George and
Fraser Lake on the route of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, and will leave
short! yto investigate other townsite
speculations  along  the  line  of  the
same railway west of Edmonton. As
he has already scoured the entire
route, on hunting trips, the district
is quite familiar to him.
Mr. Cowan owns landed estates in
Ireland and has hunted big game in
Alaska and nearly every part of British Columbia. He is of opinion that
the movement of British capital to
this province at the present is being
accelerated by the financial legislation of Hon. Lloyd-George. He intimates that the land he has secured
already in this country for British
capitalists may be colonized In future with specially selected British
farmers.

FISHERY PATROL
Sebastian   and   Geiinanin   Complete
Charter to the Dominion Government for Work
The steam whalers Sebastian and
Germania have returned to Victoria
from the west coast after having
been engaged for some weeks under
charter to the Dominion government
as fishery protection cruisers, and
their work as government vessels
Willi end with the close of this
month. The two whalers have patrolled the fishing grounds, but have
not sighted any poachers inside the
limits, the fleet which one time
made frequent excursions inside the
three-mile limit having been kept
more than the prescribed three miles
from shore since the Edrie was captured.
The Germania was yesterday sent
to Rosedale reef off Race Rocks
where a buoy was reported adrift to
pick up the derelict aid to navigation. This menace was named after
the British ship Rosedale which
came to grief there when on the way
to Victoria in     1862.    After    being
floated the Rosedale was beached at
Ross bay to avoid sinking and several vessels were engaged in her relief, H. M. S. Grappler, and the
steamers Thames and Otter, brig
Sheet Anchor and two schooners.
There was a law suit for salvage and
the Otter was awarded  $2,500.
COKE FROM EAST
The Greenwood Smelter has
enough of coke on the ground and
in the bins to run the furnaces until
June. Last week 1,000 tons arrived
from the east, and 4,000 tons more
are in transit. In addition, there
are 1,000 tons of western coke on
wheels for this smelter, between
Grenewood and Coleman. The eastern coke comes in fine racked cars
of 40 tons capacity. The Pennsylvania coke is much superior to that
of Coleman, and comes across the
continent with hardly any loss of
weight, while a car of Coleman coke
will frequently lose three or four
tons,, owing to the fine particles being jarred loose by the railway journey from the Pass to Greenwood.
