CATCHING ROBBERS
Story of the Shadowing of HcNamara
Charged With Robbing Bank at
New Westminster.
Attempt to Puss Off Hills Proves (lie
Downfall of the (Jang Which
Commit led Hit' Crime
The way in which McNamara,
charged with being connected with
the New Westminster bank robbery,
was captured by the police in New
York is fully told in the Times of
that city..
Central Office detectives, working
with the Pinkertou Detective Agency,
arrested John McNamara, alia John
McNab, alias John Morgan, best
known throughout his criminal career as "Australian Mack," charging him with robbing the branch
bank of the Bank of Montreal at
New Westminster, B. C, on September 15 last, when over $375,000 in
gold and negotiable currency was
stolen, one of the largest single hauls
ever made by burglars in North
America.
McNamara's arrest, according to
Second Deputy Police Commissioner
Dougherty, will result in the recovery of nearly all of the stolen money, very little of which is believed
to have found its way into circulation. He described McNamara as the
"Commissioner of Crooks." He said
he was one of the "highest class'
crooks known to the police. The
prisoner Is of powerful build and
weighs over 250 pounds. He is 49
years old, but looks no older than
3fi, He always dresses well and
looks 'ike a prosperous business
man.
There are believed to have been
five men in the gang. A clerk slept
In the bank every night, but was
absent on this night for the first
time in bis life. He had worked over
the books until after midnight on
September 14. The burglars entered
with pass keys, and a Chinese watchman inside was bound and gagged
and tied to a post in the cellar. A
hole was bored through a brick wall
leading to the safe, and after plugging all holes with the bed clothes
from the clerk's bed an electric wire
was used to touch off a charge of
nitro-glycerine by means of the detonation process, which only the
"high class' burglars are supposed
to know anything about. The explosion completely destroyed the
safe, and yet was not heard by a
policeman who stood a few yards
away from the front of the bank.
The burglars took their loot away
in a stolen automobile and a stolen
launch. It was so heavy that a
a pack of bills containing $5,000
was dropped on the street. This was
later found in the possession of a
tramp, who was trying to spend it
in the Chinese quarter in Vancouver. Another $24,000 in bills was
hidden under a boardwalk and found
a lew months later. With the exception of about $10,000 in gold and
silver the rest of the money, over
$250,000, was in negotiable bills of
from $5 to $100 denominations. The
number of every bill was known, and
notices were sent to every bank In
the world to be on the lookout for
their presentation.
A few days ago Police Commissioner Waldo received a telegram
from Chief of Police Bradshaw of
New Westminster that negotiations
were under way to exchange a large
part of the stolen Canadian bills for
United States money In Now York
City. It was not supposed for a
moment, however, that. "Australian
Mack" was himself in the city. Only
last Friday, in fact, a supposed
member of the gang was arrested
in Lob Angeles, and it was assumed
that "Mack" was somewhere in the
west.
Two months ago a man named
George Hendrix accepted $1,000 in
$5 bills in Buffalo and presented
them to his bank for deposit. They
were refused, and Hendrix received
$100 as the promised 10 per cent
reward for any portion of the stolen
bills which would be returned. He
Bald that he had accepted the money
In a bet in a gambling house, and
gave a description of the man who
gave them. This description, according to the Plnltertons, was that of
McNamara.
Word came from Vancouver that
a man of that description had been
seen there about the time the burglary was committed. The police
here, as well as the Plnkertons, were
on the lookout for McNamara since
that time.
Since New Year's Eve six men suspected of being engaged In negotiations for exchanging the stolen money have been shadowed. Commissioner Dougherty learned that these
men reported to McNamara, who
kept in the background. He lived
at Fort Lee, and seldom came to
Broadway. The arrest was delayed,
It was said at the Pinkerton office,
in order to make the arrest of two
others suspected In the rank robbery.
Yesterday afternoon Detectives
Reilly and Woolridge followed McNamara from the Fort Lee Ferry to
Amsterdam Avenue and 133d Street.
He met another man there, apparently by appointment. The man did nol
appear anxious to talk to McNamara,
however, and after a few moments of
conversation the detectives approached McNamara and laid their hands
on his shoulder, one on either side.
"We want you," they said.
"What for?" asked McNamara,
backing away and showing signs of
resistance.
Immediately the detectives clapped their hands on their prisoners'
pockjts, having received information
that he would be heavily armed. He
had no weapon on his person, however.
"Show your warrant," shouted
McNamara.
The detectives had a warrant
signed by Magistrate McAdoo, and
McNamara then consented to go with
them  to  police  headquarters.
"What do you want with me, anyhow?" the prisoner said to Commissioner Doughertyin the latter's office about an hour later.
"You are wanted for burglary in
New Westminster," replied the commissioner.
"Oh, is that all," said McNamara,
smiling. "I thought it was for some
more serious charge."
He had in his possession $1,100
in American money, none of which,
it was admitted, was a part of the
stolen money. The prisoner admitted, according to the commissioner,
that he had lived In the Strand Hotel
in Vancouver some time last year.
"This prisoner," said Mr. Dougherty, "is the one we have been looking for. He used to be the proprietor of the Turtle, situated at the
entrance of Golden Gate Park, in
San Francisco; also of the Log Cabin
Cafe, two noted resorts. He has been
arrested a number of times in various parts of the United States, and
his number in our gallery is 5,414.
"On May 7, 1897, he was arrested
in this city on the charge of burglary. On September 1(4, 1S99, he
was arrested in Boston, charged with
being a pickpocket and burglar. On
July 7, 1900, he was arrested in
Cleveland. On December 2, 1900,
he was arrested in Louisville while
acting suspiciously in the Insurance
Bank, with Herman Diehm and
George Carson, bank sneak thieves.
In    McNamara's    possession     were

out.
These lands will be tapped by the
Columbia & Western Railway, the

Issue.
Nearly a  Million  Men Are Affected
by the Situation Which Has
Been Produced
London, Jan. 18.—The vote taken
by the coal miners shows a large majority In favor of the strike, and a
notice to quit work March 1 will be
issued. The vole stood four to one
in favor of a strike. About 900,000
men aie affected.
Willi SO per cent of the men voting for a walkout on March 1 unless
their demands for a minimum wage
scale are granted by the Cardiff colliery operators, the British government is alarmed over the prospect.
Should no agreement be reached
when the miners meet the operators
here on January 23 and the men
carry out their threat to strike, the
English navy would be practically
helpless.
At present the supply of coal on
hand will hardly last England a
month and a coal famine is certain
to follow a strike. The operators
are unable to fill commercial orders,
declaring that the present supply is
barely sufficient to meet the demands  of the navy.

A   WISE  INSPECTORATE
Greater   Revenue   From   Succession
Duties Marks Change of
Policy
There is at present being collected
a much greater revenue from estates
than in the past, thanks to the government in having appointed an inspector of trust companies. Upton
Runnalls, In addition to his other
work, looks after the collection of
succession duties, and the public ac-
iounts just published show the value
of his office to the province in this
respect. The revenue from succession duties In 1909 was $8,791.41,
in 1910 $21,169.91, and for the year
just closed $(14,057.30. There is DOW
being collected a much larger revenue due the province from large
estates of which it was formerly derived through (lie under-estinialimi
of estates values. This is due to the
principle Introduced by Mr. Runnalls, who, when anything oilier than
a reasonably true value is put In, tins
the matter referred to an. Independent and competent board of valuators. The inspectorate has now been

PANAMA   CANAL  TOLLS
Sir William Mackenzie, in an interview in London regarding the rumored proposal of the United States
to grant preference to American vessels at the Panama Canal when it
is opened, said he was afraid Canadians had not looked far enough
ahead. He was sure they would
keenly resent any such preference on
behalf of the Americans, for they
had naturally been expecting further
substantial development in their far
eastern trade when the canal was
ready to receive shipping. Canadians, he said, desired perfect freedom of navigation to and from Pacific ports of the Dominion.
CONSTAHLE'S   RISK
Conveys       Prisoner      "In       Ilond"
Through Foreign Territory
A man of resource and originality
is Chief Constable Docksteader of
the provincial police, whose district
is in the Boundary, and who recently accomplished the arrest of the
prisoner Alexander, who is now appearing in a Spokane court on proceedings for extradition to British
Columbia to face trial for the stealing of $475 from Gorman West.
Alexander was arrested "across the
line" and It was necessary to deliver
him at Spokane as expeditiously as
possible. The chief constable had
the aldernative of an eighty mile
stage trip of considerable dlffieulty
and offering many opportunities for
the prisoners' escape, or taking a
train to Spokane direct—the line,
however, leading through a neck of
Canadian territory. upon which
Alexander might take it into li is
head to defeat justice by declaring
himself no longer under the jurisdiction of the officers having him In
charge. Mr. Docksteader solved the
problem. He had the American officer, the prisoner and himself sealed
up in a chartered freight car, and
thus they went through "foreign territory" in bond—and the situation
was saved!

The Diamond Drill on the Ground Today
Limited Amount of Stock at 25 Cents—5 Cents Cash
Read this offer over carefully. Be
sure that it is right, then don't wait.
The owners talte a chance with you.
They put up the coal lands and you
put up the money to prove the coal,
one-half of the stock for you, and
one-half for them. This is one of
the fairest and best offers ever made
to the public under ironclad conditions. A business proposition from
start to finish, there Is nothing on
the market like it. Leases and Crown
grants to over 3.500 acres of the best
coal lands on Queen Charlotte Islands
are being conveyed free from all encumbrances to the Northern Anthracite Collieries, Ltd., capital stock
1,600,000 shares, par value of $1.00
each; one-half of this stock for the
treasury and one-half for the owners
of the land. The first 100,000 of
these shares of par value of $1.00
each, non-assessable and fully paid
up, are to be sold at 15c, 5c with
application, 5c in 30 days and 5c in
60 days. The proceeds from this
block of stock will be used proving
these coal lands with a Diamond
Drill under special contract, and In
charge of competent management. It
is expected that the proceeds from
this first block of stock will be sufficient to put down at least three or
more boreholes of 1,000 feet each.
This will undoubtedly cut one or two
seams of splendid coal—then see
your stock jump. Satisfactory tenders have been accepted and a contract let to the Diamond Drill Contracting Company of Spokane, Wash.,
for the boring and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe side, a further
block of 100,000 shares of treasury
stock will be offered at 25c per share,
5c on application and 5c per month
until paid, as soon as the first block
has all been subscribed.
Now, use your own judgment, but
consider carefully what your chances
are of making $85.00 on an investment of $15.00 in six months, or
$1,000 on an investment of $150.00,
for as sure as the sun rises and sets
this stock will go to $1.00 at least as
soon as the drill cuts through the
seams of splendid coal that are surely
there, according to all experts' reports of the highest obtainable authority, who have reported on the Queen
Charlotte Islands coal measures as
follows: T. R. Marshall, P.C.S., 1902;
Dr.     George     M.     Dawson,     D. S.,
A.R.A.R.S.M., F.G.S., 1STS; II. E.
Parrish, John J. Langdale, 1867;
James Deans, 1872; James Parkinson, 1888"; R. W. Ellis, 1906; T. B.
Cory, of the State of Washington,
U. S. A., and our own expert, C. F. J.
Galloway, B.Sc, who is among the
best authorities In B. C.
These reports cover first the Wilson-Robinson coal fields, three miles
north of this coal land; second, the
Old Cowgate coal fields, almost adjoining on the west; third, the Alfred
Bay coal fields on the south; and
fourth, the company's own coal, all
of which are positive evidence that
this is one of the best coal fields on
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Situate on Graham Island, Bearskin Bay,
one of the best harbors in the north,
at the gateway of transportation to
all points of the world, and at the
very doors of Queen Charlotte City;
in fact, a portion of this coal underlies the townsite. No railroads to
build—just lead the coal from the
mines to the boats. These are facts
that defy "contradiction, and within
five days the Diamond Drill will be
on the ground and in operation. This
is the only way anyone can tell how
many millions of tons of coal  there
is in the property.
All applications will be filed in
order received, and only 100,000 will
be sold at 16c.
How many times in your life have
you had a chance like this? A square
deal for once at least in a stock
proposition, with almost a certainty
of the stock being worth $1.00 before
you have made your third payment
at 15c. Do not hesitate. Send in
your application  today.
For further information call or
write to the head office of the company, 506 Pacific Building, where the
report of C. F.J. Galloway, B.S.C.,
on this coal land can be seen. His
report is all that could be asked,
practically saying that the coal is
there beyond a doubt, with sufficient
evidence in sight to warrant drilling
and development work at once.
Paragraph From Mr. Galloways
Report
"The easiest seam to prove will be
the Cowgitz, as its horizon is known.
I should, therefore, recommend you
to put down a borehole near the eastern end of your easternmost section.
At the point marked C on the map
the position of this seam should be
passed through at a depth of about
500 feet, the Camp Anthracite scam
being probably passed through In the
same hole, if it occurs at all in this
locality."
All promoters' stock is to be pooled
until $200,000 has been raised for
the purpose of developing the mine.
In conclusion, you will have the
satisfaction of knowing that your
money is all goinng into proving the
coal is there, not into the promoters'
pockets nor to pay for a dead horse
of any kind, as the coal leases and
titles are all paid for and clear of
all encumbrances and will always be
a valuable asset. Fill out the application form for any number of
shares you want and address your
application to H. F. McRae & Co.,
Second Avenue, Prince Rupert, who
are the authorized agents to receive
applications and receipt for same.
All cheques or money orders should
be made out to them. You are requested to make any enquiries not
answered in this advertisement,
which will receive a prompt answer.

PUBLIC OWNERSHIP
New York Times Gives  its Views on
Subject Following Action of
British Government.
It  Is  Pointed  Out  That  in  Taking
Over Telephone System Injustice
.■May He Done Taxpayers
The New York Times, dealing with
the course of the British governnienl
in taking over the telephone system
of the United Kingdom, puis up an
argument against the system of public ownership which Is Interesting
in this city at the present time. The
Times   says:
The United Spates has developed
an unrivalled telephone service bj
a'lowing generous profits lo a pri
vate company. On New Year's Day
England began the experiment of developing its telephone system by government, that is to say by tax money.
It cannot be said that the start is
fair ,1'or the British government on
Monday took over an inferior and
deteriorating service under a contract of long standing. Ever since
tlie contract was .nail.! the private
company lias barely maintained the
plant which was to become the property of its successor, and the consequence was that London has not
been well served. In fact, the telephone service of England lias been
so bad that the telegraph lines were
used almost necessarily, and at a
rate of toll which has run up a teli
graph deficit nearly enough to pay a
6 per cent dividend on our Western
Union Telegraph Company's stock.
To this loss it will now be necessary
to add a prospective similar loss to
the telephones, with an allowance for
the betterment of the plant on a national scale. The German budget
for telephone appropriation has
ranged from twenty-five million
marks to almost double that in recent years, and the allowance is Inadequate, although all that it was
possible to .nclude i" the budget
with its frequent debits and bond
issues  to balance.
The significance of these comparisons between public and private telephones is in the fact thai the future
prosperity of both telegraphs and
telephones lives in Intens've development, that Is In developing the
patronage of the groat public by servile both cheap and excellent. Hon'
this problem is being attacked with
great intelligence and ability by private capital, at its sole risk and in
the hope of profit. The cable service of the world has been revolutionized by the same management's
initiative, supported by British cp-
opei at Ion, and Intel continental communication has been cheapened marvellously in the same manner that
the " British telephone service must
be developed. London, for example,
has about one-quartei of the telephone service it ought to have according to New York practice, or
one-half in comparison with Berlin.
Government services are never developed out of profits. There Is no
reason why they should be, when ii
is so easy to lay a  lax.    The pay
ment of the tax is another matter,
and it will be interesting to remark
just where the reluctance to endure
taxes and the rebellion against bad
telephone service will balance.
Since 1900, that is to say since
the beginning of England's socialist
excursion, consols have fallen say
fifteen points, corresponding to a
loss of credit of half a billion dollars. Even in England it is beginning to lie asked where Ibis will
end. It will end all the sooner if
this telephone experiment takes the
course of the telegraph experiment.
Cheap telegraphy was demanded by
parliament on behalf of constituents,
and the sixpenny rate was established, with a deficit as noted. As a
commercial enterprise the British
telegraphs are not stable. The telephones start with large capital necessities, anil wiib the prospeel that
Hie demand for accommodations will
repeal  the telegraph experience.
However, the British postmastei
general makes as good ;i start as possible by having sent over his experts
to sttldy the American service, which

"It is the most interesting place
in the world for the student of the
Bible," the professor said. "I have
been there three times already, and
I never will tire of going. There are
in the monasteries there thousands
of Greek manuscripts, and hundreds
of them are connected with the New
Testament. Hundred of students
have studied these manuscripts very
carefully, but there are other manuscripts that have not yet been read
carefully. It may be that great discoveries, valuable to the Bible scientists will emanate yet from this great

LAND POLICY
The opposition to Hie Meliride
government here, in common with
tne opposition elsewhere, is attempting lo stir up a feeling against the
government on the question of its
land policy in the province. For a
long time opponents of the government of B. C. have made this a
ground for opposition when nothing
else can be found against which to
aim attacks upon the McBrlde administration, but their attacks have
been  unavailing.
No one pretends that, the policy
with respent to land in British Columbia is perfect. It is the growth
of a system which dates back many
years, when land was of very small
value in this province and when mineral claims held first place in the
thoughts of the legislators as well
as the other residents of the province.
To change a system of land holding is not an easy matter. The Mc-
Bride government had to take things
up as they found them and make the
best of them. There is constantly
a loi of talk against abuses that may
have crept in, but the government
cannot repudiate ail' that has been
done in the past and begin anew.
TItales of various kinds already in existence and gained through the Acts
in force when obtained have to he
respected. Tlie provincial government, through its land department,
is endeavoring to work changes thai
will best serve the interests of the
province without upsetting what has
a'ready been done. The settlers in
i.i i ish Columbia are well looked
after in many ways. They are practically exempt in the earlier years
from taxation and have facilities provided  them.
It is impossible that hardships
shall not arise in some instances
but the McBrlde government is taking care to give every settler the
fullest protection and all the advantages   possible.
A recent bulletin Issued by the
Geological Survey Department, Ottawa, contains tlie following reference to coal deposits of Ground Hog
.Mountain at the head of the Skeena
River:
Considerable interest, lias been
manifested dining the past season in
the Ground Hog coal basin, which
lies at the head of the Skeena River. Probably 600 claims have been
staked and several groups of capitalists are interested in the field.
G. S. Mallock, who spent the summer
investigating the southern end of the
basin on behalf of the Geological
Survey, furnishes the following notes
on this new coalfield:
The (oal measures so far as known
have a north westward extent of at
least, seventy miles, and a width at
the southern end of thirty miles.
The sediments have a thickness of
upwards of 3,000 feet, but contain
coal in commercial quantities near
the top and bottom only, though
there are a few thin seams In the
intermediate beds, the upper horizon contains seven seams with thickness varying from two to six feet
and so far as is known, is limited to
an area of twenty square miles. The
lower horizon contains at least three
seams four to six feet thick and
extends over most of the area occupied by tlie coal measures. The coal
is antiracilo In chiirai ter, Some of
the seams are high in ash, but from
one of them some excellent analyses
have  been  obtained.
Tl e basin is fau'ted considerably
and there are numerous local flexures associated with the faults. The
development of a coalfield of this
character near tlie Pacific Coast
would be of great importance to
■ British Columbia. It lies about
ninety miles along a possible route
I for a railway, and about one hundred
and fifty miles from llazelton on the
Grand   Trunk   Pacific.

\ LAND WITHOUT WOMEN
In Greece There Is a Womanless Republic Which  Hits 'ten Thousand Malf Residents
There is a womanless republic on
a peninsula south of Macedonia, In
Greece, where ten thousand men
live, studying ami praying constantly, and where policemen guard the
coast to keep out women pilgrims
and.other persons who would make
undesirable guests. Prof, Caspar
Rene Gregory, theologian of Biblical
manuscripts, has described this
unique district.
"The place is Mount Mhos, classic peninsula of Akte, tlie easternmost of three little peninsulas below
M edonia," Professor Gregory explained, "li is called the Mount of
the Twenty Monasteries and was
ised In .iin lenl times as a signalling
Btatlon tn Asia Minor. Ii is a vast
republic.     There  arc   ten   thousand
monks there, who g in themsolves
without Interference from Turkey or
any other country, There are, however, no governmenl buildings, no
president or other office holders.
i lie only police force is composed of men who patrol Hie coasl
to keep out. women and men who
have no penult to enter I his most
exclusive of countries. Only those
who have a letter of permission from
the Greek Patriarch in Constantinople are allowed lo enter the holy
]ilace. The holder of this letter must
present it to Karges, the village capital of the peninsula."
Some reports have it thai this
republic was formed in the ninth
century. It. is said that Ihe foot of
a woman has never touched the soil
of the place for centuries. All the
monks represent the Greek Catholic
Church. They work the soil, but live
chiefly from contributions from pilgrims.     Probably  the  greatest  col-
Voii can't convince Ihe glazier that
the people who live in glass houses
shouldii i  throw  stones.
There were forty-eight accidents
in which 392 lives were lost, out of
314,768,885 passengers carried during the year ended June 30, on steam
vessels required by law to report the
number of passengers to the supervising Inspector general of the steamboat inspection service, Department
of Commerce and Labor. , Of the
whole number lost, 113 were from
accidents incident to the perils of
navigation, and forty-eight were
from suicide and other couses beyond the power of the service to
avert, leaving 231 which can be
charged fairly to accident, collision
or foundering. This means that
802(981 passengers were carried for
j each life lost, whether of passengers
or crew, and from all causes.
classified according to causes, the
accidents and deaths arc distributed
as follows: Fire, 7 accidents, 10
deaths; collisions, 19 accidents, 4(1
deaths; explosions or accidental es-
of Bteani, 11 accidents, 12
;deaths; snags, wrecks and sinking.
II accidents, 114 dea'hs; .accidental
drowning 111;   miscellaneous, 09.
The 'oss of life was due largely
to  the  following disasters:    .
():: September :i, 1910, the steamship Pere Marquette No. IS, from
l.udinglon, Mich., bound for Milwaukee, Wis., with twenty-nine loaded cars, sank from some unknown
cause. Twenty-seven lives.were lost,
many being killed by the sea and
floating wreckage.
On October 10, 1910, the steamship Arkadia sailed from New Orleans, La., for San Juan, P. R., carrying four passengers and thirty-
three crew. The Arkadia never was
heard from again and is supposed to
have foundered and all on board lost
during Ihe hurricane of October 14,
1910.
On January 10, 1911, the coal-
laden barges Trevorton, Corbin and

BASEBALL  LEAGUE
Rejoice all you fans, you followers
of the baseball. At last Prince Rupert will again have an indoor baseball league
Last evening a large and enthusiastic crowd of fans assembled in the
police station to discuss baseball
matters. Representatives from four
teams were present who had already
secured picked teams. The teams
now in the field are the Royals,
Crescents, Quill Drivers, and Morrison's. Before the end of the week
at least five more teams are expected to be in the league.
The four teams already formed
have as their captains and managers
the following: Quill Drivers, Evans
and Vance; Crescents, Devitt( captain); Royal Blues, Ramsay and
Corley; Morrison's, Morrison (cap-
fain and manager).
Nelson Dunn was appointed to act
as umpire..
The other teams arc expected to be
formed at. once. Next Thursday
evening another meeting will be held
at the police station, at which time
a schedule will be made out. The
series will start the first week in
February.
MARATHON  RECORDS
According to some sporting notes
from Tokio, Japan, the athletic authorities there have already started
with their Iryouts for the Olympic
games. Like the other nations, they
are not going to wait until the last
minute to see the class of material
they have got, but are taking time
by the forelock. The first event to
be tried by the Japs was the Marathon, and It is said that a string of
nearly 400 went over the full classic
distance of 26 miles 385 yards. In
the account giving the description of
the race the name of the winner is
carefully omitted, but that makes no
difference anyway, for even if it
were given only a small percentage
of the world would know how to get
their tongues around the proper pro-
nounciation. What the account did
not fail to mention was that the
winner beat the record by eleven
minutes. As there is a wide range
and classification of Marathan records it is Impossible to know which
one the Jap flier bowled over.
Since the Olympic revival there
have been five big Marathons, that
those in connection with the Olympic games. The best time made so
far is 2.51:23 3-6, and this was made
on the original course from the village of Marathon to the stadium at.
Athens in 1906. The runner was
Sherring of Canada, and had not the
day been so warm and the roads so
fearfully dusty he would surely have
run much faster. For the Jap to
run 11 minutes faster than Slier-
ring's mark is a highly meritorious
feat, and If he should repeat it at
Stockholm he would need some
watching.
On the books the fastest time for
the classic, distance by an amateur
is 2.36:26 1-5, by Matt Maloney on
December 26, 1908, and It is noteworthy as being the world's best
mark.
OPENING FOOTBALL
The first round of the British
Football Association Cup series was
played last Saturday, attracting the
usual big crowds and providing customary surprises. Of these the most
outstanding feature was the defeat
of the league champions, Newcastle
United, by Derby County, a second
division eleven, by the big margin of
three goals to nil. Of the first division teams which clashed, West
Bromwich Albion beat Tottenham
Hotspur, while Middlebrouogh and
Sheffield Wednesday drew. Manchester City beat Preston North End and
Bollon Wanderers bent Woolwich
Arsenal. Sheffield United wore
beaten by Chelsea, and Hie cup hollies. Bradford City, could only draw
Willi Queens Park Rangers, a southern league team. Drawn results will

BIDDING  FOR  PLAYERS
Bidding has commenced for lacrosse players in Canada, with Con
Jones trying to outbid the Big Four
Union magnates, and eastern men
are doing their best to land the
best talent in the game. Not satisfied with securing Fitzgerald, Spring
and Len Turnbull from the British
Columbia Lacrosse League, Torontos
are now after Gibbons, a Vancouver
goaltender, and expects to land him
shortly. Another Vancouver home
player is also said to be coming east.
Torontos offered Cory Hess $1,200,
while Fitzgerald is said to have been
offered $1,500. With Con Jones
aroused, when he finds that the eastern clubs are getting after him in
earnest, there is no telling how high
he will go.
At the Big Four meeting in Toronto on January 25 it is probable
that the learn limit will be raised to
twenty men. This means that the
clubs will actually carry that number
and will prevent teams from reserving players of ability whom they cannot use.
TEACHERS'   RESOLUTIONS
Conclusion  Readied nt Annual  convention Held in New Westminster
At the recent convention of the
Coast Teachers of the Province held
In New Westminster the following
resolutions were adopted:
That all free text books he given
outright to all the pupils.
That the paper on nature study
contain an optional question In manual training and one in domestic
science.
That the boards be empowered to
ii.ake more liberal provision tor
teachers who are unable to report for
duty on account of illness.
That the entrance examination in
literature be (a) extensive as regards "The Lady of the Lake" or
other long poems to be from time
to time prescribed; and (b) intensive as to a limited number of
selections from the Fourth Reader;
and (c) that: the memory selections
be limited and indefinitely prescribed.
That Immediate steps be taken for
tlie appointment of an advisory council of education as this has received
the expressed approval of the minister of education, said council to
have thereon representatives from
the various branches of public instruction.
That the texts now prescribed in
our schools in Canadian History, Hygiene, Geography, are ill adapated
for class room use and that Immediate   steps   be   taken   to   prescribe
more suitable texts in these subjects.
That the High School entrance be
further curtailed by the omission of
partial payments, present worth and
true discount.
That history and geography be restored to the High School curriculum
and the course in history to include
a general sketch of ancient, medieval
and modern history British and Canadian constitutional questions to receive  special  attention.
That pupils on entrance examinations be given distinguishing numbers, as is done in the High School
examinations. These numbers to be
used on their papers instead of
names and names of schools.
A high forehead denotes intellect,
but the average woman prefers a
low neck.

has just received a few dozen suits

HALIBUT   SEASON
J. II. HOBSON  DEAD
word for tie Yiar 1911 Kcde by the
Various Fishing Vessels Operating
in the North.
Ketchikan  Plant to  lie Enlarged by
the New English  Pish
Company
To the steamer Kingfisher and
Flamingo, fishing out of Vancouver,
fell the honor of securing the most
halibut lor the year lull, according
io a return compiled by the New
England Fisli Company of ancouver,
The Kingfisher was head boat witli
the Flamingo second, and they secured better catches than any of tlie
vessels fishing from Seattle or Ta-
coma.
The year of 1911 resulted in approximately 17,000,000 pounds of
fresh and frozen fish being taken,
but this is smaller than the preceding year. The closing months of last
year were notable for extremely bad
weather and small catches, and despite the fact that fishermen worked
harder and went farther north in
their efforts to secure halibut, Ihe
catches tell away to an alarming extent.
During last year the New England
Fish Company added one vessel to
its fleet, the Prospector, fishing
from Seattle, and the company's Canadian branch, the Canadian Fishing
Company Limited, completed the
largest fish freezing and fish storage
plant on the continent, without exception. Within a few days a start
will be made on the construction of
a smoke plant attached to the freezing plant at the Terminal  City.
The catch during the last three
months has been the poorest on record, and it has been decided to tie
up the Kingfisntsi and New England
for the winter until March. This is
the first time that any of the boats
have been obliged to lay up owing
to the bad weather and small takes.
It is intended to fish the Prospector
and the Manhattan out of Ketchikan
and ship the catches to Vancouver
and Seattle, and operate the Flamingo and Celestial Empire out of
Vancouver. The Flamingo is now at
Esquimau, completing repairs, and
will probably proceed to Vancouver.
A. L. Hager, manager of the company, intends to go east in two weeks
to complete arrangements for the improvements contemplated this year,
which includes an increase in the
fleet, and to increase the size of the
Ketchikan plant to four times its
present extent.

mining men in the province. He had
been in failing, health for some time,
and only recently ret::: tied from California, where he had been on a trip
for liis health. He was 07 years of
age, and a native of Dublin, Ireland.
Mr. Hobson had been associated

The laie J. I).  Hobson
Slope for many years, and after being interested In the industry in California, he became attracted to the
Cariboo, and several years ago organized the Consolidated Hydraulic
Mining Company at Bullion. Quesnel
Forks, of which he was manager.
This led after a few years to tlie
Guggenheim interests becoming attracted to the Cariboo to take part
in the claims owned by the company
of which they secured control. After
spending a large amount of money
the New Y'ork capitalists ceased to
take further interest in the properties, but meanwhile Mr. Hobson
turned to develop some leases he had
in the district, and in 1310 he
brought in water to hydraulic his
new gravel interests, and last year
he was operating them when he had
to leave on account of failing health.
In 19 02 he took a very active share
in forming the Provincial Mining
Association, the first convention of
which body was held in Victoria in
February, 1903, and ne held the
office of president till it went out
of existence three years later. He
was very active at Ihe time in the
agitation for crown grants for placer
mining leases.
Mr. Hobson, who is survived by
a widow and three sons, was a member of both the Canadian Mining Institute and the American Institute of
Mining Engineers,

A. Kidman of Sydney Fears Australia
Will lose Canadian Market for
Frozen Meat and Butter
That the frozen meat and butter
trade between Australia and Canada
and the United States is gradually
slipping away from the Commonwealth and going to New Zealand Instead, owing to the fact that the
latter now has first call on the refrigerated space in the mail steamers
and enjoys a tariff advantage over
Australia of one cent per pound on
both meat and butter under a reciprocal agreement, is the statement
made in Sydney, Australia, by Arthur
Kidman, who has helped in building
up the frozen meat and butter trade
between the countries mentioned
above.
"I have travelled through Canada
and America to London almost yearly for the past twelve years,'' he said,
"and have taken a very keen interest in trade relations between Canada and Australia, also the United
States, and 1 can claim to have pioneered tlie frozen meat and butter
trade between these countries. There
are now several other shippers besides myself. Whilst travelling
through Ottawa on several occasions
1 always interviewed T. C. O'Hara
(deputy minister of trade and commerce), who has continually expressed his keen disappointment at
Australia's disinclination to appreciate Canada'! overtures for a reciprocal tarlf arrangement. I think our
previous governments have been perfectly justified in refusing to grant
Canada a reciprocal tariff, for the
reason that our exports to them were
insignificant as compared with our
imports from their country, but during the past two or three years trade
relations have considerably changed,
and our exports to and our imports
from Canada have appreciably Increased. The time has arrived when
our government should take a decided step in the interests of Australian shippers, with a view of making some satisfactory tariff arrangement with Canada.
"It is undoubtedly a fact that
Australia is most advantageously
placed for the purpose of acting as
food suppliers to the west coasts
of Canada and America, also interior
points, and providing a substantial
reduction of their duty took place,
our exports of food products—frozen
meat, butter, canned meats, onions,
potatoes, fresh fruits, etc., but particularly the three former, would
decidedly show a rapid increase.
"The Australian shipper's position
has been becoming more seriously
jeopardized day by day through the
absence of a reciprocal arrangement
with Canada, and also of some recognized Australian steamship service.
Frozen meat and frozen butter from
New Zealand enter Canada at a halfpenny per pound less than meat and
butter from Australia, and all other
food products, etc., have a similar
advantage. It. is, therefore, obvious
to anyone, on this account alone, that
New Zealand must now get the Canadian business.
"The frozen meat and butter trade,
also the trade in other food products, has been pioneer and exclusively built up by Australia, and the relinquishing of the Canadian-Australian service without previously having arranged a reciprocal agreement
with Canada, has resulted in the
Canadian-Australian trade being
handed over almost in its entirety
ready-made and firmly established
in New Zealand, who hitherto have
taken no part in tl]e pioneering work
or the establishing of this trade."

COST OF LIVING IN CANADA
According to latest Official  Reports
Average Prices Are Higher Than
They Were Twelve Months Ago
The cost of living throughout the
Dominion, as indicated by wholesale
and retails prices, rose considerably
during the past year. This interesting fact to the consumers of Canada is furnished by statistics from
the Labor Department.
The department index number of
wholesale prices stood at 130.S In
November, as compared with 130.5 in
Ihe preceding month, and 122 in the
corresponding month of last year.
The numbers are percentages in each
case of the average price level prevailing during the decade, 1890-1899,
the period selected by the department as the standard of comparison
throughout its Investigation Into
wholesale prices. Over two hundred
articles carefully selected by the department, so as to represent Canadian production and consumption,
are included in  the calculation.
Wholesale prices In the aggregate
are on practically the same level as
In the preceding month, but are considerably higher than at, the same period In 19in. Tlie chief Increases
during tho past year contributing lo
the result occurred In grains and
fodders, miscellaneous foods and
metals, there having been a decrease
in animals and meats, while the other
groups for the most part have remained steady. A rise in grain
prices and a fall in meals were also
features of the past month.
As compared wilh November of
last year, eight groups of commodities show a decrease, while ten
groups show an  Increase.
The groups which show a decrease.
together with that decrease as based
on the standard, are as follows:
Animals and meats, from 157.8 in
1910 to 137.8 in 1911; fresh meats,
from 156.0 to 152.S; texti'es, from
119.5 to 111.9; fuel and lighting,
from 100.2 to 95.8; miscellaneous
lumber materials, from 106.3 to
96.3; paints, oils, etc., from 162.3
to 152.0; drugs and chemicals, from
108.5 to 107.0; furs, from 285.9 to
255.2. Only two groups have during recent years dropped to below
the standard, while one group, furs,
has gone far above it.
The groups which show an increase for November of this year, as
compared with November of last, are
as follows: Grains and fodders, from
129.9 to 165.2; dairy produce, from
148.2 to 149.3; miscellaneous foods,
from 112.1 to 125.5; hides, leathers and boots, from 134.0 to 141,9;
metals, from 106.7 to 116.7; implements, from 105.1 to 106.1; lumber,
from 161.S to 162.2; house furnishings, from l 07,4 to 111.1; liquors
and tobaccos, from I 17.1 to 122.0;
sundries, from 108.8 to 110.8; average for November of this year, 130;
November of last year, 122.0.
The problem of the steady Increase
'in the cost of living during the past
I few years, which has borne most
heavily on the salary earning classes,
is one of the vital elements which
must enter into the deliberations of
the tariff commission to be established dining the present session of
Parliament.

VILE ACCUSATIONS
To Uie Editor of The Prince Rupert
Journal, City.
Dear Sir:—For some time past the
people of Prince Rupert have been
Heated to sensational rumors of
graft in certain administrative bodies
of tills city, including the Hoard of
Police Commissioners. These reports
have not been confined to reports on
the street comers alone, but have
been aired in the editorial columns
of an evening paper, with a similar
editorial insinuation in Ihe other
evening paper today,
So far as (he rumors of graft nie
concerned 111 the Police Board, I wish
to say that they are entirely without
foundation; in fact, fabrications
made from whole cloth anil the production of u malicious iniml.
I challenge anyone, and particularly Mayor-elect Newton, who will
in u day or two be chairman of the
Police Hoard and m a position to
investigate, to bring proof of any
graft in which I have participated
as a member of the Hoard of Police
Commissions, and to make it worth
that gentleman's while 1 agree to
deposit a marked check for $500
with any responsible person against
Mayor-elect Newton's check for a like
amount, Mayor-elect Newton's check
to bo given to the Prince Rupert
General Hospital if he cannot prove
the charges, and mine to be given
to tlie same institution if he can
prove them to the satisfaction of the
judge, said judge to be His Honor
Judge Young, of this city.

to  "deliver  the goods"'.'
Thanking you,  .Mr.   Editor,  I  am,

SETTLER'S MAIL HAGS
Aiyansh Settlement Will Get Budget
in Over Snow if at All
Possible
That II. S. Clements is making an
honest endeavor to carry out his
pledges to the people of the riding
that he would spare no pains to see
that the postal facilities were Improved in borne out by the experience of settlers in the Naas. The
government and Ihe officials on the
coast, including the local postmaster,
are doing their best to aid in the
work.
During the past summer several
families have moved into the Naas
country in the direction of Aiyansh.
These settlers, in order to get a mail
after the closing of the means of
communication by way of the river,
sought to have their mai' sent in
overland   from   Kitsumkalum.
Accordingly, one of their num-
■ Wr who was coming out that way
undertook to get tlie mail in and arrangements were made to ship the
bags to Kitsumkalum awaiting the
arrival of the settler who was to
carry them to his neighbor.
But a change In the plans of the
settler left his fellow homesteaders
in the Naas Valley without tlhe
chance of getting the mail and the
sacks lay at  Kitsumkalum.
Communicating with the local
Conservative executive, however,
soon set the machinery in motion,
andVMr. Clements was at once informed of the situation. No time was
lost by the member, who at once
took tlie matter up with the post
office officials, and since that time
there has been a series of messages
passing covering the department at
Ottawa, tlie Vancouver office, the
Prince Rupert post office and Kitsumkalum and the mail is to be
got in.
The Aiyansh settlers as they read
those letters which will go in over
the Kitsumkalum Lake road and the
rest of the way by the provincial
government trail will probably never
realize the amount of concern which
those bags gave a wide circle of
officials and the representative of
the   district.
The episode, however, shows that
in Mr. Clements the riding has a
model member, always ready to aid
any settlement, no matter how small,
or any person.
HOLDUP OUTRAGE
No  Trace  of  the   Bandits  Has   Yet
Been  Found  l>y the
Police
Vancouver, Jan. 16.— At LO:45
Saturday night, two aimed men held
up and robbed a Grand View Street
car on Venables Street, securing the
contents of the collection box after
shooting and wounding the conductor, William Barker.
The bullet struck Barker In the
head,* inflicting a scalp wound but
rendering liini unconscious. The car
was inbound to the city, and it believed only one passenger was
aboard, a woman. The men made
their escape in a motor car. They
carried off the controller of the car,
so it could not run.
About the same flour two men
entered a grocery store al the coiner of Hastings Street East and Carl
Avenue and held up two clerks at
the points of revolvers. They secured over $40 fr,oin the till and
escaped.
No trace of the bandit, who held
up a street car Saturday night and
shot the conductor in the head when
he resisted lias been found, despite
the fact that the company offered
$1,000 reward. The conductor will
recover.

Tiahn Point will be again in operation in a few days. The work was
stopped on account of the lack of
pipe, for which Mr. Slater, the expert
in charge, went to Vancouver.
The bore has reached the six hundred foot level, with indications that
are most favorable.
With the opening of spring, there
are indications that other sydicates

GROWTH OF MASSET
Settlers Are Taking  L'p Their Residence—Cannery to He Built at
Naden Harbor
(Special Correspondence)
Masset, Jan. 18.—The holiday
festivities are still in progress at
Masset. Basket socials, dances, dinners and entertainments have been
indulged in and all were well attended. The Masset Indian Band
held a basket social and the proceeds
amounted to $110. Dances were
held nightly, and two masquerade
balls. Judge Harrison entertained his
friends at a social dance and dinner.
Hospital   at   Masset
Arrangements are In progress for
the construction of an hospital at
Masset. The Natural Resources
Company contributed a block of land
and subscriptions are being received
by Treasurer James Martin. A building of this description is very much
needed on the north end of Graham
island, the only refuge for patients
having blown down during a recent
gale. II is understood that the government will place a sum on the
estimates to assist tlie energetic committee which has been formed to take
charge of the proposed hospital.
New Anglican Church
Ground is being cleared for the
new Anglican Church at Collison Avenue, Masset. The proposed structure
will be placed near the new school-
house.
Cannery at Naden  Harbor
The steamer Claxton will arrive
at Masset shortly with men and material for the construction of a cannery at Naden Harbor. The building of a wharf and cannery will be
proceeded with without delay, and
will be under the superintendence of
Mr.  Wallace.
Settlers  Coming   In
Ten new settlers arrived on tlie
last steamer and located at Tow Hill.
This section of the island Is becoming the favorite resort for pre-einp-
tors and is now occupied by a large
number of Immigrants,
Roads Building
Work is proceeding on two roads,
from the head of Masset Inlet, to
tho coal mines of the Yakoun River.
It is expected that two hundred men
will be engaged in mining during
the summer, when the roads will be
completed and development work carried  on.

Controlling more dredging and
hydraulic gold bearing ground than
the Yukon Gold Company, owned by
the Guggenheims, whose invasion of
the Klondike he made possible, A. M.
Treadgold, a well known mining
operator, passed through the city
yesterday, says the Vancouver News-
Advertiser, on his way to London,
England, to consolidate all his interests in one big corporation with a
probable capitalization of about
$10,000,000. This modern Monte
Christo spent the past summer in the
north completing deals for additional
purchases and waiting for the completion of a power line which supplied electrical energy to a territory
within a radius of sixty miles of the
Yukon capital. His total disbursements during tlie past six months for
claims and improvements are said
to exceed $1,200,000. He now owns
virtually all the best hydraulic
ground on Dominion, Sulphur, Gold
Run, Flat Creek, as well as valuable
dredging leases on the Klondike
River.
Most of the liydraulicing area was
operated In ,a crude way by placer
miners in the early days of the Klondike and yielded fortunes aggregating millions of dollars. The installation of giant monitors and elevators, it is expected, will enable Mr.
Treadgold's company to rework all
this ground at a great profit. A
programme of improvement which
will take several years to get into
shape has been adopted. A ditch and
pipe line has already been completed. Dredges have been ordered from
Dominion Creek, and will be assembled next summer in time to go into
commission before tlie season. Additional expenditures include the
placing of dredges on the Klondike
River, as well as on several of the
creeks, and will involve the expenditure of at  least  $2,500,000.
The principal holdings are now
vested in the Granville Mining Company and there with the power interests will be turned over to the new
corporation now being organized
with the co-operation of London capitalists. Mr. Treadwell has had a
romantic and strenuous career in the
Klondike since the first days of the
famous gold rush. It has been his
fate at various periods to 1 jtmesi
fate to experience at var'ous periods
a share of adversity as well as phenomenal good luck. Friends state
that he is now lining up for a grand
final "cleanup." lie came out over

Imposing the spectacular side of
tho Delhi Durbar must have been
when the Emperor of Indian received
the homage of the Indian princes,
history will probably attach more Importance to the fact that the Indian
government seized the opportunity
to announce two radical changes in
the imperial administration. Of
there the first, and most Important,
is the shifting of tlie capital from
Calcutta, where English viceroys
have resided for many years, to the
ancient Mogul city of Delhi. The
precise scope of the other change is
not quite clear from tlie dispatches
ho far received, but it seems that
the viceroy and his,council, with the
consent of the British cabinet, have
decided practically to undo Lord
Curzon's much debated policy of the
partition of Bengal, creating a new
governorship for that vast province,
which will reunite the Bengali speaking peoples whom Lord Curzon separated for reasons partly political
and partly administrative, says the
Brooklyn  Eagle.
Delhi can claim the most picturesque and varied history of any
city in India. Afghons, Moguls, Mah-
rattas, Persians and British have
successfully held it. It was robbed
of the georgeous Peacock Throne
when Nadir Shah plundered it in
the middle of the eighteenth century
and carried back to Teheran fifty
million dollars in gold and silver,
besides jewels of incalculable value.
It came into the hands of the British in 1803 when Lord Lake overthrew the Mahratta squadrons under
Its walls. The brief restablishment
of Indian rule during the great Mutiny of 1857 is recalled by men still
living, as, also, are the Incidents of
the famous siege, such as the blowing up and storming of the Kashmir
Gate that cost the British more than
a thousand killed, among whom was
John Nicholson, one of the noblest
figures in Indian history. The Delhi
of today dates only from the middle
of the seventeenth century, but it
stands upon the ruins of older cities,
some relics of which are still preserved.
The moving of the capital and the
establishment of a new governorship in Bengal come as a great surprise to the great majority of both
parties in England. Lord Curzon,
the former viceroy of India; Lord
Lansdowne, leader of the Opposition in the House of Lords, and
Bonar Law, leader of the Opposition
in the House of Commons, have all
expressed their astonishment and announced that they intend to question
the government closely in regard to
both changes as soon as the Durbar
festivities are over. The government at home and the government In
India will not, however, recede one
step. The shift of the new capital
and the creation of the new governorship are the results of long and
careful deliberation on the part of
the present Indian administration,
which feels that Lord Curzon's
adroitly conceived policy of playing
off the Mohammedans against the
Hindus has not produced the results
expected of It. Whether the conciliatory attitude of the Hardlnge administration toword the Hindus, an
attitude expressed in the reunion of
Bengal, will tend to cure the political unrest from which violence and
murder have sprung can only be conjectured. Obviously, tho Indion Office in London and Ihe Indian administration in Calcutta have high
hopes. Time alone will show
Whether those hopes are well
founded.

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
sever have "air leaks"—
For around every opening into the body there
is a   Malleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed in such joints.    They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built In this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction

DISCO! MR NEW BEARING METAL
Krupp Makes Important Find Willi
Respect to Mechanics
In'the course of scientific Investigations It often happens that search
for one particular thing will develop
others perhaps more valuable that
the actual object of the search. An
instance of the sort recently occurred
in the great Krupp steel works in
Germany where the metallurgists,
making labaortory experiments with
a view to producing a special steel
for automobile parts, accidentally
produced an alloy of unprecedented
hardness.
According to the report, a thin
plate of this metal resisted the fervor of the oxy-acetylene flame for
several hours—for so long, in fact,
that the idea at once occurred to
the metallurgists that a safe made
of the new alloy would resist the
attentions of burglars long enough
to discourage them or permit the
guardians of the people to take a
hand in the game. It is said that
the Krupp works will use the newly
found steel in the manufacture of
ball bearings and other parts requiring great hardness.
