UNFAIR   TACTICS
The  "News"  Refused  to  Allow  Any
Answer to Its Assertions.
City. Solicitor  Is Not  Given  Opportunity to Correct Statements
in  Paper's Columns
i
k
Fred Peters, K. C, city solicitor,
has taken occasion to meet some
legal points which the News has
raised with respect to the bylaws
and the voting on Saturday. As the
one charged with the legal end of
the business, it would seem only
proper that Mr. Peters should be
given an opportunity to meet any
such criticism as the News made.
But it is evident that the News
does not desire to meet the issues
fairly and give the public the whole
facts as they may be presented. Accordingly, when Mr. Peters sent a
letter to the News for .publication
In which he met the representations
put forth through the columns of
the News, the letter was not published. Inquiry as to why it was not
published, fought the answer that
it was too Impertinent.
The letter whlcie Mr. Peters sent
to the News follows. It Is left to
the fair minded citizens lo judge
whether the city solicitor went beyond what was fair and gentlemanly
in thus presenting his views, and
whether the excuse offered for not
publishing It was one which indicated any desire on the part of the
News to be fair In the matter.
Dear Sir—Owing to the position
that I occupy as city solicitor 1 deem
that it would be Improper for me
to take any active part in any election affecting municipal mntters, but
In the News of the 29th inst. there
appears an article which'in my opinion should be answered by me, as I
personally drew the contract in question. The article Is headed, "Property Owners Point Out Flaw In the
Assessment Agreem^t."
The substance of the supposed flaw
Ul that It would be posslTje for the
■j 1. P. Railway to take a conveyance from the Townsite company
of all property owned by the Town-
site .'ompany and then to claim exemption not only for the property
originally owned by the railway company but also for the property now
owned by the Townsite company. I
have no hesitation in saying that as
a matter of law such a proposition,
to put it mildly, is absolute nonsense. Anyone looking at the agreement which is set out full In the
bylaw will notice that both the railway company and the Townsite
company are parties, and by the very
first recital in the agreement it is
shown that there is a question with
regard to the taxation of the lands
belonging to the railway company,
and there is also a recital showing
that the Townsite company owns certain properties. The part of the
agreement, namely Sections 11 and
12, which relate to the fixing of the
amount to be taxed, clearly applies
to the property mentioned in the first
recital, which is the property owned
by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
at the time the agreement was made.
I have no hesitation In stating in
the clearest manner so that every
ratepayer can have a full understanding of the matter that it is perfectly
clear that a transaction such as that
suggested In the News article of the
29th of August is a perfect impossibility and even If the Townsite Co.
were to attempt such a thing, which
Is not for a moment to be Imagined,
It would be utterly futile. I venture
to say that no lawyer of standing
can be induced to say that any other
construction than that which I now
put upon the agreement Is tenable.
Again, in the News of the 30th
inst., it is stated in very large letters as follows, "Many Property
Owners to Be Disfranchised," and In
its editorial it boldly stated that
every citizen of Prince Rupert who
has purchased property since December, 1910, Is disfranchised, and that
all those persons who havi sold their
property since December, 1910, are
to be voters instead. I would be
greatly obliged to the News If It
would inform me who was the author
of this very peculiar proposition. In
point of fact, this Is also a matter
which comes peculiarly within my
department, and I desire to say that
every person who has taken the trouble to give a proper declaration to
the assessor up to within  five days
VOTE FOR THE BY-LAWS
EXPLAINED BY-LAWS
(Continued on Page Eight)
Tomorrow from 9 hi the forenoon
until 7 In the afternoon the property
owners of the city will be called upon
to express their opinions with respect
to two bylaws—one confirming the
agreement with the G. T. P. and the
other in favor of Installing a permanent water supply and in conjunction with it a hydro-electric system
for city lighting and power.
In the best interests of Prince Rupert these two bylaws should carry.
In the case of the G. T. P. a settlement has been reached which it is
admitted is the very best that could
be obtained. The ratification of this
bylaw by the citizens will mean that
all differences between the G. T. P.
and the city will be settled on the
most amicable understanding and no
jarring note exists to interfere with
investments from the outside. At
this particular moment, when in-i
vestors have their eye upon the city,
and when they are preparing to put
money in in anticipation of the tremendous boom about the time the
G. T. P. Is completed, it would be
worse than folly to vote against a
bylaw, the defeat of which Is bound
Is leave an  uncertain  feeling.
There should be no second thought
with respect to closing up this taxation question with the G. T. P. and
at the same time let the city reap
in addition to these other considerations the advantages which are to
follow from an aggressive policy of
development by the company.
What is true of the G. T. P. agreement is also in large measure true
of the waterworks bylaw. It is a
dangerous precedent to start In a
city of voting down money bylaws
to provide for absolute necessities in
the city's development because there
may be some little difference of opinion with respect to the members of
the council or some of the details.
Animosities are engendered that it
may take years to overcome and
which may result in the repeated defeat of bylaws which are for necessary expenditures.
There are plenty of Instances on
the Coast to warn the citizens against
such a course. Victoria, the capital
of the province, has suffered very
materially in the matter of water
because of the unsettling condition
that has arisen as a result of fighting fractions quarreling over the self
same subject of water supply.
The course which is being advised
in certain quarters against voting for
the bylaw, that it should be turned
down awaiting (he return of a new
council is the most vicious of principles to introduce into municipal
affairs. This is a course to be pursued only in the most extreme cases.
If put into effect it will spell ruin
in this city. It is sure to create
friction that will result as previously
stated, In the defeat of similar bylaws as often as they come up—not
on their merits, but on fractional
fights.
The advocates of such n course at
this time are not the friends of tiie
city in any sense. They are the arch
enemies of the best interests of the
city, and property owners who look
to the welfare of tlie place would
do well to most carefully consider
the step which they are advised to
take.
The fear with respect to the expenditure of the money by this or
that member of the council is a false
Issue to raise likewise. The money
will be expended by the council as
a whole. The citizens can rest assured that there Will be no disbursement of the funds so voted without
the active consent of the mayor of
the city, who is die executive head.
In Mayor Manson the citizens wifl
all be satisfied that the money will
be well expended.
Even the most ardent opponents
of public ownership will be slow to
Condemn the system of tlelng the
hydro-electric system up to the water supply in this Instance. With a
water system to be installed of necessity, the electric system is made
possible at a much lower price than
would otherwise be the case. In
some respects it Is to be regarded as
a "by-product" of the water supply.
Whatever may be done in the matter
of the main supply of power for this
city, which must call for the expenditure of an immense sum of money,
the system which is now proposed for
the city will provide for immediate
purposes and a supplementary supply to the large one for all time to
come.
To vote against tlie bylaws at the
present time when all eyes are on
the city would be a serious blow to
tlie place. It would be interpreted as
a lack of confidence in the city on
the part of its own citizens.
A vote in favor of the bylaws by
Members of Council Net the  Citizens
of Prince Rupert in Empress
Theatre.
The
Main  Features of (he Propositions  to   Be  Voted   Upon
Are Set Forth
Last Tuesday evening a mass meet-
a sweeping majority will indicate tolnS °f citizens was held in the Em-
the outside that Prince Rupert is
prepared to provide facilities for a
large city; that Prince Rupert citizens are preparing for an immense
city and are ready to grapple with
the big questions that must be faced.
Others in a position to give the
facts have dealt with the issues involved as to the yearly expenditure I
upon the interest and sinking fund
to provide for the works, the profits
to be derived from the plant and
the advantages to the city.
The expenditure of the money is
to be made upon the advice of tlie
best technical information obtainable, being put in the hands of competent electrical engineers that no
bungling may be expected.
The Journal feels fully justified
in admonishing those who are opposing these bylaws to look to the best
interests of the city, to lay aside all
petty reason for opposition and to
unite in voting for what will aid
materially in the development of the
city.

Richmond, Que., Sept. 1.—R. L.
Borden arrived here yesterday afternoon in the course of his tour of
the Eastern Townships and spoke before a large audience in support of
Mr. Hays, the Opposition candidate
In the constituency. Mr. Borden
was given a cordial reception, which
lie acknowledged in a short address
in   French,  following  In  English.
He took in review the entire record of the government. The great
danger to Canada's national life,
which lie considers tlie proposed reciprocity pact involves, was Mr. Borden's special message to the decorate
oi the country.

G.T.P. OFFICIALS ON
INSPECTION TOUR
President Hays and a Large Party Visit the  City—
Divisional Points Selected—Land Commissioner
Will Proceed to Locations
Next Week.
This week Prince Rupert has had
a large party of G. T. P. officials
visiting here. The visit is one of
inspection and the greater part of
the party has gone on to Hazelton
to see how the work is progressing
there. The -company reached port
on the Prlnc* Rupert on Wednesday,
including A. W. Smithers of London,
England, chairman of the board of
directors; Charles M. Hays, president of the road; E. J. Chamberlin,
vice president, and Mrs. Chamberlin; Henry Deer of London; Mr. and
Mrs. Swanston of London, the later
being the daughter of Mr. Smithers;
Miss Jackson of London; G. W. Ry-
ley, land commissioners; W. C. Davis,
Passenger traffic manager; W. P.
Hinton, general passenger agent; Mr.
Dalrymple, Kir. Pullin, Mr. Galloway,
secretary to Mr. Hays; Mr. Kinsella,
secretary to Mr. Chamberlin. Capt.
Nicholson, manager of the steamship service, accompanied the party
from Vancouver, and Captain Gibson of theh Pacific Stevedoring Company and his daughters also came
north with the party
Only a short stay was made in the
city by the main party as they left
on Wednesday afternoon by special
train for the end of the steel in company with (he general superintendent, W. C. C. Mehan, and Superintendent McNJrhol of this city.
They proceeded by steamer from
the end of the track, expecting to
visit Hazelton and the Buroundlng
district and return to the city Sunday night so as to be ready to leave
Monday  morning  for  the south.
Mr. SiiiiUiei'fi was well pleased
with the progress the city was making. Mr. Hays, who confirms the
report that the tender for the last
section of the road had been awarded, expects to see good time made
on its completion. No one, he points
out, is more anxious  than  the rail
way compan to see the road finished,
and a revenue producer. He. points
"but that Tete Jaune Cache will be
reached this winter and from there
westward there is good communication in the way of waterways for

Mr. Ryley, the land commissioner,
has remained in the city while the
other officials went on to the construction work. He has business to
transact with David H. Hays, the
agent of the Development company
here, but will make a trip as far as
Aldermere  after  the  return  of  the
Speaking of the selection of divisional points, Mr. Ryley says the
first one has been selected at Mile
118, which is several miles from
Ellison. The next divisional point
Is ..planned for Miles 235, which is
near Aldermere, and will likely be
named Aldermere. Mr. Ryley will
go there on his trip to the interior
and look Into the question of laying
this townsite out to the best advantage. At Mile 262, Houston will be
a G. T. P. town, and then at Endico,
on Fraser Lake, will be another town,
with a second one on the lake which
has not been decided upon yet. Mr-
Ryley experts that he may go as far
as Houston on this trip.
Speaking of Ihe sale at the divisional points on the prairies, Mr.
Ryley points oul lhat In Rivers, Melville, Water, Iliggar, Wainwrlght,
Tofield, Scott and Edson about
$2,760,000 worth of lots have, been
sold.
At Mirror, a divisional point between Tofield and Calgary on a
branch line a quarter of u million
dollars worth of sand was sold at a
recent sale.
This all shows the Immense values
which are being invested in the territory through which the G. T. P, is
passing and which will come within
touch directly of Prince Rupert In
the course of the next few years.

press Theatre, when Mayor Manson
and other members of the council
we're given an opportunity of presenting their views on tlie bylaws to
be submitted to the property owners tomorrow. The presence eif Mr.
Ross, superintendent of electric lighting in Seattle, was taken advantage
of to give the citizens exact information upon the technical side of the
question. Mr. Ross is a Canadian by
birth who has for years been at the
head of the electric lighting In Seattle. He is firmly convinced as to
tne wisdom of passing the bylaws
from the standpoint of the public
benefit.
Mayor's Views
His worship outlined the hindrances that had occurred before being able to bring these by'aws before the people. The history of tlie
settlement with the Q, T. P. was
traced together with the delay that
had followed in that connection. The
council had decided that it would be
wiser to bring these bylaws before
Ihe  people together.
Referring to the G. T. P. contention for a reduction in the taxation,
His Worship said that an agreement
was reached. Taking up the contention made in the News of that
evening that the Development company might convey the lands to tlie
railway company and thus avoid the
regular rate of taxation he said this
was untenable. If the Development
company did convey them, the lands
would come into the position of being affected by the mortgage to the
Oominion government arising out of
the guarantee of the bonds, which
was not a likely thing for the company to do.
Money  Available
With the settlement with the
(J. T. P. Railway Company e'lime the
assurance from the Bank of Montreal that there was to be available
for the city, $1,000,000. The lands
secured in fee simple to the city
from the government was referred to
by the mayor, who showed that the
value of these, according to the assessment, was $172,270.
The fact was refered to that the
agreement existed for only ten years.
It was a good one and one he had
no hesitation In recommending to
the people. Taking 10 mills as the
net rate that it was expected would
be the rate tills year ihe G. T. P. was
getting off with a half rate of taxation. He was not there to take
great credit for the construction of
these terminal works, such as station houses, etc. These would have
to come in the course of events but
by this arrangement they would expedite tlie work. The company had
put on a line of good steamers to
connect with the cities in the sputh.
These, according to report, were not

fl PRINCE RUPERT JOLRNAL
Friday, September 1, 1911.
Then and Now
Mr. Pugsley's reciprocity organs appear to be deriving peculiar satisfaction from the fact that some twenty
years ago the Conservative party of
Canada was in favor of better trade
relations with the United States. The
only excuse, for reviewing events
which happened in 1S91 is the foolish assertion that an attempt is being made by Conservative speakers
and newspapers "to create the impression that the Conservative leaders never were in favor of reciprocal trade with the United States."
No speaker or journal familiar with
the political history of Canada
would make such a statement. It
is a matter of record, and no new
discovery on the part of the Telegraph, that the electors in 1891 returned Sir John Thompson with a
mandate to negotiate for better trade
relations with the United States.
The Telegraph itself supplies the
reason why twenty years ago this
mandate was given when it says
"Canada was poorer and less populous in those days." The means of
transportation had not developed.
The time consumed in transporting
goods overseas was a serious consideration. Neither interprovincial nor
imperial trade had reached its present vast proportions. But the negotiations failed. The United States
demanded conditions which In the
opinion of tlie Conservative government of the day could not be conceded. Preferential entrance for
American goods over the products
of Great Britain was the price. Cau-
adafcefused to accept the terms, and
turned with renewed energy to develop her own resources and increase
her trade with the Mother Country.
Thus ended the negotiations.
Has there been any occasion since
for regrets? "There was a time,"
declared Sir Wilfrid Laurier in 1907,
"when we wanted reciprocity with
the United States, but our efforts
and offers were put aside. We have
said good-bye to that trade and we
now put all our hopes upon the British trade.' Not a voice was raised
against the premier when he made
that statement. His declared policy
in 1907 was the same as that which
has guided the Conservative party
since the failure of the negotiations
in 1891. "No more pilgrimages to
Washington" was a common ground
of agreement as regards the tariff.
Nothing in the campaign of 1908 was
said to alter that policy. Empire
trade, binding Canada ever closer to
the .Mother Country and the Sister
Nations,  was  the common  goal."
Suddenly,   like   a   bolt   from   the
blue, without mandate from the people,  iu  direct  contravention   of  the
premier's pledge given only last year
that a  tariff commission  should  he
appointed before anything was done,
we find Mr. Fielding and Mr. Paterson   hooked   for  another  pilgrimage
to  Washington   with   plenipotentiary j
powers   to   negotiate   a   reciprocity!
agreement  which the Canadian par-
Iiamenl   is   told   must    be    accepted i
without question eel' a single item, or ■
change   in   the  smallest    particular.!
Tlie Telegraph regards the agreement
"by all exlils the biggest piece of constructive  legislation  since  tlie  inau-j
guratlon   of   the   British   perfence."
Reciprocity  with   the  United   States'
stands on an entirely different plane.
It is revolutionary, tending towards
continentallsm and repugnant to the
national  ami   Imperial  policy  which
has made Canada what she is.
i
The   press   of   the   United   Stales
almost without exception welcome it
as  the.  forerunner of a  commercial
and   political   union,   and   a   deadly
blow at British connection.   The New I

"what reciprocity means to America," j

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

makes the issue abundantly clear. It
says: "We have many things that
Canadians want, and they have many
things that we want. We look forward to the day when this whole
Nortli American continent will be
one great nation, as it should be.
"But we do not suggest 'annexing'
Canada—that would be impertinent
and impossible, except as the result
of conflict abhorrent to every decent
man. We have in our hearts no
thought of annexing Canada or of
committing any national theft—but
we should be very glad and very
proud if one day Canada would kindly annex us. In other words, Canada, when she is ready, can step into
the great, well known firm of U. S.
it Co., and take her place as a full
partner, and a very welcome partner.
It would be like taking an admirable
first class young man into a big first
class firm—the transaction equally
honorable to both partners.
"Canada would have her own say
as she now has In her own affairs
—as Texas or Maine has—and she
would also have her full say in the
legislation and elections that control
the destines of this continent. She
would lose nothing, no fraction of
autonomy—she would gain her partnership in a big concern while giving   up   nothing.

partnership and prefers to stick to

American statesmen and their

the interests of their country at the

commercial future. That is their
business. Loyal Canadians, with national and imperial aims, will see a
greater and nobler destiny in store

RECIPROCITY   IS   NOT   WANTED
We have said that the reason
wiich led one political party all the
time down to 1897, and both parties
occasionally, to favor reciprocity
hive long ceased to exist. If this
statement is contradicted by certain
Liberals we appeal once more from
them to their leader. The following
are quotations from public declarations of Sir Wilfrid Laurier:
I "If we know the hearts and minds
<(f our people at present, I think I
am not making too wide a statement
when I say that the general feeling
in Canada is not in favor of recl-
jrocity. There was a time when
Canadians would have given many
things to obtain the American market. There was a time when the
iiarket of the great cities of the
tnion was the only market we had
r any of our products, but, thank
hkaven, these days are past and over
new. We are not dependent on the
Jlnerican market as we were at one
tpie."
Sir Wilfrid in the Canadian House
Commons in 1899.
"I have found, in the short experi-
ce during which it has been my
ivilege and my fortune to be placed
the head of affairs, by the will
the Canadian people that the best
afd most effective way to maintain
friendship with our American neighbors is to be absolutely independent
oi them."
|Sir Wilfrid Laurier in the House
ol Commons in 1903.
I "If we are to follow the laws of
nittire and geography between Canada and the United States, the whole
trade would flow from south to
mirth, and from north to south. We
have done everything possible by
building canals and subsidizing railways to bring the trade from the
west to east and east to west, so
as to bring trade Into British channels. All this have we done, recog-
ninzing the principle of the great advantage of forcing trade within the
British Empire. There Is no boundary line except a purely conventional one over the territory of North
America. Their habits are the same
as ours and, therefore, we are in-
due-ed to trade and cannot help It by
the force of nature. But so far as
legislation can influence trade we
have-j ione everything possible to
pusy Air trade towards the British
pe'Ppll as against the American
peopjs.
'■T^iere was a time when we wanted reciprocity with the United states,
but efur efforts and our offers were
put aside. We have said goodbye to
that trade and we now put all our
hopes upon the British trade."

"UNBROKEN FRONT"
The  following communication  appeared in a recent issue of the Montreal Star:
To the Editor of The Montreal Star:
Sir—I am glad to see your paper
"putting up" a clean, impersonal
fight against reciprocity; sticking to
the issue; pounding at the monstrosity known as the pact, and exposing
the utterances of the American politicians, who talk about Canada—who
offend our susceptibilities—who insult our patriotism—as if we could
not, and would not, read their utterances, or digest or apply their arguments properly. Keep up the good
work. You have hundreds and hundreds of Liberals with you. I can
tell you, sir, that when politicians
talk about the "unbroken front" of
the Liberal party, they do not stop
to recount the record; they do not
mean what they say; they Impose
upon the credulity and partisanship
of their followers. I am a Liberal;
apart from the question of reciprocity, I have supported my leaders—
let me say it fronkly, through some
deals that I did not like. The "unbroken front" argument does not
stand the most casual examination;
and In examining it, I am tempted to
say I believe reciprocity Is more responsible for the present chaotic condition than any other question. It
Is, therefore, revelant for me—one
who has broken with his party on
that question—torecount the various
directions in which the Liberal party
is breaking up. I repeat, I challenge
the boast of the "Unbroken Front."

FOREIGN INTERFERENCE
The Ottawa Citizen, which has
hitherto accorded moderate support
to reciprocity, while in other respects
aiding the Conservative causes, publishes a long editorial, in which it
says that the New York Herald has
recently established a bureau at Ottawa to boom reciprocity, and it devotes nearly a page every day to
one-sided reports, booming Sir Wilfrid Laurier's reciprocity campaign
in Canada, says an Ottawa despatch.
"'The average Canadian," says the
Citizen, "will ask himself why the
New York Herald is so tremendously
anxious that reciprocity should be
railroaded through by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier's government at the present
time. Does any sane Canadian believe that this sudden interest is
not based on a desire that the United
States shall be advantageously affected by the result on September
21? On the contrary, while President Taft is fighting to stem the
recent tide in favor of tariff revision
by the Democratic party, his journalistic auxiliaries are doing their best
to hurry Canada headlong Into a bad
bargain. And If President Taft can
succeed In committing Canada to
reciprocity in the meantime, his position and that of the Republican
party will be greatly strengthened.
"Obviously, the prudent course for
Canada is not to allow herself to
be made a cat's paw by President
Taft."
The Boston Transcript, in its Ottawa letter, dares the Canadian people to reject the reciprocity agreement, saying that the United States
would justly resent such a verdict,
regarding it as a slap in the face to
President Taft, and to both political parties in the United States.

Victoria plans to hold a very elaborate carnival, with all the features
of entertainment and Interest that
made the Seattle Potlatch so great a
success. With Victoria's well known
advantages and beauties the carnival
committee Is by no means handicapped; in fact, there is no city In the

constituted for a successful carnival.
Further announcements will appear
of the date of the excursion. They

THE BYLAW
Tomorrow tlie city of Prince Rupert will vote upon tlie first bylaw
involving any considerable amount
of money, li is a duty which the
citizens owe- to tlie place to see that
the bylaw carries with a good majority. In submitting money bylaws
it is impossible lo so arrange them
than every out in the community
will be satisfied with all tlie details.
Opinions will differ to some extent
as long as society is constituted as
at present.
That one cannot agree with every
detail of the bylaws to be voted upon
tomorrow is no reason why the bylaws should be defeated.
The city needs water and it needs
power. Tlie bylaws provide a means
for getting these quickly and cheaply. They should therefore be acted
upon and authority given to proceed witli as little delay as possible.
The passing of tlie bylaws will
nave a beneficial influence upon
trade in tlie city this winter and
next summer while tlie citizens are
waiting lor the completion of the
G. T. P. The railway company will
be prepared to go on with its undertakings, wliich lias a double advantage of giving employment and also
establishing confidence on the outside.
The city council will award some
of its contracts lor putting in water
and light, which will produce a pay
roll and directly affect every Hue of
business in tlie city. It is a suicidal
course on the part of citizens to vote
against these bylaws under the prevailing conditions. W'e ask the ratepayers to carefully consider what
delay means before casting a vote
against the bylaws.
The assurance is given in connection with tlie work that it will be
administered In the most businesslike manner. One of the most competent electrical engineers to be obtained is to be given charge of the
work and the money will be expended upon Ills advice, all interference
by the council being withdrawn.
This will ensure tlie work being done
in a manner that should remove all
opposition and prevent the chance
of any mismanagement.
From start to finish the baseball

horticultural matters here and in the
district and is making a full investigation into conditions. Mr. Cunningham is very proud of the distinction
which-*the province now has of having absolutely stamped out the codling moth, which gained an entrance
to the province a few years ago
but has now been eradicated.
Through the efforts of Mr. Cunningham in no small degree is due
the credit for keeping the fruit of

"The new garden of Canada will
be found in the Nechaco and Bulkley
Valleys," said R. C. W. Lett, travelling passenger and colonization
agent of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. "I have never seen such
fruits and vegetables as those grown
by the pioneers in that part of the
province, and in all the valleys and
on the pleatues the growth of the
pea vine is wonderful. Bulkley Valley in time will become the most
prosperous district for mixed fanning in Western Canada.
"After leaving the train at Wolf
Creek, near Edson, we started westward with guides, packers and thirty
horses. The first noteworthy district through which we passed was
Jasper Park, the national reserve on
the Alberta-British Columbia boundary. Among many natural wonders we discovered hot springs with
an unvarying temperature of 127 degrees Fahrenheit, ihe hottest springs
in the Canadian Rockies.
"Beyond Jasper Park we approached Lake Helena, a beautiful
body of water lying at the foot of
Mount Robson 13,700 feet high, the
grandest peak in the North Rockies.
.Mount White Horn, 11,500 feet,
stands beside it, fol.iiing the other
half of a twin reflection in the waters of Helena. Then proceeding
through Nechaco and Bulkley Valleys we reached the Skeena and Hazelton, where we deserted our pack
train for tlie steamer. At one place
in the Bulkley Valley I found that
the black top soil was over six feet
in depth, and there the wild pea-
vine grew luxuriantly, providing a
I fodder for horses and cattle not
equalled by the most succulent
I grasses of the prairies. I saw sleek-
j ed cattle In the Bulkley Valley than
'any 1 have seen in the'most favored
parts of Ontario or the maritime
provinces. Wild strawberries and a
species of huckleslieriies grow In the
greatest profusion, and he had fish
fruits every day.

NEW FACTORY PLANNED
NEW WESTMINSTER—The British-Canadian Lumber Corporation,
Limited, will start work immediately
on their new factory, which is to be
erected at the upper end of Lulu
Island, just across the bridge from
tlie Royal City mills, within the city
limits of New Westminster. An electrically driven sawmill and a box
and door factory, representing an expenditure of half a million dollars,
irrespective of the cost of the site
will be erected. The site itself, which
contains forty acres, was purchased
at an estimated cost of about $265,-
000, the land having been procured
from differeent owners of contigous
properties. The plans for the proposed mill have been prepared by A.
Pracna, a sawmill expert, who recently took up his residence in this
city. The mill will have a capacity
of about 250,000 feet daily in addition to the output of the box and
door factory, and will employ between 250 and 300 hands. The company expects to have it in operation
about January 1 of next year.

FIRE BRICK
PERNIE—John     Todhunter     has
been five years in the Fording River
Valley,  on  the property of the Im-
1 perial Coal and Coke Company.   Besides prospecting for coal, of which
[the   company   has   now   twenty-six
j seams opened up, ranging from four
I to thirty feet in width, he has tested
various seams of fire clays and hard
blue Biliclous rock. It has been found
j that the clays contain too much iron
I to*  withstand   the   highest   temperatures without fluxing, but the flints
make a  first  class  fire brick.   Most
'of the fire brick we get is made of
a similar flint, mixed with more plastic  clay to assist In  moulding and
handling when green.    Mr. Todhunter is certain  that various seams of
high grade silicious rocks abound in
this district and that the time is not
far distant when first class fire brick
will   be   manufactured   in   this   district.    Mr. Todhunter has had considerable experience in the fire brick
business and will be glad to furnish
particulars   of   possibilities   In   lhat
line to any Interested parties.

By-Law
BYLAW OF THE CITY OF PRINCE RUPERT TO PROVIDE FOR THE
CONSTRUCTION OF A HYDRO-E LEOTRIC SYSTEM TO SUPPLY THE
CITY OF PRINCE RUPERT WITH WATER, ELECTRIC LIGHT AND
POWER AND TO CREATE AND SECURE A DEBT FOR THE
PURPOSE OF CONSTRUCTING THE SAID SYSTEM AMOUNTING
TO ff*5e*50.000.00.
WHEREAS, by the .Municipal Clauses Act and Amending Acts, tho
City of Prince Rupert Is authorized to :oiistruct, operate and maintain
works for supplying for any or ull purposes, water, water power, electric
light, and electric power to the inhabitants of the said city and localities
adjacent thereto, and for regulating rates, conditions, and terms under
which such works are to be completed and used.
AND, WHEREAS, it has been considered expedient for tho City of
Prince Rupert to construct and maintain works to obtain a permanent
supply of water for the use of the inhabitants of the said city, and any
persons, who may be adjacent to the pipe lines, constructed hereunder,
such water to be used for all purposes for wliich tlie said City may legally
supply water, such works to be so constructed as to furnish electric power
to be used by the said City for all purposes for which the said City is
authorized by statute to apply the same.
AND, WHEREAS, the water from Woodworth Lake, situated on the
Tsimpsean Peninsula, can be utilized for tlie purpose of obtaining a good
and sufficient supply of water for the said City, and also for the purpose
of supplying electric power for the use of the said City.
AND, WHEREAS, instead of constructing two separate. systems, one
for the supply of water, and the other for producing electric power, tlte
Council have concluded that n combination of the two systems In one
will be much more economical and equally ns efficient.
AND, WHEREAS, in order to effect such a combination, it will be
necessni*}* to install mains from tlie point of diversion to the point, where
the power plant is to be constructed, of sufficient diameter to carry water
for both purposes, which will be much more than would be required for
either the water supply or tbe electric system alone.
AND, WHEREAS, considering the above recited facts, the Council
have determined to treat tbe whole scheme as a joint undertaking and to
provide for the construction of the same as such.
AND, WHEREAS, the general description of the proposed Hydro-
Electric System is as follows: —
A dam to be erected at a suitable point near the outlet of Woodworth
Lake; from that point the water to be piped down to a point at or near
the bend of Shawatlans Lake, the said pipe to be of a capacity large enough
to carry sufficient water for the supply of the City of Prince Rupert, and
also to operate at or near the head of Shawatlans Lake, a plant for the
purpose of generating electric'ty; and after leaving tbe head of Shawatlans
Lake the water will be piped into the City of Prince Rupert, nnd there
be distributed by a proper distribution system, and the electric power
will be brought Into the said City by transmission lines from the head
of Shawatlans Lake.
AND, WHEREAS, the amount of the debt necessary to be incurred
by the City of Prince Rupert for the construction of the said Hydro-Electric
Plant, and the necessary distribution system connected therewith, is the
sum of $550,000.00.
AND, WHEREAS, the total amount which will have to be raised
annually for the purpose of paying the s aid debt and interest will be
$28, 0-18.i>4.
AND, WHEREAS, the said Hydro-Electric System cannot be completed
before the first day of September A. D. 1012, and, therefore, the amount
of- rates, charges, and rentals for the use of water or electric power will
during this present year be nil.
AND, WHEREAS, no money is already charged against the rentals,
rates or charges to be derived from the said Hydro-Electric System.
AND, WHEREAS, the estimated amount of rentals, rates, and charges
that will be derived from the said Hydro-Electric System after the same
is completed is the sum of .1*72,500.00.
AND, WHEREAS, the sum necessary for the payment of interest
during the currency of the debentures to be issued hereunder is $24,750.00
per annum.
AND, WHEREAS, the sum to be set aside annually to discharge the
debt, authorized to be created by this bylaw, is the sum of $4,108.54 per
annum, and it is proposed to set aside such annual sum by depositing the
same annually at interest iu a chartered bank or trust company in Canada
or by the purchase of the debentures of the said City at a juice not above
par or by both such modes of investment, or by Investing the same in any
manner which a Municipal corporation may legally adopt.
AND, WHEREAS, the amount to he raised annually for the payment
of the said debt is arrived at by estimating the interest to be derived from
the mnnual investment of such sum at the rate of three and a half per
eent (3)$%) per annum.
AND, WHEREAS, the total amount of rateable land and improvements
in the City of Prince Rupert, according to the last revised assessment roll
is ns follows:—
Land, $12,228,041.00;  improvements, $407,00,5.
AND, WHEREAS, it is estimated that after the said Hydro-Electric
System is completed, the rentals, rates, and charges to be collected therefrom will be sufficient to pay the annual amounts required to pay thq
interest and sinking fund required to be raised under this Bylaw, and that
there will be no deficiency to lie made up under the guarantee to he given
by the City as hereinafter provided.
AND, WHEREAS, the Cily intends to issue debentures for the amount
of the said debt, being $550,000, by the sale of which to realize the moneys
necessary for the said purposes, the said debentures lo extent for a period
of fifty (50) years and to be secured upon the rentals, rates, and charges

Women's Rights
*
•*•••*••**•*-** *"*•-**■******•*
Forty-two buxom lassies from Lancashire jumped merrily out of a
Northern express arriving early yesterday afternoon at Elision Station,
says the London Standard. They
were all pit-brow girls, and they had
come to London as a deputation to
their home secretary to protest
against their means of livelihood heing taken away from them. If Sir
Arthur .Markham's amendment to the
employment douses of the Coal
Mines Bill becomes law—and it lias
been carried in ccjmmittee—these
these healty, vigorous young women
from Wigan and the suroiinding colliery districts and 5,000 more of
fSeir sisters will lose what they evidently consider to be pleasant and
profitable employment, for there will
be no more work for girls at the
coalpits.
With the bevy of pit-brow lassies
came Alderman Samuel Wood (mayor of Wigan) and Mrs. Wood, attended by the corporation beadle,
in blue and gold; also the Rev. T.
F. B. Twemlow, vicar of Abram, and
one or two colliery owners and others
interested in the employment crisis.
On the platform with beaming smiles
of welcome were Stephen Walsh,
M. P., and J. E. Sutton, one of Manchester's Labor members. Chars-a-
bancs were in waiting, and the girls
were driven to a hotel near Charing
Cross Station for a brief rest, having enaten a substantial luncheon
in the train.
They soon emerged, and were
taken to see the sights in the vicinity, listening with eager interest to
stray bits of description of the lions
in Trafalgar Square, the Admiralty
Arch, and the statue of King Charles.
Thence they gradually made their
way to the House of Commons,
where they were shown into committee room No. 10 and into the presence of Mr. Churchill and Air. Mas-
terman. Sir Arthur Markham, M P.,
was also seated on the platform
seats, wliich gives the committee
room much of the apearance of a
small court of law.
Several of the girls during the halt
at the hotel had taken from their
handbags the shawls and aprons
which they wear when working at
the pit-brow, and a double row of
girls thus attired faced Mr. Churchill. Some had black hoods and jackets, with coarse brown Holland
aprons, and others grew shawls completely covering their heads, showing how they keep the coal dust from
their hair.
After listening to the deputation,
which was introduced by Mr. Har-
mood-Banner, Mr. Masterson said
that the chief impression left on the
mind by the arguments was the necessity for votes for women, because
this seemed to him essentially a
question women should decide for
themselves. He thought that if they
bad an occupation for women which
was acknowledged not to be unhealthy or dangerous or immoral, a
man's parliament, elected by men,
had no right to prohibit women from
that occupation, whatever regulations might be imposed for the protection of the women In it. Mr.
Churchill had authorized him to say
that, so far as the government was
concerned, when the bill came before
the parliament they would attempt
to oppose the admendment wliich had
been carried, although they might
offer certain regulations as to the
work. The chief advice he could give
the deputation was this: That between now and the time when the
discussion of the Coal Mines Bill
came on in parliament—it might not
be for some months—they should
convince members of parliament that
the government anion was the right
action in the matter, and Invite them
to come and see the women working in Lancashire as he had done.
"We will now lake tea on the Terrace," announced Mr. Ilnniiood-Han-
ner, after the ministers had discussed the girls, and booh there was a
clattering of clogs on the ringstones
of the House. The fashionably
dressed ladles, wives and sisters of
members looked sotnewhnt astonished at tlie unexpected addition to their
afternoon party, But there was no
shyness on the part of the girls from
Lancashire. On the contrary, they
acted as If hobnobbing with members
of parliament was quite the usual
thing with them, and made themselves quite at home on the Terrace.
Mr. Neville arrived with a shawled
pit-girl on each arm, and Stephen
Walsh was equally charmingly enl
ceimbered. Other statesmen were
just as friendly, and when great
platefuls of cake and buns had been
consumed a procession of members
of parliament and Lancashire lassies
was formed to look round the
Houses.
Not a hit awed were the girls by
the gilded splendors of the House of
Lords; more than one of (hem tested

the softness of the Wollsack. In the
robing room they took turns in sitting on the royal throne. Much interest was evinced in the many historical paintings explained to them
by their friends of the Lower House,
and they all halted for critical Inspection of Henry VIII's six queens
in the chamber immediately behind
the thrones.
All the girls expressed their perfect satisfaction with the work they
had to perform, and compared it favorably with former employment in
cotton mil's and elsewhere. Their
hours are from 6 to 8:30, then from
9 to 12:30, continuing from 1 to 3—
eight hours in all.
"Very few of us are really tired
when we leave off in the afternoon,"
said one of the girls, "and if we are,
a wash and a cup of tea pulls us
all right again. Some of us are
quite equal toearning a shilling or
two more at charing work In the
evening."
Indignation prevails among the
300 Cumberland pithead girls because of theh parliamentary committee's decision to abo'ish female labor
in mines, which is denounced as unjust and grandmotherly. In Cumberland pit work is preferred to domestic service, because of the eight-
hour day, and because of the spirit
of comradeship which prevails among
the girls. Physically they rank
among the best of the womanhood
of the country, not tall, but strongly
made. They earn about ten shillings
a week, their work in Cumberland
being confined to removing the metal
from the coal, and they have no
heavy tubs to move. They are accepted as members of the Cumberland .Miners' Association at half-
rates, and many marry pit-men.

**************************
Perhaps the best posted man In
Canada on happenings and matters
contemporary, from high finance to
the prospects of the season's what
crop, Is F. W. Peters, assistant to
Sir William Whyte, vice president of
the C. P. R., says the News-Advertiser referring to his arrival In Vancouver.
If there Is a subject of Interest to
Canadians that Mr. Peters cannot
discuss more interestingly than anyone else II is not contained in the
Encyclopaedia Britannlca. Undoubtedly the moBt timely and welcome news Is the fact that splendid
reports of the Western Canada crops
are coming in and that the weather
Is Ideal for ripening. It was also
pointed out that gold coin to the
\alue of $11,lino,000 has already
beeu withdrawn from the sub-treasury at New  York this year for ship
ment to Canada chiefly for crop moving needs.
"Canada is more prosperous than
ever and our trade returns for the
quarter ending June 30, 1911, were
$180,000,000, an increase of over
$9,000,000 compared with April,
May and June of last year," said Mr.
Peters. "The imports totalled over
$121 000,000, nearly $12,000,000
more than in the same period of
1910.
"There has also been a marked
increase in the building trade of Canada of fully 30 per cent for the first
six months of this year, and it is
reported that permits totalled over
$11,000,000, the city of Toronto still
leading.
"As another indication of this
country's unprecedented prosperity
may also be cited the fact that the
total immigration into Canada for
June alone was 40,009, compared
with 34,582 in- the same month of
last year. Of these new settlers 27,-
974 came in at ocean ports and 12,-
035 from the United States.
"But this is not the only indication of the undisputed fact that our
country is doing better than ever.
The lumber used in furniture and car
manufacture in Canada for 1910 was
valued at almost $3,000,000, and 65
per cent of that was native wood.
"In the industrial line we are doing equally well, for I understand
that a $1,000,000 sugar beet factory
is to be erected at Strathmore, Alta.,
and the shipments of wheat alone'
through the Lachine Canal alone In
July show an Increase of 400,000
bushels over the same period last
year.
"Custom receipts of the Dominion
have also increased materially, and
the receipts for July amounted to
over $6,500,000, as compared with
$5,500,000 in July, 1910.
"Canadian real estate is also receiving higher valuations than ever,
and the taxable property In Montreal, for instance, Is valued at $500,-
000,000, an advance of $70,000,00
since last year.
"But to speak of Switzerland going
to Canada for cattle is like carrying
coals to Newcastle or olws to Athens,
but such Is nevertheless the fact, at
least so far as Switzerland and Canadian cattle are concerned, for the
little European repbuic Is actually
importing cattle for slaughter, and
theh first batch of 200 beeves arrived at Berne on August 2 by way
of France.
"Agriculture Is also likely to progress more rapidly than ever, for a
ne wvariety of wheat, which has just
been cut at the Brandon (Manitoba)
Experimental Farm, took only 95
days In fruition."

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Friday, September 1, 1911.
EXPLAINED BY-LAWS
(Continued  From  Page One)
to doubly ass'ire the people and to
satisfy them that Colonel Davis was
correct In his figure. The result of
this was that tlie proposal of Colonel
Davis was endorsed to a very full
extent. Mr. Thomson also asked If
he would report upon the electric
proposition, which it was agreed lie
Should,
it had been suggested by some in
the city that the two schemes should
be separated. The figures of Colonel
Jinvis showed that to separate the
two Bchemes, that of the water and
of the electric power, would mean
an expenditure of $68,000 more tiian
to unite them,
Company's Profits
Tbe mayor said that it was said
that the city could not make this
electric proposition pay. He would
like I" know why. Heading from an
advertisement wliich appeared in the
Toronto Globe last June setting
forth what the Prince Itupert Hydro-
Electric Company was preparing to
do. It was set forth that the revenues of the company would he such
as to ensure 12 per cent upon certain stock on a very large issue. If
the company could make that out of
the proposition why should it not
pay the city to put in a power proposition In conjunction with the water
supply as proposed?
It was set forth in the opposition
to the city's scheme that the company offered power for $2S a horse
power. If that were so it was news
to the council. No such proposition
had been made  to the council.
The lowest rate that the company
had made to the city was $30 per
horse power. Before that was attained at least 4,000 horse power
would have to be used. Mr. Thomson had showed him that under the
agreement proposed while the city
might he using on the basis of 4,000
horse power for nearly the whole
year yet on some particular day the
load might rise to nearly double that
and if maintained for twenty minutes
at the high rate that would be the
power that would be charged up
against the city. The agreement was
thus not in shape to enter Into.
City's Power
With respect to the city's own power proposition, the figures of Mr.
Thomson showed that the cost after
the entire distribution of it would
be only $37.60. Under the arrangement proposed with the Prince Rupert Hydro-Electric the price would
apply to the power delivered at the
city gates, and the cost of distribution would be added.
The council was not quarrelling
with Mr. Brutinel. What they had
said to Mr. Brutinel had been that If
the people of Prince Rupert were
willing to back up the council they
will install their own city system.
' They proposed to develop their
own power to the extent to which
it would go. They would also look
after the distribution in the cily,
When the city's power was developed
to the full the city would be willing
to buy from the company on a just
and equitable basis the power to be
delivered at the city gate. This matter was being looked at from the
city's standpoint. The council wanted to encourage all the enterprises
possible to come Into the city. It
did not want to be Interfered with
h developing its own proposition.
Opposition to Plans
Mr. Brutinel had acted very gentlemanly In his negotiations with the
council; but there were others who
were showing a very strong opposition to the proposition of the city
emanating from Interests connected
wi*h the Prince Rupert Hydro-Electric Company.
He had long been in favor of municipal ownership of public utilities.
He was stii In favor of It, and pro-
pee-, -l to give Prince Ruperl an op-
portunity tee control  these,
as i tin- expenditure of the money, the greal bulk of that would be
don.- by contract labor, it would
be necessary to clear away the timber en the shores of Lake Wood-
worth, where 'lie- water would lee
damned up. li was proposed to clear
this by station work, opening the
tenders in the council and awarding
then: in the open. Tlie ditches for
the pipe would be let hy station work
in th i same way as the clearing.
1 ere would be some day labor also.
Thfy could rest assured that there
would he no large contrcacts, however.
Light Cost
He had taken tbe trouble to figure out the cost to property owners
under this. The entire cost of the
two schemes, the water and the electric propositions, would represent
3% mills on the dollar on the present assessment of the city. This
WO ild provide for interest and sinking   fund.     Even   if   there   was   no
there could be a charge of only  75
I cents a year for interest and sinking
•fund; on a $500 lot it would amount
to $1.87 a year, while on a $1,000 lot
'■ it   would be $3.75.
The debt was to be a charge upon
j the rates collected. The profits In
I the early years could not be expect-
I ed to be large. The rates given were
I those if no profit were made at all.
Healing with tlie effect ujion the
borrowing power of the city, Mr.
.Manson showed that the effect of
[this loan with that already incurred
by the city would still leave theh city
wiih a borrowing power of $800,00
on its present assessment..
Mr. Brutinel Speaks
U. Brutinel ol' the Prince Rupert
Hydro-Electric Company, who had
been Invited by the mayor to speak,
followed, explaining his position. Mr.
Brutinel said that he would assure
them his company was nol behind
any opposition which was heing
Btlrred up against either bylaw. "I
am a gentleman," said he. "Mr.
.Manson vouches for that." (Laughter.) He tell sure Mr, Manson
thought that some of tlie opposition
stirred up was from his company.
He could assure him that he was not
endeavoring to hurt the bylaw.
Referring to the prospectus which
the mayor had quoted from, Mr. Brutinel said that, his company had certainly attracted attention to Prince
Rupert, it was showing the world
that Prince Rupert was on the map
and was attracting Investments here.
Mr. Brutinel said his company
was not in any sense "creeping in
tiie dark."
He felt lhat his company would
be sought after to enter the city, it
was the great developer of a city to
have a strong electric company supplying power.
His company expected to make
12 per cent on its investment, but
only when 15,000 Tiorse power was
developed. The company was today
spending $5,000 a month without
any returns.
Labor Speaker
J. B. King, having embraced the
opportunity to speak, took exception
to the bylaws on the ground that the
workers were not given a chance to
say how this money was to be expended—how many hours they were
to work, how fast they were to work,
and what pay they were to receive.
He spoke with fluency upon the economic situation as it exists today,
using the arguments usually used by
advocates of socialism.
Mr. Ross Gives Views
Mr. Ross, superintendent of the
electric lighting in Seattle, who had
been asked to visit the city and present the practical side of the question, was the next speaker.
Mr, Ross in opening dwelt at some
length on the possibilities of this
country. He had travelled across
the northern part of the province
thirteen years ago, and depicted the
wealth of that country. This was
going to be one of the principal cities
on the Coast on account of the resources back of it and its transportation advantages. He was always in
favor of municipa' ownership, He
had fought for It for eight years. He
believed docks, lighting and power
should be owned by the city. Railways he now believed should be owned by the public. He believed that
a city should develop Its own power.
If It needed more than it could produce, it should buy from a company, or anyone who could In quantity, but he would insist upon getting
it at a right price.
Ho is against a private company
coming into any city that could produce its own power. The money to
develop a company's undertaking
was built up upon the credit of the
city.
Seattle's Experience
He told of the fight put up against
a public owned plant In Seattle by
private companies.. In Seattle the
plant had been put In by day labor
largely, They operated upon day labor. The electric light was paying
the whole of the Interest on the bond
Issue of the city,
\e first, while, the consumption
vies small, the plant went behind. In
1906, the profll above operating expanses was $28,406; In 1907, il was
$69,000; In 1908, it fras $130,928;
iniin 1909, it «as $•;4•;,.".■;^,; In toio,
it was $360,000; in 1911, it was
$401,000; and in 1912, it was estimated it would be $960,000, with
perhaps $400,000 or $450,000 for
operating expenses. The proposition
of public owned light in the citj
of Seattle was popular.
Seattle has always voted the clt)
light bonds, although they turned
down many other bonds. The street
lighting wns about four times what
It  was when  they starled.
He advised never allowing any
company to come within the gates of
the city.
These companies were all right If
they sold In bulk at the city gates,
but   the   city   should   look   after   Its
town of 4,300 but they were deciding a question for a city. It was a
case of whether the city would control its supply and reap the benefits or allow some one else to do it.
Other Speakers
Aid. Smith spoke briefly. He said
that he was in favor of station work
as far as possible. In spite of what
had been said as to Foley, Welch &
Stewart's woi;k, he could say that
that company paid at the rate of
$3 a day. Station men in nearly
every instance made higher wages
than that. The vote of Saturday
was of Importance to the city. If
the city plant was installed the city
would he in a position to control the
rates, which was very Important.
Aid. Hllditch said that the G. T. P.
agreement wns the best that had ever
been entered! nto. It was better than
the agreement proposed hy last year's
council. The agreement was fair and
equitable to both  sides.
The hydro-electric seiiemc was in
the minds of the council of 1910. in
1910 Mr. Brutinel had come with
the Intention of forcing his way In.
The council of 1910 refused to allow
this. Mr. Brutinel came in a different mood now. He was glad to
know this. He would like to see
the company come in and deliver its
power at the city boundaries. If
they did not protect this electric
power franchise they would never
protect the street car franchise.
Aid. Newton spoke in favor of the
bylaw.
Aid. Clayton spoke very briefly
owing to the late hour. He was
hearitly in accord with the bylaws.
Aid. Douglas brought the meeting
to a dose by reading his views on
the subject, in which he stood for
the principle of public ownership and
against any "frame-up," which would
arouse his anger to such an extent
that he would roar so that he would
be heard from the centre to the cir-
cumference of the city.

Kitsunikahim Application
On the request of Messrs. Ehy, et
al., the erection by the G. T. P. of
a station at Kltsumkalum has been
refused.
The refusal as handed down states
that owing to the location of Kit-
siiinkaliini it would be necessary to
have the yard on a four-tenths of
one per cent grade or else to raise
the bridge over the Kltsumkalum
River and divert the wagon road to
the Skeena which crosses the railway tracks.

Another application, also refused,
was that of R. O. Jennings, road

(Special Correspondence)
Copper City, August 31.—The wet
season has apparently set in. Early
Sunday morning and again in the
afternoon the heaviest rais of the
summer fell in the Copper River district. At Lakelse Lake the rainfall
was light but a strong south wind
is blowing and rain is likely at any
time with the wind from that quarter.
Bruce Johnson and his party from
the hatchery had considerable work
keeping their "fences" clear owing to
a six inch rise in Williams Creek.
Twice during the night they had to
nspect them and clean out some of
the debris.
The sockeye has not been very
plentiful this season and they cannot take chances on losing a fence.
Mr. Johnson expects to have the
full complement of four to four and
a half million eggs in a little over
two weeks' time safe in the nests
at the Dominion government hatchery on Trout River.
City Clerk Woods and Mrs. Woods
and Mr. and Mrs. Viereck of Prince
Rupert are camping at the south end
of the lake and are having a jolly
time. The fishing is good and the
camp fire gossip is better. One mishap is reported. The camp dog unwittingly jumped into the hot springs

suffering from  the effects of a too
of the date of the election will duly
appear upon the list as a voter. The
statute throws upon the assessor the
duty of making these changes from
time to time, and when the list is
finally complete, which will be in
ample time for the election, it will
be found that the very extraordinary
point, raised in the News editorial is
purely imaginary.
If I may be allowed for a moment
to depart from my own particular
department, I think it is a pity that
newspapers should ma'ke statements
of this description without at all
events taking some pains to ascertain if there Is any foundation whatever for what they say. Fair comment is always right, but the News'
statement is not a comment—it is
simply an incorrect statement. 1
