Aldermen Set Forth Their Views on Methods of Financing This Part of the City's Street Equipment
—Policy Being Framed to Suit
Local Conditions.
Now it is the question of sewers
which is agitating the city council. It
Is felt that these can be most economically put in while the rough grading
of the street is in progress. The sy.-
tem up'on which the money will be
provided for this work must be decided very soon if this is to be i:ne
as the pipe will have to b^ irdered
a little ahead especialy if it is to be
got from the old country. Last night
the question arose rather suddenly
on the recommendation of the streets
committee to purchase 320 feet of
six inch sewer pipe to do some necessary work and also on the recommendation that tenders be called for
pipe for Fraser, and Eighth streets
where the putting in of the sewer,
it was pointed out, would be much
less expensive than later on after the
grading  was  completed.
Aid. Mobley moved thai a engineer be authorized to purchase the
Aid. Pattullo did not care to see
this rule followed of purchasing pipe
without calling for tenders.
Aid. Mobley did not want to see
tbe rule followed all the time, but in
this case It was urgent to get the
pipe at once.
Aid. Hilditch said the idea of the
committee was to get this pipe as It
was felt It would have to be got In
Aid. Lynch said they must get
some of this pipe at a very early
date. The council was up against
the question of sewer pipe.
Aid.  Pattullo thought they might
as well thresh out the whole subject
now.    It would have to be settled.
Government Grunt
Aid. Mobley said that as he understood    It    there    was    sufficient

Prince Rupert This
E. It. Pitzluigb, •). E. Dnlrymple, And
Others Are on Holiday
There has been In the city for a
few days tliis week a distinguished
party of officials of the G. T P. Included in the company were E. H.
Fitzliugh, first vice-president of the
Grand Trunk, who is a director of
the G. T. P., and Mrs. Fitzliugh anil
daughter; J. E. Dalrymple, assistant
freight manager of the G.T.P., Airs.
Dalrymple and family, and Dr. Rior-
dan, chief surgeon to the company.
Accompanying the party were also
A. E. Holt, president of the Crown
Investment company. The parly paid
a visit to the coast almost altogether
as a holiday. Mr. Fitzliugh In fact
admitted that his first trip to Prince
Rupert was made In order to see the
terminal point before it became a
populous cily which seemed to be but
a short time ahead judging by what
he saw.
Capt. Nicholson and wife accompanied the party to Prince Rupert
and here they were taken to points
of Interest by to. C. C. Mehan, general superintendent, and G. A. -McNicholl, division superintendent.
A trip up the line for a distance of
36 miles served to give the officials
a good Idea of the character of work
that was being done In the construction of the line. They were well
pleased with the road and were surprised to find it in such excellent
shape before ballasting had been provided. Mr. Fitzliugh slated that he
had travelled on. lines that, had been
in operation a long time that were In
no better shape than the section over
which he travelled out of Prince Rupert.
The townslte was gone over and by
launch the waters of the harbor were

money   from  the  government  grant
to do this work.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know If
this was still available.
Aid. Mobley thought that the
money might be Included In that, but
lie thought the money would be available.
Aid. Pattullo did not think that
this was the case. He was inclined
to think the government had not
charged this up but he did not know
that the funds would be available after October 1.
His worship thought that the government had not Included this sewer
work in the account rendered. The
accounts were too light for that.
Discussing the general question
of sewers, Aid.  Barrow said he had
Aid. Bui row's Researches
I made a study of the report of the
| city engineer of a Massachusetts city.
I This report, by Mr.  Snow,  hit upon
t a plan of getting a rental from the
j sewer somewhat in proportion to the
| use made of it.   Ti.e rental ws , based
i on Hired classes, those who used the
| sewer, those whose property abutted
on it and thus had their property increased 'n value, and the genera] public wiirFM Interest lay in th? health
resulting.    Th? user should pay ''.alf
the cost  accord in?  to  thi*;  plan  and
lie was charged 'n proportion la the
water  nc put  into It  and  that was
as to the water used.    There was a
rebate of twenty per cent in tin; case
"f tl.ofe using water for iawns and
7l i or i.tnt In the case of manufactories   where   it   vas  felt   the  water
was nol  v^sed ri the proportion set
For those whose property abut-
'"(1  on   the  sewer pne  quarter was
chnrvea which was on the basis of
six-tenths as to area and tour-tenths
as to irentage     The   general    fund
paid one-quarter of    the    cost.    He
would be glad if the aldermen wished'to read this as he felt some good
ideas could be got.
Aid. Hilditch felt they were giving
more attention to tliis sewer question
than was given to the grading question. He would like to see that a
man who built his home should use
the sewer on about the same basis
as tiie man who did not improve his
lot. lie would charge only about
sufficient to pay a scavenger in addition on the user. lie thought that
this should not be settled In a hurry.
Aid. Lynch's Views
Aid. Lynch stated his views. He
felt it would be best to construct the j
sewers from the general funds The \
fact that there was a sewer system
ni part of tiie city complicated the
matter. These people felt that they
had paid for It from the fact that the
sewers were there when they bought
the property. In Ixing the rentals
the question came up whtlier the
users should pay the whole cost including interest and sinking funds.
There was the argument that a
sewer increased the value of the unoccupied property. It added to the
value of the property and it was felt
that the whole charge should not be
against the users. Last win'er the
citizens of Prince Rupert considered
propositions for doing work. They
were all on the principle of general
fund. Sewer and water were to he
provided from funds to he borrowed
from the government which would
be returned from general fund. The
statement had been made tbat the
government had given the city of
Prince Rupert $25,000 to provide
sewers. The citizens met and discussed the spending of this. These
citizens and the committee felt that
this was to be spent on the general
fund principle. If that was not the
understanding the few blocks that
got the sewer got an advantage. A
further move was made to provide
for Improvements by borrowing from
the government. It was petitioned
against and upset. The argument
against It was not as to building sewers out of the general fund fut nn
the principle that It was not wise to
expend a large sum under a commission.    While there should  be noth-
At the council meeting on Wednesday evening the statement was made
by Aid. Mobley of the electric light
committee that work was going forward very satisfactorily. The placing of the poles in position might be
started very soon and if nothing un-
forseen came up the lighting system
would he working in good time.
Aid, Hilditch felt that the lighting
sys/em should, like the telephone
system, be self supporting. With a
200 kilowatt machine there could be
10,000 lights provided. He thought
7,500 lights snould be offered for sale
in hotels and private residences and
leave 2,500 lights lor the streets.
The revenue to be derived should pay
for the city lighting and for the sinking fund.
Aid. Lynch wanted s ingestions
from the aldermen.
Aid. Mobley sin ted that Aid. Hilditch had stated just what the committee had in view. The committee
did not know all about this matter.
Any suggestions would be gladly received..
Aid. Hilditch said he had not
known the plans of the committee.
He had, however thought that this
should be the general plan. He had
hoped to get some light over in section seevn where all the "bad people
Aid. Mobley suggested that they
"needed light" there.    (Laughter.)
Aid. Hilditch sugegsted gathering
up the scattered wire which might
serve in making connections.
Aid. Lynch said the electrician had
stated that in view of these wires not
being insulated they would not be
allowed to use it.
Aid. Barrow felt that if the system
was to be self supporting a very fair
rate should be charged. It would be
inadvisable to have auxiliary power
owing to the expense and therefore
there should be no inclination to
hang the committee if something
went wrong.
His worshfp said that In Fernie

the rate was 65 cents a light per
Routine Matters
E. J. Chamberlin wrote that General Superintendent to. C. C. Mehan
had been instructed to have the Inn
Annex moved so as to allow the street
work to proceed. This was received.

on the question as to whether the
plans of the Tsimpsean Light Company relative to the gas mains it was
proposed to put on the streets was
agreeable to the council.

P. Burns & Co., are Shipping Cattle Into
Hazelton for the
Cold Storage Building Will be Commenced Here Next Spring, it

Motion to Call for Tenders for the Work Brings Forth a
Full Discussion of the Relative Merits of Different Systems of Carrying Out
Blake Wilson, of Vancouver, who
is one of tiie most prominent officers
of the P. Burns Company, is in the
city. He has been making arrangements for the ensuring of a supply
of fresh meat at the various camps
of the Foley, Welsh & Stewart contracting'company along the line of
the G. T. P. At present the company
has about 1,000 head of cattle at
Hazelton and are going to ship in
steadily by way of Prince Rupert as
long as it is possible to do so before
winter sets in. Five hundred head
arrived this week to go in by way
of the G. T. P. line to the end of
the road. From there the cattle will
be driven along the right of way.
This fall the cattle will be slaughtered at Hazelton and put in cold
storage for the different camps.
The supplying of the beef to the
camps is a difficult task. Mr. Wilson
says in all his experience in meeting
the demands of various railway contracting firms in Canada and the
United States, the work which they
had to do in meeting the requirements on the western part of the G.
T. P. is the most difficult he has ever
had to deal with. It Is costly and
hard to handle with satisfaction to
the company which he represents.
Speaking of shipments to Prince
Rupft and the trouble with tainted
meat this year, Mr. Wilson says that
the past summer has been the worst
in their experience. The weather has
been unnatural and in consequence
the meat gave them a lot of trouble.
The dryness of the season seemed to
have some effect and the beef, ln
spit of all precautions, became tainted. Next year, he expects, there will
br, pr',>i.ion ra.ide .for cold storage
on the steamers. If there is not the
company will take other means of
overcoming the difficulty.
Probably by spring the P. Burns
Company will commence work on
tnelr cold storage building on the
waterfront. They have a lease of the
lot nearer Centre street alongside of
the Kelly building, and on this site
will erect a building. At flrst it will
not be very extensive, btiug adapted
only to the demands of the trade.
Later the cold storage plant will be j
a large one to meet the trade of the i
whole  north.
The council has decided to Btart I would not be business sections would

remembered that about two weeks plank road way would do these parts
ago  the council  decided  to proceed ] outside the central part.    He would
oppose the motion on this ground,
and not because he did not want to
see Third avenue graded.
Work Made Value
Aid. Lynch argued that the work
could never be done as cheaply as
now in tiie section below the junction and about Biggar Place. The
people who owned property there desired the improvements. They were
not children and felt that the work
should be done. The cost would only
be about $250 to do this Improvement work. The lots were valueless
without this work but with the grading done the lots went up to $1,000,
$1,500, and even $5,000 a lot. These
people wanted the money expended
in order to -make their lots' valuable.
In Seattle he had seen a man pay
$900 assessment which sold a lot
which cost $5,000 for $40,000. Unless the grading were done now the
with the whole work remaining in
section one under the local Improvement policy it had adopted. The engineer reported on the work not now
under way and all was ready for the
calling of tenders. The advertising
was ready and by this time the tenders would have been in hand. But
at the very meeting when this was
to have been done a letter was received from the Bank of Montreal,
which had undertaken to finance the
proposition, withholding the funds,
temporary at least. A halt had to be
called but with the bank's decision
to advance further funds to the extent of $90,000, it has been decided
to spend the money on Third avenue.
At AVednesday evening's meeting
the matter came up when a very free
discussion followed on the whole subject in which Aid. Hilditch put up a
light for the street work being done
on the principle of borrowing money j property was kept reduced In price.

so expending it.
Aid. Lynch moved that tenders be

Turner was formerly a resident of

Aid. Mclntyre seconded the motion.
Aid. Hildltch Objects
Aid. Hilditch called attention to}
the fact that there was no report
from the committee with respect to
stopping work on the section below j
the junction of First, Second andj
Third avenues. He felt that it would \
be impossible to collect from some'
of these parts in section one where i
work was not done.
If the whole work cost $400,000
it would represent $44,000 that
would be required each year. He
went into the whole subject stating
that with a total assessment of $7,-
157,200 in the. section there was
about $4,000,000 of the G. T. P. tc
be deducted, 'tills left about $3,157,-
500 of an assessment upon which tr
collect and with $460,050 of G. T. P
property upon which there could ba
a levy the total was about $3,600,-
000. The assessment necessary to
meet the half to be salsed on tho assessed value of the property was put
at six mills on the dollar,. With about
1,600 lots in the section the rate
which would have to be ni"t on frontage would he calculated represent
about 1.3 % mills. This would amount
to n tax of 1fl'v; mills which joined
with the fifteen mills for geneva! a:-
cessment would constitute a tax ol
34-}.i   mills  which  was  a  heavy  tax
meet the cost of the work under all
the contracts. He favored going
right ahead.
Aid. Pattullo supported the motion
The council should go ahead. This
policy was decided upon after a long
discussion and they should go ahead
with it.

Special reference was made in the
grand jury presentment at the Victoria assizes, handed lo Chief Justice
Hunter to the death of Chester
Young through the accidental discharge of a rife in the hands of C.
Wood, and it was recommended that
a regulation be introduced making
it obligatory on hunters to procure a
license and undergo an examination
in their knowledge of firearms. The
presentment read in part as follows:
Your grand jury deplore that as a
result of persons being allowed to
roam the woods in pursuit of game
who are totally unfit to handle firearms, an unfortunate accident occurred on September 15th which resulted in the killing of one Chester
Young. We would humbly recommend that a permit he taken out by
all persons wishing to carry firearms,
the age limit to be fixed at 16 years,
and that before such permit be issued
the applicant pass an examination
such as would prove his ability to
handle firearms judiciously, and that
loaded firearms shall not be carried
in public conveyances or in places
much frequented by the public.
Your grand jury has, after careful
and exhaustive consideration of the
wounding of Mr. E. D. Allen, on November 14, 1909, by a shot from a
firearm, and after having examined
a number of witnesses who, according to gossip and rumor, were in
possesion of evidence of an important character bearing on this subject,
and have found them groundless,
have arrived at the conclusion that
the provincial police department have
diligently endeavored to ascertain the
person responsible for having fired
the shot and that they are still continuing their efforts in that direction.
As a last resort we can only suggest that a reward should be offered.

A description of the mechanism of
the London Money market in its relation to the Bank of England, the
joint stock banks, and the discount
houses has just been made public by
the National Monetary Commission
in a monograph on "The English
banking system." by Hartley Withers, financial editor of the London
Times, says the Toronto Financial
Post. Mr. Withers begins with an
enumeration of the distinctive functions of the Bank of England, which
he declares to be as follows:
1. Banker to the British Government.
2. Banker to tbe joint stock and
private banks.
3. (a) Sole possessor of the right
to issue notes which are legal tender
in England; (b) sole possessor
among joint stock banks with an
office in London, of the right to issue notes at all.
4. Provider of emergency currency.
5. Keeper of the gold reserve for
British banking.
6. Keeper of the gold reserve,
which is most readily available for
the purposes of international banking.
The Ranks' Ranker
These various functions fit into
and supplement one another, and
though their diversity is sometimes
pointed to as throwing too much re-
sponsibilty onto one institution, it, in
fact, enables the bank to carry out
its duties with extraordinary ease
and with the least possible disturbance to the financial community. By
the fact that it keeps the balancls of
the other banks, the Bank of England is enabled to conduct the payment of the Interest on the British
debt largely by transfers in its books.
By the fact that It keeps the balance
of the government and has the monopoly of the legal tender note issue,
the bank has a great prestige to the
eyes of the general public, which it
communicates to the othe»»*anks
which bank with it.
Value of Credit in Bank
A credit in the books of the Bank
of England has come to be regarded
as just as good as so much gold, and
the other banks, with one exception,
habitually state their "cash in hand
and at the Bank of England" as one
item in their balance sheets, as if
there were no difference between an
actual holding of gold or legal tender and a balance at the Bank of
England. It thus follows, at times
when an increase of currency is desirable, that it can be expanded by
an increase in the balances of the
other banks at the Bank of England,
since they thus become possessed of
more cash to be used as the basis of
credit; for currency in England
chiefly consists of checks, and customers who apply to the banks for
accommodation, by way of discount
or advance, use it by drawing a
check, which Is passed on and so
creates a deposit, and expansion of
currency thus consists chiefly In
expansion of banking deposits. This
expansion Is only limited by the proportion between deposits and cash
which the banks think fit to keep,
and as long as they can increase
their cash by increasing their credit
in the Bank of England's books the
creation of currency can proceed
without let or hindrance.
International Position
Taking up the subject ot the position of the Bank of England in the
Internallonal market, it is declared
that London Is the only European
centre which is always prepared to
honor Its drafts In gold immediately
and to any extent, The Bank of
France has the right lo make pay-
ments In silver, and uses it by often
charging a premium on gold sufficient to check any demand for it; and
in other centres measures are taken
which make apparently free conver-
tlblllty of credit instruments optional
al the choice of tbe central bank.
C tequently the Bank of England
lias to be prepared to meet demands
nn ii al any time from abroad, based
11 credits given to foreigners by the
English banking community, and it
has thus lo observe the signs of
■••'•■ atl in all : rts of the
>■ 11 lil and to regulate the pi Ice of
money in London so that the ex-
: 1 nol be allowed to be-
ttdvsi ' to a denger-
ous point. The difficulties of this
task are increased by tho extent to
which the English banking community works Independently of it, by
accepting and discounting finance
paper, and giving foreigners credits
at rates which encourage their furth-
erf creation. For the low and wholly unregulated proportion of cash to
liabilities on which English banking
works enables the othe." banks to
multiply credits ultimately based on
the Bank of England's reserve, leaving the responsibility for maintaining the reserves to the bank. This
it does by raising its rate when
necessary, and so, if It has control
of the market and its rate is "effective," raising the general level of
money rates in London.
How the Bank Controls Rate
When its rate is not effective, the
Bank of England finds itself obliged
to intervene In the outer money market—consisting of the otlier banks
and their customers—and control the
rates current In It. This It does by
borrowing some of the floating funds
in this market, so lessening their
supply and forcing up the price of
money. By means of this borowing
it diminishes the balances kept with
it by the other banks either directly
or indirectly—directly if it borrows
from them, indirectly If it borrows
from their customers, who hand the
advance to it in the shape of a check
on them. The result is that so much
of the "cash at the Bank of England," which the English banking
community uses as part of Its basis
of credit, is wiped out, money—
which in London generally means
the price at which the bankers are
prepared to lend for a day or for a
short period to the discount houses—
becomes dearer, the market rate of
discount consequently tends to advance, the foreign exchanges move
In favor of London, and the tide of
gold sets in the direction of the Bank
of England's vaults, and It is enabled
to replenish its reserve or check the
drain upon It.
In summing up the relation of the
bank to the English money market
and to the international money market, it is declared by Mr. Withers
that the prestige which makes a
credit in its books as good as gold
enables the banking community to
expand credits and make check currency as long as it is prepared to lend
credit. At the end of the half year
it is sometimes applied to for fresh
credits to the extent of over twenty
millions sterling, chiefly in the form
of advances for a few days. On one
side of Its account its holding of
securities is expanded by this amount

and on the other its liability on deposits Is similarly swollen. At the
end of 1902, the last occasion when
the bank's weekly return was made
up on December 31, and so showed
the full extent of the extra credit
provided by It at the end of the year,
the other securities rose from £27,-
647,000 on December 17 to £47,736,-
000 on December 31. The other deposits at the same time rose from
£36,653,000 to £55,259,000, and this
increase In the basis of credit was
perhaps used by the other banks for
the provision of five to ten times as
much accommodation for their customers. A week later the other securities had declined to £29,625,000
and the other deposits to £41,073,000
though re-enforced in the meantime
by the payment of government dividends. The emergency credit had
been wiped out, when no longer re-
ouired by the simple process of repayment to tie Bank of England 0'
the sums borrowed from it; and the
bank's proportion of cash to liabilities, which 'had fallen to 28 per cent
on December 31, had risen to 38 3-8
per cent.

The interruption of the vacation
of Lloyd-George, chancellor of the
exchequer, in order to be minister
in attendance on the king at Balmoral, is one of the curious little
ironies and surprises of present day
political life, says T. P. O'Connor in
the Chicago Tribune.
When Lloyd-George brought In his
budget he became the most hated
man in England among the upper
classes. He attacked what had up
to then been regarded by the peers
as the ark of the covenant which
nobody dared touch. As everybody
who has studied English life knows,
land represents in England not merely its pecuniary value—which as a
matter of fact is small—two per cent
being regarded as an excellent return for money invested In land—
but because it gives so much social
When Lloyd-George made his attack on the land through the land
taxes of his budget he roused the
fierciest hatred that has been directed
against a politician in all the long
years since Gladstone first proposed
home rule. What made this attack
on the feudal class tbe more exasperating was that It all came from a
man whom these exalted personages
regarded as beneath contempt.
A Matter of Distinction
With us the distinction still persists between the two branches of
the legal profession, and the attorney is still socially as well as professionally in a lower place than the
barrister. To call a man an attorney
Is almost to insult him, solicitor being the more regular and more polite way. When, therefore, the peer
called Lloyd-George a little Welsh
attorney he had poured out on him
the last possible word of contumely
and contempt. I give this as a specimen merely of the kind of language
and the kind of feeling which Lloyd-
George's budget, provoked among
the uper classes in England. With
my own eyes I have seen much greater proofs of the vehemence of this
When I was taking a little tour
with him a few months ago in Italy
I could not help bearing the insulting observations that some travelling
Englishmen uttered as Lloyd-George
passed them. I have seen them shake
their sticks at his carriage as it
passed, and he has had repeated to
him, to his great amusement, the
hopes expressed by some tourists
when he went out In a boat on the
Lake of Como that he might find a
grave in the deepest spot in its
capricious waters.
In Favor With King
All this will make you realize better the shock of horror and surprise
with which tills aristocracy now sees
Lloyd-George called with especial
favor to the side of the sovereign. It
it but one of many proofs of what
is already known on the inside, that
of all his present ministers his majesty likes Lloyd-George the best. It
was not so with the late king, his
special favorite was Haldane, the war
minister,  largely,  it   was  supposed,
man's essentially Celtic makeup.
I should add that this friendship
between the king and Lloyd-George
has not been of benefit on one side
only. It certainly does send Lloyd-
George stock up a good deal, especially in the social world—for which,
to do him justice, Lloyd-George cares
little—but, on the other hand, Lloyd-
George has done the king a great
deal of service as well.
Carried Civil List
It was the business of Lloyd-
George as chancelor of the exchequer
to carry the civil list bill—in other
words, the salary and allowance of
royalty—through the house of commons, and that was by no means an
easy task. The labor members were
watchful critics; there was a certain
group of militant radicals, and there
might easily have been some risks.
This was especially the case with
one new and rather startling proposal of the new civil list, namely,
that the king should be exempted
from the payment of income tax.
The proposal, I think myself, could
be defended, for it does seem ridiculous for the state to give a certain
income to its chief and then take a
portion of it away with another hand,
but anyhow it was a novel proposition and it was only the daring courage, the adroitness, and the strong
position as a radical leader which
Lloyd-George holds that enabled
such a provision to be carried
through with apparently no serious
opopsition. The king would have
been a foolish man if he did not
recognize the valuable service which
Lloyd-George did to him in this
This is one of the reasons why the
king has gone out of his way to manifest to the public the high regard in
which he holds Lloyd-George, and
this is the reason why Lloyd-George,
wno is never so hapy as when he is
scampering over the continent in a
motor car, has had to return to England long before he intended.
Typical Englishman
It is the unexpected success of
Lloyd-George In winning favor ln
quarters where he was expected to be
hated and distrusted that brings into
more relief his great difference in
character from one of his colleagues
who alone among the cabinet minis-
ters has been making much ol a show
during the recess.
Sir Edward Grey cakes almost as
much pains to incite indifference, '.t
not hostility, among the ranks of his
own party as Lloyd-George takes to
make himself beloved. Grey might
well be taken by painter, sculpter,
or novelist ns the embodiment both
j physically and morally of what may
be called the "typical Englishman"
—at least, as he appears to those
who  are  not  English.
The long, thin, hatchet-shaped
face almost without any expression
—the cold, shy, blue eyes that seem
to evade any notice, tbe frigidly self-
restrained voice and language when
a special obligation on ministers to
attend divisions.
Appears in Divisions
The ministers, all told, big and little, amount to between thirty and
forty members of the house, and it
ill at once be seen that an important factor they must make in all the
divisions, especially as often the
whole fate of a ministry may depend
on half a dozen votes—sometimes
even on two or three.
But if he has to appear in the division lobby he gets out of it as soon
as he can. I heard a radical the
other day describe Grey as rushing
through the division lobby even when
it is crowded with members of his
own party as though it were an "infected sewer."
When Asquith disappears, which
of these two different men will get
to the top—the supple, pleasant mannered plebeian from Wales or this
cold, haughty, reserved, high born
Englishman with the hatchet face,
the cold eye, and the reserved manner? Who can tell? Chance has the
final word in the destinies of all
men, but especially of the men who
ire fighting for power.
because Haldane, like himself, could |lle speaks, the coldly correct impres-
speak German as well as English.
And yet, even with the late king,
Lloyd-George was something of a
favorite. Lloyd-George certainly
always got on well with King Edward
I have heard him speak with great
admiration of the way in which King
Edwavd managed to attract the good
will of everybody who approached
him, and he put this down to the
king's remarkably beautiful manners.
On that point everybody who got
In contact with King Edward was
agreed. I know a doctor who, by
the way, was sent for no more when
he told the king that he must smoke
less—this was not the kind of advice
sion he always suggests, the appearance of perfect equanimity and
phlegm under which there is often
strong feeling—all these things about
the man would mark him as an Englishman if you met him among scores
of other men in any part of the
Grey Modest Man
As a matter of fact, I believe Sir
Edward Grey is a very modest, simple, and rather shy man. He is also
by temperament a very lonely man.
He had only one close companion in
his whole life, and that was his wife.
She was taken away from him suddenly,   tragically,   without   warning,

Sir Thomas V. Strong who has
been elected lord mayor of London
without opposition is a temperance
advocate, and enjoys the distinction
of being the first teetotaler chosen
as chief magistrate of the metropolis.
He was born in 1857, and in 1900
married the eldest daughter of the
late James Hartnell.
The lord mayor will be sworn in
on November 8, and the following
day, as usual, will be marked by a
general holiday, and a great pageant.
The lord mayor of London receives
a salary of $50,000 a year and lives
in the famous Mansion House, opposite the Bank of England, the
home of the chief executives of
London since easly in the eighteenth
century. By right of office, the lord
mayor will become a chief butler and
cupbearer to his majesty, and the
lord mayor will play an important
part in the exercises and ceremonies
at London upon the coronation of
King George next June.
In addition to being provided with
a big salary and a mansion, the lord
mayor has many other perquisites.
The municipal government provides
him with gentlemen in waiting, a
purse-bearer, a sword-bearer, a marshal, a chaplain and a personal hangman, the last named job has been
something of a sinecure, but there
was a time when tbe lord mayor had
only to speak the word to provide a
victim for the gentlemanly executioner.
In theory, King George himself
cannot legally enter the city of London without the permission of the
lord mayor, and the same prohibition
applies to all the soldiers of the
British Empire. Theoretically, the
lord mayor of London is about the
most powerful despot to be found in
any civilized land. Actually, he has
less power for good or evil than the
mayor of an average Canadian city.

Tonight the Ladies' Auxiliary of
the Hospital give their first ball. The
function should be well attended as
the object to which the funds will
be devoted is one thai appeals to
every one. In me proper carrying
on of tbe work of a hospital il would
be difficult to find any method of
doing the department done by the
ladies' auxiliaries in anything like
satisfactory way other than by the
Sometimes the Indies' methods of
financing are laughed at. That is
easy to do, but when it comes to dealing with such work as that done by
the auxiliaries to hospitals it must he
acknowledged that men have much
to learn from the women. They are
pre-eminent in that, field and should
not he interfered with. There may
be some energy lost In the undertaking but the results are always successful. All honor therefore must be
paid to the sacrificing work that the
ladies' auxiliaries to various hospitals
have done and it is safe to say that
Prince Rupert's organization will not
be one whit behind the others.
The city council is now grappling
with the subject of sewers and the
policy to be pursued will probably be
settled very soon. The views of the
public should therefore be made
known to the council in order that
the subject may not be disposed of
without sufficient interest being
The sewer installation in Prince
Rupert should not be excessively
high. If a definite policy is decided
upon the sewer lines can be put in
place as the work of street grading
progresses In most of cases. This
will avoid a large expense being
charged up to the sewerage system in
many instances as It wil avoid cuts
and fills. There will be expense added of course where rock cuts have to
be made for the sewer at points
where the street level is gained by a
rock cut. Taken all round the
sewering of the city will not likely
be much costlier than it is in other
cities on  the coast.
In most of places the sewerage is
put in on funds paid out of the general taxation with sewer rentals fixed
to make (he sewers practically pay
for themselves. In Prince Rupert a
different proposition is faced in view
of the fact that so many lots are likely to be held some little time for
speculative purposes and will not be
using the sewer. The council may
Snd it advisable to take some method
of collecting from these lots in some
way proportionate lo the charge
made against the owners of improved lots. The question is one which
has to be decided and the fullest information on tiie subject should be
sought by the council before acting.
Reduced Rates Have Been Promised
For Exhibition at Vancouver
With the success of the first Canadian National Apple Show in \ n-
couver from an exhibition standpoint
now assured there Is every Indication
of a large attendance of visitors from
the entire province and even throughout Hie Dominion. The engagement
of the 48th Highlanders military
band, a leading hand of Canada and
one of ihe world's best musical organizations, has added very much to
tin- attractions of the big show.
The management believes that
every obstacle to the success of the
big undertaking lias now been removed by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company granting a one-way
first class fare tor the round trip
from all points in the Dominion of
Canada, and In addition to that have
granted selling dales in advance of
the regular selling dates to the public, for the benefit of the exhibitors,
thus giving to all exhibitors the same
privileges as granted to the public.
Exhibitors' tickets will be sold on

delighted with the prospects here.
Referring to ihe progress of work
on the western part of the line, Mr.
Fitzliugh stated that his company
were anxious, as anxious as anyone,
to see the track completed at the
earliest moment. Lack of labor, lie
assured his interviewer was the only
cause of delay. The company want-
ad to see the task completed just as
lulckly as it could be done, bu! with
thi obstacles in the way of labor ruling them, the public would have to
be patient. The public sometimes for-
-)t what an undertaking this was,
he added. They were building the
first really transcontinental line without coupling up any old sections.
When it was contemplated what that
meant one realized the immense
character of the work in hand.

On account of reports that some

exercising great vigilance.

maxims have been posted in the

and are ready to check any attempted
invasion of Lisbon.
Up to the present, however, the
government has received no advices
of risings.

The New President
The most interesting man in Portugal is the new president Senior Theo-
phile Braga, who may be said, without exaggeration to be the father, not
only of this revolution, but of that In
Brazil, having, by his standing as
a professor in history and philosophy,
prepared the ground for both movements. His unassuming manners
may be inferred from the fact that
after having been elected first president of Portugal, he returned, as
usual, in a second-class compartment
of the train to his unpretentious little
President Braga has written much
on the subject of sociology and political economy, and has published
several volumes of poetry. He has
great ability as an orator. His political career has been comparatively
brief, but he has preached republicanism for thirty-five years.
He attracted much attention in
the slimmer of 190S, when be accused the monarchist party of having
assassinated King Carlos.
In a subsequent debate in the Cor-
ten, he attacked the government's
financial po'icy so bitterly that a duel
with the finance minister, Senhor
D'Esprequeci, was narrowly averted.
Uf a democratic temperament, and
habits, he is popular with the masses.
Other Officers
The officers of the new provincial
government of Portugal have represented for years the republican movement and have assumed the responsibility for the overthrow of the monarchy.
Of the eight men, the most widely
known outside of Portugal are distinguished scholars and teachers.
These are President Theophile Braga,
professor of Portuguese literature at
the Literary college at Lisbon; the
foreign minister, Senhor Barnardo
Machado, of the Lisbon university,
and Dr. Alfonza Costa, of the University of Coimbra, the minister of justice.
The Foreign Minister, Senhor Machado, has for years been described
as the flrst president of the predicted
republic and it. Is considered he will
he chosen to the office. Of all the
republican leaders he Is perhaps the
stronegst and bis influence Is great,
lie, too, Is a brilliant speaker.
In  January,  1908,  he was accus-
sed of conspiracy against the crown,
but the accusations were never proven.    In 1908 as speaker for the republican party he denied any connection whateevr with the assassinations
of that year, but said that the general
horror    felt   over the assassinations
Would die out and that the discontent  with   the  monarchy  would  re-

is perhaps the most brilliant member of the new government. He has
openly worked for the overthrow of
the monarchy. A year ago be was
turned out of the Cortes for an attack on the extravagance of the rfyal
family. After the August elections
he declared that the monarchy was
(loomed and boldly advised King
.Manuel to abdicate.

In fact, not a vestige is now seen
of the picture postcards of the king
or of any other member of the royal
family. These have given way to
pictures of members of the new government and the photographic records of the revolution, in the shape
of groups of armed leaders and companies of insurgent troops, not in action, but posing for the camera.
The damage done to the city by the
bombarding was surprisingly small.
On the journey down to Lisbon from
the frontier, one hears at each stopping place blood-curdling recitals of
thousands of persons having been
killed and whole quarters of the city
having been devastated or wiped out.
The total number killed has not been
ascertained, but it probably does not
exceed three hundred.
Recent events that startled the
world are discussed with calm by
all classes. The general feeling evidently Is one of relief that a crisis
long anticipated was surmounted so
speedily with comparatively little
violence and such a brief dislocation
of the national life.
Admiral Rels Is described as young,
versatile and competent. As commander of the fleet he Is compared

was a young man. Premier Machado

the necessity of maintaining the British alliance.
Friendly to Britain
President Braga in an Interview
with the British minister assured
him that the republic would continue
the friendly relation with Great Britain.
In a conference of German, Spanish, Italian and British ambassadors,
it was agreed to confide in Great
Britain the protection of Europeans
in Portugal.
King Manuel has cabled to London
that he Is in good health. He does
not mention the revolution. It Is expected that he will remain at Gibraltar and watch  the course of events.

Tbe Camosun, after a delay of two
weeks, will make her usual run, to
tills port this evening. The staterooms of the steamer have been remodelled, the berths now being much
larger than the former ones, and
with the commodious staterooms
which characterize the steamer, she
will now be even more poular than
ever. The Camosun made a very
good record for herself last winter
and It is expected that this winter
she will be able to take care of a
large part of the trade between Vancouver and this port.
As the Prince Rupert brought very
little mall, a large one Is expected on
the Camosun this evening.
She will make her usual run to
Stewart at 3.00 a.m. Saturday.
The Cottage City arrived In port
lost evening from the soutii with a
full cargo of perishables and provisions for this port. She also brought
a fairly large mall, including some
from Vancouver and Victoria.
The steamer Princess May, of the
C. P. R., which is undergoing repairs
at the B. C. Marine Railway company's yards at Esquimau, when she
re-enters service on the Victoria-
Skagway run about three months
hence, will be equipped as an oil-
burning steamer. A trial is to be
made with the steamer Princess May
and if success is achieved, as is expected, the greater number of the
steamers of the British Columbia
service of tiie C. P. H. company, and
also the Empress steamers in the
trans-Pacific trade, will be equipped
as oil-burners. It is not improbable,
too, that the locomotives of the Pacific division of the railroad may be
converted to burn oil.
The steamer Princess May will be
the first steamer to be converted, advantage being taken of her repairs at
Esquimau to make the necessary
changes to convert her from a coal
burner to an oil-burner, and it is expected that work on the steamers
Princess Victoria and Princess Charlotte will follow, both steamers being probably converted into oil-burners before the spring.
For about two years the C. P. R.
has been considering the change. For
some time past the company has bad
an offer from the Standard Oil company to suply oil at a fixed price covering a long term of years. The matter has been thoroughly considered,
and many exhaustive reports have
been investigated, comparing tbe use
of oil and coal on many vessels. Investigation has also been made on
board the steamers Iroquois and
Chippewa, of the Puget Sound Navigation company, which burn oil fuel,
and the decision has now been reached to convert the steamer Princess
May to an oil burner as the test
The oil fuel has long past the experimental stage, and large ocean
liners and warships have been burning this liquid fuel for some years.
The big Japanese turbine liners
Chlyo Maru and Tenyo Maru of the
Toyo Klsen Kalsha's line to San
Francisco, are notable examples of
large liners using oil fuel In the Pacific. Plans have consequently been
secured for the conversion of the fast
Princess liners, the Princess Victoria
and Princess Charlotte, and as soon
as the new steamer Princess Adelaide arrives from the Clyde, probably about the end of November, an
opportunity will be found to lay oft
the three-funnel liners in their turn
for the change.
The supply of oil is to be kept at
Vancouver and Seattle, where large
tanks for storage of sufficient oil for
the company's steamers will be maintained. Aill of the company's steamers call at Seattle or Vancouver, and
they will take on their supply of oil
at one or other of these ports.
The officials of the company have
been obtaining data for the last two
years regarding the use of fuel oil.
Since the proposition was received
about two years ago from the oil
company for the supply of liquid fuel
the question has been exhaustively
considered and decision lias now been
considered and decision has now
been  reached   to  make  a  series  of
final  experiments with  the steamer
Princess May.
The use of fuel oil by the coast
steamers will reduce the fireroom
staff on each vessel by two-thirds,
the stokers being eliminated. The
cost of the oil itself is practically as
great as coal, but the saving of labor
of weight carried, space and in handling, is great. Owners of steamers
now burning oil state that the saving
is from 40 to 60 per cent.
"Presented by the province of
British Columbia to H. M. C. S. Rainbow in welcome recognition of this
being the first vessel of the Canadian navy to be stationed on the Pacific coast of the Dominion, and with
the loyal hope and belief that the
Rainbow and her successors may fulfil their part in uniting the strengthening the naval defences of the Empire."
The above is the inscription which
is to appear on the piece of plate
which is to be presented by the government of British Columbia to H.
M. C. S. Rainbow on her arrival
here early ln November.
Hon. J. H. Turner, agent-general
for British Columbia, has advised
the premier that a beautiful design
for the, plate has been completed
by the London Goldsmiths & Silversmiths' Co., Limited, the principal
workers ln such forms of art at the
world's metropolis, with whom an
or.der has been placed.
The design has been submitted to
and heartily approved by Admiral
Kingsmill, and provides for a very
handsome vase centrepiece, the
handles formed respectively of the
wapiti and the big horn sheep of
British Columbia, emblems of a
nutical character being at the

Empress of India, who stated her
position at about 150 miles westward,
announcing a ninety-mile gale. Suddenly the apparatus was put out of
service. Almost simultaneously
with the disappearance of the staysail the wireless masts and apparatus
were carried away. While the decks
were awash for hours, no serious
damage was done, and the wireless
was repaired shortly after the vessel
entered the strait.
Indians Who Stole From Storehouse
of P. Burns Are Punished
No effort Is being spared to get all
the freight possible up the Skeena before navigation closes. Time Is precl"
ous now and advantage is taken of
every means to increase the deliveries
at the different camps. In consequence of tiie je.lnt use of steamers
and the railway line excellent progress Is being made.
Peter Brown and Austin Matthews,
the Indians charged with stealing
meat and other material from the
storehouse of P. Burns near Hazelton, were tried before Judge Young
in the county court yesterday. The
men pleaded guilty, but on their behalf the fact was set forth that the
goods had been returned was put forward.
Judge Young, in view of all the
circumstances, dealt lemiently in inflicting punishment, and sentenced
them to one year each in the provincial jail at New  Westminster.

The city of Fernie has decided to
adopt meters in connection with the
electric lighting. At a recent meeting of the council there Superintendent Hammond of the electric lighting system made a kick about people
who get lights on a flat rate and use
the juice through the day for electric
irons, toasters, coffee percolators,
electric massage, electropathic treatments and other purposes too numerous to mention.
The council cut the flat rate off
absolutely. As soon as they can be
installed all juice from the power
plant will be measured out by meter.
In this connection Supt. Hammond
suggested that he might need police
protection to put the meters Int he
Chinese houses and stores as the
Celestials are very superstitious and

The steamer Senator, which Is expected shortly to take the place of
the Cottage City on the Skagway
run for a litte time while the Cottage City is being overhauled, had a
trying experience on her last run
from Nome.
Struggling in the teeth of a hundred-mile gale, the steamer was at
the mercy of the wind and a sea
which broke over her upper deck for
hours, 350 miles out from Flattery.
A staysail was put up to ease the
kicking about, and following the
rapid fall of the barometer all hands
were ordered Inside, the staysail and
oil bags put into place, and the vessel hove to.
Suddenly the staysail was loosened
and clutched by the high wind, was
blown away and disappeared Into the
inky black sea. The wireless operator

Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
Vancouver.—At the close of the
meeting of the Vancouver Navy
League the meeting, which included
many people not members of the
league, proceeded to discuss the question of a training brig for Vancouver.
•uie chairman, Rev. H. G. Piennes-
Cllnton, Rev. R. J. Wilson, Dr. Davis,
Mr. McMahon, Mr. Healey, Mr. Lock-
ingham and others all dwelt eloquently on the good work such a
training ship would accomplish,    F.
which is so well known for the work
accomplished there. The principal
of Bishop Latimer college is the Rev.
W. H. Vance, B.A., a graduate of the
University of Toronto and Wycliffe
college, and for five years rector of
Ascension, Toronto, and for the present he will be dependent upon local
assistance, as no resident professors
will yet be appointed. Those who
will act In this capacity are the Rev.
A. H. Sovereign, M.A., and the Rev.
G. H. Wilson, B.A., who have kindly
consented to help in the work. Lec-
] turers are, however, being arranged
Vancouver.—The logs scaled during the month of September were
54,000,000 feet, as compared with
49,824,000 for the corresponding

Shaw spoke from personal experience I ducing their cut owing to a lessening
of the value of the discipline on such
a ship, and a strong delegation from
the Juvenile Protection society urged
that it would be of inestimable value
In improving the morale and health
of the boys.
It was explained by Capt. Eddie
that a commencement could be made
at once, as Mr. Franklin had generously placed that hall at his service.
They could consider the hall a brig
until a real one arrived in Burrard
Inlet, and a number of lads were
ready to enroll themselves. This was
to be a voluntary training; it was
not necessary that the boys should
be regarded as refractory. He would
teach and carry on their training on
Navy League training ship lines. A
committee could get to work and procure a proper training ship so that
Vancouver could supply the boys to
become men fit for the mercantile
and naval marine. On the motion of
Captain Archer, Captain Eddie was
elected commandant. He will take
up his class at once. A strong committee was chosen, including the
chairman, Messrs. R. O. Bell-Irving,
Prof. Locklngton, Mr. Bosom-worth,
Mr. Auld, Mr. F. Shaw, Dr. Davis,
Mr. J. Francis Burslll, Mr. Lewth-

Victoria.—After October 31 the
restricted district will be no more.
The fiat of the police commission has
gone forth to the effect, that all and-
lords of the houses in the local under
world shall, on pain of prosecution
under the provisions of the Criminal
Code, see to it that their premises
are not further used as disorderly
houses and the various occupants of
the places will receive similar warning. In fact the order of tbe commission was communicated to the
denizens of the restricted district
last night when police officers personally visited the premises and conveyed tite warning.
Just what moved the commission
to take this step is not certain. None
of the members were willing to talk
and beyond admitting that the order
had been issued declined to say anything further. The action is said,
however, to have been teb result of
the recent meeting between representatives of the Voters' League and
tite police commission when the
former pointed out that under the
law the commission was practically
harboring a large number of crimin.
nls. This meeting was secret and
just what actually transpired Is not
known, bul yesterday's derision by
the commission Is the direct outcome
of that session.
There Is, It Is said, no Intention
of proceeding against the owners, lessees or occupents at present. Criminal prosecutions will be taken only If
the order is not obeyed on the date
set, October 81.
Victoria.—In the possession of'Dr.
C. J. Fagan, secretary of the provincial health department, who leaves

hermetically-sealed tube containing a
gruesome exhibit in connection with
the mysterious Black Hand murder
at Revelostoke, of which Mr. Frank
Julian, at one time a member of the
Dominion secret service, was the victim.
The exuiuit consists of a small section of the cuticle from the face of
the murdered man, showing the peculiar black stain used by the assassins
in branding the dead.

Virile Old Party Leader Gives Advice
Regarding Canada's
At Ninety Years of Age He Has Decided to Remain Permanently
in England
After the stress -if nearly half a
century on tbe political life of Canada, Sir Charles Tupper, one of the
fathers of Confederation and former
prime minister, is living a secluded
life in rural England.
"It is a case of 'ex necessitate' "
he said, when asked why he lived in
England. "The health of Lady Tupper, while It has Improved, will not
permit her to take an ocean voyage,
I should certainly prefer to live In
Canada." *
Speaking to Sir Charles ltl s difficult to believe that Canada's aged
statesman Is in his 90th year; the
fact that at this advanced age he still
plays golf evidences his wonderful
vitality. The passing of the last ten
years has made little impression on
the renowned son of Nova Scotia;
that familiar stoop is not more pronounced than when last seen in the
House of Commons.
In an interview at his residence
"The Mount," Bexley Health, ent, Sir
Charles speaking ot the wonderful
development of the Dominion, said:
"I have witnessed the immense
progress of Canada with intense satisfaction. Forty years ago I was regarded as a very sanguine man when
I prophesied the future of Canada;
but its development has passed my
most sanguine expectations, and occupying as it does the best portion of
the North American continent, it is
obvious that at no very distant date
it will hold a most commanding posi-
ion in the world."
"Do you think that Canada as it
develops in importance w ,1 want to
take a large part In tbe government
of the British Empire?" he was
asked. „
"Tbe present generation" he replied, "will, in my opinion, see the
population of Canad surpass that of
the United Kingdom, but I see no
reason to suppose that Canada and
the other Dominions, however great
and important they may become, will
Hot be proud to enjoy the position of
sister nations. Of course all the Importance that attaches to any portion of the Empire will be greatly enhanced by the future greatness of
Canada, and the Empire by the development of its outlying parts will
command still greater Influence In
International affairs than it wields
at present."
On the much discussed question of
annexation to the United States Sir
Charles was quite emphatic.
"The question of annexation was
settled in the contest of 1891, and in
my judgment settled for ever," he
Asked what position he thought
Canada would take in the event of a
European war, Sir Charles declined
to give an opinion. When it was
sugegsted that a defensive alliance
between the United States and reat
Britain would be a happy solution
and would dispel any fear of England being overwhelmed In an European conflict he was warmly sympathetic.
"If Great Britain and the United
States would stand together," he
said, "no combination of powers
could affect their position. They
could keep the peace of the world. I
do not mean that they could prevent
the antagonisms of European countries among themselves,">but they
could main tain the supremacy of
the Anglo-Saxon race."
Sir Charles Is an ardent believer In
the benefits of protection. "Canada
owes all of Its present greatness to
the protective policy am* that policy
will be maintained. Protection In
Canada will not be abandonee! u
\     your time," he said.
Discussing tbe question of Imperial preference, Sir Charles said:—
"I look upon a mutual preferential tariff between the Dominion and
the other portions of the British Empire as a policy that will be atlended
by the happiest results by creating
a strong bond of mutual self-interest
to add to the sentimental loyalty
that now exists in all parts of the
Sir Charles recreations are driving and golfing. Frequently he Is to
be seen on the links which adjoin
his house.
"1 am very fond or golf," he Informed the reporter, "but my medical adviser restricts my participation
in the game to 'putting.' $t is n consolation, howevM', to know tiial all
championships   are   decided   on   the
'putting' green," he added jovially.
Sir Charles' son J. Stewart Tupper,
K.C., of Winnipeg, and his wife and
family are at present visitors at
"The Mount." Mr. Tupper Is In England pleading cases before the pudi-
cial committee of the privy council.
Sir Charles Hlbbert Tupper of Vancouver, and William Tupper of Winnipeg, are expected shortly.
"It has been a source of unbounded satisfaction to me," said Sir
Charles, in conclusion, "that all the
great measures ln which I was per-
mlted to take part have been BOlved
practically in the direction of my exertions; the Confederation of Canada, the binding together by steel
bonds of the provinces from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and the opening up of that great granary between
the Red river and the Rocky mountains, which under a policy of protection Canada was able to achieve,
enable me to look back with great
satisfaction on the consummation of
the great questions with which in my
public life I was occupied.
"You ask me to give you a message to Canada. It Is this: 'Go on
and prosper.' No country In the
world, In my judgment, is prospering
to such a great extent as Canada, or
on so sure a foundation, and It would
pass the most prophetic vision to say
what position she will obtain in the
not distant future."
William Sullivan, catcher of the
Chicago White Sox, will not attempt
to catch a ball thrown from an aeroplane at a height of 1,000 feet. Sullivan declined the offer of Aviator
Williard to take up a dozen balls and
drop them one at a time until Sullivan held one. Sullivan says that
the Washington monument is high
enough in the air to catch a bali
"Too much is euough," said Sullivan. "A man might as well try to
stop a cannon ball or 9-ounce bullets
as a ball dropped 1,000 feet."
Sullivan recently gained notoriety
by duplicating Charley Street's feat
of last year in catching several balls
dropped from the Washington monument. The monument is only half as
high as Willard proposed to soar.
Ad Wolgast, the lightweight champion, may never fight again. An examination of the champion's left arm,
which was broken in his fight with
McFarland at Fond du Lac recently,
was made yesterday. The arm was
broken just below the elbow, and the
attending physician said Wolgast
would not be albe to fight again for
four months, and perhaps never be
able to use the arm in hard fights
Tommy Burns has decided to take
a little flier into the show business.
His injured knee feels so good now
that he has accepted an offer to meet
a lad named Mayer over in Ellens-
burg in a couple of weeks In an exhibition bout and then he plans to
go to Calgary and put on a little boxing show as an adjunct to some fight
pictures he will flash on the screen.
Tommy has the films of the fights
he had with Jack Johnson, Gunner
Moir, Bill Squiers and Jack O'Brien,
and he plans to show about two
rounds of each "t;rap and fill out the
programme with a boxing bout with
his younger brother. The Calgary
sports are anxious to see Tom, for
■he is a Canadian, well known all
over the Dominion for his work as a
lacrosse player, and an old pal of his
now living in Calgary says he will
surely pull a $3,000 house there.
Judge Robert H. Lindsay, one of
the ablest lawyers on the Pacific
coast, and so well liked in San Francisco, Virginia City, Reno and Seat-
ale, that he Is universally spoken of
as "Col. Bob." was elected president
of the Northwestern Baseball League
at the annual meeting in Seattle.
The defeat of former President to.
H. Lucas was due to the opposition
of the different cities briefly outlined
already. Tacoma, represented by
President Eddie Quinn, went down
tiie line fighting for the retention of
Mr.  Lucas.
Second in importance lo the defeat of Mr. I,mas, who has held the
office of president, secretary and
treasurer since the presenl league
wns organized in 1907, nnd the same
offices in oilier leagues in the Pacific
Northwest for leu years or more was
he i" Ignation of Eddie Quinn of
Tacoma, as a director of. the league.
ln his place George Shredder, who
1 r.s been suspected of owning the
Tacoma club, was elected. Mr.
luinn stated he had sold his holdings In the Tacoma club to Mr.
Shreeder. The general impression
is that Mike Lynch will handle the
Tigers next season.
The circuit question was taken up
only In a casual way, Eddie Householder was present as a representative pro tern for Victoria. He was
authorized to say that Victoria would
go ahead any time official assurance
was given of award of a franchise.
Mr. Householder was further backed
in his statement by a letter which
was received during the proceedings
of the meeting in the evening from
Manager Wattelet of Victoria.
In the future teams will be limited to fifteen players after June 1.
The salary limit will remain open.
The rule which prevented a player
from signing with another club in
the Northwestern League after he
had been released without the consent of the releasing club was killed.
The playing season in the future
will not extend beyond October 1,
and as a usual thing, will end September 25.
Bob Brown won his fight to have
July 2 taken off the holiday list ln
the future.
Each city had its candidate for
'out of the league. Spokane
wanted George Brown, a well known
attorney. Vancouver favored William D. Hayward, Tacoma stood pat
for Lucas. The discussion lasted for
over three hours and a deadlock
was inevitable when the name of
Judge Robert Lindsay was suggested
and he was finally elected. Considerable business of importance was
held over for this afternoon.
Canada's Relations With Great Britain
in Commercial
Aspect  of   the   Situation   From   the
Standpoint of Relation With
Canada's trade relations, past and
present with the United States, are
attracting a great deal of attention
In the press of London.
A well informed contributor to
the discussion writes in the National
Review as follows: Two years ago
reciprocity with the United States,
with Its infinite possibilities, was
the idea in the air, and if it should
be taken up by. some crowd-compelling personality, some master of
straightforward thinking       and
straight talking on either side of the
international boundary, the Americanization of Canada's fiscal policy
is inevitable. Fortunately for us
there Is no such personality ln sight
either on the American or the Canadian horizon.
There is yet time, if the advocates
of imperial preference here and in
Canada will use the passing hour
aright. The heat of the first enthusiasm is not lost but latent: and a
flood of light has been shed by the
discussions of the last seven or eight
years in the question of the effect of
a treaty of mutual preference between anada and the mother country.
The people of the west now understand that Great Britain is Canada's
chief customer, and that this custom
must be kept and safeguarded
against the rivalry of foreign competitors (of whom Argentina Is the
most dangerous) if the development
of her west Is to proceed without In- j
When western Canada produces
250,000,000 bushels of wheat an-!
nually, the whole of the exportable
surplus cannot be marketed if Canada has not gained control of the ■
all-red route into the Briton's stomach. Thoughtful men of hoth historic parties iin the dominion have
grasped this necessity of the near
future, and would be willing to make
liberal trade concessions in order to
secure the Canadian grain-growers'
position In the British market.
Tite price they will pay is nothing
less than this—to turn each and
every reduction in the tariff lo the
sole advantage of Great Britain,
whence Canada can obtain all tiie
•roods she cannot profitably manufacture herself.

had been made to save lives in It. He
knew of no other occasion where a
woman had taken her life in her
hands and saved life in the river.
Capt. Barney Johnson, skipper of

thanks bestowed upon him for the
use of the vessel, said he was glad
to do It. British Columbia, he added, should be proud to have such a
daughter as Mrs. Rudge.
A great many of those present,
which included all from Port Essington who were in the city, Judge
Young, Mayor Stork and wife, J. H.
McMullin, government agent, and
wife, and many others took occasion
to examine the medal before leaving
the vessel.

The preparations for the banquet
are in the hands of the Ladies' Aid

highest expectations, while the music
and toast list to follow will ensure
an opportunity for tbe expression of
inter-church fellowship, the fitting remembrance of our national blessings,
and the strengthening of the social

Local News
Last evening in the observation
room of the G. T. P. steamer Prince
Rupert a very interesting presentation took place. The occasion was
the honoring of Mrs. Fred Rudge,
of Port Essington, by the Royal Humane Society for saving life. The
medal of the society was presented
to .Mrs. Rudge through to. Manson,
....P.P. The presentation was in no
wire formal, advantage having been
taken of the departure of Mrs. Rudge
for the soutii to informally award
one of the highest honors that can
be won by anyone, the right to wear
the medal of the Royal Humane Society.
The facts connected with the life
saving which resulted in Mr. Rudge
being presented with the medal are
well known here. Her act was one
of the greatest bravery as she readily
took her own life in her hand to
rescue a small boy which she successfully accomplished.
The act of pinning the prized reward for bravery—the Victoria Cross
of non-combatants—was performed
by Grade Manson, the little daughter
of tiie member for the district.
Mrs. Rudge was the recipient of
hearty congratulations later in the
evening in receiving the recognition
of the old society whose rewards are
distributed very sparingly and only
In Instances of real merit. The prize
bears a close similarity to the Victoria Cross so early sought after by
the members of the fighting forces of |Some X(,,v hi,,.u.^ x
the Empire. The Royal Humane Society's medal however is given for
life saving not under the excitement
of the field of battle, but in everyday walks of life. Mrs. Rudge's act
was one that was well worthy of the
society's recognition.
In making the presentation \V.
Manson, M.P.P., said he had great
pleasure in taking part on such an
occasion. He recalled the fact that
the Royal Humane Society dated
back one hundred and thirty-six
years, having been organized In 1774
it had accomplished much in assisting in life saving, having had disseminated a vast amount of information that had been of great advantage
in life saving.    The society had also
distributed many medals which were, ,,,-,,,,,-i,.,,,, ,,„„-,.„.,. ir, ,„,,„,.„„,,   it  i;,

it was indeed a pleasure to know The s|tuation is welI adapte(, to „„ a
that one in their midst had carried ,arge demand being close to what
the distinction of being permitted to
wear this medal. Her act in plunging into the Skeena whose waters
were full of ice at the time in order
to save life had excited the admiration of all. II was gratifying, therefore to know that the Royal Humane
Society  had  recognized  her bravery.
He outlined the circumstances connected with the event which the so-
cii ty had thus recognized.
e Expected to
be Granted Tomorrow
The license commissioners will sit
on Saturday and if Aid. Smith is back
to the city by that time it is expected
that some license applications laid
over from the last sitting will come
up for consideration.
So far the licenses have been confined to the heart of the city quite
well. A strong agitation is being
made to have a few located more in
the outskirts of the business section.
One that is being strongly pressed
forward is that standing in the name
of M. Albert, on First avenue near
the new government wharf. The
premises are at present occupied as
a   rooming   quarter   for   men.     The
will be an important shipping section
very shortly.

Miss Ella May Peacock, daughter
of Mr. Richard Peacock of this city,
was united in wedlock to Mr. George
William Phillpott of the Grand Trunk
staff, on the evening of Thursday last
October 6. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Chas. R. Sing, B.D.,
at the residence of the bride's father
on Eighth avenue, their immediate
friends being present to witness the
happy event. Mr. Phillpott is receiving the hearty congratulations ot liis
many friends in the city.
The firm of Director, Cohen & Co.,

The Clinton rooms, formerly under
the name of the Fraser House at the
corner of Fraser and Eighth streets,

who has taken over these rooms, has
spared no expense in endeavoring to
make this house one of the best in
the city for boarders and roomers.
Home cooking is to be a specialty in
connection with this house, and Mrs.
Anderson promises a very comfortable house for her boarders.
At the meeting of the city council
last evening there was a recommendation from the electric light committee that the tender of the Canadian General Electric company, for
the supply of the necessary equipment for the new lighting system in
the city should be accepted. The sum
involved was given as $6,980. Aid.
Mobley in speaking to the report said
that while the committee had been
authorized to make the purchases
the members did not feel like taking
the responsibility without referring
it to the council. The report was
adopted and the order will be placed.

parts referred to, while there were
other parts where there were lots
many times more valuable left unimproved. They pledged the credit of
the city to the extent of $250 on a
$300 lot.
The property .owners on Sixth avenue and other parts where high assessments prevailed, had a right to
be given a chance to improve their
properties by avoiding the pledging
of the credit of the city to improve
small valued lots. These other parts
had a strong moral right to this.
Aid. Pattullo held that the moral
right referred to did not apply. If
the work were carried out by money
raised on general revenue all sections
could not be improved and the argument of a moral right would again
come up.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out there was
a vast difference. The owners would
have a say In the matter as to where
the money was to be spent under the
general assessment plan.
Aid. Mclntyre, while he agreed
that Aid. Hilditch was correct in
some respects, yet he felt that this
system now decided upon was the
best one to follow. Later the business part would be called upon to
help to put the outlying parts in
Aid. Lynch pointed out that under
a general assessment the p'ace where
the money was to be spent would
have to be designated. It would be
found that each section that was not
to get the improvements would have
put up opposition to it. Unless a loan
had been floated that would have
been too large not to affect the sale
of the bonds, it would have, been impossible to get a by'aw passed.
Belligerent Colleagues
Aid. Barrow thought that having
settled the method of doing the work
he saw no difficulty in proceeding
with the work along that line. While
he had the greatest respect for his
two colleagues on the streets committee the difficulty was that Aid.
Lynch was the apostle of the frontage tax, while Aid. Hilditch was the
high priest of work being done on a
general assessment. This created difficulties and like King Charles head
in one of Dickens' works, this was
always cropping' up at unsuitable
Aid. Hilditch wished to know if
this motion would include leaving
this contract below the junction to
still go on.
Aid. Pattullo suggested they might
still leave that open for Aid. Hilditch.

ing against changing the plan yet he
felt the city had started out on the
system he supported. He felt that
a rental could be charged that would
make the sewer pay for itself. He
saw no reason against making owners of unoccupied land pay a part of
the cost.
Not Yet Decided
Aid. Pattullo felt that the government had not considered the question
of how the money was to be raised
to pay back the cost of sewers. He
did not think that that argument
should have any force. He did not
feel like expressing himself on either
aspect of the case.
Aid. Hilditch believed that he and
Aid. Lynch would more closely agree
on the sewer question than on the
grading. His idea had been that the
sewer should be paid for out of general fund while the cost of malnten-1
ance should be met by rentals from
Ihe users. He believed that the rentals to be charged would be cheaper'
than the paying for scavenging.
Aid.   Barrow   felt  that  when   the
lots were bought the sewers were not i
In for the most  part.    The price of
the   lots  were   the   same  as   if  the j
sewers were not there in cases where
they were laid.    He felt that while
the whole public paid Its proportion
of th  sewer and  the user  the cost.
of maintenance under Aid. Hilditch's
proposal   the  land  abutitng  on  the
sewer which was appreciated ln value
but which was not using the sewer

Aid. Pattullo suggested that the
sewer did not benefit the whole city
the same as streets did. It benefitted
the users to a very great extent alone.
His mind was open on the subject
His worship suggested that perhaps the best system would be to divide the city Into sewer dltsrlcts to
