City Engineer Will Soon Report On a
Distribution System
For Place
Wooden   Product,   it   is  Announced,
Does Not Find Much Favor
With Col. Davis
It will not be long before the city
engineer will have a comprehensive
report ready on the subject of a
water distribution system in the city
foreshadowing the introduction next
summer of the permanent system of
supply for here. This was announced by His Worship at a meeting of
the council and it was further stated
that wooden pipes will not likely have
any place In the system. The city
will therefore go back to the reliable
steel pipes generally used in the larger cities and which will have to be
Imported from the Old Land.
Another announcement was made
that the city is in a very fair way to
cope with Are in the business centre.
This information was given at a meeting of the council on Wednesday
night. The subject was brought up
by Aid. Mclntyre, who wanted to
know what the city council intended to do with respect to a water pipe
from Sixth street along Second avenue. If there was any Intention of
putting in any additional water pipe
it would be wise to do it while the
sewer pipe was being laid and before
the cut was filled.
Aid. Mobley explained that the two
Inch pipe would not be all that would
be available in the congested area.
There was a larger pipe on Third avenue that could be got and he found
that by laying hose lines three or
four good streams could be brought
to play on any part of the congested
His Worship said that the city engineer was at work on the question
of water pipes. He believed that he
was aiming at getting it laid as the
work of grading was in progress. The
engineer had not a very high opinion
of wooden pipe for water and his report, he believed, would be against
employing that kind of water main.
The report was not yet ready but
he felt sure It would be along that
G. G, S. Lindsay is Quite  Favorably
Impressed Witli Skeena uistrict
G. G. S. Lindsay, K.C., of Toronto,
after a trip up the Skeena River,
left last night for the soutii on his
way home. He looked Into some of
the milling properties In that part of
the country, but being a prospective
purchaser he naturally was somewhat
reluctant about placing an estimate
upon the values of the mines. He
was struck with the general mineralization in the district. From an agricultural standpoint also he was impressed with the imemnse growth of
wheat and oats. He saw fields near
Hazelton ripe and ready for cutting
where the spring wheat was five feet
ln height and the oats little short of
that. This was quite a surprise to
Mr. Lindsay, who goes back east
quite impressed with the northern
part of British Columbia on this, bis
first trip to It.
Mr. W. H. Derry and Miss Collins of
England .Joined in Marriage
Tuesday evening, September 27,
1910, was the occasion of an Interesting ceremony when Mr. William
Henry Derry, late of His Majesty's
service of the ship Algeria, and now
Dominion constable in the Indian department, was united ln marriage
with Miss Elizabeth Mary Collins, of
Wadhurst Sussex, England. The
ceremony was performed at the
MethodlBt parsonage, Sixth avenue,
by the Rev. Chas. R. Sing, B.D. Mr.
Frank Derry, brother of the groom,
and Mrs. Frank Derry, late of England, acted ln the capacity of witnesses to the happy event.
Mr. and Mrs. Derry take up their
residence ln the city of Prince Rupert. The best of good wishes are
extended to them for a prosperous
and happy married life. The groom
Is well known here, while Mrs. Derry
will he welcomed by the wide circle
of friends made by her husband.
Next week the Canadian
Fish & Cold Storage Company
will begin active work of construction upon the half million dollar building that is to
be put up by the company
near Seal Cove. The delay now
is in consequence of the steel
not having arrived. This is
expected at any time by the
manager, G. I-I. Collins, and
as soon as it arrives the sand
and gravel will be got in place •
and the work commenced on
the reinforced walls of the
With that work commenced
there will be quite an addition
to the staff employed there
and tbe construction will be
prosecuted steadily until completed.
A quantity of lumber was shipped
this week from the Westholme Lumber Company's yards to Masset. It
will be used in the construction of
the home for Thomas Deasy, the Indian Agent there.
The finance committee of the city
council has had referred to it a

Alphonse Ricker Taken South Last Night
to Await the
He Was Committed by Magistrate on
Evidence of Those Who Had
to do With Case
Alphonse Richer, who stands
charged with the murder of his fellow countryman a week ago was
taken to Vancouver last evening to
await his trial at the next assies,
which open there early in October.
The prisoner was taken south In the
charge of L. Crippen who was sworn
in a special officer for the occasion.
The accused was brought before
Police Magistrate Carss on Wednesday morning for the preliminary
hearing. The evidence put in was
practically the same as that at the
coroner's inquest. It went to show
that there had been some dispute
relative to a small amount of money.
Richer had picked up the gun and it
had gone off, although he had stated
that he did not intend to shoot his
companion, Beaudoin. He had then
come into the city and given the information and done what he could
to  assist  in  bringing  the  victim  to.
On the evidence the magistrate
had no difficulty in coming to a conclusion to commit him for trial.
Richer had no statement to make in
the case.
The funeral of Joseph Beaudoin
took place on Wednesday morning
from Hart's undertaking parlors.
The services were conducted by the
officers of the Salvation army here.
The subject of water mains on
Ninth avenue came before the city
council last evening by His Worship
calling attention to the fact that
Ninth avenue was without a main.
His attention had been called to it
and he believed it was about the only
part that had no water. If something
could be done it would be a great
Aid. Mobley said that this had
come up twice and the engineer had
reported on it. In answer to request,
Aid. Mobleyj chairman of the committee, said that it was estimated to
cost $2,400 for a two inch main that
would be only of the most temporary
character. One block above all these
residents could get water. The residents were further asked through
Mr, Tattersfield if they would instal
the water and thus give some revenue
to the city. If they would an effort
would be made to put it in some
shape. The committee felt that it
could not well extend the system of
mains without a revenue being assured.
Aid. Hilditch said that from McBride street west there was no service. There were about 51 houses
there and if they could get the water
any way, they should get it. They
were entitled to consideration. The
stand pipes would be useless for winter and the people would have to put
in water in the houses.
Aid. Mobley said an inch pipe
could be put down to the 3treet very
cheaply. If the people wanted it
very badly they would get it by putting in services in tbe houses. The
engineer was epposed to giving any
further free water by stand pipe
Aid. Hilditch thought the only
way to deal with this was to give the
people a chance to tap the pipe by
putting the water in.
Aid. Hilditch said that he himself
wantid water. It was going ;o eo°
him about ? 140 to run the neces
sary pipes to carry it in. These people would be in much the same position. Every part of the city should
be given a chance to get water connection if they wanted  it.
Aid. Pattullo thought in view of
the recent rains with the increased
water supply the situation might be
changed somewhat and might be
looked  into.
The matter was referred  to
water committee.
to.   H.   McLeod   Given   Hearty
A very hearty reception was given
to Rev. W. H. McLeod, pastor of
the First Baptist church, and family
last evening. Solos were rendered
by Mr. Davey and Mr. Parent, which
were enjoyed by all, after which light
refreshments were served by the
ladies. In an address given by the
pastor he emphasized the fact that
the Baptist church which has been
started here Is the only one of that
denomination north of Nanaimo,
and that there are wonderful opportunities for doing a great work
in this new country.
In connection with the church and
Sunday school, Mr. McLeod has plans
on foot to start a young men's organization similar to those of the larger
churches In the south. Already a
great many young men have expressed the desire to join and lend a hand
in building up an organization such
as this. The young men wl'l meet
Monday evening for a formal organization and election of officers.
Services will be held as usual In
the church next Sunday, the pastor
preaching morning and evening.
A bulletin board for notices of motion, etc., is to be placed at the entrance to the city hall.
To (hose who may at times grow
a little impatient at the rate of progress that the city is making, a little
reflection upon what has been accomplished in the few months since
the city started will tend to alter
their opinion on this point. It is only
a few weeks since the permanent engineer reached the city and yet today the council is ready for tenders
for the grading of the whole of section one, the business portion of the
Citizens must take into account
that the city of Prince Rupert is not
a haphazard town. It is not being
built for a few years as some of the
mining towns of the province have
been planned. Prince Rupert Is
building for the future and the work
done here must be of the most permanent character. There has certainly been no waste of time by those
concerned in getting Ihings in shape.
A policy relative to doing the work
had to be agreed upon, the estimates
made and a lot of preliminary arrangements with respect to the financial side of the question dea't with.
All this has been practically accomplished and while work on part of
the area has already been under
way for some little time, the remainder is all to be contracted for
within a very few days now.
Tenders were to be called for the
whole of the work in grading section
one and these were to have been received up to October 19. Following
that the awards were to have been
made as quickly as possible and a
start made at points all over the business'sgction. The desire of the council was to have had the work carried out just as quickly as is could
be done, so as to allow private
owners to expedite work on their
properties in the way of putting up
permanent buildings.
A little check has come in the matter of the finances as referred to in
another column, but it Is felt that
this will not result in much delay.
The situation in the city is such as
to preclude the likelihood of any serious difficulty being met with.
New Conditions
At Wednesday evening's council
meeting some changes, on the recommendation of the streets committee,
were made in the forms of contract
that will be accepted by the city. In
accordance with the change the tenderers must put In bids on each section specifically.

wharf to see Mr. Stonham off with
wishes for an early return even if
only   for  a   brief  visit.
During his residence here Mr.
Stonham became very popular. He
became very much impressed witli

view of its future. So sanguine is
he of it that he did not fail to make

Fred Stork, Esq.,
Prince Rupert.
Dear Sir:—I regret to say thai in
consequence of reported differences
between the city and the G. T. P.
Railway Company that might result
in serious impairment of the city's
assessment and a consequent great
reduction in its revenue, the ;Gn-
eral Manager has instructed me to
advise you that the bank cannot undertake to make advances to the city
till the differences between the city
and railway company are adjusted.
I am advised that any issue of
bonds offered in the London mirket
would be prejudicially affected by
tbe existence of such differences and
the bank would not care to have
any such come out under lis auspices.
With a view to placing the situation before the General Manager
and doing anything I can to over"ome
the present difficulties I would ne
glad if you have now in contemplation a memo of the city's available
resources out of which their cost
can be met.
The hank desires to further the interests of the city in all ways in Its
power.    Yours faithfully,
J, M. CLANCEY, Act'g-Man.

from the B. C. Tie & Timber com-j slla!)e ln tlme n would he advisable
pany have proved to be all right. A
test was commenced upon them yesterday and at last evening's meeting
of the council the mayor was able to
report that two of them had already
been found in first class condition,
standing the test in excellent style.
This announcement was received
with a good deal of satisfaction by
the members of the council and Aid.
Mobley's eyes were seen to twinkle
with delight as his opinion and that
of Aid. Lynch had been taken by the
other members of the council as expert In character.
A report from the light and telephone committee presented to the
council set forth a list of materials
all representing but small expenditures that would be required to proceed with the work.
Aid. Mobley explained that the
boilers had been tested that day. The
committee felt It advisable to proceed  with  the purchase  of supplies

location. If it could not be got ready
in time they would instal one dynamo temporarily at Seal Cove. The
engineer had been Instructed to get
the work rushed forward as fast as
possible. All Intended purchases
were to be submitted to the committee.
In the matter of poles the committee recommended that the tender of
P. Engler should be accepted. His
tender was at the rate of 7 ',4 cents
for 30 foot poles, S Ms cents for 35
foot, 9% cents for 40 foot, and 10 %

J.S. Willison Gives Reason Why British
Columbia  Will Become
Potentialities   in   Various   Lines
Such as to Ensure Attention
British Columbia, as this province
appeals to one of the leading editors
of eastern Canada, Mr. J. S. Willison,
of tho Toronto News, who recently
visited this city on his tour of the
Pacific coast, is the subject of a recent editorial in that daily, which
"Several years ago Sir Edmund
Walker intimated to the shareholders
of the Canadian Bank of Commerce
that British Columbia was destined
to be the richest province of the nine
which compose Confederation. The
Bishop of British Columbia apparently is of somewhat similar opinion
for he told the Anglican Church con-
gross at Halifax that after the opening of the Panama Canal the Pacific
Coast would become the centre of
Canadian life. If this prophecy Is
well founded, Ontario has only a few
more years in which to enjoy her
long primacy. This month's meeting of the Canadian Manufacturers
Association in Vancouver may be accepted as indicating that hundreds of
men prominent in the commercial
and industrial life of the nation go at
least some distance with the banker
and the cleric in their views regarding the potentialities of the most
westerly province.
Nor is  it  difficult to understand
why they do.    The huge copper and
smelting  industry  in  the  Boundary
country,   the    almost     inexhaustible
coal deposits of the Crow's Nest Pass,
of Vancouver Island, and the North,
the silver mines   of   the   Slocan and
recent stampede to  Bitter  Creek  go
to show that the Cariboo gold rush
of the sixties only touched one pocket
of  the  mineral  wealth  with  which
the Rocky Mountains and  the  coast
ranges abound.    Lying in the creek
bottoms of British Columbia are tens
of thousands of dollars in gold.   The
deposits only  require  transportation
facilities and   organized   capital     ti
help  pour  their    riches    into     the
world's lap.       Hitherto the lack of
railways  has   confined   the   working
mines  largely  to  the- coast  regions
and to the southern end of the province penetrated by the Canadian Pacific    lines.      The    construction    of
the  Canadian   Northern  and   Grand
Trunk Pacific through the mountains
farther to the north will render accessible some deposits already known
to the prospector and, doubtless lead
to the discovery of many others
"Already British Columbians cal1
their province the Orchard of the
Empire, and with some justification,
for such of its fertile valleys as have
been occupied by the seUler are
yielding beautiful fruit. The wide
uplands and secluded valleys, about
to be penetrated by the new railways
will afford happy homes for thousands of farmers and fruit growers,
and produce great quantities of de?
sirable food for the world's table. The
timber wealth of the province is remarkable, and its fisheries are so
vast, in extent and so varied as to
compare favorably with any in the
world. Their immense value helps
to render important the recent headland decision at The Hague, practically extending the area of coast
waters over which the government
may enforce its regulations,

Provincial   Capitalists Will Begin Exploiting Measures On
Areas   Held   Near   Masset   Will
Tested at Once by Boring
Among the recent visitors to the
city Was John G. Johnston who is
prominently identified with various
enterprises connected with the Queen
Charlotte Islands". He represents a
strong syndicate of capitalists in
Vancouver and Victoria Who are interested in the coal deposits of tbat
part of the province.
There is reason to believe that this
syndicate will soon begin operations
in connection with the properties held
by them near Masset. Almost at once
a first class boring outfit is to be? put
at work on the ground in order to'
fully test the measures which are
held by the company. Following
this there will be active mining carried on, the intention being to go
right ahead with the development of
the mines.
The repprts of the engineers are
all that could be asked for so tbat
those interested have no doubt as to
the future of the proposition. There
is a demand for coal that will be ever
increasing and the company is laying
plans to meet the most active demands that may offer.
Ontario   Will   Follow   Local   License
We never know the meaning of life
till we read it In Hie eyes of those
we love.
Temperance leaders of Ontario
have recently received assurances
from semi-official sources that at the
next meeting of the Ontario legislature Premier Whitney will present an
entirely reconstructed liquor law
which report says will be closely
modelled upon British Columbia's
legislation in this regard, the successful enforcement of which is being
closely observed by eastern politicians.
In the new Ontario liquor law, it
is promised, the present system, providing for Independent district boards
will be wholly abolished, and the law
of the province will be administered
from Toronto direct, the provincial
police assuming similar functions to
those bestowed upon them by the
law in British Columbia.
Throughout British Columbia each
day brings some new item of evidence suporting the success in practice of the new law, and it is Inter-
esting- to note that certain of the
strongest advocates of local option
are now publicly endorsing a fair
trial of tbe license law in association
With a campaign of education In the
eivls of alcohol ln preference to any
attempt to bring forward the Canada
Temperance Act at the present juncture.
The latest endorsement of the new
act comes from Cumberland where
at a meeting Just, held of the Local
Option League, a resolution was
adopted expressing satisfaction that,
"the Local Option League had secured the passage of this new law and
that its enforcement all over British

both the Alberta and the British Columbia provincial governments and
of the Dominion government will be
invoked and automobile associations
will also be requested to help. The
suggested name of the road is "the
automobile highway of the Great Divide," says the Calgary Herald.
Mayor R. R. Jamieson was in the
Columbia valley last week and talked the proposal over with R. R.
Bruce, the executive head of the Columbia Valley Fruit and Land Co.,
Ltd., of Wilmer, B.C. The details
of the plans for this road which will
furnish a delightful automobile ride,
have not been completed as yet, of
course, but as outlined the scheme
appears feasible. The scenery through
out Is unequalled in the world. The
road will pass through the Vermillion
Pass, and the trip through the mountains and down the magnificent Columbia valley, will be one hundred
and fifty miles in length and will
combine a variety of scenery that will
be entrancing to the eye of the tourist and sightseer. Inns located at
places along the road will add attractiveness to the drive and furnish places for refreshment for the
traveller, besides adding a certain
picturesqueness and giving an old
country aspect to the drive. A magnificent hotel at Windermere, on
Windermere lake, will be built by
the C. P. R. probably, and there
travellers can enjoy all the plendor
of a palatial hottel with occasional excursions Into the' mountains or aling
the driveway.
Calgary has been suggested as the
starting point for this highway of
the great divide. The name, incidentally, Was selected by Mayor
Jamieson and Mr. Bruce, and appears
eminently suitable from every point
of view. From here to Banff, a distance of eighty miles, the automobile
association will be asked to cooperate with the provincial government
to make a good roadway. This will
extend to the easterly limit of the'
National park, and will be a delightful drive in itself. Then the Dominion government will be requested to take care of the road from
there to the summit of the Rocky
Mountains to the eastern limit of
British Columbia. Mr. Bruce informed the mayor of Calgary that the
British Columbia government has
signified its willingness to build the
road from the summit of the Rockies
to connect with the present road
running from Golden to near Wilmer
down the Columbia valley.
Those who have travelled through
the mountains can testify to tbe magnificence'of the scenery. Observation
cars give the tourist an opportunity
to see the rugged scenery, the dashing rivers and creeks, and the splendor of the Rockies. Along the proposed drfveway, though, travellers
will be given an opportunity to pause
at particularly beautiful spots and
to make side'journeys Into the mountains trom the inns en route. The
journey might be taken by stages,
going from here to Banff, and stopping there for a day or so, and then
on through the mountains with occasional stay-overs at the wayside
hostelrles to fish, hunt or sightsee
for a day or so. Then another stage
of the journey might be followed
with a similar stop. The Columbia
valley with its scenery, Its fruit orchards and trees and beautiful Windermere lake, would form a' fitting
climax to the trip through the mountains.
At the magnificent new hotel planned at Windermere a stop for a few
days would be pleasant and motor
trips up the various valleys leading
out of the main valley would acquaint
the tourist with the country.
Then the trip could be continued
down the valley to Cranbrook by an
excellent road and over the summit
of the Crow's Nest Pass to Calgary,
making the trip a round one, or
rather a square one, for the journey
would comprise routes forming a
huge rectangle, 150 miles around.
Not another trip In the world, It
would be safe to say, would combine the scenic possibilities of this
trip and in a short time the "Automobile Highway of the Great Divide"
would become world famous.
The mayor of Calgary has the
highest opinion of the possiblltles of
such a driveway and Is enthusiastic
nhout it. The valley of the Columbia
appealed very much to him, Tho
C. P. R. has looked over the proposed
road and find it feasible, the summit
of the road being twenty-five feet
lower than the summit of the main
line of their railway through the
An effort will be made to add
quaintness and charm to the drive
and automobilist8 from all over the
world will doubtless soon be acquainted with the route. Steps will
be taken in the near future to put
the proposition in definite form. The
value to Calgary of such a highway
would be considerable.

Figures Relative to This Line of Industry Have Ileen Completed
The world's output of coal during
1908 is computed at 1,068 million
tons, and its value Is estimated at
.C409,500,000, says a London exchange.
Of this amount nearly 266,000,000
tons were produced In the United
Kingdom. America tops the list with
377% million tons, and Germany
comes third with 215,286,000 tons
But while the output of Great Britain is less than the United States, the
value of America's coal Is only £109,-
305,000, compared with £116,599,-
000 for the United Kingdom.
At home and abroad nearly 6,000,
000 persons are employed in mining
and quarrying. Of this total (5,819,-
120) nearly one-fifth, roughly speak
Ing, are employed in the United Kingdom and more than one-third id the
British Empire. More than one-half
the people engaged in mining are employed getting coal, the figures for
the more Important coal producing
countries being:—
United Kingdom    972,000
United States    690,000
Germany    667,000
France    195,000
Russia      165,000
Belgium    145,000
Austria    132,000
India       129,000
The total output of gold was 21
million ounces of £89,500,000 value,
the British Empire supplying nearly
60 per cent and the United States 22
per cent. In the case of iron United
States with an output of over 16,000,-
000 tons, ten millions less than the
year before, was still considerably
ahead of any other country, the German Empire! producing six and two-
third million tons and Great Britain
nearly five million tons.

Division for  Experimental  Work"
Been Made in Northern
British Columbia.
Two Areas Designated on tbe Skeena
River for Carrying on
Fuller information as to the provincial government's intentions relative to the experimental orchards In
the province are now forthcoming.
According to the plan northern British Columbia will constitute the fifth
official division, to which two orchards will be given, the one in the
Kitsumkalum, and the other at
Lakelse. It Is probable, however ( that
a third may be located in connection
with the model farm of Mr. Mitchell
and his associates at Kitmangar.
To Vancouver Island two orchards
are allotted, the one to be between
Cowichan and Nanaimo, and the
other in the Saanich peninsula somewhere in the vicinity of Victoria.
Four orchards are allowed to the
lower mainland; one probably In the
Delta, one in Chilliwack and two in
the Dewdney ridge.
The second orchards district is to
comprise Shuswap, Armstrong, Nicola, Salmon Arm and Penneys (Wal-
lachin), two orchards going to the
constituency of Yale and two to that
of Kamloops. Either three or four
orchards are proposed for the third
official district, which is to include
Vernon, Kelowna, .Summerland,
Pentlcton and Keremeos. The fourth
district provides for the Arrow district, Kootenay and the Boundary
country,  East  and  N.   E.   Kootenay.
It Is expected that two orchards
will be awarded to the Slocan district, one being given on Arrow and
one on Slocan lake, with one on the
Kootenay lake in the vicinity of Nelson, one at or near Cranbrook, one
at Windermere, one at Rossland, and
another at Midway.
The method in which the work is
to be carried out has been explained
by Hon. F. Carter-Cotton, who,
speaking recently on the subject, described the proposition as embracing a five acre plot.
The laud of these five acres must
be put Into such shape that fruit
could be raised upon it. If it were
timber land it would be first sown in
clover to improve the soil and when
that was done the government would
undertake to prepare the soil marked
out, provide and plant the trees free
of all cost to the owner of the orchard
and deliver them at the station nearest to his place. Then the owner
would take care of these trees for
the period of five years. During that
time he would be guided by the advice of experts of the department who
should be at liberty at any time to
hold a demonstration and show what
could be produced and the best way
to cultivate the trees. The government expert, would select the trees
and give the benefit of their advice
In the choice of variety. After five
years the orchard and trees would become the property of the owner of
the soil, so that they saw it would
cost nothing to the owners and the
government was making a substantial
grant by purchasing the trees besides
people would have the advantage of
the advice of those who made these
things a study.
In many cases failure had arisen
not through unfavorable conditions
of soil and climate but through Inexperience and lack of knowledge when
they started the orchard. It was to
obviate this the scheme was planned
and he would be much pleased If
their association would take counsel In this matter and make an offer
of a five acre tract to the government for the establishment of one
of these demonstration orchards
within the next few weeks. That
was one of the ways a government
could foster local Industry without
Interfering with Individual effort.
Manitoba Has Appointed a Commission of its Own on Subject
The Manitoba government has appointed a technical educational commission, headed by the minister of
education and consisting of twenty-
two persons, representing labor, manufacture, educationists, the agricultural college and social workers
A feature Is the Inclusion of two
women, Mrs. A. W. Puttee, wife of
a former member for Winnipeg, and
Mies Juniper, a well-known social
Manitoba thus stands aloof from
the federal government commission
along similar lines.

! Guiding Torpedoes j
♦j. ^.»>ij.^..j.»;4^.^i»j.^.»;«.>^«ij»,>^.<*^..3..>ij'.^» <«<*<*
Some remarkable results have
been achieved by Mr. A. J. Roberts, a
young Australian inventor, in the
control and guidance of torpedoes
and aeroplanes by means of Hertzian
waves. These are, in the language
of the layman, electrlcan discharges
and are a form of "wireless."
Mr. Roberts is at present in England, whither he proceeded last year
bearing credentials to the Admiralty
from Mr. Deakin. His brother has
furnished some account of his doings.
Mr. Roberts established himself on
a lake at Dagenham, Essex, and, after many delays and mishaps got his
apparatus into working order. About
three months ago he had the satisfaction of successfully guiding a torpedo on and under the surface of the
water in any direction he aesired. "It
rammed a moving buoy," said Mr.
Roberts yesterday, "dived below the
surface of the lake, dashed along the
top in figures of eight, and*then my
brother whistled to it, and it returned to the dock like a well-trained seal."
The system by which these remarkable evolutions are accomplished is simply an application of the
principles of wireless telegraphy.
"We send messages to the torpedo,"
said Mr. Roberts, "and the toipefo
understands them. The waves are
so regulated as to effect different receivers on the torpedo, by means of
which various electric switches are
affected, and the planes and rudders
regulated at the will of the operator.
When the torpedo is submerged
deeply by the depression of ata II-
plane, the communication is temporarily broken."
"Then how do you get her up
again if you can't speak to her?"
"That's easy," smiled Mr. Roberts,
as he pulled a stop-watch from his
pocket. "When she gets round to
here," (Indicating the racing hand of
the watch) "she connects up a switch
which operates the planes, and up
comes the torpedo. There Is an automatic arrangement which straightens the plane when she reaches the
surface. Anyhow, she couldn't fly up
in the air, but if the plane were not
straightened it would retard her
speed. We have marked her course
before she dives, and we pick her up
again when she comes to the surface."
"Your trials were made in smooth
water.   What about a rough sea?"
"Yes, that makes It more difficult,
but you know that Brennan fitted his
torpedo with gyroscopes to keep her
straight. Our idea is to fit the Brennan w'th our gear and probably attach an aerial wire to receive the
messages. That would enable the
torpedo to run submerged, and thus
preserve the great advantage of the
invisibility. You can kil a torpedo
with quiekfirers If she runs on the
surface. The depth at which she runs
is regulated by an automatic contrivance of air chambers. Of course,
that is all Brennan's.. stuff. We have
to do only with the directing. If we
should miss our target we can circle
her round again and have another
shot. We were well satisfied with
our trials—there were three official
occasions—and we have to make certain improvements in the hull to
meet conditions which the trials discovered. We want to fix our gear to
an Admiralty torpedo modified to
suit it. An aerial wire, for instance,
would affect her running in the water
and that, among other things, would
have to be met."
"The principle may be extended to
"Yes, my brother brought a
French dirigible, 105 feet in length,
40-horse power, and was able to
guide her with the wireless apparatus
He has also sent up a Voisin biplane
and manipulated both rudders and
planes by wireless. There was a pilot
on board in case any of the delicate
mechanism failed, and he also looked
to It that tlfe engine kept running.
You don't send thousands of pounds'
worth up Into tricky air currents, and
risk too much on a chance. We had
a small model plane at Doncaster,
which we were controlling in this
way. My brother has also applied the
gyroscope to the aeroplane for lateral
stability by fitting his 80-horse power
Voisin with gyroscopes revolving
6,000 times per minutes. The problem has been solved, but at the cost
of greatly-Increased weight and a
bigger strain on the driving power
of the engine. But all this aeroplane
work Is in the purely experimental
stage. The torpedo control Is the
finished article, and In that we are
practically within sight of our goal."
It Is always safe to learn, even
from our enemies—seldom safe to Instruct, even   our friends.
T. J. Tait After Putting Australian Railways in Shape Has
Well    Known    Transportation    Man
Expects to Return to This
The retirement of Mr. Thomas
James Talt, chairman of the Victorian railway commission, in Australia, has taken place under remarkable circumstances.
Mr. Talt went there several years
ago from Canada, where he had been
manager of transportation over the
entire system of the C. P. R., says
a special cable to the News-Advertiser from Melbourne. In the spring of
1903 he took over his appointment
in this state and started in to effect
many reforms in the administration
of the railways.
He labored hard and as a result
of his work the railway system of the
state was converted from a non-paying to a paying basis. Indeed so successful was he that recently a profit
of $2,750 a day was made on the
system; while last year's surplus
reached the considerable figure ot
During the present year Mr. Talt's
good fortune did not continue, however. Accidents were numerous on
the line and some lives were lost P1
well as great damage being done to
property. Much unrest in the ranks
of the workers displayed itself and
in addition the Labor party in the
state parliament launched venomous
attacks against Mr. Tait's management.
One section of the press also aided the agitation and made grossly unfair charges.
Matters came to a head recently
when the adjournment of the house
of assembly was moved to afford opportunity for discussion of a proposal
to hold official inquiry into the cause
of the numerous accidents on the system.
The premier, however, before the
debate had proceeded far, rose and
announced that Mr. Tait, for family
erasons, had decided to relinquish his
post under the government. His engagement would In any .event have
terminated shortly, but Mr. Tait was
anxious to be leleased at the beginning of December.
The leader of the government and
his supoprters warmly eulogized the
work of Mr. Tait in the state and referred to him as "a first-class railway manager."
In a letter Mr. Tait said he wished
to leave Australia solely for family
It is understood he returns to Canada in the new year.
The statement of Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy of the Canadian Pacific
railway, is recalled here by the press
which regrets Mr. Tait's departure:
"Mr. Tait should never have left us.
There is a chair waiting for him."
Mr. Talt was born in Melbourne,
Quebec, in 1S64. The son of Sir
Melbourne Tait, chief justice of the
superior court for the province of
Quebec, he was educated at tbe High
School, Montreal, and in 1880 entered the audit office of the Grand
Trunk railway.
Later he became secretary lo Sir
William Van Home, then vice-president and general manager of the C.
P. railway. Afterwards he was successively assistant superintendent at
Moose Jaw; general superintendent
Ontario division at Toronto; general
superintendent of Ontario and Quebec division; assistant general manager of the whole system; manager
of the lines east of Port Arthur;
manager of transportation east of
Port Arthur, and finally manager of
transportation over the whole system.
When he took up his duties in
Melbourne the deficit on the state
railways in Victoria averaged $5,000
a day, so comparing the magnitude
of the present surplus some Idea of
his achievements may be gained.

occupy and if they do not want their
statements made public they should
restrain themselves. We realize our
duty to the public to give them the
news and will not shirk that responsibility. This is no new doctrine to
us that is being preached by members
of the council. We have experience
to go by and will follow the lessons
When it comes to a question of
public spirit and an honest endeavor
to serve the best interests of Prince
—upert we are not prepared to take
second place to any member of the
city council.
At last evening's meeting of the
city council the press of the city
came In for a good deal of criticism.
Members of the press are always prepared for that. Without meaning to
any way apply the reference to the
members of the Prince Rupert City
Council in this particular case, there
is ever a tendency on the part of
representative bodies when they get
into trouble to find some excuse for
getting out and in about nine cases
out of ten the unfortunate press is
blamed for the trouble. Again we
say we do not mean to make this apply in the present instance because
the council showed a creditable spirit
in facing the situation which has
arisen, in a manly way and proceeding at once to right matters. The
Journal has confidence enough in the
business ability of the council to believe it will get things in shape so
that the city will feel no evil effects
from the situation created.
But dealing with the question of
the press as discussed by the council we are inclined to think that the
members of the council failed to appreciate the questions which the
press are called upon on short notice
to decide every day. The press has
a duty to the public. It is to give
them the news as it happens. It is
a serious matter to supress the news
and the very people who are generally the first to critize the press for
the publication of information that
may not he agreeable to them are the
first to raise loud objections when
news is suppressed which might have
an injurious effect upon others.
The result has been that the best
journalists have found that the
wisest course is to publish the un-
garbled facts as they arise irrespective as to who Is affected by it. There
must of necessity be some variations
from this rule which must be decided
on their merits as they arise, but the
reputable newspaper has always got
to bear in mind that It has contracted with its readers to give them
a fair chronicle of the events as they
transpire. As in other walks of life
of course every one outside of a
newspaper office knows infinitely
more about running a paper than the
men who are engaged in it.
As has before been stated in these
columns, we do not believe that a
city council, any more than any
other body of business men, is called upon never to hold private sessions. The council might well find It
necessary in the public interest to
meet privately. The council must
take tiie responsibility in each case
for so meeting. We believe that a
council will find it unnecessary to
often resort to private meetings, but
matters will sometimes arise that require such methods of handling. If
the representatives of the people err
in judgment in holding such a meeting in private It is almost sure to
come back against them later on
when the facts must come out.
In connection with the question of
the assesment of the G. T. P. property and the difference of opinion
that has arisen with the council, the
Journal feels that it cannot be charged against this paper that it sought
to inflame public opinion over the
matter. While we felt called upon
to give all the facts as they arose, we
refrained in the public Interest from
making news capital out of it. We
avoided studiously all sensationalism
in the matter. Feeling the Important bearing thai ii had upon the city
we fell il a duty to urge prompt ac-
ticm looking towards a final settlement which would remove all danger of anything such as has now
arisen "oming forward. The tone of
Ibis paper in the matter has been far
less sensational than some of the
speeches of members of the council
in the matter.
We si ill believe that the question
Is one in which sentiment must play
little or no part. It is a business
proposition that must he faced in
cold blood. Let there be an absence
of panic and of temper and all can
be adjusted satisfactorily.
For the enlightenment of the
members of the council we will state
that r.s far as the Journal Is concerned we will be very reluctant to
suppress anything that takes place
ln open session of the council. Members of the council must feel their
responsibility   in   the  position   they
The council has been asked for Information relative to the financial
position of ihe city by the Bank of
Montreal as a condition upon
which the necessary money will be
jadvanced preparatory to floating the
debentures of the city. The sub-
!mining of this to the manager of the
: hank at Montreal will necessarily
delay operations by the council with
j respect to starting work on the whole
| of section one, but there is no reason
J for anticipating that the delay will
(be long.
The bank practically urges a settlement of the assessment dispute
with the G. T. P. as a necessary move
before the debentures are put on the
money market. The bank is concerned alone with the financial aspect
of the matter. With a difference
existing between the railway company and the council no matter how
small an amount is involved, a disquieting effect might be produced on
the money markets which would have
its effect in the sale of the debentures for which the bank will be the
agents. The management of the Institution is therefore concerned in
seeing the matter settled in some
way or another so as to preclude any
disquieting effect.
The sum involved in dispute is too
trifling to prejudice the city's credit,
but in floating debentures the bank
probably realizes that It cannot afford to have anything that requires
explanation and might involve loss in
the proceeds of the stock offered.
It is not to be anticipated that the
whole matter will not be settled and
that quite quickly, but in Prince Rupert we have come to look for things
moving with the greatest acceleration. No allowance is made for necessary delays as in older places.
It is reasonable to suppose that
the Bank of Montreal does not care
whether the G. T. P. is taxed twice
as much as at present or exempted
altogether from taxation. All that
the bank is concerned with is the
question of whether there is anything
which will tend to upset the financial
arrangements which it has to carry
out. A settlement of some kind will
remove all this and the bank would
then feel confident in going on the
The question that has arisen is
one of those vexatious things that
every public body is liable to run up
against. It requires careful handling
and an absence of panic on the part
of the citizens and all will come well.
The council has the most exact
information in the whole matter.
They realize the situation very ful'y
we believe and should not be too
much embarrassed by the general
public while making an effort to adjust the financial matters connected
with carrying on the works of improvement here. It may possibly
have the effect of more quickly settling the assessment question as it is
reasonable to suppose that the G.T.P.
will be only too anxious to expedite
matters and thus aid the financial arrangements of tbe city being carried
The Journal has no desire to become mixed up in any petty wrangling as to conduct of the office. For
the Information of the public, however and to remove any doubt which
might happen lo be aroused wo will
slate that the Journal is a union
office and has always been on". We
have had no trouble with the Typographical Union and are not courting
it. As a "urdon shop" we are paying
the union scale of wages as,every
man must know. No other office in
the city pays higher wages than the
We acknowledge thai we never
heard that the International Typographical Union, which embraces
thousands of members on this con
tinent, and which is recognized by
practically every printing office in
Canada and the United States, had
made any special efforts to secure
the Journal to the union. We further
do not believe that this was done,
and feel that this same statement
would apply to every other office In
the city.

City Council Will Give Final Chance
to Those on Streets and Lanes
The streets committee at the council meeting on Wednesday night
recommended the serving of another
notice to those having buildings on
the streets and lanes that they should
be removed within six days or the
city would do it. This it. was recommended was necessary, so that the
succeeding council might not be
troubled with  it.
Aid. Mobley thought six days
might be a little too short a time
to do some of the work.
The report was adopted, however.
In future dragging logs along the
planked streets without some protection being afforded In the way of support will be prohibited. The police
and the building inspector will be
empowered to see that the rules are
carried out. *

W. W. Gibson of Victoria Has Demonstrated the Success of His
His Lack of Knowledge in Aviation,
However, Results in
W. W. Gibson, the Victoria aviator, has made a second flight with
his twin-plane. This flight showed
once more the flying qualities of the
machine, but it demonstrated also
that while inventors may be born,
aviators must be made.
Mr. Gibson left the shed with his
plane about 4 o'clock in the after-
non anod starting his engine on a
slight incline rose to the air about
fifty feet from the shed. Passing
the shelter of a clump of trees a
strong cross wind was encountered
with the result that the aeroplane
was drifted dangerously near some
trees, Mr. Gibson not using his rudder. He shut off his engine to avoid
colision and came down, but unfortunately his wheels were not
equipped with brakes and the momentum drove the aeroplane into
an oak tree at the rate of about 25
miles an hour. The slight damage
which occurred as a result of the contact with the tree indicated strongly
the substantial structure of the machine.- The damage, apart from the
splitting of a couple of wooden
planes and the buckling of a wooden
lateral truss, was confined to injury
of two of the whee's. Repairs will
be effected within the course of a
few days and another flight will then
be made.
In discussing the flight, Mr. Gibson
said he was under the disadvantage
of having to learn the art of aviation
by experience, there being no "flying
schools" In British Columbia. His
flights have demonstrated to his sit-
isfaction that the machine is all that
is required and all that is necessary
to demonstrate it is practice in "airmanship."
The Gibson twin-plane Is a unique
machine. It differs from all previous
types of aeroplanes. It fts composed
of two planes, one behind the other,
both triangular. These planes are
fixed, the machine rising or falling
according to the elevation of depression of a triangular plane of cedar
which is worked by a lever and forms
the nose of the craft. There are also
a couple of other cedar planes beneath the triangular canvas ones
which aid materially in lifting. Altogether he has 330 square feet of
lifting service as against 160 of the
Bleriot monoplane.
The remarkable feature of the Gibson twin-plane Is that owing to its
design it is automatically stable and
its stability is increased by the fact
that the engine is suspended in the
centre of the airship beneath the
planes. The propelelrs are fixed, one
in front and one behind the engine.
These revolve in contrary directions
and the air produced contributes to
the buoyancy of the craft instead of
tending to depres it as is the case
with other aeroplanes which have
their propellers fixed on the top of
the machine. The operator sits in
front and above the front propeller
and thus is no incommoded by the
wind made by the revolving blades.
This removes much of the discomfort
experienced by other airman owing
to the coldness developed by the wind
from the propellers.
The craft is steered by a rudder
somewhat of the same shape as the
rudder of a racing shell and Is made
of varnished cedar.
In general appearance the Gibson
twin-plane Is also unique. It is about
64 feet long by less than ten feet In
width at the widest part, tapering to
a point fore and aft, thus the air resistance is reduced to a minimum and
much greater speed per horse-power
can be devoleped. This type of machine too, offers much less surface
to the wind, and so will be able to
cope with much more adverse atmospheric conditions than the familiar
monoplane or biplane. The engine
develops forty horse-power and was
designed by Mr. Gobson himself. The
machine, also, complete with engine,
weighs about 500 pounds, and has
been tested to carry half a ton dead
weight with ease.
The building inspector has condemned the Dunedin block and insists upon Its being vacated until
strengthened. The council, upon his
recommendation, last night decided
to endorse the proposal.

There can now be no doubt but
that King George V Is to take an active interest in the turf. The entries
for the big classics of 1912 are published and his majesty has entered
anima's freely, which may be accepted as a sign that he will soon follow
turf cffairs as his father did, and it
goes almost without saying that a
victory for the royal colors either at
Epsom or Doncaster would bo hailed
with the greatest delight. In the
Jerby the king has made five entries,
and an equal number have had the
first forfeit paid in the Oaks and St.
Leger. King George became a member of the jockey club so long ago as
186 4. He has been a frequent
visitor to Newmarket, Ascot and
Goodwood, and he was present on
ea.'h of the memorable occasions
when King Edward won the Derby.
His majesty has of late years been
a bleeder of blood stock on a small
The king has also graciously consented to become patron of the amateur football association, and, in fact,
for every branch of sport lie has at
one time or another shown that lie
has a liking. He Is particularly fond
of gun and rifle, and few men of his
age have had more variety of sport.
He has shot, for instance, crested
screamers on Argentine pampas;
quail, peacock, duck and kangaroo In
Australia, and elk, sambus, snipe and
buffalo in Ceylon; while in China he
actually had a shot at a fox. There
are, Indeed, very few better shots In
Europe than the king—a fact which
proves him to be the possessor of
sureness of eye and coolness and
steadiness of nerve. A magazine of
sport recently held a sportsman's
plebiscite as to who were the twelve
most remarkable shots in the coun
try, and the result found the then
Prince of Wales in the fourth place,

British Columbia oarsmen have a
worthy representative in the east In
the person of Charlie Lalng, the
former Vancouver sculled, who Is on
an extended visit to the east. The
announcement that he has been
matched with Eddie Durnan, the
crack Torontonion, will be read with
interest Lalng represented the Vancouver club In many Important events
on the Pacific coast in late years,
winning the single scull championship a couple of seasons ago from
Gloss, the crack Portland sculler.
Last year he went east to represent
the V. R. C. at the Canadian Henley, and while on a visit to the
Cobalt district was taken ill and laid
up for several months. He expects
to return to Vancouver early next
The conditions in his match race
Durnan are that it shall be a three-
milec ontest, that Lalng shall have
a lead of 20 seconds, and that each
man shall be backed to the extent of
$1,000 a side. The race is to be rowed either on Toronto bay or at Boston
in about a month's time
An eastern exchange, referring to
Laing, says: "Lalng, who held the
Pacific coast championship for four
years, has been at Lachine all summer. Charles Stevenson and James
Wray, the well-known oarsmen and
coaches, will have him in the pink

The first game of the world's baseball championship series between
Chicago and the Philadelphia Athletics will be played In Chicago on
Sunday, October 15, according to
present plans. If Stanley Roblson

move up one of the last games the
opening date would be made one day
earlier, but Roblson says he can't

There will be a meellng In Chloago
as soon as the pennant races are absolutely decided between the members of the national committee and
representatives of the two teams to

if one is required, to New York.
During the year 1911 the whole
of Canada from coast to coast will
receive the greatest boom in lacrosse
that It has seen since the game was
flrst Introduced. This is the opinion of Joe Lally, of Cornwall, who
came west.with the Nationals of Montreal. Mr. Lally Is one of the most enthusiastic lacrosse men in Canada
and one who knows the game from
beginning to end. He is prepared
to do all In his power to stimulate
the game and before he leaves for
the East he will assist In the organization of school lacrosse leagues in
New Westminster, Vancouver and
Victoria. He will continue this work
as he proceeds eastward and his firm
are doubling their working staff ln
order to supply the Increased demand
for lacrosse sticks. Here Is what
the Montreal Gazette has to say about
Mr. Lally's trip West:
"Joe Lally, of Cornwell, will witness the struggles at New Westminster between the National and New
Westminster teams for the Minto cup.
He wi'l leave Cornwall for Toronto
this morning, where he will attend
the meeting of the board of trustees
of the Mann cup, to make final arrangements for the play-off, which
will be held in Toronto. Up to the
present time Vancouver and Winnipeg are the two teams from the West
which have sent challenges for this
trophy, and when the C. L. A. championship has been decided the final
play-oif will take place. There is considerable interest aroused in Winnipeg and Vancouver over the coming
matches to decide the possession of
this cup, and It looks as though
amateur lacrosse Is coming back
strong. Leaving Toronto Saturday
night or Sunday morning, Mr. Lally's
first stop on the road out will be
Winnipeg, where he expects to stay
a day or so. He will go then to
Vancouver and from there to Victoria. Beginning with Victoria, It Is
his intention to assist in the organization of school lacrosse leagues in
that city, Vancouver and New Westminster. After the Minto cup games,
which he will witness, he will start
for home, going to Nelson, Rossland,
Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Brandon and Winnipeg. In all
these places the Cornwall man will
endeavor, with the assistance of local
enthusiasts, to establish lacross
leagues in the different schools, by
interesting devotees of the national
game ln a similar manner to which
he did In the Bast, and will be prepared to meet any demands made upon him for sticks, as he Is doubling
his working staff this year.
Mr. Lally says lie has several letters from lacrosse-loving sports In
these different places, and Is satis-
fled that Canada, from coast to coast
will receive the greatest boom In lacrosse during 1911 that It has seen
since the game was first Introduced.
Joe Lally has done as much, If not
more, for the national game than any
man In Canada, and haB long been
considered one of the best and
squares!, referees In the country. He
knows the style of play of both the
East and West, and will be able to
give a fair and Impartial opinion of
the Minto cup games on his return

Mr. Bean was especially struck by
the work of the wireless apparatus of
the Marama, which while lying in
Honolulu harbor, picked up a message from the American Naval station at Sitka, Alaska, over 2,500
miles away. The Marama also kept
in communication for a distance of
2,200 miles from Sydney, with H. M.
S. Powerful, flagship of the Australian fleet. Only for two days was
the Marama out of communication
with the rest of the world.
"While approaching the Pacific
coast it was like coming under the
fire of a battery of guns," said Mr.
Bean. "As soon as we were out of
Honolulu the operator aboard the
vessel began picking up the word of
the different stations along the Amer
ican coast and by this means we were
able to keep in communication with
the rest of the world."

The C. P. R. will not likely have
the use of the steamer Princess May
again this year. This is due to the
fact as anounced some time ago in
the Journal that a hitch has occurred
In connection with the bids for ru-
pairs. The underwriters have considered that the bids submitted for
the work of repairing tbe steamer
Princess .May in consequence of her
stranding at Sentinel Island reef on
August 5, are excessive. Seven bids
were submitted, the lowest being that
of the British Columbia Marine Railway company, of Esquimau, which
agreed to make the necessary repairs,
according to the specifications drawn
up by the suiveyors for the owners
and underwriters, for $85,000, the
work to be completed within eighty
days.    The tenders were: —
Heffernan Engine Works, Seattle,
$131,200, (Including duty), 85 days.
Hall Bros., Eagle harbor, $120,000
(plus  duty)   95 days.
Moran Shipyards, Seattle, $125,000
(including duty) 00 days.
Willamette Iron Works, Portland,
$105,0.00,   (plus duty)   90  days.
Wallace Shipyard Co., Vancouver,
$98,750,  70  days.
Victoria Machinery Depot, $94,200,
8 4 days.
British Columbia Marine Railway
Co., $85,000, 80 days.
The bids were referred to the underwriters In England by cable and
a reply was received ordering the
steamer afloat. The underwriters
cabled to Capt, .1. to. Logan, special
agent of the London Salvage Association, who Is In charge of the business, that they were of Ihe opinion
that the bids were too high and that
It was not the Intention to award a
contract. Meanwhile the Princess
May has been floated from the ways
of the British Columbia Marine railway al Bsqulmalt, where she was
hauled out on being lowed to Esquimau by the' tug William olllffe. of
jtlie li. C. Salvage Company, which
vessel aided the steamer Santa Cruz,
of the Puget Sound Salvage Company
In  floating the vessel.
The  two salvage  vessels were en
gaged under a daily charter by Capt.
Logan, who superintended the work
of floating the steamer, and the underwriters' defrayed the actual expense of the salvage Instead of entering into a contract on the "no cure
no pay" arrangement as is usual.
Approximately eighty plates have
to be handled, about fifty being renewed, and many floors, beams and
frames have to be replaced and repaired.
The case of the Princess May Is unlike that of the Yucatan. In that
case the underwriters have found
the bids submitted satisfactory, but
the owners contend that the steamer
is a constructive total loss and have
refused to accept her, even when repaired. In the case of the Princess
May the owning company has not advanced the contention of constructive
total loss although the amount bid
for the repairs is close to the lowest
bid put in for the repairing of the
Yucatan, $89,950, submitted by the
Willamette Iron & Steel Works, of
Portland, Ore. The underwriters and
owners are still negotiating with regard to this steamer which is tied
up at the outer wharf, and It is expected an arrangement will be made
in the near future.

Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
Testing Pipes iand  they have taken up four claims
Vancouver.—City   Engineer   Clem-  close    to    the  ones filed  on  by the
ent  has reported     to  the  board  of | original locator.    Up to the present
works on the tests made by him of
vitrified and cement sewer pipe, but
owing to there being some doubt existing as to where certain pipes came
from which were used in the test,
another test will be made in the
presence of the board of works, when
the various parties interested are
to be present.
The tests made were as follows:
Two twelve inch cement pipes were
subjected to a crushing weight, one
cracked at 11,455 pounds and the
other at 12,ITS pounds. A bursting
pressure of 60 pounds was applied to
the cement pipe, while the tile pipe
stood a strain of 110 pounds without
breaking. The specifications called
for a strain of 30 pounds. In the absorption test the title pipe had a decided advantage over the cement
make. Two tile pipes made in St.
Louis stood 99 per cent, and a Victoria make 96 per cent. The dry
cement pipe absorbed 47 per cent
and 50 per cent, while the wetted
pipe stood 75 per cent and 87% per
cent respectively, Owing to the crude
facilities at hand these tests were
made at a disadvantage. For the
tests to be made six pipes of each
make will be used.
Christmas Fruit
Vernon.—A fine opportunity will
be afforded those having friends In
tbe Old  Country to  send them very
lime eighteen claims in all have been
A few days ago work at Erickson
was entirely suspended while the
adult population hastened out to secure claims. Pannings have given
fifteen colors to the pan of coarse
gold. Traces of the precious metal
have been tound fifty to sixty feet in
the banks of the stream and in the
bed of the river gold is believed to be
present in paying quantities, as the
pannings give better results right
down  to  the  water.
A meeting of the claim holders will
be held this week for the purpose of
forming a syndicate to carry out the
necessary fluming and tunnelling to
enable the gold to be taken from the
bed of the stream down to bed rock,
which is about from' ten to fifteen
feet below the water mark.
The syndicate will be known as
the Indiano Group, and all the owners of the various claims being local
men, it is believed the money necessary to exploit the properties can be
easily raised. The river at the present time is very low and conditions
are very favorable for prospecting.
The claims can be worked fully
seven months of the year. They are
such that they can be worked with
a low capital outlay, and the present
indications are that a large quantity
of the precious metal can be profitably taken from them.    The claim

have been deterred by the high express charges and the uncertainty of
the fruit reaching its destination in

have now been overcome by an arrangement between the Board of
Trade and the C- P- R- whereby a
shipment of fruit will be sent forward

Herd of Goats Annihilated
N'ew Westminster. — Sixty-four
Angora goats were killed by the C.
P. It. train from Seattle on Sunday
evening. The animals had climbed
on to the high railway trestle near

Placers of Goat River
Nelson. — Great excitement has
been aroused in the Creston district
by the discovery of-rich placer gold
deposits In the bed of the Goat rive'.
Ira Beam, an old-time prospector
and gold miner, who has passed
through some of the greatest gold
rushes in western America, including the stampede to Nevada, Is the
lucky discoverer of these claims.
About a year ago Beam was observed panlng gold dust on sections
of t he Goat river, but It was thought
to be only another Instance of a prospector's madness. He appeared ln
Creston on Thursday last with some
line specimens of coarse gold and the
news 'eaked out that he had located
two claims Just above the canyon In
the Goat river. A,rusb at once was
made to the vicinity of the finds.

from the Squamish, now reached by
three full days' travelling over an
indifferent trail. The revival of gold
mining on Bridge river (and on
Cadwallader creek, more particularly) is very encouraging. The only ore
warranting attention under existing
transportation conditions Is free milling gold, and very satisfactory results
are being obtained by a number of
small companies now at work on the
ground. One of these is the one with
which Wil'lam Sloan, ex-M.P. is prominently Identified, and which is
working in very good looking ore,
which seeing to be present in abundant quantity,
It Is the expectation that an infinitely shorter route into the Bridge
river country will shortly be obtained
by the cutting of a trail from Bute
Inlet, Into which Tatlayoco lake
empties by way of the Homathko
river. The trail would naturally follow the Homathko by preference
along the line of the old Bute Inlet
survey but there are a number of bad
canyons on the river which will ln
all probability occasion difficulties
for the road builders. The feasibility
of the trail has still to be determined by engineer's Investigations. This
trail if built would bring the Bridge
river district within forty or fifty
miles of the coast, although the rvjad
at present providing the only means
of access to the country involves from
300 to 350 miles of travelling.
On a previous trip this season Mr.
Robertson had gone In from the 150-
Mile House through the Chilcotin
country to Tatalayoco Lake and Chil-
co Lake, finding* the water too high
to cross with a pack train, and in
consequence being obliged to come
out and return to the coast by way
of  the  Caribou  road.

|   An Immense Nap   i
When the Missouri Pacific railway
directors gather for the first time in
their new boardroom at 160 Broadway, within a few days, they will
have ready for their deliberations a
great wall map of the railways of the
United States that is probably the
largest roller map ever made. The
map measures thirty-five feet across
and is forty-five feet high when unrolled. In its mahogany frame which
takes up nearly the whole of tht
long side of the Gould boardroom,
only a fourth of the depth of the map
shows between the rollers at the top
and bottom.
The map was made by C. P. Gray,
of 130 Fulton street, who constructed the first great map that Mr. Harri-
man used to -study in working out
his railroad problems in the Union
Pacific boardroom. The new Guild
map is considerably larger than that
one. The Harriman was drawn to
the scale of ten miles to the inch.
The Gould map is on the scale of
eight miles to the inch. The Harriman map shows the western part of
the United States only, coming east
no farther than Ohio. The Gould
map shows the entire country excepting a part of New England, and
in addition covers the continent from
the level of the great Canadian trunk
lines down to Panama. Every inch
of steam railway in the interior covered is shown and Mr. Gray will keep
filling in as more track is laid.
The map has been a year in making, and eight men have worked nearly continuously upon it. It was made
in sections about ten feet square.
These were assembled a few weeks
ago on the floor of the Twelfth regiment armory, New York, and sewed
and pasted together so skillfully that
it requires close examination to detect the juncture lines. Then it was
rolled up on its rollers and transported downtown on a theatrical
A shade roller manufacturing company made the two rollers. The t« p
one, which is simply a giant spring
roller made of steel, is the largest
thing of the kind ever constructed.
The manufacturers declined to guarantee that it would work properly,
and Mr. Gould had it made at his own
risk. The roller Is five inties in
diameter and thirty-seven feel, long.
Since <t is impossible to construct,
even of steel, a tube supported at the
ends only that would not sag sufficiently to make the map hanging
from it show distortion, Mr. ' Gray
used a roller cradle, which \ 8 designed for the Harriman map, which
holds the roller up at the middle
point. This consists of two smaller
rollers, placed just far enough apart
under the big one to give a little
depression, into which the big one,
with the map rolled around It sits.
They roll with the big one, and are
provided with springs and adjustments to make up for the varying
thickness of the rolled-up map, which
rolls face-on to the big roller, thus
making It so that the little cradle
rollers touch only the canvass back of
the map.
About a fourth of the depth of the
map shows at one time By a crank
and automobile chain and sprocket
arrangement, a man at one end cf the
mahogany frame can make the two
rol'ers move in unison and bring any
point in the United States down to
the eye level. It was Mr. Gould's
first plan to have the map rolled by
an electric motor, but he was advised
that the whole apparatus might be
ruined if somebody who didn't know
how, should try to work the current
and make a mistake. The apparatus
now works perfectly, the great map

Hon. George P. Graham Gives Interesting
Information as to Government
Borne    Pacts   Relative   to    the   Aid
Granted Transportation Companies in This Country
"Canada's Government Pushing
Big Railway Projects" Is the heading
•of an interesting article In a recetit
Issue of the New York Herald from
■the pen of R. H. Patchln, the correspondent of that great journal who
accompanied Sir Wilfrid Laurier on
his western tour. It is in the form
of an interview with Hon. George P.
Graham, minister of railways and
canals, and includes an accurate character sketch of that able statesman:
"It is thed uty of the government
to provide transportaion facilities for
every part of the Dominion. We believe this the best way to build up a
nationality. Until all the people of
Canada have facilities for sending
their produce cheaply to market the
government's duty wil not have been
Mr. George P. Graham, Dominion
minister of railways and canals,
made this statement to a Herald reporter in his car on a special train
which was bearing Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Prime Minister of Canada,
through the West. The Premier's
"swing around the circle" was undertaken to permit him to get into close
touch with the new population of the
West, and his minister of railways
has been an important factor In the
success of the political pilgrimage.
With its vast areas Canada is vitally
dependent upon transportation. The
greatest agencies In the opening of
the prairie provinces to settlement
have been the government's immigration policy and the booming of
the "last Great West" by the railways.
The Laurier government is playing
years ahead of the game in projecting new transportation lines and aid-
their construction by private enterprise. Sir John A. Macdonald, the
great Conservative leader, made possible the construction of the Canadian
Pacific railway, greatest of all transcontinental systems. That line was
driven across the land as a consequence of confederation and for the
purpose of substantially linking British Columbia with Eastern Canada.
Since that time the post of minister
of railways has been one of the most
important at Ottawa.
Mr. George P. Graham was a minister's son. His profession was journalism, but he left the editor's sanctum of the Brockvllle, Ont., Recorder for politics. The leaders buckled
on his spurs and invited him to take
the railway portfolio under the
Laurier government after he had
done valiant service for the Liberal
party in the provincial government of
Ontario at Toronto. Today with their
Premier sixty-nine years old, the active workers of the Liberal party
have to look ahead to .1 time when
the personality of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
will no longer be their greatest asset. Many of them believe the mantle will descent to George P. Graham.
Irish, tall, gray and calm, Mr.
Graham Is an effective influence in
conferences with railway kings, in
debates in the House of Commons
or on the stump. It is not known
what kind of letters he writes to his
successful sons, but more than a suspicion is justified that they would
be good reading for all requiring
level-headed, unemotional, shrewd
During the Premier's journey Mr
Graham is usually p'aced last on tbe
programme of speeches at public
meetings. It is no easy task to rise
at a quarter past ten o'clock and hold
an audience of three thousand persons with a discoure on railway
building. Yet that Is exactly what
Mr. Graham did at Saskatoon, at
Humbolt, at Regina, and a doen
other points. His platform manner
is as forceful, although not so gesti-
culative as Colonel Roosevelt's, as
shrewd as Mr.'Leslie M. Shaw's, and
as earnest as President Taft's. Nor
could Senator Chauncey M. Depew
more toothsomely "jolly" the women
who make up an interesting portion
of jvestern audiences.
One Grahamesque bit Is worth remembering: "Some men," he told the
Canadian club at Moose Jaw, "have a
wishbone where their backbone
ought to be."
When asked to outline for the
Herald the government's general
scheme of railway enterprise, Mr.
Graham made it plalnfl as has the
Premier, tbat the government was
not inclined toward public ownership
of railways, but preferred lo provide
the country with transportation facilities by aiding private enterprises
and subjecting systems to the most
rigorous government control.
"The government has already a
railway, the Intercolonial, 1,447
miles long," said Mr. Graham. "It
was built not as a commercial enterprise, but at an obligation of confederation. Through entering*confedera-
tion the Maritime provinces were
wrenched from their natural channel
of trade with the Utfited States. To
link them closely to Quebec and Ontario It Was necessary to build the
InterdOleSlal, operating between
Montreal and St. John and Halifax,
if we' had it to do today I do not be-
live titS Intercolonial would be constructed! to a government owned line.
"The necessity1 tor railway construction, espe'e'rally in the West, is
astounding. We ha'vf? a greater area
than the United States'. The Republic has 229,300 miles of railway for
its 90,000,000 inhabitants. We have
24,104 miles for our 7,000,000 Inhabitants. The United States has a mlfe
of line for every 365 persons. Canada
has a mile for every 300 persons.
That is the greatest per capita mileage of any nation in the world, but
In proportion to our area we have the
smallest mileage, only six-tenths of
one mile per 100 square miles.
"When the Canadian Pacific wis
built the most optimistic could think
of Canada as little more than a thin
line on the horizon. We felt we need
not go far from the track in either
direction. Since that time the country has undergone a marvellous
change. Vast areas hitherto deemed
unproductive have been converted into the most valuable farm land in the
world. Resources unsuspected when
Sir John Macdonald aided the Canadian Pacific railway have been developed.
"We now have not only the Canadian Pacific crosisng the continent,
but( through the government's policy
the Grand Trunk Pacific is being con
structed. The Canadian Northern
will be operated as a transcontinental
railway in three or four years. That
makes three transcontinental lines. I
believe there will be need for another great railway system to open
up the fertile wheat valleys of the
Peace River country, in Northern Alberta, toward which settlers are already making their way.
"The next important step is to pro;
vide feeders for these great Unes
which will permit the farmers to ship
their produce cheaply to market. It
will benefit the country but little for
us to bring in new peoples unless
they have the means of shipping
their wheat, their stock, their timber and their minerals to the markets of the world.
"A tremendous amount of money
has been expended by the Dominion
government In aiding the construction of railways. We pay bounties,
usually amounting to $6,500 a mile,
to corporations undertaking to build
railways where they are most needed.
The provincial governments frequently give additionally. In some instances, where It would be difficult
otherwise to finance a railway, we
guarantee the bonds. This was done
in the case of the Grand Trunk Pa
cific railway from Winnipeg to tin-
Pacific Coast. The government undertook the construction of the line
from Winnipeg to Moncton, N.B. Together the government and the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company have expended $104,000,000 on
this project. It is a large sum, but
it(ls a great railway, touching none
but Canadian soil, and built on the
lowest grade in America. When
completed it will have a ruling grade
of six-tenths of one per cent, against
west bound traffic and four-tenths
of one per cent against east bound
trakic, which will permit a locomotive on this line to haul v/iih the
same energy twice as great a load as
any of the great lines now spanning
the continent. This must mean a
lower expense of operating, therefore,
a lower average freight rate.
"While the hauls are generally
longer in Canada than in the United
States the freight rates in this country are cheaper. This can be demonstrated by comparison of figures, but
It is our desire not to rest content
with present conditions, but to do
everything to permit the establishment of even cheaper trade routes.
The best regulator of freights is a
water route.
"At the present time the natural
route for the shipment of western
grain to Eastern Canada and to Europe is by way of the great lakes,
through the terminal elevators at
Fort William and Port Arthur. From
those elevators steamers take the
grain to Montreal or to railway terminal points on Georgian Bay. The
fact that the eWUand canal is now
only fourteen feet In depth prohibits
shipment direct from Port Arthur to
Montreal In Ihe largest vessels. The
government recognizes the neclsslty
of  deepening  the  Welland   canal   to
twenty-two feet. This will permit the
siii, ment of grain from the head of
Lake Superior to Montreal for three
ana a half cents a bushel. That will
mean a tremendous saving to the
western grain grower, but it is not
the only advantage which we have in
view for him.
"In the old days the missionaries,
fur traders and Indians came from
Eastern Canada to the West by following the Ottawa river, the Matta-
wa river, Lajte Nipissing and the
French river into Georgian Bay. By
constructing only twenty-six miles of
canal and connecting it with straightened channels and dredged river
courses we can make this route a
navigable waterway from Georgian
Bay to Montreal, cutting off tmore
than four hundred miles from the
lake route now followed.
"In addition to this, and more Immediately in prospect, is the Hudson
Bay route. Glance at the map and
you will see that Hudson Bay lies as
far west as Lake Superior and that
Fort Churchill and Fort Nelson, on
its -Western coast, are as far west as
Dulu'th. Fort Churchil is 2,926 miles
from Liverpool. For generations the
feasibility of a railway connecting
the prairie provinces with Hudson
Bay has been discussed, but not until
two years ago did' the Dominion government take it up.- It is our puo-
pose to have constructed a railway
from La Pas, on the'Saskatchewan
river, running either to Fort Churchill or Fort Nelson, whichever is found
to be the more suitable terminal.
This will bring the heart of the
wheat raising country within 3,500
miles of Liverpool, the world's wheat
market. The shortest route via the
great lakes or Eastern Canada ports
is 1,500 miles longer.      *
"We have sent two ships into
Hudson's Bay this summer to determine the relative merits of Fort
Churchill and Fort Nelson. I Incline
to the belief that Fort Nelson is the
better port, for it affords facilities for
the creating of a large harbor, for
docks, and for the terminal grain
elevators which must be an important factor in this new transportation
"It has not yet determined precisely by what means this line will
be built. Some railways already operating in Canada doubtless would
be glad to construct the line with
government aid. There is an element
however,- which is strongly of the
opinion that the government should
build the line itself and operate it
when completed.
"It is not only a question of building a railroad, however. A steamship line must be operated in connection with It. I would favor the
construction of the railroad to Hudson Bay, even were there no prospect
of steamship connection with Europe.
A few years ago the provincial government of Ontario projected the
Temiskaming and Northern Ontario
Railway, a line designed to reach
James Bay, an arm of Hudson Bay,
We thought it would open up only
an agreeable summer territory and
bring within reach a certain amount
of pulp wood. Before the construction had long proceeded the workmen began to pick nuggets out of
the rich ground, and today Cobalt is the richest silver-mining region in the world.
"The Hudson Bay route should be
an effective regulator of transcontinental freight rates. Whatever
method is pursued in the development of this route, the line will be
subject completely to the supervision
of the Dominion board of railway
commissioners. That body has been
given greater powers than any similar tribunal in the world. A sincere
effort has been made to divest it of
a high judicial character in the sense
that complainants are made dependent upon lawyers in the presentation
of grievances.
"Transportation stands as the
greatest question before the Canadian people. Already the Dominion,
provincial and municipal governments have aided the construction
of railways, including the Intercolonial and Grand Trunk Pacific, to a
total money value of more than
$420,000,000. The capital invested in
Canadian railroads is nearly $1,000,-
000,000. Guarantees authorized from
time to time have been Invaluable
in enabling promotion of railway
projects beneficial to the country.
Moreover, we expend large sums annually In steamship subsidies, making possible direct steamship connection between Canada and foreign
"It is my theory that we soon will
carry not only all our own trade over
our own transportation lines, but
that we will have established such direct routes and such low rates that
we will be hauling much of the produce of our good friends the Ameri-
cants. With our Welland canal deepened to accommodate the largest lake
freighters there will be a much lower rate on  wheat  from  the head  of

Bank Reports Show That Canada is
Experiencing Good Times
Regarded as a business barometer,
the monthly official report of the Canadian banks, just issued by the
finance department, indicates continued commercial expansion.
The statement shows that during
August the banks met the enhanced
demand by increasing their loans' by
$5,0400,000 and their circulation of
bank and Dominion notes by $2,500,-
000, while at the same time adding
to their own reserve and assets.
A feature of the showing is the
withdrawal of the banks' credits
abroad for employment at home.
On August 31, current deposits In
the banks in Canada stood at $256,-
(113,172, an increase of $4,974,650,
as compared with July. Savings deposits In the banks increased by nearly $7,000,000 during the month,
name'y from $538,364,371 to $545,-
The circulation of bank notes increased by $675,307, and of Dominion notes by $1,999,525.
Call and short loans in Canada increased by $246,740, while similar
loans made by Canadian banks
abroad were reduced by $1,988,749.
Current loans in Canada representing the banks advances to business enterprises stood at $657,813,-
770 on August 31, an increase during the month of $4,805,434.
Current loans abroad were reduced
by about $2,000,000 as compared
with the July statement. The return
for August shows that the banks Increased their assets by $12,595,091,
and decreased their liabilities by
$11,423,237, while the reserve was
increased by $393,701.

people. Simply a small caBh payment—then 17 cents a day. That
is the plan ln a nutshell.
The result has been such a deluge of applications for machines
that we are simply astounded.
The demand comes from people of
all classes, all ages, all occupations.
The majority of inquiries has
come from people of known financial
standing who were attracted by the
novelty of the proposition. An impressive demonstration of the Immense popularity of the Oliver Typewriter.
A startling confirmation of our belief that the Era of Universal Typewriting is at hand.

Ladies of City Organizing to Assist in
Hospital Work
Another Meeting Will be Held Oct. 4
—Plans Already in Hand For
Raising Funds
A woman's auxiliary in connection
with the local hospital now being
built has been organized as a result
of the move made by the board of directors at the  last meeting.
In response to the call of the directors about twenty or twenty-five
women met in the board of trade
room Wednesday afternoon.
Several members of the general
association were present and explained the necessity for organization of a
woman's  auxiliary.
After the members of the association had withdrawn, discussion followed among the ladies which resulted in the election of officers as
follows: —
President—Mrs. Eggert.
Vice-president—Mrs. Tite.
Secretary—Mrs. McCaffrey.
Treasurer—Mrs.   Stork.
Various plans for the raising of
money were sugegsted and it was
resolved to give a series of popular
entertainments. The following committees were appointed:—
Dance committee, with Mrs. A.
Manson, convener, to arrange for a
ball to be given about October 14.
Concert committee, consisting of
the officers who are to interview the
school principal and teachers to secure their co-operation and if possible arrange for a school concert
about October 28.
Tag day committee, with Mrs.
Craig convener, to arrange for date
or dates, etc., and report at the next
There will probably be two more
balls given under the auspices of the
auxiliary—one about the New Year,
if il does nol. conflict with other balls
—and another later; also a bazaar
and food fair about Easier, and, If
possible, another concert or two.
At present the auxiliary has not
Imposed a membership fee, though
li may be necessary In order to keep
the work properly before the eyes nf
the members. It Is desirable, however, that every woman shall take an
Interest In  this work.
A meeting Is called for Tuesday
next, October 4, In the board of trade
rooms to hear reports and make further arrangements.
At the last meeting of the city
council II was decided to grant the
request of Police Magistrate Carss,
who asked for copies of the plans of
the city, copies of bylaws and a late
edition of Crankshaw. This was done

instance in case. Mr. Hays had himself asked him (the mayor) and Aid.
Barrow that this should be treated
privately. They were asked by Mr.
Hays to go back and confer with the
council on the matter.
Aid. Mobley felt that the situation
would soon be relieved. He felt like

but be felt that the Bank of of Montreal would probably find upon looking into the ful, statement to be
made that the situation was such as
to permit of the money being advanced. If it did not do so he felt
there were other sources from which
the money could be got.

The special committee having in hand the question of a
site for an electric plant, has
recommended the purchase of
lots 44 and 45, block 17, section one at a cost of $5,000.
The site is on Third avenue,

need to feel uneasy in the matter as
far as the bank was concerned. The
city was well able to handle its
finances independent of any taxes
from the G. T. P.
Aid. Hilditch thought it would be
advisable if the press would not give
publicity to this situation that had
His Worship said Mr. Hays had
been the first one to suggest that
there should not be any publicity
given to the matter. Mr. Hays himself had been the first one to give
publicity to this.
A motion to stop work until the
finance committee should report upon
the financial situation was opposed
by Aid. Hildltch, who said he believed that a report from the finance
committee would be forthcoming in
a few days that would result in work
going right on.
Aid. Lynch said that the stopping of work was probably the wisest
course until the financial situation
was cleared.
The motion to go on no further
with the calling of tenders in section
one until the financial situation was
adjusted was carried.

forthcoming from other quarters if
the bank concerned did not advance
it.    The credit of the city was good.
Aid. Pattullo was pleased to see
(he unanimity which prevailed at the
council board. He felt that this was
only a temproary set back. He would
have liked this kept back if possible
in the public Interest.
His Worship said that the council had been subjected to criticism
all along even though the members
of the council had worked as hard as
possible. The object was to belittle
the council, but they had attacked
the credit of the city. No one would
regret this more than the G.T.P.
Aid. Mobley said he felt the Bank
of Montreal would not turn the city
down for any length of time. The
delay was severely felt. He knew
that they could get the money ln
other quarters.
Aid. Lynch thought there was no

work is to be $3 a day and for any
portion of a day 37% cents a hour.
The men are to be prohibited from
being worked more than eight hours
a day. Sunday labor Is to be prohibited.    Pay days shall be fortnightly.
Aid. Pattullo* wanted to know If
this fortnightly pay day might not
work a hardship on the small contractor.
Aid. Lynch said that be thought It
would be a safeguard to the city
where a small bond was called for.
He also suggested that a pay roll
should be produced before the payment was made on the estimated
work. This was agreed to and was
to be Incorporated ln the contract.
The McMordie Contract
His Worship explained that he
bad seen Mr. McMordie In the matter
of the trouble with his men. Mr. McMordie had explained that it. was optional with his employees whether
they worked longer than eight hours
a day. If they were agreeable to
working overtime they were paid at
the same rate. He had assured him
(the mayor) that he would not be
able to work longer than eight hours
a day much longer as the days were
getting shorter. Mr. McMordie also
intimated that he would shortly Increase the staff he had at owrk, dividing it into several sections.
His Worship said that he believed
they would not hear much further
complaint in this matter.
Aid. Hildltch wanted to know If
that was a new stand taken by Mr.
McMordie or did he take that stand
before he discharged the men.
His Worship said he had not taken
that up.

the other night to proceed without

and as it could be done without
