WANT PLANK ROAD
Residents of Eleventh Avenue Seek Connection With Ninth
Avenue.
Petition  Asking   to   Do  Away   With
Bridge  on  Filth  Avenue
Over Fulton
The attention of the city council
last night was taken up for the most
part with the hearing of the views
of the two delegations, one of which
sought to have a plank road con-
steructed from Ninth Avenue to Eleventh Avenue in order to allow of
building in that section of the city
across Hays Creek opposite the end
of AlcBride Street, while the other
sought to have the proposed bridge
across Fulton Street or 'Fifth Avenue done away with. Petitions were
presented in each case.
In support of the first proposition, H. Gampp and W. H. Montgomery spoke.
Air. Gampp said there were several
who would build if the road were
built. He had come in the hope of
having the council discuss the matter.
His Worship said that it would be
preferable that the delegation should
express its views so that the council
might be informed as to the best
course to follow. Those Interested
should give reasons why the work
was desired.
Air. Gampp said he had heard that
there was some opposition to this
work. He would be ready to improve
his property if the road were put in.
Mr. Montgomery also said he
would like to build there. The city
engineer's department represented
that it would be costly, but if they
built by the alleyway he thought this
could be overcome.
Aid. Douglas said the city engineer
estimated %e cost at $19,000. He
thought ilie district in the direction
of Sherbrooke Street should have a
road. It was desirable building
property and something should be
done.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that
there was a precedent involved which
had held the work up. The city
council had not built any roadways.
All had been put in  under the local
WILL NOT ENTER
FEDERAL   POLITICS
All rumors regarding the possibilities of Hon. Richard AlcBride becoming a member of the
Conservative cabinet at Ottawa
have been set at rest by the
premier stating that he did not
intend accepting the invitation
which had been extended to him
by Air. R. L. Borden. The premier will continue to lead the
government of Britisii Columbia,
whose administration has been
marked with such conspicuous
success.
.............
Improvement plan. There was a considerable length of road to build to
make the connection sought. If the
petitioners and those directly interested would undertake to pay for the
whole work It would be done at once.
If they did not agree to that the
situation wns awkward.
The delegation agreed to look Into
this aspect of the case.
Fifth Avenue Bridge
On the subject of the Fifth Avenue bridge, Air. McKenzie appeared
in support of the petition, which had
for Its object the leaving of the Fulton Street grade about what It was
now with a flat crossing on Fifth
Avenue instead of the lowering of
Fulton and the bridging of it on
Fifth Avenue.
Air. AlcKenzle said it was felt that
the bridge was not necessary. It
was felt that Fulton Street was good
enough'Without lowering Fulton at
Fifth Street. With a park about the
location where the reservoir tank
now was there should be no lowering
of the street below that.
Air. McKenzie was thanked for the
trouble he had taken and the information given the council, and it was
promised that the matter would be
looked Into.

Citizens.
A  Series  of  Entertainments  in the
City   Alade   the   Visit   a  Very
Pleasant One
The visit of H.AI.C.S. Rainbow to
Prince Rupert was made a very happy-
event for all concerned. The officers
and men of the cruiser were allowed
few dull moments during the stay in
port and left early Alonday morning
very well pleased with their first visit
to the port.
On Friday night the smoker to the
crew in the theatre drew a good
crowd and while the sailors were supposed to be the guests, they provided
very much of the programme themselves and made an excellent showing. The crew numbers many talented entertainers among them.
On Saturday night a reception and
dance was given in the Kaien Island
Club rooms in honor of the officers.
■ res worship the mayor and the members of the city council acted as hosts
in conjunction with the committee in
charge.
Following the dance Commander
Hose and the officers were the guests
of the Pioneer Club, the oldest social
organization of the kind in the city.
A supper was served by the members in the club rooms on Fourth Avenue and in company with a few invited guests a delightful time was
spent.
All day Saturday and Sunday the
Rainbow was crowded with visitors
from the city, who were given a
hearty  reception  on  board.

the subject and report to the council.

were received last evening by the city-
council. They were from Pattullo &
Radford and G. R. Naden, Aid. Douglas moved to have the insurance renewed with the same firms. Aid.

DETENTION SHEDS
Dr.
Bryce Wants City to Look
Ground for Future Needs of
Place.
Over
New   Bell   to   He   Ordered   for   the
Electric   Lighting
Plant
The necessity for additional lighting on the streets was Introduced nt
the council meeting of lasl evening
when Aid. Hllditch asked If the light
requested for Hays Creek bridge bud
been arranged for.
Aid. Clayton explained that the!
plant was now loaded up. There was |
danger that the bell used In the plant i
might break, which would leave the
city in darkness.
After discussion, it was decided to
recommend that a new belt be purchased at a cost of about $300. It
was also decided to try to have tlie
light placed on the bridge as requested.
Aid. Hilditch felt that while the
plant was running at Its fullest capacity, yet the first claim upon it
was for the street lighting. Private
lighting  should  have  to  wait.

Coal   Aline   Work
W. G. McAlorrls of the British Pacific Coal Company, now operating nn
Graham Island, returned from the
south on Sunday by the Princess Beatrice and went on to the mines. The
work Is going along continuously
there, the company building a trail
in Hi., water cs well as developing
the mine.
Immigration  Departmenl  Will  Soon
Require  Building irr  tlie City
to   Meet   Needs
There arrived in the city by the
Prince George, Dr. Bryce of Ottawa,
the head of tlie medical end of tlie
Immigration department. He has
come to the Pacific Coast in connection with the transfer of tire Chinese
Immigration work from the customs
department to the immigration department.
His visit to Prince Rupert was to
look over the local situation preparatory to the opening up of the port
to trans-Pacific trade and the influx
of immigration that must follow.
In company with Dr. Reddie, the
local representative, he visited the
different parts of the waterfront
studying local conditions. At present he has nothing In view in the
way of detention-sheds but these will
follow later. The early completion
of the G. T. P. will render it absolutely essential that some place Is
provided for the taking care of the
Immigrants, and this Dr. Bryce feels
will be something that will require
very early attention.
Dr. Bryce was very much impressed with the progress here. He visited townsite just about the time of
the opening sale, and Is delighted to
see the progress that has followed.

ENGINEERS AT WORK
A LIVE INSTITUTE
Kitsumkalum Farmers Will Hold an Entertainment on Oct. 30 at
Church Hall.
Organization has 143 Members After
Only   Four   Munths'
Existence
(Special Correspondence)
Kitsumkalum, Oct. 9.—The mem
bers of the Kltsumkalum Farmers
Institute propose holding an entertainment in the church hall, Kitsumkalum, October 30 at 7:30 p. m. The
event is to celebrate the first quarter
of their existence. The department of
agriculture is going to send a couple
of reputable speakers to take part
in the programme.
The institute, though only tour
months old, has a membership of
143, which is certainly a very creditable showing for such a scattered
populace. The institute has distributed among its members over $1,000
worth of stumping powder, which
shows in itself that the Kitsumkalum
and Lakelse rancher is up and doing.
At a meeting of the hospital board
a few days ago D. G. Stewart, the
chairman of the board, maie a proposition that there should be the initial steps taken to secure an addition to Uiat institution. He did so
because he felt that before the work
could be undertaken there would be
pressing need for the additional accommodation. At present there had
to be delays in taking in patients
owing to the fact that the institution was frequently crowded to its
capacity.
A division, it was reported, had
been made in the large wards on the
second floor, and George Tlte had
furnished in a most elegant manner
a double ward thus provided. Air.
Tite had given the entire furnishings and had equipped it in a most
creditable way.
A hearty vote of thanks to Air. Tite
was passed by the board for bis generosity.
The donation of $50 by Duncan
Ross and $50 by E. L. Fisher were
both reported to the meeting, and
it was resolved that each of them
be thanked for their donation.
In keeping with the suggestion of
the chairman it was decided to appoint a committee to go into the subject of an additional wing to the hospital. Air. Stewart felt that while
the present board would not be able
thought it should have the subject
well in hand and should be in a
position to turn over to the new
to undertake actual building, yet he
board a lot of information that would
be of value and would allow of no
| delay in th.-. work.
The chairman named a committee
consisting of P. I; Palmer as chairman, J. A. Kirkpatrick and O. IT.
Nelson, with the president as a member ex-officio.
The committee will consult and
have a preliminary report ready for
the next meeting of the board.
Air. Hopp of Olympia, Wash., has
been in the city this week looking
over the prospects for industrial enterprises. He may become interested in the city and enter upon a manufacturing line but has not matured
his plans far enough yet to slate definitely   what   they   will   be.

AIR.  CLEMENTS  COMING
The engineering department has
completed the actual survey of the
shores of the lakes at Woodwortli
and the office work is now being
completed preparatory to calling forbids for the working clearing Hie
bore.
This is to be done jusi as quickly
as possible so that no time may ire
lost In getting tire waterworks under

The council is anxious to have the
work rushed so that a permanent

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
Demand for Apples
There is no more danger of over-
productionof high grade commercial
apples in the Pacific slope and inter
mountain districts than there is of
the hens of America laying more eggs
than can be marketed, according to
Professor E. E. Faville of Spokane,
editor of the Western Farmer, who
has made an exhaustive study of crop
and market conditions, in the principal apple belts in the United States
and Canada.
"We frequently hear the remark
that the planting of fruit trees is being overdone in the western country
and that before long apples will be
a glut on the market," Professor
Faville said. "Certainly this is most
erroneous, especially from the standpoint of demand, production and the
incrense in population.
"Reports of (he department of agriculture show that in the face of a
rapidly increasing demand, owing to
the growth in population, the annual
production of apples in tlie United
States actually decreased between
1896 and 1908, during which period
our population was increased by fully
12,000,000.
"Take, for instance the year 1908,
with 12,000,00 more persons to feed
and 138,000,000 bushels less of apples to feed them. We are brought
at once to the tremendous importance
of this economic fact and also to the
fallacy of the statement that fruit
growing is being overdone.
"This decrease is largely due to
the fact that so many of the old orchards in tlie east have been badly
infested with fruits ests, and in addition have been dying out. Thousands
upon thousands of acres are annually
aoandoned to the ravages of the
wooly aphis, the codling moth and
the San Jose scale, as we.l as the
annual inroads made by damaging
frosts.
"Tlie following statstics covering
the yield of fruit in the country point
to an important lesson:

"\e ■ frequently hear the question
of over-roductlon mentioned when
the planting of an orchard is under
consideration. Tlie foregoing statistics show some salient facts worth
remembering. Besides, there are
many more people eating fruit today
than there were a decade ago, and
there is less fruit to be eaten.
"Farmers in the states of the Alid-
dle West were planting ochards 20
years ago with as much zeal as the
growers in the Northwest are planting today. The history of the orchards planted in the .Middle West
shows that in a few years after coming into bearing insect pests and
plant diseases eliminated many of
these orchards, and thousands of
acres of apple orchards were removed
by the axe. It might also be stated
that trees were planted ina wholesale way on most any kind of land,
whether it possessed the qualities of
good apple land or not. So,today,
th-tough (he old rule of the 'survival
of the fittest' a small proportion of
the orchards of 20 years ago In these
districts is producing profitable crops
now.
"You may ask: 'What about Hie
future of the hundreds of acres of
fruit land that are being plan led
yearly in the favored districts of the
Inland Empire?' Our reply is: The
same forces that have worked formerly lo reduce Hie orchards is certain to work in the future as in the
past. But if the fruit grower has
good orchard land and Is willing to
give his orchard the care that it demands, he cannot fail. Moreover, he
must succeed.
"The demand for first class fruit
is growing, and iu the years to follow
this demand will bring good market
prices. Our advice is to plant more
fruit trees on good orchard land and
stay by the proposition."

THE NEW CABINET
In the selection of a cabinet Air.
Borden leas made choice of a large
number of new men. This lias Us
advantages. Practically all bave had
experience In the House' and are well
acquainted therefore witlr public business. They take up the eluties of
office wlthoul any pusi records In office. Hon. George E. Foster Is the
only member of the old Conservative
ministry to find a place in the new
organization after fifteen years opposition.
There is a sprinkling of men who
have seen actual work as the heads
of portfolios in provincial cabinets
and these will give a close touch with
tlie provincial side of the work.
The choice of Hie Britisii Columbia representative, Alartin Burrell, is
one that will give satisfaction. Air.
Burrell is a polished speaker and a
man of the highest integrity. He is
a trained farmer, being skilled in the
theory of that calling as well as being a practical horticulturist. He
will do honor to tlie province he
represents.
PREMIER'S DECISION
Tire decision reached by Hon. Richard AlcBride to remain as premier of
his native province rather than accept an offer of cabinet work in the
ministry of R. L. Borden at Ottawa
will be good news to citizens of Britisii Columbia. A feeling prevailed
that the popular provincial leader
might deem it of advantage to enter
tlie federal field. Those who know
Hon. Mr. McBride, however, felt that
it would be under very heavy stress
that he would quit the service In the
province where he was born and
where lie had achieved such marked
sdccess  in  a political  way.
In reaching the conclusion lie has
Mr. McBride lias decided that the
best interests of Hie province demand
his continuation as the head of Hie
local government. Airy Inclination
which he may have had to enter the
larger field, but at the same time no
less importanl political work, has
been set aside by him in order to
better serve his own province.
There will be no difference of
opinion as to his having taken tire
proper course as far as Britisii Columbia's interests are concerned,
although be has sacrificed in so doing
chances that would not have been
overlooked by a smallei man. The
premier has set out to accomplish
certain well defined ends with re-
spee-t to this province. With a dogged perseverai ce that Is characteristic of the man he is persisting In
that course. I'he return of Air. Borden to power is expected to facilitate Hie carrying out of some of tlrese
objects which Air. AlcBride lias m
sight, Including better terms.
No one else in Britisii Columbia,
it Is safe to say, has to the same
extent foreseen tlie future which tlie
province Iras. Persistently since lie
attained power he has developed a
policy which leas had for iis object
the opening up upon broad and solid
lines tlie whole area of British Columbia. His policy lias been carried
out effectively bul with an entire absence eel' ostentation, (lie native son
premier preferring to allow himself
to be judged by Hie objects attained
rather than by any display of fireworks in a political way.
From bis solid business ability, ami
ins able leadership, Mr. McBride
mad,, himself a power in the province, lie has been of Hie people,
legislating ever for all classes in the
country rather than for any particular section, Simple and homelike in
all iris tastes, lie has always kept
c'ose to the pulse of Hie general public anil knows to the fullest tire needs
of tire people. It will be a matter
of general satisfaction throughout
Britisii Columbia that Premier McBride is to stay in provincial politics and complete the work he has
started out to accomplish in the interests of the Pacific province.
system rather than the o'der one of
a mayor and council purely.
Under the commission form of government allowed by the Municipal
Clauses Act of the province three
commissioners may be appointed, the
mayor being one, but there is also a
city council which must pass upon
the reports of these three departmental  heads.
While there are undoubted advantages under the commission form of
government, the system is not without its disadvantages as well. The
commissioners must be elected just as
aldermen are elected. If objectionable aldermen succeed in being elected there is no reason for believing
thai under another name, that of
commissioners, these same objectionable citizens would not find it possible to get a place. They would be
elected, however, for- two years instead of one year.
When all is said and done it gets
back to the electorate, if tire electorate cannot ohoOBe competent aldermen, how can the same electorate
be expected to select good commissioners always?
The fact that tlie commissioners
give their time to tbe city government is of advantage as tending to
give better service, but this always
presupposes that the commissioners
are well qualified for lire post. If
not well qualified, they are capable
of working the greater niichief.
Before taking a radical step such
us this the people of Prince Rupert
should very carefully consider the
1 oint. None of the British Columbia
cities have found it advisable yet to
adopt the system, although it has
been considered at considerable
length in both Vancouver and Victoria. There has been found upon
investigation to be room left under
commission government for the introduction in a more aggravated form
of Hie very abuses it is sought to
remedy   in   tlie   existing  system.
A conscientious council under the
present system can give first class
civic government. A conscientious
commission could also give similar
results. On the other hand, a self-
seeking council, or a self-seeking
commission, can each in turn do inestimable injury to a city. Under
the council system quicker action in
tlie way of a remedy is supplied because the commissioners are usually-
elected for two years instead of for
one.

to the whole of Western Canada. In
a letter received by Air. .Morrison,
Mr. Borden says that in so far as

CHILDREN ARE SHOT
VICTORIA—A. A. Sears, former
captain of the wrecked steamer Iroquois, while shooting on Knowles'
farm near West Saanich Road, missed his mark, the discharge of his
rifle striking a little girl in the calf
of the right leg and in the hip, while
the boy, who was with her, received
one pellet over one of his eyes. Air.
Sears stood only twenty-five feet
from the road where the children
turned to take a shot cut toward the
school. The report was heard by
Air. Bishop, who quickly leaped over
the roadway in order to assist the
frightened children, who are tire son
and daughter of ,1. Cage, manager of
Percy Hindi's farm at Saanich. They
were helped into a passing wagon
and taken to their home, where Dr.
tl, Gordon dimming abstracted the
shots and dressed the wounds,
which were but slight.
CONSERVING   FORESTS
Treating  (lie   Forest   as   a   Crop   Is
Advised   as  One  of  the
Best Ideas
The progress of the conservation
policy of Canada, as applied to forest resources, depends more upon the
forestry branch of the department of
the interior than upon any other organization. Upon the technical
knowledge and executive ability of
the officers of the forestry branch
depends the future of the forest on
16,000,000 acres of Dominion forest
reserves, as well as upon the large
area of non-agricultural forest land
In Western Canada, which for the
good of the country may yet be set
aside as permanent forest reserves.
In addition to looking after Dominion lands the forestry branch is now
being asked by eastern land owners
(o furnish advice as to the best means
of securing at the earliest date a profitable crop of timber on waste land
or wood-lots. The proper administration of forest lands requires a
special knowledge of tlie trees best
adapted to each region, of their uses,
and of the markets. Further, there
is needed knowledge of the habits of
all trees, especially of the merchantable species, so that it may ire knokn
how rapidly they grow, how they produce their seed, when and under what
conditions the seed germinates, and
in what way the seedlings and young
young trees are affected by their surroundings. Such knowledge is gained only by long study and experience.
In order that the new Rocky Aloun-
tain forest reserves may he administered according to the latest scientific
knowledge and the best experience,
the forestry branch is now making a
detailed study of the habits of the
merchantable species of trees on tlie
eastern slope of the Rockies In Alberta and has sent of tlie men in
charge of the work to study the systems of forest management practised
during tlie past few years by the
highly developed United States forest
service in the national forests of .Montana. The United States foresters
have spent, large sums of money and
availed themselves of the experience
of many men In developing plans of
lumbering' wliich do not inconveni-
ene the lumbermen bul which ensure
the protection and reproduction of
the forest and the Canadian forestry
branch intends to benefit largely by
their  experience.

is opened. Tlie Nordstjarnan Steamship Company of Stockholm announces thai next year it will despatch vessels to Seeiitlr American
ports and the Nortli Pacific Coast.
Th ne v. Ben Ice will be inaugurated
early next year. Commenting on a
recenl announcement that the Hamburg-America Company would send
a line to San Francisco and the Orient ley way of the Panama Canal
when it was opened, lhe London
Dally Telegraph says:
"It is not at all clear what the
programme Is, especially as all shipping between New York and San
Francisco is now reserved to tlie American flag as 'coasting,' and the
opening of the canal will make no
difference in that respect. It may
be that the Hamburg-America line
proposes to run a service from New
York to the Far East, via Panama,
and another from the Plate and the
Brazils to San Francisco, also by
way of the canal. These are among
the possibilities of the situation. It
is clear that the United States has
not the ships with which to open up
the new routes made feasible by the
sundering of the Isthmus. It must
be done by British or German vessels. The fact that the Germans are
alive to the new situation, gives
point to the prospective co-operation
of the Royal Mail, Pacific Steam,
and Lamport and Holt lines. All
three of them are in the South
American trade, and two of them
trade to West Coast ports as well as
with the Brazils and the Plate. The
Lamport and Holt line links up New
York with South America, and the
Royal Mail is also at New York as
well as in the West Indes and Central America, to both of whom the
Panama Canal should bring renewed
life. Thus three lines are extraordinary well placed for turning the
canal to good account, whether as
regards the Pacific coasts of North
and South America or communication between the United States and
the Far East. In a measure tlie completion of the Panama Canal will
revolutionize Hie world's steamship
routes.

The C. P. R. steamer Princess Beatrice reached port Sunday with

EGERIA'S WORK
The last work done by H. M. S.
Egeria, the hydrograpUlo ship which
has had such an interesting history
among the vessels of the king's navy,
and which is to be sold under the
hammer under instructions from
Commander Vivian, R. N., on behalf
or the admiralty, by Stewart Williams, at Esquimalt on October 9
and 10, was to make the initial surveys of the route from the Pacific
to the new Grand Trunk Pacific port
at Prince Rupert. The Egeria, on
her last cruise, went to Dixon Entrance, and tire waterway leading
from the North Pacific past the
northern coast of the Queen Charlottes was surveyed and some work
done in the northern part of Hecate
Strait, a work now being completed
by the Canadian government hydro-
graphic steamer Lillooet, which has
taken over the work of the British
hydrographic vessel. After completing this work the Egeria returned to
Esquimalt, where sheMias been lying
since, her crew, with the exception
of Lieutenant Hodgson and one man,
having been sent home by the admiralty some time ago. Specially
selected for hydrographic service in
consequence of the stoutness of her
oak hull and the reliability of her
engines and machinery, tlie Egeria
would make a model wrecking or
trading craft, should she be purchased  for either of these uses.
WILL   FISH   FOR   COD
Advices from Japan say that it is
expected that with the stoppage of
pelagic sealing following the coming
into force of the new four-power
treaty on December 15 next, many
of the Japanese vessels will be placed
in the cod-fishing business. The
Yorodzu says in this connection: "An
Hiroshima fisherman, in a schooner of
200 tons, has been engaged in codfishing in the Okhotsk Sea, in the
interests of the Dai Nippon Susen-
kai. According to iris report, the
industry is a very promising proposition, and if schooners of the size of
his be employed with ample supplies
of salt each vessel will be able to
return with a catch of 200,000 end.
Those fish sold at ten sen apiece,
which would net as much as 20,000
yen. A fleet of 200 such vessels,
says lie, would net 4,000,000 yen a
year."
them successfully against European
lines and so to break all agreements
at any time or when or where they
choose to do so. What would happen to Japanese and other foreign
lines of steamers if Great Britain or
her various practically independent
colonies or dominions would combine
and stop all passenger or cargo traffic between intermediate direct
ports, as should have been done
years ago, and which must come some
day, if Great Britain and he dependencies are to continue to hold their
own in the world's carrying trade? I
do not profess to know what it costs
lo run continental liners. American
liners are the most expensive, next
to those are the Britisii colonial owned, then come the Japanese steamships, which cost more to run than
any British or other European liners, otherwise the Britisii liners
would be utterly unable to run
against them on the cargo carrying
trades of the world. .More so that
Lreat Britain has few restrictions of
any sort."
JAPANESE SHIPPING
A correspondent of tlie Colonist
who has lived for many years in the
Orient, where he was engaged in the
shipping trade,  writes as  follows:
"The Nippon Yusen Kaisha uf To-
kio, Japan, have started a new line
of steamers from Kobe to Calcutta,
manned entirely ley Japanese. Tiro
steamers are as follows: Jinsen Maru,
Kiriu Maru,—both old army transports bought at tlie time of tlie beginning of the Russo-Japanese war—
Miike Maru and Hiroshima Muni, all
cargo steamers. The first steamer
started from Kobe on the tenth of
September. On the outward voyages
the steamers call at ...oji, Hongkong,
Singapore, Penang, and Rangoon,
and homeward al Rangoon, Penang,
Singapore and Honkgong. No passengers will be carried by this line-.
"All the company's Bombay-Kobe
liners arc now entirely manned by
Japanese, and the European captains
anel engineers have been placed on
the reserve list- There are still a
few European captains and chief engineers ou tire European line', six
ships of thai line having either a
European captain or chief engineer,
One European captain, tlie oldest In
the employ, and one European chief
engineer., also the lelele-si in the coni-
pany's Bervlce, are' em tlie company's
Shanghai-Yokohama line, aud there
are very few Europeans left on the
roasting  Hues  of  tlie company.
"The latest news Is that the government of Japan has stopped all
cargo or passenger traffic by European owned steamers between the various open ports in tlie Japanese Empire.
"A short time ago the Japanese
lines suddenly broke all agreements
with the North Pacific lines, and cut
down freights to an almost unpayable
basis. They can afford to do so
because the various steamers either
carry a mail subsidy or are otherwise subsldibed under the Steamship
Encouragement Law of Japan, which
gives a handsome realm to all vessels which come under its working.
So the Japanese companies are thus
enabled  to start  new lines and run
JOINED TURKEY'S NAVY
 o	
Forming units of the iwkish navy,
which may at any time clash with
the Italian fleet, are the well known
sister steamships Erna and Ella,
which at one time engaged in tire
trade between Britisii Columbia ports
and Mexico. The two vessels joined
the sultan's fleet only a few days
ago and were immediately renamed,
the Ella becoming the Vestlandet
and the Erna the Ramon Corral.
They have been assigned to the transport division and have been fitted up
in such a manner as to be able to
comfortably carry the sultan's soldiers to the distant fighting fields.
After being unsuccessful in trying
to make good in the Mexican trade,
the two liners, operated by Jebsen &
and Ostrantler, were laid up down
the Sound. After lying idle for many
months a report was circulated that
the Turkish government had pure-based the ships and they were at
once overhauled in preparation for
their long voyage to the sultan's domain. They loaded cargoes of wheat
at Tacoma for Europe, and both passed out at the Cape several months
ago. A short time ago the two vessels reached their destination, and
after discharging their cargoes were
turned over to the sulton by the
owners.
Both the Erna and Ella have had
adveutful careers, for during the
time since they arrived on this coast
the celebrated hoodoo has been following in their wakes. They met
with no end of misfortunes and during the run from the Sound to Honolulu, en route to Europe, the Ella
nearly foundered, arriving at the
Hawaiian port with much water in
her holds and a considerable portion
of her cargo damaged.

capacity of a stallion is about 2."e
per cent of what it was two years
ago. At the present time. Star Shoot
leads and forty of his progeny have
won $30,000, which is less than one
stake winner would frequently land
In one event, such as in the Fitturitl
or Junior championship.
lire- principal Star Shoot winners
this year are Ocean Bound with
$4,080 to his credit and Star Charter
wiih $4,440.
Caesarlon is second on the list of
winning stallions this year with $2?.,-
303 to his credit. American Girl is
iris mosl Importanl winner, with a
measly $2,860 despite tire fact that
she has won no less than eight races.
Lueetta Iras eleven winning brackets
to her credit, yet she is only credited
with Binning »1,500 in purses. Hastings is in third place at present,
closely pressed by Broomstick nnd
Sain. Broomstick, witli $20,001) to
his credit, lias one of the biggest
winners to his credit in Meridion.

duce the half that is owing to him
from the recent Lang-Lester fight,
lommy thinks a lot of Lester, however, and he may take the Washington "hope" back under his wing when
lie reaches the land of the Southern
Cross.
Tommy is now a prosperous citizen of Calgary. doesn't figure on
breaking into the fight game, but
it would not take much coaxing to
get him in the ring. He intimates
that if Mcintosh comes through with
any kind of an offer he may tackle
some of the "hopes" who are out in
the Antipodes.
Jimmy Clabby, who sailed on the
same boat with _.urn% came to Vancouver direct from Winnipeg, where
he lost a fifteen-round decision to
.ike Gibbons, a St. Paul fighter. Tlie
Milwaukee boy has engaged in but
seven contests in 1911, but for those
seven affairs he conies pretty nearly
holding a record in point of mileage
covered to the scenes of his operations.
For tbe eighty rounds of milling
that he has engaged in he has travelled in the neighborhood of 7,000
miles—an average of 87 1-2 miles a
round. It is doubtful if many artists
of the roped arena can produce figures that will compare with Clabby's.
Clabby started his 1911 season
in Australia, when he met Dave
Smith, the big middleweight. Smith,
at this time, had been cutting up
capers in his division as a result of
a win over Billy Papke, which, later,
was wiped out by the Thunderbolt.
Clabby conceded many pounds to the
Australian and made a corking good
fight under adverse weather conditions, but the decision went to Smith
at the end of the twentieth  round.
Clabby did not appear in the ring
again until February 23, when he
won from Harry Duncan in twenty
rounds in London, England. Next
timbe he squared off with the gloves
was in Buffaro, N. Y., when no decision was given in his ten-round go
with Mike (Twin) Sullivan.
Big Jeff Smith was Clabby's next
opponent. They went ten rounds in
New York, and again the Gotham
laws prevented the third man in the
arena giving a verdict. After a short
rest in Milwaukee, in which an injured' hand came in for treatment,
'Clabby and Knockout Brown of Chicago had a ten-round mixup at Racine, Wis.

In world politics the Moroccan em-
broglio is S'till the important ques
tion. An article on "The German
Designs on Africa" in the Nineteenth
Century for August not only throws
light upon the Morocco crisis but
shows how the United States, as well
as Greal Britain, might be concerned.
Germany's demand for territorial
expansion seems to obess alike her
princes, politicians and newspaper
press. The argument is thus condensed and quoted from the Frankfurter Zietung:
"We have sixty-five millions of
people cooped up in a territorial area
of little more than 200,000 square
miles, which is less than the size
of the single State of Texas. It should
be clear that a great nation, whose
population is equal to If not greater
than the British, and which increases
by nearly one million annually, cannot be forced from all the outlets
wliich she may need for future material expansion. Such a policy
would eventually be a great danger
to the peace of the world and must
some day lead to a bursting of the
bonds which have been laid upon the
nation to binder its peaceable extension."
These "hindrances' refer to her
attempts upon the Boer republic,
which were defeated by Great Brit-

ain; to South America, from which
she is repelled by the Monroe Doctrine; and to Morocco, from which
she is being warned away by the recent energetic and significant utterances of the Britisii parliamentary
leaders. In the same vein of territorial covetousness, Herr Basser-
mann, leader of the German Liberal
party, declared that "Germany has
not received a share corresponding to
her economic needs in the partition
of tlie world. Territory on the Congo
is not an adequate indemnification
for Germany's economic interests in
Morocco. Mr. Barker's description
of these interests is amusing:
"Germany's economic interests in
Morocco are infinitesimal. Of Germany's foreign trade exactly
l-1500th, that is, one fifteenth of
one per cent, is with Morocco. Of
the imports of Morocco, Germany
supplied in 1909, according to the
British statistics, only 5.9 per cent.,
while the United Kingdom supplied
37.1 per cent and France 41.3 per
eent. During tlte period 1904-1909
Germany's exports to .Morocco averaged, accrding to uerman statistics,
exactly 104,160 pounds per annum,
about as much as the yearly turnover of a medium sized shop. It is
true that German citizens have acquired from the natives certain mining concessions, but in the absence
of a .Moroccan mining law these are
valueless. Lastly, of the 16,4S5 Europeans in Morocco, only 1'e'i are
German according to the latest official figures available. This number
relay possibly have increased by now
;er 300 or 350. It is clear, therefore,
that Germany's important economic
interests in Morocco have no existence in fact. Germany's real interests in Morocco are territorial, polit-
ieal and siratagetical. By touching
the button in Morocco Germany can
al any moment produce a revolt In
the neighboring Algeria and throw
France into convulsions. From Morocco sire can threaten the great
; trade routes and Gibraltar, anil conr-
j pel Great Britain to divide her naval
Merries. Germany's establishment in
Morocco means her permanent domination nf Prance, and an ever-present danger to British trade and com-
'■ nret'ee.
"Last inn nol least," ire continues,
;"thc future greal unite to the Far
', Fast by way of the Panama Canal,
which may become the greatest trade
route of all, would pass by Agadtr,
and that port would Ire a most ex-
cellenl base whence to attack tire
United States in their mosl vulnerable spols: the Panama Canal and
the American war harbors in the Antilles protecting it."
Although German longing for an
extension of her European, military
empire in South America lends some
plausibility to tire- suggestion last
named, it will disappear when subjected to closer reflection. Whatever
their emperor's ambition should lead
the German forces to attempt in Africa, it. may be confidently predicted
that, except as professional men,
bankers, merchants and artisans,
they will never cross the Atlantic
Ocean.

THE WAR CLOUD
B
Less than a fortnight ago there
was not a cloud on the horizon as
far as relations between Italy and
Turkey were concerned. Today a
state of war exists, and Italy's actions
betray the fact that the whole matter has been given very careful consideration, troops held In readiness
and ships coaled and in commission
for war service. No country can
mobilize on a war footing in a fortnight, and yet not a whisper of Italy's
preparations appeared in the newspapers less than a fortnight ago. Turkey is caught absolutely by surprise.
She has made no preparation to resist the Italian occupation of Tripoli,
and her fleet, such as It is, was being reorganized by British officers
and cruising peacefully at sea. The
whole situation is enveloped in mystery, and itaiy's explanations let in
no light  on  the affair.
Curiously enough, the .Moroccan
negotiations between France and
uerniany had again assumed a threatening appearance a fortnight ago.
Germany was anxious for further
concessions, so it was said. France
stood her ground, and then Germany
explained that its new note embraced
only one or two little matters regarding economic details. Al Hie
same time Great Britain rushed between 15,000 and 20,000 tons of the
best steam coal from Cardiff to
Scotch ports by rail instead of by
sea, which was considered a significant  move.
On tile Brink of War-
The    .Morocco    negotiations    have
been dragging on indefintely now for
some three months.   Europe has been
the brink of war, not once or twice,
but all the time, and yei whenever
the   limit   of   French   patience   was
reached   German   would   "officially"
explain  that   the  delay  was  merely
owing to  the wording of a sentence
or a difference as to the meaning of
a word.   It was obvious to the meanest intellect that from the very beginning Great Britain  would  stand  by-
France in this question and that Germany stood to gain nothing of great
value by prolonging the negotiations.
It was also plain that under the circumstances Germany did not want to
fight Great Britain and France combined,   although,   if   she   were   able
able   to   separate   them    she   might
have risked a war with France. Her
whole  policy  seemed   to  be  directed
towards separating the two nations
under one  pretext or another.
Carefully  Planned Coup
A careful explanation of the conditions  leading  up  to  Italy's  sudden
action  irresistibly leads to the conclusion  that the declaration  of war
was determined  on  some  time ago.
Turkey was never given a chance to
reply    to   Italy's   conditions,    wliich
were in themselves outrageous. Turkey was asked to consent to an Ital-
ion occupation  of Tripoli and given
twenty-four hours in which to reply.
At   once   Turkey   appealed   to   her
friend Germany, and Germany "officially"  used all. her  powers  to dissuade Italy from taking such precipitate action.   But Italy calmly ignored
all  the  representations  of  her  ally,
and proceeded to take action.    She
refused    lo   give   Turkey   any   time
whatsoever in which to consult other
powers interested;
Obviously Italy must have informed her partners in the Triple Alliance
of her inter'ions long before she
took action. Her action in Tripoli
is exactly on a par with Austria's
high handed action over Bosnia and
Herzegovina. Turkey had to acquiesce or else fight Austria, which
she was absolutely unable to do. In
Bosnia and Herzegovina, the German
emperor stood beside his Austrial
ally in "shining armor" when Russia
asked questions. Today it is hardly
possible to avoid the conclusion that
he stands beside Italy, "blazing
sword in hand." The only question
remaining is at what price?
Cementing the Triple Alliance
Has the German emperor replied
tie lire "entente cordlale" by firmly
cementing the Triple Allance and deliberately helped to plan the present
coup in Tripoli, just as lie deliberately helped Austria to Bosnia and Herzegovina? The conclusion is natural and consistent with Germany's
policy of reforming the Holy Roman
Empire with the Prussian king at its
head.
When Austria occupied Bosnia and
Herzegovina there was every chance
of a blaze in the Balkans. Today,
now that Italy has actually declared
war, there is still more chance anil
to put that blaze out it is almost certain thai Austria will feel called upon
to take action. Again, Russia may
protest and again the "shining armor" appears. If Russia lines not
protest there is only Greal Britain
concerned, for French Interests
seem lo ire practically untoilched.
The scheme was worthy 'if Macht-
avelli. With France and Great Britain separated on a Macedonion question, Morocco disappears in smoke,
for Germany has no real interests
there, and Great Britain is left single handed against the Triple Alliance, to one of whom, Ita'y, she is
bound by ties of friendship. Under
the circumstances it is difficult to
define Britisii interests in the Balkans and it would be olmost impossible to stir France to sufficient enthusiasm to resist German and Austrian aggression in the Balkan's
merely for the sake of Great Britain's
trade route to the east.
What Will France Do?,
Tliree months ago the question of
whether Great Britain would stand
by France was paramount. That
question was answered in no uncertain tone. Now will France stand
witli Greal Britain in the new international situation created so suddenly by Italy? And if France determines to stand witli Greal Britain
wil1 Russia stand to her alliance with
France? if the tliree nations of the
"entente" can be- put into die position of supporting a non-Christian
nation, that for- years lias governed
.Macedonia atrociously, against the
"Triple AHiance" of Christian nations the sympathy of tlie world will
doubtless be on the side of the "Triple Alliance." Tlie advantages of
the situation are so obviously in favor of Hie "Triple Alloiance that it
is almost impossible to imagine
France, Russia or Great Britain raising a finger to save the remaining
portions of the Turkish Empire in
turope.
If Macedonia does not blaze and
Turkey concedes Tripoli to Italy
without striking a blog, Germany-
may be disappointed, but it is obvious that under such circumstances
Italy can impose such terms on Turkey as will pay' the price for German
support in her African adventure, if
such support has been given.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
EARLY DAYS IN THE WEST
Sir William Whyte, in a lucent interview, indulged In some interesting
reminiscences of the en fly days of
the C. P. R. "My retiring from active
work in connection with the Canadian Pacific Railway," said he, "recalls to mind many incidents of the
days of my early connection when
the C. P. R. had slowly but surely
carved it way across the Canadian
West.
"I have spoken ill figures of the
growth of the west, and the part the
Canadian Pacific Railway has played
In this growth. And the figures are
astounding. But one must forget
figures and other prosy data when
he wants to go back to the days in
the beginning. And In the beginning
of tilings with the C. P. R. there were
just as many trials and worries and
disappointments in the construction
camps at the different section houses
and anywhere any everywhere along
lue line.
Always Something New*
"It seemed that there was always
something new cropping up. The engineers who had the cutting of the
mountains for the road were always
having worries, real and Imaginary,
and there were many councils of war
held to discuss the grievance. A vast
wilderness bad to be remodelled practically, the Blackfeet Indians had to
be pacified and the gangs of men
along the line had to be kept in good
humor, and this was In the beginning
of the C. P. R. It called for a level
head, a large heart and a student of
human nature to do the nice adjusting of all these difficulties, and
Sir William Van Home was the man
of the hour who engineered the
C.P.R. over so many rough places in
its early history.
"I consider that it is one of the
most lamentable things in the records of the C. P. R. that the history
of the construction of tlie road has
never been written.
"No one knows the human side of
the building of the 0. P. R. as does
Sir William Van Home, and 1 have
asked him many times to take from
bis collection of reminiscences all the
matter that pertained to this road
and the road builders. I am looking
forward to the appearance of these
reminiscences, as will everyone else
> who .has played a part in the upbuilding   of   tlie   west.
"Perhaps one of the features of the
west that lingers particularly in my
mind is the buffalo bone collectors
who were scattered all over tlie
plains for so many years gathering
and burning  w 'tie care of prop
erty or concern for the comfort of
the dwellers of the plains, tlte bones
of the king of the wild prairie, the
buffalo.
"In those days there was no fine
for starting prairie fires, and we
had many annoying setbacks in constructing parts of the road as the
result of these bone hunters' carelessness.
"In talking over tire early history
of the country, one hears tlie remark constantly, 'Tlie climate of the
west is changing. It is not as cold
now as it was thirty years ago, etc'
"Well, the climate of this great
Western Canada has not changed one
iota. Conditions have changed. More
land each year is brought under cul-
Uivatio'n, houses are built, cities sping
up and the hard, frozzen ground is
cleared   of   stubble.
"In the building of the road we
had trouble off and on witli tramps
who come up here from across the
line. One particularly hot summer a
large gang of these men got out
through the west and became such
a nuisance that we had to get the
Nortinvest Mounted Police to talte a
hand in driving them out Of the
country. We could bring two charges
against them. Stealing a ride on tlie
trains was one, and having no visible
means of support was another.
"Colonel llerchinier was In charge
at the time in Reglna, and he sentenced half a dozen of tlie tramps
who were brought before him lo long
periods of hard labor, and in no time
tlie pest disappeared. I have often
thought mat the extreme cold of
Western Canada has kept out the indolent undesirables from across the
line.
"There is nothing I enjoy more "
continued Sir William, "than to sit
down and go back to the west—the
days when the C. P. R. had to struggle to meet its nay day, and when
the temperament of its construction
engineers hat! to be nurtured like a
hothouse plant. And as I look back
and recall the struggles and the
troubles averted, I feel that to have
helped even in a small way was a
privilege and  an  honor.
"We have a great empire here
in the west, in its infancy even today."

STOPS  COINING
United States Government Will Cense
From  Minting Gold   for  the
Next  Twenty  Years
Uncle Sam has a billion dollars in
gold in his coffers, and he will coin
no more of the precious metal for
twenty years. This is the reason why-
some of the mints are closed and
the output of others restricted. The
new policy of issuing certificates
against bullion has already saved the
government a large sum; morover,
the people prefer paper money to
coin. As bullion is used for export,
tlie mints are now running off only
silver coins and  pennies.
The United States buys gold at the
rale of $120,000,000 a year, so that
when it is time for him to begin
anew tbe coining on the yellow metal
the States will have close to three
and a half billions on hand.
And that is a sum that any one of
us would be proud to possess.

Helping Fatner
A preacher! raising his eyes from
his desk in the midst of his sermon,
was paralyzed with amazement to
see his small son in the gallery pelting his hearers In the pews below
with horse chestnuts. But while the
good man was preparing a frown of
reproof, the young hopeful cried out:
"You 'tend to your preaching,
daddy!    I'll keep 'em awake."

IMPROVING A PLANT
Suggestions Given in Connection With
a Civic Electric
Outfit.
Trade Magazine Tells What Has Been
Done in Other Places (o Work
Improvements
The Canadian Industrial Review,
In its last number, contains an article
dealing with the improving of a small
municipal lighting plant, which maybe of interest locally. It reads as
follows:
Recent observation of tlie operating conditions in a number of small
power plans suggests that the prac-
. tice of such stations must be brought
Into harmony with methods founds
successful in large installations, if
present sources of waste and inefficiency are to be removed. While it
may be necessary to avoid the refinements which frequently produce record figures in large stations, enough
of their methods remains to enable
substantial savings to he gained under skilled engineering treatment. A
recent investigation of the municipal
lighting plant at Marblehead, Mass.,
by C. W. Whiting of Boston indicates
certain lines of attack wliich not a
few stations of small capacity might
follow advantageously to secure
greater service reliability and lower
generating and distributing expenses.
It is well to bear in mind that however satisfactory a plant may be as
a mere source of current, close attention must be paid to the technical
features of its administration and development if anything like acceptable
service is to be expected.
The Marblehead station was found
to have boilers of excellent type for
the service required, the installation
being a horizontal return tubular one
without enough capacity to permit
rettention of one boiler as a spare
unit. Sources of inefficiency in the
operation of the boiler plant were
the presence of scale in considerale
quantities; failure to check the
weight of coal purchased or burned;
absence of analyses of the feed water, and lack of means of measuring
the quantity of water used by the
boilers. With one boiler lying idle,
the normal capacity available was
equivalent to 444 k.w. at the switchboard with Hie present arrangement
of the station. The maximum load
on the station last year was 340 k.w.
It was shown that an open-feed-water heater would assist in the removal
of scale forming material, and that
tlie use of a separate meter for boiler feeding would enable the performance of the boilers to be scrutinized
effectively. In place of a fireman's
estimate of tlie coal consumption during twenty-four hours, in eight of
which he is on duty, regular weighing was shown to be imperatively
necessary for definitely successful
operation,
The engines   in   the station  were
found to he well designed, well constructed and in good condition, with
a combined normal capacity of 363
horsepower.    Both were connected to
a line shaft by belting, and one was
operated non-condensing, developing
138 horsepower at the flywheel.  The
second  unit   was  a  cross-compound
condensing outfit rated at 225 horsepower  rt   the   flywheel.    The  belts
and    shafting    absorbed    about    30
horsepower, and at the peak of the
yearly  load   the   engines  were   run
at   51,6   per   cent   overload.     There
was no reserve, and If either unit had
been shut down during the peak, the
town would have been In comparative
darkness.    The generators consisted
of eight dynamos of assorted  types
and sizes, only one machine being of
the standard  2,800-VOlt, three-phase,
60-cycle design now common in central station work.    The direct current
arc machines used in the plain were
found to ire worth  little more than
their scrap value, being obsolete In
type, Inefficient and badly depreciated, witli hand regulation. Such equipment  jcapardi/.ed   the  service  by  Its
retention,    Although there was sufficient dynamo capacity in the plant
to handle  with   airy degree of flexibility on account of their character
and the shaft drive. The switchboard
was also to be found in need of remodelling, there being seven panels
of five different  types In its composition.    To  secure  better  results  It
was pointed out that the three watt-
hour    meters    installed    should    Ire
placed where easier reading could he
effected;  thai  a  watt-hour meter on
the street  lighting circuit would be
useful, and improved wiring on the
rear of the board advantageous.
The street lighting was found to
be very unsatisfactory, with unsteady
and poorly distributed units. It wns
found that by the use of so-called
dlreci current metallic arcs, with
mercury arc rectifiers, a total saving of $1,640 a year could  be made
in the operation of the street lighting
system, giving much better lighting
than at present. Tungsten incandescent lamps were advised for supplementary service on the streets.
Improvement in the methods of keeping the station records and In tlie
complete tabulation of data called
for on the blanks was also emphasized as necessary to the best service.
The plant kept no record of the
amount of cylinder and lubricating
oil, or the temperature of its feed
water. Tlie total estimated cost of
currenr al the switchboard, including
interest and depreciation on the cost
of tbe equipment, but not on the
cosl of tho land and buildin was
3.67 cents per k.w. hour for last year.
By making changes in the equipment
and adding two small steam turbines,
at a total eost of about $2S,uoo, it is
estimated thai the current can be
furnished at 8.10 cents, a saving of
r 5 1-2 per cent.
 o	
Road ami Trail Work
Gravelling has been completed on
Eighth Street at Stewart and tlie
clearing away of the big stumps on
Vancouver from Fifth to Ninth is
a'so done. This street will only need
a surface dressing of gravel to make
it one of the best in the town. Work
has been delayed somewhat on that
portion of tlie main Bear River wagon road around Muddy- Gulch, where
a high trestle bridge is Hearing com-
pletltion. On the Stewart-Portland
City pack trail the road gang has
about finished decking and the trail
will be ready next week. This last
piece of work will be of extreme benefit to those operating up the Salmon River as a pack outfit can be
loaded up here and taken direct to
the head of the valley.
 o	
' WILL WORK ALL WINTER
Several   of   the   Mines   at   Stewart
Camp Will Keep Up Operations
Until  Spring
Fully a half score of mines will
be undergoing development this winter, and of these at least three will
be outputting to the smelters, says
the Portland Canal Miner, referring
to the Stewart camp. Work at the
present time is being actively carried
on at the following properties: Northern Terminus, Portland Bear-River,
Red Cliff, Crown, Bitter Creek,
Stewart, Ben Bolt and Portland Canal up the main Bear River and the
Salmon-Bear River, Cascade Mining
Co., Indian Mines and Bruggy group
at the Salmon River. The Portland
Canal will contribute heavy shipments of silver-lead concentrates,
and It is safe to predict that the
Northern Terminus mine will send
out several shipments of high grade
silver ore. This last property is
now being opened up with a view to
placing it in the producing class early
in the winter, and a trail is being
finished to permit the raw-hiding of
the ore down to the railway at Red
Cliff.
Recent months have seen a marked
interest awaken both locally and on
the outside in the possibilities of the
Salmon River section of the district.
Early In the summer the Indian
Mines started operations and were
shortly followed by the Salmon-Bear
River Mining Co. The opening up
of immense surface veins of galena
ore, measuring from fifteen to twenty-five feet in size, caused a stampede of prospectors and among those
who were fortunate in locating good
showings was George Bruggy. His
property is now under a working
bond. Tlie Dilworth & Bunting
group lias been taken over by a Victoria company and permanent development is under way. Other properties, such as the Hercules group,
and the Big Missouri group, both
owned locally, have immense showings, and there are a score of other
claims that justify the expenditure of
capital. Those who have examined
the camp freely state that It has all
the ear-marks of becoming another
Coerir d'Alene—the greatest silver-
lead camp yet opened on the continent—and if I heir surmises are correct It is safe to say that Stewart
will, next spring, become the centre
of world-wide attraction for its galena  mineral  possibilities.

George Ado was talking at a June
wedding In Chicago about matrimony.
"Matrimony is perhaps a little too
much idealized," he said. "These
June brides, radiant under the white
veils in a glitter of June sunshine,
seem capable of changing enrth into
heaven, but as a matter of fact they
are not capable of anything of the
sort. ,
"1 am in hearty sympathy with Old
Brown, lo whom young Black said
at a wedding:
" 'A good wife can make a veritable angel of a man.'
" 'Yes, that's so,' old Brown
agreed. 'My wife came near making one of me with her first batch
of doughnuts,' "
THE OMINECA MINES
Indications Point to an Active Period
on the Hydraulic Properties
of North.
Those Interested In the Interior Holdings Have Made Arrangements
for  Plants
There is every indication that the
Omineca gold district is again to
come into prominence far exceeding
the interest manifested in it in the
early days when there was a rush to
these fields. At that time the difficulties in reaching the country were
much greater than at present. The
Huderle—Otterson syndicate with
whom are interested some local men,
seems to have a very good season's
work. The Omineca Miner of Hazelton says with respect to the year's
work as follows:
The attention of the mining world
will be directed anew to the Omineca
River placer district as a result of the
developments of the present season.
One of the most important enterprises in connection with the revival
of mining activity in this famous
camp is that undertaken by the Hud-
erle-Otterson Company, a syndicate
of mining men which owns leases covering all the unworked portion of
Manson Creek as far as working is
practicable. In the days of "hand
mining," when the Omineca placers
contributed many millions to the
world's wealth, Manson was the bonanza creek of the camp, and now
that conditions favor the installation
of plants to work the ground which
the individual miners were unable to
exploit, it is certain that the creek
will,return handsome profits.
John Huderle and George W. Otterson accompanied by Harry Walker, have returned from their field of
operations, after bringing to a successful conclusion the preliminary
work which was their season's task.
When interviewed by the Miner they
were most enthusiastic as to conditions in the Omineca diggings. Mr.
otterson states that their three half-
mile leases show about tliree million
cubic yards of pay gravel, which will
yield big dividends even on the large
capital it has been necessary to invest in plant and development.
The season's work consisted of diverting the main creek, improving
the ditch, and installing the hydraulic
elevator, in addition to fixing up pipe
lines, building cabins, and other necessary work. It was found that bedrock was from 12 to 16 feet deep.
The absence of drainage and
copious subterranean flow flow make
the preliminary work a matter of
difficulty. This has been overcome,
and everything is in readiness for
the beginning of actual mining in the
spring. For the first ninety days the
elevator alone will be used. By that
time the workings will be in condition for the Installation of an open
lift, which will handle 500 yards of
ground every twenty-four hours.
The company has one of the best
water powers in the country, has
plenty of supplies and provisions in
store, and the management is looking forward to a highly profitable
year. Prospecting shows that the
gold Is all of the "shot" variety, and
is quite coarse, being thus easily-
saved. We have Mr. Otterson's word
that the ground prospected carries
from one to seven dollars to the
yard.
Messrs. Huderle and Otterson
state that during the season a number of excellent quartz veins were
found in the vicinity of Manson
Creek, and exhibit fine specimens of
galena ore in corroboration. They
will leave for the outside on the next
steamer, expecting to return in time
to take the toboggan trail to the
creek  next spring.

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