Aldermen Discuss Altering Scene of Some
Contracts if Money is Not
Soon Forthcoming.
C. A. Frost of Chicago Acquires Moresby Island Areas
From Corlett Interests—Reginald .Brown of
Vancouver Acts as Intermediary
in Transaction.
.Situation  in  Opinion  of  Mayor  and
Others is Bright for Funds
Being Available
The immense timber areas on
Moresby Island held by the Corbett
interests has passed Into tbe hands
of C. A. Frost, a well known capitalist of Chicago. The deal was consummated In this city, Reginald
Brown, of Vancouver, acting as intermediary in connection with the
deal. The areas had been gone over
carefully by cruisers in the employ
of Mr. Frost who himself has spent
a day or two in the city in company
with Mr. Brown.
In connection with the limits is a
saw mill located at Queen Charlotte
City. This mill, it has been reported,
was to have been shut down. It has
continued to operate however, and
Mr. Frost before leaving last evening for the south stated that he expected to continue the running of the
mill. The limits are, of course, purchased as a speculation far beyond
the capacity of the mill at Queen
Charlotte City.
The area Involved is about 600,000
acres and while the exact price Is
not  made  known  the   cash    which
changed hands in connection with it
was $600,000. The area is very
heavily timbered and the investment
is one of the best in Northern British
Mr. Frost Is a man of wealth. He
is interested in coal measures In the
vicinity of Masset as well as in the
timber of the islands. Formerly he
was very closely identified with the
coal fields of Alaska. He has great
faith in the future of Northern British Columbia and was very much impressed with the outlook of Prince
Rupert. Speaking of its future he
said to the Journal that when the
G. T. P. was completed there could
not fail to be a magnificent city
built here.
Mr. Frost was formerly president
of the Chicago & Milwaukee Street
railway and is accustomed to dealing
with enterprises of a large character.
His acquisition of the timber lands of
Moresby Island will mean much for
this northern portion of the province
as he has the means and the ability
to handle it to the very best advantage.
William Manson, M.P.P, Has Returned
From a Trip Along Coast Visiting Industrial Centres.
The Various  Points  Show  Evidence
of Increased Prosperity—Needs
Looked Into
William Manson, M.P.P., has just
returned from a tour of that part of
his constituency which embraces Kitimaat, Swanson Bay, Cousin's Inlet,
Bella Coola and Namu. This trip was
undertaken for the purpose of looking into condition prevailing in the
different portions of the riding before the House opens so that he
might be in a position to deal with
various questions affecting the welfare of the constituency. At various
points visited Mr. Manson met the
settlers and in most of cases went
personally over the public works in
hand, hearing all the requests for
improved facilities in the way of
trails, bridges, etc.
At Kitimaat the reserved land
there is being surveyed under the
charge of J. Hirsch. The work will
not be completed this season but will
be continued next year. The intention is to open the area up to settlement. The land is of excellent quality resembling the rich valleys of the
Skeena. In the meantime the necessary trails are being kept in order to
facilitate the movements of the settlers whose land was crown
granted before the reserve was placed
Nothing in the way of extensive work
on the roads will be attempted until
after the survey Is completed and the
land thrown open to settlement.
Swanson Bay was visited by the
member for the district and then he
went on to Cousin's Inlet. At this
point the Ocean Falls Company, Ltd.,
is making very marked progress in
their work, a force of about 200 men
Is busy doing the preliminary work
on the pulp proposition that is to be
built here. The company intends to
spend about $1,500,000. At present
a sawmill is being Installed to get the
lumber ready for the wharves and
Other necessary works. It is the intention to employ about 1,000 men
when all Is ln operation. A magnificent falls will supply the power
needed and the company plans operations on a large scale.
The management is giving a preference to married men in connection
with their work so as to Induce settlement at the works. As a result
there has been need for a school at
the place already and one was established by the government this summer. Thomas Lelth, the school inspector, visited the school while Mr.

lockout of 130,000 employees
therefore continues.
Manson was there and found things
in good shape.
Cousin's Inlet promises soon to be
a hive of industry and will be one of
the manufacturing points tributary to
Prince Rupert, helping to put this
city on a sound commercial basis.
At Bella Coola Mr. Manson went
through the whole settlement looking
into the needs for roads, bridges, etc.
This settlement, which dates back
about sixteen  years, is a very pros-

Only in an incidental way did the
subject of the financial situation in
the city come up at the council meeting last evening. Aid. Mclntyre called attention to certain aspects of it
but in the absence of the chairman
of the streets committee, Aid. Lynch,
he did not move in the matter at all.
He was further assured by the mayor
that there was every prospect that
the situation would be cleared and
that there would probably be a satisfactory answer from the Bank of
Montreal so that the work could be
proceeded with without much delay.
If the bank did not give a satisfactory answer he felt that the money
could be obtained from other sources
and there would be little delay in
carrying on the work.
The situation which has arisen will
not affect the ■ work already under
contract, the bank having no disposition to hold up anything under way.
The sole fear that the bank appears
to have is that there might be some
trouble in placing the debentures of
the city should there be a report
abroad that there was a difference
between the company and the city.
The mayor and the members of the
council are awaiting the reply from
the bank upon the representations
that are being made and are most
sanguine that it will be satisfactory.
Aid. Mclntyre wished to call attention to the anomalous position in
which the city was placed as a result
of the financial situation that had
arisen. He had no doubt that Prince
Rupert would not suffer in the long
run, but just at the present time the
situation was peculiar. He wished to
call attention to the fact that por>
tions of section one were under contract. There were other portions
that could not be let just at once as
a resu't of the bank's stand. Under
a local Improvement system and to
this Instance, the area of local Improvement was the whole of section,
one. The spirit of the law was that
all the work should be in progr<.is
at about the same time. Second avenue was under contract while other
parts were not being graded.
There seemed only two alteratives
under the law, these were either to
cease work on Second avenue, which
he did not want  to see done,  or  to
First Work in Handling the Portland
Canal Product is Now in
C. H. Dickie   Returned   Last   Night
Pleased With the Conditions
Attending It
Among those who went south by
the Prince eGorge last evening was
C. H. Dickie, of Duncan, the president of the Portland Canal Mining
company. Mr. Dickie has been in the
Stewart camp for some weeks seeing
the final work done in connection
with the installing of the concentrator at the company's property. Six
days ago the concentrator started
work and has been running continuously ever since. Everything in connection with it is working well and
Mr. Dickie left the camp highly
pleased with the results. He came
south by the Bruno to Prince Rupert
and then continued south by the
larger vessel.
The concentrator is doing excellent
work taking a very high percentage
of the mineral values out of the ore.
The working was all that Mr. Dickie
expected and even exceeded his hopes
in the values which were extracted
from the ore. Everything of value
was being taken out which is highly
satisfactory not only to the Portland
Canal company but also to all the
others operating in the camp.
The concentrator has a capacity of
fifty tons a day, but at the present
time this will not be handled by the
company. In a very short time when
all Is in running order it will be run
to capacity. There is a large tonnage on hand in the bunkers at the
present which will be used to keep
the mill running. The mine itself
is now laid out in shape to mine
about fifty tons a day if required and
there Is a considerable amount on
the dump. With an aerial tram line
from the mine to the concentrator
the company is able to handle the ore
very cheaply and with expedition.
Mr. Dickie, who is one of the most
popular mining men in the province
of British Columbia, went south feel
ing quite happy over the conditions
at the mine. At this port last evening he was the recipient of many
con aatulations on the successful
«■ rying out of his scheme.
Energetic Group of Capitalists Has Acquired Control of
Vast Area and Investigations are Now Being
Made Preparatory to Starting
Work Shortly.
For a few days this week there
lias been a most important group of
men In the city who may have much
to do with the development of this
northern part of the province. Included among the company Is Mr.
Reginald C. Brown of Vancouver,
one of the most energetic of the financial agents in that city, and president of the- B. C. company. Mr.
Brown is yet a young man and has
been identified with important deals
in the province for a number of years
past and has important interests in
the north.
It was through his agency that the
deal mentioned in another column by
which the vast timber areas on Moresby Island passed into the hands of
Mr. Frost of Chicago. Mr. Frost accompanied Mr. Brown north on the
present trip. After the completion
of the transaction for the taking over
of the timber, Mr. Frost went soutii
last night. Mr. Brown has gone over
to Masset where he will look into
matters connected with his coal lands
on Greham Island.    He was accom
panied by Alex. Faulds, the well
known mining engineer of Vancouver, who has been In the north for
some little time and who was met
by Mr. Brown by apointment here.
Together they will go into the subject of the starting of work on the
Mr. Brown owns 25,000 acres of
coal lands in that part of the province, while Mr. Frost has acquired
about 35,000 acres. The Intention is
to join u]i some other coal lands
there and bring in about 100,000
acres which will be fully developed.
Mr. Brown is satisfied that he has
by far tbe most valuable coal holdings on the islands and for that matter In the north. He intends to have
them fully developed.
Mr, Brown was formerly private
secretary to Lord Strachcona. He
has thus been accustomed to dealing
in business on a large scale and Is
adapted to an enterprise such as this
with which he is associated. In Mr.
Frost he has as an associate one of

about the arrest and conviction of
the person or persons responsible for
the explosion and fire In the Los Angeles Times building.
While there has been a suggestion
made that it might be attributable to
sympathizers with union labor owing
to the fact that General Otis, the
proprietor of the Times employed
non-union labor, the Typographical

The city council held a short sitting last evening, all the business being cleared off in good time, when
the council rose in order to allow the
city clerk to catch up with the work
of his department. The Influx of the

A  very  sad  accident  occurred   on
Shawatlans  lake  on   Friday  evening
which lias cast a gloom over this city.
In  consequence of the  swamping of
the   canoe   in which were A. Agnew
and three of his assistants engaged in
the work of surveying for tlie permanent water works for the city, two
men,  11.   Gilroy  and   A.   Allen,   lost
I their lives.    The other two, Mr.  Ag-
I new and David Blane had a very narrow escape.    The two men  who lost
their lives were very well known  In
the city and were popular.    They had
both lived here for some time and engaged  in  survey   work.     They   were
good steady men and will be missed
by their wide circle of acquaintances.
No blame seems to attach  to any
one in  the  matter.     The  party  had
been  at  work  during  the  day  taking soundings In the channel across
which the water pipe will be carried
to reach this city from  Lake Wood-
worth.    They were returning to the
camp  at  Lake  Woodwortli   and   had
taken   tlie  canoe,  a   good   Peierboro
one to pass up Lake Shawatlans. The
weather was fine up lo within a few
minutes  of  the  accident.     As     they
rounded  a  polnl   a   sudden    squall
struck  them.     Mr.   Agnew  gave  instructions   to   pull   In   closer   to   the
shore.     The  Instructions  were  being
obeyed when a wave washed over the
canoe filling it and throwing all Into
the water,    Mr. Agnew with his wits
eevr about him, again thought of the
safety of the party  under  him  and
told them to stay by the canoe. Hlane
seems to have obeyed these Instructions, although on aeocunl   of    the
boat turning so easily in  the water
lie had a difficult time In doing It.
Gilroy, who was an excellent swimmer, appears to have struck out for
the shore which was only about 100
yards distant. Allen sank almost at
once but came to the surface when
Agnew seized him by the collar of his
coat and dragged him to the canoe
felling him to hold on to It. He
was unable to do this, however, owing to the turning of the canoe, and
again made an effort to save him, but
he was then excited and did not know
how to aid himself. He seized Agnew about the throat and both men
went down In the water. Agnew
was powerless to assist his companion  in the position  in  which     they

Appointment of  Commissioner   in   the
Province is Advocated-
Importance of Having Such an Agent
Has Been I'm  Before Many
Prominent  .Men
To secure the apopintmenl of a
British trade commissioner for British Columbia to be Stationed In either
Victoria or Vancouver, is an objeel
which has been engaging the attention of Mr. Graham Forester for some
time past and his efforts have led lo
a sheaf of correspondence between
himself and prominent politicians in
the Old Land. The proposal has and
is receiving serious attention in
Great Britain and it seems likely
that if further representations were
made by the amalgamated boards of
trade of the province as well as other
mercantile and industrial interests
that the desired appointment might
be made by the British government.
Letters have been addressed lo the
Right Hon. Sydney Buxton, postmaster-general; to Colonel Seeley, M.P.,
secretary for the colonies; to Mr. E.
Crawshaw Williams, M.P., secretary
to the Right Hon. Lloyd eGorge; to
Mr. Norton Griffiths, M.P.; to Mr. J.
Allen Baker, M.P., and to the Right
Hon. John Burns. Replies showing
considerable interest in the proposal
have been received in every instance
and the matter has now been brought
before the notice of the president of
the British Board of Trade.
The reasons given by Mr. Forester
for the appointment of a British
trade commissioner in this province
are of a forceful character. Canada
must to all Intents and purposes be
entirely Americanized under such
great influence as the practical possession of the country by American
capitalists. He says that Americans
will be the employers of labor and
that they will favor American employees to the exclusion of those of
the British race.
"As a British resident for some
years in British Columbia and Alberta," says Mr. Forester, "I look
with the greatest concern, from a
patriotic point of view on what will
be practically the annexation of this
the richest and most prosperous part
of the British birthright by the great
influx of American capital—and the
result which must be brought about
by this peaceful, yet none the less
effective invasion—namely the loss of
this great market In the future both
for British capital and British workmen. In every direction American
capitalists are spying out the land,
securing the pick of the timber
rights, lands for farming, minerals,
instituting industries, while the
smaller class of American capitalists
are opening stores, buying farms, t'.nd
the representatives o' American
mnrufacturers a.-> pushing American tcods, while of British represen
totivea you hardly ever meet one in
t'.e i lovince.
"Britisli capitalists must wake up
or they will find that the money they
have and are expending in works in
this country will be lost because the
markets which they should have retained are lost to them. A portion at
least of the profits accruing to British
capital in Canada should be devoted
to the development of this most
western country. There are numbers of opportunities for the Investment of British capital In undertakings which will largely benefit the investor and also develop and enable
Britishers to find homes.
"I suggest that the remedy to the
American invasion would He In the
appointment of one or more trade
commissioners in the province, to be
under government control, with no
Interest to serve except that of Great
Britain, and tliey should be Independent of any business other than that
for the promotion of British Interest s. The present trade eorrespond-
denls In Canada, although useful In
their way, have their own businesses
to attend to, represenl certain individual firms—British or otherwise—
nnd therefore arc not In a position
to do the best for the general Improvement of British trade In Canada. An independent commissioner
acting under the British government
would be able to devote Ills time, Interest and ability lo tho objects for
which lie is apoplnted, in addition to
which ns an absolutely Independent
servant of the British government Ids
rec immendatlons would carry much
more weight in Inducing British trade
to find a vent here. His very appoint ment would create a feeling of
confidence In the resources of the
province which does not now exist in
Greal Britain."
Mr. forester draws attention to
the fact 'hat efforts are now being
made to expand the trade relations
between Australia and Canada and it
is proposed to locate a commercial
agent in Vancouver to represent the
Commonwealth. He contends that
Britisli interests here are much more
important than those of Australia,
that the trade between British Co-
liiniljii ai:d the Motherland is infinitely larger than that between the
province and Australia, and his contention therefore is that it is much
more importanl that a British trade
lommisiionni' should be located here,
ha.n tiie currying out of the proposal which is now engaging the attention of the Australian authorities.
.dr. Forrester is continuing his cor-
respondence with officials in the Old
Land, and is anxious that his representations should be backed up by
the commercial and industrial Interests In the province.
Trial Shipment Sent From Hazelton
(o Trail Satisfactory
Returns have been received of the
values contained in the trial shipment of about four tons of Lead King
ore sent to the Trail smelter several
weeks ago says the Omineca Herald.
To be exact, the drywelght of the
ore was S,22!i pounds, assaying 92.4
ounces of silver, 38.5 per cent lead,
and 25.G per cent zinc. Freight from
Hazelton to Trail consumed $91.42
of the values, and the treatment
j of $20.50 per ton took $43.18,'leaving a balance of $109.19, without
taking into consideration the lead
bounty of three-quarters of a cent
a pound on the lead, which will
amount to a total of $23.75 more.
This is a remarkable showing.
Considering the fact that the ore was
practically picked up on the surface within three months after the
claims were located, It is still more
remarkable. No attempt, was made
to sort the ore and after it was landed in town last fall, people who
thought they knew did not hesitate
to say it would not pay its way to the
The high percentage of zinc is
proof that ther was no attempt to
sort, as a reduction in tne zinc would
have been the first thing sought in
that line.
Customs   Followed   in   Some  of  the
Countries of the World
England is the only country in
which the custom of kissing the Bible
in the course of taking an oath as
witness or jurymen has ever obtained. It has often been objected to as
lacking in cleanliness.
In Spanish courts taking the oath
is quite a complicated matter, says
a writer in Answers. The witness
goes down on his right knee and
places his hand on the open Bible.
The question is put, "Will you swear
by God and the Holy Gospels that
you will speak the truth in answer
to whatever questions you may be
asked?" He answers, "I do swear!"
He is then told, "If you tell the truth
God will reward you. If you do not
tell the truth He will requite you."
In French courts a crucifix hangs
on the wall above the judge's head.
While taking the oath the witness
raises his r|ght hand toward this
In the oath administered In the
Scottish courts there Is added after
the words "Almighty God," "and as
I shall answer to Him at the last
great Day of Judgment.
The Norwegian oath is certainly
The witness, when being sworn,
raises the thumb and first two fingers of his right hand. These three
represent the Trinity. He repeats a
long formula, ending with the wish
that if he swears falsely he may be
punished eternally In hell, and his
earthly possessions be destroyed.
The Mohammedan swears by the
Koran, which Is his Bible. As he
lakes the oath he bows slowly down
till his forehead touches Ihe open
hook before him.
While Ihe Chinaman Is swearing
lo tell nil he knows, an officer of j
tiie court beheads a cock In front of
him, or breaks a saucer, or blows
out a candle. These three ceremonies are symbols, standing for the
fate that the witness may expect to
rail upon himself, body and soul, If
the evidence he gives Is not true.
Chinamen are nol Infrequently called us witnesses in the East End of
London, where they have a flourishing colony. When one enters the
box, nn officer of the COurl hns usually lo go out to the nearest rhlnn
shop to buy n saucer,
" Sometimes, too, they may prefer
to blow out the candle: but. the be-

not find favor In our humanitarian
Scientific Party on Arctic Shores Were
Driven to Eat
Bears   and   Wolverines    Raided   the
Caches .Made—N. Stefiinssoii Was
Willi Bedford Party
That even shoestrings look good
to men hungry in the far north, with
their food caches raided and ruined
by bears and wolverines, is shown in
letters written to Hermon C. Bum-
pus, director of the New York
.Museum of Natural History, by Dr
Rudolph Anderson and Vihljaiinr
Stei'ansson, who left New York for
the Arctic zone in May, 1908. The
scientists, who are making extended
ethnological and zoological collec
tions on the shores of Arctic America for the museum, have travelled
four hundred miles east of the mouth
of the Mackenzie river.
The last news from Mr. Stefansson
was dated March 13, 1910. In his letter the explorer tells of a trying journey up the Morton river, which started on November 25, 1909. Six persons were in the party and they carried two days' provisions. During
the one trip, which took fifteen days,
hunting was bad. Each bank of the
river was hunted, but not a single
animal was found.
The party ate whale tongue, which
owing to its fibrous nature and to
the presence of sea salt, was very
sickening. When the tongue was
gone the men ate sealskins, deer
skins—which they used for sole
leather—and the tough skin laces
used for their snowshoes. There was
sufficient seal oil with the expedition
The oil, about a teaspoonful a day,
was consumed to keep away the
ravages of hunger. It was taken with
deerskin or feathers, as few of the
men could take it "straight."
Dr. Anderson wrote from Fort
MacPherson on July 15. He tells of
the hardships encountered by the
party and of finding a partly eaten
carcass of a caribou, which supplied
enough meat for three or four meals.
When it was gone the men lived on
White-fish blubber taken "straight"
and a spoonful each of portions of
the animal's stomach, taken with oil
at each meal. The stomach contained a peck of well masticated moss
and grass. It was found of little
nutritive value, but did wonders in
helping the members of the expedition to eat the oil.
The travellers made camp one day
at a time when the spirits of every
one was low. Dr. Anderson asked
"Jimmy," one of the Esquimau boys,
what was the name of the district.
The boy knew of no name, but he
suggested that it be called Kakwl-
aluk, the "place of no food."
The two scientists have made interesting observations on the native
fauna and geography of the regions
through which they are travelling.
They joined forcer on November 20,
1909. In September Mr. Stefansson,
with two Esquimaus, landed at Cape
Parry, Arctic America, from the
whaling vessel Rosie H. He spent the
winter in the vicinity of Franklin
Dr. Anderson pushed forward by
Bledge from Toker Point along the
coast to Franklin Bay, where he joined his colleague about fifteen miles
northwest of Horton river. On March
14 Dr. Anderson left Cape Parry and
went by sledge to Fort MacPherson
for supplies and mail. He reached the
post on June 28. In the meantime Mr.
Stefansson set out to visit the natives
of the Copper Mine river region, two
or three hundred miles east of Cape
N. Stefansson was one of the leading mebers of the expedition which
sailed from Victoria a few years ago
in the schooner Bedford. They passed through Behring straits safely,
but the vessel was lost ln Arctic Icepack. Captain Mikklesen was in

Congressional  Candidate   in   Alaska
Wants it Handed Hack
Mr. C. W. Hartman, hanker, of
Clarksburg, just returned from a
three-months' trip through the Yukon territory on business and pleasure, told a reported recently an interesting incident of u labor candidate for election to congress from
Alaska, a Mr. O'Conor, declaring (hat.
if elected, lie would do his best to
hand- the seaport or Skagway back
to Canada, where It properly belonged.
"It speaks well for Hie progress of
civilization when a candidate for
congress has Ihe courage to openly
speak the unpleasant   truth   to    an
American audience," says Mr. Hartman. "Mr. O'Connor was a fellow
apssenger with me for about eight
days on the river and ocean vessels
by which I returned, and I had frequent conversations with him concerning the relations between the two
countries. Like most Americans, lie
thought his country had some grievances with England, but he strongly
denounced the methods adopted by
Senator Lodge and the other eminent
jurists appointed by President
Roosevelt to act with those appoint
ed by Great Britain to interpret the
Russian treaty of 1818, defining the
Alaskan boundary. He criticised their
action, especially in publishing the
statement that they would not aban-
don any land they had taken posses
sion of, no matter bow the treaty
read, and said it was done to impress
Lord Alverstone with the idea that
unless the United States retained the
part of Canada they wrongfully held,
there would be friction between the
two nations.
"After saying that right-minded
Americans do not want territory obtained in that way, he further Intimated his belief that Senator Lodge
was acting in the Interests of the
White Pass railway, whose headquarters, according to that decision, are
in the United States. As the bulk
of the line is in Canada, the result
is that neither country can control
the freight rates, and the miners of
both Alaska and the Yukon have to
pay extortionate rates. I pointed out
that If all the land had remained in
Canada's possession these extortionate freight, rates would be quickly
remedied through the railway com
mission. Later I saw the Juneau
papers with the report of his speech.
Canadian Party From the Field Ar
rived  on  the   Way   South
The Princess Royal, which arrived
from Skagway on Saturday on her
way south, had on board one of the
Alaskan boundary survey parties under the charge of Fred Lambert. This
party had been engaged on the section from Ladue Creek to White
River on the portion of the boundary
between the Yukon and Alaska south
of the Yukon River. Included among
the party were D. to. Eaton, representing the United States government, W. J. Johnston, of Victoria,
and B. Alexander, the poet of the
boundary survey.
The weather during the summer
was reported to have been splendid

School Children Have  Opportunity To
Gain Admissions By Sending
Some of the Features of the National
Display of Fruit to be Held
in Vancouver
The world Is going to be influenced largely In Its opinion of the horticultural resources and possibilities
of Canada and more particularly of
the province of British Columbia
and of the Pacific northwest by what
is to be seen at Ihe first Canadian
National Apple Show to be held at
Vancouver October 31 to November
6 Inclusive, and the world's judgment
is not going to be a disappointment
for the exhibition promoters because
any and al districts which are growing apples will be represented at the
big show.
The great apply exhibition will be
housed In the Vancouver Horse Show
Association building near the north
■entrance to Stanley Park and a large
temporary structure covering all of
Alberni street for a distance of a
block. The buildings will have a
grand total of 98,040 square feet of
floor space.
The public will have easy awess
to the buildings which can be readied by the Pender, Robson and Davie
streel car lines.
The big arena of the Horse Show
building will be used to display the
district, limited lo two box, two barrel, two basket, two jar and iwo plate
contest, and box exhibits. The show
ring is 7B x 199 feet, containing Hearing 15,001) siiuurc feet. The exhibits
will lie arranged around the ring upon un Incline of ■!•"• degrees, 'having a
perpendicular off about 12 feet and
12 feel liase. This arrangement will
give a continuous display L2 feet
wide, 12 feel high and approximately
450 feet long and will have the appearance of a veritable cascade of
apples, having a full of ,17 feet without beginning nnd wiihoui end.
which with the beautiful colorings
of the king of trull will present a
scene never before equalled in Ih'u
hislorj of Un- world.
Completely surrounding the show
ring are the spectators' galleries having a total seating capacity of 3,000.
A splendid mid remarkable feature
will be that every portion of the exhibit can be seen from any seat In
the galleries.
Willi In the charming circle of the
apple hosts will be stationed upon a
raised platform the 4Sth Highlanders' Military Band of forty pieces,
the most famous band of Canada ami
one of the leading bamts of the
world. This great musical organization has been secured by the management exclusively for the First Canadian National Apple Show at an initial expense of $5,000. The band
will come direct from Toronto, to
Vancouver, and will return direct to
Toronto without playing concert en-,
gagement-s at any intermedial.? point.
The carload exhibits and plate displays will be housed In a temporary
building to be erected on Alberni
street. This building will be 300
feel long, and longer if required. The
carload exhibits will be arranged on
a 17 foot incline of 4 5 degrees
around Hie four walls of the building
Tables six feel wide will occupy
the centre of the building and will
extend Its entire length. Thej will
be specially constructed stair • ilc s

would have to walk forty-seven and
three-fourthB miles to get. it.
There are 36 to 225 apples ln a
box according to size and the manner in which they are packed. The
average would, therefore, be about
130 aples to each box or a total of
1,638,000 apples in the entire show.
These apples w'l average about two
and one-quarter inches in diameter,
and if they were played In a single
row It would be 698 miles long. If
a little boy should start to walk to
the end of the row, and walk seven
and one-half miles a day, it would
require three months and three days
to accomplish the feat.
The owners of these apples will
receive $25,000 In prizes or nearly
two dollars per box. After the show
is over the apples will sell readily
at two to five dollars per box, say,
an average of $3.50 per box or a
total of $44,100. Therefore the exhibitors will receive approximately
$70,000 for the apples exhibited at
Canada's first National Apple Show.
Now then suppose that a greedy
lit tie boy who lives in London should
ask his papa to buy all of those apples, how much would it cost liis papa
at a shilling apiece, and how long
would it take that little boy to eat
all of them, eating six apples a day?
The first Canadian National Apple
Show management will give a season
ticket entitling the holder to two admissions daily to the first 100 school
boys and school girls of Vancouver
who send In the correct answer lo the
above problem, and a prize diploma
to the Vancouver school whose "pupils
send in the most correct answers.

A   similar   offer   is   made   to   the

might have an unobstructed view in
rounding curves. The firebox required would have a grate surface of
175 square feet, large enough to
serve as a garage for an automobile,

In connection with the general regret that will be felt thai two young
men engaged in the service of the
city should have lost their lives, it is
gratifying to know that It was in no
way due to any shortcoming on the
part of the works department of the
city. The party engaged in making
the survey for the city waterworks
according to the information given
out at the council meeting, are well
provided with boats for their work.
It is probable that the canoe in use
that day was used by them as it was
much more easily handled and was
considered quite safe under all ordinary conditions.
The drowning of Messrs. Gilroy
and Allen will be regretted by all.
While no blame can attach to any
one, Mr. Agnew, the engineer in
charge, seems to have given another
exemplification of wonderful presence
of mind under most trying conditions. His manly action in staying
right by his subordinates even at
the risk of his own life until every
chance of doing anything to save
them had passed is certainly worthy
of the highest praise.
Today the Jewish portion of the
community is observing its New
Year. The same characteristics that
make the people of this nation close
observers of all the ancient customs
of their race, also make them first
class pioneers. Wherever modern
civilization is being pushed the Jew
is found taking an important part
in all the responsibilities that attaches to it. In the newer parts of
this western country the people of
this race are ever in the forefront
ready to endure all the hardships
and inconveniences which are entailed in building up a strong community. In public spirit there can
be nothing said against the Jewish

mean that the former bylaw would
have to be descinded.
He suggested that the only part
of Second avenue that really required
grading at this time was from McBride to Eighth street. The part
beyond Eighth street did not need
to be done now. The contractor might
be recompensed for what he had done
and his work confined to other parts.
The Bank or Montreal had broken
faith with the city after giving promise that the money would be forthcoming. The work was undertaken
on the ground that tho bank would
supply the money. A loan company
that prompted action with a private
Individual would have made a recompense for Tailing to comply with
the conditions.
His Worship thought that the matter might stand just now. He believed from what he heard that day
that if the Bank of Montreal did not
come through with the finances Ihere
were other sources from which the
money would be available. He believed the bank would be satisfied to
alliance the funds.
Aid. Hildltch was satisfied with the
stand ul Aid. Mclntyre. It was not
quite fair lo spend money beyond
Eighth street when the congested

Aid. Mclntyre said lie did nol wish
to press his views if there was a prospect nf the money coming through
witli a very short delay.
Aid. Mobley thoughl it might be
possible if a long delay relative to
the funds were to follow that, Mr.
Watson might be induced to switch
his contract from the point beyond
Eighth street on Second avenue to
another part of the city where the
business was more congested. He,
however, thought that it might be as
well lo let it stand now until they

"    C. P. R. TO TRY OIL
Oil may soon replace Vancouver
Island coal as fuel on all the coastwise fleet of the Canadian Pacific
railway, including the Princess Charlotte and the Princess Victoria. A
series of experiments to determine
its efficiency and alleged superiority
•will be undertaken during the coming
■winter. If they prove to be as successful as expected, oil will also be
uitilized on the Empress liners, as
well as in the engines on the Pacific
division of the railway.
For several months' officials of the
company, acting under instructions
from the management, have been engaged in obtaining data respecting
the alleged advantages of oil over
bituminous coal for steaming purposes.
Their enquiries have resulted In
the submission of an offer from a
large California oil company to supply oil at a certain fixed price covering a term of years. The oil people
agree to deliver the fuel at any point
indicated. They have augmented
their proposition by supplying an extensive report tending to show the
snperiority of oil over coal as a fuel
based on actual results on oceangoing steamers and railway locomotives In California. It is also represented that the use of oil effects a
saving varying from 40 to 60 per
cent over coal as regards actual costs.
If the experiments prove successful
Vancouver will be selected as the
point for the location of an oil-storage tank, the California company
agreeing to erect the tank at its own
expense in the event of a ...ee site
being granted. The site would probably be some convenient point in the
yards contiguous to the waterfront,
whence the oil could be conveyed In
pipes to the various piers.
The company is also in possession
of a report showing the economy effected by adopting oil for fuel on the
steamer Iroquois, now under charter,
and used as a substitute steamer on
the Vancouver-Seattle run. It Is said
to be extremely satisfactory. The
boilers of the various steamers will
not hnve to be reconstructed If oil
as a fuel Is adopted. The only
change to be made will be the Installation of a feed pipe from which
the oil under pressure Is discharged
in a fine vapor. The same conditions
apply  to  railway  locomotives.
The idea of using oil by the C. P.
R. was first mooted In the spring of
1909, when the Princess Charlotte
failed to make the same speed she
developed at her speed trials in Scotland.
The White Pass & Yukon company is apparently increasing its business and has taken steps to prepare
for a heavier traffic next summer
than In the past. A new steamer Is
being built according to the reports
brought from the north. The keel
Is laid at White Horse and the steam
er will be ready for next year's opening of the Yukon.
This will give the company five
steamers in the summer service connecting with the railway and running to Dawson.
The recent change in the schedule
of the Grand Trunk Pacific boats has
proved a veritable boon to weekenders who wish to spend Sunday in
Victoria, says the News-Advertiser.
The Prince Rupert does not leave
until two ln the afternoon on Saturdays, which is late enough to permit
business men to round out the week's
work. The steamer reaches the capital before seven o'clock. Returning
she leaves at midnight Sunday, and
gets back to her dock ln Vancouver
early on Monday morning. Although but two trips have been made
on the new schedule, the public are
rapidly becoming familiar with the
advantage it offers for Sunday night's
boat brought a large list from Victoria. This helps also relieve the
congestion on the Charmer, which
has prevailed all Bummer.
The Lobnitz rock-crushing vessel,
being built for the Dominion government at Renfrew, Scotland, for use In
the removal of obstructions In Victoria harbor is to be completed ln
November, and will be shipped, probably by one of the Blue Funnel line
steamers. The rock-crushing vessel
is being built in sections and will
be put together in Victoria harbor by
employees of the constructors. Samples of the rock of the obstructions
to be removed were forwarded to the
Lobnltz company, and the hammers
used for crushing were made specially to deal with this material. The
craft is worked similarly to a stamp
mill, a twenty-ton hammer being
dropped at the rate of ten times a
minute by steam, pulverising the
rock. The hammer weighs twenty
When the rock crusher Is put together in Victoria harbor, probably
In February next, work will be started on Beaver and Tuzo rocks and
other obstructions In the vicinity of
Songhees Point, and on the east side
of the Indian reserve.
The steamer Princess May will be
repaired at the British Columbia
marine railway company's yards at
Esquimau, arrangements having
been made between the underwriters
and the Esquimau company yesterday afternoon. The Princess May has
been towed back to Esquimau from
the Inner harbor and work started.
The amount to be paid for the repairs to the steamer is no divulged,
but it is understood to be lower than
the tender submitted. When tenders
were invited for the repairs to the
steamer seven shipbuilding firms submitted bids, which ranged from $85,-
000, bid by the B. C. Marine Railway company, to $143,500 asked by
Hali Bros, of Eagle harbor. Two Victoria   firms,  one   Vancouver,     three
Seattle and one Portland firm submitted bids. When the amounts ot
the tenders were cabled to the underwriters in England the amounts were
considered excessive by the insurers,
and Capt. W. H. Logan, special agent
of the London Salvage association,
who is in Victoria looking after the
repairing of the steamer and settling
the dispute which has arisen with regard to the Yucatan, was Instructed
to enter into the best arrangement
he could.
He met the Bullen company, and
an agreement satisfactory to both repairers and underwriters was reached yesterday. The stranding of the
Princess May will prove expensive to
the underwriters, who have already
spent $35,000 in the salvage work
and Incidental expense. She will cost
the insurers in the neighborhood of
$115,000 befoer she is returned to
the owners. About sixty plates are
to be handled by the B. C. Marine
Railway company, about two-thirds
of them to be renewed, a new propelled bracket and tall shaft is needed, many frames, beams, floors, etc.
and ther is much interior fitting to
be restored.

The Princess Royal on her trip
south this week had on board four
insane people who were being taken
south. On the way down, although
supposed to be carefully guarded,
one of them evaded his guard and
jumped through a window into the
water. The water seemed to bring
him to his senses again for he struck
out keeping himself afloat in a manner which indicated that he was a
first class swimmer. He was recovered but not until he had been a considerable time in the water. On the
way from Dawson the same man
leaped overboard into the Yukon.
Professor Fcsscnden Tells of Experiment With Wind and Sun Light
The fast turbine liners, Yale and
Harvard, which have been operated
by the Metropolitan Steamship company between New York and Boston,
on the outside route, have been sold
for service between Seattle and British Columbia ports and are to leave
on October 15 to be delivered either
at Seattle or Victoria. Announcement to this effect comes from Boston, where an official statement of
the sale has been made by the owners. The purchasers are not divulged, and shipping men have been
busily guessing.
The report is current that the two
fast turbine liners from the Atlantic
have been acquired by the Puget
Sound Navigation company for service between Seattle and Victoria,
and Seattle and Vancouver, to run
In opposition to the steamers Princess Victoria and Princess Charlotte
of the Canadian Pacific Railway company. Charles E. Peabody, vice president of the Puget Sound Navigation
company, when asked regarding this
report, refused to deny or affirm It.
"I have no Information to give out,"
e said.
In some quarters it was believed
that the two palatial eastern steamers had been acquired by the Canadian Northern Railway company for
a coast service. The two vessels are
under United States register, but
could be transferred to British register on payment of duty. The two
vessels have been for sale for some
time past. They have not been profitable In the Atlantic coast's service,
passengers not caring to make the
outside trip around Cape Cod when
the inner routes into Narraganset bay
offer as good service, with but a
single change. The buyers would find
a bargain in the two steamers, which
compare favorably with the two
three-funnel liners of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and the Princess liners
of the Canadian Pacific railway.

The Camosun is laid up for repairs
in the dry dock and will not make
her usual run to this port on Friday
While at the dry dock she will undergo a thorough overhauling, repairing and painting, so that she will

Professor Fessenden, a Canadian
gave before the British Association
a most lucid and intelligible account
of experiments he has made and of
theories he has worked out to show
that, both wind-force and sun-heat
can be used to produce electrical
energy.. "If we put up a number of
windmills along the cliffs around
England," he declared, "we could
get by their means the power required to run all the railways, manufactories, electric-light stations, etc.,
in Great Britain. With solar energy
we should not do quite so well," he
added, with a twinkle in his eye.
As for the cost of such power, It
would be cheaper than that produced
by steam or gas, and only dearer than
water power In districts where the
latter was very easy to get. He Is
about to erect In the United States a
3,000-h.p. plant of this nature. The
wind-vanes, 300 feet in diameter will
be placed on a tower 420 feet high.

Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
New C. P. R. Hotels
Vancouver.—Mr. Geo. H. Ham,
superintendent of the publicity department of the C. P. R. was accompanied as far as Banff, Alta., by Mr.
Eainterfl chief architect for tlie railway company. Mr. Ham came on to
this city to spend a short time with
his daughter.
.Mr. Painter is at present engaged
on the proposed alterations lo the
C. P. R. hotel at Banff, where it has
been found necessary to make considerable extensions for the purpose
of accommodating the rush of tourist traffic which has set in during the
past two years. At present the facilities for handling the travel are
Inadequate, and the extensions are
to be hurried on to completion in
time for Hie tourist  season of 1911,
After Air. Painter has completed
hie arrangements in Banff he will
proceed to Golden.
According to Mr. Ham, the C.P.R.
Intends to make arrangements for a
miniature Swiss colony in a valley
near Golden. The Swiss guides at
present employed for the benefit of
tourists who wish to indulge in the
pastime of mountain climbing near
Golden and Banff, leave for their
native country to spend the winter
months. By establishing a model
colony near Golden, which will in
every respect be as similar lo tho
average Swiss village as landscape
architects can make it, Hie company
hopes to be able to hold Hie guides
in British Columbia ail the year
round. The company hns two valleys under consideration at present,
bul which one will be decided upon
will nol he known until Mr. Ham
joins Mr. Painter, which will be done
as soon as the latter lias finished his
work at Banff.
The C.P.R. is contemplating build-
twelve hotels across the continent
during the next year. One is to be
erected in St. John, N.B., and another
In Toronto. A new hole! is also lo
be erected in Golden, B.C., while Hie
remaining seven will be scattered
across  the continent,

Esquimau Dock
Victoria.—Messrs. Bul'en, of the
B. C. Marine Railway company at
Esquimau, have submitted plans to
the Minister of Public Works at Ottawa for a graving dock to be built
at Esquimau at an approximate cost
of $3,000,000. The Esquimau company is applying for the government
•subsidy for drydocks, an annual payment of three and a half per cent on
the cost for a period of twenty-five
years. It is understood that a large
British shipbiulding firm is associated with the Esquimau company in
the enterprise, which will, it is understood, be part of a shipbuilding
enterprise planned for Esquimau in
view of the anticipated naval construction for the Pacific cruisers of
the Canadian navy.
Reminiscences of Goldwin Smith Reveals a Strange Stand
Easy Puss
Vancouver.'— information conies
rrom the interior that the G. T. P.
survey parties, which for Hie past
summer have been working along the
Fraser, seem to have directed their
attention to the Chilcoten country,
and are evidently seeking a pass from
Fort George by way of Chilco Lake.
A splendid pass with very easy construction and a low grade is said to
exist east of lice above mentioned
lake, anil a party of ten or twelve are
now busy doing exploratory work
I here.
In the current number of Mc-
Clure's Magazine appears the first
installment of the reminiscences of
the late Mr. Goldwin Smith. The
opening chapters deal largely with
the period of the war between the
North and the South, and a statement of great interest is here published for the first time.
At the time of the civil war Gladstone was a member of the British
government, and the astounding fact
is now revealed that in a letter to
Mr. Goldwin Smith, who was a warm
champion of''the North, Mr. Glad-!
stone proposed that if the North j
would let the South go, Canada |
mighi afterwards be allowed to en-!
ler the Union.

But he was deeply pledged to the extinction of slavery. About the course
of the Duke of Argyll, Cornewall

been a tincture of Liverpool. But he

Inspector Colin Campbell Will Inspect
Every Licensed Hotel in
Accommodation  for Travellers is to
be Kept up to the Highest
Mr. Colin S.' CamphUl, the newly
appointed inspectbr of provincial
police and chief Inspector of licensed
premises under the Liquor Act of
1910, is now in Victoria preparing
for his flrst inspection tour In his
new and dual official capacity in the
course of which every licensed hotel
and eevry provincial police office in
the province will receive a visit—a
purely Informal call, for the Inspector will drop in entirely unannounced, and prepared to accept and to
note conditions as they exist in every
day practice. The chief inspector Is
at present familiarizing himself with
eevry essential piece jf information
In respect to each license and each
license application; he will report
any sugegstlons he may have to offer
as the licensed premises or premises
proposed to be licensed are in their
order vlsted. He will also advise the
department as to the approximate
population in each license centre, In
order that the revised scale" of fees
may be arranged from the first of the
new year, in accordance with the
changed requirements of the act In
this connection.
It Is to be anticipated that from
the flrst of 1911, considerably Improved accommodation in the rural
hotels of British Columbia will be
noted by the travelling public, the
new law—the administration of
which rests largely with Inspector
Campbell—demanding as the minimum standard of accommodation In
order that a liquor license may be
held, that the licensed premises shall
A barroom used only for the purpose of and as a barroom;
A separate sitting room for the
use of guests;
A dlningroom, also altogether separate, apart from, and additional to
both barroom and sitting room;
At least seven bedrooms, each with
a floor area of not less than one hundred square feet (10 x 10 feet sq.)
and each properly, adequately, and
comfortably furnished for the use of
guests, to the satisfaction of the Inspector;
Adequate arrangements and facilities for ventilation and for the prevention of fire, and for egress and
escape from fire should such occur,
and for sanitation and drainage, also
to the satisfaction of the Inspector;
Adequate means for closing and
locking the barrooms during Sundays and other prohibited hours, to
the full satisfaction of the inspector;
Adequate accommodation for the
family and employees of the licensed
holder—the same to be to the satisfaction of the inspector;
Adequate and sanitary kitchen,
pantry and storeroom accommodation
—again to the satisfaction of the inspector;
Premises in connection with the
hotel containing stabling for six
horses, unless the inspector shall
specially certify that stabling accommodation is unnecessary, and
A proper hotel register and adequate arrangements and facilities for
the registration of guests and for the
recording of the times of arrival and
departure of guests.
The Inspect r in his rounds is required to see that all qualifications
demanded of licenses are fully fulfilled ln the fact, and that those portions of the law requiring that liquors be sold only in the original
bottles, pure and unadulterated—
refilling and re-labelllng being absolutely forbidden—are strictly observed.
These duties and functions of the
chief Inspector are probably not ns
yet clearly understood by the general
public, which recognizes the liquor
act as more particularly relating to
the conditions and costs of licenses,
the regulation of the sale, and the
restrictions of the abuse of liquor.
This is, however, but one side or one-
half of the purport and effect of the
.new liquor law, the two-fold objert
of which is to confine the use of liquor in proper channels from the
public standpoint and at the same
time to effectually guarantee a better standard of accommodallon for
the travelling public, In no other
way than under the license system
can such a guarantee of superior accommodations be secured.

Our population at the time of tiie
Are was about 5,400. By the fire
5,300 persons were rendered homeless, and every Industry destroyed
along with every business house,
churches, schools, halls, etc.
The loss is estimated at $0,000,-
000; insurance, $1,500,000. The insurance was very unevenly dlslrlbut-'
ed; the poor people had very little.
Six hundred families have applied for
and received small relief, through
out committee to look after the poor
and destitute. A very large proportion of these families ought to receive
assistance right through the months
of December, January, February,
•March and April and up to the middle
of May.
We have received 350 applications
for aid in building and we expect the
total number of applications will
reach four hundred.
We are building thirty houses for
the poor outright and expect that we
will have to build at least-duty—and
perhaps sixty.
Our actual needs are about as follows:—
Six hundred families aid between now and winter, $50
per family   $30,000
Assistance required to purchase fuel, clothing and
food  of the poor through
winter months    25,000

Total expenses in the administration of funds about..   10,000
Total     $132,000
Sixty persons refused aid.
The Item for administration may
appear large, but It must be remembered that we have had to build
sheds to receive all supplies coming
in, erect offices for the clerical staff
and committees, look after the sanitary conditions created by the fire
and to quite an extent guard the
townspeople who have been turned
out in the fields in tents Me have
had to wholly direct our relief affairs. We had no place to start
from other than a packing box.
I leave you to judge for yourself
what help we need—we have received in round numbers $95,000 in
cash and we hope it will reach $100,-
000. All supplies other than cash
have been about distributed.
Some idea of the cost to the Belfast harbor board of the launching
of the two giant White Star liners
may be gathered from a perusal of
the figures quoted at the meeting of
the board held a few days ago, negotiations between that body and
Messrs. Harland and Wolff regarding
tne facilties for the launch of the
vessels having reached a satisfactory
conclusion. It was announced that
the sum of £60,000 would be spent
primarily in order to insure the safe
launch of the new liners. When the
shipbuilders gave the ordinary notice to the board's engineering staff
for the dredging of the basin to a
sufficient depth for floating the
Olympic it was discovered that the
line of launch for that ship approached so closely to the Victoria wharf
as to endanger its stability. After
that difficulty had been satisfactorily
disposed of, it was found that the
vessels were of such great length that
the harbor would not permit of their
being turned with safety. The engineer was therefore, Instructed to
proceed with the excavation of an
embankment at the soutii end of the
west Twin Island to facilitate the
turning, at an estimated cost of
.C9.300. The net result was an expenditure of £23,000, but to that sum
there must be added £30,000 for-the
cost of deepening the Victoria Channel to a depth of thirty-two feet below spring tides. The board is also
pledged to two other schemes more
or less connected with tbe same object, viz., the construction of the embankment on the County Antrim side
of Ihe water at a cost of £18,000 and
tilling in and spreading the ground
reclaimed at a cost of £25,000.

A. B. Mackenize, a well known
capitalist of the province, who was
one of the pioneer mining men of
Rossland, and who knows British Columbia well, is well satisfied with
the prospects in the North. Recently
In company with J. Fred Ritchie, he
visited Hazelton and made an inspection of the mining properties there
and was so well satisfied that he
straightway invested. Speaking of the
country on his return south, Mr. Mackenzie said:
"Nine Mile Mountain, east of
Hazelton Is destined to be a great
silver-lead shipping camp. The surface showings are simply astounding,
twelve-foot veins with eighteen-inch
paystreaks averaging 50 per cent
lead and $200 ounces of silver per
ton not being uncommon. Scores of
claims, many of which promise to
makes mines, have been located. The
principal groups now undergoing development include the Silver Cup,
Sunrise and Lead King groups. I
was fortunate enough to acquire an
interest in the Sunrise," said Mr.
Mackenzie to the Vancouver Province.
"The whole country up there
seems to be very richly mineralized.
During the pa'st summer a number of
important discoveries of silver-lead
ore rivalling the outcrops of Nine
Mile, have been made on Four Mile
Mountain, within five miles of Hazelton. There has been quite a stampede to the scene and the camp will
no doubt soon occupy public attention. Prospecting there is no easy
matter as the surface consists of a
heavy 'wash.' The big veins that
were located luckily were exposed
owing to rock slides. The topography
is favorable to the driving of tunnels
which will enable claim-owners tc
tap the leads at great depth.
"During my stay in the North I
heard very favorable reports of the
progress of development of a number of claims In the Babine district,
including a group owned by Mr.
James Cronin of Spokane, the original owner of the St. Eugene mine at
Moyle ln East Kootenay. If my information is correct M. Cronin now
owns a still bigger bonanza capable
of shipping a vast tonnage of $400
ore. The principal values are in silver,, associated with lead running
over 60 per cent.
"There are many other Kootenay
old-timers engaged in mining in the
North. Mr. James Sword, M.E., is
credited with having secured a valuable group of copper-gold claims in
the Telkwa district, where diamond
drills are also being used in proving
up important coal measures. The
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway will
provide shipping facilities that will
make the whole northern country
hum with prosperity. Keep your
eye on Northern British Columbia
because it will soon be very much In
the limelight. And there are vast
regions which have not yet baen even
run over by prospectors."

Wages and Hours of Labor on Roll-
ways Now Aiiirnged Under Act
A statement of settlements of
questions as to rates of wages and
hours of labor of railway men that
have been effected under the scheme
of conciliation agreed upon In November, 1907, was Issued as a Blue
Book by the British Board of Trade
It Is provided by the scheme that
any application for a change In rates
of wages or hours of labor of a class
of employees must first be made ln
the usual course through the officers
of the department concerned. If the
claim put. forward Is not mutually
settled, It can be referred to a sectional conciliation board, representing a particular group of grades Including the one affected. Failing
an agreement by that board, the matter can go to the central conciliation
board, representing all grades within
the scheme. Finally, recourse can
be had, if necessary, to arbitrallorl.
There are thus four distinct stages
at which it is possible for a decision
to be arrived at upon claims submitted.
In the various settlements arranged, every phase of the railway man's
life and work Is included, and though
it is generally pay and hours that
are affected, such matters as fhe supply  of old overcoats  to  fogmen   on
the Brecon and Merthyr Railway,
and the annual grant of one local
pass to all prlvers, firemen and their
families on the Cambrian railways
are touched upon.
The four railways that have not
adopted this scheme are mentioned in
the report, and there Is Included,
through the courtesy of the companies concerned, the decisions arrived at by an arbitration on the
North-Eastern Railway, and by direct
negotiations between the companies
and representatives of the staff on
the City and South London, Underground, and Metropolitan District
railways. The traveller on a "Tube"
train In London can thus learn that
the conductors and gatemen now get
two pairs of trousers, a jacket and a
cap per annum, and an overcoat
eevry two years. Their pay ranges
from 3s to 4s 6d per day. The men
who take him up in the lift get 3s 9d
to 4s 2d per day.
In the matter of the Estate of Thomas D. Kearns, deceased, Intestate
All parties having claims against
the above Estate are required to forward the same, with full particulars
thereof, duly verified, to the undersigned, not later than the sixteenth
day of February, 1911, after which
said date the Estate of the said deceased will be distributed amongst
those entitled thereto.

G. Starratt Makes Prophesy -With Respect to Prince
Rupert's Prospects From One Industry
Alone—Vast Enterprises to
Locate Here.
In no other branch of industry will
the completion of the G. T. P. have
more marked effect than In tisimig.
The completion of the road to this
port will create a wonderful fish centre which will be peculiar Inasmuch
as it will come at once into existence
and a trade will go forth over the
lines tributary to the G. T. P. in the
east that will represent immense
sums of money and spread the fame
of the city as the greatest fishing
centre on the Pacific coast.
The facilities for carrying this out
are being provided. The industry at
this port will be unique in that it
will spring at once into immense proportions. Prince Rupert will have no
snrcll beginnings as a fish shipping
point, it will centralize the fishing
trade of the north Pacific and become
famous the world over.
G. Starratt, the practical head of
the Canadian Fish & Cold Storage
company, now building an initial
plant at a cost of about half a million, when in the city a few days ago
gave some interesting facts with respect to Prince Rupert as a fishing
centre. He gave as his opinion that
on a very conservative estimate the
city in ten years would have 30,000
inhabitants dependent on fishing
alone. He was very emphatic in bis
prophesy and contended that there
was nothing at all to prevent this.
No one knows the situation better
than Mr. Starratt for it was his business ability that made the New England Fish company what it is today.
He built up that business and knows
tbe posslbillies of the iishing
grounds of this coast as no other man
knows them.
There are departments of the industry in this part of the coast that
are altogether neglected at present.
Among these is the herring fishing.
Within the past few years the herring
Industry at Nanaimo has come into
prominence in do small measure
through the efforts of Mr. Starrett's
brother. Last year alone there were
45,000,000 pounds of this fish handled at that port and made to contribute to the world's food suply.
Mr. Starrett says that what is done
at Nanaimo can be done here also.
There are just as good runs of that
fish in these waters as there are in
Nanaimo. The quality is the same as
will be proved when the taking of
them with nets from the deeper
waters is commenced.
Today the harbor of Nanaimo is
lined with tho curing quarters of
those engaged in the industry of putting up the herring, where only a
few years ago but one small concern
did the whole of the trade there. Unfortunately, however, the business of
the Vancouver Island port has passed
Into the hands of the Japanese in
too great a measure and the fullest
results are not obtained from It. In
speaking on the subject of making
the most of the fishing industry here
Mr. Starrett, ln common with Sir
George Doughty, gives a warning to
keep the Japanese out of it if the
best results are to be obtained and
make it an industry for the white
The halibut and salmon section of
tiie Industry Is more fully exploited.
These will constitute a very heavy
portion of the trade. In the salmon
line It Is interesting to note how the
Skeena River has come into her own
among the districts of the British Columbia coast. This year, according
to the best statistics available ln the
provincial department, the Skeena
leads all others with an estimated
pack of 180,000 cases. Lack of labor
and lack of tin for the packages also
prevented as full a pack on this river
this year as would otherwise have
been possible. The Fraser river in
one of its off years of course, only
put up 145,000 cases. In view of
the fact that that river has three off
years to every one good one, the comparison it not unfair.
Mr. Starratt, speaking of some of
the other branches of the industry
that have not yet been developed,
gives the information that, there are
many varieties of fish now not utilized at all that may be put to use.
The cheaper forms of commercial
sardines are but young herring, the
most prolific of the finny tribes.
Other excellent small fish that may
be utilized in a similar way abound
in the waters off this coast. The cods
of different kinds will also play an
important part in the commerce that
will be built up so that a great future
lies before Prince Rupert as a fishing centre alone.
There is no reason to doubt the
correctness of Mr. Starratt's estimate
of the population that must be resident here within a few years in consequence of the business connected
with the harvesting of the product
of the sea.
One of the most encouraging signs
in connection with the industry as far
as this place is concerned is the Interest that is being taken in the introduction of white fishermen to take
part in it. Sir George Doughty, who
aims at inducing Britishers to come
and make their homes here, will undoubtedly be successful in his efforts.
Press despatches tell of Interest being aroused among the fishermen of
Newfoundland in the same direction.
Mr. Starratt says that as head of
the New England Fish Company he
engaged white men who were paid
high wages. These men in many instances bought property in Vancouver where the headquarters- were located and have now considerable
wealth owning not only their own
homes, but renting houses which
were paid for out of the earnings
from wages received.
Joined with the other important
industries that must find their centre
here and the immense shipping trade
by land and sea, the prospects for
the future of Prince Rupert are such
as no other city has eevr had at so
early a stage In Its history.
Important Move .Made in Connection
With  Baptist Chilich  Here
A meeting of young men was held
last evening in the Baptist church for
the purpose of organiizng a brotherhood in connection with that church.
A very good start has been made in
the work. Already a great many
young men have expressed a desire
to join and do all they can to further
the work of a necessary organization
such as this in the city. The organization in future shall be under the
name of the Brotherhood of the First
Baptist  Church  of Prince Rupert.
The following officers have been
elected to form an executive committee to draw up a constitution and
look after the affairs of the brotherhood ln general: Hon. president, Rev.
W. H. McLeod; president, Harrison
to. Rogers; vice president, Clarence
Swindell; recording secretary, Wm.
Rellly; corresponding secretary,
Clyde H. A. Rogers; treasurer, A. R.
The object of this organization is
to promote physical, spiritual and
mental development among its members. It is hoped that this brotherhood wil fill, for a time, the place of
a Y.  M.  C. A. in this city.
A Sunday Baraca Bible class is also
to be held in connection with the
brotherhood, to which all young men
of the city arec ordially invited to
Judge Mclnnes Gives Decision Relative
to Liquor Regulation.
General  Provincial  Law  Has  Effect
in the City of Vancouver
Judge Mclnnes in Vancouver has
given an important judgment in connection with the appeal of George
Watson against, the magistrate's convictions of the Atlantic hotel for
selling liquor during prohibited
hours. Mr. J. A. Russell, counsel for
appellant, raised the preliminary objection that the regulations of the
new provincial liquor act did not apply in Vancouver, which was governed by its own licence bylaws.
Judge Mclnnes decided that the act
did apply to the city, though the city
had power to go still further If it
wished. This disposes of the preliminary objection, and the appeal will
have to be heard on tbe facts later.
Good   Season  in the  Bulkley Valley-
Farmers Have Excellent Hay
Aldermere is to Have Water Supply
From the River—Many Improvements
i Special Correspondence)
Aldermere, Oct. 4.—During the
past summer the people of the Bulk-
ley Valley have experienced splendid
weather—days of bright sunshine,
will: only a few days' rain. The settlers have "been making hay while
the sun shines" and the result Is excellent hay.
Although the season has been
somewhat dry, the timothy crop
would cut about two tons to the acre,
while wild bay would run about one
and a half.
Vegetables are a little below the
average on account of the dryness of
the season, but despite this, it should
prove a bumper year for the farmer,
as witli the advent of railway construction, the farmers should receive
good prices for their produce.
A   Water System
Many  improvements are  noted  ln
the towns of the Bulkley. At Aider-
mere many new buildings have been
erected. Broughton & MeNell, the
leading firm, are establishing a water
system, by installing an engine and
pump to force water from the Bulk-
ley river to the townsite.
At Telkwa a new story has been
added to the hotel there, making It
three storeys, while work will be
shortly commenced for erecting another store, a hospital and a church.
Mrs. A. J. Morris has returned
from Everett where she was called
by the death of her mother.

then devoted his attention to Blane
who was clinging to the canoe. Gilroy, who was about half way to shore
suddenly shouted. Agnew heard his
name mentioned, but did not hear
what else his friend said for he sank

of experienced a cramp as he was an
excellent swimmer.
Although very much exhausted,
Agnew started for the shore with
Blane at one end of the canoe and
he himself at the other. Shore was
reached with the two men completely exhausted. They had to tramp
along the shore to reach the camp
and give the news of what had happened.
Since the time of the accident
every effort has been made to recover
the bodies of the drowned men. The
water Is about 100 feet deep at the
point and It Is expected that they will
be found. The bottom is believed to
be either sand or rock.
At last evening's meeting of the
city council the matter was introduced and It was decided to draft a suitable letter of sympathy to be tendered to the friends of the lost men.
Aid. Barrow who had been associated with the men In field work at
different times, spoke in the highest
terms of their ability.
Both of the men were of splendid
physique and had both seen active
service In South Africa.
In reply to a question of Aid. Hilditch, it was explained at the meeting
of the council that the party at the
lake is provided by the city with a
dory and other canoes. There was
no fault to be found with the equipment with which the men have to
