LIQUOR AMENDMENTS
Proposed Changes in Bylaw of City Governing Sale of Intoxicants.
Formidable     Petition     Presented-
Conslderatton of it  is Left
Over for ii  Week
The council last evening had a
petition signed by over 800 residents asking that the liquor bylaw of
the city be amended by the striking
out of section 9, by reducing Ihe fee
charged bartenders and by altering
■the hours for closing of bars from
11 o'clock at night to the morning
to 12 o'clock at night to 6 in the
morning with tlie exception of Saturday evening when it is proposed
to make the closing hour 11 instead
of  10.
The petition was a record one
being yards in length. Section 9,
which it is proposed to strike out
provides for the hotel keeper seeing
that an intoxicated man who has
been served with liquor in his house
is accompanied by a sober man upon
leaving the premises.
Aid. Clayton pointed out that this
was a formidable petition. He
moved that this lay on the table for
a week. He wanted to give a chance
to hear both sides.
Aid. Hilditch refrred to the fact
that, tlie liquor license bylaw passed
just before the last election contained two clauses which he objected to at,the time. His return at the
election indicated lhat the citizens
endorsed,his stand. He inlended to
bring in a bylaw eliminating these
clauses. He suggested that this petition should stand over until that
time when these features asked for
could he considered at the same
time.
After some little passages between Aid. Hilditch and Aid. Pattullo, the latter asked if it was the intention to bring in a new bylaw or
one to amend these sections objected  lo only.
Aid. Hilditch said it would practically be a new bylaw eliminating
these sections.
"That is a lot of work for nothing," said Aid.  Pattullo.
"There has been a lot of that,"
retorted Aid.  Hllditch.
The motion of Aid. Clayton carried.

QUESTION  OF  BOSSES
Too   .Many   Are   in   Authority   It   Is
Believed by Aid. Clayton
The city electrician forwarded a
letter last evening to the council
asking for an increase in salary to
$200 a month with different conditions.
Aid. Clayton called attention to
the fact that there appeared to be
too many bosses in connection with
the work at times and as a means
of settling the matter proposed to
dispense with the services of the
two foremen employed.
It was finally agreed to refer the
whole matter to the llghit committee who will deal with the questions  on  their  merits.

A  SOCIAL  EVENING
WAGE QUESTION IS
NOT YET SETTLED
City Council Discuss the Question at Some Length Last
Night—Final Action Laid Over Until Legal
Advice is Obtained by Acting
Mayor.
Longshoremen's   Union   Entertained
Their Friends al Gathering in
Industrial   Hall
On Saturday evening the Longshoremen's Union of Ihis city held
lie first of a. series of social evenings that are to he given by that
body. There were representatives
of other labor organizations present
and the Longshoremen made excellent hosts. Over 1.00 wore present
and ahout six hours' of enjoyment
was provided.
The programme included music
and dancing while refreshments
were served with a lavish band to
all the guests.
The intention is to continue these
social gatherings from time to time
throughout the next few months.
The gathering assembled in Industrial hall.
 o	
C, II. Faule, who has been identified with the Optimist since early In
its history, has resigned his position
on   that   paper.     Since   the  sale   of
s paper he has been in charge of
■  business end  of the office.
The city council last evening de-
hated the question of increased
wages to the city workmen employed on the streets and after several hours' discussion in which representatives of the Industrial workers took part, the matter was laid
over for a week when the legal aspect of the case with respect to existing contracts will have been laid
before a solicitor and an opinion obtained.
The council last evening had a
report from the special committee
that went into the subject recommending the referring of this to the
electors in the form of a plebescite.
In addition to this there was a
letter to George Casey of the Industrial workers from the city clerk
of Rossland, stating that $3.50 a
day was paid for street work in
that  city.
A message from Mayor Taylor, of
Vancouver, was also read in which
he replied to a letter saying that the
rate in Vancouver was $2.50 a day,
but he was moving in favor of a
$3 day. He also gave the information that rents were from $15 to
$30 a month; groceries $20; meat
$0; fuel $3.50 anud light $2.50.
Aid. Clayton
Aid. Clayton, in support of the
motion in favor of a plebescite, said
it would be necessary to go into
the matter a little. He stood in exactly the same position as he did
when he answered the questions of
the Industrial workers before the
election. He asked then, in reply
to the privilege of granting the 45
cents an hour that they should give
something, namely, that they should
give citizenship in return. He stood
by that. The Industrial workers had
since election time passed a resolution condemnatory of the council
and insisting upon no conditions. He
himself did insist upon a condition
—ethat of citizenship.   '
It was false that he had changed
his attitude. He preferred therefore
to have this referred to the electorate to decide. Were he to decide it
offhand now he would be against
the increase without the condition
he insisted upon, that of citizenship.
Workers Heard
Aid. Kerr suggested that any delegation from the Industrial workers
should  be heard.
This was agreed to.
Mr. Carroll said that the workers
felt that if this went lo the people
\f. would be voted down. It was
felt that many who supported the
Manson ticket at election time
would not vote. Thoshe who voted
the Mobley ticket would unite to
vote against this to put the Manson
ticket up ag. -ist it. He thought
they should give every one the
chance to work and not. make any
distinctions. If, the council said
"no," tonight, tl e workers would
have some respect for them; if they
would r fer it to a plebescite, the
workers would have no respect for
them.
Citizenship  Essential
Aid. Clayton pointed out that in
California work was conditional
upon citizenship, reading from a
union journal. In Victoria, he
found from the Times that citizenship was to be insisted upon in selecting  city  workers.
Aid. Pattullo asked what was
meanl by tho statement that aldermen before the election agree el to
;>e cli.■ increase. He would like to
know which of tlie aldermen had
given such a promise.
Mr. Carroll said Aid. Clayton, he
believed, said as lie now said; Aid,
\torrissey said lie was in favor oi
giving it to tlie married men. The I
other aldermen were in favor of it.
.Mayor Manson said lie was willing
to take the mailer up with the
workmen. The labor men felt so
satisfied that they were to have the
support of ihcso men that they had
111 electors pledged to vote for the
Manson   ticket.
Mr.   Ross though!   if Aid.  Hilditch
took it for granted that, his eli ctio
meant the indorsation of his stand
on  the liquor bylaw  then  he should
also take it for granted that it
should be an endorsation on this
matter.
Abl. Morrissey
Aid. Morrissey traced the history
of the labor situation here leading
up to 371,2 cents an hour for an
eight bour day. Contractors had
entered into arrangements with the
city on this rate. The city had to
be protected against breaking faith
with the contractors. He could not
stand for breaking faith with these
contractors. If 45 cents an nour for
an eight hour day were allowed for
all Workers this information would
go out and it would upset the conditions on the whole coast.
He favored 45 cents an hour for
married men who were citizens of
Prince Rupert.
He did not approve of a plebescite.
He moved that the maximum rate
of wage for common labor be not
more than 45 cents an hour or less
than 37% cents an hour on the
basis of an eight hour day; that in
all contracts let, the wage scale
should 1 neach case be that prevailing in the province at the time.
Mr. Casey
Mr. Casey contended that it would
be unfair to submit this to a plebescite. It would practically be the
property owners who would vote. It
was onl yto be expected that they
would vote against it.
He believed that were the propo-
sit'oi.'.urr.ed down, the workers
would go farther. He felt that the
council should settle the question.
If the council felt, that the workers
were asking what was not fair then
vote against the demands. If they
felt on the other hand that the demands were fair vote for it.
If such a course was taken the
workers could consider the point. A
move could be made under the Le-
mieux act for a conciliation board
which he felt could be Invoked.
The working class could not afford to divide their forces. He felt
that it was impossible to arrive at
what was the fair wage.
Aid. Kerr wanted to know if 45
cents were allowed would it have
any  effect   upon   existing  contracts.
Aid. Hilditch replied, "none at
all."
Aid. Newton Moves
Aid. Newton was in favor of the
referendum principle. He felt that
on this issue the members of tlie
council had an Indirect referndum
and he felt warranted in dealing
with this now. He moved that the
request for 45 cents be granted, to commence March 1, and
that all contracts entered into after
lhat. d^te should provide for a minimum wage of 45 cents an hour for
an eight  hour day.
Mr. Shaw wanted to know how a
man could become a citizen unless
he were given a chance lo get a
living here while lie qualified for
citizenship.
Mr. Fisher did not think that il
required so much debate to decide
upon giving'men working in the
ditch Increased pay when they gave
It to office employees without trouble.
Aid. Kerr was in favor of Aid.
Newton's motion If be would ellml
nale tlie word "citizen." They were
living in a cosmopolitan city and lie-
did not want to take exception to
any one.
Aid.  Newton  corrected  Aid.  Kerr,

BORDERS OPPOSITION
Leader of Opposition Gives Reasons Why
He is Against Reiiprocity
Agreement.
He Is Opposed to Upsetting the Lines
of Trade Already Established
Speaking in the House of Commons upon the proposed reciprocity
agreement with the United States,
the leader of the Conservative opposition, it. I.. Borden, expressed himself as opposed lo the proposition,
Mr. Borden said he could nol
agree with Mr. Fielding that there
had been proper time for tlie consideration of tlie agreement. Only
two weeks ago, tin- matter had been
presented to Parliamenl and only
on Tuesday last, twelve cays after,
was ihe government's proposal presented to the House. They had been
in poscssion of Information for eight
hours. These, he said, were not proposals which should be rushed
through Parliament.
Tlie proposals embodied practically a new tariff, so sweeping that no
one could estimate their ultimate effect with accuracy. He would like
to point out to Parliament and the
country that this was the year 1911
and not 1851 and it was idle to discuss proposals from the standpoint
of the year 1854. It was true that
in the last half dozen years of the
treaty the production of Canada
was stimulated, but they had to remember that conditions were peculiar. Changes were due to the civil
war when production in the United
States had been  lessened.
Building (he Dominion
Mr. Borden dealt with the stupendous task of welding tlie scattered portions of the Dominion into
one and of the building up of British institutions.
"Since 1S66, we have paid out of
the treasury about five hundred million dolars in railways and the federated provincial governments have
to the extent of one hundred and
twenty-seven million dollars more
guaranteed bonds of various railways," he said.
He dealt with the construction of
the Grand Trunk Pacific and the
Hudson's Bay road and also the construction of tbe Georgian Bay canal
and the enlargement of the Welland
canal for which demands have been
made.
Mr. Borden reviewed the progress
of Canada during the last forty years
and claimed that tho prosperity of
Canada was now an assured fact.
Not the least worthy of mention
was (lie raising of tlie standard of
living during these forty years.
From his own experience in Nova
Scotia he said that there was no
comparison between every-day comforts of life at the present time
and that enjoyed when he was a
boy.
Will Kill Trade Channels
"Will yon tell me," he asked,
"that we, in Canada, have not every
right to he satisfied with tlie progress we have made?"
Canada's trade- iias flowed east
and west. If now this direction of
tlie flow of trade is to be changed
and it is to flow north and south,
where Is all the sacrifices Canada
has made and where is all the treasure she has poured forth in a consistent effort for the past forty
years?
If our trade is to flow nortli and
south, where In Iho world is tiie
significance" of the Georgian Bay
canal, of the Hudsons' liny flail way,
of th,. enlargement of th,. Welland
canal? In a word, what is Ihe use
of all these contemplated works,
whose necessity was h.-iseel cm Ihe
former nnd not on the future condition of affairs. Th,. finance minister, Bald Mr. Borde ferred in his
speech io th,. treaty of 1854-66, and
drew morals from it. Well, today,
conditions are entirely different. In
1866, Canada had nut developed to
the- same point as today, a point
which, aieled by modern transportation and cold storage has made Britain Commercially nearer I hall the
United Slates, a fact that certainly
was not true under the reciprocity
treaty.
The finance minister bad referred
to the fact that this country had a
standing offer for reciprocity with
the United Slates on Canada's statute books from 1SG0 to 1897. Let
tlie government bo reminded that It.
was the policy of the government in
power o lake off lhat standing offer of reciprocity with the United
Strifes from Canada, and tlie tariff
1 vision of 1S97 offer was nol renewed by Canada.
A National Policy
True, many reciprocity offers
were made to the United States as
tho finance minister recalls, by    Sir
John Macdonald and others in the
period following 1S6G. In the election of 1.891, this same question
was argued and in that election, tbe
people of Canada declared in favor
of following the national policy that
Canada should seek out markets of
her own in the trade of the world.
That path which was entered upon
when the national policy was introduced in 1879, should be followed
up.    That was the decision of 1891.
Why,      continued     the     speaker,
should   Ihe   United   States   .after  HO
years of rejection of Canada's offer,
come now to the conclusion that this |
was tin- time for them in their own I
interests to seek a reciprocity treaty
wiili   Hi,,   people   of   the   Dominion? j
The United Statesh has al  ail limosl
framed   Us  fiscal  policy   in   Its own
Interests and in this as in some other
matters, ii can well give a lesson to
Canada,    it can give- Canada :e lesson  in   its  conservation  of Us own
resources;  it, can give Canada a lesson  in  ihe  way lta  public  men and!
men who are not public, have united
to elevate Ihe nation's public life; iti
can give Canada a lesson in tlie man- j
ner in whicn the people, accept their I
responsibilities.
Fiscal Changes
Fiscal changes are impending in
the United States. For thirty years
a very high tariff, a tariff twice as
high as Canada has in force, lias
been in force in the United States.
Indeed, the country to Canada's
south is the greatest example of a
protectionist country and at the
same time the greatest example of
a free trade country in the world.
It is a protectionist country insomuch as the high tariff wall has
been built around the greatest manufacturing and greatest agricultural
country in the world, a country with
a population of ninety millions. It
is at the same time, the greatest
free trade country in the world, seeing all the people and territory inside this tariff wall are absolutely
free to trade with each other, unhampered and unchecked.
The great country which produces
thirteen thousand million dollars of
a total trade annually consumes 97
per cent of its total output. Then,
too, the high cost of living of recent
years has been the answer of the
present subject of discussion among
its people. Then, too, the resource l
of the United States have been exhausted at a very rapid rate. That
tliis is so is shown by the recent
speech and statements of Mr. Taft,
the American president, to Congress.
Mr. Borden here quoted Mr. Taft's
speeches to show that the object
of the United States was to gain ace-ess to Canada's natural resources,
to our timber and minerals and other resources which the United States
itself had so used up that they were
beginning to become scarce and thus
expensive.
These facts explained why the
United States was now willing to
trade with Canada and so if the
present proposals were introduced
and accepted by Canada, they even
threatened to upset our whole system and our whole balance of trade.
One Great Objection
One objection lo tlie present proposal was that the market it offered
was so unstable. In five years from
now, unless something might occur
to upset the present, arrangement,
Canada would then have to go back
to the position she was in commercially today, but if that happened,
docs one think that Canada could he
able to start where she now left
off by any means?
Is it not better to increase generally and gradually Ihan to risk all
for the sake of one country's trade?

Nol n Treaty at All
The present proposal is a very delicately balanced affair. In fact, it
is not as the finance minister states,
a treaty al all. II resls simply on a
letter and Its reply between the finance minster of Canada and the I
I'residenl of the United Slates,!
which tells of an arrangemenl thai j
both sides hope will be consummated
some time. In this arrangement,
what if after a time wc decide to put
a duty on some articles on the free
list, the two sides have agreed upon.
The finance minister states that we
are at perfect liberty to do so, but
he also states that the agreement
has to be considered as a whole and
that tlie change of one article in it
may upset the whole arrangement.
Now, if that is so, is it not so also
that some time from now, In a year,
say, after tbe agreement has been
put Into force, will it be everything
or nothing then, too? If wo alter
one Hem in tlie future, the United
States may then say that the whole
agreement is off and all it will have
to do is In present a copy of the recent speech of the finance minister
and say: "Here It is in the words
of your  own   finance  minister."
On Ihe other hand, a treaty Is n

and can be interpreted under the usage and laws of nations. This understanding, however, creates a
much more difficult and dangerous
situation.
States vs. England
Mr. Borden then said that at present the British importer into Canada
pays more than the United States
idi porter. Mr. Borden quoted figures to prove this.
In future, he said, the United
States must exercise a profound influence on Canada in a commercial
way. He went on to elaborate tendencies at present in Candada that
would be exaggerated when this new
trade agreement was in full force
with its full influence felt by the
two countries .
Touching on the argument that
one good result of the arrangement
would be to provide a wider market
for Canadian produce, Mr. Borden
said that if the national issue is to
be disregarded and wider markets in
the United States from which the
empire is to be excluded, are to prevail above every consideration, the
conclusion Is logical and inevitable
that the path of reciprocity as proposed will lead to commercial union
and from that to political absorption.
He quoted President Taft's remark to the effect that the people
were coming to the parting of the
ways and said that it certainly applied to Canada, because it is proposed that what the various provinces nave built up in the course of
forty years was to be sacrificed for
the sake of Washington.
If these things were not foreshadowed in the agreement then be was
very much mistaken.
In proof of this assertion Mr. Borden read from the declaration of
Geoffrey Drage that such a trade
agreement would result, in the political suicide of Canada and from an
article by II. M. Whitney of Boston,
in  which  it was asserted that reel-

procity would result in tlie building
up of the Atlantic American seaports.
Proper Fiscal Policy
Mr. Borden then went on to say
that the proper fiscal policy for
Canada to adopt is one which would
provide in the event of a necessity
for tariff reduction ,for a revision
upon a reasonable and scientific basis. He would recommend such a
tariff as would aim at government
of country, employment of our labor,
increase of our population and utilisation of our natural resources. It
would aim at giving producers reasonable opportunity by equalizing
cost of production. In this connection, Mr. Borden declared that it
would have been well if a permanent
tariff commission had been named
so that tariff would not be made by
rules of thumb. Manufacturers
sometimes desire lower tariffs to
crush home competition, . at least
strong ones do, and a permanent tariff commission would assist the government in getting at information
governing all demands for tariff increases or reductions. To illustrate,
the government ought to be able to
produce facts to either corroborate
or refute the arguments advanced by
Air. Meigben, "for a reduction in
duties on agricultural implements."
Western Canada Conditions
Referring more particularly to
the conditions in Western Canada,
Mr. Borden expressed tlie opinion
that the problems in regard to transportation and terminal elevators
were of more vital importance to
the west than the tariff question. If
the government would deal with
those matters in a proper way, he
believed tlie people of the west
would lie prepared to treat the tariff
question along broad and generous
lines. The people of the west would
be prepared to treat tbe tariff question alon gbroad and generous lines.
The people of the west wore anxious
for the day swhen the country would
be dotted with smokestacks of factories and this would not be accomplished under tlie proposed arrangements.
They were anxious for the construction of Ihe Hudson Bay railway
and the government should rush
this work with all possible speed,
liegard should be given to the expressed desire of the west for government operation of this railway
with running rights for all lines of
railway over the road. He believed
that the government should take the
necessary steps to operate terminal
elevators and to see that absolutely
no barm is done to the growers of
western grain.
An abattoir and cold storage system should likewise be inaugurated.
These were the things which would
bring about the upbuilding and pros-
I perity -of the country.
Careful Consideration
Mr. Borden trusted the government would not proceed hastily with
its proposals. He thought the government would do well to withdraw
them from the consideration of the
House  for  the  present.     In  conclu
sion, Mr. Borden, after pointing out
the sacrifces of two great races, the
English and the French, in the
building up of Canada,  said:
"I trust that the Canadian people
will not lightly relinquish the task
to which their energies and the energies of their forefathers have been
consecrated for so many years. I
trust that the standard will not be
thrown aside and a retreat begun
when the battle is more than half
over. The self-denial and sacrifices
and the patriotism demanded of us
today in order that this nation may
maintain and carry out the ideals
and the purposes for which it was
called into existence are as nothing
to those which were required of our
fathers who founded this confederation. Loyalty to their consecrated
demand that we should continue
with firm heart and unabated hope
upon the path on which we entered
nearly fifty years ago."

Keir Hardie was the principal
speaker recently at a demonstration
under the auspices of the Independent Labor party In the town hall at
Cumnock, Ayrshire. Mr. Hardie
expressed his pleasure at seeing so
many ladies present, and said that in
the closing days of last session the
prime minister gave him a definite
pledge that during this parliament
full facilities would be given for a
women's suffrage bill to go through
all its stages in the House of Commons. He thought, therefore, that
they might look forward with certainty to being able to vole when
another general election came round.
Tliis parliament, he proceeded,
would not only deal with the House
of Lords, but also with a number of
other big and long overdue qttes-
l ions. Home Rule was now on Hie
list of immediately practical questions. Welsh dlsestablisment was
also a certainly, and a big reform
bill which would abolish plural voting, amend the registration laws
and practically give us adult suffrage would also go through. The
Labor party would insist upon the
reversal of the Osborne judgment,
and would not accept payment of
members' and official election expenses as an alternative.
To understand the position let
them look for a moment at the results of the election. When the
House was dissolved the Liberals
and Unionists were evenly balanced
w itl h ue' cmfwyp cmfwy cinfw
with 274 members each. By a
si range coincidence they were again
evenly balanced, though each of
ihem had lost two seats. It was
thus evident that neither Liberals
nor Unionists of themselves, could
form a cabinet or carry on the government. In addition to the two
orthodox parties there was the Irlsn
party of 84 members and the Labor
party with 42 members. The Liberals,   therefore,   had   to   choose     be
tween an alliance with the Unionists
or an alliance with the two other
parties he had named and, naturally,
as things were, they preferred an
agreement with the Labor and Irlsn
parties to a coalition with the Unionists. Let him remind them of
what the growth of tbe Labor and
Irish parties had been. In 1900 he
(the speaker) was returned for Mer-
tliyr, and during that parliament
they won three seats at by-elections.
At the general election of 1906
they secured 29 members, in January, 1910, increased their strength
to 40 members, and in December of
tbe same year to 42. Labor was
now one of the recognized parties
in the state, and that of itself was
a great gain to the working class.
In most of the industrial constituencies in a three-cornered contest their
party could poll a minimum of a
third of tlie total electorate.
Party government in the old
sense was over, and the group system was bound to become, as it had
become elsewhere, more and more
the composition of the House of
Commons. When such questions as
the Lords and Home Rule had been
settled the progress of their party
would be more rapid than it had
been in the past. Among the questions now well in the running for
settlement was the right to work
bill. They had already secured that
the school children should be provided with food and that the aged
poor should have a small pension.
Now their object was to give security to the capable worker by ensuring
that when he was out of work
through no fault, of his own, the
state should either provide employment at a living wage or maintenance. Another question that was
beginning to assume some prominence was the establishment of a
legal minimum wage, which he
fixed at 8s. a day for underground
workers and 30s. a week for surface
laborers.
A man had gone to lecture in a
country village, and took as his title,

The vllage wiseacre listened very

lecturer. "What would you say if

I      The Bubonic Plague      J
X t
•> * * •> * •> »> *> * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Dr. Andre Chantemesse, professor
of hygiene at the Paris Faculty of
Medicine, has contributed - the following article on the plague to the
New York Herald:
"The western regions of Mongolia
and the district east of Lake Baikal
are the home of a rodent, a kind of
prairie beaver, called the tarbigan,
which reacts readily to the attacks
of the microbe and presents an unexpected peculiarity, being just as
sensitive to infection by the pulmonary type of plague as an ordinary
rat to infection by the bubonic
form.
"Although tlie role of the Mongolian rodent is new in the history
of tbe epidemiology or plague, it is
not, however, entirely unknown to
scientists. Professor Schotteiin of
Stuttgart, already has described
several instances in which the tar-
bagan spreads germs of disease
along the course of the Siberian rivers.
"In the year 1910 numbers of
trappers were atracted to Mongolia
by the abundance of these animals.
Suddenly toward the end of October six trappers were successively
atacked by the malady, beginning
with violent fits of coughing, followed by abundnt expectoration of
blood and ending in death.
"This was the pulmonary form of
the plague. The disease spread with
extreme rapidity. The terror-stricken Mongolian peasants fled from
their villages. Many seeking refuge travelled along the Chinese
Eastern Railway in the direction of
Harbin and stations of the Manchuria Railway, carrying with them the
germs of the disease.
"The details of the measures enforced by Russian authorities to
stop the progress of the scourge are
not known, but in general they are
based essentially on the isolation of
the patients in suspected cases and
disinfection by fire. If the patients
were not numerous it might be reasonable to hope to arrest the epidemic by strict measures, but what
power can they have on an affrighted population, so terror-stricken
that it can only seek safety in flight,
dispersing cases, some suspected,
some inoculated and simply in the
incubation  stage?
"Accordingly the governments of
Russia, China and Japan and the
European legations at Pekin are taking energetic steps all round the
centres of tlie disease.
"The roads leading from Mongolia
are strictly supervised, and the
trans-Siberian, tlie Chinese Eastern
and the South Mancburian Railway
companies have been expressly
called on to take every precaution ,o
prevent the spread of the contagion.
"As the Mahchurian plague appears to be'transmitted by expectorated matter or coughing patients,
the masks used by physicians in the
Middle Ages on approaching plague-
stricken individuals no longer need
be a subject of derision.
"PROF. CHANTEMESSE."
 o	
"Well," reluctantly admitted the
hard-pressed Yorkshire horse dealer
on the witness stand, "I'll admit the
animal was blind o' one eye, an' I
won't deny he'd springhalt in bis
off hind leg, an' I'm not sayin'—
seein' the two vets has sworn to it
—that he wasn't spavined, an' I'd
a sort of suspicion myself that he
was a roarer; but he was a gr-r-rand
hoss!"—Tit-Bits.

NEITHER IS WRONG
The Optimist in ils policy of be-
littling everythng that is done by
the McBride government is fearful
thai the Impression may get abroad
that that government is doing to the
besl of its abiltiy what is calculated
to benefit Skeena in common with
the oi her parts of ihe province. It
therefore seizes upon the remarks of
Mr. Manson in ihe Legislature that
5221),000 of an appropriation is not
sufficient for Skeena to attempt to
show that Tlie Journal is wrong
when it says liberal appropriations
were made. No one who makes
even the most superficial study of
the situation presenting itself here
will for a moment deny that several
times $225,000 could with advantage be used in the district. A much
more liberal contribution than has
been made would not, need to be
wasted in finding splendid avenues
for expenditure.
The Government, however is
hedged in by the funds available and
the future as well as present day
demands that must come upon It.
Cut off by Ottawa without what Is
acknowledged by those who have
studied the question, to be fair reasons for a demand for better terms,
the province of British Columbia
must finance great undertakings
with limited capital. The McBride
Government has faced the proposition with which it was confronted
and the people of the province have
stood by the Premier manfully in
the effort to develop this great province in spite of Ihe denial at Ottawa
to consider the strong claims for
better terms.
From a state of practical bankruptcy for the province, when Hie
banks refused money, Premier McBride lias pulled Hie province
through a difficult stage in ils existence. Assuming power under
such unfavorable conditions Ihe
people of British Columbia patriotically consented to the government
cutting down the expenditures iin
every way possible with respect to
public works aud increasing taxation. The step which had to be
taken by the government was what
is always recognized as an unpopular
one but it was done, and when the
situation was put before the people
they heartily endorsed Ihe move,
consenting to bear the inconvenience until such time as the government could HIT the burden somewhat. Gradually the government is
doing that. The appropriations for
the public works are being increased
and the taxation is being reduced.
That great statesman, Hon. William
Templeman, vqlcing, doubtless, the
opinion of the Ottawa government
instead of lending his aid to secure
for this province what was ils rights,
offered as a solution lhat the Lau-
rler government should increase its
expenditures in the province in the
way of subsidies to railways and
other public works rather than,allow
the McBride government to administer any further sums. It must be
acknowledged that Ihis was a most
unique system of repaying debts and
found a very cold response, from the
electorate.
In spite of all the difficulties encountered, Ihe provincial gen eminent has stayed with its task, and
backed   up by  the <-l<-«■ I<>i ;ir«• has put
the. province in such shape thai ii
ranks second to none in ihe Dominion with respect to wise administration.
Appropriations for public works
in the country cannot be made from
the standpoint of the demands alone.
The funds available must be considered and the McBride government
has always considered these two aspects, in this respect differing from
the old regime In this province when
the revenues never seemed to be
taken Into account. It is this business administration that has made
the present government a name for
itself in the province. Appropriations are liberal or are the contrary
by comparison. In Ibis respect the
vote for the Skeena is undoubtedly
a liberal one and the district Is assuredly coming Into Its own.
The appropriation is certainly inadequate to carry out all the work
that those interested, including the
members of the government, would
like to see carried out. The whole
of the vote for roads and trails in
the province could with advantage
be spent in this district and yet
there would be work to be done.
Such a thing is impossible. The
government is obliged to keep the
appropriations within the range of
the revenues. The opening up of
the vast new areas in the country
will bring with it demands for roads,
for schools and all the other necessaries that go with such development. The government realizing
tliis and looking forward is forced to
exercise due economy in the administration of the public business.
With the largest vote in the province
coming to this district an evidence is
afforded that this part of the country is regarded as the most important in the whole province at the
present time. The Journal takes
pleasure in proclaiming that fact to
the world and will continue to do
its duty to the district in keeping it
prominently to the front.
Wo will tako equal pleasure In
putting forward the fact lhat the
Dominion government is to spend
large sums here. We have no pleasure In belittling what is being clone
by any government for the development of the city and the district.
We are thankful for it all and ask
for more.
SLIGHTLY   EXAGGERATED
Through its fascination for the
Liberal party which It serves, the
Optimist is inclined to be blinded in
its view of affairs with which the
Ottawa Government is connected.
In its frenzy to find fault with the
McBride Government, the Optimist
made the statement that the Dominion Government was spending a sum
on a dry dock for the port eight
times as great as the whole appropriation of the Provincial Government for tlie Skeena. Taking into
account Hie anguish under "which
this Liberal organ was laboring as a
result of the announcement with
respect to the estimates as they affected this district, we did not take
occasion to correct what we felt
must have been a slip on the part of
the editor. The repetition of the
statement in a more boasting way
calls for a correction, however.
The Dominion Government is not
expending any such sum as is represented upon a drydock here. It is
understood that the Grand Trunk
Pacific or some company closely allied with that corporation is prepared to spend a million and a quarter upon a floating clock at this
port. In agreeing to clo so the company will earn a subsidy granted to
any company that will undertake It
amounting to Zl/2 per cent a year
for a term of a5 years. Now under
those terms the Dominion—Government will pay $43,750 a year here
on that dock, which is a great deal
nearer one-eighth of the sum appropriated by Hie province than it. is
eight times the amount.
We are not stating this in the way
of finding fault with tlie Dominion
Government in this matter, although
there are good reasons why there
should be a large sized dry dock or
floating dock of the first order provided at Prince Rupert by the government. The policy of Ihe Dominion Government, however, for the
coast at the present seems to be to
guarantee a low rate of interest to
any concern that will provide docks
at the points agreed upon. The policy from the standpoint of the government is an exceedingly conservative one for with the. subsidy which,
it must be admitted, is not exceedingly liberal, there are conditions by
which the government steamers are
given the first claim upon the facilities when required, so that there is
si tired to the government a dock at
,i very low cost,
With the carrying out of the
naval policy and the consequent Increase in government owned ships
on this coasl it cannol be long before ihis port must of necessity, as
the natural northern lease for the
fleet have first-class docking facilities afforded here and also land defences to guard the entrance to the
harbor and render those docking
facilities absolutely safe.
With abundance of money to
spend In the east upon ports of far
less importance to the country than
Ibis one is there Is no denying the
fact that In spite of what Is being
done by the Dominion here, there Is
a fine scope for larger and more expeditious expenditures.
There is, however, enough being
done by the Dominion Government
which has a reputation of moving
very slowly with respect to works
on the Pacific coast, to warrant the
belief that that government realizes
the important part which the city is
to play in the Industrial life of the
west. We hope, however, that the
organ of the Liberal party in the
city will not In Its zeal to advance
the Interests of that party misrepresent matters to the extent It has
done In this particular case.

TOOL  FACTORY
NEW WESTMINSTER —Another
Industry is soon to be added to New
Westminster's already .long list of
factories. Mr. B. F. Dowd, representing both local and eastern capitalists, was in town and procured an
option on a site, on which will be
manufactured all manner of tools,
including hammers, wrenhes, chisels, etc. Three buildings will he
erected almost immediately aud after the plant is complete over a hundred men will be employed. The
firm will probably be known as the
Drop Forge Manufacturing Company. The site is opposite New
Westminster, a short distance from
the.bridge. The factory will he the
only one of its kind west of Chicago,
and is another Indication of the increasing Importance of this city as
a manufacturing centre. Close to
$1,25,000 will be invested, and it Is
understood that a prominent Vancouver man is one of the backers.
Work will be started inside of two
mouths. The site was procured
through Messrs. Reid, Curtis and
Dorgan.
D, 0. TREES IX IRELAND
VICTORIA—All interesting experiment in reforestation Is being con-
dnc-ied by sir Richard Musgrave on
his extensive estates In County Wa-
terford, Ireland, where, in land that
has for years been waste, the seeds
of the British Columbia cedar and
spruce were planted some few years
ago, with the result that trees of
twelve feet height and upwards now
clothe the erstwhile bleak bottomlands. Sir Richard has recently sent
to Surveyor General E. B. McKay for
further supplies of seeds of the
cedar, larch and spruce, it being the
intention to follow up the successful
experiment.
CHURCH EXTENSION
proposition made by the speaker
that the churches should undertake
to colect a minimum donation lroni
each of its members for the year of
$6.25 was heartily endorsed. The
whole amount collected will be devoted to the extension of the work
of the Baptist Church in Canada.
Later in the evening this was put
as a motion and carried unanimously. ,
During the course o fthe meeting
it was stated that Messrs. Estabrook
and Harkness had visited Victoria
when they had met a similar body of
men by Weiom the same action with
regard to funds had been taken.
The united action of the two conferences means donations amounting
in the aggregate to $15,000 for the
year in British Columbia.
GOVERNMENT  SURVEYS
VANCOUVER—At the conference
in the Baptist Church on Hamilton
Street, Mr. Harkness, general secretary of the Baptist Union of Western
Canada, explained to the meeting the
methods and the purposes of the
union in its relation to the local
churches generally, and the Vancouver churches    In    particular.    The
QUESNEL—Gore & McGregor are
sending three articled third year
men from the coast to join P. Landry, provincial land surveyor, in order to clear up the government due
work, season 1910-11. The roads
are heavy and the transportation is
very hard for dog team and snow
shoe men, but the work must be
done in order to cover government
due notice of private surveys. Mr.
Landry and .Mr. Forln Campbell will
proceed up the Quesnel river some
fifty miles and commence Wm.
Blair's .surveys. Mr. Landry will then
return to tbe Ten Mile Lake and finish private surveys there and on
the Cottonwood river. He will then
return with Mr. Campbell and finish
Hie surveys on Quesnel river.

It is understood that steps have
quietly been taken of late to emphasize that the law as enacted is meant
to be obeyed, and carelessness in his
dealings-in this particular feature of
the law may mean the payment of
heavy money penalties by thoughtless licensees or else the loss of the
license.
The trade cannot deny that fair
and ample warning has been given,
and it will be well for licensees
throughout the province (and especially in the cities) to remember
that any sale or gift of liquor to a
minor in British Columbia Is distinctly an infraction*- of the law—
that a minor is any person under the
age of 21, and that the burden of
proof under this act, is always upon
the person accused thereunder.

LIQUOR   PROHIBITION
Government   to   Enforce   Law'
specting Sale of Intoxicants
to Minors
He-
One feature of the provincial liquor law which latterly has been
somewhat of a dead letter In so far
as its enforcement In the coast cities is concerned, is that prohibiting
the .sale or gift of intoxicants of any
sort to minors—a minor being distinctly and specifically defined as
any person under the age of 21, says
the Victoria Colonist. No one in
touch with conditions as they are in
the cities, can be unaware that this
provincial prohibition is seldom given a thought by barmen unless the
extreme youth of the prospective
customer  is obvious;   or  that many
With tho expiration of her charier
to the Canadian Northern Pacific
Fisheries Company, the Grand
Trunk Pacific steamer Henrietta is
laid up for a short time, and will
receive a thorough cleaning and
overhauling before resuming regular
service. Her first run after the
overhauling will be to Prince Rupert
with general freight.
Tlie Henrielle, commanded by
Captain Bucklioltz, with Air. Thompson as male, has been engaged principally In carrying materials and
stores for Ihe new whaling station
under construction at Naden Harbor.
It is said that when this station has
been completed, another will be
commenced in the far north, at some
point on the Arctic Ocean. Two
whalers, probably the William Grant
and the Sebastian, will start In a
few days for a cruise off Barkley
Sound. They will take their catches
to the Sechart station. The new
whalers, the Brown and the Blue,
the last of the fleet on the way from
Norway, have passed into the Pacific
following the White, the Black and
the Red, which were last reported at
Callao, and are now on the way to
San Diego'. The Blue and the
Brown passed through the Straits of
Magellan last Sunday.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
RELATIONS  CORDIAL
Countries of Europe Show in Disposition
to Incite War at This
Time.
Peace Reigns in the Various Diplo
niatic Circles According to
French  Minister
When M. Pichon made his lond-
expected statement on foreign affairs in the French chamber the
other day, among the members of
the diplomatic corps In the gallery
were three ex-foreign ministers, now
the ambassadors of their respective
countries in Paris, listening to him
Intently They were M. Isvolsky,
Signor Tittono and Baron von
Schoen,
M. Pichon's speech, which 'was not.
far short of two hours In duration,
was optimistic throughout. The
French foreign minister sees no
cloud on the horizon; France's relations with all countries are cordial
and as for the excitement over the
Russo-Gernian negotiations, who
could' object to Russia's coming to
an understanding with Germany in
regard to Persia when France had
set the example by coming to an understanding with Germany in regard
to  Morocco?
M. Jaures asked an awkward
question. The Socialist leader wanted to know whether France had
been kept informed of tlie course
of the negotiations in regard to the
Bagdad railway and Persia, but M.
Pichon refused to be drawn. He
somewhat hastily remarked that the
answer would carry him too far,
and hurried on as if anxious to quit
delicate  ground.
The foreign minister's reference
to the entente cordiale was especially hearty. "Our entente with England has never been closer or more
thorough," he said. "There is not
a question on which the two nations
do not agree for common action. It
Is one of the chief blessings acquired
In the course of the last six years. '
It was a comforting spectacle, he
continued to see the close union of
Republican France and Monarcbial
Fnglcr.d, hand in hand, working In
all 'circumstances in the cause of
peace. King Edward's memory
must ever remain dear in France
(hearty applause).
After a friendly reference to Austria, in which   he said  that  in the
Bosnian affair France had not
ceased to act in concert with Russia
and  England,  M.  Pichon continued:
"Bosnia and Herzegovina was
Austria's protectorate, transformed
into annexation. Russia at once
perceived that he question was European, and demanded the meeting
of the signatory powers to the
Treaty of Berlin, but at the same
time showed herself anxious to safeguard the peace of Europe. M.
Isvolsky allowed it to be unuerstood
that, in any case, the annexation
would not involve a casus belli.
"Can we be reproached for not
having done all in our power In order that the affair might end by
agreement among all the powers?
No. When tbe sky Is clear alliances
cannot be judged. When the clouds
appeared Russia saw that she could
count on our alliance. She did not,
however, think lhat it was an occasion for conflict. We were of Ihe
same opinion, This justice was rendered us abroad. I ask that it bo
rendered  us In France.
"Our alliance with Russia was
never more vigorous or solid. No
event has come tot rouble it. It has
no thought of aggression; it will be
exercised in the interests of peace.
Indications have been sought in tlie
speech of the German chancellor,
but M. Bethniann-Hollweg was careful to guard against unfavorable interpretation. He has declared that
the Russo-Gernian agreement has no
aggresive character. It is the same
with our alliance with Russia. The
German chancellor affirms, in his
speech, the necessity of the statu
quo in the Balkans. That Is also
our policy. All friends of peace
must rejoice at this declaration,
which accords so entirely with our
views  (applause).
"The agreement with respect to
Persia is, too, a new pledge of psace.
Russia was already in agreement
with England in regard to Persian
affairs; we must be glad that she is
in agreement with  Germany.
"Neither in Its tendency nor in
its object is there any change in the
Franco-Russian alliance. There are
some who—ever criticising the government's policy—have asked if we
are not going towards isolation?
No! We are united to Russia by
an alliance, to England by our entente, to Spain by pacific agreements, to Japan by other agreements. We entertain friendly relations with Italy."

Although definite announcement
on the subject has not been made in

certain that all hope has been abandoned that the Australian Commonwealth will continue to subscribe to

postmaster general states that the
amount of the subsidy hitherto given
for tlie purposes of the postal service
Is larger than is warranted, and be
thinks the opportunity ought to be
taken to discontinue it. Much satisfaction is expressed in New Zealand
at the decision of the Canadian government to foster by means of the
new service closer trade relations
with the southern dominion.

WAGE QUESTION IS
NOT YET SETTLED
(Continued From Page One.)
Before election he said he was in
favor of 45 cents an hour if they
became citizens. He did not mean
by that that he was opposed to any
nationality. He meant by citizen a
man who came here and was supporting his family  here.
He would support the motion if
he found it would not interfere with
contracts now made.
In reply to Aid. Newton, Aid.
Smith said that lie felt that the fact
that the wage of 37% cents mentioned in the.' contract' was the recognized wage by the city at the time
made the city liable were an in-
crease made, lie would like to consult a solicitor on the matter.
Aid. Neweton suggested adding a
rider to the motion to the effect
that it would be granted only on
condition that it .did not so effect
existing contracts.
Aid. Smith thought that it would
not be wise to hinder any motion in
that way.
Aid.  Hilditch
Aid. Hilditch explained that there
bad been three motions in the committee. It had been decided to agree
for a plebescite. He had his doubts
upon such a vote carrying. He would
work as hard as lie cculd for it.
He felt considering the prices submitted from Mayor Taylor of Vancouver lhat it cost about 10 per cent
more to live in Prince Rupert than
in Vancouver.
- He felt that the increased rate
would bring such a better class of
workers that the increase would be
•j arranicd.
He did not think that the city altering the rates would have any le
gal effect in holding the city responsible. The contracts might have a
"moral kick," but he would have
no legal claim while he did not
think that 45 cents an hour was too
much at present yet, when the railways arrived, living would be as
cheap as in Vancouver. The unions
should then be obliged to fight their
own way.
He felt that his should be settled
by  the   vote  of   the   council.
Aid. Pattullo
Aid. Pattullo said that the committee brought in an unanimous report, yet two members of the committee now voted against it. He
was not opposed to giving tlie workers 45 cents or even 50 cents if he
considered only the local conditions.
But the whole industrial situation
had to be considered. He did not
consider that the committee had
conducted an investigation. Only
one side was heard. He would like
to have the facts from Vancouver.
He also felt that Mayor Manson
should bo here in order to assist in
this work. He was the head of the
council and should be able to give
advice.
He thought that this should go
back to the committee for further
consideration, taking into account
the conditions in Vancouver.
If he were forced to vote on the
matter now he would vote against
the motion, not because he opposed
giving the increase but because he
thought It should be more fully considered by the committee.
Aid.   Hllditch   Explains
Aid. Hilditch complimented Aid.
Pattullo upon his diplomatic speech.
He explained that he had called the
committee together before Iho reply
was received from Vancouver because he felt that tho committee
should lake the responsibility. When
the committee met there were three
members beside himself. There was
a motion, an amendment, and an
amendment to the amendment,
which left the situation absolutely
tied   nil.     He  called   upon   the  com-

At the rooms of the PRINCE RUPERT

Be on hand and bid for this desirable lot
mlttee to decide upon some action
unanimously and the report was accordingly adopted.
Aid. Clayton said that the matter of investigation was not necessary to the men who promised before election what stand they would
take. He would not support conditions tact would result in employing
men Who would send money out of
the city.
Aid. Morrissey said if no legal liability was involved he was ready to
vote for the motion of Aid. Newton.
Finally after considerable further
discussion Aid. Newton, in view of
acting mayor's fear that there was
a legal difficulty, consented to let
his motion stand over for a meeting of the council as a committee on
Thursday evening.
The motion carried on condition
that the matter be decided at next
Monday's   meeting.
