No Move Made By the Council to Stop
Work Below the
Question  is Brought   up by Aid.  Mil-
ditch liui Mayor Expects Additional Money
The question of street work in
section one came before the city
council again on Wednesday evening
when Aid. Hildltch sought some information relative to transferring
work from below the iunction to the
business  centre.
Aid. Hilditch said he had met Mr.
Watson and asked him why he did
not give a figure for the work below
the junction as he proposed. Mr.
Watson said he had been given to
understand that this was all off. He
did not state who told him it was
"all off." Aid. Hilditch wanted to
know if there was any ground for
this statement by Mr. Watson.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the
call for tenders, on Third avenue
might have prompted him to believe
It would not be required to change.
Aid. Lynch pointed out that there
were tenders called for the work on
Aid. Hilditch thought if Third avenue was provided for there were
other parts in the centre of the city
where the work could be done, on
First avenue for instance.
His worship said he fully expected
all the money to be forthcoming to
carry out all the work in section one.
If they were to switch Mr. Watson
to First avenue it was probable the
money would be forthcoming so that
the whole of the work be done.
Aid. Barrow thought in view of
the fact that work was in progress
on Second and Third avenues it
would be just as well not to "plug
up" First avenue also
Aid. Hildltch pointed out that
First avenue was pretty well plugged
up now.
The matter was then allowed to
drop, his worship feeling sure that
the money for all the work would be

Tiie fact that this Is an age of
specialists is being put forward as a
reason for patronizing n printing
office that is to be controlled by men
who ace not practical printers nor
newspapermen, Surely nothing could
be more ridiculous In the eyes of the
discerning public
It is true this is an age of special-
ists and the public are more and
more content to refer their work to
men who make n specialty of one
line. The Journal was founded and
is conducted on just such lines. It is
absolutely under the control of one
who if he does not know the newspaper business should be ashamed of
himself, for be ought to know it and
bus a reputation to live up to in that
respect. In the mechanical department of The Journal nothing hut the
best of printers me employed and the
work turned out by the office has
never failed to give satisfaction in

business proposition, like any other
legitimate commercial concern, and
those Hint, exist for the purpose of
furthering some fad, cult or party,
and which are in nine cases out of
ten  not  business propositions ill  ull.
The Journal belongs to the first
class nod will continue to lie so run.
It was surely a daring suggest ion to
advertise u printing office—to finance
which stock is being peddled in small
lots—as the home of specialists.
Someone surely blundered at the outset.
The public arc, therefore, admonished not to forget that The
Journal is the office of specialists,
where their business will be transacted purely as business and when
there are no interests represented
that can have any reason for giving
other than the best of service in
every line entrusted to its care. The
Journal exists to serve the public
and to serve that public well. It Is
not under public ownership however
but is conducted by specialists.

President Taft is going to do all he
can to help Colonel Theodore Roosevelt to win victory for the republican
state ticket in New York. :The president will ask two. or three members
of his cabinet to go to New Y7ork
and assist  in  Ihe campaign  there.
Mr. Taft, il is said, "takes absolutely no slock" in the story that
Colonel Roosevelt will oppose him
as a candidate in  1012.
Subject Stands Over Until Committee
Can Confer With Engineer
The sewer question was the subject of an inquiry at Wednesday evening's council meeting when It was
explained that the engineer had not
made a report yet.
Aid. Hilditch thought it would not
hurt to have the streets committee
go Into the plans and propositions
with the engineer before the matter
was discussed.
In this the mayor acquiesced and
other members of the council felt It
would be a wise course so the subject was allowed to drop.
Date While Not Officially Fixed Will
In All Probability be June 21
London, Oct. 21.—There is no
doubt that the coronation of King
George V. and Queen Mary will take
place In the week commencing June
18, probably on Wednesday, 21st,
which Is the anniversary of Queen
Victoria's flrst jubilee.
No official announcement has yet
been made, but It Is significant that
the opening of the Royal Ascot race
meeting, which was to be ln that
week, has been fixed for June 14, and
the Royal show, of which his majesty
Is president, and which he has signified his Intention of visiting .at Norwich, has been postponed from June
26 to the first week ln July. June
23 will be the seventeenth anniversary of the birth of the Prince of
W. J. Elmendorf, the manager of
the Portland Canal mines at Stewart,
was a passenger soutii last evening,
having gone on business connected
witli tiie mines. The new concentrator is eminently satisfactory. It is
in fact doing better work than ,''e
manager expected and in consequence
tiie company is elated over the prospects. The provincial mineralogist,
to. Fleet Robertson, who is also on
his way down from an inspection of
the camp, speaks in eulogistic terms
of the concentrator that has been put
in. Mr. Robertson says that he must
admit that he never expected to see
the concentrator running as smoothly as he found it. The table where
the separation takes place is described by the mineralogist as presenting
a very pretty sight. The different
ores are separated so sharply that It
presents the appearance of a painted
table as the ore passes ovr It.
Mr. Elmendorf says that the separation of the ores is most satisfactory. The Iron pyrites carry nearly
all the gold values in the ore and the
silver values are almost exclusively
carried by the lead. The compete
separation of these ores is attended
by the very best of results at the
smelters and the company will derive
a great advantage in the placing of
the concentrates.
At present the concentrator is
running along steadily working up to
its capacity on two shifts which ensures twenty-four hours work a day.
The mine Is being worked to the
capacity necessary lo keep the concentrator running steadily only. By
means of the aerial tram line the
question of handling the ore Is simple.
In the mine itself there is a vast
body of ore which has been mapped
out for the future and the outlook
is of the most promising character.
Speaking of the reports that have
from time to time been sent out with
respect to the ore in the camp, Mr.
Elmendorf speaks in a condemnatory
way of them. They had the effect of
attracting inexperienced men to Invade the hills and had it not have
been a very favorable season with
respect to weather, there would, he
says, have been loss of life as a result of these men pushing aimlessly

In order to facilitate the
registration of householders
the city hall will be open from
7 to S In the evenings for the
rest of the month, when the
assessor, Mr. McLennan, will
take all applications.
The subject was brought up
at last, night's council meeting when Aid. Hildltch pointed out that with the office
hours at the city hall as at
present, workingmen could
not get a chance to register.
He thought the hall should be
opened at night.
This was agreed to and the
hall will be open every evening. All who pay the $2
head tax who are otherwise
qualified to vote as British
subjects and have complied
witli the regulations as set
forth in the advertising columns of the paper, are able
to vote as householders.

Back From the Portland

cr'Jes For Purposes of Reporting
I'pon For His Department
Connection  to  Be Given   By Way of
Cariboo Trail With
Important   Policy   With   Respect   to
Opening I'p the Interior of
the Province
An interesting announcement of
the government's trunk road building programme in the province was
made at a recent meeting of the
board of trade In Victoria when It
was stated that the minister of pub-
lie works had given the information
tbat not only would transprovlncla'
roads be connected so as to make a
continuous highway from the coast
lo Alberta, but also a north lo South
transprovincial road would be built.
The latter will be a continuation
of the old Cariboo trail, which will
follow the east bank of the Fraser
river to a point opposite Fort George,
thence by the Nechaco valley to the
divide separating the Nechaco valley from the Bulkley and by the
Buckley valley as far as Hazelton.
The north and south road would
be between BOO and 600 miles ln
length. The provincial trunk road
building policy involved construction
of over a thousand miles.
Dr. Large, who for some years has
been in charge of the hospital at
Bella Bella has been transferred to
Port Simpson where he will have
charge of the work. He has moved
to his new field of labor.
W. Fleet Robertson, the provincial
mineralogist, and one of the most
conservative of the mining engineers
of the country, spent a few days in
the city tliis weeir on his way soutii
from an inspection of the mining district about Portland Canal. In his
position of provincial mineralogist
Mr. Robertson did not care to say
much with respect to his tour, awaiting the appearance of his roport,
either in the regular way or it deemed better in the form nf a bulletin in
Which form the Government lias seen
fit to have published quite frequently
of late years the reports of the experts.
Enough was learned from a conversation with the mineralogist to
know that lie regard the camp as a
permanent one. He says that for the
most part the mines are to be classified as low grade, tbif statement
being borne out by Mr. Eimendorf,
the manager of the Tonland Canal
mines, who was also present during
tiie interview. Both if the experts
agreed that it was possible on most
of the properties to get the most
widely varying values according hi
the samples taken. There are very
rich samples and there are low
grade samples. When the whole body
of the ore Is taken It Is generally
low grade. The fact that It separates as easily as has been proven by
the concentrator at the Portland
Canal mines Increases materially the
value of the output.
When Mr. Robertson left the camp
the Red Cliff company vas in 1006
feet on the low tunnel. They are
able to make a distance of about 160
feet a month so that It will e Bome |
little time before the point soughl
directly under the higher workings
Is reached. The distance that that
point will be reached Is 1,280 feet
from the outside. The tunnel which
is double tracked as tbey proceed is
a model in point of workmanship,
the rock of the district lending itself
to excellent cutting.
The subject of workmen who have
families being given the first opportunity to find employment under the
city was introduced last night al Hie
council meeting, Aid, Hildltch, as
might be supposed from bis close
connection with the labor interests,
was the one to bring it up. A somewhat acrimonious discussion followed, but on the motion of Aid. Hilditch is was decided to open a waiting list at  the city hall.
Aid. Hilditch in introducing the
subject, said that there had been
complaints of hard times and lack
of work. Residents of the city
by whom he was approached
had asked if they could not
be given the opportunity to work
for the city. He thought they
should be given the first privilege of
labor. With Ihe contractors the
council could not do much but the
city work should be carried on so as
to give the first employment to these
citizens. He was going to lake this
up with the streets commitee. He
thought the other committees might
well make an effort along the line
of giving the preference to married
men who were paying taxes and
building up homes here.
Aid. .Mobley said that in every case
.here instances like this complained
of had been brought to his attention
he had seen that they got work.    If
.1. Hildi'A would take occasion to
bring these men's cases forward,
work would be found, be was satisfied. He told of men who had tendered on work coming to him and
complaining that they were not given
cont' ..cts even if they were higher
than th< ;e who got It.
The "Vitclics"
Aid. Hilditch said it was not the
men who were competent to be contractors  that   he  spoke  of.     It   was
the men who sought work. His attention   was  attracted   lo   the  city   pay
rolls where mosl  of the names ended in "vitcli," which showed the nationality.     The    contractors    could
well take care of themselves.  Foreman Thompson hud been approached]
on the question and he said thai men
had been scarce at the time they were
taken on.    Mr. Thompson had agreed
to   alter   this  and   he   believed   had
done so.
Aid. Mobley said thai because a
man's nam ended in "vltch" was
not sufficient reason why the council should  refuse  him  work.     Many

in Vancouver from the Queen Charlotte Islands where he recently
bought a tract of ten thousand acres
of timber, had considerable to say
aboul. the country In the neighborhood of .Mussel harbor and Naden
harbor and the Islands in general.
It will be, said Mr. Shields to tbe
News-Advertiser, one of the greatest
pulp producing countries in the world
for there are millions of aires ofe
spruce and any amount of water
power. Further, lie says, that the
land when cleaned will be the finest
kind of agricultural land that can be
found, much superior Indeed to lhe
small acreage which is available on
the .Mainland. The soil is very similar to that of Vancouver Island, is
very deep, and has already produced
the best quality of small fruits and
vegetables. The ultimate result will
be that the Queen Charlotte Islands
will bear the same relation to Prlucs
Rupert that Vancouver Island does
to the .Mainland.
The Dominion government lias already improved Masset Harbor, and
is now building a wharf there. There
is already quite a considerable tonnage of shipping, the cargoes consisting for tiie most part of lisli and lumber. Mr. Keefer, the government engineer, was there quite recently and
is greatly impressed with the country.
The timber consists chiefly ot
spruce and yellow cedar, the latter
Ijeing very valuable and bringing as
high as $100 a thousand feet in the
market, because of its scarcity. There
are large coal areas near Masset and
the whole country near there is staked for coal lands. There is a huge
amount of what is called floating
coal to be seen in the harbor sticking up all round the edges, and a
great deal of money is being spent
in tiie vicinity.

first timber claims were taken upon
the islands by a man named Taylor.

Liberals Buy Local   Paper to Promulgate the Policy of That
Loral .Syndicate Appeal' in Transaction,  Paying  High Price to
Former  Owners
The Optimist newspaper has
changed hands, passing now under
the control of the Liberal party and
will in future be conducted to further the cause of that side of politics.
The negotiations which resulted In
tiie transfer taking place have been
in progress for some little time past
and were closed only on Tuesday last
when the business was disposed of a'
a very lucrative figure as far as the
sellers were concerned.
The purchase of the Optimist Is
in line with the policy of the Ottawa
Liberals to organize Britisli Columbia thoroughly in an attempt to restore the party in the most western
province. For some time a party
organ has been sought in Prince Ru
pert, and the arrival in the city of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the other
leaders of the party was made the
occasion of further representations
along the line suggested by previous
representatives to Ottawa.
Since that time the move lias been
more actively put forward with the
result that the Optimist was purchased.
The paper that has just changed
hands has been recognized as the
organ of G. W. Morrow, who was instrumental in launching it. Mr. Morrow, who played an important part
in the Liberal party in the province
at one time, broke away from tha
control of the recognized guardians
of the destinies of that party and in
the conduct of his paper gave an independent support to the McBride
government, which he felt had done
what was right by the city of Prince
Rupert. The securing of the organ
by the Liberals is welcomed doubly
by that party inasmuch as it removes
one who was looked upon as a
"recalcitiant" from their midst.
The acquiring interests are represented by a local syndicate. The
names officially announced as the
provisional directors are F. G. Dawson, who conducted the negotiations,
A. .1. .Morris and A. M. Manson.
By the aid to be given by Ralph
Smith, as organizer, and a party
press under control of the party, the
work of whipping the forces into line
again is to be attempted.

The remarkable success of Russia's military flying men at the St.
Petersburg aviation meeting aroused
the enthusiasm of the masses, who
never expected to see anything successful done by the men in uniform.
Over 100,000 persons were present
when Lieut. Rudneff flew for an hour
and three-quarters and landed accurately inside a twelve-meter crease
which had been marked for him. Another officer remained in the air for
an hour and a half, while fourteen
flew for over an hour.

South  Africa's Aui to dipt.  Scott is
Subject of Criticism
An interesting event which the
elections have over-shadowed has
been the visit to South Africa of Captain Scott.
A good deal of interest exists in
South Africa In the voyage of the
Terra Nova, and vigorous protest has
been raised that the Union government should have seen fit to make
a grant of only $2,500 towards the
expedition. It is pointed out that if
it had not been for the daring and
restlessness of the explorer, South
Africa would never have reached her
present position on the high road to
The expressed views of the mayor
of Capetown, Sir Frederick Smith,
upon the position may serve as some
indication of the feeling in the colony
Sir Frederick stated to,a newspaper
representative that everybody was
"bitterly disappointed and surprised
at the feeble response of tbe government, but further representations
might probably cause a more worthy
donation to be made." He understood
that "at least five of the ministers
were in favor of more liberality."
Further in a leader on the subject, the Cape Times wrote: "We can
afford free railway passes to ex-members of vanished state parliaments;
we can also afford an illegal $300 to
each of the members of one of these
parliaments; and we can give to ministers salaries unparalleled ln the Dominions of the king's majesty; but
we can afford only £500 for an enterprise which, apart from its scientific
interest and importance is a moral
tonic to the whole Empire."

Condition   in

A despatch from St. Petersburg
states that Grand Vizier Hakkl
Pasha's quest for gold for Turkey
has provoked from Finance Minister
Kokovtzeff a categoric declaration
that Russia lias no intention of raising any foreign or internal loans and
that the current financial year
promises a surplus of 200,000,000
rubles (about $103,000,000) over
the estimated revenue. He says he
will not have to go to the banks for
the operation of converting Russia's
highest interest loan of 5 per cent
Into one of 4% per cent, as this is
now practicable because of Russia's
improved economic condition.
This declaration is regarded at St.
Petersburg as primarly addressed to
the financial side of the Austro-Ger-
man alliance and its Turkish policy.
Germany has never ceased to press
for a quotation of her securities on
the Paris Bourse, which she flrst
sought when she settled amicably
the Casablanca incident. There Is
now a movement in Berlin, which is
supported by the new foreign minister, Baron Kinderlin-Wnchter, to
try a fall with M. Pichon, the French
foreign minister, somewhat similar
to that by which the Kaiser and
Chancellor von Bulow engineered
tiie downfall of M. Dalcasse over
Morocco. M. Pichon has taken a
much stronger stand than wns expected in resisting Ihe advances upon
French capital from quarters which
tire nol politically co-operating with
M. Kokovtzeff lias let it. be known
that Russia, which used to take all
the money that France had to spart,
does not need It any more. To that
extent Russia can support the policy
of holding France's savings as a
weapon in tiie present European
duel. Tliis is regarded as of Immediate Importance here, whore there is
a widespread conviction Hint the
present Turkish regime and Young
Tiirkism will collapse inlo chaos
within  throe months.

In the development of this country
there has been ever on the frontier
the representatives of that ancient
organization the Hudson's Bay Company. Generation after generation
it has bad its traders well in advance
of the general trend of civilization,
doing a lucrative business for the organization by trading with the Indians and with the hardy class of
prospectors and explorers who have
made the country known to the
world. As the frontier receded the
company feil back with it.
The result has been that in Canada the old company of adventurers
trading in Hudson Bay has found the
scope of its operations now so altered
that an entirely new programme has
been arranged by the company in
conjunction with its work. The trade
on the outskirts of civilization is to
take a secondary place to another
branch of trade, that of the great
departmental store meeting the demands of the great centres.
This latter part of the business is
now to be fully developed. In consequence of this C. C. Chipman will
administer the lands and furs department of the company's business.
The stores from Fort William to
Victoria, 170 in number, will be under Mr. Herbert Burbidge, son of the
manager of Harrods, London, as general manager.
Mr. H. T. Loc.kyer, who for the
past fourteen and a half years has
been manager of the Hudson's Bay
company's interests in Vancouver,
has been appointed to an executive
position in the services under Mr.
Burbidge, and has gone to Winnipeg to confer there with the members of the directorate now in Canada in connection with his new official duties. Pending the appointment of Mr. Lockyer's successor, Mr.
A. P. Watkins will be acting-manager of the business in Vancouver.
It Is generally supposed .that Mr.
Burbidge will introduce a system
which will make the Hudson's Bay
the great rival of the Eaton interests
in this country, meeting the fullest
demands of the buyng public.

the usual order, he would give them
the text at the end Instead of at the
beginning. It would consist simply
in four words all beginning with
"f," filth, fever, food and files, and
they would find that all were connected.
At the conclusion of the address a
vote of thanks was moved by Mr.
Thomas Cunningham, Inspector of
fruit pests, and Dr. McKee, city bacteriologist, both testifying from their
own experience to the value of Professor  Hewitt's  remarks.
Advice of J. J. Hill—Falling Off of
Production Cause of High Prices
Danger From Insect Pointed Ont by
Dominion Entomologist
The perils of the common housefly
were vividly set forth before an audience by Professor Hewitt, Dominion
entomologist, in an instructive lecture in the Aberdeen school in Vancouver. Professor Hewitt's address
was illustrated and clarified by a
fine series of lantern slides, many of
them taken from miscroscopic views.
He showed that the common house
fly, with its smooth1 blue body and
beautiful gauzy wings, is, when magnified to ten. times its ordinary visible proportions, a hairy monster capable of carrying the germs of disease and death in every fibre of its
body. That it does so with dire effect, he also showed very clearly by
means of charts, which demonstrated unmistakably that the death rate
from enteric diseases rises with the
number of files.
The professor deprecated strongly
the carelessness often displayed by
dealers in meat, candies, and confectionery in allowing flies to run all
over their goods, defiling them and
depositing the germs of disease
wherever they travel. The pollution
of milk and its infection was also
largely due to files, and infant mortality would be senslhly diminished
if flies were kept out. The fly and
the mosquito were akin as the carriers of disease, and it was possible
to fight the danger from flies as it
had been from mosquitoes by removing their cause. The building of the
Panama canal by the American government had been made possible by
eradicating the mosquito and the disease that followed It. While he had
no hope that the housefly could ever
be exterminated, the pest might be
greatly diminished by the burning of
nil refuse and excrement and by Improved systems of sewerage.
In conclusion the professor said
that there was in Canada a great
movement for conservation, and
righlly so; but the conservation of
health was more important than that
of timber and minerals and water-
power, as al lthese would be useless
without people to enjoy them. The
gospel lie would preach was the pos-
pel  of public  health, and  reverting
Perhaps the most sound advice
which has been given to the people
of the northwest, in many years was
'.hat conveyed h tie message of
James J. Hill, th< "umpire builder,"
read at the Portland Fair and Live
Stock Exposition. A keen student of
national economic problems, Mr. Hill
ln his paper sounded the cry of "back
to the farm," but in a more logical
and practical manner than it has
been presented by anyone in the
Northwest. He pointed out the falling off in the production of cattle
and hogs as one direct cause of increased prices.
He showed that the export of food
stuffs in this country has decreased
by ha'f in the last ten years, and that
it will not be long, under present
conditions, until the United States
will not be producing enough food
for Its own people, not to mention
for export. He pointed out that the
raising of live stock was not only
becoming more profitable each year
and more necessary to the food supply of the country, but that by the
scientific use of the fertilizing agents
produced, the raising of good crops
is directly benefitted by the raising
of live stock. He expressed the belief that the acreage now under cultivation in this country would produce almost twice what It now does
if properly farmed, and pointed to
the raising of live stock as one
means toward the desired end. His
advice is summed up in the words,
"The cattle and hogs and sheep that
are needed for home use and for export, to feed the world and reduce
the prices that impair our standard
of l'ving, are needed equally to diversify our farm industry and maintain the fertility of the soil.   Nature

ma^es no mistakes, and to follow her
leading is to walk toward prosperity
and peace."
The death of Stanley Ketchell
from a bullet wound and the passing
away of this famous exponent of the
fistic art, now gives Billy Papke, the
Illinois Thunderbolt, the undisputed
right to the middleweight championship. The passing of the "Bengal"
will also seriously affect the plans
of Hugh Mcintosh, who bad matched
the deceased against Tom Thomas,
and a number of the pick of England's fighters.
Of all American fighters who stepped through the ropes and performed
in the squared circle, Ketchell,
through his gameness, ability and
clever work won the hearts of the
fight fans of the entire western hemisphere. A fighter by nature, a cool-
headed, daring two handed mixer,
Ketchell took a chance that few men
of his size cared to take, when one
year ago he met the terrible Jack
Johnson and was defeated by the
Galveston black In twelve rounds at
the Colma arena, San Francisco.
Ketchell did something that few
other fighters did with the black man
—he put the big ebony champion on
the floor In the twelfth round of this
affair. But Ketchel! was too small
to go long with the big fellow, and
Johnson ended Ketchell's championship aspiration by putting him to
sleep. Ever since that battle Ketchell has been deteriorating, and
though he failed to gain the heavyweight title and wrest the championship from the son of Ham, he was
able to retain the middleweight belt.

Scouts Who are Being Given Instruction
for Navy of Merchant
Movement   is   Spreading in Britain
And Many Are Joining the
Although the public is not generally acquainted with the fact, there
exist in England at the present time
some 3,o00 boys who form a corps of
naval Boy Scouts. These boys, members of the Boys' Naval Brigade and
Training Brigs, are known among
themselves as "Sea Scouts," and
their duties and drills are very much
the same as those of the Baden-
Powell Scouts, only their training is
strictly confined to naval matters.
The movement has not been initiated for a very long period, but during the time the organizers have been
at work their efforts have met with a
ready response, and the idea is popular everywhere. The organization
has as its chairman Mr. R. A. Yer-
burgh, M.P., and Rear-Admiral Sir
R. Massie Blomfleld and Vice-Ad-
miral H. L, Fleet are vice-chairmen.
On the committee are many representative gentlemen, Including Rear-
Admiral R. W. Clutterbuek, Captain
J. W. Osborne, R.N., Sir John Cor-
rington, the Uean of Rochester, the
iDean of Norwich, Mr. H. W. May-
nard (of the Union-Castle Line), Mr.
J. Glynn (of the Glynn Line), Mr.
Alfred Read (of the Powell Line),
and Sir John Gray Hill.
The motives which prompted those
responsible for the inception of the
"Sea Scouts" movement are these:
There are many city lads who, having ceased to be errand boys, look
about them for something better to
do, but who look in vain, because
there is nothing for which they aye
particularly qualified. The need for
English young men in the Mercantile
service is shown by the fact that over
37,500 foreign seamen are employed
In the English Mercantile service,
representing an annual wage list of
2,000,000 pounds. If the "Sea Scout"
Is trained from youth to understand
mercantile matters there should be
little difficulty in getting into the
service. Here is the most important branch of English industry—that
of shipping—in want of English sailors, while ther are hundreds of boys
in every town and city looking for
some permanent employment.
"Sea Scout" depots are springing
up all over the country. At Reading
there is a fully equipped brig at the
disposal of the lads, and there are
brigs at Cardiff, Oxford, Gloucester,
Kingston, Norwich and such places.
Under the scheme the boy is attached to a local battalion. On the nearest river, or, in the case of seaports,
on the sea, there is a brig, which is
used by the boys as training quarters and a club. They are taught to
man and unload a gun, they are Instructed In all the duties which come
within tiie range of an ordinary A.B.
After they have completed their
training they are ready for the navy
or the mercantile service, and are
given much help In any efforts they
may exert to get into either. The
work of controlling the whole scheme
is undertaken by a central authority,
and the method on which they work
is as follows: Constant communication is maintained between shipowners and the different training depots
whereby boys desirous of entering
the Mercantile Marine will be
brought to tbe notice of ownersre -
quiring hands. Boys who have been
to sea will on landing be able to call
at the nearest training depot, and
there receive any help or advice
which they may want. Organizers
will periodically visit the different
depots for the purpose of examining
the boys, and generally to advise and
Instruct them. Special certificates
will be issued to boys who have completed their training, and medals will
be presented from time to time for
Good evidence of the efficiency of
this movement Is seen in the fact
that from the Windsor depot alone
146 boys have been found employment ln various capacities on the sea.
There are, of course, certain marine
training institutions existing today,
and many of them, such as the Navy
League Training Home at Llscard,
will co-operate with the new movement. If work goes on as rapidly
as It is doing now at the end of the
year there should be at least 10,000
"Sea Scouts" ln training. The committee desire funds to carry on their
work, and any contributions should
be sent to Vice-Admiral Fleet, the
Boys' Naval Brigade, 39 Victoria St.,
Alteration to be Made   at   Windsor
Before King George and Queen
Mary take up their residence at
Windsor Castle, certain alterations
and re-arrangements of the private
apartments will be necessary. These
apartments, which are never open to
the public, are situated on the east
and south sides of the Grand Quadrangle, and are connected by a corridor over 500 feet in length.
Many thousands of pounds were
spent on the royal rooms when King
Edward came to the throne, In order
lo bring the palace more into accord with modern requirements, and
a special sum was voted by parliament for the purpose. When King
George was staying reecntly at Frog-
more House he spent several hours
going over the private apartments,
but his majesty and Queen Mary are
to pay another visit before any definite instructions are given.
Very few structural alterations are
necessary, after the work that has
been carried out by the lord chamberlain's department during the last
ten years, but a rearrangement of tha
furniture and ornaments will have to
be effected. All the personal property of Kink Edward and Queen
Alexandra will be removed to Sand-
ringham; otherwise ft would become
the property of the crown. When
this Is done, the rooms will be refurnished to suit the tastes of their
It will, of course, be necessary to
provide additional accommodation
for the children of the king and
queen. The suite of rooms in the
Chester Tower has been set aside
for the younger princes, and here a
nursery and schoolroom have been
fitted up, with kitchen and every
other convenience, and a special staff
of servants will look after the welfare of the children. These rooms
were used by Princess Henry of Bat
tenberg's children, and adjoin the
Victoria tower, which served as a
nursery for Queen Victoria's family.
They command a fine view of the
long Walk and Windsor Forest.
There could hardly be a more ideal
spot for children. The rooms are
lofty, and from every window can be
seen a magnificent stretch of beau-
liful woodland scenery.
Just below the castle, towards
Frogmore, Is a cricket ground with
a handsome pavilion, which was constructed on the instructions of the
late king for the use of his grand
children. The Prince of Wales and
Prince Albert have often taken part
in most interesting and exciting
games on this delightful pitch, and
in the near future their younger
brothers will follow suit.
For the time being the king and
queen will stay at Frogmore when
the court is in residence at Windsor,
but the princes will have full access
to the castle grounds, as the two
residences are very near each other.
Their magesties are very fond of
Frogmore, and it is here that their
children in the last few years have
been chiefly brought up. Both the
king and queen take a great interest In all their children's games and
pastimes, and her majesty is never so
happy as when joining with the
younger children in their games in
the Frogmore grounds. Their majesties have always been generous
supporters of the local institutions,
and they have made a practice of
dealing with local traders as far as
As their majesties have no country residence apart from Frogmore,
it is expected that King George will
make Windsor Castle more of a private residence, especially as It is in
such close touch with London.
All things considered, Windsor
Castle is probably one of the best i
royal residences in Europe. There
are seventeen stale apartmnts, forty-
eight rooms, comprising the spacious
kitchen, pantry, confectionery, vegetable an dother store rooms, seventy-
nine bedrooms, sixty-five sitting
rooms, and rooms containing 231
beds for servants. The length of
passages Is about 1,700 yards. The
private partments include the queen's
boudoir, the private audience chamber, the oak room, the tapestry room,
the white, green and crimson drawing rooms, the state dining room,
the armory, and the gold pantry,
which contains a collection of gold
plate valued at £1,800,000.

Information Given Out Relative to the
Climate of the
Frank J. P. Crlan Gives Valuable Information With Respect to Alberta and Saskatchewan
A booklet has just been issued by
the department of the interior which
incorporated two reports by Mr.
Frank J. P. Crean, C.E., of his explorations in Saskatchewan and Alberta, made in 1908 and 1909 at the
order of the Dominion government.
These reports contain a vast quantity of information, covering an area
comprising some forty-three million
acres in extent, and it will be found
of the greatest value to the prospective settler, whether he be agriculturalist, stockraiser, miner or com-
A very considerable proportion of
the area is shown by Mr. Crean's reports to be well adapted for mixed
farming and to possess natural resources of timber, hay, fish and
game, which will be of much value to
the newcomer. The results of cattle
raising in this vast district have been
most encouraging. According to the
reports of the bureau of plant industry, there have been found in Siberia,
Mongolia and Northern Manchuria,
three varieties of the yellow flowered alfalfa growing and flourishing in
a very much more severe climate
than that which prevails in this area.
To return to the actual report of
Mr. Crean, he says that the climate
throughout seems well adapted for
raising any cereal. The flrst part of
the report refers to that part of
Saskatchewan north and west of
Prince Albert, and as far north as
the Churchill river. He quotes from
the report of Professor John Macoun
which says that in considering the
possibilities of agricultural development, there is one fact which must be
kept steadily in mind, and that is the
.ow altitude, and the long day, which
are fixed conditions and will always
remain the same. As to the hours
of sunshine per day, the average Is
always greater than that at Prince
Albert and far greater than that at
At the time this report was made a
lack of growing crops was manifest,
but this is accounted for by the fact
that the native had found it less
laborious and more profitable to confine himself to the harvesting of the
natural hay which abounds, and
which he sells to the freighters.
The gross area explored in the
first report amounted to some twenty
two million acres, of which three
million acres is water Of the rest
fully five million acres is suitable
for settlement as soon as the roads
are Improved, and a large portion is
swamp land which could be readily
reclaimed at a moderate expense.
As to access, the travel at the time
of the report went almost entirely
via Edmonton and the Athabasca
the former town to McMurray will
Landing, .but the new railway from
facilitate matters to ap enormous extent.
The soil throughout the country
varies to a considerable degree, but
on the whole appears to be very fertile, while In some parts it is so to
a wonderful degree. Particularly is
this found to be the case around
Lake La Roche. The topography of
tbe country also varies considerably.
In the more southerly portion along
the west side the country is broken
up by deep coulees and the prairie
is rolling with round topepd hills
and is admirably suited for ranching.
In the northern part It becomes flat
and low and there Is considerable
swamp land which Is detrimental to
tiie making of good roads.
The climate Is most favorable and
the "frozen north"  Is  a  misnomer.
The winter Is cold, but    no    colder
than the settled portions of the province.    The first frost  registered  by
McCrean occurred on the second of
October, when the thermometer fell
to twenty-four degrees F., but this
did not freeze the potato tops in the [
least and garden truck therein was .
untouched. Lakes began to freeze on I
October  20th.    As to rainfall, It is'
ample   and   uniform,   occurring   for
the most part In the early summer,
nor Is the snowfall excessive.
As a ranching country this district
has much to recommend It, as the
report says hay abounds and water
and shelter are easily obtained. The
country is principally open and dotted with bluffs of poplar and hay Is
to be had everywhere. The grass
cures easily and the rolling hills nre
soon blown clear of snow. The valley of the Clearwater river woud furnish the finest kind of a catte range.

Tiie local hospital now Hearing
completion lias not been officially
named, we believe. In view of this
it might be wise to commemorate the
name of t lie late King in connection
with It. It, the Old Country thai
course is being followed and in most
of ciiies where it is sought to continue the memory of the late King
Edward it is being done in connection with hospital and other philan
trophic institutions. The King Ed
ward Memorial Hospital might very
well be adopted as the name of the
local Institution, we think.
The announcement that the Provincial Government has in view the
construction of a line of wagon road
through Cariboo up the Nechaco and
the Bulkley Valleys to Hazelton is
ot importance to the whole of the
northern interior. Railways have
their uses and play an important
part In carrying trade. There are
however purposes to which the railway cannot be put and which must
be filled by the more ancient way,
that of the wagon road.
Such a means of communication as
is suggested will mean that an easy
way will be found for the pioneers
and those Interested in the various
parts that will be reached to invade
the great domain tbat awaits explication.
The Liberal party of this city has
attained what it has long been seeking, a newspaper organ. This has
been accomplished by the purchase
of the Optimist, which will henceforth be devoted to the advancemenl
of the cause of Liberalism in the city
In an attempt to extend the scope of
its influence as far as possible the
general public is being asked to take
stock in the enterprise and thus become financially bound up to the
party. The move is certainly an Insidious method of propagating a political crusade.
The Journal, however, cannot help
but feel somewhat complimented by
the move which has been taken. It
is a move to introduce a system of
political force into the city which is
nndoubtedly traceable to the service
which Tiie Journal has sought to give
the public.
Towards the wide circle of managers who are now launching into
the enterprise The Journal has no
personal animosity. They are for
the most part, we believe, treading a
new path and will doubtless be richer
in experience within another twelve
months as a result of their newspaper connection.
JF. S. Willison Sounds Winning ns to
Feeling in the West
If Mr. J. S. Willison, editor of the
Toronto News, had the illusion that
the public sentiment on this coast
would change on the subject, of Asiatic labor, his recent visit has corrected this error. The Toronto News
jives this account of Ihe situation: —
"The east cannot afford to have
iny illusions as to the strength of
Ihe feeling on the Pacific coast
Igainsl Asiatic labor, and particularly agalnsl the incoming of Japanese.
The people of Vancouver and Victoria heard Sir Wilfrid Laurier with
respect, but he did nol change their
views nor dispel their uneasiness. It
Is folly in Imagine thai only the
labor unions are hostile to Oriental
Immigration. The feeling is common
lo the whole population outside of
Ihe canners and saw mill owners and
perhaps the financial Interests by
n'liicli they are supoprted. For the
Chinese as domestics there is an Improved feeling; the Japanese are the
Objecl of increasing fear and disfavor. It is not believed, although
Ihe News lias no conclusive evidence
to offer one way or the other, that
Ihe agreement with Japan limiting
immigration from that country is ob-
jerved, It is insisted that Japanese
llsembark al the upper ports, that
Ihe invasion assumes formidable dimensions, thai they are a social and
Industrial danger, and that falling
some radical reversal of policy, British Columbia must become sugstau-
tlally a province of Japan. Moreover, the Asiatics are extending into
the prairie country, and thus the
area of disaffection is steadily enlarged. The coast people recognize
the gravity of the labor problem.
They know that without a great supply of workers tho development of
the country must be retarded. But
nothing will avail against thede termination to have a 'White Canada,'
and parliament cannot afford to uiis-
understand or neglect the situation."

in the Rig Cities
Color photography has been so
improved by a member of the Royal
Botanic society bhal three negatives
representing the primary colors can
lie laken simultaneously by instantaneous or lime exposures Results
in photographing flowers, fruit, sunsets, and autumn foliage are marked improvements on anything hitherto accomplished.
"There has been a great deal of
talk heard in Canada with reference
io depletion of our national resources
yet except as regards the wasting of
our forests that charge is scarcely
well founded," said Hon. Clifford
Sifton, chairman of the Dominion
conservation commission in addressing the St. Catharines Canadian club
"As regards our forests, we are
open to severe blame," he added.
"During this past summer, the present year remember, mort timber has
been destroyed in Canada through
fire than by the lumberman's axe In
the last twenty years."
Mr. Sifton blamed the railway for
wanton destruction and cohgratulat.
;d the country on the fact that legislation was to be introduced touching
on the question. Mentioning the fact
that the supply of merchantable timber in the United States would only
last for thirty years at the most, and
that if the United States were given
a free hand at Canadian timber after
this in five years more there would
be no more timber left in Canada.
Mr. Sifton declared that If propel
steps for conservation were taken,
and the question treated in a sane
and broadminded manner, Canada's
timber supplies would last the country for all time.
The speaker took a rather pessimistic view of things in the United
"There are many more rich men
in the United States today than there
was twenty-five years ago," he said,,
"yet at the same time there are many
more thousands of men in that country today who have not enough to
eat than .there were a quarter of a
century ago, and the United States,
not having made any provision for
its enormously increasing population,
that country is rapidly approaching
a condition in which the great bulk
oi its population will not have
enough to eat, or to properly clothe
"There is no country on earth
which is so rapidly approaching that
condition as is the United States,
which wil without doubt soon have
a population of 125,000,000," he continued.
Mr. Sifton declared that there was
nothing which should now prevent
Canada from growing into a great
nation. He touched on the subject
of slums, which seemed almost Inevitable in all great cities, but he saw
no reasons why Canada should not be
able to grow into a great nation without slums. It only required honest,
intellingent planning by the people.
Even Toronto and Montreal could rid
themselves of these festering sores
in their midst; it was not yet too
late. "We can have, if we choose, and
go about it right, a nation without
slums in our cities, or poverty in the
country districts, and peopled with a
population able to get plenty to eat
and wear," he said.
Mr. Sifton said that his commission placed the highest importance
on the matter of public health. Pollution otf rivers and streams with a
question that must be dealt with In
the most efficient manner, and tuberculosis must be fought scientifically.
While drawing attention to the
fact that in Canada today we have
water powers aggregating the vast
total of eighteen millions of horse
power, Mr. Sifton advocated the conservation 'of this splendid asset for

Western Cities  of  the  United
Anxious to Show Large
Tacoma Was One of the Most Glaring Instances of Padded
Staggered by the enormous growth
shown by the returns of the new census for a number of western cities,
Director Durand, of the census bureau, ordered an investigation, the
result of which is the announcement
that gross frauds had been perpetrated.
Mr. Durand gave out also a letter
from President Taft, directly that
persons implicated in the alleged
frauds be prosecuted.
Cities speciiieially mentioned as
being affected by the frauds are Tacoma, Seattle and Aberdeen; Portland, Ore.; Minneapolis, Minn.;
Boise, Idaho, and Fort Smith, Ark.,
but it is said that there are many
The result ot a second enumeration
of Tacoma, Wash, was announced today. The city shows a population of
82,972, an increase of 45,258, or 120
per cent over the population of 1900.
The first figures turned in for Tacoma were 116,248. In other words,
tiie actual population was padded to
the extent of 33,296, which would
have meant a further addition of 40
per cent.
These additions were made in 34
out of the  73  enumeration districts
in Tacoma. In some of these districts the number reported proved to
be several times greater than the
actual population.
In ten districts enumerated the figures of the census showed 29,753
names whereas, the correct number
was found to be 11,646. ,
The statement issued by Director
Durand consists in the main of a letter from himself addressed to Secretary Nagel of the department of commerce and labor, dated October 8,
In which the whole case is presented,
and of a brief letter from President
Taft to Mr. Nagel, dated Oct 11. The
letter stated": "I have read Director
Durand's letter and agree with him
that it ought to be published. The
cases of all those who appear to have
violated the law should be Investigated by the grand jury and if sufficient evidence is found to justify
it they should be indicted and prosecuted at once. Nothing will so conduce to securing a proper census as
the prosecutions of those who attempt a fraud upon the law.
"I am led to believe that the present census has been much freer from
attempted frauds than any previous

Part of the rolling stock of the
Portland Canal Short Line has gone
north to be used In construction

will be another link in the chain of
wireless stations operated by the Dominion government along the B. C.
At present there are seven Dominion stations between the Straits and
the international boundary on the

at Point Grey will be completed in
the course of about two weeks, and
a twenty-four hour service established there. Two sets of Marconi and
two sets of United Wireless Instruments will be located In the new

According to a statement recently
made by Mr. Hugh Allan at the formal opening of the Allan Line's west-
end offices, the new vessels for this
well known St. Lawrence fleet are to
he rivals in size, speed and luxury ot
accommodation of the New York
ships. There are to be three of them
and they will each be over 700 feet
long. They are to be propelled by
means of Parsons' steam turbines,
and their sea speed will be between
twenty-one and twenty-three knots.
Their accommodation for passengers
will far excel that provided by any
existing vessel on the route, and also
that of many which are based in the
new world on New York. There is
something peculiarly appropriate in
this, because the Allan flag has
pioneered many progresses on the.
North Atlantic. There were notable
Allan clipper ships on the western
ovean before the days of steam, and
the earliest turbine-driven Atlantic
liners—the Victorian and the Virginian—were Allan vessels.
Mr. Allan's announcement was correctly interpreted to mean that two
years hence the Allan line will carry
out the Canadian mail contract without assistance. On the following day
at any rate, this Impression left by
his statement was semi-offictally confirmed. The Canadian Pacific Is,
therefore, prospectively free to develop its own service independently.
It Is assumed that it will proceed
to do this by transferring the Empress of Britain and the Empress of
Ireland from the Atlantic to the Pacific and ordering new vessels for the
St. Lawrence service. According to
some accounts, it has long been of a
mind to do so With 22-knot Allan
liners on the Atlantic and tbe Canadian Grand Trunk advantageously
based on the Pacific at Prince Rupert
the inducement to move in the manner indicated s obviously greater
than ever.
In a recent Issue of tbe London
Times Sir William It. White, K.C.B.,

Star and Hamburg-American leviathans, with the corresponding figures
ror the Great Eastern. He adopted
the uniform draft of 34 feet, that
being the deepload draft at which the

Lessons to be Learned
Sir William states that the new
vessels of the White Star and the
Hamburg-American lines represent a
great step in advance of the largest
trans-Atlantic steamers of the "Intermediate" type previously built.
More than forty years after the
Great Eastern began her trans-Atlantic service (June 17, 1860) she
stil rema'',ed unsurpassed in size.
In 1903 the Cedric surpassed her
but her "under-deck" tonnage is
about 17,100 tons, as against 18,-
800 tons of the Great Eastern.
There is, he said, no reason for supposing that further increase cannot
lie made in the dimensions and speed
of ships if commercial considerations
should makes that course desirable,
and if the necessary financial provision were made for the construction
of suitable dock accommodation at
terminal ports. Shipowners nnd
dock proprietors, not naval arch Heels
and marine engineers, will ,he said,
have to make the decision where and
when increase of size and speed of
steamers shall stop. He added that
further increase in the size of steamers would undoubtedly be accompanied with economy in the cost of
over-sea transport of cargoes, but if
Increase in size and carge capacity
should be associated with longer
periods in port, made necessary by
the collection, shipment and discharge of larger cargoes, or if, as
a rule, full cargoes could not be secured for these very large vessels,
the consequent earning power, together with the increased cost of the
ships, the larger allowances for depreciation and interest on capital,
and the lessening proportionate service    al    sea,   might outweigh anyi

Items of General Interest From Centres in British Columbia.
Victoria.—A number of timber
dealers in the province are greatly
interested in the action of the United
States federal officials in Boston
against the Redeemable Investment
company, as they expected Rev. Mr.
Plass to arrive in Victoria to settle
some claims in connection with the
big timber area, covering 23 miles on
Alice Arm, on the northern mainland
of British Columbia.
The timber areas acquired on
Alice Arm were bought by the Norman Investment company, which lias
the controlling interest in them some
eastern financiers whose identity is
not known here being also intersted.
Rev. Mr. Plass stated here he Intended to turn the timber limits over
to the Redeemable Investment company. Local men who knew him
were surprised regarding the developments at Boston. They say Mr.
Plass, who has made a number of
trips here, asw formerly Interested In
mines near Darrington, Washington,
before the Redeemable Investment
company was formed.
Merrltt.—Rapid progress is being
made with construction work on the
thirty-mile section of the Kettle Valley line between Merrltt in the Nicola
Valley and Railway Pass. Ten miles
of roadbed soutii from Merrltt are
almost completed and the rails will
be laid next month.
Mr. James A. Macdonald of the
firm of Messrs. Macdonald, Gzowskl
& Co. which has the contract, stated
that the entire work has been sublet,
600 graders being employed at different points along the route. The
remaining twenty miles will be graded during the coming winter and the
rails will be laid early next spring.
The work on the southern portion of
the route Is heavier than in the
vicinity of Merrltt.
Work on the thirty-mile extension
of the line west from Midway in the
Boundary district is also being rushed. Grading work and clearing of
the right of way are being carried on.
The contract is being carried out by
Messrs. L. M. Rice & Co., Ltd.
the evidence against him shows that
defalcations have been going on since
1908, during which time as provincial constable and acting government
agent he collected in fines and revenue taxes some $1,800, which
should have been turned Into the
treasury of the province, but was
instead converted to his own use.
In extenuation of Woollacott's offence it is said that he has had to
support an aged mother and a blind
sister, besides the younger members
of Ihe family and that he used the
funds in their behalf, intending to repay them when his father's estate
was settled. Previous to his arrest.
Woollacott was considered one of the
most efficient officers on the force,
and more than once did notable work
in tracking down criminals in the

Victoria. — Capt. Clive Phillips-
Wolley has left on a tour of Canada
on behalf of the Navy League .of
Great Britain and the branches in
Canada. He was asked to make the
trip through the Dominion by the
officers of the Navy League and consented some time ago, Arrangements
have been made for addresses by the
well known imperialist at Winnipeg,
Montreal, Hamilton and Halifax and
probably speeches will also be made
at other cities in the interest of the
Navy League,
Capt. Wooley said before leaving
on his eastern tour that he was not
going with any party affiliation whatever. His views on the naval policy
were well known. He believed that
the Dominion naval policy should be
,i pported as a policy in that it was
right as far as it went. The people I
should accept what had been given,
but seek to obtain much more. He
did not seek to find fault with what
had been provided for the Canadian
navy, but he proposed to ask for
something more than had been accomplished.
The special postage stamp issued
in commemoration of the South
African Union is of the size of an
ordinary Transvaal revenue stamp.
The head of King George makes the
central feature, framed in an oval
and at the Corners are the coats-of-
arms of two of the old colonies, the
Cape and Natal, and the shields of
the late republics of the Transvaal
and the Orange Free State. The underlying principle is to represent
the union of the two great races, and,
therefore, the coat-of-arms of the late
Orange River colony has been ignored. The color of the stamp is dark
An idea of the minuteness of the
detail engrossed on the stamp may be
gathered from the fact that under
the shields of the republics and the
arms of the two colonies are their respective mottoes. The only other letterpress on the stamp consists of the
word "postage" in English and Dutch
The preparation of a general set of
postage stamps for use by the Union
has not yet been put in hand, there
still being a large stock of stamps of
the old colonies to be used up.

It  is  Now  Before tbe  Courts in  the
City of Vancouver
A. S. Levine, a contractor, from
Prince Rupert, came up for speedy
trial before Judge Mclnnes in Vancouver a few days ago on a charge of
false pretences. It was alleged that
he had obtained $1,800 from the
Stewart, Mercantile company of the
town of that name, by representing
that he was the owner of certain
horses and other property, which it
is now alleged that he does not possess. The case, It will b e remembered, was first brought up in this city.
In the course of the proceedings it
was found that an essential witness
as to the ownership of the horses was
now In Fernie, and at the request of
Mr. McKay, the crown prosecutor,
the further hearing was adjourned
till October 22 In order that the witness might he brought. Mr. D.
Donaghy, who appeared for Levine,
objected strongly, as his client had
been balled out for $2,000 by citizens
of Prince Rupert, and as the ball
would not hold good here It would
mean that Levine would have to go
lo gaol for a week.
Judge Mclnnes agreed that If ball
for the same amount could be secured here be would be glad to recognize it. The bail was afterwards secured.
The late Mr. W. Thomson Brown,
formerly of California, a native of

In proposing to make amends to
Dickens' children and grandchildren
for the loss of income because of
their not benefitting by the modern
copyright law, the Strand magazine
proposes this method of raising "deferred royalties."
"It is estimated that there are 2 4,-
000,000 copies of Dickens' works extant, allowing for loss through wear
and tear. Were it conceivable that
every possessor of one of these volumes were to pay one penny in super-
royalty it needs little knowledge of
arithmetic to arrive at tbe sum of
£100,000.    But this is inconceivable.
"Many might have copies of Dickens' works on their shelves and yet
feel no sense of personal gratitude
toward the author. Were a quarter
of the number to consent that each
volume should bear a Dickens' stamp
certifying that a 'deferred royalty' of
one penny had been paid, a very
large sum might be realized without
trouble, without expense and without
"This is the scheme which we propose and which, unless some unforeseen obstacle arises, will be duly car
ried into effect. In itself this Dickens stamp will be a work of art, yet
unobstrusive, small, simple and of a
tint to suit the character of the
"Numerous famous Dickens lovers
—and am'ong these are numbered
some of the most exalted in the land
—have already been approached in
the matter and have promised that
each colume of the works of the master they own shall bear a copy of this
Dickens stamp. The stamp will be
on sale all over the world during the
year 1911, and then on the 100th
birthday of the creator of Pickwick
and Weller, Tiny Tim and Little
Nell, the Dickens fellowship would
be enabled to hand the total sum to
the representatives of Dickens' fam-
iy to make such use of it as they
"Today there survive three children and seventeen grandchildren ot
Charles Dickens. Some of these,
bearing his name, are through no
fault of their own, in circumstances
which must deeply concern, not to
say pain lovers of Dickens. Three
are in receipt of trifling civil list
pensions. It is not that any of these
complain of their lot.    Far from it.
"The fact that they are obliged to
earn a precarious livelihood each accepts with cheerfulness. No, It is not
that. The question is rather, What
would Dickens himself say were he
alive today—were he to behold hundreds of thousands of his books
teeming from the press, millions
turning to him for comfort and entertainment and spiritual refreshment, laughing at his fun and weeping over his pathos, enjoying to the
full all that feast he so bounteously
spread before them, while those
grandchildren whom he loved are
driven to accept a government pension of £25 per annum."

Now comes the positive announcement from Hugh Mcintosh, that our
own Tommy Burns, and the Pride of
the Bean City, Sam Langford, have
been matched to meet sometime
within five months. Tommy has evidently forgotten that bad ankle, and
is now willing to go on with the Tar
Baby. This fight will be held ln
London, and will doubtless be one of
the big events of the sporting calendar for the coming year.
Leaving all prejudice and race antipathy aside, it must be said that
Tommy is going to have no easy time
and that If he does beat Langford
it will only be after a long drawn
battel. Langford and BurnB, however, will be able to put up the proper kind of a fight, and It should be
well attended by England's sporting
A glimpse over the fistic happenings of the past week shows that the
present champion, Jack Johnson, ln
addition to being the best man of
the ring today, Is really something ot
a financier, and that if J. Pierpont or
John D Rockefeller do not hurry the
Galveston Black will be grabbing
some of their loose change. Jack is
something of a manager, too, and at
present handling his own affairs, is
keeping the sporting public guessing.
Jack Is still dickering with Sam
Langford, but no more progress toward the making of a match between
the two dark ones has been done
than on the day when Jack laid low
the "Hope."
Johnson wants a side bet of $20,-
000 before he goes on with Langford,
and in this he shows good business
sense. Should the two colored men
go on together, they would not draw
a very big house, as a great deal of
race antipathy still exists In the
States and Australia. If the two do
go on together, the only place where
they would draw anything of a house
would be in London, as the race feel-
ingi s not strong there. There would
not be much in it for any promoter
to attempt to put this pair together
in either Australia or the States.
For this reason Johnson wants the
big side bet and according to all
principles of the sporting game is entitled to It. Should he go on with
Langford he would be risking his
title and before he attempts anything
like this he wants to see that he is
well paid for It Jack would not
consider a fight unless there was
something like a $25,000 purse in it.
Two world's records were broken
and two others equalled at the meet-
lug of the Kentucky Horsebreeders'
Association at Lexington, Ky., a few
days ago. Native Bell set a new
world's record for three-year-old
trotting fillies by going a mile In
2:06 1-4. The new mark was made
in a trial against the record of 2.07,
made here in 1908 by Leading Lady.
Earl Jr. furnished the other sensation by smashing the world's record for the three fastest last auar-
ters ever paced In a race. This happened In the 2.05 pace, when he pac.
ed the last quarter of the first heat
In :28 3-4, the last quarter of the
third heat In :28, and the last quarter In the final heat In :29 1-t General H. equalled the record for the
fastest third heat trotted in a race
when ne negotiated the mile in 2; 0b
3-4 in the 2:07 trot. Senish Queen
equalled the world's record in a race
for the fastest fifth heat trotted in a
race when she negotiated the mile
in 2:07 3-4.
Silent Brigade won the Lexington
stakes for two-yearolds In straight
heats and established avnew record
for the event when he went the mile
in 2:10 3-4. This was 2 1-2 seconds
faster than the record for the race,
made by Helen Hale in 1907.
Captain Tommy Gifford, of the
New Westminsters, has made his
"positively" last apearance in a lacrosse uniform. Hereafter his
brothers, Jimmle and Hugh, will uphold the reputation of the family a9
lacross players while Tom will probably occupy a seat on the side lines
or near the dressing room door with
his brother Billy, also a past master
in the game, and his father also an
enthusiastic past player.
"Farewell! Good luck to you all.
Now, then, boys, buck up!"
These words written on the menu
cards by Lord Hawke himself, to'd
the Yorkshire cricketers, who were
entertained by his lordship at Wig-
hill Park, that the captain who had
led them for twenty-five years, and
had played for the county since 1881,
had retired from first-class cricket.
No .official announcement has yet
been, but it is understood that at
the meeting of the Yorkshire committee this week Lord Hawke's retirement will be formerly known,
says the Sheffield Exchange.
Lord Hawke's retirement is the
most notable,  the  most  interesting
and will be the most regretted by
cricketers since W. G. Grace said
good-bye to important cricket. Bince
he had played hardly at all for the
county during the last two seasons,
the Yorkshire captain's retirement
was not unexpected, but nevertheless
the announcement strikes a distinct
note of sadness.
Not only does Yorkshire lose a
great captain and sportsman and a
fine cricketer, but another member
of what was called the "old" Yorkshire team—although it is actually
only ten years since it was in the
height of ItB power—has dropped out
The late Frank Milllgan, claimed by
the South African war, was the first
to go, and then followed Frank Mitchell; T. L. Taylor, Wainwright, the
late ack Brown, Huncliffe, and, as
recently as last year, David Hunter,
now Lord Hawke has gone, and
Hirst, Denton, Rhodes and Haigh are
the only members of the old band
Lord Hawke, who, after getting into the eleven at Eton, received his
Blue at Cambridge in 882, flrst
played for Yorkshire when a freshman at Cambridge in 1881. He was
then the Hon. Martin Hawke, and
the team, of which he became captain In 1883, consisted entirely of
professionals. From that time until
1908 he played regularly for the
county, with the exception of 1885,
when he only played In one match.
His highest aggregate for Yorkshire
in a season is 1,005, in 1895; his biggest score, 166, against Warwickshire in 1896.
Altogether he made ten centuries
for the county during his career, but,
needless to say, no statistical statement of runs scored can give the
slightest indication of the real work
for the county. He had been, perhaps, the greatest captain the game
has even known.
Miss Combe, daughter of Harvey
Combe, the well known golfer, of
Victoria, won the Pacific Northwest

played much the better golf and won

Herbert S. Griggs, of Tacoma, and
R. H. MacLeay, of Portland, qualified

Well Known Railway Contractor Who
Died Recently Had Interesting
Some   of   the   Successes Which Attended His Short Experience
as Builder
M. J. Heney, the well known railroad builder, who went to his reward
at the age of forty-six years, settled
flrst in Victoria when he came west
from Ottawa in 1888 and moved afterwards to Seattle. He was one of
the best known railway contractors
in the west. He was born in Pembroke county, Ontario. His first work
in contracting, and the basis of his
fortune, was the construction of the
north end of the Seattle, Lake Shore
& Eastern railroad, between Sedro-
Woolley and Sumas, about forty
miles, and he made money on the
work. After completing tliis contract he embarked In the general contracting business and went to Alaska
in 1S96, two years ahead of the
Klondike rush. He installed a hydraulic plant for Ihe Anchor Point
Mining company on Cook inlet. He
completed this work during his first
year in Alaska.
His next big contract was the construction of the White Pass & Yukon
railroad, and when the last spike had
been driven in the band of steel that
marked the completion of the road
he made an extended trip around the
His work in the construction of
the Copper River & Northwestern
railroad, the largest cotnract of his
life, was liis last undertaking, and
death broke in upon him while the
last part of this work had been mapped out. .Mr. Ileney was a stockholder in this road, in the Alaska
Steamship company, and i he Harbor
City Railway company, of San Francisco.    He was a heavy owner of San
Francisco real estate and Seattle
mortgages and leaves a fortune estimated at $2,000,000.
His death occurred about two
months before it is estimated that his
greatest achievement in railroad
building will have been completed.
The Copper River & Northwestern
which will have a complete line from
Cordova, to the Bonanza mines, was
virtually a personal achievement of
Mr. Heney. While the Guggenheims
were experimenting In trying to build
railroads from Katalia and other
points to the Bonanza mines, Mr.
Heney decided that the most practical route to the Bonanza was from
the site of Cordova. He therefore
started the building of the railroad.
Later in 1907 the Guggenheim syndicate decided that Mr. Heney was
right and contracted with him to
build the road, giving him an Interest
Engineers of national repute studied the route chosen by Mr. Heney
and declared It Impossible to construct a railroad there. They asserted that It. would be impossible to construct a bridge over the Copper river
below Miles glacier thai would withstand the Irebergs breaking off the
glacier. Mr. Ileney, however, went
ahead, built the impossible bridge,
which has been opened since last
June, and proved his judgment to
havo been correct.
Mr. Heney's first contracting work
in this country was done some twenty-live years ago on the Seattle, Lake
Shore & Eastern, later the Seattle
International. lie later had a contract on the Canadian Pacific. Later
he decided that Alaska offered great
prospects for construction work, and
he entered that country, built the
White Pass & Yukon, one of the
greatest feats in railroad construction In the world, which was completed in 1900.
In 1907 he contracted with the
Guggenheim syndicate to build the
Copper River & Northwestern from
Cordova to the Bonanza mines. Tliis
road, when completed, will be aboul
197 miles long.    All    the    difficult
construction has been done. The road
is 'finished to Chitina, and all the
heavy rock construction sixty-five
miles from Chitina to the Bonanza
has been completed.
Mr. Heney is survived by his
mother, Mrs. Thomas Heney, of Ottawa, Canada; four brothers, of
whom oJseph lives at Ottawa, John
at Packenham, Ont, Thomas at
Green Bay, Wis., and P. A. Heney, in
Seattle at 414 Thirteenth avenue
While Mr. Heney's employees always regarded him as a man requiring ceaseless activity and work finished on contract time, they speak
of him also as a man of most kindly
disposition, who faithfully served
those who served him.
It is related that after the wreck
of the Ohio, nothing daunted by the
hardships he then underwent, he
started back to Alaska, and worked
with the strentgh of many men to
complete the railroad to the contract
point by the first of December. From
that labor, which was performed in
the open, with the wind blowing at
times a hurricane, Mr. Heney returned to Seattle, appearing well and
hearty. From there he went to New
York, where the breakdown In his
health occurred.
Whether weakness or the heart,
which finally brought dissolution,
was caused by the privations endured
In the wreck of the Ohio, or whether
Mr. Heney had called upon his reserve strength in furthering his
mighty projects until nature's dynamo became exhausted, is a question
liis friends cannot answer.

to a message of condolence on the
death of King Edward sent to her by
a number of Hindu and Mohametan
women in Bengal:—
"Lady Minto has conveyed to me
a large number of messages of grief
and condolence with me in my overwhelming sorrow. These are so numerous that it is impossible for me
to answer each individually, and I
trust that my kind Indian friends
will accept this acknowledgment of
my grateful thanks.
"1 am deeply moved by the profound and universal sympathy which
the sad death of my beloved husband
has evoked ln all parts of our Empire. Your own tribute to the wisdom
of liis rule and to the effectionate
solicitude with which he watched
over the interests and concerns of
his people touches me deeply. And
j the assurance that you take so great
a share in my deep sorrow and that
i your hearts have gone out to me in
my great loneliness is a precious
comfort to me.
"The king-emperor had an abiding
affeotion for India and an active and
' practical sympathy with all that con-
} rerned the welfare and happiness of
! her princes and peoples, and the mes-
. sages that you have sent to me across
i the seas will be my constant comfort
; and solace."

Mrs. Martin seemed nervous and

while Miss Campbell's nerves were
steady, but she did not seem to be

Of the future of Prince Rupert no
one has a more sanguine opinion
than Mr. Wallace. He says the fishing industry alone will be sufficient
to ensure a great centre of population here.
The past season has been a most
successful one for him at tiie Claxton
cannery and also on the Naas. While
at the latter point there has been an
absence of the cheaper grades' of

ahead of the general run of seasons.

The march of science has made
possible a remarkable development
In the use of wireless telegraphy in
the British navy. Within the last
few weeks the wonderful system of
radlo-graphy has been adopted for
use in submarines, and the experiments with the aparatus have proved
beyond doubt the enormous value of
this form of communication between
one submarine and another or with
the parent ship. Undoubtedly the cooperation of these two modern Inventions will have an Important influence on naval warfare.

The city of Prince Rupert wanted
citizens who would build up a city.
The workmen did not go to Aid.
Pattullo as was easy to understand
in view of tbe opinions expressed by
that aldermen. The same might apply to Aid. Mobley.
Aid. Pattullo said he believed Aid.
Hilditch was attempting to make
capital out of this. He did not believe the situation existed to the extern  Aid. Hildltch suggested.
His worship said no man applied
to him as a labor man that did not
get employment. Only one instance
had he in view and that.was a case

Aid. Hilditch said three men had
come to him in two days. He had sent
them to the foreman. He had never
interfered with the foreman In his
work as he believed he had no right
to do.
None Turned Away
His worship suggested that the
names of those seeking work should
be deposted at the city hall. No
man had ever been turned away.
Aid. Hilditch said that there might
well be a list kept and then these
men would not have to go to any alderman  to secure  work.
Aid. Pattullo resented the insinuation that men had to go to the aldermen.
Aid. Barrow said he had been attracted to the names ending in
"vitch," on the city roll. These men
were good, bad and indifferent. He
said he had consulted Mr. McMordie
who said he did not discriminate ln
the matter of workers. The English
speaking men as far as Mr. McMordie could follow their movements,
had foimd other jobs, such as helping carpenters and left the service
not wanting to work on the streets.

any man seeking work would be
given a job. He would do it without
trying to make political capital out of

Aid. Hilditch said he had tried to
get work for men and failing to do it
had employed the men himself, although he did not really need them.
