TO REDRAFT BYLAWS
Police
Commissioners   Becoming
cerned About Enforcement
of Laws.
Con-
Bartenders  May  be  Licensed  in the
City—ICi vision of City
Regulations
The police commissioners seem
moved now to live closer to their
duties and insist upon the enforcement of the laws against Illicit selling of liquor. The bylaw of the city
dealing with licenses will be generally overhauled and made to conform
to the provincial act more closely.
Aid. Mobley explained at the council
last evening that the bylaw as it
stood was unworkable and would
have to be generally revised to bring
It Into shape.
The question came up on a letter
from the chief of police, who forwarded a bylaw of the 'city of New
Westminster dealing with the licensing of bartenders and suggesting
such a course here. It was pointed
out that by this course the police
would be better able to enforce the
laws. They would have a grip upon
the bars making the sellers of liquor
more careful in the performance of
their work. It also made it easier to
trace up money lost by intoxicated
men.
His worship said he felt that the
bar tenders should be made responsible for preventing minors being in
the bars. He had seen youngsters
in the bars selling papers, etc., that
should not have been  there.
Aid. Pattullo moved that this be
referred to the police commissioners.
Aid: Mobley said he felt that there
were bylaws, including the license
bylaw, which were practically unworkable at present. In order to enforce the bylaws these should be
amended and put In workable condition.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know in
what respect the license bylaw was
defective.
Aid. Mobley said that the provincial act speclflcially specified in most
of its sections that this did not apply
/to Incorporated cities. The bylaws
were so hastily drawn up that they
were defective insofar as being operative. He thought tiie solicitoi
could very well redraft the bylaw
now.

MUSKEG DISPOSAL
Capt. McCoskrie is Agreeable to Make
Arrangements for Taking
to Sea.
ENGINEER'S  ABSENCE
Col. Davis Will Leave For the East
to Give Expert Evidence in Case
He Has Proposition Relative to Getting Rid of Garbage as
Well
Capt. McCoskrie has a proposal for
the city council looking fo the disposal of garbage and even muskeg
taken from building lots. He has
his proposition to the council which
in effect is that he has a tug and
will, if favorable arrangements can
be made, build scows oponing In the
bottom and thus tow the garbage,
muskeg, etc., out to sea. The only arrangement that would have to he
made would be for some wharfage
quarter for dumping Into the scows.
The letter of Capt. McCoskrie was
read last night and a report of the
engineer who seemed to favor owning
scows by the city and against towing
muskeg out ,
Aid. Mobley said that the letter of
Capt. McCoskrie was received by him
after the last meeting. He had referred it to the city engineer direct.
The report of the engineer was referred to the Health committee.
MARINE  NOTES
The D.G.S. Quadra, Capt. Hackett,
called here today for supplies.
The Venture was in last night with
freight. She left for Goose Bay late
In the evening.
The Senator, which called here
yesterday southbound, was two days
later than schedule time owing to
having to call In at so many canneries and small ports for fish and
freight. She was also delayed at
the wharf yesterday for sometime
owing to the non-arrival of a customs officer.
Owing to the necessity of his leaving to appear as an expert witness in
a law suit in Guelph, Ont., Col. Davis,
the city engineer, will find it necessary to leave on a month's vacation
before the end of the month. A letter was received from the engineer
at last evening's council meeting setting forth his wish to be relieved of
duty. He stated be would return
before the end of the year. He will
forfeit his salary while absent.
Aid. Lynch explained that at first
it had been thought that it would
not be possible to dispense with the
engineer's services as desired. The
ease was a very important one and
required his presence. Now the work
was in such shape that he could leave
without interfering with the city's
business to any great extent.
Leave was granted.

DELIGHTFUL DANCE
Kaien Island (Tub Again Proved its
Social Qualities
The Kaien Island club is becoming
more and more recognized as occupying a front place among the social
organiaztions of the city. Last night
a very enjoyable dance was given by
them in the elub quarters, and was
very well attended by the members
and their lady friends. The dance
given last evening was the third that
has been held by the club and was
quite as successful  as  the others.
•The floor was in excellent shape
for dancing, and the music, which
was furnished by Grey's orchestra,
was, hs usual, of the finest quality.
One of the main features of the
dance was the moonlight effect, which
was produced by a very clever arrangement of lights. There were
three moon dances given in which
all the lights were turned off except
the light referred to, which produced
a very pretty effect.
Light refreshments were provided
by some of the ladies who have been
taking a particular interest in tho
club, owing to the ladies' athletic association, which has been organized
there.
The' dance broke up at the hour
of one, with everybody pronouncing
it one of the greatest successes of the
club's undertaking.

DUMPING GROUNDS
Hays Cove is tile Only Place  Available at Present
The city engineer in his report tc
the council last evening recommend
ed that In the matter of the reques
of Mr. Barker for a dumping ground
for lot excavations, that he be permitted to place it at Hays' Cove.
Aid. Hilditch said that the committee regretted its being impossible to
find a (lumping place r>"-rer in than
this. There was nothing nearer at
the present time than this. While it
would be a burden on the builders it
was impossible to do otherwise.
The report was adopted, it being
inserted in the motion that no charge
be made for dumping, at the suggestion  of Aid.  Lynch.

A   FATAL  ACCIDENT
One of Ballasting Gang on Line of G.
Dies    From
Injuries.
T.P.
Tw*(
Others    Are     Hurt    And   Are
Brought  Into City to be
Taken Care of
Last evening, in an accident caused by two hand cars on the line of
the G.T.P. bumping into each other,
Tom Neklch, engaged in one .of the
ballasting gangs, met his death. His
body was brought to the city today.
Two others engaged In the same
work, who were with him on the car,
were Injured and have been brought
to the hospital here where they are
being attended to. One had his leg
broken, while the other suffered Injuries through striking his head.
They will both recover.
In connection with the accident
there seems to have been no blame
attaching to the company In any way.
Three hand cars are used by the men
In this particular ballasting gang
and the instructions are In going to
work or returning from it to the
bunk cars at the siding, to travel in
such manner as to never approach
nearer than fifty feet from one another.
In this case, while returning from
work last evening, the rear car seems
to have attempted to hurry the next
one preceeding It, and bumped Into
it. Three of the men on the car
struck were thrown off. One, Tom
Neklch, striking his head, apparently, and stunning himself. He was
struck by the following car and so
seriously injured that he died a short
time afterwards. The other two men
escaped with Injuries as described.
.awaiting the return of the coroner, J. H. McMullin, from Stewart, it
will not be decided what will be done
in the way of an inquest.
(Special to The Journal)
Victoria, Nov. 25.—The execution
of Gunner Allen, convicted of the
murder of Capt. Elliston, has been
postponed from December until February 2. A stay of execution was
granted by Mr. ustice Clement upon
application of Frank Davie, the Victoria lawyer defending the prisoner.
This has been granted pending the
return of Chief Justice Hunter, the
trial judge, when an application will
be made for permission to apply to
the court of appeal for retrial on the
grounds of the introduction of inad-
missable evidence by the crown
prosecutor.'
INSURANCE RATIOS
Complaint Made Against System Em-

The proposition of ' the finance
committee of the city council made
through the chairman, A!J. Pattullo,
at the Monday evening sitting relative to the placing of insurance, does
not meet with the aprpoval of some
other Insurance representatives. Aid.
Pattullo stated at the previous meeting that the Mack Realty company
had made a very reduced rate, quoting two per cent.

Victoria, Nov. 25.—Voting on
the Scott Act in Prince Ru-

Lome MacLaren has been
named as returning officer at
Prince Rupert. The result of
the poll will be declared at 10
a.m. on December IC.
Moore & Co., wrote, stating that they
considered that it was only fair that
the. other oempanies should have
been given a chance to do business it
the council was to decide upon this
course. Their firm, representing tin,
Maryland Casualty Company, had is-
sured all the contractors on city work
and had written up more than all the
other firms combined.
Other representations have been
made showing that there are other
firms who regularly charge two per
cent so that some mistake must havo
arisen In the matter.
No action has been taken in the
matter.

Question of Lis'.1-  lies Not  Yet Been
Fully    Settled    by    (lie
Authorities
A change has been made in the
date upon which the Scott Act will
be voted upon here. Instead of the
vote being taken on December 22nd
as has been previously announced
it will be brought in eight days sooner, namely on Wednesday, December
14. The returning officer, Mr. MacLaren Is now busy getting arrangements made for the election.
The change of date came somewhat as a surprise to many in the
city interested in the contest. The
former date, December 22, was the
original recommendation of the Liberal association of tlie city, which
body was asked to made a recommendation. Apparently ii was found
advisable, to alter the date, however,
and accordingly the new date has
been fixed.
The question of the lists is still a
somewhat uncertain proposition, and
correspondence is understood to lie
passing between Prince Rupert and
Ottawa on this very point. The Dominion lists, it is understood, are to
be used, but a difficulty has arisen
as to what list tliis will be. It would
not be a representative vote were the
lists used at the last Dominion election made applicable.
The returning officer will probably use the latest provincial list as
a basis upon which to proceed, but
Just exactly how the voting list will
be prepared  is not yet  made public.

WANT MORE LUMBER
City   Council   Will   Ask   foi-  Tenders
for Supplying Two Million Feet
The city will call for tenders for
supplying two million feet of lumber. The engineer reported Inst evening In favor of this course He explained that over 1,377,000 feet of
lumber had been already provided
for the contracts let or to be called
for.
Aid. Lynch said that a million nnd [
a   quarter  of  lumber   would   be   required,    There was also that needed J
lor  repairs.     By  the  time  tliis  was
required  to, be  paid  for  they  would i
have  another  year's  assessment,   to
draw on.    He moved that they call
for tenders  for at least half a  mil- j
lion.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know If
the engineer's estimates for street
work did not include the cost of the
lumber.
Receiving an  affirmative reply,  it
was decided to call for tenders.

MAYORALTY CONTSST
Speculation i;  Rife  'With Respect
ProbtbleCandidates at Forth-
coming Election
to
o-  Stork Again Expected to Run
—William Manson  Will Be
Asked Also
The approach of the time when
the electors will be called upon to
decide upon who shall represent
ihem in ihe city council next year,
is giving rise to considerable speculation in the matter of candidates.
It is generally taken for granted that
Mayor Stork will again offer himself
although he lias made no definite
announcement outside up to the
present. In some cjuarters ii is believed that the mayor may nol be the
candidate, but may make way for
ither Aid. Pattullo or for Aid. Mobley.
Outside oflthose at present in the
council ill" name of William Man-
son is again spoken of. nnd n petition, it is understood, Is being circulated lo ask Mm to run for mayor.
.Mr. Manson is out of the city Ibis
week so that nothing can lie learned
as io whether he will be willing to
accept nomination or not. Il is presumed that on his return he will be
asked to enter the contest, when a
derision will be reached.
Quite a number of other names are
being mentioned on the street as
probable candidates, but apparently
the persons referred to have in most
of cases not been seriously approached on the subject.
IS UNDER CONTROL

VICTORIA'S BYLAWS
Proposition    to   Acquire   Esquimalt
Works Meets With Defeat
(Special to Tin. Journal)
Victoria, Nov. 26.- The waterworks bylaw, by which it was proposed to acquire the holdings of the
Esquimalt Waterworks Company was
defeated here by 100 of a majority,
on a vole of 1,172 for and 1,572
against, The Ore protection bylaw
providing for the expenditure of
$60,000 and local Improvement bylaws were carried.
io. .1. Chamberlin, vie president
.will general manager of the G.T.P.,
with headquarters in Winnipeg, paid
a hurried visit to Prince Rupert this
week, coming in on the Bteamer
Prince Rupert on Wednesday and immediately afterwards leaving with
11. 1!. Kelliher, the chief engineer,
and W. C. C. Mehan, general superintendent,  for "the front."
The object of the nip was in order
to see for himself the actual condition of affairs at the close of the con-
Btruction season. Mr. Chamberlin
lias been visiting all the various
points where work has been in progress and wished to inspect the first
100 miles on the Pacific coast.
Seen last evening on his return
from ills trip to the end of the line,,
(he general manager, who is regarded as one of the most practical railway men in the country, said he was
well pleased witli the way in which
the work has been done and spoke
in an appreciative way of Mr. Me-
han's work; but he added by way of
an aside, "I only wish there had beeD
more done." This, of course, meant
no reflection upon Mr. Mehan, who
lias laid the truck to the end of
the  grade  prepared  for  him.
The road as far as laid he found
in excellent shape and very satisfactory. He w-as assured that the tunnels just beyond the 100 mile point
would be completed so as to allow an
early start, in the spring at track-
laying and if this were done and
other necessary work prepared ahead
of them by the contractors, there
would be ai. early start, at construction when the spring opened.
Asked as to fir'ther contracts beyond Aldermere, Mr. Chamberlin Bald
the company had not yet let any section. It was, in fact, lo be Inferred
from what be said that this might be
delayed some little time,
I'ntil the line was constructed to
Aldermere, supplies could not be got
in in any event so thai there was no
immediate need of haste in Idling
Ihe next section of the work.
Mr., Chamberlin lefl for the south
last evening on bis return trip.
Mr. Mehan, when questioned with
regard to the initiation of a mixed
service on the first one hundred miles
said thai lie could noi well say d finitely just when it would start. The
weather was keeping favorable for
ballasting along the line yet, but
there wns always danger of a heav;
frost that would Inconvenience them.
Capt. Nicholson, manager of the
steamship service, nnd Mrs. Nicholson, came north on the trip.
Mr. Chamberlin on on arrival here
Wednesday before leaving for "hi
Hie line" stilted as follows respecting
the   object  of  his  visit.
"The object of my trip to the const
at this time is final in. ,-crtion for
the year of Ihe various works which
we are carrying on at Prince Rupert,
Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle. My
visit here lias nothing to do with the
assessment question; that matter Ib-
under discussion between the mayor
and council and Presldenl Hays, I
do nol care to say anything on that
point.
"I  am  going  directly  through   »

will inspect tbe tunnel work just beyond the end of track, and discuss
anything of Importance relative to

from Kitselas io Aldermere, will be
carried on vigorously during the present winter, and wc hope to lie able
to lay track as far as the crossing of
the Skeena River jusl south of Hazelton in tiie early spring.

HECATE    STRAITS
Question of Jurisdiction Over the Fishing in These Waters Will Probably be Raised.
Seattle  Paper   Takes   Ground   That
the Canadians Cannot Establish Claim
The increasing importance of the
fisheries of the north which have i
their banks for a great part in Hecate ;
Straits is bringing the question of
jurisdiction over that body of water]
into increasing importance. it is
fell thai the time cannot long be extended before a properly constituted
tribunal. Some years ago Prof.
Price of the Dominion Fshlng Department put forth the claim that
Hecate Straits should be regarded as
Canadian waters instead of waters
open to the world. There are others
who hold similar opinions. There is
the tact that the Queen Charlotte
Islands are regarded as a part of
British Columbia and it is scarcely
right to regard the separating water
as nol Canadian waters.
Some have felt that the recent decision of the Hague tribunal had decided this point in view of the fact
that a bay was very exactly defined.
It is questionable, however, whether
that decision would have sufficient
bearing on the point iu question as to
decide the matter.
The Pacific Fisherman, published
in Seattle, deals with that decision
from the standpoint of the United
States' claim of an open water. Quoting the decision of the Hague Tribunal, it follows it with its interpretation in the matter as affecting Hecate
Straits, u says as follows:—
Tribunal's Finding
Question Five—From where must
be measured the three marine miles
of any of the coasts, bays, creeks or
harbors referred to in said article?
Answer—The Tribunal decides and
awards that in the case of bays, the
three marine miles are to be measured from a straight line drawn across
the body of water at the place where
it ceases to have the configuration
and characteristics of a bay. At all
other places the three marine miles
are to be measured following the sinuosities of the coast.
Now this Tribunal hereby recommends for the consideration and acceptance of the high contracting parties the following rules and methods
of (procedure for determining the
limits of the bay hereinbefore enumerated:—
(1) In every bay not hereinafter
provided for, the limits of exclusion
shall be drawn three miles seaward
from a straight line across the bay
in the part nearest the entrance at
the first point wheret he width does
not, exceed ten miles. (2) In the
following bays, where the configuration of the Coast and the local climatic conditions are such that the
foreign fishermen when within the
geographical headlines might reasonably and bona fide believe themselves on the high seas, the limits
of exclusion shall be drawn in each
case between the headlands hereinafter spcified as being those at and
within which such fishermen might
be reasonably expected to recognize
the bay under average conditions.
American View
While the decision of Point Five
of The Hague Fisheries Tribunal In
favor of Great Britain is looked upon
as being a victory for the Canadians,
and while in many ways it is a disadvantage to the American fishing interests on the Atlantic Coast, it may
not be looked upon as a distinct loss
for the American halibut fishermen
of the Pacific, only inasmuch as that,
had the American contentions been
sustained, the Hecate Straits controversy would have been settled In
their favor for all times, while as
the matter stands It may some day
be brought up for further arbltra-l
tion.
From this derision the interests of
British Columbia had hoped to gain
a precedenl upon which to base their i
oft mooted claim thai Hecate strait
was Canadian water and could and
should be closed to American fishermen. When advices of the decision
were al hand a month ago and it was
staled that Great Britain had won
Point Five, the Canadians papers
wire jubilant, and many of them,
without waiting to see the full extent
of the decision, issued forth ln long
editorials exulting over the victory
which had been won and stating that
it was of significance to both roasts,
for it now gave Canada an opportunity to hold unto herself her valuable
halibul fisheries which had been long
drained by the operations of American fishermen, But these papers failed to reckon with the full text of the
decision.
Is Not Applicable
The    Pacific    Fishermen    believes
that there is nothing in the above
answer to question five upon which
the Canadian fishermen could base a
claim that Hecate Strait is territorial
water. In the first plate, the question does not deal with straits or
sounds or inland seas and therefore
does not affect Hecate Strait in one
way or the other. In the second place
granting that Heca'.e Strait is a bay
and could be thus brought undet
the terms of the d":n )i, attention
is called to the map showing the dl
mensions of this enormous body of
water and establishing in figures the
very ab:i irdity of the claim that this
great expanse can ne considered any-
thlui but .ipi-ii sea. interaction? ond
eoen to the lifleimen of -ill ni'iois.
Hecate Strait at its narrowest
point which is from Rose Point, the
Northernmost circuity of Graham
Island, to Stephens Island,' in the
archipelago bordering the mainland,
is thirty miles of absolutely unbroken water. Measuring from the same
point on Graham Island, Io a point
south of Port Simpson, the strait
is fully fifty miles wide at its narrowest point from the Queen Charlotte
Islands to the mainland.
In its middle reaches, the narrowest point occurs from Kelp Point on
Banks Island on the east shore across
to the point north of Cumshowa Inlet on Moresby Island, a distance of
approximately thirty-two miles.
From Prevost Island, at the southern extremity of the Queen Charlottes across to Aristazable Island
near the mainland, the distance is
seventy-eight miles.
From Cape Scott, on the northern
extremity of Vancouver Island, to
Capt St. James, the southern extremity of the Queen Charlottes, the distance Is 137 miles of practically unbroken water.
Yet it has been this vast body of
water, defined on the North by a
line drawn from Rose Point to Stephens Island, a distance of 30 miles,
and on the soutii by a line from Cape
Scott to Cape St. James, a distance
of 137 miles, that the interests in
British Columbia who have been
playing a game of politics to shut out
American enterprise and reserve
these great fisheries for the benefit
of one or two great corporations,
have been claiming as strictly Canadian water, within the jurisdiction of
that country and not open to the fishermen of outside nations.
The first paragraph of the answer
to Point Five states that the three
marine miles are to be measured
from a straight line drawn across the
body of water at the place where it
ceases to have the configuration and
characteristics of a bay. At all other
places the three miles are to be measured following the sinuosities of the
coast. Save for small indentions on
the coast of Queen Charlotte Islands,
which are only tributary arms, there
is no place in all Hecate Strait where
it. has any of the characteristics of a
bay. This is absolutely determined
by the next paragraph of the decision
which lays out the rules for determining the limits of the bays, which
states tat the limits of exclusion shall
be drawn three miles eastward from
a tslraight line across the bay in the
part nearest the entrance at the flrst
point where the width does no exceed
ten miles.
In all of Hecate strait there is no
point such as this that could be
drawn from headland 'to headland
or from shore to shore that would enable the Canadians to claim that any
portion of the main body of water is
territorial or anything but international. There are a few bays on the
coast of the Queen Charlotte Islands
and perhaps a few on the east shore
of the strait that might come within this ruling, but these are, In the
main, so small that they would become territorial almost by the use of
the three mile limit exclusion alone.
So far as Hecate Strait proper Is
concerned, It Is the opinion of this
paper that there Is nothing In this decision upon which a ruling closing
Hecnte Strait to outside fishermen
could he based. The paper is supported in tills view by Dorr & Hndley
of Seattle and other well-known legal
authorities on fisheries and International law.
PROSPEROUS   LAND
Campbell Sweeney of Bank of Montreal
Talks to the Easterners.
He Tells of the Wealth of British Columbia and  the Questions
Grappled With
iMr. Campbell Sweeny, manager of
the Bank of Montreal in Vancouver
who was at the head office yesterday,
en route for New York, and'thence to
Great Britain, announces that the
financial situation is so bright in
British Columbia that the government has a surplus equal to eight
million dollars, says the Montreal
Gazette.
On the 1st of August, 1887, the
Bank of Montreal opened a branch
in Vancouver, a lot being purchased
from the C.P.R., measuring 7a by
120 feet, the sum paid being about
$3,200.
"And what do you estimate its
value today?" the manager was asked.
After figuring a little, Mr. Sweeny
replied that lite lot as flrst purchased
without any building would be worth
today a quarter of a million, and this
is about the ratio of progress in the
business and financial district of the
chief city of the coast provinces.
The manager remarked that when
he first went to Vancouver Sir William Van Home said to him that the
people claim four thousand of a population, but he did not believe it, yet
today there are* 125,000 people in
the city of Vancouver and sixteen
banks to do the business.
As for the province, Mr. Sweeny
said that he thought the finances
were being conducted on conservative
lines, and although the new finance
minister had recently sailed for England, there was certainly no question
of borrowing money abroad. He
thought, however, that Premier McBride would spend a good deal of
this surplus in building wagon roads
throughout the country, which were
so much needed in opening up the
interior of the province. This the
banker thought would be a wise policy and one that would commend itself to the people of the constituencies.
Mr. Sweeny believes the contract
entered into between the government
of the province and the Canadian
Northern is a pretty good one and the
money to be spent by that company,
both on the main line and on Vancouver Island, would be beneficial to the
province at large.
Speaking of the flourishing stat«
of the provincial finances, Mr. Sweeny said that this has been brought
about by the success attending the
sale of government lots at Prince Rupert and the great development of
the lumber Industry and the consequent forest dues. It has, in fact,
been a great item for the government, and, as before intimated, the
improved wagon road service of the
province will be the result, besides
a liberal grant voted for the extension of railways.

THE CRIPPEN TRIAL
London   Times   Makes   Reference   to
Some Features
The Britisli Admiralty lins ordered
that six battleships of the Royal |
Sovereign class, the llrst batch of
armored ships laid down under the
naval defence act of 1880, are to be
partly dismantled and removed to
the Motherbank, Splthead, otherwise
known as "Rotten Row." They are
all at present In the Fourth Division
of tbe Home Fleet at Devonport,
manned with one-fifth of their full
complements. Their names are:
Royal Sovereign, Royal Oak, Repulse, Ramllies, Empress of India,
Resolution, costing a total of £5,B46,-
r.n2. They have a displacement of
14,1."0 tons, their armament consists
ul' four 13.6 inch and ten r.-incb
nuns, lint from the main turrets the
sides forward and nfl are not armored.
The trial will long be rememhered
for two things, says then Lorido
Times, referring to the Crippen trial.
It has shown, as no other trial before did, that in the struggle w law
against crime justice is now armed
with new and formidable weapons.
We do not refer merely to the dramatic fact that by means of wireless
telegraphy the captain of the Montrose was able in mid-ocean to communicate with the police, so that
when the voyage was over Inspector
Dew was waiting lo apprehend Clip-
pen. Not for the first time have criminals of late found that he world
has been clrtually smaller than It
was. thai there is ho longer any safe
hiding place for fugitives from Justice, toe have chiefly In mind the
surgical and medical evidence given
at the trial, No one can study it
without, being convinced t li nt forensic
medicine and kindred branches of
knowledge have made great, advances
Compare the evidence of the experts
as to hyoseiri, the tests of its presence and its action, with that of the
experts in another famous case of
poisoning, Palmer's case, and it will
be seen that prodigious strides have
been made. The trial will be memorable, too, for another reason. The
man who had committed one of the
foulest of murders, and cruelly mutilated the body of his wife, was popular, and to all who knew him he
seemed genial and kindly. The coolness which ho showed after he had
committed the murder was great;
but more marvelous was the calm
which he maintained throughout the
trial, the demeanor of innocence so
counterfeited as to deceive anyone
who forgot the evidence, and the
imperturbability with which he
stood cross-examination and sought
to support one falsehood by another.
The story disclosed in this trial reveals possibilties in human nature
with absolute callousness, a kindliness of disposition, real perhaps
of superficial geniality combined
within limits, coupled with an Incapacity for pity which the annals
of crime have not often equalled.

IMPRESSIONS OF CANADA
Mr. Vivian Found no Rule or Organization in Civic Development
Henry Vivian, M.P., speaking before a Birlfenhead Liberal association meeting, gave some impressions
of his recent visit to Canada, where
he studied the conditions of the people in the towns and cities. He said
he was surprised at. the entire lack
of rule or organization in developing
Canadian cities and at the backward
state of their municipal life.
He came away impressed with the
character and business ability of the
Grain Growers' association at Winnipeg, and with the fact that they were
convinced free traders.
He expresesd the conviction from
what he saw and heard that protection had nothing whatever to do with
the boom of prosperity there, and
that Canadians refused to recognize
preference in their favor as In any
way strengthening their loyalty to
the motherland.
 —o	
RUIN IN RECIPROCITY
There was thorough unanimity of
opinion. All the speakers agreed that
the present time was a crisis in the
affairs of Cape Breton, and that with
American coal making the inroads
into the Canadian markets that it is
now doing, it would be nothing short
of ruin for Nova Scotia if the protection of the federal tariff was removed.
"Reciprocity in coal would have
been a disaster in 1897, but now it
would be nothing short of a national
calamity," said ex-Mayor Crowe of
Sydney, in speaking to the resolution
and this was the general keynote of
the meeting.
"In those days," said Mayor Kelly
of North Sydney, "Cape Breton supplied most of the New England markets, for the American mines and
systems of transportation were not
developed. Now the American producers cannot only take care of their
own markets, but are selling a million tons of coal in Italy each year,
taking it right past the doors of
Britain and other European coal-producing centres. If the Americans
can  undersell  European  prices     In
■IT .
their own markets, what will they do
to Canadian operators if the tariff
barriers, which alone keep them out
of our markets now, are removed?"

CONSERVE   HEALTH
Report Upon the Discussion at Convention Held at
Ottawa.
Dr. Fagan of Provincial Board Deals
With the Recommendation
Made There
Dr. C. J. Fagan has presented the
following report to the provincial
government on liis recent visit to the
Dominion health conference held at
Ottawa:—
November  17,   1910.
The Hon. Dr. Young, Provincial Secretary, Victoria, B.C.
Dear Sir:—Acting on your order I
left Victoria oh October 4 to attend
the Dominion health conference, held
in Ottawa on October 12 and 13.
The federal government was represented by Mr. .Montizambert, direc-
tor-gneral of public health; Dr.
Bryce of the department of the interior; Mr. A. McGill, chief analyst in
the" department of inland revenue,
and Dr. Drum, from the department
of militia. The provinces, with the
exception of Quebec, were represented by the secretaries of the provincial
boards of health. Dr. R. M. Simpson, president of the Manitoba provincial board of. health, senator from
Alberta, and Dr. George 1. Porter,
secretary of the Dominion Anti-Tuberculosis society, were also present.
Mr. E. B. Osier was chairman of
the conference. The meeting was
called hy the commission of conservation, of which the Hon. Clifford Sifton is ciiairman. Mr. Oster was in
constant attendance at the conference, and the Hon. .Mr. Sifton was
present at the opening and conclusion of our meetings. Tbe Hon. Sidney Fisher was present at two of tho
meetings, anil gave valuable assistance and advice.
At th first meeting, after an address by the Honorable Mr. Sifton,
four coinrnntees were appointed,
with the object of reporting ou the
following questions: —
1. The pollution of waterways; 2.
Tuberculosis; 3. Harmonizing of provincial health laws; 4. Formation of
a central public health council and
the establishment of a national laboratory.
Committee No. 1 reported on the
pollution of waterways. Tbe need
for action in this matter is apparent
to al, and calls for no comment from
me. I merely beg to draw attention
by repeating the recommendation advanced by this committee to the authorities of the different provinces:—
"No bylaw providing for the raising of money for the construction,
operation or extension of any system
of waterworks or common sewer or
system of sewerage or sewerage disposal shall be submitted to the votes
of the electors by the council of any
municipality, until the consnt of the
commissioner of public health, or of
the provincial board of health, as the
case may bo to the proposed con-
structlon, operation or extension has
been obtained, and the preamble to
every such bylaws shall declare that
such consent has been duly obtained;
no debenture shall be valid if issued
under any bylaw passed In contravention of this section."
Committee No. 2 reported by pointing out the dreadful devastation to
human life by reason of the presence
of tuberculosis among our people,
and showing how certain lines of action successfully worked towards the
final eradication of this disease, and
appealed to the federal authorities
to give substantial assistance.
The Hon. Mr. Fisher, minister of
agriculture, was present when this
resolution was brought In. Mr. Fisher
being asked io give liis views regarding the question expressed himself
as being In strong sympathy, but,
stated plainly thai the federal government Would not join with the provincial governments in establishing
hospitals for consumptives, and explained that any money contributed
by the Dominoin government would
be so Invested that the government
would have complete control over the
expenditure.
The chairman, Mr. Osier, while expressing himself as not being in sympathy with Mr. Fisher's views, yet
urged the committee to adopt such
resolutions as would most successfully appeal to the government. The
Hon. Mr. Sifton recommended that
the federal government be asked to
grant or procure large areas of lands
ln each of the provinces, these lands
to be divided up Into sections In accordance with the use to which they
are to be put, and leased to consumptives.
This suggestion of Mr. Sifton's was
received with strong approval. The
Idea is a noble one, and fills the want
apparent to everyone taking an interest in this question. Beyond doubt,
it is the one link missing in tbe chain
of action already adopted in all civilized countries, and if the Dominion
■-'0 ,-ernment act in accordance with
tne Hon. Mr. Sifton's suggestion,
they will put Canada and our Canadian people in a position to which
no other country has been able to attain.
Dr. Hodgetttts presented a report
on the International commission on
bovine tuberculosis. By resolution
this report was endorsed.
Committee No. 3 brought in a r-
port on tbe harmonizing of provincial
health laws. This report could hardly be expected to deal definitely with
a question of this kind at such short
notice as was given them. But on one
question the committee felt that they
were called to report, and made the
following recommendation, which
was unanimously adopted:— -
"That the vital statistics of each
province be placed directly under the
supervision of the provincial health
authorities of each of the provinces."
Committee No. 4, on the establishment of a central public health council and national laboratory, recommended that a meeting of health representatives from every province in
Canada be held in Ottawa at least
once every year. .
On the question of the establishment of a nalional laboratory, it was
pointed out that the various sera,
vira, vaccines, toxins, antitoxins and
other products used in Canada came
largely from England, the United
States and other foreign countries.
As a result the price of these necessary articles is almost prohibitive,
and further there is no surety given
as to purity or potency. The conference were unanimous regarding the
value of this resolution.
Many other points outside the mat-
ler dealt with by the various committees were discussed during the conference.
Attention was called to the quarantine and immigration services. As
at present handled, these services
are under the charge of two separate
and distinct sets of officers. It, has
been pointed out that this was not
only needlessly extravagant, but was
often a hardship and delay to travelers. Medical examination is undergone at the quarantine station, and
must, again be submitted to a few
hours later at the immigration office.
Such action naturally does not appeal
to the public, and it was advanced
at the conference that experience
plainly demonstrated the necessity
of placing these services under one
head and one medical officer.
It was further pointed out that
both of these services neglected to
report to the provincial boards of
health when infectious disease was
found to be present among travelers
entering the country. It was asked
that whenever infectious disease was
found to have been present on any
boat entering Canada, the provincial
boards of health should be so notified
and the names and destination of
persons entering each province be
.submitted.
Another question brought before
the commission was the want of Information regarding the health conditions of countries having direct Intercourse, personal or business, with
Canada. If tliis suggestion is accepted and acted upon, it will be
found very useful and helpful to the
health authorities in the different
provinces. C. ,7. FAGAN, Sec'y.

GREAT INLAND WATERWAY
Saskatchewan  River to lie Improved
From Edmonton to Winnipeg
The annual report of the Dominion
public works department has been
issued, covering the work of the last
fiscal year. The department's total
expenditure for the year was $11,-
312,865, of which $2,207,238 was on
harbors and rivers, $8,669,030 on
dredging, and $11,478,SOS on public
buildings.
The report refers particularly to
the survey now under way looking
to the establishment of a navigable
channel via the North Saskatchewan
river from Edmonton to Winnipeg.
It declares that with the development
of the Saskatchewan Canada would
stand unique among the countries of
the world in the matter of water
transportation. A thirly-foot navigation (soon to be thirty-five) from
tiie sea to Montreal, a distance of
nearly 1,000 miles; a fourteen-foot
channel from Montreal to Fort William, something over 1,200 miles;
nine-foot navigation from Winnipeg
to Cedar Lake, and from there to the
Rocky Mountains four to five foot
navigation, over a distance of 1,500
miles, a total of approximately 3,300
miles of actual Inland waterway
traversing the greater part of the
northern half of this continent, the
only break in the chain being 400
miles from Fort William to Winnipeg.
NEW IRISH SPIRIT
Better Feeling Prevails Among Different Classes in Ireland
Now.
Respect Shown by Opposite Factions
For Feelings of Their
Opponents
One of the most remarkable pieces
of evidence of the disappearance of
sectional and religious bitterness in
Ireland was furnished at the annual
conference of the Protestant Church
of Ireland, which was held in Belfast.
To begin with the president of the
congress, the Right Rev. Dr. Crozier,
Bishop of Downs and Connor, referred lo tiie new spirit which lias
grown up in Ireland.
"Roman Catholics and Protestants" be said, "unite on the platform
of various philanthropic and literary
associations.
"Orange bandsmen on the Twelfth
of July silenced the flute and the
drum while marching past the Catholic hospital on the Crumlin road and
the mother superior writes them a
letter of thanks for their courteous
consideration. Small things you may
say, but life is composed of trifles,
say, but life is composed of trifles,
and all these are but the outward and
visible sign of a spiritual grace which
is spreading a little more than yesterday and a little less tomorrow."
But the most remarkable incident
of the conference was a speech by
Canon Flewett of Cork. Here is what
Canon Flewett said on the subject of
Home Rule:—
"I have noticed a great change in
the attitude of the country towards
Home Rule in the last twenty years.
The Protestants are less opopsed to
it. If we get Home Rule I do not
anticipate any dire disaster to the
church In the south and I am glad
to bear testimony to the kindly consideration and cordial generosity
which have always been extended to
me by my Catholic neighbors in th
County of Cork.
"I cannot believe that this happy
relationship would be altered under
a Home Rule government. What we
do fear Is that some stupid English
government might rise and impose on
us a bogus Home Rule which will not
satisfy the Nationalist aspirations,
and which will only plunge the coun.
try into another period of unrest and
unsettlement."
In all the assembly there were only
half a dozen men who expressed dissent from Canon Flewett's views. The
great majority cheered every word
he said.
Another significant incident arose
when the most Hev. Dr. Peacocks
Archbishop of Dublin, was discussing
the history of the Church if Ireland
and put forward the claim that it was
the direct descendants in unbroken
succession of the historic Irish
church, strongly repudiating any historical connection with the Church
of England. This may seem another
small thing, but tbe way in which
the clergymen and laymen present
cheered this claim showed that the
Episcopalians of Ireland are fully
alive to their nationality and are content no longer to be considered an
English garrison. The greatest enthusiasm of the day was aroused
when a lay delegate finished a speech
hy declaring that hereafter the
watchword in every part of the coun
try would be "Irishmen all."

LAW  ENFORCEMENT
The Police Commissioners, judging from the stand taken by Aid.
Mobley lust evening, are somewhat
anxious to see better enforcement of
the liquor regulations and Hie bringing into effect of the intent of the
provincial license laws by making the
city ordinances comply with these.
Had such a course been taken earlier
in the year there would Undoubtedly
have been less favor shown towards
the Scott Act now about to be voted
upon.
ln this connection it might be well
just now to bring to the attention
of the ratepayers who will vote upon
the Scott Act in a few weeks' time
the serious question which would
force itself upon the city should the
Scott Act carry, in the matter of attempting to put into effect the provisions of that measure. To at all
enforce its enactments a very large
expenditure must be counted upon in
.providing a plain clothes force in
•conjunction with the police of the
city. There can be no denying this.
The guardians of the law will be ob-
'iged to hunt down the law-breakers
with the odds all against them. Under the present license system this
is all simplified. There is little or
nothing doing in the sale of liquor
outside of licensed places unless
probably in the restricted district,
where, under the system which prevails on the coast in this respect, it
has been found difficult, to prevent an
abuse of the liquor laws. The police
have a limited number of bars open
to inspection under the present system. Under the Scott Act the places
of sale have to be traced in all manner of ways all over the townsite.
The police will have to combat a dif.
ferent proposition altogether and a
constant change in imported detectives will have to be resorted to.
'xo do this will cost considerable
money, which will have to be forth-
•toming with no revenue whatever
except the fines to fall back upon as
a means of securing enforcement.
Will the funds be provided for this?
There has apparently been no determined effort made to enforce the
license law. This was borne out by
the statements of Aid. Mobley, one
of the Police Commissioners, speaking before the city council last night.
He announced that the city bylaw
would have to be amended very materially, practically recast, to make
it effective. That bylaw has been in
force for months and if an effort had
been made to have enforcement these
weaknesses should long ago have
been discovered. It looks, in fact,
as though the lylaw lay as a dead
letter, and only now, when for various reasons it is wise to make a
move, has the bylaw been gone into.
The poor old Scott Act left in a
similar condition would be a joke.
Is there good reason to believe that
3ome such course will not follow if
It should pass?

to be present at those services.
Lord Strathcona has given another
striking evidence ol bis sterling
patriotism and his great.generosity
;n tiie otter referred to in a briel
despatch published in the Journal i
, v days ago. lie has written !■■
the MlnUter of Militia and Defeni i,
sir Frederick Boiden, announclns
a further glfl of $200,000 to the
Strathcona trust for tbe encouragement of physical and militar ytrain-
Ing in tiie publls chools of Canada.
Willi the $300,000 which he gave
for this purpose last year, this further generous gift brings the total of
the fund up to the splendid sum of
$500,000, and assures the committee
in charge of the administration of
the fund an annual amount of $2u.-
000 to assist in the joint work of
the Federal and Provincial Governments towards the establishment of
a uniform system of physical and elementary military training for the
youth of the Dominion.
In March of last year Lord Strathcona donated a first sum of $250,000
for this purpose. This was supplemented a little later by an additional $50,000. Now the Minister of
Militia has completed arrangements
with nearly all the provinces for the
adoption of a scheme of co-operative
action in the matter of making physical training and elementary military
drill a part of the education of tiie
boys and girls of Canada, Lord
Strathcona has nearly doubled the
central fund available for establishing the movement on a permanent
and assured basis of success.
The federal government has taken
over the whole amount from the
trustees of the fund, and has guaranteed interest at four per cent per annum, thus giving an annual amount
of $20,000 to be administered by the
Strathcona Trust Fund Board under
the conditions of the original donation.
The  object  of  the  fund  may  be
briefly set forth by a quotation from
Lord Strathcona's letter of March 13,
1909, announcing his    first    gift of j
$250,000.    His Lordship then wrote:
"My object is not only to help to j
improve the physical and intellectual
capabilities of the children by inculcating habits of alertness, orderliness
and prompt obedience, but also to
bring up the boys in patriotism and
to a realization that the first duty of
a free citizens is to be prepared to
defend his country. The Dominion
at the present time, and for many
years to come, can hardly hope to be
able to give so long a period of
training to her military forces as by
itself would suffice to make them efficient soldiers, but if all the boys
had acquired a fair acquaintance
while at school with simple military
drill and rifle-shooting, the degree
of efficiency which could be reached
In the otherwise short period which
can be devoted to the military training of the Dominion forces would,
in my opinion, be enormously enhanced. I will only add that I should
prefer that for the present at least
the whole of the money grant should
be devoted to those educational establishments which are maintained
entirely out of public funds. I think
further that the administration of
the fund should be such as to enable
both sexes, whether teachers or
pupils, to share in the rewards, and
that the allotment of the money
should be so made as to afford an Inducement both to the teachers to
instruct and to the pupils to perfaet
themselves In the training desired."
The province of Nova Scotia has
for some years had an arrangemeni
whli Hie military department lor the
teaching of drill and physical traln-
Ingtn the public schools of the prov-
inve. Ontario, \ew Brunswick,
Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan
and British Columbia lime already
agreed to enter into a similar arrangement. Alberta will do so soon.
The Protestant Board of Education
lor Quebec are ready to introduce
the system In the Protestant public
schools of tho province. The question is still under consideration by
the authorities in charge of the Roman Catholic schools of the province.
Manitoba is the only provnce which
lias not as yet taken active steps to
incorporate the proposed uniform
system of physical training and elementary military drill into its educational system.
Mr. Louie Simon, one of the members of Simon's Fair, has returned
to the city after an extended visit to
the south  for  his  health.
Anything appearing in this
column under the above head
is published by the Press
Committee of the opponents
of the Scott Act and is not intended as representing the
views of this paper.
118. The sale of wine for exclusively sacramental purposes may, on
the certificate of a clergyman affirming that the wine is required for
sacramental purposes, be made by
druggists.and   vendors  thereto  spe-
ially licenced by 1 lie lieutenant-
governor in each province, but the
number of such licensed druggists
and vendors shall not exceed one in
each township or parish, or two In
each town, or one for every four
thousand inhabitants in each city.
119. The sale of intoxicating liquor for exclusively medicinal purposes, or for bona fide in some art
trade or manufacture, may be madr
by any person duly authorized to sell
the same; but such intoxioating liquor when sold for medicinal purposes shall be removed from the
premises, and such sale shall be made
only on the certificate of a legally
qualified physician, having no interest in the sale, affirming that such
liquor has been prescribed for the
person named therein.
126. Any legally qualified physician who gives a certificate under
tliis part for any other than strictly
medical purposes, affirming that any
intoxicating liquor, therein specified,
has been prescribed for the person
named therein, shall, on summary
conviction, for the first offence, be
liable to a penalty of twenty dollars,
and for any second or subsequent offence to a penalty of forty dollars.
(How do the doctors like the look
of this clause? Note that there Is
no provision made for a false certificate by a clergyman, and they are
only human, like the doctors.)
Regarding Wholesalers
123. Any merchant or trader, exclusively in wholesale trade and duly
licensed to sell liquor by wholesale,
having his store or place for the sale
of goods within such county or city,
may thereat keep for sale and sell
intoxicating liquors, but only in
quantities not less than ten gallons
at any one time, and only to druggists and vendors licenced as aforesaid, or to such persons as he has
good reason to believe will forthwith
carry the same beyond the limits of
the county or city, and of any adjoining county or city, in which this
Part is then In force, to be wholly
removed and taken away in quantities not less than ten gallons at a
time.
(This is another brilliant effort.
The wholesaler living in the city
rannot sell in the city even for family use and the champions of this Act
try to tell the people that there is
no effort made to interfere with a
man buying liquor for his home. Does
not the whole thing show the work
of the amateur lawmaker? We will
continue lo publish these c'auses and
we wish the people to weigh them
carefully without prejudice. We
only hope to reach the people who
can be swayed by reason and we
think there are enough of them to
outweigh the fanatics.)

ACTIVITY ON ATLANTIC
The Canadian Shipping Companies
are all making preparations for prospective increases to their business by
building or purchasing steamers.
The Canadian Northern Company,
which operates the Royal Line from
Bristol, has decided to run a weekly
service. This concern has acquired
control of the steamer Volturno, a
vessel which lias accommodation for
1,800 passengers, and which at present maintains a service between New
York and Rotterdam, in addition to
I lie Royal Edward and the Royal
George, a fourth boat will he available when navigation reopens.
The Canadian Pacific Company has
practically completed arrangements
for placing larger and faster steamers on the Atlantic and the Pacific.
The construction programme includes two liners for the Atlantic and
two for the Pacific. It is expected
that they will be faster than any
other vessels at present on service.
The Allan Line has just issued
specifications for three new boats. It
is stated that they will have a length
of 686 feet, which Is over 160 feet
longer than the Victorian and Virginian, which were built In 1905. The
intention of the company Is to enable
travellers from Liverpool to Quebec
to reach their destination as quickly

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
THE NAVAL POLICY
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Henri Bourassa
on the Naval
Question.
Difference  of  Opinion  Between  the
Two French-Canadian
Leaders
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has written a
long letter to the Hon. T. Berthiame
on the naval policy of his government, the opportunity being provided by an article of the latter published Saturday reviving the figure
of Commandant. Fortln "that man of
head and heart who ln reality," says
Laurier, "was the father of the Canadian navy."
The Premier draws a parallel between the necessities of that day and
those of the present, saying it is now
much more important to defend our
shores, especially as Britain has
withdrawn her fleets from Halifax
and the Pacific coast, thus confirming
our autonomy. Canada makes her
own laws and commercial treaties
% and it is her duty to provide for her
naval protection. What would happen to Canadian commerce If at the
moment she was preparing to offer
the shortest route between Europe
and Asia by false economy we should
lose hundreds of millions of business? Moreover Canadians should
have the opportunity to be trained
for sea life.
"I am not at the head of Canadian
affairs for my own personal satisfaction," he says. "My duty is to work
iu order to make the country respected. I do not think my compatriots of Quebec should be In this
matter of different faith to my own.
Moreover they have reason to take
me to task if I have failed in the
duty assigned to me in making Canada worthy of taking first place in
the British Empire in the face of the
world."
Sir Wilfrid's Policy
He goes on to say that demagogues
have sought to frelghten the people
with prospects of conscription. Conscription is no more to he feared today than when Commandant Fortln
called for volunteers to recruit the
"Canadlenne." He concludes as follows: ^"Antonomy will similarly be
preserved by the clause which refers
to parliament's absolute control of
the naval service, which Is Its own
creation and which cannot be used
otherwise than by the will of the representative of the people. When the
law Is better understood the people
of Canada, especially people of Quebec, will find in it nothing hue full
recognition and exact application of
their rights as well as their duties.
Rourassa's Reply
Mr. Henri Bourassa publishes ln
Le Devoir a reply to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier's letter in La Presse heading the article, "Laurier, Berthiaume,
Dansereau & Co.," and beginning
with the statement that the fraternal embrace of these gentlemen
marks the dreadful fall of the man
who for so long has dominated the
public life of his country.
"I asked Laurier one day," proceeds Mr. Bourassa, "why he saw fit
to fraternize with such people and
he replied, my dear sir, political leaders are like generals In the army,
they are obliged at all times to make
use of spies purchased from the
enemy."
"This conversation took place In
1905 before the famous meeting at
Caledonia Springs and the Holy alliance of Blair, Russell and Green-
shields. In fact the situation must
have become desperate when Laurier
has to throw himself Into the arms
of everyone who comes along. Of all
the pleasantries indulged In by Sir
Wilfrid up to the present time, this
heats all. It is necessary for one to
call attention to the fact that Hon.
A. N. Morln and Hon. Mr. Hincks
never had more bitter adversaries
than the men who were the first
guides and leaders of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, such as the Dorlons, the
Pepins, tiie Provosts and the Dutres,
and need I remind Sir Wilfrid that
he combatted to Ihe bitter end the
man who Is designated as the proud
and noble figure of Commandant
Forlin and whom he claims as a godfather?"
Draws Difference
"This, however, might be excusable," the article goes on, "if his
mode of argument could for a single
Instant hold water. Commandant
Fortln may be the father of the Canadian navy, that is possible, but Sir
Wilfrid's navy is only. Canadian in
times of peace; it is Imperial in time
of war. Mr. Fielding proclaimed It;
Laurier admitted it; Mr. McKenna,
first lord of the admiralty, confirmed
it, and so did Mr. Brodeur and Sir
Frederick  Borden."
Mr. Bourassa accuses Sir Wilfrid
of taking liberties with clauses and
facts, saying in part: "He forgets
that the famous clause which he invokes, falsifying it, will only call parliament together after the fleet has
already been a fortnight at sea, and
perhaps sunk, leaving such Slavs as
the Rivets, the Gervais and the Be-
lands the right to approve or blame
the action of the government."
Proceeding to speak of the future
Mr. Bourassa says: "There can be no
mistaking the character of the contest in the future. Let neither Conservative nor Liebral be deceived.
The fight of tomorrow which has
been preparing for the past ten years
will not be fought between two
armies, morally decimated and whose
battle flags cover an idea or a principle. The battle will be fought out
between imperialists and automom-
ists. The problem will be posted
squarely and fairly and the Canadian
people will choose between two principles and whatever may be the Issue
there will be no ,civil war, or timid
people fear. There will be of course
people like Brodeur In 189G and
Hughes of our own day, but with
such damagogues the bark is worse
than the bite. The minority will accept loyally the decision of the ma-
pority, preserving of course, the
right, which Is essentially British,
to use every effort to bring the majority to think as they do."

DISMISSED CAPTAIN
A court-martial held at Portsmouth, Eng., found Captain Fitzher-
bert of the British armored cruiser
Bedford, guilty of negligently
stranding his ship and sentenced him
to dismissal from the vessel and to
be severely reprimanded. The Bedford ran ashore off Quelpart Island,
in the Yellow sea, on August 21.
Eighteen of her crew were lost.
Captain Fitzherbert's sentence does
does not debar him from obtaining
another command in the royal navy
after a suitable period has elapsed.
COLD STORAGE PLANT
Workmen   are   Installing   a  cold
storage  plant with   a    capacity    of
2,000 cubic feet on the Grand Trunk
Pacific  steamer Prince  George now
docked In Victoria.    It is understood
thai  tiie Prince Rupert will he slml-
] larly  fitted  when  she comes off  the
i northern run next month to he over-
i hauled   for  the   excursion     to     the
Hawaiian islands next February. Tho
plant will give the steamers facilities
I for the carrying of fresh meats and
perishables at present unequalled, on
, tiie  British   Columbia  coast.
The installation will be a boon to
residents here, insuring the arrival of
meats and other articles of diet of a
perishable nature in first class shape.
It is another indication that the G.
T. P. is prepared to do its best to
serve the public.
The G.T.P. has announced that the
wireless apparatus on the Prince Rupert will be enlarged for her trip
across the Pacific, the radius being
increased in order to allow of constant communication with this coast
and Honolulu. Arrangements will be
made to publish a daily newspaper on
the steamer, giving condensed news
dispatches. This will be the first time
a newspaper has been published on
board ship on the Pacific.
Count Lyof Nikolaevitch Tolstoi,
usually called Count Leo Tolstoi,
novelist and social reformer, whose
death occurred a few days ago under
such sad circumstances, was born
August 28, 1828, at Yasnaya Poliana,
in the province of Tula, Russia.
When 23 years old he -entered the
army and served in the Caucasus and
the defense of Sebastopol against the
British and French allied forces. He
first made a reputation in literature
by a series of vivid sketches written
from Sebastopol, and when he left
the army after the Crimean war, he
devoted himself entirely to literature.
His "War and Peace," a tale of
the invasion of Russia by Napoleon
In 1812 is regarded in Russia as being his masterpiece, though his
"Anna Karenina" which appeared in
1867? and "The Cossacks" found1
greater favor abroad, . where his
"Kreutzer Sonata," translated in
1890, also attracted wide attention.
Tolstoi wrote much on education
and published several short stories
and reminiscences of childhood and
youth, but of recent years he had devoted himself to religious teachings.
He made "Return not evil" the keystone of the Christian faith and insisted that the literal interpretation
of the Sermon on the Mount was the
only rule of the Christian life. The
religious views of Tolstoi were set
forth in his "Christ's Christianity"
and "My Religion."
In 1893 Tolstoi wrote "The Kingdom of God Within Us," an important work on the social question, and
in 1895 he wrote "The Four Gospels
Harmonized and Translated." His
other writings included "My Confession," "Criticisms of Dogmatical
Christianity," "What I Believe,"
"What is to be Done," "The Death of
Ivan Ilyitch," "The Power of Darkness" (a drama), "On Life" "The
Fruits of Enlightment" (a comedy),
"The Kingdom of God is Within
You," "What is Art?" "The Christian Teachings," "The Resurrection,"
"The Slavery ot Our Times," "What
is Religion?" and many other works
on the most varied subjects.
In 1901 Tolstoi was ex-communicated by the holy synod and in October, 1902, he deposited his memoirs
and diaries with the curator of Rum-
yanzoff museum on the condition that
they should not be published until
ten years after his death, and in November of the same year he legally
made over his whole fortune, includ
ing his real and personal estate, to
his wife and children.
In 1895 Tolstoi wrote a powerful
vindiaation of the Doukhobor sect,
which iu that year had suffered great
persecution. On the Russian censor
refusing to permit its publication,
Tolstoi sent it to the London Times,
which printed the lengthy article in
full. He continued from that time
on to address his literary efforts to
the British press. On March 17,
1896, the London Daily Chronicle
published a long letter from Tolstoi
to a correspondent in England on the
Venezuelan dispute, which had recently arisen between the United
States and Great Britain. It was a
strong indictment of war.
Tolstoi was several times threatened with expulsion from Russia and
was sevral times, according to report,
upon the point of being exiled; but
he seemed on the whole to have been
treated with unusual leniency in view
of his pronounced views, especially
as set forth In a manifesto entitled
"The People's Rights," his criticisms
of imperial acts and his open letters
to the emperor. He was, howeve/ expelled from Moscow In July, 1901,
md has since resided at Yasnay
Poliana. Mis health at that time was
poor, and for a time his life was In
danger, but he regained his strength
and resumed work. Later he suffered a relapse and in February
1902, was reported dying. Again he
rallied, and in June his recovery was
complete.
In July, 1904, Tolstoi wrote an ar-
MASQCERADE CARNIVAL
Enjoyable Evening Spent at the Roller Rinl  hy Many Patrons
tide denouncing the Russia-Japanese
war, which caused the seizure of the
"Novosti" of St. Petersburg, which
published it, and a revival of the reports of the government's intention
to take severe action against the author.
In January, 1905, Tolstoi published an open letter to the emperor regarding the internal conditions in
Russia, which was printed throughout the world, and some time later
he ocmpletedshis drama "Behind the
Scenes in War," the production of
which was prohibited in St. Petersburg.
The London Times, September 1,
1905, published a seven-column article by Tolstoi, entitled "A Great
Iniquity," dealing with the land question and declaring that Russia is
living through an important time
that is destined to have enormous results. The article was largely devoted to the theories of the late
Henry George, and declared that
the land question had reached a state
of ripeness such as fifty years ago
was reached by the question of serfdom.
In 19-07 he wrote a letter to Paul
Sabatier, of Paris, as a reply to the
latter's book on the disestablishment
of the church in France. In this communication the Russian writer predicted the possible reduction of all
the Christian countries of the west to
a state of vassalage to the Japanese
and other Oriental people, basing his
predictions on the ground that It is
only in the Orient that religion and
patriotism are synonymous.
On the occasion of Tolstoi's eightieth birthday, extensive celebrations
were held, although they were
strongly disapproved by the Russian
government and were made the subject of an appeal by the holy synod
to all believers to abstain from participating.
Several publishers of Tolstoi's
works have been sent to prison. Of
these, M. Selden was sentenced to six
months In 1909 for publishing and
distributing the pamphlets, "Thou
shalt not kill,'-' a letter to the "Liberal" on "Christianity and Patriotism." The venerable writer addressed
a note to the court challenging the
prosecution of himself, instead of
the publisher. But the magistrate
did not venture to institute proceedings against Tolstoi and the government took no notice of the challenge.
Although Tolstoi came of an aristocratic family, being a descendant of
Count Peter Tolstoi, the friend and
comrade of Peter the Great, he received his education at Kazan university (entering the army as a lieutenant of artillery and commanding a
battery at Sebastopol), he was-at
heart a peasant in the best sense of
the word, devoted to the improvement of the condition of the Russian
masses and eager to lead them In the
right path.
With these objects in view as early
as 1885 he organized peasant schools
on a new and original basis, co-operated in the interest of cheap, popular
publications, organized relief for the
starving population of middle Russia
(in 1891-92), renounced his properly
in copyright, land and money and, in
the recent agrarian disturbances actually but vainly, allowed the peasants to plunder his estate at Yasnaya Poliana.
There he lived the life of a peasant
in a peasant's hut, partaking only of
simple peasant's food and wearing
the peasant's costume—rough blouse,
broad leather belt, fur cap, with wide
trousers tucked into high cowhide
boots.
But although Tolstoi chose the existence of a peasant, his family occupied the substantial family mansion
on the Yasnaya Poliana estate, in
Hie mansion was the author's library,
and there lie went whenever lie desired to dictate to liis secretary, Tolstoi
was a great reader, and among his
recreations were chess, cycling, lawn
tennis and swimming.

The roller rink on Wednesday
evening, to which crowds of people
flocked, was the scene of a gay and
happy throng, owing to the masked
skating carnival, which was being
held.
The skaters were dressed in every
kind of garb imaginable; clowns,
cooks and waiters being in abundance. During the evening a contest
of skating was held to choose the
most graceful lady and gentleman
skaters on the floor. Mrs. L. A. Miller, who was garbed as a Spanish
dancer, was successful in carrying off
the lady's prize, while Mr. E. J.
Waterman, who was dressed as a
Highlander, captured the gentleman's prize for gracefulness.
A race for boys under twelve years i
was also very interesting, and gave
the boys a chance to show their speed
The race consisted of ten laps around
Ihe rink and was easily won by Einer
Olson, the smallest boy on the floor.
H. M. Lever, the floormaster, gave
a very clever exhibition of fancy and
trick skating and greatly pleased tha
large and attentive audience who ap.
plauded most heartily.
The signal to unmask was given
at nine o'clock, but skating continued until eleven.

FALSE MARRIAGE PERFORMED
New Westminster.-—Taking advantage of the keen distress of a
young girl . who had been deceived
and deserted by a man and cast off by
her people, two blackguards inveigled her into a false marriage in this
city last December. The story in all
its details is a very destressing one
and it is not often that such a case
occurs in this country.
Charged with performing a false
marriage ceremony in this city on
December 12, 1909, a young Englishman named L. Campbell faced
Justices Corbould and Walker at the
police court. The case was remanded for one week in order to secure
material witnesses and the accused
will be allowed liis freedom providing lie can raise the necessary $1,000
bail.
while not unique this crime is fortunately rare In British Columbia
and carries with it a maximum penalty of seven years imprisonment. The
groom who participated in the fake
marriage, a burly logger, left the city
just before the police were notified
of the affair and has not been located
since that time.
COLLECTS DAMAGES
New Westminster.—The widow of
Wm. Johnstone, a B.C.E.R. conductor who was killed in the Lakeview
disaster between Vancouver and
New Westminster last fall, was
awarded $7,500 damages, $4,000 for
herself and $500 for the oldest boy
and $3,000 for a small child. The
case was heard before a special jury !
of eight. Johnstone was an employee j
of the company who was travelling j
to New Westminster in plain clothes
at the time of the accident. The de-
fenc was that the plaint.ff, having
been an employee of the company,
was killed by the negligence of other
employees, and therefore, the company was not liable. Plaintiff's counsel replied that at the time of the accident, he was not in uniform and
not on duty, and so was In the same
position as other passengers.

THE SPORTING WORLD
ROBHY KERR TRAINING
Bobby Kerr, who has been out of
training for some time, has decided
to get into shape again, and will
compete at some of the big indoor
meets to be held across the border
this winter, says the Hamilton Herald. Kerr feels that the rest he has
had will do him the world of good,
and there is no reason why he should
not show his best form this season.
The knee which he injured while
playing football a week ago is still
bothering him, but the injury is not
serious and will in no way interfere
with his training. Last year Kerr did
not let up In his training at any
stage, but as soon as the outdoor
season closed he began to prepare
for the indoor season, with the result
that he was over-trained before the
winter was over.. He has done very
little running since he showed 'em
how to lower records at Winnipeg.
Speaking of Kerr, an intimate
friend of the auburn-haired sprinter
claims that Bobby will spring something in the way of a surprise within
the next year or two. As soon as
Bob decides to retire from the sprinting game he is going to try his hand
at distance running with a view to
winning the Herald race.
ENGLISH  LACROSSE
The London Times has an Interesting letter on the relative merits of
English and Canadian lacrosse. It
points out the enormous strides that
the game has taken in popular favor
in England, and prophesies that ln
ten years it will be a national pastime. It devotes some space to a
criticism of the two styles of play,
and while it grants that in most respects the Canadian game is superior,
some few points are noticed in which
our game might be improved.
For instance the corerspondent believes that it would be worth while to
imitate the swift straightforward onslaughts which are a feature of the
English style, but at the same time
he notes that it Is owing to just this
style of play that the teams of Western Canada have shown such a marked superiority over those of the East.
In regard to the English game he
points out that although It is full of
individual brilliancy It has yet to be
purged of actual selfishness, that it
is inferior to the Canadian game in
midfleld play and in the art of shooting, and that the Canadian players
are always on the alert for any unexpected developments, whereas the
English players are apt to relax when
the ball Is not in their teritrory.
The writer, after a tribute to the
clean and sportsmanlike methods of
English players, goes on to deplore
the damaging effect that professionalism has had on the game in this
country. He says:. "In Canada the
brutality and foul tactics of many—
but by no means all—of the hired
players have driven away the better-
class spectators from the chief
matches; very few ledies now attend
these spectacles, and the popularity
there of the 'smart Larries' has been
lately deplored by pulpit moralists,
who go as far as to say that the influence of professional lacrosse Is as
debasing    as   that of the  American
prize-ring. As the rules now stand,
the player who strikes an opponent
with his crosse or trips him from behind deliberately is merely 'sent to
the fence for five or ten minutes.'
The corerspondent sugegsts that if
the player "could be dismissed for
the rest of the game, and if his offence deserved an additional iepnalty
fence deserved an additional penalty,
suspnsion for a part or the whole of
the season, the worst abuses would
be eliminated." He adds that "sooner or later some such change ln the
Canadian code must come if lacrosse
in Its native land Is not to sink to
the level of American baseball—and
more than one Canadian authority
on the game would be glad to see
body-checking made illegal—an alteration which would practically
abolish the tactical differences between Canadian and English lacrosse." There is, however, no reason, to despair of lacrosse in Canada.
Such evils as have developed may
easily be eliminated. It still has
a generous suport and it is going far
to say that it Is seriously neglected
by what. The Times' writer calls "the
better-class  spectators."
DEATH  OF   FAMOUS   CRICKETER
The death of Dr. H. J. H. Scott, the
famous Australian cricketer, is announced. Dr. Scott's first class career was not a long one. It lasted
less than ten years, but during that
time he did some notable things. It
was in 1883-4 that he first came
prominently to the front with a fine
score of 114 not out against New
South Wales at Melbourne, when he
and Tom Horan added 161 for the
fifth wicket, and largely helped to
bring about the victory of their side
by three wickets. This performance
was the main cause of his being chosen'for the fourth team to England.
Very early in the tour his value to
the side was shown by his fine innings of 71 against Surrey, more
than twice as big as any other individual score of the match. Against
England at the Oval he made 102,
he and W. L. Murdock adding 207
for the third wicket. He took third
place to Murdoch and McDonnell In
the batting averages with 973 runs
and an average of between 22 and
23. His play in England in 1886 was
somewhat handicapped by the task of
captaining a disappointing team.
Again he came out third in averages,
with a total of 1,289 and an average
slightly under 22. He never played
any more flrst class cricket after the
close of this tour, remaining in England for the time to pursue his medical studies, and shortly after his
return to Australia taking up a practice at Scone. Born at Toorak, near
Melbourne, on December 6, 1858, he
was only 51 at the time of his death.
BILLIARD CHALLENGE
Assailed by challenges from every
side, George Gray, the boy Australian
billiard wonder, has thrown out a
challenge to the world. It is issued
on behalf of a North of England
sportsman, who is prepared to back
George Gray on level terms against
any player in the world for a stake
of $2,500 a side.    The challenge is
particularly directed at Inman.
Gray's manager says: "Inman has
stated that he is prepared to back
himself to the extent of $110 that he
maks a larger break off the red ball
than Gray. In this he can be accommodated just as often as he pleases,
irrespective of the stake of $2,500;
and, further, Gray's supporter will
take Inman's $250 to $125 that the
the Australian will make more than
twice as large a break off the red
ball In any and every match they
may play. Or, providing Gray and
Inman do not meet, the youth's supporter will book the same wager that
Gray compiles twice as large a red
ball break as Inman during the remainder of the present season on a
table passed by the Billiard Control
Club."
WOULD MEET JEFFRIES
"If Jeffries was doped when he
fought Jack Johnson last July, he
must be a better man than the public
thinks he Is, and he must have confidence in his ability as a fighter. Now
to show Mr. Jeffries what I think of
him, I will bet him $20,000 that I
can stop him Inside of fifteen
rounds."
This was the statement made by
Tommy Burns to the News-Advertiser in Vancouver, while speaking of
the story in which Jeffries is repotted
as saying that he is positive he was
doped the last three days at Moana
Springs. "That talk about being
doped sounds like a schoolboy's remarks," Tommy added. "When Mcintosh approached Jeffries in New
York in regard to a match with Johnson, Jeffries said, 'Who did Johnson
ever beat?' and Mcintosh replied, 'He
beat Tommy Burns, the former
world's champion.' Jeffries replied,
'Why, he can't fight. He is only a
third-class middleweight.' Now, according to Jeffries' ownf statement,
he Is either a has-been or he is a
much better man than his showing
at Reno would indicate, and that is
the situation which has prompted me
to make the above offer."
Burns resents with some feeling
the imputation that he has fought no
body but lemons. "I fought the
champions in all the countries I went
to," he said, "and if some of then
were lemons it was not my fault. 1
met them all as they came along. But
I never met such a lemon as Johnson met on July 4th at Reno."
The conversation turning to Johnson, Tommy said that he would rath,
er fight him than anyone in the
world. "After the fight at Reno, 1
shook hands with Johnson, and he
said that he would positively give me
the next chance. Mcintosh tried to
arrange a match for London or Australia, but he said he would not. fight
again for a year. During the race
with Barney Oldfield, it looked for a
while as though I might be champion any minute, but Johnson went
through with it al safe. However,"
he added, "I have always believed
and I still believe that somehow some
time I will regain the world's title.
The ease with which Johnson won
the fight in Australia has been greatly exaggerated, and I always had a
good chance."
TRADE WITH  SOUTH
Commerce   Awaiting   Development  Between Canada and Australasia.
Some Interesting Figures Relative to
the Commodities That Could
15c Exchanged
It is plain that a considerable
trade may be established between
Canada on one side and Australia
and New Zealand on the other, says
the News-Adverliser. Among the
conditions of this increase are these:
A better knowledge in each country of the requirements and resources of the others.
Better and more frequent steamship communication.
Reciprocity in preferential  tariffs.
In respect to the first it appears
that while some trade has grown up
between Canada and Australia, very
little study has yet been made of the
exact demands of the market. Canada has done more In this direction
than Australia. We have trade commissioners in Australia and New Zealand. Neither the Commonwealth
nor the Dominoin maintains public
agents In Canada, though Australia
proposes to do so. The goods shipped to this country from Australia
are prepared as they are for other
export, trade without much regard to
the special tastes and demands of Ca
nadians. In short, the trade, which
has great promise for the future, is
yet only in the preliminary stage.
There Is no direct ^steamship communication between Canada and New
Zealand and as a consequence there
is practically no trade. Our total
trade with New Zealand last year
comprised $887,000 worth of exports and $775,000 of imports. This
is not a large proportion of the
$140,000,000 of New Zealand commerce or of Canada's $700,000,000.
Of the goods purchased from New
Zealand $650,000 was aides and
575,000 wool. Hemp was worth $30,-
000. Butter was valued at $5,000.
-Mutton and other flesh-meats do not
appear In the tables. Our sales to
New Zealand are mostly manufactured goods, including over $200,000
worth of farm machinery, and nearly the same value of printing paper.
All these goods much be sent and j
received by indirect routes, so that
the trade such as It is has been obtained In face of great difficulty.. Our
trade with Australia has been largely
in exports. According to the blue
book we purchased last year from
the Commonwealth only $400,000
worth of goods, and sent to Australia
goods to the value of $3,600,000. The
fact is that our import trade with
Australia, except in wool and hides,
is just beginning. We suspect that
the quantity of Australian wool used
in Canada is vastly larger than the
figures show, and that, it comes to
Eastern Canada by way of England.
As merino wool it is free of duty, it
is not distinguished from the British
produce. The books make it appear
that we imported 4,600,000 pounds
of wool from Britain and only u60,-
000 pounds from Australia. Australia is returned as sending us only
$77,000 worth of mutton, but there
will be a considerable Increase this
year. There is no mention of bacon,
though the Australian product Is now
seen in our shops. It is represented
that larger quantities of fresh meat
would be shipped if more cold storage space In the boats were available.
Our sales to Australia have about
doubled In the last four or five years.
Farm machinery accounts for more
titan one-third of those exports. Lumber, salmon and printing paper, with
manufactures of steel, are also Included.
II is rather singular that no preferential tariff arrangements has yet.
been made between Australia and
Canada. Both giev a preference to
Great Britain, but neither gives It to
the other. New Zealand had a low
tariff when Canada adopted the preferential system, and goods from that
island have long been on the Canadian preferred list. Yet it happens
that only $6,190 worth of Imports
get the benefit of the preferential
rate, as nearly al! our imports from
the other dominion were on the free
list. Tiie total duties paid on goods
from New Zealand was only $2,221,
and Australian goods were taxed
$59,540, As there is rather close
competition between some Australian
products—notably sub-tropical fruits
- -and those of the United stales, ihe
establishment  of a preference might

NEW NORTHERN LINE
Mackenzie     &     Mann   Rushing
Through Alberta Legislature.
Bill
Proposal to Build   From   Edmonton
Throngh Northern British Columbia  to   Yukon
By a bill which is now being rushed through the Alberta legislature,
the Canadian Northern railway under the name of the Canadian Northern Western, is given power to construct a railway from Edmonton
northwest into the Peace River country, and through the Peace river or
Pine River pass into the Yukon territory.
The charter also authorizes the
construction of the Stettler-Brazeau
road, which, on representations by
the Alberta Central railway, building
through the same territory, was
blocked this summer at Ottawa.
With a provincial charter and a
provincial approval of plans, the C.
N.R. will be in a position to proceed
with tliis line in spite of objections
from Ottawa.
Wlien the construction of the Slet-
tler branch was begun, the Alberta
Central people began to protest the
paralleling of their route. The construction of the C.N.R. Iin, it is understood, was not approved under the
Dominion charter at Ottawa; hence
the haste for getting a provincial
charter.
A. C. Mackenzie, head of the
Northern Construction company, who
was in Edmonton while the bill was
being considered In the railway committee of the house, will make preparations, for an early start next
spring on the construction of the
road to the Peace river, within the
next two years.
The bonds tor the construction of
both roads are now being offered on
tiie London market by William Mackenzie, president of the Canadian
Northern.
The bill provides that the company, may issue bonds to the extent
nf $35,000 a mile. The company is
capitalized at $6,0000,000. The'head
offices of the company are to be in
Edmonton.
The new railway to the Peace Is to
be made a part of the Canadian
Northern transcontinental system,
which will be completed within the
next five years.
Although the charter will read
that the line will start from a point
•at or near Edmonton, it is altogether
likely that It will be made to branch
off the main line this side of Las-Ste.
Anne, about 3 5 or 4 0 jniles west of
the city. From there the line Willi
go direct through to Grande Prairie,:
and to the Pass, crosisng the Athabasca, Little Smoky, Simonet and Big
Smoky rivers.
By die construction  of this line,
it     is     represented,     the     Canadian I
Northern will have two outlets to the
Pacific   roast   fmm   Edmonton,   one
via the   Yellowhead   to    Vancouver,-
and the other via the Peace river.
Will Open Vast Country
Twenty million acres of arable
land will be tributary to this line,
not. to say anything of the vast territory lying along the 1,100 miles of i
northern waterway that will be tap- j
perl by the line. This fact was
brought home to the Alberta legtsla-
tur by James K. Cornwall. The line
Is something for which Mr. Cornwall
and his constituents have been fighting for a long time.

CURFEW BYLAW
prepare suet e bylaw on the recommendation of the school board.
Last evening a letter was read
from the secretary of the school
board intimating tthe board desired
such a bylaw In view of1 the fact that
children were allowed'to run the
streets to all hours at night so that
they were not fit for study in school.
Aid. Naden felt that this curfew
bylaw was necessary. He moved that
it be referred to the proper committee to bring in a bylaw.
His worship suggested that the
city solicitor be instructed to bring
in such a bylaw.
Aid. Mobley felt that it would do
good even if it could not be fully
I'll forced.
Aid. Pattullo said he had Intended
to bring such a bylaw in but had
overlooked it.
The solicitors will be asked to prepare the bylaw.

ly during the entire winter. The
work west of Edmonton has been
very slow, owing to the difficulty of
transporting supplies, which all have
to be drawn in from the end of track
over very rough country, and can
only be done to advantage in the winter season on snow. As there is only
about two months of sleighing, it is
very difficult matter for contractors
to keep sufficient supplies to the
front. Last winter there were 1800
teams on the road drawing supplies,
still they were not sufficiently pushed ahead so but what the contractor
has been obliged to transport on
wagons the present summer. When
we get to Tete Jaune Cache this matter will b considerably simplified, as
we then get something over 200
miles of water navigation alongside
the right-of-way, and will be able
to make faster progress with the construction.
"The line east from Winnipeg to
Fort William is nearing completion,
the track being in such condition that
we have been hauling grain over it
to the head of Lake Superior since
about October 1st, and it is now expected the line will be ready for passenger service early next spring.
"The construction work on the
Transcontinental during the past season has progressed very favorably,
and there are many long stretches of
track now practically ready for operation. iWth the same progress that
has been made the present season,
the entire line/rom Levis to Moncton
will probably be ready for operation
some time next season. West from
Quebec there Is something over 200
miles already completed, and of the
Abitibi section, 250 miles of track
will be ready next season. East of
Lake Superior Junction to the head
of Lake Nipigon there should be from
100 to 175 miles of track completed
before the end of 1911. If the present good progress is continued, I can
see no reason why these different
sections should not be connected, up
by the end of 1913.
"The labor situation in the east is
considerably improved, and I understand from our contractors, Foley,
Welch & Stewart, that they see considerable improvement here. Whether it will continue to give them sufficient men to rush the work next
season remains to be seen. We apprehend, however, that there will be a
continual stringency in the labor
market until many of the large works
which are now under way are completed. Construction work, especially ln the east, is very heavy; this
company having under contract some
thing over one thousand miles of
branch lines, and the Canadian Pacific and Canadian Northern are extending very extensively both on the
prairis and In the eastern provinces,
all of which tends to keep the labor
market short."
