FAVOR EARLY START ON
THE WATER WORKS SCHEME
Probable Cost of Acropolis Hill Reservoir, Pipe Line to Shawatlans
Lake, Distribution System and Temporary Pumping Plant is
Put at About $173,000 by the City Engineer-He
Wants to Commence Without Delay
At the council meeting last night
the hydro-electric question came
upon a report of the city engineer
covering his visit to Seattle and Victoria. The engineer was present
and during the evening lie gave information as to when he expected to
get the system working if the construction  were  undertaken  at once.
The report stated that Mr. Thompson, the consulting engineer, approved of the substitution of steel pipe
for wooden at Lake Woodworth. He
also approved o'f the concrete dam
Instead of the wooden one. There
were several other points that had
been presented before him and to
which he gave ready consent.
In Victoria assent was obtained to
carrying the work over government
land and the public health department seemed agreeable to allowing
the trees to stand on the submerged
parts of the shore line.
Cost  of  Work
The cost of the work remaining
to be done was pust by Colonel Davis at $92,530, which did not include
$73,874 worth of pipe already ordered for the work btit which included
the distribution system.    This cov-
FAVOR EARLY START	
ered the work from Acropolis Hill
reservoir, which was also included to
Shawatlan's Lake with the pumps in
stalled there for pumping the water
into the city until the work was completed to Woodworth Lake. The city
engineer placed this estimate as a
conservative one. Including about
$6,000 already expended, the total
cost for this part of the undertaking,
leaving out the pipe ordered, would
be less than $100,000.
In the estimate given the cost of
the reservoir was put at $17,780.
The submerged pipe would cost
$6,100, while the pipe from the passage to Shawatlans Lake was put at
$8,500.
Employing Men
He  suggested   in  his  report that
about forty men should be started
to work at once so as to complete
what remained to be done in the
two months' time, when it was expected the pipe would be here. He
proposed also to set nine men at
work clearing the pipe line from the
Passage to Shawatlans so as to have
that work ready in time. The pipe
for this, he thought, should be ordered at once.
A  Salmon  Question
Alderman Morrissey called attention to the fact that he had been informed that salmon went up in the
summer to Shawatlans and died
there. This would contaminate the
water.
Alderman Montgomery thought
that the salmon that went up there
returned to salt water.
The opinion of Colonel Davis being sought, the city engineer said
that he had not seen many dead salmon there. He thought the whole
difficulty cbuld be overcome by placing a screen in at the entrance to
the lake.
Date of Completing
On the matter of the time for
completion of the work the engineer
said that he wanted to bring it forward as fast as it could be done.
Alderman Maitland said that nine
years ago there was just such a winter as this, with no snow on the hills.
All the canneries had to close that
summer for lack of water. There
would not be water enough on the
island for the city and the cold storage, which would be ready by June.
The engineer was a fraid that water enough for the city and the cold
storage might be a difficulty. He
had had one of engineers making
Investigations to see if there was
not some supply of water near to the
cold storage that would serve it.
Colonel Davis further stated that
if the work started at once he
thought he could get this part of the
supply completed  by the end of the
GROUNDHOG COAL
Early Start is Being Hade to Get Supplies Into This Famous
District
Twenty Dog Teams Have Loft Hazelton With Material for Ore
Company
It is evident that the Groundhog
Mountain Coal region will be fully
exploited this year. Already reports
hpve been received that supplies are
being arranged for the district so
that an early start may be made In
the spring in this most promising
area.    The Omineca Herald says:
Frank Jackson arrived in town
last week after a trip into the
Ground Hog coal country, where he
went to prepare the way for Ihe first
supplies. This week Mr. Jackson
started twenty dog teams of four
dogs each off on the trail for the
B. C. Anthracite location.
The teams carried in four tons of
supplies and they will go up the
river, which is much the best way
to travel. The river is now in good
shape for travelling and the dog
train will arrive at its destination in
about  twenty-five  days.
With the supplies six men also
went in and they will start to work
immediately on the development.
The supplies include several drills
and other plant as well as the grub
for the men. This will last until
he can get in a pack train after the
snow is gone.
Mr. Jackson leaves for a trip to
Vancouver and Victoria and when
he returns he will arrange for taking
in more goods.
This is the first train of many
that will go into that country from
Hazelton    between    now    and    the
LICENSE   BOARD
Private Meeting of the New Body 1
Yesterday Afternoon to Discuss Natters
Council Deals With One Point Which
Was Reported to It Last
Night
The new License Board, consisting of Mayor Newton, Alderman Kerr
and Dr. Cade, held its first meeting
yesterday afternoon. The meeting
was a private one not open to the
public. One recommendations was
made to the council from that body
last night. It was thai the licenses
of bartenders should nol be Issued
until referred to the chief of police.
When the recommendation came
up before Ihe council Alderman Clayton asked how these licenses were
Issued In the past.
The mayor said thai H had been
found that some licenses had been
Issued without due consideration. It
was the intention to have the chief
of police pass upon each of these.
Alderman Clayton did not see that
the council had anything to do with
this. This was something that came
within the power of the commission.
The recommendation was carried.

year.   Work would have to bebegun,
however, at once.
Estimate of Cost
Alderman Clayton thought that before this could be intelligently dealt
with it would be necessary to have
some idea of the cost from Shawatlans to Woodworth.
Colonel Davis said this brought the
cost well within the estimate of
$550,000.
On the question of giving employment to four men, Alderman Maitland thought it would be better to
start work from one end to the other.
There were many married men wanting work.    If only for*y men were

YEAfc IN LUMBER
January Hakes Excellent Showing in the
Hatter of Receipts From the
Forrest Lands
British Columbia's Timber Affords a
Big Income—Inquiries as to the
Amounts Secured
During the single month of January lust at an end a total of upwards of a quarter of a million dollars was brought to the provincial
treasury through the various operations of the timber branch of the
Lands Department, the exact figures
as to revenue being $253,606.20.
This large amount Includes $231.-
611.20 from timber licenses alone,
there having been 847 issued for
lands west of the Cascade range,
producing in charges the sum of
$129,127.40, and 815 for lands east
of the Cascades, with receipts of
$102,483.80. Timber license transfer fees aggregated $ol0, penalties
$1,650, 176 coal prospecting licenses
$19,450, and coal prospecting license
transfer fees $585.
In the event of the January record being sustained, 1912 promises
to eclipse even the year recently
closed, which is in its turn set a
new mark for British Columbia timber, both as to the cut and the
royalty collected. During the past
year the timber cut from provincial
lands totalled 1,100,000,000 feet, as
compared with a total of 936,000,-
000 feet in 1910. Estimating the
cost of production at $15 per M
feet, the expenditure in manufacture of the 1911 timber cut of British Columbia reached $16,500,000.
Of the total cut 45,000,000 feet only
were exported to the United States.
The total collection for the year In
royalties and taxes, exclusive of rentals, was $444.:!3:i::. compared With
$393,598 for Ihe previous twelvemonths,

SYSTEM OF UNDERGROUND
WIRING MAY BE ADOPTED
In the Meantime the Intention is to Allow the Poles on the Streets as
the Least Expensive Way of Carrying on the Work—If Put
In Alleys Cost Would be Nearly Three Times as
Great as the Other Way
It is suggested that before very
long Prince Rupert may have Its
electric wires placed underground as
is done in other metropolitan cities.
That this move is actually under consideration and may soon become accomplished was hinted at by Alderman Clayton, the chairman of the
Light, Power and Telephone Committee at the council meeting last
night.
The new electrical superintendent,
Mr. Matthews, Is giving very careful
attention to the work under his
charge and from the remark of Alderman Clayton this subject appears
to have been considered by him.
The matter of placing additional
poles for lighting came up last night,
when Mr. Matthews presented a re
port which advocated placing Ibe
poles on the streets instead of In the
lanes, from the standpoint of economy. The number of poles required
if the lines were carried along the
alleys would be, when compared
with the carrying of the wires along
the streets as 11 is to 5,
In view of the fact that the poles
would have to be carried by band
into the alleys and other expenses
would be involved the relative cost
of the two systems was put at nearly
3 to 1, the street line system being
the  cheaper.
Adopted Report
Alderman Clayton in moving the
adoption of the report said he did
so not as standing for this becoming a permanent system but In order
to avoid the heavy expense that
would be entailed. There would be
a large expense In carrying the poles
by hand. Later there would be a
move to have these poles removed
and the wires placed underground
on the streets. This was something
which be hoped come to see done
here.
New Equipment
Later in the evening there was a,
report from Mr, Matthews with respect to the equipment being furnished for the new units in the electric lighting station. There were defects to his mind in the attaching of
some pulleys to the shafting. He advised acquainting the company with
the fact.
This  was agreed  to.

MAY  NOT  EXTRADITE
Bank   Bobbers  May Not Me  Brought
to Canada to Answer Crime
Victoria, Feb. 9.—Although nothing officially has been received from
New York, it is generally believed
in the attorney general's department
that the evidence against McNamara
and Dean, the men alleged to be the
robbers of the Bank of Montreal at
New Westminster, Is not sufficient
to secure extradition.
It is thought the Plnkertons have
not been able to make out a strong
enough case. The third man arrested recently In Chicago in connection
with the case has been given his liberty, the attorney general not considering the evidence strong
enough to commence extradition pro
ceedings.

THE RESERVOIR
The Acropolis Hill reservoir will
be ready for tlie cement lining In six
weeks or two months, the engineer
says. When completed water will be
turned Into it without waiting for
the completion of the system to Sha-
watlans Lake, it can be pumped full
from Morse Creek and afford protection from lire to the residents In the
congested parts of the city.
The reservoir should be of decided
advantage but we hope the engineer
will lake no chances in the construction that will render it defective. A
few hundreds or even thousands of
dollars spent at the first will be
easily saved If the basin is made absolutely water tight.
We have no reason to doubt the
ability of the city engineer. We have
confidence enough in him to know
that he will provide for a reservoir
that is adequate in every respect.
But sometimes city councils become
economical and engineers give way
to this spirit of saving at the expense of efficiency.
On this coast there is a glaring
example of a defective reservoir
Which is lined with cement. It is
in Victoria where for three or four
years the city has been trying to
correct the defects. From the start
the basin has leaked and while there
have been improvements made in it,
the reservoir is still a troublesome
question there.
That work was carried out under
a very efficient engineer and yet
detects exisi. All kinds of theories
have been advanced and remedies
tried but still the water refuses to
Btay in  It,
Prince Rupert cannot afford to
make a mistake like that which was

CHARACTERISTIC   PINCHES
Since Jack Johnson has signed for
a championship battle with Jim
Flynn there have been discussions as
to the sleep-producing power of his
right uppercut. This punch is
Johnson's favorite blow, being the
instruments which forced the late
Stanley Ketchel to take the count.
Also Johnson landed this right uppercut in the region of Jeffries' jaw
at Reno. He relies on his right
hand to finish a battle. Going back
through pugilistic history one can
find many instances of fighters who
were not at all different from John-
eon.
Some sixty years ago Tom Hyer
won the championship of America
with straight hitting from the
shoulder. He punched like a battering ram with either hand, ■ind in
this way beat down Yankee Sullivan,
who was one of the trickiest fighters who ever stepped into a ring.
Hyer seldom hooked or crossed at
the present boxer Is accustomed to,
and probably is the only man who
ever wholly employed a straight
punch in a battle.
Sullivan  Had One  Blow       '
Join L. Sullivan won the heavyweight championship of ihe world
will a right swing to the Jaw. Sul-
li an was a "one ' vo" boxer, loading with his left to the body and
head and trying to get an opening
for his right swing. Ilo did not
have the science of the present day
boxer, who uses similar tactics. He
bored in like a bull, infuriated by a
pickador, and beat down his opponent by brute strength. One who
could avoid Sullivan's right hand
generally gave him considerable
trouble. Charley Mitchell and Jake
Kilrain made Sullivan work thirty-
nine and seventy-five rounds, res-
spectively, for no other reason than
they stood clear of his right hand
swing.
James Corbett humbled, pummel-
ed and defeated Sullivan, making
him hit nothing but air with his
right swing. Sullivan's lack of pugilistic skill in that memorable battle was the cause of his downfall.
He had but one punch and Corbett
was scientific and agile enough to
avoid it. Corbett's best blow was a
sharp cutting left to the jaw, which
he landed with great rapidity, It did
not carry the knockout sting, but
chopped the recipient to pieces and
wore him the point of exhaustion.
Corbett used his right on defence the
greater part of the time.
A snappy, short, left hand wallop
stopped litany men Tor Jack Demp-
sey. Rushing sluggers never lasted
long for him, for usually they ran
into his left on the first rush. Demp-
sey had an educated and damaging
right, but he used it but little, seeming favoring that side of him and
using his right for defensive work,
as did Corbett.
Gaiis a Two-Hander
Joe Gans employed a finishing
right hand hook which made him
famous. Gans, though, was an artist in the fistic game and one of
the best two handed fighters the
sport has ever known. Gans not only
had a favorite punch, but he thought
out a battle before he started. In
his championship affair with Frank
Erne, Gans outguessed Erne in
feints. Erne had a conquering way
of pulling back a few inches In a
feint and then landing. Gans planned, therefore, to feint simultaneously and to hook his right to the
jaw as Erne pulled back. This is
exactly what happened and Gans
scored one of tlie cleanest knockouts on record.
Robert Fitzsinimoiis and (he solar
plexus blow are synonymous, II was
the left hand shift with the stomach
and jaw as Stopping points that won
the championship of the world for
"Ruby Robert." He stopped with
thai left hand blow, Hall, Maher,
Creedou and Sharkey, and he landed
it on Jeffries, but broke his hand
trying to make the his I'ali'ornian
stop. Half-arm jolts with either
hand also won many victories for
Fitzsimmons.
Jeffries was essentially a left
hand fighter and his hesl "meal
ticket' a rigid left hand hood. This
cannon ball punch stopped Fitzsimmons, Ruhlin, Corbett and Munrote.
Iu each instance he reached the body
with the punch and he followed
quickly to the jaw. Sharkey sustained several broken ribs from the
force of this left punch.
Dropped as Though Shot
Stanley Ketchel was a wonderfully
hard hitter, his left swing following
a feint and shift, dropping most of
his opponents as though they had
been shot. Johnson received the full
effects of this blow when he met
Ketchell, and, although he was not
knocked out, he was sent off his
feel and carried a lump on his chin
for several days after. Ketchel's
style was awkward. He lacked the
science of self-protection and was
forced to take much protection because of it. Ketchel was built to
stand the hard usage, and he managed to survive some hard beatings.
A twist of the wrist featured the
punch styled the "corkscrew," which
Kid McCoy used for his "K. 0."
Though but a small man in build
and frail always, McCoy knocked out
many of the heavyweights with this
peculiar blow. With this punch he
cut his man to pieces, forcing each
to take the count through loss of
cuticle and blood.
Battling Nelson Introduced many
"bad uns" to the fistic art. His "half
scissors hook," plunging the side of
the hand with the thumb and forefinger on top of the rival's liver,
created pain. His "whiskers punch,"
going without a shave for a week
and running the bristly beard in the
eyes of the opponent, hurt the other
fellow's eyesight and gave "Bat" an
advantage. Also his "wire hair"
punch, rubbing the top of his head
across the opponent's eyes, gave Bat
the same advantage.
Tlie kidney punch, so called, is
used by almost every boxer, but as
a matter of fact it is misnamed, for
the blow is generally landed in the
small of the back below the proper
place. It would be more proper to
style it a solar plexus blow, for it
hurts the same organs when landed.
LONGBOAT   "COMES  HACK
In Edinburgh, after running a
splendid race for fifteen miles
against Hans Holmer of Canada and
and Kohelniainer, the Findlander,
who won the Powder Hall Marathon
in Edinburgh about a month ago,
Tom Longboat, the Canadian Indian,
won by two feet. It was a great race
from the start.

the engineer would be ready to carry
out the work properly. The engineer could start with the two gangs
and then add more men as the occasion demanded.
Alderman Maitland pointed out
that by starting the work at different places the men living in the different sections could be g'ven work.
The engineer said he was agreeable  to  putting  on  more  men  and
completing the work sooner.
The   Reservoirs
Some questions were asked the engineer as to Acropolis Hill. The
engineer said that the work there
was now costing $2.86 a yard instead
of $3.05 as at first. Inside of about
two months or probably In six weeks
that work would be done. The concrete work would then start and the
reservoir would be ready In about
four months' time It could be used
before that from Morse Creek.
, Will Try Day Labor
' Clauses In the original report of
the Public Works Committee dealing with the hydro-electric undertaking were disposed of, one recommending that contracts be 'et for the
pipe laying from Shawatlans to
Woodworth, which Alderman Moris-
sey had introduced was laid over.
Alderman Montgomery said they
would try out the day labor system
en the other part first.
The motion to lay it over carried,
■with Alderman Morrissey and Alderman Clayton voting against it.

Good. Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
■ever have "air leaks"—
For around every opening Into the body there
is a   Malleable   Iron frame to which the
steel is riveted.
No putty Is needed In such joints.   They are
air tight when new and stay air tight
If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus  stove holts and stove putty.    It's
important to every  one  using or buying
a range.
