RETAINING WALLS IN
BUSINESS SECTION
City Council Grapples With a Serious Question Affecting
the Street Work in Section One--Loose Stone
Facing is Decided Upon.
The city council last evening
grappled with the question of retaining walls which will have to be
built in conjunction with the street
work done in Section 1. When the
subject was first introduced last
year it was felt that a great many of
property owners would undertake to
build the retaining walls in front of
their own property, getting the privilege thereby to take in a space of
10 feet under the sidewalk which
could be used for basement purposes.
The report of the engineer which
was read last evening Indicates that
a good many had got the privilege ot
so doing but few had acted on it. The
city was therefore up against the
proposition of doing it.
The retaining walls in Section 1
are no small works. There are
heights of about 30 feet to be attained in places. With this there is
the necessity of getting a solid foundation below, which in some instances is a very heavy work.
Heavy   Cost
The first report which was presented by the engineer to the streets
committee represented an expendi-
tureof $229,591 in Section 1, which
was regarded as a prohibitive cost In
view of the funds available. The
committee at once requested a
cheaper form of work and as a result of conferences about five different propositions were presented.
These varied in price from the
original one of $229,581 to about
$8,000. The character of the walls
differed of course materially, the
first named being a concrete structure built from bed rock in a manner to stand for all time. The cheapest character was a loose stone sloping surface, which the engineer felt
was the cheapest kind that could be
possibly used.
Yesterday afternoon the chairman
of the streets committee called the
members of the council together to
meet the engineer and discuss these,
feeling that each member should be
thoroughly informed on the subject.
The question with the council, as
with the engineer, was purely one of
cost.   All were favorable to the orig
inal form of wall if the cost were not,
prohibitive. The decision of the majority of the council was in favor of
the cheapest wall as the only one
within reach.
Various Propositions
The propositions of the engineer,
in brief, were as follows:
$229,581, which provided for a cement wall on bed rock, without surcharging and very substantially
built to resist all pressure.
$88,865, which would provide for
a surcharged retaining wall.
$09,822, being a«nodified form of
the $88,805 scheme, made cheaper
owing to the fact that large stones
would be used, estimated by the en
gineer to constitute about half of the
wall.
$40,000, a proposition providing
for this work proposed from Lynch's
to McBride only.
$8,000, and up if rubble walls
were used. These would be substantial, but would not be of as good
appearance as the other walls.
The streets committee reported in
favor of the last proposition, that of
the $8,000 and up, the cost varying
according as the work was done under the charge of masons or not.
Aid.   Hllditch   Objects
Aid. Hilditch, however, differed
from the commute in the matter. As
soon as the subject was brought up
he stated that he was opposed to
the adoption of the report. It meant
that a skeleton wall of about IS
inches was to be built. It was a wall
that would fall in if it were not for
the filling. It was not the fault of
the engineer because he could not do
better without funds. It reflected
upon last year's council that did not
provide for the work before undertaking it. It would be a disgrace in
years to come. It would give endless
trouble In years to come.
Aid. Pattullo wanted to know why
Aid. Hilditch did not raise his voice
las tyear as a member of the streets
committee against this. He understood the engineer to say that it
would render the streets    perfectly

Concrete  Piles  Will  Enter into  the
Wharf Work Which Is to Form
Important Part
The awarding of the contract for
the depot of the Marine Department
for a sum approximating $200,000,
Indicates that the Dominion government is going to equip an Important station at Casey cove.
"The work consists of the building
of a large wharf set on patent ferroconcrete piles, dredging In front of
the wharf, considerable paving, and
the erection of workshops, power
house, diuoy shed and residence for
the Btaff."
The Dominion government Is centering its marine work at Casey cove
on Dlgby island .which seems destined to become quite a populous settlement made up of government officials and those dependent upon
them. The wireless station is close
at hand, and the quarantine station
will also be located within easy
reach of the new depot which will
make the Dominion government section of the ctiy quite a lively place.
The work to be done at the depot
is to be of the most substantial character. Reinforced concrete piles are
to be used in the construction of the
wharf, making it practically everlasting.

Thomas Stedham Is the practical
head, has secured the contract. Mr.

QUESTION OP PRIVILEGE
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Newton Clash
at the Council Board
On a question of privilege Aid.
Pattullo last evening at the council
meeting introduced the Empire's
reference to the Industrial workers
and their resolution condemning the
members of the city council in the
matter of the increased rate of
wages.
It was charged by the Empire that
he (Aid. Patullo) introduced the resolution he did to refer this to a committee, only to sidetracK it.
Aid. Pattullo said that,Aid. Newton supported the resolution to refer
this to a committee. On that ground
he supported a motion to sidetrack
the issue. He objected to the threat
held out. It would be Interesting to
know If the editor-alderman spoke
for the "Manson party" In this respect.
Aid. Newton explained that he was
not there to "haggle." He had taken
no part relative to the resolution.
He denied that he spoke for any one
The method of assessing the cost
of storm culverts and surface drains
on the streets came up before the
city council last evening. The subject was in troduced precipitately by
Aid. Newton asking if be was correctly informed that the city engineer had ISO workmen in his employ in various parts of the city.
Aid. Hilditch, in explaining, said
he had intended to bring this subject up later and did bring up the
subject of the method of assessing
the cost involved.
Aid. Hilditch in reply to Aid. Newton's question said that last Wednesday, he had found 129 men .employed
by the engineer independent of those
employed in the electric lighting department.
Aid. Smith said about 20 were employed there.
Aid. Newton asked if there was
sufficient work to warrant this.
Aid. Hilditch said last week there
seemed to he too many employed. A
new plan was being introduced
which would, it was expected effect
a saving of about 25 per cent. The
men were employed for the most
part on culverts.
System Employed
Aid. Kirkpatrick asked if this was
being done under local improvement.
Aid. Hilditch said the work was
heing done. He did not know under
what authority. It had been a surprise to him to find this work being
carried out without any authority of
the council so far as he knew. It
would cost about $25,000 or $30,-
000, he thought.
Aid. Newton was glad to hear that
Aid. Hilditch was taking care to see
that the money was properly expended. He did not object to the employment ofthe labor if it were necessary
and the work was being economically done.
Aid. Pattullo did not think the engineering department should be criticised. The work had to be taken
up. It was paid for out of the general revenue but that would be a
question io decide later how it
should  be paid  for.
Aid. Hilditch said the engineer
had no right to expend $1,000 without the authority of the council. He
Aid. Hilditch never toad heard of this
authority being given.
Aid. Pattullo contended that there
was authority for it and the engineer
should explain.
Engineer Explains
The engineer being called upon,
said he was instructed by last year's
committee ot go ahead and carry out
such .works as werel necessary In
conjunction with the work. The bylaw gave him authority to engage
these men. The work had increased
at a considerable rate lately.    Three

OTTAWA, .Ian. 31.—Official announcement is made of the appointment of the Duke of Connaught as
the next governor-general of Canada. A cablegram from the colonial
secretary says the Duke will be here
in September, that his term will be
two years with no doubt the possibility of an extension of the time.
The Duchess will accompany him.
His Expectations
The Duke of Connaught, speaking
at a banquet at Guildhall, said yesterday it would shortly be his pride
to be closely, and he hoped affectionately, connected with the Dominion of Canada.

AUDITING DEPARTMENT
Information   Sought    Looking   lo   a
Change in That End of
City's Work
Some members of the city council,
including Aid. Kirkpatrick, chairman
of the finance committee, gave the
information last evening that they
would make inquiries as to the best
methods of carrying on the auditing
of the city.
It was suggested that some move
might be made to have the audit
kept up to date each month, instead
of leaving ii to the end of the year.
During the proceedings of the
council Aid. Clayton asked how long
the auditor was engaged and what it
cost.
Aid. Pattullo said the auditor
was far longer than was at first Intended. It was originally expected
that the work would cost $250. It
was likely now, however, in view of
the fact that longer time was taken
it would be more costly.

INSPECTOR OF  B.   C.  FISHERIES
William Manson Has Secured a Further Sum of $2,500
From the Provincial Government Towards
the Local Institution.
.1. A. Kirkpatrick, president of the
hospital board, received from Victoria today the gratifying news that a
grant of $2,500 in addition to that
already voted by the provincial government towards this Institution,
has been secured by William Manson, tlie member for this district.
The welcome news was contained in
a message to Mr. Kirkpatrick from
Mr. .Manson. The additional grant
towards this building will very materially aid in the task which tlie
board has of providing for the building.
The provincial government originally made a" grant of $7,500 to this
institution. Mr. Manson, knowing
the local situation and realizing that
there was necessity for a still further grant, was able to persuade the
members of the government on that
poinl ami succeeded    in    getting    a
grant, lliat is quite substantial to supplement  the former one.
The annual meeting of the hospital association will be hold in the
court bouse this evening al 8 o'clock,
when business connected with the institution will be transacted and arrangements will be made to carry ou
the affairs next year.
The grant made by the government, while of great assistance to the
association, does not remove the need
Which the board has found for the
fullest co-oeratlon of the citizens to
make the Institution one worthy of
the city.
The grant of the government will
be of decided advantage, but the
board is open to receive further assistance to overcome the pressing demands.

J. T. Donaldson has put in a request through his solicitor that the
city consider the question of remuneration on account of his having
fallen from the sidewalk and sustained injuries. The claim is made
that the sidewalk was unprotected.
The Dunedin block again came up
before the city council last evening
when it was decided to take steps to
have it torn down, charging the cost
up against the owner.
A letter from C. V. Bennett the
solicitor, was read before the council last evening when the opinion was
given that while under tlie act, power was given to tear down the building and make a charge against the
owners, it was doubtful whether a
fine could be collected for allowing
a condemned building to stand.
It was decided to have the acting
mayor and the chairman of the
streets committee go into the subject
with the solicitor and take the steps
necessary to have the demolition of
the building carried out.

with failing to seek information on
various subjects and long sessions of

Last evening he wished to know if

ORIENTAL   QUESTION
The Outlook Deals  With   the Subject
of Exclusion With Reasons
For It.
The  Inability to Intermix  Musi   lie-
main As Argument Against
Immigration
It has been very difficult for the
■ -'iiple living on the Atlantic coast
to properly unoerstand the sentiment
of the wesl with respect tc the Orl-
ei il Immigration question. The
"Yellow Peril" was to the eastern
mind, ihe product of an unduly excited western imai cation The east
are assimilating the alien races of
Europe, why should not tho western
part of America take up Us share of
the white man's burden and absorb
the Asiatics? says the New Westminster Columbian. There was, tco,
the Christian conception that all men
are brothers. These were the views
of easterners who looked upon the
westerner as exceedingly narrow-
minded in his exclusion atitude.
The east is beginning to realh.e
that there is some reason back of the
permanent, conviction of the westerners that this Pacific coast must be
kept as a white man's country at a'l
costs. vVhat these reasons are, an
editorial in the Outlook, the American magazine, with which Mr. Roosevelt is connected as. associate editor,
presents to the east, and it clearly
and convincingly explains why Oriental Immigration on an unlimited
scale is perilous to American institutions, and what applies to the Pacific
coast of the Republic applies equally
to Canada.
The real or the fundamental reasons for the opposition by the people
of this section of the continent to admitting the Orientals is not found
in social or economic objections.
Orientals are not barbarians, they
are not more vicious (ban die uncultured peoples of Europe who are represented in the immigration to America, nor more ignorant. They are
nol. more filthy, nor on Ire part of
the Japanese, more given to forming
a slum element than other immigrants. 1 hoir standards of living are
admittedly low an . they accept
wages on which a white man ennot
support his family.    But while it is
an important consideration, that the
wages and standards of living of the
workmen on the American continent
must be protected, since, quoting an
American writer, "the future of
American democracy is the future of
the American wage earner." The:
Outlook asserts that experience indi- j
cates that a limited Oriental inii«i- j
gration will not permanently depress
wages, and that the Oriental soon
learns to demand the current rate
and to get it. The real reason is
found in the firm conviction among
westerners that Oriental immigration will have a baneful influence on
Ihe national development of (he peoples of the Pacific coast and of
America. The Oriental in America,
it is believed, will always remain an
alien element, uiiasslinilated and un-
assimilable. Herbert Spencer Is
quoted as saying that If Chinese are
allowed to settle extensively in America, they must either, if they remain unmixed, form a subjective
race, standing in the position of a
class approaching slaves, or if they
mix, they must form a bad hybrid.
Amplifying this thought the writer
points out that the educated German,
Scandinavian, or Italian, if not the
educated Slav, becomes in the second ur third generation an American; but the educated Oriental remains an Oriental. Education in the
case of the latter does not solve the
problem, l.afcadio Hearn is quoted
as saying that "as the Oriental
thinks naturally to the left where
we think to the right, the more you
cultivate him, the more he will think
in the opposite direction from you."
And Kipling's lines point in the same
direction: "Oh, East is East and
West is West, and never the twain
shall meet."
It is better that Jiey should not
meet concludes this article. It is
not that the Chinese or Japanese are
inferior races ;it is that they are different. No nation, it is pointed out,
is large enough for two races. The
Oriental and the Occidental should
not attempt to keep house together,
although there may be a few intermingling in  international trade.

TO  EXTEND  PLANT
Burns & Co.'s Abattoir Will  Be
Greatly Enlarged—Reason of
High Beef     Prices
A $200,000 extension of the experimental meat packing plant, which
Messrs. P. Burns & Co. have been
operating at the abattoir at the foot
of Woodland Drive, in.Vancouver, is
to be built at once. Mr. P. Burns,
the head of the firm,  who reached
Vancouver from the east, stated that
work would be commenced immediately the materials could be gathered together. He expected that the
new buildings would double the capacity of the plant.
Regarding tbe reported rise in
meat prices, Mr. Burns said that he
anticipated a very considerable increase in the cost of beef meat in
the near future. While the cost of
fodder and hay was just now abnormally high this was not the reason.
It was purely a question of supply
and demand. The suggestion that
the severity of the winter in Alberta
had anything to do with the matter
was absurd, because the season had
been one of the mildest experienced
for many years.
In answer to the question, did he
think it was feasible by any means to
reduce the price of meat to the people, Mr. Burns said that if breeders took full advantage of the available  lands of Canada and  bred cat
tle, he believed that the supply could
ue brought nearer to tbe demand
than at present; but it was a matter
that wanted extended and careful
treatment and he did not wish to
say anything more on the subject at
present.

coming summer, owing to the fact
that the ('.rand Trunk Pacific has
been able to complete the steel of
their line to Prairie creek, and will
probably extend it on lo the Athabasca river in the su miner, says the
Edmonton Capital.
Although it will be another year
before tlie Grand Trunk Pacific will
take steps to establish their hotels
and, resorts throughout the park, it
will he a very easy matter for tourists to reach the park over the Grand
Trunk Pacific line, since it is probable thai a passenger service will he
installed right through to the end of
tlie sleel next summer. Prairie
creek is 35 miles from Ihe point
where the Grand Trunk Pacific crosses the Athabasca river, only a short
distance from tbe eastern boundary
of  tlie Jasper  Park.
The opening of tourist trade
through Edmonton to this new resort
of campers and mountain climbers
will he marked the coming summer
by the annual camp oi' Ihe Alpine
Club of Canada, which is to be held
this year in tlie new  park.
Development Work  Commences
Active development work within
the park in preparation for the
tin-owing open to ihe public, will be
commenced this spring by the Dominion Commissioner of Parks, Mr.
Howard Douglas, of Edmonton, who
is the most enthusiastic over Iho possibilities of the new park as a drawing card for an Immense tourist
trade. Mr. Douglas has made a personal study of the natural features
of the park and is preparing to devote a great deal of his attention
the coming year lo its development.
Ever since the park was first set
aside some years ago by the Dominion government, a number of fire
rangers and game wardens have
been maintained in „ne park. It is
expected that this number will be increased within the next year, and
that extra steps will be taken to protect the game and timber.
To Rival Banff
Banff, the Canadian Pacific railway resort in the National park,
which has been the mecca for years
of tourists from all over the world,
has been said by those tourists to be
the most beautiful spot in all the
Rockies, in both the United States
and Canada. If Banff has been the
most beautiful point yet visited, the
Jasper park in the Yellowhead will
furnish some surprises when It comes
to be opened to the touring public of
the world. From those who have
made personal Inspection of its beauties, it is learned that Jasper park
far exceeds that at Banff for magnificence of scenery. Towering far
above the clouds on the western border of the park, Is the majestic peak,
Mount Robson, rising to a height of
13,700 feet, the highest peak in the
Canadian Rockies. Only once has
that peak been scaled, and to a Canadian, and a minister at that, has
gone the honor of conquering the
terrific heights of this ice-clad peak,
which baffled the efforts of the best
mountain climbers of England, guided by the most expert of Swiss
guides. This Canadian minister, Rev.
John Kinney, alone save for the company of his camp companion, Kinney, a year ago last summer, undertook to scale the peak, and after
risking his life many times, and being nearly starved to death, succeeded, the climb to the top of the peak
and his return to the bottom, occupying two days.
A Tourist Route
What the opening of the Jasper
park to the public will mean to Edmonton in the way of tourist trade,
it is impossible to estimate. When
the Grand Trunk Pacific is completed to Prince Rupert, tourists will
have an all-Canadian tourist route
that will be hard to beat anywhere in
the world. It will then be possible
to take a train to Edmonton through
the Yellowhead to Prince Rupert,
down the Pacific coast by steamer to
Vancouver, and back eastward
through the Banff park. In this way
tourists will be given a glimpse of
mountain scenery that will be
equalled in few places in the universe, and all on Canadian territory.

CIVIC REFORM
Joseph Fels says to raise civic revenue by means of licenses is lo fine
men for doing something. The In;
terprelation is good, and it can be
extended to floor-spare tax, income
tax and poll tax.
The income tax which Edmonton
collecteil for 1910 is the last Income
tax that will be collected In this
city. The poll tax which was collected in 1909 was probably the last
poll tax that will be collected in this
city. The floor-space tax which Edmonton will collect in 1911 will
probably be the last floor-space tax
which the city will collect. The licenses exacted of real estate men,
financial institutions of various
kinds cigar stores, pool rooms, restaurants, etc., etc., will probably disappear at about the same time as the
floor-space tax.,
With the single exception of Vancouver, Edmonton places smaller
taxes on Industry, energy and enterprise than any other city io the Dominion of Canada, and Edmonton is
tending more rapidly toward the
place where all such fines wirl be
abolished than any other city on the
North American continent.—Edmonton Capital.
SHEDDING  WHIGS
Interviewed in Winnipeg, Joseph
Martin, member for East St.. Pan-
eras in the Imperial parliament,
said:
"In my opinion Mr. Asquith Is the
poorest parliamentary leader imaginable except Air. Balfour. Five-
sixths of the presenl Liberal party-
consists of Radicals, and we are
shedding whigs at every election.
While Mr. Asquith remains leader,
he is still further away from the
Radical point of view than he is from
Mr. Balfour."
Probably Mr. Martin had in view
when he referred to "shedding
whigs" the part he took in "shedding
wigs" as used in the law courts of
the province. Mr. Martin had no inconspicuous part, in Ihe movement
against the use of wigs and anyone
who has ever seen the member for
St. Pancras in his wig could not wonder that he was opposed to their
use.

diets Prosperous Year
The lumbermen on the prairies are
anticipating the busiest season in
history next summer, Mr. R. L, Scott,
the manager of D. E. Sprague & Co.,
who reached Vancouver recently,
said there is a very large amount of
building planned In Winnipeg tnls
year, the predominant portion being
small houses. Do said that 1910 was
a good year, but it was anticipated
that 1911 would exceed it In the volume of trade by 50 per cent. Mr.
Sprague, the head of Mr. Scott's
firm, has very extensive lumber Interests in British Columbia. He has
500 miles In the Fort George district,
40 miles near Cranhrook and some
more on one of the inlets adjacent
to Vancouver.
Mr. Scott Is In the city In connection  with  Mr.  Fels' advocacy of the
man  said:
"I don't practice what 1 preach,
but I am firmlyvconvinced that Henry George's theory will be eventually adopted by the most civilized
nations. Never has it compelled so
much respect as It does today. In
Creat Britain, in Germany, in Oregon, measures involving some of the
great political economist's ideas
have already been introduced. The
rest will come later, I believe." said
Mr. Scott, "in the survival of the

KELOWNA—The folly of negotiating the snow-covered mountains
alone has again been painfully emphasized. Charles Bailey has been
brought into town more dead than
alive, and with his feet badly frozen
as the result of a fall whilst out
trapping in  the hills east of town.
The snow is very deep now on the
higher slopes, and whilst making the
round of his traps his snowshoe
tripped in the burled underbrush,
causing hiin to sprain his hip. This
was Monday, and at the beginning of
Inst week's cold snap, His recollections of the terrible experiences of
the next few days are vague, and the
awfulness of the situation, away up
in   tin-   hills,   with -deep     snow     all
around   him,  wiih   ihe  thermometer
rapidly   falling,   and   a   cutting   wind!
tearing     through     Ihe     snow-laden j
trees, painfully struggling on with an |
injured hip, may he better imagined
Ihan described.
Soon after the accident he fainted
and lay all night where he fell, only
to find his feet badly frozen upon regaining consciousness. Tuesday, with
greater difficulty than ever, and the
slorm still blowing, he struggled
on to a pre-einptor's shack, but it
was empty and unoccupied. With a
twenty-two mile tramp to the next
place, many a less plucky fellow
would have now given In ,but, spending the night in the empty shack, he
continued his long tramp next morning, finally reaching Tom Leddy's
place on the K. L. O. Here assistance was secured from town, and
the unfortunate fellow placed under
the doctor's care. He Is pulling
through all right, but with the loss
of five toes.

of G.T.P.
Short Titles Are Given to Facilitate
Mutters Generally
A. E. McMaster, the local agent of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, who has
just returned from a trip to the east,
has brought with him the list of
names decided upon by his company
for the stations 100 miles east, of
Prince Rupert.
Starting with this city, the names
are as follows, with the approximate
mileage from this terminus:
Prince Rupert      0.00
Sockeye       16.61
Tyee    21.28
Essington       26.41)

Lakelse       82.80
Kitsum    88.36
Eddy       94.32
Copper  River    100.29
as the work of the telegraph operators. Mr. Chamberplain and Mr.
Hinton make a practice of submitting all new names to the telegraphic
staff, and they in turn eliminate
such appellations as do not lend
themselves to distinct transmission
over the telegraph wire. This accounts for the brevity of most of the
station names given. Indian names
have been preserved in the main.
Superintendent Phelan of the Yukon telegraph wire, and Contractor
Salvus of the Grand Trunk system,
have both been remembered and
their names perpetuated in the list
given above. Names like Kitsuin-
kallum have, under the censorship,
become Kitsam. The new names
will in all probability be promulgated in a Grand Trunk official order
in the near future.

UNIVERSITY LAND
Amending  Bill  Introduced   to  Extend
Time for Selecting Endowment.
Minister of Education Has  Measure
Before the Provincial Legislature
The minister of education, Hon.
Dr. Young, in moving the second
reading of a bill to amend the University Endowment Act, 1907, explained that the object is to extend
the time within which the government may make selection of the land
which is to form the endowment of
the'proposed provincial university.
The original limit of three years expired on April 2 5 last and it is proposed to extend this for three years
longer, or to April 25, 1913. The
reason for doing Ibis, Dr. Young said
was that since the act was first
passed the development had been
such as to prevent the department
from carrying out its plans of selection to the full extent. The act
also legalized what had been done
during the past summer. Continuing, Dr. Young said:
"The selection issproceodlng apace
and it Is hoped to proceed at greater
speed in the near future. The selection will exceed half a million acres,
enough to enable the government to
proceed with the carrying out of the
university scheme. It is my intention during the session to bring
down further legislation, as soon as I
get the dala I'riini Ihe surveyors in
the  field,  as   In   Ihe   Immediate  site
for the university. I will then state
what steps the government is taking
In regard to the establishment, of
the university, but I can assure the
House that everything is being done
consistent with the proper development of the scheme, to give fruition
to what the House has done in this
matter."

TO PREVENT PLAGUES
Prompted by the fact that the bu
honic plague is raging in the Orient
in startling proportions, the provincial board of health has renewed activity in combating this dreaded disease. All rules and customs which
were enforced when the plague visited the United States will be put
into practice in connection with al
steamships which enter Canadian
ports from China and Japan.
Every line with which a vessel is
made fast to the dock must be guarded with tin plates and every steamship must keep six feet from the
wharf to prevent rodents from leaping on shore. A man must also be
stationed at every gangway leading
from the ship to keep the rats from
coming on shore. Steamships which
fail to comply with these rules will
he heavily fined, as the officials are
determined not to let the plague get
a foothold here. Inspectors have
been appointed to see that the rules
are enforced and every boat from the
Orient will be inspected.
Soveran Instances can be cited in
which it seems practically Impossible to prevent some rodents from
coining ashore one being that nils secrete themselves in freight packages and when il is landed make
their escape.

THE COST OF CULVERTS
(Continued From Page One.)
months ago there were only about 11
men employed. Last week he had
to employ as high as 150 men to do
the work required in different parts
of the city.
Later, when this point of the
charging of the cost of these culverts
came up, Aid. Pattullo expressed the
opinion that it would be well to pay
for it out of general revenue in the
meantime, at least. Later, if it was
found that it was a work to be
charged up to local improvement the
accounts could be transferred to the
other account. In this connection he
referred to the fact that this was
done last year. When ah the moneys
were properly transferred from general revenue there would be a surplus of $25,000 in current revenue
last year. If the G. T. P. taxation
was settled on the lines proposed
there would be another $25000 or
$50,000 of a surplus.
Question of Surplus
Aid. Newton wanted to know If
the $25,000 surplus reported Included the appropriation of $1.7,000 for a
city hall and $25,000 for taking over
the telephones.
Aid. Pattullo said he did not favor
appropriations with provision for a
surplus, If these were taken out of
the $25,000 there would be no surplus,  it was true.
Aid. Newton objected to Aid. Pattullo taking credit for $25,000 when
there was actually a deficit.
Aid. Pattullo exlalned that if the
G, T. P. taxation were taken into account there would be $125,000 of a
surplus  really.
Aid. Hilditch did not favor this
taking money out of general revenue
to be applied later under a local improvement scheme. It was contrary
lo the act and the council might find
some time that the council would
not votethe bylaw and then where
would  they be?
Aid. Morrissey thought the question of whether these culverts should
be paid out of general revenue or by
local Improvement depend- d upon
whether these works served the general good or were pure:- .local in
character.
Aid. Hilditch doubted whether it
would not be necessc y to pi i bylaw dealing wltn this.
The matter was.flnall: allowed to
drop.

f  Hints for Women I

**************************
RENAISSANCE LACE
Ther is hardly any form of fancy
work that is more fascinating than
the making of Renaissance lace, and
even the novice, can make a fairly
good-looking piece if she is careful
and likes the work. The difference
between embroidery and lace is a
radical one; embroidery presupposes
a fabric, or something to act as a
groundwork, while lace Is a creation
In itself with nothing to start from.
Renaissance or Battenberg lace is a
braid lace, very beautiful, and is
always made over a design stamped
on cambric; Iho lines of this design
the braid is made to follow. Often
the lace Is made in a fine lawn centrepiece, and when done this way is
really prettier than wnen made solidly of the lace braid and stitches. To
do this the fine linen centre is basted over the plain centre of the cambric, and the braid is then basted
over the lines or the bars of the pattern. The basting must be done with
great care. Lay the braid on the
pattern and sew it to the cambric
with rather fine stitches through the
centre of the braid. When this is all
fastened to the cambric backing, the
lace stitches are woven into the
spaces between with linen thread,
thus uniting the whole into one delicate fabric.
THE NEW HEAD DRESS
Parisian millinery also includes a
variety of evening caps or headdresses, which, while they do not obviate the necessity for a quantity of
hair, certainly hide the greater part
of the coiffure. Some are mere hollow, upright bands, two or three
inches in depth, covered with gold
embroidery but without a crown.
Others have soft silk or transparent
crowns that cap the head softly.
One such Is of silver tulle with a
band of gold and silver lace. At the
left side, drooped over the hair, just
behind the ear, is a big blush-rose.
These hea ddresscs are not reserved
for the opera or theatre, be It understood, but are to be worn with dancing frocks as well, with which they
are very coquettish. Some are like
skull caps of gauze, studded all over
with tiniest of baby rosis. An occasional cap of this sort shows an aigrette or sparkling ornament at the
side,  tipped with  diamond     dust or
with gold powder.
Let it be added, for the reassuring
of bird-lovers, that the smallest possible percentage of the so-called aigrettes are the real thing. Rather
they are skillfully contrived out of
the stems of discarded feathers
which otherwise would go to waste.
FOR LARGE  SHOES
If shoes a trifle too large annoy
one by slipping up and down at the
heel, it may be remedied by pasting
a piece of velvet at the back and a
little way around each side. Another method, applicable only to low-
shoes, Is to sew a piece of elastic
across the back near the top and just
a little to each side. The elastic
should be stretched a little, and this
-vlll keep the heel from slipping.
NEW   YEAR'S  INFLUX
Ottawa authorities tell us that we
may expect an addition to our numbers of half a million people in the
next twelve months through the
regular immigration channels, says
the Montreal Star. Of this number,
it is anticipated that 350,000 will
come from Great Britain and the
continent and 150,000 will find their
way across the boundary line which
separates us from the United States.
To take to themselves 500,000 newcomers In the course of a year is
something of a responsibility for a
people who number between eight
and eight and a half million. Assimilation, even under the most favorable conditions, requires a measurea-
ble amount of time and, though we
have had no difficulty to speak of
in connection with our national digestion in the past, that is no reason why we should not take pains
to guard against the possibility of
it in the future. There is no reason for believing that we cannot take
care of half a million immigrants
next year to the mutual advantage of
both the immigrants and ourselves,
hut the character of the new-comers
will go far toward determining the
ease and rapidity with which it is
possible to transform them into good
Canadians and the method of their
distribution will be a powerful factor in the process. Normally the
great bulk of our immigrants will,
for many years to come, look to the
western provinces as their Promised
Land, but even among them, there
will be many who are better adapted
to the farming conditions of the
eastern and central portions of the

Dominion and who might with advantage be diverted to Nova Scotia,
New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. With the rising of the tide of
immigration there will inevitably
come a corresponding increase in the
difficulties which are to be adjusted
and the dangers which ought to be
avoided. If we shall ever need a
wise and careful handling of immigration problems, it will be during
the next few years.

We announced this new sales plan
recently, just to feel the pulse of the
people. Simply a small cash payment—then 17 cents a day. That
is the plan In a nutshell.
The result has been such a deluge of applications for machines
that we are simply astounded.
The demand comes from people of
all classes, all ages, all occupations.
The majority of inquiries has
come from people of known financial
standing who were attracted by the
novelty of the proposition. An impressive demonstration of the immense popularity of the Oliver Typewriter.
A startling confirmation or our belief that the Era of Unlyersal Typewriting Is at hand.
A Quarter of a Million People are
Making Money With
OLIVER

The Standard  Visible Writer
The Oliver Typewriter Is a moneymaker, right from the word "go!" So
easy to run that beginners soon get
in the "expert" class. Earn as you
learn. Let the machine pay the 17
cents a day—and all above that la
yours.
Wherever you are, there's work to
he dono and money to be made by
using the Oliver. The business world
is calling for Oliver operators. There
are not enough to supply tho demand
Their salaries are considerably above
those of many classes of workers.
"An Oliver Typewriter In
Every  Home!"
That Is our battle cry today. We
have made the Oliver supreme In
usefulness and absolutely indispensable in business. Now comes the
conquest of the home.
The simplicity and strength of the
Oliver fit It for family use. It Is becoming an important factor In the
home training of young people. An
educator as well as a money maker.
Our new selling plan puts the
Oliver on the threshold of every
home In America. Will you close
the door of yo — home or office on

SILVER   CUP  ORE
Excellent Showing Made By Trial Shipment Sent to Trail
Smelter.
Over SKI a Ton  Realized in Spite of
Exceptional Expense
Nearly all the readers of The
Journal are aware of the fact that
the Silver Cup company recently
made it thipmf-nt of a carload of its
oie, weighing 28,932 pounds, to the
Trail smeller, and nol a few of them
are keenly interested in the returns
to be reported by the smeller, as the
Sliver Cup 'a essentially a Prince Rupert enterprise. Vernor W. Smith,
the secretary of the company, has
just received these returns and states
that he has pleasure in giving them
to the readers of The Journal. They
are as follows:
1880.58 oz. silver at 54 5-Sc
per  oz $
9345  lbs. lead at 1.822 per
100 lbs., less 10 per cent

THE MARINE DEPOT
In reply to a question of Aid.
Newton asto whether there was anything to report as to the G. T. P. assessment question the reply was given there was nothing.
A petition has been received from
property owner on Second avenue
asking for a five-foot sidewalk on
the avenue from A. C. Little's to Seventh street. The streets committee
will  deal with  it.
The engineering department of the
city council has requested the appointment of an accountant. E.
Flexman last evening made application for Ihe position. The niattei
will be considered by the streets
committee.
975.90
153.23
Total smelter values. . $1,129.13
To this has to be added the government bounty on lead, say $70,
bringing the total to $1,199.13.
Also, it must be borne in mind that
this was unpicked ore, the object being to obtain an average value of the
ore, generally.
The smeller charges were $121.51
and the freight bill amounted to
$1.78.65, leaving the nett balance of
$888.9 1. This will give a nett profit
of about ?40 per ton.
One W'C-ouraging result of these
returns is the promise of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway to build an
eight-mile spur to the Silver Cup and
adjacent mines, on the modest guarantee cf hut two carloads of ore regularly every day. This is to be completed as soon as possible and will
make a difference in the cost of
transportation from the mine to the
railway of about $1S per ton, which,
of course, will be that much more
profit to the operating company.
From the recent sales of stock the
Silver Cup is now in a good financial
condition, having $13,000 cash in the
treasury and 1,400,000 shares of
stock. No more sales of stock will
be made except in case funds are
needed to push development work,
and under these circumstances It is
not likely .that any more will be
placed upon the market. The company is working a small gang of
men, and this force will be added to
as the season advances. But it is
not, proposed to make any more shipments under existing conditions, the
force to be employed in getting out
a large quantity of ore while the railway spur i« under construction to
ensure the regular shipments which
are the guarantee of its construction
The hotel keepers of the city have
petitioned the council for amendments to the liquor bylaw. It is
asked that the hours be altered so
as to allow an hour later selling. It
is also asked to amend the section
relating lo licensing bartenders so
that they shall be charged only $5
year instead of $10.

RACING DOOMED
The doom of horse racing in California will be sounded within the
next fortnight, according to leading
Republican legislators, who declared
today that the race track lobby has
thrown  up its hands in defeat.
The racing men are beseeching the
lawmakers to permit oral betting to

"What's mat noise?" asked the
visitor in the apartment house.
"Probably some one In the dentist's apartment on the floor below
getting a tooth out.''
"But. this seemed to come from
the floor above."
"Ah! then It's probably the Pop-
ley baby getting a tooth In."
A fire which wiped out what has
been a distinguishing feature ol'
Vickersville, occurred yesterday
morning about half-pase seven. The
building stood in the centre of the
flat area cf ground just off Cameron
bay. It was not a valuable structure, but afforded accommodation to
a considerable numberof roomers in
addition tothe family who owned the
premises. Mr. Haudenschild, the proprietor, is out of the city, but his
wife and family occupied the main
part of the building.
Fire Chmief Mclnnes has no doubt
the firestarted inthe top storey in
the room occupied by a colored man.
The building was a frame one, which
had been added to from time to time
and from the character of its construction lent itself to being quickly
consumed.
The fire department found the
premises in flames when they
reached the spot and were unable to
do anything towards saving it.
The contents, belonging to the
proprietor were, for the most part,
removed.
Breaking out just at the time
when many were getting astir, the
sky was lit up in such a manner as
to Indicate that a much more serious
fire was in progress, and a large
crowd made its way to the scene. At
first, from the heart of the city, it
was feared that the electric light
plant had fallen a victim to the
flames.
The place was at once time i;un by

Interviewed in Victoria after being
awarded the contract, Air. Stedham
said:
"We purpose starting at once, and
hope to have the whole job completed by the end of the year. We
shall give employment for most of
that  period to a staff of 150 men."
"I feel sure," said Mr. Stedham,
"that the determining factor in our

was our ahilii yto furnish the patent

Strong
If the plans of Major Lydon, commander of the Highland Cadet Battalion, materiaze, the regiment, two
hundred strong, with pipe and bugle
bands, wdll attend the coronation
cermonles which are to be held in
London next June.
Speaking of the project, Major Lydon said that if the permission of
Ihe Federal government for the battalion to leave the country Is obtained, he believed It would be possible to raise sufficient money for
tne expenses of the trip by public
subscription. Already several large
sums have been promised by prominent Montrealers In the event of the
trip  being undertaken.
safe.   It would not be as satisfactory
for adjoining property.
Aid. Newton said he had been
called upon in the afternoon to take
into consideration a proposition that
he had never had to consider before.
He hesitated about adopting a report,
in view of the views expressed by the
chairman, Aid. Hilditch. He would
like to see this laid over.
Question of Money
Aid. Pattulo said he personally favored the $228,000 scheme if the
money could be obtained.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that the
whole of Section 1 was an area of
local improvement. When turned
over to the city it would have to
be kept in repair. He did not want
to see a proposition taken over that
would be an endless bill of expense,
it would be better to pay for this
out of general revenue. He would
favor the $88,000 scheme rather
than the loose wall.
Aid. Morrissey pointed out that
the carrying out of the $88,000
scheme would entail removing some
parts of the fills now made. They
might have to indemnify the contractors for delay. An engineer was engaged at a high price-. The engineer
made it quite clear that rip rap laid
tinder the charge of masons would
be satisfactory. It was felt that under the present condition of the finances that this would be advisable
and future generations might take a
share in the work.
Follow Engineer
Aid. Clayton felt that the permanent retaining walls would be the
cheapest in the long run. It would
cost too much, however. Railways
built their lines along the principle
of improving later on. He felt the
engineer who was reputed to be a
good one should be followed in the
matter. He said it would be satisfactory.
Aid. Morrissey could not agrea
with the $40,000 proposition. As
the representative of Section 1 he
represented It all. To do only a
part of the local improvement area
—as the $40,000 proposition would
do, might lead to complications.
The report carried on the following vote: For—Aid. Clayton, Aid.
Kerr, Aid. Pattullo, Aid. Morrissey,
Aid. Newton and Aid. Kirkpatrick;
against—Aid. Hllditch.
