CY PECK TO RUN
Well Known Resident of the City Will
be a Candidate for Office
of Mayor.
He Has Been Waited I'lton by Many
Citizens and Has Apparently
Consented  to Stand
It Is evident now that Cy Peck,
one of the earliest residents In Prince
Rupert and one who has lived long
in northern Britisii Columbia, will
be a candidate for mayor at the coming election. For several days there
have been rumors that Mr. Peck
would be in the field, and it was
known that from many sources he
was being urged to take the field.
This evening, in reply, to a question as to whether he was a candidate, Mr. Peck did not deny that he
would run.
In Mr. Peck the city would have
a conscientious office bearer who
would devote his energy to the best
interests of the city. He is personally popular and has good judgment. In the office of chief magistrate, citizens would believe that
their interests were being guarded
carefully.
He has had quite a varied experience which well fits him for the
duties of office and under his guiding eye the administration of affairs
at the city hall would be essentially
along business lines.
It is to be understood from what
Mr. Peck says that a condition of
his running would be that a sufficient number of level-headed men
from all walks of life shall be ready
to serve as aldermen during the year
and thus assist in ensuring a good
working council.
SCHOOLS  CLOSED
Teachers   Take   Farewell   of   Their
Pupils for a Few Weeks
Yesterday afternoon the public
schools closed for the term, a number of teachers leaving by the Prince
Rupert last evening to spend their
holidays in the south. Only one of
them, Miss Mebius, is severing her
connection with the school. This is
on account of ill-health.
In this room a closing programme
was given which was of a most interesting character. In the other
rooms the regular order was followed until the hour of closing.
Many of the teachers were remembered by their pupils. Miss Martin,
who is vacating her room and taking
the work that Miss Mebius had was
presented by her scholars with a
gold handled umbrella and a beautiful purse. Miss Milligan was also
presented with a very pretty umbrella. Miss Mercer was remembered
by her pupils with a pretty handkerchief case and a number of individual remembrances, as was the case
with several of the other teachers.
Yesterday afternoon the members
of the School Board paid an official
visiting to the school visiting each
room before the closing' for 'the
Christmas holidays and wishing the
teachers a happy, holiday time.

CEMETERY   PLANS
Engineer's Department is at Work Laying out the Burial Grounds
for Use.
An Artistic Design Will He Used in
Connection With the Proposed
Undertaking
The city engineer's office is engaged in getting preparations made
for using the Fairview Cemetery as
a burial ground. At last night's
council meeting Air. Clements presented a plan showing the land laid
out in lots on a rectangular plan.
These will again be taken into consideration hy him looking to adopting a scheme more on line with the
general plan of Brett & Hall of Bos-
ttm, who had an artistic plan for the
place.
When Mr. Clements' plan was
taken up last night Colonel Davis
said that' the layout wou'd undoubtedly give the most lots to the ground.
He would, however, like to see a
plan showing the number of lots if
laid out more after the plan of Brett
& Hall, with winding roads. There
might be fewer lots with these winding roads, but it would be more
artistic.
Mr. Clements said that the grade
would be no better than in the plan
he had prepared.
Colonel Davis said that the lots
as laid out by Mr. Clements was un-
doutebdly the most economical as to
space but he did not like the look of
this rectangular layout. Some winding ways might be put through it.
Alderman Clayton thought economy-was not the only thing to be
considered in a matter of this kind.
He moved that this be referred back
to Mr. Clements to prepare a plan
along the lines of Brett & Hall.
The motion carried.

into Port Alberni (.teamed into that
town in five hours from Victoria yesterday. When complete plan.-- lire

hours from Vancouver: steamer connection with Nanaimo two hours, and
Nanaimo to Port Alberni two hours.
Alderman Morrissey is not a believer In the day labor system, apparently, or at least his views last
night on the subject of the sidewalk
on First Avenue would indicate that
to his way of thinking the contract
system would be better.
When the tenders were read as
tabulated by the engineer it was
shown the engineer was the lowest
of those offering.
Alderman .Morrissey wanted to understand what the city was doing in
this matter. The city had undertaken a lot of work under the belief that the work was being done
cheaper than by contract. He
thought there should be figures submitted to show what this work was
costing. It was reported that it was
costing in many instances far more
than the engineer's figures would
lead them to believe it was.
His Worship said that as far as
he knew they had only two sections
of rock upon which an exact comparison could be made. One of these
was the sidewalk on Seventh Avenue,
where the city did the work at a
saving over the next lowest tenderer.
The outside tender was 2 7-16 while
the city engineer's department did
it for 2 2-16, thus affecting a saving.
In another case, that of B16, which
was admittedly a hard piece of work,
there had been a saving under the
Public Works Department doing the
work.
Alderman Morrissey contended
that the pick of men had been given
the foreman in the case of the plank
roadway referred to and the lumber
was delivered without any loss of
time.
Alderman Hilditch said he was
ready to contradict Alderman Morrissey. There had been a delay in getting the lumber for it.
Alderman Kerr said the work had
cost $502, instead of $586 as tendered  for.
Alderman Morrissey wanted reports presented.
Alderman Newton objected to the
fact that the reports ordered weekly
earlier in the year were not presented.
Alderman Hilditch said these reports were brought down and remained unread by those who sought
them.
Alderman Hllditch thought it was
useless taking up all the time of
the department bringing down reports. He thought also that the contractors nad the same chance to get
good men as have tbe city foremen.
The Public Works Department will
carry out the work, the necessary by-
lhw being ordered to be prepared.
I In ins in City
The question of a barn ordered to
be removed from Fulton Street came
before the council last night, when
It was referred to the city solicitor,
the city engineer and the sanitary
officer, who will look into the bylaw
with a view to possible amendments.
City Waterworks Will Apjiear
Before Committee.
Alderman Morrissey Would Exclude
the One Who Expressed View*
as to Election
Several of the low tenderers on
the station work for the putting In
of the trenches for the city waterworks will have to appear before the
Public Works Committee before the
tenders are accepted so that the personnel of the men may be ascertained. At the council meeting last
night it was at first proposed that
the three lowest should appear but
as there were in the six stations practically the same men it was decided
later to ask five or six of the low
oues to appear.
Low Tenders
The tliree low ones were read as
follows, in the order of the price,
starting with the lowest:
Section 1-—John Peterson & Co;
John Peters & Co.; John Lindquist.
Section 2—John Peters & Co.;
John Peterson & Co.; John Istand
& Co.
Section 3—C. Halls & Co.; John
Peters eit Co.;  Carl  Lundquist.
Section 4—John Peterson & Co.;
C. Lestner & Co.; John Peters & Co.
Section 5—G. McDonald & Co.; C.
Lestner & Co.; Carl Lundquist & Co.
Section 6—John Peterson & Co.;
Carl Lundquist & Co.; C. Lestner
&  Co.
The prices asked by the lowest in
each case were as follows:
Section 1—$2,821.62.
Section 2—$3,960.60.
Section 3—$945.75.
Section 4—$3,497.66.
Section 5—$3,723.30.
Section  6—$2,314.75.
Wanted to See Them
Alderman Newton wanted the lowest tenderers to appear before the
committee or the engineer. John
Peterson had expressed himself as
prepared to support himself in the
municipal contest. He would like to
meet him.
Alderman Hilditch wanted the
three lowest tenderers to come before the Board of Works. He felt
that Mr. Peterson was so much lower than the others that he did not
believe he would take a contract.
Would Exclude Him
Alderman Morrissey said as far
as he was concerned he would not
favor giving a contract to John Peterson, who had written a letter stating
that he was going to vole for one
member of the council. He would
show this man that this council was
not open  to being purchased.
His Worship thought the letter in
which he referred to being ready to
support Alderman Newton for mayor
should not be taken as serious. Sometimes these things were not intended
to do any harm.
Later, under discussion of the calling of the tenderers to meet the
committee, Alderman Douglas made
a statement relative to the tenderers
being residents of the city.
Alderman .Morrissey said Hun If
this city was to be built ui) they
would nave to adopt a different
oourse to thai suggested. He >lie!
not believe iu limiting the workers
to  voters.     It   might   work  an   in-

FISHING CENTRE OF
THE PACIFIC COAST
Canadian Fish & Cold Storage Company With Headquarters Here Will Have a Fleet of Sixteen Steamers
to Ply Out of Here-Geo. H. Collins Has
Gone to England to Secure
Vessels for Next
Spring
Tenders will be invited in Kngland
for sixteen halibut fishing steamers
to he used in northern British Columbia waters next year for the Canadian Fish and Cold Storage Company, which has a large cold storage
plant practically complete at Prince
Rupert. George H. Collins, managing director of the company, is now
en his way to England to award the
contract with Britisii shipbuilders for
the fleet. The orders will be scattered as the company is in a hurry
to secure the sixteen vessels, says
tne Victoria Colonist. It is anici-
pated that they will be ready for delivery in the spring. With the sixteen vessels of this company at work-
next summer and the new British Columbia Fisheries Ltd. in the field
with a fleet of steam trawelers
brought from the crowded fishing
grounds in the North Sea, and other
concerns at work there will be a vast
development shortly in the lialibeit
and deep-sea fishing industry of British Columbia. Wilfred Vere Doughty,
who is well known in connection
with the Grimsby fisheries, is coming to Victoria shortly to complete
arrangements for the extensive business to be developed by the B. C.
Fisheries Company, whirh will have
not only a large cold storage depot
at Porcher Island and connected
closely   with   the   Grand   Trunk  Pa
cific line, but also canneries, salt-
eries, oil works, etc., and will place
a fleet of fishing vesse's which will
probably total a score of steamers
in the waters of the north.
The Canadian Fish and Cold Storage Company proposes to commence
business next April and it is hoped
to have the fleet of sixteen vessels
ready for that time. The company
is capitalized at $1,500,000 and the
plant will cost when completed close
on $500,000 and will be the largest
of its kind in the world. The building is of reinforced concrete built
at one end of the harbor of Prince
Rupert, and will bo fitted up with
the most modern machinery. The
storage capacity will be fourteen million pounds of fish, with a freezing
capacity of 110 tons per day.
With the completion of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, Mr. Collins points out
that fish from the Pacific Coast will
be put in the eastern market three
days quicker than now. The establishment will give employment to
500 men, none of whom will be Japanese. White men and Indians only
will be employed.
The remaining directors of the
company are: Andrew Kelly, president of the Western Canada Flour
Mills, Winnipeg; James Carruthers
of Montreal, grain exporter; and
Grier Starrett, former manager of
the New England Fish Company.

Solution of a Vexed Question by the
Ottawa Government Has
Been Reported
Victoria, Dec. 20.—Significant testimony to the utility of the recent/
mission to Ottawa is furnished In
telegrams just received from Hon.
R. Rogers and Martin Burrell, advising the local government of the
passage at Ottawa of an order-In
council conveying to the province,
rights in foreshore of the extinguished Songhees Reserve, and transferring to the provincial authorities the
administration of ull water matters
In the Dominion belt iands.
Without formal relinquishment of
Its foreshore rights by federal au-
Ihirty, the unfettered administration
and utilization of the old reserve
could not be possible, while all are
aware of the vexatious complications
of the past, the result of rough and
conflicting jurisdictions In water
matters.
Jurisdiction over all waterB within
the railway belt was recent'y decided
by a judicial committee of the privy
council to exist in the Dominion,
which haB as yet, however, no promulgated regulations.
It had been practically agreed
when Premier McBride, Hon. W. J.
Bowser and Hon. W. R. Ross were at
Ottawa that temporary a'dminlstra-
tlon of water matters within the
Dominion lands In British Columbia

LABRADOR FISHERS
, Rivers Inlet Find That White Hen Far
Superior to Other Nationalities.
Provincial    Department    Is    Taking
Steps to Improve the Situation
oi» Western Coast
The experience of the canners on
Rivers Inle', British Columbia, where
a fair proportion of white men are
employed, L 'hat man for man the
whites are better by 50 per cent than
Japanese and by a 100 per cent than
Indians. Such is the opinion expressed by D. L. Melntyre of the Provincial Fisheries Department at Victoria in a memorandum to Briti .li Columbia's prime minister on the subject of Dr. Grenfell s proposal to populate the fishing coast of this province with fishermen with Labrador,
says the News-Advertiser in its issue
of December 6.
The subject was first touched upon
as far back as June 15 last, when
Dr. Wilfrid C. Grenfell addressed a
communication to Premier McBride
from Ottawa, In which he proposed
to transfer a nuie.ber of Labrador
fishermen to the Queen Charlotte Islands or to Vancouver Island, describing them as being "of good
stock," English and Scotch, and fishermen to the soles of their boots,
whose acquisition would be of value
to any province."
Upon receipt of Dr. Grenfell s communication H, E. Young, the provincial secretary, who tcted as premier
at that time, had Mr. Melntyre make
a report in regard to British Columbia fisheries and the opportunities
presented for employment tn, the Labrador men. In his report, which is
highly interesting, Mr. Melntyre
stated that the Canadian Northern
Fisheries Ltd. had brought within
the months of March, April and May,
to this coast a large number of Newfoundland fishermen to employ in
whale hunting, halibut and herring
fishing and probably later In salmon
fishing. "If this company finds it
profitable to import these men," observed Mr. Melntyre, "the Labrador
men should be able t i find openings
here."
According to Mr. Melntyre, the
Labrador fishermen coulel readily
find employment in the salmon fisheries of the province from July 1 to
the first or middle of October, but
would have to compute with Japanese and Indians. "In' 190 there
were as many whites as Japanese on
the Fraser " said Mr. Melntyre in
hiB report, "but the number has gradually decreased, probably because
they were not prepared to leave more
profitable employment for two
months' fishing. The hen eng fishing
is largely in the hands o<" the Japanese, but this, I think, arise from
the fact that the Japanese fir.1, fovnd
a market in the Orient for a product
which previously went largely to
waste. Several companiej have been
organized lately to engage in fishing
for herring where oper.ne - for Labrador men might ultimately te found.
If the Grenfell Society coulf. provide
machinery' for marketing their fishermen's products, tLoy could probably make a profitable livelihood In
herring fishing alone. These fish
shoal off Nanalmo an 1 it the Straits
of Georgia from November 1 to the
New Year, but probably could be followed to the open oceai, if some prospecting was done to determine where
they proceed from there.
"The fisheries of the west coasi
of Vancouver Island are attracting
conslderab'e capital at present. Two,
If not more, new cannerie;s will replace old plants this year. The fishermen are largely Japanese and Indians, with a sprinkling if whites.
A colony of Labra lor fishermen
planted on Vancouver Island would
have the chances of reniployment
offered by lhe salmon fishing from
July 1 to the middle of Sep'ember
or the first of Octobei, .'.nd that of
the herring fisheri^ i n the east
coast from then to well on in the
new year in addition to thi uiam :es
of employment on rallwav nnd other
constructicn work in tlie southern
portion of the Island.
"The Queen Charlottes are largely an unknown field. Salmon Is plentiful there and a few canneries and
fiBh packing establishments have
operated there intermittently. » The
Dominion Department of Fisheries
sent Andrew Halkett, curalor of the
fisheries' museum, to conduct some
observations upon the salmon of
those waters. His report she- ' 1 provide some useful Information for Dr.
Grenfell. Halibut, herring and -fther
food fish are plentiful off the Queen
Charlottes and are said to be of better flavor than the fish caught off
Vancouver Island. A few Labrador,
men might find profitable employment fishing for the Prince Rupert,
Vancouver   and   Victoria   markets,
fields now partly occupied by Greek
and Italian fishermei.. These latter
nre gradually being ousted by Japanese because the latter combine and
pool their inteiesis, wfl'-xeas the
others, working Individually, lose
time, tides and markets through multiplying different varieties of work.
"The experience of the canners on
Rivers Inlet, where a fair proportion
of whites are employed', is that man
for man, the whites are better by
50 per cent than Japanese and by
100 per cent than Indians."

PROSPECTOR-BOTANIST
Pursuing His Hobby, Gervais Gathers
Remarkable  Collection   of
Botanical Specimens
The man whose days spent in
searching lor mineral indications and
whose dreams at night are of fabulous gold discoveries, lives too close
to the scenery to properly appreciate
the beauties of nature. To the prospector the trees and flowers of the
mountains are trees and flowers—
nothing more.
An exception to this rule is Gustave Gervais, a veteran prospector
of the north, who has in the course
of his wandering over southern Yukon and northern British Columbia
gathered a notable collection of botanical speciirens. In , jl)b, after several year i spent iu the northern gold
fields, Mr. Gervais began the collection of flowers, plants, mosses and
forest specimens, and before coming
to this district had accumulated
nearly 2,00U specimens. Some 1,500
specimens, which he had mounted,
were exhibited in White Horse, where
they attracted r.dmlring attention.
They are now deposited in the museum at Victoria, while the collector,
pursuing his hobby in northern British Columbia, Is endeavoring to complete his work by adding to his collection specimens of every variety of
vegetable growth not already Included. The only specimens which he
thinks it possible to add his his collection in the future are rare plans,
the seeds of which lie dormant for
years, awaiting unusual seasonal
conditions which may prove favorable to tiieir growth.
The ability to Classify such a collection as that of Mr. Gervais is possessed by few botanists, while . tho
collector himself lays no claim to
scientific attainments. Authorities
who have seen the specimens, however have informed him that his collection -' lcludes varieties unknown to
science, to the poBsib'e number or
forty or fifty.

MAYORALTY   CANDIDATE
The decision has apparently been
reached by Cy Peck to become a
candidate for mayor for the next
year. In Mr. Peck citizens have a
man who knows well the needs of
Prince Rupert, who has watched Its
development on tlie ground and who
is in close touch with all sections of
the community.
His qualifications for office are
such as to recommend him to all who
want to see progress and sane administration. He is a business man
who should appeal to the vast majority of the citizens as one entitled
to preside over the affairs next year,
being classified as a safe man.
It is but fitting now that a sufficient number of practical men consent to serve as aldermen and thus
provide a good business council that
will bring sense to bear on all questions that may come up.
We must admit that we are not
greatly attracted to pledges sought
for candidates. We prefer to take
men on their records and leave to
them the working out of the problems that arise rather than tlie seeking of promises on the eve of an
election.
Prince itupert has had enough of
wrangling in its short history without requiring any more. Let the
citizens select a good level headed
council and give them a chance to
carry out a sane policy with respect
to the place.

said the captain.   "Why, eating salt
pork which had been stored about
eighteen years before the war broke
out, and looking for water in the
tracks the horses made in the soft
ground. We were allowed one pint
of water a day. and this was to do
us, both for drinking and washing
purposes, so you may be sure there
not much  wasting done."
Two years later, when Captain
Pittendrigh was on duty in Malta,
he had occasion to inspect the rations
there, and he found the same eighteen-year-old pork in use. These
conditions have fortunately been
changed since then.
Captain Pittendrigh tells a.good
story about a noted British officer.
Some friends sent him a goose at
Christmas, and after ordering it to
be prepared, he Invited some of his
brother officers to share the luxury.
He was doomed to disappointment,
however, for two privates, learning
of the whereabouts of the goose, stole
it. He ordered the men to be
brought before him and asked them
why they stole the goose. They explained that they were so hungry
that they could not resist the
temptation. With the remark that
they did not care whether he had
any dinner of not, the officer dismissed them. Two years later, when
the same officer was inspecting the
regiment at Gibraltar he again met
the two men who had stolen thu
goose, and they burst into laughter.
The commander of the regiment
ordered them to the cells, and later
had them up before him. He asked
them what they were laughing at and
he was told the story of the stolen
goose, whereupon they were again
dismissed without punishment.

GIGANTIC WORK
Scheme Which Victoria Is Carrying
Out to Supply Water to
the City
The route of the proposed pipe
line for the new Victoria water supply, the contract for which has been
let to the Westholme company, is
from the southern extremity of
Sooke Lake, where a dam will be
erected, to a proposed reservoir in
the vicinity of Humpback Ridge not
far from Goldstream. Tlience the
line will run into the city and con-
nevt with the 24-inch main leading
to Smith's Hill reservoir. The total
length of the line will be about
twenty-two miles, the course to be
followed being at an average elevation of about five hundred feet and
requiring no tunnelling. The reservoir at Humpback Ridge will require
a concrete dam about thirty feet in
height to cut off a gully, but otherwise the natural facilities of the location will be utilized so as to give
storage capacity for a hundred and
thirty million gallons. From this
reservoir into the city the pipe line
will be thirty-four inches in diameter.
At the intake of Sooke Lake the
elevation of tiie pipe line will be 655
feet, and at the discharge end at
Humpback Ridge 495 feet. From
this point lo the city the line will
be of a capacity to deliver sixteen
million gallons per day, which would
be enough to supply a city of 150,-
000 population. If at any future
time a larger supply is required, additional pipe line can easly be constructed.
Wynn Meredith, the city's consulting engineer, states that the drainage area tributary to Sooke Laket
and including the Leach River area
is approximately thirty square miles,
or 19,200 acres. With a 50-foot dam
at the mouth of the lake a storage
area for seventeen billion gallons
could be secured. The construction
of these works, therefore, will probably Bolve the <-ii .\- s water problem
for about a century.

"If," says this woman, "working
girls can be taught to live on a small
sum they will find themselves not
only well nourished, but safeguarded
in many ways.
Every girl who has her own living
to make will find one of her most
valuable assets the knowledge of how
to live well and cheaply. Her health
and her strength are invaluable to
her. Surely the little time it would
take to learn what to eat would be
an investment paying immense returns.
Licking Stamps
The Lancet calls attr ition to the
licking of stamps as a "retrogade
proceeding" and says that any suggestion calculated materially to encourage or increase the habit is open
to strong condemnation. "The habit
is opposed to a common sense of
cleanliness; let alone what bactrlo-
logical requirements may teach. The
adhesive stamp is a sanitary blunder,
but It is a business convenience for
which it is hard to suggest an alternative. No persons need lick a stamp
if they seriously make up their minds
never to do so, but unfortunately the
use of stamps has created a habit
which once contracted, is difficult to
avoid. But, of course, as has been
suggested, there is always the
moistened sponge."

OUT OF GAME
Weighing close to 300 pounds and
declaring he will never fight again,
Jack Johnson, champion heavy
weight of the world, is In America
again. He has been obliged to cancel all foreign engagements and hasten to Chicago, where his wife is
seriously ill with tuberculosis.
Johnson declared that he would
open a cafe in the Chicago South
Side and devote the remainder of his
time to it. This is the first report
of Johnson's retirement which is
taken seriously, and the champions
admirers are everywhere demanding
an explanation of why he is leaving
the game without putting up a fight
for his title.
Unless Hugh Mcintosh succeeds in
his endeavors to get the big negro
to Australia for a bout with Sam
Langford or Jim Flynn, it is thought
that Johnson has donned the padded
mitts for the last time.
NEW  FRENCH  CHAMPION
George S. Carpentier, the 17-year-
old French welterweight champion,
won the decision over Harry Lewis,
the American pugilist and welterweight champion of England In a
twenty round fight at the Cirque de
Paris a few nights ago. The fight,
which went the limit was won on
points. Parisian society, including
hundreds of women in evening gowns,
saw the contest and applauded the
decision of the judges.
Joe Folger of Brooklyn and
"Jackie" Clarke of Melbourne Australia, won the New York six-day
bicycle race which ended Saturday
at 10 o'clock in Madison Square Garden. The Folger-Clarke team finished one lap ahead of six teams
bunched. Frank Kramer of West

SEVEN MORE WHALERS
Seven whaling steamers are to be
constructed at Seattle to enter the
coast whaling business. Three new
companies have been formed on the
Sound, the Alaska Whaling Company,
United States Whaling Company and
Western American Whaling Company. Norwegian whalers and Norwegian capital is interested in each
of the new concerns.
FOUR NEW TUGBOATS
Four tugboats have been ordered
by the B. C. Packers Association
from the Wallace Shipyards of North
Vancouver. These vessels must be
completed by April 1 and a start will
soon be made. Two of the tugs will
be steamers using oil fuel, and they
will be SO feet long by 15 feet beam.
The other two will be gasoline propelled craft 75 feet long by 14 feet
beam.
SHIPMASTERS ORGANIZE
Steps are being taken by master
mariners of Victoria to form a guild
with similar objects and aims as
those of the imperial merchant service guild of Great Britain, which
has a membership of about 15,000
captains and officers in the merchant
marine, Captain H. G. Jarvis has
been appointed secretary and asked
to arrange for organizing the guild.
Arrangements are now being made to
call a meeting of the shipmasters
and officers. It is proposed to Include all certificated masters serving
in Britisii Columbia waters.
The policy of the proposed guild
is not to be antagonstic to shipowners, but rather to aid the seamen In
matters affecting the efficiency and
responsibility of their profession. An
important object of the guild will he
to provide legal defense at murine
courts of Inquiry.

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
never 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 thiB way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus  stove bolts and stove putty.    It's
important to every  one  using  or  buying
a range.

33,000 SHARES HAVE BEEN
ALREADY SUBSCRIBED FOR
The Diamond Drill on the Ground Today
Limited Amount of Stock at 25 Cents—5 Cents Cash
Read this offer over carefully. Be
sure that it is right, then don't wait.
The owners take a chance with you.
They put up the coal lands and you
put up the money to prove the coal,
one-half of the stock for you, and
one-half for them. This is one of
the fairest and best offers ever made
to the public under ironclad conditions. A business proposition from
start to finish, there is nothing on
the market like it. Leases and Crown
grants to over 3.500 acres of the best
coal lands on Queen Charlotte Islands
are being conveyed free from all encumbrances to the Northern Anthracite Collieries, Ltd., capital stock
1,600,000 shares, par value of $1.00
each; one-half of this stock for the
treasury and one-half for the owners
of the land. The first 100,000 of
these shares of par value of $1.00
each, non-assessable and fully paid
up, are to be sold at 15c, 5c with
application, 5c in 30 days and 5c in
60 days. The proceeds from this
block of stock will be used proving
these coal lands with a Diamond
Drill under special contract, and in
charge of competent management. It
is expected  that the proceeds from
this first block of stock will be sufficient to put down at least three or
more' boreholes of 1,000 feet each.
This will undoubtedly cut one or two
seams of splendid coal—then see
your stock jump. Satisfactory tenders have been accepted and a contract let to the Diamond Drill Contracting Company of Spokane, Wash.,
for the boring and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe Bide, a. further
block of 100,000 shares of treasury
stock will be offered at 25c per share,
5 c on application and 5 c per month
until paid,'as soon as the first block
has all been subscribed.
Now, use your own judgment, but
consider carefully what your chances
are of making $85.00 on an investment of $15.00 in six months, or
$1,000 on an Investment of $150.00,
for as sure as the sun rises and sets
this stock will go to $1.00 at least as
soon as the drill cuts through the
seams of splendid coal that are surely
there, according to all experts' reports of the highest obtainable authority, who have reported on the Queen
Charlotte Islands coal measures as
follows: T. R, Marshall, F.C.S., 1902;
Dr.    George    M.    Dawson,    D. S.,
A.R.A.R.S.M., F.G.S., 1878; H. E.
Parrish, John J. Langdaie, 1867;
James Deans, 1872; James Parkinson; 1888; R. W. Ellis, 1906; T. B.
Cory, of the State of Washington,
U. S. A., and our own expert, C. F. J.
Galloway, B.Sc, who is among the
best authorities In B. C.
These reports cover first the Wilson-Robinson coal fields, three miles
north of this coal land; second, the
Old Cowgate coal fields, almost adjoining on the west; third, the Alfred
Bay coal fields on the south; and
fourth, the company's own coal, all
of which are positive evidence that
this is one of the best coal fields on
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Situate on Graham Island, Bearskin Bay,
one of the best harbors In the north,
at the gateway of transportation to
all points of the world, and. at the
very doors of Queen Charlotte City;
in fact, a portion of this coal underlies the townsite. No railroads to
build—just lead the coal from the
mines to the boats. These are facts
that defy contradiction, and within
five days the Diamond Drill will be
on the ground and in operation. This
is the only way anyone can tell how
many millions of tons of coal there
is in the property.

on this coal land can be seen. His
report is" all that could be asked,
practically saying that the coal is
there beyond a doubt, with sufficient
evidence in sight to warrant drilling
and development work at once.
Purngraph From Mr. Galloways
Report
"The easiest seam to prove will be
the Cowgitz, as its horizon is known.
I should, therefore, recommend you
to put down a borehole near the eastern end of your easternmost section.
At the point marked C on the map
the position of this seam should be
passed through at a depth of about
500 feet, the Camp Anthracite seam
being probably passed through In the
same hole, if it occurs at all in this
locality."
All promoters' stock is to be pooled
until $200,000 has been raised for
the purpose of developing the mine.
In conclusion, you will have the
satisfaction of knowing that your
money is all goinng into proving the
coal is there, not Into the promoters'
pockets nor to pay for a dead horse
of any kind, as the coal leases and
titles are all paid for and clear of
all encumbrances and will always be
a valuable asset. Fill out the application form for any number of

CANADIAN   OYSTERS
Wanton Destruction of the Bivalve in
the Early History of the
Industry.
Some of tlie Methods Adopted Which
Works  Havoc   Wiwth  the
Natural Beds
It Is unfortunate that such a word
as "conservation" should have been
chosen to describe a great movement
that must depend for its success upon
the interest and active co-operation
of the public. Too many of us have
(he idea that conservation describes
a process by which we are required
to impoverish ourselves today In
order that our great-grandchildren
may dwell in greater comfort; and
though there are many who accept
this description and are willing to
deny themselves, there are many
more who are quitely hostile, especially if they see their immediate
profits threatened in the' interests
of a posterity, says the Mail and Empire. It is necessary to say that this
idea of conservation is a wrong one,
and if we consider the doctrine as it
applies to the oyster industry we
shall discuss a subject that ought
to be of more or less interest to
everybody who likes oysters, and who
has observed the present tendency
for the oyster to become a luxury
which is to be enjoyed only on special occasions. If the oyster beds
of Canada had  been  properly con
served, oysters ought to be now as
common a food as salt herrings.
Even at the present time, if proper
methods are adopted, there is every
reason to suppose that oysters will
become much cheaper in the course
of three or four years, and that an
extremely valuable industry will be
established.
The oyster industry of Canada Is
discussed in a pamphlet by M. J.
Patton, M.A., assistant secretary of
the Commission of Conservation,
which is a repriint of a portion of
the commission's report for 1911. It
appears that there are only four
provinces In Canada that produce
oysters, and that the supply of one
of them, namely, British Columbia,
Is too small to be taken Into consideration, although since there are famous oyster beds on the other shore
of the Pacific, it Is probable that
our western provinces might ealso
build up a considerable Industry.
The other provinces are New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, the last being the most
important. The report reviews the
stattsics of forty years' production,
which show that the industry was
at its heydey in the eighties and early
nineties. In 1882 the zenith was
reached, with a production of 44,-
646 barrels. From 1882 to 1893
the production never fell below 50,-
000 barrels save in one year. Thereafter there was a decline.
In 1897 only 27,299 barrels were
produced. In the past two or three
years the output has been increased,
but this has been secured by greater
intensive methods of fishing, and at
the present time we are paying about
$350,000 per annum to foreign
countries for oysters that we might
just as well be raising at home. There
are are several causes of the decay
of this industry, some of which have
been removed by legislation in the
past two or three years, but one persists, and it Is the most important.
Wanton waste was the first cause
of the depletion of the oyster beds,
and in early years farmers in the
maritime provinces actually burned
thousands of tons of oyster in order
to obtain the lime contained in the
shell. Fishing through the Ice also
contributed its quota of destruction.
The oysters were raked from the
bottom through a hole In the Ice,
the larger ones sent to market, nnd
the smaller ones left to perish on
the Ice. More dstructive in Its tendencies still was the mud digging.
In order to get mud and oyster shells
to improve their soil, farmers were
in the practice of putting power digging machines to work for the purpose of scooping up the mud and
the oysters by the ton and hauling
them away as fertilizer.
These causes, however, have been
removed or modified by legislation,
although Mr. Patton thinks that
sometimes the laws are not as strictly enforced as they ought to be.
There is one great cause, however,
that has not been removed, and it
is a greater menace to the oyster
industry than any other. This la
the dispute between federal and provincial governments concerning jurisdiction over the oyster beds. The
present situation is that while the
provinces own the oyster beds, the
Dominion  has the  right  to  Impose
fishing regulations and restrictions.
The man who desires to invest his
money in the oyster industry Is thus
under dual control, and can have
no permanent assurance that his
capital will not be wiped out by a
Dominion regulation concerning nets
or close teason, or a provincial tax.
If he had only one authority to deal
with he would be less reluctant to
Invest his money.
The Conservation Commission declares that the history of other countries which have built up oyster industries is that only by leasing the
bars for a term of years to private
fishers, usually represented by strong
companies, can they succeed, It recommends, therefore, that the Dominion and provincial governments
should "get together" and come to
some understanding that would remove the natural apprehensions of
the fishermen, and those who would
be ready to Invest capital in the oys
ter beds. There should also be a
close season, and certain beds used
as preserves for a few years until
the industry has a chance to recuperate after a generation of neglect
and devastation.

WILL  ARBITRATE
Those Who Desire Courts Will be Obliged
in that Respect by
Council.
Any Contractor Who May Desire to
Settle   in   Amicable   Way
Will Be Met
At the council meeting last evening the question of what to do In
case of the contractors for the city
came up for discussion on the report
of the engineer. It was decided to
attempt to reach a settlement by arbitration with the contractors that
were agreeable to that course while
in the case of those who were anxious to take the course of continuing
in the courts an appeal should be
entered so as to test the question
of liquidated damages.
When the question came up His
Worship suggested that it might be
the wisest course to see if arbitration proceedings could not be taken
with the consent of both parties.
There were contractors who needed
their money and he did not think it
for proper for the city to keep them
out of anything that might be coming to them any longer than was
absolutely necessary.
Alderman Morrissey was for settling with these contractors, lie bad
always been against going to law in
the matter. The city had got a
decision against it and should be now-
ready to settle with them. He protested against any further lawsuits.
Alderman Hilditch was not in fa-
for of keeping a cent from any contractor that he was entitled to. He
felt, however, that Mr. Justice Clement had left the situation with respect to liquidated damages in a very
unsatisfactory situation. He had decided as to the strike period, but not
for the remainder. This question
was a very broad one. It meant
much to the city for a long time to
come. Sooner or later the city, he
felt, would have to decide in the
courts the rights of the city in contracts to enforce a clause for liquidated damages. It might be as well
be settled now. He did not, however, feel like putting any on the
contractors who wanted an amicable
8otii>>n».nt to any further delay.
Alderi nan Newton expressed his
opinion ai ' to lawyers trying to force
the city. In
T'he pity i„rsolicitor, however, pointed out that while one firm ol solicitors had shown a disposition to rush
to law and had put him as city
solicitor to a needless bother of having to telegraph below in connection
with a proceeding, that this did not
apply to all. Mr. Patmore, representing his clients, although he had
entered the case, had manifested
moderation and had proceeded no
further pending a probable settlement.
His Worship said that so far as
he was concerned those lawyers that
advised appeals to the course and
were in a great hurry to get into
the courts need not be surprised if
they were obliged to see the finish
in the court. He had every consideration, however, for the men who
were willing to settle amicably.
f After considerable discussion it
was decided to attempt an amicable
settlement where possible by arbitration. In the meantime an appeal
will be entered in the two cases of
Kelly  and  Watson.
On the point of liquidated damages, .Mr. Peters explained that the
Kelly case presented the easiest one
one upon which this could be decided
on appeal.

CHRISTMAS TREE
Presbyterian Sunday School Enjoys
a Holiday Treat in Theatre
In lhe Empress Theatre last night
the children of the Presbyterian
Sunday School made merry, while
the grown-up section of the congregation and many visitors also manifested a Christmas spirit in seeing
the enjoyment which the children got
out of the entertainment.
A large Christmas tree, loaded
with presents for all, was the great
attraction and Santa Claus was truly
in evidence in a very substantial
way. A programme was rendered
during the evening consisting of
songs, and a cantata In two acts,
"The Tables Turned."
The whole entertainment was
hearitly enjoyed by the large crowd
present.
THRIVING  INDIANS
Natives Happy for Winter on Lower
Yukon, According to Northern Exchange
That the natives in the Indian
camps along the lower river are in
excellent shape, is the word brought
by Rev. C. E. Betticher, who has
returned from Nenana, says the Fairbanks Times. On his trip Rev. Betticher visited the camp at Wood River, Lake Minto and Hot Springs, as
well as the smaller villages at different places.
At the Nenana Mission everything
was in fine condition. At the present time there are thirty-four children in the school. The hospital has
been completed and the upper floor
is being used temporarily as a dormitory for the girls until that building is finished next summer. The
Farthing Memorial Chapel will also
be finished in the spring.
Guy H. Madera arrived there recently to take charge of the industrial work of the children, and is
now nicely settled. Because of the
smallpox scare that started in the
Upper Porcupine ail of the Indians
have been vaccinated as a prevention
to possible communication of the disease.

Off  for  Christmas
The steamer Prince Rupert left
last night about nine o'clock for the

large crowd went south to spend the
holidays, the steamer's trip being a
grand Christmas party.

W. J. Leary of Skidegate left last
night for the Queen Charlottes.
J. Fred Ritchie has returned from
Victoria to spend Christmas at his

G. Kearney left last evening on
the Prince Rupert to spend a couple
of weeks in Vancouver.
G. A. McNicholl, superintendent of
the G. T. P., left last evening to
spend Christmas with his family in
Vancouver.
Misses Martin, Mercer, Milligan,
Mebius and Johnson of the public
school teaching staff left last night
by the Prince Rupert.
 B	
Building Bylaw
The building bylaw of the city will
be considered early by the council
with a view to amendment along the
lines suggested by the city engineer
with respect to certain buildings. Alderman Hilditch pointed out that last
year's council acted leniently in
amending the bylaw so as not to discourage building. More stringent
rules were probably now demanded
in the interests of fire protection.

Been Amalgamated Following Acquisition of Thomson Line
The Cunard and Anchor Lines
have been amalgamated, bringing
over 400,000 tons of shipping under
one house flag. No change, it is
stated, will be made with regard to,
the general management of the Anchor Line, but A. A. Booth and T.
Royden will join the board of that
undertaking, while A. C. F. Henderson will become a director of the
Cunard Company. The headquarters
of the Anchor Line will continue to
be in Glasgow. The combine is regarded with deep significance, especially when viewed in conjunction
with the Cunard Company's recent
acquisition of the Thomson service
to Canada. Syren and Shipping says:
"It is quite evident that the men who
now control the great Liverpool line
have mapped out a new development
policy which would have made some
of the former Cunard directors turn
pale. It is, indeed, quite possible
that Messrs. Booth and Royden have
in their minds to give us and English
