DISPUTED   ACCOUNTS
City Council Takes Action Upon Claims
That Have Been
Standing.
Empire   to   Be   Paid   in   Full—Williams mid Manson's Bill
Stands Over
The finance committee of the
council last evening reported In favor of settling with W. J. Taylor,
K. C, of Victoria, with respect to
his services in preparing the city
charter for the sum of $1,000; in
favor also of settling the Empire
account for $257 in full; and In favor of paying Williams and Manson
the solicitors, to the end of January,
but not for February. The committee also advised letting the matter
of the government account stand
over for the present.
With respect to Mr. Taylor's account, Aid. Newton said that the
committee went into this fully.
Mayor Manson reported that lie had
done the best he could in the matter and It was deemed advisable to
pay it rather than run the risk of
litigation.
Aid. Pattullo did not think thai
there was any danger of litigation.
The recommendation carried-.
With respect to the Empire ac-
conni, Aid. Patullo said he felt that
the amount was excessive. He did
nol believe that the full amount
should be paid. Private citizens
had contributed to assist in paying
expenses preliminary to incorporation. The Empire, that always represented itself as standing for the
people, might well have done something along that line also, but instead  was found "soaking the city."
Aid. Kirkpatrick said that onlk
ab.uit ?;•() was in dispute. All the
rest, of iho items had passed. It
being only $57 it was felt that the
city was morally bound io pay
them as they had been contracted
for.
Aid. Pattullo said that when the
Items which the old committee had
cut off were left out it was It-It that
the Bmple was being well paid for
all.
Aid. Smith called attention to the
fail that the private persons ordering the advertisements might be
held responsible.
Aid. Pattullo thought there would
be no  claim against:  these.
The item passed.
With respect to Ihe claim of Williams ami Malison, for $406, from
anuaiy 20 to the end of February,
Aid. Ililtlilt-li thought that the municipal clauses act gave power to
dismiss a civic employee without
notice. He did not think the solicitor's had a claim for even the latter part of January from the 20th
to the end.
The matter was referred back to
tha finance committee in order to
allow that body to consult a solicitor.
FINANCES OF THE PROVINCE ARE IN
AN EXCEEDINGLY HEALTHY CONDITION
Budget Speech of Hon. Price Ellison Shows That Entire Debt Could be Wided Out—Commission Nay be Appointed
to Go Into the Whole Question of the Incidence of Taxation With a View to General Adjustments
and Lowering of the Scale—Industries of the Province Produced Last Year
Over One Hundred Million Dollars Worth.
(Special to The Journal)
VICTORIA, Feb. 14.—The budget
was presented by Hon. Price Ellison, Minister of Finance, In the Legislature yesterday. The minister
announced that the liquid assets of
the province would be sufficient
within the year to wipe out the entire funded debt of the province,
which at the close of the last fiscal
year stood at $8,616,800, which was
decreased by $238,867 from the last
previous yaer.
At the same time as provision was
being made by means of sinking
fund for the redemption of the debt
in due course, the minister does not
consider it, good policy to buy back
tbe outstanding  debentures.
The surplus for the fiscal year
ending March, 11)10, the minister
placed at. $2,r>00,000. The surplus
for the current twelve months cannot be estimated, but the minster ex
pects it will be quite as large as last
year's. The government has upon
deposit In various chartered banks
and bearing interest, no less than
$7,500,000.
Hon. Mr. Ellison places the value
of productions of the representative
industries of the Province during
the past year at $100,742,000, tlivitl-
ed rQughly as follows:
Manufacturers   ... .$36,000,000
.Mining 26(183,605
Timber      I7,16o;ooo
Agriculture   . .    . .   $14,899,000
x isherles         8,000,000
Special announcements contained
in the budget speech included mention of the fact that It is the intention of the minister to recommend
the appointment of a commission
to go thoroughly into the entire
question of the Incidence of taxation
in British Columbia, with a view to
a general readjustment and lowering of the scale.
THE COAL QUESTION
CORRECTING MISTAKES
Aid.   Pattullo   Makes   His   Weekly
Statement   Relative1  to
Empire
At this week's council meeting
Aid. Pattullo, as usual, had a question to bring up as a matter of privilege relative to statements published
by the Empire. He objected to the
statement that 133 men were employed by the engineering department just before election. That
statement was false. He had looked
the record up and found that on
January 1 there were none employed. He gave figures for the
following days, which showed 9, 10,
16, 21, 39 and on January 12, election day, 42 employed. On January 13, there were 44.
Aid. Newton explained that the
statement of the city engineer that
133 were employed would have justified him in coming to the conclusion he did.
Aid. Hllditch said if he wanted to
be too sensitive, he might show that
these objectionable statements were
not confined to the Empire. The
Optimist had referred to himself,
Aid. Hllditch, coming near to malfeasance of office. He did not care
himself what was said, but It might
create a bad impression outside.
A drunk In the police court this
morning was fined $6 and costs and
for breaking a window was assessed
an additional fine of  $10.
Aid.   Clayton   Moves   in   Direction of
Awakening Interest
In it.
lie   Proposes   to   Have   Question  of
Acquiring Claims Looked
info
Aid. Clayton Introduced a resolution at last evening's council in favor of the city securing by purchase,
or by-staking, two or more coal
claims as a means of reducing the
cost of coal in the city.
In support of his motion he said
he felt it was necessary to secure a
coal area. As to the working of it
this might be left over tor the meantime. The question of working it
was something that he thought
could be left over until more fully
looked Into. His main object was
to do something which might lead
to an investigation inlo the coal situation here
Aid. Newton felt that $11 a ton
for coal here was very high. He
thought the council niig.it well look
into this and see if any relief could
lie got. He did not wish to reflect
upon the local coal merchants at all.
Aid. Pattullo did not think the
city had the power to go into this.
It might affect the credit of the city
to propose to go into a speculative
enterprise. He would be agreeable
to have a committee go into teh
question.
Aid. Hilditch agreed with the motion. It did nol go far enough, however. He was led to believe that articles other than coal were too high.
He did not believe the advances were
going into the pockets of the local
merchants. He thought the whole
question   should   be  gone   Into.
Aid. Morrissey thought it would
cost little to stake these coal claims.
These would become very valuable.
Aid. Claj'ton's resolution was finally altered to allow of an investigation into the question, and car-
ried.
TIII-.Ali;
LICENSES
Local  Playhouses Ask  for a  Reduction  in  the  Fees
Paid
The local theatres have asked the
council for a reduction in the license
fees paid. It was pointed out that
these places were the only amusement houses in the city and the fee
teemed  too high.
Aid. Hilditch said that it seemed
to him that the licensesh were too
high.
Aid. Newton wanted the clerk to
communicate with Vancouver in order to get the licenses on the theatres in line with this. A fee of
J200 seemed too high.
The motion carried.
REFUSE  DAMAGES
City Council  Will   Not  Make  Award
in Claim for Injuries by Falling off  Sidewalk ■
YOUNG LIBERAL CLUB
Organization    Formed    Among    the
Younger Element of the Party
in  the City
The Young Liberals of Prince Rupert have formed an association and
elected the first officers. The meeting for the purpose was held In the
Knights of Pythias hall on Friday
evening when speeches were made
by G. R. Naden, J. S. Cowper, Dr.
Kergin, Aid. Pattullo, M. P. Mc-
Caffery, H. B. Campbell, A. W. Mi-
Lean, W. H. Montgomery and E. H.
Mortimer.
The officers elected were:
Hon.  President—Dr.  Kergin.
Hon. Vice-President—F.  Stork.
President—Dr. W. S. Hall.
Vice-President—F.   D.|   Keeley.
Second Vice-President—T. H. Ar-
neil.
Secretary and Treasurer—E. H.
Kearns.
The following members were then
elected to the executive — Messrs.
H. B. Campbell, J. S. Cowper, C. L.
Munroe, M. P. McCaffery, F. A. Ellis, W. H. Montgomery, E. H. Mortimer and Tony Christian.
On the report of C. V. Bennett,
acting city solicitor, the claim of
Mr. Donaldson for damages as a result of falling off the sidewalk is to
be refused. Mr. Bennett advised
that in his opinion the man had no
good  claim.
The case of Mr. Olson, who fell
into the sewer ditch in front of .1. A.
Klrkpatrick's store, was referred to
the streets committee last night.
L. W. Patmore, representing Mr. Olson, put in a claim for $700.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that the
Provincial Government carried out
the sewer work. He also said that
he felt that with the work now in
progress in the city on its streets
pedestrians should be careful. They
could not expect that the city could
provide safeguards to ensure no
accidents if people were not especially cautious. He had been In
danger several times but it was due
to his own carelessness.
"To carelessness alone?" asked
Aid. Pattullo, and the whole council
became reminiscent and laughed.

SKIDEGATE WIRELESS
BILL FINDS  FAVOR
House of Representatives at Washington
Agreeable to Reciprocity
Agreement.
Test Vote Shows That  It Is Favor-
ably Looked  I'pon by
the Members
(Special to The Journal)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14.—A test
vote In the House of Representatives
shows a majority in favor of the reciprocity agreement. The vote was
taken on Representative McCall's
motion to go into committee on the
bill, which tarried by  196 to 121.
Col. Davis, the city engineer, has
been granted permission to go south
to Vancouver and Victoria in order
to inspect certain works which have
been carried out there and which it
is felt will be of advantage to the
city of Prince Rupert to have him
examine into. The suggestion was
made by Mayor Manson early In the
year that the engineer should make
this trip, particularly to study the
question of conducting water pipes
across the waterways such as was
experienced in Vancouver. Col. Davis finds the present the most convenient time to go.
C. M. Melntyre Has Gone to Queen
Charlottes to Open Ihe New
Station
C. M. Melntyre, of the Dominion
Wireless service, was ni the city this
week after a trip south. He left on
Monday by the steamer Amur for
the Queen Charlotte Islands where
he will take steps to have the new
station at Lone Tree Hill, near
Skidegate.
Tlie station will be known as the
Skidegate station and will be in
working order at once. Mr. Melntyre will remain for a little time
until he finds the plant is all in
good order and then it will be left
to the permanent operator who will
arrive from the south.
Speaking of the wireless service,
Mr. Melntyre says that the stations
are open to do commercial business
at the same rate as the Dominion
wire.
With the opening up of the Skidegate station a very complete chain
has been established to serve the
ends of the shipping trade.

TO FORCE VETO BILL
Premier Asquith Will Introduce
a Measure Next
Monday.
Such
The Prince Rupert General Hospital will soon be open to receive
patients. Tlie contractors have not
quite completed their work hut II
is being hurried up and witli the
heating apparatus in place, tlie walls
ne becoming well dried out. The
matron, Miss McTavish, Is on duty
soiling the interior arrangements all
in  readiness.
The public wards will be fitted
tin at once followed quickiy by the
furnishing of the private rooms.
Tlie .Masonic Lodge has made choice
of its ward and ihe Daughters of
the Empire have likewise selected a
room to be fitted up by them. Both
societies will lose no time now in
furnishing the apartments so that
they may be available in case of
need.
The medical men of the city are
anxious to see the hospital opened
and it is reported to those in authority that there are many cases awaiting the opening lo go in.
The hospital is but the beginning
of what will be in time an institution wliere the very uest of medical
attention can be given. Prince Rupert has among its medical men specialists and general practitioners
that do not take a second place to
any on the coast. Witli the facilities afforded in the hospital for
treating complicated cases, the General Hospital sought to become a
blessing to the whole of northern
British Columbia and Alaska, wliere
any kind of special surgical work
can be undertaken.
As far as the hospital goes it is
acknowledged to be a most comfortable one. It will serve only a
short time, it is felt, when additions
will  have   to   be  made   to   it.
HACK TO HUDSON'S BAY
Compiling List of New Peers to Ensure Legislation in Case
of Trouble
(Special to The Journal)
LONDON,   Feb.   14.—Premier  Asquith   has  announced   in   the  Commons that he will introduce the government's  veto  bill next  Monday.
As an evidence of the government's intention to force the maes-
ure through, J. W. McCulland, the
Scottish Liberal whip, staled In a
speech in Edinburg that he was busy
compiling a list of Ilie men who
would accept Peerage with the view
of passing the velo bill in the upper
chamber in the event of the Conservative peers proving recalcitrant.
FEAR  TROUBLE  IN  CHINA     •
Interest wil lbe taken In the announcement that Captain Bucey, one
of the most capable and popular river captains in the Northwest, who
has disposed of his interest in the
Inlander, which be commanded lasl
season, will next season return to
the service of the Hudson's Bay
Company, as captain of the Port
Simpson, says tlie Omineca Herald.
Captain Gardner, who earned the
good will and confidence of passengers and shippers alike as com-
. mantler of the Hazelton, will agin
have charge of that reliable craft.
and may be expected to maintain Ills
reputation as a thoroughly competent skipper.
No announcement has as yel been
made as to the successor of Captain
Bucey on the Inlander.
The subject of the city hall site
and the need for early action came
before the city council last evening.
Aid. Hilditch introduced it, referring
to the need of some action being
taken to decide the matter. If the
.Market Place site was to be decided
upon it would be avisable to have
Mayor Manson take action while in
the  capital.
Aid. Newton said that under no
consideration would he be agreeable
lo passing upon a site until the
question was submitted to tlie people  lo vote upon.
Aid. Hilditch said he agreed with
Aid .Newton. If Aid. Newton would
suggest a single site he would be
agreeable to having it submitted to
the people, li was not for the council to sit back and do nothing. Ho
was not wedded to any site. He
wanted something done towards getting a city hall, however, as it was
absolutely necessary.

GOT( II  STYLE
Champion Frank Gotch must be
given credit for revolutionizing the
wrestling game. Before Gotch's
time, speed and avoiding punishment were considered secondary
matters.
About the time Gotch was coming
into the wrestling title the American
mat artists were refusing to meet
the extremely heavy men being imported, notably the Turks, who began to flood the country after Yous-
suff cleaned up. Wrestling was conducted pretty much along lines of
strength ami weigh! al that time,
and speed was not regarded as much
or ;i necessity. Punishment was understood lo some exit-ill, hut it was
not scientifically applied, and when
there was much of it it was generally because there was a lot, of foul
work. Wearing a man down consisted mainly in getting him on the
mat and laying around on him so as
to tire him out by sheer weight.
Gotch changed this almost completely. He was about the same as
other wrestlers up to about the time
he had to meet Hackenschmidt, and
the indications are that, he changed
his plans mainly for this bout, as lie
feared the Russian's great size and
strength. As a result Gotch spent
most of his time while training,
working out a system whereby he
keep from being put on the mat, and
at the same time worry and wear
down  his opponent.
How successful he was, was shown
when he had his opponent beaten
before ever the two went to the mat.
Throwing him when finally Gotch
concluded it was time to risk grappling with tlie Russian was a mere
matter of form, as Hackenschmidt
was too weak then to defend himself. Ever since, Gotch has resorted
to the same tactics when he is
against an opponent who is heavier
and stronger than he is.
AVIATION   CENTRE
JEFF   RETIRES
James J. Jeffries, former heavyweight champion of the world,
dragged from retirement as the
"white hope," and beaten by Jack
Johnson, at Reno, has been asked
by thousands of persons whether he
will light again. Weary of tlie
question, Jeffries has decided to
make the following single answer
through the United Press. He says
11  is tlie last.
"I intend what is written here
shall be an ultimatum, the tenor of
which cannot be misinterpreted. It
is my hope that the public at large
will consider this my final word on
a subject, that has caused me enormous personal inconvenience. I refer to the question of whether I
shall ever enter the ring again.
I shall not attempt to say how-
many times I have answered that
query during Ihe last six months.
Hardly a day has gone by without
the question being put to me. Day
after day 1 have answered it seriously and squarely. I have stated that
I never shall enter another ring.
But friends and the public have refused to accept my word. At least,
I must believe they have, in view
of the fact that after answering the
question, 1 have in Ihe next hour,
been asked exactly the same question.
It has come to the point where I
and the members of my household
respond to the door bell ring with
the reply to the question on our lips.
If some one were to test patience
by asking you a certain question
say, for instance "how old are you?"
day in and day out, how long do
you think you could go to the door
or the telephone, head the question
asked anil answer ii without losing
your temper? For half a year, do
you   think?
II would 1) edil'I'lt-iili to explain
what it is lo go through such an ex-
perlence, In my ease, instead of one
person putting ihe question each
day, the query has come from Innumerable sources. What I want to
say is that while the question of
whether 1 ever would tight another
ring battle has been asked of hundreds of persons upon hundreds of
different occasions, I alone have
been compelled to listen to each Inquirer .separately, hear the same
metaphorous words, asked the same
question that 1 have answered
countless times. This is the last
answer 1 will over make to that
question:
Under no circumstances shall I
ever again participate in a public
prize ring contest. I have retired
from the ring for all time.
This is the decision I made
months ago. It is a decision I shall
adhere to.
JAMES J. JEFFRIES.
England this year is to be the
world's aviation centre. From Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Belgium, Holland and America the most
noted fliers are expected in England
early in the summer, to take part
in the two great competitions, respectively for the Gordon Bennett
cup and the 1,000 mile race known
as the "Circuit of Britain."
Never, it my be said at once and
without exaggeration, has it been
possible for any one country to muster such a concourse of flying men
as will be seen in London a few
months hence. The reason is not far
to seek. The Gordon Bennett cup,
now held by a British flier, Mr. Gra-
haine White, is the most envied trophy In aviation, while tlie prize money which is offered by the "Daily
Mail" for the great cross-country
flight will be worth at least $50,-
000.
It has been computed that a sum
of not less than $1,000,000 was
awarded last year to the successful
competitors in tlie long series of flying tournaments that opened in January at Los Angeles and terminated
last week with the Mlchelin Cup
race.
The -coming aviation season promises to yield as rich a harvest to the
exponents of the new science. Prizes
amounting-to $70,000 are offered by
the Journal of Paris for a flying
race from the French capital to Berlin, Brussels, London and back to
Paris, the distance to be covered being roughly, 1,500 miles. The date
provisionally set for the contest to
open is June 4. Other competitions
for the year comprise:
The Hearst prize, $60,000, for a
flight across the Atlantic , 5.
flight across America from the At-
iahtlc to the Pacific, or In the reverse direction. The flight must be
accomplished before the tenth of
October next, and within thirty
consecutive days by any route which
includes Chicago. Any number of
stops are allowed.
The Southern France Circuit for
$40,000, taking in France, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseilles, Lyons
and Dijon.
The Rome to Turin cross-country
flight ,to be held from June 12 to
June IS.
ihe Berlin to Hanover circuit and
tlie Frieburg to Wiesbaden circuit,
via Strasburg, Carlsruhe, Manne-
heim and Frankfort. Both these
competitions are open to German
aviators exclusively.
Prizes are also offered for flights
from Liverpool to Manchester and
from London to Newcastle and finally there will be the autumn military selection trials of new aeroplanes in France, for which the
French government recently voted a
credit of $200,000. This last competition is open to the builders and
designers of all nations, the only restriction being that the flying machines entered for the trials must be
constructed  in France.
CORONATION  FIGHT
Hugh Mcintosh, the Australian
who makes all other fight promoters
turn green with envy and all fight
chilis forget their traditions and re-
ise rules and regulations, hopes to
bring off the fight for the championship of tlie world in London,
England, during the week of the
King's coronation. Hugh, everybody talks familiarly about the genial Cornstalk after once meeting
him, favors the sporting editor with
a budget of Information about his
plans and the way in which he induces the London fight fans to visit
Olyinpia.
"My lease of the Olympia annex
expires on February 24," he writes,
"and I am endeavoring to secure another big building. Failing in this
I shall return to Australia bringing
with me some of the best English
boxers and shall again hold contests
at the Sydney stadium. 1 shall return to England In lime for the coronation week when 1 hope to bring
off the world's championship
heavyweight contest.
"On February 1, we have Porky
I'iynn of America matched with
Jack Burns of California. Flynn
will be seconded by Sam Langford,"
Is it any wonder that Hugh Mcintosh commands the confidence of
the public? The rush for seals for
the Wells-Moir contest was so great
that he could have sold all the lower
priced seats for two or three times
the advertised prices and did not
do it.
"We stuck to our guns and sold
our half-crown and five-shilling
seats and refused half guineas by
the hundreds—1 might say by the
thousands."

COMPULSORY    VACCINATION
BIG SEASON'S WORK
Hazelton District  Will  See a Lot o
Mining Done This
Summer.
Order   Is   Being   Enforced   in   Order
lo Sump Out  Dread Disease In
Fraser Valley
In compliance with the Provincial
Government's order, It is compulsory that all persons should be vac-
'inatcd al once unless they have
been so treated within the past seven years. The order which has gone
forth  is as follows:
"Every resident of this province
shall forthwith be vaccinated or
produce to the medical health officer of "the district or municipality
wliere be or she resides a certificate
or proof of successful vaccination
within the preceding seven years, or
i certificate that such person is at
present insusceptible of vaccinal ion
or a certificate of physical unfitness
for vaccination. Such certificate
shall be from a duly qualified practitioner."
Dr. Underbill and Dr. Fagan, the
provincial health officer, are being
strongly supported in their endeavors to stamp out the smallpox epidemic now prevailing In a mild degree In the Fraser Valley.
Low Estimate on Properties Already
Being  Worked  Is Made by
Local   Paper
Every one at all conversant with
the mining situation is prepared to
see a great rush to"the mines about
Hazelton and other interior points
in the spring. The Omineca Herald
puts the sum likely to be spent at
once at $175,000. This, it is reasonable to suppose Is a very low estimate for expenditures not now
thought of, will be made this spring
and summer, as development proceeds.
Says the Herald:
Miing development for the present
year will be carried on on a much
larger scale than ever before. Something of (he plans of the companies,
syndicates and individuals operating
in this camp is known and it Is already known waz cmf cm c
ready apparent that he total amount
of money to be spent within the next
eleven months will be in excess of
$175,000. Not alone have the holders of mining property and owners
of options made declarations to,this
effect, but the terms of the agreements in almost every case will compel a large amount of money to be
spent during next summer and winter as the time Is short before
heavy payments  become due.
From the opening of spring
twenty men will be at work on the
Brie; plans for the Silver Cup involve the expenditure of a larger
amount of money than on any other
properly in the camp. Following
the formal ion of a stock company a
vigorous campaign will he commenced on the Sunrise group, and
the force al ihe Lead King will, according to F, A. Brown, the manager, he increased about Ihe first of
April.
Work on the iron Mask group on
Four Mile will be started as soon in
the spring as supplies can be obtained and on the Dyer-Stephenson
group where a small force is now at
work, there will be a big crew opening up the claims at different points
as the remainder of iie purchase
price is duo in October and is in excess of $85,000.
On Glen .Mountain, where George
Mtilean has a crew at work on the
clalnis located by himself and partners, nad under bond for sums aggregating $86,000, the gang will bo
increased early in the spring as it
is understood to be the intention
of the purchasers to commence shipping ore as soon as the railway line
is able to handle It.
On Rocher de Boule mountain the
bondholders will be at work as soon
as it is possible to reach the claims.
Ther are assurances that a trail will
be built up Juniper creek and the
Kitseguecla river from the Skeena to
these claims so that supplies can be
easily laid down.
The advisability of putting machinery plants on two properties is
being considered but no definite decision has as yet been reached. A
wagon road will have to be built before machinery can be taken to the
Silver Cup, which will take a good
part- of the summer.
It is admitted that the country
within a radius of ten miles of Hazelton is by no means prospected.
The lower slopes of the mountains
are covered with loose rock, earth
and in many places with a thick carpet of moss. Further discoveries of
good property are confidently looked
for this year. The ready sale which
good mining property in this vicinity has found In the past, and the
good prices obtained, combined to
hold a larger number of the prospectors here for the winter than
ever before. The snow leaves the
lower hills early in April and it
will be a matter for surprise if new
veins are not found and considerable
money spent in developing them before the summer is over.
In estimating the amount that will
be spent at $175,000 no account has
been taken of any possible new discoveries and without any such the
end of the year is likely ,o see this
figure exceeded than it is to be an
overestimate.

KING WINNING FAVOR
Aids Witli His Counsel—Court Dress
Has Been Done Away With
at Buckingham
  I
King George, as he is settling to
work, is making a strong impression
on all who conic in contact with him.
He takes the greatest care to become
thoroughly informed on all matters
submitted lo him and he is possessed
of tbe ability to waste no time on
details.
The King never hurries his judgment, to which in ret-nt years King
Edward often referred, "What
docs George think?" was the frequent remark of Edward.
King George is free from affectation. When lie does not understand an issue, he keeps on asking
pertinent questions until he is satisfied. Once decided it is difficult to
Induce him to change his mind, but
he Is so careful that his judgment
is accurate. He Is just and shows
exceptional consideration to ail
about him.
Unlike his father, he likes to be
left alone to read. He Is a great
render of serious books ;.nd is not
much addicted to fiction. He Is domestic and fond of early hours, consequently those in honorary attendance upon him find their work
light, whereas his secretaries are
kept  extremely  busy.
The King intends to give a number of dinners to men only at Buck
ingham Palace in February. This Is
a form of hospitality he particularly
enjoys. The dinners will be informal, as is compatible with his position, for he has a truly naval dislike
to unnecessary ceremony.
King Edward delighted in knee
breeches for evening wear, but King
George generally dispenses with these
and allows his friends to arrive
dressed as they would for an ordinary dinner. George is as particular
as his father was as to what he
eats, but he does not lay such stress
on short meals. He smokes a good
deal, but arinks practically nothing.
On ceremonial occasions lie takes a
glass of champagne and more rarely
sips an after dinner glass of port
though he always has it poured out,
in order not to render uncomfortable any guest who might like to
sample the famous royal wine.
The King and Queen have gone
personally through the whole list of
court invitations and struck out but
sixty names. Several were those of
individuals whose faces were familiar at Buckingham  Palace.
NEW  COAL  COMPANY
Company   Seeks   Incorporation   and
Power to Own Coal Mines and
Auxiliary  Railways
Tlie Canadian Gazette contains a
notice that an application will be
made at the present session of Parliament to incorporate as company
under the name of the Mountain
Coal & Colonization Co. Ltd., with
power to own and operate coal
mines, mining properties generally,
and for this purpose to construct
and operate a railway from a point
on the branch line ot the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, now under
construction !o the Yellowhead Pass
Coal Company's lands, to a point in
Township 46, Range 23 west, to the
Fifth Meridian, also with power to
construct, branch lines from the last
mentioned line of the proposed company to the various coal areas In
the vicinity  of  the  line.
FOR Till: GOOD IlOl'SEWIFE
The yolks of eggs will not turn
dark when hard boiled If they are
put In boiling water rather than cold
at first. Half an hour is not too
long to cook them to acceptable
hardness.
Keep bedrooms sweet by admitting plenty of fresh air. Avoid woolen curtains, and above all else, an
old carpet. Nothing is more likely
to give a close smell to a bedroom.
When two glass tumblers or dishes stick together so that there Is
danger of breaking In getting them
apait, put cold water in the Inner
one and hold the outer one in warm
water, and they will separate at
once. ,

At its second meeting of the year,
the Nelson city council reached a
decision to sewer a portion of the
upper part of the city this year, and
make provision to commence the
work immediately, the estimated
cost of this year's work being $5,-
200. On the recommendation of R.
A. Brown, city electrician, approved
by the fire, water and light committee, power rates were given a gentle
boost, which, however leaves them
far below other British Columbia
cities.
The fire, water and light committee's report regarding power rates
follows:
"That Mr. Brown's recommendations witli reference to power rates
as contained in bis annual report be
adopted, that is that power rates by
metre measurement shall be as follows: First 100 kw. hours, 5 cents
per kw. hour; next 200 kw. hours
4 cents per kw. hour; next 400 kw.
hours, 3 cents per kw. hour; and
all over 700 kw. hours, 2 cents per
kw. hour; and that a minimum
charge of $2 per month per horsepower be made for each horsepower connected, and that electricity
for heating purposes lie charged at
power rates."
Replying to an inquiry by Aid.
Stark ,Mr. Brown explained the sliding scale of both the light rates and
the power rates. The city, he stated,
bad actually been selling power for
less than half what it took to generate it.
Mayor Selous stated that when the
first power rates were made, the
council of that day obtained rates
from all over the province, anil that
Nelson rates as then made were far
lower than those anywhere else.
Under Ihe existing rales, in addition
to there being no profit, tlie power
revenue tlitl not pay the interest and
meet the depreciation on Ihe transformers that had to be installed. At
least 20 per cent of the transformers should  be  allowed  lor.
The recommendation was unanimously adopted.
The new power rales will not go
into effecl of course, until pin
through in a bylaw.

THE  NEW  EVANGEL
The editor of Ihe Optimist has apparently cut out a great work
for himself. He is to be a
light in Ihe darkness. Speaking
at the Young Liberal gathering, he
told his audience thai Liberalism
had done one great thing; it had
put the vote Into the hand of every
man. li had now lo go on and
teach all men to use their votes intelligently.
Now, this is most complimentary.
In its essence it means that the vote
is in the hands of men who do not
know iiow to use it. That the affairs of the country are being administered on Ihe voice of unintelligent men who do not know their
duties to the country and must
await tlie enlightening process which
is to come from the editor of the
Optimist and those who think with
him.
'For our part if we believed in
such a doctrine we would advocate
the disfranchising of those whom we
believed were not qualified to cast
an intelligent vote. Under our system of government, the franchise is
looked upon as a privilege and not
as a right. We are able to say that
a Mongolian, although a naturalized
British subject, shall not have a
vote and the courts uphold the contention on the very ground that the
right to vote is not an inherent right
with citizenship.
The doctrine which the editor of
the Optimist is preaching is an insult to a great body of the electorate. Wnile there must of necessity
be a certain number who will under
any enfranchising act be open to
criticism on the score of not being
qualified lo vote as intelligently as
could be wished for, these are but
isolated instances. The most of
voters can scarcely come under the
charge of being unintelligent enough
noi to know how to cast their ballots according to their way of thinking.
We are inclined to think that the
leader of the new evangel is in
reality inclined to believe that only
those who think as he thinks are
intelligent. The way in which lie
accepted the defeat of his particular
candidates al. the last municipal
election would lead one to such an
impression. After that election instead of submitting to the expressed
wish of tlie people the Optimist contended that he minority was right
which it must be admitted is consistent with this new doctrine now
put forth that the voters are too
unintelligent to properly exercise the
franchise.
The whole question simmers down
to a most narrow view being taken.
It is only-those who think with the
editor of the Optimist that are right.
It is only they who are intelligent.
All -others must be brought up lo
that standard although .n the meantime being allowed to exercise their
own sweet will in administering the
affairs of tlie country.
And t.iis is all preached in the
name   of   Liberalism.
smooth, when another group of witnesses came along and testified that
they had purchased fraudulent passports in Hong Kong from a brother
of the Kelly-Templeman appointed
Interpreter, and that the interpreter
was there at he dock at Arancouver
to see them through on these certificates and welcome them to Canada.
The commission is now getting
pretty close to the point, and it commences to look as though the honest
Liberals on the coast who have always regarded with horror the desecration of their party by a ring of
grafters, will at last be able to shake
them loose and get rid of the pernicious influence which has cost Liberalism the whole province of British Columbia.
In tbe meantime, Bob Kelly is
taking no chances with a commission that is liable to fly open at any
time and expose the inner workings
ni' lis machine, lie is automobiling
in California.
RECIPROCITY  IN  FISH
George R. Naden is reported to
have laid stress at the Young Liberal
gathering a few evenings ago upon
the advantages which would come to
Prince Rupert as the fish centre of
the coast from the reciprocity agreement as it affects that industry.
Now, we fail to see exactly where
the great benefits are to come In.
Owing to its proximity to the hali
but banks, Prince Rupert must become the great centre for the packing of that fish and the preparation
of it for shipping in cold storage.
At the present time the New England Fish Company is exempt from
duties which have given it an advantage in carrying on its business.
Under arrangement with tlie Dominion government, the New England
Fish Company's steamers which are
American bottoms are allowed to
take fish in what are recognized as
open waters including Hecate
Straits, land them in Vancouver to
be treated and then shipped in bond
to the United States. The Canadian
Government does not collect duty
from these vessels for landing the
fish in Vancouver, the expenditure
of money in the Canadian city having been recognized as sufficient return without the duty being charged.
The New England Company on the
other hand, is not obliged to carry
the fish the 100 or more miles to
Seattle or any other United States
port before curing.
Now, how is a benefit to come
from the reciprocity agreement in
such a case'.' The Canadlun Fish
and Cold ■ Storage Company which is
erecting large works here will In
the natural order of things secure
similar privileges. This is to be
expected surely when the local concern Is subsidized by the Dominion
Government.
If the local company desires to
cater to the trade of the United
States why should not American hot.
toms be used under arrangement for
that end of the trade just as tho
New England Fish Company today
employs also some Canadian bottoms so that in theory the fish from
the Canadian bottoms go to the Canadian consumers and those from
the American bottoms go to tho
United States cities?'
We fail to see where any very
decided advantage is to come under
the proposed agreement when the
government, is allowing an arrangement to prevail which overcomes the
necessity for a United States fishing
company carrying its take to the
other side to be treated.
Till:   CHINESE   COMMISSION
Royal commissions, as a general
rule, are very convenient mechanisms for spreading a nice coal of
knlsomlne. Down in Vancouver,
however, they have a royal commission which got away, says ihe Capital   published in Edmonton,
l-'or years pasl a ring of grafters
on ihe roast have been working the
Chinese smuggling game, at huge
profit io themselves and great injury lo thi- Liberal party. Finally
tiring of such proceedings,    certain
m hers   of   Ihe   I iieral   party,   as-
sish-tl by ihe Trades anil Labor
Council, decided to tear the rover off
and show things up as they were. A
commission was appointed, anil subsequent developments Indicated that
there had been something started,
The inquiry opened v. itli an explosion which involved Senator Tem-
pleman, the self-appointed dictator
of the pally, Bob Kelly, Ihe czar of
the Vancouver wing, and many other
Liberals  for  revenue  only.
After tlie first explosion the commission settled down to a very complacent course, in which the evidence was very reassuring, while all
the dangerous witnesses conveniently forgot all they ever knew and
everthing  was commencing  to look

Brief outlines of the new insurance bill at Victoria, indicate that
the government Is about to follow
quite closely the recommendations
of the commission that went into
tlie subject. The hill is sure lo cause
considerable uproar among the corporations affected. Such class of
bills always does that, In the end
when all its features are fully understood it is io In- expected thai
these corporations will settle down
and  do business as  in  tlie past.
A wrong Impression is sought to
be conveyed locally with respect to
the measure and the circumstances
leading up to its Introduction. The
demand for a modification in the
law came not only from tlie users
of insurance but from what are
known as ihe old line companies,
who objected to vast concerns like
Lloyd's tlia^ wrote up all kinds of
insurance without maintaining a
representative and which wore,
therefore, not subjected io the taxes
levied upon the ordinary insurance
companies. Taking Insurance at a
lower rale, I hey did an immense
business while tlie representatives
of the regular companies were paying for offices and agents and paying licenses to the various municipalities where business was done.
The government was urged to bring
in legislation to cover the case for

the local writers of insurance need
have no concern that the case was
not well presented.
The commission reached Its decisions months ago and the finding
was made public. Its conclusions
have been followed quite closely in
the present bill and we feel sure
no injustice is to be worked upon
any one. As far as the companies
being subjected to an exorbitant tax
is concerned it will be found, we
believe, judging from the short despatches so far received, that the
companies will get off lighter than
formerly. They will not. require to
take out a license to do business in
every municipality in the province,
paying considerable fees in each
case. As far as the "mail order"
proposition is concerned, we feel
satisfied the government has taken
provisions to place companies doing
that kind of business on a footing of
equality with the others. Their customers will require to pay a two
per cent rate to the government to
compensate for the tax evaded by
them through having no office in
the province.
There will probably be weaknesses in the bill to he righted as Is
generally the case, but this bill the
public can rest assured of had very
careful consideration and Is drawn
up in the interests of the public in
an effort to avoid companies working any injustice upon  the insured.
parent ly inclined to go a little slowly
with respect, to Stewart. There is
no assurance just yet thai that place
is to support a great population. To
burden it with all the duties of self-
government might lead to a lot of
trouble especially in view of the fact
that the mines are, not right at Stewart for the most part, but In many
cases miles away. The miners will
live at the different mine centres
and the population of Stewart may
be rather small.
From the standpoint of the citizens themselves we believe they
have much to gain by delaying incorporation until the future of the
place is assured. According to the
news,of well informed mining men
more activity will be manifested in
the interior along the Skeena and
its tributareis this season than will
be about Stewart.

DISTRICT
A court of revision and appeal
under the provisions of the "Assessment Act" and "Public Schools Act"
for the Prince Rupert Assessment
District for the year 1911, will be
held at the Court House, Prince Rupert, on Tuesday, the 28th day of
February, 1911 at the hour of 3
o'clock In the afternoon.
Dated at Prince Rupert, B. C'.,
Feb. 7th, 1911.
A.   CARSS,
Judge of the Court of Revision
and Appeal.
Dr. Kergin, speaking at tlie Young
Liberal gathering In this city, expressed himself as being struck by
the paucity of legislation enacted in
the .Provincial Parliament this session. Having In mind the years
which Dr. Kergin put in as a member of the legislature and his record
there, we must acknowledge that he
ought to he qualified to know when
little Is being done. Certainly the
doctor never loaded the records of
the House or the statutes of the
Province.
STEWART'S  INCORPORATION
Awaiting further details of tlie
reasons that led to the refusal of the
Provincial Government to. grant incorporation to Stewart we cannot be
in a position to defend or attack the
government on its attitude. The bare
announcement lias been received and
a delegation from Stewart has gone
south to again urge action.
In refusing to grant Incorporation
the. Government is possibly well
aware of facts that fully warrant
the course taken. In British Columbia, mining camps have suddenly
sprung up and as suddenly faded
away. In some instances the Legislature has been put to considerable
trouble devising ways and means of
assisting in overcoming difficulties
created by premature Incorporation
of places.    The Government, la- ap-
,\n old-fashioned bean supper will

SOLVE MYSTERY
NELSON—Papers discovered on
the body of a dead man found on
the west shore of lower Arrow Lake,
north of Ranata, have proved that
it is the corpse of William Bull, a
commercial traveller, who has been
missing since October, and for whom
Calgary relatives have been searching. The body was discovered by a
trapper whose dog drew attention
to a mound of snow under which
the corpse lay. The coat was nearly torn off the body and it is supposed that Bull fell overboard from
an Arrow Lake steamer, which a
punched ticket proves that he
boarded.
PLANS OF GRANIIY
GRAND FORKS'—Granby's new
management is making plans to
operate the property this year
to the full capacity of Its
smelting plant. It is expected
that this will result in a production
of over 25,000,000 pounds of copper
at a cost of not over 10% and possibly under 10 cents a pound. This
will give the company net earnings
of $4.50 to $5 per share with copper selling at  13  cents  per pound.
The management has satisfied itself that if the smelter were operated continuously to only half its capacity, as it has been during the
greater portion of last year, the
6,000,000 tons of developed ore In
the property would be exhausted
with little or no profit to the stockholders, due to the fact that the
costs are so much higher when the
output is curtailed. By operating
the plant to full capacity the ore
already developed can be made to
yield a profit of between $3,000,000
and $4,000,000.
ISLAND   RAILWAY
VICTORIA—Contractors M. Car-
lin and Grant Smith & Company
have commenced active work on the
Vancouver Island section of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway
Company. A store and general depot, to form a base of supplies and
a branch camp is now in course of
construction at Peddar Bay. Sixty
men under sub-contractor MacDon-
ald, are in the field in the neighborhood of Esquimalt, From Peddar
Bay, construction will be carried on
in both directions, while other camps
will be established along the route.
The contractors are willing to sublet the contract tor the second
twenty miles of the railroad but as
there is three feet of snow on the
route running from Sooke to Shawn-
igan Lake, construction will be impossible there for some time. Sixteen sub-contractors have been over
the second twenty miles and are
ready to tender The sub-contractors
will not only clear the right of way
also complete the construction work.

ROYAL OBSERVATORY
VICTORIA—A committee of the
executive of the Natural History Society of Victoria will Investigate and
bring to the attention' of the Dominion government the claims of Victoria to be nie site of a royal ob-
servatry was also appointed. It appeared from the paper read by Mr.
F. Napier Denison at the last meeting of the society that Victoria offers exceptional advantages for the
study of astronomy, meteorology
and seismology.
KILLING  WOLVES
VICTORIA—The rapid increase
of timber wolves toward the north
end of Vancouver Island and the
serious inroads that these animals
are making among the deer and
smaller game, has resulted in the
despatch by Game Warden Bryan-
Williams of two experienced hunters and trappers to investigate conditions and adopt the best means
presenting themselves in dealing
with this pest, but which even the
wapiti herds are now threatened.
The increase in the bounty to $15
has not been sufficient to induce the
inauguration of any vigorous or systematic campaign against the wolves
and they now overrun the Island in
the northern  districts.
Sir Gilbert  Parker
Sir Gilbert Parker, Canadian
member of Parliament from Graves-
end, publishes a statement in which
he says with reference to the reciprocity agreement between Canada
and the United States:
"The agreement is a desperately
serious thing and will eventually
mean that the Canadians have lost
their grip on their own independence. Canada's fight for two generations against, American commercial
tyranny was the source of her progress and wealth. It gave her energy,
resources and determinaton; but un-

The city engineer's report in favor
of a 14-inch sewer pipe on Sixth
avenue, petitioned for by W. Angle
and. others, was recommended by the
streets committee at last evening's
council meeting. The cost was put
at $1,490, or S3.22 a frontage foot.
Aid. Clayton introduced a resolution al last evening's council meeting to regulate the making of connections with, the city water pipes,
so that shut off valves would he put
in and the loss of water overcome
to a large extent.
The resolution carried.
With respect to the advertising
for sale of lot S, block 10, section 1,
by David H. Hays, agent for the
G. T. P. Development Company, the
city council last night decided to
communicate with the head office
to see if the lot could not be secured
to the ctiy as a way for the sewer
pipe. Negotiations were on for the
acquiring of the lot for that purpose
and objection was taken by some
of the aldermen to the proposed
auction  sale.
The construction of the G. T. P.
with the consequent facilities for
reaching the great interior of this
nortli country with greater ease,
will lead to the opening up of the
mining wealth far beyond what Is
known as the Hazelton district.
Already the effects are being seen
of the construction work and the
mines of the Omineca are to more
fully be investigated.
Last summer prospectors representing Seattle and local capita]
were in the country in the vicinity
of .Manson Creek where the hydraulic possibilities were investigated. Already the vanguard of this syndicate
has started in, including about
eleven men who will make their way
to the Omineca to be ready for tho
opening of spring.
Those interested have no doubt
of tlie richness of the field and a
district as productive as any yet
found on the continent is expected .o
be developed.

The finance committee of the
city council reported last evening
that the auditor's statgfnent for last
year did not contain enough details.
No fault was found with the statement as such, but for the public
information more details, it was
felt, should be forthcoming in the
report. In order to allow the aldermen to acquaint themselves with the
report it was laid over until the next
