NO EXEMPTION OF
AMERICAN VESSELS
President Wilson It Is Announced
Will Use Every Legitimate Influence to Repeal Objectionable Provision In Panama Canal Act-Will
Make Effort to Amend Measure
Washington, Feb. 5.—President
Wilson has announced that he will
use every legitimate influence at his
disposal to have repealed the provision in the Panama Canal Act exempting American coastwise vessels
from payment of tolls. This is the
clause that was objected to so strenuously by the British, it being held to
be contrary to the treaty rights.
The president has made it clear
that he is unalterably opposed to the
exemption. He has emphasized this
by stating that be will have the provision repealed during the present
session of Congress.
The president's position was asserted to be that the provision of
the Panama Canal Act granting toll
exemption to American coastwise
vessels is in violation of the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty, which proclaims
that the canal shall be free and
open to the vessels of commerce and
war of all nations, "on terms of entire equality," and that "charges on
traffic should be just and equitable."
When the matter was considered
over a week ago three courses were
open to Congress on the subject.
Great Britain, which has persistently opposed the toll exemption
for American ships, has offered to
arbitrate the question as to its being a violation of the llay-Paunce-
fote treaty. The majority in Congress
was disposed to be- opposed to this,
maintaining that the United States
should settle the issue for itself. Another course was to carry into effect
the resolution submitted by Representative Adamson, chairman of the
Interstate and Foreign Relations
Committee, which would suspend for
two years the operation of the provision exempting American ships
from the payment of tolls. Should
this have been adopted, diplomatic
negotiations could have been continued in the meantime. The third
proposal was that Congress should
repeal the free toll provision, recognizing that it was in violation of the
Hay-Pauncefote treaty. Some Democratic senators who voted for free
tolls now are ready to vote for the
repeal.
Speaking in Ottawa a few days
ago, ex-President Taft said in connection with the Panama tolls question:
"We, in the United States, are divided among ourselves as to the
right and wisdom of exempting our
coastwise vessels. Mr. Knox and I
think that under the treaty, when
its history is taken into consideration, we have the right to levy tolls
on foreign shipping. Mr. Choate and
Mr. Root differ from us. Congress,
In my time, thought we bad the
right. Now we shall doubtless have
to arbitrate the matter unless
Congress reverses itself."
HOW THE HIGH COST OF
BUILDING WAS BEATEN
IS NOW BOOSTING      I ENGLISH ACTRESS
PRINCE GEORGE! STOPPED AT BORDER
Included in the high cost of living is the high cost of building; in fact
it is such a factor that parties desinus of living near Newton, Mass.,
found it cheaper to buy a house and move it more than a mile than
to build a new house. The above photograph shows a section of the
house. It was necessary to cut the house into three sections in order to
move it. In moving the bouse it was necessary to go over a high hill;
however, the feat was successfully accomplished, the house was re-assembled and the owner beat the high cost of building, very much to
his satisfaction.

Prince George is making more
money in speculation than any other
town on the American continent,
said F. A. Ellis, official auctioneer
for the Grand Trunk Pacific, in an
interview in Edmonton appearing in
the Daily Capital of that city. Mr.
Ellis was ou his way to Prince
George to deliver several hundred
thousand dollars' worth of agreements of sale on property in Prince
George which he has sold by auction and private sale for the Grand
Trunk Pacific. Inquiries are pouring
in from all parts of the world regarding the new townsite. It is now
a foregone conclusion that Prince
George will in the near future be
one of the most important cities in
Western Canada. Situated in one of
the greatest water divides in 'the
world, it holds the key to 250 miles
(north, east, south and west) of the
most, productive and fertile land in
the Dominion, it is the point, said
Mr, Ellis, where all railways running north from" Vancouver to the
Peace River country and Alaska
will Intersect with the roads running east and west from Alberta to
the coast. That the country is underlaid Willi natural wealth, is the
opinion of practical men, and people
who have watched the development
In the Canadian West for the past
ten years anticipate a faster growth
In Prince George than has been experienced in any other city.
The contract has just been let, he
said, for the construction of _ tne
G.T.P. hotel, which will cost about
1250,000, to be completed .before
1915. It will be built on Third AVt-
s,mie near George Street. The cjfrmi-
pany will alsb build their ticket and
telegraph offices on lots 7 and 8,

will be erected In the next * few

CITY COUNCIL IS
OFFERED FINANCES
The Finance Committee Is At Present Engaged With Representatives
of Money Loaners—Bank of Montreal Makes Proposition Regarding
Treasury Certificates at About 97
The finance committee of the city,
council is busily engaged this week)
in negotiations looking to the sale
of either bonds of tbe city or short
term certificates. It, is understood
that the outlook for closing with one
or the other class of money-raising
mediums is quite bright. Mr. Dean,
representing a Toledo firm that took
a ctty issue last year, is now here,
and has had continued sittings with
the members of the finance committee. There have come other offers,
however, it is reported, and while no
decision has been reached by the
members of the council, it is not unlikely that before today passes a decision will be reached one way or
the other, either to take an offer
made or refuse it.
The Bank of Montreal has stepped
in also as the financial agent of the
city and made an offer in the matter of short term issues. The bank
is said to have offered what, would
represent over 96 for three-year
treasury certificates bearing B per
cent.
There are $371,000 worth of these
ready for acceptance and the taking
of them would give sufficient to reimburse the Provincial Government
for what is due it and provide the
means for getting started on the
hydro-electric proposition. Some of
the members of the council are said
to approve of this as a means of tid
ing over the present situation and
giving time to place the longer term
bonds when the market Improves.
It is evident that there is a decided Improvement in the money market
and this is shown in the multiplication of the offers made to buy city
Issues. The Bank of England, which
was enabled a week ago in consequence of further world-wide ease Iu
the money market and of the strong
position of its reserve, to lower its
minimum discount rate by one per
cent., making it three per cent., baa
given an indication of the advent of
cheaper money. This was the third
reduction since the beginning of the
year. A week before the rate was reduced  oue-half  per cent.
The negotiations opened last year
by ex-Mayor PanuHo are now bringing forth fruit. There was a reluctance on the part of the financial
houses up to the last week or two to
look at offers. The situation now is
changed and municipal bonds seem
again to be sought after. It has now
become a question only of price, it
would appear. There is a demand
j also for short, term issues with higher rates of interest, but the tendency
seeni.s again to point to cheaper
money.

in part:
"I have ceased to be connected

and I have declined to become president of the amalgamate.! Herald-
Telegraph, because of a serious difference with the parties In control
as to the manner in which the business should lie conducted, particularly as to the responsibility of one

Mr. Fielding also stated that he
became satisfied that Sir Hugh Graham was In practical control of the
Telegraph Publishing Company, and
also of the Herald Company, and In
view of the wide divergence of their
views on public affairs he felt lie
could not have a satisfactory connection with a journal controlled by
him.

Appeal,
Premier McBride has announced
that, about mid-summer, or possibly
in the early autumn of this year, he
intends to make a tour of the province. Tbe Premier will visit practically all of the chief points in British
Columbia and it. is understood that
not only will hi* itinerary embrace
the older sections of the interior in
the south, but he will also take in
'loints along the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific. He will probably be
accompanied by one or two of the
ministers.
Sir Richard manages to visit a
good deal of the province every
year. Last year his trip to London
prevented him from getting to very-
many of the British Columbia towns
and he intends to make up for this
omission  during  the  coming season,
ll v.u- definitely stated by the
Premier that his prospective trip
this year did not mean an early election. The presenl administration has

A   FICKLE   MARKF/1
In no line of business
appear, is there more fickle feeling
shown than in the world of finance.
The money market appears to be
subject to quicker changes, both upward and downward, than does any
other line. The money market appears lo be responsive to the most
unusual tendencies. This is evidenced
at the present time when it is remarked by financiers that there has
been a very remarkable recovery
from the stringency that has prevailed during the past few years. From
a period of extreme pessimism, the
London market appeared to assume
a very optimistic tone.
In this connection there were not
wanting warnings, however, by well
known authorities. In the annual
statement of the president of the
Royal Bank of Canada a few weeks
ago the hope of a change was forecasted, and the reason given for this
hope was that a feeling of pessimism
prevailed. It would appear from tbe
statement of Mr. Pease on that occasion that no awakening from a
panicky feeling is to be expected as
long as the public believe there is
nothing to be afraid of, It would
seem on an analysis of tbe statement
of the bank president that the users
of money must come to fully realize
that there need of economy. Only
when the public has been brought to
realize the value of credits can a
safe line of credii be < ablished.
The stringency thai the world has
been passing through would appear
to have been due to no great calamity in any one line, but a general
need on the part of the money suppliers lo bring the money users to J
their senses. Once the impression
was made to prevail that credits
must, be carefully guarded and their
values re-established all wei t    ell.

The average American or Canadian citizen is wantonly wasteful in
the use of water. Statistics of water
consumption show a great difference
between the amount consumed by
cities in Europe and in America.
The average daily consumption in
seventeen large cities in England
France and Germany is about 117
gallons per capita, the highest being
about 6G gallons, at Glasgow, and
the lowest about 2d gallons, al
Nuremberg. The per capita consumption in the average American or
Canadian city Is nearly four times
as great. In New York city the
daily consumption is about 130 gallons per capita; In Cnlcago, Philadelphia and Pittsburg il is close to
200 gallons.
The excss of the per capita con-
would ii- j sumption of water in America over
Europe can be traced almost directly to the personal habits and financial status of the two peoples. Al
though water for toilet use should
not be stinted In amount, and although there is no disposition among
the advocates of water economy to
discourage habits of cleanliness, it
is a fact established beyond all
disproof, that the present consumption is largely in excess of the
amount necessary to secure the desired end. Consequently the use of
water meters on house service has
become very common, not, it should
be emphasized to reduce the necessary consumption, but io impart to
the householder the habit of giving
thought to needless waste.
Two objections are urged by those
who oppose the introduction of water  meters.
(1) Many claims relative to their
alleged disease-breeding qualities
have been made, but all have been
shown to be absolutely unfounded.
(2) The most common and the
most sincere objection advanced by
uninformed persons is that, with
metered services, the charge for water results in diminished personal
cleanliness, which might contribute
indirectly to disease. There is no
evidence that such an effect was
ever produced and a moment's consideration will show that such an
occurrence is most unlikely. ±he difference between personal cleanliness and personal uncleanliness is
represented by such a small amount
of water that it is negligible.
Many opponents of meters who
base their objections ou the ground
of cost to the poor man are In ignorance of the fact thai the minimum rate under the metered system
is so low thai the poor man actually
effects a saving, and, furthermore,
the amount usable for the minimum
rate is ample for ordinary use— but
not  for wasteful  use.

Into existence just in
time to rescue from destruction documents, hooks, sketches, and other
records concerned with the transformation oi Canada from a wilderness to a modern nation, says the
Ottawa. Free Press. Many people
Imagine that Canadian history is
dull, because it is r.ot full of dates
of the births and deaths of kings
and records or battles. This is a
tremendous mistake and one that
ought to he corrected in the schools.
History in the modern sense is concerned with tiie story of the people
and ii is just this that makes early
Canadian   history  so   fascinating.
There is quite enough excitement
in our early records to please everyone. Great changes were not brought
about without bloodshed. The Indians did not submit peacefully to
the white invasion and many a European quarrel was fought out again
on American soil. The deepest interest, of all is concentrated on the
stories of explorations and the
courage of the pioneers, who ventured into the unknown with what
we today would consider the porrest
of equipment. All the facts showed
that they were men of no
order. To lose the records of these
explorations would have been a national calamity, and to collect, classify and safeguard these treasures is
a truly national work deserving of
national recognition'.
The fact that the Canadian people
have undertaken this work is one
of the proofs that after all we are
not entirely given over to money
making. We do value higher things
and we have been found equal to the
task of gathering together the records of the work that transformed
our country. These records will become increasingly valuable with the
passing of time and the printing of
selections should ensure them against
total loss whatever calamities may
come upon us. The pioneers were not
good at writing records with the exception of Ihe Jesuit fathers, but
ihe latter have enriched literature
with their relations. These, with
their quaint simplicity and fullness,
enable us to to picture what manner
of man these pioneers were and the
manner of work they did. In saving
and making accessible these records,
tl e Dominion archivists, Dr, Doughty
and his staff, are doing a work only
less important than thai accomplish-
I the pioneers themselves. It is
a greal undertaking, nationally con-
iived and carried out  In  the broad-!

\i:w COMMISSION.
Saskatchewan   Body   Controls  Muni.
cipal )• inuiue—Gives Advice ou
Raising  Money.
The Saskatchewan Commission lo
control municipal finance has now-
entered ou its duties. This board
supervises all municipal bond issues,
and its stamp of approval means
much to the individual municipality
Iu floating its debenture issues. The
Saskatchewan government is the
first in Canada to take this very
important step. While It has been
ommon generally conceded that such a commission would be ofenormous value
to municipalities, nothing has been
done outside of Saskatchewan. The
commission gives, advice on the best
.forms of raising money for Improvement works, as to the advisability
of the works contemplated, and the
class of the work most suitable.
What this means to the investor in
the Old Country or the United States
who seeks to purchase Western debentures can be readily decognized.
He is assured that unless the works
are justifiable the commission will
not approve of them, and this will
have a tendency to trim expenditures
of improvement works which are
sometimes outlined by over-optimistic municipal councils. The bes: men
to be had have been se i red to act
on this commission and their appointment is  to  be for ten years.

THE  BRIBER!' STORY
Former   Editor   of    .Montreal   Herald I g3
Gives Evidence Before Com- ;js
mittee at Quebec.
Edward Berk, former editor of the, Jg
Montreal   Herald,   before   the   House , I=j
of Assembly committee, testified as
to the Events leading up to the grati
charges  against   three     members  of
the Quebec Legislature.    Two inter- j =§
esting statements made by Mr. Beck \ =8
respecting the inner workings of the
plan of investigation were explained
fully for the first time.
"As president of tbe Montreal
Herald Company." said Mr. Beck,
"and as editor-in-chief of the Mon-1 =1
treal Herald, reports and rumors j J
had come to me that bills inimical I |H
as lo what was regarded as the best \ ^M
Interests of Montreal would be In-1 =gj
(reduced at the coming session of S3
the Legislature, and I was very SB
much Interested in discovering if i SB
thai were true, and frustrating It 3H
if   possible." I ^g
His Own  Plan-. ■ ■"§
Air. Beck declared thai the calling |M
In of the Hums Detective Agency ||g
was the result of his own plans, as ^=g
lie. as managing editor of the Mou-: =p
treal Herald, had persuaded I' iJ^j
Lome McGibbon, then owner of Ihe | HI
paper, to finance the operations. II.■ gs
made it plain that at the commence-1^SJ
ment the idea bad been to trap the
members of tho Legislature In connection with the Montreal Tramway
Company, and also with the possible
legislation in connection with the
Montreal Water & Power Company,
and the city's own charter bill. The
later developments came by spontaneous growth, following the abandonment of the more specific measures originally aimed at.
After describing the invasion of
Quebec and tbe appearance on the
scene of Mr. Berard, the part played
by Mr. McGibbon was discussed.
Attar a question of the chamber bad
brought forth the reply that Mr. Me
