Rt. Hon. R. L. Borden At Grand Gathering Given In Toronto Shows What His Policy Aims At
Doing for Canada and the Whole Empire-Imperial Squadron With Headquarters At

Under His Scheme of Action—Adequate Bases Will Be Maintained on the Atlantic and the Pacific Coasts
Captain James Scott has returned
to New Westminster from a trip
through the Peace River country In
the deijth of winter. He travelled
over 600 miles by dog team and
three times as far by rail and
steamer.
Captain Scott tells of much gold
in the Peace River country. In the
Babine country he and his party
found good silver and galena prospects being worked, and many
leases on old creeks have been taken
up in that vicinity where f rospectors
are getting some gold. A tragedy of
the north country was revealed in
the Btory told by Captain Scott of
two men who were snowbound 50
miles from the nearest camp. They
started out for food, and one of them
was found to a starved condition at
Old Hogom and was fed by a Bear
Lake Indian. His companion was
found frozen to dea.th about six
miles away.
Tbe captain said, however, that
the climate was good in the Peace
River country. They experienced
some 40 below zero weather, but
camped on bare ground on April 15.
The fine bright weather in spring
caused his four companions to become snowblind and he had to leave
them. He left them at Hazelton,
slowly recovering their eyesight.

PRINCE RUPERT IS
NEAR WHEAT BELT
The Proximity of This Port to the Immense
Grain Producing Country of the Peace
River Valley Will Make It Well Nigh
Impossible to Cut Off the Shipping of Cereals By Way of
This Harbor to Markets of World
This city seems destined by natural conditions to he the centre of
a great wheat ship! ing business.
,The opening up of the grain arens
of the Canadian prahies is showing
that the .richest areas lie west and
north of Edmonton. What is generally known as the Peace River valley, which takes in an empire in itself, Is proving thut it Is to be the
producer of the greatest amount of
farm produce probably in the Dominion of Canada.
That territory is to be tapped by
the Grand Trunk Pacific and the
product will find its way to Prince
Rupert for transportation abroad
easier in this direction than by any
other route. In consequence this city
will be the home of great mills,
where the finished products of the
wheat in the form of flour and later
in biscuits and other types of prepared foods will be manufactured
and shipped to the markets of the
world.
Tho Victoria Colonist, In referring
to the ambitions of Edmonton with
respect to holding the trade of the
Peace River country, shows that
Prince Rupert is well Bituated for
the trade, and must of necessity get
it. The Colonist says:
"Edmonton Is confident that she
will be the metropolis of the Peace
River country, and yet there 1b a
perfectly  feasible route for a rail
way that will bring the point where
the eastern boundary of the province
crosses the Peace as near the Pacific
seaboard as it can be brought to
Edmonton. If Fort St. John, which is
near the centre of the area in the
Peace River Valley transferred by
the Province to the Dominion, be
taken as a centre and the distance
from that point to Edmonton be
taken as a radius, a circle drawn
within that radius will cross the Canadian Northern a few miles above
Kamloops, the route of the Pacific
Great Eastern a few miles above
Lytton, the route of the proposed
Mid-Provincial and Nechaco Railway
at tide water on Dean Channel, and
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
between Hazelton and Prince Rupert. These are Important geographical factors, which even the great
energy of the people of Edmonton
can hardly overcome. The fine city
on the Saskatchewan has a great future in store, but it cannot hope
successfully to resist the Western
movement of grain. When wheat can
be delivered alongside a ship at substantially the same cost as it can be
delivered at Edmonton, it is unlikely
that It will be sent many hundreds
of miles eastward overland to reach
a ship, and several hundred more
through inland waters before it
reaches an ocean-going carrier."
Toronto, May 20.—Rt. Hon. II. L. Borden, Premier of Canada, was
given u most magnificent reception here lust night. Toronto lias accorded
to public men in the past great receptions. The enthusiasm which marked the  reception  to Premier Borden was never equalled before.
Mr. Borden spoke in splendid form and was given u most responsive
hearing. It was plainly evident at every moment of the deliberate speech
he delivered that he was but voicing sentiments that were heartily endorsed by the audience and lie was cheered to the echo. His speech was
full of epigrammatical sentences that drew forth hearty applause.
The following are some of the points scored by Mr. Borden in his
speech:
"But for the fact that Britain ruled the seas in the days of long ago
there would be no Canada now."
"We asked the Admiralty for a plain unvarnished statement. We received in reply information of a grave character."
"The aid which Canada can give at the present time cannot be
measured hi ships nor money."
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier's naval policy is the separatist's policy."
"The Senate is not, never was, and never will be above the Canadian
people."
"A United Empire fleet for general defence."
"The disposition of the fleet to vary with the changing situation of
the world policies."
"Canada to have adequate naval bases at Halifax and on the Pacific."
"Adequate shore defences on each toast."
"Small cruisers and torpedo boats to be built in Canada."
"The administrative headquarters of the Imperial squadron to be at
Gibraltar."
"The Dominions which contribute a gift of ships will arrange the
general itinerary of the squadron."

In view of May 24th "Empire Day" falling on a Saturday this year, the City Council has proclaimed Monday, May 26th a

addition to the Dominion Holiday of May I

TO CHECK EMIGRATION.
Lloyd George Sees in the Exodus to
the Dominion and Elsewhere
a Danger.
"This serious stream of immigration," is how Hon. Lloyd George,
the chancellor of the exchequer, describes the present state of affairs in
Britain in regard to emigration to
the Dominions and elsewhere. The
chancellor views with alarm the
steadily growing tendency on the
part of Britishers to leave their native land and sees In it a severe
blow at the backbone of Great
Britain as represented by its Industries.
That all these emigrants should
be kept in the country and provided
with work and adequate remuneration is the stand taken by Mr. Lloyd
George, and if he can manage it. he
will kill emigration to a large extent. Although not wishing to take
from the Dominions, the chancellor
Is ot the opinion that Britain must
consider herself first, and if the
steady stream of emigration keeps
up Britain will find her population
gradually being depleted to the detriment of her industries.
In the House of Commons he said
that he had a plan which he would
divulge later whereby the stream
will be diverted and the surplus
population of the towns placed on
the land. The chancellor made a
stirring appeal to the Opposition to
treat the land question as a national
one, and keep it outside party politics.
The seriousness of the situation in
regard to migration which took away
the best typos should, he said, sufficiently appeal to all politicians to
make them unanimous on any effective scheme which would keep f )t"
Britain her sturdiest and most enterprising sons.
COST OP GERMAN ARMY.
Each Man Costs His Family at Least
$238 During His Two  Years of
Service.
Remember that Harry C. Evans,
the pioneer piano tuner, is In the
city. Leave orders at Hayner's.      tf
At a time when Germany is about
to make a big increase in her army,
it is of Interest to note the economic
effect of the present peace footing
upon a typical peasant family. This
aspect o Germany's military burden
has been made the subject of investigation, and from reports on nearly
2000 peasants' families in Bavaria,
It is seen that every soldier costs his
family af least $238 during the two
years of service In the army. As the
pay of the men does not suffice for
their needs, their parents have to
send them money and gifts that average about $3C a year. Besides this,
the peasant must hire a farm laborer
as a substitute for his son, which
means a furtner   expense   of $!*o.
These figures appear all the more
serious when It is remembered that
over half of the families included
In the investigation furnished the
country at least four soldiers each,
while the number went as high as
eight or nine in some families.
A striking feature of the situation
Ib the virtual ruin of some small
farms by the removal of the young
men to do their term of service. Such
cases are by no means rare. One
peasant who supplied five soldiers
wrote: "I should have been glad to
send a few of them to school, but I
am spending all my money on the
army." Anotner, owner of three
acres of land and himself a farm
laborer for a part of his time, said:
"My property, small enough already,
was ruined by military duty." He
had sent four sons into the army.

Works.
Dr. Large, of Port Simpson, acting under Instructions from the
chief of Provincial Police here, intended to leave last night by tbe
steamer Venture for Granby,
where he will hold a coroner's inquest into the circumstances
surrounding the deaths of the two
who lost their lives by the bursting
of the dam there. Dr. Large will,
therefore, be on his way to the
smelter town now. In the absence of
J. H. McMullin from the city, Chief
Owen communicated with Dr. Large
to act.
It is reported that the mining
company will lose no time in restoring the loss that has been sustained
there. Work is expected to start at
once in replacing the works and no
time will he lost in the carrying out
of the general scheme of development at the mines and the smelter.

SHAWATLANS WATER
EXPECTED IN JULY
Work on the Foundation for the New Pump
That Will Be Installed There Is Being Carried Out So That There Will Be Little Delay When the Pump Gets
Here-A Carload of Pipe Is
Still Needed to Complete the Line
May   20,   6   p.m.—Bar.,     29.781;
max., 54.0; min., .48.
The prospects are that by about
July 1 the city will have the water
system connected up with Sbawat-
lans Lake and the pump that is to
he Installed there In working order
and giving the city a permanent|
supply of water. There have been
many vexatious delays In connection
with this work, but tho end is now
in Bight, it win be soma weeks yet
before the pump that has been ordered will bo here and ready to put
in I.laoe. There will not he much delay in this, however, it is expected,
for the foundations for the pump aro
in   place.
The freezing up of the pipes last
winter with the consequent bursting
that followed has also been the
cause of delay. More pipe had to be
ordered and put In place. There is
still one carload on tbe way thai
will be needed to complete the way
to the lake.
When the pipe line Is all In place
It is the intention of the council to
maintain the pump at Morse Creek
as an emergency source of supply.
With only one line across the channel tho city will require to hold a
reserve supply until a second pipe
line can be put In place. The Morse
Creek supply has proved an excellent
proposition for the city In spite of
the opposition that was stirred
against it at the time It was propos
ed  by a few of the council of that
time.
Pit*  Has Opened  I p.
A now cigar and tobacco store has
been opened In the city. It Is under
the charge of Mr, l-'ilzinanrice, who
Is well known In the city and is
popular. The success of the store
seems, therefore assured. The location is In the Hart Block, The store
hears  the  simple  name "Fltz."

THE  NAVAL QUESTION.
In matters of defence there must
be constant changing of the principles that are to be observed. What
is the correct policy in one decade
with respect to the disposition of
forces, either naval or land,-may be
altered and become an improper rule
to follow in the next decade. There
Is constant change necessary in connection with the disposition of the
naval forces. This is evident at
every turn in the world's affairs,
and the British Navy has to adapt
itself to altered conditions from time
to time.
There was a time when the Navy
was represented by squadrons in
every sea. That policy lasted for a
long time and was regarded in many
quarters as the one that would be
pursued for all time to come. But
there came a change and without
much warning the policy was reversed. The rise of naval powers in
(Europe made it necessary that there
should be a centering of the fleets
in the waters close to the base of
defence should trouble arise. For
years after that policy of centralization in the British waters was acted
upon the policy of patrolling the
Seven Seas was maintained in a limited degree by the equipping of flying squadrons. This, however, was
3 fop peel eventually, and for years
there has been a mobilization about
the British Isles, the heart of the
Empire.
This has not meant that the Imperial authorities have been neglectful of the outlying parts of the Empire. It, does not mean that the defence of any part of the Empire was
to be neglected. Had the occasion
arisen there is no question that the
means would have been afforded to
give all the assistance that was
needed. Alliances were made by the
Nation that had for its effect the
maintenance of peace and order in
the uttermost parts of the earth,
just as the maintaining of an effective fleet at Home meant peace in
Europe. Such was the alliance with
Japan. That alliance meant the
guai^.ing of British interests on the
Pacific coasts.
There are not wanting evidences
•that a change of policy is now in
course of evolution with regard to
the fleets of the Empire. Britain is
apparently to maintain the upper
hand in the matter of naval construction. There will be room for a
mobile fleet within striking distan'-e
of any of the seas that are to be kept
open for the trade of the Empire.
Gibraltar, it would appear 1b to be
the base that will be used in this.
But no one can say that the policy
will remain always as it is at present. Decentralization appears to be
coming. It can only come when the
relative strength of the British Navy
Is such as to warrant It. The policy
that Premier Borden is pursuing
has for its object the insuring of absolute mastery of the seas and with
that the peace of the world. Whatever the necessary policy may be,
whether one. of centralization in
British waters or in the waters of
any other part of the world, or one
of decentralization, Canada will be
prepared to take its share in the
common defence of the principles
for which the Empire stands. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier may preach that
"defence, like charity, begins at
home," but the policy of Mr. Borden
Is that defence must be for every
part of the Empire.
PROTECT   THE    IMMIGRANT.
The steps taken by the Hon. T. W.
Crothers, acting minister of the interior, for the better protection of
the immigrant, cannot but meet with
general approval. Hitherto unscrupulous employment agencies have
waxed fat on the fees extracted from
immigrants ignorant of the conditions of the country, and, in many
eases, of the language. The regulations which ha*ve been adopted In
council will enable the Immigration
department to handle employment
sharks with a firmer hand. Every
employment agent must now display
on his premises a license from tbe
superintendent of immigration and
keep a register of all immigrants
placed, with particulars of wages
promised, work to be performed,
price for board, etc., and this
register is to be open at all times to
the inspection of immigration officials. The agent must not send immigrants to a position without having
the written order of the prospective
employer, giving full particulars. No
order shall be filled if over two
months old and all orders shall be
open to inspection. No licensed employment agent shall charge more
than one dollar, and the penalty on
summary conviction for violation
shall be a fine not exceeding $100,
and in default imprisonment for not
more than three months. These regulations were highly necessary to protect the fair name of the country.
Nothing is more apt to dissatisfy and
disgruntle the new arrival than to be
roped in and bled by the waiting employment crook, who is wily enough
to evade criminal prosecution for
false pretences and against whom
civil process is waste of money.

Next Saturday evening in the magnificent new arena now being erected
by diet Mclntyre at Brighouse station on the Lulu Island line of the
B. C. Electric Railway Company, two
native-born British Columbia boys
will meet in a fifteen-round boxing
contest for the lightweight championship of Canada. Joe Bayley, a
sturdy son of Victoria, will appear
in the role of defender of the title,
while Ernie Barrieau, of Vancouver,
who claims New Westminster as his
home town, will enter the squared
circle as challenger. Just one hour
later, if the bout goes the scheduled
distance, Referee Jimmy Hewitt of
Vancouver will be called upon to
name the winner.
It is safe to assert that no boxing
contest ever staged in the Dominion

EDUCATION FOR
LIGHTHOUSE HONES
ON REPRESENTATIONS FROM H.
S. CLEMENTS AND OTHERS
SCHOOL ADVANTAGES
WILL BE FOUND.
The    Provincial    Department    Will
Take This Work in    Hand and
Dr.   Kiiiiig Is Working
— Out Scheme.
Far removed from the educational facilities that are to be found In
settled  parts,  the lightkeepers  that
attend the powerful lighthouses that
are dotted along the rugged shores
of British Columbia as a safeguard
to navigation, have in the past experienced considerable difficulty in
securing for their children the
necessary education that the more
favored youngsters of the province
are privileged to receive in the up-
to-date schools maintained by the
Government.
This state of affairs has now been
brought to an end as the Provincial
Government, upon strong recommendations from H. S. Clements,
representing this district; Mr. G. H.
Barnard, M. P.; F. H. Shepherd,
M.P.; R. F. Green, M.P.; Captain
George Robertson, agent of Marine
and Fisheries at Victoria, and other
influential sources, has decided to
establish a system of "assistant
schools" with a vie wto giving the
children of the coast lightkeepers
an education that will fit them to
take their place In the world on an
equal footing with those who are
blessed with the best educational facilities obtainable.
Assurances have been given by the
Hon. Dr. Young, provincial minister
of education, that the matter will be
taken up without delay and that
within the next month or two a number of lady teachers will be appointed to look after the educational
needs of the youngsters who pass
their lonely lives within the seclusion of our rock-bound islands.
At the present time there are approximately 166 children under the
age of sixteen, distributed among
the forty-seven lighthouses that shed
their rays of welcome light across
the treacherous inland waters of the
British Columbia coast, who are unacquainted with the interior of a
school. They are bright and healthy
youngsters endowed with an aptitude for learning although the facilities for securing knowledge in
the past has been practically nil.
The Provincial Government proposes" to establish a system on similar lines to the Trinity Light Service
in force on the coasts of Great
Britain, where lighthouses are arranged in school groups with a
teacher assigned to each group so as
to have a certain number of children
under one tutor. Elementary
courses will first be given for a period of several months, when the
teacher will be dispatched to another
group on another part of the coast.
Later the teacher will return to give
a more advanced coarse, and so on.

JOHNSON IS BROKE.
The statement that Jack Johnson
is broke and wants to fight Luther
McCarty in San Francisco in order
to earn enough to pay whatever fine
the Federal Court in Chicago Imposes on him for violation of the
white slave law, is contained In a
message received by Jas. W. Coffroth
from Ed. W. Smith, a Chicago sport
writer. Coffroth is asked if he can
handle the match.
Coffroth replied that he is unable
to do so at this time because all his
dates are filled. Smith's message
follows:
"Jack Johnson has asked the
United States Court to suspend sentence on him and grant a stay of
sixty days with permission to leave
the district in order that he may
train for a fight with Luther Mccarty. This move is made necessary
because Johnson says he Is-.broke
and can't pay a heavy fine. McCarty
says he will fight him any time and
anywhere. Would you be Interested
to the extent of offering inducements
for such a match Please answer as
soon as possible."
Jack Johnson will not be permitted to fight again until he has
either served his sentence or has
been acquitted after a new trial.
This statement was made by Assistant United States District Attorney Parkin after the receipt of
news that Johnson was seeking a
match there.
. o	
"I wouldn't associate with him. I
understand he's served a term in
prison."
"" "That's true, but it was for an offence involving a million dollars or
more; nothing really disgraceful,
you know."

PRINCE RUPBRT JOUKNAL.
SETTLERS RUSHING
INTO THE NORTH
AUSTRIAN GROUP   OF   FARMERS
FROM NORTH  DAKOTA PLAN
TO (JO TO PEACE RI\ El!
COUNTRY.
They Will, If Satisfied,    lliing in a
Largo Amount    of    Capital to
Settle    Along    the    Grand
Trunk  Pacific.
New British Columbia Is being
sought by settlers who desire to acquire farm lands. The route of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, with its rich
agricultural lands will be quickly
studded with farms, producing all
kiin-tiTof grains, fruits and live stock
to help supply the needs of the cities
and mining sections along the route.
As the forerunner of forty Austrian families, owning and representing wealth to the extent of $1,-
000,000 or more, Mr. George Platzer,
himself one of the wealthiest of the
group, left Vancouver for Fort
George, says the Vancouver Province, just to hand. His object is to
locate sufficient land to supply the
forty families which are at present
successfully operating farms in
North Dakota in the vicinity of
Maudau.
In conversation with his banker
here, continues the Province, Mr,
Platzer stated that if the colony decided to come to British Columbia
the poorest man among them would
have $5000 in cash in addition to
his stock and furniture. Others
would bave as much as $25,000
cash, and the live stock they own
is ranked with the best in the American West.
Mr. Platzer's object is to locate In
the Peace River district 50,000
acres of good agricultural land. The
most of this he expects to purchase
from the Provincial Government as
he is sure that the Government will
do everything in its power to assist
such a colony of wealthy and efficient farmers.
Tbe story of the colony at Man-
dan is short, but interesting. The
Austrians came there about twelve
years ago, when land was cheap in
the Dakotas. They all acquired
farms, built a school erected a
church, raised their families, and
finally  overgrew  their  boundaries.
During the past winter a party of
Russians came to the Austrians and
offered to buy their land. In order
to give more scope to their growing
families, the Austrians consented to
sell and a deal was put through by
which the Russians will next autumn
become possessors of ail the land
and  holdings of the Austrians.
In making the sale the Austrians
reserved their stock, as they had
been making a specialty of purebred cattle. This industry they determined to carry with them to whatever part of the country they might
settle.
Mr. Platzer, one of the head men
o. Lie colony, know a friend who
had come to British Columbia and
li^d become fascinated with the possibilities presented by the Peace
River country. In looking for a new-
location for the colony he thought
there could ho no better place than
in the northern interior of British
Columbia, but before making any
definite move towards bringing the
colony out, he first "decided to investigate. He left for the North yesterday.   On  his  report  depends  the
MOTION PICTURES
UNDER A CENSURE
c.
GORDON NOW PASSES UPON
EVERY FILM THAT   IS
SHOWN   IN THE
PROA INCE.
Provisions in the New Act    Require
That Every Precaution He
Taken for the Safety
of Public.
Rvery film exchange mast now
submit its films to the Provincial
Government picture censor Mr. C.
L, Gordon, and receive his gliutin of
approval. If they do not bear this
stamp these films may be seized by
the Government and confiscated,
The films must not hear the certificate of any other moving picture
censor.
The act is framed with scrupulous
regard to the safety of the public. It
provides that the operating room 111
a moving picture theatre shall be
covered on the outside with asbestos.
The frame is to be of iron with expanded metal laths for plaster.
There must be two floors, one of
wood and the other of asbestos. Certain openings are provided for light
beams and for the operator seeing
the screen and no more are permitted. Portable cabinet? are barred from regular theatres, but for
travelling and temporary shows permission for a portable cabinet may
be obtained for six days, if It conforms with certain regulations.
The shutter in front of the condenser-lens hood and in front of the
film aperture must be so constructed
as to shut automatically when the
rate of speed running the film drops
below the ordinary exhibiting speed.
Stringent electric wiring regulations
are contained in the act. All lights
must be contained within wire
guards. Insulating material is necessary on every point where there is
danger of leakage of electric current. In case anything should occur, however, at least two chemical
fire extinguishers must be provided
and a pail of sand and a hand shovel.
This last is for extinguishing fire in
burning insulation on electric wires
where water would be disastrous.
Operators must not be under 18
years of age, says the act. No intoxicated person can operate a machine. No smoking is to be allowed
in the operating room and no reading matter may be taken within.
Only those films required for one
performance may be stored in the
room and they must be provided
with  proper boxes.
The exits of the theatre itself
must be marked with red signs and
there must be no other red signs
visible. For each 350 square feet
of floor space there must be two
candle power of white light. The
doors of the theatre must open outwardly and aisles must be unobstructed.
The Government has embodied a
clause regulating the "talkies" that
are already operating in cities in the
east. Before any talking apparatus
can be operated in conjunction with
a moving picture machine the approval of the censor must first be
obtained.

CHANGES IN SERVICE.
The Dominion Government steamer Estevan has been placed in regular commission. Prominent among
the officers under Captain Barnes
will be Chief Officer W. Hallgren,
who has seen much service with the
Newington under the commander
who is to take over the new vessel.
The second officer will be A. K.
Saul, who came out with the Estevan
from Collingwood via. the Great
Lakes and the Straits of Magellan.
In charge of the engine-room will
be Chief Engineer Bell, who for
some time has acted in that capacity
aboard the Grand Trunk Pacific
steamer Prince George. Under Chief
Engineer Bell will be Second Engineer Sutherland, who also came
out with the Estevan; Third Engineer Morrison, from the Newington,
and Fourth Engineer Burton, transferred  from the steamer Quadra.
Wireless Operator Lucas will be
transferred from tbe Quadra to the
new vessel.
One of the best-known skippers
on the Pacific Coast in the person
of Captain C. LeBlanc will take over
the command of the Quadra. This
appointment became necessary when
it was announced that Captain John
Macpherson had been appointed to
the position of wreck commissioner
for the Pacific Coast.
Captain LeBlanc, during bis sojourn on the Coast, has been in
command of many vessels, and Is,
perhaps, most well known as the
master of the ill-fated steamer St.
Denis, which was subsequently sold
to Mexican Interests, and on her
voyage out from Cape Flattery
foundered in a gale with all hands.
Had them aster of the    St.    Denis
taken the advice of Captain LeBlanc
as to the proper loading of his vessel with coal, the chances are that
the litle steamer would have survived the storm.
Captain Harry Billton, who for
several years had been in the Government service as the master of the
steamer Cascade, will take over the
Newington after the bridge has been
vacated by Captain Barnes. Second
Engineer Mason will fill the engineer's vacancy on the fisheries cruiser.
SKAGWAY SERVICE.
At the first of next month the
five-day service of the C.P.R. between Victoria and Skagway will be
inaugurated and the two steamers,
the Princess May, Captain McLeod,
and the Princess Sophia, Captain
Campbell, will operate on that run
until late in the fall. The steamship
company has made great preparations for a bumper tourist season
and expects to handle the largest
crowd of sight-seers that has ever
gone north to see the mysteries of
the Northland.
The Princess May has been given
her overhaul and the Princess Sophia is now at the yards of the B.C.
Marine Railway having repairs made
to the injuries she received through
stranding on Sentinel Island, Lynn
Canal. The building in of a new forefoot, it is expected, will take about
ten days longer and the Princess
Sophia will then be ready for her
summer travel. The keel plate has to
be renewed for about 45 feet aft of
the stem and many new plates and
frames are required before the
Sophia will be sound and tight once
again.
Despite the fact that the mall contract calls for a five-day service to
Skagway after June 1, the C P.R. requires two steamers in the summer
to take care of its vast amount of
trade.
THE NEW VESSEL.
The Estevan is constructed of
steel throughout, is built equal to
class 100 al at Lloyds, and is fitted
with water ballast and double bottom extending from stem to stern.
The dimensions of the vessel are:
Length over all, 212 feet; between
perpendiculars, 200 feet; breadth
molded, 17.6 feet; load draft, mean,
11.6 feet, deadweight, 375 tons, and
is capable of developing a speed of
12 knots. The steamer has a straight
stem and eliptical stern and seven
watertight bulkheads.
The propelling machinery consists of two sets of inverted vertical,'
direct-acting, triple-expansion, surface-condensing engines, with cylinders 14.23 and 36 inch and 27-inch
stroke. These are supplied with
steam by two boilers 13 feet by 11
feet, fitted with Howden's forced
draft, and carrying a working r res-
sure of 180 pounds to the square
inch.
Throughout the steamer is lighted
with electricity, and is equipped with
steam steering gear, steam pumps,
winches; in fact, everything found
about a vessel of modern construction. The officers' quarters are well
arranged and finished in oak and
mahogany.
