New Rule.
A bill embodying a definite and
comprehensive recognition of the
profit-sharing principle in handling
public timber resources and providing for an adjustment of royalties
was introduced in the Legislature by
the Hon. W. R. Ross, minister of
lands.
The bill fixes the royalty increase
which will become effective on
January 1, 1915, and creates a
standard of    lumber    prices    upon

which all future Increases are based
It provides for an increase on the
coast lumber from fifty cents to
seventy-five ceuts. The royalty of interior lumber remains the same, but
with a change in the method of sealing which will increase the returns
about 40 per cent. In the Northern
interior and in the proximity of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway the
rate has been struck at sixty-five
cents.
There will be a readjustment of
the royalties every five years for
seven successive periods and a stated
percentage of the increment in the
price'of lumber shall lie added to the
royalties. Under the bill this percentage is fixed at 25 per cent, for
the first five years and rises gradually until it attains to a' maximum
of forty per cent, during the last
quinquennial period. The basic average price of lumber is arbitrarily
fixed at $18.00.
A readjustment of ground rentals
is made between the coast and interior sections. In the coast sections
the present rental of $140.00 per annum continues iu operation while
that in the interior has been reduced from $115 to $100. A uniform
scale for the whole of the province
has also been adopted in place of
the Doyle scale which operates in
the interior.
Under the bill the forest branch
of the government shall make an annual return of the total amount of
lumber cut in the province with a
tabulated statement appended setting forth the wholesale selling
prices of the same.
Mr. W. R. Ross before introducing
the bill estimated that it would be
the .means of increasing the timber
royalty by between $50,000 and
$liQ,000 in the immediate future.
By 1924, assuming that the annual
lumber cut increases on an average
at t'.ie conservative figure of five
per cent, per annum, and the prices
go up moderately to $21 per thousand. The new policy will have increased the royalties revenue to $2,-
500,000.
'O After long years of opposition in
the province with no prospect of any
alteration In the conditions, the liberal party, or at least, a section of it,
seems to have grown frantic. The
organ of that party in Prince Rupert
seems to be dominated now by this
frenzied section, It is with them
power at all costs and at all sacrifices In the matter of party honor.
Last evening a special spasm was
thrown out dealing with the water
question as it affects this part of the
province, and in this connection the
attempt is made to mislead the public with regard to the Woodworth
Lake power proposition now held
by the city and also with regard to
the Tsimpsean Power Company's
rights.
Dealing with the latter one first,
the attempt is made to show that the
wicked McBride Government passed
out to the Tsimpsean Power Company some tremendous grab with
respect to the water powers surrounding this city and the city Is to
remain forever throttled because ot
that.
Now, let the facts be looked into.
The Tsimpsean Power Company acquired rights under an act of the
Legislature in a regular way. There
was no railroading through of this,
as it is well known to those about
the legislative balls at that time that
another company was seeking to incorporate under the ordinary companies act without special act of the
legislature about the same time, in
the private bills committee the both
sides fought the matter out with
first-class counsel. It is thus evident
that the representative of the district at the time did not have any
excuse for not knowing what was going ou.
Now, the representative of the
district at that time was not one of
these wicked 'lories.    That was be-

JUVENILE JUDGE
Mrs. Ben Lindsey, wife of the famous juvenile judge of Denver, Colo.,
sitting on the Bench of the Juvenile Court with her husband. Judge
Lindsey, who was married only recently, was the originator of the Juvenile Court idea, and founded the first court for children in Denver.
Judge Lindsey says that Mrs. Liudsey is a great aid to him in disposing
oi the many cases of juvenile delinquency that come before him. Mrs.
Lindsey, soon after her marriage, begged to be permitted to sit on the
Bench, to which Judge Lindsey finally consented. Now Mrs. Lindsey
misses scarcely a day from the Juvenile Court.
SAILORS FROZEN
IN THE RIGGING
Wellfleet, Feb. 17.—Four seamer* perished today through the
Italian barque Castagana striking on the bar at Cape Cod. Seven
additional seamen were nearly unconscious from exposure when
brought ashore. They will recover, however. The frozen bodies of
the captaiu and three sailors were left in the rigging, where they
had lashed themselves to avoid being carried away by the heavy
seas that swept the deck of the  vessel.

FRIDAY,    FERRUARY   SO
Tickets—Gentlemen, $2.00; ladles

Fifty years ago yesterday Mr. and
Mrs. Patrick Carey were wedded in
Dublin County, Ireland. Mrs. Carey-
was then but fourteen years of age,
while the groom was a few years her
senior. Very shortly afterwards they
left Ireland, and ever since have
been following pioneer lines in Canada. Last evening there were many
callers at their home on First Avenue to congratulate them and wish
them many more years of wedded
life, for t her'are both hale and
hearty.
Among the Callers was M, Albert,
of the Westholuie Lumber Company,
who has been a close neighbor of the
old couple for a long time. He remembered tne occasion by presenting
them with a beautiful silver biscuit
jar, suitably inscribed as being presented to them by himself on the
occasion of the fiftieth anniversary
oi their wedding. From their daughter, who is married and living in
St. Paul, came a telegram of congratulation on the day.
While many well-wishers gathered last evening the old pair recounted many interesting incidents in their
long careers. Mr. Carey voted at the
first mayoralty elections In Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Vancouver,
Nelson and Prince Rupert. Mrs.
Carey recalls seeing the first plank
laid in the roads in Winnipeg, in Regina and in Prince Rupert. They
have seen every one of the cities
mentioned spring from nothing to
good flourishing centres.

Washington. Feb. 17.—
President Wilson will veto the
Burnett Immigration Bill if it
passes Congress providing for an
illiteracy test. This is according to the best information in
circles close in touch with the
White House and is said to be
definite news. That the president is opposing the bill came
as a surprise to many who were
led to believe he favored it.
Ulster settlement seems as far away
as in December. It is said the rank
and file have made up their minds
to have quiet.
ANOTHER RAILWAY
FOR THIS DISTRICT
Pacific Peace River And Athabaska
Road's Charter Approved of—The
Largest Coal Operator In England
Is Chief Promoter of the Company
It  Is  Announced  At the Capital
Ottawa, Feb. 17.—Northern British Columbia is likely to have another railway line. The Railway
Committee of the House has granted the charter to the Pacific, Peace
River & Athabasca Railway, which
proposes to construct 1500 miles oF
Hue in Northwestern Canada.
The proposed route of the railway
line is north of the G.T.P. It starts
from the Pacific, as at present specified, from the mouth of the Naas
River, and passes eastward through
Northern British Columbia and the
Peace River country to Prince Albert
It is designed, according to the
promoters, to open up particularly
vast coal, tar and mineral areas. The
route    designed    la one    that    taps
several fields known to be rich in
these resources.
Col. Thompson, the counsel For
the company, made much out of the
fact that, the chief factor In the projecting of the line is I). A. Thomas,
probably the largest coal operator
in Great Britain. It is proposed to
tap the splendid coal areas of the
Canadian Northwest and particularly
smokeless coal deposits In Northern
British Columbia which would be
used for the British navy.
K\ tending Time.
The Railway Committee passed
an amendment to the Esquimau &
Nanaimo Railway charter extending
the time for the construction of the
line on Vancouver Island by two
years.
WHY NOT BUILD
A WOODEN DAM
There Seems to Be Good Reasons
Why Timber Right at Hand Could
Be Utilized at Woodworth Lake-
Cement Proposition Would Be Expensive Compared With the Other
The' question is raised in the cityO*
in connection with the hydro-electric
proposition that the dam at. Lake
Woodworth might well be. altered
from tiie proposed cement structure
to one of wooden construction. There
are many reasons in Favor of the
crib dam there which at once appeal
to those who have any knowledge oF
the  place.
Yesterday a party oF about eight
citizens made a trip to tiie lake,
tramping all the way from the landing place at Shawatlans to Lake
Woodworth and back. The party was
made up of Judge Young, Alex
Young, A. Cam, G. D. Tlte, Dr.
Clayton, L. Bell, O. H. Nelson, Aid.
G. W. Kerr and T. Duncan,.the electrician. The opinion seemed to be
general on the part of the citizens
that made the trip that there were
many reasons why the crib dam
should receive careful consideration.
Among the3e was the fact that
there is an abundance of timber
right at hand there for the work.
The sides of the mountains along
the stream rise quite abruptly and
are well wooded. It would seem a
very easy matter to throw the timber
to the location of the dam, and
with experienced axemen have a
dam quickly constructed
If this were done the heavy task
of transporting cement to the dam
would be overcome. Thi3. it would
seem, would be a >e-ry co-tiy 'jtvier-
taking. In addition there would be
a saving of time in the work. Thi

Tbe monies raised under this
act are to be used in meeting treasury bills to the amount of £310,000,
which mature in London on May

raised being paid Into the consolidated revenue fund of the province.
The bill also approves of the or-

providing for an overdraft of $1,-
500,000, and ratifies the issue and

I validated at that time.
Although the loan provides for a

LADIES GAME
GREAT SUCCESS
MUST    BASKETBALL    MATCH   IS
PLAYED  IIV   LADIES' OH'X
CLUB.
Tennis Representing Married Defeated That of Single by
41 to 23.
The first basketball game played
by the ladies of the city was put on
last evening at the Auditorium
when a crowded house greeted the
players and encouraged them in their
play. The match was put on by the
Ladies' Own, who have, under the
training ot L. Porter, been steadily
acquiring all the details oF the game
for some months pasl, making use
of the gymnasium at the .Methodist
Church. Last night the public was
given the opportunity to see what
they could do, and certainly there
was a most creditable showing, made
by the players. 7
The teams were described us I lie
married ladies and the single ladies,
although the line-up showed that
neither side had followed what
would have been expected to have
been the main distinct ion very closely, and so the teams were mixed h.s
* thanks expressed.
* 	
'       The secretary  of the   Ladies'
' own Basketball   Club   and   the
* trainer of the same wish to ex-
* tend thanks to the public for the
* splendid response made by them
' .u   the  firsl   match    which   was
* played.    There  were  4S4     paid
* For admittance.    Besides    that,
* many others rendered   valuable
* services  to  the club  in  getting
* up the match.
reFeree was Len Porter, who had
trained the ladies in the art ot" tiie
game.
It became evident From the very
start oF the game that it was not
going to be any child's play. Both
sides started off with all the vim
that would characterize experienced
male players. Throughout the entire
evening this same characteristic was
observed. From the onlookers there
was a constant "rooting" kept up.
and everyone forgot In the excellent
playing and the determined checking that ladies were striving for the
mastery.
While the score was somewhat uneven, 41 to 23 in favor of the married team, the Play was very even.
Xot a single opportunity to score
was allowed to pass, and Mr. Porter,
the trainer, was congratulated in
common with the players themselves on the way in which the
teams showed up.
Any future matches will be watched for with keen interest and the
ladies have certainly shown how to
throw interest into the basketball
game in tiie city.

regarded being married and single.
The married ladies' team wore black
as their colors, while the single ones
played  under white colors.
The teams lined up as follows:
Married—Forwards,   Miss E. Taylor and Mrs.   E. A. Woods;    centre,
i.lrs. Hugh Dunn; guards, Mrs. A. J.
f!;lmore and Miss Morrlssey.
Single—Forwards, Mrs. L. VV.
Kergin and Mrs. H. S. Parker;
centre, Mrs. C. B. Balater; guards,
Mr.i.    Voge and    Misa    Irwin.    The
a courl function lie is conspicuous in
evening dress, and the disregard ol
the American Government for the
sensibilities of Monarchial Courts is
a matter of comment.
"li may be given out officially
that tlif non-participation of Germany In tlie Panama-Pacific exposition at San Francisco is based on industrial and economic grounds. It is
a fact, nevertheless, that this action
of the government Is due largely to
the cumulative irritation over tbe
administrative features of your
tariff.

mouthpieces of the land barons, who
has great influence with the government, said a few days ago:
" 'It Is undeniable that President
Wilson's Mexican policy has caused
ill-feeling in influential commercial
circles In Germany, and the United
States no longer enjoys the sympathy
of Germany, as it did in the past.' "
DARING ATTEMPT
TO DECEIVE
i Continued  from  Page One.)
Fore the time when the electorate
oF British Columbia had Fully discovered the Liberal party of the time
and had persisted in relegating to
private life anyone who would espouse the cause of that party. There
was a good-sized representation of
Liberals in the Legislature and
Skeena had one of them. His voice
was never heard crying out against
that iniquitous measure, neither in
committee nor in the Legislature.
The incorporation act was acquired in the ordinary way with the full
knowledge of all, but the Liberal
representative of the constituency
never considered that he should
block any such move. The member
for this district, a Liberal at that,
never stood on his feet and denounced the Government nor the
company.
Now, with regard to the Wood-
worth Lake proposition. The water
of that lake was not given away by
the Bowser-McBride machine to one
i". M. Woodworth," as Is represented
by the Liberal organ. C. M. Wood-
worth acquired rights to the water
under the statutes of the province
just as any Liberal couid have ob-
talned them. Is it to be supposed that
a government is to reserve all rights
It holds In water and every other
natural resource to lie held for development by the state.' If that is
the doctrine of that paper, why does
it not. come out manfully and assume
the role of advanced Socialism, for
that system is the only one that
could so do it.
Mr. Woodworth under the laws oi
the province having obtained rights
was entitled to use them. There
were those who are now bitterly opposing the Government who were
willing to pay $30,000 for the rights
held by Mr. Woodworth In order to
obtain them for the city. William
Manson, through the good offices of
the Government, obtained those
rights for $15,000, and the rights of
Mr. Woodworth were extinguished
without the Government eatabllsh-
llshlng a reputation for disregarding
rights that had become vested by
perfectly legitimate and proper
means.
