EX-MAYOR JOHN LEE DIED IN NEW WESTMINSTER
New Westminster, June 18.—Mayor John Lee, President of the Provincial Conservative Association, died here suddenly to-day
in his motor car from heart failure. He was 45 years of age. Mr. Lee was mayor of New Westminster three years in succession,
1910, 1911, 1912. He was universally popular in the city of New Westminster and in the whole province. His uniform good nature endeared him to all who came in contact with him in a social and a commercial way.    He has been a devoted worker for this city
WORK GOING WELL
ON G. T. P. LINE
Trout Creek Has Been Reached Now
Which Will Necessitate A Short
Stop In Track Laying Until Steel Is
In Position—Then Quick Progress
Work along the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific is progressing, according to the reports that are received in the city, very well. The
track-laying gang has reached Trout
Creek and work in that line of operations Is now held up until the
crossing of the stream has been completed. This will not take long, and
General Superintendent Mehan expects that by the end of three weeks
the steel will be in place and the
gangs may again start on the laying
beyond that.
The cement foundations for the
trestles are in place, so that all that
has to be done by Ihe bridge company is to put the sleel across. The
steel Is all on the ground so that
there will  lie no wailing for that.
After crossing Trout Cree.. there
Is an unbroken run lor track for a
very considerable distance before
Telkwa is reached, where there will
bo another hold-up, and then after
that is crossed there are some
bridges across the Bulkley. With
everything going now as it now is
there is no reason for fearing that
before the stopping of work this winter the track will he far into the
interior and but little will remain to
be done next spring.
With the pushing of the line
farther and farther into the Interior
of the province the task of handling
the grading work is being simplified. By means of the railway the
equipment and supplies for the
camp is much easier taken to the
front  and  the    construction    work
HURRY RESULTED

AUTO   OVERTURNED     IN    RUSHING     TO     HOSPITAL     WITH
POISONED  WOMAN.
The Woman May IHe, While One Man
Was Killed and Two Others

Sacramento, June IS.—One man
was killed, a woman was fatally injured and two more men were hurt
here today In an automobile acci-
deul. The machine overturned while
engaged in rushing a woman who
had taken poison to a hospital.
A Surprise . nrty.
.1. A. Kirkpatrlck ol' iliis city was
given a most agreeable surprise yesterday morning when the Grand
Trunk Pacific steamer Prince
George docked. From force Of habit
from Hit- good old Rupert Road days
when everybody quit work and went
down to nieel the incoming boat, he
wandered down to the wharf with
no particular purpose in view, when
to his surprise he discovered his
aged mother on board. She had
made the trip from her home in
Nova Scotia without acquainting him
with the fact that she was coining
and arrived without any warning.
Mrs. .1. A. Kirkpatrlck anil family
are spending the holidays in the
south, .Mrs. Kirkpatrlck; si-., will
spend some time here and then
make a trip to Vancouver Island to
spend the remainder of the holiday
there.

south yesterday.
moves forward all the easier. From
both ends of the road there are supplies being taken in constantly, so
that there is no likelihood from now
on of any shortage in any line. The
equipment is all being centralized
also on the last sections of the road
which means that there will be a
greater expedition in the completion
of the work there.
KITSUMKALUM
SILVERPROPERTY
SAMPLES OF   ORE    FROM PROSPECTS NEAR THE LAKE APPEAR  RICH.
3. A. Kirkpatrlck Is steadily Developing What  Promises to Re
Valuable   Mine.
There was brought to the city yesterday from up the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific quite a bulky collection of samples from the silver
proposition that J, A. Kirkpatrlck
has been developing near Kitsum-
kalum Lake. For a considerable time
there has been known to be good
prospects in that part of the district
In a mining way. Mr. Kirkpatrlck
has been the most industrious in the
development work, however, and has
shown his faith by keeping a small
force of men at work 'there for
months.
The samples have been examined
by practical mining men since they
arrived in the city and they pronounce them excellent. Mining men
say that if there is the quantity the
proposition is a record-maker, for
the quality is certainly of the best.
The property is about fifteen miles
from the head of Kitsumkalum Lake
and has the advantage of being conveniently situated as far as the roads
are concerned, ihere is, in fact, very
good connection by road with the
mine and the getting in of supplies
has been therefore simplified.
RACE FOR AMERICAN CUP
Belfast, June 18.—The Ulster Yacht Club has    accepted
New  York Yacht Club's sailing arrangements and rules    for
the
the
Lipton challenger for the America Cup. This means a race for the
cup will take place next year.

Rosenthal Witness Attacked in New
York Not Dangerously Wounded
—Investigation  Under Wny.
New York, June 18.—"Bridgie"
Webber, the Rosenthal case witness,
who was stabbed a few days ago
and taken to a hospital suffering
from weakness through the loss of
blood, is believed to be well on the
road to recovery. His wound, which
is in the back and was inflicted, according to "Bridgie," by a boy who
slipped up behind him,-is only about
an inch deep and no serious results
from it are anticipated.
In view of threats that were reported to have been made against
witnesses for the state in the
Becker trial a rigid investigation of
the attack on Webber is being made
by the police.
AGAIN  ON  STAGE.
Evelyn Thaw Has Made   Re-appearance Before the Footlights in
London.
Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, in London, in
the Hippodrome Revue, "Hullo Ragtime," made her first publicly advertised stage appearance since Harry
Kendall Thaw shot and killed Stanford White in 1906.
Billed on the programme as Evelyn Nesbit, the former American
chorus girl had no lines to speak,
her only act being a tango dance with
Jack Clifford. The house was filled,
but the applause for Mrs. Thaw was
perfunctory.

London, June 18.—The Marconi
debate on the report of the Parliamentary Committee has begun. It is
stated that it may result in the
overthrow of the Asquith administration.
A vote of censure on Attorney-
General Isaacs and Chancellor Lloyd
George has been moved by the
Unionist members.
The finding of the Marconi Committee of the House proves to have
been a party verdict only. It is a
report of the Liberal majority, but
not of the whole majority.
The chairman  Is    said    to  have
favored and prepared a report acquitting the ministers of corrupt
practice or motive, but charging
them with indiscretion and with concealment of the facts.
The Liberal press has been divided
on the question, one of the leading
papers of the party admitting that
ministers have been glaringly Indiscreet in dealing as they did in Marconi shares.

their holdings in American  Marconi,
and  their implied  denial  that they

AFTER    THE    EXCITEMENT.
It is easy to believe that Sir Wilfrid Laurier is not altogether satisfied with the part he. played in the
recent naval controversy. From
statements in the eastern press it
appears that tilings are not going
smoothly In the Liberal parly. A
large number of those within the
ranks are displeased at the apparent
sympathy of interests that exists
wiib the Nationalists, a sympathy
towards which the altitude on the
Naval Bill gave some color of belief. There is a disposition to blame
the Liberal leader for arousing suspicions thai many of his followers
are only too anxious to disclaim. It
is even rumored that Sir Wilfrid in
order to justify his stand on ihe
naval question will during the coming months undertake a speech-making lour of the English-speaking
j.Tovinces in the hope of rehabilitating his credit with Ihe electorate.
Should such prove to be his intention, it is very unlikely to have the
effect for which he holies. The only
result we can foresee of such a mission is the still further submergence
in the whirlpool of party politics of
a high Imperial issue. That is a development that should not be fostered. There has already been altogether too much party strife in this
country over the naval defence of
the Empire. All those who have the
lasting good of the Dominion at
heart will hope that in future when
a question of high Imperial moment
is being discussed in Parliament
there will be no such display of bitter partisanship as we have been
treated to during Hie pasl session.
,Stefansson's co-worker on his last
expedition, will be second in command, and upon the arrival of the
expedition in the north will' take
charge of  the  southern  party.
The scientific staff will consist of
fifteen persons, including Mr.
Stefansson and Dr. Anderson. The
Canadian geological survey has detailed four men to accompany the
expedition. George Malloch, a specialist, in coal deposits and stratography;
J. J. O'Neill, mining geologist and a
specialist in copper deposits; and
Kenneth Chapman and .1. R. Cox,
topographers. One of the main objects of the expedition is oceanography, which Includes the investigations of tides, currents, the depth
and character oi the sea-bed at different points, the temperature,
chemical composition and vegetable
and animal life of the waters of the
North  Pacific and the Arctic.
The man In charge of this important work is Mr. James Murray,
of Glasgow, who is one of the most
authoritative oceanographers of tho
world. Mr. Murray was biologist with
the Shackleton Antarctic expedition.
Since then he has acted as a biologist
in the boundary survey of Colombia,
South America. Fritz Johansen is a
specialist in the study of fishes. He
was a member of the Myllus Erich-
sen expedition which completed the
mapping of Greenland. There will be
two anthropologists among the members of the party. The one, Henri
Beauchat, is a specialist in his particular line, being Hie proud possessor of a prize from a French academy of science for u work written
on American archaeology. The other
anthropologist is Dr. D. Jennes, an
Englishman. The work In terrestrial
magnetism will be in charge of Mr,
VV, T. McKinley, a graduate of the
University of Glasgow, a physicist
by profession, who recently underwent special training in the Dominion Meteorological Observatory
at Toronto. The surgeon of the expedition will be Dr. A. Forbes Mackay, M.D., of Edinburgh, for some
years surgeon in the British navy
and later surgeon of Shackleton's expedition. Of recent years he has
made some good journeys of his
own, exploring a part of Central
Asia.
One of the most important things
to be attempted is to faithfully
chronicle the events of the expedition by cinematograph, showing the
life of ihe natives. The man selected
to take charge of the moving picture
camera is Mr. George Wilkins, a
cinematograph expert, who has been
spending much lime following the
Turkish and Balkan armies in tho
recent war.

(Contliued From Page One)
the water which brings fertility and
wealth to the wonderful natural
soils from which spring the crops
which have become renowned the
world over.
But the timber products themselves are going out of the province
in lumber; they are giving labor to
thousands upon thousands of men
here, and building up the prairie,
from which so great a proportion of
the wealth of the east is derived.
Without the vast forest wealth of
British Columbia it would be impossible to build up the great farming
areas on the other side of the
Rockies.
The average citizen of British Columbia has a much greater interest
than all this, however, in the great
forests of which lie is part owner
and administrator, in co-operation
with the progressive hundreds of
thousands who are making this Oreal
Last West the mighty and potent factor in the nation's prosperity. In the
past, seven years enough money has
been paid Into the Provincial Treasury in the form of fees, license returns and royalties to pay for all the
roads, bridges and wharves which
have been constructed In thai time,
Today one dollar out of every four
which comes into the public coffer
is the product of the forest. Greater
even than the value of the agricultural products is thai of the timber
which is manufactured within the
province inio lumber, pulp and othei
wood  products.
It is plainly evident, therefore. I
that to maintain the prosperity of j
the Province it is necessary to maintain the forest resource, This resource is subject to one of the greatest dangers In the world, the danger
which brings havoc into towns, j
cities, and settled communities,
which mounts into the hundreds of I
millions every year, And the forest
has no protection such us have the1
buildings in the great cities. When;
ihe great enemy—fire—breaks out
In the forest there is practically nothing to Impede its progress or check
its work of devastation save favorable climatic conditions or some peculiar configuration of the ground.
The trees stand close together; if
one tree goes the one next it will
go; fire reaches up from the ground,
gets into the crowns, and then
sweeps over mountains and valleys
without any possibility of being
checked. In the cities there are fire
patrols, some of them on motor
trucks which can speed as high as
sixty miles an hour. In Ihe forest,
on ihe other hand, there may he no
one to see the fire until days after
It has begun. The gospel of an ounce
of prevention being better than n
pound of cure applies so thoroughly
to the forest that every effort which
is being made, and should bo made
in the future, should look to (he
early extinguishing of the fire before ii attains a size which renders
ii  Impossible to put out.
The causes of ihe vast proportion
of forest fires today are in the
carelessness of people who have fires
and do inn properly extinguish
them. According to Ihe report of the
chief forester for the past year, over
To per rent, of ihe blazes which
originated in other ways than from
lighting were from sheer carelessness on the part of campers, brush
burners, land Hearers, etc. There
were a great 11111111)01- of conflagrations traceable, it is true, to railways whose lines were nol cleared of
brush, and sparks from Ihe passing
engines sel blazes In tiie debris by
tho right-of-way With disastrous ro-
sulis to the surrounding timber.
There an- numerous methods devised by ihe Provincial Forest
Branch authorities to prevent and
extinguish foresl fires. There were
employed last, summer over 150 foresl rangers, whose sole duly was to
safeguard the standing timber and

which will wipe out more value in
timber than would buy the province |
cigarettes for the next fifty years;
a iittle carelessness with brush burning may occasion a fire which will
burn up more than the cleared lam'
of the whole valley will produce
the life-time of him who neglected
his blaze; a hole punched in a donkey stack, or neglect in the use of
fire pans might consume the money
which would be devoted to logging
machinery for that timber district
for the next generation; an uncared
for camp fire—and this is the greatest source of danger of all—may
bum away in the ground and finally
blaze ii|i in a mighty conflagration
which will sweep away more wealth
than would be produced by all tl
mines which the careless camper nr
prospector might uncover in all his
gold seeking days.
If the average citizen will give his
moral support to all the activities of
the Government in its efforts to put
out fires; will work hand in hand
witli the district forest officers and
respond quickly when the call comes
for assistance to a fire, he will build
far more broadly and securely than
he imagines the basis of prosper!r
for himself, for (lie people in his
community and for the coming generation. There devolves upon every
man in the province a duty to Pi;

SI. Klius,
Among those who sailed north on
the Princess May on her last trip
was .1. D. Craig, of Ottawa, of the
Alaska boundary survey party. Ik-
has gone in to take part in what is
expected to be the last season tor the
work. .Mr. Craig had expected while
here to meet .Mr. Ogilvie, who has
charge of the sea end of the lion Hilary north of here, but Mr. Ogilvie
was out of the city at the time.
"This season will probably witness
the completion of the survey of the
Alaska boundary line along the
141st meridian from Mount St. Elias
to the Arctic Ocean, separating Alaska from the Yukon territory. Tiie
work all the way from the Yukon
to the Arctic was finished last year.
The last gap no. being covered by
parties reprr . ntiug the United States
and Dominion governments is only
Sn miles long. It extends through
ihe While River and Chitlna River
districts,"  said   Mr.   Craig.
Thomas Riggs, jr., of Washington,
D.C., representing the United states
government, will mem Mr. Craig in
the north, and together they will
jointly Inspect the progress of Hie
work in Hie uncompleted gap which
embraces a mountainous region covered willi glaciers. Later they will
proceed into tlie Chitlna River
country, the section nearest lo
.Mount St. Elias. They will bring in
additional horses to replace any that
may have perished owing to tin-
strenuous work of packing supplies
for Hie engineers now in Hie field.
If the work makes good progress
an attempt will be made 10 scale the I
northern summit of .Mount st. Ellas
from the northern slope. The mountain is traversed by the 111st meridian, it was climbed auoul ten years
ago by Ihe Duke d'Abriizzi, a

850,000 cases. The run is expected
to start early next month. The biggest catch in Puget Sound will probably be from July 20 to 25. The
humpback run will be unusually
large this year, and canners are
making preparations for this catch,
in addition to the sockeye pack.
Paget Sound canneries will not
make a business of packing chums
this year, as the. bottom has fallen
odt of the market, and prices are
so low that packers say It Is a loss
to pack them. Only the chums that
como In with the other fish will be
packed Ibis season. The retail market
on chums at the present, time is two
pounds for 15 cents. Little has been
heard of Alaska grading the fishing
in the north. One report to local offices of the Northwestern Fisheries
Company, at Orca, says that a good
run of reds had started. This plant
began operations on May 8.
A reduction in the packs of pinks
and medium reds is expected in Alaska this year, and this will tend to
offset the larger Paget Sound packs.

EMPRESS  OF  ASIA   SAILS.
Within seven days after the completion of a round-the-world tour by
the Empress of Russia, her sister
ship, the Empress of Asia, on her
maiden trip, has left Liverpool with
an even larger number of tourists on
board than was carried by her predecessor. The Empress of Asia is the
exact duplicate of the Empress of
Russia, with the lone exception that
her interior fittings and decorations
are in the old English style, whereas
the style of decoration followed on
the Empress of Russia was French.
The Empress of Asia and her sister
ship, the Empress of Russia, will be
by far the largest passenger steamships plying the Pacific. This route
has hitherto been served chiefly by
steamers of about 6000 gross tons
register. The Empress of Asia has a
gross tonnage of 10,S50 tons, while
her length and breadth are 590 feet
and 6S feet, respectively. It will thus
be seen that the Canadian Pacific
Company has made a great advance
upon its past achievements, in so fains the size and capacity are concerned. Indeed, it is acknowledged
on all sides thai the new vessels
are far and away tbe finest in point
of tonnage and equipment that have
yet appeared lo form another link
in the ocean services which hind the
two continents on either side of Ihe
Pacific.
PROTECTION   STEAMER.
The new Dominion fisheries protection cruiser, the Fispa, has had a
trial spin on the Fraser River, and
it is believed that there is no better
vessel of its kind in British Columbia. She has excellent lines and is of [
very attractive appearance, while 30
knots an hour can be got from her
96-horse-power engines when they
are tuned up. Her decks and the
chart-house are of teak and all the
wood finishes are of the same prized
timber, while the rails are of fir. In
the chart-house are the very latest
instruments and mounted above is a
very powerful searchlight. Besides
the stateroom for the captain, there
are two staterooms for the fisheries
inspectors or other officers of the
Government; there is a dining-room
forward and in the crew's quarters
there will be accommodation for six
or eight. The launch Is heated by
olectric power and the electricity is
generated by a separate engine from
tho two big engines. She is S1 feet
long with 14 feet beam and a draft
of .1 feet 6 Inches, and has been
built at New Westminster Marine

IMIJIUCARIA ARRIVES,
When   the  alxty-flve-ton    trawler
I mini. tir:;:. Cat tain II. ('. Robinson,
arrived in Vancouver from South
Africa she completed what is stated
to be tho longest passage ever accomplished by a \essel of her she,
says the News-Advertiser. The traw'-j
or is owned by the British Columbia
Fisheries, Ltd., and was formerly
employed in the fishing business off
the coast of Africa. She will go into
ihe fishing business off the British
Columbia coast, site has experienced
a pretty severe battering on her voy-
age from Durham. Others of the
Doughty trawlers have come out
item Grimsby via the Straits of
.Magellan. The Imbriearla was sent
first to South Africa, where she carried out. six months' fishing experiments. There is very little accommodation on the trawler, and the
crew had to take turns in using the
bunks. The voyage has been accompanied  by  many  hardships, and
The largest steamship afloat, the
Imperator, of the -Hamburg-American line, is now well on her voyage.
The great liner is not only the largest ship in the world, but establishes
new standards by the completeness
of her mechanical equipment, her
safety devices, and the variety and
luxury of her cabins. The Imperator
Is built with an inner skin, with
both longitudinal and transverse
bulkheads and other feat- res. Taking advantage of her gri a I dimensions, the ship's publh cabins and
staterooms have been made so large
as to avoid any suggestion of crowding, rhe Imperator is the latest addition to the fleet of the Hamburg-
American Line, the largest steamship
company in the world, which profits
by an experience of sixty-seven years
in directing its services in all parts
of the world.
The Imperator measures 919 feet
in length, or almost one-fifth of a
mile, 98 feet in width, or that of a
great boulevard, and has a tonnage
of 50,000. Her powerful quadruple
turbine engines drive her at an average speed of 22 1-2 knots an hour,
crossing the Atlantic in six days. She
carries a crew of 1180, selected for
their long service on other ships of
tiie line. The rigid discipline for
which this service is famous obtains
:'n every department. Despite her
great size, the Imperator carries only
a few more passengers than ships of
naif her tonnage, assuring complete
comfort of all on board.
No liotel on either side of the Atlantic offers its guests so great a
choice of dining-rooms, ballrooms,
grill-rooms, smoking-rooms, gymnasiums, roof gardens, public baths
and luxurious lounges. The leading
decorators of Europe have been entrusted with the decorations of the
Imperator's cabins, and each is a
masterpiece in its individual style.
The great size of the Imperator ha-
made it possible to give her some
of the most spacious rooms ever
enjoyed on shipboard. The main
lounge, which may be converted into
a ball-room, is hung with Gobelin
tapestries and equipped with a practical stage for theatrical performances. An unusual amount of space
has been set aside for an elaborate
winter garden, with a wealth of
tropical vegetation.
There is a running track, an
elaborate Roman bath and swimming
pool, and a variety of Russian, mineral and electric baths with skilled
attendants, a florist, randy and book
shop, a public stenographer, a photographic dark room, electric elevators, and every conceivable appointment to assure luxury and variety
throughout the Atlantic crossing.
The Imperator has been constructed with sixteen steel bulkheads,
forming in all thirty-six watertight
compartments. These are still further
subdivided by the steel decks, giving
the ship a cellular construction
throughout. The bulkheads have
been carried to the level of the
second deck, high above the water-
line. A single bulkhead weighs 1200
cwt. These steel compartments have
been completely flooded with water
to test their efficiency under extreme conditions. The bulkheads are
fitted with Dorrscher doors and closing appliances operated hydraulical-
ly from the commander's bridge,
while a second appliance operated
from the upper deck is held In re-
servo.
The Imperator carries eighty-three
largo lifeboats of the most approved
type, accommodating everyone on
board.
