LIFE HISTORY OF
PACIFIC SALMON
Dr. Gilbert and J. P. Babcock Return
From Visit To Queen Charlotte
Islands Where Investigations Were
Held  For Scientific   Information
Dr. Gilbert, professor of zoology
in Stanford University, accompanied
by J. P. Babcock, the fishery expert
of the Provincial Government, returned from the Queen Charlottes on
Dominion Day. Dr. Gilbert will go
south, while Mr. Babcock has left for
the Naas and other points to investigate the fishing conditions. The visit
of Dr. Gilbert Is for the purpose of
studying the life history of the salmon, a work he was engaged in last
season also. On the Queen Charlottes
he was able to gather some important
data.
Dr. Gilbert, together with Mr.
Babcock, is convinced that the life
history of the sockeye salmon extends
over four years normally, or five
years at the longest. Last year, as a
result of his investigations he contributed to the annual report of the
CHILDREN'S GAMES

Chief Vickers Played Important Part
In Arranging for a Programme
of Sports.
W. H. Vickers, chief of police, as
usual saw to it that the younger element in the city were not deprived
of their usual Dominion Day sports.
He made a collection for the purpose
and arranged for a series of events
on July 1. Unfortunately there came
a shower just at the time that the
sports were to be put on and it was
decided to postpone them for a day.
The programme was carried out yesterday with Chief Vickers as chief in
command and a small committee assisting. Some interesting events were
held.
The results of the various running
events were as follows:
Boys under (i—1 Elwood Stephens; 2, George McKleve; 3, A. B.
Kauffman.
Girls under 6—1, Grace Lofquist;
2, Doris Shockley; 3, Margaret Kergin.

Provincial Fishery Department an
article on this subject. Extracts from
that chapter of the report are as follows:
Prior to 1910, when the writer
first developed the method of determining the age of Pacific salmon
by the seasonal grouping of the delicate rings marking the surface of the
scales it had been generally accepted that Fraser River sockeye mature
invariably in their fourth year. This
theory was based on the well-known
fact that very heavy runs enter the
fraser every fourth year, with much
lighter runs in the intervening years,
a condition which has existed as far
back as we have any definite
records. The theory of a four-year
cycle for the sockeye seemed, therefore, well founded, and it became
a matter of extraordinary interest to
test the theory by independently determining the age of a number of
individuals belonging to the spawn
ing run.
On doing this, it became at once
apparent that the majority were four
years old and hence in accord with
the theory. But the smallest mem
bers of the run (almost invariably
males) were but three years old,
while a considerable number of the

KILL OUT WEEKS.
Agricultural  Department    Sends Out
Request to Fanners and Others
to Do Effective Work.
The following circular letter to
editors of newspapers in British Columbia has been sent out by the
deputy minister of agriculture and is
self-explanatory:
Dear Sir,—I would be obliged if
you would kindly allow me, through
the medium of your paper, to call
the attention of fanners throughout
the province to the necessity of conducting a vigorous campaign against
the spread of noxious weeds in the
province. This constitutes a grave
menace to the development of agriculture, and it is very essential that
a determined effort be made at the
present time to combat the evil be
fore il gets too big to handle. It is
deplorable to see in many good agricultural districts in the province the
alarming extent to which the Canadian thistle has spread. This is one
of the very worst weeds In existence
and probably the hardest to control.
The following course of treatment
which should be pursued for the
eradication of Canadian thistle is
recommended by the seed commissioner's branch of the federal department of agriculture:
Remedy.—Being a deep-rooted perennial, Canada thistle should be
ploughed deep in summer just as the
flowers open, or the flowering stems
may be mowed down and the land
ploughed as soon as the new stem
growth appears. As new stems are
thrown up they must be cut off with
a broad-sheared cultivator, at inter-

The arrival yesterday by the Prince
George of A. A. Cox, the architect
for the Provincial Government buildings here, revives the interest in this
great undertaking. Mr. Cox has come
to Prince Rupert at this time for the
purpose of making the final arrangements for the excavations of
the building, which will be one of
the most imposing in the province
outside of the two great centres of
Victoria and Vancouver. He will give
exact Instructions as to the rock excavations  that  are   to  be  made  on

CASH ONLY
my
On mid after July 1, 1918, I have decided to    place
business upon a Cash basis, mid  desire your assistance.
I appreciate the business you have given me in the past,
either for cash or on credit, but there are so many who
hove abused the confidence I huve extended to thein that I
mil compelled to take this action.
The loss of money and the trouble and time in looking
after these numerous small accounts is more than the profit
on this kind of business.
Thanking yon for the business  you  have  given me and
trusting that my action will in no way inconvenience you and
that I will still continue to have the benefit of your business
and assistance.

the magnificent site of the building, the Market Place.
The buildings that are to accommodate the courts and the various
Government officials will, as previously announced, be of brick and be
two storeys in height, with a commodious basement. While all the details are not yet made known by
the architect, enough is known to assure the public that It will be on a
most comprehensive plan. The building, which will cost in the vicinity
of half a million dollars, will, it is
expected according to the present
design, take in practically all the
space within the inner street way
which circles about the Market Place.
Provision is made also for the
beautifying of the park triangles in
front of the site between il nnd McBride Street. All this is included In
the design that Is being advanced and
with that goes also the grading of
the street about the place.
When completed the city will have
one of the most Imposing edifices
that It is possible to conceive of am!
situated in a position which will always make It a distinctive mark of
the townsite.
The queston of the material that
is to be used in the construction of
the building will receive at the hands
of Air. Cox attention on this visit.
He has had submitted for his con-
eration several samples drawn from
local sources. These he will examine
thoroughly from the local standpoint
and he will also examine the location where the rock samples are
taken from so as to satisfy himself
as to the available supply In case the
sample may be found to be satisfactory for the building.
The arrangements for the street
work which are to be made with the
city are now under final considera
tion at Victoria and a reply by wire
is expected today, when the agreement between the two parties will be
entered Into and a start made upon
the excavation of the site for the
building, together with the street
grading, which works in with the
other.
In conjunction with the plans for
the location there are several features planned which will, if finally
approved by the city and the other
parties concerned, make the location
one of the most striking to be found
on the Coast. Air. Cox is not planning
the building alone for the present.
He is looking far into the future
and designing the layout so Hint
there may be nothing to undo as
time goes by. He realizes that the
building that is to be erected on
the location that has been selected
will have a material effect upon the
business of the city and is planning
so thai tiie courthouse may have no
drawbacks that will militate against
it as t.li*? surrounding blocks are
built upon.
It is Hie design of the Governmenl
to lose no time in getting the building In shape to occupy. Il ii felt that
there is no time to be lost in having
a structure that will accommodate
the great Increase in business that
will come from now on in the city in
view of the near approach of the railway as a completed proposition. In
view of this, therefore, there will be
a very considerable force of men
employed constantly to get nil the
necessary work done | reparatory to
actual construction
ment to avoid all chance of any injury to such a costly building from
later blasting. It is for that reason
that It has been thought best to put
the road about the site in shape now.

STOKING FIRES
OF REBELLION
LADY SYBIL SMITH    SEES    DAN-
GEROliS POSITION FOR BRITISH GOVERNMENT VOW.
The excursion lo Hazelton on
Tuesday was patronized by a very
considerable number and the best of
accommodation in the way of rolling
stock was provided by the Grand
Trunk Pacific. At Hazelton, however,
the excursionists encountered the
worst of weather. A downpour of
rain lasted all afternoon. This interfered with the sports, and the Prince
Rupert baseball team, unaccustomed
to such weather conditions, was easily defeated In a five-inning game.
The score was as follows:
Hazelton     ,'f   f>   2   0—HI
Prince Rupert 1   -I   1   0— 6
At football the local Caledonians
did better, holding the home team
down to a tie, with two goals each.
A dance was given in the evening.
On the way back to Prince Rupert a
mishap to the locomotive made it
necessary to hold the train over for
a long time while another engine
was sent to the scene. The excursionists, therefore, did not reach Prince
Rupert until about 8 o'clock yesterday morning.

SEEKING A  REASON.
In dealing with the financial situation of the day there is a general
tendency to attack the banks for not
doing what it is claimed they might
do to aid the public, it is urged very
frequently that Canadian banks are
holding back money, refusing il especially to real estate holders or buyers in the West, while they are using
the funds for call loans abroad. On
this point the News-Advertiser says
that the -May returns showed that
this was not happening down to the
end of last  month.
The silnation was this: Canadian
banks had loaned $060,000,000 at
home and $134 000,000 abroad. Of
the advances abroad, ♦1)0,000,000
was in call loans. It was not Canadian money, because *ai ,000,000
had been received by Canadian banks
in outside deposits, including current loans Canadian banks had loaned abroad some $37,000,000, thai
had been deposited or otherwise contained iii Canada. This is less than
four per cent, of total loans. Compared with last year at the same time
the Canadian banks had $15,000,000
less money loaned abroad; nearly
$20,000,000 less loaned abroad" on
call,' while the banks held $20,000,-
000 more of outside money on deposit. The banks could answer the
charge that they had taken Canadian
money for call loans In the States
by producing these figures.
tf they were asked why they were
refusing money to Canadians they
mighl point to the returns showing
advances of $969,000,000 to the Canadian people, or $60,000,000 more
than this time last year, while the
people of Canada had on deposit In
the banks $7,000,000 less than last
year. They could say ihai the banks
had kept In reserve to meet demands of depositors and noteholders nnd to satisfy the law less money
than they had al this time last year,
or the year before, or I ban they usually keep.
But If bankers are challenged to
tell why the Canadian people ask for
more nione ythis year, and produce
more money this year, and produce
the Held of speculative philosophy,
like the rest of us. We suspeci that
it is largely a psychological question.

Wllil. SOON RBSUME.
Such satisfactory progress is being
made in connection with repairs lo
the Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Prince Albert that the British Columbia Marine Railway Company expects to bo in a position to deliver
the  vessel   by   the     middle    of  Ibis
 nib.  Providing the  Prince Albert
is  delivered   as     expected     by    the
middle of July the temporarily sus-i
pended service between Victoria and
the Queen  Charlotte Islands will  be|
resumed  without  delay, and    unless j
the present arrangements miscarry it i
is altogether probable that the Prince
.\lbert. will take the usual Thursday
sailing on  July  IV.
Since the Albert went on the reef
nt Porl Simpson harbor, the steamer
Prince John has been maintaining
the Queen Charlotte service by making connections with the regular
Prince steamers nt Prince Rupert. As
soon as it is definitely decided thai
the Albert will resume the northernl
run, the Prince John will be dispatched south lor the first time in |
several weeks to again take up the
running. With the bookings daily
increasing to points in the Queen
Charlottes, the Grand Trunk Pacific
expect to do a large business on the
new route this summer.

BAYLEY LOST.
Vancouver, July 2.—Frenchie
Vaise, of Seattle, won the lightweight
championship of Canada yesterday
from Joe Bayley, of Victoria, getting
the decision in the fifteenth round
on points.
Speaking of the situation a few
days before the fight, the sporting
editor of the News-Advertiser summed  up the situation as follows:
Joe Bayley, Canada's    lightweight
champion,    should  be a top    heavy
favorite  when  he steps  through  the
ropes for his scheduled fifteen-round
bout  with  Frenchy Vaise at the new
Brighouse Arena  on  Tuesday    next,
land    without     disparaging    Vaise's
chances  or overestimating   Bayley's
: ability   we   may   add   that   the   odds
appear justified.   If -it   were over n
j short   route   of,   say,   four     or     six
: rounds Vaise would be an even choice
j with the champion, but over what we
i may term the marathon route up this
way Vaise's chances diminish     with
every additional round. He is a game,
willing and aggressive boy, more of a
welterweight than a lightweight, am!
i chucltful  of confidence any time he
! starts.   He  is  a  rangy  boy  and  can
j take  lots     of  punishment     without
I backing up. bul so far lie has failed
I to show a punch    himself.    Bayley
I lacks this essential, but he can take
, hard punches and does a lo! of dam
| age   to  any  one  who   can't  land   on
him and lie's too shifty for Vaise over
fifteen   rounds.  The  bout  should  go
the distance unless we are furnished
with  a surprise.    Vaise and  Bayley
are on a par with regards to punching  ability,   but   Bayley     likes     the
longer route, and if the first mutch
between the pair can be accepted as
any criterion Vaise will be tiring after  the  fourth   round,  while  Bayley
will he coming into his own.
Both boys are in perfect condition for the contest. Bayley never
did approach  the  133-pound   not th.

With net earnings of only $125,-

three-week itinerary and the allowance of one mouth a year for overhauling the ship would give a margin
of over $1,250,000 to meet interest

larger fish were unmistakably in
their fiftli year. In view of these
facts it became important to inquire
how the predominance of every
fourth year had been so long maintained. For if the progeny of a big
years should mature and return to
ihe river partly in three, partly in
four, and partly in five years, it
would seem there should be a ten-
dency to increase ihe runs in the
third -ind fifth years of the cycle, as
well as to maintain that of the fourth
year; and as this tendency would be
constantly operative and cumulative,
it should eventually distribute the
benefits of Ihe "big years" equally
among the others.
On consideration, however, it becomes obvious that the three-year
fish, or grilse, can be eliminated
from the problem. For Inasmuch as
practically none of these are females
and as the males can be considered
purely supplementary, being of small
size and not needed in the spawning
beds, it is evident they add nothing
to tho progeny of any year in which
they are more than usually numerous.
But the case would appear otherwise with the five-year fish. Among
these, both males and females are
present in not very unequal numbers,
and with these the females average
larger than the four-year females and
produce a greater number of eggs. If,
therefore, any constant percentage of
the progeny of a big year matured
In its fifth rather than its fourth
year, this should have its evident
effect on the fiftli year of the cycle.
Such an effect thus far has not been
determined. It would be impossible
to separate the two ages by their
appearance, for, although the five-
year fish average larger, the two
ages widely overlap in this regard.
An analysis of the run by the aid of
the scales is necessary to decide this
point, and must extend over a number of years until we shall have ascertained whether the proportion ot
the progeny which delay maturing
until the fifth year is a relatively
constant one, or whether it fluctuates
so widely for unknown reasons that
we are unable to predict, the outcome
in any given case. If the proportion
is relatively constant, then we can
predict the run with some assurance
in any year, if we know the success
of natural and artificial propagation in the fourth and fifth years
preceding. But If the proportion varies widely in different years this
would Introduce a disturbing factor
which might bring prophecy to
naught, especially in the years of
small run.
Thus, if 1914, i915, and 1916
.should have approximately equal
runs and should present equally
favorable conditions on the new
spawning-beds and in the hatcheries, nevertheless the corresponding
years of ihe next cycle might from
this cause exhibit very unequal runs.
If, for example, 5 per cent, of the
progeny of 1914, 45 per cent, of
1915, and 20 per cent, of 1916
should mature in their fifth year,
then the run of 1919 would be made
up of 3 per cent, five-year-olds from
1914 and 55 per cent, four-year-
olds from 1915; while the run of
1920 would contain 45 per cent, five-
year-olds from 1915 and 80 per cent,
four-year-olds from 1916. The latter would be more than twice as
large, therefore, as the former. It is
thus highly Important to establish
the constancy of the variability of
the age factor, for to establish this
will bring us one step nearer the
possibility of predicting future runs.
As a contribution to this end, it
was attempted to analyse the run of
1912 Into its age components, and
to compare the results with those secured by the writer In 1911, when
this method was used for the first
time.
in mil the number of three-year-
olds "i- grilse were so small as lo be
almost negligible. No attempl was
made to deti rmlne ihe very limited
proportion  in   which   they  occurred,
as it was difficult to secure enough
specimens for examination. It should
be recalled that the grilse of 1911
were developed in their due proportion from the comparatively few
eggs deposited in the "off-year,"
1908.
in 1912 the case was far different. The grilse of that year were
derived from eggs laid down in the
big year, 1909, and from the first
of the season to . its conclusion,
wherever the Fraser River run was
intercepted, the large number of
small three-year fish was at once
apparent. Several attempts to estimate the proportion of grilse to full-
grown fish were made August 1 to
August 7, by enumerating them as
i hey passed along the conveyor at
ihe cannery of the Pacific American
Fisheries at Bellinghani, Washington.
Other less extensive tests were
made al different localities and at
various times during the season, and
were all in close agreement. It seems
safe to conclude therefore that In the
Fraser River sockeye run of 1912
about one fish out of every five was
a small three-year-old precocious
male. The grilse were thus about
half as numerous as the males of the
full-grown fish.
The causes of the great disparity
shown in 1911 and 1912 In relative
numbers of four- and five-year fish
cannot be assigned with certainty,
but are to be looked for in conditions which existed in 1906 and
1908, the small years of the preceding cycle. The following may be suggested as possibilities:
(lj It is possible that an abnormally large proportion of the 1906
generation may have delayed maturing until their fifth year. Had this
occurred it should have diminished
the size of the run four years subsequently in 1910 and should have materially increased the run of 1911.
It is valid objection to the theory
that 1910 gave an average yield, in
the present condition of the industry,
while 1911 was the poorest for many
years.
(2) An alternative theory is to
the effect that the season of 1907
may have brought to the Fraser
River spawning beds so small a number of sockeyes that their progeny,
which matured part as four-year fish
in 1911 and part as five-year fish in
1912, would both be present in very
limited numbers. This would explain
the heavy percentage of five-year fish
in 1911, as well as the light run of
that year, and would explain the abnormally light run of five-year fish
in 1912. Its influence on the total
size of the run of 1912 would be far
less than in 1911, if, as we suppose,
the total number of five-year fish
produced from any given batch of
eggs is much below the number that
mature in four years. This theory
would then of itself explain all the
facts, without having recourse to the
first suggested above, or to any further hypothesis.

vals during the summer and autumn.
Deep ploughing in the autumn has
been found useful in suppesslng
thistles in Manitoba. The chief safeguard against Canada thistle and
similar deep-rooted perennials Is undoubtedly a regular short rotation
of crops with thorough cultivation.
a three-year rotation, including two
cuttings of early red clover for the
first year, followed by deep fall
ploughing for hoed crops with clean
cultivation and a cereal crop for the
third  will suppress  it.
For permanent pastures and wild
lands where this course of treatment
is not feasible, a plan which is followed by many with great success is
to keep the plants cut right at the
crown and never allow them to
flower. This, of course, if pursued
faithfully will in a few years' lime
destroy this pest.
All provincial constables and fire
wardens have again this year been
appointed agents for the department
In the enforcement of the provisions
of Un- Noxious Weeds Act and have
been instructed in case of non-compliance with notices served on owners, to institute prosecutions. This in
iisolf, however, is nol all thai is
necessary. It is imperative that the
co-operation of the farmers themselves be secured. The provisions of
tne Noxious Weeds Act are stringent
enough, but iis proper enforcement
can not be effected to the best advantage unless the farmers do their
share, and see that their neighbors
take steps to destroy weeds before
they seed. I trust, therefore, that
we may have united action along
these lines, and that effective work
will be done this year towards the
suppression of those weeds which are
proving such a menace to successful
agricultural development In different  parts of tiie province.
