GOVERNMENT
SHOWS STRENGTH
NORTHWEST    DURHAM    W E N T
STRONGLY    LIBERAL    IN
ENGLAND.
Unionists   Willi    Popular   Candidate
Suffered  Severe Defeat
There.
London, Jan. 31.—A decided
declaration In favor of the government was made in the bye-election
In Northwest Durham today. The
election was caused by tho resignation of the sitting Liberal, Atherley
Jones, who accepted a metropolitan
judgeship.
The result of the vote was: A.
-Williams, Liberal, 7241; J. O. Hard-
iclter, Unionist, 5025; G. H. Stuart,
Labor, 1557. The Liberal plurality
over the Unionist of 2116 combined
with the government majority over
the Unionist and the Labor combined has shattered the hopes of the
Unionists.
The Unionist candidate was as
strong a local man as could be
found. He made a strenuous campaign in which the Ulster question
and the nary were put first and with
the help of five or six hundred
Orangemen on the register it was
hoped to carry the vote or run a
close second to the government. The
Unionist'' forces are greatly
heartened by the result.

Joe    Thompson's    Illness    Ends    in
Death at Smithers Hospital on
Monday.
Joseph B. Thompson, of Smithers,
died last Monday morning at Hazel-
ton Hospital, of gill stone:. He had
been seriously ill for some !lme, and
had been removed to the hoepItaJ

says  the Sml(hcr3 Review.
Joe Thompson was of English
birth, and came to the Bulkley Valley in 1906, ta: Ing up land near
Aldermere. His hearty at;;) genial
disposition made him a general
favorite and his untimely death will
be regretted by a host of friends.
He was an OddfelDw and an Eagle.
He leaves a widow, who was with
him in his last illness, and a daughter, who is attending school in Seattle.
The funeral was held in Hazelton
on Thursday afternoon, the Oddfellows of the town furnishing the pallbearers.

The Deceased Wca One  or  Pioneer
Chun* Workers of Uie
Province.
Surviving Dr. Thomas Crosby, his
colleague in Coast Mission work, by
a little more than a fortnight. Rev.
A. E. Green, Inspector of Indian
schools, passed away at l.'v home in
Vancouver a few days ago. He had
been ill for some little time, suf»
fering from an affection of the
heart, and all hope for his recovery
wad given up two weeks ago. Mr.
Green was well known here, visiting
the city in connection, with tlu< Inspection  of Indian schools.
For early fifty yea is Dr. Crosby
and Rev. Mr. Green had carried on
work among the natives together,
their friendship having been begun
47 year.; ago when the older man
was stationed at Port Simpson and
Rev. Mr. Green at the mouth of the
Naae Rive*. Born In TIffleld, Northamptonshire, 63 years ago, Mr. Green
•ante to- America first when he was
16 years old. but returned to his
home again after travelling tor ome
littlo  time  in   the   United   S ttes.
One Sunday men.ing not many
years later he arrived in Victoria, a
stranger, ami appealed for Christian
work among tho Indians. Like Dr.
Crosby, he began his life on this
coast as a school teacher, the first
work assigned him being the instruction of the natives lit New West-
| minster, from which city he later
moved to NanaJmo to take charge of
a similar school there.
His first incumbency as a missionary <5f the Methodist Church
was at the mouth of the Naas River,
some fifty odd nilles north of Prince
Rupert. He remained for thirteen
years, except for an interval of a
year at Port Simpson, where he was
in close intercourse with the pioneer
Methodist missionary of the coast.
Evidence of his work among the Indians In the North and of the love
of the natives for him Is in the number of namesakes he now has among
the Indians.
About ISftO lie started his ministry
among the while settlers In the new
city of Vancouver, his colleague at
that time being the late Rev. Blie-
nezer Robson, pioneer of Vancouver
Methodism. Ten years after lie made
his home in Vancouver, Mr. Green
established the Sixtli Avenue Falr-
\ lew Methodist Church and erected
a building at the corner of Sixth
Avenue and Pine Street. He was also
the first, pastor of a number of other
churches  in  the  Lower  Mainland.
His Health suffering from the
tasks imposed by the building up of
a church in the wilderness of that
time, he asked for superannuation
about ten years ago and for a time
lived in retirement. His health Improved, however, and he was, a year
after his superannuation, appointed
inspector of Indian Schools In the
province, a position for which his
knowledge of the settlements made
him eminently suited. At the time
of his death he was still a member
of the Sixth Avenue .Methodist
Church.
Mr. Green Is survived by his wife,
,..,s.  Green,  two sons,    Walter    of
NEW PROCESS REDUCES THE
PRICE OF RADIUM
If the reports of medical men from all over the world are to '
     e rellei
upon, radium is indeed a panacea for many forms of disease and affile- -I
tion. Forthwith with the announcement of its great curative properties
came the announcement of its scarcity. The price of radium has increased
within the last year from $90,000 to $120,000 per gram. The Bureau of
Mines has just announced the discovery of a new process for the extraction of radium from the carnotite ores, which promises to reduce the
cost of production 50 per cent. The making of radium until this new-
process was discovered by Dr. Richard B. Moore and Karl L. Kithil,
was carried on exclusively In Europe under a secret process. Dr. Richard
B. Moore is the man In white in the above picture.

In connection with the blocking of

to the attention of traveller.' that
the prowsion in the way of catering
on the line was adequate and that
there need be no fears in this connection. The" catering on the tralm

McLean is the efficient manager

provisions on board the dining-car

to run short of what was necessary
to provide for their comfort.
Most of people do not realize what
a system the Canada Railway News
is. It Is very closely identified with
the Grand Trunk Railway system

The first woman judge to be appointed in CanaWa, as far as can be
learned,     is  Mrs.  R.   R.     Jamiesou,
president  of   the   local     Council   of
Women  in  Calgary.     Mrs.  Jamiesou
has  recently  been  appointed  by  the
attorney-general  to  be commissioner
of  the Juvenile    Court  In  Calgary.
She will  have the same power as a
police  magistrate and  judge of the
district court, but will try only cases
where the accused is under eighteen
years of age.     Mrs.  Jamiesou  commenced her judicial duties this week.
As president of the Calgary Council
of  Women,  Mrs.  Jamiesou  lias  doi e
some splendid  work in  thai  city, a
fact which iias evidently been recognized  by  the attorney-general.     The
inauguration  of a, local    council  in
Calgary    a  little over a  year
marked an epoch in the work of the
woms n  ol   tl »:   city.  Mi s   Jamleson

guided   tile  new  societj   .-
fully that It is now one of the largest councils  in    Canada,    having  a
membership of over 3000 women.
Mrs. Jamiesou has been an active
worker in the council and has also
taken a keen interest in the child
welfare and civic betterment work.
The work that has been done by this
new council under her direction
would do credit to many older
bodies. In the year of its existence
it has established a permanent social service department, which has
been most energetic In its efforts to
make the city better and cleaner,
This committee has kept a dose
supervision over the moving picture
shows, the dance halls and the bill
boards and is now about to take up
the  suffrage  question.
Their   law-   committee    petitioned
the city council  to allow   «omi n  to
sit on  the school  board:   to appoint.
a police matron, and als:. to appoint i
women to the police force. As a result their city has now a woman on

that Mr. Allison, the Offii I ! In it 16-

in the province. He bad a thorough
training In finance before entering
the Government ervloe and is recognized as eminently fitted to fill the
position that he Is now occupying in
epite of the crltl ism offered by the
local editor. H;id some of three editorial criths the experience in their
own line that men like Mr. Alliron
have had in theirs, there would not
be the same readiness to rush into
the field of criticism.

was the promise mnde by oil" Richard MeBrlde al the meeting of delegates to the Farmers' Institute,
which assembled foi the flfteentta annual convention at the Empress Hotel  in  Victoria  this week.
The Premier expressed the hope
Hun a strong agricultural movement
will be created throughout the province anil he .-aid thai nothing was
more calculated to inspire such a
movement than Hie inauguration of
agricultural classes in connection
With the regular university studies
and supplementing the ordinary academic courses.
in the course of his address to
tho delegates the  Premier said:
"We have had in commission for
scleral months a Royal Commission
on Agriculture and in a Few weeks'
time we expect to receive their report, as a result of which we hope
to be able at the next session of the
legislature to bring down legislation
of a most comprehensive character.
We want the farmers of the country
to enjoy the best possible opportunities of developing the agricultural
industry because, we.realize what the
development means to the province
as a whole. We have been pioneering
for forty years and I think the time
is ripe for an organized movement
for the improvement of the agricultural  conditions of  the country.
"I  would  like to inform    you at
this time that the plans for the opening of the provincial university continue  without  abatement.    There  Is
no class in the province more interested   in   the  university    than     the
farmers  and   it   is  with     particular
pleasure  that  I  am  in  a  position  to
say   to   you   this   afternoon   that   we
have decided  upon the fall of 1915
for i lie opening of the doors of that
institution to our student population.
"One of the ambitions of the gov-
ernlng  body   of  the  university   and
the Government as well is that, co-
Incidental   with   the  opening  of  the
icadi mle   course,     an     agi (cultural

something of a now  venture on ilie I
pari   of  the company,  the  worn  being done with the concurrence of the]
brand  Trunk  Pacific    and    supplementing  the  system   of  lioicls   that ,
the railway company operates.
In the same way there has been
a departure In some ways from tne
usual line at Ibis end, where the
Canada Railway News has been assigned the duty of catering on the
trains running out of here. The position that Mr. McLean occupies is
one of great responsibility. He takes
control of the local news stand, the
news services on the trains, the
restaurant and lunch counter here
in what was the G.T.P. Inn, the
lunch rooms at Pacific, the first divisional point on the railway east of
here, and the serving of meals on
the trains running out of here. Mr.
McLean is an experienced man anil
served for years as a dining-car conductor before he became identified
with the company with which he is
now serving. Always pleasant and
genial, ho nevertheless keeps tlie
most careful watch upon all the details of his work. Selected for this
point by his company, there is no
question that he has been well tried
out before this position was assigned
him. A visit to his office in the

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
BRITISH TRADE HAS
BEEN VERY ACTIVE,
THE     PAST  VK.il!     HAS    SHOWN
PROSPERITY'   IX   MOST  ol
LINES.
Ii l> Expected That the Coming Sen-!
son Will Be Similarly
Prosperous,
During the past couple of weeks
British ti'ade and commerce has
been thoroughly active and in retrospect il can he seen, more fully even
than it was fell at the time, that
1913 has been added to the sequence
of three or four years of prosperity,
even booming trade. It may be some-
whai early In the year to forecast
the probabilities of 1914, but careful Investigation in the last few days
goes to show that, In the opinion
of the bin men and firms, 191 I
should  in   leasi   prove equally good.
The shipping business is one t r
the most valuable indications of the
condition of trade and the read of
one of the greatest shipping firms
in   the   world   said:
"Pui tiim aside the unforeseeabh
troubles of a strike, the year 1914
promises to be even inner [ban last
year. There may be the appearance
of a slump ai the moment, but it Is
not real. The very small men complain, but the big firms are confident
as to the future. We are refusing to
abate our freight rates a jot. We refuse all applications for a reduction
of freights and are renewing contracts at tne same rales as in 1913
and making five and ten year contracts at these rates. Excluuing
labor troubles, in dealing with which
South Africa has just given the
world  an excellent  example,  1  look
Ex-Governcr i:ui?.er whose appeal is now being heard.    He is
conspioious in the centre of the group.
for as good or even a better yeai
.than   1913."
This man, as well as other leading business men, were careful to
poini oul that, things were quiet
just now. But all agreed that If
people would only think they would
see that this is always the case at
this season  of  the year.
Several leading business men of
London who were questioned declared that they see no sign on the
horizon which indicates any, falling
off  in   the     phenomenal     activities
which marked practically all the Industries and trade of England in
1913.
Two great industries in which the
year 1913 showed some slackening
up have taken on an upward movement, thanks to the American tariff
reduction. These are wool and tln-
piate industries. These were particularly slack in 1913 until the passage
of the new American tariff hill,
but today, the tin plate mills are
working overtime in order to accommodate American orders.  All    other

industries which were on the upgrade in 1913 are still booming and
here, as with the shippers, there
seems to -be every confidence thai
1914   will  equal-or   surpass   1913	
One of-the biggest manufacturers
of corrugated iron in England says
it. is almost impossible to cope with
the orders which are coming in from
Australia, the Far East and other
parts of the world. The collieries
are extraordinarily busy. The cotton mills of Manchester are booming. These mills had one complaint
in 1913, namely, the shortage of raw
material, which prevented them
handling adequately the enormous
increase  in   business.
The railroads are handling such
an enormous amount of freight that
the chief complaint of shippers of
all sorts of commodities is the difficulty of getting them delivered.
The automobile Industry, which is a
truer index o:' prosperity in England than in America, was never so
flourishing as today.

INCREASED AUTHORITY
OF BRITISH ADMIRALTY
Superintendence  of  Const   Defences
of Britain No More Shared by
War Office.
It is understood that plans are under tho consideration of the naval
and military authorities in accordance with which the defences on
the coasts of the British Isles—or, at
least, some of the more important
of them—will be transferred from
the control of the War Ofice to that
of the Admiralty.
Ten years ago the naval authorities took over the mine defences at
all the principal naval ports and,
wltih the advent and development of
submarine craft, they were abandoned. Iu the meantime, the naval authorities have created mine-laying
and mine-sweeping squadrons, the
efficiency of which has been amply
demonstrated.
The transfer of the fixed coast defences from the War Offices to the
Admiralty would be In line with the
most recent developments of policy,
and would correspond with the action taken some years ago by Germany. There is a widespread feeling
that one department should be responsible for every phase of defensive activity at the great ports,
so as to secure in the event of war
complete unity of action between
the squadrons and flotillas at sea,
the airships and" aeroplanes in the
air,  and  the fixed  defences  ashore.
At present at Harwich, for Instance, the Navy has its flotillas of
destroyers and submarines and
aerial craft, which are at Felixstowe, a few miles away, while the
Army mans the guns on the coast,
ajid is necessarily unfamiliar with
the plans of the naval authorities
and the tactics which would be em-
1 eyed under given circumstances.
Indeed, it i- doubtful if Army gunnel's would be able to distinguish
British from foreign vessels—particularly in the case of submarine;
—-while in the event of aerial craft
arriving they would certainly not
readily recognize whether they were
to be regarded as friends or enemies.
These and other considerations
have already led the Admiralty to assume all responsibility for all the
defensive arrangements adopted at
Cromarty, which is becoming an
increasingly important base for the
home fleets.
No doubt is entertained that the
discussion of problems created by
the present division of authority will
load at an early date to developments of the same character at other
ports of primary naval importance.
It is admitted by responsible military officers that great advantages
would be secured by placing the
complete charge of all coastal defences at important naval stations,
both those ashore and afloat, in the
hands of the naval service.
The naval manoeuvres of last
summer illustrated in very dramatic
fashion the roles which the submarine and the aeroplane will support
iu coastal defence, and the recognition of their Increasing importance
and the necessity of securing the
most perfect co-operation between
these craft and the fixed defences
ashore is responsible for the latest
proposal for further consolidating
the  authority  of  tiie  Admiralty.
