PRINCE RUPERT IS
WELL REMEMBERED
The Estimates for the Year Passed
At Ottawa Show That the Public
Works Will Be Looked After Here
—Interest In the Fisheries So Important to This Port Is Manifested
White House Honeymooners Return
Home From European Trip
The report regarding the estimates presented In the House of
Commons at Ottawa became somewhat mixed in transmission a few
days ago. The following figures are
therefore given:
The main estimates total v146,786,-
126 for ordinary expenditures, as
compared with $143,213,815 last
year, or an increase of $3,573,312.
Capital expenditure for the coming
year is estimated at $43,94:1,050, as
compared with $59,443,351 last year,
or a decrease of $15,494,301. The
net decrease on the total estimates
of this year as compared with last
year is $11,920,990. As is usual, a
considerable portion of this year's
estimates are revotes of sums which
were appropriated last year and not
expended.
A striking feature of the estimates
is the big increase in the vote for
agriculture. In the last year of the
, '.aurier administration the total
vote for agriculture was $1,640,234.
In the first year of the Bordeu administration the increase was over
a million, the total vote of 1912-13
being $2,i 03,400. The following
year the vote was again increased
to $3,381,725, and this year mere is
another increase to nearly $4,000,-
000, the total being $3,987,087. Thus
in the two and a half years of the
present Government's rule the appropriations for agriculture have
been increased by no less than $2,-
300,000, and today it is not far
from three times what it was in
1910-11.
For Prince Rupert there appears
the following items:  Drill Hall, $3.">,-
ure appropriated. St. John Harbor
Inrptrovements call for i$3,000,000.
For drydoeks at Halifax and Esquimau there are votes of $250,000
each, aud there are also votes of
$500,000 for French River improvements, this being a step in the direction of the Georgian Bay scheme.
For Quebec Harbor there is $750,-
000.
Amongst the larger public works
are new departmental buildings, for
which $1,000,000 is set aside. There
is $500,000 to start new federal
buildings at Toronto. For the new
customs buildings at Montreal there
Is a vote of $850,000, and for the
Ottawa customs house $750,000.

Mr. and Mrs. Francis B. Sayre, the White House honeymoouers, on
their arrival from Europe aboard the storm-tossed Majestic said they
enjoyed their stay in London and their trips about England the best of
all  their experiences abroad.
"We not only found the cities and historical points very interesting,"
said the president's daughter, "but we made a great many new friends,
besides the English men and women we had met before going abroad."
The English people took a great interest in tbe young couple also, the
big London dailies frequently featuring their photographs. They were
interviewed many times and both expressed the opinion that the bonds
of kinship and friendship between Britain and America are too strong to
be broken.
Mr. and Mrs. Sayre will live in WilUanistown, Mass., where they have
furnished a modest home. Mr. Sayre will be secretary to the president of

and to provide for hotter transportation facilities for fresh fish. For the
fisheries patrol service there is an

Among new votes is $40,000 for

Other items include $40,000 to assist in suppressing the white slave
traffic. A grant of $7.r>00 Is included
in the vote for defraying expenses
of the National City Planning Congress to be held in Canada this sitmr
mer.
Some of the chief increases iu the
estimated expenditures are for civil
government, subsidies to the provinces, Dominion lands and parcels
post and immigration. There are decreases for public works, railways
and canals, militia and for the naval
service.
Amongst the largest votes are the
sums for the carrying on of such
national projects as the Hudson's
Bay Railway, the National Transcontinental, Halifax terminals, the
Wetland Canal and the development
of national ports. That the national
Transcontinental is Hearing completion is shown by a decrease in the
vote from $19,000,000 tasl year io
$8,000,000 this year. For terminals
and elevators of the Hudson's Da)
Railway there is a vote of $4,600,-

to be actively pushed forward is
shown by the vote of $4,000,000.
Two millions was the vote for this
last year, 'ibere is a vote of $3,000,-

$7,500,000 for the Intercolonial

Since he warrants were signed
j they have" been served on tbe detectives through the office of the
high constable of Quebec on their arrival in that city.
The charges of corruption were
made originally by the Daily Mail
of Montreal, The names implicated
most conspicuously are those of
Hon. L. P. Berard, meiuoer of the
Legislative Council; Hon. Achille
Bergevin, also a member of the
Legislative Council, and J. A. Mous-
seau, member of the Legislative Assembly.
In the charges formulated by the
Daily Mail against members of the
legislature at Quebec, the name of
Joseph Octave Mausseau, member
for Souianges, and chairmau of the
Private Bills Committee of the
House, stands out in special prominence,
It is charged that Mr. Mousseau
received the lion's share of the
I "graft" paid by agents of the W. J.
j Burns Detective Agency to secure
I the passage of the "Montreal Fair
; Association   Bill."
The charge is that Mr. Mousseau
received $4,150 in all—$2,ouo in
payment for his own vote and Influence in securing the passage of the
bill; $1,150 to be distributed among
members of the Low re House and
$1,000 to be paid to a member ol
the legislative Council for a similar
purpose.
The arrangement made with Mr.
Mousseau in the first instance, was
that he was to be paid $500 down
and  $2,000  after    the  bill bad  be-

Ottawa, Feb. 3.—Sir Charles Fitzpatrick, chief justice of the
Supreme Court of Canada, gave judgment today In the tax sale
case of Temple vs. North Vancouver,="'announcing thai as the court
had divided, tiie appeal was dismiss d with no costs allowed. The
case will likely go to the Privy Council.
William Manson, of this city,
member for Skeena, speaking in the
Legislature a few days ago taunted
the Liberal party with its lack of
constructive policy, and gave figures
showing that the number of pre-
emptors who had settled on Crown
lands during the past year was in
excess of those who entered in
1912.
In opening the debate, the member for Skeena said that the leader
of the Opposition seemed to be very
jealous of any report being made
public that was favorable to the
Government. The standing and the
policies of tbe present administration were too well known throughout the province to be materially affected by broad charges of mis-gov-

Ottawa, Feb. 3.—The first ministerial caucus of the session was
held this morning. It is understood
that tbe discussions that were held
related to the sessional programme
for the most part.
While there was a free exchange
of opinion relative to free wheat exchange with the United States, It Is
said that the opinion of the members was wholly against the Government availing itself of the opportunity offered tinder the Hill tariff.

Government had been endorsed b\
overwhelming majorities at the poll-
in recent years, and that even within the last few months when the
Islands constituency became vacant,
the Conservative candidate was returned by a magnificent majority.

Caampalgn of Liberals.
In dealing with the published reports of what the Liberal paper-,
termed the triumphal march of their
leaders, he said that It had been
stated that in some places 700 people were present in the halls to
listen to their addresses. Anyone
who is acquainted with the distric
knew that the maximum capacity o:'
these balls did not exceed 200.
"If the Liberals are so ready    to
criticize  the  policies of the presen1
administration it. is unfortunate that,
they cannot enunciate some constructive policy  instead of the policy of
general   destruction   which   they   «.
freely   dictate,"   said   Mr.     Manson.
"Had     such   a   course   been     taker,

PROVINCIAL FINANCES.
It has been with high glee that
the Liberals of the province have
been attacking the Provincial Government because it is alleged by
them that Ihe finances are not In a
satisfactory condition. The situation
as far the finances are concerned is
far more satisfactory than these
"blue ruin" critics would have had it
appear.
The Attorney-General a few days
ago gave an assurance to the Conservative Association iu Vancouver
that sets at rest any fears that a
discredited party of "statesmen"
traiued in Liberal platform-making
conventions may have stirred up.
Mr. Bowser said:
So far as the revenue and expenditures for this year were concerned, he was not able to inform
th^ru, because there were two
months and a half of the present
fiscal year yet to run, but when he
told them that they had been able
to save this year over $1,000,000 on
the amount voted for public works,
and their anticipated revenue had
also expanded, they could take it
there would be no such deficit as
$7,000,000, as estimated in the last
budget speech. They could appreciate the unfairness of their opponents
in still charging that the deficit for
1912-18 and 1913-14 was $13,000,-
(00 when it was $3,000,000 instead
of JO,000,000 in 1912, and would
be a great deal less for this year
than the $7,000,000 which was
shown  in  the last budget  speech
The British Empire Trusl Company in Loudon in its annual synopsis combats charges of over-borrowing brought against Canada of late.
The report points out that the
value of exports of grain and farm
products alone for the eleven months
ending November last, exceeded
$200,000,000, and will probably
reach $225,000,000 for the whole
year.
Against ibis, Canada last year
borrowed abroad through public Issues about $200,000,000, and the
writer argues that the fact that in
one year a young country can show
exports of farm produce alone having a value equal to its imports of
capital for that year is a satisfactory
if not a conclusive answer to an allegation of over-borrowing.

Waashington, Feb. :i. The embargo mi the exportation of munitions of war from the United States
to Mexico is about to he lifted. This
action follows the most careful consideration of tlit> situation and Is
deemed to be in the best interests of
peace.
The embargo will be lifted with
the idea that rather than contributing io bloodshed, the Importation of
arms would hasten the end of the
war and thus reduce the bloodshed
thai is now prevailing in the country.

when and how to approach the financiers for the sale of debentures. The
board's establishment would have a
most beneficial effect on the floating
and sale of British Columbia municipal bonds, because of the guarantee to investors of the character.and
the financial stability of the district
selling the debentures. The safeguards provided by the Investigation
of the board would; he believed, remove the impression on the part of
the British investing public /that
municipalities were extravagant in
their expenditures,

Bishop     DuVernel      Expresses     His
Thanks to Friends iu This
City.
Miss Hogan, the daughter of Rev.
William Hogan, who passed away a
few days ago at Masset, has had a
most trying experience In her efforts
to reach home. She started out for
the Queen Charlotte Islands yesterday morning on board the Canadian
Government steamer Quadra, expecting to reach there early In the day,
bul was again doomed to disappointment. 'I lie Quadra encountered very
heavy weather off Dixou Entrance
and bad to turn back to Prince
Rupert  for shelter.
The vessel had reached a point
about ten miles off Triple Island at
11:30 when she encountered a
strong north-west wind with snow.
So severe was the weather that the
captain felt obliged to seek shelter.
Miss hogan on her way from
Hszelton encountered on the train
the only delays thai the Grand
Trunk Pacific has had this winter
from snow. Following the delay of a
day on the train, she had some considerable wait here before she was
able to start for home, only to find
that the steamer which she started
out on, one of the fishing fleet, had
to put back. It was theu that she
learned that her father had passed
away and through the efforts of
friends it v.as arranged that she
should go by tbe Quadra. The ill
luck that has attended her movements again continued and she was
forced    back to the city    about    5
0 clock last night on board the ves-
itl.
In connection with the -death of
Rev. Mr. Hogan, Bishop DuVernet
has sent the following communication to The Jonrnal:
On behalf of Mrs. and Miss Hogan,
as well as the Diocese of Caledonia,
1 wish to thank most sincerely the
many friends,who have shown their
deep sympathy.
I'he flying of flags at half-mast by

PREMIER     BORDEN   HAS    GIVEN
NOTICE  OF   MEASURE   TO
UK   IXTItODK Ell.
Itritish Columbia Will Have Thirteen
Members It  Is Expected I'nd.'r
the New Measure.
Premier Borden gave nol ice a lew-
days ago of the redistribution bill,
which will be introduced at an early
date. This hill will set forth the
number of members for each province, but will not state in any way
how the ridings are lo be constituted, this probably being lefi lo a
committee of the House as in 1893.
The unit of representation, obtained
by dividing the population of Quebec by ('.•'', will he 30,811. This
means that the members to be allotted to each province will he as follows:
Ontario, H'2; Quebec, 05; Nova
Scotia, Hi; New Brunswick, 11;
Manitoba, 15; British Columbia, 13;
Saskatchewan, 111; Alberta, 1:!;
Prince Edward Island, :!; Yukon
Territory,   1;   total,  234.
In (lie redistribution, Ontario
loses 4 members, Nova Scotia 2,
New Brunswick 2, and Prince Edward Island 1: while Manitoba will
gain ■"', Saskatchewan ii. Alberta 5,
and British Columbia 0.
It is expected that the unit ot
representation in the larger cities
will be considerably larger than the
unit in the less-congested places. It
is likely to be in the neighborhood
of  40,000.

of settlement in that area, thele was
an enormous demand fur a system
of roads which would require a large
amount of money in their const ruction. In dealing with this settlement
he said that the number of pre-
emptors who located In Prince
George during the past year was
442; in Uazelton, 107; in Fort
George, 581; and in Fort Eraser,
490.
"The total number of pre-empton
In British Columbia during last year
was 3856," said the member for
Skeena, "covering an approximate
area of 510,000 acres, as compared
with ;!6Ca settlers during the previous year, covering an approximate
nOO.OOO   acres."
Ore Ready for Shipment.
In reviewing mining conditions In
I ihe northern part of the province, he
I said   that   the  conditions  of  the  Industry   were   satisfactory;   that   the
smelter at  Granby  Day  was already
completed   and   would   be  in  opera-
I Uon   within   a   few   days;   that   the
Portland     Canal   tunnel   had     been
pierced  for a  distance of  2500  feet,
and that there was a large amoiiui
of ore ready for shipment as soon as
the   Grand   Trunk     Pacific     whs  in
operation, which, he predicted, would
be next June. The mining output  for
last  year  was  far  in excess of any
previous year, with the exception ot
the record year of 1912, and aggregated   $30,158,000.''

all they could to encourage white
fishermen in Pacific waters, and he
predicted that within five years tiie
Japanese fishernien would be a thing
of the past so far as British Columbia is concerned.
"Business conditions at Prince
Rupert are most satisfactory, and the
depression of which we have heard
so much during the past (few
months has not been felt to any extent in that city. We have under
construction a drydock that will cost
$2,500,000 before completion, work
has begun on the Grand Trunk Pacific terminus, and tbe excavations
have also been begun for a hotel
Which will cost $2,000,000; and altogether the outlook In this district
has never been more favorable than
it  is  today."
