so well satisfied with the outlook
that he will continue the work all

is doing cross cutting, with the object
of seeing what there really is in the
property.
Speaking to the Journal last evening, Mr. Cronis said that they were
now close to the boundaries of what
is expected to be a good body of ore.
The next few weeks will show what
they really have there, and by spring,

London, Dec. 15.—With the Anglo-
'"""""h forces safely across the Greek
frontier, and close to their strongly-
fortified base at Saloniki, the second
phase of the Balkan campaign, which
opened with the Teutonic invasion of
Serbia and the defeat of the Serbian
army has closed.
The people ot the belligerent
countries are awaiting anxiously the
next moves. It seems fairly settled
that the Bulgarians do not intend to
invade Greece. It is not believed the
Austrians and the Germans have sufficient troops to attack the Entente
Allies.

HON. SIR RICHARD MCBRIDE, WHO HAS RESIGNED THE PREMIERSHIP OF THE PROVINCE TO SERVE HIS NATIVE PROVINCE IN

In a letter to the Journal, receiv-1

deals with the proposition of Patriotic Funds, and the right of the
city to have the power to levy taxes
to meet in part the demands made
for such a cause. Mr. Morrow's letter was as follows:

Victoria, Dec. 15.—The many
rumors that have been aflo-n for
some time past, suggesting a reconstruction of the Provincial Government, crystallised today with dramatic
suddenness, when within the space of
a few hours Sir Richard McBride resigned the Premiership ana recommended the Hon. VV. .1. Dowser as his
successor; tlie Hon, J. II. Turner resigned Ihe post of Agent. General in
London, and tlie Hon. Dr, Young resigned tlie portfolio of Provincial
Si cretary and .Minister of Education.
The New Cabinet.
Mr. Bowser at once, with a direct
promptitude which is characteristic
of all his public acts, accepted the
task of forming a new .Ministry, and
on being sent for by his Hon. the
l.ieut.-Governor at four p.m., submitted the personnel of the new Government as follows:
Hon. W. .1. Bowser, Premier and
Attorney-Gen tral.
Hon. A. C. Elumerfelt, Minister of
Finance and Agriculture.

Patriotic purposes during the war and
thereafter as long as funds for Patriotic purposes, caused by the war,
may be required."
This resolution was moved by myself, and seconded by Canon Rix,
and almost unanimously endorsed by
the meeting. On Monday evening
this resolution tame before the City
Council and was sidetracked, - Sir.
Naden appearing' and- speaking
against it. and Mr. Pattullo writing
condemning the proposal. Owing to
not feeling well 1 was unable to attend the council meeting .Monday evening, or I would have asked the privilege of dealing vylih IV r her1 Side ot
this question.
I note in the Empire, however, arguments used by the members of
the council. Alderman Edge stales
that the fund Is a National affair,
but proposes no way of making it so.
Alderman Casey states the industrial
concerns reaping profits should be
taxed, but takes no action or suggests no means to accomplish this
end. Mayor Newton says wait till
the canvass is concluded and see how
it results. Alderman Nicol stated he
understood a ready response was
given is section six. Alderman Montgomery moved and Alderman Beveridge seconded, that the request be
not compiled with.
Taking all of these arguments they
do not conclude for many of the citizens  that   the  city  government   has

GOVERNMENT CHANGE.
In another column appears the announcement that tne change, long
contemplated at Victoria has taken
place, and Sir Richard McBride has
retired from the position of Premier,
while Hon. W. J. Bowser takes that
post. A gratification will be felt in
connection with the new arrangement, in the fact that the local member takes a seat in the Cabinet. Hon.
Willian Manson enters the ministry
as President of the Council and will
have his voice in the affairs of state.
The post is one that has had illustrious predecessors in the persons of
Hon. Mr. Carter-Cotton and Hon. A.
E. McPhillipps, now a member of the
Court of Appeal for the Province. Mr.
Bowser has, in the new blood introduced, brought strong men. Mr.
Lone Campbell, of Hossland, Is a
business man of wide experience and
repute. He Is well qualified for Hie
portifolio h£ Is to fill. In Mr. Flumer-
felt, a man who has been for years
prominently identified with financial
matters, takes the Finance Department. Mr. Tisdale has the confidence
of the people of Vancouver to a very
wide degree, and brings strength to
the  Cabinet.
As we have said before, there will
at the same time, he great reluctance
on the part of the general public to
part with Sir Richard. He, however,
has handed over the reins of government to a strong successor, and one
who has the confidence of the people
of British Columbia, in spite of the
fact that he is so well hated hy his
political foes.
CANADIAN   HANKS
RANK WITH  HIGHEST
Three  Canadian  Hanks  Among The
Win-Id's Forty-flve Greatest
Institutions.
The London Statist contains a list
of the world's greatest banks from
Ihe point of their deposits. The list
places  the  Bank  of  England  at  the
head and shows that the Canadian
banks hold a very important standing
among the world's greatest financial
institutions. The list as published
shows that the Bank of Montreal, the
Canadian Bank of Commerce and the
Royal Bank of Canada appear among
the 4 5 greatest banks of the world'.
These institutions appear in the list
in the following order: 24th, Bank
of Montreal; 32nd, Canadian Bank of
Commerce; 4 3rd, Royal Bank of
Canada.
The list shows that there are only
thiee banks in the United States
which excel the.-e three Canadian
hanks, the three being in New York
City. The list includes the Bank of
England, the Bank of France, Lloyd's
Bank, the Imperial Bank of Russia,
and the Imperial  Hank of Germany.
Tin figures showed that the deposits in these three Canadian banks
totalled £105,185,000, while the deposits in the Bank of England were
£155,012,000. The Bank of France
deposits were only £14,043,000, being
much smaller than the deposits in
either of the three Canadian banks.
Most of the other banks in the list
were much ola'er institutions than the
three Canadian banks, the dates for
deposits published going as far back
as 18S0, figures for that year not
being possible for either the Royal
Bank of Canada or the Bank of
Montreal, though the list gives deposits for the Canadian Bank of
Commerce for that year at £2,318,-
008.
LAND ACT.
TAKE NOTICE that I, Miles Mac-
Innis, of Anyox, B. C, occupation
merchant, intend to apply for permission to purchase the following described land: Commencing at a post
planted about 1,500 feet distant in
a southeast direction from the shore
of an unnamed lake situated near
the summit of the divide between
the head of Alice Arm and the Naas
River, being about sixteen miles in
an easterly direction from the head
of Alice Arm, Cassiar District, B. C.
Thence south SO chains, thence west
SO- cliains, thence north SO chains,
thence east SO chains to the point
of commencement, and containing
640 acres, more or less.

(Continued from page one)
will be a realization of their hopes.
It is no small prospect that Mr.
Cronin has. The claims are about
22 miles from the railway at Smithers, and the property to be worth
anything, must be on a large scale.
Mr. Cronin himself, considers that
there must be a showing of at least
100,000 tons In sight before he will
consider the proposition as a mining
venture worth while. Evidently he
has little or no doubts about it turnout as he anticipates.
To handle the ore will require,
when the time for shipping comes,
the construction of a railway into the
mine. Since 1909 he has been working more or less upon this proposition, For the past two years, under
the Babine-Bonanza Mining S- Milling Company, in which he is a very
lie.i\y shareholder, he has been keening up continuous development with
he prospect of great things in the
end. Very hard rock was encountered in the driving of the tunnel that
was to tap the body of the ore. This
has now been ■ passed through, and
he says that better conditions are prevailing for work in the cross cutting
that is being carried out.

the G. T. P., the Cold Storage Company, and hundreds of others who are
j enjoying themselves, in many rases,
in southern California, Michigan,
Missouri, Washington, Oregon and
j other health and pleasure resorts,
? t well as Austria, should stand thoir
full share of the necessary ^expenditure of fhis war, and that no man
should he exempt, except the man
who is serving at the front, who
.should he exempt from all taxes.
This war belongs to every man ana
woman wh0 havt interests in this
country, and, excepting the men serving at the front, should share in it,
no matter where they reside, but
they are not called upon to put forth
the slightest effort to assist, while
the 2,500 people who reside here are
not only willing, but do contribute
for Patriotic purposers, tag days, raffles, Red Cross sales, Red Cross
dances, Red Cross card parties, Red
Cross socials, Red Cross efforts of
every nature most liberally.
The ladies respond daily to the
call for home cooking, taking their
days selling and the merchants give
their stores gratis, the newspapers
advertise free, the merchants and
citizens donate loyally, and the citizens, with few exceptions, respond
possibly as no other people do in
Canada. Is this a reason that we
who live here are going to continue
to pay everything, while many of the
people, banks and other concerns are
trailing good rents and profits from
their propertyj while many of us who
are here are striving to keep our
heads above water.
Citizens: Om- proposal was to
place a share of this war expenditure
for future, where it belongs, and the
City Council of Prince Rupert turned
it down, saying, let the people here
pay it all, protect the outsiders, soak
the people who are living here and
making the city, so long as they are
loyal, knowing thai as long as we can
wo will do it all.
Mr. Naden says don't frighten capi-
lal! Mayor Newton says, wait and
see if we can raise the required
amount ourselves! Is this a square
deal to the people who have made,
and are making the city over which
he presides?
Remember, Patriotic contributions
and Red Cross contributions are not
1 the only ones. Citizens of this quiet
city must meet church, society, Sal-
vatlon Army, exhlhtlon, and a jireal
many other absolutely necessary contributions; all of which arc required,
j and paid, which all goes to maintain
otti* city while those mentioned, and
over seventy per cent, of interests
here are not called upon to pay one
dollar; but after the war, many of
them will return and reap the benefit. If the policy ol the city council
Is to protect the outsiders from the
slightest war expenditure, and call
upon the insider to pay his own '
share, and their as well, my opinion
is, the insider before long will be I
the outsider.      , ! K
This would be our plan: We want
say $10,000 for Patriotic Fund next
year, and -likely for a number
per year, while most of you arc paying twenty times thai much riulii
now, because the other fellow docs
nol live here and pais nothing.
Th  bi    - hi   ii    ow :    iroperty
J will contribute willingly what they
can afford, as they do now.
• Citizens: Our object is to try and
get legislation (or the next year, not
for the ensiling twelve months, because eve;: me of those I have mentioned, and hundreds of others owning property, hut not residing here,
althou^-' rhey having large and small
interests, are not called upon to pay

goinf. i try and keep them in this
position. But, they are not going to
do 11—public sentiment will demand,
If I miBtaki noi, thai a public meeting be called and this question discussed from every angle.

a luncheon given by the Alaska
Bureau at the Arctic Club to visiting
Alaskans.
H, S, Strong, .1. .1. Duly, .1. C. Barber aim F .Ryus, representing the
Ketchikan Commercial Club, suggested thai the Alaska Bureau endeavor
to Induce Congress to pass such legislation as wiiuid force American ships
to bring their marine products to
American ports for entry. They believed that In this event, the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railroad, which hauls
the lish In Ihe East in refrigerator
cars, would be compelled lo establish
terminal rates and a ferry service to
Ketchikan. Because of the shortage
of the haul, It was pointed out, Seat-
1.14 would have difficulty in competing
-.villi Prince Rupert for the trade.
I. C. Ford and T. .1, Gorman, however, thought thai such legislation,
even if enacted, might have the effect of causing the llsherinen lo
change the registry of their ships to
the British [lag, and It was suggested
that the railroad's entering Seattle be
urged to establish a terminal rale al
past few months.
Sir Richard's Services.
"Sir Richard, during his recent
visits tn Loudon was able to accomplish some very Important results In
respect to the marketing or our products In the Motherland, and Indeed
on thc continent, besides being closely in touch with the large financial
interests, who are powerfully concerned about the future Of (his Province, and as a result there has been
a growing conviction in his mind, a
conviction shared hy (hose to whom
he gave his confidence, that he
should, If opportunity offered, take
over a post where his talents and
ability could find a large scope for
action which will ledound to' the
further advancement of the Province,
for which he has already done so
much.
"In the course of the next few-
days, I hope to lie able, after consultation vvith my colleagues, to make
a public announcement of what is to
be the general policy of the new
Government  In  its time  to  grapple
"   Sir Richard's Valediction.
Interviewed yesterday, Sir Richard
McBride said:
"Yes I have tendered my resignation as Prime Minister to his Honor,
which has been accepted, and the
resignation of my seat in the Legislature as one of the representatives
of Victoria to the Speaker of the
House.
"Owing to advancing years, Hon.
.1. II. Turner, Agent General is Lon-
don, who has done such splendid service for the Province through long
years in various capacities of Minister of Finance and Agriculture, Premie:- and later Agent General, is withdrawing from the latter office, and I
have accepted the post.
"Early, durirng my administration,
I laid down a definite programme of
development, particularly in respect
of railways and public works, and
while it is of common knowledge that
I might, have participated in a wider
range of affairs in the Dominion, I
decided not to leave my post until I
saw the end of my endeavors fairly
in sight.
War Altered Plans.
"In the meantime, the present war
has created a new situation, in which
various parts of the Empire have been
brought together very closely and
with a great intimacy of interests.
The relations of British Columbia
and Great Britain, and the countries
of the Allies as well, will in a business way assume a newer and more
important aspect than ever before,
and' It is my aim and desire to assist
in developing those relations in the
fullest degree possible.
"I have during my visits to Great
Britain and the continent, carefully
studied out interests from the view
point of those relations and think
that from my more or less personal
knowledge of men and conditions In
thc old country, I can perform a more
Important service for British Columbia there now than I could here.
"I have recommended Hon. W. J.
Dowser to his Honor as my successor,
II. L. Glbbs, who has had charge
of the Dominion Government fish
hatchery at Bahiue Lake, reached the
city last evening In company with J.
C. Nation, who has beeu employed
there also. They are both on their
way to enlist for overseas service,
and are now proceeding south to tender their resignations as a preliminary move. This more is the direct
result of the German murder of Miss
Cavell. When word of that was re-
! ceived at thc Hatchery every one
! employed there wanted to leave at
I once lo avenge the death. This was,
of course Impossible, in view of the
work in hand there. As soon as the.
heaviest work in connection with securing the spawn for the season was
over, however, Messrs. Glbbs and Nation left.
Mr. Glbbs says the capacity of the
Hatchery was taken this season, 8,-
440,000 eggs of sockeye. Tn addition
to this there was a normal number
of sockeyes reached the spawning
ground, and a very large number of
cohoes went on to spawn also.
and in his callable hands I have every
confidence that the affairs of state
1 will be energetically and most efficiently directed. His Government
will, I am sure, continue to posses
the trust and respect of the electorate
so generously reposed' in mine for the
past thirteen years."
Dr. Young's Retirement.
It is reported that Dr. Young, tn
retiring from the Cabinet, will take
the position of head of the commission charged with the care of soldiers returning from the front.
