OLE CROSBY TO
QUIT CITY SERVICE
The Retirement Of The Water Officer
Raises Spirited Debate At Council
When Month's Salary Is Asked In
Lieu of Holidays—Water Freezing
Ole Crosby, who has been connected with the city waterworks service
for about three years' time, is to
quit. He has received an intimation
from the city engineer that his
services are to cease, and, while
there are no facts given in connection with the matter, it is known
that relations between the two official! are not tne most cordial. The
acting-mayor, Aid. Sutherland, last
night at tho council meeting in fact
intimated that Mr. Crosby had been
dismissed by the engineer for insubordination or refusal to do the
duties imposed upon him by the engineer.
The matter came up last night on
a letter from Mr. Crosby, who asked
that in view of the fact that he had
not had his holidays that he should
receive a month's pay in retiring on
the request of the city engineer.
This led to considerable discussion
and a rather animated scene took
place  in   the  council   in   which  Aid.

—How They Happened.
Bullock-Webster and Aid. McCaffery
took  the  leading parts.
Aid. Bullock-Webster explained
that last year there were requests
for a month's pay for holidays under
similar circumstances. He favored
this request being granted. He regretted that Mr. Crosby was leaving
the service. He would like to see
some move made whereby Mr.
Crosby would be exonerated from
any blame in connection with the
freezing and bursting of the water
pil.es last winter. He had desired an
investigation into that incident,
which was refused. He felt that Mr.
Crosby should not carry the blame
for it.
Aid. Kerr seconded the motion.
Aid. McCarfery referred to the
generosity of .his mo'c to grant
$150 of Hie people's money. He could
not approve of the action and moved
in amendment that the letter be filed
for future re'erenic.
AM l.eei i=e jnded the amendment of Aid. McCaffery.
Aid. Dybhavn ibought that it[
would be right to g:aat this pay in
lieu of holidays as had been done
before.
The acting-mayor said that he did
not believe there should be such a
grant. Mr. Crosby had been dismissed for cause by the engineer,
for insubordination or for failure to
carry out his instructions.
The amendment was lost and the
motion to allow Mr. Crosby a
month's   pay  carried.

Crosby from any blame in connection with the pipe freezing, Aid.
Dybhavn could not see any use in

CITY B Y-LA W PASSED
DEALING WITH RENTALS
FOR PRIVATE SEWERS
At the council meeting last evening the sewer amendment bylaw was
considered in committee of the
whole. There were several clauses of
the measure that were challenged by
Aid. Bullock-Webster, who desired
information as to the working out ot
the proposals that are made in the
bylaw. Under the measure it is set
forth that any temporary sewer or
drain that is put In by private individuals must be maintained by those
putting it in. There is provision
made for the engineer to order the
improvements that are necessary and
the expense must fall upon those
who  put them  in..
Aid. Bullock-Webster wanted to
know if it was proposed to make this
retroactive. Would the owners of
lots along the Second Avenue sewer
which had been repaired last year
out of general revenue have to pay
for this? There were several other
features   of   the   measure   that     be
GRAHAM ISLAND
TELEGRAPH LINE
Work Is To Start In A Week Or Two
On The Undertaking Under The
Supervision Of Supt. Phelan. H.
S. Clements Wants Work Rushed
thought required very careful consideration. He pointed out that those
who put In sewers in the city were
also obliged to pay for the privileges
that they thus got by paying for the
bath, the closet and every other feature. They paid for the sewer themselves and then had to pay rentals
under the scheme set forth amounting to $5.00 and up.
Aid. McCaffery said that he was
very much affected by the changes
that were to be made, it would
come heavy upon himself personally,
but while he had held views somewhat similar to those held by Aid.
Bullock-Webster at first, he had
come to realize that there was no
other way out of the proposition.
These sewers had to be maintained
and it was not fair to put the burden
on those who did not have the advantages of them, and had to pay
for scavenging.
The clauses passed the committee
stage.
The telegraph line that the Dominion Go'e'iim-nt i- to put on the
Queen Chariot « Islands will he rusher through now that the vote has
been passed. The obstruction methods that were pursued at Ottawa
this last session have delayed the
work in all lines of the service, but
now that the votes have b»en passed
the work will proope ' .nth all dispatch.
There arrived on the Princess
May yesterday J. T. Phelan, the
superintendent of the Dominion Telegraphs on this coa-i who continued
on to Telegraph Creek. He will leave
the May at Wrangle, and take the
Hudson's Bay steamer Port Simpson
there for Telegraph Creek.
He is going in at this time to see
that by no chance the supplies for
the interior points along the Dominion telegraph line are not got to their
destination. He will attend to the
shipping himself, taking no chance
of anything being left behind. The
| pack trains are awaiting him on the
way and he will see that these are
loaded up for the stations along the
route. By attending to the duty personally he knows that there will be
no sidetracking of the freight.
Mr. Phelan will lose as little time
as he possibly can  in getting back
to Prince Rupert, as he is to start
the construction  of the Graham Island  telegraph   line  provided   for  in
the estimates that H.    S.  Clements
got for the district. Jusl  as quickly
as  he can  get  back  the  work   will
start.   Mr.   Phelan   will   himself   see
I that the work is carried out, and In
| addition to the disposition ho has to
j hurry, himself, he has the Injunction
from the member for the district, Mr.
Clements, to see that there is no time
lost.
The line on Graham Island will
be constructed this year, says the
superintendent. This he is confident
of, and the fact that the line to Bella
Coola, a distance of 350 miles, with
several side lines, were finished last
year is given as an example of what
can be done in this way when a determined move is made
The line on Graham Island will
connect the southern part of the Island with the northern points. By
this means the Masset settlements
will be brought into touch with the
wireless station in the south and
tints be able to communicate with all
parts of the world by way of Prince
Rupert wireless and land wire. The
superintendent expects to return to
Prince Rupert in the course of a
week or ten days if all goes well and
will then proceed at. once with the
Island line. Miss Phelan accompanied
him on  the trip north.
STRUCK A MINE.
There is to be another fish company operating hero, it would appear. Among the passengers who
went north by the Princess May yesterday was R. Sword of Vancouver,
who is on his way to Wrangle in
connection witli the formative work
relative to the starting of fishing
operations out of that port for a
new company that has been organized in the south. The company is the
Great West Fish Company, and numbers among its interested ones capitalists of Seattle, Portland, Vancouver  and   other  points   in   the  south.
In addition to the headquarters
that are projected for Wrangle, the
company has also in view another
headquarters in Prince Rupert, where
there are the facilities for the shipping of the fish when the railway
is completed  to here.
Among others that are interested
are Mr. Seeley. of Vancouver, and
C. C. Micbener, of Portland. Prince
Rupert will in any event, be an Important l oi ti I In connection with the
operations  of  the  company  In   tbe
north.

* into the question a year ago. *
What the fishing industry is to j
the city of Prince Rupert is evidenced In some measure by figures
that were obtained yesterday from
the Canadian Fish & Cold Storage
Company relative to one feature of
the halibut business alone. In addition to the shipments of fresh halibut that have been made south and
there put on the cars for shipment to
the east, there are stored away in
tho chambers of the plant at Seal
Covo now well on for a million and
a quarter pounds of this fish, ready-
to go to the miirket when It is most
needed. There are now frozen and
awaiting the opportune time to put
It on Ihe market 1,200,000 pounds
of halibut.
What that quantity of fish means
is hard to estimate to the mind untrained in matters affecting food
supplies. The quantity is daily increasing and before the season ends
there will be a tremendous tonnage
stored away for the off season for
this variety  of fish.
At this time the company is receiving at the plant about 100,000
pounds a day. On Saturday the 7A-
bassa brought In 80,000 pounds, and
the Carruthers on Its way from the
sj-ring salmon grounds at North Island brought in also about 19,000
pounds more, making up the 100,000
for that day. Today the Skugalt arrived with 85,000 pounds from the
banks, and in addition    to this the
Hayspor' of the Sl-^ena Syndicate
brought in 35,000 pounds which was
stoied tl "re, making the take at the
Cold Storage considera'.-.j over the
100,000  pounds.
Another of the company's steamers was reported from Sunday on
the banks with 120,000 pounds. She
may be expected to arrive today with
a very heavy cargo. The fishing has
been Improving again of late owing
to more settled weather conditions
and the plant will be supplied with
a very regular Intake.
The fish that are being taken are,
moreover, reported to be of the very
best quality. G. Starrett, who is a
judge unequalled in liiis line, says
that he never saw better fish landed
anywhere.     This   is   accounted     for
partly from the fact that the i.roxini-'
ity of tbe banks to the harbor induces the boats to run in with
smaller takes than would be the
case were il necessary to run nil
the way lo Vancouver with tbe fish.
When a Inn;.- run is In be made the
boats feel like taking on Hie largest
amount possible so that there may Inns little loss of linn- as possible
compared with the quantity handled,
What has been said applies --i ',-
to halibut. Hut, in addition in this
there are being received in porl hen
large quantities of spring salmon as
well, in addition, this applies only to
one concern, that ol' tin- Canadian
Fish & ('old Storage. There are
others that are operating also in
the line of halibut fishing, Including

the Atlin Fisheries, which ships direct south, owing to the fait thai

it.
When the operations ol t lie - hei

RACK TO THE PEOPLE.
How many of (lie senators who
are so anxious lo send the Govern
men! back to the people could be in-
duced to i'i sign their own seats i nd
submit their recent course to the
judgment of the electors? More than
a score of those who killed the Navy
Bill were rejected by the electors
w-hn knew them besl when they lasi
offered themselves to the people.
How would they liko to repeal thi
experiment?
SIR  WILFRID  EXPLAINS.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his friends
have already begun to explain aua.v
the course of the party machine in
rejecilng the Navy Bill. The prompt
announcement of the Imperial Government that Great Britain will add
three ships lo her own programme, to
fill the place of those expected from
Canada, is a sudden and conclusive
answer to the claim that ihe extra
'ships were not needed. It is also a
conclusive reply to the plea that
Canada would have imposed an obligation on the British Government
by providing ships for lite Admiralty
to maintain. It is clear now that in
tho opinion of tho British uovern-
ment, the ships are needed, and that
to such an extent an emergency exists. It is also clear that the Canadian gift would, instead of adding
an obligation to Great Britain, have
relieved the British taxpayer of the
cost of the ships. Sir Wilfrid cannot
explain away these facts. lie can
only protest in Quebec that he has
vindicated Canadian Independence,
and in other provinces that he destroyed the Navy Bill because he
wished to do more for the Empire
than  the measure could accomplish.
The death of Mr. Peter Elson,
member for East Middlesex since
1904, creates the fourth vacancy in
the Canadian House of Commons.
The other vacancies are: South
Lanark, created by the death of Hon.
John Haggard; Cbaleanguay, created
by the death of Mr. J. P. Brown,
and South Bruce, created by the appointment of Mr. James Donnelly
to the Senate.
The three latter scats have been
declared o| en and proclamation to
like effect will be lssu< d shortly in
connei tion  \ 'itli   Easl   Middlesex.
II is not considered likely that
electli bs In any of the seats will be
brought on until the political situation has cleared Bomewtiat,
The four by-elections made necessary in these four seats will, It is belie -il, give some indication ot eastern feeling. Two of Hie seats are
good fighting ground, namely, Clia-
toauguay .and South Bruce, while
• hi other i'. d are traditlonally Conservative.

Three million dollars worth of
bonds of the Pacific (.rent Eastern
Railway, now building from North
Vancouver to Fort George guaranteed by the Provincial Government
of British Columbia and bearing Interest al four and one-half per cent,
and redeemable In thirtj years
have just been disposed of by Messrs.
Brown, Shipley & Co. to a syndicate of British investors at 100 1-8,
This achievement is regarded as
noteworthy and as reflecting favorably on the projected enterprise and
ihe credit of the Province of British
Columbia. Financiers arc esppc.ally
im;:res'v i with e fact thai those
railway bonds sold al a premium of
one-eigath of one per cent, in the
face of a money slrnvcney and a de-
i lining stock martel,
The only issue of bonds of the Pacific   Great   Eastern   Railway     was
made last  January who.  (lie public
was invited  for subscription   to the
extent  of  $6,000,000, at  89. Owing
io the dangerous European situation
that   then   prevailed   the     investing
public did  UOl  respond cordially fend
a large portion of the. issue was left
on  the hands of  (Iip Underwriters.
The recent sale wis one of additional bonds, making the total disposed
Of   thus   far   reach   $7,000,000.   The
record price secured is now regarded
was proof that investors lasi January
did not look upon the Issue with disfavor,  but   kepi, out of the  market
owing to tho dangers of a European
war.   Arrangements  for the  sab- of
tbe liisi  issue were made with their
London agents by Messrs. J. VV. Stewart, and   Mr.  D'Arcy Tale,  president
and  vice-president,  respectively,   of
the Pacific Greal    Eastern,    during
their visit  to England last jear.
RED   I.IC.HI   ON   MILK.
Experiments show    the    Effect    of
Different Colors on
Milk.
Interesting experiments have recently been made concerning the influence of red light on milk. That
light as such is detrimental to the
conservation of milk has long been
known, but which of the rays really
did the mischief has only now I oen
determined, when it was found that
the red rays are beneficial, while
those toward the violet side of the
spectrum caused the milk to "turn."
Pure, fresh milk placed In an un-
colored glass bottle in the full sun
light, and sterilized nnd pasteurized
milk, placed also In uncolored
bottles In the same ; lace w< re found
at the end of the day to be completely spoiled and unfit for consumption.
Absolutely no difference could be
detected between the ordinary
"fresh" milk and that which had
been sterilized—both were equally
bad. Bul if even unsterilized milk is
placed in a red bottle or In a bottle
wrapped In red paper in the full
sunlight it keeps perfectly good for
ten hours. In Holland much care is
being expended on delivering pure
milk to the public. The "fresh milk-
is brought around by the milkme In
large, covered brass vessels »Iai ■!
on small hand-carts. On these same
hand-carts are open holders to contain the bottles of pasteurized or
sterilized milk, which costs rather
more, bul to which many people ■ Ivi

The official appointment of .larvis

■charge of the local office has been

as acting officer in charge. He has
now been named as the permanent
head of the local office and is being
congratulated upon attaining to
what is looked upon as a very Important  place.
Mr. McLeod is well qualified for
the post. He has been long In the
service, acting in various capacities
in the north in the early days of the
Klondyko rush, when there was
every necessity for determined action on the part, of the officials. He
served there under E. S. Busby, now
the chief Inspector of customs and
■one of the most rigid officers in the
-whole of the service. The training he
received under Mr. Busby in the
lively times when he was in charge
in the north has stood Mr. McLeod
in good stead and he is a splendid
-officer.
He has entered upon his duties
and, being well informed upon the

be no interruption of any kind in
connection with the customs. In the

Fell in 1010.
Constantinople, June 14.—The assassinated Grand Vizier Mahmoud
Schefket Pasha was buried in the
mausoleum situated on the hill of
Liberty, in the outskirts of the Turkish capital. On this hill many of his
soldiers fell while he was leading
them in the operations against Constantinople in April, 1910, when the
old Sultan, Abdul 1-Iamid, was deposed.
The funeral ceremony was carried
out wiili great pomp, most of the
garrison  of the city participating.

pipe-freezing being raised now.
Aid. Maitland objected also to
bringing this in.
Aid. Bullock-Webster wanted to
make it. clear that there had been no
investigation into the freezing of the
water pipes. There might remain an
Impression that the three members
of tho committee were to blame for
not finding money to back-fill the
trench. There was no money to be
found. The fact remained that a lot
of money might have been saved had
the pipe been drained. Who was responsible for the fact that the pipe
was not drained had never been
made clear. He amended his motion
to read that Mr. Crosby be given a
suitable testimonial as to his efficiency.
Aid. McCaffery objected to sitting
there listening to old matter being
reviewed by Aid. Bullock-Webster.
He could not see that such was necessary.
The motion as amended by Aid.
Bullock-Webster carried.

is right on the line of the railway,
thus affording the very best of opportunities for shipping. The place is
close to Prince Rupert, thus affording
the very best of opportunities for
the aiding in the development of
this city.
There are, moreover, reasons for
believing that the making of the cement may be very economically carried ij'it so that a reduction in the
price of the highest grade of material may result.
Mr. Losee says that there is excellent material alo.ig the line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific at various
points for the making of brick. The
best of qualities can be made and
there need be no lack of building
material right within the circle of
influence of the city. He is very
much attracted by the northern part
of the province and expects to see
tremendous development in this
city and district.

launch the boats on either side of
the ship, that Is to say, to whichever
side she was listed, the boats should
be mounted in boat-skids or cradles,
running in grooves sunk in the deck
of the ship.
We have been much interested to
learn that the large Flushing Royal
Mail steamers of 3000 tons, owned
by the Netherland State Railways,
and running on night service from
Folkstone to Flushing, have for the
past five years been making use of
this method of carrying and handling
lifeboats. The ships of this company
make it a point to provide sufficient
lifeboats to accommodate every person on board. This calls for a larger
number of lifeboats than it would
be possible to carry conveniently in
davits along the side of the ship and,
consequently, some of the boats are
carried amidships.
The two outer boats at the side
of the vessel are mounted adjacent
to the davits; the other two boats
are mounted on movable boat-skids,
which are arranged to travel on a
curved rail which spans the deckhouse from side to side of the ship.
The V-shaped boat chocks are
mounted pivotally on the center of
the movable skids; the top edges of
the two plates which form the sides
of the skid are arranged to receive
eye-bolts, which are placed in such
position that the boat at whatever
part of the rail it may be stowed
and made fast will rest in a vertical
position.
It will be evident from a study of
this arrangement that when the
center boats are to be launched, all
that is necessary is to undo the lashings of the skids, make    fast    the
davit tackles, and slide the boat to
port or starboard, where it is hoisted, swung outboard, and lowered.
The arrangement permits all four
boats to be lowered on whichever
side of the ship is advisable, this, of
course, being in every case the side
toward which she is listed.
It should be noted that any obstacles on deck, such as hatchways,
are easily overcome by building the
rails above the same. In practice it
takes the crew fifteen minutes to
transfer half the boats from one side
to the other, and to lower all the
boats into the water over one side.
The device was worked out by one
of the company's officers and it was
awarded a gold medal as an improved life-saving device by the Exhibition of Safety which was held at The
Hague in 1908.

AMERICA BROUGHT FREIGHT.
There arrived In port yesterday
the ship America, in tow of the tug
Commodore, belonging to the
Hastings Sawmill Company. The vessel brought here a cargo of heavy
freight, included among it is 250
tons of coal for the city of Prince
Rupert, about S00 tons for the
Grand Trunk Pacific, and a large
amount of timber for Foley, Welch
and Stewart. The work of discharging  will  commence today.
HAD   MANY    PASSENGERS.
The C.P.R. steamer Princess May
arrived in port yesterday afternoon
with a full complement of passengers on the way north. Among them
was a small number of tourists who
are making the round trip to Skagway. Several took passage here on
the  steamer,
SAILED FOR THE SOUTH.
The Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Prince Rupert left yesterday morning for the south with a good number of passengers. The steamer
made the run to Granby on Saturday
night, returning Sunday evening.
Passengers by the vessel report that
there is general activity at the
smeller town.
QUESTION  OF  LIFEBOATS.
Says the Scientific American: Until the time arrives when ocean-going steamships are so fully protected against sinking that every ship
can act as its own lifeboat, it will
be necessary to stow sufficient lifeboats to take care of every soul
on board. As compared with present
conditions, this involves carrying
twice and in some cases three times
as many lifeboats as are now carried
on some ships. Where such an increase is made, especially in the
largest vessels, the problem of stowage and the getting of the boats to
the side of the ship becomes a very
difficult one.
At the time of the loss of the
Titanic, the Scientific American, in
Its issue of April 27, 1912, published a study of this problem in connection with the ill-fated ship, In
which it was shown that by slowing
the lifeboats athwartship and dispensing with some of the deck structures, it was possible to provide for
fifty-six lifeboats instead of the twenty that the ship carried. It was suggested  that  In  order  to be able  to
