DINNER TO VISITOR
Representatives Of The Different Fire
Insurance Companies Here Met At
Table With Tho Representative Of
The   Underwriters   Association
Last evening at the Prince Rupert
Inn the committee ot local representatives ot the Mainland Fire Underwriters' Association tendered to
Mr. P. Seley, the official of the office at Vancouver who is here to report upon the state of the situation
here from the standpoint referred to,
a complimentary dinner. There were
present at the table representatives
of all the local insurance houses in
the city, together with the representatives of the press. The object
aimed at was to create a better feeling among the individual agents and
at the same time to give Mr. Seley
an opportunity to meet them all in an
informal way.
There was but one toast intended
to be given, and that was to the
guest of the evening. Before this
ended, however, a toast was unanimously tendered to the fire chief,
who was present, and which was
drunk with hearty good will. There
were about fifty sat down to the
table, when a very satisfying meal
was provided  by George A.    Sweet,

Complaints    Made of Treatment
Strike Prisoners
There.
of
London, Oct. 4.—Keir Hardie, the
well-known Socialist leader In the
British House of Commons, has received the following cablegram from
Nanaimo, Vancouver island:
"Over two hundred miners are
under arrest here on a charge of un-.
lawful assembling and other charges
in connection with the strike. They
have been denied bail and have been
held as prisoners for six weeks. No
trials have been given yet. The food
supplied is insufficient and of very
bad quality, causing sickness among
them. The authorities refuse friends
permission to feed them. The right
of peaceful picketing is denied.
Please make public."
Keir Hardie has informed the
Canadian Associated Press that he
has asked the Colonial Office to hold
a special inquiry Into the situation.

the host. In the absence of Cy Peck,
the local chairman, Mayor Pattullo
acted as toastmaster.
G. R. Naden, in proposing the
toast to Mr. Seley, said that he felt
that it was a good thing once in a
while to get. together and eat and
drink together. The effects of this
getting into closer touch with One
another, was beneficial. He proposed
a toast to the guest of the evening,
which was drunk with a heaVty good
will.
Mr. Seley, in reply, said that he
was no speech-maker, and his heart,
therefore, beat within him on such
an occasion. He felt that if he did
not give something to make up for
this hospitality he would be asked
to reduce the insurance rates in the
city. He was not accustomed to dinners being given him like this. He

TARIFF BILL BETTER THAN
PACT
Washington, Oct. 4.—The new tariff bill, it Is believed, will reduce considerably the cost of living in the United States. The reductions far overreach what the reciprocity i.act would have granted.   Very favorable concessions have been granted Canada.

YESTERDAY'S    BASEBALL.
In the Northwestern League
two games were played yesterday in Vancouver, as follows:
First game—All Stars, 5;
Vancouver, 0.
Second game—All Stars, 1;
Vancouver, 2.
Seattle, Oct. 4.—The Pacific Coast
Company has received the following
wireless message from the purser of
the Spokane, which went on the
rocks fifteen miles north of Cape
Lazo, Vancouver island:
"Steamer Latouche has transferred
the passengers of the Spokane back
to the Spokane, which is proceeding
to Seattle under her own steam."
Apparently the damaged hull from
the impact of the rock leaked rapidly, but it was repaired sufficiently
to reach Seattle without danger.
The steel screw steamer Spokane
of the Pacific Coast Steamship Co.
went ashore  last  night    about     10
o'clock, as reported in yesterday
morning's Journal, fifteen miles
north of Cape Lazo.
The passengers and crew in lifeboats were picked up by the steamer
Latouche of the same line. The Alki,
which was near at hand, stood by to
give any assistance necessary. All
the passengers are reported saved.

MURDERERS MISSED ROLL
OF BILLS
Valdez, Oct. 4.—The bodies of two unidentified men were found
near this place. They had been murdered. A roll of Canadian bills
containing $340 in a shirt pocket had been overlooked by the perpetrators of the deed. The pockets of the" clothes had been turned
inside out.
NO DANGER OF ANY
LACK IN GOLD FIELD
One Of The Discoverers Of The Rich
Territory Says That Game Is So
Plentiful That There Should Be No
Chance To Starve In The Country
There Is no"'»dancer of any famine
in the new gold diggings at Chisana
in the far north. This is the information that is borne out by the statement of Mr. Nelson, one of the
original stakers there, who arrived
in the city yesterday on his way
south. He says that this is an im-
possibilily owing to the fact that
there is such an abundance of game
in that part of the country.
Mr. Nelson says thai the country
around ihe find abounds in ptarmigan. These are so abundant in thai
part that there is no trouble in gel-
ting all that are required to provide
against  famine.
But the ptarmigan are not the
only game that there is there. Mountain goat and various other classes
of food animals are abundant. The
country, in fact, is noted for the
abundance of game that is to be located there. For a long time this has
been a famous hunting ground for
those in search of sport and from
there has been obtained many species of game animals and birds.
Mr. Nelson admits that up to Hie
present there has not been sufficient
food taken in there to meet the demands that are to be put upon the
prospectors who are crowding in, but
to the experienced northerner there
CHISANA SEEMS TO BE
is nothing to fear. Al the present
time the cost of transportation over
the 3.'0 miles that' separates the
region from the outside has been
very high. As much as $1.">0 a pound
had to be paid in the transporting of
supplies, so that the cost is excessive.
He estimates that there are about
350 men in that part now. Tnere is
work for a very considerable number
for the winter owing to the fact that
there is need of getting a lot or wood
out this winter for ihe thawing of
the ground next summer. Quite e
pari of the ground will have to be
thawed at depth. Then in addition
there is a very large extent of country that needs to be prospected before the real value of the territory
is ascertained.
Mr. Nelson is anxious to get back
again. He Is going south, but on
reaching here he said that he had a
strong Inclination to return. He was
already beginning to feel that he
would like to be back again in the
territory.

^Princess Sophia Yesterday-He Says Camp Is Sure To Be A Good One
Edmonton, Oct. 4.—In an automobile accident tonight at a level
crossing of the Canadian Northern
Railway on Nanaimo Avenue, Mrs.
Lines, wife of W. E. Lines, manager
of the Edmonton Brewing & Malting
Co., and Mrs. Dorothy Clifford, also
of Edmonton, were instantly killed.
Mr. E. R. Cochrane, manager of
Ihe Dominion Bank on the South
Side, had his leg broken. The driver
of the car. L. .1. Jellett, escaped uninjured.
The Chisana gold fields promise to
be good. This is the information that
was brought to the city yesterday by
two travellers from the north who
are in a position to know what the
territory is capable of producing. One
of these is General Manager Dixon
of the White Pass and Yukon Railway, and the other Mr. Nelson, an
old-timer In the Yukon, who was one
of the original locators of gold in ]
tho Chisana. Both of then; are satis-
fled that there is to be a good camp
there and are taking steps that show
that they believe in this.
Mr. Dickson, who has been in the
north with Mr. Close, one of the Old
Country directors and shareholders
In ihe White Pass, Is so satisfied
thai there Is io ho a good camp tnere
that he has authorized the put ling
in of a stage line for passengers and
frelghl from White Horse to the
camp,
Putting  iu   Supplies.
Mr. Dickson says that he ..as arranged that the line Into the district shall be opened up at once.
With this in view he has made the
necessary arrangements for the placing of $100,000 worth of stores at
White River on the way into the
district. This is but a start that is
being made in this line and as the
camp warrants more there will be
more provided.
Mr. Dickson was asked if in his
opinion the new camp was to be a
surety. His answer was that the
provision that was being made by
his company was sufficient to warrant the faith that they had in the
stability of the district. The exact
character of the service that will be
supplied has not been decided upon,
lie says, but It will be Increased as
the trade warrants.
.   Discoverer's Views.
The views expressed by Mr. Nelson,.
one of the old-timers iu the north,
who has had long experience in just
such propositions as are presented
there, are similar to that expressed
by the general manager of the White
Pass Raillway. He was in the country
when the discoveries were made. In
fact, Mr. Nelson was one of the men
who made the discovery there.. He
has the most unbounding faith in
the district.
Speaking of the camp he was most
conservative in his estimate, He says
thai ii is impossibe as yet to pass
fully upon the district. There has not
been enough done on the ground yet.
He gives tho same advice as Dr,
Cairns did with respecl to the camp
and the whole districl thai is involved. Thai Is thai there should
be n vast amount of prospecting
done lo fully prove the worth of the
territory.
Thirty Thousand Taken out.
He says that already there lias i
been $30,000 taken out of the country In gold. This was all taken from
two creeks, which are the only ones
thai have been exploited to any extent as yet. The creeks an- the
Bonanza and the Little Eldorado.
On these there has not been a great
deal  done  yet even.
There is room for a staff of about
a thousand men to engage in the
prospecting of the territory, he says.
This is the demand of the country in
order to prove the worth of it.
Coarse Gold.
The gold that is found in the
creeks is coarse in its character. It
resembles, he says, the output of the
Eldorado iir the Yukon. He took oui
the gold that he got from the claims
in about one or two feet In depth.
In no places has bed-rock been
reached. He does nol know tnat it
is rlghl to say thai the diggings are
shallow ones. There 1ms been no
depth attained as yet, but this does]
r.o't mean that there is not to be good
deep earth to work. The camp is n !
its Infancy and there is yel B vasl
amount to do before anything can
he said wiih certainty concerning the
camp.
I
Haul   Roads  Vet.
Speaking ol the means of getting
iimi the district, Mr, Nelson says
that It cannot he said that there are
any easy ways in yet. They are all
hard. The way In by White Horse
is perhaps the most popular as yet.
By that route it is about 350 miles
inlo the district thai Is to be opened
up.

Railway of the question of th* taking
in of supplies is in his estimation n
matter of great consequence to the
camp. The cost at the present time
of transporting goods is very high.
The country is easy to get around in
and the company will be able to get
a good road In to the place, so that
there should be a good chance to get
lots of supplies to meet the needs
of next  summer there.

REVOLUTIONIZE   RIFLE   FIRING.
Spectators Astonished to See Neither
Smoke, Plash Nor Recoil From
New Invention.
SOMETHING LACKING.
The deplorable state of affairs
that was brought to light in the
courts here the other day in which it
was shown tnat a young girl of about
fourteen was debauched serves to
show that in connection with our
vaunted civilization there is something lacking as far as the care of
girls and boys that are left without
the fullest protection of parental
care. The state owes a debt to the
young to see 'that they are given a
fair start in the rare of life. In
recognition of that the state enforces compulsory education. It also
enacts laws that have for their object the ensuring of at least passable
environments, so that the girls and
the boys may grow up to be of assistance to the state and not a
menace or a charge.
In a thousand ways, however, the
students oi sociological subjects have
lessons to learn and to have impressed upon the general public before some of the most glaring wrongs
against society and the well-being
of the social body are righted. The
state is being robbed of what would
be good citizens every day. Immense
sums are being expended in the repressing of wrongs that should not
exist and which are making the individuals and the state the poorer
the  longer  they exist.
It is evident that the proper method of facing up to subjects like the
social evil has not yet been found,
and in consequence the country is
sacrificing from among the physically strong and the mentally capable
of taking a proper place in the state
scores and scores. All of this is because society has not properly faced
up to this question and has not applied a remedy that is logical and
that takes its | art at the time when
the repression will have the effect
of turning the channels of these
lives.
Paris, Oct. 4.—An obscure inventor named Sava Rogozea has just
demonstrated discoveries which
promise tn revolutionize rifle firing.
His invention consists of a special
cartridge ami double Inflammable
bullet, primarily designed for the destruction of airships. In his experiments Rogozea used an old gun
Imilt in 1830. Although his cartridge
was filled with powder, spectators
were astonished lo see neither smoke,
flash nor recoil as he fired, the
strange long bullet travelling straight
to the butt, instead of executing a
series of irregular bounds, as it
should have done, according to accepted ballistic laws. The bullet
carried 1200 meters, but it is calculated that with a modern rifle it
would have carried 3000 meters.
Rogozea also claims to have invented a cannon costing only 3 0 0
francs, or.about $60, easily carried
by two men, which can throw a shell
7000  meters.
Another invention which he has
brought forward is a shrapnel shell
which scatters its contents along the
level of the ground, mowing all in
its way instead of dropping from
above.

INSTRANOE   KATES.
While Mr. Seley, the representative
of the Underwriters, is in the city
an attempt is being made by the local
agents to get at a better basis for
reduction of the rates paid here. Mr.
Seley's" views are being taken on
many points and attempts being
made to rectify wherever there is
any chance to get a better rating.
One of the suggestions that has been
made, it is learned, is that there
shall be retaining walls put in the
various business blocks. These would,
In effect, be fire-proof walls, running between the buildings, and effectively stopping the spread of the
flames sufficiently to allow the fire-

felt that he could not show his appreciation better than by getting in
and working his best to give a good
fair report upon Prince Rupert and
give the various parts a good, fair
and adequate rate. He made a humorous reference to the retaining wall,
which is a live subject between the
inspector and the local insurance
men.
Following the speech of the guest,
the toastmaster called upon a number of those who were about' the
board to make speeches, all of which
were very short. Breathed throughout
all of them was the general desire
of the company that there might be
a reduction in the rate of insurance.
W. Raymond, M. M. Stephens, and
M. P. McCaffery, who was described
on the programme as "the incontrovertible." expressed their satisfaction at being present to meet Mr.
Seley.
M. J. Hobin expressed sorrow that
Mr.  Peck was not present and    re
ferred to the fact that they were,
perhaps, holding the last of many
banquets that had been held iu the
Inn.
VV. R. Law said he was a firm believer in such banquets. He expected
that the report of Mr. Seley would
be fair. He referred to the fact that
there were many places in the city
that were not carrying insurance. It
wiould be a calamity under the
circumstances if there were a firo.
If there could be a reduction it would
be a blessing.
Aid. Dybhavn referred to the new
building bylaw and the fact that it
would be well to consider some of
tbe points In this connection that
had  been  raised  by  Mr.  Seley.
Aid. Leek, F. it. C. Drown, O. II.
Nelson and H. il. Taylor, in turn,
spoke briefly.
Chief McDonald said that if Mr.
Seley would reduce Ihe rales he
would take care of the prevention of
the fires.
F. Doyle endorsed the views that
had been expressed by the others.
They were, having to throw themselves on the mercy of Mr. Seley.
M. M. Stephens, being called upon
a second time, proposed a toast to
the fire chief. He said that he had
known him a long time in the interior and he was a good fighter of
fires.
This toast was honored when G.
A. Sweet referred to the fire that
broke out in the Inn and which the
chief had confined to the roof. This
was a proof of his ability.
After a speech from J. Lome McLaren  the meeting broke up.

PIONEERS OX PACIFIC. |T. Webster, J. Stun, .Mrs. Jones, Miss
The Kandahar, which was recent-! Jones,   Mrs.   J.   W.   Kirkpatrlck,     J.
ly built on the Tyne, is a fine specimen of a modern cargo ship, and on
the trials a speed of nearly 14 knots
was maintained on the measured
mile. An interesting feature in the
ship is the cruiser-shaped stern which
is a most uncommon feature in a
cargo ship and gives increased carrying capacity. Messrs. Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson, Ltd.,
were pioneers in the introduction of
this shape of stern for merchant
vessels, and built the Prince Rupert
and Prince George mail steamers for
the Grand Trunk Pacific, with |
cruiser-shaped sterns. These vessels |
were the pioneers of their kind on
the Pacific. This form of hull has
proved very successful, both as regards the design and internal arrangements. Other builders soon copied the design and some of the latest
transatlantic liners nave sterns of
similar shape.

GERMANY'S NEW SQUADRON.
Addition to High Seas Fleet, Bended
by Dreadnought Kaiser, Tentatively Commissioned.
London, Oct. 4.—Tho third squadron of the German high sens fleet
has been brought into existence and
tentatively commissioned for a year,
consisting of the dreadnought Kaiser,
the pre-dreiidnoughts Elass and
Brauschweig and the new vessels
Koenig Albert, Prtnz Regent l.uit-
pold and the Kaiserin. Other new
vessels will be added occasionally until the fleet consists of eight first-
class  ships.
Since 1904, the German fleet has
been constantly expanding. In that
year the British strength was twice
that of the German in home waters,
with 12 ships in the Mediterranean
and five in the Far East, a total of
33. At present the British battleships number 37. In 1904, in home
waters, there were 16 British capital
ships as against eight German, and
on foreign service 17 British and no
German. In 1913 there are in home
waters 29 British and 24 German';
on foreign service 10 British and
one German.
Important developments are in
progress with regard to the Government's torpedo factory at Greenock.
New buildings are being erected to
employ 300 extra men per building.
An improved method of propulsion
of torpedoes has been discovered
that excels anything previously produced. It is now being severely tested, and the secret is being guarded,
the contract of each workman being
restricted to a small portion of each
torpedo.
FLIGHT ACROSS ATLANTIC.
Aviator Graham  White Has  Designed Biplane in Wliicli He Believes
He Can Undertake Trip.
London, Oct. 4.—Mr. Claude Graham White is making serious plans
for an aeroplane flight across the
Atlantic. He has designed a biplane
in which he believes he can undertake the flight in safety and he estimates that the full equipment for the
tn'ii will not cost more than $30,000.
"The first flight across the Atlantic will mark an epoch in aviation," he said, "and my ambition is
to be the first to reach America
from Europe by aeroplane route.
"There is no doubt whatever in
my mind that the transatlantic flight
will be miade before long by someone, and it is only a question of who
the first shall be. At present 1 am
trying to interest friends and supporters of aviation here in my
prospective venture and feel that
with any kind of support the great
flight  will  soon  be a reality.

ln-k-i mites un two or three of the
musl startling new advances'placed
on record.
Removal  of a   Lung.
The Section of Surgery discussed
| a new branch ol surgery, "Intra-thor-
laclc Surgery."
Mi- William Mai-leui.:'.-. contribution io the debate was by far the
j most Interesting and Informing of the
day. IL- drew attention to two points
in that large subject. In the fhsl
place, lie wished to demonstrate a
patient operated on by him 18 years
ago, whose left lung had been removed in its entirety for tubercular
disease. The patient had been
brought from Glasgow and was seen
by the section to be a strong, healthy-
looking man whose left side was hollow and fallen in. lie was engaged
steadily al wink. At the time of the
operation the right lung was diseased, but. the removal of the hopelessly diseased lung was followed by improvement in ihe condition of the
remaining lung.
That experience had been found in
four other similar cases. In all these
cases the apex of the diseased lung
had been adherent to the great vein
at the root of the neck, and at n
later stage in the last four cases the
vein and that piece of lung were removed. In the first case the patient
for some days suffered great distress
from the "flopping" of his heart to
and fro as his position was changed.
This symptom was obviated by stitching the pericardium to the front part
of the chest wall.
An Artificial Kidney.
A demonstration which excited
great interest was that of Prof. Abel
of Baltimore.
Prof. Abel presented a new and
ingenious method of removing substances from the circulating blood,
which can hardly fail to be of benefit
in the study of some of the most complex problem's. By means of a glass
tube tied into a main artery of an
anaesthetized animal the blood Is
conducted through numerous cel-
loidin tubes before being relumed to
the veins through a second solution.
All diffusible substances circulating
in the blood pass through the intervening layer of celloidin, and can be
found in the saline solution, where
they can be subjected to fractional
analysis. In this way Prof. Abel has
constructed what is practically an artificial kidney. In many instances the
working of the added excretory organ
is more rapid than that, of the actual
kidney of the animal; 3 per cent, per
hour of salicylic acid can be removed
from the blood. Although primarily
the apparatus is of use in the estimation and analysis of the diffusible
contents of the blood, it is possible
that the principle may ultimately be
adopted in the treatment of tho
disease. At the close of the demonstration, which excited the liveliest
interest and discussion, Prof. Abel
was accorded round after round of
applause.
Transplantation of the Kidney.
Dr. Ernst Jeger demonstrated a
number of specimens to show what
had been achieved experimentally In
dogs. He had successfully removed
a piece of artery and stitched in its
place a piece of vein taken from the
same animal, lie had transplanted
one kidney of a dog from Its abdominal position 19 the neck, Joining the renal artery to the carotid
artery, tho renal vein to the jugular
vein, and the function of that kidney
was continued  unimpaired,
