COMPANY PLEASED
Not a Shareholder of the Grand Trunk
Has Criticism to Offer at Meeting In London.
Chairman Sniithers  Looks   Forward
to Coupling L'p of Line This Fall
If All (Joes Well.
Presiding at the half-yearly meeting of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway In London, Chairman Sniithers
expressed gratification in announcing
an increase of one per cent., making
2 1-2 per cent, for the year on third
preference stock. Satisfactory progress is being made with the grade on
the Pacific section, said Mr. Sniithers, and unless labor troubles intervened it is probable that the two
lines will be connected in the fall,
The company then will be able, not
only to remove the crop eastward
hut also handle traffic westward.
During the year 1912 the number
of Western Canadian land seekers
has been greater than ever and the
tendency during the last two years
has been for honieseekers rather
than speculators to buy land, a condition which the company heartily
welcomed.
Gross receipts of the company are
now £10,000,000 against .£4,000,000
in lSOii. When Ihe present board
took office their view of the money
market had proved correct, a difficult year had been passed most successfully, and Canada was entitled
to congratulation on the way she was
emerging from a trying period.
There is every likelihood of continued immigration and the opening
of new land, which are true marks
of Canadian progress, and would he
strongly apparent this year.   y
Not a solitary shareholder had
criticism to offer on the report,
which was adopted, cordial thanks
and appreciation of the meeting to
the officials and staff being accorded.
The sale of lots in Port Edward,
which is to be an industrial complement to this port, has been phenomenal. The expectations of those who
are interested seem to have been exceeded. Messrs. Harrison and
Gamble, the.local dealers who have
charge of the sale of the property,
have had reports from the various
selling centres with the result that
there are now approaching well on
for half a million dollars worth of
the lots already disposed of.
The sales in Prince Rupert, where
the true worth of the site is so well
known, have been' exceedingly good.
They have, in fact, been better than
it had been the expectation of the
sellers to look to. Local dealers
have bought heavily in local sales
that have been held and there was
the feeling that on this account there
would be reluctance on the part of
the citizens here to get in on the
Port Edward lots. This proved to be
contrary to the facts, however. On
the other hand, the sales to local
men have been excellent.
■ Vancouver and Victoria, where the
experience has been gratifying in
line of the additions to the main
cities, have made very heavy purchases in the place. This is an assurance that these places realize that
the future of this city of Prime flu-
pert is one of the brightest on the
Coast. They are ready to put money
in what will be the first of the adjuncts to be brought into prominence.
As will be seen by the advertising
columns, there is still offered for
sale in the new port several good
lots. These are In what is Section
One of the townsite and In what will
be the business centre of the city
that is to be built up there.

There have been requests for a

it is felt would be of great value to
small vessels going into the bay.
There Is a buoy there at the present
time, which serves the needs during
the day in an excellent manner. It
Is useless at night, however, and
there is felt to be need of something
to serve at night to aid the increasing business at that point.

 ip	
There reached the city yesterday
by the Prince Rupert, George Morrow, who holds a large interest in
the Premier Hotel and who has come
north at this time to take-the necessary steps towards beginning the
construction of the new building that
is to be erected by the company on
the site at the corner of Second avenue and Fifth street, where the Hart
building formerly stood.
He is accompanied on this trip by
Mr. Randall, the architect of the
building and during the stay here
arrangements will be made to at
once proceed with the work of construction. Already there are bids in
for the excavating of the site, as far
as It is to be done. It is the intention
of the company to have the earth removed only from one-half of the
basement where the necessary heating plant will be installed. The remainder of the site will be left, as
it would call for the removel of a lot
of rock, to clear it. There will be a
basement of concrete put in from
rock bottom all around the building
so the structure that may be erected
| will be of the most substantial kind.
This is all Ihe more necessary in
view of the fact that the building
that is to be erected will he a heavy
one, built in a vers substantial manner. It will be a wooden frame with
a veneer of brick which will give ltjment between the Central Vermont
n massive appearance and will re- and the State-owned railroad for a
duee Ihe danger from lire to a very division of through rates on :: mile-

Providence, R.I., April ■'..—Mr.
E. J. Chamberlin, president of I lie
Grand Trunk Railway, in a letter received by Governor Pothier today,
offers to turn over to the State ot
Rhode Island the Southern Xew
England Railroad as it now stands
as an inalienable gilt, on the condition that the State shall complete
the road and operate it in one of two
ways which the writer suggests.
The alternatives of operation are
described as  follows:

SHOULD ACT NOW.
Mr. Churchill's latest statement to
the House of Commons did not differ at all from the account he gave
in his naval "budget" of the position
of the Canadian ships. That is, they
are lo be over and above the margin
of safety fixed for the United Kingdom; but that does not mean that
they will not be needed for the defence of the Empire.
Mr. Churcnill's latest statement
docs, however, pul a new emphasis
upon the ne esslty of speed. He calculates tha our ships will be ready
in 1915; and, if this expectation Is
to be met, we can have no more delay al Ottawa. The world is moving
witli greater rapidity than ever. Military and naval preparations are being lushed on all sides.. "Speeding
up" has become a normal condition,
i. we mean business in this country,
says the Montreal Star, if we are to
take our place among the serious
nations of the world—if we are to
escape from the /'baby class" and
cease to beg that allowance be made
for us because we are so inexperienced and timorous—we must begin
to live strictly up lo our obligations,
and to do this world-business with
the snap and decision which is apparent among all the competing nations. It is no child's play on which
we are embarked—it is no iietty
party game we are playing. We have
Challenged the attention of civilization, and it is high time that we began to acquit ourselves like an adult
people.

A CONTRADICTION.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier says that
had been called upon when in office
to adopt closure, but he had "always
opposed it." There is then a straight
issue of fact between the leader of
the Opposition and his Minister of
Agriculture, says the News-Advertiser. Three times and in three different places Mr. Fisher declared in
the last general election campaign
thai the closure system would be introduced by the government after
the election, and on two of these occasions he said that he was authorized to make the announcement. We
believe that .Mr. Fisher's statement
was accurate.

The steamer Capilano unloaded

HENRIETTE SAILS.
The Grand Trunk Pacific freighter
llenrlette, which is having all the
business that she can do in the

kept busy this season carrying the
heavy freight from the south to this
port.
BUOY ADRIFT.
It is reported that the buoy on
Sparrow Hawk Rock in Cunningham
Passage, near Port Simpson, is
adrift from her position. The weather on the coast has been very severe during the past few weeks and
it is due to this fact that the buoy
has  been  carried  away.

SPORTS
GETS S2 A BALL.
Once more arises the statistician
who figures out the odd angles of
baseball. His latest researches have
to do with Joe Wood of Boston, who
was such an important factor in the
Red Sox triumph over the Giants in
the world series. Here are his statistics:
Wood pitched in 43 games last
season. At $7500 a year that would
mean about $172.09 a game. He
pitched 344 Innings—just averaging
eight innings lo a game. Thai would
be about $21.80 an inning. Not being quite so old, nor nearly so steady
as Waller Johnson, Wood wastes
more balls and more energy than
Johnson does. While "the Terrible
Swede" pitches from about 90 to
100 balls In a game of nine Innings,
"Smoky Joe" goes him about 10 better mi an average. While no statistics
have been kept, you will find Wood
averaging about 12 balls to an 'inning. So you "see Joe Wood will be
paid $1.82 every time he hurls the
borschide in a regular game of baseball this year—always assuming that
the  $7500  story  is true.
In other words. Wood threw the
ball from 4000 to 4200 times last
season, and for probably just about
the same work he is credited with
receiving $7500 this year, to say nothing of perquisites, as there's still
plenty of easy money when you only
know how to get it.
out, and young blood Is replacing
them, not in accordance with any
fixed policy of the club, but because
many of the stars of the past years
have outlived their usefulness. Old
players are never dropped from the
roster merely because they are old.
The combination of Clarke-Waguer-
Leach-Ritchey that was looked upon
as one of the most formidabb in organized baseball was first broken uu
when Claude Ritchey was let out.
Clarke was next to go, through self-
elimination and last summer a third
member of the quartette in the person of Tommy Leach was dropped.
Today   only   Hans   Wagner   remains.
It is a case of the survival of the
fittest. The big Dutchman is 39
years old. Perhaps it could be put
"39 years young," for It Is only the
lines on his face and the whitening
of his hair at the temples which indicates his age. There is nothing In
his ball playing to suggest the' advisability of his retirement from the
game. They,say he-is slowing up,
and perhaps he is, but he can alow
up a great deal more and still be
one of the world's greatest ball players. The game has not produced his
equal. He is a perfect baseball machine, and the machine will not be
clogged up in this year if early Indications count for anything. Wagner
is Hie Wagner of 1912 this spring,
and there's no telling how many
more seasons he will be playing the
most difficult position on the diamond. No man who has watched him
throughout his marvellous career
would hazard his reputation as a
prophet by predicting that this will
be Wagner's last year.
Hans Wagner will be robbing opposing players of base hits and
knocking down fences with his own
drives this summer as of yore. He
Will be running wild on the paths. He
will continue to be a terror to
pitchers, the idol of every American
youth, and one of the most talked
about, and written about men in the
United States.

GIVES GOOD ADVICE
Chief Justict Hunter Deals With Naval
Question In No Uncertain
Way.
He    Points Out What the Duty    of
Canadians Is in a Mallei of
This Kind.
Speaking In Victoria on the toast
of The Empire, Chief Justice Hunter
a few days ago traced the history
of the British race from earliest
times, pointed to the various other
races that had become blended with
it, and expressed .the opinion that
such a people must in the very nature of things become great.
"And that race has become great,
the greatest that the world has ever
seen, but not without its calamines
and its tragedies. Think of the great
nation to the south of us. I shall always consider that the greatest
calamity that has befallen the British
Empire was the secession of the
United States. A narrow-minded oligarchy in Great Britain brought
about that, and I am convinced that
if it had not happened the seat of
British power would today be located
somewhere on this North American
Continent, But, I do not believe that
that calamity is irreparable; I believe that there will yet be a reunion in some form or another of
these peoples. Whether it will be by
consolidation of all the separate
English-speaking parts, or an alliance, or what not, is really a secondary affair provided they come at
last to an understanding whereby
their difficulties would be settled
by .arbitration. That would be the
nearest thing to the stopping of future wars that we have yet attained.
If we reflect for a moment we find
that neither of these great nations,
that is Great Britain and the United
States, are in danger of invasion.
Great Britain is secure on sea and
the United States is safe on land. If
they should come together they could
establish the domination of the sea,
and they could dictate to all others
on the question of war. They would
be in a position to say to any European nation, 'you must not do this or
you will find your ports blockaded
and your trade routes cut.'
To He .Sought.
"To my mind nothing could be
more Inspiring than such a consummation. At the present lime the
British fleet is the only guarantee
that the world has of peace, but
With the United Stales and all the
parts of the Empire acting In unison
for the common end ihe menace
that threatens the peace of the
world would disappear, perhaps forever. That is an inspiring thought,
and as a Canadian it raises the question in me of what Canada is doing
in regard to it. 1 think that there is
a great responsibility resting upon
Canadians in ihis mailer, for they
represent, a very substantial portion
or the Empire referred to. They
have a very great responsibility, say,
in contributing to the support and
maintenance of the greatest police
organization of the world.
"How have we met this obligation?
We  have  been  a  confederation   fori
little short of fifty years, and what!
nave we done in the course of that'
period  toward  the maintenance and !
support  of  the   British   fleet,  or off
tiie  Empire as an  organization  for
tue preservation of the peace of the
earth? I  must, say, gentlemen, whether you like ii or not, thai she has J
not  done herself credit In  the matter of contributing  to  the support
of the  British   Empire and   what   it
means  to  the  world  al   large.
Duty of Canada,
"What is our duty in this matter?
I Will not say anything about the
permanenl policy of the Dominion
Government tor that is a question
thai Is entitled to further discussion. Bul let us consider the emergency policy. Assuming that there Is
an emergency, and the circumstances would appear to point to the
fact that there Is, then it becomes a
question thai ought not legitimately to be brought within the field of
party politics. This is not a party
question. It is not even a Canadian
question. It Is an Imperial question,
or If you like, a world question. It
affects all mankind as well as ourselves,
"Is there an emergency? For my
part 1 am content to accept the advice of the fact from the Imperial
Government. The politics of that
Government matter not at all, nor do
the politics of the Government at
Ottawa. It satisfies me that the Imperial Government has advised the
Canadian Government that there is
an emergency. I do not need, however to be satisfied In that way. The
mere fact that the Imperial Govern
ment has increased its appropriation
for the navy so enormously for the
present year over all previous years
is proof enough for me that in the
opinion of the Imperial Government
there is a grave emergency.
Germany Spending Lavishly.
"Of course, on the other hand, we
have the German Chancellor staling
publicly the other day that there is
no immediate probability of a European conflagration. That may be all
right, but then we have the German
nation spending $50,000,000 in increasing its army by means of a war
tax placed upon so-called fortunes
of $1400 a year and upwards. That
indicates a condition of things that
is very grave, indeed. It means to
Germany that strain after strain is
being put upon her people to increase the fighting strength of the
nation. It means the accenuation of
a condition ot things that is even
now almost intolerable. And it that
is not demonstration enough of the
fact that there Is an emergency.] do
not know what would satisfy some
people of the fact.
"Now assuming that there is an
emergency is there any other way of
meeting it than by giving contributions freely and voluntarily to the
Imperial Government. If there is I
am unable to see it. Some people
tell us that the money w-ould be better spent at home, but if what I say
is the fact how idle It is to talk of
spending the money in our own
country. That suggestion does not so
much appeal to our'patriotism as to
our materialism.
"Then it is also suggested that we
should have the ships stationed here.
So far as that is concerned 1 would
like to know what one battleship and
two cruisers located at Halifax would
do In the event of'a European war.
We want to have the ships in the
fighting line, right where the danger threatens and where they would
be of some service. It would be of
very little use to have a battleship
placed at Vancouver or Victoria. No
doubt the officers, could amuse themselves on the golf links, but I think
it would be better for us and for the
Imperial Government, whom we are
anxious to assist, to have them nearer the scene of action. It has always
been a fighting policy to get near
the enemy if you could not, exactly
get at (hem, and, for my part, I believe in it."
WILD HORSE HERDS.
Are Progeny    of    Animals    Turned
Loose by Men Unsuccessful in
Cariboo Gold Knsli,
COMMISSION READY
Three thousand or more wild
horses, in herds of from thirty tc
one hundred are roaming over the
hills and valleys in the interior of
British Columbia, according to a report brought by James Bradley,
who. with Gustav Reiland, a veteran
prospector and miner, known
throughout, the Bonanza gold camps,
has just returned from an extended
exploration tour of the Coast Province.
"Indians and white prospectors
and pack-train freighters value these
untamed animals more than highbred horses," said Mr. Bradley.
"They are the progeny of horses
turned loose on the trail by discouraged or dying men during the famous
gold rush in the Cariboo country.
Thousands or the veriest Menderfeet'
stampeded to the new fields in the
early 00's. Most of them were Incompetent and, in fact, utterly helpless
in that wild country, and the horses
either broke away or were abandoned when the fortune hunters gave up
on the long trail.
"The horses made their feeding
grounds In the vicinity of Barker-
ville for several years afterward, and
their offspring wandered northward
as the bands increased. They are
wild, and make trails on tbe mountains and timbered country much after the fashion of buffalo In the
early days, and deer at present,
"The Indians and freighters ivurl
Ing in  the limber    districts,    catc
them with snares, such as are use
for lynx. In most cases, the ouima
are easily broken, and they are be
ter for  the rough  country  than   tl
high-grade horses on account of tin
stamina and soreness of loot ei i
mountain trails. We lost horses fr<
our train from time to time, and
placed them with wild animals."
The Indian Question Will Be Dealt With
Now By Joint
Body.

Conferences which have recently
been in progress between the Federal
and Provincial appointees upon the
commission created by the Dominion
Government for the investigation and
determination of all matters affecting Indian lands in British Columbia,
have resulted in the mutual and
amicable agreement by these commissioners upon former Chief Justice VV'etmore of Regina—whom Mr.
Iianltaiii not long ago succeeded on
the bench—as the fifth member and
chairman of this Important tribunal;
and-ra telegram from the Right Honorable Premier Borden announces
that the formal commission will now
issue at Ottawa under the Canadian
act respecting public enquiries, so
that the work assigned to the board
may forthwith be undertaken.
The complete commission, which
consists of Hon. Mr. Wetmore, chairman; Messrs. White and McKenna,
representing the Dominion, and
Messrs. J. P. Shaw, M.P. P., and
D. H. MacDowall, Provincial appointee, will meet in this city very
shortly for organization, and will
then arrange an itinerary which will
embrace visits to every part of British Columbia.
It is expected that the important
work of investigating and determining all questions relating to Indian
reserve lands in this province will occupy considerable time.
, Terms of Agreement.
The agreement between the Federal and the Provincial authorities
in this Important matter was originally concluded September 24 last between the Prime Minister of British
Columbia, Sir Richard McBride, K.
C.M.G., acting for the province, and
Mr. J. A. J. McKenna specially
representing the Dominion, being
subsequently confirmed under Federal and Provincial orders- in-coun-
cil. These provided that the acts and
proceedings of the commission shall
be subject to the approval of the
two interested governments and
that these governments agree to
favorably consider the commission's
report whether interim or final, with
a view to giving effect so far as reasonably may be to the proceedings,
findings and recommendations of
the commission.
The agreement itsoli', acceptance
of which by the Federal authorities
lias led lo the creation of the commission, provides that this tribunal
"shall have power to adjust Ihe
acreage of Indian reserves in British
Columbia in the following manner:
"At such places as the commissioners are satisfied that, more land
is included in any particular reserve
as now defined than is reasonably required for the use of the Indians of
that tribe or locality, the reserve
shall, with the consent of the Indians as required by the Indian Act,
be reduced to si^ch acreage as the
commissioners think reasonably sufficient for the purposes of such Indians.
May Set Aside Land.
"At any place at. which the commissioners shall determine that an
insufficient quantity of land has been
set aside for the use of.the Indians i
of thai locality, Hie commissioners
shall fix the quantity that ought to
bo added for the use of such Indians, and they may also set' aside
land for any band or Indians for
whom land lias nol already been reserved,
"The prm i!ii e shall lake all such
steps as are necessary lo legally rein   ve the additional lands which the
mmisslouers shall apportion to
body of Indians in pursuance or
powers here set out. The lands
■ii the commissioners shall de-
line are nol necessary for the
of the Indians shall be subdivld-
il -ind sold by the province at pub-
