REPORTED LOAN TO G.T.P. TO EXPEDITE WORK
Ottawa, Nay 31.—It is stated in political circles that before the House prorogues a ten million dollar loan will be advanced to the G.T.P.
to enable the company to complete the undertaking. This is being done owing to the money stringency abroad and the desire on the part of
the Government to see the  work completed at the very earliest moment possible.     The loan will be followed by rapid work.
SIX CENTS DAMAGES
TO COL. ROOSEVELT
He Is Cleared Of The Charge Of Being Addicted
To Intoxicants In Libel Action By Hosts
Of Witnesses-No Order Is Made As
To Costs—Accused Admitted In
His Evidence That Charge
Was A Mistake
V
Marquette, Mich., May 31.—Col.
Roosevelt, ex-president of the United
States, has been awarded six cents
damages in a ?20,000 libel suit he
entered against Editor Geo. A.
Newett of the Iron Age who charged
that the ex-president was addicted to
drunkenness. There were no costs
assessed. The former In the witness
box admitted the charge was a mistake.
Men who have been associated
with Col. Roosevelt in public and
private life, who met 'him on the
Nile when be returned from his
African hunting trip and newspaper
men who accompanied him on his various political campaigns testified in
the libel suit against George A.
Newett that the former president
not only was not a drunkard, but
that he was notably and extremely
temperate In the use of intoxicants.
Throughout the hearing of the
case charging him with getting
drunk Col. Roosevelt t listened with
evident satisfaction to the testimony.
An important ruling was made by
Judge Richard C. Flannigan, which
in the introduction of evidence by
the defence had the effect of excluding certain kinds of hearsay testimony. This ruling came after a prolonged argument during which the
jurors were excluded from the
room, and after attorneys for Col.
Roosevelt had urged for the exclusion of a certain kind of testimony
which they said might be introduced
by the defence through depositions
taken from persons In different parts
of the country.
The effect of the ruling was that
Col. Roosevelt's general reputation
is an issue in the case and testimony
bearing upon his reputation may be
Orange Lodge Presentation.
At the meeting of the local Orange
Lodge, held on Friday evening, a
presentation was made to Rev.
Charles R. Sing of the Methodist
Church in view of his early departure from the city. Mr.1 Sing has been
chaplain of the local lodge since it
started. An address was read in connection  with  the presentation.

Almost every phase of Col. Roosevelt's public life was touched upon

Premier Borden Seems To Have A Habit Which
Is Troublesome To The Opposition Of Not
Consulting With Them Or Showing
His Hand-House To Prorogue
On June 5-Business Is
Being Rushed
There was a meeting of the council last evening to finally pass upon
the bylaws that were taken up the
early part of the week to provide for
the issue of treasury certificates by
the city, these will have to go to the
Government at Victoria to be approved of, as no issue of treasury
certificates can be made without the
consent of IQe Lieutenant-Governor-
in-Council. 'It was decided to seud
the formal request for the sanction
of the Government to Victoria by the
boat on Monday morning. A message
was read from Sir Richard McBride
in reply to one sent by the acting
mayor relative to when the matter
could be taken up by the Government. The Premier said that he
would have it taken up Wednesday
morning if the- necessary papers
were there.
On the final passing of the resolution last night, Aid. Maitland took
objection to the wording of them.
They gave the mayor the full power
to effect sale of the certificates at
such price as he saw fit. Aid. Maitland contended that this was too
great a power to put in any one
man's hands. He thought there
should be a reference back to the
council. He saw that the prices of
these debentures were now 82. He
would not be in favor of selling for
less than 95.
The motion as introduced carried.
The acting mayor pointed out that
it was useless to send a man on a
missicm like that without giving him
full power.

THE BANKERS' THUST.
J.  R.  Moore  Arrested in Seattle in
Connection With Alleged
Fraud.
J. R. Moore, formerly connected
with the Bankers' Trust Corporation,
Limited, of Victoria, B.C., was arrested in Seattle on a warrant issued at Victoria, charging conspiracy to defraud.
Mr. Moore, who is said to be wealthy and who owns a beautiful suburban home, was engaged in selling
stock in the corporation, through
the transactions of which investors,
are alleged ,to have lost between
$200,000 and $300,000.
Friends of Mr. Moore said his arrest was merely a means adopted by
Ihe British Columbia authorities to
ensure his attendance as a witness
at the trial of the officers of the
corporation, which has been set for,
September. The warrant for Mr.
Moore's arrest was issued March 22,

INFORMATION GIVEN  IN   BOUSE
BY    HON.     F.     COCHRANE
AS TO GREAT TRANSCONTINENTAL.
Ottawa, May 31.—There is the
greatest uncertainty here with respect to the future action of the
Government as' Tar as the naval question is concerned. The. policy that
the premier and his party is to pursue is kept well to themselves, while
speculation is rife In political circles
as to what it will be.
Nothing has been decided, it is
said, by the Government as to the future course that is to be followed.
There are rumors that there is to
be a short session of the House in
the autumn to deal with the ques-
lion, but this is all speculation, as
there is nothing definite regarding
the matter.
The House will prorogue June 5.
General business Is being hurried
forward now in preparation for the
prorogation.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Is Expected
to Be Finished    Next Year
Says the Minister of
Railways.
The $19,000,000 vote to cover the
estimated expenditure on the National Transcontinental Railway
came   up   for  consideration     in   the
but at that  time  Mr.  Moore was In
California.
Chief of Police J, M. Langley of
Victoria said that Mr. Moore with
others organized a large trust company and transacted a huge business
until on complaint of an investor
an investigation of the company's
methods was made. A» warrant for
the "-irrest of J. R. Moore, Franklin
C. Cook, J. O'Hara, Frank Skid-
more, R. N. O'Connor, and others,
was issued March 22. R. N. O'Connor, one of the defendants, was arrested by the Seattle police, March
23, and taken to Victoria. Mr. Moore
declined to make any statement concerning the case.
SMELTING BEFORE YEAR IS OUT
F. M. Sylvester of The Granby Company Arrived In The City On His Way To The Mines-He
Expects To Be Treating Ore Before The End Of The Season—Will Start Off With A
Capacity Of 2000 Tons A Day-Already Development Work At Hidden Creek
Mine Shows Ore Enough To Keep Work Running Continuously For Ten
Years-There Will Be A Town Of 3000 People At The Works
F. M. Sylvester of the Granby
Company arrived in the city yesterday morning by the Prince Rupert
on his way to Granby, He lefl last
night for the smelter town. His visit
is one of general inspection and Is
not in connection with the recent accident that happened there. Speaking
to The Journal, Mr. Sylvester said
that the material loss through the
bursting of the dam would not be
great. It would take only about three
or four months to replace it. The
loss of the two who were drowned,
however, he and his officers felt.
The accident came through no fault
in the construction work. The dam
burst because of the fact that the
work was not far enough advanced
to withstand the pressure. The work
that had  been  done  had  not  been
expensive, as it was shot in by a
single, blast. There will be no delay
in righting the matter and a dam
will be put in place that will withstand the pressure. There was no
fault  in  construction  originally.
Mr. Sylvester says that the, construction of the smelter will proceed
now with all 'dispatch. As fast as the
material can be got on the ground
It will be put In place. From now
on the machinery will be arriving.
Before the end of the year it is
expected that the company will be
able to blow in and start the
handling of the ore. The capacity of
the smelter at the start will be 2000
tons a day. At the same time the
works are being constructed so that
they may be doubled In capacity
without any alterations     The plant
will simply have to be added to to
that extent so that tbe outpul will
be 4000 tons a day then.
The ore at the Hidden Creek Mine
is .becoming almost a Belf-fluxlng
ore. There will require to be little
outside of the output of the mine
to allow of the smelting operations
going along continuously. Some limestone will he needed for fluxing purposes. This can be obtained in quantity on Portland Canal. The Granby
Company will be in the market for
custom ore and as time goes along
the company may acquire additional
properties in the north. The Immense
body of ore in the Hidden Creek
Mine, however, will not make it absolutely necessary to have properties
outside of the big mine of the company.
Work on ihe railway line thai is
to connect the mine with the smelter
Is progressing well and should be
completed about July. By that time
the putting in of the smelter machinery will bo In full swing.
With respect to the townsite proposition, .Mr. Sylvester says his company is nol proposing to make that
a feature. It is true thai the company
might have made a lol of money by
floating a townsite, This they decided not to do, however. It is nol tbe
intention to have any speculation
with respect to the townsite. When
In running order there will be
a population of at least 3000 people
in the town, which will mean a very
prosperous little centre, it is not the
design of the smelter company,
however, to exploit the townsite and
inns raise money.
House of Commons a few days ago
in connection with the railway estimates.
Hon. George P. Graham criticized
the minister of railways for having
consented to a change in the grades
on the uncompleted section of the
Wlnnipeg-Moncton  section.
He maintained that the substitution of a large number of momentum grades aloftg the railway would
militate against the efficiency of the
route. Operating railway men, he
said, had informed him that except
when all conditions are normal, these
grades would reduce the hauling capacity of the engines, increase the
liability of accidents and the wear
and tear on the rolling stock. Ho
also maintained that the cost of construction would nol be materially
reduced, and advised the minister
to make certain that he was not doing something which would give tho
Grand Trunk an excuse for not Inking over the road when completed,
lion. Frank Cochrane, in his reply, quoted the opinion of several
prominent engineers, including Mr.
Tye, formerly chief engineer for tho
C.P.R.,   to  the    effeel     thai     new

TO EXPEDITE ROAD.
The despatches from Ottawa this
morning indicate that the Government is preparing to assist the Grand
Trunk Pacific in Ihe financing of the
last sections of the road, and in so
doing will see that the road is completed just as fast as the rails can
be laid. There has been an evident
desire on the part of the Government
ever since it came into power to see
that the lino was hurried along. At
' first the anxiety that was shown in
this direction was taken by many as
indicating a desire on the part of the
Government to "get after" the Grand
Trunk Pacific. There has never been
anything to indicate that the Government had any but the most
friendly feelings to the railway company. It is true that the policy re-
pecting the line was not in all respects pleasing to the Conservative
party when the scheme was floated.
It is equally true that subsequent developments in connection with the
line have indicated that the Government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier was woefully at sea in this same undertaking.
At the same time the Grand Trunk
Pacific was floated and carried along
certain well defined lines. It has
never been the policy of the Conservative party to destroy the enterprises that exist in the country. The
policy is rather to foster and encourage the fullest development of
the country by encouraging capital
to invest here. The Grand Trunk Pacific will be one of the great highways of the Dominion. The company
will have the heartiest co-operation
of the Government of Premier Borden in developing the great trade
that is to be built up by it. If the
reports that come from Ottawa now
be correct the Government is going
to assist in the work of completing
the line in a most substantial way.
This will be good news to the residents of Prince Rupert, for this city
is closely wrapped up with the early
completion of the line. Anything that
will assist the company in getting
into order for entering upon a
through traffic will bo of immense
moment to the citizens of this, the
terminal point of the railway.
KEEPS THEM GUESSING.
Premier Borden is showing a disposition to keep the Liberals in the
Dominion in a spirit of intense unrest. Apparently they are all to be
doomed to disappointment. It has
been the hope of the Liberals ever
siuce tho change of government that
an appeal lo tho country might he
brought on in the possible hope that
!!'<■ elei torate might In- fooled into
nil inn them back i o\\ er again.
'!,; en been little likelihood that
lit.  un  an  appeal to
the country the Liberals would find
themselves utterly discredited, It is
safe to promise. But on the other
hand, Premier Borden has not had
long to get things settled down and
show what his general policy is to
he. There has been evidence enough
that it is to be a policy of stable
government and progressive in every
way. A few years more will serve to
show the beneficent effects of the
business-like administration that "the
Conservative party  has  introduced.
The Liberals have been trying to
persuade themselves that an election
is possible and that they have a
chance of winning. On both counts
they are likely to be altogether
vrong. Why should Premier Borden
appeal to the country before the
proper time? Il would not be necessary to do so because the moribund
Grils in the Senate say he should do
it. Should he take the senators at
their word and appeal to the country
on this question, what would be the
attitude of that self-same Senate
should the bill again come up in the
same form? It is safe to promise that
even If the choice of the people was
strongly in favor of it, as it assuredly would be, that same Senate would
again vote the hill down on the selfsame division.

THE  MONEY  MISSION.
To the Citizens of Prince Rupert:
Ladies and gentlemen,—In the
frequent times my name may have
annoyed you in print, there has been
none of such vast importance as the
present. Our civic administration has
thought it prudent to advise our
chief magistrate, Mr. T. D. Pattullo,
to visit the Eastern and European
money markets for the purpose of
making a successful sale of our
40-year interest-bearing 5 per-cent,
bonds, in order to consolidate our
municipal debt and to further secure
a plentitude of funds to perpetuate
municipal labor in the development
of further street grading, water and
sewer extension. The motive was a
praiseworthy one, in the effort of
bond sales of 40 years dating, but in
reading the latest letter from our
worthy mayor, dated at Montreal, in
which he instructs his council to
seek permission from the Provincial
Government to grant permission to
the Municipality of Prince Rupert to
issue some two million dollars in
three years 6 per cent, interest bearing treasury certificates, 1 believe it
high time for the ratepayers of
Prince Rupert to call a halt.
The consolidation of our municipal debt into a 4 0-year extension
of credit at a 5 per cent, rate of interest, for which a sinking fund can
be provided for the ultimate cancellation, is one feature of good financing, but when the ratepayers are requested without their permission to
subscribe or consent to a further issuance of three-year treasury certificates, making the total issue nearly
$3,000,000, redeemable In so short a
time, to me seems almost disastrous.
When the late council retired from
office our municipal indebtedness
did not total more than one and one-
half million dollars, for which bonds
were in possession of the Bank of
Montreal for some $1,300,000; the
balance was our current account.
'Ibis debt in every possible manner
should have been secured and liquidated by the sale of bonds already
issued and, a further issue of bonds

liability, bul the Incurring of further

stringency we are now enduring continue for three years the result will
be that our bonds will be worth next

The Inflated values of-,our real

institutions do not. desire to encourage further unnecessary development, or the Incurring of unwarranted indebtedness, until some substantial natural resource or Industrial development guarantees the
permanent gijowth of our town and
assures the substantial values of our

HOW HE FOUND
BLONDE ESKIMOS
V. STEFANSSON, IN LECTURE BEFORE   THE    GEOGRAPHICAL
SOCIETY, DESRIBED HIS
TRAVELS.
The Explorer Showed  That  It  Was
Not a Very Difficult Task to
Travel Through   the
North.
An entertaining lecture delivered
by Mr. Vilhjalmur Stefansson before
the members of the Royal Geographical Society in tbe Theatre,
Burlington-gardens, recently, was
descriptive of several years' experience of a young, bold, determined
explorer of the northern coastline of
Canada and Its peoples Mr. Stefansson started in April, 1908, from
New York, and returned last summer, after traveling thousands of
miles with probably the smallest
amount of baggage and equipment
ever carried by an explorer. The
traveler purposely avoided impeding
his progress by having to provide
animals for a heavy baggage train,
and in the many beautiful photographs shown of the tiny expedition
there was never more than one
sledge and one dog team.
Mr, Stefansson explained that a
white man, with a modern rifle and
a sufficient supply of ammunition,
could go over the whole of the discovered land in the Arctic. His purpose was to discover Eskimos who
had, never seen a white man. When
he left the train and stage coach in
the Athabasca Valley he traveled
2000 miles in an open boat to the
Mackenzie River, which empties itself in tiie Arctic Ocean. His most
important work was done without
any supplies except photographic
and writing materials and his rifle.
When he got to the Arctic Ocean he
had overlooked the important item
of matches. He went to the North-
West Mounted Police Station on
Herschell Island lo try to get some,
but the commander of the post disapproved of his plan of exploration,
saying that only one of two things
could happen to him—if he went
east he would become a charge on
the Eskimos, or he should die of
starvation. As Ihe representative of
the Canadian Government he did nol
wish either of those events to occur,
and he therefore refused to sell
matches.
That, said Mr. Stefansson, compelled him to proceed 400 miles
westward to Point Harrow, making
him lose a whole year and half of
the total cost of the expedition, during which he collected 40,000 specimens, was occasioned by that trip to
purchase matches. He explored the
Horton River. Before proceeding up
tnat waterway he cut aboul 100
pounds of meat from a whale which
had been dead four years, intending
to use it for dog meat, but he ran
oui of provisions and had to eat it.
People would say it must have been
evil-smelling stuff, but it was too
old for that. (Laughter.) It was like
felt, with a bitter taste. (Laughter.)
After mapping the Morton River, he
set out along the coast of the Arctic
Ocean east of Cape Parry, to try and
get hold of the Eskimos he was In
search of before the missionary and
the trader could contaminate them.
(Laughter.)
Some Eskimos who were with him
buill an ideal boat out of sealskin
stretched on a frame. It was very
light, but of groat strength. Two
men could carry it, though it wajs
efficient I'm- a load of considerably
over a ion. During the whole of the
nil. ho depended on the country for
food, and  lie never  went   «Ithoul   I
in in, althougl ne breakfast he
had  to divide ;■    ptarmigan    a]
le. After a journey ol' ::" -
i ii. I    i.i   I'nii,-   I'niTi    11   0    VI
toria  Land he found  a     - 111
houses, but in the middle of Dolphin
ami Union strait he came upon a
village Inhabited by thirty-seven oi
tin- people ].<■ had set out to find.
The Eskimos treated liini hospitably,
told him they would provide food,
and EurniBhed him with a new snow
bouse, skins and a lamp, On the
four!hv'Jby the children began to cry
for food, which was scarce, and he
decided to move on.
While .Mr. Stefansson was in this
district he- visited fourteen tribes,
only four of whom bad previously
been seen by a white man. He spent
a year wltii them, ami of the 800 or
900 people be saw fully 50 per cent.
of the men had beards ranging in
color from shiny black to light byoy Ii
and quite 60 per cent, had blonde
eyebrows. Somo had light blue eyes
and reddish beards. He thought
these people were probably descendants of a    flourishing    colony

was exercised on the Eskimos of 'he
Mackenzie River district, 'he Lsk'jno
population had fallen from '000 to
nbout forty, and the survivors cnew-
ed tobacco, and drank tea and coffee, and hardlv one of thorn "as
decently clothed. They were 1'ery different from the tribes in the east,
who had no wnnls except those
which could be provided for by the
districts in which they lived. From
his observation be believed the effect
of missionary and trailing enterprise
had been detrimental to the physical
and moral well-being of ilie Eskimos. Speaking of his geographical
■work, Mr. Stefansson stated that he
had found there were a good many
things on tho map of Canada which
God had not put on the face of the
earth. In a couple of sentences at
the end of his lecture Mr. Stefansson
referred to the new expedition he
was aboul to lead in the Arctic zone.
He said the unexplored area in the
Arctic was something like a million
square miles. He would approach it
from the Behring Straits in July,
and in August he would cruise north
hoping to find land where he could
make his base. Ten scientific men
would accompany the expedition.
Mr. Douglas Freshfield, who pre-
sidede, said the expenses of the new
expedition wouid be met almost entirely by the Dominion Government.
They all owed their thanks to Mr.
Borden and his colleagues for the
large view they had taken of the
responsibility of the Government in
furthering scientific exploration to
the utmost of their power. (Cheers.)
PROGRESS BEING MADE.
(Continued From Page One)
grades on the N.T.R. would not in
the slightest degree reduce the hauling capacity of the engines and that
changes in grades, by reducing the
cost of construction and thereby the
interest charges, constitute a good
business  proposition.
At the request of Hon. George
Graham, the minister made a statement, as to the progress made on the
railway. The only section of the
line on which track has not been laid
from Winnipeg to Moncton, is part
of district C-D extending for about
sixty miles. This is on the line between Cochrane and Quebec.
In New Brunswick tho grading
and track-laying are bo^h completed
and the bridges are ninety-eight per
cent, completed. In the first 562
miles in Quebec, district E, the grading is completed for 509 miles and
the track-laying for 500 miles of
main and 74 miles of siding. In district C-D, which includes 412 miles
west of St. Lawrence towards Cochrane, grading is completed for 393
miles, and track-laying for 352
miles. District E,i ncluding Cochrane
and up to 175 miles from Superior,
has the track laid on 155 miles,
while grading is completed for 158
miles. In district F, the most westerly, extending to Winnipeg, Ihe grading is all completed and the track
Is laid for 382 miles of main line, Including double track from Transcona
in Winnipeg and 132 miles of sidings.
The total expend il ure to the end
of December lasi was $127,219,863,
and Hie estimate of the expenditure
necessary to complete is $35,087,937.
It Is expected that the line will be
finished to Cochrane this fall, and by
next year to Quebec, when it, is
hoped to have the car ferry in operation at that point. The contract between Quebec and the New Brunswick boundary will be finished In
September next.
In reply to Sir Wilfrid Laurier Mr.
Cochrane stated that it was expected
that the Grand Trunk Pacific would
be completed from Winnipeg to the
Pacific in 1914.
Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux made a
strong plea for the construction of a
line to connect Montreal with the
main line of the N.T.R. He cited
the proposals made for aid to two
roads and asked the minister for a
statement.
Mr. Cochrane answered that a subsidy had been granted last year to
the James Bay Railway, but. that
company had found itself unable to
proceed with the work and was asking for further aid. He hoped to be
able to make a statement by Friday.
This line would shorten the distance
from Montreal to Winnipeg by 150
miles. Mr. Ames urged that the line
between .Montreal and the N.T.P.
should be constructed by the Government as part of that system. An
Independent company would be apt
to build an inferior line and the people of Montreal would also prefer to
deal  with one instead of two lines.
