PROSPECTS BRIGHT
FOR ISLAND ROAD
Press of That Party Takes Objection To Celebration—Says Imperialists See In Nationality Their Chief Enemy And Want
To Uproot It Consolidating the
Whole British Empire Into One Whole
There is every prospect that the
road around the Island here will
soon be started up again. There
has been some little delay in this undertaking owing to the fact that the
Government could not see its way
clear to doing the whole of the work
in view of the fact that the Grand
Trunk Pacific was heavily interested
In the area that would be opened up
and would be a benefit to the com.-
pany. Correspondence has been passing in the matter and the vice-president of the company, M. Donaldson
while here last, conferred with Mr.
Manson, the local member, in this
matter.
It now looks    as    though    there
WISHES TO LAY
HEMLOCK FOR FIR
3. A.    MEEKER HAS HAD    DIFF1-
CULTY IN GETTING THE
LUMBER  AGREED
UPON.
The Closing Up of the Oreau Falls
Mills  Has  Interfered With
the Contractor's
Plans.
The request was made to the city
council last evening at the instance
of J. A. Meeker, one of the contractors who is to lay plank roads
in Section Two, in which he desired
that the city engineer should grant
permission to substitute hemlock
for fir covering. This will be taken
up by the public works committee
with power to act.
Mr. Meeker, in his letter which
was addressed to the engineer, explained that he had made arrangements with the Ocean Falls Company
to supply the fir lumber and to take
the debentures in pay for It. The
company was not now in a position
to provide the lumber and he could
not secure it elsewhere on the same
terms. He, therefore, desired to be
permitted to change the decking to
hemlock. If this were done he would
be able to make a reduction of $1
a  thousand  on the lumber  used.
It was explained in the letter that
while hemlock might not be quite as
strong as fir it would wear quite as
long. Moreover, the hemlock lumber
could be obtained locally, this being
a benefit to the city.

COMPLETING LINE.
Reporting J. W. Stewart In
Vancouver, the News-Advertiser
says: "It is expected that the
last spike in the Grand Trunk
Pacific construction will be driven late this year somewhere between Fort George and Fraser
Lake to the east of the summit.
On the eastern section the grading has all been completed from
railhead to Bulkley Summit, a
distance of about 100 miles, but
the laying of steel will be delayed pending the construction
of several bridges, although it
is anticipated that steel will
reach the summit by September,
leaving about 160 miles between that point nnd Fort
George, all that territory now
being covered with construction
gangs and the work well on towards completion."
would be a settlement reached and
work would be allowed to begin
upon the undertaking, which is estimated to cost in the neighborhood
of $150,000. The Grand Trunk Pacific, with many undertakings in the
city, felt a little loathe to start in
on any new one. It has however,
come to the* conclusion that the time
Is very close when the work will be
needed, and the company will take
a share in the cost. The question of
tne exact proportions upon which the
work will be paid for has yet to be
worked out between the two parties
concerned, but it looks as if the undertaking would not be held up.
The Government is now anxious,
says Mr. Manson, to get started on
the road, which will mean so much
to tho city of Prince Rupert. The
Grand Trunk Pacific is also showing
its interest and it is evident that the
company intend to make this one of
the best of cities on the Coast. It is
known that President Chamberlin
is alive to the immense importance
of the city. With that in view, it is
said that he has insisted upon the
hotel that is to be erected here being the second best in the system of
hotels that is being erected across
the continent. It will, in fact, be excelled in accommodation only by the
Chateau Laurier. at Ottawa. 'Mr.
Chamberlin is reported to have said
that the whole of the hotel will be
needed, and that as quickly as it can
be got up. He realizes that there is
to be an immense influx of tourists
here and the road about the Island
is one of the necessary attractions
that will be required In the city and
about it. It is evident, therefore,
that within a very few weeks the
road about the Island and the colossal liotel and terminals of the railway company will be under construction In preparation for the thousands
that are to find their way to this
city in the next year.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Denies
Reported Threat
Ottawa, May 27.—Sir Wilfrid Laurier on a question of privilege in the House today, referring to an article in the press to the
effect that he had issued an ultimatum to the "Senate to throw out
tho Naval Bill or he would resign tho leadership of the party, declared there was no foundation for the story.
BRITISH LIBERALS
0PP0SEEMPIRE DAY
The G.T.P. And The Government Are Still Negotiating—Railway Expresses Its Willingness To Take a Share In The Undertaking — Question Of Proportions All That Separates
the Parties Now
London, IUay 27.—The Empire
Day movement is beliltied here by
the Liberal press. The Chronicle
says of the Empire Day celebration
at Queen's Hall at which the two
Australian premiers were present
that, the representatives f.f the Dominions were inveigled into the ball
and their speeches formed a mere
chorus to the utterances of the Unionist speakers. Such party episodes
it says are regrettable.
The Daily News says the Imperialists see in Nationality    their    chief
enemy and are desirous of uprooting
it in Africa, Canada and Australia,
and substituting a consolidation of
the whole Empire into one whole.
The paper concludes by stating that
the flabby sentimentality associated
With Empire Day is the worst enemy
the Empire has.
Empire Day was celebrated in the
schools, the celebrations being considerably more general than in
previous years. It is estimated that
5,000,000 children saluted the flag
in England alone.

Says the London correspondent of the Montreal Star: "The
directors of Ihe Grand Trunk
Pacific are considering the construction of a number of vessels
for use on both the Atlantic and
the Pacific. It is stated that the
tonnage of this new line will be
large. Final details have not yet
been decided, but it is anticipated that within eighteen
months the new transcontinental
will be able to transport passengers from England, not only
to the Canadian seaboard, but
thence to the eastern hemisphere, either via Liverpool or

Meteorological Report.
May  27,     5  p.m.—Bar.,     39.859;
max., 55.0;  min., 46.0.
In a few weeks It is probable that
there will be a start made on the
Provincial Government buildings on
the 'Market Place. William Manson,
who has been in conference with the
Government at Victoria concerning
the matter, is now In the city and
expects that Architect Cox will be
here in a few days' time to go more
fully into the whole matter, looking
to the selection of the stone for the
building along the lines of the plan
that he will thep have well completed.
The Government, Mr, Manson
says, is not going to spare expense
on the buildings in making them a
credit to the city. The plans will be
on a striking order and the building?
will be among the best, in the province of British Columbia. Mr. Cox
will, when he comes here, go very
fully into the whole question of the
stone for the structure and will decide what, will be done in that line.
Work will start soon upon the excavations that may be necessary to
have carried out on the site and on
the triangular parks that lie in front
of the site.
In the meantime, pending the
completion of these buildings that
will take a year or two to build, the
I^OYggnment .has finally decided to
[ hav6Weeti(i amthe~site of the present Government °Bh"Hdings a temporary building that will provide the increased accommodation that is needed by the various departments of the
Government here. This will be a
plain two-storey building, fronting
on Third avenue, and in this there
will be the accommodation for the
court with court room, judges' room,
lawyers' quarters and all the other
necessary accommodation that may
be required. There will be other offices provided for on the lower floor
of the building so that there will not
be the same crowding of the work
as there is at the present time.
Tjie arrangements in connection
with the approach for foot passengers to the Government Wharf
by way of McBride street are well
in hand also, and there will be an
early start made in this undertaking.
Some rock filling will be necessary,
taking care of the excavations from
the Market Place site of the courthouse.

House of Commons
Yesterday.
Ottawa, May 27.—The railway department estimates, more particularly those relating to the Intercolonial, occupied the attention of
the House of Commons until late
last night.
Port Nelson was confirmed as the
terminus on the Hudson Bay of the
railway to that great body of water.
Building Inspector.
P. Lorenaon has been appointed
building inspector for the city. Mr.
Oakley, of the engineer's office, who
has been acting, is too busy in the
office and it has been found necessary to appoint another.
Vienna, May 27.—Bulgaria regards war as inevitable with Servia.
The latter's demand for a revision of
the alliance treaty Is regarded as an
ultimatum and will be followed by
war.  Troops are mussed  near Sofia.
The Greeks and Bulgarians have
been engaged In serious fights in the
vicinity of Salonika. The Greeks are
reported to be losing heavily.
Recent fighting led to the establishment of a neutral zone near
Salonika, but on May 20 a strong
Bulgarian force with artillery violated the zone and were hotly opposed
by the Greeks.
The London Times'    Salonika cor
respondent says that the fighting
between the Bulgarians and Greeks
continued the whole clay, apparently
witli great fury. Artillery was freely
used to cover the Infantry attack.
A Sofia despatch lo the Times
says thai a definite territorial agreement exists between Servia and
Greece, excluding Bulgaria from all
tho region west of the Rivers Vurdnr
and Bregalnltza. By this agreement
Greerti would obtain Salonika, Fiorina, Vodcna, Kukiiss, Seros, Rama
and Kavala; Servia getting Ktrugii,
Ochrlda, Monastlr and Perlepe.
Servian and Greek objections are
still delaying the assembly of the
peace conference  In  London.
Aviators Race With Death
Salisbury, Eng., May 27.—Voloplanlng from n height of 1200

who waB at the wheel, were scorched by the flames. A spectacular
race with death Was won by the air-men.

Vernon, May 27.—True bills have

fact that feeling at Clinton ran so

PUBLIC RESOURCES.
T. R. Ferguson, K.C., of Winnipeg, has been appointed by the Government to make a thorough Investigation Into the alienation of the
public resources under the    Laurier
The rich agricultural valley known
as Bella.Coola is looking in splendid
shape this spring, says William Man-
son, the member for the district, who
has just come from there. He visited
the valley on his way back from
Victoria, spending Empire Day there
and enjoying the sports that were
put on on that occasion. It was a
grand celebration, he says, and the
gathering at the centre of the community was a credit to that section
of the province. The sports were all
hotly contested and a most enjoyable
time was spent  there.
In the valley there is e-xcitement
over the prospects of a railway connection being afforded within a short
time with the outside world by way
of the route of the Grand Trunk Pacific, which will he intersected by
any railway that will come there in
all probability. The centre Is feeling
the advantages that come with the
putting in of the telegraph line to
that part of the province by tbe
Dominion Government. This has been
a great boon to the settlers and the
residents of the town. They appreciate the valued service which this
has been and are loud in praise of
the member, II. S. Clements, for the
expeditious way in which the work
was carried into effect.
In the valley, Mr. Manson says,
the Provincial Government is making preparations for extensive extensions of the roads Hiis season. The
bridge thai has been constructed
across Canoe River has given them
ilio opportunity to continue the
roads Into the great areas thai lie
beyond I he valley and Into the rich
country that finds an outlet through

on the roads and bridges there this
year and It. is the Intention to give
the settlers the most valuable service In this line thai can be afforded

Mr. Manson says there Is no question as to the future of the valley.

AN UNNATURAL
BOUNDARY LINE
JUST BEFORE THE RUSH.
Il is evident that the City of
Prince Rupert is experiencing its
final lull before the mad rush that is
imminent. That rush will mark the
springing up of a great commercial
city, where for the past few years
there has existed in reality a con
struction camp at the base of supply
on the line of railway. What this
final awakening of the city will
mean is more than any can foretell.
The most sanguine with respect to
the future may all have fallen below
the mark. Certainly there has never
been a city start off exactly like this
one in the past. Here is the foundation being laid for enterprises on the
most gigantic scale. Terminals for
the railway, hotels of colossal size
to handle the immense tourist trade
that is to come here, drydocks and
shipbuilding yards that rival anything on the Coast, fishing and cold
storage plants on a scale that has
never before been attempted on the
Pacific. Scenic roads about the great
natural park that lies behind the
City costing $150,000, buildings for
the Provincial and for the Dominion
governments that will cost about a
million dollars when completed a>e
all under way in this city in preparation for the great city tha' is to
rise on the site of Prince Rupert
The time for the utilization of all
these is close at hand. Only months
separate us from that time. Prince
Rupert will, therefore, see a development that must cause the optimists
that are here to rub their eyes and
ascertain for sure that they are seeing instead of dreaming.
The outside world is going to
awaken to the facts that are connected with this city and which are
here enumerated to some extent.
When they do this city is going to
see the greatest boom on the continent. It will come in the course of
a few weeks, for there is only a limited time to get ready for the industrial development that the city is
to see.
MAY BE SOON THROUGH.
The indications now seem to point
to an earlier completion of the
Grand Trunk Pacific than has for
some little time been anticipated.
This year may quite possibly see the
line laid, perhaps not in the very
best of shape throughout, for the
opportunity will not be afforded under these circumstances for the ballasting of all the road on the plans
adopted by the company In its work.
This being the case, the development of the city must he very marked almost immediately. Prince Rupert's growing time Is nt hand. With
the Improved condition of the money
markets this will be expedited, unci
Strip Along the Coast   Is     Proposed
to     Be   Handed   Over  lo     Canada by the United
States,
To give to the Dominion of Canada the big strip of land now Included in the territory of Alaska,
and extending southward along the
western coast of North America, is
the idea contained in a lengthy resolution introduced into the House of
Representatives by Representative
.1. H. Stephens, of Texas. The resolution is framed at the request of the
Peace Union of Philadelphia,
If the resolution is adopted the
President will be requested to communicate witli the British Government with a view to appointing an
International Commission to inquire
whether a feasible plan may be found
for rectifying the boundary line of
Southeastern Alaska for the advantage of both nations.
Tbe reasons given by Mr. Stephens in his resolution are briefly that
too large a territory of Canadian
country is shut off from direct communication with the Pacific.
"Yukon Territory, the northern
half of British Columbia, and almost
the entire Mackenzie Basin," says
the resolution, "an aggregate nearly
as large as the portion of the United
States lying east of the Mississippi,
with a climate like that of Scotland, Scandinavia or Russia as far
south as Moscow, are shut off from
the use of the most direct route to
the Pacific, by the coast line of
Southeast Alaska, 536 miles long
and in some places only eight or ten
miles wide."
The resolution contends that this
is an unnatural boundary created to
meet conditions long since passed
away, and now a hindrance to the
development of both countries. It
stales that the situation gives rise
to irritation and is bound to become
a bone of contention of no mean
proportion as time passes.
The resolution urges that this
would be an unique opportunity for
the United States to show its real
leadership in the world-wide peace
movement by a concession, the like
of which has never been seen In the
world before.
before many weeks pass the city
should be enjoying a prosperity
greater than any other city on the
coast.

SPORTS
GOTOH'S TOM HOLD.
It is the fear of tbe terrible toe
hold that foreign wrestlers have that
defeats them before they go into the
ring with Frank Gotch. This, at
least, is tbe opinion of Gotch himself, expressed when he was in Chicago, and discussed his recent bout
in Kansas City with George Lurich,
the Russian.
This was described by the Kansas
City sport writers as an easy thing
for the Humboldt man, tbty claiming that Lurich did not show anywhere near as well against the champion as he did against some of the
lesser lights that he tackled there
In previous matches.
That was perfectly natural, for a
champion is supposed to show superiority over all of them. But
Gotch has his own explanation of the
situation, that developed just before
and immediately after Lurich faced
him  in  the  ring.
"This toe hold of mine—of course
other wrestlers use It, but it generally has been credited to me as being something of my own invention
—has been the talk of Europe ever
since I defeated Hackenschniiilt the
first time," Gotch said. "Remember
that I have been over there and
know just how they feel about it.
"Of course it gets noised around
for wrestlers are no different from
any other kind of people, and do a
lot of gossiping among themselves. I
^eard some of this while I was over
there, and know that the Europeans
look upon me as being some sort of
a terrible animal.
"Naturally, this gossip goes from
one to another, and the stories do
not lose anything by repetition. They
think over there that all I do is to
get the toe hold, or try to get it, all
the time I am wrestling.
"As a matter of fact, I have used
it but seldom, and do not now recall that I ever won a fall with it
in an important match. Wrestlers
over here know that I use it more
for a feint than anything else.
"It Is useful for that, especially
when an opponent has his legs tightly clamped together. Well, at any
rate, when Lurich was preparing for
the ring, he was talking excitedly in
German to his handlers, and the
whole gist of the conversation was
on the  toe hold.
"When finally we were ready to
begin and started for the ring, I
noticed that he was as white as
chalk, and looked about as nervous
as any man 1 ever saw. This didn't
wear off at all after we got started,
and he kept jerking bis feet and legs
away from me in a horrified manner
every time I reached for him.
"I knew what he was thinking of,
and naturally kept him worried by
feinting at him. This made him forget all that he seemed to know about
ordinary wrestling, and naturally
made him easy."
 o	
A young sport, very loudly dressed, went into a cafe and ordered a
veal cutlet. The waiter brought the
order.
"Say," bawled the sport, In a loud
voice, "do you call this a veal cutlet? Why, it's an insult to a calf to
call that a veal cutlet."
"Beg pardon," said the waiter,
politely, "I didn't mean to insult
you, sir."

PRiNCE RUPMRT JOUKNAL.
FRIENDSHIP WAS
VOWED OVER DEAD
KING GEORGE AND GERMAN EM-
PEROR,     IT IS SAID,    SO
ACTED  AT TIME OF
CEREMONIES.
The Death    of Laic    King    Edward
linmglii   the Royal Cousins
Very Close   to   One
Another,
The following interesting and
probably true narrative is current as
explaining tbe close personal intimacy that has been shown during the
present Berlin gathering of inon-
archs, between the Kaiser and King
George, says the London correspondent of the .Montreal Star.
There was an admitted coolness between the late King Edward and the
Kaiser for two or three years before
the former died. It arose from a
rather ill-advised letter the German
Emperor wrote the late King, and
from which the Englisn ruler took
great offence. He said so in a terse
reply which he wrote the Kaiser, but
the latter refused to withdraw his
written opinion. Their mutual relations, as a result, became of the
most formal character.
This quarrel, however, was never
allowed to interfere with the affectionate friendship that has existed
for many years between the Kaiser
and the Prince who is now- His Majesty. Their meeting after the death
of King Edward was most touching
in its intensity and mutual esteem.
Before the Emperor returned to Berlin this close and devoted friendship
■was solemnly cemented in circumstances not a little dramatic. The
two monarchs had been discussing
events In general and the question
came up as to the future relations
between England and Germany. Almost as a matter of course, the King
then remarked that, whatever he-
tide, it was his hope that they personally would always remain on the
same terms of intimacy and good-
fellowship.
"Come with me," said the Emperor quietly, and he led the way
to the apartment where the mortal
remains of King Edward rested.
There the two monarchs joined
hands and vowed eternal friendship
in terms dictated by the Emperor,
that they would do all in their power
not only to preserve the peace of

cidents and much loss of life. Captains show from their experiences
that in heavy weather their vessels
have not sufficient reserve buoyancy
to avoid the heavy seas which sweep
over their decks, carrying away
everything in their path. No amount
of theory can possibly estimate the.
dangers of overloading as applied to
actual seafaring conditions.
The guild have repeatedly agitated upon this subject, and many questions have been asked in the British
House of Commons, with the result
that the president of the board of
trade has now appointed a committee which, with the exception of the
nautical adviser to the hoard of
trade, consists entirely of naval
architects and engineering experts.
This committee is for the purpose of
advising as to the Instructions to be
given lo the British delegates at the
forthcoming international conference
mi load line tables. To the constitution of this committee the guild
have, on behalf of the captains and
officers of the merchant service,
ftiised objections. They, as solely responsible for safety of life at sea,
have been given no opportunity of
representation.
Correspondence has recently passed between the guild and the board
of trade, but the latter body remain
obdurate, and decline to allow direct
representation of seafarers. The
board are prepared to receive evidence from seafaring men or others,
but the guild has informed Mr. Buxton that one of the greatest difficulties which they have to encounter in
this matter is that the lips of commanders and officers in active service are practically sealed. They
cannot tender evidence on such matters for the reason that it would be
prejudicial to their present and future employment, however strongly
they may feel on the increased risks
they are required to lake.

REVISING  RULES.
When the freeboard tables were
revised in 1905 permitting the deeper loading of British ships a feeling
of indignation was aroused amongst
seafarers who realized that the deeper immersion of their vessels would
mean less security to life at sea.
Lord Muskerry, on behalf of the Imperial Merchant Service Guild, raised
the strongest objections in the
House of Lords to this dangerous innovation. He complained that captains aiid officers who had to navigate the ships in all conditions of
-weather, and who knew exactly their
behaviour from actual practice were
not consulted. From that time the
guild have received from all parts of
the world communications containing the opinions of its members who
have ascribed the deeper immersion
of ships as responsible for many ac-
The city is to have another hose
automobile. Last week, P. R. Brown,
representing the Seagrave Company,
which furnished the present auto
wagon in use, put forward a proposition to the city. The council last
night endorsed the proposition for
the purchase of an additional auto
at a cost of $7650. The new one will
resemble the present one in use, being a combined chemical and hose
wagon.
The committee in cnarge last night
reported in favor of the purchase.
On motion of Aid. Sutherland the report was adopted and the auto will

INTERNATIONAL RULES.
A conference of the leading maritime nations of the' world will be
held in London early next autumn
with the purpose of establishing on
an international basis the new regulations for the safely of life and
property at sea.
In June or July an informal consultation will be held, at which time
the report of the committee on bulkheads, appointed to advise as to the
water-tight subdivision of all merchant ships, will be available.
Meanwhile the different countries
concerned are making preparations,
and so far as the life saving rules
are concerned, opinions have been
interchanged for some time. The
new International Radio-telegraphic
Convention will come into operation
next July. This Is the outcome of the
International Wireless Convention
held in London last summer.

jj GROSSING THE OCEAN jj
**************************
Some day the Atlantic Ocean will
be crossed by a flying machine—of
that those who have followed the
development of the aeroplane from
its fledgling flights in 1908 to the
recent Paris-Berlin trip are fully
convinced. Lord Northcliffe's generous offer of a $50,000 prize for the
achievement will bring that day
measureably nearer than may be
suspected, even though it does nothing more than )to arouse a world-
wide, interest in the performance of
one of the most difficult technical
achievements that still remains unfulfilled, says the Scientific American.
When Lord Niorthcliffe made his
announcement, sober-minded engineers naturally asked: What are tbe
difficulties in tbe way; Can the
prize be won? If so, how much will it
cost?
As we look back at Wellman's
attempt to cross the Atlantic in a
dirigible, which was admirably designed and which was by far the
best craft of its type built in America up to thai {line, we are inevitably
forced to the conclusion that much
preliminary experimenting must be
done before a heavier-tnin-air machine can be sent out on its venturesome transatlantic journey with
some hope of success. It would be
astonishing indeed if considerably
more than the amount of Lord
Northcliffe's prize were not expended In these preliminary studies. But
even granting that by winning the
prize the successful contestant would
merely recoup himself, he must Inevitably have developed the art so
markedly that his craft will have
commercial possibilities far greater
than those which He in the mere
crossing of the Atlantic. Indeed, the
whole problem of devising a safe
passenger-carrying aeroplane    capa
ble of flying for many hours without a stop will probably be solved.
Compared with that, what is a dash
across the Atlantic at its narrowest
part?
If we were absolutely sure of motors and absolutely sure of the weather for thirty-six hours, a transatlantic flight might even now be
attempted from Newfoundland to
Ireland, But unfortunately we have
no guarantee that a faulty motor
will not compel a descent into a
choppy sea, and unfortunately the
science of meteorology is not so far
advanced that we can predict the
weather with accuracy for even so
short a period as twenty-four hours
in advance.
Because present motors cannot absolutely be relied upon, leads to a
consideration of the problem of
alighting upon a rough sea and ascending from great ocean waves,
which has not yet been solved. But
the remarkable performances of the
hydro-aeroplanes at the recent
jdonaco meeting prove that the solution of the problem may soon be expected. Seven machines ran out of
the harbor into the white-capped
Mediterranean and in the teeth of a
gale. All but one successfully rose
from the surface, flew to Beaulieu,
a point some miles down the coast,
and alighted again upon a rough
sea. What is more, Gaubert's performance in alighting and holding
his own in a gale by means of a
drag, shows what can be done on the
high seas even' in a storm.
To be sure, these machines were
comparatively light, the heaviest
weighing only 2000 pounds. But the
meeting proved conclusively that the
large machine of high power Is not
helpless in heavy seas. In our opinion a flying boat of the Curtlss type
is likely to be even more successful
than the float type which figured at
Monaco. In other words, a boat body
In which much fuel, two powerful
motors, provisions, and at least two
aviators can find room—the very
requisite for a transatlantic flight—
holds out more promise than any
other design.
