DRESS  LAST NIGHT.
The  Horticultural Society   Is    Most
Flourishing One As Was Proved
Last Night.
There was a well attended meeting
of the Prince Rupert Horticultural
Society last evening in the City Hall.
About half of those present were
ladies, who seem to be fully as deeply Interested in the work as are the
gentlemen of the city. A. H. Tomlinson, the provincial horticulturist,
gave a very interesting address.
The meeting was presided over by
M. M. Stephens in the absence of
Rev. Mr. Rix, the president of the
Society. Mr. Stephens explained that
the principal speaker would be A. H.
Tomlinson, although D. McD. Hunter
would arrive about 9 o'clock and
also deliver an address. He regretted
the absence of Mr. ..ix from the
meeting.
Mr. Tomlinson hoped that during
the history of the Society there
would be many addresses from people of the district who should know
local conditions.
Muskeg, he explained, was imperfectly decayed vegetable matter,
somewhat akin to peat, which had
not been subjected to the pressure
necessary to make peat. Muskeg required treatment. The first thing required was drainage. These drains
should be at least 2 feet deep and
about a foot or a foot and a half in
width. A stone drain might be used
and over the stones clinkers or
brush could be spread. There should
be a foot of soil over the drain.
In Sitka they used slabs. He described this system. The use of wood
or slabs where the bottom of the
drain was muskeg was very preferable to tiles.
Open drains were used in some
parts where land was- not regarded
as valuable and Intensive farming
was not to be followed.
Touching on the use of lime, he
advocated caustic lime or builders'
lime rather than agricultural lime.
The latter was too slow in its action. To use the lime it should be
slaked and used immediately. It was
the intention to use lime on Graham
Island Quarantine Station. The residue from an acetylene gas plant
could be used to advantage. Shells
could be used also to advantage.
The lime could be used iu the fall
and fertilizer In the spring.
In answer to a question of Mrs.
Mcintosh, .Mr. Tomlinson said there
was no danger of planting Immediately after using  the  lime.

TO INVESTIGATE
THE MURDERS
O Ottawa, Feb. 24.—After a long
discussion in the railway committee
of the House of Commons, action has
been taken which will prevent the
Canadian Northern Railway from
further increasing its capital stock
without the consent of Parliament.
The present capital of the Canadian
Northern Railway proper and the
amalgamated companies is $77,000,-
000. At this point it wil1 remain unless Parliament or some other authorized body grants leave to the
company to make an increase.
The matter came up m committtee
on W. H. Sharpe's bill to extend the
time for the construction of the Canadian Northern to points in the
West.
R. B. Bennett, of Calgary, expressed the opinion that action should be
taken in regard to the blanket charters held by railways in the West.
Replying to questions of Hon.
Frank Cochrane, minister of railways, the solicitor for the Canadian
Northern Railway said his company
did not intend to build these lines
at once.
"Then why do you ask for renewals of these charters if you are
not going to build at once?" queried
Hon. Mr. Cochrane.
"It is easier to get. a renewal than
a new charter," Mr. Pruel replied.
R. B, Bennett declared there was
too much water in the Canadian
Northern Railway stock. There
should be parliamentary legislation
to prevent any further liquidation.
He pointed out that the capital stock
of the Canadian Northern Railway
was ten thousand dollars a mile more
than   the  Canadian  Pacific  Railway.
On motion of Mr. Bennett the time
for the commencement of the construction of the lines proposed was
reduced from two to one year and
the time for completion to three
years. Mr, Bennett then moved that
the capital stock of the Canadian
Northern Railway should not be increased beyond seventy-seven millions,  which carried.
Sir William Mackenzie has issued
a statement concerning the Canadian Northern Railway system and
its relation to the public assistance
it has received. The statement
commences dealing with the charges
that the Canadian Northern system
has been subsidized in excess of its
legitimate requirements, and that
the money voted by Parliament has
been diverted to Messrs. Mackenzie
Mann & Company's private purposes.
He offers an explanation, stating that
he gives official figures frankly. He
makes a general statement that there
have been placed on the statute
books of Canada many millions in
cash subsidies and that the Canadian
Northern Railway lias earned millions of dollars on bond guarantees
which never progressed any furtheh
than the original authorizing legislation. He emphatically denies that
any money ever found its way Into
the private enterprises of Mackenzie
&  Mann. j^H

London, Feb. 24.—Britain has invoked the good offices of the United

Villa with its investigation into the
case of VV. S. Benton, who has been

A Noted  Stations.
-Yesterday there was a drawing for
the six stations in connection with
the hydro-electric trenching. There
were twelve gangs and only six stations. The lucky drawers were as follows: Station 1, Errick Carlson;
station 2, .1. I.indquist; station S,
M. Couture; station 4, Falconer

Suffragettes Not Impressed
W:th President Wilsons Attitude
Fined for Gambling,
Yesterday the cases of gambling
connected with the Two Star Hotel
were continued, Magistrate uarss
was convinced that there had 'been
a violation of the Act technically inasmuch as they played for tne drinks
according to their admission. Twelve
were fined, eleven of these $5.00
each, and one, the keeper of the
house, $20.00.
- ■      '
The above photograph shows a number of the band of women who
journeyed to Washington to enlist President Wilson's Influence in behalf
of their cause. The suffragettes were very indignant when only a few
were admitted to an audience with the President. They expressed their
feelings in such a pronounced manner that the President ordered that all
of the women be admitted. After hearing their presentation Wilson gave
the women very slim encouragement, and based his failure to do so on
the ground that he could not speak for his party until the party had
taken a position in the matter. Mis. Glendower Evans, of Boston, who
led the delegation said: "I thought from what you said at Seagate when
you were a candidate for president that you were in favor of our cause,
but you were gunning for votes then." So chilled were some of these women by the President's frigid reception that when departing many passing him in single file refused to take his proffered hand.

He Has Secured Appropriations of
$20,000 For Starting Grading On
Drill Hall Site And $27,000 On
Trestles And Road Ways at Quarantine   Station   on   Digby   Island
H. S. Clements, M.P., the member
for this district in the House of
Commons at Ottawa, has been busily
employing his time at the Dominion
capita] in securing advantages for
Prince Rupert. He has secured from
the Government at Oitawa an assurance of work starting on the excavation for the drill hall and for the
putting in of roadways and necessary
Irestles at the Quarantine Station
at  Digby  Island.
Mr. Clements, realizing that there
was need of work being started here,
has used every endeavor to have the
work done without delay. Accordingly     he  has arranged   that     $20,000
should be used iu excavating for tin-
drill hall and $27,000 for the roads
at the Quarantine Station. This work
will be done by day labor, so that
those resident in the city will be
given the opportunity    of benefiting
I by the work.
The work In connection with the
drill hall was not made possible until the title tn the site was obtained
by the    Government.    These    deeds

Graves End, Eng., Feb. 24.—NlneO
of the ten labor leaders deported
from South Africa on board the
Ungeni, which reached here today,
declared their intention of refusing
to leave the vessel when it arrived
here today. They said they would
remain on board till the steamer returned.
Mr. Bain, the general secretary of
the Trades Federation of South
Africa, who is one of them, said:
"We were pressed on board against
our consent. We don't intend to
leave till we land again in South
Africa."
Arthur Henderson, labor member
of Parliament, after a conference
with the men aboard the vessel persuaded the South Africans to change
their minds. Mr. Bain gave Mr. Henderson statements as to the events
leading up to the deportation. He
declared that hundreds of people
were arrested during the strike for
no crime whatever.
The leaders of the movement, he
asserted, surrendered iu order to
avoid bloodshed when the military
officers threatened to attack them in
the Trades Hail at Johannesburg.
POWER TO TAKE

PETROLEUM.
If
Necessity  Arises at  Any   Time to
So Act Government May Do
So.
In the House of Commons a few
days ago Hon. J, D. Reid introduced
a motion to amend the Export Act,
cap. 50, of the Revised Statutes of
1901), so as to g/e the Governor-
in-Council power to prohibit the exportation of crude or partly manufactured petroleum, obtained or
taken on any land belonging to Hh
Majesty, in the right of Canada, situated in the Provinces of Manitoba,
Alberta, Saskatchewan and British
Columbia in the Northwest Territories or the Yukon Territory.
Mr.   Borden   explained     that   this

he does not represent, and represent
well, in this respect Prince Rupert
In common with the oilier parts owes
lo Mr. Clements a debt of gratitude
for his services. In season and out of
season he is fighting to get what lie
believes belongs to the city.
As a result of his most recent
move on behalf of the city he has
secured for the workingmen of the
city prompt action on the preparations for the drill hall and for exca-1 to make room for the railway. They
Ponthierville, 77 miles, is all-rail,
as the river could not be used on
account of the falls.
Ponthierville to Kindu, 196 miles,
will be by steamer on the Congo
River.
Kindu to C'ongolo, 217 miles, iit
the Belgian Congo, will be all-rail,
along the west side of the Congo
River.
Congolo to Bu Kama, 398 miles
on the Congo River, will be by
steamer.
From Bu Kama to Capetown the
rails are laid and trains are running
between Elizabethville and Capetown, 2,.'121 miles. The distance from
Elizabethville to Bu Kama is :ili
miles. The line crosses the Zambesi
River jus: below Victoria Falls and
passes through Broken Hill, liiila-
wayo and Kimberley.
The Belgian G-overnmenl has
to Great Britain a sii-ip of land In
the Congo In order that the railway
may traverse British territory
through   ihe  entire  route.
Just soutli uf Broken Hill, in
Rhodesia, tlie railroad crosses tlie
Kafue River on a bridge 1,900 feet
long at a point where crocodiles eat
some of ihe cattle that ford Hie
stream  there in  droves.
"Elephants," says II. .1. Shep-
stone in The Graphic, "have torn
up the rails, pulled down the telegraph wires and upset the telegraph
posts. The engineers frequently have
come along to find all the workmen

shelter from wild beasts. When the
iron road reached the i.ongo it entered a region where the white ant
abounds, and also an area where
sleeping sicgness is rife. Hundreds
of the ant  hills had to be removed
valions at the Quarantine Station.
This will run into nearly $50,000,
which is to be done by day labor under the local engineer. The result
will be that local workers will be

The question of peat and its origin which had been touched upon
by Aid. Montgomery in Questions
during the speech of .Mr. Tomlinson
was again raised by Andrew Stewart,
who said he was after information.
Mr. Tomlinson then proceeded to
explain the whole subject of peat.
He told of his experience in Devonshire, where, with bis father, he engaged in the nursery business. Peat
was imported by tlieni for use in
growing rhododendrons, ferns anil
some other plants. The orchids wore
grown on peat imported for the purpose.
Mr. Stewart felt that with draining and the use of lime good results
could lie obtained here.
Aid. Montgomery told how he had
seen peat lands treated in the Old
Land.
The chairman gave his experience
in treating his lawn, lie had used
abundance of stable manure and
lime. He had also put In coal ashes,

lie sought for advice. jilm formation of the Society    there
The nitrogenous matter in muskeg was not available. By using lime
this was gol. Later fertilizer could
be used.

Iu reply to a question of Mr, Col-

an) event, This should be used to

yard.     Even   two  tons   to   the  acre
Wood ashes, where obtainable,
were valuable. This supplied the
potash lo the soil. It also supplied
other substances and gave draiuage.
He did not advise using coal ashes
io loo great an extent. Spread about
three Inches over the soil in the fall
this worked  well.
Sand mlx"d with muskeg was very
advisable to use. There was a certain
amount of plant food in il and it
gave drainage. Gravel and ground
rock was also useful. Clay, if mixed
lo a limited extent with the muskeg,
was'Valuable. It was better to use a|
little each year. Lime working with
sand, clay, ashes, etc., produced bac-l
lel'ial ml ion.
Barnyard   manure,  wherever   pro-|
curable,  was to be  obtained.  When
mixed with muskeg it gave a fairly!
good soil. He did not object to fertilizers,  but care should  be  taken in

referred to the fact, that muskeg and
clay had been stored next to the
Dominion Government work. Anyone
wanting it could have it for the hauling. The wagons would be loaded for
anyone using It. Tho secretary was
alsu iu communication with a Beeds-
mati in Vancouver looking to getting
seeds and bulbs much below th
regular cost. The city council had
been asked lo secure a stttnip puller
tn be leased out in clearing lots.
Free water for lawn.- was also asked
for; He believed that they would gel
the free water and he also had hopes

Iu connection with the Quarantine
Station, where the doctor's residence
has just been completed, considerable has to be done In getting the
roads from the wharves lo the
buildings where the necessary fumigation will be done when passengers
are landed from eastern ports. Mr,
Clements has been pressing this
very strongly in order that when the
Grand Trunk Pacific Hue is completed and trade by the Pacific direct from foreign ports is established
here the station may be ready tor
service. There is some trestle work
required and excavations to enable
the buildings to be erected and the
roadways put in. The sum of $27,-
000 has been alloted for this.
Mr. Clements has secured these
sums in a year when the Government is restricting the appropriations to the barest needs. All the
more credit is therefore due to him.

Even his political opponents agree

have secured for this city wonderful
results, and the benefits of these
latest, appropriations will be felt very
quickly.

The Administration Alaska Railroad Bill, authorizing the President
of the United States to construct a
$35,000,000 railroad from Alaska's
coast to its great coal fields, was
passed by ihe House by a vote of
230   to   87.
A similar measure lias passed the
Senate and the bills will be taken
up at once in conference between
the two houses, with a view to sending the measure to the President,
who has signified his intention ot
signing it.
At the eleventh hour, after a sharp
parliamentary skirmish, the House
eliminated from the bill as reported
by the territories committee, a pro-
i ision authorizing a bond issue of
$35,000,000  lo  finance  the  railroad

when the department was confident
of the good faith of the applicants,
shown by the deposit of a large sum
of money. Mere" speculation would
stop, for it could do no good to anybody. He referred to an expenditure
by the city of .Moose Jaw of $35,000
which was found afterwards to be on
lands over which oil rights were
plastered. He also referred to the
bad effects which came from the way
in which three sections could be tied
up by the payment' of a $5 fee.

Hon. Dr. Roche said that apparently the member for Moose Jaw was
not aware that Ihe reguations had
been changed. It had been provided
that in addition to the paying of
the $5, the applicant must In addition deposit the first year's rental.
He thought that this would eliminate a good deal of tiie speculation.
The resolution was then adopted
and the bill based thereon introduced and read a l'irsi time. The bill

Government to enaci such legislation Is based upon the request made
by the Admiralty to be given access

of the government laud sales In
Alaska. The Senate bill provided for
a $40,000,000 bond issue. Representative Fitzgerald of N'ew York
led a fight which resulted in striking
out the bond provision.
Under the amended measure the
project would be financed out of the
currency funds in the treasury, the
President being limited to $35,000,-
000 and $1,000,000 being appropriated for immediate expenses. Congress
would appropriate each year the
amount, estimated lo be necessary for
the construction of the road.
The bill provides for the construction of a road "not to exceed 1000
miles, to be so located as to connect
