MANY MAKING WAY
TO QUEEN CHARLOTTES

NO.  150.
The G. T. P. Steamer Prince Albert Left Last
Night Taxed to Capacity With Passengers-
Vessel Now Goes As Far As Queens-
town on Masset Inlet Which Is
Much Appreciated By Residents-Surveyors Go
to Naden Harbor
The Queen Charlotte Islands are
attracting a vast amount of attention In common with the other parts
of New British Columbia at this
time. The Grand Trunk Pacific
steamer Prince George left last night
for Masset with a very large number of passengers. The steamer, in
fact, was taxed to its fullest extent
In finding sleeping accommodation
for the passengers that were on
their way there. The northern end
of the Islands is now popular, it
would seem, and Masset and the
centres about there are getting a
very large number of settlers and
others who are engaged in the various industries that are being opened up there.
•■* Among those who made the trip
over last night was a party of Provincial Government surveyors, under
Mr. Gillespie, who are going to
Naden Harbor for the purpose of
making surveys of the land that lies
within easy reach of that centre. The
inrush of industries there has had
the effect of bringing into the limelight the rich farm lands that lie
behind that Important port. The
Government haB decided to have a
survey ot that section made in the
-interests of the intending Bettlers.
Then there were others who are
going In to settle upon the land. In
cluded among the passengers were
a party of Icelanders, who are going to engage in the fishing industry
there. Thomas Deasy, the Indian
agent, was also a passenger. He had
been to Skidegate and the southern
part of the Islands, and came by the
Prince Albert on the way home to
Masset. He is most enthusiastic
with regard to the development that
is going on on the Islands and expects to see a very busy summer
there.
E. J. Tlngley, of Queenstown, who
has been south, was a passenger
over last night. He speaks of the
good service that the Grand Trunk
Pacific is now giving them, in having the steamers run on from Mas-
set to Queenstown. This is a convenience that is being very much
appreciated, as it allows the shipping of goods direct to the port without the trouble of transshipping, as
has hitherto been the case. The way
is clear, and the company is making
friends among the residents by this
considerate action on Its part.
The rush for the lands of the Islands is likely to increase rather
than diminish. The resources of the
Islands are great and these are now
to be developed in anticipation of
the building up of a great market
in this city.

Vancouver, May 21.—Rev. G. C.
B. Kinney, the first and only man
to scale Mount Robson, on the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific, spoke
to the Canadian Club here today of
the priceless heritage British Columbia possessed in her mountain scenery.
Rev. Mr. Kinney stated that
British Columbia had one of the
grandest heritagecs that Nature
could bestow in the tremendous area
of mountain ranges that covered the
province from one end to the other.
No country in the world could boast
ot such giant peaks, such rugged
landscapes, such wonderful scenery,
such a variety of vistas of verdure,
ice and rocks. It was a feature that
soon would bo recognized as a great
provincial asset, one that would attract thousands and thousands of
visitors each year. The famous
Alpine country of Europe, he said,
was insignificant compared to what

He had been a member of the
Coleman party which unsuccessfully
attempted to scale the mountain in
1908, and the following year . with
another companion he made the only
successful attempt to reach Mount
Robson's pinnacle. One feature of
the exploration was the discovery of
another giant peak in tho vicinity of
Mount Robson, which had been named Mount Chown, In honor of Rev.
Dr. Chown, general superintendent
of tho Methodist Church In Canada.

AN IMPORTANT RAILWAY
OFFICIAL IS IN THE CITY
There arrived from the south yesterday W. J. McKenna, vice-
president of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. He has
come here on a trip that is more or less of a holiday kind, but the
fact that Prince Rupert was selected as a point to which he would
direct his attention is an evidence that the terminus of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Is attracting more than the usual amount of interest in the outside world. On arrival here he at once went aboard
the private car of General Superintendent Mehand and proceeded
along the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific in order to see what is
being accomplished by the most northern of the continental lines
of communication.
In view of May 24th "Empire Day" falling on a Saturday this year, the City Council has proclaimed Monday, May 26th a
Civic Holiday, to be observed as such in
addition to the Dominion Holiday of May
24th.      ERNEST A. WOODS, City Clerk.

Halifax, May 21.—Prince Albert,
the second son of the King, today
chose a game of tennis in preference
to a reception at Government House,
where he would have been received
in state by the Lieutenant-Governor.
Being just "ordinary" disappoints
the Halifax people, who have showed a disposition in some circles to
lionize the sailor son of the King

A NOTED DATE IN

City-Kincolith PreceptoryW as Instituted By Rt. Eminent Sir Knight
J. J. Miller of Vancouver-
Officers of the Local

HAS GREAT FAITH
JNKLAND OIL
Mr. McKenzie of the B. C. Oil Fields Returned
Yesterday and Left for Masset on His Way
to the West Coast of Graham Island
Where Boring Is Being Conducted By Him--He Expects to
Strike Oil In About
A Month's Time
Mr. McLean, who represents the
B. C. Oilfields Company, which is
operating on Graham Island, returned to Prince Rupert, after an
absence in the south, where he was
engaged in the purchase of additional equipment to continue the borings that he has under way there.
He goes back to the work with the
most unbounding faith as to the oil
prospects there. The drill is down
to a depth of 600 feet now, and inside of a month's time he expects
that the oil will be struck. That is
his sizing up of the situation, and
he has been at work on the proposition for some time. He is himself an
expert in the matter of drilling for
oil, and in operating. He says that
his company, for he is himself deeply interested in the proposition, did
not go at the work blindly. On the
contrary, the company had the fullest information as to the prospects
of oil there, having had experts go
over the ground and pass judgment
before anything was done.
The indications as far as he has
gone are of the very best character.
There is gas present in the borings,
which is a further assurance that
the oil is in place. The formation
is all regular, he says, and there is
little prospect of the oil seeping out
He expects fully to find it in place
there and then he can see for this
whole northern part of the province
a decided boom.
The oil prospects are that the
quality will be of the best. It is a
haraffine base of the very best
quality he expects to find, and this
will make the oil of the highest
value to the producers. The quantity
should be all that could be desired,
and oil should before long be produced in great volume.
Before he left the fields there was
some trouble from water. He went
south for the purpose of getting
some casings In order that this
trouble might he overcome and allow
the drilling to proceed without obstruction. He has secured the necessary equipment and this will he on
the ground in a short time.
Mr. McLean says that according
to his theory there are two fields
of oil there. One of these is located
west of Yakoun Lake. The other is
in the direction of Otard Bay, where
operations are now going on. The
formation is an old one, which
promises a very superior class of
oil. He has in addition to the oil
prospects, interests in the coal prospects on the Island, and he expects
1 to see good paying beds located.

Very Great
Hon. W. T. White,    minister    of
finance, in introducing the budget a
few days ago, said It was again his
lot to extend his congratulations to
the country on account of the    continuance of the prosperous condition
which  previously obtained. To make
the  situation  clear,  it     would    be
necessary    to review    the    finance j
years  1910-11 and  1911-12, on the!
whole  the estimate he had made of!
the probable revenue for the fiscal
year which closed    on    March    31,
1912, was well borne out.
The total revenue exceeded $ 1 :iG.-
000,000, or a little more than $100,-j
000 more than was estimated.    This'
was an increase of more than $18,-[
000,000,    as    compared    with    the i
previous  year.    It   represented   els-
teen and a hall' per cent, (■' thi  I
revenue  for  tho year.   The  Increase
whs pretty evenly    distributed    over
several months,
Expenditure Account.
Turning t" the expenditures ac-1
count, the minister Bald that the
ordinary expenditure for tin- year
1911-12 had amounted to $98,000-
000, an Increase of $10,0(10,001) as
compared with the previous fiscal
year. A portion of this Increase, he
said, was more apparent than real,
being made up of necessary outlays
(Continued  on   Page Two)
Vancouver, May 21.—During the
last fiscal year more tnan a million
dollars worth of fruit was Imported
Into Vancouver alone. A part of this
money will now remain in the country owing to the reduction in the
express rates. This will put the
Okanagan Valley on the same basis
as Wenatchee and Yakima in Washington State as far as Vancouver Is
concerned as to express rates. The
American fruit will be up against a
forty  per cent. duty.
The order of the Railway Commission for a series of reductions in
express rates throughout Ihe West
approximating a general reduction
of about 20 per cent, provided for
the new rales becoming effective on
July 1 6. In view uf the tact that ihe
berries and small fruits of British
Columbia, Which come early in the
season, should Ik- benefited, the rates
opening up new territory in ihe
prairie provinces in which they
could bo marketed to greal advantage, representatives uf tin- British
Columbia fruit growing Interests
urged ihai ihe enforcement of the
order reducing ihe rates should become effective on June 10, Instead
of tho later date, which has been all-need by ihe Hallway Commission.

THE  COST OF  LIVING.
Bradstreet's gives out the interesting intelligence that the cost of
living is steadily though slowly going down. This phenomenon began
to appear in January last. December
was a high-water mark in prices.
Each month since has seen some
slight mitigation, so that the average cost of commodities required
about the house is the lowest since
last July. This cheerful news must
not be exaggerated. The fall since
December is only four per cent,, but
it is something if twenty-four dollars go as far In May as twenty-five
did in December. The decline, as
compared with last May, is 1.8 per
cent., which means that we may
buy for $9.87 an order of goods that
would have cost $10 this time last
year. But this shoulu not blind us to
the fact that the same goods could
have been bought in May, 1911, for
$9.14, in May, 1909, for $9.00, and
in 1908 for $8.60. If we make a
comparison with 1901 we find
breadstuffs advanced in price one-
third, livestock more than one-half,
meat 50 to 75 per cent., butter and
cheese 60 per cent., eggs 30 per
cent. From which it would appear
that the farmer has no cause for
complaint over the rise in prices,
since be gets a large share of it.
THEATRE   SUPERVISION.
The move that has been  made by
the Government of the Province in
the direction of censoring the moving picture films is a move that will
be appreciated by the public.    This
is something    that might well have
been  dealt  with  before.  There was
need of it, and it is to be hoped that
Mr.   Gordon   will   exercise     a   strict
censorship over the pictures. Wisely,
his powers extend  to regulations as
to the equipment of this    class    of
theatres. This is also very necessary.
When  it is taken  into account that
in places like Prince Rupert, where
the buildings are all of wood, many
hundreds   are     crowded     into     the
theatres at night the necessity    for
the utmost care is at once evident.
There are other lines in which  the
theatres might well be brought under the control of    duly    qualified
censors.   It is  to be hoped  that  the
Government will not stop with  the
good work,  already done, but    will
grapple with some    Of    the    other
abuses, that are allowed to creep into
the theatres.
BUDGET SPEECH
IN THE COMMONS
(Continued From Page One)
on railways, which had brought in
some returns and of increase in census, militia and public works votes.
The expenditure, tho minister
pointed  out, has slightly  more  than
doubled in twelve years. By deducting the ordinary expenditure from
the revenue it was found that the
surplus for the year amounted to
$37,946,776,
Coming to the item of expenditure
Mr. White said that amounted in
1911-12 to $98,890,641, or $1,161,-
440 more than estimated. Of this,
$21,000,000 had been spent on the
N.T.R., $10,000,000 on other railways and canals, $800,000 on the
railway subsidies, five millions had
been raid out in connection with the
implementing clauses of the Grand
Trunk Pacific contract, while the
miscellaneous charges amount to approximately one million.
Mr. White remarked that as the
day for heavy construction on the
Grand Trunk Pacific is about over,
the annual outlay under that head
will steadily continue to decline.
The expenditure of other railways
and cognated works had amounted
to $3,800,000, including over $1,-
000,000 on the Quebec bridge. Public works capital expenditure
amounted to over $4,000,000, including $1,100,000 spent on the St.
Lawrence ship canal.
Total Sin-plus 930,103,238.
Mr. White said if, to the ordinary
surplus, of $37,946,776, were added
$1,156,456 on account of the sinking
fund, the total surplus would be
$39,103,232. The reduction on the
national debt of the year was $122,-
591. Mr. White then summarized the
situation as follows:
"We were able out of revenue to
pay all current expenditures an'd
minor public works had provided for
$38,000,000 of capital and special
expenditures and have a surplus of
over $100,000 to apply to the reduction of the national debt."
Turning to the fiscal year which
closed on March 31 of this year, Mr.
White said that it was even more
satisfactory than the previous year.
The revenue of $136,000,000 in
1911-12 would show an increase this
year of more than $32,000,000.. as it
was expected the revenue this year
would total $168,250,000. The increase this year over last year was
of itself equal to the whole revenue
of. the Dominion twenty years ago.
It bad also been a steady increase,
not spasmodic in any way, and,
while chiefly notable for increase in
customs, yet showed notable increases in other sources of revenue
as well.
Running expenses of the Government had, of course, increased considerably, and there had been generous appropriations for public works,
all demanding larger outlay, so that
the ordinary expenditure, which in
1911-12 amounted to $98,161,440,
was expected in the, fiscal year just
closed to amount to $113,350,000.
This would leave a surplus against
capital and expenditures of $55,000,-
000. Capital and special expenditures
would total $33,000,000 and ' expenditures for sinking funds out of
consolidate! funds $1,300,000, making a reduction of $23,300,000 in the
national  debt.
Mr. White laid stress on the fact
that in a time of great financial
stringency throughout the world the
Government had been able to largely
diminish its interest charges and at
the same time enhance the standing
of Canadian securities.
Matured and Maturing Notes.
The fInane 3 minister next dealt
with the matter of matured and maturing loans. He said that on the
first of May, 1912, a loan fell due
which had been made in 1908 totaling £4,681,870, of which £3,563,000
were redeemed in cash and £1,118,-
000 converted into 1930 securities.
Another loan made in December,
1907, matured on the first of October last to the amount of £1,235,-

BUDGET SPEECH
IN THE COMMONS
(Continued from Page Two)
which they would otherwise have
had to "implement." He said that
already been purchased and from
month to month more would be
bought and, if the whole issue of
£14,000,000 came into the market
eventually, the Government would
hold about $35,000,000 of these.
Dealing next with the debt of the
Dominion, Mr. White said that in
1911-12, there was a decrease of
$122,591, which left the total debt
on the 31st of March, 1912, at $339,-
919,000. A further reduction during
the last year of $23,300,000 left the
total on the 31st of March, 1913, at
approximately $316,619,460. This
amount of Indebtedness was not excessive, but exceedingly reasonable
for a country with the extent and resources of Canada. It represented
less than two years' revenue.
The minister pointed out that
there were only two loans maturing
before 1930. The first of these,
totalling £±,700,000, issued in 1878
and maturing on the 1st of October
next, would be paid. A second loan
would mature between 1914 and
1919 and was payable upon three
months' notice by the Government of
the Dominion.
CuniKlian Credit High.
As the outcome of the world-wide
financial conditions during the year
higher rates of interest had been
payable in Canada. The price of the
Dominion's 1930-50 stock had been
slightly depressed, but had, on the
whole, been well maintained. Recent quotations for the Dominion
3 1-2 per cent, stock had been 94
to 96, and the credit of the Dominion, as reflected in the standing of
Jts securities, had been among the
highest in the world throughout the
period of stringency.
Dominion Trade Figures.
Coming to the consideration of
Canadian trade figures, Mr. White
stated that in the fiscal year 1911-
12 the aggregate of Imports and exports had been $874,637,749, or an
increase of some $105,000,000 over
the preceding year. In 1912-1,5 the
total had been more than a thousand
million dollars. In 1908 the imports
of Canada had been $370,000,000,
and the exports $380,000,000, or a
total of $050,000,000. In other
words, imports had equalled 56 per
cent, of the total. In 1911-12 the
imports had been $559,000,000 and
the extorts $315,000,000. The imports therefore in that year were 63
per cent, of the total of $874,000,-
000. Similarly, in 1912-13 the imports were 63 per cent, of the total
of $1,085,000,000, the exports having totalled $393,000,000 and the
imports $691,000,000.
Some argue, Mr. White continued,
that if the imports of the country
continue to increase the condition
must mean the export of gold. Without entering into a detailed examination of this balance of the trade
argument, Mr. White pointed out
that the exports had Increased from
$280,000,000 to 393,000,000 in five
years, and in this period a vast
amount of productive capital had
been poured into Canada for railway
development, for the construction of
great public works and for the conduct of many Important provincial
and municipal and civic undertakings.
The greater portion of this productive capital had come from England and other countries In importations of commodities of various
kinds. Moreover, the constant large
stream of immigration brings into
the country an element which does
not become immediately productive
through adding eventually much to
the prosperity of the country.
The apparent adverse balance of
trade, he contended, was due to
causes connected with tho development of the country and need cause
no anxiety.
On Consolidated Fund.
The expenditure on consolidated
fund as shown by the main estimates for the coming fiscal year was
$145,850,000, and on capital expenditure $53,100,000, a total of
$179,000,000. To this must be added the supplementary estimates
which will shortly be brought down.
They had, in addition, to meet railway subsidies, and must provide for
the purchase.of Grand Trunk Pacific
bonds at the rate of $1,000,000 a
month. There waB also the further
necessity of the large amount to
start construction for the three
Dreadnoughts for Canada. It was a
big programme, but not more than
the revenue and the credit of Canada
warranted.
The expenditure would be close to
$200,000,000, according to the estimates, but they must make allowance    for    a    considerable'    amount

A PASSING ART
AMONG INDIANS
AGENT    THOMAS DEASY HAS    A
GREAT    COLLECTION    O F
STONE-CARVED     TOTEM
POLES.
He Says That the  Knack of Making
Those Ornaments From Slate
Is Now Dying Out
Among Tribes.
The art of carving in black stone
that has been carried on for a long
time among the Ilaidas of the
Queen Charlotte Islands is becoming
a lost one, says Thomas Deasy, the
Indian agent on the Islands. There
are only a few of the old Inditing
on (ho reserves that still follow the
business, and these men are becom
ing very old and the art will soon
pass away, The younger generation
does not settle down to the work.
They will not put in the time that is
necessary to make the carving upon
the stone.
Mr. Deasy has one of the best collections in this line. Among them he
exhibits many totem poles of excellent work and a large tray with an
emblems Me carving of a kind of
mermaid upon it, the form of a
child being combined with a salmon.
There is a legend of the tribe surrounding the carving which bears
some resemblance to the story of
Jonah.
The source whence the stone, used
in the work is derived is near Queen
Charlotte City. There is a deposit
there and the Indians get their supply from that place. The cutting of
the stone into the required shapes
is done for the most part with the
primitive tools that the Indians have
themselves made.
In many of these that Mr. Deasy
has iu his possession use has been
made of the Abalone shells with
their pearl-like appearance and
pieces of bone to ornament the
figures.

BUDGET SPEECH
IN THE COMMONS
(Continued from Page Three.)
which would not be spent. The revenue last year was approximately
$168,000,000. It was too much to expect that the increase of last year
would continue, but he felt confident that the revenue would prove
■equal to meel not only all current
expenditure, but also all capital expenditure for the year.
Mr. White next referred to the
proposed tariff changes. He said it
was not desirable that important
changes should be made late in the
session, as it was only proper to
leave 'lie importing community an
opportunity to make contracts in advance. The tariff, he said, waB marked by many anomalies, but its own
■outstanding principles were that it
should provide by indirect taxation
a revenue sufficient for the requirements of the people, and that it
should be so framed as to build up
industries and contribute generally
to tho prosperity of the people and
the Dominion as a whole.
Prosperity of Country.
Having regard for the prosperity
of the country as shown by the last
trade statistics, Mr. White said that
there was undoubtedly a consensus
of opinion that anything in the nature of a general revision of the
tariff at the present time is not called for, and would be contrary to the
general interests of the country.
Apart from the changes made necessary by the trade agreement entered
into between Canada and the West
Indies, the alterations in the existing
tariff would not be important.
Mr. White then spoke at some
length in explanation of the West
Indies agreement along lines already
familiar to those interested in the
matter. The effort to increase trade
with other colonies,- he said, was a
matter which had received the approval of both sides of the House.
As already announced in connection
with the consideration of that agreement, Mr. White said that a duty
would be imposed on raw cocoa
beans, juice and fresh limes when
imported from foreign countries, but
they would be admitted free from
the West Indies. Then there would
be alterations in the duty on sugar,
and the privilege which the refiners
possessed of importing foreign sugar
at a twenty per cent, advantage under certain conditions would be abrogated in order to give the West Indies the full benefit of the preference.
Change hi Sugar Duties.
The change in the sugar duties
would involve a considerable loss of
revenue, but he expected that the
public would reap the advantage by
paying slightly lower prices as a result of the reduced tariff. At the
present time on raw sugar the duty
is fifty-two and a half cents per hundredweight under the British preference and eighty-two and a half cents
under the general tariff. On refined
sugar the duty is 83 cents per hundred under the preference and $124
under the general tariff. Under the
new tariff the preference will be increased.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier asked if this
would mean that the British preference on sugar would disappear.
Mr, jWUite, said this was required
by the expressed terms of the West
Indies agreement. They wanted an
exclusive preferential market for
sugar in Canada.
The minister then proceeded to
detail other tariff changes. The first
of these was on cement. He pointed
out that last year there had been a
temporary reduction of one-half of
the duty on cement, but this had
been to meet a situation which
was largely due to lack of transportation facilities. This year better
transportation facilities are available
to the cement companies, and he had
definite assurance that there would
not be a recurrence of last year's
conditions.
Reducing Cement Rate.
Mr. White said he would like to
see Canadian cement plants able to
provide all that was needed in the
country. The Government made an
investigation and had come to a conclusion that reasonable reduction
might be made.
The present general tariff on cement is 12 1-2 cents a hundred
pounds, or 43 3-4 cents a barrel of
350 pounds. In view of the fact that
the cost of production had been lessened during the past few years, and
because It was believed that no injury would be done by a reduction,
it  had   been  decided  to reduce  the

Prince Rupert's
Industrial Annex
This industrial addition to Prince Rupert comes now nt a time
when opportunity is greatest. Prince Rupert and the entire great
Northern British Columbia country are on the eve of a tremendous
movement. Values will go up remarkably during the present year
and the years immediately following. Port Edward prices are low
now.   This is the time to buy.

general rate on the cement from 12
1-2 to 10 cents a hundred weight, or
from 43 3-4 cents to 35 cents a barrel.
The British preferential rate is
lowered from eight to seven cents
and the intermediate from 11 to 10
cents a hundred weight. Mr. White
said he understood that there was to
be a large cement plant established
in the West this year, and he hoped
it would be one of many.
Type Machinery.
The next item changed was typesetting and typecasting machinery,
upon which the general tariff is now
20 per cent., the intermediate 17 1-2
and the preferential 12 1-2. This
class of machinery will be free in
future.
Mr. White said he was convinced
tiiat newspaper proprietors did not
make an undue profit upon their
capital and enterprise and he believed that it was well that the press
should find its way into the homes
of Canada at as low a rate as possible. This reduction would tend to
decrease the cost of production.
Traction ditching machinery costing not more than $3000 also goes
on the free list. Mr. White said that
there was hardly a rural representative who had not drawn his attention to this matter and.he realized
fully the immense value of this class
of machinery in draining agricultural land. There had also come representations to him from the minister
of agriculture. The present tariff on
this class of machinery is 27 1-2 per
cent.
Other items which go on the free
list are miners' rescuers' appliances
glass ware and scientific apparatus
for use in hospitals, also apparatus
of sterilizing, but not including
laundry machinery when imported
on good faith for the exclusive use of
hospitals.
Mr. White then enumerated In detail the sugar changes. He said that
the beet sugar men had the privilege
of importing raw sugar to the
amount equal to that of their own
production until December 31, 1914,
but it was understood by them that
this was not to be renewed.
Will Benefit Consumer.
He said the loss of revenue by the
sugar changes would be $600,000 a
year and he thought the benefit of
this would go to the consumer. He
said that what he aimed to do in
connection with the sugar schedule
was to leave it in the same position
as in the West Indies agreement.
Hon. Frank Oliver asked for the
difference in the rate of duty on refined sugar as proposed by Mr.
White and Mr. White stated that the
rate under the old duty was 83 cents
preferential a hundred pounds and
$1.24 general. The new rate would
be 80 cents preferential and $1.07
2-3 general.
Mr. W. F. McLean enquired if the
American tariff disturbances which
were likely to take place in the United States would involve any changes
in our finance policy.
Mr. White replied that he would
prefer to wait and see what the Americans did before making any announcement.
Mr. White also announced a reduction on the duty of certain yarns
which were used as raw materlarby
a number of Canadian manufacturers. Formerly there was considerable confusion In regard to the classification of these yarns. The customs department had made a ruling
placing the duty at ten, twelve and
a half and fifteen per cent. As this
yarn was really used as a raw material, it had been decided to reduce
the rates to seven and a half, ten
and twelve.
Mr. White then took up the question of the lead bounties which ran
out June 30 this year.
In 1900 a lead bounty of 75 cents
a hundred pounds was arranged for
fivo years providing for an expenditure of $5,000,000. In 1908 of this
amount $1,700,000 was unexpended.
Mr. Fielding extended the bounty
until June 30, 1913. The London
price of £14 10s was to control the
payment of the bounty. When the
price ran over the amount no bounty
wns granted. On July 1 of this year
there will be still $600,000 unexpended and It is proposed to extend
the bounty for five years to include
this amount.
Price in London Market
When the price of lead In the London market exceeds £17 18s 9d per
ton, no bounty will be paid. Mr.
White said that in a few years under these bounties the production of
lead In Canada had Increased from
7,000,000 to 35,000,000 pounds.
