There is every evidence that as a
result of the concessions which are
now assured here, through F. H,
Cunningham and D. N. Mclntyre representing the Dominion aud thePro-
v incial Governments the herring industry is to become another most important branch of the li :al lishing.
At tr.e meeting held last eve lug in
tt'c city hall, these officials announced that they would seek permission
to have herring licenses give tlie
privilege of fishing throughout Distrlcl No. 2, which is all that ivat
asked for by the local interests. As
a temporary relief they will tele-
gruph today with good reasons for
believing it will be granted to have
the licenses this season cover an extended area agreeable to those engaged In the Industry.
The meeting with these officials is
likely to be followed by much good.

The meeting will be continued    this
evening In the city hall,
G. XV. Nlckerson was elected chairman. In opening he outlined the
objects of the meeting. The committee that had had the matter in hand,
had prepared what thev thought were
their rights in the nortli. He said thai
It was felt that the resources in- a
fishing line should be in the hands
of those who resided in this part or
the province, instead of being in the
hands of those who came in the
spring and  left in thc fall.
Mr. Cunningham explained the personnel of the Fisheries Advisory
Hoard. The Board having discussed
matters makes its recommendations
io the Minister.' The Advisory TJoard
had ils (roubles just as those present had. The objects in view was
to do the best possisble for the fishing industry, in line with the conser-
valion of the fish.
He wished to hear from those present in the matter of a roving licence.
Herring Regulations.
Wm. Selig wanted the privilge to
go outside the harbor and get herring. The United Stales fishermen
went away from here to get herring
bail. In Alaska they could keep the
herring in pound. The fish were not
hurt. Whoever wanted to go at il
should be allowed to do It.
Mr. Sorenson wanted tlie licences
to lie good for every port.
Another speaker could not sec why
any license should be necessary. Why
not let a man go out and get herring
just as a boat did for halibut.. He
said that he understood that a man
wlio was not a fisherman might get
a license and sub-lci ii to another.
Mr. Cunningham said (hal If thai
wen- done the license would be cancelled,
Mr. Cunningham explained that the
Government had had under consideration the extending of these rights.
Granted Request,
He   said    that   Mr.    Mclntyre   and
himself were prepared to recommend
to the Advisory Hoard the granting
of a license to cover the whole of
District. 2. It was known thai Governments moved very slowly. Representations had been made by Mr,
Merryfioid, through Mr. Clements,
looking for this extension'. In order
to meet Ihe sll nation for the present
they would recommend, by message,
the granting of ;■ somewhat extended area.
Ho was afraid thai the Government
would be a Hide slow to reduce the
license from $75, as the present, to
$10, as asked for. The department
was expending $3fin,ofl(i in British
Columbia With a revenue of only
about $411,000.

JUDGMENT OF SUPREME
COURT JUDGE ON FORECLOSURE
A   .Mallei-   Affecting   Procedure   Decided  Ity Mr. Justice
MacDonald.
Mr. Justice MacDonald, of the Supreme Court of British Columbia,
who is here on circuit talkng the Assizes, has handed his- judgment to
the rigistrar in the matter of the
Land Rigistry Act, In re Lomls vs
Abbott. The case is one which has
little local interest on its merits, but
in connection with it arose a point
as to procedure under the rules as
affecting County Court judges.
The rules of court give County
Court judges powers, which go with
tii" office of Supreme Court judges,
in many matters. In the present
case it would appear from the judgment of His Lordship, that while a
Supreme Court judge could grant an
order in chambers, tlie County Court
judge while clothed with the authority to act as a local judge of the
Supreme Court, can not make the
order in chambers.
All of this may be absolutely correct in law and His Lordship's judgment faultless, but to the lay mind
it indicates that there are fearful
and wonderful things in law.
In concluding a very lengthy judgment on the matter, Mr. Justice Mac-
Donald says:
"I am therefore of the opinion that
ail judgments given under order 2,7
r 11 (Marg. r 304) rlquire to be
made 'in court'. While the presiding
judge in chambers may for convenience deal with motions under this
Rule, lie al the time acts as judge
in court and not in chambers. The result is that a local judge of the Supreme Court has no jurisdiction
tinder tliis rule, and tho judgment of
foreclosure in question is of no effect. I have no doubt, as to my conclusion being correct, but us the matter is one of great Importance 1
naturally feel a desire that it should
be considered by the Court of Appeal.    There will bo no costs."

A recommendation was made for

at one season of the year that was
the best bait for halibut.

equc-st was made
abolition of boat rating and the granting of a license lo any white man
who was a Britisli subject or intended  to become  such  and  to  Indians.
Aid. Montgomery explained that
the cannerymen bad the exclusive
control of the fishisng for a long
time. Lately white men had been
g.'ven a place, but he felt that the
j canneries  had  an  exclusive  control.
G. R. Xaden said that an expert
canneryman had told him there was
no justification for boat rating.
C.  C.  Perry  felt  that the Indians
should  receive  independent  licenses.
History Of Rating.
Mr. Cunningham explained that a
commission had gone over the whole
question in the north. As a result
of that commission's finding a boat
rating was decided upon by both the
Dominion and the Provincial Government. In 1913-14 it was decided
to give a certain number of licenses
ti white men. The number of independent licenses had increased
from year to year since that, until
this year 287 independent licenses
were issued out of 9G2. On Rivers
Inlet there were 295 independent
white licenses issued.
It was only in the northern part
of this province that the run of fish
was being kept up. Alaskan and
southern British Columbia waters
were falling off. The more licenses
the more fish would be caught.
Mr. Naden wanted to know if it
would not be possible, provided the
number of licenses were unlimited,
to preserve the industry by extending
tlie close season.
An Economic Question.
would of course be the only remedy.
It then became a question of whether
the   canners  could  ■operate,   with   a
shorter   dose   season   and   also   the
point   arose   .■. tethei   [he   fishermen
could make a   ■ .ing.
Mr.  Mclntyi     said  T'.''
imk'i . ndent   v 6sl   rn ai    was o
misnomer. . He  vould ha e ii  ei
ha' o seen thei e men all In lej i ni - i
but    many   had   uot   the   mom j
buy a boat and a ni  .    Thi     hi d I
go   to   tlit   cannet, men   . ni    set   an
ad ftm ■    a net       I  boat. The
attempt   to" t limlnate   the   Japanese
j fishermen  was  somethini   that   vent
even outs de tl    Fishi , . Dei '•■'
Transition Period.
Mr. Mclntyn ex] lained th I th
iirdustry was passing through, a transition period, li mis only In lati
years thai a resident fishing population was here. With no resident
po; ulation the limit as to men en -
plcyed in lishing was fixed.
Fred Sunk realized it was difficult
to make changes at once. He fell
that the fishing industry should be
in the hands of white fishermen, If
they ever expected a navy they would
have to recruit the sailors from the
men that follower the sea.
Mr.  .Morrow contended that there
were   not   enough   white    fishermen
here   to   carry   on   the  industry,   because the price was not sufficient.
Drag Seines.
Another resolution calling for the
abolition of cannery exclusive seine
licenses for steamers and the granting of drag seine licenses for all
British subjects.
XV. Selig did not believe in the
canners having a lease. Let every one
have the right to go in and catch
the fish and sell to the canneries.
Capt. Rorvik pointed out that as
a buyer he was not able to get salmon enough to supply the eastern
market. If these licenses were given
the buyers would be able to dispose
ol perhaps 100,000 pounds instead of
20,000.
W. Slbbald favored saltery licen-
s«s to take care of a lot of this fish.
A reduction should be made in the
license.
Mr. Cunningham pointed out that
the canneries had been compelled to
use the Indians in many of these—
wherever they were In contact with
Indian  reserves.
Mr. Creelman instanced cases
where canneries did not use streams.
The meeting finally adjourned at
11 o'clock until this evening when
the sitting will be resumed in the
city hall.    '

After the Grand Jury had brought
in true bills against the Japanese,
AI. Shoebotham, of Vancouver, who
appeared for Nagano, said that he was
not prepared to proceed, as he had
not had an opportunity to confer
with his witnesses. He expressed a
wish to have the case stand.over for
the first, of the week. He had understood that the other case would go
on first.
Upon the court finding that Ohara
was not represented by counsel, he
agreed to lay the case over until
-Monday, naming L. XV. Patmore to
act as counsel for Ohara.
Both pleaded not guilty.
Mr. Shoebotham applied to have
the two prisoners, Nagana and Ohara
tried separately. He felt that the
depositions did not show any reason
why they should  be tried  together.
Mr. Fisher opposed that. He set
forth that the depositions showed
there had been a struggle in which
these two men were engaged, and as
a result a man was killed. They were
equally responsible.
Mr. Shoebotham contended that the
position taken by Mr. Fisher was one
that might be put forwerd, where it
was shown that the men were together in an unlawful way plotting
to commit a crime, in which case
both might be held equally guilty.
This was not the case here. Nagano
was on his own ground.
It was decided to try them together.

By persistent experimenting I have now evolved a system of heating two rooms in a residence witli your kitchen range, besides supplying hot water for domestic uses, regardless of the position of
q tlie range boiler. By tlie turning of one valve you turn your stove
into a house heating system. I am now trying to improvise a ther-
mostic automatic valve which will do away with the handling of any
valves.
