G. A. McNICHOLL
BOOSTS THE CITY
IN INTERVIEW GIVEN MONTREAL
PAPER HE TELLS OF THE
PROGRESS   MADE.
The    G.T.P. Official    Tells    of    the
Great Future Prince Rupert
Hus.
The future of Prince Rupert Is apparently the "end all" and "be all"
of G. A. McNlcholl's existence, says
the Montreal Mall. Continuing, that
paper says: Mr. McNlcholl Is the
commissioner of colonization and
Industries for the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway with headquarters at
Prince Rupert, B.C. He Is in town
tor a few days to report to his
chiefs on the progress of the year.
During an interview yesterday with
The Dally Mall representative he
spoke in flowing terms of the future
of Prince Rupert, especially as the
Grand Trunk Pacific are now completing their railroad to that port.
Town Is Growing Fast.
"The centre of the fishing industry
on that coast, the town has grown
considerably during the last four
years, the population increasing
from 2,000 to 6,000. When steel
communication to the east Is an accomplished fact the town will then
be able to support a population of
one hundred thousand," said Mr.
McNlcholl enthusiastically. "The
town does not depend on the fishing
industry, for the mineral resources
of the country around are being developed to a large extent. One factor
in the fishing business will be the
fact that fish will be shipped to the
east to arrive only about eight days
old, not fifteen as at present. Now,
we have to send fish to the east via
Vancouver, whereas when steel is
completed we shall be able to ship
direct. The town owns Its own electric plant, telephone and water
services, each of which, with the exception of the latter, which is not
yet complete, Is self-supporting.
Construction Programme.
"A drydock is being built by the
G.T.P. at a cost of three million
dollars which will accommodate a
ship 600 feet in length; slipways for
a complete shipbuilding and repair
plant are also under way. Excavations are being made for a first-
class hotel to cost two million dollars and an elevator capable of holding ten thousand bushels of grain
will shortly be erected. Prince Rupert, too," continued Mr. McNlcholl,
"will be the controlling factor In the
Canadian Yukon and the Canadian
Alaska trade, as it Is two days nearer
than any other railroad terminus on
the American continent. Not an Inconsiderable Item Is the tourist travel along the Canadian Pacific (toast,
for the Inland waterway running
from Vancouver to Skugwny, Alaska, can hardly be surpassed Iu the
world, from a scenic standpoint.
Work the Vein- Hound.
"On the eastern part of the mountain section steel has reached Prince
George. Eastward the steel Is now
113" miles from Prince Rupert. From
that point to Prince George the
distance is about 127 miles and construction work Is comparatively easy
as tho climate Is so equable as to
[>ermlt of work the whole year
round. Over ten thousand men    are
O Last night was an Important one
in the city in fraternal society circles,
ll marked the golden Jubilee of the
Pythian Knighthood, and the local
lodge, Skeena No, 45, celebrated in
a most filling manner. The members
of all the various fraternal orders
in the city were asked to be present
and many took advantage of the Invitation. At least five hundred gathered in Castle Hall and took part in
the celebration.
The first part of the evening was
given over to a ritualistic service
specially prepared for the occasion
and which was made the form
wherever Knights of Pythias celebrated last night.
Harry Daggett presided as chancellor commander. Throughout the
evening songs were rendered by-
Messrs. Melliar, Evans and Normandy. Mr. Daggett also contributed
a recitation.
In connection with the evening's
exercises some very pretty effects
were produced by the use of colored
lights used in conjunction with the
work of exemplifying the work of
the order.
Following this part of tbe evening's programme refreshments were
served followed by a splendid programme of music and dancing which
was continued for several hours.
 o— ■
Firemen's Bull Tonight.
This evening in St. Andrew's Hall
the firemen of the city will give
their first annual ball. The attendance promises to be large and the
hosts have made splendid preparations for the event. There is a general tendency to patronize the ball
and thus assist    the firemen.
CAPE ST. JAMES
LIGHT GOING

The New MiiliUioiise Is Now in Use
to Assist   Navigators
There.
Shafts of light extending a distance of 24 miles seaward are now
playing over the waters of the Pacific from an isolated spot at the
southern extremity of the Queen
Charlotte Islands, known as Cape St.
James. Hitherto tbe Triangle Light
was first sighted by inward steamers, but In the future the Cape St.
James Light will be the first to be
picked up by navigators crossing the
Pacific, via the Great Circle route
and proceeding to southern ports,
while for vessels passing out from
here southbound through Hecate
Straits the light will be a necessary-
guide.
For the past two weeks Government engineers have been actively
engaged In placing the powerful lantern in position on the concrete
tower, and ll Is understood that all
the necessary adjustments have been

being done to rush the road to an
early completion."
British Seat Went Unionist
London, Feb. 1J.—The bye-election yesterday In the Wycombe
Division of Buckinghamshire resulted as follows: Dupre, Unionist,
9044; Tenman Mosley, Liberal, 6713. The seat has usually been
a Liberal seat. It was won In the general election by over 1200
of a Liberal majority.
Remarkable Photograph Of
Rescue By Breeches Buoy
Just at the time when we were- congratulating ourselves that modern
shipbuilding, wireless and other means of safe-guarding life from sea
disasters, the Monroe was rammed and sank within thirty minutes, thus
defeating all precautionary methods. Now, however, the breeches buoy
has come back into prominence as a life-saver. The unusual picture was
made as a cabin boy of the British steel freighter Queen Louise was being whisked to shore and safety when his ship ran afoul of a shoal a
half mile north of Manasquan, N. J. Because of the heavy sea running
it was impossible to get a life-boat to the big freighter, so the United
States Life Saving Corps resorted to the life-line and breeches buoys,
which was operated without any trouble. The ship was carrying a cargo
of block tin from Cardiff, Wales, to the Standard Oil Company, New
York.

AMERICAN FOR
BRITISH ROAD
London, Feb. 19.—The Times in
au editorial today strikes a grave
note regarding the Irish question.
It says the speeches of Hon. A. J.
Balfour and bir Edward Carson delivered in the city yesterday, and a
letter from Sir Frederick Harrison
warning the Premier that he is heading straight for a collision, must
deepen the growing sense of thoughtful men of the nation that we are
entering upon a crisis without a
parallel in our history since the
days of the long parliament.
They warn us how near we are
drawing to a calamity so unspeakable.    They  also warn us  that the
nation even yet  is  but  beginning  to
think this is possible.
It has become the first duty of all
to realize wnat that' catastrophe
means and how close it is at hand
if something is not done to avert it
at once. The Times warns the public
to fix its thoughts upon the one
issue without being diverted by
minor questions which are arising
and which, important though many
of these may be, sink into insignificance when compared with the
menace which has arisen in our civil
peace. Time, it must be borne In
mind, is the essence of a peaceful
seftlenient, says the editorial. Tha".
'ime Is fast running out.
HIGH COST OF
ARMAMENTS
WHAT THE DIFFERENT NATIONS
HAVE TO VAX  1'Olt NAVIES
AND ARMIES,
Tremendous  Anioiuil     Of     Money   Is
Iking   Expended on Ibis
Work.
it is estimated that    the building
of armaments by    European    firms
represents a daily expenditure oF
f5,000,000. For naval shipbuilding
and armament in Great Britain tne
demand at present is said to indicate
a state of affairs without parallel
in the history of ship construction.
Here are the totals of what the
seven principal European powers are
spending during the present fiscal
year on their armaments, both naval
and military:
Greal  Britain    $36"i,000,O0O
Germany       340.000.00u
Russia    305,000,000
France      280,000,000
Italy       115,000,000
Austria-Hungary    105,000,000
Spain      50,000,000
It will be noted that  Great  Brit
ain's expenditure on armaments Is at
tne rate of 11,000,000 tor each day
of the year. For each second of the
day throughout the twelve months
the British taxpayers have to find
a sum of $12.50, In-order that they
may Insure the Empire remaining
at peace. This burden will be increased during 1014-15, for the expenditure on the navy is to be upwards ol' $260,000,000.
At" presenl  practically every firm
iu the world that manuactures armaments is enjoying a record boom  In
trade.    At the same  time profound
peace prevails among    the    powers.
The moral appears to he thai    nations are benefitting    From  the experience oF recent wars. The struggle
In South Africa found Great Britain
unprepared,   so    that    before    she
i achieved  victory,  much  money    had
lo be expended and many lives were
lost.     The  war     In   the     Far     Ens'
caught Russia napping, with the r< -
i suit that she suffered a humiliating
defeat,  her army  being    weakened.

INDIGNATION  FELT   IN   LONDON
OVER NAMING   OF   NEW
GENERAL MANAGER.
First Occasion on Which Old Counts*;
lload Has Conic to
America.
The press and public in London
are much exercised over the appointment of Henry Thornton, general
superintendent of the Long island
Railroad, as general manager of the
Great Eastern Railroad Co. Never before has a British railroad gone
abroad to find a general manager,
and the announcement of Lord Claud
Hamilton, chairman of tbe Great
Eastern, of his inability to find
capable Englishmen for the position
has caused intense chagrin and a
deal of criticism in the railway
world. This, however, is not directed
against Mr. Thornton as an American, but against the English system,
which. It is charged, fails to encourage home talent and Initiative.
The Daily Mail In an editorial de-
dares that the speech of Lord Claud
| Hamilton in announcing the appointment of Mr. Thorton is a BeHoua
indictment against the Great Eastern system. Tho moral Is, the HaHy
Mail says, not that  Englishmen are,
i incapable,    but   that    some    British
i railroad boards need to mend their
ways.
The Dally Express attributes the
deficiency of talented railway    men
: to British snobbery, which n says,
holds business and trade ill CO i ■

RAISING   FALSI:   ISSUES,
The Liberal organ persists in attempting to convey the Impression
that the McBride Government in the
granting of water rights to an applicant who conforms with the regulations was passing something mil to
a parly favorite. No such practice
prevails. The Government, as a matter of fact, does not deal directly
witii these matters unless complications arise. The law being conformed
with by a Liberal or a Conservative
gives under the administration or ihe
Conservative Govern men I In British
Columbia the rights thai arc so
specified in the law irrespective of
whether it is a Liberal or a Conservative that makes application.
The Province of British lolumbln
is of vast extent and is a country
that is in many respects difficult lo
develop in all its lines. The policy
•of Hie Government oF the day has
not been, as far as we have been
sible to judge, one of holding hack-
all development until it can be done
by the province or by municipalities.
On the contrary, while a certain
amount of development is possible
by the province and by cities, there
remains a vast work to do and
which il has been the tendency of
the Government lo encourage capitalists to grapple with, thus bringing
capital Into the Province and assist-j
ing to build up communities that t
might otherwise have to wait a long i
time For ihis development If outside
capital was nol enlisted in the cause.!
The Journal, moreover, did nol at-
templ us represented, to pul the responsibility upon the Liberals in the
House at the time the Tsimpsean
Ad oF Incorporation was passed For
the passing of thai Act. The Liberals, however, who sin in the House
had the same opportunity n> study
the situation as had (he Government
parly. A Liberal represented 'his
districl in the time and did not raise
his voice. Another Liberal, now u
resident of Prince Rupert, sal in the
House tun! did nol raise bis voice.
These im n had the Bame rlghl as any
•other member of the legislature to
make their Influence rell in opposing thi   measure.

"Tbe Wanderer" in the Montreal
Mail has the Following concerning
the Minister of Marine:
"Hon. .1. D, Hazen, Minister oF
.Marine and Fisheries, In 1911, on
the day when he was sworn In as
member of the Borden cabinet. I
watched Mr. Hazen through his First
session as a Federal minister of the
Crown, also, and gained some impressions of liini as a parliamentarian.
"Mr. Hazen, in the House of Commons, is the great rival of Hon. Win.
Pugsley. They both represent St.
John, New Brunswick, which is also
the stamping ground oF both. There
they met in former times as rival
! leaders of the provincial parlies, and
today, when they get going in the
House al Ottawa, each one bus
something to say to the oilier drawn
I From old experiences.
"Mr. Hazen has a model parliamentary manner, His voice is well
modulated, and musical, pfeaslng lo
the ear, although it seems at times
to he pitched rather too high. In his
ministerial duties in the House, Mr.
Ilnzcn avoids with rare delicacy
subjects calculated to arouse partisan Feeling on the part of opponents,
except when he is pounding Pugsley.
No minister In the present cabinet
can get more out ol" the opposition
than he can as a result. His habitual altitude is that of a minister of
both parties, and to hear him talk,
very oFten. one would almost Imagine that he didn't know the difference between a Liberal and a Conservative.

certain thai the Dominion of Canada will play a most creditable pari
in the celebration.
The Final plans For the Caiiailinu
pavilion, which is to be one oF the
handsomest among the buildings rep-
resenlative oF Foreign nations and
slates, were accepted January 21,
and the pro.-ess of actual construction will have begun before the publication of this article, under tha
supervision• of Col. William Hutchison, of Ottawa, the Canadian exhibition commissioner.
Col. Hutchison arrived In San
Francisco some days ago to Inaugurate tin' work upon the building,
preparatory to the arrival of the
Canadian exhibit, which is now on
the way here. He was joined bore
by George Freeman, the London
architect who Is the designer oF the
building, and his staff.
The pavilion, which will cost approximately $300,000, will be the
largest exposition building ever
erected by the Canadian Government, It will be 340 feet long, 240
feet wide and 50 feet high. The
whole sum expended upon the building and its contents will iiniount to
$1100,000 or more.
A portion of the products that
will form the display were shipped
several weeks ago From Ghent,
where they were exhibited at the
recent exposition in tlini city, a portion coming by ship by Hie way of
Cape Horn, and the remainder by
the Isthmus of Panama, Further exhibits, however, will be added of articles, products and.animals, shipped to San Francisco direct from
the Canadian provinces.
The pavilion and these exhibits
me by the Dominion Government
and it is probable ll..it i lere will be
additional Independenl exhibits ar-l
ranged by many ir uol all of the
several  provinces.
While tlic exhibit will cover all
agricultural, manufacturing,' and
educational interests, greal emphasis is being laid upon the Importance ofi the Canadian liv,- slock
exhibit. Recently Charles It. Mi chell,

CANADA AND
PANHANDLE
DR.   THOMPSON,    MEMBER    FOR
YUKON, WILL BliING UP
ALASKA    QUESTION.
Interesting     Question   Is     Likely   to
Come Up This Session m !
House.
The British Columbia and far
western members intend to draw
the attention of Parliament and
the Government some time this session to the question of Canada opening negotiations for the turning over
of the Alaskan panhandle, now owned by the United Slates, to the Dominion. The question will likely lie
brought up by Dr. Thompson, member for the Yukon, and he will be
supported by the British Columbia
members, and also by the Alberta
representatives, who are to a lesser
degree Interested.
The Alaskan panhandle consists ot
Islands of the Alexander Archipelago
and u strip of coast on the mainland
running south from Alaska proper as
far as the fifty-fourth degree. It consists of a fringe along the British
Columbia coasl uo less than .".::c
miles long and from eight to thirty-
five mill's wide, shutting off I lie Yukon territory, the northern half ol
British Columbia and Ihe entire
Mackenzie Basin fr.nn free access to
Hie Pacific Const. It sinus off Northern British Columbia and also Northern Alberta Irom free access to the
-ca  and  a-  thai   northern    n try
develops promises to be a serious
menace lo its prosperity,
The history ot the panhandle is Interesting! Alaska originally belonged
to Russia. The traders of the grcn,t
Russian-American Trading Company,
coming across the Northern Pacific,
followed the line of easiest communication and planted their stations
along the coast while the Hudson's
Bay Company, coining from the east,
had spread Its network of posls
from the Interior westward. When
the two companies came into collision tho two governments found it
necessary lo define their respective
spheres, and this they naturally did
. In accordance witht existing Inter-
ests, Tiie ccast, with the Russian
stations, was given  to Russia;     the
interior with the Hudson's Bay Company's stations io the British company. When the Pnited States purchased Alaska it secured also the
panhandle.
The Brltsh Columbia members will
propose that the Canadian Government take Hie matter up with the
United States and the Imperial governments Willi a view to making
some exchange of territory. British
Honduras and British Guiana, both
being suggested. The question has
already been broached in the American Congress by Hon, Frank O.
Smith, of Maryland.

Pacific; (.rent    F.astei-n     Competition
Results ill Indian Title for Site
Now  Known us Newport.
"Sqitanilsh" will be the new name
of the terminus of the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway Company, if approved by the Geographic Board of Canada. As a result of the desire of the
railway company to change the name
of Ihe place at the head of Howe
Sound now known as Newport a competition was held among the school
children of the province, a prize of
$."><nl being offered to the one who
should select a name that would be
accepted by the company. A lisl of
over 38,000 names was sent In by
2226 competitors and submitted to
Mr, W, F. Robertson, who. in collaboration with Mr, 0. (i. Alt ken,
Hi' provincial geographer, made a
selection of twelve, which were in
turn cabled to Mr, D'Arcy Tate, the
vice-president of the railway company, for the final adjudication. Mr.
'I'aie has signified his preference for
"Squamish," the Indian name of that
locality and of the river emptying
into Howe Sound at thai point. As
Mr. \V. I''. Robertson is a representative of the Geographic Board of
Canada, his recommendation In the
matter will In every probability be
accepted aud Newport will in future
l.e known as "Squamish."
The name which has been adjudged the winner was suggested by
twenty-eight of the school children
j who participated in the competition.
As a result each of these Will receive
a share of ihe $«fi(i prize, amounting to  $17.86.

duced to automata as merit is sacrificed to seniority. I have not been
able to find in England a man fit for
the post, but in Mr. Thornton 1
have found a general manager admirably qualified and whose career
has been one succession of intellectual railway triumphs."
Henry Thornton, selected as general manager of the Great Eastern
Railway of England, left for New-
York today to close up his affairs
there.
"The annoyance and surprise expressed by the British press at my
appointment are perhaps natural,"
he said, "but i think they are unjustified. Personally I feel that the
English railroad managers are capable men. My appointment means the
introduction of American methods
only when they are consistent with
the  practice  of  Bug'lish   railroads."
"Great. Britain has not in many
years had such a shock to her pride
as thai, exiierienced by the appointment of Mr. Thornton." The Sunday
Observer says, prefacing a couple ot
columns of opinion which are to the
effect that something must be
wrong with ihe system nt' promotion  in  Un'  British railway.-.
George .1. VVardle, ui.P., editor of
the Railway Review, says that  If tlie
