IN THE SCHOOLS
Room At Seal Cove Will Opei On Non-
day  Under Charge of
Miss Moore.
With  the Exception  of that Centre
No Now Pupils will be Taken
in   Primary   Classes.
In connection with the work of
the public schools here, it is found
necessary to close the primary rooms
from receiving any additional pupils, who have not been in attendance at school before. In the case
of the new school at Seal Cove,
there is an exception made owing to
the fact that that school is only
opening. There a class will be opened for new pupils.
The following letter dealing with
the  matter  has  been  addressed  by
the principal to the Board of School
Trustees.
0.  H.    Nelson    Esq.,     chairman  of
School Board.
Dear Sir:—It would seem advisable
to notify the public that no more
beginners will be received at either
the Central (King Edward) or the
Second Avenue school until the commencement of the Fall term In the
latter part of August.
„• For residents within the limits
set for the Seal Cove school a beginners' class will be formed during
the coming week after which no new
beginners will be received this term:
Pupils must be of the full age of six
and in good health.
Parents will further notice, that
it is not recommended that pupils
beyond the Intermediate Grade will
enroll at the Seal Cove school, but
that they should attend the Central
school In Section Six, where the work
of their grade can be more fully
handled.
This new division (No. 11) it is
intended, will operate with and under the same general supervision as
the Second Avenue and Central
Schools. And whatever more you
deem advisable Mr . Chairman.
'      Respectfully,
D. McG.  HUNTER.
GRAIN ELEVATOR PLANNED HEjaE
J. E. Dalrymple, Vice President of the G.T.P. Gives the Information That the Company Will
> Locate It At Fairview-The City, He Says Need Take No Further Concern On That
Point As the Company Is Looking After It—The Most Modern
Type Will Be Provided In the City.
The G. T. P. has now contemplation for this city one of the most
modern grain elevators to be located
in the vicinity of Fairview. This
was the statement made by J. E. Dalrymple, vice-president and traffic
manager of the G. T. P., before the
Board of Trade yesterday afternoon
in reply to a question put by W. E.
Williams. Mr. Dalrymple added to
this statement, that the city did not
need to take further concern regarding that matter.
There had been some anxiety here
locally that the matter of grain elevators were not receiving as much
attention here as the importance of
the matter demands. This is now
set at rest by the statement of Mr.
Dalrymple, speaking on behalf of the
company. ,
Will Be Modern.
Speaking    at    further    length re
garding this matter Mr. Dalrymple
explained to the Journal that the
type of elevator that would be provided, would be of the most modern
type now in use. It would be similar to the one that the company has
now at Fort William, the largest on
the Great Lakes. In this connection
it was explained by Mr. Dalrymple
that the structure can be built in
nine months' time, when all is decided as to the location of the. undertaking.
Type of Elevator.
The type of elevator that will be
used, will be that in use at Fort
William by the same company. This
starts off with a central portion
where provision is made for the necessary engines used In the whole
works. With this goes provision for
a capacity of 800,000 bushels of
grain.    This will be by no means the
limit of the elevator, however. It
will be constructed according to the
latest plans which provide for circular cement storage places with the
space Intervening among these cells,
also made in storage quarters. The
result is a very strong structure, and
one that lends itself to enlargment
from time to time as the demand is
created.
Ten Million Bushels.
In the case of the one to be located here there will be an ultimate
capacity of ten million bushels. |Thn
machinery to be installed will be
such as to handle that amount, which
shows that the G. T. P. has in view
a very great development along this
line.
The exact location of the plant is
not made known by the officials at
this time. There are, in fact, some
details  to  be  worked  out   before  it
will be possible    to    say definitely
where the elevator will be placed..
Question Is Settled.
One thing which is of decided satisfaction to the citizens of Prince
Rupert, is the announcement that
the city need have no further concern with respect to this matter of
the elevator. That is something
that the G. T. P. has settled upon
and it will be carried out independently by the company There is a
distinct understanding in this matter, and the company will be ready
says Mr. Dalrymple to handle all the
grain that is offering by this route.
In view of the fact that the G. T. P.
is essentially a route for handling
heavy freight, In view of the splendid grades that exist, there is an assurance that Prince Rupert will become the great grain port on the
Pacific.

DISCUSSED RATES
WITH OFFICIALS
Members of Board of Trade Held Informal Conference With J. C. Dalrymple and Other
Officials of the G.T.P. Yesterday
Afternoon-Readiness Expressed On the Part
of the Company
to Meet the
Shippers
The weather on the outside has
improved somewhat and in consequence the halibut steamers arriving here for the past few days have
brought better catches than have
prevailed for some time past. Tiie
George E. Foster, the Canadian Fish
& Cold Storage vessel reached port
yesterday with 90,000 pounds on
hoard. This is regarded as a small
catch for the craft, but is much belter than the catches that have been
reported for some time past. The
change in the take of halibut Is due
to the fact that there has been a
decided change for the better In the
weather.
The fish that is now brought in
Is all Intended for the New York
market. It will be carried to Vancouver and put on the train.there
for the east. This fish goes forward
at express speed In order that It may
get on the market in the shortest
time possible.
Some idea of the importance of
the industry in a shaping line is
conveyfld by the fact that the catch
of the Foster on this trip from
which she has just returned, is sufficient to fill four cars. When the
G. T. P. is a through carrying line
the fishing industry will be one of
the great producers of freight With
all the concerns that are now represented here dong business over the
line alone there will be a steady demand for cars to take care of the
trade   that   will   assuredly   be   built
up,
The Canadian Fish & Cold Storage Company will now enter upon
the mild cursing of salmon. The
James Carruthers of the fleet at
Seal Cove will leave in a few days
for Masset for a consignment of sur-
ing salmon that is to be taken there.
This will be brought here and mild
cured for that market. This will
be the beginning of this branch of
the trade by the company.

however, that the citizens of Prince
Rupert did not want to go hack to
the old conditions, but would rather
take present day conditions.    At the
same time his company was ready
to meet the complaints that might
be raised at any time and go into
the conditions that were complained of with the idea of meeting tlie
difficulties.

Granby Company, who are on their
way to the smelter town to make an
inspection of the work that is there
in progress. Included among the
party was the general superintendent
of the company, O. B. Smith, who is
paying one of the regular visits of
inspection to the place to see how
the work is progressing. At 1 he
smelter there are preparations being made tor a very active season In
the putting In ot the necessary machinery  that will be required  there.
There   will   be   a   large   shipment,
of machinery for the smelter arrive
in a short time now and be unloaded
right in the northern town.
In the meantime pending the completion of the smelter there is no
time being lost by the management
in the carrying out of necessary development work in tlie mine and in
the blocking off of the ore ready
for mining. The showing in the
Hidden Creek mine is probably one
of the greatest in ihe world and with
the smelter erected there will be
tremendous tonnage available for an
indefinite  time.
G. W. Wooster, W. A. Williams
the smelter superintendent and Dr.
Dickson are included among the officials who will proceed today to tbe

There is reason to expect that the

there Is a prospect that before the

A   GRAIN   PORT
The announcement that was made
by Vice-President Dalrymple yesterday afternoon that his company was
already to take care ot the needs of
this port as a grain shipping point
was indeed welcome news to citizens here. Il assures the city that
as soon .as there is traffic available
in this line the elevators will be
erected by the company. It is not
In any vague sense that the announcement is made, but on the
contrary there is the decision announced that all the plans in this
connection are well in hand and
ready to be coverted into a working
proposition and the building erected.
The site at Fairview is well selected, no doubt by the expert, M|\
Bogue.
The providing of an elevator for
the grain trade wjll mean an immense thing for the city of Prince
Rupert, and it will likewise mean
much to the G. T. P. The company
is planning these works here in order that much more traffic is drawn
this way. Thai is exactly what the
citizens of Prince Rupert want.
Elevators without the trade to warrant them are practically useless in
any port. The G. T. P. when it
erects the elevators, has its disposal
the means for seeing that there is
the grain carried here to keep these
busy.
Railway companies are concerned in the creation of traffic. The
interchange of commodities between
the different part of the country is
the means whereby transportation
companies exist. The hauling of
grain from the prairies here and the
return to the prairies with trains or
fish and lumber is exactly wtiat the
('•■ T. P. wants to see carried into
effect.
There is an evidence on the part
of the railway company to serve this
City well. It is not to be denied
that ihe company in this line is concerned in the development of business thai will make money tor itself. That is the purpose of building such a line and that is the purpose that the shareholders expect
the officials to see is lived up to.
But when the whole siiuation is considered it must be admitted that
the ii. T. P. in the furtherance of
its objects is showing a very friendly spirit towards this city. The cities
of Victoria and Vancouver are clamoring for drydocks and for elevators,
and send from time to time delegations to uttawa in the hope oi' getting assistance in ihis line from the
Government, while liiis is being done
in the south, Prince Rupert has the
assurance that both of these advantages on a very large scale are to
be provided without any effort being put forth to secure them on the!
part of the city itself; Jn the case of
the drydoek the actual work is well
advanced, in ihe case ol he ele-
i there Ii to be a start made al
a  very early da c, il     i      ex] ecti d
bate of one-third of the excise duty
—the sole encouragement those who
are fostering this struggling branch
of agriculture can obtain from the
government.
On Lord lveagh's estate, near
Thetford, on the Norfolk and Suffolk border, 25 acres are to be
placed under tobacco cultivation; in
Hampshire a large acreage will be
given up to tobacco by Mr. Brandon,
a well-known grower there; at Meth-
wold, Norfolk, Major Whitmore will
have six acres planted, and the
Brookville Small Holders' Society, in
the neighboring village of Stoke
Ferry, six acres; and in North
Wales, Dorsetshire, Surrey, Warwickshire, Scotland, and elsewhere,
individual experimenters are putting
down a few acres apiece.
A few days ago an order for 10
ozs. of tobacco seed was sent to Virginia by Mr. J. C. Walis, of Peterborough, who is superintending the
cultivation of Lord lveagh's tobacco.
This is the largest order for tobacco
seed emanating from England in
moder ntimes. There will be three
million seeds in the 10 ounces. So
fine are they that it is necessary before sowing to mix them with 15 or
20 times their bulk of dry ashes or
sand.
Mr. Walis, who is accounted the
pioneer of the re-introduction of tobacco growing into England two centuries after it had been suppressed
by Cromwell's stern troopers, recently told of his experiments. Like Sir
Walter Raleigh, he introduced tobacco from Virginia. "In 1876 I came
home from Virginia, bringing a
little tobacco seed with me. Some of
this I planted at Kimbolton, on the
Duke of Manchester's estate, where
my father was estate manager, and
satisfied myself that tobacco woula
grow in England.
"The few pounds I raised there 1
cured and smoked myself. In 1885
the possibilities of tobacco growing
as a serious agricultural undertaking were brought to the fore by Lord
Walsingham. On his estate at Mer-
ton a crop of tobacco was raised by
me to show that the venture was
commercially possible, but the excise refused permission for the cultivation to be continued on a more extended scale. I have always grown
a few pounds of tobacco for my own
use in my garden.
"Experiments have demonstrated
conclusively that tobacco can be
grown In England and made a profitable crop, and I look forward to the
time when I shall see hundreds of
acres of tobacco grown in this country. Small holders ought to do well
with the crop if they co-operate in securing the necessary drying and curing barn. The cultivation of the crop
Is easy, and in the winter months the
work of stripping, sorting, etc., provides light employment for the women and girls in warm, dry barns."

PRINCE  RUPERT
Mr. Abbott H. Thayer, an artist
who has given much study to the
question, discusses the invisibility of
icebergs at night in the last issue of
the bulletin of tbe Hydrograpiiic Office says the Washington correspondent of the New York Herald,
who gives the following quotation
from  Mr. Thayer's article: '
"The Titanic and the Arizona ran
into icebergs because of the universal
notion that white shows at night
even against a clear sky. Until this
Impression can be corrected, the
world will continue at the mercy of
the chance of more Ice accidents.
"A steamer may be close to an iceberg on a clear moonless night, often on a moonlight night, without
the slightest sight of it. Any observing person who has lived in tho
country knows perfectly well that
snowy roofs on such a night are apt
to bo Indistinguishable from the sky
and would always bo so if they stood
alone out on a plain.
"In order In test this matter, notice rirst thai ii is the most nearly
horizontal ton surfaces or a berg,
snowy ro f or other white object that
receive tlig most skylight, and consequently most nearly match II. It
follows that with Ihe average hilltop shape of an iceberg it will be
the highest expanses ot it visible
rrom the ship's watch that are sure
to be indistinguishable. These highest expanses, or course, constltue the
contour that the watch would see
if ill. berg were visible, and when
lliesp become thus effaced the berg
Itself Is effaced.
"Even when a berg is not tall
enough to stand up against the sky
to the eyes of the watch its top will
necessarily lie looked nl against the
most distant part of the sea; and
this part averages, especially In calm
weather, much brighter than the
nearer water; and a sky-matching
berg top could not often be distinguished from it any better than
from the sky Itself. When a berg's
top (which, of course, will have not

DISCI8SED RATES
(Continued From Page One)
between Vancouver and here. The
rates between the United States
points was cheaper than between the
Canadian ports. The question of
gasoline was pointed out and that is
was contended was so much cheaper
in Ketchikan owing to the fact that
there was a cheaper rate of carriage
that local users in large quantities
were considering the advisability of
buying in Ketchikan. The question
of eggs was also cited and the president raised the point of farm animals. The rate now in force made
it a very difficult for a intending
settler to come into the country as
the wish of the citizens of Prince
Rupert was with respect to this settling up of the district.
In many instances the local agents
of the G. T. P., and the C. P. R.
were appealed to. Mr. McNab contended that the rates that are shown
in the schedule of the shipping companies out of Seattle were proportionate as to the rate charged with
those that were in force to Prince
Rupert.
Mr. Mobley contended that these
companies had two schedules, and
that the rate was altogether lower
than was shown in the one schedule.
Capt. Nicholson went into some of
the points that arose and explained that the companies operating between the souther ports and Prince
Rupert, were trying to arrive at a
basis for charging that would give
satisfaction  to all concerned.
Mr. Dalrymple pointed out that
the company in common with the C.
P. R. was giving the city a first
class service. It had cost them
money to do this and some return
was expected. The company which
he represented wanted to do all it
possibly could for the city. They
had been to heavy expenditures,
however. It was not unreasonable
for them to expect for some of the
old money that had gone out, they
should hope to see some new come
hack. He did nol think that they
should compare the Alaskan rates
with those here. That was something that his company had nothing
whatever to do. The rates that were
charged were based upon the idea
of getting something like interest
on the investment that the company
was put to witli respect to the trade.
He promised to look into the points
tnat had been raised to see what
could be done. When the board felt
at anytime that there were inequalities in connection with the rates he
would advise that the local agents,
Mr. Mi-Master and Mr. McNab be
consulted and the views of the hoard
placed before them. These men had
local sympathies and would give the
matter every consideration. For his
part he was prepared to do all that
could he done, but, unfortunately
they had to consider the revenues
as well.
"With regard to local rates on the
G. T. P. railway some of these questions were taken up and the vice-
president made a note of them for
further consideration. It was pointed out by him that in this matter
they would find the G. T. P. ready
to meet them more than half way.
It was the aim of the company to
encourage settlement along the line
of the road. In this they were equally as deeply interested as wero the
citizens of Prince Rupert. Until the
line was taken over by the t affic
department there were some difficulties In the matter of arranging
the rates to suit all.
The thanks of the board was extended to Mr. Dalrymple and the
other officials by Mr. Dawson for
the consideration shown. It was
conveyed to him that It was in no
spirit of antagonism that the board
met them, tint only to try and ad-
Just the matters that gave them con-
cern from   time to time.
Mr. Dalrymple in turn expressed his pleasure nt meeting ihe citizens nnd discussing the points Hint
were raised.
ARK WELL PLEASED
(Continued  From  Page One)
Rupert this morning, returning Monday morning and then proceed south.
Mr. Dalrymple the head of the
party when seen yesterday afternoon
after he .had made an inspection of
the whole of the work that the company has in hand here and after
touring about the city expressed
himself as well pleased with all that
he had seen. The company wasl
bending its efforts now to the completion of the line and the prepar-
tion of the terminals for the arrival
of the business. The work on the
hotel and the terminals will be
started upon just as quickly as it
can be done. The company is anxious to get on with this and there
will be no delay.
Mr. Dalrymple says that the G.
T. P. has great faith in the city, and
he is inclined to have still greater
faith after his tour about the place
this time. He is more optimistic
than ever, although he never could
be said to be other than enthusiastic over the city.
Mr. Bell and Mr. Hinton have
similar opinons to those expressed
by the traffic manager of the company. Mr. Bell says that the expectations are that there will be a tremendous amount of business developed at once following the completion of the line of communication. The terminals that will be
provided here are to he of a character that will take care of the traffic that is to be handled and the citizens of Prince Rupert need have no
fear that they will not have here a
flourishing city.

TELLS OF CONDITIONS

Writing from Silver Creek, B. C,
under date of April 3rd. to a friend
in Seattle, George W. Carmack says:
"I arrived here on April Fool Day,
and from all indications it is a fool
trip as far as Silver Creek is concerned There have been some holes
put down to bedrock, with poor returns; just enough to show there is
gold in the country. I have not had
time to look around, and I am fixing
up snowshoes so I can take some
trips over the mountains, so I can
get a lay of the country. I believe
the country will he good, but good
pay has got to be found.
"Prospecting is unsatisfactory this
time of the year. A lot of the boys
are going lo leave in a couple of
days, hut I am going to stay and
give the country a good test. I want
the boys to get value received for
their money; the country looks good,
and 1 think -it is good, but everybody
should stay away until further developments. As soon as I get anything that I know is good I will send
you a wire. The trip has been expensive, as everything went up 50
to 100 per cent. I managed to get
four small dogs at Skagway and one
at Capeross; they cost me about $40
each. I had three sleighs in my
party, with three dogs on each sleigh,
We went from Carcross to Atlin in
three days, and in seven days from
Atlin  here   (Silver Creek).
"The trail is not had only on some
of the portages, but it is very crooked, you meet yourself half a dozen
times coming back. The best way
to come in here In the winter is
to go to Tagish, then east to Lake
Teslin, then up to Teslin. The country from Tagish to Teslin is level;
there is plenty of game in the country, and we will not go hungry, even
if we run out of the Chee Chaca
grub.
"The country round here is slaked
from Dan to Beersheby, all of Atlin and all of the Indians came here
and stuck their stakes in the snow
and then went and recorded. I could
secure plenty of claims hut I wont
buy pigs in a suck. Do not take
any notice of reports from this country until you hear from me. We are
within thirty miles of a telegraph
Btatlqn nnd as soon as I find
anything  good  I   will   wire you.

What is Canada's fair share of the
burden of Empire? Every year Great
Britain is engaged in warfare of
some Icind. At long intervals there
are wars of a serious character. At
frequent intervals there are punitive
expeditions and frontier engagements. All of these are necessary to
the Empire and therefore are necessary to Canada so long as we remain
a part of the Empire, says the Toronto News. During the active lifetime of men now living there have
been many campaigns of importance:
The Crimea, the Persian expedition,
the Indian mutiny, two Egyptian
campaigns, the Zulu war, two expeditions into Thibet and one of importance to Afghanistan, and twice
have British soldiers and sailors
been fighting in China. A hundred
years ago, England, with a population of about 16,000,000, incurred a
debt of £500,000,000 to save the
world, and Incidentally the Overseas
Dominions, from th e ambition of an
unscrupulous Corsican. English people, feel that it is incumbent on them
to go to the help of any part of the
Empire that may be attacked or may
be subjected to unjust treatment by
a more powerful neighbor. The difficulties of Canada, Australia, South
Africa, New Zealand and India are
shared by the Mother Country. Nearly every man in Canada today is
anxious to show his gratitude in the
manner that will best serve England
and according to the clearly expressed wishes of the British  Admiralty.
None of the Overseas Dominions
can share with England the daily
duty of guarding the frontiers. Small
communities are developing mighty
territories. They are doing this successfully and are growing wealthy by
their labors. They cannot do this
work and also send men to support
punitive expeditions in Central Asia
or the tropical swamps of Africa.
It might he impossible even to enlist from a population of less than
8,000,000 sufficient land and sea
forces to defend the whole of Canada from serious attack. So far as
defence is concerned, we must continue to lean heavily on the Mother
Country for some time. It is just as
well to realize this fact. If Canada
were robbed of the protection given
by Great Britain, it would lie at the
mercy of any of the powers that
might adopt a policy of aggression,
unless It sought safety under the
Monroe doctrine, and found the
United States able to enforce its authority. Canada is young, strong.
progressive, and possessed of unbounded natural wealth. But Canada
is not of itself one of the great,
powers. While boasting of our industry and enterprise, a little humility
would he becoming when discussing
the subject of defence.
Some day Canada will he the centre of commercial gravity of the Empire. Its population will be double
that of Great Britain, and its wealth
many times as great. Then Canada
will be the dominating partner in the
Empire. For the present we should
be content to prepare for that day.
Our militia forms the nucleus of an
army. What can be done with regard
to a navy Any reasonable man will
appreciate the heavy task that a new
country undertakes when it attempts
to build Dreadnoughts. We had better start building gunboats, destroyers and small cruisers. We shall have
to start with small crews that will
be able to man only small vessels.
It may take many years more, to
develop naval dockyards of even
moderate capacity, and all the time
we shall be hampered by adverse
climatic conditions during several
months of each year. But as Canadians have triumphed over difficulties in the past, so will they triumph
over difficulties in the future. Only
patience  will  be  needed.
in Hie meantime   Greal ' Britain
needs help thai we ai well able lo
