Board Of Trade Last Evening Deals With Question Of Industries Reporting To Be Wanting To Begin Work At Once-J. Sidney Smith Raises Discussion Relative To The Matter-An-
other Industry Wants
To Locate Here
At the meeting of the Board of
Trade held last evening in the City
Hall the question of having waterfront available for industries that
might want to come into the city
was discussed. This matter came up
on the request of J. 'Sidney Smith,
the active head of the Atlin Fisheries. Mr. Smith became a member of
the board last night, and raised the
question as to getting waterfront to
carry on bis industry.
Mr. Smith said that he had been
here about three months trying to
secure a waterfront lot for his business. He seemed to be no nearer now
to attaining it than when he came.
It was explained by the uraud Trunk
Pacific that owing to some difficulty
about the waterfront with the Dominion Government it was impossible
to give the required site, He then referred to the sites that were held by
the Provincial Government on' the
waterfront, and these he thought
might be opened up in some way. He

Liberals Split Over Would
Be Leaders
Revelstoke, May 30.—The Liberal convention, meeting here,-
has despatched a telegram of congratulation to Sir George Ross on
TTis attitude on the Naval Bill. An amendment in connection with
the platform committee's report that P. C, Wade be omitted from
one of the committees was warmly discussed. Capt. Worsnop, of
Kamloops, supported the clause on the ground that the Liberal
party was run too much by the so-called "old war horses" of the
Coast, to the detriment of the new blood coming into tbe province. The difficulty was met by adding Capt. Worsnop and Mr.
Hamilton to the resolutions committee. Another warm discussion
followed the proposal of E. S. Woodward, of Victoria, that the
platform of the party be boiled down.
5##tt#**imBSfttWH>fttK^^
had, while in Victoria, tried to get
in touch with the Government on
the matter. Mr. Ross, the minister
tnat he understood had charge of
this department, had not kept his
appointments with him. He heard
that it would have to come before
the attorney-general anyway. He
thought that the Board of Trade
might do something in this matter.
He was a stranger In the city and
wanted assistance. He thought that
there should be some way of getting
the land opened up on a lease for,
say twenty years, at a reasonable
valuation. He would be agreeable to
attaching a restriction to the lease
that there should be a certain
amount of work done in, say twelve
months. He did not want to see the
laud thrown open to speculation.
They might take the speculative aspect away. He did uot think, however, that he should have to pay
more than was paid in Seattle or
Victoria for waterfront in Prince
Rupert.
Mr. Smith said that he represented in this matter another party
which was prepared to spend many
more times the money that he was
in permanent improvements. That
party would be ready to spend four
times what he did. This would mean
a very considerable pay roll In the
city. The other party would spend
$40,000 in six months in the city.
In reply to a question, Mr. Smith
said that he would want about 200
feet of waterfront. The other party
would want about 300 feet.
G. W. Nickerson pointed out that
the Imperial Oil Company had been
unable to get a piece of waterfront
for its oil tanks and storage works
here, which would mean much to the
city. He did not think that the Dominion Government wanted to hold
up progress in the city, but he
thought that there should be a settlement of this matter one way or the
other. He knew the company to
which Mr. Smith alluded, and its

H. S. CLEMENTS
ON POST OFFICE
MEMBER FOR THE DISTRICT REPLIES   TO   THE    HOARD   OF
TRADE   WITH   RESPECT
TO MATTER.
He Points Out That When the Building Is Erected There Will
Be  No Ground  for
Complaint.
At the meeting of the, Board of
Trade last night a letter was read
from IT. S. Clements, M.P., the member for the district, dealing with the
question of the postoffice site and
the message that was sent him from
the board at the last meeting protesting against the location.
Mr. Clements stated in his letter
that It was. under the hardest strain
that he was able to secure the site
that ,was obtained. Tbe Government
could not see the value In It. It was
impossible to obtain more at the
time. He explained that he had himself favored a site on the Government Block, but when this was taken
up with the provincial authorities
the premier would not agree to the
taking over of it. When it was taken
into account that there was a desire
that there be no open space about
the site he was satisfied from his
knowledge of the situation that the
site would be a good one. When the
building was erected they would, he
felt sure, have no reason for any
complaint in the matter.
The letter, on the motion of G.
R. Naden, was filed.
In explanation of the dropping of
the petition that it was proposed
should be circulated it was explained
that It was found by the committee
that the lots were already being acquired and that it was too late to
have any effect. It was therefore
decided that it would be better to
allow the matter to drop.

There is in the city at the present
time Mr. Ogilvie, who has been associated with the boundary survey
work for the Dominion Government
ever since the delimitation of the
line between Canada and Alaska
was commenced. He is here to enter
upon the duties of locating the last
of the boundary, that which pertains to the sea and which takes
its start from Cape Muzon at the
southern extremity of the Alaskan
Islands and runs to the line in Portland Canal. This work is a difficult
one and will take some considerable
time to locate exactly. This year
there will be a good start made on
Pit it, but so much depends upon the
weather that it is difficult to say
what progress will be made with
any degree of certainty.
Mr. Ogilvie is one of the young
men of the Dominion service, but he
is regarded as one of the most exacting in his work. He has undisputed ability in his line and in charge
of the work that he has had in hand
he has made a decided name for
himself.
Speaking yesterday of tbe question of jurisdiction over Hecate
Straits, he expressed the opinion
that the whole of the waters of that
strait were in reality Canadian waters. In the past the waters have
been regarded as open to the world
in the matter of fishing, and in consequence the United States fishing
boats have been in the habit of coming to these waters and taking halibut and conveying them to Seattle or
elsewhere. If the contention of Mr.
Ogilvie is the correct one, and there
are many who hold this view, then
the waters of Hecate Strait throughout the whole extent of it, and not
alone for three milss on either side,
will at once come under the jurisdiction of the Canadian Government
and be open only to Canadian fishing boats. Mr. Ogilvie does not pretend to advance his views as an authority.  It  is  his view of the ques
tion, however, and lie is not by any
means alone in this.
If this is found to be the correct
interpretation of the matter, then
the straits become of immense Importance to this port. It will mean
that the fishing grounds off the entrance to this harbor become the
greatest asset that any place ever
had. It will mean that the great
bulk of the fishing for halibut on
this coast must of necessity be done
out of this harbor and tbe fish be
landed here.
Mr. Ogilvie is already at work on
his surveys. He will spend the whole
of the summer In this part making
the city of Prince Rupert his headquarters from time to time when
not actually out on the work.

Ottawa, May 311.- At an eat'b
hour this morning the Senate, by a
vote of 51 to L'7, declared that the
Naval Bill of the Government should
be referred to tho Canadian people.
There was one deflection from the
Liberal ranks and one from the Conservative forces In the Senate.
Senator Ellis of St. John, N.B.,
voted against tbe amendment of Sir
George Ross, the leader of the Liberals, while Senator Montplair of
Quebec- voted with the Liberals.
The vote came following speeches
by Senator Dandurand and Sir Mackenzie Bowell, who, despite his age
of ninety-one years, spoke for more
than an- hour and a half in defence
of the bill. No demonstration of any
kind took place when the vote was
taken. It was taken in absolute
silence.
The form of amendment inlro-
duced by Sir George was as follows:
"That this House Is not justified In
giving its assent to this bill until it
has been submitted to the country."
The  motion    proposed    by    Sir
George Ross Is not an amendment
to the bill. It Is a proposed ground
for the rejection of the measure. The
proceeding does not send the bill
back to the Commons for amendment, but strikes It off the order
paper. In 1910 Senator I.ougheeil
proposed a like motion In respect to
the Laurier naval bill. That was in
accord with a line of policy to which
Mr. Borden and bis colleagues have
adhered in opposition and in power.
In opposition they asked Sir Wilfrid
to make an Immediate contribution
by vote of Parliament to Imperial
naval defence, and to prepare a
permanent naval policy to he referred to the people, This programme they submitted to the Commons and the Senate. On this policy,
with others, they went to the people In the general election and were
sustained. This Is their policy now,
and It Is accepted by tbe responsible
representatives of the people. II will
be blocked by Irresponsible senators
rejected by the people. In 1910 the
Conservatives were In a minority in
both houses. They were able to <li-
vide the Senate on the issue without
killing in that Irresponsible chamber
a measure which had passed the
Commons. A motion proposed by a
majority In the Senate has more
i-erlotis consequences, and should be
considered not only In the light 01
What It expresses, bul in the light
of  'Is consequences.
Sir George Ross, who three years
ago refused to take the opinion of
the country before adopting a permanent naval policy, has now led his
party in the Senate to demand a
reference to the country of a measure which supplies exactly what the
British Government has declared to
be the thing most needed. He was
willing without a popular mandate,
to commit Canada to a permanent
and continuous naval programme.
This year be supports bis leader in
proposing to multiply that programme by three, making an investment of three or four times that
which Mr. Borden now proposes, and
all without reference to the electors.
The only thing he will not    permit
without an appeal Is the one thing
thai Britain needs and desires for
Immediate relief.

(Special  Correspondence.)
Skidegate, May 28.—A number of
Indian boats are now out, gathering
dogfish for the B.C. Fisheries plant,
Skidegate. The oilery of the company is not located with the remainder of the large plant, having
been erected on tbe opposite side of
the inlet from Aliford Bay. The livers of one dozen of dogfish produce
one gallon of oil, and the price to
be paid the fishermen amounts to fifteen  cents per gallon.
The gasoline steamers Gryme and
Victor of the B.C. Fisheries took h
number of men and boats to the fishing grounds al I.angara Island last
week. The Skidegate Indians will no1
take part in the trolling for salmon,
ontentlng themselves with Ihe dog

PENALTY OF GROWTH.
The discussion that took place
last night at the meeting of the
Board of Trade reveals a state of
affairs that is being pressed upon
the residents of the city with increasing importance every day. This
is the question of waterfront for the
industries that seek to come here.
In this matter the Grand Trunk Pacific is likewise deeply concerned
and there is every reason for believing that that company has no desire to act other than fairly with all
that seek to obtain facilities for carrying on operations here. But this
city is suffering from the rapid development within the place and the
demands for the immediate future.
Were the city, like the ordinary
centre, developed after long years of
growth during which time the place
had settled down to its natural conditions with the regular lapse of
time, there would be none of these
difficulties confronting it. The perplexities that are facing the place
are the natural penalties that the
city is paying for its phenomenal
growth. It is the healthiest sign that
there could be.
The Grand Trunk Pacific in    the
disposition of the waterfront that it
has at its disposal has a very serious
proposition to face up to. In the very
heart of the city as it exists today-
there is not available a very large extent of waterfront. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has had, at a very heavy expense, a careful  examination of the
whole   proposition   made   by   an   expert.   His  report  is  now being considered, and until the officials of the
company have satisfied    themselves
as to the final disposition of the waterfront it is foolish for them to dispose of any that they    have.    The
company must provide for their own
needs along the lines that they have
in view for this port. If it is to be
a port of no importance to the company there will, of course, be little
waterfrontage  required.   But  this  is
not  the evident    intention    of  the
company. On the other hand, there
is to be laid out here by the Grand
Trunk Pacific one of the best ports
that there is on the Pacific Coast. It
is to be the great port of the company and the plans they have are to
be on a most elaborate scale. Pending  the settlement of these things,
there    will  apparently have to    be
some patience shown in spite of tbe
fact that it is vexatious to the    intending manufacturers and the citizens generally.
Many and odd are the causes of
interruptions in telephone service,
but one of the oddest comes from
one of the small exchanges of the
B.C. Telephone Company near Vancouver. An "L" party line sub-
criber complained that her telephone
always went out of order about the
same time on Friday afternoons. Although several complaints had been
received, the plant department could
never find out what the trouble was,
as it took a man nearly an hour
to get the subscriber's house and
the fault was always cleared within
that  time.
Realizing that since tbe trouble
was so regular and occurred at about
the same time each week the cause
must be the same in each instance,
the wire chief had men go to the
homes of both parties on the line
just about the time the trouble was
expected. It was then ascertained
that the lady of the house on the
R" line was placid'y using the receiver as a holder for darning socks!

*     WATER SYSTEMS    *
*••••*•**•••*••***•* *•*•••
The Federal Conservation Commission is turning out a series of
valuable and instructive publications. This week's book is a statistical and descriptive account and
catalogue of waterworks in Canada.
Every city, town and village which
has a water service, or is providing
one, is included in the list. The cost
of plant is $550, with maintenance
expenses of $15, and revenue $ll!f>,
at Norwich, Ont.; $800, with $25
maintenance and $132 revenue at
Cedars, Que. The other extremes are
Toronto with a revenue of $822,000;
Montreal, $1,143,000 revenue and a
$14,000,000 municipal plant. The
cost of tho Winnipeg system is $3,-
500,000 with a revenue of $425,000,
while Vancouver waterworks are reported to have cost $3,000,000, with
a revenue from consumers of $400,-
000.
There is a remarkable variation In
the consumption of water in proportion to population. Vancouver people
served by the general system take
17,000,000 gallons per day, or 13li
gallons per head. Victoria residents
are satisfied with 80 gallons, which
may be partly due lo the metre system. Calgary takes 175 gallons per
head, Edmonton 120. Regina goes
rather dry with 45 gallons, while
Saskatoon uses 09 gallons. Winnipeg is economical, taking a daily allowance of 46 gallons. Toronto's
consumption is 99 gallons, that of
Ottawa 175, Hamilton 123, Kingston 121, while London consumes
only 84. Montreal, has a public and
private waterworks serving different
localities, the fru-nier district taking 122 gallons per head, the other
109. Quebec Cily finds use for 134
gallons per head, while Hull consumes 211. -No 'ess tnan 217-gallons
per head daily are required in Mali-,
fax. St. John takes 208 gallons,
while the capital of Prince Edward
Island gets along with 59 gallons.
The difference is due in part to the
character of the loca'. industries,
partly to tho generosity of the supply In some towns and the consequent disregard of waste. In general those cities which sell water by
measure rather than by the flat rate
use less.
/There were in Canada in 1911
348 waterworks plants, whereas in
1905 there were 266, in 1900 214,
and in 1890 only 112. Nova Scotia
has 29, New Brunswick 16, Prince
Edward Island 3, Quebec 96, Ontario 144, Manitoba 8, Saskatchewan
15, Alberta 16, and British Columbia 21. This province had only one
waterworks system in 1875 and
1880, two in 1885, five in 1890, six
in 1895, 13 in 1900, 16 In 1905, and
21 in 1911. Alberta appears first on
the list in 1895, but 12 of the 16
plants in that province have been
established since 1905. In the same
period Saskatchewan has increased
her 12 to 15.
Of the 46 waterworks systems in
Canada 228, or nearly two-thirds,
depend upon the pump. Manitoba has
no gravity supply, Ontario pumps
for 126 waterworks and uses gravity
for only 18. Nova Scotia and British
Columbia have less need of pumping. In the former province 19
waterworks out of 29, and in British
Columbia 17 out of 21 places get
water by gravity. This Is one advantage of a hill country.
Canadian cities and towns have
paid $95,600,000 for waterworks
plants. They pay $3,500,000, besides interest, for maintenance.
There are 5,215 miles of mains, carrying on the average 113 gallons pel-
day to each person. The average cost
In all Canada is ten cents per 1000
gallons, and It may comfort the people of British Columbia to know
that they pay only eight and one-
fifth cents, if the general cost of
living Is higher here than elsewhere, the price of the most necessary commodity is lower than thai
of any other province except Nova
Scotia. Moreover, the cost of water
per head of the people supplied in
this province is less than in any
other province except Prince Ed- j
ward Island, where they use on the
average less than "half the quantity
that wo take.

road through the reserve.
Many  Men   Fishing,
Over one thousand men are at the
fishing grounds, off Langara Island,
and the latest news is that there is
a demand for an increase in the price
of fish. It Is reported that a strike
is in progress, a number of I.W.W.'s
being active in leading the fishermen
to demand more pay for the salmon.
The steam trawler James Carruthers conveyed the mail to the
residents of the north end of Graham
Island on the day of thi-\iiiisliap to
the steamer Prince Albert, for]
which the residents were very thankful to Manager William Lord of the
Canadian Pish .v- Cold Storage Company. Indian Agenl Ueasy returned!
to Masset on the steamer, brii glng
the tirsl news of Ihe Btranding ol
the regular boat.
Trying Experiences,
Indian Agent Thomas Deasy had
a varied experience during his lasi ■
visit to the Skidegate end of his!
agency. While holding the election
of the Indian Council at Skidegate
Reserve the building took fire and
he returned to his old calling as a
fire lighter, with his usual luck in
saving the building. While crossing
from Skidegate to Prince Rupert a
wave came into the dining room
while he was engaged in drinking a
glass of Eps >m Salts. He was on the
Prince Albert when the vessel went
on the rocks at Port Simpson, and
caught a trawler the same day, travelling with a "Lord" to his home,
arriving a few hours after he was
expected there, without further mishap.
A number of Port Simpson, Skidegate and Alaska Indians are on Langara Island, ready to fish for spring
.salmon.
A bridge connecting Masset Town-
site with Delkatla is in course of
construction. W. 0. Gillette is the
contractor.
An appropriation of $5000 appears
in the supplementary estimates for
a wharf at the new townsite of
Queenstown on Masset Inlet.
A lock-up and quarters for the
provincial constable will be built on
Main Street, Masset Townsite, by
the Provincial Government.
Survey Parties.
Two large survey parties under
Messrs. A. DeB. Green and Gillisple
arrived on the steamer Prince Albert
One of the parties left for Jaloun
River.
The new wharf at Masset Town-
site has been completed, and was
formally opened on Victoria Day. \V
G. Gillette, the contractor, was complimented on the stability of the
structure.
.1. F. Macdonald, constable, connected with the Indian Department
returned from Aberdeen and took up
his duties recently at Naden Harbor.
Road (<> Meyer Lake.
A road connecting Masset Inlet I
with Meyer Lake is now in course of:
construction. Road parties are at |
work at Tow Hill and along the!
shores of  Masset  Inlet.
The Skidegate portion of Ihe road
building through the Indian Reserve
i-.nd at the Honna River is being carried on under Road Foreman Gordon and Davey. The connecting road,
between Queen Charlotte City and
Masset, will be open for traffic this
year.

coming would mean the expenditure
of $200,000.
Mr. Allison thought that the
Board of Trade should get busy at
once. They should takt off their
coats and get in and work to bring
industries here. He knew of men
coming here ready to spend money
who hud to leave because they could
get no waterfrontage. He thought
thai a committee should be appointed to do what ii could In tills matter.
Mr Nlckerson said thai he knew
Hun Porl Edward was offering the
company referred io a free site to
do business there. That harbor
would also suii (lie purposes of the
company. They should get busy and
bring them  here,  however.
Aid. Nation explained the situation
as he understood it with respect to
the waterfront. He pointed out that
when the division of the waterfront
was made between the province and
the Grand Trunk Pacific the latter
companj was supposed to have it;
rights to the foreshore from the Dominion Government and it was specified that Ihe province was to have
the same rights transferred to it that
the Grand Trunk Pacific had in this
foreshore. If the Grand Trunk Pacific had not the rights, then the
province could have no greater rights
than the company.
Mr. Smith said that within the
last few weeks there had been a
settlement arrived at between the
Provincial Government and the Dominion Government by which the
province secured its rights.
O. II. Nelson said that he thought
that there was soijie misunderstanding with respect to the rights that
were sought and referred to. The
Dominion authorities exercised the
right to approve of any undertaking
that might encroach upon navigable
waters. It made no difference who
proposed to put/ in a wharf or any
other undertaking, if it projected
into the water of the harbor it would
have to be formally approved by the
Government at Ottawa. The Provincial Government, as he understood
had made its application for approval of the undertakings which had
been erected on the foreshore In
front of Its property, and would undoubtedly have them approved. The
Grand Trunk Pacific had for some
reason not complied with this regulation, but he was led to believe
that the complete plans as prepared
by Mr. Bogue were being submitted
to the Government, and would undoubtedly be approved. The company
had contended that the works that
had so far been carried out on the
waterfront were only temporary and
they did not wish to submit plans
until they submitted the final ones.
Any works that might be put there
by any concern would have to be
formally approved. With respect to
the difficulty of getting waterfront
from the Grand Trunk Pacific, he
thought that it was due in large
measure to the fact that, the company
did not want to make any mistake at
this stage of the game. The company
had a very elaborate plan prepared
for the waterfront by Mr. Bogue,
and until the officials of the company had finally considered these
and decided exactly what was needed

TELEPHONE  CONNECTION.
Wnen the Grand Trunk Pacific
steamers Prince George ana Prince
Rupert dock at Prince Rupert, Vancouver and Victoria they are at once
connected with the Prince Rupert
system or with the B. C. Telephone
Company system by means of special
equipment attached to the private
branch exchange of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Company. A standard residence wall telephone is mounted in
the main cabin, from which heavy
insulated wire Is run in conduit to
outlets on either side of the boat,
just forward of the cabin. From the
outlets the connection Is made to Ihe
dock with fifteen-foot lengths of
flexible waterproof lighting cord, to
which is attached a plug similar to
tho ordinary switchboard plug, but
seven and three-quarter Inches long.
This plug is inserted in a metal jack
box mounted under the dock gangway and connecting with the P.B.X.
The jack box and plug are strongly constructed to guard against mechanical Injury and to withstand
the severe weather conditions to
which they are exposed. A No. 138
Western Electric jack is used, it being found after experiment that this
jack is most suitable for the purpose.
WEEKLY    SERVICE.
Commencing today the C.P.R. will
have a double service to Skagway,
making a weekly call here both ways.
This  service  will  be carried  out  by
i
the Princess May and the Princess
Sophia. The May leaves Vancouver
tonight for here, reaching port Monday. Returning she will reach here
Monday from Skagway, leaving again
the same morning. The Princess
Sophia will follow the same schedule,
alternating with the May. All summer there will, therefore, be a C.P.
R. steamer arrive on Monday from
the south and on the way south tbe
steamers will call Saturday forenoon.
The new service will be a welcome
one, especially in the matter of the
mail service, as it ensures a Monday
mall from the south.

for their own purposes they did not
want to alienate in any sense any of
the waterfront. This could not be
wondered at.
W. E. Williams thought that this
was an important matter. He agreed
that it would i -ike no difference
what was t be ..one, the approval
of the Dominion authorities would
have to be obtained where it interfered with navigable waters. He
moved that a request be made of the
Provincial Government to open its
waterfront under restrictions that
would ensure the immediate carrying
out of works on it, and that a committee go Into this matter with the
parties interested.
Mr. Nlckerson suggested that the
board take this matter up with the
Government and ascertain exactly
where they stood on the matter of
the waterfront.
Aid. Naden pointed out that this
matter of the opening up of the
Government waterfront was not a
new thing. It had been up when Sir
Richard McBride was here the last
time. Then the citizens' commit too
had not concrete applications to offer. It might be now with applications In hand that they nilghl be able
to huvo something done. There were
apparently three concrete propositions I hat were open to urge upon
the Premier,
The motion carried and the president of the board was authorized to
appoint a committee of five to deal
I with this question.
