FINANCE COMMITTEE
ON VARIOUS REQUESTS
Schools Only Will Take Precedence
Over the Woodworth Lake Power
Proposition It Is Stated—Other Proposals for Aid Will Receive Attention Later-Publicity Not Decided
At the meeting of the city council last evening there was a good
record made in the matter of expeditious transaction of business. The
meeting was all over in about thirty-
five minutes, which is certainly
keeping up the record that was established last year very well. The
principal business that came up was
that of the report that was presented by the finance committee. This
appeared to be a preliminary report
dealing with the question of the estimates and giving a warning to the
various bodies that have been seeking assistance this year what there
Is to expect along these lines.
A report was presented along the
lines of the request that was made
by the school board relative to the
expenditure that would be needed
this year for the carrying on of the
schools. The finance committee reported in favor of the grant of the
♦ 22,585 from the taxation of the
year which iris presumed is independent of the estimated grant that
comes from the Government at Victoria and which will bring the total
expenditure for the schools up to
about $30,000 as was requested by
the board to cover all contingencies.
Another report that was made, by
the finance committee was along the
lines ot tne representation? that had
been made so far for assistance in
the various civic undertakings outside of the general expenditure oi
the city council. -These were placed
as follows: Schools. $22,585; publicity proposal of Board of Trade,:
$10,000; exhibition purposes, $6000;
hospital  requirements,   $10,000.
The committee reported that in its
opinion only the schools should take
precedence over the Woodworth!
Lake hydro-electric proposition. It'
was recommend that in the striking
of the estimates that the 3chool request should be granted in Its entirety. In the matter of aid to the
hospital there would be need * of
meeting the requirements up to the
limit given. On the question of the
publicity scheme, however, it was
represented that the board should
first ascertain what the C. P. R., the
Union Steamship Company, the Northern Steamship Company, the G. T.
P. Development Company, and many
other orgaizations of a local character or which were interested in this
matter of publicity should be prepared to do. When this was ascertained
then the council would be prepared
to proceed along sane lines and decide what could be done to jointly
aid in this undertaking for giving
the city outside advertising.

QUESTION OF
TAX ARREARS
CITV       SOLICITOR       REPORTER
UPON SITUATION  RAISED
BY LETTER.
Tho Swanson  Ray Pulp & Paper Co.
Will  Have to Pay  What
Is Due.
At the meeting of the city council
last week a letter was read from H.
G. Helgersou relative to the taxation that was claimed from the
Swanson Bay Pulp & Lumber Co.,
which was represented by Mr. Hel-
gerson. It was pointed out in the
letter that tbe taxes that were in
arrears covered about three years
and were not known to the agent.
The city solicitor reported upon the
sltuatl"ii as It was presented last
evening at the council.
Ills report went to show that it
was practically impossible to do anything in the matter now. The ordinary courts of revision had been
held each year and there was no
machinery for readjusting the matter now. The sum was placed at
$3,515.41. This covered arrears for
the years 1911, 1012 and 1013.
In one instance only was there
any mistake made and that was with
respect to the wharf property. Here
during the time that Williams and
Malison had been the agents, which
agency had ended only a few months
ago, there had been a wrong charge
made on this part of the property
owing to the fact that the charges
were made for three times the space
that was held by the company. By
a mistake this still stood at the
original amount. It should be reduced to the amount that was agreed
with Williams and Manson when

WHITE'S PLANS TO FLY
ACROSS THE ATLANTIC
Mr. Grahame White doesn't believe that the Atlantic Ocean will be
flown this year, but he has an idea that such a thing is no longer visionary, and he is planning to attempt it in the summer of 1915. "I have
already perfected a scheme," he says, "to build the necessary aeroplane,
but I decline to discuss its construction, size or proposed horse power.
I hope to use a British engine, and the only thing that so far has deterred me from making the attempt was the lack of support. The trip
trip would take from forty to sixty hours and could be made without
alighting for petrol. I expect to carry from three to six persons. The
starting place is a moot point, but the landing should be made in New-
York."
Only a short time ago, Mr. White declared the feat virtually impossible at the present stage of aviation. He also was quoted as saying recently that it would take a triple hydroplane with four 250 horse-power
engines, so that if one or even two stopped the flight would continue.
TRADE -OF CITY
ADVANCING RAPIDLY
Customs Returns for Month of January Indicates That This Port Is
Making Remarkable Progress—Almost Six Times the Receipts That
There Were Collected a Year Ago.
A. W. SMITHERS
ADVISES TRIP HERE
The Chairman of the G.T.P. In Speech
Gives Advice Relative to the G.T.P,
Route---Official Pays Compliment
to Canada as Field For Investment
The cable has told you doubtless
of the great banquet held at Wester-
ham, birthplace of General Wolfe.
It was a great event both from the
standpoint of the man who wants to
honor the Empire's heroes, and from
that of the man who wishes to contrast the Canada of that day with
the Canada of today. There were
many good speeches made at that
banquet, but the general verdict is
that one of the best was made by
Mr. Alfred W. Smithers, the chairman of the board of the Grand
Trunk Railway system, who drew a
striking picture of the progress
which has been made, and which is
going to he made, by the great Dominion  of  Canada.
Mr. Smithers said in part;
I feel it is a great privilege to
have been asked to take a part in
honoring the memory of Wolfe. A
citizen of the British Em; ire would
be dull Indeed who did not :'• a!
thrill go through him when stai
in Wolfe's native town, hearing witness to his memory, and within a
stone's throw of the house in which
he was horn. I feel that thrill tonight, as I have felt it every time
when I Imve stood on the Plains of
Abraham and realised the scene of
his great victory and heroic death.
What a wonderful thing for our
country   that, at   that   critical   time
In every avenue by which the
pulse of the commercial life of
Prince Rupert and of this great
country that is tributary to tlie port
can be judged there is a most vigorous life manifested. The customs returns is one of the surest methods
of testing the development in trade
and this method of test for the
month of January just passed is most
gratifying.
While the receipts at the local office for January, 1913, were $6,566,-
27, they jumped in January, 1914,
to nearly six times that amount,
reaching the sum of $37,421.59.
This increase is certainly most gratifying. It is indicative of the tremendous work of opening up a new
country like this as well as the increased demands for the general
business of the territory that is
represented  by this port.
It may be urged that the customs
returns for this month that has just
passed were largely increased by the
arrival in port of considerable steel
for the drydock. While this did have
its effect in no small measure, yet
the returns show also that there has
been a large increase in the general
business. At the same time the steel
shipments indicate an investment
here on the part of the Grand Trunk
Pacific which is to he permanent
and which will assist in no small
way to stimulate still further trade
increases.
From now on  these shipments of
new  material  to    be    used    in  the
permanent works in the city and thel
district   will    be    ever    increasing.
There   will   also   be   arriving   heavy j
machinery  and   equipment   for    thei
different.  Industrial enterprises  thai
are to  be built  up  here,   With  thisl
will  come  increased  returns  In   the
customs and a corresponding lucres ie
in  the  commercial   business  that is|
being done in this part.  It is Prince
Huron's growing time.

in our history we should have had
such a prime minister as the first,
great Pitt, and that he should have
had the courage and the insight to
appoint and wholly trust the supreme
command of the expedition to Quebec to the young general whose
memory we are celebrating touight-
What, an opinion must Pitt have had
of Wolfe's skill, his devotion, his
courage, and his glorious s'pirit. But
surely the great minister must have
had anxious doubts as to whether
the frail and often suffering body
would stand the wear and tear of
carrying out the tremendous task re-
quired of the young genera.. The
great, minister showed his sagacity
and his faith, tind the great, soldier

THE   FISHERIES.
The organ of the Liberal party In
the city has now turned its attention
to the question of the fisheries of
this coast. To do this requires, we
would think, a good deal of trepidation. If ever a question was
bungled by a government it was the
fishery question on this coast by the
Liberal government at Ottawa. We
would be almost inclined to think
that tbe government at Ottawa al
thai, time had been trained as statesmen In a similar school to that which
il is now said by the local organ is
conducted In ibis province at ilie annual conventions of the Liberal
party.
When the Conservative party came
Into power it found the whole of tbe
fisheries of this northern coast In
the hands of the Japanese. One of
the first acts of the parly was to
right this stale of affairs, it is true
that Hie matter <;annot be completely reormed al once. It required
some time, bul the Governmenl is
taking the means to right the injustice and the indignity that has
been allowed to develop under Liberal rule. The time is coming when
under the Conservative Government
there will be no more Japanese engaged in Hie fishing industry. Under
the Liberal rule there are not wanting evidences thai the naturalization
papers for tho .hips under which
they obtained their licenses were
held In bulk, and issued to any Jap
that, was convenient, the Oriental
taking the name of the particular
paper. The Conservative Government
Is going to wipe out these Orientals
in the fishing trade on ihis coast,
and while tills is being brought
about pains are to be taken to see I
thai only the right man gets the
licenses thai are issued. For ihis
purpose a system of photographing
the Japam se Is to be followed and
the photo al taehed to the naturalization paper.
The Liberal party may lie good al

with the world. When occasion demanded it ilie missionary, as was
often shown in practice, could "cast
out devils" by physical force when it
was round Impossilbe to "convert
siniUTs." Ho was, iu spite of all, beloved by everyone. He was a physical glanl with u Btrength that made
him absolutely self-reliant ai all
times. II" whs a man well adapted
lor the special work that he had to
carry om here on this coast. There
were none that he could not meci
with credit to himself. When rebuke
was necessary it was given as from
a father, when encouragement was
necessary it was with the sympathy
of a woman. In the death of the
veteran missionary the church loses
an eminently strong man for the
task  be had  to  perform.

■fcli ii is almost impossible lo say
anything new. Its climate, its prairies with their wonderful fertility,
its forests, its lakes and mountains,
and its mines have been so often
described, still, there are a few
broad facts worth dwelling upon for
a moment—calculated to bring mil
and emphasise the results of Wolfe's
achievement.
When Wolf,, look Quebec in 1759
the population'of England was probably aim . ii,.".iiii.oiMi, or 1,500,000
less than iho population of Cai adn
today, 'flu. population of Canada ,n
Hie death of Wolf,, must have been
barring [he red mini only a few
thousands. Today ii |E nearly, if not
quite, 8,000,00(1, and the population
of tin. United Kingdom, which was
approaching 7,000,000 in 1759, is
i.nlay 45,000,000.
So you see mother ami child have
grown wonderfully, and arc slill
growing, and if they are true to the
traditions of their race, and continue
io pursue a broad and enlightened
policy, will so on growing and prospering. For consider, all I he ]iros-
perlty of Canada, which has had
such a marvellous growth during the
la.sl ten years, has all been derived
from a mere fringe of the land callable of cultivation, and there are
millions of acres untouched and
capable of producing the finest
wheat, oals, barley, and fruits with
wMcli to support, many limes over,
the population existing today. The
great results to date have been
achieved by the work and skill and
enterprise of the Canadian people,
and by the use of capital borrowed
cbieriy from the .Motherland.
Canada Under Recent Strain.
There are some people today in
this country, who in somewhat parrot fashion, are taking up the cry
I hat Canada is going too last. I do
not think they realise thai Canada
has been going through a niosi difficult time for at least eighteen
months, and that the crisis they talk
of is to a great extent pass..!. In the
full tide of a great development,
Canada was caught like a snip carrying full sail in the storm of scarce
and dear maney, caused by war ami
apprehension of larger and wider
war in Europe, and 1 say unhesitatingly she has stood the strain magnificently. 1 know of no co mtry
suddenly confronted by tremendous
difficulties which has ever come
through a difficult  period so well.
Another cause of dear mefney ha.;
been that new countries of the world
have been developed during the'last
ten or fifteen years as never before,
and  this  hassled  io an  Immense do-
velopment of trade, and  consensu
ly io an Immense demand  foi   capital,     li   may  be  necessary    - r    ! ie
whole  world   to  go    slow ei.    for a
while till capital again accumulates,
bin   under   modern     condition
wiih   a   mote  peaceful
will  soon  happen,  an.I
deni   thai   no  country   will      ■': i

POLITICAL UNREST
IN THE OLD LAND
One of the  Besl   Loved  .Missionaries
in  .North Called to His
Reward.
A wireless message received from j
the Queen Charlotte Islands on Sunday evening conveyed the sad intelligence to his friends here that Rev.
William Hogan has passed away after a rather short illness. Well
known all along the coast, "Father"
Hogan, as be was more generally
called, was a general favorite. He
leaves a wife and one daughter.
Rev. William Hogan was born in
Ireland over sixty years ago. lie
was educated in Trinity College,
Dublin, and then became; a schoolmaster in that city. Stirred to the
call of missionary work, he arrived
at Metlakatla in June, 1893, and
was ordained deacon In the same
year, and made a priest of the
Church of England the following
year  by   Bishop' Ridley.
For five years he taught school
at .Metlakatla and helped in other
church work, especially at Inverness
Cannery during the summer time.
In 18118 he went to Masset, and together with Mrs. Hogan, who often
nursed the sick, did valuable work
among the Haldas. In August, 1899,
he went to Port Simpson, where he
took charge of the work amongst
the white people. For over ten years
he labored there and through his
warm-hearted Irish hospitality won
hosts of friends, now scattered over
the world.
In December, I;>u9, be returned
to Masset and took up the work
among the settlers in the northern
half of Graham Island, as well as
looking after the Haidas on the Indian Reserve. He took the keenest
interest in the building of a new-
church in the new town and used to
row his boat Sunday after Sunday
to fill bis appointments.

CHIEF     PARLIAMENTARY      COR-
RESPONDENT OF   UNIONISTS
GIVES UP POSITION.
General Trouble Brewing in Connection With the Political
l'ui-ties.
' London, Feb. 2.—A. P. Nicholson, for many years chief parliamentary correspondent of the Union-
j 1st  party,  claims  to  have given  up
I his position because he is unable to
accept certain methods which members of that party in parliament are
adopting. These include the plans
for calling In a campaign agaiusi
the Government.
Mr. Nicholson bus gone temporarily to the Daily News. Writing on the
Unionist plans, this may likely stir
up considerable unrest in political
circles. The Unionists, according to
him, have circulated agent? through-
j out. the country io be ready for a
general election  in  May.   It  Is  inti-
I mated here that, it is the intention of
the Unionists to bring about a dissolution by creating disorders in the
House or in some other way.
Parliament will meet next week
for its third session. Under the Parliamentary Act if the session is
brought to an untimely end the two
years work which the Liberal party
has spent so much time on, such as
the Home Rule Bill, which the
Lords refused to assent, to. will be
fruitless. If the jresent parliament
is dissolved during the course of the
forthcoming session the Government
even if returned to power will have
to begin in Parliament and proceed
all over again.
