Washington, Dec. 3.—The immediate withdrawal of Captain Boyed and
Captain Franz Von Papen, respectively naval and military attache to the
German Embassy here, has been requested by the State Department. In
making the formal announcement of
this, Secretary Lansing said the attache's had rendered themselves persona non-grata to the United States
by their improper activities in con
nection with naval and military matters.
The request was made three days
ago through the German Ambassador.

Thc sitting of F. 11, Cunningham
and D. N. Mclntyre as members of
the Fisheries Advisory Board from
British Columbia came to a conclusion last evening. The sitting has
been attended with a splendid promise of concessions in the interests of
lishing here. The two commissioners
will leave for the south this morning. The sitting last evening did
not conclude until near midnight.
The request made for the taking
off of the limit from the number of
lines used on a boat in trolling for
salmon received favorable consideration, and an assurance was given of
the granting of this. On other points
the visitors showed keen appreciation
of the arguments raised and evidenced a desire to work out some remedy.
(I. W. Nlckerson again presided.
More Canneries,
Tbe firsi request made was for
lie granting of additional cannery
licenses and the testing in the courts
of tho right of the province to refuse
it.
T. .1. Davidson called attention to
the fact that a small community of
Icelanders had located themselves on
the Lower Skoena. For two years
they had mail? a comfortable living

by fanning and lishing. Ir. was a
mistake to think that farming could
not be done on the Lower Skeena.
The conditions under the boat rating,
where Japanese were given the preference, made it unsuitable to white
men lishing there. Under conditions
as they were, they would not get a
white fishing population. He did not
think that it made much difference
whether there were new canneries or
not. The B. C. Packers contro'led
the whole thing anyway.
Wanted All Evidence.
Mr, Mclntyre stated that Mr. Cunningham and himself were not there
to bring out rebuttal evidence. They
were there to hear all representations
made to tlieni. He felt that the Advisory Board would not be likely to
lake a stand on a matter that was
a purely legal Question. The Provincial Government felt sure of fts contention on this point. The limitation of canneries was carried out to
protect the salmon. Ii had proved
such. The fact that the salmon were
not being depleted proved that it was
perhaps a wise course.
In reply to a question, Mr. Mclntyre said that the fisheries of the
Pacific coast were an asset of the
whole people of Canada. The fishermen and the people of the Pacific
province might have a first claim
upon them.
Mr, Nlckerson could not see thai
the increase in the number of canneries could have much effect upon
the fishing. The province, he felt,
might have the right to levy a tax.
he disputed the right of the Government lo limit the number of canneries.
Resident Inspector.
A resolution in favor of a resident
inspector here was next put forward.
Mr. Cunningham said that with respect to the appointment of a resident
inspector, that was a matter beyond
the power of the Advisory Board.
That was a matter that came under
the Minister directly.
With respect to further representation for the Advisory Board, the same
rule applied. It was not within the
power of the Board to make such a
recommendation.
Salmon Trolling.
Seeking Hallbul Grounds,
A recommendation was made that
tlie Government should furnish a
boat to go out from Prince Rupert
and seek for new halibut banks.
Capt. Rorvik thought one or two
prospecting boats would be of advantage to the fishing fleet. lie
thought the boats could prospect for
herring also. It cost too much money
for a private individual to carry this
out.
H. O. Roberts, of the San Juan
Company, said that all he could give
was hearsay evidence.    The American

TROUBLE TO SHIPPING.
Tlie frequency with which steamers
.from American ports on the Pacific
meet with trouble when goods intended for the Allied nations are on
board, would prompt, one would
think, a tendency to ship from a port
like Prince Rupert. There is no reason why goods for Russia should
not be loaded here, being brought
over tbe G. T. P. and put on steamers in this porl. The question of
guarding tbe transhipments here
would be very simple. The strictest
supervision could be maintained.
THE FISHERY DEMANDS.
The demands presented to .Messrs.
Cunningham and Mclntyre during the
past two days in connection with
the fishing regulation in this district
has awaked renewed interest in the
fish industry here. The representa-
tivi s of British Columbia on the Advisory Board have had a lot of very-
valuable information presented to
them during their stay. They have
fully appreciated it, and have intimated that they will grant some of
the requests al once..
LIBEL CASE WAS
DISPOSED OF
ACQUITTAL    GRANTED    HY   THE
JURY.  IN  ITS
VERDICT
Judge   (lave   Warning   To   The   Accused To Avoid
Lietters.
In the Assizes yesterday the case
against Mrs. Donald lor libel was disposed of. The case was dismissed,
bin the jury in a rider stated tbat
they believed the letter complained
of was written by the accused, although she did not intend it to be
libellous. The letter was one purported to have been written by Mrs.
Donald to a half sister of Mrs. Lam-
bie in England, in which the latter
was described in very elegant
terms.
The jury was selected as follows:
I. II. Barnsley, (foreman) C. B.
Peterson, P. E. Clapp, V. Ilasso-
fit-it. VV. Grant, I-'. R. C, Brown,
Phillip Lindsay, Weston Coynoy, II.
s. Nlckerson, T, .1. Davidson, Malcolm McLeod, .1. II. Moodle,
.Mi, Pet< is explained ihal tin- cai e
was a prii ai- pi osecul Ion, I le explained lini! the prosecution did not seek
an) damages or punishment All thai
Mi-. Lamble wanted was to prove
thai  Ihe statements made wore  un
true. The letter containing the alleged defamatory language was written July 30, 1912. For some time
the letter was not known of by the
Lambies. Later gossip got abroad
and finally in the year past, the letter
came to light. His client had asked
for the withdrawal of the statements
in the letter.
Mrs. Lambie testified that she had
lived here about 5 years. Mrs. Donald had come here about 4 years ago.
Witness had not known her before.
She was married to Mr. Donald at
the time. She knew Mrs. Donald's
writing and identified the letter as
written by Mrs. Donald. The letter
was written to Mr. and Mrs. Fitz-
patrick at Newcastle-on-Tyne. Mrs.
Fitzpatrick was a half sister of witness. The original letter was received
by witness from Mrs. Fitzpatrick in
May, 1015.
Witness had gone to Scotland on
a visit in 1912. She did not see the
people to whom the letter was writ-
ton, while in the old country. The allegations in the letter were absolutely
false.
Cross-examined, witness said accused lived two weeks with her. Witness had seen the writing of accused
when she was writing to friends:
Witness got the original letter
after Mr. Donald left here for Victoria. Mrs. Donald was in the south
seeing him before he left. When she
came back, witness demanded an
apology and the accused denied all.
Witness denied there had been a
general quarrel between Mr. Donald
and herself. Witness told Mr. Donald
the accused was "common, low and
vulgar."
John Lambie testified he did not
know Mrs. Donald until she came to
Prince Rupert. He believed the writing in the letter was that of Mrs.
Donald.
Cross-examined, witness said.
When he first saw .Mrs. Donald
after the letter came back, he told
-Mrs. Donald not to state that she-
was a sister of bis. He told her to
apologize, and Mrs. Donald said, "I'm
bloody English and to h— with the
Scotch." lie heard her say in reply
to Mrs. Lambie, that she could not
prove she wrote the letter.
.Mr. Williams argued that it was
not shown that the court had any
jurisdiction. It was not shown that
the letter was published. II it was
published it  was in England.
.Mr. Peters contended on this point,
that even if the letter never got to
its destination, it was a libel. He
argued that a letter being sent with
a view to its being read was regarded at law as publication at the place
of its origin.
His Lordship reserved his judgment on the point raised.
Addressing himself on the evidence,
Mr. Williams argued that there was
no evidence to show that there was
any movement lo vindicate character.
There was no evidence to show that
the report had been circulated, it
arose out of a family quarrel.
His Lordship, addressing the Jury,
said that this was a case that did
not seem fo be of great importance.
A woman's honor was her most sacred possession, and for that reason
a woman should seek to have any
aspersions that might be easi on her
wiped out. It was not the practice
io encourage proceedings of this kind,
where considerable expense was put
upon Ihe country in order to secure
that iv-hlch miciii be done through
a civil action,
The jury brought in a v< rdii I of
nol guilty, «lib a rider to ii to the
effecl thai the letter was written by
HE
the accused,  but not with  libellous
ir.tent.
His Lordship, in acquitting the accused, said he supposed the jury
thought the letter was only an ill-
advised one. "I want to say," lie
added, "don t write any more letters
of that kind. They are not proper.
Refrain from putting your hand to
a pen unless you can do some good."

the herring was concerned, had done
away with a part of the need for
this. He felt that licenses might be
wiped out altogether. Only a nominal
fee looking to the protection of the
fish might be charged. He thought
a general license covering all kinds
of fish should be the practice.
Mr. Cunningham said the clause
which looked nice on paper, opened
up a much larger question than was
Intended. It was absolutely against
the wishes of practically all the fish-
e-nien on the Fraser River. He would
like to hear from the 2,Boo fishermen
on the Fraser. There were abo it 1,-
300 white fishermen there. They
should he heard. He would go no
farther than to promise to place the
resolution before the Board and have
it discussed.
Was Unworkable.
Mr. Mclntyre pointed out that
under the system now prevailing, it
would not be practical to bring into
effect this system of allowing fishing
ol salmon In any river or stream In
the district.
Mr. Nickerson agreed with the
stand.
Mr. Davidson said that the Icelandic fishermen did not make money
on the Skeena last year, because the
most of the cannerymen would not
take king salmon. They wanted only
sockeye. They caught about 2,500
sockeye and 2,200 pink fish.
Robt. Johnson, of the Inverness
Cannery, told of one Icelander who
made well. He was a good fisherman.
Mr. Noble contended that the men
who worked did well.
Shell Fish Export.
A resolution was submitted recommending exportation of shell fish.
Mr. Cunningham said he was quite
ready to recommend the export trade.
Mr. Mclntyre was prepared to favor the allowing of the export of
clams also, if they were to be used
in a legitimate way for food. He
would not favor allowing them to be
taken over for being ground up for
chicken  food.
Mr. Nickerson thought i' something could he done to allow the
export of crabs earlier than the sitting of the Hoard, as the crab season
was now on.
Mr. .Mclntyre felt thai the strict
interpretation of the law would allow that now.
Gasoline Boats.
Aid. Montgomery put forward a
plea for the use of the gasoline
boats In fishing.
Air. Mclntyre said that with a limited number of boats on the Skeena it
was felt that the use of gasoline
boats would tend to upset the limits
to the injury of the fish.
Mr. Noble went into the matter
fully. He believed that the use of
gasoline would allow the men to get
to the fishing ground and from It
quicker. They would not catch any
more fish.
Mr. Davidson w-as afraid this might
make two classes of fishermen, and
work io the disadvantage of the class
that used the sails and oars. It would
be creating a privileged class.
Win. Selig loll il was right to give
the fishermen gas boats. The men
took their lives In their hands when
they Weill out. into Hecate Straits,
on the Nuns River it was the same.
Mr. Noble said In 1911 there wen
some gas boats on the skoena, and he
did not. believe more fish were caught
by theiu.

Air. Cunningham said that ii gas
boats were allowed on the Skeena
they would have to be allowed in all
other inlets. The effect of the escape
from gasoline boats might be injurious on the inlets, that were not
tidal. They would get this Information.
Preservation <n Salmon.
Mr. Nob'e urged the protection of
the salmon. A great deal was being
done by the Government, but the
streams In the interior should he
lookci after greater. The Hocstall
was the best salmon stream. The Gov.
eminent was having it cleared out
now. He had lost in part, his faith
in artificial propogatlon. He believed
in keeping the natural spawning
grounds clear.
Mr. Cunningham agreed with this
contention. The Government had an
engineer giving his whole attention
to the clearing of obstructions. Everything was being done that could be
done.
Trout  Destruction.
Wm. Sibbald thought something
should be done to do away with the
trout in the river, as it was Ihe
greatest enemy of the salmon.
Mr. Noble backed this up, If the
Government knew of the distruction
caused by the trout anil Ihe ducks
this would he overcome. He had
seen the destruction of these.
Mr, Mclntyre said this was a vexed
question. They were aware of the
damage done by the trout and the
ducks. They were met by objections
from the residents of the districts
in the interior when they tried to
destroy trout. These settlers got no
benefit from the salmon. They did
get it from trout and ducks.
It was decided to make a recommendation dealing with the trout
trouble.
Mr. Morrow's I'leu.
G. \V. Morrow expressed the appreciation of the citizens in discussing
these questions with Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Mclntyre. The city appreciated what had been done in the
way of permitting American boats to
come in. They had had the hearty
support of Mr. Cunningham and Mr.
Mclntyre. For some time this was
to be the industry that the city depended upon.
Mr. Morrow said that when Prof.
Pierce and Prof. Starr-Jordan recommended the regulations governing
salmon lishing they looked to the preservation of the fish alone. The limiting of the number of canneries and
the boat rating had created the
greatest monopoly. Before the war
was ended .lack was going to be as
good as his master. As many fishermen went out In defence of their
country as there were cannerymen.
The canneries were built as a business propostion. The owners were
not guaranteed these privileges they
held. The Dominion Government had
agreed to grant another cannery on
the Skeena, while the Provincial
Government would not. This bore
out the stand taken here.
If the cannery business was to continue as it was, it was not worth anything to this city. There was no
political party responsible alone for
this. As citizens they must stand
together.
They could never have the best
'•lass of while fishermen come to the
coast to fish In those rivers if the
conditions were to prevail. Fishermen should have better prices for
their fish. All that was wanted by
residents of the north was a fair deal
as compared with the south.
He did noi pretend to have tho
remedy. He asked Mr. Cunningham
and  Mr.  Mclntyre to loud  their aid
Hying to gel some remedy.
The .Mayor expressed his appreciation of the visit.
Aid. Montgomery's Praise,
Aid. Montgomery felt that the visitors had at heart as great an interest
in the fishing Industry and the
country us he had. If governments
moved slowly it was because the*
people behind Ihem moved slowly.
They intended, here, to push for re-«
cognition for their rights. The monopoly of the cannerymen should be
lone away with as soon as possible,

litical bed as there was in British
Columbia, but there was no politics
when It came to a question of fish.
Commissioner's Reply.
Mr. Cunningham said he enjoyed
his visit to Prince Rupert. It had
taken a great deal of hard work to
induce the Government to grant the
concessions to American fishing boats.
During the past three years this northern country had developed most remarkably. Prince Rupert was to be-
ome a great centre. Th» Government
had recognized the necessity for introducing white fishermen. These
were increasing. On the Advisory
Board they represented every interest. They did not try to cater to any
faction. He knew no politics. He had
been thirty-three years in the department, and had yet to go to his first
political meeting.
Mr. Mclntyre promised to give the
resolutions their most careful
thought.
Votes of thanks all round were
carried before the meeting closed.

Respectfully submitted,
JAMES H. THOMPSON,
Foreman.
His Lordship in receiving the presentment pointed out that there was
jvery reason for residents of the city
to be optimistic. When the war was
over he felt that there would be
rich returns. The possibilities of
British Columbia were so enormous
that with the return of peace there
would be prosperous conditions. They
had no reason for complaint as a
British community, but should congratulate themselves on the stand
taken. As time went on they would
have to make still further contributions.
He said he would have the proper
bodies communicated with relative
to the items mentioned in the presentment.
A Daughter.
From the south it is learned that
a daughter has been born to Mr. and
Mrs. Arthur Bailey, of the Inverness
Cannery.

By persistent experimenting I have now evolved a system of heating two rooms in a residence with your kitchen range, besides sup-
9 plying hot water for domestic uses, regardless of the position of
the 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.
Now in use and on exhibition at my shop, 130 Second Avonue.
