ENGINEERING EXPERTS
ARE NOW IN THE CITY
Following the Visit of the Traffic Heads of the
G. T. P. the Construction and Location Officials Are Now In Prince Rupert-
Chief Engineer Kelliher and the
Government Head, Colling-
wood Schreiber Arrived Yesterday
There is an invasion of the city by
engineers now, following the visit of
the Grand Trunk Pacific heads a few
weeks ago. In tbe natural sequence
the engineering department would be
the first to arrive, as they are the
men upon whom devolves the duty
of locating the line and constructing
It. They are the pioneers and only
after their work is completed does
scope a'ppear for the traffic managers. The Prince Rupert yesterday
brought the chief engineer of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, B. B. Kelliher,
and the Dominion Government engineer, Collingwood Schreiber, who,
for a period extending beyond the
average life of a man, has been filling the position he occupies.
Mr. Schreiber is 82 years of age,
but he looks no older than he did
years ago. He, moreover, shows
little or no loss of vigor. Among tbe
railway officials throughout Canada,
Mr. Schreiber is held in the highest
respect. Hte is exacting in his Inspection, but is never unreasonable.. In
consequence he numbers all of them
as his friends.
Interviewed here, he expressed
general satisfaction with the way the
work was proceeding on the Grand
Trunk Pacific. He, however, showed
a disposition to want to see the work
finished and the line in operation as
a transcontinental one.
In this view he was seconded by
Mr. Kelliher and C. C. VanArsdol,
who expressed their desire to see the
work finished. There is evidently a
growing desire with all concerned,
as the-days for completion approach,
a feverish haste being manifested to
get the road In running order.
Mr. Kelliher says the work is
progressing very satisfactorily. He
will, when he visits the line now
completed from this end, proceed
along the route to the end of steel
from the eastward and continue his
inspection there. It is doubtful whether Mr. Schreiber will find it convenient to spare the time to make
the trip over the route where the
work is not completed. He will return
and go south by the steamer.
From the other end of the line the
work is proceeding well. Steel has
been laid about fifty miles this side
of Tete Jaune Cache and grading is
in progress at various points far beyond that point. Mr. VanArsdol,
speaking of the bridge that is to be
constructed across the river near
Fort George and .which it has been
reported would be a very heavy undertaking, says that there is nothing
to delay work there. The bridge is
not a difficult one to build. It can,
in fact, be constructed If there Is
necessity for it In a very short time.
The    bridge    will    not hold up the
work for any time it is evident.
Mr. Kelliher says that his visit is
one of inspection. He had nothing
special In view In connection with his
trip. The chief engineer, howeven,
appeared to be more than usually interested In finding out how Prince
Rupert was progressing. He manifested the deepest interest in the place
and was pleased to see how it was
progressing. The completion of the
railway, he felt, would see a wonderful awakening and Prince Rupert
would be a surprise.
Accompanying the engineers north
was V. G. Bogue, the harbor expert,
who is charged with the preparation
of the plans for the port. He has
come here in connection with his
work in that direction and will spend
a few days here carrying out plans
for the making of the great harbor
that he has in view for Prince Rupert.

FORESTRY   CONVENTION.
Canadian Gathering Will Be Held in
Winnipeg This Year—Programme
Now  Being Prepared.
Ottawa, May 14.—The Canadian
Forestry Association have announced
July 7-9 as tbe date of the Dominion
Forestry Convention to be held in
Winnipeg. Arrangements are under
way for what promises to be one of
the most representative and successful gatherings ever held in the
West. Delegates from all parts of
Canada, and from many of the States
of the Union, will convene in the Industrial Bureau Hall as guests of the
Provincial Government and the City
of Winnipeg, to discuss the problems
of the forest resources of Canada.
The farmer's plantation, windbreaks and other phases of prairie
tree growing will naturally occupy a
large share of the attention of the
delegates, but the protection of forests from fire, and kindred topics,
will also be taken up.
Tbe programme which Is now in
preparation, will be a most interesting one, and of this and of the convention railway rates to delegates,
particulars may be had from James
Lawler, Canadian Building, Ottawa.

Washington, May 14.—Following the despatch Of a British
cruiser from Kingston, Jamaica, the Government of Guatemala hat)
agreed to a settlement of the long-standing British claim, according to private despatches received here. What has been the subject

ml6 CHANCE OF THE SUMMER.   .
J. D. McNlven, fair wage officer of
the Dominion Government, with
headquarters in Vancouver, has been
investigating the circumstances connected with tbe strike called In the
mines of Nanaimo district by the
United Mine Workers. Mr. McNiven
interviewed the officials of the
union, who informed him they did
not want an enquiry held under the
terms and conditions of the Industrial Disputes Act, as the present dispute would have to be settled between the mine operators and the
United Mine Workers of America.
Employees, not members of the
union, to the number of 500 have requested" Mr. McNiven that an enquiry be held by him at once, and
he will in all probability accede to
the latter request.
A committee representing the men
outside the union has Issued a statement which they desire to be given
the fullest publicity, as follows:
"In September, 1911, an agreement between the Western Fuel
Company and their employees, representing in the neighborhood of
-1500 men, was duly entered into and
signed by the said company on the
one side and the said employees,
represented by a committee of five,
on the other. Previous to this agreement being entered into, a holiday
was declared and a mass meeting
called for the purpose of appointing
a committee, said committee to be
known as the 'agreement committee,'
whose duties were:
"First, to confer with the operators and draft an agreement satisfactory to all concerned. This first
duty they duly performed and in
due time they submitted their report
and proposed agreement to the men.
The report of the committee was accepted and the form of agreement
balloted upon and adopted by a unanimous vote. The committee then had
the agreement permanently drawn
up and signed by the company's representatives and themselves as representatives of the men. That committee's remaining duties are to see
that the conditions laid down In the
agreement are carried out to the satisfaction of all concerned.
"The same conditions exist between the Pacific CoaBt Coal Company and the Vancouver-Nanaimo
Coal Company and their respective
employees, the agreements being
identical with the exception thnt they
expire on different dates.
"Now In the face of this we have
a strike declared by an organization
which on February 11, 1913, had
only 200 members In this district In
good standing. tThis Information is
from the secretary of the Niinalino
Local, U.M.W., Mr. Arthur Jordan.)
"This strike was declared by
Robert Foster, district president, on
Instruction given him by Frank Far-
rington, representing the International Union U.M.W. of A., who forwarded said instruction, using the
authority of President John P.
White. These instructions were forwarded from Seattle under date of
April 30, and the strike was declared on the following day, May 1,
a strike planned for us by a foreign
organization and in a foreign country and forced upon us without our
i'cing given a voice in the matter.
"We appealed for a voice in the
matter at their meeting on the evening of May 1, and wha.t did we get?
We were abused and Insulted from

MINISTER IS TO
VISIT THE COAST
HON. ROBERT ROGERS TO COME
TO   BRITISH   COLUMBIA   AS
SOON    AS    SESSION    AT
OTTAWA   CLOSES.
He Wishes to Acquaint    Himself at
First Hand With the Possibilities
of This Part of the
Dominion.
"Hon."" Robert Rogers, minister of
public works, hopes to be able In a
few weeks, immediately after the
close of the present session of the
Commons, to visit British Columbia
points, with the object of acquainting himself first hand with the port
requirements on the coast in view
of the imminent opening of the Panama Canal.
In an Interview with Mr. Rogers
at Ottawa,.he said in this connection:
"The Government fully appreciates
the requirements of Western Canada, and especially do we appreciate
this in connection with the very evident and immediate necessity for the
development of our harbors at Pacific ports, in order that they may
be able to take care of the rapid expansion of trade in view of the early
completion of the Panama Canal and
the increased probabilities for extended trade with our Pacific ports.
Some delay has occurred in order
that full consideration might be given
with a view of making, sure that
when final plans are approved they
will be such as will undoubtedly
meet the requirements of all possible
future developments for years to
come."
in our own defence; treatment that
any man, if a man, must resent.
"In spite of all this abuse and intimidation we still maintained that
we were bound to live up to our
agreement and continue to work under the conditions of the said agreement until the time (two years) had
expired, but rather than go to work
in an unsettled, unsatisfactory manner we resolved to place the matter
before the men and give them the
opportunity to ballot as to whether
we should abide by our agreement
and go to work or not. We engaged a suitable place and procured
the necessary ballots, and what was
the result? We were again subjected
to insults and abuse, so much so that
hundreds who would bave voted had
they been allowed to do so peaceably,
were so intimidated that they dare
not go near the polling station. Consequently the ballot was small, the
vote standing 432 for work and 44
against.
"In view of the small ballot    we
agreed to refrain from work and nd-
vised  those who    voted    to govern
themselves accordingly, and  here Is
where we stand.  We refuse to admit
that we are willingly on strike and
while wo are In favor of a union we1
absolutely refuse io become    members of an organization whose tactics
lire so disgraceful. The U.M.W. of A.
has    foncd  us Into u strike,    thus!
violating the law as il  Is laid down i
in the Industrial Disputes Act, which
reads thus:     'Every    employee  who
goes on strike contrary to the provisions of this act Is liable to a penalty  of    ten dollars  for each  day    or j
part of a day  that the strike lasts.'
"We do not try lo defend everything that is embodied In our agreements with the companies, but we
maintain that these agreements were
entered into in good faith, and with
our eyes open, and should be kept
sacred and inviolate til! the term of
agreement expires. And in the
meantime if the mine workers, not
only of Nanaimo and district, but of
the whole of Vancouver Island,
would unite themselves they should
be able to satisfactorily attend to
their own business without the need
of foreign interference of which we
have had plenty r>t sad and costly experiences In the past."
HALIBUT CATCHES
ARE EVER INCREASING
George E. Foster Brought In 175,000 Pounds of
Fish Yesterday to the Canadian Fish & Cold
Storage Company's Dock-The Work
of Unloading and Taking Care of
the Catch Will Occupy the
Staff at the Work
All of Today
With the largest catch on record
in these waters, the steam trawler
George E. Foster, of the Canadian
Fish and Cold Storage Company,
reached port yesterday with 175,000
pounds of halibut. Coming so close on
the large influx of the past few days,
the steamer remained alongside the
wharf with her enormous cargo
aboard until today, when it will be
taken out of the storage quarters and
packed away for future consumption.
The continued success that is attending the vessels engaged in the
trade here is an assurance that the
port of Prince Rupert is the proper
location at which to centralize the
fish trade. This is the largest catch
that has been made by an individual
fishing boat. The steamer used only
eleven dories, so that the average
taken shows that there was little
time lost in taking In fish while on
the banks.
The other vessels of the fleet at
the Cold Storage and at the other
local packing houses left last night
for the bankB and will begin the taking of fish.
The success which is attending the
operations is most gratifying to all
engaged in the business. All that is
now needed is the completion of the
railway line to allow of the shipping
of trainloads of fish to the eastern
markets.

WESTERN FRUIT MARKET.
Where the Dciiiitnd Exists for the Various Lines That Are Produced in
Canada.
Fruit growers in Ontario, British
Columbia and Nova Scotia are all
alike interested in the capacity of
the market in Western Canada for
apples, and from time to time estimates of varying degrees of accuracy
have been made of the total quantity
received annually by the provinces
of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Last summer the Dominion
fruit inspectors assigned lo these
three provinces were instructed to
take notes as to the quantity of
apples shipped Into their several districts and make a report to this of- j
flee at the end of the season. These!
reports have been compiled with tho
following results: The total quantity
of apples marketed in these provinces tor the season of 1912 was approximately 495,000 barrels, of
which Ontario supplied 288,000,
British Columbia 76,000, Nova Scotia
is.nun, and the United States 164,-
ooo.
in addition i" tho prairie provinces
there Is a large and growing market
In New Ontario which will afford ani
outlet  for Increasing quantities    of;
Ontario apples, if we consider    the
present   population  of  Fort   William,!

tho quantity of apples marketed In |
this section  during  the  pusi  season.
The  proportion  of  the  above     total]
supplied by the United Slates would
probably nol exceed 10 per cent.
This week this branch Is shipping
from the poll of St. John, N.B.,
about 1,500 boxes of apples for„the
Canadian exhibit at the International
Exhibition, Ghent, Belgium. The
apples will be stored in London and
shipped across to Ghent us required.

EARLY COMPLETION.
While there is an evident desire
on the part of the officials of the
Grand Trunk Pacific not to build up
too strong hopes in the breasts of
the citizens of Prince Rupert with respect to the early completion of the
railway, it Is also evident that they
see every prospect that the line will
not be long delayed now. Everything
is going forward well. The whole of
the remaining section between the
ends of steel is now under way, having been graded and made ready for
the rails. If nothing out of the
ordinary happens the citizens have
very few months to wait for the
through trains.
E.     J.     HAUGHTON,     WHO     HAS
CHARGE   OF    GOVERNMENT
SERVICE ON COAST, IS IN
TBE CITY.
He Has Conic on n Tour of Inspection
of the   Service—His Stay   Here
Will  Be Only a Short One
ut This Time.
PROTECT THE IMMIGRANT.
The steps taken by the Hon. T. W.
Crothers, acting minister of the interior, for the better protection of
the immigrant, cannot but meet with
general approval. Hitherto unscrupulous employment agencies have
waxed fat on the fees extracted from
immigrants ignorant of the conditions of the country, and, in many
cases, of the language. The regulations which have been adopted in
council will enable the immigration
department to handle employment
sharks with a firmer hand. Every
employment agent must now display
on his premises a license from the
superintendent of immigration and
keep a register of all immigrants
placed, with particulars of wages
promised, work to be performed,
price for board, etc., and this
register is to be open at all times to
the inspection of immigration officials. The agent must not send immigrants to a position without having
the written order of the prospective
employer, giving full particulars. No
order shall be filled if over two
months old and all orders shall be
open to inspection. No licensed employment agent shall charge more
than one dollar, and the penalty on
summary conviction for violation
shall be a fine not exceeding $100,
and in default imprisonment for not
more than three months. These regulations were highly necessary to protect the fair name of the country.
Nothing is more apt to dissatisfy and
disgruntle the new arrival than to be
roiied in and bled by the waiting employment crook, who is wily enough
to evade criminal prosecution for
false pretences and against whom
civil process is waste of money.
 o	
Meteorological Report.
Among those who reached the city
yesterday by the Prince Rupert was
E. .1. Haughton, superintendent of
wireless stations on this coast. He Is
here on a tour of inspection and today is at the station on Digby Island.
He expects to leave for the south by
Ihe Prince Rupert on Friday morning.
Mr. llaiigliton, who makes his
headquarters in Victoria, served in
the regular telegraph service for
years before the Introduction of the
wireless system. He transferred to
the new system with the opening of
the stations on this coast by the
Dominion Government and was finally given the post of superintendent
on the Pacific. In this capacity the
Government stations all come under
his supervision.
Mr. Haughton is an enthusiast in
the matter of the wirelessand in no
ninall measure it is due to his management that the system on this
coast has been brought to the condition where It is to be relied upon at
all times. The wireless has, therefore,
been readily called into requisition
when any wire trouble exists, and
with good results in every case. The
charge, moreover, is the same as by
the land wire.
The new station at Alert Bay, Mr.
Haughton says, is a model in every
respect. It has all the latest improvements and is very satisfactory in its
work.

CALIFORNIA'S       PRESERVATION,

SPORTS
BAYLEY HONORED.
Joe Bayley, lightweight champion
pugilist of Canada, was honored by
his friends and former fellow workmen, the members of the Shinglers'
Union of Victoria, the ceremony taking the form of a presentation, says
the Victoria Colonist.
Early in the evening Bayley was
hailed into the midst of a gathering
of the shinglers, whose mysteriously-
guarded actions bespoke an undertaking of no mean importance. Being
entirely in the dark as to the nature
I of the affair, Bayley was naturally
much surprised when one of the older members of the union, with nervous suddenness, burst forth into an
eloquent panegyric, of which Bayley
was the subject. The speaker hoped
that Bayley would maintain the high
reputation he had already gained in
the ring and would some time in the
near future become the champion of
the world. Closing his speech with
the expression on behalf of the union
of an earnest hope that Bayley would
be successful in his next contest with
Ernffe Barrieau, of Vancouver, the
speaker produced a handsome traveling bag, fitted with a magnificent
toilet set, and handed it to Bayley.
The Initials "J.B." are inscribed in
gold on the bag.
Bayley was overwhelmed with
pleasure at this demonstration of the
esteem in which he is held, and
could hardly find words to express
his thanks. He hoped that he would
always merit the friendship of such
fine fellows as the shinglers.
 o	
BARRIEAU'S WEIGHT.
Some excel#Ion has been taken by
Joe Bayley's manager to a statement
which has several times appeared in
Vancouver papers to the effect that
Barrieau and Bayley will weigh In at
135 pounds five hours previous to
their bout of May 24. The articles
expressly state that they shall weigh
In at 133 pounds four hours and a
half before the contest.

DOCTOR CANNOT
ENFORCE CLAIM
CASE     HEARD    BEFORE    JUDGE
YOUNG YESTERDAY IXVOLY-
ING BILL   FOB   PROFESSIONAL   SERVICES.
The Liability of the    Defendant Was
Not Proved to tbe Satisfaction of
the Judge—Action Was
Dismissed.
Dr. Cleaves, ot Seal tie, who has a
claim against G. Robinson for professional services to Mrs. Skelling, a
daughter of his, found In court yesterday that he could not collect It
from the father. The case came up
before Judge Young.
Dr. Cleaves had performed an operation in Seattle upon Mrs. Skelling
and looked to ihe father to pay the
bill. The woman was over 21 years
of age, bul the doctor was satisfied
that the father had becomo responsible for the debt. The case was
first hoard in Vancouver before
Judge Mclnnis, but the point was
there raised that Robinson, the defendant, lived in Kitimaat the most
of his time, and therefore the case
did not belong to the Vancouver
court.
It was then entered here and local
firms took the case up for their
agents in the south. At the trial yesterday the evidence of Robinson was
that he did not become responsible
for the debt. The doctor, had no written guarantee to pay, but testified
that the defendant expressed his
willingness to pay If the daughter did
not do so.
The judge felt that in view of the
evidence and the fact that there was
no written understanding to the effect that the defendant was to pay,
that he could do nothing but dismiss
the case, although he felt that someone should have paid the doctor. C.
V. Bennett acted for the plaintiff
and W. E. Williams for the defendant.

ANTI-CIGARETTE MEASURE.
The introduction in the Dominion
Parliament of an anti-cigarette bill
as a Government measure, with no
less a sponsor than Right Hon. R. L.
Borden himself, was the surprising
event foreshadowed at the convention
of the Hochelaga County W.C.T.U.
held at the First Baptist Church,
Montreal, a few days ago.
The matter came up quite unexpectedly through'the passage of a
resolution thanking Hon. Mr. Borden
for his promise to introduce this legislation, which has been vigorously
advocated and sought after by the
W.C.T.U. for several years past.
Mr. Robert BIckerdike, M.P., who
was about five years ago father of
an anti-cigarette bill which met defeat in Parliament, has promised to
second Mr. Borden's bill when it is
introduced.

to have the coast well lighted, so
that navigation may be rendered far
less difficult and the danger of accidents reduced to a minimum. The
lights on the outside passage will not
be so numerous as those In operation in the inBide route, owing to
there being more water and fewer
treacherous rocks.
Next year it is expected that work
will be started on the new Bonilla
Island lighthouse, which will also be
one of the guiding lights in Hecate
Strait. The lighthouse tenders will
have an exceptionally busy year
keeping pace with the enormous
amount of work which is to be undertaken. The new steamer Estevan
will be of great assistance and will
reliee the pressure greatly.
BREED BLACK FOXES.
British Columbia Company Hius Purchased 175-acre Tract Near
Nanaimo.
The British Columbia Black
Foxes, Limited, with an authorized
capital of $250,000, has just been Incorporated for the purpose of breeding black foxes and other fur-bear-
ing animals in captivity. Its headquarters will be located on a 175-acre
farm with an elevation of 800 feet
above the sea and distant seven miles
from Nanaimo. The directors are
Messrs. Fred Ryan, a director of a
similar company in New Brunswick,
George E. Macdonald, J. Haydn
Young, Charles S. Meek and Captain
George Anderson, all of this city.
Six pairs of pedigreed -. Iver-black
foxes will be the nuc1 i . the proposed stock farm near Nanaimo. An
equal number was recently purchased
from the Dalton breeding farm on
Prince Edward Island on behalf of
the Russian Government for $120,-
000, it is said.
The highest grade of black foxes
for 1918 delivery cost from $15,000
to $20,000 a pair, it is assorted that
$30,000 was recently offered for a
four-year-old pair, but the owners refused to sell at any price. The profits
of the existing companies in New
Brunswick and Prince Edward Island are claimed to be 100 per cent,
yearly.

NEW LIGHTHOUSE.
Within about two weeks the first
shipment of material for the new
first order light to be constructed by
the Dominion Government on Cape
St. James will be taken by the
steamer Leebro, Captain Huuter. Instructions have been received trom
Ottawa for the commencement of the
work on this important aid to navigation, and before the summer has
advanced very far It is expected that
the big undertaking will be well under way. It will probably be well on
towards the close of next year before
the light is ready for operation.
Simultaneous with the  recelp*. of
orders to start on the big lighthouse
came instructions for the establish-:
ment of three new acetylene beacons [
One will be placed at Green    Point i
Rapids,  Cardero    Island,    Johnston
Straits; the second on Triple Island,
Brown Passage, and    the third    on
Alskiew Island, Granby Bay.      The
work on these three beacons will be
started very soon and    the    Marino
Department hopes to have the new
aids working before the summer has
passed.
The Dominion Government has do-1
elded to establish the big first ort'er j
light at Cape St.    James, followinp !

that it is the only logical point   to
