SPRING SALMON ARE
BEGINNING TO COME
Tne James Carruthers of the Canadian Fish and
Cold Storage Company Will Make Trips to
Queen Charlottes Twice A Week —
Brought In 1,000 Yesterday As
A Start- -On the Way Vessel Took Up 30 000
of Halibut
The run of spring salmon is already commenced. The James Carruthers of the fleet of the Canadian
Fish & Cold Storage arrived back
from Graham Island yesterday morning with the first load from those
fishing grounds. It had 1000 of the
fish, all in first-class shape for curing. Tbe vessel left again last night
for the Islands and will from now
on make two trips a week to the stations on the. Islands, where the fishermen will leave the fish for the
trawler to take on board for Prince
Rupert.
In and about the harbor of Prince
Rupert there are fish being taken
also of the spring variety. Off Graham Island there is a marked run of
them and the boats that are operating there are taking good numbers.
The spring salmon is used for
mild curing largely and is kept as
fresh as possible, so that they will
have to be gathered quickly, being
kept on ice up to the very time of
curing. The Carruthers will, therefore, keep plying back and forth to
the Islands as quickly as possible
to facilitate the handling.
On the trip from the Islands yesterday the trawler in the absence of
a complete load of springs, dropped
a few dories and in the course of a
few hours gathered in 30,000
pounds of halibut without much
trouble.

Halifax, May 17.—A mob

street cars and the tram offices here last night. The riots

Washington, May 17.—The
Japanese negotiations over the California land bill have not ' advanced
the slightest auring the last twenty-
four hours. Governor Johnson has
not yet signed the bill, so far as officials in Washington are advised.
It is believed negotiations for a
modification of the. bill will be resumed.
Officials here are doing everything to discourage any sensational
stories which might provoke strained relations. Hon. W. J. Bryan today admonished newspaper callers
against speaking as to the government's policies.

Unless some other change is made
by the stationing committee of the
Methodist Church, Rev. C. R. Sing,
who for three years has been pastor
here, will remove to Duncans, Vancouver Island, and Rev. John O.
Dimmick will become pastor In
Prince Rupert. Mr. Sing, during his
pastorate here, has to his credit
three years of persevering work. In
that time he was instrumental In
having a move made towards securing a very substantial church building here.
His new station on Vancouver Island Is a delightful one, being a
very complete change from the conditions that prevail here. Duncans is
a prosperous little town, with a rich
country around it, with well-cultivated farms. As things go in British
Columbia it ranks as one of the old
places.
Rev. Mr. Dimmick, the new pastor
for Prince Rupert, has had a very
successful career in the ministry. He
has been three years in Fernie, and
when it was decided that he should
come to Prince Rupert his congregation telegraphed a request that he
return to Fernie for another year.
He is reported to be a man specially
adapted for this place.

Centre street, or what has been
known under that name for so long
a time, will soon be a thing of the
past. The violent hands of the railway contractor have been laid upon
it and with the assistance of dynamite and the steam shovel there will
soon be a great gap torn in what
was for a long time the city's principal avenue. Those who look back

Panvini, a well-known local engineer, has gone over to the Islands to
see for himself how the matter
stands. He is expected to return in
the course of a few days and should
have exact information on the subject.
If the reports are true, there is
one of the greatest booms in store
for that part of the district that has
been seen in any part of British Columbia for many a year. Prince Rupert will be a decided benefitter by
this.

was generally referred to as Pills-
bury avenue. The engineer so honor

to that name, being a modest man.
The operations that are being carried out by the railway company In
connection with the work of getting
ready for the great terminals has
completely altered the whole face of
Nature. Where commanding hills
stood and where the no inconsiderable creek ran, near the base of
Centre street, has all been wiped off
the map. It is quickly being transformed into the solid foundation for
tho substantial offices that will
serve in the course of a few months'
time as the terminal offices for the
company and the station accommodation. In addition, there will be the
foundation in Ibis excavated part for
the rails that will be the starting and
the ending point for the transcontinental trains that will be constantly
going and coming to the place.

it Is the hope to make it an annual
event. It will serve as one of the
best means for making known to the
world the vast resources of this district. Here they will be able to

WHAT PRINCE RUPERT
HAS ASSURED TO HER
The city of Prince Rupert starts off with an assurance with respect to the future far in excess of anything possessed by any other
city In Canada. While citieB of over 100,000 of a population are
striving to interest capital In drydocks, in shipbuilding plants, in
elevator; and In many other lines of industry and permanent improvements these are assured to Prince Rupert in its infancy and in
many instances the works are already under way. Few residents
really realize what the work means to the city. In order to bring
to their attention the situation in this respect the following works
now under way or assured to the city are enumerated:
Prince Rupert floating dock, under construction by the G. T. P.
at a cost approaching $2,000,000 and capable of taking care of the
largest vessel on the Pacific Ocean.
Shipbuilding plant in conjunction with the floating dock in
which can be constructed coasting vessels at any season of the
year,
Grain elevators with a capacity of ten uil'lion bushels to be
constructed by the G. T. P.
Colossal hotel to cost a million dollars now about to be started by
the G.T.P.
Permanent station and sheds for the. wharf now about to start
by the G. T. P.
Acres of railway yards now being cleared by the G. T. P. of
rock at a cost of a million dollars or more.
Provincial Government Buildings of stone structure costing half
a million now about to be started.
sum   approximating
Federal Government Buildings   to   cost a
that of the Provincial Buildings.
Large cold storage for fishit g industry now bui't by the Canadian Fish & Cold Storage Company at Seal Cove, and supplied with
a large fleet of trawlers, seining boats, etc., costing a million and
a half dollars, now in full operation.
Cannery of   the    most    improved   type    under    construction    by
the  Canadian  Fish  &  Cold   Storage Company.
Cold storage to be erected by the British Columbia Fisheries this
fall at Porpoise Harbor to be used in the fishing industry somewhat
similar to the Canadian Fish & Cold Storage Company.
In addition to these as some of the large plants that are absolutely assured, there are numerous other Ashing concerns with
plans somewhat less extensive.additional works for tbe G. T. P,
permanent docks for the railway company, oil storage tanks for
the Standard Oil Company to supply all the demands of the
north and numerous other industrial concerns.
Under these curcumstanees, can it be wondered as that citizens
of Prince Rupert feel sure with respect to the future.

THE TALL FAIR.
The city of Prince Rupert and the
district generally will receive a decided advantage from the Exhibition
that is to be held here this Fall, and
It is to be hoped that this will become one of the permanent events
of the year in the city. The committee that has the work in hand
appear to be giving a vast amount
of work to the proposition, with the
result that there is an assurance
that the Fair will be a credit to the
place.
From a publicity standpoint the
Exhibition cannot fail to have a decided effect. It will attract to the
district attention to the fact that
this is a farming country and not a
wilderness. New British Columbia
is only beginning to be opened up.
Tbe possibilities of the country are
not yet known. A start has been
made in the direction of development, but it will require years before the resources of the district are
fully grasped. There has been a start
made in the opening up to the attention of ihe world the vast areas
of agricultural lands that lie within
a measurable distance of this city,
and the Immense possibilities of this
land. The Fair will demonstrate to
the world that there is a country
here which can produce all that any
other part of the Province of British
Columbia can yield.
In no one direction from the city
Is there a monopoly of the arable
lands. On the contrary, there are
wide stretches of the very best farming areas obtainable in practically
every direction from this city. Along
the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
which has had the effect of bringing
this district into the public eye and
making it possible as a place of
residence, there are fertile valleys
that stretch south of the Skeena for
miles into the Lakelse aud up the
Kitsumkalum into the Naas and the
Groundhog country, which cannot
be excelled in point of farm lands.
Owing to the proximity to the city
of Prince Rupert, with the immense
possibilities that the city has, these
lands must as a natural consequence
come to be used for intensive farming and from these fertile fields that
are now being cleared will come the
future fruit and vegetable supplies
for the'ambitious port that is to be
built up here. These valleys, in the
opinion of the Deputy Minister of
Agriculture, W. E. Scott, constitute
the largest and the richest agricultural areas in the whole of the
Province of British  Columbia.
Farther along the Skeena lie
smaller valleys that are none the
less rich as fields for settlement.
Still farther lies the vast open country that is afforded In the valley of
the Bulkley, with the lake country
to the south of it,  well adapted  for
mixed farming and for grazing.
North and south of the Grand Trunk
Pacific throughout the /territory
through which the railway runs are
elevated plains that will produce
crops and stock to supply a great
population. All of this area will afford the means of feeding the population of Prince Rupert and the
other industrial and trading centres
that may be built up. Interspersed
with the agricultural lands is the
richest promise in the line of mining and timber, all of which will
bring together a population that
will prove the best buyers of produce that can be found.
The Queen Charlottes and the intervening islands along the coast
abound in rich bottom lands that
will maintain a vast farming population and serve to feed this city.
It would appear, in fact, as If Nature had been particularly prodigal
in the bestowing of riches in this
northern district. The resources that
are usually found in rich quantity
in other parts of the province seem
to have all been poured out In equal
richness here. The mineral resources
of the district are unexcelled; the
fisheries are the best on the coast;
the timber will rival that of any
other part of the province; and the
agricultural and fruit lands are the
greatest and the richest that the
province has. The heritage of the
North Is a great one. The future cannot fail to be a great one.

In order to test the Queen Charlotte Islands as a place for the "rearing of the Mongolian and English
pheasant, so much sought after as a
game bird, a number of these have
been placed on the Islands at the instance of the game department of the
province. It is believed that the mild
climate that prevails there will be
exactly suited to the birds and that
in a short time there will be great
numbers roaming at will there. If
that is the result, the importance of
the Islands as a source for sport will
be radically increased.
The pheasant thrives well on Vair-
couver Island and on the lower
mainland of the province, and it is
anticipated that there should be no
difficulty in having them breed
readily on the near-by islands.
The experiment will be watched
with a great deal of interest and it
is hoped that the experiment may
be a signal success.

(Extract from The Insurance   News
of London.)
THE LONDON ASSURANCE!.
The London Assurance, the first
of the Important general offices to
issue its report, has reason to he
proud of its statement of affairs. Although excellent results are invariably secured in normal times by this
venerable institution, the figures
for the past year are surprisingly
g-jod, and beyond the most sanguine
expectations. In all departments-
life, fire, marine and accident—past
records, both as regards turnover
and net profits, have been easily surpassed, and as a result of the year's
operations there has been an accession of strength without precedent i:i
the corporation's long career of
nearly two hundred years. The assurances completed in the life department exhibit considerable expansion, new policies having been
issued for a total sum of £873,393,
against £464,299 in the preceding
year. The business is manifestly of
high quality, as Is shown by the
average amount insured, viz., £1300.
The fire premium income also forms
a record, the sum received being
£681,140, an advance of some £20,-
000 over 1911, while the losses were
only £301,609, or 44 1-4 per cent.
The underwriting surplus was £120,-
2/9, or 17.66 per cent. " of the
premiums. This surplus, derived
from a world-wide business, proves
Tjoth that the skill in selection is of
the highest order, and that the business is under complete control. The
marine results also come as a surprise, for instead of being below,
they are much above the average,
the balance being £72,272, or 17.03
per cent, on a premium revenue of
£424,155. The wretched condition of
marine insurance generally is, therefore, not reflected in the returns of
the London, there being every indication that the busines is on an extremely sound and progressive basis.
The marine fund now stands at
£400,000, and a substantial sum has
been transferred to profit and loss.
The Capital and Leasehold Redemption Account is a small one. So also
is the Accident Account, hut the income is making steady progress, and
for quality it is unsurpassed. The
premiums amounted to £14,091, and
after the payment of claims, expenses, and other charges, the surplus was £5520, or 9.17 per cent. It
is evident, therefore, that this department will in time add materially
to the profits. *
No one will be found to criticise
the financial administration. How
excellent the position is in this re-
pect is indicated by the following
figures:
Shareholders' dividend   £89,655
Interest     on     departmental
funds (exclusive of life
Fire department.£23,006
Marine dept.   . . .   12,429

Add life profits
Transfer fees . .
73,532
15,000
45
88,577
Required from underwriting
profits    £1,078
The only charge, therefore, upon
the profits In order to pay the dividend of £89,655, Is the trifling one
of £1,078, and It must be remembered that last* year these profits
amounted to the handsome sum of
£191,846. No office is more fortunately placed, and the position is
rapidly improving. After payment of
the dividend, the resources (excluding the life department) are increased by upwards of £190,000. This
must necessarily have a marked effect upon the Interest earnings. The
London is an old historic office, and
has played an important part in insurance history. In seven more
years it will celebrate its bicentenary—a rare distinction even with insurance Institutions. It has passed
through all the vicissitudes which
k' have overtaken insurance business
during two centuries with composure, dignity and success, and today
Its prospects are brighter, and its
vigor and capacity for usefulness
greater than at any previous stage.
The above stable company is represented here by M. M. Stephens &
Co., the well-known writers of i'
surance.

TO CARRY COAL

UNITED    STATES     WILL     HOLD
NAVAL  DEMONSTRATION ON
THE    PACIFIC    COAST—
WAR NOT EXPECTED.
PaU Mall  Gazette Gives  Expression
to  the  Peeling;    of    Antipathy
Which Western Canada Has
for Orientals.
London, May 17.—It is stated that
a number of steamers have been
chartered by the United States Government to carry Welsh coal for the
American fleet on the Pacific Coast.
This activity on the part of the
United States is taken to implicate a
naval demonstration on the Pacific,
but it is not expected here that the
present difficulty with Japan will
lead to open hostilities.
Should war break out, says the
Pall Mall Gazette, the sympathies
of Western Canada, New Zealand
and Australia would be violently
with the Americans, The paper continues that it is of the opinion that
Japan will never go to wflr to force
her treaty rights. ,
California is pursuing one of
those dangerous generalities which
lead nations blindfold to the brink
of the pit. There are several reasons
why Japan should press the issue at
at the present moment, the most obvious of these being the Panama
oanal.

A few days ago on a steamer from
Seattle there arrived here the -first
group of Russian Immigrants to
come to this country direct by way
of the United States. There were
four of them in the company and
they entered by the United States
Atlantic ports, being inspected there
by tbe Dominion officials, and passed on directly by card to the local
port, travelling all the way by the
United States.
Here they were duly passed by
the local immigration officer, Dr.
McNeill, and proceeded up- the
Skeena to become residents of the
country. They were all of them fine
specimens of settler and should" assimilate with the country.

ESTIMATE ON CROP.
First One   Is Made   Relative   to the
United States Production for
the Year.
The first official estimate of the
size of the crop of winter wheat has
been made in the May crop report of
the Crop Reporting Board, Bureau of
Statistics, United States Department
of Agriculture. The report shows the
condition on May 1 of winter wheat,
rye, meadow lands and pastures, the
percentage of spring plowing and
spring planting completed, the acreage of the winter wheat to be harvested, the estimated out-turn of the
winter wheat crop and the stocks of
hay on farms. The figures are:
Winter wheat—The average condition of the winter wheat on May 1
was 91.9 per cent, of a normal, compared with 91.6 per cent. April 1,
79.7 per cent. May 1, 1912, and 85.6
per cent, the average for the past
ten years on May 1. The average of
winter wheat remaining to be harvested was about 3,308,000 acres, or
449,000 acres less than the area last
autumn, but 1,367,000 acres more
than the area harvested last year
(2,657,000 acres).
The condition on May 1 is indicative of yield per acre of approximately 16.6 bushels, assuming average variations to prevail thereafter. On the
estimated area to be harvested this
would produce a final crop of 513,-
571,000 bushels compared with 399,-
000,000 bushels in 1912; 430,656,-
000 bushels in 1911; 434,142,000
bushels in 1910, and 417,780,000
bushels in 1909. The out-turn of the
crop probably will be above or below the figures here given, according
to the condition from May 1 to the
time of harvest is above or below the
average change.
Spring plowing—Of spring plowing
67.2 per cent, was completed up to
May 1, compared with 52.8 per cent.,
May 1, 1912, and a ten year average
on May 1 of 65.7 per cent.
Spring planting—Of spring planting 57.0 per cent, was completed up
to May 1, compared with 48.9 per
cent, on May 1, 1912, and a six year
average on May 1 of 54.3 per cent.

KEEN COMPETITION.
Apparently there is to be keen
competition this season in the spring
salmon trade out of here. This fish
is used nearly altogether in the mild-
curing process. The spring salmon
does not run in schools to the same
extent as the other varieties on the
coast, and so their coming and going
is not a matter to be counted upon
as surely as the sockcye, for instance. At the same time, the spring
salmon has its favorite gathering
places, and off Masset Inlet seems
to be a favorite place for the fish.
| Accordingly, the fishermen engaged
in the taking of the springs have
congregated for the most part In that
vicinity. Thence the fishing steamers from the mild-curing establishments will have to proceed to buy
the take. Four or five different fishing companies on this coast are intending to make a specialty of this
lino of curing this season.       '

AFTER  LIVING   IN
NEW YORK.
He Hits Business Here anil Will  Remain   Some  Little    Time—Says
This Place Looks Good
to Him.
J. Gluck, one of the most popular
of Prince Rupert's pioneers, is again
in the city, after an absence of some
months. He has spent the most of the
time he has been away in the east,
making his headquarters in New
York. Business, and at the same
time a lurking liking for the city of
Prince Rupert, led  him to turn his
steps in this direction again. He will
spend a few weeks, perhaps, here.
He will then make for San Diego,
where  he has  business  interests.
The money stringency that is prevailing lias not, says Mr. Gluck,
made itself as manifest in ,he eastern cities as it is in the vest.
Prince Rupert, however, he thinks,
has escaped very well in this regard and there is not the evidences
here that the tightness of money Is
showing in some of the larger cities
of the west. This city looks well to
him and he has the same unboundlng
faith as he has ever had in the city.
