HALIBUT FISHING
GROUNDS INCREASING
There Seems To Be No Danger For A Long Time
To Come At Least Jhat There Will Be Any
Narked Falling Off In the Catches of
the Fish-Local Fishing Steamers Are Taking From Areas
That Have Not Contributed Before
The halibut vessels plying out of
here continue to have splendid success Yesterday mommg there reached port, with 80,000 pounds, the
Zibasfa, of the Canadian Fish &
Cold Storage Company. The Zibassa
is one of the smaller vessels of the
company and had been out only six
days. The sister boat, the Skugaid,
which arrived a few days ago, had
75,000 pounds on board instead of
60,000 pounds as reported. The
George E. Foster, one of the large
steam trawlers, is expected to return
to port today and will likely have a
large catch. Her sister, the Andrew
Kelly, brought 150,000 pounds a few
days ago.
At times there Is a fear expressed
in some! quarters that the halibut
banks will be depleted ' with the
persistent fishing that is followed.
While there must be some limit to
the catch, yet It would appear from
what the experienced fishermen say
that that time is a long way in the
future. It is even slated that the
fishing that has been followed for
years past has only served to improve the catches by thinning out
the schools of fish.
Another point that is sometimes
lost sight of Is the fact that-the halibut banks have never been fully located. There are reasons for believing that there are still many fishing locations for the halibut In these
northern waters that have never been
visited by the vessels. In this connection it is worthy of note that the
steamers of the Canadian Fish &
Cold Storage Company are taking
halibut of the choicest quality from
locations that are described as Alaskan waters. They are not territorial
waters in any sense, but are off the
Alaskan coast rather than off the
British Columbia coast. These fish
that are taken are of the very choicest quality. The smaller vessels are
satisfied to remain on the near-by
banks, but the large trawlers have
been taking fish from virgin territory.
This order of things, it is expected,
will continue, and from time to time
new banks will open up to the fishermen. Prince Rupert being so convenient to the whole of the area in
which the halibut abound, there Is
the greatest facility for exploiting
the banks.
There is, however, the greatest
possibilities with respect to the development of the other deep sea fisheries apart from halibut. Hitherto on
account of the splendid demand for
this fish and the ease with which
they can be caught there has been
a decided tendency to let the other
varieties found In the deep seas go
unmolested. The time of that condi
tion of affairs is fast passing, it is
safe to say. Moreattention will from
time to time be paid to tbe more
valuable classes of fish which abound
In these waters and which will be
handled in a commercial way now
that the facilities exist here for taking care of them.

* Killed By Fall of Church Spire"
Stratford, Ont., May 13.—During a fire which gutted the Knox
Presbyterian Church here, the chief of police, the chief of the fire
brigade and Constnble Hamilton were all instantly killed when the
huge spire, 160 feet in height, toppled over, crushing them to
death. The chief of police was J. A. McCarthy, while the fire chief
was Hugh Durkin.
CRUISER SENT
TO GUATEMALA
British Warship Is Despatched to
See That Settlement of Longstanding Claims Against tTie South
American State Is Made Without
Further Delay.
The Little Nation Has Been Given
Until May 15 to Come to Terms—
Failing That, There May Be an
Enforcement of the Demands by a
Show of Strength.
Kingston, May 13.—A British
cruiser has been despatched from
here for Guatemala to enforce a
settlement of the long-standing
claims of the British subjects against,
that country. The time limit set by
Britain for the settlement expires
on May 16.
The dispute with Guatemala which
Britain is endeavoring to bring to a
conclusion is one that has been the
subject of a good deal of diplomatic
correspondence. The South American
power, however, seems to have conceived the Idea that the larger nation
is not serious in the move. Tbe despatch of the cruiser will probably
serve to correct such an idea.
TIGHT MONEY
IS FORECASTED
It Is Reported From London That
the British Require All the Capital
That Is Available in Connection
With Their Own Business, Which
Is Increasing in   Volume  Largely.
On the Other Hand, Recent Reports
.   From     the     British.    Metropolis
Would Indicate That the Situation
Throughout Europe Has Had a Reassuring Effect Upon Investors.
London, May 13.—Tight money
will be the order for some time to
come, is the opinion expressed here.
The British people, It is stated, require all the money available for
their own business. This is due to the
rapid extension in the various lines
of trade and the consequent enlargement of plants and facilities.
At the same time within recent
days London seemed to regard the
continental situation with considerable more tranquility and money was
in god supply for immediate requirements, although probably the underlying tone is not'materially changed,
and may even be expected to stiffen
when waiting new issues are placed
on the market.
GRAND TRUNK IS INCREASING EARNINGS
The Old Established System That Will Have Its
Pacific Outlet By Way of Prince Rupert Had
A Very Decided Increase In Business
During the Month of April-It Led
All Other Railways in the
Dominion During the
Month Just Passed
The Grand Trunk Railway, which
is so closely bound up with the
Grand Trunk Pacific with its Pacific
outlet by way of Prince Rupert, is,
judging by the reports as to the earnings, having a prosperous year. The
Grand'Trunk has an extensive system throughout the east, and judging from the earnings the eastern
parts of the Dominion must be having decided activity, which is reflected in the railway receipts.
The Grand Trunk Railway for
April led ail other Canadian roads in
earnings with a gain of $549,154, or
13.3 per cent., as compared with
C.F.R.'s $448,000, or approximately
4 per cent. .
Based on tTie weekly returns of the
two roads, the April earnings were:
C.P.R., for 1913, $11,476,000; for
1912, $11,028,000, showing an increase of $448,000.
G.T.R., for 1913, $4,685,256; for
1912, $4,136,102, showing an increase of $549,154.
For the last quarter of the month,
a'so, the Grand Trunk its Its big
rival, showing an increase of $204,-
327, as against the C.P.R.'s $126,-
000. The figures are:
C.P.R., for 1913, $3,513,000; for
1912, $3,387,000, showing an increase of $126,000.
G.T.R., for 1913, $1,523,144; for
1912, $1,318,817, showing an increase of $204,327.
The Canadian Northern, the earnings of which, while hardly comparing in volume to either those of the
C.P.R. or Grand Trunk, nevertheless
showed up well in April and registered a gain of over 14 per cent., the
figures being: 1913, $565,000, and
1912, $495,500. The totals are for
the C.N.R. proper and do not include
the earnings of the numerous
Mackenzie and Mann subsidiaries.
THE LAND PROBLEM IN PROVINCE
Interesting Facts Put Forward By Hon. W. R. Ross, of the Victoria Government Relative to the
Development of B. C. Along the Lines of Opening Up the Farm Areas To Become Productive and Serve the Ever Increasing Demands of .the Country-Diversified
Conditions Have To Be Met In Framing A Policy That Will Encourage the Conversion of the Lands Into Great
Agricultural Settlements.
Speaking before the Victoria
Board of Traae some time ago,
Hon. W. R. Ross, minister of lands,
dealt at length with the land and
settlement problems existing in this
province. He said:
"You know that the population of
the province is increasing very rapidly. From the statistics that are
available it is increasing at the rate
of from 75,000 to 100,000 per annum. If you estimate the consumption per head of agricultural products at $80 per annum, which I
think is fairly conservative, you see
at once that 75,000 persons would
consume $6,000,000 worth, being
the annual amount of Increase of
consumption. That Is very considerable and, If you cut It In two. It Is
still a large annual increase to keep
up with In annual production. Now
the figures of the agricultural department show that In 1910 the Im-

ports were $14,850,000 and the
home production $14,4000,00. In
1912 the imports amounted to $15,-
250,000 and the home production
$22,270,000.
"You must remember that we shall
never reach a time, when we shall
cease to import largely of agricultural products, because the returns
include tropical fruits out of season.
Until the northern country, which is
admirably adapted for stock raising
and dairying, is fully developed, we
must depend upon the prairies for
our meat supply and outside sources
for dairy products.
"You must remember also that
where formerly in the vicinity of Victoria and New Westminster and
other towns of the province, there
was considerable produce raised,
when prices were much lower than
they are at present, there lias been
a tremendous rise In renl estate values, with the result that large arens
have been subdivided for real estate
purposes.
"To get land for agricultural pur-
back, and this raises the problem at
which you hinted, that of some comprehensive system of development
and assistance which the government
has at various times-been asked to
consider. The government has considered It and that very seriously,
but the obstacles to a very easy solution are more serious than most people have any idea of who have not
been given the responsibility of overcoming them. In this matter the
government has done what it has
done successfully In dealing with
other problems—the problems of
taxation, insurance, and so forth.
"It has appointed a commission of
practical men, who are at tbe present
moment investigating the conditions
affecting agriculture and settlement
In this province from every point of
view. In a year from now we shall
probably have their report, and the
government will then be in a much
better  position to come    to    a con
clusion as to what its proper policy
should be in respect to any new departure which involves serious responsibilities to undertake. A policy
of whatever nature must be wide
enough and comprehensive enough
to embrace the whole of the province and to embrace all the conditions, which vary greatly in character.
"In one place you have the clearing of land, in another you have
draining on a large scale, in another
you have irrigation, and in yet another you have protection against
overflow. All these conditions where
you meet them demand equal consideration. You cannot make fish of
one and flesh of another. You must
realize as the government realizes,
the immensity of the task when you
embark on tbe experimental road of
what, if not paternalism, is at least
a wholesale system of assistance and
backing of individual credit. Personally, I am In sympathy with the
movement,   if i can sec   my   way
through the mazes of the Intricacies
of finance and our financial ability
to undertake it In some way of n
business nature that will be safe to
follow.
"I shall now deal more particularly with the land policy of the government, and in doing so I want i.0 meet
fairly and frankly the criticisms of
those who for political or other purposes bave attacked it. 1 am not here
to talk politics, and I do not Intend
to, but I cannot avoid traversing
some of the ground which our critics
have trodden in order to make our
position plain and clear.
"In the first place, the physical
conditions of the province are peculiar to this province and absolutely
unlike those which exist in any other
province of the Dominion. They are
similar to those which exist south of
the*line In the Pacific Coast States,
in which there is a very large agricultural production, but in Washington, Oregon and    California,    there
the extensive areas of open prairie
land which we possess only to a limited extent. In respect to their timbered lands they are confronted with
the same problems that we are and
have not gone any farther towards a
solution, may I say, than we have.
"When people come here from the
Middle West and from Ontario where
the country is level and the conditions uniform, they are apt to wonder why they cannot go into the
lands office and find out exactly
where they can get a section or quarter-section to pre-empt, with full
particulars, and they say that when
that is not available that it is the
duty of the government to have all
such information on tap. They write
letters to tho papers or complain to
their friends and their complaints
are echoed for political purposes.
"1 do not blame political opponents for taking advantage of such a
situation. 1 would probably do so
myself or my friends mould do so for
me. Hut these people forget, or do
not. know, that this province is 381,-
000 square miles in extent, nnd that
out of Its 250,000,000 odd acres of
area there is not more than 10 per
cent, of it arable, the latter being
scattered here and there throughout
this vast domain at long intervals
from each other.
"A great deal of il liiis been remote from lines of communication,
and much of it will remain so lor
some time to come, it is a country
filled with mountains, and the physical contour is very Irregular. Except in a few of the larger valleys,
such as the Westminster district, in
the Okanagan, Ihe Nechaco anil the
Peace River, the agricultural land
Is In small areas, without any definite relation to each other. Nothing

would have revealed the hinds available and definitely located ami platted   them.  You   must   take  into  ron-

ROAD-MAKING.
Before long Prince Rupert will
have to grapple with the important
question of road-making, and so important is it that the best methods
should be made known and carefully
investigated the following extract
from The London Dai'y Mail is
timely:
Results so far of the Kent Road
trials at Sidcup establish the value of
bitumen as a component of a road
surface for motor traffic.
Bitumen also plays an Important
part in an experiment in Fortis
Green-road, Hornsey, through which
about 750 motor-omnibuses pass
daily. The length of road under
treatment is about a mile. The material is granite bound together with
bitumen and covered with sheet
asphalt pavement, which is a mixture
of bitumen and sand.
Results have been extremely satisfactory. Sections completed about
three months ago show practically no
signs of wear, though the original
macadam was also destroyed a few
weeks after the motor-omnibuses began to use the road.
"The advantage of this material,"
said an expert, "is that it is practically waterproof, slightly elastic,
noiseless, very durable, and extremely sanitary. Above all, it is cheap,
about half the price of wood paving.
The composition is similar to that on
the Embankment between Westminster and Charing Cross, one' of the
finest pieces of roading in London.
THE LAND PROBLEM
IN PROVINCE
CANADA FIRST.
With the advance of time, Canada
appears to be given a more prominent place in the eyes of the Britishers. It is to Canada they look more
and more for investment. It is the
land that every Britisher wants to
visit, and in increasing numbers the
Old Country residents are coming
here to live.
Mr. Arthur Hawkes, addressing
the Canadian Club in Moosejaw, on
the question "Why an Englishman
Puts Canada First," said: "Much as
the Englishman in Canada would
like to say he was native-born, he
knew his children could and it is his
children that consecrate his choice
of Canada."

"The Englishman in Canada,"
said Mr. Hawkes, "finds out- that he
Is a far bigger man in the Empire
than if he stayed at home in England, because he is up against something he never sensed before, the experience of a country that is In the

sideration the fact that the existing
railways, the main line of the C.P.R.,
the Crow's Jlest, Columbia & Western, and Columbia & Kootenay ran
through territory which has been
largely alienated to the Dominion
government in subsiries to the railway companies, and there was little
land within the influence of communication that could be dealt with
by the government. It is only now
that the new lines of railway, the
Grand Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Northern Pacific, and, the Pacific Great Eastern are opening up
territory solely within tbe jurisdiction of the government. With regard
to these our policy Is one of development upon lines of modern methods
applicable to local conditions.
"Now, then, let us get down to the
practical application of these facts.
The land policy of the government of
today was bequeathed to it. It accepted it as it was and proceeded to
administer the laws as they were and
had been for years. What was the
situation in 19011? Practically every
foot of good land at all accessible in
the districts more or less developed
had been alienatel in one form or
another. What was left, which we
know was very considerable, wlis in
districts remote from railway or
other communication, and it would
have been the greatest injustice and
unkindness to have offered it to settlers. Three things were necessary
to remedy such a situation—extensive surveys, railways and public
roads. But, as you know, in 1903,
the government was without money
or financial resources. Its hands were
tied in regard to these and many
other important undertakings, and it
was not until 1908, after restored
ciedit, good times and a series of surpluses, that the government could
undertake surveys on a large scale.
"We have spent in surveys, including the Survey of townsites, so far,
a sum of approximately $2,104,000,
and surveyed about $18,900,000
acres of land, including timber and
coal, and it must be obvious to you
that we are only at the beginning ol
the task of surveying British Columbia. This year we are appropriating
$750,000, and this is simply a drop
in the bucket of our requirements.
"To build railways through a country like British Columbia is an heroic
undertaking, and the 2000 odd miles
now under construction will cost
$150,000,000 to complete and equip.
To build vehicular highways to connect up all these agricultural valleys
witheach other and with lines of
communication at a cost of from
$3000 to $5000 per mile is another
gigantic undertaking. Settlement j
without roads is impossible. We have
built many a mile of road during the
past five years, the expenditure during that period having been some
$12,000,000. The estimate of the
public works department is that to
properly road up the district of
Skeena to meet future development
would cost the tremendous sum of
$25,000,000, and it would be hard
to conjecture the cost of proportionate development for the rest of the
province. A sum of $150,000,000
would probably be a fair estimate."

"Ah," said a conceited young parson, "I have this afternoon been
preaching to a congregation of
asses." "Then that was the reason
why you always called them 'beloved brethren,' " replied a strong-
minded lady.

A CIGAR STUB
STARTED FIRE
Dr. King, the Coroner Who Investigated tbe Opliir Disaster, Ascribes
the Accident to the Carelessness of
Some Smoker on Board' the Ill-
fated Ship.
He Believes That a Cigarette or Cigar
Carelessly Thrown Away May Have
Led to the ftoss of (he Six Men
Who Perished on the Steamer
Some Days Ago.
| 	
New Westminster, May 13.—The
stub of a lighted cigar or a cigarette
carelessly thrown away was the
cause of the fire on board the
stoamer Opliir which was followed
by the loss of six lives in the Fraser
River. This is the opinion expressed
by D.\ King, tiie coroner, who investigated the circumstances surrounding tho death of the men.
Trapped by flames which caught
them sleeping in their bunks, six
members of the crew of the steamer
Opliir, which sailed from Vancouver
and tied up at the Brunswick Cannery, near Ladner, on the Fraser
River, were burned to .death In the
fire which destroyed the vessel last
Friday.
Charles Hcnrickson, William
Braid, Cecil Price, John Hume and
W. E. Page, and a longshoreman,
whose name was not known, lost
their lives.
Five of the crew, including Captain J. Anderson, the chief engineer,
the mate, the cook and one deckhand, slept in the forepart of the
boat. All these were saved owing to
the fact that the mate, awakened by
the smoke, alarmed his comrades
and escaped to the deck.
Grasping axes, these men made
their way to where tbe other six
members of the crew were penned in
by the flames, which had gained
great headway. The alarm was given
to the cannery, and men from the
shore came to the Tescue also. But
the combined smoke and heat of the
flames drove them back despite
heroic efforts, and they had to seek
the safety of the shore after about
twenty minutes of hopeless battle.
It was thought that not one of the
men imprisoned in the forecastle
could be alive in the dense smoke,
immense clouds of which were pouring from their sleeping quarters, and
in order to prevent the flames from
spreading to the cannery, the steamer, now one great sheet of flame,
was cut adrift. She floated down the
stream, a fiery beacon and funeral
pyre, and the men on shore saw her
ground on the sandheads at the
mouth of the delta.
According to the captain, the men
must have suffocated before the
flames reached them. The mate managed to break through the partition
which penned them in, but they were
evidently unconscious at_lbat time,
as there was no response to his
shouts. He was about to attempt to
enter the burning quarters when the
fire, fanned by a strong breeze,
broke into even greater violence, and
he was driven back, badly scorched.

BURNING SLASH
AND ITS DANGER
Information Relative to the Question
of Protecting the Forests—Rules
Urged Upon Those Who Destroy
Waste Material to Prevent Spread
to Standing Trees.
The Subject Is One of Importance If
the Valuable Timber Resources of
the Province Are to Be Maintained
—Educational Move Along This
Lino.
As/« result ol the encouraging expressions of opinion on the subject
of the feasibility of burning slash in
the logging camps of British Columbia which he received al first hand
from the foremen nnd other practical woodsmen during his recenl
trip up Ihe coast, Chief Forester 11.
R. MacMlllan is sending to every
logging and lumbering company at
present operating In this province—
and there are from three to five
hundred such—a letter in which he
earnestly requests their co-operation
in an effort to solve once and for all
the problem of the disposal of slash
resultant from logging operations.
"Owing to the great density of the
timber stands on the coast and in
portions of the interior of British
Columbia, to the conditions surrounding the lumber industry which
permit of tbe removal from the
■woods of only a very small proportion of the stand, and to the methods
of logging, the amount of slash remaining after logging is at present
excessive," says Mr. MacMlllan.
"Generally also the timber remaining after logging is without further
value, and, since the slash effectually prevents the growth of a valuable
second crop, slash must be first removed if tbe land is to be utilized
in producing another crop of timber.
"I need scarcely point out that by
far the greater portion of the land
in British Columbia is, owing to its
roughness and lack of soil, unsuiled
for agriculture, and the only possible
way in which it can ne made a
steady source of wealth is by (lie
growing of timber. Besides its effect
in preventing the production of a
second crop of timber, slash is universally recognized as a most serious
of all fire hazards and that it is only
a question of time before every slash
area will be set on fire. This being
the case, the evident thing to do is
to burn the slash at such a time and
under such conditions as will, so far
as is humanly possible to determine,
render it certain that fire does not
spread to the adjoining timber.
"Tbe Forest Act of British Columbia does not make the burning of
slash compulsory, although in the
Stales of Oregon and Washington,
where the conditions are identical,
such laws are in effect. The Forest
Act, does, however, empower the
Minister of Lands or the Forest
Board to require owners to construct
a. safe fire-break about any area
of slash and where necessary to protect valuable timber; this provision
of the act will be enforced.
"To be at all safe or effective
against July or August fires firebreaks must consist of a strip from
five to ten feet wide cleared to mineral earth and a strip ten to thirty
feet wide cleared of brush, inside
which ajl dead snags standing within
a distance of 100 feet must, be felled.
"As long as the slash remains,
however, tho danger from fire is still
serious, and  It  Is felt that  it  would ]
than to construct fire-breaks, the
cost of which is as much or more
than that of slash burning.
"A number of loggers in British
Columbia have already adopted the
practice of burning their slash every
year either in the spring or in the
fall, and I hope that others will decide to apply the plan to their operations and take up the matter immediately. The present spring is
backward, and except in high winds,
slash burning may be safely carried
on until the first or second week in
June. While it is impossible to
specify the conditions as to weather
when burning can safely be done or
to describe the methods by which
j the burning can bo most effectively
| accomplished, these matters being
best determined by the men on the
ground, the following general rules
may be of assistance:
"1. Always construct a trail or a
light fire-break round the slashed
area before starting fires. This will
serve to confine the fire and also
permit men to get around it quickly.
"2. Be sure and have enough men
on hand when you start a fire to control the fire if it threatens to spread
beyond the site.
"3. Nev^r start a fire in the morning unless you feel certain that a
strong wind will not arise. The best
time to start a fire is after 4 o'clock
on the afternoon of a calm day, if
the weather is warm and the slash
dry, all .the better.
"4. If the slash area is surrounded
by timber, start fires first on the leeward side if there is a breeze, or on
the uphill side if on a slope. When
the danger of fire spreading beyond
the area to be burned is past, set
fires on the windward side or at the
base of the slope; also whenever
possible take advantage of a breeze
blowing away from green timber.
"5. Burn over the whole area as
quickly as possible. This can be done
by starting fires in a large number
of places.
"0. Keep your- watchman on the
area burned until all fires are out.
Cut down any snags which may be
burning. All fires should be completely out before June IB.
"Experience has shown that slash
can be burned safely at a cost of
from five to twenty cents an acre
and that this expense is fully repaid
by the resulting added safety of the
camp, equipment and surrounding
timber. The rost may be materially
reduced if the policy of annual burning is definitely adopted, since by a
little forethought the superintendent
and foremen can arrange to have
drag and skid roads serve as firebreaks. When it is known where the
boundary of an area to be burned
will lie, it is also a material help to
have the trees felled away from the
green  timber."

of the great shipbuilding firm of
Messrs. Armstrong, Wbitworth &
Co., is ouC
Sir Percy is a Canadian by birth
and he is about to return to the Dominion Co advise on the suitability of
certain Canadians ports for the construction of docks and other engineering works in connection with fuy
ture shipbuilding. He will also consult with the Dominion ministers in
regard to the drydocks to be built
at Halifax, Quebec and Esquimau,
It is understood that the private
lenders for these docks having proved unsatisfactory, the Canadian Government has decided to build    them

itself.
Sir Percy Girouard was born in
Montreal. He joined the Royal Engineers, and making railway construction a specialty, rendered splendid service to Great Britain in
Egypt and South Africa. He built the
railway which took Kitchener to
Khartoum and reorganized the Egyptian railways and when Kitchener
went to South Africa he Immediately
sent for the French-Canadian, who
became commissioner of railways in
tho Transvaal and Orange River Colony, rebuilding what had been destroyed during the war. A few years
in Nigeria and East Africa as chief
of the administration of those colonies, followed, and Sir Percy resigned to go into the * shipbuilding
business.
His withdrawal from the government service gave rise to a controversy as to whether the Imperial
Government paid its servants sufficient to retain them when big salaries were offered by private concerns. Many a man who had rendered invaluable service to the country
has been attracted by the salaries
offering id private life, and most of
the big shipbuilding yards and other
engineering works are now headed
by former officers of the navy and
army.
PORTSMOUTH DOCKYARD.
The £1,000,000 lock at Portsmouth dockyard will be ready for
use within the next few weeks. The
dock is slightly larger than the one
being built here by the Grand Trunk
Pacific. With the exception of the
laying of the blocks, which ie now
proceeding, the lock is complete, but
before it can be used a large mud-
bank opposite the entrance has to be
dredged so as to make a deep channel to the centre of the harbor. The
great lock Is 1000 feet long, 950 feet
over the blocks, and 100 feet wide
at the entrance, and has a depth of
water over the sill at high tide of
thirty-five feet.
