BREWERY WILL BE
BUILT AT ONCE
Strong Company Recently Organized on the Coast
Will Erect Building At Once-Beer Will Be
x   Made Here Before the Year Is Out
Says Robert Kelly Who Is Vice-
President of the Corporation Which Is Behind
the Undertaking
BUILD STREETS IN
NEW HAZELTON
ROBERT KELLY ANNOUNCES IM-
PROVEMENTS WILL BE MADE
IN THE INTERIOR
TOWN.
The Mines in the    Vicinity Are Now-
Looking     Remarkably    Well,
Says the Well-known Rig
Wholesaler.
The B.C. Breweries, a strong company recently organized on this coast,
In which Robert Kelly, of Kelly,
Douglas & Co., is one of the controlling Interests, will have a brewery
in operation here before the end of
the year. This Is the announcement
made by Robert Kelly last night on
his return from New Hazelton, where
he had been looking over the situation there. He is vice-president of the
comr/any which already controls the
Vancouver Brewery and the famous
one In Nanaimo. Other brewing concerns on the coast are to be taken
over and Prince Rupert is to figure
in the enterprise with a brand new
concern.
Mr. Kelly feels that the time Is
ripe for starting here. This view he
held before he came north this time,
but his visit to the city and to the
country along the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific has strengthened his
feeling In this way. He has decided
that there is no time to be lost and
accordingly will urge action upon his
company.
Tbe question of a site has not yet
been decided. That is something to
be gone into carefully, and Henry
Relfle, of Nanaimo, who is the practical manager of the enterprise, will
come north and finally decide upon
the whole matter. Mr. Kelly himself
looked over some sites and is satisfied with some that he saw, but will
not decide in the matter until Mr.
Reifle passes upon them/
The B.C. Breweries has as its
president Clarence Marpole, who is
managing-director as well. It Is
strongly capitalized, and, as mentioned some time ago in these columns, has had in view the starting
of a brewery here. It has been decided at once to begin operations,
however, according to Mr. Kelly's
statement.
It is not to be expected that the
brewery to be built here will be of
the largest class on the start. It 1b
the intention to put In a solid and
substantial foundation, allowing for
the putting In later of a large class
of building. On the start the equipment will be such as to handle the
local trade.
The progress of the city, Mr. Kelly
thinks, ls'^such that the erection of a
brewery to take care of the demands
should not be longer delayed. Added
to this is the demand that is being
created in the interior, which prompts
immediate action on the part of his
company. Mr. Reifle is one of the
most experienced brewers in the
province. Under his practical management the Installation of an up-to-
date brewery is assured In the city.
NOT GUILTY OF WRONGDOING
Ontario      Ministers      Who      Were
Charged With Improper Conduct
Cleared by Vote of House.
The Legislature of Ontario adopted the report of the committee on
privileges and elections which exonerated Sir James Whitney and Hon.
W. J. Hanna of any Improper conduct in connection with the settlement of the Taylor-Scott Company's
claim against the Government. It also
passed an amendment attached to the
motion for adoption condemning
Wm. Proudfoot, M.P.P., who laid the
charges. The resolution was as follows:
"And this House deems It to be its
duty to declare and place on record
its unqualified condemnation and
censure of the conduct of the member for Centre Huron, in putting before this House charges of a serious
character, reflecting upon the honor
of two ministers of the Crown, and
which charges were shown by sworn
testimony of witnesses called by the
said member for Centre Huron to be
untrue and without foundation, and
this House further censures and condemns the conduct of the said member for Centre Huron In refusing to
be sworn and to give evidence with
relation of his said charges when
called upon to do so."
This action followed a prolonged
and acrimonious debate. Mr. Hanna
was given a rousing reception when
he arose to address the House.
New Hazelton is to have improved
streets. Robert Kelly,, who Is interested in the townsite there, and Mr.
Hayward, who was agent for the
townsite, returned to the city last
evening from a visit to New Hazelton. They went fully into the question of the future of the place and
the improvements that were needed
there. Mr. Kelly says that it is the
intention to have some streets put in
at once. There will be plank roads
put to Harvey & McKinnon's Hotel,
now under construction, and the various other parts of the place.
In addition to this, communication
is to be made with the bridge that
is planned to connect with the
mines, which promise so well. Mr.
Kelly is well pleased with the outlook at the place.
In company with J. W. Stewart,
Mr. Kelly visited the Standard Mine
and saw the work that is in progress
there. He does not pretend to be a
mining man or to know much about
minerals, but he says that one did
not need to know mining to understand that there was a great wealth
in the workings. He feels that the
mines will show up well and will accordingly make New Hazelton an important distributing point.

FROM HAZELTON
PIONEER MERCHANT    IS    WELL
SATISFIED WITH THE BUSINESS IN THE NEW
INTERIOR.
He Is Doing n Very Large Business
at tbe Head of Steel—The Front
Pleases the   Well-known
Citizen.
Among those who reached the city
front the interior last night was W,
Lynch, the well-known merchant.
He has been taking charge of the
store that he has opened at New
Hazelton and reports that business
is good in the interior.
The mines, he feels, are destined
to Stake Hazelton a most important
distributing centre. He is satisfied
that'there are six or eight mines already assured to do business with
New Hazelton. These will, he feels
satisfied, have good gangs of men
employed and will make flourishing
properties.
Tie trade from the point is good,
and .with the rapid development in
the |hterior there seems every assurance that there will'be a continuation of business. He will take
back a carload of stock on his return on Saturday to meet the demands of the business there.

Charming    Social Event at the    Delightful Home Recently Built on
Borden Street.
On Wednesday evening, Baron and
Baroness de Bernls gave a delightful
dance at their new home on Borden
street. The guests were invited for
10:45 and at 11 o'clock a very pretty
old-fashioned cotillion was in full
swing. The members of Mr. Werner's
orchestra were seated in the den, the
sliding doorsrtiif which were thrown
back so that -the music could be well
heard by thdgejdaneing in the spacious hall ajgijjeception room. The
immaculate house, with its tapestry
burlap and beautiful panelled woodwork of native fir, made a fitting
background for the bevy of pretty
women and exquisite gowns seen
there. With surprising patience and
good taste, the beautiful hostess had
decorated the whole house with festoons of paper flowers and satin rib-
The poultry and egg producing
business is one that is yet In its infancy in Prince Rupert and in consequence the city has to depend upon
shipments from the south for its
supply of fresh eggs. There are reasons for believing that the vicinity
of Prince Rupert is well adapted for
tbe raising of poultry and that there
will soon be a large supply of eggs
to meet the local demands.
One resident of the city has started in the business on a large scale.
This is I. Director, formerly engageo
in the drygoods business here, but
who concluded that he would prefer
to live the simpler life which poultry
farming calls for. He accordingly
built his home on Eleventh avenue,
well out towards Shawatlans Passage, and here he has on his four
lots made provision for quite extensive poultry yards and houses.
He has put up substantial houses
for the hens and in connection with
them has an artificially heated breeding and hatching room. Here he has
upwards of a hundred young chicks
now adapting themselves to their
new surroundings. He is hatching
more continually, and will soon have
a very large stock of chickens.
In the pens for the adults there
are about four hundred hens, and
Mr. Director is taking in a very good
supply of eggs a day. He acknowledges that the work is new and that
he has had lots of lessons to learn
by experience, but the work is interesting and he is well satisfied
with the results.
What Is being done on Eleventh
avenue is but the beginning of what
should be a thriving industry in this
part of the province. The raising of
poultry on some of the islands near
by Prince Rupert Is being carried
out in a smaller way and with good
results. »
bons, Interspersed with many interesting photos, some of which depicted
the Baron's prowess in the saddle
when winning the Calgary jumping
competition, and when in his cavalry
regiment.
The first event of the evening was
the breaking of a large bowl of
sweets in tbe middle of the floor,
which heralded the house-warming.
This was done by Mrs. Hubert Ward
and Mr. Durant with a precision and
swing which told of many a long
drive on the golf links.
A little later, after some dancing,
the hostess and Mrs. Hulloiik-Webster
appeared on the staircase with bas-

coast. The cost of the work is estimated to be $2,500,000, but it is safe
to expect that the estimate will be
exceeded before the dock is in place.
All night long, as we'l as during
the day-time, the work of levelling
off the waterfront for the gigantic
works Is going forward. Archie Mc-
Dougall has now two steam shovels
installed at the place and is not allowing any of the good weather to
pass without adding tho fullest quota
of the filling to the undertaking. His
aim Is either to have the rock piles
completely removed or very nearly
cleared away by the end of tho year.
Those who have followed his course
exception of those that will be required for the shipbuilding shed. This
latter, however, is not. in a place
where filling will need to be done.
On the contrary, rock will have to be
excavated for that work, and this is
in progress.
The filling in of the tide flats
about the cement pillars is also
progressing. The care which must be
taken not to displace or damage
theso bases calls for special work in
tho filling. False woodwork Is put In
place to allow  the dump curs  to be
taken directly over the   pillars   and
dumping Is done all about the pillars
simultaneously.  This avoids any ex-

happy faculty of living up to his
plans. This was shown In connection
with the tunnel near Mile 44, when
he completed the hole through the
rock within the time expected, in
spite of the many drawbacks he had
to suffer.
Mr. McDougall Is handicapped a
little just now owing to the fact that
he has not as many dump cars as he
could make use of in the work. This
will be overcome shortly, however.
At present he has one steam shovel
working at night and the other in the
day-time.
The past few weeks has seen a vast
amount of work done In connection
with the foundation work. Tho heavy
concrete piles that are to carry the
Immense structures In the yards are
though It calls for a lot of extra work
on the pari of the contractor.
The cement culvert which Is to
carry the waters of Hays Creek under the fill Is practically finished.
This great waterway is twelve feet in
height on the Inside, with a width of
ten feet, so that there will be no danger as to the capacity of it to take
care of all the water that passes
through it. This culvert, put in by the
Stlrrat Company, was carried out
without much trouble and completed
quickly, taking advantage of the
tides.
Preparations are now under way
for the cement pillars that are to be
constructed at the end of the pier
which is to carry the great crane
used to raise heavy    material    from
now practically all in place with the j vessels or to lower It into the holds
Work in the construction line is now |
being centred about the shipbuilding
platform and the foundations for the
shed that is to be erected there.
These foundations have to be exceptionally well built in order to carry
the tremendous weight that will be
put upon them.
So well advanced Is the work now
that it will be but a short time until
the facilities exist for the landing ... ,

Before the docks In the south are
well commenced, Prince Rupert will
have a complete drydock and shipbuilding plant that will rival anything now located on tho Pacific.
Constructed as It Is to be, the opportunity exists for extensions to the
dock from time to. time that will
maintain Its lead among the facilities of the coast. The works are an
evidence of far-seeing on the part of
the railway company In Its efforts to
make Prince Rupert the first port on
the Pacific.

to the dancers. Later Mrs. Angus
Stewart distributed toys which would
have stocked an emporium for Santa
Claus, and Mrs. Durant bore fairy
wands. A magnificent supper was
served In the dining-room throughout
the evening.
At one stage of the eveniug a
spontaneous burst of enthusiasm
prompted the guests to sing the
Marseillaise. The well-known air was
' caught up by first one, then another,
and even if some of the words were
missing the heartiness of the sound
made up for it. Never, since young
de Lisle composed the hymn in 1792,
was it sung with more good-will. A
very memorable evening came to a
happy conclusion with a final "valtz"
mid the guests departed feeling that
Prince Rupert has gained a charming
hostess and a lino type of citizen.

THE GAG IS REMOVED.
After patient endurance for several
months the majority of the members
of the Canadian House of Commons
have refused to be any longer gagged
by the minority. They have asserted
their right to announce by vote their
approval of the Government Navy
Bill, says the News-Advertiser. The
power to make this declaration has
been heretofore withheld from the
majority by the assumed authority of
the minority, which has claimed the
privilege of talking all day and all
night all the year round, and so
gagging the remainder of the Parliament. It is a rather curious thing
that this tyrannical group of members, which had determined to
monopolize in this way the whole
power of Parliament, are now bitterly complaining that they have not
been allowed to gag the majority as
long as Parliament should be in session. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his
former minister of public works are
actually cherishing a grievance
against the duly constituted majority
of Parliament because the latter refused to remain any longer in dumb
and helpless subjection, and insisted
on recording their opinions on a great
public question. It is a singular grievance. The assurance of the most arbitrary member of the old family compact party was far less arrogant.
But in spite of the claim of an arbitrary and irresponsible clique to the
right to dominate the policy of the
country which recently ordered them
out of office, the people at large will
commend those Conservatives who
have refused to wear the Liberal gag
more than six months.
BREAKS WITH
THEOLOGIANS
REV. PROF. JACKSON, OF TORONTO, DOES NOT ACCEPT GENESIS    AS    HISTORICALLY
CORRECT.
He Discounts the Present Beliefs and
Would   Not Attach    Too    Much
Importance     to  the    First
Chapters.
Rev. Prof. George Jackson, of Victoria University, Toronto, who is to
leave Toronto on May 24 to assume
his new duties at Didsbury College,
.Manchester, England, gave two
notable addresses recently.
In the morning he preached the
Victoria bacclaureate sermon at Convocation Hall,.-taking for the theme
the old and orthodox text, "The Just
Shall Live by Faith." In the afternoon he addressed the Men's Bible
Class at Sherbourne Street Methodist
Church In the role of the higher
critic, and provoked the wonder, and

at times the indignation, of his audience.
In his address Prof. Jackson referred to the first eleven cnapters ot
Genesis as "antiquarian lumber," and
added, "Why not throw them out?"
One of the audience jumped up and
remarked rather warmly: "If you
were born again you'd believe the
Bible from lid to lid."
Discussion followed the address of
the Professor and many there were
who disagreed with the views of the
noted divine.
Here are some of the things Dr,
Jackson said during the course of his
fifty-minute address:
"The first eleven chapters of Genesis are antiquarian lumber. Why not
throw them out?"
"As Abraham Lincoln said: 'You
can fool all the people some of the
time and some of the people all the
time, but you can't fool all the people
all the time.' "
"We know nothing of the first
man or of the origin of man."
"The first eleven chapters of Genesis have no scientific value. They
have moral and spiritual worth."
"Sacred writers twisted, varnished
and embellished old stories until poor
earthly raiments became white and
glistened, just as Shakespeare took
the hemp of an old Italian yarn and
with magic fingers weaved it into a
cloth of gold."
"These narratives (the firBt eleven
chapters of Genesis) weren't written
until milleniums had passed, and as
there is no contemporary evidence of
their authenticity, I cannot accept
them as true."
"The first eleven chapters of Genesis are legendary."
"The creation and the flood narratives are reproductions of Jewish traditions."
"One chapter says Methusaleh
lived to be nine hundred and sixty-
nine years old. Am I to believe that?
Historical statements can only be accepted when there is historical evidence of their veracity."
"I do think Abraham, Isaac, Jacob
and Joseph were real men, but I refuse to believe that they did and said
precisely what the Bible says they
did and said, though I have no doubt
of the substantial accuracy of the
narratives.
"Hundreds of years elapsed after
the time these men were on earth
and the time the story of their doings
was written. It is absolutely impossible to have accuracy in that event."
"Between Abraham, who lived in
2000 B.C., and our earliest records
of Abraham, there was a period two
hundred years longer than the period
which separates us from the time of
William the Conqueror. In the face
of that, can we call Genesis history?"
"The history of the Jews is full of
uncertainties. We're completely in
dark concerning them.
"I don't want to disturb anybody.
The man I want to talk to is the man
who Is disturbed already."
"Whether we're orthodox or
heretodox matters little. It is what
we are to Jesus and He to us that
determines our standing in the
Christian Church."
Before proceeding with his address, Prof. Jackson said: "If what I
say hurts you, take your hats and
quietly withdraw; I shall not be offended." Everybody stayed till the
Benediction.
At the conclusion of his address,
the Professor said he hoped no man
would respect the first eleven chapters of Genesis less because of anything he had said.
Replying to a question, many of
which were raised by the audience,
Rev. Mr. Jackson said there was no
hint of a Trinity In the word "us"
which appears in Genesis. The doctrine of a Trinity was essentially a

W.J. BRYAN AND
THE PRESIDENT
THE    FORMER LEADER OF    THE
DEMOCRATS IN    THE    POST
HE OCCUPIES AT WASH-
INGTON.
The Question Is liaised As to Whether   President   Wilson    Will
Dominate in Letters of
State.
Under the traditions of our politics
the secretary of state is the premier
post in the cabinet, yet Its importance
is curiously dependent upon the disposition of the president. A- brilliant
secretary In the service of an easygoing president has a great office,
but under a president with the disposition to have a personal hand In
foreign affairs It may be made almost a nullity, writes the Washington correspondent of the San Francisco Argonaut. It is a less independent post than any other in the
cabinet,, because the work of the
state department relates directly to
matters with which the president, if
he be active-minded, will surely have
a personal interest Now it is in his
correspondence with foreign governments that a secretary of state may
shine.
All the great secretaries, including
Webster and Blain, where they
achieved fame in office, won it
through their diplomatic letters. Will
Mr. Wilson allow Mr. Bryan to conduct the more deliberate and serious
correspondence of the department of
state? I question it. Mr. Bryan Is a
florid, turgid, inexact writer. He has
a style founded on an Omaha journalistic experience and developed under the dubious discipline of campaign oratory. On the other hand, Mr.
Wilson is a writer of exact and polished English. Whatever else may be
said of him, his literary art is the
sort of work which falls to the state
department well nigh perfect. Now
when Mr. Bryan irepares a thunderbolt In the form of a diplomatic letter In his best Nebraska manner, Mr.
Wilson will turn sick at the stomach,
and if I judge bis character rightly,
he will sharpen a critical blue pencil.
I venture the prediction that
when it comes to important matters
of international concern Mr. Wilson
will be his own secretary of state.
Just as with his own typewriter he
worked out the letter to the Spanish-
American republics last week, he
will "do" the really serious letter-
writing in relation to foreign affairs
during his term In the presidency. It
Is Impossible that a man of his precise taste and powers of expression
should be satisfied with such letters
as Mr. Bryan will write. And a few
experiences of the blue pencil will
surely make Mr. Bryan restive.
There is no form of vanity quite so
sensitive to affront as that of the
man pleased with his own literary
performances. And there is no writer
half so well pleased with himself as
the man who combines a florid taste
with loose habits of expression.
Mr.  Woodland, representing    the
Imperial Oil Company, is in the city.

J. E. GRIFFITH,

Department of Public Works,
Victoria, B.C., April 10, 1913. al7
Already in Prince Rupert a small
committee of railway men have been
at work endeavoring to persuade the
railway men's branch of the Y.M.C.A.
to become interested in our city. The
time is coming when large numbers
of railway men will be congregated
here, and no effort will be spared
to induce the Grand Trunk Pacific officials to include in their plans a spot
for a railroad Y.M.C.A.
The following account of the last
annual International convention of
Y.M.C.A. men held In Chicago testifies to the good work it is achieving:
Sixteen hundred men—brakemen,
firemen, high officials, conductors,
train despatchers—gathered in the
most informal fellowship to confer
concerning the interests of their religious-social organization. On Sunday they marched In a body to
church behind a band playing "Onward, Christian Soldiers." Eight railroad presidents and twelve vice-
presidents attended the opening banquet, and President Sidley expressed
his doubt whether there was In existence anywhere a platform on which
employer and employee met with such
mutual esteem and profit. President
Stevens of the Chesapeake & Ohio
announced that every division point
and terminal on his line was provided
with a Railroad Y.M.C.A. building;
that these had cost the road $200,-
000 and were maintained at an annual expense of $10,000. Another
speaker quoted the late president of
the Pennsylvania, George B. Roberts,
as saying at the last meeting of directors which he attended:
"When we made our first appropriation for the Railroad Association we were ashamed to let it be
known and put the item under the
head 'Repairs.' But I want to say
that no stockholders' money that we
have spent, not even for steel rails,
has been more necessary and useful."
There was a good telegram from
that great friend of young men, Mr|
James Stokes, to those present. He
paid a tribute to Mr. Cornelius Van-
derbilt, who first foresaw the opportunities of the wont and pushed the
organization around the world as far
as India.
"I prefer to travel," said Mr. Van-
derbilt once, "In a train driven by an
engineer with a Bible in his pocket."
And Mr. Stokes added thereto:
"The man at the throttle, looking
out at the darkness and facing death
at any moment, needs a short, quick
creed, 'The blood of Jesus Christ
cleanses us from all sin.' That was
the creed on which George Williams
founded our Association, and if we
give it up the Association might as
well be given up."
There are 1,700,000 men employed
in American railway transportation,
and ro better method for providing
for their religious needs could be devised than that of the railway Y.M.
C.A. At Chicago appeals came for extension of these privileges to the 600,-
000 men on electric lines, the 50,-
000 in construction camps, and the
railroaders of the new lines in
China. These and other requests
will not remain unheeded.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL.
GOOD YEAR IS
THE OUTLOOK
THE FINANCIAL POST SAYS THAT
EV ERYTHING    POINTS   TO
NORMAL CONDITIONS IN
THE WEST.
The Prospects, Says the   Paper, Are
Most    Gratifying All    Round—
Tbe   Crops Promise to   Be
Excellent.
A good normal year's business Is
Ihe summary of The Financial Post
In a recent article on the business
ontlook.
It would appear to The Post that
ivith the turn of the tide in respect to
money conditions business generally
during the next few months ought to
be normal in volume. There does not
appear to be any serious apprehension on the part of manufacturers as
to the immediate outlook. Most of
.them have orders ahead. To this rule,
of course, there are one or two exceptions, as will always be the case;
but, speaking generally, adds the
journal, there is no reason to anticipate otherwise than that business will
continue in the same volume as during 1912.
During the past few years manufacturers and wholesale houses have
looked for a very substantial increase
every year, but so far during the
first three months of the current
year there is not the promise of the
same increase as that taking place in
the years preceding the present year.
The fact that the volume of last
year's business was exceptional ought
to be clearly kept in mind, and that
if the same volume can be maintained
this year it will rank as a good year.
The monetary situation, continues
The Post, does not now present any
difficulties in the way of business
continuing satisfactorily as at the
present time. Reports from the Canadian West are to the effect that
seeding is proceeding, and that the
weather is normal. In the south and
western districts of Saskatchewan
seeding last year commenced about
March 28, and in the northern districts by April 5. This year the commencement was a little later. It is
generally conceded that the best seeding time for wheat is in the latter
part of April and the first week in
May.
From the facts which during the
week have come to the knowledge of
The Post it is evident that the expenditure i lanned for new buildings
in Canada will be less in the current
year than in 1912. This does not
mean that the extent of actual building will be less, but that projects for
new structures, the material for
which has not been specified or or1
dered, will be less in number. At the
present time steel structural plants
are busy, and have orders ahead that
will keep them busy for some time.
This condition is general, but it is
due to their having to supply material
for buildings planned and financed
during the course of last year.
It would be impossible to go ahead
with the building of new factory
plants without the necessary capital,
which is not easy to get with money
conditions as they are at the present
time. The explanation Is that United
States capital is coining to Canada.
Many of the United States firms are
quite familiar with ups and downs,
and the "downs" which are being experienced at the present time by
those affected by tight money are not
feared  by them.     They are offering
money and investing    it themselves
freely at the present time.
Latest reports from the West indicate a buoyant feeling, and the steady
business community welcomes the
diminution of speculation.
Given a normal crop and a normal
volume of immigration, concludes
The Post, both of which are likely to
eventuate, there appears to be no
reason to anticipate other than that
business during the present year will
be normal, so far as can be judged
from conditions as they exist at the
present time.

SPORTS
DERBY FAVORITE.
Craganour, Mr. Bower Ismay's bay
colt, favorite for ihe Derby, to be decided at Epsom the first week In
June, which has received marked
support In ante-post betting the past
few months, is likely to go out in
price, and it is possible that he will
be displaced from the top line in the
quotations as a result of his failure
to capture the Union Jack stakes at
Liverpool recently, which race was
won by Flippant.
From information received it is
understood that while Craganour has
wintered well, he has not developed
to the extent anticipated. Flippant,
which belongs to Mr. E. Hulton,
clearly showed the way In the Union
Jack Stakes, and despite Craganour's
challenge, won by a length. Too
much notice should not, however, be
paid to this failure of the Derby
favorite. In past years it has happened that colts behind in the early
spring have shown woffderful advance as the day for the blue ribbon
event of the turf approached. A
striking case in point concerns the
victory of Spearmint in 1906, who
was woefully behind earlier in the
year.
Craganour and Flippant will meet
in the Derby and St. Leger, and it
will be seen whether the former
"comes on" or whether the latter Is
a much better colt than he has been
given credit for so far. Third in the
Liverpool race was Cock of the Rock,
belonging to Mr. Hall Walker. This
colt will have to improve immensely
to figure in the money in the great
event for he was beaten by Craganour
by four lengths.
The result of the race will probably
mean that Shogun will be installed
favorite for the Epsom event. Still,
if one can take Craganour's two-
year-old form as an indication, he
may "come back." It is regrettable
that so many of Desmond's stock appearing to prove the best classic performers of their years, have fallen
down at the critical period. Will
Craganour brush aside the fatality
which has usually attached to Desmond's progeny?

Prince Rupert's
Industrial Annex
This industrial addition to Prince Rupert comes now at a time
when opportunity is greatest. Prince Ruperl and the entire great
.Northern British Columbia country arc on the eve of a tremendous
movement. Values will go up remarkably during the present year
and the years immediately following. Port Edward prices arc Jow
now.    This is the time to buy.
LIVERPOOL DOCK.
Now that Prince Rupert is to have
one of the largest floating docks in
the world, some notes about the
Gladstone dock at Liverpool, which
Is the largest graving dock in existence, will be of interest. The capacity
is about 50 million gallons, and the
cost was about £500,000, or about
that of the proposed dock here.
Work began at Seaforth in September, 1910, and after the necessary bank had been erected to keep
the water out, in January, 1911, the
work of excavation was begun on
the shore proper.
A commodious dock over 1000 feet
in length has been constructed, lined
with half.a million tons of concrete,
with granite coping. ■
The' striking feature lies in the
fact that the new receptacle may be
used not only as a graving dock, but
as a wet dock, and that achievement
is an interesting one.
The ordinary graving dock is constructed in quite a different way
from the wet dock. The sides slope
and are" provided with steps to facilitate the shoring of the vessel. The
Gladstone dock" is planned differently; it is so constructed that the
giant vessel can either discharge
cargo, as in the ordinary wet dock,
or be repaired when the water has
been run off.
Exceptional circumstances necessitated tho experiment, the plans for
which, prepared by A. G. Lyster,
were carried out by W. 11. Jones.
Dock gates were found to be impracticable. Two sets would have
had to be fixed, and to obviate this
it was decided to provide a sliding
caisson. The caisson, when ot In use,
Is kept in a chamber that runs ofr
the dock, and Is operated with ease.
In another chambc/ the pumping
**kkk*kk*kk**kk******
machinery is installed. A commodious place, very like a small
dock, it will be fitted with five
Diesel engines, each of a thousand
horse-power. The employment of oil
engines is an innovation, for all the
other pumping machinery on the
dock estate is dependent on steam.
It is the only dock in the world
capable of accommodating the new
Cunarder, the Aqultania, which was
launched  recently.
There are liners of more than
30 000 tons which, although they
are calling forth all this big expenditure on dock accommodation,
are paying less In dues than cargo
ships of only 10,000 tons, for which
no additional accommodation is
necessary. This has always irritated
dock authorities, and may easily
sway their policy when fresh calls
are made for new docks. The British
Merchant Shipping Act of 1907 contains provisions, however, which,
when they become operative on January 1, 1914, will alter the position
somewhat by authorizing the payment of dues on a different basis.
South of the Gladstone docks a
start has been made on the vestibule
or half-tide dock. This dock has a
river lock entrance 870 feet long
and 130 feet wide, and access will
also be provided to the Hornby dock,
which is alongside.
Out of the half-tide dock, two
branch docks will run, and amongst
the double-storey sheds to be provided will be one about 1465 feet in
length.
To the northward of Gladstone
dock still further accommodation is
promised in the future, so that the
development of Liverpool's docks is
not likely to cease for many years to
come.
TOOK FISH SOUTH.
The Venture sailed yesterday
morning for the south with mixed
cargo. Among her freight was a consignment of fifty tons of halibut
from the Atlin Fisheries.
CELTIC BROUGHT COAL.
The steamer Celtic, Captain Fin-
