MAYOR PATTULLO
GOING TO LONDON
The City Council Net Last Night and Authorized
, The Sale Of Treasury Certificates If The
Chief Executive Officer Thinks Advisable-Conversion Of Debentures into Certificates Has
Been Authorized
Mayor Pattullo will leave in the
course of a few days for London in I
connection with the placing of the
bonds of the city. It is his hope that
he will be able to place them in the
Old Land and with that object in
view will leave for the British capital any day now. This information
Was contained in a message that
was received at the City Hall today
and the contents of the telegram
were made known at a special meeting of the council held last evening
In the City Hall.
The Bank of Montreal, which has
been acting as the agent of the city
In the financial arrangements that
it has, has suggested to the mayor
that he should go to London, but
that, he should try to place short-
time certificates rather than try to
place the ordinary debentures of the
city, as is the wish of the mayor.
It is known that Mayor Pattullo is
himself opposed to treasury certificates unless it is absolutely necessary to so raise money. These treasury certificates are for a period of
not more than three years and are
issued only with the consent of the
Government at Victoria. They are
intended to tide over a stringency
in the money markets until such
time as the markets revive and the,
ordinary debentures can be placed I
to advantage.
The Bank of Montreal, with its
finger on the pulse of the money
markets, is of the opinion that the
wisest course will be to sell certificates and redeem these a little later
on when the market rights itself.
The mayor will not place them unless
he is' absolutely sure that there is
no' possibility of placing the debentures at a price that will give a fair
return to the city.
The letter that was received from
the mayor last night read as follows:
Montreal, Que., May 27, 1913.
Acting Mayor,
Prince Rupert, B.C.:
Bank thinks it, necessary to
finance temporarily by treasury certificates and advise us to go to London. Therefore pass bylaw immediately authorizing issue of treasury
certificates under Acb-of 1912 for all
debentures authorized by bylaw not
already covered by former treasury
certificates bylaw, and send to Government copies of bylaw and ask for
immediate consent, stating this
course recommended • by Bank of
Montreal. Ask Williams to carefully
draw bylaw, following, bylaw 109.
Cable me care Bank, London, when
bylaw passed and again when Government consent given. Also pass
resolution authorizing me sell certificates and cable when passed.
Forward me London certified copy
bylaw and resolution. Leave for London In few days. Will wire date of
sailing.
T.   D.   PATTULLO.
Acting on this, action was taken
by the council to Introduce the necessary bylaws to cover the points that
were raised by the mayor. The authorization for the IsBue of treasury
certificates to the amount of $1,371,-
000 in English Currency carrying 5
per cent, interest was made by the
council by bylaw. There was, more
over, another bylaw providing for
$735,437.73, also in    English    cur
rency, to be disposed of by the
mayor as treasury certificates.
The Government will be asked to
sanction the issue which under the
statute is necessary. The council will
hold a meeting again on Saturday
evening when the business will be
far enough advanced to allow of action being taken.
The acting mayor, Aid. Naden, in
addressing the council said that he
hoped that it would not be necessary
for the" mayor to dispose of treasury
certificates. He felt, however, that it
was a wise move to give the authority that was asked for, so that
if it was absolutely necessary to
make the move it could be done. He
felt that the mayor would avoid the
sale of treasury certificates if at all
possible.
CANADIAN OUTLOOK
FINANCIALLY
SIR
THOMAS    SHAUGHNESSY
TAKES AN OPTIMISTIC
VIEW    OF    THE
SITUATION.
Was  At  Home.
Mrs. A. E. McMaster was at home
'yesterday afternoon to her many
friends. She entertained in honor of
her sister, Miss Gertrude Nelson,
who is visiting her at present. Mrs.
McMaster will accompany her sister
east when she leaves.
Board of Trade.
The general monthly meeting of
the Prince Rupert Board of Trade
will be held in the City Hall, Friday
-evening, May 30, at 8 o'clock sharp.
The Head of the C.P.R.    Expresses
Himself With  Regard to the
West and   Its Opening
Up Now.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, the
president of the greatest railway of
the Empire, in the course of an interview, expressed with characteristic moderation his views on Canada's financial outlook and on his
company's part in promoting national progress.
It is thirty years or more since
plain Thomas Shaughnessy—as he
then was—was selected, as the
cleverest purchasing agent on the
American continent, to concentrate
his genius on the infant transportation enterprise of which today his is
the moving and controlling mind. It
was Sir Thomas's extraordinary economic skill that made the Canadian
Pacific Railway, as we know it, possible, and it is the same skill, with
an added wealth of experience, that
accounts for its present success.
There can be few corporations in the
world possessing or controlling such
enormous territory that has a capital
comparatively so small.
"I don't suppose there is any place
where a railway has been a greater
factor in development than has the
C.P.R. in our country," said Sir
Thomas, "because it opened up thousands of miles of territory that was
practically uninhabited, and, by
furnishing access, encouraged settlement and developed agriculture,
with results that are known
throughout  the world.
Monthly Pay Roll of $4,000,000.
"Naturally, a large expenditure Is
necessary to construct, and later to
maintain and operate a railway, and
in our own case this has provided
a livelihood for a very large number
of workers, who in turn spend their
money for the necessities of life, and
so build up trade."
Sir Thomas added that the wages
roll of the company at the present
time averaged a million pounds a
month, while the number of employees was, normally, between 80,-
000 and 85,000, but at times was
increased to as many as 120,000.
Canada at the moment, Sir
Thomas contends, is financially in
much the same position as every
other progressive country in the
world. He does not think that the
tightness of money In the Dominion
is exceptional, but naturally the Investor is cautious In putting out his
money because of the disturbed conditions that have prevailed, though

What Will Make Prince
Rupert Great?
Removed over 500 miles from rail communication with tbe
outside world, Prince Rupert fias not had the advantages that less
favored places situated Within easy reach of railways have bad in
being brought prominently before tbe eyes of the world. This has
beeu a drawback in some respects, but when the railway line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific is coupled up the city will have an additional advantage from this very fact that it is removed some distance from the trodden paths. This Is true because Prince Rupert
is the commercial centre of a tremendously rich territory that, constitutes a kingdom in itself. This area will all be brought into close
touch with the city and make this one of the greatest ports and
emporiums in the trade routes of the world. It is a territory that
has the most varied resources. The industries that will be represented in the opening up of this wealthy country are such that any
one of them would alone constitute sufficient to ensure a great
capital in Prince Rupert. The enumeration of some of these will
serve to call to the attention of residents some of the riches that
lie as yet only partially known in the great hinterland through
which the Grand Trunk Pacific is building or which will be
brought into close touch through the building up of a commercial
and industrial centre here, or that are being developed in connection with the sea that abounds in fish in these northern latitudes.
The following at once come to mind:
In the waters off the port of Prince Rupert the greatest fishing
wealth of the world Is being now developed on a commercial basis.
In halibut, cod and other varieties of deep sea fish no other part of
the world has greater possibilities. In addition to this, there is the
Balmon fishing In the northern waters that will find its centre in
Prince Rupert. The waters of Alaska abound in fish also of the best
quality, and Prince Rupert is tho natural market or shipping point
for this. The industry today is giving employment to hundreds of
men. it will employ thousands as time goes on.
The Grand Trunk Pacific passes in its route throughout British
Columbia the greatest areas of farm and ranching land that the
Province of British Columbia possesses. This is not any fanciful
dream. In the opinion of W. E. Scott, the deputy minister of agriculture, who made a tour through the Naas and the Skeena river
valleys a year ago, there is in that part alone the greatest area of
farm land in the province and he ventured the statement that it
was the best area for the purpose in the province. These valleys
are near to Prince Rupert and will become of prime importance
in connection with the development of the northern capital. They
are not the only portions of the country that are to be tributary in
a farming way to the city. The Bulkley and all the valleys that
connect up with it and the great tablelands of the Peace and its
tributaries will all pour their wealth into Prince Rupert to be
here consumed or shipped to the markets of the world.
The mining industry will be one of importance. This has already been recognized by the great companies like the Granby Copper Company, which has spent millions upon a single mine at
Granby Bay, within easy reach of this city, and upon the smelter
that is being erected there to take care of the ore that is being
produced. This is the beginning only of great things in a mining
way. There are in the interior copper, silver-lead, and other mineral products that will astonish the world it is expected. The gold
df the Peace River, the Manson Creek District and the Cassiar
will all receive a stimulus from the construction of the railway
line and the expediting of the means of reaching the properties.
While the quartz mining will be important, there is every reason for expecting that in the matter of .coal this area of the
province will far exceed the south. In Groundhog there is a coal .
deposit of anthracite that promises, in the opinion of the best informed engineers that have visited the location, to rival the famous
beds of Pennsylvania. The area seems unlimited. There are other
coal areas that promise well also. It will be only a matter of a
short time after the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific until
there will be connection given with these deposits and the city of
Prince Rupert will have an adequate supply of fuel.
In timber the city will have another valuable industry. The
forests of the north have not yet been touched. They abound in
hemlock of the very best quality and which will soon become one
of the most valuable of the woods of commerce. Spruce of the best
quality is plentiful, and the cedar is unexcelled on the coast. Then
in the matter of pulp woods there are immense openings for mills
that will manufacture pulp and eventually paper. The timber industry will be one of the latest to be developed owing to the lack
of transportation facilities with the prairies, the great market for
the supply.
New British Columbia, it would appear, In an agricultural and
fruit-growing sense is to become the Ontario of the West. It will
be the home of thousands of farmers engaged in mixed farming. In
a fishing sense it will be the Grimsby or the Gloucester of the Pacific Coast. In mining it seems destined to set a new pace, as it
combines the riches of all the other rich mining centres of the
West. Nature seems, in a mineral sense, to have been most prodigal in its bestowal of riches here, for it dumped off all kinds In
large measure.

START TRACK
LAYING SATURDAY
Bridges Have Been Completed At End Of Steel
And General Supt. Mehan Will Have Equipment Moved Across Today Ready For
Start Down Bulkley Valley The
Following Day-Expects to
Make Good Time
By Saturday, General Superintendent Mehan of the Grand Trunk Pacific will get his gangs at work laying track again in tbe direction of
Fort George. The last of the three
bridges that have been delaying the
construction of track for some
months has been completed. Yesterday the bridge gang completed its
work there and the general superintendent will have the equipment conveyed across today, so that by tbe
end of the week there will be a start
made in laying steel again.
There will be a clear run of fourteen miles before there is any other
obstacle. At the end of that distance
a bridge will be encountered which
may delay the track laying perhaps
a month.    There will after that    be
little to stop them for some distance
down  the  Bulkley.
It Is expected that there will be
something like a record made in the
matter of track laying along the
route through the Bulkley Valley
this summer. Mr. Mehan is determined to have the work go along
quickly and aboul. two miles of track
a day will be laid by bis men.
The weather conditions in the interior have been somewhat hindering so far this spring owing to the
rain. A change of conditions may be
expected with the advance of the
season and witli it a corresponding
ability to crowd tbe work along. On
all hands there is a determination
to lose no time in completing the
line.

FOR TEN YEARS
HONNA TRAIL.
Several Queen Charlotte residents
availed themselves, during tbe last
few days, to make a trip over the
trail running to the Honna River,
says the Queen Charlotte News. This
excellently constructed pathway
takes one through a pathway, the
natural beauties o_f which are to be
compared only to the world-famed
Stanley  Park,  Vancouver.
Open timber, with here and there
a stretch of greensward, the district
offers alluring inducements to tho
tourist who cares for and appreciates
the benefits to be derived from
daily rambles In Its sylvan glades.
Here one may gather the Ice-cold

Cy Warman and Fred Schaefer
leave this morning for the south after making a tour of the north. The
trip along the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific was an eye-opener to
the two. Mr. Schaefer has had the opportunity in this part of the country
of seeing at first hand the great possibilities of the city and the interior
that is to be one of the greatest
regions on the continent. He returns
to San Francisco impressed very
deeply with this district and the result of his visit will be shown In a
series of articles appearing in the
Scrlpps-McRae papers, which arc
very numerous west of Chicago and
which are allied with the United
Press Service.
In New Westminster will be held
a celebration on June 2 of the completion of ten years of Conservative
government in British Columbia. All
members of the Government expect
to be in New Westminster for the
occasion and to participate in tbe
great meeting to be held at the
Arena, for which arrangements are
being made to accommodate 10,000
people.
The Premier, Sir Richard McBride, will review the legislation
enacted during the past ten years
by his government and will forecast
some of the work yet to be done.
The gathering will be made as nonpartisan as possible.
About 200 special invitations have I
been sent out to members of the
Provincial Legislature, British Columbia members of the Federal Parliament, the mayors and councils of
all the cities in the province, and to
many of the reeves and councils of
municipalities. A general Invitation
has been extended to all those interested to attend.
According to the present arrangements the Premier and his cabinet
will arrive in the Royal City early
In the afternoon of June 2. In the
early evening the Premier will attend a banquet at the Russell Hotel
given in honor of Mr. John Sprott,
one of the oldest road superintendents of the province, who recently
retired after many years of faithful
service. This banquet is being given
by road superintendents from all
parts of the province, Afterwards
the Premier will speak in the Horse
Show Arena.
It Is expected that the accommodation will be taxed to the utmost. At
the north end will be n platform
largo enough to bold 100 persons.
The hall will be decorated with
flags and bunting, and with banners
typical of Ihe ten years of unprecedented prosperity which the province has enjoyed under the McBride ; ZOncs in which messages can be sent

In a special Canadian supplement
of the Sheffield (Eng.) Daily Independent valuable information is
given as to Prince Rupert. In an
article, "The Empire's Steel Railway," by F. C. Salter, the European
representative of the Grand Trunk
Pacific,  the  following appears:
When the railway, in conjunction
with low grades and rapid transportation, threads the most fertile
stretches of the Dominion, settlement along its route is doubtless attractive. So far as the Grand Trunk
Pacific Is concerned it travels the
most fertile stretches of the West
between the Great Lakes and the Pacific seaboard. This is no idle boast;
is not a vapid exclamation by those
supporting this particular artery of
communication, because It is supported by independent interests.
When the surveyors were desjatched
westwards by the Canadian tiovern-
ment in the late '70's, to plot the
route for the first Canadian transcontinental railway, they favored a
somewhat northern location west of
Winnipeg, to thread the Rockies of
the Yellowhead Pass—the natural
gateway through the Range—at the
low altitude of 3720 feet. Tbe surveyors laid emphasis upon the striking fertility of the soil along this
route, and maintained that although

Famous Valedictory.

BEST ON THE COAST.
From all that can be learned from
those who visit the city or who have
been away and have returned to
Prince Rupert, this place has little to
complain of with respect to the
financial situation. The city of Prince
Rupert has felt the stringency less
severely than any of the other cities,
it would appear. There are sufficient
reasons for this. In spite of the fact
that at times the heads of banking
institutions may tell us that the city
is going ahead too fast, this is not in
reality true. It may be that in respect to the population that there is
here the city has violated the hard
and fast rules that may be laid down
for progress. But the city of Prince
Rupert is a greater city in every
sense of the term than the mere
counting of heads indicate. It is a
city with a future that cannot be
lost sight of.
What impresses the visitor to tbe
place, and this is oftentimes lost
sight of by residents who become accustomed to the situation, living
right in the city where its progress
is to be seen all the time, is the
works of a permanent character that
are being carried out here. In this,
the Grand Trunk Pacific is setting
an example that it would be difficult
to find a precedent for in the development of other railway terminals. Here is being constructed tbe
largest dock on the Coast. Tbe cities
oi Vancouver and of Victoria are
becoming enthusiastic over the fact
that there is promise that within a
year or two there are to be started
In these cities docks that will accommodate vessels about as large as
the Grand Trunk Pacific dock will
handle here when completed. In
Prince Rupert tbe dock is nearing
completion. In the southern cities
the docks are likely to be started.
This is but one of tbe examples in
which the city of Prince Rupert
abounds to show that it is in a class,
as far as cities are concerned, all by
itself. The stability of the place is
shown in the fact that- there has
never been a slump-in the prices of
real estate. This rule has been followed not only by the residents of
the place, but by the investors on the
outside, who are content under all
kinds of circumstances to abide by
the city and their holdings here. It
is at a time like this when there is
a stringency in the money markets
that the advantages come to a city of
not having been boosted and boomed
beyond what was its real worth.
Prince Rupert is reaping the advantages of Ihe policy that has been pjur-
sued with respect to it now. There
Is no slump, but on the contrary the
city is making ready for a forward
jump in view of tbe early completion
of the railway. There is sufficient to
Dr. C. H. Brown, of Philadelphia,
has contributed an interesting essay on "The Man of Fifty" to the
May number of the North American
Journal of Homeopathy. In the essay, which was read at the Oxford
Medical Club in Philadelphia, Dr.
Brown takes issue with Dr. Osier's
famous valedictory at Johns Hopkins, in which he stated as his fixed
idea the comparative uselessness of
men who were more than forty
years of age. Except in the forms of
production that depend upon emotional impulse, as music and poetry.
Dr. Brown asserts that the age of
achievement may be said to lie between the ages of forty and sixty-
five.
In refutation of Dr. Osier's theory
Dr. Brown directs attention to the
activity of such men as John Wana-
maker, well on in his eightieth decade and still active as -the leading
merchant of Philadelphia; George
F. Baer, more than seventy, and still
actively engaged in his duties as
president of the Reading Railroad;
Dr. Samuel D. Gross and Dr. D.
Hayes Agnew, both of whom did
wonderful work in surgery when past,
sixty, and J. Pierpont Morgan, who
was without question a towering
figure in the world of finance and
who seemed to be in his prime after he had attained his seventieth
year.1
"Possibly the most conspicuous
man of fifty just at present," says
Dr. Brown, "is. Colonel George W.
Goethals, who at the age of fifty-
four is talked of for appointment as
civil governor of the Panama Zone
because of his success in digging
the gigantic waterway. He has done
bis best work after passing the half
century mark. He probably has
many good years before him, and his
experience fits him for still, higher
usefulness unless the past counts for
naught in a man's life,
"In the tabulation of 9000 eminent names in 'Who's Who in America' the average age at which they
received recognition for services
rendered was fifty-four years."
The age that marks the acme of
mental ability, the years in which
the master work of the person is being accomplished, the time of life
when a man is at his highest value to
his fellows, is fifty. Hence the deduction is fair that if health and optimism remain the man of fifty can
command success as readily as the
man of thirty.
"Between seventy and eighty Commodore Vanderbilt increased the
mileage of his railroads from 120
to 10,000 and added $100,000,000
to his fortune. At seventy-five Bismarck was the powerful chancellor
of the German Empire. Gladstone
became premier of England at
eighty-three. John Quincy Adams
was a power in the House of Representatives when stricken at eighty-
one. Thomas Jefferson was fruitful
in council until the day of his death
at eighty-three. John Adams retained all his great mental ability
up to the time of his death at ninety-
one, and Pope Leo XIII. showed no
signs of intellectual decrepitude
when he died of old age at ninety-
three."

I WILD BISON IN NORTH J
it*************************
Intoxicated by reports of the
fabulous prices paid for live silver
and black foxes, in Prince Edward
Island, where a new industry has
sprung up in the breeding of these
phenomenally valuable fur-bearing
■animals, Omer Chausse, a French-
Canadian, has spent the last two
years in the Fort St. John District.
Seen in Edmonton after his return from his long and perilous trip,
Mr. Chausse had a sensational story
to tell of his experiences in the
frozen Northland, claiming that he
had seen a large herd of wild bisons.
In his quest for live foxes, which
he Intended to ship from Edmonton, Chausse left Edmonton for the
north country two years ago last
April and since leaving Athabasca
Landing at that time he has not
seen a dozen white men, until he returned to that point a couple of days
ago. Chausse made his way steadily
northyard, hunting a*d trapping as
he went, and making provision for
his larder, according to his own
statement, with his rifle. During the
whole course of his journeys Chausse
made constant endeavors to trap silver foxes alive, but met with no
success, although he states that he
shot, or trapped; seven silver and
four black foxes.
Chausse was making for Fort St.
John, but he missed his bearings,
and wandered 200 miles further
north, where he encamped and spent
the winter. Chausse continued his
search during tho whole of the ensuing summer, but met only with
failure, so far as the capture of live
-{oxes  was  concerned.
It was on his homeward journey,
Chausse states, that he saw several
herds of wild bison, and he claims
that he actually shot one of the animals. Bad luck haunted Chausse
during the whole of the trip and on
the homeward journey he again
missed Fort St. John. He stated that
while on the trail he strained one of
the ligaments of his left leg, and was
compelled to He up. Chausse's provisions were running down and be
was reaching the starvation point,
when, according to his own story, a
flock of buffalo came within sight.
Despite his wounded leg, the hunter
made towards the herd, and he
maintains that ho succeeded in
shooting a calf. Hunger compelled
him to eat the animal, but he stated
that he would have brought the head
back to civilization had he not been
in a state of absolute exhaustion
and unable to carry any extra burden. Chausse had also to abandon
his pack of furs, which he estimated
as being worth something like $40,-
000.
Chausse stated that several hunters and trappers in the north country bave recently reported having
seen herds of buffalo, but he maintains that he is the first man to have
actually shot one of the huge quadrupeds since they were supposed to
have become txtinct in their wild
state.
Civilization has but scant attractions for Chausse, more especially
as he is unable to speak a word of
eligible English, the nearest approach which he can make to the
tongue most prevalent in Edmonton
being that picturesque combination
of French and Indian which is
known as habitat and which serves
as the vehicle of communication in
the north country. Though he is very
much Impressed by tbe growth of
Edmonton during his absence,
Chausse intends "hitting the trail"
for the north country again at once,
the desire to capture a silver fox
alive having become With him a
consuming passion, which will not be
satisfied until lie has met with success.

these have not been    more    serious
than those elsewhere.
"The Influx of such a large
amount of new capital will, however,
have a distinct effect in lessening the
strain, will it not?" Sir Thomas was
asked.
"It is going to be a very good
thing for the country," said be,
"that one of Its largo institutions
will be in a position financially to
carry on its works, and will have
also the requisite men to proceed.
Naturally ibis will make for the best
interests of the Dominion."
"Will any considerable part of the
new capital, other Hum that required
for maturing bonds, be long retained in London or New York?"
Cautious  Hanking.
"II will go wherever il will do
most good," said the president,
promptly, with a smile. "We keep
deposits in a variety of places."
".Might not the sudden inflow of
such a largo sum as fifty or sixty
million dollars, if not judiciously
controlled, have mischievous effects?"
"You mean through rash speculation, encouraged by the sudden easing o*f the money market? It might,
but that is not at all probable. The
amount of money available through
the banks for loan purposes would,
of course, be increased, but with
the larger deposits the banks would
be quite as cautious as they are
when only smaller fmids are available. It is all a question of banking
policy—of the soundness of which
during recent years there is no better evidence than the comparative
rarity  of hank  failures."
The statement has been circulated
that something like twenty million
pounds will be expended by the
company in the near future on laying
double tracks, building branch lines,
tunnelling the mountains, and other
construction work. Asked what the
immediate expenditure would be,
Sir Thomas said;
"Well, it will be governed to some
extent by our power to get labor and
material. I hope very much we shall
be able to carry out work in the current year involving an outlay of between sixty and seventy million dollars, although we have appropriated
a much larger amount. Some of the
work we hope to begin, such as tunnelling through the mountains, will,
of course, occupy three or four
years."
On the general trade and commercial outlook the famous railway
magnate was sanely optimistic.
"With the increased population—
and the number of immigrants this
year beats all records—I see no
reason," said he, "why our commerce and trade should not continue
to expand on relatively the same
scale as during the past few years."
Touching incidentally on the real
estate question, Sir Thomas expressed the opinion that the value of
productive real estate was not unduly high, though probably suburban investments were in some cases
a little in advance of the times. The
permanent advances in land values
has been such, however, that the increase in the prairie provinces alone
would more than repay Canada's
total  borrowings.
High-pressure gas lights have been
found to be just as effective as the

latter  are  more economical.

somewhat northern it was the finest
across the Dominion. Although the
route advocated by the Government
engineers was not followed at the
time it has been embraced practically by the Grand Trunk Pacific, after
this company's own surveyors had
probed the West through and
through to find the easiest and
straigbtest pathway.
There is not a single mile or waterless country along this route between Winnipeg and the mountains.
The stretches of rolling plains alternate with broken, wooded, anil
picturesque valleys anil undulating
country, so that the grain growing,
dairy fanning, market gardening,
and ranching can be followed side
by side.
West of the Rockies Die Grand
Trunk Pacific enters a country, the
possibilities of which have not yet
been grasped. Between the Rocky
and Cascade ranges there is a vast
saucer-like depression, though elevated at 1000 feet or more above
the sea, and of which two mountain
chains form the rim. The Klondyke
marks its northern limits, the Selkirk and Gold Range wall it from
the south. This plateau escaped discovery until the pioneering force of
the railway appeared. Since then it
has occupied the foremost position
in the eyes of those infused with
thoughts of agricultural conquest.
This is the sunniest and most productive corner of British Columbia,
where the British farmer—so well
|-»killed in mixed farming—has the
most alluring opportunity ,, to excel
and prosper. The country is gently
rolling and reminiscent of the homeland. Owing to the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway threading this "New
Garden of Canada" from end to end,
rapid transport is positive because of
tne low grades.
The outlet of this rich territory on
the west is Prince Rupert. With its
magnificent harbor, ten miles in
length by one to one and a quarter
miles in width, and facing the broad
Pacific, this port is the natural gateway from tbe Orient. Canada's immediate future is an enigma to the
world. But it will be found that the
level straight line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific breasting the width of
the continent will supply a key to
the riddle, as it will be the "Em
pire's Steel Highway."

doubtful if the trawler will have very

of a supply of aarrier pigeons in connection with the fishing operations
that are being carried on by the

being housed at the works of the

As soon as they become accustomed
to the place they will be taken to
sea on the fishing boats and liberated from time to time with the messages and reports that it is required
to have brought to the company.

NEW FISH PROCESS.
Professor Danilevsky, a distinguished physiologist of the Imperial Academy In St. Petersburg,
ami a member of the Stale Council
in Russia; M. Vladimir lvaninich
Kovalevsky, president of the Imperial Russian Technical Society; Col.
Blanchl, of the Russian Army, and
Professor Spassky, the   well-known
Russian chemist, visited Hull last
week at the invitation of the Hull
Trawler Owners' Association, and
demonstrated new processes for the
preservation of fish. The visitors
were welcomed by' the mayor, and
11.   Vladimir  Kovalevsky     expressed
the hope that commercial relations
between Hull and Russia would continue to develop. Other processes,
similar in method, but designed to
preserve fish in a more or less fresh
state for longer periods, were explained. The processes can be carried out 01* board trawlers or in
warehouses or during transport. The
professor's great claim for his discovery is that except for a small
quantity of common salt, the fish after the process contains no substances other than man uses today
In  his  ordinary  food.
Professor Danllovsky's invention
consists in treating freshly caught
fish by simple processes, of immersion in chemical liquids having for
their object the removal of injurious
decomposing bacteria, and then the
subjection to further liquid processes by which the fish may be kept
fresh  for many days.
The demonstration carried out by
Professor Danilevsky consisted of
placing a quantity of fish in various
pickling solutions. Plaice which had
been caught in Bridlington Bay the
previous evening were treated. The
fish was placed under cover and
sealed by the Russian vice-consul
and it was announced that a party of
scientists and food inspectors would
return in three weeks' time and test
the fish for freshness and purity. If
the experiments are successful, certain proposals are to be laid before
the Hull fishing industry, which is
to be given the first option of the
process. If they accept there will be
certain concessions which the inventor has been authorized to make
with regard to Russian territorial
fishing limits. The experiment with
the new preservative is creating
great interest and, if successful, will
revolutionize  the  industry.
