THE AUSTRALIAN
PREMIER RESIGNS
With A Majority Of Only One Over
Labor In The Federal House Of
Representatives The Whole Cabinet Has Turned In Its Resignation,
Melbourne, June 20.—The Australian Premier, Hon. Andrew Fisher,
and his cabinet have resigned as a
result of the recent elections. Ju
these elections the Liberals obtained
a majority of one over the Labor
party in the Federal House of Representatives.
The Fisher Government) at a cabit-
net meeting a week ago (derided ta
deter their resignation uittil a definite result in the Hume district of
New South Wales was known.
The whole of the electoral position was changed by the returns
from Hume. There were nearly
3000 absent voters unaccounted for
in this electoral district! where Sir
W'm. Lynne was for a fime in the
minority. ''
Sir William, though no't an official
CELEBRAfloirT ~~
AT HAZELTON
Laborite, was a consistent supporter
of the Fisher Government, and the
security of the absent votes involved
the return of Sir William, the Government having a majority of one instead of the minority.
DOMINION   BAY   IS  TO     BE   FITTINGLY  OBSERVED   AT THE
INTERIOR POINT.
Local  Baseball   Team    Going—Conservatives Have Withdrawn Arrangements to Suit.
The town of Hazelton is going to
celebrate in a grand fashion on
Dominion Day. Arrangements are
now beiu-; made for a grand excursion   from   byre   ro   the
Interior
town, where a full programme of
sports will take place. In connection
with them there will be local teams
taking part, including the baseball
and  football  aggregations.
Plans were well advanced here for
for the holding of the Conservative
picnic that bad been arranged for
earlier in the month, but. yesterday
it was decided in view of the circumstances that the picnic would be
withdrawn and thus leave the day-
clear for the sports up the line. It
was found that the people of Hazelton had gone to a lot of trouble and
expense in connection with the day's
celebration that they were putting
on and the holding of the picnic it
was feared might seriously interfere
with the attendance from here at the
interior point.
It was therefore decided that the
Conservatives would withdraw their
excursion and allow all who wished
to go all the way to Hazelton to do
so. A deputation representing the
Hazelton celebration committee con
sisting of Messrs. Aldous, Hethering-
ton and Moseley Is in town. They
have come to confer with the local
clubs that are to take part in the
games on July 1 and they conferred
with the executive of the Conservative Association yesterday afternoon
with the result that the Conservatives offered to retire from the field
so as to assist the Hazelton Com
mittee to carry out its programme
without any Interruption,
At the same time the Conservatives
arranged thai If nothing Interfered!
wilh the date tho Conservative picnic would be put on al Terrace on
Labor Day, September 1. The committee of    representative    Hazelton
men assured the    members    of the j

CAPTAIN   RORVTK  IS    AT    HEAD
OF AN ORGANIZATION
HERE.
He Will     Develop As the    Facilities
Become Available ill
Time.
There will be a new fish company, called the Ocean Company, at
work in this port within a few days.
This new organization is under the
management of Captain Rorvik, who
is a practical man and one who
knows the local conditions fully. He
has organized the new company and
is now getting things in readiness,
for the starting up on a large scale.
The company will use the wharf
formerly used by the Standard Fisheries. This will be the headquarters
for the operations for the present.
The company will be in the market
for halibut and other lines of fish
and will buy from the fishermen
and arrange for shipping south until
the railway is completed and the
opportunities exist, for sending the
product- east  direct   from   this. nbrt.
Captain Rorvik will start in a
modest way and develop the business
as the opportunities improve for the
handling of the output. In addition
to this, he has for hire the tug

DEATH  OF  S. .MILLER.
Well-known   Resident  of the    Hazelton   District  Passed   Away
There.
In liiis (-011110(11011 the position of
Prince Rupert as a port through
which shipping may be done by tlie
canal is an excellent one. Leaving
Prince Rupert a vessel will pass
south througii Hecate Straits. When
it is taken into consideration that the
vessel leaving Seattle, Vancouver or
Victoria must navigate long stretches
of inland waters where pilots are
deemed absolutely necessary it can
be seen that In point of time the advantages are probably with Prince
Rupert, while in point of distance
even, this port Is little farther than
the more southern ones.
Prince Rupert as the first port of
call  from  the Orient     will     possess
great advantages in all the shipping
that must pass through here.

SPRING SALMON SEASON
SEEMS TO BE WELL IN
The Canadian Fish And Cold Storage Company Is Receiving From Thirty
To Forty Thousand Pounds Of This Variety Every Second Day-The
Supply Has Increased On The Banks And The Steamer James Carruthers Is Returning With Good Numbers—Plant At Seal Cove Running
Day And Night Taking Care Of The Fish-A Good Season Is Predicted
The arrival of the steamer James
Carruthers of the Canadian Fish &
Cold Storage Company every second
day from  Nortti  Island brings from
30,000  pounds to  40,000  pounds of
spring salmon to be taken care of at
j the plant at Seal Cove. The fish are
I running  well   now   off   Graham   Island and  the catches    are excellent.
, with the result  thai  the plant    al
j Seal Covo Is kept busy not only ilur-
! ing the day, but  at night also.
The  halibut   catches  arc  large  as
local Conservatives in
arrangement as proposed by the Con-1 retiring as they did. They fell that
servatives for a change In date were lit would be of inestimable advantage
carried out there was every assurance that Hazelton would turn oul
a very large number to tbe picnic
on the date that was suggested provided there was an arrangement
made for an excursion train from
the interior. This the association
will try to arrange so that there will
be a general gathering there on the
date arranged. Moreover, the local
baseball players and the Hazelton
clubs will arrange for a return match
at Terrace at that time.
The  committee  that    represented
tue  Hazelton  celebration  committee
to them.
The programme at Hazelton includes In addition to the programme
of general sports a league baseball
match between the Prince Rupert
players and the Hazelton team. For
this the local team is making preparation in no uncertain way, expecting to return the victors. The
team's officers are: M. Cole, president; \V. D. Vance, secretary, and
Fred Henning, manager. There will
also be a football match between
the local players and the Hazelton
team. It Is expected that there will
here announced last    evening    that i be a large crowd from  here attend
tbey felt exceedingly pleased at the!the sports on July 1,
well and the plant Is now a busy-
place taking care of the quantities
of salmon and halibut that are being
daily dumped on to the floors of the
Cold Storage to be prepared for
shipment or stored away for future
use in the cold rooms of the plant.
The .lames Carruthers is making a
trip every second day to North Island and is coming hack with a
largo cargo from the fishermen that
are working off the Island, which Is
recognized as one of the best points
on the const for ibis variety of the
salmon.
Two days ago tbe steamer brought
to the Cold Storage Plant 110,000
pounds of springs. Yesterday she arrived again with 40,000 pounds of
the same variety, in addition to good
catches of halibut that were also
brought direct from the fishermen
for the local plant
The spring salmon, which finds
Its readiest sale on the German market, Is regarded as one of the delicacies In the fish line. It is cured
sufficiently to allow of its being
shipped without loss to its destination. It is not salted to any great
extent, so that the rich flavor of the
and this is done by the experienced
men who are employed on the work.

condition within a few hours in most
cases from the time that they are
taken from the water, I lie fisli are
in the very best of condition for 1 lie
curing process 'llial is followed ill
connect ion with them. Thus it Is
that the local Cold Btorage Is turning out the very best brand of fish
that  can be found anywhere.
There is no time being wasted al
the Cold Btorage now anil all hands
are busy In preparing tho harvest
of the sen for the markets. The
mild curing of the salmon is tar
more complicated in Its procesB than
that  of  the  freezing  of  the halibut
Is ascertained he will resign shortly. He has been foreign minister
since 1905, lie wishes to withdraw
because be considers that present
scandals affecting certain members
of the cabinet reflect, indirectly upon
himself, one of them is the Marconi scandal; another that developed
by the suit for divorce brought by
Herbert W. Carr-Gomm, Liberal
member of parliameni for Rntherll,
against Elliot Crawsbap-Williams,
Liberal member for Leicester, who
has been parliamentary secretary to
Chancellor of the Exchequer Lloyd-
George.
The fact is that Sir Edward Grey's
name has always been far above sus-
IWcion, but he Is unwilling to be associated longer with the present
government. The Carr-tloinm Craw-
shap-Williams scandal has grown to
such proportions that the whole of
the Liberal party fears its consequences. To escape them, Premier

THE  INTERCOLONIAL.
Hon. Frank Cochrane has undertaken to put the Intercolonial Railway on a genuine business basis
Other ministers have said that they
were going to do this, but Mr. Coch
rane strikes everyone who has had
anything to do with him as one who
means what be says, or who will at
least leave nothing undone to ac
complish a programme that he announces. The changes in administration that he has brought about already in the Government road has
caused great grief to those who have
regarded it as a convenience for local
politicians. Now he has appointed as
general manager a high priced railway man, Mr. F. E. Guitelius, whose
salary has been fixed at $20,000 a
year. Mr. Guitelius has a reputation
at stake and takes over the work on
the condition that he has a perfectly
free hand.
THE FISHING CENlivE.
Every day adds to the conviction
on the part of those who follow the
trend of events nere that this is to
be pre-eminently the fishing centre
of the Pacific Coast. The farther
north the different varieties of fish
are taken the better the quality. As
a result the catches that are made in
these waters are superior to those
that are taken farther south. The
variety of fishing that there is to be
developed here is also one of the
marvels of part. All kinds seem to
be close at hand. In this respect the
visitors from the United Kingdom
do not fail to remark upon the fact
that so many varieties of fish are to
be taken here and within such easy-
reach of the city.
Unique  Periodical That  Is  Issued  in
the   Far   North
Land.
There exist several journals that
make their appearance only once a
year. These are published within
ihe confines of the norih polar
circle. The i-jsiumo Bulletin, for example, is edited near Cape Prince
of Wales, in Behring Strait.
Here, in a village inhabited by Eskimos, the English missionaries have
established a school, and as only one
steamer labels at this place, and that
only once a year, the news that it
brings is consigned to a sheet of
paper printed with the lniinegrapb.
Its size is eight by twelve inches.
The paper is very thick and only
one surface  is  used.
This Eskimo Bulletin in a subhead claims to be the "only yearly
paper." This, however, is an error,
for there is an annual sheet published in Godthaab, Greenland, where a
small printing office was established in 1862, whence news sheets and
lithographic prints have been issued.
The Journal in question is entitled
Atnagagdlintlt, Nalinginarmik Tus-
arumiiiasassiimik, that is "Something
for reading; accounts of all sorts of
entertaining subjects." The language
is that of Greenland, a dialect of the
Eskimos.

paper on "Tbe tooth Anniversary of
the Discovery of the Pacific Ocean
by Vasco Nunez de Balboa," by Sir
Clements Markbaiu, F.R.S., was
read, in tbe author's absence, by
Dr. Blanvill Corney. Lord Curzon
presided.
Lord Curzon said that their veteran ex-i,residcnt, Sir Clements
Markham, who had rendered so
many services to the society and to
the cause of geographical science in
this country, was to have been present to read his paper upon Nunez,
the famous Spanish explorer, who
was the first European, he supposed,
to see the Pacific. Unfortunately,
however, the state of his health pre-
way  through
the dense forest and climbed the
heights until tbe wide expanse of
ocean burst upon his astonished
gaze.
The story was that Vasco Nunez de
Balboa descended the western slopes
and rushed into the sea waving the
flags of Aragon and Sastiie over bis
head. The name of Pacific Ocean
was due to the young son of the
chief of Comogre, who gave Vasco
Nunez information of its existence.
He said that the other great ocean
was smooth, and never rough like
the Caribbean Seu. From this time
until his death the aim of the discoverer's life was to navigate this
Pacific Ocean   He had entreated the

Sir Clements R. Markham, in hisjence at court, to supersede him with
paper, said that their hero that night I a large    force.    Pedrarias    brought
was Vasco Nunez de Balboa, one of
the best of the Spanish conquerors,
'one who overcame by far the great
est difficulties by the most praiseworthy methods, whose life was as
romantic as his death was deplorable and sad. His achievement was
the discovery of the Pacific Ocean
400 years ago. It was impossible for
any man who achieved greatness to
have begun in more depressing and
apparently hopeless circumstances.
Two great expeditions had been sent
from Spain and San Domingo to
form colonies on the coasts from
Carthagena to Veragua. Both were
mismanaged, their leaders were
dead, survivors were scattered along
the coasts, dying of fevers and starvation, the miserable remnant in the
fort af the Gulf of Darien came away
in a rickety, leaky craft, nut were
sent back. The problem was to turn
this disastrous mess into a thriving
colony without outside help. Few
would attempt it. Much fewer could
succeed. And who was the coining
man? A penniless fugitive, with no
authority, no official appointment of
any kind, one who was In Enctsco's
ship, headed up in a cask to escape
from his creditors. Thus they first
heard of Nunez de Balboa.
Was Born Lender,
Bncisoo landed him among the
forlorn people at be fort In the Gulf
of Darien, and then departed. He
was recognized at once as a born
leader. He bad a magnetic Influence
over men, who were led to feel confidence in him. Even the tierce
Frnncisco Pizarro, who was older
and actually in charge, at once became his follower. The first care of
Vasco Nunez was to gather together
the scattered remnants of the former
expeditions, 'this was a most difficult service, but thanks to the energy
of one man it. was done. He fed the
hungry, nursed the sick, allotted
lands, and helped to build huts for
the ablobodicd, and things began to
Improve. Rut ihe supply of food was
the great difficulty. Here the misconduct of predecessors in the robbery and cruel treatment of the natives formed the main obstacle. Vasco
Nunez had to gain (heir confidence,
and to overcome lheir suspicions
aroused by the cruellies Of Ojedn
and others who had gone before
him. lie succeeded with the natives
just as he had succeeded with his
own countrymen. Ills conciliatory address won over warlike tribes who
had been burning under a sense of
cruel injuries unavenged. Vet he
had to wander far to gather In provisions. In time, however, Is wise policy, bis energy and patience overcame all obstacles, markets were
well filled at the gates of his fort,
and confidence In the great leader's
integrity and justice was established.
There was one rickety little craft at
Ills command and he sent it to San
Domingo with an earnest request for
help, and for recognition. The admiral, the son of Columbus, responded to both requests. Two vessels were
dispatched laden with provisions, and
Vasco Nunez received from the
Audiancia of San Domingo the appointment of Alcalde Mayor, or
chief magistrate of ihe colony he
had created.
First Sight of Pacific.
Vasco Nunez then gave his attention   to   the  discovery  of   the    isthmian  region,  to collecting Informa-
with him a bishop, who was a good
man, able to appreciate the work of
Vasco Nunez, but he also brought a
gang of adventurers of the worst
type.
Launching of Ships.
It was due to the intervention of
the good Bishop Quevedo that Vasco
Nunez was at last allowed to undertake the launch of ships on the Pacific Ocean. He had seen all his wise
policy reversed, the friendly natives
turned into enemies, and he had
written a despairing letter to the
Emperor, Vasco Nunez took the first
step by sending one Francisco Gara-
vita to Cuba to bring back the materials for building the ships. A part
was formed at a place called Acia,
where the materials were to be landed, and when a road was to be made
over the mountains to the other side
of the isthmus. The timbers were cut
and fashioned at Acia, where the
ironwork, cordage, and the rest of
the ship's furniture were landed.
The chief of Careta, who was the
father-in-law of Vasco Nunez, sup-
I lied the carriers to convey all this
across the mountains. There was
much Buffering from want of provisions, bul finally the materials were
conveyed across to the shores of the
Gulf of San Miguel. The work of
building Ihe ships was then begun,
and after innumerable difficulties
they were finally completed end
launched. He had four xessels and
three hundred men ready to navigate
I the South  Seas.
An Unheeded Prediction.
A Venetian astrologer had once
told Vasco Nunez that wjien be
should see a certain star, which he
named, in a certain pari of the heavens his life would be In danger.
One evening after the ships were
ready to sail he saw the fatal star
In the quarter indicated by the astrologer. He laughed al the prediction. The very next clay he received
an urgent message from Pedrarias
requiring him to come al once to
Acia, as his advice was needed on a
question of importance. Quite unsuspicious of any treachery, Vasco
Nunez set out a! once to obey the
summons, .lusi outside the settlement
of Acia he was arrested and bound
by his former friend and follower
Francisco Pizarro. They need not
dwell op the particulars of the murder. It was not even n Judicial murder, for the Judge Esplnasa protested, it took place in i r, i t, when
Vasco Nunez wns in hie forty-second
year.
The death of Vasco Nunez was
one  of  the  greatest   calamities  that
and Judicious as he was firm of purpose and Indomitable of will. Y; t
this great man was destined to fall
through the mean jealousy of an incapable ruffian placed in power
througii court Influence.
Other Explorers.
Sir Clements Markham then referred to a number of subsequent
explorers in the Pacific-, Including
Juan Fernandez, Magellan, and l'i-
daneta, and in this connection paid a
warm tribute to the memory of Captain Scott and his companions.
In the course of the subsequent
discussion Sir Edward Thurn observed that it was highly probable
that the Pacific was seen before
Nunez's time by white men, though
there was no record of it.
Lord Curzon, in proposing a vole
of thanks to Sir Clements Markham.
said it was not a bad thing that
sometimes they should diverge from
the track of contemporary exploration, and, in the hands of a cojnpe-
tent guide like Sir Clements jjark-
ham explore the records and praise
the achievements of men of a bygone
j day. Lord Curzon referred to Keats'
j famous sonnet about "a peak In
| Darien," which Sir Clements Markham had quoted, substituting the
name of his hero "Nunez" for the
name "Cortes." The error on the part
of Keats, if it was an error, seemed
to him a very pardonable one. No
doubt if the geographical society had
existed in those days, and if the poet
Keats had been a member, he could
not   possibly  have   committed   it.

Ufleil   Itself  Into (lo- Air from
Standstill.
San Francisco, Cal., June 19.—
["he first of two nit- craft which
Roald Amundsen will take on board
the Fram for scouting In his polar
.■■. edition and which are equally at
home In v.aier, air or on ice, has
lust been put through special public-
trial In San Francisco May by Silas
Chrlstoffersen, the designer and
builder. The air pilot carried two
passengers in the roomy cockpit, The
planes of t lie machine had no difficulty in lifting litis weight high In
the air, as well as extra dead weight
placed In the boat to represent supplies. Tin- trial «us remarkable in
that the new craft lifted Itself Into
the air almost from a standstill, the
distance of actual contact with the
water being so short that even Mr.
Chrlstoffersen, who expected much
of his latest Tic ice, was surprised.
The craft, if shorn of its engine
ind wings, would look nol unlike a
round bottomed dory in tho water.
When it rises, however, it looks like
nothing so much as a huge winged
shark flying. Under each bilge is an
ice runner on which the vessel will
iskld over tho ice as smoothly and
taslly as it flashes over the surface
Dl lie water or Hies into the air.
The air craft is designed so it can
be "broken" into several parts and
re-assembled easily when needed for
use. A duplicate of this one will be
built in Mr. Christoffersen's shops
immediately.

Weight service on the new lines as
soon as in operation, and that their
machines are capable of carrying a
ton of freight at "lie time. The machine as used by the company In
California Is of the hydroplane type
adapted for either air or water navigation and can be operated in such
a manner that one route can be
easily changed for the other without
.serious mishap or delay.
"I believe," said Mr. McLean when
discussing the project, "that In two
years' time the mail will be carried
from the Atlantic to the Pacific-
Coast in less than two days where itj
now requires lour or five days by
.the quickest means of transportation.
'Our company sees the advantage
of locating in this part of the Dominion. Edmonton is in a position
where to get to other large centres
much distance has to be covered and
the aeroplane is the only ultimate
and satisfactory solution In the distance-covering business. It will be
some time yet. before the aero lines
nan compete with railroads in the
matter of heavy freight handling,
but the time is not far distant when
railway stock will not be selling at
par as it is now.
"When one thinks of the advantage that the aeroplane would be in
this country In regard to the mail
service alone, it is worthy of the
support and encouragement of every
citizen of Alberta to make the location of a largo plant at this point
possible."

BROUGHT GOOD CARGO.
The steam trawler James Carruthers of the Canadian Fish & Cold
Storage Company returned yesterday from the usual run made by her
every two days to North Island, off
the coast of Graham Island. She
brought with her a good supply of
both halibut and spring salmon. Of
the latter she brought the largest
amount that has yet been brought
in from lhat part of the district this
season. She had 40,000 pounds of
the springs. In audition to this, however, she brought 38,000 pounds of
halibut from the fishermen that are
engaged there in the taking of the
fish. She has unloaded these at the
Cold Storage and is returning at once
to the same place for the next catch
that is now in progress and which is
expected to be equal to that brought
in   this  time.
