PRINCE  RUPERT, B.  C.  SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1913
ANOTHER
WAR
HAS APPEARED
ATHENS, May 23.--A general state of hostilities between the Greeks and the Bilgarians appears now imminent.   There was a serions
clash this morning between forces from these two nations at Salonika, which has been so much in the public eyes during the late war.
STRONGLY OPTIMISTIC
REGARDING THE CITY
E. S. Busby, the Chief Inspector of Customs for
the Dominion Has Most Unbounding Faithln
Prince Rupert-A Talk With the Well
Known Officer of the Depart
ment Cannot Fail to Arouse
to Action tne Most
Pessimistic
To converse with E. S. Busby, the
chief Inspector of customs for the
Dominion, is to become more and
more optimistic with regard to what
the future has for this i-ort. Mr.
Busby has had unexcelled opportunities of studying the situation and is
therefore able to speak from a very
wide experience. He has in the past
year or two covered the whole of
the Dominion and can see the progress that is being made throughout
the entire country. He realizes that
Prince Rupert is only resting until
the near approach of the coming of
the railway as a through line.
In the three years since he was
here before, the city has made remarkable progress, he says, but the
true development has not yet started. He cites the case of Vancouver
and of the various cities and towns
on the prairies and shows that
Prince Rupert, with vastly greater
possibilities, must, as soon as tiie
Grand Trunk Pacific is in, become
a city of wonders. He would not be
surprised to see in this city all
records of the past put In the shade.
There is the opportunity for a tremendous development and he Is
satisfied that it will come, and come
Quickly.
The trade of the country is going
forward with leaps and bounds.
Population is pouring in from all directions and the position that this
city occupies in connection with the
orand Trunk Pacific and the trade
of the Dominion must make it a
great centre.
Mr. Busby will complete, his inspection of the office here before*the
end of the week and will then leave
for the south on his way back to the
capital. He appears to be well satis-
tied with the condition of the offices
Realizing that the port is becoming
all the time more important, he will
Introduce some improvements in
connection with the handling of the
business, so as to give the public the
very best of service.

KING GEORGE HAS
DESIRE FOR PEACE
Replying to Address Presented to Him By the
British Residents of Berlin He Refers to the
Fervent Wish Which Has Been the
Chief Aim of His Father's Life-
He Struck the First Note
of Peace In Connection
With the Gathering
Berlin, May 23.—King George,
who is the guest of Emperor William,
in a speech delivered here today in
replying to an address from the
British residents of Berlin, said he
had a fervent desire for the preservation of peace. This had been the
chief aim and object in his father's
life.
This was the first note of peace
struck at the great gathering of the
crowned heads for the wedding tomorrow of the Kaiser's daughter,
Princess Victoria Louise,    to    Duke
Ernest Albert of Cumberland. It has
been the belief in various circles that
the gathering that is being held of
crowned heads may have a tendency
to spread the peace sentiment among
the different nations represented.
The most elaborate preparations
are being made for the wedding
ceremony Itself. In this connection
there will be worn by the young
princess the historical princess crown
which is taken from the imperial
treasury only for the marriages of
Prussian princesses.

"Obstruction is a vice and
must be extirpated from our
political life."—Hon. Rodolphe
Lemleux, In 1911.
"The closure must come to
Canada,"— Hon. Char lea Murphy, in 1911,
"i urn prepared to vote
closure and to put closure
through, no matter how long
that may take." sir Allen
Aylesworth, In 1911,
"Every member ol ibis House
has Juki us much right ai the
majority accord to them, mid no
more. ' Hon W. S. Fielding, In
1908,
"The puny which will favor
a revision of the ruleB will be
endorsed by the people."---Hon.
William Patereon, in 1908,
"Tho minority have always
recognized that the view of the
majority shall prevail."—Hon.
Win.  l'ugsley, In 1911.
"Let the government start in

SELF-GOVERNMENT.
Duncan Ross, In common with
others of the Liberal party, would
make it appear very much afraid
that the British Constitution is to
be smashed to pieces because the
Conservative party at Ottawa has
not seen fit to follow the advice of
a few soreheads of the Liberal party
who were left at home at the last
election. These succeeded in getting
the Liberals in the House, including
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, to follow their
wishes, hoping thereby to bring on
an election with the possibility that
they might by some means get a
safe seat and get back into the
House again where they might continue their political life instead of
being forced to get into some other
calling.
No taxation without representation, sounds well, but who is pretending that this principle shall be violated? Canadians are not submitting to
taxation by the Home Government
without representation. Canadians
demand the right to do as they like
with their money. Canadians can tax
themselves or what they wish. The
wish of tho Canadian people is
voiced through the majority that is
elected to represent them in the
House of Commons. When that majority decides that there is a necessity for an emergency vote in the interests of the Empire and wants to
vote the money to be used as they
see fit they are not violating any
principle of self-government.
When a minority in the House of
Commons representing principles
that a minority of the people of the
country believe in attempt by brute
force and animal endurance to dictate as to what shall be done by the
majority representatives, the principles of British government are being violated. It has been shown in
the past session of the House of
Commons that it requires heroic
methods some times to force Liberal
minorities into constitutional lines.
The country, however, has been
treated to the spectacle of how far
the desire for power will carry a
party that Is In political desperation.
These tears that the Liberal politicians are shedding over the decline and death of the British Constitution will not alarm the people of
Canada. These are old chestnuts that
have been revived by the party after sixteen years in power. The Canadian electorate has had the spectacle of a party for purely party
advantage taking a stand that was
against the best interests of the
Empire.
PRINCE ALBERT
IS BACK TO PORT
SHE WAS SUCCESSFULLY   HAUL-
ED OFF YESTERDAY   MORNING BY THE TUG LORNE
AND RETURNED.
Survey Will lie Made of Her Today,
When It is   Hoped to Have
Her Proceed to
Masset.
Meteorological   Report-,
May  23,
p.m.
Bar.,     80.004;
The Grand Trunk Pacific steamer*
Prince Albert has returned to the
port from Port Simpson, where she
had tho misfortune of grounding on
Alexander l'oiiu. She returned under her own steam and does not appear to be badly damaged by the accident. The officials of the company
are in hopes that she will be able to
proceed to Masset and then south.
The vessel was hauled off the
rocks about 4 o'clock yesterday
morning by the tug Lome, that went
to her assistance from here. Captain
McCoskrie, port waruen, went to
Port Simpson by the Lome and had
an opportunity of making an inspection of the vessel at low water as she
stood high out of the water. The
steamer had gone on the point
where several other steamers have
had the misfortune to strand in the
past. She went on easily, so as to
cause comparatively small damage.
Some of the plates were bent a
little as she went on shore until she
rested about amidships on boulders
that lie there. As the tide went out
the bow of the vessel stood well out
of the water with the stern afloat.
It was possible, therefore, to ease
off the forward part. Any damage
that, could have been would be about
under the oil-tanks.
At high tide the Lome was successful in getting her into deep water,
the Albert having steam up herself
all the time. The steamer did not
take any water and officers of the
company are in hope that there is
nothing very radically wrong with
her. It is, in fact, believed that she
will be able to proceed on her trip
this evening.
A large consignment of cement
that was on board for the drydock
is being taken off here. The vessel
came from Port Simpson under her
own steam and will discharge all the
cargo possible here. This afternoon
when she has been lightered the opportunity will be afforded to make
an inspection of the vessel. Mr.
Brownlee, the chief engineer of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, will arrive by
the Prince Rupert this morning and
will act in conjunction with the local
officials. It is expected that when the
vessel is light and an opportunity is
afforded to inspect her from the inside that she will be found to be in
condition to proceed to Masset. If
that is possible she will make that
trip and then go to Skidegate and
from there south to undergo the
necessary repairs that may have to
be made on her.
Sons of England Church Parade.
The first annual church parade

Empire Day is not to be forgotten
altogether in the city this year In
spite of the fact that it was decided
that there should be no marked
celebration as in former years. It
was decided that there should be a
centering of the celebration in connection with the fall fair and for
that reason the earlier date was not
made as marked as in other years.
Chief Vickers of the police force, who
is always thinking of the children,
decided that it would not be right to
allow the day to pass without any
celebration, and accordingly he got
busy yesterday and in a short time
raised a subscription to be devoted
to the getting of prizes for a series
of sporting events that will be contested for today.
The events will be carried out on
Second avenue between. Sixth and
Seventh streets. The programme
will commence at 2 o'clock sharp.
G. R. Naden, acting mayor, will lie
judge. The committee who will as-

steamer William Jolliffe, with Captain Newcombe, who is in charge of

yesterday. She will remain here over

the Queen Charlottes, seeing that
the fishing regulations are being
carried out and that there is no
poaching being done by foreign bottoms.
