The yards at the drydock that the
Grand Trunk Pacific is constructing
at Hays Creek will ^e the scene of
a very marked activity in the course
of a few weeks now. ±hls is the announcement that is made by the management of the Wineland Construction Company, which is now at work
on the buildings that are to form a
part of the plant there. The actual
construction has not yet commenced,
as the company is awaiting the arrival of the material for this. The
first of it is now in the harbor in-
tho shape of the cement and this is
being unloaded preparatory to starting upon the foundations for the
steel frames of the building.
The Wineland Company, in common with many other concerns, is
suffering from the ever-increasing

Naval questions and criticism
thereon bulk lai-ire fn the New Zealand press just now—provoked by
the visits of the great New Zealand
Dreadnought to the Dominion's ports.
Incidentally, some vigorous comment
on the Canadian naval question is
published.
The New Zealand Heraid in an
editorial says:
"The preposterous suggestion that
Canada or any other British Dominion has the option of remaining neutral should the Empire at any time
be involved in war has again been
made in the Canadian Parliament by
opponents of the Navy Bill. The assumption displays the same profound
ignorance of international conditions
as that which has led 'Little Engenders' to warn Australia that her
local navy can have no international
standing, either iu peace or war,

There has been, therefore, some
difficulty in securing the cement, in
the quantities that it is needed by
the company. There has arrived 500
barrels, the first of a series of shipments that will come here for the
buildings and this is being unloaded
from the Henriette at the wharf of
the drydock now. This will be followed from time to time by still
larger shipments and it Is expected
that there will be no shortage at any

It is expected that some time in
August the structural steel will begin to arrive and from that time on
it will be coming in regular shipments to this port for the shipbuilding plant. It is the hope of the Wineland Company to get all of this possible here before the broken weather
begins so that the buildings may be
advanced during the good weather.
When the steel work begins there
will be about 125 men employed.
Many of these will be experts in their

RICH AREAS FOR
FARMING PURPOSES
Capt. Sigurdson Of Winnipeg After
Investigating This Part Of The
Province Says There Are Great
Opportunities—May Bring Settlers
That this part of the province is
destined to become probably i Inmost important district from an agricultural standpoint is becoming evident more and more as the country
is being opened up for inspection.
The approach of the time when the
Grand Trunk Pacific will be a completed line is having an awakening
effect and with that comes the development of other means of communication to the different sections
that lie within easy reach of this centre.
Among the most observant visitors
that have come here to make an Inspection is Captain Sigurdson, of
Winnipeg. He is an old-timer in the
West, having come to the prairies
in the very earliest days of the settlement. He has therefore hud opportunities for watching the development of the country and knows what
to expect. He is of Icelandic blood
and is more or less interested in
the welfare of that people in the line
of settlement. For this reason his
visit to Prince Rupert at this time
and to the district that lies about
here is of more than passing interest,
as a good deal depends upon the ret-
suit of his observations with respect
INVESTORS OF NOTE ARE
LOOKING INTO COUNTRY
This Part Of The Province Is Attracting The Attention Of Mining Men and
Others-The Territory Along The Line Of The G.T.P. Will Produce All
Kinds Of Riches—The Queen Charlottes Also Drew The Attention Of
Those Who Are Looking For Investment—Arthur E. Hepburn, M.E.,
After Inspecting Properties Here Leaves This Morning For Vancouver
to future settlement of these hardy
settlers in the Skeena district.
The Captain, however. Is not posing as an agent for these people, or
for any race, in fact. He is interested
in making an investigation for tho
sake of ascertaining what there Is to
offer here. Me has covered a very
large part of the district and there
is no one sure what he will do as a
result. Last evening, however, though
generally reticent, he confided to The
Journal that the res,..- of his visit
might be that there would come to
the Skeena district before another
year quite a number of settlers of
all  races.
Prince Rupert, lie feels, Is ideally
located. It is surrounded by a country that is expected to mak.e It one
of the great cities of the coast. There
has been no mistakes made, he feels,

WEDDING AT
THE WHITE HOUSE
ENGAGEMENT     OP      YOUNGEST

She Will Wed New York Attorney in

Washington, July 3.—President
and Mrs. Wilson announce the engagement of their youngest daughter
to Francis Sayre, a New York attorney. The wedding will take place
In  November.
Even the most casual observer
cannot fall to be struck by the number of visitors who are coming to
Prince Rupert now and making more
less extended stays here. In many
cases the visitors do not make their
mission known and only by accident
is the real purpose of their sojourn
arrived at. The fact is patent that
Prince Rupert and the district of
which it is the centre is very much
in the public eye. These visitors are
but scouts in an investing way who
are from time to time coming in
here  and   seeing  what  there  Is  to

NOTICE!
CASH ONLY
On and after July 1, 1918, I have decided to place my
business upon a Cash basis, and desire your assistance.
1 appreciate the business you bave given me in the past,
cither lor cash or on credit, but there are    so    many    who
have abused  the confidence I have extended to them that I
«
am compelled to take this action.
The loss of money and the trouble and time in looking
after these numerous small accounts is more than tiie profit
on this kind of business.
Thanking you for the business you have given me and
trusting that my action will in no way Inconvenience you and
that I will still continue to have the benefit of your business
and assistance.

offer in the lines of investment in
which they are particularly interested. This season there have been more
than usual In this line, and they are
continuing to come.
Among the class mentioned may
be Arthur E. Hepburn, M.E., of Vancouver, and his associate, George McLeod, mention of whom was made in
these columns some few weeks ago.
These two visitors have been paying
the city a short visit and left this
morning for the south. The exact object of their tour to this part of the
province is not made known, but it
is certain that it has to do with the
mining Industry. They visited the
Queen Charlottes and took south
with them quite a collection of
samples. They staled to The Journal
that they were very agreeably surprised at what they found there. The
exaci nature of the proposition that
they have had under Inspection was
not made known, but enough was
conveyed to the newspaper man to
satisfy him that the proposition Is
likely to result in very considerable
expenditures of money.
Mr. Hepburn has large interests In
this province and is ever seeking
greater investments. He maintains
a London office with a very strong
and influential advisory board, who
make it a practice to underwrite
what are regarded as sound industrial ventures, bond issues and other
lines of financial business.
The lines in which Mr. Hepburn
directs attention are very varied. He
is a member of the council of the
Naval and Military Immigration
League of London, Eng. He is the
acting vice-president of this association for Canada, the Duke of Connaught being the president for this
country, while Earl Roberts Is the
chairman for the general body. This
organization is one aiming at inducing immigration to this country of
retired officers of the army and
navy. The results of the efforts that
have been made have been eminently successful so far. In the line of
his chosen profession of mining he
is a life member A.I.M.E., M.C.M.I.,
and a member of the i.oyal Society
'of Arts, London. In Vancouver he
takes a deep interest In various local
organizations, being a member of
the mining committee of the Vancouver Board of Trade, the Canadian
Club, of the Progress Club and of
the Chamber of -Mines.
Mr. Hepburn has manifested a
deep Interest in the country that la
being opened up by the Grand Trunk
Pacific, ami tor u number of years
he has been devoting no small
Amount of Interesl Iu this direction.
In this line he controls about j|0,	
aires of land ill the Nans Valley.
This area he has recently given cer-
tain people an option on, "Villi tin.

Ellison, minister of finance in the
Provincial Government, who is president of the corporation, M. Carlin,
the contractor and lumberman, so
well known in this province, J. A.
Harvey and John Arbuil.not.
Not the least important among
the holdings of Mr. Hepburn, according to his estimate nf the holdings,
is the possession of 9000 aeres of
high-grade bituminous cooking coal
on Bear River, 35 miles east of Port
George. This area is only about
twelve miles from the line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific and Is thus
easily  readied   In  thi   vn?  ■■■''  '  ; :--

the owner to allow this to lie idle.
He Intends to begin the development
on a commercial scale as soon as the
railway Is completed. A line of railway will be built Into it so that the
shipping may be done without delay.
Mr. Hepburn has not relied upon his
own judgment alone in the matter
of the value of this coal. He has had
the son of the eminent Professor
Galloway, of Cardiff, report upon the
deposit. He, In his written report,
gives the net tonnage available there
| as 160 millions. He further reports
on It thai li is the only high-grade
bituminous coal  deposit  proved     for
Ian urea larger than that of Scotland

Hepburn In this part of the provlnri
is of more than passing moment. Hi
has been an Interested \Isltor In various lines in Prince Rupert, n<-. In
company with bis associoto, Mr. McLeod, has manifested the greatest
concern In everything about the city.
He Inspected a week or two ago t ho
drydock and the cold storage plants
here and expressed his amazement at
what there was here already In an
Industrial way. It is more than possible that he may become still more
deeply Interested i'i this centre which
certainly will be for the advantage
of the city and the district,

Advertising  Hates  Upon  Application,
ADMIRAL'S  LIST INCREASED.
Friday, .Inly  I, 1913,
A QUESTION OP CLIMATE.
While the eastern part of the continent is sweltering in the excessive
heat that prevails there, we are enjoying, as usual on the Pacific
Coast, the most perfect weather conditions. There is no doubt that the
extremes to which the east is subjected must have a telling effect
upon the residents of that part. It is
li11lo wonder, therefore, that resi-
dents of 1 lie Pacific indicate a decided tendency to "carry their ages"
better than do those who live under
the climatic extremes of the east.
LOOKING THIS WAY.
There are not wanting indications
that this part of the Coast is the
centre of a great deal of the prospective speculation for the next term
of years. It may truly be said that
the eyes of the world are upon us
here. This is not a figurative way
of speaking with regard to the situation. This was clearly shown at the
times of the various sales that were
held of local real estate. The buyers
of lots In Prince Rupert came not
alone from Canada, but from all
parts of the known globe. There are
few cities, therefore, on the face of
the globe that present In the list of
property owners such a wide distribution of nationalities, as is shown
by a perusal of the list of owners
here.
Today with the railway very close
to completion the eyes of the world
are again focused upon the city and
the territory that is to be opened up
by the railway and the creation of
a great port here. This is shown in
an unmistakable way at Ibis present
time. There have been within the
past few weeks a continual procession of representative men who have
come here to look over the ground,
sonic in one line of enterprise and
others in another. Some of these men
came without very settled ideas as to
the line of investment perhaps, bul
many came to make investigations
with a view to developing on a large
scale  in   different   lines of  industry.
The satisfying feature in this connection seems to be that in all lines
of enterprise as far as can lie learned the investigators have gone away
with satisfaction as to the results
of the enquiries and the Investigations, Prince Rupert has every reason to expect rapid growth, more
rapid, In fact, than lias been the lot
of most of the places on the Coast.

Phenomenal  Run of    Promotions to
the Flag List of the British
Navy.
There has been recently a phenomenal run of promotions to the
flag list of the British Navy. No
fewer than twelve captains have
been made Rear-Admirals since
January 1, the latest being Captain
William C, I'akenhani, a spectator
on Togo's flagship of the battles of
th<- Russo-Japanese war, and now
fourth Sea Lord of the Admiralty,
whose promotion  is just announced.
Eleven of these twelve new Flag
officers owe their advancement to
voluntary retirements ot Admirals,
for al Ihe beginning of tbe year il
was expei ted thai only one vacuncj
would occur between January and
October, ibis being caused by Sir
Charles Hotham's retirement forage.
instead of only one, i ivelve vacancies have occurred by Admirals following the example of Sir Percy
Scott and withdrawing from the active list at their own request.
This flow of promotion has naturally tended to reduce the average
age of officers on the Flag list. It is
the policy of tbe Admiralty to provide a plentiful supply of young Admirals for command in case of war.

"A pontoon dock for oommerclal
purposes is far the Pest for Vancouver, unless it is to he a dock for
warships, and Vancouver harbor is
just suited io a floating drydock."
This is the opinion of Captain James
Stewart, secretary of the Vancouver
Shipmasters' Association and a
mariner who has seen nnd utilized
many of the floating and graving
docks in the World's ports. His views
agree with those held by the experts
employed by the Grand Trunk Pacific
in deciding upon that type of dock
for Prince Rupert.
Captain Stewart was shown Ihe
newspaper report giving some of the
reasons advanced by .Mr. Shultz—
who was prominently associated with
the building of the great United
States graving dock at Bremerton
and who recommends Vancouver to
build a graving dock.
"There is not the slightest doubt
in my mind that a floating dock for
Vancouver could be built at half the
cost of a graving dock and thai it
would be far more convenient, and
also lie in line with Ihe trend of modern expert opinion all over the world,
lor in nearly all the big ports now
the floating dock is taking the place
of the graving dock. Liverpool, for
instance is replacing its graving
,ine, docks by pontoon and the most modern docks as fust, as it can," observed
the captain, speaking to the News-
Advertiser.
i-lis at lent ion was drawn to the
argument that the cost of upkeep,
painting, etc., of a floating dock
would he more considerable, hut ho
did  not  agree that  this  was so ami
gave  many     instances     of    gravl	
docks where leakage had taken1 place
or where the land had given way
round the walls. "Now we expect that
this in w dock will he useil for the
repair ami the painting and cleaning
ol' ships. Il will at any rate he a lonf
time before this porl is going to be
a place lor the building of big
ships," he remarked. "Such cases as
the recent $11(1,000 case or the' l.oid
Derby could be treated jusl as wr.:
in a floating drydock as iu a graving
drydock."
As io the point .Mr. Shultz raises
aboul the difficulty of dealing wiih
machinery in a vessel by nienns of
cranes in connection wiih a floating
drydock, Captain Stewart said thai
the question of dealing with machinery by means of cranes iii connection
with most of the big pontoon docks
with which he was acquainted presented  no difficulties.
"I look in ihe Becond vessel that
entered (he first floating dock at
Hamburg and I recoiled then ami
afterward that that port had no difficulty In its floating ilryilocks in
dealing with machinery."
Captain Stewart referred to the
llefferman floating drydock at Seattle anil mentioned that the Stei I
Construction Company was building
i here a 600-foot long floating dry-
dock and ten years hence, if necessary, would add another loo (eel.
Vancouver, he •argued, could build a
floating drydock lo suit its purposes,
and as the dock would he built in
sections, could always add any length
it found necessary in later years.
As lo possible danger lo the salcv
of a pontoon drydock compared Willi
the permanent solidity of a graving
drydock, he said that there was no
difficulty in protecting the former
kind of dock and there would he nn
necessity, as had been suggested, foi
docking a floating dock lo repair i:.
as the latter could be taken to piece*
and repaired. Another advantage
about the floating dock was Ihat II
was open at both ends and the wind
could play aboul the ship, which was
being painted and dry it much more
quckly than it would dry in a graving dock. "Indeed, from a convenient
and commercial point of view—from
every point of view except for big
naval purposes—there is no question
that the floating drydock is best,"
concluded the captain.

NEUTRALITY  IN TH*:
BRITISH   EMPIRE
Continued from Page One.
leges. Fortunately for New- Zealand
and Australia their political education, however, neglected, has been
sufficient to instruct them upon their
relations to the Empire and none of
their political parties would make
ajiy foolish pretensions upon questions which are beyond debate.
■■We know very well that any foreign power at war with the United
Kingdom would do her best to cripple
Imperial trade wherever found and
In seize upon any Imperial territory
open to attack. There are very few
powers which could hope to keep
warships or commerce-destroyers at
sea against the British Navy and
Still fewer powers which could hope
to send expeditions oversea in the
teeth of British guns. The petty
'wars' of the Indian frontier, of the
Malay country, of the African interior only sentimentally concern us,
involving 'Imperial war' and naval
hostilities no more than did the Maori troubles which, however serious
to settlers on the Waikato, were as
remote from the people of England
as were the Indian risings on the
Canadian Red River and in the further Northwest.
•The •neutrality' theoretically contemplated by its exponents is the abstinence of a British Dominion from
participation in an Imperial struggle
with a powerful enemy or combination of enemies, a struggle in which
the supremacy of the seas might be
contested, the mercantile marine ot
the belligerents exposed to capture
and  their coasts exposed  to attack.
"A crude idea has been set afloat
In Canada, finding credence mainly
among the Nationalists of Quebec
Province, that in such a war Canada
might, if she chose, proclaim her
neutrality and thus obtain from hostile belligerents all the consideration
due to neutrals. In other words, they
imagine that Canada could be in the
Empire or outside the Empire, in seesaw fashion, as parties rose and fell
or as the exigencies of the moment

Steam Tug 'Nora'
For Hire or Charter
In the locating of the city here, as it
is a natural centre for trade and for
many lines of industry. The experi
ence of Captain Sigurdson should be
of value and especially In view of
the fact that he has made a decided
success during the past.
He made a trip to the Queen Charlottes and his opinion of that district
is most favorable. The climate appealed to him very strongly and
there is no reason why the production there should not be very great.
The soil, he is convinced, is of the
best quality and the production from
(hat group should be such as to meet
a. large part of the demand that will
arise here for garden stuff. The possibilities of the Islands in various
parts has been tested and the results
are therefore known. Rev. Father
Hogan has made, for example, a
grand success on a small scale of
growing various kinds of produce
and the results of his experiments
should be a lesson to others who
settle there.
He was interested largely In the
success that was attending his own
people there, for there has been quite
a large settlement of Icelanders who
have taken up their residence there
during this season. They are following fishing and at the same time
expect to go in for farming as well.
They are well pleased with the results and there is therefore every
reason for expecting more of them
to follow.
What applies to the Queen Charlottes also applies in no small
measure to the valleys along the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific within
easy reach of this city, the Captain
thinks, and ther.? are splendid opportunities for industrious settlers.
Port, Edward attracted the attention of Captain Sigurdson while he
was here and he has become quite an
enthusiast in that townsite. He
thinks that, it is destined to become
one of tiie most active of the centres
that will rise as a result of the build"
Ing up of this city.
