SKEENA TO BE GREAT PRODUCER
G.T.P. Officials Now Here Expect to See the land In That Section Giving Rich Returns In Way
of Farming-- Fruit and Vegetables Will Be Produced In Abundance to Meet Local Demands
-Well Pleased With the Prospects Along the Route of the Railway.
The Grand Trunk Pacific officials
returned to the city last evening, after a trip over the line as far as the
Ross tunnel, beyond Hazelton. They
will leave for Granby Bay on the
Prince Rupert on Sunday morning
before leaving for the south again
by the same steamer on Monday. The
intervening time will be spent in investigating the local situation. The
visit of the traffic officials, including J. B. Dalrymple, vice-president
and traffic manager; W. P. Hinton,
of Winnipeg, general passenger
agent; Captain NicholBon, manager
of the steamship service, is of vital
Importance to this part of the system, as matters essentially to do with
that end of the service will be taken
up now and disposed of.
Mr. Dalrymple, who nas not been
in Pr|nce Rupert for ^bout a year
and a half was struck by. the marked progress that was being made.
Speaking of the terminal facilities
that are to be provided here, Mr.
Dalrymple said that his company is
determined to make them In keeping
with the ideals which the company
has In view with respect to this
port and its trade. Tbe Grand Trunk
Pacific expect big things here, it was
made evident by his conversation.
Accordingly it Is planning    for ter
minals and wharves that will be oil
an extensive scale.
While the plans are for the advantage of the company in the handling
of its Immense trade here, there will
be a decided benefit conferred upon
the city and the citizens in the carrying out of this proposition. The
officials are most optimistic with regard to the future of the district that
is to be served by the railway outside of Prince Rupert. This was especially noticeable in the views expressed by Mr. Hinton, who, in his
capacity is thrown into very, close
touch with the situation. He says
that there are a great many inquiries
made relative to the farming districts within easy reach of this city
and there will be many coming in
this season. He says that there will
be from week to week settlers coming to Prince Rupert for the purpose
of getting upon the land in the
vicinity of this city. Many of the
enquirers think that the railway
company has land itself to offer and
ask for Information
The land along the valley of the
Skeena will, he says, rise rapidly in
value and there will be, settlement
on every acre of the territory by
those who intend to raise fruit and
produce for this city. The holdings
will, he believes, be    small,    as the
land will be too valuable for large
holdings
Mr. J. E. Dalrymple, vice-president, interviewed last evening, stated
that the visit of himself and Messrs.
Bell and Hinton was altogether with
the object in view of inspecting the
service generally, including both the
vessels and railway, and expressed
himself as well pleased with the
character of the service and the
progress made in extensions of the
railway and terminals throughout
the two thousand miles now in operation.
"Hotel, station and dock plans are
now well advanced and in all probability work will commence as soon as
excavations and other activities under way are so far advanced to permit " said Mr. Dalrymple, "and na:
turally, during our present visit careful consideration to requirements of
traffic and future possibilities will
be given and enter largely into our
conclusions when final plans are
adopted, but beyond this 1 cannot
say anything at present.
"I have had a brief observation
only this evening of the advance
made in Prince Rupert building and
development since my last visit, almost two years ago, and hope to have
an opportunity to see the city thoroughly while I  am here.    My first
survey afforded me the sincerest satisfaction, but, after.all, was only to
be expected, as it is in line with the
progressive spirit which has always
prevailed here. Along the line we
travelled over to east of Hazelton
great activity was apparent everywhere and the pioneer Is planting
himself almost everywhere along
the route and the soil so far cultivated exhibits the greatest possible
fertility and I am sure the production of all the fruits, vegetaBles and
other produce grown elsewhere in
British Columbia will find its greatest development in the Skeena River
district a fact to be especially welcomed by Prince Rupert, which will
then find a constant supply of the
products of the soil near at hand,
with the added satisfaction that the
money paid by citizens of Prince Rupert to the settler will come back in
trade to its merchants, an ideal condition.
"I hope the citizens of Prince Rupert will give the utmost aid to encouraging the new settler and exhibit
the possibilities of' this district and
the fertile interior to the curious,
land-hungry homeseekers of the Pacific Coast and elsewhere. It will require only an earnest effort, and
prosperous conditions must continue
and increase rapidly."
TO PROVIDE  WATER
Steps Taken By the Townsite Compaiy
At Port Edward to Grant
Supply.
The
•ipe  Lino Will  Be    a     Mile is
Length From Lake
Matthews.
W. B. Baer, of the Port Edward
Townsite Company, who has returned from Seattle, says that the lots in
the new town are selling very rapidly. The company has decided to provide a water supply for the place at
once and work will begin almost immediately. This step is made necessary by the fact that there will evidently be a considerable population
there before the water supply is in
piace.
The putting in of the system will
not be a difficult work, as Lake
.Matthews lies only a mile distant
and has an elevation of 310 feet
above the sea. The system will cost
about $30,000, and there is a supply
to provide for 165,000 people from
the lake.

Washington, April-17.—There is
to be a radical change in the policy
of the United States toward forest
products in the new tariff bill. A
great growth in timber exports to
the United States is looked for as a
result of the new arrangements.
The Democrats alao hope by this
pollcy io conserve Hie United States
forests. All forest products with u
very few exceptions will go on tbe
free list under the new tariff bill
that Is brought  down.
Immediate free sugar was rejected
by ,the I louse Democrat caucus by
an overwhelming vote, following an
appeal by the Democratic le ulet ■ to
stand by the President and i lie
Ways and  .Minns Committee.
This leaves the BUgar schedule
j unchanged from the compromise
j form in which it was presented to
the caucus by Chairman Underwood
and his colleagues of the committee,
following conferences between the
White House and leaders of both
houses of congress.
The Democratic members of the
committee, including such free traders as Representative Harrison of
New York and Itainey of Illinois,
stood as a unit for three years' gradual  reduction  to a free sugar basis.
Besides this action, the caucus
left, open the exact date when sugar

OPTIMISM Ol"   OFFICIALS.
The optimism of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway officials is sufficient
to warrant citizens of Prince Rupert
in entertaining the highest expectations with regard to the city. There
is in Prince Rupert at the present
time a group of the traffic managers
of the Grand Trunk Pacific, and in
no uncertain way do they express
themselves with respect to the development that is to take place here and
along the line of the railway in the
Skeena River. Mr. Hinton has always taken a deep interest in the
farming possibilities of the district,
and he seems more than ever impressed with the territory. From his
interview it is learned that there are
many eyes upon this city's hinterland, which is to give such good returns to the farmer that enters upon
the land and prepares it for the production of supplies for this city. Mr,
Hinton believes that nowhere else in
British Columbia will there be better
fruit and vegetables produced than
will be grown In the Skeena Valley.
In this view he is borne out by Mr.
Dalrymple.
It Is evident, therefore, that the
Grand Trunk Pacific is prepared to
do all it can to foster the development of this branch of farming and
in consequence there will be built up
in the interior of the district a number of rich communities which will
mean so much for the city of Prince
Rupert, The market here will be
without its peer on the continent. It
will he a large consumer of the
products that can he grown in the
valleys along the line of the railway.
This will be an industrial centre,
and as such will be a ready buyer
of all that I here is to offer.

SHIPPING NEWS OF THE BUSY NORTHERN PORT
*****************************************************
VESSELS SAILED.
Somewhat behind time, the steamer Venture sailed for the south yesterday. The Princess Ena also left
last evening after discharging cargo
here.
OVERHAULING ESTEVAN.
In order that repairs and overhauling which will cost between
$7000 and $8000 may be done to
her, the Department of Marine's new
vessel for British Columbia, the Estevan, is now at the Wallace wharf,
North  Vancouver.
While at Esquimau she was thoroughly examined, and after the extent of the repairs necessary had
been ascertained, tenders were called
for and the Wallace Shipyards, Ltd.,
were awarded the contract. The repairs, which are all of a more or
less minor character, will be effected
without the necessity of placing the
vessel upon the ways and will occupy
about two weeks. The Estevan was
towed over here from Esquimalt and
arrived on Friday.

A BUSY SEASON.
It is evident that Prince Rupert is
to be the busiest port of its size on
the Pacific Coast this summer. As
the spring passes there are increasing indications that this is to be a
good year here. The Grand Trunk Pacific officials now here state that
there is no reason to expect other
than that the line will be complete
some time next year. It is evident
also that tnere is to be no time lost
In getting the work on the hotel and
the terminals started. There is, in
fact, every reason to believe that by
July the foundations for the hotel
will be commenced and from that
time on all will be activity.
The work on the new Premier Hotel has started and before many more
weeks pass operations will be under
way on the Provincial Government
Buildings and in all likelihood on the
Dominion Government   works here.
The port has the largest fishing
fleet on the Coast plying in and out
of the harbor and will soon bave the
largest   drydm-k   on   the Const.     This
latter work undertaken by tbe Grand
Trunk Pacific «ill induce it. Is felt,

PRINCE   RUPERT
Sir Charles Tupper, speaking in
Winnipeg, remlniscently reviewed
the all-important question of Imperial naval defence in an interview.
Sir Charles in expressing his opinion
of the part Canada had played in
the great Imperial history of the
twentieth century, referred to the
early steps taken by himself to place
Canada in a position to aid the
Motherland in time of stress.
"Many years ago," said the statesman, "I advocated in an endeavor to
strengthen the weakest links in the
Imperial defence chain the establishment of a fast Atlantic service between Great Britain and Canada, the
ships to have a speed of not less
than 20 knots an hour and to be provided with armament to render them
practically secure against any ordinary attack. The British Government subsequently agreed to give
£75,000 a year to provide and maintain the service so as to have a trade
route open so that Canada could
keep the Motherland supplied in time
of war."
Sir Charles added that he carried
the vote in the House of Commons,
but was prevented doing anything by
the short life of that Parliament (In
181)6). Later he carried a vote of
£150,000 for this service, but Lord
Aberdeen, he said, refused to ratify
the order.
"Subsequently," said Sir Charles,
"I heartily approved of the resolution unanimously proposed by the
Laurier Government and supported
by R. L. Borden on behalf of the Opposition for the establishment of a
Canadian navy. Also when Mr. Borden visited England and learned that
a conflict with Germany was likely
to occur at a comparatively early-
date, and when he obtained the concession that Canada should be In a
position to be consulted on matters
of foreign policy, 1 heartily approved
of the policy which was subsequently adopted to contribute three dreadnoughts of Ihe highest class to meet
any emergency which might arise. I
regrel exceedingly that the Opposition lias not heartily supported thai
policy, as it was not only calculated
to meet any emergency which might
endanger the solidarity of the Empire, inn also to place Canada In a
position to form whatever Parliament desired in the nature)of a local
navy, with power to recall those
Kliips for that purpose.
"I regret," concluded Sir Charles,
that In view of my belief that the
altitude of the Government of Canada in tills respect is the greatest
contribution to the pence of the
world r.Ir Wilfrid Laurier did not
enable that attitude to be taken by
tbe united Parliament of Canada,
and no one can deny that the policy
of (he present prime minister has
given Canada a higher position than
it bus ever occupied In the esteem
of the world.

HELD MEETING TO
PRESENT VIEWS
(Continued From Page One)
would play a part in the general
system that would be put in. If these
trunk sewers were in place it would
be possible to connect up with them
temporary sewers for a time if that
was deemed wise. There was necessity for a start upon the sewer system. If something were not done In
this direction there was the danger
of a loss to the city from an outbreak of some contagious disease
should there be a continued dry spell
of weal her. By means of the map
he showed the course of the sewers
thai it was proposed to provide for.
In connection witli the bridge
across Morse Creek, the city was
asked to provide for this to the extent of $35,000, while the provincial
government and the Grand Trunk Pacific were providing for the remainder of the $100,000 it was sui
posed to cost. It might be asked what
would be done in the matter of the
Hays Creek bridge when the time
came to build one there. He could
not speak for the council of thai
time, but he would think that the
right policy of the city In such matters would be to have the bridge
built out of general revenue.
The various other bylaws were referred to by the mayor, who made it
tlear that while he was strongly in
favor of passing each one of them
it remained for the property owners
lo decide the question themselves. '
He asked the city engineer, Mr.
Mason, to explain the sewer proposition, and this was done by that of
ficial briefly. On the conclusion of
his speech it was asked if there were
any questions that were to be
answered. There were none who had
any to submit.
The mayor called upon Captain
Fred Stork lo speak on the drill hall
site bylaw and this the ex-mayor did
briefly. He advised the passing of
the bylaw which would permit of
the construction of a drill hall that
was promised by the minister of
militia to be a commodious one and
which the local member, Mr. Clements had promised would be start
ed at once. He showed that in add!
tion to the use which could be made
of it as a militia""headquarters here,
It would be of great service in other
ways. It could be used as a recreation place by the city and this was
something that was badly needed.
He showed that there had been a
movement on foot for this for the
last three years. The only condition
upon which such a drill hall would
be provided was that the city should
give the site. He felt personally that
the city would be ready to give very
liberally in the matter of a site
when uy that means they were to
have a commodious place like that
planned.
The last speaker was O. H. Nelson,
the chairman of the school board,
who was asked to speak on the
school bylaw. He explained'the situation as it existed with respect to the
school accommodation in the city.
The aim of the^ trustees was to give
to the youth of the city the very best
that could be given In the matter of
education. That, was something that
the children had a right to expect.
He said that while he favored all
the bylaws and would vote for them,
he placed the school bylaw on a different plane from the others. It was
Important to have sewers and to
have them early. The same could be
said of'other public improvements.
If necessary, however, these things
could wait, it was not so with respect
to schools. The children could not
wiiit. They had to get their education now. The board realized this nnd
was placing schools in the city al as
low a cost as possible, and yet in
positions where tiie school population could he served. This school
which ii was proposed to place on
Borden streel was an absolute necessity, it would accommodate the
High school and also the primary
-classes in the centre of the city for
a time. I.liter it would be required
- "ciiicr lor nigh school uses un-
;i permanent High school was
.It in ii location to be selected for
■   purpose.
The mayor "asked any of the aldermen who wished to speak to address
the  meeting,  but  there were    none
lio so desired.    The meeting there-
ilion  adjourned.

THE AMERICA CUP.
Few sporting events have attracted so much attention as the International yacht races for the America
Cup. Sir Thomas Llpton's challenge
will produce another of    these con-
vious America Cup contest between
Sir Thomas Llpton's third Shamrock
mid the Reliance, Sir Thomas is a
good sport, and litis already gone af'-<
ter the cup three times. He bus discovered, as Lord IJuraven and others
did before him, that the American
defender has a decided advantage in
these contests. The rules require
that the challenger shall proceed under sail on her own bottom to the
place where the contest is to take
place. Consequently the British
yacht muBt be a real vessel, capable
of sailing across the Atlantic, while
the American may be any kind of a
shell able to keep afloat for a short
spin on the coast.
The America Cup Is a trophy given
in 1851 by the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes, for a race open to all
yachts with no time allowance. The
course was around the Isle of Wight.
Fifteen vessels started and tho
schooner America won the cup. I!
was not a challenge cup at the be-
the winner, Mr. Sleeves, and was
given by him to the New York Yacht
i'InI) to be used ns n challenge
trophy. In 1870 there were fourteen
competitors, but subsequent races
were between only two vessels. In
1870 Mr. Ashbury sent over the Cambria and in 1871 the Livonia. These
tailed and there were no more races
for five years when Canada made an
unsuccessful attempt with the Countess of Dufferin an experience repeated after another five years by
the Atlanta. In 1885, after another
lapse of four years, Sir Richard Sutton's Genesta was beaten by the Puritan, followed In 1886 by the victory
of the Mayflower over Lieut. Henn's
Galatea, and in 1887 with defeat of
the Thistle by the Volunteer. With
the exception of one day's sailing in
which the Livonia beat the Columbia
the Americans down to this time not
only won every contest, but each race
of every contest.
After the failure of    the Thistle,

Prices of lots in Prince Rupert have risen since the first sale In 1909. In the beginning—only
three years or so ago—the man or woman with a couple of hundred dollars could "get in" at
Prince Rupert. Today as many thousands would hardly suffice. Port Edward offers you a vast opportunity, similar to that offered by Prince Rupert a few years ago. Port Edward is controlled by
a company composed of some of the soundest business and professional men in Canada, many of
them Prince Rupertites. Its capital stock—$1,000,000—is all subscribed. A development fund of
$175,000 to take care of preliminary work has been provided and approximately $60,000 of this
fund has been expended. Of all Western Canada, no section offers such sterling opportunities just
now as the North Pacific. And of all the North Pacific, no place offers so certain, so solid an opening as (

This was a disputed contest. The

that steamers following the race interfered. Valkyrie III. came in ahead
on the second day, but was disqualified for a foul. On the third day
Lord Dunraven refused to sail,
charging that his opponent had added ballast after measurement. Sir

SCOTTISH TEAM.
According to the Scottish Weekly
Record, one of the best sporting papers in the land o' cakes, a Scottish
team will tour Cansda this summer.
At last it seems that the old Country
people are waking up to the fact that
a tour of Canada could be made a
paying proposition, (.'anadu has waited long and patiently for the visit
of a professional team. For many
years the Old Country professionals
have been touring South Africa, the
Argentine and the Continent, but for
the reason that Canada whs not affiliated with the International Football Federation this pleasure has
been denied Canadians. Says Bedouin
in the paper mentioned:
"I am delighted to learn from official sources that the S.F.A. contemplate sending a Scottish team out
to Canada this summer. The fostering or the Imperial spirit will knit
the Dominion closer to the Motherland. The Canadian papers take a
keen interest in Scottish football,
and results of our home matches are
given by them every Saturday-
night. "
It will be noticed that the writer
