HON.  SAM  HUGHES  DKEKNDS
THE CHOICE OF THE
DEPARTMENT.
The
Nanaimo Strike Was    Up
Consideration  in  the
House,
for
Ottawa, Feb. 7.—Two questions
engaged the attention of the House
to the exclusion of all other topics
through the long sitting of yesterday—the dispute of tbe National
Rifle Association with Great Britain
over the Ross Rifle, and the Nanaimo
strike. Mr. E. M. McDonald introduced the Ross rifle discussion in a
brief speech in which he expressed
the hope that the minister of militia would adhere to his determination not to send a team to Great
Britain unless the War Office ruling
against the aperture of the sight was
withdrawn.
Col. Sam Hughes, In an emphatic
speech, said he did not propose to
do so. The new regulation was aimed at the Canadian arm because it
was a superior weapon, the Lee-Enfield being obsolpte. The minister
said the War Office was always
adopting fads, the figure target being one of them.
The Nanaimo strike was talked of
when the estimates of the department of labor came up. Mr. F. B.
Carvell charged the minister with
incompetency aud neglect, in dealing
-with the matter. He said the report
of Commissioner Price was cut off
at the day the rioting commenced
:and that the situation was glossed
■over in the Labor Gazette.
Minister Crotners replied with
heat,. He said Commissioner Price
returned from the West, before the
trouble started and made his report before the minister's departure
from England. The minister reviewed the matter and said every possible effort, had been made to bring
the miners and the employers together, but there was difficulty and
it had been a particularly hard matter to deal with because neither
side would admit that a strike existed.
TITLE TO LAND
PASSES TO CITY
O Paris, Feb. 7.—Mons. Duroquier,
a well-known electrlcan, makes an
interesting announcement relative
to modern science. He says there is
every reason to believe thai wireless
waves have been the cause of
many of the recent catastrophies.
Notable among the catastrophies
which he attributes as likely to
have been caused in this way are
the burning at sea of the Uranian
liner Volturno, tbe Cardiff mine
disaster, the destruction of the
French battleship Liberte at Toulon
This scientist says that as a re-
suit of the series of experiments
made by him midway between the
Eiffel Tower and the Rochefort
wireless stations he has been able to
show that whenever two stations are
sending simultaneously an Inexplicable phenomenon is produced at the
intersection of the waves. Two glass
globes filled with inflammable gas,
be says, were exploded by the disturbance, although unconnected
with any of the antennae of his apparatus. He points out that the
scenes of the various disasters mentioned were midway between different stations on the earth's surface.

The title to the lands that, are being- transferred by the Grand Trunk
Pacific to the city of Prince Rupert under the agreement entered
into two years ago is now passing
to the city. There has been some delay in tiie matter at Victoria, but
the whole question is now in order
and the deeds pass to the city.
Under this arrangement it is expected that the work ou the drill
hall site will start very shortly.
Until the title to the land was received by the Government at Ottawa
nothing would be done. The city will
»ow be able to make the necessary
transfer of the land and so the
work of putting up the drill hall
may proceed.

Shale Lands    in    New    Brunswick
Will lie Itilized by the
Concern.
Following closely upon the announcement of Lord Murray of Eli-
bank that the British Government
had failed in its negotiations to secure South American oil fields,
comes the statement that "Oil Processes, Limited," a Canadian concern, capitalized at £1,400,000 sterling, approximately $7,000,000, is
prepared to supply all the oil needed  for  British   battleships.
"Oil Proresses, Limited " lias been
recently incorporated at Ottawa and
has a charter thai enables It to enter all sorts of business, from the
manufacture of oil products to the
building of ships and railroads. The
head office is to be in Ottawa, and
Lrii.awa men are named as the directors, while an Ottawn firm, Perkins,
Fraser & McCorinick, are the legal
advisers of the company. However, it
is said in Montreal that the real control is held by English and French
capitalists.
The company recently acquired the
shale lands of Senator Domville, of
Rothsea, N.B., at a cost of $400,-
000. These shale lands situated in
Queen's county, some eighty miles
from St. John, are said on expert
opinion to contain at least 1,000,-
000,000 tons of shale. From tbis the
company proposes to manufacture
cement, sulphate of ammonia, and
oil for various purposes, principally
fuel. It Is said that when the concern is thoroughly established there
will be work for eight thousand
men.
The lands are on the line of the
Mackenzie and Mann Railway, and
adjacent to shale lands owned by the
railway magnates.
That the new lighthouse at Cape
St. James will be placed in commission by February IB is tne announcement made by Mr. A. R. W. Wilby,
district, engineer to the marine and
fisheries department, who has Just
returned from the Queen Charlotte
Islands. Mr. Wllby expressed himself
as well satisfied with the manner
in which the light, which is one of
the most Important on the entire
coast, had been brought to a state
of completion.
All weathers have been experienced since the actual work of construction was started early last
year, but subsequent to the laying
of the concrete base tbe progress
was rapid, until at the present time
the most exposed point of Queen
Charlottes is equipped with one of
the finest lights to be found on the
British  Columbia  Coast.
The tower is built of solid con-
crete and is surmounted by a powerful third-order lantern the rays of
which are capable of penetrating
24 miles seaward.
Mr. Wilby states that the lantern
is now in position, and the work of
adjusting the light Is being carried
out. Mr. Taylor Ash will be light-
keeper at Cape St. James.

GOVERNMENT SHIPS TO
BE  BUILT IN  CANADA
Hon. J. I). Hazen    Announces'  That
That  Is  Policy  of  His
Department.
While the estimates of the minister of marine and fisheries were
going through the House at Ottawa,
Hon. Mr. Lemleux asked what tin;
Government's policy was in regard to
giving the advantage in building
ships to Canadian firms.
"My policy," replied Mr. Hazen,
"Is to have all vessels possible built
in Canada. In calling for tenders we
are insisting that vessels for the
Maritime Department must be built
In this country. There is no protection for ship building in Canada and
the rate of wages is lower In Great
Britain than in this country. Canadian ship builders are at a great
disadvantage. Two dredges are being
built at Collingwood at the present
time and tenders for ice-breakers
just in had a clause that they must
be built  in Canada."
"I sincerely congratulate the minister  on  the    announcement  of  his
policy," added Mr. Letuleux,    "it is
good news to every Canadian."

AUSTRALIA  NBKDS MEN
EXCAVATION FOR
SUBWAY WELL ON
At Government Place Blasting of
Rock In Way of Basement Entrance Is Now Nearly Completed—
The Archway Will Soon Be Commenced  Allowing Road Overhead
The preparations for the subwayO'
that is to lead from the alley running from Third Avenue to the Inner circle at Government Place,
into the basement of the massive
buildings that the Provincial Government plans there, is well advanced. To the casual observer the work
of putting in retaining walls and
blasting out the rock that has been
occupying the attention of a large
gang of men for some time was a
little hard to understand. Now that
it is assuming its present shape the
ultimate plans are easily  taken  In.
The rock has almost iall beeu
taken out under what will be part of
the roadway above it. The blasting
operations are now confined to the
dressing off of the inside wall
where the building will come in.
Through the cut that has been
made from the present level there
will be an archway with a clear
height of 12 feet. Over this there
will be a filling of rock made so
that the street above will differ in
nowise from what It is elsewhere
along the way. By means of the subway entrance will be gained to the
basement of Ihe building by a very-
easy grade from Third Avenue.
It is the intention to cut. the rock
through the building site to the subway that is to come iu from First
Avenue, directly opposite. The finishing off of the entrance to the subway will be in a style to add materially to the appearance of the place.

Tacoma, Feb. 7.—Despite tbe
heroic efforts of Joe Fuche during
a fire which destroyed his place,
two children were burned to death
in their bed. Fuche and his wife had
returned from the barn on their
place to the house which had only
recently been completed and furnsb-
ed. As they arrived at the house it
was bursting into flames.
The woman's frantic efforts to
enter the place were defeated with
the rush of the flames. Fuche was
badly burned in bis efforts to reach
the children's bedrooms. He succeeded in rescuing the third baby, which
is only a few months old and which
had beeu left in the kitchen.
Explosion of the oil stove is believed to have been the cause of tbe
fire.

Property-owner    of   Commonwealth
Says Development Is Held  Hack
Through  l«tck of Labor.
Ottawa. Feb. 7.—In view of the
action of the War Office, which prevents tiie use of the Ross Rifle, since
it has only a peep sight, and this;
kind of sight has been prohibited |
at Bisley matches, it has been sug-'
gested from the Militia Department
that the minister of militia loan the
territorials of Great Britain a sufficient number of the Ross rifles for
the use of those intending to compete in the big matches. The feeling
is growing that. Canada will not be
represented at Bisley meet. tbi3 year.
Col. A. G. Cox, who iias large property interests in Tasmania, is in
Vancouver. He stated that the chief
drawback to the prosperity of Australia was the great scarcity of labor.
Development work was held back
through this cause and the immigration from the Mother Country was
far from sufficient to fill the demand.

GREATEST FISH PORT
IN THE WORLD
Hon, J. D. Hazen Minister of Marine
and Fisheries Makes Statement In
House of Commons Concerning
the City of Prince Rupert-Results
of His Visit  Here  Last Summer
The advantages of a visit, like
that paid by Hon. J.- t). Hazen,
minister of marine and fisheries, to
Prince Rupert last summer are not
easily over-estimated. There is no
questiou that the minister on that
trip became greatly impressed with
the  outlook  here.
A further evidence of this was
given in the House of Commons a
few days ago, when Hon. J. D.
Hazen agreed that there existed the
possibility of an Immense development in the fishing industry of both
the East and the West.
lie expressed the belief that after
the completion of the G.T.P. when
the fisheries of Northern British
Columbia have been developed,
Prince Rupert will probably become
the  greatest   fish  exporting   port   In
tiie  world.
Su"|i a statement as this coming
from a man occupying the important
position that Mr. Hazen does Is sure
to carry weight in the investing
world. It is safe to say that the
minister did not make the statement
without feeling well assured on the
point.
I'nder the circumstances this port
may well put forth every effort to
secure all the advantages that the
rishing Industry can bring to It. In
H. S. Clements, M.P., the city has
a decided friend who Is trying to secure all the business in the city that
can be secured. H1b efforts on behalf of free bait should be backed
up by every public body In the city.

HEROISM  IN THE CHURCH.
There Is ;ui Impression thai the.
battlefield alone breeds heroism and
thai there is no manifestation of this
elsewhere. Happily, the Christian
Church lias iis heroes us well as the
Army ami the Navy, li lias ever
been so and there are nol wanting
instances even in these later days
of the truth of the statement that
there are still valiant souls performing their duty on behalf of Christianity. Rev. William Hogan is a prominent example of this. His valiant
spirit shown In the face of death
will stand as one of the surest
proofs among the Indians to whom
he ministered that there is a reality
in the religion that he taught. His
example shown in the last hours oi
his life when he fearlessly and j
with method set. himself about the
task of preparing for his departure
constitutes a sermon that will live
long in the memory of all who were
brought to see it or to hear of It.
There appears to have been something heroically pathetic about the
old missionary's end, just as there
was in connection with so many of
the episodes of his life. Ills admonition to the Indians of his choir to
follow his words, using them as a
beacon light, with the request, that
he be laid at rest close to the lighthouse where the strength of the
wind and the waves would be- the
heaviest,     indicates   the     wonderful
place British Columbia s mineral
production Is taking with reference
to thai of the whole of i anada, Mr,
Robertson's bulletin gives this province's proportldn to that of the Do-
tuiniiin as 2i\ per cent, in a twenty-
eight-year period. The aggregate
for all Canada during iliut period
is placed at $1,521,000,000 (which
allows for a 1918 Dominion total of
$150,000,000, an amount nearly
$15,000,000 greater than that of
I ii 11'I and British Columbia's proportion for the same period as
$39.",,oho,nun. This large percentage is certainly a striking illustration of British Columbia's advance
in mining development, especially as
it. is shown that nearly 36 per cent,
of the aggregate British Columbia
production of $395,000,000 in the
twenty-eight-year period is to be
credited to the last five years, 1909-
1913, while nearly 54 per cent, was
produced during eight years, 1906-
1913.

THE ADVANTAGES
OF PARCEL POT
SOME <>l-   Till:     BENEFITS THAT
WILL COME TO THE
PUBLIC.
Arrangements    .Made  Willi  Railway
Companies to Carry tin-
Mail.
It is believed by 'he officials ol
the Postoffice Department ai Ottawa
that the parcels post, when it comes
into effect, on February Hi, will
prove to be a great boon to persons
desirous 'of sending smiall (parcels
by mail to points within a radius of
twenty miles from the postoffice at
which they mallMbem and for people living in country places.
a careful comparison of the parcels post rates with those -if the
express companies shows thai on all
panels weighing eleven pounds and
under tbe rales within Hie 20-mile
radius of any postoffice or within
the same provincial zone are invariably less than those of the express companies within the same
territories. Tiie advantage of sending
parcels by post by the new department of the service lo the different
provinces of Western Canada rather
than by express is very apparent,
since the parrel post rates are governed solely by the 20-mile and provincial zones, whereas the express
rates are determined more by distances from one point to another
and by the question whether there
is competition between the transmitting and receiving stai ions of the express company
The cities of Ottawa and Montreal are placed somewhat at a disadvantage, because both of the cities
are near the boundaries of their respective provinces. This means that
a package sent parcel post from
Toronto to Montreal will be carried
for exactly the same rate as one sent
from Ottawa to Montreal, and, be-,
cause of the competition of the ex-:
press companies hetween Ottawa and
Montreal, the express rates are lower
than in many other parts of the
country. The result is that it, will be
cheaper to send a parcel weighing
more than five" pounds by express
from Ottawa to Montreal than by
parcel post. The effect of the competition of express companies Is
made very apparent by the fact that
between Toronto and Montreal,
where the competition is Keen, the
rates are the same as between Toronto and Kingston, where- lite company has exclusive rights and the
distance Is  only  aboul   half.
lion. L. P. Pelletier has made an J
even better bargain with the railways for (be carriage of Ihe mails
and parcels posl (han was hinted at
in the statement Issued from the department, a few clays ago. 11 was
stated then thai (he railroads would
gei something under $1,000,000 as
an addition to the $2,000,000 they
now receive They had been asking
St 000,000 for tiie carriage of the
regular mails, and were demanding
a further additional sum for Hie parcels post. They get. neither of their
demands. The railroads in future
will be paid on a new basis, that of
car mile instead of track mile. The
accountants of the postoffice department have been figuring out what
the railroads will be entitled to this
year, and il will be but $786,000
over the $2,000,000 now paid.
There will lie nothing additional for
parcels post. The service wff[ be inaugurated on the morning cJf February 10, when Mr. Pelletier will
formally  mail  the first  parcel..
England's Latest Addition to
the White Hope Class
Bandsman Blake, the latest English entrant into the class of prospective heavy veight champions, is matched with Bombardier Wells, who
was recently defeated by Carpentler, the French champion the fight to
take place March 3 in London, The purse of $4,000 will be split 75
per cent, to the winner and 25 per cent, to the loser. There is also a
side bet of $2,500. Carpentler has agreed to fight Blake if he defeats
Wells. When Robert Fitzsimmons heard that a purse of $4,000 had
actually been arranged for Blake and Wells, the lanky one blinked his
eyes and looked wistfully over his farm, evidently contemplating how
long it would take crops to grow that would yield such a profit. Bob's
pride received somewhat of a solar plexus when his contemplated boir
in New York was halted on tiie ground that he was so old that he might
get knocked out—permanently. Personally, Corbett's conqueror oe-
lieves he has some good punches left in him and that he is not a fit
