The local company of the 102nd
Battalion, with the change in the
■weather, is able to get down to hard
work in drilling outside. Yesterday Squad's 1, 2 and 3 received several hours training on the Recreation
Grounds at Acropolis Hill. The men
made a magnificent showing. Capt.
Brandt, who is the offirer in com-
mnnd of the local company, Is proving himself a most efficient officer.
His drill is very exact, in consequence
of bis long training along this line.
His Instruction is of the very best,

While the fishing has been anything but good on the banks since
the New Year, there are not wanting
plenty of evidences that this is to
be a big year as far as Prince Rupert
is concerned in the fishing trade.
Boats are beginning to come in in
number, and while the catches so
far are light, there has in the aggregate been a very considerable
quantity brought to tne port. All the
boats that have come in have signified their intention of making this
their port for selling this season, so
that from now on there should be an
increasing number of fish coming in.
In addition to the shipments that
are being sent east over the G. T. P.,
there has been very large shipments
made daily by boat from here for the
south to meet the demand of'the
southern cities, where the supply arriving is not adequate to the needs
of the cities and tbe territory that is
supplied from those points.
During the twenty-four hours ending at midnight last night, there was

Mr. Cunningham has held the office of fruit pest inspector for years.
It is in no small way, due to his efforts, that the many forms of pests
that have proved so detrimental to
the fruit growing industry elsewhere
have been effectively kept out of
British Columbia. In consequence,
the fruit of this Province Is practically free from pests.

Very Heavy Damage
Caused To Waterfront
In New York Harbor
New York, Feb. 16.—Two seamen
are missing and damage estimated at
$5,000,000 has been done by a fire
which destroyed the steamships Bolton Castle and Pacific and forty lighters, together with their cargoes of
oil, cotton and munitions today at
the Atlantic docks in Brooklyn.
As the fire spread, the stores of
munitions aboard the ships and upon
Ihe    docks    and    waterfront    were
emles, because of ihe raising of an
American Legion for overseas service, the officers of the legion having
made the club their headquarters.
Earl F. Hussey, of Montreal, is
fatally injured and P. I. T-Turston, a
mining broker and formerly of Dallas, Texas, is dead. The staff and
resident members escaped, but Captain Asa Minard of the legion is Injured',
This season is to be an active one
in mining. This is made more and
more evident every day. The number of prominent mining men is increasing constantly, and there are
rumors of many important deals to
be carried into effect early in the
season. Some of these are now under
way.
The Roclier de Boule section is naturally attracting attention, owing to
the fact that there is there a fully
developed property that is making a
splendid showing, which always attracts the attention of real investors.
The Montana-Continental Development Company, under the management of Mr, Williams, is making a
fine showing. Mr. Oppenlieiiner, who
is very prominently identified with
the proposition, has made, by hl=
judicious management of affairs at
his mine, a showing that lias increased tho vaiue'uf. all other properties
in the vicinity. Steady shipments
are being made to the Granby smelter, in spile of the difficulties encountered during the present hard
winter, when it was necessary to in-
stal an auxiliary power in the shape
of a gasoline engine.
Negotiations are In progress for
tlie opening up of the Highland floy,
which adjoins the Montana-Continental property. Mr. Spauldlng, of
Spokane, who has I he necessary capital available, is negotiating for this
property, and it is likely that  work

Then the Red Cross, on the same
mountain, is likely to get into active
operation. The Skeena Copper Company, Limited, with Wm. McAdam,
of Edmonton, at, the bead, and embracing plenty of capital to carry out
the work, is getting ready for an active season. It is likely that the
mine will be developed fully this
year, to prove the values that are expected in the property.
This Is but in one part of the district. There are evidences of similar
activity in other sections of the district, so that the summer should see
all kinds of work in progress In the
mines.
Alice Arm still attracts a large

DEATH OF MB. CUNNINGHAM.
In the death of Thomas Cunningham, in Vancouver, the fruit growing industry has lost one of its greatest benefactors. As fruit pest inspector, Mr, Cunningham has for
years kept a very sharp lookout to
see that no fruit pests should be introduced into this Province. It is
true that he had to face Hie charges
sometimes laid, that he was too
Stringent in his rulings, but tb.rov.gl",
that rigid observance of the rules
laid down, he kept the fruit trees of
this Province practically free from
those diseases that in many parts
have ruined the industry. It was fortunate for the industry that he occupied the post at the time he did so,
for he was able to prevent the first
introduction of pests. Had a less
stringent inspector been on auty, it
is likely that some of these pests
might have got in. He has kept them
out and the trees are the wonder of
all who visit British Columbia.
Than.es it ■ ould only be brought as
far as Y.i'lwall, owing to unfavori.ie
winds and tides. However, the remainder of the journey was completed in safety.
Towed by the tug Tigress, the flagstaff pasesd Blackfriars Bridge at
half-past eight; three and a quarter
hours later il was safely moored
alongside th'- Kew Gardens' embankment.
The stick -. as shaped and flnisheo
lefore il left the Dominion, but in
order to get il from the river to the
site in the gardens, many things had
to be done, including the erection of
a special bridge.

Eye Troubles Corrected
Mr. Bulger has had over ten years experience in sight testing
and fitting glasses, and last mid-summer took a post graduate
course, which included the latest discoveries in tbo science of optometry or eye measuring. One ol the most imi ortant Is dynamic akiametry. The new method of Prof. A. J. Cross, of New
York, in which the eye is measured by a beam uf reflected light
and any error is recorded.
But we do nol simply rely on one method; each eye Is tested
separately, in three different ways, besides trying the muscular balance, together and the nervous  acuteness.
We use the new drugless methods, no drops in the eye and no

Notice! The Latest!
By persistent experimenting I have now evolved u system of heating two rooms in a residence with your kitchen range, besides supplying hot water for domestic uses, regardless of Ihe position of
the range holier. By the turning of one valve you turn your stove
into a house heating system. I am now trying to improvise a thei-
inostic automatic valve which will do away with the handling of nny
valves.
Now in use and on exhibition at  my shop,  180 Second Avenue.

COLD STORAGE TO
CONTRIBUTE MORE
TO PATRIOTIC FUNDS
Last year a subscription list was
opened by the Canadian Fish & Cold
Storage Company, Limited, for the
purchase by its employees of a machine gun. Within a week the sum
of $1,603.83 was subscribed and a
machine gun costing $1,000 was immediately purchased.
On Tuesday evening a mass meeting of the employees was called, Mr.
T. H. Johnson being in the chair, to
discuss the disposition of the surplus
of $603.83, when it was decideci,
amidst the greatest enthusiasm, to
present this sum to the Canadian
Patriotic Fund.
After a very appropriate address
on patriotism by Mr. Johnson, it was
unanimously decided that a further
amount should be raised by regular
monthly subscriptions from the employees, which will also be devoted
to the Patriotic Fund. A most enthusiastic meeting was brought to a
close by the singing of "God Save the
King."

TRAINING FOR
ACTUAL FISHERMEN
THE   IMPORTANCE   OF   SUCH   A
MOVE BROUGHT PROMINENT-
I.Y FORWARD
Any Cake Shown
for I0c.
Do Not Overlook These
Bargains
China   And  Japan   Are  Mailing  Advances In  This
Industry.
Ai a recent meeting of the Committee on Fisheries of the Commission of Conservation, Dr. J. W. Robertson, C.M.G„.gave an interesting
address on "Technical .Training for
Fishermen," deploring the fact that
we have no schools in Canada for
training fishermen, and giving instances of what European countries
are doing. Not only to Europe may
we turn for examples, but to Asia
as well. Japan has given very great
attention to instruction respecting
her fisheries, and her neighbor,
China, is also rapidly coming to the
front, as is shown in a recent China
edition of the Manchester Guardian,
which says:—
"Much has been done by the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce to encourage fishery on the
high seas. On April 28, 1914, regulations to promote the fishing industry on the high seas were Issued. A
eum of $i!0,000 was set aside in that
year, and this has been made an annual appropriation for the encouragement of the industry. Fishing ves-
srls must be Inspected before they
can engage in this business. Not a
few fishing boats have since been rewarded for meritorious service, and
it is expected that more money will
be devoted to this purpose.
"The first fishery school was established at Woosung in 1904, by the
Klang-Chi Fishery Company. The
Provinces of Chi-li and Mukden followed successively, and the curriculum in these schools was modeled
after that of the Woosung school. Tie-
sides these schools, there have also
been established fishery training
schools for the practical Improvement of fishing methods. In the third
year of tho Republic (1914), Ihe
Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce started to establish training
schools along the coast. Several
have already heen established  in the
Provinces of Chl-li, Cbekiang, Feng-
tlen, Fuklen, and Kwangtung, 3n the
Province of ChelUang a lone three
training schools have been established."
