ORGANIZED LABOR DECIDED AGAINST COMPULSION
CONSCRIPTION BILL HAS PASSED ITS FIRST READING
Resignations In Government Over The Conscription Bill
Over Three Hundred Lost When The Persia Was Sunk
Submarines Bought
On Pacific Coast
Were In Good Shape
Admiral Kingsmill, Director of the
Canadian Naval Service, was the star
witness last Thursday before Ihe
Davidson Investigating Commission,
which resumed its enquiry into the
purchase of the submarines on the
Pacific coast at the outbreak of the
■war.
Admiral Kingsmill stated that the
undervj 'or craft in question were
efficient in all particulars ami were
on a par with the British-made boats
cf the same class. He did not think
the price paid was an excessive one.
They had been tested by Commander
Keyes and found in Rood shape. The
latter was a very efficient naval officer and knew a great deal about
submarines, since he had been present at the trip for buoyancy and stability of nearly all the A class boats
in Britain. He was a British reserve
man and had since been recommended for work In the Dardanelles.
"What, have you to say about the
buoyancy and efficiency of these vessels?"  asked   Sir  Charles Davidson.
"Well, at the outset one of the vessels, the C. C. 2, showed an inclination to lose her buoyancy when Capt.
James endeavored to submerge her.
In fact, Capt. James did not seem to
desire to submerge her. Commander
Keyes looked her ovor at the dock
and found her bull slightly dented.
It was believed that she had struck
some object before she was purchased
by the Canadian authorities. The defect was later remedied."
"The Chilean Government," said
Sir Charles Davidson, "seemed averse
to making further payments on the
craft. Was it because they thought
they were defective, so far as buoyancy and stability were concerned?"
"Well, they are constantly out div
ing and firing torpedoes," repeated
Admiral Kingsmill. "The first day
they arrived Commander Keyes submerged one of them I the other had
the defect, but. it has been remedied
as I said'."
"Didn't the contract with the Chilean Government call for a test of two
months with provisions on board?
Did these vessels undergo such a
test?"
"No, they have not been away from
their present ship. They were purchased for coastal defence, not for
long cruising. They were not so
tested."
"What would you consider the
normal cost of building submarines
in Canada in normal times?"
"That is a difficult question to an
swer.    On the basis of the cost to
Australia, which laid down nine un-

Malcolm R. .1. Reid, of Vancouver,
Chief Immigration Office on ihe
coast, is in the city. He is here on an
inspection of the local office and is
looking into details connected with
the work in company with Dr. \.
McNeill, the local official in charge.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Reid and
Dr. McNeill met the council of the
Board of Trade and discussed with
that body, matters affecting the fishing industry. A number of points
relative to American fishermen becoming residents here, and the shipping of crews had been the subject
of correspondence and had been
satisfactorily adjusted.
A vote of thanks to Mr. Reid and
Dr. McNeill for their interest in the
matter  was  passed.
First Meeting Held
In Connection With
Municipal Campaign
The first public meeting of the
Municipal Campaign was held last
evening in the Carpenters' Hall, called by the Trades and Labor Council
of the city. It was addressed by the
candidates endorsed by the Trades
and Labor Council. The attendance
was not. large, about sixty being present. S. D. Macdonald, President of
the organization, presided and explained the object of the meeting.
During the evening the opportunity
was given for any additional nominations, under the Trades and Labor
Council, the Legislative Committee
to consider these and report later.
None were made, but the opportunity
will be given for two days to submit
names.
Aid. Casey.
The first speaker was Aid Casey,
ments of the last year's council.
He said that the city market'had
been an excellent thing. It did not
mean that one had to buy al the city
market only. It had meant that in
some cases dealers hail reduced their
prices, ann the public got the benefit
indirectly.
He did not deal at length with the
financial situation. He, however, endorsed the serial bond proposition.
It was a mistake t0 think that a
council could go in and live on taxes
year after year. The people had spent,
enough without some industrial development. The two million dollars
was enough. He was against starting up new work just to make a
"rustle." The city had a good fart
in the completion of the drydock

Aid. Casey referred to the proposition for the laying of Ihe pipe line
to Dlgby Island. He had voted for
the carrying on of that work, even on
a contract basis, if 45c an hour were
I paid, rather than sec the work not

He advised selecting men to safeguard    the    public    utiliiics,    which
should  be  run  on  a sane and  husi-
Iness-like basis and getting them down

SCOPE FOR THEIR
OPERATIONS
Not   Enough   Gniiil    Properties   Are
Offering To Meet The
Demands.
Recently reference was made to
the experience of the Canadian Mining & Exploration Company, which
is being voluntarily liquidated. Its
object was to investigate and exploit
mining and other proposed enterprises. Although it investigated 1,500
mining 'propositions, not one was
found, the owners of which would
sell .on terms warranting financial
promotion. The Monetary Times, of
Toronto, has discussed the position,
with several directors of the company. It had been in active business
for three years and  was established
on a very excellent basis. Its capital
was invested in first-class securities,
and out of part of the income of
these, the cost of exploration was
borne. The company will be able to

give the shareholders a moderate interest on the investment. But the interesting point is that after three
years' work nothing of value had
been discovered, and the company
concluded to return the capital it secured.
One of the Investors is a man who
has an intimate knowledge of the
mining Industry and of mining promotion, according to The Monetary
Timi s. He thinks that the fact that
the Canadian Mining & Exploration
Company was nol able to find good
property out ol 1,500 propositions
Bubmil ted, Is not al all strange, and
adds thai the proposals placed before capital by prospectors are Bur-
prising, Immediately a little gold or
silver is seen, prospectors claim to
have a mine. Prospects cannot be
passed by capitalists without' invest!-,
gation. "On the oilier hand," says
this director, "if one is requested to
become interested in a partially developed property the price that people ask is generally out of all proportion to what they have lo show.
They want to sell on Ihe basis of having a real mine, while they only
have something that may or may not
turn out to be a paying proposition.
Then, in regard to the fully developed mine, when one goes to buy that,
one finds that the other fellow knows
about as much in regard to it as the
proposed purchaser, and the only
reason why he is ready to sell is that
he thinks he will turn il into cash
more quickly by soiling than he
would by working ore out of the
ground.
"The fact is that there is as much
money spent in hunting for gold and
developing as ever comes out of the
ground."
That, then is the opinion of a practical man who has given this matter
careful consideration for years; and
he thinks the chances are not one in
a thousand that when there are indications of ore there will be a mine.
On the other hand, the experience
of the Canadian Mining & Exploration Company has been the experience of similar companies in the
United States and other parts of the
world. The inference must, not be
drawn that there are not. many good
mining properties in Canada. Most
of the valuable mines have been discovered more or less by accident. The
Canadian Mining & Exploration Company were not fortunate in that respect.

member of the Board of Works, he
had had to deal with the employment  of  men   for  city  work.     The
proposition. He had concluded then
that under the conditions here, it
would be difficult to live on lower
wages. He felt that the cost of living was the first thing to reuuee.
When that was done, then lower
wages for industrial concerns would
come. The city market would hel;
that.
The real motives behind the opposition to him, was the stifling of
the city market and the undermining
of the public utilities. They should
look out, or attempts would be made
to render the public utilities unproductive, and then turn them over to
private corporations.
There was a move now, for what
was termed a business council. In
1910 they had what was called a
business council. They remembered
what it did.

Hospital Board, had a part in the
reducing of the indebtedness of that
institution.
A question was asked if the hospital took care of patients sent in
from the outside. Aid. Nicol explained that the Government paid a per
capita amount on  all  patients, that
to  any  company  getting control  of
the utilities.
In 11)10 they had what was called
a "business council." In 1911 they
had a kind of half and half, because
he belonged to it. In 1912 they had
a "nun-business council." They started off with a debt of $762,763.20.
The business council had simply gone
and borrowed money. The bank advised the issue of Treasury Certificates, arguing that it would be inadvisable to sell bonds. The "nun-
business council." not only financed
that  $800,000, but also $300,000 to
met this expense. 1

asked to give any pledges to organized labor. Possibly this was due
to the fact that he had in the early
days   gone   on   record   on   the   wage
the Treasury Certificates for $1,300,-
000, lo be provided for by June 30.
Otherwise every dollar was paid up
to the fullest.   This financial position
was not due to the Mayor and aldermen alone. It was due to the good
capable heads that the city possessed,
and so the council had not cut and
slashed' the salaries of these capable
officials.
He had had his doubts, in the
earlier days, as to whether the bank
was doing all It could, but he was
well satisfied with the treatment this
year. If it had not come In as it
did, with respet to the Treasury Certificates, there was nothing that,
would have prevented the city going
into the hands of a receiver.
The city council was going out of
office with $25,000 of a surplus. The
big project before the new council
will be to dispose of the bonds to
cover the Treasury Certificates. So
far nothing had been done along this
line.
When such a proposition as the
disposal of $1,366,000 of bonds was
to come, It was wise of the citizens
t0 place men in power who could
be depended upon to deal in a perfectly straight forward way. He did
not hint that his opponents would
not do so, but there had been some
considerable sums made out of just
such propositions, and it was well to
warn them.
Last year's levy was the lowest
made by the city since the introduction of the local improvement system.
His opponent did not tell them
what he was going to do. If these
people wanted a progressive city,
why did they not, through the Board
of Trade or any other avenue, make
their propositions, when he felt sure
the council would accept It.
In concluding, the Mayor said that
he never felt ashamed of being af-
filated with labor. Labor influences
had been associated with all those
things that made for the building up
of the city. He \youId say that any
damnable influences had originated
with thoso opposed to labor.
