MAYOR SUBMITS REPORT OF MISSION SOUTH
City Council Discuss Questions Affecting Prince Rupert
British  Empire Expect To Retain Control Of The Air
The City Council
Discuss Action Taken
By City Organizations
TRADES COUNCIL
PETITION COUNCIL
Before the adjournment of the
City Council last evening Aid. Casey
brought to the notice of the Board
the fact that other organizations in
the city were attemping to arouse activity in certain directions,.
He said that the Board of Trade
at a recent meeting had passed resolutions and had otherwise taken action in reference to local conditions
as affected by the G, T. P. He pointed
out that the Retail Merchants intended holding a meeting in the course
of the next few days, which he
thought was for some public spirited move. He was of the opinion that
the City Council should get in with
these bodies if they are running a
safe line. It would be a good policy
for the Mayor and Council to consider this matter. An attempt should
be made to bring some activity out
of the drydock. He was aware that
Mr. J. H. Pillsbury had gone to Winnipeg, and that possibly that there
was going to he activity at the dock.
But he thoughl that the council
should join with these other bodies
and bring this matter to the attention of the Grand Trunk Pacific.
Some time ago there was talk of a
lease. He referred to the Cotton petition for a lease of the drydock,
which was taken to Ottawa and
brought before the Hon. R. L, Borden. A person did not want to seem
ridiculous, and last year no action
was, taken by the council. He claimed
that Hon. Sir R. L. Borden blocked
the leasing of the drydock and continued to do so. He thought that the
Mayor ought to submit some policy
and get in with the other organizations and find out why the Prime
Minister blocked this movement, and
also find out why the G. T. P. did
not take some action in the city.
In replying to Aid. Casey, the
Mayor said that he understood that
some of these other organizations
that had been referred to had instituted a blockade on the G. T. P. for
not making this port their headquarters. That being the case, it would
not be within the jurisdiction of the
council to take tiny action in connection with a boycott. He was quite
willing that they should get together
and attempt to starl the drydock or
anything else. There should nol he
any trouble getting together collectively. As an Instance of this, he referred to the Fisheries' Delegation
that had left for Ottawa and what
they  had  accomplished. ,
Aid. McCIymonl remarked ihat
the Fisheries' Delegation had met
with some success, but it was regrettable that the most aggressive
member of tlie committee had nni
gone to Ottawa. At least lie said fhi«
seemed to be the consensus 'if opinion. He did not know whether they
got as much as possible.
r Aid. Montgomery in reply, said
that he was not particular about go-
ine to Ottawa with Ihe delegation.
He was glad that they had met with
success. What he had done was done
in the interests of everv one. He
would have liked to have seen more
of the legislation passed this year,
Instead of having to wait until next
year. But he was pleased that the
city had got what they did. He said
that there was more work to do than
people imagined. The fish were becoming depleted. This, should be
taken up with the proper authorities
and pointed out that restrictions
ought to be put on. People did not
realize what the depletion meant.
Years ago nothing was put up but
the sockeye salmon, and a full pack
was to be had. This year only a fifty
per cent, pack was put up. We should
have restrictions or the fight went
for nothing.
Aid. McRae in discussing the fishery end of the discussion, said that
he had talked with a fisherman and
had asked him if there was anything
to the depletion argument. The fisherman informed him that there was
a great deal to it. But the reason
was that in years past, when the fish
were plentiful, the smaller halibut
and cod had been thrown hack into
the water. As a result the bottom of
, the bays had become fouled. Scavenger fish had been attracted and had
driven the better class of fish out.
He also gave Aid. Montgomery credit
for the work he had done on the
Fisheries, Committee.
No action was taken by the council, notwithstanding the lengthy discussion.

At the City Council last evening

Council:
Prince Rupert, B. C, Jan. 24, 1917.
To the Mayor and Aldermen
of the City of Prince Rupert,
Gentlemen,—
At a regular meeting of the Prince
Rupert Trades and Labor Council,
held in Carpenters' Hall, Prince Rupert, on the 23 day of January, 1917,
j the following resolution was moved
j and seconded and carried unanimous-
ly:
WHEREAS, it is found that the
present provision of the Municipal
| Clauses Act, which provides that cor-
I porate companies have votes as companies, and that also the members
of said companies have individually
votes, thus giving a plurality of votes
to one business concern, is not in
harmony with true democracy and is
a menace to just representations;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOI.\rED
I that this Council petition the Mayor
and Aldermen of the City of Prince
Rupert to use its best endeavors to
have this clause in the Municipal
Clauses Act duly repealed.

H. H. Asquith Declares That Naval,
Military And Economic Resources Of Allies Ensure Victory.
London, Feb. 5.—In a speech at
L'adybanb to his constituents, former
Premier Asquith said that the naval,
military and economic resources of
the Entente Allies assured them inevitable victory.
"A notion that the struggle is
about to come to squalid ends—to result in a stalemate—is a mere
dream,"  he said.
"The fortunes of battle may fluctuate and shift, but if all the influences at work are taken into comprehensive account, every month of the
conflict becomes more unequal, and
tlie balance of success more and more
in favor of the Allies."
Referring to the new German submarine campaign, Mr. Asquith said:
"It is Impossible to dispute the
gravity of the situation, hut the navy-
has been supplemented by other
measures, such as arming of iner-
chantrnen;   acceleration of new ton-

2. Legislation to enable us to legally have a Reserve Fund.
3. To persuade the Government to
place a reserve on the Work Channel waterpower, and any other powers tributary to this city; and, in addition to placing a reserve on same,
to hold such powers without payment
until, such time as the city has developed  the same.
