Cairo, Feb. 3.—An official statement given out says that during
Tuesday the enemy attempted to
cross the Suez Canal near Toussom.
The Turks were permitted to bring
the bridging material to the bank of
the canal unmolested, but directly
they started bridging operations our
troops attacked the enemy. The latter fled in great disorder, leaving all
their material in our hands. Several
of the enemy were drowned in the
disorder which followed.
The enemy also attacked us on
the Elkantra front. They were easily
repulsed.
The loss was sixteen killed and
wounded, and forty taken prisoners.
Our casualties were only three men
wounded.
Moratorium Legislation Is Introduced
Victoria, Feb. 3.«—A bill lias been introduced into the Legislature giving power to the court to postpone the payment of the

UNFOUNDED CHARGES
WORKS MISCHIEF
Judge Young Resigned From Hospital
Board Owing To The Unfair Tactics Of Local Paper That Sought
To Make Political Capital—Resig-
nation Not Accepted
The pernicious influence of slanderous attacks upon Institutions in a
city is well borne out by what has
occurred In connection with the
Hospital work here. Judge Young,
who was elected a director of the Institution, has resigned from the
Hoard as a direct result of the Liberal organ In this city trying to
niiike political capital out of what
should never be regarded in that
light.
The resignation was conveyed to
the Board through a letter written
by the Judge to the president and
which was read at the meeting of
the directors held last night. The
letter speaks for itself. It was as
follows:
Prince Rupert, Feb.  2,  1915.
O. H. Nelson, Esq.,
President of the Hospital   Board
Prince Rupert, B.C.
Dear Sir,—On account of the unfortunate suggestion made by "the
News" that the present Hospital
Board has degenerated Into a political machine and in view of the position which I occupy In this city and
district, I deem it impossible for me
to lie drngged Into any controversy
of this nature. Under these circumstances I hereby tender my resignation as a member of your Board.
This will leave a vacancy which can
be filled by any one of the parties
who share this view, and who therefore can, so far at least as my experience goes, satisfy himself how
unfounded and unfair such a sweeping charge is.
I exceedingly regret that I consider myself obliged to take this
course as I looked forward with

HERRING   FISHERIES
On French Frontiers
Attacks By Germans
Have Been Repulsed
The thoughts of all Constantinople
if not all of Turkey, have suddenly,
as if by magic, become centered
upon one single man, says a Constantinople despatch.
By a strange oddity, too, this man
is not the one who for the moment
is most in the public eye. Enver
Pasha, with his 32 years, his imperial alliance, his ministry of war
and his grand ambition to put the
old Turkish empire back on the
map, awakens no especial interest
in the Turkish mind.
Enver is a dare-devil boy, they
say, who has secured for himself the
chance to have his fling, and they
are quite willing that he have it. If
he makes good, all very well. They
are willing that he have all the
credit and reward for it, too. But if
he doesn't make good—well, that is
how all Turkey has suddenly begun
thinking about another man, and
who, by way of strange contrast, Is
the one who at the present moment
is farthest from the public eye.
Abdul Hamld, the old Sultan, the
man whom the boy Enver put down
and out, and by whom he is now
kept shut up in a little white prison
palace over on the opposite shores
of the Bosphorus—this is the man
of mystery, the man of hypothetical j Norwegian Coast. Some fifteen years
possibilities about whom Turkey has ago he and his staff investigated the
Mr. W. H. Hamar Greenwood,
managing director of the Skeena
River Fisheries, Ltd., received word
from Prof. A. B. Macallum of To
ronto University, secretary-treasurer
of the Biological Board of Canada
that Dr. Hjort, head of the Norweg
Ian Fisheries Service, is to spend six
or seven weeks on the Pacific Coast
to look into the fishery problems.
He will arrive in Vancouver shortly.
Last year the board secured the
services of Dr. Hjort to inquire into
the herring resources of Canadian
waters. Ho spent last summer in
making an elaborate study of the
herring fisheries, from the Bay of
Fundy to Labrador. The herring
fisheries of Norway are many times
more valuable than those of Canada, owing to the efficient methods
of fishing, and the more complete
knowledge of the fishing grounds
possessed by Norwegian fishermen 1
due  to  scientific  investigations.
In his letter to Mr. Greenwood,
Prof. Macallum says: "Dr. Hjort is
engaged to stay in Canada until next
September to take up the study of
the distribution of the herring off
(not "on") the Atlantic Coast, in
order to determine whether the herring distribution is like that off the

north of Hassiges.

that   Enver   and   the   Young    Turks

This is the great Turkish question

An outstanding feature of tbe address was the minister's expressing

; Mr. Ross demonstrated that criticisms which had been directed towards the Government in connection with the sales of land arose
rather from the fact that It hail been
able to achieve very satisfactory results from the proceeds under the
sales of the land. During the ton
years beginning in MOB and ending
at the end of 1914, the governments
of the day, be explained, had consented to the sale of over live million acres. The amount received
from this source in cash amounted
to over twelve and one-half million
dollars, and the receipt and expend!-

MISCHIEVOUS   MEDDLERS.
We had occasion to take exception
to the mischievous work that the
Liberal organ has been guilty of in
its anxiety to drag politics into
everything and its culpable ignorance on matters it deals with. Today
we have to announce the results ot
this policy. Judge Young, wiibse
presence on the Board of Directors
of the Hospital should have been the
subject of the greatest congratulation to the institution and the   city,
rather than submit to the danger of
criticisms from the embryonic editor
of the News. While it is to be
hoped that the Judge will reconsider
his stand and remain on the Board,
one can appreciate fully the view he
takes of the situation
cial capacity he is called upon to
keep himself apart from all things
that would be productive of discussions that might appeal to partyism
or any of the other disturbing elements in any community.
On the other hand, the presence
of the Judge on any board would
surely be enough to dispel any feeling that anything shady was being
attempted.
any other equal period of time.
Dealing with what was popularly
known as the period of the land
boom in British Columbia, the minister expressed the opinion that the
amount of land purchased in such
period was rather dependent upon
the caprice of the public rather than
because of any statutes that were
enacted by the Dominion or any departmental legislation that had been
placed before the Legislature from
time to time. The term of oflice ot
the present administration had seen
one restriction after another, . both
in tlie statutes and in a departmental
way.
During the course of bis speech,
Mr. Ross quoted in support of his
arguments a mass of statistical in
formation. In 1905 the land sales
amounted to 50,000 acres; in lilOli
they rose to 225,0oil acres. In 1909
appeared the first symptoms of the
land boom, for during that year no
less than 645,000 acres were sold.
The highest stage was reached in
1010, when 2,000,000 acres were
sold. In 1911 prices advanced to $10

The sale of Product No. 99 Is strictly
confined to the high-class supply
houses. Its cost of manufacture is
therefore not affected by Dept. or
"price cutting store" influence that
so often drives manufacturers to the
use of inferior chemicals and processes. Nor is the dealer allowed to
reduce the retail price under penalty
of   having   his   supply   terminated.

were 121,000, while last year they

A great deal had been said in reference to the question of arrears on

THOROUGH SURVEY.
He    Deplored    the    Destruction    of
Other Fish on the
Hanks.
Prof. Arthur Willey, Profesfor of
Zoology  at  McQill    University,   who
be remembered, Prof. Willey says,
that the eggs are exceedingly small,
not more than one-sixth of an inch
in diameter, and that they float free.

that the halibut is a summer spawning fish, and that the ripe parent
halibut occur not in the shallow waters  of  Hecate  Straits    but   in    the
the waters of   Dixon   Entrance   and
Hecate Straits are territorial.
Dr. Willey points out that the de
struction of many fish not used for
food, but for whicli a market might
be created, is very serious. He quotes
Dr. Evermann, a United States authority, "that for every halibut
caught at least one other fish of
more or less value as food is taken
on the hooks." Bedrock fishes, black
cod, deep sea soles, flounders and
skates are the principal species wasted, the' enormous quantity exceeding probably one-half of the weight

Priest,    Preacher   and    Rabbi    Said
Prayers Over Graves of
Dead.
A curious religious situation arose
after one of the recent battles In the
Argonne. Large numbers of dead lay
on the battlefield awaiting interment, and the question presented itself, what prayers or ceremonies
ought to be said or performed ovei
them?
After the civil and military authorities had consulted It was decided to send to the battlefield two
Catholic priests, a Protestant clergyman and a Jewish rabbi. All four
were mounted in an automobile,
and on reaching their destination the
rabbi, as senior in age, was charged
with the task of saying a prayer of
a general nature. When this was
over prayers were said in turn by
the Catholic priests in Latin, by the
Protestant clergyman in French and
by tlle rabbi in Hebrew.
When the ceremony was finished
the four ecclesiastics drove back together to Verdun, taking lunch with
the cure of a village on the way to
the town.

sider the step.
In moving that the letter be laid
on tbe table, the vice-president, G.
W. Morrow, said that he felt very
keenly the ^ituatioa. The Hospital
was an institution that every citizen
should feel ready to get in and do
his best for. That was what had
prompted the .fudge he knew in accepting the position on the Board.
The insinuation that had been
thrown out in a local paper was uncalled for, he felt. It placed him
(Mr. Morrow) also li a very awkward position. He hau. in conversation with D. (J. Stewart, the past
president of the institution, brought
this question up. Mr. Stewart had
assured him there was absolutely
no foundation for the charges made.
He had further assured him that he
would be ready to give any kind of
statement to that effect.
Mr. Morrow said that the insinuation had placed him in a position
where he had felt almost called upon
to follow the course taken by Judge
Young, for his only reason for going
onto the Board was to help in a good
cause. He proposed that the whole
Board wait on Judge Young and attempt to induce him to reconsider
his stand.
Aid. Maitland seconded the motion. He contended that he had no
reason to believe there was any
truth in the charge. He hoped that
Judge Young would reconsider his
stand.
Dr. Ctoyton said, that he lamented
the fact that It became necessary to
have to take cognizance of such Irresponsible statements as those
made by one who purported to be an
editor.
The  motion  carried   unanimously.
