Last night was the annual meeting of tho Prince Rupert Club, when
reports for the year were presented
and directors named for the ensuing
twelve mouths. The meeting was
presided over by H. P. Wilson,- the
president for last year. The reports
presented were very gratifying.
For the ensuing year the ten directors elected were as follows: E.
F. Doyle, A. T. Broderlck, .1. H. Mc-
Mullln, H. F. MacLeod, Joseph
Howe, .1. F. Brandt, J. Arthur Smith,
S. R. McMordie, F. H. Mobley, and
C.  H.  Ornie.
At a meeting of the directors
held immediately after the balloting
for the directors, officers were named
London, Feb. 1.—The batteries
protecting Dover opened lire on what
lis thought to have been another
Gorman raid. It is not known definitely whether It was a Zeppelin attack, one by submarines, or by both.
This has not been ascerlained.
An early report from Dover said
that live hostile airships were observed over the town, while a later
report announced that they had been
driven off by gun fire from the forts.
Another Dover message declared
that the lire had been directed
against   German   submarines.
The War Office has instructed the
London police to make all preparations for an air raid. The city in consequence of these instructions was
soon in darkness.
A new water schedule is to be
introduced in tbe city. An amended
bylaw will have to be introduced,
but as the schedule of rates Is practically the whole bylaw it was decided last night that no action hould
be taken until the next meeting.
The schedule as prepared by the
water committee was presented last
night. Members of the Council had
had copies forwarded to them, but
several had not gone into the new
rates and it was decided to wait until the next meeting before the matter should be put in the form of a
bylaw. It is proposed to make any
revisions thought necessary before
this is done.

a reduction of about 33 per cent, on
an average. Instead of penalizing
good sanitary arrangements, as under the old bylaw, this bylaw encouraged such. A five-room house under the old bylaw would have cost
about $15. Under this one it would
be  $11.
Aid. Montgomery complained that
a man with four rooms would have
to pay $10.
Aid. Edge said he had gone into
tIlls bylaw carefully. He felt that
they should make every utility pay
its way.
The city engineer in reply to Aid.
Beveridge said that under this bylaw the revenue would  reach   about

When the schedule was presented It was decided to postpone aclion

TARIFF TAXATION MAX
BE   RAISER   BY   BUDGET
Minister    of    Finance     Is      Devising
Means of Raising New
Revenues.
The finance minister at Ottawa is
wrestling with the problem of devising for the coming year the raising
of new revenues to the extent of at
least $15,000,000 by new taxation,
to meet the ordinary cost of administration.
While the character of the new
taxation will, of course, not be officially disclosed until lion. Mr.
White presents his budget statement
there is good reason to believe that
it will take three forms, first, increased tariff taxation on a considerable list  of imports;    second,   in
creased  excise taxes;   and,  third, di- Edward   Island,    $1,280,4'47
red taxation in the nature of stamp
taxes on legal and banking documents, on loiters patent for federal
incorporations, on federally-chartered institutions, and also possibly on
the manufacture and sa'e of all proprietary  medicines.
The increased tariff taxation Is
likely to include higher customs duties on all luxuries, such as jewelry,
diamonds, etc., on certain classes of
wearing apparel, such as silks and
velvets, and on some items of general use, such as tea and coffee. The
increase in excise duties will probably include another demand on the
manufacturers of liquor and tobaccos. The stamp tax on legal documents, promissory notes, bills of ex-
change,  etc.,  will  likely  follow   the
The annual report of the Department of Marine and Fisheries of
the Dominion are the most extensive
in the world. It likewise noted that
tbe waters in nnd around Canada
contain the principal commercial
food fishes in greater abundance
than the waters of any other part
of the world.
The total marketed valpe of all
kinds of fish, etc., taken by Canadian fishermen from the sea and Inland lakes and rivers during the
year ended March 31, 1914, amount.-,
ed  to  $33,207,748.
This value falls short of that for
the preceding year by $181,716.
This is accounted for foy the sockeye
salmon run in Northern British Columbia being smaller than usual, and
the deciease in the value of halibut.
Of this total value the sea fisheries contributed $29,472,811, while
the inland fisheries contributed $3,-
734,937.
The value of the fish catch by
provinces was as follows:
British Columbia, $13,893,980;
Nova Scotia, $8,297,626; New
Brunswick, $4,308,707; Ontario, $2,-

SPLENDID FOR  PLUMBERS
The sale of Product No. 99 is strictly
confined to the high-class supply
bouses. Its cost of manufacture is
therefore not affected by Dept. or
"price cutting store" influence' that
30 often drives manufacturers to the
use of inferior chemicals and processes. Nor is the dealer allowed to. \
reduce tbe retail price under penalty
of   having    his   supply   terminated.
A POWERFUL SOLVENT FOR
CLOGGED UP DRAIN PIPES
"99" destroys accumulations if lint,   paper,   cloths,   hair,   slime,
grease, vegetables, soup, fruit and many others.   It Is harmless to
finest plumbing.
DON'T ARGUE DON'T   PUT   OFF TEST    IT
This preparation lias been so generally successful in clearing
drains that it is bought over and over again oy those who have
tried it, but inasmuch as no on can know the actual condition existing within a pipe, it Is absoiitely impossible for tlie manufacturer or the dealer to guarantee He result.
