SHIPMASTKRM  URGE
VOLUNTARY   PILOTAGE
Vancouver   .Shipmasters   Make   Several    Recommendations    Regarding   Amendments.
"We further recommend that compulsory pllotabe be abolished so far
as British Columbia is concerned, as
it is at variance with the law." The
above is one of the sentences contained in a report suggesting
amendments to the new Canada
Shipping Act, and presented to a
largely attended meeting of the
Vancouver Shipmasters' Association
and carried by them unanimously.
Captain Harvey Copp, the president,
was in the chair, and the report
was read by Captain James Stewart
on behalf of the committee, which
had gone thoroughly into the matter.
The recommendation with reference to compulsory pilotage urged
that this system was at variance
with law because It left the ship
immune from liability when damage
was done and when the court found
that the damage was solely due to
the pilot in charge, whose services
had been forced upon the owners
and who was not in the employ of
the owners. It was recommended
that the big fishing vessels of from
200 to 340 gross registered tonnage

The premier added that he could

Germans Repulsed
By British Forces With
Severe Losses
London, Jan. 26.—Au oflicial
statement made here says that yesterday in the neighborhood of La
Bassee the enemy delivered several
violent attacks against the first division. They were repulsed with severe
losses.

three hundred Germans were killed
and 55 prisoners were taken, including two officers. An attack on tbe
French lines was also repulsed.
At Glvenchy and Guinchy, near La
Bassee, the Germans delivered five
attacks on tlie British lint. After

were repulsed, leaving numerous
dead and  sixty  prisoners.

The smoker held last night in St.
Andrew's Hall in honor of H. S. Clements, M.P., was a grand success, It
was of a very informal nature but
showed that Conservatism in Prince
Rupert was never stronger than at
the present time. Mr. Clements was
the only speaker, an opportunity being afforded him to express his views
on the situation. In view of the fact
that there had   been rumors as   to
whether he would when an election
came round be a candidate for this

southern end, Mr. Clements took oc-

of nearly ten and a half millions,
making an excess of expenditure of
five and a half millions. In another
province the same state of affairs
would  be set forth to show a deficit
harbor and sink her. The Iroquois
presumably, would have to have a
compulsory pilot. Tbe Empress would
put the blame upon the Iroquois. The
matter would go Into the court and
of perhaps half a million on current] the  Empress   would    win,   but   the
account, with capital outlay of five
millions on new colonization roads
and on permanent buildings. British
Columbia charges all expenditure tc
current account, though, of course
payments for new hospitals, or provincial educational buildings, are not
expenditures of the same class as expenditure for maintenance and current services, says the News-Advertiser. But our system has a good deal
to recommend it. Highways, school
hulldings and hospitals, are not revenue-producing investments, and
such excess of expenditure goes like
the rest to increase the net debt. It
would have been well had the Dominion adopted at the beginning the
system of charging all expenditure
to one account, as they do in Great
Britain and British Columbia. Deficits up 'lo fifty million dollars
would have been the same as now.
We cannot in British Columbia repeat last year's excess of expenditure. One difference between the expenditures elsewhere called capital
and the current expenditure is the
possibility of cutting out the whole
or a large part of the extraordinary
outlay.
judge would decide that the pilot
aboard tbe Iroquois was responsible,
because tbe owner would argue that
he was compelled to carry the pilot
and the pilot was not his servant. It
was asserted by one shipmaster that
this was precisely what happened in
the case of the Olympic-Hawke collision, where the pilot was found,
solely to blame and the owners of
the ship were immune. If there was
n voluntary system of pilotage the
pilot became the servant of the owner of the vessel.

carrying crews of between 20 and
40 men, should come under tbe same
law as trading vessels, which bad to
make straight, courses and should
carry properly certificated men. It
was, tbe shipmasters felt, more Important that these vessels should
carry good navigators than that a
trader making straight courses
should.
Another     recommendation      was
that the definition of a lugboat
should read "a steamship ,or vessel

E. L. Pease, tbe vice-president am!
general manager of Ihe Royal Bank,
at the annual meeting of the directors, after drawing attention to different features of the statement,
dwelt al length on the condition of
affairs In Canada at the present lime
and the strides that the country had
made during the pest twelve
months. Me pointed out that in most
instances, such as the railway earnings, bank clearings, total exports,
total Imports, there had been very
large decreases, whereas in the live
previous years increases were the
rule. Increases were shown only In
the value of field crops, which showed an increase of ^86,000 000, and
public deposits, whicl; showed an increase of $6,800,000. Referring to
this condition, Mr. Pease pointed out
that the five previous years had been
ones of rapid and much artificial development attended, as always,, by
speculation, inflation and extravagance. It is providential that the inevitable reaction set in a considerable
time before the outbreak of hostilities. If the war had caught us in
the throes of the boom, it would
have been a sad day for Canada. As
a result of the drastic liquidation
which has taken place, a spirit of
caution and conservatism now prevails, and our economic condition is
infinitely sounder than it has been
for many years. Fortunately so, because we were confronted in August
last by an unprecedented situation,
being suddenly thrown upon our own
resources by the stoppage of the
flow of foreign capital. Until this
flow is resumed it is evident that we
must live within  ourselves.
The problem is, can we do so? I
think it possible. Some revision of
preconceived plans will be unavoidable. Our progress may be less rapid
and retrenchment will be necessary
but the manner in which the country has faced the situation during
the first five months of the war is
an alugury of the future. Imports in
this period decreased $82,247,000,
compared with the same months of
the previous year, but exports decreased only $27,847,000, leaving a
balance of $49,258,000 In our favor.
This achievement is remarkable, considering that our imports .have invariably exceeded our exports for
many years past, the adverse balance for the fiscal year 1910 being*
$71,002,000; for 1911, $161,745,-
000; for 1912, $213,732,000; for
1913, $292,932,000; and for the first
seven months of 1914 $96,218,000.

efforts have always been rendered

the characteristic dresses of the

over tlie Empire protest against tbe
innovation now being introduced the
kilt will be the subject of so much
ridicule that the soldiers will gladly
part with it for trews and the popularity of the Scottish regiments will
be a thing of thc past. In shorl, the
proposal is to substitute a drab cloth
kilt of Inferior materials and badly
made for the present warm and
comfortable garment. So scanty is
the new kilt that il will be no protection from chills. Poor Sandy who
wears neither drawers nor pants is to
have but a single ply of khaki to
cover  his  thighs!
Nor Is that the only objection. The
pleats will not He flat but sland out

the material is so inferior that It will
last no time. An anonymous writer
who I imagine Is Mr. Neil Munro
the well known Scottish author, declared thai if Scotsmen do not protest the Scottish soldier before the
end of the winter will be fighting in
the trenches with nothing more than
a loin cloth round his middle and

.Mr. Clements, before the meeting
closed, paid a compliment to the talent which had been shown. He was
glad to see a city hand making such
progress. He only wished be was in
a position to assist that body as he
I would like to do, knowing the diffi-
j cullies that beset bands. He, however, made a modest contribution to
'the band.
In addition to selections by the
band, members of the Welsh Choir
rendered selections of a high musical
order. Meth Davis, C. D. Jones, A. D.
Harris, W. V. Davis, and J. L. Evans,
members of this musical organization, were heard to advantage in
solos, duetts, trios, and quartettes
Mr. Davis acted as pianist during
the evening. In "Let Me Like a
Soldier Fall," C. D. Jones in splendid form took the note High C with
ease to the delight of the audience.
At the opening of the programme
the bagpipes were introduced to the
delight of ail lovers of that martial
music. Billy McGuire was heard in
character songs, while Billy Oram, a
comic reciter, was heard in selections. He showed ability in other
than comic numbers.
D. Scheineman on tlie violin was
given  a good reception.
The meeting closed with God Save
the King.

ESTABLISHING   FAIR
RATE FOR HOTEL MEALS
How .LP. in Olds Settled the Matter
When It Came Before
Him.
Says the Calgary Albertan: The
first try-out of the new "Dead-Beat"
act, passed at the last session of the
legislature, took place at Olds last
Wednesday. The proprietor of one
of the local hotels and a Calgary
man were at opposite ends of the
string and the Calgary man won
out, getting the decision from the
J.P. Four-bits was the amount of
money at issue, but both parties
thought the principle involved was
as high as the Rocky .Mountains. On
Tuesday George Coyne, of Calgary,
with a couple of friends, took dinner
at the Royal Hotel, Olds. The party
fared sumptuously and ate their
way through the menu all the way
down to toothpicks. It was when It
came to settling that a difference of
opinion arose. Landlord Jay Russell
of the Royal does not have a set of
platform scales in his dining room
but he estimated the cost of the
three feeds to be $2 in all.
Mr. Coyne disagreed and offered
$1.60, which figures ,,.;t at 50c per
head. The hotel man stood out for
the $2, and finally summoned the
constable, who impounded the baggage of bis guests as security for
the balance. The vehemence of the
controversy was the event of the day
in Olds. The J.P., however, threw
in his lot with the defendants and
dismissed the case. Mr. Coyne and
bis associates reclaimed their baggage and went on their way to Calgary rejoicing. The principle seems
to be established by law and practice that the price of a dinner in Olds
shall  be an  even  ."lie hereafter.
