Prince Rupert Fast
Becoming Emporium for
Fish Trade of Pacific
The port of Prince Rupert is fast
becoming the centre of the fishing
business ou the Pacific Coast. Local
residents do not realize the extent to
which the trend of busines is turning in favor of this city, but the fact
remains that shipments are going
out every day to various parts of
the world.
This week, as an instance, there
has been practically two trainloads
taken out, with further shipments
by express ln carload lots. Among
these shipments was a consignment
ef 190 cases making up two carloads,
which went out yesterday bound for
Liverpool, Eng. This shipment was
frozen salmon from Mill Bay Cold
Storage, operated by Henry Doyle.
Mr. Doyle is making his shipments
by way of Prince Rupert, but the
salmon consignment is somewhat
new, especially when forwarded to
England.
Early in tbe week a full tralnload
went out of frozen halibut and other
fish consigned to eastern points in
Canada and the United States.
These shipments were by refrlgera
tor cars over the G.T.P. The Cana
dian Fish & Cold Storage Company
supplied the greater part of the
shipments.
Yesterday there were four carloads sent forward by express re
frigerator cars, including the two
cars for Liverpool. Another fast
freight train of refrigerator cars
also was sent forward by the local
dealers over the G.T.P.
Prince  Rilpert is  coming into its
own rapidly as a fish emporium. The
summer should  see  very rapid   development along these lines.

During the month of January the
catches of fish have not been as
heavy as In some previous months
at this port. This has given the opportunity to local companies to get
part of the frozen fish sent forward.
The month, which started well In the
line of herring fishing, has fallen off
towards the •■close, and no herring
has been taken In commercial quantities in the harbor for some weeks.
The value of the catch from this
port during January represented a
value of about $44,390. There were
16,722 hundred weight of fish taken.
Of this quantity halibut was represented by 625,00;0 pounds, which, at
5 cents a pound, represented $31,-
250. In view of the fact that January is usually a rough month on the
banks this catch for the month is
creditable. .
Salmon, being practically all of the
spring variety, showed 24,000
pounds taken, which, at 8 cents a
pound, represented $1,920. Of other
varieties cod was represented by
10,000 pounds.
Herring showed 1,000,000 pounds,

been published in connection with
the organization of a local fish company under the heading, "Let Us
Help Ourselves," the following are
some of the Ideas I had in mind, believing that they are feasible when
worked out and discussed by practical fishermen and business men.
Organization.
In and around Prince Rupert
Harbor there are some (30) thirty
what you may term small independent fishing boats, with crews of from
three to eight or ten men, some of
them suitable, well equipped and
manned, and on the average making  good  money.   There   are  others

Board of Trade held Monday night
the retiring preldent, G. R. Naden,
presented a very full report relative
to the industrial life of the city and
district during the year. Included
were also Interesting statistics which
are given. The report was as follows:
Prince Rupert, B.C.,
January~22,~19T5.
To the Members of
The Prince Rupert Board of Trade,
Prince Rupert, B.C.:
Gentlemen,—As you, are all aware,
the year 1914 has witnessed the outbreak of the most terrible conflict
among the Powers of the world that
has ever happened in history. The
effect of this outbreak upon the financial markets of the world has
been unparalleled. It has resulted in
the almost entire cessation of capital
available for development and industrial work, and for this reason has
had the effect of causing a slackening up in the amount of development work which was under under
consideration and in process of construction in Northern British Columbia. However, it is a matter for congratulation on the part of the communities of Northern British Columbia, and especially that of Prince
Rupert, that notwithstanding tbe un-
i.sual conditions existing, the yearjflc)(
1914, on the who'e, has still witnesed North
a   steady progress on
road   to
wards  the  making of Prince Rupert
City of the Nortli.
From present indications, the year
1915 will witness a continuation of
these conditions, which will necessitate a readjustment on the part of
the community of former conditions,
and compel the public to devote their
efforts more along the line of local
development of the various natural
resources that lie at their door.
The most important question by
far now in front of the community
is that of the fishing industry. The
linking up of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway has inaugurated the
commencement of shipments over the
line of fish products to the Eastern
markets. These shipments are increasing every month, and united effort is urged on the part of the community to help place this industry on
a satisfactory basis.
it is with much pleasure that I
submit the following data and information in connection with the progress of Prince Rupert and Northern
British Columbia and of the work
performed by the Board of Trade
during the year 1914.
THE PUBLICITY BUREAU.
In    January   last   the     Publieit.*
iBureau was established on a working
basis, and a concrete plan started for
I the purpose of obtaining belter Pub-
l'or   Prince  Rupert   and    the

ing of communal benefit, and is con- the usual anict:.>.t of success as to
sequently supported by a general the publication of the same. Latter-
levy on the community, the work in iy the war has had the effect of
Prince Rupert has been borne by a crowding out this matter, but gener-
in
in need of financial assistance, aud
business management, even to get
them properly equipped to catch fish,
which, as every master fishermen can
tell you, is the- first principle to work
from. My opinion is that if a strong
local company was organized all of
these boats you would want, and
many others from Southern British
Columbia ports, would take stock
in such a company to the value of
their net interest in the boats and
equipment, as it could be easily
shown that such an arrangement
would be distinctly to their advantage, as well as to the advantage of
the company.
Larger boats of tbe size and capacity that would be decided on by
men of years of experience could
also be obtained on the same terms,
as many independent fishermen on
this coast of limited means who are
struggling along as best they can in
large as well as small boats, in some
cases In debt for a portion ot tbe
boat, would gladly welcome an opportunity of improving their chances
In coming to Prince Rupert and joining such a company.
The articles of organization and
charter would have to be worked out
by business men and fishermen on a
sound business basis and provision
made for a large directorate of the
best men obtainable who would become interested in such a company
and who are directly interested in
the city in other ways, together with
outside men who might be obtained
that would take an interest and'
!stock in such an organization.

ally speaking considerable interest
has been shown in the outside press
as to Prince Rupert and the North's
progress. This part of tbe Bureau's
work is a most important one, as
tlle value of publicity obtained by
well planned press matter is universally recognized, and In this particular line the Bureau has made an excellent showing.

Entertainment,
A series of luncheons have been
held throughout the year. They
have been an unqualified success in
keeping up local interest, and with
the valuable assistance of various
gentlemen who have addressed the
members at these luncheons on
topics of interest, have assisted materially in the work of keeping tlie
community posted with up-to-date
information as to the progress of
Prince Rupert and the North. These
luncheons have also been the means
of adding considerably to the
amount of publicity obtained, inasmuch as the speeches made have
been reported In full In the local
press. The thanks of the Board are
due these gentlemen and the press
who have so kindly assisted in making these genial gatherings the success they are.
A business men's excursion was
run in July under the auspices of ^red strangers andI other,

This excursion was attended by
about one hundred and Ill'ly members and guests, and it was Intended

LIBERALS AND   LIBERALS,
There are Liberals and Liberals
The editor of the.organ of that party
in this city seems to belong lar
to a class by himself, lie refers to
the Prime Rupert General Hospital
Association as Hie Prince Rupert
Conservative Hospital Association.
While the Association has always,
we are thankful to say, been of a
very conservative type, we presume
the News intends to refer to it politically. This is a dirty insinuation
intended to work mischief in the
running of the institution. We have
never known of politics entering into
the affairs of the institution and we
defy the News to show when it has
done so. D. G. Stewart, who has
just retired from the presidency,
has occupied that post ever ■ since
the institution was opened. He has
been cognizant of all that took
place, for he has taken a very deep
interest In all things connected with
it. We have never heard Mr. D. G.
Stewart, who is known to be a Liberal, raise any objection to anything I Storage Company
Electric power would
be used from the city likely in any
event and the plant could be l>uilt in
units and enlarged as necessary; or
possibly a cold storage company
could be formed that would erect a
storage here for the sole business of
selling cold storage and ice entirely
independent of the fish business,
with which an arrangement could be
made.
Markets.
On this important question 1 can
„e]v|see no reason why a local company
would not be just as well able to secure a market for its products as
anyone else. This would have to be
thoroughly gone into before definitely completing organization, so that
In case of surplus production at
times arrangements could be matte
with one of the large American
dealers to take care of same, as well
as all other questions under this
head.
The question of fishermen, suitable quarters for them, cheap rents
for their families and all such questions of the greatest import to the
success of a company, would have
to be worked out by an organizer of
experience and ability in handling
such problems.
In concluding, my humble opinion
is that the small independent fisherman, with his home and family,
is what we require, and if possible,
we as citizens should leave no stone
unturned to bring him here and
make conditions so that it is to his
interest and welfare to remain here.

SPLENDID FOR PLUMBERS
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 uro-
cesses. Nor is the dealer allowed to
reduce the retail price under penalty
of   having    his    supply    terminated.

CLOGGED UP DRAIN PIPES

like nature, are what we want; boats
coming to land fish, purchase supplies and bait will be a factor, but
the home companies are the ones to
encourage, build up and secure for
Prince Rupert; these are companies
that will keep our drydock employing men, our carpenters building
homes, our railways hauling fish,
our merchants and hotels doing business; the others will assist, but we
want them all and should show our
faith and confidence in our city and
this industry by doing something to
advance it ourselves.

granted by the Board has been generally appreciated.
Membership.
At the end of 1913 the membership of the Board of Trade was 77.
This membership has been increased
to 188 In 1914, of whom 111 are in
good standing as at December 81,
1914. This increase of practically
100 Is most gratifying and gives a
practical illustration cf the good
feet of the policy of conducting
up of the G.T.P. in Sep-
the linking

In reviewing the progress of this
industry during the year 1914 I,
first of all, wish to particularly draw
the attention of the Board to tbe excellent work done by tbe Special
Committee, consisting of .Messrs. G.
VV. Nickerson, W. B. Williams, and
F. Q, Dawson, which was appointed
by the Board to take up the ones-

In handing over the Publicity Department of the Board of Trade to
tbe new executive I feel that, with
(he foundation laid in 1914, the
work of the Bureau in ensuing years
will be the means of rendering valuable assistance to the community in
the matter of fostering the movement for a larger and more prosperous Prince Rupert.
Transportation.
On April 7, 1914, the final connection was made in the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, giving Prince
Rupert through connection with
Winnipeg and tho East, and (be first
standard train from the Enst arrived
In Prince Rupert on April II. Owing
to the outbreak of the war, the official opening of the line was postponed, but a regular standard train
schedule was established on the 2nd
September between Prince Rupert,
Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Fort William. Most of you arc familiar
with the extent of this gigantic undertaking, from which Prince Rupert
lias its Inception, but it is worth
while mentioning that to date 3,149
miles have been constructed Easl of]

steel rails, with no curves of a
sharper radius than 0 degrees, with a
ruling maximum grade of half of one
per cent., and that the cost of building the first 100 miles Enst from
Prince Rupert was $8,000,000, showing lhe gigantic nature of the project, and the engineering difficulties
overcome,
" At tiie present time b regular passenger service is maintained of .three
liains weekly, carrying mail, during
the summer months, and of Iwo
trains weekly during the winter
months, each way, with every prospect of augmentation during the
coming summer, There lias also
been a regular freight service niiiln-
t Ined between Prince Ruperl and
Eastern points,
Steamship communication lias
been maintained during the past year
between Prince Rupert, the South,
and adjacent points, by a service
as follows: The Canadian Pacific
Railway, with a service of three passenger boats and one freight steamer calling regularly; the Union
Steamship Company, two passenger
and two freight, boats plying between
Prince Rupert and points north and
South (way points not touched by
other direct service) ; the Pacific
Coast Steamship Company, two boats
making six trips a month; the Grand
Trunk Pacific Steamship Company,
summer months five steamers a
week, in winter months three boats.
A service has also been made by
this Company to the Queen Charlotte
Islands, which Is capable of considerable Improvement, as settlers on
these Islands are placed at a great
disadvantage in the marketing of
their produce "under the existing
transportation facilities.
Fisheries.
At the present time this industry
Is by for the most Important feature
of loi il development,    it   lias   par-
come i'-.'n prominence since
lent foundation for the united efforts
of the community of Prince Rupert
in pressing these changes which are,
going on at the present time. The!
thanks of not only the Board of
Trade but of the entire community
are due these gentlemen for the efficient manner in which they have
handled   this  question.
The position of Prince Rupert in
tlle competitive fields of this industry prior to the completion of the
railway was not as strong, as we
might have wished, but I am glad to
say that this weakness no longer
exists, and at the present time Prince
Rupert has become a recognized factor as port of entry and a shipping
port for the fish products of tbe
Northern Pacilic. You are all aware
of the serious view that is being
taken of our entry into this field by
Seattle and Ketchikan, who, up to
the present, have held the major
part of this business, and the concerted effort being made by these
cities to retain control of this Industry, and It will require earnest
work on the part of the whole community of Prince Rupert to protect
and assure Prince Rupert her share
of this profitable industry. I am
glad to note that at the present time
concerted effort is being put forward
by the entire community in an endeavor to influence the change in existing regulations, which are onerous
as far as Prince Rupert is concerned.
In September last the first regular
service was inaugurated of fish
shipments over the G.T.P. Railway,
and between September 9 and December 31 not less than 4,740,430
lbs. of fresh and frozen fish was
shipped to the Prairies, Eastern
Canada and (he Eastern cities of the
'United Stoics. Practically all the
larger towns in the East have drawn
upon Prince Rupert for part, of their
tisli supply, and where previously
Prince Rupert as a Ashing centre was
a matter of rumor only, she is now
taking the place rightfully hers, as
being the strategic point of tbe most
natural and quickest route to these'
markets,
At the iuVHeiii time the industry
locally is handicapped in several
ways. It is at a disadvantage as regards certain regulations in force.
which we hope will be changed in
the near future. The cost of ice.
bait and distillate is at present too
high, bul there is a promise of this
being rectified in the near future!
ami I hope to see arrangements effected whereby Prince Rupert Is
placed on. the same basis In these
matters as her Northern neighbor.
Ketchikan,
There were 42 canneries operated
lu the district duling the year 1914,
The Naas and Skeena rivers have
regularly each year contributed
largely to the salmon pack of British
Columbia and the figures of the total
pack for  1914 are Interesting:
Salmon Puck of Northern British
Columbia, 1111 I.
Total   	
Those   figures    show
over 1913 of $445,160.
During the year 1914 prices obtained for fresh fish at the wharf
Prince Rupert have been good, and
there has been no difficulty in disposing of all fish landed, as the demand  has   far  exceeded   the  supply.
There is great need of wharfage
accommodation for this industry in
the future, and it is to be hoped that
arrangements will eventually be
made for the localization of this
business by t
values in gold and silver. At 14 •£
cents per pound for copper the gross
production from this mine will
amount to $78,000,000, It Is probable that about 75 per cent, of the
gross value will be spent for labor
and supplies, and it is certain that
a large proportion of this amount
will find Its way to Prince Rupert.
In the Hazelton district . development work has proceeded steadily
and several of the mines in that district are beginning to show up very
favorably. Proved mines have been
made of several prospects and others are in a fair way to prove that
they are worthy of taking a Place j (irawn a
amongst the producing mines of|from the
93,840 j British   Columbia.
In other districts there has also
been a certain amount of work done.
Of these districts Portland Canal is
worthy of mention on account of the
tunnel driven by the Portland Canals
Tunnels, Ltd., of Victoria, which has
proceeded far enough to show that
the work and money spent on this
proposition has been justified. The
Omineca district owing to rumors of
a projected railway has had considerable attention paid to it, in connection   with   bydraulic  leases.
There are no new developments in
the several coal fields of Northern
British Columbia. Most of these
districts  will  take considerable time

Provincial.
There wire 441 pre-emptions recorded in 1914 as against 489 in
1913. This shows a decrease. There
were 54 land purchase applications
filed against 353 in 1913. There
were 213 mining claims recorded
in 1914; this is a slight increase
over 1913. There were six Crown
Grants issued for mineral claims; 94
coal licenses were taken out in 1914,
and Sun gun licenses.
These figures show a decrease
generally over 1913, but this Is
chiefly due lo the fact that the completion of the railroad lias with-

previous years filed on pre-emptions

in land applications. Mining and

well  maintained.
order to keep pace with the growing
demand  for  wharf accommodation.
Agriculture.
Northern British Columbia is gradually taking its place amongst the
recognized farming centres of British
Columbia. A steady progress towards settlement of the interior and
tbe islands adjacent to Prince Rupert is being made. The year 1914
has witnessed a better class of settler coming in to take up land, and
although development, owing to the
vastness of the district known as
.Northern British Columbia, is slow,
it is coming steadily. The Government (Provincial) has installed several experimental stations -at different points, and the results obtained
at these stations-are satisfactory in
every way. The outstanding difficul-j
ty agriculture has to contend with
is lack of transportation and markets. This is a condition that time
will ameliorate.
tation slate.
Considering financial conditions,
which are always a large factor in
governing development work in mining areas, Northern British Columbia from a mining point of view Is
showing a steady improvement in
her position, and it is a matter of
satisfaction to be able to say that
there is no doubt that eventually
Prince Rupert will become one of
the recognized mining centres of
British  Columbia,
The Lumber   Industry.
The state of this industry during
the year 1914 has been almost normal, but a decrease is shown In the
total cut. Conditions in the lumber
trade have as you know been almost
universally quiet throughout British
Columbia, hence Prince Rupert and
the adjacent districts have also witnessed a quiet period. At tho present time there are ten working
plants In operation in Northrn British
Columbia.    These   turn   out   about

In commenting on civic affairs a
brief summary of the chief features
of Prince Rupert development since
Incorporation will not be out of
place. Prince Rupert has live parks,
containing an aggregate of 90 acres.
Steady work has been maintained in
1914, In bringing part of these allotments for public recreation into
proper shape. It has a cemetery of
57 acres. Ten and one half miles of
plank roadways. Five miles of planked sidewalks; and three miles of
sewers. It owns such public utilities as electric lighting and power,
telephone, and water. The fire department is modern, well equipped,
centrally situated and efficiently
worked. The assessed value of real
property for 1914 was $20,959,020,
with $2,834,1(10 improvements, and
the rate of taxation was 13.975
gross. As the single tax plan is the
one that has been adopted by the
city, no charge is levied on Improve-
| ments. During the past year there
has been issued 124 building permits with a total valuation of $001,-
C75, showing a substantial increase
over 1913,
The year has witnessed the connecting up of the new water system. Prince Rupert has also contributed her quota of citizens for the
cause of the Empire. In November
last 120 men left (be city for lhe
purpose of joining the Second Can-
tingont of the Canadian Active Service  troops.

The Fair held under the auspices
of the Northern British Columbia
Agricultural and Industrial Association in the new exhibition building
which was completed this year was
a splendid success, and the exhibits
shown go far to prove that, the farming Industry of Northern British
Columbia is reaching a point, past
the experimental stage. The local
exhibits especially were of :i high
standard, and are a matter of satisfaction to the community or Prince
Rupert, as It goes to Bhow that
gardens within the city limits are
capable of growing sufficient produce
of nil descriptions. Bach year will
see an increase of space under cultivation, and it is lo ho hoped that
the supplies grown locally and In
the interior, will be sufficient to
meet the local demand, and thus
counteract the bad effects of produce having to be shipped in for
local consumption from the south.
Mining.
Steady progress in development
work has boon the feature of 1914,
although the existing crises have
considerably retarded further growth
in development. The outstanding
feature of the year bus been the
blowing in of the smelter at Anyox
and the consequent completion of
tbe development part of the work
undertaken by the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
Co., Ltd. This company expended
close upon $3,000,000 in purchasing
and developing its mine- al Hidden

Progress,    1914
In dealing with the progress of
development work during the year
1914, it is important to bear in
mind that while a great deal more
work was contemplated at the beginning of the year, the outbreak of
war and the general stringency resulting has bad the effect of curtailing the actual amount of work done
considerably, but even under these
conditions the data given below
makes an excellent showing.
Tho Dominion Government.
During the year 1914, the Dominion x Government has expended
the sum of $87,650 approx. on new
work in the Northern British Columbia District, of which amount
$63,500 was expended in Prince Rupert.

The Dominion   Telegraph  Service.
Telephone lines connecting New
Hazelton and Skeena Crossing and
one connecting the Montana   Devel-
shops, and other facilities, industrial
warehouse sites, and sites for oil
[tanks at Cow Bay. Mtes have been
! cleared for these facilities, and work
' is in progress at the present time. In
connection with this work there is
still 160,000 yards of rock to be removed. The site for the large steel
and terminal depot has been cleared
but this particular work has been
held up for the present owing to
present financial conditions. Independent of the permanent staff and
those employed, on the. Drydock the
company employs about 100  men.
The Drydock.
This large undertaking is nearing
completion, and it is expected that
it will be ready for business in June,
1915, and will be fully completed
by the end of 1915.
This Important work, which,
when completed, will have cost In
the neighborhood of $2,750,000, Is
one of Prince Rupert's greatest assets, and a few particulars are
worthy of mention. The work of
the Grand Trunk Pacific Drydock &
Ship Repair Company, the dock,. Is
virtually three docks in one. In con
junction with the machine and repair shops built, it can handle any
class of work, wood or steel, and
boilers and other machinery. It can
handle a ship having a displacement
of 20,000 tons and a length of 600
feet, drawing 30 feet of water. Sec
tions can be disconnected and economically dock smaller vessels. The
smaller units will lift 5,000 tons
with length of 165 feet. The larger
unit will lift 10,000 tons, with a
length of 270 feet. Two units can
be combined and lift 15,000 tons,
with a length of 435 feet. It can
handle three repair jobs at one time,
besides what can be repaired at the
wharf. It can supply fishing boats
with everything needed in the line of
painting, repairs, fuel, fresh water,
and even ice. It has derricks that
can lift out 60-ton boilers for repairs and replace them after passing
through the shops connected with
the dock. It can furnish power,
light, compresed air, wharf and storage space. The dock will draw four
feet complete. There will be 10%
feet freeboard, and each foot of each
section will lift 163 tons.
At the present time over 200 men
are employed on the construction
work with a payroll of $18,000 per
month   approximately.
With this large enterprise in running order, we may look for a good
addition to the payrolls of the city,
as well as to the extra amount of
money that will be expended by vessels using the dock for repairs, etc.,
in supplies, etc.
Work in the Interior.
The work of widening clay and
rock cuts, protecting the line from
slides, where required, strengthening fills against washouts, is proceeding.    About ,75 per cent, of the
SO chains, to point of commencement, containing 640 acres more or
less.

Conclusion.
In conclusion, I wish to point out
to the members of the Board that if
the Bureau of Information is to be
continued it will be necessary to devise some means of financing the
work, and I would suggest that it is
a matter for the consideration of not
only members of the Board but of
the community in general. In 1914
the work it has done justifies a continuance in 1915. The foundation
work done has been solid, and while
no extensive propaganda is suggested in these unsettled times, It is of
the utmost importance that the
result of the money already spent
should not be lost by tbe complete
stoppage' of the work, which has
done more In 1914 in fostering a
spirit of co-operation locally, of gel-
ting Prince Rupert her due share of
publicity, and In making the Board
of Trade of Prince Rupert the strong
and aggressive organization it Is at
the present time.
I wish to thank my fellow officers,
councillors, and members of the various committees for their co-operation during my term .of office, and
the members for the expression of
their confidence and the honor conferred upon me by my election to
the presidency of the Board of Trade
of Prince Rupert for the past year.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
President.
