CANNERIES  ARE  GETTING
READY FOR THE SEASON
This Year the Tin Is Arriving by the
G. T. P. Instead of by
Boat.
The canneries on the Skeena are
getting ready for the coming season.
Tin for the cans Is now being received at these fishing points in preparation for activity in a few weeks
now.
This season the tin, which formerly all came in by boat from the
south, is being brought to the canneries over the G. T. P. by the rail
route. Several carloads have already
arrived preparatory to opening up
the season.

Other Nations Are   Indignant at the
Proposed Move by thc
Kaiser.
London, Feb. 6.-—Indignation is
expressed by the French, Swedish,
and Italian press at the German
admiralty's announcement of the
proposed submarine blockade of merchant ships and its accompanying
danger to neutral shipping.
The "paper blockade" is received
with ridicule in England.
The report that the completion of
the Canadian Northern Railway tunnel under Mount Royal may be delayed, is denied by officials of the
company, who quote the following
statement from Sir Donald Mann,
vice-preident:
"The tunnel will be extended with
its full double track equipment
through Mount Royal to Dorchester
Street by the end of April next at
the present rate of progress, and it
is our expectation to have the Montreal  station   completed    this   sum-

LOCAL COMPANY
CARRIES OFF HONORS
THE  SHOWING   MADE  BY    IT   AT
VICTORIA   IS    EXCELLENT
ONE.
Major-General  Hughes Paid Compliment to   tlie   Appearance   of
Prince Rupert's Force.
NO DOUBT AS TO IMPORTANCE OF
THIS CITY AS A COMMERCIAL CENTRE
The  Present Depression Which Prevails Throughout The  Country  Will
Soon Be Forgotten In The Advances That Will Be Made When Prince
Rupert Wakens Up To Her Real Development—-Unbiased Opinions By
Outsiders Indicate That There Is Every Confidence With Regard To
This City
That Prince Rupert's best days are
yet to come is the freely expressed
opinion of those who have taken the
trouble to look over the situation
here. The present depression which
extends over the whole oountry cannot be taken as indicative of any
permanent set-back to this place.
With the revival in a commercial
way, and there are not wanting evidences that this may soon follow,
Prince Rupert will come into its own
as It has never before done.
Speaking to an outsider who has
spent several weeks   in Prince   Ru
pert studying the situation from the
standpoint of an investor, The
Journal was given some very encouraging views with respect to.the
future of the city. He pointed out
that among ail  the places   he   had
visited  Prince Rupert  residents had lines of communication and certainly
the least cause to worry. Prince Rupert was destined to be in

Eastern Hockey Matches Yesterday
The result of the Eastern hockey matches Saturday were as follows:
Wanderers, 8; Ottawa, 1.
Canadiens, 4; Toronto, 3.
Quebec,  4;   Shamrocks,  3.
Trade should follow, and with the
many advantages possessed by the
city in various lines there should be
a very rapid opening up of a good
prosperous city here.
His advice, he said, to men with
money would be to buy in Prince
Ruperl. now before Ihe next wave of
prosperity came. He could see nothing to hold the place back and everything to push It to the front.
W. Denning, who has just returned from the south, visited the
camp at the Willows in Victoria during his trip south.     He   was   there
a.
when the orders came to be prepared for leaving at any moment. This
news was received with great rejoicing by the members of the company
from Prince Rupert. Kits were
thrown in the air and general jubilation reigned for some time."
He says that the local company is
a most excellent body. They have
got their drill down excellently aud
the physique of the men makes the
body a very striking one.
When Major-General Hughes,
Minister of Militia, inspected the
troops at Victoria, he sought out the
Prince Rupert companv [or special
praise, says Mr. Denning. They are,
he says, easily the best unit in camp.
A few days ago a sham, battle was
held in which the water reservoir in
the city was made a point of attack.
A platoon under Sergt. James Melville, of this city, who is p.'ovlna;
himself an excellent soldier, really
captured the reservoir and from a
tactician standpoint blew it up. The
Prince Runect soldiers in the manoeuvres, it is said, covered themselves with all kinds of glory.
Col. Peck, the commanding officer of the local company, Is hel-l in
very high esteem by all the men of
his command, says Mr. Denning, and
is also regarded among the officers
as one of the most efficient In tlie
camp.

THE FISHING BUSINESS.
Prince Rupert is steadily drawing
to itself the main share of the halibut trade. This seems likely to continue, but at the same time citizens
should noi neglect to use every endeavor to haslen the bringing of it to
the city. Independent lishing boats
are coming here and making this
their home port. The big companies
with established lines of business
elsewhere are slower to do this, as
can bo expected, but they must
eventually come here.
RULING INDIAN PRINCES
WITH   BRITISH  ARMY
Five    L.
yal    Hindus    Aiding
Britain—All  Noted
Fighters.
Great
No less than live ruling Indian
princes are at the present tire in
active service \vith the British army,
all of whom belong to the Rajput
race, famous as the great fighting
land owning and ruling caste of India, and from which a large proportion of tiie recruits for the Indian
army of today are drawn. Four of
these, the Maharajahs of Bikaner,
Kishangarb, Jodhpur, and Sir Per-
tab Singh, are with the Indian expeditionary forces in France. The fifth,
the adopted son and successor of Sir
Penab Singh as ruler of Idar, is
serving in Egypt. Col. Sir Ganga
Singh, Bahadur of Bikaner, has served outside his own country in command of his renowned camel corps
on many previous occasions and was
recently gratified to receive from
Gen. Sir J, (i. .Maxwell a message appreciative of tho signal service the
camel corps lias already rendered in
Egypt.
In a recent interview given in
London during Christmas leave, to a
Times reporter, the Maharjah, who
is an extra A.D.C. to Sir John
French, expressed on behalf of the
ruling princes of India their keen
sense of the duty which lies upon
them to assist their king-emperor
with every means at their disposal,
and their recognition of the absolute
nei esalty for tho British participation   in   the   war   and   of   the   justice
Of    the    British    ease.     They    were,    Il
said, delighted with the manner In
which their efforts had been received
by the British people. The loyalty of
the Indian people, increased by the
wise and sympathetic policy of Lord
Hardinge, the viceroy, was such that
he had no doubt that a large proportion of the army could safely be
withdrawn from India. He paid
high tribute to the services of the
Aga Khan in maintaining the loyalty of the Indian nioslenis in face of
what he described as "Turkey's suicidal action.''
Referring to his experiences in
China fourteen years ago during tlie
Boxer outbreaks, the Maharjah said
that he was then pained and astonished by the ruthless methods of the
Germans. During tbe time he had
been In France he had seen heartrending evidence of equally terrible
cruelty on their part, authenticated
accounts of whicli had stimulated
lhe desire of the Indian population
for tlie victory of the Allies. Tho Maharajah also gave high praise to the
courage and cheerfulness of the British and Indian troops amid the discomforts of the trenches, often knee
deep in water. These were especially
trying to soldiers accustomed to operations in mountainous regions, and
he was proud of the hearty admiration which had been expressed on all
sides for the Intrepidity and resourcefulness of his fellow-countrymen under such adverse  conditions.

Purchase by the German imperia
family of large blocks of New York
State bonds to preserve part of the
Hohenzollern fortune in event of a
German disaster, is announced by
the London Daily Express.
In  a  telegram from  its New  York
orrespondent  the  Express  says:
"Information reaches me from a
senii-ollicial source that the Hohen-
ollern family have made heavy purchases of New York State bonds, issued last year for use of the Kaiser
or his relatives if they are compelled
to leave  Germany.
"These bonds are for $51,000,000,
aud cover canal and highway improvements. They bear 4 1-2 per
cent. Interest. The sale of the bonds
was conducted by the state on the
auction principle on January 21,
1914, A syndicate formed by Kuhn
Loeb & Company and Win. A. Reid
& Company secured the entire issue, offering 106.75 for each hundred dollar bond and outbidding 495
competitors.
"Since then, my informant understands, large blocks of these bonds
of unknown amounts have been
transferred to tlle llohenzollerns. It
is not known whether the transfer
was made in reality on behalf
the llohenzollerns, who realized war
was inevitable, and he thus prepared
against personal financial disaster in
advance. It Is a fact, however, that
great surprise was expressed in Wall
Street at the time when it was
known the successful bid was so
high. The inference was that a client
already had been found prepared to
lake the bonds off the syndicate's
hands at a profit.
'The laet that the transfer to the
llohenziillerus could he made a matter of private bookkeeping has required no large open market purchases, and thus no attention hai
been called to the Imperial Investment."

France and Belgium are far better
known throughout Great Britain and
to the world at large by tlieir nicknames than by their official titles,
says the New York Times. Their of-
I flcial titles In many instances, indeed, would convey nothing to the
average person.
Many people in many countries,
for Instance, linve heard of the
Black Watch; compiirtively few have
heard of lhe Forty-second Highlanders; yet the names are of the same
regiment. This famed body, the oldest of all Highland regiments, gets
its nickname from its tartan. When
the regiment was first formed it was
used chiefly to suppress sedition in
Scotland, to enforce the disarming
act, and to disperse unauthorized assemblies. A special tartan from
which all bright colors were eliminated was designed for regimental
use, and this fact, together with the
polico nature of the duties of early
days, led to the name Black Watch.
On many fields, in many parts of tbe
world, have the soldiers of the Black
Watch upheld the glory of this great
regiment.
How Scuts Greys Got tlie Name.
The Scots Greys, as famous in the
annals of cavalry as is the Black
Watch In Infantry records, began
their career as the Royal North British Dragoons. In 1742 the regiment
was landed In the Low Countries. On
their disembarkation, the Stadthold-
er, seeing that they were without
mounts, ordered his own guards to
turn over tlieir grey chargers to the
Scotchmen. And the Scots Greys,
with grey mounts, tkey have since
been, although they held the Official
name of the Royal North British
Dragoons down to the time of the
Crimean war.
The Coldstream Guards, who also
have won laurels on scores of battlefields, get their name from Coldstream, in Berwickshire. In 1600
Gen. Monk marched to London to
aid In securing a free parliament and
the restoration of the Stuarts, bringing with him his own regiment of
infantry from Coldstream. Tlie regimental legend lias it that when the
troops met Charles at Bllickheath
the Monk regiment kept some of the
disaffected soldiers of other units
from mutiny, and the King on learning whence the regiment had come,
addressed them as "My Coldstream
Guards." The name stuck.
Balaclava's "Thin  Red  Line."
"The Thin Red Line of England"
has long lived in song and story, the|enth Foot, the Duke of Cambridge's
name being applied generally to
British field forces. It is declared by
experts, however, that the name
properly belongs to the Argyll and
Sutherland Highlanders, in commemoration of their remarkable repulse
of the flower of the Russian cavalry
at Balaclava. Volley after volley of
rifle fire was poured by the slender
line of scarlet coats into the masses
of charging Russian horsemen, unti
finally the attack was abandoned despite the comparatively slight numerical strength of the British.
The "Fighting Fifteenth" are the
Fifteenth King's Hussars. They won
their title in 1794 in Flanders
against the French revolutionary
troops, They were serving with the
Austrians. and in operations near
l.andrecies they were ordered to
rescue the Emperor of Austria who
had been cut off from the main
army. Two squadrons ot the Fifteenth, with a few Austrian hussars, the whole body not numbering
more than 300 men, found themselves, through a mistake, facing an
entire French army corps. They al
tacked part of the corps so fiercely
that the French thought themselves
opposed by a great force. The Hussars rode through the outposts,
charged the artillery, killed 1,200
men, and took three guns. The Em
peror was rescued. He later decorated  the officers of the regiment.
"Die Haul, My Men, Die Hard."
The "Die-Hards" are the Fiftysev
Own,  Middlesex  Regiment.  At Albp-
era  in   1811   the  regiment  found  itself pressed  by  a great  force.   "Die
hard, my men, die hard!" was   the
cry   of  Col.   Inglis    to    his    troops.
Backs to a wall, the soldiers did tiie
hard. There were 140 survivors rat
of 570 who began the fight, the dea
including     Inglis.       At     Inkerman
where the regiment was almost '.vip
ed out, Capt. Stanley raised the cry
'Die-Hards,     remember     Albuera!
And the regiment again mado   gen
its name.
The Connaugbt Rangers wet*
originaly called the "Devil's Ovn"
because of their rascality, but tbei
superb fighting In the Peninsull
war changed the term from one o
reproach to one of honor. At Fnente
d'Onoro and at Badajts they fough
ith amazing fury.
The everyday goat is responsible
or tlle nickname of the Royal Welsh
Fusiliers—the "Nanny Goats." A
goat Is the regimental mascot and is
led at the head of the column. On
St. David's Day in the officers' mess
the goal, escorted by drums and
fifes, is marched around the table.

Tiie  Defeat  of Turkey in   the
Would   Ensure This
Change.
Wn
A new element of supreme im
portance has just been injected into
Turkey's war against the Allies by
the sudden conviction in the Turkish mind of Britain's intention to
wrest from Constantinople the Caliphate of the Mohammedan religion
and transfer it under British protection to Cairo.
Whether such an intention actml-
ly exists no one but the Turks presume to say. But that at least is the
interpretation which has been placed
in Constantinople upon Britain's protectorate over Egypt and especially
upon its elevation of the title of the
new sovereign from that of Khedive
to Sultan.
While the most is being made by
the Young Turks of this alleged intention on the part of Britain for the
purpose of stirring up war hatred
against the latter, the serious aspect
of the whole thing Is the admission
by the more sober-minded Turks
that whether Britain is really planning on such a move or not, there
can bo no question but the loss of
the present war by Turkey will Inevitably entail with it the loss of the
Caliphate. Thai Cairo would Ihen
become the logical seat is also regarded as certain.
With tho loss of all ils African
possessions and with the loss or all
Its territory In Europe save tbe little
itself concentrating all its hatred and
all its war spirit and energy against
the  latter.
Although the Young Turks are
making the most of this alleged intention on the part of Britain to
wrest from Constantinople the glories of the Caliphate, unfortunately
for them, all of the elements or the
situation are admittedly not in their
favor. To begin with, the entire Mohammedan world has not always
taken too kindly to the claims of the
Caliphate of Constantinople as being
tlie rightful successor of the supreme
authority of that religion.
Especially has this been so of the
Arabian Mohammedans, who cannot
[•"orget that, for centuries the succession of the Caliphate was not only in
their hands, but it was actually located in Egypt, where In the event
of any future change, It would almost inevitably have to go. It is not
considered likely, therefore, that the
Young Turks, while finding in Britain's alleged intention fresh occasion for stirring up their own wrath,
will be any too successful in stirring
up tlie Unanimity of the entire Mohammedan world for the carrying
out of their religious war against
her.
In addition, it is not certain that
even the entire Turkish clement of
the Mohammedan religion would be
unfavorable to the change. Egypt,
it is admitted, is in reality the present centre of the Mohammedan
faith, the centre of the propaganda
and the one country whose material
basis and prosperity is such as to
insure for the Caliphate the dignity
and security that is fast slipping
from  it  at  Constantinople.

The one great University of Islam
is located in Egypt, and it is from
there and there alone in the thousands of "ulema" who pass out every year to carry the religion to all
parts of the world, that the propaganda of tlie faith has its origin. In
addition Egypt is declared to be the
one Mohammedan country that has
reached a degree of intellectual development that will permit the development of the religion along the
lines necessary to meet the changed
(onditions which have taken place
ln the world from the time when its
one means of propaganda and support was the armed hordes which
J swept before them the nations of the
earth.
No secret is made of just how
much a change would mean to Britain. The latter- has somewhere in
the vicinity of 80,000,000 Mohammedan subjects. Were thc Caliphate
under tier protection, her prestige
would unquestionably be assured.
Her two friends and allies, Russia
and France, have also within their
dominions another 120,000,000 Mohammedan subjects. Were Britain
in a position, through friendly relations with the Caliphate, to be abli
to  assure  to   them    the    peace   and

When a British soldier at the front
speaks of a comrade who has been
killed he says that he is "going
west," and the origin of the words
have provoked a controversy in the
London press. It seems likely that
the Idea conveyed is that very ancient one which associaqted the west
with tiie setting sun and nightfall,
and the east with the rising sun and
birth of day. A correspondent of the
London Times finds a reference in
the Odyssey, in which the Western
Ocean was regarded as the home ot
all the mysteries; and others have
pointed out that the idea was not
confined to the Greeks, but was entertained by the ancient Egyptians
the Babylonians and the Dayaks. In
Celtic folklore the idea is frequently
encountered, and for the vogue of
the phrase in the army one correspondent thinks that some unknown
Munsterman must be held responsible, for it would be a very natural
thing for him to say: "Is it Pat
Sullivan? Poor fellow; he's gone
wesht." The people of Munster
speak of even a lost shilling as having gone west. Food and drink similarly go west, as of a bottle of stout,
"Put it wesht and come aim wld ye."
In early English literature the
idea is referred to only once, so far
as has been discovered, and that is
in some West Midland verses written about the year 1400:
"Women and many a goodly wight,
As food and water have gone west."
One soldier who is home from the
front believes that the phrase as
used by the soldiers has no more antiquity than that of the song "Drake
Goes West," recently sung at a bivouac concert. Whatever the origin of
the phase, it is interesting, because
it shows that even soldiers who must
be inured to sights of the most
dreadful slaughter are not able to
shake themselves free from the general reluctance to speak of death and
the dead in direct terms. We prefer
to speak of the "deceased," the "departed," to say that a friend is "no
more," or to use the Spiritualists'
euphemism of "passing over." The
word "undertaker" is similar evidence of a habit of speaking indirectly of where death is concerned.
