that North Vancouver will bo
the terminus of the Pacific Groat
Eastern railway, and not Now-
port as rumored, was the declaration made by both Sir Richard
McBride and D'Arcy Tate at a
meeting held at Victoria between
the Cabinet and a delegation
from North Vancouver.
Introducing the deputation, P.
L. Carter-Cotton, M. P. P., said
that although the charter called
for a commencement on the work
on July 1, 1912, within ten miles
of the city of Vancouver, which
really meant North Vancouver,
construction had been begun at
Newport. This had given rise
to the rumor, and the reaj estate
dealers had carried on a campaign in which Newport was advertised as the terminus. This
had done harm to North Vancouver.
Premier McBride declared that
the government could not undertake to censor real estate advertisements or to be responsible
for them. He added: "The
terminus of the Pacific Great
Eastern railway is the city of
Vancouver, ar.d it will go there,
there is no doubt about that."
D'Arcv Tate also declared
that Vancouver would be the
terminus. 'That is our contract," he said, "and we are going to have the road constructed
in contract time from Vancouver
to Fort George."

"Dots competency count for nothing

be judged only by the character of our
work, and not by our looks?"
Mayor Gaynor of New York was recently asked these questions by a delegation of typewriters and stenographers who have a grievance. They complained that employers are rot inclined
to give work to girls who do not fill
their eye as to figure, face, color ef
hair or complexion. Mayor Gaynor
designated Mrs. Marion, his confidential stenographer, to hear the grievances of the young women.

therefor. The supply and demand
shows that the total production of farm
produce in B. C. was twenty and three-

fourteen and three-quarter millions.
The following five staple farm products,
fruit, cheese, poultry, eggs and meats,
shows a larger discrepancy, our production being only two and five-eighth
millions of a consumption of over seven
millions. In ether words we are still

A short time before the G.T« P. transcontinental is completed there will be a
great rush of people to Prince Rupert.
The opening up of so much arable land
in the north will cause a great influx ef
settlers as well as speculators. The
present boats will be too small to cope msi
with the business in a satisfactory
manner and some of the larger ferry

be switched to this trade and new

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 3)
domain Chief Cloud conducted the souls
of the wicked Indians, and there they
were prevented from hunting and fishing and otherwise enjoying themselves.
It was a most dismal region to live in,
as it was always dark, and all enjoyment for the poor souls that were condemned to live in his kingdom was at
an end. The storms were supposed to
prevent them from catching fish, and
the snow prevented them from hunting,
and thus they were in a perpetual state
of misery and trouble. The question
now to our minds naturally arises what
in the olden days made a good Indian,
and what constituted a bad one? From
what I have been able to ascertain, the
good Indians were those who-worshipped
the Great Chief through the minor
deities, and were observant of all the
required ritual as taught by the medicine men. - They were always punctual
in offering the aceustomed sacrifices to
the inferior gods in order to get their
advice and assistance, and consequently
were obedient to the commands and
slightest wishes of the great Sa-ag-gas
known to the whites as medicine men.
They were commanded to love their
friends and be kindly disposed towards
the poor. They had never to fight with
their friends and had always to attend
the great dance festivals and give liberty towardfi the feasts- The Sa-ag-ga
"was their supreme guide whilst they
were in this lower world and in this respect the medicine men usurped priestly functions and their mandates were
oftentimes greater than those of their
chiefs. For instance they were taught
that they must only to go war against a
foreign tribe at the command of their
Sa-ag-ga, and he would then assure
them of victory. If anyone be killed
by an accident or in actual warfare the
services of the Sa-ag-ga would gain him
an admittance into Sha-tle-ge, and for
this service the medicine man was accustomed to receive a bale of blankets
valued formerly at sixty dollars. Finally, all who were happy while on this
earth and did their duty according to
tbe ancient customs in vogue would be
admitted by the Great Chief into his
beautiful kingdom, where they would
continue to be happy until called upon
to revisit this earth as the soul of
some newly born infant. This is one of
the difficult points to decide, whether
the bouI returned to this earth from the
Great Chief's kingdom or from the domain of Chief Death. The old Haidas
were really undecided on this point.
