MIEDTS JHISSION
To Japan Results in Amicable
Settlement of Undesirable Immigration.
Mikado's   Government    Pledged
Take Measures to Retrict Immigration to Canada.
to
Last week the Hon. Mr. Lemieux delivered to the Dominion Parliament the
report of his mission to Japan in connec
tion with Japanese immigration to Canada, and shows that he was successful
in coming to an agreement with Tokyo
authorities to have this immigration curtailed to meet the wishes of Canada.
Mr. Lemieux said in part: "In dealing
with such a delicate problem, I am not at
liberty to divulge confidences and statements of a confidential nature." He
then read the written assurance from
Count Hayashi, Minister of Foreign Affairs, as follows, under date of Tokyo,
December 23, 1907:
"In reply to your note of even  date, I
have the honor  to   state   that, although
the existing treaty between Japan   and
Canada absolutely guarantees to Japanese subjects full liberty to  enter, travel,
and reside in any part of  the   Dominion
of Canada, yet it is not the intention  of
the Japanese Government to insist upon
the complete enjoyment of the rights and
privileges guaranteed   by these   stipulations, when that would involve disregard
of special conditions which   may-prevail
in Canada from time to time.   Acting in
this spirit and having regard to   circum
stances of recent  occurrence   in   British
Columbia, the Imperial Government has
decided to take efficient measures to   restrict immigration to  Canada.    In carrying out this purpose, the  Imperial   Government,   in   pursuance   of  the   policy
above stated, will give careful consideration to local   conditions   prevailing   in
Canada, with a view to meeting the desires of the Government of the Dominion
as far as is combatible with the spirit   of
fitl? treaty and' the  State.    Although, as
stated in a note   under   my reply, it was
not possible for me to   acquiesce   in  all
of the proposals made by you in behalf of
■the Canadian Government,   I  trust   you
will find   in  the statement herein made
proof of the earnest desire of the  Imperial Govern tnentxto  promote,   by   every
means within   theirisspower, the   growth
and stability of the cordial and mutually
beneficial relations which   have   existed
between our countrie?.   I venture to believe, also, that this   desirable result will
be found   to   have  been materially advanced by the   full   exc'iange   of views
which has taken place between us, and it
gives me special pleasure to ocknowledge
the obligations under which I have been
placed by your frank and considerate explanation regarding the attitude and
wishes of your Government."
"In this letter,"  said   Mr. Lemieux,
'the Minister of  Foreign   Affairs   gives
Canada the official assurance that the Imperial Government has decided to take
efficient means to restrict emigration from.
Japan.   It will be asked at   once, what
are those efficient means and where is the
guarantee of that restriction?  My answer
is that during the course of  our   conferences, a series of most stringent resolutions,  accompanied   by instructions   addressed to local governors and to the consuls in Canada were adopted.    I can  assure the House that the British Ambassador and myself are   satisfied that   these
regulations were sufficient for   our   purpose, and tjiat they will be honestly en
forced by the Foreign  Office   at   Tokyo.
There is, however, one feature  of these
regulations which   I   am   authorized   to
make public.    That is that bringing laborers under contract has been stopped."
Leading English papeis comment most
favorably on the result of Mr. Lemieux's
mission and compliment   him   and   the
Dominion Government on their diplomacy in settling so amicably an exceedingly delicate question.
PRINCETON  VISITED
By Superintendent of Presbyterian Missions in British Columbia.
dence that the dog, which was a large
and powerful one, had not succumbed
without a fierce struggle, the cougar's
legs were badly bitten and scarred up.
Pleased with Conditions Here—Pastor's Stipend will be Increased to
$950 Per Year.
PLACING THE BLAME.
Mackenzie King's report of his findings in the Japanese immigration inquiry
was pretented to Parliament last week,
and establishes the fact that the Japanese Government was acting in good faith
and that the Nippon Supply Co., backed
by the C P.R. and other Canadian interests, were responsible for the departure
from the regulations in force up to April
last.
BOUNTY ON PANTHERS RAISED.
The Provincial Government has increased the bounty on panthers from $7.50
to $15. The skins generally are worth
from #3 to $5 and with the bounty huat-
ing them should be profitable. This action has been taken by the authorities
on strong representations made to them
bv the sporting interests throughout the
country asking that some such action be
taken, owing especially to the fact that
young deer and young grouse have suffered severely from the depredations of
these animals.
GRANBY ALONE OPERATES.
Reports from Phoenix state the Gran
by still figures as the only mines shipping
and having the only smelter in operation
in the Boundary district. Some little delay has been experienced in getting the
entire Dattery of eight furnaces in opera
tion at the smelter, and when they are
all blown in it will give a normal output
of 3,000 tons daily shipped  and smelted.
A meeting of the board of managers of
the church in Princeton under the jurisdiction of the Home Missions of the
Piesbyterian Church, was held last Saturday evening, W. C. McDougall in the
chair, when considerable business effecting the church was disposed of. A resolution was passed unanimously asking
the Home Mission "Board to have this
mission placed on the augmented list,
which will enable the people to choose
their own pastor, besides entitling this
mission to the maximum amount of $350
granted by the Mission Board. This
with what is raised here and in Hedley,
the latter place being included in this
field, would bring the pastor's stipend up
to $950. Hedley will have to concur in
this action before it is finally settled, and
it is expected they will do so at once.
A committee composed- of Gordon
Murdoch and W. C. McDougall was appointed to wait on Mr. Waterman, resident townsite agent, with a view to securing a suitable site on which to erect a
church and manse.
Mr. Wilson, superintendent of Presbyterian missions in British Columbia, who
arrived in town during the afternoon in
connection with his duties, was present
and addressed the meeting. This was
Mr. Wilson's first visit to this field since
his appointment, and he expressed surprise and satisfaction at the way the people of Princeton had come to the financial assistance of the church, for which
credit was due pastor and managers.
The Rev. Mr. Wilson conducted divine
services on Sunday morning at 11 a. m.,
dealing in an interesting and instructive
manner regarding mission work in British Columbia. He left in the afternoon
with Rev. Mr. Conn for Hedley where
services were held in the evening. On
Monday Mr. Wilson visited the Nickel
Plate mine and left the next day for the
Okanagan.
PRINCETON NOT SO BADLY OFF.
Bert Irwin returned to Princeton yesterday from a trip to the Boundary, going
as far as Greenwood, and reports business
dull all along the line. He reports the
grading on the V.,V. & E. between Kere-
meos and Hedley progressing favorably
considering the number of men employed. Jack Budd is working on his contract at Brushy Bottom with great energy
aud he says it won't be his fault if the
rails are not stretched to Princeton early
in the fall. Mr. Irwin says there are'
worse place's than Princeton just now •
and" firmly believes there will be quite a
stir in this direction the coming summer.
He leaves on a trip to Nicola today.
Frank Bailey is busily engaged opening up a coal showing on his property on
the Tulameen river near town.
KILLED BY A COUGAR.
On Saturday last a dog belonging to
Walter Jamison met its death in a mixup
with a cougar at Five-Mile, which is
noted as a lurking place for these midnight prowlers. Walter found the dog
dead and partly devoured, and suspecting
a cougar to be perpetrator of the deed he
sprinkled the carcass with poison, with
the result that next morning he found
the dead body of the   cougar.   As   evi-
MORE PAY FOR M. P. P.'s
It is more than likely that the Provincial Legislature will increase the sessional
indemnities of ministers and members at
the present session. While" the exact increased is not announced it is understood
that the members will hereafter receive
$1200 instead of' $800, while the salaries
of ministers will be increased from #4,000
to $6,000.   	
BY THE HUNDRED THOUSANDS.
The greatest herd of caribou ever reported in the Yukon js now moving
southward across the head of Sixty-mile
rtver, a hundred miles west of Dawson.
Reports say the herd has been crossing
there for nearly a hundred days and it is
estimated that 100,000 caribou have already crossed, with no end of the- mammoth procession in sight.
A MODEL CITY.
It is the intention of the Grand Trunk
Pacific to make a model city of Prince
Rupert, the Pacific coast terminus of the
great transcontinental road now being
built and with this end in view two Boston landscape architects are on the way
to the site of the new place.
MINING STAMPEDE.
Hazel ton reports a stampede to the
new gold strike at the confluence of the
Ingenia and Finlay rivers, almost mid
way between the Canadian Rockies and
the Cassiar mounts. It is reported that
prospects are of the best, samples of the
gold brought to Hazelton being extremely coarse, and all the old-timers in
that district are preparing to make a
rush to the new fields.
Wednesday next, Feb. 5th, the fire
lads of Princeton will hold their annual
ball and everything is working smoothly
to make it the best ever. If you haven't
bought, your ticket yet you had better do
so at once..

SAND WANTED.
The Columbia Steel Works of Portland
has offered a prize of $100 to the discoverer of a deposit of white silica sond and
agrees to take 100 tons of the sand each
month at $6 per ton. Silica sand is necessary in the manufacture of steel. It is at
present a crying need in the steel industry on the Pacific coast. The steel working plants of Portland are importing
their supply from Minnesota at heavy expense for transportation. The needed
sind is usually of a color almost clear
white. The exact wording of the Columbia Steel Works' offer is as follows: We
take 100 tons each month of silica sand.
9S pure silica and free from iron oxides,
delivered at Portland at not to exceed $6
per ton, and we will pay $100 in cash to
the discoverer.
The demand for silica sand is wide and
very heavy. It embraces every iron-
working industry on the Pacific coast,
and is constantly growing greater.
The Metal Market.
A review cf the metal market of 1907,
says the Mining Science, shows some interesting features. It appears that the
slump did not affect all the metals to the
same degree. Silver for instance lost
only 25.7 per cenf. of its high value; copper on the other hand slumped off 52 per
cent. Tin, lead and spelter each lost
from 40 per cent, to 41 per cent. Why
silver should have shown such great
strength is hard to understand. There
has yet been no currency legislation lhat
would materially affect the price, so its
strength must come from a very steady
demand.from the arts which just about
keeps pare with the supplv. The variations in copper is easily understood. An
unusual temporary demand, together
po sibly with some market manipulation,
put the price exceptionally high; then,
when the demand broke, the price fell
exceptionally low, following the oft-
quoted habit of the pendulum. It is
pleasing to note that all metal prices are
nowon the upgrade.
An ingenious New Englander claims to
have perfected a process for the utilization of sage-brush in the making of
building material.
The ice harvest is now in full swing,
the various merchants laying in their
season's supply.
A committee meeting of the Fire Brigade will be held at Secretary Cowan's

will be received from the various dance
committees.

The Divining Bod Exposed.
In experiments with a diving rod as
used for discovering underground sup-
lies, says the Scientific American, one of
the geologists of the United States geological survey found that points it turned
downward independently of his will, but
more complete tests showed that the
down turning resulted from slight and—
until watched for—unconscious changes
in the inclination of his body, the effects
of which were communicated through
the arms and wrists to the rod. No
movement of the rod from causes outside
the body could be detected, and it soon
became obvious that the view held by
other men of science is correct—that the
operation of ihe "diving rod" is generally due to unconscious movements of the
body or of the muscles of the hand. The
experiments made to show that these •
movements happen most frequently at
places where the operator's experience
has led him to believe that water may be
found.
The uselessness of the diving rod is indicated by the facts that the rod may be
worked at will by the operator, that he
fails to detect strong currents of water
running in tunnels and other channels
that afford no surface indications of water, and that his locations in limestone regions where water flows in well defined
channels are rarely more successful than
those dependent on mere guesses. In
fact, its operators are successful only in
regions in which ground water occurs in
a definite sheet in porous material, or in
more or less clayey deposits, such as the
pebbly claiy or soil, in which, although
a few failures occur, wells would get
water anywhere.
Ground water occurs under certain
definite conditions, and as in humid regions a stream may be predicted where-
ever a valley is known, so one familiar
with rocks and ground water conditions
may predict places where ground water
can be found. No appliance, either electrical or mechanical, has yet been successfully used for detecting water in
places where plain common sense or
mere guessing would not have shown its
presence }ust as well. The only advantage of employing a "water witch," as
the operator of the divining rod is sometimes called, is that skilled services are
obtained, most men so employed being
keener and better observers of the occurrence and movements of ground water
the average person..-,
