on Sunday three hours ahead of
her expected arrival and anehaired
in the stream. The tide was low
and she couldn't deck.
The reason for this early arrival
was the meeting of the City oi
Seattle in MillbanV Sound, and
ii little brush.
The City of Seattle used to he a
good boat ill her elsSS, but sin- il
not fit company (or Canadian
boats now.
Coming into Millbank sound the
Beatrice was lolling along, killing
time, as it were, in order to arrive
lien- on a full tide and dock. Tin
Seattle came in -bdit and under

getting  busy, and the black curly
Hllloke issuing out of  the Canadian
funnel appeared to have imbibed
the Spirit of Sport. The Beatrice.
lilac all true sports, took no advantage of her lead. Let her rival
come up to dead abreast. Then
she tooted the whistle of derision
and pulled av ,v from her like a
hare from a turtle, Again she
would slow doiru, let her
lame rival catch up. and
again pull away from her. This
humiliating procedure was continued from 12 m. Sunday till 6 p.
in., when the Beatrice turned into the Seena. The Seattle had to
take her medicine like a nice little
boy, and the cheers of derision
from the passengers on the Canadian boat reached a climax when
the broom and the hunting were
hauled down by the crew.

It is not unlikely that the company may establish a station at
some point on Queen- Charlotte
islands, as at present that part of
the province has no means of telegraphic communication with the
outride world. At present, at all
events, it is not probable that the
company will establish stations on
the southern coasts, as it can utilize
the telegraph lines from Cnmox for
the collection and delivery of messages for its wireless system.

In reply to  numerous  inquiries
that We have received .ir to the
present position of the negotiations
between the provincial government and the (irand Trunk I'm i-
fic Railway company respecting
the lands in the [ndian reserve on
Digby island and in the vicinity,
says tin- News-Advertiser of the
6th, the situation may be briefly
stated to be as follows, according
to | statement made yesterday by
Hon. Mr. Tallow, tin- acting premier: Roth the federal government and the railway company recognize the revi rsionary right that
the province has to any lands
within   an   Indian  reserve,  when
they are abandoned by the Indians.
In the case of the lands n ferred to
the railway company has informed
the provincial government  that it
desires to secure part of the reserv
having an area of   between   13.00(1
and M.iiHO acres.    It has also intimated   that it is prepared to settli
with   the   Indian-   tin-   price   t!,:i;
they   shall   receive   for   tbe   abandonment of  that j urtion ill the reserve.    The company arks that the
provincial government will convej
any claim it has   to   the   lands   in
question to the company.    In   answer, the government  has  replied
thai   it will give careful considi ration to any offer that the company
may make, hut has Intimated that
it would not . 1 i-1:• ..-<■ nf tin se lamb

the present time  no  proposal   ha-

from the company in reply to the
former's communication  and   that
i- the present  position of the i 'go-
tiations.     There ir no trut h in the
statements that hai e appi a ed   on
several occasions recently in some
of the provincial newspapers—thai
the negotiations between   the  government and   the company  havi
been  conclutled and that the company has secured   these   land.-   on
terms similar to those  lor  which
the Kaien island lands   were   sold.
The government  considers  it  has
a duty to perform   in   seeing   that
the interests of  the  province are
protected by the terms on which it
disposes of any additional land- in
that vicinity.    In the sale  to  the
company   of   the   lands   on   Kaien
island the government  considered
that  by tin- location of the terminus there, the  value   of   the   other
crown lands in   the   neighborhood
would he enhanced  in   value,   and
therefore,   that it could well afford
to sell these lands   on   terms   very-
favorable to the purchaser.    It has
seen no reason   to  believe   that   it
did   not then act in the best inter
eats of the province, and tin- view-
it then took of the situation is still
held by it. and is that which is now-
following in  the  present  negotiations.     Realizing the interest that
many   people  have in the development   of   the northern part of   tin
province,     the    government   will
doubtless give the public information of the completion of any   further sale to the company.      Meanwhile it will be well  not to  place
any   reliance on unauthorized statements.
