"It was iiot: ,known whether or not  the traps wqiild have been as successful as they have and it is only a  reasonable proposition that where  elio fish are, there the canneries  ���������������������������houlil  be. Mare  traps  wiLl  in all  probaq-ility be put in, and other canneries may go up. The'towing expenses alone of uie of the big firms  of packers have l.������*cu $125 per day to  bring (ish from the leaps, and this  would be obviated wher the cannery  near lo where tbe li.s-h are taken.  This would hardly mean, though,  thai .canneries would he moved from  Ihe Fraser river, as large numbers  of fish would cont niie to lie caught  Ihere. This year, however, U iwing  steamers have brought large quantities of salmon from Uie trans to Canneries on tbe river, wJvieh is an additional expense."  All the bfvats at the various canneries are bring ng in full loads of  fish, the run .continuing good.' Tlie  canneries are. working- full capacity,  and expect to do so for several days  yet.

Of  Hie 120,000 fish received by the Ain-  erieaii Fisheries on Friday about., ten  were humpbacks     and co-  Unfor'tiinately the absence of one rv  tw0 aldermen from the city tendered  it impossible for a city council me ;t-  ing( to "be held last'evening, and in  consequence several matters of importance have lo be laid over for a  week.  lt was the intention of the-Council to-appoint a man to the position  of pouiidkeepcr and gravedigger last  evening. This office was vacated recently .by JEli Nicholas and during  the week upplications ha\e heen  called, lt is understood that two  ijica- have'applied .for the-position.  Had there been a meeting the council would no doubt have awarded thc  contract for tjie painting-nf the exterior of the' city hall. While there  s no immediate hurry for this work,  it would Le as well to have it no-  erly completed before the damp season sets ��������� in. However, a delay oi a  week or two in the matter will make  iio difference.' v  V-. Another  question  that  would probably have been discussed by the council  hoard,  was     that, of the lighting  of the city..    '   The.  summer is now  well'advanced,'and. this is   a matter,  which should "  not be delayed. ' !-For  this reason     alone   t is to be regretted that     circumstances    rendered it  impossible    for sufficient aldermen to  form a quorum to put in an appearance    .last    evening..- 'Owing to'lhe  faet3'.that two oi the gentlemen ele:-  leihto      aldcriiianic    seats this year-  have left  Ladysmith,   the council can.  never be   certain of      a meeting and  in.the last four weeks only one meet-  ing.'has ibeen  held,  that of lats ^Ion-  Monday evening. It is, of course,  impossible for  some of  the aldermen  lo put   " in an      appearance at every  meeting,, and if     two of the remaining five are   unable to .attend, on the  same evening,   a meeting- cannot     beheld,  and   the transaction'of bfcsincss  has  to be postponed      for one week.  A 'large ��������� expense would attend an election,   or  no douM one would      l.e  held,   and. the     two vacant sevits be  filled;     If the council could see their  way .clear, to take ., such an action it  would- probably     do   away with the  annoying  necessity of having  to con.  tinually'-postpc-he-busiiic's's on account  of failure of    the requisite number of  aldermen to turn up at the meeting  New York,   Aug.  8.���������Through    the  arrest   of ,Cpat.

VANCOUVER'S  POPULATION  '  OVER  45,000.  Vancouver's   population,   at   aeon  cervative estimate,  is placed  at '15,-  000.     From  the  recent data  in  pps-.  session  of  the  Henderson   Directory  !  Company,   the  above   figure   is   considered a safe calculation of the number  of  people  in the city.  Mr.   .lames Henderson,   president of  the   directory company,   in  an  interview   recently,  stated  lhat,   the  city j  officials   weie   abundantly   justified in I  estimating the population of Vaneou  ver at 15,000.   He said  that  the progress  of the.city was. being steadily  maintained,  and   that  the .half-century    imirk  should   be  reached   before'  the.end  of the year.

IL,  Aug.   8.��������� Tlie  fleet,     bearing    the   plenipotentiaries  who   will   endeavor   to  bring      peace  between   Russia and   Japan,   arrived  here I at 0.80 this morning.   M. .Witte  arrived   by      train  last night.    The  streets   of the  city  are clrapud  with  flags   and   bunting.    Twelve   hundred  I loops  arrived   between  8.f0   and   TO  o'clock.   In,the harbor the  ships had1  been     dressed   for ,the occasion.   At  the  navy  yard   everything   was ready  for      the  conference.    The   arrangements are such . that the members 0f  the  peace commission   while  in    thc  navy     yard will .be watched closely  and   perfect   secrecy   is   assurred   for  the meetings.  At the Hotel Wentworlh M. Witte  got up early, beginning at oncei the  preparation of despatches to his government. To a representative of the  Associated Press he said that he is.  more than ever animated by the desire of doing all in his power to  conclude peace, but that as he had  often stated, all will depend upon  what the Japanese expect ,to obtain.  However, he will leave nothing nn-  attemptr-d to reach ih������ desired object, and iii case of failure, the  world will judee on whr.m the responsibility shall  rest.  According  to  a" Portsmouth     despatch to  the Times,   the.  facts   concerning     M.  Witle's   reported  pessimistic      remarks regarding   the outcome     of  the peace coufi rence have  come  out.    'Ihe  Russian   envoy      is  $750,01)0,000, live cession of Sagalicn  the reliiuiuisliiiiient  by   Russia ol all  control or IlaneJiiiri-a and Manchurian  affairs, and the recognition of Japan's ' protectorate over Korea. These  terms will, however, be made conditional on their immediate acceptance  by   Russia.  Accompanying      this     proposition  will  be au outline of the extremely  drastic  terms   which   Japan   will feel  called     on  to demand  in  the event  that Russia  rejects tbe primary proposition and  compels  Japan   to* continue fighting     What the latt-ei are  cannot  be  definitely   ascenuained, but  it  is learned that   they  include    the  cession to  Japau   of Vladivostok and  a considerable      portion   of  Russia's  possessions  in   Asia.   It  is  declared  that  thc  president  expressed   regret  that  Japan shuld   consider  it necessary   to present      a second set      of  terms     'immediately,      fearing that  they would be regarded by M.  Witte  and- his  associates   as   a threat,  but  this assertion, while\not improfofcfele,  cannot, lie verified.  The course of tho  Russian   plenipotentiaries,'   when confronted with the  Japanese dual proposition ' can,  of course,  only be conjectured at the-'present time, -but the  opinion that both parties Ao the conference will be to naught appears to  be gaining  ground.

JAS.  A. SMART.  Deputy  Minister  of  the Interior.  Peuartniont  of the Interior,   ���������    ..  It  is      pretty  generally  conceded,  says   the Palmer   Mountain   Prospector,  that  the J Ti II   Road,  known     as  the Vancouver.   Victoria  &  Eastern  a section   of   which  is  now   under construction   along   the  north   holder   of  the county,   will liaVe  its start  from  Midway, B.C., on  the east, extended  down  into  this   country,   skirt      the  north   pari   of   the  country   to   Orci-  ville,, up the Similkameen  to a Point  about 15   miles  northwest of   Loomis  where it  recrusscs the line into 13ri-  tish Co'luinbiia.    For a Jong  time the  starting   point   was   a matter   of   uncertainty and  conjecture,  and  it was  thought   Republic   might,   be   chosen,  iiue   perio I   since  active  movements   began  in   tho spring,  the  Republic  route, seemed   lo  be   the one  most   favorably   considered.        That,  plan,  if ever  seriously considered, lias  evidently   been   abandoned,   and   the'  originally    desigmaled  slai ling| point  decided   on.     For  once   Mr.   Ilill    has  accepted      the   ' route  with   a heavy  grade,     which   heretofore  he        has  studiously   avoided.      Getling    down  from the uplands west of Midway to  the Okanagan  river requires  iu  places   a 2   per   cent,,   grade,   indeed   a 2i  per  cent.      grade  for  a considerable  distance.       Tin's   heavy  grade could  hav������ .been obviated  by taking the Republic route,  but t.herc must be material    advantages     of     exceptional  weight   that  influenced   Mr.  Hill    to  iyiiore  his   great   hobby,   the   insist-  ance  of  light  grades,   a hobby      that  insures the best results* in  the operation  of  a railroad   system.    Tt   was  largely  a matter   of   indifference      to  tlie  people  of   this   locality   as       1o  which route     was^sebcted   to build  over.       A railroad   was   what   they  wanted  and  just  so  it got  here  the  line of construction  was a secondary  consideration.    It is enough   lo  know  that construction  is under  way,  and  now that  a slatting^ point  has   been  definitely   settled   on   the-completion  of the road promises to be as expe-  dious   as the   hands  of   men  can   do  the  building.    Tt  is undeislood     that  contracts   for  grading  have   been   let  from Midway  westward, \-uid "also foi  extending   the  road   from   the   boundary   line   iu   this  country  norlhwaul  to   Princeton.
