W. S. B'ucll',' counsel of tlie  board,' as the result of a long investigation submitted a table of statistics  with regard to> the three principal  'companies in Canada.  The Grand Trunk Pacific Express  company has been-',in', existence only  since October last and it profits so far  have been only $7251  .The Canadian Express company was  organized in 1865 and was bought by  tlie Grand Trunk in 1892 for $600,0(30  or 24 times the amount of the original  capital nvested.' The capital stock  has been increased, to $3,000,000 but  there is nothing to show that any  more money 1ms been put in than the  original $27,500. '  In connection with these figures it  is interesting, to norte that the railway  commission has also expressed the  opinion in a very recent judgment  that it has imperfect control over these  exceedingly prosperous companies,  which are entirely subsidiary to the  railways and afford them a sorb of side  avenue for increasing their profits.  It is also worth noting that W. J.  Stout, president of the Dominion Express company stilted that the tolls on  the transportation of fish from British Columbia to eastern Cariad-iarid  the eastern.states hist yeair exceeded  $300,000.   .     ' . ' ..;: -    ; : ;,  These figures will set people thing-:  ing anew'about that plank in Mr.  Borden's platform- which, demands  control of all public utilities and the  development of the railway board into  a public-utility commission.  British Columbia has one reason for  being satisfied /with* her verdict -.last  October.   The .five Conservative-members who spent the  winter in!eastern  Canada did a great, deal of missionary  work and. as a result the British Columbia p6ilit of view today is far better understood and irieets with more  sympathy in the east than was the case  with regard to the oriental labor problem!   The view of the Pacific coasst  in trie matter was presented hot only  in parliament but at Canadian club  meetings and other gatherings, more  especially by Mr. Cowan and Mr. Burrell.   Not only has the public sentiment of eastern Canada been educated  on  the subject,  but the conservative  party,  which in the nature of things,  soon will have the control of tlie destinies of the dominion, has been much  impressed by the views held and arguments put forth'by so valued and influential m- contingent' as rts five irien  from British  Oolulbia.   This province  may expect in the near-future to exert  a greater influence in the councils of  the nation  than   ever has been the  case before.  Tlie important fruit indiistry of British Columbia has a spokesman in parliament last session in Martin Burrell.  He devoted a great deal of attention  to the question of how to help the industry in its fight for the. market afforded by tho prairie provinces, as  against the competition of American i  fruitgrowers. His proposals in brief,  were :  The definition  Vancouver Province)  Mr. T. D. Pickard of the Hidden  Creek Mining company was in the  city' yesterday having arrived from  Portland canal on the last boat from  the north.  Mr. Pickard reports that development work is still going oh at the  mine, and that things are now in such  a condition that the actual shipment  of ore could be commenced on short  notice: For the present, however, ow-  ine to the state of the copper market  the company is not anxious to start  shipping. It is expected that matters  will take a'more favorable turn in' tlie  near future. Once they do the number of men at the mine will be largely  increased and work will be commenced on taking, out the ore in  earnest.  The Hidden Creek mine is situated  on. Goose bay, Portland canal.' This  mine is owned by M. K. Rodgers,- a  copper magnate of Butte, who was an  ally of Marcus Daly in the. great fight  with Heinze some twelve years ago. '  ��������� Mr. Pickard states that Mr. M. K.  Rodgers has purchased a gold property on Prince of Wales island and  commenced development work on   it.

R. to Head List.  the  of closed packages,  which has been held to apply Lo apples and pears only, should apply to all  fruits, especially peaches. This step  would deprive the American dealers of  the unfair advantages arising from  methods of packing which they now  enjoy.  The fruit marking regulationsshould  apply to fruit imported into Canada as  well as to fruit exported from it. At  present American fruit enters the  prairie provinces without being subject  to those restrictions and competes  with British Columbia, fruit, which, as  everyone  knows, is  rigidly inspected.  Continued on Page Three  (Victoria Time-*)  James J. Hill may ignor Canada in  the spoken word, but he is compelled  to consider her in his actions as .a  practical * railway man. The Great  Northern Railway Company, \ve are;  told by no less an authority ; than the  Railway World, a journal, published  the United States, will spend during  the present year fifteen million dollars  in the extension of its system,in Western Canada���������that is, in British Columbia and the prarie ^provinces. The  expenditures'.of this company will be  exceeded only-by the outlay of the  Canadian Pacific Railway and the  Grand Trunk Pacific R������iilway'distinctively Canadian corporations. The  Canadian Pacific will invest twenty  millions in extensions and improvements. The Grand Trunk Pacific will  ���������dome'next to the 'Canadian Pacfiic if  it does not actually exceed the expenditures of its principal rival for  supremacy,, the-Great Northern next,  and the Canadian Northern will bring  up the rear with a comparatively,  modest eleven million dollar investment. The total expenditure in the  West during the year wrll be about  eighty-five millions of dollars. The  faith of the great railway companies  in the future of the West could not  be more effectively demonstrated. "It  is siich statistics," says the Toronto  Globe, "that show how rapidly a new  nation is awakened into life in what  was till recently an almost unknown  land. This so-called boom in railway  building, almost startling as it is in  aggregate estimate is barely keeping  pace with the substantia.! developniant  of the counti-y served. In every surveyed district settlement has preceded the railways, and settlers are  crying out impatiently for the promised means of reaching markets.  Wherever there is a prospect of railway extension the homesteader is on  Tthe spot, ready to furnish his share  i of business when transportation enterprise does its part. This railway  expansion may with propriety be designated a boom, but the word must not  be used in its disparaging sense. The  substantial growth of the. country  served promises abundant returns on  the railway investments now freely  made. The ambitious projects of the  Dominion are justified alike by the  immediate and future prospects of  substantial development. Railway enterprise on such a scale would be  alarming in a country less richly endowed with natural resources, but  Canada is merely coming to. her own  and making proper use of the wealth  she has inherited." '  (Satuaday.'Sunset)  The Provincial  Government should  see to it that the efforts of Col. Robert  Stevenson,    pioneer   prospector, and  miner of the Similkameen   to secure a  road from Hope to Summit Camp, are  crowned with' sirccess before next  winter's Snows fly. That road, as has  been repeatedly shown, is the connecting link between the Fraser-and the  Similkameen Valleys. It will open' up  in its course agricultural jand mining  areas "of great importance. It will  make the Summit Camp accessible to  investor and miner. It will provide a  means of transporting rich ore capable  of bearing the charges of a twenty-  four mile road haul to Hope. There is  plenty of such ore in the [Summit  Camp. 1700 lbs. of it. taken out under  tremendous difficulties, smelted at  Tacoma yielded 70 per cent in lead,  4 per cent. in. copper, 215 ounces of  silver and'$12 in gold.  The Summit Camp road will run  within three miles of railway Pass",  through which the V. V. <fc E. will  probably came, and by that short extension it could be used as a supply  road for railway construction. In any  case the road is an urgent necessity  for the development of Summit Camp.  By extending it into the Tulameen it  would give a link by which Avith some  minor improvements to existing roads,  an automobile trip could be made from  this city to Spokane.' That fact alone  gives it a large importance for easy  communication by this means is a  most effective means of attracting attention and interests of the great resources of the Similkameen Valley.  Great   Northern.  Takes    First   Official  Step for Connecting up   Oroville  and Wenatchee  The following news item conveys a  meaning that beats rumor all to  pieces. It is'EX cathedra, and shows  that the building of the short route  from Oroville'to Wenatchee is soon to  become an accomplished fact. The  item is* dated Olymphia June 7th and  reads:  "The Great Northern railway to-day  filed with the secretary of state a. certificate that its directors had passed a  resolution ordering construction and  operation of a branch to begin near  Wenatchee. It will run northerly and  northeasterly along the Columbia  river through the counties of Chelan  and Douglas to the junction of the  Okanogan and Columbia rivers and  thence to a connection with the present Great Northern branch at Oroville in Okanogan county, a distance  of about 131 miles.  , AT THE A.

'.They-'are all interested heavily  in timber oh the island arid on the  mainland and most of them have  friends here.  The party chartered the best car the  Great 'Northern had to come west, and  brought with, them their own press  representative as well as one of the  most.famous foresters on the continent, Professor J. E. Roth; He is at  present professor of forestry at the  University of Michigan arid a right  hand man of Chief Forester Pinchot of  the United States government, It was  urider him at Cornell that Dr. Ji'dson  Clark, of this city, first started the  study of forestry.  "You have in British Columbia" he  said to a World representative, "what  is probably the richest and most re-  riiai-kable timber area in the world.  As the premier industry of the province it is criminal that you have no  organization for the protection of the  timber. There are tlie nugget grabbers  men who are not real lumberman, but  are spectators, here as in our lumber  states. They are the menace to future  generations, for the lumberman himself is gradually being educated against  waste in the forest,  "Ah ideal situation could be created  There  which would make British Columbia    the   richest   district   in  the  world.   The valuable assets you have  in timber could be made to pay all the  taxes necessary for  the development  of the  country.    Here is a plan  that  may sound Utopian at first, but put it  up to  your   lumberman  and   to   the  government   for    consideration;    let  them  discuss it and begin  to think,  and you will find that the sincere ones  will favor   the  scheme   in   the   end.

The first day's count showed that  more than ninety thousand persons  had passed through the gates. Since  the opening the attendance has been  far above all expectations, or estimates  made by Exposition experts based on  the population of Seattle and the sur  rounding country.  The first day was a typical Seattle  crowd and the holiday spirit prevailed.  There was riot even the slightest hitch  anywhere, the exposition made good  every protnise and now the fair that  is ready will be the show place of the  Pacific until the gates close October 16.  . There is no best time to visit the exposition. Every day witnesses sorhe  big -"ffeature. Airships soar high above  the tallest buildings on the grounds,  the Pay Streak, where the Fun King  reigns supreme, is simply lined with  attraction's; some educational, others  amusing.  The Midway is the night life of the  big show arid the band concerts and  iirumrriatiori of the buildings in the-  ceritral court are even more beautiful  than was ever dreamed of by. the men  who planned the electrical effects.  At night the Cascades and Geyser-  Basin where the waters, colored by  hidden lights, dash and foam, holdirig-  the attention' of the crowd for hours.  Inries band concerts in the Musie  Pavilion, are alone a. feature. Such  bands are seldom engaged for an exposition, and the A. Y. P. offers a rare  musical treat.  Commencing with Sanday June-13������  several busy days are promised for'the  Exposition. Jirne 14 will be the first  day of British Columbia week, and  Vancouver* and Victoria people will be  in Seattle by the thousand. Special  excursions by rail and steamer lines  will bring the visitors to the Exposition city.  Three big features will be crowded  into one day,;Jnne 15, for it will be  California Promotion Day as well as  the day on which the Free and Accepted Masons will hold meetings of the  Grand Lodge, and the Pacific Coast  Advertising nun will be at the Exposition in full force.  There is much to see in the buildings  on the grounds that is new to Expositions and the display of the U. S.  government is holding the attention  of visitors to Seattle who have seen all  the big Expositionsof an international  character.  The daily "^programme includes  parades by the^tronps, athletic events  in the stadium, bayonet exercises by  infantry, exhibition drills by the army  and navy, life-saving drill by government life savers, demonstration of  mine rescue work, balloon flights and  other features that will occupy the attention of the visitors every hour of  the day from 9 o'clock in the morning,  until the gates close at midnight.

EARL   GREY  An  extremely ill-judged   attack  has been  made in;'certain'  quarters in eastern  Canada'on  Earl Grey because, while acting  as.governor-general of Canada,  he  has attended   and  enjoyed  the  horse  races at   Woodbine  Track,   Toronto.      If   his   Excellency likes  good horses and  likes to see them race there are  few Canadians who would deny  him the privilege. Even though  he is  the representative  of the  King that does not shut him off  from the enjoyment of pleasures  that others are free  to indulge  in.  .Governors   general are not  sent to Canada to sit in state at  Ottawa,  signing official papers  as   necessity    arises    and    discharging  the  other   duties   of  their, office--'in-.a stiff and formal  CANADA AND THE A. Y. P.  James. J. Hill, the Great Northern   Hail/way   magnate, who  . delivered the "inaugural" at the  opening of  the Alaska-Yukon-  Pacific "Exposition," it appears  in his speech of  more  than  an  hour's length, made no allusion  to Canada.    We confess  better  and broader things might have  been expected of Mr. Hill,  who  is or was, a Canadian, and is a  railway magnate of Canada as  well as of the  United  States.  But we suppose  Mr.  Hill,  like  . all of his kind, attuned his song  to  harmonize   with  the  sentiments     of   his    audience.    Although the prefix "Yukon"  has  been applied to the designation  of the exhibition, that was probably only an afterthought Suggested by   purely   business   as  distinguished   from   sentimental    considerations.      We    are  told the colors  displayed upon  the buildings   and  throughout  . the city were  all  American  or  slight  variations  of the Stars  and Stripes.    We are not finding fault with   these features,  because they are manifestations  of the  great   American spirit,  which is not distinguished for  its liberality, nor even for courtesy under  such circumstances.  Still the "exposition" is. heralded as   an   international affair,  and, all things   considered,  our  esteemed neighbors might have  stretched a point out of regard  for the  feelings  or  sentiments  of     their     neighbors   without  causing tlie noble eagle to droop  his tail feathers in dejection.  We. have not yet had the opportunity to see these   things  for ourselves.    We  are basing  our   remarks    upon   the   comments of those who  have  been  at the fair and were more impressed perhaps by what they  regarded as an  oversight than  they   possibly   ought   to  have  been.    We   suppose,    however,  that permission has  been graciously extended  the   management  of. the Canadian exhibit  to fly tho Canadian flag over the  building in which the said  display is housed.    That is if such  .a courtesy could   be   extended  -way.  The recent   attack   on   Earl  Gray  is particularly   deplored  for when  it was made he was  about to sail for the old country  on a visit.    His Excellency has  now  been about five years in  Canada as governor general and  the  recent  announcement that  he  was to be "allowed' td^complete his full term of' six years  was    received    with    genuine  pleasure from  one  end of the  Dominion to the other.  During  the  time he has been   in the  country Earl Gray has succeed-  ea in winning the affections of  the people toan extent that few  other governors  general  have  done.    While taking an active  interest   in : every   big   public  movement and in the life of the  people generally  he has so conducted himself that he has.given  offence to none.    Graciousness,  sound judgment and tact have  characterized his discharge of  his high office of representative  in this  country  of the King's  Most Gracious Majesty.  Earl Grey is far too big a  man to be affected by the petty  criticism which has been levelled at him, but Canadians  generally will deplore the narrowness which prompted and  the bad taste which gave voice  to the attacks on one whom  they would like to honor in  every possible  way.���������Ex.  Day" .was the way the-collection boxes supplied by the German Navy. League weralabelled  and   the   "great   day"   about  which    the    German   children  were  harangued  was the day  when  a German Navy was to  crush    the   power of   Britain.  Now it may take a long time to  collect money enough through  the kiddies'  collection boxes to  build a very   formidable navy  and for   that reason   Asquith  and his associates may figure on  a  very  long   respite,   but   the  most significant feature of that  juvenile   move   is   the   naval  spirit    which    it    is   creating  among youth of'.Germany.  At one time in Britain's hisr  tory it was necessary for the  British fleet to go into the  Baltic and lay hands  upon the  fleet     of    a      non-belligerent  power  rather than  allow it to  fall into the hands of the enemy.  In  view, of Germany's actions  and  the  speeches   of   the   admirals  who  were the  most incendiary of all who took part in  the Kiel pi-bceedings.     Britain  would  be fully justified in taking the   Battle  of the   Baltic  when Denmark's fleet was annexed by Nelson, as a precedent,  and send the Channel Squadron  up  to the north   with instructions to  either sink  or capture  everything in the shape  of a  war vessel that Germany has  afloat.     As a matter  of   cold  business it would pay better to  use the  present British fleet as  a weapon to deal with Germany's  present naval aspirations in that  summary way than to  go on  taxing  the British, people   for  money  to   build  more   dreadnoughts to maintain the same  preponderance   over the   German    navy   which   has   been  found necessary in the past.  1836  THE BANK Of  "73 Years in Business.

The Laurier government shows badly  in the correspondence relating to thu  coming Imperial Naval conference in  London next July. It will be recollected that the imperial government, on  being informed of- the passing of the  famous "kind words" resolution, of the  projected visit of Sir Frederick Borden  and Mr.lBrodeu������,'*to London to .consult  the Admiralty,'' made the- thoroughly  reasonable suggestion that an Imperial  Naval conference���������one of the subsidiary gatherings arranged for in 1907  ���������be convoked.  To this suggestion which amply  guarded out autonomous position, the  -Laurier government returned whatcan  ohly.be described a.sa most petulant  and ungracious reply. Let us quote it:,  "My ministers havenotsufficent information to warrant them iri advising  as to the necessity of such a formal  conference in advance of the conference  of 1911. The views of the Canadian  House of Commons on the. question of  naval defence Have already been expressed. Tn pursuance of the" resolution of that body.two of the ministers  as already annpunced, will shortly go  to London -to discuss with the Admiralty the best method of carrying ������out  that resolution. .Their visit will probably take place in June biit there will  be no objection to postponing it until  July if the imperial authorities prefer  such delay."  " ....  Which amounts to this : 'iWe don't  want to attend .your conference. Wje  have told you.iilready what we mean  to do. We are going anyway to send  a couple of minsters to consult the Admiralty, not your naval conference.  We wished to send them in Juno: but,  Oh, well! if you insist, we will let  them wait until July." "  Whereupon the "colonial office which  some hasty men describe as slow,  seized upon the last grudging phrase,  and with calm, ihiperturable dexterity, replied : "Thank you so much for  your cordial acceptance."  And Sir- Wilfrid Laurier was taken  into camp.

The careful work done by the provincial government is keeping British  Columbia orchards free from disease  and pests is familiar. Mr. Burrell's  proposal would greatly aid the work.  The Laurier government boasts that  it has acquired the power of making  treaties. The truth is that the Canadian government had under Sir John  Macdonald all-the power it has now,  and made much better use of it. Let  us see the Laurier government's record :  There was the joint high commision  which met at Quebec; a failure.  Then they accomplished the Alaska  treaty, including an arbitration in  which they were hopelessly worsted  by the decision of the commissioner  named by themselves. They lost this  case by rejecting British advice.  The British treaty with Japan gave  Canada the right to join or remain  out, and the British government suggested to Canada that if she accepted  she might foliow the example of Australia and Natal by reserving the control of immigration.- Instead Canada  contracted to accept all Japanese who  came to Canada, and gave them the  same rights as our own people. The  result was that our Mr. Lemioux had  to go to Japan and beg the Japanese  government as a favor to keep the  Japanese people at home. He succeeded only because the British embassy in  i\ :,     Concluded on Page Four. -���������{'���������.  ment.jthenjown-iall the timber. It  belong to the people by right.

Secondly, forbid them to devastate the  limits: do riot allow indiscriminate  slashing. Thirdly, compel these men  to see that the property is reforested.  Nature will attend to this if the timber-  is cut right, but if not it is a small  matter to plant the trees. There are  limits in Europe that have been  worked under these conditions for  four hundred years and they gave up  an annual income that is, comparatively, equal to what the British Columbia investor gets from one cutting.  You are at the beginning, practically,  of the industry in this province. There  is no other district on the continent  where the scheme could be tried as  successfully. The United States is beginning to realize the importance of  preserving its timber and the scheme I  have roughly outlined has been tried  and favorably received on government  timber reserves across the border."

Origin of These Two Customs of the  Playhouse.  :  Hissing in playhouses had its origin  In Paris in 16S0 on the occasion of the  presentation of Fontenello's tragedy.  "Aspar." Prior to that time suffering  audiences were wont to yawn audibly  and fall asleep when the apathy of the  actors and .performances justified that  course. But on this occasion the indignant audience, driven to desperation  by the platitudes of Aspar, voiced their  anger by hisses, which drove the actors into temporary retirement,, according to the testimony of the poet Eoi,  who alludes to the incident in his  "Brevet de la Calotte.'' Hissing thereafter became fashionable.  The first encore., noted in the annals  of the stage was - accorded, to. Livius  Andronicus, a Roman actor. He was  popular with the masses and was  called back so often to repeat his  speeches that he in self defense  brought a boy to declaim for him while  he himself applied the gestures. While  encores became the rage in subsequent  ages, it is known that Andronicus' plan  of haling an understudy before him before the audience to share his honors  has not generally been adopted by  Thespians.���������Show World.
