V  PROFESSOR ODLUM ON  HARBOR IMPROVEMENTS  At and Adjacent to Vancouver  ���������������������������'���������"'* One cannot, sail. very. farvin any direction  along the coast oif British Columbia without  seeing in the offing an occasional fountain of  spray, followed by the flash of 4 mighty fluke  betraying the presence of a whale- Often in the.  Gulf of Georgia, or off the west coast of Vancouver Island, the 'traveller is treated to the  sight of a school of,whales, apparently enjoying  a titanic game of tag, or he may share in the  excitement of a whale hunt, if fortunate enough  to secure a berth on one of the steamers of the  Pacific Whaling Company. This company has  "been, operating for;about four years with great  success, the average catch being over 600 whales  per season. The company has adopted modern  methods, and instead of the old style of sailing  ship and whale boats, employs fa3t steamers,  which dash-boldly alongside the whale and dispatch it with a well-directed shot from a machine gun. The carcass is then towed to the  i whaling station, where it is hauled on to a suitable stage by machinery and cut up so that  , every portion of the huge mammal is. utilized.  This method of whaling was established in Norway several years ago, and later in Newfound-  , land and Quebec. The profits of whaling by  this system are large, averaging from 15 per  cent to 40 per cent. *  Several species of wfcale are found in the  North Pacific and Behring Sea, of whicii may be  mentioned the sulphur-bottom (Sibbaldius sul-  L tweet), the bow-head (Baloeua��������� mysticetus),  the sharp-head -toner. (Baloeuoptera david-  soni), the right whale (Baloeua japonica), and  the humpback (Megapera versabilis).  Tbe sulphur-bottom, which is the most common in  British Columbia waters, grows to an enormous  size, an average specimen weighing about 60  tons, and worth to its captors over $500.   A  whale of this size should yield 6 tons of oil,  worth $450; 3 1-2 tons of body bone, $175;  J 3 1-2 tons of guano, $105, and three hundred-  B weight of whalebone, worth $48, or a total of  7$778, which, after deducting expenses, .estimated at $206, would give a net profit of $572.  LA humpback, which is a smaller whale, averaging about 27 tons, should give a profit of $140,  [while a finback, weighing 50 tons, is credited  ,|with a gain of $338.   The right whale is much  ifmore rare than an yof the others named, but,  Rioffers a grand prize to the hunters, for he'is  I worth $10,000.   yrv- ���������-^���������'v77k7k\.  ^e^cific^VH^gvComp^^  jthe coast of Vancouver Island, equipped Withy  Imodern plant. On arrival at the station, the  P whale is raised from the water on an adjustable platform, for cutting up. Incisions are  Vnade in the cares, running from head to tail,  id a foot apart. This divides the blubber into  5ong, narrow strips, which are then torn or  istripped off by means of large hooks attached  tap w������e ropes which are operated by a steam  /winch. The blubber is then cut into small  fsquares and-put through a mincing machine,  from which it goes to the steam-heated "trying-  aut" tanks, where the oil is extracted. The  sidue of the blubber and the jean meat are  ([converted into guano and glue. The body  nones are crushed, ground, and sold as fertiliser, while the whale bone is carefully cut from  Vhe jaws, trimmed and shipped to Dundee,  [Scotland, the home of the whaling industry-  1 Whalers, operating in the Sea of Japan and  Kjehring Sea, do a considerable trade in whale  R^neat, which is extensively used for food in Ja-  j^an.  Instead of converting the "beef" into fer- ;  ���������lizer it is salted and in this form commands a  J,ietter price. The importation, of whale meat  ito Japan amounts to over two million pounds  tmufilly, -representing a value of over $50,000.  .ickled whales' tails are esteemed a delicacy  la Japan, and large quantities are shipped from  |}his coast.  About twO-thirds of the whales captured are  _to-whales, either with suckling calves, or with  Koung unborn, the females being broader across  \ke body and slower in movement, as well as  lidding more oil, are more easily captured than  Vie males. This, and the fact that whales are  iVinted at all seasons, should induce the au-  IWities to adopt reasonable restrictive meas-  t^es for the preservation of these valuable cre-  jEures.. Tbe indiscriminate slaughter of whales  if? .the North Sea, the Atlantic, and. Gulf of St.  tawrence, has practically destroyed the indus-  ijjr in those waters, and without protection the  Ijone thing is likely to occur on this coast."  phe last clause of the foregoing official state-  W is what we wish to draw attention to.  ('re. we have a company which for immediate  ifn is destroying an industry which would un-  i   proper protection last for many years, by  (Continued on Page 5)  Some objections have been taken to the attitude of the.editor of this journal on  the B. C. Fisheries and the relation of* Asiatic fishermen thereto. It is contended by  some that these Japanese are "naturalized British subjects," and liave equ(al rights  with white men. It is further claimed that if we interefere we shall cause trouble  between Canada and Japan.   We purpose answering both these objections.  In the .first place we affirm that the naturalisation..of Japanese hi this Province  is a giganticfarce. These men are naturalized (?) by the score, and no one knows  % who they are, or if they even exist. It is purely a paper naturalization for purposes  ':' of gain, to secure business privileges which cannot be obtained otherwise, and in no  ���������"sense with a view of becoming citizen's, nor do they become airy the less subjects of  ������ the Mikado.'  Again, if they are really citizens why do they not vot.e% Would any of  * these apologists for Japanese labor publicly advocate giving the 10,000 Japanese.  * fishermen the,franchise'? The fact-is we do not recognize them as citizens, nor dare  % we do so, for they could easily swamp the.whites at the polls and \yould vote as in-  * str ucted.  Few of them ui ldersta nd Engl ish and know little or nothing of our in-  * stitutious or'history, and we dare not grantthe franchise, therefore we contend in  1 spite of the legal farce that they are not British Subjects.  * As another proof of this^e point to the contention that is made, that if we inter-  % fere, the Mikado of Japan will be appealed to.   If these men are British subjects  what right would the Mikado have to interfere f  The very fact that is is constantly  argued that the Japanese Government would be offended if these fishermen were refused rights here is prima facie evidence that they are still subjects of the Mikado  J and therefore cannot claim rights as citizens of Canada,  Our contention is that the time has passed when such "milk and water "arguments may be acepted, but rather that we should face the question, andTho matter  who is 'hit," decide it in the best interests of Canada.   For years political*heelers J  have been getting fat off British Columbia's fisheries and by an unholy, unpatriotic  ������ alliance with Japanese merchants and coolies.  If this system is allowed to continue it i  ',! will be a monument of shame to the Conservatives of this province.   We have, as a .'.  J party, condemned the Liberals, and it is now up to us to make good.  If, in doing our duty, some political favorite is the loser, he must go in tbe-jn^f  J terest of the whole community. -���������"'���������" ~ "-'  Reader, keep this fact in mind, viz., that, whereas ten years ago there were t  9,500 white fishermen on this coast, now there are very few, but in their place there ;;  are upwards of 10,000 Japanese, who have a secret society at which .and through J  which they manipulate this great industry, .'.  This organization is under the control of a "syndicate" whicii operates from Seat- J  tic, Tacoma^and Ivol e, and are backed by the largest and most powerful financial in-  f terests in Japan.   Shall this condition continue, or shall we administer our affairs in  " the interests of our own citizens '?"���������'.  i ;..'..:..K<******4>.X>*^  *  *  y  % ������������������ ...  -..r      *.    __ -���������.������������������..��������� *_  Exonerated  A large and representative committee met in  the City Hall last week. It represented several  cities aud municipalities. The course it took and  its action in-asking the Dominion Government to  appoint a Commission to examine into and "report  upon the best means of developing the port of  Vancouver and adjacent .-waterways, were eminently practical and wise.  And all who know Alderman Stevens are sure  he will not tarry in doing his duty at > Ottawa.  Premier Borden and his party are already in deepest sympathy with the expanding of Canadian harbors, both East and West.     7  But���������and how strange the "but" must appear  ���������rwhat will be the inevitable result, if we base  our conclusions on the usual course of parliamentary procedure? THere it is in a nut-shell:  In due time, notice will be given the Department of Marine and Fisheries.' There will follow  consultations/between that department" and the  cabinet. Orders will be given to departmental  officials to thoroughly look over, and into all past  correspondence and orders bearing upon this matter.        ',/' ��������� "  These reports will be presented to the chief of  the department. He will pass the data in tabulated form to the minister. He will call in his  responsible office engineer and prepare a report  for the cabinet executive. At its meeting, or ra- ���������  ther one of its meetings, it will examine into and  report to the full cabinet its advices.  Then there will be need to make a recommendation to the government; an estimate of cost to be  passed upon; and a general plan accepted, and  to be sent up to parliament.  Some time next year, the necessary money will  be voteel for the initial and commission expenses.  Later on a. commission will be appointed, and  during the summer of 1912 that commission will, .  in all probability, get to work.   An engineer will  .  have to be found, one of the best' on earth, and ,  set. to work.   His labors will be extensive and  must require such time as will permit a thorough,  -.surveyof Burrard Inlet, False Creek, English Bay  and both '.'arms" of the Fraser River.  This work may be accomplished before the end  of 1912. but I have my doubts. And in addition  to the above, the commission will need to go to  the great seaport centres of the maritime countries of the world, so as to see for themselves the  thousand ancl one up-to-date methods of dealing  with ports, harbors, sea-walls, basins, locks, tides,  wing-dams ������ind all the rest of the complicated and  necessary adjuncts of an improvement so vast and  varied as is required for Vancouver, yet to be one  of the world's greatest ports. Such a trip would  require the labors of a full year, if the work were  well done in the interests of all Canada.  Thus.' then, it is not likely any report, worth  forwarding to the government and people, can be  formulated before the middle or end of 1913. And  this delay is both commendable and necessary.  Hence we must not be too ready to condemn our  member, or government, because we will be forced  to take very, considerable time before the wheels  of machinery begin to manifest themselves in tangible form. -  tt  A  ii.  Not long ago a plain clothes officer sought to arrest a "suspect" and in doing so X  '**' the man, a young fellow 22 years old, broke for freedom and ran up a lane, pursued t  ;; by the officer. The officer saw that the young man was gaining on him and fired two %  ','. shots at the ground, in order to firighten him into surrender, he continued to run i-  ���������' when the officer fired (at his legs) a third shot which penetrated his lung and killed j*  J him. At .the coroner's inquest the officer was exonerated, as also by the Board of |  Police Commissioners. It is not our intention to unnecessarily condemn the action ������  J of the officer but we believe it an incident worthy of more than passing attention.    ���������  ���������      In the first place the victim WAS NOT CONVICTED  OF ANY CRIME, |  ONLY SUSPECTED. i  Secondly, there was no proof of his guilt in the hands of the police and the evidence of stolen property in his room was-  not   discovered   until   after   he   was  slaughtered."  Thirdly, had he been guilty of theft, the evidence only went to show it was J  petty theft," which docs not warrant taking a rnan^s \ii!c. X  $ Fourthly, the officer knew the young man, knew whore lie roomed and conse- ������  J quently had every facility to ensure his-re-arrest,'and'further it does not redound |  ���������** to the credit of the officer that-he was forced to shoot a man who only had a start of |  30 feet. i  *  As stated, we do not wish to be unfair in our criticism of the officer, whose duty %  is difficult and risk}', but we do wish to express our absolute condemnation of a sys- *  tern which permits of such reckless use of fire-arms by an officer.   The public fre- ������  quently attach the police,,for not performing tlieir duty and then go to the other ex- g  treme in "condemning them, these extremes we would avoid, at the same time'submit *  1 that to be suspected of theft is not sufficient to warrant the taking of life. ������  5* . ���������!���������  i In arresting a desperate criminal known to be guilty of a "crime against the ���������>  $ person" an officer niayvbe justified in using his gun but certoinly not in effecting |  t the arrest of anyone suspected of a crime against property. ���������  t Such reckless and indiscriminate use of fire-anns brings a volume of oppro- ���������  ? brium on the police, who, generally speaking, merit our most hearty support and *  ? approval. This incident should not be dropped at this point, for two reasons, first, %  |. because it will tend to encourage such reckless use of arms by young officers, which ?  ��������� may result in loss of life and perhaps in a subsequent verdict of murder; second, %  % because it is a travesty of justice to allow it to pass. y     ; 1    %  ^^^H-j^:-X--:~H^~X^^~H^^~H~J4������i-\^**********. 1 * I'l******* *********<H>'\ I il'M 111.1.1 liM*  ���������f  V  T  Of course there is a sort of work which can be  done on a. limited scale in the meantime. Certain  improvements:can, and should be done, in connection with the First Narrows, and False Creek,  af least as far as Main street.  Already the Department of Marine and '"Fish-  cries has considerable and trustworthy information supplied by practical engineers, upon which  the present, most urgent and absolutely necessary  improvements"can-be made. ������������������'���������."  But no hurry, impatience, or pressure concerning the Panama Canal should be permitted to hinder us from the most detailed, comprehensive and  matured examination of the great seaports of the  world, and the adoption of the best possible plan  ������to be developed therefrom. The cost is of little  matter so long as we plan for the coming ages,  during whieh our city will creep up to first or second place among-the. mighty harbors, of'the na������  tions. Whatever the cost may be. and however  large may be the scheme, avc need to spend annually only so much as we arc able reasonably to devote to this work, side by side with the other important civic and national improvements demanding monetary assistance.  _ But we must primarily...fundamentally and continuously demand that the commission, experts  and government face7; the whole problem of preparing, not foroa patchwork harbor, but for the  best laid out scheme yet found by the great maritime cities of the earth. Tliis is our golden moment.- Are we sufficiently painstaking and patient  to accomplish this gigantic task, requiring hundreds of years in its lull expansion?  WHICH SHALL PREVAIL IN CANADA?

The- first big wave of the retreating tide enveloped the lighthouse  and smote it with thunderous silence.  Screams came from the women's quarters. '  "Go, Enid," said Constance. "Tell  them they have nothing to fear. They  must expect these things to happen  Ior nearly two hours. Tell them what  dad said. Twenty-five years, you  know."  Brave hearts! What Infinite penetration inspired the man who first  said "Noblesse oblige!"  Constance looked in at the kitchen.  Pyne loomed through k fog of steam.  "Pay no heed to these���������" she was  Interrupted by another mighty thump  and cataract roar��������� "these blows of  Thor's hammer," she cried.  ,   "Play me for an anvil," he returned.  She descended to the depths, to reassure the men. Talking with shrill  cheerfulness at each doorway' was  easy. It helped her to go down, down,  feeling stone and iron trembling as  ���������every surge was hurled many feet  above her head. At last, she stood  on the lowest floor. Beneath her feet  was naught but granite and iron bars.  Here was solidity. How grateful to  know of this firm base, rooted in the  very world. Her heart leaped to' her  mouth, but not with fear: She was  proud of the lighthouse, strong in the  knowledge of its majestic strength.  | Nevertheless, in thte fclaCe, 'the  source of her own sense of security,  n\\9 found uneasiness among the men.  They, were all sailors ln this lowest j  is the old Princess iibyal. Eh?  What's  that?" '  . He guffawed mournfully at Brand's  involuntary exclamation.  "Certain! Well, surely I ought to  know. I have passed most of my service with the company in her, and  when I took a crew to Cramp's to  navigate her to New York after she  was smartened up I little imagined I  would see her laid by forever the next  'time we saw the lights of Old England. My goodness, even what was  left of the old girl ought to know her  way better'n that." "  "But what did really happen?"  ..- "Drivin" her I tell you���������-drivin' ^her  full pelt to land the mails at Southampton twelve hours ahead of schedule. With that awful sea liftin'-her,  and a shaft twenty feet longer, what  could you expect? Poor Perkins! A  tare hard worker, too. Now he's gone  down with the ship an' over two hundred passengers an' crew."  "Judging by the number saved I  feared that more were lost."  ��������� "It's the off season, you know. The  passenger list was light. For the  Xord's sake, think of what it might  have been in May or.June1"  "It is bad enough as (ito.   All has lectin' as escort."  couldn't be helped. The passengers  had to be battened down. They could:  n't live on deck. We never gave iri  until the last minute."  "I, saw that," said Brand, knowing  the agony which prompted the broken  explanation.  "An' not a mother's soul would have'  escaped if it wasn't for young Mr.  Pyne," went on the sailor.  "Is that the name of the youngster!  who climbed the fore-mast?"  "That's him. It was a stroke of.  genius, his catching onto that way.  He was as cool as a cucumber. Just'  looked up when he reached the deck  an' saw the lighthouse so near. Then"  he asked me for a rope. Planned the'  whole thing in a second, so to speak."  "He is not one of the ship's comJ  pany?"  "No, sir, a passenger, newy of Cy-^  rus J. Traill, the Philadelphian mil-!  lionaire. Haven't you heard of Traill?,  Not much of a newspaper reader, eh?:  There was a lady on board, a Mrs..

Young  Pyne  wad  might be, probe, long-buried memories, and why did her mobile smile  seem to veil a hostile intent?  But the fresh, gracious maidenhood  in her castv aside these unwonted  studies in mind-reading.  "He has so much to do," she explained. "Although there are many of  us on the rock to-night he has never  been so utterly alone. Won't you  wait inside until I return?"  "Not unless I am in the way,"  pleaded the other. "I was choking in  there.    The air here, the space, are  Jiot ended with the disappearance of  the vessel."  >  The sailor shot a sharp glance at  prand.  ���������  "You can't be thinkin' anyone was  to    blame���������"    he  commenced.    But  prand waved aside the fancied imputation. '  "Blame!" he said.   "With a broken  fhaft! In that whirlwind! No, no.  sent for you to talk over the new  {difficulty which has tb be faced.

"Up aloft for me!" cried another.  *   "Let's die with bur eyes open, anyhow," chimed in a third.      77  But a light flashed in the rolling  orbs of the man who was already on  the stairs. Astounded, he drew back.  Constance stood in their midst, a  mere girl, radiant, smilingly unconcerned,, addressing them in calm  wards, broken only by the fitful  noises.  ' "Sorry your quarters���������so very unpleasant. Only last a-r-couple of  hours. Twenty-five years���������far worse  galeB.   Want any more cocoa?"

I will ask my father, and if  ^it- should=,bje=dange_roufuy will^come  back and let, you know. In a few  hours it will be daylight, and if the  Bea falls he will come and open the  door."  By sheer inspiration she had uttered the formula destined to annihilate  the necromantic bluster of the hammering* waves. Open the door! So  this ponderous racket was a mere,  tidal trick, a bogey, which each passing minute would expose more thoroughly.  "All. right, miss, an' Gawd bless  yer," growled one who had not spoken  hitherto.    There was a chorus of ap-  ?roval. Constance gave a little gulp,  he cultured and delicate lady lying  ln the bunk above had not spoken so.  , "Indeed," she gasped, "God bas  blesBed some of us this night."  ! Then she fled, further utterance  tailing her.  ' Nearer the sky, Brand tended the  lamp and discussed matters with  chief officer Emmett. The sailor,  with the terse directness of his class,  told how the Chinook had made an  excellent voyage from New York until she ran into bad weather about  (our hundred miles west ot the Lizard.

"A vague one, and this is no time  to gossip about it. Can I get you anything?"  Enid felt that she really must not  prolong their conversation, and the  other woman's exclamation threatened  further talk.  "No, thank you.    You'll excuse me,  ;I know.

''The keepers, both principal and  "assistant, are enjoined never to allow  fcny interests, whether private or  otherwise, to interfere with the discharge of their public duties, the importance of which to the Bafety ol  navigation cannot be' overrated."  There was ho ambiguity in the  Hvords, no halting sentence '.. which  opened a way for a man to plead: "1  thought it best." Those'who framed  the rule meant what they Baid. No  man could bend the steel of their intent.  ; To end the Intolerable strain of hit  thoughts Stephen Brand forced hit  lips to a thin smile and his voice to  feay harshly:  . "If the worst comes to the worst,  ^here are more than three thousand  [gallons of colza oil in store. That  ahould maintain life.

She, coming up, held the  swinging lantern level with her face.  They hung back, politely.  "Please come," she cried in her winsome way. "These stairs are too narrow for courtesy."  They stepped heavily onward. She  flitted away. Emmett raised his lantern between the purser's face and  his' own.  ^'.'What do  you  think of that?"  he  whispered,  awestricken.  The man of accounts smiled broad-  iy:  "Pretty girl!" he agreed, with crudely emphatic superlatives.       ��������� '  Emmett shook his head. He murmured to himself: "I guess I'm tired.

Constance had not the  requisite hardihood to tell them how  ihey misconstrued her words. *  As she quitted them she admitted  to herselt that Mrs. Vansittart, though  disturbing in some'of her moods, was  really very considerate. It never occurred to her that her new acquaintance might haye suddenly discovered  the 'exceeding wisdom of a proverb  concerning second thoughts.  Indeed, Mrs Vansittart now bitterly  regretted the impulse' which led hjer  to betray any knowledge of Stephen  Brand' or his daughter.

Something .for consideration is provided by  ��������� Archdeacon Renison, of Moose Fort, James Bay,  who has charge of Angelican mission work in the  Moosonee di.strict with 6000 scattered population,  lie tells it briefly, not to say bluntly, and deserves  sincere attention. Why, he asks, should our government desire to teach the red man a trade, and  "civilize" him according to the civilization of  the whites, when thev can with less trouble and  more success train him for what he can do infinitely better than he can oir a farm or in a  factory? The fact is overlooked that Indians are  already skilled workmen of thejiighest type, fitted  , for their work by hereditary and centuries of environment. "The government is bringing white  men into the northland for the purpose of surveying, prospecting and geological work, very  often university men, who barely know the difference between a frying paniahll an axe, and by  so doing outsing the Indian'from the ^country  which is his very life, and forwhieh he mid none  other is specially adapted." 7  ' Employ these skilled woodhicn, he urges, in all  surveying and like pioneer work. Employ them,  too, in fire-ranging and game wardenship. Speaking of conservation ���������. in the north country, he  says: "No man can assist in and, indeed, carry  out the work of conservation as well as the  Indian, ,for the woods are his home and conservation is work in whicii he'has no equal-"'  Portages should be cut between the vast band  of lakes which fills New Ontario, and an Indian  should be settled by every lake. The government  might allow him .to erect *a7 home and to cultivate  what land he-liked. His work should be the keeping open of the portage routes, and the guidance  of such white men as should pass through his  territory. In addition, lie could hunt within his  limits, and, in fact, live his own life and at the  same time be of immense use to Canada.  Testimony comes from Port Arthur and other  parts of Ontario as to successful employment of  Indians in directions like those indicated. At a  mission on Lake Nepjgoh.is a group of temperate,  trustworthy Indians whose great services to the  railways/to settlers, and explorers have been testified to most strongly. Where the lily-fingered  ' work of clerking and other indoor avications has  been tried in vain, .the Indian has been found  trusty guide, motor-boat man, chain-man���������all occupations appealing to his nature and keeping him  out of doors. He has been found ,,to be a good  boat-builder as well.���������"Monetary Tomes."  KEELER'S NURSERY  Rose Bushes  l, 2 and 3 years old.  Flowers and Plants at  very low prices.

CHIEF     OF     POLICE     ACTING  QUESTION  OF SUNDAY  CLOSING.  IN  Asked about a recent dispatch from  Victoria in which it was stated that  Attorney-General Bowser had given  his consent to the prosecution of alleged breakers of the Lord's Day Act  in Vancouver, Chief aof Police Cham-  berlin stated this morning that he  had received a letter from Victoria  granting the desired permission and  the prosecutions would be inaugurated as soon as the necessary arrangements could be made. The prosecutions are, of course, against those  whom the deputy chief recently collected evidence, which was submitted  to the attorney-general before he gave  The chief was asked if the decision  of the attorney-general would mean  that there would be any interference  with the men who opened up their  small fruit stores and cigar stands tomorrow.  "Well/'it may," admitted the chief,  but he did not divulge anything of his  plans. ..-'  AN AVIATOR'S IMPROMPTU  BATH.  plane. He ha<J been aloft 30 minutes  and was making his second wide circuit/when the monoplane turned over  and' dropped 90 feet to the ground.  Capt. J. J. Frisbie/Louis Rosenbaum  and Cromwell Dixon-were killed in  America when flying at State Fairs.  The last-named aviator, a youth, of but  19, fell SO feet into a stone, quarry, at  Spokane, Wash.; on October 2nd, owing to his turning: too. sharply to avoid  hitting some telegraph wires, arid sliding down on end as a.; consequence. A  few days "before, at Helena, Mont.,.  Dixon had flown over the Rocky Mountains to Blossburg, a small town '.. 18  miles away, and back again. Blossburg lies in a deep pocket in the mountains, from which wild ducks and geese  escape with difficulty afterv battling  with the air currents sometimes for  hours. It took Dixon twice as long���������  22 minutes���������to attain the necessary  altitude of 7,000 feet at Blossburg as it  did at Helena. The trip out and back  across the 6,200-foot Mullins Pass was  made in 15 and 17 minutes respectively. Djxon was given a $10,000 purse  made up by several men who witnessed  his flight. He delivered a letter from  Governor Norris. This is the second  time a Curtiss biplane liks crossed the  Rockies. Ely was the first to accomplish this featv at Butte, Mont., last  spring.  .  On September 25th, at the Nassau  Boulevard meet, Dr. Clark; a trick  bicyclist, had a fatal fall in a Queen  monoplane. He was unable to accustom himself to moving the warping  control lever outward instead of inward when turning. A sharp turn to  the right, caused by improper warping, resulted in the instant development of gyroscopic force by the revolving motor/sufficient to make the  machine dive vertically, to the ground.  **************************  t  49***********$>*4i***********  t  Heating Stoves & Ranges  That cold snap will soon.be here.

Flying oyer water has always had  a fascination for- aviators, and with  some of them the closer they can fly to  the surface the better they like it. At  the Boston meet last summer T..O. M.  Sopwith* the winner of the $20,000 De-  Forest prize .for the first flight by an  English aviator in England across the  Channel to the Continent, playedvleap  from with the motor boats in the harbor, and greatly scared their occupants. He followed this up by performing similar feats with the automobiles on the Boulevard, and when  he came across a horse the animal is  said to have lain down on the ground  in fright/While repeating this performance over water and scaring the  bathers at Brighton Beach last September, Sopwith, who was accompanied by that other, daring aviator, Lee  Hammond, met his Waterloo. He was  barely skimming the surface and had  just risen to a height of 15 or 20 feet  in order to fly back oyer terra firma,  when his motor stopped and the aeroplane dived into the water. Both aviators jumped and escaped without becoming entangled in the wreckage.  The aeroplane stopped bottom side up  and completely submerged. - The machine was towefl ashore s by motor  boats. In a few days Sopwith had it  fully repaired.  RECIPROCITY AND PULPWOOD.  Our recitation is  1*  It;  \yhile the use' of a suspended car  is not altogether new, yet the one now  being tried out in Burbank, California,  is unique in many ways. The chief  point of interest is the fact that it is  driven by a huge propeller, itself of  novel design,-- which is operated by a  26 horse-power gas engine. The car  is no mere toy model, but a fifty-foot  structure of steel and aluminum, which  '4has a carrying capacity of 56 passengers. It is built in a torpedo shape,  -and while the photograph shows the  uncovered ribs, the finished car will  Le covered with a light, flexible covering, with celluloid windows. In addition to the propeller in, the rear, another will be placed in the front of the  car, doubling its power, and acting as  an auxiliary in case of break-down.  The short length of overhead track,  about a quarter of a mile, has made it  impossible to test the new device for  speed, but it operates perfectly, show--  ing that it is no mere theoretical invention. Forty people have been carried  with ease at one time.  The six-foot propeller is of great interest, being a radical departure from  Si  accepted forms.    It will be noted that  the two blades are like enormous fans,  being formed of sheet metal on ribs of  . steel tubing. A number of ingenious  devices, tilting planes to lighten the  ear while in motion, apparatus for raising and lowering the car at stations,  etc., have been designed to perfect this  new vehicle.  built'on honor and  prudence. We buy  the best and thus  please our many  patrons.  RECENT AEROPLANE ACCIDENTS.  During the month of September  there have been many accidents. In  several of these the aeroplane has  caught fire in the air, and the aviator  has been burned to death or killed by  the fall. One such accident occurred  in^France-on-September-^nd,- another  in Spain two days later, and the third,  in which two men were killed, happened in Germany on the 7th tilt.  Maron, the French pilot of the Savary  biplane, was the first Victim of this  type of accident. He experimentnupj  type of accident. He experienced a  bad fall on'.the 2nd ult.- His machine  caught/fire, and when it struck the  ground, he was incinerated under the  debris. Lieut, de. Grailly, of the  French army, also fell and was burned  to death on the 2nd inst., owing, it is  Although reciprocity has been defeated the matter is far from settled,  especially in regard to pulp and paper.  There seems to be considerable' misunderstanding on this side of the line  and, if one can judge from published  reports, on the American side of the  line, regarding the admission of pulpwood free of duty to the United States.  On this side of the line it is not generally understood that the wood pulp  and print, paper clause now in operation ,was separated from the reciprocity, agreement. It went into operation in July and provides that the duty  on pulp and paper products in Canada,  when free' from export restrictions,  shall be admitted to the United States  free of duty. This does not apply to  wood cut from crown lands on which  there are. restrictions. This discrim  ination between wood cut oh private  lands and wood cut on crown lands is  likely to cause considerable trouble to  American customs officers. They, will  likely insist on sworn statements as  to the source from which the wood  was obtained.  One of the most direct effects of the  defeat of reciprocity is the movement  by American pulp and paper men to  establish mills in Canada. Practically  all the large American paper manufac  turers are showing a fresh interest in  Canadian pulp areas and are either  acquiring limits, enlarging their present mills, or are about to erect mills.  The Berlin Mills Company; of Berlin, N. H., is arranging to build a large  paper mill at Three Rivers, where 700  workmen will-be employed.

Nor was the award based on sentiment  or granted- merely as an exemplary  matter. ��������� The tree alive had been a  thing of.growing value; cut down, the  greater value to .which it. might in  time have attained was - forestalled.  Consequently the measure of damage  sustained in its present loss was not  complete, but partial. It may be that  to estimate its possible later value  would entail a draft on the imagination as to definite amount, but the  doctrine laid down by the court was  sound. ���������  Millinery and Fancy Goods  SATURDAY SPECIES, Nov. 4  :     Trimmed Hats, $6.50 to $8^00 for $4.25  Children, s Hats, $L50 to $2.00 for 85c        ���������  Aviator Caps at        - ���������;    - 7: '-''������������������    75c  MISS CURLEi  2636 MAIN STREET  VANCOUVER    ���������'.-':       - B.

The production of shingles increases  steadily in Canada, and in a bulletin  to be published by the Forestry Branch  of the Department of the Interior this  is  shown  together with  the  relative  importance, of the provinces for 1910.  Compared with the Canadian lumber  cut,    the    entire    shingle    industry  amounted  to  less  than  the  value  of  each of the five most important species  *���������sprifce, white pine, douglas.fir, hemlock and cedar���������during 1910.   Consid  ere'd separately, the shingle production  assumes considerable importance especially iri British Columbia.   This province is far in advance of the eastern  provinces as a shingle producer and  made  up  approximately  half  of  the  Canadian   1910   production  of  nearly  two billion shingles worth over three  and a half million dollars.   Over one-  qiiarterof the shingle^ were manufactured in Quebec, where the five hundred and thirty-nine million pieces reported* were an increase of sixty per  cent, over the 1909 .amount.    Ontario  and New Brunswick produced nearly  equal amounts in 1910, one-tenth of the  Canadian, production being from each  of these provinces.    Ninety-eight per  cent, of the total production was in the  above four  provinces, although shingles  are made in every province of  the Dominion.    Nova Scotia,  Saskatchewan, Prince Edward Island, Alberta  and Manitoba together produced two  per cent, of the total.    The average  price of shingles in 1910 was $1.80 per  thousand, the values    ranging    from  $1.51 for shingles in Nova Scotia to  $2.25 in Saskatchewan.

This is not'only an economic waste hut is revolting to the senses of all true sportsmen or civilized  citizens- It is contrary to all sense of what is  right to permit the wholesale slaughter of the  female element in any game or animal either for  sport or utility and as stated'will inevitably result  in destroying the supply. Last year the Pacific  "Whaling Company caught 1,500 whales, of which  about 1.000 were cow whales. It is no wonder  that this company's stock is not for sale and that  they can pay such good dividends.  A gentleman from the West Coast of Vancouver  Island told the writer of a practice by some engaged in the business which is -particularly.revolting. Very frequently a small calf whale can  b"e"eanght easily "and some "whalers "will" shoofa-  harpoon'through its tail and make the rope fast,-  thus holding the poor thing captive and then stand  by waiting for the return' of the cow whale, or  mother to release it's young, Avhen the unfeeling  whetches will attack her and tOAV her carcass off  to the station. Such a practice is inhuman and unworthy of a "man."  It is certain that something must be done to protect this industry and stop the slaughter of the  "cow whale."

Rickey, the water power* expert and  engineer let it become known that he  had fallen asleep on one of the historic banks of the good old St. Lawrence arid dreamed a < ream, other  engineers smiled at him indulgently  and told him to wake up. The dream  was, so stupendous that, at first telling," it seemed impracticable/  Since then the dream has been  worked into'blue prints and maps, figures and reports, until today government engineers of both Canada and  the United States freely, admit that  Mr. Rickey and his associates have  evolved one of the most wonderful���������  if not the most wonderful���������rpower producing propositions in Ihe world.  1(8 a word, it is proposed to harness  the Long Sault Rapids, turning their  thousands of -wild horses into beasts  of burden for the people who live along  their shores. As the St. Lawrence at  this point is an international stream  the International Waterways Commission have jurisdiction over it and must  first approve^ of these power development plans before actual development  may be commenced. !  When the proposition was first  placed before the public some three or  four years ago now, ^considerable opposition developed on tie Canadian  side, more from sentimentality than  anything else. Since then tlie public  has had an opportunity to study the  plans and it is safe to say that today  there is "not a town or village between  Cornwall and Lake Ontario that, is not  favorably disposed to the idea. The  development of this, enormous amount  of water power, will mean the bringing to life of new industries. New  industries will mean new towns and  jnore prosperity to the old ones. Even  the farmers are talking of harvesting  their crops by "electricity when the  Long Sault is completed, but this, of  course, must remain .talk until, science  has advanced another step or two.  Cheap Living Phampion.  Montreal is at present entertaining  the national' champion in the art of  keeping the cost of living down in the  person of S. T. Farnsworth of Chicago. . According to the itemized report of the cost of living commission  at Indianapolis his expenses for a year  totaled only $82.24, a figure1 so low  as to entitle him to first- plate. Mr.  Farnsworth is not here to show how  it was done, however, but to advocate  a plan for the relief of farmers with  unsold ei'ops on their hands. When  Brazil succeeded in borrowing $70,000,-  000 to hold an enormous surplus of  coffee Farnsworth was heard from first  and ever since then when the limelight revealed him he, has been cheerfully advocating a clearing , house system by which unsold crops could be  available as cash. His plan is that  farmers shall convey to a "clearing  house bank'" their growing crops and  make, this credit at the bank subject  to check. "The financing of the cotton  crop in the States is to be accomplished in a manner similar to the one  Farnsworth so long has urged for the  relief of the general farmer from the  exactions of the middlemen and the  fluctuations of speculative markets.  Each cotton grower may deposit his  cotton in a warehouse and borrow on  his receipt until'he can sell his cotton  at fifteen cents per pound. Farns-  worth's-plan-goes-further in - making  possible the checking against values  of growing crops held.by a "clearing  house" bank, co-operative buying to  be done by a central concern on checks  of these same county banks.  Drastic Blue Law������.-  That Montreal, if the blue laws as  they actually stand on the statute  books at present were enforced, would  rnake^ early New England. Sundays  seem.exciting is one -surprising TeBult  of the effort now going on to determine whether flying is to be classified  as a sport, a pastime or a scientific  demonstration. A merry war has been  raging- over this point since the  promoters of a recent flying meet  held competitions for prizes on Sundays and charged admissions. The  church forces immediately began a  crusade to prevent such flights. The  law specifically prohibits on Sunday  public games or contests to which an  admission is charged and on this point  the clergy took their stand. The promoters pointed out that the law was  passed in 1883 when flying was unknown, and naturally says nothing concerning it. Moreover, they argue that  the exhibition is purely a scientific  and educational' demonstration and  therefore entirely legal. The matter  has not been yet decided, but the controversy has served to show that the  public in its ignorance of the laws  commits violations by the thousand  every Sunday. The law prohibits playing, and were.it rigidly enforced in  this respect it would probably terminate not only the recreation of  youngsters in the front yards,, nursery  or barns, but also deprive their seniors of Sunday^ golf, tennis aud other  games, giving this city Sundays so  blue as to make indigo seem pale in  comparison. 7  ���������Press Service Bureau.

ROSS,    146  and just after "Oom Paul" had flung  insulting ultimatum in the teeth of the  British   government,   the'    shire  Fusiliers stationed at Junglepore were  to a man utterly "fed up" as they  themselves termed it, with the dull  dreary monotonous routine of everyday barrack life in India and the mechanical movements of the sleepy  punkah-wallahs as they wafted the hot  air about the bungalows, when one day  the startling news arrived that the  regiment had received orders to hold  themselves in readiness to" proceed to  Bombay at an early date in order to  embark for South Africa in the hired  transport "Kohi-noor." A wild cheer  went up when the news spread, and  the men, who only a few moments  previous, had been "grousing" their  loudest at the enforced idleness, suddenly forgot their, miseries and bustled about working themselves into a  pitch of excitement at the prospect of  going on active service with the old  "Pulton." A few of the older soldiers  who had been on active service before  were about the only ones who kept  their heads and although secretly re  joicing went about their work with a  careless nonchalent air as if active  service were an everyday occurrence.  Amongst the . latter was "Corporal  O'Neill,-' or as he was more familiarly  known, "Bruiser O'Neill," owing to  his hard hitting abilities to which  many of the regiment could testify by  experience. He had seen some tips  and downs in the old regiment, and although a bit of a martinet on parade  was  voted   "all   teek"   by  Calls Answered Day or Night  JPHONE Fairmont W98  Wm. Soott & Go.

"Bruiser's" pet grievance, on which he sometimes expatiated, was the- dearth of promotion. After serving fifteen years he was still  only a corporal, and when young soldiers with only three or four years'  service were sent out from the old  country and took precedence of him  owing to seniority of promotion he was  wont to exclaim "Why the service  is going to the dogs." But now all  this was forgotten and although he  did not betray his feelings by any  outward sign he was none the less secretly gratified and as eager for a  rub at the "Boers" as the last joirted  "rookie." The regiment, which was  ^heartily liked, both officers and men,  had a grand send off from Junklepore,  and as they marched jauntily to the  railway sjtation headed by the regimental' band of their Comrade Corps  who had turned out to play them away,  every man looked in the pink of condition. After all the usual bustle and  excitement of entraining had been  gone through and the train at last oh  the move to the accompaniment of  ringing cheers and the waiving of  handkerchiefs, the old familiar  strains of "Auld ang Syne" was played  and more than one eye grew moist  and more than one throat too choked j  for utterance, for many of the men'  were leaving behind all they held,  dear, and after all soldiers are but human, and the bravest often the most  tender-hearted.  The tiresome journey down country  i nthe closely packed carriages, and  the varied experiences on boardship  on- the way-J;o-the-"Cape"-were-event-  ually'gone through satisfactorily and  the    shire  Fusiliers  with  the  other details landed at Durban in the  best of health and spirits.    No time  halt, for with his keen practiced eyes  he had taken the wholg situation in at  a glance. A party of mounted Boers  had suddenly and without warning, appeared right in their path. The corporal knew that this meant surrender  or death, but never a muscle of his  hard rugged face moved as he curtly  remarked to, his young companion,  "Boers, mate���������strikes me we've got  our work cut out for us." Silently and  quickly he loosened the straps of his  bandolier, telling the youngster to do  likewise, then throwing themselves  flat on the veldt and taking advantage  of the scanty cover, together they  waited.. The corporal's instructions to  his young companion were crisp and  concise���������"Reserve your fire nipper till  I give the word, mark, your man, aim  steady and true and blaze.away."  The Boers at ���������first sight of the pair  had halted .arid being ignorant of the  exact number, of their opponents and  much to artful to be led into a trap,  deemed it best to reconnoitre. Creeping from rock to rock they stealthily  worked their way nearer and nearer  keeping up a sharp M^ause'r fire from  time to time, which luckily did our  two friends no harm, most of the bullets whizzing harmlessly, overhead, or  flattening themselves ' on the rocks  around. One bullet, :it is true, did find  its billet in the corporal's helmet where  he had placed it on the rock above  him, but the steady old veteran's, "ee"  Met ford" rang out simultaneously and  he had the grim satisfaction, of.seeing  a Boer throw up his arms and fall forward. "That's a bull's eye,' I fancy,"  he cooly remarked to his young companion who was eagerly awaiting the  order to commence firing, "One less at  any Tate."  The Boers were now only about a  couple of hundred' yards away, when  one Nof them sprang on his horse and  galloped towards the concealed pair  with the evident intention of coming  to closer quarters and' putting an .end  to the fight. A sharp report, a cry  of pain and a riderless horse is galloping straight to ^rhere the pair are  lying concealed.' As the animal with  eyes dilated with fear drew rapidly  near the-corporal's resolve was taken  andvjust as the animal was galloping  madly past he sprang up and with a  grip Of steel brought him to a standstill. In a few terse words he urged  the lad to mount telling him to ride  hard and bring ^reinforcements if he  could, but .the youngster with innate  pluck refused to stir until the corporal put an end to all controversy by  picRing him up as if he were a baby  and flinging him into the saddle, exclaimed: "Up \Mth you; none of your  old buck or I'll punch your head;. I'll  run this show���������promotion's been a bit  slow and this is'my chance to win it"���������  and as the bullets came sputtering  around he pricked the horse with his  bayonet which had the effect of start-  i ing the animal off at a mad gallop.  Then with a softened face he turned  with a grim determination to sell his  life .dearly, with never a thought of  hoisting the emblem of surrender  ��������� which he knew had been done under  less pardonable circumstances. Staunch_  j and true to the core the very mention  of surrender would have been met by  him with contempt and scorn.

The African day was night spent? as  choking with thirst and with aching  limbs, two of the .......shire Fusiliers  across the veldt were tramping, they  had been out on a foraging expedition and had lost their way, and now  with weary stumbling steps were plodding back, ever keeping a sharp lookout for a glimpse of their comrades'  camping ground. The one was Corporal O'Neill, the other Private Desmond, a bdue-eyed curly headed  youngster, with a face as fresh as the  pure Irish air could make it. They  had been journeying on from early  morning and now the tired lad walked  all forlorn with many a halt and stumble. As the pair with dogged pluck  struggled oh the darkening sky warned  them that night was rapidly approaching, never a word passed between the  two, both seemingly thinking that this  was no time for wasting breath in  needless speech. Suddenly, and with  a muttered exclamation that was not  bit between his teeth, the young re  cruit saw the corporal stretched out  on the veldt and heard the sharp ring  of the "ee Metford,"'; lAit as he gazed,  already the Boers were drawing closer  anid closer until an intervening kopje  hid them from view.  = Late that night a squadron of Irish  Lancers galloping hard in the pale  mqonH,-'t ��������� came on the soenc of that  last stern fight and there they found  the corporal lying���������silent and grim on  the blood-stained veldt. Silently and  reverently they each uncovered their  heads and when the lad who had  brought back relief realized that he  had arrived only too late to save his  brave old companion he broke down  utterly. ���������  The gallant old corporal's last remains were interred with full military  honors, and now whenever the tale is  told they speak of his death and devotion and say that perhaps a hidden  meaning lay in the words he used, and  that the night when his rough, bold  spirit passed away.was the night that  he won "promotion."

Numerous applications,  have already been made for the use  of the old building, but it is necessary  that this sliould first be removed farther away from the new hall and extensively repaired before any use can  be made of it. Ultimately it is proposed to use tbe building for a municipal storage depot; but temporarily  a portion of it will probably be loaned  to the school board as an overflow  schoolroom. The change in the surroundings of Saturday's meeting was  very favorably commented upon, the  npw council chamber being situated on  the seventh floor of the new hall and  is large, airy and well lighted, presenting a complete contrast to the dingy,  dilapidated quarters now abandoned.
