Premier McBrlde stated to a Colonist 
representative last evening tha.t Ih view 
of the extensive railway guarantees his 
government was undertaking and the im- 
portance of the. policies generally to 
the country It was considered only right 
that the people should be consulted. 

The campaign will be a short one. 
Premier McBrlde and his ministtrs will 
in the course of the next four months 
tour the province, speaking at different 
points. The Premier will be accompan- 
ied by the Hon. W. J. Bowser and it is 
anticipr.ietltnat leaving n^-T^i winek lis 
will be absent from the capital for up^ 
wards of two weeks. The other mlnis-, while speaking in t veral 

roristituencies, will also len i i stance- 
Im the various governmient candidates. 
As far as can be learned all the mem- in the last house, with the excep- 
tion of Mr. .T. Hawlhornttiwaite, who sat 
for Nanaimo, will offer themselves for 
rf-nmnUialion. It is also Stated that op- 
position will be offered in every con- 
Btitupncy. The Liberal party is hold- 
ing a plovlncUl convention in Vancou- 
ver tom6rrow evening at which the part 
to be played in the coming election will 
be decided upon. Mr. John Oliver, the 
leader of the party, will be placed In 
nomination for the Delta riding as will 
Mr. Brewster in the Albernl constltu- 

cy. Who are the likely Liberal candi- 

tes In Vancouver or Victoria are not 

T known. 

Ml Hawthornthwalte's decision to 

ve i.iwiiiu:ttii>ii.rty politics is ^«c ^'^■ 

la private Interests which reau it" top 
much time to allow him to undertake 
[i.uiiamentary work. 

Passage of Slsty-two BUls 

After passing 62 bills, some of which 
must have an Important bearing on the 
history -ot British Columbia withli the 
next few years, the third sesalb.i 6£ the 
12th parliament of the province was 
formally prorogued yesterday afternoon. 
In the corridors while waiting for the 
lieutenant-governor to come down, the 
members chatted sociably, the principal 
theme being the coming election und Its 
probable outcome. Nearly all express- 
ed their intention of being back next 
-ession if possible, with the e>c=it>tlon 
1. 1 Mr. J. H. Hawthornihwaite, of Na- 
na I mo. The Socialist leader had 
doubts whether he would run again,

■ luesls to do so. He stated that i-c had 
no personHl .leslre to remain in politics

NANAIMO, B.- C. Feb. 27.— Further 
details of tlic motor car accident which 
occurred near the Quarter Way House 
last night, and which cost Chauffeur 
Frank Stubb.s his life and injury to 
others, make it appear that at the 
time of the accident the car was 
travelling at a rate estimated .at 60 
ini!«is >«.ti iiour. •\pproachlriK the scene 
df the accident the road slopes down- 
wards, then takes a curving direction, 
and according to the account of Mr. 
Andrews, Mr. Stubbs was unaware of 
this and thought the road ran straight. 
The car carried only one lamp, and 
that on the left, thus casting an ob- 
lique gleam on the roadside, the other 
light having becii lost on the out- 
ward Journey. In consequonee, the 
side of the road where the c'at.Tstrnphc 
happened was In darkness. 

When tile motor car ran into tho 
ditch, Mr. vStubbs kept full .speed on in 
the belief thrtt the car could be turned 
again into the road. There was no 
time to apply the brake, and in a 
moment the car cut throuifb n troe 
stump and dashed against le 

which was thrown down, the imi.Mct 
hurling the car with its occupants 2.i 
feet and brlnglny it up in a transverse

The excitement of the populace 
against the Canadian company whicn 
runs the street cars was very great 
throughout the evening. Armed police- 
men were attacked by the mob and 
forced to tak< refuge In stores. Tlie

Some shooting followed by the police

OTTAWA, Feb. 27. — Tho island of Ja- 
maica is likely tb prove a thorn in the 
glrle of the advocates of a wide recl- 
prcclty pact betW'een Canada, and the 
British West Indies. According to cable 
advices, Jamaica has decided not to 
send a delegate to the reciprocity con- 
ference here. This decision is based, it 
Is declared, on tho belief of the Ja- 
maican authorities that the United 
States is the colony's natural market, 
and that any attempt in the direction of 
reciprocal trade with Canada would In- 
cur the displeasure of America. 

resolution was expanded by incorporat- 
ing in It a full description of the new 
boundaries, which the premier did not 
regard aa ntcessary, but saw no objec- 
tion in It. The discussion turned upon 
financial terms, the Liberals showing 
much Ill-will to Manitoba. 

Premier Borden moved the resolution 
at 3..10 o'clock. The speaker left the 
chair and 'the Premier made his state- 
ment In committee. It was purely an 
-exposition of the I'inanclal terms, giv- 
en in much detail. Manitoba, he said, 
will receive Jl, 349, 315 yearly, an in- 
crease of $515,907 over thfc' present sum. 
'11,, .. I 1. .na-.s amount to $2,178,618. 
and liiu swamp lands are estlmatsd at 
8,200,000 acres. 

Sir Wilfrid's Objections 
Sir Wilfrid I.auriir said iliat he did 
not Intend On this r>cca.M!on, to advert 
to anything of a controversial nature, as 
by pi;eferred to. elucida>ta the financial 
terms. He went on to contend that there 
was no reason for conceding arrears. He 
could not agree that there was a claim 
on Manitoba's part. He would ask Mr. 
r.> to. gly« his reason for the terms 
le resolution. This did not propose 
to give Manitoba enougli money to carry 
on, the government 'in the added terri- 
tory, but was a new financial term alto- 
gethep. Manitoba, afttr being for 40 
years a member of the confederation, 
was to bo treated as a now province. 
There was no justification for this. 

Mr. White replied, arguing that th© 
purpose was to give Manitoba equal 
treatment with Saskatchewan and Al- 
berta, and to give that province ample 
Justice. In Sir Wilfrid's speech, the 
statesman had been lost in the lawyer. 
Mr, White went on to explain and ' de- 
fend the financial 'terms. 

Mr. Pugsley attacked the arrangement 
on the ground that the debt allowance 
was unfair to the other provinces. Ho 
declared that .these lands did not be- 
long to the hewer provinces, the older 
provinces having bought them. As to 
Quebec, he contended that the 
addition of Ungava made it necessary 
to limit the arta of Quebec which was 
to govern the unit of representation, to 
the portion recognized at confederation. 
Mr. White replied, and Mr. Oliver then 

At the conclusion of Mr. Oliver's 

rsjieect! Mi'. Bordei. »«.i<1 that .".w .'.«,v« not 

forgotten his promise as to the restora- 
tion of the public domain to the prov- 
inces. Tliey would first put Manitoba 
on a footing of equality and would then 
proceed to restore tho public domain to 
all three. Ho also agrted that the case 
of the Maritime provinces required ad- 

The resolution was then passed. 

Ontario's Share 

Premier Bord*n then introduced the 
bill. In this connection he p'.aced be- 
fore the house an order-ln-councU pro- 
viding access for a government railway 
of Ontario to a poit on Hudson Bay 
by the following arrangement: 

(1) A live-mile utrlp, to be within 50 
miles of the coast, from the provincial 
boundary to Port Nelson, to be trans- 
ferred to Ontario. Manitoba, will exer- 
cise leglHlatlve jurisdiction and Ontario 
will own the land. 

(2) At Port Nelson Ontario Is to get 
on the east side of the river and along 
the shore of the bay. tho waterfront 
10 miles long and a ha'lf-mlle wide. 
That is to be for terminal factl1tl«8.

earned for him Hie appreciation of 
everyone who had the pleasure of work-

that one of the most valuable works of

tt report he has Just "i . .^- I me as a 
result of his visit. It n a source 

of much gratification indeed to know 
with what heartiness the member^ for 
Cowlchan was greeted as the 
representative of tli« province of 
British Columbia. It seems to 
me that a,: recognition w,i« given 
that must at once place ua under 
deep obligation to our friends and neigh- 
bors of the city of Tacoma, one that will 
leave a lasting Impression, and will re- 
mind us from time to time, whenever 
the opportunity may occur, that here Is 
a del. I we must not spare ourselves In

bo no dqubt of the ii.- iruuc.^.s of his re-

from some of the other states, and It 
must augur well for the social as well 
aa for the commercial condicons exist- 
ing between our neighbors and us, tha-t 
we as Canadians invited to take part 
in a gathering of thia kind, have re- 
ceived through -the ti^eney of Mr, Jlay- 
ward such attentions as these. After 
all it goes to show that while there Is 
a boundary betwe^ us, .and while from 
the nature of things, the British empire 
and the United States of America, must 
alwavs stand out as two distinct and 
separate countries, there 1« at the same

Mr. Brewster reminded the premier 
that he had on the order paper some

'he beglsUitiire has Tjeen dissolved 
and the new election will be held on 
ths 28th of March, nominations being 
made on the 12th. As this announce- 
jTient has been expected ever since the 
f^gfhhinff'or tile -year, ix v^Ht^£K!Ca«jOTV- 

The House which has Just gone cut of 

Existence has sat three times. It had 

the right 'to a fourth session, but In 

view of the extensive -programme which 

has been proposed by the government 

and received regislatWi~»a.ficn6Tir-aTit5^ 
also m view of the changing character 
of thcclectorate by th*. addiUpn of new^ 
immcs to the voters' list, it has been 
deemed advisable not to~permlt It to 
last its full term. The practice of hav- 
ing more frequent dissolutions than the 
law calls for is rapidly gaining favor 
in the i:nlted Kingdom as well as In 
Canada. ^ 

Tlip previous election was Iield after 
Mic annbuuccmont of an extensive policy 
of railway construction, and the plan 
thus outlined by the government re- 
ceived a very rcmarl^ablc endorsement. 
Tiiat policy was t-anu-a forward 
through its first stage at the .session 
following the election. It was advanced 
1:0 the. second stage during the^ session. 
Nvh^U^ has just: iibs^d, and it is "very 
proper that the electorate shall have 
(lie opportunity of *>xrresslnK their ap- 
proval or disapproval, as they may see 
nt, at the earliest possible day. Their 
.ilLcussion cannot fall to have a very 
uportant Influence upon the course of 
::,e government in this regard here- 
al'ter. --..— .-.--. 

Tiic exDenditures provided for by the 
nipropriations Just made by the House 
,e unprecedented In magnitude in thi-s 
rovince. The gov#rnm.-nt has ihougl.t 
::. well to give the electorate en oppor- 
tunity of expressing itself as to this 
poLicy of large outlay in works of im- 
provement 'before the expenditure has 
nt--tt.«Hy been wade." Opponents of tho 
govonimeiit certainly cannot complain 

t,> a ^^ulllclcnt number of the elector- 

that the present administration is not 

to be entrusts.) with this great^respon- 

sibility a new administration will be 

,Xormed of which they whl have control. 

J That the forthcorting election will re- 

"sult in the return or the government to 

power sterns to be a foregone conclu- 

diity resting upon him as the chief law 
offleer of the Crown. Even hU political 
opponent* muet concede that he filled hU 
arduouB poBltlon with an Intelligent ap- 
preciation of ihlB varied BublMla. unflas- 
glng Industry, great profesalOnal ability 
and excellent good humor. We think that 
to say this la only fair to a minister, 
whose work is of a class which the 
public at \9TKf have not many oppor- 
tunities of properly estimating. 

Mr. McBrlde comes out of the session 
more strongly entrenched in the conftd- 
ewce of his supporters in the House aiid 
the public generally than ever before. 
Hf has shown his recognition of the 
nefds of British Columbia for a stronK 
and progresnive policy, and he has had 
thi- courage lo give a lead which will be 
productive of resuHh of tlie greatest 
vahif. It lias been given to no premier 
in Canada to entT nfllof with a deph.^ied 
public treasury, uiul a well-nigh ex- 
hausted i.ulillc credit, and within less 
than nliu. years find him.self in a posLtlon 
to undertake and pay .fo»'; without bor- 
rowing, the greatest aystein of i^iibrio

tract from the ability of his colleagues 
to say that hlB is the master mind of 
the most able and progressive govern- 
ment British Columbia has ever had. 
-On e of thO ' in oii t i V a Tt ia blft f e at Breg .„of 

the past session was the Budget Speech, 

new Union Sank bulldlns and that un- 
der construction for Messra. Elliott. 
MdLean & Shandley and Messrs. Miic- 
Pberson and Kullerton Brothers wlU 
completely alter the appearance of 
the business centre, and will make the 
one-storey buildings adloinliig them 
look very mean an<l insignificant. 
There waa a very general hope among 
the cltiEens that when the Canadian 
rrclflc Telegraphs moved out of the 
liltle structure on the corner ol Gov- 
ernment street and Trounce -VUey. Mr. 
William Wilson, the owner of the 
premises, would follow the example of 
his fellow pioneers and .place upon 
what is undoubtedly one of the best 
business sites In the city a structure 
equal at least to any other in the 
vicinity. -Many citizens have expressed 
regret at what is understood to be 
Mr. Wilson's intt'ntion to leave tho 
structure as It is. Pot-sibly the Col- 
onist has no right to offer siigge.^tons 
to any one as to what he shall do with 
his pronerty. but there arc times when 
it seems a fluty to &<y so. We are

slon. We know the proverbial uncer- 
tainty of elections, nn.l shall not In- 
dulge in any prophecy; but it may be 
said without any doubt that at present 
there does not appear to be more than 
one constituency in the' province in 
which the opposition Uns even a Sght- 
ing chance. 


The Legislature was prorogued yes- 
terday after an -an-ventful session, and 
yet one that was marked by the pas- 
sage of much very important legislation 
and the appropriation of the largest 
Fum of money over voted out of revenue 
l.y any province in Canada. The session 
was uneventful only because of the lack 
of any very acute discussion, a condition 
of things inevitable in a House where 
th<- Opposition was represented by one 
Liberal and two Socialists, and one of 
•he latter rffrrdnctl from any very active 
participation in its wori<. 

Referring e.-jpeclally to ihe seHBlon. 
which has Just closed, it was one timt 
will havf. an important bearing upon the 
future of the province. The railway 
legislation is a part of a broad plan of 
development, which we venture to think 
will be carried on boldly in the future. 
The Forest Act Is of Itself sufflcienlly 
Important to characterize the session as 
one of great future Influence. The 
aulhorly,atlon of the beginning of work 

a compilation of facts and figures bear- 
ing upon the present cbndltlon ana 
future prospects of the proviuco tliat 
has never been surpassed. Mr. Ellison, 
Minister of Finance and Agriculture, la 
a gentleman who Is able to bring to bear 
upon the diverse duties devolving upon 
him a discriminating mind, a thorough 
knowledge of the province, strong, prac- 
tical common sense and a progressive 
spirit. His work has not boon spec- 
tacular, but In the years to come British 
Columbia will feel its beneficial effects. 
As wo sald'V^,former occasion Dr. 
young, as MinistS^-of liducalion, has 
had placed within his reach an enviable 
opportunity, and It is only fair to say 
thait he has be^n largely mstruoi«utaa 
in crcaUng It. To be entrusted with the 
duty of laying the foundation of a great 
provincial University is an' honorable; 
task such as few. men have been called 
upon to perform. Whenever occasion 
requires Dr. Young to deal with this 
grt^at work in a public speech he docs 
so in auch a broad, illuminating manner 
as to inspire public tjonfidence in the 
.highest degree. No one Questions his 
fitness for his monumental task. 

Mr. Ross made a high place for him- 
self by his speech introducing the For' •(- 
Act. and ho added to the reputation lUus 
won by his treatment of the details of 
this very important measure. Equally 
couiteous. to critics and friends, ready 
t) accept sUgseAUOns that commended 
thcmsel""" +" bim. and able to give good 
reasons for all his proposals. Mr. Ross 
hafr greafly added to his reputation as a 
public man during, the last session. 

Mr. Taylor is a minister who must be 
Judged by his works rather than by hi-" 
words. The former are many; the latter 
are tew. Tne prtspcti ■»>•■"■» "•■ — -- t-- 
ga.mme for the Public Works depart- 
ment, involving the great sum of eight 
millions of dollars, was a task calling 
for a thorough knowledge of the condi- 
tions of the province, a compreliensive 
grasp of a great subject and a Just sense 
of proportion. He Is making a high 
r^^iiinLinn fur himself. ,^^B^nB^ 
Of the two gentlemen, ujiiStr^WTOlm'nTe- 
volved the task of criticism, it is right 
that a few words should be said, and it 
la a pleasure to be able to say that they 
discharged their task very well jlndc-ed. 
Both of them added to tlie number of 
their personal friends during the ses- 
sion, and both gained in reputation as 
fair-minded critics.

whether one apartment house in the 
city would pay. Now few people Ivnow

sity of providing so mtich office room

wo seen is nothing to what_ we 
shall see in the very near future, of 
which we hope the owners of one- 
storey business houses will take due 
notice and govern tV nselves accord-

t:EKi>iN, :•■'■■ -"•■ I'.cnnaay, w-Js^rp 
interest in track and field sports, 
though of recent origin, ix'gins to vie 
with that in the V'nited Wtates and 
Great Britain, is preparing to nuike a 
formldnble bid for suprenwicy at the 
Olympic games in KtoidOiolm this year. 

At :i meeting of tlic GeriTum IiTipcrial 
CoiTiniitlee for the games, uiidcr the 
■ presidency of Victor von J.'i)dbrelaky, 
lormer minister of agriciiltiire, it was 
decided to seiul a team of about 1<>0 
men to the giune!«,. paying their tran.s- 
tiortatlon, board and other oxi>en.«ps. 

As a lat^k of lo'i. 1 ,n rMiiuiinii:iiii>uo 
at isitpckhnlm is already becoming evi- 
dent. It is proposed t" charter a specl.Jl 
steamer CUr quarters for tlic atlilotes, 

K.ipenses for the Oerman team art> 
estimated at about fllO.noO. Of this It 
is hoped tiiat the government, 
which has already created a precedent 
by providing funds for the Oerinnn 
horsemen competing in the military 
and civilian riding rompetitinns, will 
).ay $12,000, the balance being met by 
private subscriptions. Tlie sum. 
though small compared with the JfiO,- 
nno raised in the Utiltcd States, will be 
sufficient, as the fare to Stockholm 
from Berlin is low. A special (rain will 
carry the e.spected crowd of tietman 

Trials to pick the Ccrmnn competi- 
tors will be held In l.clp/.ig during the 
AVhitsunthie holidays. :\5ay "Jn and 27. 
To spare the Marathon runners the 
strain of a f"" .Marathon course ho 
closei to the big race trials for thi.'^ 
event will be held about Miiy 1 over 
(1 (llatanee of only twenty- five kilo- 
metres, about sixteen and a half mi!«-s. 
(Jerntany ha.-< at least three men — Rati, 
a sprinter: Hraun. a lialf-miler, and 
Poehlman. a pole vaulter — who have 
sliown close to world's champion.shlii 
form, and a well -balanced lot of men 
for -pVucticnnv ah the events In the

Members of the United Brotherhood 
of Carpenters and Joiners Will have a

ploying members of the general' txecu- 
tivc board all the tiaue in union work 
itistead of duriiig il'e tiuarterly meeting 
as at prcsenl. A similar propo.^al was 
iindo by the Dss Moines convenl.ou 
in IHlO, but was defeated at referendum. 
The convention prip"»al was th i . when 
not attending board neetings the mem- 
bers ,01 tla(e boarii a'nould -tot a^.jjern.Tai 

organizers and receive the pay or organ- 
isers. The j)resent propo.sal is that in 
tlic Interim between board ineetings 
members of tlie board shall be "on the 
road settling disputes, and when not 
engaged In this work shall be under 
direct orders of the general president." 
W. I). Huber, prpsiden'.' of the union, 
in a statement to the niembersliip. has 
estimated that the additional e.Tpense 
of iiaving board members act as gen- 
eral organizers won 1. 1 be $22,500. 

The first case on record, so far as 
we know, of women workers Teoelvlng 
more wages than men for the same 
work, has occurred In West Australia. 
.V slate award has been given there for 
barmen and barmaids, flxing the monc.v 
wages of both at an equal figure, but 
the actual wages of barmaids are high- 
er, inasmuch a» the barmen's hours 
arc 56 a week, and the hours of the bar 
ladies only 48. The chairman of the 
ployed it would be a good thing.

Ite Malahat Indian Roserve: Appeal 
from the decision of the Commla.sioner 
of Lands refusing the application of 
il and' associates for a pre- 
,,rd to a portion of the 
above-mentioned property. Mr. : Gosnell 
and his associates pre-empted the prop- 
erty in question under the Land .\.ct, as 
unoccupied, uiircserved lands of the 
Crown. It has beon unoccupied and un- 
used by the Indians for a great many 
years, end therefore was supposed to 
have, reverted to the Crown, and no re- 
serve had been placed upon it by the 
Kovernment. The Commissioner 
the application, and tne applicants ap- 
pealed on the ground.* (1) that no order 
in council had been passed setting apart 
these Indian reserves aa required by 
section 80 of the Land Act. and conse- 
quently that this laud had never been 
removed from the operation Of the 
Land Act. which gives the public tbe

Hunter C. .J. B. C. was of oplttion 
that the apptal should be dismissed a.s 
there was no necessity for any specinc

cussions thnt have taken place In re- 
gard to It by several of the conventions 
that recently met under the Department 
of Agriculture, resolutions wore passed 
condemning any proposal to Import 
foreign song birds on the ground that 
they were destroyers of the fruit trees 
;ind harmful Influences against which 
the farmers would have to contend. 
Another light was shed on the uucstion 
the other evening by Mr. F. Kermode, 
curator of the provincial museum, In 
the course of an address on "the birds 
and mammals of the province." given 
before the Natural History society in 
the Friends Hall. 

Mr. Kermode atetcd that on« of the

branches of trees. It was not right to 
assume that they were there for the

the city will not consider, on the 
grounds that the contract for tUe sup-

In the protest of the Mount Tolmle

the other concern, the only other ten-

point of view, constitutes their main 
importance to the world at large, their 
soientifto character and the study of 
their life and habits are most absorb- 
ing, and with the apreading interest Ht'^Xi^f^, 
nature study, we can well afford to give 
them a share of our attention. From 
their high position in. the animal king- 
dom, it seems strange at first thought 
that we do not see. more of the mam- 
mafs in our woods €utd fields, it Is 
only the most common species that we 
are most familiar with, and though the 
country may be teeming with bird and 
Insect life, we are not likely, on an or- 
dinary ramble to see more of the mam- 
mals than a 'few squirrels, or a few 
small rodstits.*' Mr. KRrmode went on 
to explain that this fact was largely 
due to the lack of proper study. The 
more people know of their habits the 
more are they likely to see'. 

In conclusion he fired a shot at the 
sportsman. "The pleasure of seeing 
and studying a wild animal in life, far 
outraiiks the gratification of making a 
good shot and bagging my game, and I 
think that If the pleasure man feels 
In hunting was carefully analysed, it 
will be found, that besides being very 
close to nature. It rest."* largely In the 
contest Of sklU and craft between hun- 
ter and game and that the mere killing 
is anything but gratification." The ad- 
dress was suitably illustrated with 
lantern slldea depleting not only RnU 
mals la the museum, but animals and 
birds in their homes and retreats.

The company further protests' against 
the action of the city In not even open-

its tender, and alleges the council has 
act^d merely on hearsay evidence in 
awarding the contract to the Produc- 
ers Sand and Gravel company.

Alderman Stewart declared Mr. R, H. 
Thomson, the Seattle engineer, Imd 
condemned the gravel used at tli»- 
Smiths Hill reservoir, material sup- 
plied by the complainants. Further, 
t'lK- (imiiiiinK of material on the streets 
would prove a great nuisance,, and the 
Mount Tolmle material requires mort 
cement than is needed with washed 
sand. It was true the specifications 
did not call for washed material, but 
tbe latter was infinitely better. 

Alderman Gleason admitted that no- 
thing could be done now that the con- 
tract with the Producers' Sand and 
Gravel company has been signed; but 
if the other concern's -saiiiplea had not 
been examined and reported upon it 
was a, bad .policy to pursue and the 
company had not been given much 

Alderman Stewart declared the 
samples had been examined and were 
of fair quality; but he had visited the

The meeting was called to order by 
Capt. E. J. Gallop in the chair, and, 
after the enrolment of^ the names nnd 
the administration of the oath to those 
who desired to join, the election of 
officers was proceeded with, resulting

steamerf* Flamingo and Celestial Em- 
pire brought those craft to port yeoter- 
day morning: and berthed at the dockof 
the Canadian Fishing company at the 
/oot of Main street, each bringing a 
cargo of 100,000 pounds of halibut, 
caught off the northern coast of British 
Columbia. .\s they steamed into the 
harbor the vessels were so brine-soaked 
that they both had the appearance of 
having b*^ submerged in the ocean 
^ depths during 'the past few days. 

The two buals lUtd an unusually iong 
trip, having been away from port over 
three weeks, durlnfr which gales blow- 
ing ninety mlK-s an hour interfered 
considerably with their fishing cptra- 
tions. Returning down the coast they 
ran into a series of southwest squalls, 
each of which lasted for eight or ten 
hoiirs. Slow headwa.v was made buck- 
ing the heavy swells which occasional- 
ly turnetl up a brtaker, sweeping the 
craft with solid water. 

Keeping carefully in .light of t-u'li 
other the two boats, heavily loadt-d with 
fish, 'passed Into sholler below Triangle-

to thi! harbor, arriving this morning to

Th« evil of unruly behavior has in-

Is proposed to open disciplinary

who were interviewed stated that if 
they were allowed to use force* disci- 
pline could be maintained. There are 
defectives and degenerates in every

would undoubtedly have . been much 
larger than it was. Their back-check-

manner in which the Terminal defen'ce 
liroke up the timely rushes of the Cap- 
it:.^ls was phenomenal. 

The "speed boys" put up a hard fight, 
but they wore not able to get away as 
;i,ey have m the past. They appeared 
!) be fagged in the final period, and fell 
, iiul ovorskated repeatedly. But when 
all Is said and done, the homesters made 
a game light, and considering the fact 
iliat they were playing against odds, 
they played a good game. Towards the 
hitter part of the match, when Victoria 
was making every effort to ao.orc, and 
Vancouver was ir. > anxiously en- 

_ n vorinK. to inc : i elr lead, the 

playing became a trifle roush, imt oh

In the least from his work in the last 
I'ew games. Skinner l.'i a hard worker, 
and he did not slacken In the least last 
fight. Bobby Kowe was always in the 
«a,me, but was not able to work to ad- 
vantage. Lester Patrick and Walter 
Smalll put up their usual good defence 
in the first two periods, and broke up 
many hard rvmh^s. Bert Lindsay while 
not in his best form, was called upon to 
stop numerous shots, which he did In 
excellent style. F^or the vislorg. J'^rank 
Patrick was the star. He swept down 
tlyj Ice tlmo after time, after getting in 
some clever checking, and always made 
the local dfjfence work to their utmost.

a; neat rush, but. v 
was called twenty feet from i,.<= ..... 
couver nets, and the goal was disal- 
lowed. At this .stage of the game the 
boys in stripes woke up to the fact that 
they would have to go faster if tliey 
expected to make another cout^t, and fot 
several miniites they set a fast pace, 
and jjrossed hard. l-'rom the face-off 
after the offside In front of the visitor's 
net, Harris got the rubber and went 
down in one of the neatest Individual 
rushes of the game, scorftag the first 
In this period, in 12.17.

The featherweight champioii.s— who 
•were they? This tltlo ranks nock and 
neck with the ' the rins 

— the heavyw^-o -I" i- "->xer -who 
can wear the featherweight honors, the 
miniature diadem ot the fighting arenai 
can carry his bead as high as any 

Tlie title icads back into' the sixties. 

.\ host of those plgnny hercules they 
were that bared their cheats In the 
open air and fought fiercely for the 
king pin position of their class. 

Tommy Warren, of Los Angeles, was 
the ! these lltUe nuckle 

^iaAi V vpRt-niK^ki . iiin of - 

John L. Mulllvan, Warreu blew over 
the Rockies In '85 and by a series of 
.brilliant battles proved he was cham- 
pion of all the l'-2-pound fighters. 

To be sure there was Cal McCarthy 
of St. Louis, who claimed the honor 
from Warren after the latter had 
11 aspirants. biJt the flght- 
ii;« ...... u ...iS blending into glove con- 
tests, George Dixon soon swept Mc- 
Carthy into oblivion and the real glove 
featherweight champion had arrived. 
Dixon put the title on a solid pedestal. 
An ideal tighter of the weight, wide 
shoulders, a kno'!k.iu« punch in either 
hand and fearless, he defeated count- 
less opponents and made the feather- 
wpight champlonBhlD a world's affair. 

Dixon was the first featherweight 
to be presented with a world's cham- 
pionship diamond belt. We defeated 
two English champions of his class, 
Xunc Wallace and Fred .lohnson, In 
intfrtitttioiikl fights In London. Dixon, 
supreme among the 122-pound boxers, 
fell a vlcthTi of fighting out of his daso. 
Sent against lightweights and boxers 
pounds heavier than himself, he battered 
himself into a wreck, and was forced to 
surrender to Terry McGovt-rn after a 
championship of teh years. 

The greatest battle of the pii/.- rlni:, 
barring the old masterpieces, was the 
two-round fight of the Terrible Terry 
McGovern and Young Corbett, when the 
featherweight tltlt.,i»a#sed to Corbett. 

McGovern IukI beaten them all — Ped- 
lar Palmer. Raich ford. Harry Forbes, 
Dixon— slopped tliV caretr of Oscar 
Gardner, lind gone out of his class and 
whipped Frank Erne and .loe Ganw al- 
most with a punch. 

But Young Corbett handed it 'o I'-irry, 
a complete ktiockout, win n tlie betting 
was all on McGovern. 

'> Young Corbett, an feathcrweiBht 
champion was a puzzle. Corbett could 
never, nevt r make the weight. 12'J 
pound.i. and floundered about .-imong the 
llghtwelgljts until he was beaten. 

I'Yanklfi Nell, of San Francisco, next 
clalmtd the title, but he met defeat at 

ight limes carried off j 
-uo championship. His |

Surrounding Country, in 
which over 200,000 acres of 
Farm Land have been re- 
served and surveyed for Pre- 
emptors ONLY. 

For the past two years we 
have ptiblished a pamphlet in 
which is given all informa- 1 
tion aval la bl (5 about Fort 
George and Central British 

.\^^Jg|||ve continuously 
made public the outstanding 

That there is no prairie 
land in the Fort George Dis- 

That with the exception of 

small areas of open mead- 

fows, the land is covered with 

a growth of timber, some 

light and somxC heavy; 

That 50 per cent of the 
land is light soil, with sand 
and gravel ridges; 

That the main rivers, such 
as the Fraser, Nechaco, 
Stuart and Salmon, are 
mostly from 50 to 250 feet 
below the " . bench land 
through which they run; 

That there is an abundance 
of pure water in creeks, 
lakes and rivers; 

That the climate is suf>- 
perb; and 

That one acre of the good 
! land is worth as much as five 
acres in any other part of 
Western Canada. 

The truth is good enough 
abotit Fort George, and We 
are publishing this advertise- 
ment so that the intending 
settler and investor shall 
know the truth and not be 
misled- by exaggerated re- 
ports of the Fort George 
District, whether good or 

Fort George is the "Hub 
of B. C," and the centre of 
an empire rich in' natural re- 
sources — fruit and farm land, 
timber and mineral I4iid. 
You should know all about 
this vast new country.

_ Ihe Canadian Northern Railway 

The PAGIFIC'PROPERTIES LIMITED has purchased large holdings in the Town- 
ship of Port Mann from the Canadian Northern Railway. These properties will 


H fn fhp niihlir for the first time. 



T^r\T^ -r \/f \ TS.TTS.T has been before the public for the past two years and during that time the ^reat interests back of it have 
FOR 1 MAIN IM been perfecting their plans for its future. Not only has a large portion of the railway been constructed 
between Port Mann and Edmonton, but also the townsite itself has been cleaa^ed and laid out as a model city. Wharves have been built; a 
large hotel is under construction and other buildings have been started. 

.r^ 4 11.T 4 T^x 4 TVT TV Ti^T^ O^T TT7"0 IVT CX_jrM3C A definite statement has been made by the Vice-President 
CANADIAN JN UK 1 JrirLKiN OrlUr O of the C. N. R. that the coast terminal and repair shops will 
be located at Port Mann, and with the development of the mountain sections, will quickly enlarge until they rival the present ^hops at Winni- 
peg which employ nearly 3,000 hands and support a population of 15,000 people. 

^j^^.-.. ^^y jl" A rr<jr\^\J OC AAA Win^in ^^ «hort time I^ort Mann will have a population of 25,000 people, supported not only 
1 Ox U L>A 1 lUiN dOy\)\J\) by the pay roll of the C. N. U., but by other hirge industries, some of which have already se- 
cured desirable siles. Tbe future of this Western city can'only be limited by the development of Western Canada. Back of it lies the re- 
sources of the entire country, and in front is the ocean highway of commerce to the Orient, also to Eastern America and the Continent ot 
P^urope via the Panama Canal. 
THE HOLDINGS of the Pacific Properties, Ltd., offer you every facility for selecting the best that the townsite contains.

tomorrow from the OrK'iit. The hiff 
Ktcamer lett Yokohama on Keljruury 
16th, and is making a fast run. The 
liner is bringing: as i)art of her cargo 
SSO bales of raw silk, a big shipment 
of silk goods, and other jn-odiicta ot 
the Orient in lesser (tuantlty. Bhe has 
fifty first-cabin i)aHsen^ers from ports 
in the Far Kast bound for this 

Thi' steamer is expected to make tlie 
liassage from Yokohama in a little 
over thirteen da>s, which will doubt- 
less, as usual, be heralded from Seattle 
as the fastest time* made across the 
f'acific, although the schedule of the 
Empresses allows them a twelve day 
tri p. and the Empress of Tjppan eleven 
years ago made the irii) in 10 days 10 

The Mlnaesotn will ISreak all record J 
■ujith hor outward cargo. On _her Isi'i^C 
trip the steamer took 17,122 tons, 
mostly flour. The South China Morn- 
ing Post of Hongkong, speaking of the 
big imports of flour, says: 

The steamship Minnesota has just 

Wtiit ;i:ti tons of gen»ral uuiko lo

If the sacks, which; are tuo feet in

'•The question naturally arises, where 
is all of this flour going? A well- 
known Hongkong mercJiant says that 
much of the flour recently imported is 
intended for those ports in the Philip- 
pines wliich are not regularly visited 
by the large transpacific liners, as 
well as for Indo- China, Slam and the 
Straits Settlements. 

"In the course of a few weeks a 
million and a quarter bag.? of flour

Advices from Auckland report con- 
siderable damage to the Norwegian

recently from the North Pacific. _ The 
Hornelen lost part of her deckload 
(luring the vo> — were 

broken. Thei. t,'c tO'

Several other ve.ssels, well known 
here, are in the casualty lists. The 
I'rench bark Max, with which the 
County of Linlithsrow. which arrived 
here recently, had a race to Chili, is 
reported ashore. 

Advices to lK)na6ii rcpdrt the Max 
ashore at Point Monte, near Christo, 
Talcahuano. i Under da te of February 
17 the vessel was reported in a diffi- 
cult position and assistance was sent to 
her from Talcahuano. The Max is well 
known at this port and is best remem- 
liorcd for a recent race with the €hH- 
<an ship County of Linlithgow from 
the Sound to the West Coast. 

P.oth vessels left Tacoma in August 
lor Valparaiso. The County of I.4in- 
lithgow left August IS and arrived at 
A'alparaiso October 2G, after a passage 
of 69 days. The Linlithgow has since 
returned to the Sound and is loading 
lumber in British Columbia. 

The Kosmos liner .Salati.-?. whose t^^l"

feet of water in N'o. 4 hold. 

From San Juan, under date of Feb- 
rtiary 7. was reported the steamer 
Portland, now en route from Norfolk 
to San Francisco v,'ith coal. The Port- 
land put In at San Juan with disabled 
machinery. She repaired and proceed- 
ed three days later.

General Manager Bury Tells of 
Big Expenditures on Com-

JTorld," Feb. 14. 191 

J^flisKdBNiiWf ■■1! 

One completely equipped unIt"^Jnile 
mammoth new Coquitlam terminal 
scheme is to be constructed Dy the 
Canadian Pacific Railway during the 
coming spring and summer, according: 
to an announcement made today by 
Mr. George J. Bury, vice-president and 
general manager of the C. P. R.. who is 
in tlie city on an Inspection trip of im- 
provements that are contemplated In the 
West generally, and Vancouver and Co- 
quitlam In particular. 

The expenditure that is to be made 
this year alone In Coquitlam In the 
installation and erection of one unit of 
the company's terminal plant will 
amount to over $600,000. But that will 
1)0 only a start, Hr. Bury deulurefi.- Tnc 
entire big terminal scheme Is laid out in 
units, to be constructed as the increase 
of traffic demands. The first of these 
units, which is to be completed next 
fall, will comprise a round house, about 
25 miles or tracKs, car repair bmupb, 
paint shop, machine shop, temporary 
bunkhouse for the men, coal bunkers 
and such other minor buildings and 
cquipiucTit S.5 ars necos!>&ry *Gr the es- 
tablishment of terminal facilities on 
such s. lETgre ?fcalfl- 

Bventually there will be four or five 
UEits. and shout ninety-five miles of 
■ tracks at the company's Coquitlam ter- 
minals. But it has all been des!gi*»^d 
0.1 the unit principle, and the units will 
be added and the terminal facilities in- 
creased as the growth of commerce and 
traffic warrant it. Mr. Bury empha- 
sized the fact that in establishing these 
terminal facilities at Coquitlam the 
.- company '^was- planning not only for 
wonderftil growth and demands of Van- 
couver's world-wide commerce during 
the next few years, but even what the 
commerce may Increase to when the 
large proportion of the trade that Is 
expected to follow the opening of the 
Panama Canal is directed this way.

Westminster Junction is now a business district. The vast extent of 
the railway terminal zone — half a mile wide and more- than two miles 
long— dividing the Coquitlam Townsite into two pai-ts, makes a north 
side business centre inevitable, but don't let those ^acts^^^;, you from

I grant you that it will take time for this business section to develop, 
but if it were already developed I wouldn't be saying this and you 
wouldn't be reading it. 

Finally, I want to give you a little tip. The public has not yet heard 
a half of the great things that are in store for Coquitlam. If the public 
knew it all NOW we would not be raising prices, because we would have 
nothing left to raise. 

Later on remember that you h ^-I this tip ten days before the first price 
advance in First Division, but— here's another piece of advice — don't buy 
to speculate on the impending rise of 25 to 50 per cent, in prices— buy 
for the big values of the future. 

First Division prices are absurdly low. Compare them with Prince 
Rupert and Port Mann prices, and remember that Coquitlam bids fair 
to be the best town of the three. 

The advance we are soon to rhake is behind the market.. Lots are

This is in line with the policy we have had from the start — the policy 
of making Coquitlam real estate a good proposition for all. 

We believe that our astounding success is largely due to this policy.
