Prince Rupert Has
A Good Townsite
Mr. A. Brooksbank returned several upy* ago from Prince Rupwt mid
Iiai many-interesting things lo t>r»y
ot the new coast city. After a pleasant trip the steamer reached Prince
Rupert 44 hours put from Vancouver.
Mr. Brooksbank says the appearance af the city from the harbor is
somewhat disheartening as huge
boulders and rocks stand out so
prominently that one cannot see
anything else for looking at them
but they are all being quickly demolished hy dynamite and the latest inventions in machinery.
Prince Rupert can boast a splendid wharf, and what town there is
certainly looks very, busy and cn the
go. The business portion is now situated on the site to be used j lor tbe
railway depot, and Mr. Houston'.s
mineral elaims.
The isite of the city itself, lying
immediately above this, is ten aven-
u.-' deep and five or six miles long
aud comparatively level, and is now
mostly Surveyed out into lots. Then
are several miles ot roadways nnd
sidewalks laid out, and more beinp
done every day. The Westholmr,
Lumber Oo. have   the contract for.
this work, also thc erection of another wharf, of which Mr. Gilling-
ham, late of Ladysmith, is thc supervisor. It is tbeir intention to
erect a sawmill at an early date in
tho vicinity. \
Several miles of sewers are also
now laid down, so that immediately the townsite is sold it will be in
a good sanitary condition.
The scenery across the harbor is
superb, and as tbe town is somewhat elevated above the shore, a
splendid view of it can be obtained
almost  anywhere.
Dr. McNeill, late ol Ladysmith,
has been located there about a year
and is much pleased with his choice
of location.
The atmospheric conditions are
somewhat similar to those ot Vancouver, and although damper than
Vancouver Island is not very noticeable when one is busy.
At present over and above the
thousands of laborers that are employed on the railroad there are
about 900 people resident right in
Prince Rupert, and a great increase
an this is anticipated within the
next few months.
Afternoon Mail
Is Demanded
I  The Big
Same To-morrow
There are a couple of changes in
the local team for to-morrow. Brass
is placed inside left, Adam Is moved
tocentre, McKinlcy gets his place on
the halves and Strang will be
brought to his position in centre
half. The team is a good one and
the sport-loving public ofLadysmith
should see their favoritos come out
victorious to-morrow.
Nanaimo are playing the same
team which defeated us two weeks
ago and the game promises to bo a
clinker from start to finish. Nanaimo have five men out ol town and
are certainly at a great expense

lowing are the teams:
Backs—Rogers and McDowell.'
Halves—Wynne, Strang, McKinloy.
Forwards—McLeod, Brass, Adam-
McOuire and Granger.
Reserves—Warhurton, Crosier, Graham.

Forwards—Blundell, Cruickshanks,
Hooper; Brown and Mossey.
Referee—A. Locksley, Esquimalt.
Linemen—A. Hart, Nanaimo; D.
Turnbull, Ladysmith..
lack of space prevents giving in detail. At the close ot the banquet
the floor was cleared and the dance
took place till 11:30 when. Ladysmith
departed for home, in tho best ot
spirits and hoping for better luck
next time. .
At a meeting of the Victoria Board of Trade last
Thursday the question of an afternoon mail service on the
E. & N. Railway came up for consideration. With the E.
& N. at present giving^^ouble service on only three
days in the week, it would be a difficult matter to arrange
a double mail on these dav$, but the moment a regular
double train service is resold, there should be afternoon
mails. Some objection has been made on account of the
cost, but, as the Victoria Colonist points out, the post-
office department is not run to make money, but for public

The Kinrade Case
Will Come Up Again
Ladysmith Defeated
by Extension
Ladysmith lacrosse boys met with
defeat at Extension hy the team ot
that place on Thursday afternoon to
the tune of 0 to 1. The grounds
were slow bat not any slower than
the local team. It was all Extension from start to finish. They defended their own goal ln good style
and had a system of attack while
the play of Ladysmith was ragged.
Further reference to the match Is
unnecessary but the boys here must
now start and practlco as a team
if they hope to win.
After the game tbe visitors were
entertained ln royal style, a banquet and dance being given them In
the K. P. ball. Everyone present
declared that it was tho best treatment they, had ever receivod or could
ever hope to receive. About 30 lacrosse players and friends sat down
to the supper and discussed tho lino
points of the gamo, somo even going

will continue: "This case will not be
dropped until it is solved. The mills
of justice may seem for a time to
grind slow, but in the view of the
department a slow course is a sure

Mr. Foy says he never heard before that the Kinrade jury had a

that they had ret'irned an open verdict in order not to interfere with
the plans of tbe lawyers.

There is an interesting meeting of
the British Columbia Methodist •Conference being held at New Westminster. One of tho events of tbe
conference was thc unveiling of a

four) Rev. O. Bryant, (father of Mr.
Theodore Bryant,) Rev. T. Crosby,

These portraits were the work ot

little better than a shack town in
1859. Mr. C. G. Major said that at
that time they bad to pay $1 for a
paper six weeks old, and that beans,
bacon and flour were each 31 a

Originally this whole region was
heavily timbered, so the reports of!
explorers and other visitors to the
district say, with the exception of
a small area (eighteen miles ln extent) situate above the timber line.
"So numerous and so disastrous
havo been the fires following in the
wake of the travellers, settlers and
railways," Mr. McMillan writes,
"that at present, of tha original 212
square miles ot forest, only
square miles remain." Moreover,
the timber which is easiest to get
at is always the flc.it destroyed, and
what Is lett is situated at high'

following with regard to fruit growing In B. C. nnd in Vancouver Island
"Fruit growing In Biitish OoVna-

among the industries of that province on iho P-fiflT To thc Bcm-
lishman, fruit growing possesses
great attractions, the character    oi
| the settlement which thc Industry
ensures and the social conditions
which accompany it are what be
seeks and prizes. The history of
the great fruit growing enterprise
in California which had been largely
developed by British settlement and
British capital Is a proot of this
fact. The greater proportion of the
land In British Columbia suitable
for fruit   growing   Is covered with
| tedious and expensive. It involves
S3 .forests and the process of clearing la
the loss of much valuable time before the settler can create a property returning the income he desires.
The Canadian Pacific Railway, with
characteristic foresight and enterprise, has anticipated these difficulties and in Vancouver Island has selected and set aside 100,000 acres
from its land grant Bpeclncally for
fruit growing settlements.

Vote for the Sewer By-law
Next Monday the ratepayers will be given an opportunity of endorsing the amended sewerage by-law. It is
unfortunate that the original by-law was not altogether
acceptable to the money lenders, but the men who purchase debentures are very careful as to the exact terms
in which their security is guaranteed. Therefore, no objection can be taken to Mr. Brent and hi3 associates in
insisting on a by-law that will stand in the courts. There
does not seem to be any reason why there should be one
vote recorded against the by-law. A sewerage system is
essential to the health of the people, and past experience
has taught the citizens of Ladysmith many severe les-
We have had epidemics here that were manifestly the
result of defective sanitary conditions, and the city will
be menaced by other epidemics until the causes are removed. If the original by-law had been satisfactory the
sewerage works would have been in process of construe
tion at the present time, and in order that the delay may
be as short as possible, Mr. Brent has everything ready in
Toronto to start printing the debentures just as soon as
he receives telegraphic notice of the adoption of the bylaw by the ratepayers. If the by-law passes next Mon
day; the contract may be let the day following. It is the
duty of every ratepayer to turn out Monday and vote for
the by-law. A big vote will convey the impression that
ths ratepayers ar2 alive to their own best interests.
Down on Dice Throwing.
The-License Commissioners of Vancouver, at a recent
meeting, decided to recommend to the City Council the
adoption of a by-law abolishing dice-throwing in barrooms.
This leads the Vancouver World to remark that the practice of dice-throwing is one of the most undesirable developments of the "treating" idea. Few things contribute
more to excessive and unnecessary drinking than the put
ting of the payment to the hazard of the dice. The
"lucky" man is not seldom the least fortunate, because,
after a run of luck, it is usually regarded as a matter of
honor with him to give his opponents an opportunity for
"revenge." In consequence, what was probably regarded at. the outset as an innocent and necessary refresh-

Real Estate Profits
If you lived in Vancouver you would hear every day stories of men making huge profits from a small
investment in Real Estate.
It is simply a repetition of the history of all great Cities in their growing period. Seattle, San Francisco, Spokane, Chicago, Milwaukee, Denver and a hundred other cities in the United States as well as
our own Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and now Vancouver have made and continue to make great wealth
for those who invest in suburban property that is as sure to increase in value as it is true that to-day
followed yesterday. There is in Vancouuer to-day a good deal of suburban property that will double
and treble in value within the next two or three years.
The City of Vancouver will double in population within the next five years according to the most conservative estimates, and with such rapid growth going on, it takes no prophet to foretell that a wise
investment NOW will not only be perfectly safe but will also yield very large profits.
If you will look at the location of
the black triangular shaped pece in
the accompanying map you will see
that it is favorably located as to
street car lines.
If you were on the property and
could see its beautiful location as to
view, etc., you would feel as I did
when I first visited "Cedar Cottage
Park". D. L. 393, that it was the
most favorablv situated piece of land
to be had for the price or double the
price in fact, near the City of Vancouver.
"Cedar Cottage Park" eannot-fail
to become very valuable property in
the near future and therefore I would
advise you to buy as many lots as you
can in (his sub-division.
Lots in "Cedar Cottage Park" are
sold on very easy terms, so easy
in fact, that any wage-earner in
Ladysmith may pay for at least
one lot from his monthly earnings.

Interested In the Dominion
Sir Edward Olouston, Bart,, vice-
president of the Bank of Montreal,
who has just returned to this country atter visiting Great Britain and
the'continent, in an interview stated
that the rapid development of the
Dominion and tbe success wbicb tbe
Canadian Pacific railway and other
enterprises has achieved, have Heated the deepest interest in the progress ot this country in financial and
Industrial circles in itreat Britain.
As one result of British interest in
Canadian affairs, Sir Edward said
that emigration from Great Britain
this seat-.« Would be very large. He
thought that the coming to Canada
of so many enterprising and wealthy
observers could have but one effect,
and that wcnld be large additional
rrtUah holdings ln the various enterprises ot this country.
In regard to banking conditions in
Great Britain, Sir Edward stated
that as tar as be remembered there
wero fewer banks in the old country
at the present time than a quarter
of a century ago, but as many amalgamations had taken place, andtbe
institutions thus given greater Influence and strength, it was obvious
tbe same rule worked out in the
same way would apply equally well
to tbe banking facilities ot this country. Asked as to what he thought
the present banks would be able to
look after the business of Canada,
Sir Edward answered in the affirmative. As regards the knowledge the
British people have of Canada, Sir
Edward stated that this knowledge
did not to any great extent apply
to our industries. Those, however,
who knew our country perfectly and
who understood our protective system, would, buy industrial stocks and
put them away; but he thought the
time wn« not quite ripe tor any

St. Helena
Near Poverty
What is to be the fate ol St. Helena? Is the question asked by the
Hon. H. W. Solomon, of thc executive council of the island, who has"
issued a plea on behalf ot the distressed Inhabitants.
"It is over two years since the
garrison was removed," says Mr.
Soloman in a letter to A. G. Wise,
secretary of the St. Helena committee, "and although we appreciate
the action of the colonial office in
giving a subsidy to start a hemp
mill, as well as a grant for teaching the girls lace making, yet much
more remains to be done. At the
requests of former governors the
farmers improved their. breed ot
live stock, being assured they would
always be required for military service. The result is that the farmers are to-day left with some 2,000
cattle on their hands which are practically useless, as on account of their
poverty, theyi have no money to purchase meat. These cattle are also
an impediment to the growing ol
hemp, occupying pasture lands which
would otherwise be used for hemp
cultivation. Money is also needed
tor the upkeep ot the roads.
"Large numbers ot children are un
ment must be found when they leave
Financial assistance is needed from
the authorities at home in the island,-
which played such a consplchous
part in British history, if it is to

was a clean line of descent between
man and the ape, was the man. going towards the ape or coming fron;

Making   Profit
We ctrtainly expect to make a reasonable profit on everything we sell.
If we did not, wo would close up shop. But miod you, we said reasonable.
Some grocers want big profits, but then they are satisfied with few sales.
We run our business on a different basis: small profits often repeated. We
are satisfied, our customers are satisfied to save money on good quality

from the tips on her patent shoes to
the angle of thc green feather on her
hat. She explained her likes and
dislikes in pert little phrases, which
seemed to afford her admirers continual delight. New, York was really
her home, but London was great—
uvcryono had been real good to her
and she was going to have another
song next week. In the middle of it
all sue caught thc adoring gaze of
thc boy who wrote things, who
wasn't really a boy at all, but who
camo Irom the country and was paln-
liuty shy. Someone whispered In
her oar and she suddenly beamed
upon him.
"Say, are you the Mr. Rankin who
writes those delightful stories?" she
asked him sweetly.
He stammered out something to
the effect that he did write stories
and she moved up to the corner of
the lounge.
"You must come and sit right
down by me,'< she declared. "I want
to know how you think of nil those
wonderful plots."
This was where the thing began.
Presently the reporter, finding that
there was no more material Ior him,
went away and left the boy who had
been his companion behind. Ono by
one the others dropped off, and presently thc girl rose, too.
"I must go back and get a sandwich or something betore I go to thc
theatre," she remarked, looking nt
her hat In the glass.
The young man Rankin was suddenly   bold.
"Won't you come into tho cute witli
mo and have something?!' he asked
Sho hesitated tor a moment and
glanced at him furtively. They were
certainly a rather queer looking
couple, she neat and chic and expensive, he in ill-fitting country clothes, an unfashionable collar nnd impossible tic. He was just as conscious as she was at her ease, and
thongn the maltre d'hotel handled
him gently, he showed a lamentable
ignorance in those small amenities
which a smart young woman expects
from her male escort. However, they
got through the meal somehow, and
after first under-tipping and over-
tipping the waiter, dropping his hat
and treading upon her gown, thoy
got out of the place. When he told
the driver ot the hansom to drive
to the Cnrlton Theatre—stage door-

He ventured to ask her to supper,
but she had had enough for the present, nnd declined. But she was in
her way a kindly little soul, and when
she suw how disappointed he was she
made him some amends.
"You can look ln tor half an Hour
alter the show it you like," she told
him, "20 Carlton Mansions."
"What time may I come?" ho de
mar.ded  breathlessly.
"Any time, not before twelve," she!
He walked down to the Embankment afterwards. He felt the absolute]
need ot being somewhere where he
could think. He was an impressionable young fool, of course, but after
all, he was honest and those were
beautiful thoughts which came to him
as he walked slowly along, his eyes
travelling over the dark, Blowly flowing water to the glittering arc ot
lights beyond. Up and up and up he
lifted her, up beyond the stars to the
diyino company oi the women who
had ruled thc world, through the
hearts of Its conquerors; and yet no
higher than his foolish heart which
- had taken her In for all thc days.
It was hall past twelve when ho
knocked with beating heart at tho
door ol ber room. Tho luxury of thc
opposite tho door. A man was, sitting on its arm and she waB laughing up into Ills face. Several other
girls In neglige attire wero in thc
room and half a dozen men. There

soda upon the Bldcboard, the remains
of a supper upon the table. It   was _.^^^__^^^__

Sho half rose from her chair   and | othcf tnWo towards which she   had
introduced him to everybody. He felt
salt across the marshes and tbo incoming tide rent long streaks ol silver into tho brown land. Ho told
her of the white winged birds, thc
winter sunlight, thc wonderful fascinating loneliness ol thc forgotten
village from which he came. And
after* a moment or two's Iblank wonderment she was bored. She hid it
at first' with .; .gentle yawttB behind
iici fan."" He was blind to the hint,
anfl  went   on—rushing  against    his
that it was rather a trying moment.
All the men were in evening dress,
and obviously belonged to, a set with
which he had come little Into contact.
They all spoke a lew words to him,
and one of the girls tried to draw
him into conversation. But, nevertheless, he felt hopelessly an alien.
They talk in a shibboleth which he
did not understand, their jokes, theij)
laughter, tholr flying remarks all
seemed to be founded upon a common and Intimate acquaintanceship.
He did his best but he felt himself
a ghastly failure. His hostess camo
over at last and sat by his side.
There is no doubt at all thnt she
was a kindly  little  person.
"I'm afraid you're bored, as they
say, over here," she began
"I'm not," he answered with unexpected boldness, "but I hated to sec

thought he had been amusing. He

demanded.    "Wouldn't you sit there,

so often, covertly glauccd, caused her
to turn her head. A hand was waved to her, a signal flashed back. A
moment or two later, two of tbe
mon were by her side.
They spoke courteously to her comr
panion—they had both been at thc
flat on the night of his visit. They
even tried to avoid tho appearance
of ignoring htm, but the thing was
hopeless from the first. She was
one of those who demands the right
to be amused, as the ordinary person
demands to live. Her companion
had failed—failed utterly In every
way. She felt herself aggrieved^ and
the limit's of het good-nature had
been reached. The rest is quite ,oasy
to guess. A sort of amalgamation
of the two parties took place. No
one was rude to Rankin—they were
all too well bred, but tho thing
camo home to him. When the party
dissolved he slipped away unnoticed
—certainly unmissed.

A great city is springing into being in British
Columbia. It is Prince Rupert—the city of
destiny. >
Prince Rupert is the terminus of the Grand
Trunk Pacific—the emporium of Northern British Columbia, Alaska and the Yukon—the centre
ofthe great fishing industry of the north—and
destined to be one of the great commercial and
industrial centres of population on the continent.
Between 2,000 and 2,400 lots will be offered for
sale by public auction in Vancouver, B. C, May
25th to 29th. Terms:—one-quarter cash; balance one, two and three years at six per cent,

What San Francisco is to Calif ornia—what Portland is to Oregon— what Seattle is to Washington
—and what Vancouver is to Southern B. C,
Prince Rupert will be to the great developing
region of the North.

Electric Light Debentures
If the city enters into an arrangement with the smelter
company to supply current for strest lighting purposes,)
Ladysmith should be lighted by electricity within a few
months.  The money for the electric light debentures
should be herein a few days, and by that time the counci
will have an answer from the smelter company.   If an
agreement cannot be reached between the smelter company and the ci.y, it will be the duty of the latter to proceed with as little delay as passible to install its own plant.
If the light is not here in September there will be many
more gasolene plants installed, which will mean a great
loss to the city.

Experiments  in tbe use of radium
for medical purposes are being made
for the first time in Canada by Dr.
George E. Armstrong, who has just
returned from Paris, where   he   has
been studying its possibilities at thc
famous Radium Institute,   says the
Montreal Gazette.     Dr.   Armstrong
brought back a small supply of tho
precious material with him,   and is
already experimenting with  its  use,
but as yet    hns   not   secured any
marked results, as  ho has only  been
using it a couple of days.   He nat
urally,   did   not bring   a very large
supply of the stuff   back with   him,
as it is worth   (100   a   milligram,
which is about the size of a pinhead.
Discussing his trip, Dr. Armstrong
said he found the work at Paris very
interesting.   He spent some time at
the Radium   Institute   watching experiments with the new material tor
the cure   of   various forms of skin
diseases, cancerous growths, etc. The
use  of radium, however, he stated.
was only used in England, but it
was quito common on the continent
in the middle ages.
The ringing of bells by rope is
still very popular in England, especially in the country, where almost every hamlet, howover small,
has Its church with Its peal of bells,
which arc often remarkably well
rung. The first peal of bells in England was sent by Pope Calixtus III.
King's college, Cambridge, and

in England. About the beginning of
the year 1500 sets of eight bcllu

In the middle of the sovontcenth
century a man named White wrote a
famous work on bolls in which ho Introduced the system of number! >g
them 1, 2,.3, 4, otc, on slips of paper In different orders, according to
the changes intended to be rung. It
is calculated that to ring all the
changes upon 22 bells at two strokes
a sccdnd would take 1M,000,OQO
Ono of thc most famous bells in
thc world is thc first great bell ot
Moscow, which now stands in the
middle of a square in that city and
is used as a chapel. This hell was

A Philadelphia physician, lately returned from a trip to Jamaica, was
greatly impressed with tbo almost
total absence of any kind of germs
on thc island, Infection is so rare
as to bo almost Unknown, and lt Is
not necessary for surgeons to take
thc precautious against it which aro
iudispcnsablo here.
"I was amazed when I saw them
dressing wounds in a Kingston hospital," Buld tho physician. "They
used no antiseptics of any kind, and
did not even go to thc trouble of sterilizing instruments, I questioned
surgeons   in   charge, and they
said it was not necessary; tbat there
wero so few infectious germs on the
island that healing was almost never interrupted by infection.
"If wc should  do work tn any   ot
our Philadelphia hospitals   as thoy,
do it wc would be overwhelmed with
blood poisoning and other cases ol
that kind. Thoy will not always
have this freedom from germs, bow-
ever. Intercourse with the United
States and I'Hurope will, in time,
load them up with germs, unloss
great precautions arc taken.
"It is a pity that such must bo
the case, just as -the introduction ol;
tuberculosis germs into America by
the white man was a great pity.
The Indians never hud tuberculosis
until thc Europeans came and then
they wcro decimated by thc disease.
Many of tho South Sea islands arc
totally free from malaria just because they do not have malarial
germs nor tho • mosquitoes which
transmit them. To me a country

"There is certainly something
in radium tor medical purposes,"
said Dr. Armstrong, "but it is almost too soon to yet givo a place
to it. It is being thoroughly investigated at Paris, and it seems to be
of '«|"!e for various superficial skin
diseases, cancerous growths, etc.
The doctors there have secured very
good results In some cases, but enough is not as yet knownto compare
it with results obtained trom other
things, so that as yet it is impossible to say just what it will do."
Dr. Armstrong brought back several milligrams of the precious stuff

Tacoma, Wash., May 13.-That the
much treasured machinery, of: the pio-
onccr steamer1 Beaver, (purchased at a
fancy price and brought to this city
from British Columbia, is not thc
original machinery placed in that
vessel by tho celebrated Watt, back
in the early '30'9, is declared by
Robert McCulloch, ot Tacoma. In h
marine history nf the Pacific coast,
which McCulloch has tound, an account of tho Beaver Is given, and
tho statement made that thc vessel
was overhauled at Victoria about forty years ago, hcr machinery taken
ont and new machinery Installed.
"The only part of the original
machinery placed in the vessel when
she' was being built on the river
Thames, England, is a small section
of one shaft," said McCulloch today. "The rest of ber machinery,
built and placed ln her by Watt, was
taken out at Victoria and placed ln
the srrap heap."
Members of the state historical
society not only paid a fancy price
for thc machinery of the Beaver,
but later footed a, freight bill of $700
for bringing it from British Columbia to Tacoma.
Speaking of the above, Hon. J. S.
Hctnickcn of Victoria, says he docs
notscc how thc boiler.* could be the
ones that came ont iu tho Beaver.
Shc came out. under sail with the
wheels in the hold and the original
boilers} ,wcj>e, especially constructs
for burning wood. Later the steamer burnt coal so tbat tt was unreasonable to suppose she was using
the same boilers. It is also pointed
out that the life of a boiler is nothing like as long as that ascribed
to the Beaver's boilers.
