Aid. Mobley said that A. W. Agnew

r1 m accordance with the council's
idea and Mr. Agnew will be instructed
to put in the stand pipes.
Getting    Tired.
Aid. Lynch said that some of the
station men working under the water
committee were working ten hours a
day. He said that he would like to see
the council issue orders that the eight
hour day be enforced.
The citizen's water committee
handling the water mains extensions
wish to throw the tail end of their work
upon the council. The council said,
"Let the committee finish its work."
This applied to sewer work also. The
committee will therefore go ahead and
complete their work.
The council will, however, take over
the matter of tenders for the new 6 in.
water pipes.
Preparing Reports.
Aid. Smith notified the council that
reportx were being prepared on the elce
trie light and telephone company's
progress and would  be ready shortly.
The telephone committee will take
up the matter of the water front for
the electric light plant with the Provincial government. The city will have to
build a wharf for the reception of the
plant as it arrives.
It is expectcfi that the Finance committee will soon have advanced their
work so far that they will be in a psition
to arrange with one of the banks to finance the city until the taxes come in.
Aid. Pattullo stated that he would make
a report Monday night.
First   By-law.
Aid. Pattullo gave notice that he would
at the next meeting of the council introduce a by-law referring to the rule of

MORE FIRE PROTECTION
TO RETAIN THE STAFF
BURNS COMPANY ENGAGES THE
MORROW EMPLOYEES.
Believed The Construction Of The
Big New Company's Cold Storage
Plant Will Be Begun About The
Middle   Of   Next   Week.
Blake  Wilson  and  J.  W.   Miller  of
i P.   Burns  &  Co.,  left  last  night   for
1 Stewart to take over the meat business
of L. Morrow & Co. at that point and
1 also to complete arrangements  for supplying meat to the McKenzie & Mann
camps.   This contract alone will be an
I immense thing.
In connection with the local meat
; business that P. Burns & Co. have
1 acquired, it is understood that all
j the principal employees will be retained.
I This the public will be pleased to learn
! as all the men in L. Morrow & Co's
shops are well qualified for their posi-
t ions and   are  generally   liked.
As to when definite arrangements for
| the construction of the cold storage plant
i here the Optimist learned that everything
I will be decided about the middle of next
week.   Tho plant will cost in the neighborhood of $25,000.
Lost Motorboat Safe.
Havana, May 30.���The power boat
Caroline, which started in the Savannah-
Havanna race and about the safety of
which so much anxiety was felt, ha s
turned upsafe and is in port here. She
broke a blade of her propeller and was for
days at the mercy of the waves before she
was taken in tow by a passing steamer.
All on board are well.
IMMIGRATION RULES MAY KEEP
OUT     LABOUR.
All the Immigration Regulations
Tightened Up By New Orders
In Council���May Affect Railway
Construction.
Copies of the immigration regulations
as changed by orders in council just
reached here from the Minister of Marine, may seriously affect the supply of
labour for the construction work of
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway at
Prince Rupert. All the regulations
of the subject of thelanding of immigrants
seem to have been tightened up, and the
one that will probably affect this port
very unfavourably is sub-section 1
of section 38, of the Immigration Act.,
which was passed on the 9th of thi
This reads: "From and after the date
hereafter given, the landing i: ?anada
is hereby prohibited of any immigrants
who have come to Canada otherwise
than by continuous journey from the
country of which they are natives or
citizens and upon through tickets purchased or prepaid in Canada."
Under the former regulations the law
was nearly the same.but with the important difference that the immigration agent
at any port was permitted to use hi
discretion  in  regard  to  the  rigid  enforcement of this clause.      To enforce
it both in its letter and spirit may have
1 the effect of seriously reducing the labor
coming to this port in search of employ-
I ment.    But  Dr.  Reddie says there is
no   other course open to him. Hitherto,
| the agent, when dealing with undesira-
' bles  or  those  not  entirely  complying
: with the regulations, was    empowered
! to take  into consideration   local  conditions and need not be too strict in the
enforcement of the regulations.
Take for example the present situation.
Foley, Welch & Stewart are getting a
large number of men for their construction work and are employing Austrians,
Montenegrins,    Russians  and   Italians.
Many of these come from the United
I States, and under the operation of the
old regulations the agent could take into
; consideration the fact that
these aliens had work to go to immediately,   were   not   liable   to   become   a
charge upon the community and thus
i use  his  discretion  in  admitting  them.
; None of these could now be admitted
if they do not come direct from their own
country,   unless  they  have  taken  out
I naturalization, papers In America and
thus become citizens of lhal   country.
I As   so   large   a   proportion   of   foreign
J immigration arrives on this continent at
New York, booked direct to that, port
j and no further, the enforcement of the
new regulation must naturally limit the
number of aliens coming to this pore In
i search of labor, and thus seriously embarrass the railway contractors in obtaining sufficient men.    It has not had
time to show effect." yet, but it is expected that the falling off in the number of
laborers intending to come here will be
felt during the coming week, as the agents
below will not send them up in face of this
new regulation.
Dr. O. .S.' Rsddie, immigration agent
at this port, and the Grand Trunk Officials here are to lay the matter before the
Minister of Marine at Ottawa, in the
in the hope that if it is shown that the
rigid enforcement of the new regulation
may seriously retard construction work
on the railway, he may think it wise to
order an easement in its enforcement
at this port.
It thus becomes a matter of great
importance to the people of this city
upon  the  subject.
There is another amended clause in the
regulations that is liable to hurt Prince
Rupert, and this is that the alien landing
here must have in his possession a minimum of $25. This may have the effect
of shutting out any desirable mechanics
and artisans because it will have to be
rigidly enforced while formerly the agent
could take into consideration local
conditions and use his discretion as to
admitting the alien. This clause also is
one that should be discussed by the
board of trade.

AGAINST CONSCRIPTION
LIBERAL PARTY OF BRITAIN
DIVIDED UPON IT.
IS
Disclosure that King Edward Urged
Government to take Bold Stand
in Support of it.���General Public
Strongly Opposed.
London, May 30���The wrath of the
liberal party has been worked up to a
high pitch by the attempt of the milit-
arista to force conscription upon the I
country. They contend that thc national memorial lo King Edward should take
the form of a voluntary demand for
universal military service
The militarists respond that   the vol- j

Recommend Paid Chief and Purchase of Automobile Chemical
And Hose Wagon���Want More
Hose  and  More  Hall  Room.
The fire and water committee made
its first report to the council on Satur
day night. It is a most interesting
document and should be read by every
citizen. It is printed below in full,
as follows:
There is on hand at the Fire hall
at the present time, one thousand feet
regulation hose and wagon; one wheeled
hand chemical, fifty-five gallon capacity;
one scaling ladder; four hand chemicals,
capacity three gallons each. Buckets,
axes, lanterns, etc.
The department, which is entirely
volunteer, is at present under the direction of Chief McKellar.
There are at present nineteen stand
pipes throughout the city, most of which
are situated in the congested portion of
section 1.
Your committee is of the opinion that
the Fire department should be placed
on the best possible basis, taking into
consideration the present water supply
of the city.
Your committee recommends the ap-
i pointment of a paid chief of the Fire
department, who shall also, meantime, be
! inspector of buildings,  at  a salary of
$150. per month.
At as early a date as possible, your
committee recommends in addition to
the chief, that tiere should be three paid
men at a salary of one hundred dollars
per month each, and six call men at a
salary of twenty-five dollars per month
each.
Your committee recommends the purchase of a combination hose and chemical
automobile at an estimated cost of $5,000
Your committee has not been able
to obtain definite data regarding the
cost of the automobile.so that the amount,
suggested is merely an estimate.
In a town constructed as is Prince
Rupert, the putting out of a fire at its
first incipkney is of tho utmost importance. The present hand chemical
and hose wagon are, in the opinion of
your committee, not adequate.
Your committee recommends the pru-
chase of an additional thousand feet of
hose at an approximate cost of one thousand dollars; also one pull down honk
at a cost of twenty dollars. The Fire
hall will need to be remodelled for accomodation of men and automobile al an:
approximate cost of $900.
The amount, therefore, which your
Committee would require to be placed
at its disposal at this time for the balance of  the year ia approximately as
found wanting, and express tho belief
that only by conscription can the army
be recruited to nearly its full strength.   , .,
m       j.       li.       . i   I .    Ti.     i follows:-
To   strengthen   their   argument    they      ���,      .   ,
state it has been disclosed that before;  . C nuemlcal  automobile and   Combination hose $5,000
One   thousand   feet   hose  .    ..1,000
his death King Edward urged the government to take a bold stand in favor of
conscription.
This question of conscription is just
| now exciting more discussion and comment than any other and public sentiment
seems to be strong in opposition to it.
Was Now Inevitable.
Washington,   May     30.���(Special)���
Official  advices  received  at  the  state
; department this morning serve to show
! that a war between Peru and Ecudor is
j now inevitable, and that the friendly
offices of the United States in the boundary dispute have proven of no avail.  It is
| expected that hostilities between the two
countries may open at any moment.

WILL INSTAL MACHINERY.
To Take  Gold Out Of The Black
Sands On Graham Island.
A. C. Garde, of Nelson, B. C, was
in the city on Saturday and left that
evening on the Henriette for Graham
Island, where he will take charge of the
season's operations on the black sands
placer gold mining properties.. Mr.
Garde is a well known mining engineer
and looks for good results this year.
Several thousand dollars in gold were
taken out last year by hand. It is the
intention to install at as early a date
as possible, machinery for taking out
this gold. The installation of the plant
represents a large expenditure of money
and Arthur Pearson, the owner of the
property has left for the old country to

NEW INTERIOR RAILWAY.
Now Surveying The British Columbia
Alaska   line.
News from the interior just received
states that large parties of surveyors
have started out from Lytton and Fort
George to delimit the route ofthe proposed British Columbia-Alaska line
which will go north from a point in the
neighbourhood of Lytton and pass
through the rich country of which Fort
George is the centre. This is simply
one more web in the network of lines
which will very soon open up the whole
of British Columbia. There are at the
present time no railways running north
and south, but these are sure to follow
the east and west lines. They are just
as much a necessity as the others and,
in fact, the country cannot properly be
opened up without them. Steamships
are all right on the coast, but the interior has to be served, and by railways.

Flans for a long distance boat race
between Ketchikan, Alaska, and Seattle
a distance of 661 miles are being formulated by the Pacific International Motor-
boat association the contest to take place
in August. Cups and trophy awards
of $5,000 will be given to the winners
aside from cash prizes amounting to
$2000.
This will be the first long distance
motorboat race ever attempted on the
Pacific coast, and the members of the
organization plan to make it along the
lines of the races held annually between
New York and Bermuda, and Philadelphia and Havana. The association
will furnish the $5000 for the trophies
and $500 of the cash prize money. It
has appealed to the Seattle Commercial
Club for assistance in raising the remaining $1,500, contending that the
event would be a great advertisement
for the Pacific Northwest.

Dispute over Staked Land.
A series of disputes has recently
arisen in the Telkwa district through
land that has been staken by Mr. Hamilton for coal being subsequently re-
staked as farm lands by numerous prospective settlers and investors. The
matter is now receiving consideration
in the Lands Department by which it
will be adjusted.

Tikes Electric Furnace Into Mountains to Melt Ore at His Mine.
will
and
An    electric     furnace   that
jneratc  6,000  degrees   of   heat
hat will be used for the purpose of
melting ore at the mouth of the mines,
i been manufactured by the Electric
instruction company.     The  furnace
las ordered by an old prospector who
llaims he has valuable holdings somewhere in the mountains.  He intends to
tack the furnace  (which weighs little
tore than 100 lbs.) and a small generat-
to his mine, where he will generate
|he necessary electric juice to heat the
irnace from a mountain stream and
melt the ore right oh the ground, bring-
j back to civilization nothing but pure
killion.
J The furnace is about 18 inches square
|nd is insulated with asbestos lumber
md asbestos cement so perfectly that
the interior is heated to the full
lapacity   the   outside  remains   prac-
|ically cold.   The heat is produced by
electrid arc, to which the current
isea through a regulator.   A test of
furnace was  made the other day
h a small amount of silver ore in
Ihe crucible.    In 14 minutes after the
lurrent was turned on the silver was
pelted. The interior of the furnace will
remain at a red heat for some hours
^tter the current is turned off owing
i its complete insulation.    This is the
electric furnace of the kind to be
hanufactured in Canada.
Views On Canadian Navy.
I The   Manchester   Guardian   says-:
"Canada having decided to have a
lavy of her own, Sir Wilfrid Laurier
las taken the only possible way. The
ting's Canadian Navy must be con-
tolled through his Canadian Ministers
Ind Imperial Ministers must desist
i any schemes of centralization
Ihich would have the effect of chal-
Inging the full rights of colonial self-
government. Instead of repressing the
expression of colonial nationality they
should rather encourage it by allowing the colonies greater share in the
management and direction of their
external affairs. That has been Mr.
Bryce's policy at Washington, and it has
been brilliantly successful.
Speaking at Sackville, N. B., Hon.
H. R. Emmerson declared himself in
favour of the direct contribution to
the British navy and that Canada should
go slow about building a navy.
Chips Are Real Money.
Poker chips taken out of the rake-off
in a poker game go for real money with
the Supreme Court of West Virginia.
According to a decision just handed down
this court sustains the lower court in its
findings that a man who took poker chips
from a game in payment for beer furnished the players was handling real
money.
The case was that of state against
W. T. Collins. The defendant was
convicted of selling liquor illicitly. He
conducted a gambling room where chips
were worth five to twenty-five cents
each and where each player purchased
a number of them from him to use in
making bets.
Hat  The   Press   Deteriorated?
Col. Henry Watson, of Louisville, Ky.,
last survivor of the old school of editors,
in addressing the Canadian Press association at Toronto, said: "The press
everywhere in England, America, even
in Germany and in France, where personal equation still sets the pace, has
deteriorated in weight, whilst elaborating its methods and augmenting its
enterprise. We hear a great deal about
yellow journalism. It is much like
the pot calling the kettle black. Offences
agains decency are more or less relative
and qualified. More and more will
newspaper owners and makers discover
that integrity and cleanliness pay the
best -dividends?"
SETTLERS FROM AMERICA.
Many Come Determined To Assimilate With Canadians.
The story of the migration of the American settlers to the Canadian west is
one of real human interest. It is a
story of a quest for homes, a change
in the tide of colonization, a story of
the lure of the land; and it is delightfully interesting to greet individuals
of that legion of immigrants on the
threshold of the new, strange land
of their adoption���the cradle of an
empire and a new race���a race"born
of the diverse entities now "fusing" into
a vigorous young nation in which is
wrapped up their hopes and their aspirations. They have cut adrift from
the past and its association, and to
them belongs the future; for their desire for land has led them along the
path of the pioneers under a foreign
flag.
Sanguine and expectant they are
crossing the border seeking only the
recompense of the pioneer which
may be described as a home unfettered and true freedom. To some���
the unfortunate we shall say���it may
mean disappointment, but to the majority it means a fortune and independence. Everyone of them is imbued with the hope that springs eternal,
born by confidence in themselves,
and seemingly assured of being realized
in the land of promise to which they
are coming.
Very Clever  Entertainer.
"An evening in Scotland and Ireland
with Miss Duthie" is certainly an enjoyable one, and the two nights the lady
was here her entertainments received
large and appreciative audiences. It
did one good to be one of them, and to
feel the dour Scot transplanted into
Prince Rupert, soften with the pathos
of her old time songs, or hear him roar
with laughter at the quaint stories to
which the burry accent was as the heather
flowers are to the bleak Highlands.
It was a long programme for the one
little woman and the enthralled way
in which she held here audience all
through, in a newly built hall without
stage accessories at all, was little short
of the marvellous. In her delineation
of Irish life and character she was nearly
as successful, and her concluding song,
"Comin' thro' th' Rye," with its shy
gaiety and sad cadences, showed the
clearness and depth of her richsoprano.

BATTLE AT BLUEFIELDS
MADRIZ   HAS    BEEN    REPULSED
WITH HEAVY LOSS.
Daily Edition.
Monday, May 30
Indian troubles in Prince Rupert demonstrate very clearly to the citizens
that the Canadian government was very much alive to conditions and results
when they legislated against Indians procuring or drinking liquor or "fire-wate.r"
That part of the Indian Act has done a great deal to protect the public against
infuriated natives and to protect the natives against themselves. That local Indians , during the past year, have been able to obtain whisky in Prince Rupert
as openly as white men. is not secret. It is up to the Indian agent, the Provincial
authorities and the local police force, when appointed, to take immediate steps
to bring justice to all who supply liquor to the Indians and to do their utmost
to stamp out that branch of the traffic. Safety to life and property demand it.
Neglect or delay will result seriously to the citizens.

near here yesterday when the forces of
Madriz were repulsed and badly crippled.
General Estrada led the attack early in
the morning deploying his cavalry and
infantry under cover of his machine guns.
Madriz was taken by surprise and beat a
hurried retreat, in the course of which
two hundred ot his men were hilled. It
is reported that Estrada suffered a loss
of only ten men with a few wounded.
Three American gunboats are lying
within wireless call of Bluefields, wat-
ing foi a message that might come
at any moment to rush to the Nicaraguan city to prevent its being pillaged
by the forces of President Madriz.

The Western Sugar Refinery Co. are
about to locate a large plant and they are
looking for a suitable place. They have
received flattering inducements from
several places already, but Dr. A. S.
Grant has evidently a warm spot in his
heart for Prince Rupert, at any rate he
he wrote to Aid. T. D. Pattullo and asked him what this city was prepared to do.
He also wished information as to a location convenient to shipping via rail
and water. v
Aid. Patullo introduced the matter
to the city council last Saturday night
and he will also communicate with the
Board of Trade and Publicity Club.
The city council was well pleased to
hear from Dr. Grant and the members
will do all they possibly can to induce
the refinery to locate here. In the meantime Aid. Pattullo was authorized to
communicate with the company and ask
them for definite data as to their proposition. When that is received the council will deal wirh it. Any company wishing to establish an industry here will
receive   liberal   consideration.
Aid. Pattullo replied to the doctors
letter this morning and no stone will lie
left unturiu-d to secure the industry.
A sugar refinery is a splendid Institution
to have in any community and it will be
doubly su to Prince Rupert as it will
bring down the price of sugar which is
now altogether too high on the coast.
Dr. Grant is an old Klondyke boy
and is well acquainted with Aid. Patullo
and a number ot other citizens, He ma le
a lot of money in the it' ��� I li quite
aide to flnanci i .. - r ��� m - or any
other concern hi   takes up.
Thomas Deasy, for some months a
resident of Prince Rupert, will leave for
Masset on the next steamer to assume
the duties of Indian Agent on the Queen
Charlotte group of islands. The new-
agent was for some years connected with
the Indian Department in Victoria. He
is a pioneer of B. C, having arrived here
in 1S59 with the Royal Engineers of
which detachment his late Father was
a Crimean veteran. Mr. Deasy was for
fourteen years Chief of Victoria Fire
Department, and retired from the service
after thirty years active duty with a
record known and appreciated by all
who are interested in life saving work.
He is ex-President of the Pacific Coast
Association of fire chiefs and vice-
President of the B. C. Association of
Fire  Chiefs  and  Fireman.
The agent is conversant with the
Indians and has acted in the capacity
of agent on Vancouver Island. The
many friends of Mr. Deasy will be
pleased  to  hear  of  his  appointment,.

riiimiuee will take up the question of
totalling a fire alarm system.
Your committee is also of the opinion
lhat a more adequate system of fire pro-
Let ion can be procured, even before a
Lrmanent water supply is installed from

Lcommendation  until   the matter can

Important problems with which the city

���esident Currie and Secretary Bowness,
Ud the members of the volunteer fire
jdepariment for the work that they have
{performed to date and the'council should
falso consider a more tangible evidence
{of its appreciation regarding the services of Chief McKellar and the men
under his immediate supervision.
Your committee is of the opinion
Ithat a night patrol should be on duty,
���but believes that this matter should be
lhandled by the police department,
it is highly desirable that the
Ipatrolman should have police powers.

���consulted, has not had time to furnish

Some people have been pretending
incredulity about the launching of the
Prince Rupert and Skeena company's
new boat the Inlander, there have been
so many conflicting statements in regard to her. All these have been set
at r&t by a wireless Mr. Rochester
received yesterday from the captain of
the Rupert City. The Rupert passed
the Inlander in Seymour narrows at
7.30 Saturday morning, so that if the
new boat did not strike bad weather in
the Sound she should be her to-night or
to-morrow morning. She will make her
first trip up the Skeena as soon as she
can be loaded.

An Epitaph.
Here lies a poor woman who always
was tired;
She lived in a house where help was
not   hired.
Her last words on earth were: "Dear
friends   I   am   going
Where washing ain't done, nor sweeping, nor sewing;
But everything there is exact to my
wishes;
For where they don't eat there's no
washing of dishes:
I'll  be  where loud  anthems  will  always be ringing,
But, having no voice, I'll be clear of
the singing.
Don't mourn for me now, don't mourn
for me never���
I'm going to do nothing for ever and
ever.'

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
Partners, wife, or children, seems
ut common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter-
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

WANT  AN   ASSESSOR.
The Council Is Advertising For Man
To Fill That Position.
On another page of this issue will
be found an advertisement for applications for position of assessor. As Aid.
Mobley pointed out at a previous meeting of the council, either Mr. Cuthbert
would have to be retained for the balance of the year or a new assessor must
be appointed at once, as Mr. Cuthbert
is no longer in authority.
. Aid. Pattullo moved that applications for the position be advertised
for at once, same to be in by June 7th.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that the
City could not get a man in the city
to handle the job and to get the new
books started as well or as quickly as
could Cuthbert, and it would be foolish
to engage another man. He strongly
advised that Mr. Cuthbert's services
be retained until the end of the year.
This would mean that the city's taxes
would be collected much sooner.
Aid. Smith seconded Aid. Pattullo's
motion and it carried.
