dying down. Slocan now practically
out of danger if the fires do not start
up again. This was the situation early
this morning as to the forest fires.
It is estimated that over five hundred
men are fighting the flames in the
boundary district. A train at Sandon is
waiting with steam up and all ready to
start at a munute's notice to take the
rest of the refugees away if the wind
changes. The fires are now nearly a
mile away but every eye is on the
weather vane, ready to flee should the
wind veer and turn the flames in the
direction of the gulch in which the town
of Sandon is situated.
The fires near Moyie, although
temporarily kept back by several rain
storms, have again burst out and are
now entirely beyond control.
A letter has been sent by the Rambler-
Cariboo mining company to Premier
McBride, stating that the company's
loss from the forest fires is easily a
quarter of a million, and that the fires
could easily have been extinguished had

Attempts to Wreck Trains.
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, July 21.���Minister of Labor
Mackenzie King is still in hopes of being
able to bring about arbitration in the
Grand Trunk Railway strike, although
in the ultimatum sent by the men to
President Hays the lines were very
sharply drawn. The men declare that
as the president of the road refused their
offer they will now fight for their rights
to the bitter end. They are backed by
the American F3deration of Labor, and
this gives them increased confidence.
Several attempts were made yesterday
to wreck trains, though but few trains,
outside of those carrying the mails,
are moving. There is a fruit and milk
scare in Toronto and complaints will
be coming in shortly from other points
if a settlement is not quickly arrived at.

J seen. At any rate the hot spell

Captain Bartlett Looking Over
Maritime Situation For One of the
Largest Shipping Concerns of the
World, Connecting With all Ports.
Among the passengers on the Prince
Rupert, on his way to Stewart, was
Captain Bartlett, of the famous steamer
Bellerophon. Captain Bartlett is the
special representative of what is known
all over the world as the Blue Funnel
line, at the head of which is Alfred
Holt. They have a transatlantic line
and also to South America both on the
Atlantic and Pacific sides, San Francisco
Vancouver and Puget Sound ports.
Captain Bartlett's mission in taking
the round trip on the Prince Rupert is
to make a careful study of the shipping
situation, and upon his report, if favorable
the company may at once put on a
line of steamers from Vancouver, which
would give Prince Rupert direct communication with all parts of the world
by the boats of the same company until
such time as the Grand Trunk Pacific
transcontinental line is in operation.
Though conditions may not warrant the
starting of such a line of steamers now,
it is pretty certain this great company
will be early in the field.
General Killed in Battle
New Orleans, July 21.���(Special)���
General Carmen Corea, better known
as Colon(the Spanish for Columbus),
according to recent despatches has
been killed in the Nicaraguan interior.
"I did it" said G. T. Williams proprietor of the Talbot RoomB when
magistrate Carss read to him this morning a charge of setting fire to his premises.
The Talbot Rooms took fire Tuesday morning about six o'clock and were
saved from total destruction only by
prompt action and good work on the
part of the fire department and citizens.
The origin of the fire appeared Buspicious
to everyone. So much so that the fire
chief and the chief of police at once began an exhaustive investigation. During
the day a great deal of damaging evidence was dug up and when the chief
considered that he had a pretty good
case Williams was arrested.
The arrest was made about 10:30
o'clock last night on the G. T. P. wharf.
Williams was taken to the police station

where he spent the night and this morning he was taken before magistrate Carss.
The hearing was behind closed doors,
but Chief McCarvell stated to the
Optimist that when the charge was read
to Williams he admitted his guilt. He
was asked if he desired a lawyer and he
said he did not. Williams broke down
and wept all morning. He said he was
very sorry for what he had done and his
only excuse appeared to be that he was
out of his mind.
The gasoline that was discovered in
the garret was purchased three weeks
ago at Davis boat house and a whole
chain of evidence was worked up which
connected Williams with the fire which
threatened to destroy so much property.
The plea of guilty on the part of the
prisoner was a great surprise to the
authorities and the town people were
astounded. Williams was generally held
in high regard and few could believe him
guilty of so nefarious an act. The chief
of police had expected a plea of not
guilty and had intended to ask for
an adjournment, but these plans were
all knocked in the head.
Williams was remanded until tomorrow
morning when the magistrate will decide
what to do with him. The probability
is that he will be committed for trial.
Winston   Churchill    Outlines   Hit
Plant in the Houte of Commons
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 21���In the house of
commons last night Minister Churchill
outlined his plans for the reformation
of British prisons. They are the most
sweeping character and contain the suggestion of bo many startling innovations
that his bill is liable to be killed when it
comes up for final passage. Among
these are the recommendations that all
prisoners be granted a sufficient time in
which to pay their fines; also the arrangements for giving lectures and concerts
for the convicts in their prisons.
Will Be Asked to Return to   Thibet
Under Chinese Protection
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, July 21.���According to the
news just brought here by a Japanese
liner, the Dalai LLama, who is now near
Pekin, is to be asked to return to Thibet
under the protection of the Chinese
government. Having been deprived of
most of his prerogatives by the government there his no knowing what course
the Great Llame will take. Meantime
he is a constant menace to the peace of
China, among the people of which his
followers number some million.s
Report   From   Cardiff   at   Preterit
Lackt    Confirmation
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 21.���The Cardiff Express came out with an extra this morning, stating that Dr. Crippen and his
stenographer Mile. Leneve, who he
was passing off as his wife, had been
arrested at Langerave, near Cardiff.
The report has not yet been verified and
there are doubts as to its correctness.
Scotland Yard refuses to give out any
information on the Bubject.
Heavy Iron Pipe Used from Outlet
To the Big Manhole���Heavy Rock
Cutting Nearly Completed and
The Hardest Part is Passed.
Coal landB have been staked right
into the town of Abbotsford.
Prince Rupert's permanent sewer
system, the first section of which is
being built out of an appropriation of
$25,000 made by the Provincial Government, is making splendid progress. It
was just five weeks ago that the citizen's
committee awarded the contract to
S. P. MeMordie & Co and since then
the work has been progressing as rapidly
as forty men can push it. Only about
five days have been lost on account of
rain and the past week has provided no
interruptions whatever.
Mr. MeMordie is personally looking
after the contract and his presence has
resulted in a very satisfactory job being
done thus far, and there is every reason
to believe that the rest of the contract
will be finished up in the same manner.
One noticeable feature about the work
is the way that the streets and lanes are
being cleaned up after the pipe is laid.
In many cases the property is left in
better shape than it was in before the
work started.
At the present time between 500 and
600 feet of pipe has been laid, most of
that being cast iron ten inch pipe. This
style of pipe is laid from the outlet in
the harbor to the first big manhole.
It is through solid rock cutting all the
way and was used as there is sure to be
a little settlement when the street
grading and filling in is done and it will
stand the test. The sewer is permanent
and it is not intended to even have to
open it up again.
The big manhole is situated on the
G. T. P. grade off First avenue towards
the harbor. It is 28 feet deep and cut
in solid rock. There is only a couple
of days work left for the station gang and
then the concrete work will begin. The
sewer enters the manhole six feet from
the top and will thus have a drop of 22
feet to the cast iron pipe which carried
the sewage into the harbor. From the
top of the manhole to the bed of the
creek which runs around the rear of the
Grand Hotel, the pipe is laid most of
the way. To get over the gully it was
necessary to build a testle a distance of
120 feet to meet the grade on the other
side. This completed and nearly all
the pipes is laid to the second manhole
which is in the lane at the back of the
hotel. From the manhole to Seventh
street the pipe is laid and the trench
nearly all filled in.
The station gang is now finishing the
last heavy rock cut that will be encountered until Sixth street and Third
aqenue are reached. This cut ks on
Seventh street, and the pipe layers
are waiting for the station gang to
finish. The sewer will be complete up to
Second avenue by the first of August.
From Second avenue it will run along
to Sixth Btreet, up Sixth across Third
to the lane at the rear of Thos Dunn's
store and along the lane to Fifth street.
Nearly all this distance is through earth
and much faster progress will be made.
About 150 yards of rock will be found
on Sixth street, near the lane, but once
the contractors get on to Second avenue
a large force will be put on.
Thus far Mr. MeMordie has been
very fortunate with the blasting, only

The Optimist
London Telegraph Killed the Sheriff and Number of Others-
Ludicrous Errors Made in Stampede Stories.
Many columns are devoted to wildly
exaggerated reports of the gold finds
at Portland Canal by the London newspapers received in yesterday's mails-
Lloyd's Weekly says in a double-col.
umn article on the front page:
"Since the rush to the Klondyke after
gold was found there, there has been
nothing like the mad stampede that
has followed the announcement of the
discovery of what is described as a
'mountain of gold' in British Columbia.
"Farmers have left their homesteads, traders their shops, artisans
their benches to dig and delve for the
precious yellow metal.
"Amazing stories have been circulated as to the enormous wealth of the
strike. The golden reef is said to be
1,000 feet wide and 2,000 feet high, and
the ore to assay as much as 12 pounds
sterling a ton.
"The sudden inrush of gold-seekers
has sent the price of all commodities
up with a rush, and many traders look
like making more certain fortunes by
dealing in provisions and other stores
than by mining.
"As usual, there are a number of lawless men among the immigrants, and
already reports of serious rioting have
come through."
The London Daily Telegraph tells of
riots and murders which never were as
" A private telegram received in London yesterday from Vancouver reports
that serious rioting has occurred near
Bitter Creek, the scene of the reported
discovery, and that the sheriff of the
district and a number of others has
been killed. This news is not at all
improbable. Mining rushes always
bring with them a number of reckless
and violent men, who spend a large
part of their lives away from civiliza
tion, and whose sense of law and order
has become atrophied from disuse.
"It is said that the sheriff who was
killed near Stewart was an Englishman, but no definite news is yet to
For exaggeration the following, which
appears in the Lloyd's newspaper,
is hard to equal. Lloyd's says:
"The goldfield itself is seventeen or
eighteen miles further inland from
Stewart, on Bitter Creek, which runs
into the Bear river. Here tented settlements have sprung up, and more
prospectors than it is possible to find
claims for are living a hand-to-mouth
existence, waiting for the privilege of
attacking the enormous gold deposit
and  wrestling  fortunes  from  the  hill.
"All kinds of vessels are being employed to take gold-seekers to Stewart, and the scenes on the Pacific coast
and in the vicinity of the new find are
strongly reminiscent of the earlier
Klondyke days. The conditions, however, at Bitter Creek, while rough,
are far better than those that obtained
at Klondyke. It is a thousand mites
further south, and being in a mining
division of Skeena, is under the immediate supervision of the British Columbian authorities.
"But the usual congestion and chaos
attending new gold fields obtain at Bitter Creek, Sailors have deserted their
ships, tradesmen their shops, workmen
their tools, and many are without adequate outfits and almost penniless.
"A few days ago two hundred Americans crossed the border at Portal,
Saskatchewan, intending to take up
land in the province of Alberta. They
had hardly crossed the border before
the news of the gold find at Bitter
Creek was poured into their eager ears.
With the exception of five, the   whole
party immediately abandoned their
journey to Vancouver.
"A party of Swedes passed through
Vancouver en route for the new El
Dorado. They had all hired themselves
out to farmers, but upon the news of
the great find thej left their work to
become gold diggers. .1 is stated that
in the town of Stewart the only people
left there are those who own shops,
houses, or hotels, and a few clerks in
shipping offices. A population of 5,000
has dwindled to a few hundred.s.
"Farmers throughout the western
provinces are complaining of the dearth
of farm hands, as even those they had
secured have left them for the luring
temptation  of gold  getting.
"The sudden inrush of gold-seekers
without proper preparations had the
immediate effect of increasing the price
of provisions, and many people are doing a roaring trade in conveying quantities of supplies by ship to Stewart
and from there overland.
"A private telegram received in London on Tuesday from Vancouver reports that serious rioting has occurred
near Bitter Creek, and that the sheriff
of the district and a number of others
had been killed."
The London Standard, of June 28, says:
"Unwonted activity prevailed yesterday at the offices of the agent-general
for British Columbia as the result of
the announcement of the discovery of
the gold reef near Stewart City, and
the staff were kept busy replying to
callers, numbering over forty, and answering letters. To those who asked
for official confirmation of the news
Mr. Turner, however, was only able to
quote the following reply, which he had
received to his cablegram to the government office at Victoria;
"Office has no definite information

Thursday, July 21
A few days ago when the Optimist drew attention to some grossly exaggerated
reports of the Stewart gold fields which were bejng published in the East and in
England, the wrath of some of Stewart's boosters was sent down upon the Prince
Rupert paper which essayed to tell the truth for Stewart's own good. Since then a
number of stories of fabulous wealth in the Portland canal district have floated
back to British Columbia from across the seas. Even the London Daily Telegraph,
one of the most conservative of papers, prints an article on "the mountain of gold
where a thousand stamp mills could be kept going for a quarter of a century."
Following this article are enquiries to brokers and agents in Rupert from England
asking whether this is true. Of course the exaggerated report has to be denied and
Stewart gets a black eye, for the denying of the false belittles the truth. The good
that exists in Stewart is buried with the bones of the evil. Stewart is good enough
to stand on facts and he who exaggerates or condemns the truth is an enemy of the
camp. False reports may bring about a stampede and a temporary boom but the
bad effect of the disappointment following will last a long time and be a barrier
to permanent and legitimate development.
Here is the way a well known sporting paper of England is already joking about
the camp:
"Have we thrown away a chance of becoming a multi-millionaire? Six or seven
years ago we were told of a rich gold field in British Columbia on the very ground
that is now being spoken of. We had 500 pounds sterling in a syndicate to buy
claims, and the late "New Broom" and the"Dwarf" were also in it. When, however,
we were told that tests revealed about 21 cwt. of gold to the ton of quartz we came
to the conclusion that it was too good, and so got out, as did our fellow subscribers.
It is now said that the mountain is solid gold, and that we have missed a chance of
becoming a second Mr. Fairie."
They May Be Uaed for Temporary
Fire System���Water Supply Getting Short and no More Services
or   Extensions   Will   be   Granted.
The city engineer reported as follows:
In refeard to the report of A. W.
Agnew re water main on Ninth avenue.
I concur in the suggestion to discontinue
putting in stand pipes.
In view of the shortage of water at
present, no extensions of the distribution system should be made, and only
such house services put in as are for
some   special   reason   necessary.
Three thousand feet of six inch pipe
with the necessary special castings
have been ordered by Messrs. Peck &
Moore, and are expected daily. It is
proposed to use this pipe oh Second and
Third avenues, the district which would
be covered by the Fire Protection
System, for which I am now preparing
an estimate.
I am in favor of discontinuing the use
of wooden stave pipe in the distribution
���system. It is possible, however, that
your council may decide to use this pipe
for temporary fire protection. In that
case, at least four hydrants would be
needed; I would therefore, recommend
that your decision as to how these pipes
shall be used be deferred for a few days
until I have completed my report and
estimate of the temporary fire protection
A number of plans of the city are in
the possession of the G. T. P., of which
we have no copies. Copies of these plans
are urgently needed. I would recommend
that draughtsmen be employed to make
copies of these plans at once, permission
has been obtained from Mr. Van Arsdol,
to proceed with this work.
The supply of water continues to
decrease. I have this afternoon ordered
a house to house inspection of plumbing
with the object of having all leaks from
this source stopped at once.
City Engineer.
Declarea it to Have Been One of
Greatest Matches Ever Played.
Rough Work on Both Sides-
Royal   City  Team   the  Stronger.
George W. Morrow returned from his
trip to Vancouver, Mrs. Morrow and
two children returning with him. He
had nothing to say of any big deals or
other financial enterprises having Prince
Rupert as the objective point, although
he may have been engaged in some.
What he seemed to take the most pleasure in talking about soon after he
landed was the big game of lacrosse
between the Montreals and the New
"The principal thing I saw during
my vacation," he said, "was the lacrosse match. I believe it to have been
one of the greatest games ever played
in the world. It certainly demonstrated
that the Westminster team was the best
and the strongest, although the Montreal
team picked from all over, was the best
ever sent across the continent.  ���
"The game was rought in spots, very
rough, and both sides made serious
charges against the other. As a matter
of fact it seemed to me that the honors
were about even on that score. It was a
game that kept the crowd howling with
escitement all the time.
"There must have been sixteen or
eighteen thousand people there. They
came from all over. I met men there I
had lost track of for years. I understand
the huge gate receipts were divided between the two teams. The greatest kind
of public interest centers in the game to
be played next Saturday, when it is
expected that the Montreal chaps will
make a better showing."

Will Be Used as a Work Shop When
The   New  Hall  Is  Built
When the matter of the fire hall and
water works shop came up at the council
meeting Aid. Pattullo suggested that the
bottom of the fire hall be fixed up as a
work shop.
Aid. Mobley said that it was out of
the question altogether. The present
fire hall is of the most temporary nature.
It is set in mud and on stumps and would
be altogether too inconvenient for the
men even if it were fixed up. The floor
of the hall will not begin to hold the
automobile and a new hall will have to
be constructed for that and then the old
hall can be used as water works shop.
The Mayor agreed with this and said
that if it was going to take so long to
get a site from the government to put
a cityjhall.'.fire hall or-any other building
on the council would simply take a
street end and put up a hall. He mentioned the lane along side the B. N. A.
Bank where the rock had been dumped.
That lane will not be used for many
years and it would be a fine place for a
fire hall.
It was then decided that nothing will
be done about a water works shop until
a new fire hall is erected.

A communication was read to the
council from Williams & Manson enclosing bill for extra fees in connection
with the city's business amounting to
$358.40.���Referred to the Finance committee.
Blocking the Streets
Aid. Barrow drew attention of the
council to the fact that a number of
persons were in the habit of leaving
their wagons, rigs etc on the streets at
night. This he considered a bad practice
as the streets were narrow enough without any of ��r obstacles.
As Aid rrow is on the Streets committee he was invited to take the matter
before his committee.
The City Engineer recommended that
the council grant no more water services
He pointed out that the supply is decreasing rapidly and except in most
urgent cases no more services should be
granted. The water supply is growing
Aid. Smith submitted an estimate of
the cost of temporary electric light
plant which he had had prepared,
the total amount was $5,850.

now claiming our attention, but shortly
work will be started an another section
lying immediately to the east of the
first one. No contract has yet been
awarded for this second section, but it
will not be long before one is let and work
will be started on it this year.
"At the eastern end of our line in
British Columbia we have not yet
started work. In one year's time we
will be working on the eastern end of
the road in this providce. We have
now a large working force building
westward into the Yellowhead from
Edmonton. Till that force reaches
British Columbia the eastern 'end of
the road in this province will not be
touched. It is essential to constru-
tion at that point that we should have
our rails laid westward from Edmonton.
"On the western end of the Canadian' Northern in British Columbia
construction may be undertaken at
many points owing to the accessibility of our route. This will make for
speedy work and I am confident we
will have the entire line completed a
year ahead of time."
Ha* Been Busy Looking; After Chimneys and  Stove  Pipe*
The Building Inspector has been
getting busy the past few days looking
after a number of things which will
tend to decrease the fire hazards in
the business district. He has secured
promises from nearly everyone who had
a defective chimney or a stove pipe on
the roof to put in proper chimneys at
once. He is alto looking after the
gasolene plants, and the next thing will
be the rubbish heaps, loose paper, straw,
boxes, etc., that are left lying in piles
or loose. It is thought with the building
inspector and the fire chief, the police
force should take a hand. It is much
easier for a cop to have things cleaned up
and straightened out than for any other
official. The average person respects,
or at least fears, instructions from the
police, while other official orders are
assented to and forgotten. It is time
now that a whole lot of those things
were looked after.
