The Princess May arrived this morn'
I ing with a number of excursionists for

Optimist Sends a Friendly Message
Blake Wilson, western manager for
P. Burns & Co., to-day closed a deal
which has been in progress for some time,
with the firm of L. Morrow & Co. for the
purchase of their entire northern business. This includes the Prince Rupert
and the Stewart markets. P. Burns & Co.
are by far the largest meat dealers in
western Canada and their coming in here
shows the confidence the firm has in
Prince Rupert.
They will immediately erect one of the
largest cold storage plants on the coast.
It will be located on the waterfront and
with trackage.
L. Morrow & Co. have been in business
in this country for eleven years. Their
Prince Rupert market on the water front
was the first store in this city.    The

WATER DROPPED  A FOOT.
Melting   Snow,   Fallen   Trees   and
Drift Wood Cause of Rise.
From the steamer bulletin it will be
seen that the water in the canyon has
fallen a foot during the past 24 hours.
It is still four feet eight inches above
zero and it is impossible for the steamers
to go either up or down. They can not
even navigate the little canyon at three
feet above zero. Some of the boats will
chance a passage, but not at the present
height. The cause of the present sudden
rising is the snow melting on the mountains and the freshet carrying the fallen
trees and drift wood down to the canyon
where it forms a dam and backs the water
UP. It is not expected that the high
water will last more than a day or two.

was formally opened to the public yest-
day when The Optimist sent the following message to the Vancouver press.
"The citizens of Prince Rupert and
the Optimist send greetings over- the
first wireless from this port."
The new station on Digby Island has
been completed for some time, but the
cable to the Government wire office here
just complete. The work since C. P.
Edwards was called East has been in
charge of C. M. Mclntyre who will
remain here a few days yet. The regular
operator will be D. A. Cameron, who
lives at the station. He will be given an
assistant and the station will then be
open from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Commercial message may be sent by
wireless at the same rate as by wire. In
case of a ten word message 25c goes to
the wire system for the cable dispatch

May's Landing, N. Y., May 27���In
despite the strong circumstantial evidence brought forward by the police,
the jury last night, much to the surprise
of the crowded court room, brought in
a verdict of acquittal in the case or murder charged against William Saylor,
and he was set at liberty. The strongest
evidence in the case was the evidence
of his sweetheart, who make a confession
about a week after Saylor's arrest
when she herself was in custody for complicity in the crime. Although the prosecuting attorney tried to make out that
her testimony was the result of jealousy
he weakened it but a trifle apparently,
yet the jury seems to have thought
differently.

London, May 27���[Special]���Hon. A.
B. Aylesworth, minister of justice,
before leaving for the Hague yesterday,
to appear before the inernational tribune in the case of the Newfoundland
fisheries, emphatically denied that Canadian representatives had been snubbed
at King Edward's funeral. He declared
that, on the contrary, they had been
most royally treated in every respect.

Saylor inveigled her to his room in New
York City and she disappeared. Saylor
was suspected and a search of his room
appeared to show that he had murdered
the girl there, dismembered her and
burned the body and clothing bit by
bit in the stove. His sweetheart in her
confession described the state of the
room when she entered it shortly after
the disappearance of Miss Adams.
The case created a profound sensation
in New York, especially after the publication of a number of inveigling letters
the prisoner had sent to the deceased
and other young girls, and the verdict,
to the reading public is both a surprise
and a disappointment.
The city council decided last night
as a result of their discussion on the
water supply question, to have engineers Agnew and Clements stake 300
inches of water on Woodworth lake
for the city's water supply and for the
engineers to take such action as was
necessary to have it properly recorded.
This is the first step towards getting the
permanent water supply settled.
The council will not consent to pay
the Prince Rupert Light and Power
company anything as it is not believed
that the company has any rights
Woodworth and Shawatlans lakes,
and if they have it is only after the city's
reserve of 300 inches is taken out.
The meeting last night was especially
to consider the water supply question.
There were present, Mayor Stork and
all the aldermen, as well as Engineers
Clements and Agnew and the city solicitors, Messrs. Williams and Manson.
City solicitor Manson thanked the
mayor and council for the confidence
shown in his firm in placing them in
the position of solicitors. They would
do their utmost to give the city the
very best legal advice obtainable. They
would spare neither time, effort or money
in carrything this out. The work of
the council during the next six months
would be the most important of all and
they felt the responsibility of their
position. In reference to the water
question, he said that Mr. Williams
was more conversant with it than he
and he would get Mr. Williams at
once. He had been unavoidably delayed.
Street   Committee.
Aid. Lynch, on behalf of the Streets
committee read a report bearing on the
water question. In part, the report
was that the temporary employment,
of street inspectors be referred to the-
temporary engineer. That A. W. Agnew
had consented to act in an advisory capacity for the regular fees, viz,- $15
per day, except when he had to go out
of the city.
Action was deferred on the report,,
until the regular meeting.
W. E. Williams entered and learned
the intention of the meeting from the
mayor. ;

The
The Steamer Nanoose arrived in Port
this morning about 10 o'clock towing
material for the Dominion Bridge Co.,
which has the contract for the Zanardi
Rapids bridge. This is the last of the
material and it is now being transferred
from the scows to the cars ready to be
run up to the rapids. The cargo consisted
of between 500 and 600 tons.
Meet  Saturday   Night.
After a very strenuous week, the aldermen decided to take a holiday to-night,
so they will not meet until Saturday
night.
Aid. Mobley presented a partial
report from the Water and Fire committee which threw some light on the question and gave the mayor and aldermen
a lot of information. A letter from
William Manson, M. P. P., was read,
stating that the city's water supply was
safe. A letter was also enclosed from
Robert C. Tatlow confirming Mr. Man-
son's letter. The leservation for the 300
inches for the city was made in February 1907. A letter written by Wm.
Manson when he was afsistant commissioner of lands was read, objecting to
any water records being granted on
Ka-ien Island until the city of Prince
Rupert had been provide d for.
A. W. Agnew explained a report made
by Mr. Wilmott, an engineer, on the
waters of this island. He stated that
they decided that Woodworth lake was
the only one suitable for this city as a
gravity supply. There was another
possible source of supply from two branch

FROM THE ISLANDS.
Captain  Locke, of the Amur,  Had
Heavy Weather Crossing Straits.
The Amur arrived on Monday from
Queen Charlotte Islands, and her captain says he experienced very heavy
weather crossing the Hecate straits last
but that no damage was done except that
one or two restless passengers were tossed out of their berths.
Ike Thompson, the mining operator,
was a passenger on the Amur on his way
to Vancouver, in connection with a deal
of some Portland Canal Mining property.
The islands have been having beautiful weather and there is everywhere a
great deal of business activity. The
Moresby Island sawmill is running
double shift, and has a pile of lumber on
the wharf waiting to be shipped by the
Petriana to the Westholme Lumber
company at Prince Rupert.
Mining interests are looking well. The
diamond drill at the Ikeda Bay mines
is still running and continues to show
encouraging results. Among the Amur's
passengers, on her way to Vancouver,
was W. H. Parsons, who has been
visiting his mining property on Collision
Bay to make arrangements for resuming
active operations.

We   accepted   his   toil   as   our   right;
None spared, none excused him;
When he was bowed by his burden his
rest was refused him.
We troubled his age with our weakness,
The blacker our shame.
When he heard that his people had need
of him,
Straightway he came to us.
As receive, so he gave, nothing grudged,
naught denying,
Not e'en the last gasp of his breath
when he strove for us,
Dying for our sakes without question,
He put from him all that he cherished.
Simply as any that served him he served,
and he perished.
All that Kings covet was his, and he
flung it aside for us,
Simply as any that died in his service, he
died for us.    Rudyard Kipling.

FIRST WHITE WOMAN
M Fort George Solve. Knotty Point
Between Two Claimants.
The first-white-woman-question in
fort George is settled and is now a matter
I history. There may be difference of
opinion in respect to the discovery of the
Lth Pole and also to the merits and
merits of townsites, but regarding the
|irst woman in Fort George there is no
doubt. We have three. They all came
on the SS. Quesnel last Sunday, and from
appearances there was an evident desire
��� the part of the three to land first. But
Mrs. M. V. Halm held the gang plank,
and as she had five handsome and bright
children en train, she was accorded the
position she deserved and walked off the
boat amid a bombardment of cameras
and well-wishers' salutations. The royal
photographer was there and The Tribune
��-ill at some future time reproduce the
group.
The townsite company had in vew the
giving of a lot to the first white woman
landing' and 'residing' in Fort George.
But the first woman to land, Mrs. Halm,
in company with her husband, went
direct to their pre-emption in the
Nechaco valley.
This was believed to have disqualified
te from receiving a lot, and making
Mis. G. Howser the benefiary, she being
the seconf woman to walk off the boat,
id who has taken up her residence here.
Things appeared complicated for a time;
but eventually, through the urbanity and
diplomatic suavity of the townsite representative here, W. F. Cooke, the matter
has been adjusted satisfactorily to both
claimants, and a lot apiece has been
granted them. There ends possibly one
of the most delicate questions in the
annals of Fort George. The lots presented are:
To Mrs. M. V.Halm���lot 16, block 9,
S. D. 933.
To Mrs. G. Howser���lot 17, block 9,
S. D. 933.
They may   be   neighbors   in   time.
Board of Trade Organized.
Fort George has organized a board
of trade. Its permanent officers are:
President, A. G. Hamilton, Vice-President, W. D. Kennedy, Secretary-Treasurer, W. F. Cooke, Executive Committee:
J. Vincent Shaw, W. J. Mackay, W. F.
Cooke, W. D. Kennedy and A. G. Hamilton.
Two Articles of Commerce.
Shaving costs 25c in Fort George.
Whisky is not sold here, because the
people who make up the rising city are
Christians[with 3 exceptions] and don't
believe in wrecking humanity and stunting the growth of succeeding generations.
We believe the Attorney-General takes
the view toat if liquor is not sold and the
government does not receive a license fee
a constable is not necessary.
Land Staking Contests.
The executive committee of the Fort
George Board of Trade is making preparations for a First of July celebration
in which will be introduced some novel
features.
In proposed list of sports is included
land-staking races for civilians, land-
staking races for provincial land surveyors, and townsite-staking races for town-
site promoters. A well-defined limit will
be set apart for this purpose. Four posts
of the regulation size will be a condition
exacted in these tourneys, and good
clean work will count 90 points. In the
last class, foreign promoters, with no
knowledge of the country will be barred.
Fur Becoming Scarce.
With the advent of the settler and
surveyor, the trapper has become uneasy.
He views with alarm the inroads made
into a country that formerly knew of no
noise other than that of the cayote
and wolf, the honk of the wild goose and
the call of the mallard. The trapper
cares little for railroads, and less for that
disturbing element which accompanies
the construction of a transcontinental
road through a country peopled so spar
sely as northern British Columbia is.
The decrease in fur production is quite
noticeable in Fort George, and A. G.
Hamilton announces a considerable
falling off from last year in this respect.
He does not expect it to be within $2000
of what it was last year. Following is a
shipment he sent out recently: Ninety-
eight marten, 22 mink, 17 fisher, 8 lynx,
6 otter, 40 weasels, 90 beaver, 4 bear,
150 muskrats.���Fort George Tribune.
Interested in Fort George.
The Mercantile Trust Co. of Vancouver finds a universal interest being taken
in the Fort George district. This interest,
it seems, is not confined to Vancouver or
the Pacific Coast even, but reaches all
corners of the continent.

Wireless for Stewart.
Instructions have been issued by
C. P. Edwards, superintendent of wireless for the Dominion of Canada, to make
some tests on Portland Canal in neighborhood of Stewart with the object of
finding out if it would be possible to
operate a wireless station at that point.
These tests will be carried out at once
and if successful a station will be at once
erected in order to put the new mining
communitty in touch with the rest of
the world. At present there is no telegraph
communication. Portland Canal is
badly land-locked and some doubt is
expressed as to the feasibility of tee
scheme.
A series of stations up the canal for
he purpose of relaying messages has
been suggested but this would be very
expensive and until the experiments
have been made nothing can be decided.
Should it be found impossible to bring
the place into wireless communication
with the rest of the coast, it is understood that the telegraph wire to Dawson
will be tapped and a branch run into
Stewart.

ALBERTA'S NEW PREMIER.
The turning over of the Government of Alberta from Rutherford to Clifford
Sifton is a good strategic move by the Liberals. The Hon. Clifford Sifton is accustomed to big jobs ancl ;irobably no other man could save that government for his
party. Hon. Clifford Sifton is one of the most talented politicians Canada has ever
had. His policy of developing the prairie provinces was'one of progress and success.
He opened the west and advertised it as it was never done before, or since. Unfortunately all his energies were not devoted to the upbuilding of Canada. Like
many B����ther successful politician he was not satisfied with the emoluments of
office unci (he appreciation of his party. He believed in helping himself, and he did.
His fortu���� is now many millions, and the basis of it was in the advantage he had
in his public office Hon. Clifford Sifton is a clever man, but an expensive one.
However, it has been said of him that Canada could afford to pay him $100,000 per
annum for his services, and if Alberta can pay the price he will probably be a profitable investment for that pfovince. In a year or two, Edmonton , the seat of
the Alberta government, will be only a day's journey away���the closest city neighbour of Prince Rupert. The policy of the new premier will thus be watched here
with more than common interest. Like 'ill successful men, Clifford Sifton has many
enemies in his own camp and many admirers without. He has, in the past, proved
himself bigger than his critics and his ascendency to the control of Alberta's administration will be marked with applause and optimism.
The expressed opinion of the new city council and city solicitor that the
city's claim on the water of Shawatlans and Woodworth lakes cannot be overridden by the Prince Rupert Light and Power Company, is rather a quick change
from the election criticism of Manson and McBride. It is probably an unintentional compliment to the Provincial Government and its   local representative.

OUTSIDERS ARE BUYING.
Prince   Rupert   Agencies   Have   Put
Through Several Small Sales.
Real estate continues to improve and
more sales are being reported daily. Out
side money is coming in more rapidly
and that is what is needed. Yesterday,
Prince Rupert Agencies reported the
sale of several properties to outside parties. Lot 11, block 6, sectnn 1 was sold
for $2,000. to D. Helm of Idaho,. The
same gentlemen also bought lots 9 and 10
in block 18, section 7 for $1,400. W. C.
Nicholls of Minnaopolis bought lots
22 and 23, block 30, section 8 for $600.
Otto Allshuler of Comox, B. C. bought
lots 7 and 8, in block 37, section 8 for
$600. One or more men are now on
their way from Idaho to invest money
in Prince Rupert real estate.
Queen Charlotte Notes.
Mrs. Cochrane was a passenger on the
Amur for Victoria and Vancouver to
select a stock of groceries for her new
store. She is expected back next week,
and it is said that the cost of living in
Queen Charlotte will then take a sudden
drop.
Nothing has yet been definitely
decided in regard to the proposed new
wireless station at Lawn Hill, in the
neighborhood of Queen Charlotte City,
but it is very probable that this work will
be done during the present summer.

IwiLL STAKE 300 INCHES.

i of a stream flowing into Shawatlans
To pump for temporary supply, the
mter could be brought from Shawatlans
lake A thirty inch pipe line, 15,000
feet long would cost $80,000. This does
not include the pumping station.
Mr. Agnew stated in reply to Aid.
Hilditch that Mr. Woodwork's record
covered all the water in Woodworth lake
and streams flowing out of Shawatlans
lake, and even more than he could get
from these waters at low water.
Solicitor's Opinions.
Mr. Williams was then asked to address the council. He said that the first
application of the company was put in
prior to the reserve. But the reserve
for 300 inches for the city was made
before the company's record was granted.
The question was which had the first
right. The city's reserve stated that the
city was not to go to Woodworth lake,
or the streams tributary thereto, unless
an efficient water supply could not be
reasonably secured from Shawatlans
lake. Before going to Woodworth lake
tie city must prove to the satisfaction
cl the executive that the other sources
wte not possible.
(Then asked, the Premier said that
lie would have no hesitation in stating
that if a gravity supply could not be
secured from Shawatlans lake, then the
city could go to Woodworth. Next
the company must have their undertaking approved by the Lieutenant-
Governor in Council. The company was
also subject to time limit in beginning
operations. The company secured the
approval in 1908. The company was to
start work and have $25,000 capital sub-
cribed by March 1909. This they failed
to do and applied in March 1909 for' an
extension of one year from March 16th
1910 and not having to start work until
a year from May 1909.
Mr. Williams stated that it was a
question whether the company had any
rights whatever on Woodworth or Shawatlans lakes. They should not have
been given an extension of time, although they were given an extension under
the old act.
The option given by the company to
Prince Rupert gentlemen provided that
company must produce a    good
the
and proper title. To do that the company
would have to go before the courts to
prove it.
General Discussion.
Aid. Hilditch strongly favoured staking the 300 inches at once.
Aid. Mobley did not think that there
was the remotest doubt but that the
city would get that 300 inches and to
Wove that it was the only water supply,
"hat bothered him was that 300 inches
Wjud supply only 70,000, and this City
will be larger than that. What would the
city do then?
,TJie mayor did not think that the
Clt5's Position     would  be  prejudiced
at a" by staking that 300 inches.

TRADE OF THE NORTH.
Increased Number of Vessels Touch*
ing at Prince Rupert.
Northern British Columbia and the
Yukon Territory are entering upon a
period of unprecedented activity. This is
due, we understand, not only to internal
prosperity but to the exceeding rapid
influx of poulation and capital from
outside points. In these two supremely
important factors, the north is this summer singularly fortunate. Every steamer
that leaves Vancouver, Seattle, San
Francisco and Victoria, to say nothing
of the many other shipping ports on
the Coast, bears its contribution of men,
money, and supplies. Not a day passes
in the north without the cargo of a ship
leaving the docks covered with bundles
of personal effects, groups of new comers;
and scores of busy conveyances. We can
draw but one conclusion from all this.
The great northern country is witnessing an area of development and industrial progress that, even for it, is marvellous.
If not, why the tremendous number of
commercial enterprises now being started or increased from their present size.?
Why the interest in mining, fishing and
shipping that is just now acting as a
magnet to capital from every city in
America, and is drawing men of experience and ability from every walk in life?
Such capital is not expended, such men
are not recruited, in our opinion, for any
'fly-by-night' or 'wildcat' scheme. It is
the lure of the northern gold; that strange
irresistible call that draws men to it no
matter where they be. The new towns,
the gold specked river sands, vast spaces
of mountain and plain, rushing river
torrents, weird, silent, lonely places,
want men, and they send forth their
voices to civilization for them.
It is true that, at the beginning of
every season, men rush north. But it is
just as true that this season's operations
are vastly larger than any since the fam-
ous'rush' fourteen years ago. The significant part of the operations, as we see
them, is the fact that so many permanent
townsites are being staked out and settled, and so many new cities are
being built.
We point to Prince Rupert, Port George,
Stewart, Port Essington, and a host of
others. They indicate the remarkable
growth of the province in all sections.
Going further north, take into consideration the mining properties that are
being exploited, with every facility that
modern engineering skill can suggest,
in the neighborhood of Dawson.--Opportunities.

Alaska   Northern   Will   Extend   Its
System With  It.
John Ballaine, one of the principal
promoters of the Alaska Central, now
known as the Alaska Northern Railway, has secured the exclusive right of
Brennan's monorail for Alaska and he
intends to organize a company at once.
He plans to build a system from Mile
29 on the Alaska Northern Railway to
Moose Pass. If practicable the system
will be extended from Moose Pass to
Fairbanks.
Mr. Ballaine says he has seen practical demonstrations of the working of
the monorail cars and he knows that they
can be operated successfully as far as
Moose Pass. He believes that the monorail cars will revolutionize railroading
in Alaska and provide the best means for
finally covering the territory with
railroads to all the main centers of
population. He says the cost is not to
be compared with that of building standard guage railroads.
Railway For Iditarod.
A syndicate of New York capitalists,
headed by A. L. Scheur, have acquired
the right of way of the Alaska Short Line
and will send a corps of engineers north
to being operations in railroad building. It is their intention to have the road
completed from Iliamna to Kuskokwim,
tapping the Innoka and Iditarod in 1911.
Compressor for Stewart.
The Portland Canal Mining Company
is arranging for the purchase andinstall-
ation of a compressor plant at an early
date.
New Whaling Station.
A new industry, which will rival anything on the Coast at the present time,
is about to be opened on the Queen Charlotte Islands. It is known as the Queen
Charlotte Whaling Company, the incorporation of which is now being proceeded with. The capital is from Vancouver
and Victoria, and some first-class business men are said to be associated with
it.
Light for Stewart.
Piping, lighting and pumping plants
and a boiler have arrived here for the
Stewart-Portland Canal Light, Water and
Power Company. This is to serve temporarily for the wants of the town pending
the installation of a hydro-electric plant
next year on the Marmot River, where a
where a large water right has been secured. Then the company will sell power
to the various mines.
Owing to the presence of glacial mud
and other impurities in the creeks, a
water supply will be secured by sinking
wells from which the water will be pumped to a reservoir and thence distributed
by gravity. G. K. Williams, consulting engineer, is here with the plant and
will direct the installation work. The
reservoir will have a capacity of 30,000
gallons.
The   directors   are   Messrs.   R.   M.
Stewart, Harry Howson, William Piggott,
Victoria;   William   Noble,   George   K.
Williams, and S. Garnham of Stewart.

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
but 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.

Benefit of the Citizens.
for
Aid. Mobley is responsible for the
council issuing instructions to Engineer
Agnew to have a couple of s^and pipes
erected at Hays Cove for the benefit
of the forty odd families living in that
locality and who need water.fS The
alderman pointed out that the present
supply from the little creek was getting
very low. A number of houses were
drained into it and the water in the creek
is not high enough to carry it away.
He stated that a couple of stand pipes
would enable the residents to secure pure
water for drinking purposes and for
all purposes which they might desire to
use it for.

Juneau's Political Squabble.
Wickersham has filed charges protesting against the removal of Sutherland and Boyce. He asserts that they
were removed on false and secret information furnished by the attorneys and
lobbyists for the Alaska Syndicate
Katalla Company, aided therein by
Governor Walter E. Clark, of Alaska.
The charges assert that the officials
were removed in order to prevent
Sutherland and Boyce from securing
the indictment and conviction of John
Carson and Captain D. H. Jarvis for
bribery and corruption of witnesses and
jurors in the case of the United States
vs.   Ed.   C.   Hasey.

FIRST CONCRETE BLOCK.
R. C. Hyde Will Award The Contract
In  Two Weeks.
R. C. Hyde of Los Angeles is in the
city in connection with his local properties and the new building he will shortly
have started. Mr. Hyde expects to let
the contract for the construction of a
concrete block of stores at the corner of
Third Avenue and Seventh Street in
about two weeks. He is receiving bids
from the contractors now and in a few
days he will make a trip to Spokane and
back and will then award the contract.
The prospects are that this building will
be the first of the permanent buildings
to be erected here. Once this class of
structure is started others will follow
rapidly. Mr. Hyde has had'.considerable
experience in building and has some
valuable properties in other cities. This
block will at present be only one storey
but the foundation and walls will be heavy enough to carry a three storey building for which the plans have been made.
The second and third floors will be added
as required.
New Hot el Started.
Work has been started on the foundation for Bird's new hotel at the corner
of Fraser and Sixth Streets.
