The welcome to Prince Rupert's own
steamer "Prince Rupert" yesterday
was one that did honor to the city.
There were no great ceremonies in connection with it, no pomp or fuss and
feathers; but the business people welcomed the new business proposition
heartily. Ona o'clock was the time
she was due, and by that time the dock
was black with people. The tooting of
the steamer's whistle was heard soon
afterward, and she gracefully swung
into her home dock. As she did so
rousing cheers were given in her honor,
then for Captain Nicholson, the manager, Captain Johnson, her commander,
and W. P. Hinton, the general passenger agent of the company. The cheers
were heartily returned by the passengers and guests of the Prince Rupert.
As soon as the gangplank was out
the new steamer was boarded by a reception committee, representing the
city : Mayor Stork ; Aldermen Mobley,
Barrow, Mclntyre, Lynch, Hilditch,
Pattullo, Naden and Smith ; City Clerk
Woods; A. J. Morris, president of the
Board of Trade; H. H. Clarke, president of the Publicity Club; Wm. Man-
son, M. P. P. ; J. H. McMullin, J. P. j
W. C. C. Mehan, Grand Trunk superintendent of operations; A. E. McMaster,
Grand Trunk freight agent; and James
J. Rogers, general shipping agent.
The committee was welcomed on board
by Captain Nicholson and introduced to
the Grand Trunk Pacific officials and
the officers of the ship, and shook hands
with Mr. W. M. Law, one of the delegation sent to Seattle by the Publicity
Club to take possession of the vessel
there in the name of the City of Prince
Rupert. Then Mayor Stork hopped on
to the fo'cas'le skylight, doffed his hat
with a suggestive wave, and a hush immediately following, he said:
His Worship's Welcome.
"Captain Nicholson, and Ladies and
Gentlemen���On behalf of the city and
the citizens of Prince Rupert, I tender
to you and to your ship the Prince
Rupert the most hearty welcome on the
occasion of your first visit to our city.
There is probably no place in the world
where development is being carried out
quicker than in the northern part of
this province, and we, as citizens, simply desire to show that we are thoroughly alive to and warmly appreciate
the part your company is taking in the
development of this northern country
and in Prince Rupert. We hope you
will carry with you this endeavor to
show our sympathies are with you and
your company in your efforts to open
up Northern British Columbia and our
city, and our keen desire to in every
way reciprocate."
Captain Nicholson responded to the
following effect:
Response of the C.-ptain.
Mr. Mayor, gentlemen of the Council,
and ladies and gentlemen, ���
I am sure I appreciate very Bincerely
this most cordial and hearty welcome,
as well as those words of kindly appreciation which you have expressed upon
the first arrival of this ship. The statement you have made, Mr. Mayor, as
to the rapidity of the development of
this northern part of British Columbia,
Captain Johnson
and its future development, we of this
Company are firm believers in. We
have shown that faith in the building
and bringing here of this ship and in
the building of the railway along your
shores. Our company has been as
strong in their faith of the future
growth and prosperity of this part of
the country as have you people who
have come as pioneers then as citizens
and have formulated a municipal government so well represented by these
gentlemen. Our company's confidence
has been evidenced not only by the
large numbers of men now at work
along your shores building the railway,
but in the building of this ship, which
represents half a million dollars of
faith.   And I hope to have the pleas
ure of delivering to vou another ship, a
sister ship which will compare with this
in every respect: in strength and speed
and every feature of this vessel tending
to the safety, comfort and convenience
of those who patronize her.
We want Prince Rupert people to regard this as their ship and their line.
The people who are managing and operating the line for you are and will at
all times be in hearty sympathy with
Prince Rupert. Tempting offers have
been made the company to send these
boats in other directions, but we have
adhered to the idea which was the mo.
tive of building them and felt that they
must be devoted to the interests of this
terminal city. I assure you the officers
and crew of this vessel are in close ac
cord and sympathy with you and your
fortunes, and I hope you will often
enjoy the many advantages these vessels present, for I speak quite truly
and from my long experience when I
say they are the acme of perfection.
They present many advantages over
all other craft on the coast. It is a
saying: "There is nothing too good for
the Irish." Not that you are Irish,
but because the best people must be in
Prince Rupert.
The captain concluded by gallantly
presenting a large bouquet of cut flowers to each of the ladies of the reception committee and then invited all to
inspect the many advantages presented
by the new ship. He led the way from
room to room and proved to be a very
interesting lecturer.
All afternoon crowds of people walked
through and admired the superb fittings
and furnishings of the new boat, and
its many modern appliances for comfort
and convenience. Then most of thc
fair sex went home with their whole
thought engrossed on what they should
wear at the Publicity Club dance.
The dance in honor of the passengers
of the Prince Rupert was given in
Mclntyre Hall, which was tastefully
decorated for the occasion, the festoons
of flags and banners and masses of
evergreens and flowers being much enhanced by a number of large mirrors.
The latter were kindly lent by the Flax-
man & Brown Co., whose kindness
was also responsible for the elaborate
furnishing of the dressing rooms. It
was one of the largest attended and
most enjoyable social functions that
has ever been given in the city. Most
of the passengers from the boat were
present, including the leading officials
and officers, and when the ship's bugler
maiched into the hall and played a
" retreat-in-face-of-the-enemy " there
was general regret on the part of both
FRONTAGE TAX SYSTEM
WILL   BE   ADOPTED     FOR    ALL
ROAD WORK IN RUPERT.
Council Spent Two Nights Arguing
the Matter���Aid. Mclntyre Said
Aid. Lynch Was Inconsistent���
Work Will Start  in Section One.
CONTINUED ON PAGE  6
All street improvements, grading,
etc., in Prince Rupert, will be done on
the local improvement system. The
city fathers spent Jtwo evenings discussing the quickest, easiest and moBt
equitable way of getting the streets
put into shape, and they finally decided
that the frontage system was the only
safe one. Whether it will be a straight
frontage tax or whether the city as a
whole will be called upon to pay a
portion of the work has not been decided, although most of the aldermen
favor that idea, and the Municipal
Clauses Act allows the council to charge
50 per cent, of the local improvement
expenses to the general assessment.
The act also provides that if the proportion charged to the general assessment exceeds $15,000 a by-law must be
submitted to and passed by the property owners on a three-fifths majority
basis. That is a serious obstacle to
overcome, and puts the council in practically the same position as it would be
had the aldermen decided to adopt the
general assessment for all street work.
The objection to the latter system is
the fact that a by-law must be passed
by the people before the work can be
proceeded with, or before any money
can be borrowed.
A favorite scheme, and it was suggested by Aid. Smith, is to divide the
city into sections, as at present, and
make each of these sections a local improvement section, beginning with No.
1, and charging the total cost of putting
the streets in shape to the whole district according to the value of the
assessment and the benefit derived.
This might not be satisfactory to other
sections, but it will likely be tried in
Section 1.
The above is in brief the decision of
the aldermen after their talk on Tuesday night. The details will, however,
have to be worked out at a later
date.
At the meeting on Monday night
there were a couple of warm arguments. Aid. Hilditch forced the taxation issue upon the council, and that in
why the matter was seriously considered at this time. Aid. Lynch was right
at home. The frontage tax system is a
hobby with him and he spoke at great
length and several times on the subject.
Aid. Mclntyre replied to Aid. Lynch,
and pointed out to him several inconsistencies in his arguments. At one
time Aid. Lynch spoke as the honest
citizen, Wm. P. Lynch, and this was
the last time he appeared in the role of
pecial pleader of the frontage tax advocates. One time he urges a straight
frontage assessment and another he
advocates the city paying a portion.
Whichever system he figures will meet
with the most favor for the moment is
the one he talks about.
Mayor Stork was strong for frontage
tax. He believed it was the only equitable system.
All the aldermen expressed their
views and they finally decided on the
frontage tax system. THE    PRINCE   RUPER1    OPTIMIST

Letters to the Editor
Citizens Indignant
The following communications have
been received respecting the letter from
Port Essington attacking Constable
Fitzgerald.   It is signed by 22 citizens.
We, the undersigned residents of this
town have read with amazement and
indignation of the reported actionB of
Constable Fitzgerald in the recent fire
as per the "Optimist" of recent date.
We state positively right here that this
report is absolutely untrue from start
to finish and can only attribute same to
some very petty spite on the part of a
very mean and untruthful individual.
We would state that we are unaware
of any fight having occurred on that
night, and no man was knocked down
as reported. We would inform you that
Constable Fitzgerald worked very hard
and effectively on that night and great
credit is due him for doing so. Re the
complaints of the Indians several residents can testify that great reluctance
was shown on the part of the natives
to give any assistance whatever and
the case against Wedidahld was not
pressed. We think that Constable
Fitzgerald was thoroughly justified in
the course he took, and we trust that
no notice will be taken of such a contemptuous report as been written to
the before mentioned paper.
Prince Rupert, B. C,
June 14th, 1910.
The Editor, Prince Rupert Optimist:
Dear Sir,���In Saturday's issue you
print a letter from some person in which
several charges are made against Mr.
Fitzgerald of the Provincial Police,
Port Essington.
I was in Port Essington yesterday
and have been asked by such prominent
citizens of the river town as Mr. Kirby
of the Queen's Hotel, Capt. Alex.
Noble and others to take the earliest
opportunitp of denying the statements
made in that letter.
Great indignation was expressed over
these charges which are absolutely unfounded.
Those who were on the scene of the
conflagration and who took the principal part in fighting the flames have with
one voice expressed their appreciation
of the work which was done by Messrs.
Fitzgerald and McDonald.
This work by no means stopped when
the actual quelling of tne flames was
accomplished, but Mr. Fitzgerald continued his good work during the night
by looking after the property of those
whose homes had been in danger.
Trusting you will find space for this
in your valuable paper, I am,
Yours truly,
Robert Lowe.

S.S. PRINCE RUPERT
The arrival of the steamer Prince Rupert, the first of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Coast Fleet, at the city created by the Grand Trunk is one of the historical events. In later years���after the transcontinental road has sent its first
train steaming into the local station, and its first trans-Pacific greyhound into
our renouned harbor���the inaugural of the coast service will be set aside as a
minor event, but at the present time it looms large in the progress of our infant
city. The coast route is the only avenue of traffic now; it is the source of incoming wealth and outgoing advertising, which we anticipate will show as rapid
an increase in the future as it has in the past few busy months. And this coast
traffic will never grow less, but always increase. Though the traffic east and
west will be the major trade in years to come, the coast trade will always be a
big factor in Prince Rupert's commerce. No one realizes this better than the
company which has built such magnificent steamers to accommodate it.
The splendid size, the graceful lines, the speed and power and the excellent
equipment of the Prince Rupert is another evidence of the statement that the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway and steamship lines will be the best and most
modern in the world���a credit to the company and the nation behind it. It is
carrying out their announced policy of building the very best that ingenuity and
money can buy. At the present time these big boats are superior to the trade,
but it is proof that the company have faith, in the rapid development of traffic.
The Prince Ruperts should be proud of each other.
A correspondent suggests that the city council advertise in the Vancouver,
Seattle and a number of other outside papers for tenders for sprinkling carts.
We suspect that he is interested in real estate.
Just like the proverbial youngster Prince  Rupert had to tfut up meteorological tantrums when we had visitors and wanted its best behavior.
NOW  SUING DUNSMUIR.
Claim of Four Millions and Charge
of Conspiracy.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, June 15.���A suit for four
millions was begun yesterday by Croft
and others against Dunsmuir, alleging
conspiracy in regard -to the sale of
option on coal lands. The claimants
contend that Dunsmuir gave a second
option to cloud the first. Dunsmuir's
reply is that the first option had become void.
Jail Delivery Plot
Pittsburg, N. Y., June 15. ���(Special)
���Convicts managed to smuggle a quantity of dynamite into Clinton penitentiary, and put in charges of it. But
the explosion, although doing much
damage, failed to effect a jail delivery.
There was a determined outbreak, but
the guards succeeded in quelling it.
CRASHED INTO RIVER
Another Joy  Ride   That    Ends   In
Untimely Death.
Portland, Ore., June 15.-"Frisco"
Day, a well-known chauffeur, accompanied by Mabel Monta, a woman who
had lately secured her divorce in order,
it is rumored, to wed with Day, were
out on a joy ride last night. Both had
been drinking and the man is said to
have been drunk.
Crossing the bridge spanning the
Oregon slough at a high rate of speed
the machine swerved and crashed
through the guard rail into the slough.
When the wrecked car was fished out,
the speedometer showed sixty-five
miles an hour. The bodies have not
been found. They were probably carried out by the tide.

STOPS THE BIG FIGHT
Doubtful If  It Will   Come  Off   in
California Now
San Francisco, June 16.���Governor
Gillette has issued an order prohibiting
the Jeffries-Johnson fight and has instructed the attorney general to take
the necessary steps to prevent it. It is
now doubtful if the event will come off
here, and if not it may go to Salt Lake
or Reno. A test case will be made of
the Langford-Kauffman battle which is
fixed for Saturday. If the authorities
stop that the big event is off so far as
California is concerned.
It is said the governor headed off the
fight because had it been permitted the
exposition to commemorate the opening
of the Panama Canal would have gone
to New Orleans.

City Prosecutor
Williams & Mason wrote the council
Tuesday night asking to at once prepare for the appointment of a city prosecutor. If the city desires them to
handle it they would expect to receive
a handsome remuneration for their services as it plays havoc with their clients
in police court and in the criminal
court.
The aldermen thought that the city
solicitors should look after the necess*
ary prosecutions for the  city  at the
remuneration they are now receiving.
The matter was referred to the  Finance Committee to report on.

Description of New Steamers.
The following description  has  been
teived of the two new and splendid-
' equppecl   twin    screw    steamers
nee Rupert" and Prince    George"
service from  Puget   Sound,   Vic-
���j and  Vancouver   to   Prince   Ru-
ett, the  Western   Terminus   of   the
'd Trunk Pacific Railway,  which

Lortant  western   Canadian   seaport,
lj,r the shortest   ''round   the   world"
service  by   the   "All   Red
���toria
These beautifully designed and
steamers when entered into
Lice, will not only be two of the
Ingest and fastest vessels of their
diss on the Western coast, but also
tio of the most handsome in their
lstside appearance and interior dec-
Ifltions, the whole scheme of design
! ornamentation having been most
Isrefully considered and artistically
lorried out by the builders, Messrs
���Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson,
lud., Wallsend-on-Tyne, England, un-
Ider the able supervision of the com-
Ipuiy's naval architect, Mr. R. L. New-
\m.

I space for about 1500 excursionists.
[ Crew: 84,
The vessels are rigged as two masted fore and aft, schooners with three
funnels, and their straight stems and
i founded cruiser  sterns   give   them   a
| 'Oy smart and graceful appearance

��n shelter and shade decks are

spacious accommodation for the first

iterate and tastefully decorated
Wbhc rooms which are a special ft*
m of tho vessels.
The upper deck house is designed
as to give ample promenade walk

^ m7��a,m constr"cted of heavy
steel piS     l"ies  and  beams  and
steel, tested at the mills, and strong
enough to pass the most rigid requirements in chemical, ductile and tensile
qualities.
A cellular double bottom is fitted
for a considerable distance amidships
divided into eight compartments, an
these together with specially arranged
trimming tanks of large capacity enable the vessel to carry over 600 tons
of water ballast, beside affording increased security against founding.
Water-Tight Bulkheads
The hull itself, is divided by watertight bulkheads into nine compartments, so that the safety of the vessel in the event of any compartment
being damaged is assured. Steel bulkheads extending to the main deck
completely separate the freight space
from the parts of the ship occupied by
the passengers and crew.
With careful. consideration for the
comfort of the passengers, to prevent the
vessels rolling, large bilge keels are
fitted for a considerable length on
each side. There are five decks,
namely, lower, main, shelter, shade
and boat decks, the main and shelter decks being of steel for a considerable length amidships and sheathed
with wood, the other decks being of
wood with steel tie plates.
A complete installation of artificial
ice and refrigerating plant is fitted in
conjunction with cold storage chambers of about 4500 cubic feet capacity
for carrying ships provisions.
The life saving equipment, and fire
extinguishing apparatus���always such
an important feature on passenger
vessels���have had special attention
and are fitted in accordance with the
strictest regulations and requirements
of the British Board of Trade and
Canadian law.
Brilliantly   Illuminated
The vessels will be brilliantly illuminated with a complete installation
of electric light, which enters largely
into the general scheme of decoration
and the necessary power will be provided by three large generating sets
fitted in the engine space. In connection with this installation which is
on the most-up-to-date and efficient
lines, electric bells are fitted in all the
passengers' and officers' cabins, with
indicating board in suitable position,
also a very powerful searchlight fitted
on the foremast.
A general system of wireless telegraph, capable of being operated
from storage batteries, independent of
the dynamos, is also installed so that
constant communication may be kept
up with stations on shore.
The whole of the decorative wood
work has been executed by the builders, and the various styles adopted
have been treated in a broad and free
manner, and by judicious selection
and arrangement of the various woods
employed in the decorative scheme,
the natural beauties of the woods are
utilized to the best effect.
The coloring throughout is in one
inclusive scheme of mahogany, oak,
and sycamore with soft green, rose,
old gold, ivory and pure white, the
whole being carried out with artistic
taste, and giving the most eye-enchanting effects.
Dainty Interior Fittings
Entering by the first class gangway
on the shelter deck, passengers pass
through a large vestibule panelled in
flat ivory white, the floor being laid
with very effective black and white
indiarubber interlocking ties. From
the centre of this cabin at the forward end a grand stairway leads to
the cabins on the shade deck above,
where are located the first class smoke
room and observation room, at the
after and forward ends, respectively.
In the after part a similar stairway
leads from ladies room to cabins above
and also down to first-class dining saloon on the main deck aft. These magnificent stairways are of polished mahogany guarded with an ornamental
wrought iron balustrade with mahogany handrail, enriched with large gilt
emblematical maple leaves, and at the
half landing is fitted a large mirror in
carved frame. Overhead is a handsome skylight with artistic stained
glass panels and ornamental 5 light
candelabra with pear shaped cut
glass globes, the whole stairway being beautifully finished, tastefully
decorated, airy and well lighted.
On each side of the vessel extends a
wide and roomy well ventilated fore
and aft corridor panelled in ivory
white, ornamented with suitably enriched moulding heated by steam radiators and effectively laid all over
with rose Axmmster carpet, the whole
forming a splendid and imposing interior promenade.
The general equipment of the vessels of the most ample description,
and ...eir comfortable appointments
and luxurious accommodation should
ensure their being among the most
popular in the Pacific Coast service.
NEW  PASTOR MARRIED.
Rev. C.    R.    Sing   Is   Bringing His
Bride to Rupert This Week.
Rev. Charles Richard Sing, who was
appointed by the General Conference of
the Methodist Church to the charge in
Prince Rupert, will arrive here this
week with his bride to assume the duties
of his new pastorate. Rev. Mr. Sing
was married on June 1, and the following notice from an exchange will be of
interest here :

RE-DECKING THE STREETS.
Streets     Committee     Recommend
iii Calling, for Tenders.
In reference to street repairing Aid.
Lynch and Aid. Hilditch advocated to
the council on Tuesday night re-decking
all the principal streets with fur, and
suggested that1 tenders for large quantities of fir and spruce be called for.
As a result the Streets and Works Committee was asked to bring in a report.
Aid. Hilditch complained that the
Streets and Works Committee was
criticized too often by members of the
council.
Aid. Pattullo took occasion to correct
Aid. Hilditch and stated that the Streets
Committee was not criticized. On the
other hand Aid. Hilditch criticized some
of the other committees on occasions
with considerable severity and with
little to justify him.

m THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
LINE  TO   STEWART
Board     of    Trade    Discusses   Wire
Connection  for  New Town.
The question of a wire communication between this city and Stewart was
discussed at some length before the
board of trade at its meeting Monday
night. A committee has already been
at work for some time upon the Subject
and President A. J. Morris laid the
several projected routes for the line
before the board. The one he thought
the most of and which the board has
the most favorable opinion of is a line
up the Kitsumkalum valley across the
divide into the vale of the Naas and to
Alice Bay or Portland Inlet. This was
the least expensive of the land routes
suggested, and it presented less glaciers
to overcome. Furthermore it passed
through a very fine agricultural country
which would be largely settled up in a
year or two. Taking the latter point
into consideration, and as the government would have to give the people of
those valleys wire communication a
little later in any event, that route
seemed to offer the most advantages
both in point of cost and the value of
the facilities it presented.
It also offered certain advantages to
Prince Rupert, pointed out the President, as by this line the city would retain all the business from Stewart and
the rapidly developing districts along
the Skeena. Minister Templeman, the
Member of Parliament for this district,
was now in Victoria and the board's
secretary might write to him on the
subject. But as Mr. Phelan, superintendent of government telegraph lines,
was now in the city and had been conferred with by members of the board,
it might be well to await until that
gentleman had made a careful survey
of all the suggested routes for telegraphic communication with Stewart.
In these suggestions of the president
the board expressed its entire concurrence.
ous and as rich as anything yet discovered in the district, and systematic
development work, he says, will start
immediately on the various properties.
The management of the company is
active and progressive, and the intention is to build a dividend paying corporation from the present substantial
nucleus.
