Prince Rupert, B.C.. Tuesday,  July 26, 1910.
Price, Five Cents
FIRST BOAT FROM THE ORIENT
(it Will Bring Six Thousand
Tons of Cement
[ Str. Inverskip Sails from Hong Kong
Today With Full Cargo for Foley,
Welch and Stewart.���Largest Boat
To Enter Prince Rupert's Harbor.
The Str. Inverskip sails from Hong
Kong today for Prince Rupert with a
cargo of 6000 tons of cement for Foley,
Welch and Stewart.    This is the first
I boat to leave the Orient for the new sea-
I port on the Pacific coast of Canada. She is
also carrying the first cargo from the
Orient to be used in the construction of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, the railway
I which will in a couple of years bring the
I immense cargoes from the Canadian in-
I terior to Prince Rupert for transhipment
I to  the   Orient.
This cargo is the opening of the trade
! between Prince Rupert and the Orient
and it is of the greatest interest to every
citizen of Rupert and to the whole of
Canada. The voyage of the Inverskip
will be watched closely and her entering
Prince Rupert's harbor will mark another
forward step in the city's history. Then
it will be that the dreams of the first
residents who saw great ships plying between this port and the ports of the
ancient continents will be realized.
The Inverskip will be the largest
vessel that has ever come into the harbor,
but she will have no more difficulty than
a small launch. Another boat as
large as the Inverskip could be put under
her keel and still they would not go
aground. A fleet of the largest boats
in the world can come into Prince
Rupert's harbor and play a game of
tag and it makes no difference where the
tide is. The Inverskip is owned by R. J.
Rowat & Co., of Glasgow and she will
reach here the latter part of August.
The immense quantity of cement will
be used in the construction of bridges,
culverts and other permanent works on
the G. T. P. right of way between Prince
Rupert and Kitselas or even farther up
the river. Foley, Welch and Stewart,
the contractors, are also building all the
bridges, except the one at Zanardi Rapids,
and many thousands of tons of cement
will be required to complete the work.
nature, the estimated cost, etc. The
permit is also a guarantee that the
building inspector will visit the structure
in course of erection and pass upon it.
If a permit is not taken out and the
building is erected without inspection,
and the inspector afterwards discovers
any imperfections it is very apt to be
condemned. The safer course is to take
out a permit.

PORCHER ISLAND PROVES MORE
PROFITABLE WITH DEPTH
Parsons and Foot Have Hit an Eight
Foot Seam of 20 Per Cent of Copper
On Their Claim at Jap Harbor.���
One   of   the   Really   Rich   Finds.
On Saturday last Parsons and Foot,
two prospectors from Porcher Island
blew into the town with new samples of
copper ore taken from their claims at
Jap Bay. The samples were a surprise
to everyone who saw them and the owners
are among those Who have struck it rich.
They state that the seam of copper is
eight feet wide and if that is correct they
have got one of the greatest things in the
north as the ore assays 20 per cent
copper and is as pure as copper can be.
The Porcher Island claims when discovered were low grade and Parsons and
Foot were doing development work on
them when they ran into this high grade
stuff. They have returned to the island
to continue their development work and
to ascertain the extent of the rich ore.
ftircher Island is destined to be a leading
fwtor in the profitable mineral producing districts around Prince Rupert.
Porcher Island is also very convenient
to town, being onlv a few miles to the
south.

BUILDING PERMITS
City Will  Issue Certificates for All
New   Buildings
One of the clauses in the Building
By-law provides that no building shall
hereafter be erected without first obtaining a permit from the city clerk.
To obtain such a permit is a very simple
matter. It is granted as soon as the
intending builder furnishes certain information in connection with the proposed building such as size, style.whether
store dwelling, hotel or whatever the
(Special to the Optimist)
Toronto, July 26.���The deadlock in
the arbitration proceedings regarding the
strike of trainmen on the Grand Trunk
Pacific still continues, but the men say
they will not interfere with the attempt
of the arbitration board to appoint a
special committee to obtain certain data
deemed by the board to be essential.
Most of the Grand Trunk trains are
moving today but under armed guard.
South Bend, Ind., July 26.���Yesterday
a car repairer named Louis Freel, at
work in the Grand Trunk shops, was
shot and killed. A riot resulted in which
some damage was done to railway
property and several were injured. Some
of the strike breakers were roughly
handled, and President Hays has declared that he will ask for United States
troops to protect the strike breakers.
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, July 26,���The revolutionists in
Spain have dedicated today to the commemoration of the deaths in the bloody
riots in Barcelona last year, and there
are bound to be a number of serious
conflicts between the revolutionists and
the government troops at many points.
The authorites have done all they could
to prevent this demonstration but from
appearances early this morning their
efforts have been practically without
avail. The revolutionists are openly
gathering and the troops are being confined to the barracks to await the first
overt act. In all probability, from present
appearances, the first overt act will be
an attack upon the barracks where the
troops are cooped up.
The king's popularity is competely gone
and it is said this weighs heavily on the
monarch. His attempt to repudiate responsibility for the horrors of last year
in Barcelona have been treated with
scornful contempt. A dispatch from
Madrid says the minister of the interior, Senor Cierva, admits that 178
were killed by the troops in last year's
riots, which were more serious than
were admitted at the time. Out of 1725
trials for treason there were only 500
acquittals.
Both Madrid and Barcelona were
reported to be ominously quiet this
morning but outbreaks were hourly
expected at these and also at other points.

MAROONED IN
GLACIER BAY
PARTY OF JUNEAU MEN HAS A
THRILLING ADVENTURE
Engine of Launch Breaks Down and
They Cling to Pinnacle of Rock
Until Rescued By Lucky Chance
By City of Seattle.
Juneau, July 23���A party from here
out on a prospective trip has just returned, after a most thrilling adventure which came near to costing them
their lives. They were out in a motor
boat which became disabled and they
crowded hurriedly into the small boat.
The men, using pieces of board as
paddles, managed to navigate the boat
to a rock that protruded from the water.
When the tide subsided it was discovered that the rock was the apex of a
pinnacle 2ith precipitous sides.
The marooned men feared to move
from the rock, and sent up distress
signals which were seen by the steamer
City of Seattle and the men were taken
on board and brought safely to Juneau.
To Furnish Two Thousand
Sixteen Candle Power
Lights
Cost Will Not Exceed $4000 or $5000
Says Aid. Hilditch���City to Charge
91.00 per lamp per month���Other
Aldermen do not Credit Statement.
Thirty-two thousand power electric
light plant can be installed for $4,000 or
$5,000, says Aid. Hilditch. He made a
report to the council last night upon investigations he had made himself. He
said that a temporary lighting plant
that would supply 2000 lights of 16
candle power each could be installed for
the above amount and that the light
could be sold at a profit for $1.00 per
month per lamp. He got his figures from
a local electrician and he believed they
were about correct.
Speaking of the proposed plan Aid.
Hilditch said that the Sash and Door
factory had a 100 horse power boiler
and if that could be rented at a price
per night the balance of the plant would
be easy to secure. The use of the old
electric light pole line and wires was also
included. He had not spoken to the
management of the Sash and Door
Factory, but he did not think there
would be much difficulty in that regard. He promised to go further into the
matter today and report to the council
tonight. v
The rest of the aldermen did not seem
to place much confidence in Aid. Hil-
ditch's   scheme.   They thought that if
the plant could be put in for four times
the amount he named the city would
still have a pretty good proposition
In the meantime the matter was referred
to the Light and Telephone Committee
to report on.
DEATHS IN THE
BELFAST FIRE
TORONTO  MINISTER  AND  WIFE
FATALLY INJURED
Jumped Through Window of Hotel
Kelvin During Cofnlagration.���
Two Maids Burned to Death in
Futile Attempt to Save Mistress.
Belfast, Ireland., July 26.���A fierce
fire last night destroyed Menlough
Castle, the famous Hotel Kelvin and a
number of other buildings and several
people were burned to death. One of
these was. the daughter of Sir Valentine
Blake. The girl met her deith at the
time the castle was destroyed. Two
maids who attempted to save their
mistress were also caught in the flames
and perished.
In the fire at the Hotel Kelvin three
guests were burned to death in their
room.s Three others were so badly
burned that their injuries are likely to
be fatal. Others- of the guests escaped
scantily clad, but not all without injury. Rev. Wm. McCaughan and his
wife, of Toronto, jumped from a window
but both were fatally injured by the fall.
(Special to the Optimist)
Valencia, July 25.���Jean Lamarque,
the most notorious bandit in France,
sold his life for a kiss. He had been
sentenced by proxy for murders done in
the Drome district two years ago but
managed to elude the vigilance of the
police and has since been at large. The
police, however, kept a strict watch
upon the bandit's; sweetheart and on
Friday they were rewarded. Just as she
rushed into his arms with a kiss of
welcome the police sprang upon him. He
was brought before the court Saturday
and again sentenced to the guillotine.
His three companions were executed a
year ago.
BUILT FUNERAL PYRE
Demented  Woman  Makes  a  Burnt
Offering of Herself
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, July 26.���Mrs. Hannah
Reynolds, who for some time has been
suffering from acute dementia, yesterday
gathered together in the back yard a
large number of packing boxes and other
inflammable material, poured oil upon
the mass and then set fire to it. As the
flames arose she jumped into the midst.
The rising of the flames quickly collected a crowd and the woman waa
rescued, frightfully burned. She lived
only a few moments.

The  Real  Laurier
(From the Toronto Globe).
Slowly the people of Canada are
learning that under the silk glove of
the Prime Minister there is a hand
whose grip is firm. The brightness
and geniality of his manner gave ground
for the notion that he lacked in masterfulness. But those who know the real
Laurier have no such illusions. He has
the temperament of the poet, the far
vision of the seer, and the imaginative
vitality of the Norman French. But
blended with all these qualities is the
full potentially of an autocrat. Laurier
is by nature a leader and master of men.
Were it not for his inbred democracy
and the spirit in which he inbreathed
from Gladstone and Bright and Lincoln he never could have been an exponent of Liberalism. The spirit of
a man of people, and the vote of power
makes him a leader whom the people
will follow to the end.

Mr.    Oliver's    Arctic    Tour
The Minister of the Interior is determined to know something of the country. When Lord Grey shall have made
his trail and canoe journey to Hudson's
Bay he will be beaten by Hon. Frank
Oliver, who has crossed country from
Edmonton to the Mackenzie, followed
the stream to its mouth at the Arctic
circle, walked ninety-four miles to the
porcupine River, and followed this
stream hundreds of miles by canoe to
the Yukon. This trip of some twelve
weeks has left Mr. Oliver in Dawson,
with a record of having endured much
hard work, hard living and exposure, having risked all the ordinary dangers of Arctic travel on foot and by
canoe. Canadians have added respect
for a public man who does such things
either for his own instruction or for
the joy of adventure.���Vancouver News
Advertiser.

J.   R.  Talpey  Receives  Good   News
From His Mining Engineer
J. R. Talpey, was one of those who
traveled to Stewart on the new Grand
Trunk steamer Prince George Sunday,
he having received an urgent call from
the man in charge of the improvement
work being done on his mining properties on Bitter creek. Mr. Talpey did
not state the nature of the communication but it was evidently good news. He
said he was going up to consult with
engineers as to the best policy to be
adopted for systematic and vigorous
development.
The holdings of Mr. Talpey and his
associates on Bitter Creek are under
expert and practical management and
as they are also said to be well backed
financially there is every promise of some
interesting reports about the property
at an early date.

Thousands Fleeing From Boiling
Water and Molten Lava.���Whole
Mountain Collapsing���Cities Near
Scene Reported as Destroyed.
(Special to the Optimist)
Tokio, July 26.���The island of Yezo,
(Hokkaido) was tremendously shaken
yesterday by an earthquake, and the
trembling of the earth still continues.
Early in the duration of the earthquake
an eruption of Mount Usu began and
eight thousand people fled inland to
escape the rain of boiling water and hot
mud pouring from the crater.
The great bay of Usu which once
sheltered all the Japanese fleet, has been
made into a shallow lake by the great
upheaval following the earthquake, and
several vessels were foundered.
The government has sent warships
to give all possible aid, and it is feared
that   thousands   must   have   perished.
The first earthquake occurred on
Friday, when the shocks tore several
rifts in the mountain side. On Sunday
the vessels in the harbor were moved to
what was considered a safe distance.
When the crater's head blew off yesterday
the bottom of the bay uplifted, carrying
the ships far ashore.
Late despatches state that the noun-
tain is collapsing on all sides. Several
of the larger cities near the scene are
reported as having been destroyed.
These later despatches state that the
loss of life must have been enormous.

POWERFUL CANNON
Makes    Modern    Twelve-Inch-Guns
Look Like Popguns.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, July 26.���According to
reports made in regard to the testing
of the great gun General Grant, with
which are now being made on Governor's
island, it makes all the big cannon now in
use there look like popguns. It fires a
new explosive, which it is said makes it
the equal in destructivesness of a dozen
twelve-inch guns. Two or three of such
guns, in the opinion of experts, would
amply suffice for the protection of the
entrance to the harbor.
DOWE ON LAURENTIC
Scotland   A'ard  Inspector Will  Beat
Other Steamers to Montreal
J. K. Ashman returned from Vancouver
Tuesday after having completed the
formation of the Ashman Coal Mines,
Limited, a stock company to take over
and operate the twenty sections of coal
lands which he staked about twenty
miles from Hazelton, near the Bulkley
river.
Mr. Ashman left Friday morning for
the properties to place a gang of six men
at work building cabins and making a
road from the main government road
through the valley as a preliminary to
starting actual underground work. A
tunnel will be started in a few weeks.
There are several seams of coal on
the claims but the main or lower one is
the one to be depended upon for commercial coal. This seam crops eleven
feet wide. The upper seams are narrower
and vary from one to two feet in width.
The company has been formed as a
corporation and no stock will be offered
to the public at any time. Fifty thousand
dollars has been set aside for a prospecting
and development fund with plenty more
in sight if the results of the first work
are satisfactory.
As far as location goes the claims are
ideally situated with the railway line
running through several claims���Omineca
Herald.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 26.���Scotland Yard
denies that any message has been sent
to the Canadian authorities to arrest
Dr. Crippen when he lands at Montreal.
It was said such messages had been sent
by the steamer Montrose. The police
say Inspector Dowe will land at Rimouski
ahead of either the Montrose or the
Sardinian, the latter being the boat on
which it is believed Crippen and his
stengorapher. are passengers. The inspector will search both vessels at the
custom house.
Another  New Town
Work was started this week on the
clearing of G. T. P. right-of-way and
ground for sidings at D. McMillan's

and a half miles down the river from
Telkwa. With a station and sidings already assured, a town of much importance is bound to spring up at this
point almost immediately. Among the
first industries to be located in the new
town are a saw mill and large brick works,
which, it is reported, will be established
here shortly.���Interior News, Aldermere.

Both were thrown to some distance and

Credit Due Sir Wilfrid
History will credit Sir Wilfrid Laurier
with the Grand Trunk Pacific. He and
his colleagues submitted the scheme to
the people of Canada and carried it
through parliament. Five years ago
at Fort William Sir Wilfrid turned the
first sod, on the actual construction
of the line and on this Sunday night

to travel from Fort Willaim to Winnipeg
over the G. T. P., moved out of the yards
at Westfort.���Winnipeg Free Press.
Telephone    Alarms
The telephone fire alarm system was
installed and in working order by ten
o'clock Saturday night. There are 16
boxes in all and they are easily located
by the color. The public is cautioned
to be very particular about sending in
false alarms. One was sent in on Sunday
but aa no number was given the brigade
did not turn out. To send in a false
alarm is one of the most serious of crimes
and any one found guilty of it will have
a trip to New Westminster at the expense of the city.

Letters to the Editor
For a Canadian Club
Editor of Optimist,���Your editorial
on "Daughters of the Empire" leads me
to ask why a city of the present���and
especially of its growing���importance
as Prince Rupert has not a Canadian
Club, and I put the question in the confident belief that this is all that is
necessary to lead to the immediate
formation of one. There is one in nearly
every city of importance in Canada and
they all are doing good work. There is
an especial call for one here for the reason
that we have no organization by means
of which a distinguished stranger to
Prince Rupert can be entertained and
our citizens given the pleasure of meeting
him. There are any number of reasons
why we should have such a body, but
the aim, scope and activity of these
clubs are too well known to need calling attention to. They do very much to
advertise a city well at a minimum cost,
and I am directly interested in the advertising of Prince Rupert. If a few
leading gentlemen will signify their
desire in this direction I shall be glad to
start the ball rolling.

Secretary, Publicity Club.

STILL HUNTING
AFTER CRIPPEN
BERTILLON MEASUREMENTS
ARE   SENT    FROM   BERLIN
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 26.���From all points
of Europe come alleged news of the
movements of Dr. Hawley H. Crippen,
the American dentist charged with the
murder of his wife in their Islington
home, which shows the excitment over
the case is widespread and the police
Everywhere on the alert to secure his
arrest. Yesterday the police at Scotland
Yard received from Berlin a series of
Bertillon measurements taken there of
a man suspected of being Crippen. The
man was released and is now on his way
to England shadowed by a detective.
Saturday came the news that the
murderer was hiding in the Andorra
republic, in the Pyreness, It is said that
he fled directly to Andorra after leaving
the Hotel Vernet at Aix Les Baines,
France, where his presence had been
reported.
Meantime Scotland Yard is waiting
with some impatience a report from
Inspector Dowe, who hopes to arrest
Crippen and his accomplice at Montreal
as soon as he arrives there, the two, it is
believed, being passengers on the Sardinia.
To Succeed Sir Percy Lake
Ottawa, July 23.���Sir Percy Lake,
chief of staff of the Canadian militia,
is to be succeeded by another British
officer and General Otter will be made
inspector-general of the forces.
Sneezes That Ended Fatally
New York, July 22.���Jos. Benner-
scheid sneezed himself to death in a
restaurant today. After shaking pepper into his soup he was seized by a
fit of sneezing and ruptured a blood
vessel.  He was 51 years old.
After Northwest Passage
Ottawa, July 25.���(Special)���A letter
just received from Captain Bernier,
on his way north in the government
exploring steamer Arctic, says that he
will try for the northwest passage discovered by Amundsen and hopes to
arrive on the Pacific within two years.
Royal Bank Moved
The Royal Bank of Canada are now
established in their new quarters having
moved over yesterday. Manager H. P.
Wilson was fortunate in securing so
prominent a corner. The new Royal
Bank is the corner of the handsome new
building erected by O.M.Helgerson & Co.,
and it is an ideal place for a bank. The
furnishings and fixtures are all of the
best and present a very substantial

A very short session of the council was
held last night. Very little business was
on hand except the completion of a
couple of the by-laws. Among other thing
that were taken up was the membership
in the Union British Columbia Municipalities and after some discussion it was
decided to join.
A communication was received from
Clarkson, Cross & Helliwell stating that
the city books would probably leave
Vancouver   next   Monday.���Received.
From the Bank of Montreal notifying
the council of the assignment of the
Wood Pipe Co., and asking the council
to pay its account.���Finance Committee.
From Jas. Milne asking what was
being done about the electric light
plant.���Telephone  Committee.
From Union B. C. Municipalities inclosing two copies of minutes of their'
last meeting, and inviting Prince Rupert
to forward its membership fee for this
year.���
In speaking of the Union of B. C.
Municipalities letter Aid. Naden sid
that it was a very valuable institution
and had a very strong influence with the
legislature in connection with municipal
legislation. He for one would like to see
the city join.
The Mayor thought that it would
probably be better to let the matter
stand over for this year.
Aid. Lynch and Aid. Naden moved
that the city join the Union of B. C.
Municipalities, the fee to be $25.���
Carried.
From Miss Helen E. Robinson of
Vancouver applying for a position as
operator in the telephone office. She
is an expert on both local and long distance   lines.���Telephone   Committee.
Aid. Naden asked the Mayor when he
intended convening the council for another little jaunt like the one on Saturday and Sunday in order to finish the
work.
Opening on Thursday
The Royal Hotel, corner Third avenue
and Sixth street is now completed and
will be opened on Thursday. Corley and
Burgess have one of the finest hotels
in northern British Columbia and they
are in fine shape to cater to the best
trade.
DESKS HAVE ARRIVED
For   the   New   Public   School   and
Will   be   Placed   Shortly
The desks for the new school have
arrived and are being stored in the old
school house for the time being. As soon
as Contractor Prudhomme can get a
room completed in the new school,
which will likely be next week, the desks
will be transferred there. This school
furniture was secured from the Provincial
(tovernment through the instrumentality of Wm. Manson, M. P. P. and
they will cost the city nothing. Needless
to say the school Board appreciates
Mr. Manson's efforts very much. The
pupils will also appreciate the new desks
when they get into the  new  school.

You are Liable
To be accidentally killed, crip.
pled, Minded, disabled or taken
ill at any time, and the value of
your time (which is money to
you) may be destroyed in a
moment.
No reasonable man goes with-
out protection against loss from
the destruction of his property.
Did it ever occur to you that
your time has as distinct a value
as your property, or that your
life may be the property of your
family?
This protection is a duty you
owe yourself and those who may
be dependent upon you.
How dare you ignore this danger and go without adequate protection for yourself or family,
against Loss of Time, Total Disablement or Death?
