none could reach him in time. He

Gilroy was a young unmarried man

He had friends in Sault Ste.
arie, Mich., and he was a member of
the International Brotherhood of Maintenance of Ways Employees, the head
office of which order  is in St. Louis.
The Provincial Police were notified
soon after nine o'clock of the accident
and Constable Jones went up the river
at once. He made inquiries and his report is in substance as follows:-
Wm, E. Gilroy, a bridge carpenter
on the Zanardi Rapids bridge for the
past three months, was in the act of
releasing a rail with a peavy. The rail
was being hoisted out from between the
false work on one of the piers on the
bridge and got caught on a bolt and he
gave it a sudden wrench with the peavy
and lost his balance and fell into the
swift running water. He was seen to come
up near the derrick scow and the engineer threw a rope right over him as he
was in the water, but he appeared to
take no notice of it being apparently in
a dazed condition. He disappeared and
again'came up near the anchor cribbing.
Three men put out from the scow with
a boat and stayed around where he
disappeared the second time but he
never came to the top again.
Mr. James McGregor then ordered
out three boats at slack water, equipped
with grapples, in a hope of getting th?
body, but on account of the speed of the
water and the rocks was unable to do so.
As nothing more could be done they
abandoned   the   search.

AN AUTOMOBILE
FOR THE FIREMEN
HAS BEEN ORDERED, TO COST
ABOUT $8,500.
Will be a Combination Chemical
and Hose Auto���Water Works Shop
Will be Built Near the Fire Hall as
a Repair and Tool Shop.
There is no longer any doubt but that
a big automobile will grace Prince Rupert's new fire hall. The Fire and Water
committee recommended the purchase of
a combination chemical and hose auto
at a cost of $8,600 and they were
authorized to purchase it. The committee
was also empowered to erect a waterworks shop near the fire hall for the
water works department.
The Fire and Water committee reported as follows:- Instead of ordering
standpipes the committee order 3 inch
hydrants to cost $31 50 each. Further
they recommended the construction of a
water works shop at an approximate
cost of $1000' construction to be started
at once. At present we have no place
for storing tools, pipe fittings, etc., and
in consequence, tools and fittings are
constantly being stolen, also considerable
work has to be taken to outside men
which would be and could be done by
water works men if we had our own men.
We would advise placing this shop
in the proximity of the present fire hall
in order that some employee who is
thoroughly conversant with the water
system could act in conjunction with the
fire department, and who would be
thoroughly conversant with the opening
and closing of water gates in the event
of fire. It would therefore be necessary
to provide sleeping accommodation for
one or two men in said work-shop. We
would further recommend the purchase
of a combination chemical hose automobile at an approximate cost of $8,600.
In reference to the water works shop
Aid. Hilditch suggested that the basement
of the new fire hall be used as there
would be a space of about 22 feet, the
depth pf the foundation, that would be
available.
The report of the Fire and Water committee   be   adopted.���Carried.
ANOTHER LIQUOR CASE
One of Miller's Men Caught Selling
On Comox Avenue
John Griffiths, one of King Miller's
staff on Comox avenue, appeared before
Majistrate Carss this morning charged
with selling liquor in Miller's place.
The charge laid by the police. Griffiths
reserved his plea until Tuesday morning
and the case was adjourned until then.
HOT WEATHER IN
PRINCE RUPERT
TEMPERATURE   REGISTERED   78
DEGREES IN THE SHADE
Saturday and Sunday Were Very
Warm and Very Fine���Evenings
Are Cool���Fine Weather has Lasted
For a Week and ie Still Good.
Prince Rupert has been enjoying
ideal summer weather for the past week
and it has been gradually getting warmer
and warmer until one had a sensation
that reminded him of the old days in the
big cities in the hot belt. The sun has
been extremely hot and Saturday and
Sunday there was not a cloud in the sky.
Had it not been for the cool breeze
from the snow capped mountains, although that breeze was very light, the
heat would have been oppressive. The
ther mometer recently installed on the
hill on Fifth avenue west of Fulton
street registered 68 high and 62 low on
Saturday and 78 high and 62 low on
Sunday.
No matter how hot it might get in
the middle of the day as soon as the sun
begins to get behind the mountains the
temperature drops and the evenings are
COOL
The readings for today will be published tomorrow.
Will Arrive Tonight
Col. W. M. Davis, officer commanding
Earl Grey's Horse, and the new city
engineer for Prince Rupert, will arrive
in the city tonight on the Princess Royal
and will take charge of the city's engineering department in the morning.
He left Berlin on July 2nd and has come
right through.
SEATTLE DEFEATED
Vancouver  Wins  by  Score  of  Five
Runs to Two.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 9.���Local fans were
wild with joy when Vancouver defeated
Seattle yesterday by a score of five to
two.   They now declare the pennant is
safe.     The  games yesterday resulted:
Vancouver   5,   Seattle   2.
Tacoma 2, Spokane 1.
Vancouver,  July   11.���(Special)���The
Sunday baseball games resulted as follows
Vancouver 2; Seattle 1.
Spokane 4; Tacoma 2.
John Albi, the contractor, who had a
scow containing his costly outfit go
down at the dock a couple of weeks ago,
has recovered the whole of it and today
was loading it on the Beatrice to take it
to Vancouver. The outfit is estimated to
be worth $4000, and was fished up bit
by bit.
VANCOUVER MAY BE DRY TOWN
Water Famine May Result
From Fierce Fires.
Flames Ravaging the Capilano and
Lynn Valleys���Stores Destroyed at
North Vancouver���Hundreds now
Engaged in Fighting Forest Fires.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 11.���Immense forest
fires are raging along the Capilano and
Lynn valleys, carrying away buildings
and ruining the growing crops. Hundreds
of men have been out all night fighting
the flames, but they grow nearer and
nearer in spite of all efforts, an inland
wind assisting them in this direction.
This morning they invaded North Vancouver, and in an incredibly short time
three of the stores there and several
small homes were burned down or gutted.
The smoke hangs over the city today
like an immense pall and the atmosphere
is stifling. Grave fears are entertained
that the water supply may be cut off at
any moment. The whole of the city's
supply is drawn from the two valleys
now in the clutches of the destroying
element. The Vancouver waterworks
is also in the direct track of the flames
and it is said that nothing can save it
except a heavy rain storm and a change
in the wind. The chances of a water
famine is giving great anxiety to the
people of this city.
Hundreds of settlers are coming in
who have fled from their farms but no
fatalities have so far been reported.
A PITCHFORK
AS A WEAPON
FRANK PLANT ASSERTED HIS AUTHORITY OVER STABLES.
Men in Construction Camp Quarrel���
Two Lose Blood and a Third is on
Trial for Assault���Williams Had
Three Wounds.
Frank Plant, of Kitselas, was before
Judge Young this morning. His was the
first case of the July County court and
it will be finished this afternoon. Plant
was committed to trial in Hazelton on
a charge of assaulting Thomas Williams.
Both men were employed on the railway
construction work .at Kitselas. Plant
was the new stable boss and Williams was
the blacksmith. Plant and a teamster
called Paddy had some trouble and Paddy
got a crack on the nose which started
the blood flowing and also quieted him
down. Williams then went into the barn
and asked who hit Paddy, Plant said
"I did." He and Williams got busy on a
chewing match and Williams was hit
on the head with a pitch fork. The blow
knocked him down and took some of the
starch out of him. He visited a doctor
and had two cuts on the right side of
the head and one slit in the right ear
sewed up. He was off work for ten days.
Several witnesses were called and from
the evidence it could be seen that it was
just one of these quarrels which often
break out in a construction camp and
especially after some of the men have been
on a toot the night before.
His Honor's decision will be given
tomorrow.
Spokane, July 11.���The Springtcn
lumber yards went up in smoke early
this morning, with a loss of $100,000.
Investigation proves that the conflaga-
tion was caused by the dropping of a
match, and everything being in a dry
state owing to the intense heat of last
week the flames were beyond control
almost as soon as they were discovered.
JAPANESE WAR AGAIN
Great   Britain   to   Strengthen   Her
Forces in the Pacific.
Berlin, July 11.���(Special)���Professor
Wirth declares that Japan will not renew
he alliance with Great Britain. He says
the Mikado is seeking to enter a triple
alliance with Russia and the United
States and as a result England is preparing to greatly strengthen her forces
in the Pacific.
BITTER CREEK
GOLD FIELDS
ALD. NADEN VISITED THEM AND
SAYS THEY ARE GOOD
Ledge Run From Six to Fifteen Feet
in Width and Was Traced a Mile
and a Half���Free Milling Gold All
Along tho Surface.
Aid. G. R. Naden returned from a
trip to Stewart this morning and is
well pleased with what he saw in the
new gold district back of Bitter creek.
Aid. Naden started out last Friday with
Vaughan Rhys and others. They took
the stage to the mouth of Bitter creek
and then packed it over the trail. The
journey is not a difficult one, being only
twenty miles from Stewart and easily
accomplished in one day.
Aid. Naden stated to the Optimist
today that he was only at the strike
half and hour and can only say that he
saw it. Where he was the ledge was
almost eight feet wide. "The ledge
apparently runs from six feet to fifteen
wide and the owners claim that they
have traced it a mile and a half. They
also state that they can pan free gold
for nearly all that distance. In all
probability the strike will not be free
milling for more than a few inches from
the surface. The value of the property
depends entirely upon the average assays
We took a few samples from one place
but the result of the assays we do not
know yet. Vaughn-Rhys will stay for
several days and make a thorough examination and probably a report."
Aid. Naden also said that the ledge
is good and the territory is large, although the first reports were a little
exaggerated. In his own mind his
felt satisified that the Bitter creek fold
fields would turn out to be very valuable
although he would not say much until
after Vaughan-Rhys had returned and
gave his report.

SCAVENGER WORK
Aldermen Refuse to Take Charge
It at Present Time.
Who is supposed to look alter ,J
scavenger work of tlie city?  On Sati
day night a couple of the aldermen,
into an argument on the question. Aidl
Hilditch   thought   tlie  council shoulj
look after it, and Aid. Pattullo t
they have enough to do.   It was fu||
decided that each citizen look alter 1
own  scavenger work  and the
will pass a by-law providing a penaltj
for delinquents
Aid. Hilditch said that there
been a great many complaints \m
about the scavenger men not looki
after their work. He thought the t
should call for tenders to look after I
work.
Aid. Pattullo said we were not goin
to look after closets etc.
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Hilditch thi
got into a discussion as to who was met
by "we" looking after the
work.
Aid. Hilditch claimed that the count.
could not control this kind of work witj
out a city scavenger.
The aldermen thought that the i
tary inspector was supposed to look i
the scavenger work.   A by-law will 1
brought in soon providing a penalty I
non-attention to their premises.
Aid. Mobley said that in some i..
the city did keep control of the scaveni
work and levied special rates. He c
not at present recommend the orgi
zation of a special department.
The scavenger work will be i
the citizens themselves.
FRUITFUL VALLEYS.
Tacoma Man Thinks Well of Build
and Kitsumkalum,
Frank Lawson, a real estate del
of Tacoma, Wash., spent a couple |
weeks in the Skeena and Bulkley val
last month. He visited quite a numb^
of ranches in the Bulkley, went i
Vopper river for a distance of I
miles, then took a trip through '
Lakelse and Kitsumkalum valleys s
down the Skeena river as far as (
yard Point, and was considerably i
pressed with the unlimited resources i
this country, both mineral and agricn|
tural.
He stated before leaving for the soul
that in his opinion two more years ��l
witness a phenominal development intlj
northern portion of  BritishJC
traversed by the line of the Grand 1
Pacific Railway, unequalled in the histor
of the Pacific Coast colonization.
his opinion conditions along the Skee

The Optimist Job Department

ON THE SILVER CUP
Formation Explained by the Government    Geologist
The formation on Ninemile mountain
has been explained by W. W. Leach,
government geologist, in his latest
pamphlet, "Recent Mining Developments on the Skeena River," and consists of altered sedimentaries with filtered intrusions. Following is an extract
from his report, covering the Silver Cup
claim:
"This claim, one of a group of four,
is located on Ninemile mountain, about
six miles north of Hazelton. The ore
occurs near and to the east of an important granitic area, in a highly altered
sadnstone, in places approaching a
quartzite. The strike of the vein is about
nrtth 30 east with a dip of 73 degrees
southeast, while the country rock strikes
south 50 degrees northwest Two openings have been made on this claim,
the lower of which the vein is 1.2 feet in
width between well defined walls. The
vein matter is nearly solid galena, in
association with a little stibnite, ar-
senopyrite,  blende and white quartz."
PAYMENT  ON  BOND
First   Payment   on   Fourmile   Hill
Properties is Made.
On telegraphic instructions from E. L.
Kinman a cheque for $2750 was turned
over to George Attridge as a first payment
on the two claims on Fourmile hill recently bonded by Mr. Kinman. The
cheque has been left with R. S. Sargent
Hazelton, when the purchaser left for
the coast, to be delivered after assays
had been made of the samples from the
shaft.
Sinking is in progress and it is understood to be Mr. Kinman's intention
to keep a gang of men working until the
property is fully opened up. The ore is
nearly if not quite the full width of the
shaft, but it is in a streak of about
eighteen inches on the hanging wall
where the values chiefly lie.
Pilot on Prince Rupert
Capt. Frank Stratford, for some time
master of the tug William Joliffe, has
joined the steamer Prince Rupert, of
the G. T. P. as pilot, relieving Capt. G.
E. L. Robertson, who is awaiting the
arrival of the steamer Prince George, due
to arrive soon, of which he is to have
command.

THE LICENSE ISSUE.
There has been a lot of criticism and censure over the action of the license
commissioners in refusing to consider license applications yet on the ground that
they were not officially appointed until after the last day for legally transacting
business had passed. The censure comes chiefly from those having a selfish interest
in the issue. According to the documents produced Messrs. Merrifield and Smith
were not legally appointed until the Ninth of June. The act states that June 8 is
the last day for a legal organization meeting for the quarter. In view of the fact
that the Attorney General's department has refrained from expressing an opinion
which might conflict with the vice-regal authority the commissioners are justified
in refusing to override a technicality even though they may be given the doubtful
assurance that the breach of the Act would be winked at and the Board's transactions accepted as legal. Until the Attorney-General, as chief of the license department, gives them an opinion that it is legal to proceed the commissioners would
be unwise and untrue to acted otherwise than they have. Conscientious
observance of the law cannot be questioned and anyone who would urge another
to act contrary to his opinion of what is right, is not only unfair but dishonest.
Following the question a little further there seems to be no particular reason
for any indignation over not getting licenses for another two months. There are no
parched throats in town but what can readily find intoxicants���thanks to the authorities who have never yet made good the promise to close the blind pigs. There
are no vested interests(at least there should not be) to consider. Why all this haste?
If it is reduced to a question of business why not hustle the street improvements.
A gang of men making roads will mean more prosperty to the town than a gang of
men leaning on a licensed bar.
Premier McBride has not received much credit in Prince Rupert since the
������ days of the charter but he is entitled   to honest appreciation for his services to
^ this city in consevring for them water rights on Woodworth Lake and in granting
B those rights so promptly after the application was made. The Prince Rupert Power
and Light Company had a claim which many business men thought worthy of
recognition and in setting aside this claim, backed as it was by some of the strong
te political friends of the Government, the Premier has done something for the city
which is worthy of our hearty thanks.
DOCUMENTS IN LICENSING CASE
Legal Opinions as to Status
of Commissioners.
The Correspondence and the Legal
Opinions Presented to the Board
���City Solicitors Favor Granting
Licenses���The Board Says No.
Acting upon the advice of the best
legal authorities in the city the License
Commissioners decided on Saturday afternoon that they were net appointed to
office until June 9th and were not in a
position to meet on June 8th to consider
applications for liquor licenses, and could
not take the matter up at any adjourned
meeting, and further that there were no
applications ready for consideration in
time for the first meeting June 8th
providing it had been in order. The
meeting was therefore adjourned until
thee scond week in September when all
the applications that are in order will
be   considered   and   licenses   granted.
Mayor Stork, presiding over the meeting, maintained that the opinion of lawyers other than the city solicitors was
not in order and should not be considered by the board. Commissioners
Smjth and Merryfield thdught otherwise.
There was a little argument between the
mayor and the commissioners but His
Worship had to abide by the majority.
A large number of those applying for
wholesale, retail, restaurant and hotel
licenses were present. The Temperance
party was also represented. Among the
legal fraternity present were, Alex.
Manson, Alfred Carss, W. E. Fisher.
All the commissioners were present
with Mayor Stork presiding. He called
the meeting to order.
Commissioner V. W. Smith handed a
bunch of correspondence to the clerk
relating to the appointments of the
commissioners, and legal opinions on
the board's legal ability to grant licenses
at this time, and he asked that they be
read through to the meeting.

J. E. Merryfield, Esq.,
City.
Dear Sir,���With regard to the question
you have submitted to us of the possibility of the License Board granting
license at the meeting tomorrow, we
would say that we have looked carefully
into the B. C. reports, and we have not
been able to find any decision on the
question for this Province upon the point.
We had not before us a copy of the rules
of precedents governing appointments to
office in British Columbia, as we were
not able to obtain the same; but we
would say that the proceedings
in the Province are to the effect that
officials act from the moment of appointment by the Executive Council simply
by instructions by wire and prior to
gazetting. The occasions as far as we
know where officials have acted under
these circumstances have never been
questioned, and as the case in point is
identically similar, we presume that the
same statement of facts would apply.
The particular point involved in this
case was submitted to the Attorney
General by His Worship the Mayor when
in Victoria, and it was pointed out to him
that the Board in anticipation of the
appointment sat upon the 8th and
adjourned. The Attorney General with
the facts before him was of the opinion
that the Commissioners would be
"absolutely in order" in granting licenses.
As many cases of this description must
have come to the attention of the Attorney General on previous occasions, we
think that the Board is quite safe in
relying upon his statement. Incidentally
it should be noticed that the License
Department is a branch of the Attorney
General's and we think that he is in a
position to speak, and further we would
say that it is our opinion that no personal
liability will be incurred by the Commissioners if they see fit to take steps towards granting licenses.
Should your board desire it, we shall
at once communicate with Victoria with
a view to obtaining the regulations
governing appointments to office, in
order that we may be in a better position to know the exact status of appointees.
Yours truly,
WILLIAMS & MANSON

Re Board of License Commissioners.
Dear Sir,���I have your letter requesting
a legal opinion as to whether you were
appointed as a License Commissioner on
the 7th or 9th of June, A. D. 1910: the
facts being as set out in the following
telegrams:
"Victoria, B. C, 7th July, 1910,
" V. W. Smith, Prince Rupert, B.C.:
"Order in Council appointing Smith
and Merryfield passed Councul 7th June,
approved by Lieutenant Governor 9th
June. H. A. Maclean."
The Municipal Clauses Act says the
two members of the Board (other than
the Mayor) are to be appointed by the
Lieutenant Governor in Council. This
means by the Lieutenant Governor
acting by and with the advice of the
Executive Council-Interpretation Act,
Sec. 10, S. S. 7.���and as the Lieutenant
Governor did not act in this matter until
the 9th of June, I am irresistably led
to the conclusion that you were not
appointed until that date and that consequently you could not legally sit as a
Licensing Court until the second Wednesday in September of this year.
Yours truly,
L. W. PATMORE.
W. E. Fisher

J. E. Merryfield, Esq.,
Member of License Board
Prince Rupert, B. C.
Dear Sir,���In reply to your inquiry
as to whether or not the Board of License
Commissioners have any power to grant
licenses before September, I may say
that I have given the matter my attention and beg to submit my opinion
on the question.
I have come to the conclusion that
the board have not the power to grant
any license until September and may
give my reasons for this opinion as follows
Under sub-section "C" of section 182
of the "Municipal Clauses Act", the
sittings of the Board are a statutory
fixture,.viz. on the second Wednesday
in March, June, September and December and these dates cannot be altered or
varied, and the Board have no right to
sit arid hear any applications except on
those dates other than on days to which
they have adjourned from the legal day
and then only to hear applications which
were in order on the legal day from which
they adjourned.
It is shown in the Gazette that the
appointment of the Board of Commissioners was made on the 9th of June this
being the day after the legal day fixed
for the sittings���therefore they cannot
legally sit and hear any application until the second Wednesday in September.
There seems to be some question as to
whether or not the appointments were
made on the 7th of June but I am strongly
of the opinion that they were not. The
Council evidently sat on the 7th and

recommended the appointment of yourself and Mr. Smith and the Governor
assented to this appointment on the
19th, when the said appointment was
I Gazetted. This is evidenced by the
I telegram Mr. Smith holds saying that
I "the appointment will be. made today",
I this telegram being dated the 9th.
I might also refer you tp Section 10,
I Chap. 71 of the "Evidence Act" which
Itays that the evidence of any appoint-
Jment should be given by production
I of the official Gazette containing a copy
I of said appointment. Ypu will see,
I therefore, that if a license was granted
land application was made to set. it aside

I had no jurisdiction, the only evidence

Ithe Gazette showing the appointment

I question that the Commissioners having

I would be illegal. -.-���...
Another point I might mention is
I that, taking for the sake of argument
I the Commissioners were rightly appointed

I vertisement run its full time, could
I not put the application in order, for a
I matter out of order on the day it is heard

land it is only these matters which are
j legally before the Commissioners, that
I can be adjourned and dealt with at sub-
| sequent meetings.
On these two points, therefore, I say
I that it is not legal to grant any licenses

man's statements, but he felt that the
board was not in a position to grant
licenses at this time and as long as he
felt that way he would not vote for the
granting of licenses. He then moved
that all applications for licenses be
referred to the September meeting and
that the board now adjourn until then
Commissioner Merryfield seconded the
motion and the chairman declared it
carried.
Board Discussion
After the reading of the above cor-
I respondence, the mayor stated that he
considered the opinions of W. E. Fisher,
and L. W. Patmore were very much out
of order as they are not empowered in
I any way to advise the Board,   The city
I solicitors were  here  for that  purpose.
Commissioner Merryfield replied that
he had asked Mr. Fisher for his opinion
as he was unable to get one from the city
I solicitors that was emphatic.
City Solicitor Manson said:-
"You have our opinion and we are
t Prepared to stand by anything we have
I said."
Mr. Merryfield said "There is nothing
ln It to stand by. Frcm your written
opinion we do not know whether We can
grant licenses or not."
Commissioner Smith:- "As there is
80 much difference of public opinion
��n the license question, I asked Mr.

RUMOR DECLARED BASELESS
King Edward Did not Become Catholic Just Before Death
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 9.���The Archbishop
of Canterbury, as the highest, Protestant
cleric of Great Britain, has written a
letter to the Catholic Bishop of Quebec,
in which he denies as a baseless rumor
the statement that King Edward became
a Catholic on his deathbed. The archbishop was at the royal bedside when
Edward breathed his last, which is a
warranty for the exactitude of his denial.
FLAGMAN ARRESTED
Fearful   Wreck   of   Electric   Car   at
Fort    Rouge   Crossing
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, July 9.���The Canadian
Northern express, travelling at the rate
of twenty-five miles an hour, this morning
struck the trailer of an electric car at
the Fort Rouge crossing. The trailer
and the car itself were knocked to pieces
and the express was derailed. Many of
the passengers were injured, three of
them fatally. Mrs. Larrence was dead
when rescued from the wreck. The
flagman, alleged to be responsible for
the electric car being on the crossing,
has been arrested.
PROFIT OF THE FIGHT
All Told  the Attendance  was  Over
Eighteen   Thousand
Reno, Nev., July 9.���Tex Rockard
last night gave out the official statement
of the receipts to be $270,775. Those
who paid admission numbered 15,760.
There were 760 complimentary tickets,
and he estimated that the number of
persons that slipped in 1500. All told
the attendance is given as 18,020. The
purse with the bonuses amounted to
$121,000, and Rickard figured that his
experience at San Francisco cost him
$30,000, thus he and his partner, Glea>
son, will have a profit of about $120,000.
PANNING PLACK SAND
Good  Results  Obtained  on  Placers
of Inland Mines
Manager Chas. A. Giggey and H. M.
Wood of the Inland Mines Limited came
in to Kitselas from the claims to meet
President W. D. Munroe and arrange with
him for the installation of a saw mill
on the claims. Before leaving for town
they panned nine pans of gravel from
right on the surface, to obtain a sample
of black sand for assay, it being believed
that when ground sluicing is commenced
the black sand will run high enough in
find gold to pay operating expenses.
When the black sand was worked over in
town, between thirty and forty coarse
pieces of gold were taken out, and many
smaller colors could be seen all thrbugh
the  sand.
As this sample is being left just as it
was when brought in, so that it may be
exhibited in Prince Rupert, no effort was
made to accurately get at the total value
obtained from the nine pans, but as near
as can be approximated by those who
saw the sample it is believed the value
can be safely placed at $5.00, or better
than fifty cents to the pari, which is
pretty good for surface work.
This sample was seen by an expert
who has done considerable work in this
line in the Portland Canal, and he made
no attempt to conceal the fact that he
was both surprised and pleased to see
such sure signs of a successful placer
minirg future for Gold creek.

Real Estate is the first essential of his existence. To be born landless is to be
born with your life mortgaged. Prince Rupert has the Canadian Nation behind
it and when the Dominion slumps she will slump, but not before.
The price of the same value in Real Estate is double what it was ten years
ago because the world's stock of gold, in which value is measured has doubled.
In ten years Rupert Realty will have increased at least five times in value, and
the price of that value will be double that ten times to-day's price. In two
months the City Council will be paying out $2,000 a month in wages, then the
demand for the very limited supply of cheap lots will raise them to dear lots.
Use foresight. ���
I specialize in cheap lots on easy terms. $30 cash and $15 a month buys
beautifully situated level lots at $150, Others $200 to $300. Grand double corner
on Hays' Creek, $525, Block 1, Sec. 8. Double corner next block to Seal Cove

110,001 THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST
CONTRIBUTION
TO EXHIBITION
CITY    COUNCIL    WILL    DONATE
$250 THIS YEAR.
Finances Are Uncertain as Yet Say
the Aldermen, or They Would
Contribute More���Tram Cars on
Seventh Street an Inconvenience.
Prince  Rupert's  first  industrial  ex-
hibitjtjn, which will be held under the
auspices of  the  Board of Trade Ex-
. hibition Committee, will receive a grant
of $250 from the city council.     The
Finance committee presented its report
at Saturday nights' meeting and it was
adopted   without   a dissenting   voice.
The .aldermen would, they said, like to
give more, but this was the first year and
' as ytjt they did not know just how their
finances would pay out.
. Those present at the meeting were
Mayor   Stork,   Aid.   Lynch,   Pattullo,
Hilditch, Mobley,  Mclntyre.
A communication was received from
G. W, Nickerson, secretary of the Board
of Trade Exhibition Committee, fully
explaining the object of the proposed
exhibition.
A communication was received from
Wm. Manson, M. P. P. notifying the
mayor that the city's 300 inches of water
had been granted.
A petition was received from residents
on Second street from First to Second
avenue.���Referred   to   Streets   committee to report on.
Fair Contribution
The finance committee recommended
that the council contribute $250 to the
exhibition the Board of Trade proposes
to hold. The committee also received
accounts to the amount of $1057.72.
Aid. Pattullo said that he saw by the
press that the council was expected to
coMJlbute $1000. The city cannot give
that much now and he moved that $250
be donated.
Aid. Mobley argued that the city
could not afford to give more than the
amount named although all would like
to give more. He therefore seconded the
motion.
The  motion  was  carried.
The city engineer will look after the
tram car and gasoline engine on Seventh
street past Thos. Dunn's residence.
That gentleman has been complaining
again about the inconvenience it is to
him.
Another Week for Brandon's Players
On account of the new theatre at
Stewart not being ready for their engagement Brandon's Players, who have
made such a hit with local playgoers
during the past week and a half, will
remain at the Empress one more week
and promise us another big week of
first class plttys. The Prince Rupert
people are not tired of the Brandon's
Company by any means and the indications are that they intend to keep
the house well filled again this week.
The company is far above the average
of usual stock companies in their performances, the selection of plays and in
their production and during the coming
week the management will cater entirely to the public taste and give a
series of comedies.
To-night " The Embassy Ball," an
English comedy will be the offering. Tomorrow night they repeat their greatest
success of last week "Miss Temple's
Telegram". v
On Wednesday night that ever popular
comedy drama "David Harum"; Thursday night "The Great Divide"; Friday
night "Cousin Kate," the comedy in
which Ethel Barrymore gained her
greatest New York and- London success
and the one in which Miss Jeanne
Russell has just closed a starring tour.
The engagement closes here on Saturday
night with the thrilling life drama
"Jesse James" a very startling melodrama
founded on incidents in the life of this
famous outlaw.
On Friday night another treat is in
store in the shape of an amateur contest
and it is said there are already a great
many applicants.
The above programme coupled with
the already attained by Brandon's
Players should be enough to cause
Manager McMillon to put out the
S. R. O. sign each night.
BAPTISM   BY IMMERSION
Young   Lady   Samples   Tuck   Inlet
Water in Large Doses.
In the bright sunshine of yesterday
afternoon, and among the gaily dressed
crowd along the waterfront, one party
of eight drew particular attention to
themselves. There were six pretty maids
and two cavaliers standing on the float
gaily humming "A boat, a boat and to
the ferry" when the whole float began
to giggle in sympathy with the rippling
waters and one of the maidens stepped
on her foot. "Now splashing, dashing
like a fish, Oh save me," the maiden
bubbled.
The hero was there. He elevated his
bushy eyebrow and his Sunday cuffs
and dove undaunted into the jaws of
death, making a tiny hole in the water
that ruthlessly closed again and incidentally baptising the five other
maidens who had begun to wring their
hands  before they  were  damp.
The one who went into the deep
dressed as a maiden "fit to kill" came out
of it looking���differently and nigh to
death. The hero had dove and in his
sturdy grip he caught the drowning
Ophelia by the���arm (Some one said
"Rats.") For long and long he had
sighed that dainty waist to encircle,
but it was not the dainty, dashing,
furbelowed maiden of his fevered
aspirations that he clasped; only "��
bundle of rags and a hank of hair,"
both very wet.
The lady's name was not given for
publication. They called her Maude
after the immersion. In the natural
order of things she will be called Mrs. X
shortly.
