KAIEN ISLAND
CLUB OPENING
NUMBER WALK  THROUGH  THE
NEW   BUILDING
Club Reported Out of Debt.-Formal
Opening the Occasion For a Grand
Bal|, After Which One Will Be
Given Monthly.
The announcement of a meeting of the
Mw Kaien  Island  Club  on  Saturday
seemed to be taken as a general invitation to visit the club rooms. Whether
this was so or not the club was ready
to entertain and did entertain over a
hundred people whose curiosity had been
excited by the large building on .Second
avenue. President Roerig was on hand
with several efficient aids, and they
were forced by circumstances into the
role of town lot promoters who say "Here
will be the Town Hall," here the Grand
Trunk million dollar hotel," and so forth.
But not so much "so forth," for there
was evidence in sight of what will be
in abundance, all things takon into consideration. Of course the visitors did not
walk on the Kolignor rugs costing
about two hundred dollars a front foot
that the club may or not have hereafter,
but of the early growing garden variety
of rug the club seems to have a corner
on the market.
These were for the informal opening
only, and in time the club may arrive
at a stage of atheletic culture which
may decree that its beautiful floors���
they are really beautiful���should not
be covered but merely accentuated by
rugs of the priceless type intended to
carry the prayers of the Most Faithful
to the One.
The hangings show no orginality as
most of the leading clubs have adopted
this same fabric, but in the design there
was scope for taste and the bustling
Nickerson seems to have selected the
the most chaste Madras that is called
upon to pay customs duty.
Where all the growing flowers and
potted plants came from is certainly
something of a mystery. Surely they were
not borrowed for the occasion. Even
f they were the club is now bound
to maintain this order of decoration, for
these plants, in their Majolica terra
cotta and silver pots lend much to the
general homelike effect of the club rooms.
The gynasium is a well lighted room
50 x 60 feet, pannelled from flooring to
the centre of its domelike ceiling. On
Saturday evening when President Roerig
and "Booster" Nickerson were showing
It to the ladies it was encumbered with a
Punching bag arrangement, two seta
"Pulleys, trapeze, horizontal bar, boxing
Eloves, fencing foils, feather and excelsior
mattresses and the paraphernalia for
���wry kind of stunt that fills several
Pages of the Sunday papers on the outside.
President Roerig explained that all

From this one enters the music room,
where there is a nine hundred dollar
Heintzman piano with an attachment by
means of which Jim Ross can play nearly
as well as Paderewski. Everywhere

fittings. But here the chairs are small,

running out an extension of fifty feet

studying moonlight effects on the harbor

CITY WILL BUY
B. C. CO. POLES
COUNCIL OFFER $5,500 FOR SERVICEABLE PLANT
Impromptu Meeting of Mayor and
Aldermen With Co's Representative
On Saturday. Matter Comes Up
At   City   Council   Tonight.
After a survey of the boilers and plant
of the burned out B. C. Tie and Lumber
Co's mill on Saturday, and a further inspection of the pole line, the mayor and
council with Messrs. G. I. Wilson,
James Ironside and Robert Kelly held
an impromptu meeting in the afternoon
to discuss the proposed purchase by the
city of this plant which under charter
it is incumbent on the city to buy.
"The boilers" said the mayor this
morning, "and some portions of the
plant are apparently in fairly good and
serviceable condition, and no doubt the
pole line can be made use of. It is of
course compulsory under the charter
that the city Bhould purchase this plant,
and after considering its value to us
we decided to make an offer, to the
gentlemen representing the B. C. Tie
and Lumber Co., of $5,500 for the
serviceable portions of the plant and pole
line.
This offer was made at the council's
impromptu meeting on Saturday, as the
party were anxious to get away by the
Prince George. The offer was not, however, made formally according to council
procedure rules. Most of the council
members were present, and most of the
members of the telephone and lighting
committee. The proposal to purchase
the B. C. Tie and Lumber Co's salved
plant and pole line at $6,500 has been
formally referred to the Telephone and
Lighting Committee for report, but it is
understood that the committee is to recommend this purchase.
"It is also understood that the representatives of the B. C. Tie and Lumber
Co., have accepted informally, and will
formally accept the city's offer. The
matter will come up before the council
tonight in the form of the Telephone and
Lighting committee's report and recommendation, and on the return of
M. G. I. Wilson with Mr. Ironside and
Mr. Kelly from Stewart the final arrangements affecting the purchase will j
be concluded."
INDUSTRY FOR
PRINCE RUPERT
JAMES   CARRUTHERS   PARTNER
OF SIR GEORGE DOUGHTY
Company Has Already Been Formed
With Capital of a Million to Establish Canadian Fisheries and
Cold' Storage   Company   Here.
FLYING OVER IRISH SEA
Aviator  Comes Within Three Hundred Yards of Succeeding
(Special to the Optimist) ���
London, Sept. 12.���Aviator Lorainp.
who is also a well known actor, failed in
his attempt to fly across the Irish Sea
by only three hundred yards. He claims
that his gasoline tank leaked. He announc
es that he will make the attempt again
in another week.
That a fishing industry on a very
big scale is to be established at Prince
Rupert is now something more than
a possibility, says the Vancouver Province. A company has been formed under
the designation of the Canadian Fisheries
and Cold Storage Company with a
capital of $1,000,000} and with such men
as Sir George Doughty and Mr. James
Carruthers a grain exporter of Montreal,
behind the scheme,there is some guarantee
of a permanent and paying industry for
Prince Rupert.
Mr. James Carruthers is one of the
few outsiders who accompanied the
Grand Trunk Pacific party on its trip
to the north and to a Province representative at the Hotel Vancouver
he made known his scheme to establish fisheries off Prince Rupert. He
stated that already 1000 feet of frontage have been, secured on the wharf
at Prince Rupert, and he is very sanguine as to the successful outcome
of the scheme. Not only Prince Rupert or even British Columbia will
be benifitted, he said, but the whole
of the Dominion will feel the effect.
Mr. Carruthers expressed the opinion
that the fisheries at Prince Rupert
have been overlooked and neglected
by capitalists and he thinks the scheme
inaugurated by Sir George Doughty
will give an impetus to the industry
which has great possibilities and will
stand tremendous expansion.
Mr. Carruthers criticised the attitude of the Prince Rupert city council in its attitude to the G. T. P. when
assessing its property for taxation.
He considered it foolish for Prince Rupert,
so early in its career, to commence to
fight a big corporation which, after all,
made it possible for Prince Rupert to
exist and predicted for the city a similar
fate as met Toronto when it fought the
railway companies.

(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 12.���The largest labor
congress in the history of Great Britain
convened at Sheffield this morning. President Haslam created great interest by
demanding the return of the tax-levying
privilege wgich was taken away by the
decision on the Osborne case.
Some excitment was caused by an unidentified delegate objecting to the
address to the lord mayor. He shouted
denunciations at him as an enemy
and not a friend of organized labor.
TWENTY-SIXTH  ANNUAL GATHERING   NOTABLE   ONE

(Special to the Optimist)
Fort William, Ont., Sept. 12.���The
twenty-sixth annual trade and labor
congress of Canada opened here this

said the work of the congress last year
was the most profitable in the history
of the body and predicted greater victories for organized labor this year in
Canada, Great Britain and the United
States.
There are one thousand and forty-six
delegates here, which is the largest congress ever held and the West, in particular

and Spokane won a single game from I same amount or more to have the com-
Tacoma. petitors start from its city.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 12.���Lord Brassey has
returned from Canada and as a result
of his study there of the problems produced by the emigration question, he
expresses his belief that the difficulties-
sorrounding the obtaining of employment in England can be settled and over
come by sending an increased number of
young men over seas. He is assured that
Canada would be pleased to receive as
many as could be sent over under proper
regulations.
Two most distinguished visitors arrived on the steamer Prince George
yesterday, in the persons of Sir Mackenzie Bowell and J. S. Willison, edi-
of the Toronto News. The latte-i
was accompanied by Mrs. Willison, and they were met at the wharf
by William Wright, of this city, a
nephew, and T. D. Pattullo. They
were escorted to the hack and driven
around town and to the residence of
Mr. Pattullo, where they were entertained. Later, Mr. Willison proceded on
to Stewart with Sir Mackenzie Bowell,
Mrs. Willison remaining here.
John Stephen Willison is one of the
foremost men of Canada and almost as
well known as Sir Wilfrid himself both
at home and abroad. He was for many
years the editor of the Toronto Globe
and was one of the founders of the
Toronto News, of which he still retains
the editorship. Early this year he
accepted the position of correspondent
of the London Times, and it is in this
capacity, and also as a vacation, that he
is paying a visit to Prince Rupert. A
good part of his time this year will be
taken up in lecturing tours, several engagements having already
been made for him in the United States.
He is the author of "Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and the Liberal Party," one of the ablest
political handbooks that has ever been
published, and also of "The Railway
Question in Canada," Personally he
is tall, with a close-cropped grey beard
and features of fine, intellectual force
and vigor.
His travelling companion, Sir Mackenzie Bowell, sports a full white beard
and could not fail to be recognized
any where from the many portraits of
him published during his long career
of prominence. He is also an editor,
being also the owner of the Belleville
Intelligencer. He resigned that position
when he entered the cabinet of Sir John
A. Masdonald in 1878, but after Sir
Wilfrid became premier he returned to
it. He was the leader of the opposition
in the senate until 1906, when he retired.
He organized the Colonial Conference
in June 1896 and was chosen chairman
of that important historical event. He
was created K. C. M. G. in 1896.
Sir Mackenzie was the guest of Mayor
Stork last night and proceeded on to
Stewart. Whether he will stay for a
few days or go right on with the boat
this evening, he will decide on his way
back from Stewart.
Seek Publicity  in  the Air.
It has been suggested that the Publicity Club and the Board of Trade,
or one of them, should offer a prize of
ten thousand dollars to the first
aviator who lands here from Vancouver,
the tail of the suggestion being that
Vancouver would be glad to offer the
City  Lots  Change  Hands
Messrs. M. M. Stephens & Co., Ltd.,
have disposed of Lots 17 and 18, in
Block 19, Section Six for the sum of
$2,000. E. Duke is the purchaser and
the lots of which he becomes owner
occupy an excellent situation on Seventh
avenue near the new school.
Musical    Metlakatla
The organ used in connection with the
work of the church of England Mission
at Metlakatla got rather shaky on its
notes recently and Rev. J. H. Keen who
has charge of the mission sent over to
Prince Rupert for Harry C. Evans to
adjust matters. While at Metlakatla
Mr. Evans found his services as piano
tuner largely in request and he returned
to Prince Rupert having left Metlakatla's
musical community more tuneful than
ever. uiitVlicF MINERSB^UCSAREFUL

New York, Sept. 5���Several wealthy
Americans traveled across the Atlantic

so anxious were they to get home. With
more than 900 passengers in the cabins,
the staterooms were all taken.
In the steerage of the Lusitania,
which came in today, was Judge Town-
send of Kansas City, and his family of
six. They offered any price for staterooms, but could not get them. A director of a local trust company and a
public service corporation also came
over in the steerage because all the
cabins were filled.
By actual count there were 420
Americans among the 1,124 steerage
passengers.   Of this number a dozen or

Winnipeg, Sept. 8.���Never in the
history of the Dominion of Canada
has there been such an influx of British
immigrants as during the period from
March 1 to August 1 of this year when
41,452 men, women and children from
England, Ireland and Scotland came
into Western Canada by way of Win-
nigpeg; 20,000 more than passed through
this city during the same time last year.
During the same period this year, 15,916
immigrants from Europe passed through
the Winnipeg Dominion immigration
office.
"I can say of the Britishers who
came this year," said Dominion Inspector J. Bruce Walker, "that they
have been of a higher type than any
that we have every handled before."
"In what respects?" was asked.
"Physically, mentally, morally and
financially," was the reply,
"The best proof of this," he continued, "is that those 41,452 newcomers have been absorbed by the
Western provinces and we have not
heard from any of them since they
passed through the office. I have
their names and addresses but scarcely any of the vast number have ever
applied for assistance. These people
from the British Isles are a most desirable lot."

Word has reached Vancouver that
the three Warn brothers are safe and
will be coming south shortly. It will
be remembered that the Warns went
into the Mackenzie River basin on a
mining venture, accompanied by a
man       named Harry        Waugh,
Months passed with no word from them,
but Waugh came out and committed
suicide at Seattle on his way to Chicago.
This led to enquiries as to the safety of
the Warns, but no news could be obtained. The Northwest Mounted Police were asked to make a search and
instructions were issued for patrols
to watch for traces of the party. Now
comes word that they are safe and
heading for home. Stanley Warn, one
of the party, is well known as a
swimmer and represented the V. A. C.
at all swimming meets three years ago.

Winnipeg, Sept. ��� 8.���Never in the
history of the Dominion of Canada
has there been such an influx of British
immigrants as during the period from
March 1 to August 1 of this year when
41,452 men, women and children from
England, Ireland and Scotland came
into Western Canada by way of Win-
nigpeg; 20,000 more than passed through
this city during the same time last year.
During the same period this year, 15,916
immigrants from Europe passed through
the Winnipeg Dominion immigration
office.
"I can say of the Britishers who
came this year," said Dominion Inspector J. Bruce Walker, "that they
have been of a higher type than any
that  we have every  handled  before."
"In what respects?" was asked.
"Physically, mentally, morally and
financially," was the reply,
"The best proof of this," he continued, "is that those 41,452 newcomers have been absorbed by the
Western provinces and we have not
heard from any of them since they
passed through the office. I have
their names and addresses but scarcely any of the vast number have ever
applied for assistance. These people
from the British Isles are a most desirable lot."

Missing Vancouver Men Will Be Coming South Shortly
Word has reached Vancouver that
the three Warn brothers are safe and
will be coming south shortly. It will
be remembered that the Warns went
into the Mackenzie River basin on a
mining venture, accompanied by a
man       named Harry      ��� Waugh,
Months passed with no word from them,
but Waugh came out and committed
suicide at .Seattle on his way to Chicago.
This led to enquiries as to the safety of
the Warns, but no news could be obtained. The Northwest Mounted Police were asked to make a search and
instructions were issued for patrols
to watch for traces of the party. Now
comes word that they are safe and
heading for home. Stanley Warn, one
of the party, is well known as a
swimmer and represented the V. A. C.
at all swimming meets three years ago.

Those Caught From the Dock Are
Mere Youths From Alaska
W. R. Lord, of the Port Nelson
cannery on the Naas river, left for
Stewart last night on the Prince George,
previous to going outside to spend the
winter. He says that on the Naas the
fishing season was just about the average
and no better, as the fall humpbacks and
cohoes were a failure���for what reason
no one seems to know.
Speaking of Sir George Doughty's
proposition to establish a large fishing
plant at Prince Rupert Mr. Lord, who
has had sixteen years experience of
fishing on this coast and in this vicinity,
says he has no doubt of the success of
such an enterprise, and that it would
start many fishing villages along the
coast as soon as there was a large depot
established where the fishermen could
find a market for their catch. There is
plenty of what Sir George calls white
fish, herring and cod in large quantity
and plenty of bass, but he did not know
about haddock and he had scarcely
ever seen a shad. Of bass there was
plenty of the finest kind and every
variety, and also of cod. The cod caught
from the dock were really Alaskan cod
though they did not have a beard. Those

RIVALRY IN SIGHT
The Vancouver Liberal newspaper takes exception to the remarks made by
Hon. Wm. Templeman concerning Prince Rupert and one can already see the
keen rivalry which will soon exist between this city of the north and the cities on
the sound.   The' World says :
"For Vancouver to be jealous of Prince Rupert would be the height of absurdity;
for the Hon. William Templeman to institute a comparison between Vancouver and
Prince Rupert to the disadvantage of Vancouver, eVen in course of a political speech,
is bad form. There have been times when relations between Vancouver and Victoria
have not been of the most cordial description on all questions; it is in the nature of
things that questions should arise on which it is impossible for a common point of
view, a viewpoint common to the two cities, to be reached, and Mr. Templeman
comes from Victoria, "but the comparison which Mr. Templeman made
between Vancouver and Prince Rupert, the other evening, does not stop short
of being unfriendly to Victoria, as well as to Vancouver. According to the Prince
Rupert press, Mr. Templeman said: "There was more reason to believe that Prince
Rupert would have 100,000 of a population in twenty years than that Vancouver
would have had it in that time. There was a far richer country contiguous to Prince
Rupert than had Vancouver. It was richer in minerals, in coal, silver etc. It had
larger fisheries in the Skeena than in the Fraser, and the fact that the Skeena was
altogether under the control of Canada made it easier to conserve the fishing. It
had the greatest deep sea fisheries, and the prairies back of it were rich,"
"At Sir Wilfrid Laurier's meeting in the Horse Show building, a week or two
ago, Mr. Templeman was eloquent in his tribute to Vancouver as a great city. Can
it be that Mr. Templeman realizes that in the race for greatness Victoria is rapidly
lapsing into the position of an "also ran" and that he is bound to find a rival for
Vancouver, even if the search takes some four hundred miles north of friendly?
"We have no desire to speak disparagingly of Prince Rupert, a town which
some of the ablest pioneers in the province are busy a-building. Its natural resources
are rich, and its opportunities of growth arc considerable; but it may be questioned
if there is one man in Vancouver who would say less for Victoria."

Prince Rupert has two prominent guests this week in the persons of Senator
Mackenzie Bowell ex-premier of Canada, and Mr. J. S. Willison. Both are newspaper
men and both national figures. Sir Mackenzie Bowell is to-day the dean of the
newspaper profession. He is one of Canada's grand old men and his ambition at
his age to see the new north cannot but arouse the admiration of the citizens of
this city. He is indeed a welcome guest. Mr. J. S. Willison, the editor of the Toronto
News is Canada's greatest political writer. His opinions have wide influence and
they are always spread with a lucidness and finish that makes his writings sough-
after by great men. These two influential men will gather some valuable informat
tion from the city of Prince Rupert and the prospects surrounding it.

Death   By   Forest   Fires
The tragedy of the forest has been
greater than ever this year, and leaves
its smoking and blackened trail as a grim
memorial. One cannot read of the desperate struggles of the fire-fighters j
without deep admiration for all who took
their lives in their hands and set out to
check the ravages of the hungry monster;
nor read of brave men overcome by a
foe swifter than the eagle, and showing
less mercy, without feeling the greatest
pity for their fate, and truest sympathy
with those who have lost brave husbands and sons and brothers. Many a
hero perished with no eye to see his
gallantry in those terrible waves of fire,
meeting a death, where duty placed him,
that the bravest might well quail before.
Fire is the arch-enemy of every settlement in a new country of thick woods
or wide prairies, and a terrible power it is.
To a superstitious mind fire is the
avenging spirit of the forest which,
disturbed in the sovereignty of years,
consumes itself and those who intrude
upon its peace rather than yield to the
settler's axe.   A terrible power ineded.
Such ghastly tragedies as this summer
has brought should surely move the
authorities to take strong preventive
measures without loss of time, so that
there may never be a repetition of the
horrors of 1910. A great deal might be
done to lessen the risk. In the meantime
many widows and fatherless children
weep, and there is great distress among
the homeless.

LIFE INSURANCE
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher:
"Your affairs may become involved,
and your property taken for debt,
but a thousand dollars insurance on
your life cannot be taken for debt;
cannot be alienated from your heirs;
and if you have chosen your Company discreetly, is subject to no [
commercial risks. It is as nearly
sure as anything earthly can be.''
Bishop Henry C. Potter.
"Life Insurance has advantages,
especially to persons of small means,
which it does not seem easy to over-
slate. To those of my own profession it furnishes a method of laying
by for 'a rainy day' of all the most
practicable and effectual."
President Wm. H. Taft:
"A man in office without means
must abandon the hope of making |
the future of his family luxuriously
comfortable. All a man can do under existing circumstances to safeguard his family is to get his life insured."
Hon. Theodore Roosevelt:
"Life Insurance increases the stability of the business world, raises
its moral tone and puts a premium
upon those habits of thrift and saving which are so essential to the
welfare of the people as a body.'

London, Sept. 7.���William Holman-
Hunt, the artist, died this morning.
Holman-Hunt, who was 83 years old
and the only survivor of the dis-J'
tinguished group of three painters
who became notable as the founders
of the so-called pre-Raphaelite movement, has not been in good health
for many months. A year ago he was
seriously ill, but recovered. He was
born in London in 1827 and exhibited
his first picture in 1846. He was one of
the first members of the Order of Merit.
His reputation as a painter was very high
in certain circles in England. Among his
best known works are "The Light of the
World," "The Saviour in the Temple,"
"The Shadow of Death," and "The
Triumph of Innocents."

Tke Joy of Living
Oh, life is a wonder'and death is a
blunder! It's good to be living and
strong! It's fine to be chaffing and joking
and laughing.andchortling a tra-la-Ja son g
It's great to be working like blitzen and
jerking your living from out of the soil.
Most all the repining and grunting and
whining is done by the loafers, you'll
note; the toilers and tillers, old industry's
pillars, no time to complaining devote;
they skirmiBh and rustle, they hump and
they hustle, and put up their hay in the
sun, they mow and they garner and don't
give a darn or a whoop for the indolent
one. Such fellows are useful; they're worth
a caboose full of men who have nothing
to do but grunt all together concerning
the weather, the crops, and the govt,
too. I tell you, dear chappy, if you would
be happy, you'll have to get busy and
work; there isn't much pleasure for
people of leisure, there isn't much use
for a shirk. The man who is lazy drives
busy men crazy, and over the transom
he's hurled; but things keep a coming
to folks who are humming, and this is a
bully old world.

STEWART  PREFERS   EDMONTON
TO PRINCE RUPERT
Labor Too Scarce and Expensive at
This End, Contractors Said To Be
Operating At Loss of Hundreds
Of   Dollars   Every   Day.
Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 9.���That
the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway through Northern British Columbia may be delayed a year or
two became apparent to railway men
here today, when it became known that
no effort would be made to get under
contract this year a large section between Aldermere and Tete Juane Cache.
All the rest of the line is now under
contract, and it was expected that on
the present trip President Hays, of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, would announce
the awarding of the contract.
It was a foregone conclusion that
this three-hundred-mile stretch would
go to Foley, Welch & Stewart, who are
building all the other parts of the line
from Edmonton to the coast. They have
material and steamers on the ground.
The reason for the delay is the scarcity
of labor, and the deadlock that has
arisen between the railway company
and the British Columbia government
on  the  Oriental  employment question.
Up to the time of his return to Vancouver from Prince Rupert, it is understood, President Hays intended to
award the final contract, but he was
met here by the declaration of Contractor J. W. Stewart that he did not
care to take up any more work and
that so far as he was concerned he
would care for further work by building westward from Edmonton rather
than East from Prince Rupert.
In order to finish the new transcontinental on time in 1913 it would be
necessary to rush work from both end.
It is admitted that dropping it at this
end will cost two gears' delay.
In Victoria last week Premier McBride is said to have forestalled any
application of the railway company for
the introduction of Oriental labor by
coming out with a declaration that the
agreement for white labor only would
be strictly adhered to. Labor is scarce
and expensive on the grade east of
Prince Rupert, and the contractors are
credited with now operating at a loss
of hundreds of dollars a day.

���Lloyd's Agent for Prince Rupert���C. W. PECK.
Just before President Hays started for
the east on Wednesday he was interviewed
at length by the Vancouver News Advertiser. In the course of the interview
is the following:
Mr. Hays is specially struck with
the great future of the city of Prince
Rupert. He declared last night that
in the course of a few years the present town would be a large city, and
that within the next decade it would
be the metropolis of northern British
Columbia, the commercial, social and
business centre of that section of the
province, a great railroad and manufacturing town, and a seaport that
would rival any on the Pacific coast.
"Prince Rupert is destined to become a great city," said Mr. Hays,
"and it will be only a matter of a few
years after the completion of the road
that it is one of the world's important
seaports and markets. Prince Rupert
will be to northern British Columbia
what Vancouver is to the southern section of the province, and I do not
think that the trade of either will interfere with the other. As a whole,
I am optimistic, and think that, with
the labor question once settled, we will
have clear sailing. I am delighted
with my trip, and have enjoyed it
much. It has been both an outing and
a tour of inspection for me, and has
dome me a great deal of good."

GOLD ON BANDITS' TRAIL
Posse Trace Bank Robber by Means
of Coins on Path
Morenci, Ariz., Sept. 7.���Along a
trail over hills, marked by gold and
silver fallen from bags of stolen treasure, a posse of sheriffs, deputies and
citizens last night pursued a bandit
who held up the Gaila Valley bank
yesterday and fled with $3500 taken
from the cash drawer. Thirty-five
thousand dollars stored in the vaults
was saved by Cashier J. C. Efferson,
who told the robber he did not know
the combination.
Sweeping the contents of the cash
drawer into sacks he rushed out, mounted
his horse, and raced away, exchanging
a fusillade of shots with the cashier
and the latter's assistant, S. E. Tyler.
Two small sacks of coin from the bank
have been recovered. The bandit crossed
the Frisco river hard pressed by his
pursuers.

All through the country of the Upper
Skeena and through the Bulkley valley
as well as here in Prince Rupert great
attention is being given to the town of
Sealey.
Located as is on both the river and
the railroad it is in a position to go forward rapidly.
With the pay station and general
warehouses of Foley Welch & Stewart on
the townsite and with every boat on
the river calling there the fact that
Sealey is fast becoming the big supply
base ��� of the Bulkley Valley is not to
be wondered at.
When the road eventually reaches
Sealey it will find a prosperous, thriving
town of no mean importance destined
to be the big business centre of Skeena
River and Bulkley Valley district.

T. L. Goodnough and George Leek
of this city, together with some Vancouver parties, have purchased the
interest of T. Z. Krizner, of the Albion
Bottling Works, and will take possession
at the end of this month. This concern
has outgrown entirely its present quarters
and it is the intention of its new owners
to greatly improve the present plant.
They will probably occupy the whole
of the ground floor at present location
and also construct a new warehouse in
the rear.
Mr. Krizner will probably lease the
upper floors of his building, and will
move to the Alice Arm and Goose Bay
district, where he will devote his entire
time to his mining interests, which have
turned out good.

LABOR APLENTY COMING

eventually be done depends upon the
financies.
Treasurer Nickerson had this in mind
while he and his confreers were showing
the new house. He called the members
to a meeting and had the satisfaction of
informing them that the club had its
informal opening entirely free of debt.
This led several leading members to
often solemnly remark���"Maxey, open
another." So the business meeting became somewhat of a revival, and a
number of those present sought the repentance bench and paid up.
This was the date up to which members might join on payment of $25, but
in the course of the discussion it was
pointed out that several intending to
join were not present and in the spirit
of good fellowship that prevailed the
time limit was extended to the 17th. After
it will be $35 for a limited period, and
after that the "ground floor" of membership will be closed.
On the 23rd of this month the club is
to be formally opened with a grand ball,
and there is to be a dance every month
during the winter months, by invitation
of course.
What strikes one in the new club
particularly is the number of potted
plants, many in flower, that have been
presented. Martin O'Reilly has presented a couple of handsome pictures,
and there will undoubtedly be many
such notable donations before the formal opening on the 23rd.

Matter of Railway Taxation To Be

P.O.Address   -   HAZELTON
The general meeting of the board of
trade will be held this evening, in the
board's rooms, when a report of the
council of the board on railway taxation
will be received and discussed. Then probably a resolution will be passed making
certain recommendations to the city
council, and a committee appointed to
present it and to discuss the matter with
the aldermen. As the matter is one of
great interest at the present time, it is
believed there will be a large meeting
of members of the board.
Nearly one hundred workers for the
railway construction were landed from
the Prince George last night, and the
greater part of them were dispatched
up the line on the regular construction
train this morning. Mr. Vernor Smith,
manager for the contractors, said he
thought there would be no more difficulty in securing enough men, as there
would be two hundred coming in by the
Prince Rupert on Wednesday and as
many as could be sent on each succeeding Grand Trunk steamer.

can safely say, without fear of contradiction, that the Exchange Grill, is
the only house in Prince Rupert,
IN ANY LINE, that receives regular
shipments of fresh eggs direct from the
ranch. Our weekly consignments amount
to three cases, containing 1,080 eggs,
which we guarantee to be absolutely
fresh. This number is sufficient to provide breakfast for fifty people daily.
We will serve them in the shell, and will
pay a five dollar gold piece to the patron
who discovers one egg which is not
strictly right. We have the equipment
and staff to give you speedy and courteous
service.
