|Ald. Pattullo Said One Scale
Was Out 15 Per Cent.
[Aid. Hilditch Asked Questions About
Civic Matters ��� Who Purchases
City's Supplies���Who Gives Lines
and Grades to Builders.
Aside from the discussion on city advertising and printing the session of the
I council on Saturday night was marked
I by questions from Aid. Hilditch and explanations from other members. He
J first wanted to know about the electric
Blight plant and was told that the engineer had not yet reported. Then he
��� wanted to know how the city's supplies
���were being purchased, and was told
���that City Clerk Woods purchased
I all the small supplies and divided the
���business among all the merchants. Next
Ihe asked who was to furnish street
I lines and grades for prospective builders
land this will be decided Monday night.
I Aid. Pattullo sprung a little surprise
I when he said that he got on one scale
Ion the wharf which was used for weighing
Icoal and found that it gave 15 per cent
more weight than it should. He asked
leave to introduce a by- law regulating
weights and measures.
All the members were present.
A couple of petitions for plank
roads were received and referred to the
Streets Committee.
Boilers   Not   Suitable
In reference to the B.C. Tie and Timber
Co's boilers Aid. Lynch reported that
he with the mayor and an engineer had
gone out to see the boilers and found
that they would not be worth much to
the city and they did not deem it advisable to purchase them. They had
seen the Sash and Door Factory people
and they will make a proposition in a
few days.
Electric  Light Plant
Under the head of inquiries Aid.
Hilditch wanted to know what was being
done about his report on the electric
light plant. He had gone to a great
deal of trouble to gather the data and it
was time that something was being done.
He asked that the matter be taken up
tonight and settled.
The mayor said that all the electric

ALFONSO HAS NARROW ESCAPE
| Whole Series of Marine Accidents Reported.
|King of Spain Under Falling Mast of

Seven   Injured   By   Explosion.
(Special to the Optimist)
Cowes, Isle of Wight, August 8.���
IKing Alfonso of Spain was the guest
���of Sir Thomas Lipton yesterday, on the
���yacht Shamrock. Just as they were
loft Ryde pier on the Solent, and sailing
Jin a stiff breeze the mast snapped and
I crashed to the deck. The ruler of Spain
���Was chatting with his host at the time
and had a very narrow escape.
Vancouver, August 8.���-The steamer
Schelt ran on the rocks at the entrance
to the Narrows yesterday morning and
sunk. There were fourteen passengers
and they and the crew were all taken
off safely and walked through Stanley
Park to town.
New York, August 8.���Commander
Peary's arctic ship.the Roosevelt lying
at her dock at Brooklyn, was badly
damaged by fire yesterday. How the
fire originated is not yet known.
London, August 8.���An explosion
occurred yesterday on the sub-marine
A 1, moored in the Thames. Seven of
the men were seriously injured.
[THOUSAND BOXES
OF STRAWBERRIES
I SHIPPED    TO    THE     SOUTHERN
CITIES FROM PRINCE RUPERT
Fruit of the Very Finest Quality
Grown in Lakelse and Kitsumkalum Valleys.���Brought Highest
Prices  in  South.
Lakelse   and   Kitsumkalum    straw-
bt-rrit-a  are   already   developing   a   re-
i PUtation  that   will   do  much  towards
j settling the beautiful and fertile valleys
I which lie back of Prince Rupert and which
I will in a couple of years provide this
cily with its produce.   Last year a few
boxes of strawberries were picked and
I brought down.     They were very fine
and superior to berries brought up from
the south.  This year the residents of the
two valleyB   planted   more  vines  and
dt ring the past couple of weeks have
I been making large shipments to Prince
Rupert, Seattle and Vancouver.     The
berries are of   finest   quality  and bring
the highest price, making their cultiva-
; tion very profitable. Last week one thousand boxes were sent south and were iii
jsuch demand that the price was no object.
The great feature of the Lakelse and
Kitsumkalum strawberries is that they
are of the very choicest variety and they
come in just at the close of the season in
California, Washington, and other southern district?, thus making a particularly
long season on the coast for fresh fruits.
Next season there will easily be a market
a hundred per cent greater for them
than there was this year, and there is a
fortune in their cultivation in the valleys
along the Grand Trunk Pacific.
Saturday and Sunday Baseball
Vancouver, August 8.���(Special)���In
the league games of Saturday Vancouver
scored three, Tacome one; Seattle three,
Spokane four. At Tacoma Sunday, Vancouver played in two games. In the first
one she scored two to Tacoma's five.
Second game was called off on account
of darkness with a score of seven to five
in favor of Vancouver. In the Sunday
game at Seattle the latter scored nine
to Spokane one.
Baden-Powell at Winnipeg
Winnipeg, August 8. ��� (Special)���
General Baden-Powell arrived jere this
morning and left immediately for the
coast.
May Be   Another Strike
Montreal, August 8.-(Special)-The
engineers on the Eastern division of the
Canadian Pacific railway are demanding
an increase. Negotiations with the company began this morning.
Sunday was a busy day for the boats.
Every kind of craft that would float at
all was brought into commission and
carried away its quota of pleasure seekers.
The Chieftain made two trips to Metlakatla with full cargoes, all the gasoline
yachts, fishing boats, canoes, row-boats,
punts and rafts took loads to Schwatlans, Metlakatla, up the river, to Tuck's
Inlet and various other points. It was a
glorious day both on land and water and
had boats been available many more
would have gone out. The town is now
big enough said one man, for a big steamer to run Sunday excursions. The G. T. P.
Prince Albert or Bruno lies here on Sundays and it would pay the G. T. P. in
more ways than one to carry an excursion
out on Sundays.
MUCH  TRAVELLED  HAT.

Railway      Construction      Promising
But Has Only Half a Force.
Arrived   By   Dominion   Express   For
J.  Y. Rochester.
J. Y. Rochester received a gaily dec
orated straw hat from some of his friends
in the States. The hat came express
in bond and although it has travelled
many thousands of miles and on many
railways and in charge of many express
companies, it is still in a good state of
preservation. There are some twenty tags
on the hat now, and one tag bore instructions to J. Y. to send the hat on North. It
is thought that the Eskimos will need it
before the summer is over. Mr Rochester
tent it on.

(Special to the Optimist)
Juneau, August 6.���Pilot Richardson
was in -charge of the Princess May when
she struck the reef off Sentinel island
in Lynn canal. The weather was calm
at the time but there was a thick haze
which prevented anything being seen
ahead. All the passengers were taken off
without any panic, and the baggage was
also taken off and all landed safely on
Sentinel island. All the mails were also
landed and the express, which continued
a large amount of Yukon gold dust and
gold bricks.

towed by launches. On the trip the
women and children suffered severely from
cold.
W. C. C. Mehan, general superintendent of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
was out on the line yesterday and said
this morning that the track laying
was finished as far as Fiftymile on
Saturday night and everything appeared
to be going on nicely.
"Labor, however, is still very scarce,
observed Mr. Mehan, this morning.
"We have not yet seen any benefit from
the change made in the regulations
that railway labor should be admitted
without certain restrictions. We are
still working with about half a gang all
the time. We are making good progress
but could easily double it if we could
only get the men."

SIR WILFRID IN  A COLLISION
Premier and Minister Graham
Slightly Injured.
Special Train Met Fast Freight on
Same Track.��� Premier Slightly
Cut and Bruised and Minister
Graham  Gets  Sprained    Wrist.
(Special to the Optimist)
Moosejaw, August 6.���The special
train upon which Sir Wildfrid Laurier
and his party were travelling in a special
car came into a head-on collision with a
fast freight near Pense this morning.
The car was not much damaged but the
premier was cut about the face and bruised
slightly and Minister Graham sustained
a badly sprained wrist.
The crews of both engines managed
to jump to safety, but Conductor Cook
had several ribs broken and iB in a precarious   condition.
The special was brought back to
Moosejaw, where it was repaired and
the party in the afternoon continued
the journey to Battleford, where the
party will spend Sunday.
It is believed the collision was due to
the freight having overrun its orders.
Moosejaw, August 8.���Sir Wilfrid
Laurier spent a quiet day yesterday
and arose this morning ready to continue
his journey none the worse for the
collision, except for a few patches of
diacodium plaster.

CIVIC DISCRIMINATION
A communication from the local Typographical Union to the city council
informing that august body that The Optimist is not to have any more city printing
or advertising, was discussed at the council meeting on Saturday evening with the
result that the ban was placed on this paper. The Optimist no longer carries the
T. U. label.
The publishers of this paper have no desire to force the petty annoyances of its
business upon the public but this incident shows up rather a peculiar conditions of
civic affairs. By way of explanation it should be said that the Optimist has the
largest investment in printing plant in the city; it employs union printers; it has
the largest pay-roll in the trade; it is doing the largest printing business; it has the
highest paid printers on its staff; it turns out the best quality of product���printing
that cannot be discounted anywhere in the province; its employees have the same
hours, and conditions equally good or better than those existing in other shops in
the city, yet this paper is refused a share cr any part of the civic work���work to be
paid for by your money. The city council refuses to accept the highest grade of
work, or give employment to the most skilled and best paid printer.
Incidentally it should also be said that The Optimist is working under exactly
the same conditions to-day as it has for some months past when it was known ag a
label shop. It is not now a label shop because the union organization did not come
through with their part of the agreement.
Thus The Optimist which has been "boosting" Prince Rupert since long before
the council or typographical union existed has been excommunicated from civic
rights because the members of the city council were weak enough to pledge themselves
to the dictation of a lodge about which they practically know nothing. The aldermen
have decided to represent an organization which last election possessed half a dozen
votes to the distinct disadvantage of the ratepayers of the city. If the council's
judgment in the various branches of business involved in their duties is no better
than is their conception of the printing and advertising conditions in the city then
the ratepayers will have something to harass their peace of mind.
Aid. Mobley says he believes in using the daily papers for advertising but he
prefers to be stubborn. That is surely a condition that defies argument.
The printers' devil says that the pecuniary loss which the Optimist is likely to
sustain by being refused civic printing and advertising is not likely to effect the overdraft at the bank. .
The city council has not yet accepted any of the free advertising offers made in
Saturday's Optimist. Apparently the boys cannot even start an advertising campaign.
If any alderman realized the real difference between a label printing shop
and a non-label shop he would laugh at himself.
The name of King Jack Miller on the Laurier reception committee is conspicuous by its absence.  Will King Jack submit quietly to this oversight?
ON WEIGHTS
AND MEASURES
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
light plant data had been handed to the
engineer and in a very short time he
will have a report ready. Personally
thc mayor said he was in favor of having
an electric light plant put in here pretty
quick."We cannot let the streets go
dark this winter."
Purchaaing     Supplies
Aid. Hilditch also asked how the city
supplies were being purchased and if it
was done by tender or how it was done.
The mayor said that the city clerk
was p urchasing all small supplies and he
was dividing it among all the merchants.
Scales   Were   Wrong
Aid. Pattullo moved for leave to
introduce a by-law regula ting the weighting of coal and adulterating of food
stuffs. He said that the other day he
stepped on a coal scales and found he
weighed 250 pounds. As a matter of
fact he only weighed 175 pounds.
A difference of 15 per cent was a pretty
good profit and it was time that steps
were taken to stop it.
The weights and measures by-law
was read a first time and passed.
The sewer by-law was then read a
second time and the council went into
committee of the whole to consider it.
Street Grades and Lines
Aid. Hilditch asked who it was who
gave the proposed street lines to those
who are about to erect buildings and who
was responsible for such lines. He had
tried to get grades and street lines and
he understood that the city engineer
had told his assistant that it was not
within the city's province to give street
lines to builders. The speaker claimed
that it was the duty of the city to furnish
those street lines and to accept the
responsibility.
The mayor said that the G. T. P.
grades were to stand good. He would
not like to see the city assume such responsibility. If they did it would put
the land surveyors out of business. It
would also put the city in a position (or
heavy damage suits in case of a mistake
of any kind.
Aid. Hilditch again said the city
should   assume   the   responsibility.
Aid. Pattullo said that the bench
marks were already placed and if any were
wrong or misplaced the city would put
them right. After that the provincial
land surveyors should be allowed to do
the work.
Aid. Barrow said that land surveyors
should do the work, but if the city were
to take it over it would not affect thc
surveyors now here as they are the only
ones who know anything about the work
here. A new surveyor could not come in
and do anything. But for many years
it will remain in the hands of those who
laid the city out. Still if the city took
the matter over and had all the information on file it would be very valuable
and prospective builders wouitl be willing
to pay handsomely for the information.
The matter was referred to the city-
engineer to report on at Monday night's
meeting when the question will come
again.

said they left Skeagway three to four
hours before the Princess May was

than had already been received here.
The Princess Beatrice arrived Saturday night and immediately transferred
her Stewart passengers and freight and
sailed for Juneau to pick up the passengers of the Princess May. She will sail
from there direct to Vancouver and will
not touch at Prince Rupert on the way
down.

The Humboldt came in Saturday
afternoon from Skagway but brought
no news of the wreck of the Princess

three or four hours ahead of the May.
She had quite a crowd of passengers and
took on here: J. A. Paul, Marie Lewis,

PRINTERS UNION
TAKES A HAND
IN ADVISING THE COUNCIL HOW
TO CONDUCT ITS BUSINESS
Recommends that the Optimist Gets
No Advertising or Printing Until
It Gets the Lable Again���Aldermen
Pass a Motion to Acknowledge
The Union's Letter.
A whole lot of time of the city council
was occupied on Saturday night by another diccussion on the city advertising
and printing, and also a criticism of the
press. This time the Optimist was the
particular press knocked. The discussion was brought about by a communication from the Typographical
Union the particulars of which are given
below.
A communication was read from the
Secretary of the Prince Rupert Typographical Union stating that ,,the
Union Label had been withdrawn from
the Optimist owing to that office not
being able to come to an arrangement
with the union, and recommended that
no advertising or printing be placed
with the Optimist until such condition
is altered.
Aid. Barrow said he did not think
that the time of the council should be
taken up with such matters as there
was a resolution on the minute book
calling for the unipn lable on all printing.
Aid. Hilditch said that all city printing must carry the union lable. He would
not stand for anything else.

mixed up in the debate and this prolonged the talk somewhat.
Aid. Hilditch said that because the
Journal was selected for legal advertising
it was not right to advertise for tenders
for public works in a bye-weekly paper.
In private business we do not advertise
in the|paper with the smallest circulation.
Advertisements (or tenders, positions,
etc should be placed in at least one daily
paper.
Aid. Pattullo said that Aid. Hilditch
argument was about as weak an argument
as could be brought out. He said that
the editor of the bye-weekly paper told
him that if other papers got advertising
from the city at lOcents a line he would
charge 10 cents a line, and he would
be justified in doing so.
Aid. Mobley pointed out that the
city advertised in a semi-weekly and
not a bye-weekly as Aid. Hilditch said.
He would l�� glad to use the other papers
(or purposes that required wide cir-1
culation. But he was a stubborn fellow
and any time any one tried to force
him to do anything as the daily papers
were trying he would stay here until
the end of his time and not give any advertising to any other paper.
So far as the Union's letter in reference
to thc union trouble at the Optimiat was
concerned, he said that he presumed it
was only temporary and would ba fixed
up in due time. In the meantime the
resolution on the minute book would
regulate all cases of that nature.
Aid. Pattullo said that so far as he
was concerned the advertising question
had better be settled now and forever.
Personally he would stay with their
contract and grant no advertising to
any other paper.
Mayor Stork asked if the semiweekly
paper had signed a contract for advertising.
City Clerk Woods replied "No"
"You hud better have one drawn up
at once and get it signed," said the
mayor.
A motion was then passed thut the
the Typographical Union letter be acknowledged.

CIVIC DISCRIMINATION
A communication from the local Typographical Union to the city council
informing that august body that The Optimist is not to have any more city printing
or advertising, was discussed at the council meeting on Saturday evening with the
result that the ban was placed on this paper. The Optimist no longer carries the
T. U. label.
The publishers of this paper have no desire to force the petty annoyances of its
business upon the public but this incident shows up rather a peculiar conditions of
civic affairs. By way of explanation it should be said that the Optimist has the
largest investment in printing plant in the city; it employs union printers; it has
the largest pay-roll in the trade; it is doing the largest printing business; it has the
highest paid printers on its staff; it turns out the best quality of product���printing
that cannot be discounted anywhere in the province; its employees have the same
hours, and conditions equally good or better than those existing in other shops in
the city, yet this paper is refused a share or any part of the civic work���work to be
paid for by your money. The city council refuses to accept the highest grade of
work, or give employment to the most skilled and best paid printer.
Incidentally it should also be said that The Optimist is working under exactly
the same conditions to-day as it has for some months past when it was known as a
label shop. It is not now a label shop because the union organization did not come
through with their part of the agreement.
Thus The Optimist which has been "boosting" Prince Rupert since long before
the council or typographical union existed has been excommunicated from civic
rights because the members of the city council were weak enough to pledge themselves
to the dictation of a lodge about which they practically know nothing. The aldermen
have decided to represent an organization which last election possessed half a dozen
votes to the distinct disadvantage of the ratepayers of the city. If the council's
judgment in the various branches of business involved in their duties is no better
than is their conception of the printing and advertising conditions in the city then
the ratepayers will have something to harass their peace of mind.
Aid. Mobley says he believes in using the daily papers for advertising but he
prefers to be stubborn. That is surely a condition that defies argument.
The printers' devil says that the pecuniary loss which the Optimist is likely to
sustain by being refused civic printing and advertising is not likely to effect the overdraft at the bank..
The city council has not yet accepted any of the free advertising offers made in
Saturday's Optimist. Apparently the boys cannot even start an advertising campaign.
If  any alderman realized the real difference between a label printing shop
and a non-label shop he would laugh at himself.
The name of King Jack Miller on the Laurier reception committee is conspicuous by its absence.  Will King Jack submit quietly to this oversight?
ON WEIGHTS
AND MEASURES
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
light plant data had been handed to the
engineer and in a very short time he
will have a report ready. Personally
the mayor said he was in favor of having
an electric light plant put in here pretty
quick."We cannot let the streets go
dark this winter."
Purchasing    Supplies
Aid. Hilditch also asked how the city
supplies were being purchased and if it
was done by tender or how it was done.
The muyor said that the city clerk
was p urchasing all small supplies and he
was dividing it among all the merchants.
Scales   Were   Wrong
Aid. Pattullo moved for leave to
introduce a by-law regula ting the weighting of coal and adulterating of food
stuffs. He said that the other day he
stepped on a coal scales and found he
weighed 250 pounds. As a matter of
fact he only weighed 175 pounds.
A difference of 15 per cent was a pretty
good profit and it was time that steps
were taken to stop it.
The weights and measures by-law
was read a first time and passed.
The sewer by-law was then read a
second time and the council went into
committee of the whole to consider it.
Street Grades and Lines
Aid. Hilditch asked who it was who
gave the proposed street lines to those
who are about to erect buildings and who
was responsible for such lines. He had
tried to get grades and street lines and
he understood that the city engineer
had told his assistant that it was not
within the city's province to give street
lines to builders. The speaker claimed
that it was the duty of the city to furnish
those street lines and to accept the
responsibility.
The mayor said that the G. T. P.
grades were to stand good. He would
not like to see the city assume such responsibility. If they did it would put
the land surveyors out of business. It
would also put the city in a position for
heavy damage suits in case of a mistake
of any kind.
Aid. Hilditch again said the city
should   assume   the   responsibility.
Aid. Pattullo said that the bench
marks were already placed and if any were
wrong or misplaced the city would put
them right. After that the provincial
land surveyors should be allowed to do
the work.
Aid. Barrow said that land surveyors
should do the work, but if the city were
to take it over it would not affect the
surveyors now here as they are the only
ones who know anything about the work
here. A new surveyor could not come in
and do anything. But for many years
it will remain in the hands of those who
laid the city out. Still if the city took
the matter over and had all the information on file it would be very valuable
and prospective builders would be willing
to pay handsomely for the information.
The matter was referred to the city
engineer to report on at Monday night's
meeting when the question will come
again.

The Humboldt got in Saturday afternoon from Skagway, but her captain
said they left Skeagway three to four
hours before the Princess May was
due to leave so he had no more finorma-
tion regarding the wreck of that vessel
than had already been received here.
The Princess Beatrice arrived Saturday night and immediately transferred
her Stewart passengers and freight and
sailed for Juneau to pick up the passengers of the Princess May. She will sail
from there direct to Vancouver and will
not touch at Prince Rupert on the way
down.
The Inlander left about noon today
for Hazelton and Skeena river points

The Humboldt came in Saturday
afternoon from Skagway but brought
no news of the wreck of the Princess
May, as the Humboldt left Skagway
three or four hours ahead of the May.
She had quite a crowd of passengers and

A whole lot of time of the city council
was occupied on Saturday night by another diccussion on the city advertising
and printing, and also a criticism of the
press. This time the Optimist was the
particular press knocked. The dis-.
cussion was brought about by a communication from the Typographical
Union the particulars of which are given !
below.
A communication was read from the
Secretary of the Prince Rupert Ty-1
pographical Union stating that the
Union Label had been withdrawn from
the Optimist owing to that office not
being able to come to an arrangement
with the union, and recommended that
no advertising or printing be placed
with the Optimist until such condition
is altered.
Aid. Barrow said he did not think
that the time of the council should be
taken up with such matters as there
was a resolution on the minute book
calling for the union lable on all printing.
Aid. Hilditch said that all city print-'
ing must carry the union lable. He would
not stand for anything else.
Aid. Mclntyre and Mayor Stork said !
they would stand by their pre-election
pledges for union lable.
Aid. Pattullo said that all the aldermen
were not pledged to the union lable,
although most of them were. He for
one was not.
Then the question of advertising got
mixed up in the debate and this prolonged the talk somewhat.
Aid. Hilditch said that because the
Journal was selected for legal advertising
it was not right to advertise for tenders
for public works in a bye-weekly paper.
In private business we do not advertise
in thejpaper with the smallest circulation.
Advertisements for tenders, positions,
etc should be placed in at least one daily
paper.
Aid. Pattullo said that Aid. Hilditch
argument was about as weak an argument
as could be brought out. He said that
the editor of the bye-weekly paper told
him that if other papers got advertising
from the city at lOcents a line he would
charge 10 cents a line, and he would
be justified in doing so.
Aid. Mobley pointed out that the
city advertised in a semi-weekly and
not a bye-weekly as Aid. Hilditch said.
He would be glad to use the other papers
for purposes that required wide circulation. But he was a stubborn fellow
and any time any one tried to force
him to do anything as the daily papers
were trying he would stay here until
the end of hiri time and not give any advertising to any other paper.
So far as the Union's letter in reference
to the union trouble at the Optimist was
concerned, be said that he presumed it
was only temporary and would be fixed
up in due time. In the meantime the
resolution on the minute book would
regulate all cases of that nature.
Aid. Pattullo said that so far as he
was concerned the advertising question
had better be settled now and forever.
Personally he would stay with their
contract and grant no advertising to
any other paper.
Mayor Stork asked if the semiweekly
paper had signed a contract for advertising.
City Clerk Woods replied "No"
"Vou had better have one drawn up
at once and get it signed," said the
mayor.
A motion was then passed that the
the Typographical Union letter be acknowledged.

Weary of the Superior Airs of
American Federation.���Trade and
Labor Council of Opinion Time
Has  Arrived   to   Break  Away.
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, August 8.���At the meeting
of the Trades and Labor council last
night a number of speeches were made
upon the subject of the domination of
the American Federations in the labor
matters of this country. It was pointed
out on the one side that the American
union strength was something to be
relied upon in times of emergency; on
the other hand that it was humiliating
to have to rely upon such support.
Several speakers were of opinion that
the unions of Canada did not have to rely
upon such support, coupled, as it was,
with an implied control by the unions
of another country, and this opinion was
well supported.
It was the sense of the meeting that
the time had now arrived for the Canadian unions to break away from the dominations of the American federation,
and as a result a motion will probably
be carried to this effect at the next
meeting of the council.
Even the armless man would like
to take things into his own hands.
The C. P. R. has under contemplation the erection If a large tourist hotel
at Canterbury Point, in the Windemere
country.

No reasonable man goes without protection against loss from

your time has as distinct a value
as your property, or that your

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?
