KING AND HIS MOTHER ESCAPED
Rebels Privy To Their Fleeing Country.���Are Taking Refuge In
Republican Country of "Les Rois En Exile."���Spain
Threatened  With Similar Revolution.
(Special to the Optimist)
Lisbon, Oct. 6.���Alfonso Costa, the
minister of justice under the new republican form of government, in reply to
official inquiries makes the announcement that the royal family has fled from
Portugal. He denies the story that the
king is at Masfra rallying royal troops.
He distinctly states that there are no
royal troops, but that all have sworn
their allegiance to the new government.
The minister states that King Manuel's
escape was a part of the plan of the
revolutionists, who by formal vote
passed a resolution that he be permitted
to flee from the country. He adds that
the provisional government is showing
great strength in repressing disorders
and punishing looters, and that it is
making a splendid impression in the
capital city and the immediate neighborhood.
Manuel Fled in Disguise
London, Oct. 6.���A. Reuter's despatch
declares that King Manuel and the Queen
Mother passed San Sebastian this morning, in disguise, on their way to France.
Newt of King Confirmed
Paris, Oct. 6.���-The Central News
Agency has a despatch from Alfonso
Costa, the new Republican minister of
justice, that King Manuel and his
mother are safe and that both are at sea.
Two Hundred Were Killed
Badajos-on-the-Frontier, Oct. 6.���Two
hundred were killed yesterday, and four
hundred wounded, in the attack upon
the royal palace, according to the refugees arriving here this morning. It is
claimed that the total of fatalities is
certain to be much larger than that
stated.
Revolt Spread* to Spain
Madrid, Oct. 6.���The best and most
loyal troops of Spain have been ordered
to the Portugal frontier, and this fact
has given rise to the belief that Spain
will aid the Portuguese loyalists.   The
republicans here state that in the event
of such being the case, civil war in Spain
must inevitably follow.'
The Republican club of this city,
which celebrated the victory achieved
by the Republicans of Portugal, was
raided by the police last night and the
riot following was sternly suppressed by
the calling in of troops to assist the
police.
Republicans Fighting
Barcelona, Oct. 6.���There were constant clashes here today between the
Republicans and the military. The
situation is rapidly getting beyond the
control of the authorities and Madrid
has been asked to send reinforcements.
The Republicans planted the red and
green flags of the Portugal rebels on
every public building in the city. After
fierce fighting the soldiers tore these
down and destroyed them. They were
replaced by others which were again
torn down.

General Superintendent Mehan, of the
G. T. P. offices here, is well satisfied with
the progress of the line at present. The
steel is at Mile 87, and before long will
be at Kitselas 103 miles from Prince
Rupert. Ballasting of the track has
been in progress for some days and the
company is advertising for sixty men for
this work. There is some good ballast
about Mile 66, and more work will be
doing at ballasting when the big ballast
pits at Mile 95 are reached.
But there won't be any passenger
service of trains out to Kitselas for
some time yet General Superintendent
Mehan stated. To run passenger trains
on the skeleton track is not advisable,
and the ballasting will not be completed
for a little while yet.
The little bit of grading which is to
be completed between the new Kelly
Douglas warehouse and the G. T. P.
offices and the main yards is being
rapidly finished now that the offices
have been moved forward the few feet
necessary to give th-i grade room to
come through.

Accident of Brother of Joe McGrath
at Essington Yesterday���He Is in
Hospital and Progressing Favorably.
G. T. P. Annex Will Go
The question of the removal of the
G. T. P. Inn Annex which is partly on
the line of Second Avenue haa been
before the city since S. P. MeMordie
started work on his grading contract,
and yesterday General Superintendent
Mehan informed Mayor Stork that Mr.
Chamberlain had given him instructions
to proceed with the removal of the
annex to enable the street grading to
progress.
Joe McGrath's brother who broke his
jawbone yesterday morning at Essington,
was taken in a row boat to the G. T. P.
hospital from the steamer Port Simpson
at night, and is in a fair way to have his
hurt healed.
The accident happened to him while
he was at work stone-cutting in the
quarry at Essington. He slipped and
fell head first down the rock face narrowly escaping injury to the skull. As
it is, his hurt ia s painful one and serious
enough. He was attended at Essington
by Dr. McPhee, and taken in the steamer
Port Simpson to Prince Rupert where
Captain Jackman endeavored to arrange
for his being conveyed to the hospital.
There was some delay over this, but S. A.
Ensign Johnstone rustled round for the
necessary permit and after having been
seen by Dr. Tremayne and Dr. Eggert
McGrath was removed to the hospital.

DYNAMITED TREADWELL
Special to the Optimist
Juneau, Oct. 6.���An attempt
was made to blow up the Treadwell ditch with dynamite last
nignt. Special deputies were
sworn in and twenty men have
been arrested on suspicion of
complicity in the plot.
O. M. Helgerson of Prince Rupert has
just turned another big real estate deal.
This time he is the buyer and it is Port
Mann property. Mr. Helgerson has
been looking for an active, market and
this week purchased a block of 118 acres
of what is known as the Paterson ranch.
This is adjoining Mackenzie and Mann's
townsite of Port Mann, just opposite
New Westminster.
The price has not yet been made
public but it is understood to be in the
neighborhood of $126,000. It is the
biggest deal in Port Mann property yet
made and real estate men in Vancouver
anticipate that Mr. Helgerson can clean
up at least $60,000 by the end of the
present year.
The property Mr. Helgerson purchased lies just beyond the block held
by the Prince Rupert syndicate.
The navigation of the Skeena was the
all-absorbing topic of discussion along
the water-front during the day, and the
usually placid temper of Captain Jack-
man, of the Port Simpson, was becoming
ruffled more than once. His boat was
there and why could he not take on
their freight. They had only two hundred pounds, or eleven hundred pounds,
or whatever the individual quantity
might be. He might screw that into a
corner. The Captain said over and over
again to these applicants:
"I start out tomorrow morning at
eight o'clock with eighty tons, which is
a big load considering the stage of the
water and the further fact that I have a
large crowd of passengers. I cannot
take a pound more. Most of this eighty
tons is taken up with the office outfit
of the engineering corps, contracted for
some time ago.
"I cannot tell, and nobody else can
tell, whether I shall be able to make
another trip or not. I am hoping that
I will, but I am not going to enter anto
any contracts with regard to it. I may
be able to make two trips, though I
hardly think so."
Mr. McMaster said notices had been
sent out that no more freight for the
Skeena river would be accepted after
October first. In the past two yeais
navigation on the Skeena had closed on
November third of fourth, and in all
probability the same conditions would
prevail this season. Even under those
favorable circumstances there would be
about four hundred tons left in the
warehouses, because, although the steamers might be able to make a few more
trips, they could take only light loads.
EXTENDING THE WHARF
Will   Do  Something   to   Lessen  the
Constantly Recurring Conjestion
Two Prisoners From Hazelton
Provincial Chief Constable Wynn received notification by wire today that
two prisoners charged with theft are
coming down from Hazelton. The
prisoners' names were not stated. They
are proceeding to Westminster.
Back to the Post of Duty
Aid. Naden returned to his place at
the city council board last night and was
greeted with a storm of aldermanic
cheers and cries of "Speech! Speech!"
He smiled and returned the greetings of
his fellow aldermen, but did not contribute any oratory either then 6r during
the rest of the meeting, but enthusiastically reponded to the movement to
adjourn.
The big pile driver has been moved to
the edge of the water at the foot of
Centre street, and is to be engaged for
some time making an extension of the
wharf from that point north. From the
present position of the pile driver the
wharf is to run out at an angle to near
the Davis boathouse. The company has
only one hundred and fifty teet of dock
available at present in this part, and the
extension will increase this to three
hundred and twenty feet. So that
instead of one section of five hundred and
seventy feet, the company will have two
sections, the new one of three hundred
and twenty feet and the old one of about
four hundred.
The work will employ about fifteen
men for the next three or four months.
The dock is also to be repaired under the
present warehouses. The latter, it is
believed, will afford sufficient accommodation for the winter months, and next
spring there are to  be additions and

meat from Mr. Wharton Judge Young
summed up the case briefly and very
sharply.
"After all," he said, "what is the use
of beating about the bush with it.
There is no evidence in my opinion, to
convict this man of theft. Why the
stuff is not worth stealing, and in any
case the woman admits having readily
trusted the man with the only article
worth anything in the whole bunch."
. To the accused Judge Young said
sternly: "See here, Plant, there is not
sufficient evidence to convict you of
having stolen these jewels and you ire
acquitted of this charge. But let me
tell you that you don't go out of this
court with any illuminated certificate of
character. I want to say this to you:
"This is the second time you have appeared before me. Don't let me see
you here again, that's all."
The judge ordered the jewels to be
handed to the woman whom he severely
censured. She will leave the city.
Frank Plant was detained on the second
charge against him of being a frequenter.

-Notice of Motion Comes Tonight.
ft question of the grading of Second
imhi in the outlying district while the
] coDjcsted part of Third avenue remains,
untouched is still troubling Aid.  Mc-
! Inytre.
"I had hoped that Aid. Lynch would
have been here tonight," he said, "as
ke takes a special interest in the matter
of the Local Improvement Bylaw, and
since he is not present I cannot speak
along the lines I had intended to. In
view of this money difficulty that has
arisen, and the matter of the holding
back of tenders for the rest of .Section
One, if it was correct in the face of this
situation that these tenders should not
be called for, then the present work
going on, on Second 'avenue is illegal.
Of course Second avenue could carry out
its own improvements, but in view of
the fact that the whole grading of
Section One is calculated to cost $400,000
of which $160,000 is appropriated to
Second avenue it is evident that the
people in other parts of Section One
are now contributing a share in the cost
of the work on Second avenue. This is
contrary to the Local Improvement
Bylaw which says that only "property
immediately benefited by or abutting
on" the improved portions shall bear a i
proportion of the cost as distinct from j
remote property. This being the case I
would suggest that the work on Second
avenue be stopped where not absolutely
necessary and carried on only where it
is likely to be of immediate usefulness
to the city, that is between McBride and
Eighth streets.
Aid. Mclntyre went on to point out
that there was a section of Third avenue

complicity in the plot.
O. M. Helgerson of Prince Rupert has
just turned another big real estate deal.
This time he is the buyer and it is Port
Mann property. Mr. Helgerson has
been looking for an active, market and
this week purchased a block of 118 acres
of what is known as the Paterson ranch.
This is adjoining Mackenzie and Mann's
townsite of Port Mann, just opposite
New Westminster.
The price has not yet been made
public but it is understood to be in the
neighborhood of $125,000. It is the
biggest deal in Port Mann property yet
made and real estate men in Vancouver
anticipate that Mr. Helgerson can clean
up at least $50,000 by the end of the
present year.
The property Mr. Helgerson purchased lies just beyond the block held
by the Prince Rupert syndicate.
large crowd of passengers. I cannot
take a pound more. Most of this eighty
tons is taken up with the office outfit
of the engineering corps, contracted for
some time ago.
"I cannot tell, and nobody else can
tell, whether I shall be able to make
another trip or not. I am hoping that
I will, but I am not going to enter anto
any contracts with regard to it. I may
be able to make two trips, though I
hardly think so."
Mr. McMaster said notices had been
sent out that no more freight for the
Skeena river would be accepted after
October first. In the past two years
navigation on the Skeena had closed on
November third of fourth, and in all
probability the same conditions would
prevail this season. Even under those
favorable circumstances there would be
about four hundred tons left in the
warehouses, because, although the steamers might be able to make a few more
trips, they could take only light loads.
EXTENDING THE WHARF

Two Prisoners From Hazelton
Provincial Chief Constable Wynn received notification by wire today that
two prisoners charged with theft are
coming down from Hazelton. The
prisoners' names were not stated. They
are proceeding to Westminster.
Back to the Post of Duty
Aid. Naden returned to his place at
the city council board last night and was
greeted with a storm of aldermanic
cheers and cries of "Speech! Speech!"
He smiled and returned the greetings of
his fellow aldermen, but did not contribute any oratory either then 6r during
the rest of the meeting, but enthusiastically reponded to the movement to
adjourn.
The big pile driver has been moved to
the edge of the water at the foot of
Centre street, and is to be engaged for
some time making an extension of the
wharf from that point north. From the
present position of the pile driver the
wharf is to run out at an angle to near
the Davis boathouse. The company has
only one hundred and fifty teet of dock
available at present in this part, and the
extension will increase this to three
hundred and twenty feet. So that
instead of one section of five hundred and
seventy feet, the company will have two
sections, the new one of three hundred
and twenty feet and the old one of about
four hundred.
The work will employ about fifteen
men for the next three or four months.
The dock is also to be repaired under the
present warehouses. The latter, it is
believed, will afford sufficient accommodation for the winter months, and next
spring there are to be additions and
changes.

DROPPED INTO
DEEP CREVASSE
THRILLING   EXPERIENCE   OF   A
NAAS STAMPEDER
Partners Made Rope of Blankets and
Managed to Haul Featherly to
Surface���Toted Injured Man for
Fourteen Mile*.
Stewart, Oct. 3.���In the mad rush
of prospectors following the first news
of the placer strike in the Naas river
country, Bill Featherly came near ending his existence by a slide down the
Bitter Creek glacier, terminating his
fall by wedging into a crevasse about
twenty feet deep and breaking his right
leg in two places.
Fortunately his partner, Johnson, was
with him. He unslung his pack, made
a rope of his blankets and tried to lower it down to the man on the ice, but
was unsuccessful. He stood on the
trail and shouted for aid which finally
came in the shape of several other
hurrying gold seekers. By dint of the
hardest kind of work and engineering,
picking footholds in the ice, Featherly
was got back to the surface once more.
Then began about as hard a "mushing" trip as this country has seen in
many a day. Two men started for
Stewart, a twenty-one mile hike, the
most of it over one of the worst ice
trails hereabouts. Arriving in camp
they spread the news and a party of
rescuers to pack the injured man to
the Stewart hospital was despatched at
once, carrying a light cot. In the meantime Featherly was made as comfortable as possible under the circumstances, but suffered gerat pain. All
thought of the placer strike was forgotten by the prospectors and they remained by Featherly's side until the
rescue party arrived.
Tht? trip with the injured man back
to Stewart was made with great difficulty. It was a straight pack of
fourteen miles over a regular goat trail
before the wagon road to Bitter Creek
was reached. Here the wagon awaited
the party and the rest of the trip was
made in fast time.
DREDGE FOR NARROWS
Sir Wilfrid's Visit Already Beginning
To Bear Fruit
That Sir Wilfrid Layrier's visit to
Vancouver was not without benefits,
observes the Vancouver Province, is
shown by the news from Ottawa received today that an order-in-council
had been passed awarding to the Si-
monds Shipbuilding company of Glasgow a contract for a deep-water dredge
to be used to improve the First Narrows.
The dredge is to cost $210,000. The
announcement will be hailed with satisfaction by those who have fought for
some government help for this port. *
For years the needs of Vancouver
were ignored but Sir Wilfrid was evidently impressed by the good work |of
the Vancouver boosters who attended
him while he was here. The dredging
of the north Bhore and removing the
Parthia shcal and the Burnaby shoal
would make navigation much safer and
lower the velocity of the tides.

the possibilities of the mining industry," said Mr. McConnell to the Pror-
in��e at the Hotel Vancouver today.
"With only two noteworthy exceptions most of the work done has been
of a superficial character. Owners
of claims have been mostly occupied
during the past season in cutting roads
and trails, prospecting the surface
and getting in supplies for this winter's
operations. This preliminary work in
a new region is inevitable.
"I visited various camps and saw
some very promising prospects. Conditions in the Salmon River district
farther inland are much tha same as
in the Portland Canal country. At
Salmon River I also saw a number of
good showings but no ore body has
yet been outlined or proven up. The
values are principally in gold, silver
and lead. I was also shown some fine
specimens of gold ore which according to report had been found this season across the divide in the Naas River
district.
"It was unfortunate that sensational
and untruthful reports about the discovery of rich free milling gold ores
on Bitter Creek were sent broadcast
last June. Such practices should be
severely condemned as they tend to
injure the real merits of the country.
As a matter of fact the existence of
free |milling ore on Bitter Creek has
not yet been established. It is true
that specimens of free |gold in samll
quantities were found in one or two
spots. And the same exaggeration applies to the so-called placers on Bitter Creek which has been staked from
end to end. If the gold is there nobody has yet tried to get it out," added
Mr. McConnell with a significant smile.

BRANCH LINE
TO VANCOUVER
PROBABLE    ROUTE   OF    GRAND
'     TRUNK PACIFIC
From Fort George Down the Fraser
River Valley and by Way of Harrison Lake to Agassiz���Via Bonaparte
too Expensive.
It has been learned, says the Victoria
Colonist, that the branch of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway which it is proposed to build from Fort George to this
city will run down through the Lillooet
district and strike the Canadian Pacific
Railway near Agassiz station. Owing
to the heavy rock work and the large
cost necessary in construction, the trial
lines run during the season from Lillooet
to the Fraser to Lytton, where the Fraser
River is joined by the Thompson, are
not considered satisfactory.
An engineering party in charge of W.
I. Bassett, who was formerly connected
with the V. V. and E. Railway, is now
working north from Agassiz via Harrison River, Harrison Lake and the Lillooet River. Its objective is Lillooet. It
is claimed that a route with very low
grades can be secured all the way from
Lillooet on the Fraser, to Agassiz,
whence the line will parallel the Canadian Pacific into Vancouver.
There is of course the alternative that
the line might be built in North Vancouver. This would involve the bridging of
the north arm of the Burrard Inlet or the
utilization of the bridge across the
second narrows.
The route from a point on the Lillooet
River, which empties into Harrison Lake
to Lillooet is described as an excellent
one, with very low grades. It trends
northeasterly via Duffey Lake and Cayuse River through a very fine mining
and agricultural district.
Mr. Bassett's party has been in the
field three weeks, and according to advices leceived here very satisfactory
progress is being made. Mr. Bassett has
had a great deal of experience in locating lines for the Great Northern system
in the United States. For several years
he served on the staff of Willaim Kennedy, chief engineer of the V. V. and E.
Ry., in locating the line through the
Boundary district. Last season he had
charge of a C. P. R. survey party in
seeking a route across the Hope mountains.
From Lillooet the branch line of the
G. T. P. is likely to extend along the
Fraser all the way to Fort George, most
of that portion of the route having been
run over this summer by two of its survey parties. It was originally intended
to seek a shorter route to Vancouver by
building south from Tete Jaune Cache.
This summer a Grand Trunk Pacific outfit "hooked up" with a previous survey
made between the Cache and the-junction of the Clearwater and North Thompson Rivers. The route from the last
mentioned point was via Bonaparte Lake,
Bonaparte River and thence across country to Clinton, a point on the Fraser
above Lillooet. The whole region was
found to be very rough and the building of the line involved serious and costly engineering problems. In view of
these circumstances the line will most
likely start at Fort George and run due
south to Lillooet, thence across to the
Lillooet River, Harrison Lake and striking the Fraser once more at Agassiz.

WHAT ARE THE PLANS?
The Mayor and some of the aldermen speak with courage and much faith that
the city will have no difficulty in soon getting credit funds to carry on the grading
contracts. This may be laudable, theoretically,, for the boys like to admire a
brave spirit���but is it good business? Undoubtedly the Mayor and Aldermen
realize that a credit accepted and cancelled by the Bank of Montreal will not be
touched by any other monetary institution in the country. A bold front in time
of adversity is half the battle but unless the council are basing their courage on
something besides the hope of talking over the Bank of Montreal then they are
deceiving themselves as well as the public.
In response to the request o the bank for a statement the council has sent a
communication explaining the city's financial position and the plans of the city
council. Should not the property holders, who are really the persons vitally interested, know the contents of that letter? The city council has already made one
failure of the financing, and the property owners who pay the shot were not taken
into their confidence. Before any more bungles are made the public should know
how the council plan to raise the money and what they propose doing with it
afterwards.
There may be times when certain civic business should be quietly negotiated
but the present situation is one which calls for publicity. There is nothing to be
gained by secrecy.
The Victoria Colonist is authority for the statement that as a result of the
visitgof the Queen's Own Rifles of Toronto, to England, a large number of English
aldermen are going to visit Canada. It is to be hoped they will extend their visit
to the aldermen of Prince Rupert, so that they may learn how to raise a million
on wind and forget there is a string to it.
The city council having shown their inability to handle the question of finances
why not turn it over to the Citizens' Committee. They used to have a pretty good
pull with the Provincial Government.
While Europe is busy pulling down thrones and wrecking cities Canada is
building new cities and making every man a king.

Hazelton Merchants Take a Gloomy
View of Congested Freight Situation���Contractors Also Alarmed
About Supplies. i
J. D. McDonald, and R. S. Sargent,
leading merchants of Hazelton and interior points, ca^e up on the Port Simpson yesterday to see what could be done
toward getting in their winter supplies.
Mr. Boyd, manager of the Hudson's Bay
post at Hazelton, is also here, and with
them and individual mining operators
and others Captain Jackman had a
warm time of it last evening. The
Grand Trunk Pacific company and the
Foley, Welch & Stewart people wree also
after the captain, offering inducements
for the carriage of a few tons.
Captain Jackman says this may be
the last trip of the Port Simpson this
season, though he does expect to make
one more after this. The river was very
low now, and he expected ice to be
running on this trip. There may, however, be a change in the weather which
would permit of two or three trips being
made after this.
Even then, and with the aid of the
railwaV and other boats, it is evident
that only a small part of the river
consignments which stack the warehouses
to the rafters can be moved this seasom.
The merchants mentioned are feeling
very gloomy over the situation, being
afraid there is not enough supplies in
the district to carry the people through
to sleighing time. Freighting with dogs
and horses from the end of the railway
steel is in their opinion likely to be brisk
all winter through. Much mining
material has been taken in recently but
the question for mining operators, as
well as the railway contractors, is now
one of supplies for the men.

The Most Important
aiaite for a mining company is a large and valuable territory���the
t successful companies and those that are the most profitable to the
"Jobholders are companies with such holdings, and especially is this
tra,p of those which have already reached the producing stage, for the
lorw holdings assure further development and increased production,
thereby adding to the assets of the conmany and to the value of the
shares.
Many Mining Properties, even excellent properties, are not suited to
���j,. nvpraire investor because of the long wait that is involved before the
Ie is put on a shipping basis. THE SILVER CUP MINES, LIMITED has developed tlieir enormous ore bodies to the extent that regular
shinments will be maintained���large quantities of rich ore are in sight.
There is no speculation-no deferred hope that some day they mav
strike ore.
Investors who take advantage of the present opportunity to acquire
an interest in this splendid property should share, not two or five years
from now, but within a very few months, in the large profits which this
property is capable of earning.
We are confident that all who investigate the merits of Silver Cup
Mines will quickly appreciate the value of an early decision in the
matter.
Full particulars of the company, its organization, properties and
development work will be furnished upon application by person or letter.

THIRD AVENUE
OR SECOND?
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
motion should be given in order. "It
ii a serious question for us to pass
opinion upon without notice and consideration," he said.
The Mayor again reiterated his assurance that the necessary funds would
very soon be forthcoming. He thought
that even if it were decided to call off
the work on S. H. Watson's contract on
Second avenue in favor of work being
started on Third avenue they might find
themselves where they.were before quite
soon and able to go ahead all over
Section One.
Aid. Hilditch expressed himself still
�� favor of the motion, and Aid. Mclntyre explained that his idea was that
If the delay over the financial trouble-
we long and the Second avenue contracts were illegal as at present, then by
stopping unnecessary work and taking
up work where it seemed very necessary
M Third avenue, they would in a measure
wolMe those Third avenue residents
Wo .right be inclined to kick.
Aid. Pattullo did not see where Aid.
Wmyre's idea of illegality in the
TOtai in progreaa came in at all. It was
��absolutely necessary that all avenues
���Jetton One be graded at the same
����� He thought that a little patience
ffl<hiS case was very much a virtue.

to hold Cple," need be for the city
i^PeeLlttnk of Montreal down to
��0*o    Tdin8the'oan,andto
and c<>mpel the bank to come
through. He did not think this at all
an advisable policy, as it might involve
the city in a law suit, but still he believed the position was in the city's
favor as stated.
Aid. Barrow rising said: "You have
here a resident on Third avenue who is
not going to kick until he is certain that
the money for improvements is really
not forthcoming." He thought it strange
that the uselessness of the work on the
particular portion of Second avenue in
question had not been discovered before.
Aid. Hilditch explained that the
position was altered by the bank's
attitude. If the whole of Section One
had been going on the work on Second
avenue was not so unnecessary. But
now there was a likelihood of their being
hung up for money for ninety days and
this council might be our of office before
the money was in hand. He supported
Aid. Mclntyre because of this.
Aid Mobley doubted whether the
contract on Second avenue could be
legally transferred. The bank had said
that they would furnish funds to carry
on contracts already under way. But if
they endeavored to stop an existing
contract in favor of a new one the bank
might cut off the money for that contract.
Aid. Mobley thought the present discussion a fair sample of what they would
get if the work were being done by
General Fund. Everybody would be
thinking the next man was|getting more
favored. Of course the bank might be
willing to arrange for the changing of
the contract. He thought the city was
quite within the bounds of legality in
their present contracts under way, and
would be so for six months to come.
Aid. Barrow requested the Mayor to
ask Aid. Mclntyre whether he thought
they were illegal in starting .Second
avenue before Third in the first instance.
Aid. Mclntyre replied to the effect
that he did not think so. He had
acquiesced with the others in making
aSection One a single Local Improvement
area, though with others he felt now
that it was rather a large area. This
motion was simply the outcome of the
present financial situation. He hoped
he had not given any impression that he
thought all the avenues in Section One
should be graded at the same time. Still
he maintained that the fact that differences wree reported to exist between
the G. T. P. and the council showed that
some little difference really did exist,
and agreed with Aid. Hilditch that it
might not be in the life time of this
council that the funds for improvement
were finally made certain of.
The Mayor then formally asked Aid.
Mclntyre to give notice of motion which
he did, and the matter will come up
again at tonight's council meeting.

Brandt block. They are now occupying
the large front store as a warehouse,
offices, show room, and the rear has been
divided into two commodious bond
rooms, customs and inland revenue.
The warehouse has had many improvements made to it which will greatly
facilitate business. One corner has been
partitioned off for a wine room. Messrs.
Clarke Bros, also intend to take over the
Board of Trade rooms. This will give
them the entire ground floor of that big
block except the corner used by the
proprietors.
Messrs. Clarke Bros, are two young
men widely and favorably known in the
city and district. They have business
ability that would be creditable to older
heads. In entering the wholesale liqour
business they have been careful to select
a line of wines and liqueurs that will
command a very large patronage and
the lines they have secured and are
carrying in stock will recommend themselves to the most particular.

DISCOVERY OF
FLUXING IRON
IMPORTANT TO MINING OPERA-
TIONS ON SKEENA
Prospector Stanwood Has Located
Seven Claims of Bog Iron Identical
in Character with that Being Shipped From China for Fluxing.
B F. Stanwood, ("Doc") is in town
and is highly enthusiastic over the
new discovery he has recently made. Mr.
Stanwood is a copper prospector and is
known to have some of the best copper
prospects on the Copper river. Smelter
people have recently begun to make
enquiries along the Skeena, and what a
smelter will be particularly in need of is
fluxing material. To discover this Mr.
Stanwood has been raking the adjacent
country "with a fine-toothed comb," and
his long search has at length been
rewarded with success.
The discovery is of bog iron, which
upon assaying shows absolutely no
phosphorus, and fulfills all the other
requirements of a good fluxer. It is
said to be the same identical ore that
is now being shipped from China to the
Pacific coast for fluxing purposes.
Mr. Stanwood has staked seven claims
on this large deposit of iron, but is
loath to publish its exact locality until
the locations are completed for fear of
starting a stampede. He says it is found
on tidewater and therefore easy of shipment, and in close proximity to the best
mineralized district of the Skeena. The
ore, he says, lies in such shape that it
can be handily quarried and as soon as
he can make the necessary arrangements
he hopes to start shipping it to the Coast
smelters, where there is little doubt
that it will find a good market.
S. A. SERVICES IN HOSPITAL
And Also in Jail.   Progress With Citadel. - S. A. Councils Coming
Ensign Johnstone of the Salvation
Army has now arranged to hold services
every Thursday afternoon and every
Sunday morning at the G. T. P. hospital.
He is also arranging to hold services
regularly in the jail with the permission
ef the authorities in charge.
Progress with the new S. A. citadel
continues rapid. The piles have been
driven, and the sidewalk laid, and the
building will shortly take shape. The
living quarters for the staff will be
finished first. They are expected to be
ready by the middle of November, and
the hall will be completed by the first
of December.
Ensign Johnstone and Captain Ken-
are going to Vancouver to attend the
Salvation Army councils at the end of
this month. When the citadel is complete
there will be an important opening ceremony at which several S. A. notables
from the South will be present.
An Elocutionary Test
City Clerk Woods had plenty of lung,
throat and voice exercises at the opening
of last night's city council meeting as
the minutes of no fewer than three previous council meetings fell to be read.
The three sets of minutes were approved
and adopted without amendment.
Cost of Two Fatalities
A copy of the verdict returned by the
jury at the injuest on Charles Daley who
was killed by falling from a plankway
near Eighth street was submitted to the
city council last night by Coroner McMullin, also a note of medical and other
expenses in connection with the recent
fatalities amounting to twenty-five dollars payable to Dr. Tremayne who attended these cases and gave evidence
upon them.
Liquor Dealers Association
The ^wholesale liqour dealers of the
city met Tuesday evening and formed an
association for mutual interests, -Among
the decisions made was an agreement to
close all wholesale houses at 7 p.m. The
officers are H. H. Clarke, President and
D. Sutherland, Secretary.
To The
Investor
DO YOU REALIZE that when shares
in the HAZELTON NINE MILE MINING COMPANY are offered you at 15c
per share that you have an opportunity
of becoming a stockholder in the BEST
mining proposition in British Columbia,
at about ONE SEVENTH OF THE PAR
VALUE of the stock ? Capitalized at
one million shares, par $1.00 each, with
an offering of treasury stock at 16c
per share, places a total valuation on
this producing mine at present of only
$150,000. IS THIS A FAIR VALUATION for a property consisting of seven full ADJOINING claims and SHIPPING ORE from the surface rolling up
tonnage RIGHT NOW? Ask questions, make comparisons and THINK
IT OVER FROM A BUSINESS STANDPOINT. There are a few thousand of
this allotment of 50,000 shares  at  15c.

Vancouver, Oct. 3.���Counsel lor the
Ikeda Mines, Limited, made application
before Mr. Justice Clement in chambers
this morning to set aside a garnishment
order for $19,250 given in the case
of Beveridge versus the Awaya Ikeda
Company.  Judgment was reserved.
Mr. W. M. Griffin, who appeared
for the defendant company, said that
an agreement had been entered into
to sell mines on Moresby Island to
Mr. S. J. Castleman for $200,000, and
that plaintiff in this case, who was engineering the deal, was to be paid a
commission of ten per cent. Counsel
claimed that this agreement provided
tha commission was to be paid only
as payments were made on the property. In pursuance of this, when the
first and only payment of $8000 was
made, Mr. Beveridge received $800.
On date of August 31, 1910, a new
agreement was made, the terms of
the former one not having been adhered to. Under the new instrument
a new company was formed to take
over the property at the original price
of $200,000. The former payment of
$8000 was credited, $30,000 was paid
in notes, and the balance in shares.
Mr. Griffin contended that under
the terms of the commission agreement with Mr. Beveridge commission
was to be paid only as payment on
the property was made. He said that
defendant had no claim for the total
amount claimed, $19,250, but that it
was a debatable point whether or not
he were entitled to commission on
the $30,000 notes. He was willing to
allow the court to retain $3000 to
cover this amount until the merits of
the case had been heard, but he thought
it unreasonable that the entire amount
in question should be tied up, representing as it did practically the entire
amount the company had in the bank.
He said that his clients were hampered
in their business by the garnishment
order.
Mr. F. G. T. Lucas, representing the
plaintiff, opposed the application, stating
that it was not proper to go into the
meirts of the case before the action came
to trial. The agreement had been
changed without consulting the plaintiff.
He was willing to help hurry the case
along to trial in order to relieve defendant company, but he could not
see why the present application should
be granted.

The act that the payment of dog
taxes in the city has been due for some
time and that many people have not yet
paid for the privilege of owning a bow
wow was mentioned in council last
night. The city clerk is to advertise in
the local press that this tax and some
other taxes are now due.
Aid. Hilditch suggested that the
sanitary inspector be supplied with a
tax receipt book so that he might
facilitate for the citizens the payment of
their dog taxes, by collecting the tax
from citizens when on his usual rounds.
This would not in any way invalidate
the fact that citizens are really expected
to pay their taxes at the City Hall.
But the dog tax was a little matter
likely to be overlooked, and not usually
considered worth a special journey to
the City Hall. The inspector could
save the citizens trouble by carrying a
receipt; book^wjthouL .adding to Jiiav
labors materially. The suggestion will
be put in force.

BABY BORN ON
PRINCEfRUPERT
EVENT HAPPENED ON LAST TRIP
TO SOUTH
Captain! McLeod Had Pleasure of
Cabling There i Had Been an Addition to Clan Instead of Death .in
McLeod Family.
Captain McLeod, master of the
British ship Dunblane, now laying at
San Francisco, has observed the traditions of the greatest maritime nation
the world has seen and is now the happy
father of a fine baby boy which was born
at sea, says the Vancouver Province. The
event took place at 4 o'clock this morning
on board the Grand Trunk Pacific
steamer Prince Rupert and the youngster's name will perpetuate the memory
of Captain Barney Johnson, master of
the G. T. P. vessel. The Dunblane is
at San Francisco, having arrived there
recently, and Captain and Mrs. McLeod
took the opportunity of visiting Northern
British Columbia. The addition to the
McLeod family arrived on the scene
early this morning and the Prince
Rupert was opened out, all the engine-
room staff helping to shove the steamer
along at top speed while a wireless message was sent to Vancouver ordering
medical aid to meet the steamer.
f When the l'rince Rupert came in
this morning Dr. Wells was waiting
and the mother and child were hurried to the hospital where they are
doing well. Captain McLeod is proud
of the fact that his son was born at
sea and the Prince Rupert passengers
took up a collection in order to buy
a present for the baby.
While Captain McLeod was at Stewart
a man of the same name died as the
result of a blasting accident and one of
the skipper's friends at Prince Rupert,
jumping to conclusions, wired Captain
McLeod's relatives in New Zealand that
he was dead. Captain McLeod heard
of this and was able to cable that instead
of being dead, there was an addition
to the Clan McLeod.

While Aid. Hilditch was speaking on
the subject of the Ninth avenue water
supply last night Ensign Johnstone and
Capt. Kerr of the Salvation Army corps
in the city entered the City Hall to
approach the Mayor on a matter of
urgency.
It seems that the brother of Joe McGrath had fallen heavily from the
piling at Port Essington that morning,
and had broken his jaw���a painful and
distressing injury.
He was lying on the steamer Port
Simpson, and a permit was required
to admit him to the hospital.
Ensign Johnstone thought the Mayor
could write the necessary permit but
the Mayor said this was in the hands of
Mr. McMullin. Mayor Stork rang up
Mr. McMullin at once and arranged for
the permit to be got ready for Ensign
Johnstone who went up to the Government residence with it.

there would be no doubt that the people
would have * the water put onto their
houses. He wanted to ask the Water
Committee if they were prepared to put
water on any streets where the residents
desired it to be put, of course, in the
cheapest manner possible.
Aid. Mobley in reply said that the
committee had taken the matter up
in a small way so far. They were really
dependant on the experience and knowledge of the city engineer in this case.
