Graham Island Will Soon Witness
Active Development Work���Naden
Harbor Coal Lands to be Opened
By    Western    Steel    Corporation.
Victoria, July 19.���Extensive mining
operations on Graham island can be expected shortly if the plans of several
syndicates holding coal lands there are
carried out. The island is rich in both
lignite and bituminous, and for a long
time past expert prospectors have been
staking claims, many of which will
shortly be developed.
John G. Johnson recently returned
from Prince Rupert after paying licenses on three immense areas of coal
land, totalling 43,520 aeres, which have
been staked for a syndicate of well-
known capitalists, most of whom belong to Vancouver. The properties are
on the north end of Graham island, the
largest area being two miles inland
from Dixon entrance, south of Sandstone point, near which place a twelve-
foot seam of coal is reported to show
on. the shoreline at low water. The remaining claims are grouped near Mas-
set inlet and Naden harbor.
Steps have already been taken to
form an operating company to develop the properties, which are said to
be very rich, the coal being "in place"
instead of broken as oa Moresby island.
In addition to the development of these
lands it is understood that the
Steel Corporation will immediately
open up the 25,800 aeres which it purchased from a Victoria syndicate headed
by W. and J. Wilson some time ago.
The latter property is located a few
miles away from Naden harbor on Parry

Causes of fire, electric light plants,
the lack of energy on the part of the
council, alderman's "full steam ahead,"
inspecting water falls, and a few other
minor things of like nature got mixed
up in the discussion of the city fathers
last night. It was started by the mayor
inviting all the members of the council
to go on a trip on Saturday to inspect
a couple of water powers. Aid. Hilditch
said it was time some move was being
made. Aid. Pattullo stood on his dignity
and called Aid. Hilditch down. One
thing led to another until the mayor
said he would move to have all gasoline
lamps in the city done away with.
The debate of the aldermen is given
below in part.
The mayor informed the aldermen
that he and the engineer had a discussion in the morning and decided to make
an inspection tour to Ecstall Falls and
Wolfe creek to look for a water power.
A boat will be secured on Saturday
morning and the whole council will go
out. They will go to the Ocstal Falls
first as it is the longer trip. The trip
will take all day.
The object of the trip is to secure
a water power for the purpose of generating energy for the electric light plant.
Aid. MclntyTe and Aid. Hilditch
spoke greatly in favor of this move and
stated that all the citizens would be
glad to hear of the move and to know
that something was being done.
Aid. Pattullo said that if any member
of the council could suggest a faster
way of doing business than the council
is proceeding they should make it
known.
Aid. Mclntyre said that in the matters
of electric light and fire protection there
has been a great deal of talk already and
it was time now for action. The talk
should be dropped for a time.
Aid. Lynch and Aid. Naden said that
just because there has been a couple
of little fires there was no reason why
the council should be rushed off its feet
and forced to do all kinds of fool things.

Ottawa, July 20.���Owing to the great
pressure brought to bear on the immigration department, especially by
railways and other large employers of
labor, the department has decided to
allow entry to all railway laborers irrespective of money qualifications or
that they shall have come direct from
their native country. This applies to
laborers from all countries except
Asiatic countries.
This news will be read with great interest by Foley, Welch & Stewart, the
contractors at this end of the Grand
Trunk Paciic, who have never been able
to get sufficient laborers because of the
new immigration regulations, although
offering the highest wages. Probably
thousands of men seeking work on the
road were turned down by the immigration inspectors at the various ports south.
This decision on, the part of the department will enable the contractors to
obtain more men and to push the work
forward more speedily.

FIRST  STEPS TAKEN  BY  CANADIAN COMMISSIONER
Would Have Supervisory Authority
Over Railways of United States
And Canada and Take Joint Action
As to Terminals and Rates.
Washington, July 20.���An inter-
1 national railroad commission with supervisory authority over the railways
of the United States and Canada probably will be the result of an action
taken by this government in the appointment of Chairman Martin A.
Knapp, of the interstate commerce
commission, as the representative of
the United States to confer with Hon.
W. J. Mabee, chief of the railway commission of Canada.
More than a year ago the subject was
broached in a letter from Mr. Mabee to
Judge Knapp. It was pointed out lhat
the increasing traffic between the
United Stales arul Camilla would render
full control over rates in the future
more difficult until joint action was
taken. It was realized that the acquisition of Canadian terminals by American roads and of American roads and
terminals by Canadian railways presented ever-increasing difficulties, It
is not possible to compel railway or
express companies to establish joint
and through rates to and from points
in the two countries.
While no arrangements have been
perfected for the conference, it is likely
Chairman Knapp and Mr. Mabee will
meet in Ottawa in August. It is not
improbable a subsequent conference
may be held in Washington.

WHAT STAMPEDED PEOPLE OF LONDON
Bitter Creek " Mountain of Gold " Yarn a Sensational Melange
Faked Up By a New York Correspondent.
Vancouver, July 16.���"What about
Bitter Creek? Are you dead or sleeping?"
News editors, when they get really
angry express themselves in most sarcastic language and don't in the least
mind the expense of cabling it to correspondents who have allowed their
papers to be "scooped."
The above is a sample of the kind
of thing with which the Vancouver
representatives of Sunday New York,
London and Australian dailies were
bombarded about a fortnight ago.
For.some papers had got a big "story"
about a mountain of gold being discovered at Bitter Creek, and some had
not. It was those that had not which
cabled.
London asked if the tremendous
stampede taking place from Vancouver
was justified by the extent and richness of the find. Also pictures of the
rush by mail.
New York demanded the cold facts
about Stewart.
Australia wanted to know why news
of a gold discovery in British Columbia
had to be received from London instead of Vancouver.
The correspondents were puzzled at
first as to what on earth the fuss was
about. When they found out the heat
of their retonts burnt out the insulation..
London papers to hand today fully
explain the matter. It is evident that
some New York correspondent got hold
of the story of free milling gold said
to have been found at Bitter Creek
and the placer finds at Iditarod, mixed
them well together, warmed them up
thoroughly and served hot to news
editors who didn't know a quartz proposition from bench diggings.
And this is what it looked like when
it appeared in the London Daily Express:
"Thousands of prospectors are hurrying to Stewart, British Columbia,
where a gold reef of almost incalculable richness has been discovered. It
has been explored for twenty miles,
and, according to the discoverers, it
will prove one of the greatest gold
finds in the world. Sensational gold
discoveries are also reported from
Alaska, many miles north of Stewart.
Ten thousand miners have arrived in
the Iditarod river territory and 5000
more are on the way from the United
States. There were many inquiries regarding the finds at Stewart at the
offices of the agent-general for British
Columbia yesterday by men who were
anxious to seek their fortunes in this
new field.
"A rush from London to the new El
Dorado has already started. The offices of the agent-general for British
Columbia were crowded yesterday with
applicants anxious to set out for the
romantic gold field, although there
is as yet no official confirmation of the
news. Young men of all classes clamored for information at the counter.
They wanted to know how they could
get to Stewart quickly.
"The journey from London to the
new gold fields takes the best part of
a month, even given good luck and a
stout pair of legs. First, there is the
voyage from Liverpool to Montreal,
then five days' journey across Canada to Vancouver, where a steamer
can, with luck, be caugh^ to Port Simpson. If not, there is a three days'
wait. A journey of a hundred miles
over somewhat rocky country, must
be taken before the romantic city of
Stewart, on Bitter Creek, is reached,
after leaving Port Simpson.
"The rise of Stewart is as romantic
as anything in the history of mushroom townships. Two years ago it
was a stony tract at the foot of the
Rockies. A prospector named Piggott.
with three or four companions, camped
there one night and found there were
valuable minerals in the mountain
range close by. They staked out claims,
and found copper, silver and traces of
gold in the quartz, and quickly made
fortunes there. The news spread, and
last summer a colony of 200 miners
were working on the claims. Then came
the news that the whole district was rich
in precious metal���not only a mountain,
but a range of gold���and now there are
5000 people living in tents in Stewart,
and the number is increasing by hundreds daily. The Mackenzie & Mann
railroad, which runs in connection with
the C. P. R., have already invested
600,000 pounds sterling in Stewart,
and a railroad track is to be constructed
to link it up with Port Simpson."

OUR FIRE PROTECTION.
Some of the insurance agents in the city are in receipt of a communication from
N. B. Whitley, an insurance adjustor who recently made a .eport on the fire insurance risks in Prince Rupert.' The communication urges three essentials in the
city by-laws to improve local conditions. They are: Concise and stringent regulations effecting the use and storage of gasoline; prohibition of the use of stove
pipes through walls and roofs; the collection of rubbish on the streets and in and
under buildings.
Of these three undoubtedly the most dangerous is that of gasoline, and it is
probably the hardest of the three to control at this stage of the city's existence.
Prince Rupert is what may be called a gasoline city. It is used for fuel, light and
power, in lieu of something better. As one of the largest users of gasoline in the city
the Optimist lealizes how impossible it is to do without it yet how hazardous its
presence is. Regulations regarding it must be carefully prepared and rigidly observed. All conditions must be considered. Until electric power and light and gas
is supplied gasoline will be present and the surest way to get rid of its danger is
to supply the safer form of power and fuel.
The regulation of stovepipes rubbish etc is more easily dwelt with and amply
provided for in the building by-law to be passed by the council.
Mr. Whitley's letter also draws attention to the error most sites make in
putting in water mains which soon prove too small. With Prince Rupert's future
assured and a highly qualified engineer in charge this error is not likely to be made
here.
LOOKING FOR
WATER POWER
CONTINUED PROM PAGE 1
Time was to be taken and things done
right.
Temporary Light Plant
Aid. Mclntyre said that a temporary
electric light plant could be put in at
a cost not exceeding $5000 and this
would do away with gasoline lamps and
do much to prevent fires. This should
not be delayed for a moment as gasoline
lamps are a menance and should not be
allowed.
The mayor said he did not like to
hear any alderman make such statements
as "If the council is in earnest." Every
member is dead in earnest. So far as the
electric light plant was concerned he
had his own ideas as to the delay in the
matter. He did not wish to express any
undue criticism but it was unfortunate.
He regretted that so much time was
spent on a scheme which the council
found out would be useless.
Aid. Hilditch said he was not criticising the Light Committee, but all
put off for 30 days for the purpose of
allowing some one to place a communication before the council. The communication is not forthcoming and now
it is up to the council to get busy and
wait for nothing.
There  Was   No  Delay
Aid. Mobley explained the cause of
the delay and pointed out why nothing
could   really   have   been   accomplished
He thought no time had been lost.
No Gasoline Lamp*
The mayor said that if it was within
the power of the council to prohibit
the use of gasoline plants he would be
glad to head the movement. He would
throw out his own plant which cost
him $100. He believed that they were
a source of great danger.
Aid. Naden said that if the council
considered them dangerous to the community the council had the power to
shut them off at once. He personally
was afraid of them.
Aid. Lynch did not think that there
was much difference between the danger
of gasoline and coal oil.
The mayor said he would at this
meeting move to have a clause inserted
in the building by-law absolutely prohibiting the use of gasoline lamps in
the business part of the city.      .
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the city
engineer be asked to give his opinion
as to what could be done about an
electric light plant.

PRINCE RUPERT NUMBER
Many Local Scenes Depicted in this
Month's  "Opportunities."
"Opportunities", the monthly real
estate review of Vancouver, makes
its July issue a Prince Rupert number.
Its cover frontispiece is an excellent
view of the waterfront, and it gives half
a score other illustrations including a
portrait of Mayor Stork, steam shovels
at work on the waterfront, big salmon
haul, steamer Prince Rupert entering
the harbor, rockmen on railway, Prince
Rupert fish market, Port Simpson
entering Skeena canyon and party of
surveyors platting townsite. There is
an article by Weston Coyney entitled
"Prince Rupert's Ground Floor," and
a number of write-ups of Prince Rupert's
business men.
Sent Linen to Laundry
H. Williams, proprietor of the Talbot
House said last evening that the report
which stated all the bedding off the
beds not occupied had been taken into
storage was incorrect. Mr. Williams
says he sent the linen from 14 beds
which had been given up by transient
to the laundry. He had sent some trunki
and grips left there by late guests to the
Lindsay storage as he had no room for
them. He said he had no idea how the
paper and oil got in the attic.
Knights of Pythias Hall
The Knights of Pythias Hall in the
Helgerson Block has been completed
and is now ready for the lodges. Geo.
D. Tite is placing the furniture in
position today. The Knights of Pythias
will hold their first meeting in the new

Furnished Rooms May Be
Rented Profitably.
Just to have "furnished rooms
to rent" is no great feat���or novelty. The number of people whose
homes are in furnished rooms���
"homes within homes"���is very
large.
And among the people who live
in "one room homes are an increasing number who like to have
things a little better THAN USUAL.
They like to have a pleasant
room, and they like to have it
fitted up DISTINCTIVELY, with
taste.
They will cheerfully, eagerly,

in the way of a furnished room.
Fix yours up to please the particular tenants, and ADVERTISE
ACCORDINGLY, and you'll get

Stewart, the mining camp at the head
of Portland Canal, continues to excite
a great amount of attention in Great
Britain. The Daily Mirror says:
"One of the first fortunes to be made
out of the new mining town of Stewart
in British Columbia, has been made
by a lady at present in London. She is
Miss Agnes Deans Cameron, the
lady sent by the Government of
Canada to give a series of lectures
throughout Great Britain and Ireland on the resources of the great
Dominion. "It was about four years
ago," Miss Cameron told The Daily
Mirror, "that Mr Robert M. Stewart,
a Scotsman who had been prospecting
about the north of the Portland Canal
was struck by the great advantages
cf forming a township at the head of
the canal. He selected the site for
the town on the banks of the Bear
River, with splendid wharf facilities
and came down to Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, with the view
of interesting people in his scheme.
Hardly anybody showed any enthusiasm, and only about half a dozen
people, of whom, I am glad to say I
was one, decided to join him in his
venture. The town of Stewart was
then laid out".

TEMPORARY   SYSTEM
Of Water Works May Be  Installed
From Harbor for Fire  Protection.
Chief Engineer Davis was asked this
morning his opinion on the idea of installing a temporary water system for
fire protection, taking the water from the
harbor. He replied that the idea was
feasible and would probably be a good
one. It is a matter of cost only and he
is looking into that now. The shoitage
of fresh water from the mountains and
the continued dry weather does not look
any too favorable for a thickly populated district like section one.
The salt water may be turned into
the new six inch pipe line which will be
installed as soon as the pipe arrives.
The system will only be temporary as
there will be an abundant supply of
water as soon as the big pipes are laid
from Woodworth lake, the permanent
source of supply.
MARINE
The steamers are all bunched up
again. It is always a busy week end on
the waterfront and this week will be no

rule. On Friday there are no less than
four steam boats due���Cottage City,

On Saturday we are to have the Princess
May and Princess Beatrice going and

new Grand Trunk Pacific steamer
Prince George is due, and she carries
mail. The Prince Albert will be here to
meet her. The Camosun leaves the same
day for Vancouver. On Monday there
will be the Princess Royal and Prince
George. The business on the waterfront
is growing fast.
