IAY0R GAYNOR ASSASSINATED
Vet of Politician Discharged
From His Job
ilayor Gaynor Now In Dying State���
Waa About to Embark To Europe
For His Vacation���His Assailant
Overpowered   and      Incarcerated.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, August 9.���Mayor Gaynor
lies near death.   Shot down by the hand
Jf an assassin.    The popular executive
the great city was about to board the
Caiser Wilhelm  to take  his vacation
, Europe and was chatting on the wharf
rith two members of his  official staff
Suddenly he was shot in the head from
ehind and fell flat on his face.
There was a great crowd on the wharf
the time, and among these the assai-
Bnt of the mayor dodged and worked
3 way' toward   the   entrance.     Just
he was making a dash for the street
i was collared.     He made a fierce
resistance but was overpowered. The
police at once hurried him to the Tombs
prison for fear the mob should endeavor
to wreck vengeance upon him.
Meantime the mayor had been carried
to his automobile and was driven to
St. Mary's hospital. At noon today there
were small hopes entertained that he
would recover. He has been in an unconscious state since the distardly deed
was done.
The would-be assassin turns out to be
James Gallagher, a well known East
side politician. He claimed to have
voted for the mayor and was given a job
in the dock department. From this he
was discharged a few days ago, and this
is believed to be the animus of his act.
He has declined to make any statement
In a bulletin just issued the doctors
attending the mayor report that the
chances for his recovery are very slight.
The crime has produced a most profound impression. The shooting of
President Garfield by Guiteau is being
recalled  by  the newspapers.
j sary preparations for the arrival of the
j wrecking steamer Santa Cruz on the
scene. Captain Troup said that from all
! reports it was believed the May could be
j raised and that at any rate a good part
I of the vessel could be saved.

Romance of Gold."
��W Cy is a well known prospector
and pioneer, says Mr. Young, and strolled

UNREQUITTED LOVE THE CAUSE
Brilliant Student of Harvard
Shoots  Himself
Volume of Byron By His Side��� Young
Woman Who Rejected Him Holds
His Hand While He Passes Through
The Shadow.
(Special to the Optimist)
Boston, August 9.���Amelel Bradford,
one of the most brilliant of the many
brilliant students of Harvard, was found
to be dying in his room this morning.
The sound of a revolver shot called the
attention of other students in the same
building.     They found his room   door
locked. On bursting it open Bradford
was found in a pool of blood. He was at
full length on the bed, a revolver in the
nerveless fingers of his right and at his
left a volume of Byron's poems. It was
gathered that he had committed the
ghastly deed becasue of unrequited love.
Medical assistance was secured and in
a hurry the young lady who was said
to have rejected him was brought to the
room. She was excessively repentant,
and was at the lover's bedside, holding
his hand and promising to marry him,
until he gradually passed away from
loss of blood.
Bradford was the grandson of a multimillionaire and a descendant of the
Pilgrim Fathers. His family move in the
highest ranks of American society.

Clerk, acting under orders from
the Mayor, refused to produce
<��  this public document.

WRECKING   CREW
Captain   Troup  Takes   a   Wrecking
Force North ,to Raise the May
Captain J. W. Troup, manager of the
Canadian Pacific steamers passed through
on the Princess Royal last night for
Sentinel Island to inspect the wrecked
Princess May. He had a wrecking crew
with him with which to make the nec-s-
open the bottom under the forehold
and engine-room. These compartments
filled and if the steamship had slid
off the reef she would have foundered
in deep water with terrible consequences
The conduct of thc officers and
crew is reported to have been admirable
The shock of striking the rock drove
the passengers on the deck in their
sleeping garments. Captain McLeod
and those under him quickly allayed the
fears of the trembling people. Although
the electric lights went out a few moments after the ship struck, there was
no difficulty in loading the boats and
landing the passengers.
The wireless operator in his little
house on the hurricane deck did his
best to live up to the heroic traditions of his profession. He threw out
into the darkness a general alarm
that was heard on land and sea in a
radius of hundreds of miles, but no
answer came, and the flooding of the
engine room soon stopped the dynamos.
At the time of the accident Captain
McLeod was in his berth and Pilot
Richardson was on the bridge. The
approach to Sentinel Rock at the
southern end of Lynn Canal is one
of the most perilous stretches of water
in Alaska. A ship must clear the rocky
islands on both sides, the smallest
variation from the course entailing
disaster.
The walls of the canal are precipitous and the waterway deep and  in
The number of people who knew that
an election was going on yesterday
in Prince Rujiert, is officially stated over
the signature of the city clerk to have
bean one hundred and seventy nine. The
returns of the returning officer show that
one hundred and seventy voted that the
city should pay $40,000 for the telephone
plant, and nine voted against such payment by the city.
A three fifths majority of the votes
cast was sufficient to carry the by-law. |
There was no organized effort to tlefeat i
the by-law and none to get   out   the
votes.
The city solicitor has an agreement
ready to execute with the Telephone
Company and the plant will be taken over
immediately. The bank will advance
the funds on the debentures.
There are 70 shareholders in thc company, none of whom have more than
$500 invested in the stock. The city will
take the stock over at cost and the
citizens who put up the money some
months ago to protect the franchise will
not even get interest on their money
FOR CANADIAN NAVY
First   Presentation   of   Plate   To
Dominion   War   Vessel
CONTINUED ON PAGE 8
Victoria, August 4.���-Cabled directions have been given to Mr. J. H. Turner, the agent-general in London of the
province of British Columbia, to subscribe a sum of 100 pounds sterling to the
purchase of a suitable piece of plate for
presentation to H. M. S. Rainbow, the
first of the new Canadian cruisers. The
Rainbow is shortly to leave the homeland
for Esquimalt, and the graceful courtesy
of the provincial government will no
doubt be almost as much appreciated
by the premier and the government of
Canada as by the officers of thc pioneer
cruiser in Pacific waters of the new
Dominion navy,
I Special to the Optimist)
San Sebastian, August 9���Reserves
are being sent here under General Weyler,
in preparation for an emergency. Thousands of visitors poured into the city
despite the orders of the government to
the contrary. The clericals are defiant
and declare they will hold a monster
demonstration.
The greatest event of Sunday was a
well attended and peaceful bullfight,
the people apparently waiting for a new
phase in the political situation likely to
compromise both the I'ope and King
Alfonso.
The first great seizure of arms and ammunition intended for the revolutionists,
was made at Rilbna this morning, on a
steamship believed to be under charter
to the Carlists. A sharp lookout along
the Coast is preventing the smuggling
in  of arms.
DR. ROLLER WINS EASY
Famous    Esculapian    Puts    Down
Hindoo Game In Short Order
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 9. Dr. Roller, the
favorite wrestler of Frank Gotch, was
an easy victor over the Hindoo Gama
at the Alhambra last night. The immense theatre was crotiwed and the
"gate" was a large sum. The doctor made
record time in handling the Hindoo. He
won two straight {alls, the longest being
only a minute and a half. The match
was for a purse of two hundred pounds.
Alfonso Shows Hie Nerve
Cowes, Isle of Wight, August 9.���
(Special)���Undaunted by the falling

again on the Shamrock during the races
yesterday.
SILVER CUP LOOKS GOOD
Have Now Working Tunnel In Two
Hundred and Seventy Five Feet.
J. D. Campbell, mining engineer and
manager of the Silver Cup mines, is in
town (or a few days. He says the property is looking remarkably well, and
that the tunnel is now in two hundred
and seventy five feet which gives the
workings a verticle depth of thirteen
hundred feet. The ore they are in at
present will average $100 to the ton,
and the company will probably ship
one hundred and fifty tons of it this fall. THE    PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

LACK OF PUBLICITY
The result of the telephone by-law election yesterday showed two prominent
features���that the public are overwhelmingly in favor of municipal ownership
of telephones but that the great mass of the people did not know an election was
taking place. Those who did know of the election did not know where to vote or
what qualifications were necessary.
It is a straight tip to the city council that they have overlooked their chief
obligation, their first duty to the city: the giving of publicity to all civic affairs.
The mayor and aldermen may not know it but they have been quietly but severely
criticized by the public for their indifference and negligence in not promoting some
kind of a campaign in favor of the passing of the by-law. Less than three months
ago there were over 1000 votes cast at the municipal election and the same aldermen,
(all pledged to support the telephone by-law) were out hustling for every vote.
Yesterday there was no such anxiety. The vote was less than 200. The council is
directly responsible. They took no part in the election and even refused to advertise
in the daily papers. The result is that business men of good judgment and fair
minds have intimated their suspicion that the council were privately interested in
having the by-law defeated. The Optimist does not take that view of the situation.
The aldermen are men who have in the past transacted their own business free from
public inspection and now that public business has been thrust upon them they do
not seem to realize that they must take the public into their confidence on every
question. They may be temporary masters of the situation but the tax-payer
is after all the man behind and he must know what is being done. If the councillors
are unjustly suspected or criticized it is because they have neglected the publicity
department.
The city council has not yet accepted the Optimist's offer to publish a few items
of public interest free of charge.
After all it may be only a peculiar coincidence that there  are nine  votes
in the council and nine votes against the by-law.
If the rateyayers have any curiosity about the city accounts they will have
to suppress it.   The council refuses to divulge the information.
Among the big things we will be able to show Premier Laurier is the city hall
salary list, the fire bell and Aid. Lynch's theories on frontage tax.
The debate over which avenue the local improvements should begin on is the
nearest the city council has come to starting something. It would please the merchants very much if the boys were to start digging in on both avenues.

Letters to the Editor
Re Coal Scales
To the Editor Optimist,���With reference to the article in your paper of
August 8th to the effect that one of
our city aldermen found that a scale
used for weighing out coal to the public
at the G. T. P. wharf v/as out of balance
to the extent of 15 p.c. in favor of owner,
we wish to state that we endeavor to
keep our coal scales balanced correctly,
and if at any time any of our customers
should find that they do not get full
weight and count from us they will
confer a favor by making it known, as
we shall always endeavor to give full
value for the money we receive.
We understood, however, that it was
not our scale referred to.
��� Thanking you for this space.

REALLY TRUE GOLD ROMANCE
Indians Paid Lansom in Nuggets to Hudson Bay Post at
Port Simpson Half a Century ago
Dat.
Pub.
The discovery of Gold Harbot, Queen
Charlotte Islands, was first made by an
Indian igornant of its value. A pocket
of glittering gold ore, forty feet long,
eight feet wide at the surface and taper ng to two inches at twelve feet in
depth was actually handed over to the
Hudson Bay Company in 1851 as a ransom for their influence in liberating
three Haida Indians from captivity, according to Cyrenus Mulkey, an old-time
prospector of California. Mr. Mulkey
is now in his seventy-ninth year and
has visited the Queen Charlotte Islands
for the fifth time in 58 years. Upon
his return there recently a large number of old-time Indians were glad to
meet him, remembering him as an old-
time tillicum.
Mr. Mulkey starts his story by saying
that Fort Simpson was established in
1837 by the Hudson Bay Company with
Sir James Douglas in charge, who
brought the first steamship round the
Horn, the old Otta, in 1837. The Otta
went back to the old country the same
year with a cargo of potatoes from
Masset.
In 1851, a lone Indian and his squaw
who had escaped from the fierce buttle
between the Tsimpseans and Haidas,
were hiding near Gold Harbor, living
on bark and roots, and by accident
broke off some of the gold ore when
making a landing with their canoe.
Realizing that it was something unusual they kept a sample of this quartz,
and later showed it to the chief of the
Haidas, who was also ignorant of its
value. He however, took three small
soap boxes full of this ore over to Fort
Simpson to Mr. Douglas, thinking it
might be of value to him in securing the
assistance of Mr. Douglas in getting the
release of his three Indian warriors who
were taken prisoners during the battle
referred to. When the first box of gold
was placed on the counter before Mr,
Douglas he could hardly believe his eyes
and asked where this "cultus" rock had
come from. The Indian explained to
Mr. Douglas how tt was found and how
he had gone back and broken off three
boxes of this "Skookum" rock. Mr.
Douglas did not-.le4r-4.he chief know of
its real value but requested him to bring
the other two boxes and leave them
with him and he would see what he
could do towards releasing the prisoners.
As a result some time later the three
warriors were released and sent home.
During the following year 1852, the
Hudson Bay Company, after being shown
its location by the old chief and the men
who first discovered it, began work on
the larg pocket of gold with old-fashioned crude drills and black powder as mining implements. Then the real excitement
began, for chunks of all kinds and sizes
of almost pure gold ore filled the air in
every direction with the first shot. In
fact for some time they continued to loose
large quantities of this ore from every
blast as it fell for hundreds of feet into
the harbor, even falling on the decks of
some of the ships in the harbor. They
finally discovered they were wasting too
much of this precious ore and began devising means of covering over the surface
with logs roped together before making
the blast.
Mr Mulkey says there were six other
ships in the harbor besides their own at
that time. Theirs was the brig Eagle, a
two masted schooner, and owned jointly
by himself, Mr Abraham Way of New
York, and Andy Burge of Oregon.
Captain McLeod was in charge of the
boat. This was in June, 1852.
The first report of the fabulously rich
ore reached Oregon through a discharged
employee of the Hudson Bay Company.
Soon after several parties were organized
to go to the rich gold diggings. One party
was made up of some twenty-seven in
in number. They set out from Oregon to
the Islands with a three masted ship,
arriving in bad weather in Cumshewa
Inlet, opposite the old Indian village.
Some of the natives went out to the ship,
which was lying at anchor and offered to
pilot them around to a safe harbor. The
white men being suspicious, however did
not accept their offer but remained at
anchor until some time in the night, when
the storm increased and they were wrecked in front of the Ihdian village and
taken prisoners by the Indians for nearly
a year, and had it not been for one of the
chiefs, old Skidans, they would have all
been murdered on the spot. Old Skidans,
however, kept them after securing all of
the plunder, clothing &c. that they had
and sent word to Mr Douglas, who
communicated with the Oregon government. Through him they were finally
released.
Mr Mulkey says that there were about
9,300 Indians on the Islands at that time
made up appromimately as follows:
2,600 at Massett; 800 at Gold Harbor;
1,600 at Skidegate; 1000 at Cumshewa;
800 at Skidans; 700 at Clew; and about
800 at Ninstin; all ,at war with the
Tsimpseans and other mainland tribes.
Their principal warfare being carried on
in large war canoes made from huge cedar
logs as large as 82 feet in length and eight
and a half feet beam, carrying an average
of about 105 warriors each, using bows
and arrows and spears as their only weapons, and in some cases Mr Mulkey says
their captives were actually roasted and
eaten   at   some   of   their   war   dances.
Mr Mulkey is not surprised to learn
that the stamp mill in operation at
Gold Harbor was actually stamping out
gold bricks at the rate of seventy-five
to a hundred dollars a ton and he predicts
that several other large pockets of gold
that are liable to be struck in Gold
Harbor will again surpriaaj tho whole
world.
Mr Mulkey can quote more in facts
and figures regarding the mineral wealth
of Queen Charlotte Islands than almost
any other living man, from the fact of
his age and experience coupled with his
personal and continued visits to the
Islands, and he predicts that the Islands
will soon have a mining boom equal to
the Klondike or Cobalt, with much less
hardship and equally as good if not
better results, owing to easy access and
rich deposits of high grade gold
ore, some of which he says, are already
sufficiently developed to prove their
value.
The recent rich discoveries of free
milling high grade ore near Skidegate
and the west coast of Moresby Island
has already attracted a lot of old-time
California and Cobalt miners and capitalists in this direction, which he says will
make this the New Eldorado of this, our
last West. Mr Mulkey has come back to
the Islands to stay and enjoy some of its
prosperity  that  must  surely  come.

hundred more telephones are on their
way here making a total of four hundred
phones on hand.
The batteries are now charged, or
at least will be by this evening. The
engine has been operating for the past
fifty-two hours. It will take a day or so
to test out all the lines and to get ready
for operating. Probably Friday afternoon
or evening the work will be completed.
The system will be started off with
three operators. One will be on from 8
a.m. to 6 p.m. with an hour at noon
another will take the noon hour and then
from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and the third
will take the night shift. This will give
Prince Rupert an all night service.
Superintendant Love has engaged the
operators and they will be given a trial.

TAKES   A   HOLIDAY
Harry Smith Has Gone South For a
Month's   Rest.
Harry Smith, of Stewart, accompanied
by his son, were in town a few days last
week doing a little business and taking
a rest. They left Saturday night for the
south where they will spend the next few
weeks on a vacation. Mr.Smith says that
since he went to Stewart last March he
has worked steadily twenty hours a day
without a moment's rest. He is now going
to take a rest. In speaking of Stewart he
said that business all spring and summer
had been very brisk and everyone was
well satisfied. The town is growing and
will continue to grow as the stuff is in
those rocky mountains which will attract men and money and make Stewart
grow. As to the railway he said that
trains would be operating on the first
three or four miles in a few days and that
twenty miles would be completed this fall.
He could not speak so favorably about
the government wharf. That is not
started yet, except that they are cutting
a few piles. The great drawback this
far has been transportation and the
wharf contractor needs to get a hustle on.
Harry Smith is an old Prince Rupert
boy and before coming here he was in
the newspaper business. He did not
fancy life in Prince Rupert and last spring
when fortunes were being made here, he
got a call from within to go to Stewart
and pioneer. His Rupert friends thought
him foolish, but wished him luck, for
Harry is a good fellow, anyway. He
packed a cargo of general merchandise
and shipped it and himself to the northern
mining camp. He arrived there about the
first of March when the snow was deep
on the ground and the town a desolate
valley with mountains thousands of
feet high on all sides and these were
deep with snow. He got busy and with
assistance shot up a log cabin as his
first store. This was soon replaced with
a substantial frame building and added to from time to time until it was
known all over the country as Harry
Smith's Big Store. His business grew
with leaps and bounds. His place was
made the head quarters for the whole
district and trains of pack horses came
to and left the store for the mountains
with supplies for the miners and prospectors. Harry did the business and
his bank roll grew with the business until
it got so large he could no longer keep
track of it. He was liberal to a degree
and never had a grouch except when he
thought the Optimist of Prince Rupert
was inclined to discredit the camp. He
has gotten over that and admits that it
was not so bad as he thought and that
he was cross at the time. Harry is
today a rich man and has retired from
active control of the store, although he
has still large interests in the district
and will return there in a few weeks to
keep   tab   on   them.
Along with his business Harry Smith
has always been the head of the town
and father of the flock. Everybody
went to him for advice for help and
sympathy. He is a man with ideas and
lead the way in all public undertakings.
In short Harry Smith is king of Stewart.

many places narrow. Sentinel Island
situated about four miles north and
east of Shelter Island, is the key to
the narrow passageway by Shelter Island. This passage is strewn with
reefs and at some points is less than
a mile in width. Sentinel Island is
a jagged rock about 250 yards long
and with long, tooth-like reefs projecting at the north and south ends.
Pilot Richardson, on his arrival at
Vancouver, said:
���"We. were going at twelve-knot
speed. Owing to the haze which hung
over the water it was difficult to see
far ahead and the rocks were not visible
until we were almost upon them and it
was too late to avoid a disaster. Every
effort was made to keep the ship off the
reef, but it struck and remains fast.
"I knew the peril of the reef and
was watching the course closely. Steam
on the pilot house window must have
deceived me."
Richardson has been piloting through
the Lynn Canal for eleven years, and
knows every foot of channel.
Sentinel Islet on which the Princess
May struck is a rocky isle standing
bold in Lynn Canal, which has for the
most part precipitous sides with glaciers in places reaching the sealine.
and a lighthouse with a fog alarm has
been established there since shortly
after the Klondike rush.
Seen from the northwest, looking
down Lynn Canal, the rock stands out
well in the channel, hence its characteristic name. It is the northwesternmost
of a -;hain of islands, stretching from
Point Lena for ten miles, and is about
two miles from the shoreline. A reef
stretches out a quarter of a mile from
the islet, and it was probably on this
that the C. P. R. liner struck. There
are two low and wooded islands, Benjamin and North Island, between Sentinel Islet and the mainland, and between it and Aooron Island, southernmost of the chain, are Bird and Gull
Islets, low and wooded.
Eagle and Herbert glaciers distribute
bergs into the canal opposite the island
chain. Battery Point on which the
steamer Amur struck and badly holed
her hull a few years ago is nearer Skagway. The Amur would probably have
met the same fate as the Princess May
had she also been a single-bottomed vessel. The double bottom was badly
torn on that occasion, and the steamer came south low down in the water.
The scene of the disaster is almost opposite where the steamer Clara Nevada blew up during the Klondike
rush and went down   with all hands.
Fruit  Inspector Leaves
Robt. G. Clarke, second assistant
to Thomas. Cunningham, Provincial
Inspector of fruit pests, left
for Vancouver on the Prince
George this morning after a visit of four
weeks between Prince Rupert and Stewart
for the purpose of inaugurating the
system of fruit inspection here that
prevails at other ports of entry throughout the Province. He has selected Harry
H. Morton, one of the pioneers of Prince
Rupert, for the position .of local inspector. Mr. Clarke spent the last three
weeks with Mr. Morton instructing him
in the work and he believes he will make
an acceptable as well as a competent
and painstaking official.
Mr. Clarke is pleased with the northern
country and has great faith in Prince
Rupert, and he looks for big developments
up the Skeena in the fruit growing belt.
Some of the strawberries on the market
he says are as fine as you could get at
Vancouver or Victoria The latest reports from Okanogon indicate that there
will be from 75,000 to 100,000 boxes of
peaches shipped from there this season,
and the crop of fruit on the lower mainland and Vancouver Island will be good
as the season has been very   favorable.

It was the monthly meeting of the

there was no council meeting nor any
other attraction going on, not enough
members turned up to enable the president and secretary to do business.
Calgary Very Crowded
There is little room even for improvement, in Calgary. The churches are
