BIG SEATTLE FIRE
OVER $1,000,000 WORTH OF PROPERTY
DESTROYED IN AN HOUR.
Started at Galbraith Dock and Spread by Full Gale to
Adjoining Buildings���Six Blocks Entirely Destroyed���
Three Firemen Lose Their Lives���Hospitals Crowded
With Injured   by Fire and Those Trampled   Upon.
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, June 11.���A fire broke out in
a stable at the rear of the Galbraith-
Bacon docks last night at half past ten,
and almost immediately there was a conflagration that illumed the sky for miles
and miles, and could be plainly seen at
Tacoma and Everett. Attracted by the
ruddy glow in the heavens thousands
flocked to the waterfront from all parts
of the city. Every theatre was emptied
immediately, as if the fire had suddenly
broken out in that particular building.
The flames were fanned by a southwest
wind which approximated to a full gale,
and the fire spread with great rapidity
despite the efforts of the fire-fighters,
Great yellow tongues of flame would
shoot up carrying with them burning
brands and shower of sparks that fell
on adjoining buildings over a wide area.
Soon the fire seized with greedy grasp
warehouse after warehouse and block
after block, until it was feared the entire
northern part of the town was doomed.
It was common to hear spectators remark that it was the most amazing
and disastrous fire since the one of eighty-
nine, when the whole city was laid waste.
The stable on Elliott avenue where the
fire started and the Galbraith-Bacon
docks were seen to be doomed when the
first streams begun to play on them, and
while attention was being paid to the
saving of adjoining buildings the great
roof of the Galbraith warehouse fell in
with a crash and an immense roar of
ember-laden flame.   Both fire boats had
big streams playing and practically the
entire fire force of the city was centered
at the spot . Within the fire zone men
and women struggled, women screaming
and children wailing. The thousands of
occupants of business houses, hotels,
lodging houses and residences were wildly fighting to escape against thoae
rushing in to witness the fire.
Hundreds of the beleagured lingered to
hastily gather up their most cherished
belongings and it is feared many tarried
too long and their charred bodies will
tell the tale when the piles of debris are
worked over. For an hour there was an
immense crowd fleeing south with the
impact of a greater crowd struggling to
witness the spectacle, and in the struggle
many were trampled upon and had to
be taken to the hospitals. Later on
hundreds who had escaped from burning buildings walked the streets shivering in night clothes in the cold and pit-
less rain.
The ambulances seemed to be as busy
as the fire-fighters, Everywhere could
be heard the rapid clang-clang of their
gongs as the police endeavored to force
a way for them. The whole of the police
reserves were called out, but it was impossible to maintain the fire lines.
How many lost their lives is not yet
known. Three firemen are included in
the death toll. ,They were fighting heroically to stop the flames wrapping around
the storehouses and buildings between
First avenue and Wall street when they
were caught in an explosion which top
pled forward the front of the building.
As this fell a sheet of flame was carried
by the high wind right down the crowded street and the ambulances picked up
the most badly scorched. There may be
several  bodies under the  fallen  walls.
Not far from the scene the firemen
operatingnn engine had to flee for their
lives and leave the apparatus to be destroyed , when live wires fell and were
entwined about them.
To Patrolman G. J. Gleason belongs
the credit of saving the life of one woman.
She was a roomer in Hotel Walfish, the
northern half of which was destroyed.
She had left the building with some of
her' valuables but apparently forgot
something dear to her. While the north
end of the building was a mass of flames
she rushed back through the entrance.
She was detected by the patrolman as
she disappeared uj> the stairs and he
immediately gave chase. He captured
her in the thick smoke and had to carry
her out bodily, she screaming and fighting against it.
Police Matron Dehan has issued a call
for clothing for women who escaped the
fire with the loss of all their possessions
Many were unaware of the dangerous
proximity of the Amines until the smoke
drove them out.
The loss will be immense and it is now
said one million dollars will not begin
to cover it. The area is said to approximate to that of the great fire of eighty-
nine, while the buildings are larger and
of a more costly character.
CAPTAIN B. L JOHNSON
WHO WILL COMMAND THE G.T.P.
STEAMER PRINCE RUPERT
One of the Youngest Officers on the
Pacific Coast and One of the Best���
A Sketch of His Career as a Deep
Sea Sailor and Officer.
It will be learned with much pleasure
all along the coast that B. L. Johnson,
of Victoria, will have charge of the
Steamer Prince Rupeit, the first G. T.P.
coast steamer bet wee n Vancouver and the
city of Prince Rupert. Capt. Johnson
is only 32 years of age. He was born in
Liverpool Eng., and has spent many
years on the seas. The fact that
he received the appointment as captain of the first Grand Trunk Pacific
boat is a guarantee that he stands with
the first rank of officers. His many
friends in Prince Rupert and all along
the coast will extend hearty congratulations to him and wish him every success.
Capt. Johnson is married and his
family lives in Victoria. He will, however, bring them to Prince ilupert to
live when the home port is established
here.
The Captain entered upon his
apprenticeship with Nicholson McGill's
sailing ships in 1891. He came to the
Pacific Coast on the ship Borrowdale,
from Liverpool, in 1894.    He remained
Stock Exchange. The company was organized by a number of the leading
business men of the city, and received
its incorporation papers May 7, 1910.
In the meantime the offiers had secured
accommodations, and opened with its
first call on 'Change May 22, 1910. The
charter members, of which there are
twenty-five paid in entrance fee of $25
the exchange at present has 27 members
while the membership is limited to 40
at an entrance fee of $50. Daily calls are
held at 11 a.m. and the members holding seats are displaying a lively interest
in thc work, an interest that is destined
to continue and increase as the development of the properties and the formation
of new companies directs attention to the
fortunes to be made in local stocks. In
addition to handling Portland Canal,
Hazelton, Alice Arm and stocks of the
various other mining districts, the Board
will deal in municipal stocks and debentures, and industrial stocks of particular interest to local residents and investors, while all the Cobalt stocks can
be bought and sold. The Exchange keeps
in close touch with the Toronto Stock
Exchange, of which board Mr. Evans,
secretary of the exchange retains his
seat. As indicative of the wide-spread interest aroused in the local exchange, it is
interesting to note that the Seattle
Minnig Exchange has made overtures t
the local officials with the idea of maintaining close relations and to keep informed on the development of the districts and the work of the local    body
NEW BUILDING INSPPECTOR
M.   J.   McNeil   hag   had   25   Years
Experience
M. J. McNeil the new building inspector for Prince Rupert is busy preparing himself for his duties which will
commence in a few days, or as soon as
the council get the necessary by-laws
passed. Mr. McNeil is a carpenter and
a building contractor. He has had some
25 years experience in Canada and the
United States. He put in eleven years
in Boston, Mass., during which time he
erected a number of large blocks using
brick and concrete and under the instruction of building and sanitary inspectors. He knows the building trade
thoroughly and should be a good man
for the city. He caine here from Fairbanks, Alaska, and has been in the city
about ten months. He is a native of
Sydney, C. B.

The Optimist has received a
communication from the Indians
at Port Essington in reference
to the Indians at the fire and the
part played by Constable Fitzgerald
The writer states that the Indians all
worked hard and did their best. Alfred
Wedildahed, upon the request of Constable McDonald, got the Indians out
and started to work. They also brought
out their apparatus from the reserve
and everybody did well iin fighting the
flames. Then the writer states that Constable Fitzgerald went up to Wedildahed and accused him of trying to keep
the Indians from working and the latter
denied it. The Constable is also charged
with having knocked down an old man
and a scrap ensued in which several men
took part. The next morning Constable
Fitzgerald laid a complaint against Alfred
Wedildahed and he appeared for trial in
the afternoon. He was charged with
"unlawfully trying to stop the Indians
fighting the fire," and Barriman, agent
of Indian affairs, acted as counsel for
Wedildahed and as the Constable had
no evidence to produce the case was
dismissed. The Indians are sore at
Constable Fitzgerald and claim that he
causes more trouble than all the others
combined.

Commander Charles Dennison Roper,
of the British Navy, has arrived in
Ottawa to assist in the organization
of the Canadian Navy, and assume the
duties of Commander J. D. Stewart,
who has been in Canada for some time,
but who has left for England to take
H. M. S. Rainbow from British waters
to   the   Pacific   Coast.
Capt. Roper is only 33 years of age
but is regarded as one of the smartest
officers in the service. He is the second
son of Mr. George Roper, a well-known
Yorkshire gentleman.
Commander Roper has been engaged by the Canadian Government for
a term of two years, and he said on
arrival that he looked forward with
great pleasure to his sojourn in this
country, of which he has read and
heard so much. He is a typical York-
shireman and son of the sea, with, a
hearty engaging manner and a ruddy
weather-beaten complexion.
He has been a sailor since his boyhood and speaks with pleasure of the
six years spent on the staff of Lord
Charles Beresford, one of Britain's
heroes. He has just left H. M. S. Grafton, a training ship stationed at Portsmouth.
Commander Roper has lost no time
in getting after his duties. He was
busy at work in his offices in the Canadian Building soon after his arrival.

CRIMINALITY    IN    THE    WEST.
The Canadian correspondent of the Boston Transcript writes to his paper as
follows:-
"Colonel White, comptroller of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police of Canada,
tells me there is no reasonable ground for something which he has recently heard in
Boston, i.e., an assertion that "village and country life in the Canadian West is
becoming demoralized; that the police are unable to cope with the situation, that
there are as many petty offences and as much bad conduct there as in any of the
American Western States." Nobody can know the truth in this matter as well as the
alert colonel, who has been the head and centre of the force for many years. He receives monthly reports from five divisional posts and sixty-four posts and sixty-
four attachments and one post in the territories, including the Yukon and the
Hudson Bay region. These monthly reports touch every sort of development in the
policed regions. They are curiously particular in reference to crime, since they set
forth details of cases in any way notable."
It is our privilege says the Vancouver Mail to corroborate what Col. White says
We have lived in the territories they work^ and we have worked in the districts they
live in. We have hit the trail time and again and have buck-boarded the flats in cold
and heat in company with the R. N. W. M. P., and one thing has always impressed
us, that was the absence of crime and the placid order to be found in the new provinces of Western Canada.

The Princess May left for Vancouver
at ten o'clock this morning.
The Humbolt came in about noon
with all her passenger accommodation
crowded, most of them booked through
to points in the interior and principally
for Iditarod.
as formerly, and there were few from
here booked for the new city on the
canal.
All the clerks on the waterfront were
talking this morning about the dance
to be given by the Publicity Club on
Wednesday night, and growing excited
as to their individual chances of receiving invitations.
The Camosun cleared for Stewart at Tne City of Seattle reached here with
half past six this morning. She had not! a banner list of passengers. She had 190
nearly as many passengers for Stewart '������ f'rst class and 51 second, and of the whole
number only forty-two were booked for
way points. The passengers landed here
were Ethel Golden, Frankie Dickson,
Margie Schultz, W. Davis, G. A. Dyer,

At the Circque de Paris Hogan, a
pupil of Harry Lewis won the French
heavyweight championship by knocking
out Loreau in the twelfth round of a
twenty round match. Loreau was trained by Duke Auileans, Billy Papke's
trainer.
Sam Langford is in San Francisco
and is preparing to establish training
quarters at Milletts, Colma, for his
fight with Kaufman, which takes place
June 18th, Kaufman is training at
Harbin Springs.
John Johnson is still taking the long
road route every morning, and he
hopes to enter the ring against Jeffries weighing 210 pounds. Yesterday
he weighed 216 1-3 pounds after his
morning ten miles.
E. Robert Mitchell, University of
Mississippi star pitcher, signed with
the Clubs, will not report. He has written Chance saying his intended wife
refuses to let him play professional
baseball.
Before a crowd considerably smaller
than the one that come out to see James
J. Jeffries box in the same arena a week
ago, Jack Johnson sparred six rounds
with his regular sparring partners,
George Cotton and Marty Cutler.
Johnson displayed all the form of a heavy
weight champion of the world, according
to fight experts who crowded the ring
side. He was clever and fast in his work
and the crowd applauded him generously
after each round. He did not do any
hard punching, however, and failed
to create any excitement by his ex
hibition.

believed by the Publicity Club to be
liable to clash, and the Eagles, as

postponed thlir ball to a later date not
yet fixed.

W. M. Brewer, the assayer and mining
promoter, boarded the Princess May at
Ketchikan  on  his  way  to  Vancouver.
Colonel Sutherland, the well known
mining operator, came down on the
Princess May from Juneau and has a
large  party  with  him  for  Vancouver.
Among those staying at the Grand
Trunk Inn are J. T. Phelan and his

Police Court
Chas. Keck another drunk was fined
$11 and costs.   He paid his fine.
Frank Martini who has been held for
several days as a vag, will appear before
the magistrate this afternoon.
A Perrs, an ordinary drunk and disorderly was given a very severe lecture
by the magistrate and allowed to go.
When collecting his property Perrs refused to take the bottle of whiskey he
had when arrested. He said he would
never again taste or handle the stuff.
Henry George was charged with
supplying the above two women with
liquor. The defence claimed that the
women, while Indians, had been married
to white men for several years and were
living in a white community. Therefore
they did not come under the Indian
Act.    The case was dismissed.
Magistrate Carss had a busy time this
morning with drunk and disorderly
prisoners. Five of them lined up before
him awaiting trial. Two of them were
Indian women from Alaska and three
were men. The women pleaded guilty
and were convicted but allowed their
freedom on suspended sentence.
