(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 28.���Bayardo started
as favorite today for the Goodwood Cup,
but was defeated in the stretch by Magic.
Twenty to one was freely bet against
Magic yet the favorite had great difficulty in securing even second place.
Bud was third. The results of the race
were a surprise all through, Bud being a
sixty to one shot.

Police   Searching    For    Husband.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 28.���The young bride
of Arthur P. Browne last night committed suicide by shooting herself.
Before marriage she was a Miss Day, of
New Westminster and had only been
married a few weeka. She had made her
preparations for the commission of the
erimo, among which was a note explain-
lr>E why she was driven to such a step.
Tliis stated���"I have done it all for
Arthur." Other statements contained
'n the note started the police out in a
hunt fojr the ydung husband and there
may be further developments.
Mrs. Browne was only nineteen and
her friends say that from her actions
she was undoubtedly suffering from
depression caused by her husband paying
80 much attention to other women.

(Special to the Optimist)
Tokio, July 27.���The absence of all
reports from the warships sent to the
relief of the .sufferers from the Hokkado
earthquake, leads the authorities to
believe the convulsions must have been
more serious than reported. All the warships have wireless and why there should
be no further reports of conditions is
causing alarm. It is known from the
latest despatches that fifty thousand
people are homeless, injured and starving.

FENIAN RAID VETERANS

Ask   For    Scrip
Victoria, July 25.���Veterans of the
Fenian raids are seeking to receive
similar rewards as those given to the
Canadians who fought in South Africa.
A meeting was held here last night to
discuss the matter of sending a deputation to lay the matter before Sir
Wilfrid Laurier on his arrival here
next month. Thp veterans of the fights
in which the Fenians were driven back
from Canada, ask that they each be
given scrip for government lands similar
to the award given the fighting men who
served in South Africa.
FOUR KILLED
BY STRIKERS
STRIKE-BREAKERS WERE UNDER
POLICE   PROTECTION
Fierce Riot at Brooklyn Sugar Refinery in Which Scores Were Injured, Four Were Killed Outright
And Three Will Die.
Captain Nicholson has similar ideas
to those expressed by Dan Mann in
regard to the tourist possibilities of the
steamer run from Vancouver here, but
the Captain's ideas were being put into
practice before Mr. Mann took the voyage up here which lead him to burst
into enthusiasm as to its scenic advantages. Captain Nicholson says the
Grand Trunk company prepared to go
after the tourist business by the time its
new steamers were in operation, and the
first day through tickets were offered
to Prince Rupert at the company's New-
York office six were sold. The sales
have since  been   gradually  increasing.
When the transcontinental line is
completed the company will have the
greatest tourist route in the world for
all the year round. The year will open
with excursionists from the east by way
of Los Angeles and California coast
points, where the tourists will stay until
the weather gets too warm for them and
then they will go northward with the
wild ducks and hear the crocus cuss
because winter lingers so long in the
lay of spring.
By that time tlie"heat in tne east will
have become so unbearable that a rush
northward will be inevitable. But a short
distance north, just over the boundary
of New York state, and they are in a
land of summer whose sunshine is tempered by cooling breezes carrying the
perfumes of boundless prairies.
About the time the Yukon ducks are
flying south again, our tourists in the
north will hanker after a spot where the
sun gives out more genial warmth, and
the California coast will catch the trade.
The great resorts there welcome this
combination with the Grand Trunk,
and both parties to this mutually beneficial arrangement will feel its effects
from now on, as will be shown in the
largely increased steamer travel to this
port during the balance of this season.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, July 28.��� One of the most
frightful riots took place this morning
on the Brooklyn docks of the American
Sugar Refinery company. The trouble
started when a number of strike breakers
were put to work under the protection
of the police. As soon as the men begun
a huge mob rushed the squad of policemen, two being toppled into the river
and attacked the workmen. Revolvers
were drawn on both sides and cudgels
and bricks were freely used as weapons
and as missiles. The fierce fighting
lasted over half an hour, until the police
reserves came up. They lined up and
immediately the command was given to
advance. The police rushed into the
crowd clubbing right and' left indis
criminately, and the riot was soon ended.
Many of the first batch of police were
badly injured. Four dead bodies were
picked up and over a score were bo badly
injured they were sent to the hospital.
It is believed that three of these cannot
recover.
Speculation in Calgary Lots
Calgary, July 28���(Special)���Seventy-
five thousand dollars worth of lots in
the new Canadian Pacific railway subdivision were sold during the one afternoon of yesterday.
More Troops Sent to Barcelona and
Saragossa���Revolutionists Urging
General Strike to Begin Tomorrow
Morning.
(Special to the Optimist)
Toulouse, France, July 28.���The
Spanish military censorship has been
still further tightened and especially
as against San Sebastian on the French
frontier, which has been the only point
fo- a couple of weeks th ough which
reliable news of the course of the revolution was obtainable. Messages arrived here by courier yesterday direct
from Madrid with the latest intellegence.
The government is taking every precaution and hoping by the display of
military power to overawe those inclining to be rebelled. Two thousand
new troops have been dispatched to
Barcelona to reinforce the two thousand
gendarmes there. At Saragosa the
garrison has also been strengthened and
everything there is prepared for the
threatened uprising.
But the revolitionists are by no means
idle. All the walls in all the principal
cities are liberally placarded, as fast as
the police tear them down, with notices
issued by the revolutionary party urging
a general strike throughout the country
to begin tomorrow. Many preparations
are being made for this, people looking
forward to tomorrow morning as the
dawn of a great battle for constitutional
liberty and possibly for the declaration
of a republic.
GRAND   TRUNK   STRIKE   SITUATION   BECOMES  ACUTE.
Troops Going to Columbus Are
Stoned by Strikers.���Yard-Master
at Buffalo Ordered to Leave
Town or be  Shot.
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, July 28.- The general
opinion here seems to be that the men
are losing in the G and Trunk Pacific
railway strike although the men
themselves do not for a moment
admit this. Certainly they are losing
much of the public sympathy, owing
to the inconvenience caused by the
strike's duration and the unpromising lookout, as well as from the
menacing position the men have taken at many points along the system.
It is rerorted that the men have
offered to go to work under the original offer made by President Hays
pending the appointment of the arbitration board, but this cannot be
verified.
CRIPPEN ON

CONTRADICTORY REPORTS ARE

Date  of  Coronation
London, July 28.���(Special)���It is
currently reported that the date for the
coronation next year will be June 21st
or June 22nd.
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, July 28.��� 12:15 p.m.���
A wireless despatch just received from
the steamer Montrose says that Dr.
Crippen and Mile Leneve are both on
board, and that there is no doubt whatever about their identification.
The two will be handed over to the
police as soon as the Montrose is docked,
and held for the arrival of Inspector
Dowe, who took passage from Liverpool
on the Laurentic and is expected to land
at Rimouski and intercept the Montrose
there.
Detroit, July 28.���Four companies
of the First regiment have been sent
to Durand, where the strike situation
is acute. This is the central divisional
point   on   the    Grand   Trunk.
Hamilton, 0., July 28.-A troop
tram, carrying infantry to Columbus,
was stoned passing through here by
the   Grand   Trunk   strikers.
Buffalo, July 28.���The strike situation is growing more and more serious. Following a meeting of the strikers a delegation of strike sympathizers waited upon Yardmaster Foster and told him that he would be
shot unless he left the town at once.
The mob began to burn freight cars
last night and there were several
fights between strikers and strike
breakers, but nothing serious. This
morning the strikers seem to be desperate and the need of more troops
is   keenly   felt.
DECLARATION

PASSES    SECOND    READING    BY

Nonconformist Score an Important
Point by Passage of the Amendment.���Bill Will Now got Into
Committee of the Whole
Father Point, Que., July 28.���Chief
McCarthy and Inspector Denis, of the
provincial police, are here to assist
Inspector Dowe of Scotland Yard to
arrest Dr. Crippen and Mile Leneve
should they be on the Montrose. No
wireless has yet been received either from
the Montrose or the Laurentic.
Bryan  Now  a  Dead  One
Grand Island, Neb., July 28.���(Special)���By the defeat of Bryan's motion
at the Democratic plank convention
of Nebraska, the fact is made apparent
that his power in the state has very
much declined. He has been a power in
the state for twenty years.but that he is
so no longer is not in doubt.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 28.���At the second
reading of the Declaration bill in the
house of commons last night the Nonconformists introduced an amendment
which was debated at great length and
finally carried. The motion was to
substitute "I am a faithful Protestant"
in place of "I am a faithful member of the
Protestant church as by law established".
It was held by the non-conformists that
this made the British ruler a member
of what was at one time denominated
The Established Church, or the Church
of England. The declaration of his
religion should be confined to the sect
only and not one of the sects of Protestan-

NOT ON BOARD
BOTH   SARDINIAN   AND   MONTROSE COMMUNICATED WITH

���Canadian Police Puzzled by Admission of Scotland Yard Police.
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, July 27.���The wireless
station at Labrador is trying to get
communication with the steamer Montrose but so far has not picked her up.
The Canadian police are mystified over
the admission of Scotland Yard that the

Carter Cotton'* Retirement
The retirement of Hon. F. Carter Cotton from the editorial chair of the
Vancouver News Advertiser marks the
removal from active journalism of one
of the brightest writers in the province. For years Mr. Cotton has presided over the destinies of the News-Advertiser and as an editorial writer has won
widespread respect and appreciation. He
was not a man of superfluous verbiage
but the wealth of his writings lay in the
fact and reason that he always nurtured. Ever convincing in his arguments it was that simple, terse style
of his that earned for him the position he held so long.��� Nicola Valley

AN INVERTED THEORY
Aid. Lynch seems to have reversed the generally accepted theory, of a mixed
plan of charging municipal improvements. Of course that does not necessarily
prove Aid. Lynch's theories to be wrong any more than a Chinaman's method of
doing things backwards is wrong, but Oriental things are not popular in this city
and Aid. Lynch's ideas are rather hard to reconcile each to the other.
In most towns where some improvements are charged to the general fund
and others to frontage tax the plan is to charge street work to the whole city and
sewers to the property benefitted. The theory is that all citizens use ?he streets
but only the property abutting it can use the sewers. Aid. Lynch's theory is that
the adjoining property gets all the benefit of- an improved road but the whole
town is benefitted by a sewer because it will prevent a pestilance. It sounds
more like a misquoted primary lesson than a logical theory. Why not carry the
idea a bit further and have the city pay for the bath-tub and the soap.
Up to the present time residents have considered it an obligation to take care
of the disposition of their own sewage and have paid for it. A public sewer would
be greeted with favor because it would give opportunity for additional convenience
in the way of baths dnd lavatories. The user would be willing to pay for it because
it is a more economical method of getting rid of the waste.
This idea of an epidemic is rather thin logic. If the lack of sewers in section
one, where a small proportion of the people reside, is likely to cause an epidemic,
what is likely to occur in' sections five and six where residences are crowding in?
If the public chest should be made keep the people of section one clean and wholesome should it not wash the residents of sections five, six and seven and eight? An
epidemic of typhoid is just as likely to originate in a cess-pool in section seven as it is
in section one. '
What benefit is a sewer in section one to the man living in section seven, if his
neighbor has a cess-pool in his back-yard..
The ordinary[man who is unaccustomed to theorizing on the weighty problems
of civic affairs is likely to assume that if we are to have sewers to avoid an epidemic
then everybody should have a sewer but if the sewers are for the convenience of the
property and buildings in section one, then section one should pay for it.
LOST   IN  THE  FOG
City  Clerk  E.   A.   Woods   and   Mrs.
Woods Out on the Harbor
City Clerk E. A. Woods and Mrs
Woods had an uncomfortable experience
last night while boating on the harbor.
They crossed over to the rifle ranges
and when the fog made its appearance
they started for home, but the fog was
too fast for them and in a short time they
were unable to see the length of their
boat. Mr. Woods pulled ahead, thinking
he was coming straight across, but he was
going down the harbor all the time.
The fog bell on one of the steamers
soon told him that he was out of his
course and was lost. Being lost at sea
was a new experience for him, but he
made the best of it and awaited his time.
It was after midnight before he and
Mrs. Woods got home and they were
wet to the skin from the heavy fog.
TORPEDO BOAT TRIP
Took   the   Shrinen   to   Stewart   in
Record   Time
One of the features of the entertainment provided by the local brethren
for the visiting Shriners on Monday
night was a flying trip in a torpedo boat
to the mining camp and back. The
torpedo boat had come in to Rupert to
coal up and as some of the Shriners
wanted to see Stewart the boat was
chartered and the passengers got on.
The trip was made at the rate of forty
miles an hour and the torpedo boat got
back at three a.m. just in time to catch
the Princess Royal as she started for
Skagway. The authority for this story
is one of the passenger list and it is
published for what it is worth. It is
what he told his wife when he got home.

NO BLACK FLIES HERE
No Pestering Mosquitoes  Either and
But   Few   House   Flies
Passengers coming in on the Inlander
from up river points complained that
they were pestered by black flies at
several of the stopping places near this
end of the route and were surprised to
find there were none in the city.
Last week similar complaints came in
from Stewart, mosquitoes also being
particularly ferocious at that point,
as the faces and hands of many of the
travellers testified.
Prince Rupert people should therefore
consider themselves fortunate that they
can enjoy this hot weather free from
such pests. No mosquitoes or blacck
flies have been noticed in the city all
this summe-, and thee are few of the
common house flies. When sanitary
inspector looks after the cleanliness of
the stables there will be still fewer.

Stewart and Kelleher Coming Along
The Line from Edmonton
J. W. Stewart, of Foley, Welch &

from Edmonton. They started from there
last week and will probably be nearly
three months on the trip, and they will
make stops at various points to investigate the construction work. Foley,
Welch & Stewart have contracts on
the other side of Yellowhead pass as
well as on this side.
CONTRACT SIGNED
Westholme Lumber Co., Will Supply
The City With Lumber
The Westholme Lumber Co., signed
the contract this morning to supply
Prince Rupert with a million and a
quarter feet of lumber. They have
about half a million feet in the yards
here and the scow was sent south to the
mills today for another load. It will be
back in twenty to thirty days with
three quarters of a million feet more.
The Westholme Lumber Co., submitted
the lowest tender and the city was fortunate in getting the material for their
roads at such a low figure. The work
can start on the new plank roads any
time, so far as the lumber is concerned.

Iparatus for the transmission .of mili-
jry orders during a battle from one
ndy of troops to another has been tainted by Major Beddington of the En-
|ish army, who has devise'd and made
necessary easily portable plant
Jiich can be carried on horseback and
Icompany any cavalry or infantry
���rce.
Jit does not require half a day to er-
Jt, nor even half an hour, and messages
in be sent for scores of miles less or
lore by the apparatus. The whole ar-
Ingcment seems to be ideal, and the
ery thing needed, particularly for cavity operations in the field or for de-
iched outposts. It links up and makes
Ktebrate and sentient a leader's whole
Irength in the field for offence or de-
Ince.

BODY FOUND IN DUGOUT
Lonely   Prospector   Took   Sick  and
Froze   to   Death
Juneau, July 23.���The body of Thomas
Rox, froxen stiff, was found lying in a
bunk in a humble dugout on the shore
of Port Chatham, one of the many indentures of Cook inlet, by a party of
four natives. The natives were taking
food supplies to Rox, at the instance of
Alley, a Port Chatham trader, when the
shocking tragedy was revealed. The
natives immediately notified Steve
Melchoir, the nearest white inhabitant,
who returned with them to the late
home of the deceased, and carefully'interred the remains.
In the lonely prospector's rude dugout there remained plenty of food, but
but little clothing and no fire wood. The
theory is that Rox became ill, was confined to his bed and unable to gather
fire wood, which .was in plenty had he
been able to get out.
Rox was well known in the Cook inlet country, where he had resided for the
past ten years.

Just to have "furnished rooms

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

They will cheerfully, eagerly,

COAL NOTICE
Steel   Now   Laid   For   Thirty   Miles
Out of Prince Rupert
Skeena Und District-District of Queen Charlotte
Take notice that May lngraham intends to apply
to the Hon. Chief   Commissioner of Lands for a
license to prospect for coal and petroleum on 640
acres of land described as follows:
Cnmmencinit at a post planted in the North
East���'of Section 27. Township 10   Graham
l8V\nedncBe & SJff^fr JA"^   ��
Sniig0^  an" 8" ^TsS&SWSff ��f
Date 20th May, 1910. 0. D. Emmons, Agent
Pub. July 11.
It is but a question of a few months
when the construction trains will be
running to a point between Newtown
and Kitselas, and then for the next
year Kitselas will be the division end
and junction point between the railway and up river travel. The steel is
now laid about thirty miles out of Prince
Rupert, and it is being laid at the rate
of a little over one mile per day, after
it is laid east of mile 59, two miles and
better per day will be laid.
All contractors between Knox river
and Copper river have about finished
their work, none having over a month's
work more to do. The bridging of the
different streams presents no serious
problem, and allowing the track layer
to average two miles per day after they
are by mile 59, all streams will even at
that be bridged before the track is within
several miles of them.
It is safe to predict than in another
year settlers will be taken from Prince
Rupert to the Bulkley valley by rail, instead of part of the way by river steamers and the remainder distance by stage,
as is the case today.-
AN   ALASKA   VOLCANO
Mount    Shishaldi    Crater    is    Now
Merely Throwing Out Smoke
Juneau, Alaska, July 25.��� The
eruption of Mount Shjehaldi on Unimak
Island, is rapidly lessening, according
to Captain William Gregory, of the
lighthouse tender Amreria, which has
just arrived here from Unimak.
Recently the mountain was reported
to be shooting great sheets of pur flame
high into the skies. Now, Gregory says,
the crater is merely smoking, and the
sides of the peak are covered with snow
to the edge of the pit.
Gregory said that the lighthouse
keepers un Unimak Island, which is but
a short distance from the. mountain, are
not afraid to remain there. .

ADVERTISING
FOR A MAYOR
GERMANY'S METHOD OF SECURING   CIVIC   EXECUTIVE
Saves Election Expense* and May
Lessen Graft System Alderman
Lynch is so Afraid of Seeing Established in City of Prince Rupert,
Berlin, July 25.��� Following the
Herman theory that the best way to fill
a municipal office is to hire the best
available expert in the particular line of
work to be done, the city of Magdeburg,
by the president of its council, is advertising conspicuously in prominent German newspapers:
"The place of mayor of Magdeburg is
vacant. The salary is 21,000 marks per
year, including the rental of a dwelling
in the city hall. Besides the salary the
incumbent will receive 4000 marks
($1000) for his official expenses. Candidates should apply before Sept. 1."
The practice of hiring official mayors
is no novelty in Germany, where sometimes two cities bit in competition with
each other for a capable man. The
Magdeburg advertisement attracts special attention, as it is the first large city
to advertise in filling so important an
office. The retiring mayor, Dr. Lentz,
was lately promoted to be Russian minister of finance.
ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE

organized. The sub-committees will
look up several proposals in the way of
entertainment and will report back at a
meeting to be held at an early date.
No  Council  Meeting
There was no meeting of the city
council last night. Several of the members
had a meeting on in connection with the
Laurier reception. The city fathers will
convene tonight as usual.

Bay Team Runs Away
Beattie's fine team of bays were
feeling in a frisky mood Tuesday morning and started from Second avenue

bath. The dray fortunately struck the
corner of Mr. Crandall's office and the
team came to a full stop right on the
edge of the wharf.
