children in the primiary depart-

lorted that there were 27 pupils in the

ask them to walk away over to the
school in the winter weather with

NEGRO RIOTS ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES
Victory of Colored  Champion Sets  Thousands of Negroes Crazy
in all  the  Large   Cities���Hundreds  Are  Arrested.
Rioting all Night and Police Unable
To Quell Distrubance���Thousands
Rioting at Pittsburg ��� Reserves
Called Out in New York.
(Special to the Optimist)
Washington, July 5���Reports of negro
uprising are coming in from all over the
country, but none so sensational in
their character as the uprising in this
city. Seven thousand negroes and as
many whites were rioting all night.
The news of the victory of the colored
champion seemed to have crazed every
man of his race in the city. All the
police were ordered out last night and
are still on duty. It looks now as if
the troops would have to be called out
at   any   moment.
Shortly before midnight the whole
city was in a state of pandemonium.
White citizens going home, often just
as they were entering their residences,
were attacked. In many instances the
blacks followed them into the houses
and smashed the furniture. Hundreds
of drunken blacks attacked the white
men. It grew worse and worse around the
midnight hour. Some of the white
citizens banded against the negroes
and there was fighting all the way up
Pennsylvania Avenue clear to the vicinity of the White House. At one time
it was believed the mob of colored
people would make an attempt to enter
the presidential mansion.
Three negresses dragged three white
women into the street and stripped them
of their clothing. The howling and
yelling was something indescribable.
The fighting went ln all night and all
the police were engaged in it. In the
early hours the chief called upon citizens
to assist and a number of white men were
sworn in as special constables. With this
aid two hundred blacks were landed in
jail and an attempt was made to break
into the building to rescue them.
This large number of arrests did not
bring but a brief cessation to the rioting.
In half an hour it had started again with
renewed force. The mob of colored
people in the streets grew larger as the
morning hours crept on, and the women
were worse than the men.. All seemed
to be drunk and acted in the most
frenzied manner against the whites.
The black population of this city numbers one hundred thousands, and the
whole of them appeared to be emptied
into the streets.
At this wrting the police are nearly
exhausted and the federal troops may be
called out at any moment.
Hanged On  a Lamppost
New York, July 5, 11 a.m.���During
the rioting this morning the whites
succeeded in stringing one negro to a
lamp post on the Bowery and there was
a fierce fight around the post for a few
minutes. Eventually the police broke
in and cut the colored man down. He
was still alive.
News from "Joe".
Winnipeg, Man., July 2.���Writing
to a friend, Hon. Joseph Martin states
he will be in Winnipeg on election day,
next Monday, on his way to Vancouver)
Fight Still Goes On
Chicage, July 5.���All the negroes of
Chicago  "went  up  in the  air" over
PRINCE RUPERT INTERESTED
Yesterday afternoon half the
City were out looking for news
of the big fight at Reno. Bulletins were read in the opera house
and private ones were received
at the Prince Rupert Club and
the Exchange Grill. Summaries
of the rounds were posted on the
Optimist bulletin board where a
large crowd gathered. The flash
of the negro's victory was received just after the seventh round
and was discredited by many who
wished it otherwise. A few minutes after the receipt of the final
round The Optimist issued a special
with the complete story and the
whole edition of nearly 1000 copies was sold out before six o'clock.
A lot of money changed hands
here on the result, some having
wagered three to one on Jeffries
Johnson's victory and a number of race
fights has been the result. Ohe black
was killed and scores were badly injured. The fighting is still going on.
Only One Negro Killed
Omaha, July 5.���There was a fierce
race riot here last night but it was
cleverly handled by the police and quelled. One black was killed and many
colored were injured.
Negress Kills White Woman
Fort Worth, Tex. July 5.���In the race
rioting here last night a negress beat a
white woman to death. She was arrested
and a white mob is now howling around
the prison demanding that she be
lynched. A large number were injured
during thc rioting.
Hundred   Hurt in Riot.
Pittsburg, July 5���A thousand negroes
started a riot here soon after the news
came in of Johnson's victory and they
kept up the tumult all night. When interfered with by the police they resisted
and a fierce battle was fought in which
over a hundred people were severely
hurt. A large number of arrests were
made and this morning all seems quiet.
Wholesale Lynching Proposed
Wilmington, July 5.���All the negroes
seemed to get drunk on the news from
Reno and the white men had to band
themselves together to put down the
disturbance. No deaths have been reported but many were injured when the
two races came together in battle.
After matters had somewhat quieted
down the whites made a propositiom to
lynch all the negroes taken into custody
and started out to do this but wiser
counsels prevailed.
Twenty Negroes Shot.
New Orleans, July 5.���Race riots
started here around the fight bulletins
and when it began to look serious the
white men begun to arm themselves.
Some of the negroes were also armed
and there was a fusilade around the St
Charles hotel that lasted over half an
hour. In this some twenty negroes were
shot and several white men are known
to have been seriously wounded.
Six Blacks Were Killed at Roanoke,
Va., Twenty at New Orleans,
Three at Shreveport, One at Chicago and One at  Omaha.
(Special to the Optimist)
Roanoke, Va., July 5.���As the result
of the negro victory at Reno the colored
race of this city started on a mad rampage, attacking white men and destroying their property. Six blacks were
killed while committing depredations
and one white man was shot down while
defending his home.
Three Colored Men Killed
Shreveport, La., July 5���Three negroes
and one white man were killed in the
riots following the announcement of
the result of the Reno fight, and scores
were injured.
Dragged From Homes  and  Beaten.
Cincinnati, July 5.���Hundreds of
negroes clustered around the bulletin
boards giving news of the fight, got too
gay when it was announced that Johnson
had won and the whites took a hand in
the celebration. The negroes were driven
to their homes, then were dragged out
of their homes and beaten and warned
not to appear on the streets for the rest
of the day. They obeyed and there was
no more trouble. No deaths are reported
Hot Fight in Negro Quarter
New York, July 5.���Rioting started
in the negro section about ten o'clock
last night and a body of police was sent
down to quell the disturbance. Later
the colored people came out in great
force against the police and some of the
latter were severely handled. The police
reserve was called out this morning and
rode their horses through the mob, using
their clubs freely.   No deaths reported.
TWO   NEGROES   LYNCHED
Infuriated   Farmers   Have   a   Stern
Chase After Them.
Charleston, S. C. July 4.���Two negroes made what is claimed to be an
unwarranted attack upon a planter
named William Cox. Yesterday the
farmers in his neighborhood took up
the matter and it was not long before
the meeting was wrought up to a great
excitement. It was determined to go
gunning for the negroes and this was
done. On being surrounded the two men
gave themselves up. They were brought
into town and strung to a tree, the yell-
ling crowd emptying their revolvers and
squirrel rifles into the swaying bodies.
JUDGMENT FOR HAYS
Supreme Court Hands Down  Decision in Frewen Case.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 4.���Chief Justice
Hunter this morning handed down the
decision in the case of Moreton Frewen
versus President Hays of the Grand
Trunk Pacific. The'judgment is in favor
of the defendant. Frewen, through his
his attorneys, has given notice that the
decision will be appealed before the
higher court.
COAL SUIT FOR
FOUR MILLIONS
OPTION   ON   DUNSMUIR     COAL
LANDS   SUSTAINED
Chief Justice Hunter Gives Judgment for the Plaintiffs, Holding
That Their Option is Entitled to
Registration���Suit   Stands   Over.
Victoria, July 2���That the plaintiffs, Henry Croft et al were entitled
to registration of their option on certain
coal lands was the ruling of Chief Justice
Hunter upon a point of law arising out
of the suit of the aforenamed against
Hon. James Dunsmuir, Whiting, Percy
et al, for $4,600,000 damages. The suit
stands over until   after the    vacation.
It is alleged that the defendants
persuaded the owners of the lands in
question to break their contract with
the plaintiff, and give a second option to Whiting, which he attempted
to register before the plaintiff's option was registered.
The lands in question are included
in those ceded to William Mackenzi
in the purchase of the Dunsmuir coal
interests for $11,000,000.
RIGHTS IN THE ARCTIC
Statement that U. S. Will Contest
Canada's Sovereignty Unconfirmed
Washington, July 2.���The state department refuses to confirm the rumor
that the United States in contesting
Canada's sovereignty over certain portions of Arctic territory. This is a matter which will possibly be brought up
before the court at The Hague, in the
meantime the officials here do not desire to discuss it. It is acknowledged,
however, that there is some likelihood
of matter being discussed in connection with the Newfoundland fisheries
question which has been referred to the
Hague Tribunal.

Ottawa, July 2.���Mr. W. J. White,
inspector of immigration agencies in the
United States, reports to the department

Letters to the Editor
Skeena River Steamers.
Kitsumkalam, July 4, 1910.
Editor Optimist:
Reading in the columns of your-
esteemed contemporary "The Empire"
a couple of weeks ago an article describing a wonderful steam-boat race between
the White Flyer "Port Simpson" and the
Che-chaco " Inlander," I was amused
wherein it described the wonderful
speed of the "Queen of the Skeena" and
the way she left the poor panting
"Inlander" in her wake as if she was
standing still. I can't help from asking-
through your valuable columns to ascertain what happened the "Wonder
of the Skeena" on her last trip to Hazelton. She must have stopped and had a
picnic en-route. A Traveler.

A communication was received by
the council from the ministerial association drawing to the attention of
the council the necessity of securing
a plot of ground for a cemetery as soon
as possible.
Aid. Mobley and Aid. Pattullo moved
that the letter be replied to and the association informed that the   council is
already dealing with the matter.
Spoiling   the    Parks
Aid. Hilditch brought to the attention
of the council, on behalf of Aid. Barrow,
the fact that nearly all the trees in the
public parks were being cut down. He
thought that something should be done
at once to preserve the natural beauty
of the parks for the use of the future
citizens. There are notices up now but
the people pay no attention to them.
Aid. Pattullo thought that possibly
the local police force might have a moral
influence over them if they took action.
Or the government agent might take
the matter up.
The mayor said that Premier McBride
and one or more of his ministers would
be up in August and all these matters
would be taken up. In the meantime
the city should take action through the
government agent.
The Mayor will write the government
agent.

THE JOHNSON-JEFFRIES FIGHT.
The great world's championship pugilistic contest is over. The event which
has engrossed the attention of the sporting fraternity for months, and been the
centre of public interest for weeks, has passed. A lot of people are sorely disappointed
and many have a deal of easy money. Some go so far as to predict racial trouble
as a result and not a few philosophise on the outcome. As a matter of fact it is a
very minor event in the world's happenings and quite unworthy of any serious
consideration.
As an item of news interest it is probably without equal in many years. No
event in which only two men were contestants has ever before held the public stage
over such a great area.  But the interest was artificial, not natural.
As far as the championship of the "pugs" is concerned the world has little
care but the interest was "touted" so strongly by the sporting pages of the great
papers that it soon became an object of general news interest. The newspapers of
America really created the contest and then made the public grow enthusiastic
over it. By metaphorically fighting the battle every day with contradicting opinions
the public were coaxed into taking sides and making an issue. Men who do not
know a straight bunch in the eye from a short jab in the ribs wagered hundreds of
dollars on their opinion as to the outcome. Others to whom the personality of the
combatants would be repulsive read with fervor every detail of the contest. It was
a subject for daily conversation in every part of America. The enthusiasm was
astonishing, particularly when one considers that the manly art is not generally
admired and that the physical perfection of the pugilist is not developed for any
good to mankind but merely for applause and financial gain.
One might argue that it is a sign of degeneracy on the part of the public, but
it is rather a temporary intoxication���another form of dementia Americana. In
a day it will be forgotten.

Aid. Pattullo Would Like to See Five
Hundred Working on Streets.
Aid. Pattullo remarked this morning
to the Optimist in reply to the usual
quiry "what's new?" "I wish I could
tell you that 500 men had been put to
work. That would be the greatest piece
of news that was ever given out in this
town."
Every citizen will heartily agree with
Aid. Pattullo. The town needs improved
streets and improved roads in the worst
way. Traffic is growing too rapidly
to be handled satisfactorily or economically on the existing steep grades and
narrow roads The town also needs
the pay roll and the circulation of money
as at the present time practically all
the money in the city is tied up in real
estate and improvements and it requires
a big pay roll to keep things moving for
a few months.
The new city engineer will arrive
here next Monday, but it will take him
some time to prepare his plans for street
grading and for the water works system.
In the meantime the council and the
streets committee will have to hustle
along the smaller stretches of street
grading that are being petitioned for.
On those small sections a good sized
gang could be employed.
J. E. Merryfield Home
J. E. Merryfield arrived in the city
this morning on the Str. Inlander from
Kitselas where he has been for the past
month looking after his business interests there. He reports everything
very prosperous in that town, especially
in mining circles. He predicts that the
mineral deposits up the river will shortly
not only rival but surpass the deposits
at Stewart. So far only prospecting
has been done up the river and a little
development work, but that little warrants the miners displaying the utmost
confidence. In the near future a great
deal of Prince Rupert money will go
up the river to the mines.
MARINE
Captain John Irving arrived on the
May and is staying at the Grand Trunk
Inn on his way to Stewart.
The Cottage City made a hasty call
this morning on her way from the north.
She had ten passengers from Prince
Rupert for Seattle.
County Court
His Honor Judge Young will return
from the North on Saturday night and
will hold the July county court here on
Monday July 11th. There are ten cases
to come up, all in civil class. His Honor
has been holding county court at Atlin.
Excursion Postponed
The moonlight excursion announced
for tomorrow night under the auspices
of class 7 of the Presbyterian Sunday
School has been postponed until further
notice. When the Steamer Inlander
arrived here this morning it was found
that an immense cargo of freight was
awaiting her and as the river is rising
she will not be able to delay her return
trip up the river.
It takes a lot of courage for a man to
admit that he is afraid.

FIVE  MONTHS  IN   JAIL.
Geo.    Emmett    Committed    on    a
Charge   of  Vagrancy.
Geo. Emmitt once more appeared
before Magistrate Carss Saturday morning. His case had been adjourned from
Thursday as one of the witnesses was
not present. After hearing the evidence
His   Worship   said   to   the   prisoner:-
"You have not seen fit to take advantage of the good advice I gave you
the first time you appeared on this
same charge and were dismissed, and the
evidence now shows that you have not
been obeying the law and your actions
are not those of a good citizen. Under
the circumstances I will commit you to
jail and the length of your term will be
five months with the usual labor."

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

HOW THE FIGHT
WAS REPORTED
UP-TO-DATE  METHODS OF THE
PRESS ASSOCIATION
Every Important Blow Struck Reported Fifteen Seconds Later to
Coast Newspapers���Most Instantaneous Action Ever Attemoted.
San Francisco, July 4.���How the news
of the great fight was sent will be of interest, as greater pains were taken to
give the result speedily than ever before,
and in fact it was as near being simultaneous as human ingenuity can at present
go. Eyery important blow struck was
reported in San Francisco within fifteen
seconds, and from there wired to coast
cities.
Owing to the limitations of the carrying capacity of telegraph wires three relays or re-sendings were necessary to
reach all points. One of these was made
at San Francisco, where the stuff wa resent to coast papers; another at Denver,
from where all central and southern
points are served, and a third at New
York���from which eastern points were
taken care of. At each of these points
the receiving operator used a visible
typewriter and the sending operator,
seated beside him relayed the incoming
matter word for word as it was received. The task of giving to the country
this description of the fight, a story which
promised to be one of the most widely
read of the decade, was assigned to Max
Balthasar, known in thesporting world
as "The Ringsider," one of the foremost
boxing authorities in the country, and a
man whose opinions have for many
years been the last word in sporting
questions on the Pacific Coast, the home
of the fighting game.
Balthasar had been at the ringside
during practically every important bout
participated in by either Jeffries or
Johnson and had a personal and expert
knowledge of the science and style of
each man, For several weeks he had
been touch with both fighters, has
studied them at their work and during
their relaxations, and the full value
of his knowledge of the men and their
methods will be brought out in his description and analysis of their battle.
Balthasar was assisted in his work
by Tip Wright, also a well known boxing authority.

There was a heavy fog down the Bay
at the time. The Baltic steamer slowly
backed to quarantine with her watertight bulkheads smashed in. The pumps

DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR
Dominion   Will   Support   Winnipeg
Fair as Strongly as City.
Toronto, June 28. ��� Mr. Edward
Martin, ex-president of the Winnipeg
Board of Trade, is in the city conferring with others for the purposo of
securing better freight rates for the
West, both for the farmer and manufacturer.
Mr. Martin, who is a brother of Mr.
Joseph Martin, M. P. for East St. Pan-
eras, states that the city and the trade
organizations have succeeded in collecting $2,500,000 for the big world's
fair to be held there in 1914. Of this
amount the G. T. P. have donated
$500,000, the Canadian Pacific $500,-
000, and the C. N. P. $250,000. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will shortly make a
tour to the West and while in Winnipeg he will, it is understood, inform
the city that the Dominion will give
dollar for dollar to advertise the exhibition as the greatest the world has
ever seen. This will mean that the
government and the city will expend
$50,000,000 between them.
English   Welter   Champion   Beaten.
London, June 28.���Harry Lewis, the
American fighter, defeated Young Josephs of England in the eighth round
at a twenty-round contest before the
National Sporting Club last night. The
fight was for the welterweight championship of England and a purse of
$3000. Lewis led all the way, Joseph's
second throwing up the sponge after
he had taken the count three times.

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 4.���Vancouver and
Spokane played two hard fought games
on Saturday, one in the morning and
one in the afternoon. The local players
won both, and in the Sunday game they
again won, thus giving Vancouver two
games  ahead.
The scores for the two days playing

Ontario's Mineral Output
Toronto, June 28.���The output of
the metalliferous mines and works of
Ontario for the three months ending
March 31st last, according to returns
just issued was $6,309,171. Of this
aggregate silver counted for $3,041,-
158, nickle, $1,131,924, and pig iron
$1,730,396.
Gold Shipped to Mint.
Ottawa, June 28.���The royal mint
yesterday received from the Yukon
11,151 ounces of gold shipped by the
Bank of British North America and
valued at $35,000. The mint is not
yet ready to coin Canadian pieces and
the metal will probably be converted
into British sovereigns.
Grafter   Commits   Suicide
Ottawa, June 28.���A report reached
here this afternoon to the effect that
Frank Gouldthrite, the missing purchasing agent of the printing bureau, who is
wanted on a charge or fraud, committed
suicide by jumping into Lake Erie from
the deck of a steamer plying between
Cleveland and Detroit. The report was
later confirmed by Hon. Chas. Murphy,
Secretary of State.
SHIPMENT   OF   GOLD
Yellow     Metal      From     Northern
British Columbia and Yukon
Vancouver, Jute 28.���Yesterday a
shipment of gold dust arrived at the
Dominion Assay Office on Hastings
street, and today the employees there
were busy refining and testing it. This
shipment is valued at between $75,000
and $100,000, but it is considered quite
small in comparison with the amount
that is expected next month.
During July, when mining operations in the North get into full swing,
the assay office has its hands full, but
at present the season is only commencing. Gold dust comes from every
part of British Columbia and the Yukon.
It is refined and then valued, the depositor receiving a letter of credit
cheque, which is payable in any part
of the Dominion.

SILVER   BOW MINES, LTD., NOW
ORGANIZED TO START WORK
They Will Rush Development on
Their Property This Season���
Surface Showing Very Favorable���
Prospectus Will  Soon   be   Issued.
Silver Bow Mines in the Portland
canal district is attracting some attention at the present time. The company
is only getting its prospectus printed,
but it will be out in a few days. In the
meantime it will do no harm to give some
information of the group of claims owned
by this company. M. M. Stephens
acted as broker for the shareholders
where the company was floated and much
of the success thus far attained was due
to his efforts. The Silver Bow Mines
are situated on Glacier creek and are
among the earliest claims staked in the
Bear river district. They were staked
by J. E. Stark for M. K. Rodgers, an old
and well known mining man. Some fifty
claims were staked at that time and these
are the only ones retained by the owner
because he considered that they were
the most promising. The Silver Bow
Mines Ltd., are now organized with a
capitalization of $1,000,000 divided in
4,000,000 shares. Their head office is
at Vancouver and M. M. Stephens
and Co. are the representatives in
Prince Rupert. The intention of the
company is to rush the development of
the property this season with all possible
speed and to put the mines in the best
of shape. The surface showings are very
favorable and it remains to be seen what
lies beneath the surface, although those
who have visited the claims are confident that much wealth is hidden there.

ANOTHER NEW TOWN
Bitter  Creek a Valuable Tributary
To Prince Rupert.
The town of Bitter Creek, surround-
ded by mining properties, level as a
billiard table���really as ideal a site as
could be desired in any country, hemmed in by towering mountains capped
with eternal snow���will go on the market
early in July, according to H. P. Gibson,
one of the locators. A crew of surveyors
under H. C Black, has about finished
laying out the 85 acres into lots. A
young town has already sprung up with
a general store run by Strain & King,
Mrs. Anderson's restaurant, Albert
Egan's restaurant, two stage lines and
a hotel in course  of   construction.
Prospectors find this new camp a
particular convenience. Previously
they outfitted in Stewart on their long
hike to the glaciers. Now many of them
save a f2 mile tramp by taking the stage
to- Bitter Creek and outfitting there.
The site offers business inducements
which are apparently recognized already
judging by the many people who are
daily going there to inspect the place
before it goes on the market. The completion of the wagon road over Ward's
Pass has enabled the stage to get through
to the new camp.
A city of tents is springing up and the
history of Stewart is being repeated
in a small way. What now is mostly
needed is a postoffice, a petition for
which is in circulation.���Portland Canal
