SOI HOT POLITICAL TALK
Campaign Meeting Last Night waa the
Biggest and Warmest Yet-Empresi
Theatre Packed to Capacity.
Frank Mobley's public meeting in
the Empress theatre last night was the
biggest, so far, in this campaign. The
place was jammed to such an extent
that there was not even standing room
in the entrances or on the stairs.. The
meeting was also marked by the appearance for the first time at a public meeting of   Mr.    G, R.   Naden,   one   of
the aldermanic  candidates on  Stork's
ticket. He endeavoured to show that a
clique, or some interests in the city,
were endeavouring to defeat him. To
do this he staled that his bookkeeper
had been offered $100 to discover and
report something detrimental to his���
Naden's���character. He read an affidavit made by his bookkeeper for the
purpose of proving his statements. The
affidavit implicated an employee of the
Optimist and it gave out the impression
that the Optimist, or those supported
by this paper, had inspired the move.
So far as the rest of the meeting was
concerned, it passed off very quietly,
and the speeches were largely a re-hash
ol those made at previous meetings.
The best of feeling prevailed in the
audience, although some of the Stork
candidates got overheated and made
statements they would not make in
their calmer moments.
Thomas Dunn the chairman opened
the meeting and  asked  the  audience
to give every speaker a fair hearing.
Mr. F. H. Mohley   was  the   first
speaker. His principal object of appearing before the meeting was to explain
the action he intended to pursue if
elected to the council. First, he said
the platform was prepared by a lot of
business men, and they did not make
any promises it would be impossible to
carry out. Their platform was a business one. As to the liquor question, he
said he was not a temperance man. He
lavourod a high license and a complete
control of the licenses. As to taxation,
, favour<'d a minimum tax, whether it
?e a *"*' or a double tax. We must
nave money. We start off with with
an indebtedness of $85,000 and we must
nave sowers and waterworks. We must
n"ve an efficient fire department that
���"���De capable of fighting any fire that
';;>��� occur. The city must also retain
Ml control of all public utilities.    We
might grant franchises, but we must
control them. He also favoured permanent work in everything undertaken.tem-
porary work is money wasted.
In reference to the ticket on which
he was running, he said they did not
claim to have all the best men in the
district. They had eight good and
honest men. He would help the labouring
men in every way he could.
He had been a labouring man for many
years and he would help them. Mr.
Mobley then appealed for the support
of the electors.
George \V. Morrow was warmly
received. He regretted that, his musical
education   had   been   neglected  or   he

THIS PAPER IS CLEAN.
Naden Exonerates The Optimist His
Political Affidavit Denied by Todd's
Sworn Declaration.
At last night's political meeting,
G. R. Naden, one of the candidates on
the Stork ticket, produced an affidavit,
a copy of which is given btlow. The
inference which is conveyed to some
persons is that the Optimist was in
some way responsible. This morning
Mr. Naden said:
"I do not wish to implicate the Optimist in the charge, nor do I believe
the Optimist is in any way responsible
for it. The Optimist was mentioned
merely to identify the location of the
man."
The Optimist desires to state further
that its employees are all union men.
The printers are hired by the foreman,
who is much too busy a man to take
either an active or passive interest in
municipal politics.. Although employees
they are quite independent of the office
influence or interests.
Furthermore, the Optimist herewith
states that no director or shareholder
of the company, had any knowledge,
directly or indirectly of any such transaction, or any desire to secure any knowledge about Mr. Naden, or his affairs.
The Optimist believes that the public
will give the men connected with this
paper, credit for having better sense
than to send an emmisary to a boy who
is only a late importation to this country
to get information about a man who has
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
SOME  WARM  REBUTTAL
Editor Optimist :
Sir,- The great Stork Rally on
Saturday night was a most amusing
affair. It must have been that these
people have a poor cause, as they seem
to be afraid to invite Mr. Manson and
his supporters to be present at their
meetings. It is a poor cause that won't
stand criticism.
Whatever may be said of the Stork
outfit, they have two great qualifi-
! cations. They can make more noise and
j they are the champion mudslingers of
I Western Canada. Not satisfied with
; their usual mudslinging tactics, nor with
the maniacal ravings of the Empire,
I they have secured the services of two
1 men who are not on their ticket but who
| are proving able lieutenants in their
I campaign of abuse, slander and vi-
j tuperation.
One is Mr. Pattullo, the great patriot
of the Yukon. This gentleman was
assistant gold commissioner of the
Yukon in the palmiest days of Grit
corruption, blackmail and looting of
mining claims in that country, but in
this city he has developed into a spasmodic champion of the people.
Mr. Pattullo was one of the committee
that went to Victoria over the charter
question, and the transitory glory of
being thus temporarily in the lime light
coupled with an uncontrollable ambition to be mayor himself, has quite
turned his head.
A few weeks ago he was saying that
he did not favour Stork and his ticket.
We now find him to be one of their most
ardent champions. It is difficult to
find out how the Stork bunch are going
to make room for Mr. Pattullo, unless
the rumour is true that they are going
to drop Mr. Hilditch or "get rid of the
walloper" to use the words of Mr.
Pattullo himself about another individual.
Their other lieutenant is also rendering good service. Thomas Dunn has
always been a great moral force in this
country. A man of lily-white and unimpeachable character and actuated
by the loftiest and the most unflinching political ideals. His presence will
very likely carry great weight with the
electorate of this city.
Such a patriot and such a moralist
as these two gents are known to be,
should point out to us very clearly
the kind of Government that Stork and
company would give us.
The best indication of the future
administration is to be found in the
character of campaign that is being
carried on. If you want strife, rancor ,
and a general carrying out of the wide
open town idea, why Stork and his
crowd seem to be about what is wanted.
I do not mean to intimate that
Mr. Pattullo had any hand personally
in the Yukon corruption. I do not
believe he did, but if he would still
support a government that was responsible for that administration, why
is he so horrified at Mr. Manson's
loyalty to the McBride Government.

SEVEN REASONS
WHY    MANSON    SHOULD    BE
ELECTED.
BECAUSE he has a better knowledge of
Prince Rupert's civic affairs
than anyone else.
BECAUSE his honesty and integity is
above reproach.
BECAUSE he thoroughly understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing municipal work.
BECAUSE financiers to whom Prince Rupert must go for heavy loans
demand a big, clean man who
has had experience in handling public funds.
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organizing the
civic administration.
BECAUSE he has the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
BECAUSE his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no
room for juggling.
Flower of British Army Bordered Procession from Buckingham Palace to
Westminster Abbey.
London, May 17, -The removal of
the body of King Edward from Bucking-
I ham Palace, where it has lain in state,
i to Westminster Hall, where it may be
viewed by the gentry of England to-day
resembled a glittering dress rehearsal
for the great funeral pageant that will
be held on Friday. Numbers fail to
give an idea of the vast throngs that
lined the streets for the funeral procession, of the great swarms of humanity that clustered in the windows of
houses along the route and the thousands
that filled precarious perches, on house
tops, street posts and every ledge and
arch that gave a footing.
Eleven thousand picked troops, the
flower of the English army, formed an
impressive border for the funeral cortege as it passed along.. The course was
only a mile in length, but apparently
the greater part of London's population
had gathered to view the spectacle.
The catafalque covered with black
and purple draperies, surmounted by
the crown and sceptre of England,
and surrounded by draped English flags,
was started from the Palace at 11.30
o'clock and arrived at Westminster hall
at noon..
As   the   gun   carriage   bearing   the
coffin moved slowly along, a yeomanry
company   of  soldiers   presented   arms,
while   the   colours   slowly   dipped   in
| silent salute.   No sound was heard from
; the crowded streets, except the rumble
' of the heavy gun carriage wheels, the
clatter of horse's hoofs and the light
i noise  of  carriages  bearing  the   Royal
Family of England and the heads of
the British government..
Alexandra of Denmark, the Queen
Mother, widow of King Edward, rode
| in the first carriage, accompanied by
her mother and the Dowager Empress
of Russia. King George V and members
of the Royal Household followed.
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, Commissioner of the United States, was not
in the procession to-day. Neither were
; any of the nine visiting Kings of Europe.
Roosevelt and the visiting monarchs
will appear in the final funeral procession
on Friday.
When the coffin arrived at Westminster, the Archbishop of Canterbury,
assisted by Canon Wilberforce, held
| a short service. In the course of the
service the combined Westminster Royal Chapel choir impressively sang several anthems.
At one o'clock the services had ended.
The body lay in state from one to four
when it was viewed by those invited
by members of parliament. After 4
o'clock the public was admitted and
thousands took advantage to file by the
coffin.
An ordinary Stork can stand on one
leg, but "Alfy" can stand on the shreds
of a torn ticket.
"He is one of us" warbled the gang
last night, led by a piano player from
the demi-monde.
The mysterious late of the little blue
bills will befall some of the spot light
men in a few days.
"Doc" says it was a narrow escape,
but it was the only close call that will
be coming to him.
Stork is bumping the Chink laundry
and using election signs that look like
an oriental wash check.
Gill says he does not need to go to
the public meetings. He can see the
hot air coming out through the ventilators.
It is only natural that the "nursing
bottle brigade" should want a plumber
in charge to keep the feed pipe in good
running order.
For the leader of a "White Prince
; Rupert"   ticket,   Stork   seems   to   be
I uncommonly    familiar   with   the   few
"cull'ed  gents"  in  town.
If Stork did control the licenses as
I he would like to, would they be peddled
around like the positions on the aldermanic "ticket" or would they be given
to his political friends?
According to evidence produced in
the Theatre last evening, Stork has a
sliding scale of wages���from 25c. to
40e. per hour. Most people have to pay
50c. for unskilled labor.
Stork with his newspaper and his
I boosters have been spending a lot of
time and energy berating local men
whom everyone know, and whose conduct everyone can judge for themselves.
If this same time and energy were
given to reporting the recent holiday
trip Candidate Stork made south, it
might explain the presence here of
the several professional politicians and
strangers who are in the Stork camp.

PASSENGER LIST
Vancouver, May 16,���"Our coastwise service will be inaugurated about
June 12. The Prince Rupert, now en
route from England will be joined here
a few weeks later by the Prince George,
thus providing a semi-weekly service
between Prince Rupert, Vancouver,
Victoria and Seattle," said Mr. E. J.
Chamberlin, general manager of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.
"The C. P. R., has agreed to take
care of our boats temporarily in Vancouver, if we do not make other arrangements. Good progress is being made
with the building of our dock at Seattle
When I left there the warehouse was
about to be framed. In Victoria a
small pier will be available to give us
temporary   accomodation.
"False creek seems the logical
place for all passenger train traffic
to be centralized, but of course this
is not an absolute necessity."
"No   date   has   yet   been   fixed   for
placing  on  the  market  our townsites
in  the  interior  of  British   Columbia.
At  Fort  George  we  have  acquired  a!
townsite of 1500 acres.    It adjoins the j

CANADIAN   NORTHERN
The route of the Canadian Northern
Railway from Yellowhead Pass to the
Pacific Coast has now been entirely
located by the company's surveyors.
The last link in this important work
was completed recently by Mr. Garnet
Hughes, a Canadian Northern surveyor,
who has been working west from Edmonton to Yellowhead, joining his survey
with that of Mr. C. F. Hannington's
party, which has been working between
Tete Jaune Cache and Yellowhead, the
latter distance being placed at fifty
miles. According to the survey of
Mr. Hughes, the distance between
Edmonton and the Yellowhead is 200
miles. Mr. Hughes and his party are
now travelling back to Edmonton,
while Hannington s party has returned
to the Coast. It will be remembered I
this party went in by way of Kamloops,
and extreme hardships were encount-
ered on the way. During the trip the
entire number were threatened several
times with death by starvation.
Every one of the 44 pack animals taken
out died before Tete Jaune Cache was j
reached and the party footed it back.
Supplies had been cached en route on
the way out, but the expectant surveyors found that store after store has been
broken open by thieving Indians who
had taken [nearly all the supplies,
At one time the party accomplished a
peculiarly difficult journey of !)() miles
with only bannocks, and this limited in
amount. c.F. Hannington, continuing)
said Ihe route surveyed from Kamloops
to the Yellowhead Pass shows a grade'
of six-tenths, of one per cent, against
westbound, trafl'is and five-tenths of
one 'per cent, against westbound. This j
is the best grade reported for any trans-
continental railway. From Kamloops I
the route goes 180 miles along the North
Thompson to Albreda river. Along this
stream it goes to the lake forming its
source. Then the line crosses the low
summit down the valley of Summit
creek, crossing Canoe river and following the valley of McLennan creek to
Tete Jaune Cache.
From this point the line runs along
the banks of the upper Fraser and the
country is described as a natural gateway to the prairies of the width of 600
feet. There will be no need of tunnels
en route. Hannington says the survey
for the first 30 miles from Kamloops haB
not yet been finally adopted, as a new
survey along the other side of the
Thompson is being run.

THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for tlie stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a '"uty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the

THE LIQUOR LICENSES.
"A vote for Stork means a vote to control our licenses." Such is a sentence
on some campaign posters issued by the ticket. It is a plain bid for the liquor and
hotel men's vote, and a lot of people may be led lo vote for Stork under the impression that he would control the licenses if he happens to be elected mayor.
The impression is wrong and promises made on the strength of it cannot be carried
out. As a matter of fact, the control of the licenses rests with the provincial government, and William Manson, as member for the district, is the man whose opinion
rules the situation.. Clause 182 of the Municipal Clauses Act shows how the license board is appointed. The Mayor is chairman and the government appoints
the other two, one being taken from the council. Naturally, under our system of
representation, the nomination of these commissioners comes to Mr. Manson,
who has promised a plebiscite on the question, and who is the only man who can
deliver his promises.     Stork cannot control the licenses, even if elected.
|
Candidate Stork, through his organ, has been trying to create a lot of cheap
sympathy by intimating that he could not procure a copy of the voters list and
that he was at a disadvantage in his canvass. Mr. Stork knows, or ought to know,
that the Act provides for the entering of all names in a book, which book is open to
the public. The printed voters list, which the returning officer ordered, was issued
yesterday, and no copies were put out before yesterday morning. Every candidate got them, or could have them, at the same time. If Mr. Stork wanted information before that time he could have taken it from the book, just as others did, instead of making a play to the gallery.

As for the truth of the alleged charge
the Optimist knows nothing. It is a personal affair between Mr. Naden and
Mr. Todd.
Connon'e Affidavit.
. Alexander A Connon, of the city
of Prince Rupert, in the province of
British Columbia, bookkeeper do solemnly declare,
'l. That I am a bookkeeper and secretary to George R. Naden,
2, That on or about the 4th day of
May, A. D., 1910, while eating lunch
in the Calumet restaurant at mid-day,
1 was spoken to by one, a Mr. Todd, a
printer who at that time was working
in the office of the Optimist newspaper,
in Prince   Rupert,   to   the   following
efiect, namely,-     He  said,  "There  is
opposition from a certain quarter'here
to Mr. Naden in this municipal election,
and they would  give  considerable  to
see him defeated, and if you can get
me any information  of a detrimental
kind to Mr. Naden, it would be worth
one hundred dollars to you.
3. The above were not the exact words
but to the best of my memory they convey the exact meaning which his words
left on my mind.
Todd's Affidavit
The above affidavit is false in every
particular.
1. I have only eaten in the Calumet
three times, once with President Poole
and Messrs. Beard and Griffin, of
Prince Rupert Typographical Union.
2. I was approached by one Connors
in the Clairmont house, where I first |
met him,  about my support to Naden. I
1 told him 1 was not taking any part, j
i except on the union   label   question, I
I and told him il Mr. Naden would support the labour planks, I would do a.U
I could to help him.
���'i. In discussing the merits of the
Typographical Union, Connors said
that he had an uncle in Aberdeen, Scotland, who was a union man, and he asked
me if I could get him work. I told him
if his uncle came out here he could
get work; in fact, I promised him to
give him my position on the Optimist
He wrote his uncle to that effect last
week and allowed me to look over the
letter before he posted it.. I have never
discussed politics in any way whatever
wth Mr. Connor unless it has been in
the presence of witnesses..
1 am prepared to prove that the
above is a  true  statement   of   fact.

Back From Stewart.
V. F. G. Gamble, of S. Harrison &
Co., returned from Stewart Sunday
where he has been for the past
couple of weeks, establishing a branch
office. The office is now completed
and is opened, doing business. Mr.
Gamble is enthusiastic over the prospects
at Stewart and states that everything
is booming. There are now some 1,500
people in the town and surrounding
hills and more are going in on every
boat. All these people have to get their
supplies from Prince Rupert and as a
result the trade between these two towns
is growing rapidly.
A chamber of mines has recently been
organized with Robert Stewart as president and some of the prominent men
assosiated with him are Engineer Elem-
dorff and Engineer Vaughan-Rhys. All
the big companies have been communicated with and requested to become

Slew a Bear.
H. P. Rutter, late of Victoria, and
at present of Fort George, so the Indians say, is a strong man and worthy
to be a great chief.    The natives now
pass  him   with   an   air  of   reverence
akin  to     the  sacred   whenever   they
cross his trail.    And all because of an
encounter with a big black bear.   Rutter is a transitman with Gore & McGregor's survey party on the Salmon
River,   where  the  bears  grow  as  big
as horses.       The action of the frontier  drama was  very  early  morning,
and the weapon a surveyor's handaxe.
Rutter was in advance of a party of
six   men   when  he   stumbled    into a
bear pit.      He retreated as quickly as
a man could in such a predicament,
and turned to the left of a tree.   The
bear, frightened out of his home, popped
out from his hibernating quarters, made
a detour of the same tree and came
up  face  to  face   with  his  disturber.
The meeting was pathetic, says Rutter,
and   savored   of   the    rediculous,  as
the bear stood up, occasionally rubbing
his eyes as though not fully awakened,
and less than six feet away.  Retreat
for  Rutter  was  out  of  the   question
with his snowshoes embedded and bush
t
partly surrounding him. The bear came
on.    Rutter cletched his axe and the
battle was on.   Fencing with paw and
axe continued for at least ten minutes,
when man and bear went down in one
huge ball. When the others of the party
came  up  they  found  Rutter  in  the
embrace of the bear, gasping for breath,
but the bear was dead.  A post mortem
examination revealed that a blow on
the temple from Rutter's axe had ended
the contest.

Vancouver, May 17,-Two Italian
labourers, B. Constantina and SIbsI
Perrera, employed on the city sewer
works, got into an altercation yesterday afternoon. They climbed out of
the trench. Constantina stabbed Perrera and Perrera then stillettoed Constantina in the back of the neck with a
downward blow. The long blade penetrated his vitals and he died a few moments later. The other Italians took
up a subscription on the spot with
what money they had in their pockets,
and gave it to Perrera and told him to run
He ran to the shack of a friend at Grand-
view, a mile and a half away, which,
considering that he was stabbed through
both lungs was remarkable. There the
police found him in a dying condition.
Surgeon says he has no hope for recovery. ^	
The tug Escort No. 2 which is to do

supplies across the rapids. When that
work is completed both boats will

L. Morrow & Co, THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
SOME HOT POLITICAL TALK
CONTINUED  FROM  TAGE  1.
would sing. However, he would try to
say a few things about himself that
a newspaper, Mr. Dunn and others had
neglected to say���cheers. He had been
asked to go on the ticket, but it was
impossible to do so at that time. But
later, his good friend Mr. Lynch, had
come after him and said that they required brains and ability���cheers���so I
he decided that he had better come out.
Then Mr. Morrow thanked Mr. Dunn
for all the advertising he had given him.
Mr, Dunn called him a somersaulter
Still, Mr. Dunn, so he saw in a dream,
had planned that he was the very man
for mayor of this city. But all of a sudden Mr. Dunn discovered that he was
too busy. Mr. Morrow also thanked
T. D. Pattullo for his kind remarks.
But Mr. Pattullo was also, at one time, I
a prospective candidate. He also somer- j
saulted.
Then Mr. Morrow asked what Mr.
Stork had done in Fernie for the public
ownership of public utilities. The tele-1'
phone, electric light and water wo
were owned by a company. Mr. Stork
admitted the truth of that fact. Mr.
Stork had not put up much of a light,
if any, for public ownership, although
he was mayor. The speaker also referred to a number of planks in Mr.
Manson's platform.
W. P. Lynch was called next and he
made a short  and impressive  speech.
He admitted that he asked G. W. Morrow to run  for  alderman  because he
bad ability and he wanted to have that I
ability in the council. But he would say
why he did not want him elected. Mr,
Stork was in the field for mayor, and '
he had associated with him eight men j
who  possessed  brains and ability  and'
he would like to see all of those elected.    1
William Manson, the people's candi- j
date for mayor was the next speaker and
he was given a rousing reception.   He i
said it was hard to always have something new at every meeting, but he had
a bill in his hand gotten out by the
Stork faction which furnished him with
a text for his address.  He read the bill
clause by clause and explained it.    In
the first place it was a sample of yellow
journalism and he pointed out how utter- j
ly foolish it was.   He also took up the
Tsimpsean Power company matter and
clearly pointed out that the provincial
government   was   in   sympathy   wuth j
was in sympathyin Prince Rupert and
had  protected  us.
G. R. Naden was the next speaker.
He was glad to see the ladies present.
He had fought to the last to give the
ladies a vote.. The ladies' vote is
always good and he would be very much
disappointed if every one of the ladies
d d not vote for him. In theory
he was a single tax man but theory
does not always work out well in
practise. The only system was a
minimum taxation on improvements.
That was the only sure way of keeping
up the price of buildings, and it will
also keep the city from having too
many buildings..
Mr. Naden stated that a young man
working in his office had been approach
ed by a certain party to f nd out something to the detriment of himself, Naden,
and if that information was forthcoming the young man would be richer
to the extent of $100. Interests in the
city wanted to defeat him. He had an
affidavit made, and he read it to the
meeting. The affidavit will be found n
another column of this issue.
J. H. Hildritch the labour candidate
followed Mr. Naden and in opening he
stated that while he was on the Stork
ticket, he did not agree with Mr. Naden's
8 hour policy. He said if Mr. Naden was
an eight hour man he should have proven himself such by voting for Mr.
Morrow's and Mr. Manson's motion
at the hospital board. This late hour was
no time to declare for an '8 hour day,
in order to catch the labour vote.
Further, Mr. Hilditch stated that he
was the one who had asked Mr. Morrow
to introduce the 8 hour motion and
have it applied on the hospital superstructure, stating that it would be
doing the carpenters a good turn.
Mr. Morrow was perfectly willing and
glad to do so. Mr. Morrow said that the
hospital was a public institution and
the city should use the labouring man
fairly.
Just as William Manson was concluding his address at the Stork meeting
last night, one or two roughs in the
rear of the hall started creating a disturbance and a tussel ensued which
caused a little sensation in the house.
Mr. Manson, and chairman Dunn, succeeded in quieting the audience and the
the attempt to break up the meeting
was a failure.
When G. R. Naden had finished his
address, and the reading of his bookkeeper's affidavit, G. W. Morrow asked !
permission to say a word or two. He
stated that he was financially interested in the Optimist and he and Mr. j
Naden had always been the closest
friends, and were yet. So far as he was
concerned he knew not a word about
any such move or scheme as was
outlined in the affidavit. Furthermore,
Mr. Naden would be one of the last
men in the city against whon he would
intrigue.. This was positively the first
intimation that he had had.
TWELVE FIRE HYDRANTS.
Fire Committee Are Installing Fire Protection Apparatus.
Piping, lighting and pumping plant!
and a boiler were shipped north Saturday night to Stewart by the Stewart-
Portland Canal Light, Water & Power
Co. They will serve temporarily for
serving the wants of the little town pending the installation of a hydro-electric
plant next year on the Marmot river, j
where a large water right has been se-
cured. Then the company will sell
power to the various mines.
At Stewart, owing to the presence
of glacial mud and other impurities
in the creeks, a water supply will be
secured by sinking wells from which
the water will be pumped to a reservoir and thence distributed by gravity. G. K. Williams, consulting
engineer, went north with the plant
and will direct the installation work.
The reservoir will have a capacity of
30,000 gallons.
The directors are R. M. Stewart,
John Stewart, Harry Howson, Wm.
Noble, George K. Williams, and
S. Garnham.
The Fire Committee, after much
delay, have their gang at work installing a dozen two inch stand pipes
to give fire protection in the business
portion of the city. The delay was
caused in securing the pipe and hydrants
from the manufacturers, but it arrived
a few days ago and the stand-pipes are
now in place. The committee consists
of John Currie, Chief McKellar, G. W.
Morrow and George R. Naden.
The locations of the stand pipes are:���
