EARL GREY OUT
FOR SYNDICATE
HUDSON    BAY    LINE     DEPENDS
UPON   HIS   REPORT
Price, Five Cents
A RECORD MADE IN REAL ESTATE DEALS
English Syndicate Ready to Put
Millions Into Railway and Suitable
Ocean Liners If He Proves Route
To Be Feasible.
Ottawa.Aug. 26.���It has become known
here that Earl Gr7y's trip to Hudson
Bay has a big scheme behind it, in
connection with the construction of the
Hudson Bay Railway. In other words,
the Governor-General is the envoy of
a great British syndicate which is
ready to put millions not only into the
building of the railway to Hudson Bay,
but also to undertake the building of
specially designed ships for the north*
em waters, and at the same time provide the harbor terminals necessary.
Earl Grey is fully convinced of the
necessity of opening up the route to
Britain via the Hudson Straits, and
during his recent visit to England,
which may have been taken for the
purpose, talked the matter over with a
number of leading financiers in London, who, it is understood, have agreed
to provide the capital required if his
Excellency is able to prove that the trip
is feasible without any special preparation in advance.
It is felt that with the advertisement
which the route will get if the viceregal trip is a success there will be
no difficulty in floating a company in
London, It is the so t of practical imperialism which appeals to the English
imagination, and it would not be surprising if Lord Grey were to desire to
go down to hfstory as the successor of
dashing Prince Rupert, the first gen*
tleman adventurer to exploit the Hudson Bay route.
To-day Mr. 0. M. Helgerson of the
0. M. Helgerson Co., completed transactions which make Mr. Cliff Ford of
London, England, the owner of $100,000
worth of Prince Rupert's business property. The main purchases were made
on Saturday and make up what is probably the biggest day's business that has
taken place in Prince Rupert real estate
since the big sale in Vancouver fifteen
months ago.
Among the property sold was the
handsome new Helgerson block which
was owned by O. M. Helgerson personally
The consideration for this property was
$134,000 cash. The building is Prince
Rupert's best block and is bringing in a
monthly rental of $815, which, after
paying insurance, taxes and the collection of rents, will net the new owner
the sum of nearly $8,000 annually, or
better than 14 p.c. on the investment.
Mr. Helgerson bought the vacant lots

Property Purchased.

Total   of   Hundred   Thousand.
last September for $17,500. The building
cost nearly $16,000 making the total
cost of the property to him of a little
over $34,000. From this it will be seen
that he receives the substantial profit
of practically $20,000 on this transaction.
O. M. Helgerson came to Prince Rupert
fifteen months ago with $1,200 cash,
and a month later obtained the promise
of a $2,500 loan for ninety days. After
paying all obligations incurred in the
erection of the Helgerson block from the
proceeds of the sale he will be able to
show a balance to his credit of nearly
$40,000 as a clear profit on one and a
quarter year's work in this city.
The corner of Third avenue and Eighth
street was also among the property sold
to Mr. Ford and the price paid was
$20,000. Some other property which will
be announced later, makes up the total
of $100,000.
The purchaser, Mr. Ford, is a large
and successful public works contractor
in London, England, and although he has
large financial interests in Canada and in
South America this is his first visit to
this continent. He is more than pleased
with Prince Rupert and her future
prospects as the investments of his money
would prove. He expects to pay frequent
visits to the city in the future and looks
for the rapid development of this north
west country, and of Prince Rupert in
particular.

CITY   ISSUED   ORDER
For  Morrison  to  Move  off  Second
Avenue and Not the G. T. P.
In Saturday's issue appeared an item
in reference to W. R. Morrison moving
his house off Second avenue to Seventh
avenue. It was stated by Mr. Morrison
to the Optimist reporter that he had
a building permit from the G. T. P.
and yet he was put to the inconvenience
of moving off his property.
It is true that Mr. Morrison got a
permit from the G. T. P. but that was
three years ago and before the survsy
was made. After the survey it was found
that Mr. Morrison's house was on .Second
avenue the property of the city, and it
was the city which issued the order for
him to move as his house was an obstacle
to opening up .Second avenue. The
G. T. P. had nothing whatever to do with
the order and the G. T. P. received no
rent from Mr. Morrison during the
three years he occupied Second avenue
There are several other house owners
in the same positions as Mr. Morrison
and all have to move. They have no
complaint therefore against the G. T. P.
as that company has nothing to do with
the matter.

RAILWAY ASSESSMENT
Aid. Pattullo Emphasises One Feature  of Council's  Interview
With C. M. Hays
In connection with the matter of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company
and their city property assessment,
and with special reference to the council's
interview with Mr. Hays, Aid. Pattullo
at last night's city council meeting
desired to make clear a certain point
which he thought could not be too clearly
stated.
"The point which I specially wish
to bring out" he said "is that at our
interview with Mr. Hays we urged upon
Mr. Hays that if he would submit
his proposition we would submit it
to the people. Mr. Hays said that he had
no proposition to make, and that the
city should rather make a proposition
to him as it was not the'custom of his
company to make any such propositions."
The mayor agreed with A'd. Pattullo
that this was the substance of the matter
in question, and that the point should
be clearly stated.

LOOKS TO WAR
FOR FREEDOM
COREAN   INSURGENT TELLS   OF
CONDITIONS IN  ISLAND
Formerly in Diplomatic Service and
Now an "Insurgent"���Says Strict
Censorship of Press and Mails by
Japan    Has    Caused    Unrest.
New York, Aug., 27���The belief in
Corea is that the United States will
be drawn into war with Japan within
the next five years, according to Dr.
S. H. Kimm, formerly an attache of
the Corean delegation at Washington,
and now the representative in this
country of the Corean "insurgents"
who are waging a guerrilla warfare in
Corea against annexation.
"The patriotic uprising in Corea,"
says Dr. Kimm, in a statement issued from his office here," is kept
alive largely by the conviction that in
the near future Japan will find herself with a more powerful enemy on
her hands, when Corea can regain
her 4243-year-old independence and
throw off the yoke of annexation.
Probably it is not known generally
that Corea is making a bitter struggle
against the Japanese plans of annexation. The true state of affairs is
kept concealed largely by the strict
Japanese censorship over the telegraph and mails. It is impossible to
get a letter from Corea that has not
been opened and duly censored. Wo
are compelled to rely for our advices
on letters carried by members of the
revolutionary party or messages transmitted by runners by word of mouth
to the watchers outside    the frontier.
"As a matter of fact, the twenty
million of Corean people are resting
uneasily under the yoke and it will
take but a spark to set them off into
a war of liberation. We believe that
the spark will be struck when the
United States and Japanese are at
war and that war will come within
the next few years."
NEW BANK MANAGER
Stanley Long to Take Charge of the
British   North   America
Plank   Driveway   Wanted
A petition signed by 29 persons
headed by the representatives of the
Sash and Door factory was prcesented
to the city council last night. The
petitioners requested that a plank I
driveway should be constructed on 8th'
avenue, Section 6 between McBride
street and Hays Circle. The petition
was referred to the Streets, Works and
Property committee.
���WiTTMlitt^m
It will be with pleasure the old timers
from the Klondike now resident here
will read that F. Stanley Long is coming
from the Dawson branch of the Bank
of British North America to take charge
of the one here. To some of them this was
known already. Mr. Stonham, inspeczor
of the bank, came here to open the branch
and this being done he has filled the place
of manager until Mr. Long could arrange
to be here.
Mr. Long has long held the position,
of assistant manager of the Bank of
B. N. A. in Dawson, and that is a concern
the daily business of which at one time
would compare with that of the leading
banks of Vancouver. As a banker Mr.
Long has been andis very popular there.
He is also popular in a social sense and
will be so esteemed in Prince Rupert.
He is an all around athelte and is calculated to put life into those circles, and
he is the possessor of a voice that will
be a welcome addition to the Anglican
choir.
Mr. Long will arrive from Dawson
in about ten days from now.

ROOSEVELT
ON HIS TOUR
MAKING   A   FIGHT   FOR   PURE
GOVERNMENT
Will Break Rank of Old Guard and
Hustle Crook* Out of Hit Own
Party First���Politics, He Says Must
Be Unpolluted.
Buffalo, N. Y., Aug. 25.���"I feel it is
just a little more my duty to hunt
crooks out of public life because they
happen to be in our party," said Col.
Roosevelt to-day, addressing the Ellicott
club here. ' The colonel was guest of
honor at a breakfast given by the club.
Fully 500 persons were present and
cheered when he declared he would keep
up his fight for clean politics.
Roosevelt arrived in an automobile,
and was driven directly to the club,
He began by discussing the need of
preventing pollution of the great lakes,
gradually shifting to politics. He assured the members that he would fight
in the coming New York state Republican convention.
After the breakfast Roosevelt left
for the west.
"Just as we must keep unpolluted
the waters of the great lakes," said
Roosevelt as he neared the end of his
address before the club, "we must
likewise act in the field of moral, public and domestic life. We must see that
things are unpolluted at their source.
I believe in pure government, and in
this belief I do not recognize party distinctions."
Roosevelt is depending on his personal popularity for support in the
Saratoga convention. Before he left
Herkimer he began to irganize his
forces. He telephoned Loeb and Gris-
com, who are conducting his skirmish
for delegates. The colonel was encouraged by the reception he received at
Utica. the home of Vice-President
Sherman.
HAD TO TAKE
OFF HER HAT
BLOW   ADMINISTERED   TO   SUF-
FRAGETTE    MOVEMENT
Woman Lawyer Ordered to Remove
Her Hat When Addressing Court���
Over Hundred Women Lawyers
Practicing   in   New   York.
New York, Aug. 27.���Rather a rude
shock was administered to the suffragettes last week in the Supreme
Court by Justice Goff. In the latter's
rebuke of Mrs. Sophie Meyer, a woman lawyer who appeared before him
wearing her hat, there was an admonition that women who seek to
attain man's level must be judged by
men's standards and comport to the
rules and regulations to which they
subscribe.
When his honor ascended the bench
on the opening of court, Mrs. Meyer,
a trim little woman, overshadowed by
a ponderous Chantecler hat arose and
proceeded   to   address   him.
"Pray, who are you, madam, that
addresses the court," enquired the
somber-looking justice curiously.
"I am an'attorney," replied the
woman in surprise.
"Then you must abide by the rule
governing other lawyers practicing here
and remove your hat," suggested the
jurist stiffly.
A crimson blush suffused the face
of the woman as she proceeded to
obey. There are more than one hundred
women lawyers practicing in the courts
of this city and this is the first instance
of its kind in which it is recorded that
any one of their number had to divest
herelf of her hat while arguing a case.
"It will be one of the saddest days
this nation has ever seen," said a
well-known corporation lawyer who
was present in court during the incident before Justice Goff, "when
women acquire what they conceive to
be their rights before the law.    The

THE RAILWAY ASSESSMENT
The "stand pat" attitude of the city council is not likely to result in much
benefit to the city of Prince Rupert. It has certainly antagonized the Railway
Company at a period of the city's existence when co-operation of the people and the
company is most needed. It is equally certain that the Company will never pay one
and one half per cent on the present assessment. In case of a law suit, which seems
probable, the city may gain temporary victory but it will be an expensive one for
those now doing business in the city. Those who nurse the belief that the Railway
Company cannot hold back the development of the city are deceiving themselves.
The Company can very easily stop development .for the next two years without
materially embarrassing their transcontinental trade but it would be disasterous
to local business. Railway companies have done such things before.
There are several things which the city have to solicit of the Grand Trunk.
Where are we to get a public building site? What about the reservoir? Who owns the
park lands?   Will the city council get these by "standing pat" or by negotiations.
The taxation of railway property within city limits has been a problem which
has worried the best legislators in the country and none of them have as yet placed it
on a par with business or residential property. Right-of-way and yardage has no
speculative value, nor can it be classed with improved property. For some years
it will have no earning power and it is valuable in the mind of the public only because
it is on the waterfront. The warehouse lots and the wharfs only are revenue bearing
and that portion of the property offers an opportunity for a unique system of taxation which could settle present difficulties and make munificent provision for the
future.
A sliding scale of taxes on the gross revenue of the wharfs, increasing the rate
with the increase in revenue is a suggestion with great possibilities. It is the only
equitable plan of taxing the earning power of the property and it would increase the
taxes only as the company's income grows larger. It would have a tendency to keep
down the wharfage rates and thus do away with the fear that the G. T. P. having a
monopoly of the waterfront would hold up the rates. Such a system would need
careful planning. If it could be agreed upon it would at the present time be a very
nominal tax but as the port developed it would give to the city in future years a
tax income that would be the envy of every sea-port city on the coast.
When the late assessor fixed the Grand Trunk assessment he based it on a uniform rate for the whole townsite without any consideration for railway acreage
but without any idea that the company would be charged one and one half per cent
on their railway property assessment. He gave to the council a valuable brief with
which to treat with the company. He understood his work and did a good job for
the city but because of what was probably a little political ill-feeling towards him
the council refused to invite him into any consultation on assessment questions or
to even take advantage of the good weapons he gave to the city.
The council threw the responsibility upon the assessor, but they showed
the acumen on their job as the assessor did on his the city would to-day be treating
with the G. T. P. instead of preparing to fight them.

MODERN APPOINTMENTS
The Rev. J. D. Mul ins, secretary of
the colonial and continental Church
Society, who was a guest of Bishop Du
Vernet was much struck with
the position and prospects of Prince
Rupert.
To the "Optimist" he said "I believe
beyond doubt that Prince Rupert is to
be a second Vancouver and not second
to Vancouver either.
"I am delighted with the unique
planning of the city in advance of construction, and the foresight of the
promoters which prevented squatters
from settling higgledy piggledy over the
townsite to the detriment of the street
system  later  on.
"Do you know" went on Mr. Mullins
"that they have only just instituted in
England a law as to the proper planning
of new parts of towns before building
begins! Of course," he went on with a
twinkle "as there are by this time quite
a number of towns and cities in England
the measure comes just a little late.
"Prince Rupert's trade with the ever
increasing prosperity of the Far east is
assured" went on Mr. Mullins. "Once
your railway is linked up it will be busy
with trade both east and westwards.
There is little fear of your rival's op
position hurting you when you have the
best harbor and the best grade.
"When I return here two years after
the railway opens up I expect���indeed
I am certain to see here a great and
prosperous city on the most beautiful
site situated in some of the world's
most marvellous scenery."
Mr. Mullins went on to explain the
position of the church of England as
pioneer through its missionaries of this
part of the world. "The English church I
missionaries were here first carrying the
gospel to the coast Indians" he said
"and as the white settlers came the
missionaries were able to welcome them
and teach their children and assist in the
organization of their young communities.
The Church Missionary Society and the
Society of which I am secretary work into one another's hands. They are not
officially linked societies, but where the
church missionary society's work comes
to fruition with the advent of civilized
settlements out here, our society takes
up the work and provides for the re-
igious needs ot the growing community
until with sturdy Canadian independence
the community becomes able and willing
to support its own church and pastor."

GROWING VALUE
OF A LICENSE
PERHAPS OF INTEREST TO OUR
LICENSE COMMISSIONERS
Transfer of ��� Toronto Licenae Coating
Five Thousand Bringa Thirty One
Thouaand���Might Regulate Fee
By   Buainesa   Done.
Toronto, August 26.���The License
Commissioners this morning granted
the executors of the Clooney estate
permission to transfer the license of the
liquor store at 928 Bloor street west,
formerly owned by the late Mrs. Kate
Clooney, to her nephew, John J. Ryan.
The price paid for the transfer is $31,000.
Mr. M. J. Ryan, a brother of Mrs.
Clooney, and one of the executors of
her estate, was present, and said that
he owned the liquor store about fifteen years ago. After running the
business for some time he sold it to
his sister, Mrs. Clooney, who was in
charge of the business until her death
about a year ago.
"What did you pay for the license 16
years ago?" Commissioner Lamb asked
Mr. Ryan.
"I paid $5,000 for it then," answered
Mr. Ryan.
"And   now   it   is   worth   $31,000?"
"Yes."
"I don't see why these people by a
monopoly should make $25,000 in fifteen
years without earning it," said Mr.
Lamb. "It is true that legislation was
taken to provide that this unearned
increment should go to the people. It
is true that the increased population
has made the license more valuable, but
the liquor dealers are not responsible
for the increase in population."
"I agree with Mr. Lamb," said Chairman Coatsworth, "but it must be un
derstood that is is not this case alone
that we are referring to, but to the
monopoly of the liquor trade in general." .
"There is another thing that I would
like to mention," Mr. Lamb went on,
"and that is the fact that a hotel with
six bartenders doing s rushing business only pays the same license fee as
one with one bartender, and I think
that a graded scale whould be introduced that would place them all on
ah even footing."
