GIVING TROUBLE
BOAT HOUSES WERE LIVELY YESTERDAY
President Mitchell Makes Addreaa of
Welcome, Pointing Out the Beneficial Results of Good Fellowehip.-
Muiical Features Excellent.
Although the weather last evening
was so inclement, many accepted the
invitation of the Mens Bible Class
ud attended a social gathering held in
St. Andrew's Church Hall
The program was opened by the president of the class, Mr. W. H. Mitchell, in
i happy speech. With a vein of Irish
tit he described his difficulty in preparing
his remarks, but, needless to say, the
effort did not appear laborious. After
ipeaking of the objects of the class as an
organization he rem nded those present
of the beneficial results of good fellowship.
The absence of Bishop Du Vernet was
mentioned by the chairman, and his
indefatigable labors as the Diocesan of
North British Columbia.
Miss Ward, Miss Ellette and Miss
Froude kindly acted as pianists.
The opening selection by Miss Ward
Has greatly appreciated and received
the hearty encore it deserved. The others
contributing to the musical part of the
program were: Mrs. Archer, Miss Bark-
tr, Miss Craig, Mr. Clark, Mr. Mellior
ud Rev. W. G. James. . 1
[ Each nunmber was heartily applauded
md several encores received.
Mr. J. G. Weston gave an amusing
imitation of several members of the
barnyard fraternity. The different animals imitated were readily recognized,,
and aroused considerable merriment and*
applause
Mr S. M. Newton being called upon
willingly responded in a well-chosen
and apt speech. The Rev. T. C. Des
Bowers referred to his first public appearance in the East by the reciting of
the "Maple Leaf Forever."
Refreshments were then passed around
Md the evening ended by the singing of
the National Anthem.
The next evening being prepared by
the class is a popular lecture.

The sharp squall which swept the city
yesterday afternoon happening as it
did just when the tide was highest, has
caused a good deal of inconvenience to
boat owners along the water front. The
Rover boat house, owing to the fact
that the tide was high, got swinging too
dose inshore and as the tide ebbed got
perched on the rock ledge along the
railway grade, and remained there this
morning with a tilt to seaward.
Mr. Robinson was on board the float
at the time it grounded, and had the
machinery, etc., secured. It was not
possible to haul off the float at the
time it grounded as a tug was not
available. At the next tide at midnight
the Rover launch was in attendance
but Mr. Robinson thought it advisable
to wait for this afternoon's tide which
gave a foot more water, and his men in
attendance at 2 p.m. to haul the float
off. The building was slightly strained
but will not require any extensive
repairing.
The Davis boat house being attached
to piles driven into the sea bed did not
drift in shore when the squall was at
its height and this morning occupied
its usual position. , Several small boats
were thrown ashore and some were
damaged. No serious damage to gasoline
launched is reported.
A. Swanson's float drifted in shore a
bit also during the squall, and boats
there had to be looked after, but no
serious damage was done. The Chieftain met the squall beyond The Slough
and made heavy weather of it but
reported no mishap.
A scow of lumber in tow of the tug
Edith for the Westholme Lumber company broke ^adrift during the squall,
and was not recovered by this morning.
Some citizens this morning were saying
yesterday's little breeze was the "worst
ever." If this is so then there isn't a
great deal to worry about, is there?
Insurance for Aviators
New York, Oct. 17.���Through Lloyds
of London, the management of the
international aviation meet which will
open at Belmont Park next Saturday
has arranged . for $600,000 insurance
against the possibility of spectators

some newspaper and magazine articles
on the Canadian West, and some interesting and optimistic reading wil
doubtless be the result. One of Miss
Saunders*' most popular books was
"Beautiful Joe," being the story of a
dog. Oyer half a million copies of it
have be��jn sold. At her home in Halifax
Miss Saunders has a household of
animal nets and many beautiful birds.
She is a great lover of animals and so
thoroughly does she understand the
beauties,,-/instincts and affection of her
pets that her books on animals have
been translated into several foreign
languages.

MISS SAUNDERS HERE
Talented Literary Lady Hare Gathering Information of the West
Miss Marshall Saunders of Halifax,
Nova Scotia, a lady whose animal
stories have won her much fame in the
literary world, is a visitor in Prince
Rupert today together with her brother
who is a bank manager in Moose Jaw,
Sask. Mr. Marshall has been doing
philanthropic work in connection with
the associated Boards of Trade. Miss
Saunders is   picking up local color for
Judge Young presided over the county
court this morning when a number of
cases came up for consideration. Of
these that of Rex vs. Morrison has been
allowed to stand over by consent as a
witness is out of town whose affidavit
is to be obtained. The case of Rex vs.
Astoria has been adjourned till the next
sittings as a witness is absent from the
country. The case of Panvini vs.
Christainsen & Brandt has been settled
mutualiy/.'
The appeal case of. Rex vs. Rosang
came up for hearing, Alex. Manson for
the crown. L. Patmore for the .appellant. The hearing for this morning
was taken up with arguments between
Messrs. Manson and Patmore over the
question of whether or not the appellant
had just cause of appeal.
Mr. Manson agreed that the sole
object of the appeal was to enable Mr.
Patmore to bring in witnesses who had
not been produced at the trial of the
case before Magistrate McMullin, and
declared that, according to his reading
of the authorities on the subject this
was inadmissable after counsel had
closed his case - as Mr. Patmore had
done.
Mr. Patmore insisted that he was
entirely within his rights in producing
these new witnesses. He said that the
case had been decided on the evidence
of a man who admitted he was drunk,
against that of a perfectly sober woman,
and further called the court's attention
to the fact that the court was entitled
to admit fresh witnesses at discretion
in appeal cases according to legal
enactment. "Otherwise," he said, "what
would be the use of the clause relating
to the new witness, and what would be
the sense in calling a fresh trial in cases
of appeal?"
Mr. Manson said the court should be
very careful indeed about admitting
fresh witnesses after counsel had distinctly said his case was closed.
The question of the correct serving
of notices of appeal to the Magistrates
and others concerned was also argued
minutely, and Judge Young gave the
whole matter careful consideration.
Alex. Manson held his ground firmly
on all points wherein he differed from L.
Patmore and Mr. Patmore waxed hot
in argument ending by saying to Mr.
Manson: "The city is not here to
burke justice as you will find."
The. case of Rex. vs. Rosang has been
adjourned until Monday owing to the
legal points in dispute about it, and
after Judge Young had retired Messrs.
Manson and Patmore were still actively
arguing.
Under the head of enquiries at last
night's city council meeting Aid. Hilditch introduced a subject which came
in for a good deal of discussion at a
former meeting of the council, but
which has not been mentioned of late,
namely, the question of S. H. Watson's
contract for grading the section of
Second avenue beyond the junction,
and the proposal that he should be
approached regarding transferring his
work to a section of Third avenue
grading instead.
"I met Mr. Watson the other day,"
said Aid. Hilditch, "and in conversation
about this proposal discovered that
Watson understands that the matter is
all off. He aaid he had heard that the
council considered it unnecessary now
to change the contracts and did not
want it done. I asked him whom he
had heard say this, but he would not
state any name."
With this conversation in view Aid.
Hilditch asked if the council had gone
any further into this matter of changing
the contracts and negotiating with
Watson on the subject.
Aid. Pattullo understood that Watson
was to tender for a Third avenue section
anyway, but Aid. Lynch said he believed
this was not so.
Aid. Pattullo then suggested that if
Watson were not to offer for Third
avenue grading he might still be transferred from the far out part of second
avenue to a section of First avenue
where important buildings were going
up.
The Mayor explained that he was
satisfied that things were going as he
had predicted at first, that all. the money
necessary for all the grading proposed in
Section One would be forthcoming, and
that he did not therefore think it advisable to start up a new First avenue
contract meanwhile when it would
probably come up quite shortly in course.
The transfer would probably only resolve itself eventually into their having
to put Watson back on to finish Second
avenue. The only thing the Mayor
thought might be advisable still was to
stop the work on Watson's contract
at its present stage, and ascertain what
remuneration the contractor required
for the work already done.
Aid. Barrow said that two avenues
plugged up with grading contracts
was enough at a time considering the
traffic.
After a little more general discussion
on the subject Aid. Pattullo remarked
that he thought by the time the council
had got through debating the question
the job would be completed.
At which there was a smile all round
and the matter was allowed to drop for
the time being.
Seattle, Oct. 15.���Messrs. Charles F.
Munday, George Simmonds and Cornelius Christopher, all prominent Seattle men were arrested here late today
on indictments returned by the Tacoma
grand jury charging conspiracy to
defraud the government in the Alaska
coal cases. The accused were taken
before the United States commissioner
by whom they were released under bonds
of $2,500 each.
Warrants have also been issued for
the arrest of Mr. Algernon H. Stacey,
an Englishman, whose whereabouts are
unknown, but who is believed to be in
Alaska, and Messrs. Archie W. Shields
and Earl S. Sigley. Mr. Sigley was
private secretary to Mr. M. J.. Henry,
the contractor who was building the
Copper River and Northwestern railway
in Alaska for the Guggenheim company.
The accused men are charged with
having conspired to defraud the government by fictitious entries in what
are known as the Christopher group
of seventy-four claims and the English
group of eighty two claims. Both
groups are situated in the Behring river
district, near the famous Cunningham
claims.
It is charged that the alleged conspirators contrived to defraud the government out of coal lands valued at
$200,000,000.
Munday, who is a prominent Seattle
attorney, and Stacey and Shields are
implicated in. the English group. Christopher and Simmonds are in the Christopher group. Simmonds is a prominent
Seattle lawyer and Christopher, a veteran of the civil war, is president of the
mining company.
It is declared that the action taken
by the government today is but the
beginning of general proceedings against
alleged fraudulent claimants in nearly
all of the numerous groups of coal
claims in Alaska.

TELEPHONE MAN BURNED
Accident to Employee on Sixth Street
This Afternoon
About three o'clock this afternoon
while two of the workmen employed in
making telephone wire connections on
the pole line on Sixth street were aloft
in the slung stage with some paraffin
wax melting in a pot beside them.for
insulation purposes, the -paraffin took
five and blazing up burned one of the
men pretty severely on the hand. He
made a hurried descent from the stage
by means of a rope and some excitement
was caused among the passeres-by by
the incident. It is understood that
the man's injuries are not serious
enough to keep him off the work or to
necessitate the services of a doctor, but
had he not acted promptly the flareup
of the paraffin might have done more
harm.

Seward, Alaska, Oct. 16.���The famoue
volcano Bogoslov, in the Aleutian Islands, is in more violent eruption than
ever before according to a report brought
from the West by the revenue cutter
Tahoma, which has arrived here. Smoke
and ashes are rising a mile and a half
above the crater, according to triangu-
lations made by the Tahoma's officers.
Flames are bursting from the cone,
lava is flowing down the sides, and
huge boulders are being thrown high
into the air. A lake in the center of
one of the Bogoslov islands is boiling,
and dense clouds of steam rise from the
caldron.
The island was formerly a rendezvous for thousands of sea birds, all
of which probably have' been killed.
Not a live bird was visible from the
Tahoma, but great numbers of dead
ones floated in the sea. The Tahoma
anchored ten miles from the volcano,
not daring to approach nearer, the
cutter's decks being covered with hot
ashes even where she lay. The officers spent a whole day in viewing
the magnificent spectacle of the troubled
mountain, and in making photographs.
While bound to Attu island early
in September the Tahoma's officers
noted recent and remarkable changes
in the topography of the Bogoslov
group, a new island having lifted its
head where deep water- formerly had
been, and other islands haying diminished
A party of volunteers asked to be
permitted to land on the islands and
make observations until the cutter's
southward trip in October, but Chief
Engineer Bryan, who knows the freaks
of Bogoslov, warned them of their
terrible undertaking, and the proposed
expedition was abandoned. If the
explorers had remained on the islands
they must have perished, for when the
Tahoma returned the chief peak was
ablaze, and the other islands in commotion.
imposed or duties recovered from the
firm or its members, the informant will be
in line for the reward given by the government for evidence resulting in such
conviction.
"If the alleged frauds prove extensive, as the customs officials have stated, this reward will probably be between
$100,000 and $500,000."
MISSING BENEFACTOR
Broker  Who  Promised   Thirty   Per
Cent Without Possible Loss
Despatches state that Mr. Sheldon, a
peculiar kind of Montreal stock broker,
has gonu away, leaving many sorrowful
people who had placed money in his
hands. Mr. Sheldon obtained a great reputation by promising that people who
made investments through his office
would make thirty or forty per cent, per
month and never lose anything. He
charged no commissions but paid himself by retaining one quarter of the profits. Not only did he promise them large
profits but he paid them. All the newspapers, and all the financial people
warned the public that he must be a
deceiver since no one could make such
profits honestly, but there was not a
single one of his customers who was
not satisfied. One man accepted the
challenge so far as to ask Sheldon's
clients to write to him. Twenty or
thirty did so and not one of them had
been disappointed in his returns from
Mr. Sheldon's office. The Montreal Star
attacked Sheldon, and one of the investors wrote to the Star to say that he
had entrusted many sums of money,
$8,000 in all, to Sheldon. He had received in cash profits $11,000 and still
had $7,000 at his credit.
That was a week ago. Now the despatches say that Sheldon is gone, and
all the money he had on deposit has
gone also. But the man who got eleven
thousand for eight need not complain.

in charge of Mr. J. D. .Craig of Ottawa,
working north of the Yukon river,
succeeded in delimiting the international boundary line along the 141st
meridian ot a point within one hundred
miles of the Arctic ocean. The remainder
of the work will be completed next year.
Work was started this season forty
miles north of the Yukon and owing to
the favorable character of the country
190 miles of the boundary was covered.
Sixty miles of this distance was marked
by monuments. The season's work
was not characterized by any noteworthy
experience. Members of the party state
that they did not see the big mountain
reported by Mr. Riggs, the American
representative, as surpassing Mount
McKinley in height.

note sent to Mr. William Loeb, Jr., collector of the port of New York, precipitated the sensational raid yesterday on
the Fifth avenue establishemnt of Duveen Brothers, art dealers, and the arrest of two members of the firm, Benjamin J. and Henry J. Duveen, charged
with conspiracy to defraud the government of more than $1,000,000 by under
valuation of imports.

London, Otf. 16.���A wine famine
faces the world, and the lover of the
lighter French and German wines will
have to pay considerably more for
them within the next week or so. There
is always great anxiety at this period
as to the vintage of France and Germany.
Of those of Portugal and Spain the
vintages are generally pretty sure, but
in the case of the more northerly countries
there is always considerable doubt as to
whether the grapes will ripen.
Last year, for example, even so late
in the season, it was believed and said
that there would be no Bordeaux
wines, but by something like a miracle
in the last fortnight of September
there was a period of "brilliant sun
shine and warmth, the grapes, about
which there had been so much anxiety,
ripened, and some very high-class wines
that are now making good prices were
produced.
The Germans were cute enough to
secure the bulk of this vintage, offering such inflated prices that the English wine merchats were beaten out
of the field. This year, however, German cuteness and enterprise will be of
no avail.    There are no grapes to ripen.
As reports received recently from
the wine fields have indicated, the incessant rains and cold winds have
spread disease among the grapes, weakened as the vines have been by a succession of bad summers, and nearly
the entire crop is ruined. The position
is as bad as this: From the Bordeaux
country we shall have less than half
the usual supply of clarets, as the
wines here produced can be broadly
described; from lower Burgundy there
will be practically none at all; of the
famous Chablis, beloved of the oyster
epicure, there is only about 100 hogsheads to supply the whole world. Of
what may be described as the grand,
classical Burgundies, we only have an
eighth of the usual supply.
Some Facta About Portugal
The area of Portugal is 35,400 square
miles, about half the size of Manitoba,
with a population of 5,423,132. In
trade Portugal does not compare with
Canada, the total exports and imports
being less than 100,000,000 milreis, a
milreis being slightly more than a
dollar, while Canada's trade amounts
to $600,000,000. The population is
almost exclusively Roman, there being
only 4491 Protestants and 481 Jews.
Lisbon the capital, has a popluation of
358,000.

THE DAY OF SPECIALISTS
This is the day of the specialist. The time was not many years ago when
a jack-knife carpenter built a home complete; when the physician cured ills and
pulled the family teeth; the storekeeper was probably barber, postmaster and
grocer combined; while the newspaper man had to be a reporter, printer, pressman,
politician and the sympathetic recipient of all men's woes. Yesterday one man
tried to know it all; today each man tries to know one thing better than anyone
else. The result is specialists, and the world is better for it. Today if a man builds
a house he employs a dozen different kinds of artizans; there is a different doctor
for every kind of disease, the only added privilege being that of pulling the patinet's
leg; merchants carry only one line of foods or have specialists in charge of each
department; while the newspaper shop, which is the pivotal point of this paragraph,
has specialists from the editor's chair to the devil's pay envelope. A modern large
daily has at least twenty departments, the employees in any one of which may
be totally ignorant of the work in any of the others, yet they give better results
and draw more pay than the all-round printer-journalists of yesteryear. Smaller
dailies, like the Optimist and its print shop, have to be more modest in their organization. Yet the Optimist is made up on modern principles and has its staff of specialists. You do not have to visit the shop to see it���a glance at the paper or an
order placed with the job department will do it. In old style printing shops a customer's copy is handed a printer who slaps it through with the imprint of one man's
cleverness, or carelessness, as chance may have it. In the modern shop three or
four experts will be in consultation on your job���even though it be just a bit of
stationery. Maybe a line is changed, maybe it is just the difference of a little
spacing, perhaps a color is altered or the job may be reset, but the finished product
presented the customer contains experience and brains. It may cost a trifle more
but the world today recognizes the value of quality. The successful man is he
who. gets the highest attainment either in that which he produces or that which he
purchases.  That is why the world is producing specialists.
TRUTH IS PROFITABLE
Peeping Sam, the editor who claims to get his inspirations from the ash barrel,
yesterday spread a little more of his ignorance of material things in the hash column
of our four-page contemporary. He purports to announce the private business
matters of the Optimist in giving his views of the late ownership, the present ownership and the future policy of this paper, whereas he is fortunate indeed if he possesses
that information about his own paper. Instead of passing up the ill intent of the
article the Optimist will be magnanimous and offer a gratuitous suggestion gathered
from profitable experience in the business. If the envious editor will discover
himself, whence he came and whither he goeth, and then steer a straight and sane
course he may gain some prestige and profit. In the meantime the Optimist will
continue to publish facts, honest criticism and do the bulk of Prince Rupert's
(advertising and job printing.
SUMMED UP
BY AYLESWORTH
minister of justice on fisheries DECISION
Result of Hague Tribunal a Greatly
Increased Cordality in Relations
Between United States and Canada
���Credit for Canada'* Success.
Ottawa, Oc*. 17.���How greatly Canadian-American relations have increased
in cordiality was manifested here on
Saturday when Hon. A. B. Aylesworth,
Canadian minister of justice, addressed
the Canadian Club on the subject of
the recent fisheries arbitration at The
Hague. Not only did his cordial references to the ability of his Canadian and
British colleagues in the case arouse
enthusiasm, but the audience, which included Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Prime
Minister; Sir Charles Fitzpatrick, chief
justice of Canada, and many other
eminent officials, warmly applauded his
mention of the satisfaction which the
verdict had given to both Canada and
the United States.
Canada's success Mr. Aylesworth attributed first to the excellence of the
Canadian case and to the thoroughness if its preparation. For this he
gives primary credit to Mr. John S.
Ewart, K. C., who went to London
before the abritration began and devoted his time exclusively to the caBe.
He paid also a high tribute to Sir William Robson and Sir Robert Findley,
designated as counsel by the British
Government to outline the various
points of the cose.    He paid a com
pliment to the consummate ability of the
American counsel in arguing the American claim to immunity from local
regulations in fisheries.
The result of the case he declared
could not fail to strengthen the feeling of devotion of Canada to the motherland.
Sir Charles Fitzpatrick, who sat as
one of the judges in the case, declared
that if the verdict was satisfactory
it was certa nly in a large measure due
to the aid given the court by counsel
on both sides. He paid an especially
high tribute to the personality of his
colleague on the bench in the cose,
Judge George Gray of Delaware.

that he might be able to attend to his

that he is still suffering a little and
feeling below par, Mr. Woods will keep
within doors until perhaps Friday. He
has been working today preparing
matters for the city council meeting
tonight at which his assistant, Mr.
McMaster will take his place. In the
meantime Mr. Woods is anxious to be
back at his post as soon as possible
as the work is accumulating considerably
in his enforced absence.

INSURANCE OF WORKERS
On City Grading Contracts.   Proposal By Large Insurance Firm
The city solicitors in a letter to the
council read last night called the attention of the Mayor and aldermen to a
proposal by a large insurance firm through
the Mack Realty and Insurance company of this city. The proposal is to
the effect that the city should arrange
for the insurance of the employees
engaged in - the forthcoming grading
operations under the Employers' Liability Act, by a large general scheme
instead of having each contractor insure his own set of men. The present
system is one of individual contractors,
and the new proposal is stated by
those putting it forward to be considerably more satisfactory as it would
work automatically and become effective
immediately each contract is signed.
The policy would be based upon the
amount of wages paid out to the workers
as the various contracts were put in
hand.
The proposal was referred to the
Streets, Works and Property committee
for consideration and report, Aid. Hilditch wanting to be Bure, however, that
it would come up for discussion in council
later.
CITY SEWER SYSTEM
Preliminary Consideration of Matter
By Streets Committee
The question of the city sewerage
system is still pending discussion by
the city council. After a little informal
mention of the matter and a reference
to the proposal that the Streets, Works
and Property committee should report
on the matter, Aid. Lynch said that they
would need to hear*, the city engineer's
views of the matter before bringing in
a report from the Streets committee. He
also remarked that it was largely a
matter of the financing of the work.
The Mayor agreed that it was so to
a certain extent, but there were other
considerations as well, and Aid. Pattullo mentioned that the method of
undertaking the work would also need
to be considered.
The Mayor thought the matter had
better be left to the Streets, Works
and Property committee in the first
case to bring in a report on the question
after consultation with the city engineer,
and this proposal was agreed to.

Should Conserve Oxygen
Scientists express the opinion that
the world's supply of oxygen is rapidly
diminishing. This is shown, points out
the Province, by the fact that the early
aeronauts could ascend to a zone unattainable by their modern confreres
because of a lack of oxygen. Thia
brings up the ^question of the conservation of oxygen. In order not to
exhaust the supply deep breathing
should be restricted, and campaign
spielers and platform. orators limited
to a given number of cubic feet. Extravagant inhalation should be penalized
and the oxygen consumer instructed to
breathe only when absolutely necessary.
SECOND MONTHLY BALL
Kaien Island Club's Great Function
Ia Tomorrow Evening  .
HIGHEST TIDE ON RECORD
At Prince Rupert's Wharf Yesterday
Afternoon
What makes all the dressmakers and
ladies' furnishing stores so busy just
now is the great preparation being made
for the second of the monthly dances to
be given by the Kaien Island club. The
last was an enjoyable affair in every
way, but that was a first attempt on
the part of the club, the building was
new, and so was the whole machinery
for entertaining. Many suggested improvements have since been made of a
minor character and tomorrow night's
function is to be a big stride toward
perfection.
Gray's orchestra has been engaged and
an innovation has been made to the
music in the addition of the snare drum,
calculated not only to better mark the
time but to add vivacity to the movement.
PORT MANN BOOMING
Martin O'Reilly Finds That Conservative   Victoria   Is   Waking   Up
Martin O'Reilly, the merchant tailor,
returned yesterday from a business
trip to. Vancouv ., Victoria and Seattle.
In the latter city he saw no signs of the
great depression of which so much has
been read in the newspapers. He found
that business was fairly good in the
Sound city.
Por); Mann, he said, was attracting
great attention. He believed this was
only the. beginning of a great boom
at that point that would for a time put
Vancouver real estate speculation in
the shade. He also found an unprecedented liveliness in Victoria, and
thinks the time is coming when the
capital city will have a boom that will
be heard of.
Vancouver Editors Squabble
Vancouver, Oct. 15.���Mayor Taylor,
proprietor of the Daily World, has
instituted a writ to be issued for $50,-
000 damages against W. C. Nichol, proprietor of the Daily Province. The
action is brought because of an alleged
libelous statement in the editorial columns of the latter publication in which
a charge of graft is intimated against
the plaintiff.
City Clerk Was Absent
City Clerk Woods' indisposition prevented him from occupying his usual
place at the Mayor's right hand at the
council table last night. Mr. Woods'
assistant and stenographer, Mr. J.

the evening very efficiently.

Petitions to Council
A petition from the Westholme Lumber company for permission to construct
dry masonry walls at a point on Second
avenue was presented to the city council
last night, and referred to the Streets,
Works and Property committeje for

for permission to construct a plankway
at his own expense, and his petition
was also referred to the Streets committee.

PORTLAND CANAL STOCKS.
Yesterday's was a record breaking tide,
and coming as it did in the height of a
nasty squall of wind the rise of the
water caused quite a little excitement
at the wharves and warehouses on the
waterfront.
The workers and officials at Messrs.
Foley, Welch & Stewart's warehouses
were really wondering when the phenomenal rise of the sea was going to
stop. There were moments, some say,
when the whole place seemed likely to
float off its base. The buildings seemed
at times to rock as if already afloat
when the wind swooped down on them.
The tide register gives 26 feet 24
inches for yesterday's maximum water
level. The day before was 25 feet, and
today's tide stands at 26 feet at high
water so that today's tide is also a big
one. As there is not such a breeze
today the occasion is not so marked.

Prince Rupert Contractor Now Under
Trial at Vancouver
A. S. Levine, a contractor, from
Prince Rupert, came up for speedy trial
before Judge Mclnnes in Vancouver
on a charge of false pretences.
It was alleged that he had obtained
$1800 from the Stewart Merchantile
ompany of the town of that name, by
representing that he was the owner of
certain horses and other property,
which it is now alleged that he does not

In the course of the proceedings it
was found that an essential witness as
to the ownership of the horses was
now in Fernie, and at the request of
Mr. McKay, the crown contractor, the
further hearing was adjourned till October 22 in order that the witness might
be brought here. Mr. D. Donaghy, who
appeared for Levine, sbjected strongly,
as his client had been bailed out for
$2000 by citizens of Prince Rupert, and
as. the bail would not hold good here
it would mean that Levine would have
to go to goal for a week.
Judge Mclnnes agreed that if bail for
the same amount could be secured here
he would be glad to recognize it. The
bail was afterwards secured.

RAILWAY EXTENSION
Government Not Likely to Submit
New Propositions
Notice already given is indicative that
one of the principal features of the railway legislation of the new session will
be the bill for the enlargement. and extension of the powers of the Portland
Canal Short Line railway, to permit of
the carrying forward of the larger
schemes of its proprietors, looking to an
extension from Portland Canal by way
of the upper Naas, the Omineca, and
Pine river pass, to a connection with
other lines at Edmonton, this new line
opening up extensive areas of agricultural land, wide tracts of timber, and
new coal measures reputed to be equal
to those of Crow's Nest pass. It is improbable, however, that any extensive
proposals for the assistance of new railways by bond guarantees or otherwise
will be submitted at the present juncture
by the government.

Walter Wellman, the Attempter
It will be interesting to read what
the Seattle Times has i;o say of this
latest attempt of Walter Wellman, as
of the last attempt before this to keep
in the limelight, that of flying from
Spitsbergen to the Notrh Pole and back,
that newspaper spoke out so plainly
that Wellman attempted an action for
iibel claiming a large amount of damages.
Even that attempt was a failure, as
was the one of crossing the Atlantic
he attempted this week.
Certainly one has the right to question whether Mr. Wellman is entirely
in earnest in his surprising undertakings;
earnest, that is, in the possibility of
carrying them out. For two seasons
he had a large balloon at Spitzbergen
and he did not do it. The first time the
season was too far advanced; the
second season the balloon came down
after a short flight and was badly
damaged.
The attempt the other day seems to
have deserved to fail just as that did.
From all accounts there were many
features of his machine that had never
been tested. The machine was designed
by Mr. Vanniman, and it embodied
several new devices and would seem to
have been a most foolhardy thing to
attempt to cross the Atlantic without
even a test of these new devices. Well-
man can never make good as long as he
neglects ordinary precautions.

FOR DYNAMITE
TRYING TO LOCATE WOMAN IN
CONSPIRACY
Story of Plot to Blow up Los Angela*
Time* and Part Mysterious Woman
Seem* to Have Played in the Matter
���The Mutual Friend.
��an Francisco, Cal., Oct. 16.���Seeking
a mysterious woman believed to have
been the mutual friend of the so-called
J. B. Bryce and the "squint-eyed man"
called Morris, suspected of the destruction of the Los Angeles Times plant by
dynamite, detectives are making a systematic search of San Francisco. They
believe they'are close to the possession
of facts that will lead to the arrest of
the dynamiters.
Information was furnished by Mrs.
E. R. Ingersoll, who told the police
that Bryce was brought to her home at
3656 Twentieth street, two weeks before
the Times explosion, by a woman acquaintance. Bryce engaged a room and
shortly was joined by the "squint-
eyed" man. One day she overheard
them talking of dynamite, of possible
police interference and of Los Angeles.
Shortly before the night of the Times
explosion, Bryce left this city, but
Norris remained.
Mrs. Ingersoll declared that she feared
for her life and did not summon up
courage to tell the police until now.
She denied yesterday that she had
told the police and said that the tale
had been concocted by newspaper men.
Detective Burns admitted yesterday
afternoon that the woman's story of
the plot was true and that she had
been instructed to deny until the detectives could take advantage of her information without being hampered by
amateur sleuths.
The woman who brought Bryce to
the Ingersoll home is being sought. She
undoubtedly will lead to the men wanted,
provided Mrs. Ingersoll's suspicions are
correct.
It was learned that J. B. Bryce occupied a room at Mrs. Ingersoll's from
September 4 to September 14. He was
visited by a man giving the name of
William Morris, who was also known
as Terry" and "Smithy." They claim
to have been printers in Chicago. In
the course of these visits Mrs. Ingersoll learned of the alleged plot. Bryce
appeared to be the man in charge and
received messages daily by telephone
rom men and women. Some of these
'messages were overheard by Mrs. Ingersoll and are said to have related to
the purchase and shipment of dynamite at the Giant plant.
Mrs. Ingersoll is believed to have
given the detectives clues regarding the
method of transporting the explosive
to Los Ange es, also regarding the preparation of bombs. She is said to have
directed the officers to a warehouse
where the men's effects were stored.
Mrs. Ingersoll's description of the
men and their acquaintances tally accurately.

THE ALDERMAN
GOT HIS DUCK
VERNOR W. SMITH RETURNED
FROM VACATION
Says Port Mann Is Booming���Had
Offer for His Property There but
Declined It���Glad to Hear Helgerson Made Successful Plunge. -
Alderman Vemor W. Smith returned
on the Prince Rupert yesterday from
his three week's vacation, and was at
his desk in the office of Foley, Welch &
Stewart this morning. He chatted about
his trip but harked back the conversation
continually to "the ranch." This means
his ranch near Camrose, on the Poke-
hasset branch of the Canadian Pacific.
He had not seen it for two years, and said
with the enthusiasm of a boy that he
found everything looking fine. Crops
were good, stock healthy and multiplying, and wild duck and prairie chicken
plentiful. The ideal of his vacation was
to have some duck shooting, and this
he enjoyed to his fill.
He was glad to get away from his
desk routine and council worries, he
said, and try to forget Prince Rupert for
a brief spell. But it was brought back
to him even in his home town. He went
with a party to Miquelon Lake, fourteen
miles north of Camrose, which is one
of the best shooting lakes in Alberta. It
is a great resort for the Edmonton and
Alberta sportsmen. In his party was
the mayor and two councillors of the
city of Camrose.. That town is wrestling
with the putting in of electric kight and
with a sewerage system just as is Prince
Rupert, so that in the evenings, at the
fine clubhouse they have at the lake,
the conversation naturally turned to
those municipal problems once in a
way. The mayor had a gasoline launch
on the lake, so that this part of the trip
was altogether enjoyable.
Returing to the coast he found Vancouver very lively. Mrs. Smith met
him there and after doing some shopping
they went over to Seattle. They found
Seattle quiet by comparison with Vancouver, but without any great signs of
depression.
"When we returned we made a trip
to P rt Mann," said Mr. Smith, "and
certainly things are coming there at a
great rate. I was glad to hear my
friend Olgy Helgerson got in there. I
was very glad to learn that he took a
plunge and believe he will clean up a
lot of money.
"No, I did not speculate, for the
reason that I had some property there
already. While Mrs. Smith and I were
in Vancouver we were made a good
offer���an offer of {1000 an acre for what
we paid $260 an acre a few"months ago.
But we did not sell. They have let a
contract for cleaning up the townsite
of Port Mann, a thousand acres, and
things are looking very bright there."
DEMAND FOR DWELLINGS
In Prince Rupert Is on the Increase
States  H.  F.  McRae Company
H. F. McRae & Co., real estate agents,
have recently had a large number Of calls
of inquiry regarding houses for rent, and
have rented a number of houses to
clients coming to settle in the city from
the North and East. They find the
demand for good class dwelling houses
a steady and increasing one.
The same firm disposed the other
day of a couple of lots on Beach Place
which realized a couple of thousand
dollars, and are having a number of
enquiries.
H. F. McRae has been absent this
week on a visit to the Lakelse district
with a party by gasoline launch. He is
expected to return on  Monday.    On
Wednesday evening Mr. McRae is
announced to deliver an address on
"The New Thought" to the Presbyterian
Church -Young Men's Club.

Henry Vivian,  M.   P.,  Says  People
Live in "Hideous Jumble"
London, Oct. 17.���Herny Vivian,
M. P., who has been addressing town-
planning meetings in Canada, writing
on the need of action in Montreal,
says that the population of that town
grows 30,000 to 40,000 a year. These
persons dump themselves down practically as they like and the result is
a hideous jumble. Mr. Vivian does
not think there is anything quite so
bad in England as the worst districts
of Montreal.
