THE MARKET PUCE SITE
CITIZENS    SEND    PETITION    RE
NEW CITY HALL.
| Water Pipe Tenders Opened and
Referred To Water Committee
and Fire Committee���Procedure
By-Law Given Second Reading.
A movement is on foot now to get the
city hall located on Market place instead of on Fulton Street where it was
proposed to erect the temporary quarters.
A petition was received from Westenhaver Brothers, and others, asking the
council to consider as a site of a
city hall the property known as
block 15, at Market place on Second
avenue.
Aid. Pattullo stated that he had been
spoken to in reference to the above
petition and that the Board of Trade
had chosen the site mentioned. He
moved that the petition be referred to
the proper committee. Personally he
thought that, for the building it was
proposed to erect now, the site on
Fulton street was preferable for the
present. For a permanent site the one
chosen by the petition might be well
considered.
The property committee is to report
on the site, and Mr. Westenhaver
will be asked to attend the council and
1 express his views.
A letter was received from D. H.Morrison applying for position of building
inspector.
Water Pipe Tenders.
Aid. Lynch presented a batch of
tenders for supplying six inch water
pipe which had been received by the
water committee. The tenders were
from:
Peck, Moore & Co.
The Prince Rupert Hardware &
Supply  Co.
The Municipal Construction Co.
The   Pacific   Coast   Pipe   Co., Ltd.
J Y. Rochester.
Moved by Aid. Pattullo and Aid.
Smith that the tenders be referred to
the Fire and Water committee -carried.
By-law No. 1 being a by-law providing
'or the procedure of the counci) was read
a second time and the council went into
committee of the whole of the whole and
discussed ihe by-law clause by clause.
The aldermen worked away until eleven

TEDDY PUTS FOOT IN IT.
ROOSEVELT REPEATS HIS CAIRO
SPEECH AT MANSON HOUSE.
Leading Newspapers Charge him with
Violating Diplomatic Properties
and Says His Strictures on Egypt
���re   Muddled   and   Trivial.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, June 1.���Colonel Roosevelt,
in his speech at the Mansion House
banquet, repeated portions of the inflammatory speech he delivered to the
students of Cairo respecting the British
occupation of Egypt. It is generally held
that his remarks upon such a subject
were in even worse taste in London than
they were in Cairo, and most of the leading metropolitans are vigorous in their
criticism of them. They declare thatas a
guest of the city he violated diplomatic
proprieties,and one of the journals calls
his utterances upon the subject muddle
and unworthy from even a schoolboy.
English officialdom refuses to com,
ment upon it.
Roosevelt sails from here for home on
Monday, June 13th, and the papers are
full of the great preparations that are
being made to meet the popular hero
a fitting reception in the harbor of New
York,. Many steamers have been chartered from this country, carrying freight
but timed to arrive at New York so as
to be available as excursion steamers during the Roosevelt reception. It is
from the other side that the Republican
Club of New York and the United
war veterans are among the organizations which have chartered steamboats
to meet the Victoria, on which Roosevelt
will return to America, at the quarantine station, to accompany the dis-
tinguished American into port.
The African Big Game Club has offered to take part and arrangements
are being made to have Republican
delegations from every assembly district of New York march in the parade.
Roosevelt will leave the Victoria and
ride to the battery in a revenue cutter, surrounded by hundreds of pleasure
crafts. Mayor Gaynor will receive him
and from the battery the procession
will move up Broadway to Fifth avenue, thence to Fifty-ninth street,
where it will disband.

KITSELAS IMPROVEMENTS
COMMITTEES CONFER WITH GOVERNMENT   AGENT.
Will Put In A Good Drainage Ditch
And Employ Balance Of Govern-
Ment Appropriation In Graveling The Streets.
The Executive Committee of the
Kitselas Prospector's association, met
Wednesday evening with Superintendent
Clarke and talked over with him the
government work to be done this summer,
together with the executive committe
of the Commercial club.
The meeting was called to order by
the president of the club, C. W. D.
Clifford, who briefly stated that the
objects of the meeting were that the
committee could be informed by Mr.
Clarke of the amount the Provincial
Government had voted for public work
in Kitselas this summer and how the
amount would be expended.
Superintendent Clarke informed the
committee that the sum he had asked for Kitselas was $1,000, but that this
amount had been cut down to $800,
which amount was now available for
improing the streets, drainage, etc., in
the town. He requested that the Club
recommend a member to have general
supervision of the work, that the Club
should recommend what work was to
be done and when the work should
commence, adding that so far as the
Department was concerned, it could
commence at once.
The Committee recommended that
the first work of importance was the
running of a good drainage ditch which,
commencing at the east end of Cascade
avenue, running west along Cascade
avenue ro the line of the Indian reserve,
and then along the line of the reserve
to the Skeena, would drain the lots in
blocks 3 and 4 that now collect more or
less water from the springs along
the hill back of the townsite. Any
money remaining after the drainage
ditch is finished can be used in gravelling the streets of Kitselas so far as the
money will go. The committee requested that the Club's president, Mr.
Clifford, be appointed to have general
supervision of the work.
Mr. Clarke stated that, in his opinion,
the committee could not have made a
wiser choice, and authorized MA) Clifford to start the work at once.

Bids were also received from station
men for excavation of trenches by sections, but no bids came in for the most
difficult sections, and as the prices on the

STEAMER   FOR   IDITAROD.
Capable of Sailing Over Sandbars on
Light  Dew.
Seattle, May 26.���In expectation of
a rush of prospectors this summer into
the Iditarod country, J. O. Johnson,
of this city, a well known Alaskan,
is completing the construction of a light-
draft, flat-bottomed boat to haul freight
up the river. The craft was first planned
by William T. Fee, known as "Missouri
Bill," for the purpose of prospecting
on the upper waters of the Kuskokwin.
Fee abandoned his plans because of
severe illness.
The boat is building on the water
front near the San Juan Fish company's
dock. Though forty two feet long and
of seven feet beam, it will draw only
eight inches light and about fifteen
inches loaded. In Mr. Johnson's words,
all he will require to get around over the
sandy bars of the river will be "a light
dew."

Some   Of   The   Boys   Who   Struck
Pay   in   New   Diggings.
G. Nichols, who is among the last
out from the new Iditarod goldfields,
gave this information to his Fairbanks
friends:
"There are nine creeks on which good
pay is found. The best streak is on Flat
creek, which has pay gravel 16 feet
thick and gives pannings from 2 to 25
cents tot he pan. Gill Bates on Otter
creek, claims to have obtained pans
running from two to three hundred
dollars to the pan, twenty dollar pans
being of common occurence.
The creeks on which pay is found in
the Iditarod proper are Otter, Slate,
Boulder, Flat, Willow, Quartz and Rosy.
Several old time Alaskans have made
good in this district. Jack Mailery,
Bill Connors and Fred Humphrey
have acquired a lay on Flat creek
which is paying good. J. Bolton has a
claim above discovery for which he has
refused twenty thousand dollars for
a one half interest. Jim Chronister
and Bob Martin have struck it rich on
Otter, having a lay on discovery on that
creek."

EVENING NEWSPAPERS.
TMr   Importance   Empha.ized   At
London Press Banquet.
The Press Club held their annual
inner at the Criterion restaurant,
tendon, recently, with Mr. Herbert
Jewell presiding, Judge Parry who
the principal guest, proposed the
toast of the club. Noticing that the club's
tome was in Wine Office court, he commented humorously on the connection
between the prdss and wine, remarking
that a wine merchant's catalogue
ontained many of the epithets which
were peculiarly attributable to the press.
They would see the light, the dry, the
reliable and the tawny. It was not for
him to teach them how to allude to the
vagaries of John Jones on foreign shores
without drawing on themselves thousands
of actions for libel.
Speaking generally, he thought that
the British press was a great thing. As
they said in Lancashire, it was "a'reet."
Of course, the press was no place for
new ideas; it was no place for really eloquent writing. The press was a business
thing. It had to be read in railway trains
and anybody who worried would be a
nuisance. Just as now we were getting
from the sun heat and light, which started
lrom the sun many thousand years ago, so
now we were reading in the press the
ideas of men who had departed. But
what about the next generation? They
would have to put up with the ideas of
Bernard Shaw, Chesterton, Harold Cox,
Hall Caine and Leo Maxse. He was
that he would not be there. Another
thing that occurred to him about the modern press was the supreme importance
of the evening newspaper. In the morning paper they were only told the horse
that was going to win: in the evening
paper they were told the horse that had
won���and they were not always the
same.
One hopeful thing about the English
ess was that it was not written by
Englishmen: at least, not largely. Hence
its power. Scottish, Irish and Welsh
predominated and the unfortunate
English were having a bad time,
had a prime minister who was a great
English barrister, instructed by a Welsh
solicitor on behalf of an Irish client.
EXTERMINATION OF RATS.
Board  of  Trade  to Act  With  City
Council.
At the meeting of the board of trade
council Monday night B. G. Stewart,
of the committee on rate extermination,
reported and moved that the board act
conjointly with the city council in the
matter, as, if the work of the two were
combined there was a reasonable hope
of the work being done effectually. They
should also act with the Grand Trunk
and with the railway contractors, and
know what they were doing.
Mr. McMaster said that both the
Grand Trunk and Foley, Welsh &
Stewart were waiting for the board of

"dope." They had five hundred tubes,
but as this would be only about sufficient for one dose on the wharf it had been
deemed advisable to wait until a sufficient quantity was on hand to do the work
thoroughly and effectively.
Other members spoke to a similar
effect and the rat committee was instructed to confer and work with the
proper committee of the city council.

Real  Estate Active.
The sale of Stewart lots has, as predicted by many in the early stages, had
a most wholesome effect upon the real
estate market here. For a mining town
Stewart lots sold too high and there is
little room left for speculation. As a
result there has been this week quite an
improvement in Prince Rupert sales.
Several of the brokers report business
brisk this week and they look for it
to continue so. The second payments
are met, or are being met, and the owners
feel easier. There will be no slump
in prices���that is certain. As a matter
of fact a month from to-day little, if
any, property will be bought at the
figures asked to-day.

LICENSE COMMISSION NEXT WEDNESDAY.
It was a relief to the many applicants
for licenses and the public generally to
learn from the Optimist of yesterday that
the license commission would hold its
first session under the municipal government on Wednesday next, as it was feared legislative tape would pospone this
event until September. There are a
comparatively large number of applications, and consequently some of the
applicants may suffer from disappointment and envious heartburn at the conclusion of the session. While it is known in
advance that not all the applicants can
possibly be successful, such is human
nature that those left out in the cold are
likely to nourish a special grieveance for a
time. How many of these there are
likely to be cannot now be forecasted.
Much will of course depend upon the
number of licenses the commission
decides the city ought to have in the
first place, and in the second the number
of applications even considered will
probably be limited to those who have
complied with thc legal requirements
as to advertising. Those who took time
by the forelock and advertised long in
advance will now have cause to hug themselves upon their perspicacity in the
premises.
The commission has to decide not
only the number of licenses to be issued
for the whole city and set the limit,
but the conditions under which they shall
be issued, whether the principle of high
license or low license is to be adopted,
and the regulations to be set as a net to
catch the unwary feet of the lucky
licensee. Vancouver was having its
annual struggle with the licensing question last week, and some of the points
raised in discussion before that commission may be matters of information to
those of Prince Rupert directly interstcd
in the whole subject. Not that there is
any purpose in this to seek to influence
public opinion or the commission one way
or the other upon the subject. Vancouver j
conditions form no basis of comparison j
with those of our bran new city, yet what I
isdoneor attempted there possesess a
certain relevancy in our consideration of j
the same subject in its general aspects.
To begin with, the number of hotel
licenses to be granted in Vancouver is
limited to seventy-five up to a population of 100,000, and thereafter only one
additional license may be granted to
each   additional   10,000   of   population.
It must be remembered that the licenses
. are issued for a year, and as it is a pretty
. safe deduction that this city will number double   present population by this
��� time next year, our commission will no
. doubt   make  its  first  allotment  on  a
liberal scale that jjje rapidly-increasing
requirements of the city may be kept
pace with. The revision of the Vancouver
license by-laws demanded that all hotel
premises for which a license was sought
must have one hundred guest rooms.
But the commissioners found this was
setting the standard too high, and cut
down the necessary guest rooms to fifty.
The commission seems to have suffered
��� great perplexity in the granting of licenses to sell liquor to restaurants, and
also as to hotel guests being Supplied with
j drink with their meals. In regard to the
: first named it was decided that the din-
j ing room must be clear of all partitions,
and that liquors should be served to
j diners only in sealed bottles, the seals
I of which must be broken at the tables.
"This," observed a commissioner,
: "does away with cocktail at restaurants."
| The cocktail is generally regarded,
| met singly and not in battalions, as
j gentle and harmless; perhaps that particular commissioner had once been
| bitten by one, and hence his feeling
! against it. The board seems to have been
i equally hard on hotels that maintain
; dining rooms, particularly as to the morn-
| ing dram and the cold bottle at dimner
so particularly soothing and cheering to
the wayfarer on the Sabbath of all days.
Vancouver grants its Bonifaces a license
"to be drunk on the premises, and makes
it a condition of such license that he shall
provide "refreshment for man and beast,"
probably inserted to embrace all the
different kinds of drinkers���and yet
they now talk of charging him an extra
license for the room in which he provides such refreshment, or two licenses
for his hotel, one for sleeping and one for
eating. Also for the drinks served in the
diningroom on a Sunday, but upon the
latter point the perplexed commissioners
seem inclined to take a cut-off, in order
to get around it, by arbitrarily declaring
that no drinks whatever shall be served
on Sundays anywhere. The sales of
liquor in drug stores was also discussed,
but this and many other points over
which those Vancouver commissioners
fumed and worried, have no relative
bearing upon the licenses to be granted
here.

TAXATION   IN   ALASKA.
Major   Richardson    Wants    M
To  Build   More   Roads.
loney
Major Richardson, head of the road
commission for Alaska, was in this city
Saturday on his way north to begin his
duties. The major has been in Washington for some time and while there made
the following suggestions to Congress
for changes in the tax laws of Alaska.
"The liquor license, trade and occupation tax in Alaska has yielded about
$110,000 a year to the wagon and trail
portion of the Alaska fund. I recommend
that this tax law be amended to include
dredges, telephone and telegraph lines,
and some smaller lines of business which
OTre apparently overlooked, but for
vihich there seems to exist no special
reason for exemption. It is further recommended that a flat tax be placed on
non canneries, in addition to the present tax of 4 cents a case exemption from
whhich tax is now obtained through the
distribution of fry from hatcheries;
also that a tax of five dollars per annum
he placed upon all quartz and placer
claims not patented, and a small tax
upon each ton of copper and coal mined
in the territory."
In addition to these he suggests that
the mining laws be amended so that every
claim owner can pay, at option, the $100
assessment money into the road fund.
He purposes further that each local
district be made to take care of and build
its own roads, under the direction of his
road commission and that the money
raised from taxing the various sources
mentioned be applied to trunk lines.

Douglas Sutherland Tires of Working
For Big Salary.
Douglas Sutherland, agent of the
Canadian Pacific at this port, has grown
weary of working for even so liberal a
corporation and is determined to be a
man of himself. "I thought the time
had come when I should go into business
for myself," he said this morning, "and
as an opportunity presented itself, I
sent my resignation to the company,
to take effect July 1st."
Mr. Sutherland- has been with the
big railway and steamship company
for seventeen years, although he does not
look it. The 1 atter part of this time he has
been employed as advance agent and
organizer, and nearly two years ago was
sent to Prince Rupert to develop the
situation as freight and passenger man.
He was the first agent sent here by the
company and has represented it in
practically all lines. He was to do so until
the company deemed it desirable to
establish a regular agency here.
His partner in the business about
to be established is E. J. Maynard,
who is an expert machinist of wide
experience already in business here.
He was in business for himself at Nome
for some time, and master mechanic for
the Elmar mining company of Elmar,
Alaska. The new firm will act as manufacturers agent and carry a stock of
gasoline engines, motors, mining supplies, sheet iron, heavy hardware, roofing paper and so on. They will be
pioneers in their line and are already
assured of a large business.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the 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 lohger a
chanty, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty 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
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over

THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
WORK ON PORTLAND MINE.
Tramway From Tunnel Nearly Completed���Compressor  Ordred.
W. J. Elmendorf, manager of the Portland Canal mining company, who has
the reputation of being able to see
further into a piece of solid rock than
most other mining experts, came in
from Stewart on the May and returned
to the mine last night on the Vadso. As
he was stepping on the boat he spoke
very optimistically both of the property
he is opening up and of the growth of
the town of Stewart. In the course of
his brief chat he said:
"At the Portland mine we are making
fine progress in every way. Our tramway
is very nearly completed and the concentration mill will probably be running
by the 1st August. Meantime the development work is progressing rapidly and
we have everything ready for the installation of a compressor which has been
ordered. We are now employing about
thirty-five men and are expecting a
very active and properous season.
"In my report to the company recently I stated that the No. 2 tunnel inwhich
we are working shows in the face eighteen
inches of solid sulphides and some native
silver. We are also cross cutting No. 3
to the westward in order to define the
limit of mineralizarion in that
direction.
"The important thing is the completion of the tramways. We shall reach
that in a few days and then we shall be
able to get in the pile of machinery
and timbers that are now waiting. The
terminals and towers of the tramway
were completed before I left, the cable
was stretched and there is very little
more to be done before we shall be
running.
"I need not state that Stewart is
going forward by leaps and bounds.
The greatest need now is a dock and
we expect that it will be put in shortly
by the railway company.
