(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, Oct. 12.���The railway strike is
rapidly becoming general and a food
famine already threatens this city.
Eight thousand men on the Western
railway have joined the strikers. Forty
thousand employed on the Eastern
railway walked out this morning. Eighty
thousand on the Paris-Lyons-Mediterranean-plan to s rike this evening. The
Orleans employees are momentarily expected to go out and the Central railway
workers have planned to strike tomorrow.
It is thought that by Friday evening
not a wheel will be turning in the country, as the underground and omnibus
systems are also joining the strikers.
The military have been called out to
run trains but very few are moving
today. Clashes between the strikers
and the troops are frequent, as the
strikers are misplacing switches and
cutting telegraph lines. Two serious
wrecks have already occurred that are
ascribed to this came.
Practically the whole force of the
garrison is under arms in the hope of
preventing riots.
The strikers who quit this morning
did so without warning after the service
was in full operation, leaving the trains
stalled. Thousands of tourists are
stranded here and .throughout the country-.
At Grenelle station the strikers attempted to run the locomotives into the
river Seine.
The strikers have ignored the government order to join the reserves, and
if any attempt is made to prosecute
there is sure to be bloodshed.

where they say that it rains in Prince
Rupert 366 days per year. Mr. Lurie
said he was in Vancouver a week and
never saw the sun and never went out
as he did not have a raincoat and
umbrella. He arrived here on the
Prince George on Sunday and he says
he never saw finer weather in his life.
The sun  has  been  bright  and  warm
all the week-. This with the rapid
advance the town has made has aroused
Mr. Lurie's enthusiasm. He says he
never was in a new town that looked
so good to him.

Ia  He  Ironical!
General Superintendent W. C. C.
Mehan of the G. T. P. has written
acknowledging the city council's communication with him over the matter
of the garbage dumping at the wharf.
He says that he is satisfied that the
council "in its usual prompt manner"
will attend to the matter as early as
le.
Hydrants Will B. Placed
The City Engineer reported at last
night's city council meeting that he is
arranging to place the twenty hydrants
which have arrived for fire protection,
at suitable strategic points for use to
the best advantage. The G. T. P. has
allowed two of these hydrants to be
fitted to their 6-inch main on Comox
avenue.
Want 16-Foot Plankway
A  petition  for  a   16-foot  plankway
from   residents  on   Ninth   avenue,   in
Section Five, was received by the city
council last night and referred to the
I Streets committee.
DAMAGE DONE TO STREETS
Who Pays for Repair of Street. Put
in  by Private Enterprise
The damaging of the sidfeT1 walks on
Second avenue due to wagons being
pulled over them has attracted the
attention of Aid. Pattullo who pointed
out that part of the street were constructed by private expense. Of course
if the city intended ' to pay for the
damage done, well and good,   if   not
he had a very strenuous objection to
offer.
The Mayor suggested that the street
be closed to vehicular traffic.
Aid. Hilditch said that this had been
done over the matter of Sixth avenue
and as a result the building inspector
had been called down for enforcing the
regulation.
Aid. Mobley said that these streets
put in by private enterprise were really
private property to some extent. If
private persons putting in such streets
were willing to keep them in repair
any teams they wanted to travel on the
streets would need to be allowed.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know to
whom he would have to appeal for
damages if a team on one of these
privately put up streets broke a plank
and he chanced to stumble there and
break a leg, he said he thought he
would come on the city.
Aid. Mobley said that if a team broke
a plank on a privately built street, the
paths intersected wuold see that the
repair was done at once for their own
convenience and safety since the street
was built at their expense.
Building Inspector Complained Of
D. H. Morrison has lodged a complaint with the city council, that the
building inspector, Mr. McNeil, has
been very much too officious in the
execution of his work regarding the
closing to traffic of a portion of Sixth
avenue which Mr. Morrison required to
use for transporting material. The
complaint even suggests that Mr. McNeil was incilned to use personal violence
over the matter.

An amusing incident enlivened the
proceedings of the Board of TradeMonday
night. The question of the non-payment
of dues came up, it having been stated at
a former meeting that a list of the members in arrears would be read at this
meeting. Letters were received from
some out of town members, enclosing
their subscriptions, others wrote ten-
! dering their resignation although there
' is a rule that a member cannot resign
while in arrears. Secretary Stephens
was instructed to write them to this
effect and the board passed on to other
business.
Meanwhile George W. Morrow, mem-
i ber of the council of the Board of Trade,
1 had come in and taken his seat.   A few
minutes later the president said:
"Oh, were you here when you were
declared delinquent, Mr. Morrow?"
As Mr. Morrow had not been present,
; and as he had not been declared delinquent there was a hearty laugh. But
his name had been read among those in
arrears and joining in the laugh he
obeyed the secretary's order to "Step up
and see the captain."
As he handed in the cash Mr. Morrow
remarked that he was handing in his
resignation also as he was leaving the
city during the month. Upon this the
president moved that the resignation be
not accepted, and speaking seriously
told how sorry the board was to lose so
valuable a member. He thought they
should decline to accept the resignation
in the hope that Mr. Morrow would And
some time next spring that Prince Rupert was beginning to again look pretty
good to him and would conclude to once
more become one of its leading citizens.
The members applauded and Mr.
Morrow gave a "might be" sort of
gratified smile.

FISH INDUSTRY
OF ISLANDS
QUEEN   CHARLOTTE   NEWS   ON
THE SUBJECT
Say* Two Million Dollars Have Been
Invested in Fishing Stations on the
Islands Within the Past Year.
Means a Good   Payroll
The fishing industry of the Queen
Charlotte Islands will in the near
future be a large factor in the upbuilding
and development of this part of the
province, says the Queen Charlotte News.
The waters surrounding the islands are
teeming with all kinds of fish and of
the most profitable kind, from whales
to the humble herring. Within the
past year several prominent men from
the old country have been here looking
into the conditions and were very
favorably impressed with what they
had seen and from the results it is
expected that an enormous amount of
capital will be invested in this growing
and safe industry.
Within the past year about $2,000,000
has been invested in fishing stations
on the Queen Charlotte Islands. At
Rose Harbor, on Moresby Island, the
station there even although only a
few months in operation has proved
to be a great success. The Moulton
Fishing Conpamy is another concern
that realizes the extent of which this
industry is capable of attaining and
accordingly they are taking steps to
reach that goal.
It is very gratifying to know that
a company starting in a small way
have before six months have passed,
decided to move to a larger and more
suitable site at Queen Charlotte. It
was announced last week that another
company intended putting in a large
cold storage plant here.
This is good news for Queen Charlotte
and will help greatly in the building
up of this city. It means that considerable employment will be given
to a large number of people who will
locate and build homes here. Neither
the Moulton Fishing Co. nor the Queen
Charlotte Cold Storage Co. will employ
Asiatics.
MORE LITERATURE WANTED
Board  of Trade Should  Publish  an
Extensive Annual Report
The Board of Trade Monday night
ordered a .check to be drawn to meet
the board's instalment for the printing of
the new folder, and incidental to this
Secretary Stephens pointed out that the
board was in need of a small pamphlet
containing just the minor information
that correspondents asked for. President Morris said that other boards got
out an annual report containing such
information, and he thought such a
course could be followed by Prince
Rupert.
The secretary said it would cost time
and money to hunt up the required
statistics suggested by the president, as
to the outcome of the fisheries, of the
mineral deposits, cf the farming operations and so on, but the president
pointed out that if the specialists of the
board were chosen on a committee and
each did his share an excellent annual
report would be the result. It was
then decided to refer the matter to the
council of the board.
Captain Edwin McCoskie was elected
a member of the board.

MUNICIPAL VOTERS' LIST
The municipal voters list for use at the next local election to be held on January 12, 1911, must be prepared during October and November. The qualifications
in Prince Rupert are somewhat different to what many resident citizens have been
accustomed to in other places they have lived. The Prince Rupert qualification
is that provided in the Municipal Election Act for all cities in the province.
To be a voter you must be a British subject, twenty-one years of age, a property
holder, householder, trade licensee or the representative of a company holding
property.
Property holders are automatically placed on the list of voters compiled from
the assessment roll, but trade license holders and householders who are not property
owners should file an application form with the city clerk during the month of
October in order to get on the list. These forms must be sworn to and in the one
instance, in addition to the regular qualifications, it requires the trade license fee
to have been paid in full; in the case of householders who have not paid other
taxes a two dollar road tax must be paid before the application is acceptable.
The interpretation of the term householder is very liberal in the British Columbia Act. Anyone renting a house, or room is considered a householder. This will
give the privilege of voting to a great many ladies but unless they are on the assessment roll for real estate taxes they will have to dome forward within the next few
weeks and make regular application in addition to paying the two dollar road tax.

GAVE BOY GUN
AND IS FINED
MAGISTRATE'S WARNING STERN
Dengerou8 Thing to Allow Boya
Under Age to Have Pistols and
Ammunition When So Many Gun
Accidenta Are Happening.
Edward Clyber appeared this morning
before Magistrate Carss charged with
having given a 38-calibre pistol to a
minor under the age of sixteen. He
admitted having done so, but said that
the boy had told him he had been sent
for the gun by his father who was going
out shooting. Accused said he was
sorry after he had let the weapon out
of his possession but it was too late. He
also said that he had refused to let the
boy have small arms asked for by him
before on several occasions. He believed ihat the boy had once been told
_Joj-��me to him for a pistol hy_a policeman. Chief McCarvell on behalf of the
city police force explained that he
understood that on the occasion referred to the man who had asked the
boy io get the gun from Clyber was not
a member of the city police force. The
chief further pointed out that Clyber had
been repeatedly warned against supplying boys under age with pistols oi
air gurs and ammunition, and said
that Clyber's defence was entitled on that
account to the less credence.
It was a first actually chargeable
offence however, and the Magistrate let
Clyber down lightly with a $3 fine and
costs. The pistol was confiscated. Clyber
said it was a cheap old thing and not
much good anyway, but Magistrate
Carss was very stern regarding the need
ffr Clyber's being much more careful in
future how he let pistols come into the
possession of young boys.
The Magistiate said it was scandalous
that boys under age should have pistols
and ammunition given them when there
were so many accidents with fireamrs
happening around, besides the fact that
mischievous boys could do damage with
these weapons to windows, etc., and
endanger passers-by on the streets.

COSY HOMES FOR MEN
Old Paaaenger Care and Sleepers for
the Construction Campi
The Grand Trunk Steamer Georgiana
is due here today, with a big cargo of
cars to be used as winter quarters for
the men working along the grade. In
this consignment are a number of old-
time Grand Trunk system coaches,
relics of the old days, w,hich have been
converted into outfit cars, some as
dining cars and others as sleepers. These
cars will be used to house the railroad
laborers, engineers and other construction
workers during the winter, as the cold
will practically render the tents which
are in use now, useless.
These oldtime coaches are relics of
the hand brake and link and pin coupling
days, cars with no vestibules, that
have gone out of date on the main line
of the east, and are relegated, like
worn out ships to less strenuous work.
These cars, however, are now fitted with
air brakes and automatic couplings,	
Plenty Chances to Gamble
October 1 marked the close of legalized gambling in the United States
when the Nevad.i law, closing all the
games of chance in that state came
into force. Men ol .gambling temperament, however, are not entirely
deprived of the opportunity of staking
their money on the turn of fortune's
wheel. Wall Street and the wheat pit
are always ready to receive tribute.
THE POPULAR BUNGALOW
Architect Barker Haa Devoted Much
Attention to That Style of House
Architect W. L. Barker is making a
speciality of plans for bungalows. He
lived in California and Oregon for a
number of years and that style of a
house is very popular there. He has on
hand the plans of many of the finest
bungalows in these states. He prepared
them himself and has always devoted
much time to that class of work. His
experience is therefore very valuable
and as the bungalow is, and will be, a
popular house in Prince Rupert that
experience will save the builder money
and at the same time give him the very
latest style. Mr. Barker will be pleased
to show the designs he has, or he will
prepare an entirely new set of plans
and embody therein any of the features
of the other plans which may appeal
to the prospective builder. His office
is on Third street back of the Bank of
Commerce.

YOUNG COUPLE
ARE WEDDED
YESTERDAY   IN   AUSTRIAN   NATIONAL STYLE
Everything Done as in Their Old
Homeland. Interesting and Picturesque Ceremonials Blend With
Festivity and Rejoicing.
The picturesque and romantic ceremony of an Austrian wedding took
place in Prince Rupert yesterday. The
bride was Miss Annie Gurvich, neice of
N. Gurvich, the proprietor of the Servian
hotel on Fraser street. The bridegroom
was Tom Mazlum joint owner of the
Eurpoa hotel. The wedding ceremony
was performed by R. Orloff the Russian
priest from Juneau, and the correct
forms and ceremonials peculiar to the
Austrian nation to which both bride and
bridgrgoom belong were strictly adhered to.
The brother of the bridegroom, Chris
Mazlum, came first to the home of the
bride accompanied by nine friends. On
arrival at the house they were welcomed
into the dining room where they waited
for a little while, until the ceremony
of duly handing over the bride to the
care of her future husband's brother by
John Gurvich, her cousin, was performed.
This ceremony was followed by the
entertainment of the bride's escorting
party at her own home with a good deal
of pleasantness and rejoicing.
The bride who is a charming girl of
twenty and looked very happy and
pretty in her white brid 1 attire with
veil and bouquet, was then escorted to
the door of her home by her cousin and
her future husband's brother. It was
the duty of her cousin to see that she
left her home safe and happy in the
protection of her escort and his body
guard. Once the bride left the house
with her escort, her relatives retired,
remaining' at home while the bridegroom's friends and representatives escorted her to her future home.
Here with due ceremony the bride
was handed over to the priest to whom
presently the bridegroom came prepared
for the marriage service at which, of
course, the bride's relatives were present.
After the ceremony had been performed
the assembled company took part in
feasting and festivities with music for
the rest of the evening in the home of
the newly wedded pair.
The bridegroom who is an energetic
nad business like partner in the management of the Europa hotel is just twenty-
three so everything looks promising for
a prosperous period of wedded bliss for
him and his young wife.

QUIET LITTLE
GAME OF POKER
DISTURBED   BY  POLICE  LAST
NIGHT
Two Principals Fined $50 Each and
Costs in Police Court Today for
Allowing Game on Their Premises.
A little before midnight last night the
police raided the Owl Cigar store as
Chief McCarvell had reason to suspect
that gambling was being pursued on the
premises. A game of poker was found in
progress for money stakes, and the
proprietors of the house and players,
five in all, were taken in charge while
the cards, etc., used in the game were
confiscated. The affair was carried
through quite quickly and quietly. A
small knot of passers-by on Second
avenue noticed that there was something doing, but there was no disturbance. The principals were summoned to appear at this morning's
police court.
Before the Magistrate this morning
accordingly William White and John
Collins appeared charged with having
allowed the playing of a game of chance
or of mixed chance and skill in their
premises.   They admitted having done
so, and were each fined $50 and costB.
Magistrate Carss said that this was
the first case of this nature he had
tried in Prince Rupert, and also a first
offence. He was therefore inclined to
take a lenient view of the .matter but
he pointed out that for an owner to
allow such games to go on in his house
is considered a more serious offence
than simply to go there and play.
Those who took part in the game will
also be called upon to give an account
of themselves. They did not appear
before the Magistrate this morning.

MUNICIPAL VOTERS' LIST
The municipal voters list for use at the next local election to be held on January 12, 1911, must be prepared during October and November. The qualifications
in Prince Rupert are somewhat different to what many resident citizens have been
accustomed to in other places they have lived. The Prince Rupert qualification
is that provided in the Municipal Election Act for all cities in the province.
To be a voter you must be a British subject, twenty-one years of age, a property
holder, householder, trade licensee or the representative of a company holding
property.
Property holders are automatically placed on the list of voters compiled from
the assessment roll, but trade license holders and householders who are not property
owners should file an application form with the city clerk during the month of
October in order to get on the list. These forms must be sworn to and in the one
instance, in addition to the regular qualifications, it requires the trade license fee
to have been paid in full; in the case of householders who have not paid other
taxes a two dollar road tax must be paid before the application is acceptable.
The interpretation of the term householder is very liberal in the British Columbia Act. Anyone renting a house, or room is considered a householder. This will
give the privilege of voting to a great many ladies but unless they are on the assessment roll for real estate taxes they will have to Come forward within the next few
weeks and make regular application in addition to paying the two dollar road tax.

GAVE BOY GUN
AND IS FINED
MAGISTRATES WARNING STERN
Dangerous Thing to Allow Boys
Under Age to Have Pistols and
Ammunition When So Many Gun
Accidents Are Happening.
Edward Clyber appeared this morning
before Magistrate Carss charged with
having given a 38-calibre pistol to a
minor under the age of sixteen. He
admitted having done so, but said that
the boy had told him he had been sent
for the gun by his father who was going
out shooting. Accused said he was
sorry after he had let the weapon out
of his possession but it was too late. He
also said that he had refused to let the
boy have small arms asked for by him
before on several occasions. He believed lhat the boy had once been told
to come to him for a pistol by a policeman. Chief McCarvell on behalf of the
city police force explained that he
understood that on the occasion referred to the man who had asked the
boy to get the gun from Clyber was not
a member of the city police force. The
chief further pointed out that Clyber had
been repeatedly warned against supplying boys under age with pistols oi
air guns and ammunition, and said
that Clyber's defence was entitled on that
account to the less credence.
It was a first actually chargeable
offence however, and the Magistrate let
Clyber down lightly with a $3 fine and
costs. The pistol was confiscated. Clyber
said it was a cheap old thing and not
much good anyway, but Magistrate
Carss was very stern regarding the need
f|r Clyber's being much more careful in
future how he let pistols come into the
possession of young boys.
The Magistiate said it was scandalous
that boys under age should have pistols
and ammunition given them when there
were so many accidents with fireamrs
happening around, besides the fact that
mischievous boys could do damage with
these weapons to windows, etc., and
endanger passers-by on the streets.

COSY HOMES FOR MEN
Old Passenger Cars and Sleepers for
the Construction Camps
The Grand Trunk Steamer Georgiana
is due here today, with a big cargo of
cars to be used as winter quarters for
the men working along the grade. In
this consignment are a number of old-
time Grand Trunk system coaches,
relics of the old days, w,hich have been
converted into outfit cars, some as
dining cars and others as sleepers. These
cars will be used to house the railroad
laborers, engineers and other construction
workers during the winter, as the cold
will practically render the tents which
are in use now, useless.
These oldtime coaches are relics of
the hand brake and link and pin coupling
days, cars with no vestibules, that
have gone out of date on the main line
of the east, and are relegated, like
worn out ships to less strenuous work.
These cars, however, are now fitted with
air brakes and automatic couplings.
Plenty Chances to Gamble
October 1 marked the close of legalized gambling in the United States
when the Nevada law, closing all the
games of chance in that state came
into force. Men of .gambling temperament, however, are not entirely
deprived of the opportunity of staking
their money on the turn of fortune's
wheel. Wall Street and the wheat pit
are always ready to receive tribute.
THE POPULAR BUNGALOW
Architect Barker Has Devoted Much
Attention to That Style of House
Architect W. L. Barker is making a
speciality of plans for bungalows. He
lived in California and Oregon for a
number of years and that style of a
house is very popular there. He has on
hand the plans of many of the finest
bungalows in these states. He prepared
them himself and has always devoted
much time to that class of work. His
experience is therefore very valuable
and as the bungalow is, and will be, a
popular house in Prince Rupert that
experience will save the builder money
and at the same time give him the very
latest style. Mr. Barker will be pleased
to show the designs he has, or he will
prepare an entirely new Bet of plans
and embody therein any of the features
of the other plans which may appeal
to the prospective builder. His office
is on Third street back of the Bank of
Commerce.

YOUNG COUPLE
ARE WEDDED
YESTERDAY   IN   AUSTRIAN   NATIONAL STYLE
Everything Done aa in Their Old
Homeland. Interesting and Picturesque Ceremonials Blend With
Festivity and Rejoicing.
The picturesque and romantic ceremony of an Austrian wedding took
place in Prince Rupert yesterday. The
bride was Miss Annie Gurvich, neice of
N. Gurvich, the proprietor of the Servian
hotel on Fraser street. The bridegroom
was Tom Mazlum joint owner of the
Eurpoa hotel. The wedding ceremony
was performed by R. Orloff the Russian
priest from Juneau, and the correct
forms and ceremonials peculiar to the
Austrian nation to which both bride and
bridgrgoom belong were strictly adhered to.
The brother of the bridegroom, Chris
Mazlum, came first to the home of the
bride accompanied by nine friends. On
arrival at the house they were welcomed
into the dining room where they waited
for a little while, until the ceremony
of duly handing over the bride to the
care of her future husband's brother by
John Gurvich, her cousin, was performed.
This ceremony was followed by the
entertainment of the bride's escorting
party at her own home with a good deal
of pleasantness and rejoicing.
The bride who is a charming girl of
twenty and looked very happy and
pretty in her white brid 1 attire with
veil and bouquet, was then escorted to
the door of her home by her cousin and
her future husband's brother. It was
the duty of her cousin to see that she
left her home safe and happy in the
protection of her escort and his body
guard. Once the bride left the house
with her escort, her relatives retired,
remaining' at home while the bridegroom's friends and representatives escorted her to her future home.
Here with due ceremony the bride
was handed over to the priest to whom
presently the bridegroom came prepared
for the marriage service at which, of
course, the bride's relatives were present.
After the ceremony had been performed
the assembled company took part in
feasting and festivities with music for
the rest of the evening in the home of
the newly wedded pair.
The bridegroom who is an energetic
nad business like partner in the management of the Europa hotel is just twenty-
three so everything looks promising for
a prosperous period of wedded bliss for
him and hiryouilg wife;

QUIET LITTLE
GAME OF POKER
DISTURBED   BY  POLICE   LAST
NIGHT
Two Principals Fined $50 Each and
Costs in Police Court Today for
Allowing Game on Their Premises.
A little before midnight last night the
police raided the Owl Cigar store as
Chief McCarvell had reason to suspect
that gambling was being pursued on the
premises. A game of poker was found in
progress for money stakes, and the
proprietors of the house and players,
five in all, were taken in charge while
the cards, etc., used in the game were
confiscated. The affair was carried
through quite quickly and quietly. A
small knot of passere-by on Second
avenue noticed that there was something doing, but there was no disturbance. The principals were summoned to appear at this morning's
police court.
Before the Magistrate this morning
accordingly William White and John
Collins appeared charged with having
allowed the playing of a game of chance
or of mixed chance and skill in their
premises.   They admitted having done
so, and were each fined $50 and costs.
Magistrate Carss said that this was
the first case of this nature he had
tried in Prince Rupert, and also a first
offence. He was therefore inclined to
take a lenient view of the .matter but
he pointed out that for an owner to
allow such games to go on in his house
is considered a more serious offence
than simply to go there and play.
Those who took part in the game will
also be called upon to give an account
of themselves. They did not appear
before the Magistrate this morning.

THE BABY AND

ENSIGN JOHNSTONE'S LITTLE
BOY AIDS THE ARMY
A Bom Artiat With the Drumstick He
Has Manipulated It Since Hi*
Feeding Bottle Daya. Now a Juvenile Expert.
MONEY ORDER
BANK SYSTEM
AMERICAN BANKERS ENDORSE A
NEW SYSTEM
Have you stopped yet at a Salvation
Army open air meeting at the foot of
Sixth street and seen the baby drummer-
boy beating time for the band? You've
got to see him now, for he's growing up
fast, and he won't be a baby drummer-
boy all the time. But today he holds
the proud distinction of being probably
the youngest Salvation Army drummer
in the world, and certainly the first
actual baby big drum artist for he has
weilded the drumstick since before he
could walk, and while his feeding bottle
was still beside him in the cradle.
His name is George Walrath Johnstone
and he is the son of Ensign and Mrs.
Johnstone whose able work in Salvation
Army leadership in the Klondike, and
now at Prince Rupert is well recognized.
Little George is now six years old
and an accomplished drum accompanist
at Salvation Army meetings. His
talent for the manipulation of the drumstick was discovered when at a wedding
in Nelson, B. C, baby George got hold
of the drumstick and like many another
baby banged the vellum with it. For a
moment probably little attention was
attracted to his doings, then suddenly
it dawned on the listeners that baby
George was not beating the drum as
any ordinary baby would, but was
keeping rhythmic time to the music.
The little one has the musical sense
highly developed particularly in regard
to the sense of time.
All the time Ensign and Mrs. Johnstone were stationed in the Klondike
baby George beat the drum at their
meetings. He was the darling of the
husky miners around, and the meetings
at which his energetic accompaniment
was heard were always thronged.
Not only at the Klondike, but all the
way from Nelson to the Yukon station
the baby drummer revealed his powers
wherever Ensign and Mrs. Johnstone
stopped on their way north. He has
beaten time for some of the biggest
Salvation Army bands while still quite
a tiny infant. In fact, he used to have
his feeding bottle in one hand and the
big drumstick in the other while sitting
up in his cradle he accompanied the
music of the band.
The city T>ancT at Dawson honored
him by requesting his services as drum
accompanist on a number of occasions
and of course wherever his father and
mother held services he has been present.
He accompanies their open air services
now in Prince Rupert, is present at the
services in the theatre and when the new
hall is built he will be there at the
opening services and the regular services
afterwards.
Besides being skilled with the big
drum, George Walrath Johnstone is
developing into a fine young singer, and
is making rapid progress with the piano.
He has been at school now for six
months and can read, and write a capital
letter already.
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
Will Issue Money Orders for Large or
Small Amounts Just as Is Now
Being Done by the National Post-
offices.
Los Angeles, Oct.* 9.���Delegates to
the thirty sixth convention of the
American Bankers Association, numbering about 1,500, met in session here
today.
That the bankers are determined to
have a money order system that will be
equal to that of the United States government a d express companies, was
demonstrated when the report of the
committee on express companies and
money orders was read by C. R. James,
of Pennsylvania, in the absence of
Joseph Chapman, Jr., chairman of this
committee. The committee recommended that the banks shall issue some
such form of money orders as are now
issued by the government through the
postoffice department and express companies, and have some financial institution of merit act as agent.
The system as proposed is similar to
a system of travelers' checks now in
vogue, but has a much wider scope and
provides facilities for sending small or
large money orders through banks with
the same guarantee of efficiency and
security as provided by the postoffice
department and express companies. It
was shown that the foreign and domestic money orders now issued by the
government and express companies annually amount to upwards of $7,000,000,
and it was urged that the public would
be greatly convenienced by a system
of money orders issued through banks
as proposed. The plan as outlined met
with the enthusiastic indorsement of
the convention.

Phenix Show Is First Rate
The excellent living picture shows
given at the Phenix Theatre are attracting crowds now every evening.
The Optimist viewed the famous "Transfusion" picture shown last night and
found it in keeping with the high standard
of excellence and attractiveness maintained by the management. The Phenix
is always cosy and its shows are never
disappointing.
An Interesting Rumor
An interesting report comes from
Ottawa to the effect that the federal
member for Nanaimo is likely to retire
from Dominion politics and take the
lead of the provincial opposition party,
observed the Vancouver News-Advertiser.
It is related that when Sir Wilfrid
Laurier was in British Columbia he
lamented the weakness of the opposition to the McBride administration, and
invited Mr. Ralph Smith to undertake
tne task of bringing the province into
haromny with the ministry at Ottawa.
According to thia story Mr. Smith was
reminded that Caesar thought it better
to be first in a little Iberian village
than to be second in Rome. Whether it
is better to lead an opposition at Victoria or be second to Mr. Templeman at
Ottawa is the problem for Mr. Smith.

The list of arrivals and departures at

shows how immensely the business has
grown in so short a time and the need of
greater wharfage accommodation. With
this month shipping will no doubt show
a decrease during the winter months

FIRST AVE. AND SEVENTH STREET
Prince Rupert, B.C. 79tf
Have you stopped yet at a Salvation
Army open air meeting at the foot of
Sixth street and seen the baby drummer-
boy beating time for the band? You've
got to see him now, for he's growing up
fast, and he won't be a baby drummer-
boy all the time. But today he holds
the proud distinction of being probably
the youngest Salvation Army drummer
in the world, and certainly the first
actual baby big drum artist for he has
weilded the drumstick since before he
could walk, and while his feeding bottle
was still beside him in the cradle.
His name is George Walrath Johnstone
and he is the son of Ensign and Mrs.
Johnstone whose able work in Salvation
Army leadership in the Klondike, and
now at Prince Rupert is well recognized.
Little George is now six years old
and an accomplished drum accompanist
at Salvation Army meetings. His
talent for the manipulation of the drumstick was discovered when at a wedding
in Nelson, B. C, baby George got hold
of the drumstick and like many another
baby banged the vellum with it. For a
moment probably little attention was
attracted to his doings, then suddenly
it dawned on the listeners that baby
George was not beating the drum as
any ordinary baby would, but was
keeping rhythmic time to the music.
The little one has the musical sense
highly developed particularly in regard
to the sense of time.
All the time Ensign and Mrs. Johnstone were stationed in the Klondike
baby George beat the drum at their
meetings. He was the darling of the
husky miners around, and the meetings
at which his energetic accompaniment
was heard were always thronged.
Not only at the Klondike, but all the
way from Nelson to the Yukon station
the baby drummer revealed his powers
wherever Ensign and Mrs. Johnstone
stopped on their way north. He has
beaten time for some of the biggest
Salvation Army bands while still quite
a tiny infant. In fact, he used to have
his feeding bottle in one hand and the
big drumstick in the other while sitting
up in his cradle he accompanied the
music of the band.
The city band at Dawson honored
him by requesting his services as drum
accompanist on a number of occasions
and of course wherever his father and
mother held services he. has been present.
He accompanies their open air services
now in Prince Rupert, is present at the
services in the theatre and when the new
hall is built he will be there at the
opening services and the regular services
afterwards.
Besides being skilled with the big
drum, George Walrath Johnstone is
developing into a fine young singer, and
is making rapid progress with the piano.
He has been at school now for six
months and can read, and write a capital
letter already.

Pub. Sept. I John Dybhavn. Agent
Los Angeles, Oct.. 9.���Delegates to
the thirty sixth convention of the
American Bankers Association, numbering about 1,500, met in session here
today.
That the bankers are determined to
have a money order system that will be
equal to that of the United States government a d express companies, was
demonstrated when the report of the
committee on express companies and
money orders was read by C. R. James,
of Pennsylvania, in the absence of
Joseph Chapman, Jr., chairman of this
committee. The committee recommended that the banks shall issue some
such form of money orders as are now
issued by the government through the
postoffice department and express companies, and have some financial institution of merit act as agent.
The system as proposed is similar to
a system of travelers' checks now in
vogue, but has a much wider scope and
provides facilities for sending small or
large money orders through banks with
the same guarantee of efficiency and
security as provided by the postoffice
department and express companies. It
was shown that the foreign and domestic money orders now issued by the
government and express companies annually amount to upwards of $7,000,000,
and it was urged that the public would
be greatly convenienced by a system
of money orders issued through banks
as proposed. The plan as outlined met
with the enthusiastic indorsement of
the convention.
HAZELTON THEFT CHARGE
Indians A. Matthews and P. Brown
in   Court  Today
Austin Matthews and Peter Brown,
two Indians from Hazelton, appeared
before Judge Young yesterday afternoon
charged with stealing various articles of
food principally from P. Burn's warehouse at Hazelton. The articles alleged
to have been stolen included cases of
bacon, butter, beef, etc., and also a
saddle and bridle all the property* of
P. Bums. Mr. Manson appeared for
the defence, and Mr. Warton for the
prosecution. The prisoners pleaded not
guilty and elected to have speedy trial.
Judge Young adjourned the case till
today.
Phenix Show Is First Rate
The excellent living picture shows
given at the Phenix Theatre are attracting crowds now every evening.
The Optimist viewed the famous "Transfusion" picture shown last night and
found it in keeping with the high standard
of excellence and attractiveness maintained by the management. The Phenix
is always cosy and its shows are never
disappointing.
An Interesting Rumor
An interesting report comes from
Ottawa to the effect that the federal
member for Nanaimo is likely to retire
from Dominion politics and take the
lead of the provincial opposition party,
observed the Vancouver News-Advertiser.
It is related that when Sir Wilfrid
Laurier was in British Columbia he
lamented the weakness of the opposition to the McBride administration, and
invited Mr. Ralph Smith to undertake
the task of bringing the province into
haromny with the ministry at Ottawa.
According to this story Mr. Smith was
reminded that Caesar thought it better
to be first in a little Iberian village
than to be second in Rome. Whether it
is better to lead an opposition at Victoria or be second to Mr. Templeman at
Ottawa is the problem for Mr. Smith.

IMMENSE INCREASE IN NUMBER
OF VESSELS
Practically All Had to Dock at One
Wharf, but Inadequacy of Accommodation Will Be Remedied By
Next Spring.
The list of arrivals and departures at
this port during the month of September
shows how immensely the business has
grown in so short a time and the need of
greater wharfage accommodation. With
this month shipping will no doubt show
a decrease during the winter months
and by spring the present inadequacy
of the dockage will be remedied. The
Grand Trunk Pacific is already enlarging
its wharf at the north end, and the government wharf will be completed���
sometime. Here is the statement for
the month of September:

LOOKS BAD ON RIVER
Heavy Frost Last Night Has Lowered
the Water Considerably
There was a heavy frost last night,
forming ice all along the tributaries
of the Skeena and thus confining the
water. The stage is now two feet two
inches below zero, and this is about as
low as any of the steamers can safely
travel at. In fact, doubts are expressed
as to the Port Simpson being able to
get back, unless there should be a very
pronounced change in the weather.
The boys at Foley, Welch & Stewart
offices were kept at work all last night
freighting out two boats in a hurry.  The
Operator left at four o'clock this morning
this morning  fior Beaver  Dam.    The

I loaded  with material for the bridge at
Skeena crossing.   Both carried as much
cargo as it was safe for them to handle.
