The Prince Rupert Optimist
DAILY   EDITION
^BAPTISTS HAVE
GOODPREACHER
REV W. H. MXEOD'S OPENING
SERMON IN PRINCE RUPERT
New Past" It ��n Eloquent Evangelist
A���d Powerful Preacher With Gift
4 Illustration Well Developed
ud Dramatic Power.
He Baptists of Prince Rupert have
ifcir new pastor Rev. W. H. McLeod,
, preacher of power, and a pastor of
m and winning personality. Rev.
Mr. McLeod preached his post sermon
jn the Baptist church on Sunday morning, from the words "The Just shall
live by Faith" contained in the 16th
and 17th verses of Romans Chapter 1.
His sermon which was listened to with
rapt attention was strongly evangelistic
intone and delivered with telling effect.
Rev. Mr. McLeod is a speaker who can
sway large audiences. He will have
large audiences in Prince Rupert.
"Man shall not live by bread aloite".
With these words emphasised in the
opening sentences of his sermon the
pastor dwelt on the all important
spiritual side of man's life���the side
most responsive to the power of faith.
"Faith in Christ Jesus" he declared
earnestly "has been the characterustic
of the world's greatest men." He went
on to give dramatically told instances
ol the power of faith in great men,
told of the work of Martin Luther and
tie vision of Christ that came to him
upon the holy stairway in Jerusalem;
aid drew vividly the pictures of the life
ol Saul of Tarsus his early life and his
conversion by the vision of Christ upon
the road to Damascus.
"And in like manner" went on the
preacher, "although the faith of many
in the [ace of persecution, and the faith
ol great men in the world's history the
growth and spread of Christianity have
been carried on through the ages. From
the East where laboured against heavy
odds such men as Luther, Wesley and
Whitfield, the power of Christ has
forced its way westwards over the sea,
and across this continent to the Pacific
coast. That marvellous power of Christ
is here to day in Prince Rupert the
baby metropolis of British Columbia,
the budding city which is to be the centre
yet of a vast commerce to come.
"Already" he went on "the great
mass of the people are on Christ's side.
Even those who are not openly for Christ
Wl not say anything against him. There
never was a time like this twenthieth
witury for the cause of Christ. The
M who live by faith in Christ are to be
f��d in this land's legislature, and
]y �� well for the only hope of having
m is to have legislators who are fol-
owers of Christ. Men who have faith
n Christ will become just men. Thus
��e world is marching forward for Christ
is!nners are being dismayed and
"���"led on every hand."

WORKMAN FALLS
TWENTY FEET
OFF   WALL   OF   NEW   BANK   OF
MONTREAL   BUILDING
Stunned by Fall and Carried to
Hospital on a Stretcher���Injuries
To Back and Side Which May
Be Serious.
An accident occurred this morning to
D. C. Yates a workman employed on
the construction of the new concrete
building on Third avenue near Fulton
street in process of erection for the new
premises of the Bank of Montreal.
Yates was standing on the top of one
of the walls at the rear of the corner of
the building facing Fifth street and was
engaged in removing lagging from the
wall when he overbalanced himself and
fell a distance of some fifteen or twenty
feet to the ground.
He was stunned by the fall and remained unconscious for some time.
Efforts were made to bring him round
and he regained consciousness sufficiently to complain of injuries to his
back and side. Dr. McNeil was at once
summoned and arriving promptly examined Yates who had relapsed into a
semi comatose condition. The examination showed to Dr. McNeil that
the man's injuries were serious, though
it was impossible to judge their extent
on the spot. Dr. McNeil accordingly
advised Yates' removal to the hospital
without delay.
A stretcher was obtained and Yates
was conveyed to the hospital. A rumor
to the effect that the man's back was
broken by the fall is unconfirmed by
Dr. McNeil, but there can be no doubt
that his injuries are serious.

EXCITEMENT AT
NIAGARA FALLS
GOES     THROUGH     WHIRLPOOL
RAPIDS  IN  MOTOR   BOAT
Foolhardy Trick of Captain Laraen���
Only Man Who Has Ever Passed
Through Rapids and Lived to Tell
the Tale.
Niagara Falls, N. Y., Sept. 23���Captain Klaus Larsen, in his little motor-
boat, the Ferro, late yesterday made a
successful trip from the foot of the
cataract through the whirlpool rapids
to within a mile of Lewiston, a distance
of four and one half miles.
He started from Maid (of the Mist
dock at 4:45 and ran on a rock near the
American shore 5:30. Despite the
battering of the whirlpool rapids, Lar-
sent went through safely, but his boat
was leaking badly at the finish, and
throughout the trip, Larsen had intended starting at 2 o'clock, but was delayed by engine trouble. Besides, the
authorities threatened to interfere on
the ground of attempted suicide.
The Ferro swung under the cantilever bridge, the engine running at top
speed, and was caught in the swift drift
where the river begins its rush down
to the whirlpool rapids. Larsen held
to the middle of the channel, and in
less than three minutes had made the
great pool.
In the trip through the rapids the little boat was lost to sight most of the
time, but at Great Wave she shot twenty
feet out of the water. The boat landed
right and continued to the pool. Larsen kept to the outer edge of the pool
and passed out and down without accident. Just as he left the pool the engine stopped working and Larsen was
at the mercy of the waters, hardly less
violent than those above. The little
boat swung stern first and turned completely over. Larsen coming up with
it badly battered. Here also his leg
was injured.
After that Larsen was a mere plaything for the rapids, unable to hold the
course, the boat swinging from one side
to the other.
After going through the Devil's Hole
the Ferro swung toward the rocks on
the American side of the river, rolled
over one boulder and became wedged
between two others.
There Larsen stayed for five minutes,
forty feet from shore, working desperately to release the craft. Getting free
he was hit by a comber and went careening towards the middle. At the
bend, with the Leadstone bridge in
sight, the boat drifted toward the American side again and was then caught in
the shore eddy. The Ferro grounded
this time near enough shore to be caught
by Roy Rockwell, of this city, who waded into the water and caught a rope
thrown by Larsen.
Larsen wanted to keep on the trip,
but having accomplished the worst
part of the journey he was persuaded
to board a trolley to Lewiston, letting the boat adrift.
Except the old Maid of the Mist, sent
through in 1864 to avoid seizure, Lar-
sen's is the only engine propelled craft
that has gone through the rapids. Peter
Nissen, of Chicago, in 1900, and C. A.
Percy, in 1887 and 1909, went through
the rapidB safely in barrels. No one
else has ever passed through the rapids
and lived.

WAS   A   GREAT   VICTORY.
New Westminsters Beat the Nationals   by  Eleven   to  One
New Westminster, Sept. 26,���The
local team proved the victors in the
struggle for the Minto Cup on Saturday,
beating .he Nationals of Montreal by a
score of eleven to one. It was uphill
work for the local champions at the
beginning, taking seven and a half
minutes to score the first goal. The
visitors scored one and that was
all that could be done in the first quarter.
But early in the succeeding quarter
the Westminsters scored awain, and from
that time on seemed to have the game
all their own way, their opponents
failing to score at all.
There was great rejoicing over the
result, as this gives the local holders
of the cup two straight games.

WATER SUPPLY
EXCELLENT   PRECAUTIONS   FOR
FIRE   PROTECTION
While Supply For Domestic Purposes
Will Continue Ample Even in
Dry Weather Thanks to City

FIRE FIGHTERS'
NEW APPLIANCES
WHERE   THE   TWO   NEW   HOSE
REELS   WILL    BE    STATIONED.
Fire Chief Mclnnis Chooses Positions and Will Advise Committee
Still Waiting For the Larger
Fire Extinguisher.
The two new hose reels which have
arrived at the fire station are awaiting
the result of Fire Chief Mclnnis' report
to the Fire and Water committee of the
city council regarding the best positions
for them so as to safeguard the congested districts of Section one.
Each hose reel is constructed to accommodate 500 feet of hose. Fire Chief
Mclnnis has a full supply of hose in
hand for the both reels with 900 feet
for the present hose waggon, and some
500 or 600 feet to spare.
At present the congested portions of
Section one are protected by lengths
of hose kept ready for instant action
at the corner of Sixth street and Second
avenue, and at Sixth street and Third
avenue, and Fire Chief Mclnnis proposes to recommend that one of the new
hose reels be stationed at the corner of
Sixth street and Second avenue as this
is an important centre and as the water
pressure there is good.
"The position on Sixth street and
Third avenue is not quite so good,"
says the Fire chief, "as the water pressure
is lower there."
The station to be recommended by
Mr.' Mclnnis for the second hose reel
is at the junction of Eighth street and
Second avenue. This position will be
an advantageous one the Fire Chief
thinks.
Aid. Mobley says that the Fire and
Water committee will be guided largely
in their decision regarding the placing
of these reels by the advice of Fire Chief
Mclnnis.
Regarding the new combined chemical
fire extinguishing apparatus and motor
hose reel, both Fire Chief Mclnnis
and Aid. Mobley are still in the expectation stage. "The new appliance
was ordered quite two months ago"
says Aid. Mobley "but there is the usual
delay in delivery from which business
men and civic communities alike suffer.
However we may expect the machine
any day now.,
Freight Engineer Killed
Terre Haute, .Sept. 24.���(Special)���
The northbound passenger train on the
Southern Indiana line this monring
collided with a fast freight. The freight
freight engineer was killed and four
other men were seriously injured.
The city water supply is at present
in a very satisfactory condition both as
regards demestic supply and supply
for fire protection. This condition of
things the citizens owe very largely to
the foresight and exertions of the city
engineer who has planned and carried
out the compensation supply and fire
reserve system for periods of dry weather
or when the sources are partly frost
bound.
"The present condition of things
regarding the water supply is this,"
said the city engineer this morning:
With the unaugmented sources alone
to depend on, a week of dry weather
reduces the quantity of water so much
that there is not sufficient to supply
consumers. The pumping system is
then set goinfj and draws its supply
from the upper part of Hays Creek
where a dam has been constructed.
This pumped supply compensates the
city reservoir for the shortage due to
drought.
"Meanwhile as long as the pumped
supply continues we shut off the supply
to the city reservoir from three small
reservoirs on the mountain side, and
reserve the water that accumulates
in these for fire protection, as the
pressure is ample from that source.
There is abundance of water for domestic
purposes since the Hays Creek supply
gives over 300 gallons per minute even
in dry weather which is considerably
more than the capacity of the pump.
But the pumps would not furnish
sufficient pressure for fire protection,
and on this account it is depended on
only to supply consumers, while the
water stored on the mountain side is
what we depend on for fire protection."
The new pressure reducing valve to
be fitted to prevent leakage in the pipe
system in certain districts is on order
but has not yet arrived. As soon as it
does arrive it will be fitted.

CRIPPEN CASE
BODY OF GIRL BURIED  IN  CEMENT CELLAR
Believed to Be That of Pretty Stenographer Who Disappeared in January���Death the Result of Operation Which Scared Doctor.
(Special to the Optimist)
San Francisco, Sept. 24.���A body
found under a new cement floor, to which
the police were directed by a man named
Gordon, has unearthed a murder that
is similar in many respects to the
Crippen case. Gordon declares that the
girl died on an operating table, and the
doctor operating becoming frightened
disposed of it by the use of nitric acid. A
man named Sachs is alleged to have
aided the doctor to dispose of the
remains,
The police are endeavoring to identify
the remains as those of a pretty stenographer named Eva Swan, of Pasa
Robles, who disappeared in San Francisco last January. THE  PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

WHAT IS  BEHIND
(Edmonton Journal)
That there is something more than
mere shortage of labor behind the G. T. P.
howl is a matter which requires but
little perspicuity to appreciate.
If all that stood between the Grand
Trunk Pacific and the accomplishment
of ita designs was the lack of a few hundred or thousand railroaders to construct the mountain section it is not at
all likely that men of the calibre that
Hays and Smithers are presumed to be
would waste much tfme going about the
country howling about the necessity
or Oriental labor. They would simply
take a leaf from the Canadian Northern
and C. P. R. and improve the conditions under which the railroaders work.
If that was not sufficient inducement,
a raise of a few cento a day in the pay
offered would bring them.
The cry that there are not men enough
to do the work is all tommy-rot. When
the United States commenced to build
the Panama Canal it took possession
of a pestilential, fever-laden swamp,
the graveyard of the hopes, ambitions
and reputations of the alleged great
men of France, and by the application
of proper sanitary science made the
camps along the ditch healthy and
pleasant places in which to live, with the
ultimate result that there is now sufficient
labor to build the canal and more offering for the past year than hag been required. The rules which applied to
Panama should apply to the Coast
section of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
and the new transcontinental has the
advantage over any other road that
ever crossed the mountains in the respect that three quarters of the cost,
whatever that may be, is guaranteed
by the government, making it a work
on which, for all practical purposes,
the usual usages of public works could
be applied.
Furthermore, the other railway enterprises in this country are not raising
any howl about shortage of labor or
the necessity of importing Orientals
and why should the Grand Trunk?
It is noticeable in this connection
that the agent of the Norwegian government in Montreal, only the other day,
came out with the statement that he
was advising his fellow countrymen
not to come to Canada to work on the
railways, as he had ample evidence
that they were not well treated when
they got here. Considering in connectio
with this fact that some six months
ago the announcement was made that
the G. T. P. had put itself in a position
to get all the labor required by opening
employment offices in Norway, it is
easily seen that any labor shortage
which prevails is due to circumstances
over which Hays and Smithers have
absolute control and which they could
amend by merely issuing the orders.
It must be that there ia something
more than the labor shortage back
of this G. T. P. howl.
It is a well known fact that President
Hays has had engineers on the ground
from the commencement ol construction
of the Transcontinental and that he has
been protesting to Ottawa about the
excessive cost, filing his protests in detail to show where the cost is out of all
proportion to the difficulties, pointing
out the places where the specifications
have been altered to give rock prices
for loose earth excavation and all the
other grafts which have become notorious
on the part of the road.
Can it be that the stupendous cost
which has been piled up against the
Transcontinental and on which according to the agreement the G. T. P.
must pay three per cent., has frightened
Hays to such an extent that he Is about
to throw the whole proposition back
on the government's hands?
If that is the case, the west will say
without hesitation "done."
If you think your husband too fond
of another woman, become her friend
and cut him out.
There is one thing a woman dreads
more than loss of money, or of love.
Loss of hair.

BAPTISTS HAVE
GOODPREACHER
pry W H. M'LEOD'S OPENING
SERMON IN PRINCE RUPERT
N,w Pa.tor i. an Eloquent Evangtolist
And Powerful Preacher With Gift
*, Illustration Well Developed
md Dramatic Power.
Tke Baptists of Prince Rupert have
itlrir new pastor Rev. W.H. McLeod,
, ,reacher of power, and a pastor of
mug and winning personality. Rev.
Mr. McLeod preached his post sermon
in the Baptist church on Sunday morning, from the words "The Just shall
live by Faith" contained in the 16th
and 17th verses of Romans Chapter 1.
Ei! sermon which was listened to with
rapt attention was strongly evangelistic
in tone and delivered with telling effect.
Rev. Mr. McLeod is a speaker who can
sway large audiences. He will have
large audiences in Prince Rupert.
"Man shall not live by bread alone".
With these words emphasised in the
opening sentences of his sermon the
pastor dwelt on the all important
spiritual side of man's life���the side
most responsive to the power of faith.
"Faith in Christ Jesus" he declared
earnestly "has been the characteristic
ol the world's greatest men." He went
on to give dramatically told instances
ol the power of faith in great men,
told of the work of Martin Luther and
the vision of Christ that came to him
upon the holy stairway in Jerusalem;
and drew vividly the pictures of the life
ol Saul of Tarsus his early life and his
tonversion by the vision of Christ upon
the road to Damascus.
"And in like manner" went on the
preacher, "although the faith of many
in the face of persecution, and the faith
ol great men in the world's history the
growth and spread of Christianity have
been carried on through the ages. From
the East where laboured against heavy
odds such men as Luther, Wesley and
Whitfield, the power of Christ has
forced its way westwards over the sea,
and across this continent to the Pacific
coast. That marvellous power of Christ
is here to day in Prince Rupert the
baby metropolis of British Columbia,
the budding city which is to be the centre
yet of a vast commerce to come.
"Already" he went on "the great
mass of the people are on Christ's side.
Even those who are not openly for Christ
nil not say anything against him. There
"ever was a time like this twenthieth
century for the cause of Christ. The
m who live by faith in Christ are to be
(��"nd in this land's legislature, and
j' is well for the only hope of having
, s ls t0 have legislators who are folders of Christ. Men who have faith
I Lhnst wM become just men. Thus
��e world is marching forward for Christ
m1 sinners are being dismayed and
Wled on every hand."

CONTINUED ON
PAGE 4
An accident occurred this morning to
D. C. Yates a workman employed on
the construction of the new concrete
building on Third avenue near Fulton
street in process of erection for the new
premises of the Bank of Montreal.
Yates was standing on the top of one
of the walls at the rear of the corner of
the building facing Fifth Btreet and was
engaged in removing lagging from the
wall when he overbalanced himself and
fell a distance of some fifteen or twenty
feet to the ground.
He was stunned by the fall and remained unconscious for some time.
Efforts were made to bring him round
and he regained consciousness sufficiently to complain of injuries to his
back and side. Dr. McNeil was at once
summoned and arriving promptly examined Yates who had relapsed into a
semi comatose condition. The examination showed to Dr. McNeil that
the man's injuries were serious, though
it was impossible to judge their extent
on the spot. Dr. McNeil accordingly
advised Yates' removal to the hospital
without delay.
A stretcher was obtained and Yates
was conveyed to the hospital. A rumor
to the effect that the man's back was
broken by the fall is unconfirmed by
Dr. McNeil, but there can be no doubt
that his injuries are serious.

Foolhardy Trick of Captain Larsen���
Only Man Who Has Ever Passed
Through Rapids and Lived to Tell
the Tale.
Niagara Falls, N. Y., .Sept. 23.���Captain Klaus Larsen, in his little motor-
boat, the Ferro, late yesterday made a
successful trip from the foot of the
cataract through the whirlpool rapids
to within a mile of Lewiston, a distance
of four and one half miles.
He started from Maid (of the Mist
dock at 4:45 and ran on a rock near the
American shore 5:30. Despite the
battering of the whirlpool rapids, Lar-
sent went through safely, but his boat
was leaking badly at the finish, and
throughout the trip, Larsen had intended starting at 2 o'clock, but was delayed by engine trouble. Besides, the
authorities threatened to interfere on
the ground of attempted suicide.
The Ferro swung under the cantilever bridge, the engine running at top
speed, and was caught in the swift drift
where the river begins its rush down
to the whirlpool rapids. Larsen held
to the middle of the channel, and in
less than three minutes had made the
great pool.
In the trip through the rapids the little boat was lost to sight most of the
time, but at Great Wave she shot twenty
feet out of the water. The bpat landed
right and continued to the pool. Larsen kept to the outer edge of the pool
arid passed out and down without accident. Just as he left the pool the engine stopped working and Larsen was
at the mercy of the waters, hardly less
violent than those above. The little
boat swung stern first and turned com-
pletely over. Larsen coming up with
it badly battered. Here also his leg
was injured.
After that Larsen was a mere plaything for the rapids, unable to hold the
course, the boat swinging from one side
to the other.
After going through the Devil's Hole
the Ferro swung toward the rocks on
the American side of the river, rolled
over one boulder and became wedged
between two others.
There Larsen stayed for five minutes,
forty feet from shore, working desperately to release the craft. Getting free
he was hit by a comber and went careening towards the middle. At the
bend, with the Leadstone bridge in
sight, the boat drifted toward the American side again and was then caught in
the shore eddy. The Ferro grounded
this time near enough shore to be caught
by Roy Rockwell, of this city, who waded into the water and caught a rope
thrown by Larsen.
Larsen wanted to keep on the trip,
but having accomplished the worst
part of the journey he was persuaded
to board a trolley to Lewiston, letting the boat adrift.
Except the old Maid of the Mist, sent
through in 1864 to avoid seizure, Lar-
sen's is the only engine propelled craft
that has gone through the rapids. Peter
Nissen, of Chicago, in 1900, and C. A.
Percy, in 1887 and 1909, went through
the rapids safely in barrels. No one
else has ever passed through the rapids
and lived.
WAS   A   GREAT   VICTORY.
New Westminsters Beat the Nationals  by  Eleven  to  One
New Westminster, .Sept. 26,���The
local team proved the victors in the
struggle for the Minto Cup on Saturday,
beating .he Nationals of Montreal by a
score of eleven to one. It was uphill
work for the local champions at the
beginning, taking seven and a half
minutes to score the first goal. The
visitors scored one and that was
all that could be done in the first quarter.
But early in the succeeding quarter
the Westminsters scored awain, and from
that time on seemed to have the game
all their own way, their opponents
failing to score at all.
There was great rejoicing over the
result, as this gives the local holders
of the cup two straight games.

FIRE FIGHTERS'
NEW APPLIANCES
WHERE   THE   TWO   NEW    HOSE
REELS    WILL    BE    STATIONED.
Fire Chief Mclnnis Chooses Positions and Will Advise Committee
Still Waiting For the Larger
Fire Extinguisher.
Buy case eggs for political meetings
but don't eat them. Red C. stamped
Eggs are the only ones fit to eat.
The two new hose reels which have
arrived at the fire station are awaiting
the result of Fire Chief Mclnnis' report
to the Fire and Water committee of the
city council regarding the best positions
for them so as to safeguard the congested districts of Section one.
Each hose reel is constructed to accommodate 500 feet of hose. Fire Chief
Mclnnis has a full supply of hose in
hand for the both reels with 900 feet
for the present hose waggon, and some
500 or 600 feet to spare.
At present the congested portions of
Section one are protected by lengths
of hose kept ready for instant action
at the corner of Sixth street and Second
avenue, and at Sixth street and Third
avenue, and Fire Chief Mclnnis proposes to recommend that one of the new
hose reels be stationed at the corner of
Sixth street and Second avenue as this
is an important centre and as the water
pressure there is good.
"The position on Sixth street and
Third avenue is not quite so good,"
says the Fire chief, "as the water pressure
is lower there."
The station to be recommended by
Mr. Mclnnis for the second hose reel
is at the junction of Eighth street and
Second avenue. This position will be
an advantageous one the Fire Chief
thinks.
Aid. Mobley sayB that the Fire and
Water committee will be guided largely
in their decision regarding the placing
of these reels by the advice of Fire Chief
Mclnnis.
Regarding the new combined chemical
fire extinguishing apparatus and motor
hose reel, both Fire Chief Mclnnis
and Aid. Mobley are still in the expectation stage. "The new appliance
was ordered quite two months ago"
says Aid. Mobley "but there is the usual
delay in delivery from which business
men and civic communities alike suffer.
However we may expect the machine
any day now.,
The city water supply is at present
in a very satisfactory condition both as
regards demestic supply and supply
for fire protection. This condition of
things the citizens owe very largely to
the foresight and exertions of the city
engineer who has planned and carried
out the compensation supply and fire
reserve system for periods of dry weather
or when the sources are partly frost
bound. *
"The present condition of things
regarding the water supply is this,"
said the city engineer this morning:
With the unaugmented sources alone
to depend on, a week of dry weather
reduces the quantity of water so much
that there is not sufficient to supply
consumers. The pumping system is
then set goini; and draws its supply
from the upper part of Hays Creek
where a dam has been constructed.
This pumped supply compensates the
city reservoir for the shortage due to
drought.
"Meanwhile as long as the pumped
supply continues we shut off the supply
to the city reservoir from three small
reservoirs on the mountain side, and
reserve the water that accumulates
in these for fire protection, as the
pressure is ample from that source.
There is abundance of water for domestic
purposes since the Hays Creek supply
gives over 300 gallons per minute even
in dry weather w-hich is considerably
more than the capacity of the pump.
But the pumps would not furnish
sufficient pressure for fire protection,
and on this account it is depended on
only to supply consumers, while the
water stored on the mountain side is
what we depend on for fire protection."
The new pressure reducing valve to
be fitted to prevent leakage in the pipe
system in certain districts is on order
but has not yet arrived. As soon as it
does arrive it will be fitted.

San Francisco, Sept. 24.���A body
found under a new cement floor, to which
the police were directed by a man named
Gordon, has unearthed a murder that
is similar in many respects to the
Crippen case. Gordon declares that the
girl died on an operating table, and the
doctor operating becoming frightened
disposed of it by the use of nitric acid. A
man named Sachs is alleged to have
aided the doctor to dispose of the
remains.
The police are endeavoring to identify
the remains as those of a pretty stenographer named Eva Swan, of Pasa

EXPERTS AT HAZELTON
Mr. Steele Think* Country Too Rich
For    Cursory    Investigation
While R. G. Steele, the famous mining
expert, was lounging about the hotel at
Hazelton another expert arrived there.
He immediately hunted up Mr. Steele
and told him he was commissioned by
certain capitalists to look into all the
mining propositions in the district and
immediately report upon them. To
save time would Mr. Steele kindly
advise him how to go about it?
"Yes," slowly replied Mr. Steele.
"I'll give you the best steer I can."
"Thanks, awfully."
"The first and most important thing
to do is to stay around here and mix
in. Do this all winter and you will gain
much information. Then go into the
hills and verify the information you have
collected."
"Thanks, but that will take time, Mr.
Steele."
"I was just going to remark when you
interrupted me that by following this
plan you would be able to give a partial
report in about three years' time. But,
mind you, that would be only a beginning."

DISCREDIT GIRL'S STORY
Coroner's Jury Place Murder Blame
on Unknown Person
Newkirk, Okla., Sept. 22.���The coroner's jury that has been tearing
evidence regarding the murder of J.
W. Shephard and his brother, Taylor
Shephard, at the former's home here
last Friday, returned a verdict that
the two men came to their deaths by
blows on their heads by some blunt
instrument delivered by an unknown
party or by unknown persons. Walter
Cassidy, a young man who had been
held in connection with the crime, was
exonerated and released.
The jury did not consider the statement of Ebby Shephard, the daughter
of J. W. Shephard, who said she killed
her father.

ALL LEAVING DAWSON
Another Batch  of  Yukon  Officials
Who Have Been Let Out
There came on the Princess Beatrice
yesterday several officials of Yukon
territory, notably Mr. and Mrs. J.
Sutherland McKay and Mr. and Mrs.
Aime Dugas. The latter is the only son
of Judge Dugas, senior judge of the
territorial court,. He went to the Yukon
in company with his father in 1898 and
has ever since been in government
employ, latterly as chief clerk in the gold
office.
Mc. McKay was one of the intrepid
ones who bulled it through from Edmonton at the great stampede, and was
one of the few who reached their destination. He was mining for the first
year and on the establishment of the
territorial court became assistant clerk,
which position he has held until recently.
On last week's steamer from Skagway
there passed through here S. A. D.
Bertrand, who for about ten years had
been superintendent of public works
and roads in the Yukon. Mr. Bertrand
said while here that he would possibly
return to politics.

CANADA'S INLAND SEA
Canadians of the older provinces and the world at large are gradually awakening
to the fact that Canada's frozen north is the richest prospect and most fertile country
in the whole world. The next few years are going to be great ones of the Dominion
and judging from the newspaper report quoted below one of the possibilities of the
near future is a trip from Prince Rupert across Canada to Europe without touching
Ontario or Quebec:
"A wireless message received by the Secretary of State from the steamer
Grey via Fame Point, on September 3, announced the complete success of the Governor-General's expedition through the Hudson Bay country. The object of the
trip was perhaps best expressed in Earl Grey's own words: "To explode the theory
of the Frozen North." When York Factory, on the western shore of Hudson Bay,
was reached, August 19, the weather was hot enough to make swimming delightful,
and the nights were made glorious by Northern Lights. "The run to Churchill,"
according to the wireless message, "was most enjoyable, no wraps being required
while sitting on deck. At eleven o'clock in the evening we were on deck without
coats or hats. Summer sailing on the Mediterranean of Canada we found as pleasant
as it could have been on the Mediterranean of the Old World. At Churchill's Harbor}
the next morning, we were on deck at six o'clock in pajamas for coffee." On the
run from Churchill to Hudson Strait "the weather was fine, and wraps were superfluous. No ice was seen���not even enough to cool a glass of champagne," On the
26th, coasting down the shore of Baffin Land,several icebergs were seen drifting
in from Davis Strait, but the trip, as a whole, through the bay and the
strait "was as pleasant as a summer sail upon the Atlantic. Certainly had we not known we never would have guessed that we were on what has
been popularly regarded as a Polar Sea. We constantly spoke of it as the Mediterranean. For one hundred and seventy-eight years the Hudson's Bay company's
ships have come in without missing a year, save once."

effort to support her sick mother and
infant sister." The labor unions do not
stand for this" said Rev. McMcLeod.
"They seek what is just. The reason for
that injustice was because there was
not enough of the spirit of Jesus Christ
in the homes of these strikers."
With other dramatic stories told in
true evangelistic manner the pastor
carried home to his hearers the message
of the power of Christ in the homes right
here in Prince Rupert. "I pray" he
said "that the homes of this new city of
Prince Rupert may become the happiest
homes in all Canada���yes, and in all |
the world, because of the spirit of Christ
in them; and that this young Baptist
church here may with the other churches
and agencies doing battle for Christ in
this city, be greatly blessed in the
championship of this cause."

CITY  FATHER'S WOULD
But Couldn't Shoot Venison on
count    of    Weather
Ac-
His Worship the mayor and Aid.
Mobley accompanied city engineer
Davies to the city camp near Woodworth
I Lake one day last week. The object was
to see how A. W. Agnew and his staff
of chain  men, etc.,  were getting along
with the surveys for the city water
works. The trio arrived in the late
afternoon and after a hearty supper of
venison steak and other good things
the city chef is noted for providing a
quiet evening was spent under canvas.
They slept on plank beds and were lost
to the world for several hours. They did
not hear the rain and were greatly
disappointed in the morning to find
everything soaked, and the heavy dew
still falling. The city fathers decided to
stay in camp, but the engineer went out
and examined the work and then came
home.    The other two laid around in
their fireless tent all morning, and in a
neighboring tent, where there was a
fire, all afternoon. They figured on doing some shooting the following day
and rather enjoyed the long day and night
listening to Alex's string of yarns. Next
day however it was still pouring up on
the mountains and the would be venison
hunters got disgusted and started for
home, arriving here with a wet skin and
an empty stomach.    .

Lifeline  Flung   to  Him
Seattle, Sept. 23���Walking off the
end of the Coleman dock, in view of
hundreds of people who were awaiting boats, a man early last evening
plunged into Elliott Bay and refused
to grasp the lifeline flung to him. Before a boat could be manned and sent
to the scene he had disappeared. His
body was recovered. Search by Deputy Coroner Hill revealed, nothing to
establish his identity. I

Winnipeg, Sept. 23.���A Russian woman living a few miles north of the
city gave birth to twins in April. The
husband was greatly offended at the
dual arrival, and, without the consent
of his wife, traded one of them off with
a neighbor for a young pig. A police
constable then stepped into the game
and called the trade off, making the
father of the twins return the pig and
take back the baby. It is understood
that the family will be deported.

It is less than a month since a deputation of lumbermen memorialized Sir
Wilfrid Laurier in favor of a duty on
lumber coming into Canada. Now three
is direct evidence of the dumping of
lumber into the Canadian market from
Washington and Ogeron. Times in the
Western States are not of the best, and
with the falling off of demand for lumber
there, the mills in Washington are
shipping in large quatnities into the
middle Canadian Weet, and selling at
cut prices. The result is a depression
in British Columbia.
Up to early summer, the domestic
market was good, With the rumor of
adverse crop conditions it fell off, and
only the local trade has saved the situation. The price of logs has dropped
to from $7.50 to {8.50, which is low. In
shingles, to put it literally, nothing is
doing. Just before harvest is the dull
season, and the little that would be
offering would be saved to Canadians
if the one industry that is afforded no
protection got the tnoiety that is dde.
The added consideration has been
advanced, that it will help conserve the
timber, for when odd lengths are offered,
the retailers in the North-West, they
could not then threaten that they would
buy in the United States unless they got
them for nothing to sell at regular rates.
British Columbia, in its growing time,
asks for a square deal.���Monetary Times.

Ottawa, Sept. 23.-The political situation in Quebec is causing conster-

CITY CONTRACT LABOR DISPUTE
Situation Remains Unchanged, MeMordie   and    Men   Remain   Firm.
The situation regarding the labor
dispute on S. P. McMordie's contract
on Second avenue remains unaltered
today. Mr. MeMordie after paying off
thirty men on Saturday at 3 p.m. finds
that with the men he engaged to carry
on the work on Saturday morning, he
has sufficient labor to meet the requirements of the contract in its present
stage.
"I had more labor offered than I
have use for" he said this morning.
The city engineer states that Mr.
MeMordie is conducting the work
according to the contract conditions,
and that there will be no interference
regarding the difference between labor
and contractor on the part of the city.
A number of the workmen who were
paid off on Saturday have started on
other jobs the unloading of the steel
steamer affording employment for
several; and several have been offered
work on the G. T. P. construction contracts.

Silver Cup
We unqualifiedly recommend the immediate
purchase of SILVER CUP MINING shares
at 12 1-2 cents per share. The Treasury fund
is fast growing into proportions that will enable the company to proceed on a scale that
is calculated to add great value to the shares.
After this treasury issue is disposed of and as
development proceeds, there will be a lot of
people wanting SILVER CUP stock, and to
secure it they will be obliged to offer a sufficient profit to the early purchaser to induce
him to sell.
Why not be one of the early purchasers
and thereby secure the stock at a price that
will give you the maximum of profit.
