UR WILFRID ADDRESSES OPEN AIR MEETING
ver a thousand residents of Prince
Jpeit and district gathered in front
the Provincial Government buildings
sterday   to  hear Sir  Wilfrid Laurier
\d his distinguished associates deliver
���sir addresses and also to extend to
lose gentlemen   a   hearty    welcome.
was Citizen's Day and the citizens
bended their welcome, the formality
hich marked the Saturday reception
|en the formal addresses were pre-
nted was abandoned.
The crowd, which sat and stood on
L beautiful planked lawn in front of
ie Government Buildings, was largely
imposed of the fair sex who are always
rominent in doing honor to Canada's
���eat sons. The sixty school children
ho were in charge of and trained by
lof. Kaufman, were present and debited the Premier with their singing

For His Constituency While in Parliament.���

of the National Anthem and the Maple
Leaf.
It was just shortly after three o'clock
when Canada's Premier with his associates arrived at the Government
Buildings in company with Mayor Stork.
They had been on a trip up the river by
train, returning via the steamer Skeena
which also ran them over to the beautiful
village of Metlakalta. Sir Wilfrid was
much impressed with the natural beauty
of Prince Rupert's surroundings.
IVERLAND  FROM  EDMONTON
Railway Men Arrived on the
Steamer Operator.
lessrs. Kelliher, Stewart and Lewis
| Made a Successful Trip���Contracts
j Connecting Edmonton and This
(Town to be Let This Fall.
f Chief Engineer Kelliher, Mr. Lewis,
tandson of Mr. Schrieber, and Mr.
(tewart, of Foley, Welch & Stewart,
���rived on the steamer Operator yester-
|jy afternoon to spend a few days in
rince Rupert. They have just come
trough thz overland route from Edmon-
bn following the G. T. P. right of way.
the trip was a long one but it was made
good time  and  travelling  was  as
!omfortable as possible and every day
roduced something new so that the
arty did not suffer from monotony.
Mr. Stewart made an inspection of
Foley, Welch & Stewart's contract from
Edmonton four hundred miles west, and
(then from Fort George to Prince Rupert.
The contracts are both getting along
(very favorably, but there is a shortage
of men in every camp.   The labor is
not in the country and can not be
procured. Several thousand more men
are required and would be paid the
highest wages.
At Fort George the party were joined
by Mr. Van Arsdol who accompanied
them to town. So far as their trip and
its object was concerned the party had
nothing to say. They will await the
arrival of the general manager, C. M.
Hays and party next week.
The eastern contract of Foley, Welch
& Stewart will have reached the summit
this fall and the western contract is
getting on towards Aldemere. The right
of way is cleared that far now. There
are only four hundred miles left between
the Edmonton contract and the Prince
Rupert contract and that work will
be given out this fall. It is a heavy
stretch of country, very much like this
end, although the heaviest work of all
is the first hundred miles from Prince
Rupert. The supplies for the connecting
link will be taken up the Fraser River
by boat, the same as the supplies are
taken up the Skeena, and the contractors
on that line will have to rush the construction of steamers this winter to
be ready for the spring work.
Mayor Stork was chairman on this
occasion and before introducing the
speakers he said in part: "This is indeed a red letter day in the History of
Prince Rupert. We are honored by the
visit of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Premier of
the Dominion, and the party of distinguished statesmen who are with him,
including two cabinet ministers and our
own member, Hon. Wm. Templeman.
We are glad to welcome them in our
midst and glad to welcome our Premier
whose policy of progress is responsible
for Prince Rupert being on the map and
for the construction of the G. T. P.
railway.
"Prince Rupert is a fortunate city as
she is enjoying the best of government
in the Dominion, the Province and in
the municipality. We are also fortunate
in having one of the four known harbors
of the world into which boats of the
largest type can enter and anchor at
any stage of the tide. In future this
city will never ask the government for
money to deepen the harbor. We will
want a great deal for buildings and
improvements.
"We give our guests a right royal
| welcome and I predict that the first
train over the new railway will take a
deputation   from   Prince   Rupert   that
will take Ottawa by storm."
Hon. William Templeman said: I
am highly gratified to be in Prince
Rupert on the first visit of the Premier
of Canada to this new western metropolis. I feel honored in being the representative of a constituency which is
of such a vast extent as Comox-Atlin,
and I am pleased that the minister of
railways, Mr. Macdonald and Mr. Pardee have come to see this northern
district I have the honor to represent.
Probably after having returned to the
east the size, the newness and other
features of the country will remain in
their memories and they will grasp the
need we have for development of better
transportation, better postal facilities,
and other "betters" the government
may accord to us when thus acquainted
with our necessities. I have not the
slightest doubt they will take a deeper
and more intelligent interest in our affairs, and help us to get those smail
things the people of Prince Rupert ask
of their representative.
You did me the honor of electing me
by acclamation less than two years ago
and I have striven  to  do  my  best to
represent you in the city of Ottawa.
(Cheers). At the time of my election
a certain memorandum of requests were
handed to me, and 1 thought they were
of such a nature I could venture to
promise them all. 1 think all these
matters have been completed to your
satisfaction or are on the way to completion. I have not had any additional
requests presented to me, but should
there be any you should not miss this
opportunity but bring them forward before I leave here this evening.
You asked me for a wireless station
and you have obtained one of the best
in the country. You asked for a reduction of telegraph rates. I believed
this to be a proper thing and I obtained
it for you. Then we also have lighthouses all the way to Victoria,   buoys,

WALLACE WIPED OUT BY FIRE
Was Busy   Town   of Five
Thousand Inhabitants.
Forest Fires Swept Down From
Every Point of the Compass.���
Smoke so Dense That Electric
Light* Burned On in Daytime.
Spokane, August 22.���The town of
Wallace, Idaho, which has a imputation
of five thousand people, is believed to
have been completedy wiped out by
forest fires. They swept down upon it
from all four sides and when the telegraph poles were burned down and all
wire connections was cut off there were
fifty fires raging in different streets and
the few buildings left were being dynamited with the hope of checking the
advance of the flames.
Special trains held in readiness took
most of the women and children and no
loss of life has so far been reported.
All day yesterday the smoke was so
dense that early in the morning the
electric light had to be turned on. At
nine o'clock last night the fire chief
ordered   all  the  people  out  of  town.
Half an hour later all the electric lights
were out and left the city in darkness,
all the poles having been burned. The
whole town was at that time ablaze.
It is expected that all the people got out
safely.
The towns of Mullen and Newport
are also surrounded by forest fires and
reported to be doomed.
Spokane, August 22, 12.30 p.m.���It is
now estimated that at least one hundred
perished in the forest fires that destroyed
Wallace and other Idaho towns. One
hunderd and eighty, mostly firefighters,
are hemmed in and reported as missing.
The loss in buildings is over a million
dollars.
Taking refuge in the tunnel of the
War Eagle Mine fifty men were caught
there. They buried their faces in the
mud while the flames burned the clothing
from their backs. Five were smothered
to death. Many were driven mad by
the heat and may not recover their
senses.
In this city there have already
arrived three thousand refugees from
the burned city, many of them in the
night clothes in which they <
lALMOST HALF A MILLION DOLLARS IS THE SUM PAID FOR TIMBER LIMITS
Nearly half afmillion dollars has been
paid for 2,000,000,000 feet of timber
in northern British Columbia and adjacent to Prince Rupert This immense
deal which is the largest timber deal
ever handled in the north country was
put through by Messrs. Leonard and
Reid, real estate brokers and timber
limit brokers of Prince Rupert. The
purchasers are Eastern Canada and
English cajKtalists headed by Wm-
Gamble, barrister, of Ottawa, Ont. The
owner was A. F. Sutherland, of Van.
couver, a millionaire lumber merchant,
who is probably one of the largest
operators in the Dominion.
Highest Grade Timber
This sale involves ninety-three limits
which are situated on the Naas and
K.itsumkalum rivers. The property is
described by the expert cruisers who went
over it as the finest body of compact
timber to be found anywhere in British
Columbia. The timber consists of red
cedar, spruce, larch and western pine.
It stands well on all the limits. The
pedar, especially, is of the highest grade
on the entire Pacific coast. Most of it
runs absolutely clear, for 60 feet without
a blemish or a limb and the trees hold
their size from the trunk up. Some trees
that have been measured have been
found to be 40 feet in circumference at
the stump and standing 60 feet without
a limb.
The spruce is also very high grade
and stands well. It is very tall and clear,
running 80 to 100 feet to the first limbs
and in some cases clearing the remarkable
height of 125 feet without a branch or
blemish. .
The larch is a beautiful wood and is
very tall and clear, running on an average
of 100 feet to the first limbs, and averaging about 5,000 feet per tree.
The western pine is much the same
quality and stands well on an average
of three feet across the stumps and 48
feet to the limbs with very little taper.
Cause of the Growth
This immense tract of high grade
timber is attributed to the fact that the
valleys in which it is found have a
southerly and westerly aspect and are
thoroughly protected from all winds
and enriched from the deports washed
Sown the sides of the very high mount-
ans, and also to the fact   hatches
between the wet and dry belts and has
the benefit of both the warm sunshine

timber is placed at 1,584,000,000 feet.
There are also 500,000,000; feet of second
class timber.
Erect Milling Plant
The plans of the new owners of these
93 timber limits involves the erection
of a milling plant which will cost $200,-
000 and will employ at least 200 men
with another 100 men in the woods
taking out the logs. It will be one of
Prince Rupert's first and largest industries and will place the G. T. P.
terminal city in a new light before the
world. There is no doubt about the plant
coming to Prince Rupert if it is possible
to raft logs down the Skeena at a reason
able figure. This problem is being
looked into as there are some who say
that rafting on the Skeena is not possible while others are just as emphatic
in stating that the big river is very
favorable. If the plant is not built here
it will be erected at the mouth of the
Kitsumkalum river, and this city will
get nearly as much benefit.
The   Market
The new lumbering company will
get their big plant under way as early
as possible. They will cater to the
trade of Prince Rupert and northern
British Columbia first. They will also
cater to the trade of the Orient and
Alaska and many big ships will load at
the Prince Rupert docks with lumber and
timber grown almost within the city's
limits.
Conditions   Favorable
The conditions for logging and carrying
on the lumber business are much more
favorable in this northern district than
in Washington, Oregon or Southern
British Columbia. In the valley of the
Naas and Kitsumkalum rivers there is
a fall of only 25 inches of rain from
March to December, and only 30 inches
snow in January and February, and there
are some hard frosts during the latter
months which are particularly favorable
to logging. On the whole, the proposition looks the most promising of any on
the coast.
How It Was Done
It will be interesting to learn how
Messrs. Leonard and Reid, two young
men, were able to get next to such a
large deal and put it through successfully. Last winter when H. M. Leonard
was in Ottawa on business he was commissioned by Wm. Gamble, representing
Canadian and Old Country capital, to
look up a large timber property upon his
return to Prince Rupert. Mr. Leonard
investigated several properties on the
mainland and on Vancouver Island and
chose these 93 limits on the Naas and
Kitsumkalum rivers as the best thing
he had seen for many a long day. Upon
his submitting the details of the tract of
valuable timber to the prospective
buyers they were at once approved and
an option was taken immediately from
the owner, A. F. Sutherland, of Vancouver, and a telegram was received
yesterday by Mr. Leonard that the
deal wi'i completed and the first instalment paid over in cash, representing
about 25 per cent, of the purchase price.
The purchase price was $490,000.

HOMEWARD BOUND
The Premier's tour into the west has reached its objective point in Prince
Rupert. This evening the party starts on its homeward journey, taking with them
their first impressions of the new west and the new city. While we are all proud of
our infant city and its phenominal progress we trust that the visitors in comparing
it with the older western towns and the aged cities of the East will make due allowance for the handicaps under which we labor. It is hard for the Easterer to overcome
the custom of daily looking out on paved streets and mammoth buildings, but we
can offset that prejudice by the promise that on their next visit we will have better
streets than those in the East.
The present tour of the Premier is probably the greatest trip ever undertaken
by a political leader in Canada. He is accompanied by a wisely selected number of
friends and colleagues���men who can meet and cope with the many different
problems and elements which the party must necessarily contend. The tour has
been a great success politically for the leader of the Liberals. The fact that 18
newspaper men accompany the party, representing the leading papers from ocean
to ocean, is an evidence of the development of country and public interest in the
trip.
PRINCE RUPERT WEATHER
Every visitor to Prince Rupert talks weather. They seem disappointed if it
does not rain, and they imagine that the laughing comments of the citizens is the
spirit of optimism, while as a matter of fact it is simply a pitying contempt of their
misunderstanding. While so many visitors seeking for information are in the city
possibly a few statistics would be acceptable, although local people dislike them.
In the month of July we had 16 clear days, 7 days of light showers and 8 days
rainy weather. The maximum temperature was 81 degrees. The total rain fall was
4.50 inches. For the first 19 days of August we had 12 clear days, three days of
showers and 4 days of rain. The total precipitation was 1.40 inches. At no time does
the temperature take the violent jumps it does in the East. The average in about
60 degrees in the summer. The finest weather comes in the winter when the ther-
momeoter averages a few degrees of frost, and never touches zero; the sun shines
every day and the whole winter produces only a few inches of snow.

CITY OF HISJWLCREATION
\Sir Wilfrid Tells Immense Concourse That Aim of His Ambition Is
To See the Completion of Canada's Own
Transcontinental Railway
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, so long the supreme and able ruler of Canada's
Idestinies, is pleased with Prince Rupert.
I He is proud of it as a Canadian and as
Ithe chief of her statesmen; he is per-
Isonally proud of it because of the part
lie took in its creation. He has shown
���this in every look, act, word and deed
Isince he arrived here on Saturday after-
Uon. Beneath the meretricious glamour
M its holiday attire he could readily
Wiscern the sturdy foundations of great
business enterprise; he 'found our pioneers just the cheery, energetic men his
iouI delights to meet. His heart went
lout to them.
Our people are proud of the receptior.
fchey gave to the great statesman.
Post of them knew Sir Wilfrid Laurier
merely as a name of fame. They find
bim a man with all the best attributes
pf virile manhood; open and frank,
pasy to greet, receptive and sympathetic
a comrade.   He has talked with any
nd asked questions of all. In this way
he has grasped the situation and from
pis gratified surprise at what he found
here is no doubt that, as was so cun-
Jingly suggested in the French address,
'rince Rupert in the future will have
|he special solicitude of his government.'
Coming to an entirely new town, an
utpost on the skirt of civilization, so
speak, our visitor must have been
npressed with the large flotilla of boats
|iat met him at the entrance to the
arbor. The government steamer, Kes-
frel, carried the invitation committee
nd their friends; the Prince Albert
las crowded with those invited; the
falcon and other boats, among them
pout thirty motors of large and small
fgree, all were crowded with merry
��ple in gala attire and holiday mood.

Canadians; and at the phrase that
when the Canadian cruisers visited this
superb port there would be plenty of
French-Canadian mariners ready to fly
to the defence of the empire Sir Wilfrid
enthused and said, "tres bien," two or
three times in succession. Also when the
hope was breathed that after this visit
of Sir Wilfrid and his ministers Prince
Rupert would have the special solicitude
see by my white locks; but if Providence
spares me for three years, by the grace
of Providence and the will of the
Canadian people, I will undertake to
demonstrate the wisdom of our enterprise by taking a trip from Halifax to
Prince Rupert, (cheers) Pleased and
proud that before I die I can thus see
the completion of the dream of my life.
Then I could die happy and feel that
my life had  not  been  lived in vain.

colors. Next came another Indian,
Captain Edenshaw, who read a long
address that was typewritten.
The Prime Minister's Reply
Sir Wilfrid almost immediately responded, but he must have listened very
attentively and have a wonderfully
retentive memory, for in this reply he
referred to the principal points in each
of the addresses, and in most felicitious
phrase. In a manner of remarkable
grace and ease, and as if he were speaking
to a small coterie of intimate friends, he
said:
"Mr. Mayor, fellow citizens of Prince
Rupert, Daughters of the Empire,
fellow countrymen of my own race, fellow countrymen of the Indian race, I
wish it were in my power to adequately
express to you my sentiments as I feel
them; those sentiments of gratitude
which All my heart for the reception you
extend to me and to the friends who
accompany me.
"I thank you for the sentiments expressed in the different addresses with
which you greet me. They make me
prouder than ever of being a Canadian

of this, (cheers) Prince Rupert is the

and has the more reason to be proud of
her connection with the Mother Country
than have other Canadian cities.
tends.
! In Chatham Sound there was a lazy
pell on the ocean, and the boats gently
ivayed to the music while waiting the
ppearunce of the Prince George above
pe horizon.     Soon   a   waving   black
jbbon was seen against the background
. fleecy white clouds that bordered the
lear blue, and a ripple of excited expectancy spread among the people on
jie   boats.   Gallantly   on   came   the
Iremier-bearer,   to   be   greeted   with
Jishty shouts as soon as within hail.
These shouts were renewed when the
Prince George arrived at her dock.   The
payor and members of the reception
ornmittee went aboard and were for-
|>%  presented   to   Sir   Wilfrid,   the
Proud   of   Prince   Rupert
"I need not tell you how it was with
anxiety that I started on this journey,
the end of which was Prince Rupert.
(cheers) It was because I think I can
claim that in the building of this city
the government of which I am the head
has had some considerable share in it.
It is the last great work we have undertaken and will possibly be our last
achievement in the endeavor to rivet
together   all   our   country,   from   the
teran'diplomsthwiMacheeiv'word Atlantic t0 the Pacific- and ala�� the,
great empire of which we are proud of
being a part, (cheers)
"I  am surprised  to  see  so  large  a
gathering here and that you have such
a population already;  a population not
all. Then  a move was made for
i government buildings.
Presentation of Addresses
After a number of introductions, to
of which Sir Wilfrid responded in
pat seemed to be a customary cheery
lu'iner, the mayor, without any preface
lead the address of the city which was
primed jn Saturday's issue, referring
hculentally to the address on the scroll
V mooseskin which the premier had
|lready examined and admired.
The mayor next introduced Mrs.
f-ffiert, who read the address of the
J!��ighters of the Empire, of which she
1 '-he president.
Following this the mayor expressed
���jhe regrets of the city that Lady Laurier
Vus not present in a gallant manner and
"eat, brief speech, and tendered the
dutiful album containing a wonderful

Presented on behalf of the city as a

'���mrier is held by the citizens.
Monsieur   Segouin   was   next   called
coming from the body to which she
belongs, of the bond which binds us
together: that we are all subjects of
His Majesty King George the Fifth,
(cheers) It is our wish and pleasure to
proclaim ourselves British subjects because we know, as British subjects, that
British institutions are the best ever
designed by man for all races, (cheers)
It guarantees to all an equal share of
freedom, of justice and of tolerance,
(renewed cheers)
Though Not of British Blood
"To the men of French origin who
are British subjects: It is with me a
sentiment of pride that though myself
not of British blood I have been a
blessing to the race to which I belong
by at all times proclaiming the superiority of British institutions. Under
these the men of all races and nationalities, and our friends the aborigines I
we have with us today, all must feel
that they have that full measure of
freedom and of justice which is the j
pride of the British crown. The word
of the Crown is sacred, and the rights
of all will be protected by the government of the land, (cheers)
The Tribute to Lady Laurier
"In regard to the other address that
has  been  presented  I  must say  how
much I appreciate the kind words and
the  kindly  gift  to  my  wife (cheers)
whose  health  did  not  permit  her  to I
accompany me as far as Prince Rupert, i
In  her  day she  was  a good  soldier,
when I went she came;  and if in the j
same condition of health as I am myself she would be by my side today.
But I am sorry to say she has grown
old and you know that is a great mistake.   But I hope no one will blame me
for that.   It is the unfortunate fate of
us all.
"It will be my great pleasure and'
happiness to convey to her these senti-	
ments expressed by you on her behalf,
and this token of your kindly regard   to find from your address that you are
for her. (cheers) as proud of that title as I myself am.

regrets that I cannot express them to
the extent I feel them; but such as
they are in my heart I give them to
and a kiss. In face of the big mooseskin
on which was burned the civic address,
he said in his cheerful way: "Mr.
Mayor, that is an address of which I
am proud. I shall hang it in my parlor
at Ottawa and whenever you come to
see me I shall point to it with pleasure."
And talk about there not being sufficient police to manage so large a
crowd! Sir Wilfrid will never know
there was not a hundred police unless
some one tells him. Nothing so universally courteous was ever seen in so
large assemblage. It demonstrated that
progress in civilization to which every
man becomes a peace officer unto himself. Prince Rupert crowds are certainly
the limit in good behavior and civic
pride.

It is my honor to have my name connected
Mh it at its foundation.
"One of the chief advantages which
the new transcontinental has, is thc
fact that it has rolled back the map of the
country by at least 1000 miles. Beyond
the mountains on the Pacific Coast
are lands which for agricultural wealth
cannot be equalled by tho best fields of the
i".rlhwest.
"Another reason to be proud of the
I Grand Trunk Pacific is that it is the
best line on the continent. Prince
Rupert claims to have one of the best
harbors in the world. The chairman has
"aid that it was one of the four best, but
1   take  exception   to   this   statement,
for he did not even mention the harbor
of Quebec. I think, however, that Prince
Rupert's harbor is the equal of that of;
the capital of the French province, and j
that it is destined to to be the last of
the great harbors of the world.
"I have never had any doubt of the '
final outcome of the policy of the government, but I have been anxious to see
with my own eyes the work which has
been done.   From what I have seen of
this city and my tours around it during
the last two days, I have now no doubt
that Prince  Rupert is destined to  be
one of the great cities of the continent!
(applause).       Not only from the fact'
that here is the terminus of the great
transcontinental,   but   also   from   the!
great commanding position which nature
has given her.
"She is the shortest route from Europe
to the Orient. The trade with the Orient
is bound to enormously increase during
the next few years. The chief reason
which contributes to this is the fact
that the population of the Orient, j
consisting of untold millions, has been
dormant, but now the great nations of
China and Japan are awakening from
their long sleep of centuries and getting
into the western civilization."
Sir Wilfrid went on to show what
might be our prospects for developing
a trade in articles of our manufacture
which are now unused by the Orientals.
He cited the case of tea, which is now
used on every table from the hut of the
poor to the palaces of the rich. It was
found in all Oriental countries and 200
years ago brought to Europe and was
made a staple article of that commerce.
Rice was now the staple food of the
Oriental countries but it did not contain
half as much nourishment as does wheat.
As was the case with the working up of
the tea trade, so might the wheat be
introduced into the Orient, and thus a
greater commerce than ever would
spring up from this port. He could
forsee the day when the export of wheat
from both Vancouver and Prince Rupert
harbors would necessitate the erection
of gigantic elevators at both ports, not
only for the Oriental trade, but also for
the trade with the continent of Europe.
With one exception Prince Rupert,
he said has been the first city which he
had come upon during his present tour,
which has not asked for many appropriations from the Ottawa Government.
He had heard it stated, however, that
there were fifteen lights needed on the
route up from the Island. "Well," said
Sir Wilfrid," if the people of Prince
Rupert want those fifteen lights the
government of Canada is rich enough
to give them to you."
"The tour of the Dominion has been
one of the greatest revelations to both
myself and my colleagues. We have
met men of all nations, and yet have
found none dissatisfied with their lot
in the Dominion. For it is here that all
men are brothers. Here it is we find
institutions the superiors of which cannot

We do not live in a republic, but under
a crowned monorchy, and it is under this
we find the truest freedom. I left the

and here, just as much as any of the

prouder places on my route have I
found that energy, activity, enterprise
and brotherly spirit, which is the only
means of building up this great country,
in a larger degree than elsewhere.
"The east is not jealous of the west.
Your success is our success, your prosperity is our prosperity. I was proud
when 1 left the east, but now I am
prouder than ever. I was an optimist
when I left Ottawa, but now I am an
enthusiast."
E. M. MacDonald, M. P. for Pictou,
spoke generally of the transcontinental
railway and the obstacles that were
placed in the way of the government
taking up the project by members of the
opposition. Members of the Conservative
party had opposed it as a wild dream,
but men of that stamp, he was pleased
to say, did not dominate the Conservative
party. But the Liberal leader had the
keen vision to see all that this great
railway meant in the development of
Canada as a nation, and the nation
would applaud him when the people
shook hands in congratulation from the
Atlantic to the Pacific over what would
be the shortest line from sea to sea across
this continent.
Then, when the great leader proposed
last year that Canada should have a
navy, what did we hear from the gentlemen on the other side. They absolutely
went back on everything they had said
the year before, and there was not a man
in Canada today who could tell where
the conservative party stood on the
question of a Canadian navy or upon
any other national question.
In a brilliant elogium of the premier
he sketched the rise of Great Britain as
a nation, formed by conflicting and alien
elements, and said it had been the mission
of the premier in taking this tour to
preach the doctrine of a greater Canada
and to bring all elements into accord
upon their allegiance to the British crown.
It was to inculcate these grand ideas
that the leader had gone all over Canada
and one result would be that his belief
in Canada, his trust in her glorious I
destiny, and his high aims for her future
would bring in sympathetic touch the |
men of every section and unite them all
in his pur|>oses from sea to sea.
Hon. George P. Graham, minister of
railways, had a good deal to say regarding the women and children. 'I am
greatly enamoured of the crop you raise
in the West" were his first words, "I
see they are waving the British flag.
So long as they remain under the flag
we can hope to become the greatest
nation of the world. They start in right
in waving the British flag."
He next facetiously remarked upon
the scarcity of women, saying there
did not seem to be enough to go round.
As they sat before him it reminded him
of the darky sermon on the day of
judgment, when sheep should be segregated on the right hand and the goats
on the left. He congratulated the men
sitting on his right and commisserated
with the men on his left(laughter) He
noticed that the ladies wore in Prince
Rupert the same sized hats as in other
cities they had visited. Therefore he
pitied the men on his right and extended
his congratulations to the men on his
left.
But he must say that the woman who
left her comparatively palatial home to
accompany a man to a new country
and put up with the many inconveniences
for a time, was a queen in her own realm,
and the country owed her much for its
consequent   development,   (cheers).
Mr. Graham then gave a description
of the great railway, technically touching
upon the masterly engineering that had
reduced the grade so that one locomotive
upon it was able to haul double what it
could on any other railway, and sketching the country between here and
Moncton, N. B. It was a mistake, he
said, to say so much of this railway to de-
velope the West only; it would develope
the two provinces of New Brunswick
and Quebec, and the product of those
two old provinces, after the completion of
railway, would astonish the world.
The completion of the road would
mean a reduction of freight rates because
more could be hauled cheaper on this
road than any other and because it was
the shortest route from sea to sea.
But it was not the railway alone that
had led to this trip. They desired to
find out the needs of the people of the
west, so that they would better be able
to legislate wisely for them. They were
working out on this northern half of
the continent the destinies of a great
nation. "We are a young nation, and if
our young men of the west will do their
duty and stand shoulder to shoulder
the west will not only be the pride of
Canada but the envy of the world."
The school children then sang the
national anthem and cheers were given
for the king and for Sir Wilfrid. The
premier and his party were then escorted
to the Prince George, where they held
informal receptions until the steamer
pulled out shortly after eight o'clock,
amid rousing cheers. Owing to the early
hour of leaving the smoker to be given
by the Liberal party in the Empress
theatre had to be abandoned.
SPIRIT  OF  THE  WEST
Extracts   From   the   Speech   of   the
Premier Saturday Evening
Entertained by Wanderers
The Hon. Geo. P. Graham, Hon. Wm.
Templeman, Senator Bostock, Senator
Gibson, Senator Roy, Mr. Pardee and
several other members of the Premier's
party, were entertained at the Wanderers' Club informally on Sunday evening and on Monday afternoon. The
guests intimated that Prince Rupert's
social attractions had progressed about
as rapidly as its more practical development.
It would be a very sorry fellow who
would not be jolly with such before me.
I have no reason to find fault with life.
I have good' health and better spirits.
I have been accused of being an
optimist and I have never denied the
impeachment, I will be a greater optimist when I get home.
The air of the west is infectious,
and I have caught some of the atmosphere.
I believe in the country more than I
did five weeks ago. I believed in it seven
years ago when I brought forth the
project of the national transcontinental.
A strong nation should not be bound
by one railway and now I believe there
is business for a third transcontinental.
British Columbia in itself could make,
a great country. Its fisheries, its minerals
and its lumber might employ millions.
It is sufficient for a kingdom in itself
but its policy should be to expand to
the Atlantic. We want to bind our
country the West with the East and the
East with the West. The G. T. P. is
the first link in that policy.
I want to see the completion of the
G. T. P. Nothing could give me more
gratification. It will be completed in
two or three years at the most.
The West is strong and enthusiastic
You are all Napoleons; you do not think
anything is impossible. This is the spirit
in which I meet you.
Meet   the   Council
R. Brutinel of the Tsimpsean Light
and Power Co will appear before the
city council tonight and outline the
plans of the company. As stated in
these columns last week the Tsimpsean
Light and Power Co intend to get their
gas plant under construction at once.
Sewer    Work    Stopped
"What's the matter with your gang
that they are not working today?" asked
the Optimist of contractor MeMordie
who is building the sewer.
"There is no pipe to go on with,"
replied Mr. MeMordie. "It has been
ordered by the council some weeks
I understand but it has not got here yet
and I cannot go on with it."

night, the balance of their stock of
dry goods being sold to Messrs. McCormick and McLaughlin, and the

to wind up thc business. They carried
a very large stock of general merchandise
and did a large and profitable business.

MAKE   BIG   MONEY
Growing    Strawberries    in    Lakelse
and   Kitsumkalum   Valleys
To the Editor of the Optimist:
Dear Sir:-In reference to your article
in Saturady's issue re the strawberries
in Lakslse valley allow me to say:
There is probably no land in Canada
that is so rich and so favorable to fruit
growing as the Lakelse and Kitsumkalum Valleys. They lie along the G.T.P.
railway on both sides of the Skeena
river and are just 80 miles east of
Prince Rupert. The valleys are about
20 miles wide and 40 miles long and
every acre could be put under cultivation and fruit and vegetables grown
with great success.
A very valuable feature of those
lands are that the strawberry season
comes on after all the berries in other
parts of Canada and the United States
are gone and the demand for them will
always be greater than the supply and
necessarily the price will be the highest.
The quality of the fruit grown thus far
is much superior to the southern berries
and they are firmer and will keep
longer.
In order to assist the new settlers,
the provincial government is establishing experimental farms ih the district
and these will be of great assistance and
will be watched with interest. The
land in those valleys can be had today
at from $10 per acre up and in five years
it is safe to say, the same land will
sell at considerably over $100 per acre.
This is the time to get in and purchase
land and plant the vines which will
return a profit next summer.
Yours truly,

PLEASED WITH
OUR RAILWAY
SIR WILFRID AND PARTY GO UP
THE LINE
Expresses His Satisfaction to General
Superintendent Mehan in High
Terms���Came Back by Steamer.
In response to the invitation of General Superintendent Mehan and Superintendent McNicholl, on behalf of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Company, Sir
Wilfrid and all his party boarded the
train this morning for a run up the line.
Others were invited to join them but
Mr. Mehan was unable to make the
invitation general, as he would have
liked to do, because there was only his
own private car and one other car
available.
The party were taken along the line
to a point opposite Port Essington and
then to the Iverness cannery, which
they inspected. There they became the
guests of Foley, Welch & Stewart and
took luncheon on the steamer Skeena.
Meanwhile the steamer visited Metlakatla and other interesting points in the
neighborhood.
Sir Wilfrid expressed to Mr. Mehan
his supreme satisfaction in riding over
the rails of the transcontinental railway
the construction of which had been one
of the ambitions of his life. Mr. Graham, minister of railways, joined in
praising the substantial character of the
work and paid both the contractors and
the railway company many high compliments.
Police Court
Prince Rupert has established a new
record. Three days of holiday and
celebration and not one drunk or criminal of any kind to decorate the police
court afterward. Enquiry at the police
station at noon today revealed the fact
that not a single arrest nor a single complaint had been received since Thursday
of last week. This is a great record and
Chief McCarvoll and his staff deserve
great credit. No doubt the new uniforms of the police had something to
do with the good order maintained.
Police Uniforms
The police appeared at the docks on
Saturday afternoon all togged out in
their new uniforms and they looked
pretty nifty too. The chief only had a
hat, trousers and vest. His coat was not
finished but will be in a day or two.

Crippen and Mile Le Neve on board,
is now headed for England. The prisoners
were taken from their cells at eight
o'clock Saturday morning and rushed
aboard a small steamer. The liner left
at four in the morning and awaited them
at Sillery.
Mile. Le Neve wore a wig to hide her
cropped hair and expressed satisfaction
at once more wearing women's clothes.
The legal proceedings took but a short
time upon the production of the necessary papers from England and upon Dr.
Crippen's willingness to return to England to stand his trial.

NO   COAL   AT   JUNEAU
Yet   Millions   of  Tons   Lying   Held
Untouched   By   Legislation
Juneau, August 18.���With millions of
tons of coal lying untouched in its
vicinity, Juneau is in the grip of a coal
famine. The steamship companies have
completely exhausted the retail supply,
and the situation is becoming acute.
The city has a small supply, and is
selling small amounts to those who are
in greatest need of it. There have been
complaints, however, that the city
officials have not been impartial in apportioning the coal. Some charge that
only those who are friendly to the
administration are able to obtain fuel
from the city's supply.

LOYAL FRENCH
HONOR PREMIER
GUEST AT INFORMAL LUNCHEON
AT NEW KNOX HOTEL
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Attended High
Mass and Then Joined His Fellow
Countrymen.���Address of Welcome
Presented.���Premier's Reply.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was accompanied
by D. Sigouin and 0. Besner, as representatives of the French Canadians
in Prince Rupert, to High Mass in the
Roman Catholic church yesterday morning, where Rev. Father Hartman preached a special sermon. Sir Wilfrid took
great interest in the service and was glad
to be with people from his native province. After the service an informal
reception was held at the priest's house
where a number of ladies of the congregation were presented to the premier.
After church Sir Wilfrid was accompanied to the New Knox Hotel,
which is conducted by 0. Besner and
Madame Artaud, to meet the French
Canadians at an informal family luncheon. About forty were present and
the affair was thoroughly enjoyable.
The Premier expressed his pleasure to
many and talked to all like an old friend.
It was a gathering of the clan with Sir
Wilfrid as father, or head of the family.
The hotel was very nicely decorated
and the dining room was particularly
well arranged. The tables were in the
shape of a horseshoe and every chair
was filled. The menu was well chosen
and the good things enjoyed. Rev.
Father  Hartman  opened with prayer.
After luncheon D. Sigouin presented
the following address:- "Sir Wilfrid
Laurier,on behalf of the French Canadians
I thank you for the honor of your presence at this little family gathering.
Many of us have never met you before.
Some have come many miles to have the
pleasure of meeting you, and when they
return to their homes again they will
have the gratification of telling their
countrymen that you will carry back to
the Province of Quebec the message of
our most sincere sympathy and devotion."
In reply Sir Wilfrid remarked :-"Rev.
Father Hartman and Mr. Sigouin, it
is with much pleasure I attend your
family gathering on this most cordial
occasion, and when I return to my
province I will tell my people that in
yonder great west there are many
French Canadians who have not forgotten their language or devotion to the
Empire and their Mother Land. Now,
I will ask you as your guest, to fill your
glasses, I do not partake of this very
often, but I feel obliged to ask you to
join me in the toast to our host and
hostess."
The balance of the luncheon hour was
spent in informal chat and when Sir
Wilfrid was leaving he expressed his
pleasure again at being present and
particularly to meet his host and hostess
and the French Canadians of Prince
Rupert.

THOUSANDS OF
TONS OF HAY
HARVESTED NEAR ALDERMERE

That There Has Been Little Rain
���Three Thousand Tons of Timothy
A   Welcome    Rain
The rain Saturday night and on Sunday
was most welcome. It was the first of
two weeks and the town water supply
had suffered greatly. It is now as good
as ever and the engineers department
will be able to get the new pipe line run
up to the other branch of the creek
before the present supply is exhausted
again.
CAPE    TOWN    ELECTIONS
Seven Members Are Again Returned
By   Acclamation
(Special to the Optimist)
Capetown, August 22.���Saturday was
the day of general election and Jameson,
Fisher, Sauer, Hertzog, Graaf and Smart
were all elected by acclamation. Dr.
Jameson, in a speech which he made soon
after the result of the polling was announced for the other candidates, urged
the Unionists to combine on the racial
question, which he fortold would be
as much an issue before the people
as it ever had  been. |��
It is estimated that Premier Botha
will have a majority of twelve in the
new house.

Edward McLeod, who has a contract
to take out 65,000 ties near Aldermere
for the G. T. P., has been in town for
several days and he states that many
thousands of tons of hay have been cut
and put up in the valleys in the Aldermere
district this year and at big prices.
There were 3000 tons of timothy alone
and there has hardly been a drop of
rain all season. But the soil and the
climate are very favorable for hay. The
same applies to oats. There will be a
bumper crop this year, and crops of
all kinds will be heavy in the interior.
For mixed farming and small fruits
there is nothing in the Dominion that
can surpass the valleys lying between
Prince Rupert and Fort George. The
farmers who are now there will make big
money although they are still clearing
their land and in most districts would
not even expect any returns at such an
early stage. Another year or two will
see a big increase in the population of
the fertile valleys.

Some   Bad   Boys
There are a few bad boys in Prince
Rupert that need looking after. On
Sunday three of them were seen taking
the boquets of flowers from the Indian
Arch in front of the City Hall. If the
flowers were of any use to them no one
would mind, but in a few minutes the
blossoms were destroyed and thrown
away. There is another class of hoodlums who take a delight in plastering
mud and muskeg all over newly painted
buildings and signs and on windows.
The effect is not at all artistic.
