| Simple But Imprea.ive Programme���Eloquent Tributes  to  Memory of
King Edward by Bishop Du Vernet and
Father  Bunoz.
As representative a body of British
subjects as could be gathered anywhere
in the British dominions, in every centre
and corner of which similar meetings
were being Weld yesterday, was that
which congregated at the Empress
theatre to take part in memorial services on the day of the funeral of King
Edward. Every seat was occupied,
and as many as could crowd in stood
during the whole programme at the rear
and in the aisles. It was representative
of all classes, all creeds and all nationalities resident in the city, young and
old. rich and poor. All the churches
of the city were represented���Right
Rev. F. H. Du Vernet and Rev. T. Ci
Des Barres of the Episcopalian; Rev.
A. M. Rqss of the Presbyterian; Rev.
C. F. Connor of the Methodist and Rev.
Father E. M. Bunoz of the Roman
Catholic, and all took part in the exercizes. The newly elected mayor and
aldermen occupied the front row of
seats as official representatives of, the
city o! Prince Rupert.
The programme was simple but impressive, and all present wore the air of
those mourning the loss by death of
one near ancl dear. It was opened by
that beautiful classic, so peculiarly
appropriate to such occasions, "Lead
Kindly Light." This was given by the
united choirs, Miss Froud, organist of
the Presbyterian church, accompanying.
All stood with bowed heads as if about
a bier, while Rev. T. C. Des Barres
read the opening verses of the burial
service, beginning with the Christian's
hope, "I know that my Redeemer
liveth." The fifteenth Psalm was next
read, verse by verse alternately by the
minister and the people.
Rev. A. M. Ross delivered an extempore prayer for those bereaved by
the death of the British monarch,
which was followed by the anthem,
Come unto Me." The lesson of the day
was read by C. F. Connor, and the
congregation sang, "Nearer my God to
Thee."
There were two memorial addresses,
one hy Bishop du Vernet and the other
by Father Bunoz. The former said,
in part:
v\ e have met together to-day, as
citizens of Prince Rupert, on a most
solemn and memorable occasion. We
have met together to-day for the first
'jme as an organized city, with duly
elected mayor and council, who are
Present with us. We have met together

nationalities in our midst; all creeds

for
^^^^^^^^^    The meeting is
��ne common purpose; to pay our
tribute  of
respect  to  the late   King
Edward and to lay the wreath of immortelles of Prince Rupert upon the royal
coffin.
"fry thousand British soldiers were
j���ng the streets of London this morn-
��igi standing shoulder to shoulder,
rnis meeting I take as emblematic
of what is happening all over the Brit's" Empire to-day. Millions of British
objects are doing as we are doing, standing shoulder to shoulder in loyal reverence as^ the furneral cortege of our be-
��ved King moves onward to the grave.
His lordship began at this point his
eulogium of Edward the Peacemaker,
reviewing international events and the
monarch's influence over them after
he came to the throne. It was not granted to King Edward to have a long reign,
said the bishop, only nine months
and three years and fourteen days.
But this short reign in the first decade
of the twentieth century would probably be more memorable than the sixty
years of his illustrious mother.
While it was true t hat we have a constitutional monarchy, and the power
of the monarch is constitutionally limited, no one knew better how to appreciate this more than King Edward.
And it is equally true that, in a perfectly constitutional manner, he wielded a tremendous influence over the
affairs of the nation, and extended that
influence with the benign blessings of
peace to other nations. In conclusion,
he said that when we think of the horror
of war King Edward did so much to
prevent, one cannot but feel fully
justified in applying to Edward VII.,
the seventh beatitude, "Blessed are the
peace makers, for they shall be called
the children of God."
"Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me," sung by
a male quartette, prefaced the able
address of Rev. Father Bunoz, of which
space permits of but a brief synopsis.
Very seldom, he said, had the death of
a monarch produced such a general
manifestation of grief and regret all
over the world. Four hundred millions
of his subjects, although separated by
space, race, language, customs and
creeds, from the Ganges to the Arctic
ocean and from the Antipodes to the
British isles, there was one common
general feeling of sorrow and lamentation of the loss of King Edward to the
British Empire.
The father said he would not quote
from the many volumes of praise of the
dead monarch that had been written
in the past two weeks. He endorsed all
of them. King Edward's funeral oration,
the only one, was that he was a true
king. He was not a king to some, and
left others in the cold; not of one class
but of all classes; not of one creed but of
all creeds. He expected and received
the loyalty of all, because he respected
the rights and feelings of all.
As an instance of the dead monarch's
religious tolerance and broad-mindedness
the father, as a Catholic, referred to
King Edward's reply to the cable of
Catholic bishops assembled in Quebec.
In this reply he said he would protect
the religious liberty of all his subjects.
"Let us say," concluded the reverend
father, " 'God save the king' applied
to his immortal soul; let us say 'God save
the King' to our new ruler, to whom
millions of catholics all over the world
are to-day renewing their most devoted
loyalty."
Bishop Du Vernet pronounced the
benediction. Miss Froud played the
"Dead March" in Saul on the organ, the
assembly standing with bowed heads
during the recital, and the singing of
the National Anthem closed the interesting , but at all times, solemn and
sorrowing services.
Vancouver, May 20���The jury which
heard Charles Heaton's case, found
| him guilty of assault upon Detective
McKenzie yesterday. Heaton was in
a resort in Prince Rupert on a Sunday
night when Detective McKenzie entered. A wordy war ensued, and
the detective drew a revolver and
shot Heaton through the fleshy part of
the leg. Heaton then attacked McKenzie and gave him a severe beating. As
a result both men were laid up several

There was a burst of laughter and
cheering at these two innocent puns,
and the mingled laughs and cheers were
again and again renewed.

When Mr. Manson was called for
that he would be there and respond
seemed to be entirely unexpected on
the part of the audience, and his appearance was, therefore, all the more
heartily applauded. He first offered
his sincere congratulations to Mayor
Stork, and after other compliments of
a statesmanlike character, he went on

; to speak iii the order they stood upon
j the election returns. He then called
upon Mayor Stork, who received a remarkable demonstration. But the tumult did not seem to "rattle" the newly-
elected ruler of the city at all, and at the
first break in the victorious applause
his voice rose clear and free from tremor.
It was evident that he had faced large
crowds before. As he spoke, his radiant
features fell into more dignified lines
as if he had already assumed the mayoral
mantle:   He said:
Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen,���It is not my intention to make a
speech to night. You could scarcely
expect it of me. But I can, and I feel
that I must, say my thanks and express
my appreciation of the confidence you
have shown in me to-day. 1 can only
thank you for returning me as the first
mayor of Prince Rupert. That, in after
years, when our city has grown to the
noblest of proportions, I shall always
look back with pride and with gratitude
to   you.
I have also to thank you for putting
into office an able body of councillors.
We asked for a whole ticket, but we
didn't get it. But we did get a large
portion of it and I have confidence in
stating my opinion that the men you
have selected as the first alderman of
your city will do you credit.

Having entered the contest and fought
a clean fight, for which my opponent
generously gives me credit, I have nothing to regret. Before taking my seat
I would like to present to your mayor
a volume containing the incorporation
acts of the city of Prince Rupert.
These Acts were printed at my request
when attending the house last winter,
and they are presented with the compliments of the provincial government.
I have not yet received the final returns
as to the election of aldermen, so I
place in the hands of your mayor, copies
to be handed to these gentlemen elected.
I wish to express hearty thanks
to the many friends who have assisted
me in this campaign, and today that I
appreciate their efforts just as much as
though I had been elected.
Frank Mobley was next called upon
and said he could scarcely find words to
express his appreciation of the honour
conferred upon him, at the same time
he fully realized the work that honor
imposed upon him. He would endeavor
to finish his term in a manner that
would retain the good opinion shown
of him, but was afraid he had been overestimated.

His Worship
Alfred Stork, the successful candidate
for the mayoralty, was caught "with all
his blushing honors thick upon him," in
front of the assessor's office, waiting
for the official returns of the vote on
aldermen. When asked what he considered to have been the particular issue that
had decided the election he replied unhesitatingly and with emphasis���"The
desire of the people to have real home
rule. For the past two years the city
has been governed from Victoria, through
an agent, and no matter what that
agent did, whether good or bad for the
city, there was a natural resentment
against this form of government. The
feeling was similar to that you fellows
showed in the Klondyke where you
kicked and kicked against councilmen
appointed from Ortawa until you got
a wholly elective council. That sentiment, in my opinion, was the strongest
point in our campaign here. There were
other questions-of course, but this I
look upon as the crucial one upon which
the contest was really decided."
What   the   Boys   Say.
F. H. Mobley���They overestimated
my ability, but I will try to qualify
it.
F. Bowness���G. W. is the best sport
of all. He comes up with a smile no
matter what happens.
G. R. Naden���It is a declaration for
home rule. I think Prince Rupert is to
be congratulated on the personnel
of the first council.
W. P. Lynch���It does no harm to
discuss things. It awakens public in-
teest and leads to study of public affairs
which must result in good.
F. G. Dawson���I am tickled with the
result.
V. W. Smith���We fought a clean campaign. I am ready to stand upon the
platform   upon   which  I  was  elected.
T. D. Pattullo���The result is in the
best interests of the city. Now we ought
to all get in an boost it along. This is
the time to be magnanimous.
G. W. Arnott���Although defeated I
am satisfied to accept the verdict. It
was a great success for the ticket. Those
of us who were not on still have the best
interests of the city at heart. I wish to
thank my supporters and to say that
I hope to live to fight again.
H.   Douglas���You   never   can   tell.
T. Y. McKay���There are more tin
horns and gentlemen of easy virtue than
white men in Prince Rupert.
Crip���The indescribable effect of the
proximity of Halley's Comet must have
turned the heads of the people.
Bob Ross���Poor Pack!
Patrick Isaac���The only way I could
save my face was to offer to bet ten
thousand and I was scared Mac was going to take me.
H. H. Clarke���Aol I have to say is
that it is all over. Let's get down to
business and all work to make Prince
Rupert what it ought to be���the best
city on the Coast.
I want to thank all that voted for me,
and if at any time I can do anything to
help the city, all they have to do is to
say the word.
M. M. Stephens���I am glad it is all
over as I am nearly all tired out. I am
thankful to thc people for their support,
but would rather they had elected G. R.
Naden. As far as I am concerned, every
pledge on behalf of the ticket will be
carried out.
Dr. Mclntyre���Now that the smoke
of battle has cleared away, and Prince
Rupert's first election is a matter of
history, I look for great improvements
in the near future. The greatest interest
was in the Mayoralty contest, and even
the most enthusiastic supporters of
Mayor Stork did not expect such a
victory However, it must be said of
Mr. Manson that he put up a clean
fight, and his manly attitude on the
platform last night in presenting the
newly elected Mayor and Aldermen
with neat copies of our 'Incorporation
Act, Municipal Clauses Act & etc. has
already wiped out the stigma of defeat,
and marks the member for the Skeena
District a gentleman in the highest
sense of the word.  We can ill afford to
lose the services of an able and experienced man like Geo. R. Naden, but
then our loss is his gain. On the whole
we have a good live Council, and results
will follow. Henceforth you can keep
your eye on Prince Rupert and watch
us grow
A. R. M. Barrow���I am indeed glad
to be elected and will do my best to
serve the the city. It is good to see such
a strong feeling of "bury the hatchet"
among the candidates. Had I been elected
with Mr. Manson as mayor, I would have
worked in perfect harmony with him.
Court Mourning
Hon. Chas. Murphy, Secretary of State
for Canada.makes the following announcement in the Official Gazette of British
Columbia: 'Court mourning will last
until May Sixth, nineteen hundred and
eleven. It is expected that the public
will wear decent mourning from May
twelfth.   Duration not fixed yet.'
A  Public  Holiday.
The first act of Mayor-elect Stork
was to declare May 20th, a public holiday in memory of our late King Edward
VII, whose funeral took place yesterday.
His proclamation called for all places
of business to close for the day.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife ancl daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk antl worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

The new mayor, Fred Stork, broke
up the picture show at the Empress
Thursday   night.    After   being driven
around town   in  an open baroche,   at,
the head of a shouting torchlight procession, carrying lighted brooms steeped
in kerosene, "His Worship" was bodily
hauled from the carriage, carried on the
shoulders of the cheering crowd down
the   theatre   aisles   and   most   unceremoniously dumped upon the platform
Later on there appeared on this same
platform,  most  of  the candidates  in
Prince   Rupert's   first   civic   election.
There was the defeated candidate for
the mayoralty,  William  Manson,  and
about him and the mayor elect were,

Throughout the whole proceedings
of this great ratification meeting there
was the most marked harmony,���most
emphatically including in this harmony
the speeches made by the defeated
as well as those of the victorious candidates. At the first there .was a tendency
to jeer at the names of the unlucky
ones. But this was a spasmodic exhibition of too narrow minded a sentimental basis to find many supporters,
and it may safely be assumed that this
representative gathering���for everyone
was there who could crowd in, many
ladies included���was on the whole
well satisfied at the result of Prince
Rupert's first municipal election.
Thomas Dunn presided over the
meeting, and in taking the chair said
he would not detain the crowd more
| than a minute. He very nearly kept,
j his word, bottling up his eloquence
j until the close of the meeting, when he
made a rattling good speech. He first
congratulated the people upon their
selection of a first mayor for the city,
for Mr. Stork had told them what he
intended to do in that capacity, and
what he said he would do they could
rely upon it being done. They would
hear from the mayor and the aldermen-
elect, and also fro m some of the defeated
candidates. He should call upon them
to speak in the order they stood upon
the election returns. He then called
upon Mayor Stork, who received a remarkable demonstration. But the tumult did not seem to "rattle" the newly-
elected ruler of the city at all, and at the
first break in the victorious applause
his voice rose clear and free from tremor.
It was evident that he had faced large
crowds before. As he spoke, his radiant
features fell into more dignified lines
as if he had already assumed the mayoral
mantle:   He said:
Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen,���It is not my intention to make a
speech to night. You could scarcely
expect it of me. But I can, and I feel
that I must, say my thanks and express
my appreciation of the confidence you
have shown in me to-day. I can only
thank you for returning me as the first
mayor of Prince Rupert. That, in after
years, when our city has grown to the
noblest of proportions, I shall always
look back with pride and with gratitude
to   you.
I have also to thank you for putting
into office an able body of councillors.
We asked for a whole ticket, but we
didn't get it. But we did get a large
portion of it and 1 have confidence in
stating my opinion that the men you
have selected as the first alderman of
your city will do you credit.
I told you last night that on the 19th
of the month, I was elected the first
mayor of Fernie. On the 19th of the
present month I am elected first mayor
of Prince Rupert. From now on I shall
hold that the 19th of the month is
my lucky day. This day , we can also
say, is the birthday of our city, and it
is natural that a Stork should have much
to do with it. And if it had not beem a
Stork it would have been a MAN SON.
There was a burst of laughter and
cheering at these two innocent puns,
and the mingled laughs and cheers were
again and again renewed.
I see you thoroughly grasp my idea.
The election is over. We have got to
bury the past so far as that is concerned.
We cannot afford to show some of the
feelings engendered by and during the
election. We must bury them, and will
take hold and pull together
In this connection I take this opportunity of thanking Mr. Manson for the
clean manner in which his campaign
has been conducted. I have endeavoured
to do the same and as a consequence
we have had a clean election. There
is only one thing more to say���I thank
you from the bottom of my heart.
When Mr. Manson was called for
that he would be there and respond
seemed to be entirely unexpected on
the part of the audience, and his appearance was, therefore, all the more
heartily applauded. He first offered
his sincere congratulations to Mayor
Stork, and after other compliments of
a statesmanlike character, he went on
to say;
I do not accept my defeat in any
spirit of ill will. During my time in
public service I have had quite a few
elections and some few defeats. I
have been elected, I think, fifteen times
and have been defeated three times,
and I can take a defeat just as placidly
and good humoredly as I can take a
victory.
I would also like to say that, although defeated for the office of mayor,
as the member of the provincial government from this district, my services are
at the disposal of your council at any
and all times, and there doubtless will
be questions arising in regard to which,
as the representative of this district in
Victoria, I may He of some service to
them.
In regard to the campaign just closed,
no doubt after the final result is known
and all is over, many expressions of
opinion will be ventured as to my having
entered this campaign. I have no personal regrets to make, although I have
not been successful. I think the contest
has been one that has awakened a real
interest in our civic affairs, that will
always be helpful in the future. All these
discussions of the questions at issue, all
these questions that have come up and
have been answered by the several
candidates���all this has been of great
advantage to your new city, an advantage you will appreciate more as time
goes on.
Having entered the contest and fought
a clean fight, for which my opponent
generously gives me credit, I have nothing to regret. Before taking my seat
I would like to present to your mayor
a volume containing the incorporation
acts of the city of Prince Rupert.
These Acts were printed at my request
when attending the house last winter,
and they are presented with the compliments of the provincial government.
I have not yet received the final returns
as to the election of aldermen, so I
place in the hands of your mayor, copies
to be handed to these gentlemen elected.
I wish to express hearty thanks
to the many friends who have assisted
me in this campaign, and today that I
appreciate their efforts just as much as
though I had been elected.
Frank Mobley was next called upon
and said he could scarcely find words to
express his appreciation of the honour
conferred upon him, at the same time
he fully realized the work that honor
imposed upon him. He would endeavor
to finish his term in a manner that
would retain the good opinion shown
of him, but was afraid he had been overestimated.
Dr.  Mclntyre was next and made

INTERVIEWS.
His Worship
Alfred Stork, the successful candidate
for the mayoralty, was caught "with all
his blushing honors thick upon him," in
front of the assessor's office, waiting
for the official returns of the vote on
aldermen. When asked what he considered to have been the particular issue that
had decided the election he replied unhesitatingly and with emphasis���"The
desire of the people to have real home
rule. For the past two years the city
has been governed from Victoria, through
an agent, and no matter what that
agent did, whether good or bad for the
city, there was a natural resentment
against this form of government. The
feeling was similar to that you fellows
showed in the Klondyke where you
kicked and kicked against councilmen
appointed from Ortawa until you got
a wholly elective council. That sentiment, in my opinion, was the strongest
point in our campaign here. There were
other questions-of course, but this I
look upon as the crucial one upon which
the contest was really decided."
What   the   Boys   Say.
F. H. Mobley���They overestimated
my ability, but I will try to qualify
it.
F. Bowness���G. W. is the best sport
of all. He comes up with a smile no
matter what happens.
G. R. Naden���It is a declaration for
home rule. I think Prince Rupert is to
be congratulated on the personnel
of the first council.
W. P. Lynch���It does no harm to
discuss things. It awakens public in-
teest and leads to study of public affairs
which must result in good.
F. G. Dawson���I am tickled with the
result.
V. W. Smith���We fought a clean campaign. I am ready to stand upon the
platform  upon  which  I  was elected.
T. D. Pattullo���The result is in the
best interests of the city. Now we ought
to all get in an boost it along. This is
the time to be magnanimous.
G. W. Arnott���Although defeated I
am satisfied to accept the verdict. It
was a great success for the ticket. Those
of us who were not on still have the best
interests of the city at heart. I wish to
thank my supporters and to say that
I hope to live to fight again.
H.   Douglas���You   never   can   tell.
T. Y. McKay���There are more tin
horns and gentlemen of easy virtue than
white men in Prince Rupert.
Crip���The indescribable effect of the
proximity of Halley's Comet must have
turned the heads of the people.
Bob Ross���Poor Pack!
Patrick Isaac���The only way I could
save my face was to offer to bet ten
thousand and I was scared Mac was going to take me.
H. H. Clarke���Aol I have to say is
that it is all over. Let's get down to
business and all work to make Prince
Rupert what it ought to be���the best
city on the Coast.
I want to thank all that voted for me,
and if at any time I can do anything to
help the city, all they have to do is to
say the word.
M. M. Stephens���I am glad it is all
over as I am nearly all tired out. I am
thankful to the people for their support,
but would rather they had elected G. R.
Naden. As far as I am concerned, every
pledge on behalf of the ticket will be
carried out.
Dr. McIntyre--Now that the smoke
of battle has cleared away, and Prince
Rupert's first election is a matter of
history, I look for great improvements
in the near future. The greatest interest
was in the Mayoralty contest, and even
the most enthusiastic supporters of
Mayor Stork did not expect such a
victory However, it must be said of
Mr. Manson that he put up a clean
fight, an 1 his manly attitude on the
platform last night in presenting the
newly elected Mayor and Aldermen
with neat copies of our 'Incorporation
Act, Municipal Clauses Act & etc. has
already wiped out the stigma of defeat,
and marks the member for the Skeena
District a gentleman in the highest
sense of the word.  We can ill afford to
lose the services of an able and experienced man like Geo. R. Naden, but
then our loss is his gain. On the whole
we have a good live Council, and results
will follow. Henceforth you can keep
your eye on Prince Rupert and watch
us grow
A. R. M. Barrow���I am indeed glad
to be elected and will do my best to j
serve the the city.  It is good to see such
a strong feeling of "bury the hatchet" i
among the candidates. Had I been elected
with Mr. Manson as mayor, I would have |
worked in perfect harmony with him
Court Mourning
Hon. Chas. Murphy, Secretary of State
for Canada.makes the following announcement in the Official Gazette of British
Columbia: 'Court mourning will last
until May Sixth, nineteen hundred and
eleven. It is expected that the public
will wear decent mourning from May
twelfth.   Duration not fixed yet.'
A  Public  Holiday.
The first act of Mayor-elect Stork
was to declare May 20th, a public holiday in memory of our late King Edward
VII, whose funeral took place yesterday.
His proclamation called for all places
of business to close for the day.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
Partners, wife, or children, seems
ut common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife antl daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

MARINE
THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS
The fight is over and the 1000 electors of Prince Rupert have given their
verdict. It was a great victory for the ticket and evidence of what organization
and determination can accomplish. If there is to be a moial taken from the result
it is that the people have resented the Bowser administration of Prince Rupert's
affairs. His unpopularity here was too much for William Manson to carry. The
temperance cause also received a heavy set back. There will be no plebiscite on
the question of licenses.
As for the personnel of the new council, no criticism can be offered. The
Optimist intimated at the time of the nomination that this paper would be satisfied
with the people's choice. The people prevail and it is for the aldeimen to now carry
out the policy they were elected to support. In this they should have the unanimous
support of the people. No policy can be truly tested without concerted action of
of the council, and the support of the public. There must, of course, be moie or
less criticism of detail, but the first council should have a fair chance to make good
their pledges.
Mayor-elect Stork is to be congratulated on his splendid victory. He fought a
clean fight and although his policy and organization did not meet unanimous approval, the result proves him to be a good fighter and a politician of merit. He to-day
occupies a position of much honour, and the Optimist wishes him as much success
in working out the civic administration duiing his term of office as he had at the
poll.
DEATH TO ALL RATS.
Among the first uses the new city council should make of the power placed
in their hands by the people, is to use strenuous efforts for the extirmination of
the rats. One may expect someone zt this point in the reading of this article to
exclaim, "Oh, Rats!" in peevish derision. But the subject is not one to joke about;
it is one of the most serious import that will come before the council during its
civic life.
No need to point out to the general reader that the rat has been declared to
be the prime distributor of the most deadly deseases, nor to refer to the immense
sums spent by other municipalities in efforts at their complete extirmination. At
ports in particular, the rodent, being habitually a stowaway passenger on all vessels,
is the danger the greatest. Ports of entry need not only to be cleared of the germ-
carrying pests, but to be kept cleared, as rats at such places may be expected to
arrive from cholera and fever stricken ports where the laws of health are unknown
or unenforced at any old time.
None of these very important points have been overlooked by the leading
people of Prince Rupert who take an active interest in the physical health of the
city. The members of the Board of Trade and also the Grand Trunk Pacific Ry.
officials have given the subject most serious consideration, and there is no reason
to doubt but that the new council will act with promptness in the matter. But
this is one of those cases in which official action of itself cannot of itself produce
the desired results and provide a complete remedy for the existing evil.
The council may take ihe initiative and it is then for every citizen, by concerted
action, to follow. Lert us decide, "each and individually for himself and each for the
other," as a legal document reads, that all rats within the city limits must and shall
be exterminated, and immediately set about doing our share.
One of the best bacteriological preparations that has been ODncocted for rat
extirmination is said to be thc Danysz Virus. It is not a poison, but contains
the germs of it disease to which rats and other mouse-like rodents are susceptible.
Among these, the disease so started spreads rapidly and in all cases produces death.
There are none of the dangers in the use of the virus as accompany the use of
poison f Jr such purposes, as dogs, cats, birds and domestic pets generally are altogether immune from thc disease it produces. Also, there is no inconvenience from
the rats dying under the floors, as they would were poison used, because the first
action of the virus leads the rodent to leave its haunts and rush for the
open, whore it dies. Anyone can purchase this virus from the Orme drug store,
and In the best interests of the future prosperity of the city it is hoped that every
property holder and house-keeper will at once "��t out to do his share in the important work of killing off the disease-spreading rodents.

THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS
The fight is over and the 1000 electors of Prince Rupert have given their
verdict. It was a great victory for the ticket and evidence of what organization
and determination can accomplish. If there is to be a moral taken from the result
it is that the people have resented the Bowser administration of Prince Rupert's
affairs. His unpopularity here was too much for WilKam Manson to carry. The
temperance cause also received a heavy set back. There will be no plebiscite on
the question of licenses.
As for the personnel of the new council, no criticism can be offered. The
Optimist intimated at the time of the nomination that this paper would be satisfied
with the people's choice. The people prevail and it is for the aldeimen to now carry
out the policy they were elected to support. In this they should have the unanimous
support of the people. No policy can be truly tested without concerted action of
of the council, and the support of the public. There must, of course, be moie or
less criticism ot detail, but the first council should have a fair chance to make good
their pledges.
Mayor-elect Stork is to be congratulated on his splendid victory. He fought a
clean fight and although his policy and organization did not meet unanimous approval, the result proves him to be a good fighter and a politician of merit. He to-day
occupies a position of much honour, and the Optimist wishes him as much success
in working out the civic administration dining his term of office as he had at the
poll.
DEATH TO ALL RATS.
Among the first uses the new city council should make of the power placed
in their hands by the people, is to use strenuous efforts for the extirmination of
the rats. One may expect someone zt this point in the reading of this article to
exclaim, "Oh, Rats!" in peevish derision. But the subject is not one to joke about;
it is one of the most serious import that will come before the council during its
civic life.
No need to point out to the general reader that the rat has been declared to
be the prime distributor of the most deadly deseases, nor to refer to the immense
sums spent by other municipalities in efforts at their complete extirmination. At
ports in particular, the rodent, being habitually a stowaway passenger on all vessels,
is the danger the greatest. Ports of entry need not only to be cleared of the germ-
carrying pests, but to be kept cleared, as rats at such places may be expected to
arrive from cholera and fever stricken ports where the laws of health are unknown
or unenforced at any old time.
None of these very important points have been overlooked by the leading
people of Prince Rupert who take an active interest in the physical health of the
city. The members of the Board of Trade and also the Grand Trunk Pacific Ry.
officials have given the subject most serious consideration, and there is no reason
to doubt but that the new council will act with promptness in the matter. But
this is one of those cases in which official action of itself cannot of itself produce
the desired results and provide a complete remedy for the existing evil.
The council may lake ihe initiative and it is then for every citizen, by concerted
action, to follow. Lerl us decide, "each and individually for himself and each for the
other," as a legal document reads, thut all rats within the city limits must and shall
be exterminated, and immediately set about doing our share.
One of the best bacteriological preparations that has been ooncocted for rat
extirmination is said to be the Danysz Virus. It is not a poison, but contains
the germs of a disease to which rats and other mouse-like rodents are susceptible.
Among these, the disease so started spreads rapidly and in all cases produces death.
There are none of the dangers in the use of the virus as accompany the use of
poison for such purpose-;, as dogs, cats, birds and domestic pets generally are altogether immune from the disease it produces. Also, there is no inconvenience from
the rots (lying under the floors, as they would were poison used, because the first
action of the virus leads the rodent to leave its haunts and rush for the
open, where it dies. Anyone can purchase this virus from the Orme drug store,
and in the best interests of the future prosperity of the city it is hoped that every
properly holder and house-keeper will at once set out to do his share in the important work of killing off the disease-spreading rodents.
MARINE
The Humboldt is due to-morrow, on
her way north.
The Northern Steamship company's
new boat, the Cetriana, is due here Monday on her way to Stewart.
The City of Seattle had fifty passengers for Rupert and a big lot of returning
Alaskans and Yukoners.
The Camosun came in last night,
oaded to the gunwales with freight and
passengers She landed sixty passengers
here and had seventy for Stewart.
Steamer Amur landed forty-five passengers here and had a good load for
Skagway. She carries sixty-five tons
of perishables for the Klondike shut-
ins.
With three large steamers at the
wharves at the same time, there was no
much of a holiday in that part of town
yesterday. All the warehouses are
crammed jam full with freight, from
two hundred and fifty to three hundred
tons having been landed from the vessels.
The following were among the passengers who left on the Rupert City at
three o'clock yesterday:
L. S. Westfall, Wm. Lorimer, G. Bailey,
Wm. Eines, J. T. Moore, E. W. Kirkland,
Laurel Cooper, Wm. Gorman, Arthur

BIG  MILL  FOR  STEWART.
T. B. Strain, secretary of the Gilfillan
Lumber Co., has returned to the city
from Stewart, after spending a few days
there looking over the situation. Mr.
Strain says his company has practically
decided to build a large mill at Stewart,
and that plans for it are now being prepared. Meanwhile the company will
continue to ship lumber from here on
scows for the new town
CANADIAN   GOLD   COINS.
The head of King George will not
appear on the coins or Canadian postage
stamps before the end of the year. The
likeness of King Edward the Peacemaker
will continue on the currency and stamps
for another six months at least. In the
case of Postage stamps any design may
be used, but it is customary to have the
monarch's head on the two-cent stamps.
The department has a six months supply
on hand and these will be used up while
dies are being prepared for a new issue
of stamps bearing the likeness of King
George  V.
Changing a design of metal currency
is also a matter of time. Designs have
t o be prepared and approved in both
Canada and Great Britain. Where the
head of the King appears on a coin
his  special   approval   of   the   portrait
has to be obtained.
The finance department at Ottawa
has for sometime been looking into the
question of designs for the new gold
coinage of Canada, and on these the head
of King George will appear. January 1
will probably be the date of the inaugura
tion of Canadian goldc coins.

Delegate Wickersham Again Candidate For Delegate For Alaska.
Juneau, May 19���James Wickersham, delegate from Alaska and anti-
Guggenheim man, announces Wb candidacy for re election in a message from
Washington to the Daily Despatch
here. His cable reads, "In answer to
the insistent demands of my friends in
every section of Alaska, and in unalterable opposition to the Beveridge bill
and Guggenheim domination in Alaska,
I deem it my duty to again be a candidate loir delegate from Alaska."
Major Strong, it is believed, will
be the candidate of the Democratic
party, but if there should develop a
strong sentiment that Wickersham should
be supported in his fight against the
Government, then it is likely Major
Strong would withdraw, for although
on different sides in politics, they are
ot one mind in regard to Alaska's legislative needs.
ANOTHER   NEW  BUSINESS.
Prince Rupert is rapidly forging

J latest addition to its retail business is a
[general Fair Store which is being opened
I by M. D. Simon, of Vancouver. He has
I taken a store in Dr. Mclntyre's block
on Third Avenue and has had it nicely
fitted up. The lines of goods carried
are cut-glass ware, hardware, butcher
ware.stationery, fancy china, fancy goods
and notions. In fact everything in the
way of small goods. The store is one
that will fit in well and is just what was
needed in the city as many things not
carried by the other merchants will be
found here. Mr. Simon is a young
man who has been connected with the
retail business for some years, and in
starting a general Fair Store in Prince
\ Rupert he displays enterprize which is
\sure to bring him success.

PORTLAND TIDE FLATS
Canadians   and   Americans  in  Dispute as to Lands at Mouth
of  Canal.
Up a* the head oi Portland Canal
the Alaska boundary dis] ute has pushed
its hoary bead above -.he snowbanks,
rattled its frosty bones into activity,
and to complete the resurrection has
plumped itself down in the middle of
the tideflats to feast or. a local scuahbie
which rr.ay develope into another
little game of draw for the international
politicians to sit down to. At the last
session Uncle ~u~ had what is technically known a- a 'busted flush' observes
the Vancouver Province.but he gathered
in the pot while Johnny Canuck, looking
over John Bull's hand, Mas urging the
latter to go the limit.
Since the development of the fact
that the mineral resources on the
Canadian side of the boundary are
very rich the town o: Stewart has
sprung up a- the headquarters of Canadian activity. Although not invited to the feast many Americans
hurried to the point in Alaska nearest to the prosperity banquet and
camped, waiting for something to
turn up. They started the town of
Portland on the Alaska side. The
townsite was staked till the face of
the earth was as prickly with spines
of timber as the back of a porcupine
is with quills. When there was no
more room for stakes on the land,
they were rammed into the mushy
bosom of the tideflats on the Alaska
side of the line.
At the tidewater the boundary line is
marked by a monument and a wide
scar across the face of the forest glade
of a mountain marks the point where
Canada and the United States divide
jurisdiction. Out in the canal the
boundary line is the center of the waterway. Canadians, hungry for tideflats,
took a boat and plied the waters of the
canal till they were in such a position
on the boundary line in its center that
they they could look up the gash on
the mountainsi de and their location on
the water was in line with the path
of the great trench among the trees.
Then they marked the spot where they
were with a buoy and hastened shoreward
to the flats which they bespattered with :
stakes on what they deemed the Canadian side of the land boundary produced
in its compass path till it met the
internationally agreed upon line in the ]
center of the canal.
To the Americans on the spot this
looked too much like a division of the
flats fronting the Alaska townsite of
Portland. They decided that instead
of the land boundary line following its
compass path out over the water till
it met the agreed-on boundary in the
center of the canal it swerved ab-
ruplly southeastward from the monument on the shore, taking the shortest route from that monument to the
center of the  canal.
By chance it happened that this little rearrangement of the boundary
line threw all the flats opposite Port-
and townsite into Alaska. The Americans on the ground claim, according
to the statements of passengers who
arrived in Vancouver last night on the
steamer Princess May, that their contention is supported by Washington.
Canadian stakers and American re-
stakers are standing pat and waiting
for the next move

ANOTHER MINE FLOATED
Keystone Group on Glacier Creeks
Put on Vancouver Market.
A new flotation in the Portland Canal
district, and known as the Keystone
Mining Company, Limited, has just been
put on the Vancouver market. The
claims are on Glacier Creek, and were
staked in 1907 by Anhel Jones, who has
done the necessary development work
on them ever since, and has run an open
cut for 150 feet and has shown by
stripping, a ledge from 3 to 6 feet wide,
which can be traced for several feet
across the property. Some assays taken
from Keystone ore run as high as $79.16
in gold, silver and lead. These claims
were recently taken up by a syndicate
of local men, who have now floated a
company and have offered a portion of
the stock to the public at 15 cents per
share. When one takes into consideration
the value of the adjacent properties,
and the fact that the Keystone claims
were staked before the rush to the
Portland Canal began, it is a reasonable
supposition that systematic development
work will prove the undoubted worth
of the Keystone claims.
The provisional board of directors
consists of well known local business
men and brokers, and the fiscal brokers
of the company are Messrs. Eliot and
Bromley. It is the intention of the
company to continue development work
on this promising property at the earliest possible date.

BOOMING   PORTLAND.
'After a visit to the Portland Canal
district I have come to the conclusion
that British Columbia is just entering
upon    the    most    legitimate    mining
movement   in   its   history,' -said   Mr.
Alexander   Miller   to   The  Vancouver
Province reporter.   Mr. Miller had returned from Stewart, where he awarded |
a contract for the construction of the
j first   plate-glass   front   office   building
to be erected in the new town.    The
i structure will be of two storeys with
j a frontage of sixty feet.   Mr. Miller is
i a  well  known  mining  man  who  has
! operated   extensively   throughout   the
! Kootenays and Boundary.
'Vast supplies for the various mining  camps  are   pouring  in   by   every
boat.   A few weeks hence will see hundreds of prospectors striking for the?
hills as there is  a great deal  of un-
pjospected   ground   in   the   district.
Apart from the operations of the
Mann   syndicate   which   has   ninety
claims   under   bond,   scores   of   other
propositions   will    be   developed   this
season.   I don't think i am overstating I
facts when I assert that there will be
work for at least 1000 miners in the I
Various   camps.
'The new district has the values
and ideal conditions for mining. The
values are usually high while drilling
will cost much less than in the Koot-
i enays owing to the softness of the
j rock. With the opening of the railway
1 cheap transport ation facilities are
assured. The ore is of sufficient grade
to stand a much heavier charge than
the low transportation rates by water
from Stewart to the smelters on
Island and at Tacoma. The camp is
sure to develop the second largest
tonnage in the province. Stewart
is quite lively. Building operations
are being rushed. Pack outfits are
coming in by the score, thus assuring
the delivery of supplies at the camps
until  the railway  gets  in.'
During his stay in the North Mr.
Miller bonded a number of propositions. He denied the widely-circulated
report that there was much staking of
'snow'   claims.
'In the majority of instances where
claims were staked on the snow I ascertained that they were relocations
by old prospectors who were familiar
with the ground and knew that it was
vacant.'

MINING
The Dibble Group.
Mr James Cronin, a well known mining operator of Spokane, arrived yesterday and is staying at the Grand Trunk
Inn. He is en route for the Babine
district, where he has been developing
the Dibble group, a very promising
Mlver-lead proposition. He will go in
via the Skeena River to Hazelton, and
thence over the trail to the mine.. Mr.
Cronin speaks very hopefully, but conservatively about the future of mining
in the region tributary to the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway.
He will not even admit that his
property has yet attained the earmarks of a mine and is planning for
more extensive development this summer.
The values are high in both silver and
lead. There are also a large number of
claims in the same camp on some of
which considerable work has been done.
Th Cronin property did not close down
(or the winter. The snowfall was very
heavy last winter and the approach to
the tunnel was through a snow tunnel
nearly 400 feet long.

R. L. Moore has been in town for a
day or two with his handsome launch.
Mr. Moore is timber inspector for the
district between Stewart and Queen

was made by Chief Commissioner Hon.
Price Ellison and the price paid was
$3,700. The new boat will be in charge
of Inspector Moore. It is 40 feet long,
10 feet beam and 4 feet draft, and is
very comfortably equipped and well
suited for the work for which she is
intended. Mr. Moore will be on the
lookout at all times for those who
are not abiding by the Timber Act,
and he is now in a position to catch the
best of them.

HYDRAULICS  IN  OLD CARIBOO.
A big hydraulic plant is being installed on placer ground on the north
fork of the Quesnel river,near Spanish
creek, Cariboo district by J. B. Hobson,
the veteran mining editor of Victoria.
He expects to have the plant going in full
blast long before the end of the season.
The concession comprises about 240
acres. There is an excellent water supply.
The ground is estimated to run five
cents in gold per cubic yard. Ninety
men will be employed.
Mr. Hobson has established a store
at Quesnel dam, on the south fork of
Quesnel river. He has also placed a
yacht and small boats on the lake for
the convenience of visitors. The lake
is one hundred miles long, with one arm
forty miles in length.
Mr. Hobson has been engaged in
hydraulic and placer mining operations
for forty-five years, twenty of which
were spent in Cariboo district. On the
old Cariboo concession he took out
over $2,500,000 in bullion. His early
mining experience was gained in California.
H. W. Dubois, of Philadelphia, is installing a $200,000 hydraulic plant
on Twenty Mile creek, below the forks
of Quesnel river. The plant will not be
in shape to handle ground this season.
The water will be conveyed to the concession in a fifteen mile ditch now being
excavated.

highly appreciate the manly stand he
has taken on this platform to-night, and
in everything he may do or attempt
for the upbuilding of Prince Rupert,
he will have my hearty support.
W. P. Lynch made a brief sppeech
of appreciation, and the chairman called
Mr. Barrow. Mr. Barrow did not respond and the chairman, who also acted
as color sergeant, reported him absent
without leave. The other candidates
who were called on during the evening,
and failed to respond, were Messrs.
Morrisey, Arnott and Douglas.
Mr.     Morrow     responded. He
said he had to admit that he did
not get enough votes but had the consolation of feeling that while the victors
were working he should be spending
quiet evening at his home or at the
club.
H. H. Clarke said he would have
liked to have seen Mr. Naden elected,
but for himself he felt just as happy
in defeat because he could now go home
evenings and attend to his own business.
Alderman V. W. Smith was pleased
the election was over and the axe buried,
and that there would be no more antagonistic feelings between Mr. Stork and
the gentlemen on the opposition ticket.
Alderman M. M. Stephens told his
audience that if they felt as tired as he
did, they would be in bed. They had
fought a good fight and were good
winners. He only led Mr Naden by
five votes, and a recount might change
the situation. It was not his intention
to stand again for municipal office in
Prince Rupert, as he could hardly
afford more than seven months of office.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Prince  Rupert,   May  20,1910
To   the   Citizens   of   Prince   Rupert:
In the municipal campaign just closed
with the Election of Alfred Stork as
���Mayor together with a full Board of
Aldermen, permit me to offer sincere
congratulations to Mr. Stork, our new
Mayor, and also to the Aldermanic
candidates elected-chosen by a majority
of the intelligent citizens of our Town.
In responsible Government the people's
choice must be respected and obeyed,
and to the New Mayor and Board of
Aldermen I take this method of tendering
my most devoted loyalty.
Concluding I wish to offer my most
sincere thanks to the large number of
ladies and gentlemen of our Town who
had sufficient confidence in me to
record their votes for me ps an aldermanic
candidate.
Yours very truly,
D. W. Morrissey.

CREATED DISTURBANCE.
Preston Got Drunk and Attacked  a
Couple of Ladies.
C. H. Preston a well known character
who was shipped out of town some time
ago, blew back a few days ago and now
stands a good chance of getting a free
passage south again. Preston is the man
who leased land from G. W. Kerr and
permitted blind pigs and disorderly conduct in the houses he had erected on
them.
Kerr had the lease cancelled by the
courts and the houses were seized by the
sheriff and sold. Preston has been sore
ever since and Thursday he got drunk
and went to Kerr's home and made a
disturbance. He broke in the front door
and drove Mrs. Kerr and Mrs. Thomas
out into the street and made things
lively in the house, breaking furniture
etc. Hamblin, a neighbor, came to the
rescue and after a tussle got the better
of Preston and forced him to leave. Later
in the day a warrant was issued and
Preston was placed under arrest. He
will have a hearing Saturday morning
at 10 o'clock
POLICE COURT
Felix Brown the Indian, charged with
being drunk was fined $20. or 30 days.

two months. He took the Government

he would not ask anyone for a vote and
he had kept his word. He also said he

existed between the two candidates for
mayor, he declared to be a "beautiful

Mr. Manson.

THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
FIRST ELECTION IN RUPERT
Public Interest Was Keen���Demonstration and Procession.
The first municipal elections of Prince
Rupert are over and the five thousand
people who have been here during the
campaign will in future years look
back upon the contest as one of the events
of their lives. The fight was in real
earnest and it was real warm. No
political contest could have developed
more general interest and enthusiasm.
At the same time the best of good feeling existed between the contending candi
dates. There were some personal
criticisms and some mud slinging, but
that has now been forgottem and only
the pleasures of the fight remembered.
All day Thursday the workers were
on the jump. An automobile arrived
on the Rupert City from Vancouver
for Mr. Manson's party. Wagons and
the one hack were used to bring out the
vote, although the majority took "shanks
mare" for it.
There were something over 1200
votes on the list and 1006 cast their
ballots. This is a remarkable vote and
shows the universal interest taken in
the contest by the people. All day long
a big crowd stood in front of the Government buildings where the vote was
recorded, and another crowd was coming
and going continuously. Inside the building four polling booths were arranged
and the officers handled the voters very
successfully and without delay. Returning officer A. Cuthbert made splendid provision for all and he particularly
looked after his officials.
At five o'clock the polls were closed,
and the doors locked. On the inside
were most of the candidates and they
watched the counting of the ballots with
almost breathless interest. It did not
take long, however, to discover that
the election had been in favour of Mr.
Stork. The ballots from first to last
would indicate the same thing and in
all four booths he took a small majority.
Mr. Stork and his friends were in the
best of spirits and were congratulating
each other before the count was half
finished, and soon afterward it was
generally conceded inside the booth and
on the street that Fred Stork was the
successful candidate.
Mr. Manson was by no means disconcerted. He remitted with Ihe crowd
until the last and took his defeat like
the man that he is. He was one of the
first to acknowledge the people's choice.
As soon as the result of the mayoralty
contest was known, Mr. Stork's friends
on the Htreet made a demonstration
which was kept up until late in the night,
and after the ballots for the aldermen
were counted, a torch light procession
was formed and paraded some of the
principal streets. Mayor elect Stork and
the successful aldermen were crowded
into the hack, and were followed by two
wagon loads of cheering enthusiasts, and
many on foot with burning brooms.
After the procession the successful
candidates and some of the unsuccessful met in the Empress theatre to tell
the people all about it.
Declaration   of   Office.
The Mayor-elect and the returning
officer decided on Saturday May 21st,
as the day for the successful candidates
to take their declaration of office. After
that proceeding, a meeting of the council
will be held and the organization of the
municipality taken up. No time will
be lost in getting down to work. There
is a big pile of wood to saw and the first
mayor and aldermen will have no spare
time for pleasure during the next seven
months.
