CITIZENS FIRST
FOR CITY WORK
ALD. HILDITCH RAISES HIS VEX-
ED QUESTION
And li Charged With Talking a Lot
to Make Political Capital. The
"Vitches" Seem to Bother Him a
Bit.  "Waiting List" tor Worker*.
Under the head of 'unfinished business' at last night's city council meeting
Aid. Hilditch spoke on a subject now
more or less generally associated with
Mm, namely, the claims of the resident
and tax-paying wo.kmen of Prince
Rupert to have a preference over
transient laborers when there is city
work going.
Aid. Hilditch said that within the last
few days he had had quite a number of
applications from such ��� resident workmen conmplaining of hard times in the
city and of the impossibility of getting
work, and asking if it were not fair that
they should have the preference over
non-permanent residents of the city in
regard to city labor. Aid. Hilditch
thought these people's claim was a just
one, that those helping to pay city taxes
should have the first privilege of working
on city jobs for city wages. He said
the men of this class applying to him
for help were good husky fellows yet
many of them had been turned down
recently in their search for work not
only by the city but by the contractors
for city works. He proposed bringing
the matter before the Streets committee
and other committees in the hope that
something might be done with it.
Aid. Mobley remarked that a little
���f this had come under his notice too,
but he had been able in all cases to
put the applicants onto jobs. He did
not think the cases were as numerous
as Aid. Hilditch would imply, and
suggested that Aid. Hilditch should
give the names of the men applying
to him. He referred to the case of one
man who had come to him grumbling
because a certain city contract had not
come his way.
Aid. Hilditch said it wasn't so much
the contractors as the laborers and
artisans he meant. He said that on
looking down the pay roll of the city
writs' departments he had been appalled at the number of names he had
��*n there ending with "vitch" or some
"Kb foreign looking tale. He had
Wed Mr. Thompson about this and
J"d been informed that the "vitches"
bad been engaged in a time of pressure
when
men were  wanted  in   a  hurry.
A'd. Hilditch  went  on  to  emphasize
e fact that it was the workmen rather
' an ,ho8e wanting contracts that he
�����M.   The contractors, he said, can
took after themselves.
Aid. Mobley rose in defence of the
ml i. He 8aid that many ot the

those complaints laid before the council
as a whole? As for people's names, the
Dominion of Canada was going to great
expense every year to bring people,
of all nationalities into the country,
spending annually thousands of dollars.
People were wanted to help build the
city, and it was poor policy seemingly,
for Prince Rupert to reverse the method
of the Dominion at large and find no
use for people with foreign names.
Aid. Hilditch said he was rather
amused at Aid. Pattullo's remarks. In
reference to the Dominion's spending
large sums to bring in people, he said
there was a big difference between the

ELECTRIC LIGHT SITE
Reply Received From Grand Trunk
Favorable to Application
Some time ago the city council applied to the Grand Trunk Pacific for a
site for the city lighting plant, but meantime purchased a site. Aid. Smith remarked this morning that Superintendent Mehan was in receipt of a letter
from Mr. Chamberlin to the effect that
the application of the city had been
granted by the company.
Only Ten Daya Now
In order that workmen who cannot
easily get away to register their names
on the voters' list between the hours of
10 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m. at the City Hall,
Aid. Hilditch last night suggested that
the city assessor might perhaps attend
to the registering between the hours of
7 and 8 p.m. After some little discussion it was decided to look into the
matter and see what can be done to
give everybody qualified a chance to
get entered as a voter in the ten days
now available for the purpose.
Bell's Little Jag
In the police court this morning J. T.
Bell was fined five dollars and costs for
being drunk yesterday. He was allowed
till afternoon to raise the money, failing
payment to go to gaol for seven days.

Brother-in-Law Missing
Richard Hurley who left Vancouver

sent a post card from here to Toronto
announcing his safe arrival, and has
not since been heard of, is anxiously
enquired for by W. Hitchen of 203
Hamilton street, Toronto, who will be
glad to receive any information regarding
his relative.
For the Benefit of the Public
As the Mclntyre Hall is the only
dance hall in town, Messrs. Brin Furniture Co. wish to announce that it will
be available for dances, parties, and all
social functions for this coming winter.
BANKS ISLAND
IS EXPLORED
Permit Granted
The Westholme Lumber company will
be permitted by the city to build a dry
masonry wall on Second avenue opposite
Lot^ 65 and 66, Block 7, Section 1, subject to the approval of the city engineer.
The Streets committee's report to this
effect was approved and adopted at
last night's city council.
Prince Albert on Run Again
The Prince Albert left at seven
o'clock last night, with twenty-five passengers for Stewart, Masset, Skidegate,
Queen Charlotte City and Ikeda Bay.
She will be back here on Sunday morning.
ROVER BOATHOUSE MOVED
NEW   NORTHWEST   PASSAGE   IS
DISCOVERED
P. M. Maher and the Minnesota
Parties Are All Pleased with Soil
and Climate���Meadows Large in
Extent Found Few Miles Inland.
The Empress theatre show last night
was firat rate, and the theatre is evidently
popular judging from the houses it
draws. Tonight's show and Saturday's
will be specially attractive as Prof.
Hoyle will be present to give his marvellous exhibition.
The Maher expedition to Banks island,
which left here a week ago in the Topaz,
-eturned last evening, and Captain
Bragg, of the little steamer, told the
same story of bad weather as most of
the navigators have the last few days.
During the heaviest part of the storm,
however, they were riding at anchor in
a harbor off Banks island which is
unchartered, unmapped and unnamed.
Captain Bruin was in charge of the
expedition and the party suggests that
his name be changed to Ursa Major
because of his exploit in having discovered a northwest passage on Banks
island. The party sailed from here on
the afternoon of the 13th and anchored
off Elliot island for the night. The next
morning they reached Banks island,
twenty-five miles from there and anchored in an inlet "unchartered, unmapped and unnamed," but which
provided a safe anchorage notwithstanding. The next day they proceeded
to Deadman's Inlet, four miles southeast
of the inlet unnamed.
There the party landed soon after
seven in the morning at once proceeded
on an exploration of the interior. About
eight miles inland they arrived at the
tract mapped out and found every
thing satisfactory. They found flowery
meadows of good grass from one to three
miles wide and ten miles in length, which
called forth the admiration of Mr.
Larkin, who is spying out land for
Minnesota parties.
The next day Captain Bruin and Mr.
Larkin took two days provisions and
set out to cross the island from east to
west. A short distance out they struck
Principe channel and being unable to
cross had to retrace their steps and
following what they believed to be the
coast line managed to reach Hecate
Straits on the west. But here they found
they were lost on an island and could
find no way of getting back to the
mainland of Banks island. This is
where the mysterious northwest passage
comes in. The two explorers were out
four days instead of two, but they had
their guns with them and geese and
duck were exceedingly plentiful.
Messrs. Larkin and Rudy, the two
Minnesota men, are well pleased with
the soil and climate of the part of the
island located, but Mr. Maher, who
left last' night on the Prince Rupert for
the home office in Vancouver, says his
firm is not likely to take any astive
steps for the colonization of the tract
for tha next two years, as much has to
be done before that. The tract located
contains 41,600 acres.
In Good Shape After Grounding and
Work in Full Swing
The Rover boathouse and workshops
of the Prince Rupert Marince Iron
Works and Supply company w��re towed
yesterday from the position in which the
high tide and wind had placed them
ashore from their former moorings, and
taken to a new position at Hays Creek.
H. Dixon Robinson states this morning
that the boathouse and workshops are in
good shape after their grouning, and are
now safely settled in their new position
where work will be continued as formerly
until further notice.
A Local Linguist
A rumor was heard the other night at
the Prince Rupert Club that the assistant steward there is an expert
linguist. It is even whispered that he
speaks excellent Chinese.
TO USE UNION STATION
Grand  Trunk  Pacific  Will  Use  the
One at Vancouver
Vancouver, Oct. 18.���L. C. Gilman,
vice-president of the Great Northern
railway stated that the recent refusal
of the provincial executive to approve
the city's plan for development at the
head of False creek merely covered the
stated point and did not comprehend
the general merits of the case He said
he had been assured by the attorney-
general and premier that the government would aid through special legislation any development scheme of which
the city approy^^-TneTriat'ter-was one
to be treated'in a commercial sense and
not in a political spirit.
On the strength of three assurances
the Great Northern would go ahead
with its plans for trminals at the head
of False Creek and these would be presented shortly to the railway commission. The city is asked to aid in the
work of securing enlarged grants to
the bed of the creek. Mr. Gilman stated that the Great Northern would use
a union passenger depot for its Vancouver
business, Mr. Mann having approached
him on the matter in Chicago two weeks
ago. Grand Trunk Pacific officials had
also intimated that they would use the
station.
ERECTION OF
WAREHOUSE
FOR STEWART MOBLEY   AND   J.
PIERCY MORRIS CO.
Work Begun on Large New Double
Building Today. To Cost Between
$15,000 and $16,000. E. Kauffman
Is Contractor.
The contract for the fine new double
warehouse building to be erected on
First avenue and the waterfront for
Messrs. Setwart and Mobley and Messrs.
J. Piercy Morris & Co., has been let
to Emil Kauffman, the contractor
who erected the new Kelly Douglas
building now almost completed.
Work commenced today on the excavation necessary for the foundations,
and with a large group of men on the
contractor expects to have this part of
the work speedily completed. The
actual work of erection of the building
is under the terms of the contract
expected to be completed on or before
January fifteenth. As a matter of fact,
however, the contractor expects to
have the warehouse completed fully a
month earlier.
The cost of the actual structure will
run to a matter of $13,000 but that is
merely the bare building. Before the
warehouse is complete with fittings, and
painter work finished the outlay for it
will reach somewhere between $15,000
and $16,000
The expense is of course shared mutually by the firms mentioned as the
warehouses though separate within are
to be erected as one building to ull
appearance outside. G. L. Proctor is
the architect.
UNGA ISLAND MINE
Alaaka Property  to Be Opened    Up
Thia Winter
A movement is on foot to open up
the Sitka mine on Unga island this
winter, and it <s reported that the
Louis Herman property on Popoff
Island, Sand Point, will be opened
up. It has long been conceded that
these roperties have an excellent showing, but the locators have been unable
to open them up themselves, and the
prices asked for interests have deterred capital from taking up the
prospects. Now, it is announced, satisfactory arrangements have been reached,
and the mines will soon be developed.
PEACE RIVER PROGRESS
Council Meetings Cut Down
It was proposed by the Mayor last
night, that as city council business is
now not piling up so much as it used to,
three nights a week for council meetings
are too many. The Mayor thought one
meeting would be enough, but Aid.
Mobley was in favor of two meetings
owing to the arrangements made for
meetings of committees. After some
little discussion it was moved by Aid.
Pattullo and seconded by Aid. Mobley
that in future council meetings should
be held on Monday and Thursday
nights and the motion was carried.
Country Now in Touch With Civilization By Wire
Peace River Crossing, Alta., Oct. 18.���
The telegraph line reached this point
on the 16th instant. A gathering of the
residents was held at the place in the
evening where the office was cut in and
much friendly rivalry existed as to who
should have the honor of transmitting
the first message. Every one, without
exception expressed themselves as being
highly delighted with the realization of
one of the winter evening dreams of
the past as regards closer communication
with the outside world.
The line is now being extended 13
miles further to the Shafts ury settlement, from which point they will have
telephone communication with this place
this winter*
A steady stream of immigration
continues to flow through this plage
of settlers bound for the Grand Prairie
and Peace river points. THE   PRINCE   RUPE R T   OPTIMIST

THE ALDERMAN
GOT HIS DUCK
VERNOR W. SMITH RETURNED
FROM VACATION
Says Port Mann Is Booming���Had
Offer for His Property There but
Declined It���Glad to Hear Helgerson Made Successful Plunge. -
Alderman Vemor W. Smith returned
on the Prince Rupert yesterday from
his three week's vacation, and was at
his desk in the office of Foley, Welch &
Stewart this morning. He chatted about
his trip but harked back the conversation
continually to "the ranch." This means
his ranch near Camrose, on the Poke-
hasset branch of the Canadian Pacific.
He had not seen it for two years, and said
with the enthusiasm of a boy that he
found everything looking fine. Crops
were good, stock healthy and multiplying, and wild duck and prairie chicken
plentiful. The ideal of his vacation was
to have some duck shooting, and this
he enjoyed to his fill.
He was glad to get away from his
desk routine and council worries, he
said, and try to forget Prince Rupert for
a brief spell. But it was brought back
to him even in his home town. He went
with a party to Miquelon Lake, fourteen
miles north of Camrose, which is one
of the best shooting lakes in Alberta. It
is a great resort for the Edmonton and
Alberta sportsmen. In his party was
the mayor and two councillors of the
city of Camrose.. That town is wrestling
with the putting in of electric kight and
with a sewerage system just as is Prince
Rupert, so that in the evenings, at the
fine clubhouse they have at the lake,
the conversation naturally turned to
those municipal problems once in a
way. The mayor had a gasoline launch
on the lake, so that this part of the trip
was altogether enjoyable.
Returing to the coast he found Vancouver very lively. Mrs. Smith met
him there and after doing some shopping
they went over to Seattle. They found
Seattle quiet by comparison with Vancouver, but without any great signs of
depression.
"When we returned we made a trip
to P rt Mann," said Mr. Smith, "and
certainly things are coming there at a
great rate. I was glad to hear my
friend Olgy Helgerson got in there. I
was very glad to learn that he took a
plunge and believe he will clean up a
lot of money.
"No, I did not speculate, for the
reason that I had some property there
already. While Mrs. Smith and I were
in Vancouver we were made a good
offer���an offer of $1000 an acre for what
we paid $260 an acre a few, months ago.
But we did not sell. They have let a
contract for cleaning up the townsite
of Port Mann, a thousand acres, and
things are looking very bright there."

BANKS ISLAND
IS EXPLORED
NEW   NORTHWEST   PASSAGE   IS
DISCOVERED
P. M. Maher and the Minnesota
Parties Are All Pleased with Soil
and Climate���Meadows Large in
Extent Found Few Miles Inland.
The Maher expedition to Banks island,
which left here a week ago in the Topaz,
���eturned last evening, and Captain
Bragg, of the little steamer, told the
same story of bad weather as most of
the navigators have the last few days.
During the heaviest part of the storm,
however, they were riding at anchor in
a harbor off Banks island which is
unchartered, unmapped and unnamed.
Captain Bruin was in charge of the
expedition and the party suggests that
his name be changed to Ursa Major
because of his exploit in having discovered a northwest passage on Banks
island. The party sailed from here on
the afternoon of the 13th and anchored
off Elliot island for the night. The next
morning they reached Banks island,
twenty-five miles from there and anchored in an inlet "unchartered, unmapped and unnamed," but which
provided a safe anchorage notwithstanding. The next day they proceeded
to Deadman's Inlet, four miles southeast
of the inlet unnamed.
There the party landed soon after
seven in the morning at once proceeded
on an exploration of the interior. About
eight miles inland they arrived at the
tract mapped out and found every
thing satisfactory. They found flowery
meadows of good grass from one to three
miles wide and ten miles in length, which
called forth the admiration of Mr.
Larkin, who is spying out land for
Minnesota parties.
The next day Captain Bruin and Mr.
Larkin took two days provisions and
set out to cross the island from east to
west. A short distance out they struck
Principe channel and being unable to
cross had to retrace their steps and
following what they believed io be the
coast line managed to reach Hecate
Straits on the west. But iiere they found
they were lost on an island and could
find no way of getting back to the
mainland of Banks island. This is
where the mysterious northwest passage
comes in. The two explorers were out
four days instead of two, but they had
their guns with them and geese and
duck were exceedingly plentiful.
Messrs. Larkin and Rudy, the two
Minnesota men, are well pleased with
the soil and climate of the part of the
island located, but Mr. Maher, who
left last night on the Prince Rupert for
the home office in Vancouver, says his
firm is not likely to take any active
steps for the colonization of the tract
for tha next two years, as much has to
be done before that. The tract located
contains 41,600 acres.
Permit Granted
The Westholme Lumber company will
be permitted by the city to build a dry
masonry wall on Second avenue opposite
Lots 66 and 66, Block 7, Section 1, subject to the approval of the city engineer.
The Streets committee's report to this
effect was approved and adopted at
last night's city council.
Prince Albert on Run Again
The Prince Albert left at seven
o'clock last night, with twenty-five passengers for Stewart, Masset, Skidegate,
Queen Charlotte City and Ikeda Bay.
She will be back here on Sunday morning.

TO USE UNION STATION
Grand  Trunk  Pacific  Will  Use  the
One at Vancouver
Vancouver, Oct. 18.���L. C. Gilman,
vice-president of the Great Northern
railway stated that the recent refusal
of the provincial executive to approve
the city's plan for development at the
head of False creek merely covered the
stated point and did not comprehend
the genera) merits of the case He said
he had been assured by the attorney-
general and premier that the government would aid through special legislation any development scheme of which
the city approy^---Th'e"irmt'ter-was one
to be treated in a commercial sense and
not in a political spirit.
On the strength of these assurances
the Great Northern would go ahead
with its plans for trminals at the head
of False Creek and these would be presented shortly to the railway commission. The city is asked to aid in the
work of securing enlarged grants to
the bed of the creek. Mr. Gilman stated that the Great Northern would use
a union passenger depot for its Vancouver
business, Mr. Mann having approached
him on the matter in Chicago two weeks
ago. Grand Trunk Pacific officials had
also intimated that they would use the
station.
ERECTION OF
WAREHOUSE
FOR STEWART MOBLEY   AND   J.
PIERCY MORRIS CO.
Work Begun on Large New Double
Building Today. To Coat Between
$15,000 and $16,000. E. Kauffman
Is Contractor.
The contract for the fine new double
warehouse building to be erected on
First avenue and the waterfront for
Messrs. Setwart and Mobley and Messrs.
J. Piercy Morris & Co., has been let
to Emil Kauffman, the contractor
who erected the new Kelly Douglas
building now almost completed.
Work commenced today on the excavation necessary for the foundations,
and with a large group of men on the
contractor expects to have this part of
the work speedily completed. The
actual work of erection of the building
is under the terms of the contract
expected to be completed on or before
January fifteenth. As a matter of fact,
however, the contractor expects to
have the warehouse completed fully a
month earlier.
The cost of the actual structure will
run to a matter of $13,000 but that is
merely the bare building. Before the
warehouse is complete with fittings, and
painter work finished the outlay for it
will reach somewhere between $15,000
and $16,000
The expense is of course shared mutually by the firms mentioned as the
warehouses though separate within are
to be erected as one building to ull
appearance outside. G. L. Proctor is
the architect.
UNGA ISLAND MINE
Alaska Property  to Be Opened
This Winter
Up
A movement is on foot to open up
the Sitka mine on Unga island this
winter, and it is reported that the
Louis Herman property on Popoff
Island, Sand Point, will be opened
up. It has long been conceded that
these roperties have an excellent showing, but the locators have been unable
to open them up themselves, and the
prices asked for interests have deterred capital from taking up the
prospects. Now, it is announced, satisfactory arrangements have been reached,
and the mines will soon be developed.
PEACE RIVER PROGRESS
Council Meeting* Cut Down
It was proposed by the Mayor last
night, that as city council business is
now not piling up so much as it used to,
three nights a week for council meetings
are too many. The Mayor thought one
meeting would be enough, but Aid.
Mobley was in favor of two meetings
owing to the arrangements made for
meetings of committees. After some
little discussion it was moved by Aid.
Pattullo and seconded by Aid. Mobley
that in future council meetings should
be held on Monday and Thursday
nights and the motion was carried.

Peace River Crossing, Alta., Oct. 18.���
The telegraph line reached this point
on the 16th instant. A gathering of the
residents was held at the place in the
evening where the office was cut in and
much friendly rivalry existed as to who
should have the honor of transmitting
the first message. Every one, without
exception expressed themselves as being
highly delighted with the realization of
one of the winter evening dreams of
the past as regards closer communication
with the outside world.
The line is now being extended 13
miles further to the Shafts ury settlement, from which point they will have
telephone communication with this place
this winter.

JAPANESE WHO MADE FIRST DISCOVERY ON BAY
Generalship Shawn By Ikeda in
Laying out the Work for His Prospectors and His Systematic Mode
of. Location.
It. is a matter of common knowledge
that the Ikeda Bay mines were located
in 1906 by the Japanese firm of Awaya,
Ikeda and company, of Vancouver, but
not everyone knows the particular circumstances, under, which the ore body
was first discovered that was destined
to draw attention to this part of the
coast, and bring fame and fortune to
some obscure Japanese fishermen.
It appears, that Ikeda was a popular
son of Nippon with some prospectors
who were investigating the mineral
possibilities of Moresby Island. No
doubt he had rendered them various
little services by transporting their
mail and supplies, and supplying them
with fresh fish from time to time.
One day one of the propsectors, who
was examining some surface ore which
had been brought into camp, showed
the specimen to Ikeda.and in a friendly
way advised him to do a little prospecting on his own account, at the same
time pointing to one. of the adjoining
bays. He told Ikeda that if he examined the ground very carefully he
might discover valuable ore which
was similar and could be sold as a mine
when times were ripe in Vancouver
for interesting the festive real estate
broker.
Ikeda respected the advee of the prospector, and determined to put it to the
test, no doubt figuring that it would be
a much easier way of accumulating the
lucre than harassing the finny tribe.
He therefore called upon all of his compatriots, after a council of war to aid
him in the search, i nd they responded
to ii man. Ikeda directed tbe attack
and chose the next bay, which, no doubt,
looked as good to him as any other indentation on the coast. He landed his
company on the shore and then lined
them up and addressed them military
fashion, explaining exactly by ocular
demonstration, what they were to look
for.
Ikeda may not have known much
about prospecting, but he was eminently a practical man, like the rest of his
countrymen, and agreed that given a
sufficient number of men to the square
mile, there was little opportunity for
anything in the shape of a surface
boulder larger than tbe breakfast egg
being overlooked. His logic bore excellent fruit, for not long after the
company had taken up their positions
in skirmishing order and advanced up
the hill some distance, a joyful sound
proclaimed that something unexpected
had happened. Hurrying up, Ikeda examined the find, which proved to be a
surface outrcop of the prettiest copper
ore he could have pictured in his imagination.
Work was immediately stopped for
the day on the prospecting and a vigorous campaign of claim staking indulged in. The claims were duly recorded, and under Ikeda's direction again
a plan of development work laid off,
the governing principle of which was
keep close to the ore," So closely was
this followed out that.altbough the miners were inexperienced in the modern
methods employed in this country, they
demonstrated that unity made the
strength, by shipping in the years 1907
and 1908 over 8,000 tons of ore averaging about $15 per ton. The extraction
of thia ore represented hundreds of feet
of cross-cutting and drifting, and the
whole record of the Ikeda mines is one
that the Japanese have every reason to
feel proud of. The mines have since
been sold to a Vancouver syndicate, who
it is stated, will reorganize the company
with a view of resuming operations on
a more comprehensive scale.

W11LIS0N ON
ORIENTAL LABOR
TORONTO EDITOR WHO RECENTLY VISITED HERE
Declare* Eaat Cannot Afford to Hold
Illusion* as to Strength of Sentiment on Pacific Coast Against Incoming of Asiatic*.
If Mr. J. S. Willison, editor oi the
Toronto News, had the illusion that the
public sentiment on this coast would
change on the subject of Asiatic labor,
his recent visit has corrected this error.
The Toronto News gives this account
of the situation:
"The east cannot afford to have any
illusions as to the strength of the feeling
on the Pacific coast against Asiatic
labor, and particularly against the incoming of Japanese. The people of
Vancouver and Victoria heard Sir Wilfrid Laurier with respect, but he did
not change their views nor dispel their
uneasiness. It is folly to imagine
that only the labor unions are hostile to Oriental immigration. The
feeling is common to the whole population outside of the canners and
saw mill owners and perhaps the financial interests by which they are supported
"For the Chinese as domestics there
is an improved feeling; the Japanese
are the object of increasing fear and
disfavor. It is not believed, although
the News has no conclusive evidence
to offer one way or the other, that
the agreement with Japan limiting
immigration from that country is observed. It is insisted that Japanese
disembark at the upper ports, that the
invasion assumes formidable dimensions,
that they are a social and industrial
danger, and that falling some radical
reversal of policy, British Columbia
must become substantially a province
of Japan.
"Moreover, the Asiatics are extending
into the prairie country, and thus the
area of disaffection is steadily enlarged. The coast people recognize
the gravity of the labor problem. They
know that without a great supply of
workers the development of the country
must be retarded. But nothing will
avail against the determination to have
a "White Canada." and parliament
cannot afford to misunderstand or
neglect the situation."

THE HIGH SIGN AND SOFT PEDAL
The Edmonton Journal which has ever had a dislike for the G. T. P., whether
with or without reason, has some caustic comments on the recent Grand Trunk
Pacific news items. They are worth reading whether one agrees with them or not:
"It commences to look very much as though the Grand Trunk Pacific anvil
chorus has been given the high sign to put the soft pedal on the shortage of labor
dirge.
After filling western newspapers with the story that there were not men enough
in.the country to keep a fair-sized steam shovel fired up, Mr. Hays reversed the
whole literature in Winnipeg by giving out the statement that the only shortage
that existed, if there were any, was due to the demand for harvest hands.
Now Jack Stewart, the guiding spirit of the firm of Foley, Welch & Stewart,
tells the Coast papers that there is no truth in the story that he refused the contract
for the central mountain section, on account of labor shortage or for any other
reason.
Reading between the lines one would guess that the Grand Trunk Pacific
crowd had heard a whispered message from Ottawa or thereabout that to continue
the agitation for the importation of celestials would result in getting themselves
and their political friends disliked.
However that may be, the country is the wiser through having had an opportunity to learn just what Mr. Hays and his friends really think about the amtter."
GRADES OF TWO LINES COMPARED
Of all the transcontinental roads running to the Pacific coast, the new line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific will have the easiest grades of any of these great systems, both American and Candian, and will have a comparatively level stretch
of country for the rest of the way.
In the comparison of the Grand Trunk Pacific, the Canadian Pacific, Great
Northern, Northern Pacific, Union Pacific, on the Omaha to San'Francisco route,
on the Omaha to Portland route, the Western Pacific and the Santa Fe system, the
new line has but 6,990 feet ascent to overcome on the eastbound route, and 6,890
feet westward. There is but one summit on this line, that at the Yellowstone Gap.
The highest point above sea level in the pass is but 3,712 feet. The maximum
gradient in feet per mile westbound is 26, and eastbound 21.
The Canadian Pacific has two summits to overcome, and a total ascent in feet
of 23,106 feet eastbound and 23,051 westbound. The heights of these summits
are 5,299 and 4,308 feet respectively. The maximum gradient eastbound, per
mile, is 237 feet, and westbound 116 feet.
Aid. Hilditch is bothered by the number of names ending with "vitch" on
the payroll for certain city work. There's nearly a whole alp habet of difference of
course, between a "vitch" and a "ditch" as a name ending.
HABEAS CORPUS PROCEEDINGS
Occupy Attention of Judge  Young
Today
Proceedings under the Habeas Corpus
Act were held yesterday afternoon,
before Judge Young, the case in question
being that of a white man named Edwin
Cochrane charged at Masset with having
supplied intoxicating liquor to an Indian woman and fined $150 or three
months' imprisonment in default
The fine was not paid and Cochrane
was accordingly brought under warrant
to Prince Rupert where proceedings to
secure his release under the terms of
the Habeas Corpus Act were instituted.
Several very nice points of law came up
in yesterday's discussion before the
judge, and were closely argued. Judge
Young had the case under consideration
today.

CITIZENS FIRST
FOR CITY WORK
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
Dominion of Canada, and the city of
Prince Rupert. Canada wants transient
laborers to build'her roads and railways,
Prince Rupert needs citizens to make
their homes here, people who will settle,
own a piece of ground, pay taxes, and
have families. It was not fair, he
thought, to give the city's work to
transients. He added that he was not
at all surprised that the laborer out
of work did not go to either Aid.
Pattullo or Aid. Mobley with his trouble.
Aid. Pattullo returned the compliment by saying pretty forcibly that he
fancied Aid. Hilditch had spoken a good
deal simply to make a point. In plain
language Aid. Hilditch was trying to
make capital out of the situation. For
Aid. Hilditch to state that grievances
of this kind exist, was not to clear the
situation.
The Mayor said that probably no
member of the city council knew more
about the unemployed than he did
himself for the simple reason that
everyone in search of work as a rule,
came to the Mayor. He had never
failed, he said, to place any laboring
man applying to him for work though
he said that in the case of a skilled
workman he had met with more difficulty.
Aid. Hilditch said that no fewer than
three men had approached him on this
subject in two days, and all he could
do was to say that he would try to
see what Mr. Thomson could do for
them.
The Mayor then suggested that bona
fide applicants for work of the resident
class might apply at the City Hall and
leave their names and addresses. Then
as far as possible work could be put
in the way of those who were deserving
as citizens. As far as he knew no man,
whether a resident or a transient, who
had applied to him for work had been
turned down if a genuine searcher for
employment.
Aid. Hilditch proposed that the city
clei'k should keep a list of the applicants'
names,
Aid. Pattullo remarked that there was
little need for workmen to go to any
alderman seeking for favors. He believed the condition existed more in Aid.
Hilditch's mind than anywhere else
after all
Aid. Barrow said that it seemed that
their idea of securing for the workmen
having families an eight hour day so
that they might have'some time at
home, was not turning out exactly as
they had intended. He spoke in defence
of the men whose names ended with
"vitch" or other foreign terminations,
saying that many of Prince Rupert's
foreign workers were Montenegrins and
excellent fellows. There must be stuff
in a nation whicn had preserved its
independence for so long. He had
talked with S. P. MeMordie on the subject of the nationality of laborers in the
city work and , while this contractor
was indifferent as to the nationality
of any good workman he learned from
him that at least seven English speaking
men had left the city grading work
preferring such jobs as carpenter's
assistants, etc. They did not generally
desire city grading labor evidently,
"and," said Aid. Barrow, "after all, we
can't compel people to work on our
streets." At the water works Aid.
Barrow had seen for the most part
English speaking men���not the class
who specialized in big families though!
Several men had applied to him for
help to find work, and he always recommended for the city work such men sa
he would have liked to employ himself.
Some he could not recommend because
he would not himself have employed
them.
Aid. Mobley then rose saying that now
he came to think of it Aid. Hilditch
rather reminded him of the boy who saw
the three hundred cats in the back
yard. He quoted the immortal words
of Robbie Burns:
"Oh, wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursel's as ithers see us!"
in reference to Aid. Hilditch, and declared himself ready to devote as much
interest to finding work for the resident
workman in the city as Aid. Hilditch
or any other member of the council
without making a big cry out of it to
raise political capital.
Aid. Hilditch said he was not making
any cry to raise capital. He was only
trying to help those in need of work. He
had employed all he could himself, and
done his best for those he could not
semploy.
Aid. Pattullo asked what he had done.
Aid. Hilditch replied that he had
seen the foreman of the streets' works,
the only man he had any say with. He
thought some other committees should do
their share in this too, and moved that a
list should be made available at the City
Hall for those bona fide resident workers
in need of employment to register their
names so that preference might be
given them for city work.
Aid. Naden emphasized the idea that
a waiting list of this kind could not
be efficiently maintained with fairness
to the applicants unless they called
regularly at the City Hall daily bo as to
ensure their being found when any
work was there for hem.
The Mayor pointed out that they muts
also take into consideration the length
of time the workman had been in the
city. He said there might be at any
time an influx of unemployed from
Stewart now that the snow was coming
there, and it would be necessary to
discriminate between said applicants and
the regular citizen workmen.
Aid. Hilditch said that that expressed
his idea exactly. It was the tax paying
citizens who should have the first
preference.
Aid. Barrow pointed out that the road
tax payers were probably the most
entitled to any preference, as they were
more likely to need work than those
who could afford to buy a lot.
Aid. Pattullo remarked that it was a
pity owing to some circumstances that
they could not employ larger numbers
of workmen on city work. He had
hoped this winter to have seen work
in hand for at least 300 extra men. '
Aid. Barrow suggested with a twinkle
that, incidentally, the city clerk might
collect a little revenue from the applicants which might help matters a
little financially.
At which there was a general smile
and the motion was then put and
carried.'

tonnage of high grade ore is last ac-
cummulating at the mine and the shipments are only limited by the ability to
secure transportation. George Beirnes,
who has the contract for the packing,
is pressing into service every available
pack horse, which are necessarily limited,
because of the big demand for goods to
outside points. Preparations will be
made during the winter months to
facilitate the handling of big shipments
in the early spring and summer which it
is calculated will be only limited to only

Dr. Ewing, presidtnt of the company

his return to town said that the property
never looked so well. The new tunnel.

Pub. Sept 16. B. L. Tingley, Agent
Washington, Oct. 17.���The fundamental characteristics of the Canadian banking system are treated in
detail by Prof. Joseph French John
son of the New York University, in a
volume just issued by the National
Monetary Commission.
"A chartered bank in Canada is a
bank of branches, not a bank with
branc.;e The parent bank, technically known as the 'head office,' neither
takes deposits nor lends money. All
the banking business is done by tha
branches, each enjoying considerable
independence, but all subject to the
supervision and control of the head
office. The law places no restrictions
upon the number or location of branches.
Canadian banks, therefore.have branches
in foreign countries as well as in Canada."
"The general bank act, under the
terms of which every bank obtains
and holds its charter, is subject to revision every ten years. Its present
form goes back substantially to 1890.
No bank can be organized with a capital
smaller than $600,000, of which all
must be subscribed and one-half paid
in before a new bank can open. As
a result of this requirement we are
not surprised at finding but twenty-
nine banks in Canada. These twenty-
nine have, however, 2200 branches.
"To one accustomed to the provisions
of our national banking law the Canadian regulations aB to note issue
and reserve are astonishing. The Canadian law does not require the banks
to deposit with a government official
or in any way set aside any kind of
security for the protection of the note
holder. Banks are not required to
carry a cash reserve against either
notes or deposits. The law does not
make the bank note a legal tender for
any payment. The government does
not guarantee the redemption of the
notes. Nevertheless, the Canadian bank
note is everywhere accepted at par,
no person since 1890 ever having lost
a dollar through the failure of a bank
to redeem its notes.
"Notes may be issued to the amount
of the paid-up capital of the bank.
These the bank mu t redeem at its
head office and in seven redemption
cities, which are the same for all banks.
Every bank must keep on deposit with
tbe minister of finance a sum of lawful
money equal to 6 per cent of its average
circulation, the entire fund being available for the redemption of the notes of
failed banks. Bank notes also possess
first lien upon the assets of a bank.
Further protection is given by the provision making stockholders liable to
assessment for an amount equal to the
par value of their . to k.

Squanders Hundred and Fifty Thousand in Two Years
Tacoma, Oct. 17.���Having squandered $160,000 in two years and having
brought a climax to his celebration by
signing a check for $26 when he had
only $7 left in the bank, Isaac Cathcart,
of Cathcart, Wash., is today behind the
i aiB of the city jail.
The young man was left a fortune
two years ago by his father, who built
and was the leading citizen of the town
of Cathcart. The young man spent
his money like water, buying precious
stones for womenof his acquaintance.
Yesterday he ran completely out of
funds. He created excitement Sunday
night when he fou d another man in
company with a woman for whom he
had bought $900 worth of diamonds and
to whom he was engaged. He was
badly beaten and remained in the hospital for several days.

DELIVERED TO ANY ADDRESS

EVERY DAY FOR
50c PER MONTH
Mr. E. M. Saunders, Manager of the
Moose Jaw branch of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, and president of the
Associated Boards of Trade of Western
Canada, visited Prince Rupert this
week on business and with a view to
interesting the local Board of Trade
members in the organization of the
Associated Boards of Trade of the western
provinces.
The Boards of Trade of the three
central western provinces have united
their general interests in the form of
an association under the above mentioned title for the purpose of gaining
a wider influence in the achievement
of their kindred aims. The provinces
of Alberta and Saskatchewan were the
first to associate in this manner, later
on of their own accord the Boards of
Trade of Manitoba came into the
association).
The association holds its annual conferences in each province in turn, the
various Boards of Trade sending their
delegates. This year the annual conference will be held at Lethbridge.
Mr. E. M. Saunders is desirous of
interesting .the Boards of Trade of the
Province of British Columbia in the
association, as the mutual interests of
the provinces are very numerous.
"For instance," says Mr. Saunders*,
"the prairie provinces look to British
Columbia almost entirely for their
supplies of lumber, fish and fruit, and
British Columbia in turn looks to the
prairies for wheat and all that the wheat
trade means. The opening of the
Panama Canal will greatly increase this
interest of the British Columbian coast
cities in the wheat trade as it is certain
that large quantities of wheat will be
sent to this coast for shipment via
the Pacific and the Panama Canal.
"The railway companies of Canada
are entitled to send delegates to these
annual conferences of the Associated
Boards of Trade though these delegates
are not entitled to vote with the delegates from Boards of Trade. But it
will be readily appreciated by business
men and members of Boards of Trade
throughout British Columbia that the
association of the Boards of Trade is
an excellent means -of improving and
fostering the growth of tbe business
interests of Western Canada. The affairs
of the association are dealt with by a
general secretary.
"It is not of course definitely agteed
that the Boards of Trade of British*
Columbia will link their broader interests
with those of the central western provinces in this way through the Associated
Boards of Trade, but should they do so
the advantages to all four provinces
will be many. The Association of the
British Columbia Board* of Trade with
those of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta would make various cities of
this province eligible as meeting places
for the annual, conference, in turn with
the other provinces."

Beverley, Mass*, Oct. 17.���President

York and assist in the campaign there.
Mr. Taft, it is said, "takes absolutely

The Dowager Queen Maria Pia of
Portugal has experienced troubles not a
few. Her brother, King Humbert of
Italy, was assassinated; another brother
Amadeus, was elected King of Spain in
1870, but abdicated in 1873, returning
to Italy as Duke of Aosta (he was father
of the Duke of the Abruzzi); her son,
Kiug Carlos of Portugal, and grandson,
the Crown Prince, were assassinated; and
her grandson, Manuel, has been deprived
of his throne.

"Names of Great Men���"
"God with us" is the interpretation
of Manuel. "Lover of God" is the
translation of Theophile, and Theophile
Braga is the head of the new Portuguese
Republic. Another Manuel is reigning
in Italy, and Theodore, "Gift of God,"
is the next King of the United States.
But the most incongruous combination
of monarchical names is that possessed
by the Kaiser, whose list embraces
Frederick (peaceful ruler), William (helmet of resolution), and Victor (conqueror).
