MR. WILSON ON CITY LIGHTING
NATIONALS  COMING  OUT
Talks of Proposed Purchase
ofPolesByCity.
He Strongly Advocates the Installation of a Temporary Lighting
Plant For City—Rupert's Pioneer
Firm Would Have Kept Up Supply.
"It is now a matter of arrangement with
the city council on the question of the
purcha e of the poles and wiring etc."
said G. I. Wilson yesterday evening
after the meeting with the city council.
"No, I am not prepared to say how much
we will accept for the plant, but I think
that after we have looked it over in
company with the mayor and city engineer we can strike a sufficiently satisfactory bargain with the city.
"On second thoughts we have decided not to leave with the Princess
Beatrice tomorrow, but to wait until
the matter is settled one way or another
before leaving Prince Rupert We shall
leave probably on Sunday."
SETTLERS ARE
IN BAD PLIGHT
FORT GEORGE SUPPLIES CUT OFF
BY LOW WATER
Government May be Called upon to
Assist Hardships Owing to Failure of Steamers to Navigate Fraser
Lake and no Staples on Hand
Victoria, Sept. 6.—A serious situation
in the Nechaco country is reported in
advices just at hand from Fort George,
which contains news that owing to the
failure of steamers to navigate Fraser
Lake, many of the settlers are already
sorely in need of staple supplies, while
the situation in regard to the winter is
even more alarming. The shortage of
stores in the Nechaco Valley is accentuated by the fact that a large quantity
of supplies was accidentally burned not
long ago while awaiting transportation.
It is understood that special efforts
will be put forth by the business interests
of Fort George to cope with the present
situation, although it is not improbable
that the government may also be asked
to assist.
The positive assurance of the completion of the Blackwater road before
the advent of winter, to furnish a dependable link of communication with
the outside world, would greatly relieve
the anxieties of interested settlers.
This road the Hon. Thos. Taylor some
time ago gave orders should be rushed
forward with the least possible delay,
difficulty in obtaining sufficient labor
heing the reason for its non-completion
ere this.
SCOUT MASTER JAILED
W>H Serve a Sentence of One Year
And Then Be Deported
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, Sept. lO.-Cuthbert Single-
, ' sc(>utmaster of the Baden-Powell
Mce, was brought up for trial this morn-
7 for the '"-treatment of a boy under
" ' ,The case was fully proven and he
was given a sentence of one year and after
that to be deported.
Princess Beatrice Goes South
Wincess Beatrice arrived soon after
"°°" from the north and left this after-
°n for Vancouver with a number of
""angers from this city.
From the trend of Mr. Wilson's
further remarks it would appear that the
idea of the B. C. Tie and Lumber Co's
supplying the light for the city of Prince
Rupert was one which figured high
in the company's programme previous
to the fire though at first the plant was
run at u loss and even now one would
fancy that the firms leading men would
readily lend their experienced aid towards
the solution of the city's lighting problem.
"There is apparently no longer an
opening for us or we might even think
of offering to instal a workable temporary
lighting plant for the city" said Mr.
Wilson "There can be no doubt that the
wisest plan Prince, Rupert can follow
in regard to the lighting question is to
depend on an efficient temporary electric
lighting plant for the next two years or
so, until the time is ripe and the financial position of the city ready for the
installation of a permanent scheme
adequate for' needs present and needs
to come for electrical energy in the rising
community."
THIRTY-ONE
WERE DROWNED
SISTER  SHIP CAME TO  RESCUE
MOMENT TOO  LATE
Pere Marquette Ferry Foundered
Just As Call For Help By Wireless
Had Brought Another Vessel TO
Her Assistance.
(Special to the Optimist)
Ludington, Mich., Sept. 10.—Thirty-
one lives are now known to have been
lost in the foundering of the Pere Marquette ferry. At the time the ferry
foundered she was making water fast
and was headed for the shore. The
captain saw that he was losing in the
race and he ordered car after car to be
dropped over the stern to lighten the
vessel and enable her to reach shore.
But all was no avail.
A wireless call for help, however,
brought the sister ship, upon which the
passengers and crew were hurried. Before all of them could be rescued the
ferry went down, and the list given of the
thirty-one may not include all who lost
their lives.
BALLINGER IS BANNED
Investigation Committee Finds That
He Was Untrue To His Trust
(Special to the Optimist)
Minneapolis, Sept. 10.—That Secretary Bellinger has not been true to his
trust as a cabinet minister, was the finding of four Democratic members of the
investigation committee. One insurgent
Republican also condemmed the minister,
declaring that he ought not to be retained in office.
HAMILTON  IS BETTER
Famous Aviator Unsconcious Long
Time After  His  Fall
(Specia to the Optimist)
Sacramento, Cal., Sept. lO.-Charles
Hamilton, who was rendered unconscious
by a fall from his aviator last night,
talked this morning his first question
being how the engines of his machine
were. He declared he would fly again
as soon as he could sit in his seat. It
was at first thought he had sustained
internal injuries that were likely to
prove fatal.
Will    Play    New    Westminster    on
Seventeenth  of  Month
Ottawa, Sept. 6.—P. D. Ross, Minto
Cup trustee, last night wired the New
Westminsters, ordering them to defend
the trophy against the Nationals of
Montreal on September 17th and 24th.
He has received the defenders' reply,
agreeing to his ruling.
The trustees have decided that Jack
Laviolette is eligible for the Nationals
in their Minto Cup games against new
Westminster.
STEEL REACHES
MILE SEVENTY
GENERAL SUPT. MEHAN EXPECTS
MORE RAPID PROGRESS
Suggests Celebration of Occasion
When Century Milepost is Reached
and Reports Discovery of Good
Ballast Material at Mile Sixty-five
General Superintendent Mehan of the
G. T. P. is well satisfied with the progress
being made with the track eastward.
Everything this week has gone exceptionally smooth and the steel is rapidly reaching out to link Prince Rupert
with the waiting East.
"Today we reach Mile Seventy,"
said General Superintendent Mehan to
the Optimist. "I am fully satisfied with
the progress made. Unless any difficult
bridge work causes any delay during
the next few days we shall shortly be in
sight of the mile post at which we
achieve our first century on the march
eastward and get into the three figure
mile posts."
"Are you going to celebrate the occasion of your arrival at Mile One Hundred?" asked the Optimist.
"Well, we ought to, I think," said the
General Superintendent with a smile.
"But nothing in that way has been
planned yet.
"I am pleased," he added, "at having
discovered a fine lot of ballast at Mile
Sixty-five, and intend while we are
waiting to get the track along to Mile
Ninety, to have the steam shovel set
to work at Mile Sixty-five to get out as
much as possible of this ballast before
we arrive at Mile Ninety so that the
work of ballasting the track laid may
make rapid progress also."

MEETING POSTPONED
j

'J
A committee of the board of trade
was to meet with the city council this
afternoon and confer in regard to railway taxation, but it was thought better to defer this meeting until after
the general meeting of the board of
trade on Monday evening, when the
board, representing the citizens, would
have formulated some suggestions to
lay before the council.
Winnipeg, Sept. 7.—The demand for
help in the harvest fields of Western
Canada is greater than there is at
present any hope of supplying according to C. P. R. officials, who announced yesterday that the call for
men is still as great as it has been
at any time since harvesting commenced. The railways it is said, made
an error in their calculations and at
this advanced date the C. P. R. officials
state that there is a scarcity of men in
farming sections which may yet be
serious. Applications are coming in
daily to the provincial immigration
office here and farmers throughout
the Western provinces are sending great
sheafs of letters to the C. P. R. asking
for men. It is estimated that 10,000
men and more are yet needed in order
that tne wheat growers may have
sufficient help in harvesting their crops.

Lord  Becomes  Aide-de-Camp
Captain Lord Percy, who has been
appointed an extra aide-de-camp to
Earl Grey, Governor-General of Canada, has seen many countries. Lord
Percy, whose ancestral home is Alnwick, Castle, Northumberland, is therefore a neighbor of Earl Grey's in England, as Howick Hall, the seat of
the Governor-General, is only some
six or seven miles northeast of Alnwick, the capital of Northumberland.
Lord Percy was employed with the
Egyptian Camel Corps when the sudden and some say tragic death of his
elder brother last Christmas made
him heir to the Dukedom of Northumberland, and he served in South
Africa nine years ago, where he came
in frequent contact with the troops
from Canada. His regiment is the
Grenadier Guards.

Fish, he nibbled at the hook,
Where the ripples play,
Gave it an indignant look
And then he swam away.
Man who sat within the boat
Thought, while waiting there,
Of temptations set afloat,
Promises so fair—
Gold brick lure and bunco bait,

'Mid the jubilation great
O'er a "sucker" caught!
Then a toast he quaffed anew
And they heard him say,
"Here's congratulations to
The fish that got away!"

FEATURING LOCAL FOODS
Commenting on the Optim'st's article on the advisability of local caterers
featuring fish the Toronto Star says:
"Similar complaints have been made by travelers in the Maritime Provinces.
They go there with visions of lobsters and fresh cod, and they find that the hotel
bills of fare are much the same as in Toronto or Winnipeg. The food may be excellent; the fish may be available for those who seek them diligently, but no attempt
is made to 'feature' these distinctively maritime products. A traveler on Lake Temis-
caming had an odd experience. He knew that the waters were swarming with fish,
and that on the shores millions of bushels of blueberries were going to waste. But
never a fish nor a blueberry appeared on that boat. Bacon and eggs composed the
bill of fare for breakfast, dinner and supper. It could not have been the meanness
or even thrift that caused this monotony, for chickens and porkers in that vicinity
must have been far more expensive than blueberries and fish. Perhaps the reason
is that people do not value highly what is easy to obtain. They are tired of the native
product and they forget that what is an old story for them would be a pleasing
novelty for the stranger. The "featuring" of local products would be a good stroke
of business not only for the caterer, but for the neighborhood."

Pacific Railway Company, has been making similar statements outside to what he
made here as to the scarcity of labor, and the consequent retarding of construction
work on the transcont nental railway. He did so at Victoria, but the Victoria Times,
in an editorial upon the subject that contains a gleam of hope, says: "The demand
for labor in all sections of the Dominion is so great at present that some time may
be required to overtake it. But if the volume of immigration continues to increase
as it has done of late—and there is every indication that it will—the Grand Trunk
Company will not long be hampered in its operations because of a shortage of labor."
We can only trust that th:s conclusion of the able writer may be  verified, j ~        ~~~
yet for the present there are evidences needed to support this optimistic view. Re- ] "* "** *"
cently the contractors at this end of the line gave orders that at least one hundred men
to work on the line should be shipped on the two big steamers of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Company. Four steamers have arrived since the order was given and only
the first of them carried a decent load of workers. Since then very few have taken
advantage of the relatively high wages offered. Still, the harvests are nearly over
and crowds of men seeking other avenues of livelihood are likely to come in great
numbers from now on.

The city council met at 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon the meeting being
called for the purpose of receiving the
representatives of the B. C. Tie and
Lumber Co. G. I. Wilson, Robert Kelly,
and James Ironsides in conference with
the council on the subject of the disposal
to the city of the salvage from the fire,
principally the electric light poles.
G. I. Wilson on the invitation of the
mayor said that had to come to state
the position of the B. C. Tie and Lumber
Co in this matter with a view to coming
to a satisfactory arrangement with the
city council. "In the early days of Prince
Rupert," he said " we had an agreement
with the G. T. P. to light the city, and
we went to considerable trouble to put
in the light, and ran at a loss for a long
time. We were most unfortunate in
having our business burnt out. We had
applied to the government for a charter
and after the fire the government was
approached on the matter and stated
that the city would take over the salvage.
The plant installed cost us upwards of
$16,000. After the fire we agreed after
some discussion with Mr. Clark and Mr.
Manson to figure the value of the pole
line etc at $7,895."
F. C. Sewell ran over the figures
showing how this sum had been arrived
at for the pole line and equipment at
ui out 75 cents on the dollar of cost.
"What do you gentlemen think we
should pay for the pole line, or what
proposition do you propose to make?"
establish the whole line."
Aid. Pattullo.—"How hiuch do you
think we ought to pay? The amount
stated?"
G. I. Wilson—"Well yes, I think that
would be a fair figure for you."
The Mayor.—"On looking over the
plant, I notice that the stuff seems to be
company , It was a business matter
anyway at present, and he would second
Aid. Pattullo's motion, which was carried.
G. I. Wilson then explained that he
and the other gentlemen intended to

to the value of the pole line at present,'

and what a new proposition of this kind
would cost us. These gentlemen wish
to treat us fairly,and though we are not
anxious to bear any proportion of their
loss, still we want to treat them fairly
too."
Aid. Hilditch.—"According to our
charter is it the value to us or the value
to the B. C. Tie and Lumber Co., of
the plant that is to be considered in the
matter of the purchase? A good deal
depends on the interpretation we put
on the clause in the charter concerning
this."
The mayor pointed out that the pole
line throughout the town was in poor
shape having been blown about by hig
winds, and said that the wire could not
be used.
G. I. Wilson.—"When the plant was
established there was a tacit understanding that we were to light the town,
and if we had not been burnt out we
should have actually been lighting the
city today." He thought the aldermen
should consider this, and suggested that
there was in a way a moral obligation
on the council in the matter.
Aid. Naden.—"As far as moral claim
The mayor said."As far as we know
the pole line doesn't seem to be worth a
 .only the company is in the position of being in possession of the field?"
Aid. Pattullo agreed, and said that
it was pretty sure that had they not
been burnt out the company would have
been lighting the city.
Aid. Naden said that the Board of
Trade agents figured that the plant
salved was worth from $1900 to $2300
after the fire, but it was its present value
that should be considered. He said that
the mayor and engineer could go round
the pole line and find it worth to the city
about $750, but if they offered the
company $2500 it would probably not
be accepted and Aid. Mobley thought
that an offer of $5000 would not be accepted either.

A Good Combination
A Joint Endowment Policy is similar
to an Ordinary Endowment Policy, only
that it is on the lives of two persons
instead of on one. This "Joint" idea
was first applied to partners in business
enterprises, but quite recently it has
been taken advantage of by husband
and • wife for the investment of their
savings and the protection of the home.
This combination costs much less
than two separate polices—to illustrate,
a regular Endowment policy on ONE
life for $1000, participating in profits,
in the SUN LIFE OF CANADA, at
age 30, calls for an annual premium of
$49.40; a Joint Endowment on TWO
lives both of the same age, costs onlv
$55.85-a difference of $6.45. The wife
who enters into this Joint Endowment
with her husband therefore gets the
protection of $1000 for $6.45 a year, or
an additional payment of less than two
cents a day. Should either die the
amount of assurance is paid to whoever
is named in the policy as beneficiary.
Should both survive the Endowment
period they then get the sum assured
with profits added.
When we recommend Endowment
Life Assurance, we do so with the utmost confidence, for it has long a
passed the stage of experiment. U
has made good its claims. The Sun
Life Assurance Company of Canada has
paid millions of dollars in matured endowments and the universal testimony
of its policy holders is that it is one of
the best ways to accumulate money
that would otherwise be spent on odds
and ends.
A Strong Feature
A strong feature of Endowment :
surance is that it compels saving. Too
many begin to save and grow weary at
the slowness and quit. The Endowment policy insists on its premium deposits being made, and in this way
trains the assured to gave systematical y.
Why h ls Better Than a Savings Bank
The many small balances in our Savings Banks are evidence that people
need assistance in the matter of saving
money. The thing we are compelled to
do we do, but the thing that is optional
is often left undone. Even although
the Savings Bank way of saving were
persisted in, it falls short of Endow-
mant Assurance, inasmuch as the estate, in the event of death, is only
represented^ the amount of deposit,
with interest, whereas the Endowment
policy is worth to the estate the full
face value of the policy the moment
the first payment has been made.
Looks After Old Age
Endowment assurance, by thus forcing the saving of money, is more particularly seen to be a blessing when the
years have passed and brought with
them declining strength. It is then
that the result of the • efforts of early
saving is appreciated.
It is sad to be unprovided for in old
age.
The possessor of an Endowment policy is laying up in his productive years
for the time when such help will be
urgently needed.
A Word About the Company
The Sun Life Assurance Company of
Canada is one the strong financial institutions of Canada. The Company
commenced business in 1872, ami has
had a marvellous record of steady
growth. It is under the direct supervision of the Government of Canada,
and reports to the British Board of
Trade and many Insurance Departments of the United States and other
countries, and enjoys the confidence of
them all.
Policyholders, everywhere,  speak in
the highest terms of the liberal treatment accorded them.
The Company ls Noted as a Profit-
paying Company
The profitable character of the business of the Sun Life of Canada, has
enabled dividends to be declared to the
Company's policyholders on a scale
which has given great satisfaction, ana
which, it is believed, are not surpassed
on this continent.
Any further information regarding
the Company or any of its policies win

FAME CAME TOO
SLOWLY FOR HER
DISAPPOINTED   YOUNG   WOMAN
TRIED KILLING HERSELF
Canadian Pacific Railway
Even In This She Was Unsuccessful
And While Life Hangs In the
Balance She It Attempting to
Hide Her Identity.
New York, Sept. 4—Little hope is
held out today for the recovery of
Vera Fitch, daughter of the la'.e Henry
Fitch of Oakland Cal., who shot herself
at the Hotel Astor. The beautiful young
woman came here from California to
gain fame as a writer, and becoming
discouraged, tried to end her life.
She was identified early today by her
mother.
Miss Fitch still seeks to conceal
he identity, saying to the nurses:*
"You can question me until next year
but I will not tell you who I am. My
people are self-respecting folk, and
I will not bring them into this "
The young woman lived here with
her sister Grace, formerly a San Francisco belle, now the wife of Roy W.
Conger, a nephew of the late Edwin H.
Conger, former minister to China.
Miss Fitch was formerly popular in
army society in San Francisco. She
was then following her literary work
writjng for magazines. Her father
was a Mexican war veteran who was
breveted for bravery. He captained
one of the emigrant bands that crossed the plains in wagons at the time
of the California rush.

An   Old   Song   Rejuvenated
I can not wear the old hair
I   wore   some   months   gone   by.
I've   laid   it   on   the   topmost   shelf
With many a weary sigh.
No  longer  are  they  wearing  puffs,
And rats are quite de trap;
I can not wear the old hair
Oh, what a cruel blow!
I can not wear the old hair,
For which good gold I paid
Red hair is so expensive when
One gets the proper shade.
I felt so dressed when it was coiffed,
All little puffs and curls;
But I can't wear the old hair,
Alas for Fashion's whirls!
I can not wear the old hair,
Four switches I must buy
And wind them round and round my
head
As flat as they will lie.
My face is far too plump for this;
My nose is much too long;
But I can't wear the old hair,
It's altogether wrong.

Although the railroad is still some
distance from the Bulkley Valley and
despite the fact that trains into this
territory will not be running for probably two years many towns are being
started along the right-of-way of the
road.
Among the first to spring into existence
was Sealey, the present base of supplies
furnace room supplying steam heat for
the whole building, two large storerooms and toilet accommodations for
the grill room and bar.
The feature of the second floor will
be the fine double parlors occupying the
front each 16 ft 8 in x 23 feet in dimensions. All the bedrooms on the floor,
and throughout the hotel average not
less than twelve feet aquare. There will
be altogether forty-two bedrooms in
the building and their furnishing will
! be on a par with that of the rest of the
for the Bulkley Valley ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Sealey is located on a flat overlooking j building—the very finest that can be
the Skeena River and on the north side | obtained.
of the railroad. It is thus a river port
as well as a railroad town and at present
all boats call there.
No prettier or better spot could have
been picked for the town that is destined to be the big city of the Upper
Skeena and the center of trade for the
Bulkley Valley.
Business houses from the neighboring
towns are locating at Sealey and in a
short while it is predicted that lots in
the town will be almost at a premium
and that the present investors will
realize very large profits on their investments.

TWO BROTHERS FOUND DEAD IN
CELLS OF LOCKUP
Both Had Been Drinking Heavily
And Were Taken To Police Lockup
Where a Physician Prescribed For
Them.
Nelson, Sept. 7.—At Cranbrook two
brothers Walter and Robert Hoag,
were taken in by the police on Sunday suffering from severe alcoholism.
They had been in town for a week
and were known to be drinking heavily. They were taken to the police
lockup and the doctor prescribed for
them. During Monday they showed
signs of betterment and yesterday
morning at 2 o'clock were resting
quietly when the jailer attended to
their wants. His surprise was great
when at 7 o'clock he found both of
them dead in their cells.
The chief of police communicated
with Dr. Connolly, the coroner, who
directed that an inquest be held. The
enquiry was adjourned until this afternoon in order to have a postmortem
examination of the remains made, it
being considered by the jury an ex-
tradordinary occurrence that both brothers should die at the same time, of
the same cause

PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. SEPTEMBER 10, 1910
DEPLORES THE
LACK OF LABOR
CLAIMS  IT IS DETRIMENTAL TO
FLOW OF CAPITAL
Ch.irm.n Smithers of th. Grand
Trunk Pacific Says Five Thousand
More Men Could be Employed on
Construction Work
The flow of British capital to British
Columbia and to Canada generally is
mat and increasing but the scarcity and
toot of labor is acting as a considerable
detOTent" ■    w       »     -ar
"The question,"   said   Mr.   A.   w.
Smithers, chairman of the board of
directors of the Grand Trunk railway
to the Colonist yesterday, "is one which
requires the attention of corporations
and governments. Efforts should be
made to try to bring the cost of labor to
i point where it will still pay to bring
money into the country. A great deal of
the present prosperity of Canada is due
to the enormous dvelopment works
which are being carried on. But even in
connection with hese development
works the necessary labor cannot be obtained. Take the instance of the Grand
Trunk Pacific. In British Columbia
alone 5,000 more men could be employed
on the construction w..rH which is going
on. Not only is this fact delaying the
work and allowing a large amount of
capital to lie idle, but the railway company itself cannot be remunerated for its
work until the line is built through to
the coast.
"Before we und rtook the construction
of this national railroad, we had no idea
that the cost of labor was so great. This
factor has added enormously to the
original estimate of the cost of the road.
"I believe that though great care has
been taken to make the Dominion emigration laws work as little hardship as
possible the desire to keep out of the
country those regarded as physically unlit has had the general effect of deterring many splendid strong men from
coming in. For there are numerous families who for fear of being separated will
not emigrate. England has no restrictions to her emigration. She takes in
everybody, for she believes that n try-
'■ "■« to shut out the undesirables, she is
also shutting out many who are desirable
in every respect. Similarly Canada is
strong enough to pursue a more liberal
Nicy in regard to her immigration laws.
It is time enough for restrictions to be
imposed when too many undesirables
nave come in, or when the population
Pows too large.
"Never until my present trip have I
nad an adequate idea of the vast r*>
«">«« of this wonderful Dominion, and
f consequently never had greater faith
™ them than now. But I do not think
m Canadians generally appreciate the
*'»y in which the cost and scarcity of
'»bor is hampering her development, and
Believe that these two factors will have
ne effect of hampering other new enterprises which are now being projected.
Another effect of the high wages is that
Wwers are abie t0 earn intermittently
« much as they formerly could through
«e% employment. As a result the
P^uet of labor isle*. It must be re-
membered that in a new country, how-

FIERCE FIGHT  IN WASHINGTON
SUDDENLY ENDED
Senator Wilson, Republican, withdraw* in Favor of Life-long Democrat after a Campaign of Vulgar
Abuse by Wilaon Newspaper*
Seattle, Wash., Sept. 3.—The formal announcement of former Senator
Wilson's withdrawal from the race is
contained in the following:
"The political situation in the state
in relation to the U. S. senatorship
so far as the candidates of Judge Thomas
•Burke and former United States Senator
John L. Wilson were concerned, having
become acute friends of both candidates appealed to the highest Republican authority to attempt a solution,
defeat staring both of them in the face
if both stayed in the race.
Both candiadtes were asked to get
together and it was suggested that
one should withdraw in the interest
of party harmony. Meetings were
held, Judge Burke and his friends
declining to yield. Former Senator
Wilson, while believing himself to be
the stronger candidate, decided to
withdraw for these two reasons:
First—In order to meet the views
of the official head of the Republican
party in this nation.
Second—That the electorate of Seattle and King county might present
an undivided front and secure a senator for King country and Washington.

Columbia but it also has many of the
B. C. popular characteristics. C. D.
Newton is the Prince Rupert agent for
Ellison townsite and full information
can be secured from him. See his add
on another page in this issue.
The first inland townsite on the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway east of Prince
Rupert is now being put on the market.
The townsite has been divided into lots
with 33 feet frontage and 120 feet deep,
and 250 lots have already been disposed
of. The new town is Ellison, situated
on the bank of the Skeena river and 172
miles of Prince Rupert. It will be the
first divisional point east and will be an
important railway point. Ellison is
also the hub of the fertile Buckley Valley
and it is surrounded by an immensely
rich mineral belt. Valuable discoveries
of gold, silver ,lead and copper have been
found and immense coal fields have been
staked. These mineral properties are
being devoloped now, but are handicapped for want of transportation.
This the Grand Trunk Pacific will provide. All these things will make Ellison
a big and busy town and its growth will
start at once, in fact there are many there
now. The geographical location of
Ellison is worthy of mention. It is on
the bank of the picturesque Skeena river
and just about on the border of the wet
and dry belt. The scenery is magnificent. No matter which way you look
there is something grand and entrancing.
The town will be a popular residential
one and many summer home will be
built there in the near future. The
climate is unsurpassed.    It is more like

just returned from his station in the
Killisnoo district of Alaska where he
has been working amongst the Indians.
Capta'n Kerr has been studying the
Khlinket language, but declares that
his progress with t does not at a 1 satisfy
him. "It is a very difficult language"
he says "considerably more difficult
than the Chinook dialect. I would undertake to acquire some facility with the
chinook language much sooner than I
have found possible with the Khlinket tongue."
Captain Kerr is going to div'de his
attention this fall between Fort Simpson
and Port Essington spending two weeks
in each place at a time.
At the end o this month the Salvation
Army battalions all over the world will
be holding their Harvest Festival, and
just about that time Ensign and Mrs.
Johnson are expected to arrive in Prince
Rupert where the Salvation Arm are
now going to establish a citadel.   So far
Victoria, Sept. 3.—Charles M Hays,
president of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Company, last night entertained
the members of the provincial cabinet
and a few of their friends to a dinner at
the Empress hotel. Practically all the
members of the Grand Trun party were
present, and of the local people there
were Premier and Mrs. McBride, Hon.
F. Carter-Co ton, Hon. Price Ellison
and Mrs. Ellison, Hon. J. W. Bowser,
Hon. Dr. and Mrs. Young, Hon. T.
Taylor and Mrs. Taylor, Hon. D. M.
and Mrs. Eberts, J. S. H. and Mrs.
Matson, Charles H. Lugrin and Mrs.
Lugrin, J. P. Mabee, K. C, chairman
of the railway commission, and Dr.
James Mills, of the railway commission.
People Burned Out Again
Fairbanks, Aug. 6.—For the second time since he has been in business
in this city, E. R. Peoples, a local merchant, lost heavily through fire, his
warehouse on Garden island and stock
to the value of $45,000 being burned
Sunday afternoon in a blaze believed to
have been due to spontaneous combustion.
If there is anything good to eat in
town the Ideal Provision House will
certainly have it. 105-108.

One Hundred Years of Peace
One hundred years of peace have been
nearly completed between Great Britain
and the United States, and a proposal
is being made that it shall be celebrated
in some striking manner, says Public
Opinion.
"A committee entitled 'The National
Committee for the Celebration of the
One Hundredth Anniversary of Peace
Among English-speaking People' has
been formed to give effect to the suggestion," says the Times. Mr. Carnegie
is chairman, and Mr. Taft is to be invited to become honorary president but
a brilliant young Canadian—Mr. Mackenzie King, the minister of labor—
has the honor of making the suggestion.
"If," says the Oo8eroer,"the idea of
celebrating the hundred years of peace
is taken up with sufficient insight and
earnestness under both flags a remarkable
opportunity may lead to very memorable
results."
This area of peace runs from the signing of the Treaty of Ghent in 1814
between the two countries.
Then There's Something Doing For
Vou in Prince Rupert.
Busy Prince Rupert housewives thinking about fruit next week are probably
turning their attention towards the
business of canning the seductive peach
and they could not find a more opportune
time. Peaches, especially Alberta peaches
are now at about the cheapest they will
go this season and wise housewives will
get busy if they want to do any canning.
This will be found a pretty good time
for green stuff in Prince Rupert. A big
fresh consignment has just arrived including new green corn, parsley, celery,
new head lettuce, as well as cucumbers
and pumpkins suggestive of most delectable pie.
A chat about Prince Rupert's fruit
supply with R. C. Bill who represents
the firm of Elworth and Radford of
Seattle in this city, brings out the fact
that Prince Rupert is keen on fruit.
"At least five kind of grapes comes
into the city" he said "Here you have
the two finest kinds, these big red ones
are Tokays and these white ones Malayas,
which have a flavour all of their own
and are a favorite. The Muscat grape
is also a white one, and the Black Prince
and Black Ferara, as their names suggest, are of the dark variety. All kinds
at present come from California, and
this is a great week for grapes, let me
tell you, in Prince Rupert, You can
buy every sort, and better than usual
today.
"Apples of course are coming in now
in quantity. Your fine eating apples
usually find their way here from Seattle.
Cooking apples come from Vancouver
mostly."
R. C. Bill was bending over a box of
rosy Jeffrey apples as he spoke. "You
bet I'm busy" he added "but this is one
of the largest lots of fresh fruit Ed.
Clarke has handled this fall," and a
glance around the floor of Mr. Clarke's
wholesale warehouse piled with the
fragrant white wood cases amply supported the assertion.
CYCLONE   AT   CRESSON

Nelson, B. C, Sept. 9.--A cyclone
visited Creston last night and did considerable damage. Plate glass windows
in stores were ripped out, large sheds
blown down and heavy timbers carried
to a distance of two hundred feet. The
guests in the Murphy hotel were alarmed
and thought an earthquake had struck
the town.

PERSONAL CHARACTER OF KING GEORGE V
Prominent British Journalist Pays Tribute to Our New Sovereign
For His Many Manly Attributes and Kingly Qualities.
"The Personal Character of King
George" is the subject of an interesting
article by Mr. W. T. Stead, in "The
Review of Reviews." The article is
comprehensive, and claims to be an authoritative reply to certain calumnies
which have been circulated concerning
his Majesty.
The subject is admittedly a very unpleasant one to raise, but as it has been
raised Mr. Steel says it must be set-
led once for all. "Is it, or is it r*>t a
fact," he asks, "that King George is a
person of intemperate habits? Or is
he, as Lord Rosebery and the Dean of
Norwich have proclaimed, a man of
examplary life?" For answer Mr.
Stead points to his Majesty's excellent
reputation among those who know him
most intimately.
"The King," he says, "has always
been remarkable for the punctuality
and unfailing regularity with which he
has always performed all of his functions. He has kept all of his appointments, and he has kept them on time.
Nor has there ever been, so far as I
can ascertain, after a rigorous examination of the stories current, even the
shadow for the foundation of the cruel
calumny of which he has been made the
subject."
Continuing, Mr. Stead declares that
so far as being given to intemperance,
King George V is probably "the most
abstemious King who has ever ascended the English throne." It is recalled
that the King's record as a youth at
sea was examplary, "and as he is now,
so he has been all his life—sober, temperate and abstemious." Further, Mr.
Stead points out that the King could
not be famous as one of the best shots
in the Kingdom, a distinction requiring
(or its winning great sureness of aim
and steadiness of arm, if he were not
a very temperate man.
Then there is the more   malignant
falsehood described by Mr. Stead as
"a Maltese myth," according to which
King George was married to an admiral's daughter at the Mediterranean
Island at a time when he never expected to be called to the throne. In a letter quoted by Mr. Stead, Sir Henry
Ponsonby, for many years the trusty
private secretary of Queen Victoria,
dismisses the story as ridiculous, pointing out that similar stories have been
circulated by idle gossipers about all df
the royal family. But Mr. Stead is able
to bring indirectly the even more emphatic repudiation of King Edward.
"I submitted through a mutual
friend," he writes, "a series of questions to the late king, who was then
Prince of Wales. They were very precise, categorical and covered the whole
ground from A to Z. The king, than as
always, was very courteous, and ex-
Iressed his utmost readiness to go into the whole matter. In reply I received a most categorical, definite and
emphatic repudiation of the whole
story. He denied absolutely the story
of the alleged marriage, morganatic or
otherwise. He asked, not unnaturally,
if the prince was married as was alleged, where was the marriage register, and who was the clergyman who
performed the illegal ceremony? If the
lady in question was an admiral's
daughter, could it be that her father
tolerated a clandestine marriage conducted in defiance of the law without
the knowledge of the prince's parents.
He also pointed out the'various other
inherent improbabilities of the story,
and finally gave me his most positive
assurance that the story was a lie from
beginning to end, and, what is more, a
lie so ridiculous that it could not impose upon anyone with the slightest
knowledge of the royal family, or of
the navy or of the church.
"It   follows,   therefore,"   Mr.   Stead
adds, "that the whole of the fairy story
falls to the ground. The matter was also brought, although not by me, to the
attention of the present king, who treated it, as all the rest of the family did,
as one of those absurd fictions apparently
invented for the purpose of testing the
gullibility of the public."
Dealing with King George's personal
traits, Mr. Stead declares that "no
monarch has ever ascended the English
throne with a higher sense of public
duty or a more humble dependence upon his Maker."
"His Majesty is a much keener politician than his father, for whom he
cherishes the most filial affection as
'the best and kindest friend he had
in the world'. In conversation he is
much more consecutive than his father, who has a habit of abruptly jumping from one subject to another in a
way that was somewhat disconcerting
to those unaccustomed to the natural
result of the royal prerogative always
to lead a conversation. He frequently
attended the debates of the house of
lords, and was often to be seen in the
gallery of the house of commons.
"In the free-and-easy discussion that
takes place after dinner he is a keen,
voluble and somewhat loud-voiced disputant. He has his own views, which
he knows how to express with vigor
and emphasis. He has also a knack of
picturesque description of scenes in
which he has taken part, and his public
speeches have shown that, as he has
an eye to see, so he has a tongue to
describe scenes which impress themselves upon his imagination. For he
has an imagination, which is fired by
the greatness of the position of England in the world, and a lofty ambition
to play his part worthily in carrying
on that great providential mission
which has been entrusted to British beyond the seas."
AN EXAMPLE
OF HYPOCRISY
RUSSIAN   NEWSPAPER   ATTACKS
JAPANESE POLICY
Claim* that Japan's Attitude toward
Corea is "An Historical Example of
Shameless Hypocrisy" and Says
Russia's Interests are Insignificant
St. Petersburg, Sept. 4.—The text
of the treaty by which the Korean
Kingdom was annexed to the Empire
of Japan was published here yesterday, and in the case of the Novoe
Vremya, was accompanied by a bitterly
sarcastic editorial. •
The document, the paper says, constitutes "an historical example of shameless hypocrisy." The judicial importance
of the treaty is null, says the Novoe
Vremua.
The Novoe Vremya adds that Russia's interests in the "Hermit Kingdom" are insignificant, and for that
even Russian diplomacy will not raise
its voice in protest.
The United States and Great Britain have been hard hit, in the opinion
of the editor, who however, concludes
that as war is the sole means of annulling an accomplished fact, the situation was accepted,' for assuredly
nobody would go to war for Korea.
WILL CO TO HAWAII .
Steamer   Prince   Rupert   to   Carry
Excursionist in February
It has been announced at the offices of
the Grand Trunk Pacific in Vancouver
that negotiations for the chartering
of the Prince Rupert to carry a party
of Northwestern business men , from
Seattle,   Tacoma,   Portland,   Spokane
and other cities to Honolulu in February had been concluded. The trip
will be made under the auspices of the
Seattle Chamber of Commerce. The
Prince Rupert will leave on February
1 and return February 28. As the
coastwise traffic laws also apply to
the Hawaiian Islands, it is probable
that the steamship will depart from
and arrive at Vancouver or Victoria.
Later advices state that the secretary
of the Seattle Chamber of Commerce
has received so many applications for
the trip that an attempt is being made
to secure the Prince George also for the
trip.

VENUS NOW IS
THE ATTRACTION
MORE LIKELY TO BE POPULATED
THAN MARS
Astronomer McMillan Discovered
That Venus Has An Atmosphere
Closely Assimilating to That of
This    Mundane Sphere.
Chicago, Sept. 5.—Venus, more probably than Mars, is inhabited by
living beings, according to a statement of Prof. Duncan McMillan of
the astronomical department of the
University of Chicago. This statement was made by Professor McMillan after having read the announcement of Professor See, in charge of
the naval astronomical bureau at Mare
Island, Cal., in which he said that
he was convinced that the planets
revolving about the fixed stars were
inhabited by some kind of intelligent
beings.
The statement by the California astronomer was ridiculed by Professor
McMillan, who said that it was sum-
ply a guess on Professor See's part.
Inasmuch as there are at least 100,-
000,000 stars that are known to exist, it is safe to say that some of them

Professor McMillan offers proof to
support his statement by saying he
has found that atmospheric conditions surrounding the planet Venus
are similar to those about the earth,
hence in his opinion it is impossible that
that planet is uninhabited, while it would
be impossible to sustain life in the climate
which he believes surrounds Mars.
