FAMOUS SCIENTIST DEAD
| DISCOVERER OF THE GERMS OF
THE WHITE PLAGUE.
I Premature Discovery Of His Laboratory Results Led To Quackery���One of the Most Famous
Physicians   in the  World.
(Special to the Optimist).
Baden Buden,  May 28.���Kock,  the
Ifonous bacteriolist,  passed  away this
Imoming after an extended illness and
���much suffering.
Professor Koch was one of the most
Itaous physicians in the world and his
I time will be attached to many important
Ijiwveries other than that of phythisis,
Iwiimonly known as consumption, was
Jtwsed by bacteria. The results of his
���experiments in inoculation as a remedy
I for the dread disease were given to his
I class, and he did not desire to have them
I made public until further experiments
I confirmed the results shown by the first.
���But the news that consumption could
I be cured by inoculation spread all over
I the world, and hundreds of fraudulent
I nostrums were immediately advertised
I as the Koch cure. This was one of the
) regrets of the latter part of the
I great scientist's career.
HANDBOOKS   TO   CRIME.
I Dime Novel   Reading   Incites   Boy
To  Dastardly   Deeds.
[Special to the Optimist].
St. John, N. B., May 28.���The police
j caused a great sensation here yesterday
by the arrest of a boy of sixteen named
McLaughlin for .torturing a boy of
seven years of age.  It appears that Mc-
I Laughlin is a greedy readerof dime novels
and that to pay Indians dramatically
he enticed several younger children
to a secluded spot and there tortured
I them. One of the victims was partially
I scalped and the boy of seven, who is
likely to die as a result, was tied to a
I stake and a fire started at his feet.
Political Donnybrook.
Newmarket, May 28.���(Special)���One
I man is dead, a dozen seriously injured
land over a hundred more or less hurt aa
I M result of a clash between the followers of the United Irish league and
|he Nationalists at the election which
I WW place here yesterday. During the
loosing hour at the polls there was a
I ����w fight and it is  feared others may
aie from the effect of the injuries re-

Chicago May 25,���Cy Warman, under the management of E. A. Stavrum,
is on a three weeks tour lecturing on
the subject of Canada. He delighted
a large audience at the Davidson the-
eatre, Milwaukee last night and will
close his tour at the Garrick theatre
here Sunday night. The lectures are
illustrated by slides and are some of
the best pictures ever seen in Chicago.
TWO MEN ARE DROWNED
LAND SLIDE CARRIED THEM INTO
THE     RIVER.
Never Seen Again Except One Man's
Hand Aa The Current Swept
Him Down Stream���Bodies May
Never Be Recovered.
Word has been received in the city
this morning of two men having been
drowned in the river near Lorne Creek.
They belonged to a gang of station men
who were blasting at about mile 130.
Their names are not known and nothing
else is known about them except that
they were Austrians. The accident was
caused by a big land slide which carried
the two men along with it into the river
and that was the last seen of them except that one man's hand was seen as
the swift current swept him down
stream. That the bodies will ever be
recovered is very doubtful unless they
happen 4o wash ahore. Besides the
two men, several cars and part of the
track was also swept away.
Next Viceroy to India.
London, May 28.���(Special)���according to the Western Morning News, Lord
Kitchener will be the next viceroy to
India. The statement is said to have
been made with authority.
The city council will meet this evening to hear reports from the various
committees and to get more business
under way.
BEARS IN WHEAT PIT.
Armour Gives His Old Enemy Patten
A  Bad     Fall.
(Special to the Optimist)
Chicago, May 28,���Smashing the
prices of wheat right and left in order to
defeat and humiliate his old enemy
Plunger Patten, Armour yesterday caused a panic in the wheat market, and May
options were forced down two and a half
cents. Foreign cable reports that heavy
heavy bunches of stocks were in course
of transit helped the tumble. The
excitement was intense just at the close
of the market and it is feared that a
number of the smaller brokers will have
to "walk" this morning. It is feared
that the downward tendency will be
the feature of the market when it opens
this morning.notwithstanding the cheering reports of crop conditions that are
daily coming in.
FOR BRITAIN'S DEFENCE
SPEECHES OF LOYALTY AT AUSTRALIAN BANQUET.
Lord Kitchener And Sir George
Reid Say Britain's sons Across
The Seas Will Rally To Keep The
Old   Flag  Flying.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, May 28,���Lord Kitchener
speaking at the Australian banquet
last night on the subject of imperial
defence and reviewing the steps being
taken in this respect by the several
British dependencies, devoted much
to the progress made by the Australians.
There, he said, they were proceeding on
a good basis and the policy of the Common
wealth was one which promised continuity. Thus in time the Australians
would be able to solve many of the military problems that gave so much trouble
elsewhere.
Sir George Reid, who presided, taking up this part of Lord Kitcheners
speech observed that Australia had
already made a beginning in the creation of a fleet and an army, and he had
confidence that the good work would
go on as the people of his country had
taken it up with so much enthusiasm.
And whatever danger threatened the
Empire all the ships and soldiers
Australia might possess would be found
on the firing line. Canada also, South
Africa and all the overseas countries
floating the British flag would be ready
to tender timely aid. The future Trafalgar or Waterloo might be anywhere,
but wherever it should be the sons of
Britain across the seas would stand by
the old flag and keep it flying.
All through, the patriotic words of
Sir George were enthusiastically ap
plauded.
BIG SCOTCH FIRM COMING
REPRESENTATIVE ON HIS WAY
HERE NOW
Will Handle All Kinds Of Construction Work And Expect To Employ
About 5,000 Men When Established
and in Operation.
An Important Scotch construction
firm may make their Canadian headquarters in Prince Rupert. The follow,
ing was taken fromthe   Winnipeg   Free
"A representative of a well-known English firm of railroad contractors, is at
present in the city, engaged in furthering
a business proposition which may eventually result in the employment of about
5,000 men in Canada. The man who has
this important scheme afoot is an enterprising young Scotchman, Alex. K.
Robertson, C. E., who is a member of the
firm of the McAlpine-Robertson Construction company, which has from time
to time carried out important construction work in the old country. They are
centering their attention upon the Dominion, and Mr. Robertson arrived at
the Royal Alexandra last night from
Montreal, where he has been engaged in
important business during the last three
weeks. Mr. Robertson told a Free Press
reporter that he did not want to exaggerate the importance of his visit, but he
quoted facts which prove that the enterprise is by no means an unimportant
one. "I have come out here for two or
three months," he said,"and I am going
to keep my eyes open. We have decided
to open out in Canada, and I have now
to determine which is the best place to
establish our headquarters. They will be
at one of the following seven places:
Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg,
Calgary, Vancouver or Prince Rupert.
I am going west in a few days' time,
but I shall call at Winnipeg again on
my way back and spend two or three
weeks   here."
This firm is well worth the while of the
Board of Trade, the Public City Club
and the council looking after.

WHARF RATES CUT DOWN
GRAND TRUNK KEEPING PROMISE MADE HERE.
Company Will Reduce Rates For
Wharfage By Fifty Per Cent As
Soon As Their Steamers Begin To
Run.
A. E. McMaster, resident agent of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, gave good news
this morning that the heavy wharfage
rates charged by his company were to be
cut in half next month. He said
Freight Superintendent J. E. Dalrymple
and other Grand Trink traffic officials
were here in January, they were met by
the Board of Trade and to that body Mr.
Dalrymple made a promise to reduce the
wharfage rates at Prince Rupert,
on general merchandise as soon as the
company's own boats were in operation.
This has not been done. Mr. McMasters
has received advices from Mr.
Dalrymple to reduce the wharfage
rates on general merchandise to fifty
cents per ton.
"This is cutting the rate in two,"said
Mr. McMaster this morning, and the
cut will be in force immediately after
the inauguration of our steamship
service, which will open at this port June
16th. It is now up to the shippers of
Prince Rupert to keep their promise."
The steamer Skeena will go up the
river to-night with a full load of freight
and 75 or 100 passengers, most of whom
will work on Foley, Welch & Stewart's
contract.
TERRIBLE   BUSH    FIRES.
Relief Trains For Settlers Sent From
Winnipeg
(Special ot Optimist).
Winnipeg, May 28,���Heavy bush
fires are raging along the line of the
Swan River branch of the Canadian
Northern railway and it is feared many
settlers will perish. The wires are burned
down and no definite information can
be obtained from the districts over
which the fire is said to have already
extended. A wide range of country is
known to be under flames and relief
trains are being sent out from here this
morning as fast as they can be made up
with thc necessary men and supplies.
STABBED HIS SWEETHEART
INDIANS   QUARREL,   WITH   SERIOUS   RESULTS
Ledia Calvert Was Stabbed Near
The Heart. Dr. Eggert Was
Called And Had Her Removed
To The Hospital Early This
Morning.
Captain Wearmouth, who has been
master of the Henriette, has been
promoted. He is going south by the first
boat to take charge of the Prince Albert.
Edward Leighton, an Indian, was arrested this morning about 2 o'clock,
by Constable Derry, and now awaits
trial. An Indian girl, known as Ledia
Calvert was stabbed near the heart
and in one of her hands.and Leighton is
accused of having committed the deed.
The girl lives with two or three other
women in a cabin opposite the Royal
Lunch and Leighton had the habit of
spending considerable time with Ledia. A
quarrel arose last night which had seriou
results.
So far, the police have not been able
to gather very minute details. Mrs.
Sam Pearce, the mistress of the house,
refused to talk to the officers and as the
injured girl was removed to the hospital
early in the morning, she has not yet
been questioned by the police. It is
understood, however, that she accuses
Leighton of having committed the deed,
and it is also understood that the quarrel
was caused by their love affairs.
Leighton was brought before a justice
of the peace this morning and remanded
for a week pending the recovery of the
girl, and also to give the police an opportunity to gather more evidence.
Dr. Eggert was called to attend the
wounded girl and he had her removed to
the hospital.
Leighton is a Metlakatla Indian, son
of Joseph Leighton. He has been engag-
at the Premier Hotel for some time.
Ex-Indian Agent Morrow stated he
was greatly surprised, as Leighton was a
good, quiet boy, and that whisky must
be at the bottom of the trouble.
DR. EGGERT'S STORY.
Dr. Eggert was seen by the Optimist
and he stated that Leighton called
him about 2 o'clock this morning.
He was apparently under the influence
of liquor and greatly excited. He had no
coat or vest on and his shirt was all
blood. He told the doctor to hurry and
when they arrived at the cabin they
folnd the girl unconscious on the bed.
Her upper garment was torn open
and quite a pool of blood was soaking
her clothes and the bed. Upon examination the doctor discovered a wound
about half an inch wide and an inch
and a half deep just over the heart.
He considers it must have been a downward stab or it would have punctured
the heart. As it is that organ is uninjured. The doctor administered res-
orative and the girl recovered consciousness. Later she was removed to the
hospital and is now doing nicely and will
recover   unless  other  troubles  set  in.
Dr. Eggert said a half breed was also
in the house when he arrived and claimed
to be a constable. Leighton accused
him of doing the stabbing and the half
breed accused Leighton. The latter
appeared very anxious to keep the doctor and made a couple of trips to the
doctor's office. The half breed was sent
to notify the police. The officer arrested
Leighton on Third Avenue as he was
returning from the doctor's office.
The doctor saw no knife but states that
the  wound  was  made  with  a  knife.
Berlin, May 28.���(Special)���Emperor
William of Germany is suffering from a
malignant abscess on his right hand.
An operation will be necessary as it
is feared blood poisoning might set in. '*"tw-
THE    PRINCE   RUPERT    OPTIMIST
AGAINST HIGH FINANCE.
Shaughnessy   Denies   Report   Of   A
Ten Per Cent Dividend.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, in an interview with the Montreal correspondent
of the Toronto Globe gave emphatic
denial to the story that the Canadian
Pacific railway company was to pay a
ten per cent dividend. "No, we are not j
in for such high finance," said Sir,
Thomas, when the subject was broached
to him. "We are earning good money
but that is due to the good
times we are having. We will just continue to go along as we have been doing.
When told the story that English
shareholders were determined on a 10
per cent, dividend and to obtain this
end were urging upon the directors the
necessity of having a holding company
to take over all the lands of the C. P. R.,
Sir Thomas laughed and said it was news
to him.
The story is to the effect that a holding company shall take over all C. P. R.
lands, divide stock into common and
preferred, which will be given to the
shareholders and will pay five per cent
dividend and the common stock goes
into the treasury of the C. P. R. It is,
also said that Sir Thomas was opposed
to the scheme and wanted to put all
surpluses into development and improvements. This arrangement was to
be made to get around the law which
prevents Canadian railroads paying ten
percent without filing its tariffs with the
government. To the whole story Sir
Thomas gave a most emphatic denial,
reiterating his statement that it was too
much like high finance for the C. P. R.
to touch. When asked if there was a
possibility of an increase in the dividends
as a result of increase in revenue in
the land sale, Sir. Thomas said "Of
that I cannot say. Such things as increases in dividends are dealt with as
need arises but for the present it has
not been considered"

The Companies Act.
It is learned from Attorney-General
Bowser that the consolidated and revised
Companies Act of this province to which
the legislature at its last session devoted
considerable time and attention, will
come into force as prescribed by the
legislation itself, on July 1st next. A
movement has recently been inaugurated
by certain boards of trade throughout
the country to induce the chief law officer of the Crown to postpone the coming
into effect of this act until a later date,
but, as Hon. Mr. Bowser points out,
it does not rest within the province of
either the Attorney General or the
government thus to alter the initiation
of statury legislation.

Notary Public
Silver Bow Mines Co.,
Another mining company is being
formed to develop a group of claims
in the Portland Canal district, the
Silver Bow Mines company, Ltd., with
offices in Vancouver. Mr. W. Noble,
president of the company, who is now
in Victoria, said yesterday that the
company was formed to take over five
claims, the Silver Bow No. 1, 2, 3,
and 4 and Washington, situated on
Glacier creek. These claims were
originally located by Mr. Stark for
Mr. Rogers in 1902, and $7,000 has
been spent in development work and
application is being made for a Crown
grant.
On the claims there . is one lead
of copper and gold ore "thirty feet
wide, which has been traced ~^-for
3,000 feet, and there is a tunnel on
this of 100 feet. Ore taken from this
dump gave from $15 to $20 as an average from fifteen assays. There is
a second ledge seen for 1,500 feet.,
from three to eight feet wide, which
carries good values in silver and lead
ana yet another ledge of solid galena
ore discovered recently, upon which
no   work   has   been   done.
The company has been formed with
a capital of $1,000,000 in 25 cent
shares. The vendors have taken about
two-thirds of their price in stock.
Spme of the remaining shares are to
be offered at 15 cents. James Cocker-
ill of Victoria, has been appointed to
take charge of the mine.
For New University,
Victoria, May 28���(Special)���The University commision will visit all the
island points for a site for the new univ-
versity before considering the proposed
sites on the mainland, and it is probable
that an island site will be selected.

railway. Tender will close on June 10
at Stewart, where plans and specifications are on file. Mr. W. H. Grant,

Coming With Sir Wilfred.
The Ottawa Free Press remarks that
Sir Wilfred Laurier has made choice of
two capital traveling companions on
his tour of the west in Hon. G. P. Graham and Mr. F. F. Pardee. Hon. Mr,
Fielding will be unable to come west
owing to the necessity of his going
to England to resume his duties on the
West India commission; but his turn
for a visit west may come next year.

"And what are we to understand by
the Biblical expression 'the four corners
���f the earth?' " asks the instructor in
theology.
"Rockfeller's corner in oil, Have-
meyer's corner in sugar, Carnegie's
corner in steel, and Patten's corner in
wheat,"  answers the new student.
''Tommy," said the boss, "you quit
smoking two or three months ago, did'nt
you?"
"Yes, sir"  answered the office  boy.
"How much have you gained in
weight?"
"Well, sir," he said, "countin' it in
nickels I reckon I've gained about four
pounds."

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
���"PHE 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 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 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.

STEWART DECKER KILLED.
Thrown From a Bicycle While Riding Skagway Wharf.
Alfred Decker, steward on the steamer
Ena, met with a violent death there on
Friday evening week. He was riding a
bicycle on the approach to Moore's
wharf, Skagway when a loose plank
caused the bicycle to swerve, throwing
the rider to the tide-flats below, a distance of some fifteen feet. He fell in such
a way that his neck was broken by the
impact  and  death  was  instantaneous.
Mr. Decker was well known and
very popular among the C. P. R. employees. He had been in the employ
of the company for some time, first
as assistant steward on the Princess
May and for more than a year as
chief   steward   on   the   Princess   Ena.
COBALT EXPERTS COMING.
The market attention which Stewart
and the important mining field behind it,
which gives assurance of permanency and
prosperity of the new city, are attracting throughout Canada, is attested says the Vancouver Province in
letters from Toronto telling of arrangements now under way for the early
coming of an excursion party of 100
mining men of Cobalt and Toronto,
for each and all of whom Stewart is
the alluring objective point.
Upwards of a dozen of these prospective visitors at present have confidential representatives confirming the
glowing reports that have been made
as to the Portland Canal camp by
every mining expert who has thus far
given it his attention; and Mr. W. J.
Trethewey, M. E., the Cobalt millionaire, at one time a resident of this
city, and now on the coast for the express purpose of seeing the new field
for himself, is understood to have behind him an aggregate of $10,000,-
000 of Ontario capital, a considerable
part of which is seeking investment
in British Columbia's newest and in
many ways, most promising mining
district.
Owned and operated by the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway on
the American and European plan.
Excellently furnished, with
steam heat, electric light, and all
modern conveniences, being absolutely first-class in every respect.
The appointments and service
are equal to any hotel on the
coast.
Rates: $1 to $3.50 per day.

Strongest Impression of All.
"To me the strongest impression of
all was that of the exquisite Queen
Mother's sweet womanliness, her gentle grace, her picture framed for an
instant in carriage window and never
to be forgotten.
"There are high lights which stand
clear in my mind after a broad river
of scarlet and gold has flowed at
full tide between its banks of pale
faces, and the King has passed to his
peace. Now it is over, Statesmen
and warriors, leaders and princes
with the glint of gold and the flash
of steel, the greatest muster upon,
all are gone and remain but in the
memory. The people surge forth
from their close ranks and the hushed hum of London rises once more.
For a few hours a great complex
machine has stood at rest. For as
many weeks it has been running
heavily and slowly in all its countless
gears. Each turns again to his own
proper business. The great dead has
been honored and the world is now
for the living. All its manifold activities will roar into action and the
strife of parties will break forth. It
is good and should be so, for only
through battle can life's high issues
be  attained."

gineer of Berlin, Ontario. And Social  Interests.
The Princess May arrived this morning with a number of excursionists for
Stewart. The number might have been
larger but that the sale of Srewart town
lot; is advertised for Monday and Tuesday and many interested who might
have taken the trip were afraid to do so
for fear of missing the sale. Among the
notable excursionists was Captain John
Irving, in whose company no one ever
died of thirst; Mr. ar.d Mrs. McGowan
engineering superintendent of the G.T.P.
Harry Howson, the well-known mining
operator of the Skeena: R. Jamieson,
brother of the famous engineer who led
Johannesburg rebellion: L.D.Ryus, who
recently surveyed the new townsite of
Portland City opposite Stewart, and Mr.
Houston,  a Montana mining operator.
There were seventy-eight passengers
in all, and among those who landed at
Prince Rupert were: W. J. Scott. S. J.

MINERS   AT  ELLIS ARM.
Camp   is   Very    Active    and    Men
From Stewart   are Going  In.
Word has reached the city from some
of the local parties who left two or
three week? ago to prospect and to develop previously located claims in the
Ellis Arm district. Everyone up there
is very optimistic and that country
promises to rival Ste%vart. Not only
did many local men go prospecting, but
a lar?e number of those who went to
Stewart and who have been working in
that locality, are hitting the trails over
mountains for the new and more promising territory.
John McGrath is now doing assessment work on his claims which were
recently bonded for a good figure. He
has two of the most promising propositions in the district.
Jones and Strangland, two well
known men, have discovered and are
opening up some promising property.
There are now over 40 men at Ellis
Arm and their number is being added
to even- day.
Logan and a party of prospecters
have gone in on the Naas looking for
mineral. It is reported that they had
no trouble with the Indians and that
the hostility of the natives is not nearly
so bad as one would be lead  to believe.

\V. M. Davis, at present city engineer
of Berlin. On:., was appointed the permanent engineer for Prince Rupert
at a salary of Jo.000 per year. This
action was taken by the council at its
meeting las: nigh: upon the recommendation of the Streets committee. Mr.
Davis is one of the best municipal engineers ir. the Dominion and that is why
he was selected.
FROM THE ISLANDS.
Captain   Locke,   of   the  Amur.   Had
Heavy Weather  Crossing Straits.
The Amur arrived on Monday trom
Queen Char!o::e Islands, and her eap-
tain says he exr.-erienced very heavy
weather crossing the Hecate straits l^st
but that no damage was done except :ha:
one or two res:'.ess passengers were tossed out of their berths.
Ike Thompson, the mining operator.
was a passenger on the Amur on his way
to Vancouver, in connection with a deal
of some Portland Canal Mining property.
The islands have been having beautiful weather and there is everywhere a
great deal of business activity. The
Moresby Island sawmill is running
double shift, and has a pile of lumber on
the wharf waiting to be shipped by the
Petriana to the Westholme Lumber
company at Prince Rupert.
Mining interests are looking well. The
diamond drill at the Ikeda Bay mines
is still running an d continues to show
encouraging results. Among the Amur's
passengers, on her way to Vancouver,
was W. H. Parsons, who has been
visiting his mining property on Collision
Bay to make arrangements for resuming
active operations.
The Government Wireless Telegraph
was formally opened to the public vest-
day when The Optimist sent the following  message  to  the  Vancouver  press.
"The citizens of Prince Rupert and
the Optimist send greetings over the
first wireless from this port."
The new station or. Digby Island has
been completed for some time, but the
cable to the Government wire office here
just complete. The work since C. P.
Edwards was called East has been in
charge of C. M. Mclntyre who will
remain here j. few :..;���'- yet. The regular
operator will be D. A. Cameron, who
iives at th- nation. He will be given an
assistant _r. i the station will then be
open from T a.m. to 12 p.m.
Comrr.-: .-. message may be sent by
wireless at the same rate as by wire. In
case of a :er. word message 25c goes to
the wire system for the cable dispatch
and $1.00 to the wireless system. The
advantage of the wireless will be an
auxiliary when the wires are down.
Prior to this the following messages
were exchanged between Mayor Stork
and Mayor Moriey of Victoria
Mayor of Victoria���"Prince Rupert
extends congratulations to sister cities
in the south upon the completion of
the wireless communication. May it
prove another link in the chxin of commercial   and   social   interests."
FRED STORK, Mayor.
Prompt Answer.
"Fred Stork. Mayor of Prince Rupert���
Victoria heartily reciprocates your congratulations and unites with coast cities
in felicitations upon the wonderful
achievement of successfully employing the ether to take the place of wire
in the transition of telegraphic messages."

FIRST CO NCRETE BLOCK.
R. C. Hyde Will Award The Contract
In  Two  Weeks.
Famous Treadwell Mine.
The Mining and Scientific Press gives
the following figures from Treadwell:
The report of Alaska Treadwell Gold
Mining company for March states that
the 240 mill ran 25 days, 16 hours and
crashed 27,104 tons of ore. Of this 5oo
tons of concentrates, valued at $37,524.
was saved, and $59,414 in free gold. The
operating expenses amounted to $64,74!
and construction $8,056, The yield per
ton of ore milled amounted to $3,
of ore milled amounted to $3.77. At
Alaska Mexican mine the report for the
same period gives the mill run 21 days
2 hours, ore crushed, 12,377 tons,
concentrates saved, 253 tons, valued at
at $17,764, base bullion, $1,940 and free
gold $22,512. The operating expenses
amounted to $26,482 and the yield per
ton of ore milled. $3.40.
R. C. Hyde of Los Angeles is in the
city in connection with his local properties and the new building he will shortly
have started. Mr. Hyde expects to let
the contract for the construction of a
concrete block of stores at the corner of
Third Avenue and Seventh Street in
about two weeks. He is receiving bids
from the contractors now and in a few
days he will make a trip to Spokane and
back and will then award the contract.
The prospects are that this building will
be the first of the permanent buildings
to be erected here. Once this class of
structure is started others will follow-
rapidly. Mr. Hyde has had considerable
experience in building and has some
valuable properties in other cities. This
block will at present be only one storey
but the foundation and walls will be heavy enough to carry a three storey building for which the plans have been made.
The second and third floors will be added
as required.
Wireless for Stewart.
Instructions have beer, issued by
C. P. Edwards, superintendent of wireless for the Dominion of Canada, to make
some tests on Portland Canal in neighborhood of Stewart with the object of
finding out if it would be possible to
operate a wireless station at that point.
These tests will be carried out at once
and if successful a station will be at once
erected in order to put the new mining
communitty in touch with the rest of
the world. At present there is no telegraph
communication. Portland Canal is
badly land-locked and some doubt is
expressed as to the feasibility of tee
scheme.
A series of stations up the canal for
he purpose of relaying messages has
been suggested but this would be very
expensive and until the experiments
have been made nothing can be decided.
Should it be found impossible to bring
the place into wireless communication
with the rest of the coast, it is understood that the telegraph wire to Dawson
will be tapped and a branch run into
Stewart.
Grand Trunks-New Offices.
Vancouver, May 27,���[Special;���The
Grand Trunk Pacific has leased the whole
block now occupied by the General
Electric company, south of the old
post office. This will be the Company's
office for the western division.

Work has been started on the foundation for Bird's new hotel at the corner

$1500 for Hazelton.
The Methodist Church Mission Board
decided at its meeting in Toronto recently to vote $1500 to the erection of a
wing to the hospital of the Indian Mission
at Hazelton. This was made necessary'
by the opening up of the G. T.P. and the
development of the mines in the district.
Those Sugar Frauds.
New York, May 27th���[Special]���
In the continuation of the trial of Charles
Heike, charged with defrauding the
government in the use of fraudulent
sugar weights at this port, Mr. Spitzer,
former assistant secretary of the treasurer, said this morning that the confession of Heike would implicate others,
including Henry Havemeyer who died
some months ago.
Blake Wilson, western manager for
P. Burns & Co., to-day closed a deal
which has been in progress for some time,
with the firm of L. Morrow & Co. for the
purchase of their entire northern business. This includes the Prince Rupert
and the Stewart markets. P. Burns & Co.
are by far the largest meat dealers in
western Canada and their coming in here
shows the confidence the firm has in
Prince Rupert.
They will immediately erect one of the
largest cold storage plants on the coast.
It will be located on the waterfront and
with trackage.
L. Morrow & Co. have been in business
in this country for eleven years. Their
Prince Rupert market on the water front
was the first store in this city. The
building was later used as the first home
of the Optimist and now as the G. T. P.
power house. The firm has been one of
the most successful in the city and in
disposing of the market business Mr.
Morrow will have more time to devote to
his many other interests in and around
Prince Rupert.
FIRST WHITE WOMAN
At Fort George Solves Knotty Point
Between Two Claimants.
The first-white-woman-question in
Fort George is settled and is now a matter
of history'- There may be difference of
opinion in respect to the discovery of the
North Pole and also to the merits and
demerits of townsites, but regarding the
first woman in Fort George there is no
doubt. We have three. They all came
on the SS. Quesnel last Sunday, and from
appearances there was an evident desire
on the part of the three to land first. But
Mrs. M. V. Halm held the gang plank,
and as she had five handsome and bright
children en train, she was accorded the
position she deserved and walked off the
boat amid a bombardment of cameras
and well-wishers' salutations. The royal
photographer was there and The Tribune
will at some future time reproduce the
group.
The townsite company had in vew the
giving of a lot to the first white woman
landing' and 'residing' in Fort George.
But the first woman to land, Mrs. Halm,
in company with her husband, went
direct to their pre-emption in the
Nechaco valley.
This was believed to have disqualified
her from receiving a lot, and making
Mrs. G. Howser the benefiary, she being
the seconf woman to walk off the boat,
and who has taken up her residence here.
Things appeared complicated for a time;
but eventually, through the urbanity and
diplomatic suavity of the townsite representative here, W. F. Cooke, the matter
has been adjusted satisfactorily to both
claimants, and a lot apiece has been
granted them. There ends possibly one
of the most delicate questions in the
annals of Fort George. The lots presented are:
To Mrs. M. V.Halm���lot 16, block 9,
S. D. 933.
To Mrs. G. Howser���lot 17, block 9,
S. D. 933.
They   may   be   neighbors   in   time.

C. B. WARK
The new queen is an English princess
born and bred���British by training and
habit. No British woman has become
the mother of the heirs of the throne
since the date, a little more than 200
years ago, when the Lady Anne Hyde
daughter of the lord chancellor of the
day, was wedded by the prince who
who was then heir apparent to the throne,
afterwards King James 11, and became the mother of two queens, Mary
11, and Anne.
Her royal Majesty Queen Victoria
Mary Augusta Louisa Olga Pauline
Claudine Agnes, is a great-granddaughter of King George 111. Her husband
is a generation lower down, for he is
a great-great-grandson of the same
king, but this is easily accounted for
by the fact that the mother of the
duchess was 14 years younger than the
late Queen Victoria, and, moreover, was
not married till she was 33 years of
age. King George 111 had fourteen
children, but of these there are singularly few descendants in the second generation.
The Queen's grandfather, Prince
Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, was one
of those who married to oblige the
nation when he had reached the age of
42, and he had three children���the Duke
of Cambridge, who became.commander
in chief of the army; Princess Augusta,
who wed the Grand Duke of Mecklen-
burg-Strelitz; and Princess Mary
who married the Duke of Teck and became the mother of the present queen
as well as of three sons.
The good humor, gayety, and affability of Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess
of Teck, caused the new queen to inherit popularity with the nation. The
queen was born in Kensington palace
at one minute before midnight May
26, 1867, in a room adjacent to that
in which Queen Victoria first saw the
light of day forty-eight years earlier.
From the first her name was shortened into May, she having been born
in that month, and also because the
number of Victorias in the younger
generation of princesses was embarrassing.
Between her mother and the future
queen of England there existed the
fondest devotion. In writing of the
baby to a friend in March, 1868, the
Duchess of Teck said;
"She  is really  as sweet  and  engag-
trothed to his cousin May, public satisfaction   was   great.
Less than a month after the betrothal the duke of Clarence was taken
ill with influenza and died in a week.
It was more than a year later that it
became known that the Princess May
would be the bride of the heir to the
throne, after all, and on July 6, 1893,
the marriage took place in the chapel
royal, St. James. The bridal dress was
of satin, woven in Spitalfields, as one
of the charitable efforts in which the
bride had taken great interest was
the revival of English silk weaving
and the bringing of home manufactured
silks into general use in Britain. The
tweeds in the trousseau all came from
Scotland, the flannels from Wales, and
the lace from  Ireland.

her mamma  is  her  best  playfellow."
The little princess grew up at White
Lodge, Richmond, the property of
Queen Victoria. She was taught several
languages from her infancy upwards,
having a German governess and a
French maid; and when she was only
9 years of age her mother wrote of
her:
"May is quick and clever, understands German and is musical."
Music is one of the queen's greatest
accomplishments, having a beautiful
soprano voice and singing with great
expression. She was a pupil of Sig.
Tosti.
The intimacy between the queen and
her husband began at an early age and
there was much visiting between the
two families. Though King George and
the queen were both lively children,
it is said the gentle and more melancholy elder son of the then Prince
of Wales, the late Duke Clarence, was
more attractive to the little princess
at that time.
Her charitable work won general re-
cognization, so when in 1893 it was announced that the then heir to the
throne, the Duke of Clarence, was be-
g'

ENGINEERjSAPPOINTED
TO RECEIVE A SALARY OF FIVE
THOUSAND   DOLLARS
William Davis, the Gentleman Selected for This Important Position is at Present City Engineer of Berlin, Ontario.
W. M. Davis, at present city engineer
of Berlin, Ont., was appointed the permanent engineer for Prince Rupert
at a salary of $5,000 per year. This
action was taken by the council at its
meeting last night upon the recommendation of the Streets committee. Mr.
Davis is one of the best municipal engineers in the Dominion and that is why
he was selected.
The Princess May arrived this morning with a number of excursionists for
Stewart. The number might have been
larger but that the sale of Srewart town
lots is advertised for Monday and Tuesday and many interested who might
have taken the trip were afraid to do so
for fear of missing the sale. Among the
notable excursionists was Captain John
Irving, in whose company no one ever
died of thirst; Mr. and Mrs. McGowan
engineering superintendent of the G.T.P.
Harry Howson, the well-known mining
operator of the Skeena; R. Jamieson,

MINERS   AT ELLIS ARM.
Camp   is   Very    Active    and    Men
From Stewart  are Going In.
Word has reached the city from some
of the local parties who left two or
three weeks ago to prospect and to develop previously located claims in the
Ellis Arm district. Everyone up there
is very optimistic and that country
promises to rival Stewart. Not only
did many local men go prospecting, but
a large number of those who went to
Stewart and who have been working in
that locality, are hitting the trails over
mountains for the new and more promising territory.
John McGrath is now doing assessment work on his claims which were
recently bonded for a good figure. He
has two of the most promising propositions in the district.
Jones and Strangland, two well
known men, have discovered and are
opening up some  promising  property.
There are now over 40 men at Ellis
Arm and their number is being added
to every day.
Logan and a party of prospecters
have gone in on the Naas looking for
mineral. It is reported that they had
no trouble with the Indians and that
the hostility of the natives is not nearly
so bad as one would be lead  to believe.
one or two restless passengers were tossed out of their berths.
Ike Thompson, the mining operator,
was a passenger on the Amur on his way
to Vancouver, in connection with a deal
of some Portland Canal Mining property.
The islands have been having beautiful weather and there is everywhere a
great deal of business activity. The
Moresby Island sawmill is running
double shift, and has a pile of lumber on
the wharf waiting to be shipped by the
Petriana to the Westholme Lumber
company at Prince Rupert.
Mining interests are looking well. The
diamond drill at the Ikeda Bay mines
is still running and continues to show
encouraging results. Among the Amur's
passengers, on her way to Vancouver,
was W. H. Parsons, who has been
visiting his mining property on Collision
Bay to make arrangements for resuming
active operations.

Famous Treadwell Mine.
The Mining and Scientific Press gives
the following figures from Treadwell:
The report of Alaska Treadwell Gold
Mining company for March states that
the 240 mill ran 26 days, 16 hours and
crushed 27,104 tons of ore. Of this 5oo
tons of concentrates, valued at $37,524,
was saved, and $59,414 in free gold. The
operating expenses amounted to $64,781
and construction $8,056. The yield per
ton of ore milled amounted to $3,
of ore milled amounted to $3.77. At
Alaska Mexican mine the report for the
same period gives the mill run 21 days
2 hours, ore crushed, 12,377 tons,
concentrates saved, 253 tons, valued at
at $17,784, base bullion, $1,940 and free
gold $22,512. The operating expenses. .
amounted to $26,482 and the yield per
ton of ore milled, $3.40.
New Hotel Started.
Work has been started on the foundation for Bird's new hotel at the corner
of Fraser and Sixth Streets.
R. C. Hyde of Los Angeles is in the
city in connection with his local properties and the new building he will shortly
have started. Mr. Hyde expects to let
the contract for the construction of a
concrete block of stores at the corner of
Third Avenue and Seventh Street in
about two weeks. He is receiving bids
from the contractors now and in a few
days he will make a trip to Spokane and
back and will then award the contract.
The prospects are that this building will
be the first of the permanent buildings
to be erected here. Once this class of
structure is started others will follow
rapidly. Mr. Hyde has had considerable
experience in building and has some
valuable properties in other cities. This
block will at present be only one storey
but the foundation and walls will be heavy enough to carry a three storey building for which the plans have been made.
The second and third floors will be added
as required.
Grand Trunk's New Offices.
Vancouver, May 27,���[Special]���The
Grand Trunk Pacific has leased the whole
block now occupied by the General
Electric company, south of the old
post office. This will be the Company's
office for the western division.
The Government Wireless Telegraph
was formally opened to the public yest-
day wi en The Optimist sent the following  message to  the  Vancouver  press.
"The citizens of Prince Rupert and
the Optimist send greetings over the
first wireless from this port."
The new station on Digby Island has
been completed for some time, but the
cable to the Government wire office here
just complete. The work since C. P.
Edwards was called East has been in
charge of C. M. Mclntyre who will
remain here a few days yet. The regular
operator will be D. A. Cameron, who
lives at the station. He will be given an
assistant and the station will then be
open from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Commercial message may be sent by
wireless at the same rate as by wire. In
case of a ten word message 25c goes to
the wire system for the cable dispatch
and $1.00 to the wireless system. The
advantage of the wireless will be an
auxiliary when the wires are down.
Prior to this the following messages
were exchanged between Mayor Stork
and Mayor Morley of Victoria
Mayor of Victoria���"Prince Rupert
extends congratulations to sister cities
in the south upon the completion of
the wireless communication. May it
prove another link in the chain of commercial   and  social   interests."
FRED STORK, Mayor.
Prompt Answer.
"Fred Stork, Mayor of Prince Rupert���
Victoria heartily reciprocates your congratulations and unites with coast cities
in felicitations upon the wonderful
achievement of successfully employing the ether to take the place of wire
in the transition of telegraphic messages."
J. J. MORLEY,
Mayor.
Wireless for Stewart.
Instructions have been issued by
C. P. Edwards, superintendent of wireless for the Dominion of Canada, to make
some tests on Portland Canal in neighborhood of Stewart with the object of
finding out if it would be possible to
operate a wireless station at that point.
These tests will be carried out at once
and if successful a station will be at once
erected in order to put the new mining
communitty in touch with the rest of
the world. At present there is no telegraph
communication. Portland Canal is
badly land-locked and some doubt is
expressed as to the feasibility of tee
scheme.
A series of stations up the canal for
he purpose of relaying messages has
been suggested but this would be very
expensive and until the experiments
have been made nothing can be decided.
Should it be found impossible to bring
the place into wireless communication
with the rest of the coast, it is understood that the telegraph wire to Dawson
will be tapped and a branch run into
Stewart.
Blake Wilson, western manager for
P. Burns & Co., to-day closed a deal
which has been in progress for some time,
with the firm of L. Morrow & Co. for the
purchase of their entire northern business. This includes the Prince Rupert
and the Stewart markets. P. Burns & Co.
are by far the largest meat dealers in
western Canada and their coming in here
shows the confidence the firm has in
Prince Rupert.
They will immediately erect one of the
largest cold storage plants on the coast.
It will be located on the waterfront and
with trackage.
L. Morrow & Co. have been in business
in this country for eleven years. Their
Prince Rupert market on the water front
was the first store in this city. The
building was later used as the first home
of the Optimist and now as the G. T. P.
power house. The firm has been one of
the most successful in the city and in
disposing of the market business Mr.
Morrow will have more time to devote to
his many other interests in and around
Prince Rupert.

$1500 for Hazelton.
The Methodist Church Mission Board
decided at its meeting in Toronto recently to vote $1500 to the erection of a

at Hazelton. This was made necessary
by the opening up of the G. T.P. and the
development of the mines in the district.
Those Sugar Frauds.
New York, May 27th���[Special]���
In the continuation of the trial of Charles
Heike, charged with defrauding the
government in the use of fraudulent
sugar weights at this port, Mr. Spitzer,
former assistant secretary of the treasurer, said this morning that the confession of Heike would implicate others,
including Henry Havemeyer who died
some months ago.
The first-white-woman-question in
Fort George is settled and is now a matter
of history. There may be difference of
opinion in respect to the discovery of the
North Pole and also to the merits and
demerits of townsites, but regarding the
first woman in Fort George there is no
doubt. We have three. They all came
on the SS. Quesnel last Sunday, and from
appearances there was an evident desire
on the part of the three to land first. But
Mrs. M. V. Halm held the gang plank,
and as she had five handsome and bright
children en train, she was accorded the
position she deserved and walked off the
boat amid a bombardment of cameras
and well-wishers' salutations. The royal
photographer was there and The Tribune
will at some future time reproduce the
group.
The townsite company had in vew the
giving of a lot to the first white woman
'landing' and 'residing' in Fort George.
But the first woman to land, Mrs. Halm,
in company with her husband, went
direct to their pre-emption in the
Nechaco valley.
This was believed to have disqualified
her from receiving a lot, and making
Mrs. G. Howser the benefiary, she being
the seconf woman to walk off the boat,
and who has taken up her residence here.
Things appeared complicated for a time;
hut eventually, through the urbanity and
diplomatic suavity of the townsite representative here, W. F. Cooke, the matter
has been adjusted satisfactorily to both
claimants, and a lot apiece has been
granted them. There ends possibly one
if the most delicate questions in the
annals of Fort George. The lots presented are:
To Mrs. M. V.Halm-lot 16, block 9,
S. D. 933.
To Mrs. G. Howser���lot 17, block 9,
S. D. 933.
They   may   be   neighbors   in   time.

NEW QUEEN ENGLISH.
The new queen is an English princess
born and bred���British by training and
habit. No British woman has become
the mother of the heirs of the throne
since the date, a little more than 200
years ago, when the Lady Anne Hyde
daughter of the lord chancellor of the
day, was wedded by the prince who
who was then heir apparent to the throne,
afterwards King James 11, and became the mother of two queens, Mary
11, and Anne.
Her royal Majesty Queen Victoria
Mary Augusta Louisa Olga Pauline
Claudine Agnes, is a great-granddaughter of King George 111. Her husband
is a generation lower down, for he is
a great-great-grandson of the same
king, but this is easily accounted for
by the fact that the mother of the
duchess was 14 years younger than the
late Queen Victoria, and, moreover, was
not married till she was 33 years of
age. King George 111 had fourteen
children, but of these there are singularly few descendants in the second generation.
The Queen's grandfather, Prince
Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, was one
of those who married to oblige the
nation when he had reached the age of
42, and he had three children���the Duke
of Cambridge, who became. commander
in chief of the army, Princess Augusta,
who wed the Grand Duke of Mecklen-
burg-Strelitz; and Princess Mary
who married the Duke of Teck and became the mother of the present queen
as well as of three sons.
The good humor, gayety, and affability of Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess
of Teck, caused the new queen to inherit popularity with the nation. The
queen was born in Kensington palace
at one minute before midnight May
26, 1867, in a room adjacent to that
in which Queen Victoria first saw the
light of day forty-eight years earlier.
From the first her name was shortened into May, she having been born
in that month, and also because the
number of Victorias in the younger
generation of princesses was embarrassing.
Between her mother and the future
queen of England there existed the
fondest devotion. In writing of the
baby to a friend in March, 1868, the
Duchess of Teck said:
"She is really as sweet and engaging a child as you can wish to see, full
of life and fun and playful as a kitten;
with the deepest blue eyes imaginable, quantities of fair hair, a pink and
white complexion, and a most perfect
figure. In a word, she is a model of a
baby. You must amicably overlook
her mother's fond conceit in her own
child, though I must say that May
wins all hearts by her bright face and
smile and endearing ways. Her papa
is in a quiet way thoroughly devoted
to her, and she adores him, though
her mamma  is  her  best  playfellow."
The little princess grew up at White-
Lodge, Richmond, the property of
Queen Victoria. She was taught several
languages irom her infancy upwards,
haviug a German governess and a
French maid; and when she was only
9 years of age her mother wrote of
her:
"May is quick and clever, understands German and is musical."
Music is one of the queen's greatest
accomplishments, having a beautiful
soprano voice and singing with great
expression. She was a pupil of Sig.
Tosti.
The intimacy between the queen and
her husband began at an early age and
there was much visiting between the
two families. Though King George and
the queen were both lively children,
it is said the gentle and more melancholy elder son of the then Prince
of Wales, the late Duke Clarence, was
more attractive to the little princess
at that time.
Her charitable work won general re-
cognization, so when in 1893 it was announced that the then heir to the
throne, the Duke of Clarence, was be
trothed to his cousin May, public satisfaction   was   great.
Less than a month after the betrothal the duke of Clarence was taken
ill with influenza and died in a week.
It was more than a year later that it
became known that the Princess May
would be the bride of the heir to the
throne, after all, and on July 6, 1893,
the marriage took place in the chapel
royal, St. James. The bridal dress was
of satin, woven in Spitalfields, as one
of the charitable efforts in which the
bride had taken great interest was
the revival of English silk weaving
and the bringing of home manufactured
silks into general use in Britain. The
tweeds in the trousseau all came from
Scotland, the flannels from Wales, and
the lace from Ireland.

Launch Near Simpson.
Fourteen days at sea in a broken down

cold, thirst, lack of clothers, and all
but lost, without the slightest assistance
from any direction, A. W. Agnew and
Guy Tooker, were picked up by W. A.
Hamilton's launch just a quarter of a
mile outside Simpson yesterday morning
about 4 o'clock.
Not only history, but romance is being
j made daily in northern British Columbia.
The trip made by these two young men
was so full of hardship that it is difficult
to conceive of anyone coming through
I safely.   It was only their knowledge of
the north Pacific Coast,   of engineering
and their extreme courage and ability
to adopt themselves to all circumstances
bore them to safety.  The story they
I tell of their 14 day voyage is thrilling
I to a degree, and not only will the partici-
I pants   of it remember it to their last
days, hut so will their host of friends
who have spent anxious day and sleep-
I less nights in anxiety.
Arrived   Home.
A. W. Agnew, a well known engineer
I and Guy Tooker, his assistant, arrived
in Prince Rupert Harbor on the morning
of May 24th about 10 o'clock.     They

Hamilton's yacht which rescued them
from the craft and were greeted here by
theii friends. They were taken in charge
by R. L. McIntosh who took them to
his home on Third avenue and he and

I Agnew and Tooker would not have
recognized them.s they walked up Cent re
Street. They were gaunt and thin,
careworn and aged, two week's growth
on their beards and their clothes looking
anything but fresh from my valets.
They were weak and hungry and thirsty
and walked with a slow step and bent
shoulders and as their friends stopped
to extend greetings it was plain to see
they were suffering intensely from their

of steamers, without food and without
a tool with which to make a raft. We
managed to save about six pounds of
flour and four pounds of oat meal, and
a couple of pieces of candle. These
latter we used to grease the frying
pan with and we made pancakes by
mixing the flour and meal with salt
water. We also had a couple of meals
of clams but they were scarce and we
could not catch a fish of any kind. We
had to come down to eating mussels���
and that's pretty tough. We found
three potatoes on shore and once half a
radish floated up to us. They were
devoured eagerly and without question.
Built a  Raft.
Realizing that life on the Cape
would be short the heroes took the bull
by the horns and decided to fight fate
to the last ditch.
"We started gathering driftwood,"
continued Mr. Agnew, "to make a raft.
We had no tools whatever except one
small cook knife. We gathered in the
logs and we had to burn them in two or
three pieces to get them the right
length. Then we used stones to drive
the old spikes out and later to drive
them in to fasten the logs together.
In due time we fashioned a raft that
would make you laugh. It was our only
chance. We made paddles out of drift
wood and a sail out of the cover of the
bed tick.
"On Sunday, May 15th, we got on
our 'life preserver' and took little Pat,
the dog with us. Poor little fellow, he
had a hard time, but he pulled through.
We started for Port Simpson, or for the
first boat we could sight. We had no
idea how far we were away. The first
day we made but little headway, but
kept on day after day and night after
night, only stopping to gather clams or
mussels and for a rest. It was a hopeless task, but we were not hopeless and
always expected to reach home.
Refused to Help Them.
' 'For nine long days and nine long
nights we paddled and apparently made
no headway, but finally on Tuesday we
sighted the Petriana about three o'clock
in the morning bound for Port Simpson.
We hailed her and the lookout answered
our signals. He asked us what we
wanted and we replied that we were in
distress on a raft and wanted to be
taken off. The lookout's reply we did
not catch, but he kept his ship headed
for Simpson and left us to the mercy of
the tide and the waves. To us that
was one of the hardest knocks of the
whole trip. We cannot imagine what
kind of an excuse the fellow will  offer.
"A half hour later, about a quarter
of a mile from Port Simpson, we
sighted Mr. Hamilton's launch coming
towards us. Our hearts leaped with
joy. We were saved! We got into
the launch and one of the first things
was bread and butter. I tell you I
never tasted anything so good in my
life before. We wired from Port Simpson of our safe arrival and we reached
here about ten o'clock yesterday morning."
NEW COUNCIL AT WORK
WATER DROPPED A FOOT.
Melting   Snow,   Fallen   Trees   and
Drift Wood Cause of Rise.
From the steamer bulletin it will be
seen that the water in the canyon has
fallen a foot during the past 24 hours.
It is still four feet eight inches above
zero and it is impossible for the steamers
to go either up or down. They can not
even navigate the little canyon at three
feet above zero. Some of the boats will
chance a passage, but not at the present
height. The cause of the present sudden
rising is the snow melting on the mountains and the freshet carrying the fallen
trees and drift wood down to the canyon
where it forms a dam and backs the water
up. It is not expected that the high
water will last more than a day or two.
Alberta   Crop  Prospects.
Calgary, May 27���[Special]���reports

FIRST   MEETING   HELD   IN   THE
COURT   HOUSE.
Big Batch Of Communications Read
By Acting Clerk Alderman Smith
Temporary Quarters Suggested For
Use As City Hall.
Prince Rupert's city council is mow
well under way. The mayor and aldermen met on Monday night for a couple
of hours or more and got through a lot
of work. The organization was commenced by the appointment of the standing committees and already several
matters have been referred to them.
Another meeting will be held by them
this evening at 8 o'clock.
Those present were Mayor Stork,
in the chair, Aid. Smith, Barrow, Mclntyre, Mobley, Hilditch, Pattullo.
The mayor called the meeting to
order and stated that he had a copy of
the constitution of the Vancouver municipality and suggested that as their
method of procedure.
The secretary read the munutes of
the noon meeting and they were adopted
Communications.
Secretary Aid. Smith read the following communications:���
From the Haliday Machinery Co., of
Seattle, asking for information and
specifications for the proposed new power
house.
From Wm. C. Currie, applying for
position of assessor.
From Alex. Potter, of new York,
asking to be allowed to prepare plans
for the proposed water works system.
From the Kerr Engine Co., of Walker-
ville, Ont., asking to be allowed to give
figures on hydrants, pipes, valves, etc.,
in connection with the water works
system.
From J. Richards, of Brandon, Man.,
enquiring as to the prospects of a moving
picture show here.
From 0. J. Trouts of Albany, Ore.,
asking for information of the town and
what opening there would be for a planing mill.
From W. H. Derry, town, applying
for position of Constable.
From Grand View hotel, applying
for license to sell liquor.
From John T. Wood, town, applying
for position on police force.
From H. M. Leonard, asking that he
be given an opportunity to place the
city debentures on the market.
From W. H. Dockstader, Victoria,
applying for position of Chief of Police.
From F. W. Kelly complaining about
the dangerous condition of the roads.
City Solicitor.
Alderman Pattullo stated that one
of the first things the council should do
was to appoint a city solicitor as bylaws have to be prepared shortly,
and legal advice is required at all times.
Alderman Mobley agreed with this,
but said that from what he could learn
the solicitors were expecting to receive
an outrageous salary. He had heard
$4,000 and $5,000 mentioned.
Aid. Mclntyre presumed that a larger
salary would have to be paid here than
elsewhere on account of the conditions
being different. He did not see how the
council could be justified in paying such
a salary as mentioned.
Alderman Hilditch said that Vancouver
only paid $1,200.
Aid. Pattullo did not think the city
could get a solicitor the first year for
less than $3000, as he would be kept
busy the greater part of his time. After
the by-laws are framed up, and the heavy
work done, a smaller salary could be
paid.
Aid. Hilditch thought the lawyers
should be asked to tender for the position
Aid. Smith suggested that a solicitor
be employed for three months at a
salary of $250 per month and after that
time the council could decide what to
do.
This suggestion met with general
approval and was adopted. The lawyers
will be communicated with by the
Finance Committee. The city to furnish
a stenographer.
City   Clerk.
Aid. Hilditch introduced the matter
of a city clerk, and after some discussion
it was decided that the mayor secure
a man to fill the psotion temporarily.
Centre   St.   Road.
Aid. Lynch in referring to the repairs
on Centre street reminded the council
that that was G. T. P. property. The
company had also refused to spend any
more money on it, but intended to turn
it over to the city, if not exactly in the
same place as it is now, it would be quite
near. He thought the city should look
after this at once.
On the suggestion of Aid. Pattullo,
the mayor was instructed to take the
matter up with Mr. Chamberlain.
His Worship said he would do so as
a whole new deck was needed on the
road and a proper grade should be struck
before any great expense was put on
the road.
Temporary  Quarters.
His Worship stated that in connection
with temporary quarters for the City
Hall he had seen Mr Christie about the
old Bank of Commerce building. He
had been referred to Mr. Ryley, but
he had not heard from him yet. He said
the streets and property committee
should get busy at once on plans for a
city hall and police station. He understood from Mr. Manson that there was
a site near the fire hall.
Aid. Mobley said the council should
decide on rate of taxation for this year
in order to get finances.
Alderman Pattullo suggested that
each committee prepare an estimate of
their requirements for the year.
Mayor Stork said the city would issue
debentures for telephone, electric light
plant and these could all be voted on
by the people at the one time.
There was a discussion caused by
Alderman Lynch mentioning the water
supply from Woodworth lake. In this
matter the services of one or two engineers and a solicitor were required and
the matter should be taken up at once.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the Streets
committee be instructed to prepre a
report re engaging a temporary engineer
and present ti at the next meeting. Aid.
Mobley seconded the motion and it
carried.
Alderman Barrow again brought up
the question of a temporary engineer
to have the streets repaired and other
work cleaned up so the permanent man
would not be unnecessarily delayed
in starting on the big work.
Alderman Mobley moved that the
Streets committee be authorized to
proceed at once with repairing the
plank roads���carried.
Alderman Hilditch asked for instructions as to the purchase of the necessary
lumber and supplies for repairs. He was
told by the mayor to get whatever was
eeded, whereever he wished for the
present.
ELECTED THEIR OFFICERS

Mining Engineer   Lost.
Port Arthur, May 26.-Capt. Roland,
one of the best known mining engineers
of Ontario, is lost in the woods. He is
80 years old and was with Roberts at
the relief of Lucknow.
BIG FIRE AT METLAKATLA
Camping Party Started Bonfire In
The Grass���Spread Rapidly And
The   Village   Was   Threatened.
Metlakatla had a close call yesterday
from being destroyed by fire. It took
the united efforts of all the villagers for
a couple of hours to stop the onward
march of the flames, which looked at
times to be very dangerous. The fire
was caused by a party of picnickers
from Prince Rupert who started a bon
fire in the dry grass and hay. Everything
in the neighbourhood was perfectly
dry and the bonfire got away from the
watchers and was soon licking up the hay
in large quantities. It sprung rapidly
towards the village and all hands turned
in and helped. The fire engine did good
service and the natives worked like
Trojans.
Picnic and camping parties should
be particular about their camp fires.
There is no limit to the damage that a
little carelessness will cause. Metlakatla
was nearly destroyed and had it not been
that all the villagers were enjoying the
holiday at home, and listening to the
band on the green.the result would have
been disastrous. As it was, the fire was
a big one and could be plainly seen from
Prince  Rupert.
BIG REAL ESTATE DEAL.
C. D. Newton Closed One for $10,000
and Has a $34,000 Deal Pending.
Real estate is now on the move again.
Big deals are. being put through. Yesterday C. D. Newton, corner of Sixth
street and Third avenue, closed a deal
whereby Richard Sargeant, of Hazelton, becomes the owner of lots 18 and
19, block 30, section 1. The price paid
was $10,000, or $5000 a lot. These lots
at the original sale a year ago brought
$1800.
Another deal is practically closed for a
property in block 31. The price is
$15,000, and the transaction will be consummated in a day or two. It is understood that a substantial building will be
erected on it.
One of the largest real estate deals
put through for a longtime is now being
closed by Mr. Newton for a property in
block 31. It will bring $34,000. An
outside party is purchasing it, and a
large commercial building will be erected, particulars of which will be given
later.
George V. to Arbitrate.
Representatives ot the American and
Chilean governments in London having
charge of the celebrated Alsop claim,
which was shortly to have been presented to King Edward for arbitration, have
been informed by the United States
government and that of Chili that King
George V will undertake the arbitration
of this claim and the matter will be presented to him about August 1 next.
SIXTY DOLLAR PANS.
Fairbanks   Depopulated   by   the
Stampede to Idibarod.
Judge Kellum, of Fairbanks, was a
passenger on the Cottage City last night.
He is hurrying on to Iditarod, having
received the most encouraging reports
from the new diggings. The judge says
he grubstaked a man in two or three
months ago, and this man was lucky
enough to locate some good ground. He
writes that sixty-dollar pans are common,
and that there is as wild an excitment in
the new camp as when gold was first
struck in the Klondike.
The judge said while here that from
all he has heard from his partner and from
other sources the Iditarod is bound to be
a second Klondike, or even a greater. He
learns that Fairbanks is wholly depopulated and that there is difficulty in getting men to finish up the clean-up of the
winter dumps. A bureau for the employment of men for the Tanana district
was in operation in Seattle, but the men
who might have gone in were all making
their way to the new diggings. > A ���'

Two horses are in the minds of turfites the world over for this year's English
Derby, which will be worth $32,500, says
an English paper. They are Neil Gow,
the property of Lord Rosebery, and Lem-
berg, owned by Mr. Fairlie.
Recent cricket scores are: Lancashire
113, Kent 237; Surrey 226 and 140 for 5
declared, Essex 155, and 74 for 4; Warwick 139, Northampton 94 and 122 for 6;
Derbyshire 174, and 173, Sussex 178 and
48 for 1. All drawn Leicestershire vs.
Yorkshire match abandoned.
One hears much talk on all sides, says
a London sporting journal regarding the
running of this year's Derby at Epsom on
June 1, and opinion is pretty evenly
divided between Lord Roseberry's Neil
Gow and Lemburg, while the early betting on the result has been unusually
heavy.
Billy Delaney, under whose training
and management James J. Jefferies
and James J. Corbett each became champion heavyweight pugilist of the world,

Johnson.
Abbie Wood, the diminutive Mont-
realer, won the second Canadian Derby
Marathon at the Island stadium Tuesday from a large and classy field of the
best long distance men in Amarica. He
also established a new Marathon record,
of 2.34.102-5 for the 26 miles 385 yards,
the previous record of 2.39.47 being set
up by John D. Marsh in the Derby Marathon of last year held on the same
grounds.
Russell and recently placed on exhibition
at Montreal are of more than ordinary
importance, not only because they mark
an advance in Canadian national art
as applied to Rocky Mountain scenery,
but also because they are the first pictures ever painted of the wild and roman-
ric region through which the G. T.
Pacific is slowly forging its way eastward
from Prince Rupert. Mr. G. Home-
Russell has long been recognized by the
Canadian public as one of the formost
of Canadian artists; he was recently
elected a member of the Royal Canadian
Academy. He is a Scotsman, hailing from
Banffshire. Mr. Home Russell set out
for Montreal some twenty y3ars ago
taking with him the training and traditions of the Scottish school of artists.
The picture of "Snowshoe Mountain" is
a striking portrayal of one of Nature's
factories with rivers in the making. Upon
the massive shoulders of this great peak
is one of the glaciers so plentiful in the
Rockies, and from it can be seen emerging the beginning of a silvery river. It is
one of those scenes that never fade from
the minds of those who have travelled in
the Rockies."
Bri tish Columbia Mining.
British Columbia has often been called
"The Mineral Province." This is because
the fame of her mines has gone forth to
make her the most talked of mining
area in America. Nor have the people
been mistaken in supposing this western
empire to be of phenomenal richness.
Rather have the reports been too con-
svative. Even though the mineral res-
resources have made the province famous, they cannot be spoken of with a full
appreciation of their value by those who
have not seen for themselves the great
panorama of mountains and rivers, the
one bearing huge masses of ore, and the
other pure glittering grains. Until one
has seen those things, one cannot readily
imagine the vast wealth of British Columbia's mines.
We are informed that this province
produces about one-third of the entire
mineral output of Canada, and that
practically every ounce of that ore, with a
great deal from the United States, is
treated in provincial smelters. In the
upper country there are eight of those
smelters, treating ore from one hundred
and seventy mines. And this is but a
portion of the work that might be done,
and that will be done in the near future.
A very competent mining engineer gave
it to us as his professional opinion'that
Stewart, the new city, at the head of
Portland Canal, is the best mining town
in British Columbia. He considers the
development in that district the most
wonderful in Canada. The Queen
Charlottle group should also become the
contre of great activity this summer, and
the Kootenay, Nicola Vulley, and Boundary country properties, as well as Vancouver Island, are giving their owners
more satisfaction  than  ever.
Opportunities.
The first of two games for the Toronto
city lacrosse championship was played
on Monday between the Torontos and
Tecumsehs at Scarboro beach, the home
grounds of the Torontos. It resulted in
a score of six each. Torontos were faster than the Tecumsehs, but had too many
on the penalty bench during the game,
which was rough throughout. There were
ten penalties in the first quarter, twelve
in the second, two in the third and eleven
in the fourth.

powerful nations Great Britain
the United States will be the constants. The future of New Eng-
tnd fishery industry will be at stake.
Fhe most eminent lawyers of both
Jountries will participate in the arguments before the highest international
libunal in the world.
I The question in dispute is the right
the Americans to take fish in New-
lundland waters and the condition
kider which the right may be exercised.
[The fisheries controversy is the first
fcse to be referred to the permanent
hurt at the Hague for arbitration un-
|er the general arbitration treaty between
(ie United States and  Great Britain.
: court will consist of the following
lembers of the parmanent court at

lominion of Canada.
I The issues involved in the case are
ue chiefly to differences which have
risen  between  the  two   governments

he provisions of Articles of the treaty
11818, and are covered by the questions

DIPLOMATIC CONTROVERSY.
serious diplomatic controversy is
1 progress between the German government on one side and Great Britain and
lissia on the other, regarding the open
door in Persia. Germany firmly protests against the joint warning of the
other two powers in Persia not to grant
railway concessions to the Germans.
This warning was delivered some weeks
ago, and the dspute arose, much as did
the difference between Germany and
France in Morrocco.
BRITISH NAVAL TOUR.
England will be the next country to
assemble a battleship fleet for a trip
round the world. The trip will not
talte place until the autumn of next
year. This will make it possible for
the 26,000-ton battleship of the Princess Royal type���the largest in the
world���to be at the head of the naval
procession. The boats will stop at various foreign ports and the trip will
consume four years. Two hundred ships
of all classes will be included, and about
fifteem submarines are to accompany the
Dreadnoughts. This will be the first
time in history that the little craft
will be tested by the severe strain of
ocean service. The fleet will be subdivided for visits to Chinese and Indian
ports and at the conclusion of these
visits the fleet will assemble in the yellow
sea, where long stops will be made at
Japanese ports. They they will go to
San Fransisco and later visit British
Columbia ports before sailing for home.
OUT CITY'S PROMISE.
'Opportunities' Says Pioneers' Opinion of Site is Already Vindicated.
Australia In Doubt.
��� Melbourne May 24.-;The Age says the
question has been raised as to whether
the imperial act dealing with the accession of the sovereign is applicable to Australia, and whether the necessity may
arise, inasmuch as the federal Parliament has neither met nor been constituted, of reconvening the last Parliament or holding fresh elections. The
governor-general, the Age says, has referred the question to the attorney-
general.

itable destiny*���a great city. In short:
British Columbia is the land of opportunity, and the new cities are the opportunities.���Opportunities.
Fortune awaits the new-comer in British Columbia. The older inhabitants she
has already served. But, to the comparatively new settler, she beckons from
the .cities and the mountains, from the
rich mines and the teeming waters, from
the mighty forests and the rolling plains.
She calls from every rushing river and
dashing mountain torrent, as loudly,
strongly, and irresistibly as She does from
the busy city streets and humming,
smoking factory districts. Her cry from
the Land of Opportunities is heard over
all the earth, and, by the thousands,
men and women are answering it, and
coming towards its source, eager for that
prosperity that their means cannot
assure them in older lands.
The splendid virility of the genuine
townsites, and their remarkable, though
solid, growth must show the worth of
British Columbia's new cities. Has not
Prince Rupert vindicated the opinion
held of it by the men who first laid out
the townsite? Is not Stewart leaping
rapidly to the front, and offering innumerable openings to business and professional men? And Fort George bids fair
to become one of the most important
centres of the province. There are many
more, all flourishing and reliable, and
all eagerly welcoming the man with
small or large capital and presenting to
him unrivalled opportunities for profitable investment. The history of Vancouver, advancing with one gigantic
stride from half a cleared forest to
the commercial metropolis of the province, shall, in a, sense, be the history of
the new cities. The most pessimistic in
the province, if there are any, can say
that each will become the metropolis of
its own district, fed by the immense
natural resources from the Pacific to the
Rockies and the international boundary
line to the Arctic Circle, with railways
and rivers working towards the inev-
Port Alberni Advances.
Recent arrivals from Port Zlberni
say that the progress of that new town
within the past month has been very
marked and that there is no doubt
about the future of the plans now. "When
the excitement at Stewart falls off,"
said one of the Albernites, "the natural
thing will be to turn to Port Alberni
and then youwill see the rapid advance
in prices that characterized Stewart and
Prince Rupert repeated. Port Alberni
is next!"

Mill   Lena   Duthie   Gave   A   High
Class    Programme.
Miss Lena Duthie is a very talented
lady. She delighted a good sized audience of Prince Rupert's best citizens
last night. The programme was made
up of Scotch and Irish songs, all of which
were sung by Miss Duthie in costume.
They were songs which everyone knew,
and were rendered in a manner pleasing
to all. Miss Duthie has a splendid
voice which is under perfect control,
and being Scotch herself has the correct
accent, void of all affectation. The
concert was of a high order and each
selection was warmly applauded. By
request Miss Duthie sang Annie Laurie.
Last night's concert marked the
opening of Mclntyre Hall as a public
assembly hall, and Prince Rupert is
fortunate in securing such a place. It
is large, well furnished and comfortable.
Miss Duthie will give an entire change
of programme this evening.

The big sale of Kelly-Carruthers department store is meeting with great
success. Since the opening on Wednesday morning, a large quantity of goods

most people have any idea of. Kelly
Carruthers have been carrying a very
large stock of dry goods, clothing, boots
and shoes and groceries and will mean
a lot of selling and many bargains before
the store is empty. Among their lines
are: For men, a complete stock of
clothes, furnishings, hats, caps, boots
and shoes and rubber goods. For women;
a full line of dry goods and furnishings,,
women's and childrens' boots and shoes,
and groceries of all kinds and of the best
quality. See their advertisement on
