I ASSESSMENT
New York, Sept. 16.���Ernest Ger-
bracht, former superintendent of the
Williamsburg Refinery of the American Refining Company, who with Charles
R. Heike, former secretary and treasurer of the company, was convicted
last spring of conspiracy to defraud the
government by the underweighing of
sugar, was today sentenced to two years
in the federal prison at Atlanta, Ga., and
lined $5,000 by Judge Martin in the
United States court.
After imposing the sentence Judge
Martin granted a stay of appeal and
fixed bail at $25,000. Sentence on
Heike, who has been called "the man
higher up," is still pending.
The conviction of Heike and Ger-
bracht was in large measure brought
about by the testimony of Oliver Spitzer,
former dock superintendent, who following his conviction and the serving
of a part of his sentence at Atlanta
turned state's   evidence.    Spitzer  was
pardoned by President Taft.

Vancouver, Sept. 17.���In the struggle
for the pennant yesterday Spokane and
Vancouver played two games. The first
one resulted in Vancouver scoring nine
to her opponent's one. But in the second
game Spokane got four and Vancouver
failed to score. By this win Spokane
cinches the pennant.
There was no game at Seattle yesterday ,it being called off on account of
rain.

(Special to the Optimist)
Melbourne, aSept. 17.���The Australian
government was very  nearly defeated
in the senate over the vote for the new
federal capital.   It is an immense undertaking and is to be the largest and most
stately capital the world has ever known.
Tbe expense is naturally enormous but
it passed the house by a small majority
and the opposition to it in the senate
was entirely unexpected.   So strong was
the feeling against the gigantic enterprise in the upper house that the bill
would have been defeated but that one
of the Liberal  members came to  the
rescue and vdted for it.   This saved the
party.
���Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sept. 17.���It is reported
here that the British Columbia & Alaska
railway has forestalled the Grand Trunk
Pacific in the route from Fort George to
Vancouver. The former company has
succeeded in obtaining a provincial
charter. It is believed the latter will
now have to seek a new route.

RUMOR  THAT  AYLESWORTH   IS

Berlin, Sept. 17.���A bomb was discovered on the railway track this morning, near Funkirschem. Emperor William's special train,, taking home on a
hunting trip, was due in a few minutes
and would have exploded the bomb.
Lacrosse  Game   Today
New Westminster, Sept. 17.���(Special)���It is estimated that if the weather
continues fine during the day twelve
thousand people will witness the match
for the Minto cup between the Nationals and the local team.
(Special to the Optimist)
Johannesburg, Sept. 17.���The final
returns in the South African Confederation elections are as follows:
Nationalists 62, Unionists 36, Labor 4,
Independents 10.
General Botha is crushed by his
personal defeat. He says he will not
run again but leave the formation of the
cabinet to other hands. It is believed
that his attitude of staunch loyalty all
through the campaign largely affected
the vote of those Boers in whom still
rankle grievances due to the South
African war.

C|tawa, Sept. 16.���It is rumored in

from Europe, will immediately tender h|s resignation as minister of justice.
His hearing is now so bad that the

STOCK EXCHANGE SEAT
Plunger Patten's Seat Did Not Bring
Luck to Purchaser
New York, .Sept. 16.���The purchase
of James Patten's stock exchange seat
has proved a losing investment for
Harry L. Terry. Terry bought the
seat on August 18 for $70,000, the deal
being completed through the agency
of wireless telegraph as Mr. Patten
was then on the ocean. Terry has
now sold it for $66,000 to W. W. Pell,
a curb broker, so that the investment
stands him a lots of $6000, counting
Finding His Estate Tied Up By Six
Executors Discouraged Her, But
She Haa Twenty Thousand Annually Anyway.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Sept. 17.���Several rumors
have been afloat recently that Madame
Cavalieri was to seek a divorce from
Millionaire Chandler and as often denied.
The last denial was that the eminent
singer has changed her mind upon finding that she would be entitled to no
part of her husband's estate, his patrimony having been left in the hands of
six trustees who could refuse to pay even
alimony.
It now transpires, how ver, that she
is entitled to $20,000 per annum from
her husband whatever happens, so she
will sue for a separation.
WAGES  AS  WELL   AS   SALARIES
It is also rumored that his successor as minister of justice will be Mr.

-   -* ���umm    the   obiect|dividendm_ forty years
President of Board of Directors
States His Side of Case Very Frankly
And Mr. Wilson Draws Some
Interesting Conclusions.
C. M. Wilson, who returned in the
Prince Rupert from a business trip into
Oregon, travelled from here on the
Prince George as far as Seattle with the
Grand Trunk Pacific party, and as his
family in England have been stockholders in the Grand Trunk for two
generations he believes that Mr. Smithers
chairman of the London board of
directors, talked rather more frankly
with him then to others on the assessment of the railway's property here
and the labor question.
Mr. Smithers stated that he had
personally raised fifty million dollars
for the Grand Trunk Pacific's share this
year, apart from that portion of construction cost guaranteed by the Dominion government, and that he has to go
back and account for it in order to get
more. Prince Rupert people, he said,
who for months after the sale made one
hundred per cent per month on their
actual cash investments in real estate,
should consider the appalling fact that
the ordinary Grand Trunk Pacific
stockholders have never had a cent of
of railway commissioners, the object
being to strengthen the Liberal party
in Ontario, where the cabinet fighting force would then be Messrs. George
P. Graham, Mackenzie King and Mabee.
However, in other circles it is stated
that Mr. Aylesworth will not resign
until the end of the present parliamentary term.

seat so soon after its purchase is not
given.
Steamer   Inlander   Sails  Tomorrow
The steamer Inlander waa sailing tomorrow in any event, as she is probably
the only boat that can navigate Skeena
at a very low stage of water. This rain,
however, will help to bring the river up
to a navigable stage again, and she
will be able to make a quicker trip to
Hazelton.
Immigration Methoda Censured
Port Arthur, .Sept. 17.���(Special)���
Severe criticism of the immigration methods of the sominion government was
the feature of the session of the trade and
labor congress last evening.
For   August
Steamer Conveyor Damaged
Owing to the low water the steamer
Conveyor struck a rock above the canyon and has been taken to the drydock
to be repaired. It is reported that she
is not badly damaged.
It is too much to expect- a romantic girl to express a soulful yearning
over a red-hot cookstove in summer.
Besides the $360 paid in salaries to
the Prince Rupert Telephone service
staff during August there was expended
on the construction of the line during
the month the Bum of $1030.89 including
the wages of the following:- Four line
men at 50 cents per hour; one cable
special at 56 5-9 cents per hour; one line
man at 40 cents per hour; three groundsmen, and one laborer, at 37 1-2 cents
per hour; and one wire chief at 50 cents
per hour. The total cost of the telephone
service for August is therefore $1390.39.
FACE MARRED FOR LIFE
Aggrieved  Suitor Throws  Bottle of
Vitol   on   Sweetheart
(Special to the Optimist)
San Francisco, aSept. 17.���During a
quarrel with his sweetheart a nan named
Hennessy last night dashed the contents
of a bottle of vitrol in the girl's face and
made his escape. She was formerly an
actress and the physicians say she Ih
now marred for life. The miscreant who
was guilty of the cowardly act is being
sought for by the police.
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, aSept. 17.���The rumor is
again current that Premier Sifton will
succeed Frank Oliver in the federal
cabinet, the latter being about to resign
owing to his differences with other
members of the cabinet.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has gone home to
Athabaakerville for a visit, and other
ministers are also away, so there will be
no business of any importance until the
end of next week.
FOILED BY THE TELLER
His Name Waa Jesse Dare, and He
Was Not a Jesse James
(Special to the Optimist)
Denver, Sept. 17.���Jesse Dare has been
arrested for an attempted to hold up
the bank at Clay Center, and the police
say that he has confessed. He made a
bold attempt at the robbery but in face
of the pistol held in the steady hand of tht
bank teller beat a hasty retreat.
Death of  Mra.  Macdonald
Mrs. Macdonold died this morning
of heart disease. She had been sick
for some time but' was showing signs
of recovery this morning when her husband, who is employed as a steam shovel engineer for Ross and McColl, left
for his work. The nurse came on then,
finding Mrs. Macdonald resting easy,
but soon after the patient was suddenly taken with heart disease and expired. The body will probably be sent to
Montreal for burial.
Their fully paid $500 shares today
are worth about $125. The first preference stock and the second preference have fared no better; the third
preference stockholders have had an
occasional dividend, and of course the
four per cent debenture and the four
per cent guaranteed have received their's
regularly.
This should illustrate, said Mr. Smither
the difficulty of calling again upon the
long suffering British stockholders.   To
the British shareholder and to any fair-
minded Prince Rupertite, it must appear
like  highway  robbery  that  this  city,
which the Grand Trunk Pacific created,
should ask it to pay on its water frontage
and yardage not only a greater proportional but a much larger concrete
amount   than   established   centres   of
traffic such as Toronto and  Montreal
are even at this stage asking them to pay.
Mr. Smithers says that the unexpected
cost of construction, due chiefly to tbe
labor question in the mountain section,
has jeopardized even a four per cent
operating profit on completion.     The
two  circumstances  have  caused   them
to temporarily, at least, hold  up   construction at this end.
"That is what Mr. Smithers said to
me," remarks Mr. Wilson. "Now if
it were that Prince Rupert was a spontaneous growth of local natural resources," Mr. Wilson continued, "we
could afford to be all Napoleons, as
the Ottawa politicians said we were,
and accept our worthy mayor's statement at the Laurier banquet that the
city council did not care a d  for
anyone. But the wise citizens know
that we are but a creation of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and of the Ottawa and
Victoria governments; and if, as the
cynic says, gratitude is a lively appreciations of benefits to come, then
it is up to Prince Rupert to show at
least this gratitude to its parents, and
not let Sir Wilfrid go away generously
complaining that we had asked him for
nothing.

Rupert might have had," goes on Mr.

PULL WITH LAURIER
Old Story Bobs Up With a New Face
On It
Montreal, Sept. 14.���Apropos of the
Eucharistic Congress which is at present
being held here, they are telling a new
story around town. It is a sort of supplement to one well known in Ontario,
when the habitant com ng into civilization after years in the back woods
heard of the death of Queen Victoria,
and of the succession of King Edward
to the throne.
"What   a   pull   that   man   Edward
I must have with Laurier," the habitant
exclaimed.
This story concerns the same habitant
' who on an another occasion came from
I the woods and learned of the demise of
j Pope Leo XIII.
"What,  Leon  Treize dead?"  he ex-
: claimed. "That's too bad." Then���
"Well, I'll bet you no Protestant gets
that job from Laurier."

NEW IKEDA COMPANY
Syndicate Handling Japanese Mine
Has  Been   Reorganized
The Ikeda syndicate has been reorganized and will be known as the Ikeda
Mines, Limited. It is a Vancouver
venture, having been organized by Mr.
S. J. Castlemen, .of that city, those
associated with him being Messrs.
R. P. McLennan, W. H. Armstrong,
George Harrison, W. C. Ditmars, W. R.
Phillips, F. W. Lantz, of Vancouver;
John F. Gait, of Winnipeg, and Senator
J. H. Ross, ex-governor of the Yukon,
Ottawa.
Last autumn the syndicate bonded
this group of copper properties at Ikeda
Bay, Moresby Island, Queen Charlottes,
for $200,000 and the second payment
of $30,000 has just been made. A
Japanese company opened up the mine
its shipments totalling 6,500 tons, yielding average values of from 4 to 5 per
cent, copper, three ounces of silver and
$3 gold a ton. The original owners have
consented to take the balance of the
purchase price in stock in the new company, except $12,000 due in March next.
The authorized capital of the new company will be $850,000 in shares of the par
value of $1 each. The group comprises
forty-seven claims and eight fractions,
only one having undergone any development.
Mr. A. G. Larson, consulting mining
engineer, of Vancouver, soon after the
bond was secured recommended using a
diamond drill and this proved the existence of two new ore bodies. The
ore ran as high as 18 per cent, copper,
half an ounce in gold and several ounces of silver to the ton. Further development work is now to be undertaken, and prospects are regarded as
very rosy, indeed.
E.   R.   Finney's  Little   Frisk
Coming down from Stewart yesterday
on board the Prince Rupert E. R. Finney
got a little excited owing to the fleet, it
is thought, of the luggage he brought
aboard with him at Stewart���in a bottle.
He got ;ngry with a chair and used it
violently, but was gently persuaded to
desist, by the skipper and a number of
the crew who mildly expostulated with
him. After being treated to a period of
r st and quiet behind a securely fastened
door, he was landed at Prince Rupert
city where he is now continuing the
'rest and quiet" treatment under care
of Chief McCarvell until the county
officials prescribe for his future.

Plunger Patten's Seat Did Not Bring
Luck to Purchaser
New York, Sept. 16.���The purchase
of James Patten's stock exchange seat
has proved a losing investment for
Harry L. Terry. Terry bought the
seat on August 18 for $70,000, the deal
being completed through the agency
of wireless telegraph as Mr. Patten
was then on the ocean. Terry has
now sold it for $66,000 to W. W. Pell,
a curb broker, so that the investment
stands him a loss of $6000, counting
a $2000 tax which the seller has to
pay. Terry's reason for selling the
seat so soon after its purchase ia not
given.
Steamer   Inlander   Sails  Tomorrow
The steamer Inlander was sailing tomorrow in any event, as she is probably

New York, Sept. 17.���Several rumors
have been afloat recently that Madame
Cavalieri was to seek a divorce from
Millionaire Chandler and as often denied.
The last denial was that the eminent
singer has changed her mind upon finding that she would be entitled to no
part of her husband's estate, his patrimony having been left in the hands of
six trustees who could refuse to pay even
alimony.
It now transpires, how ver, that she
is entitled to $20,000 per annum from
her husband whatever happens, so she
will sue for a separation.

(Jtawa, Sept. 16.���It is rumored in
parliamentary circles that the Hon.
A. B. Aylesworth, when he returns
from Europe, will immediately tender his resignation as minister of justice.
His hearing is now so bad that the

It is also rumored that his successor as minister of justice will be Mr.
Justice Mabee, chairman of the board
of railway commissioners, the object
being to strengthen the Liberal party
in Ontario, where the cabinet fighting force would then be Messrs. George
P. Graham, Mackenzie King and Mabee.
However, in other circles it is stated

until the end of the present parliamentary term.

FOILED BY THE TELLER
C. M. Wilson, who returned in the
Prince Rupert from a business trip into
Oregon, travelled from here on the
Prince George as far as Seattle with the
Grand Trunk Pacific party, and as his
family in England have been stockholders in the Grand Trunk for two
generations he believes that Mr. Smithers
chairman of the London board of
directors, talked rather more frankly
with him then to others on the assessment of the railway's property here
and the labor question.
Mr. Smithers stated that he had
personally raised fifty million dollars
for the Grand Trunk Pacific's share this
year, apart from that portion of construction cost guaranteed by the Dominion government, and that he has to go
back and account for it in order to get
more. Prince Rupert people, he said,
who for months after the sale made one
hundred per cent per month on their
actual cash investments in real estate,
should consider the appalling fact that
the ordinary Grand Trunk Pacific
stockholders have never had a cent of
dividend in forty years.
Their fully paid $600 shares today
are worth about $125. The first pre-
I ference stock and the second preference have fared no better; the third
preference stockholders have had an
occasional dividend, and of course the
four per cent debenture and the four
per cent guaranteed have received their's
regularly.
This should illustrate, said Mr. Smither
the difficulty of calling again upon the
long suffering British stockholders. To
the British shareholder and to any fair-
minded Prince Rupertite, it must appear
like highway robbery that this city,
which the Grand Trunk Pacific created,
should ask it to pay on its water frontage
and yardage not only a greater proportional but a much larger concrete
amount than established centres of
traffic such as Toronto and Montreal
are even at this stage asking them to pay.
Mr. Smithers says that the unexpected
cost of construction, due chiefly to the
iway, so there will be , . x.     .      '   " '

San Francisco, Sept. 17.���During a
quarrel with his sweetheart a nan named
Hennessy last night dashed the contents
of a bottle of vitrol in the girl's face and
made his escape. She was formerly ah

was guilty of the cowardly act is being
sought for by the police.
(Special to the Optimist)
Denver, Sept. 17.���Jesse Dare haa been

the bank at Clay Center, and the police
aay that he has confessed. He made a
bold attempt at the robbery but in face

Death of  Mrs.   Macdonald
Mrs. Macdonold died this morning
of heart disease. She had been sick
for some time but' was showing signs
of recovery this morning when her husband, who is employed as a steam Bhov-

for his work. The nurse came on then,
finding Mrs. Macdonald resting easy,
but Boon after the patient was suddenly taken with heart disease and expired. The body will probably be sent to
Montreal for burial.
struction at this end.      	
"That is what Mr. Smithers said to
me," remarks Mr. Wilson. "Now if
it were that Prince Rupert was a spontaneous growth of local natural resources," Mr. Wilson continued, "we
could afford to be all Napoleons, as
the Ottawa politicians said we were,
and accept our worthy mayor's statement at the Laurier banquet that the
city council did not care a d  for
anyone. But the wise citizens know
that we are but a creation of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and of the Ottawa and
Victoria governments; and if, as the
cynic says, gratitude is a lively appreciations of benefits to come, then
it is up to Prince Rupert to show at
least this gratitude to its parents, and
not let Sir Wilfrid go away generously
complaining that we had asked him for
nothing.

Rupert might have had," goes on Mr.'

The statement is made that if the
Railway Commission can be convinced
that no other route is available, the

the West than in the East. We have
the best feeling towards both the disputing companies and would be exceedingly sorry if anything arose to
delay the construction of either of them.

Taking on as a basis an estimate of the population of Canada mad* by the
census bureau, the London Advertiser says that the next redistribution will work
out as follows:
Quebec (fixed)      65
Ontario     82
Maritime Provinces     32
Manitoba     15
Saskatchewan      -2
Alberta     10
British Columbia     10
Total      226
The Toronto Star adds: "This would mean an increase of 13 for the Western
Provinces, a loss of 4 for Ontario, and a loss of 4 for the Maritime Provinces. There
may be some surprise and disappointment in Ontario over the fact that the
representation is diminished, although the population has increased by half a mil
lion. Thisis due to the fact that there has been a still greater proportionate increase-
in Quebec, and that the unit of representation is made by dividing 65, the fixed
representation of Quebec, into the population of that Province.
"The very rapid growth of Quebec, nearly half a million in ten years, also
makes the increase in the representation of the Western Provinces somewhat smaller
than was expected from the remarkable immigration of the last decade. They will
have 47 members instead of 34. While this increase is not sensational, it means that
the West will have more than twenty per cent of the representation in the House,
instead of fifteen.
"Quality counts even more than quantity in representation. Those Provinces
which are not satisfied with the results of the census ought to make a special effort
to elect representatives of such a kind as to command attention at Ottawa.' The
nominating conventions of both parties should make special efforts to select the
best and most forceful men for candidates."
The re-distribution upon the above estimate will give British Columbia three
more seats than she holds at present. Vancouver will likely get another member
and it is probable that Comox-Atlin district will be separated.
Some agitators on the white man's town question have been trying to make
unfair criticism of the license commissioners by circulating the report that they'were
not insistant on the prohibition of oriental labor clause. Such a report is entirely
misleading and is either due to ignorance or motive. In the instance of the G. T. P.
Inn license Commissioner Merryfield even went so far as to instruct the clerk to
withhold the license until the orientals were discharged. The manager is now South
securing a new staff. The license was issued, to-day, and the Orientals have been
discharged.
It was noticable that the first morning after the opening of the licensed bar
there were no police court cases.

Three Men and a Mans Son
��!���"�����tt
A Jingle About a Commission and  What Came of It
tw-mmmmfl.
>.m wmmr^mt �� aMaa.
It  wasn't  so  many  days  ago,
In a city by the sea,
A  Commission sat of men you  know,
Who numbered exactly three.
Oh,  one  is  a  very  cheerful   park,
(Just   test   your   guessing   skill),
The hammer one might  fitly wield,
One's a bird with a long, long bill.
They sat down together, side by side,
To consider the causes why
A  City that bears a Prince's name,
Should  longer remain so   "dry".
Others  there   were  around   the   board,
And one was a Man's son.       He
As the talk waxed long, waxed hot and strong
Saying   "Bunch of Jack Asses, We!"
Then silence fell on the multitude
That had gathered there to see
The things that were done for the city's good
At the hands of the Chosen Three.
But   later  the   Hammer   Wielder  said,
In  accents soft  and mild,
To the Man's son who the Act explained,
'"Tis a problem deep, my child,
And if we're as long eared as you said
How can we comprehend?
We'll table the thing till next we meet,
There  let  the  matter end."
They met again.  (Men  hail  tifk Day!)
In  that  city  by  the  sea;
And citizens there now blithe and gay
May  drink  something else  than  tea!''

Royal and  Union Banks
Toronto, Sept 17.���(Special)���The report that the Royal Bank of Canada
"has taken over the Union Bank is denied
by the directors of the latter.
Never judge a man's liberality on
what he spends on himself.
A widow can get more than even
with an old bachelor by marrying
him.
In the sailor's family the father iB
the mainstay and the mother the
spanker.
It's up to every man to become
chairman of the advisory board of his
own affairs.
When you see a woman wearing a
clinging gown it's a sign she thinks
she has a good figure.
Wilson, "has already fallen into the eager
maw of Victoria. Seattle is smugly
congratulating itself on its fine new
Grand Trunk Pacific dock and on the
fact that owing to our squabbles it will
hold the Alaska trade a little longer
that it thought likely. Vancouver has
taken on new life because she hopes to
entice the Grand Trunk Pacific traffic
down the Fraser valley.
"Mr. Smithers asked me if the city
council were all socialists I could not
help but laugh. But I explained that they
are broad-gauge Westerners of exceptional business ability and large
property qualifications. But how they
have permitted themselves to be so
misunderstood in a quarter that matters
most of all is a question I would like to
put myself.
"Mr. Smithers said the company was
perfectly willing to pay the assessment
on all its unsold lots and building sections,
and not even to ask any special allocation of such taxes back to its own
property. It is only the taxes on the
water frontage and yardage that has
made the company shut down on us.
Now, aB a real estate man myself, I am
able to see the Prince Rupert point of
view, i hope to be a citizen as long aa
I live, but it does seem to me absolutely
vital for us to proceed in harmony with
the Grand Trunk Pacific, our parent,.
I am, however, not making these remarks in any spirit of criticism, and
especially not of our city councillors
who are working so hard at the stiff
task before them."

LIFE INSURANCE
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher:
"Your affairs may become involved
and your property taken for debt'
but a thousand dollars insurance on
your life cannot be taken for debt-
cannot be alienated from your heirs'
and if you have chosen your Company discreetly, is subject to no
commercial risks. It is as nearly
sure as anything earthly can be."
Bishop Henry C. Potter.
"Life Insurance has advantages,
especially to persons of small means,'
which it does not seem easy to over-
slate. To those of my own profession it furnishes a method of laying
by for 'a rainy day' of all the most
practicable and effectual."
President Wm. H. Taft:
"A man in office without means
must abandon the hope of making
the future of his family luxuriously
comfortable. All a man can do under existing circumstances to safeguard his family is to get his life insured."
Hon. Theodore Roosevelt:
"Life Insurance increases the stability of the business world, raises
its moral tone and puts a premium
upon those habits of thrift and saving which are so essential to the
welfare of the people as a body."

Customs  Department Order Turns
Salts into Sign Writers
There was a buzz and a busy time
around the mosquito fleet in the harbor
I yesterday. It was caused by an order from
! the   custom   department   that   every
' decked in boat must immediately comply
with the law and have ita name and
! hailing port on bow and stern.    The
penalty for lack of these is $400.
I    Yesterday sign writers, stencils and
| paint brushes were in great demand and
[ the sign utensils litter the floats.   The
j owners of such craft as possessed short
names considered themselves lucky while
those with long fancy ones proceeded to
abbreviate them,  while those  without
names tied themselves to the dictionary.
Later in the day several puzzled
looking salts were seen trying to decipher
names put on with a stencil and readable
only with a mirror. One well known boat
surprised everybody by claiming to
belong to New Zealand. Spokeshoot
also appeared as a hailing port although
not on the registry.
An official says the reason for the
strict enforcing of the law now is because several American power >boats
are coming into these waters and it is
necessary to distinguish them.
An ordinary gas jet consumes as
much oxygen as five persons.
Weighing less than 50 pounds, an
electrically driven machine has been
invented for scrubbing floors.

$200,000.
Seattle, .Sept. 14.���The Pacific Coast
company, of which the Columbia &
Puget Sound Railroad company and the
Pacific Coast Steamship company are
subsidiary concerns, has commenced
work on what is to be one of the largest and most important improvements
on the Seattle water front. The company will build a concrete bulkhead
from the north side of pier A south to
connect with the concrete bulkhead
which now runs in- front of pier D and
parallel with Railroad avenue, fill in
the whole area on a level with the avenue and pave it with asphalt. This will
be the first paving of any kind on the
waterfront. The entire cost will be
upwards   of  $200,000.
HARNESSING   THE   WIND
Easier   Than   Using   Solar   Energy
Saya Scientist at Convention
Sheffield, Sept. 14.���At the meeting
of the British Association, R. A. Fes-
senden of Hamilton outlined the possibilities of harnessing the wind and
sun to produce electrical energy. He
said that the number of windmills
around the coast could give power
enough to run all the railways, factories and electric light stations in
Great Britain. But, he added, amid
laughter, that with solar energy the
country would not do so well.

Considerable excitement broke out
among the passengers on the Camosun
about luncheon time on Thursday,
which was brought to a climax by the
announcement that a child had been
born on the boat. The mother is a
Finnish girl of about sixteen,bound for
Alert Bay. Fortunately there was a
trained nurse on board and the mother
and child had careful attention until
they were placed in the doctor's care
at the girl's destination.
The incident was duly entered in the
ship's log and by the passengers the boy
was informally christened Camosun.
The passengers also got up a subscription for the boy, and had the pleasure of
sending to the mother the sum of $62.50.
RELIEVES  STEAMERS
Freight Now Going By Rail As Far
As Sixty-two Mile
The east bound freight train on the
Grand Trunk Pacific pulls out at seven
o'clock every morning now. It carries
only freight for the contractors and it
will have as much as it can do to get
in all the necessary winter supplies for
the various camps. There is now about
four thousand five hundred tons of
supplies to be shipped and with the low
stage of water this was too much for the
boats to handle.
The freight train runs to Sixty-two
mile, where a siding has been put in.
It is reshipped on the boats and taken
to its destination. The saving of this
sixty-two miles of steaming, which
means two days, enables the boats to
handle more, and there is now little
doubt that all the supplies will reach
their destination before they are actually
required. The boats will therefore not
make regular trips to Prince Rupert in
future.

MAY FLOOR
ROOSEVELT
HEARST  DESIRES TO  FORM  AN
ALLIANCE WITH HIM
Ottawa,   Sept   11.���The   greatest   of
modern   utilities   is   undoubtedly   the
post office.   The lowering of the charges
to two cents a letter for all parts of Canada, the United States and the British
empire, and to one cent a letter where
the letter  is   delivered   in   the   same
place in which it is posted, have put
it at the service of every person.    No
person  pleads  the  cost  of  a   postage
stamp as a reason  why he does not
write a letter.   Indeed, the department
in its efforts to make the post office
popular has brought on itself a mass
of correspondence,   which  it  is  sometimes overtaxed to handle as expeditiously as it requires, and it has had to
look about for devices to assist it in
its work.     The selling of its  postage
stamps to meet the exacting demands
of a public  who are peremptory in regard to its postal service has for some
time been a vexing problem.    But the
solution  has  been  found.     For  some
years past experiments have been made
in   stamp   vending   machines,    which
would   deliver   stamps    automatically
when the proper postage was paid.   Mr.
Lemieux,   the   postmaster-general,   has
been following these experiments with
interest, but until recently the results
have not been such as would warrant
the post office in embarking on a scheme
of this kind.
Now, however, a machine has been
perfected, which has been submitted to
exhaustive tests, with results so good
as to give the postmaster-general reason to believe that what he has been
looking for has been accomplished.
One   of   these   machines   has   been
placed in the House of Commons, another is in Threadneedle street, near   the
Bank of England, and at what is probably the most crowded square tn tbe
world.    The tests were so satisfactory
that the British post office has ordered
a number of these machines for use
in the principal post offices in London
and in the leading towns of the kingdom.
The postmaster-general has ordered
fi'ty of these machines, and by way of
satisfying  himself  as to whether  the
machines  wil   meet  the   demand   in
Canada, which he anticipates, is having them erected at central points in
Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg.     With these machines at fixed
Places which a person comes to know
in the same way as he knows the location of the letter box at which he will
P��8t his letter, he is relieved of his
anxiety as to getting stamps.   His letters are stamped and posted, and off
his mind.
The machine is simplicity itself and
can be replenished practically without
cost. In England hey estimate that a
machine seUing $10 worth of stamps a
day or over $8,000 a year can be loaded
at an expenditure of not more than two
hours each year.
The machine iB simple, absolutely
automatic and costs the department
nothing except the small fraction of
^e required for reloading. It can
pe fixed on pillar boxes, in halls of
"otels, flaf, country houses, railway
stations, shops, public buildings, theatres
m��l steamers, seaside places of amusement, and other places where stamps
are re('ulred-   The machine is superior

Sir Wilfrid Laurier Speaks To Twenty

Montreal, Sept. 9.���Twenty thousand

The papal legate, Cardinal Vannutelli,
presided.
In opening the meeting Archbishop
Bruchesi declared this was the first
time since the formation of the Eucharistic congress that the leader of a government had joined hands with Catholics in honor of the Eucharistic Lord.
His reference was to Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
premier of Canada.
Cardinal Logue was the first speaker. He was followed by Archbishop
Ireland, who was cheered for ten minutes by the French Canadians in the
upper gallaries, who shouted that he
was the "greatest Catholic in the world."
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, speaking in French
said that permanent salutory influences
were bound to be exerted by the Eucharistic congress.

(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 17.���At the Crippen
hearing this morning Inspector Dew
was again called to stand for cross-
examination. He answered Mr. Newton's
questions as briefly as possible. He de-
clared that when he was first put upon
the case he did not intend to arrest
Crippen, although he did not believe
the story then told him by Crippen.
He did not think the woman had been
murdered. Not until he had accepted the
promise of Crippen that he would not
run away, and Crippen broke his word
and the remains were discovered, did he
become imbued with the idea that a
murder had been committed and that
Crippen  was  probably  guilty.
The hearing was at this point adjourned

GERMAN SPY IN COURT
Charged  With  Obtaining  Informa-
Portsmouth    Defences
We have it on very reliable infor-
mation, says the China Critic, that I
final plans have been drafted for converting Port Arthur into a suitable
commercial harbor. The idea is to
cut a wide canal across the isthmus
of Tiger's Tail, and thus create a new
entrance entirely for naval purposes.
Pending the completion' of this cutting, a large wharf will be built in
the West Harbor and the approaches
to it will be dredged. The sum required for the first year's operation
of these works is one and a half million yen. This is not a new idea, by
any means, as a similar proposition
was advanced during Russia's occupation of the Old Chinese naval port.
GEORGIAN BAY PROJECT
Workmen  Are Busy  Now With  the
Roof of the Building
Influences  Being  Brought  to  Bear
To Make It Government Work
Particularly rapid  progress is  being
made with the work of erection of the
General   Hospital,   and   the   building,
when complete will be a credit to Prince
Rupert.     Already the contractors  are
engaged in putting up the roof frames,
and the building which a few pessimists
some time ago were heard to say would
not  be  finished  this  year looks  very
well   certain  of  being  completed   and
ready for service as promised in December.    No one, certainly, is anxious
that the new hospital should ever be
the busiest institution in the busy city
of Prince Rupert, but to have it there
ready to render aid to the sick and injured who must inevitably be sooner
or later with a rapidly growing community like ours, is a comfort and an
assett  in the city's economy.
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, Sept. 15.���Influences are

as a state undertaking. It s pleaded
that the revenue from the development

As the Grand Trunk railroad advances
in to the interior of B. C. from both
Prince Rupert and Edmonton it is
certain that many new towns will be
located along the right of way. What
towns is the question will be permanent
ones?
This is hard to say at present as the
Grand Trunk have as yet said nothing
definite. They to a great extent will
necessarily control the situation.
Among those towns already commenced two however look very promising.   They are .Sealey and Fort George.
While Sealey has been started long
after Fort George it is certainly going
ahead very rapidly.
It is one of the few towns to which a
station has been promised. It is the
head quarters of Foley, Welch and
Stewart. It is the pay station of Foley,
Welch and Stewart, It is in the center
of one of the richest mineral countries
in B. C. It is the distributing point
for the well known Bulkley Valley. It
is now the most prominent port on the
Skeena.
It is level, has a splendid water supply
and one and all has every chance of
being the big town of the Skeena River
and Bulkley Districts.

rear of Currie's Shoe Shop. os-is
Considerable excitement broke out
among the passengers on the Camosun
about luncheon time on Thursday,
which was brought to a climax by the
announcement that a child had been
born on the boat. The mother is a
Finnish girl of about sixteen.bound for
Alert Bay. Fortunately there was a
trained nurse on board and the mother
and child had careful attention until
they were placed in the doctor's care
at the girl's destination.
The incident was duly entered in the
ship's log and by the passengers the boy
was informally christened Camosun.
The passengers also got up a subscription for the boy, and had the pleasure of
sending to the mother the sum of $62.50.
RELIEVES  STEAMERS
Freight Now Going By Rail As Far
As Sixty-two Mile
The east bound freight train on the
Grand Trunk Pacific pulls out at seven
o'clock every morning now. It carries
only freight for the contractors and it
will have as much as it can do to get
in all the necessary winter supplies for
the various camps. There is now about
four thousand five hundred tons of
supplies to be shipped and with the low
stage of water this was too much for the
boats to handle.
The freight train runs to Sixty-two
mile, where a siding has been put in.
It is reshipped on the boats and taken
to its destination. The saving of this
sixty-two miles of steaming, which
means two days, enables the boats to
handle more, and there is now little
doubt that all the supplies will reach
their destination before they are actually
required. The boats will therefore not
make regular trips to Prince Rupert in
future.

MAY FLOOR
ROOSEVELT
HEARST  DESIRES  TO  FORM  AN
ALLIANCE WITH HIM
Ottawa,  Sept   11.���The   greatest   of
modern   utilities   is   undoubtedly   the
post office.  The lowering of the charges
to two cents a letter for all parts of Canada, the United States and the British
empire, and to one cent a letter where
the letter  is   delivered   in  the  same
place in which it is posted, have put
it at the service of every person.    Nol
person pleads  the  cost  of  a  postage
stamp as a reason  why  he does not
write a letter.   Indeed, the department
in its efforts to make the post office
popular has brought on itself a mass
of correspondence,   which  it  is  sometimes overtaxed to  handle as expeditiously as it requires, and it has had to
look about for devices to assist it in
its work.    The selling of its postage
stamps to meet the exacting demands
of a public  who are peremptory in regard to its postal service has for some
time been a vexing problem.   But the
solution  has  been  found.     For  some
years past experiments have been made
in   stamp   vending   machines,   which
would   deliver   stamps    automatically
when the proper postage was paid.   Mr.
Lemieux,   the   postmaster-general,   has
been following these experiments with
interest, but until recently the results
have not been such as would warrant
the post office in embarking on a scheme
of this kind.
Now, however, a machine has been
perfected, which has been submitted to
exhaustive tests, with results so good
as to give the postmaster-general reason to believe that what he has been
looking for has been accomplished.
One   of   these   machines   has   been
placed in the House of Commons, another is in Threadneedle street, near   the
Bank of England, and at what is probably the most crowded square in the
world.   The tests were so satisfactory
that the British post office has ordered
a number of these machines for use
in the principal post offices in London
and in the leading towns of the kingdom.
The postmaster-general has ordered
fifty of these machines, and by way of
satisfying  himself  as to whether  the
machines  wil   meet   the   demand   in
Canada, which he anticipates, is having them erected at central points in
Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg-    With these machines at  fixed
places which a person comes to know
in the same way as he knows the location of the letter box at which he will
P��t his letter, he is relieved  of his
anxiety as to getting stamps.   His letters are stamped and posted, and off
his mind.
The machine is simplicity itself and
can be replenished practically without
cost. In England hey estimate that a
machine selling $10 worth of stamps a
day or over $8,000 a year can be loaded
at an expenditure of not more than two
hours each year.
The machine is simple, absolutely
automatic and costs the department
nothing except the small fraction  of
\TerreqUired ,or ^loading. It can

Montreal, aSept. 9.���Twenty thousand

meeting of the Eucharistic congress.
The papal legate, Cardinal Vannutelli,
presided.
In opening the meeting Archbishop
Bruchesi declared this was the first
time since the formation of the Eucharistic congress that the leader of a government had joined hands with Catholics in honor of the Eucharistic Lord.
His reference was to Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
premier of Canada.
Cardinal Logue was the first speaker. He was followed by Archbishop
Ireland, who was cheered for ten minutes by the French Canadians in the
upper gallaries, who shouted that he
was the "greatest Catholic in the world."
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, speaking in French
said that permanent salutory influences
were bound to be exerted by the Eucharistic congress.

He did not think the woman had been
murdered. Not until he had accepted the
promise of Crippen that he would not
run away, and Crippen broke his word
and the remains were discovered, did he
become imbued with the idea that a
murder had been committed and that
Crippen was probably  guilty.

EXPENSIVE NECKLACE
We have it on very reliable infor- I
mation, says the China Critic, that
final plans have been drafted for converting Port Arthur into a suitable
commercial harbor. The idea is to
cut a wide canal across the isthmus
of Tiger's Tail, and thus create a new
entrance entirely for naval purposes.
Pending the completion' of this cutting, a large wharf will be built in
the West Harbor and the approaches
to it will be dredged. The sum required for the first year's operation
of these works is one and a half million yen. This is not a new idea, by
any means, as a similar proposition
was advanced during Russia's occupation of the Old Chinese naval port.

that the new hospital should ever be
the busiest institution in the busy city
of Prince Rupert, but to have it there
ready to render aid to the sick and injured who must inevitably be sooner

SHERIFF EILBECK  OF' DAWSON
PAYS HIS FINE
Game Old Sports Kills Off Ducks
Raised By Mounted Police At
Barracks and Presents Birds to
The Commissioner.
Dawson,���Daw;onites have ,;*. lately-
been mjoying a jok at the expense
of the sheriff of the Yukom. t seems
that duck hunting is one of the sheriff's
favorite pastimes, and that while
wending his way to the office one morning not long ago, while yet the Yukon
game law said, "Thou shalt not kill"
the festive duck, he spied a beautiful
flock of green winged teal disporting
themselves in the slough that runs by
the police barracks.
Forgetting for the moment game laws,
city limits, police and all other barriers with the call of the wild upon
him, the sheriff quickly procured a
shotgun and opened up a broadside to
the astonishment of the neighbors as
well as of the ducks. They were beautifully behaved ducks and not at all
shy, consequently the bag was heavy.
Then appeared upon the scene those
guardians of the rights of men and
ducks, the royal northwest mounted police. They wanted those ducks, and
why wouldn't they? Those ducklets
were handfed. They had been hatched
in the slough and the police had watched over them all summer, guarding
them from stonethrowing boys and
prowling dogs, only to have them
snatched away by the last person it
might have been expected of the high
sheriff of the Yukon.
Always swift on the trail of the
transgressor, the police proceeded sans
ceremonie to possess themselves of the
remains of their lamented feathered
pets at the hands of no less a personage than the commissioner f the Yukon, at whose feet the official nimrod
had laid them as trophie of hi prowess
in the chase, and bore them o th hall
of justice when e the sheriff was. tr icht-
way summoned on two accusations
one of shooting ducks out of season, the
oth r of discharging firearms within
the limits of the ci y of Dawson.
Confronted with the bodies of the
poor little victims of the deed lying
stark and cold upon the magristrate's
desk, what could the accused do but
acknowledge his guilt? Then it was
that justice was tempered with mercy
and instead of imposing a penalty of
upwards of $100, Mr. Justice Dugas exacted payment from the high sheriff
of $5 and costs, and, as his lordship
put it, in order that future good behav-'
ior might be insured, the second charge
was allowed to remain in abeyance and
the sheriff went forth to freedom a
sadder and wiser man.

SILVER CUP MINES
LIMITED
We are authorized to accept subscriptions at 12 1-2 cents per
share for 100,000 shares Treasury Stock of SILVER CUP MINES
COMPANY LIMITED.
SILVER CUP MINES LIMITED is neither a new nor a speculative enterprise. It is a well known established company operating an extensive mining property near Hazelton, B. C. The management consisting of worthy and reliable business men of this
city whose records and executive ability are well known, assures
a conservstive business administration,
At no time in the history of the mining properties owned by
Company have they looked so well in a mining way, has development work been in such a forward state, have the ore showings
been so good. The high hopes which the management entertained
in the past are all entertained now.
Everything that has happened regarding the development of the
properties from a mining or a company standpoint has redoubled
their hopes and their ambitions.
As everything consistent with economical management is being
done to make SILVER CUP MINES LIMITED a dividend paying
property at the earliest possible date, we believe an early interview with any officer or director of the company will prove of
mutual benefit.   As it is certain that a closer knowledge of the
property holdings and rich discoveries will convince anyone of the
advantage of investing in this issue of stock, a reasonable amount
of which is almost sure to make early purchasers rich in propor-
tion to their holdings.
The small amount of stock offered at 12 1-2 cents is being
taken up rapidly by local sales and mail orders. We desire to distribute these shares among as many investors as possible, therefore
if you are not prepared to buy a big block of this stock, buy a
small block. Under any and all conditions become interested in
this splendid property. The Treasury fund is fast growing into
proportions that will enable the company to proceed on a scale of
development that is calculated to add great value to the shares.
a*
As all matters pertaining to the development of the company's
holdings are going forward aggressively, we cannot too strongly
advise you to secure an interest in the SILVER CUP MINES CO.
LIMITED at the earliest possible moment.
Full particulars of the company, its organization, properties
and development will be furnished upon application by person or
letter.
Judging by the demand for these shares, and the true merit
of this proposal, we suggest to those interested, immediate action
before the issue is fully subscribed.
