was wrecked outright today by the force
of an explosion. Sixteen people were
killed at ones and about twenty injured. Night Editor Harvey is among
the dead. He was severely injured and
carried to the hospital, where he died an

and the crowd which the sound of the
explosion had gathered saw several of the
inmates of the building fall into the
flames.
The Times has for a long time been
the organ of the open shop and has led
in the fight against organized labor, and
the explosion is believed to be attributable to the actions of sympathizers of the
unions. The police saw some men running down the lane immediately following the explosion and are working
upon this clue.
The Times has an auxiliary plant and
will publish today as usual.

Canoe Upset in Shawatlan's Lake,
Engineer Agnew and Dave Blane
Having ��� Narrow Escape���Efforts
to Recover Bodies.
The news has reached the city of a
distressing double drowning fatility on
Shawatlans Lake last night. The names
of the two men who lost their lives are:
Alexander ("Jock") Allen, and Harry
Gilroy.
Both men were members of A. A.
Agnew's survey party engaged in the
work in connection with the permanent
city water supply from Woodworth
Lakes, and the accident occurred when
they were returning in the evening from
their work, at between five and six
o'clock yesterday.
News of the fatality was brought
to the city last night by H. Tooker
who returned almost immediately to
the scene of the accident where efforts
have been continually kept up for the
recovery of the bodies.
Details of the accident to hand as
yet are meagre, but it seems that the
men had been engaged in sounding operations during the day. They were
returning to camp in their canoe on
board of which were A. Agnew, David
Blane, and the two who were drowned.
The canoe was pretty heavily freighted
but the lake was as smooth as glass
when the party started for the camp.
About half way over the lake however,
the water roughened a bit, and Mr.
Agnew advised the party to get nearer
the shore where the water was sheltered.
It seems that in turning the canoe to
make for the sheltered water the craft
somehow upset, and its occupants were
all struggling in an instant in the water
which at this point is exceedingly deep.
A. Agnew made a heroic effort to
save the life of Harry Allen who came up
by the overturned canoe near which
Agnew' was swimming. Agnew was
seized and clutched closely by Allen but
managed to lift him up to the canoe.
Allen, however, seems to have slipped
clear over the canoe and sank before
Agnew could grab him again.
Dave Blane contrived to get hold of
the canoe, and save himself, but Gilroy
seems to have sunk speedily without
rising anywhere in sight of his comrades
who strove to effect the rescue.   With
EIGHTY MILES AN HOUR
Record Breaking Speed With  Fast
Trains on Canadian Division
(Special to the Optimist)
Windsor, Ont., Oct. 1.���The Michigan

Windsor, on the Canadian Southern
division, one hundred and thirteen
miles in ninety-two minutes. The
average for the run figures just eighty
miles' vln hour, but part of the distance
was negotiated at a rate of ninety-eight
miles an hour.
SOCALISTS TO BLAME
Organized   the   Street   Car   Strike
Which Was Inaugurated Today
(Special to the Optimist)
Warsaw, Poland, Oct. 1.���It has been
conclusively proven that the Socialist
organized the street car strike which was
inaugurated this morning. The men
demand a minimum of $2 per day and
the repeal of a system of fines which
they declare to be oppressive.
The police managed to capture the
aSoealist leader presumed to be responsible
for the strike and there have been no
disturbances.
JOURNALISTS IN STRIKE
Appeal  for  Redress for  Attack on
Them Made by Police Officers
CONTINUED ON   PACE 4
(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, Oct. 1. Herr von Kagow has
answered the appeals for redress made by
the British and American newspaper
correspondents who were hustled out of
the striking disturbances by the police
and treated with indignities. The chief
in his reply claims that the police were
carrying on their duty and he therefore
declines to take any action against
them. He says the correspondents acted
courageously but they were acting in
defiance of police regulations in entering
the riotous crowd.
THE AMERICAN CAMORRA
Headquarters of the Band Said to
Have Been Disclosed in Confession
(Special to the Optimist)
Cincinnati, Oct. 1.���Detectives engaged in the investigation of the murder

Winnipeg, Sept. 27.���The Telegram
publishes a special from Edmonton
regarding rumors persistent in the
Alberta capital for the past two years
to the effect that Hon. Frank Oliver
is non persona grata with Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and that there have been
several clashes between the Premier
and his lieutenant, two being specified.
The minister of the interior is said
to have strongly, but vainly, opposed
the appointment of the Premier's compatriot and former law partner, Mr.
Noel, to the District Court bench,
and also the appointment of Mr. Justice
Beck.
Hon. Mr. Oliver is said to have
stated to a friend in Edmonton recently, when questioned regarding the
rumor, that he would not accept an
appointment to the Railway Commission.
MAY   GET   ANOTHER   BANK
General Manager of Home Bank of
' Canada I* Coming
Vancouver, Sept. 27.���Branches of the
Home Bank of Canada with head office
in Toronto may be established in Vancouver and other British Columbia
cities. Lieut.-Col. James Mason, general manager of the bank, is inttVancouver
looking over the field. He has already
inspected   the   bank's   half   score   of
branches in the prairie provinces as well
as the branch at Fernie in the Crow's
Nest Pass District. The colonel will
also visit Victoria and Prince Rupert.
"I am out here looking into conditions with a view to considering the
question of opening new branches.
The wonderful development of the
West, including British Columbia, has
naturally occupied the attention of
Eastern bankers. The whole trip thus
far has been nothing but a series of
revelations," said the colonel to The
Province at the Hotel Vancouver today.
The Home Bank of Canada has an
authorized capital of $2,000,000 and
last year had it paid up to the extent
of $902,000, earning a dividend of 6
per cent, and a reserve of $300,000.
GROWTH OF BANKING
Optimistic View of What Prince Rupert Will Shortly Experience
E. Stonham was saying good bye to
a large number of friends in the Inn
lobby last night, when one of them
observed that the manager of the Home
Bank of Canada was on his way here to
pick out a site for a branch of that
institution.
"But there are others," responded Mr.
Stonham. "I have no doubt I shall see
more banks here every time I come to
see you. There will probably be fifteen
or sixteen banks established here during
the next two or three years. Your
growth is certain to be rapid from now

the organ of the open shop and has led
in the fight against organized labor, and
the explosion is believed to be attributable to the actions of sympathizers of the
unions. The police saw some men running down the lane immediately following the explosion and are working
upon this clue.
The Times has an auxiliary plant and
will publish today as usual.
Los Angeles, Oct. 1.���A report has
reached here, which has not yet been
confirmed that General Harrison Grey
Otis, the owner of the Times, died on the
train en route from Mexico, as a result
of shock when he was informed of the
destruction of the Times building by an
explosion.
WELL KNOWN
MEN DROWNED
HARRY GILROY AND  A.   ALLEN
LOSE THEIR LIVES
Estancia Partially Destroyed
Santa Fe, N. M., Oct. 1.���(Special)
Fire last night almost destroyed the
town of Estancia, which is the county
seat of Torrence, eighty miles south of
here. Most of the business section, the
court house and a number of residences
were completely destroyed. This is the
second fire which has visited the town
in two months.
Canoe Upset in Shawatlan's Lake,
Engineer Agnew and Dave Blane
Having a Narrow Eacapc���Efforts
to Recover Bodies.
The news haa reached the city of a
distressing double drowning fatility on
Shawatlans Lake last night. The names
of the two men who lost their lives are:
Alexander ("Jock") Allen, and Harry
Gilroy.
Both men were members of A. A.
Agnew's survey party engaged in the
work in connection with the permanent
city water supply from Woodworth
Lakes, and the accident occurred when
they were returning in the evening from
their work, at between five and six
o'clock yesterday.
News of the fatality was brought
to the city last night by H. Tooker
who returned almost immediately to
the scene of the accident where efforts
have been continually kept up for the
recovery of the bodies.
Details of the accident to hand as
yet are meagre, but it seems that the
men had been engaged in sounding operations during the day. They were
returning to camp in their canoe on
board of which were A. Agnew, David
Blane, and the two who were drowned.
The canoe was pretty heavily freighted
but the lake was as smooth as glass
when the party started for the camp.
About half way over the lake however,
the water roughened a bit, and Mr.
Agnew advised the party to get nearer
the shore where the water was sheltered.
It seems that in turning the canoe to
make for the sheltered water the craft
somehow upset, and its occupants were
all struggling in an instant in the water
which at this point is exceedingly deep.
A. Agnew made a heroic effort to
save the life of Harry Allen who came up
by the overturned canoe near which
Agnew' was swimming. Agnew was
seized and clutched closely by Allen but
managed to lift him up to the canoe.
Allen, however, seems to have slipped
clear over the canoe and sank before
Agnew could grab him again.
Dave Blane contrived to get hold of
the canoe, and save himself, but Gilroy
seems to have sunk speedily without
rising anywhere in sight of his comrades
who strove to effect the rescue.   With

Windsor, Ont., Oct. 1.���The Michigan

the distance between St. Thomas and
Windsor, on the Canadian Southern

miles Oi hour, but part of the distance
was negotiated at a rate of ninety-eight
miles an hour.
SOCALISTS TO BLAME
Organized   the   Street   Car   Strike
Which Was Inaugurated Today
(Special to the Optimist)
Warsaw, Poland, Oct. 1.���It has been
conclusively proven that the Socialist
organized the street car strike which was
inaugurated this morning. The men
demand a minimum of $2 per day and
the repeal of a system of fines which
they declare to be oppressive.
The police managed to capture the
Soealist leader presumed to be responsible
for the strike and there have been no
disturbances.

Appeal  for  Redress  for  Attack  on

(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, Oct. 1.���Herr von Kagow has
answered the appeals for redress made by
the British and American newspaper
correspondents who were hustled out of
the striking disturbances by the police
and treated with indignities. The chief
in his reply claims that the police were
carrying on their duty and he therefore
declines to take any action against
them. He says ihe correspondents acted
courageously but they were acting in
defiance of police regulations in entering
the riotous crowd.
THE AMERICAN CAMORRA
Headquarters of the Band Said to

Bout ThU Month
Kansas City, Mo., !3ept. 25.���Battling Nelson and Monte Dale were today matched to fight ten rounds here
on the night of October. This bout
will be the first battle of the year for
the Grand Avenue Athletic Club.
Dale is a husky youngster who
fought several battles in the West.
Nelson is pleased with the opponent
selected for him. This is his first fight
since he was defeated by Ad. Wolgast,
and he is anxious to get a line on his
ability after a prolonged fast. The
fighters will not attempt to make the
lightweight limit. Nelson weighs 157
pounds and he does not want to train
down too fine for a short fight. Dale
is at his best at 135 pounds.

Will'Be Sent Back to Nome to Be
Tried With Four Other* for Robbi-

Their Upturned Trouaera.
Seatlte, Sept. 28.���Marius Johansen,
22 yean old, a Norwegian miner, was
arrested in a rooming house at Interbay
yesterday by J. F. Warren, special federal agent for the Second Alaska district,
and City Detectives James Bryne and
Charles Phillips, and is held at the city
jail, accused of implication in tbe theft
of $14,346 in gold from the sluice boxes of
the Pioneer Mining Company at Nome.
Word was received here yesterday
morning of the arrest in Nome of four
more men believed to be implicated in
the sluice box robbery.
Johansen will be returned to Alaska
zs an accomplice of John Tyberg,
who was arrested at the Diller hotel last
Friday morning and is now held at the
county jail.
Tyberg and Johansen will be jointly
charged with the robbery of the sluice
boxes of the Pioneer Mining Company.
Last night they said they would not
oppose extradition to Alaska, and Special Agent Warren will probably leave
for the North with his prisoners
today.
Pinkerton detectives had Johansen
under surveillance on the theory that
he and Tyberg carried the yellow nuggets and dust from the diggings in
small quantities in the upturned bottoms of their trousers.
There are conflicting stories as to
whether Tyberg has confessed. Johansen last night stoutly maintained he
was innocent.
Johansen's room at Interbay was
searched, but no trace of the missing
gold was found.

OUR LAND TIED UP
One of the relics of feudalism which is doing much to delay and hinder the
development of British Columbia, and particularly this new scetion, is the monoply
of the professions in the province. The one which is doing most harm is that of
the land surveyors. Under existing laws the land surveyors of the province have
authority and refuse to allow any surveyor who has not served several years' appren-
ticehip in the province permission to work at his profession. It means that qualified
men cannot take a job unless they belong to the provincial professional monoply
which is very difficult to enter. The argument of qualification does not even hold
good as many of the survey jobs are done by apprentices and assistants. In this
country the survey of land costs much more than the land itself and frequently
the land purchaser has to go hundreds of miles for a surveyor. It needs no argument to show the injustice that is worked upon the prospective settler. It is keeping
the rancher off the soil. Granting to any class of workmen, either professional or
unprofessional.the right to monopolize their trade in a province is one of the most
unjust and undemocratic laws in our constitution.
Second Avenue is doing fairly well, thamc you!
Yesterday it was the press and the Board of Trade who were responsible. Today
it is the Grand Trunk who put the Bank of Montreal up to the mean trick. According to the latest theory the city is being squeezed between the powers of two great
corporations, but who placed the city in the pinchers?
The press are responsible for many things, and according to the argument
of the City Council the newspapers have a deal more influence than the aldermanic
body, but the press would not have had the courage to make a one-sided agreement
with a bank for the loan of a million dollars.
The Bank of Montreal must look upon Pr ince Rupert as easy money.  The bank
can draw six per cent, on all loans and then shut the city off whenever they choose.

Blane and Agnew got ashore and remained all night endeavoring to recover
the bodies of Allen and Gilroy.
This morning Colonel Davis, the city
engineer, proceeded by special launch
to Shawatlans Lake to assist in the task,
and dynamite is to be used in the hope
that by blasting near the scene of the
disaster the bodies may be brought to
the surface.
Both the drowned men were old
timers   of   Prince   Rupert,   and   very
popular indeed in the city.
Harry Gilroy was a native of Regina
and had been here since the Grand Trunk
Pacific commenced operations. He was
with the G. T. P. staff as a transitman,
and was similarly employed by the city.
A young man of splendid physique, he
went out with the two Canadian contingents to South Africa during the
war, and saw much active service. He
was also engaged for two years on the
Alaska Boundary Survey.
His position as President of
Wanderers' Club in this city and

Prince Rupert was a native of Scotland.
He also was an old timer having been out
here in the early stages of the city's
progress. He was engaged in the Grand
Trunk and Stewart surveys in this
district, and had also seen service during
the South African war as he went out
with the Seaforth Highlanders. Two
years ago he won the local sculling
championship. He was a splendidly
built young man, and exceedingly popular in Prince Rupert.
All the members of the city staff are
keenly regretful at the news of the loss
of these men whom they knew so intimately. Young Gilroy had intended
to come down to Prince Rupert last
night, it is said, with his comrade Allen.

Berlin, Sept. 28���Germany's naval
ambitions bid fair to plunge her into
the morass of financial, breakdown.
Only a couple of years ago Bhe struggled through severe depression, and by
the aid of increased taxes regained stability.
Now it appears the problem has to
be dealt with over again.
It is rumored that the government intends to introduce a bill providing for
still larger taxation.
According to the figures of the first
five months, it is probable that the
revenue of the present fiscal year will
fall $10,750,000 short of the estimates,
which placed the expenditures at about
30 per cent, less than they proved to
be.
Industrial disputes also form difficulties for the governemnt.
The metal working employers' organization met today and voted to lock
out the organized workmen in the trade
on October 8 unless the striking shipbuilders return to work before that
day. It is estimated that 300,000 workmen will be affected.
The general lockout in the shipbuilding industry, which followed local strikes,
has continued for six weeks.

and sound 'judgment. Invest>
ment in Silver Cup shares is a
conservative investment and has
great speculative possibilities.
The aggressive development of
the immense ore bodies disclosed
should make the investment, at
the present price of 12 1-2 cents
per share, one of the greatest in
the mining history of British
Columbia. The special treasury
issue of one hundred thousand
shares at 12 1-2 cento per share

HUDSON BAY
MOUNTAIN MINES
WELL KNOWN MINING  EXPERT
DESCRIBES THEM.
R. G. Steele is Taking Samples of
Ore and Maps of District to London to Interest British Capital
in  Development Work.
Another Aviator  Killed.
Berlin, Oct. 1.���(Special)���A telegram
from Mulhausen, Germany, states that
Aviator Frohlman was last night dashed
down into the crowd from a height of
one hundred feet. He died later from
the injuries received.
Raid on  Counterfeiters
Tacoma, Oct. 1.���(Special)���False metal enough to make half a million dollars
worth of spurious gold pieces was taken
in a raid on a counterfeiters' den here
late last night. Three ex-convicts were
arrested.
The fine display of mineral ore samples
which R. G. Steele, the well-known
mining engineer, brought back with him
from the Hudson Bay Mountain properties which he has been investigating
for M. M. Stephens and other business
men of the city.are to be taken to London by him in the course of a few days.
Mr. Steele who is as well known in
mining circles in the British metropolis
as he is throughout the mining districts
of the world, is going to London specially
in connection with these Hudson Bay
Mountain mines.
The properties are situated in the
Bulkley Valley twelve miles from Mor-
ristown, and about forty miles from
Hazelton. The present trail by which
they are reached, takes a wide detour,
but about two miles from the lake, nine
miles or so along the old trail from
Morristown, a new trail is projected to go
direct to,he properties. The new trail
crosses the line' of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway at a point where a
station and sidings are planned, and
this point is only two miles from the
Hudson Bay Mountain. By a gravitation tram line the ore can be dropped
right on to the railway from the mines;
and these properties are the nearest
to the railway line in the whole district.
The provincial government has promised
a grant of $1000 towards the completion
of the new trail which shortens the
distance to the properties by twelve
miles, as the old trail leads into the
divide and on towards the Copper
River.
The properties are situated above
the timber line in the neighborhood of
the group of lakes and glaciers on the
Hudson Bay Mountain which feed the
Toboggan Creek crossed by the new
trail.
A talk with Mr. Steele regarding the
resources of these mines brings out the
fact that in them he has located a
magnificent series of properties.
The samples of ore taken from the
Silver Creek group show -first a leaded
and oxidized iron capping, the vein then
goes down through cube galena to
granite and lime. This carries the cut
down 390 feet altogether and there is
another 390 feet below which can be
reached by a steep tunnel. With very
little tunnelling 700 feet of backs can be
obtained.
The assay values from this claim
range from $74.56 to $24 per ton. There
are five properties in the group, viz.:
the Iron Mask, Iron Vault, Copper
Queen, Vananda, and Texada. These
claims extend for half a mile along the
mountain side, and the width of the
reefs running through them are from
four to twenty-four feet. All these
claims have been tested with open cuts
right along the three ledges, and the
ore samples are the finest Mr. Steele has
seen in the course of a world wide
mining experience.
Another splendid series of properties
in the same mountain has been in
vestigated by R. G. Steele, and includes
the Poppy, Dicky, and Victoria group,
giving copper, gold, and silver ores the
assay values of which run to $120 per
ton. The testing has been done so far
by surface cuts. There are two open
cuts in the Victoria property.
No work has yet been done in the
Hazelton, Fairview and Dixey group
staked by Mr. Steele, but a rough
sample broken off the top of the ledge
by Mr. Steele shows native silver
sticking out everywhere, and gives
assay values at $127.63 to the ton.
The Hilltop, Silver King, and Mountain View group staked this year by Mr.
Steele are right in line with these properties. No workings have as yet been
opened on this group.
Adjoining these are the Clarion and
High Ore groups with ledges 75 feet
wide which run into the previously
named group. Mr. Steele has with him
numbers of rich samples of ore assaying
from $30 to $100 per ton from these
groups.
On the Babine Range R. G. Steele
has been investigating also a series of
eight claims which promise excellently,
and has with him samples from these
of very high grade.
To look over the set of ore samples
with Mr. Steele is to realize vividly the
magnificent resources of the district
he is opening up to the world. They
are all heavy with ore; native silver,
wire silver and argenite plentifully
present. Argenite show liberally in the
samples taken from the Fairview and
Dixey group on the Hudson Bay Mountain, and the Babine Range ores are
of splendidly high grade.
"In general I am of the opinion," says
Mr. Steele, "that this is the finest
comer of the earth for mining interests
that is left in the English speaking
world. To approach it in value of
resources in sight we would have to go
to South America or Brazil. The reefs
are strong and continuous, and there is
absolutely no indication to lead us to
imagine for a moment that we have
not got here the finest group of producers
we have ever come across. This is not
merely my own opinion: it is also that
of all the other mining men of experience
who have been in this district.
"The effect of the railway in getting
our ore out will be of tremendous importance. At present we,, pan only
carry on our mining operations on a
small and insignificant scale���nothing
like an extent worthy of the values of
the properties. No serious mining can
be contemplated until the rails are
laid so that we can get machinery, rock
drills, air compressors, etc., up to the
scene of the work.
"But don't think for a moment that
there is not plenty to be done to make
preparations for the machinery. The
new trail will be completed as soon as
possible. I have talked over the matter
with Mr. Manson M. P., and he has
practically promised that the $1000
from the government shall be provided
without delay. Plans and sketches of
the new trail have been handed to Mr.
Williscroft the road superintendent at
Hazelton, and will be laid before the
authorities at once. There can be no
doubt that the road will be ready in
time for us in the spring. When the
new trail is made we shall have good
access to the whole hills and preliminary
mining can be carried on until the
railway is through.
"For my forthcoming trip to London,
England, we are preparing a set of maps
and plans of the properties carefully,
as none so far exist. With these and the
samples of the ore here, I am going to
London with the idea and hope of
interesting British capital in our great
new mining country."
The samples of ore are at present on
view in the premises of M. M. Stephens
& Co. and Mr. Stephens is at all times
pleased to show them to those interested.
Mr. Steele expects to leave for London
early next week.

as "Rue Edouard VII." And Parisians believe that London will reciprocate by naming a street in that city
after the great Napoleon or some
useful man���some one who used his

Victoria, Sept. 27.���Messrs. Bullen, of
the B. C. Marine Railway company at
Esquimalt, have submitted plans to the
Minister of Public Works at Ottawa for
a graving dock to be built at Esquimalt
at an approximate cost of $3,000,000.
The Esquimalt company is applying
for the government subsidy for dry-
docks, an annual payment of three
and a half per cent, on the cost for a
period of twenty-five years. It is understood that a large British shipbuilding firm is associated with the
Esquimalt company in the enterprise,
which will, it iB understood, be part
of a shipbuilding enterprise planned
for Esquimalt in view pf the anticipated naval construction for the Pacific
cruisers of the Canadian navy.
G. T. P.  Yarda  Expanding a Little
Work is being begun by Messrs. Ross

in the G. T. P. yards, and there is a
probability that a number of extra men
will be employed on the job. This is
part of the work of expansion in the new
yards which is expected will be carried on
shortly to a much greater extent. The
present new work on this "Y" says Mr.
McLeod, of Messrs. Foley, Welch t
Stewart, is not of as much importance as
what is yet ahead.

When above .he Big Canyon we pass
to some extent beyond the ranges of
P mountains near  th= river  bank.
Considerable flat land is to be seen near
the Indian villages  of  Meanskinisht,
Kitwangah, Andimaul and Kitzeukela.
Thes places, with their totem poles, are
strikingly picturesque as they suddenly
taut into  view   when   the   bteamer
rounds the point in her long struggle
upstream.   One thinks what a great
natural defence this bwitt running Skeena
must have been, in tarly times to the
tribes that lived alon^ iu banks.   Not
even the fl-rce Haida, whose enterprise
sometimts  carried   him   hundreds   of
miles to the south, would find the courage
id line his wai ianoe up through the
the riffle, and canyons where he would
be continually harassed by his Tsimpsean
foe.
The country   around   Hazelton   is
asceedingly pretty   epecially   in   the
utumn when the early  frosts  have
touched the trees and turned them into
arson and gold.   The view from the,
high hill behind that place is one not
easy to be forgotten.   The valley of the
Skeena stretching off in front, with the
valley of the Kispiox on the left and
that of the Bulkley on the right, the
little village with its red topped houses,
nestling at the foot of the hill, the deep
green grass patches,   ihe  swift   river
ghdi.g by,  such   intensity   of   color
everywhere���a scene of gorgeous splendor
ud beauty.
Hawlton is simated at the confluence
of the Bukley and Skeena, and the
��ad to Aldermere winds along the
west bank of the former rive? crossing
it at Moricetown. This place is an
Indian settlement named after the famous
missionary Father Morice, who wrote
tt early history of the northern interior
��nd also made one of the first maps of
that country. At this crossing there is
��small canyon and the river has a fall
��a few feet just above the bridge. The
ndians stand on a platfo m over this
w, and hook the salmon as they swim
����t in the eddies, preparatory to
making their heroic leap to surmount
"��fall. This place has doubtless been
one of the great food-getting grounds
'of the Indians from time immemorial.
'ley have also cultivated considerable
m around it. It is interesting to
Zth"the Indian <* ��>e interior is no

"Wis and the pack saddle as a means

a groat ,    , 1S the intention to build
^t trunk road through .the whole
���alley and think it a most excellent
plan.
As one approaches Aldermere the
valley gets wider and we travel through
a rich rolling country that is extremely
pleasant to the eye. Away off on either
hand we see the great white caps of the
distant mountain ranges and we realize
we sre in a land that is not so precipitous
as that near the coast. Before reaching
the above place we pass Lake McClure,
along whose shores stretch many fine
ranches. It is a very fine lake, clear as
crystal and we cannot help but think
that some day it will rival some of the
famous European, lakes in having a
reputation for vivid and brilliant reflections and shadows. Round Lake is
much smaller than McClure but it is
very beautiful.
The farming development that has
already taken place in the Bulkley
Valley is most astonishing. Some farms
are provided with mowers and rakes,
and even binders. Just imagine taking
these machines on pack horses. When
we consider what progress has been
made already in that country, where
it has cost one hundred dollars a ton
to take stuff in, we must certainly conclude that it will be a truly great valley
when the railway is running and when
they can get their supplies in for four
or five dollars a ton.

trip was made to the Hudson's Bay
mountains, where some rich mineral
showings have already been discovered.
This range lies eight or ten miles to the
west of the Bulkley and about fifteen
miles from Aldermere in a northwesterly
direction. It is a small compact group
and has three or four glaciers of singular
beauty. The largest glacier is directly
on the east side and from it the Glacier
House takes its name. But the glacier
that faces to the northeast is much the
finest, although smaller. As the weary
climber gets his first view, as he struggles
up to the timber line he must be dull and
callous indeed if he does not enthuse
over this wonderful mountain spectacle.
The scene is overpowering in its magnificence, as one catches a vague and
rapid glance at it through the branches.
We ascended the mountain to a
point opposite the foot of this glacier
and about half a mile from it. The
view from here is one that we do not
hesitate to say is seldom equalled in
mountain scenery. The bed of the
glacier lies in a vast cup-shaped area
with a low side. It may have been a
crater of a volcano and Thor have
knocked one side out of it with his
mighty hammer. The front of the
glacier is clean and is honeycombed
with crevices and high pieces of it are
continually breaking off and crashing
down the mountain side. On the left
is a mighty perpendicular crag rising
some two thousand feet in the air���one
of those steep and awful crags that
make one shudder to look at.
On top of the, glacier and piled up
nearly to the very mountain tops are
stupendous drifts of snow, vast and
billowy, and creating an unparalleled
vision of whiteness and purity. What
a wonderful impression this glacier
makes on the lover of nature when he
sees it for the first time, and a true
sense of its primeval greatness sweeps
in on his soull How many ages has it
reigned over this wild mountain scene?
Did it overlook the valley before the
Bulkley had formed its course, and
before the present great forest had
grown? What an impression it gives
of age, vastness and fierce persistency;
having but one steady purpose, that
of forcing its way down  the mountain
will make this glacier region one of its
tourist attractions. It ought soon to
attract fame as a mountain resort.

GOING SIXTY-SIX THOUSAND MILES AN HOUR
Rate at Which This Old World Wobbles Us Through Space, the
Sport of Twelve Different Movements and Perturbations
Caused by Changing Attractions of Planets.
M. Camille Flammarion, the famous
French astronomer, contributes the following interesting article to the New
York Herald (Paris edition) on the
movements of the earth in space:
The earth on which we are is the
sport of twelve movements. To indicate them, as briefly as possible, they
are:
1. Its daily rotation round its axis in
23 hours and 56 minutes.
2. Its annual revolution round the
sun in 366 days and a quarter.
3. The procession of the equinoxes in
26,766 years.
4. The monthly movement of the
earth round the centre of gravity of
the earth and moon coupled.
6. The nutation caused by the moon's
attraction, in eighteen years and a half.
6. The secular variation of the obliquity of the ecliptic.
7. The secular variation of the eccentricity of the terrestrial orbit.
8. The displacement of the line of the
aspides (the great axis of the terrestrial orbit) in 21,000 years.
9. The perturbations caused by the
constantly changing attraction of the
planets.
10. The displacement of the centre of
gravity of the solar system around
which the earth turns annually.
11. The general translation of the
solar system, which carries the earth,
like all other planets, towards the constellation Hercules.
12. The movement of the earth's pole
which causes a slight variation of all
latitudes, according to a rather bizarre
oscillation.
A thirteenth movement may be added to these twelve movements���that of
the tides of the earth's crust, which
twice a day raise the soil under our
feet to an extent which varies following
the zones and which at the equator attains twenty inches.
All these movements take place
without any direct sensation being experienced by us. Whether reposing
during the night in a well-closed room
or seated in the middle of a solitary
and silent wood, we never imagine that
in reality we are being borne away into
space by a motor-car at the fantastic
speed of 66,260 miles an hour.
Yet the terrestrial globe about which
we live is a motor-car of the weight of
6,864,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons, and
of 7,917 miles diameter, which in one
year completes round the sun a circuit
measuring 681,300,000 miles, thus obliging it to travel at a speed of 1,690,000
miles a day, or 66,250 an hour, 1,104
a minute, or 18 2-6 miles a second.
That is our condition in the bosom of
the most apparent repose, of the immobility of everything which surrounds
us, and of the most absolute silence.
And the mechanism of the universe is
so admirably organized that none of
our senses can perceive this relentless
movement. Night and day we are
thus carried through space with a prodigious activity which constitutes the
universal life of beings and things.
Since it has existed, the earth has
not twice passed along the same road
for it does not describe a closed orbit
round the sun, but a helix resulting from
the sombinatio-n of its annual revolution round the sun with the translation
of that star in space. On one hand it
sails round the sun at the rate of 66,250
miles an hour, as I have said, and on the
other it advances toward the stars of
Hercules at a speed of from 4,360 to
4,980 miles an hour.
All is movement. Everything is in
motion. And it is even impossible to
take account of the real speed since our
measures are all based on points which
themselves are mobile. We know stars
the speed of which is 62,124,186,248
miles a second. All the stars in the
heavens, which to us seem fixed and
which still today form figures of constellations analogous to those contemplated by the eyes of Homer and Pythagoras thousands of years ago, are hurled into space in every direction and
their apparent immutability is derived
only from their distance.
But, in reality, all the constellations
are falling apart. The seven stars of
the Great Bear are straggling slowly
away from each other, the three kings
in the belt of Orion are separating, Arc-
turns, in the constellation of Bootes is
rushing towards Virgo, Sirius is moving off in the direction of Canopus, the
star Alpha in Cygnus is coming towards
us in a direct line but will never -reach
us. The famous star 1830 Groombridge
is dashing away in infinity at a speed
of 372 miles a second.
All these suns, all these world-systems are running, flying, fleeing, are
being showered like snow flakes scattered in a blizzard, and form the molecules, the atoms of a prodigious organism, living by an unknown life, in
the immensity of which our planet is
only an imperceptible piece of machinery, but a real part regulated by intelligent laws, by virtue of which the
mechanism works and is neither a chaos
nor an inert mass. Yes. All is motion,
all life.
A party of prospectors, representing a
Kamploops, B. C, syndicate, after having spent the summer examining the
country along the route of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway' between Fort
George and the head waters o! the
Fraser river, lately returned to Kamloops. The Standard, published in that
town, says:
"During the trip every care was taken
to examine the country thoroughly both
for agricultural purposes and for mineral. The country to Tete Jaune Cache
contains much excellent agricultural
land easliy cleared, which will be along
the line of railway when completed. It
is, however, likely to become a mineral
producing area according to reports
made by Mr. J. C. Bradley, who is in
charge of operations for the syndicate,
and outside of mica deposits will never
produce any surprises. The mica deposits are immense, though, and on the
Tete Jaune Cache country may in a
few year be able to control the markets
of the world so far as this mineral is
concerned. At Tete Jaune Cache the
party met Mr. Stanley Washburn, of
Minneapolis, who, with Mr. A. C.
Thruston, a New York mining engineer,
was examining the mica deposits at
that place."
FORMED SUICIDE PACT
Woman Performs Her Part but Man
Is Arrested
Seattle, Sept. 28.���Carrying out her
part of a suicide pact entered into with
Ruel A. Custer, a private of company
"B," First infantry, Vancouver barracks, Vancouver, Mrs. Charles M.
Freehouse, Tacoma, today, in a room
at the Boas hotel, 216 Spring street,
ended her life by taking strychnine.
As Detective Charles Phillips and Patrolman Charles More, who were sent
to investigate the death of the woman,
were standing at her bedside, Custer
entered the room. He was arrested and
his clothing searcehd. On his person
was found a farewell letter to his mother,
Mrs. Frank Custer, of Madison, Ind., in
which Custer said that he, too, had
planned to end his life.
ANOTHER LAID OFF
Troubles in National Printing Bureau Still Continue
Ottawa, Sept. 28.���Another official of
the printing bureau, in the person of
Joseph A. Friegon, has been asked for
his resignation as a result of Hon.
Charles Murphy's "probe" into the
bureau's affairs. Mr. Albane Chamberlain, registrar of supplies, some time
ago was asked for his resignation, while
Mr. W. C. McMahon, superintendent of
the printing department, was superannuated.
The minister will shortly appoint ft
superintendent of printing and a superintendent of stationery. It is understood that Hon. C. Murphy's report
on the printing bureau will shortly
receive consideration by the cabinet
council.

At his laboratories in West Orange
Thomas A. Edison before a small
group of people the other evening demonstrated his latest wonder���the Kine-
tophone.
For the first time he showed what
he had accomplished along the lines
of one of his favorite pursuits; the
production of an instrument which
would give simultaneously the movements of the human being and the
sounds of the same being's voice. He
has been working for many years to
effect this and he will not say even
now that he has achieved all that he
hoped for, but he says he has at least
made a beginning which looks well,
and he believes he will succeed within
a year in giving to the public results
which will if not surprise at any rate
please them.
The demonstration opened with an
exhibition of moving pictures, but it
was to be remarked that the pictures
moved with a peculiarly even flow.
There was less vibration than is usually to be seen. After this series came
the real test of the evening. A big
man walked forward on the screen;
bowed to the audience, and began to
speak. As soon as he opened his mouth
the sounds came as naturally as they
would from an actor on the stage.
He took a ball from the table and
the rebound coincided with the enunciation of the words, not only the
sight of the ball, but the sound of its
impact on the platform.   He then said:
"I will now show you more distinctly by taking a plate which you see from
the table and smashing it on the floor."
Exactly as he did so the plate went
to the floor, as the audience could see,
and smashed into smithereens, the
sound of the smash and the rebound
of the splinters coinciding with the
motion and the words of the picture
man. In one sense it may be unfair
to call him a picture man, for he was
as much the real man as all those that
we see every day in the motion pictures
all over the world. One only difference
from the actual man is noticeable that
the speaker enunciated with great care
and perhaps spoke more slowly that the
average speaker. He gave another
illustration by taking a'n automobile
horn and remarking:
"I will give you an idea of an automobile sounding its warning."
He seized a horn from the table and
squeezed the bulb three times, the
horn giving exactly as one would expect
it to do if one had seen a chauffeur
with his hands on the bulb, three
separate blasts. With this the exhibition of the kinteophone proper ended,
not, however, until the man on the
screen had walked to the side of the
stage and disappeared in the wings.
As the lights on the picture stage
went out and the lights of riis laboratory were turned on Mr. Edison said,
in his characteristically modest and
deprecatory manner:
"Well, that's all we're going to show
you tonight. We've got a .lot more,
but we really ought not to have shown
it at all yet. I don't know how it happened. It's too soon. But we're on
the right road; we ought to get there
and we will. Perhaps we'll arrive in
another year.
"What I want to do is not simply a
little thing like this.. I want ro give
grand opera. I want to give John
Drew, with all he says and does. I
want to give Teddy delivering a lecture to the nation. That's what we're
aiming at. We've already done for
the Casino Johnnies. You know no
fellow's going to fall in love with a
chorus   girl   only   one   one-hundred

It seemed to those present as if but
one thing remains for Edison's genius
to accomplish in the way of perfect
spectacular representation and that
was the reproduction in the picture of
the natural colors of the scenes presented.

LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
AHEAD OF THIS CITY
Stewart Is Getting Together a Good
Mineral Exhibition
The Portland Canal mineral exhibit
is being carefully prepared under direction of the Chamber of Mines and it
is stated that when all the mineral to
be shown is in place the display will be
one of the best in existence in any new
camp, says the Portland Canal Miner.
There has been a ready response from
operators all over the district who
are sending down nice samples of the
ore they are mining. Painting of the
display room has been completed so
now the placing of the ore may go forward. Some of the choicest samples
are* to be kept on a glass showcase
which is already in place. Each property ia to have a place of its own with
a card tacked up bearing the name of
the property, the owner, the character
of the ere and the assay values.
The need of a central exhibit has been
felt for a long time. Of course there are
numerous small exhibits collected by
the brokers but these do not convey a
comprehensive idea of the wealth of
the camp. The shipment of samples
of ore for shipment on the outside is
proceeding successfully and the displays
on the outside are already attracting a
great deal of favorable comment.
