EL ASK FOR CEMETERY
SIXTY     ACRES   OF     AVAILABLE
LAND   AT   FAIRVIEW.
A By-Law Will Be Introduced in
the City Council To-Night to
Borrow Money to Run the
City for the Next Seven Month..
The aldermen at their meeting last
night decided to get after a 60 acre
lot of ground at Fairview for cemetery
purposes, and at the same time they
will hurry along the arrangements for
other stretches of land required from the
overnment.
Those present were Mayor Stork and
Aldermen Pattullo, Mobley, Mclntyre
Smith, Lynch, Barrow and Hilditch.
Aid. Pattullo brought up the matter
o( linances and the payment of accounts
until such time as the city can issue its
iebentures.
li was suggested that the matter
be deferred for a week as the local manners of the banks have to write headquarters before making a proposition
lor advancing money to the city.
Aid. Mobley thought the city should
ace its accounts with one of the local
banks that has authority to advance
money at once.
Aid. Pattullo stated that all the banks
ere prepared to advance enough money
o keep the city going, but they were
tot prepared to say how far they could
;o.
The matter was finally left over until
ie�� meeting which will be held Tues-
lay evening.
By-law*.
Aid.  Pattullo   introduced   the   first
J'-law, that on procedure, and moved
he first reading. He also moved the

Will  Start  Road  Work.
A communication was received from
M8 Streets committee asking that the
��V engineer take the grades of a number
streets for the purpose of ascertaining
����� "mount of rock and earth to be
wived,   The streets were as follows:
rom vi Teme   and   Second   avenue,
roni McBride to Park avenue.
Third avenue the same.
From foot of McBride street to Sixth
avenue.
From Seal Cove circle to McBride
street, along Sixth avenue.
From McBride street on Sixth avenue
down to Fulton and continuing along
Fulton street to intersection of Third
avenue.
The Streets committee suggested that
the council call for competitive plans
for the erection of a City Hall for Prince
Rupert.
Aid. Hilditch submitted a rough
sketch of what he thought would answer
for all purposes. It was a two storey
building with a cement basement.
Several of the aldermen thought the
competetive plan a good one, but the
city must place a restriction as to cost
and the architect must keep within the
estimate.
Aid. Mobley moved that the committees request re competetive plans
be adopted���carried.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the Streets
committee be authorized to secure the
information re grades of the above
named streets. Aid. Mobley seconded
and it carried.
Barber.    By-law.
A communication was received from
the barbers asking that the council
pass a by-law requiring all barber shops
to close at 9 o'clock in the evening,
with the exception of Saturday, and that
no shop is allowed to remain open on
Sunday. The communication was laid
on the table for the present.
BOARD OF TRADE COUNCIL
NEW       PRESIDENT       APPOINTS
STANDING     COMMITTEES.
Discuss Plan. To Secure For The
Board a Permanent Home���Joint
Arrangement Offered by Prince
Rupert  Mining Association.
It was the first meeting after the
election of officers, that of the Board of
Trade council which was held in the
court house last night, and A. J. Morris
took his seat as President and J. C.
Halsey as Secretary. The members
present were���W. M. Moore, A. E. McMaster, Victor Wilson, W. E. Williams,
D. G. Stewart, J. E. Scott, J. A. Kirkpatrick, H. H. Clarke, L. W. Patmore,
A. W. Agnew and J. F. Brandt.
The first business was the appointment of the standing committees and
this   as   completed   reads   as   follows.-
Legislation: Pattullo, Williams and
Scott.
Railway and Navigation: Kirkpatrick,
Dawson, Agnew.
Freight rates: Brandt, Clark, Stewart-
Trade and Commerce: Stewart, Dawson, Wilson.
Fisheries:   Mobley,   Brandt,   Clarke.
Lumber and Advertising: Clarke.Scott,
Law.
Mining: Law, Scott, Kirkpatrick.
Insurance: Naden, Patmore, Brandt.
Port:  McMaster,   Mobley,  Williams.
Finance: Kirkpatrick, Wilson, McMaster.
City  affairs:  Dunn,  Law,  Patmore.
Public Works: Agnew, Dunn, Dawson.
Under the head of communications
two letters were read offering the board
permanent quarters, and upon this a
motion was made and carried that th
time had arrived when the board should
have a home of its own, the communications on the subject being referred to
the Finance committee with instructions to investigate and report at the
next meeting.
The first offer read was that of the
basement of the Helgerson block, the
rent asked for which was $40 per month.
The second was from F. E. Reid, secretary of the Prince Rupert Mining association, and this suggested that the two
institutions might join in the renting
of the basement under the Christianson
and Brandt store at the corner of Third
Avenue and Fifth street. The rental
named was $75 per month. Mr.Reid wrote
that the two associations n ed not conflict as the Mining association would
only need the rooms from 10.30 to 12.30
in the mornings.
Thw matter was carefully discussed
and, as before stated, referred to the
finance committee. It was further
suggested that if the joint arrangement
was entered into the premises leased
could also be used by the Publicity Club
without charge, "as the expense all
comes out of the same purse" observed
the President.
ANARCHY AND SEDITION
ALEP1A BIANCO SHOT HERSELF IN THE NECK AT MIDNIGHT
Mrs. Victor Bianco, an Italian woman
about 30 years of age, shot and killed
herself with a shot gun last night about
midnight. She was discovered in her
room this morning by friends who reported the matter to the police. Chief
Wynn immediately put the machinery in
motion to ascertain the cause. As a
result an inquest was ordered for 2 o'clock
this afternoon.
The deceased woman was in a room
by herself and the evidence so far
points to a case of suicide. There was a
man in another room in the house, but
he declares that he knows nothing of
the affair. The police have been working on the case all day and it is expected
that much more will be known after the
inquest.
The Bianco home is on Third Avenue
next to Clarke and Ives wholesale
grocery.
The coroner's jury viewed the remains
this afternnoon at two o'clock. The body
of Alexia Bianco was reclining half on the
bed and half on the floor when the jury

For the Awful Deed.
Family Troubles Supposed to
Have Been the Cause���
Coroner's Jury Viewed the
Remains  This   Afternoon.
arrived. She was in the same position
as when she was discovered by her friends.
The spectacle presented a most terrible
and pitiful sight.
The woman, who it is understood was
driven to her rash act by family troubles,
still clutched the doublet barrel shot gun
in her hand, with tbe butt on the floor
near her feet. She had evidently pulled
the trigger with her foot.    The charge
of shot entered the front of her throat
where there is a gaping wound all smeared
and burned from the powder. The shot
had plowed its way through and come out
in several places. Death was evidently
instantenous as there is nothing to indicate any struggle afterward.
When Chief Wynn arrived on the scene
this morning he found a pocket book and
a watch on the dresser and took charge
of them for presentation to the jury
at the inquest.
Alexia Bianco was a native of France
and had lived here for the past two
years. She and her husband conducted
a lodging house on Third Avenue near
Eighth Street. The suicide was commit
ed at midnight last night. She was 21
years of age.
Coroner McMullen empanelled a
jury which met in his office at 1:80. The
jurors are Geo. W. Arnott foreman J,
J.D. Nicholls,,las. McRae and K. liownes.
After visiting the remains the jury
adjourned until Thursday night at 8
o'clock in,he court house.
TWO EUROPEAN KINGS MARKED
FOR ASSASSINATION.
Anarchist Plot to Establish a Pan-
Latin Republic���Sedition in India Show, a Public Advocacy of
the Use of Poisoned Bombs.
(Special to the Optimist)
Rome, May 31.���Cardinal del Val
secretary of state to the Vatican, has
sent a warning to King Manuel of
Portugal and King Alfonso of Spain,
giving particulars of plots to assassinate
both rulers and to form a Latin republic
of the two countries. The conspirators
are said to be Masonic anarchists, and
that their ambition is to establish a
pan-Latin republic that shall embrace
all the Spanish republics of South and
Central America.
London, May 31.���Sedition is again
presenting itself in India in the most
hideous and cowardly form. One of the
many seditious newspapers published
in Bombay, which has a large circulation all over the empire of India, has
just reached here, It openly advocates
that cocoanut shells shall be filled with
poisoned needles and exploded wherever
there shall gather a crowd of Europeans.
It goes on to argue that the natives
should not only kill off at once the European men, but that all women and children of the hated dominant race should
be utterly destroyed, in order to free
their country from the tyrinnical op-
pressfon of British rule.
ALASKA CONVENTION.
NO FISHING SUNDAYS,
Juneau    People    Must   be   Getting
Very Sanctimonious.
Juneau, Alaska, May 25.���Eight
fishermen were brought here today by
Fisheries Commissioner Cobb, who had
them arrested on a charfe of fishing
for salmon on Sunday, which is a
closed day under the federal fishing
regulations.
The men were caught redhanded in
Taku inlet, where the salmon run is
now heavy. None of the accused was
able to give bail and all are being held
in the jail here. It is probable the cannery
owners will arrange for their release
under   bonds.
Canadian in Command.
Melbourne,   May   26���A Canadian,
Col.   Fitzpatrick,   has  been  appointed
inspector-general of the commonwealth forces. He has arrived from
India, and the general desire is manifested that his term of office should
be a great success. He created an excellent impression during a recent
visit.

"DOG-IN-MANGER" POLICY.
London Journal Criticiae. Canadian
Immigration Law.
Mayor Strong Withdraw, and Falcon
Jo.lin i. Favored.
Juneau, May 25.���In the Alaska
Democratic convention, which met today, much sentiment has appeared for
the indorsement of James Wickersham,
Republican, for re-election as delegate
to congress.
With fifteen delegates present and
most of the precints represented by
proxy, the convention organized with
Hi P. Crowther, a pro-Wickersham
man, permanent chairman, and Jay
Bell,  secretary.
After   the   appointment   of   committees the convention adjourned, and the
nomination  will probably be made to-
j morrow.
A letter was received from Major J. F.
A. Strong, of Coidova, now In Senile,
1 staling he would not be a candidate. In
|the convention there is n belief that
| Falcon Joslin, of Fairbanks, if nominated, would accept. Mr. Joslin is in
Seattle.
London, May 28.���The Daily Graphic hopes that Canada will modify
her immigration regulations, and says
the Dominion possesses such boundless resources that the government
should do nothing to suggest a "dog-
in-the-manger policy."
Beavers in the Lead.
Vancouver, May 30���(Special)���Saturday's baseball games resulted as

Steamer Prince Rupert'. Two Thousand Mile Machine.
The Steamship Prince Rupert, owned
by the the Grand Trunk Pacific railroad,
will be equipped with United Wireless
telegraph instruments on her arrival
here from England. The Prince will
be given a 5-kilowatt set, with auxiliary storage battery apparatus in addition for use in case of emergency.
Should any accident happen to the
power plant of the ship the storage
batteries would be called into play and
communication easily established with
some land station or vessel.
This outfit will give the vessel a working radius, under all conditions, of at
least 2,000 miles, and under favorable
conditions at night, of twice this distance.
All interference will be cut off effectually by the use of the new patented
wireless company's tuner, which is now
claimed by wireless experts in all parts
of the world to be the only successful
device so far perfected that will cut
out interferences   from   other    sources.
Canada Getting Compensation.
The United States immigration service reports show that in the year ending with March 31, 1910, people from
the United States to the number of
103,789 emigrated to Canada, while Canadians to the number of 57,930 entered
the United States to make that country their home. This shows a balance
of 45,859 in this country's favor. The
exodus has not stopped, and will not
stop, but Canada is getting compensation in full measure now.���Montreal Gazette.

CANADA NOW A NATION.
Traffic   Manager   of   Grand   Trunk
Talks in London.
Fred. C. Salter, European manager of Canada's Grand Trunk railway
system, on resuming his duties in London after six month' visit to Canada
and the United States, was interviewed
by the Standard:
"I visited the principal industrial and
agricultural districts of Canada, from
Montreal to Prince Rupert, the new Pacific coast city of Canada and the terminal of Canada's Grand Trunk Pacific
railway. I made an extensive tour of
the Western and Pacific coast states
of the United States, with a view to
comparing the development and industrial activity of the two countries,"
said Mr. Salter.
"Unquestionably Canada is developing with unprecedented activity. Canada is doing to-day what the United
States did during the latter part of the
last century. The experience of the
United States is a guide to her, and
Canada has the advantage of wiser and
more benevolent laws, which are adequately and impartially administered
in all parts of the country. The marvellous fertility of the soil of Western
Canada is now generally recognized and
admitted. But the British public do not
seem to realize that the climate of this
section of Canada is one of the most
desirable in the world. It closely resembles that of the middle, Western
and Pacific coast sections of the United
States in which the greatest development has taken place, and from which
that country draws her greatest strength
It is not an ideal climate for growing
grain���it is the kind of climate that
develops men and makes a strong nation.
"There is one point which I earnestly desire to impress upon the people at
home. Canada can no longer be looked
upon as merely an overseas colony of
the Empire. She has cast off her colonial shroud, and to-day Canada is a
nation possessed of vast territory, with
a rapidly increasing population, with
boundless resources, and with the aspirations and ambitions which every
strong young nation should have. The
slumbering, semi-dependent condition
which retarded her progress during the
nineteenth contury has gone for ever.
Canadians are doing their very utmost
to take full advantage of their heritage
of natural resources. They are endeavoring not only to win success but
to deserve it. They are striving to fit
their country to take its proper place
amongst the nations. This is the true
Canadian national attitude, and I regret that it is not better and more
fully understood by the British press,
the British parliament and the British
people."

Kaid    Belton,     Who     Commanded
in Morocco, Seeks Commission.
In Ottawa today is the only man alive
who put one monarch off a throne and
another, his half-brother, on one.
This man is Andrew Belton���known
throughout the world as Kaid Belton
(Kaid in the Moroccan army being equivalent to commander-in-chief).
This intrepid young Englishman is now
staying at the Russel house, 0 tawa. H
has seen Earl Grey, Colonel Fiset, deputy
minister of militia, and others here
and is seeking a position in the Canadian military forces.
He is the man who put Mulai Hafid
on the throne of Morocco���this achievement gaining for him the title of'king-
maker."
He left his home in England at the
age of seventeen, and from then until
now���he is twenty-eight years old���
his has seen an active military
career. He received a commission in
an English yeomanry regiment when
only 19 and a captaincy a few years
later in the Zululand campaign.
Kaid Belton was through several of
the engagements in the South African
war, and fought at the battle of Fabers
Putts alongside the Canadians, who
were there under Colonel Sam Hughes,
M. P. This was on May 31, 1900���and
speaks highly of the work of the colonel and his Canadian soldiers.
Then in 1906 he was through several
battles  in   the  Zululand   campaign.
In 1910 he went from South Africa to
London, England, on six months leave
of absence, and just as he got there the
trouble broke out in Morocco between
the Sultan Abdul Aziz and his half-
brother, Mulai Hafid. The latter
claimed the throne, and the young English officer, hurrying back to Morocco,
offered his services to Hafid.
They were accepted, and then his exceptional   career   really   began.
The young Englishman has eight decorations of the very highest order. These
include the Queen's South African medal,
the King's South African medal, the
Zululand medal, for service there in
1906, and the Order of Moghrebia(Land
of the West), and that of Mulai Idrees
(patron saint of Fez) given him by the
present   Sultan   of   Morocco.

CUTTING OFF THE LABOUR SUPPLY
No subject of more consequence and importance to the immediate future of
Prince Rupert has come up recently than the one to be found in the new immigration regulations received a few days ago. The amended act goes into effect at once,
and within a week its effects will be shown in a greatly diminished influx of alien
labour. This cannot fail to retard the construction work of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway, on the early completion of which all our hopes of prosperity are based
both now and in the future. The particular clause which is calculated to work this
great detriment to the city reads as follows:
"From and after the date hereof the landing in Canada shall be and the same
is hereby prohibited, of any immigrants who have come to Canada otherwise than
by continuous journey from the country of which they are natives orcitizens, and
upon tickets purchased in that country or purchased or prepaid in Canada."
This is an order-in-council passed on the ninth of this month. It does not
differ materially from the old regulation with the important exception that it leaves
no discretion to the landing officer, or immigration officer, in regard to such aliens.
It takes no heed of local conditions that might be served if more elasticity were
given to the enforcement of the clause, and this is the very point at which the Optimist takes issue with the Minister of Marine. The men at work on railroad construction here run into the thousands, with probably a large majority of them aliens.
But very few of these have come here "by continuous journey from the country
of which they are natives or citizens," and therefore are by this regulation shut out.
Under the old regulation the immigration officer was authorized to use his discretion.
He could take into consideration local conditions, and if there was a dearth of labour,
if there was work for the alien to go to immediately, and no fear that he would become
a public charge, the agent could admit him. It is not so now, and the result is easy to
be foreseen.
The great bulk of the immigration to this continent is landed at New York
harbour, and it is there they seek information as to the direction in which they shall
seek work. They may be directed to the great railroad enterprise of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, and the need of the company for all the men they can get and the
good wages offered. But, unless they take out their naturalization papers before
starting, they will be turned back at the Canadian boundary. Why this particular
restriction should be placed upon the influx of labor into this country when the Government is employing agents abroad and assisting immigration at so large an expenditure, it is difficult for us to understand as it is for the Minister of Marine to
understand local conditions which make such a restriction particularly disadvantageous to the growth of this very important part of the Dominion. Prince Rupert
has not yet felt the retarding results of this law for the reason that it is only just promulgated, but in the course of the npxt two weeks a greatly decreased influx of
labour to this port is certain to be shown, as the immigration agents below will be
turning aliens back and thus restricting the supply of the urgently needed labour.
Of course the aim of the department is to fence out the undesirable and raise
the calibre of the aliens admitted, and everything that tends to this end is good.
At the same time there are exceptions to every rule, and the minister, should, under
the circumstances, make the port of Prince Rupert an exception. We trust that the
matter will be put strongly before him by the immigration officer of Prince Rupert,
by the Grand Trunk officials here, by the city council, the board of trade and other
representative bodies, to the end that he may see the necessity of granting an ease-
men; of the regulation in our special case. But those memorials to effect this
should go forward at once, as every day's delay means much more than a day's delay
in the completion of the railway.
NATURAL BEAUTIES OF RUPERT.
Prince Rupeit is not the Garden of Eden, and no claim is advanced to such
pretensions. Yet Rupert is one of Nature's flower gardens. At every point of view-
will be found growing wild all varieties of flowers and ferns from the pretty pink
blossoms "f the huckleberry, the purple violets and the snow white valley lillies.
These spring up, flourish and fade away along every street, on top of every hill,
in the valley- anil on the flat;,. Turn where you will and you are greeted by beauty
and purity. The world has learned much about the few minor disadvantages of
the new metropolis through the efforts of jealous rivals and grouchy visitors, but
little has been learned in comparison of the natural beauties, the ideal sunshine and ,
the glorious sunsets, the invigorating atmosphere. All these things are enjoyed,
here to a degree I hat rouses the ire of commercial rivals and are therefore religiously
unspoken of. They turn ;hesc pleasing pictures to the wall, and only the alleged;
disadvantages of our port are brought forward and sent broadcast over the world.
Prince Rupert is one of Nature's playgrounds, nevertheless. It is only a matter of
a short time when the world will realize this and tourists and pleasure seekers will
flock to the Gateway of the North as they have been wont to migrate to the south
in the pas-..
It is well, however, that here as in other places the beauties of Nature should
be taken advantage of, directed and improved by the cultured ability of man. Up i
to now our people have seemed too much in a hurry to give attention to more than j
the strictly utilitarian, leaving the point of mingling beauty with their efforts
away in the background. But even in a sordid commercial aspect attempts at beauti-
tying are an important adjunct, and the cultivation of flower plots about the homes
of the city would prove a powerful allurement and advertisement. Begin the good
work right now.
Aid. W. P. Lynch , chairman of the
Streets, Works and Property committee
entertained the aldermen last night to
a half hour lecture on road work and
frontage tax. This has long been a
hobby of Aid. Lynch and now he vows
he will fight the thing to a finish. If the
frontage system is not adopted he will
vote against everything else. In part,
the chairman of the Streets committee
stated that he believed only in giving
a road to those property holders who were
willing to pay for it. If they are willing
to pay they will petition the council, and
as soon as the council receives a petition
they can go ahead with the work without getting any money, thus doing away
with the delay of issuing debentures, submitting a by-law to the people or waiting on the banking institutions.
The alderman proposed taking a
certain number of blocks on one street
and get the owners of 50 per cent, of
this property to sign a petition. Then
work could start at once to bring that
street down to grade. Every person who
wanted the road in front of their property brought to grade would only have
to express their willingness to pay for
it and send a petition to the council
and it would be done. Those who would
not agree to pay the shot could not
get their road improved.
Aid. Lynch said he was interested in
some property and they, the owners,
wanted a 16 foot plank road and a two
plank sidewalk built through it. That
was all they wanted and they were
willing to pay for it. They did not
want any permanent work done on it.
Aid. Lynch very largely had his own
way last night. The other aldermen had
very little to say on the subject as they
had not yet given it much thought. It
was quite evident, however, that two
or three of them were a little amused
at the extreme earnestness of the frontage tax advocate and it is not likely
that the city will get tangled up in that
system without a scrap.
Shortly after Aid. Lynch's recital,
the question of sewers was introduced
and on looking up the proposed bye-law
re Council Procedure it was found
that Aid. Lynch's committee would
also have to deal with that question.
This cooled the chairman of the Streets
committee down somewhat. He realized
he would have other work to do than
fighting for the frontage tax system
system for building roads. Nothing was
done with either question.

R. S. Hyde left the city last night and
returned to Spokane where he will spend
the next few weeks.  Mr. Hyde has plans
prepared  for  a  concrete  block  at  the j
corner  of  Third   avenue  and  Seventh
street, but in order to build to the grade !
of the street as made by the   G. T. P. |
engineers they will have to remove about
thirteen feet of rock, not only on their;
own property, but also off the road. The :
man who wishes to build a large hotel I
on the opposite eorner also has to make ;
that cut.   Mr. Hyde has, therefore,   de-1
cided  to  delay  building  for  a month
to allow the council to get straightened
OUt    and get    some plan of action in
reference  to  street  grading  laid  out.
Mr.   Hyde  is  perfectly  willing  to go
ahead   himself   and   remove   the  rock, i
both on his property and the road, if
the council will give him any assurance
that he will be re-imbursed some time I
in the future. Unless the street is brought
to grade his building would be worthless.,

The superintendent   of education is
advised that the Provincial government
will pay the salaries of the teachers and
incidental expenses up to the end of
une next when the whole charge will
ave to be borne by the city.   We hope
that the   Government will also furnish
it least part of the new school building,
but as we have no assurance to that effect
we have included in our estimates a sum
sufficient to furnish and equip four rooms,
which we consider will be sufficient to
ccommodation until the end of the year,
ilong with the accommodation already
listing,   At our request, Mr. William
Manson M. P. P. is taking the matter ip
with the Government.
It is the opinion of the Board that it
will be advisable to engage as secretary
one who is not connected with the Board.
we expect, we are able to secure a
person who already has an office or place
oi business in the City convenient alike
for the Board, the teachers and the public
generally, the additional expense will not
be great. We propose to pay $15.00 per
month for the present.
We have inserted an item of $1500.00
for equipping the basement of the new
building as a playground and gymnasium,
ilso for levelling and putting in shape

Aid. Smith Will Introduce Bye-law
Regulating   Liquor   Traffic.
At to-morrow night's meeting of
the council, Aid. Smith will introduce
a by-law regulating the liquor traffic
in the city. The license commissioners
will meet the second Wednesday in
June, and Aid. Smith advised the council
that it would be better to have their
by-law ready to submit to the license
board at its first meeting. This was adopt
ed and Aid. Smith formally gave notice
of motion that he endeavor to get the
by-law ready.
This brought up the question of
stenographers and the large amount of
work the city solicitors have for that
class of labor. The aldermen thought
that the more Stenographers there
were the quicker the work would be
turned out. The mayor was then authorized to engage a stenogrpaher and
b*uy a typewriter.
Aid. Pattullo gave notice that he would
introduce a by-law providing for the
borrowing of money for the city to carry
along the work until the taxes came in.

THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTfMIST
THAT SUGAR REFINERY.
LAND  PURCHASE NOTICE
Turned  Basement  Of  Church   Into
Warm Storage Warehouse.
Two or three of the members of the
board of trade council, at the meeting
last night, were asking what about that
sugar refinery it was proposed to es-
stablish at Prince Rupert. The matter
had been brought to the attention of the
city council on Saturday night by Alderman Pattullo, and all the information
the board had to go upon was found in
the report of the meeting which appeared
in the Optimist. President Morris said
Mr. Pattullo was also to bring the matter
before the board but was engaged at the
city  council meeting.
Mr. Kirkpatrick asked if this was a
matter that fell within the province of
the board of trade to take up, and whether
it was not for the city council to handle.
President Morris said it was well the
city had now a municipal council, with
power to act, but at the same time it
was for this board to act and stimulate
the city council. It was for the board
to assist all in its power in these industrial matters, as the city would have
all its time taken up with strictly municipal affairs, and be kept very busy at
that. There was no doubt the Grand
Trunk would be glad to encourage
bringing in a sugar refinery, or any industry seeking establishment in this city,
and it was for all to work together in
getting as many factory chimneys erect
ed here as possible. Payrolls were powerful factors in building up a place.
Two or three members sought information as to who Dr. Grant the applicant
was, and whether he was of sufficient
substance to carry forward such a large
enterprise as a sugar refinery. Two or
three other members as eagerly answered
that he was well known to Aid. Pattullo,
that he had been a Presbyterian minister
in Dawson and that he certainly had the
"dough." It was mentioned, to show
the business instincts of the reverend
gentleman, that one winter he turned
the basement of his church into a warm
storage for canned cream.
The matter was then referred to the
committee on trade and commerce.

Two Rest Days a Week.
The Curtis Publishing company of
Philadelphia is trying an interesting
experiment. It has decided not to run
its establishment on Saturday, and of
course it will be closed on Sunday.
The employees will work the same
number of hours during each week,
increasing the hours on the other
days of the week. The rate per day
is unchanged. The employees think
that two days rest in succession would
be much better than one, and they are
ready to try the experiment of longer
hours on the working days. The plan
seems a reasonable one, for after all
nine and a half hours of work is not an
unreasonably long time. In a large city
there can be no special advantage in
short hours. In a place like Victoria
there is such an advantage, for men can
easily get out of town, or if they have
homes of their own, with gardens, they
can engage in very interesting and profitable work for themselves. Even here
it is an open question if men would not
prefer to work five days a week for nine
and a half hours daily rather then six
than six for eight hours daily. The only
serious difficulty in such an arrangement
is that it would be impossible to make it
universal.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
 Which?	
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those* dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or cruasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter���
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

Winnipeg, May 26.���Next Wednesday the Epsom Derby is run. It is a
great annual sporting event, followed
all over the world with the keenest
interest, and nowhere more so than in
Western Canada. Its prospects are
canvassed for months before the race
is run and that by thousands who never
had a dollar on the race.
In England there are regular quotations, the Derby book opening in the
winter, and prices fluctuating right up
to the fall of the flag. From time to time,
as interest warranted, this Derby betting
has been secured by Winnipeg and Western Canadian papers through the Canadian Associated Press, which supplies
direct cable service from London. Today, however, in reply to a request for
the Derby betting, the Canadian Associated Press wired as follows: "Sorry,
but we cannot transmit betting information any more. Contrary to Miller Act."

On The Site Of The Electric
Plant   in   Short   Time.
Light
Mayor Stork reported to the council
that he and Aid. Pattullo had gone out to
the water frontand looked at the proposed site for the wharf for landing the
electric light plant which had been ordered and will be along almost anytime
now. They were well pleased with the
site and thought something should be
done at once to get that property from
the government-
He suggested that the engineer be
authorized to prepare a sketch of the
property and send it on to the government. This was adopted, provided the
electric light company had taken no
such steps yet.
Aid. Barrow said in connection with
the site for the electric plant there were
several plans in possession of the G. T.
P. which the city should have access to.
He suggested that the engineer be asked
to make a list of these plans and confer
with the G.T .P.,and secure the necessary
authority. This idea was adopted by
motion.

Among the several interesting and
important questions that came before
the board of trade council last night was
that of holding a big fair this summer or
in the early autumn, and showing to
visitors in this way the immense mineral
and agricultural resources of the country
tributary to Prince Rupert at the present
time, when we are relying altogether on
water transportation. The subject was
no sooner introduced than several members were eager to speak in its support.
It was brought forward by the new
president, A. J. Morris, who said the
same subject had been before the board
last year but the holding of an exhibition
then was abandoned because it was felt
that they had started the project too
late. If preparations for such an affair
were started now there would be plenty
of time to arrange for an exibition that
would be a credit to the city.
H. H. Clarke thought it would be an
excellent idea and the sooner they went
to work at it the better. The wide advertising of such a fair would bring visitors
from all parts, many of whom would
probably never think of coming
were not some such special occassion
presented.
President Morris observed that his idea
was that the main object of such an
enterprise would not a be a money making affair but simply to advertise the
city and what she already possesses in the
way of resources. It would bring about
a fine collection of samples or ores and
minerals generally which should afterwards be made a permanent exibition.
There was a great deal of interest manifested by mining men in Canada and the
States in the discoveries made in the
districts tributary to Prince Rupert, and
to see such a collection of samples mining men would come a long way.
IH'J. C. Halsey suggested that it might
be a good idea to time the proposed fair,
so that it might be opened by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier during his visit here. This met
with immediate approval and further
enthusiastic suggestions were made by
J. A. Kirkpatrick, H. H. Clarke, R. G.
Stewart, A. E. McMaster, Victor Wilson,
L. W. Patmore and others. The President proposed that the matter be referred to the fisheries, lumber, and mining committees, with power to add to
���heir number, but it was held that for a
subject of such importance there should
Mr. Law drew the attention of the
board of trade council last night to
the urgent need of providing power for
sale if it was hoped to get factories to
be established here, as the first things
that investors in this line would enquire
into was the supply of cheap power
and then a water supply. No doubt
the city council could offer some inducement in regard to water, but as to power
that was another thing.
President Morris said there was a
company trying to get a charter a
short time ago, but he did not know
whether it succeeded or not.
Mr. Agnew said there was more than
one company in the field, but there was
one good company ready to deliver
power if it could get proper terms.
The president observed that when in
Montreal, he was invited to the offices
of a very large company formed for the
purpose of generating and selling power
This was the Canadian-Mexican Power
company. They showed him photographs
of a number of places to which they
supplied power, both in this country and
Mexico, and said they were desirous of
coming to Prince Rupert. He had reason
to know that the Company still had its
eyes in this direction from a letter recently
received. He had informed the Company
there were several water rights for sale,
and that if it meant business here itshould
first secure the necessary water. The
company was one of the largest
capitalization in the Dominion.
The committee on trade and commerce
was instructed to get into communication with the company at once, and to
furnish it with all the information on
the subject obtainable.

Board of Trade Joins the Two Other
Associations.
The board of trade council at its meeting last night approved the contract for
advertising the city offered by the Kennedy Advertising company of Seattle.
This is a joint arrangement the board of
trade, the Real Estate association, and
the Publicity Club sharing in the cost.
The Kennedy Company offers to
furnish five thousand copies of an illustrated folder, giving points along the coast,
transportation lines, townsites and general descriptive matter for the sum of
$2000, and will further furnish thirty-
five thousand copies for $3000 morb-
Of the $2000 contracted for the board
is to pay $500. the real estate association
$1000. and the Publicity Club $500.
H. H. Clarke moved that the agreement be approved, subject to an assurance from the company that the folder be
copyrighted, and the motion carried.
The president said that in regard
to the $100. per month the board had
decided at the last meeting to spend in
advertising, he thought the board had
better place it in the hands of its advertising committee with instructions to go
ahead and also with power to get more
money for the purpose if they can.
It was so ordered.
