AERIAL    MANOEUVRES
Army  of  France  Marshals  Its

Bat-
(Special to the Optimist)
Villiers, France, Sept. 15.���President Failleres this morning came here
to witness the army manoeuvres with
military airships. Six dirigibles went
through a programme of movements
of defence and attack, and a number of
aeroplanes were also angaged in the
tests of their utility for war purposes.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 16.���The crown did not
materially mprove its case for the prosecution of Dr. Crippen this morning.
The two witnesses called were severely
cross-examined by Barrster Newton,
who succeeded in shaking their direct
tes imony on important points. Dr. W.
W. Wilcox, in reply to Mr. Newton's
questions, said he believed the body
was "probably" female. He had discovered traces of hyoscin, which probably had been administered through
the mouth and not hypodermically.
The dose, while enough to produce
fatal results.showed expert judgment in
preparing. He was satisfied death followed within an hour after the poison
was taken.
He also testified that he had examined
the eart!h found near the body and discovered traces of the powder mixed with
carbolic which had undoubtedly been
used by the undertakers. There were
traces of hyoscin and arsenic also in
the soil where the body had lain.
Dr. Spillsbury said he was unable by
an examination of the tissues of the re-
ma ns i o determine the sex of the body.
Upon b��ng recalled he said that part
of a pajamd pocket ound near the body
was of the same texture as one worn
by Belle Elmore. The color was different but this might have changed by
contact with the earth.
Dr. Crippen and Miss Le Neve were
allowed to sit together during the hearing but not allowed to converse with
each other.   ,
It is now believed that however weak
the case for the crown may appear there
is little doubt of the prisoners being
committed for trial
MORE MONEY FOR WEST
Federal Expenditure Must Keep Pace

(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, Sept. 15.���Mr. Lafleur, chief
engineer in the department of public
works, says the annual expenditure on
the Canadian west on the part of the
federal government will have to be
largely increased to keep up with the
development. He says the railways have
applied to the board of conciliation to
deal with the question of the condition
of labor and wages.

Butte, Mont., Sept. 14.���Louis P.
Donovan, receiver for the Hypocka
Mining Company, brought suit this
afternoon against F. A. Heinze, who
returned to Butte last night with his
bride on their honeymoon. Donovan
asks that a judgment granted Johnston T. Hagerty be enforced against
Heinze. The complaint alleges that in
1907 Hagerty got a judgment against
the Hpyocka Mining Company for the
loss of a leg, and that with interest it
now amounts to $15,467. Besides this,
an attorney fee of $15,000 and $1,000 to
pay for the cost of receivership is asked.
The Hypocka Company is insolvent,
but it is stated that it formally had a
leasehold on the Minnie Healy, which
was sold for $35,000, which money, it
is alleged, came into Heinze's possession
and was wrongfully appropriated to his
own use.

Good Worm for Early Birds

thousand dollars is the choice morsel
the men-birds will compete for at the
Belmont Park international aviation
meet the latter part of October, according to a statement made to-day by Allan A. Ryan, son of Thomas F. Ryan,
the New York millionaire, chairman of
the committee on arrangements.
That Prince Rupert will be an important distributing pointed the opinion expressed by Col. Tracy, who returned from the North recently after
looking over a power scheme on Wood-
worth Lake  ays the Vancouver Province.
"The fact that Prince Rupert has
a future is a good thing for Vancouver, for if there were twenty Prince
Ruperts along the coast Vancouver's
business would ine ease in proportion," he said today.
The records for the Woodworth
Lake power were held by a Vancou-
very synd cate before Prince Rupert
was started and the city is now making a survey with a view to getting
water from the same point. The new
city engineer at Rupert is Col. Davis,
an Ontario man, of whom Col. Tracy
entertains a very high opinion.
Col. Tracy thinks Prince Rupert a
good town and says the people are
very optimistic. While he was there
a big real estate deal was put hrough
Mr. Ford, an English contractor, invested in Prince Rupert property to
the extent of $100,000.
' Talk about the Englishman being
slow," says Col. Tracy. "Why, Mr.
Ford paid $54,000 for ust one block
and he is getting 14 per cent on hie
money in rents!"
ROBBED  SUB-TREASURY

charged with stealing $153,000 from the
United States sub-treasury three years
ago. The accused recently engaged in
business here as broker, believing
that the statute of limitations protected him against legal proceedings.
Reciprocity    Would    Be    Dangerous
Victoria,    Sept.    16.���(Special)���Sir
Mackenzie Bowell, in an interview given
here  this   morning,   declared   that   le-
ciprocity with the United States would
be dangerous to Canada. THE   PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

The public school board is very much
disappointed because the new school
is not yet ready for occupation. The
building itself is all ready but the heating
system is not in nor yet has the contract
been let, and it is doubtful if the department has even deeded upon the
system to put in. The department has
been urged several times by the board
th ough Wm. Manson M. P. P., but
there has been one delay after another.
It is understood that the plans for the
heating are about ready now, but at
that the chool will not be ready for
six weeks or two months. In the meantime the old school is being over crowded
and there is no room for the new pupils
who are starting every day. Last week
there were 162 pupils on the roll, a
gain of over 40 since the opening, and
more are being added constantly. A
number of children in the primaries
are obliged to sit on the front seats
without a e.k, as there i> no room
t put in a desk, f the heating system
in the new school could be hustled along
as it should be that will overcome all
difficulties   and   provide   ample   room.
The school board are also preparing
to increase the teaching staff between
now and Christmas and the new school
is absolutely necessary.

Ten Don'ts For Investors in Mining
Stocks
John Hays Hammond, the famous
expert mining engineer, enjoined ten
don'ts upon the finance class at the
West Side Y. M. C. A. of New York
City, in a lecture delivered there:
"Don't put money into a mining property because a friend has been fortunate
in mining stocks.
"Don't be deterred from a mining
investment because some other friend
bacame bankrupt through that means.
"Don't allow any slick, dishonest
man���not to employ a shorter and
uglier word���to convince you that you,
successful in your own line, are therefore
competent to judge the value of a mine.
"Don't be influenced by rich 'specimens
that a mine has produced. As John
Gashweiler said: 'You might as well
���how me a hair from a horse's tail and
ask me how far he can trot.'
"Don't buy stock in a mine because
it has produced millions in the past. It
is that much poorer.
"Don't buy stock in a mine because
the mine is situate in a far-off country.
"Don't buy simply because it adjoins
a good mine.
"Don't buy without an unqualifiedly favorably report by a mining
expert of integrity ability and experience.
"Don't buy unless you are sure the
directors are honest and competent."

S. A. Phipps, who recently returned
from a trip up river, states that he believes that Hazelton and vicinity will
be the greatest mining camp in British
Columbia, and that next spring will see
an immense rush up the river. He says
that the Skeena river runs through a
wonderful country. He was thoroughly
surprised and convinced at the visible
values. While he went up on a general
trip his special mission was in connection with some mining interests.
He spent much time around the Nine-
mile Mountain and Fourmile Mountain.
Both of these are very richly mineralized
and several big mines are being worked
now. The Lead King Mine was of special interest to Mr. Phipps. It is on
Fourmile Mountain and is immensely
rich. In a short time it will be one of
the biggest producers in British Columbia
and the values are high.
Speaking of the valleys Mr. Phipps
states that around Hazelton will be a
great cattle and mixed farming country
in spite of what some people say to the
contrary. The land is covered with a
very light growth and will easily be
cleared. Once the trees are down grass
seed can be sown on top of the ground
and a heavy crop of hay will be gathered,
while if the land is ploughed it will grow
anything very successfully. He says he
never saw such vegetables in all his
life as are growing in and near Hazelton
this year.
The country south in the Lakelse
valley will b the fruit belt of British
Columbia. It will be m re difficult
to clear but it will be worth the money
when it is cleared. It is a wonderful
berry country and fortunes will be made
out of small  ruits.
In reference to the fruit and farm
lands Mr. Phipps said that there were
grand opportunities for big colonization projec s. The people on the land
now are doing practically nothing towards le ring it. They are waiting for
ome one to buy them out. Next year
he anticipates a big settlement.

The city council of Prince Rupert got
through its business last night in exactly twenty minutes! Even the mayor
himself was surprised at such expedition. The business was important too,
no less than the Telephone and Lighting committee's report on the long looked
for lighting scheme���the city's very own
juice plant.
The report runs to the following effect
commencing with telephone concerns:
The committee recommended:-
First: That the stock in Prince Rupert
Telephone company as held .by various
stock holders (whose names appear on a
list attached) representing in all a total
of $9075.00 be redeemed by the city:
Second: That the promissory note
in favor of A. A. Mclntyre for $4056.98
held by the Canadian Bank of Commerce
and falling due on September 16th, be
paid.
Third: That a one hundred kilowatt
machine' non condensing engine and
switch board be purchased at the price
of $3,500 as shown on the list of electrical
apparatus available as per list shown to
t om itt e by h? it e nee .
Fou th: Tha th ity intin er ake
n . e a y steps to have th b il rs
recently purchased from he relresenta-
ti ce of the B. C. Tie and Timber Co-
tested and fitted up.
Fifth: T at the ece sary wire tc
o be used i nn t'ion with the pro-
p sed electric 1 ght plant be purchased.
Sixth: That negotiations be opened
up with the Grand Trunk Pacific Development Co., Lts., with a view to
securing a lease of the site formerly
occupied by the B. C. Tie and Timber
company's Mill for the site for the city
electric  lighting  plant.
The report was received practically
without discussion. Aid. Hilditch asked
why it was proposed to buy a 100 kilowat
machine when he understood they had
power for a bigger one.
The mayor explained that by getting
this size machine there would be less
delay in getting the light supply going
while the machine would be nee ssary
in any case. Aid. Pattullo added that
the whole city could be lighted by the
100 kilowatt machine, and meanwhile
the question of the lighting of business
premises could be gone into better. He
moved that tbe first two items in the
telephone and lighting committees report, be referred to the Finance committee
and that the city engineer be authorized
to make the necessary purchases in
connection with the lighting plant.
This was carried.
The directors of Silver Cup M nes
Limited have decided to place upon the
market 100,000 shares of the treasury
stock at twelve and a half cents per
share. This has been done in order to
give the local people an opportunity
to secure an interest in their property
if they see fit. In the past a great many
have wished to buy Silver Cup stock,
but were not encouraged by the directors as the mine was only in the first
stages of development. Now, however,
the directors are in a position to know
something of the value of their property
and will let the public in to the above
extent. The mine is now at shipping
stage and this fall a hundred tons will
be brought out. Active mining operations will be continued all winter and
an immense amount of ore will be ready
for shipment next spring. The money
received from the issue of stock will
be used to continue the winter's work
and next spring the amount of ore and
the high values will put the stock up
many points.
J. R. Talpey has been chosen as
broker for the company and he has
visited the mine and is convinced that
it will be one of the wonders of Northern
British Columbia. Some facts about the
Silver Cup Mine will be of interest and
will be found in the following :-
The Silver Cup properties consisting
mountain about 12 miles north west of
the town of Hazelton and near the main
line of the G. T. P. The properties
have been under continuous and vigorous development for many months
and the rich discoveries and persistency
of the ore bodies disclosed have been
such as to merit the attention and interest of the best mining engineers in
the country.
The formation of Ninemile Mountain has been explained by W. W. Leach,
Government Geologist, as consisting
altered sedimentaries with granitic intrusions. The Silver Cup vein Is a
fissure, cutting the formation at a low
angle, the ore, an antimonise silver lead,
carries high values in silver and lead.
By open cuts and tunnels the ore body
has been developed to a vertical depth
of 1800 feet and it averages from 2 1-2
to 4 1-2 feet in width, the ore increasing in quantity with the depth and
maintaining the high values. The company is now arranging a shipment of
100 tons of ore that shows an average
gross value slightly more than $98 per ton.
The Silver Cup Mines Limited is managed and conducted by.

FIFTY PEOPLE
IN PRINCE RUPERT
Who appreciate strictly fresh ranch
eggs. If so we are talking to them. We
can safely say, without fear of contradiction, that the Exchange Grill, is
the only house in Prince Rupert,
IN ANY LINE, that receives regular
shipments of fresh eggs direct from the
ranch. Our weekly consignments amount
to three cases, containing 1,080 eggs,
which we guarantee to be absolutely
fresh. This number is sufficient to provide breakfast for fifty people daily.
We will serve them in the shell, and will
pay a five dollar gold piece to the patron
who discovers one egg which is not
strictly right. We have the equipment
and staff to give you speedy and courteous
service.

British Columbia Mines Report
A word of praise is due the Government of British Columbia and Mr. W.
Fleet Robertson, the head of the British
Columbia Bureau of Mines, for the high
character of the Annual Report. In respect of statistical tabulations, in typography, in illustrations, in descriptive
matter, the Annual Report leads all
Canada.
The full special reports upon the Extension explosion are of vital interest.
The Government is no longer indifferent
to the unnecessary loss of life in coal
mines. It has been resolved that the
situation will be met at once. Other
provinces are rousing themselves. The
honour of leading will rest with British
Columbia.���Canadian   Mining   Journal

THE LIQUOR LICENSES
After several months of speculation and comment on the part of the public
the license commissioners have issued the first batch of licenses. Whether one approves of licenses or does not it must be admitted by all that the commissioners
granted them at the time appointed by law and only after strictly adhering to all
the requirements of the act. So far there can be no fair criticism of those grant-H.
They were given with impartiality and only after close inspection of the premises
and of the legality of the applications. The three'hotel licenses were given to houses
which have for a' long time been giving the public good sleeping and dining room
accommodation. They were entitled to first consideration. By the time the adjourned session in called next month several other good public houses will be ready
for business and doubtless then several more hotel licenses will be granted.
So far the commissioners have done good work.

THE COUNCIL AND PUBLICITY
Prince Rupert is not the only city that has a council who believe in hiding
their actions under a bushel. Victoria has also been experiencing some star chamber
sessions. Here is what the Colonist says on the methods:
We have been told that there was not really a secret meeting of the City Council
on Friday night, when tlie City Engineer was under discussion, and that we did not
give a correct report on what took place. That is as it may be. We only know that
the reporters were requested to leave the room and that they gave the best account
they could under the circumstances. If the account was not quite satisfaeto y,
the fault seems t lie with those who prevented t e ep rt s fr m . eing pr se-1
e not w.sh to be u d r.-too i i.s sayin tha th re are no m i ters about
w, ich the members of the City Council mi h not properly consult priva ely. What
we protect against is t e deciding f gr ve public matters in secret conclave. We
have on several occasions spoken of the work of the present council in terms of warm
approval. The Aldermen are giving a great deal of tinie and intelligent attention
to civic matters. They have shown a determination to give the citizens good service. It is for this reason that we feel free to speak plainly in respect to the only
matter concerning which we have any serious reason to complain. We believe there
are members of the Aldermanic Board who are quite in ympathy with what has
been said above.

PERSONAL
Rev. E.  P. and Mrs. Laycock who
Rev. F. W. Kerr was last night
formally inducted as pastor of the
Presbyterian church and was given a
welcome by the members of his congregation. The ceremony was conducted
by Rev. Dr. Fraser, of the First Presbyterian church of Vancouver, who paid
a visit to Prince Rupert for the purpose.
A. M. Ross acted as moderator and made
the introductions.
Dr. Fraser preached from a text found
in the lesson of the day, "I was blind,
yet see." Man whose eyes were anointed
with dust by Jesus and told to wash in
the pool of Siloam, said the doctor, by
that act of washing showed his obedience
and submission. The testimony of his
experience was sufficient for him so
far as theology went, and having received his sight the Saviour was revealed to him.
The Doctor has a simple and directly-
convincing way with him and a familiar
and friendly manner. His argument was
that one should think less of creeds and
more of work, and this became a text
for the evening after the doctor had
left, the other ministers who attended
and spoke words of welcome to the nw
pastor, making reference to the unity
of the Presbyterians, Methodists and
Congregationalists decreed by the recent
Methodist conference and hailing it as an
important principle in the coming
Christianity.
While the visitor was skeaking the
Prince Rupert blew her whistle and he
had to cut his discourse short. He
closed with a strong recommendation
of Mr. Kerr. He congratulated*him
upon the field of his labors, congratulated the congregation upon receiving
the services of a young and able worker.
He hoped the church would not attempt
to put strings upon the young man's
energy but take him into their confidence
and permit him to lielp them. Then
together they would be able to build
a new church very shortly, and a manse
in which the pastor could entertain the
young men of his flock and thus keep
in constant touch with them.
He then read the formal questions
by the authority placed in his hands by
the church declared Mr. Kerr inducted
into the pastorate. Donald McLeod
and A. M. Ross then offered the young
minister the right hand of fellowship
and the first named delivered the address to the minister and the latter the
| one to the congregatiln.

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 tio un,
der 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."
IS YOUR LIFE INSURED?
IF NOT:���Can you give any good
reason ��� other than ineligibility

without a pastor he would "just send
them back next Monday night." He
was glad that his pastorate had started
in a place somewhat remote, where they
had the whole country to themselves
and where' the ministers had the opportunity of assisting in building up
a great city. If they neglected their
christian duty then not only they but
the whole city would suffer, and if each
did their part, keeping ever before them
the Kingdom of God it would be a city
to be proud of.

the Presbyterians and now that the
church unity question had been settled
he hoped the unity would bring more
of that trait into the Methodist church.
Rev. James, of the Church of England,
said he had an unbounded admiration
for the Presbyterian church and had
pleasure in welcoming Mr. Kerr to this
new field. Alex. Manson spoke of the
new pastor as a college friend and said
that after Mr. Kerr had qualified for
the ministry he went to the old country
and for two years continued his studies,
although at college he had been a leader
among many scholars, graduating with
the highest honors. He asked the congregation to give the young man a fair
opportunity and he could assure them
the new pastor was equal to fighting
his own way.
Rev. Mr. Kerr responded to the encouraging remarks that had been made,
speaking in a light, pleasant way, and
taking up the points of these remarks.
Rev. Sing had expressed a hope that
church unity would do away with
"sheep-stealing" from congregations and
in regard to this Mr. Kerr said that if
Mr. Sing had stolen any of the Presbyterian nock while the church had been
held latex.
Regular services will be held by the
new pastor beginning Sunday morning*

ANOTHER GOLD
BRICO06BERY
TWENTY   GOLD   BARS  LOST  ON
WAY FROM TANANA
Shipped From Fairbanks and En
Route Strong Boxes Were Opened,
Gold Replaced With Lead and?
Boxes    Carefully    Resealed.
(Special to the Optimist)
.Seattle, .Sept. 15.���Details of the robbery of an express package between
Whitehorse and Skagway have now been
made public. It was at first reported that
the sum missing amounted to $ 57,000
part of a shipment from Fairbanks of
$170,000, but it now transpir s that only
twenty gold bars were missing. They
have been taken from the strong boxes
in which the shipment was made, lead
to about the same weight put in their
place and the boxes closed and resealed.
The Washington and Alaska Bank of
Fairbanks delivered the boxes containing the gold to the Yukon Express
company, and at Dawson, after an examination they were turned over to
the Alaska-Pacific Express company,
carried to Skagway and placed on the
Humboldt. The steamship company
insists that the gold was not stolen on
the Humboldt as the purser's office
was never vacant. The hunt for the thieves
has therefore narrowed down to the
voyage of the gold between Dawson and
Whitehorse.
If your grocer does not handle the red
"C" Fresh Eggs, tell him he must get
them. tf

PULL WITH  LAURIER
j Old Story Bobs Up With a New Face
On It
, Montreal, Sept. 14.���Apropos of the
I 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
must have with Laurier," the habitant
exclaimed.
This story concerns the same habitant
who on an another occasion came from
the woods and learned of the demise of
Pope Leo XIII.
"What, Leon Treize dead?" he exclaimed. "That's too bad." Then���
"Well, I'll bet you no Protestant gets
that job from Laurier."

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-govefnor 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 ffect, it
is thought, of the luggage he brought
aboard with him at Stewart���in a bottle.
He got l 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.
