FORKING ON  WATER SUPPLY
ngineer Davis Presents His
First Report
icommends Putting Survey Party
i the Field at Once A. W. Agnew,
E.. as the Head���Request Was
Cranted���Party Will Start Today.
Engineer Davis presented the
Jowing report  to the council:     "I
lied Lake Woodworth on the 14th
., with the object of obtaining initiation regarding its suitability as a
of water supply for the city.
IW. Agnew, C E., accompanied me
', Agnew has surveyed a line and taken
els from Shewatlans passage to Lake
jodworth and traversed Shawatlans
f Woodworth Lakes. Judging from the
i supplied by Mr. Agnew and the
formation obtained on the ground,
|m of the opinion that a water supply
i be obtained from Lake Woodworth
pt will be satisfactory in every way to
i municipality.
[I would recommend that a survey-
party be placed in the field at once
the purpose of making a recon-
isiuife of the water-shed, supplying
i lake, locating a conduct line from
i city to the lake, gauging the flow
���water, selecting a site for a dam at the
plet of the lake, and obtaining any
other information necessary for the
preparation of a report and estimate for
submission to the council, and plans and
specifications of the work if your council
decides to proceed with it.
"I would ask authority to proceed
with the work forthwith, engaging Mr.
Agnew chief of the party and such other
assistants as may be found necessary.
"Mr. Agnew has considerable valuable information regarding previous
surveys which will become the property of the city on his engagement.
His salary would be at the rate of $200
per month, to give his whole time to
the city. I am not aware of the precise
terms of Mr. Agnew's present engagement as Water Works superintendant
but in the event of his engagement as
chief of the survey party other arrangements would be necessary for the
operation of the Water Works department."
W. M. DAVIS
City Engineer.
Aid. Lynch moved that the engineer's
report be referred to the Fire and Water
committee to consider and report on.
Aid. Pattullo seconded the motion and
it carried.
The engineer will be empowered to
proceed with his work today if possible
and start his survey party out to work
and in the meantime give the committee
an estimate on the cost of the work.

EARLY BLAZE IN PRINCE RUPERT
Damage to Extent of Twelve
Thousand Dollars
Scotch Bakery, Stockholm Hotel and
Moving Picture Theatre Burned
Down���Fire Brigade Promptly on
Scene���Most Excellent   Work.
CONTINUED ON PAGE 4
The city of Prince Rupert, as a city,
has its first fire this morning and its
new fire brigade and equipment was
called into actual duty for the first time.
It seems to be the general opinion that
the fire department did good work. The
absence of a general fire alarm and the
inadequacy of the water service for fire
fighting purposes, were two of the defects demonstrated and which will very
shortly be remedied.
The fire broke out in the Scottish
bakery, on Second avenue opposite the
Optimist office, just before five o'clock
this morning. H. Hamblin, proprietor
of the bakery, was starting to ignite his
gasoline arrangement under the dough
trough when one of the pipes broke
and the stream of gasoline ignited.
Hamblin had both hands and arms badly
burned.
Some one ran all the way to the fire
station and the department was out
in reasonably quick time. Three lines
of hose were laid on, one from Second
avenue and two from Third. By the
time they began to play it was seen
nothing could save the bakery and attention was directed to the protection
of the adjoining property. Soon the
Stockhold hotel was on fire and burned
rapidly. Then the new theatre on the
other side ignited and burned like a
matchbox.
The flames rose high and people were
roused from their beds in every part
of the city. There were plenty of volun-
ters to assist the fire laddies, too many,
in fact. Along Second avenue and Third
people hurried to pack to get their
treasures into the streets. A cottage at
the rear of the bakery took fire and the
Third avenue people thought the flames
would attack their building next. Miss
Gleeson's boarders hurriedly packed up,
as did the people in the restaurant next
door. But the firemen prevented the
flames spreading any further in that
direction.
Chief of Police Carvell says he heard
somebody running up the street yelling
fire. He donned his clothes and hurried
to the fire. By the time he arrived at
the scene the bakery was a goner and
the Stockholme hotel starting. Streams
were alread playing on the fire, so the
fire boys must have been pretty alert.
There was fortunately scarcely any wind
or it would have been worse. As it was

JAPANESE
WAS KILLED
Cabbed in the back with
his own knife
Iiwasaki Was Out for Blood, But
His Own Was Spilled���Wadakabi
Did the Deed But the Coroner's
Jury Say He Was Justified.
[The coroner's  jury  which  inquired
o the death of Kawasaki, brought in
verdict that  Wadakabi  caused  the
>th but he did so in self defence and
justified.     Magistrate  Sandilands
edwuy had previously given the Jap
J preliminary hearing and committed
[m for trial.   Chief Wynn brought him
r on Sal unlay night and sent him with
W Campbell.
Coror... J. H. Mc.Iallin and Chief
Wynn held an inquest in Jedway on
Friday to inquire into the death of
Kawasaki, a Japanese. It seems that
the dead man got on a drunk at Rose
Harbor and went up to the bunk house
to look for trouble. That he found it is
quite true. Kawasaki took an ax into
the bunk house and called for anyone
to fight him. The ax was taken away
from him. He then got a knife and a club
and returned to the house. No one
to fight so he went to Wadakabi's bunk
and pulled him out of bed and hit him
with the club. Wadakabi was a smaller
man but he was game He got up and
tussled with the drunken Jap and finally
gained possession of the knife and
floored Kawasaki. They rolled and tossed
about the floor until stopped, but not
before Wadakabi had successfully used
the knife on his victim. When Dr.
Tremayne examined the body he found
two small stabs on the left side of the
abdomen, and one in the back an inch
wide and about four inches long. The
left lung had been punctured from the
back and that was the cause of death.
After the fight the other Japanese
in the bunk house did all they could
to prolong Kawasaki's life but he died
on Sunday June 26th. ":
The coroner's jury brought in the
following verdict:-
"We the members of the coroner's
jury held at the court house in Jedway
on July 16th, 1910, find that the Japanese Kawasaki, came to his death at the
hands of Wadakabi; we also find that
the said Wadakabi acted in self defence
and was justified.

BROKE THE SABBATH
Real Estate Broker Caught Swimming in the Harbor
As the Prince Albert was yesterday
moving from the lower dock to the

in the bay and a man clinging to it.
A boat was lowered and two seamen
sent to the rescue. They brought in the
capsized boat and also the half drowned
man. E. C. Gibbone, the broker, seems
none the worse for his Sunday dip in
the cold, cold sea.
Mrs. Thomas Dunn and daughter left

That hotbed of anarchy Barcelona
has been under martial law since before
the execution of the great Spanish
educator, and it is still under martial
law with uprisings every two or three
days that keep the garrison active and
the jails full. Bilboa, Santandera,
Saragossa and other cities are now under
martial law. All the people seem ready
to rise at a moment's notice, and they
are not without firearms and bombs
which have been smuggled in, mainly
through the lesser frontier towns.
It is stated on good authority that a
meeting of the cabinet was called this
morning, specially to consider what
steps should be taken to cope with the
alarming situation. At this meeting the
king was strongly advised to suspend the
constitution and proclaim a military
dictatorship. It is believed this will be
done. Such a course would be playing
directly into the hands of the clerics,
who are everywhere active for the
downfall of the throne.

COAST LEAGUE GAMES
Spokane and Seattle Play a Moonlight Game Without Scoring
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver July 18.���The ball games
here and at Spokane on Saturday afternoon were both most strenuously contested. In the former only one run was
secured, and that by the home team.
In the game at Spokane against Seattle
darkness stopped the game in the sixth
innings and neither side had scored.
In Sunday's game Vancouver was again
a winner, scoring three runs to Tacoma
duck egg, and Spokane won a double-
header.
ESTIMATES   PASSED   COUNCIL
Rate of Fifteen Mills Was
Adopted For This Year.
Total Revenue Will be Nearly Two
Hundred Thousand Dollars���
The Provincial Government Gets
a Big Slice���Permanent Work.
Prince Rupert's first tax rate will be
15 mills and that amount will cover
everything. There will be no special
for schools or hospitals. Trade licenses
will be issued, but none of them are
particularly heavy. The land will be
charged up with practically the whole
amount.
The budget as submitted by the
finance committee, with Aid. Pattullo
as chairman, was adopted with but one
amendment. Instead of an item "Taking
over Telephone System $25,000" it
was changed to "general contingencies
and telephone fund $25,000."
The total receipts are estimated at
$152,788,01 and the total expenditure
at $148,870,00 leaving a surplus of
$3,918.01.
Aid. G. R. Naden put up a very strong
and earnest argument in favor of cutting
down the rate to about 10 mills. He
urged that the telephone and city hall
items be struck out and debentures
issued. He asked that the fire shief be
made building inspector also and save
the officials salary. Ail of these motions
were defeated. Aid. Barrow was the
only one who voted with Aid. Naden.
After three futile attempts to strike
items out of the estimates and reduce
tbe rate Aid. Naden said he would ask
no further reductions. He intended to
ask that the sanitary inspector be dispensed with and that the police perform
those duties. In face of the stand taken
by the rest of the council he would not
say any more.

committee and the rest of the council

POLICE OF THE AIR
Portly  Cops   Mounted   on   Aerettes
To Chase the Joy Riders.
The prudent Germans with their
bent for regulating everything have
already prepared police rules for air
navigators. What these are, precisely, the cable has not said, but to a
certain extent thay may be conjectured
by any one who has watched passengers on an excursion. Persons taking
their lunch on board will be fined, let
us hope, if they drop lemon peel or
tomato cans upon unoffending pedestrians below. Hilarious young men
who empty lemonade bottles and then
throw them away, will doubtless be
rigorously prosecuted by any householder whose window panes or flower
pots suffer damage. Traiiling anchors
that rip up flower beds or remove
chimneys should be liable for substantial damages.
Of course there wil! have to be an
aerial police to look after these things.
With a number of by-planes, monoplanes and dirigibles circling about
overhead, the pedestrian or the householder Who finds unwished f6r things
falling from the skies will experience
some difficulty in identifying the offender, and much more in following
him up. As there are now police mounted
on motor bicycles to chase automobiles
there will no doubt be seen occasionally
a portly gentleman in the official blue
mounted on a police aeroplane of speedy
build, and waving a club at an altitude of
several thousand feet, at offending
tourists from the Balfour hotel.��� Nelson

Canadians on Royal Oath
Discordant messages go from Canada to Westminster concerning the
"coronation oath," The British Parliament is assured by high authority that
several hundred thousand Canadian
Protestants are protesting against any
mftigation of the royal declaration. On
the other hand the Baptists of British
Columbia, so far as they were represented in the recent convention have
almost unanimously advised the elimination of the words wherein the sovereign is made to say that the faith
and worship of his Roman Catholic
subjects are superstitious and idolatrous. In view of this diversity of
counsel members of parliament will
perhaps be guided by what they believe to be British opinion and allow
Canadian advices to cancel each other.

For Non-Union Workmen
The following notice has been posted
in Vancouver: For the protection of
our employees and the business upon
which they and we depend for our living, we have decided that from today
this plant will employ only independent non-union workmen. This measure
has been adopted by the United Metal
Trades Association of the Pacific Coast."
The foregoing notice was posted Wednesday morning in every machine shop,
shipbuilding yard, foundry and other
works connected with the metal trades,
where   the   employing   individuals   or
corporations are members of the Metal
Trades Association. As all but three cr
four of the employees in this city are in
the association this means that if the
unions fail the entire industry will be
run on a non-union basis.���Victoria

Tsimpson Lodge A. F. & A. M. to be
Formally Constituted Saturday
The officers of Tsimpson Lodge
A. F. & A. M., are in receipt of the information that the lodge will be formally
constituted under the warranty issued
by the Grand Lodge at their last communication. Heretofore the lodge has
been working under dispensation but
the petition for a charter has been
granted. It is exceptional for a lodge to
get a charter so soon after its formation
and it speaks well for the masonic
fraternity in this city. The constitutiort
will take place on Saturday evening next
July 23 and it is expected that F. J. Burd,
deputy Grand Master of Vancouver will
have charge of the ceremonies. A meeting
to arrange for the details will be held in
the Masonic rooms on Tuesday evening.
DESTROYED THE TURKEY
Medical Health Officer Reddie Ha*
Started   to   Work
Although only appointed medical
health officer last week Dr. Reddie has
begun his duties and one uf the first
things he did was to examine a shipment
of turkeys. There were two hundred and
fifty pounds in the consignment and when
the M. H. O. looked them over he found
them so far gone that they were unfit
for human food. He therefore had them
destroyed. A few deals of this kind and
the local merchants will compel the
transportation companies to provide
proper cold storage accommodation on
their boats for handling meats and
perishable goods.
Boring   for   Oil
Messrs. Leonard and Reid and M. M.
Stephens have become interested in an
oil company with a good claim in Kern
county, California, and anticipate some
big profits within a few months. A
syndicate composed of these gentlemen,
and five other Victoria and Vancouver
men have secured the controlling interest in the Maricopa Oil Company
capitalized at one million. They have a
60 acre property right in the oil belt and
near a couple of gushers.. A well is now
being put down and that they will strike
oil is almost certain.
Advertising   the   Province
During the past few days the provincial bureau of information has
shipped approximately thirty thousand
pamphlets and booklets to Winnipeg
for distributing at the exhibition there
opening on the 13th instant, and at
which Messrs. Bullock-Webster and
Brandrith are officially representing
the Department of Agriculture. There
have also been sent forward a number of
handsome enlarged photographs representative of the industrial, agricultural and orchards scenes in this
westernmost province.

THE FIFTEEN MILL RATE.
The city council have placed a ten mill rate on Prince Rupert for the first
year's taxes. To sections five, six, seven and eight, this tax will not necessarily be
burdensome although it is half as much again as the property owners anticipated.
In section one there is going to be a very heavy tax and one which may be em-
embarrassing in many ways. One and a half per cent is apparently a reasonable
tax in comparison with the taxes'of other cities but in Prince Rupert there is as
yet absolutely nothing to show for it. The one an one half per cent will give us
nothing but a city hall and the nucleus of a telephone system. The waterworks,
the electric light plant and the street improvements are all to come yet and to be
added to the present rate.
Fifteen mills establishes a precedent which later councils may add to but which
will never be lowered. Next year when the street improvements are charged up
under the frontage tax the rate of taxation will go the limit, probably 30 mills in
section one. This rate, with the business tax, is going to make section one an expensive place to hold property.. It will show also the error of the frontage tax principal applied to street improvements.
It has been suggested that the sum of $350,000 be raised by debentures chargable
to section one for local improvements. The interest and sinking fund for 20 years on
a $3,000,000 assessment means an additional rate of 12 mills.
Add to this amount the tax rate for waterworks, electric light, sewers, schools
and some other essentials and the section one property will be paying taxes as big
as a rent. Section one will pay for the streets and everyone will use them.
A fifteen mill general rate, a 12 mill improvement rate, and other rates to follow
is not a very enticing proposition to put up to an investor who wants to buy business
property. It is to be hoped for the sake of the business man that the local improvement tax does not start until next year.
EXHIBITION FOR
PRINCE RUPERT
MR.  HALSEY  CHOSEN  PERMANENT   SECRETARY
Exhibition to Open September
Twentieth and Remain Open Two
Following Days���Exhibit to be
Sent to New Westminster Fair
In October.
A general meeting of the Skeena
District Agricultural and Industrial
Association was held in the rooms of
the Board of Trade on Saturday night
and fully discussed tne details for the
completion of the organization and those
of the exhibition to be held this first
year. G. D. Tite, who presided over the
meeting and has been the chairman of
the general committee that has brought
the project to its present progressive
state, was chosen president of the
association, and Charles Halsey its
secretary, reported through its chairman,
Wm. Manson, M. P. P., the name of
Mr. Halsey only, with the statement that
no other could be found as well qualified
for such a position of responsibility.
This statement was supported by other
members of the committee, who pointed
out that the whole success of the enterprise must rest on the man appointed
to fill the position of secretary. The
salary recommended was $100 per month
for three months, to devote his whole
time to the work.
Mr. Halsey was acting secretary already but showed a disinclination to
accepting the position offered. He did
so, however, and the arrangements for
the holding of the exhibition were next
discussed.
It is understood, in the first place,
that there to be no money prizes and
no sports in connection with the exhibition. All hoped for, in fact, is
to lay the foundation for a permanent
exhibition, that visitors to the city may
have an object lesson of the vast resources, agricultural and mineral, the
city has behind it. The exhibits to be
shown here are to be sent to the New
Westminster annual fair, where they will
doubtless attract considerable attention
and serve to advertise the city.
The .'air here is to open on September
20th and to remain open the two following days, after which the exhibits will
be shipped to New Westminster.
GRADING IN
SECTION SEVEN
continued from page 1
streets to sub-grade would cost an additional $20,000. All the land abutting
on this plank roadway^will be benefitted
thereby and should be assessed according
to frontage.
According to the engineer's report
there are 2240 feet on Government
property which is exempt and which
will be benefitted. For that reason the
engineer considered it would be advisable for the city to assume a portion
of the cost of the heavy cutting necessary.
Aid. Pattulll moved that the report
be referred to the streets committee to
report on.
Aid. Lynch said that if the committee
was to make a recommendation he would
go to the property owners in that district
and ask them what they wanted���just
a plank road or to have the road referred to be brought down to grade.
If they were willing to pay for the grading he would let the work  be done.
Aid. Hilditch took occasion to object
to the grading being charged up to the
few property owners immediately benefited. He said that as section one had
been made a local improvement district
and the cost of all grading divided
equally over the district, the same
policy should be pursued in section
seven.
Aid. Lynch and Aid. Hilditch could
not agree and the report was referred
to the streets committee to deal with.

Seattle, July 14.���When Attorney-
General Wickersham and Secretary of
Commerce and Labor Nagel arrive
in Alaska .late this month they will
find in progress a political campaign
whose bitterness rivals that displayed
in any of the more popular states,
The contest is for election as dele-
rate to Congress and the candidates
are Ed. S. Orr, formerly mayor of
Tacoma, regular Republican and James
Wickersham, insurgent Republican.
The present delegate, Wickersham,
and national committeeman Shackelford, who is an Orr partisan, left
Dawson yesterday by Yukon steamer
for the big mining camps of the North.
Wickersham alleges that Orr is subservient to the Guggenheim interests
and Orr's chief campaign document
is a fac-simile of a telegram Wickersham sent to the manager of the Guggenheim syndicate two years ago, asking
employment as counsel. This telegram
was introduced as evidence in a recent
hearing in Washington.

Doc. Slocum received a letter last
week from Fred J. Lynch, D. Y. W. P.
of F. 0. E. for Canada stating he
had just returned from New Westminster from a thirty days trip to the
interior, going as far as Winnipeg.
During that time he visited twenty-
eight aeries. In New Westminster he
was given a reception by Vancouver and
the local aeries and he leaves for St
Louis to attend the Grand Aerie on

visit this district again with the idea of
organizing aeries at Hazelton and Stewart. Mr. Lynch took back with him a
small apple tree which Doc. planted and
nursed while he was laid up with rehuma-
tism here. Fred has planted it and expects in three years to take a rest in the
shade of the old apple tree. Mr. Lynch
is also president of the new Westminster

avenging Angel, and whipping out his
revolver he shot and killed the pastor
of the church, who was exhorting him
to control himself. The scene of commotion after this act defies description.
Several sprung forward to snatch
the weapon from the demented being
and he turned it upon them. He shot
and killed Mrs. Bryant, his mother-in-
law, and also Henry Clark, the organist.
There was a rush from the building but
his wife remained at prayer. He shot
and mortally wounded her. Then a
policeman came in to arrest the murderer
and the officer was also mortally wounded
Ellison walked cooly out of church

short distance and then took to tne woods
in a hurry. As soon as a posse could be
got together there was a hunt for him.
Some hours later he was found in the

to recover.

In the foregoing estimates your committee would draw the attention of the
Council to the difficulty of arriving at
a very exact estimate in any department, at this time, but it is the opinion
of your committee that the estimates
submitted ought to be available to meet
the necessarily heavy requirements of
the City for the year. To provide for
these expenses your committee has
carefully gone into the matter of assessment. The total assessment on
land in the City is $12,223,041.00, and
the total assessment on buildings is
$497,965.00. Your committee recommends that an assessment be levied on
the land only, at the rate of fifteen (15)
mills, without any additional rate for
schools or hospital purposes.
The estimated revenue for the year
is made up as follows :
Rate 15 mills on $12,223,041..$183,345 61
Less rebate 1-6.. ..$30,557.60

MODEL OF KING'S DOG
Teddy Bear Supplanted as Playmate
For London Children
New York, July 14.���The London
correspondent of the Sun writes as
follows:
The Teddy bear has been supplanted
in L&ndon by Caesar, the late King's
dog, who has been reproduced in toy
form as the newest plaything for children. He has been copied as faithfully
as possible, with his rough coat made
of plush and all his joints movable.
Attached to his collar is a medallion
with the inscription: "I am Caesar,"
which the King had engraved on the
silver medallion the original Caesar
wore fastened to his silver collar.
Meanwhile the real Caesar is quite
unconcious of his fame and is resting
at Sandringham until he goes with
Queen Alexandra to Denmark. He has
settled down once more to an ordinary
existence and consents to eat and drink
thanks to the ministrations of the veterinary surgeon who has been untiring
in his efforts to keep the little dog alive
and well.
The Los Angeles Times is of the
opinion that if men could buy life with
money there would be a big run on the
banks.

across the street from the fire were
only saved by the streams directed on
them.
A slight breeze sprung up which when
the flames were at their highest blew
them across Second avenue and rained
embers upon the roof of the Talbot.
But the streams, though feeble, were
constant and none of the buildings on
the Optimist side of the avenue suffered
Everything was done that could be done
with a two inch main and, furtunately
that was sufficient. But what particularly handicapped the firemen at the
beginning was that when they coupled
up at the hydrant on Second avenue and
Eighth street they failed to get water
and had to uncouple and run the hose
to Third avenue and Seventh, where they
did get water. But for this more of the
property would undoubtedly have been
saved.
Fire Chief Mclnnes says he heard
someone shouting fire and he roused
out the boys. They had just received
their new night clothes so they were
able to turn out quickly. Of course it
had taken time" for the messenger to run
up to the firehall and when they arrived
on  the scene  with  the chemical the
bakery was a mass of flames and the fire
had already caught the hotel adjoining.
The chemical was turned on the Talbot
hotel, the Optimist office and the fish
market, and all the people turned on
their small hose. By this means that side
of the avenue, which was in imminent
danger of igniting from the intense heat
and the flying embers, was saved.
Much more of the burning buildings
might have been saved if there had been
water in the hydrant at Second and
Eighth, but under the circumstances
he thought the boys had done pretty
well in saving as much as they did.
What he thinks is an absolute necessity
is a Gamewell alarm system, even if only
four call boxes are put in.
The cottage in the rear was saved
though badly damaged by the flames.
This the the property of the bakery and
was occupied by Andy Cummings. He
got most of his belongings out. A
the barber in the Stockholem hotel
also saved his effects. The baker lost
everything up to his cash register,' which
was dug out of the embers. The losses are
roughly estimated as follows:
Scottish   bakery    $2,000
Stockholme hotel and furniture          $8,000
Theatre          $2,000
. Cottages in rear          $300
The Contractor of the theatre was
insured   for   $1500.
Chief Mclnnes desires to thank the
building inspector and the chief of
police for their valuable assistance.
