PURCHASE OF
SEWER PIPES
CITY WILL BUY STOCK OF PIPES
IN   ADVANCE
0n Recommendation of Streets,
Works and Property Committee.
dkour $740 Worth of Pipes Will
At First Be Purchased.
The Streets, Works and Property
committee reported last night at the
council meeting recommending the purchase of a stock of sewer pipes in advance of construction of the sewers as
suggested by the city engineer. The
committee further suggested that prices
lor larger quantities of sewer pipes should
be obtained with a view to purchasing
at a reduced figure by ordering in advance.
Aid. Lynch chairman of the Streets
committee said that it was imperative
that the pipes be purchased anyway, and
therefore the committee had recommended
that the city engineer's suggestion be
acted upon. Aid. Naden asked how much
the pipe proposed to be purchased would
cost.
Aid. Lynch put the figure at a rough
estimate, at about $740. About 1,470
leet ol pipe was the quantity to be purchased in the first case
Aid. Hilditch thought this advance
purchase a good idea. "We know how
much we saved on the lumber purchase
we made before" he said "by purchasing
. large quantity, and we are likely to
save as much or more on newer pipe.
It is not even necessary" he went on
"to commit ourselves to the actual purchase of the larger quantities suggested,
we can call for tenders, however, and
see if it will pay us to buy in large
quantities in advance."
On the motion of Aid. Pattullo,
seconded by Aid. Naden it waa agreed
to adopt this report by the Streets committee and act upon it.

ROCHESTER'S CASE HAS HEARING
Railway Commission Declines to Move In Regard to Grand Trunk
Track Cutting Off Navigation at Cow Bay Until Leases Are
Granted By the Provincial Government.
TO FACILITATE
BUILDING WORK
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sept. 9.���The application of John Y. Rochester and others
of Prince Rupert came before the board
of railway commissioners this morning,
Chairman Mabee presiding.
The applicants are the owners of lots
adjacent to the waters of Cameron Bay,
better known as "Cow" Bay, Prince
Rupert, and they petition the board to
cause the Grand Trunk Pacific to remove
an obstruction to navigation caused by
the  construction  of the  railway grade
across this bay.
The board was of opinion that the
provincial government must have granted powers to the railway company to
construct its track in the position complained of, but if this enabled the company to shut off the free navigation
of any of the indentations of the coast,
that was'not within the power of the
provincial government to grant,
and, in any event, application should
have been made by the railway company to the minister of public works
for such permission.
But, as the applicants had only receipts from the government for their
lots, and not leases, the government
might refuse to give leases in view of the
complications that had arisen until the
courts had decided the legal aspect of
the case.
The board must decline to move in the
matter intil the leases had been obtained.

MISS ELKINS ENCAGED
So Wires One Paris Correspondent,
But Another Contradicts It
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 9.���A Paris correspondent of a London newspaper announces
on authority that a marriage between
Duke d'Abruzzi and Miss Katherine
Elkins has been arranged and that it is
certain to take place in February. He
states that the objections made by the
Queen Mother of Italy and the Duchess
d'Aosta have been withdrawn, and that
the dowry is to be five million dollars.
A cable from Paris just received contradicts the foregoing and claims that
the negotiations are off. It says the tangle
is no nearer unravelling than it ever was.
It is believed that Reid has managed
to get over the boundary. The victim
was twenty-five years of age and had
only been resident in the district a few
weeks. Relatives of the murdered woman
live on .Second avenue, this city.
Vancouver, aSept. 9.���The search for
Reid, the alleged wife murderer, is still
on. The theory now is that he committed suicide when he found he could
not safely cross the boundary. The
murder is believed to have been prompted
by jealousy.

Winner of the St. Leger
London, .Sept. 7.���(Special).���The
great Doncaster St. Leger was won by
Swyberg.
Aid. Pattullo was in good humour
yesterday evening at the city council
meeting. He got busy with several
street improvement by-laws which the
council in committee considered, and
passed for reading. The By-law in connection with Eleventh street, Beach
Place, and Tenth street passed its third
reading, also that in reference to Hays
Cove avenue.
Aid. Pattullo glancing up from his
place at the foot of the aldermanic table
saw looming in the shadowy background
the press table lit by its lonely lamp
where sat "the dauntless three."
"Dear me!" exclaimed Aid. Pattullo
"we have quite an attendance of the
press with us tonight. They seem to think
more of us every day! At least" he
continued "they think more about us
if they don't think more of us. They
are like the poor, they are always with
us."
OBJECT TO HOMAGE
Aid. Mobley presided at the city
council meeting last night in the absence
of Mayor Stork. The principal business
before the council was the discussion
of reports of committees and by-laws.
A petition from W. L. Barker requesting
permission to deposit earth and rock
to be excavated from lots 9 and 10 block
14, Section one on First avenue to within
three feet of present street grade in
front of these lots was read by the city
clerk.
Aid. Pattullo took the opportunity
here of drawing special attention to the
urgency of this question of the dumping
of earth and rock excavated from high
lots. "It is time the matter was attended
to" he said.
Aid. Lynch said that the council had
the choice between stopping building
operations altogether in Prince Rupert
except where no excavations was necessary, or allowing people to dump
stuff on the streets from where it would
have to be removed and again dumped
elsewhere perhaps in the harbour. Anyway the muskeg had got to be disposed
of somehow for it was impossible to
excavate   without   encountering   it.
Aid. Mclntyre moved that W. L.
Barker's request be granted.
Aid. Hilditch said that at the meeting
of the Streets, Works and Property
committee held that day they had gone
thoroughly into the matter with the
engineer. It was only for a matter of
ten months or so that it would be necessary to dump on the streets, at least
in Section one, he hoped. By the end
of that period, Section one would all
be graded, and there would be no place
available for such dumping.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that Aid
Mclntyre should add to his motion,
that the dumping was to be done under
supervision of the city engineer. To this
Aid. Mclntyre agreed, and the motion
to grant thp petition was carried.
PRINCESS MAY RAISED
Has Been Towed to Juneau and Now
On Way to Esquimalt
Ontario   Newspapers  Giving   Judge
Giroudy a Hot Roast
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, Sept. 9.���Ontario newspapers
are severely criticizing the welcome
extended by Judge Giroudy in his
official reception of the papal legate.
In the absence of Earl Grey and Sir
Charles Fitzpatrick he was the official
administrator and in his speech of
welcome he said���"The administrator
of the government of Canada offers
homage to your excellency and bids
you welcome." The objection is to the
homage.
The City of Seattle yesterday brought
word that when she left Juneau the
Princess May was there, having been
towed from Sentinel Island and up the
Gastineau Channel to have temporary
repairs made before being towed on to
Esquimalt. where she will go into the dry
dock. The report was that she was not
aB  badly   damaged   as  was  expected.

EVIDENCES OF
THE MURDER
CRIPPEN STAGGERED BY TESTIMONY PRODUCED     ,
Drug Clerk Testifies That Prisoner
Purchased Five Ounces of Poison
From Which Mrs. Crippen Came
To Her Death.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 8���The Crippen trial
was resumed today, with the sama
struggle to get into the Bow street
courthouse by the crowd. Crippen,
who has been in the hospital for two
days, wore a haggard appearance and
great consideration was shown him.
He was even allowed to converse with
Miss Le Neve. The latte* appeared uninterested and gave short answers to
his questions in whispers.
Dr. Crippen was evidently staggered
by the crown's charge that his wife died
from hyoscine poisoning. Harold Kirby,
druggists clerk, gave evidence that
Crippen had purchased five grains of this
drug on January 19th, which was but a
few days before the woman's disappearance.
It is intimated that the crown has
given up the attempt to induce Miss Le
Neve to turn king's evidence.

The latest and probably most important discovery of coal in this part
was made last week by John Gabriel
and Tom Flynn, a short distance up
stream from the mouth of the Kitnayakwa
a branch distance up stream from the
mouth of the Kitnayakwa, a branch
of the Copper river. After : exploring
the ground and staking a number of
claims the men returned to town Thursday, bringing with them a large sample
of fine looking coal. Ope seam is described by them as having a thickness
of twenty-five feet and is exposed for a
distance of about forty fiaet. Half a
dozen other croppings of lesser extent
were found on the locations, and the
indications point to the existence of
extensive coal measures underlying the
entire Kitnayakwa basin.
The scene of the new discovery is a
comparatively level territory well timbered, and easily accessable from Copper
City about twenty-five miles distant.
Situated on the Kitnayakwa at this
point is a splendid waterpower which
might be utilized in mining operations
and for other purposes.

BRITISH GOING
FOR ROOSEVELT
HIS    DEMAND   THAT     PANAMA
CANAL   BE   FORTIFIED
Westminster Gazette Says Such a
Course Would Be Direct Reject-
ment of Terms of Agreement Between   Britain   and   America.
London, Sept. 6.~Mr. Roosevelt's
demand that the United States fortify the Panana Canal, set forth in his
speech at Omaha yesterday, is characterized by the Westminster Gazette
today as a "direct rejection of the
terms of the American -and British
agreement in 1901, under which the
neutralization of the canal is guaranteed."
The carrying out of such a plan
the Gazette says, "would mean the
tearing up of the agreement."
The paper admits it to be reasonable that the United States should assume some military control over the
new waterway, but suggests to the
former president that the United States
should secure any desired alteration of
the agreement "through diplomatic methods and not by the repudiation of its
engagements."

Push-Truck Wave Motor
An inventor who is interesting himself in the production of a wave motor
that will successfully harness the force
of the ocean waves, has been testing
his apparatus. His idea is to catch the
power of a wave on its shoreward
journey, and this is done by means of
a small truck with a broad dashboard
tail. The wave pushes against this tail
and sends the car along its track up
the incline of the beach. The car in
tum pushes a piston, which has connection with a compressed air tank
on the shore. The force of gravity
carries the car back into the surf until
it is caught by the next wave, and so on
inde initely.

GOOD TELEPHONE SYSTEM
There has been some restlessness lately on the part of the members of the
telephone company over the payment of the money due them,
that the finance committee of the council are holding off for a few days in order to
get a satisfactory debenture agreement with one of the banks. The money will be
forthcoming in a few days now. Too much appreciation cannot be shown those
public spirited men who invested their time and their money without interest or
the hope of recompe- se in order to preserve this franchise for the city. Those citizens have had from $100 to $500 cash tied up in this philanthropic scheme for many
months when the cash would have turned over some neat profits. Some, too, have
given a great deal of time and energy to the work of organizing and installing the
system and if nothing further is coming to them than formal thanks they at least
have the satisfaction of knowing that the system installed is an excellent one. The
work put out by Manager Lowe has been the very best. The alinement of the poles
the stringing of the wires and the installation of the phones has been done expedi-
tiously and in a first-class style. The operation up to the present has been splendid j
and no city in British Columbia can boast of a better service. In fact few cities have
aa good a system and service. Prince Rupert should be pro d of her own telephone
and it is to bo hoped the standard will never depreciate.

to discuss after the reporters had retired?
Mayor Stork said yesterday that the letter of President Hays dated June 27th
was openly read in the council, but if the reporters were not present at the time it |
was their lookout.   Another alderman, in conversation, says the reporters seem to |
make a practice of leaving when the council goes into committee on bylaws, and
it was probably after they had left when the letter was read. This might be accepted
as a reasonable explanation.   It had at least the recommendation of plausibility j
until it was flatly contradicted by the mayor himself.   In his reply to President j
Hays he writes; "I discussed the matter IN A PRIVATE WAY with the members
of the city council.   As further evidence that it was not intended to make the letter
public property there is the fact that it was not read along with the other cor- ,
respondence and in the regular order of business.

A Good Combination
A Joint Endowment Policy is similar
to an Ordinary Endowment Policy, only
that it is on the lives of two persons
instead of on one. This "Joint" idea
was first applied to partners in business
enterprises, but quite recently it has
been taken advantage of by husband
and wife for the investment of their
savings and the protection of the home.
This combination costs much less
than two separate polices���to illustrate,
a regular Endowment policy on ONE
life lor $1000, participating in profits,
in the SUN LIFE OF CANADA, at
age 30, calls for an annual premium of
$49.40; a Joint Endowment on TWO
lives both of the same age, costs onlv
$55.85-a difference of $6.45. The wife
who enters into this Joint Endowment
with her husband therefore gets the
protection of $1000 for $6.45 a year, or
an additional payment of less than two
cent3 a day. Should either die the
amount of assurance is paid to whoever
is named in the policy as beneficial).
Should both survive the Endowment
period they then get the sum assured
with profits added.
When we recommend Endowment
Life Assurance, we do so with the utmost confidence, for it has long ago
passed the stage of experiment. It
has made good its claims. The Sun
Life Assurance Company of Canada has
paid millions of dollars in matured endowments and the universal testimony
of its policy holders is that it is one of
the best ways to accumulate money
that would otherwise be spent on odds
and ends.

natural resources which the line has
already brought about from the Prince
Rupert end. He begins with the probable date of the driving of the last spike,
as follows:
That the golden spike of the Grand
Trunk Pacific will be driven in the fall of
1913, and that the place of driving will
be in the vicinity of the Fraser Lake,
was the opinion expressed by members
of a railway party which arrived here
yesterday overland from Edmonton.
In this company was J. W. Stewart,
who is in charge of the work of his
contracting firm. B. B. Kelliher, chief
engineer of the G. T. P. also came in,
and these gentlemen will both be here
to meet President C. M. Hays.and his
party, who are due to arrive the day
after Sir Wilfrid leaves. There had
been some negotiations to have Mr.
Hays meet the Premier here, but the
programme of the Laurier party would
not admit of any delay.
The railroad party which has just
completed the trip from Edmonton to
Prince Rupert spent five weeks on the
road. Their general report indicates
that the G. T. P. tracklaying machine
will reach the end of the first hundred
miles by the end of August and that
the progress on the next 140 mile contract is satisfactory east of the Yellowhead Pass as the work is under
contract, and although there is shortage of men, good work is being done
there.

which no contract has yet been let is
400 miles long. The profile of the engineers show that on this 400 miles the
entire rock work does not amount to
150,000 yards. As much rock work as
this has been done in less than one
mile on the roadbed already completed.
It is, therefore, apparent that the work
for which the contracts have not been let
is all light and that the real problems
of construction of this western section
of the road are being solved at the
present moment. The careworn appearance of some of the engineers and
contractors indicates that they are not
as easy of solution as might be wished.
One of the preliminary difficulties
which would not occur to the casual
observer is that connected with the
navigation of the Skeena river. The
Skeena is the most turbulent stream on
which steamboats ply on the American continent. Its waters are at places
so rapid that the use of a cable is
necessary. One of these cables is 1,800
feet long and the steamer is hauled up
by the capstan. In spite of these difficulties the five steamers of Foley,
Welch & Stewart have since May 1
carried supplies up the river to the
amount of 16,000 tons. These boats
have to spend four days in ascending
the Skeena, a distance of 180 miles.
Between the Yellowhead Pass and Fort
George the water navigation on the
Fraser is ery much better, the river
being, with the exception of three
canyons, like an inland lake, and water
communication for this work will be
very easy.
A feature in connection with the con*
struction of the new railway through
Briti.h Columbia, which seems to me
most unfortunate, arises from the fact
that the laws of British Columbia have
allowed a large portion of the agricultural lands along the line to fall into
the hands of speculators. The price
realized from the sale of the lands is
stated to have been from $10 to $20 per
acre. One Winnipeg syndicate, of which
mention is made here, took 35,000 acres
at $8. The law of the province provides, however, for the payment of a
tax on wild land, which is said to be
twenty-five cents per acre per annum
and the speculator would have this
element to consider.
The sale of this land in this manner
is naturally very much deplored by
many British Columbia people. The
amount of available agricultural land
alon the line in British Columbia is
stated by railway men here to be much
larger than had been anticipated. On
the benches along the Fraser are large
stretches of good land and the same is
true of the Nechaco river, Fraser river,
Burn's lake and Francis lake, which the
railway line follows. The timber is
light and is removable at small cost,
The grade of the railway is practically
level all the way from Fort George to
Aldermere, the present terminus.
Coal is said to be found so frequently
along the line of the G. T. P. in this
province that large quantities of it have
been thrown into the roadb d. Need
less to say that coal so used has no
commercial value, although it could be
used locally for fuel. The railway company expects to begin development work
at Aldmere to secure, if possible, a
supply o coal for their locomotives and
o her coal companies will also soon be
at work in the same district endeavoring to locate a permanent supply.
Although the valleys everywhere give
indications of the deposits, no r 1 development work has yet been done.
Hundreds of prospectors are at work
through northern British Columbia,
practically all the men who in earlier
years were engaged in the mining districts of the b undary country having
come to the new regions of the north.
All mining men claim that the riches of

northern British Columbia, in its mines,
will far exceed that of the south and
already at the Portland Canal, Hazelton, and in the Buckley valley large
bodies of ore have been discovered, rich
in copper, gold and silver.
The shipments of fish over the line
of the G. T. P. will naturally be large
The halibut banks of Prince Rupert,
which for years have been exploited by
the New England Fish company for the
Boston market, are acknowledged to be
the finest in the world. New companies are now going into this field,
and cold storage plants are being built
here and at other points on the coast,
The sa mon catch, which was small on
the Fraser this season, was very large
on the Skeena, and in future years
millions of pounds of these fish will be
shipped east in refrigerator cars over
the Grand Trunk.
Being asked whether there was any
question regarding the completion ot
the line in three years, railway men
stated that it would depend wholly on
the labor market. Foley, Welch &
Stewart are short 8,600 men now. No
Oriental labor can be employed, and
few men are being brought in fr��m
eastern Canada. The supply appears
to come from the United States, and
the importation of men from that country has been impeded by the clause in
the law which required men entering
Canada to come direct from the land of
their birth. This has now been amended, but too late in the year to secure
a supply for the coming winter.

COMMON PEOPLE ARE GIVEN A "LOOK IN"
The action taken by the citizens at
the meeting on Saturday and that of
last night has already and one good
result. It has proved to the mayor that
the citizens are determined they have
some rights in the matter, and that
their representatives in the city council
have no authority for keeping them in
the dark regarding such important civic
affairs as the taxation of the railway
property.
The mayor was called upon yesterday and asked for leave to make a
copy of the letter from President Hays
to the mayor read at the meeting of
the Board of Trade. He refused to
permit such a copy, to be made for
publication, but a short time afterward
the Optimist was advised by telephone
that the whole of the correspondence
between President Hays and Mayor
Stork could be published.
This correspondence consists of three
letters, beginning with the one read by
Mr. Dunn at the board of trade council
meeting This is dated June 28th
and begins with a reference to a meeting
on the subject of railway taxation held
at Vancouver, at which were present
Mayor Stork and Aid. Barrow for the
city and President Hays and Mr. Tait
for the railway. It refers to the protest
against the railway assessment entered
by President Hays at that meeting
and ends with the suggestion that a
committee of three be appointed to
deal with the question after it had been
discussed by the council and some conclusion reached, scuh committee to
confer with an officer of the company.
The reply of the mayor to this letter
is dated July 7th and states that in
accordance with the conversation they
had in Vancouver he had "discussed the
matter in a private way with members
of the city council." This is a good introduction to a very interesting letter
in which the mayor seems to close the
door to any further negotiation with the
railway company by the statement that
it will be practically impossible to make
any alterations in the assessment, or
any exemption from taxation, for the
reason that such exmemption would have
to be submitted in a bylaw to the vote of
the rate payers, "and it is felt that such
bylaw would have no chance to be carried successfully."
But this does not end the negotiations
however. President Hays replies that
be cannot either believe the mayor or
the council have given the matter the
consideration to which it is entitled and
that they have taken a wrong view of
the matter. He goes on to give his side
of the contention and leaves it open for
the mayor to combat the statements
made. This was written on July 20th,
and the matter then seems to have been
dropped until the recent Visit of President Hays. At the meeting then held
behind closed doors the only account
of it given was contained in the mayor's
brief report to the city council, to the
effect that the railway company had
refused to make any proposition. Here
follows the whole correspondence:
Correspondence   With Railway Made Public.
FIRST LETTER FROM MR. HAYS
Grand   Trunk   Pacific   Railway   Co.,
Vancouver, June 28, 1910.
Hon. F. Stork,
Mayor, Prince Rupert.
My dear Sir,���Referring to the meeting between yourself, Alderman Barrow,
Mr. Tate and myself in Vancouver
Wednesday last and the protest made
by me on behalf of the Railway company
at that time against the assessment
fixed on railway property at Prince
Rupert with the further statement that
I did not consider the railway company
would be warranted in going ahead and
making any further expenditure or
plans for the development of the terminal
until some agreement had been arrived
at between the municipality and ourselves giving us exemption on our railway property for a period of fifteen or
twenty years. I now enclose you as
promised a copy of our agrwment with
the city of Fort William which like
Prince Rupert is one of the most im
portant of our terminals and which you
will note in addition to exemption from
taxes for 15 years gave us a bonus of
$300,000 cash a valubale strip of water
front and rights to occupy various
streets with our tracks. What was done
by Fort William has also been done
by Edmonton and we have a number of
arrangements of a similar character
on the Grand Trunk in Ontario and
Quebec.
I need not repeat to you the arguments
advanced at the conference referred to
because you admitted the reasonableness of what was stated and I was
pleased to see you also evinced a desire
to deal with us in a spirit of mutual
obligation.
As I stated to you the next important
work we have on hand is the location
of a floating dry dock at Prince Rupert
as to which we are now negotiating with
the government, but I do not wish to
take any further steps in connection
with this work until the question of
taxation has been disposed of and it
will therefore be desirable to have it
taken up as soon as possible.
May I suggest that you appoint a
committee of three with yourself as
chairman ex-officio to meet an officer
of this company to deal with this question
after you have discussed it in council
and reached your conclusions relative
thereto.
Yours very truly,
C. M. HAYS.
President.
1910.
REPLY OF MAYOR STORK
Prince Rupert, B. C.
July 7,
Chas. M. Hays, Esq.,
Pres. G. T. P. Company,
Montreal, Que.
Dear Sir,���I duly received your letter
of the 28th June, with copy of Fort
William  by-law  enclosed.
In accordance with the conversation
which we had in Vancouver, I discussed
the matter in a private way with the
members of the city council. The matter
was thoroughly gone into, and it is the
unanimous opinion of the council that
it will be practically impossible to make
any alterations in the assessment, or
any exemption from taxation, for the
reason that such exemption would have
to be submitted in a by-law to a vote
of the ratepayers, and it is felt that such
by-law would have no chance to be,
carried successfully.
I trust you will not interpret this
being in any way hostile to your company.
The council will take this view of the
matter: That for the present season we
are compelled to install a permanent
waterworks from Woodworth lake at
an estimated cost of $250,;00; the installation of a permanent sewer at an
estimated cost of $300,000; the construction of permanent streets $500,000
and various other expensive matters
such as the organization of an adequate
fire department, police department,
telephone and light systems. These
matters will entail an expenditure of
large sums of money and will result in the
town being taxed to the extent of every
dollar so invested.
We therefore take this view, that wh ere
bo much money is required, and so much
benefit to be gained by the spending
thereof, every owner of property in the
city should be willing to bear his equal
share of the expense incurred.
I might further point out that by
granting the exemption mentioned- it
would be absolutely impossible to undertake the works outlined. All lots owned
by the provincial government are exempted by law, and the streets on which
such lots are situated will have to be
improved without any assistance from
such property. The feeling appears to
be that Fort William and Edmonton
can hardly be compared to Prince Rupert,
and in any event that the concessions
granted by these towns are really not as
great as those already received by the
G. T. P. at Prince Rupert. It is generally
thought that the G. T. P. in the first
instance secured very valuable concessions at Prince Rupert at a nominal
cost, and that they subsequently realized a substantial bonus in the sale of
city lots. I am sure that the city is
perfectly willing to exempt your actual
transportation equipment such as rails.,
round houses, machine shops}
wharves, track depots, etc., but on
property which wil be enhanced in
value by the proposed improvements,
I am of the opinion that the people will
want to see the taxes collected in the
same proportion as any other property
would pay.
Might I also at this point take the
liberty of suggesting that I do not think
that any advantage can be gained by
allowing the intimation to go abroad that
unless the city grants exemption development work by the G..T. P. must
remain in abeyance such an impression
would be undoubtedly detrimental to
the city, and I do not think it would
in any way change the minds of the
people on the question of exemption.
I believe that it is the desire of the
merchants of the town to favor the G.
T. P. in every possible way in the matter
of shipments, etc., but I feel that the
sentiment of the town is that the G. T.
P. has already been granted concessions
worth many millions at this point,
and that these concessions ought to be
sufficient without exemption from taxation, and along these lines I believe that
the people look for and expect the
co-operation of the G. T. P. in the speedy
and rapid development of the city.
I have the honor to be, sir,
Your obedient servant,
FRED STORK
MR. HAYS' SECOND LETTER
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,
Montreal, Canada.
July  20,   1910.
Hon. Fred Stork,
. Mayor, Prince Rupert, B. C.
Dear Sir,���I have your letter of July
7th and regret to note the unsatisfactory
character of same. I am hardly prepared
to believe that either yourself or the
council have given the matter the consideration to which it is entitled, and
feel that you have taken a wrong view
of the matter.
The property belonging to the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway company in
Prince Rupert does not come within the
same category as that owned either by
the Grand Trunk Pacific Development
company or other private or corporate
interests. It is for railway purposes;
it is covered by the mortgages of the
company; cannot be sold and, therefore,
does not participate in increasing values
in the same way as other property iii
the town of Prince Rupert. We shall,
of course, resist the attempt to collect
taxes based on any such assessment of
the property as has been returned and
as emphasizing the ridiculousness of
the figures returned will state that in
the large cities of Montreal, with a
population of over 500,00 people, and
Toronto, with a population of over
300,000 where the railway has large
yards and terminal properties our total
assessment, in the city of Montreal for
the year 1909 was $ ,748,300 and in
the city of Toronto for the same year,
including our new Union station property was $2,700,000, or for the two
cities a total assessment of $6,484,300.
Less than our railway property in Prince
Rupert has been assessed at.
There are no arguments, that you
present in your letter as applicable to
Prince Rupert that are not equally
applicable to other points, which have
made arrangements of the kind suggested, and have thought it very desirable to make, as the consideration for
expenditures from which the community
would receive a great benefit, not only
in the first expenditure but in the continuous employment of a staff and
forces necessary to maintain and operate
the property.
You  speak  of   concessions   already

Which it has not paid for and paid for
very  handsomely.   The  point  that  I

The Streets, Works and Property
Committee reported at the city council
last night regarding the petition proposing a local' improvement plan for
Seventh avenue from McBride street
to Fulton street. The committee had
ascertained from the city engineer that
the cost of this work would come to
fully $80,000, and did not recommend
lhat the city's credit should be pledge
to this extent for this scheme as the
area was so small. The plan for having
the plank roadway stopped at a point 140
feet south of Dunsmuir street it was reported would cost $3,870, and the streets
committee suggested that if the petitioners desired it steps would be taken
to carry out this modified improvement.

Proposition To Be Made to City to
Purchaae Electric Light Poles
G. I. Wilson, Robert Kelly and Mr.
Ironsides are here to wind up the affairs
of the British Columbia Tye company and
to dispose of the salvage from the fire
which destroyed the electric light plant.
Mr. Wilson, one of the directors, said
last night that they are here to ascertain
what can be done in regard to the salvage from the fire, the principal point
being the electric light poles. These they
hope to sell to the city, and a meeting
was being arranged with the aldermen
for the purpose of endeavoring to come
to an agreement for the city to take them
over.
Aid. Hilditch did not remember having
heard the second one of C. M. Hay's
letters to the council regarding the G.
T. P. assessment, read in open council
and said so at the council meeting last
He was assured by Aid. Mobley that
all the letters had been so read. He
then asked when this particular one had
been read. The city clerk after digging
into his records discovered that the
letter had been read about the end of
July. Aid. Hilditch fancied that he must
have been absent from that meeting.
He remembered the reading of the other
letters however.
Aid. Mobley again asserted very
positively that all the letters had been
read, and read in open council. "In
fact" he said "there was some discussion
over the last one, I remember."
An   Outstanding   Problem
jThere can be no doubt that the question
of international peace is one of the most
important problems of the day. Behind
it stands the happiness of the world,
its economic, intellectual and spiritual
development. The chancellors of all
the great nations are bewildered by the
claims for money to be spent on armaments. Social reformers are in despair
for want of funds. The problem is
whether it is not possible for sane men
to find a way out.
Capt. Brooks, of Windsor, Ont., one
of the biggest men that has yet been in
Prince Rupert has a gang of men busy
clearing off his lots on the hill at the
corner of Fulfon street and Fifth avenue.
It is the captain's intention to erect
several cottages on the property this
fall and get them ready for leasing as
soon as possible. The move is a good one
as there is a big demand for small houses
and these new ones will be rented long
before they are completed. The captain's
property is beautifully situated and in
the distant future it may be used as a
hotel site and it will make an ideal one.

"I thought when I read the report of
Grahame White circling over the Dreadnought, with King George on board,
that the omen was one which it behooved our naval constructors to mark
and learn," writes H. W. Massingham
in the Morning Leader. "We can build
an aeroplane or a submarine for a few
hundred pounds. Are these machines
to equalize the chances of the great and
little navies of the hour? If so, the mysterious forces that arise as we advance
to new conquests of nature may yet put
down the mighty from their seat, and
it may be well for them to be wise in
time."
