CITY LIGHTING
STILL IN DOUBT
TEMPORARY SCHEME HAS NOT
YET BEEN APPROVED
P. I. Palmer Say* Negotiations Will
Be Withdrawn if not Settled at
Once���Aid. Smith Says he Thinks
That AH a Bluff���Should City
Have Plant of Its Own?
The question of the city lighting
problem came up again before the city
council last night and was once more
freely discussed. The Engineer's report
showing the cost in detail of establishing
the plant required for the temporary
scheme at the Sash and Door Factory
was presented through the Streets, Works
and Property Committee. The total
cost was figured out at $11,363.00 being
an increase of $2,400.00 over the estimate
made in the report of August 13th for a
60 kilowatt plant.
The operating cost was put at $28,230.
Street lamps consumption 87,600 kilowatt hours winter and 43,700 summer or
131,400 per year. Consumers comsumption was estimated at 114,976 kilowatt
hours winter, and 49,275 summer or a
total of 164,250 kilowatt hours per
annum, and the city engineer estimated
the probable revenue to amount to
$29,565 at 10c per kilowatt hour.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the Sash
and Door factory scheme be proceeded
with forthwith. Aid. Smith, however,
was strongly in favor of waiting to consider fully the alternative propositions
of the private firms offering to supply
the city with light.
Aid. Pattullo drew the Mayors attention to the presence of Mr. Palmer
who on being called stated that he lad
instructions from the firm to withdraw
all negotiations if the matter was carried
over for another week.
At this Aid. Lynch suggested that it
might be the wisest plan for the city
to go on with the temporary scheme and
while using it to consider thoroughly
the alternative and more lasting schemes.
Aid. Mclntyre supported this view.
Aid Naden thought that as the city
had worried along without proper
light last year it could very well wait
a little longer rather than plunge at any
proposition in a   hurry.
"What would be the cost to the city
of a city-owned plant equal to that
offered through Mr. Palmer?" asked
Aid. Pattullo, and Mr. Burns on on being
requested by the City Engineer to give
ii rough estimate suggested $4,000 for
material but not including installation.
"Let Mr. Palmer's firm cancel negotiations if they want to "said Aid.
Smith "I think its only a bluff anyway."
Aid. Barrow declaring that his
ignorance of matters electrical was
colossal and unique, desired full and
thorough consideration of the schemes
proposed.
The mayor said that on account of
the danger of fire due to the general
use of gasoline or coal oil for lighting
he was disposed to go ahead with the
sash and door factory plan at once, at
which Aid. Lynch and Aid. Naden
suggested the absolute prohibition
of the use of either coal oil or gasoline
in the city, and the early acquisition by
the citizens of a lighting plant of their
own.
Aid. Pattullo wished to know if the
temporary scheme would give lights
enough to do away entirely with all
necessity for the use of coal oil or gasoline in section one at least of the city,
and was informed by the city engineer
that the temporary scheme was not
sufficient for this.    According to Mr.
Burns 5000 lights would be required for
this purpose.
"This fact" said Aid. Smith "is the
strongest argument that could be used
in favor of waiting to consider the scheme
proposed by private firms who can thor-
roughly light the-city."
The Mayor put the motion to the
council that the Lighting committees
report be adopted and the temporary
scheme proceeded with. On a show of
hands being taken the Mayor declared
the motion lost and the council adjourned to take up the matter again at
next meeting.
Six Months for Moore
At the Police Court yesterdsy afternoon Magistrate Carss sentenced Charles
Moore to six months imprisonment for
the assault with a hammer committed
upon the person of Frank Lundy at the
Davis Boat House on Tuesday night.
Moore who is a nervous and excitable
temperament seemed resigned to the
situation.
DIFFER AS TO
NUMBER DEAD
INVESTIGATING  GRAND   TRUNK
WRECK   AT   DURAND
Claimed Accident Was Due to Incompetent Train Men Put on as
Strike Breakers and Retained After
The Strike was Over.
(Special to the Optimist)
Durand, August 26.���It is officially
given out that six is the total number of
dead in the Grand Trunk wreck yesterday
but the real number will never be known,
probably, the remains having been burned
up. The unofficial estimates of eye
witnesses places the number from twelve
to sixteen.
The alleged incompetency of the train
hands is said to have been the cause of
the wreck. Three investigations are
now under way. It is claimed that certain
strike breakers were retained on the
trains after the end of the recent strike,
and that they were not experienced
train men.

OPPOSITION   TO    COMPULSORY
MILITARY    SERVICE
Conservative Press Influencing British Workmen to View the Measure
With Less Apprehension, Argument
Beinir that Law is Temporary
Expedient.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 26.-Led by the Conservative press the compulsory military
service is beginning to gain ground.
It will be made an issue of the next
parliamentary campaign, and there are
indications now that it will strengthen
rather than weaken the Conservative
party There is still a general opposition
to compulsory military service, but
it is being materially weakened by the
arguments used that the country is at
this time in special need of a strong army
of defence, and that the law �� ony
intended as a temporary expedient to
meet a case of emergency. The piano,
the proposed law is to compel every man
over thVage of sixteen to undergo two
years of military training.

PUBLICITY CLUB
GAVE SMOKER
IN HONOR OF PRESIDENT HAYS
AND  HIS   PARTY
Mr. Hays, Chairman Smithers, Sir
George Doughty and Lord Clinton
And Mayor Stork Made Interesting
Talks���Some   Clever   Boxing.
SUCCESSFUL TENDERERS
For Grading and Planking of Eig hth
And Hays Cove
At last nights council meeting the
report of the Streets, Works and pro-
perty Committee regarding the grading
and plank roadway, construction on 8th I Going to End of Steel to Watch Track
PRESIDENT HAYS TAKES HIS
GUESTS UP THE LINES
The smoker gave by the Publicity
Club last night in honor of President
Hays and party of visitors was keenly
enjoyed by the good crowd and no un*
forseen hitch occurred to disarrange the
proceedings. There was at first a doubt
whether the party would return from
Stewart in time. The Prince Rupert,
however, came in ahead of the time
arranged for the smoker, and as soon as
the party arrived at the Empress theatre
the building was rapidly filled.
Gray's orchestra played the opening
and Mr. Peck, of Peck Moore & Co.,
made an efficient chairman and master
of ceremonies, giving a spice of dry
humor to his announcements of the
events which captured the crowd. After
a song by Mr. Froude a series of moving
pictures was shown, Dr. Slocum making
a brief talk on the general character of
the scenes to be shown and Walter Shaw
describing them. The pictures showed
Prince Rupert two years ago, the arrival
of the first steamer after the city got
its name, the first train over Zinardi
rapids bridge, Schwatlans lake from
which the city is to receive its water
supply and other local scenes. Then
followed a kinetescope of a trip over the
White Pass railway, a barge going through
Miles canyon and on board a river
steamer down the Yukon river, the
latter pictures being much enjoyed by
the old Klondikers.
A "lightning artist" stunt Harrison
Rogers showed clever portraits of "The
Hays Boys," David M. Hays, brother of
the president being titled "The First
White Baby of Prinze Rupert," from
the fact that he came here to reside in
1904.
Upon the invitation of chairman Peck
and the enthusiastic urging of the
audience Chas. M. Hays, president of
the Grand Trunk Railway system addressed a few words to the boys in which
he expressed great pleasure to not only
be present but to be in the town and
mark the wonderful progress the citizens
have made in the way of buildings.
He was glad to see the optimism of the
people and he knew that Prince Rupert
and the G. T. P. were travelling hand
in hand yet. Mr. Hays then introduced
Sir George Doughty, of Grimsby, Eng.
Sir George received a splendid ovation
when he stood up to address the gathering. He said he had heard much of the
Grand Trunk and of Prince Rupert
long before he came to the continent.
One lady had told him the city was the
paradise of North America. He was
delighted with the brand of weather
handed out here and he hoped that in a
avenue  and   Hays   Cove  avenue  was
presented.
The committee recommended that
the tender of Messrs Mclnnes and
Kelly amounting to $18,583.60 be
accepted for the work of grading.
Laying Machine���Will then Go to
Kitselas Canyon by Steamer Port
Simpson.
For close-cutting $3.50 per cere.
Rock excavation $1.80 per cubic yard
and earth excavarion 65c per cubic yard.
The tender of Messrs W. Reilly and
W. Roberts for plank roadway was
recommended for acceptance, the amount
being $2,526.25. Plank roadway 3c
per square foot and hand railing 2 1-2 per
lineal   foot.
The recommendations were   adopted.
COMBINE OF
FIVE MILLION
President  Hays  and  his guests  left
The I this morning on the nine o'clock train
tender  ta  estimated  on  the  following j for a trip up the line.   General Superin-
endent Mehan and Superintendent
McNicholl were in charge of the party,
which occupied Mr. Mehan's official
car and a coach. Those of the party were
A. W. Smithers with Miss Eva and
Hubert Smithers, Chas. M. Hays,
Mr. and Mrs. Thornton Davidson,
S r George and Lady Doughty, George
B. Hunter, Joseph Hobson, John W.
Loud, W. E. Davis, H. Deer, J. W. Dalrymple, Dr. J. A. Hutchinson, D. E
Gallway,  N. Kinsella and Vivian Payne.
The train was expected to reach the
end of steel by half past one, after
watching the tracklayer at work for
a short time the party will board the
steamer Port S mpson for luncheon.
They will procede on the steamer to
Kitselas, from which point some of
them will return. President Hays will
make a further inspection of the grade,
and is not expected to be back before
Sunday.
One member of the party likes Prince
Rupert so well that he missed the trip
up rail. Mr. O. B. Tennant, Vancouver,
who was at last night's smoker enjoyed
himself there so energetically that he
fairly over slept himself this morning
and came down to look for the train
about two hours after she was off.
It is rumored that he blames the heavy
cigars and light beer supplied by the
Publicity Club for the occurrence,
but the charms of Prince Rupert are
sufficient no doubt to console him for
the loss of the mail run.

THE OPTIMIST
IT'S alive!
SafOSO������������������������* i
(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, August 26.���News has just
reached here that the steamer Harvest
Queen turned turtle off the Azores
but that all her passengers and crew
managed to escape without loss of life.
The newB was brought by the steamer
Koenigen Louise. When passing through
the Azores the lookout in the liner saw a
number of small boats tossing about in a
heavy sea. She hove to and put out her
own boats to the rescue. All the shipwrecked were safely got on board and they
turned out to be from the Harvest Queen.
Many were delirous for want of water
but is believed that all will recover. The
captain of the Koenigen Louise says
it is miraculous how the small boats
could live for so many hours in so rough
a sea, and that the people must have
suffered intensely.
Big Meeting at Montreal
London, August 26���(Special)���High

Government Agent Here
A grievous error was made in the
Optimist yesterday the translation of a
dispatch from Vancouver in reference
to the appointment of Colin Campbell
as provincial inspector of licenses and
"also to fill the position of government
agent at Prince Rupert now held by
J. H. McMullin." It should have read
"has been appointed inspector of licenses,
the position formerly held by the government agent at Prince Rupert, J. H.
McMullin." It was a i error, however
upon its face and therefore no one was
mislead by it, it being unbelievable that
a gentleman who fills his position with
such eminent satisfaction should be
suddenly released or changed to some
other.

officially announced that Baron Sternberg, who is under arrest for selling state
secrets, will be tried by a military

Among the plans with which he was
found to be in possession was the projected mobilization of the Russian army

SECTION 1
A movement is being made to provide
access to  Hudson Bay  from  Ontario
before next summer. It has recently been
discovered that nature has provided a
route between the Great Lakes and the
sea, on which only about 25 miles of
j roadway   ta  required  to   connect with
375 miles of water courses leading into
Hudson  Bay,  on  which,  by  tracking
about six miles of portage, motor boats
and motor carriages can be used to carry
passengers comfortably in a couple of
days, running time, a trip which now
takes about two weeks by canoe from
Missanabie on the C. P. F.
About twenty miles of the route
has already been cut out by the Hudson
Bay Tercentenary & Motor Access
Company, and only requires grading
before a motor bus can pass over it.
Eighteen portages of less than a quarter
of a mile to a mile and a half in length,
will be overcome by a new mode of
motor travel expecially adapted to this
route.

HAZELTON STAMPEDING
Big Strike of Silver Lead Ore on the
Roche de Boule Mountain
Chief Engineer Hickey ot the steamer
Hazelton, which got in this morning,
says there is quite a stampede on at
| Hazelton. He was up at the government
| office just before the boat started and
found that twenty-five locations on the
new strike had already been recorded!
and there were many who had not returned from the stampede.
The strike is the one referred to in the
Optimist a few days ago and was made
by a prospector named Sargent. It
is about five miles as the crow flies from
Hazelton and three miles from the new
town of Ellison. The outcropping ha
been traced for a thousand feet and the,
lead is from six to seven feet dwindling
at places to two and three feet. Assays
give values of $87 to the ton. The
ledge crosses from the south side of the
mountain to the Bulkley river and runs 1
as far as the Kinman property. The ore
is said to be as rich as that of the Silver
Cup and the vein much wider.
James Cronin, the mining expert, is
in town and in a hurry to get to the new
strike. He says there is a great demand
in the lead market just now, as there has
not been a lead mine discovered for
twelve years that has proved to be a large
producer.
Minting of Gold Coins
The Royal Mint, at London, Eng.,
last year turned out gold coins valued
at $89,047,800, the three Australian
mints at Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth,
$47,461,796, and the Canadian mint at
Ottawa, $143,517. This was an increase
of about $128,000 in the Canadian output, the mint having been in operation
only two years, while the decrease in the
American coinage for the year was two
and a half million dollars,

AN UNBUSINESSLIKE SYSTEM
The proposed expenditure of about $20,000 on the grading and planking of
Eighth avenue across Hays Creek is a striking instance of the Council's unwise
policy of having roadways built by frontage tax and the sewers by general tax. A
remote section o the city makes the first draft on the city's credit. Other outlying streets and districts are asking for similar improvements and t is possible
that the whole credit of the city, (an unknown quantity as yet) may be taken up
by the residential and outer sections while the business centre remains ungraded
and unimproved. The grading and street improvements will by this plan be done
in a haphazard and disconnected way and conforming to no general plan as it would
be under general taxation and a system worked out by the city engineer. Spending
the city's credit to improve Section 8 while Sections 1, 5, and 6 have no improved
roads may be good for the property owners of Section 8 but it is not good busine s
Condensed Advertisements.
A Vancouver knocker arises to remark that the reason the Prince Rupert
Council is not proceeding with the grading of the main streets is because the job
is too big for them. The remark having been made by a Vancouver man, our
fellow citizens will be speechless with indignation.
The energy and alacrity which the City Council displays in providing a public
lighting plant is rather high in amperage and low in voltage.
BY THE BACK
DOOR ROUTE
PREMIER MCBRIDE STARTS ON
TETE  JAUNE  TRIP
Will Settle Controvery Regarding
Location of Government Office*
At Fort George���Will Probably
Reach  Prince  Rupert  by   Rail.
Victoria, August 22.���Premier McBride
left yesterday upon his necessarily
deferred and well deserved summer
outing, in the course of which it is his
intention to go through to Fort George
by the. historic river route, and there
transferring the light-draught steamer,
continue on up the Fraser as far as possible toward Tete Jaune Cache. On his
interesting trip he wi 1 be accompanied
by his secretary, Mr. Lawrence Macrae, Hon. F. Carter-Cotton, president
of the executive council, and Mr. C. H.
Lugrin, editor of the Colonist.
At Vancouver the party was augmented by Lord Dunmore, Mr. Norton
Griffiths, M. P., and Mr. Harry E.
Brittain, the well known London journalist, tbe latter trio proposing to go through
from Fort George by way of the Cache
to Edmonton, it beng Mr. Griffith's
desire to thoroughly study the country
and its conditions, with a view to making
extensive investments in the near future.
All matters of controversy in regard
to the location of the government of
fices for Fort George have been suspended pending the visit of the Premier to the scene. It will be remembered that Fort George proper was
originally selected for the location of
. the offices, by the then acting government agent, Mr. Randall, and work
was started on clearing the site, in
order that construction might proceed
and be completed this season. Subsequently the protest of the South Fort
George residents resulted in the in*
struction of Mr. Walker, government
agent at Barkerville, to proceed to
the scene and report upon Mr. Randall's selection. Mr. Walker subsequently reported stating that the en
tire sentiment of the interested community was in favor of the location
of the government offices at South
Fort George, which necessarily has the
bulk of present population.
Upon the stength of this report the
Fort George selection was cancelled
and the office placed at .South Fort
George.     Subsequently events tending
to indicate that Mr. Walker's report
might not have been entirely uninfluenced, a reply to charges preferred
against him as requested, and all proceedings in the matter of the offices
were set aside, work being stopped
until such time as the Premier himself
shall have had opportunity to consider
the si uation on the spot. This he will
be able to do in the course of his present
trip.
During the First Minister's absence, Hon. Mr. Bowser will again be
acting Premier.

IMPRESSIVE  FUNERAL  OF  MISS
FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE
King and Queen Represented and
Hosts of Foreign Ambassadors,
Cabinet Ministers, Distinguished
Army and Navy Officer* Were
Present.
London, August 20.���St. Paul's Cathedral was crowded by thousands of people today when a service to the memory of Miss Florence Nightingale was
held. The King and Queen were represented, foreign ambassadors were
present, and cabinet ministers, representatives of the army and navy, and
hosts of distinguished persons attended.
In the audience, which filled the vast
Cathedral, a thousand nurses in uniform were to be seen.'
With the bugle and trumpet the band of
the Coldstream Guards played the
funeral marches, swelling the volume of
thunderous sound from the great organ.
Simultaneously with this great national celebration the remains of Miss
Nightingale were buried at Westwell,
Hampshire. Relatives and close friends
attended the service, which was one of
extrme  and impressive simplicity.
THEY WANT SUNSHINE
Pacific Stevedore Coy Afe Unloading
Inverkip    Cargo
The contract 'for the unloading of the
cement cargo of the Inverkip is in the
hands of the Pacific Stevedore and
Contracting Co., and the work is proceeding apace.
Mr J. L. Mosher told the Optimist
this morning that he had a gang of 64
men on the job and expected to shift from
700 to 800 tons of cement per day from
hold to sheds. Shed accommodation
is still plentiful and it is hoped that as the
work proceeds room will constantly be
available through the shed space is
limited.
The cargo consists of 19,000 barrels
of cement for Foley Welch and Stewart,
2500 for the Westholm Lumber Co.,
3,500 for the Cold Storage Co., in all
about 6000 tons. Mr. Mosher is satisfied
with the supply of labor and calculates
that the work should be finished in
from 7 to 8 days.
"What we want is sunshine" he said,
"we can get along fast and clear the
vessel quickly if the weather keeps on.
But wet weather will hinder and may stop
operations if the stuff gets too heavy.

very short time tens of thousands of
people would make this sunny spot
their home. In speaking of the people
in Prince Rupert he said they were the
most optimist in the world. He had not
yet met one who was not sure that he
would make his fortune here. Sir George
was proud of Canada and the Canadian
people, and of Prince Rupert, which will
not only be a great centre of trade but
will be one of the most beautiful spots
on the Pacific coast. He was a fisherman
himself and it was in connection with
establishing a big fishing industry here
that he came out.
Mr. Smithers, representing the Board
of Directors in England, of the Grand
Trunk was next called for. He paid a
very high tribute to Mr. Hays and
assured him and the audience that the
board in the old country was heart and
soul with him in all his plans. They
believed him to be the best railway man
in the world and thus far he had come
through with all his promises. Mr.
Smithers visited Prince Rupert two years
ago when there were less than 200 people
here. He was amazed and delighted to see
such a wonderful increase in population and development as had taken
place. He then spoke with emphasis
upon the natural beautues of Prince
Rupert and vicinity and predicted an
immense tourist trade to this city.
Mr. Hunter, the ship builder, also
paid a high tribute to Chas. M. Hays,
the Grand Trunk, and to Prince Rupert.
He was strong on the beautiful scenery
here. He referred to the great possibilities of the fishing industry here and
said that to protect that the British and
Canadian governments would need maintain a strong navy on the Pacific. A
fleet of big ocean going steamers was
also a thing of the near future.
The speeches were an unexpected
pleasure, as only a brief acknowledgment
from President Hays had been looked
for. That they were all thoroughly
enjoyed was demonstrated by the ap-
lause each of the visitors elicited. But
it disarranged the programme somewhat
and many who had volunteered their
services for entirely new "stunts" could
not be called owing to the lateness of
the hour.
Little Miss Gray appeared in Highland
costume and her clever dancing was
loudly applauded. The graceful little miss
received two curtain calls. Sam Weston
did a novel spade dance and as an encore
imitations of the calls of animals. An
instrumental duet by Professor Gray
and Professor Babcock, violin and flute,
was thoroughly enjoyed, by none more,
perhaps than by President Hays, who
is said to be a great lover of high class
music.
The preliminary to the boxing contests was a go between two young boys,
Sam Weston holding the watch on them.
Then came a four round bout between
Arthur Ryan and Purser Acton of the
Omineca. This was thrilling from the
call of time, Mr. Ryan being known as
the cleverest amateur in the city and
Acton showed he was no slouch at the
game. They had two fast rounds only
but while they lasted the spectators
were up in the air with excitement.
Just before time was to be called in the
second came a thrilling knockout, Mr.
Acton going down for the count. It was
remarked afterward that it was either a
real knockout or a realistic representation, and as either one or the other it
elicited thunders of applause. Midnight
having been reached the enjoyable
entertainment was soon after brought
to a close.
The orchestra was led by Professor
Gray, assisted by Mr. Babcock, Mr.
Barker, A. J. Gray and Miss Gray.
Drain   Difficulty
Alderman Smith drew attention at
last night's council, to the fact that a
drain passing below the Empress theatre
was evidently requiring attention and
the city engineer promised to proceed
there today along with the buildings
inspector and have the matter seen to. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

CITY OF HIS
OWN CREATION
SIR   WILFRID   WILL   LONG   REMEMBER   HIS  VISIT
Vancouver Newspaper Weakly Endeavors to Make Political Capital
Out of a Non-Political Event That
Was   In   Every   Way   Memorable.
Probably nothing will linger longer in
the memory of Sir Wilfrid Laurier than
his reception at Prince Rupert. A visit
to this new city would be interesting
even if it had not been attended with
spectacular features. But besides the
citizens showed much originality, indulging in conceits which would have
been out of place in an older community. In addition to the original welcome there is the feature that Sir Wilfrid has reached a city which he can-
truly claim as the creation of his own
ministry. Prince Rupert has come into
existence during Sir Wilfrid's premiership. It is there as a result of a measure of his own government. He has
the same right to claim the merit of
creating Prince Rupert as he has to
impose upon his conservative predecessors, the responsibility for Vancouver, Calgary, Moosejaw, Regina, Brandon, Winnipeg, Fort William and other
Canadian Pacific railways cities.���Vancouver  News Advertiser.

THE TRIAL
OF CRIPPEN
NO EMOTIONAL APPEALS TO BE
MADE    TO    JURY
Pursuit, Capture and Trial of Alleged Murder Will Cost Twenty-
Five Thousand Dollars���Costly
Cablegrams   to   Canadian   Police.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 26.���Barrister Newton
who has taken up the defence of Crippen,
says there will be nothing dramatic
in the trial so far as he knows. No
emotional appeals to the jury or anything
of that kind. The fight will be almost
wholly on technicalities, and Mr. Newton
says he is confident of winning.
It is stated that the pursuit, capture
and trial of Dr. Crippen will cost the
taxpayers of London $25,000. Never
before has Scotland Yard spent so much
in the pursuit of any criminal
A large item in 'the Yard's" Crippen bill is the cost of telegrams and
cables giving descriptions of Crippen,
which were sent to many continental,
American and Canadian police headquarters. This item will amount, to
$2500. Twenty-five thousand large
posters, containing descriptions of Crippen
and Miss Leneve with reproductions
of their photographs and handwriting
were scattered broadcast up and down
two continents. Fifty clerks were engaged night and day for a long time in
wrapping, addressing and mailing these
posters.   That will be a costly item.
Then there is the expense of sending Inspector Dew to Canada, and the
expense of another detective and a
wardress who have gone to Quebec to
look after the prisoners on their way
back to England. Then there is the
reward of $1250 which will have to
be paid to Capt. Kendall of the steamship Montrose. There is, too, the cost
of the long coroner's inquest, with
the fees for analytical chemists.
The trial of Crippen will not be very
expensive, nor will it last long. English criminal courts move with swiftness and without technicalities. It is
not expected that Crippen's trial will
consume more than three or four days.
If he is sentenced to death he will
be hanged on the third Monday morning following the day of his conviction. Convicted criminals under a
recent statute have the right of appeal, but the appeal court works swiftly
and like the lower court pays little
attention   to   technicalities.
SENATOR FABRE  SICK
Ha* Been Social Success as Canadian
Commisaioner  to  France
Donald Downie, a magazine writer
of Spokane has been spending some days
in the city and left for New York last
night on the Prince Rupert. He received in the last mail a letter stating
that Hon. Hector Fabre, C. M. G.,
Canadian commissioner to Paris is
very ill. The ex-senator is sixty-six
years of age and has been frail for some
time.
Mr. Downie knew Mr. Fabre in Paris
and saw him there last year. He says
the commissioner has been a social
success in the French metropolis but
has not exerted any great force in
diplomacy. For this it requires a man
of very rich means, and Mr. Downie
hopes the government will appoint such
a man when a vacancy occurs in the
position.

Tribute to Newspapers
Richard Whiteing, author of "No.5
John Street," who recently completed
his seventieth birthday, is still a keen
observer of the questions of the day.
The distinguished journalist pays the
following tribute to the daily press:
"Perhaps the most remarkable feature in the modern newspaper is the
extraordinary variety of news it contains. There is something for every
taste, and the whole is so clearly and
simply written, so full of human nature,
that I can well believe there are many
who require no other literature than the
strange and wonderful narratives of
fact they find in their daily papers."

BLUFF BRITISH SEA DOG
Captain Hand of the Inverkip Gives
Some Harbor Pointers
Captain Hand of the Inverkip now
unloading 6150 tons of cement for
Foley Welch and Stewart at the wharf,
is a sturdy British sea dog of the land
that has made the Old Country supreme
on the seven seas.
A man of ew words, he was nevertheless pleased to welcome the Optimist
on board yesterday and to give his
impressions of the city and harbor.
"The harbor's all fight" he said
but you need more wharfage pretty
soon, and the city itself is most impressive viewed from the harbor or the
heights.
"More lights are needed to facilitate
the approach of vessels from the orient.
The government will need to look to
this within the next year or two if
vessels the size of the Inverkip are
to use the port of Prince Rupert comfortably, and in foggy weather I can tell
you ship captains would be mighty glad
of a few more anchorages around the
entrance, the water is so deep most
of the way."
The Inverkip is manned by Canton
Chinese and the skipper thinks them
good sailors, better, he says, than
Lascars.
The genial Captain's wife is aboard
and was charmed to show the Optimist
her two dinky little Chinese chow dogs
named "Chin" and "Chow". They are
valuable pups, difficult as a rule to
rear, but Mrs. Hand has kept these in
perfect condition and expects to take
them safely home with her.
The Captain himself was too modest
to tell how he had saved the lives of
four Philipinos adrift in Manila Bay in a
water logged boat and nearly starved to
death. Mrs. Hand, however, told the
Optimist how her husband had seen the
half submerged boat from the bridge
while the Inverkip was labouring in a
gale of wind, and how he had skilfully
manoeuvered the big pitching steamer
along side the tiny craft and hauled
the wretched men aboard.
"We warmed and fed them" said
kindly Mr. Hand"and afterwards were
able to transfer them to a steamer which
took them to their home island. Other
steamers must have passed them, and
th'ey were all but hopeless when rescued
by the Inverkip."
Tramway Voted Down
Vanrouver, August 26.���(Special)���
The park board has decided against
the application for a tramway around
Stanley Park, on the ground that they
desire to keep the park in its natural
state as much as possible, and that a
tramway would be an intrusion upon its
charm.

to promote gambling enterprises in
connection with the island of Madeira.

and hotels are to be provided, that
British capital is invested to the extent
of $2,500,000, which the financiers
concerned are ready to double.

This protection is a duty you
owe yourself and those who may
be dependent upon you.
How dare you ignore this danger and go without adequate protection for yourself or family,
against Loss of Time, Total Disablement or Death?
