TWO MILLION FIRE IN VICTORIA'
RAISING GRADE
OF THIRD AVENUE
discussion of proposal by
city council
Stwti, Works and Property Committee Have the Queation Now in
Hand and Will Arrange With
Property Holdera re Waiver*.
The idea for the raising of the grade
of Third avenue between Seventh and
Ninth streets particularly was mentioned by Aid. Lynch at last night's
city council. He said that the raising
of the buildings there was the only
immediate problem, and he expected
that most of the owners would be ready
to do this as the raising of the street
grade was to do the city so much good.
He thought they might go ahead and
raise the grade as the city engineer
could use this fill very satisfactorily, and
further, the raising of the grade would
greatly reduce the need for rock cutting
on Eighth street. He thought at least
13000 would be saved the city by the
work generally, instead of its being an
extra expense, and argued that the
permission of the Lieutanent-Govemor
should be at once applied for to alter
the grade.
Aid. Barrow thought it} might be
advisable to wait a few days and see
about getting waivers of claims for
damages from trie property owners who
might be unwilling to raise their buildings
here.
Aid. Hilditch and Aid. Mobley both
agreed with Aid. Barrow.
Aid. Lynch said that the very most
that any owner could claim here would
be the cost of raising his building, as
the advantages to the district of the
raised grade were obvious.
Aid. Mobley agreed that in point of
��Quity the position was clearly all right,
but thought the legal position should be
made clear too. It would be advisable
to have in writing either waivers of
claims of damages from the owners
here or exact statements in black and
"hite of the amounts of claim made by
those refusing to give waivers.
The Mayor said it could certainly
be well worth the city's while to pay
the price for this work anyway, and
jw a brief discussion regarding the
best manner of setting about the business it was decided on the motion of
Aid. Mobley to leave the matter in the
"ands of the Streets, Works and Property
committee with power to act as they
see fit.

Starts In Department Store of David Spencer Company and
Burns All Around Times Building, Which Miraculously Escapes.-Hotel Driard Scorched.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Oct. 28.���The whole of the
block bounded by Government, Fort and
Broad streets, with the exception of
the Times building and a few small
shacks, is a smouldering mass of ruins.
The total loss is estimated at nearly two
millions.
The fire started in the Spencer's department store, the largest store in the
city, at about a quarter before eleven
last night and was a' raging furnace
in a very few minutes. By midnight
it threatened to wipe out the entire
business section. The whole of the fire
brigade was on hand promptly and in
addition the military and all the men
at the artillery garrison were called out.
By midnight every business man
within two blocks was strenuously
engaged in moving his office furniture,
every conceivable vehicle being pressed
into the service, many of them boldly
commandeered.
How the Times building escaped,
seeing that the burning department
store surrounded it, is remarkable.
That famous coast hostelry The Driad
was scorched badly. Its guests tumbled
out into the streets in their night clothes
as soon as the fire started. All their
personal and  other effects were  piled
along the street, a detachment of the
military being assigned to guard them
from pilferers.
Several spectators were shocked by
live wires. At midnight all the power
was shut off, but the glare of the conflagration lit up the whole city. It
is estimated that twenty thousand
people watched the efforts of the fire
fighters. The wind was so high that
glowing embers were carried over five
blocks. Amateur bucket brigades were
on the alert, however, and quenched
the incipient blazes started by these
embers.
Fire Chief Reeves was badly hurt
and also four firemen received injuries.
PRINTING ON
CITY BY-LAWS
REGARDING ERECTION OF NEW
BUILDINGS
Need for These By-lawa Being Printed
Ia Considered Urgent Though Coat
of Work la Regarded aa an Obstacle
���Matter Diacuased in Council.
IS BELLE ELMORE DEAD?
Baais of the Appeal Made by Dr. Crip-
pen'a  Attorneys  Against  Death
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Oct. 28.���The attorneys for
Dr. Crippen today applied to the court
of criminal appeal for a new trial, alleging that the crown had failed to establish the fact that Belle Elmore was
dead.
MUe. Le Neve has been offered a
thousand pounds by a London newspaper for the story of her life.
The Sheffield Daily Telegraph has
been fined one hundred pounds for
contempt of court in connection with the
trial of Crippen.
KILLED AT WHARF
A workman, employed on the G.T.P.
new wharf construction was killed
about 3.30 this afternoon. He was
squeezed by a pile and died on the way
to the hospital.
THE VICTORIA FIRE
Driard Hotel Losses Will Be in Neighborhood of Thirty Thouaand
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Oct. 28.-2 p.m.���Firemen
are now busy dynamiting the ruins of the
Government street block and clearing
off the debris although the bricks are not
yet cool. Tne damage is still to held to
be well over the million dollar mark.
All the papers were lost in the burning
of the fire underwriters' offices, and it
will therefore be some time before the
claims can be adjusted.
The Times office, although all the
surrounding buildings were burned down,
was only damaged by water. It is
hoped that the plant will again be
running in the course of next week.
The Driard hotel losses will be in the
neighborhood of thirty thousand dollars.
CITY   LAUNCH   STORM   STAYED
Over at Porcher Island on Lighting
Business
Mr. Burns, of the city engineer's department, went over this week to
Porcher island with the city launch to
see how the work is getting on in connection with the supply of poles for the
electric lighting plant.
The stormy weather has probably
hindered his return, as the wind is
against the launch on the homeward
journey. No doubt the launch is
sheltering somewhere until the weather
improves.
Threatening Times in  Egypt
London, Oct. 28.���(Special)���Disquieting news from Egypt is beginning to
come in and an order was issued this
morning for the cancellation of all
leave to British officers on service there.
It is rumored that General Wingate
will succeed Sir Eldon Gorst as sirdar.
WINNER IN BALLOON RACE
America II Descends In Wilds of Northern Quebec In International Race From
St. Louis and Is Awarded James Gordon Bennett Cup.���Other
Aviators Who Landed on the Canadian Side.
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, Oct. 28.���The balloon America II safely landed last night in North
Quebec, and has won the long distance
race from St. Louis. It was driven by
Messrs. Allan ti. Hawley and August
Post, both society men of New York.
The remainder of the ten balloons
which started in this great race from St.
Louis on the 17th had been accounted
for by the 22nd. Nothing having been
heard of the America since her ascension
there were fears that it had been lost
and an expedition was sent out by the
American Aero club to search for it.
Quite a number of the contestants
landed in Canada, and one of them, the
Helvetia, driven by Colonel Theodore
Schaeek--.' which; landed at Vllle Marie,
Quebee�� on the 20th, was believed to
btj the winner, this being 1,100 miles
irtheSst of St. Louis.   The Germania,
driven by Captain von Abercron and
August Blankertz, landed at La Tuque,
Quebec.
These balloonists met a hurricane after
they left St. Louis, losing sight of all
their companion balloons. The gale
carried them along at the rate of sixty
miles an hour for a day and night.
Battered until they could hardly endure
it, they were in a pitiful condition
when they struck the line of the National
Transcontinental in Northern Quebec.
They followed the railroad until Wednesday evening. Then seeing they were
travelling away from human habitations,
they descended. It was a bitter fight
through the bush to the railway track.
A construction train took them to La
Tuque, where they recuperated. Upon
arrival at Montreal these gentlemen
also felt pretty confident of having won
the prize.
The balloon Dusseldorf II, a German
entry in the international race for the
Gordon Bennett cup, came to earth near
Kiskisink, Quebec, which is 120 miles
north of Quebec city and 1060 miles
from St. Louis. Thc Germania, by
landing at Coccoo Cache, Quebec, 1200
miles from St. Louis, was in the opinion
of most aeronauts the certain winner.
It will probably prove to be the second
in the race.
The French aeronaut Alfred Le Blanc,
who finished second in the race for the
Bennett cup in 1907, was this year the
pilot of the Isle de France. He descended near Pogomasing, Ont., and
was the fourth of the contestants to
alight. At Pogamasing he was within 148
miles of the American record of 873
miles set by John Wise in 1895 and
within 468 miles of the world'B record
of 1,193 miles set in 1900 by Comte
Henri de la Vauix.
At last night's city council meeting
Aid. Pattullo referred to the proposal
that the Building By-laws should be
printed for the convenience of architects
and contractors who have to refer to
these. He said that he doubted if the
funds at the disposal of the Finance
committee warranted the outlay for
printing, and suggested that the matter
be shelved till next spring.
Aid. Hilditch spoke on the subject
stating the difficulty before architects
and builders who have not enough
opportuntiy for consulting these by-laws
when planning on building new houses,
etc.
Aid. Lynch supported Aid. Hilditch,
suggesting that printers be approached
to see how economically this bit of work
could be done. He believed that ad->-
vertiseraunts might be printed with
the by-law matter thus making the
printing more profitable. He had seen
such a method adopted before. The
advertisements were chiefly for building
material.
The Mayor felt with Aid. Pattullo
that the building business was not
likely to be so brisk during the winter,
and in view of the fact that the cost
of printing the by-laws would be a tax
on general fund thought it advisable
to wait till spring.
Aid. Pattullo remarked that if the
need for this printing were really so
urgent it was up to the Finance committee to try and have it done but owing
to the present heavy strain on the
general fund, he thought it still advisable
to wait.
Aid. Lynch said that it was usually
taken for granted that architects were
versed in the terms of the by-laws -
regarding building, but this was not
always so. He said that there was a big
demand for houses in the city already
and owing to the large numbers of
workmen they would have here this
winter many more houses would be
wanted. These small houses were just
the class of houses liable to be put
up with errors against the by-law
terms, and therefore the need for the
printing of the by-laws was urgent.
Aid. Pattullo remarking that the
power of Aid. Lynch's arguments was
persuasive, said he felt now that it was
advisable that the Finance committee
should consider this printing of the
by-laws more closely.
Aid. Barrow spoke in favor of this,
suggesting that the job might be undertaken as a private enterprise, and Aid.
Hilditch supported this view.

THE PRODUCE OF
NORTHERN B. C.
FINE   VEGETABLES   AND   FIELD
CROPS ON VIEW
At Thos. McClymont'a New Premises
on Third Avenue. Brought From
Telegraph Creek on Stikine River
With Excellent Photos.
In the window of Mr. Thomas Mc-
Clymont's new real estate premises on
Third avenue, there is an exhibit of
really excellent vegetables grown in the
neighborhood of Telegraph Creek on the
Stikine river which point is away up
nearly on the 58th parallel north.
To those who imagine that Northern
British Columbia is a land of rocks and
dreary wastes of trees with glaciers and
boulder strewn mountain sides, nothing
could be more agreeably surprising and
convincing than to find that this is on
the contrary a fair and fertile land of
plain and valley rich in agricultural
possibility on every hand.
Besides the fine turnips, celery, radishes, carrots, and cabbages grown in
this district beautiful wheat is shown in
Mr. McClymont's window from the
same place, also oats, and splendid
potatoes. Potatoes have, in fact, been
grown up there for over five and twenty
years now.
This vegetable exhibit was brought
down to Prince Rupert by Messrs.
Wilford and Philip Macdonald as a set
of samples of what can be done in
Northern British Columbia with the
soil under tillage.
Some splendid photographs are also
in Mr. McClymont's hands showing
the land under cultivation there, the
flat fertile acreages, and sunny slopes
with the distant mountain background���
scenes like the tempting dairy farming
pictures of the valleys of Switzerland
only so much more expansive and roomy.
One photograph of a broad hay field
being harvested is particularly interesting
as off this very field the farmer working
it cleared magnificent crops of hay by
the ton this season.
WINES AND LIQUORS
For Thankgsiving Festivities at the

The immense shipment of wines,
liquors and beers that Clarke Bros., received this week will afford a splendid
opportunity for securing your favorite
drink for Thanksgiving festivities. Liquid
refreshments at dinner time are an
essential. A glass of Budweiser before
your meal and a glass of choice liqueur
after the turkey makes a man feel contented and thankful. It was with this
idea in view that Clarke Bros, had their
big stock arrive at this time. They

ATTELL GETTING RICH
Featherweight Champion Continues
to Pick up Eaay Money
As far as making money goes, Abe
Attell has all other stars of the roped
arena beaten. There is no one deemed
worthy of a match with Jack Johnson,
Ad. Wolgast is out of the game for a
while with a broken arm, and Battling
Nelson, try as he can, is still hankering for a chance to win back the title.
The "Gheto Kid," is the wise boy, for
knowing that he has but a few more
years as champion, and that he is growing old, is raking in the spondulicks
while the sun shines. Indeed it would
be hard to find a busier person than
this same Abe.
The champion of all champions���for
he surely has earned that title since
Joe Gans no longer plays the part-
admitted a short time ago that he was
starting a campaign of extermination
of featherweight titie seekers. He put
the White boys to the bad. First he
bested Charlie in Milwaukee, then he
licked Frankie and later Jack was his
victim in Winnipeg.

FOREST FIRE DAMAGES
Lumberman   Suing   Railway   Company for Quarter Million
Nelson, Oct. 24.���A. E. Watts of
Wattsburg and Proctor, lumberman,
owner of timber limits and fruit lands
seems likely to occupy a large proportion
of the time of the justice who will preside at the winter sittings of the supreme
court in Nelson. Mr. Watts is entering
the courts with his usual enthusiasm, and
vim and intendB to conduct all his
cases, of which there are seven, personally. For the past three weeks he
has been spending much time in the
offices of Registrar T. M. Bowman,
conducting examinations for discovery
of different witnesses in the seven cases
he hopes to have decided in December.
In all he is suing in different actions
for damages amounting to a total of
over a quarter of a million dollars. The
most important of these cases is a suit
for $103,000, which he is bringing
against the C. P. R. for timber destroyed in fires near Wattsburg last summer
which be alleges were caused by that
company's employees or engines.

TO REBUILD CANNERY
Fifty Per Cent of Kaaaan Pack Saved
After Fire
Mr. L. J. Gorman, proprietor of the
Kassan cannery property, came up from
Seattle a few days ago in company
with Mr. Mills, the insurance adjuster,
and since that time they have been
engaged in adjusting the loss to the
property which burned recently.
Fifty per cent of the pack will be saved
as it is being brought to Ketchikan and
stored in the cannery here, while houses
have been built for the Chinamen who
will come over today to laquer and relabel the cans. The Vigilant, towing the
scow Blanch, has been engaged for the
past few days in transferring the salmon
to this place. Mr. Gorman informs
the Miner that after leaving here he
intends to go east for a few weeks and
upon his return he will arrange to rebuild the plant at Kasaan and it is his
intention to put up a modern two line
cannery with the latest improved machinery. The work to be completed for
business the coming season.���Ketchikan

THE EAST ON ASIA TICS
The Toronto Star which has frequently dealt with the Asiatic labor question
and has strenuously supported the exclusion of that undesirable element from
Canada, recently contained a letter form a reader which deals with the other side
of the question. This letter has attracted the attention of the press of the East.
It is quoted here in part:
"I can hardly bear to write calmly of the stupidity, as I see it, of the action
of the Government of British Columbia in refusing the application of the trans-
- continental railways to be allowed to bring to Canada through that colony, the
laborers from East India so much needed in hurrying forward the construction
of those great arteries of commerce between the East and West. Why should
those great public works be compelled to put up with the limited supply of labor
which they can obtain from the small-sized Italians at a high price, when our
gigantic, brawny, fellow-subjects from Northern India are willing to lend us their
aid in turning our rocky and thickly timbered back country into a land of plenty
in half the time it will take with the present dearth of labor? This generation of
Canadians will have passed away before the second and third transcontinental
lines will have been able to construct their projected double-tracks through from
ocean to ocean. What wickedness to thus prolong the condition of arid waste
in which so great a portion of North America has heretofore existed, and to sacrifice
the valuable lives of so many hundreds of pushing Canadian business men, who
will be cut off almost by wholesale for want of double tracks, and of wide steel
bridges, and through scarcity of nearby villages and of demical men to render
'first aid.'
"How is it possible, with the present limited supply of labor, to build the many
branches those transcontinental will need, and at the same time construct a fourth
one through that wonderful Peace River country, and push forward the two great
Hudson Bay lines, even with a single track, not to mention the imminent new
Welland Canal, and the already ordered deepening of the St. Lawrence river?
"Our rhildren and the children of those emigrants who have settled down in
Canada will never handle a pick or a shovel in the construction of these great
beneficial works, even if they are never built. They are at school, getting an education to fit them for becoming time-keepers, engineers, editors, draftsmen, school
teachers, reporters, telegraph operators, electricians, railroad officers, vessel owners,
contractors, clergymen, missionaires, manufacturers, and millionaires. It is perfect
nonsense to expect that they are going to engage in manual labor or any sort except
in an educational way. We must continue to import the laborers, and how more
conveniently than from the British dominions in Asia, across the Pacific Ocean
to Victoria, Vancouver, or Prince Rupert."
ooooo
The Toronto Globe replies to the letter comparing the danger of Asiatic invasion
with the race problem of the negro in the United States:
"In this one can almost hear again the arguments that led to the introduction
of the African negro into the Virginia plantations. It was hard work growing
tobacco with labor so scarce. To open up the back country would be a slow process.
The negro was brought in, and it is not unlikely that there was promise to re-export
him 'after serving us for five or six years.' Today the greatest race problem that
has ever confronted mankind is before the prople of the United States as a result
of their haste in nation-building. It will perhaps take another century to determine
whether or not the Southern States are ultimately to become a black man's country,
but already the negro question has cost a great war and the shedding of much, blood
and many tears.
"It may be said that the yellow man and the brown man on the Pacific slope
will never multiply as the nergo has done in the South, and that no peril to the
principle of a white man's Canada is involved in admitting several thousand Oriental
laborers, alien in speach, customs, and ideals. How can we be sure of that? The
Jap and the Chinamen and the Punjaubee are not fools. They know the land of
promise when they see it just as quickly as the Russian Jew. The Chinese quarters
of Victoria and Vancouver are swarmimg with almon-eyed children. Why should
not a fresh invasion, even supposedly a temporary one, give ' us like permanent
Oriental settlements in Calgary and Edmonton and Winnipeg, and the great cities
of the East?   There is only one way of safety.    Keep the door shut.
"Canada is not an old man in a hurry who must make haste because the long
night cometh. The nation is but in its opening manhood. There are centuries of
progress before it. Far better will it be to build slowly and to build well, even
if we of this generation can but lay the foundation, than in a frenzy of unnecessary
haste introduce men and women from Asia who may be as gerat a menace to the
Anglo-Saxon on the Pacific as the negro is in the South. The Globe finds no wickedness but much to commend in the action of those in authority who labor to maintain
barriers against the peopling of the Pacific coast from the Orient."
SECTION ONE GRADING
Tenders to Be Called for Rest of Thia
Work
The report presented by the Streets
committee at last night's city council
meeting embodied a number of recommendations, the principal one being that
tenders be called fcr the remainder of
the work in Section One. This was
adopted.
The report further recommended that
tenders be called for the proposed improvements on Eighth avenue from
McBride street to the intersection of
Hays Cove Circle with Eighth avenue;
and that the necessary advertising be
done in connection with various proposed
plankways.
W. G. Humble's petition for leave to
construct a plankway to his lots on
Sixth avenue was granted subject to the
approval of the city engineer.
In connection with the petition for a
sidewalk on Alfred street it was recommended that the plank in the vicinity
of Alfred street be sold to the petitioners
at $10 per thousand so that the assessment in payment of construction be
for one year only and that the necessary
advertising be done.

Northern B. C. Liquor Co. Taken
Over by F. H. Worlock���Frank
Clapp Temporary Manager���He
Will Erect a Second Warehouae.
F. H. Worlock has returned to Victoria to resume his duries as manager
of the Phoenix Brewery for a short time
longer. Mr. Worlock was in Prince
Rupert for a week on ten days and during
that time he completed a deal whereby
he takes over the license of the Northern
B. C. Liquor Co., which was granted a
short time ago to a local syndicate.
Mr. Worlock has leased the frame
warehouse occupied by the Crown
Bottling Works, and will carry his stock
there until such time as Mr. Clapp can
erect another stone warehouse. The
work on the new building has already
started. The foundation is being blasted
out and everything will be in readiness
for the spring. Mr Clapp has also
been engaged as manager of the new
liquor firm until such time as Mr.
Worlock can arrange to move here
which will not be until after the new
year.
A supply of wines and liquors is now
on the way to Prince Rupert for this
firm and next week they will be ready
to do business.
PREPARE FOR PREMIER
City Council  Will Have  Battery of
Demands Ready for Him
The city council will meet at eight
p.m. next Tuesday to put their heads
together on the various questions they
intend to ask Premier McBride when he
meets with the council.
All the aldermen are to consider in
the meantime the possible points likely
to come up, and these will be gone over
and put in order on Tuesday so that
nothing may be overlooked while the
Premier is no the spot.
FORTY SPARE POLES
Too Short for Lights Transferred to
'Phone Department
A report by the Telephone and Light
committee in reference to the transfer
from the lighting plant of some 40 or
50 small poles to that of the telephone
department was explained by Aid.
Mobley last night. The poles, he said,
were too small for the lighting plant,
but Mr. E. Love, the telephone department's manager, could make use of
them as reserve poles to replace any
burnt out or otherwise damaged.

J. McAgee Charged With Vagrancy It

J. McAgee a haggard looking man who
is being detained on a vagarancy charge
pending observation by the doctor
appeared before Magistrate Carss this
morning. He seemed nervous and
excited* and wanted things hurried up
and done with. But the Magistrate and
Chief of Police were agreed that the
poor fellow's condition necessitates his
being cared for rather than allowed to
wander much longer, and he was remanded till Tuesday.
Mayor Will Write
It was agreed at last night's city council
meeting that the Mayor should write
to the secretary of the B. C. Assocaiation
of Municipalities explaining that the
city is not at present prepared to send

CATHOLIC BAZAAR
Contest  For  Magnificent  Cane   Invented by J. Fred Ritchie

under the efficient leadership of Mrs. J.
F. Ritchie, will hold a bazaar on Friday,
November 4th, opening at 3 p.m. and
closing at 11 p.m.
Hustle, hustle, rustle to our Bazaar!
Attractive display of many fancy and
useful articles donated by Catholic
ladies and non-Catholic friends; delicious refreshments; good musical program; fishing pond; raffle; popularity
contest; all winding up in a dance.
Don't miss to come; there will be
barrels of fun for old and young.
Have a look at the charming bridesmaid doll beautifully dressed exhibited
at Miss Barbeau's millinery store. A
gilt-edge opportunity for the lucky
individual to win a doll which will
make the delight of any girl.
A novel and lively feature at the
Bazaar will be the voting contest, at ten
cents a vote, between Mayor Stork and
Aid. Vernor Smith. The most popular
candidate will be presented with a
magnificent $75 gold-headed cane. Go
and see it exhibited at Keeley's drug
store.   It is a beauty.
The many friends of both candidates
who so gracefully accepted, are preparing to make this contest a lively one.
Join right in!   It will be good.

i MINING NOTES
���""-at
(THE SKEENA
Two of the Harris brothers were in
town from their claims recently located
on Nine Mile mountain, at the head of j
Two Mile creek, and brought some fine
samples of ore from the property, says
the Omineca Herald. Three veins have
been uncovered on the surface and,
altogether, about five hundred feet of
stripping has been done. Every vein
shows good ore. The showings vary in
width from eighteen inches to five feet
and in some places the ore is solid
galena.
There are six claims in the one group,
reaching from the lake at the head of
Two Mile, up the hill to the ridge
between it and Four Mile creek.
Several mining men have visited
the claims recently and all unite in a
favorable opinion as to the worth of
the proposition. The veins cut directly
across the formation and are nearly
straight up and down. Assays from
surface ore yielded 140 ounces in silver,
60 per cent lead and a small percentage
in copper. Not all of the ore is of this
grade and much of it would require
concentrating. One vein shows a shoot
of solid galena nearly two feet wide.
It is the intention to continue working
all winter.
FROM AMONG
RIVER CAMPS
���"""���~"-��-~��-~4S
Work on the Lead King
F. A. Brown, superintendent of the
Lead King on Nine Mile, reports that
everything is in first class shape for a
long winter's work. Provisions, tools
and powder enough to last five or six
men all winter have been laid down at
the cabins. The tunnel is going ahead
at a good rate, being driven on ore.
Brown stopped at the Harris brothers'
claims on his way down the mountain
and says he considered the showing a
winner. They have done a remarkably
large amount of work in the last month
and have the veins stripped for several
hundred feet, showing ore all the way.
Doing Surface Stripping
Surface stripping and trenching is
going ahead under the direction of Wm.
Dalton, foreman, on the galena vein
on the east side of Four Mile hill. Much
good ore has already been uncovered.
Surface water flowing into the cut from
the deep over-burden has necessitated
digging a long drain which will not be
completed for a few days.
Supplies for Nine Mile
Supplies are being packed from Hazelton to Nine Mile for the Silver Cup and
Lead King mines. About ten tons will
be needed for the Cup and all but about
two tons has been sent and this is to be
hurried as a heavy fall of snow may
come at any time on the upper end of
the trail.
Frank Brown is hustling to get the
supplies for the .Lead King away.
About eight tons will last the Lead King
miners until spring.
Steamer Hazelton Gives Dance
Captain Gardener and officers of the
steamer Hazelton last week entertained
the townspeople at the Omineca hotel,
giving a dance and supper that was in
every way worthy to be classed as out
of the ordinary in this part of the
country. The large dining room was
cleared for the dancers and by a lucky
chance C. B. Wark, the Prince Rupert
jeweler, and a commercial traveler,
happened to be in town and furnished
music exceptionally good. A large
attendance filled the big room and a
noticeable feature was the number of
new faces, especially among the ladies.
An elaborate supper was served about
midnight and following that dancing
was resumed until three o'clock in the
morning.
Hazelton Eagles Gathering
The lodge of Eagles, now in process
of being formed at Hazelton, is quite
likely to build their own building, to be
used for social gatherings as well as
lodge purposes. Dr. Slocum, organizer
for the order, has made informal arrangements for a site and has discussed
plans with a number of leading spirits.
Nothing definite can be determined,
according to the doctor, until after the
lodge is instituted and there is a full
discussion of the matter among the
members. The site proposed is on the
Cunninhgam property, back of the store.
The building would most likely be two
stories high, the ground floor to be
rented for business purposes.

Explains Bouraasa'a Position
If it is true that "happy is the country
whose annals are not glorious," Canada
must be in the zenith of happiness,
for the dearth of domestic news of even
common interest is extraordinary. Every
one seems to be too busy to make news
worth talking about. There is not even
a half-way exciting political yarn afloat.
The result is that Mr. Bourassa has been
much in the limelight. If there were
real news going, he would not have received anything like the advertising he
has been getting.���Victoria Times.

Faith of a Windsor Man
A Windsor man's faith in human
nature, particularly that part of it
represented by the opposite sex, received a rude jolt last week. He was
on his way to Kansas City to be married, accompanied by the bride-to-be,
and stopped off at Chicago between
trains. He went out to get shaved,
and at the bride's expectant suggestion, left his money, $1700, with her
until he returned. When he returned
money and bride were both missing.
The only consolation left him is the
world's record for the most expensive
shave.

MORE BUFFALO
FOR THE PARK
TWENTY-NINE HEAD SHIPPED TO
WAINWRIGHT
Round-up in Montana Waa Difficult
and Dangerous Proceedings���Several Men Having Narrow Escapes
From Death.
Missoula, Mont., Oct. 24.���The second
shipment of boffalo from Pablo's buffalo
ranch on the Flathead reservation has
left Ravalli consigned to the Canadian
government, and in the charge of two
government guards. This shipment
consists of twenty-nine head of buffalo
and was sent to Wainwright, Alta., which
is near where the Canadian national
park is located.
The rounding-up of the buffalo was
a hard and dangerous task, as several
of the outlaw bulls proved very irritable and gave several men narrow escapes
from death. James Lacazar narrowly
escaped a horrible death, when one of
the bulls charged his horse and gored
it before Lacazar could turn to avoid
the rush. Lacazar was knocked from
his horse and the bull rushed at him.
Three times he managed to dodge
the rush of the bull and finally reached
a tree, which he ascended after avoiding
a rush that sent the bull some distance
past him.
The animals were brought into Ravalli, where they were loaded on Northern
Pacific cars and will go first to Kallispel,
and then on to the Great Northern
tracks to their destination. They were
put in frame wagons about fifteen feet
long, constructed of heavy timber. The
wagons did not allow the buffalo much
play and proved a successful method
of transporting them. Several buffalo
became so hard to control that it was
decided to leave them on the reservation,
where they will be slaughtered.
The herd consisted mainly of cows and
calves.
TO LICK THE EDITOR
Long Lost Brother Had Lots of Fun
in Attempt
An editor can usually take a joke
as well as anybody, but there are times
during the rush of business when he
is apt to miss the point of the joke.
Such an instance happened out in
Vancouver a number of years ago, which
happened seriously for the joker, says
the Saturday Mail. The joker in
question happened to be the editor's
own brother, whom he hadn't seen for
ten years. He came to surprise his
brother and to pay him a visit, and,
being more or less given to practical
joking, he determined to visit his brother
in the guise of the "feller that wants to
lick the editor."
He was a big strapping man, well
fitted to enact such a part, and when
he forced his way into the editor's
private office he had his hat pulled
down over his eyes and a cigar elevated
at an angle of forty-five degrees, giving
him an appearance of terrible ferocity.
"Is this the editor?" he asked as he
faced his brother.
"It is.  What can I do for you?"
"Nothing," replied the fierce-looking
man. "It's me what wants to do for
you. Are you prepared to take a good
licking?"
"Delighted, I'm sure," replied the
editor, and with this he picked up a
heavy picture block and slammed it
into the visitor's face, knocking him
under the table. The foreman in the
composing room had a roller in his
hand at the time and hearing a strange
noise in the office came running in just
in time to stand on the strange man's
chest, give him a kick on the jaw and
run the roller over his face.
When the man came to his senses
he explained his little joke, disclosing
his identity. It took some time to
get the ink off his face and, barring
a piece of his ear. that was missing
where the stereo glanced" ftff his head,
he was soon all right and in good fettle
for the drank which (no doubt) followed.

BOYS NEED MORE CARE
One Who Got Into Trouble Recently
Had Little Home Life
The bad effect upon a young boy of
the lack of kindly home conditions was
brought out yesterday when Judge
Young examined the two lads who had
got into trouble over breaking into a
cabin across the bay the other day.
One of the boys is a big fellow, the
other small for his age but bright looking
and wiry. Both are only just over
sixteen. The bigger boy has been exerting a bad influence generally recently
over several groups of boys in Prince
Rupert, and has been under detention
for taking a gun before.
The little chap was quite frank and
intelligent in his answers to the Judge's
questions yesterday. He said he had
been living by himself in a cabin while
his father was away up country staking
land. He used to write to his father
when he needed money and gave his
father's address so that he might be
communicated with. Evidently the
lack of proper home life had had an
ill effect on the lad, and the Chief of
Police thinks that taken in hand properly
now he will become a straight enough
man yet.
The bigger fellow was far less frank
and agreeable before the Judge. He
did not seem to realize the gravity of
his position and sniggered at the idea
of being made a manlier fellow.
Judge Young whose treatment of
both boys was a justly calculated combination of firmness and consideration
administered a stern rebuke to the
lad for laughing, but said that until
it was proved that he was actually
guilty he would refrain from any further
reprimand. The lad is in a rather
reckless mood evidently without dis-
pylaing many outward signs of it.
He said his father had forbidden him
the house once, and that had made him
stay away for good.
This one sign of decency in the boy's
curt replies to the questioning was his
statement that his mother had been
kind to him. Otherwise, he was hard,
and silently defiant.
As reported briefly in yesterday's issue
Judge Young has adjourned the case
while the boys' parents are being communicated with.
THE BIG FILL
On Second Avenue at S. H. Watson's
Contract End
Aid. Mobley asked at last night's
council meeting why the big dump at
the end of S. H. Watson's grading
contract could not be filled now. He
understood that S. H.  Watson would
have about 10,000 yards of material
in excess of his dumping space on the
contract and wondered why the big
dump should be kept open still.
Aid. Lynch said this was a matter for
the city engineer to explain, but he
believed that the matter depended on
the intention of the G. T. P. to have
an overhead bridge there and the tracks
below.
The Mayor said that if the contractor
here had a 10,000 yard surplus of
material over fill it might be advisable
for the city engineer to communicate
with the G. T. P. on the matter of this
big dumping space.
Aid. Pattullo said he believed a number
of lot holders in that district were
counting on trackage adjoining their
lots, and these people's interests would
be affected by a solid fill here.
Small Accounts Oodered Paid
A report from the Finance committee
recommending the payment of one or
two small accounts was adopted at last
night's city council meeting and the
accounts passed for payment, on the
motion of Aid. Pattullo.

Hazelton Unable to Leave Becauae of
the Heavy Storms
The stage of water on the Skeena, as
recorded this morning, is thirty-four
inches below zero, in despite of the
heavy rains. No matter how heavy it
may rain in Prince Rupert it does not
appear to affect the river much, but the
weather seems to be moderating in the
interior, with less frost and a tendency
to turn from snowing to raining. This
may help a little.
The Port Simpson reached Kitselas
all right and at half past eight this
morning started to return. After she
gets here she will probably be tied up
for the winter. The Inlander is still
on her way to Hazelton and appears
to be making good progress. The
Hazelton, which was to leave this port
yesterday morning, was held back by
the high winds, and was still here this
morning.
