SECOND AVENUE
GRADING WORK
McMORDIE'S tenders  accepted FOR THREE SECTIONS
Council Discuss Question of Sewers
To Be Put in By City.���Some
Aldermen Anxious That This Work
Should  Be Done Before Grading.
At last night's city council meeting
the streets, works and property committee
presented their report regarding the
tenders for the work of grading on
Second avenue. The following are the
tenders accepted. Section one, S. H.
Watson & Co., $29,134. Section two,
S. P. MeMordie & Co., $12,335, Section
three S. P. MeMordie & Co., $29,718.
.Saaction four S. P. MeMordie & Co.,
$42,391.
The committise recommended that the
tenders of S. P. MeMordie & Co., be
accepted on the understanding that the
work should be done taking rock in the
proportion as given in Mc Mordie's
tenders and not in the proportion of 80
per cent rock and 20 per cent earth as
figured in the tender of S. H. Watson & Co
The City Engineer also reported regarding the construction of sewers where
these had not been put in by the Government or G. T. P. and recommended that
sewer pipe sufficient for the work should
be ordered now in order to avoid delay
when the work actually commenced on
account of non delivery of pipe.
Aid. Pattullo thought that the council
should not rush at the purchase of sewer
pipes nor go too hurriedly into the construction of these sewers. He thought it
would be necessary to pass a by law before proceeding with the matter. It
would be a cheaper business for the city
to have the sewers constructed before
the grading was done on streets on the
line of the sewers and Aid. Pattullo
thought that if the contracts were signed
up for that part of the work and it was
then proposed to undertake the sewers
the council might find itself in a pretty
bad box. "We must ascertain what this
sewer work is to cost and provide means
for paying for it" he said.
Aid. Mobley moved that the Streets
Committee's report be adopted. "The
contracts need not be signed for a day or
two" he said "and meanwhile the council
could ascertain the views of the people
regarding these sewers." Aid. Naden
seconded.
Aid. Hilditch thought it would take
too long���probably from thirty to
fifty days to ascertain the people's
mind in the matter. "Does this mean
that the signing of the contracts is to
be delayed so long?" he asked.
Aid. Mobley said that he had merely
the financial aspect of the matted in
view. It was not wise, he thought, to
jump into things till they were sure how
they stood.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the grading of Second avenue might be proceeded with for the distance already
provided with sewers, during which
time the views of the people could be
ascertained.
Aid. Hilditch thought that the matter
had been before the city long enough,
and that the grading should proceed
no matter if the sewer work later were
a little more costly.
Aid. Lynch stated that it would be
three rnonths before the sewer work
would be actually needed, and the mayor
is view of this thought the grading should
go right ahead, but Aid. Pattullo again
considered the matter of the possible
extra cost to the city of sewer work
after grading, and said that he did not
feel like entering into a contract unless
the   city   was   prepared   to  pay   that
additional money.
Aid. Lynch said that the biggest
half of the job was the part before the
sewers were required, and that therewas
ample time to consider the matter while
the grading was in progress. The quicker
this work was done the better and cheaper
it would be. He moved that the Street
Committee's report be adopted.
Aid. Naden seconded on the under-
stand'ng that the contracts would be
signed as soon as the necessary financial
arrangements had been made, and the
motion was carried.
The council then proceeded to talk
over the matter of the ordering of the
sewer pipes in advance as recommended
by the city engineer.
Aid Hilditch was in favor of the
report's being accepted and the pipes
ordered, but Aid. Naden thought only a
small portion of the pipes should be
ordered at first "We ought to go as
slowly as possible with this" he said.
"Before all that pipe is brought I'd
like to see how the whole matter of

TWO KILLED
AUTO RIDING
MIDNIGHT PARTY MEETS WITH
DIRE   ACCIDENT
Four Prominent People Out Joy-
Riding Which Results in Two
Being Instantaneously Killed and
Other  Two   Fatally   Injured.
(Special to the Optimist)
Tacoma, Sep. 6.���A fearful automobile accident occurred on the Puy-
allup road near midnight, which resulted in two of the party being killed
and two others severely injured. There
was a party of four in the machine, and
after making a sharp turn in he road
to avoid a milk wagon one of the front
tires burst and the auto was thrown into
the ditch, and turned over on top of the
inmates.
Edward Parry of Tacoma and Miss
Gertrude, of Seattle, were instantly
killed, and Frank Hunter, manager of
the Tacoma Motor Car company and
Mrs. Pearly Raymond of Seattle were
badly injured. Hunter is internally
injured and it is feared that he may not
recover. All the ribs on one side of Mrs.
Raymond's body were broken, and the
two now lie in the Tacoma hospital nigh
to death.
The two women were daughters of
the Mr. Kirkman, owner of the Sheet
Metal works of Fremont, a suburb of
Seattle.
KILLED BY DEAD TREE
Mr. Klvet of Bella Coola Meets With
a Fatal Accident
Sunday being the Monday of the
Seventh Day Adventists, a Mr. Kivet of
Bella Coola was that day raking hay in
his field with a strong westerly breeze
blowing. A huge cottonwood tree killed
by fire some years ago suddenly snapped
and unable to get beyond the danger
radius he and his horse were instantly
impaled by its falling branches and
mangled beyond recognition. Mr. Kivet
leaves a wife and family and was much
respected by all members of the community, i

HAYS' LETTER
TO THE MAYOR
MR. CHAMBERLAIN'S REPLY TO
TOM  DUNN'S TELEGRAM
Up to Citizens' Committee to formulate Proposition in Terms of
Letters of Mr. Hays to City Council
Which Have Not Been Produced.
Matters are moving in connection
with the G. T. P. assessment problem
and its adjustment. A telegram was
received yesterday by Tom Dunn from
Mr. Chamberlain to the following
effect:
Mr. Chamberlain suggested that the
citizens committee should formulate
a proposition in accordance with President Hays' letter to the mayor and
council and submit it.
Asked by the Optimist what he proposed to do now that communication
had been established and negotiations
begun in the matter Thos. Dunn said
simply that he had put the wheels in
motion for a meeting of the Board of
Trade as speedily as possible to consider the assessment.
"Afterwards" said Mr. Dunn "the
city council may deal with the matter
again. I do not know. Much depends
on the result of the Board of Trade
meeting."
P. I. Palmer thought it strange that
the city council should have remained
so secretive as to the fact that they had
actually a letter or letters from C. M.
Hays amounting to something like a
proposition, or at least indicating the
sort of proposition he would entertain.
"There was no need for such secrecy"
said Mr. Palmer. "Now a good deal
hinges on the purport of those metters
and what I would suggest is that we
have another meeting of the business men
of the city in order to request the council
to produce and read those letters to us.
Then we shall know what sort of proposition Mr. Hays expects or suggests.
"But as citizens we wish to act through
our own city council as much as possible,
and the city's interests. It is no part
of our plan to act without the council
as long as the council will act for our
interests in a manner approved by the
citizens  and  business  men  generally".
SIGNIFICANT   FACT
EARL GREY ON
JOURNEY HOME
GOVERNOR GENERAL ANNOUNCES
HIS   WHEREABOUTS
Announces By Wireless That His
Trip to Hudson Bay Has Been a
Great Success���Expects to Reach
Pictou   September   Fourteenth.
Ottawa, Sep. 4.���The deputy minister of marine and fisheries received
the following message this evening
from the wireless telegraph operator
on the government steamer "Earl
Grey," with the governor-general on
board, via Fame Point, September 2.
"Left Indian Harbor this morning; Battle Harbor tonight; all well."
The ship was yesterday off the coast
of Labrador. She is due at Pictou on
September 14th. Nothing is said about
stopping at St. John's, Newfoundland.
The Earl Grey left Fort Nelson at
midnight on August 20th. Another
message which came by way of Fame
Point reads: "We arrived Port Nelson at noon August 13th. His excellency and party arrived on board at
midnight on August 20th. Today at
8 we were abeam Cape Harrison, bound
In Regard to Real Estate Purchases
In Rupert
"I have noticed a promising sign in
connection with the briskening up of the
real estate business this fall" says Mr.
C. Planitz of the British Columbia Real
Estate Syndicate. "That is that among
the number of clients who have concluded business deals of late with us a
very fair proposition has been made
up of men who have spent some time in
Prince Rupert, then gone to Stewart and
elsewhere, and having made good money
in the outlying districts have returned
to invest it in Prince Rupert real estate.
There are those who have said these men
would not ever return to Rupert. But
they have returned, and returned as
investors. I think this a a splendid sign
of the solid promise of this city."
Moving to Second Avenue
J. F. Macdonald is moving into his
new premises in the Little block. He intends holding an auction every Saturday the first of which will be next Saturday.
CLOSE SEASON
FOR THE BEAR
IS BRUIN ENTITLED TO ANY PROTECTION  AT  ALL
Now Against Law To Kill Bear From
Mid-July to September But People
in Northern Part of Province Flatly Refuse To Recognize It.
It is expected that at an early meeting of the Provincial Executive, the
desirability of maintaining the announced close season for bear will come
under review.
As announced by the Chief Game
Warden, a close season for bear at
present exists in British Columbia as
from mid-July to September, and already several convictions have been
secured of persons who have shot bear
in various parts of the province, all
innocent of knowledge that this prohibition exists. From the north of the
province comes a flat refusal to recognize the bear as entitled to legimate
protection, it being urged that- Bruin
is the settler's worst enemy, in as much
as neither the young orchard, the
flock, or the younger cattle are safe
from his greed. The question of policy will be debated in Executive, and
the Government's attitude as to bear
shooting, when, and under what conditions, will thereafter be authoritatively
announced.
TO TAKE TEAM
TO AUSTRALIA
NEW   WESTMINSTER   LACROSSE
PLAYERS WILLING
Promoter Hugh McIntosh Is the
Proposer and Believes It Would
Prove To Be a Big Financial Success  in  Every Way.
New Westminster, Sep. 4.���The suggestion of Hugh Mcintosh, the Australian sport promoter, to take the New
Westminster lacrosse team on a tour of
Australia, while not diccussed officially,
has been well received by officers of the
club who believe that the trip could be
made with profit and pleasure to the
team.
Manager Welsh thinks that all the
boys could take the trip and that from
what he has heard of Australia it would
be a financial success. Fred J. Lynch
thinks that all the team could go with
perhaps two or three exceptions and
intermediates could fill in there, and
still leave a team good enough to meet
the best of them.
The tour is recalled of the so-called
All-star Canadian team that went to
Australia a few years ago being defeated in New Westminster before
sailing by 17 goals to nil. If a team
like that could make such a successful trip it is thought that surely the
world's champions could repeat.
FRANK   SMITH   DEAD
For Many Years Chief of Police of
Dawson  City
for Indian harbor. All well on board.
Destination Pictou, September 14th."
His excellency Earl Grey has sent
by wireless telegraph via Fame Point
the following wireless measage, addressed to Hon. L. P. Brodeur, minister of marine: "Trip great success,
Steamer most comfortable. Much
obliged for all your excellent arrangements. Propose disembarking from
steamer at Pictou September Hth."
Word has reached the city of the
death at Vernon, Cal., of Staff-Sergeant Frank Smith, for several years
chief of police at Dawson.
Fourteen years ago Mr. Smith enlisted in the ranks of the Northwest
Mounted Police and was later detailed for duty in the Yukon. At the time
of the incorporation of Dawson City
he was placed in charge of the police
force there and continued in that position until the time of the city incorporation plebiscite seven years later.
While in command at Dawson he still
retained his commission as Staff- Ser-
j geant of the Northwest Mounted Police.
j In 1906 he took his discharge, the
formal document being endorsed "excellent." He th.n became connected
with Mr. W. H. Welsh in the Canadian Detective Bureau, having the
charge of the Toronto office. This he
had to relinquish a year ago because
of the ravages upon his constitution
of the disease, which later proved
fatal, consumption. In the hope of
regaining health he went to Arizona,
and later to Vernon Cal., where he
died.
During the years of his residence
in the Yukon he made many friends
to a number of whom, now resident
in Prince Rupert, the news of his passing
has come as a painful shock. He was
a man widely respected.
Removal of Grand Trunk Annex
Who is the proper person to notify in
xegard to the removal of the Grand Trunk
Annex from Second avenue? Aid. Naden
wants to know. He suggested at last
night's city council meeting that copies
of the notification be sent to every department head in connection with the
G. T. P. in order that there might be
no doubt to the notification having been
duly sent the proper quarter or quarters.
It was decided to do so.
NEW PASTOR COMING

Rev. W. F. Kerr will arrive here on
Saturday next and will, it is expected

church on Sunday next. Rev. Mr. Kerr
is the new minister called by the Pres-.
byterians to succeed Rev. Mr. Ross
who is leaving for the south in a short
time. The new minister will be ordained

LIBEL FOLLOWS
QUATSIN0 LOSS
INSURANCE   COMPANIES   SUING
TUGBOAT OWNERS
Have Libelled Tug Goliah and
Charge Her Captain Was Guilty
Of Negligenge Which Caused the
Wreck   of   the   QuaUino.
Marine insurance men and ship owners of the coast are unusually interested
in several libel suits filed in the United
States District Court, western district
of Washington, which are the result
of the loss of the British barge Quat-
sino on a reef between Green and
Grey islands on October 15, 1909. The
latest action was filed a few days ago,
and in this the Maritime Insurance
Company, Ltd., libelled the tug Goliah of the Puget Sound Tugboat Co.,
fleet. Libelants ask for $2499 and interest, alleging that the tug was responsible for the wreck.and that they are
entitled to the amount of the risk which
they were compelled to pay William
Griffiths, owner of the Quatsino.
Other marine insurance companies
which carried risks on the Quatsino
have previously filed similar suits,
and when the case is presented to the
court it will be followed with unusual
interest. It is thought that some precedents may be established. While
the owners of the tug have not yet
outlined their defence, it is expected
that they will deny all responsibility,
as in taking the tow it is understood
that a clause was inserted expressly
relieving them of any and all liability
for any loss of either cargo or barge.
Whether this clause will hold in the
courts is one of the questions in which
insurance authorities and others are
mostly interested.
In tow of the Goliah the Quatsino,
laden with 2317 1-2 tons of coal, left
Nanaimo for Cordova, October 11,
1909. Four days later the barge was
lost. The Goliah was in charge of
Capt. Charles T. Bailey, while Capt.
T. H. Cann Jr., was aboard as pilot.
While making the tortous course
through the inside passage early on
the morning of October 15 it was discovered that the light on Green Island
was not burning. Capt. Bailey stopped
and after consultation with his pilot
finally proceeded. According to the
libel, Capt. Cann is blamed for making a mistake in reckoning his position with Capt. Bailey, the legal papers
assert, was responsible and negligent
in proceeding on Cann's advice, when
he himself was not certain of the landmark. On these grounds the libelants assert that the Goliah and her
owners are liable for the loss of the
barge and cargo.
Some time after the wreck, William
Griffiths, owner, brought suit to collect the insurance carried on the Quatsino.
These claims have since been settled.
In the present instance the insurance
company asks the court to award it the
anount of ita risk, petitioning that the
owners of the tug be made to reimburse
the libelants.
Several of the other insurance suits
pending against the owners of the
Goliah are for losses paid on the cargo
of coal. The Quatsino, it will be recalled, waa formerly the German ship
Arthur Fitger, which was damaged by
fire at Port Blakeley three years ago.
She was gold to the Coastwise steamship
and Barge Company and used in towing
until she departed on her ill-fated voyage.

LAURIER'S     PARADOXES
Statement of Applicability of
tection and Free Trade
Pro-
The New York Herald has been
studying Sir Wilfrid Laurier's tariff
speaking in the west and finds this
trouble.
"There is a curious paradox in Sir
Wilfrid's statement of the applicability
of protection and free trade. He regards protection as necessary for a newly
settled country and yet he says that it
is the newly settled part of the Dominion which demands free trade; and he
regards free trade as appropriate for a
long settled land, although it is the older
parts of Canada which are the strongholds of protection. That is to say, each
part of the Dominion wants the very
thing which is unsuited to it. Such is
the perversity of human nature! As
for the suggestion of the collection of revenue from a class of the community instead of impartially from all
in proportion to their means, we doubt
if it greatly and permanently commends itself to the Canadian spirit
of fair play. Indeed, we cannot suppose
that Sir Wilfrid really meant to make it,
or to commend it, despite the fact that
upon their face his words have that
significance. In a country where those
who might practice free trade are devoted
to protection and where those who favor
free trade are compelled by inexorable
circumstances to .practice protection,
we can perceive little hope of the establishment of Cobdenism."

rijsources only awaiting means of transportation to make them available,
mineral deposits have been proved in the vicinity of Prince Rupert and Stewart
and also in the interior. Available for agriculture is the valley along the north
fork of the Frazer River from Teteaunecache to Fort George. This valley is
heavily timbered, but when cleared will produce marvelous crops."
"Don't worry about the tax rate but have good water, good ligts and good
roads, and you will have a great city, and a popular one. I would rather live in
Prince Rupert that in any other pity in Canada, excepting possibly Ottawa." That
is the good advice given by Clift Ford the young Englishman who recently invested
over $100,000 in Prince Rupert property.
G. H. Balfour, general manager of the Union Bank is quoted in the Vancouver
Province with having said that he did not see how the town of Prince Rupert would
be able to support itself until the transcontinental railroad is completed. Mr. Balfour
had just returned from a visit to Prince Rupert and probably had he inspected the
bank books while here he might have gathered some ideas.Before he doubts the future
he should enquire into the cause of why it is that Prince Rupert has lived and grown
fat the past two years. It has not been entirely due to the salubrity of the climate.

Between the Winnipeg and Superior Junctions.
Winnipeg, Sep. 3.���Though no official notification has yet been received
at the local offices at Winnipeg, it is
eppected that within a short time the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway will celebrate tile fifth anniversary of the beginning of its construction by opening
up the government section for traffic
between Winnipeg and Superior Junction, a distance of 280 miles. At present
the grain handled by the company from
the west is delivered to the C. P. R.
and the C. N. R. at Winnipeg, and this
arrangement will continue until the
opening. Asked when that would be
the officials of the company stated
this morning that they had had no advices so far.

CITY COUNCIL QUESTIONS
Aid. Mobley Visited New Westminster   To   Get   Pointers
The Vancouver World publishes the
following under a New Westminster
date line:
"Alderman F. H. Mobley, of Prince Rupert, is spending a few days in the city,
studying the municipal lighting system.
Mr. Mobley is chairman of the light
committee of the Prince Rupert council
and is comparing the different systems
in use in the coast cities. He states he
is better pleased with the Tungsten
series used here than with any other on
the coast."

first sod at Fort William. At about
the same time the actual construction
was commenced on the prairie section
west of Winnipeg. Since then thousands of men have been at work, with
the result that the great project, which
means so much to western Canada, is
rapidly nearing completion.
The line from Winnipeg to Edmonton
was opened a year ago. The comple- j and stating that he

will allow the road to be operated from
Fort William through to Edmonton
about 1,100 miles. This will enable
the new transcontinental line to move
this year's grain crop next month.
The placing of Edmonton in direct
communication with Fort William, the
great grain outlet for western Canada,
marks another epoch of western development and has deep significance to
both cities. Edmonton appears, destined to become the great railroad centre
of  Alberta  and  will  rapidly  take  its
Sites
Before the city council adjourned last
night Aid. Smith asked the mayor if
anything further had been done in regard to a site for the city electric plant.
Tye mayor replied reporting progress,
had investigated
In reply to a question by Aid. Naden
the mayor said that he had had no reply
from the G. T. P. regarding a site for
the city hall.
Aid. Pattullo mentioned that he understood from a conversation had with
David H. Hays that C. M. Hays had said
that notwithstanding the assessment
difficulty, he was ready at any time to
draw up a deed in favour of the city for
all park lands and open spaces promised
the city.
Inspect Water Power
On the invitation of Mr. Brutinel,
Aid. Barrow and Mr. Clancy of the Bank
of Montreal went on Saturday to inspect the Tsimpsean Power Co's water
power on the Kabaada River. Aid.
Barrow announced that the power would
give something like 40,000 h.p. transformed by    turbine.
Half a million in cold cash makes
a fat widow nice and plump.
We feel sorry for the man who thinks
that everybody else is dishonest.
Nearly every girl thinks it is up to
her to resist a kiss she really wants.
 Aid. Hilditch thought that if this were

cannot get them from the government
or G. T. P. then we had better buy them
now while they are cheap." He suggested
that Mr. Hays be approached on the
matter at the earliest opportune time.
Aid. Mobley asked the city clerk what
steps were being taken in regard to the
licensing of dogs in the city. Mr. Woods
replied that he was intending to order
order a number of dog tags from Vancouver where he could get them a dollar
and a half cheaper than by ordering
in the city. Aid. Hilditch remarked that
if everybody sent to Vancouver for
things rather than order in Prince Rupert
the city would grow very slowly. Some
conversational discussion followed regarding the value of goods which might
be ordered on account of the city by
the purchasing agent without direct
sanction from the council. Aid. Hilditch
was pretty firmly convinced that $50
was the limit, though committees were
of opinion that their powers went beyond this. The general concensus of
opinion was that the city's expenses
were being kept well down anyway.

the sewerage is going to be paid for."
"Why not purchase the pipe on account
of the city and hold it for supply as
necessary as we did with lumber previously?" asked Aid. Lynch.
Aid. Naden thought that if the city
could afford to carry such a stock of
pipe it might be purchased.
"It will be necessary to pass a bylaw on the question and submit it to the
people" said Aid. Pattullo. He suggested
that the engineer should report on the
sewers necessary for Sectio n one, and
that a by-law regarding it should be
submitted to the citizens. He pointed
out that his idea was simply to have the
work done as cheaply as possible for
the city. If it were not for the fact
that the grading was to be done the sewer
question Would not have come up then at
all.
"The best thing to do is to have the
report adopted and the work carried
out s soon as the Finance committee
can see their way to undertake it" said
the mayor.
Aid. Mobley was in favor of goini;
ahead little by little till they saw just
how they stood, and Aid. Pattullo then
moved that the report be referred to
the Streets, Works and Property committee which motion was carried.
MARINE
Dominion steamer Quadra is in port,
taking on coal and supplies.
Captain Jackman says the Port
Simpson is not running for the Grand
Trunk or the Grand Trunk contractors,
but for the Hudson Bay company.
She left this morning with about a
dozen passengers for Hazelton and up
river points.
The Coquitlam is in port and unloading brick.
The Henriette will leave the islands
soon after the arrival of Prince Rupert
this afternoon.
The Port Simpson was expected to
bring down the large party of newspaper
men and artists who have made the trip
from Edmonton. They are probably at
Hazelton by this time and will leave on
the next boat from there.
TODAY'S POLICE NEWS
Kelwassar Fined $100���Several Suspects   Skip���Furnishes   Bonds.
Council   and   Bylaws
The city council went into committee last night for the discussion of
by-laws. Four by-laws in reference to
street improvements and raising the
necessary money for these were read
by the City Clerk. The ward by-law
also passed its third reading.
Business in the police court this morning was briskly dealt with, Magistrate
McMullen presiding. The case of Erie
Rosang, charged with selling spiritous
liquor, was adjourned till the afternoon.
Joe Kelwassar who sold the alleged
vermuth over which there was some
discussion yesterday was fined $100, and
himself considered that things might
have gone heavier against him though he
maintained that the stuff he sold was, he
thought, innocent enough.
Robert Batt of the Avenue Hotel,
charged with spirit selling failed to put
in an appearance, and a search warrant
has been issued against him. A warrant
has also been issued against Winnie
Johnson who has skipped the district
rather than face the charge against her
on account of the character of her recent
residence. Chris Christiansen, whose
fresh charge of spirit selling followed so
closely upon his second last one after he
had been sternly warned by the Magistrate, haa also skipped out with Agnes
Nolin, the woman who was charged with
him with the same offence.
Louis Astoria, who was found guilty
of having given spirits to an Indian and
fined $200, has been rejeased on his own
bond of $200, and bonds of $100 each
from two friends. This case is to be
further investigated.
Maxime Collestil is at present an
inmate of the cells at the police office,
charged with having misappropriated
bricks from a lot between Third and
Fulton streets. He was apprehended
about midnight yesterday with the
bricks in a bag. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

head and there took the trail to Tel-Ell
a distance of fourteen miles. Here horses
were obtained at Mexican Tom's and
the party rode to Skidegate, reaching
1 that point on Wednesday night and hav-
1 ing covered a distant of thirty mite.
Next day the party visited Sandspit
point, on Moresby island, and there met
the settlers in a general meeting. They
found Samuel Molton engaged in fishing
operations at this point. Molton is
backed by English capital and hopes
soon to establish a large fishing industry at some point in the immediate
neighborhood. He showed some fine
samples of fertilizer made from waste
portions of fish, which he states can be
sold for $60 per ton. It takes five hundred
fish, he said, to produce a ton of fertilizer, but the same number of fish also
produced forty gallons of fine oil worth
fifty cents per gallon. His present operations are merely experimental, but he
finds them very encouraging.
The party went to Queen Charlotte
city and held a meeting at which over a
hundred settlers were present from Lawn
Hill, Skidegate, Queen Charlotte City,
and other points. Mr. Taylor grew more
enthusiastic in his praise of the prospects
of the country.
After   the   meeting   they   took   the
i steamer  Henriette to  Pacofi  and had
the opportunity of looking over the plant
of the Pacific Coast Fisheries Company
I which had been established at this point.
' The company has a building Five stories
high, with all the latest appliances for
j handling   fish   products   and   utilizing
| the waste.   The company also has just
completed a fine storage plant and is
beginning the season's operations.   The
I men employed by the company reported
[ that there was an abundance of fish in
I the vicinity and that the prospects for a
I very large business were most encourag-
; ing.
.Lockport, Jedway and Ikeda Bay
| were next visited. At the latter point
reports were received by wire to the
effect that the Ikeda Bay mines had
changed hands and that the new pro-
: prietors would arrive by the next
steamer to proceed with mining operations. This means a great deal for that
part of the islands. The mines have been
shipping in a small way but now the
operations wil be on a large scale and
.here will be a big pay roll.
The minister left the islands thoroughly
well pleased with what he had seen,
and he so expressed himself as the steamre
was pulling out last night.

The survey party which is out for the
city locating a line for the water main
from Woodworth lake to the city are
making progress. They have the preliminary line through and are now surveying the land at the sides so that the
engineer can tell you how far up the
mountain he will put the pipe. The
weather at times has been against rapid
work. For several days the fog was so
bad that it was impossible to see more
than 50 to 60 yards away. The men at
the camp report the presence of lots of
game. Since the season opened the cook
and packer have been able to supply
fresh venison for the table, which is not
only a decided change, but a change that
is very highly appreciated, although the
meat they got before was pretty gamey
too. On Sunday last the boys saw six
mountain goats and blazed at them,
but were unsuccessful. Life in the bush
is now a happy one.
VETERANS ASSOCIATION
All  Old   Soldiers  Are   Requested   to
Communicate With E. D. Clarke
E. D. Clarke a veteran of the first
mounted Canadian regiment which defended the flag on the battlefield, and
which served in South Africa, has received a Utter from Hon. .Secretary
and organizer of the Imperial Veterans
Association, John Hooper, 183 Walnut
street, Winnipeg, asking him to endeavor
to organize a company of veterans in
Prince Rupert. There are quite a number of old soldiers here and Mr. Clarke
has spoken to a few of them. They seem
to be enthusiastic over the idea and the
probability is that a company will be
organized. All who wish to join are requested to communicate with Mr. Clarke
at a very early date. There are no fees
nor dues. It is all voluntary. One object
of the company is to publish a hand
book giving the names and present
addresses of all living veterans of South
Africa. All who have a war medal or
who have served ten years in the permanent   army   or   navy   are   elligible.
NEW   ROYAL   BANK
Business  in   Manitoba   Has Grown
From   Thirty  To   Seventy   Millions
From modest rented premises to a
palatial new home in the course of a
few years is the experience of the Royal Bank's branch in Winnipeg, and it is
in keeping with the advance the bank
is making generally in the Dominion.
The name "Royal Bank" in only ten
years old. It was assumed by this
bank in 1900, taking the place of the
'���Merchants Bank of Halifax," under
which title the bank was incorporated
in 1869. Under a title that Was very
happily selected the bank has grown
remarkably. By divesting itself of the
more local name, the bank rapidly
earned for itself a reputation as a
national rather than as a local enterprise.
The first branch of the bank to be
instituted in the prairie provinces was
that in Winnipeg in 1906. Since that
time fourteen other branches have been
established, at stragetic points throughout the west including that in Prince
Rupert.
When the first branch was opened up
in Manitoba the total deposits of the bank
were thirty millions, they have since increased to sixty million dollars, and
with the acquisition of the Union Bank
of Halifax, which will take place on
the first of November next, the total
deposits wi 1 exceed seventy million
dollars, and the total assets of the bank
will be over ninety million dollars.
The Winnipeg branch was opened
with D. C. Rea as manager in 1906. Mr.
Rea was succeeded by T. R. Whitley
n 1908. Since then the western business
has increased to such an extent that
Mr. Whitley has been appointed supervisor of western branches, and the
Winnipeg branch has been placed in
the charge of Mr Rea.

Will  Continue Wagon  Road
Advices   have   been   received   from
Prince Rupert that after a conference

i perintendent Jennings received instruc-
j tions for the continuation of the main
wagon road from Bitter creek north.
! This work has been temporily suspen-
j ded to complete the building of trails
| to   outlying   properties,   now   nearing

City Lighing Scheme

read at the city council meeting last night.
Mr. Durant regretted his inability to
submit spe cifications for a city electric

Power company.

mark by the up-to-date girl.

meeting, on the motion of Aid. Pattullo.
City's    Sanitation
The question of the city scavenging
came up again before the council last
night. After some little conversation I
on the matter, it was moved by Aid
Lynch, and seconded by Aid. Pattullo

the cost of the appliances necessary for a
city scavenging department. The motion
was carried.
The matter of the sanitary condition
of the Grand Trunk Reserve was also
brought up and referred again to the
