fET STREET WORK UNDER WAY
yd. Lynch Outlines the Work
to Be Taken Up.
U^ch Avenue and Eighth Avenue
to be Started Shortly���Section One
j to Be Taken Up as a Whole District-Waiting for Engineer Davis.
_.l bodies move slowly.   So do muni-
|iul councils���not because the members
i tot anxious to move more quickly,
j because there are certain forms to
o through and they all take time.   A
i example  is at hand in connection
h the street grading. The people are
moiing for the work to start.    The
less men want to see the work get
r way. The city needs the improve-
Ktits and the merchants   need more
lople here to buy goods. The aldermen
e aware of all these facts and they are
; the most anxious to get the work
ktirted.
Aid. W. P. Lynch, chairman of the
Streets, Works and Property committee,
s done his best to advance the street
lading movement. He has had the
kanicular charge of the matter and is in
I position to know as much or more about
|he progress made and the future moves
of the aldeimen as any one. The Optimist
called on Aid. Lynch last evening and
asked him what information could be
given to the anxious public as to the
immediate intentions of the council.
The chairman of the streets committee
replied that he would that night introduce a resolution instructing the
engineer to prepare his report on Beech
avenue and Eighth avenue at once. There
were petitions before the council from
taxpayers on those streets asking for the
grading to be proceeded with. Then
residents on Fraser street will have a
petition in shortly. After the engineer
prepares his report the work will be
advertised for one week. Then the
property owners have 15 days to file
any objection. If the object is not backed
by a sufficient number of the property-
holders (one-half) then the work will
start. In short it will be twenty or
twenty-one days yet before any men can
be employed. But towards the end of
July the pay roll will be started and it
will continue and increase from that
time on.
Business   Section
Asked by the Optimist what was the
program for section one, or the business
section,   Aid.   Lynch  replied   that   he

SHUTTING OUT LABOR
Transportation men are beginning to notice the great falling
off in the number coming here to
seek employment, and the railway contractors are feeling it
severely. Almost every day their
bulletin board has a call for men.
The scarcity is due to the enforcement of the new immigration law
by the officers below. It is not
known if the local board of trade
has taken any action in the matter.

(Special to tlie Optimist)
Victoria, June 29.���Fitzsimmons has
just arrived here on the Marama from
Sydney. He is on his way to Reno
to see the big fight for the championship
When asked to make a guess at the winner he said he did not know how the two
men had stood the hard training, but he
would pick Jeffries to win for several
reasons. These reasons he did not state.
He says the betting in Australia favors
Johnson, and if odds of five to one can
be had on Jeff.ies in Chicago some body
could pick up good money "hedging" as
the.e was lots of money in Australia
ready to be put on the colored man.
Tommy Burns left Australia on the
same steamer but transferred at Honolulu for a steamer direct to San Francisco.
Lang accompanied Burns, and both
are said to be backing Jefiries.

achWe shops at Winnipeg.
At the meeting of the City Council last
night the question came up for the first
time as to what was to be done for and
with the indigent sick of the city. It was
brought forward by a statement made by
Mayor Stork. A case had been called
to his attention of a man at the Knox
Hotel suffering from acute appendicitis. He was told that the man had been
working, but at the present was an indigent. He had had the man sent to
the hospital and had written to Dr.
Ewing that probably an operation
would be necessary and the man would be
expected to pay for his treatment, but
if he could not the city would take up
the matter.
Aid. Pattullo doubted the wisdom of
such a clause, as surgeons usually charged
pretty heavy fees for suoh operations.
He thought the health commit tee should
be instructed to endeavor to e'fect some
arrangement with the hospital authorities
for the care and treatment of city indigents.
The Mayor said the case was presented
to him unexpectedly, and he took the
only possible course in the matter.
Certainly the health committee should
at once see about some arrangement
with the hospital authorities as to the
treatment of indigents, and especially
cases of emergency such as this.
Aid. Naden was of the Mayor's
opinion. In cases of sickness it was
absolutely necessary for the city to take
charge of those without funds, as was
done in other cities.
The health committee was instructed
accordingly.
Reno, June 29.���John L. Sullivan
with his big auto is here. He first paid
a visit to Johnson's camp and witnessed
the colored man boxing with Kaufman
and Cotton. He concludes: "I saw nothing of a startling nature that is an improvement over our old methods, and
in that respect I was a little disappointed
but at the same time I should feel complimented, because these latter day
young fellows have thought sufficiently
well of our old methods to adopt so
many of them." Johnson's stealthy
work surprised him, reminding him of
Fitzsimmons. Old John says that he
is not picking the winner for anybody.
Both men appear to him to be in fine
shape and it will undoubtedly be a
grand fight.
Rooms in Reno are at a premium today
and the whole town is overcrowded.
What it will be Saturday and Sunday
is beyond imagination. A group of
enterprising lads cornered all the tents
in town and have rushed orders for more.
They have increased the price to $1 and
are putting up hundreds of them.
��� Vancouver, June 29.���Great interest
is being felt here in the big match between Jeffries and Johnson. Preparations are being made to publish the
fight by rounds the same afternoon.
Plenty of betting.     Odds favor Jeffries.

London, June 29���(Special)���The
Daily Mail offers a prize of fifty thousand
dollars for a thousand mile flight. s.
The aldermen sat upon their new
chair cushions last night and some of
them were as jubilant as boys about it;
while others, Alf. Barrow and Pattullo,
for instance, seemed to scorn such
effeminate luxury and stoically adhered, to the hard wood. The Mayor
presided and those present were Aid.
Naden, Pattullo, Hilditch, Mclntyre,
Lynch and Barrow.
There was very little miscellaneous
business before the council, and in a few
minutes it resolved itself into committee
of the whole on by-laws.
���There were only two communications,
one from A. I. Bind, who wrote that he
had visited Prince Rupert, and he found
all lines of business represented except
that of pawnbroker. He desired to ,now
what the license would cost and the
other particulars. The city clerk was
instructed to reply to the writer.
The other communication was from
the General Electric Company of Vancouver. It stated that as the company's
contract with the city was only $13,000
a cheque was enclosed for $650 being
five per cent, and asking that the cheque
sent previously for $2000 be returned.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the letter
be received and the request complied
with, and Aid. Pattullo seconded the
motion, which was carried.
School Closes Tomorrow
The Public School closes tomorrow
at noon. The pupils are all busy writing
on the last of their promotion examinations the result of which will be published in this paper as soon as prepared
by the principal. The school will reopen on Monday, August 29th.
(Special to the Optimist)
Casa Blanca, Morocco, June 29.���The
fanatical tribesmen have again risen
in force against the French army of
occupation, bed by a holy man from the
interior with a command from Allah
to drive all the unbelievers into the sea.
Although the French are strongly entrenched in the fortifications they have
raised around this seaport, the tribe-
men managed to make an entrance into
the city on the south west end. The
street fighting was of short duration,
the natives not being well supported,
but in this attack thirteen French troops
were killed.
Outside the fortifications it was a
regular massacre. The natives came in
with superb courage right up to the
machine guns, shooting and cutting
down the gunners in several cases. But
the slaughter was fearful. The machine
guns mowed down the incoming Arabs
and Moors in great wide swaths, and
after the engagement, which lasted
barely two hours, there were thirteen
hundred   dead   natives  on .dkhe   field.
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, June 29.���A temperature
of over one hundred degrees was recorded at a number of Manitoba points
yesterday and it is quite as hot today.
This excessive heat is generally accompanied with strong drying winds. Around
the grain exchange today, where wheat
jumped five cents yesterday, the bulls
had it all their own way. Alarming reports of damage to spring wheat, no
doubt many of them greatly exaggerated
were received from all over the country.
There is no doubt that the crop has
suffered considerable.
Crop  Report  Optimistic
Winnipeg, June 29.���(Special)���The
report of the Canadian Northern railway
on the crop outlook is very optimistic.
It declares there will be a good harvest
all along the line.
London,   June   29.���(Special)���The
King's horse,  Royal  Escort,  won the
Wellington handicap run at Sundown
yesterday.
THE BIG FIGHT
This paper has arranged for a ring-side telegraphic
despatch of the Jeffries-Johnson championship fight
next Monday. The great contest by rounds will
appear in the regular or a special edition. Watch
for it.

upon the pay-roll of the railway contractors and on the income from the products
of the country���fishing and lumbering. The railway pay-roll is now moving eastward and it will be a diminishing factor in local trade, but the wages paid for
lumbering and fishing are regular sources of income. They are worth catering to and
it is a wise merchant who keeps them in view. For instance there are twelve canneries
on the Skeena with an annual summer expenditure of about a million dollars. At
least $200,000 of this is spent in wages to Indians, Japs and Chinamen. The natives
get about $75,000 which will be all spent in the district within a few weeks. The
balance goes mostly to Vancouver and Victoria. Is Prince Rupert making an effort
to secure this trade? It is about the only large pay-roll available at the present
time and Prince Rupert needs money in her business. The city cannot live off
real estate alone.
The Optimist believes that practically all the money spent on supplies and in
wages at the Skeena canneries and lumber camps can be brought to Prince Rupert
if the merchants, business men and Board of Trade get out after it. It is the nucleus
of a nice trade for the wholesaler, a very desirable source of revenue for the retailer.
This trade has for years been going to Vancouver and other places, and for that
reason it is more difficult to secure than newly developed trade; but it has this
advantage, that none of the money put in circulation by the canneries comes out
of the city.  Every dollar of it we can get here is what the sport calls "velvet."
The editor of the Empire has announced that he is a power in the land. That
is not what the members of the city council called him the other morning.

TO   PROMOTE   PEACE
United   States   Senate   Appoint*   a
Special    Commission.
Washington, June 24.���Confining the
expenditure to $10,000 the senate today
adopted the joint resolution originating
in the House authorizing the appointment of a commission for the propagation of universal peace.
The commission is to consist of five
members, and is to be appointed by the
president.
The purpose is to consider "the expediency of utilizing existing international agencies for the purpose of limiting the armaments of the nations of the
world by international agreement, and
of constituting the combined navies of
the world into an international force
for the preservation of universal peace
and to consider and report upon any
other mean's to diminish the expenditures of governments for military purposes and to lessen the probabilities
of war."
The bill now goes to the   president.
Acting Agent Appointed

could not speak officially as the council
wished Engineer Davis to prepare
the plans for that before deciding what
to do. He stated, however, that it was
the general opinion and intention of
the aldermen to make section one a
local improvement section. That will
include First, Second and Third avenues
from Vickersville to ' Eleventh street,
Fraser street and all the cross streets.
The whole job will be undertaken at
once.
The council intends to take the in-
itative in this and not wait for petitions.
When the time comes the work will be
advertised as required by law and then
those who object to it will have to file
a petition. This puts it up to those who
do not desire their property improved
by street grading, and the petition must
also be signed by one half of the property owners. The aldermen believe
that the majority of the owners in section
one are anxious for the improvement
and this is much the fastest mode of
procedure. To wait for a petition that
is signed by half the property owners
asking for the work to be done might
necessitate a delay of months if it was
possible to secure it at all, while the way
that has been decided upon should not
take more than three weeks after the
engineers report has been received.
Cost   $300,000
To grade the three avenues Fraser
street and all the cross streets in section
one, Aid. Lynch estimates will cost
$300,000 and it may run to $325,000 or
$350,000. Even at that he does not
hesitate to state that it will be done
within the next year for at least $100,000
less than if the council was to wait for
a couple of years. Every building that
is erected in section one adds that much
more cost to the grading and a couple
of years will see this section pretty
well built up. The saving will be greater
the earlier the work is done as it can be
done faster by heavier blasting.
The aldermen are also alive to the
fact that there is little use in grading the
avenues unless the cross streets are
graded at the same time. They also
realize that it would be bad business
to grade patches of the section. Hence
their intention to grade the whole
district as one work.
The above, said Aid. Lynch, is not
offical although it is the general idea
of the aldermen. Nothing definite can
be decided until engineer Davies arrive?
from Berlin about July 1st and he has
had time to make his report and prepare
his plans. In the meantime, however,
work will be proceeded with on smaller
stretches   already  named.
TITLES OF OWNERSHIP
Canadian   Government   to   Investigate All Arctic Lands.
Ottawa, June 24.���The Canadian government is evidently preparing to make
good the claim to sovereignity in the
Arctic territory over which the* British
flag has been hoisted by the several
expeditions which have been in northern
waters in the past six years. The appointment is announced of Hon. J. C.
Patterson to be commissioner to investigate into titles of ownership by the
United Kingdom of Great Britain and
Ireland of all lands in the Arctic sea,
whether acquired by discovery, occupation or otherwise.
Mr. Patterson will report the result
of his investigations from time to time
to Sir Wilfrid jLaurier. The instructions
to Capt. Bermer, who will sail north in
a few days for another cruise in the
Arctic, are to plant the flag upon other
of the additional islands in the Arctic
regions.
