OVER TO PLANS
i MAKING   PRELIMINARY   STUDY
FOR HOSPITAL WORK
I Tum,d the Men Out and Got Down
l0 Busines. Without Wasting
Tiine in Talk.-Auxiliary Organiza-
L Formed In Short Order.
YaSterday afternoon the members of
I ti* Prince Rupert General Hospital
'jmnjmet a number of the influential
I Ms of the city in the Board of Trade
moms. The meeting was arranged with
, view to the formation of a Ladies'
Auxiliary for the furthering of the work
of providing funds for the new hospital
equipment. It was felt that the assistance of the ladies would materially
advance this particular department of
the hospital scheme. The members of
the board and the men of the city being
upon to carry out the main
f building the hospital.
The idea of enlisting the services of
the ladies was broached at the last
meeting of the hospital board, and it
was arranged that the proposed meeting
wth the ladies interested should be
announced as widely as possible through-
; out the city, by medium of the pulpits
and otherwise. Up till the last moment
however, the members of the Board
were not sure that the ladies had been
made fully aware of the meeting, and
when the chairman, Mr. Kirkpatrick,
Mr. Stewart and Mr. Clark appeared
they experienced quite a little anxiety
the success of the movement
to interest the ladies.
Very soon, however, all doubts as to
the extent of the enthusiasm of the ladies
for the success of the hospital were set
at rest, by the appearance of Aid.
Patullo with a group of ladies, and the
Secretary, Mr. Cuthbert, closely followed by a number more. When almost
all the available chairs in the Board of
Trade rooms were occupied, Mr. Kirkpatrick briefly introduced to the ladies
the object of the meeting that afternoon.
He said that tho men having agreed to
collect the $22,000 needed for the main
structure of the hospital, they felt that
the ladies of the city would not only be
of very great assistance to them, but
��1�� that they would be delighted to
share in the work of ensuring an efficient
hospital for Prince Rupert.
Aid. Patullo said, "We expect a great
leal of the ladies, but we are confident
��at they will more than fulfil our
apectations. It was suggested at the
t meeting of the Board that we should

Such State of Things Disgraceful.
It ie Believed the Murder Trial Will

(Special to the Optimist)
Edmonton, Sept. 28.���After giving
judgments for wages to six Grand Trunk
Pacific laborers, the magistrate said the
treatment of men working on the line
that had come to his notice showed a
disgraceful state of things. He had
known of men leaving the railway
employ who had other jobs to go to,
being forced to wait three weeks in
town because they could not get their
pay.
The magistrate advised the Grand
Trunk Pacific counsel to bring this state
of affairs to the notice of the head officials of the company. He said there
had been hundreds of similar cases in
his court since the spring.

London, Sept. 28.���Contrary to the

hearing, with Mr. Newton in charge.
The trial opens at the Central Criminal
court on October 12 and it is expected
to last about four days.

Rome, Sept. 28.���The removal of the

is stated that the wealthy people of
Naples have fled from that city by
the thousands, and other towns along

The case of Alphonse Reicher charged
with shooting and killing Joseph Beaudoin, his partner, came up before Magistrate Carss this morning for preliminary
hearing. The accused heard the evidence in silence, and did not desire to
ask the witness any questions, nor to
make any statement in answer to the
charge against him.
Sergeant Regan repeated the evidence
given at the inquest, described the finding
of the wounded man, and positions in
the shack. The 22-calibre rifle from
which the fatal shot was flred was
produced. Mr. Manson went very
carefully into the investigation of the
rifle, having Sergeant Regan demon-
strate its working, the process of loading,
cocking, and firing the weapon.
During the examination of the rifle
the accused, who had maintained a
stolid silence while witness was speaking,
displayed some interest in the proceedings. The click of the rifle lock
sounding in the court room aroused him,
and he watched minutely the handling
of  the  rifle  by   Sergeant  Regan.    It

KID M'COY RESCUED
Launch   Took   Fire   and   He    Had
Narrow Escape From Drowning
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Sept. 27.���Kid McCoy
had a narrow escape from drowning
yesterday. The launch he was sailing
in caught fire and drove the men to the
back part of it. Hia companions jumped
overboard and swam ashore. There they
obtained a rowboat and rescued McCoy
just as the craft was going down.
Berlin, Sept. 28.���The much discussed
Far Eastern trip of Crown Prince Wil-
helm may after all come to nothing,
or at least be postponed indefinitely,
if one is to believe the rumors that are
current in diplomatic circles during the
last week and which persistently assert
that the Kaiser intends to allow his
oldest son permanently to discharge all
public duties hitherto performed by
himself.
Two apparently quite plausible reasons are given. One is that the Kaiser's health is failing. He has never
had what may be termed a strong
constitution, and it is only by an extremely sober regime that he has been
able to support the physical and mental fatugie of the high place in the
world. He has had frequent breakdowns during the last few months,
and his physicians, although they do
not consider him in immediate danger,
gave advised his abstention from all
work that can be fulfilled by the crown
prince.
The other reason, which is more
likely to be the true one, is that the
Kaiser is all upset by the exceedingly
harsh criticism by even moderate German papers of his sensational speech
at Koenigsburg some three weeks ago.
The rumors of the Kaiser's intention to
turn over all public duties to the Crown
Prince   Wilhelm    began   to   circulate
(Special  to  the  Optimist)
Vancouver, Sept. 28.���The provincial
executive has decided not to approve
the plans for the expropriation of False
Creek foreshore, and the whole matter would appear that the weaPon te not

is now in a tangle. It was proposed at
the council meeting last night for the
city to go ahead with the development
work and force the province to show its
hand in the courts if necessary.

(Special  to  the  Optimist)
Edmonton, Sept. 28.���Over two hundred delegates of the Canadian Manufacturer's association took part in the
banquet here last night, and there were
also a number of distinguished guests
present.
President-elect Rawley repeated his
declaration in favor of pretection and
was warmly sheered.
PREPARING    FOR   TOURISTS
New Confectionery,  Fruit and Delicatessen Establishment to Start

Kaiser had received an unusually lenghty | in charge of an experienced lady from
communication from the chancellor of
the empire, and it is quite reasonable to
suppose that Herr von Betmhann-Hol-
weg has demanded from the Kaiser
the same promise of silence that Prince
von Buelow succeeded in wresting from
his imperial master, but that the Kaiser
this time has replied that if he is to keep
his mouth shut he might as well turn
over the whole business to the man who
is some time to succeed.
The Crown Prince may be allowed
to try his hand for a while, but unless
the rumors of the Kaiser's health are
founded on truth it will be but" for a
very short while, and it is safe to predict that his position will not be one
to be envied as long as it lasts.
from London, Ont. She will arrive
early in October to take charge special
of this branch of the establishment.
F. L. Goodnough, one of the company,
in a conversation with an Optimist
reporter says this city is at present a
little young for an enterprise of this
kind but he has great hopes for the
future and intends to carry a stock and
conduct a business that wuold be a
credit to a city much larger than Prince
Rupert.
Publicity Club Meeting

rooms of the Board of Trade.
one that can be quickly loaded and fired.
It is not a magazine rifle. The empty
shell discharged at the shooting, still
remains in the breech. Reicher eyed
the gun curiously as it was handed
to the Magistrate, as though he were,
in a way, vindictive towards the bit of
wood and iron for the part it had played
in his wretched position. "That's the
thing that did the work," he said when
Sergeant Regan found it in the shack.
The weapon was examined and carefully marked by Magistrate Carss who
put it down with the remark that it
should be handled carefully as we all
know how these "unloaded" guns are
apt to go off.
Amongst the productions in connection with the case are the bullet pierced
shirt of the deceased Beaudoin, and the
sum of $14 over which the fatal quarrel
is supposed to have arisen. This money
it appears was believed by Reicher to
have been stolen from him by Beaudoin
but was found afterwards about his
own person in the cells.
Dr. Tremayne's evidence was substantially the same as that given at the
inquest. He said that Beaudoin was a
strong man, and that there could be
no doubt that the bullet wound caused
his death.
George Elzear Sinclair was called to
give evidence regarding the identity of
the deceased.  .
All the evidence of the witnesses up
fo this point told more or less against
the accused who sat silent apparently
paying little active attention to their
statements. He looked like a man who
feels himself absolutely up against it,
and who can only aviod by silence the
risk of making matters worse for himself.
But with the calling of Thomas Keogh
a different feeling came over the court,
room. Here was a witness who ha
something to say in favor of the accused.
Thomas Keogh said that he lived in the
shack about 30 yards from that owned
by Reicher in which the shooting took
place. He had not been long in Prince
Rupert, but on the Wednesday morning

Juneau, Alaska, Sept. 25.���Prof. Her-

today if he believed that the Lloyd
party, of Fairbanks, made the summit
of Mount McKinley.   He said:
"We were on the peak close to Mount
McKinley. It was a clear day. We had
the most powerful glasses money could
obtain. It was ideal weather for observation, yet we could not see any
flag, no pyramids nor rocks to make a
monument. It was a desolate field of
snow and ice."
He declares Dr. Cook climbed the
mountains 20 miles south of McKinley
and has photographs to prove it.

Vancouver 23.���Messrs. Law & von
Dohlen, financial agents, with offices in
the Dominion Trust building, have
decided to organize a corporation with
its head office in this city, for the purpose
of manufacturing and marketing in Canada the Gray instantaneous automatic
electric water heater, of which electrical utility they are the sole owners
of patents in the Dominion.
The new patent company will take
over an assignment of patents as well
as all contracts now in force made
with Law & von Dohlen, by subsidiary
companies, covering the grants for
selling rights in the different provinces
by which the contractors agree to pay
certain amounts aggregating $45,000
for the privilege of selling the machines, and by which they also agree
to sell a stipulated quantity tti machines in a given time.
The organization will be capitalized
at $160,000, divided into shares at
$100 each, which will not be offered
publicly. About 640 shares will be
sold, and the minimum subscription
to be received will be $2000. It is
estimated that there will not be over
eighteen shareholders in the company
when completed.
The Dominion Trust Company, Limited, of Vancouver have agreed to act
as trustee to receive subscriptions, issue stock and make the necessary
transfers for the benefit of shareholders and Law & von Dohlen. The
new company will probably build a
factory here, and at the same time
may manufacture other electrical utilities.
SCHOOL GYMNASIUM
One Will Be Provided For the Boys in
The New Public School
At the next meeting of the public
school board Principal Hunter will
submit a report outlining plans for a
a gymnasium to be fitted up in the basement of the new school. In their estimates for this year the board provided
a fund for this purpose and the probability is that the gym will be ready
about the same time as the school. In
the winter the boys cannot get out to
play in the yard and the yard is not in
any shape for games yet, so that the
gym will be an ideal place for them
during leisure hours. Physical development is quite as necessary as mental
development, aad in addition this phase
of school life will be a great attraction
to the boys to remain at school until
they have taken all their examinations.
Principal Hunter will give the Board an
idea of what is required and the Board
will proceed to provide it.
SCHOOL CONCERT
Children  Will  Give  Entertainment
For the Purpose of School Library
The new public school will be fru-
nished with a library before the year is
out if the plans are carried out that are
now being prepared. Principal Hunter
drew the attention of the Board yesterday to the need of a school library and
in discussing ways and means of providing it the Board decided upon a school
concert. The principal was authorized
to have the childern prepared and that
a concert be given before the Christmas
holidays. The proceeds will be in aid
of the library fund. The idea is a good
one and will no doubt receive the hearty
co-operation of every parent in the city.

Juneau, Alaska, Sept. 25���Prof. Her-
schel C. Parker, interviewed, was asked
today if he believed that the Lloyd
party, of Fairbanks, made the summit
of Mount McKinley.   He said:
"We were on the peak close to Mount
McKinley. It was a clear day. We had
the most powerful glasses money could
obtain. It was ideal weather for observation, yet we could not see any
flag, no pyramids nor rocks to make a
monument. It was a desolate field of
snow and ice."
He declares Dr. Cook climbed the
mountains 20 miles south of McKinley
and has photographs to prove it.

ORGANIZING COMPANY TO MANUFACTURE HEATERS
Will Be a Close Corporation���Dominion Trust Company Handling
Stock and Acting as Company
Trustee    Pending    Organization.
Vancouver 23.���Messrs. Law & von
Dohlen, financial agents, with offices in
the Dominion Trust building, have
decided to organize a corporation with
its head office in this city, for the purpose
of manufacturing and marketing in Canada the Gray instantaneous automatic
electric water heater, of which electrical utility they are the sole owners
of patents in the Dominion.
The new patent company will take
over an assignment of patents as well
as all contracts now in force made
with Law & von Dohlen, by subsidiary
companies, covering the grants for
selling rights in the different provinces
by which the contractors agree to pay
certain amounts aggregating $45,000
for the privilege of selling the machines, and by which they also agree
to sell a stipulated quantity frf machines in a given time.
The organization will be capitalized
at $150,000, divided into shares at
$100 each, which will not be offered
publicly. About 640 shares will be
sold, and the minimum subscription
to be received will be $2000. It is
estimated that there will not be over
eighteen shareholders in the company
when completed.
The Dominion Trust Company, Limited, of Vancouver have agreed to act
as trustee to receive subscriptions, issue stock and make the necessary
transfers for the benefit of shareholders and Law & von Dohlen. The
new company will probably build a
factory here, and at the same time
may manufacture other electrical utilities.

THE FISHERIES DECISION
The Hague decision on the fisheries has unfortunately not yet settled the long
disputed and important rights of the halibut banks in Hecate Straits. Several days
ago the Optimist pointed out the apparent contradictory findings of the tribunal
as applied to the question. That the same view is taken by the United States is
evidenced in the comment of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer which states that while
the United States claim was defeated yet as regards Hecate Straits the Canadian
claim did not make good either. The dispute practically remains as it was. The
Post-Intelligencer says: "The decision ot the Hague tribunal in the Newfoundland
fisheries case is looked upon as a victory for Newfoundland and Great Britian,
although the United States was given the decision on five of the minor points
involved. The two large questions go against the United States. One supports
the contention of Great Britain that existing treaty obligations do not ptevent the
government of Newfoundland from making local fisheries regulations to apply
within the three-mile limit. The other British contention is that the three-mile
zone, which is completely within the jurisdiction of Great Britain, is to be measured
at sea from the headlands of a bay, not from the sinuosities of the shore. Under
the American contention, it would been have possible for American fishermen
to enter a bay, the entrance of which was more than six miles wide, and fish in any
part of it which was more than three miles from the shore.
"This decision settles an important question, so far as the Atlantic fisheries
are concerned, but it leaves untouched the question presented on this coast, a
question which is bound to become acute before many years pass,
"Here the Canadian authorities claim complete and full jurisdiction over
the waters of Hecate Strait, which lie between the mainland of British Columbia
and Queen Charlotte Island. There are places where this strait is nearly sixty miles
wide, and at no place is it any narrower than the British channel. It is the channel
which is followed by American vessels plying from Washington ports to those of
Southeastern Alaska. Even the logic of the Hague decision in the Newfoundland
cases does not touch the Hecate Strait case fully. Had the American contention
been upheld by The Hague, however, it would have settled the Hecate Strait case
aganist the Canadian contention."
A few years ago when Galveston, Texas, was devastated by a hurricane and the
city found itself in an unprecedented as well as an appalling condition the old style
city council, composed of ward alderman, was quite unable to grapple with the
situation. That was the beginning of Galveston's commission government which
has accomplished so much for that city. The commissioners elected at that time
have been in charge ever since. Prince Rupert conditions are not appalling but
they are unprecedented, and we have the old style council grappling with the
problem.

BLIND PIGS OF

HOW OTHER TOWNS HAVE DEALT
WITH THE PESTS
Prince Rupert Gets Credit For Having Made the Climate too Warm
For Them.���Fort George Starts
Cleaning  Up  its  Dirty   Piggeries.
Victoria, B. C, Sept. 24.���Not a
week has passed since the new Liquor License Law became operative
that has not seen one or more prosecutions successfully carried through
usually under new privileges designed
to regulate both the "sale" and the "use"
of intoxicants.
At Prince Rupert, where for a time
"blind pigs" flourished and waxed
fat, fines have been imposed, aggregating between $8000 and $10,000,
while in several cases it has been made
so warm for undesirables in the trade
that they have fled the country.
At Sheep Creek an application for
license was peremptorily cancelled and
a fine of $300 imposed for illicit selling at an established hotel.
In Kamloops a fine of $300 has been
imposed upon a well known hotel man
for selling drink to an intoxicated
person; and on Thursday last at Nelson, one man was fined $100 and costs
by Police Magistrate Irvine for having
supplied a minor with a glass of liquor,
this being the first prosecution of the
kind under the new law.
In Fort George, where conditions
are largely analogous to those prevailing at Prince Rupert in the formative period of that city's growth,
word came a fortnight ago that "blind
piggeries" were doing a thriving trade,
In less than 24 hours after the receipt
of this report, Superintendent Hussey
had Constable Anderson, of Quesnel,
enroute to the scene. And as a- consequence of this officer's activity, within
three days of his arrival at Fort George,
two men had been apprehended on the
charge of illicit liquor selling, arraigned
before Justice Lewis and Dauchier,
convicted and sentenced in each case to
one year's imprisonment, the sentences
being, however, suspended for two
weeks in which the offenders might
exercise the option of leaving the district and  province.

Progress of S. P. McMordie's and S.

The operations in connection with S.
P. McMordie's contract for the grading
of Second avenue have progressed so
far as to necessitate the closing of the
wheel traffic of the old road leading from
the Government Buildings to the wharf.
The plank way on Second avenue opposite the Government Buildings is being
torn up, and the men are cutting and
burning off the stumps. Mr. MeMordie
is satisfied with the supply of labor
he has available, and states that within
a   short  time   he   will   be   employing

upwards of 300 men on this contract.
The question of the removal of the
G. T. P. Annex, part of which occupies
the line of Second avenue must soon
be faced by the city. Mr. MeMordie
has notified the city that he will require
the removal of the buildings in the way
of his operations shortly.
There will be a good deal of blasting
to do in connection with the removal of
the big hump of hill by the Prince
Rupert Club building, as the hill contains plenty of hard rock. Some of the
rock so far encountered has been soft
and rotten requiring no dynamite.
S. H. Watson is actively engaged at
his end of the Second avenue grading
work, and is using lots of dynamite
with good effect. He has plenty of good
fill convenient for the dumping of his
cut stuff and with a strong gang of men
is making excellent progress.

to your interest to give immediate consideration to the opportunities offered in well selected
stocks. Don't asspme that every
mining company in the district
will become a producer and a
dividend-payer���we assure you,
positively, they will not. But
we do assure you that it will pay
you to make judicious investments in the Hazelton district.
To do this you must know the
property and the men in control
of same.
An investor in mining shares
should require of every proposition���
First
A property whose value has
been attested by an expert and
disinterested examination.
Second
Evidence that tbe management
is qualified by experience, business, prestige and financial resources to carry the enterprise to
a successful conclusion.
The first is essential, but without the second���the crucial test���
the old story of stagnation is too
often the outcome. The wise investor will bear this in mind.
It is with all these facts in
mind that we recommend investment in Silver Cup Mines, believing that the conditions surrounding this enterprise���consisting of
a big mining property systematically developed, the management by reliable business men of
this community whose records
are well known, assuring a conservative business administration���offers an' opportunity for
extraordinary profits to everyone
who wishes to share in the profits derived from a successful and
energetic development of a big
mining property.
To those interested we suggest
immediate action before the inevitable advance in the price of
shares.

STEWART SITE
IS IN DISPUTE
SEATTLE CAPITALIST WINS SUIT
FOR LAND
William A. McDonald Claimed to be
Partner of John W. Edgcomb, who
Sold Townsite to Mackenzie and
Mann.���Decision of Court Against
McDonsld.
Seattle, Sept. 23.���By a decision in
the Superior Court yesterday William
A McDonald, timberman, is denied
an accounting and the receivership of
property valued at approximately $1,-
000,000, formerly held by John W.
Edgcomb, timber and raining investor,
and which is now practically the entire townsite of Stewart, B. C, and
owned by the Canadian Northern Railway Company.
McDonald is also denied his prayer
for an injunction against Edgcomb
restraining the latter from disposing
of his interests or proceeding further
with the deals he has planned.
Mr. McDonald alleged in his complaint
that he had been a former partner of
Edgcomb in the Riverside Timber
Company, one of the largest corporations of its kind in the state, and that
by reason of this interest in the properties Edgcomb has acquired in Portland Canal mining district, and in the
town of Stewart, B. C.
William C. Keith, attorney for Edgcomb, read affidavits in which it is
set up that in the spring of 1909 Edgcomb acquired in his own name seventy-
five mining claims in the Portland
Canal district by taking options from the
owners of the mining properties for a
purchase price aggregating $1,000,000.
Subsequently  a  number  of  mining
corporations were organized for the
purpose of taking over the properties
acquired by Edgcomb, including water rights and land at Stewart, B. C.
In the fall of 1909 Edgcomb, it was
stated, borrowed $3000 from McDonald for the purpose of making a payment on some of the claims as required by his bond. In December of the
same year, on demand of McDonald,
this sum, Edgcomb claims, was repaid
by Edgcomb to McDonald.
The testimony was that in the spring
of 1910 Edgcomb assigned and sold
his bonds to William A. Mackenzie   and   Donald   Mann   of   Ontario,
president and vice-president respectively of the Canadian Northern Railway, who have since been operating
and developing the mining properties,
employing a large number of men,
and, in addition, have about completed the construction of the Portland
Canal Railway from the head of Portland Canal to their mines, and have
built a dock and wharf at an expenditure of $150,000, and the town of
Stewart, destined to be the western
terminus of the Canadian Northern
Railway, which now extends from
Winnipeg to Edmonton.

Letters to the Editor
License* and Progress
Sir,���Will you permit me to offer
through your columns a word of public
commendation to those advocates of
Reform and Progress���the promoters of
the liquor liceose law. Surely no more
disinterested efforts were ever put forth
for the moral uplift of a town. Then
what a boom it is to business; how the
money flies and how soon we shall be
rich, and how comforting to think that
no more shall the voice of the "blind
pig" be heard in the land.
Nevertheless we have a few things
against them and unless they repent
they shall all likewise perish. We rejoiced in the echoes of the dying pigs but
we are grieved to find that it was rather
a re-incarnation groan and that instead of a few blind pigs we have a whole
herd with their eyes wide open. Now
Sir, we don't like pigs and we want to
tell those gentlemen that if they can't
give us a better brand of quadrapeds
we are going to have a hand in the game.
We have given certain men a license to
sell liquors but we haven't given them
permission to turn our race into a swineherd. Why can't common-sense be
practiced behind the bar? Is the business
so encrusted with infamy that they become blind to their own well-fare? Does
not our license-law forbid the selling
of liquor to a drunken man and yet
never before was drunkenness so prevalent as now. Shall the aword wherewith
they slay become their slayer? Certainly
Reform and Progress will out and the
forces that make for it are so powerful
that if the liquor traffic or any other
obstacle stands in the way it shall be
ground to powder. Cave canem! We
have spoken!

Grading Sixth  Avenue
Prince Rupert"Optimist".
Dear Sirs,���I notice that ,a report
of the "Streets Committee" was submitted to the council last week, recommending the grading of Sixth avenue
from Fulton street to Summit avenue,
and that it was decided to refer the
petition back to the residents for their
decision. I am a property owner in
Prince Rupert in section six, and although
this is some distance (rom Summit
avenue, yet I would like to see Sixth
avenue graded in the neighborhood of
Acropolis Hill; plenty of rock is available at that point from the excavation
of the abandoned reservoir site and it
would be interesting for Prince Rupert
visitors to see a graded street, where
there are so many streets standing on
"stilts" as at present. It would give an
object lesson of what the permanent
Prince Rupert will be. What is of equal
importance it would also give employment to labor, and the money would
eventually come back to the property
owners in the way of increased business
to the stores, etc. I hope, therefore,
that the residents of Sixth avenue will
approve of the work being carried out.
Yours very truly,
F. J. KILNER.

before the shooting he had seen Reicher
helping his partner Beaudoin towards
the shack with considreable solicitude.
Beaudoin was drunk���foolishly drunk���
and shouted "Hallo Pete!" to Keogh
as he passed. Reicher was sober and
both able and anxious to take care of
his ipate. Next morning again the very
day of the shooting Keogh saw Reicher
passing to his own shack with a bottle.
Reicher said to Keogh that he had
something there to sober up Beaudoin
and get him straightened up a bit as he
was going to his own home. The men
always seemed on excellent terms,
said Keogh, and he had not heard of
them quarreling about money till after
the affair.
"I was surprised to hear that Beaudoin had been shot by Reicher," concluded the witness.
Reicher who had raised his head
during this evidence drew a long breath
and let it sink again to his chest as
Keogh left the box.
The charge was again read over to
the accused who merely said that he had
already given all the evidence he had
to give to the Chief of Police.
He was then formally committed for
trial at Vancouver, and the witnesses
were asked to sign recognizances binding
them to appear at the trial and give
their evidence if called upon.
Reicher was then returned to his cell.
ACCIDENT TO  YOUNG  LADY
Need For City Lighting Plant Again
Strongly Emphasized
The need for hurrying on the city
Electric Lighting Plant is again emphasized by the painful accident which
occurred last night to Miss Cusack
who resides in the Royal Hotel. Miss
Cusack was proceeding along Sixth
avenue yesterday evening accompanied
by Mrs. Quigley when she. fell off
the edge of the planking and down
several feet. She twisted her ankle
very severely fracturing a bone in it.
Assistance was obtained at once and
Miss Cusack was conveyed home in
the hack and Dr, Tremayne was called.
ThiB morning she is progressing as well
as can be expected considering the
painful nature of her injury.
Humboldt Loaded With Fiah
Steamer Humboldt got in last night,
heavily loaded with fiah from the
Alaska canneries and with about a dozen
passengers from the interior. No further
verification of the wreck of the Selkirk
on the Yukon River was obtained.
HELD MEETING YESTERDAY TO
FORM AUXILIARY
Officer. Appointed���Many Plan. Sug-
ge.ted, and Committee! Formed
to Arrange for Carrying Them Out.
Social Function* Proposed.
In response to the call for the establishment of a Women's Auxiliary of
the Hospital Association some twenty
or twenty-five women met in the Board
of Trade rooms yesterday afternoon.
Several members of the association were
present, explained the situation and the
necessity for the organization of a
Women's Auxiliary and after tendering
the ladies a vote of thanks for putting
in an appearance, kindly withdrew.
After some preliminary * discussion
as to the work to be done, namely, the
furnisihng of the hospital, the following
officers were elected: President, Mrs.
Eggert; Vice-President, Mre. Tite; aSec-
retary, Mrs. McCaffrey; Treasurer, Mrs.
Stork.
Various plans for raising funds were
suggested and it was resolved to give
a series of popular entertainments, the
following committees being appointed:
Dance Committee, Mrs. A. Manson,
convenes to arrange for-a ball on or about
October fourteenth; Concert Committee,
Officers asked to interview the school
principal and teachers in order to arrange for a school concert to be given
about October twenty-eighth; Tag Day
Committee, Mrs. Craig, convenes to
arrange date or dates, etc., and report
at the next meeting.
There will probably ba two or more
balls given under the auspices of the
Woman's Auxiliary���one on or about
the New Year if it does not conflict too
much with other arrangements, and
another later. Also a bazaar and food
fair about Easter and if possible another
concert or two.
At present the Auxiliary has not
imposed a membership fee, -but it may
be necessary to do so in order to keep
the importance of this work properly
before the members. It is desirable
that every woman, irrespective of nationality or creed, should have an interest
in this work, and make an effort to do
something to make it a great success.
A meeting is called for Tuesday next,
October 4, in the Board of Trade rooms
at 4 o'clock to make further arrangements and receive reports.
Prince   Ruport  This  Afternoon
Mr. McMaster is advised by wireless
that the steamer Prince Rupert will
arrive at four o'clock this afternoon.
