taking. Connecting this lake with another lake a couple of miles farther back
is a pretty little creek. The second lake
is 25 feet above the first and contains 200
acres.
So far as the storage capacity is concerned it is sufficient for a large electric
development plant. The main feature
will be the drainage area. The country
has not been surveyed yet and no in-
foimation is available. To the casual
observer the area appears large enough,
but the engineers will figure that out
and also the amount of power available.
One thing is certain and that is that
by means of a dam on the big lake and
probably one on the little lake every
drop of water can be conserved and
utalized. The conservation of waters
is one of the successes of the past few
years and many Ontario towns have
benefited to the extent of an even flow
of water and a steady service from the
power plants for twelve months out of
the year!
The flow of the water in the Trent
Valley canal, which connects the Georgian Bay and Lake Ontario at Trenton
by linking up the Kawartha lakes and
rivers, is today in complete control of
the canal officials. This has been accomplished by the Dominion Government building dams at various places
in the lakes and rivers and conserving
all the water from the Spring floods.
A flood on the Otonabee River is now
a thing of the past and no matter how
dry- the season may be the navigation
on the Trent canal is not affected.

DECORATION OF
PRINCE RUPERT
FOR RECEPTION OF SIR WILFRID
LAURIER   PARTY
Grand Arch at Foot of Sixth Street,
To Be Illuminated By Electricity���
Both Sides of Centre Street to Be
Hidden by Evergreens.
The committee of citizens appointed
by the council to undertake the decoration of the city for the reception
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and party, met
in the rooms of the Board of Trade on
Saturday evening. William Law presided and Mr. Crippen was elected
secretary.
The discussion as to what form the
decorations should take was a long one,
the committee being somewhat hampered by the absence of any suggestion
from the council as to the amount to be
expended. Many excellent suggestions
were offered and these crystallized at
last into a determination to build one
large and really fine arch instead of
several, and that is to be built of logs
with a thatch of evergreens as being
more appropriate to and suggestive of
the youngest great city of the Last West.
The site unanimously chosen was the
junction of Second avenue and Sixth
street, and it was there the people most
generally  assemble ordinarily  and  for
CRIPPEN AND LENEVE ARRESTED
Taken  Off Steamer  Montrose at Quebec.
Arraigned Before Court Thia_ Morning on Murder. Charge. Both
Pleading Innocence. ��� The Girl
May Turn King's Evidence.
(Special to the Optimist)
Quebec, August 1.���Dr. Crippen and
the Leneve girl were arrested the moment
the steamer Montrose arrived. A very
large crowd collected and there being no
doubt of their identity the sensational
news of their arrest was quickly cabled
to all parts of the world. This morning
the couple were formally arraigned at
Justice Anger's court, Dr. Crippen being charged with murder and Mile
Leneve with being an accessory before
the fact. Both protested their innocence
and they were remanded.
The prisoners are being kept in a cell
in the parliament buildings usually used
for politicial prisoners only. In the
doctor's pocket there was found a white
powder believed to be poison. An
analysis has been made of it but its
nature has not been disclosed. At the
time of the arrest on board the steamer
the girl was seen to throw something
through a parthole. What it was is a
matter for conjecture. Only ten dollars,
the powder and a vial almost empty
were found on Dr. Crippen.
Efforts have been made to induce the
girl to turn king's evidence but so far
without effect.
New   York,   August   1.���Frederick
Messinger, step-father of Mrs. Crippen,
is ready to go to London. He believes
Crippen should have a chance to tell
his side of the story. He says his daughter seemed to be happy with her husband
but undoubtedly the doctor had been
smitten-with the other woman's charms.
London, August 1.���The mother of
Mile Leneve is cabling her daughter
today to tell all she knows of the case to
the police, and says she does not think
her daughter knows of the crime.
It is reported the authorities have
found new evidence which will prove
that the body found at Hilltop Crescent
is that of Mrs. Crippen.
SHOT BY OWN MAN
Captain Peter Ellison, Royal Artillery
Is   Shot   Down
(Special to the Optimist)
. Victoria, August 1.���Captain Peter
Ellison, of the Royal Canadian Artillery,
was shot and killed this morning by one
of his men at work at Point barracks.
The soldiers, assisted by the police, are
now engaged on a man hunt.
Secured New Premises
F. B. Deacon, the real estate and
insurance man on Centre street, has
secured the premises formerly occupied
by the Royal Bank in the Alder Block
on Sixth street. He will take possession
about -the middle of the month. The
new quarters will be fitted up in good
shape and Mr. Deacon will have one
of the beet offices in the city as well as
one of the best locations.
other good and sufficient reasons. A
triple arch was suggested but its form
will depend upon the plans decided upon
by the architects. There were four
architects present, Messrs. Munro.Lailey,
Potter and Barker, and these were made
a sub committee on arch with the addition of Secretary Crippen.
It is proposed to illuminate this arch
FIRST TRAIN OVER NEW ZENARDI BRIDGE
Forty-three Miles Now Open for Construction Trains���Tug and
Barges Leave for Vancouver to Fetch Up Flat Cars
and Other Rolling Stock
���The government steamer Lillooet came
Tto the dock to coal this morning.
"The  Camosun  sailed  yesterday  for
���neouver at half past two in the after-
*>n with a full list of passengers.
The first construction train passed over
the Zenardi bridge at four o'clock yesterday afternoon and forty three milea of the
road is now open. Hurrah! This means a
sudden jump in the business that will be
done by Prince Rupert in the Skeena
river basin.
There were no fuss and feathers about
the opening, although it Is such an important and noteworthy an event. Mr.
Young, chief constructor of the Canadian Bridge company, reported to Superintendent Mehan on Saturday that ii
no untoward circumstance intervened
he thought a train might cross the bridge
on Sunday afternoon, so early the next
morning Mr. Mehan was on hand at
the bridge with locomotive 128, flat
cars and a gang of tracklayers. These
went right to work spiking the rails
across the bridge and at exactly four
o'clock m the afternoon the first construction train went over the bridge
with a string of flat cars behind it.
Mr. Mehan said this morning that the
bridge was perfectly safe, he having
tested it on Saturday and again yesterday
both before and after the train had gone
over it. The Bridge company, he observed, had been very successful in its
work, and had got along with it a great
deal better and quicker than even they
expected.
Of course, says Mr. Mehan, the bridge
is not completed by any means, but it is
in a safe condition for construction
trains to gp over it and they will run
regularly over it while the balance of the
work and the extra rivetting is being
done.
The track laying and ballasting as
far as Mile 43 was completed on Saturday and the gangs moved on to the next
section. Mr. Mehan was over the line
to that point on Saturday and found it
in excellent condition for a new track.
All the material and supplies will now
be run over the rails to that point and
further from day to day as the track
laying proceeds. The tugboat and the
barges Georgian and Escort, by means
of which material has been carried from
Prince Rupert for points above the bridge
have now been discontinued and will
leave tonight for Vancouver to bring
up ballast cars and other railway material
They will be constantly employed in
this work for the next three months.
The first construction train direct
from Prince Rupert left here at eight
o'clock this morning and in a few days
a regular schedule will probably be
arranged.
It was a remarkable coincidence that
the bridge over Zanardi, one of the main
engineering difficulties to be overcome
between the terminus and Yellowhead
Pass, should have been bridged and open
for traffic the very same day and within
an hour or so of the arrival of Collingwood Schreiber, the chief government
engineer of the road. He has been making
a survey of the line from Edmonton by
train and boat and horseback, and will
leave here by train for the trip over
Yellowhead Pass. He is accompanied
by Sidney R. Loftus. They came in on
the Prince George and are registered at
the Inn.
by electricity, and Messrs. Blakeley
and Parkin were chosen as a sub-committee to undertake this work. There
is to be mottoes and medallions on the
arch, with myriads of fairy and larger
lamps, the "juice" to be supplied from
the plants of the Grand Trunk and the
Empress theatre.
A sub-committee on street decorations
was selected, consisting of Messrs.
Babcock, Craig, and Crippen. The
suggestions comprised a row of fairly
large trees on either side of center street
up to the arch, intersperced with Venetian masts carrying festoons and
and flags. There may also be a small
arch.
The rest of the decorations are left
to individual taste and skill, the committee having confidence that every
building would make an enthusiastic
display. To further stimulate civic
pride the council authorized the committee to offer $60 in prizes for the best
decorated  buildings or   residences.

"From Sea to Sea" has been the title
of many books and poems, but it has
remained for one man, Charles Melville
Hays, president of the Grand Trunk
and Grand Trunk Pacific railways, to
write that legend across the North
American continent in a broad hand of
oak and steel that even the Douk-
hobor and the stray dog will recognize
when in a little while the whistle will
shrill at the crossing and the transcontinental limited will thunder by on
a new route from the Atlantic to the
Pacific.
Mr. Hays was born on May 16th, 1856,
at Rock Island, 111., and had his initiation in railway work in the passenger department of the old Atlantic & Pacific
railway at St. Louis, which he entered
at the age of 17. It was not long after
this���almost before he was old enough
to vote���that Talmage, vice president
and general manager of the Gould
roads, picked him out of the passenger
department to be his private secretary
and confidential clerk. In this connection
men tell a story that perhaps is the key
to Mr. Hay's success.
Talmage knew just what sort of young
fellow he wanted, and for some time had
been looking about for him. One day he
strolled into the passenger department
just a little before lunch hour, and looked
over the landscape. Half of the clerks
in the office "rubbered" when the "boss"
came in. Some of them were putting on
their coats; some leaving for the washroom; some consulting the clock; some
were still busy. Among these last was
young Hays, who seemed dead to the
world, and Talmage, approaching him,
inquired the time of day. The young man
kept on figuring, and Talmage put a
hand on his desk, repeating the question.
Instantly Hays looked up, surprised
to see the big chief at his elbow.
"I beg your pardon���were you speaking to me?" he asked.
"Merely inquired the time���that was
all," said Talmage.
Hays glanced about the room, located
the clock, and said:
"It's eleven-fifty."
"Thank you," said the general manager and vice president strolling out.
That conversation cost young Hays his
job���in the passenger department���
and put him under Talmage on the firing
line where he could see the "big guns"
in action. Nine years later he was assistant general manager, and while still
in the thirties became a general manager
full-fledged.
As far back as 1896, when Mr. Hays
wasc general manager of the Grand
Trunk, he dreamed of an extension
that would give that railway a sea-to-sea
route. However, being only general
manager at that time, he was not in a
position to put his plans into effect.
Thereafter he went to the Southern
Pacific, accepting the presidency of
that road when it was under Collia P.
Huntington. After Harriman took over
the road, he returned to the Grand Trunk
as vice president and general manager and
upon his return he determined to carry
his old plan into effect. Working to that
end with the English and Canadian
owners of the road, and coupling with
this a campaign in the Canadian parliament, he succeeded in having his plans
adopted and financed.
It is no small matter to plan, execute
and complete a system of 3,600 miles
of road, secure $100,000,000 private
capital, and get a government to supply
an equal amount. Mr. Hays did not
manage this Herculean task single-
handed, yet it is due to his efforts that
all obstacles were finally surmounted,
and the line is now nearing completion.
Millions of bushels of wheat were hauled
this year over the prairie section between
Edmonton and Winnipeg, where a new
outlet for the grain was greatly needed.
Since his return to the Grand Trunk,
Mr. Hays has finished the double track
from Chicago to Niagara Falls, and on
to Montreal. He has changed the old
Grand Trunk from its former position
to one of the best railways in America.
He has built another general office
building in Montreal, elevated the
tracks in Chicago, electrified the St.
Clair tunnel, and is now building a handsome union station and a magnificent
hotel, the Chateau Laurier, at the
Canadian capital. Meanwhile, the gross
earnings of the old system have increased
57 per cent, and the net earnings 60
per cent.
At the beginning of this year, Mr. Hays
was made president of the Grand Trunk
railway system, and is now at the head
of all the Grand Trunks; and with his
wide range of interests and the personal
direction of the road, he is one of the
busiest men in Canada today���Humane
Life.
It will be interesting to know that
Dr. J. B. Calkins was doctor for the
Talmage road when Mr. Hays was confidential clerk to the vice-president.
Dr. Calkins went home one day and told
his son, J. M. Calkins, who is now associated with Westenhaver Bros., that
Mr. Hays could write as fast as the vice
president could talk. That set J. M.
thinking and he decided that he would
be a shorthand writer also. He studied
the Graham system, the same as used
by Hays, and when he accomplished it
he took a position as Court stenographer
and from that has worked along at
different jobs until he landed in Prince
Rupert a year or two ago, and he intends to remain. It was the fact that
Chas. M. Hays could write as fast as a
man could talk that started J. M.
Calkins on the road to success.

is a pretty little creek. The second lake
is 25 feet above the first and contains 200
acres.
So far as the storage capacity is concerned it is sufficient for a large electric
development plant. The main feature
will be the drainage area. The country
has not been surveyed yet and no in-
fotmation is available. To the casual
observer the area appears large enough,
but the engineers will figure that out
and also the amount of power available.
One thing is certain and that is that
by means of a dam on the big lake and
probably one on the little lake every
drop of water can be conserved and
utalized. The conservation of waters
is one of the successes of the past few
years and many Ontario towns have
benefited to the extent of an even flow
of water and a steady service from the
power plants for twelve months out of
the yeari
The flow of the water in the Trent
Valley canal, which connects the Georgian Bay and Lake Ontario at Trenton
by linking up the Kawartha lakes and
rivers, is today in complete control of
the canal officials. This has been accomplished by the Dominion Government building dams at various places
in the lakes and rivers and conserving
all the water from the Spring floods.
A flood on the Otonabee River is now
a tiling of the past and no matter how
dry-the season may be the navigation
on the Trent canal is not affected.

DECORATION OF
PRINCE RUPERT
FOR RECEPTION OF SIR WILFRID
LAURIER   PARTY
Grand Arch at Foot of Sixth Street,
To Be Illuminated By Electricity���
Both Sides of Centre Street to Be
Hidden by Evergreens.
The committee of citizens appointed
by the council to undertake the decoration of the city for the reception
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and party, met
in the rooms of the Board of Trade on
Saturday evening. William Law presided and Mr. Crippen was elected
secretary.
The discussion as to what form the
decorations should take was a long one,
the committee being somewhat hampered by the absence of any suggestion
from the council as to the amount to be
expended. Many excellent suggestions
were offered and these crystallized at
last into a determination to build one
large and really fine arch instead of
several, and that is to be built of logs
with a thatch of evergreens as being
more appropriate to and suggestive of
the youngest great city of the Last West.
The site unanimously chosen was the
junction of Second avenue and Sixth
street, and it was there the people most
generally  assemble ordinarily  and  for
CRIPPEN AND LENEVE ARRESTED
Taken  Off  Steamer  Montrose at Quebec.
Arraigned Before Court Thiei Morning on Murder. Charge. Both
Pleading Innocence. ��� The Girl
May Turn King's Evidence.
(Special to the Optimist)
Quebec, August 1.���Dr. Crippen and
the Leneve girl were arrested the moment
the steamer Montrose arrived. A very
large crowd collected and there being no
doubt of their identity the sensational
news of their arrest was quickly cabled
to all parts of the world. This morning
the couple were formally arraigned at
Justice Anger's court, Dr. Crippen being charged with murder and Mile
Leneve with being an accessory before
the fact. Both protested their innocence
and they were remanded.
The prisoners are being kept in a cell
in the parliament buildings usually used
for politicial prisoners only. In the
doctor's pocket there was found a white
powder believed to be poison. An
analysis has been made of it but its
nature has not been disclosed. At the
time of the arrest on board the steamer
the girl was seen to throw something
through a parthole. What it was is a
matter for conjecture. Only ten dollars,
the powder and a vial almost empty
were found on Dr. Crippen.
Efforts have been made to induce the
girl to turn king's evidence but so far
without effect.
is ready to go to London. He believes
Crippen should have a chance to tell
his side of the story. He says his daughter seemed to be happy with her husband
but undoubtedly the doctor had been
smitten with the other woman's charms.
London, August 1.���The mother of
Mile Leneve is cabling her daughter
today to tell all she knows of the case to
the police, and says she does not think
her daughter knows of the crime.
It is reported the authorities have
found new evidence which will prove
that the body found at Hilltop Crescent
is that of Mrs. Crippen.

Ellison, of the Royal Canadian Artillery,
was shot and killed this morning by one

The soldiers, assisted by the police, are
now engaged on a man hunt.
Secured New Premises
F. B. Deacon, the real estate and
insurance man on Centre street, has
secured the premises formerly occupied
by the Royal Bank in the Alder Block
on Sixth street. He will take possession
about the middle of the month. The
new quarters will be fitted up in good
shape and Mr. Deacon will have one
of the best offices in the city as well as
one of the best locations.
other good and sufficient reasons. A
triple arch was suggested but its form
will depend upon the plans decided upon
by the architects. There were four
architects present, Messrs. Munro.Lailey,
Potter and Barker, and these were made
a sub committee on arch with the addition of Secretary Crippen.
It is proposed to illuminate this arch
FIRST TRAIN OVER NEW ZENARDI BRIDGE
Forty-three Miles Now Open for Construction Trains���Tug and
Barges Leave for Vancouver to Fetch Up Flat Cars
and Other Rolling Stock
The government steamer Lillooet came
|to the dock to coal this morning.
"The  Camosun   Bailed  yesterday   for
pouver at half past two in the after-
Ion with a full list of passengers.
The first construction train passed over
the Zenardi bridge at four o'clock yesterday afternoon and forty three miles of the
road is now open. Hurrah! This means a
sudden jump in the business that will be
done by Prince Rupert in the Skeena
river basin.
There were no fuss and feathers about
the opening, although it is such an important and noteworthy an event. Mr.
Young, chief constructor of the Canadian Bridge company, reported to Superintendent Mehan on Saturday that if
no untoward circumstance intervened
he thought a train might cross the bridge
on Sunday afternoon, so early the next
morning Mr. Mehan was on hand at
the bridge with locomotive 123, flat
cars and a gang of tracklayers. These
went right to work spiking the rails
across the bridge and at exactly four
o'clock m the afternoon the first construction train went over the bridge
with a string of flat cars behind it.
Mr Mehan said this morning that the
bridge was perfectly safe, he having
tested it on Saturday and again yesterday
both before and after the train had gone
over it. The Bridge company, he observed, had been very successful in its
work, and had got along with it a great
deal better and quicker than even they
expected.
Of course, says Mr. Mehan, the bridge
is not completed by any means, but it is
in a safe condition for construction
trains to go over it and they will run
regularly over it while the balance of the
work and the extra rivetting is being
done.
The track laying and ballasting as
far as Mile 43 was completed on Saturday and the gangs moved on to the next
section. Mr. Mehan was over the line
to that point on Saturday and found it
in excellent condition for a new track.
All the material and supplies will now
be run over the rails to that point and
further from day to day as the track
laying proceeds. The tugboat and the
barges Georgian and Escort, by means
of which material has been carried from
Prince Rupert for points above the bridge
have now been discontinued and will
leave tonight for Vancouver to bring
up ballast cars and other railway material
They will be constantly employed in
this work for the next three months.
The first construction train direct
from Prince Rupert left here at eight
o'clock this morning and in a few days
a regular schedule will probably be
arranged.
It was a remarkable coincidence that
the bridge over Zanardi, one of the main
engineering difficulties to be overcome
between the terminus and Yellowhead
Pass, should have been bridged and open
for traffic the very same day and within
an hour or so of the arrival of Collingwood Schreiber, the chief government
engineer of the road. He has been making
a survey of the line from Edmonton by
train and boat and horseback, and will
leave here by train for the trip over
Yellowhead Pass. He is accompanied
by Sidney R. Loftus. They came in on
the Prince George and are registered at
the Inn.
by electricity, and Messrs. Blakeley
and Parkin were chosen as a sub-committee to undertake this work. There
is to be mottoes and medallions on the
arch, with myriads of fairy and larger
lamps, the "juice" to be supplied from
the plants of the Grand Trunk and the
Empress theatre.
A sub-committee on street decorations
was selected, consisting of Messrs.
Babcock, Craig, and Crippen. The
suggestions comprised a row of fairly
large trees on either side of center street
up to the arch, intersperced with Venetian masts carrying festoons and
and flags. There may also be a small
arch.
The rest of the decorations are left
to individual taste and skill, the committee having confidence that every
building would make an enthusiastic
display. To further stimulate civic
pride the council authorized the committee to offer (SO in prizes for the best
decorated  buildings or   residences.

FIVE THOUSAND

GREAT   RAILWAY
Consulting Engineer Schrieber Says
Grand T.-unk Must Have Eight
Thousand Mote Men or No Knowing When Road Will Be Finished.
Winnipeg, July 26.���"Eight thousand
more laborers could be used on the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific
if we could get them," said Collingwood
Schrieber, government consulting engineer on the G. T. P. in an interview
at Edmonton.
"If the present labor regulations, and
the present condition cf the labor
market is to continue, there is no saying when the Grand Trunk Pacific will
be completed. The labor we need is
not in the country and we are not allowed to bring it in, only under certain conditions. I do not even see
how the farmers are going to handle
their harvests, labor is so scarce.
"The Grand Trunk Pacific could
easily use 8,000 mere men on the construction at the Edmonton and Prince
Rupert ends, Five thousand more are
needed today at Prince Rupert end.
but it is impossible to get nearly this
number."
Mr. Schrieber is going to the Yellowhead Pass to inspect the progress
of the work on the G. T. P., west of Ed-
son.
Reserv/ng Water Powers
It is unofficially announced from
Ottawa that the Dominion Conservation Commission will recommend to
the Government that all water-powers
not already disposed of to private
interests will be held by the Government for public use, not being even
leased to private interests except upon
such terms as will make their reversion to the Crown an easy matter.
This is pretty good doctrine, and it
is hoped that the Government will
give it favorable consideration.���Hamilton Spectator.

Sate 20th May, 1910, 3. D. Emmon., Agent
Pub. July 11.
Victoria, July 26.���Careful consideration is being given by Premier McBride to representations made by
Mayor Robinson and J. P. Shaw, M. P.
P., as to the desirability of inducing
the Canadian Northern railway to
bring their main line through Kamloops instead of reaching that city by
a spur, to become later a part of the
Okanagan division. The suggestion
has been made that the railway company might be found willing to accept
a compromise and establish its shops,
giving employment to a community of
perhaps five hundred, very close to
Kamloops and virtually connecting
that city by its natural growth with
the main line a few miles away rather
than creating a new railway city apart
from and a possible rival of Kamloops. All features of the case will
be taken up on D. D. Mann's arrival
from Stewart and the Kamloopsians
are satisfied their interests are safe
in the premier's hands.
An interview has been arranged with
the premier by Jean Wilkenstein, president and manager of the Alaska and
British Columbia railway and Mr. Ron-
ertson, provincial counsel, for that company tomorrow. The company has
been doing certain reconnaissance work
this season and proposes to build from
Vancouver by way of Lytton to Fort
George District.

Monday, Aug. 1
THEORY AND  PRACTISE
On Thursday the Optimist editorially criticized Aid. Lynch and his policy of
frontage and general taxation. The alderman replied by letter the same day as
follows:
"You will please stop the ad. now running in the Optimist until further notice.
Yours very truly, Lynch Bros."
This is from the man who smells graft in every job in which he is not himself
interested and who is habitually muck-raking the magna charta, Tweedie and other
events of ancient history. Aid. Lynch would have one believe that he is the essence
of uprighteousness, the soul of justice and a well of understanding on municipal
affairs. AH these and more are advertised in his public utterances. Yet he intimates
in his novel retort to the Optimist that the carrying of some advertising space in a
paper ought to protect him from criticism; that for a few paltry dollars a month he
could purchase a daily papers' silence, or by retaliating against the business department he could black-mail the editorial columns. Ib it not a sweet confession
of practical politics on the part of a man who poses as a theorist on efficient and
honest legislation?
As usual Aid. Lynch is wrong. The Optimist will accept neither graft nor
hush money. Neither will it resort to black-mail. There may be papers here with
the tactics of Col. Mann but The Optimist iB above the dirty game. When a public
man has anything coming to him, either criticism or praise he will get it from The
Optimist without fear or favor.
The public will stand for some queer ideas when they believe a man to be
sincere but when a man unveils himself as has Aid. Lynch he cannot expect public
respect.
Maybe King Jack Miller told the council not to start anything until he returned from his summer holidays.
,' j    It is rather early for the city council to go fallow but what can one expect
of an organization that is afraid to advertise in the daily papers.
Having planned to saddle section one with the burden of street grading Aid.
Lynch thinks it is only fair that we should all chip in and buy sewers for the boys
; in the business section.
GEORGETOWN
WATER POWER
CONTINUED FROM  PAGE 1
Georgetown water power on much
smaller scale, will give perfect control
over the waters of the lakes and creeks
and none will be wasted and the flow
will not fluctuate. The water will be
backed up and saved during the early
summer floods until the winter when the
snow lies on the mountains and the water
supply is usually the lowest.
City Engineer Davis is acquainted
with the principal of conserving waters
and he expressed himself as favorably
disposed to the Georgetown power.
"We can tell something about this power
as it is partially developed." he said.
"There is not nearly so much guess work
about it. That one lake is large enough
to hold lots of water and we can build
the dam any height we like."
Upon arrival at the lake the party
got into a couple of boats and paddled
up to the head of the lake, all were
pleasantly surprised at the size of the
lake and the surrounding shores which
are ideal for holding water. They are
high and steep and there is no flat land
to be flooded and no farm land to purchase. It is simply a case of building a
dam and putting in the development
plant. The lake has a 75 foot head which
is large enough for any water power.
It can be raised 25 or 60 feet more if
necessary, or raised to the level of the
second lake a couple of miles back.
Returning to the mill the Prince
Rupert people were entertained to
luncheon by Mr. and Mrs. Peck and to
say that this kindness was appreciated
is putting it mild. The start for home
was made about half past five.

Jv 21-lm
Hon. Frank Oliver, minister of the
interior, arrived here on Saturday, on
the Princess Royal from Skagway at the
end of his long trip of thousands of miles
into the wilderness of the far north,
which has proven him to be a real minister of the interior. Although one of the
most important members of the federal
government, there was no reception
offered him for the very simple reason
that no information has been received
that he was on his way here. He just
slipped in and out again, for the Royal
on her way to Vancouver for the north
made but a brief stay here. Dr. Reddie,
in the course of his official duty as immigration officer, met the minister on
board and had the pleasure of showing
the distinguished visitor a part of the
city. Mr. Oliver expressed himself
pleased with all he saw, and said that
although the progress made was wonderful it possibly would not compare with
the rapidity of the city's progress from
now on.
Directly upon his return from Europe
this spring Mr. Oliver visited at his
home in Edmonton and from there
started on a tour of exploration to the
fartherest point of the Canadian Northwest, Herschel island in the Arctic
ocean. Accompanied only by his private
secretary he set out due north for
Athabasca lake and from there up the
Slave river to Great Slave lake, in which
the great Mackenzie river, flowing some
two thousand miles to the Arctic ocean,
has its source. In this part of the journey
Mr. Oliver took advantage of the Hudson
Bay steamers, and he had an escort of
the Royal Northwest Mounted Police
from point to point and on the side
trips, so there was no great hardships
or privations to bs experienced. But
the journey back from Fort McPherson,
at the mouth of the Mackenzie, well
provisioned and attended as the minister
undoubtedly was, was one to test the
courage and endurance of a much
younger and more robust man.
This part of the trip began with a
"mush" or walk of over ninety miles,
over parts of which Indian trail neither
dogs nor horses could be used even as
pack animals. It is over a winding trail
rarely travelled and it takes a clever
guide to pick it out from the man, moose
and caribou tracks which cross and intersect it. At the end of this hazardous
and ardous stretch through the wilderness the Porcupine river is reached, a
river that in volume compares with the
Skeena but is much more' precipitous
and in its upper reaches only to be
travelled by canoe and even then by
means of many portages owing to its
many rapids. Coming down to Rampart House, the last stand made by
the Hudson Bay company west of the
Rockies, severald esperate mining enterprises were passed, notably that of
Al Bartlette, who raised some $50,000
in Seattle last winter to take a large
party of prospectors in there. There
was no less than seven hundred miles
of this canoe travel down the tortuous
and turbulent Porcupine river to negotiate before the Yukon was reached
at Fort Yukon and the luxury of a great
Northern Commercial river steamer
enjoyed.
Mr. Oliver spent two weeks in Dawson
nearly every day of which was on the
creeks, noting the placer mining by
individuals and the operations of the
great hydraulic and dredging companies.
From here Mr. Oliver goes to Vancouver and then home to Edmonton.
He expects to meet Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and party at Moosejaw on the 5th and
to 'ourney with them to Edmonton to
have the pleasure of introducing Sir
Wilfrid to a monster mass meeting held
there in his honor on August 9th.
MASQUERADE  CARNIVAL
Was Well Attended by Maaqueraders
And    Spectators
The first masquerade carnival in
Prince Rupert's fine new roller rink on
Sixth avenue was held on Saturday
night and was attended by a large
number of spectators. The rink was
prettily decorated for the event and the
floor in excellent condition for skating.
About thirty masqueraders were oh
the floor, representative of all nationalities and callings, and the majority of
them were well made up. There was a
agreeable scarcity of those who imagine
all they have to do is to daub burnt
cork on the face and take the prize.
The names of the prize winners were
not given the press but popular opinion
took a different view of the merits of
the masqueraders. The clown was an
easy winner in his class and well
deserved the prize, but it was thought
the "kid in yellow" should have received a first. She was very neatly
costumed and there was a grace to her
skating that was painfully lacking in the
lucky ones. The representation of
Halley's comet was something new and
was well received.
Music was furnished by a native
orchestra and was above the average.
Altogether it was a most enjoyable affair
and the management are to be congratulated on its success.
Council   Meeting
There was no council meeting on
Saturday night on account of several
of the aldermen and the mayor being
out of town. The meeting will be held
tonight as usual.
John Conway left Friday night for
Stewart where he has opened the mining
recorders cffice. He took Mrs. Conway
and family with him and they will make
their home in the northern town in
future.
Prof. Macdonald gives a free lecture
at the Methodist Church at 8 o'clock
this evening on Making Life a Success.
All will get helpful pointers. He gives
phrenological advice daily at the G. T.
P. Hotel annex.
The Prin cessMay arrives from Vancouver tonight on her way to Skagway.
She carries mail.

surprising if such should be the case
in a couple of years or so. The Mid-
West must have some Cabinet representation after the census. Walter
Scott is coming in as representative of
Saskatchewan, and why should not
"Jack" Dafoe represent Manitoba?
With these two and Frank Oliver,

HOLMAN GOT OFF
Charged   With   Wounding   a   Man
At   Hazelton.
Chas. Holman appeared before Judge
Young at Hazelton last week on a
charge of wounding a man in one of the
camp's near that town. Holman first
desired a jury trial and was taken south
to wait for the sessions. In the meantime
he changed his mind and asked for a
speedy trial, He was brought back
and Judge Young heard the case. The
evidence was not sufficient to warrant
a conviction and Holman was dismissed.
There were also several civil cases
disposed of by the judge and court was
adjourned in time to allow him to get
the boat down, and he arrived in Prince
Rupert Friday afternoon.
Sprained His Ankle
J. H. Pillsbury was out with a launching party yesterday and while they were
hunting clams and crabs he had the misfortune to sprain his ankle and will
be laid up for a day or two.
DAILY MAIL NOW
Port Ellington Has a Cinch on Local
Mail    Facilities.
The postal authorities have arranged
for a daily mail service for Port Essington by the steamer Chieftain. This
clears up many odds and ends of the
postal service, and is of great con-
vemience because of the many changes
of address of men who float in and out
of that district.
While the Port Simpson is off the run
doing the pioneer stunt on the waters
of the Stickine, the steamer Inlander
is carrying the mails for Hazelton
and all up river points above Essington.
Fire   Warden   Here
Geo. A. Kerr, fire warden for the
Skeena district, arrived in town last week
and is looking after some business here.
He states that he has been very busy
the last few weeks looking after bush
fires, but has been successful so far in
preventing a big blaze.
