nand   a   Little   After   Eight   and
Quit Work at Once.
_,asi night's rain evidently had a bad
|ct upon the stevedores employed in
lading the Belle of Scotland for they
nt to the office of the Pacific Coast
yedoring Co., at ten   minutes past
it this morning and demanded an
(reuse in pay of ten cents an hour.
U- did not get it and now all is quiet
thf wharf. The busy scene of the past
days is no more and the men who
re been lying around idle for several
|_ks have resumed the same job.
The Pacific Coast Stevedoring Com-
; of Vancouver, has the contract of
ading the five thousand tons of
lei rails which the Belle of Scotland
blight around from Sydney for the
IT. P.  They also unloaded the other
five steamers and in each case they paid
forty cents an hour and there was no
trouble. That rate was started here and
was apparently satisfactory.
Capt. Mercier is representing the
Stevedoring Co., here and he told the
Optimist this morning that he had heard
absolutely nothing of the approaching
trouble until ten minutes after eight this
morning when the men all walked into
the office and demanded fifty cents an
hour. "I could not give it to them,"
said the captain, "and I asked them to
go back and work until Saturday night
to give me an opportunity to take the
matter up with the head officials in
Vancouver. This they refused to do and
quit work. They will stay out until
I get a reply from head quarters. I will
communicate with Vancouver during the
day."
The Belle of Scotland with Capt.
Nuttman in charge, has nothing to do
with the trouble. The Pacific Coast
Stevedoring Co., of Vancouver took the
contract of unloading and they will have
to handle the strike. In the meantime the
big ship is lying idle in the harbor and
losing valuable time. It is not thought
however that the trouble will last long.

surprise and no little wonderment, as

(Special to the Optimist)
Elliott, Mass., July 22-A fierce
fight took place here last night, taking
on some of the features of a race riot.
During the fighting the sheriff's posse
had to use their revolvers and five of the
negroes were shot dead and two others
so badly wounded that their death is
a matter of but a short time.
Sheriff Cauly went into a harvest
field near here to arrest a negro who had
broken jail. The other colored workers
threatened the sheriff and he came back
to town and swore in a posse. When he
again went to the farm to make the arrest
all the field hands advanced upon them
with pitchforks and the ensuing battle
was brief and bloody. The sherrif claims
his right arm was run through by a
pitchfork before he gave the order to
fire. In a few minutes seven of the laborers were stretched out and the rest fled.
No arrests have yet been made.
Mr. and Mrs. J. J- Chisholm left on
the Prince Rupert this morning for a
trip to Victoria. Mrs. F. G. Dawson,
who is with them, will go on to Vancouver
A vote of the people will be made
on August 8th to ascertain whether the
council will take the telephone plant
over and run it as a municipal enterprise
or not. This decision was arrived at
last night. It was also decided that only
telephone directories that were printed
would be published by the telephone
committee and the business people will
not be called upon to advertise in them.
Telephone  Directory
A communication was received from
E. C. Beard asking the privilege of
printing the city telephone directory.
He would supply it free if allowed the
privilege   of   inserting   advertisements.
The mayor opposed the idea of having
a directory full of advertisements. The
business men will only have to pay for
it and the telephone department should
be able to pay for its own directory, or
go without one.
Aid. Pattullo, Aid. Lynch and Aid.
Mobley agreed with the mayor and said
that there were three printing houses in
the city which could do all the printing
required.
Aid. Pattullo introduced a by-law
defining the duties of the city engineer
and staff.   It was read a first time and
Scotland Yard ia Silent and Makes

Arrests. Resume of Principal Points
In the Tragedy.
(Special to the Optimist;
London   July   22.���No   further  con-
i firmation has been received from Cardiff
| of the arrest there of Dr. Crippen and
; Mile. Levene, and it is thought to   be
merely a newpaper sensation.    It suc-
'��� ceeded in working up the public to a
j renewed  interest,   and  a  large  crowd
i assembled at Scotland Yard and waited
to a late hour in  the hope of some  important news being given out, but they
were disappointed.   The police officials
stated they have no further information
for the public.    There are rumors, of
course,   that   the   alleged   murderer's
whereabouts are known,but meantime the
newspapers are endeavoring to appease
the popular demand by reviewing the
whole story with here and there a new
point of minor interest,
This story of the finding of~the remains
of Belle Ellmore, a famouse vaudevulle
artist,  and  the sudden  disappearance
j of her husband, Dr. Hawley H. Crippen,
| has thrilled the people of the two con-
I tenents.   After the unrecognizable body
I of the woman was found in the cellar
of the doctor's residence it became tdear
that there was a murder, and the sudden
disappearance of Dr. Crippen, in view
i of his previous misrepresentations as to
| the death of his wife, pointed the finger
of suspicion at him so strongly that ex-
I perts say he is the murderer.
Belle Ellmore was treasurer of the
Music Hall Artists'Guild, and shortly
after her disappearance, in answer to
inquiries as to her whereabouts, a
notice of her death in California appeared in London papers. Though it
was generally credited, there were some
reasons for suspicion..
So frequent were the rumors of foul
play that the police questioned the doctor. For some reasons their interview
seemed   satisfactory,   but   immediately

PRINCE GEORGE ON HER WAY
New Steamer Leavea Vancouver  Tonight on Maiden Trip
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 22.���Steamer Prince
George will arrive here from Seattle at
mid-day and will leave on her maiden
trip to Prince Rupert this evening.
Telephone   Vote
City Solicitor Williams reported that
he attended a meeting of the Telephone
Committee held Wednesday night and he
had a copy of the agreement passed by
the company to transfer its assets to the
city. He asked if the council wished it
read. The company will require at least
part of the money in a shorter period
than one month and it would be necessary for the city to arrange with the
bank to advance the money pending the
issue of the debentures.
The agreement was then read. Solicitor Williams asked what the council's
policy would be in regard to the company
Would the council wind the company up
or would it be allowed to die.
The aldermen decided to wind it up.
Then it was decided to go ahead and
submit a by-law. The city clerk was
appointed returning officer and the
polling place will be at the city hall and
the polls will be open from 9 a.m. to
7 p.m. The election will be held on
August 8th.

CROSSETT HAS
GOLD PROPERTY
SAMUEL HARRISON VISITED THE
NEW MINERAL FIELD
Only a Proapect With About Ten
Feet of the Vein Uncovered���
Croaaett Has Taken Out Drills to
Do   Some   Development   Work.
Samuel Harrison visited the Crossett
gold claim about a quarter of a mile
back of the mouth of Bitter Creek.
He returned to Prince Rupert this
morning and stated that the discovery
is only a prospect yet. He has got about
ten feet uncovered and while he brought
into town several sa nples which showed
gold that is visible to the naked eye
and �� hich also carried copper, he cannot say, and neither can anyone else
say, what there is in the property. Mr.
Harrison, along with a number of Stewart
men went out and examined the rock.
To them it looked good and they do not
doubt but that Crossett has found gold,
but they cannot say how much. Crossett
has confidence, however, and has taken
out drills and other tools and will get
busy for a while to see what he really
has got. There has been no stampede,
however.
The new Grand Trunk Pacific division superintendent, G. A. McNicholl,
left on the Prince Rupert for a business
trip to Vancouver. He will probably return on the same steamer.
PERILOUS SLIDE
DOWN GLACIER
FRANCIS L. OTTER SLIPPED AND
ROLLED 300 FEET.
Companions Thought He Waa
Killed���Carried Jaa Lidden Along
With Him���Stopped When They
Struck a Boulder.
Francis L. Otter of Samuel Harrison
& Co's office at Stewart, slid 300 feet
down the side of a mountain while returning over the glacier from the gold
fields. His trip was a most hazardous one
and all his companions expected him to
be dead. He is still alive and is going
about the town as usual although a
little sore.
Otter, Harrison, Lidden and a number of others were crossing the glacier
on their return home. Jas. Lidden and
party was leaving Harrison and Otter
and he sat on the slide and started down.
Otter, who was picking his way along
the ice turned to see him and slipped.
He shot down the side of the mountain
like a streak of lightning. Harrison called
to Lidden who had stopped and as Otter
came down grabbed him, but he was
travelling too fast that the force took him
along also, and they rolled on down in
each others arms until they reached some
big boulders. Otter's back came in
contact with one of these and their
perilous trip was stopped. The men
above hurried down expecting to find
both men dead, but Lidden jumped up
and helped the others to fix Otter up.
His back was injured and his arms were
badly bruised. After a time he was able
to.proceed toward camp although the
pace was naturally a very slow one. He
will be all right however in a few days.
It was most fortunate that he did not
break a leg as it would have been impossible to have taken him home. It
would have been a case of leave him there
as the trip over the glacier is a ticklish
one and a man needs all his strength and
both arms and legs to make it
That part of the mountain down which
Otter went has since been called Otter
Slide. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

now claiming our attention, but shortly
work will be started an another section
lying immediately to the east of the
first one. No contract has yet been
awarded for this second section, but it
will not be long before one is let and work
will be started on it this year.
"At the eastern end of our line in
British Columbia we have not yet
started work. In one year's time we
will be working on the eastern end of
the road in this providce. We have
now a large working force building
westward into the Yellowhead from
Edmonton. Till that force reaches
British Columbia the eastern > end of
the road in this province will not be
touched. It is essential to constru-
tion at that point that we should have
our rails laid westward from Edmonton.
"On the western end of the Canadian' Northern in British Columbia
construction may be undertaken at
many points owing to the accessibility of our route. This will make for
speedy work and I am confident we
will have the entire line completed a
year ahead of time."
BUILDING   INSPECTOR
Ha* Been Busy Looking Aft.r Chimneys and Stov. Pip..
The Building Inspector has been
getting busy the past few dayB looking
after a number of things which will
tend to decrease the fire hazards in
the business district. He has secured
promises from nearly everyone who had
a defective chimney or a stove pipe on
the roof to put in proper chimneys at
once. B,e is albo looking after the
gasolene plants, arid the next thing will
be the rubbish heaps, loose paper, straw,
boxes, etc., that are left lying in piles
or loose. It is thought with the building
inspector and the fire chief, the police
force should take a hand. It is much
easier for a cop to have things cleaned up
and straightened out than for any other
official. The average person respects,
or at least fears, instructions from the
police, while other official orders are
assented to and forgotten. It is time
now that a whole lot of those things
were looked after.

were disappointed. The police officials
stated they have no further information
for the public. There are rumors, of
course, that the alleged murderer's
whereabouts are known,but meantime the
newspapers are endeavoring to appease
the popular demand by reviewing the
whole story with here and there a new
point of minor interest.
This story of the finding ofthe remains
of Belle Ellmore, a famouse vaudevulle
artist, and the sudden disappearance
of her husband, Dr. Hawley H. Crippen,
has thrilled the people of the two con-
tenents. After the unrecognizable body
of the woman was found in the cellar
of the doctor's residence it became clear
that there was a murder, and the sudden
disappearance of Dr. Crippen, in view
of his previous misrepresentations as to
the death of his wife, pointed the finger
of suspicion at him so strongly that experts say he is the murderer.
Belle Ellmore was treasurer of the
Music Hall Artists'Guild, and shortly
after her disappearance, in answer to
inquiries as to her whereabouts, a
notice of her death in California appeared in London papers. Though it
was generally credited, there were some
reasons for suspicion..
So frequent were the rumors of foul
play that the police questioned the doctor. For some reasons their interview
seemed   satisfactory,   but   immediately

(Special to the Optimist)
Elliott, Mass., July 22-A fierce
fight took place here last night, taking
on some of the features of a race riot.
During the fighting the sheriff's posse
had to use their revolvers and five of the
negroes were shot dead and two others
so badly wounded that their death is
a matter of but a short time.
Sheriff Cauly went into a harvest
field near here to arrest a negro who had
broken jail. The other colored workers
threatened the sheriff and he came back
to town and swore in a posse. When he
again went to the farm to make the arrest
all the field hands advanced upon them
with pitchforks and the ensuing battle
was brief and bloody. The sherrif claims
his right arm was run through by a
pitchfork before he gave the order to
fire. In a few minutes seven of the laborers were stretched out and the rest fled.
No arrests have yet been made.
Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Chisholm left on
the Prince Rupert this morning for a
trip to Victoria. Mrs. F. G. Dawson,

Telephone   Vote
City Solicitor Williams reported that
he attended a meeting of the Telephone
Committee held Wednesday night and he
had a copy of the agreement passed by
the company to transfer its assets to the
city He asked if the council wished it
read. The company will require at least
part of the money in a shorter period
than one month and it would be necessary for the city to arrange with the
bank to advance the money pending the
issue of the debentures.
The agreement was then read. Solicitor Williams asked what the council's
policy would be in regard to the company
Would the council wind the company up
or would it be allowed to die.
The aldermen decided to wind it up.
Then it was decided to go ahead and
submit a by-law. The city clerk was
appointed returning dfficer and the
polling place will be at the city hall and
the polls will be open from 9 a.m. to
7 p.m.' The election will be held on
August 8th.

CROSSETT HAS
GOLD PROPERTY
SAMUEL HARRISON VISITED THE
NEW MINERAL FIELD
Only a Prospect With About Ten
Feet of the Vein Uncovered���
Crossett Has Taken Out Drills to
Do  Some  Development  Work.
Samuel Harrison visited the Crossett
gold claim about a quarter of a mile
back of the mouth of Bitter Creek.
He returned to Prince Rupert this
morning and stated that the discovery
is only a prospect yet. He has got about
ten feet uncovered and while he brought
into town several sa nples which showed
gold that is visible to the naked eye
and which also carried copper, he cannot say, and neither can anyone else
say, what there is in the property. Mr.
Harrison, along with a number of Stewart
men went out and examined the rock.
To them it looked good and they do not
doubt but that Crossett has found gold,
but they cannot say how much. Crossett
has confidence, however, and has taken
out drills and other tools and will get
busy for a while to see what he really
has got. There has been no stampede,
however.
The new Grand Trunk Pacific division superintendent, G. A. McNicholl,
left on the Prince Rupert for a business
trip to Vancouver. He will probably return on the same steamer.   .
PERILOUS SLIDE
DOWN GLACIER
FRANCIS L. OTTER SLIPPED AND
ROLLED 300 FEET.
Companions Thought He Was
Killed���Carried Jas Lidden Along
With Him���Stopped When They
Struck a Boulder.
Francis L. Otter of Samuel Harrison
& Co's office at Stewart, slid 300 feet
down the side of a mountain while returning over the glacier from the gold
fields. His trip was a most hazardous one
and all his companions expected him to
be dead. He is still alive and is going
about the town as usual although a
little sore.
Otter, Harrison, Lidden and a number of others were crossing the glacier
on their return home. Jas. Lidden and
party was leaving Harrison and Otter
and he sat on the slide and started down.
Otter, who was picking his way along
the ice turned to see him and slipped.
He shot down the side of the mountain
like a streak of lightning. Harrison called
to Lidden who had stopped and as Otter
came down grabbed him, but he was
travelling too fast that the force took him
along also, and they rolled on down in
each others arms until they reached some
big boulders. Otter's back came in
contact with one of these and their
perilous trip was stopped. The men
above hurried down expecting to find
both men dead, but Lidden jumped up
and helped the others to fix Otter up.
His back was injured and his arms were
badly bruised. After a time he was able
to.proceed toward camp although the
pace was naturally a very slow one. He
will be all right however in a few days.
It was most fortunate that he did not
break a leg as it would have been impossible to have taken him home. It
would have been a case of leave him there
as the trip over the glacier is a ticklish
one and a man needs all his strength and
both arms and legs to make it
That part of the mountain down which
Otter went has since been called Otter

London, July 21.���The date of the
coronation of King George V. was announced nearly a week earlier than
was expected. His Majesty will be crowned in Westminster Abbey on June 22
next year.
Another departure is being made in
connection with the ceremony. The
oversea states will officially participate in the event. The members of the
governments of the Dominions will be
specially invited to take part, and will
be accorded definite official status.
A deputation today waited on Col.
Seely, under secretary of state for the
colonies, urging that the dominions
beyond the seas should receive special
recognition at the coronation. This
representation Col. Seely listened to
most sympathetically, and there is no
doubt but the required change in official procedure will be made.
and proceeded to establish a smelter.
Mr. Mann asks that Dr. Island be restrained from giving his time, services
and secrets to anyone else.

Dr. Island is the inventor of a process
for smelting low grade ore at a low

an option on the invention. He claims
that after giving him this option, Dr.
Island formed a company, which after
considering the offer made by Mr. Mann
refused  it  as not  being  high enough

A blind pig can usually see an officer approaching.
The hot-dry weather seems to have caused a drought in the local labor market.
Prince Rupert insists on being original and progressive.    One of the latest
is dementia gasolinia.
The water famine in the Grand Trunk creek from which we get our dally
supply of aqua pura has been temporarily suspended.
A Liberal correspondent inquires whether an "affiliated" Liberal means one

To-morrow the city council is going out to look for power. One would think
that being rulers of the greatest city in the world they would be satisfied with
their command.
If Premier Laurier is in good humor when he visits Prince Rupert he may be
induced to finish up the big wharf which the McBride Government
started some years ago.
The entertainment committee who are to look after Premier Laurier should
arrange for tbe weekly procession of transfer wagons-carrying four day's mail from
the Camosun to the post office.   This is one of the sights of the North country.
DR. CRIPPEN
NOT YET CAUGHT
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
afterward the doctor disappeared, as if
frightened. This disappearance of
course, stimulated inquiry, and the
Crippen home was at once searched,
with the result that a ghastly find
wit); unearthed. The body of a woman
was found, but it was partly destroyed
by quicklime and had been buried for
some weeks in the cellar. By the finding of the body and some other discoveries all doubt of the identity of the
corpse has been removed The indications
point to a cooly planned murder.
An investigation was begun and it
was learned that when the officers
visited Crippen they forced him to admit
that his wife had not died in California.
He then said that he and his wife had
quarreled and that the following the
quarrel she disappeared. The police
refused to accept his explanation because
of the fact that the woman was found
to have left her jewelry and money
behind.

London, July 22.���Lord Grey in his

early settlement of the Irish question,

is due to the fact that Colonel Roosevelt, when in England, pointed out that
if this were settled Great Britain and the
United States would be very near to an
important agreement.possibly an alliance.

There will be no council meeting until

"THE   NEW   NORTH"
Miss  Cameron's  New  Book   Commended by London Times.
Miss Agnes Deans Cameron's book,
"The New^North," is being favorably
reviewed by many critics, both in the
old and new world.   In a notice of Miss
Cameron's   latest   work,   the   London
Times, says:
"Miss Cameron is- a Canadian tempered in the tense life of Chicago, and,
when she made up her mind to "run as
far as God has any land," and not to
follow the lines of leaser resistence
from that midway metropolis, nothing
in the world would have prevented her
from traveling northward through Central Canada to the delta of the Mackenzie, the land's end in that direction.
A kindly humor (comparable with
that of Mark Twain's travel books) and
a gift of shrewd observation are revealed in her impressions of the people she met���Indians of several "nations" and Eskimos, English and French
pioneers and the various types of half-
caste.
Miss Cameron is most interesting
when she ceases to think of the spectacular development of the northwest and
introduces her readers to the makers
of this new north at their work and
at their play. She gives us a charming description of a ball at Fort Chip-
ewyan, that ancient seat of an inclusive
hospitality. Louis-the-Moose acted
as caller of the dancers, and none of the
dancers in moccasins on the earthen
floor (obviously the waltz is impossible
at Fort Chipewyan)dared to disobey his
orders.
Ladeez, join de lily-white han's,
Gents your black-and-tan!
Ladeez, bow! Gents, bow-wow!
Swing 'em as hard's ye can.
Swing your corner Lady,
Then the one you love!
Then your comer Lady, .
Then your Turtle Dove.
Many a picture of the kind she gives,
always allowing the Northerners to
talk their trans-Athabascan lingo. Here
are some specimens of their queer colloquialisms. "He reached out his hand
for a drink" rendered into that lingo
would be "He got his thievin* irons on
the joy juice," or "He stretched his
mud-hooks for the fight-water." "He
"set him afoot for his horse" means "He
stole his horse," and from this form
of expression is derived such phrases
as "He set him afoot for his blankets."
To call the tribe together the Indian
chief sends around little pieces of wood
and from this custom originates the
phrase "go send your chips" for a dance
or a business gathering.
AUTOMOBILE ORDERED
Machine   Costing   $8,100   Will   Be
Here in Three Months.
The Fire and Water Committee sent
an order today to Watkerville Ont for
a Seagrave combined hose and chemical
automobile. This machine will cost in
Walkerville $7,850 and $250' will be
the freight charges coming out, making a
total cost of $8,100. It will require,
according to*the agreement, three months
to get it here, but the committee will
be impressive upon the manufacturers
the urgency of the machine and it is
expected that it will be here sooner.
Gaaoline   Tanks
The Building By-law was passed its
third reading on Wednesday night and
finally adopted last night. It goes into
effect at once and the building inspector
has started to work under it. During
the past few days he has been visiting
the various places of business where
gasoline is used and acquainting the
proprietors with the regulations in the
by-laws governing the gasoline cans and
tanks.
Metal   Workers   Scrap
On July 14th, C. O. Roe, of the Prince
Rupert Sheet Metal Works, and John
Brown.ee, got in a mix up in the Helgerson building over the metal work.
As a result Roe was before the magistrate
this morning on a charge of assaulting
Brownlee. He was remanded until 2
o'clock Saturday afternoon when he will
be given a hearing.
Remanded   Again
G. T. Williams the self confessed
fire bug appeared before magistrate
Carss this morning, but on the request
of the prosecution, he was remanded
until Monday morning. Williams interests will be probably looked after by
L. W. Patmore. X..   "J

PRINCE  RUPERT SAILS
Made But a Short Stay on Her Return from Stewart
There was a hurry and a bustle on the
wharf soon after the Prinoe Rupert arrived this morning. She came in at 4:30,
and people were taken by surprise as
the time of her sailing for Vancouver had
been stated at one o'clock in the afternoon and at nine o'clock in the morning.
She sailed at 6:16 this morning, but it is
not known that anyone was disappointed.
She had sixty first class passengers,
among them being Mrs. Harrison, the
wife of the Rev. Charles Harrison, of
Masset, Mill Nellie Ives, of the Hotel
Masset; Bishop du Vernet, G. A. McNicholl, Mrs. G. F. Dawson, F. Clarke,
and Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Chisholm.

M. Aldous Telia Winnipeg*��� About
Prince    Rupert
M. Aldous, of Winnipeg, paid this
city a visit during the latter part of
last month, in the interest of a British
syndicate largely interested in property
here. When he returned to his native
city M. Aldous gave the following interview to the Free Prese.
"M. Aldous, of Montague Aldous &
Laing, has just returned from a trip to
Prince Rupert in connection with the
erection of buildings and the advancement of the property interests of a
European syndicate which he represents.
He was astounded at the development of
the place since he was there a year ago.
Then, he says, he found practically nothing but a little hamlet around the
dock, now there is a substantial, progressive town of between 4,000 and 5,000
people. Already it has sone twenty miles
of planked streets; and it is installing
telephone and electric lighting systems
which are expected to be in opeiation in
a very short time.
"Of course, Mr. Aldous says, the future
of Prince Rupert ultimately depends upon
the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, of which it is the terminal
point; but its importance is greatly enhanced by tributary resources.
"Take Queen Charlotte Island, for instance," said Mr. Aldous, "it is a future
realm in itself."
"Mr. Aldous regretted that he had not
time to go over, but he talked with a
number of people, who said that its
fisheries and minerals were immense,
while in climate, like Vancouver Island,
it was superior to the mainland."
BUYING MORE RAILWAY
Mackenzie and Mann Have Secured
Several   Ontario   Line*
Ottawa, July 20.���It is stated on good
authority that Mackenzie and Mann
have practically completed negotiations
for the purchase of Central Ontario,
Bay of Quinte, and Brockville and
Westport railways, aggregating some
284 miles of road. It is understood the
purchase of the Brockville and West-
port line, 44 miles in all, was completed
last week. Negotiations for the acquirements of the Central Ontario line,
132 miles north from Picton to Bancroft, and of the Bay of Quinte line
connecting Deseronto, Napanee, Tweed,
Harrowsmith, and Kingston with 108
miles of rails, have been in progress for
some months.
These lines will be valuable feeders
to the new C. N. R. line now under construction from Toronto to Montreal.

Furnished Rooms May Be
Rented Profitably.
Just to have "furnished rooms
to rent" is no great feat���or novelty. The number of people whose
homes are in furnished rooms���
"homes within homes"���is very
large.
And among the people who live
in "one room homes are an increasing number who like to have
things a little better than USUAL.
They like to have a pleasant
room, and they like to have it
fitted up DISTINCTIVELY, with
taste.
They will cheerfully, eagerly,
pay for SOMETHING BETTER
in the way of a furnished room.
Fix yours up to please the particular tenants, and ADVERTISE
ACCORDINGLY, and you'll get
back your investment with profit
in a very brief time.

Says the Country is Good���He Has
Great Confidence in it Now That
He Has Seen it���Hard Trip Over
the Mountains.
M. P. McCaffery, of McCaffery and
Gibbons, returned from a trip to Bitter
Creek and Stewart on the Prince Rupert
this morning. He spent a week in the
north and aside from doing considerable business in Stewart real estate he
made a trip to Portland Canal mine
which he was greatly impressed with,
and then he went over to the Bitter
Creek reef where he and the Gibbons
each have a claim which was staked by
Anderson. Their claims are among the
best and they have great value. As has
been stated before not enough work has
been done on the reef to show what really
is in the claims, but what he saw was
about 12 feet wide and had been uncovered for a distance of 3000 feet. He
is confident however, that the reef can
be followed much farther than that and
that the values will keep up.
Since he went up and saw it for himself Mr. McCaffery says he has a great
deal more confidence in the property.
In speaking of the trip he told the
Optimist that it was the best outing anyone could take. The climb over the
mountains is great; the scenery is wonderful; the weather was fine all the time.
"I climbed the mountains until all the
skin is worn off my heels. Coming back
I came alone and I wouldn't do it again
for a good deal. It would be a very easy
matter for a man to slip on the glacier
and roll into a crack and remain there
completely hidden from the world. The
old prospectors may say the trip to
Bitter Creek gold fields is easy but to
the tenderfoot it is hazardous and extremely tiresome.

The  London   Times  contrasting  Sir!
Wilfrid Laurier's present tour through
the west with his famous campaigning
trip of 1894 says:
"Sixteen years ago there was a cer-
tain hopelessness in great portions^of
the west. Population was coming in
slowly, communications were scanty
and inadequate, and the future seemed
dark. The Canadian Pacific was a sin-1
gle-track line with comparatively few i
branches; it now has branches in all]
directions, which are added to every |
year, and its main line is being double-
tracked. In addition, the Canadian
Northern and the Grand Trunk Pacific
are rapidly opening up vast territories,
into which streams of new settlers are
pouring. What were struggling towns
sixteen years ago are now great and
prosperous cities, what were villages
are towns on thc way to be cities, what
was prairie is covered with townships.
These places grow with a rapidity which
baffles all our Old World conceptions of
agricultural life. While an English
country town is getting a few sheets of
plate-glass in its principal street, a
Canadian village is equipping itself with
theatres, public halls, electric tramways, libraries and newspapers."

WATER   NOTICE
Growing Power of Went
When Sir Wilfrid Laurier became
Prime Minister of Canada the West had
ten members in the Dominion parliament. The number now is thirty-five
and it is probable that next year's Do
minion census will give the West a
representation of fifty-five members at
Ottawa. The West is destined to dominate in the affairs of the Dominion;
and the present century will not have
advanced very far on its course before
that destiny is fulfilled. ���Manitoba

BITTER CREEK
TOWNSITE
SPLENDID PROPERTY HAS BEEN
CHOSEN BY THE SYNDICATE
Eight Hundred Lots Will Be Put on
Sale���Location ii an Ideal One for
a Mining Town���Best Properties
Near at Hand.
Messrs. Gibson and Van Houten of
the Bitter Creel townsite syndicate are
in town today on business. The syndicate
have a beautiful property at the mouth
of Bitter Creek and Bear River containing about 800 lots in about 21
blocks. The land is good and it lays
well and if the mines develope as everyone believes they will, there will be a
good little town at Bitter Creek. All
the most promising prospects are almost
immediately adjoining Bitter Creek and
there is everything in its favor. The
syndicate are now applying for a crown
grant and it is expected that in a short
time the lots will be for sale.
Workmen's Compensation.
The appointment of Sir William
Meredith to inquire into and report on
workmen's compensation is another step
in an endeavor to bring this question into
bounds. The subject of workmen's
compensation has produced a long list
of intricate problems to be settled by
judical authorities. In Canada we have a
large number of Acts operative in the
various provinces. They differ materially
and it requires an expert to figure the
question of liability in a given case in
a given province. The report to the
Ontario Government by Sir William
Meredith will undoubtedly prove to be
a valuable contribution to the subject.
The Monetary Times hopes that it
will contain a reference to the desirability of uniform legislation relating to
workmen's compensation in Canada. The
provincial statutes tend to make more
complicated an already involved matter.

Delegations are arranging to waylay

he will be fully informed of every grievance that exists in this greater half of

character of the trip he will be presented
with addresses galore, the phraseology
and sentiment of which can not fail to
lecall recollections of something he has
heard before, the familiar voibi of an
old friend who will not be Senied.
