DYNAMITE FOR CHINAMEN.
A Dastardly Plot to Blow Up Colonist Train Discovered in
Vancouver.
Vancouver, May 16,���A horrible and
dastardly plot to kill scores of human
beings was unearthed here. A special
train carrying 120 Chinese in bond bound
east, was just about to start on its
journey yesterday when dynamite, with
fuse and caps, was discovered in one of
the stoves of the colonist cars.
A search was immediately made and
the stoves in each of the other cars were
found similarly tieated. The dynamite
and fuse was covered with, paper and
wood as if arranged for kindling. If
the fires had been stated, a terrible
wreck and loss pf life must have resulted. ���>,
No trace of the perpetrators of the
foul plot has been discovered.
PREMIER LEAVES ON JULY 7th.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Will Visit Prince
Rupert About First Week
in August.
Ottawa, May 16,���Sir Wilfred Laurier, premier of the Dominion, accompanied by Hon. George P. Graham, minister
of Railways and Canals,E.M.Macdonald
M. ?'., and Fred Pardee, M. P., will
leave Ottawa on July 7th, for a sixty
days political tour of western Canada.
They will reach the Pacific Coast about
the first week in August and address
meetings in Victoria, Vancouver and
Prince Rupert.
TELEGRAPHIC BRIEFS.
Kansas City, ���The jury found Dr,
Hyde guilty of murder in the first
degree and he was sentenced to the
penitentiary for life.
Seattle, May 16,���Charles I, an educated monkey valued $10,000 because
of earning powers was smothered in a
baggage car between here'and Portland.
Los Angelos, May 16,���An earthquake
is reported in several southern Call-
fornian cities. It is the most severe in
years. Riverside, Santa Ana report
damage. At Santa Maragita a man
terrified leaped through the window of
a cafe taking sash with him.
London, May 16,���Official courtesies
having been exchanged, Roosevelt proceeded to Buckingham palace where
he viewed the body of the King Edward
VII. He then went to Marlborojugh house
where Ambassador Reid presented him
to King George. Rich Americans are
responsible for the high price of seats
along the line march. A rich American
purchased a store room from small
merchant for $6,000. Others have paid
similar prices.
SEVEN REASONS
WHY   MANSON   SHOULD   BE
ELECTED.
BECAUSE he has a better knowledge of
Prince SHupert's civic affairs
than anyone else. ._,
BECAUSE his honesty arid integity is
above reproach. .. .
BECAUSE he - thoroughly understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing' municipal work,
must go fqr.heavy loans
demand a big; clean man who
has had experience in handling public funds.  '
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organising the
. civic administration.
���CAW he has the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
BECAUSE his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no
room for juggling.
Humorous Incident.
An amusing incident took place on
Saturday evening at the close of the
Manson rally. After the National
Anthem had been sung,. a man who had
just entered the hall stood up on one
of the back benches and asked permission to ask a question. Some one
said "go ahead" and he then asked
in dramatic tones, "Why is it that every
blindpig in Prince Rupert is supporting
FredStork?" As no one volunteered a reply the gentleman in question made his
way to the platform and said he would
answer the question himself. He said
it was because they did not want Manson
for mayor, as they were afraid he would
soon put an end to their business.
There are seventy-five blind pigs
in Prince Rupert and I have visited
them all during the past few days, and
in each pf themthe owner is wearing the
Stork button." He closed with the
prophesy that, if Stork is elected, that
that baby���the one that the Stork is
carrying suspended from its mouth,
or in other words Prince Rupert���would
take a fall and when it did it would
fall into a hundred and fifty blind pigs,
or twice as many as existed at the present: time, . After these pptent remarks,
the; wanderer strolled out sgsfa.irrto
the. cool, night, sir.    j
BROTHER AND SISTER DROWNED.
Vancouver, May 16,���On Sunday,
while picnicking on the btnks of the
Captlano river,  which, supplies  Van
couver with water, Minnie Pement
of this city, aged 16 years, fell in.
Her brother Albeit plunged, into the
water to rescue her, both were drowned.
I ENGLISH IMMIGRATION.
i
London, May 16,���The question of
English immigration to Canada is
receiving particular attention just now
owing to Canada's stipulation that
assisted emigrants must be willing to
work on land that is a farm. Sir Clement
Kinloss Cooke, M. P., chairman of the
emigration board is working assiduously
to have this restriction removed, believing that it is depriving the Dominion
of many artisans who, though assisted
in their passage to Canada, will eventually prove desirable inhabitants of
that  land.
"My great desire is to see labour
exchanges throughout the British Empire. This will tend to do away with,
starvation and settle unemployment
question. Through these exchanges
men would learn where there was a
demand for their services and desirable
workmen could be assisted."
PREPARATIONS FOR FUNERAL.
London, May 16,���Whole court and
all London is absorbed in 'the preparations for the burial of King Edward VII,
which will be the most imposing ceremonial Great Britain's capital has ever
witnessed. The city will have the appearance of an invested town for two
day*   -It is said that 7f&0OD people
1.1111   Wist   Iannis   WisMfciiis   mm*
|to look at tha coffin.
-. Barriers are being built by means of
which the people will be ushered through
in four lines at the rate of 18,000 an
hour. The body of the late King will
not be exposed to view. The mourners
will see only the coffin with the official
regalia and heaps of flowers. Prices of
seats to view the procession are now
fabulous. ,
SCOTCH LASSES FOR THE WEST.
Winnipeg, May 16,���Sixty Scotch
lassies passed here to-day en route
to Vancouver, where they have been
secured situations as domestics by the
Salvation Army. It is said that cupid
awaite them in the coast city, and the
supply will have to be replenished very
soon.
ANOTHER LIBERAL UNSEATED.
London, May 16,���Capt; Hon F,
Great, the Liberal member of parliament for Poole division of Dorset has
been unseated. Bribery and corrup
tion was proven on an extensive;and
surprising scale. !
Sailings for the Week.
From the South:
City of Seattle on Friday, Camosun
from Vancouver on Friday, Humboldt
from Seattle on Sunday.
For the South.
Humboldt leaves for Seattle on Tuesday, Camosun for Vancouver on Sunday.
f Bradstreet's representative Mr. Dob-
son, of Vancouver, is in the city, rearranging the rating of the business
people. Many changes will be made
which wilt greatly improve the credit
of the citizens.
William Manson committee rooms
were again crowded on Saturday night
with some of the best peopje in Rupert.
Stirring addressee were delivered by
many prominent citizens who are supporting Mr. Manson, snd the people's
candidate for mayor also addressed
the boys, who gave him a rousing reception. The Metlakatla band and
Kaufmann's orchestra furnished music.
BY WIRELESS
Smoke up, boys!   There will be only
a few more days of free cigars.
The Stork always brings more trouble
and expense.    Ask a married man.
Which of the mayoralty candidates
would you name as a trustee of your
estate?
According to his would-be critics,
Morrow's chief fault appears to be his
success.
Even the Stork buttons were made
in Seattle. Vote for Manson and
patronize home industry. ��
Speaking of wages���everybody seems
to have it mixed up in their political
talk.  Who is it pays the big wages now T
No evidence of Stork having paid
more than three dollars a day for
common labour has been obtainable
up to date.
Pat Daly says that the three dollar
a day minimum wage which the' plat-
tenkJP"8 �� not 'Rough. .-.. Well, _a
hard working man like Pat ought to
know.
Maybe it is none of our business
but we have a curiosity to know which
of the Stork ticket candidates is going
to get the knife in order to take In
Pattullo.
The "as soon as possible" candidates
will probably realize that the electors
have taken their platform at its real
value and supported it "in so far as
it is consistent "with good government.
A candidate at the rally in the Theatre
Saturday evening accused the Manson
division with being led by a man with'
brains. So far as we have learned,
no counter charge has been laid against
the Stork ticket.
The "personal devil" who hangs
round this office and draws a weekly
pay envelope says that Stork may be
alright at nursing babies, but if he had
to deliver the Optimist route No. 2
every night, he would find out that
this city is no kid.
Pattullo, Stork, Dunn and the rest
of the critics had an opportunity of
running against Manson if they did
not approve of sending him to Victoria,
and they will have an opportunity
again. In the meantime, let us have
argument on which is the better man
to organize the civic administration of
Prince Rupert.
HON. BRODEUR SETTER.
.Ottawa, May 16,���Hon. L. P. Bro-
deur to Ottawa, after a four month's
absence and has resumed charge of
jus department. He ia greatly Improved
in helth and is steadily gaining in
strength. .
Winnipeg, May 16,���Fire in the
warehouse of the Canada Oil Co. Ltd.,
did $25,000 damage. Two men were
seriously burned.

Vancouver, May 16,���A horrible and
dastardly plot to kill scores of human
beings was unearthed here. A special
tiain carrying 120 Chinese in bond bound
east, was just about to start on its
journey yesterday when dynamite, with
fuse and caps, was discovered in one of
the stoves of the colonist cars.
A search was immediately made and
the stoves in each of the other cars were
found similarly tieated. The dynamite
and fuse was covered with paper and
wood as if arranged for kindling. If
the fires had been stated, a terrible
wreck and loss of life must have resulted.
No trace of the perpetrators of the
foul plot has been discovered.
couver with water, Minnie Pement
of this city, aged 16 years, fell in.
Her brother Albeit plunged into the
water to rescue her, both were drowned.
BY WIRELESS
PREMIER LEAVES ON JULY 7th.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Will Visit Prince
Rupert About First Week
in August.
Ottawa, May 16,���Sir Wilfred Laurier, premier of the Dominion, accompanied by Hon. George P. Graham, minister
of Railways and Canals.E.M.Macdonald
M. P., and Fred Pardee, M. P., will
leave Ottawa on July 7th, for a sixty
days political tour of western Canada.
They will reach the Pacific Coast about
the first week in August and address
meetings in Victoria, Vancouver and
Prince Rupert.
SEVEN REASONS
WHY    MANSON    SHOULD    BE
ELECTED.
BECAUSE he has a better knowledge of
Prince Rupert's civic affairs
than anyone else.
BECAUSE his honesty and integity is
above reproach.
BECAUSE he thoroughly understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing municipal work.
BECAUSE financiers to whom Prince Rupert must go for heavy loans
demand a big, clean man who
has had experience in handling public funds.
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organizing the
. civic administration.
BECAUSE he has the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
BECAUSE his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no
room for juggling.
ENGLISH IMMIGRATION.
London,  May  16,���The  question  of
I English    immigration    to    Canada   is
| receiving particular attention just now
owing   to   Canada's   stipulation   that
! assisted emigrants must be willing to
i work on land that is a farm. Sir Clement
Kinloss Cooke, M. P., chairman of the
emigration board is working assiduously
1 to have  this restriction  removed,  be-!
lieving that it is depriving the Dominion j
; of many artisans who, though assisted
: in their passage to Canada, will eventually   prove   desirable   inhabitants   of
I that   land.
"My great desire is to see labour
exchanges throughout the British Empire. This will tend to do away with
starvation and settle unemployment
question. Through these exchanges
men would learn where there was a
demand for their services and desirable
workmen could be assisted."
Smoke up, boys!   There will be only
a few more days of free cigars.
The Stork always brings more trouble
and expense.     Ask a married man.
Which of the mayoralty candidates
would you name as a trustee of your
estate?
According to his would-be critics,
Morrow's chief fault appears to be his
success.
Even the Stork buttons were made
in Seattle. Vote for Manson and
patronize home industry.
Speaking of wages���everybody seems
to have it mixed up in their political
talk.  Who is it pays the big wages now ?
TELEGRAPHIC BRIEFS.
Kansas City, ���The jury found Dr.
Hyde guilty of murder in the first
degree and he was sentenced to the
penitentiary for life.
Seattle, May 16,���Charles I, an educated monkey valued $10,000 because
of earning powers was smothered in a
baggage car between here and Portland.
Los Angelos, May 16,���An earthquake
is reported in several southern Cali-
fornian cities. It is the most severe in
years. Riverside, Santa Ana report
damage. At Santa Maragita a man
terrified leaped through the window of
a cafe taking sash with him.
London, May 16,���Official courtesies
having been exchanged, Roosevelt proceeded to Buckingham palace where
he viewed the body of the King Edward
VII. He then went to Marlborough house
where Ambassador Reid presented him
to King George. Rich Americans are
responsible for the high price of seats
along the line march. A rich American
purchased a store room from small
merchant for $5,000. Others have paid
similar prices.
Humorous Incident.
An amusing incident took place on
Saturday evening at the close of the
Manson rally. After the National
Anthem had been sung,, a man who had
just entered the hall stood up on one
of the back benches and asked permission to ask a question. Some one
said "go ahead" and he then asked
in dramatic tones, "Why is it that every
blindpig in Prince Rupert is supporting
Fred Stork?" As no one volunteered a reply the gentleman in question made his
way to the platform and said he would
answer the question himself. He said
it was because they did not want Manson
for mayor, as they were afraid he would
soon put an end to their business.
There are seventy-five blind pigs
in Prince Rupert and I have visited
them all during the past few days, and
in each of themthe owner is wearing the
Stork button." He closed with the
prophesy that, if Stork is elected, that
that baby���the one that the Stork is
carrying suspended from its mouth,
or in other words Prince Rupert���would
take a fall and when it did it would
fall into a hundred and fifty blind pigs,
or twice as many as existed at the present time. After these potent remarks,
the wanderer strolled out again into
the cool night air.
PREPARATIONS FOR FUNERAL.
London, May 16,���Whole court and
all London is absorbed in the preparations for the burial of King Edward VII,
which will be the most imposing ceremonial Great Britain's capital has ever
witnessed. The city will have the appearance of an invested town for two
days. It is said that 700,000 people
will pass through Westminster hall
to look at the coffin.
Barriers are being built by means of
which the people will be ushered through
in four lines at the rate of 18,000 an
hour. The body of the late King will
not be exposed to view. The mourners
will see only the coffin with the official
regalia and heaps of flowers. Prices of
seats to view the procession are now
fabulous.
No evidence of Stork having paid
more than three dollars a day for
common labour has been obtainable
up to date.
Pat Daly says that the three dollar
a day minimum wage which the platform offers is not enough. Well, a
hard working man like Pat ought to
know.
Maybe it is none of our business
but we have a curiosity to know which
of the Stork ticket candidates is going
to get the knife in order to take in
Pattullo.
SCOTCH   LASSES FOR THE WEST.
Winnipeg, May 16,���Sixty Scotch
lassies passed here to-day en route
to Vancouver, where they have been
secured situations as domestics by the
Salvation Army. It is said that cupid
awaits them in the coast city, and the
supply will have to be replenished veiy
soon.
The "as soon as possible" candidates
| will probably realize that the electors
I have taken their platform at its real
value and supported it "in so far as
it is consistent " with good government.
A candidate at the rally in the Theatre
Saturday evening accused the Manson
division with being led by a man with
brains. So far as we have learned,
no counter charge has been laid against
the Stork ticket.
ANOTHER LIBERAL UNSEATED.
London, May 16,��� Capt. Hon F.
Grest, the Liberal member of parliament for Poole division of Dorset has
been unseated. Bribery and corruption was proven on an extensive and
surprising  scale.
Sailings   for  the Week.
i From the South:
City of Seattle on Friday, Camosun
from Vancouver on Friday, Humboldt
I from Seattle on Sunday.
For the South.
Humboldt leaves for Seattle on Tuesday, Camosun for Vancouver on Sunday.
The "personal devil" who hangs
round this office and draws a weekly
| pay envelope says that Stork may be
alright at nursing babies, but if he had
to deliver the Optimist route No. 2
every night, he would find out that
this city is no kid.
BROTHER AND SISTER DROWNED.
Vancouver, May 16,���On Sunday,
while picnicking on the banks of the
Capilano   river,   which   supplies   Van-
T Bradstreet's representative Mr. Dob-
son, of Vancouver, is in the city, rearranging the rating of the business
people. Many changes will be made
which will greatly improve the credit
of the citizens.
William Manson committee rooms
were again crowded on Saturday night
with some of the best people in Rupert.
Stirring addresses were delivered by
many prominent citizens who are supporting Mr. Manson, and the people's
candidate for mayor also addressed
the boys, who gave him a rousing reception. The Metlakatla band and
Kaufmann's orchestra furnished music.
Pattullo, Stork, Dunn and the rest
of the critics had an opportunity of
running against Manson if they did
not approve of sending him to Victoria,
and they will have an opportunity
again. In the meantime, let us have
argument on which is the better man
to organize the civic administration of
Prince Rupert.
HON. BRODEUR BETTER.
Ottawa, May 16,���Hon. L. P. Bro-
deur to Ottawa after a four month's
absence and has resumed charge of
his department. He is greatly improved
in helth and is steadily gaining in
strength.
Winnipeg, May 16,���Fire in the
warehouse of the Canada Oil Co. Ltd.,
did $25,000 damage. Two men were
seriously burned. THE   PRINCE    RUPERT   OPTIMIST
���
The Prince Rupert Optimist
Daily Edition.
Monday, May 16
A MALICIOUS INSINUATION
To-day the official list of voters was turned over by the returning officer to
the candidates.     It contains 1219 names, with their respective occupations and
addi esses.
Careful enquiry into the insinuation of the Stork newspaper reveals the fact
that the so-called list published was teeming with errors of omission and commission.
It seems a representative of the paper was permitted to have possession of the
returning officer's register book all day last Monday, and although there were a
great many names filed that day, the returning officer delayed putting them in
the book in order to let the newspaper representative continue his work. The book,
as a public document was open for inspection, but not necessarily to an extent
that the officer could not work upon it. As a matter of fact, he labored far into the
night in order to enter up all the names filed that day. As a recompense for this
accommodation the returning officer is charged with attempting to obstruct the
inspection of the books, and an insinuation that he placed on names illegally, or
permitted them to be placed on.
Only an inexperienced or malicious newspaper man would ever think of putting
a hastily copied and unproved list up against an official document.
The Optimist believes, that in fairness to a competent, energetic and unbiased
official, these facts should be published. Mr. Cuthbert has made a splendid job
of both the assessment and the voter's list, and men who know what his work is
appreciate it.
ILLEGAL DECLARATIONS
Those who are taking an active interest in the election have discovered a great
many registered who are aliens, or who have not been residents of the city for six
months. These persons who thus illegally attempt to get the franchise belong to
an element that does not add to the business value, the respectability or the morale
of the city. This stealing of the right to vote should not be tolerated, and the
time lo stop it is now. Taking a false declaration by signing an application before
an officer qualified to take them is committing perjury, one of the most serious
crimes in Canada, and the severe punishment given for it would not be unjust to
those who would thus aim to defeat the honest opinion of the real electors of Prince
Rupert.
The Optimist learns that a list of those who are not British subjects, or who have
not had the necessary length of residence here has been prepared and they will
not only be challenged at the polls, but prosecuted in the courts.   Every honest
citizen, irrespective of party should assist in this work.    Prince Rupert should be I ��j .jgy ^95
cleaned out of those kind of citizens.    There may have been a few who took the -ratt wav   ttf��
declaration under influence and the Optimist would not like to see such prosecuted, IjWAi      lh.b.
but they should, in the meantime, request the returning officer to remove the r
names.

PROSPECTORS
Come up the Skeena. We have a
country here in which many good finds
j have been made by the few prospectors
who have been in the hills, and yet
in which there are hundreds of square
miles of territory badly in need of good
prospectors.
Coming up the river by steamer,
ninety-one miles from Prince Rupert is
the town of Kitsumkalum, from which
there is a wagon road to within a
few miles of Kitsumkalum lake. In
vicinity of Kitsumkalum lake a number
of placer claims were discovered last
season, and prospecting has proved
them very promising. Extensive development work will be done on them this
season. In the hills in this vicinity a
number of lode claims have been located
and worked by the prospectors. One
vein is 18 to 20 feet wide, contacting between a slate and quartzite, giving
assays from $24 to $55 in gold and
silver to the ton; another vein 6 to 7
feet wide gave assays of $7.80 gold, and
$11.70 copper per ton, this vein lays in
line with porphyritic intusives; a ledge
of pure graphite 8 feet wide was also
located near the Lake last year. But
few prospectors have been in that
region, and it should receive considerable
attention this year by the incoming
prospector.
Next stop, ninety-eight miles from
Prince Rupert, isCipper City, at head
of the CopTViTriTOT. Three miles back
of Copper City Jack Nesbit is now
opening up a free-milling gold property,
on which there are three good leads.
Near him Prospector Cody is also working a free milling vein. From Copper
City all the why up Dopper river to its
head, about a distance of 30 miles,
claims showing good values have been
located, and good float has been made
in many places by the prospectors who
could not follow it up without neglecting the claims already held. $20,000
was expended last year on a trail leading from Copper City to the Bulkley
valley, and it is reported a like sum will
be expended on it this spring, thus
it in first class shape for the incoming
prospector early in the season.
Kitselas is the next stop,104 miles
from Prince Rupert. Gold creek flows
into the Skeena river at Kitselas, and
all the way from the mouth of this
creek to its head waters a distance of 18
miles to the east, is a good promising
field. A number of claims have already
been located along this creek, one
property free-milling being only thirty
minutes walk from town. The Single
hurst mine is two hours walk from town,
and the Bums-Ohlson, and Fred Forrest
properties are twelve miles.
A number of good finds were made
last fall near the head of Gold Creek,
the leads are reported to be from 60 to
lOOfeet wide, giving good assays in gold
silver and copper, but the fall snows
came a few weeks earlier than usual,
and the prospectors were unable to do
any extensive work. Considerable
work will be under way on these claims
early this season. A trail was built up
Gold creek a few years ago for a distance
of about 12 miles, but after building it
with little or no regard to grades, it
it was left to fill up by rock slides and
grow up with small timber again without any] further attention from the
Province. It is reported there is a
$10,000 appropriation for the improvement of this trail this season. That
amount will do some good, but until the
Provincial government opens its eyes
to the fact that tho Gold Creek is a very
promising mineral country that will be
more or less neglected or passed up by
the incoming prospector if good trails
are not given, and makes sufficient
appropriation to run a good pack trail
Kitselas over to the coal fields now being
opened near McDonnel lake, a distance
of 28 miles away, we fear it will be a
difficult task to induce any number of
prospectors to seriously consider a
season in the Gold creek country.
From Kitselas to Hazelton, a distance
of 85 miles by steamer, claims have been
located and worked all along the river,
but few, if any, prospectors have so far
gone more than two or three miles away
All the hills east of
I Hazelton, on both sides of the Bulkley
I river, and up the Telkwa and Morris
J rivers, according to the reports from the
j few prospectors who have so far worked
! in them, are fairly teeming with rich
float, and the area is such that hundreds
of prospectors can go there and with good
chances of making early and good finds.
Gold,silver,lead,copper,  plenty of it!
| The only thing needed is many good
practical and reliable prospectors: the
man who knows how to   follow  it  up,
and   with  a   record  that  will  inspire
the     confidence   of  capital   after  the
find has been made.
Big Contract
The  Brin  Furniture   company  have
been   successful   in   tendering   for  the
furnishings in the new 70 room  hotel
at Stewart.   They had to go up against
the   competition   of   the   largest   furniture   dealers  in   Victoria    and Vancouver.   The contract  will   amount to
between $5000 and $6000  and it calls
for the very best in  everything.    The
furniture will be solid oak and mahogany
j with brass] beds.    They will furnish all
i the bed rooms, offices, parlours, sitting
rooms,  dining room   and  kitchen.     A
! great deal of the furniture will be sent
' from the Prince Rupert stock and the
| balance will go  direct from the manu-
; facturers and wholesale houses.      The
I Brin   Furniture    Co.,     deserve   credit
, for thus capturing so large a contract
from   much   larger   and   longer  established houses.
famous Gerard-Heinzman pianos. On
Saturday no attempt was made to do
business in the new store. It was open
only for inspection and what made it
doubly interesting and inviting was the
music that was furnished all day and
evening. Every day from now on will
see added new lines, and new goods
received. There is no other store in
Northern British Columbia to compare
with it.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the

To Buy  Right-of-Way.
George H. Pope, right-of-way purchasing agent for the G. T. P., whose
head office is in Winnipeg, spent the
week end in Prince Rupert and while
here he called on the Optimist and joined the ever increasing ranks of this
paper's readers. . Mr. Pope is here in
connection with the purchasing of a few-
properties not taken over by the Company previously, and also laying out
the work for his assistant Mr. Dempsey,
who will be here shortly to purchase
the right of way for the 136 miles between Copper Rivei and Aldermere.
Mr. Pope has been with the Grand
Trunk and the Grand Trunk Pacific
for the past twenty-six years, and during
that time has purchased a strip across
the country from St. Johns to Prince
Rupert He has been here six time;-}
the last visit being in September last.
He was greatly surprised to see the wonderful progress that had been made
here in the way of building and development He could hardly believe it possible.
In speaking .of the G. T. P., he was
very optimistic and felt sure that trains
would be running in and out of here in
a very few months. Had it not been for
the trouble at Zenardi Rapids bridge,
the trains would now be running on
the first 100 miles east from here. When
asked about the remaining contracts
to be let, which will connect Prince
Rupert with the east, Mr. Pope said
nothing had been done yet, but would be
as soon as the surveyors had practically completed their work.

dismissed.
