PRINCESS MAY A TOTAL WRECK I
Vancouver. Aug. 5���-A wireless from Juneau states that
the steamer Princess May is sinking off Sentinel Island, in
Lynn Canal and near Skagway. A later report says she is
wrecked but no lives lost. She left Vancouver Saturday night.
The May arrived here Monday and [
left that night on her regular trip to the
north. No details of the disaster had
been received here at the time of going
to press. The Optimist enquired of the
wireless operator at the time this dispatch
was received. He replied that he had
no particulars and merely knew that the
May was in trouble. The wireless endeavored to get further particulars for the
Optimist.
SPECIAL BY WIRELESS.
Juneau, Alaska, Aug. 5, 2:30 p. m.���
The Princess May took two hours to sink
after she struck Sentinel Island, which
gave ample time for all passengers, officers and crew to get safely off. A vessel which has returned from the scene of
the wreck reports that the May is ashore
on the island and will be a total loss.
The details are still meagre as to how the
accident happened, it being clear and
calm weather at the time.

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver,  August  5.���At the  banquet to the police chiefs, who are meeting
in convention here, Joe Martin was one
of the invited guests.        In his speech
he devoted a great part to a tilt with
Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier   and   the  policies
the premier has been expounding during
the western trip.   Referring to one of the
latter's recent speeches he said he understood Sir Wilfrid to say that Canada
must  eventually  decide  upon   national
independence.  That was what he under-
i stood the premier to mean and he did
1 not agree with him.    An effort for independence meant that Canada would
lend    by   Canada   being   absorbed   by
i the United States.
IR. McNEIL SAYS WILLIAMS IS CRAZY AND SHOULD BE IN AN ASYLUM
5TIFF FIGHT
WITH BEAR
^NIMAL FOUGHT SAVAGELY TO
PROTECT   HER   CUBS
Prospector in Goose Bay Inlet Had a
Close Call���He Ut a Few Yells
Out of Him and Scared the Bear
Away.
Bruin preferred as it is a rather rare
thing for bears to take the aggressive
in this district, although the cinnamon
and silver tips are said to abound in
certain districts. Now that the salmon
are running the bears are very thick
along the creeks.
PRICE  OF  TOWN  LOTS
Editor of Collier's Makes a Reference
To Prince Rupert
Word has just come to town of a
avage attack of a bear upon a prospector in the Goose Bay district. While
nuking a prospecting trip up the Bonan-
creek A. Fennie a well known pro-
ipector from the Boundary country
ound himself in a rather embarrasing
iredicament which might have proved
disastrous to himself. Traversing a
fittlb stretch of bush land, tearing his
nay through the thick and tangled
brush, gingerly avoiding the devil club,
the torment of the prospector, Mr.
Fvnnie'B attention was attracted by a
crashing of the bushes ahead. Looking
up quickly the handicapped prospector
found himself the objective point of an
angry onslaught M a mammoth brown
th'-bear. The ferocity of the enraged
brute struck terror into the heart of the
unarmed man as she came crashing
toward him, a double row of gleaming
ivory dripped with the frothings of the
charging bear about to avenge the intrusion of a stranger in her own private
stamping grounds. What takes minutes
to tell occupied but seconds in the action.
Quickly revovering his presence of mind
-Mr. Fennie shouted with the lustiness
of a full throated prospector and made
a vicious swipe at his enemy. She
hesitated when within a few short feet
u' the man, frightened apparently by
the noise, then turned slowly, to disappear with a crash in the heavy underbrush, much to the relief of her intended
Ivictim. In speaking of the affair Mr.
Fennie said that the brute towered over
[him as she rose upright, the better to
attack her victim. Apparently he had
I gotten closer to her cub than   Madam
Afte!1 leaving here H. F. Gadsby,
editor of the Canadian Collier's, went
to Vancouver and talked twaddle to the
Women's Canadian Club. In a four
column speech this is his only reference
to Prince Rupert.
"British Columbia is full of highly
successful mountains up and down and
clear across, with smiling sun-kissed
valleys in between. There are all kinds
of mountains, tall stately mountains,
with snow on their heads like grandee
dames at a bal poudre, little mountains
with baldish heads as if they had lost
their hair through typhoid fever; lazy
sprawling giants of mountains turned
over on their backs, having their feet
washed in the warm water; mountains���
But what's the use of cataloguing? Any
one of 'em little or big is high enough
to overtop the price of town lots in
Calgary or Vancouver or Prince Rupert,
and in Prince Rupert the town lots are
so high that your next neighbor uphill can overlook your faults. That
will give you an idea how high the
smallest of British Columbia mountains
COMMISSIONERS
SAY "CRAZY"
EVIDENCE   OF   DR. McNEIL WAS
THE MOST IMPORTANT
Judge Young Adjourned the Trial
As Soon As the Doctor Gave His
Evidence ��� Commission is Examining   the   Prisoner. ,
READY THIS MONTH
Cruiser   Niobe,   For  the   New   Navy
Of   The . Dominion
London, Aug. 2���Admiral Kings-
mill, Commander Macdonald and other
officers inspected the cruiser Niobe at
Davenport on Saturday. It is hoped
she will be ready to sail at the end of
August. The admiralty has invited 91
men of different ranks to volunteer
for service on the Niobe znd Rainbow.
The Williams case will not be called
again until Monday morning. Dr.
Tremayne and Dr. Eggert are examining
the prisoner and they desire a few days
to watch his conduct before giving
evidence as to his sanity.
Thursday    Session
Williams' trial came to a very abrupt
end yesterday afternoon about a quarter
past five o'clock. The defence began its
case about three o'clock and put several
witnesses on the stand who told about the
peculiarities of Williams, who was supposed to suffer from delusions etc. Then
Dr. McNeil was called and after recounting the details of an accident the
prisoner met with two years ago stated
that the after effects of that accident
might very easily produce a form of
insanity. Williams, when under the spell
was insane. Asked by Judge Young if he
would recommend that Williams be
placed in the asylum now, Dr. McNeil,
after a little thought said "yes". He
was prepared to fill out the" necessary
papers recommending Williams to an
asylum and further, he thought that the
I superintendent of an asylum would
I accept him.
"We shall postpone the trial" said
Judge Young. "If this man is crazy the
trial cannot proceed. We shall have a
commission examine this man and report to the court in the morning."
This was agreeable to both the prosecution and the defence and Mr. Fisher
said he would get a doctor to examine
Williams.
The judge added "I want to tell you
that it will take pretty strong medical
evidence to convince me that this man
is crazy." His honor pointed out that
there was a mental insanity and a moral
insanity. A man may be mentally insane and yet know the difference between right and wrong. A man morally
insane knows what is right and what is
wrong but he cannot resist ' to do the
wrong act The prisoner had showed a
clever cunning all the way through. He
realized that in his preparations for
starting the fire he was doing wrong.
He bought the gasoline and had it sent
up after dusk and placed it in the basement saying that he did not want his
housekeeper to know that he had it as
he had had a row with her. He was
secretive all the way through. In concluding His Honor stated that it was
either jail or the asylum for the prisoner
and so far as he was concerned the only
evidence of Williams' insanity that had
been produced was that of the doctor,
and he would have to have his evidence
confirmed by another doctor.
The case then adjourned* until this
morning.
The defence witnesses told about
tricks the boys played on Williams when
he first opened the Talbot Rooms, and
the effect those tricks had upon him.
He was very excitable and the boys
frequently had considerable sport at
his expense. He was generally known as
Dippy Williams and in speaking of him
those who knew him called him batty
and bug house. These were all the results of impressions that the various
witnesses had received. None of them
had ever seen the prisoner do anything
really wrong or attempt to do it, even
the insane experts who had had several
years experience in asylums, said they
did not think Williams was very bud,
but just thought he was crazy from funny
little things he would do.
RUMORED NEW
STEAMER LINE
SHAREHOLDERS OF TREADWELL
MINE BEHIND IT.
Would In All Probability Compete
With Existing Alaskan Boats
Calling At This Port.���Three
New Steamships At Least.
BADEN POWELL COMING
Rumors of the organization of a big
new steamship company to join in the
fight for southwestern Alaska trade are
now receiving general credence in Seattle.
The rumors had their origin in the councils of the party of wealthy shareholder
in the great Treadwell mines, who have
recently visited the mines, and the fact
that they do not deny the story is
taken as a confirmation of its truth.
According to general belief the plan is
to organize a new fleet of at least three
vessels. Mr S. A. Easton, general superintendent of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan
Mining Company, appears to be the moving spirit in the organization. Although
declining to give any positive information
Mr Easton has admitted that the consideration of such a matter has caused his
company to make an exhaustive investigation of the possibilities of such a
project.
ARMY   AND   NAVY
Veterans Will  Form  an  Association

(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, August 6.���General Baden-
Powell   landed   from   the   Empress   of
Ireland this morning. He is going straight
to Vancouver.
It is proposed to form a branch of the
above association in this town. As there
are quite a lot of old soldiers in town, it
is felt that a local army and navy club
should be formed here for the purpose
of letting all veterans keep in touch with
each other. There is also some talk of
forming a branch of the Imperial Service
Association in town. All persons wanting information or desiring to join will
please forward their names in to Wm.
Godson, Lieutenant, West York Regt.

The Cottage City arrived last night
with a good list of passengers, mail and
freight for the Grand Trunk. Knowing
there was freight to be unloaded many
of the through passengers came ashore
this morning and a short time after were
scared almost out of their wits by hearing
the whistle blow and seeing the Cottage
apparently going out. The steamer
steamed on past Foley, Welch's dock
and the belated passengers looked very
glum. Soon, however, she was seen
making preparations to tie up, and this
allayed the dire apprehensions.
The Cottage City unloaded 35,000
feet of Seattle lumber for the Grand
Trunk Pacific, consisting of ties, and
cappings and stringers for bridge work,
being the balance of the large shipment
brought by the Louisiana.
Among those from here who went
north on the Cottage CifcyNvere Miss
Lena Johnson, G. L. Major, T. W.

of the disappearance of his wife. But
this drug was used by him in medicine

Toronto, August 2���Whiskey pack-
ling in salt is the latest way of shipping
jthe fire water beverage.
Provincial Constable A. T. Rowell
lol Matheson, wandered into the express
���office at the depot a day or two ago,
land saw a case profusely stenciled
"breakfast bacon (long clear)" and
Iwith the name of the packer etc.
He kicked it, and it seemed heavy.
|He endeavored to lift it, and it seem-
|ed heavier still.
He removed the top and there he
|found three dozen bottles of whiskey
1 packed between thick layers of salt.
IThe whole was confiscated. Whiskey
| when it is smuggled into these new
j districts is worth $5 a bottle and finds
I a ready sale.
A few days ago, a constable un-
I earthed a den which concealed 15 kegs
I of beer, all of which was destroyed.
jit is estimated that this year the pro-
jvincial officers have seized $5,000 worth
���of whiskey principally in the north
(country.
Under False Pretences is the Charge
Against A. S. Levine
Magistrate McMullen had his hands
full this morning with the A. S. Levine
case. That gentleman is charged with
obtaining goods under false pretences
and J. Leckie Co ., Ltd., of Vancouver
are the complainants. The prosecution
claims that Levine represented to the
company that they had leased a lot in
Stewart and had invented $500 in a
building   and   fixtures   and   $2500   in
Everything was arranged last night
for the reception of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and party, and even part of the money
subscribed to meet the cost, which is
estimated at $2250. The several subcommittees met at the city hall and ,with
some pleasant discussion all their reports were adopted. The items on the
programme comprise mucic $150, programme $200, illiminated address on
moose-skin and souvenir for Lady
Laurier   $200,   and   decorations   $1700.
The latter, the most important feature, consists of a large arch to be er-
houses. The intention was to do business
under the name of "The Stewart Mer-' ected of logs at the junction of Second
avenue and Sixth steeet, a double row
of trees with bunting and electric lights
for Centre street. The arch is to be illuminated, the Majestic theatre and the

A fisherman belonging to the Mill Bay
Cannery, while shifting the mooring
of his net from the stern to the bow of
his boat one day recently was swept
overboard by the ferocity of the gale
blowing off the mouth of the Nass.
After a half hour of most strenuous work
the unfortunate man's partner with the
assistance of one or two of the boats
nearby rescued the drowning man in
the nick of time as he was about exhausted. An all night search for the net
proved of no avail and the boat was forced
to return empty handed in the morning
to the cannery.thankful however that
they were not short handed.

COLLECT MONEY  TO FIGHT
Indians  Will  Carry  Their  Troubles
To Privy Council if Necessary.
That the Nass Indians are determined
to carry their troubles before the supreme court of the land and even to the
privy council is demonstrated by their
determined and repeated calls for money.
Last week the Kinkohit band paraded
in force collecting five dollars per man
from every Indian and person who could
or would contribute. The various
canneries on tke Nass were called at and
a very considerable sum sum of money
obtained. This money goes to their
legal advisors in Toronto, who are
handling the case for them. Already
about two thousand dollars have been
spent in this way and the Indians are
determined that no expense shall be
spared in fighting this vexed question
to the bitter end.

SAD FAILURE
NEWSPAPER   MEN   TURN   THEIR
BACKS ON MT. MCKINLEY.
Go Far Enough to Diicover Tom
Lloyd's Flag it Not Flying at Summit and That Dr. Cook's is Ten
Miles From Summit.
Seward, Alaska, Aug 2.���The Portland Oregonian-New York Herald Mt.
McKinley expedition, headed by M. C.
E. Rusk, of Chelan, Wash., which sailed
from Seattle on the revenue cutter Ta-
Tacoma, April 24, and which followed
Dr. Cook's route up the Susitna and
Chulutnia rivers,, failed to reach the
summit of Mr. McKinley, and is no won
the way back to Seward.
The members reached the peak Dr.
Cook alleged to be the summit, but it is
ten miles from the topmost point of the
mountain, they said. The Rusk party
was unable to see _the flag which the
Thomas Lloyd party is alleged to have
planted on the summit last April, and
the members are disinclined to believe
the story told by the Fairbanks expedition.
The party, headed by Prof. Herschel
Parker, of New York, and Mr. Belmore
Brown, of Tacoma, is still endeavoring
to ascend the mountain. This news was
brought to Seward today by Mr. W. Mc-
Gongal, president of the Cache Creek
Mining company, who met the Rusk
party a few days ago at Susitna station.

everyone she brought a big bunch of

that should have come up on the Prince

mail. The Cottage City went out of her

She also brought large shipments of
