Fourteen days at sea in a broken down

Ibout 4 o'clock.
I Not only history, but romance is being
hade daily in northern British Columbia.
fhe trip made by these two young men
las so full of hardship that it is difficult
lo conceive of anyone coming through
lately.   It was only their knowledge of
Ihe north Pacific Coast,   of engineering
Ind their extreme courage and ability
lo adopt themselves to all circumstances
}ore them  to safety.  The story  they
jell of their 14 day voyage is thrilling
lo a degree, and not only will the participants   of it remember it to their last
lays, hut so will their host of friends
fho have spent anxious day and sleep-
pss nights in anxiety.
Arrived   Home.
A. \Y. Agnew, a well known engineer
fid Guy Tooker, his assistant, arrived
i Prince Rupert Harbor on the morning
May 24th about 10 o'clock.     They
feme down from Port Simpson in Mr.
Hamilton's yacht which rescued them
torn the craft and were greeted here by
neii friends. They were taken in charge
ly R. L. Mcintosh who took them to
lis home on Third avenue and he and
Mrs, Mcintosh   cared   for   them   until
Ibout  9    o'clock    in    the    evening,

They also ate very heartily, but

Mr.   Agnew   Talks.
A good night's sleep in their own beds
their handsome quarters on Fourth
venuo did much for the  long    lost
Mineers.     This  morning,   when  the
(ptimist  called  he was  greeted  with
Jsmile from both men who were lounging
their smoking apartment.   Both said
P.ey were feeling a little weak but otherwise were pretty fit.    They would not,
lowever, make the trip again under any
Jrcumstances.
Left Stewart.
I We left Stewart on the morning of
W 10th," said Mr. Agnew, "intending
J come direct to Prince Rupert. We
lok only enough providions for the trip.
lyerything went all right until we reach-
Jap Point, just below Port Simpson,
P" there our engine stopped. The
poiine had water in it and we were
helpless. The engine refused to start
again. That was on Wednesday night,
midnight. A heavy gale sprang up and
we started to drift. We were at the mercy
of the tide and the waves. We drifted
on and on, not knowing where we were
going. On Thursday afternoon we struck
the rocks of Cape Fox in Alaska, a
distance of 40 or 50 miles north west by
west from Jap point. Here our staunch
little yacht was dashed to pieces along
with our canoe. That looked like the
end for us. We were out of the line
of steamers, without food ancl without
a tool with which to make a raft. We
managed to save about six pounds of
flour and four pounds of oat meal, and
a couple of pieces of candle. These
latter we used to grease the frying
pan with and we made pancakes by
mixing the flour and meal with salt
water. We also had a couple of meals
of clams but they were scarce and we
could not catch a fish of any kind. We
had to come down to eating mussels-
and that's pretty tough. We found
three potatoes on shore and once half a
radish floated up to us. They were
devoured eagerly and without question.
Built a  Raft.
Realizing that life on the Cape
would be short the heroes took the bull
by the horns and decided to fight fate
to the last ditch.
"We started gathering driftwood,"
continued Mr. Agnew, "to make a raft.
We had no tools whatever except one
small cook knife. We gathered in the
logs and we had to burn them in two or
three pieces to get them the right
length. Then we used stones to drive
the old spikes out and later to drive
them in to fasten the logs together.
In due time we fashioned a raft that
would make you laugh. It was our only
chance. We made paddles out of drift
wood and a sail out of the cover of the
bed tick.
"On Sunday, May 15th, we got on
our 'life preserver' and took little Pat,
the dog with us. Poor little fellow, he
had a hard time, but he pulled through.
We started for Port Simpson, or for the
first boat we could sight We had no
idea how far we were away. The first
day we made but little headway, but
kept on day after day and night after
night, only stopping to gather clams or
mussels and for a rest. It was a hopeless task, but we were not hopeless and
always expected to reach home.
Refused to Help Them.
"For nine long days and nine long
nights we paddled and apparently made
no headway, but finally on Tuesday we
sighted the Petriana about three o'clock
in the morning bound for Port Simpson.
We hailed her and the lookout answered
our signals. He asked us what we
wanted and we replied that we were in
distress on a raft -and wanted to be
taken off. The lookout's reply we did
not catch, but he kept his ship headed
for Simpson and left us to the mercy of
the tide and the waves. To us that
was one of the hardest knocks of the
whole trip. We cannot imagine what
kind of an excuse the fellow will  offer.
"A half hour later, about a quarter
of a mile from Port Simpson, we
sighted Mr. Hamilton's launch coming
towards us. Our hearts leaped with
joy. We were saved! We got into
the launch and one of the first things
was bread ar.d butter. I tell you I
never tasted anything so good in my
life before. We wired from Port Simpson of our safe arrival and we reached
here about ten o'clock;yesterday morning."
Searching Parties.
The rescue caused many to feel relieved.    From the time it was first dis-
NEW COUNCIL AT WORK
FIRST   MEETING   HELD   IN   THE
COURT   HOUSE.
Big Batch Of Communications Read
By Acting Clerk Alderman Smith
Temporary Quarters Suggested For
Use As City Hall.
CONTINUED ON PAGE 5
Prince Rupert's city council is now
well under way. The mayor and aldermen met on Monday night for a couple
of hours or more and got through a lot
of work. The organization was commenced by the appointment of the standing committees and already several
matters have been referred to them.
Another meeting will be held by them
this evening at 8 o'clock.
Those present were Mayor Stork,
in the chair, Aid. Smith, Barrow, Mclntyre, Mobley, Hilditch, Pattullo.
The mayor called the meeting to
order and stated that he had a copy of
the constitution of the Vancouver municipality and suggested that as their
method of procedure.
The secretary read the munutes of
the noon meeting and they were adopted
Communications.
Secretary Aid. Smith read the following communications:���
From the Haliday Machinery Co., of
Seattle, asking for information and
specifications for the proposed new power
house.
From Wm. C. Currie, applying for
position of assessor.
From Alex. Potter, of new York,
asking to be allowed to prepare plans
for the proposed water works system.
From the Kerr Engine Co., of Walker-
ville, Ont., asking to be allowed to give
figures on hydrants, pipes, valves, etc.,
in connection with the water works
system.
From J. Richards, of Brandon, Man.,
enquiring as to the prospects of a moving
picture show here.
From O. J. Trouts of Albany, Ore.,
asking for information of the town and
what opening there would be for a planing mill.
From W. H. Derry, town, applying
for position of Constable.
From Grand View hotel, applying
for license to sell liquor.
From John T. Wood, town, applying
for position on police force.
From H. M. Leonard, asking that he
be given an opportunity to place the
city debentures on the market.
From W. H. Dockstader, Victoria,
applying for position of Chief of Police.
From F. W. Kelly complaining about
the dangerous condition of the roads.
City  Solicitor.
Alderman Pattullo stated that one
of the first things the council should do
���was to appoint a city solicitor as bylaws have to be prepared shortly,
and legal advice is required at all times.
Alderman Mobley agreed with this,
but said that from what he could learn
the solicitors were expecting to receive
an outrageous salary. He had heard
$4,000 and $6,000 mentioned.
Aid. Mclntyre presumed that a larger
salary would have to be paid here than
elsewhere on account of the conditions
being different. He did not see how the
council could be justified in paying such
a salary as mentioned.
Alderman Hilditch said that Vancouver
only paid $1,200.
Aid. Pattullo did not think the city
could get a solicitor the first year for
less than $3000, as he would be kept
busy the greater part of his time. After
the by-laws are framed up, and the heavy
work done, a smaller salary could be
paid. .
Aid.   Hilditch   thought   the   lawyers
should be asked to tender for the position
Aid. Smith suggested that a solicitor
be employed for three months, at a
salary of $250 per month and after that
time the council could decide what to
do.
This suggestion met with general
approval and was adopted. The lawyers
will be communicated with by the
Finance Committee. The city to furnish
a stenographer.
City   Clerk.
Aid. Hilditch introduced the matter
of a city clerk, and after some discussion
it  was  decided   that  the mayor secure
a man to fill the psotion temporarily.
Centre  St.   Road.
Aid. Lynch in referring to the repairs
on Centre street reminded the council
that that was G. T. P. property. The
company had also refused to spend any
more money on it, but intended to turn
it over to the city, if not exactly in the
same place as it is now, it would be quite
near. He thought the city should look
after this at once.
On the suggestion of Aid. Pattullo,
the mayor was instructed to take the
matter up with Mr. Chamberlain.
His Worship said he would do so as
a whole new deck was needed on the
road and a proper grade should be struck
before any great expense was put on
the road.
Temporary Quarters.
His Worship stated that in connection
with temporary quarters for the City
Hall he had seen Mr Christie about the
old Bank of Commerce building. He
had been referred to Mr. Ryley, but
he had not heard from him yet. He said
the streets and property committee
should get busy at once on plans for a
city hall and police station. He understood from Mr. Manson that there was
a site near the fire hall.
Aid. Mobley said the council should
decide on rate of taxation for this year
in order to get finances.
Alderman Pattullo suggested that
each committee prepare an estimate of
their requirements for the year.
Mayor Stork said the city would issue
debentures for telephone, electric light
plant and these could all be voted on
by the people at the one time.
There  was   a   discussion   caused   by
Alderman Lynch mentioning the  water
supply from Woodworth lake.     In this
j matter the services of one or two en-
1 gineers and a solicitor were required and
| the matter should be taken up at once.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the Streets
committee be instructed to prepre a
report re engaging a temporary engineer
and present ti at the next meeting. Aid.
Mobley seconded the motion and it
carried.
Alderman Barrow again brought up
the question of a temporary engineer
to have the streets repaired and other
work cleaned up so the permanent man
would not be unnecessarily delayed
in starting on the big work.
Alderman Mobley moved that the
Streets committee be authorized to
proceed at once with repairing the
plank roads���carried.
Alderman Hilditch asked for instructions as to the purchase of the necessary
J lumber and supplies for repairs. He was
told by the mayor to get whatever was
eeded, whereever he wished for the
present.
George V. to Arbitrate,
Representatives ol the American and
Chilean governments in London having
charge of the celebrated Alsop claim,
which was shortly to have been presented to King Edward for arbitration, have
been informed by the United States
government and that of Chili that King
George V will undertake the arbitration
of this claim and the matter will be presented to him about August 1 next.
SPORTS OF EMPIRE DAY
BRILLIANT    WEATHER    AND    A
VERY    LARGE    CROWD.
Contests Entirely Confined To Children, While Happy Parents Look
On���Thrilling Boxing Bout Between the Two Reddies.
Empire Day at Prince Rupert yesterday was as successful a celebration as
the one given last year, with the additional pleasure of having our own mayor
and members of our own city council,
as well as our member of the provincial
parliament "among the notables present." It was glorious weather and the
convenient hillside on First avenue
again formed a commodious natural
amphitheatre from which the sports
could be viewed. Scarcely a stump,
or a bump of the ground could be seen,
so thickly was it covered with people
sitting or standing.
William H. Vickers was the "whole
push" this year as well as last. The
day previous, upon his initiative, a
handsome sum was subscribed, more
than enough to purchase a liberal supply
of prizes and the balance forms a neuclus
for the July 1st celebration fund. Mr.
Vickers was the busiest man on the
job all afternoon. He was ably assisted
by W. E. Burritt, who attended to the
entries, Lionel Crippen, clerk of the
course and C. D. Newton as general
manager. The judges were Wm. Man-
son, M. P. P., Alderman Mobley and
Dr. N. M. McNeill.
The sports, which were for children
only, began about two o'clock and
lasted until nearly six, when they closed
with Mr. Vickers appearing in a cart
as a sort of young Santa Claus, delivering the prizes .von to the pushing, swarming, sweating, yelling winners. They
began with races for the little tots, followed by races for the bigger boys and
girls, aftef which followed other contests of skill and endurance in rapid
succession���the latter point being a
distinct and much applauded feature.
The winner of the high jump won great
applause, not only by the local height
record for his age and size, but for the
grace and ease with which he took his

BIG FIRE AT METLAKATLA
Camping Party Started Bonfire In
The Grass���Spread Rapidly And
The    Village    Was    Threatened.
Metlakatla had a close call yesterday
i from being destroyed by fire. It took
I thc united efforts of all the villagers for
j a couple of hours to stop the onward
march of the flames, which looked at
times to be very dangerous. The fire
was caused by a party of picnickers
from Prince Rupert who started a bon
fire in the dry grass and hay. Everything
in the neighbourhood was perfectly
dry and the bonfire got away from the
watchers and was soon licking up the hay
in large quantities. It sprung rapidly
towards the village and all hands turned
in and helped. The fire engine did good
service and tha natives worked like
Trojans.
Picnic and camping parties should
be particular about their camp fires.
There is no limit to tne damage that a
little carelessness will cause. Metlakatla
was nearly destroyed and had it not been
that all the villagers were enjoying the
holiday at home, and listening to the
band on the green.the result would have
been disastrous. As it was, the fire was
a big one and could be plainly seen from
Prince  Rupert. ;J

American Suffragettes to Bombard
the Members of Congress
New York, May 23.~Ten thousand
women paraded the principal streets Saturday evening, to demonstrate thir strong
protest against the refusal of the state
legislature for its refusal to pass the bill
for universal suffrage.
' Chicago.May 24,-The whole citywas in
the grip of the Suffregettes. There
was a monster parade led by Mrs. Dora
Montefiore, one of the most militant
of the British leader s. Some fiery speeches
were made and the New York legislature,
which a few days ago refused to pass a
bill for universal suffrage, was loudly
hooted and derided.
A resolute campaign is to be opened in
all of what are known as the suffragette
states and a big representative delegation to be sent to Washington, where the
senators and congressman are to be
given a taste of the treatment accorded
by the women to the members of the
British house of parliament.

Plunger Makes Profit of Million and
Half on Cotton.
New York, May 24.���Patten'sagents

Not only was this sold at a profit of
$1,500,000. but it gives Patten a close
corner on the spot market.

G.T.P. BOATS HERE JUNE 12
Inaugural Service of Princes Attended With Much Ceremony���Schedule From Seattle To Rupert.
SCHEDULE.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Coast
jervice will be inaugurated on Sunday,
June 12th, when the steamer Prince
Rupert will leave Seattle at midnight
and arrive here on Wednesday at 1 p.m.
She will be met here by the Prince Albert which will leave at 3 p.m. on her
first trip to the islands.
The establishment of the G. T.  P.
boat service has been anxiously awaited. It means much to this city and to
northern British Columbia.  The dreams
o( a couple of years ago are now being
realized, and Prince Rupert will tender
a royal welcome to the new boats.
The Prince Albert will leave Vancouver
lead of the Prince George and will be
here when the latter arrives. The Albert
make the trip around the island and
it back in time to meet the  Prince
which will arrive on Sunday
1 Op. m..   Then the Albert will call
it tke northern points.    Thus she will
w the northern points once a week,
i bring all the ports and Prince Ru-
rt into direct communication.     She
run on a schedule and that means
great deal to Prince Rupert as well s
e business  people  at  the   different
ports.   It will do much to build up the
oca! trade and bring business here that
w goes south.
The Prince Rupert and Prince George
ill go to Stewart, making the trip from
ire in 10 hours. These two boats are
ueh the fastest on the service and
ve at least four or five hours from Van-
tver to here. A complete schedule
the three boats will be found below.
must be remembered however, that
8 Prince Rupert starts on June 12th,
iGeorge,
and the Prince Albert on June 15th.
The Prince George will not arrive from
the old country until one month later,
and she will not get into commission
until the first Thursday in July.
Already the Prince Rupert has secured
a full list of passengers for her first
trip. The public, including business
people and tourists applied for reservations very early. This is a bright outlook
for the new boats. That they will get
all the business they can handle is assured as they have the carrying capacity and make the time.
A  Reception.
Upon the arrival of the Prince Rupert
on June 15th, Captain Nicholson, the
general manager of the coast service and
the other officials who will accompany
him, will tender a reception to thc mayor
and council, representatives of the Board
of Trade, Publicity Club, Real Estate
Exchange, the press and others on board
the boat. These will also be shown over
the boat. After two o'clock and until
5 p. m., the public will be welcome to
go aboard and inspect the ship. This
invitation will undoubtedly be accepted
by a majority of the citizens as the Prince
Rupert will be the finest steamer that
has yet .entered the harbour.
Home Port
Prince Rupert will be the home port
of the steamer Prince Albert and she
will secure all her provisions and
supplies here, and Prince Rupert will
also be the chief port of the two larger
boats which start from Seattle and go
through to Stewart. The two larger
boats will carry 1200 tons of freight and
300 passengers each.

banquet to the visitors was dispensed
with, out of respect for the deceased
sovereign.
In addressing the brethren the grand
master spoke of his pleasure and satisfaction in the progress made by the lodge
and also of the warmth of his reception.
Judge Young, past grand master was
also present and gave a splendid but

Visited Tsimpsean Lodge Saturday
Evening���Satisfactory Reports.
Tsimpsean Lodge A. F. & A. M. under
dispensations had an official visit from
most worshipful Brother H. N. Rich of
Ladner, B. C. on Saturday night. He is
the grand master of the order in British
Columbia and his visit was unique in
the fact that this is the most northerly
point ever visited by a grand master in
his official capacity. The grand master
was accompanied by Rt. Wor. Bro.
J. M. Rudd of Nanaimo. Several other
prominent visitors were also present.
Tsimpsean Lodge exemplified the third
degree for the benefit of the grand master
who came on a visit of inspection to
recommend the granting of a charter to
the lodge. He was well satisfied with the
work of W. M. Dowling and his assistants after a thorough examination. The
meeting was largely attended by members
and local visitors.  The lodge room was

The Other Man.
'So you are not going to marry Miss
Gotrox   after   all,   eh?'   said   DeLong.
'No, I guess not,' replied Short-

'Indeed!' exclaimed DeLong. 'Who
is he?'
'Her father,' answered Shortleigh
as he meandered slowly away.
Valuable Property.
'What do you think of this, Henry?'
remarked Mrs. Peckem, looking up
from the paper she was perusing. 'A
woman in Ohio has sued a railway
company for $10,000 because of the

'Well, rejoined Peckem, 'that isn't
too much if it was the thumb she kept
her husband under.'

LICENSES WILL WAIT AWHILE.
The question of city licenses is still one of the favourite topics of discussion
in this city. With some it is a question of business, with others a question of morality, but with most it takes a form of political interest and common curiosity.
Now that the boys who are really seeking licenses as a business proposition, get
down to details they find that it will be still many long weeks before they can even
get a hearing before the tribunal known as the License Commission Board, and
then they will have to take chances along with a score or more other applicants who
may be more pleasing in the eyes and judgment of the trio who compose the
board. The fate of a license applicant is a lingering and oftentimes disappointing
affair���particularly if the expectations are built on an election promise.
According to statute there are four quarterly meetings.at which a license
board may legally take up new business. The next one is early in June, but as none
of the applicants can get 30 days' advertising and other legal requirements accomplished in that time, no properly filed application can come before the commission.
That means waiting until the second week in September before another legal meeting
can be held at which applications legally promoted may be passed upon.
In the meantime the city council can pass license regulations, the commissioners
can revel in the obeisance of the booze men and the blind pigs will continue to flourish.
The new city council, at its first meeting, had spread before them fourteen applications for the portion of city engineer. The applications were there in many ways
and with a variety of salaries attached. A city engineer is one of the first officials
necessary���and the most important. When the Board of Trade took up the suggestion of the Optimist and advertised for tenders they did a good stroke of business and the new council no doubt appreciate having something tangible to go to
work on.

Mayor Stork suggested that, as an
engineer's services are required at once,
that the aldermen make a selection
from the list, although the proper way
would be to refer it to a committee to
go into the applications.
Alderman Barrow suggested that a
temporary engineer be employed for
immediate work and that a committee
take up the question of a'permanent man.
Alderman Hilditch agreed with this
plan.
After the committees were named,
Alderman Pattullo and Mclntyre moved
that all applications for the position
of city clerk be referred to the Streets,

REMAINS OF W. J. SALVUS.
Being  Taken  to  Spokane To-night
For   Interment.
  f
The steamer Omineca brought down
the remains of William J. Salvus, who
was killed on Saturday evening by a
blast at Mile 148. The deceased ran
for cover with the rest of the employees
when the warning was given, but he did
not get far enough away. A large piece
of rock struck him in the stomach
and death was instantaneous. The sad
affair cast a gloom over the entire camp
as Salvus was a general favorite with the
men. He was also well known and highly respected in this city and in St. Paul
and Spokane. He came here a year and
a half ago from Spokane when his brother, P. J. Salvus, took the contract.
P. J. Salvus is accompanying the body
to Spokane where the funeral will take
place. The body will be taken down on
the City of Seattle to-day.
The deceased is survived by a father,
Peter Salvus, and a mother in St. Paul,
and four brothers���P. J. of Prince Rupert, Harry Paul and Frank in St. Paul,
and George in St. Paul. He was only
24 years of age and unmarried.

jumps. One lady was led to ask,
"Does he go over the tape or under it?"
But the boxing bouts proved the
greatest attraction of all, and the battle
between the two "Reddies" was the
most memorable event in the fistiana
history of this young city. How they
swatted each other was a sight to be
remembered till they and the city grow
to manhood maturity.
When Reddy the Terrible, otherwise
Frank Cameron, and Reddy the Slasher,
sometimes called Donald McRae, donned
the mitts, faced each other and shook
hands, the great crowd at the ringside
held its breath. Both "men" were in the
pink of condition, but the Terrible
had the advantage in point of weight.
Notwithstanding this the Slasher led
all the way through and forced the
fighting. He led with right to face,
which the Terrible dodged, and landed a
short jab in the ribs. This shook up
the Terrible and he threw right and
left hooks, jabs and heavy swings as
fast as sparks fly from an anvil. The
Slasher stood his ground manfully and
it was hammer and tongs to the close
of the first round. In the second, the
Slasher sparred carefully for an opening, but the Terrible rushed him and
caught him a stinging left on the chin
and a jarring jab in the pie chest. The
Slasher rushed again and fought to
a clinch, which ended that fast round.
The third was even more furious, both
men pummeling at close quarters, taking
and giving very heavy punishment.
Both kept their feet until the gong sounded and the umpire declared it a draw,
which decision was greeted with great
shouts  of  satisfaction.
There was to be a tug o' war following
this, but the owner of the rope was not
drawn on either team and he disappeared
with the rope in his possession.
Little Leonora Pike was given a
special prize for her graceful dancing
of the sailor's hornpipe. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Pike, is seven

LOCAL TRADE BOOMING.
Territory   for   which   This   City   is
Distributing   Point.
When the Port Simpson left Monday
morning she cleared up all the freight
for up river points, with the exception of
a small lot of machinery. This is the
first time this spring the wharf has been
cleared of up river freight, and the trade
in that direction is rapidly growing. The
Port Simpson is making two trips per
week now, carrying one hundred tons
of freight each trip.
The Cetriana is another boat that will
increase the shipping facilities of the
local merchants. Stewar is trading
almost entirely now with Prince Rupert
for supplies of all kinds-furniture, lumber, hardware, drygoods and groceries.
Every steamer going from here has all
the freight she can carry, and this evidence that the Stewart tradesmen are so
generally favoring Prince Rupert
instead of those of Vancouver means a
large expansion of the wholesale as well
as retail business of this city.

MARK TWAIN MAXIMS.
Pity is for the living, envy is for the
dead.
A man may have no bad habits and
have worse.
Man is the only animal that blushes
or needs to.
Wrinkles should merely indicate where
smiles have been.
It is more trouble to make a maxim
than it is to do right.
He was as shy as a newspaper when
referring to its own merits.
The very ink in which history is
written is merely fluid prejudice.
It was a schoolboy who said faith is
believing  what  you  know  ain't so.
In statesmanship get the formalities
right; never mind about the moralities.
The principal difference between a
lie and a cat is that the cat has onl y nine
lives.
There are two times in a man's life
when he should not speculate, when he
can't afford it and when he can.
We should be careful to get out of
experience only the wisdom there is
in it, and stop there; lest we like the cat
that sits down on a hot stove lid. She
will never sit down on a hot lid again,
and that is well; but also she will never
sit down on a cold one any more.
The Provincial Government has decided to erect a government building, court
house and police station at Stewart. The
plans for the same have been received by
government Agent McMullen and he
will get the construction started at once.
UNCLE WALT'S CORNER.
Saturday Evening.
The hausfrau has the shanty snug, from
kitchen sink to parlor rug, for dad is
coming home; of dust there is no sign
or trace, and everything is in its place;
contentment glows upon her face, for dad
is coming home. She's worked all week
from sun to sun; the hausfrau's work is
never done���but dad is coming home;
her hands are hard from doing things���
the bread she bakes, the clothes she rings!
���but as she does her work she sings, for
dad is coming home. She'll see him in a
little while, and he'll reward her with a
smile, for dad is coming home, and all her
weariness will fly, as evanescent as a
sigh, before his loving gentle eye, for dad
is coming home. The little kids can hardly wait! They're out there watching by
the gate, for dad is coming home! And
he will draw the youngsters near, and
exercise each childish fear, and tell the
yarns they like to hear��� their dad is
coming home! These humble homes
where love abides, where trouble takes
its grip and hides, when dad is coming
home! They are this nation's greatest
prize; so, let there still be joyous cries,
and happy hearts and smiling eyes when
dad is coming home!

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
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
BUILD NEW TRAILS.
Up Gold Creek from Kitselas Superintendent Gone  Up.
Road superintendent Clarke left on the
Port Simpson on Monday morning for
Kitselas where he will get the work started on the trails up the Gold Creek
district. These trails were originally
built some years ago but have been overgrown and require re-opening. The
superintendent will have them ready
for the big rush of prospectors who are
preparing to go up the Gold Creek this
summer. Many valuable claims were
staked last season and the district has
not been scratched yet. The Kitselas
Prospectors Association are taking an
active interest in the district. Government Agent McMullen also intends to
visit Kitselas in the near future, possibly
next week if he can make the grade. This
week he goes to Stewart and the Portland
Canal district. When at Kitselas he will
go over the work under way at present
and also inquire into what is necessary
for the future.
London Editor Dead.
Malcolm Bremner, for many years
managing editor and chief editorial
writer of the London, Ont. Free Press,
and one of the best known newspaper
men in Ontario, was found dead in bed
last week. He was in his usual health
when he retired.
The  Big  Dunsmuir  Deal.
A first payment of $2,200,000 out of the
$11,000,000 involved in the deal has been
made by William Mackenzie to James
Dunsmuir and by which the Dunsmuir
collieries pass into the hands of a syndicate of capitalists organized by the president of the Canadian Northern. It is
understood that the purchase will be
completed on June 15, the balance of the
sum on that date being paid to Mr.
Dunsmuir. A condition of the sale is
said to be that Dunsmuir takes
$4,000,000 of the Canadian Northern
bonds.
MINING
Gold Creek District.
All the way from the mouth of Gold
Creek to its headwaters eighteen miles
away, very promising properties were
located last season, all giving good essays
in gold, silver, and copper, while others
are placer claims on the creek itself on
which coarse gold can be sluiced right on
the surface of the bars.
A good trail was built up Gold Creek
a number of years ago, but since then a
portion of it has been grown over by
brush and in some places it is filled by
rock slides. $6,500 has been appropriated for repair of this trail this season,
and it is believed that the road Superintendent will be here very soon to start
the  work.
If all the reports are true concerning
Gold Creek and the surrounding hills,
a more promising field for the incoming
prospectors is hard to find. Considerable
capital will surely come in this summer,
and a boom that will equal that on in
Portland Canal may be reasonably
expected before fall.
Those interested in the Bulkley Valley
and Hudson's Bay Mountain are expecting a rush there this summer. Very rich
claims were located last season and
things look good for the coming year.
A cable is being stretched across the
Skeena River for the purpose of oper-
ating a ferry at Kitselas. The recent
finds of copper, gold, silver, iron and
coal up the Copper river has attracted a
great many prospectors and the ferry
will take them across the Skeena with
their packs and supplies. Mancel Clarke
has located three iron claims about 38
miles up the Copper river and it runs
about 38 per cent iron. He states that
the body is 4,500 feet by 3000.
Samuel Harrison left on the Beatrice
at noon to-day for Vancouver and he
will also attend the sale of Stewart lots at
Victoria on May 30th and 31st.
Goods must be bought in the right
markets to get the prices. Ben Davis
