AN EDITOR'S CRASS IGNORANCE
False Statements Made and
Reflections Cast.
yjtor of Empire Out With the
Hammer ��� Aldermen Resent the
Attack��� Ignorance was the Cause
of it all���Mayor Stork is  Sorry.
A sensation was sprung on the council
on Saturday night when Aid. Pattullo
drew attention to an editoria lpublished
in the Empire which he very strongly
ted to and stated that the writer
wns guilty of crass ignorance. The
article was on the telephone question
cast slurs and insinuations upon the
council and particularly upon some
ol the council. It criticised the action
of the council on the manner the tel-
lone question was being handled and
made statements contrary to the fact.
Aid. Pattullo was the one who brought
e article to the attention of the mayor
and aldermen. He did so by first reading aloud the statements and then
said in part the following:-
"It is very unfair and malicious and
do not know why the newspaper,
pretending to place facts before the
people, could be so crassly ignorant, for
that article displays nothing but ignorance. Some of the statements are also
a reflection upon some members of this
council." Aid. Pattullo for one resented
them and did not hesitate in saying so.
He said that some time ago he took this
telephone question up with the editor
oi the Empire and during that conversation he found that the editor was
ignorant of the whole matter. He is the
same yet, and judging from the tone
ol Ws writings he is even more so. The
alderman intimated also  that he knew

Hawlton,    B.   C,   June    25.-The
Interior News", published at Aldermere,
Mils, morning's issue,    publishes the
following:
''This paper received by to-day's mail,

some of the reasons why that newspaper
had assumed tbe attitude it had and he
for one was prepared to fight the thing
'Vtyo He considered it, however, a
newspaper which wilfully deviated to the
end of its tether and he believed it
would be so in this case.
It was most lametable that a paper
should publish such articles.
Mayor Stork expressed sorrow at the
article thus referred to. Aid. Mobley
thought there must be some misunderstanding as all the papers in their news
columns had published the facts and how
such stuff as referred to could be presented he did not understand.
Aid. Lynch also criticized the article.
He thought that if the editor had a
little more knowledge on the subject it
would be better for all concerned.
Aid. Pattullo then asked the city
solicitor if there was any other way to
handle the telephone question than by a
petition from the people.
The solicitor replied most emphatically in the negative. The council cannot act at least unless ten per cent of
the property owners request them to do
so by petition.
That settles the matter. It is fairly
up to the people, as has been stated in
these columns on several occassions. If
the people want a municipal telephone
they will have to sign a petition. If
they want a private corporation to own
and operate the telephone then leave the
petition alone. The thing is plain enough
and there is no excuse for any misunderstanding. Petitions may be found in the
city hall, at McCaffery & Gibbons
office at Lynch Bros store and President
Morris of the Board of Trade will be
around to see those who have not signed
and are unable to find one of the other
lists.

(Special to the Optimist)
Salt Lake City, June 27.���A fierce
fight took place on a train on the Oregon
Short Line this morning, between three
masked robbers and the crew of the train.
One of the robbers was a passenger on the
train and donning a mask on the rear
platform crept over the tender and holding a revolver to the head of the engineer
commanded him to stop. When this was
done two other masked robbers jumped
aboard and presented their revolvers.
Among the crew were only two revolvers
and these were soon emptied. But they
put up a desperate fight with the robbers
for a short time, when they were shut
up in the baggage car with one man
as guard.
The other two robbers"went through"
the passengers, taking all the valuables
With only one man on guard over the
passengers the other blew open the
Wells Fargo safe and took all the cash.
Then he blew a whistle and the three
jumped off.
The hold-ip took place at two o'clock
this morning, six miles north of Oregon.

STEWART MAY BE
AMONG THE LOST
PARTY   OF   PROSPECTORS   PERHAPS SWEPT AWAY
Founder of Stewart, City One of
Party of Seven Reported Missing
Since Terrific Storm Swept over
Cook Inlet.
(Special to the Oprimist)
Seward, Alaska, June 27.���It is reported here that seven men were lost
in the recent heavy storm, and that F. R.
Stewart, the founder of Stewart City,
is among the missing. A most terrific
storm was raging along the coast and
sweeping over Cook Inlet from Friday
morning until yesterday, and the party
of seven had left here to prospect along
the coast. It was at first thought possible
they might have taken refuge at Fire
Island, but a rescue party touched there
and reports that so far the search has
been of no avail. The only hope now is
that they may have been picked up by
some passing vessel, but there is little
ground to base this upon.
LEADERS OF LEAGUE
Spokane and Vancouver have come
To   be   Topl-Notchers.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, June 27.���The games
yesterday ended in Vancouver 2, Tacoma
nil. Eleven innings were played and
Breen was seen at his best in a triple
play. Seattle beat Spokane by a score
of one to nothing. In Saturday's games
the scores were:- Vancouver nil, Tacoma
3. Spokane 4, Seattle 1.
Spokane plays Vancouver today. The
two are now the leaders of the league,
with Vancouver one game behind Spok-
BIG STEAMER ON FIRE
Had     One     Thousand     Passengers
Aboard at Time of Explosion.
(Special to the Optimist)
Lacrosse, Wis. June 27.���The large
excursion steamer "J. S.", with one
thousand passengers aboard on a Sunday
excursion, blew out a cylinder head and
caught fire on the Wisconsin river.
The captain immediately beached his
vessel on an island and threw out a
gangplank for the passengers to land.
In the meantime, however, many women
had thrown their children into the water
ahd had jumped in after them. They
were rescued with difficulty. No lines
were lost but the vessel burned to the
water's edge.
Cannery Destroyed
Vancouver, June 27.���(Special)���The
Eagle cannery, near Point Atkinson,
was totally destroyed by fire last night.
ODDS BEING LAID ON JEFFRIES
Colored Man's Superstition the
Alleged Cause.
Governor Assures Rickard Big Fight
Will not he Interfered with���
Langford-Ketchell Go Will Take
Place in Morning.
Reno, June 27.���The betting is now
ten to six on Jeffries. The evident
trepidation into which the superstitious
colored man was thrown by being
stalled in Tunnel Thirteen, on his way
here, having had its reflex action.
Another assurance has been received
from Governor Dickerson that no interference with the fight will be made by
the state authorities and the building
of the arena is therefore being rushed to
completion.
The site of the huge building is a rocky
field in East Reno, about a mile and a
half from the heart of the city. It is
familiar in ring history as the scene of the
Hart and Root contest on July 4th 1906.
On the one side it is flanked by the tracks
of the Southern Pacific railway, which is
putting in a large passenger platform for
the occassion, and the other by a trolley
line from the city.
Tex Rickard is building the arena with
some idea of permanency. The building
is about 300 feet aquare, modelled along
the lines of the structure begun in San
Francisco for the big fight. No change
will be made in the original plan *of
seats.
Jack Johnson whose manager, Tom
Flanagan, looked over several sites,
finally settled on a roadhouse three miles
southwest of Reno, known as Rick's
resort, and his training quarters are
settled there. Jeffries is stationed at
Maona Springs, three miles south of Reno
A double fight will be Reno's offering
for July 4th, the Langford-Ketchell
fight taking place in the new arena in the
morning and the big battle in the afternoon. Reno is already filling up with
sports. Over one hundred newspaper
correspondents came in Saturday and
yesterday.
METLAKATLA
WAS INVADED
STR.   CHIEFTAIN    TOOK    FULL
LIST   OF  PASSENGERS.
Excursion Yesterday was well Patronized���Rupert People Delighted
with the Place and would like to
Secure Lots there.
About a hundred people took in the
excursion yesterday to the pretty Indian village across the harbor and among
the islands. The Str. Chieftain left the
G. T. P. wharf at 1:30 p.m. and made a
good trip to Metlakatla. The passengers
went ashore and walked about the g.avel
paths, the green grass and the beautiful flower gardens that are now in full
bloom. The berry bushes and small fruit
trees are showing great piomise of a
-bountiful crop while the rose bushes ate
filled with buds that are well advanced
Metlakatla is a natural  beauty spot.
It is milder than Prince Rupert,
which is caused by the Japan currents
in the Pacific running up from the Queen
Charlotte islands. The weather is also
more favorable and the village site
is an ideal one for residential purposes.
For nearly two miles straight ahead
could be built at small expense a beautiful boulevard and driveway with a row
of residences on the opposite side. The
soil is almost perfect for growing flowers
of all kinds, small fruits, vegetables and
garden grass. The day is not far distant
when Metlakatla will be a source of
negotations between Prince Rupert and
the Dominion Government, is the prc-
dection of many who have visited the
village.
The Chieftain remained at the wharf
for a couple of hours and returned to
Prince Rupert, with nearly all the
passengers carrying a boquet of flowers.
The Princess Royal arrived from Vancouver, with a number of mining engineers and operators bound for Stewart
Among them were A. D. Tennant,
director of the Red Cliff, G. Alvenslaben,
and Cecil M. Rryant.
The Inlander got through the Kitselas
canuon this morning and reports good
steamboat water. The captain wires
that it looks as though the high water was
over for the season.
WATER RECORD
TO BE GRANTED
MAYOR STORK HAS CONFIDENCE
IN CITY'S APPLICATION
Deputation was Received by a Committee which will Report to Cabinet���Decision is Expected this
Week after the  Cabinet  Meeting.
Mayor Stork, Aid. Barrow, City
Solicitor Manson, and Engineer Agnew
arrived home Saturday afternoon on the
Beatrice after spending a week or ten
days at Victoria and Vancouver. They
went down in connection with the
hearing of the city's application for
a water record, Mayor Stork reported
to the council on Saturday night that
the deputation was met by a committee
of the cabinet and treated in a courteous
manner. Those present were Attorney-
General Bowser and Provincial Secretary Young. The Mayor was well
pleased with the reception and although no decision was given, and will
not be until a full meeting of the cabinet
is held, he believed that the city's water
record would be granted. A cabinet
meeting will be held this week and the
decision  is  expected  before  July   1st.
When seen by the Optimist this
morning the mayor said that there was
nothing else to report. Asked if the
deputation did anything about the
several pieces of property thle city requires from the government, the mayor
replied that they merely presented a
memoranda to the ministers who will
bring it before the cabinet.
While in Vancouver the deputation
were able to secure copies of some four
by-laws from that city and these will
be used in framing the Prince Rupert
by-laws.
Along the waterfront near where
Peter Black lands his coal is a barge
of lumber bottom side up. It was towed
there from the Georgetown mills by the
tug McCullough, and contains some
forty or fifty thousand feet of building
timber consigned to the Sash and Door
company.
J. Von Alvensleban a real estate man
from Vancouver, is in the city and will
return tonight to the south.      | r

Not   Affected   By   Depression   in
United    States
Vancouver, June 22.���Thomas C.
Irving, general manager of the Brad-
street agencies for Western Canada, is in
Vancouver on business connected with
the agency here. Mr. Irving's position
is such as to give him an opportunity
to learn the financial changes of the
country as rapidly as they occur, and
speaking of the situation, particularly
of the western portion, he is, to say the
least, optimistic.
"While there is growing stringency
at the present time in financial circles in
the United States," he said, "Canada is
enjoying an easy money market. This
may be accounted for partially through
the fact that millions of dollars are
coming here from the States monthly,
being brought by the great tide of immigrants seeking homes and investment-
They are an energetic, thrifty, intelligent, desirable class of people and readily realize the great opportunities afforded here to acquire rich lands and
business properties which will soon
double the investments made.
"It does not require great foresight
to predict the future of this western
country," he continued, "its great lumber forests packed up by the most fertile agricultural and horticultural sections can find but one definition���stride
forward.
"Financial conditions in Canada were
never better. At the present time our
credit, both in Britain and the States is
without limit. There is the strongest
evidence supporting this conclusion, particularly in railroad construction, for
which British capital can be had in almost any quantity.
"This will prove a most prosperous
year in railroad development and the
building of new lines all over the west.
Branch lines are now reaching out in
all directions and none too rapidly to
meet the increasing demands for transportation facilities."

TELEPHONE PETITION.
Municipal ownership has long been fought for by the Optimist. The telephone
system was one of the main utilities this paper advocated for municipal ownership.
The citizens 01 at least a number of them, joined hands with the Optimist in preserving this plum for the people, and shutting out the B. C. Telephone Co., or any
other corporation. The time has now come for all the people to show their colors.
Are you for municipal ownership, or are you not? Your answer will be known
by your action. Sign the petition and say nothing. The council must have a petition
because the law says so. The petition must come from the people, unsolicited by
the council, because the law says so. When the law of the province "says so"
there is nothing else to it. Any individual or any newspaper which argues, or pretends to believe, otherwise, is guilty of gross ignorance, 01 of malice. The first named
arouses pity, the second, contempt.
There is only one way to secure a municipally operated and owned telephone
system and that is by petitioning the City Council to take over the assets and
liabilities of the company which has been at work foi some weeks past. To complete the work and have the system installed and working will not take much longer.
The council has its hands tied. It is up to the people to untie them. The only alternative is to grant a franchise to a private corporation.

ANOTHER NEW
STEAMER HERE
BOSCOWITZ VESSEL CONSTRUCTED  FOR THIS TRADE
Venture got in Saturday After Her
Long Trip Around the Cape from
the Famous Shipbuilding Yards
on the Clyde, Scotland.
Captain Goulding received a warm
welcome back when he put into port
Saturday in command of the new
Boscowitz steamer Venture. For the
captain is an old favorite, although so
young-looking a man for his varied deep
sea experiences. He has been with the
Boscowitz company for eighteen years,
and was captain of the St Denis before
Prince Rupert was and up to lately.
He was smiling over this in an chat in
his cosy cabin yesterday, and of those
old times he said:
"It is hard to make an old coastwise
navigator believe there is such a deep
water and well protected harbor as this
is anywhere along the coast. Many's
the time I've gone past here and never
suspected it. When we came up this way
we always kept close to the Kinnahan
Islands, as we thought this bay was full
���of rocks and extremely dangerous."
Clarence Arthur, who was chief engineer on the St Denis, holds the same
position on the new boat. He was
specially commissioned to go to the old
Kirkpatrick shipyards on the Clyde and
superintend the construction of the
engines for the new boat, and that he
succeeded thoroughly can be attested
by any of the passengers who came up
Saturday, for they all declare there was
not the slightest vibration of the new
boat, but that it moved so smoothly
tbey could only tell when they were
going by looking out of the window.
The Venture had about thirty passengers and only about half a cargo of freight,
it being thought wise not to load the
boat heavily on her first trip. But she
handled about three hundred steerage
passengers on her way up. Among these
were a bunch oi two hundred Indians
from Alert Nay for the canneries on
Rivers Inlet. The captain is immensely
pleased with the new boat. He says she
handles herself as easily as a yacht, and
has the speed.
It is pleasant to record that there has
been a great change in steamboating in
these northern waters since the early
days to which Captain Goulding refers,
When the great stampede first drew
attention to this northern country the
steamer boneyards all along the coast
were ramsacked for any old hulk that
could be made to float because it was
believed there was no permanency in
the business. Now, everybody has faith
in the permanency of Prince Rupert,
and the Venture is the second steamer
within the last two weeks we have been
called upon to welcome, both built at
large expense and brought all around
the cape, for this particular trade.
The new steamer named after the
Venture which was lost by fire on the
Skeena, is about the same length as
tbe Vadso with four feet more beam.
Passenger accommodation is provided
for 56 saloon passengers and many
steerage. The dining saloon will seat
50 and every modern convenience is
provided. The vessel has been constructed with bulkheads and double
bottom.
Her engines with twin screws will
give an average speed of twelve knots
The first class accommodation is contained in a deckhouse on the awning
deck and, has 28 staterooms, each
with double lower and single upper
berth, folding lavatories and upholstered settees.
The after end of the saloon contains
the ladies' sitting room and has large
lookout windows at the stern. The
forward end of the saloon is a general
lounge, and also has obseivation windows. The dining saloon is on the
main deck, right aft, and has seating
accommodation for 50 people.
The smoking room and bar are right
aft on the boat deck and are reached
by a companion way from the main
saloon. On this deck also are the captain's and officers' rooms and above
these the chart and wheel house and fly
ing bridge.
The between decks are fitted with 140
berths for steerage passengers which
are portable, so that this space can when
necessity arises, be used for cargo.
Below the main deck are the cargo
holds, which are two in number, the
main forward hold having a large
capacity. An unique feature of the after
hold is that the double bottom tank
tops are level with the tips oi the tunnels
which are below for this purpose, and
by this means give an unbroken space
for carriage of cargo. The ship is provided throughout with double bottom
and watertight bulkheads and is of
modern construction in eveiy particular,
She is fitted with the latest type of quick
cargo hoists and has a special derrick
for handling lifts up to fifteentons.

CUSHIONS FOR ALDERMEN

Nightly sessions, long hours, and hard

ordered for the chairs occupied by the
press is not known, but if not the aldermen are requested to take into consideration the hardness of the reporters'
chairs. They are also reminded that the
press is suffering from the same trouble
as themselves. A cushion and an arm
chair would be appreciated.
NEW MINISTER
In Methodiat Church made a Favorable Impression
Rev. Chas. R. Sing preached his
first sermon in the Prince Rupert Methodist church yesterday and there was a
large attendance of the congregation.
The new pastor made a very favorable
impression by two splendid sermons.
At night he preached from the text
"And each man helped his neighbor."
The chief feature of the address was
work. He pointed out the necessity of
work and how everyone in Prince Rupert
must work and also help his neighbor.
That is the only road to success.
POLICE COURT.
Frank Lark was brought down from
Kitselas on Saturday to appear before
Judge Young for election. He was
committed for trial in Kitselas on a
charge of having hit a man over the head
with a pitch fork.
Blanche Hart was in the police court
Saturday charged with being drunk and
disorderly. She was fined $10 and $2
costs.   She settled.
A number of Indian sailors deserted
their ship at Port Simpson on Saturday.
The provincial police got busy and the
deserters are at work again.
Frank Plant appeared before Judge
Young this morning and elected for a
speedy trial. It will come at the next
sitting of the county court which is set
for  July  11th.

Excellent progress is reported in the
work undertaken by the parade committe
for the Dominion Day celebration, their
efforts to make this feature one of the
crowning events of the holiday surely
pointing to success. The merchants along
with the transfer companies have displayed a becoming patriotic spirit by
agreeing to heartily and substantially
contribute in the way of floats and displays for a fitting demonstration in the
parade.    The novel and attractive exhibits promised  are certainly new and
interesting.    While the committee are
loath to give more detailed information
it has been learned that in the zoological
division in particular great expense has
been   entailed   in   bringing   to   Prince
Rupert rare specimens from the most
remote parts of the world.  The Beatty-
ossimus for instance, is an almost extinct specimen, in fact the one to be
exhibited in this parade is said to be the
only one extant.    In competition with
Bungling's   and   Baham   and  Barley's
circus the committee was the successful bidder for this exhibit and are able
after tremendous   outlay to present it
before the people for the first time anywhere on Dominion Day.   The Nadenifunt is an extremely interesting and rom-
atic monstrosity, captured in the wilds
of Buzzululand, by a committee of the
Board of Trade of Prince Rupert.   The
high jinks by this exhibit will be among
the most humorous stunts of the day.
To reassure the public we are compelled
to mention Dawsonopus.    Contrary to
the implication of its name, this is a
perfectly harmless, subdued variety and
the  people  need  have  no anxiety in
witnessing in an open cage the marvelous
antics by this high priced exhibition.
The  Crippenaroo is a wonderful two
legged  singing  bird  with  an  almost
humane voice and intellect, it always
comes when called.    This variety has
never been known to touch the earth,
living entirely in midair.   The credit of
this 1910 discovery is due to adventurous aviators sailing in the north.
The Dunniraffe has been a prize win
ner wherever shown. This specimen was
privately exhibited during the municipal
election and carried off the medal with
$100 cash. Many are anxious to observe
and catch the fine points of the work of
this number if possible.
The Westonovine is as yet untamed.
After a few more trials outdoors his comic
stunts are expected to be perhaps more
peaceful and it is the hope of the committee that they will have sufficiently
tamed him to permit his appearance
in the parade.
These curious and original sights will
surely be the principal objects of interest but it is safe to say many additional
monstrosities will be seen. The committee are certainly showing some speed
leaving no doubt in the minds of the
public as to the successful outcome of
their work.
Pedestrians and team owners are
warned of the danger of approaching
too closely to these exhibits.

Prince   Rupert   Take   Notice
An anti-fly campaign has been inaugurated in Victoria. The house-fly
is a pest that ought to be exterminated.
The Ladies' Home Journal says that it
has been largely driven out of England,
because its breeding places have been
destroyed. The house-fly breeds in
stables, in neglected places where household refuse is thrown, in garbage cans
that are left open and not properly
cleansed, and so on. Keep such places
clean and the house-fly will become
to a great extent a thing of the past.
Here is a case in which an ounce of pre-
cention is worth several pounds of cure.
Will Double the Output
Mr. William Mackenzie told a Winnipeg reporter that his coal company
intended to couble the output of the
collieries lately sold by the firm of R.
Dunsmuir & Sons. The new concern
will be a tremendous power in the
Pacific Northwest.
Hays Busy Denying Rumors

in Vancouver. He also denies the Winnipeg interview which made him say he
would build an hotel here.
Ginger an  Intoxicant
It will be illegal hereafter to sell

THE LAW ON
THEFT OF ORE
FOR   INFORMATION   OF  OPERATORS HAVING RICH DEPOSITS
Following is the Text of the Amendment to the Crimminal Code
Assented to on May 4th���It relates  to  the  Stealing of  Ore*'���
His Majesty, by and with the advice
and consent of the Senate and House of
Commons of Canada, enacts as follows:-
1. The Criminal Code, chapter 146
of the Revised Statutes, 1906, is amended
by inserting the following section immediately after section 424:���
"424a. Everyone is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to two years'
imprisonment who, having in his possession, or upon his premises, with his
knowledge, any rock, ore, mineral.stone,
or quartz of a value of not less than
twenty-five cents per pound, or in the
case of mica of a value not less than seven
cents per pound, or any partly melted,
partly treated or partly manufactured
gold or silver which there is reasonable
ground to suspect has been dealt with
contrary to the provisions of paragraph
(b) or (c) of section 424, is unable or refuses to account satisfactorily for or
prove his right to the possession of the
same.
"2. If any proceeding under this
section any question arises as to the
value of any rock, ore, mineral, stone
or quartz, the judge, magistrate, justice or other officer before whom the proceeding is pending may order such
assay or assays, test or tests, to be made
as may be deemed requisite for determining such value.
"3. No action or prosecution for a
violation of this section shall be commenced or undertaken in any part of
Canada unless or until an order has been
passed by the Governor in Council
declaring this section to be in force in
such part of Canada. Any such order
may be amended, revoked or renewed
from time to time in whole or in part
by any subsequent order in council.
"4. No prosecution shall be had under
this section unless it had been initiated
on the information or complaint of a
manager or director of a mining company
or on the information or complaint of
some one thereunto authorized by a
mining company or a manager or director thereof, or by or with the authority
of the attorney-general of the province
in which the offence is alleged to have
been committed, or by the owner or part
owner of a mine who deposes under oath
that he believes that rock, ore, or other
substance similar to some of those
mentioned in this section has been stolen
or wrongfully taken from the mine."
