EARTH DUMPERS
MUSTJAY TAX
0F TWENTY   FIVE   CENTS   PER
CUBIC   FOOT   DUMPED
Aid. Hilditch Pre.en.ti Minority
Report in Favor of Bond* But Committees Recommendation Adopted
-Aid. Barrow's View of it.
, The question of dumping material
on the streets came up at the city council
in the form of a report by the streets,
works and property committee that
permits be granted to applicants for
permission to dump on payment of a
ram of twenty-five cents per cubic
yard of material dumped. Aid. Hilditch presented a minority report to
the effect that bonds instead of cash
be put up for those seeking permits for
dumping.
Aid. Barrow explained his view that
some levy was necessary upon those dealing the privilege of dumping, and
said that he thought the amount proposed would not ih any way retard
building advancement in the city.
Aid. Hilditch repeated his contention
in favor of applicants putting up bonds
instead of cash. Bonds he thought
would be equally as servicable to the
city's interest in the matter  as cash.
Aid. Mobley said that he had been
thinking over the matter since as a
member of the streets, works and
property committee, he had approved
the granting of permission to applicants
seeking to dump earth on the streets.
He now strongly advocated the taxing
of such. Applicants were evidently desirous of preparing their lots for building
and dumping stuff gratis to be removed afterwards at the city's expense
therefore a tax was advisable.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that no permits be issued except to applicants
who were ready to guraahtee that they
would start building as soon as their
excavation and dumping were completed. He moved that the committee's
report regarding dumping be adopted.
Ald.Mobley seconded the motion which
was carried.

POPULAR MAN
UNDER ARREST
IN PRINCE RUPERT  IS WANTED
AT STEWART
Edgar Ridlieh, Young and Not Long
Married, Was With Young Wife
When Arrested Last Night on the
Prince George.
A young man named Edgar Ridlieh
is detained in the police station today
having been arrested last night on the
s. s. Prince George on instructions sent
to Provincial Police Chief Wynn. Ridlieh
is wanted at Stewart on a charge of
misappropriation.
Along with an older man named
L. Williams he was in the restaurant
business in Stewart, and was very
popular there. He was a well known
figure in the social circle, and prominent in all undertakings for the
prosperity of Stewart.
Only recently Ridlieh was married
and his young wife was with him on
the steamer when he was arrested.
Though anxious to remain by her
husband she was persuaded by him to
go on to her friends in the south. Ridlieh
will be removed to Stewart at the first
opportunity.
It is not known exactly how far
Ridlieh himself may be responsible for
the defalcations for which his arrest
has been effected. A strong feeling exists that he has been the victim of a
more cunning and older mind, and made
the scapegoat for the misappropriations
of another. Those who knew Ridlieh
personally say that he was always a
straight spoken, straight dealing young
fellow, and very great sympathy is felt
for his young wife and for the young
man himself.

CHARGES OF GRAFT
Seattle Wants  Mayor Gill  Back  at

CITY COUNCIL AND
LABOR DISPUTE
MAYOR TO LOOK INTO MATTER
WITH  MR.   M'MORDIE
Aid. Hilditch Brings Up Subject at
City Council, ahd There is a
General Desire That it Should
Be Settled.
Aid. Hilditch introduced the matter
of the present labour dispute over the
Second avenue contract, in the form 0 f
an enquiry whether anything had been
done by the council yet towards bringing
about an understanding between S. P.
MeMordie and the men of his first
laboring gang. Aid. Hilditch gave his
view that the terms of the contract
were framed with a view of letting the
men have an eight hour day at a fair
living wage, and argued that it was
surely owing to some flaw in the contract that any other interpretation could
be put on it by which the men's services
could be dispensed with if they did not
wish to work a ten hour day.
The mayor in reply said that so far
nothing has been done, but that he was
to take up the matter in the morning
with the engineer and Mr. MeMordie.
According to his own interpretation of
the terms of the contract the mayor
was inclined to agree with Aid. Hilditch that the spirit of those terms was
in favor of an eight hour day at a fair
wage. He, however, thought that the
contract was also intended to allow for
overtime being optional to the men at
the same rate of pay. The mayor was
anxious that there should be no possibility of quibbles arising over the
terms of the city contracts.
Aid. Barrow spoke of the clear in*
tention of the council in agreeing upon
the terms of these contracts, that the
men should have some time to attend
to their own private affairs after working
hours. "Those who elected us" said
Aid. Barrow "did so on the understanding that we favored an eight hour
day."
Aid. Hilditch spoke of the excellent
gang of men S. P. MeMordie had to
start with on his contract work. It was a
pleasure to see such an efficient gang
at work on the streets of Prince Rupert.
But the ten hour day dispute had caused
trouble, and these men were no longer
working for the city. Aid. Hilditch
suggested that there must be some
ulterior motive in S. P. Mordie's action
in dismissing such a good gang when
he had plenty of places where he could
put them to work. He thought that the
work of the city should be done by the
best class of men it was possible to get,
and hoped that the mayor would impress upon Mr. MeMordie that it was
the desire of the council that these men
be re-instated.
This opinion roceived the general
accord of the council.
RESULT OF
THE INQUEST
TESTIMONY OF DR.  TREMAYNE
AND OTHERS
Verdict of Coroner's Jury That
Joseph Beaudoin Came to His
Death From a Rifle in the Hands
of Alphonse Reicher.
The inquest into the death of Joseph
Beaudoin was resumed before Coroner
McMullin last night,' and when all the
evidence was in the jury had little
difficulty in finding a verdict that
deceased came to his death by a bullet
from a* rifle in the hands of Alphonse
Reicher.. Hilton KearnB, of the office
of Williams and Manson, appeared for
the crown and J. R. Beatty was foreman
of the jury.
Sergeant Thomas W. Regan testified
that Reicher came to the police station
on the night of the 22nd and said that
he had accidentally shot his chum, in a
shack on the railway reserve, that the
man was in a bad state and needed
medical attention. Dr. Tremayne was
called upon nnd a launch was obtained
in which the three proceeded to the
shack about three quarters of a mile
away. There they found the wounded
man in the condition before described.
He was moaning and evidently in great
pain, lying across the bunk with his feet
on the floor.
Reicher and the wounded man began to talk in French when witness
interposed telling Reicher to speak
English if at all, and cautioning him
that what he did say might be used in
evidence against him. Beaudoin mumbled
something to the effect that Reicher was
a d fool and should not have done
that. Reicher said they had always been
friends. They had been drinking two
or three days together and that night
Beaudoin had robbed him of $14.
"We quarrelled over it. I was sitting
on the bed with the gun in my hand
when it went off". After a moment he
added: "Look through that man's
clothes and you will find my $14.
There were two empty whiskey bottles in the shack and one part full.
Witness could not say if the deceased
had been drinking. Reicher smelt of
liquor when he came to the police station
and looked as though he might have
been drinking. The wounded man was
taken to the hospital and Reicher to
the jail. The next morning the latter
handed to witness $14. He did not know
how it came into his possession but had
felt sure the other man had it,
Dr. Tremayne described the nature
of the bullet wound on Beaudoin and
said the man had died from hemorrage
and shock.
David Sandstrom, a bookkeeper employed by Foley, Welch and Stewart,
said deceased had been working for that
firm and on the books there was $277.07
to his credit.
George St. Claire testified to the
identity of the deceased and said he
had known him for several years. He
did not know any of the man's relatives.
These were all the witnesses called
and the jury then retired but in a few
minutes returned and handed to the
coroner a verdict to the effect stated.

Situation Remains Unchanged, MeMordie   and   Men   Remain   Firm.
The situation regarding the labor
dispute on S. P. McMordie's contract
on Second avenue remains unaltered
today. Mr. MeMordie after paying off
thirty men on Saturday at 3 p.m. finds
that with the men he engaged to carry
oh the work on Saturday morning, he
has sufficient labor to meet the requirements of the contract in its present
stage.
"I had more labor offered than I
have use for" he said this morning.
The city engineer states that Mr.
MeMordie is conducting the work
according to the contract conditions,
and that there will be no interference
regarding the difference between labor
and contractor on the part of the city.
A number of the workmen who were
paid off on Saturday have started on
other jobs the unloading of the steel
steamer affording employment for
several; and several have been offered
work on the G. T. P. construction contracts.
MINING ON STREET
Port Arthur Lucky Enou gh to Walk
on Silver
Port Arthur, Sept. 2 3.���Work com*
menced today on the development of
the silver vein discovered in the early
spring within the southerly city limits
of Port Arthur. The property was
purchased by Cyrus W. Baker of Denver, Colo., and on the agreement pays
Stewart & Hewitson $50,000 and will
spend $20,000 at least in developments. The vein was uncovered in
quarrying operations and assays of
the ore ran from $500 to $800 a ton
The first work will be the sinking of
a 100-foot double shaft.
I
We unqualifiedly recommend the immediate
purchase of SILVER CUP MINING shares
at 12 1-2 cents per share. The Treasury fund
is fast growing into proportions that will enable the company to proceed on a scale that
is calculated to add great value to the shares.
After this treasury issue is disposed of and as
development proceeds, there will be a lot of
people wanting SILVER CUP stock, and to
secure it they will be obliged to offer a sufficient profit to the early purchaser to induce
him to sell.
Why not be one of the early purchasers
and thereby secure the stock at a price that
will give you the maximum of profit.

MAYOR TO LOOK INTO MATTER
WITH  MR.   M'MORDIE
Aid. Hilditch Brings Up Subject at
City Council, arid There is a
General Desire That it Should
Be Settled.
Aid. Hilditch introduced the matter
of the present labour dispute over the
Second avenue contract, in the form o f
an enquiry whether anything had been
done by the council yet towards bringing
about an understanding between S. P.
MeMordie and the men of his first
laboring gang. Aid. Hilditch gave his
view that the terms of the contract
were framed with a view of letting the
men have an eight hour day at a fair
living wage, and argued that it was
surely owing to some flaw in the contract that any other interpretation could
be put on it by which the men's services
could be dispensed with if they did not
wish to work a ten hour day.
The mayor in reply said that so far
nothing has been done, but that he was
to take up the matter in the morning
with the engineer and Mr. MeMordie.
According to his own interpretation of
the terms of the contract the mayor
was inclined to agree with Aid. Hilditch that the spirit of those terms was
in favor of an eight hour day at a fair
wage. He, however, thought that the
contract was also intended to allow for
overtime being optional to the men at
the Bame rate of pay. The mayor war,
anxious that there should be no possibility of quibbles arising over the
terms of the city contracts.
Aid. Barrow spoke of the clear intention of the council in agreeing upon
the terms of these contracts, that the
men should have some time to attend
to their own private affairs after working
hours. "Those who elected us" said
Aid. Barrow "did so on the understanding that we favored an eight hour
day."
Aid. Hilditch spoke of the excellent
gang of men S. P. MeMordie had to
start with on his contract work. It was a
pleasure to see such an efficient gang
at work on the streets of Prince Rupert.
But the ten hour day dispute had caused
trouble, and these men were no longer
working for the city. Aid. Hilditch
suggested that there must be some
ulterior motive in S. P. Mordie's action
in dismissing such a good gang when
he had plenty of places where he could
put them to work. He thought that the
work of the city should be done by the
best class of men it was possible to get,
and hoped that the mayor would impress upon Mr. MeMordie that it was
the desire of the council that these men
be re-instated.
This opinion roceived the general
accord of the council.
The inquest into the death of Joseph
Beaudoin was resumed before Coroner
McMullin last night, and when all the
evidence was in the jury had little
difficulty in finding a verdict that
deceased came to his death by a bullet
from a* rifle in the hands of Alphonse
Reicher.. Hilton Kearns, of the office
of Williams and Manson, appeared for
the crown and J. R. Beatty was foreman
of the jury.
Sergeant Thomas W. Regan testified
that Reicher came to the police station
on the night of the 22nd and said that
he had accidentally shot his chum, in a
shack on the railway reserve, that the
man was in a bad state and needed
medical attention. Dr. Tremayne was
called upon and a launch was obtained
in which the three proceeded to the
shack about three quarters of a mile
away. There they found the wounded
man in the condition before described.
He was moaning and evidently in great
pain, lying across the bunk with his feet
on the floor.
Reicher and the wounded man began to talk in French when witness
interposed telling Reicher to speak
English if at all, and cautioning him
that what he did say might be used in
evidence against him. Beaudoin mumbled
something to the effect that Reicher was
a d fool and should not have done
that. Reicher said they had always been
friends. They had been drinking two
or three days together and that night
Beaudoin had robbed him of $14.
"We quarrelled over it. I was sitting
on the bed with the gun in my hand
when it went off". After a moment he
added: "Look through that man's
clothes and you will find my $14.
There were two empty whiskey bottles in the shack and one part full.
Witness could not say if the deceased
had been drinking. Reicher smelt of
liquor when he came to the police station
and looked as though he might have
been drinking. The wounded man was
taken to the hospital and Reicher to
the jail. The next morning the latter
handed to witness $14. He did not know
how it came into his possession but had
felt sure the other man had it,
Dr. Tremayne described the nature
of the bullet wound on Beaudoin and
said the man had died from hemorrage
and shock.
David Sandstrom, a bookkeeper employed by Foley, Welch and Stewart,
said deceased had been working for that
firm and on the books there was $277.07
to his credit.
George St. Claire testified to the
identity of the deceased and said he
had known him for several years. He
did not know any of the man's relatives.
These were all the witnesses called
and the jury then retired but in a few
minutes returned and handed to the
coroner a verdict to the effect stated.

USED PEPPER
AS WEAPON
FIREMAN   AND   CHINESE   COOK
ON   PRINCESS  ROYAL
On Last Trip Out of Prince Rupert
Pat Lally and Le Quong Had a
Fierce Mix up, Other Chinamen
Taking Part.
As a result of a clash between Patrick
Lally, a fireman on the Princess Royal
and .he Chinese mess boy, the balance
of the Chinese on board set upon Lally
as the boat was passing Trial Island
inbound says the Vancouver Province.
The white man and the third cook a
selestial named Quong, are now being
held at the police station the former almost blinded by a quantity of cayenne
pepper which, it is alleged, Quong threw
in his face. Both prisoners will be held
until the return of the boat tonight
when they will be arraigned at a special
session of the court on charges of assault.
Lally, who has been on the boat but
for a trip or two, went into the galley, where he had words with the mess
boy who did not know that he belonged to the crew. Lally, it is said, struck
the boy, whereupon several other
Chinamen followed Lally into the
forecastle and set upon him. In the
melee the pepper was thrown. When
the boat arrived at the dock the two
were handed over by the captain to
the police officers and taken to the
police station in the patrol wagon.
At the station Lally, who could
hardly see, declared that Quong was
not the Chinaman who threw the pepper though Quong admitted that he
was the guilty one. But he also claimed that Lally had struck him as he
was in the act of preparing a dish in
which the pepper was a chief ingredient and that in warding off the white
man's blow he struck the latter with
the hand in which a small quantity of
pepper was held. The supply of pepper contained in the boat's larder must
have been materially reduced for Lally
wag covered with the pungent stuff
and a large quantity was scattered
upon the floor of the galley. Lally's
story is that the mess boy swore at
him, whereupon he struck the boy and
the other Celestials thereupon took a
hand in the fray.

GRAHAM COAL
IS EXPLOITED
BIG MERGER NOW APPROACHING
COMPLETION
American Capitali.t. Said to Have
Purcha.ed Coal Land. Valued at
Quarter Million Dollars���British
Capital Alao Intere.ted.
Vancouver, aSept..- 23.���Rumor has
it that a syndicate of American capitalists are consistently acquiring large
areas of British Columbia coal fields,
particularly on Graham Island in the
Queen Charlotte group.
Since the flotation last year by Reginald C. Brown, of the Graham Island
Collieries, Ltd., a British Columbia corporation with which many of the leading business men of Vancouver are actively associated, ,and which acquired
some 20,000 acres of coal lands adjoining
the property of the Western Steel Corporation of aSeattle, considerable activity
has been shown, in other Graham Island
coal propositions.
Numerous outcroppings of bituminous
coal have been found throughout the islands at camp Wilson, Robertson and
Anthracite, also on Masset inlet and
Naden harbor.
The Western Steel Corporation, which
owns about 20,000 acres of coal and timber lands at Camp Wilson, is reported
to be acquiring further large areas of
coal claims for their Irondale plant, including those of a local syndicate on
Masset inlet controlled by Reginald C.
Brown, president of the British Columbia Company, Ltd.
The price at which these lands are to
be acquired is not known, but is reported to be in the neighborhood ofa quarter
of a million.
Interviewed at his office, Mr. Brown
refused to either confirm or deny the report, but admitted that within the last
twenty-four hours a large transaction
has been completed with a strong Vancouver syndicate and that a definite
offer had been received from an American corporation to purchase the entire holding. It is believed that a consolidation of all the Graham Island pro-
erties held under Canadian control will
shortly be affected through a syndicate
of   London    capitalists.
SOLD THEIR HAY WELL
Settler,  in   Bulkley Valley Getting
Hundred Dollar, a Ton
Many settlers are going into the
Bulkley valley and the land along the
line of the proposed railroad is being
well taken up. This year the settlers
have earned much with their produce
'from the railroad builders. Below
Aldermere farmers have sold their hay
for one hundred dollars a ton to the
contractors and have not had to haul
it from their ground, the buyers sending
teams for it.
BUYS  COAL  LAND
Grand Trunk Pacific Make. Purchaae
Near  Round   Lake
Buyers believed to represent the
Grand Trunk Pacific Company recently bought up a big tract of land near
the coal lands being prospected in the
Bulkley close to Round Lake, and the
local report is that it is the intention
to establish a townsite there. Two
diamond drills are in operation boring
on the coal lands, which are said to cover
a large area.

HOW WE WERE KNOCKED OUT
A malicious and unhappy element which is loose in the city has endeavored
upon one or two occasions recently to throw discredit upon this paper by stating
that it was recently "knocked out" by the local union. The Optimist does not
care to tell of its petty annoyances to the public but the knock out statement
needs a jolt to straighten it up.
The Optimist ceased to be what is known as a label shop for a period recently
because the local union did not make good their first agreement. A boycott was
attempted with the result that the Optimist business increased. Then an organizer
was sent for and he discovered that the whole difficulty was that the Optimist plant
was too modern for local union understanding. He admitted to the manager of
the Optimist that President Lynch of the I. T. U. said Prince Rupert must be
secured and as the Optimist is the biggest shop in the North it was necessary to
get this paper in. In fact there was nothing to prevent the Optimist being recognized
as a union shop excepting the adjustment of trifling details to meet the conditions
of the modern machinery. At the solicitation of the organizer an agreement was
entered into, the details of which were dictated by the manager of the Optimist,
and if the Optimist vilifier saw it he would behold one clause which he has never
had the honesty of purpose to stand out for. It might be added, although it is
pretty generally known already, that the workmanship of the. Optimist shop and
its pay roll will out-class any competitor.
The city council's position respecting the labor dispute with Contractor S. P.
MeMordie is one of solicitation and not one of right. As pointed out in the Optimist
before the trouble occurred, the council did not know where they were at when they
made the contract. Unfortunately for the workmen they had too much confidence
in the council and quit their job without having consulted their employer. The
natural result is that Mr. MeMordie let them out. The laborers put their trust
in princes and the princes could not make good.
With tax slips at one and one half per cent, telephone rentals and equi-
nioctial storms all falling due together the average property owner will not even
give the aldermen a pleasant look.
What will it benefit the small boy if we have a dozen regiments of boy scouts
and a score of ball clubs if we have no play ground. Why not use a little of that
million at six per cent, arranged for by Aid. Pattullo (Second Avenue) to make the
boys a play ground. The best way to get the hoodlum element off the streets is
to give them somewhere to go.

on her way down the river from Whitehorse to Dawson, had been wrecked,
but at Wrangel he could obtain no con-
of the rumor.

"There is great interest being taken
in the coal area up the river and in
the interior," said W. W. Leach, of the
Dominion geological survey, to the
Optimist yesterday. "I have been up
in that district all summer giving special
attention to the coal deposits for the
purpose of preparing a report. A' number of companies are already developing their claims on Morice River. One
company had two drills at work all
summer. The Grand Trunk had one
foil at work in the Telkwa district and
the Grand Trunk Coal Co., which is
not affiliated with the railway in any
Jay, are working in the Bulkley valley.
The Ashton Coal Co., adjoining are also
driving a cross cut tunnel to cut the
Mm, but have not yet reached it.
"There is no question about the coal
up in that district. It is of good quality

HELGERSON BROS.'   NEW OFFICE
Firm Installed in New Premise* on
O. M. Helgerson'* Return to City
O. M. Helgerson returned yesterday
to Prince Rupert after his visit to aSeattle
and Vancouver. Mr. Helgerson has
been attending to a matter of a land deal
on a considerable scale while in the
south. He has also been investigating
the townsite of Port Mann with a view
to business there when the Canadian
Northern company opens the sale of
the site next year.
On his ��tum to Prince Rupert Mr.
Helgerson found the firm installed in
the new premises in the Helgerson
Block. While the arrangement of the
office furnishings and some details of
the residential portion of the premises
are not yet.quite completed, the office
and rooms occupied by the Helgerson
brothers are most pleasant and comfortable.
The rooms are designed compactly
and conveniently for the conduct of
business, ample accommodation being
provided for the efficient working of the
office department of the real estate
business.
The furnishings of both office and
residental rooms are tastefully selected,
and of substantial quality and design.
While the office is kept strictly businesslike in appearance with safe, desks, and
typewriter adding to the air of efficiency,
a glimpse is allowed of the sitting room
behind which with its rich carpeting,
cosy arm chairs and atmosphere of
comfort blends pleasantly with the well-
equipped office apartment. Behind and
upstairs, are compact and convenient
sleeping and toilet apartments, and
altogether the brothers Helgerson have
business premises to be proud of.
Have Considered Their Petition
Regarding the petition for the grading
of Sixth avenue from Fulton street to
Summit avenue the petitioners Wm. T.
Robinson and seven others have notified the city council that they desfre
to have this work done provided that it
can be paid for on a twenty year basis.
The street, works and property committee will consider the matter.
BOY SCOUT AND
HIS FOP GUN
IS THE REDOUBTABLE ALDERMAN AFRAID?
Question Regarding Council'* Recognition of Boy Scout Official
Body Give* Rise to a Cheerful
Little Ripple.
An amusing picture was suggested by
some remarks passed at the city council
last night over the question of the
council's recognition of the official
body selected to head the Boy Scout
movement in the city. The question was
brought up by Aid. Mobley who said
that having heard that it was being
proposed that the council should recognize officially the appointment of
certain trustees and leaders of the boy
scout movement, he thought it advisable that the promoters of this movement should first agree among themselves regarding the officials they were
to appoint before approaching the council
Aid. Barrow expresed himself ready
to second this.
At this Aid. Hilditch arose in some
perturbation "I am going to vote against
any motion to approve of the boy scout
movement" he said. "If these boys are
the same as the ones I see in all directions
now on the streets around with pop? guns
and pistold and firing peas and other
projectiles recklessly at windows and
passers by, I think that as police commissioner Aid. Mobley should look into
this matter."
The words spoken in quite a tone of
anxiety and concern called up to the
aldermen an amusing picture of Aid.
of Aid. Hilditch menaced by a very
small boy with a large pistol, and a
ripple of amusement ran round the
council board.
Aid. Mobley explained that as he
understood it the boy scout movement
was the very thing to correct and turn
to better channels the mischevious
and war like tendencies of the small boy.
The movement was not to encourage
small boys to carry about 22 calibre
guns in their hip pockets to be peril
the citizen and Aid. Hilditch. But
Aid. Mobley admitted in support of
Aid. Hilditch that there was certainly
in the city at present a gang of boy
hoodlums who had among other things
recently fired a gasoline tank in a
congested part of the city, and destroyed
a launch on Hays Creek. As police
commissioner Ald..Mobley had instructed
the police to get on the track of these
mischevious boys.
Aid. Barrow said that he did not
at all associate the boy scouts with the
boys who with their pistols and guns
had evidently scared Aid. Hilditch.
He understood that the boy scout
movement was a movement designed to
divert the high spir ts of boys into safe
channels and keep them out of the
reformatory.
The Mayor said that he had heard
that an article had appeared in the press
stating that he was not in favor of the
boy scout movement. This was not so.
He agreed with Aid. Mobley that
before the city council could officially
recognize the official body of the boy
scout trustees and leaders, they' must
agree among themselves regarding their
chosen representatives. The council
could not decide between two alternative bodies put forward by different
parties of advocates.
BIG  RAILWAY  FUTURE
St   John   Expect*   to   be   Terminus
Of Grand Trunk Pacific
St. John, N. B. Sept. 15.���Will
St. John soon be an Atlantic terminus of three transcontinental railways?
The Canadian Pacific is there, the
Grand Trunk Pacific has purchased
an extensive site for its terminals,
and the Canadian Northern is expected to be the third on the list. Hon.
William Pugsley, minister of public
works, told the people of St. John
the other day that he had talked with
Mackenzie and Mann and they had
expressed a desire to secure an outlet
at this port.
Mr. Pugsley observed that the desire
of these gentlemen to secure the Intercolonial Railway would probably not
commend itself to the people of Canada,
but added that he believed the Federal and Provincial governments could
get their heads together and formulate
a plan whereby the Canadian Northern
could be brought to this city. This
plan would have to do with the proposed
new railway down the St. John River
Valley, for which the Provincial Government is now about completing the surveys
and concerning whose western connections nothing has as yet been developed.
PLANS READY
FOR SECTION ONE
CITY   ENGINEER'S   REPORT   TO
CITY COUNCIL PRESENTED
More Dump Than Fill Expected According to Engineer's Calculation
Report Goe* to Committee For
Consideration.
Salvation  Army   Will   Be   Buay
S. A. Captain Kerr is in the city again
having arrived from Port Essington
yesterday. He will remain in Prince
Rupert assisting Ensign Johnstone during
the initial stages of the army's work
in the city. Already Ensign Johnstone
feels that his work here has begun none
too soon, and realizes that there will be
abundance of opportunity for the
Salvation Army effort here.
The following is the report of the city
engineer regarding the grading etc., of
Section one. At the city council meeting yesterday evening the report was
presented and referred to the streets,
works and property committee:-
Prince Rupert, B. C.
Sept. 26, 1910.
To The Mayor and Aldermen
of the City of Prince Rupert.
Gentlemen,���I submit herewith plans
and specificatios for the grading of the
roadways on Section  1.
The total quantities show a large
excess of excavation over embankment,
some 56000 cubic yards. A portion of
this surplus may be utilized in widening
the top of the embankments if retaining
walls be built, the greater part, however,
should be provided for by increasing
the quantity of embankments by altering grades. There is no other means
by which it can be provided for at a
reasonable cost. By raising the grade
six feet at the corner of Eighth street
and Third avenue, an increase of over
19000 cubic yards would be made in
the total amount of embankments, and
the damages to private property would
be practically nil. The same is true
for a certain extent at th intersection
of Second avenue and Third avenue
with First street.
I would respectfully suggest that
the parties interested be allowed to reconsider the possibility of changing
these grades, and that, in the meantime,
the work be proceeded with. The change
in grade might easily be made at any
time in the next month or so. as the
specifications provide for changes of
this character.
Yours respectfully,
WM. MAHON DAVIS
City Engineer.
Aid. Barrow moved that the report
be referred to the streets, works and
property committee.
Aid. Hilditch said that he thought the
city engineer had not allowed very much
for the compression of muskeg when
dumped along with rock in the fill.
This allowance if made would materially
reduce the surplus of excavated material
over fill space available.
Aid. Barrow's motion was carried. th;e  prince  kupert   optimist

Sole Agents for
Seattle, Sept. 23.���Information received here from Skagway shows that
the robbers who substituted lead for
$57,1500 worth of gold bars in a shipment that arrived here on the Humboldt two weeks ago, at the same time
took a mail bag containing $27,500
worth of presious metal���making a
total theft of $85,000 worth of bullion.
The Skagway authorities are positive in their belief that the robbery
occurred north of Whitehorse, at
which point it and the strong boxes
arrived Friday, Sept. 2. It was due
to gross carelessness of Canadian mail
clerks that the loss of the treasure was
not discovered at that time, it is stated.
When the mail consignment was
transferred from the Yukon River
steamer Tanana that brought it up from
Dawson at Whitehorse it was noticed
that the shipment checked one pouch
short, and the mail official in charge,
instead of suspecting something wrong,
attributed the discrepancy to a blunder
in checking and allowed the shipment
to go forward.
While, so far as has been made public at Skagway, officials of that part
of Alaska have no positive clues to
the robbery, the evidence they had obtained up to a few days ago was convincing that the two thefts had been
committed by the same person or persons and at the same time.
Detectives employed by the Pinker-
ton agency within the past twenty-
four hours have covered practically
every point in Alaska through which
traffic flows to the states and out of
which may come one or more of the
robbers.

W. W. Leach of Ottawa, who is connected with the geological survey, was
in Prince Rupert yesterday and left
last night for the south on his way to
Ottawa where he will report on his
past season's work up the Skeena river
and in the interior. To the Optimist
Mr.. Leach stated that he "made an
observation trip over Ninemile mountain
and visited the Silver Cup mine and
several of the others. Ninemile mountain
he said is rich in silver and lead, and
Silver Cup is the most promising of them
all There has been much more development work done on the Silver Cup than
on any other mine up the river and the
different tunnells prove the continuity
of the ore body. Silver Cup looks very
very well and if fulfilling every expectation of the owners."
It will be remembered that Silver Cup
mine will make its first shipment of
ore this fall. In fact it is being packed
down to the river at Hazelton now.
The assays made from time to time have
shown this ore to be worth on an average
of $100 per ton, which is very high, and
then to have Mr. Leach of the Dominion
geological survey, give a favorable
opinion on it, should satisfy everyone
that Silver Cup is one of the best investments of today. The company have
placed in the hands of J. R. Talpey Co.,
100,000 shares of their stock to dispose
of. At the present time over half that
amount has been taken up and the remainder is going rapidly. Those who
wish to get some of the stock will make

LAKELSE VALLEY FRUITS
Three Rancher* Who Are Enthueiae-
tlc About Fruit Growing
William McPhee, for some time in
charge of the Lakelse salmon hatchery,
D. D. McDougall, who has been working
on a government survey and K. Olsen,
rancher, are a party from Lakelse Valley
in town for a few days and are enthusiastic in regard to the fruit growing possibilities of the land in that valley.
Olsen, who has been working on the
government road from Little Canyon
to Breckenridge Landing, says this
road, which is to cost $12,000, is well
under way and will shortly be completed.
He says this has been an immense
season for strawberries and in fact for
apples and plums also.
All the party are agreed that it is the
finest land to be found anywhere. They
claim it is the only really fine fruit land,
that to be found on both sides of the
Skeena from Kitsumkalum and Lakelse
up to Hazelton, along the whole course
of the railway, and when the latter ia
completed it will be this land which
will have to furnish all the fruit between
Prince Rupert and Edmonton.
They also spoke of the ease with which
the land was cleared, saying the trees
were all of marketable lumber that,
would more than pay for the clearing
and that all the roots were so near the
surface they could be snagged out with
a team. They are all well satisfied with
their holdings and hope to do a lot of
clearing next spring.

In our [opinion SILVER CUP represents
more real intrinsic value and more possible avenues of large and quick returns
than'fany stock offered in British Columbia today.
SILVER CUP is acknowledged the biggest mining proposition in Northern B. C.
The property is ideal from every point of
profitable production. It has all the requirements for safety as well as speculative possibilities. We recommend its purchase without delay.
