ICommittee To Report On Building
Inspector���No Employment Bureau-Aldermen Will Scrap Over
the Tax System.
I Alter the council disposed of a couple
[petitions from the labouring men and
Kided upon the Canadian Bank of
'ommerce as the city's banking house,
aldermen wandered off into the
scussion of several matters that have
obe disposed of shortly. They were
niting for the city solicitor to arrive
Eider to take up the by-laws that are
Jrady in hand. Among the subjects
1 were that of a building in-
(jtctor and a joint committee of the
ire and Water, and the Streets and
roperty will report on one.    Another
was the necessity some day of
\ wharf at Seal Cove.   But the really
knotty question at the present time, and
|he one which is uppermost in the minds
il some of the aldermen is the system of
luxation.   Will it be on the frontage
pttem all through, or will the grading
! done out of the general funds and
improvements   allowed   to   look
liter themselves?     The grading of the
: appears to be the first and most
*ntial and that work will undoubtedly
le started first.     But there will be a
|crap before the tax system is settled.
the members were present and
fhe minutes of the last meeting were
ead and adopted.
No Employment  Bureau.
A petition was  received  from  the
I^abour Unions asking that no license
ie granted to individual or corporation
or the employment of labor, but that
Ity conduct their own employment b-
i and direct the men to the labour
pons,
A petition was received from a number
1 working men asking that the employment bureau   conducted   by   a   Mr.
ffavitt be stopped.
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Mobley moved
lhat the petitions be handed to a proper
pimitteo with instructions to make a
through investigation  and  report  to
Inp council -carried.
A number of labour men were present j
N one of their number suggested that

They suggested that a fee be charged

���      ;" take Up the appointment of a
ling inspector.  He said  he  would
I-       sw a !���Hiding inspector than a
ounce of
to make application and file a plan of
his building. That would be of great
assistance   to   the   building   inspector.
Aid. Mobley asked if a building inspector would superintend the construction alone or would he have other
jobs coupled with it.
Aid. Hilditch thought that for a year
or two that official could also act as
sanitary inspector.
The Mayor stated that there was a
practice here of substituting cheap
sheet iron pipe for galvanized veanxt
A building inspector should handle the
duties of a plumbing inspector and he
would soon spot such deficiencies as
outlined above.
Aid. Pattullo moved that applications
for building inspector be called for and
that his duties be whatever the council
assign to him.
Aid. Hilditch suggested that this
matter be referred to the Streets an
Property committee and reported upon
at next meeting.
Aid. Pattullo said that the Fire and
Water committee should   report on it.
The Mayor settled the matter by
suggesting that the Fire and Water, and
Street  and Property committees report.
Aid. Lynch moved that the two named
committees call for applications and
report to the council.
Another Wharf.
Aid. Hilditch brought up the question
again of the electric light plant. He
said that on account of the steep grade
the city would be put to great expense
in hauling timber. In the next few years
the city will buy millions of feet of
timber for plank roads and that all has
to be hauled up that grade. He suggested
that the city buid a wharf at Seal Cove.
The suggestion met with general
approval.     ,
Aid. Hilditch then gave his reasons
for making the suggestion. He said
that the population of the city would
grow east. It cannot grow west. There
was not room for more than 3,000
people east of the government buildings.
Aid. Lynch stated ttiat Aid. Hilditch had his map upside down. There
are 3000 lots west of Eleventh street
still   unsold.
Tax System.
Aid. Pattullo said he did not wish to
bring up a big question now, but before
this city can do anything whatever they
would have to settle upon the system
of doing this work, whether by frontage
tax or the general basis. He was not
committed to the frontage tax. He was
free to act.
Aid. Hilditch thought that the council
should settle this tax system at once.
It is all important to the city and no
work can be done until it is settled.
Aid Mobley believed we were getting
the wagon in front of the horse in many
cases. He thught the most important
thing at this time was to get the bylaws passed. At present the officials
being appointed have absolutely no
authority. Let them get the by-laws
passed first and then take up these
other matters.
The city solicitor arrived at this
point and the council went into
committee of the whole to discuss
by-laws.

ALDERMEN PAY VISIT TO WATER SUPPLY
THEY TRAMPED TO THE DAMS ON
HAYS CREEK.
To-morrow Five Aldermen Go To
Woodworth Lake To Gain Information and To Prepare A
Report For The Council.
ALEXIA BIANCO INQUEST
TWO
WITNESSES EXAMINED
GREAT LENGTH.
AT
John Mosca Tells Of Discovery Of
The Body and Dr. Tremayne
of Nature of Injuries Causing
Death.
The inquest.into the death of Alexia
Bianco, who is believed to have shot
herself on Monday evenirfg at her home
on Third avenue, was continued laSt
night before Coroner T. McMullin.
W. E. Fisher, crown prosecutor, conducted the enquiry and Messrs. Williams
& Manson appeared to watch the proceedings on behalf of Abele Cavallini,
whose intimacy with the woman is
called into question. There were only
two witnesses heard last night, the man
who found the body and Dr. Tremayne,
who was immediately called in after the
deed was discovered. The examination
of these two occupied the coroner's
court until ten o'clock, when Mr. Fisher
asked for an adjournment. The coroner
said to-day was a holiday and suggested
an adjournment until Monday evening.
Mr. Fisher intimated that he would not
be able to get through in one evening
and asked why not meet at two o'clock
on Monday afternoon and sit right
through the evening to, if possible,
finish it.    This course was agreed to.
John Mosca, the first witness called,
said he worked in the building where
the occurrence took place and was the
first to find the body of the woman.
He said, through A. Astori, acting as
interpreter,   that   the   deceased,
The Fire and Water committee did
not get a report prepared for last night's
meeting of the council on their trip to
the Hays Creek dam. It was late when
they got back. Mayor Stork Aid. F. H.
Mobley and Aid. T. D. Pattullo visited the source of the city's water supply
which is at the dam on the creek. There
are three dams holding something like
300,000 gallons of water, the largest of
which will hold 170,000 gallons and
the other two about 65,000 gallons each.
All of them are well constructed and
are performing their duty satisfactorily.
The fall of the three dams is in the neighborhood of 300 feet and furnishes a
splendid pressure on the mains.
The aldermen put on high rubber
boots and tramped up the mountain
side, enjoying the exercise and the
scenery as they went along. They also
got acquainted with that part of the city
and can discuss the water question more
intelligently. On their return trip they
followed the pipe line and visited Acropolis   hill   and  sized   up  the  reservoir.
It was a big afternoon's work but the
aldermen feel well repaid.
Going to the Lakes.
Yesterday the Fire and Water committee visited the present source of the
water supply. In the morning, five of
them, with Engineer Agnew, will take
a launch and canoes and visit the lakes
from which it is proposed to get the
permanent supply of water. The launch
will take them to the end of Kaien
Island where they will have to land and
portage their canoes about half a mile
across to Shawatlans lake. That lake
is about one mile across and then the
city fathers will climb two miles up
the mountain to Woodworth lake.
That is the proposed source of supply for
Prince Rupert, and if the city succeeds
in getting it, about which there is very
little doubt, the city will have the best
water supply in the world.. The lake
is situated right up in the mountains
and the water is as clear and pure as
crystal. There is a fall between the lake
and the city of 500 feet or over and thus
the water will be brought in by gravitation. It is true that the first cost of
laying the pipe will be considerable,
but there is no pumping station to maintain or to get out of order and the pipes
do not have to be put underground to
protect them from frost. The system,
therefore, will be a very economical
one and water will be cheap.

SANITATION OF STEWART.
Victoria, May 28.���At to-day's meeting of the provincial executive a decision was reached to proceed with imperative sanitary requirements at Stewart. Dr. Bapty of the department of

by him on the proceeding evening.
She went out about eleven o'clock
and returned a few minutes after twelve.
When she returned he asked her if she
needed a lamp and she answered in the
negative and showed she had a candle.
The next morning he called the woman
and she did not respond. After calling
twice he secured a ladder a,nd look
through her room window. He saw her
reclining on the bed.
Witness than described his discovery
that the woman was dead and the position of the body. There was leaning
against her a double barrelled shot
gun with a can opener attached to the
trigger. On the left of the neck was a
gaping wound. The room was not disarranged. He said several men were
sleeping in the building that night,
among them a man named Bigheo,
and a brother of Abele Cavallini. He
did not know if they had heard anything
unusual during the night. He himself
had been awakened by a rumbling sound,
but had thought it was the scavengers
and had gone to sleep again.
He knew Frank Martin and Abele
Cavallini. They were much together
and came to the place often. He did not
know what Cavallini did for a living
and had   never known him to work i.t

VERDICT OF ACQUITTAL IN COAL
CREEK CASE.
Prisoners    at    Once    Released    on
Application of Their
Counsel.
The City Will Endeavour to Secure
400   instead   of   200   Feet.
Fernie, May 30.���The celebrated
Coal Creek holdup case was concluded
Saturday afternoon when the jury
brought in a verdict of not guilty at
4 o'clock. W. A. Macdonald, K.C., the
crown prosecutor, addressed the jury
at 10 o'clock and had finished when
the court was adjourned shortly before   1   o'clock.
The judge's charge to the jury commenced at 2 o'clock and lasted half
an hour, when the jury retired. They
were out about an hour when they
brought in the above verdict. There
was a clapping of hands when the
verdict was announced, which was
quickly suppressed by the court officials.
The prisoners were at once released
on the application of their counsel,
W. R. Ross, K. C, and received the
congratulations of their friends. The
two Belangers who turned King's evidence will probably come up for sentence today.
Engineer Clements presented a blue
print of the proposed site for the city's
electric light plant and wharf on the
water front. He pointed out- the difficulties that may be experienced in
securing an approach suitable for heavy
traffic on account of a couple of overhead bridges to be constructed by the
G. T. P. The aldermen went into that
phase of the matter and an effort w 111
be made to overcome the obstacles.
The engineer also drew attention to
the fact that the city had only 200 feet
frontage.and they might just as well
get 400 feet as it will be needed and wil
be more easily secured now than later.
The aldermen will also take this matter
up and will probably visit the proposed
site with the enginher. Engineer
Clements is to prepare a sketch for
400 feet at once.

Refuses to Take Oath.
Ottawa, May 28. ��� Considerable
comment has been caused in the civil
service by the refusal of an officer of
one of the departments to take the oath
of allegiance to King George V. It
seems that when the other employees
presented themselves this one abstained
from going to the room where the
clerk of the privy council was administering the oath. The remedy will be in
his salary being stopped by the auditor-
general. The reason assigned is that
the clerk took the stand that the oath
is similar to the coronation oath in its
reference to Roman Catholics, which
is not at all the case.
Geo. B. Howard Co.
"Father and the Boys" will be the
opening comedy of the Howard Company
Monday night. Briefly the story tells
of the Morewoods whi have a brokerage
office in New York which by the
way of the tastes of the sons is half a
tea parlor and half a gymnasium.
Morewood pater wants his sons to settle
down and marry the girls of his choice.
They want him to "settle up", occassi-
only for them and to enter a little more
actively into the social arena. On the
advice of the family lawyer, and with the
assistance of a breezy Western girl, he
does so, to the astonishment and consternation of nearly every one of them.
All  ends  happily.
Gifted with a face from whose expression springs the very spirit of drollery,
and a manner of saying witty and humorous things that makes them take on a
double amount of fun for his hearers, it
is little wonder that Mr. Howard has
achieved the satisfactory reputation
which he now enjoys.

New York, May 23.���Oliver Spitzer, a j
man whose conscience hurt him, came
back to New York today like a spectre
from the grave and with a pardon from |
the president in his pocket gave testimony at the trial of Chas. R. Heike,
secretary - treasurer of the American
Sugar Refining company, who, with
five subordinates, is charged with com-
spiracy to defraud the government in
underweight of sugar imports. Spitzer,
as superintendent of the company's
Williamsburg (Brooklyn) docks, got
two years for his participation in the
frauds, but he was quietly pardoned by
the president last Thursday after sev-
ving only three months and having made
full confession. From now on he will
aid the government in its attempt to
convict his former assbciates.
Sptizer's story on the stand today
did not directly connect Heike with
frauds, but his confession resulted
in one new arrest tonight. James O.
Brezezinski, formerly an employee of
the treasury department and now a
private detective, was locked in the
Tombs charged with perjury. Spitzer
confessed that he attempted to bribe
Brezezinski to conceal the frauds and
the latter is alleged to have denied this
before a federal grand jury.
Spitzer told an amazing story on the
stand today under direct examination
and hurried from the court to the federal grand jury room. This led to the
rumor that his full confession would
result in another batch of indictments.
He was not cross-examined because of
the peculiar situation created by his
sudden appearance as a government
witness. Two of the defence's lawyers
had previously appeared for Spitzer
when he was defendant and for ethical reasons could not now examine
him. The court ruled that they must
agree on some one to examine him on
Wednesday.
No Promise of Pardon.
No promise of pardon brought about
Spitzer's confession, say the federal
authorities. His conscience merely hurt
him, but realizing the importance of his
testimony and the legal obstacles likely
to bar it were he a convict action was
taken to restore him to citizenship.
When convicted last February Spitzer
declared the sugar trust had made him
the scapegoat. "It hounded and ruined
me after I had served faithfully for
twenty-nine years," he said then. Today he told how, for years, he had assisted in the alleged frauds.

mssion of several matters that have
be disposed of shortly.   They were
iting for the city solicitor to arrive
order to take up the by-laws that are
ady in hand.   Among the subjects
1 were that of a building in-
or and a joint committee of the
and Water, and the Streets and
jpetty will report on one.    Another
atter was the necessity some day of
wharf at Seal Cove.   But the really
lOtty question at the present time, and
one which is uppermost in the minds
if some of the aldermen is the system of
;ation.    Will it be on the frontage
IBtem all through, or will the grading
done out of the general funds and
|ther improvements   allowed   to   look
iter themselves?     The grading of the
appears to be the first and most
intlal and that work will undoubtedly
ie started first.     But there will be a
pap before the tax system is settled.
Ml the members were present and
'he minutes of the last meeting were
'ad and adopted.
No Employment Bureau.
A petition was received from the
abour Unions asking that no license
��granted to individual or corporation
the employment of labor, but that
Sty conduct their own employment b-
|eau and direct the men to the labour
tnions.
A petition was received from a number
working men asking that the employee bureau conducted by a Mr.
ewitt be stopped.
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Mobley moved
"at the petitions be handed to a proper
"mmittee with instructions to make a
rorough investigation and report to
��e council-carried.
A number of labour men were present
��d one of their number suggested that

lopt Jon SUggeated that the city

rsl tWng a builder should do was
to make application and file a plan of
his building. That would be of great
assistance   to   the   building   inspector.
Aid. Mobley asked if a building inspector would superintend the construction alone or would he have other
jobs coupled with it.
Aid. Hilditch thought that for a year
or two that official could also act as
sanitary inspector.
The Mayor stated that there was a
practice here of substituting cheap
sheet iron pipe for galvanized veanxt
A building inspector should handle the
duties of a plumbing inspector and he
would soon spot such deficiencies as
outlined above.
Aid. Pattullo moved that applications
for building inspector be called for and
that his duties be whatever the council
assign to him.
Aid. Hilditch suggested that this
matter be referred to the Streets an
Property committee and reported upon
at next meeting.
Aid. Pattullo said that the Fire and
Water committee should   report on it.
The Mayor settled the matter by
suggesting that the Fire and Water, and
Street  and Property committees report.
Aid. Lynch moved that the two named
committees call for applications and
report to the council.
Another Wharf.
Aid. Hilditch brought up the question
again of the electric light plant. He
said that on account of the steep grade
the city would be put to great expense
in hauling timber. In the next few j(ears
the city will buy millions of feet of
timber for plank roads and that all has
to be hauled up that grade. He suggested
that the city buid a wharf at Seal Cove.
The suggestion met with general
approval.
Aid. Hilditch then gave his reasons
for making the suggestion. He said
that the population of the city would
grow east. It cannot grow west. There
was not room for more than 3,000
people east of the government buildings.
Aid. Lynch stated that Aid. Hilditch had his map upside down. There
are 3000 lots west of Eleventh street
still   unsold.
Tax System.
Aid. Pattullo said he did not wish to
bring up a bis question now, but before
this city can do anything whatever they
would have to settle upon the system
of doing this work, whether by frontage
tax or the general basis. He was not
committed to the frontage tax. He was
free to act.
Aid. Hilditch thought that the council
should settle this tax system at once.
It is all important to the city and no
work can be done until it is settled.
Aid Mobley believed we were getting
the wagon in front of the horse in many
cases. He thught the most important
thing at this time was to get the bylaws passed. At present the officials
being appointed have absolutely no
authority. Let them get the by-laws
passed first and then take up these
other matters.
The city solicitor arrived at this
point and the council went into
committee of the whole to discuss
by-laws.
SANITATION OF STEWART.
Victoria, May 28.���At to-day's meeting of the provincial executive a decision was reached to proceed with imperative sanitary requirements at Stewart. Dr. Bapty of the department of
public health is being despatched there

expert now on the ground.

ALEXIA BIANCO INQUEST
TWO  WITNESSES EXAMINED  AT
GREAT LENGTH.
John Mosca Tells Of Discovery Of
The Body and Dr. Tremayne
of Nature of Injuries Causing
Death <
The inquest.into the death of Alexia
Bianco, who is believed to have shot
herself on Monday evenirfg at her home
on Third avenue, was continued larit
night before Coroner T. McMullin.
W. E. Fisher, crown prosecutor, conducted the enquiry and Messrs. Williams
& Manson appeared to watch the proceedings on behalf of Abele Cavallini,
whose intimacy with the woman is
called into question. There were only
two witnesses heard last night, the man
who found the body and Dr. Tremayne,
who was immediately called in after the
deed was discovered. The examination
of these two occupied the coroner's
court until ten o'clock, when Mr. Fisher
asked for an adjournment. The coroner
said to-day was a holiday and suggested
an adjournment until Monday evening.
Mr. Fisher intimated that he would not
be able to get through in one evening
and asked why not meet at two o'clock
on Monday afternoon and sit right
through the evening to, if possible,
finish it.    This course was agreed to.
John Mosca, the first witness called,
said he worked in the building where
the occurrence took place and was the
first to find the body of the woman.
He said, through A. Astori, acting as
interpreter, that the deceased, who
lived on the premises, was last seen alive
by him on the preceeding evening.
She went out about eleven o'clock
and returned a few minutes after twelve.
When she returned he asked her if she
needed a lamp and she answered in the
negative and showed she had a candle.
The next morning he called the woman
and she did not respond. After calling
twice he secured a ladder a,nd look
through her room window. He saw her
reclining on the bed.
Witness than described his discovery
that the woman was dead and the pos>
tion of the body. There was leaning
against her a double barrelled shot
gun with a can opener attached to the
trigger. On the left of the neck was a
gaping wound. The room was not disarranged. He said several men were
sleeping in the building that night,
among them a man named Bigheo,
and a brother of Abele Cavallini. He
did not know if they had heard anything
unusual during the night. He himself
had been awakened by a rumbling sound,
but had thought it was the scavengers
and had gone to sleep again.
He knew Frank Martin and Abele
Cavallini. They were much together
and came to the place often. He did not
know what Cavallini did for a living
and had   never known him to work i.t
The Fire and Water committee did
not get a report prepared for last night's
meeting of the council on their trip to
the Hays Creek dam. It was late when
they got back. Mayor Stork Aid. F. H.
Mobley and Aid. T. D. Pattullo visited the source of the city's water supply
which is at the dam on the creek. There
are three dams holding something like
300,000 gallons of water, the largest of
which will hold 170,000 gallons and
the other two about 65,000 gallons each.
All of them are well constructed and
are performing their duty satisfactorily.
The fall of the three dams is in the neighborhood of 300 feet and furnishes a
splendid pressure on the mains.
The aldermen put on high rubber
boots and tramped up the mountain
side, enjoying the exercise and the
scenery as they went along. They also
got acquainted with that part of the city
and can discuss the water question more
intelligently. On their return trip they
followed the pipe line and visited Acropolis   hill   and  sized   up   the  reservoir.
It was a big afternoon's work but the
aldermen feel well repaid.
Going to the Lakes.
Yesterday the Fire and Water committee visited the present source of the
water supply. In the morning, five of
them, with Engineer Agnew, will take
a launch and canoes and visit the lakes
from which it is proposed to get the
permanent supply of water. The launch
will take them to the end of Kaien
Island where they will have to land and
portage their canoes about half a mile
across to Shawatlans lake. That lake
is about one mile across and then the
city fathers will climb two miles up
the mountain to Woodworth lake.
That is the proposed source of supply for
Prince Rupert, and if the city succeeds
in getting it, about which there is very
little doubt, the city will have the best
water supply in the world.. The lake
is situated right up in the mountains
and the water is as clear and pure as
crystal. There is a fall between the lake
and the city of 500 feet or over and thus
the water will be brought in by gravitation. It is true that the first cost of
laying the pipe will be considerable,
but there is no pumping station to maintain or to get out of order and the pipes
do not have to be put underground to
protect them from frost. The system,
therefore, will be a very economical
one and water will be cheap.

IN ON GROUND FLOOR.
Frank  Hanley Bonds Six Claimson
Portland    Canal.
Frank Hanley, old time telegraph and
mining operator of Dawson, for recent
years manager of the Irving hotel of
Vancouver, came up on the Princess
Beatrice eleven days ago on his way
to Stewart to "get in on the ground
floor". It was expected that Frank's
investment would be in the hostelry
line, but he returned last night on the
St. Denis enthusiastic in regard to six
claims that he had been lucky enough
to obtain a bond on. "The hotel propos-
tion looked good enough to me," he
said last night, "until I tumbled across
something much better."
Frank then produced a sack of rock
and started to talk of each individual
piece and the values it was believed to
represent. It is a highly mineralized
quartz of the same general character
as the lead the Portland Mining company is now developing and which has
been assaying so high. The group of
six claims he has secured are situated
six miles from Stewart, directly opposite
to the Portland mines and about a mile
below the International group. The
samples he carries are mere croppings
and as is the case with all the Portland
Canal mines, there is a general confidence
that the rock will improve and the values
increase with depth.
Mr. Hanley is associated with Vancouver and Chicago capitalists in his
venture. He says he left the owners of
the property going ahead opening up
the claims and as soon as he reaches
Vancouver a competent mining engineer
will be sent up to expert the property.
Upon his report a company will be formed
to develop and operate the property,
which Frank is confident wili prove to
be one of the best in the Portland
Canal country.
Old timers from Yukon with quartz
experience are favourably impressed
with Frank's samples, and talk of grubstaking two or three parties from here
to go to Stewart and try to get something
just as good.

gnt the opinion of the outsider, who has
no object in either praising or blaming
unduly, and who tells an unwelcome
truth in the same calm, philosophic tone
in which he expresses approval of
Britain's achievements. On the whole
the verdict is a flatfrir.g one. The
author thinks that the government of
India has gone to f:;r in the direction
of "veneering" certain classes of Orientals with a thin coating of western education. He is especially disposed to
criticize the system of examinations for
entry into the public service that has
filled the higher posts open to natives

men���while few of the higher class
Mohammedans, who have far more of
the "morale" necessary for high office
than the Hindus, are quite outdistanced

M. Chailley touches the root of India's  unprogressiveness  when  he says:
"If India possessed a more fertile
soil, and were better endowed with mineral wealth, she would still languish
in poverty if the natives continued to
work with the same apathetic indifference as at present. "Slackness" is the
worst curse of the country. At first

Veteran    Scrip    Going    Up.
Last week six South African land
warrants sold on the Winnipeg Stock
exchange at from $750 to $775 each,
which is an advance of from ten to fifteen dollars over the quotations of last
week. To date there have been 6,900
warrants issued, and of these there are
still left on the market 2,433, the balance having been registered and used.
With the present ratio at which the scrip
is being used, the number on the market
will hold out for eight months as the
registration in April and May was approximately 300 for each month.
Since the scrip was extended to December 1911, the quotations have fluctuated considerably, but always there has
been an advance: a review of the quotations since last fall will be interesting.
In October the price was.$520, in December $690, in February $705, March 18,
$765, March 24, $$50 April 1st, $865
April 15, $785, April 22, $775, May a
