on the Electric and Southern Pacific

as he had finished the job. Rinaldo has
admitted his guilt and made a confused
statement that it was all about a girl,

her if he had not been arrested just in

ELECTRIC LIGHT CONTRACT
ALL READY FOR  CITY TO SIGN
AND SEND TO COMPANIES
Engineer Milne and Thos. Dunn
Placed the Affairs of the Committee before the Council.���Detail Reports are Ready for City.
The citizens' electric light committee
met the Council last night and through
their engineer, Jas. Milne, and chairman Thos. Dunn, placed the affairs before the aldermen, and a committee are
taking the matter up today and will report this evening.
Chairman Thos. Dunn said that all
contracts for machinery had been let,
but not signed yet, and it was up to the
city to sign up. He had wired Engineer
Milne to come up and go over the contracts and the committee's report with
the city solicitor before the contracts
were signed. There were such things
as the power house, poles, etc., to be
arranged for yet but that could not be
done by the committee. Mr. Milne was
here and would be here until the thing
was all cleaned up.
Mr. Jas. Milne said the contract to
be signed at once was the one for the
machines which take two and a half
months to make. There are boilers,
pumps, etc., condensors, engines and
apparatus to be signed for. A great?
deal of the work had already been done
but is being held back now waiting for
the contracts to be signed. He had
with him plans of the proposed plant
and lines that the city should go over
and pass upon at once. There was also
to be arranged for the arc lamp system
which would run in connection with the
incandescent system. Mr. Milne also
had a report showing just what the cost
of maintenance and operation of the
plant is so the council can decide upon
the rates to charge the consumer. The
arc lamps would have to be born by the
city generally. For the arc lamps, he
thought the city ceuld pull through
With 60 arc lamps at $99 per annum.
The question of meter rates would have
to be taken up later. He recommended
that the council arrange for a day load,
or furnish power, in order to keep down
the expense and raise the revenue. In
the winter the lighting will be run
about 17 hours and 9 hours in the summer. The incandescent lighting cost
will be high. The system being put in
is quite capable of running motors as
well as lights.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the light and
telephone committee take over this
matter from the citizens' committee
and report on such recommendations as
they see fit at the next sitting of the
council. Aid. Barrow seconded the
motion and it carried.
This means that the light committee
must get busy first thing in the morning and work all day.

FIRE AT ESSINGTON
ENGLISH   CHURCH   AND   THREE
STORES WIPED OUT.    .
Several other Buildings Destroyed.���
Fire Broke Out in a Chinese Restaurant at Midnight and Spread
Rapidly.
The Port Simpson, which got in this
morning, brings the news of a disastrous
fire at Port Essington last night, It
broke out in a Chinese dive about midnight and rapidly spread to the new
English church, which was soon a mass of
flames and was totally destroyed. It was
a handsome structure and only erected
last March.
From the church, with the high wind
blowing the fire rapidly spread to adjoining building and three stores and five
small buildings were burned.to the
ground before the conflagration was at an
end.
The Port Simpson was loading on
freight at the time the alarm was given.
Captain Jackman immediately turned
his whole crew and it is due to him and
his crew that several buildings were
saved and perhaps was saved. There was
nothing to fight the fire with except by
bucket brigades, but these do excellent
���work. Every man of the Port Simpson
worked their hardest in putting out the
flames, with the possible exception of
the purser, who did not seem to know
anything about fire when questioned by
the Optimist at the dock here this afternoon.
This is the story Captain Jackman,
of the Port Simpson, tells of the fire:
"It was sharp at twelve o'clock, and
we were just finishing loading, when
Mr. Knox, our chief Stewart, started
to hello "Fire!" Immediately all the
crew came to the front, and by that
time the Indians and others on shore
got around to where the fire was. They
started bucket brigades, but seeing the
headway the flames were making, we
tried to dynamite the adjoining buildings."
RAT DAY ON FRIDAY
CITIZENS ASKED TO JOIN IN THE
WAR AGAINST THE RODENTS
Health Committee Will Send the
Bread Mixed With Virus Around
to the Property Owners, and
They Are Asked to Place It.
Friday, June 10, has been set aside by
the Health Committee of the Council as
the day on which the first attempt will
be made to exterminate the rats which
have thus far held sway in the city.
The committee is acting in conjunction
with the Grand Trunk Pacific and Foley,
Welch & Stewart, and every citizen is
asked to join with these. The committee, under the direction of the Sanitary
Inspector, propose to have the bread
mixed with the virus, and will then send
out a gang of men to distribute it to the
owners of buildings, houses, warehouses,
stores, etc., and these people are asked
to be on hand in person or by proxy to
receive the stuff that will close the blinkers of the rodents.
Special stress is laid upon the fact
that the virus is perfectly harmless to
all animals, birds and humanity. It will
only affect the rats. There need be no
fear in handling the stuff, and it is only
by a united effort that any hope of success can be entertained.
While it is not claimed that one application of this death-dealing fluid will
entirely rid the city of rats, it is claimed
that it will so reduce the number that
they will be easily handled in future,
and probably a second effort will be
made later on. It is up to the citizens
to help. They are the most benefited,
and it costs them nothing directly.

NEW MEXICO MAN WELL PLEASED
WITH INVESTMENTS HERE.
Bought a Lot at $75 in September
and Sold in April.���Sends-David H.
Hays Souvenir in Appreciation of
His Work in Connection with Deal.
One of the best boosts a town can have
is a man who is pleased with his investments in real estate. Stoddard P.
Johnson of Carrizoza, New Mexico is
one of those. He visited Prince Rupert
last September and invested considerable
in real estate. Just as he was leaving
Mr. David H. Hays, with whom he had
been dealing advised Mr. Johnson to buy
a cheap lot in section 8,. Mr. Johnson,
took his advice and handed over $75 for
investment. Mr. Hays did the rest.
As a result the property purchased with
that $75 in September was sold in April
for over $600 making a net profit in five
months for Mr. Johnson of $535.
Mr. Johnson is naturally greatly
pleased and in writing to Mr. Hays
stated that about midsummer he would
send up several thousand dollars for
investment and later on he would come
up here to live.
A couple of days ago Mr. Hays received a very valuable souvenir from his
friend in New Mexico. It was in the form
of a photo album handsomely bound in
leather. It contained views taken by
Mr. Johnson himself while on his trip
to and from Prince Rupert. There are
several beautiful views of this city and
district and four views of a Mexican bull
fight he saw on his way home. In the
back of the album is a photo oft he cheque
which Mr. Hays sent to Mr. Johnson
after the sale of the $75 lot. Under this
photo are the words "Profit on a $75
investment in 5 months in Prince Rupert
real estate." The album was also very
neatly illuminated by Mr. Johnson and
the work is a credit to him. Mr. Hays
values the souvenir very highly.
For the South Pole.
London June 7.���The British Antarctic expedition set sail today. Capt.
Scott has announced ricember, 1911 as
the date for his aw,. J at the south
pole. After receiving visits and well
wishes from hundreds of persons, including Capt. Bartlett of the steamer
Roosevelt, the Terra Vova sailed this
afternoon from the Thames for Cardiff,
thence after coaling she will proceed to
New Zealand where Capt. Scott will
come aboard. The 10,000 mile voyage

Prince Rupert today added another
institution to those already established,
and this new one is additional evidence
not only of the rapid growth of the city
but of its prosperity. The Prince Rupert

Preliminary   and    formation
One of the best boosts a town can have
is a man who is pleased with his investments in real estate. Stoddard P.
Johnson of Carrizoza, New Mexico is
one of those. He visited Prince Rupert
last September and invested considerable
in real estate. Just as he was leaving
Mr. David H. Hays, with whom he had
been dealing advised Mr. Johnson to buy
a cheap lot in section 8,. Mr. Johnson,
took his advice and handed over $75 for
investment. Mr. Hays did the rest.
As a result the property purchased with
that $75 in September was sold in April
for over $600 making a net profit in five
months for Mr. Johnson of $535.
Mr. Johnson is naturally greatly
pleased and in writing to Mr. Hays
stated that about midsummer he would
send up several thousand dollars for
investment and later on he would come
up here to live.
A couple of days ago Mr. Hays received a very valuable souvenir from his
friend in New Mexico. It was in the form
of a photo album handsomely bound in
leather. It contained views taken by
Mr. Johnson himself while on his trip
to and from Prince Rupert. There are
several beautiful views of this city and
district and four views of a Mexican bull
fight he saw on his way home. In the
back of the album is a photo of t he cheque
which Mr. Hays sent to Mr. Johnson
after the sr.le of the $75 lot. Under this
photo are the words "Profit on a $75
investment in 5 months in Prince Rupert
real estate." The album was also very
neatly illuminated by Mr. Johnson and
the work is a credit to him. Mr. Hays
values the souvenir very highly.

LIQUOR license by-law.
One of the most important by-laws which the municipal council has to deal with is
the Liquor License by-law which they have in hand at the present time. In regard to
liquor licenses and the liquor traffic generally there is a good deal of public sentiment
and that must receive due consideration. A council cannot afford to rush through in
a night or two a by-law which largely has to do with the public morals and on which
there is so strong public feeling. There is not even the excuse of necessity in hurrying
this measure, for we understand that no licenses can be granted until September, as
was stated in these columns before. It would be well therefore, to allow this by-law
to stand over until such time as the public may express an opinion, or at least until
legislation has been carefully considered. We understand most of the by-laws are
being drafted from the Victoria by-laws, and everyone knows that that city has been
particularly backward and slovenly for the past fifteen years. Victoria makes no
advance movement whatever on most questions and particularly on the liquor
license question. Copying from the Victoria by-Jaws or some other equally antiquated by-law the Prince Rupert council proclaims that barrooms shall close at
twelve o'clock at night and open at five o'clock in the morning, except Saturday
night when eleven o'clock is the closing hour. This is a very old hour and all cities
and towns that are up to date have placed early closing restrictions upon the liquor
traffic, and they got their authority from the Liquor License Act. Public sentiment
and the public welfare also demand it.
The new legislation passed at the last session of the Legislature gives the municipality authority to close the bars at any hour they see fit.(clause 74, part 4).
In a great many places throughout the country the daily closing hour is 11 o'clock
p.m. and the opening hour 6 o'clock a.m. and on Saturday night the closing hour is
7 o'clock p.m. and open again Monday morning at 6 o'clock. There is also a strong
feeling here that similar hours should prevail in this city.
Sub. Sec.(d) of clause 74, gives the municipal council even wider scope in the
control of the traffic, as will be seen by the following:-
" Municipal Powers.
"In addition to the provisions for Sunday observance contained in this section
of this Act, the Municipal Council of any Municipality in the Province of British
Columbia shall be deemed to have always had power to and may by by-law and concurrently with and in addition to the exercise of any powers conferred upon such
Municipal Council by the Municipal Clauses Act or by any other Act of the Legislature of the Province of British Columbia, provide and enforce all such further
or other restrictions and prohibited hours and days and times within which liquor
may be sold within such municipality, and times within which every bar-room and
and every place containing any stock of liquor within such municipality must be
securely closed and locked, so that no person may have access thereto, together with
such provisions for continuous and free inspection of the premises directed to be
closed and locked as such Municipal Council may think fit; and no such by-law,
whether now in force or hereafter to be passed, shall be quashed or set aside or declared ineffectual or void by reason of any informality or by reason of any want of
declaration of the power under and by virtue of which such by-law is passed, or
on or for or by reason of any ground or matter whatsoever; but every such by-law
shall be valid and effectual and shall be enforceable and inforced so as to carry out
the intention of the Municipal Council passing said by-law as expressed therein.."

HIGH SCHOOL WANTED.
Effort Being Made to Ascertain the
Number of Pupils Available.
LICENSING IN VANCOUVER.
The members of the school board
would like to know the number of pupils
there are in Prince Rupert who would
attend a high school if they had the
opportunity. There is no way to find
out unless the parents who have children
elligable for the high school were to
notify Mr. Bennett of the school board
or the principal of the public school at as
early a date as possible.
In order to get the government grant
there must be at least 20 pupils and unless there are a number in the city who
are unknown those passing the entrance
this summer will not make up the re-
less than fifteen bundles of stock changed
hands. The stocks dealt in mainly were
Portland, Star, Main Reef, Portland
Canal and Red Cliff. These and all the
other stocks dealt is held strong and were
in good demand, and other offerings
was brisk.
There will be a board call at eleven
o'clock every day except Sunday from
now on, and it will be interesting to
compare the rises and falls inlocal mining stocks dealt with in a local market
with the quotations of the same stocks
recorded  by the Vancouver exchange!
Hotel   Men  Opposed to  Closing  at
Eleven o'clock.
With respect to the proposed amendment to the Liquor License by-law the
hotel men of Vancouver, through H. L.
Edmonds objected to the proposal to
close all bars in the city at 11 o'clock
every night instead of 2 a.m. They asked
that the hour be placed at 12 o'clock
instead. The majority of the aldermen
were in favor of the 11 o'clock closing.
A change in the suggested amendments
was also asked for so that hotel proprietors would not be made responsible
for all debts contracted for all pa ts of
the hotel, to provide for cases where the
dining rooms were conducted under a
separate management. These and other
suggestions will be given consideration
before the by-law is finally passed.

LIQUOR LICENSE  BY-LAW.
One of the most important by-laws which the municipal council has to deal with is
the Liquor License by-law which they have in hand at the present time. In regard to
liquor licenses and the liquor traffic generally there is a good deal of public sentiment
and that must receive due consideration. A council cannot afford to rush through in
a night or two a by-law which largely has to do with the public morals and on which
there is so strong public feeling. There is not even the excuse of necessity in hurrying
this measure, for we understand that no licenses can be granted until September, as
was stated in these columns before. It would be well therefore, to allow this by-law
to stand over until such time as the public may express an opinion, or at least until
legislation has been carefully considered. We understand most of the by-laws are
being drafted from the Victoria by-laws, and everyone knows that that city has been
particularly backward and slovenly for the past fifteen years. Victoria makes no
advance movement whatever on most questions and particularly on the liquor
license question. Copying from the Victoria by-Jaws or some other equally antiquated by-law the Prince Rupert council proclaims that barrooms shall close at
twelve o'clock at night and open at five o'clock in the morning, except Saturday
night when eleven o'clock is the closing hour. This is a very old hour and all cities
and towns that are up to date have placed early closing restrictions upon the liquor
traffic, and they got their authority from the Liquor License Act. Public sentiment
and the public welfare also demand it.
The new legislation passed at the last session of the Legislature gives the municipality authority to close the bars at any hour they see fit.(clause 74, part 4).
In a great many places throughout the country the daily closing hour is 11 o'clock
p.m. and the opening hour 6 o'clock a.m. and on Saturday night the closing hour is
7 o'clock p.m. and open again Monday morning at fi o'clock. There is also a strong
feeling here that similar hours should prevail in this city.
Sub. Sec.(d) of clause 74, gives the municipal council even wider scope in the
control of the traffic, as will be seen by the following:-
" Municipal Powers.
"In addition to the provisions for Sunday observance contained in this section
of this Act, the Municipal Council of any Municipality in the Province of British j
Columbia shall be deemed to have always had power to and may by by-law and con-
currently with and in addition to the exercise of any powers conferred upon such
Municipal Council by the Municipal Clauses Act or by any other Act of the Legis- j
lature of the Province of British Columbia, provide and enforce all such further
or other restrictions and prohibited hours and days and times within which liquor
may be sold within such municipality, and times within which every bar-room and
and every place containing any stock of liquor within such municipality must be
securely closed and locked, so that no person may have access thereto, together with
such provisions for continuous and free inspection of the premises directed to be
closed and locked as such Municipal Council may think fit; and no such by-law,
whether now in force or hereafter to be passed, shall be quashed or set aside or declared ineffectual or void by reason of any informality or by reason of any want of
declaration of the power under and by virtue of which such by-law is passed, or
on or for or by reason of any ground or matter whatsoever; but every such by-law
shall be valid and effectual and shall be enforceable and inforced so as to carry out
the intention of the Municipal Council passing said by-law as expressed therein.."
HIGH SCHOOL WANTED.
Effort Being Made to Ascertain the
Number of Pupils Available.
LICENSING IN VANCOUVER.
The members of the school board
would like to know the number of pupils
there are in Prince Rupert who would
attend a high school if they had the
opportunity. There is no way to find
out unless the parents who have children
elligable for the high school were to
notify Mr. Bennett of the school board
or the principal of the public school at as
early a date as possible.
In order to get the government grant
there must be at least 20 pupils and unless there are a number in the city who
are unknown those passing the entrance
this summer will not make up the re-
less than fifteen bundles of stock changed
hands. The stocks dealt in mainly were
Portland, Star, Main Reef, Portland
Canal and Red Cliff. These and all the
other stocks dealt is held strong and were
in good demand, and other offerings
was brisk.
There will be a board call at eleven
o'clock every day except Sunday from
now on, and it will be interesting to
compare the rises and falls inlocal mining stocks dealt with in a local market
with the quotations of the same stocks
recorded  by the Vancouver exchange.
Hotel  Men Opposed to Closing  at
Eleven o'clock.
With respect to the proposed amendment to the Liquor License by-law the
hotel men of Vancouver, through H. L.
Edmonds objected to the proposal to
close all bars in the city at 11 o'clock
every night instead of 2 a.m. They asked
that the hour be placed at 12 o'clock
instead. The majority of the aldermen
were in favor of the 11 o'clock closing.
A change in the suggested amendments
was also asked for so that hotel proprietors would not be made responsible
for all debts contracted for all pa ts of
the hotel, to provide for cases where the
dining rooms were conducted under a
separate management. These and other
suggestions will be given consideration
before the by-law is finally passed.

Mr. Evans of the Prince Rupert

The Optimist to state that the exchange
with which he is connected was the
first one organized in Prince Rupert,

and receive daily quotations from Victoria and Vancouver as will be seen by

Joe Martin Embarrassed.
Here is the manner in which, under
the caption of "from the Far West,"
the Liverpool Mercury pays its compliments to our own Joseph Martin, M. P.
"It is not often we hear the Trans-
Atlantic twang in the house. It sounded a night or two ago. Mr. Joseph Martin, from western Canada, and now one
of the members for St. Pancras, had a
few plain words to say to the government about the taxation of land. He
is a stoutish man, with ripe round face
and he is inclined to baldness. He
sticks his hands in his pockets, and
plays with his keys and his money and
talks in that frank unconventional way
which is supposed to be the result of
living on the prairies. He pronounces
the word honourable as though it were
"anruble." He was constantly referring to the "anruble gentlemen." The
elaborate and rather complex procedure of the mother of parliaments was
confusing to his virgin mind. When
he discovered that he was allowed to
point out that the government was
wandering along the wrong path, but
was prohibited from making suggestions along what path they should follow, he removed his left hand from
his pocket, scratched the back of his
head with his thumb and made a gesture which was nothing short of eloquent."

read,"Gone to push clouds in Charles K.

Wmmmt THE    PRINCE    RUPERT   OPTIMIST
EXCHANGE IS OPENED
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
are able to take a flyer in a mining proposition as an investment, but ready to
dabble in stocks for mere speculation.
From the interest taken in the opening
of the exchange this morning, it is plain
to see the morning call is to be a daily
event of absorbing interest. The man
who carried a piece of quartz in hks
pocket will give place to the man with the
dope book, and puts, calls and options
will be the vernacular instead of leads
and dips and foot and hanging walls.
Stocks will be the all absorbing subject
of conversation from now on, mines coming in as a good second.
There was a full attendance of members
of the exchange, and quite a crowd of the
general public looking on. The business
went slowly at the start. J. R. Talpey,
who acted as temporary caller, first desiring to get the stock offerings on the
blackboard. These it will be noticed by
the exchange report in another column,
kept closely to the Vancouver quotations,
later on the board will probably make its
own, and for all the mines in this northern part of the province the local board
should be making the quotations for
Vancouver and the outside world. When
the offerings were listed then came the
bidding. It was plainly to be seen that
not all the members had in a former
state of existence attended board calls
as a business duty. Their first bids
were timid and tentative, and as if they
wished they had a string on to snatch
them back for fear they should be
up. But after two or three sales were
made, and they tumbled to the rules of
the game, there was more confidence felt
and by the closing hour they bid more
readily.
For an opening call it can be declared
a great success and a promise that the
exchange will have a prosperous future.
This is demonstrated by the fact that no
quired number. There will be about
twelve or thirteen write on the entrance
examinations this summer from Prince
Rupert and Port Essington. The balance
of the twenty will have to be made up
from those in the city. The educationists
are anxious to establish a high school
class here this fall, if possible, and to
the benefit of the parents it will be to
assist in getting the necessary information.
WORK    ON   SEWERS   STARTED.
S. P. MeMordie & Co. Have a Large
Gang on Permanent System.
S. P. MeMordie & Co. started a gang
of men at work on their sewer contract
this week. The district to be served is
from Fulton street west to Eighth street
and from Fraser street south to the
water front. The contract was let by
the Sewer Committee a couple of weeks
ago, and the expense will be met by
the $25,000 appropriated by the Provincial Government. This sewer will be
the first of the permanent system, and
it is designed to handle all sewage matter, but it is not for surface or basement drainage. A special system will
have to be constructed for that purpose
by the city at a later date.
