HAVE SECURED A CHARTER
Prince  Rupert Stock Exchange Organized���Full   Membership
Obtained���List  of
Members.
Prince Rupert is to have a stock exchange. A charter has been obtained
and organization completed. At first
it will content itself with mining stocks
and shares. Its promoters feel that
there is vast scope in Prince Rupert
for this class of business, and will establish immediately an open call for
the official quotation of this class of
security. With the growth of the city
its members will bring Industrials and
Municipal securities into the scope of
its endeavour and Prince Rupert will
boast an active stock exchange.
At present the membership is limited
to 25, each member being a shareholder
in the Corporation. Later, this membership will be raised to 40. The
following members have already become shareholders which ensures the
prospective  success of the enterprise: -

Will Give $1000
A meeting of the Real Estate Exchange
was held in Pattullo & Radford's office
yesterday afternoon, when the matter
of the proposed pamphlet was discussed..
The plan proposed is a bird's eye view
of the Pacific Coast showing Prince
Rupert and vicinity prominently, Vancouver in the distance to the south and
Fort George to the east, with the G. T. P.
line. It was decided to contribute
$1000, provided the Publicity Club
and Board of Trade make contributions.
KING EDWARD IS DEAD.
London, May 7,���The official time
of the King's death is given out by
Knollys as 11.45 p. m. The end was
kept secret from the world half an hour
though newspaper men were in waiting
for more than twelve hours. An anxious crowd numbering thousands waic-
; ed silently outside Buckingham Palace.
Throughout the day all the churches
in   Great  Britain  were  offering  pray-
I ers. The members of the Royal Family
were summoned early in the afternoon,
, and    outside   this    circle    Archbishop
; Canterbury was the only person with
: the physicians.
According to rumors in the City
to night, the King's death was really
i caused by cancer in the throat, such
as his aunt, the Empress Frederick
of Germany, died from. The King,
while conscious this afternoon, said
he thought the end was near and he
! hoped he had done  his duty.
Queen Alexandra has borne up well.
It was thought early this afternoon
that an operation would prolong the
King's life, but it was later decided
that the patient was too weak.
The Prince of Wales was the first
to come out of the death chamber,
and as he passed the outer doors
the guards gave him the King's salute,
which he acknowledged with tears
in his eyes.
King Edward's death comes at a
critical period, with a political crisis
at hand.
The general expression here is that
the new King is weak compared with
his father.
Preparations were made early this
afternoon to bolster up securities, but
the market situation is serious and
chaotic.
The  death of the Monarch is keenly
felt all over the world.
The Beloved Monarch of the
World's Greatest Empire
and tolling of bells made known the
J Empire's bereavment. Premier Laurier
has made no public statement, pending
official government action. Hon Borden,
Hon. Fielding and all the cabinet
| united in tributes to the dead monarch.
All entertainments are cancelled.

Fears Responsibility
London, May 7,���Prince George,
as the King lay dying, sadly admitted
to those around that he feared assuming
the responsibility of the monarchy with
affairs in such a crisis. The grief of th
Queen Alexandra is most pathetic
and friends of the royal couple say
that they were deeply in love of late
years.   Her condition gives no cause for
alarm. The public are criticising the
King's physicians, claiming that they
should not have allowed King Edward
to go to the rigorous climate of Biarritz,
and to Sandringham, where he caught
his fatal cold. It is conceded, however,
that indiscretions only hastened the
end which was inevitable. Arrangements
for the funeral are in abeyance until
the cabinet meets. The members are
scattered, but are expected immediately. The House of Commons will be in
session Monday. The King of Portugal
cabled to-day he would attend the
funeral.

Kaiser Pays Tribute
Berlin, May 7,���The Kaiser paid a
tribute to the greatest diplomat in
the world. The loss to Britain cannot
be   estimated.
Premier  McBride
Victoria, May 7,���"British Columbia
mourns in common with millions of
others in the Empire, for it seems as
if His Majesty took particular interest
in this Western province,"said Premier
McBride,  learning of  King's  death.
GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER
Verdict Against Lofstedt,  the Wife
Killer���Jury Out Five Minutes���Judge Altered
Charge.
Vancouver, May 6,���Lofstedt the
Prince Rupert prisoner on trial for
' killing his wife, was found guilty of
manslaughter by the jury yesterday.
Judge Murphy, who presided at the
Court instructed that the charge of
murder be changed to manslaughter,
after hearing the evidence. The jury
retired, and were out just five minutes.
The evidence was much the same as
given at the preliminary hearing here.
Mrs. Kincaid told of an alleged confession of Lofstedt in the presence of
herself, the doctor and George Nuttall,
another neighbour and an engineer
on the G. T. P. Mrs. Kincaid claimed
that the prisoner's reply that he did it
because the wife wanted to go away
with another man.
The defence endeavoured to prove
that Mrs. Lofstedt was killed by the
| fall off the porch, and not from the
blows inflicted by the prisoner. Lofstedt did not give evidence himself.
Following a tiff between the counsels
in the case as to whether constable
Hazlett's evidence should be heard,
Judge Murphy said that constable
should be told not to ask questions
of a prisoner after they make an arrest.

TO MARK  BOUNDARY
Mr. J. D. Craig, of the department of
the interior, Ottawa, organized in Vancouver a survey party to co-operate
with a party from the United States
for the purpose of marking the boundary line between Alaska and Canada,
north of the Yukon, the treaty line
being the 141st meridian. Mr. Craig
will have as his assistant, Mr. A. D.
Stewart, who will have charge of a
sub-party. Mr. Fred Lambert will
have charge of another party that
will work in the vicinity of Mount St.
Elias.
The American party will be under
the direction of Mr. Thomas Riggs, jr.,
who has been, in past years, working
in co-operation with Mr. Craig. The
Canadian outfit are now en route
on the Princess Royal. At Skagway
it will join forces with the American
surveyors. They will then proceed
down the Yukon River to a point
about 130 miles below Dawson. Supplies j
will be transported inland by a pack
train of 100 horses.
The treaty line runs along the 141st
meridian from a base at Mount St.
Elias to the Arctic Ocean. The parties
this year expect to get as far north
as the Porcupine River, and if they
succeed in doing this, there will only
remain a gap of 150 miles to complete
the survey to the Arctic Ocean.
The department is also sending
surveyors to Lynn Canal where, Mr.
Ogilvie will, spend the summer, and Mr.
Mackie will take up work in the Portland canal  district.

An investor put $35 into Prince

pretty easy money. The property
consisted of lots 14 and 15, block 6,
section 8. They were sold at the big
auction for $70 each, and did not have
many bidders at that. The purchaser
paid one quarter down amounting to
$35. Yesterday they were turned over
at $1000, a profit, in round figures,
of nearly 3000 per cent. The buyer
considers his purchase to be a snap,
and would not sell at a big advance..

OPTIMIST THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
G.T.P. GENERAL SECRETARY
l>:
TALKS ABOUT THE WONDERFUL GROWTH OF THIS WONDERFUL
CITY OF THE NORTH
Congratulates The   Optimist on   its Development into the Daily Field
���Looks for   It Every  Week
H.  Philip, general secretary of the
Grand   Trunk   Pacific   Ry.,   Montreal, j
is one of those in Mr    Chamberlain's
party.     To the  Optimist  Mr.  Philip]
stated that this was his fourth trip here j
The first one was in 1907, before the!
place had been selected as the terminal
port.    He was here a year ago before j
the sale of lots, and when they were
just beginning to construct the plank
roads.   There was practically no building then.    Each visit has seen a wonderful difference in the place.    When
he was coming up the harbor this time
and could see the road bed all graded
and tracks laid and then as he rounded
the island and caught a glimpse of the
city   and   all  the   buildings   that   had
been put up he was filled with wonder
He did not think such progress was
possible, although he had all faith in
the city  and  the  people here.
He was not only surprised, but he
was   delighted    with   the   substantial
business blocks going up, as well as
the fine residences. He was also surprised at the amount of construction
now going on. He looked for Prince
Rupert to be one of the greatest Coast
cities, and deemed investment here
was as safe as any bank. When the
railroad is completed it will develop
a country that will mean much to this
city and he could not see where there
would be any slump in prices. This
city would be the exception. While
it is booming now, it is not a bubble,
and it will continue to boom.
In all his trips to this great city,
Mr. Philip has always struck fine
weather and his visit has always been
of the most pleasant. He congratulated
the Optimist on its development into
the daily field. He always looked
every week for the Optimist, to learn
what was going on here and he would
be glad to get the daily edition in
future.
the work is already done and of all
the Contractors only one has dropped.
The others are well satisfied with their
proposition.
Several    Cases   Disposed   of By   Judge
Young Last Week.
ln the County Court on Tuesday, His
Honor Judge Young found three cases
on the docket. The action of the Grand
Trunk Pacific vs. John H. Kirkpatrick
was called first, but was withdrawn
upon the defendant putting up the plea
that the value of the land in question
was over $2,500, and that he was on a
mineral claim. Mr. W. E. Fisher for
the plaintifff, arid Mr. L. W. Patmore
for defendant.
The action of G. T. P. Town & Development Co. vs. Hamilton Douglas
resulted in a similar way. Mr. W. E.
Fisher for plaintiffs and Mr. A. M.
Manson for defendant.
WEDNESDAY'S  SESSION.
On Wednesday morning, before Judge
Young, the case of John Bremner vs.
Gipsy Hamilton was non-suited upon
the motion of the defendant's solicitor,
Mr. A. M. Manson. His Honor held
that the plaintiff did not make out a
case. The claim was for chimneys
erected on the house in which the defendant lives. Mr. W. E. Fisher ap.
peared for the plaintiff.
FOR  NATURALIZATION.
His Honor Judge Young received 136
applications for naturalization on Wednesday last, but only granted 20 of
them. The majority of the applications were irregular, and owing to the
large foreign population his honor insists on the personal appearance of the
applicant.
Real Estate Business.
Real Estate generally has improved
considerably the past week and several
good sales were put through while others
were still pending. Mr. JameB Allen
Government Agent at Atlin, was here
investing in Prince Rupert business
lota.
Messrs. McCaffery & Gibbons have
purchased lots 21 and 22 on Fifth Avenue
for an outside party from Mr Blain
of Alaska.   The price paid was $2,750.
Diamond Drill.
A diamond drill is being used on the
Japanese mine and good results are
being obtained.

Good Value in Gold.
Mr. Davidson, manager of the Com-
sewa Mining Co., was a passenger on
the S.S. Amur on Monday. He had been
on a visit to the mine at Consewa Inlet
where the prospects of successful
operations are very bright. The assays
show good values in gold and silver
A lot of ore is being taken out.
New Manager   of   the   Portland   Canal
Mining Co.
Mr. C. H. Dickie, head of the Portland
Canal Mining Co., was in the city a
couple of days last week on his way up
to the Company's mine. He was accompanied by Mr. Wm. J. Elmendorf, of Spokane, a well known Mining Engineer,
who has accepted the position of manager
of the Company's operations at Portland
Canal. Mr. Dickie stated to the Optimist
lhat work on the concentrating mill and
the aerial tramway which connecis rhe
mine and mill would be rushed. He
expected that the mill would be ready
to run by mid-summer. The Company
has a large body of ore blocked out,
sufficient to continue operations for
several years. Mr. Dickie will organize
the campaign for the year and it will be
on a much larger scale than heretofor.
Some 50 or 60 men will be employed.
Mr. French, of the Hudson Bay Co.,
was in the city last week and left on
Sunday on the Port Simpson for the
canyon and Hazelton. At the canyon
he will arrange for the reconstruction
of the two warehouses which collapsed
last winter under the weight of snow.
The new buildings will be erected at
once. The one below the canyon will
be much larger than the old one, in
fact, all the available land will be
utilized. The one above will be about
the same size. Mr. French will be
away two or three weeks and expects
that before he comes back the warehouses will be nearly completed.
Asked by the Optimist what the
prospects were for the season's operations, Mr. French stated that they
were very bright, especially in the
freight line. The immense quantity of
railway supplies to go up the river
would alone guarantee full cargoes,
while the local freight is increasing
very rapidlv. The Hudson Bay Co.
have not decided to put on any new
boats this season.
Mr. T. Planitz, of the British Columbia Real Estate Syndicate, has returned after a three weeks trip to
Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria. He
reports a very successful trip. To the
Optimist he stated that he took down
42 lots with him and sold them all
without effort. He could have easily
sold many more. While he made his
headquarters in Victoria, where he
established a branch of the B. C. R.
E. S., he said that wherever he went
he found that public opinion favored
Prince Rupert. Everyone is talking
about this city and they have the
utmost confidence in the future development. He expressed himself as confi-
fident that in a few days or weeks a
great many people from the three
cities he visited will come up here with
plenty of capital to invest in Prince
Rupert real estate. He looks for
heavy trading in a short time. The
weather in Vancouver and Victoria has
been very backward. While he was
there it was cold with lots of rain and
snow. That feature had a tendency to
keep the people at home.
Speaking of the local trading in real
estate Mr. Planitz said that the last
two days quite a number of middle
priced property had been turned over
and there was a steady improvement.
F. Collins, a passenger on the Princess Royal from Skagway to Vancouver,
died in his berth sometime between
Sunday night and Monday morning,
from heart failure. He was around the
boat Sunday evening apparently as
well as ever, but on Monday morning
he did not appear at breakfast.
About noon the head steward went to
stateroom, which was No. 12, but got
no reply, so he climbed in through
window from the deck. Collins was
found dead in his berth and his body
was cold, he having died several hours
earlier. Upon arrival in port Dr. Tre-
mayne and coroner McMullin were
notified. The Doctor pronounced it
a case of heart failure and an inquest
was deemed unnecessary. Hayner
Bros., took charge of the body and
prepared it for shipment to Vancouver.
The deceased was a single man,
about 51 years of age. He was an operator on the Yukon-White Pass Railway
at Yukon Crossing. He had been there
for the past twelve years and was
coming down to see his relatives in
Wisconsin for the first time since he
went North. He was very popular
in the Yukon and general regret will
be felt there over his sudden and sad
demise.
FERRY AT ZANARDI
G.T.P.   WILL  TRANSFER  RAILS
AND MATERIAL  UNTIL
THE BRIDGE IS
COMPLETE
"Track laying will be pushed  with
all  possible speed  from  now  on"  said
| Mr.   Chamberlain,   General   Manager
I of the G.  T. P. Ry., to the Optimist
1 at noon to-day.   "We have secured the
j scow Georgia  and  we are putting in
J ferry slips  at  the Zenardi  Rapids to
I ferry the material across.    We expect
the track laid right up to the top of
the river ready for trains to run over
by the time the bridge is completed.
The work  has  been  progressing  very
, fast, but we expect it will go a little
1 faster now."
"What about the Zenardi Bridge,"
asked the Optimist.
"We   are   getting   along   very   well
with it.   If we have no difficulty with
j the last two piers, the bridge contractor should be able to commence the erection of steel by the 1st of Jnne."
Asked about the station, Mr Chamberlain said he saw no reason for altering the original plans which provide for
the station alongside the hotel. In
order to do any excavating the hotel
will have to come out, and the General
Manager did not see how that could
be done at present.
As for the work here, Mr. Chamberlain is satisfied. He has been on a steady
tramp from the time he arrived and
has gone over most of the ground.
This afternoon he went over the grading being done to the end of the docks
and around the island. This morning
he went over the western yards. The
chief feature in Mr Chamberlain's
mind appears to be to rush the work all
along the line, and that means putting
on a larger force and a bigger payroll.
A GREAT COLLECTION
Of  Curios  From  all   Parts  of   the
World
On Tuesday last the Water Committee
met and opened tenders for the supply
of pipes for the water extensions now
being made on Sixth Avenue and also
for the necessary lumber. These tenders
were received for the pipes and the contract was awarded to the Municipal
Pipe Co., their tender being the lowest.
Only one tener for supplying lumber was
received and it was accepted. The tenders were.-
For Water Pipe

D. H. Lee, of Seattle, was in the city
last week on his way to his home after
a ten days trip to Stewart and his
mineral claims on Bitter Creek. Mr.
Lees is very enthusiastic over the way
his claims are turning out, and he is
confident that Bitter Creek mines will
prove to be the best proposition of
all the properties up there. His mines
show galena with a very promising
vein of gold running across. There is
a ledge of from 20 to 30 feet. The galena
ledge is 8 to 10 feet and the seams
of this ore he has had assayed averages
$40. to the ton.
Mr. Lee and his son went up to the
mineand the son will remain there while
Mr. Lee will return to Seattle for a month
when he will come back and begin
development   operations   in   earnest.
In speaking of Stewart, Mr. Lee said
to the Optimist that it was growing
very rapidly, although as yet the
building has been handicapped on
account of the deep snow. He estimated that there is about three and
one half feet in Stewart and about
four feet outside. It is melting very
fast, however, and in three or four
weeks will all   be gone
A townsite has been asked for at the
mouth of Bitter Creek and a hotel and
a couple of stores are being established there now.
Captain Wm. Berndt, of the Humboldt S. S. Co's Germanicus, made
many warm friends during his two
weeks stay in Prince Rupert while his
boat was being unloaded of the rails
for the G. T. P.
The captain has been 30 years a
sea captain and, like thousands of
others, went to sea soon after he learned
to walk. His boat arrived here on April
12th, and cleared again for Nanaimo
for orders. The Germanicus was from
Hamburg, Germany, and she took
her cargo at Cape Breton.
While   in   Prince   Rupert   Captain
Berndt   was   introduced   to   Captain
Buckholtz of the Henriette, and during
] the early stages of their conversation,
j they discovered   that   they had   been
shipmates 32 years ago.   At the time,
��� Capt.  Berndt  was second  officer  on
a German  ship and  Capt.  Buckholtz
was a seaman.   They had a great talk
over old   times,  as  neither  had   met
during the past 32 years.
One of the most interesting features
of the Germanicus, and the one which
attracted most attention from the
visitors, was the captain's collection
of curios. His little museum is a very
valuable one and contains specimens
of bones and relics that many National
museums would greatly prize. The
genial captain has been collecting
curios ever since he went to sea, and he
has something from practically every
country in the world. The most important feature of the collection is that
every specimen is genuine. Among
other things are guns, revolvers, pistols
of all kinds and ages and from many
countries, including the old Arabian
flint-lock and the old silver barrel
blunderbus. He has tusks and teeth
of almost every kind of animal. There
are numerous spear-heads and arrowheads, including a very pretty little
blue amethyst arrow-head.    There are
also many specimens of petrified oysters
wood, leaves and part of a mammoth
tusk
Among the assortment of knives
is one that was used by the head hunters of Borneo. The popular pastime
of those gentlemen is to hunt men and
behead them, and each time a head
was secured a little gold plug was
inserted in the blade of the knife.
This one had 72 plugs in it. The Captain secured this prize while he was
in Borneo. The owner had beheaded
a man and had been captured by the
British. His knife was taken away from
from him and also the last head it
severed. The captain secured both and
has the skull yet.

of Ladysmith, and part of a Japanese
ese shell fired during the attack on
Vladivostok, as well as other shells

snakes; some 60 assegais, a javelin

and other skulls from many countries;
and many other curios.
While in this city the Captain added
to his collection a totem pole, and several other Indian relics.
HOSPITAL COST $12,500
Superstructure   Contract   Awarded
to E. H. Shockley
After being awarded the contract
for the excavation and foundation
for the new hospital, S. H. Watson
& Co. refused to sign stating that
they did not care to go on with the
work. This was reported to the Hospital board yesterday afternoon by
Architect Bailey, and the board decided
to award the contract to F. Christian,
who was the next lowest tenderer.
His price was:���earth, 70 cents, rock
$1.90, concrete $8.75. If he refuses
to sign the contract, new tenders are to
be called for, and a 5 per cent, deposit will be required.
Those present at the meeting were
President J. A. Kirkpatrick, William
Manson, T. D. Pattullo, H. H. Clarke,
G. W. Morrow, A. Carss, E. K. Strathy,
D. G. Stewart, P. I. Palmer and Secretary A. Cuthbert.
For Superstructure
Six tenders were received for the
superstructure of the new hospital,
as follows:���
E. J. Hicks     $12,745
R. Scott 16,684
D. H. Morrison  16,960
Strange & Dagnall  17,248
E. H. Shockley     12,750
Mclnnes Brothers  14,000
The architect estimated the cost at
$16,209
The first two bids did not have
a marked cheque for 6 per cent
cent of the cost and were therefore
not considered. Thp tender of Mr.
E. H. Shockley, being the lowest, was
accepted. He is to start his work as
as soon as the foundation is ready,
and to complete the building in four
months thereafter. A penalty clause
will be included in the contract.
Subscription List.
The matter of completing the subscription list for the new hospital was
brought up and it was decided to meet
on Friday morning at the club and go
out and complete the list.
The hearing of Charles Heaton who was
charged with assaulting and doing
bodily harm to Detective Robert McKenzie was concluded last week and Heaton was sent up for trial. He elected
for trial by Jury and his case will be
at Vancouver at the sessions. It will
be remembered that Heaton and
McKenzie got into a mix up in the Hub
Cigar store on Sunday night, April 10th.,
which resulted in Heaton being shot
in theleg by the detective, and the detective was badly wounded by the Colorado
Kid. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

Supt. Mehan, of the G. T. P. construction told the Optimist this morning
that one of the slips at Zanardi Rapids
for the ferry was completed and the
other would be started this morninir,.
It would take about a week to complete
and get ready for running the ferry.
The scow Georgia will be used and will
be put into commission at once, carrying rails and supplies across for the
tracks along the river.
PIERS  IN  POSITION.
The last two piers for the Zanardi
di Rapids bridge are now in place and
the concrete work will be started
immediately. For sometime they have
been favored by low tides, which is
a great advantage, but the high tides
are expected about next Thursday. Every
effort will be put forth to get the work
advanced before that time.

RUPERT    MINING    EXCHANGE.
Prince Rupert Men Will Become Incorporated at Once.
Prince Rupert is to have a Mining
Exchange and it will be open to oo |
business within the next ten or twelve
days. The chief object of the exchange
is to handle all British Columbia mining;
stocks and particularly those of most
interest locally. The exchange will
have its own code and will receive the
quotations from Vancouver by wire
every morning, and as things develop
other wires will be put in.
The above was the decision of about
twenty of the leading and most active
business, real estate and insurance men
of the city at a meeting held in C. D.
Rand's office on Friday afternoon. A
great boom in mining development and
consequently in the stocks is expected
within the next few weeks. In fact it
is assured. The local mining men are
active and preparing for a big development campaign this season. A large
number of miners and mining men are
on their way from the Cobalt district
and from other mining centres, In face
of this the local people who have the
upbuilding of Prince Rupert at heart
were not slow. They are bent on
getting all that is going for this city,
which is really the centre of activities.
At Friday's meeting W. H. Law
occupied the chair and Chas. Halsey
acted as secretary. All present were
enthusiastic and a committee of five
was appointed and given full power to
proceed with the incorporation of the
exchange at once. Those on the committee are: Messrs. Talpey, Pattullo,
Harrison, Leonard & Major Gibson.
The name of the exchange has not
been definitely decided upon nor has the
location of the offices. These matters
will, however, be arranged in a few
days. The hours at first will likely be
from 10 to 12 or they may be extended
until 1 o'clock.
them to get what is coming to them. A
better service would bring all the Stewart business to Prince Rupert, and that
is what this city needs.
Damages Were Awarded.
The first sitting of the Supreme
Court in Prince Rupert was concluded
on Monday last when the civil action
brought by the North Coast Towing
Co. against McKenzie Bros. Co., was
disposed of by His Lordship Chief
Justice Hunter. The plaintiffs were
awarded $482.20 and costs. The cause
of the action dates back to August 25,
1909, when at 2 o'clock a.m. the propeller of the steamer Rupert City collided with the propeller of the tug
McCulloch. Some fourteen witnesses
were heard. Mr. A. M. Manson, of
Manson & Williams, appeared for the
plaintiffs, and Mr. C. B. Benhett, of
Carss & Bennett, for the defendants.
TO REBUILD WHARF.
Captain   Nicholson  Says  The   New
Structure Will Be Permanent
Railway Work.
Mr. Knobel, chief engineer for
McKenzie & Mann, passed through the
city on Friday night with a staff of engineers on their way to Stewart, where
they will lay out the work for the coming season in connection with the railway. They expect to have a very good
time.
Power for Stewart.
The Stewart, Portland Canal, Light,
Water & Power Co.. Limited, is a new
company recently organized for the purpose of developing the natural resources
of that very promising district. The
company is capitalized at $260,000, and
they propose to supply the town of
Stewart and the adjoining mines with
water, light and power for domestic
and manufacturing purposes. Messrs.
Samuel Harrison & Co., real estate and
financial agents, Second Avenue, are
the Prince Rupert and Stewart agents.
The head office of the company is at
Vancouver.
STEWART BOAT SERVICE.
People   Anxious   for a   Direct   Service
With Prince Rupert.
The Stewart people are getting very
active and are alive to-the. necessities
of their town during the boom period,
said Mr. Vaughan Rhys. They have
applied for $35,000 from the government for sewers and water works, and
are trying to hustle things in order to
accommodate the big rush of people.
The population at the present time is
increasing at the rate of about 300 per
week. The Stewart people have a stiff
complaint to make about their mail
service and their transportation service.
At the present time the merchants'
goods arrive from Prince Rupert on
fast passenger boats several days ahead
of the invoices which come by mail on
slower boats. The people also want a
direct service with Prince Rupert.
They are tired of having to go away
around by the Naas River and spend
several hours there. It would be much
better for Stewart and Prince Rupert
to have a direct service, and the northern town is looking to this city to help
The Grand Trunk Pacific dock at
Prince Rupert will be reconstructed
this summer, said Captain C. H. Nicholson manager of the G. T. P. Steamship
service, to the Optimist at the Rupert
Inn last night. The crcosoted piles
have been ordered and as soon as they
arrive the work will begin. The new
wharf will be permanent.
Will it be any larger than the present?
asked the Optimist.
I can't say that it will be at the
present. As business develops and
the necessity arises extensions will,
of course, be made. There is one thing
that we intend to do at once, and while
here I will arrange for it, and that is
to provide proper accomodation for
the passengers at the dock. We intend
to make things as comfortable and
convenient for the travelling public
as possible.. We will establish a waiting room for passengers and ticket
offices and information bureau.    I will
i also arrange for proper accomodation
for passengers getting off and on the
J boats.
THE NEW BOATS.
In reference to the new boats, the
Prince Rupert, the Prince Albert and
the Prince George, Captain Nicholson
said that the two former steamers
would be put into commission either
the first or second week in June.   They
j are both on their way here, while the
i Prince George will leave Newcastle
this week. It will take her about 60
days to come around.
The Captain has just recently returned from a trip to the Old Country where
! he went to see the boats. This is his
first trip to Prince Rupert since'.
The Prince Albert is the old Bruno.
She will be put on the Island route
and is a very tidy boat. New boilers
have been put in and new passenger
accomodation provided. She will carry
30 first class passengers and as many
second-class as desired. Her freight
capacity will be about 1200 tons.
The Princi Rupert will make the
weekly trip between Seattle, Vancouver
and Prince Rupert. She and the Prince
George are twins of 82,000 tons capacity.   They will be equal to any of the
: most modern ocean going steamers
in the way of passenger accomodation.
The state rooms will be of the finest
with hot and cold water in each. Electric
lights,   electric   bells,   reading   lamps,
| salt and fresh water baths, hot ancl cold,
cold storage plant and ice making plant,
wireless telegraph and every other convenience one could think of. The new
boats will be very fine and fit for the
most fastidious.
RUPERT MAIN PORT.
" Rupert will be our home port,"
isaid the General Manager. "All our
energies will be directed to its development. We cannot develop the whole
Coast, but we can make this a most
important harbour and that is what we
intend to do, contrary reports notwithstanding."

Mr. Stonham is preparing for the opening of the branch, and he expects to he
ready for business in a few days. The
new building on Fulton street, just
south of Third avenue, is rapidly Hearing completion. The extensive blasting
just across the road has delayed the
putting in of the windows, but that
work will be accomplished shortly. The
B. N. A. will be the fourth hank in

RUPERT'S   FIRST FIRE.
Corner of First Ave. and Eighth St.
Gutted Last Night.
SALVATION ARMY HERE
Have Purchased Lots and  Will ErecL
a Temple at Once.
The Salvation Army has decided to
establish a branch of their work in
Prince Rupert, and will begin at once
the construction of a barracks as soon
as the plans are completed. The building will seat at least 300 people and will
be situated on Lots 17 and 1" Grenville
Court. Col. Map and Major Morris,
of Staff Headquarters, Toronto, were
in the city last week and consulted
Mr C. D. Newton, who negotiated the
purchase of the land. The price paid
was $6,500.00. Captain Blackburn of
Essington will likely be in charge here.
The Staff officers went on to Hazelton
where they intend arranging for another
branch of the Army. On the return of
Col. Mapp and Major Morris to Prince
Rupert they will let the contract for the
local temple.
Construction Work.
The telegraph gang arrived In Prince
Rupert on Tuesday night last, and on
Wednesday morning work started load-
material for the construction of the
G. T. Pi telegraph lines. Mr. A. B.
Smith, general manager of telegraphs,
has been in the city over a week arranging for the work to be pushed ahead.
It is expected that construction work
will be started to-day. Mr. Rooney will
be in charge of the gang.
The work of track-laying is progressing satisfactorily, and in a day or two
the rails will be laid to the bridge at
Zanardi Rapids. On Tuesday a mile
and a half of track was laid through
the big rock cut just finished by the
contractors.   ���
In a day or two it will be decided
whether or not any provision will be
made for transferring material across
Zanardi Rapids. In the meantime material is being prepared for the slips if
required. The concrete work on the
bridge is progressing so favorably, however, that it is not likely a transfer will
be necessary. In all but three of the
pierz the concrete is now so far advanced that they can work above water
except at very high tide, ond in a day
or tVvo more that difficulty will be overcome.

SEVEN  STEAM  SHOVELS.
Also   a Compressor Plant Coming  For
Foley, Welch & Stewart.
Messrs Foley, Welch & Stewart have
seven new steam shovels on the way
from Marion Ohio,for use on the work
on the upper river among the rocks,
and in the long tunnel at the Canyon.
The Company also has a large compressor
plant coming from Field, B.C., where
it was used in connection with the grade
reduction work on the C. P. R. This
plant is also for the big tunnel at the
Canyon. The Company intends to do
everything possible to get all the grading as far as the Skeena River crossing
done in time to permit track laying to
begin by the end of the present year.
The main idea is to get the track laid
and material up for the bridge at the
crossing. This will enable the contractors
to construct the abutments of the
bridge dumg low water 'next winter,
otherwise the bridge could not be proceeded with fir another year. To accomplish this work Messrs Foley, Welch
& Stewart will, within the next 30 days
put on 2000 men or more if they can get
them. All the camps up the river will be
opened up and also those below
which were closed during the winter on
account of the deep snow.
ISLAND NEWS.
A Drunken Swede.
A report comes from the Queen
Charlotte Whaling Co's wharf that
a Swede, under the influence of liquor
went down to the wharf and started
in to abuse everybody. The steamer
Amur was tied up there and her crc-w
came in for a large share of the abuse.
Finally the mate on the Amur resented
the Swede's abuse and the newly
appointed Provincial Policeman, who
had been reading while the row was
on, supported the Swede and told the
mate to attend to his own affairs.
The Swede is supposed to have got
the whisky from thp Japanese who
had it shipped in in another box not
long ago. The officers and crew of the
Amur do not appreciate the Provincial officer's actions.
Great progress is being made with
the Queen Charlotte Whaling Co's
buildings at. Rose Harbour. A large
force of men have been at work and
now the plant is being installed. The
S.S. Ena was in port last week with
1000 tons of machinery and nfaterial
for   the   Whaiing   Co's   plant.
The Moresby Lumber Company lost
a very valuable horse off the Queen
Charlotte dock a few days ago. The
animal was attached to a buggy and
backed off the dock and the whole
outfit dissappeared at once. The loss
is estimated at over $350.
The S.S. Amur carried the first load
of lumber from Queen Charlotte City.
The cargo consisted of 50,000 feet and
was consigned to Vancouver.
Prince Rupert had its first fire last
night when two small hotels and *four
small stores were wiped out completely.
It was a hot blaze and only the good
work   of   the   citizens   and   volunteers
kept it from spreading.     Fortunately,
the buildings were isolated.  The burned
out buildings were:
Northern Hotel
Butte Lodging House
Butte Cafe
Hayner Bros., Furniture
North Bend Restaurant
Balkan Restaurant and Hotel
All are situated on First Avenue at the
corner  of  Eighth   Street.
The fire started in the Northern
Hotel about 11.30 and immediately
gained great headway. The whole
building was in flames before the occupants were aware of it. They escaped.
The building wjs leased by Mr Carpenter.    Everything was lost.
The alarm was quickly spread, and
the chemical engine and hose wagon
were brought down with as little delay
as possible. The hose, however, had to
connect up at Sixth Street and these
buildings were 1000 feet away. It did
good service, however, in protecting
the small buildings surrounding the
burning block. In the meantime the
Butte Lodging House and the other
buildings mentioned, which were but
a few feet away, caught fire. The crowd
had done good work in the meantime
and carried out nearly all the movable
articles, which were spread along Eighth
Street. The sidewalk was then torn
up to keep the fire from spreading, and
efforts were confined to keep the nearby buildings from catching. This was
accomplished and the danger was over
inside of an hour.
Hayner Bros' furniture stock in
the centre store was mostly saved,
although much of it was damaged
and missing. The firm applied for a
$2,000 policy some weeks ago, but are
uncertain whether it was accepted or no'.
The Balkan Hotel was owned jointly
by Messrs La Trace and Fillipovitch.
The latter had a five year's lease and
recently made $800 worth of improvements in the way of hot water, stoves,
fixtures, etc. He also owned all the
furniture. He carries $1,000 insurance
in the German-American Insurance Co.,
of Rochester. This will not cover the
loss. The Hotel was leased to Mr.
Hacker and the adjoining restaurant
to Mr. Parent. They lose everything,
without insurance. Mr. Filopovich
also loses his lease on the property.
The insurance and  losses are:���
Northern Hotel building and three
store buildings owned by George >C.
Hartley insured for $2,000, divided
among several companies. Mr. Hartley
loses practically everything.
Carpenter and Burr lose all the contents of the Northern Hotel, with no
nsurance.
Charles Slaton, who just purchased
the Butte Cafe and lodging, loses
range and articles not removed from
building.    He had no insurance.

Daily Edition Saturday, May 7
AN EMPIRE MOURNS
All the world mourns King Edward VII. He was, besides being
the sovereign of the greatest empire in the world, the most popular
man in the world. It has been frequently said of him that if Great
Britian were made a republic King Edward would be its first President. He was a man of strong character, great tact and personal
magnetism. Not only was he the figurative monarch of the British
Empire, but he was the real leader in the world's politics; the greatest of world's peers; the first of all the sovereigns, and one who had
the respect of all nations, governments and princes. He was the real
big factor in the world's politics of the day and his reign is marked
with peace, progress and prosperity. With his own subjects, spreading over every continent, in every clime, penetrating every wild,
plowing every sea, to the uttermost parts of the world, he was King
a monarch loved and honored by a loyal people. No empire has so
many races and creeds within its link of governments, and there are
none but would sacrifice self interests and join enthusiastically in any
call from King Edward.
Like all great monarchs and great men, he has had his critics,
but he outlived them all. Few men could accept the responsibility be
had and escape with so little criticism. Certainly few men with his
power, his position and social obligations could accomplish what he
has and maintain the popularity that was bis. Though the greatest
of all monarchs, he was the only one who could appear in public with
perfect safety from the murderous attacks of anarchists and maniacs.
His death coming with such suddenness, is bound to create a temporary uncertainty in the political and financial arena. A few generations ago it would have caused a panic and war, but happily the world
accepts great events and reconciles itself to great losses much more
sanely and passively than was its wont. King Edward is mourned,
the world is bereaved; but, owing greatly to what he and his illustrious mother, the late Queen Victoria, accomplished by their wisdom
and diplomacy, the passing away of the late King and the ascension
of the new will cause grief without tumult.
In reporting a public meeting, where many speakers express many views, it
is not possible to explain in detail all the points and statements presented. The
condensing of a report sometimes permits of a reader misconstruing a remark.
At the meeting Thursday evening T. I). Pattullo is reported as having said that he
could not accept the Labor platform. In fairness to Mr. Pattullo, the Optimist
desires, although not requested by Mr. Pattullo to do so, to explain that the
speaker gave as his reason that he objected to the word "union." He believed
in fair wages and hours of labor, but claims an alderman must represent nonunion as well as union men.
THE BRIN FURNITURE  CO.
New Store on 3rd Ave.  Will Be the
Handsomest North of Vancouver
Prince Rupert is rapidly advancing
and is making great strides citywards.
Its citizens are big and so are the
merchants. Among the biggest are
Brins, of the Brin Furniture Co., on
Gth. Street. Mr. I. J. Brin is the general manager, although his sons, H. K.,
A. R., and L. K., are at the heads
of the various departments and carry
the bulk of the responsibility. Since
coming to Prince Rupert these young
men have built up a wonderfully
large business and they can no longer
handle   it   in   their   present   premises.
In fact, for some time they have been
handicapped   for  lack  of   floor  space.
A NEW STORE.
Room will not hold these energetic
business men back.   They have secured
the western half of the Dr. Mclntyre's
handsome, new block on Third Avenue,
j and will start to move their stock
in on Monday morning.   The store is
125 ft. wide by 100 ft. deep, and the
Brin  Furniture  Co.,  have  two  floors,
j thus giving them 10,000 square feet of
floor space.    The first floor is the base-
| ment, the first half of which will be
used for a show room and the rear
half for store room. It has a concrete
floor and is well lighted and ventilated.
i The second floor will be the main show
room. It is a handsome store with
two immense plate glass windows in
front  and  four large  windows  at  the

To the Electors of Prince Rupert:���
In my opinion the most important
and immediate necessity confronting
the city of Prince Rupert is the establishment of a permanent and adequate
water supply, both for domestic purposes and for fire protection.
The question of sewerage must also
receive attention without delay, particularly in congested parts of the
city.
The electric light system, for which
tenders have already been called, must
be completed as soon as possible,
so that the city will not be in darkness
next winter. ���
Plank roadways and sidewalks to
isolated parts of the city must be
provided in order to give to those of
moderate means an opportunity to build
at a reasonable cost.
The building of permanent roadways
must receive the early attention of
the council.
By-laws having reference to health,
fire protection and all other matters
relating to the internal economy of
the city must, and of course, will retrieve immediate attention.
A campaign of publicity should be
inaugurated and every encouragement given to induce the establishment
of industrial enterprizes here.
I am in favour of the granting of
liquor licenses and their proper and
due regulation. In so saying, I am not
to be interpreted as an advocate of
the liquor traffic. I believe that the
license question is one in which there
should be uniformity throughout the
Province.
1 am opposed to the over running
of the city with thieves, thugs and
tinhorns, and believe in decency and
orderliness.
I am in favour of an eight hour day,
and if elected will insist that eight hours
shall constitute a days work on all
city work. I shall also insist that minimum and fair wage clauses be inserted
in all city contracts.
I am opposed to the employment of
Asiatics.
I believe that wherever any city work
is to be performed by contract, that
sealed tenders should be called for
and opened in the presence of those
who tender, should they desire to be
present.
I believe that as far as the finances
of the city will permit that the city
should own and operate its own public utilities.
If elected, I shall use my influence
to urge on the Government and th
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, the
claims of the city to a grant of vacant
lands al present reserved for park
premises.
I shall also join with the council in
urging both upon the Provincial and
Dominion Governments the expenditure
at this place, of monies for the city's
improvement along lines within their
respective jurisdictions.
I believe that the city should spend
11s much money as possible in permanent
improvements Care should be taken
that every dollar is spent judiciously,
so that by the time the railroad is
completed, we shall have a model city,
with all modern conveniences. Pending
completion of the railway this would
furnish employment to a large number
of men which would inure to the benefit
of the city.
If elected, all my efforts will be
directed along non-partisan lines, and
I am absolutely free from party or personal pledges of any kind.

The Prince Rupert halibut fishing
fleet is on the increase. This mor-
ing six boats were in for minor repairs

fishing just now was only fair. There
was nothing unusual to report.
It is encouraging to no?e so many
citizens improving the appearance of
their residences by levelling the lawns
sowing grass seed and planting flower
beds. These are things which help
to make a beautiful city and the citizens deserve credit.

The qualification of candidates for
alderman is an important matter which
the candidates should look into before
nomination day. In addition to being
a British subject, a property holder,
etc., he must have been a property
owner in the city for at least six months.
There may be some of the candidates
who cannot qualify.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
'"THE germ of both Life and
* Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which 1 have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

OUR
MINING
Report on Stewart
Dr. Moresby, president and manager
of the Portland Wonder mine, and John
Peterson, the locator of the Red Cliff
mine and the Bear River Canyon,
one of the pioneer prospectors of the
Stewart camp, who has been in the
district for the past six years, recently
returned from the mining town. They
brought with them some very fine
samples of free milling silver recently
taken from the O. K. fraction.
Speaking of the getting of this ore
Dr. Moseley said that a few days ago,
a shot was fired in a tunnel which is
being driven which blew out native
silver in all directions. The ore was very
rich, probably carrying $2,000 to the
ton. The piece of rock which the doctor
has with him shows the clean silver
all through.
Speaking of his own mine, the Portland Wonder, Dr. Moseley said that
they had just struck some rich steel
galena. This has not yet been assayed,
but it looked as if it would assay high
even for ore of that kind which is always rich. This was on the middle vein
tunnel. The stringers seven feet wide
are all shot through with galena. The
Company is also driving on the east
vein and have got in about 120 feet
on a ledge 12 feet wide. This is rich
argentite, native silver, galena and
iron, and averages $50 to $"50 to the ton.
Speaking of the other mines, Dr.
Moseley said that a large amount of
work had been done on the Stewart
properties and was being continued.
The new ledge was making a very good
showing.
The Portland canal properties the
doctor described as the best developed
of all the Portland canal mines. They
have a concentrator on the ground and
arrangements are being made to instal
a second. An aerial tram is being used
to convey the ore to tide water, a distance of something over a mile. They
have 100,000 tons of ore in sight, and
will ship a large amount thisyear,
commencing almost immediately. This,
he thinks, will be a dividend paying
mine within the year.
The O. K. Fraction is 2,3000 feet
lower than the Portland canal, and 1,100
feet lower than the Stewart properties,
showing that the ore bodies extend
down to that depth, and no one knows
how much lower.
Mr. Peterson, speaking of the Red
Cliff property, said that they had made
a very good showing. A large amount
of machinery had been taken in, but,
unfortunately, the boilers had not been
taken over the road before the snow
broke. This was, however, only a matter of detail. They are driving a long
tunnel and the showings are very good.
On Bear River Canyon, a four foot
ledge has been found carrying $40 to
$100 to the ton, and another ledge of
grey copper shows 700 ounces of silver
to the ton. The whole valley Is rich,
and there will be great doings in Ihe
near future.
Stewart is rapidly building up. Already there are about 1,000 people in
the camp, and from 40 to 100 go in on
every boat. While the wharfage is not
large the cargo is discharged on scows.
On the 19th. a number of horses were
landed there for Mackenzie & Mann
to be used for logging for their new mill.
Both visitors expressed a hope that
now that the provincial government
were getting a large income from this
camp they would be generous in the
matter of appropriations for roads and
bridges and other improvements.

EVERY DAY FOR

At the request of many of the electors
I have decided to be a candidate for
election as alderman at the forthcoming
election.
In order to place myself in a proper
light before the public, I would say
that I am free from all clique and party
influence.
The first council of Prince Rupert will
have many important issues to deal
with, and if I am elected I will advocate
and endeavour, to the best of my ability, to push through the following measures, and any others which may arise
from time to time, and are of advantage
to the city and citizens.
The immediate borrowing of as large
a sum of money as, the credit of the city
will stand; if possible, a million dollars
or more, this to be covered by the
issuance of debentures of as long a
period and as small a rate of interest
as possible.
The immediate construction of permanent roadways and sidewalks in the
localities where they are most needed.
The completion of an adequate water
works and sewerage system.
The appointment of a competent
city engineer and the immediate organization of a police force and fire department.
We are all aware that the railroad
will not be operating into Prince Rupert
for at least two years, but. in the meantime if we are successful in floating a
loan of sufficient proportion we will be
able to commence public works which
will establish a payroll that will keep
business going, and in these days of
advancement, time is discounted many
years ahead. It would be a wise policy
to complete these works now to be ready
for the incoming of the railroad.
The appointment of a competent
building inspector, which, however, could
possibly be managed by the chief of the
fire  department.
To protect, and also to assist in the
advancement of all industries in Prince
Rupert.
The inauguration of a publicity department to be under the control of
one of the City officials, say the city
clerk.
Dealing with the subject of liquor
licenses. This is a matter entirely in
the hands of the citizens. At the same
time I have no hesitation in stating
that I am in favour of the granting of
Hotel licenses.
I  strongly advocate that the  City
should own and operate all its own
utilities, such as telephones, waterworks,
tramways and electric lights, and to
put them on a revenue earning basis by
the appointment of competent managers.
That an eight hour day system be
i established for labourers and mechanics
and that a fair wage be paid for same.
I am emphatic on the employment of
J white labour.
I   would   be   in   favour  of  contrac
as well as day labour, as circumstances
and nature of work will be a matter of
i economics for the council to consider.
If any further matters should arise
j which are of importance to the electorate,
I am prepared to state my views definitely concerning them.
Yours respectfully,
G.   W.   ARNOTT.

Larger Water Mains
H. Douglas, on behalf of the water
committee, sent a letter to the secretary of last night's public meeting,
asking that the committee be authorized to purchase pipe to enlarge the
mains from Fulton to 8th street. This
is the congested district and the present pipe is only a two inch one, and
of no service in case of fire. Mr.
Douglas addressed the meeting along
the above lines and Mr. Manson,
who had suggested the plan to the
water committee, moved that the request be granted and the work gone
on with at once. The motion was
seconded and carried.
