,0NDON EXCITED OVER MURDER
apers   Publishing  Rumors
Every Few Minutes.
Kppen, the Murderer, Believed to
|Be Hiding in City and His Arrest
ilomentarily    Expected��� Inquest
On the Remains.
(Special to the Optimist)
.ondon, July 15.���London was never
excited as it has become over the
ppen murder case. New rumors in
mection with it are springing up
ry minute and are being published
!h avidity by the newspapers. Extras
taining the alleged developments
he case were issued every few minutes
ing this afternoon. There is no end to
Ii excitement the case is producing.
t is firmly believed that Crippen, the
band of the woman, has not left for
home in the United States but
hiding    in     London.      Scotland
Yard officials have consequently a
cordon around the city which they
declare the criminal cannot break through
and they express the confident opinion
that he will soon be captured.
���The remains of the wife were so
badly mutilitated and decomposed that
it will be difficult to prove identity
satisfactorily. This will have to be
accepted on circumstantial evidence,
Mr. Pieper, the government analyist,
declares that the women was poisoned.
A surgery expert has now the remains
under examination and as soon as he is
able to report the remains will be quietly
buried.
Mile. Levine, with whom Crippen
is believed to be living, is being hunted
for. It is believed she may be found
masquerading as a boy, it having been
discovered that Crippen bought a suit
of boy's clothes recently that would
be about a fit for the woman.
The inquest is to be held tomorrow.
There will be a large number of witnesses
and the case gone into fully.
APPEAL  BARS  BIBLE
Catholics of Illinois Object to King
James Version
Springfield, 111., July 12.���Religious
exercises, including the reading of the
Bible, are barred from the public
schools by a decision of the supreme
court to-day. The Catholic residents
of Winchester, Scott county, protested
against the use of the King James version of the Bible in the public schools
and commenced proceedings to stop it.
The lower court refused to grant the
writ, but the supreme court granted it.
Justice Dunn wrote the opinion, but
Justices Hand and Cartwright dissented. Among the things the ��� Catholics
complained of were the daily reading
of the Bible, the singing of certain
songs and the recitation of the Lord's
prayer.
To Inspect Canadian Missions
London, July 14.���Right Rev. Arthur
Foley Winington-Ingram, Bishop of
London, will sail for Canada in August
to inspect the missions there.
DIRECTORS CHOSEN FOR FAIR
Will Send a Fine Exhibit to
Vancouver Exhibition.
Provisional Organization of the
Skeena District Agricultural and
Industrial Association���Starts Out
With Cash in the Treasury.
"The Skeena District Agricultural
and Industrial Association" was last
night organized with the election of a
provisional directorate, and what is
far more important the new organization
started off with cash in the treasury.
This announcement will give much
pleasure to the out of town readers of
the Optimist, as all the agriculturalists,
miners, lumbermen, fishermen, and
others of the district are enthusiastic for
an opportunity to show Prince Rupert
and her visitors what they can and what
they are producing.
The  public  meeting  called   by  the
mayor and held in the Board to Trade
rooms last night was not a crowded
assembly in the beginning, neither was
it at all enthusiastic upon the subject
for which it was called. It seemed at
first, in fact, that the general opinion
of those present was doubtful if a creditable exhibition could be got together this
year, and all the difficulties in the way
and' the objections to attempting such
an enterprise came first. The discussion
was long and interesting and in the end
narrowed down to a clear-cut business
proposition that is well worthy the
support of all and will undoubtedly
receive it.
Mayor Stork called the meeting to
order and George D. Tite was elected
chairman and G. W. Nickerson secretary.
The Mayor said that in connection with
the assistance from the city council the
council had expressed its hearty sympathy with the movement but did not feel
disposed to go very far financially for
the reason that they did not have the

SUFFERING AT CAMPBELLTOWN
AFTER GREAT FIRE
Hundreds of Families Forced to
Sleep . in the Open Air���King
George Cables His Sympathy and
Condolences.
(Special to the Optimist)
St John, N. B., July 15.���Heavy rains
added to the sufferings of the homeless
at Campbelltown, and thoroughly soaked
hundreds of families forced to sleep in
the open air." Owing to a mistake the
tents which were sent by the military
department for the relief of the sufferers
were delayed in reaching there. For a
time, too, there was a general shortage
of both food and clothing. Relief is now
going in rap Illy and it is believed that
all will be cared for.
King George has sent a cable of sympathy and condolence with the sufferers and has enquired for further
particulars.
It is estimated that the fire loss will..
be three million.

(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 15.���The first Bitter
Creek prospectus issued so far is occupying a prominent place in many of the
metropolitan newspapers. It is called
the British Columbia Goldfields Company
of Canada, and the capital is half a
million dollars. The date when the stock
books will be opened and the shares
offered for sale is to be announced later.
Ottawa, July 15.���W. Brock, Dominion director in geology, in a report made
to the government upon the strike at
Bitter creek, Portland canal, compares
the general formation and the ore
bodies to those of the Treadwell mine at
Douglas, Alaska, which he cites as mines
that are a world famous model of steady
production.

Zodiac Dirigible Balloon Reaches
New York���Craft to Be Used to
Establish First Aerial Ferry Operated in the United States.
New York, July 13.���According to
this morning's American, a Zodiac dirigible balloon was brought into New
York, July 4 aboard the steamer George
Washington by Stuart Davis of Providence, R. I., who intends to try to
establish the first actual ferry line in
America.
In the near future the balloon is
to carry passengers on regular trips
between Narragansett pier and Newport, a distance of eleven miles in an
air line. It is expected it will be in
operation  within   the  next  six  weeks.
The Zodiac is 100 feet long and non-
rigid in construction. The craft is to
sail only on calm days and it is ex-
pected^the trip will be within an hour.
If the venture proves successful other
air-ships will be added to the fleet.
For Government Wharf at Stewart
to Gillette & Macdonald
Gillette & Macdonald, contractors,
who are building the Mann wharf at
Stewart, are in town today on their way
to Cassiar where they will look after
business interests. To the Optimist
Mr. Gillette said that the Canadian
Northern was nearing completion. They
had been delayed somewhat by the lack
of lumber, and that is one thing they
are looking after now.
Government Wharf
"We got the contract on Wednesday
to build the new government wharf."
said Mr. Macdonald, "and we have
ordered the piling already and are having
the lumber cut. This work will be started
immediately and pushed, ahead as hard
as we can make it go. " '
The Grand Trunk Inrt had fifty guests
yesterday, which was one of the banner
days for the number of guests of the
present season.

The city's exchequer was enriched
this morning to the extent of $600 and
$2.00 in costs. Chas. Gyr, one of the
proprietors of Jack's Place was found
guilty of having permitted to be sold
on his premises spirituous liquor. It
appears that the whiskey and beer were
served by Chas. Horn, Gyr's partner.

London, July 14.���The new Russo-
Japan treaty, which practically closes
the open door to Manchuria, is not only
being eagerly discussed by the home
government and that of the United
States, but the other countries are finding their commercial interests assailed
by the closing of the treaty ports and
are likely to take a hand in the settlement. Germany is particularly on
the alert, maintaining her old position of hostility against Japan's aggression in Korea. The feeling in Berlin
has been intensified by the return of
the German ambassador to Japan.
Baron Mumm von Schwartzenstein,
who has made a tour of investigation
in Korea and South Manchuria, reports
among other remarkable evidences of
Japanese activity that 2,500 tons of
coal are being taken daily from the
Fushan mines, which Japan acquired
by the Portsmouth treaty.
Three shafts had been sunk into
coal seam 140 feet thick when the
ambassador visited the mines. Two
others are nearly ready, and a total
production of 7,000 tons per day is expected.
Baron Mumm says that the Antung-
Mukden railroad, of 170 miles, which
is being converted from a military
narrow road to the normal gauge, will
be finished in the autumn of 1912.
The Korean government is paying six
millions for the construction of a bridge
across the Yalu, near Antung. The line
has 183 bridges and 21 tunnels.

Four liquor cases were called at the

PRINCE RUPERT
IN HARD LUCK
COMES INTO PORT WITH ONLY
ONE ENGINE WORKING
The Other Broke Down on Way Up
From Vancouver���Was Also Delayed Going South By Breaking of
Conveyor at Nanaimo.
The Prince Rupert arrived here at
one o'clock yesterday morning, which was
unexpected, as Mr. McMaster had been
advised by wireless not to expect
her here before yesterday afternoon.
While on her way up and as she was
passing Union Bay some part of one of
her engines got out of gear, and the
vessel stopped for a while. Then Capt.
Johnson determined to keep going as
long as he could with one engine, and
after proceeding in this way for some time
sent a wireless that his boat was "not to
be expected here before the afternoon.
But with only one engine an average
speed of fourteen knots an hour was
developed. This so surprised Captain
Johnson that he exultingly said this
morning���"There seems nothing that
she can't do. I'll come from Stewart
backwards as a test."
The boat had over two hundred passengers, and before she resumed her
journey from here to Stewart, at nine
o'clock yesterday morning she had landed
all the Prince Rupert freight. She carried
no mail. But when she returned from
Stewart this morning the repairs to the
engine that bucked had been made and
both engines were working splendidly.
Although the Prince Rupert did not
carry governmeut mail on her trip south,
she had a pile of public mail big enough
to keep purser Cooper busy sorting all
the way to Vancouver.
The Prince Rupert was also unfortunate on her down trip. She called to coal
at Nanaimo and found that the conveyor
had broken down. This delayed her
four hours.
Another   Missionary
Mr. Murdock, a missionary for the
Presbyterian church in Canada, and who
preached in the Presbyterian church last
Sunday, left yesterday morning for Queen
Charlotte Islands, where he will take
charge of the mission fields there.
Fine Team for Telkwa
R. J. McDonnell returned from the
coast the first of the week, bringing a
fine team cf carriage horses, and on
Wednesday started for Telkwa, where
he is one of the owners of the New
Telkwa   hotel.���Omineca   Herald.
Draughts Never Cause Colds.
Dr. Sir Frederick Treves astonished
the public meeting by declaring that
"the idea that colds are caused by
draughts is absurd. No cold ever had
such an origin. Colds are the origin
not of draughts, but of stuffy rooms."
Other famous London physicians back
up Sir Frederick in holding that no
cold was ever caused by a draught.
SOLEMN WARNING TO ALL
Suppose He Had Published "Among
Those Present Were".
Frederick, C. Beyer, a well-known
Cleveland editor, told at a recent press
banquet a newspaper story.
"A Medina editor died," he said,
"and was of course, directed to ascend
to the Abode of the Just. But during
the ascent the editor's journalistic
curiosity asserted itself,  and he said:
"Is it permitted for one to have a
look at���er���the other place?"
"Certainly/ was the gracious reply,
and accordingly a descent to the other
place was made. Here the editor found
much to interest him. He scurried about,
and was soon lost to view.
"His angelic escort got worried at
last and began a systematic search for
his charge. He found him at last, seated
before a furnace, fanning himself and
gazing at the people in the fire. On the
door of the 'furnace was a plate saying,
'Delinquent Subscribers.' fef?$$'-*^
" 'Come/ said the angel to the editor,
'we must be'going.'       f t-'ftHItltafe
" 'You go on/ the editor answered,
without liftingjiis eyes. 'I'm not coming.
This is heaven enough for me.' "

SERMON FOR PIONEERS
The genial Captain R. H. Stretch has
been again bursting into poetry. He is
well known to all the far northerm
pioneers on this coast having been chief
hydrographer of the White Pass railway from Skagway over the forbidding
summit of White Pass into Yukon
territory. He still follows the fortunes
of the engineer Hawkins and is now
engaged on the Alaska Northwestern
running from Cordova. Also, he still
jiuts in a little spare time inditing a
jingle, as the following is an evidence:
Be a man! Be a man!
Cast aside the city shackles,
Yards of ribbon, miles of tape.
Join   the   band   of   men   that   tackles
Nature in her wildest shape.
There is something more than slumber,
Shelter, .food,  and smiling face,
If  you  would  not  die  forgotten
Unremembered by the race.
Be a man!   Be a man!
Hew a way through mountain gorges.
Let your threads be threads of steel;
Pierce the summits,  span the rivers,
Heedless though your heads may reel.
Link the outposts of the border,
Open up each trackless space,
Spend your life in making easy
Pathways for the coming race.
Be a man!   Be a man!
Do not think- the world is conquered;
Half the world is yet unknown���
Deserts thirst for laughing waters,
Swamps are foul in every zone.
Open up Andean mountains���
Africa's forests need the light,
Tropic isles await your coming,
Be a factor in the fight.
Be a man!   Be a man!
All your brain, and brawn and muscle
Are not worth a thought today
If they spend their power in pleasure���
Leave the cities, give them play!
Better far a life of action,
Motives great, or thought intense;
Break a cog if such be needed,
But let life be no pretense.
Be a man!   Be a man!
Face the lonley wilderness;
Honest work will never kill���
'Twill but clear the brain of cobwebs;���
Better dreams their place will fill;
Health will come and fame may follow,
Or if beaten in the strife
You have been no idle watcher
You have been a part of life!
Be a man!   Be a man!
Kipling's Latest Attempt.
They talk of Kipling's latest rhyme; my
friends come 'round and quote it, and all
agree that it's a crime. I don't believe
he wrote it. The man who used to beat
the drum with lots of brawn and gristle-
do you suppose he'd ever come to blowing on a whistle? I've heard a desert
lion's roar, that sent the beasts retreating
you cannot fool me on that score���I know
when sheep are bleating. I've read my
Kipling pretty well; I like his blooming
phrases; his verses have a noble swell,
and reek of smoke and blazes ; and he
who wrote them was a man, a man whose
voice was tender; his harp was fashioned
on a plan that made the people wonder.
And now there comes a pipe absurd
from some milk-nurtured stripling, and
you remark: "The voice you've heard
is all that's left of Kipling?" Come off,
my friends! Avaunt and scat! It was
true fire that warmed him! He couldn't
write such dope as that, unless you
chloroformed him.        ��� Walt Mason.

Mother���What for, dear ?

Bridge   Hints.
The following advice to bridge players
is given by D. B. Van Buren :
With the years against you, never
venture a weak heart declaration unless
you have diamonds enough to pull
through with.
Holding a commanding club, don't
hesitate to tell the cook it looks like
rain, if the soup justifies the declaration.
If you hold a good heart, don't discard
it.
Never waste time attempting to
finesse when your wife is obviously
leading up to a new broadcloth suit.
If you find an unguarded knave, kick
him and run.
If you are short of honors, never
mind���many an obscure man dies rich���
The Smart Set.
Compounded the Felony
She���Did you see where some man declares that women are not honest?
He���Well,  he's  right  in saying so.
She (fiercely)���When did you ever
know  me  to  do  a  dishonest  thing?
He (tenderly)���When you robbed me
of my peace of mind and stole my heart,
you dear little thief.
Talking about spite fences; did you
ever hear of a hedge hog?

Furnished Rooms May Be
Rented Profitably.
Just to have "furnished rooms
to rent" is no great feat���or novelty. The number of people whose
homes are in furnished rooms���
"homes within homes"���is very
large.
And among the people who live
in "one room homes" are an increasing number who like to have
things a little better than usual.
They like to have a pleasant
room, and they like to have it
fitted up DISTINCTIVELY, with
taste.
They will cheerfully, eagerly,
pay for SOMETHING BETTER
in the way of a furnished room.
Fix yours up to please the particular tenants, and ADVERTISE
ACCORDINGLY, and you'll get
back your investment with profit
in a very brief time.

FORT  GEORGEfROUTE
Government   Road   From    Queanel
to Be  Ready Thia Season.
Victoria, July 12.���Telegraphic advices from John A. Fraser, M. L. A.,
for Cariboo, to the public works minister state that the new road providing
through connection between Quesnel
and Fort George will be completed
this season, which will meet all actual
demands as the river route would in
any case be utilized during the summer
for economic reasons. Mr. Fraser wires:
"Road gang are working from both ends
on the Blackwater road. Five miles
at this end are completed. Unable to say
how much from the other end but presume about the same."
About thirty-five miles in all are
required to complete the connection.
The work is in charge of road Superintendent Malcolm McNiven, who
in view of the increased demand for
traffic facilities, deserted his other
work of supervision, laid out the route
personally and personally is seeing
that construction is rushed, in the execution of emphatic directions from the
minister.
DEFENDS   NEW   LAW
Deputy
Attorney-General   Says    It
Is No Hardship.
Vancouver, July 13.���"There is a
widespread misconception respecting the
Companies' Act which recently went
into force. It has been erroneously
stated that every extra-provincial company doing business in this province will
be obliged to pay taxes based on the
amount of its capital. Now this is hardly
the case, because all companies which
have 50 per cent of their capital at the
home office are exempt except for the
payment of a fee of $250. This fee is
not an annual tax but covers their business operations in British Columbia
for all time to come. Ninety-nine out
of every hundred extra-provincial companies will only have to pay that $250
fee," said Mr. H. A. Maclean, deputy
attorney-general, Victoria, to The Province at the Hotel Vancouver today.
"Scores of companies have either
registered and paid the fee or have
written asking for information and
signifying their intention of complying with the law," he continued, "so
this much criticized legislation involves no hardship on extra-provincial companies doing business in British
Columbia, Once they register and file
their incorporation papers the people
of this province will have in opportunity
of ascertaining the financial status of
the companies they are doing business
with. Other provinces of the Dominion
have enacted similar laws."

they got beer and whiskey in glasses
from Horn. The accused said he was
not present when the liquor was sold
although one of the witnesses said that
he went out to get the beer for them and
that Horn came back with it. The
whiskey was kept in the back room.
Jack's Place is supposed to be a
grocery store and a soft drink saloon,
but the magistrate was convinced that
hard drinks are also dispensed there.
He explained to Gyr that it is as great
an offense to allow liquor to be sold
on his premises as to sell it himself.
Then a fine of $100 was imposed.coupled
with the hotel license fee of $500 for
six months and $2.00 in costs. If Gyr
does not settle, his premises will be
seized and sold and if the proceeds from
the sale of the stock does not satisfy
the claim of the crown then Gyr will
spend three months in New Westminster

(Special to the Optimist)
St. John, N. B., July 15.���Looting
has broken out in Campbelltown, and
a request was made that troops be sent
to the assistance of the police. The
latter, it was reported, were unable
to control the situation. With so many
hundreds starving it was difficult to
make arrests or to keep the people from
helping themselves wherever an opportunity of obtaining food was presented. But the rabble had gone further
and several safes had been broken
into and their conlents stolen. Upon
this representation troops have been
sent from here.
The whole of the burned districts
are being ransacked and the debris
worked over for valuables. The soldiers
will guard the property and prevent
further disturbance.

that Mr. Mutimer was to leave on the

penitentiary. In this case he did not
intend to be very severe as the prisoner
had a previous good character, but he
was bound to punish him and to set an
example to all others who are in the
habit of taking an orange, or plums or
anything else that is on a ship. Thus
Woogist was given six months.
Ever since navigation up the Skeena
river began the transportation companies
have been troubled with people breaking
open the boxes and helping themselves
to the contents. Boxes of fruit, liquor,
groceries and everything that is tempting
have been broken into and the companies
have had to make good the loss which
amounts to several thousands of dollars
yearly. The captain of the Hazelton
recently put a man on to watch the
cargo and Woogist was the first victim.
All others caught doing the same thing
will be treated similarily.
Steve could not talk English very well
and an interpreter was secured, but once
during the trial Steve got excited and
talked English quite fluently with one
of the witnesses whose evidence he did
not agree with, and he had to be called
to order. After sentence had been passed
Woogist wanted the option of paying a
fine, but the judge would not stand for
it.

MINING
SHIPMENT OF ORE
Ikeda Mines Limited Sent 32 SAGk.
of   Ore   South.
A shipment of thirty-two. sacks of
copper and gold ore, or ove. a ton and a
half, was made this week by the Ikeda
Mines Limited. The ore was brought
over on the Str. Prince Albert on Tuesday
last and was gathered up by the Prince
Rupert this morning and taken south.
This is the first ore shipped out of here
this year and the first by the new owners
of the Heed* Mines Ltd., and the heavy
sacks created no little interest among the
people on the wharf. The mines from
the Islands will in a short time send
large quantities of ore via Prince Rupert
and it wfll be one of the main cargoes out
of here.
New Strike Near Babine
Reports have been received of a
new strike near the southern end of
Babine lake on Fifteenmile creek which
flows into the lake from the west. C. S,
Anderson was the pioneer prospector
in that vicinity and his Silver Fox claim
and others are under bond to Portland
people at the present time Othere men
went in this year and more claims were
staked on new finds which are claimed
to be even better than the first locations.
Samples of the first ore found assayed as
high as 480 ounces in silver. At that
point Babine lake is only about fourteen
miles from the location line of the G. T.
P., with practically no divide to cross.
Silver Cup's New Tunnel
The No. 2 tunnel being driven on the
Silver cup picked up the ore last Saturday when the miners broke through the
footwall rock into the ore. Owing to
the presence of slide rock at the point
where the vein is covered, it was decided
to start the tunnelon the footwall side,
to strike the lead at an angle. No reports have been received further than
that the ore had not been cross-cut, but
merely broken into about a foot. Mr.
Campbell is much pleased with the show
ing.

A Well Known Member of Dominion
House Gives Valuable Hint.
W. M. German, M. P. for Welland
county, Ontario, with Mrs. German are
guests at the Inn today. Mr. German
is one of the cleverest and best known
members of the Dominion House, having
frequently been mentioned for a position
in the cabinet and on the Railway Board.
At the present time Mr. and Mrs. German
are taking a holiday trip in the west and
included Prince Rupert in their itinerary.
Speaking to a member of the Optimist
Mr. German said "Your city and its
progress astounds me. In ten years you
will have a wonderful city. There is
one thing which strikes me as worthy
of your attention. Now that you are
preparing plans for permanent streets
your council should insist that every
telegraph and telephone and light pole
should be removed from the streets
and the wires buried. It is easily done
now. Nothing mars the beauty of a city
more than ugly poles and wires, and
every city of any consequence is trying
to get rid of them."
Mr. German was keenly interested in
the city and gathered a lot of information.

When Your Pipe Goes Out
When the ashes fill up the fragrant bowl,
And the flickering embers die ,
And the last sweet puff, like a winging
soul,
Escapes from your lips like a sigh,
Then you wake from your dream with a
sudden start
And rub your eyes as in doubt,
While maybe a pain sort of tugs at your
heart.
It's the way when your pipe goes out.

CHOSEN FOR FAIR
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
money to spend. There were so many
hundred calls upon the council for expenditure that although they would
have like to have voted $1000 toward
the proposition they felt unable to do
so.
Aid. Naden asked what the estimated
expense of the fair would be and its
probable assets. This was told by Chairman Tite, who stated at length what had
been done by that association, all of
which has already been reported in
these columns. Mr. Nicholson, who has
done all the hard work in connection
with the project, added to this report
and made it clear there was a good fund
of enthusiasm for the project to draw on
in the outlying districts.
From this point on every possibility
and every objection was thoroughly
discussed Mr. Morris contending all the
time that although not a large exhibition could be arranged for this year he
thought a start should be made for
future years. The Board of Trade had
taken the matter 'tp last year bat had
had to abandon it and it would never
do to give it 'up again. Mr. Nickerson
said the outlying people had been appointed members of the general committee and it would never do to back
down now.
Mr. Morris proceeded to show they
could get organized and make something
of a show. They could organize and incorporate and thus have a permanent
organization which would be able to
make a large fair next year.
Mr. Manson spoke in a similar trend,
explaining the course to be followed,
which was added to by Mr. Morrison,
who had had practical experience of
agricultural fairs.
Gradually the discussion, in which
all present took a part, worked itself
down to practical issues, and Mr.
Morrison chry'stallized t'he prevailing
sentiment into a motion that the meeting proceed to form an association. This
was carried and the next step was long
discussed. It ended in a motion by
Mr. Morrison that the meeting proceed
to appoint a board of provisional directors and this was done by the election
of the following: Messrs. Morris, Naden,
Button, Manson, Christiansen, Peck,
Dawson, Morrison, Thompson, Crippen,
Mobley, Halsey, Stephens, Nelson.Sawle
Stewart, Tite, John Kirkpatrick.Stork,
Hilditch. Aid. Mobley pointed out
that the member's of the council had
meetings every night and therefore
would be unable to give their attendance
to the meetings of the directorate.
Aid. Naden said practically the same
thing, so other names were substituted.
for the members of the city council.
Mayor Stork and Mr. Manson were
made provisional honorary presidents
of the association, and then the meeting
adjourned and the directorate met
forthwith and proceeded to business.
It had been pointed out all through
the meeting that the most important
point was the selection of a good hustler,
on regular salary, to act as secretary.
He would really have charge of the whole
affair, doing all the work and saddled
all the responsibility for the result. A
committee of three was appointed to
attend to this matter. Among other
things decided was that an exhibit should
be prepared, if possible, in time for the
Vancouver exhibition, and also the same
exhibit that was made here to be sent
to the New Westminster fair in October.
In the foregoirig an important feature
was overlooked. Upon the carrying of
Mr. Morrison's motion that the meet-
proceed to organize a motion was
passed that everyone be invited
to show his bona fides by
immediately paying his membership
fee to the association. This they cheerfully did, so that the new secretary will
have real cash to begin his duties with.
Mr. Halsey acted as secretary of the
provisional directorate and he was
strongly urged to accept the position
of permanent secretary. The next general meeting will be on Saturday evening, when the directorate will report.
COLD QUARTZ FOUND
Another Strike Made Beyond Bitter
Creek That Looks Good
Word was received in town this morning of another gold strike made beyond
Bitter Creek. A few days ago a lone
prospector who had been out for several
weeks tramping over the hills blew
into Stewart and left Mason and Simpson a good sized piece of gold quartz
which is very rich in mineral. A piece
of pure gold the size of the head of a
small hat pin was picked out with the
fingers and* the precious metal can be
seen with the naked eye. The prospector had no wonderful story to tell.
He did not say how extensive the find
was nor the depth of the vein. He
said he only took a couple of blasts and
then returned to town with the samples.
A number of Stewart people have gone
put to see it and will report in a few days.
As yet the strike has caused no particular flutter but more wil! be known
when it has been assayed and the party
who have started return.
Ottawa, July 14.���Maj. Moodie of
the Royal Northwest Nounted Police
will accompany Earl Grey to Hudson
Bay. His excellency will sail for Canada
on Friday and start for his Hudson
Bay trip about the middle of August.
AMATEUR NIGHT TO-NIGHT
Some   Curious   Performances   May
Be Expected at the Empress
"David Harum" succeeded in bringing
out a full house at the Empress theatre
last night, and the big audience went
away much impressed with the clever
work of Carl Caldwell as David Harum,
the banker and horse trader.
Tonight the company are repeating
"The Great Divide," but the most interest is centered in the big amateur
contests, which immediately follow the
play tonight. Quite a number of stunts
are booked, and the contest part promises to be a hummer.
Tomorrow night the company closes
its engagement here with "Jesse James"
one of the most sensational melodramas
ever written. It is from events in the
lives of the James boys from the burning
of their home in Springfield, Mo., up to
the death of Jesse at the hands of
Bob Ford and the subsequent surrender
and pardon of Frank James.
While very melodramatic the play is
full of good comedy, which will be
handled by Carl Caldwell as " Lije," a
typical Missouri negro.
